Brooke: You have something to tell me?

Ridge: Yeah, I do. I went to see Amber tonight.

Brooke: I should've known. You were so bothered by whatever it was she said at dinner when I was away from the table -- your mood changed completely after that.

Ridge: Oh, yeah.

Brooke: There's more to it than I know, isn't there? What happened, Ridge? What has Amber done now?


Bridget: I hope you don't mind me just stopping in like this.

Eric: Oh, I don't know. It's a pretty big imposition, but now that you're here, it's okay.

Bridget: It was just such a beautiful evening. I didn't want to go home yet.

Eric: You've been out?

Bridget: Yeah, I went down to the marina. I took sunset back up with the windows down. I guess I just forget this time of year, how much I love the smell of jasmine. Or what is it -- ? What is it, orange blossom?

Eric: So you were at the marina?

Bridget: Yeah, I was having dinner.

Eric: With Nick?

Bridget: Yeah. He cooked me dinner. Isn't that adorable?

Eric: I'm not certain that's exactly the word I would use to describe the good captain.

Bridget: Oh, it's the word I would use, because he is.

Eric: So you enjoyed yourself?

Bridget: Yeah, but I always do when I'm with Nick. He's just incredible, Dad. He's the most charming man I think I've ever met.


Stephanie: A woman's work is never done.

Nick: Oh. Hello, Stephanie. I've always been trying to get in touch with my feminine side, as you know.

Stephanie: Mm-hmm. Bridget gone home? Well, I heard you were having dinner. And how'd it go?

Nick: How is it nothing ever gets past you? Are you writing a column for rate-a-date?

Stephanie: Oh, so it was a date?

Nick: You know, Stephanie, I do always love your unexpected visits, but the same question always looms -- what do you want?

Stephanie: How 'bout a cold beer and conversation?

Nick: Ah.

Stephanie: And perhaps a little talk about Bridget. I mean, she's a beautiful young girl, and I can understand why you would be attracted to her. But she is Brooke's daughter.


Clarke: Well, Ridge didn't kill you. That's a good sign.

Amber: I'm not so sure.

Clarke: So, your plan didn't turn out like you'd hoped, huh?

Amber: Not exactly.

Clarke: That's a shocker. So tell me, what happened?

Amber: What always happens. You know, I should have seen it coming. Ridge, he twisted everything around again. And he took a copy of the picture. And he's going to show it to Brooke.


Ridge: You know how desperate Amber wants to be with Thomas, right?

Brooke: She's up to more tricks?

Ridge: She's gone way too far now.

Brooke: Ridge, I know how you feel about Amber. I don't want her with Thomas, either. But I really don't think she's being malicious.

Ridge: Oh, yes she is. She's doing everything she can to throw this family into chaos, Brooke. If she can't be with Thomas, she's going to do everything in her power to tear us apart.

Brooke: But she can't.

Ridge: You have no idea what Amber's capable of now.

Brooke: What is it? What did she do?

Ridge: She almost killed your daughter, Brooke. Amber's the one responsible for Bridget falling down into that mineshaft in Big Bear.


Eric: So -- so, Nick made dinner?

Bridget: Yeah. Did you know he could cook?

Eric: Uh, no.

Bridget: Neither did I.

Eric: Well, that's not surprising. You don't know him that well.

Bridget: Not yet.

Eric: You're just fascinated with him, aren't you?

[ Bridget chuckles ]

Bridget: How could I not be? I mean, the life that he's led. All the places he's been.

Eric: Bridget, you're not exactly a babe in the woods yourself, you know. You're studying medicine overseas. You've been living in Copenhagen, traveling all over Europe.

Bridget: I know, I know. It's just it's different with him. It's -- he's not like anyone I've ever met. And it's not just that he's worldly. He's funny and disarming and intelligent and incredibly talented. You know, he took me outside and pointed out all of the constellations. And before that, he sang me a song that he wrote for me.

Eric: Oh, for god's sakes.

Bridget: No, Dad. Okay, what? I know. I know what you're going to say. That he's older and he has a tattoo and he smokes cigars, and he's just not right for me. But you know what? He makes me happy. You can understand that, can't you?

Eric: Of course I can. And I want see you happy in a relationship. I really do. You deserve that. I just don't want you to rush into anything. Especially with Nick Marone.


Nick: You're concerned about Bridget?

Stephanie: You and her mother have a rather complicated history.

Nick: Well, we all know that. It's on the table. We've discussed it.

Stephanie: It's not that long ago that Brooke and you were standing right at the front of the altar.

Nick: She's married to Ridge.

Stephanie: And you are dating her daughter.

Nick: What's your point, Stephanie?

Stephanie: I don't think that Bridget deserves to be the default girl here.

