Taylor: Just answer me. Do you still love Brooke?
Nick: Taylor, it's not that simple.
Taylor: Please, don't do that. Just tell me the truth. Do you love her?
Nick: Yes. Yes, I still love her.
Rick: Hi, Mom.
Brooke: Oh, hi, honey. What brings you here?
Rick: I'm just waiting for you. Bridget was here, too, but she had to run to the hospital. We were talking about Baby Jack...
Rick: And how his arrival has affected so many lives, like yours, Taylor's, Nick's. You do know how I feel about the situation, that Baby Jack is the miracle that's gonna bring you and Nick back together again where you two belong.
Brooke: Rick, you must know how complicated this is. I have children.
Rick: Do you--I know. Thank you, Mom. Duh. But you know damn well that Nick loves Hope and R.J. As if--as if they were his own, and I think they're gonna be better off, because, Mom, they can-- they can feel-- they can see the love that you and Nick have for each other, and they're gonna be happier because they're gonna be in a happier home.
Brooke: I know why you're saying all of this.
Rick: Well, you're gonna be wrong. This has nothing to do with Ridge or--or my dislike for him. This has everything to do with the fact that--that the attraction between you and Nick is so damn strong. It's so obvious. Mom, you and Nick are-- you're meant for each other, and I know that he's still married to Taylor, but you must know deep down in your heart that he still loves you.
Brooke: Yes, I do. He just told me so.
Nick: I'm sorry if this hurts you. It's not what I intended, but James was right. He told me to be honest with myself about my feelings and then be honest with you about them.
Taylor: S-so it's true, then? You-- you still love her.
Nick: I'm not gonna deny that those feelings are there. Maybe they'll always be there, but I'm committed to you. I am committed to our life together, to Jack, to this family. And Brooke-- sh-she's not in my head. She won't be. I-I can get past that.
Taylor: No! No. I don't want to live like that. I don't. I-I don't want you to deny your feelings. I--I don't want you to bury your feelings. That's a recipe for disaster. Trust me. I know about that. (Sniffles)
Taylor: I cannot do it. I can't. I knew it. I knew. I could just-- I could feel it in the air. I could hear it in my head over and over again. That's all I've been thinking about. And if I don't deal with reality e way it is, then I will have a nervous breakdown. I will develop some kind of serious mental disorder.
Nick: Oh, honey, it's in your mind, like you said. In time, this will heal, and we'll get past all of this.
Taylor: No, because I can't do it again. I can't, Nick. (Sighs) I am never going to get control of my life as long as Brooke has control of your heart. I've already lived this nightmare once with Ridge, only to have him find some excuse to reject me, and I won't do it again.
Nick: Taylor, now I'm sorry that you were hurt before, but we're in today, now, this issue.
Taylor: I asked you to be honest with me, and you did. Thank you. Thank you for doing that. But, um, I think it's time for me to move on. I think-- I think we should go our separate ways.
Nick: You want to leave me?
Taylor: I know you tried. I know that. You've been... (sighs) you've been so wonderful and loving and attentive. Even after you found out that I couldn't even get pregnant with a child of my own... (sobs) you didn't care if you were gonna give up your dream of having your own child. You didn't care. You were willing to sacrifice that dream, and I guess that made me love you even more. (Sniffles) but I know you tried.
Nick: I'll continue to try, and I'll continue to stand by you forever.
Taylor: I want you to know that I love that baby. I love Jack. I love him so much, but James is right. (Voice cracking) I'm not getting any better, and I'm not going to get better until I get out of this situation.
Nick: Oh, Taylor...
Taylor: (Normal voice) I have to get out of this situation, and I-I was thinking about that, that maybe I could just, um-- I think I'm gonna go to my house in Bel Air and... (sniffles) and stay there. There's nobody living there right now.
Nick: Taylor, your home is here. Your home is here with me and Jack.
Taylor: Nick, I know you love me, and I know that you've been worried about me. You've been concerned, and that is not without good reason. I need to pull my life back together.
Nick: Taylor, don't. Now I am committed to you, and I will do anything it takes to work through this, but if you take that ring off... p-please, don't do it, please.
Taylor: I can't live in Brooke's shadow. I won't do it. It'll destroy me. I love you so much, I can let you go.
Nick: (Whispers) Honey...
Taylor: I need to do this for me.
Rick: Mom, what are you waiting for? If Nick just admitted to you that he still loves you, what the hell are you doing here? You gotta go to him, and you gotta make things right with him.
Brooke: I'm just not sure it would be right.
Brooke: Hello? What? Nick? Wait, wait, wait. Slow down. Say it again. Taylor moved out? She went back to her old place? Uh... (door slams)
Brooke: Are you there alone with Baby Jack?
Nick: I just can't believe it. I just never imagined she'd leave.
Brooke: Okay. Okay. Well, just stay right there. I'm coming over.
Rick: Taylor? You all right?
Taylor: Well, I don't-- I just came from talking to Nick.
Rick: What happened?
Taylor: It's over. I really think it's over.
Rick: I'm sorry.
Taylor: No, don't be. Um, it was something I did. It was the hardest thing I ever had to do, but, um, I did it. (Sniffles) I just feel so alone right now.
Rick: No, you're not alone. You're definitely not alone, okay? I'm here.
