Brooke: Sorry to disappoint you, big brother, but no, I don't believe you're capable of murder.
Storm: So you say. But what are you really thinking?
Brooke: At the moment, I-I would like to go to bed.
Storm: Oh, come on! Just go ahead and ask me. I know you're dying to.
Brooke: Ask you what?
Storm: If I shot Stephanie Forrester. If I set Dad up to take the fall.
Stephanie: Well, I-- yes, I-I--my gosh. I just wanted to check if you got back to the hotel all right. I was--you know, the television said that there's a lot of electric outages all around town.
Eric: I got home fine, actually. Uh, I barely got wet at all.
Stephanie: I wish I could say the same for the poor fellow who just delivered the Christmas tree.
Eric: You had a Christmas tree-- you had a Christmas tree delivered at this hour?
Stephanie: (Laughs) well, I-I guess--I don't know. He must have trouble with his truck getting up the hill or something in the rain. I wish you could have stayed. We could have trimmed the tree together.
Eric: Look, don't overdo it, all right? You're still recovering. Why don't you call the kids, get them to-- get them to help you?
Stephanie: We'll see. Anyway, I'm glad to know that you're safe. Good night. (Rainfall)
Ridge: Should you be up on your feet at this hour?
Stephanie: (Laughs) oh, what a nice surprise! What are you doing here so late?
Ridge: Oh, I just wanted to make sure you hadn't washed away. I heard there was some flooding in the area.
Stephanie: We don't live in a floodplain. Oh, I see. So you still care?
Storm: So you really think that because I have a ring that looks like Dad's that makes me a killer?
Brooke: Oh, God, Storm, no. You couldn't pick up a gun and shoot somebody in cold blood any more than I could.
Storm: Well, good. I'm glad you feel that way because when I first told you that I still had the ring, well, you kind of had this strange look on your face.
Brooke: I was upset, hearing how Dad disappointed you your senior year by not showing up at your championship game.
Storm: So that's all it was? Sympathy?
Brooke: Look, I know you've had your issues with our father. We all have. But this last week since he's been arrested, you've been incredible. You know, just like when you took care of us when Dad left in the first place.
Storm: (Laughs) storm "The control freak," huh?
Brooke: No, that's not what I meant.
Brooke: Can I see the ring?
Storm: It's, uh, the same stone as Dad's, different date, obviously... (chuckles) 1982 instead of '62. That's, uh, water polo on the side.
Brooke: And a swimmer on the other, with your name--Stephen.
Storm: Hmm. Yeah, that's only 'cause mom wouldn't let me have "Storm" engraved.
Brooke: Well, why don't you wear it on your finger instead of hide it under your shirt?
Storm: Why would I want to do that?
Brooke: Now that you and Dad are getting along...
Storm: Yeah, I don't think so. But thanks.
Brooke: For what?
Storm: For believing in me, like you always have. It's really meant the world to me.
Brooke: Well, family's always meant so much to you.
Storm: Yeah. (Sighs) it still does.
Brooke: Um... yeah, well, um, ridge is gonna be home soon.
Brooke: And you probably have to get home and get some rest. You need sleep.
Storm: (Clears throat)
Storm: Yes, yes, so I can free Dad from jail.
Brooke: Exactly. (Laughs)
Storm: (Clears throat) I promise you. Justice will be done.
Stephanie: Sweetheart, would you like to fix yourself a drink? I mean, please feel free. (Chuckles) I'll live vicariously.
Ridge: Still on the pain meds?
Stephanie: Oh, yes. "Never mix, never worry," I believe that's what the doctor said.
Ridge: Nice tree.
Stephanie: It is pretty, isn't it?
Ridge: Can I help?
Stephanie: With what? Decorating or perhaps lifting my spirits or maybe correcting all the mistakes I've made. Forget the last one. (Sighs heavily) oh, God, Ridge, I don't know. I've apologized every which way I can think of, and-- what am I supposed to do? Just accept the fact that things are never going to be the same for any of us?
