Phoebe: In vitro fertilization? Isn't that complicated, like hormone shots?
Taylor: I know, I know. I wish we could do it the old-fashioned way, but that isn't possible.
Phoebe: So, you're using a donor?
Taylor: Yes, I've been looking at the profiles on the computer.
Phoebe: Like a catalogue of moms?
Taylor: Well, I would be the mother. I'd still be the one getting pregnant and giving birth. And then Nick can finally have a child of his own.
Nick: Hey, what's going on?
Taylor: Oh, your ears must be burning. We were just talking about you. I was telling Phoebe about the plan that we were working on.
Phoebe: You can count on me to baby-sit.
Nick: Oh, well, thank you. There you go. He's got his first baby-sitter.
Taylor: Did you hear that? He can't get it through his head it might be a girl.
Phoebe: Well, in vitro, you can have one of each. Lucky for you, I charge by the hour and not by the kid.
Nick: Lucky for us is right.
Phoebe: Bye, Mom.
Nick: See you, Phoebe.
Phoebe: I love you.
Taylor: I love you too.
Taylor: You okay?
Taylor: You seem a little distracted.
Nick: Oh, just a weird day.
Taylor: Come here, I have something that will cheer you right up.
Nick: I'll take it.
Taylor: Look at my computer.
Taylor: I have been looking at this catalogue of donors.
Nick: Lists already. You're not wasting any time, are ya?
Taylor: Hmm-mm. The sooner we find a donor, the sooner we can have our baby.
Rick: Mom wants to have another kid, with Nick?
Bridget: Yes. And I can't go into all the details right now, but what I can say is that mom is absolutely convinced that Taylor can't have children with him.
Rick: Is that true?
Bridget: I would rather not say. Besides, the issue isn't Taylor having a baby. The issue is mom. She thinks it's some sort of a sign that if Taylor can't have children with Nick and mom can, then she's supposed to be the one with Nick.
Rick: Okay, well, maybe that is a sign.
Bridget: Rick! Rick! No, listen, this is not what's good for mom right now. I need you to back me on this!
Rick: Bridget --
Brooke: What are you doing here?
Rick: Uh, Bridget called me here.
Brooke: Oh, let me guess, she wanted you to talk some sense into me.
Bridget: Well, Mother, I'm a little worried about you.
Brooke: The test results weren't good?
Bridget: No, mom, the extensive testing that you required came back. The results show that you have -- well, it's totally okay to have a baby with Nick.
Brooke: Well, it doesn't really matter, because Nick doesn't want to have a baby with me. He doesn't want to have a life with me.
Bridget: Mom, but -- so you talked to Nick about this? You confronted Nick with Taylor's fertility issues?
Brooke: I waited too long. It's too late. Nick has moved on.
Ashley: Okay. Okay, stop. Not that I wasn't enjoying that. Because I was enjoying that. But you've been down this road before, all right?
Ridge: I'm sorry.
Ashley: Don't apologize. You can kiss me as much as you want. You know what I mean. Well, it's not gonna help you forget if, you know?
Ridge: Who says I'm trying to forget anything?
Ashley: Oh, come on. Isn't that the reason why you asked me out last night? You're trying to get over Brooke. And then you didn't even show up. But that was the whole idea, right?
[Gunshot] I understand that we don't really know each other that well. But I'd like to be your friend. I can tell you're going though something. Maybe you'd like to open up to me? I'd like to help.
Brooke: So, Nick wants to have his baby with Taylor.
Bridget: In vitro fertilization?
Brooke: With an egg donor.
Rick: Sounds like a lot to go through.
Brooke: Yes, it is.
Bridget: So, he's really committed to her, mom.
Brooke: I took him for granted. I had a life with him, and I let it go. Now, I can't get it back.
Rick: Is there anything we can do for you, mom?
Brooke: No, honey. I mean, I -- I don't even know what I'm gonna do for myself. I quit my job, and I put myself through all these tests. I really thought that I could prove to Nick that I would be there for him. I was so sure. But I guess I'll just do what I -- I've done before. I'll just be there for myself and my children.
