Taylor: Don't you dare come in here and try to take my baby away.
Brooke: I'm not.
Nick: Brooke, maybe this isn't the time.
Taylor: Get out!
Brooke: No, all I want to do is tell you--
Taylor: I don't care!
Brooke: Taylor, you really need to listen.
Taylor: No, I want you to stay away from me. And don't you dare go near my baby. Now get out!
Stephanie: Eric, I want to make this right. How could I possibly have known what that man would do to Brooke? Do you think that I--
Eric: All right, you need to stop this.
Stephanie: I want to ap-- look, all I wanted to do was protect my grandchildren.
Eric: Well, what do you know? The road to hell is paved with good intentions.
Stephanie: Sometimes it is, you know? Bu-- look, the road I've been on has been paved with obsession and hatred, and I've been on it a long time. I don't want that anymore. I just-- I don't want this to cost me a life without you and our children. I... that would be hell for me.
Phoebe: I've never seen Mom so happy.
Ridge: So she and the baby are fine?
Ridge: Are you just now coming from the hospital?
Phoebe: No, nick's house. I was getting the nursery ready with Jackie and Thomas.
Ridge: So you haven't checked in with them again tonight?
Phoebe: No. But you could always call Mom and congratulate her.
Ridge: Well, I think I'll just... send a gift to the house.
Phoebe: You know, it's okay to feel weird about Mom having a kid with someone else. I mean, it was hard for me to get used to the idea at first. But nick's gonna be a really great dad.
Ridge: Well, maybe he'll focus on his own life now and stay the hell out of mine.
Taylor: Where the hell is security? Somebody get her out of here.
Nick: Honey, please. Now Brooke is just as shocked and confused as we are. If we could all just calm down and try to make some--
Taylor: Calm down? Brooke is the donor of our child, Nick. How could this even be possible?
Brooke: There was a mix-up in the fertility lab. I gave an egg donation many, many months ago for medical research, and my medical records still said the name "Marone." It was some stupid clerical error.
Taylor: A clerical error? (Scoffs) my life is turned upside down because of a clerical error?
Brooke: I'm sorry.
Taylor: Really? You wanted a child with Nick. Isn't --isn't that what you wanted?
Brooke: Taylor, a lot has happened since then. We've all moved on. And, yes, this baby-- it was conceived with my egg, but it's your son, Taylor. This child is yours.
Eric: If you came back here looking for sympathy, you've knocked on the wrong door. You're not gonna find very many others open to you either.
Stephanie: Eric, you don't think that I wanted th-- you don't think I wanted her to be raped?
Eric: You didn't care what might happen to her.
Stephanie: Do you think that I haven't asked myself how I could have let that happen, how I could have been so lost in my own hate?
Eric: It's who you are. (Inhales deeply) Years ago, you were a warm, loving woman completely devoted to your family. But your children grew up, and you couldn't let them live their own lives, especially Ridge. No woman was good enough for him, and certainly not a woman who brought to him such love and fulfillment as Brooke did. And so she was a threat to you. But really, you were jealous. You wanted Ridge and the children for yourself, because the truth of the matter is the real love of your life is Ridge. And no amount of soul searching is gonna change that.
Ridge: Look, I've said as many prayers for that child as anyone today.
Phoebe: Yeah, but--but you're still angry with Nick. And grandpa's got the company back.
Ridge: Sweetheart, my issues with Nick don't have to affect your relationship with him, okay? (Cell phone rings)
Ridge: That might be your mother. Hello?
Nurse: Is this Ridge Forrester?
Nurse: Sir, this is university hospital. I have your name on the emergency contact sheet for a ms. Brooke Logan. I wanted to inform you that Ms. Logan will not be released tonight.
Ridge: Released? What--what happened?
Nurse: You weren't aware that Ms. Logan had been admitted?
Ridge: No, I wasn't.
Nurse: I assumed since she listed you as an emergency contact... I may have made a mistake. I am so sorry to have bothered you.
Ridge: Wait. Hello? Hello?
Phoebe: What is it?
Ridge: Brooke's in the hospital. I've gotta get over there.
Ridge: See you a little later.
Taylor: The child is all mine?
Brooke: ...And Nick's. I just came from seeing him. He's so beautiful. (Sighs) I've given him everything that I can, but that's not enough. What he needs from you is far more precious-- his mother. Nothing is more important than that.
Taylor: Don't tell me how to be a mother.
Brooke: I'm not. I just want you to understand so that there's no confusion.
Taylor: I carried that baby for eight months, and all that time, I was preparing. I was imagining our future together. I was... thinking of everything that we would do as a family, raising our baby together.
Brooke: And you will, Taylor. You can have the life that you've dreamed of, that you've imagined. I am not going to stand in your way.
Stephanie: I love my son. There's nothing to be ashamed of in that.
Eric: No, there's not. But you can't let him live his own life. That's the problem.
Stephanie: It's not what's wrong with this marriage.
Eric: I wasn't aware you thought anything was wrong with this marriage, the way you breezed in here.
Stephanie: Why I breezed in-- look, Eric, I was nervous. (Sighs heavily) I went away, because I was hoping that it would give you time to think all of this through and--and time to understand it was never my intention to hurt Brooke in that way.
Eric: Taking her children away from her wasn't hurtful?
Stephanie: You're always so determined to see the worst in me. That's the problem with this marriage.
Eric: So it's my fault?
