Rick: Help me. I can't-- I can't breathe.

Hector: I want the truth, Rick! What did you do to my daughter?

                        **********************************************************************************

Doctor: Felicia, Nick, why don't both of you have a seat? You look like you're prepared to hear the worst.

Felicia: Well, that's what you're supposed to do, right? I mean, prepare for the worst, hope for the best. That's the part I'm not good at.

Nick: I'm sure this whole process is difficult for everyone involved, right?

Felicia: Well, I wouldn't have to be going through it if we had caught it sooner.

Nick: I had a question about that. Why didn't they?

Doctor: In most cases of colon cancer, 90% are diagnosed in people over 50. So, the official recommendation is that we start to screen for it at 50.

Felicia: Yeah, but the other 10%, what, in America alone, that's, what, like 15,000 people? We're talking 15,000 people in their 20s, 30s and 40s whose cancer isn't getting caught until the late stages, because they're not getting colonoscopies. I mean, people don't think of colon cancer when someone like me walks in the door and says that I'm tired all the time. You know, my first doctor told me that I was partying too much. Which I was.

Doctor: That's unfortunate, 'cause when we catch it early, colorectal cancer has an excellent cure rate. It's over 90%.

Nick: What about stage 3, where she is?

Felicia: Is that where I'm still at? Or has it spread?

                        ***************************************************************************************

Caitlin: This is a mistake. Rick should not be talking to Dad right now.

Samantha: It's too late now. He's probably already at the house.

Caitlin: Then why isn't anybody answering the phone?

Samantha: Did Rick say he was going to meet him outside?

[ Caitlin sighs ]

Caitlin: Well, they can't still be out there.

Samantha: Your father wouldn't hurt Rick, would he?

Caitlin: No.

Samantha: You told him that you and Rick were in bed together. For a father to hear something like that --

Caitlin: He'll cool off. He just needs to give Rick a chance to explain.

                        ******************************************************************************************

Rick: Hector -- Hector, please.

Hector: She told me. You took her to bed, my little girl. Did you or did you not have sex with my daughter?

Rick: No.

Hector: And you never will.

[ Thunder ]

[ Sirens ]

Hector: Is he stable?

Medic: For the moment. Better alert the ER. University, we have a male mid-20s. Pedestrian against vehicle. Multiple contusions and rib fractures, possible internal injuries. E.T.A. About ten minutes. Ramirez plays the hero again.

Hector: I just gave him oxygen.

Medic: Don't let him fool you, buddy. This guy just saved your life.

Hector: Let's get him in the truck.

Medic: Get him in. Good. Up.

[ Thunder ]

                        *********************************************************************************

[ Phone rings ]

Caitlin: Rick?

Hector: Caitlin, it's me.

Caitlin: Dad? Are you with Rick?

Hector: Honey, listen. There's been an accident. Rick -- was hit by a car.

Caitlin: Oh, my god. Is he okay?

Hector: I don't know. I'll know more when I get to the emergency room. It's university hospital. I'm headed there right now.

Caitlin: I'm coming, too. Tell Rick I'm on my way. We'll be there soon.

                        **********************************************************************************

Ridge: Drugs?

Eric: That's what your mother says.

Ridge: Nick found pills in her purse?

Eric: Yes, and he tried to talk to her about it, but she wouldn't discuss it.

Ridge: Well, maybe there is nothing to discuss.

Eric: Ridge, we don't know anything about Felicia's life. We don't know her friends. Half the time we didn't even know where she was.

Ridge: Well, the good thing now is at least she's home.

Eric: Yes, and I want her to stay. It's where she belongs -- with her family, so that if she needs help, we can give it to her.

                        ******************************************************************************

Doctor: From what we can see, the cancer has not metastasized. In fact, the C.A.T. Scan shows no evidence of cancer in your body.

Felicia: What?

Doctor: Bloodwork looks excellent, your CEA levels are back to normal.

Felicia: So you're saying that --

Doctor: The surgery and the chemotherapy did their job. This is what's known as "a complete response."

Nick: Complete response? So, she cured?

