Ridge: I know it doesn't make any sense. I know I seem crazy.

Stephanie: Honey, you're upset.

Ridge: You're damn right I'm upset! Because nobody's listening to me.

Stephanie: Well, you got hit on the head and I think you have a concussion, and I think you're confused.

Ridge: Well, I'm not! I know we buried Taylor. She died in my arms. But I cannot ignore what happened at the wedding, mother. I swear to you, that woman I saw was Taylor.


Nick: Are you okay?

Bridget: Yeah, I am. I just thought we would be married by now.

Nick: Well, it'll happen. It'll happen. I want to tell you something. You are really, really terrific with Phoebe and Steffy.

Bridget: Well, you weren't so bad yourself.

Nick: No, but you said exactly what they needed to hear.

Bridget: It's not the first crisis I've been through with those girls.

Nick: Tell me about her. What was she like?

Bridget: Oh, wow. Taylor was -- she was just incredible. Talk about knowing what to say at the right time. She could come in to one of our family's knock-down drag-out fights and have us seeing eye to eye. I mean, at least for -- at least for a little bit.

Nick: I understand she was a shrink? Seems to me exactly what this family needs.

Bridget: She just -- she had this ability to always see both sides of the issue. I thought about her during that whole thing with amber. You know, mom and ridge wanted her in jail. And Taylor would've made sure that amber got counseling. And all the stuff that happened with the company last year. She would have been the mediator.

Nick: That took a lot of guts for your mother to vote against Ridge, you know.

Bridget: If it had came down to that, I think Taylor would have done the same thing.

Nick: So you're saying they're alike? Your mother, Taylor?

Bridget: No. No, actually they're like night and day. You know, it's really amazing that two women, so completely different, can steal the same man's heart. Ridge loved her -- so much. I didn't know if he would ever find anything like that again.

Nick: He did. With your mom.

Bridget: Yeah, he did.

Nick: Still -- I always kind of wonder what would've happened if she wouldn't have died.

Bridget: Mom? How's Ridge?

Brooke: Well, the doctor says that he's all right. But all this talk about Taylor is really very unsettling. He really thinks that Taylor's alive.


Ridge: I'm telling you I saw my wife.

Stephanie: Honey, I -- I'm sure that you see her all the time. I know how much you loved her. She was an extraordinary woman.

Ridge: No, it was her, Mother. Something's going on here and I need to find out what it is.

Stephanie: Well, so do I. And I'm not denying what you think you saw. Look, everyone at the wedding heard someone scream. You got hit on the head. There was the phone call that Brooke got and there was a prowler on the property. So, something is definitely going on. I mean, it would appear that someone wants you to think that Taylor is alive. Sweetheart, this is a very vulnerable time in your life, okay. You had a really excruciating ordeal. You lost your memory, you went through that whole situation with Morgan -- isn't it possible that someone is trying to manipulate you?

Mark: Mrs. Forrester? Can I speak with you for a moment?

Stephanie: Yes, of course.

Ridge: What is that?

Stephanie: This is Taylor's death certificate.

Ridge: Can I see that?

Stephanie: Of course.

Ridge: What's happening? She looked so much like Taylor. I was sure of it. Oh, what's happening to me?


Brooke: So, have you heard from the police? Have they found out anything about the incident?

Nick: No. The old man's on it, but they don't have anything. It's like this woman disappeared into thin air.

Bridget: Mom, it's -- Mom, look, it's gonna be okay.

Brooke: Honey, you're not wearing your wedding ring.

Bridget: Oh, well, we decided to wait.

Brooke: You called off the wedding?

Bridget: No, we're gonna have a wedding. It's just we're gonna wait until ridge gets better.

Brooke: This was supposed to be the happiest day of your life.

Nick: But the bride is supposed to be the center of attention on her wedding day. We don't really think that's gonna happen until this whole mess is cleared up.

Brooke: Well, that makes sense. You should have heard Ridge talking at the hospital. How he was ranting about Taylor. And saying that she was alive. He even called her his "wife."

Nick: You know, he was out of it. He had his bell rung.

Brooke: I know, I know. It still didn't feel very good to hear that. Especially for Thomas.

Bridget: He was really freaked out, huh?

Brooke: Yes, he was. I would hate to imagine how the girls would feel about this. You didn't tell Steffy or Phoebe, did you?

Bridget: No. No, I mean, they're a little upset after what happened today. Seeing their father get hurt like that.

