Nick: I didn't shoot Shane McGrath!
Lt. Baker: Yeah, so you're innocent just like everybody else in this place.
Nick: And all you're doing is taking Stephanie Forrester's word for this.
Lt. Baker: The restraining order was filed.
Nick: She invited me to the house, because she's panicking. She's knows I'm on to her, and that dressmaker son of hers.
Lt. Baker: Complaints against the Forresters will not help your case.
Nick: You're just her little Gestapo, aren't you?
Lt. Baker: You're charged with murder! You keep mouthin' off, and it's back to lock up, nobody to talk to but your cellmates. And those guys would love to hear your little stories.
Storm: Storm why are you holding my client?
Lt. Baker: Nicky-boy here violated the restraining order filed against him. Signed for by his wife.
Taylor: Nick had already left the house. I didn't even know what I was signing.
Lt. Baker: Explain it to the judge.
Taylor: No -- Stephanie called him. She invited him to her house. She lured him there!
Lt. Baker: Ten minutes.
Nick: It's okay.
Taylor: How can you say that?
Nick: Forrester killed McGrath, and Stephanie's covering it up. They're guilty, and this restraining order proves it.
Phoebe: My dad did not murder Shane! And whoever says he did is a liar.
Brooke: Ridge would never kill anybody. I know that.
Phoebe: I know, but Nick keeps saying that he did. I mean, it's terrible that he's going to jail, especially since he and my mom are having -- look, whoever killed Shane should be punished. I mean, send them away for good for what they did, but it's wrong for Nick to blame my dad.
Brooke: Of course it's wrong. He's just scared.
Phoebe: So he points the finger at my father?
Brooke: The police are going to have to figure out what happened. God knows what kind of trouble Shane got himself into. Maybe he owed people money. And if they followed him to the Marlin --
Phoebe: You mean, when I was there?
Brooke: Look, I don't mean to scare you, but it is possible that that's when Shane got killed. And maybe, that's when the blood ended up on Nick's shirt.
Phoebe: But Nick's blaming my dad. I mean, can you talk to him, and ask him to stop spreading lies?
Brooke: Maybe there is something I could do.
[Cell phone rings]
Storm: Excuse me. Hello?
Brooke: Hi. It's me. Could you come over as soon as possible?
Storm: Hey, sis -- I don't think so. Now's not a good time.
Brooke: Please? It's about Nick. I wouldn't ask you if it weren't important.
Storm: All right. I'll see what I can do. Bye. Well, that was Brooke. She said she had something important to talk to me about regarding you.
Nick: She know I'm in here?
Storm: I don't think so. Well she will soon enough.
Nick: Check it out. Maybe she knows something.
Storm: See you in a bit.
Nick: Thanks. We've got to get Stephanie to tip her hand, somehow. When she does, I'm going to make sure she hangs.
Nick: You called them while I was on my way, didn't you?
Stephanie: I'm so relieved. I don't know what he might've done.
Nick: I know what you did. I'm going to prove what you did, and you will go down for it! You'll go down!
[Knock on the door]
Stephanie: Ms. Tartaro. How nice to see you. Please come in.
Tartaro: Thank you.
Stephanie: I appreciate you coming over. I mean, I can't even begin to imagine how busy it must be down at the district attorney's office, but -- there's something that really -- well, it's very urgent. I need to talk to you about it.
Stephanie: I was delighted to see you at that luncheon last week.
Tartaro: I'm so busy at the D.A.'s office. I don't often have the opportunity to go to lunch. It was very nice.
Stephanie: It was. Such a good cause. It was great to raise so much money.
Tartaro: Yes, it was. Now, do you want to tell me what this visit is really about, Mrs. Forrester?
Stephanie: I like a direct woman. Justice is a funny thing.
Tartaro: Should I be taking notes?
Stephanie: Oh, I don't know. Maybe you should. I mean, I hope I'm not treading on improper grounds, here.
Tartaro: Is this a legal matter?
Stephanie: Well, it has to do with Dominick Marone. You know, he's a violent man. He broke into my home, and I had to have a restraining order taken on him. This man has to be dealt with.
Nick: Why else file a restraining order, and then invite me over? Because she's desperate. Because she's knows I'm on to her and that dressmaker, and you know I'm right.
Taylor: Yeah, I know. I do. It's just that -- I can't believe Ridge would actually kill somebody. You know, Nick, I -- I've known him a long time. I have to wonder if there wasn't some kind of struggle, some kind of confrontation? And, I don't know, I just don't want to believe that Stephanie and Ridge could even do something like this.
Nick: We're having a child together, and they want to see me rot here. Now, maybe it was an accident, and if that's the case, they have got to confess.