Doctor: We don't use the term "cured" until our patient's been cancer-free for five years, but this is the best news I could be giving you. There's every reason to hope. You're not dying, Felicia.

Nick: I told you I was good luck.

                        ***************************************************************************************

[ Phone rings ]

Eric: Yes, hello? Samantha, hi. What's up? What? When? How badly? Oh, god. Are you sure it's University? All right. No, no, Brooke took R.J. To visit her brother and sister. I'll call her on the way. All right, yes, yes. We're leaving now. Is Catherine's here to watch the kids?

Ridge: Yeah, why? What's going on?

Eric: Rick's been in an accident.

                        *********************************************************************************

Mark: What have we got?

Medic 1: Male, mid-20s, hit by a car, multiple lacerations and contusions. He's got some fractured ribs and possible punctured lung. Uh, he's had a kidney transplant. And he's on cyclosporine and prednisone. Bp was 130 over 80. Heartrate was 115. And pulse ox was 90 and dropping.

Mark: We've got decreased breath sounds on the left.

Medic 1: Uh, oxygen was administered on the scene by, uh, fireman Ramirez.

Mark: How much is he getting?

Medic 2: Four liters per minute.

Mark: What's his name?

Hector: His name's Rick Forrester.

Mark: Rick, listen, it's Mark, all right? We're gonna do everything we can to take care of you. Let's get him a chest x-ray, a c-spine, a chem panel and a blood gas. Go.

Hector: You know him?

Mark: His family. Listen, I heard what happened. He's really lucky you were there.

Policeman 1: You the, uh, guy who called the paramedics?

Hector: Yeah.

Policeman 2: Medic said you probably saved his life. Did you, um, see it happen?

Hector: Yeah.

Policeman 1: You didn't, uh, happen to get the plate number, did you? It'd help us find him.

Hector: You found him. It was me.

                        **********************************************************************************

Felicia: Oh, my god. I'm not dying.

Nick: Unless you die of shock.

[ Felicia sighs ]

Felicia: You have to understand that -- that ever since I was diagnosed, it has been nothing but bad news.

Doctor: Maybe your luck is changing. Now, we're not done with you yet. We're going to have to be very vigilant the next few years.

Felicia: 'Cause it could come back.

Doctor: It's possible. There might be rogue cancer cells in your body that are too small for us to detect.

Nick: It's also possible it may not come back, right? You beat the odds gettin' this thing, you can beat the odds by fightin' it.

Felicia: Yeah. Yeah, maybe I can.

Doctor: Have you told your family about your cancer?

Felicia: No.

Nick: You think she probably should, huh, doc?

Felicia: No, I -- I -- you know, now that I'm out of immediate danger, I --

Doctor: Let me just caution you that living with the threat of cancer can be pretty stressful, too. Having to get checked every few months. A patient of mine likened it to holding his breath for five years.

Felicia: You know, right now I feel like I can do anything. Thank you, thank you so much.

                        ***********************************************************************************

Hector: It was dark. It was raining real hard. You know? I -- I didn't see him. And when I did, I slammed on the brakes, but it was too late.

Policeman 2: How fast do you think you were going?

Hector: I'm not sure. I was in a hurry.

Samantha: Excuse me, a patient just came in. Um, Rick Forrester --

Caitlin: Mom, there's dad. Dad!

Hector: Hi, sweetheart. Could we pick this up later? I'm not going anywhere.

Policeman 1: That's fine.

Hector: Thank you.

Samantha: Where's Rick?

Hector: He's in with the doctor.

Eric: Caitlin, Samantha.

Caitlin: Mr. Forrester.

Samantha: Eric, were you able to get a hold of Brooke?

Eric: Yes. I told her I'd call her as soon as I know something.

Caitlin: Well, Rick's in with the doctor right now.

Eric: How is he?

Hector: I don't know. I think he may have broken some ribs.

Caitlin: Dad just finished talking to the police about the accident.

Ridge: Then you saw it?

Eric: How did this happen?

Mark: Mr.Forrester?

Eric: Mark. Are you working on Rick?

Mark: Yes, sir. Um, we are still waiting on the test results, but Rick has two broken ribs and a collapsed left lung.