Brooke: You know what, I'm gonna go talk to them. Let them know that he's going to be fine.

Bridget: You know what, Mom, it's going to be okay. It really is. Whatever's going on with ridge, it's just temporary. It's going to pass.

Brooke: I hope so.


Ridge: This doesn't make sense.

Stephanie: Honey, it's all right. I promise you we will get to the bottom of this, all right. But right now you need to rest.

Ridge: Where did you get this certificate?

Mark: The hospital keeps copies on file.

Ridge: Who is this doctor? I can't read the signature.

Mark: Oh, I didn't recognize it either, so I had asked some of the nurses and the people in records and they compared the signature against doctors on staff here. They don't know who it is.

Ridge: You don't know the doctor who declared Taylor dead?

Mark: He's not on staff here. But we have physicians visiting all the time and residents on rotation.

Ridge: I didn't see any other doctor. It was just you and the heart surgeon.

Stephanie: Honey, you left the hospital before they made the declaration.

Ridge: Were you there? Did you see anybody else?

Stephanie: Well, I don't remember everything. It was a very overwhelming time.

Ridge: But somebody had to remember something. I mean, a nurse, an orderly -- I need to talk to somebody that was there when Taylor was pronounced dead.

Mark: I'll see what I can do. But in the meantime, I'm going to have a nurse give you a sedative. You need to get some rest, okay.

Stephanie: Thank you, mark.

Ridge: That's just a piece of paper, Mother. Until somebody verifies what happened --

Stephanie: Stop it. Stop it! For god sakes, she died in your arms.

Ridge: She collapsed. She took herself off the monitors. There was no alarm. No flat line. Nothing. Now, all we have is a piece of paper with a signature on it we can't even read. We don't know who did the examination. We don't even know if there was an examination.

Stephanie: Oh, stop it! My god, it was an open casket. You saw her in there. I saw her in there.

Ridge: I remember what happened at the funeral. I also know what I felt when I saw that woman today. It was Taylor. I'm telling you, it was Taylor. I don't know how that would be possible. But I know that if there's even a slim chance that she's still alive, I want to know it. One way or the other, I'm not letting this go until I have irrefutable proof.


Bridget: Poor mom.

Nick: Well, I don't blame you for worrying about her.

Bridget: I know. I can't imagine how that must feel. Think about it. Can you imagine, Ridge talking about Taylor like she's really alive?

Nick: Let's forget about all this, okay. He's in a hospital. He's safe. They're taking care of him, he's going to be fine. Can we focus on what kind of happened today and get back to the "I do" part?

Bridget: Yeah, that sounds like a plan.

Nick: I have another plan.

Bridget: Do you?

Nick: Yes. Given that tonight's our wedding night -- are we gonna spend the night together?

Bridget: I really want to.

Nick: Me, too.

Bridget: I, um -- I just -- I don't think I should leave mom alone.

Nick: Really?

Bridget: Yeah, but, you know, I could, um --

Nick: What?

Bridget: I could --

Nick: Tell me.

Bridget: I could sneak on the "Marlin." And crawl into bed with you after she falls asleep.

Nick: Oh, I like that. I like that. I'll keep the lantern burning. I like that.

Bridget: I should go check on her right now.

Nick: Not right now. You think so?

Bridget: Yeah. You know what you could do though?

Nick: What?

Bridget: You can go into the kitchen and make some bags out of all those --all the leftover food. 'Cause when I come over --

Nick: Yeah?

Bridget: I'm sure we'll work up an appetite.

Nick: The kitchen?

Bridget: Yeah.

Nick: Leftovers?

Bridget: I need to go. I'll see you later.

Nick: I think she's fine.

Bridget: I'll see you later.

[ Nick sighs ]

Nick: What's going on with you Forrester?


Stephanie: Slow down. Think about what you're actually saying here.

Ridge: I need to know, Mother.

Stephanie: Oh! If you continue to pursue this, do you realize what it's going to do to your family? You saw how it affected your son. You hurt Brooke's feelings when you said "don't you think I'd know my own wife?" You don't even know that you said it, do you? Well, I don't know whether you have a concussion, or you don't have a concussion, but I know one thing for certain. You are not thinking clearly. Now, I promise you, I will find out who this woman is. Who attacked you. The death certificate. All of it. But right now you've got to rest. That's why mark and the doctors want you here. They want to observe you. Ridge, please give me till tomorrow. I promise you I'll have some answers for you at least. Will you do that?

