Stephanie: She's broken your heart. I'm sorry.
Eric: I'll get over it.
Stephanie: Yes, you will.
Eric: I mean, now that I know what Donna really is like, I'll--I'll--I'll deal with it.
Stephanie: Is there anything that I can do?
Eric: After all this, you're willing to offer me that?
Stephanie: We've shared a lot of years together, honey. We have a great family, and it's been an incredible journey. Nobody can change that.
Eric: No. Nobody can change what you and I have had together.
Stephanie: Is there a chance that we could start over again?
Eric: You'd be willing to do that?
Stephanie: I'd do that, yes, in a heartbeat. I want that more than anything.
Eric: After everything that I've put you through, you'd be willing to do that?
Stephanie: You're my world, Eric. You're my whole world. You always have been.
Rick: Hi. We really need to talk. Can I come in?
Taylor: Come in, come in, come in.
Rick: Thank you. Um, Taylor, I-I-I really don't know how to put this. So, uh, I'm just-- I'm just gonna say it. Um, I'm really worried about the fact that you're-- that you're drinking again.
Taylor: Did you say anything to anyone?
Rick: Now just hang on. Just let me finish, all right? I-I've been thinking about this ever since I left today. I just--I-I'm really worried about you, Taylor.
Taylor: Rick, I need to know. Just tell me who you said--
Rick: You realize you're putting yourself at risk, not to mention your-- your new baby up there, Jack.
Taylor: Jack is fine. Jack is fine. You've gotta believe me when I tell you I would never do anything to put my baby in harm's way. God, why is everybody judging me...
Rick: I'm not--
Taylor: And my ability to be a mother?
Rick: Tay-- I'm not judging you.
Taylor: Of course you are.
Rick: No, I'm not.
Taylor: Yes, you are. That's what you came over here today to do. You came over here telling me how to live my life, and then you grabbed a bottle of alcohol, you went running out the door, scaring me to death you were gonna say something to Nick. Yeah, of course you want me to look guilty.
Rick: What the--what the hell are you talking about? It w--I don't--
Taylor: You want your mother and my husband to get back together. You made that very clear.
Rick: (Inhales sharply)
Nick: Clarke, I am at the office wondering where you and my mother are, also wondering where this new line is that's gonna make us a fortune. Call me on my cell when you get this.
Katie: Oh, I'm so sorry. I know how hard this must be for you.
Katie: I can imagine that breaking it off with Eric has just gotta be ripping you apart. You did the right thing. I'm proud of you.
Donna: Well, you may not be so proud of me once you hear what I did.
Eric: Oh, you warned me time and time again about-- about Donna and what she was really about. How could I not have seen that? How could I-- how could I have been blind to what she was really about? And to think that all that mattered to her was--was, uh, sex and indecency and--and--and that she would just go on with that without-- ohh, God. I actually thought that I could-- that I could help her with this. I-I thought that I could-- I could intervene somehow, but--but all she wanted-- and then--and then I find her-- I find her in--in--in bed with another man.
Stephanie: Well, forget about her. She doesn't matter.
Eric: No, she doesn't, because the only thing that matters to her is hot sex with some other guy. Well, I'm not gonna-- I'm not gonna have that. I'm not gonna do it. I'm finished with her.
Rick: Taylor, I am not here to talk about my mom or Nick.
Taylor: No, that's the only reason you came by earlier. It certainly wasn't to give me that gift.
Rick: I am here now to talk about your drinking.
Taylor: It was one drink, okay? It was--it was one drink. That was it. Who the hell wouldn't, after everything I've been through? I mean, I get tricked by your sister into carrying your mother's love child for nine months, I get attached to the baby, and then on top of it, the baby's born deathly ill. Like--like I'm not supposed to be human, like I'm not supposed to have a momentary lapse in judgment. (Sighs) please, please, Rick, please, don't use this horrible time in my life against me. Please don't use it for your own agenda. I know you don't want your mother with Ridge, but please, if you say anything to Nick-- I can't take any more loss. Please, I'm begging you. I'm begging you.
Nick: I'll just tell her to expect those racks back on--on Thursday, right? Good. I'll leave her a note here. I appreciate the heads-up. Right-O.
