Nick: What did you say?

Brooke: I love you. I always have.


[ Knock on door ]

Gaby: Hey, sorry to interrupt. I just need to grab a few things.

Thomas: Hey, you shouldn't have to knock. You're my wife.

Gaby: What if I walked in on you naked?

Thomas: Ooh. I like the sound of that. We should try that sometime.

Gaby: Your parents would kill me.

Thomas: What, are you kidding? With everything going on in this house. We could get away with just about anything.

Gaby: Things are hard right now.

Thomas: Yeah. Yeah. I don't see my parents worrying too much about our marriage when it doesn't look like theirs is going to make it.


Thorne: Ridge, you know you can't be married to Taylor, and still have feelings for Brooke.

Ridge: Well, I can't not be in love with Brooke just like that. It's not like a switch I can just reach out and turn off.

Thorne: Well then you don't have another choice. If what you just told me is true, if you still love Brooke, then you have to talk to Taylor.

Ridge: And tell her what?

Thorne: The truth.

Ridge: Truth? What that -- Brooke is unforgettable.


Bridget: I don't want to wait any longer. Nick thinks I killed our child! Oh, dear god, what have I done?

Dante: It's a test.

Bridget: No, it's cruelty! That's what it is.

Dante: You have to make sure. I mean, right now, your mother and Nick are free to act if they have feelings for one another.

Bridget: No, it was wrong. I was wrong to do this. I love him, Dante. I don't want him to suffer. I don't want to punish him anymore.

Dante: I know, but you have to know the truth. Okay? And you will very soon.

[ Knock on door ]

Bridget: Its open. Hi.

Catherine: Hi.


Brooke: Maybe Bridget's love for you has died. But mine hasn't. It never will.

Nick: I know what you're doing. I know why you're just saying this. You're saying this so I won't leave, aren't you? Aren't you?

Brooke: No, no, I'm not!

Nick: Harbormaster. Harbormaster, Shady Marlin, come in. Harbormaster, Shady Marlin, come in!

Harbormaster: Harbormaster. Go ahead, shady marlin.

Nick: Shady Marlin departing harbor, 1900 hours. Compass heading 165.

Harbormaster: Negative shady marlin. We've got winds at 45 knots and 20 foot seas. All boats remain harbored.

Nick: Repeat! Compass heading 165.

Harbormaster: Negative shady marlin. Small craft advisory. All boats remain harbored until --

[ Nick turns off the radio ]

Nick: Get off the boat.

Brooke: Nick, you heard what they said! 20-foot swells!

Nick: Get off the boat!

Brooke: No! No! I am not letting you go out there and kill yourself!


Gaby: Are things really that bad between your mom and dad?

Thomas: There's been a lot of tension between them lately.

Gaby: Look, Thomas, if it's because of me --

Thomas: No, it's not -- it's not just you. It's -- it's Brooke, it's dad, it's -- it's everything.

Gaby: Gosh, I really thought that when your mom and dad renewed their vows, everything would be okay.

Thomas: Yeah, well, so did I. He loves mom.

Gaby: Yeah, but I mean, it's hard to expect him to just forget his feelings for Brooke, especially when they share a son. He's gonna be part of their lives forever.

Thomas: I know, and mom knows that, too. But the rest of it --

[ Thomas sighs ] She just didn't do anything to deserve what dad's putting her through right now. And I don't even think he means to. Maybe he doesn't even realize what he's doing, but he's pushing mom to a place -- I just -- I hope he comes to his senses before it's too late.


Ridge: Mother manipulated me, Thorne. She used the situation to get what she wanted.

Thorne: But it's not what you wanted.

Ridge: I love Taylor, as much as I ever have. It's just --

Thorne: It's just you're still in love with Brooke, and you don't know what to do about it.

Ridge: I don't want to hurt Taylor. I swear, I don't.

Thorne: Ridge, you can't expect her just to sit around, be patient, put everything on hold while you go back and forth. Taylor deserves better than this.

Ridge: Oh, you don't think I know that, Thorne?

Thorne: Well, then act like it, Ridge. Because if you think she's gonna sit around and wait -- however hard it is, however much it hurts, you have to talk to her, Ridge. You have to be honest about your feelings for Brooke.

Ridge: How? How do I do that?

Taylor: You don't have to say anything, Ridge. I've already heard enough.


Nick: I mean it, Brooke. Get off the boat now.

Brooke: I'm not going anywhere.

Nick: Damn it, stop doing this.

Brooke: I love you, Nick. I love you.

Nick: Don't say that. Don't say that!

Brooke: It's true!

Nick: Don't you get it? I can't stay here anymore. I can't keep ruining people's lives. I've brought nothing but pain to you and your daughter.

Brooke: You're wrong. You brought caring, you've brought love!

Nick: Oh, love. Love, huh? Well, I guess love isn't good enough, is it? My love, look what it's done. Look what it's driven Bridget to do. Because I promised her I wouldn't be like the other men in her life, that I wouldn't hurt her. And look what's happened now. Just leave me alone and get off the boat!

Brooke: No! No, I am not gonna let you do this. I'm not gonna let it end this way.

Nick: Don't you get it, Brooke? It's already ended. It's already ended! I lost my child. I lost my child. I lost my child.


Thomas: With all this going on, I can't even concentrate on designs for the fashion show.

Gaby: Your big debut.

Thomas: Oh, tell me about it.

Gaby: Thomas, these are amazing.

Thomas: Well, with any luck, the show will be a success, and then I'll get to have my own line --

Gaby: It's not about luck. It's all about talent. And you, Thomas Forrester, have a special gift.

Thomas: Still, it just won't mean the same if my parents aren't together. I just always assumed that when this day came, they would be.

