Dr. Mclean: Well, I know I'm leaving mother and son in good hands.

Ridge: Thank you, doctor. Thank you very much.

Brooke: This is so incredible. Is there really no doubt?

Dr. Mclean: Definitely not. It's definitely Ridge's child. I'll see you tomorrow.

Ridge: Okay. Can I get you anything? A glass of water? Oxygen?

Stephanie: This is a mistake.

Ridge: Oh, come on, mother.

Stephanie: You can't really believe that this is your child.

Ridge: I've never stopped believing it. Not in my heart. It's just that science finally caught up with us and proved it.

Stephanie: She's managed this somehow.

Brooke: I was just as shocked as you are, when Nick told us.

Stephanie: Has she convinced you somehow to lie for her?

Nick: She didn't know. No one knew. Except my mother.

Stephanie: Your mother?

Nick: It's Ridge's child. Get used to it, 'cause that's just who it is.


Thorne: Hitting the hard stuff, huh?

Eric: Thorne? What are you doing here?

Thorne: Why am I not with my new bride, you mean?

Eric: Yes. Don't tell me the honeymoon's over already.

Thorne: No, no, not a chance. Listen, Ridge was saying some things earlier, at the wedding, that I --

[ Phone rings ]

Eric: No, it's not them.

Thorne: It's not who?

Eric: Ridge and Brooke. She's having the baby.

Thorne: What?

Eric: I know, it's early. She didn't get a chance to even go to the hospital.

Thorne: Well, where is she?

Eric: She's at home. The doctor's on his way. But they're just -- they're not certain he's going to get there in time.

Thorne: Are you saying that Ridge could deliver this child?

Eric: Yeah. Quite possibly, yes.

Thorne: Oh, my god. And Nick is in jail.

Eric: Well, no, no, he's not. He and Massimo were released. The charges were dropped.

Thorne: Wow. So, Nick and Ridge could be there together?

Eric: Yeah, along with your mother. I know, I know. I would've tried to stop her -- but all she did was take off and leave me a note.

Thorne: What does she think she can accomplish?

Eric: She wants to get Ridge out of there.

Thorne: Well, it's gonna be a three-ring circus.

Eric: Yes, it is. So, what are you saying? Something about Ridge, and the wedding?

Thorne: Yeah.

Eric: What is it? Is there a problem?

Thorne: Well, let's just say I'm hoping to avoid one.

Eric: What is it, son?

Thorne: He's overstepping.

Eric: Overstepping in what way?

Thorne: Well, he's broadcasting his new vision for the company to anyone who will listen. He made overtures to Samantha and her daughter about coming to work for us.

Eric: You don't think that's a good idea?

Thorne: That's not the point. The point is, you're the CEO. I'm the president. He needs to run it by us.

Eric: Uh, he did.

Thorne: What?

Eric: He and I discussed it.

Thorne: Well, he never mentioned it to me.

Eric: I'm sure he would've gotten around to it.

Thorne: When? When Samantha was on the payroll?

Eric: Thorne, I'll talk to him.

Thorne: Well, somebody better. 'Cause I'm not just going to rubber stamp anything that Ridge wants to do.


Stephanie: You may believe what you're saying, but how do you know it's true? How do either one of you know that this is the truth?

Ridge: Because Dr. Mclean's test confirmed it, mother.

Nick: And my mother's.

Stephanie: Your mother had a test run?

Brooke: There was a problem with the first paternity test. Dr. Paxson told Jackie, and she meant to tell all of us, but then she was killed in the accident.

Ridge: So, Jackie has been keeping that information to herself -- until tonight.

Stephanie: You're telling me that your mother --

Nick: I'm telling you there's no doubt, Stephanie! None. It's their child. Your grandchild. It was meant to be.

Brooke: Nick?

Eric: Thorne, nobody is asking you to rubber stamp ridge's ideas.

Thorne: No one's discussing them with me.

Eric: You've been busy planning a wedding. He probably didn't want to bother you with it.

Thorne: Well, I'd like to believe that's all it is. But that's not how it feels. It's the same old ridge. Comes in, takes over. You know, I think you'd be more concerned, dad. We've worked damn hard, spent a lot of late hours at that company --

Eric: Now, let's not overreact here, Thorne, all right?

Thorne: He's talking about taking the company to "a whole new level." As if we haven't discussed that.

Eric: Look, Thorne, he's very, very enthusiastic right now. He's feeling creative. You know Ridge.

Thorne: Yes, I do, dad. And that's what concerns me. Listen, it's not any particular idea of his, it's his attitude. It's like he's driving this train, and that he expects everyone else just to get on board.