Katie: You did tell him, right? You told him it was over?
Donna: I tried.
Katie: Oh, God, Donna. Stephanie wasn't kidding. She's gonna throw Stormy in jail if you don't do this.
Donna: I can't.
Katie: Yes, you can. You have to.
Donna: Look, I told him everything.
Katie: I-I don't understand. If you told him, then why didn't he break it off?
Donna: I told him the truth, Katie. I told him that Stephanie is blackmailing me.
Stephanie: It breaks my heart to see you in such pain. I knew this was going to happen. I knew she was going to break your heart. And I--oh, Eric, I'm so sorry.
Eric: I've just been a fool. I've been an absolute fool. I'm sorry. Well, I want her out of my life. I want her out of the company and out of my life for good.
Stephanie: Well, thank God. (Laughs) (sighs heavily) to hear you finally say that all-- I mean, I... thank God you've come to this realization, Eric.
Rick: Taylor, I'm not here to judge you. I'm not here to cause-- cause any trouble. I'm not here to-- to further an agenda. I'm here as somebody who-- who really cares about you.
Rick: You're the recipient of a... (sighs) a very raw deal. And I want to help you in any way that I can.
Taylor: (Sniffles) I just feel like I've had this weight on my shoulders for months, like I haven't had anybody who really knows what I'm going through. (Sniffles) I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I didn't mean to get defensive.
Taylor: It's just that I... I don't anybody knows what I'm going through.
Rick: Now can you please not apologize to me, all right? I-I should be saying "I'm sorry" to you. I-I-I can't even imagine what you must be going through right now.
Taylor: I mean, intellectually, on one hand, I-I know that-- I know that the mix-up in--in the lab was an accident, but then there's just these other times like-- like I feel like I'm-- I'm going into this abyss of paranoia. (Sighs) and it scares the hell out of me, because it's not me.
Rick: Taylor, you are a-a beautiful woman, a brilliant psychiatrist. You have so much to offer. I mean, this--this is supposed to be the--the happiest time of your life. You've given your husband the child he's always wanted.
Rick: For things to work out this way, it's--it's just not fair.
Taylor: No, no, it isn't. I'm just trying to cope as best I can.
Rick: Taylor, I don't mean to put any added pressure on you, but you need to get through this. There are people that depend on you to do that. And I want to help you.
Taylor: (Scoffs) it's my problem. I'll--I'll deal with it.
Rick: No, that--that's ridiculous. Listen, I want you to call me, all right? You need somebody to talk to, you know, with-- with what you're going through, and I want you to call me day or night. I don't care.
Taylor: I don't want to burden you with this.
Rick: No, I'm-- I'm telling you to do it. Don't think about my mom, okay? Don't look at me as--as my mother's son. Look at me as somebody who-- who's gonna be there for you, okay? Look, I'm not leaving here until you tell me okay.
Taylor: Okay. Thank you. (Sniffles)
Rick: I'll see ya, okay?
Taylor: (Sniffles) okay.
Nick: What brings you here?
Rick: I was, uh, just checking up on your wife and your son, making sure they were okay.
Nick: How they doing?
Rick: See for yourself. They're doing just fine.
Nick: Thanks for keeping an eye on 'em.
Rick: You got it. Take care.
Katie: You told Eric the truth about everything?
Donna: He knows the truth, that Stephanie is blackmailing me.
Katie: And he also knows--
Donna: Yes, yes, I told him about Storm, that he shot Stephanie.
Katie: Have you lost your mind? Did you once think about our brother? He is going to jail now, because of you. I mean, this is a disaster. As soon as Stephanie finds out about this, she is gonna go straight to Lt. Baker.
Donna: No, she's not gonna find out. It won't happen.
Donna: Eric is over there right now telling her that it's over between us, it's completely over.
Katie: So what? You're going to have an affair behind her back? That's your big plan? You don't think she's gonna figure that out?
Stephanie: I said if things don't work out with Donna, you could always come home, that I would never ask any questions, I would take you back no matter what.
Eric: I remember, yes.
Stephanie: Do you want to come back?
