Ridge: I know what you did to my son.

Amber: Ridge, I -- I didn't --

Ridge: You gonna deny it?

Amber: Leave me alone, okay?

Ridge: That's what I want you to do, Amber. Leave us alone. He's just a boy, for god's sakes.

Amber: 18, he is 18.

Ridge: He thinks he's in love with you. He thinks this is real. But he doesn't know what you are, does he?

Amber: I'm his friend.

Ridge: You're a child molester!

Amber: That is not true.

Ridge: It is true, and you've taken advantage of him. He doesn't know that, but I do. I'm not going to stand for it.

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

Jackie: There, darling. It's all done. Don't you look handsome. Ready for a night on the town.

Audrey: He knows you're here and that you're taking very good care of him.

Jackie: Thank you, Audrey. I hope you're right.

Audrey: You need to take care of yourself, too. Otherwise, you'll get very worn out, and that doesn't do either one of you any good.

Jackie: Believe me, I'm fine.

Audrey: Okay, is there anything else I can do before I leave?

Jackie: No, no, we're good. The night nurse will be here soon. Thanks. Do you think she's right, darling?

[ Jackie sighs ] I hope she's right. I hope you know that I'm here and how truly, truly sorry I am.

[ Doorbell rings ]

Priest: Jacqueline.

Jackie: Oh, father, please, come in.

Priest: How are you doing?

Jackie: I'm holding up.

Priest: And Massimo?

Jackie: There hasn't been any change.

Priest: I'm sure he's more comfortable here at home than he was in the hospital. I can only imagine how difficult this must be for you.

Jackie: I don't think you can.

Priest: No one would blame you if you had questions.

Jackie: Questions?

Priest: About how god could allow something like this to happen to a man who was loved and depended on by so many.

Jackie: Oh, no. I know why this happened, father. It's why I asked you to come here tonight. I need you to hear my confession.

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

Thorne: Thomas, you have to understand where your father's coming from. You know Amber's history.

Thomas: That shouldn't make any difference.

Thorne: Has that been your argument?

Thomas: You don't understand, he's way off base here. You should hear the things he says, the names he calls her. She doesn't deserve to be treated like that.

Thorne: Yeah, you're right. Nobody does.

Thomas: See? You know, you know how it is when he makes up his mind about somebody.

Thorne: Yeah, he can be brutal.

Thomas: And it's impossible to get through to him. You know he slapped Amber with a restraining order?

Thorne: Yeah, I know. She told me.

Thomas: That's not right. He's acting like she's a criminal. In his mind, she's just a low-class gold digger and he gets to do whatever he wants to her.

Thorne: He's just trying to protect you.

Thomas: From being happy? We're good for each other, Thorne. He just doesn't want to see it. If you're not going to help me, I'll find somebody who will.

Thorne: Calm down. Calm down.

Thomas: I can't leave her up there alone with him.

Thorne: Thomas, if you go up there, you're only going to make things worse. Do you understand that? I'll tell you what. I'll go.

Thomas: Really?

Thorne: Yeah, just give me her address.

Thomas: Great. This is so cool of you. I didn't want to get you involved except that --

Thorne: I know, I know. Don't worry. I know how to handle your father, okay?

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

Amber: I didn't molest Thomas. He's not a child.

Ridge: He's too young to know what you're up to.

Amber: It's not like I'm trying to pull something over on him.

Ridge: Yes, you are. You're doing the same thing you pulled on Rick.

Amber: I – I know how this must look to you. But you have to understand --

Ridge: You're a leech, Amber. You drained him of the best years of his life. Well, not Thomas. I'm not going to let you do it.

Amber: Ridge, this is crazy --

Ridge: Yes, you are, if you think you can do this twice.

Amber: Um, I – I want you to leave right now.

Ridge: No, Amber. 'Cause I'm not through with you.

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

Priest: Jacqueline, I'll hear your confession, of course, but in times of crisis, I think it's more helpful to ask the church for guidance, not absolution.

Jackie: I did this. I did this to him.

Priest: Jacqueline, he had a stroke.

Jackie: Yes, he did. But it was because of me. My weakness, you see. I cheated on him, father. I was with someone else. Um, it was difficult time in my life. I was unhappy and I was lonely, and I was drinking a lot. And I know that there's absolutely no excuse, because I broke my marriage vows and I broke my husband's heart.

