Amber: Brooke warned you never to let this happen again or your marriage would be over. But you just couldn't resist, could you?

Ridge: Where did you get this picture?

Amber: Shouldn't you be more worried about what'll happen when Brooke sees it?

Ridge: Brooke is not going to see this.

Amber: Oh, really? Hmm, I don't know about that.


Bridget: So -- how did you do it? How did you wreck years of sobriety for Deacon?

Massimo: That is not important.

Bridget: Oh, I think deacon would disagree with you there.

Massimo: I don't give a damn what he agrees or disagrees with, Bridget. But, I'll tell you one thing -- it was not difficult to put Mr. Sharpe back on his road to ruin. A few doses of grain alcohol and he was on his way. It was almost as if -- as if he welcomed the opportunity to do what he does best. Self-destruct.

Nick: Hey, hey, pop --

Bridget: I cannot believe that you could be this cruel. I know what he did to you.

Massimo: You know nothing. He taunted a man in a wheelchair. Preyed on a vulnerable, grieving woman. Seduced her in front of my eyes while I was gasping for breath through a breathing tube!

Nick: Come on, easy. Take it easy. Come on, settle down.

Massimo: I'm fine. I'm fine, Dominick. Deacon may be suffering, and I certainly hope he is, but it is nothing compared to what he's done to Jacqueline and me.

[ Massimo sighs ] Bridget, I am not the cruel one in this scenario. Okay? And as a matter of fact, I have never shown so much mercy in my life.


Amber: Here she comes.

Clarke: Oh, Brooke! What a nice surprise.

Brooke: Clarke! I didn't know that you were here.

Clarke: Yes. Well, sally gave me that expense account and I'm working it.

Brooke: I thought an expense account was for business.

Clarke: Well, yes, of course. And you're a business associate. Why don't you join me here?

Brooke: Thank you, Clarke. But I'm not here alone. I'm here on a date with my husband. And we have a lot to celebrate. So, enjoy your expense account. Amber. You're here, too? Well, what's next? Is Sally gonna pop out of the dessert cart?

[ Amber chuckles ]

Amber: I don't think so. But something else sure might.


[ Deacon remembering ]

[ Jackie laughing ]

Jackie: Oh! Deacon.

Deacon: I've got to get out of this place.


Brooke: Amber, I know what you're trying to do.

Amber: Oh, I doubt it.

Brooke: It's really quite obvious. I see the photo album that you tried to give us earlier.

Amber: You know, it's not the same. I've made a few changes.

Ridge: Brooke is not interested in your photo album, Amber.

Brooke: Look, we know that you miss Thomas. But showing up all the time and accosting ridge at dinner like this, it's really not going to help your case.

Amber: Oh, I don't know. Ridge and I have been having such a nice chat. In fact, I'm -- I'm sensing an attitude adjustment.

Brooke: Look, Amber, if you don't mind, we'd really like to get back to our evening, so --

Amber: Oh, of course. Of course. I don't want to spoil it. I mean, the last thing I want to do is cause problems for your family. I really want us all to get along.

Ridge: This is not the time or place to get into this discussion. Let's go, come on.

Amber: Oh, no, no, no, no. Don't -- don't -- don't let me ruin it for you. I mean, your food's already here.

Brooke: Amber, if you're not going to leave, we're going to go.

Amber: Oh, I'll go. I'll go. I just want to see the look on your face when you open it. It's really delicious. I've been savoring mine.

Ridge: Come on, Brooke, let's go.

Amber: Here, I'll show you. See? Doesn't that look yummy? I'll go now, just like I promised. I mean, you can always count on me to keep my word. You two kids have a great night, now. And remember -- it's all up to you.

Brooke: Wow. She is strange.

Ridge: Sick.

Brooke: Well, we're not going to let her ruin our evening, are we?

Ridge: No. No.

Brooke: Good.


