Brooke: Thank you. I thought it was adorable how excited Donna was once the minister pronounced them husband and wife. I've never seen her so happy. She waited a long time to be with a man like Eric. You know, my dad was right. The wedding was exactly what our family needed.
Ridge: Look, if we're gonna spend the rest of the evening talkin' about weddings, I vote we talk about ours.
Brooke: Oh. Well, that's a change.
Ridge: It's time, Logan.
Brooke: What happened to all your reservations?
Ridge: I guess you stopped spending every waking moment obsessing about another man's child.
Brooke: My mind has been elsewhere lately.
Ridge: I know. But even before this crisis with Katie and Storm, I felt like you were backing off. I just wanted to make sure you're, uh, not going anywhere.
Brooke: Are you sure you're not going anywhere?
Ridge: I am so sure I'll get down on my knees right now if that's what it takes to prove to you how serious I am. Logan, I love you. I'm as sure as I've ever been.
Brooke: (Laughs) You don't know how long I've waited to hear those words, how I've needed to hear those words.
Ridge: Would that be a yes? Mm.
Brooke: Mmm. What do you think, huh?
Ridge: I can't think right now, not when you kiss me like that.
Brooke: Why don't we start making plans for our wedding tonight, huh?
Ridge: Whatever you want, except--
Brooke: Except, "shut up, woman. I'm busy right now." (Giggling)
Ridge: We're not even married, and the woman's already puttin' words in my mouth.
Brooke: Okay, okay, tell me what it is you were gonna say.
Ridge: Just that I hope you weren't planning to make, uh, the wedding at my dad's with Donna there now.
Brooke: With Donna there where?
Ridge: Yeah, my--my dad's. It just wouldn't work for me.
Ridge: Isn't it obvious?
Brooke: It's obvious to me that you just insulted my sister.
Eric: All right.
Donna: Is that the last of the bubbly?
Eric: (Chuckles) there's more. Shall I open more?
Donna: No, no, no, no, this is perfect. I don't want to be tipsy on my wedding night. I want to remember every little last detail with my new husband.
Eric: So do I.
Eric: So is it my turn to make the toast?
Donna: No, no, no, it's mine.
Eric: To--oh, it's yours?
Eric: Oh, all right.
Donna: To me.
Eric: To you?
Donna: May I spend...
Donna: Every waking moment making you happier than you've ever been before.
Eric: Too late. You've already done that.
Donna: Well, then...
Donna: I'll do it until you just can't take it anymore.
Eric: That's fine. You can just torment me...
Eric: Until I can't take it anymore. Excellent idea.
Stephanie: The nurse said that it was all right to come in, that you were awake.
Katie: Not by choice.
Stephanie: Well, I won't stay long. I just, um, wanted to see how you were, and I thought I'd bring you some flowers from the wedding.
Stephanie: So how are you feeling?
Katie: How do you think I'm feeling?
Stephanie: I wouldn't have the slightest idea.
Katie: Okay, Stephanie, you might as well just say it. I begged you not to send Storm to prison, and this is what happened.
Stephanie: Well, what would be the point of saying that now?
Katie: Then why are you here?
Stephanie: That's a fair enough question. Um, may I sit down? I didn't, um, particularly want to go to... (clears throat) a bar and drown my sorrows in booze. And I didn't have a voodoo doll of your sister to stick pins in. I'm leaving that to my kids. I turned off my cell phone because I didn't want to talk to anybody, really. And then I... thought about you.
Katie: So you're here to call an impromptu meeting of the "shot by Storm" club?
Stephanie: Well, we do have that in common, don't we, along with a couple of broken hearts.
Ridge: Logan, you're overreacting here. That's not what I meant.
Brooke: (Sighs heavily)
Ridge: Look, I've never made it a secret how I felt about Dad going through with that divorce.
Brooke: Donna makes him happy.
Ridge: So did my mother.
Brooke: Oh, my God. You have selective memory, my dear.
Ridge: Okay, my dear-- at least that's a good sign. There are a lot of other things you might have called me.
Brooke: Infuriating comes to mind.
Ridge: Look, I'm just a little prickly now about my parents splitting up like that, okay? I'm sorry if that offends you. (Exhales deeply) I'm worried about my mother. She's not returning my calls. I don't--
Brooke: Well, she seemed fine when she left the wedding.
