Stephanie: Oh, good, you're right here. How are you feeling? Still nauseous?

Bridget: A little bit. What is that?

Stephanie: Oh, I got something -- something for your tummy. And I got a pregnancy test.

Bridget: No, no. No, I can't -- I can't be pregnant. I think I've just made myself sick thinking about everything.

Stephanie: Wait a minute. Are you telling me that it's physically impossible? Are you on the pill or something? Five minutes. It's all it'll take.


Nick: I promise you, you'll be happy again.

Brooke: What are we doing, Nick?

Nick: I don't know. What are we doing? I'm sorry.

Brooke: No, no, I'm -- I'm sorry.

Nick: I think I should call Bridget.

Brooke: What are you going to say?

[ Phone rings ]

Stephanie: Will that be Nick? Does he know you're here? Honey, you don't want him to send out some sort of a search party, now do you? Let me talk to him.

Bridget: No, I've got it. Hello?

Nick: Hey, where are you?

Bridget: I'm fine.

Nick: Well, Hope's doing better. We just got home with her.

Bridget: Oh, you and my mother?

Nick: Yeah. Yeah, but she's doing great.

Bridget: Good, good, I'm glad.

Nick: Where are you? At the University?

Bridget: No.

Nick: At the boat?

Bridget: Look, I just needed a little time.

Nick: I'm sorry I haven't been around much, but you know that Hope wanted me at the hospital.

Bridget: Hope, right. Right, yeah, sure.

Brooke: Let me talk to her.

Nick: Your mother would like to talk to you.

Brooke: Hi, honey. I'm sorry, I know it may seem like I've been monopolizing Nick's time, but you know how he feels about Hope.

Bridget: I know how he feels, yeah.

Brooke: But he misses you. He's got something wonderful planned for the two of you tonight.

Bridget: I'm not going to be home tonight, Mother.

Brooke: Bridget, don't be angry.

Bridget: I'm not angry. I'm just a big girl. If I want some time to myself, that's fine, right?

Brooke: Well, yes, of course it is.

Bridget: All right, good. Okay. Bye, Mom. Bye.


Stephanie: She's with him again.

Bridget: Well, Hope just got out from the hospital, so yeah.

Stephanie: She needed an escort for that?

Bridget: Look, I know that I have to end things with him. It's just not gonna be very easy, okay?

Stephanie: I understand that, honey. But I -- you need to know what it is that you're ending.

Bridget: I just don't want to make this any more impossible than it already is.

Stephanie: Well, if you're pregnant, you need to have that information.

Bridget: You know, the first thing you learn in medical school is how useless a test can be if there's nothing that you can do about the result.

Stephanie: And you know the first thing you learn in life? You can't make an intelligent decision if you don't know what decisions have to be made. Now, think about that. You're refusing to acknowledge what's right in front of you, what's going on between your mother and Nick. That's what's driven you to distraction. Don't get ambushed by the obvious again.


Nick: She didn't tell you where she was either?

Brooke: I just don't think Bridget wants to be found, Nick. Look, give her an hour and call her back. I think she'll understand.

Nick: Maybe she's understood all along, better than we did. Have we been lying to her?

Brooke: No.

Nick: Well, then how do you explain what almost happened here? What's the word for when you think you're telling the truth, but you're really not? Because Bridget saw it, and we didn't. I have basically been unfaithful to her with you in every way but one, and now we both know that that can happen, if we let it.

Brooke: Oh, look, we're exhausted, okay? We've been up all night at the hospital.

Nick: That doesn't account for this, and you know it! My god, what -- what man wouldn't consider himself lucky to be in love with two women like you and your daughter in just one lifetime. And I don't understand it. I don't know how it's possible. No one told me that someone else can come along and make you feel things differently, yet the same as somebody else.

Brooke: Well, I know all about that. You should have asked me.

Nick: It should have happened for us.

Brooke: If I just hadn't made Ridge everything. You know, if I hadn't made him my whole life.

Nick: Then what? Say it, what?

Brooke: We could have been happy. And now that I've got wise to myself, you're with Bridget.

[ Brooke sighs ]

Nick: And I'm still feeling things for you that I'm not supposed to feel anymore. And I know that you're feeling them, too.


Stephanie: Are you all right in there, honey?

Bridget: Yeah, yeah, just give me a minute, please. It's positive. False positives are pretty rare.

Stephanie: In my day, the rabbit just died. I mean, I understand these tests are a little riskier and harder to read.

Bridget: No, this wasn't one of them.

Stephanie: It's gonna be all right, honey.

Bridget: Sure, yeah. What am I supposed to do? You said I could just rely on you.

Stephanie: I know you're angry with me, and I know that I -- I let the family down.

Bridget: Can my pregnancy please just not be about you?

Stephanie: At least now you know what you're facing.

Bridget: A lifetime as somebody's mother, on my own.

Stephanie: I was thinking about the break with nick. It's not gonna be clean. He's not the kind of fellow that just walks away from a child that's his own without a fight.

Bridget: This should have been the happiest day of our lives. We've laid in bed at night planning for this. I don't think he ever got over finding out that R.J. wasn't his child. Now the thing that he's wanted most in the whole world, he's got. Why couldn't he have just loved me?

Stephanie: Honey, I -- I think he does, in his own way. It's just, he loves your mother more.

Bridget: But my mother can't ever give him what I've just given him.

Stephanie: Don't start thinking that way. You can't marry somebody that Brooke isn't going to let go of.

Bridget: I don't even care about getting married anymore. I'm over trying to get married. This just is. This -- it just had happened. We didn't -- we didn't try. And my mother's not holding onto him. I -- I never said that she was. Nick's just holding on to the fantasy of the family that he's never been able to have. But now he can have it.

