Nick: He called me a flight risk!
Storm: You're a rich man, Nick. You have access to a private jet, contacts all over the world, it wouldn't be that hard for you to disappear.
Nick: I don't want to disappear, because I'm not guilty. Now, I am being set up here. It's becoming clearer all the time. Get me out on bail!
Storm: All right, I'm gonna talk to the D.A., see if I can't work this out. [Knocks on the door] And you -- relax.
Taylor: You said they might need Nick's passport.
Storm: You're darn right they will.
Nick: What are you doing here? You just had this procedure. Don't you think you should be home in bed?
Taylor: I'm fine.
Nick: I'm sure the doctor said the last thing you need is stress right now.
Taylor: No, I'll be more stressed sitting at home waiting for you, wondering if you're okay. You're my husband. I need to be with you.
Phoebe: Nick didn't do this.
Rick: They found physical evidence on his boat.
Phoebe: Shane must've found out I was spending the night there and followed me. I mean, someone could have followed him.
Rick: Yeah, someone who's pretty damn shady to let Nick go down for a crime he didn't commit.
Ridge: I can't let Nick go to prison for this, mother.
Stephanie: He's not going to go to prison.
Ridge: You have more faith in the justice system than I do.
Stephanie: Well, if there was any real justice in this world, he'd already be in prison somewhere for something.
Ridge: You're probably right, but he doesn't deserve to be punished for Shane's death.
Stephanie: And neither do you.
[Knock on the door]
Ridge: Expecting someone?
Stephanie: No. Ashley --
Ashley: Hi. I called the office, they said you were here.
Stephanie: Come in.
Ashley: Have you seen this? I got it at the hotel newsstand. My thoughts went right to you.
Taylor: You know I married you for better or worse.
Nick: I just didn't expect it to get worse so fast.
Taylor: It will get better.
Nick: Nine months, right?
Nick: Do you know yet?
Taylor: All I know is I have not one, not two, but three embryos growing inside of me. I have a photograph from the ultrasound. Do you want to see it?
Nick: I would like to see it. Thank you. Please, come sit in my office. Tell me about it. How did it go? Was it -- were you scared? Was it painful?
Taylor: It just took ten minutes. You didn't miss much. That's the ultrasound image after they made sure all three babies were placed right where they belong.
Nick: What am I looking at?
Taylor: Our future. That's all you need to focus on. Not this mix-up, not about what you missed. Because in just a few days, we'll find out if I'm pregnant, and it won't matter anyway because you'll be out of here.
Phoebe: This is awful. I mean, especially for my mom. She and Nick are supposed to be starting a family.
Rick: Yeah, how is she holding up through all this?
Phoebe: I mean, she's trying not to worry 'cause even a little bit of stress is supposed to interfere with her chances of getting pregnant.
Madison: Guys --
Madison: Hi. This is Riley and Chris. They heard you guys singing the other night and they wanted to meet you.
Riley: You were really good.
Phoebe: Thank you.
Chris: Will you be signing again soon?
C.J.: Yeah, I was actually kind of wondering that myself.
Rick: Hey, C.J. How's it going?
C.J: Hey, Rick.
Madison: Okay, guys. Well, we don't want to interrupt. So, call me later, okay?
Phoebe: Yeah, yeah. It was nice meeting you.
Rick: Take care.
C.J.: Pretty crazy, huh?
Phoebe: It's not true.
C.J.: Still a little freaky though, don't you think? I remember the night that Shane guy came in here. I could tell he was making you upset. I was gonna come over and say something, but then your dad showed up and told him to get lost.
Phoebe: Yeah, well obviously he didn't. I mean, we think he followed me to the boat, and that's how Nick's getting in trouble.
C.J.: Well, look; I know you've got a lot to deal with, so I don't want to bother you guys. I kinda had a favor to ask, but I don't think now is the right time.
Rick: No, what? What can we do for you?
C.J.: All right, look. When you two were up on stage singing the other night, honestly, I was blown away. And, look, karaoke isn't bringing in the crowds like it used to, so I was wondering what you guys would think about being a regular act here. Look, just think about it, okay?
C.J: I'll be back.
Rick: A regular act, huh? I don't know. Two of us up on stage, making beautiful music together sounds kind of dangerous. I mean, you just might not be able to control yourself.
Taylor: Did you get bail?
Nick: Storm's working on it. I don't want to talk about that.
Taylor: When do you get out?
Nick: I want to talk about you, and I want to talk about this procedure you went through and how it went. I want to hear everything about it.
