Felicia: Whoo, it is really blowing out there. There is definitely a storm rolling in.
Felicia: Is everything okay?
Ashley: I'm not sure. Let me ask you something. How do you feel about Ridge and Brooke-- I mean, honestly?
Felicia: How do I feel?
Ashley: Yeah. Are you in the "They're destined to be together forever" camp, or what?
Felicia: I wasn't, uh, um, until Ridge broke it off with you and tried to get back together with Brooke. Why are you asking me this?
Ashley: (Sighs heavily) Just curious.
Felicia: I know that Ridge wants it to work. He has one very firm condition. Brooke can't see Nick.
Ashley: Mm-hmm, I heard about that.
Felicia: Brooke is definitely not gonna mess this up. She's been chasing my brother forever.
Ashley: I wonder.
Ashley: I saw Nick and Brooke together last night, Felicia, on the "Shady Marlin."
Thorne: So I thought things were getting better.
Stephanie: Honey, I'm just happy to be home. And I am feeling stronger every day.
Thorne: Stronger, but not better?
Stephanie: Well, I miss your father.
Stephanie: And I miss you kids, too.
Thorne: What, Ridge hasn't stopped by?
Stephanie: Well, I've had visitors, but my God, I feel like I'm in exile here. I mean, this house used to just be the whole hub of the family. (Clears throat)
Thorne: Well, I'll tell you what. I'll bring Aly by in a couple of days. We'll pick up some ice cream, and I'll call Felicia and Dino, as well.
Stephanie: Well, that would be nice. Did you see your father at work today?
Thorne: I saw him earlier, yes.
Stephanie: Did you tell him that you were coming by?
Thorne: You mean did I ask him to come with?
Stephanie: No, I wouldn't put you in that position.
Thorne: You want him to come on his own?
Stephanie: Well, you know, I was hoping after he saw the video of Stephen shooting me that he'd come to his senses about Donna. But on the other hand, he's not the kind of man that believes the sins of the fathers are necessarily visited upon the children. He's a very fair person.
Thorne: Yeah, well, there's nothing fair about this, Mother. Stephen is the one who should be punished, not you.
Stephanie: You think that's what your father's doing, punishing me?
Thorne: I can see that you're hurting, Mother, and Dad has to see it, too.
Stephanie: His vision has been clouded before.
Thorne: Yeah, well, he says he really cares about Donna.
Stephanie: You said that, too.
Thorne: Well, it's the way that he says it, Mother. He's not trying to prove anything, and he--he doesn't care what anyone thinks. Listen, if you really want to get Dad back, waiting around for him to get over Donna-- that's not the way to do it.
Charlie: All right, here we go. A tight shot on the hand with the gun.
Lt. Baker: Nothing to say?
Brooke: I still don't think our father shot Stephanie.
Storm: You're dreaming if you think this video proves he did.
Charlie: Well, it might after the analysis of the tape is finished.
Lt. Baker: We've got specialists looking at every pixel of this frame-- the gun, the ring, the hand.
Storm: You don't know that's my father's hand. It's too blurry. It's inconclusive.
Lt. Baker: That ring is your father's. That is conclusive. We've got experts who will testify that it is. We've got our man, counselor.
Storm: It's circumstantial, lieutenant.
Charlie: It's a picture of the shooting, counselor.
Storm: You've got a picture of somebody firing a gun. You don't know whose hand it is or who they're firing at. No DNA, no fingerprints, no corroboration. My father will be found innocent. I'll make sure of that.
Felicia: Nick and Brooke together? Are you sure?
Ashley: Yeah. I'm as sure as Ridge is that Brooke's committed to him.
Felicia: How did you see them together on the "Shady Marlin"? Did you follow them?
Ashley: Yes, I followed them. And I know it sounds tacky, but I overheard Brooke arranging to meet Nick at the boat, and I wanted to see what was going on. And now I wish I hadn't, because I was struggling with this all night. I mean, what do I do with this?
Felicia: Uh, it looks bad, yeah, but did you happen to hear what they were talking about?
Ashley: No. I saw them embracing. They were in each other's arms, Felicia.
Felicia: So you think my brother's being duped?
Ashley: I don't know. But he's certainly not getting the whole story, is he?