Rick: You're just going to accept this?
Brooke: Yes, Rick, I have to accept this.
Bridget: Mom, I'm really proud of you for taking this well.
Brooke: What else can I do?
Nick: So, how do we go about this?
Taylor: We make the decision together. All right now, I want you to look at this profile that I've pulled up. I've got a few donors here.
Nick: Okay. Where are the pictures?
Taylor: There aren't any pictures. They're anonymous.
Nick: Well, how do we pick what we want?
Taylor: Look right here, okay. So -- see, they have physical descriptions. Hair color, eyes -- but really, I don't think that should be the main criterion.
Nick: Well, what is?
Taylor: I really think that we should look at family medical history, intelligence. I think that should come way above looks.
Nick: Well, I'd prefer her to be gorgeous with a rockin' body.
Taylor: You aren't going to be having sex with her. They do that in a petri dish, in the lab.
Nick: No sex? In a lab? Forget this.
Taylor: Will you be serious?
Nick: I am serious. I thought this was a whole sex --
Taylor: Mmm --
Nick: I'll just save my sex for you. I'm buzzing already.
[Nick laughs] It's Meriah, saying I'm late for a meeting. Would you continue to do your due diligence here and show me this when we get home later, okay?
Nick: Hurry home.
Taylor: Your rockin' body will be home waiting.
Ridge: You're right. I am going through something.
Ashley: So you can talk to me.
Ridge: I'm not gonna put this on you.
Ashley: Come on, it can't be that bad.
Ridge: It wasn't Brooke. That's not what I was thinking about when I kissed you.
Ashley: What were you thinking about?
Ridge: Nothing. Nothing. I wasn't thinking about anything. I just was enjoying being with you, enjoying your presence here, enjoying -- because that's what I really need right now, more than I can even say.
Ashley: You don't have to say anything.
Phoebe: Hi. I don't know what else to say.
Rick: Me either.
Phoebe: We already apologized.
Rick: I know. I -- I feel like I should do it again. You were right. You were right, and I was wrong. Nick is in love with your mother, not mine. And my mom knows that now, and she's not gonna cause any more problems.
[Knock at door]
Taylor: Come in. Brooke.
Brooke: Hello, Taylor.
Taylor: Let me guess. You called Nick's assistant, and she told you he was here. Sorry you missed him.
Brooke: I'm not looking for Nick. I'm here to see you.
Phoebe: Look, to be honest, I'm not worried about your mom anymore.
Rick: Is that because Nick and your mom are having a baby, IVF?
Phoebe: How do you know that?
Rick: My mom told me. It's actually the reason why she's giving up.
Phoebe: Is she okay?
Rick: She will be, yeah.
Phoebe: I'm sorry.
Rick: No, no. You should not be sorry, Phoebe. You should be happy. Because you're getting a new baby brother or sister, and that's a really great thing.
Phoebe: I've already offered my baby-sitting services.
Rick: Oh, great. So I guess I'm gonna have to spend as much time with you in the next nine months as possible, 'cause I'm not gonna see you again after that?
Phoebe: No. We've already spent too much time apart. I missed you.
Rick: I missed you, too.
Phoebe: I don't like arguing with you.
Rick: Neither do I. But it was our first fight, and it's a big step in our relationship.
Rick: Especially when you survive it.
Phoebe: Have we?
Rick: What do you think?
Brooke: I just want to talk.
Taylor: About Nick.
Brooke: And your plans for the baby in spite of your -- complications.
Taylor: My fertilization problems.
Brooke: Nick didn't tell me. I overheard.
Taylor: And so now, you think that gives you an opening?
Brooke: It gave me hope.
Taylor: And you're here to tell me that my relationship with Nick is doomed, because he really belongs with you.
Brooke: I should have realized how important it was for Nick to have a child.
Taylor: And that he was only with me because I was going to give him a child. You know, if you weren't so predictable, you'd be interesting.