Jackie: Nicky? Oh. Massimo, I -- I didn't expect you to --

Massimo: Obviously.

Jackie: I was looking for Nicky.

Massimo: Dominick had to step out for a while.

Jackie: Oh.

Massimo: But I'm here. Anything I can do for you?


[ Cell phone ringing ]

Deacon: Yeah?

Bridget: Hey, deacon, it's Bridget.

Deacon: Bridget. What's up?

Bridget: I really, really need to talk to you.

Deacon: Yeah, well this isn't exactly the best time.

Bridget: Can you just tell me where you are?

Deacon: I'm at my place at the beach.

Bridget: Okay. Just stay there. I'll be right over. It's really important.

Deacon: If it's really important, I think maybe you got the wrong guy. I mean, haven't you heard? I'm just a disaster waiting to happen. And you know what? The wait's over. Good-bye.

Bridget: No, no, no -- wait, listen, I just want to tell you what Massimo's been --

[ Cell phone rings ] Oh, Deacon. Damn it, pick up. Pick up the phone.


[ Ridge thinking ]

Ridge: Bridget and I were down there fighting for our lives. That last hour before Nick found us. I thought I was going to lose her. She didn't feel cold anymore. She wanted to sleep. She was never gonna wake up. That's where I thought, "did I actually kiss her?" How the hell did amber get that photo?

[ Horn blaring ]

Brooke: Are you all right?

Ridge: I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry. Yeah, yeah. I'm okay.

Brooke: Honey, you hardly ate anything at dinner.

Ridge: Well, Amber killed my appetite.

Brooke: Remember, we weren't going to let Amber destroy our evening.

Ridge: Yeah. You're right. Sweetheart, I'm going to drop you off and go get us some dessert.

Brooke: You don't have to do that.

Ridge: Yeah, I do.


Amber: Clarke?

Clarke: What? It's your fault. The doctor said I should not combine the foods in an improper way, like combining food with stress! And the stress of waiting for you to show that picture to Brooke, I didn't need.

Amber: I never intended to show the picture to Brooke. And I want to. Someday she's going to be my stepmother-in-law.

Clarke: Yeah. That is if Thomas takes you back.

Amber: Oh, he will. Everything's going to work out for me.

[ Cell phone rings ] Starting now. Hello, Ridge.

Ridge: Where are you?

Amber: At Spectra.

Ridge: Don't leave.

Amber: He's on his way here. You might want to take off.

Clarke: Are you sure you don't need a little backup?

Amber: No, no. I can handle this.

Clarke: I hope to god you're right.


[ Knock on door ]

Bridget: Deacon? Deacon? Deacon, are you home?

Deacon: Dear Jackie, please accept my resignation from Jackie M, effective immediately. Thank you for the opportunity you gave me, but clearly, it was undeserved. Regretfully, Deacon.

Nick: Bridget?

Bridget: He's gone.

Nick: What?

Bridget: He quit his job. He sounded terrible on the phone.

Nick: Did you actually talk to him?

Bridget: Yeah, I tried, but he hung up on me. I've got to get a hold of him.

[ Cell phone rings ]

Deacon: This is Deacon Sharpe. I'm going away for a while. Don't leave a message. I won't get it.


Jackie: You were right about him.

Massimo: Well -- that doesn't mean that I take any pleasure in your pain. Thank you.

Bridget: Deacon's gone. And god knows where, all because your father is so selfish and thinks he can just --

Nick: Wait a minute. Hold it, hold it. Look at this. These yellow pages are open to rehab clinics. He's circled them. That's where he is. Deacon checked into rehab.

Bridget: Well, he wouldn't have had to if Massimo hadn't been slipping him alcohol. Deacon should know this is not his fault.

Nick: Rehab is where deacon needs to be right now.

Bridget: What about your mother? Don't you think she deserves to know the truth?

Nick: Probably. But I'm willing to overlook that if I can put this family back together.

Bridget: It's just that simple to you?