Ridge: Yeah, she's in a lot of pain. I just don't have a clue how to help her.
Brooke: Would you like to go find her?
Ridge: No, no, I expect she probably needs some time alone. You and I need some time alone, too. I'd say we're officially engaged, so we have some plans to make.
Brooke: Before we do that, there's something that I really need to do.
Brooke: (Sighs) Donna and I are trying to put together this memorial for Storm. He was cremated, but we just haven't had time to say our good-byes.
Ridge: Are you sure that's the way you want to go?
Brooke: Why wouldn't it be?
Ridge: Well, I don't know, just considering everything he did the last few months of his life.
Brooke: He was my brother.
Ridge: Yes, and he shot my mother, framed your father, stalked Ashley, went out and got a gun, which caused him to almost kill Katie, and then he shot himself. Now is that really something you want to honor with a tribute?
Donna: (Sighs) I still can't believe we're married. I mean, it's like-- it's like a dream, isn't it?
Eric: Yeah, it is.
Donna: But of course, it's old hat to you. I mean, this is my first-- no, make it my only wedding.
Eric: There you go. Exactly.
Donna: (Giggles) I mean, it was--it was perfect, every detail. Although I must admit I was on red alert all day.
Eric: Why is that?
Donna: Oh, I don't know.
Donna: I half expected Pam to pull a stunt or Thorne and Felicia...
Donna: Or Stephanie. I mean--
Eric: I have to say, I was very impressed with Stephanie's behavior. I think my ex-wife handled herself with grace and dignity.
Donna: Ex. (Giggles)
Katie: I can't fathom why you'd want to go to that wedding.
Stephanie: Oh, well, I was absolutely convinced my husband wasn't gonna go through with it. And then, damn it, he did. And now here I am all alone.
Katie: What does that have to do with me?
Stephanie: You're all alone, too, aren't you? Or am I wrong?
Katie: So you come bearing flowers, and you're think you're gonna, what, cheer me up? You shouldn't waste your time. Take 'em to the guy down the hall. He's been coughing all night.
Stephanie: Don't you think you should be happy that you're alive? You survived.
Katie: You're right, I should be happy, but I'm not. I'm lying here thinking that I am a bitter awful person because I don't think of my brother the way everybody wants me to-- as some kind of hero. I listen to that heart monitor, and with every beep, I become angrier and angrier. I don't understand why it's not my heart beating in my chest. I don't understand how Storm could have done something like this. I don't know how I could have been so stupid, trying to protect him after he shot you. He was a time bomb. Why didn't I see that?
Stephanie: Well, you're not a psychiatrist, are you? You were his sister. You loved your brother. You worshipped him your whole life. I don't know how you could have possibly seen it.
Katie: I rushed into a situation, I grabbed the gun, I got shot, and now my brother's dead, and it's my fault.
Eric: (Exhales deeply)
Eric: How come you're so quiet?
Donna: I-I just realized the first event I'll be hosting as your wife is my brother's funeral.
Donna: (Exhales deeply)
Eric: I assume that you and Brooke are gonna want to wait until Katie's released from the hospital, right?
Donna: I don't know, Eric. I mean, with her attitude--
Eric: Oh, no, no, you have to...
Donna: (Sighs heavily)
Eric: You have to remember that Katie's been through a huge emotional and physical trauma. You have to give her some time. She'll come around.
Donna: Maybe. Now not to change the subject, but, um, aren't we supposed to be having a special evening tonight?
Eric: What? Tonight?
Eric: Well, oh, yeah, that's right.
Donna: Well, why don't you go freshen up, and I will make a phone call. And when that's done, we can finally start focusing on what we're supposed to be doing on our wedding night.
Eric: Okay. And to that end, um, maybe I'll just wait for you in the shower.
Donna: You better.
Stephanie: Katie, stop this. There's more than enough guilt for everyone to share about your brother. It's not your fault. There was no way-- nobody could really understand or see how mentally disturbed he was until he took his own life.
