[ Laughter ]

Ridge: I never thought I'd feel this way again. I just thought a part of me was lost forever.

Taylor: It was never lost. And it never will be.


Stephanie: I thought you had more sense.

Nick: What exactly are we talking about here?

Stephanie: This grave-digging bit. What the hell were you doing?

Nick: Well, what would you have me do? Just leave him there in the middle of the night in the middle of a cemetery?

Stephanie: Maybe.

Nick: I thought if I went along with him, maybe he'd come to his senses.

Stephanie: Well, obviously that didn't happen, did it?

Nick: No. I don't know how to tell you this, Stephanie, but I think your son's --

Stephanie: I know. I'm very concerned that he's having a nervous breakdown.


Bridget: Mom? What's going on in there? Is everything all right?

Brooke: Oh, yeah. Yeah, they're just all snuggled up on the bed together. Holding each other. I mean, it's exactly what you'd expect, you know, when you haven't seen somebody for years and you thought they were dead and then they're not. I'm really very happy for them.

Bridget: Do you think I should go in there and see her? I don't want to intrude. But --

Brooke: No, actually, I think you need to just give them a little more time.

Bridget: Of course, yeah.

Brooke: Taylor's been gone for so long. I think they just need some time to sort out their feelings. I can only imagine what this means to Taylor to be with her family again.

Steffy: You're crowding her too much.

Phoebe: You are!

Taylor: No, no, no. Come here. Let's all have a big family hug. Big family hug. Don't leave anybody out.

Thomas: I can't breathe.

Taylor: Oh, I'm sorry.

[ Laughter ]

Thomas: So, I don understand. You -- you were alive at the hospital?

Taylor: I was in a coma. My vital signs were so weak, anybody would have thought I had died.

Thomas: But you hadn't.

Taylor: No. No. I was in a deep, deep suspended state. There was no way of knowing if I would ever pull out of it. And there was no way of knowing that even if I did pull out of it, if I would live or if I would die. But eventually, I did pull out of it. And I worked really hard to regain my strength. Because I knew I had to fight to get back to you guys as fast as I could. Whenever I felt like giving up, I could feel you touch me and kiss me and come near me. And whenever there were times that I felt like I might just let go, I could hear your prayers.

Steffy: You could actually hear us?

Taylor: I -- I know there's no scientific basis for it, but I could. I could hear your prayers. I could hear every one of them. You guys -- you guys were the only thing I had to look forward to. You were the only thing I wanted to live for.


Stephanie: I have been very concerned ever since he's come back from Italy. He's been unpredictable, overwrought, emotional. And I put it down to the concussions. But now with all of this stuff about Taylor, I mean, I -- I guess I just didn't realize he had so many unresolved feelings about her death.

Nick: Well, you would know better than I would. Maybe he was there to pick up the pieces for the kids and be a support system and he just couldn't deal with his own grief.

Stephanie: Whatever the reason, he's in a fragile state of mind. And he needs everyone's support, including yours. He needs the people who care about him to stand up to him and not go off on some cockamamie grave-digging expedition.

Nick: I didn't really know he was that bad off.

Stephanie: Well, now you do.

Nick: I'll do whatever I can to help my brother.

Phoebe: I knew you could hear us. I knew we were connected somehow. I knew you could hear me, because I could hear you.

Taylor: Yeah.

Phoebe: But you know where I never felt you? I never felt you at the cemetery. I could never feel you there.

Thomas: We all thought dad had lost it when he said he'd seen you at Bridget's wedding. We thought you'd flipped out.

[ Laughter ] Especially grandma. I can't wait to see her face when she finds out you were right all along.

Steffy: It isn't funny.

Ridge: Oh, sweetie, we're all just very, very happy.

Steffy: Me, too. But why am I crying?

Ridge: Look, if you need to cry, you go ahead and cry. We all need to cry. We've been holding it a long time, haven't we?

Steffy: This is the happiest day of my life.

Ridge: Yeah, mine, too. Mine, too. The happiest day of this family's life. And I don't want it ever to end.


Brooke: They deserve to be happy again, the children, after all they've been through. And Taylor -- I mean, she has suffered.

Bridget: Well, yeah, but not like those kids. She was in a coma most of the time, isn't that what you said?

Brooke: Yes.