Felicia: I don't know. What was this about? Was it about the baby, or was it about Nick and Brooke?
Ashley: I don't know. I just know that I feel uncomfortable having this information and doing nothing with it. But on the other hand, I know that Ridge would be devastated if he found out.
Felicia: So I guess the big question is will Ridge find out?
Lt. Baker: Awfully confident.
Brooke: (Sighs) My brother is an excellent lawyer.
Lt. Baker: I've seen what he can do. But I wouldn't count on the victim's family coming forward at this time asking for mercy. No surprise witnesses, no courtroom confessions. This case will be decided on the facts.
Storm: Interpreted by whom, Lieutenant? You?
Charlie: We didn't have to show you the video, Mr. Logan.
Storm: Yeah, why did you? Trying to rattle my cage? Hoping I'd go to my father, encourage him to cut a deal?
Lt. Baker: Not a bad idea.
Storm: You know, the real shooter is out there, and you're not doing a damn thing to find him.
Charlie: We already did. He's in jail, where he belongs.
Storm: Somebody's playing you, detectives, and you can't even see it.
Brooke: Storm, this isn't helping. Look, all we want to know is how to get our dad out on bail.
Lt. Baker: His bail's been revoked.
Charlie: Yeah, your brother the excellent attorney should have told you that.
Storm: (Exhales deeply)
Brooke: (Scoffs) Well, there's gotta be something that we can do.
Lt. Baker: Your father violated the terms of his bail when he confronted Stephanie Forrester. Now the judge ordered him held until trial.
Storm: Oh, come on. She confronted him, too. He left her place. She followed him to his. I mean, doesn't that tell you something? If he was the one that shot her, don't you think she'd be a little afraid of him?
Lt. Baker: (Laughs) To my knowledge, Stephanie Forrester's not afraid of anyone.
Storm: I'm telling you, you've got the wrong man.
Charlie: Prove it.
Storm: I don't have to prove anything. That's your job. As a matter of fact, I guarantee you won't be able to prove that my father did it, because he did not shoot Stephanie Forrester.
Stephanie: What a nice surprise.
Eric: Thought I'd stop by, see how you're doing.
Stephanie: Well, I'd be doing better if I saw you standing there with a suitcase in your hand.
Eric: More like your old self, aren't you?
Stephanie: Doctors say I'm on the mend.
Eric: That's good news.
Stephanie: But then doctors don't know everything.
Eric: You had an appointment this morning. How did that go?
Stephanie: Why do you ask?
Eric: Look, if my concern hurts you, then I won't ask.
Stephanie: Seeing you hurts me, Eric. Knowing where you've been, who you've been with and what you've been doing hurts me.
Thorne: I think I'll let you two guys talk.
Stephanie: No, no, honey, don't leave. Your father isn't staying. Are you?
Eric: Look, I still care about you and what happened to you. What Stephen did to you you didn't deserve.
Stephanie: What you're doing with his daughter-- do I deserve that?
Eric: (Sighs) look, I see I'm not welcome here, so I'll...
Stephanie: Of course you're welcome here, Eric. Just say the word, and I'll take you back in a minute. I'm not too proud to say this in front of our son. I'll give up my pride and my self-respect, whatever it takes to have you come back. We don't even have to share a bedroom if that's what you need. I just want you to come home, Eric.
Donna: There. Is that it?
Katie: Yep. I've got photo albums, yearbooks, everything I could come up with.
Donna: This is your life, Storm Logan.
Katie: He's gonna be so surprised. I'm sure that with all this business with Dad, he thinks we completely forgot about his birthday.
Donna: Just don't talk about the case, okay? I mean, tonight is all about stormy.
Katie: Hey, fine with me. I wouldn't mind if we never had to talk about Dad ever again.
Donna: Oh. Hurry, hurry.
Katie: Here, quick, grab that one.
Brooke: Okay, I've got it. Oh, close the umbrella!
Brooke: Happy birthday, Storm.
Storm: You guys... mwah. Are so sweet.
Katie: Happy birthday.
Storm: Oh, thank you, dear. Mmm.
Donna: Happy birthday, Stormy.
Storm: Oh, thank you.
Katie: It's a good thing you guys were late. We barely got everything done.
Storm: Yeah, we got held up at the police station. (Sighs) Oh, thanks.
