Bridget: Are you forgetting, Taylor, that you're a you're engaged to Thorne.
Nick: Bridget, you don't know what you're talking about.
Bridget: I think I do, Nick. I'm pretty sure that I know what I saw.
Bridget: Are you forgetting, Taylor, that you're a professional? You're engaged to Thorne.
Nick: Bridget, you don't know what you're talking about.
Bridget: I think I do, Nick. I'm pretty sure that I know what I saw, and I know what I'm seeing. I mean, my goodness, you took my family's company, and now you're moving on to Taylor. Is that really the kind of man that you've become? You're just that obsessed with revenge that you'll cross any line?
Pamela: This is my sister's house. She bathes in that tub. For you to use it to seduce her husband is indecent and immoral.
Jackie: Oh, God, as if I care what you think, you drab little partridge!
Eric: What is going on here?
Jackie: Oh, Eric, thank God you're here. Your sister-in-law, she has just gone completely off the deep end.
Pamela: I'm doing what Stephanie asked me to do.
Eric: Yes, and a bang-up job of it, too.
Pamela: Thank you.
Eric: Pam, Jackie's my friend.
Pamela: Eric, forgive me, but you're a married man, and she was upstairs naked in the tub. I know this is Los Angeles and not lake forest, but still, it's wrong. Do you disagree with me?
Eric: Pam, would you give Jackie and me a moment together?
Hope: I win!
Ridge: Hey, who's side are you on?
Brooke: Oh, Daddy Ridge is a sore loser.
Ridge: Am not.
Hope: Are too!
Ridge: Am not!
Hope: Are too!
Ridge: Am not!
Brooke: Are too!
Ridge: Am not!
Brooke: Are too!
Ridge: Am not, am not, am not!
Brooke: Are too, are too, are too -- I heard something. The doorbell!
Hope: I'll get it.
Brooke: Okay, I'll come, I'll help you.
Announcer: The role of Rick Forrester is now being played by Kyle Lowder.
Rick: Hey, there, good looking! Remember me?
Rick: Come here. How you doing, honey?
Brooke: Oh, sweetheart! Oh, my gosh, what a surprise!
Rick: Hey, Mom.
Rick: Well, maybe not, when you find out why I'm actually here.
Nick: Bridget, calm down.
Brooke: No, Nick, why should I calm down? So you can tell me that I'm wrong?
Nick: Well, you are wrong.
Bridget: I'm not wrong. I know what I saw. I didn't imagine you were in Taylor's arms.
Taylor: No, no, but maybe given your history with Nick, don't you think maybe you might be feeling --
Bridget: What, Taylor, that maybe I'm jealous? I don't know. Maybe I am. Although, I think I probably should have learned by now, after all the pain you put me through with my mother. And to see you here now with Taylor? I think I thought I was really over you. I can't believe I've just been lying to myself. The man that I fell in love with and the man that I married -- I think I just -- I wanted you back. That man doesn't even exist anymore, Nick. The man that I fell in love with would never do the things that you've been doing. You've been lashing out at my family. And you took my father's life's work. You took it away from him. I'm so stupid, I even defended you to my dad. I guess I just loved you that much. Now, to see you two here together --
Taylor: Bridget --
Bridget: No, Taylor -- no! I'm not going to hear that therapy is what brought you two closer. That is not what's going on, and you know it. I'm sure that whatever that you went through, Nick, as a child, was very traumatic, and you suffered a great deal. But I'm pretty sure what Ally is going through is a whole lot worse. You know, that is what makes this so unbelievable, the two of you here like this. Even if nothing is going on yet, Nick, you know you're playing with fire. And it's Thorne and Ally that are going to get burned. I really don't know how much more they're supposed to take. I don't know how much loss one heart is supposed to endure. This is going to end. Whatever this is, it's going to end right here and right now. No more meetings, no more sessions. Thorne and Ally are going to come first, Taylor. Otherwise, what you two are doing, it's just cruel. And I'll never be able to think of you as that. Either one of you. No matter how upset I get at you.
Nick: Bridget -- thank you.
Bridget: Well, thank you. I think I finally have what I've been needing to let go of you and move on. It's what I intend to do.
Jackie: Oh, the nerve of that woman! Ruining our evening with her sanctimonious drivel.
Eric: Jackie, Jackie, Pamela thought she was protecting my virtue.
Jackie: Your virtue doesn't need protecting. It's need to be exposed. You've been deprived for too long.
Eric: So this was a mission of mercy?
Jackie: Ha, ha. Someone has to remind you what it's like to be with a real woman. Oh, Eric -- why do you keep wasting time with Stephanie? When you know that we could be so happy together?
Pamela: Don't even think about it.
Jackie: I hate her.
Ridge: The kids were so excited to have you back, we could hardly get them to bed.
Rick: Well, I'll go up in a few and read them a bedtime story.
Ridge: Another beer?
Brooke: Or something to eat?
Rick: No, thank you, I'm okay.
Brooke: But you're not okay, honey. You've had to pack up your apartment in Paris and leave a job at Forrester international that you invested so much of yourself in.
Ridge: We all know who you have to thank for that. The sailor turned wannabe fashion mogul, Popeye Marone.
Rick: I don't think he's solely responsible for the loss of Forrester Creations. I mean, if we're pointing fingers here, Ridge, why look any further than you and Stephanie?