Priest: Massimo knew?

Jackie: Yes, we were arguing about it when he collapsed.

Priest: You didn't mean for this to happen.

Jackie: Oh, no. Oh, no, I didn't want to hurt him. After everything he's done for me. He loved me so much. And I betrayed him.

Priest: You're here for him now.

Jackie: I always will be.

Priest: And your relationship with the other man? Are you still in contact with him?

Jackie: I'm not going to make the same mistake again.

Priest: Well, I'm sure that's your intention, but temptation can be very difficult to fight, and in a situation like this --

Jackie: Father, I almost killed my husband!

Priest: You feel guilty. You want to do penance.

Jackie: Penance -- there's nothing, nothing I can do to make up for what I've done.

Priest: God can forgive the things we can’t. There's always a chance for redemption.

Jackie: Not for me. Not while my husband is like this. Not for me.

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

Amber: Ridge, please. Okay, if you just calm down, we can talk about this.

Ridge: No more excuses.

Amber: I'm not going to give you an excuse. I just want to explain.

Ridge: I don't want to hear the disgusting details of how you seduced my son.

Amber: That's not how it was. And anyway, Brooke and your mom already came down on me for it, okay? That's why I left town.

Ridge: But not so far he couldn't follow you. He was here. Am I right? Oh, I can see your little wheels turning right now. "How much does he know? Who told him?"

Amber: Brooke told you.

Ridge: No, actually Thomas did. He was trying to prove what a man he was. Well, I know that a real man wouldn't have anything to do with trash like you, Amber. That's why you prey on little boys.

Amber: You know what? That's it! That is enough! You back off now, ridge! I mean it.

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

Jackie: I deserve to be punished, father, for what I've done. Look at him. Look at him. This powerful, giant of a man reduced to this -- helpless, paralyzed -- because of my selfishness.

Priest: Scripture tells us that we should treat all people with compassion and kindness. We can't forget to include ourselves in that group.

Jackie: I'm never, ever going to be able to forgive myself.

Priest: Jacqueline, how can you help Massimo get better if you can't heal your own heart?

Jackie: I don't know. I don't know what I'm going to do. I don't know where I'm going to find the strength. I just know that I have to. I have to, I have to, I have to, I have to.

[ Jackie sobbing ] oh, father, thank you. Thank you.

Priest: I haven't officially heard your confession.

Jackie: I know, but you've been really wonderful. I just think I needed to talk to someone.

Priest: Well, if you need anything else, you can reach me at the parish.

Jackie: I know, and I will. Deacon.

Deacon: What's wrong? Is it Massimo?

Jackie: No, no. There's not been any change. The father came by to counsel me actually and -- thank you for coming again, father.

Priest: And you are?

Deacon: Oh, I'm sorry. I'm Deacon Sharpe. I'm the vice president of Jackie's company and a close family friend. Her son asked me to come by and keep an eye on things.

Priest: Nice to meet you.

Deacon: You, too. It was a pleasure.

Jackie: Thank you for coming again, father. Thank you.

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

Amber: I have had it! You hear me? You come into my house, corner me, call me names -- you know, it's not my fault that your kid thinks you're full of it!

Ridge: You're messing with his head, Amber!

Amber: And you are messing with mine! You're calling me a child molester? Thomas is 18-years-old. He can do whatever the hell he wants. And there's not a damn thing you can do about it. Hmm, yeah, I'm sure that ticks you off. But coming after me is not gonna fix your problem.

Ridge: You are the problem.

Amber: No, you are. You and this king of the world attitude of yours.

Ridge: Who the hell do you think you are?!

Amber: I thought you had that all figured out. I'm just some scheming little gold-digger from the desert out to snag your son. Yeah, you and the family council already decided. You see what you want to see. And you ignore anything that contradicts that little theory of yours. You know, if I'm so much of a gold-digger, then why didn't I take Rick's divorce settlement? Why didn't I take a dime from Forrester when I left?

Ridge: Because what you were really after, amber, was a way back in. And now you think you've found it.

Amber: If that's all you think your son has to offer, then you don't know your son any more than you know me. Maybe that's your real problem.