Taylor: I missed you.
Nick: I missed you.
Taylor: And Bridget was really sweet. She wanted you to know that she supports you, and everybody knows you didn't do this.
Nick: Everybody except the cops.
Taylor: What, they really think that you're the only one who could have possibly done this?
Nick: All the evidence is circumstantial.
Taylor: Well, that's what I don't understand, you know? How can they say that you are the one who's guilty when they don't really have any evidence? You know, I bought that boat used. There would be fingerprints all over the place. How could they possibly identify every single person who's been on that boat?
Nick: All I know is they got mine.
Taylor: As long as they don't find it on the murder weapon, then you're fine.
Nick: I can't really say they won’t.
Nick: Honey, I don't want to scare you, but I seriously think that somebody's planting evidence against me.
Taylor: Who -- who would try to set you up?
Nick: Well, you know with my history, not everyone finds me quite as charming as you do.
Stephanie: Well, I don't understand what this has to do with Ridge.
Ashley: What are you talking about -- the headline. "Fashion mogul arrested for murder." Lieutenant Baker was questioning Ridge about Shane McGrath. This must be so difficult for you. I mean, first Shane is stalking your daughter, then he's found dead and now it looks like your half brother may have committed the crime.
Stephanie: Well, Ridge and Nick aren't close.
Ashley: Well, still you must be concerned.
Ridge: I am.
Ashley: I only met Nick one time, but he doesn't seem like the type of person that would resort to murder. What would be his motive?
Stephanie: He's married to Taylor, and she took out a restraining order against Shane?
Ashley: I don't know. Just assuming that Shane attacked Nick, then it would be self defense. So, why cover-up a crime when there was no a crime? I just don't think he did it. I think the police have the wrong guy.
Guy: What's up, guys? You here for karaoke night, too? All right! Yeah. Hey, C.J., wait up. I want to tell you about some --
Phoebe: You're disappointed I didn't go to the hotel with you.
Rick: I thought driving up the coast would be a very romantic thing to do.
Phoebe: Just considering the timing, I didn't think it was a good idea.
Rick: Afraid you couldn't keep your hands off me?
Phoebe: We did agree to wait.
Rick: And we will.
Phoebe: If we keep putting ourselves in situations that we're tempted --
Rick: Phoebe, listen to me. I am always tempted. I am incredibly attracted to you all the time, not just when we're alone. But I know how to keep myself in check.
Phoebe: You feel like you have to hold back when you're with me?
Rick: No, no -- not at all. I love you. I love being with you -- whatever we're doing. Whether it's at work or here at a coffee shop. And it doesn't matter if other people are around, because all I see is you.
C.J.: Aw. Isn't that sweet? You know what would be even sweeter is if you guys took all that cute and cuddly and put it right up there on that stage. Come on, Rick, buddy -- I'm your oldest friend in the world. You've gotta help me out.
Rick: Okay, I want to, but it's up to the lady here. She's the one in charge.
Phoebe: Oh, man.
Ashley: Ridge, are you okay?
Stephanie: We're just all upset about this.
Ridge: It's just not right.
Ashley: You don't think he did it either?
Ridge: Nick might have stolen our company, he might be the reason I'm not with Brooke right now. But he doesn't deserve to go to prison for a crime he didn't commit.
Stephanie: Oh, please! He's no choir boy either. Don't let that business suit fool you either. For goodness sakes, the man spent his life at sea and around docks and people that slit your throat just as soon as look at you.
Ridge: Mother, come on.
Ashley: Maybe you just want to get away for a day or something? I don't have anything going on in the lab.
Stephanie: Oh, that's a wonderful idea. Why don't you take a ride up the coast, go to Santa Barbara? You're not going to gain anything by hanging around here. Go on, go. Make some plans, and for goodness sakes, find something else to talk about.
Taylor: You really think somebody is after you?
Nick: I shouldn't have mentioned this.
Taylor: No, I'm your wife. And I want to know what's going on.
Nick: Well, so do I, honey. But right now, all I've got are a couple theories.
Taylor: So you really think that somebody may have planted some evidence on the boat?
Nick: When I got to the boat, things were out of place. I just thought maybe Phoebe had moved some things around. And then I noticed that the anchor chain had been cut. I got out to the harbor, I -- damn it, the fuel line. If I checked the fuel gauge, I know if somebody used the boat.
Taylor: Do you know if anybody saw the boat leave before you did?
Nick: No, harbormaster only has record of my call.
Taylor: So, you radioed when you were leaving?