Taylor: Oh, with Stephanie, that isn't going to happen.
Nick: Well, then what? Then, I go to jail? You have the kid with someone else? Rick Forrester.
Taylor: What about him?
Nick: Shane was killed at Forrester Originals. He has access. Call him. Get him over here. I need him to do some snooping around that building.
Phoebe: Mmm. I mean, Nick just won't leave anyone alone. I'm sure he didn't kill Shane, but he needs to stop saying my father did. What?
Rick: Um, Phoebe --
Phoebe: What? Do you think he's right?
Rick: Nick did not kill Shane --
Phoebe: But you think my father did? Based on what?
Rick: Phoebe, I don't want to fight about this. Please --
Phoebe: You can't accuse my father of murder, and say you don't want to fight about it, Rick. Why are you saying this?
Rick: Okay. Ashley was here the night that Shane tracked you down. She was supposed to have a date with your date, and he stood her up. He never showed.
Rick: And, she heard a noise that sounded like a gunshot. Phoebe --
Rick: No, Phoebe, you need to hear this.
Phoebe: No, you didn't come to the studio with me to listen to Ashley's theories about a noise she heard?
Rick: She was just trying to help --
Phoebe: Stop. Stop.
Brooke: Oh, hey.
Brooke: Thanks for getting here so quickly.
Storm: Well, of course. You said was important. Something about Nick.
Brooke: It's Phoebe. Nick has her really upset.
Storm: Well, the guy has been charged with murder. You can't expect him to just sit back and take the fall.
Brooke: I don't think he killed Shane McGrath, but he shouldn't go around saying that Ridge did it.
Storm: Brooke, I was with Nick when he called. He's been arrested again.
Storm: Stephanie filed a restraining order against him, and then invited him over to the house.
Storm: You know what, I've been in this legal profession a long time. I've seen what can happen -- people get defensive, angry, and desperate -- and one day, someone who never had it in them, someone good, commits a terrible crime. Ridge has had a tough couple of months, and now he's got this guy, Shane, a low- life, who's hassling his daughter --
Brooke: But to commit murder?
Storm: Brooke, Nick is behind bars as we speak. Why would Stephanie file a restraining against Nick, without him knowing about it, and then invite him over to the house? Now, Nick's bail has been revoked, and Ridge is conveniently in Paris. Look, I know it's hard for you to hear -- the fact that you and Ridge have a son together -- but there's no doubt in my mind Brooke. Ridge killed Shane McGrath.
Phoebe: How can you blame my father? Nick didn't do it, fine, but that does not mean that my father did.
Rick: Phoebe, Ashley heard this noise --
Phoebe: Rick! My dad stood her up on a date, so what? She heard a noise? My dad did not murder Shane, and I don't ever want to hear you say he did again.
[Cell phone rings]
Rick: Rick Forrester.
Taylor: Rick, it's Taylor.
Taylor: Listen, can you come up to the police station as soon as possible?
Rick: Yeah, okay, but what's up?
Taylor: It's Nick. He really needs your help.
Brooke: Ridge killed Shane?
Storm: McGrath showed up at Forrester Originals a couple of nights before he washed up dead on the beach.
Brooke: He was there seeing Phoebe.
Storm: Actually, he was there bothering Phoebe. She asked him to leave, but no one knows for certain that he did.
Brooke: What do you think happened?
Storm: I think that Ridge and Shane got into a confrontation. Shane was shot, exactly how, nobody knows. Ridge had to cover it up, and he and Stephanie saw an opportunity to frame Nick.
Brooke: By dumping Shane's body over Nick's boat? C'mon, you don't believe that.
Storm: Actually, I do. And so does Taylor.
Storm: She went to confront Stephanie. And I really believe that Taylor knows how to read Stephanie. They've known each other for so long.
Brooke: I've known Stephanie for a long time, too, and Ridge.
Storm: I know, but you can't even get a hold of Ridge, because he's somewhere in Paris.
Brooke: On business.
Storm: C'mon Brooke, do you really think that Ridge would suddenly jet off to Paris out of the blue? Nick is behind bars for killing the man who was harassing his daughter.
Brooke: Shane was homeless. There's no telling who he might have been in trouble with.
Storm: I know this is hard for you to believe, and you know what, maybe you don't want to believe it. Okay, you know what, why don't you go see Stephanie. If there's anyone that can see through that woman, it's you. Nick's in real trouble, Brooke. I'm trying to put together a case, but it's shallow. Now, if you can get a confession from Stephanie, you might be able to help nick. That could be his only chance. You have to get a confession from Stephanie.
Tartaro: I can't discuss this with you.
Stephanie: Oh -- but you've been assigned to the case, haven't you?
Tartaro: Yes, but that's a matter of public record.
