Brooke: Yes, honey. It's me. It's mommy. Oh, did you hear that? I think she just said "ma."

Hector: Yeah, she did.

Brooke: Yeah, she did. You're gonna be okay. Your here with me and Hector. Hector saved your life.

Hector: I didn't save her, Brooke. Nick did. Nick saved her.


Nick: I don't know if your listening, but I hope you hear me. I'm not much of a praying man. And I don't like asking for things, either. But I have to live with what I did.


Bridget: Dad. What are you doing here?

Eric: The nurse told me I could find you in here. They didn't give you this office, did they?

Bridget: Yeah, right. Almost, maybe.

Eric: Do you know how happy it makes me to see you back at your studies again?

Bridget: Well, I'm really glad that something makes you happy right now.

Eric: Thanks, sweetie.

Bridget: You know, I just thought that if I'd kept pursuing my studies, then maybe I would've realized that Stephanie's heart attack was phony.

Eric: Oh, no. I don't want you worrying about Stephanie, all right. You got enough on your plate without you worrying about Stephanie or me or your mother. Or your wedding --

Bridget: My wedding?

Eric: Yeah. You're going to be busy enough around here. There's no reason to rush into that.

Bridget: Dad, I have been trying to get married for months. I don't think it would exactly be rushing.

Eric: Maybe you should take a breather. Put your energies somewhere else.

Bridget: Dad, our energies are exactly where they need to be. On each other.

Eric: Mm-hmm. And on your mother.

Bridget: Dad, mom has been going through a lot. I just feel like she needs support from someone.

Eric: That's kind of what I wanted to talk to you about. So I wanted to tell you something before you hear it from someplace else.

Bridget: What?

Eric: I proposed to your mother.

Bridget: What? Dad, you're still married to Stephanie.

Eric: Not for long.

Bridget: I don't understand. I -- god, well, obviously I would be thrilled if you and mom got back to -- I -- just a couple of days ago, she was talking about getting back with Ridge.

Eric: Well, she's given that up.

Bridget: Did she say yes?

Eric: No. No, she turned me down. But, whether your mother wants to admit it or not, she needs a man in her life. And I was hoping it would be me. For her sake. And for yours.

Bridget: This doesn't have anything to do with me.

Eric: Yes, it does. Because I know what it would do to you if your mother ended up with Nick.


Brooke: I'm telling you, she said "ma." Hector heard it, too.

Dr. Sobel: Did she open her eyes?

Brooke: No. But she did respond. She must have heard me talking.

Dr. Sobel: That's a positive sign.

Brooke: So she's improving?

Dr. Sobel: I won't know until we run more tests.

Hector: MRI?

Dr. Sobel: Yeah. If her condition is changing, I need to know exactly what's going on.

Dr. Sobel: Right now, I'd like to examine her again before I take her back to radiology.

Brooke: Yes, of course. Hope, honey, the doctor's here. And he's gonna check you, okay? You said something before. That Nick saved her life?

Hector: Yeah.

Brooke: Hector, I know that I was partially responsible. I should have upgraded that spa system. But Nick was supposed to be watching her. He's the reason she's in here.

Hector: And he never should've taken his eyes off her, that's true. But if Nick hadn't known how to perform CPR on a child, Hope probably would have died before the ambulance got there.


Bridget: Not again. Dad, I thought we'd moved past this.

Eric: Well, you can't move past it, honey, until you deal with it.

Bridget: What's there to deal with? Nick is completely committed to me. You heard him. And you were supporting us.

Eric: Yeah, well, my situation with Stephanie kind of changed my perspective.

[ Bridget sighs ]

Eric: As long as I'm being honest about myself with my relationship with Stephanie, my whole commitment to her. I have realized that I never really got over Brooke. And no man ever really does.

Bridget: Nick did. Why are you doing this?

Eric: 'Cause I don't want you to get hurt, honey.

Bridget: Well, you're hurting me now! Stirring up my insecurities and making me doubt my fiancé.