Eric: All right, Thorne. You're absolutely right, we do need to discuss this. We need to clear the air. But during business hours, all right? Not when you're supposed to be on your honeymoon.

Thorne: Or when you're so concerned with Ridge and Brooke.

Eric: Yes. I admit, it's very hard for me to concentrate right now. Especially with your mother over there with ridge and Brooke. Now that they've reconciled.

Thorne: What? They have?

Eric: Yes, they have. It's official. Your mother is not taking it very well, I can tell you that.

Thorne: I can imagine.

Eric: She is convinced that Ridge raising Nick's child with Brooke is never going to work.

Thorne: And you disagree?

Eric: Yes, I disagree. And I told her that, too.

Thorne: I'm sure.

Eric: Not that it did any good. It's going to take a miracle to convince Stephanie.

[ Nick sighs ]


Ridge: I can't stop looking at him.

Brooke: I know, me either. So precious. Such a miracle.

Ridge: Even more than we knew.

Brooke: Ridge?

Ridge: Yeah?

Brooke: No, not you. I was talking to him.

Ridge: Oh?

Brooke: Yeah, Ridge Forrester, jr.

Ridge: Hey there, big boy.

Brooke: Oh, look! Is that a little smile? It is! It is!

Ridge: It is. Mother? Come here and look at this. Hey. Mother?

Brooke: Stephanie -- this isn't just a miracle for Ridge and I. This could be our miracle, too. A way to put our past behind us, and just be a family. I know it would mean the world to Ridge -- Ridge Sr. And Ridge Jr.

Ridge: She's right about that.

Brooke: It would mean a lot to me, too.

Stephanie: I know what it means to you.

Brooke: I don't want to rub your nose in this, Stephanie. And I don't need you to welcome me as a daughter, or as a friend. I'm past that. I don't need your approval. I just want my son -- our son -- to have a grandmother who loves him, and supports him, and gives him all of this attention. I want that for him. So, I'm inviting you to share in our joy. And let all the anger and the hostility end -- with the birth of your grandson. Look, honey. There's your grandmother. She's going to be a very big part of your life. At least I hope so.

Ridge: So, what do you say, mother?

Stephanie: You are a family now, because of the baby. I can't fight that. I won't.

Ridge: Mother -- that's not good enough.


Jackie: Nicky? Darling.

Nick: Go away, mother.

Jackie: I can't. Not until I know that you're all right.

Nick: I'm dandy. Now, leave. I mean it, I'm not doing this now!

Jackie: The baby -- you saw him, didn't you?

Nick: Yeah. Cute kid. Gonna be a real lady killer. Like father, like son, huh?

Jackie: What about Brooke and Ridge? Did you tell them?

Nick: Yeah, I told them.

Jackie: Well, it must have been quite a shock.

Nick: Well, if you're worried they're gonna come gunnin' for you --

Jackie: No, Nicky, please -- no, that's that last thing for my -- but if they did, they'd have every right. I'm sorry. I'm so -- terribly sorry. You know, I -- we'll get through it, okay? We will. We'll get through it, Nicky. We -- we'll do that, we'll be together.

Nick: I lost my family tonight.

Jackie: I know you did. I know that you feel that you're never going to get over it. But, darling, you will love again. And you will --

Nick: You don't get it, do you? This isn't about Brooke and the baby! You're my family. All my life -- you're the only one I could count on, the only one I trusted to be there for me, no matter what. And it's gone. It's dead.

Nick: Dead! You might as well be dead.


Stephanie: What do you want from me?

Ridge: Mother, I want you to tell us that your happy for us. For Brooke, and me, and this new little boy. I want you to tell us that you're happy that we're finally, finally a family. A family that you know I've wanted for so long. I want with Brooke what you had with dad -- to be able to raise our children together --

Stephanie: In spite of everything that it's cost you? In spite of what it's probably going to still cost you?

Ridge: And what about you, mother? What is it going to cost you? To continue holding on to all of this animosity, huh? No, I refuse to believe it has to be this way. I refuse. This isn't about me and Brooke anymore. It isn't about what's happened in the past. It's about this moment right here, right now. And it's about this little boy. Ridge Forrester, Jr. My namesake. Your grandson. That's what it's about. Oh, my god. You haven't even held him yet. You haven't held him.

[ Baby fusses ] Ridge: He's something else, isn't he?

Stephanie: Just like the first time I held you. And I looked in that tiny, perfect face. And I promised that I would love you and protect you -- forever. That sweet little baby. Mama's little baby boy. Aren't you? Yes, you are. Yes, you are.
