Donna: You don't mean that. You can't.
Katie: I do. How could Storm have done this?
Brooke: Honey, you've gotta calm down. This really isn't good for you.
Donna: You know, Brooke's right. You--you're just-- you're not thinking straight.
Brooke: They've got you pumped so full of painkillers and God knows what else.
Katie: I can't look at this as some kind of blessing. That's sick. This makes me sick.
Brooke: Okay, look, we really should go. You--you have got to rest.
Katie: Storm's dead, and we're supposed to be joyful. We're supposed to pretend that he didn't kill himself, that he hasn't condemned me to a life of pain and guilt and regret. He should have let me die. He should have let me die.
Stephanie: Was that Rick I saw driving away?
Eric: Yes, he stopped by to check up on me. He offered to be my best man.
Stephanie: Good. I'm glad you'll have someone to stand up for you.
Eric: We'll both have someone here supporting us.
Stephanie: It's gonna be quite a day-- the, um, end of one era, the beginning of another.
Stephanie: You thinking it's, uh, still going to happen tomorrow?
Eric: I'm gonna have to leave that up to my bride. If she wants to go ahead with the way things are planned or postpone, you know, I'll keep you apprised.
Stephanie: I've been wondering that perhaps I should attend. I do bear a certain amount of responsibility for what's going on here, what's happening.
Eric: Stephanie, we've been through all this.
Stephanie: Yes, I know, I know, but it just keeps going round and round in my mind if I had just turned Storm in to the police, this might not-- well, this whole thing might not have happened. And I can't help it. I feel guilty about it.
Donna: You have been through an ordeal, Katie. I-I get that, but--but your take on things-- it's--it's-- it's terribly distorted.
Brooke: At the very least, you're not really being fair to Storm. You're not trying to understand why he did what he did.
Katie: I know what he did.
Donna: He gave you a gift, Katie. He--he--he gave up his life so you could--
Katie: You act like his life was somehow disposable, like he was just a means to an end. You say you want to fight. You say you want me to fight, but Storm didn't stay and fight. Storm left. Storm's dead. Coward! (Crying)
Donna: How dare you say such horrible things. Storm acted out of love. And here you are condemning him, calling him a coward. The only reason you're alive is because of him.
Brooke: Donna, please, stop it. She can't handle this. She needs some rest, some peace.
Katie: Peace? (Crying)
Brooke: Honey, I'm sorry. The last thing we meant to do was to upset you.
Donna: I cannot deal with your attitude. I will not let you do this to our brother, who--who loved you, who raised you, who gave you the ultimate gift. He gave you his heart. He died so you could live.
Donna: It--it--it was an incredible, beautiful thing.
Katie: No, no, there is no beauty in this. There is no beauty. This act has killed everything that was ever beautiful. You can't ignore this horror just because you want to. You can't make this okay. I'm broken, and you can't put me back together again. You can't give me Storm's heart and just pretend like nothing else happened. Something happened. Something terrible happened. You call it a gift, but it's not. It's a curse.
Brooke: All right, all right, that is enough, both of you.
Katie: I shouldn't be living this life. This shouldn't be happening. I shouldn't be feeling this pain. I shouldn't have my brother's heart beating inside of me. This is wrong. This is wrong. (Crying)
Eric: It's not gonna be easy for me, you know, being in this house without you.
Stephanie: Something tells me your new wife is going to like it that way, though.
Eric: (Chuckles) Don't joke about it.
Stephanie: I didn't know I was.
Eric: Look, you stay. She and I will find a new place.
Eric: No, really, why don't you at least think about it?
Stephanie: Eric, it's a done deal. We've signed the papers. You've given me the money. It's in the bank. And I've told you this is what I want.
Eric: And you won't reconsider?
Stephanie: Do I get the feeling there's someone else in this room that's reconsidering? You know, I know you better than you know yourself. Are you having second thoughts?
Brooke: Honey, please, you're getting way too upset.
Katie: Look at me. My body has been ripped apart and stitched back together like Frankenstein, like something inhuman, like something unreal. Brooke, do you feel the same way Donna does-- that I'm cruel and ungrateful? Because of me, my brother committed suicide. Because of me. (Sobbing)
Brooke: I think it's important that you understand that Storm felt sorrow and regret and remorse. And he loved you so very much...
Brooke: That he gave his own life. But it wasn't suicide. It was gift. And that's how you need to look at this, Katie.
Brooke: Your heart-- your heart is a gift.
Katie: (Crying) No, you're wrong. You're wrong. You want me to feel the same way about this tragedy that you do. You want me to revere our brother who committed suicide.
Donna: Stop it. Just stop it! Stop calling it suicide. Are you so cold and so hard not to see that this-- this was an act of love?
Donna: You don't want me to call my brother a hero. Well, too bad. To me, our brother will always be a h--
Katie: He shot himself in the head. He blew his brains out. You can't call it anything else. You can't. You can't!
Donna: No, he--he killed himself to give life. That makes it completely different. It--it's a gift. It was--it was a gift.
Katie: You want to make this into something beautiful and wonderful, but it's ugly. It's hateful.
Donna: Sto--stop it! Stop it. I jus--I cannot listen to this anymore.
Katie: Fine, go. Go away, and leave me alone. Just go away. Go be happy. Go get married. Just leave me alone. (Crying)
Donna: So you want me to leave?
Katie: Yes, I do.
Brooke: (Sighs) Katie, you shouldn't be alone with these dark thoughts.