Eric: I debated bringing this up with you, really. Because I knew how you would react.

Bridget: Well, Dad --

Eric: I want you to face reality here.

Bridget: Daddy, I am so over competing with Brooke!

Eric: This isn't just about your mother. Hope has a very strong hold on Nick, too.


Brooke: How is she, doctor?

Dr. Sobel: Her vitals are stable. There's still some congestion in her lungs. But she can breath on her own. Right now, I think our greatest concern is the possibility of cerebral necrosis. However, there is every indication that if hope has suffered any brain damage, it may not be major. I'm going to check with radiology, make sure everything is set.

Brooke: Did you hear that, sweetheart? The doctor says you're going to be okay.

Hector: Hang in there, Hope. We're here for you.

Hope: Nick. Nick.

Brooke: She's asking for Nick.

Hector: Brooke, I know you're angry with him. And you have every right to be. He let her play in the spa unattended and she almost drowned. But it wasn't intentional or malicious.

Brooke: You think I should tell him that she's improving?

Hector: It's not my place to tell you what to do. But it is my experience to tell you that no one feels worse about an accident like this than the person responsible.

Brooke: I told him to leave the hospital. I told him not to stay.

Hector: Well, he didn't leave. Nick's in the chapel praying for your daughter.


Nick: You know, you can't fool me. I know you don't make 'em like this little princess. She's just so sweet, perfect. She's the light of everybody's life. And more than anything in the world, I'll do anything not to change that.

[ Nick remembering ] You can't take her. I beg you. You gotta bring her back to her mother. I'll do anything. I'll do anything, but just please, bring her back.


Eric: Bridget, Nick loves Hope as if she were his own daughter.

Bridget: He doesn't have to stop loving her just because he marries me.

Eric: Sweetheart, they were -- they were a family together.

Bridget: No, they weren't. Nick never married mom.

Eric: That's because she hadn't given up on Ridge. But now, she has.

Bridget: Well, good for her. I'm really proud of her. If she wants to move on with her life from Ridge, I'm excited for her. But it doesn't have anything to do with me. And I'm not gonna let you or anyone else make me feel insecure about that. I think I know my fiancé a little bit better than you do.

Eric: I thought I knew Stephanie, too!

Bridget: All right, Dad, I know that your feeling betrayed. And I know you're having trouble trusting right now. But you can believe me, and I'm telling you. Nothing like this is gonna to happen to me.

Eric: Well, I'm telling you that it could and it can, honey. And it's not because nick doesn't love you! Of course he loves you! But you've heard him say himself. The happiest time in his life is when he was planning a future. With Brooke. And when he was helping her raise Hope and when they were awaiting the birth of that baby.

Bridget: R.J. is Ridge's son.

Eric: Yes. And that's the only reason that Brooke and Nick are not together today!

Bridget: Dad, why would you say that?

Eric: Honey, you listen to me. Listen to me. You've gotta face this. Brooke spent years of her life pursuing a man that wasn't committed to her. I cannot -- I cannot stand by and let that happen to you.

Bridget: No, I'm not gonna listen to this.

Eric: Yes, you are. Yes, you are, honey. I wanna help you. I want to help you.

Bridget: If this is your idea of help, then I don't want it.

Eric: You listen to me. You listen to me. You -- you deserve a man who's completely committed to you. You deserve that. Do you really believe that's Nick?

Bridget: Yes.

Eric: No, you don't. I don't think you do. Because I've seen it, and I know you have, too. How committed he is to Brooke. And to those children. He's so committed to them, he's like -- he's like a father to them.

Bridget: I've dealt with all of that.

Eric: He hasn't. He's not gonna be able to get over those feelings. Those feelings are very, very strong. It's a bond that cannot be broken.

Bridget: Stop it. Stop this. Nick loves me.