Brooke: Lt. Baker says the judge revoked Dad's bail.
Donna: Why is this happening? Dad did not shoot Stephanie.
Storm: Yeah, it's that damn ring. It looks just like Dad's high school ring.
Katie: That's because it is his ring.
Storm: I don't believe that.
Katie: Oh, come on. How much proof do you need?
Storm: Look, I refuse to accept that Dad is guilty, and I wish you wouldn't either, Katie.
Ashley: I don't know what I'm going to do.
Felicia: Well, Ashley, you could have called Ridge immediately and told him, and you didn't.
Ashley: That's true. So I guess I want to cut Brooke some slack, because she's been going through so much in her life lately with her father and--
Felicia: You're gonna keep an eye on her.
Ashley: I guess I am. I kind of feel like I have no choice. If Brooke goes on seeing Nick, I'm definitely gonna let Ridge know.
Felicia: Good. And I will be right there to back you up.
Eric: Well, are you happy? You drove Thorne away.
Stephanie: No, I didn't. Catherine's waiting for him down at his house. She has all the children. He's babysitting Hope and R.J. tonight.
Eric: He was uncomfortable.
Stephanie: He felt sorry for me.
Eric: Is that what you want?
Stephanie: No, that's not what I want. I don't want his sympathy, and I certainly don't want your sympathy.
Eric: You know I'm not coming back? I'm making my future with Donna.
Stephanie: (Chuckles) Somebody up there doesn't like the sound of that any better than I do.
Eric: Is this what I can expect every time I drop in here?
Stephanie: Until you decide to come home for good.
Eric: I've made my decision.
Stephanie: I'm supposed to accept it?
Eric: I would hope so, yes.
Stephanie: You're going to make a new life with another woman. I mean, how can you do that and claim to care about me?
Donna: You had to bring it up.
Katie: What? I didn't bring up Dad.
Brooke: Okay, okay, we're all frustrated. This is a terrible situation.
Storm: Now Dad's in jail. I can't get him out. I just feel like it's my fault.
Brooke: Storm, don't beat yourself up about this. Dad broke the terms of his bail. So the judge revoked it.
Storm: Yeah, well, I'm gonna file a motion contesting it.
Donna: Tonight's your birthday.
Brooke: Right. The clerk's office is closed tonight anyway. There's nothing you can do about it.
Storm: Yeah, I suppose. (Inhales sharply) there's just something weird about this case. I can't put my finger on it.
Brooke: Well, maybe there's a reason for that.
Katie: I can think of a good reason.
Brooke: Dad is so sincere, and yet the gun was found in his hotel room, and there's a video of the shooting, and there's Dad's class ring. But the whole thing seems more and more like a setup to me.
Katie: Oh, come on. Are we back to that-- Dad was framed? By whom--one of the Forresters?
Donna: Look, Stephanie was never in any real danger. It was--it was a flesh wound.
Katie: She was shot. (Thunder crashes)
Katie: Oh, God.
Donna: Oh, God, it's the storm.
Donna: I knew it was getting bad out there.
Brooke: Uh, Storm, I have a lighter on the mantel up there, and there's some extra candles in the drawer.
Storm: Got it.
Katie: Thank God the kids are at Thorne's. I hope the power didn't go out there. Blackouts used to really freak me out when I was little.
Storm: You know, I remember that. I had to take you outside to show you that not all the power was out. Our neighborhood was dark, but, uh, the lights from the city lit up the sky.
Katie: You made it okay, just like you're doing now for us and for Dad.
Storm: Yeah, well, I'm just trying to get him cleared of those charges.
Katie: What if he doesn't deserve to be cleared?
Storm: Even so. Everybody deserves the right to the best possible defense, including our father.
Katie: Even if he's guilty?
Donna: Will you stop saying that?
Katie: Oh, come on. We have to face reality. This man walked out on his wife and four kids. We have no idea what he's capable of, especially if he thinks that shooting Stephanie might be a way to make up for being such a lousy father.
Brooke: You think he did it to protect our family?
Donna: Dad has been here for us lately.
Katie: Has he? Really? Come on, let's face it, he was never there for us when we were growing up, and he's not gonna be there for us in the future. He's gonna be in prison.
Katie: Oh, yeah,
Storm: All right, but please don't sing.