Brooke: The hope was false, Taylor. I agree that everything you said went through my mind. When I found out that you couldn't have children, I saw an opening. At least I thought I did. When I found out nick agreed to having in vitro fertilization --
Taylor: He told you about that?
Brooke: He just wanted me to know how completely devoted he is to you. And I do. You can give him so much, Taylor, more than I can. He says that you've made him a better person.
Taylor: Why are you telling me this?
Brooke: I just want you to know that it is over between Nick and me. You've won. I will never be an issue in your relationship ever again.
Ashley: Feel any better?
Ridge: There isn't a pure thought in my head right now.
Ashley: I can work with that.
Ridge: Yeah? Do you think maybe we can reschedule tonight and maybe do that date?
Ashley: Yeah, now you're thinking. I like it.
[Knock at the door]
Lt. Baker: Excuse me, Ridge? I was told I could come right in. It's amazing how polite people get when you flash a badge.
Ashley: You're a policeman?
Lt. Baker: Yes, I'm Lieutenant Baker.
Ashley: Hi. Ashley Abbott.
Ridge: Ashley's developing a new fragrance line for our company.
Lt. Baker: Well, I assume you know why I'm here. I want to talk to you about Shane McGrath.
Rick: Phoebe, things are never gonna be simple with us, because of our parents and their relationships and divorces. And we can say that it won't affect us, but ultimately, it always will.
Phoebe: Are you trying to warn me about future fights or something?
Rick: I'm trying to tell you that it's going to be very difficult not to choose sides.
Phoebe: Okay. Well, I will be on your side, and you will be on mine.
Rick: I wish that I could promise you that.
Phoebe: I know.
Rick: We're always going to argue, okay? There are going to be fights in the future. Stuff comes up. But we always have to keep in mind that we're gonna get through it, just like we did this time.
Rick: You know what the best part about fighting is?
Phoebe: No, what?
Rick: Making up.
Taylor: You're here to tell me that you're giving up?
Brooke: Because I -- I just don't want you to worry about me anymore, Taylor. I know that this process, the IVF, it's very delicate. And if you have any stress or anxiety, then your chances of success are less. I really think that Nick wants this child, and I really believe that he deserves this child. I want him to be happy.
Taylor: We will be happy. Brooke, what about you?
Brooke: I don't know. I told Rick and Bridget not to worry about me, that I'd be fine. I'm not going back to Ridge, and I'm not working for Forrester Originals anymore. So I don't know.
Taylor: You will be fine. You will. You'll land on your feet. You always do.
Brooke: Thank you. Good luck.
Taylor: Thank you.
Lt. Baker: I understand McGrath has been harassing your daughter again?
Lt. Baker: It must be frustrating, a loser like him. You think he's out of the picture, then boom, he pops right back up again.
Lt. Baker: Which is why I'm here. It's about the restraining order. Your ex-wife didn't tell you?
Ridge: No, she didn't.
Lt. Baker: Well, I explained to her that she couldn't take out a restraining order on Phoebe's behalf, but if your daughter felt it was necessary, she could take out one herself. I take it that you haven't discussed this with them?
Ridge: No, lieutenant, I haven't.
Lt. Baker: Oh, probably just as well. A drifter like Shane, they hang around for awhile, then one day, just disappear.
Lt. Baker: Except Dr. Hayes wanted to send him a message. But I'm not even certain that he'll get it. Might even make him more persistent.
Lt. Baker: But then nick Marone stepped in, said he would handle the situation if the authorities didn't.
Ashley: That doesn't sound like a very good idea.
Lt. Baker: No, it's not. Which is why I wanted to assure you that my department is very aware of any potential threat. If Shane McGrath becomes a problem, you let us handle it.
Ridge: Thank you, Lieutenant. Like you said, it probably won't be necessary.
[Cell phone plays Beethoven ringtone]
Lt. Baker: Is that a phone?
Ashley: It's not mine.
Ridge: It's coming from over here.
Lt. Baker: What's the matter, Ridge? You look like you've seen a ghost.