Nick: I love her so much. I love that little girl with all my heart. And I'm not asking for forgiveness. I just don't want her to suffer because of my mistake. I don't want her mother to suffer because of my mistake. It's my mistake. So I'm begging you to dig down deep and bring that little girl back. Because it's not her time to go. It's not her time to go.

Brooke: Nick.

Nick: What? Did something happen.

Brooke: Hope's asking for you.

Nick: She's awake?

Brooke: She hasn't opened her eyes yet.

Nick: But she's improving?

Brooke: The doctor took her for some tests. They'll know soon.

Nick: Thanks for telling me. She asked for me? That she wants to see me?

Brooke: You should be there when they bring her back into the room.

Nick: I wouldn't be anywhere else.


Bridget: You're my father. You're supposed to support me.

Eric: You're making a mistake.

Bridget: Why? Do you believe that no man could ever love me more than they love my mother?

Eric: Not this man, no. God, honey, I hate -- I hate saying these things to you. I hate hurting you like this. But it's the only way I can protect you.

Bridget: Well, I don't need your protection. Not from my mother. Or from Nick.

Eric: They're not going to betray you intentionally, honey. They care too much about you. But your mother -- your mother doesn't control the effect that she has on the men in her life. The hold that she has on them.

Bridget: She didn't have that hold on ridge, did she? I am not gonna let you poison my relationship with your suspicions and your doubt. I won't let you do that to my mother. And I won't let you do that to nick. And I sure as hell won't let you do that to me. No Dad, just –


Hector: Bridget, I've been looking everywhere for you.

Bridget: Oh, is there something that I can do to help you?

Hector: You haven't heard.

Bridget: Heard what?

Hector: I told your mom that I was gonna let everybody know what's going on. I left messages for Rick and for your father.

Bridget: Did something happen to my mom?

Hector: It's hope. There was an accident in the spa. Her hair got caught in the drain.

Bridget: Oh, no.

Hector: Look, she's been stabilized, okay?

Bridget: Oh, dear god.

Hector: But she's in and out of conscious.

Bridget: So your saying that she --

Hector: She almost drowned.

Bridget: So, she's here?

Hector: Yeah.

Bridget: In the hospital?

Hector : Yeah, the doctor took her down for an MRI.

Bridget: Did she stop breathing?

Hector: For a little while.

Hector: Look, she's responding to your mom's voice, okay? She is.

Bridget: Okay.

Hector: Brooke was talking to her and Hope said "ma."

Bridget: That's good. Okay. I just -- I need to see her.

Hector: Dr. Sobel doesn't want her to have too many visitors right now. He's only letting in two people in at a time.

Bridget: Well, I don't care. My mother must be terrified. She needs someone by her side.


Brooke: Hope, honey. Uncle Nick is here. I know you wanted to see him.

Nick: Hi, angel. Mommy tells me you're getting better. I'm real glad about that. You know, I've been praying real hard for you. I should've watched you at the spa. I'm so sorry, sweetie. I'm so sorry. I let you down in the worst way, and I promise you, I'll never let you down again. I'll always be there for you. Forever. Forever and ever.

Brooke: Nick. Nick. Hope. Hope, sweetie, are you okay?

Hope: My hair got stuck.

Nick: You hair did get stuck. That must've been so scary, huh? But you're okay now. You're going to be okay now.


Bridget: Excuse me, is this Hope Logan's room?

Dr. Sobel yes, but you can't go in right now.

Bridget: I'm a family member.

Dr. Sobel: She's only allowed two visitors at a time. You can go in when they come out.


Nick: She's gonna be okay. You're gonna be okay.

Brooke: She remembers.

Nick: That's a good thing. You know, that's a great thing.

Brooke: My little girl is all right.

Nick: I'm so sorry. I know I've said it before, but you have to know it doesn't make a difference -- I'm just so sorry. You've got to know how sorry I am that my mistake could've cost your family and could've cost her, and could've cost you -- I'm so sorry.

Brooke: Nick.

Nick: I'm sorry.

Brooke: I forgive you. I forgive you.

Nick: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