Ridge: Yeah.

Stephanie: Thank you. All right. I love you. I'll see you tomorrow. Please get some rest.


Ridge: Nick. Look, if anybody's with you don't let on that it's me you're talkin' to. Just listen. I need your help. This is really, really important. Do you hear me? You've gotta do something for me, Nick.

Nick: You need me to what? Okay, Forrester, take it easy. I heard you. I'll call him. And I'll make sure we're there.

Ridge: I have to do this. I've got to.

[ Speaking over P.A. System ]

Nurse: Paging Dr. Fedagian. Call extension 198. Dr. Fedagian, extension 198.


Brooke: You don't have to stay, sweetheart. I'll be fine.

Bridget: Mom, I want to be here.

Brooke: Wouldn't you rather be with Nick?

Bridget: I'm gonna see him later, don't worry about that.

Brooke: I can't believe you didn't get married.

Bridget: Honestly, I can't believe it either, but it just didn't feel right.

Brooke: I know what you mean.

Bridget: Oh, Mom --

Stephanie: Is everything all right?

Brooke: Oh, yes, yes. Everything's fine. How's Ridge?

Stephanie: Mark ordered a sedative. He wants him to sleep through the night.

Bridget: Oh, so he's agitated?

Stephanie: Very.

Brooke: Is he still convinced that woman he saw was Taylor?

Stephanie: Yes. I tried to, you know, say to him this whole thing could be some sort of hoax, you know.

Bridget: Well, he's not listening.

Stephanie: Well, I thought for a moment I had him going. I mean, it does make sense if you think about it. With everything that happened with Morgan and Amber, I mean, someone could be trying to manipulate him.

Brooke: So you thought you got through to him? But did it work?

Stephanie: No, not once Mark -- Mark came in with the death certificate. Taylor's death certificate was signed by a doctor who's not on staff at the hospital. No one recognized his name. You know, it just doesn't help matters. It just doesn't ease the doubt that he's got in his mind about this. Thank you. He's just so convinced that he saw Taylor. He's not going to let go of it. Not until we find some way to prove to him that that woman is not Taylor.


[ Owl hooting ]

Thorne: Taylor's grave? You brought me to Taylor's grave?

Nick: Yeah.

Thorne: Why?

Nick: I don't know.

Thorne: What do you mean, you don't know?

Nick: I don't know. Looks like we're about to find out.

Thorne: Ridge?

Ridge: Good, you're here.

Thorne: I thought you were in the hospital, man. Are you all right?

Ridge: I'm fine.

Thorne: He asked you to bring me here?

Nick: He said he needed help with something.

Thorne: With what?

Nick: All I know is that he thinks the woman he saw at the wedding was his dead wife.

Thorne: What? Ridge, Taylor's been dead for years, man.

Ridge: I need to be sure.

Thorne: Oh, no. No, no. We're not doing this.

Ridge: I saw her, Thorne.

Nick: You did take a pretty good shot to the head today, Forrester.

Ridge: I don't have a concussion.

Thorne: Well, something's wrong with you, Ridge, 'cause this -- this is crazy.

Ridge: I know what I saw.

Thorne: Ridge, what you saw was a woman who needed your help and you got it all mixed up in your head, man. And with everything that's happened to you it makes perfect sense.

Ridge: No, it doesn't, Thorne! None of it makes sense. The death certificate. The doctor. None of it.

Thorne: Ridge, desecrating Taylor's grave is not going to give you the peace that you want. Or, whatever's going on with you, man.

Ridge: I just need proof.

Thorne: Well, I can't help you, man. I'm sorry. But I'm not going to do this, Ridge.

Ridge: Then I'll do it myself.

Thorne: Ridge -- Ridge! You don't want to see her like this, okay.

Ridge: I have to know. If someone's playing a big trick on me, if this is just a hoax, I have to be sure. I have to know.

Thorne: Ridge, you do know. You were at Taylor's funeral. She's gone, man. It's been years.

Ridge: Today I saw her in my own backyard. Thorne, if I don't do this now, I'll spend the rest of my life wondering. I have to know.

Nick: Here's the deal. We might have to help him here. It's the only way he's gonna believe it.

Thorne: I'm not digging up a grave.

Nick: Well, we can't let him out here alone. He'll be out here all night. And his caretakers will come and take him away. Let's help him.
