Bridget: Carl, what do you mean you know what happened to the eggs used in Taylor's procedure?
Carl: I know everything that happens in the lab, Dr. Forrester. Nobody notices me, but I'm always there. And I see things, like the night of Dr. Marone's in vitro fertilization. The donor's eggs, your mother's eggs. Nothing gets by me.
Phoebe: Who is she?
Rick: Phoebe, please. I don't want to talk --
Phoebe: I know things have been different since I broke up with you. You've been avoiding me, and now I know why.
Rick: I've been going through something that I can't talk to you about.
Phoebe: Just tell me the truth, Rick!
Rick: Phoebe, I am.
Phoebe: Is there someone else or not? That's all I'm asking you. Just tell me!
Rick: Yes. There was. There was someone else.
Phoebe: Are you in love with her?
Rick: No, Phoebe, please. That's not it. We broke up, and as much as I didn't want to believe it, I thought it was over. This is not an affair. I love you. And even when we broke up, I never stopped loving you. I know that sounds so lame, but it's true. Please. Please Phoebe, forgive me. Please forgive me.
Brooke: So you're feeling confident and happy. Secure in your relationship.
Taylor: Yeah, I am. Um-hmm.
Brooke: What if there's a problem later on?
Taylor: Are you planning on becoming a problem?
Brooke: No. But suspicions arise -- and like you said, what if you become uncomfortable with nick and I working together? And then I'm in a bad position.
Taylor: Okay, Brooke. Look, if you're not comfortable with it, then don't take the job. But I'm telling you that I'm not standing in the way.
Brooke: I believe you, Taylor. I really want us to get along.
Taylor: Yeah. I mean, I can't guarantee that there might not be a couple of bumps in the road or something. I mean, that's the way life works. But I'm -- I am so okay --
Nick: You all right?
Taylor: I don't -- I don't feel good.
Nick: Sit down. What is it?
Brooke: What? Morning sickness?
Taylor: Oh, God. I was never this sick with the kids.
Nick: Well, this one's special.
Taylor: I don't know what to do. I'm so tired of feeling like this.
Brooke: Well, you know what? I know what to do. Let me help you. I had the worst morning sickness with all four of my kids. Okay first, you need to just take some deep breaths.
Nick: Yeah, that's it. Breathe.
Brooke: In and out.
Bridget: What exactly are you telling me, Carl?
Carl: I know about the investigation.
Bridget: They questioned the custodial staff about my mother's eggs?
Carl: No. But maybe they should've if they wanted to find out what really happened.
Bridget: Oh, so you could tell them?
Carl: I'd rather tell you.
Bridget: Okay, I'm listening.
Carl: Yeah, listening to the wrong people. The doctors, the lab techs, they're just trying to protect themselves. Protect their precious reputations.
Bridget: So you think they're lying?
Carl: I'm not accusing anyone of anything. Memory's tricky. Not always objective. Now me, I've got nothing to lose. I just see what I see.
Bridget: Well what did you see Carl? Whose eggs got fertilized? My mother's or the donor's?
Lab tech #1: Carl, what's going on with these test tubes?
Carl: I've got to hang up. I'll be in touch.
Bridget: Well, wait. Wait. Carl? Carl?
Phoebe: Why didn't you say anything?
Rick: Phoebe, I just got back into town and you were going through so much. Your father had just confessed to Shane's death -- you needed me. Hell, I needed you.
Phoebe: Were you ever going to say anything?
Rick: I don't know. Look, I made a decision at the time, that you needed to be protected. And I'm not trying to sound noble because nothing about what I did was noble. Phoebe, I was so happy. I was so happy that you and I were back together again, and I didn't want to do anything to mess that up. I didn't want to risk losing you again. I will do anything -- anything to regain your trust. Phoebe, you know me. You know how much I love you. I made a horrific, stupid mistake when we were broken up. And I'm so sorry. But I don't want things to be over between us.
Phoebe: I don't want that either.
