Bridget: Okay. Sweetheart, you--you fainted.
Katie: I fainted?
Bridget: Just w-w-wait. Take it easy. Take it easy. It's okay. Relax.
Brooke: Just stay-- stay right here.
Katie: Oh, I'm--I'm okay. I'm fine.
Bridget: You still feel light-headed, though, right?
Katie: I really hit the deck, didn't I?
Brooke: (Sighs) You sure you feel okay?
Katie: Yeah, I'm fine. Uh, I guess those candles freaked me out.
Bridget: Just a little too much excitement, huh?
Katie: Yeah, exactly.
Brooke: Do you want some water? You still look a little flushed.
Katie: No, I just... (moans) I'm just going to, uh, lay down for a little bit. Thank you for the party. I'm just tired.
Bridget: No, I think it's a really good idea. You get some rest.
Nick: You got her, Bridget?
Bridget: I got her, yeah. Slowly.
Katie: I'm okay.
Brooke: (Sighs) What's going on? Has this ever happened before?
Nick: No, not that I know of.
Stephanie: Oh, hi, honey.
Felicia: Hey. What are you doing here? Did you and Ridge have plans or something?
Stephanie: Mnh-mnh. Uh, he's actually on a conference call.
Felicia: With manila-- export problems.
Stephanie: (Chuckles) It's always something.
Felicia: Pam left for the day.
Stephanie: Oh, I didn't drop by to see anybody in particular.
Felicia: Is this about dad?
Stephanie: Is what about dad?
Felicia: Mom, come on. Don't pretend with me. Number one, you're really bad at it. And number two, the harder you try, the more worried I get. So what's going on?
Stephanie: (Laughs) Well, you know, it, um-- oh, I don't know. It always helps to have a new wife if you want to move on with your life. It's been easier for your dad doing that than it has been for me. (Scoffs) I just didn't want to go down and be alone at that little beach house.
Eric: Marcus is your son?
Donna: I realize that this is a shock, Eric.
Eric: A shock? It's like--it's like a prank. It's like a joke or something.
Eric: Did somebody talk you into this? Who talked you into this?
Donna: No, Eric, it's--it's not a joke. It's the truth.
Eric: Well, no offense, Marcus, but you're a little old to be her son. And you would--you would have to have been a child if--if--
Donna: I was. I was. I was a teenager, Eric. Storm and--and my mother and Aunt Bonnie-- they're the only ones who knew. I-I never told Brooke. I never told anyone. I never expected to see him again. And--and then this young man-- Marcus--he--he found me, Eric. He found me. Look, I know it's a shock, but... I have to tell you, I am so grateful that he did.
Nick: How is she?
Bridget: She's resting.
Brooke: Katie's just tired from the company. I mean, this isn't anything serious, is it? She's been through so much already.
Bridget: When d
Dr. Patrick came by earlier today, he wasn't coming by as a guest. (Exhales deeply)
Nick: Because she had her tests run this morning. Was it about the tests?
Bridget: Yes. He wanted to fill me in personally.
Brooke: Bridget, what is it?
Bridget: Mom, Katie's body is rejecting the new heart. It's not looking good.
Nick: Bridget, what's going on?
Brooke: It was a brother and a sister-- ideal conditions. There shouldn't be any rejection problems.
Bridget: There are a lot of variables that go into a transplant.
Nick: Well, what are you saying? That there's--there's no way to reverse this or--
Bridget: Honey, I know you want a miracle. We all want a miracle. But the markers that indicate her body is rejecting the heart are way up. We had every hope going in that this would work, but
Katie's body is just failing her.
Nick: Well, how long?
Bridget: There's no way to know. No one knows. A few weeks, maybe less. (Crying)
Brooke: Oh, my god.
Brooke: (Crying) Oh, my God. (Sobbing)
Felicia: I know this is really hard for you, mom.
Stephanie: You know what it is? I'm just-- I'm not used to living alone.
Felicia: You're also not used to a life of leisure.
Stephanie: (Laughs) That's true.
Felicia: Listen, I-I know you told dad that you don't want to work here anymore, but the truth is we need you. And I know that he would hire you back in a second. He would.
Stephanie: That isn't the answer to this.
Felicia: Why not?
Stephanie: Because I don't belong here anymore.
Felicia: Because of Donna?
Stephanie: No, it's because the company-- it's all changed. It's not the same. It's not the same as when your father and I were here and running it. I mean, I look back, and I think of all the good times we had, but--
Felicia: They were glorious, Mom.
