Nick: Hey.

Brooke: Any word?

Nick: No, not yet. Just stay patient.

Brooke: There's not much time.

Brooke: Are they gonna be able to keep her going until...

Bridget: We have-- we have everything we need.

Brooke: Storm's still in surgery.

Bridget: He won't be for very much longer, though.

(Telephone rings)

Woman: ...Please dial 1-1-3.

(Elevator bell dings)

Donna: Do you really have to be here?

Lt. Baker: Well, until we hear something about your brother's condition--

Donna: You saw him. What do you think the chances are of you hauling him off to jail?

Charlie: He took the coward's way out.

Donna: You don't know what you're talking about.

Woman: Dr. Jane Hamilton. Dr. Jane.

(Elevator bell dings)

Bridget: Have there been any messages?

Theresa: Bridget.

Bridget: Oh, Theresa, I'm so glad they contacted you. Um, let's go talk to my family.

Theresa: Okay.

Bridget: Mom, Donna, this is Theresa. She's here to talk to us about the organ donation.

Theresa: I know Dr. Brauer will want to speak with you, too.

Brooke: We can talk now. I have my-- my brother's... (sobs)

Bridget: (Sobbing) Mom.

Brooke: (Sobs)

Nick: Dr. Brauer is here.

Dr. Brauer: There wasn't much we could do for him. I'm very, very sorry.

Donna: He's gone?

Dr. Brauer: There's no brain wave activity. The ventilator is breathing for him right now, but once he's disconnected from that...

Brooke: How long before you know for sure?

Dr. Brauer: It's not like sleep. We call it "brain death." Your brother cannot recover.

Brooke: Thank you, doctor.

Brooke: (Sighs) my brother made his wishes clear. He wanted to be an organ donor.

Theresa: Thank you. I'll let the O.P.A. know.

Bridget: Oh, no, we don't have time to go through the registry.

Donna: No. Our--our sister Katie-- she, uh...

Brooke: She needs a heart, and Storm wanted her to have his.

Theresa: Did he--did he have an advance directive?

Brooke: No, but he has us, and we know what he intended.

Theresa: I'm afraid it's not that simple.

Bridget: But, Theresa, it is if we just let it be.

Nick: Doesn't the family have some say in this?

Theresa: It is legally possible, yes, for the family to designate what we call a-a directed donation.

Nick: This might be one of those times.

Theresa: There's only a one in four chance between siblings that the tissue will be a close enough match.

Brooke: Look, we already know it's a match. Storm did, too.

Bridget: The H.L.A. typing confirms that it's histocompatible.

Theresa: Who ordered this?

Bridget: A cardiovascular surgeon from the transplant center is--is on his way. (Voice cracking) Theresa, we have one patient that's on a heart-lung machine that's about to die, and another patient that we can't save that's... (sobs) he's got a-- he's got a working heart that's a perfect match. We can't lose them both.

Nick: It's quite a difference the way you'll remember your brother.

Brooke: (Sighs) I just keep wondering how he'll remember me. My last words...

Ridge: Brooke.

Brooke: (Sighs)

Ridge: How's Katie?

Nick: A lot's happened.

Ridge: The police came for Storm? It had to be done, Logan.

Brooke: Well, it doesn't matter now.

Nick: Excuse me.

Brooke: Katie's heart could not be saved.

Ashley: Brooke, I am so sorry.

Brooke: So Storm gave her his.

Brooke: The gun that he had-- he--he went into a room here, and-- and he... (sobs)

Doctor: People, let us reflect on what it is we are about to do. The heart is the nearest address we have for the human soul. When it stops, the soul is homeless, and it moves on. A man died so that this woman might live. Training, skill, experience cannot account for this mystery. We approach it with humility. We look to a guidance not our own.

Doctor: Potassium level?

Man: 6...

Doctor: Holding steady.

Man: Holding at 22.

Doctor: Good. Pressure's...

Dr. Brauer: I know you're waiting for word about Katie. It's a lengthy, complex surgery, and I have no news. But I can tell you that tonight or tomorrow, a half a dozen people are going to get a second chance at life or sight because of your brother, including, we hope, your sister.

Brooke: Thank you, doctor.

Donna: Would it be possible to--to see him before they take him away?

Ashley: You guys, there's something you should know. Um... (sniffles) Storm was trying to explain to me what happened the night that Stephanie was shot, and somehow he thought that by pulling out a gun that looked like the one that shot Stephanie would help me understand. (Sniffles) but what happened is that Katie saw the gun, and she jumped to the wrong conclusion, and she just-- she just rushed in. So if you're right, and Storm's intention was to take his own life so that he could give Katie his heart, then it wasn't atonement. There was nothing to atone for. (Voice cracks) it was a gift.

