Ashley: You actually believe that Ridge killed Shane McGrath? I mean, come on.
Nick: It might've been self-defense --
Ashley: And then he deliberately worked it out so it looks like you did it? I mean, what kind of person would do such a thing?
Nick: You're getting involved with him. I thought you might want to know.
Taylor: Of course, Nick is trying to clear his name -- he didn't do it. I don't even know why this bothers you.
Stephanie: Because he's trying to throw the suspicion on innocent people.
Taylor: All he knows is he didn't do it. Stephanie, I really want to ask you something. Do you honestly believe that Nick would kill that boy?
Stephanie: Well, does he think that Ridge would take one of his shirts and put Shane's blood all over it?
Taylor: Oh, my God. Oh, my God. You really hate Nick so much, that you would be okay with him being convicted for something he didn't even do?
Stephanie: You don't even want to know what I think he deserves.
Shane: Look at me. No one cares about me. I got no job. No money. I got no family. No one's even going to care if I'm dead. Whether I live whether I die, nobody's even going to notice. So, to hell with everybody. I'm done.
Ridge: No, Shane! Shane!
Ridge: Phoebe, what are you doing here at this hour?
Phoebe: Looking for you, actually.
Ridge: Well, I had a dinner thing, and then I didn't get the chance to finish up around here.
Phoebe: Dad, I think I said the wrong thing to the wrong person.
Ridge: I do that all the time. What are you talking about?
Phoebe: When Nick wanted me to stop by to see him and mom. And I thought it was just going to be like, you know, a new big, happy family moment. And then, instead, he had all these questions to ask me.
Ridge: About what?
Phoebe: Shane. I mean, I guess I would be the same way if I was accused to murder and was innocent. I mean, I didn't really know where he was going, but now he thinks that you killed Shane and set him up.
Ashley: You know, you are just jumping too many crazy conclusions.
Nick: I'm only asking you if you saw Forrester at the office that night. It would have been after 7:00.
Ashley: This is nuts, okay? And your five minutes is officially up.
Nick: What if I told you the rest of my life depends on your answer?
Ashley: How am I supposed to know what time you're even talking about?
Nick: It was a couple of days before the body turned up. Forrester's big Rodeo opening. Stephanie told everybody to take off early that night. Now, I know that doesn't happen very often.
Ashley: Okay, I remember that night. And I was in the lab a little late. But you know what? The lab isn't even close to the administrative offices, so I wouldn't even know who was there or wasn't.
Nick: So, you don't know if Forrester was in the building?
Ashley: We had a date. I was killing time.
Nick: You had a date? Why wouldn't you mention that earlier? I'm sorry to bother you at this late hour with this. But you see, I got a new wife and a child on the way, and somebody's trying to take that from me. But if you say you were with Forrester --
Ashley: I didn't really say that. I never saw him.
Ridge: It shouldn't come to any surprise. Nick's going to say whatever he wants to say.
Phoebe: But not about you! He doesn't have that right.
Ridge: What could you say that he doesn't already know?
Phoebe: Well, I might have been the last person to see Shane alive, in this room.
Ridge: You were?
Phoebe: Remember when Shane called, and you took the phone from me and asked him to leave me alone? Well, that wasn't the end of it. Shane showed up when you left for a second. He showed up here.
Ridge: You didn't tell me that.
Phoebe: I didn't want anyone freaking out more than they already had. I know how to talk to him, so I just -- I got him to leave and I called security to make sure he couldn't get back in again. Now, Nick has this theory that Shane ran into you on his way out, or something --
Ridge: Sweetheart, none of this is your fault.
Phoebe: Well, if he tries to make something of it, I just didn't want you to think that I said more than I did.
Ridge: And I appreciate you telling me.
Ashley: We had a date, but something came up.
Nick: You couldn't make it, or he couldn't make it?
Ashley: He couldn't.
Nick: Did he say why?
Ashley: Yeah, a business emergency.
Nick: What kind of business emergency?
Ashley: I never talked to him. He wasn't in his office, so I called Stephanie.
Nick: And mommy comes into play. What kind of fashion emergency did she say it was?
Ashley: I didn't ask.
Nick: What about the office? Was anything out of place?
Ashley: I don't know. And his cell phone was on the desk. I know that, because I called it and it rang. And that's the kind of thing that somebody would do when they were in a hurry, right? So, I'm so sorry if that messes with your theory --
Nick: But you don't know what kind of hurry he was in.
Ashley: Talk about the police being so quick to judge you, don't be so quick to judge Ridge.
Nick: All right, he left the building early and didn't come back.
Ashley: I don't know when he left. I just know when he came back, he was in no condition to see me.
Taylor: You know, you ask me questions. And then I ask you a question and I don't get an answer.
Stephanie: Well, why make me say things to you that you're not going to want to hear about your husband?
Taylor: Why are you here?
Stephanie: Because I'm your friend. And because I am concerned about you being married do this man.
Taylor: Do you? Or do you not think Nick killed Shane McGrath?
Stephanie: Are you asking me who I think is more capable of committing murder, Ridge or Nick? Because if you are, you're not going to like the answer.
Taylor: Well, no, of course, no, Ridge could never have done that. And if it were Nick, it would have been your dead body washing up on the beach. In the meantime, my dear friend is over here, practically dancing on my husband's grave.
Stephanie: I am your friend. And I am here because I care.
Taylor: No, you can honestly care less if I'm left here pregnant and all alone, while my husband is serving a life sentence for a crime that you don't think he even committed! Thank you. At least you don't deny that.
Stephanie: But I do. I don't want anything terrible to happen to you.
Taylor: What happens to Nick happens to me. And I'll tell you something else. A friend like you I don't need. Look at all this room
Nick: What do you mean he was in "No condition?" What kind of condition was he in?