Katie: My sisters call it his final gift, the ultimate sacrifice, proof of how much he loved me. I think it's sick. I can't stand it. People are acting like he's some kind of saint, like I should be grateful that he killed himself. What he did was wrong. Killing yourself is wrong. I don't care what the justification is. Storm should not have done that, not for me or anyone else.
Brooke: My brother is dead, Ridge, and I'm grieving. So please, try not to be so insensitive.
Ridge: You're right. Forget I said anything. Go ahead and have the service.
Brooke: Even after you declared it inappropriate? Yes, my brother had flaws. He wasn't the perfect person. And he made some terrible, terrible mistakes. But does that mean that it's in bad taste to celebrate what was good about his life? I don't care what you say. He was a good person. He was very intelligent, very loving, and he was my brother. I love him.
Ridge: (Sighs) I'm sorry. I'm sorry.
Ridge: I'm sorry. I shouldn't be saying these things about Storm. I should be trying to comfort you, relieve some of the stress. And here I am saying things that just make you feel bad. Can you forgive me?
Brooke: I want to.
Ridge: (Exhales deeply)
Ridge: (Sighs heavily) are we better?
Brooke: (Chuckles) well, that's the way it used to be, right? Every time we walked into the bedroom, our problems would just melt away.
Brooke: It's not that easy anymore, is it?
Ridge: We've come too far to let all that's happening sidetrack us now. We're gonna get through this. I love you. I love you so much.
Katie: I-I-I just don't know whose life I'm living. It doesn't feel like mine. Everything is different now. I just don't know what I have to live for. I will never forgive Storm for this. I will never forgive myself.
Stephanie: Would you like me to get that for you?
Katie: No. Hello.
Donna: Hi, sweetie, it's--it's me--Donna.
Katie: What's going on?
Donna: Um, you know, I just wanted you to know that I was thinking about you. I missed you at the wedding. I-it was beautiful. I'm--I'm really happy, Katie.
Katie: I'm glad everything worked out the way you and Eric wanted it to. Listen, I'm--I'm really tired. Is there anything else?
Donna: Yeah, yeah, just one--one thing, and--and I'll let you go. I just need your input.
Katie: On what?
Donna: Storm's memorial. We-we'd like to have it soon, but I-I don't know if you want us to wait till you get out of the hospital or--
Katie: You can have it whenever you want. I won't be there.
Donna: What? It-it's your brother's funeral. You can't just skip it, Katie.
Katie: I can, and I will.
Donna: What--wh-- what are you talking about? Wh-why are you doing this?
Katie: You don't want me there, Donna. The kind of eulogy I would give is not something you'd want to hear.
Donna: You know what? If this is how you're gonna be, I'm glad you're not coming. (Sighs)
Stephanie: You don't have to justify your feelings to anyone. They're your feelings.
Katie: I have loved Storm all my life. And now he's done this horrific, unbelievable thing. I can't see it as a blessing, no matter how much my sisters want me to.
Stephanie: Well, it's not up to them.
Katie: They've put him on this pedestal, and it's just wrong. To glorify suicide is wrong. This was a violent, violent act. Why does everyone have amnesia about that?
Stephanie: Well, I think it's-- it's just their way of not dealing with the situation.
Katie: They're planning this funeral. I won't be there. I won't go. I don't care if they hate me. And why should I? Why should I say good-bye to the brother who's supposedly going to be with me for the rest of my life? What kind of life will that be, Stephanie? I was a healthy active person. And now I'm going to be on anti-rejection drugs for the rest of my life. I-I may never have kids. Brooke and Donna see this as some kind of miracle ending, but it's not a miracle for me. I will be haunted by it forever. I've heard of people who, after they survive death, they have this new lease on life, they have this new purpose. Well, I am not one of those people. I'm angry that I've lost my brother. I probably will lose my sisters. And worst of all, I've lost myself. Aren't you happy you stopped by? I hope I was able to cheer you up. You found the one person in this world who actually feels worse than you do.
Stephanie: Well, there's a certain comfort in that.
Katie: (Sniffles) I just don't know how I'm gonna go on. I don't know how I'll ever accept this. I feel so empty. I'm alone. I'm--I'm all alone. (Sniffles)
Stephanie: Katie, you are not alone. You're not. There are a lot of people that love you, adore you. You're not alone.