Woman: Oxygen saturation has fallen to 54, doctor.

Man: Potassium, 6.8.

Doctor: Up the oxygen.

Man: Pulmonary pressure holding steady.

Bridget: Sponges. I need more sponges.

Doctor: Does she have any history of renal disease?

Bridget: In childhood. Increase the diluent?

Doctor: Yes. Oh, we've got a bleeder here. I need suction immediately. I can't see what's going on.

Woman: Got it, doctor.

Doctor: More sponges.

(Monitor beeps)

Doctor: (Speaking indistinctly)

Man: 20 and falling.

Bridget: Doctor.

Doctor: I'm working as fast as I can, doctor.

(Telephone rings)

Woman: Dr. Savage, you have

a visitor in the main lobby.

Dr. Savage,

a visitor in the main lobby.

Brooke: Thank you.

Ridge: Any news?

Brooke: I was so terrible to him, Ridge. All I needed to say was that I need him, and he would be there, and then when he needed me to understand... (sighs) I was just so-- so scared and so angry. (Sighs) and he probably thought that Katie was the only one that mattered. Just Katie, not him.

Donna: Stormy? I know you're here. Nothing they took from you was you. I know you can't stay, although you'll try, for Katie. (Voice cracks) I hope you're not scared. (Sobs) God will understand.

Donna: (Sobs)

Donna: (Sobbing) God, please don't punish this man. Don't-- don't turn him away.

Donna: It's only because of him I know what your love is like.

Doctor: Anti.

Bridget: Clamps. Scissors, please.

Doctor: Dr. Forrester, nice work. That's good.

Woman: Greg Johnson,

please dial...

Greg Johnson... (telephone rings)

Donna: (Sniffles)

Brooke: You know where to find me.

Nick: Hey. How you doing? Anything I can do for you? Call your dad?

Donna: Um, I'll call him when I know what to tell him.

Nick: All right. What about Eric?

Donna: There's nothing really he can do.

Nick: He can help you through this.

Brooke: (Sobbing) (Sighs) this shouldn't have happened.

Brooke: (Sobs) a lifetime of things that shouldn't have happened.

Brooke: (Sobs) I was-- I was scared more than I was angry. We all were. Otherwise, I never would have said those things. (Sobs) can you forgive me?

Brooke: Did you die hating us, thinking that we hated you?

Brooke: No, I won't believe that. You did it for Katie. There's no other reason you'd want to leave us.

Brooke: But I need to know. I need to know for sure. Can you tell me?

Brooke: I know you're here, Storm, 'cause I can feel you. (Sobbing)

Brooke: I always asked so much of you. I'm sorry. (Sobs) I'm so sorry, but I love you. (Sobs) I love you so much, and I know that you love me.

Brooke: (Sobs) do you feel me loving you back?

Doctor: Kidney function?

Man: Renal's at 45.

Doctor: It may be time to let the family know.

Woman: Paging Dr. White.

Dr. White, call your office.

Dr. White, call your office.

Brooke: Bridget. (Sighs)

Bridget: It's done.

Brooke: And?

Bridget: Well, it's--it's al--it's almost done.

Nick: What does that mean, "almost done"?

Bridget: We have to get the heart started. Dr. Patrick is just gonna give it a small electric shock--

Donna: And then it-- then it'll start?

Bridget: We hope so.

Brooke: It will. It will.

Theresa: Bridget, I tried paging you.

Bridget: I'm sorry. I was--I was assisting.

Theresa: A nurse found this in the room where Mr. Logan was.

Bridget: Thank you, Theresa.

Theresa: Sure.

Ridge: What is it?

Bridget: It's a note that Storm left Katie. (Monitor beeping)

Dr. Patrick: All right, let's start defibrillation. Paddles, please.

Man: Paddles.

Dr. Patrick: Give me 250 joules.

Man: We're at 250.

Dr. Patrick: And clear.

(Monitor beeping)

Donna: Why is nothing happening?

Brooke: (Whispers) be with her.

(Monitor beeping)

Dr. Patrick: Increase it to 270 joules.

Man: We're at 270.

Dr. Patrick: And clear.

Brooke: (Whispers) please, forgive us.

Dr. Patrick: Get that suction, please. Thank you. Another sponge. Up it to 300.

Man: We're at 300.

Dr. Patrick: And clear.

(Monitor beeping)

Dr. Patrick: Give me a reading in ten minutes. Can you close?

Woman: Absolutely, doctor.

Woman: Wonderful work, doctor.

Dr. Patrick: I had help.

Woman: Sutures, please.

Donna: (Sobs)

Brooke: (Sighs)