Ashley: I told you, okay, I never saw him.
Nick: Then how do you know he came back?
Ashley: Because I stopped by his office on my way home. Stephanie came to the door and said that he couldn't be interrupted.
Nick: You didn't want an explanation?
Ashley: She said he was on a call to Sydney.
Nick: Well, maybe he was changing out of his bloody clothes and you just accepted that!
Ashley: Please, give me a break, okay? I got my explanation the next day and I don't really want to discuss it with you!
Nick: Well, let's discuss this! Shane McGrath had one major obstacle between him and Phoebe. That was her father. That's why this showdown happened, only he took the bullet. Ridge bags the body, takes it out to my boat and dumps it overboard. And he makes sure all the evidence leads back to me. And then he counts on my mommy dearest to clean up all the loose ends.
Ashley: You know what? It's just not that complicated. Ridge asked me out on a date. He didn't realize at the time that it was too soon for him to be dating because this whole thing with Brooke just hit him really hard. That's why he broke our date. And that's why he couldn't explain himself. And that's why he was avoiding me. And that's why I am the wrong person to be talking to about where he was or he wasn't.
Nick: Thanks for your time. This is my cell phone in case you remember anything. By the way, Forrester losing Brooke is not an "explanation." It's just another reason for framing me. Be careful who you spend time with.
Stephanie: I have no use for Nick, you know that. Especially after everything that he's done to my family. I mean, I warned you about becoming involved with him. But that's over now, so -- look, I'm here because I'm trying to protect you from what I -- I see as an inevitable tragedy.
Taylor: No, you're standing on the sidelines rooting for him to go down. And thinking that somehow that's going to salvage our relationship. It doesn't even make sense.
[Cell phone rings]
Taylor: And it is not going to happen. You can show yourself out. Nick, where are you?
Nick: I'm on to something.
Taylor: On to what?
Nick: Ashley Abbott.
Nick: I got one more stop to make. I'll be home after that.
Taylor: I'll be here waiting.
Stephanie: Good news?
Taylor: Nick thinks so.
Stephanie: That lead he was following?
Taylor: I think you'll be very disappointed -- no, crushed. If he finds out who the killer is.
Ashley: What was that?
Stephanie: Oh, don't worry, it's not an earthquake. Actually, I think that was the freight elevator.
Ashley: That couldn't have been –
Nick: Hey, Forrester, I didn't know you'd be here. Well, don't mind me. Just looking around for bloodstains. Now that I know this is where it happened.
Taylor: Hey, there? I know you're there. Your father is going to be safe. You're going to be safe. Another woman gave you what I couldn't -- everything you need is going to come through me. You're going to be my precious little baby. You'll be safe. It's all going to be okay.
I have a sonogram. 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'd it go? Was it -- were you scared? Was it painful?
Taylor: It just took ten minutes. And it wasn't much. That's the ultrasound image. And 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.
Phoebe: There you are.
Phoebe: I went to see dad. I still can't believe Nick's doing this.
Taylor: Defending himself for a crime he didn't commit?
Phoebe: That doesn't make dad guilty. Mom, I mean, I know this is really hard for you.
Taylor: Listen, he just wants the truth, honey.
Phoebe: Yeah, but okay, I want to believe that, too. But why does he have to point the finger at dad? I mean, if dad shot Shane in the office building, don't you think someone would have heard?
Stephanie: I hope I didn't wake your little girl.
Ashley: No, I hope not. I was just about to turn in myself, actually.
Stephanie: Well, I was just wondering how the evening was with Ridge.
Stephanie: No unwelcomed intrusions? Nick Marone, for instance?
Ashley: How did you know that?
Stephanie: Well, sometimes, desperate people do desperate things.
Stephanie: I suppose he was trying to elicit information from you.
Ashley: I told him I was the wrong person to talk to, since I never laid eyes on Shane. But Nick told me that Shane was actually in the building that night that -- you know, that night that my date with Ridge never really happened.
Stephanie: Did he ask you about that cancelled date?
Ashley: It wasn't really cancelled. I mean, it was a business emergency, that's what you said, so, that's what I told him.
Stephanie: Yes, that's right.
Ashley: There's something I was wondering about though. Maybe I should mention to Nick.
Stephanie: What -- wondering about what?
Ashley: Um, on the that same night, earlier, you and I were in the lab, and we heard that really loud noise. Remember that?
Ashley: Of course you do. You said it was the freight elevator.
Stephanie: Oh, yes.
Ashley: Have you ever heard that since? Because I haven't.
Stephanie: No, that you mention it, I don't think I have. They probably serviced the elevator. It probably needed it.
Ashley: It was a sharp sound.
Ashley: Yeah. It sounded like almost a gunshot.
Stephanie: Oh, not to me. It's probably just as why you didn't mention that to Nick though. The police may well have the right man. That's why he's desperate. I think he's going to keep dogging you too. So, I would suggest, if he shows up here again and wants to come in, just slam the door in his face.
Nick: Nothing to say, Forrester?
Ridge: So, where are all those bloodstains you were talking about?
Nick: Why don't we start by checking your hands? Oh, but I guess mommy's already cleaned those up, hasn't she? I know you had plans with Ashley Abbott, you cancelled. And I'm thinking you went out and murdered somebody. And mommy showed you how to frame me for it.
Ridge: Nick, you're in way too deep. I'm not going to help you get out of it.
Nick: I don't need your help, Forrester. Because you and your old lady have already made mistakes. And I'm going to prove to everybody how sick and twisted you two really are. And guess what, I'm half-way there. Somebody's going to go down hard for this, Forrester. It's not going to be me.