Stephanie: Were is the key word--past tense.
Felicia: Bologna. You will always belong at Forrester. There will always be a place for you if you weren't so damn stubborn.
Stephanie: I'm not gonna change my mind, honey.
Felicia: I just hate seeing you so lost. It's breaking my heart.
Stephanie: Oh, stop. Now come on. You know one of the good things I've discovered about living by the ocean? (Inhales sharply) It's so big. (Laughs) it kind of puts certain things in perspective, makes you want to, um, you know, try and figure out where you fit in the scheme of things. You know what it is? I'm not sure where I fit anymore. I don't know what my purpose is now.
Eric: No, no. Donna, I don't believe this.
Donna: I couldn't believe it either when he first came here.
Eric: I mean, you would have to have been a child. I mean, a l--
Donna: I told you-- I-I told you, Eric, I was a teenager. And so was his father. Only I-I didn't tell him. I-I gave up the baby to--to a family that was thrilled to--to raise a child. But still Marcus-- Marcus always wondered about his birth mother, who she was, what she was like. And then one day he found the birth certificate. And he was born to a woman named Donna Logan at the same time, at the same hospital that I gave birth to my baby boy. Now do you believe me?
Eric: Marcus is your son?
Donna: I never expected to see him again, Eric.
Eric: And you want me to believe that you have a child you didn't tell me about?
Donna: Eric, it was so-- it was so long ago. I-I--
Eric: Well, Marcus, or whatever your name is, what do you want? Obviously, you want something because this is a scam.
Marcus: You think I'm lying?
Eric: I think you're lying. I don't believe a word you're saying.
Donna: Eric, I've seen the birth certificate.
Eric: My god.
Donna: Look, I know this is a shock, but he is the real thing.
Eric: She's no more your mother than I'm your father.
Donna: Darling, darling, you're wrong. St--
Eric: What did you-- did you come to the door, knock on the door here coming up with some kind of fantastic story you're gonna tell to the tabloids? Is that it?
Marcus: I already told my mother I wouldn't do that.
Eric: Oh, well, then what is it? Oh, I know. You want a check, don't you? You know, welcome to my world, Donna. When you're wealthy, people just come out of the woodwork wanting money. And this young man found out we were having a wedding here, and he--he saw an opportunity, maybe, to take advantage of a situation. You know what? My wife is a very trusting person. She wants to see the good in everybody. But I see who you are, and I want you out of my house. I want you out of this house now before I call the police.
Donna: No, Marcus, don't-- wait--Eric! My god, he's my son. This is real, Eric. This is--this is the truth. You have to accept this.
Eric: Accept it? You want me to accept this as the truth?
Eric: Well, there are certain things, Donna-- there are certain things that a woman tells a man before she marries him. And I would say this is one of them.
Donna: I know. I-I'm sorry. I-I should have told you. I sh--
Eric: My god, my family was right. My family's absolutely right. I should never have trusted you. I should never have trusted you. Well, I'm finished. Our marriage is over. That's it. I'm finished.
Donna: Well what?
Marcus: Did you tell him?
Donna: Uh, no, I-I haven't. I--he--he had to take a phone call. Look, Marcus, I-I'm beginning to think that this is a-a really bad idea.
Stephanie: (Sighs) (Chuckles) Look, when things don't turn out exactly as you expect them to, you just have to slow down, take stock and--and try and figure out how you got where you are.
Felicia: Is there some law that says you have to do it in isolation?
Stephanie: I don't write. I don't call.
Felicia: Mother, don't joke. (Sniffles) I can't stand the thought of you feeling so alone when you're not.
Stephanie: Stop. I know that you are here for me, you and your brothers and sisters, and I-I love you for that...
Stephanie: And I appreciate it, okay?
Felicia: (Exhales deeply)
Stephanie: I thought your father and I were gonna grow old together. And the fact that we're not going to do that is something I'm just having...
Felicia: Yes, you are.
Stephanie: A little difficulty accepting.
Felicia: Mother, you are. Believe me, he's gonna see sooner or later that phony for who she really is.
Stephanie: All right, enough now. I'm sorry. I didn't mean to put any of this on you, okay?
Felicia: No, mother, that's what I'm here for.
Stephanie: I know. And thank you... for listening. But remember, this, too, shall pass, okay?
Marcus: (Scoffs) So now you're not gonna go through with it?
Donna: Look, if I tell him now, I could lose him. Eric could divorce me, like you said, and it could all end up being a terrible mistake.
Eric: Donna, you here?