Stephanie: Well, are you aware that Storm Logan is going to represent Mr. Marone? You know, he's an excellent attorney.
Tartaro: I know only too well.
Stephanie: My point exactly. I don't want storm getting him off on some technicalities, and released on bail, I mean, when I could be his next victim. He should come to trial as quickly as possible, for everyone's benefit. I'd like it if he could come to trial immediately.
Tartaro: That all depends on the judge's calendar, Mrs. Forrester. I don't make those decisions.
Stephanie: But you could ask for the first available date, couldn't you?
Tartaro: It's really up to the judge, Mrs. Forrester. And, I do have to get back to the office.
Stephanie: Of course. Thank you. Thank you for listening to a frightened citizen.
Tartaro: I was quite happy to.
Rick: What happened? I thought Nick was out on bail.
Taylor: No, no, no. C'mon, he's inside. He'll explain everything to you.
Guard: Hold on. Only one visitor at a time -- unless he's an attorney.
Taylor: Go on in.
Guard: Keep it brief.
Rick: All right, I'm here.
Nick: Thanks. Sit down. Look, I'm going to put you in a tough spot, but I'm a little helpless stuck in here.
Rick: Like I said, I'm here.
Nick: I think Ridge shot McGrath at Forrester Originals, then carried the body to my boat. Him and his old lady are setting me up. I've got some people looking for witnesses down at the marina, but I can't guarantee that's going to pan out. You work at Forrester Originals. You have access. I need your help.
Stephanie: Well, obviously, you're still on your way over there. As soon as you get to the hotel, call me. I want to talk to you. I want to make sure that we're on the same page, okay? Uh, I'll call back.
Brooke: Then it's true? Ridge really has gone to Paris?
Stephanie: Well, we have a business to run.
Brooke: I'm just surprised he left without saying good-bye to his son.
Nick: I wouldn't be asking you to get involved in this if first off, I didn't trust you. And secondly, I really need your help.
Rick: You really believe that Ridge killed McGrath?
Nick: He did it.
Rick: Wow -- there's something you should know, nick. Ashley confided something to me.
Nick: Ashley Abbott?
Rick: Yeah, we go back a long way.
Nick: Go on.
Rick: The night that Shane went to Forrester Originals to see Phoebe, Ridge and Ashley were supposed to have a date, but he stood her up. He never showed. He didn't even call to cancel.
Nick: No, I know all of this.
Rick: No, listen -- there's more. Ashley was in the lab, she was getting ready for the date, and Stephanie showed up. They started talking, and they heard a noise.
Nick: What kind of noise?
Rick: Neither of them knew. Stephanie thought it was the freight elevator. Ashley thought it sounded more like a -- like a gunshot.
Nick: Gunshot -- son of a bitch shot him.
[Nick pounds desk] He shot him. He shot him, in the office, and his old lady's framing me for it! Look, I know this puts you in a tough spot. Forrester is Phoebe's old man, but that evidence is there. It's there, in the building, in that office. Will you help me?
Stephanie: Well, I'm sure Ridge would've gone over to the house to say good- bye to R.J. maybe he wasn't home? Did he have a play day? Why are you looking at me like that? Wait a minute. Who are you more worried about -- your son, or Nick?
Brooke: I'm worried about a lot of people. Why did you have Nick arrested?
Stephanie: He violated the restraining order.
Brooke: You invited him over to your house. You set him up.
Stephanie: You --
Brooke: What is going on?
Stephanie: You know, I -- look, I spoke to the district attorney. They know he's a dangerous man. And you know, he shouldn't be casting suspicion on innocent people. He should just be taking care of his own -- his own defense. Oh, you don't think nick is a man that's capable of committing murder?
Brooke: No, he isn't.
Stephanie: And Ridge is?
Brooke: No. I talked to my brother. Nick believes that Ridge did it. And Storm thinks he's right.
Stephanie: Well, that's ridiculous.
Brooke: Look, if there was some kind of accident -- I'd like to help.
Stephanie: You know Ridge. He's not capable of killing somebody in cold blood.
Brooke: I'm not accusing Ridge. I know he wouldn't kill Shane. But what about you?
Stephanie: Me? Did you kill Shane?
Brooke: Okay. Why would you file a restraining order on Nick, and then invite him over?
Stephanie: I'm concerned about my safety.
Brooke: So, Nick and Storm are lying?
Stephanie: Yes. Yes. So, if you'll excuse me, you know your way out.
Stephanie: It's always your voicemail, Ridge. Listen, stay where you are. Do you understand? Just stay where you are, and trust me -- as a matter of fact, I don't think you should even call me --
Brooke: Did he do it? Did Ridge kill Shane McGrath?