Ridge: One thing I have realized is that you would have never done what you did to intentionally hurt anyone, not even Brooke.
Stephanie: What brought about this epiphany?
Ridge: I guess seeing you in that hospital bed, how close we came to losing you. It really drove some things home for me. Why spend your life mad at people and carrying grudges?
Stephanie: Are you going to forgive me about this thing with Brooke?
Ridge: Mother, I can't forget the damage that was done, but I am trying to move past it. After all, you are my Mother... and I love you very much.
Stephanie: I love you, too. Thank you, sweetheart. Thank you so much. I have changed.
Ridge: I have a pretty good idea that's true.
Stephanie: I wish your father could see it, though. I wish he could realize it.
Eric: I'm so glad I get to see you. I've been calling you. I-I haven't heard from you all day, and I thought--
Donna: Yeah, well, my sisters and I threw a little party for storm, and, you know--
Eric: Yeah, well, it's a pretty hard day for all of you, wasn't it?
Donna: Yeah, including Dad.
Donna: I just came from the jail, and, you know, he was trying really hard to put on a brave front, but... (crying) you know, I told myself I wasn't gonna do this.
Eric: What? Be real with me? Donna, come on.
Donna: No, I believe he's innocent. You don't. I mean, what's the point of rehashing everything? It's just-- it's not gonna change our minds. You know,-I just wish there was something I could do to find out who really shot Stephanie.
Eric: (Sighs) look, no matter how all this plays out, I'll be here for you. You can come to me, you know?
Donna: What would I do without my honey bear? (Giggles)
Eric: (Laughs) I don't know. Let's just hope, uh, we never have to find out, okay?
Donna: (laughs) well, I guess we both needed a little cheering up.
Donna: Close your eyes.
Eric: Close--no. Why?
Donna: Just--just turn around, and-- I brought something I thought you might like.
Eric: All right, all right, I'm closing my eyes now. I'm in a hotel room. I'm closing my eyes.
Donna: (Giggles) okay.
Eric: Okay what?
Donna: Wait, wait just a minute.
Eric: I'm waiting. Hmm.
Donna: Okay, you can look.
Donna: Look. Open.
Eric: Opening my eyes.
Donna: Eric, what's wrong?
Charlie: I need this, like, yesterday, a week ago yesterday. Okay, so listen. Listen. You can do it. I have faith in you. Come on, Gordon, take care of business, all right? Good.
Charlie: Visiting hours are over.
Brooke: I want to see Jake Maclaine's video.
Charlie: Refresh my memory.
Brooke: You know what I'm talking about. I need to see that footage tonight. And I'm not leaving here until I do.
Ridge: From our two little Picassos.
Stephanie: Hope and R.J. did this?
Ridge: Yeah, at school.
Stephanie: Oh, honey, they're just adorable. (Laughs) (inhales sharply) you remember when you guys were little? You used to make the ornaments, you know, and then hang them on the tree.
Ridge: Oh, yeah.
Stephanie: Oh, Lord. (Sighs) then your father, after you all were grown up, we'd get those boxes down from the attic and hang them and reminisce about-- I don't know if I'm gonna make it through the holiday season. I mean, what if your father never comes home again? (Sighs heavily) the whole reason I kept this family together was because of him. I mean, he was the reason that I did it.
Stephanie: Oh, well, if I start decorating, throw some tinsel up on that big old tree... (sighs) maybe the place won't seem so damn depressing.
Ridge: Chin up, Mother. It's the holidays-- time for miracles. Who knows? Maybe you'll get a miracle of your own.
Eric: No, nothing's wrong, not really. It's a-it's a sweet gesture. God knows this room could use some Christmas spirit.
Donna: Eric... (sighs) talk to me. Something is bothering you.
Eric: I went to see Stephanie, uh, see how she's doing.
Donna: Oh. How's she doing?
Eric: She's doing better. Better.