Nick: They love each other, Bridget. They shouldn't have split up in the first place. It was wrong. And I know two wrongs don't make a right, but in this case, maybe it does. In this case, maybe the best thing happened for everybody. Bridget, my parents are complex, flawed people. They're nuts, like most of the people in your family. But they deserve to be happy. They deserve another chance.

Bridget: And Deacon got what he deserves? Is that what you think?

Nick: I think -- deacon's going to be just fine. He's beat this before, he can do it again. He's just not going to do it with my mother in his life. And he's not going to tear this family apart. Because you know how that feels, don't you?

Bridget: Yeah.

Nick: I need you to trust me on this.

Bridget: I do.

Nick: So let's leave it alone. Let's let things resolve themselves. It's what's best for everybody. Especially Deacon.

Bridget: Okay.

Nick: Thanks. It means a lot to me.


[ Door slams ]

Ridge: It was all a set-up?! You planted a camera in that mineshaft, then you trapped us down there and sat back and waited for us to freeze to death. What the hell is wrong with you, Amber?!

Amber: Okay, Ridge, we're in an office. Let's not get out of control, okay?

Ridge: Oh, like that's going to keep me from wanting to choke the hell out of you?

Amber: Ridge, I never would have let anything happen to the two of you, okay?

Ridge: Bridget almost died!

Amber: I know that now. I know. I realize that, and I -- I made a mistake.

Ridge: A mistake? That's attempted murder. You're a sick, little puppy, you know that, Amber?

Amber: Oh, I am?! I am? I'm not the one kissing my stepdaughter.

Ridge: Well, that meant nothing and you know it!

Amber: Really? I don't think Brooke would agree with you. She said if you ever touched her daughter again then your marriage was over.

Ridge: You are that desperate to break us up?

Amber: No, no, I'm not. Okay, I realize how much you guys love each other, and I realize the kind of relationship you guys have. And that, someday, I hope to have a marriage like that.

Ridge: Yeah, good luck.

Amber: Please, listen to me. I don't want to show that picture to Brooke, okay? And I won't. Not ever. Just as long as you let me see Thomas again.

Ridge: You did this to get -- to get Thomas back?

Amber: That's how much I love him.

Ridge: Oh, yeah, right. Enough to almost kill his father and stepsister?

Amber: You drove me to this, Ridge! You did! You have been on a rampage for months. At home, at work, throwing your weight around, making all these rash decisions, not even once, not once, thinking about the people that you are hurting that care about you. In fact, this picture right here proves that I was right about the first picture I took.

Ridge: No, Amber, the only thing that proves is you're a conniving sadist!

Amber: Do you deny that this is you kissing Bridget in this picture?

Ridge: That is not a kiss. None the way you'd like to see it, Amber. That's not a passionate kiss. That was a good-bye, because I thought she was dying.

Amber: So it was your last chance to show her how you really feel?

Ridge: Oh, do not twist my words around here!

Amber: You know, the bottom line is, you didn't kiss her on the forehead or on the cheek. You kissed her on the lips. I don't want to show this picture to Brooke, and I know you sure as hell don't want her to see it. Because this picture would be burned in Brooke's memory forever. And nobody wants that. So, I think it's time you and I made a little deal.

Ridge: Oh, I get it. I see what this is about now. This is about blackmail.

Amber: No. No. I'm not asking you for anything. Not money, nothing. All I want is for you to lay off Thomas and me. That's it. Just give us a chance. Thomas was the best relationship I've ever had in my life. It was perfect. And I want that back. And I know that I can be good for Thomas and for this family if you'd just give me a chance. Yeah, I've made some mistakes. Went to the extremes a little bit, and did some stupid things. Haven't we all? Including you? So, you look past my crimes and I will forget about yours. Together we can put an end to all this hurt. I don't want to be your enemy, ridge. I want to be your friend. Just give me a chance. One chance. And I promise you, you will not regret it.