Gaby: They're gonna be there for you, and they're gonna be so proud.

Thomas: I just want them to be happy, the way they used to be.

Gaby: I'm here for you. And I know that this is a marriage in name only, but I'm really starting to feel like part of this family.


Thorne: I'm going to go. If there's anything that I can do for either of you --

Taylor: Thanks.

Thorne: Okay.

Ridge: I'm sorry, Doc. I really didn't mean for you to hear it like that.

Taylor: It's only natural you would try to spare my feelings.

Ridge: I just haven't expressed it because I can barely face it myself.

Taylor: You still love Brooke. She's unforgettable in your mind.

Ridge: How can you just stop loving someone? Someone you've shared a life with, a child? How can I just forget her?

Taylor: I never asked you to. I would be a fool to think you could. But we renewed our vows, Ridge, and I told you what I need. Two people who are married cannot have divided feelings. And from the sound of things, you do.


Catherine: And when I walked in last night, I saw them together, in each other's arms. But no, no. Bridget, it wasn't like that. Brooke and Nick are in real pain. They blame themselves for what they think you did. They were only consoling each other, and it didn't lead to anything else. It was all about you. And Nick came by again today and told your mom that he thinks that you want nothing to do with him, that you don't need him.

Bridget: Oh, god, that's not true.

Catherine: He wants you to be happy, Bridget. I know he does. He just feels helpless.

Bridget: Because of me. Because I've ruined everything.

Catherine: No, not if you tell him the baby is still alive. If you do that, there's a real chance that everything will be fine, that you and Nick and the baby will be fine.


Nick: I never thought that I'd feel this again -- losing a child and a family and the woman I love.

Brooke: I know. Nick --

Nick: Enough of this. I feel like a damn fool. I don't want to be a father. I wasn't meant to be a father.

Brooke: You don't mean that.

Nick: I do mean it! I don't want it anymore! I don't want a kid and a family. What I want is to be left alone. I wanna be alone. And I want you off this boat. That's what I want.

Brooke: No!

Nick: I want you to forget about ever knowing me. I want you to leave me alone and get off the boat. That's what --

Brooke: No, I won't! I can't! You're the only man that I could ever count on.

Nick: Well, then I'm sorry for you.

Brooke: You made a vow to me -- to me and to my children that you would always be there. And you were there when Ridge turned his back on me. You were there for me, for Hope, for R.J. We need you. I need you. I can't lose you now. I won't let you -- I won't let you leave me. Please, I need you, Nick. I need you.


Ridge: I know I need to leave Brooke behind and commit myself to you. But I can't lie to you, doc. I think about Brooke and the family that we have together. Now, I'm asking you to understand and be patient.

Taylor: I have been patient. I came back here to be with you, because I wanted our life back. And for weeks I waited, and I gave you the time that you needed to make your decision. You know, the fact that I even had to deal with you choosing between Brooke and me was bad enough. But then I still gave you time, and I was trusting that you would feel what I feel -- that we were meant to be together. And now, here we are, and it's like you're making the same choice all over again! I can't deal with it! That is unacceptable.

Ridge: Taylor --

Taylor: No, no. I don't wanna hear it. I don't wanna hear it. I've already heard enough. Only I don't think you've heard me. You know what the worst thing about this whole thing is, Ridge? Is that the kids and I, we were sitting here believing that the choice had been made. And we were living in this house because we thought you wanted us to be here.

Ridge: You just need to give me a little more time.

Taylor: No, no. No, I'm not giving you any more time. I'm done. I can't do it anymore. I won't do it anymore.


Dante: I'm really happy for you. Not that it isn't bittersweet for me.

Bridget: I don't know what I would have done without you. Thank you so much for being my friend.

Dante: Always.

Bridget: Now I get to go tell Nick I'm having his child.

Dante: He's a very lucky man.

Bridget: I just hope he'll forgive me after everything I've put him through.

Dante: He will.

Bridget: I should have trusted him. I should have trusted both of them.

Dante: You had to test him, to make sure. Now you know.

Bridget: They said there were feelings there, but they didn't act on them.

[ Bridget sighs ] I just thank god this ridiculous test is over. I never should have done it.


Brooke: I should have seen this before. Why didn't I see this before? I was so certain. I was so committed to a man that I couldn't see past him. I was struggling to make a life with him, but not once did I stop and ask myself, if I had to try so hard, why was I doing it? Why? Did he ever truly love me? Did he ever really make me happy? I just kept going along with it, like it was all a part of some great big master plan. And it wasn't until now -- till right now that it's all starting to make sense. Maybe I wasn't meant to be with ridge after all. Maybe that isn't my destiny. It's been someone else. Bridget knew that. She saw that before we did.

Nick: Your daughter!

Brooke: No, I know. I know, and that's why I had to deny my feelings for you. I had no other choice. But when I was with you -- when we were together at the hospital with hope and at my house, I felt a man that I was more in tune than any man ever. And Bridget saw that. But I fought it. I -- I fought it, and I -- I wouldn't allow myself.

Nick: We both fought it.

Brooke: Yes, because you were engaged to my daughter, and I wasn't going to cross that line till the day that I died.

Nick: We denied -- we denied our feelings for each other all along.

Brooke: Yes, I know.

Nick: To protect Bridget.

Brooke: Yes.

Nick: To spare her. To spare Bridget and to spare the child. But it didn't work out. No one was spared. Not Bridget, not the child.

Brooke: I know, I know. And that was a tragedy that never should have happened. But Nick, out of that came light, clarity. The man that I'm supposed to be with, that's you. That's you. It's not Ridge, it's you. It's you, Nick. It's you. Oh, god. Oh, god, it's you.