Brooke: Uh, there's another thing, also. If you push on this pressure point in your wrist, that helps too. But you know what, the blue thing always really worked for me.
Taylor: No, wait. That -- okay. If I use them together, that's helping. That's good.
Nick: There you go. Boy's going to be a sailor. Blue skies, blue seas, blue eyes.
Taylor: Oh, he is so convinced that this is going to be a boy.
Brooke: Really? That's funny. Most men are convinced they're going to have a boy. But there's something really cute about the connection between a little girl and a father.
Taylor: That's true.
Brooke: Yeah, it's cute how they dote on their little girl.
Taylor: Mm-hmm, I know. Ridge used to always assign these frilly little things for the twins.
Nick: Oh, come on.
Brooke: Don't make a face. You gave Hope so many sailor hats, you practically filled her closet.
Taylor: I'm sure he did. Well, I'm going to go. So you two get back to business, okay.
Nick: Are you sure you're feeling okay?
Taylor: Yeah, I'm fine. I'm good. I'm good. Thank you.
Brooke: You're welcome.
Taylor: Wow, if you keep that up, you might really come in handy around here. So why don't you get that business deal signed already. I'm okay with it. It has nothing to do with our marriage.
Brooke: You positive?
Taylor: I don't have a seed of doubt in my mind. Bye.
Nick: Bye. Well, should we get to this? Give this a shot. You know, I really do think that we can -- well you -- you can make a difference.
Brooke: Well, so do I. But there's still one issue that we need to deal with.
Nick: All right. What's that?
Brooke: What do you think?
Lab tech #1: Just answer the question.
Lab tech #2: Do these tubes look clean to you?
Carl: I'll clean them again if you want.
Lab tech #1: Yeah. You do that.
Lab tech #2: Dr. Forrester?
Bridget: Hi, guys. Uh --
Lab tech #2: Sorry about all the confusion with the Marone IVF.
Lab tech #1: Sounds like you were pretty upset about it. We run a really tight ship down here. I would never make a mistake like that.
Bridget: That's very good to know. Thank you.
Lab tech #2: We're going down the hall for some coffee. You want one?
Bridget: No, no. I'm good. I just need to ask Carl a quick question.
Carl: You shouldn't have come. I told you I'd call you back.
Bridget: No, no Carl. This cannot wait. You have to tell me right now. What do you know about the eggs that were implanted in Taylor Marone?
Nick: Well, let's go. Let's do it. Let's just get it all out there. Come on.
Brooke: All right. I could be a huge asset. I mean, that I agree with.
Nick: Absolutely. 100%.
Brooke: But, the reality of the three of us being around each other all the time, during Taylor's pregnancy -- I don't know. Would I just be torturing myself?
Nick: Do you really think that I wouldn't be going through the same thing? I mean, really? Every time you walk in a room, I feel something. I feel -- feelings, memories, and stuff. It's not going away. We can't avoid it and we can't ignore it. But is that really the right thing to do? Shouldn't we deal with it? Don't you think working together could be an opportunity maybe to -- I don't know. A way to get past it somehow. Deal with it. Whatever.
Brooke: Just be friends?
Nick: Yes. I guess so. You know, Brooke, things have been up in the air with us forever. And finally, everybody knows where they stand. So maybe it's time to move forward. Chart a new course.
Brooke: Hmm. Well, we already changed course when we found out that Taylor was pregnant. And as much as I wish it weren't true, we're not going to be able to change that direction.
Carl: I know a lot more than anybody thinks I know. Those guys, the techs, they treat me like I'm an idiot. Not you. You've always been respectful. I mean, not just of me, but the entire custodial staff. Building maintenance. We're the people who really keep this hospital running. If it wasn't for us, you doctors would be practicing medicine like it was the dark ages.
Bridget: I really appreciate what you do, Carl. Now, you were just telling me about the phone call. And you needed to tell me something.
Carl: I could tell you a lot, Bridget. May I call you, Bridget.
Bridget: Yeah, sure.