Nick: Exactly. Do you think I would have done that if I wanted to dump a body into the ocean?
Taylor: Nick, who would have done this to you?
Nick: Like I told you, I got some enemies.
Taylor: Yeah, what about some of the business decisions you made at Marone Industries?
Nick: Well, let's not forget the fashion industry. I have ruffled a few feathers since I've been there.
Taylor: You don't think -- are you saying you think maybe the Forresters had something to do with this?
Nick: Who would want revenge against me more than them?
Taylor: Yeah, but to kill Shane?
Nick: I'm not saying they did. I know two things for sure -- Shane's dead body was on my boat. And Ridge was there.
Taylor: Ridge? You don't think, Ridge would --
Storm: Nick made bail.
Taylor: Oh, thank God.
Storm: You're free to go. It was steep -- $1 million. And Jackie's arranging a bond right now.
Taylor: Should I go get the car? Do we have paperwork?
Nick: Come here -- hey, you. I want you to go home and get off your feet.
Taylor: What about you?
Nick: I got to make one little stop first.
Storm: Well, what ever you do, don't go by the boat. The marlin's a crime scene. I want you stay away from there, Nick. Nick, who are you calling?
Nick: You're home.
Nick: Stay there.
Stephanie: I hope you didn't waste your one phone call on me.
Stephanie: Thank you, Lieutenant. Yes, I knew you were the man to talk to about this. I appreciate it. Good-bye.
Ridge: What did Baker want?
Stephanie: I called him.
Stephanie: Well, I wanted to know if Nick was still in jail or if they'd posted bail. Because I have a feeling he's going to come over here.
Ridge: He knows something.
Stephanie: No, he does not.
Ridge: I'm sure as hell not going to leave you alone with that bastard coming over.
Stephanie: No, I want you to go with Ashley.
Ridge: Mother, I'll just tell her something else came up.
Stephanie: Don't do that to her. She's a nice girl. Look, he's full of hot air. I'll handle Nick.
Ridge: You know, you keep acting like I could actually get away with this. Maybe I don't want to get away with it.
Stephanie: I understand that. I just want to buy time. Please, focus on something else, l right -- Ashley for instance. I can see that she is interested in you.
Ridge: Well, my love life is not exactly a priority right now.
Stephanie: I realize that. But I want you to focus on something positive. I want you to stop thinking about this terrible mess with Shane.
Phoebe: I really want to help you out, C.J. my heart wouldn't be in it today.
C.J.: That's cool.
Phoebe: I'm sorry.
C.J.: No I understand, another time.
[Cell phone rings]
C.J.: I'll leave you two alone. Take care, Rick.
Rick: Bye, C.J.
Phoebe: It's my mom. Mom? What's going on? He did? Oh, good. Are you guys home? He's isn't, where -- but you're resting. You better be. Okay, okay, well, just call me if you need anything and I'll come right home. All right, I love you too.
Rick: Good news?
Phoebe: Nick made bail.
Rick: He did? So, he's home?
Phoebe: Well, not yet. Apparently, he had something to do first.
Rick: But he's out. That's good.
Phoebe: Well, he's not completely off the hook. I know lieutenant baker. He wouldn't have arrested him if he didn't really have a case against him.
Rick: Well listen, I know Nick very well. He's not going to let anybody put him away for a crime he didn't commit. He's going to fight this. He's going to fight it with everything he's got.
[Knock at the door]
Nick: You sure you want to do this? You sure you want to open the door to your house to a dangerous murder suspect?
Stephanie: Curiosity. I see you made bail. And you came all the way over here instead of going home to your lovely new wife, why?
Nick: Yeah, that's the question that keeps ringing in my mind, "Why? Why would anybody think that I shot Shane McGrath?" Well, I got three theories. One, he was following Phoebe. He went to the boat, only somebody was actually following him because he had enemies. There was an altercation and he was shot. Two, I'm being set up by somebody.
Stephanie: Oh. Three?
Nick: I'm looking at her.
Stephanie: Oh, you think I shot Shane, and I'm putting the blame on you?
Nick: Who hates me more than you do?
Stephanie: Let me think about that. Obviously somebody does, but I didn't shoot anyone.
Nick: You threatened to kill me before.
Stephanie: Leave, or they'll take you out of here in a body bag. Yes, after you broke my bedroom door down, and I would have too. I didn't shoot the boy.
Nick: You might not have pulled the trigger, but you know something.
Stephanie: Go home to your wife.
Nick: What do you know, Stephanie? Who did this? Who set me up?