Stephanie: Well, partly. I mean, isn't it 50-50? Haven't we both made mistakes, Eric? And haven't most of the mistakes that we've made in our lives involved Brooke?
Eric: Oh, here it comes now. Here it is again.
Stephanie: Oh, please, don't stand there and roll your eyes and just act as though you know exactly what I'm going through.
Eric: I-I do know what you're gonna say! I've heard it a thousand times before, and I'm tired of it.
Stephanie: Well, do you think I'm not? Do you think I fe-- I like feeling this way? You're absolutely right when you say that I've changed. Of course I've changed over the years. But it hadn't anything to do with losing the children. It had everything to do with losing you. You've never really wanted to face what happened. You never wanted to look and understand why the wall came down between us. My heart stopped beating for you the day I saw you in Brooke's arms.
Stephanie: I'm asking you please, please, please, please, don't let what happened to Brooke come between us.
Eric: Brooke is the victim here, not you.
Stephanie: Of course she's the victim, but I didn't victimize her. The son of a bitch that raped her did!
Eric: You sent him! And until you take full responsibility for that, there's nothing more for you and me to say.
Stephanie: You want me to apologize to Brooke, I will. I in--of course I will. I'm asking you, please, please, open your heart and try to understand and to forgive me.
Eric: It's not that simple. A lot's happened since you've been away. You need to hear about it from me.
Ridge: Oh, I'm sorry. I was told Brooke Logan was in here.
Nurse: Oh, she was. She may have been transferred to a room. I can check for you, though that really would surprise me. It's standard procedure to spend a few hours in recovery following a transplant.
Ridge: What do you mean a transplant?
Nurse: Oh, she donated her bone marrow to the Marone baby.
Ridge: To Nick and Taylor's child?
Nick: Ladies, I'm the boy's father. I'd like to say something. There's no issue about paternity here. The real question is parenthood.
Nick: And that's the commitment that we made together to this boy. What he likes, what he is and who he becomes-- we are his parents. This is a commitment we've made for a lifetime-- to raise this boy with love and kindness and to give him our best... together...
Nick: Together, right?
Taylor: (Sobbing) But if he likes me, why would he act that way?
Brooke: I should go.
Taylor: Not yet.
Nick: Honey, there's-- there's nothing else to say.
Taylor: Yes, there is.
Taylor: Thank you.
Taylor: Because of you, our--our child will finally have a chance at a normal life.
Brooke: I just did what any mother-- why, I-I just did what needed to be done.
Taylor: For a child you don't have any connection with?
Brooke: (Sighs) Taylor, I'll never forget what happened here today, but when the doctor releases me, I go back home to my own life, to my own family. Nothing has changed.
Taylor: Can you live with that? Really, Brooke, look me in the eye and tell me you can live with that. A month from now, a year, ten years, you won't look at your child and wonder if maybe things could have been different?
Brooke: No. And I pray to God you don't either.
Nick: It'll be okay. We'll make it work.
Stephanie: Please, Eric, just open your heart and give me a chance.
Eric: While you were gone, I've changed, too.
Stephanie: (Inhales deeply) Look, let's not talk anymore right now, okay? I-I-I'll--I'll go see Brooke tonight, and I will apologize, and I will ask her please if she can find it in her heart to forgive me.
Eric: Yeah, you do that.
Stephanie: Don't just write this off. I realize that--that it-- look, this isn't going to fix everything or-- couldn't it just be at least the first step? (Door opens and closes)
Donna: She thinks you two still have a chance.
Eric: Stephanie only hears what she wants to hear.
Donna: I am not a home wrecker, Eric.
Eric: Donna, I made her no promises.
Donna: (Scoffs) Well, you haven't made me any either. But I can make you one. No matter how much Stephanie has or has not changed, your life with her won't. I mean, when was the last time you were truly happy with her?
Eric: (Scoffs) Life isn't always like that, Donna.
Donna: It should be. I mean, maybe not always, but--but a lot.
Donna: Is that how she makes you feel? Eric, life--life is a banquet, and it's all right there in front of you. Yeah, you can survive on bread and water, but wouldn't you rather have a-a decadent piece of chocolate cake? And I know you know what I'm talking about. It's why you do what you do. I mean, women could cover themselves in gunnysacks, but... what's the point of high fashion? It's to feel good about yourself. Which one of us does that for you, Eric -- Stephanie or me?
Brooke: Ridge, what are you doing here?
Ridge: The hospital called. I heard what you did-- donated marrow to Taylor and Nick's baby. That--are you all right?
Brooke: Yeah, just a little weak.
Ridge: Let me help you.
Brooke: My back's sore.
Ridge: Are you supposed to be out of bed?
Brooke: Uh, I-I had to talk to Taylor.
Ridge: How's she doing?
Brooke: She's overwhelmed.
Ridge: SCID, S-C-I-D? Wh -- what is that? I've never heard of that.
Brooke: It's a problem with the baby's immune system. But he has a fighting chance now.
Ridge: Well, yeah, thanks to you. You're one incredible lady for doing something like that.
Brooke: Could you get me some water, please?
Ridge: Yeah, sure.
Dr. Caron: Oh, Brooke, I'm glad you're here. I wanted to thank you. You really rose above all the confusion today. That took a lot of courage.
Brooke: I wish everybody would stop acting like I'm some kind of hero.
Dr. Caron: (Scoffs) You did an incredible thing for your little boy.
Ridge: She just called him your little boy. Why'd she say that? Why'd the doctor refer to Taylor and Nick's little baby as your little boy?