Nick: Come on now. I'm a grown man. I don't ink I deserve that accusation.

Stephanie: Bridget hasn't always exercised the best judgment when it comes to the men in her life.

Nick: And you think she's doing with me?

Stephanie: I think that she deserves to be appreciated for who she is.

Nick: Well, that's fair. Bridget's young and beautiful. She's ambitious. She's intelligent. I see her for everything you see in her. Actually, maybe more.


Clarke: Ridge is gonna show Brooke this picture? That's crazy.

Amber: I tried to talk him out of it.

Clarke: He's bluffing.

Amber: I don't think so.

Clarke: Well, Brooke would never forgive him. You caught him kissing her daughter.

Amber: Yeah. He's so desperate to destroy me, he doesn't care what it's gonna do to Brooke.

Clarke: He'll be destroying his own marriage.

Amber: He's obsessed, Clarke. He wants me in jail. And he doesn't care what the price.

Clarke: What? He said that? In jail?

Amber: Yeah. First he's gonna show it to Brooke, and then -- then they're gonna take it to the police. And we will be charged with kidnapping, assault and attempted murder.

Clarke: We? You told Ridge I was involved with this?

Amber: No. I don't know. You know what? I was so upset, I don't even remember what I said.

Clarke: Oh, god.

Amber: You know, they're going to know that somebody helped me, Clarke. You know, and somebody probably saw us together. And if Brooke and Ridge take that photo to the cops, then we're dead.

Clarke: No. If Brooke sees this photo, she's not gonna be going anywhere with Ridge. And Ridge, he will have his hands full just trying to keep his family together.


Brooke: What are you talking about? Nobody pushed Bridget into that mineshaft. It was an accident.

Ridge: No, it wasn't, Brooke.

Brooke: Ridge, she fell.

Ridge: She was lured in there. Bridget mentioned a woman on the trail, the woman she followed into the woods.

Brooke: The woman that was asking for help.

Ridge: That was Amber.

Brooke: Amber? Oh, my god, Bridget could have died. And Amber knew that she was down there? Why? Why would she do something like that?

Ridge: Because that's how vindictive and obsessive she is.

Brooke: What, she was so angry that we wouldn't let her see Thomas, so she tried to hurt Bridget?

Ridge: Her plan was a hell of a lot more sick than that.

Brooke: What are you saying? What did she try to do?


Stephanie: Well, considering that you were involved with my daughter --

Nick: Hold on there, Stephanie. Now, you know, every relationship doesn't last. The point is, I don't play games.

Stephanie: No, I guess you don't. And you don't wear you heart on your sleeve, either.

Nick: You asked me how I felt about Bridget and I told you.

Stephanie: And I believe you.

Nick: I would think you'd be happy to see Bridget with anybody but Ridge.

Stephanie: I'm hoping that that's passed.

Nick: Well, it has.

Stephanie: Good. I'm glad to hear it.

Nick: I'll bet you are.

Stephanie: Who knows? Maybe you and Bridget will be good for one another.

Nick: Be honest. You have seen a change in her.

Stephanie: I've seen a change in you. My goodness. Flowers, candles, tablecloth. You went to a lot of trouble here. You might be serious.

Nick: I'm so glad I convinced you.

Stephanie: I'm not the one who needs convincing.

Nick: Well, who does, then? Bridget?

Stephanie: Brooke.

Bridget: You don't need to worry about Nick and mom.


Eric: I'm not worried about them. I'm worried about you, honey.

Bridget: You don't need to be! Nobody does! What happened between nick and mom is in the past. I just wish that everybody would let this go.

Eric: Oh, so you're telling me this isn't the first time this has come up?

Bridget: No.

Eric: Doesn't that say something to you?

Bridget: Dad, I'm not burying my head in the sand. I know that there's history there. I know nick loved mom very much. But it's over.

Eric: I hope you're right.

Bridget: You don't think that I would know?

Eric: Given your history? After what deacon caused to happen between and your mother? He almost destroyed your relationship with her.

Bridget: But I am past that, dad.

Eric: Well, I'm not, honey. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think there was something more I could have done to protect you. I'm not gonna let something like that happen again.

Bridget: This is just so different.

Eric: Honey, you're dating another man who was involved with your mother.

Bridget: He was. Past tense. Do you really think that Nick would be dating me if he was still carrying a torch for mom?

Eric: More than anything in the world, I hope that's true. But, honey, I've seen what can happen. I would hate to see something like that happen again.


Ridge: Amber was counting on the fact that I'd go looking for Bridget.

Brooke: She was going after you, too?

Ridge: It was all part of the plan.

Brooke: Part of what plan? A plan to do what? Hurting you and Bridget wasn't going to help her get Thomas back.