Taylor: I really don't know. I don't know what's wrong with me. I--something is terribly wrong. (Sniffles) I've been seeing things. I've been hearing things in my head and seeing your mother wherever I look. (Sighs) and a little earlier, James Warwick...
Taylor: My friend who's a psychiatrist came by and he found me, and I was just having a complete meltdown. And he talked to me, and he helped me see that really, it isn't even Brooke who's the problem. The crux of the problem really lies with Nick.
Rick: I'm sorry. I don't--I don't-- I don't follow. What do you mean?
Taylor: James had asked Nick a very serious question. He had asked him to think about where his feelings for Brooke really lie-- if he loves her still.
Rick: Oh. Oh. Well, um, I'm not--I'm not gonna guess what Nick's answer was. God. Taylor, that's just not fair. I'm sorry.
Taylor: No, I already knew it. Deep down inside, I knew it. You knew it. He was never really over her.
Rick: Well, look, if--if it's any consolation, I'm not taking any. I mean, seeing that you're-- you're suffering and all, it-- look, you did the right thing. You did the right thing. You moved out. You got away from Nick and from that situation, and--and it's good for you and--and for your psyche. And you--you-- you need to surround yourself with people who-- who support you and care about you-- people like me.
Taylor: (Laughs) that's very good advice. Thank you.
Rick: I know you're hurting, but you're not alone.
Taylor: No, and that's a very good thing because I don't do very well when I'm alone.
Taylor: Plus, I need somebody who understands me.
Nick: Shh. That's it. Hi.
Nick: I was trying to get him settled down for the night.
Brooke: Well, here, here, let me take him.
Brooke: (High-pitched voice) hi. How you doing? Good?
Nick: Well, he sure likes you.
Brooke: It's okay. Yeah?
Nick: Maybe it's a mother's touch, huh?
Brooke: (Laughs) (normal voice) What happened?
Nick: Taylor was here when I got back from the "Marlin." She was with James. He had told her what was going on.
Nick: I wanted to avoid the whole situation, but she pressed me. She wanted to know.
Brooke: (Sighing) Oh, Nick.
Nick: So I was honest with her, and I told her how I felt. I told her I was in love with you, and I probably always will be. She wouldn't let me apologize. She said it wasn't my fault, that we were just victims of very strange circumstances.
Brooke: Which is true.
Nick: She said that she felt it, that she knew in her heart that I always loved you. And that's what haunted her. That's what she just couldn't get past.
Brooke: I never wanted to do this to her.
Nick: Neither of us did.
Brooke: So she left?
Nick: She left because she felt it was her only choice.
Brooke: Well, what about Jack?
Brooke: Who's going to be a mother to Jack?
Taylor: (Sighs) I'm just so tired. I'm--I am so tired of competing with Brooke. I can't do it.
Rick: Taylor, I-I don't think you're--you're-- you're competing with her, but--
Taylor: Oh, no, that's-- that is all I have been doing my whole life. Everything good that's ever happened to me, I-I've--I've lost it to Brooke. (Scoffs) I mean, I'm--I'm-- I'm even afraid to get attached to people. I'm afraid to get attached to things for fear of losing them, and I don't know why. I don't know what's wrong with me. I don't-- I don't know why it is that I don't have whatever this--this is that Brooke has over men. I-I... (sobs) I mean, why? I mean... (sighs) Brooke leaves a man, and--and they pine away after her for-- and they want to be back with her again, and I-I don't know. I feel like such a damn loser. I am completely insecure.
Rick: No, no, no. No, Taylor, I don't--I don't--listen. I don't--I don't want you to feel insecure right now, okay?
Taylor: (Sniffles) but you--you would think that I'd have a little more confidence. I mean, I'm--I'm educated. I think I'm intelligent. I take good care of myself, but your mother has this whole image that she's a strong, sexy, beautiful, intelligent woman, that she's got it all.
Rick: Right. But you--you--you don't-- you don't think that you're all of those things, too?
Taylor: (Voice breaking) you don't understand. I've lost every man that I've ever cared about to your mother. I've lost two husbands!
Rick: Okay. Okay. Listen. Listen--listen to me, okay? Everything's gonna be okay.
Rick: Like I said before, I know you're hurting, but I'm here. I care about you.
Brooke: So who's going to be the mother to Jack?
Brooke: No. Nick, I can't. I-I can't. Ridge and I are planning a life together, and we're going to get married, and we're raising Hope and R.J. as a family. I-I mean, Jack could be a part of that, but I--
Nick: I want you to be a part of Jack's life. You're the mother of my son, and I happen to love you.
Nick: You are the biological mother of this boy. We are forever connected, Brooke. We share a son.
Brooke: I-I know. (Sighs) I-I just--I can't. (Sighs)
Nick: Why did you come over here tonight?
Nick: I asked you why you came over here tonight.
Nick: You came over here because you wanted to be with me and Jack, didn't you?
Brooke: Yes, but--
Nick: No buts. I've loved you since the first day I met you. Since the first time I laid eyes on you, I knew that I loved you, and that has just grown and gotten stronger from that day.
Nick: Can you tell me the same thing? Look at me. Can you tell me the same thing? Can you?
Brooke: Yes. Yes.