Katie: Oh, come on. At least pretend like you're having a good time.
Storm: Oh, I'm sorry. I'm just not in the mood to celebrate with Dad in jail. The cops and the D.A. Are so ignorant, they think they can make the charges stick.
Brooke: Well, then it's a good thing he has the best lawyer in California on his side.
Donna: Yeah, take it from three people who know how wonderful it is having you in their corner.
Katie: This night's about you, how important you are to this family.
Donna: Oh, come on, Stormy, just blow out your candles, and make a wish.
Katie: Come on.
Storm: Oh, all right, all right. Only because you three are just so sweet.
Storm: All right, hold on. Um, okay. What'd you guys put...
Storm: Did you put these on there? Those are those no-blow-out candles.
Storm: And you can put away the presents, and definitely put away that stuff.
Katie: Oh, no, come on, this'll be so much fun-- walk down memory lane-- all those bad hair days.
Storm: Ohh, yeah, maybe some other time. Ohh.
Donna: Well, it's kind of hard to see in the dark anyway.
Katie: Well, if we're not gonna have a party, I probably should go back to the office.
Storm: No, please don't leave. It's just kind of nice having everybody here together like this.
Donna: Well, it would be if we weren't arguing all the time.
Brooke: (Sighs) Donna's right. We all need to pull together.
Brooke: I mean, look at Dad and Storm. Before any of this happened, they could barely be in the same room.
Storm: I know. Let's eat the cake.
Brooke: Oh. (Laughs)
Donna: Yeah, save a piece for Dad. I'll stick a file in it and drop it off at the jail.
Brooke: You wished for Dad to be cleared, didn't you?
Storm: (Laughs) You got me.
Brooke: We're gonna get through this.
Storm: Well, you just let me worry about that, will ya?
Donna: Look, we're not little girls anymore, Stormy. You don't have to take care of everything yourself.
Storm: Yeah, I'm sorry about that. It's just old habits die hard, you know?
Katie: You've had a lot of practice being the man of the house.
Storm: (Sighs) It's crazy. I used to resent Dad for that, you know, for ditching his responsibilities and dumping them on me. Hmm. I never thought I'd be able to forgive Dad for that, but I don't know, being angry with him just wasn't the answer. It didn't solve anything.
Brooke: You're lucky it didn't change you, because animosity's a terrible thing. Don't go there.
Donna: Like he could.
Storm: Well, if I were perfect, Dad wouldn't be in jail, right?
Brooke: Oh, come on. You're doing everything you possibly can.
Storm: Thanks. It's just that I don't want to let anybody down. As hard as it gets, I just can't give up. I can't--I can't forget why this is important to me-- because of you. (Inhales sharply) I love you all so much. And I don't want you to worry about Dad or about Stephanie, because I'm not gonna let anything come between us. I have been looking after this family for... (laughs) my whole life. And I'm not gonna stop now.
Donna: And we will always be grateful, Stormy.
Katie: We know who we can depend on...
Katie: (Giggles) who's always been there for us.
Storm: Oh, you guys just-- you guys are so sweet.
Donna: We love you, Storm.
Brooke: You're the best.
Storm: Thanks. (Sighs heavily)
Stephanie: That is what the Logans are capable of.
Eric: Stephen, not his children.
Stephanie: He's a coward, always has been. For God's sakes, he couldn't even face me when he shot me. He's pathetic. And anyone that defends him is pathetic.
Eric: You can't fault his family for standing by him.
Eric: And you of all people should know that children are capable of forgiving their parents all sorts of sins.
Stephanie: You compare that man to me? He tried to kill me. He was not acting in the best interest of his children. He's a lunatic. (Thunder rumbles)
Brooke: (Laughs) Look at these old pictures. Stormy--so young. State water polo champs.
Storm: Something interesting?
Brooke: Ohh! Oh, God. Stormy.
Storm: Sorry. I didn't mean to startle you.
Brooke: (Sighs) I thought you were leaving.
Storm: No, I just walked Donna and Katie to the car. I didn't want to leave you all alone in the dark.
Storm: What are you looking at? (Laughs) Oh, man. Yeah, I had forgotten about that picture.
Brooke: Captain of the water polo team. And you're wearing your class ring.