Bridget: There's a really good possibility that in her head, she's only been gone for a couple of months. She may think that she's coming back to her house and her family, her husband -- without having any idea of how many things have actually changed since she left.

Brooke: And her family will always be her family. And she's always welcome here. But Ridge is my husband now. And that is one change that she's going to have to accept.

Nick: Stephanie, whatever Ridge needs, I'm there for him.

Stephanie: I'm glad to hear that. Because I think we need to hospitalize him.

Nick: Hospitalize?

Stephanie: I've spoken to a very, very good friend of the family, Dr. James Warwick, a psychiatrist. He knows all the best people in the field and can get him into the right institution. And hopefully, it would be a rapid recovery.

Nick: Wait a minute. We're talking about a psychiatric hospital?

Stephanie: Yes, it'll be hard on the children and on Brooke, because he's been gone and he's just back. I mean -- you were there for Brooke and the children before and I'd like to think I could count on you. I'd like to think I could count on you to step up to this again.

Nick: Yeah, whatever. Whatever you want. Whatever they need. I'll be there.

Bridget: Taylor is just going to need some time to sort everything out. It's got to be strange to have left your babies and then come back, and they're all grown up.

Brooke: But she knows how long she's been gone.

Bridget: Cognitively, yes, she recognizes she's been gone for a number of years. But instinctively and intuitively, she feels like she still belongs here. You know, like this room that's your bedroom, it was her room. I mean, it may have never even entered her mind that she isn't coming back to this house to stay, because to her, it feels like it's still her home.


[ Baby crying ]

Taylor: I just can't get over how much they've grown. I've missed so much.

Ridge: I can't tell you how many times I've gone to an art show or a tennis match that they were involved in and I'd look at the three of them and my heart would just be bursting with pride. Then I'd look over at you in the seat next to me, wouldn't even think about it, but I'd just look over, because I wanted to share a smile with you. Of course, you weren't there. I thought this connection that I felt that you were sitting there next to me, I thought it would go away. But it never did. I'd put the kids to bed, kiss them good night, tell them how proud their mommy was of them, because I knew you were. I wanted to be both mommy and daddy to you guys. I didn't want you to feel this incredible emptiness that I was feeling inside. I knew I'd never hold you again. I'd never laugh with you again. No matter how much I tried, I just never got over the fact that you were gone. And then, I knew. Part of me had gone with you. And there was just no way that I could be both parents to our kids. I was having trouble just being one.

Thomas: Dad -- dad, you did a great job.

Steffy: Yeah.

Phoebe: Of course, you did.

Ridge: Yeah, but it was nothing like having your mommy there, was it?

Taylor: Ridge? You did -- you did a wonderful job. You pulled our family through. Even in the middle of tough times, you showed them that there were still good times. Look at these guys. They're beautiful. They're incredible. You did a wonderful job. But you know what? You don't have to do it alone anymore. I'm home.


Bridget: Hi.

Nick: Hey, there.

Bridget: What's wrong?

Nick: Stephanie was just here. And they want to put Ridge away.

Bridget: What?

Nick: They want to institutionalize Ridge.

Bridget: Oh, I don't think that that's necessary.

Nick: It may sound a little harsh, but you have to admit, he's acting like he's got a screw loose. He dug up his dead wife's grave.

Bridget: Nick --

Nick: He thinks he sees her everywhere he goes.

Bridget: Nick, he's not seeing it. Hes seeing things, yes, but he's not making them up.

Nick: You, too, now, huh? Must be a full moon out or something.

Bridget: Look, I don't know exactly how or what this means, but -- but Taylor is alive. And she is with Ridge and their kids right now. I mean, I saw her with my own eyes. It's true. She's alive.


Taylor: We are going to make up for every single day I was gone.

Steffy: How are we going to do that?

Taylor: I don't know, but we are. I am going to go everywhere you go. I'm gonna see everything you see. Oh, we're going to stay up late at night. And we're going to talk and we're going to laugh and we're going to cry. And you're going to tell me every single thing that's happened while I've been gone. And then when we're all done, it will be just like I was never gone at all.

[ Baby crying ] What's that?

Phoebe: R.J.

Ridge: Taylor, I -- I probably should have told you, earlier.

[ Knock at the door ]

Brooke: Can we come in?

Taylor: Oh, of course. Who is this sweet little baby?

Brooke: Ridge didn't tell you? This is our son.