Stephanie: You think having a baby is going to fix everything? Oh, that's a fantasy.

Bridget: No, no, but what if we both want it? What if we both want it? What's the matter with me? He's been calling me and begging me to come home to him, and I have the news -- I have the news of the one thing that he has wanted ever since the day that I've met him. I -- what am I crying about? Why can't this be the happiest day of our lives?

Stephanie: You are in no condition to drive to Los Angeles.

Bridget: Nope. That was before. Now I know exactly what I have to do.

Stephanie: No, you had better stay here tonight. Because you don't know how you are going to feel about this in the morning.

Bridget: You told me that test would give me clarity, and you were right.

Stephanie: Honey, you've had six different kinds of clarity in the past two hours.

Bridget: Oh, you know what, things don't have to be so complicated!

Stephanie: Oh, yes they do! There's another life involved here.

Bridget: You know what? I love Nick, and he loves me. And all I've ever wanted from him was a promise that I could believe in. And that's exactly what this baby is. It's a promise that he will not break.

Stephanie: What about the way he looked at your mother? The way he touched her? You said he's never touched you that way.

Bridget: What were they supposed to do when they found out Hope didn't have brain damage. I had no business feeling ignored. If you were any kind of friend, you would have told me to grow up.

Stephanie: Well, I am a friend who's telling you right now, you've got raging hormones, and you better not do anything without thinking it through.

Bridget: Why? So I can run away and hide my pregnancy. That would be your style, not mine.

Stephanie: I'm not suggesting anything of the kind. You and that baby are going to be miserable if you marry someone that's in love with another person.

Bridget: Oh right, my mother. 'Cause once you have a taste of her, you can never love me, right?

Stephanie: Your mother isn't one -- one tenth the woman that you are. If you don't know that I only want the best for you and that baby, you don't know me at all.

Bridget: I know that you would love for me to be just all alone and self-righteous and miserable as you are now. I used to want to grow up and be you. But now I can thank you for showing me what a bitter dead-end that would be.


Brooke: You remember the day you took me to Catalina?

Nick: I remember.

Brooke: Well, that was the day that I pictured it all. And I thought to myself, I could love this life. I could love this man. And I did. I do. Then sometimes it just gets to be too late.

Nick: We're over because we made up our minds to be.

Brooke: And I want Bridget to feel safe. Especially safe from me. Because I love her so much, Nick. She's the proudest thing in my life, and the day that I betrayed her, that was my greatest shame. And I don't want that to ever happen again.

Nick: I know that.

Brooke: I'd rather put a gun to my head and pull the trigger. I owe her a life with somebody that can make her happy.

Nick: And she's going to have that. She's going to have that with me.

Brooke: Thank you. So what do we say? Next time she wonders if you and I --

Nick: We tell her the truth. That she wasn't imagining something between us. But the key is, we can't act on it. Because she can't be hurt more than she's been hurt already.

Brooke: That's the way it has to be.

Nick: That's the way it has to be.


[ Knock at the door ]

 Stephanie: Aren't you going to let me in?

Eric: No.

Stephanie: Eric, don't be an idiot! We have a crisis!

Eric: I'm going to change this lock.

Stephanie: Mm-hmm. Why don't you just bring a bucket of sand into the house and stick your head into it?

Eric: I knew this was going to happen. I knew you were going to develop some kind of serious problem that only I could solve. Well, I'm not your emotional 911 anymore, Stephanie. I quit that job.

Stephanie: Eric, this is not about me. And it's not about you. It's about your daughter, who's on the verge of breakdown.

Eric: Now, I'm not going to fall for that, I'm not. If she has something to say to me, she will. She and I have a relationship that works.

Stephanie: For you.

Eric: Look, I'm not going to kick in her door and give her some list of instructions on how to live her life. She doesn't need that from me, and I don't need it from you.

Stephanie: Fine, fine. Crank up the music. Carry on the way you are. Why should I give a -- why should I care if you are the last person in the world to find out that your daughter is pregnant?


Brooke: I thought you'd left.

Nick: Oh. Yeah, me too. But the food showed up when I was taking off.

Brooke: Your romantic dinner with Bridget.

Nick: Yeah. But she wasn't coming home tonight, so I didn't want to let it go to waste. Trying to be quiet. I figured you were sleeping.

Brooke: Have you ever been too tired to sleep? Thought I'd come down and grab a book.

Nick: Oh, well, maybe some heavy French food would do the trick, huh?

Brooke: It does smell good. Let me just put something else on.

Nick: No, no. Come on, come on, sit down. So you want salad first or salad last?

Brooke: How cold is everything else?

Nick: Probably pretty cold. Let's see. We got fish I don't know how to pronounce and vegetable who really cares.

Brooke: Vegetables, please.

Nick: Well, let's have a toast, huh? What should we toast to?

Brooke: To you and Bridget.

Nick: And no regrets.

Brooke: I don't even know what that feels like.

Nick: Okay. Then to saying goodbye with no regrets.

Brooke: You know, you should really have Bridget move in with you. Because as long as she's here --

Nick: That means I'd be here, and she'd see us together and that would be bad. What's the matter?

Brooke: Nothing. I'll just miss you.

 Nick: You're not going to start to cry, are you?

Brooke: Oh, no.

Nick: You do cry more than anybody I know. Don't cry please.

Brooke: You know me.

Nick: Remember the promise I made? That if you need anything, I'm not far.

Brooke: I'll be fine.

Nick: Now, if some night in shining armour rides up and sweeps you off your feet --

Brooke: That's kind of hard to imagine at the moment.

Nick: You have no idea how hard it is not to love you.

[ Door slams shut ]

Bridget is glaring at Nick and Brooke.