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

Jackie: Leave him alone.

Deacon: It's almost funny, he looks peaceful when he's sleeping.

Jackie: I said leave him alone, Deacon. You shouldn't be here.

Deacon: You know what, Jackie? That's the guilt talking, all right? Is that why you invited the priest over, to exorcise your demons?

Jackie: I'm the demon. I'm the one that did this.

Deacon: Oh, stop. Is that what the priest told you?

Jackie: I don't need anyone to tell me what I've done or how unforgivable it is.

Deacon: Oh, Jackie, we didn't mean this to happen to him. Come on. It's not your fault that he's in that chair. You were trying to tell him the truth. That's exactly what he wanted. Listen, you can spend the rest of your life trying to atone for some crime that you think you committed, or you can live your life. And it's a good life. You got people that you care about -- you got people that give a damn about you.

Jackie: I hope you're not talking about yourself.

Deacon: You're damn right I am. 'Cause I'm still in love with you. Of course I am.

Jackie: You stop that! Stop it! Don't talk about it. Not here, not in front of him.

Deacon: If you want to go somewhere else --

Jackie: I do not want to go somewhere else, all right? I want you to go somewhere else, because you can't be here, deacon. You can't, not with my husband and me.

Deacon: Jackie, you need me. Whether you realize it or not, you do.

Jackie: No, I don't. No, I don't! I don't need you. I don't want you! I want you to go! I want you to leave! Leave, deacon!

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

Thomas: Amber needs me. I got her into this mess with dad, I have to get her out of it. I'm coming, Amber.

Ridge: So you know my son better than I do?

Amber: I know he's mature enough to make his own decisions. And I also know that he's the sweetest kindest, most generous person I have ever met in my life.

Ridge: Oh, and you like that -- you like that in a man, don't you, Amber -- generosity?

Amber: You want me to sign a paper? Go ahead, call your lawyer. I am not interested in your money. I am in love with your son.

Ridge: Oh, please! Just save your breath, will ya?

Amber: You don't believe me?

Ridge: No, Amber, I don't believe you.

Amber: How could I not love him? Huh? How could I not? With his decency, his integrity, his amazing sense of humor. The way -- the way that he can always bring out the best in people. I mean, don't you see that in him? Don't you see Taylor in him?

Ridge: What did you just say?

Amber: I said that he is just like Taylor. Who was kinder to me than almost anyone I've ever met in my entire life. She believed in me, like Thomas does. She stood up for me, just like Thomas does.

Ridge: You're gonna use the memory of my dead wife to justify this?

Amber: No, I'm just saying --

Ridge: You think this is what Taylor would have wanted, for you to have your way with her little boy in the back of some cafe, in some cheap motel?

Amber: No, Ridge, come on --

Ridge: Well, I seriously doubt it, Amber! But we'll never really know that, will we? Because she's not here, is she? She can't speak for herself. Why is that, Amber? Why is she dead? Tell me. Why is Taylor dead? Because she believed in you. She stood up for you. She saved your life -- your miserable, pathetic, little life. She save you from Sheila, Amber! And then Sheila killed her!

Amber: No -- ow!

Ridge: Taylor would still be here if it wasn't for you, Amber. Yes, she would. Don't you tell me what she would want. She'd want to be here. She'd want to be alive. She'd want to be alive, she'd want to be a mother to her children! That's what she'd want, amber, so don't you dare tell me that!

Thorne: Ridge, let her go!

Amber: Ridge, come on --

Thorne: Let her go!

Ridge: What are you doing here?

Thorne: What the hell is the matter with you?

Amber: He was gonna kill me!

Ridge: What are you doing here, Thorne?! What are you doing here?!

Thorne: Thomas asked me to come up here, because he was afraid you were going to lose it. And obviously he was right!

Ridge: This is none of your concern!

Thorne: You're lucky I showed up!

Ridge: You better stay out of my way, Thorne. Just stay out of my way.

Thorne: You're threatening me now? Because that's the way you handle all your problems, isn't it, Ridge? You bully people, you intimidate 'em! Well, not anymore! Not amber and not me! Now, you're gonna sit down, you're gonna shut up, and you're gonna figure out a way to handle this, Ridge! Because I'm warning you now! The days of you pushing people around, they're over!