Eric: Hi. I'm sorry for the distraction.
Donna: It's--it's no problem.
Eric: (Sighs heavily) Uh, uh, Philippine customs is holding up a shipment of ours and a lot of red tape, and if Ridge doesn't get them to ease off, we aren't gonna have any silk for the--for the holiday line.
Donna: Yeah, I-I could see how that could distract you.
Eric: How's it possible I could be distracted from you?
Eric: Now what is it you wanted to tell me? It was something really important from your past, some kind of surprise that would, uh, be disturbing to me if I found out about it. Can you get up the courage to tell me what that is?
Donna: I, uh--
Eric: I cannot possibly think of anything that you had done in your past that would make me reconsider marrying you. What's going on with you, Donna? What is it?
Donna: (Scoffs) Y-you know what? It--it was nothing.
Eric: Well, it didn't seem like it was nothing.
Donna: Uhh, it was-- it was just me and, um, my insecurities.
Donna: It's silly. It's silly.
Donna: (Exhales deeply) Why don't you just, um, go help Ridge with this work emergency, and, um, I can get your full attention later.
Eric: Thank you. I will. I'll be back soon. It won't be long.
Donna: Okay. Drive safe.
Marcus: What happened? I thought you was gonna tell him.
Donna: I couldn't. I couldn't do it, Marcus. The timing is--it's all wrong.
Brooke: This can't be happening.
Nick: Shouldn't we be taking her to the hospital, do something to try to fix this?
Bridget: Oh, Nick, if there was something I could do to try to fix this, don't you think I would have done it? There's nothing else that can be done to make her body accept the heart.
Nick: Well, we can't lose her. We just can't!
Brooke: Katie was so happy at her party, with all the people around who love her so much, to help her celebrate this birthday and many birthdays to come. And yet that's not gonna be the case. How do we do this? How do we explain to Katie that she may not have a future? .
Marcus: So it's just timing? That's the only reason you're keeping the secret?
Donna: Don't you know this is killing me-- keeping this inside? I want the whole w-world to know you're my son.
Donna: Please, you have to understand. I just--I just got married, and he and his wife were together for decades. And their family hates me, Marcus. They hate me with a passion. And this--this kind of secret-- it's exactly the kind of ammunition they have been praying for. Look, if I blurt out the truth and tell him that I had a child out of wedlock as a teenager, Eric will feel betrayed that I didn't tell him. And then--then once the word gets out, the press--the press will--will have a field day, and I will be publicly disgraced. And then his ex-wife Stephanie will--will come back and use this against me.
Marcus: But if nobody ever knows about me, if the secret doesn't get out, then you're in the clear. No messy secrets, no skeletons in the closet. Okay, I get it.
Donna: No, no, please, don't. Don't go.
Marcus: This isn't working for me anymore.
Donna: Marcus, I love my husband,
Donna: But I love you, too.
Donna: I-I don't want to lose either of you.
Marcus: I think you already made your choice.
Donna: No, no, it can't end like this. It can't. We have to figure out how to make this work.
Bridget: I don't know how we're gonna tell her, but I know that she has to be told.
Nick: I don't necessarily believe that.
Bridget: Well, of course, she does, Nick. What are we gonna do? Lie? She'll see right through that.
Nick: Well, maybe she won't. Who says that she has to realize this? Maybe she'll fight harder. Maybe she'll live longer.
Bridget: Honey, this isn't about attitude or psychology. This is a fact. It can't be changed.
Katie: What's a fact?
Brooke: (Sighs) We were--we were just talking.
Katie: I'm surprised you're still here.
Nick: What are you doing out of bed, young lady?
Katie: I fainted. It's not like I dropped dead on the living room floor. What? Was it something I said?
Bridget: Sweetheart, you're--you're still not looking like you feel that great. Why don't we just talk about all this in the morning?
Katie: No, I think we should talk about it now. I think that you should tell me what's going on and what you're keeping from me.
Brooke: Bridget's right. Let's just pick this up in the morning, okay?
Katie: Why are you so upset? Brooke, what's going on? What--is it bad news? Why did Dr. Patrick stop by and not stay? He got the test results back, didn't he? What did they say? Or do I already know?
Bridget: Katie, listen. I--
Katie: The antirejection drugs aren't working, are they? That's why I feel so lousy.
Katie: I'm not gonna survive this? Bridget?
Bridget: (Exhales deeply)
Katie: Brooke? Nick, will somebody please say something?
Katie: Am I gonna die? Bridget? Am I gonna die?