Ridge: Getting Bridget and I trapped down there was only step one. Amber felt that if she got Bridget and I trapped down there that we'd react to some feelings that she thinks we have for each other.

Brooke: Oh, my god. Not this again.

Ridge: Yeah. She's convinced there's something going on.

Brooke: So she deliberately put you in a life-threatening situation?

Ridge: To prove that she was right about Bridget and me.

Brooke: You could have froze to death.

Ridge: Amber is gonna pay for that. But I'm not finished. There's more.

Brooke: Oh, my god. What amber did was criminal -- going after you and Bridget. She is deranged, Ridge. We can't let her get away with this. I'm gonna call the police. Right now.


Nick: Brooke?

Stephanie: Yes. I know she's talked to you about Bridget.

Nick: Yeah, we talked. Because she was concerned about her daughter.

Stephanie: That's what she told me, too.

Nick: Well, is there a reason why you wouldn't believe it?

Stephanie: This isn't the first time that Brooke has talked to you about one of your relationships.

Nick: We're friends.

Stephanie: Brooke might think that there's more to it than that. At least on your part. I'd like to know the truth, Nick.

Nick: I told you.

Stephanie: You told me how you feel about Bridget. I want to know if you still have feelings for her mother.

Nick: Yes. I'll always have feelings for her mother. Because what we shared was something very special, something I never experienced before. It changed me, and it changed my priorities. But what I want for Brooke -- what I truly want is for her to be happy.

Stephanie: Once upon a time, you thought you were the only man that could make her happy.

Nick: I was wrong.

Stephanie: So you think she's happier with ridge than she could possibly have been with you?

Nick: She has the life she wants, Stephanie, with Ridge. Now, I've accepted that, and I've moved on. Maybe you need to accept that, because there's nothing you or anyone else is gonna do to split them up.


Bridget: Look, Dad, I -- I appreciate what you're saying.

Eric: But you're going to ignore it, right?

Bridget: I mean, you love me. You want to protect me. I understand. And I love you for it. It's just at some point in time, you've got to learn that I need to start taking care of myself. You have to trust me.

Eric: I do trust you. It's the men in your life I don't trust.

Bridget: Okay, I'll give it to you. I've made some mistakes. But I've also learned from them.

Eric: Honey, L.A. Is full of eligible, young men. Guys who have never even heard of your mother. Why does it have to be Nick?

Bridget: Who do you think you're kidding? You think I've forgotten what it was like to live here when I was in high school? You hated every guy that I brought in the house.

Eric: That was my job. I'm your father. Nobody is good enough for you.

Bridget: Especially Nick.

Eric: Honey, look, I just want you to be sure you know what you're jumping into here.

Bridget: Look before I leap? You're forgetting that you're talking to the girl that overanalyzes everything. Even Nick says that I think too much. He said that I could make instant coffee complicated.

Eric: Well, then, he definitely knows you.

Bridget: He just is able to cut through all that, tell me what I know before I even -- I even know it. You know, I guess that's why I like being with him. He's not -- I don't have to try to figure him out. He's not a chemistry problem that I feel like I need to solve. We just like being together. And we're letting ourselves get swept up in that emotion, and -- you remember what that feels like, don't you?

Eric: Yes. I'm not that old. I have seen the change in you.

Bridget: Change for the better?

Eric: Yeah. You do seem happier.

Bridget: That's what you care about the most, right?

Eric: Yeah. I guess -- I guess I just have to be grateful to Nick for that. But if you ask me, he's the lucky one.

Bridget: Thanks Dad.

Eric: Honey, I just want you to be careful, that's all. Okay? And I want you to remember that I'm here for you. No matter what happens, I'm always here for you.


Brooke: I can't believe I actually sympathized with Amber. She brought that stupid photo album over here. She made a plea for peace. Ridge, what are you doing? I have to call the police.

Ridge: You have to hear the whole story first, Brooke.

Brooke: She lured you and Bridget into the mineshaft. Now, that is kidnapping, assault.

Ridge: Just please listen. We can call the police in a minute, all right?

Brooke: All right. Tell me what happened.

Ridge: Amber set Bridget and me up. She had to work for hours setting this trap. Watching us at the cabin, waiting for you to leave with the kids, planting a camera down in the mineshaft.

Brooke: A camera?

Ridge: Yeah. She wanted hard evidence that there was something going on between Bridget and me. So she traps us down there and waits for something to happen.

Brooke: And while she was waiting, you could have died for nothing.

Ridge: She wasn't going to let us out until she had her proof.

Brooke: But she didn't get any. My, god. What kind of a sick human being does something like this?

Ridge: Brooke, wait. Wait, wait. Look, before you say anything else -- there's something you need to see.

Ridge: I have something I want to show you.