Katie: I'm gonna spend the rest of my life with my dark thoughts, Brooke, with this nightmare. Do you think that I will ever get the picture of Storm putting a gun to his head out of my mind? Will you?
Brooke: (Exhales deeply)
Katie: Maybe it won't matter. Maybe I won't be here.
Brooke: Don't say that. You're going to make it, Katie. You are.
Katie: And what kind of life will I have? I feel like I'm burning in hell inside and out. Every inch of my body is in pain.
Donna: Our brother gave up his life so you could live, and you've got a problem with that, and now you want us to feel guilty. Is that what you want?
Katie: (Moans) (sniffles)
Katie: I'm the villain. I'm the guilty one. I'm the reason Storm is gone and can't walk you down the aisle. You're right. I just want to take it all back.
Brooke: No one can do that. No one can change what is.
Katie: Just go away and leave me alone. (Sobbing) I don't exist anymore. I am the walking dead. I am an insult to life.
Brooke: Honey, we are your family. We want to help you heal. That is one way that we can keep Storm alive.
Katie: Mmm, stop. That is disgusting. I will not have you treating me like I'm the sacred vessel of our brother's heart. That's sick. That's the last thing I want.
Donna: I-I don't understand you. I-I can't help you. And I certainly cannot listen to this anymore. I'll go ahead with the wedding tomorrow because that's what it-- you seem to want. Good-bye. We'll miss you there.
Eric: A little late for me to be having second thoughts. Is that what you're saying.
Stephanie: Well, until you actually say "I do," you still have time.
Stephanie: Is that what you need, a little time to really think this through? You know, for the rest of your life is not just a fuzzy, far-off concept anymore, honey. At your age, it's here and now.
Eric: (Chuckles) (cell phone rings)
Eric: Excuse me. (Rings)
Donna: Hi. It's me.
Eric: Hey. So where are you? Are you still at the hospital?
Donna: I'm leaving now. Um, I was just with Katie. Eric, I-I think it's best if we--we go ahead with the wedding tomorrow. I love you so much.
Eric: Well, it's a done deal then. We're getting married tomorrow. I'll take care of everything.
Eric: I'm gonna miss your martinis.
Stephanie: You can invent a brand-new house drink.
Stephanie: Just don't put any maraschino cherries in it.
Eric: (Chuckles) Oh, right. You have my word.
Stephanie: Oh, forget what I just said. Absolutely ignore me. You're on our own from now on. You can eat and drink anything you want.
Eric: Well, if it's all the same to you, I'll stick with these.
Stephanie: A toast?
Stephanie: (Sighs) To our family. To more wonderful memories and bad ones.
Eric: Hear, hear. (Glasses clink)
Eric: Oh, my goodness.
Eric: You know, as, uh, as you step forward and take a new direction in life, you have a tendency to sort of look back and, uh, reflect. And I've been doing a lot of that lately.
Stephanie: I know. I've seen it in your eyes. You better get it all worked out before tomorrow, though.
Eric: That's right. I'm supposed to be the happy-go-lucky bridegroom.
Stephanie: (Laughs) You'll pull that off brilliantly. You've had quite a bit of experience at it.
Eric: Yeah, I have, haven't I?
Stephanie: Mm-hmm, more than most.
Eric: Listen, no matter what paths you and I take, um... I will always treasure you and all of our wonderful memories together.
Eric: I will always love you in my own way.
Donna: Tomorrow's my wedding day. I'll be the new Mrs. Eric Forrester.
Katie: You can go, too.
Brooke: You're not gonna get rid of me.
Katie: I would rather be alone.
Katie: I don't want to argue with you, Brooke. I've lost Storm, and I'm probably gonna lose you and Donna, as well. I've lost myself. Please, don't ask me again to see things the way you do. Don't ask me to be thankful for Storm's gift. I never will be. If I were you, I would just write me out of your lives.
Brooke: Look, I know that this is frustrating. And I know that you are living a medical nightmare. But I am not going to listen to you say that this is a life that's not worth living. Yes, something happened to you. Something changed your life. And you're gonna have to deal with physical and emotional challenges. And sure, that's gonna be really hard for you to cope with. But you know what? You have us. You have people around you who love you. And that right there is a reason to live. Katie, come on. You have to start looking at the things that you have, not at what you lost.
Katie: Those are pretty words, Brooke, but they're just words. I don't want to hear them. I will never be grateful. How can I be? To be grateful would mean that I'm grateful that our brother is dead by his own hand because of me. I can't-- I can't deal with this right now. I just--I can't accept it the way you want me to. So please, stop shoving it down my throat.
Brooke: Now you listen to me. You can be angry. You can be mad. You can feel robbed, or you can feel like this is a second lease on life. It is your choice. Do you really want to live with all of that negativity? Do you? Or do you want to embrace life and live it to the fullest with the heart that Storm has given you? It's all up to you. You have the choice. And I promise you, Katie, you will find happiness through acceptance and through forgiveness. Are you gonna be able to accept Storm's gift? Are you gonna be able to--to really forgive him for what he did?
Katie: No. No, I can't.
Brooke: Yes, you can. You can, and you will.
Katie: No, I can't, Brooke.
Brooke: You will.
Katie: I can't because I loved him so much. I still love him so much. I love the beautiful, strong, good person that he was, and I just-- I just want him back. (Crying) I just want him back. I want him with me, but not like this. Not like this, Brooke.
Katie: Not like this.
Brooke: I'm sorry.
Brooke: I'm so sorry.