Caitlin: Oh, my god. He can't breathe.

Mark: We're giving him oxygen. But if his blood oxygen level doesn't improve, then we may have to insert a chest tube. But I'd like to wait on that. A lung has a way of reinflating itself sometimes.

Hector: So, he's conscious?

Mark: Yeah, and I see no evidence of head or spinal injury.

Caitlin: Well, can we see him?

Mark: Yes. But until we get the test results back, I'm afraid I can only limit him to one visitor at a time. And we do not want him talking.

Eric: Caitlin, why don't-- why don't you go in first?

Caitlin: Are you sure?

Eric: I have to call his mother. Just tell him I'm here, tell him I'm right outside.

Mark: I'll take her.

                        *************************************************************************************

Nick: Sure you don't want to go out and celebrate? Huh?

Felicia: No, I -- I am going to sleep through the night. I mean, that is all the celebration that I need. I'm not waking up at 2:00 in the morning, staring at the ceiling, thinking about how this cancer is eating me alive.

Nick: That's how it's been, huh?

[ Felicia sighs ]

Felicia: You have no idea.

Nick: I'd like to know. Tell me about it.

[ Felicia sighs ]

Felicia: It's over, now.

Nick: It's over. So, what's next?

Felicia: I don't know. I don't -- I don't -- I don't know what to do with myself.

Nick: Here's an idea -- stay the course for a while.

Felicia: Mm, do the things I was going to do when I thought I was dying?

Nick: I told you that's the best way for everybody to live, right? Besides, you were on the way to making peace with your family.

Felicia: Oh, how about having a fling with a handsome sailor?

Nick: I didn't know that was the plan.

Felicia: Why, I didn't mean to involve you in my drama.

Nick: I like drama.

Felicia: Liar.

Nick: I like you.

Felicia: Yeah, well, um, you know, you were gonna be wishing me, uh, a bon voyage. You know, you were gonna be waving good-bye from the pier. And, um, all that's -- that's changed now. You know, I mean, uh, this ship is docked for repairs.

Nick: I love all the nautical references. But what are you really saying? Bon voyage and docking at the pier and repairs? Are you telling me that -- when you were dying it was okay to be close, but now that you're okay, you're pushing me away? Is that what you're saying?

Felicia: Well, maybe that should tell you something.

Nick: Come on. Have a fling with a sailor.

Felicia: You're not just a fling, Nick.

Nick: Good.

Felicia: I can't promise you anything, you know? This is really risky.

Nick: I'm a gambler. I like my odds.

                        **************************************************************************************

Eric: Yes, she's upset.

Mark: I'm gonna go check on Rick's x-rays.

Ridge: All right, Mark, thank you.

Eric: I don't understand this. How could Rick be hit in his own driveway? Officer, officer, my name is Eric Forrester. I'm the father of the young man who was in the accident.

Ridge: Hector Ramirez gave you a statement. Is that right?

Policeman 1: Yes, he did.

Eric: Well, can you tell us what happened? Who hit my son?

                        ******************************************************************************************

Caitlin: Hey. You're awake.

[ Rick grunts ] No, shh. Shh. The doctor doesn't want you to talk. You have a collapsed lung. There's some broken ribs, too. But you're gonna be all right. Don't worry. Your dad's out there. And Ridge. And I'm going to be right here with you, as long as you need me. I'm so sorry, Rick. This is horrible. I don't even know yet if they caught whoever did it. Thank god Dad got there when he did. The doctor said he saved your life. I know you probably don't remember. It's okay. I was so angry at him. And now I'm so grateful. Driving over here in the car with my mom, not knowing what was going to happen, the thought of losing you, I just couldn't stand it. I won't let it happen. I don't care what my dad says, okay? I love you. And I know that you love me, too.

Rick: Your dad, he -- your dad --

Caitlin: No, no, no, no, shh. Don't worry about him. There is nothing he can do to keep us apart.

Caitlin: I'm not going to leave you, Rick. Not now, not ever.

                        ********************************************************************************8

Eric: I just talked to the police. Did you do this? Did you do this to my son?