Eric: Would you have me back? I mean, after everything, you--you would have me back?
Stephanie: Will you come home, Eric?
Eric: Do you want me to?
Eric: Listen, listen to me now. I think-- I think we just have to wait.
Stephanie: Oh, yes. I-I mean--look, I-I don't want to rush things. I just thought that you, well, you know, why would I--
Eric: No, no, I want us-- I want us--I want to come back. I just don't want it to be so fast, and I want-- I want us to be careful, and--and for your sake, as well as mine.
Stephanie: Yes, okay. (Sighs)
Eric: And as far as Donna's concerned, I don't want you to mention her ever again. It's finished. It happened, and now it's finished. Don't mention her again.
Taylor: Mmm. (Chuckles) It feels so good to be here in your arms. Mmm, I wish this could last forever.
Nick: It's good to hear you like this.
Taylor: (Sighs) You know, when--when you're holding me like this, it's--it's like I know everything's gonna be okay.
Taylor: Listen, um, I was thinking of something. I have an idea.
Nick: Let's hear it.
Taylor: Well, since I'm doing so much better and, um, you know, I kind of want everybody to know that I'm doing better. I'd like everybody to see that I'm getting back to my old self.
Nick: Okay. What do you got in mind?
Taylor: (Exhales deeply) let's invite Ridge and Brooke to dinner.
Nick: Ridge and Brooke to dinner? Here?
Nick: It sounds like a nightmare.
Taylor: No, I'm trying to end the nightmare, okay? That's what I'm trying to do. And I think spending a little time together would--would make that happen. Don't you?
Nick: Well, I--
Taylor: So how about tomorrow night?
Nick: Tomorrow night?
Taylor: Mm-hmm. Thank you. Yeah, this is going to be a surprise for them, I think. Mm-hmm. I think it's going to be a very special surprise.
Donna: Look, I have to make sure that Stephanie took the bait. I'm calling over there.
Katie: I don't think that's such a good idea.
Donna: Look, I-I have to make sure she thinks I held up my end of the bargain.
Katie: What if she's already on to Eric?
Donna: That's what I have to find out, okay? I'll put her on speaker.
Donna: Stephanie, it's me. I did what you asked.
Donna: I gave in to your blackmail. I broke it off with Eric. Now I have to make sure you live up to your end of the promise-- that Storm is safe and that he's not going to jail.
Stephanie: Eric told me what you did. You kept your part of the bargain. I'm going to keep mine. Your brother is safe. He's not going to go to jail. But I don't want you to call or talk or see Eric ever.
Donna: Oh, my God. Katie, he did it. He pulled it off. I mean, Stephanie bought it hook, line and sinker, which means Storm is safe, and--and someday Eric and I can be together. It's all gonna work out perfectly.
Eric: You should have seen me. I was terrific.
Donna: I know. I just got off the phone with Stephanie. Oh, my God, you sold it. What number are you calling from? I don't recognize this.
Eric: Oh, it's-- it's a disposable phone. You just use it up and then toss it away.
Donna: So Stephanie doesn't get the bill, huh? Aren't you the smart one? Thank you. Thank you so much for doing this.
Eric: Listen, we'll--we'll-- we'll do this-- we'll do this for a few weeks, a-a few months if we have to, whatever it takes. Stephanie will not, uh-- she won't settle for a shell of a marriage. She won't.
Donna: (Sighs heavily) Oh, God, I love you. I love you so much, Eric.
Eric: Uh, yes, uh, grade-a silk, nothing less. That's absolutely right, noth--nothing less will do. All right.
(Knock on door)
Eric: All right, that's fine. Uh-huh. Good. I'll call, uh, I'll call you tomorrow. I'll--I'll--I'll see you-- I'll--I'll talk to you first thing in the morning. Bye.
Stephanie: I-I just wanted to tell you that I'm-- I'm so happy that you're home.
Stephanie: I love you, Eric. I always have, and I-I always will. But you know that, don't you?
Eric: Now look, um, I need to get some sleep. Been a long and trying day.
Stephanie: I'm sure it has been. Okay.
Stephanie: Good night.
Eric: (Whispers) Good night, Donna.