Taylor: How is it Bridget manages to help us see what might have taken weeks of therapy to realize? Maybe I just didn't want to see it. But I knew. The truth is, I -- I've known my feelings for you aren't just that of a doctor for a patient, or a friend, for that matter. I'm attracted to you. Which I've been denying, because --
Nick: But your heart's in the right place, just like Bridget's. You're trying to do the right thing for Thorne and his little girl. I know that. But let me say that it's very easy to fall for someone so selfless and beautiful. But like they say, timing's everything. And I think we know this can't happen. I guess I've known that all along, which sort of makes me the bad guy here, I know.
Taylor: You're not the bad guy. There are no bad guys here. I know you were -- you were coming from a place of caring when you were telling me that I might be making a mistake marrying Thorne, and doing it out of guilt. I know that.
Nick: I'm still not sure you aren't.
Taylor: All I can say is, there is real love there. And I have to do what I believe is right. But I also can't stand here and deny that I've been developing feelings for you. I know something's there. It happens every time I'm around you.
Nick: Well, I guess some things just weren't meant to be.
Taylor: I'll always cherish our friendship.
Nick: You are a very special woman. I just hope Thorne knows what he's got here.
Pamela: I honestly don't know what got into me. I have never behaved that way in my life.
Eric: Pam, it's okay. It's okay. No blood was shed. Everyone's okay, so --
Pamela: Still, when Stephanie asked me to keep an eye out, I had no idea --
Eric: The most important thing to me is your concern. I really appreciate it.
Pamela: Thanks. What about you and Steph? I mean, are things going to be okay when she gets back?
Eric: I don't know, Pam. I honestly don't know. I do know, though, that this time you've spent here with me, has been a real tonic.
Ridge: For the record, nick's been waging war on our family ever since he felt your mother slipping away from him and back to me.
Rick: But it wouldn't have gotten so ugly if Stephanie hadn't shoved Jackie over the banister.
Ridge: The woman provoked her.
Rick: You and Stephanie provoked Nick by exposing his mother's past to the world.
Ridge: Oh, don't you think you're being a little naive here, just expecting us to sit back and take what Marone dishes out without a fight?
Rick: I'm not saying you don't fight back, it's how you've gone about it.
Brooke: Honey, we understand what you're saying. It's just -- we can't do anything about it now. All we can do is make this company a success. And we can do that, with your help. Right, Ridge?
Bridget: Oh, my gosh, Rick! I don't believe it!
Rick: Hey, sis, believe it. Big brother in the house.
Bridget: Oh, it's so good to see you.
Rick: You, too. How are you doing? God, look at you. You look amazing. You got a new man in your life, or what's going on?
Bridget: Well, no, but, you know, for the first time in a very long time, I'm open to the possibility. And it feels so good!
Rick: Awesome. Come here, give me a hug.
( Classical music playing )
Pamela: I was afraid you might send me packing.
Eric: No, no. And leave me vulnerable to Jackie's feminine wiles? Never. There is something I want to say to you, though. Stephanie's been with your mother for, what, two weeks now? But you -- you were there with Ann for 30 years. And nobody in this family has really given you credit for the sacrifice you made. I mean, you gave up -- you virtually gave up your whole life to take care of Ann, with no help from anybody. Certainly not from your sister. You know what the real surprise has been for me? That you have no resentment. And you have every right to, but you don't. You're this sweet, wonderful, selfless woman. You will always have a place in this family. Goodnight.
Rick: Let me guess, Budge got paged, she had to run off?
Brooke: Oh, yeah, she said she'd catch up with you tomorrow.
Rick: Okay. Where's Ridge?
Brooke: Ridge thought that you and I could use some quality time alone.
Rick: You're sure that's the only reason? I did push his buttons before.
Brooke: Did you mean to?
Rick: I was just saying what I felt.
Brooke: Or was there something more?
Rick: You don't want to hear it.
Brooke: Of course I do, you're my son. Whatever's going on with you, I want to know.
Rick: Okay, there is more. Like what's going on with you and your fiancé, and this "Happily ever after" that you think you're going to get this time?
Brooke: I am, because this time it's different.
Rick: How do you know that?
Brooke: Because I know what's in my heart, what's always been in my heart, where Ridge is concerned. He's --
Rick: He's the love of your life, I know. So, what happened to Nick? I thought you two had something special.
Brooke: Yes, we did.
Rick: Okay, so, what happened? You never told me that story.
Brooke: It's complicated.
Rick: Complicated? How is it complicated? Like, ridge-got-involved-and-ruined- the-whole-thing complicated, or what?
Brooke: Oh, no, no, it was nothing like that.
Rick: Okay, so why not give Nick another shot?
Brooke: Because I am committed to Ridge, and this time it's going to be forever.
Rick: Oh, God! Mom, how many times are you going to tell that to me?
Brooke: Rick --
Rick: Oh, I'm sorry. Mom -- oh, man. I'm sorry, Mom. Can't you see, I just want to be happy for you so badly, I do. God knows you deserved it after everything you've been through. It's just that Ridge doesn't change. He says he does. He makes all the right promises, but he keeps disappointing you over and over again. Like when he walked out on you and R.J. when he left you for Taylor. What makes you think that that's not going to happen again? Why do you believe that you and Stephanie are not going to do battle again -- okay, you're on her good side. For now, for the moment, yeah. But you know Stephanie. You do one thing that she doesn't approve of, and she turns on you in a second. Mom, you've got this blade just hanging over your head, and it's going to fall. It always falls with you and Ridge. And you say that that's not going to happen again this time. And God, I hope you're right. I really do. 'Cause, mom, the bottom line -- I just don't want to see you get hurt again. I really don't. And if I see it start to happen, well, then, Ridge is just going to have to answer to me. Okay?