Carl: The real problem here, isn't here. If there's anyone responsible for this mess, it's the records department. If they'd have only put your mother's last name on her file, there wouldn't be two petri dishes marked Marone in the fertility lab.
Bridget: So there were two dishes? Are you sure you saw them with your own eyes?
Carl: Paper pushers. They're just like payroll. We're all just numbers to them.
Bridget: No, it's not the records department. Dr. Caron meant to change the last name of my mother, but she just forgot.
Carl: Do you think she's going to admit to that in the investigation?
Bridget: Carl, the administration has already looked into everything and they've assured me that it was the donor's eggs that were used in the in vitro fertilization.
Carl: So who are you going to believe? The suits upstairs? Or a guy who's down in the trenches every single day?
Rick: I know that we can make it through this.
Phoebe: It was just when we were broken up, and not after?
Rick: No, it's over. It's gone.
Phoebe: And never again?
Rick: Never. I was just so confused.
Phoebe: And angry?
Rick: No. No, not angry. At all. You were just defending your father, Phoebe. Like any daughter would. But look, that argument -- and the break-up. It's in the past. Okay, it's behind us. We have to focus on where we go from here. And our commitment to each other because I am so committed to you. You are everything that is good in my life. I need you. Never doubt that. I am 100% devoted to you.
Phoebe: You promise?
Rick: I swear.
Phoebe: Pinkie swear?
Rick: Pinkie swear. I love you.
Phoebe: I love you too.
Brooke: You're having a baby, Nick. And I just can't get past that. No matter how hard I try. You and Taylor are going to be parents -- and everything else. Work, your friendship with me -- everything is going to have to take a back seat. Everything's going to be different. You're going to be different. You're already different and the baby's not even here yet.
Nick: I've been the head of two different corporations, in charge of thousands of employees, and you don't think I can handle an infant?
Brooke: No, I do. I really do. You and Taylor, yes. It's -- I'm just not sure I want to witness it.
Nick: Brooke, you're alone. Look what's on your plate. When you're dealing with all this alone, it makes it especially tough.
Brooke: Well, you were the man that I would always turn to. And I loved you being that man.
Nick: So did I.
Brooke: You talk about memories. Well, I have a great memory about the song that you wrote me. I remember hearing it for the very first time. I'll never forget it.
[Brooke remembering] That song -- that song made me believe that there would always be hope for us.
Nick: There is hope for us, Brooke. It's just not going to be the future that we planned. But it doesn't mean that it can't be good. It doesn't mean it can't be good for all of us. Okay?
Brooke: I'm sorry. Here we are. You know, um -- I will always respect your relationship with the mother of your child. Always. But I don't know why, but -- don't take this the wrong way. Something is telling me in my heart that you and I aren't over.
Bridget: Carl, if there is a chance that my mother's eggs were used in Taylor's in vitro fertilization, I need to know.
Carl: Sounds like the higher ups already told you there was no chance.
Bridget: So you're saying that that's not true?
Carl: I'm saying this place was nuts that night. And you know what they say about too many cooks stirring the soup?
Bridget: Oh God. I shouldn't have put so much pressure on myself and everyone else. It was just my first procedure alone. I wanted everything to be --
Carl: No, no, no, no, no, no. You hear me blaming you? No, no. I'd sooner blame myself.
Bridget: You? Why, Carl?
Carl: Because I pride myself on being observant. The type of guy who would speak up if he saw something wrong.
Bridget: Well, did you see something wrong?
Carl: I told you, nothing gets by me. You don't need a fancy diploma to know how this place runs.
Bridget: Well how did it run that night? Dr. Caron said that all the fail-safes were in place. Were they? Please, Carl. Please? Why did you call me down here?
Carl: I called you because I can help you.
Bridget: Okay, then do it. Just answer my questions.
Carl: I can do that.
Bridget: Well, now Carl! Please. Do you have anything to tell me or not?
Carl: I can tell you what you want to know. I can tell you who's the mother of the baby inside of Taylor Marone. I am just not sure that I am really ready to open up to him.