Eric: And she, uh, called me when I got home to be sure I got home without getting all wet in the rain and, uh--
Donna: (Scoffs) well, that was thoughtful.
Eric: Yes, for a change. And she also told me that she had a big Christmas tree delivered. And--
Donna: Oh, I bet ya it takes up, like, almost the whole living room-- a lot more grand than this little guy. (Laughs)
Eric: Yeah. (Laughs)
Eric: Yeah. And every year, we'd, uh, decorate it together. We used to. We'd argue about, uh, whose turn it is to disengage all the wires of the lights and how much tinsel to put on and where.
Donna: You and your wife had a lot of traditions together. And you wouldn't be the man I love if severing those ties wasn't painful. But Stephanie also had a tradition of putting you down and--and disrespecting you and ignoring your needs.
Eric: No, I know. It's just that it's a lot easier to remember the things that are good, rather than the things that drove you apart. I'm sorry.
Donna: Especially at Christmastime, right, 'cause it's all about family, and you have children and grandchildren.
Eric: Yes, all of whom came to the house to celebrate every year.
Donna: And you're gonna miss that. You love me, and you love your family. I get it. It's a--it's a dilemma for you.
Eric: (Inhales sharply) Yeah. The real dilemma is not wanting to, uh, disappoint anybody. And no matter what I do, somebody's gonna get hurt.
Donna: Will you listen to me? The only way you will ever, ever disappoint me is if you don't follow your heart. That's all I ever wanted for you, Eric, right from the very beginning. And if you do that and you stay true to yourself, everything else will just fall into place.
Charlie: Your brother's gone over this footage. I mean, he's a pretty thorough guy.
Brooke: (Sighs) this is it. This is the frame right before the gun goes off. Now I've frozen it. So is there any way that you can zoom in and focus on the details of the ring?
Charlie: Sure. How's that?
Brooke: I still can't read it.
Charlie: What exactly are you looking for?
Brooke: (Sighs) what if this isn't my father's hand? What if somebody who knows him well, the intimate details of his life, is cleverly setting him up? .
Eric: Merry Christmas.
Eric: Let me see you.
Eric: O my goodness. You look, uh, you look cozy.
Donna: It feels like heaven-- finally, finally being alone with you.
Eric: You've had one hell of a day, haven't you?
Donna: Endless. Anytime I'm not with my snuggle bunny. (Giggles)
Eric: I'm glad you're happy.
Donna: You know, I didn't know the meaning of that word until I fell in love with you.
Donna: No matter how messed up the world gets, you--you put your arms around me, and--and I'm calm.
Donna: Like everything is just--it's gonna be okay. (Inhales sharply) you are my oasis, the place I find peace. I treasure you for that, Eric.
Eric: Good. Good.
Brooke: You have t admit it's possible, that the hand in the footage isn't my father's.
Charlie: We found a gun in his hotel room. He was--he was heard making multiple threats against Mrs. Forrester. And the ring he wore-- it's the same ring you saw in that footage.
Brooke: Just because he has a ring like that doesn't meant that it's his ring or his hand.
Charlie: I guess you didn't hear from your brother. We have new evidence that confirms our theory.
Brooke: What evidence?
Charlie: We had an expert examine and photograph your father's hand. Also took an analysis of the image inside that photo. According to his measurements, your father's hand and that handholding that gun-- they appear to match. Now I know it's rough for you to believe someone you love could commit a crime.
Brooke: Yeah. Yeah, it is rough. Do you have an extra one of these photos?
Brooke: Can I just keep this copy?
Charlie: (Scoffs) you can stare at it all you want. Nothing's gonna change.
Charlie: Knock yourself out, Ms. Logan. But we have a case, a strong one.
Man: Okay, I'll be right back with the paperwork.
Charlie: Excuse me, Ms. Logan? I know it's difficult for you to believe that a relative of yours could shoot someone, but he did.
Brooke: A member of my family attempted murder. You may be right about that. Bye.
