Steffy: (Breathing heavily)
Steffy: I want you.
Katie: No, I-I-I can't. I c-I can't do this. I can't be Jack's godmother.
Bridget: (Scoffs) Why?
Katie: Because a-a-a godmother is supposed to protect a child. I-I don't know what my future holds. I might not even be around in a few years.
Bridget: Okay, you-- you can't live your life like that. No one knows if they'll be alive in a few years.
Katie: Well, I think your odds are a little bit better than mine. I can't do that to jack.
Bridget: I think you're wrong. I can't think of someone that would be a better influence on him than you.
Katie: Well, I can't be a good influence if I'm not around.
Bridget: Look, I mean, God forbid, if something were to happen to you, we'll cross that bridge then. I wish you would just agree with me. Taylor thinks that you're perfect.
Katie: Bridget, you've--you've done so many wonderful things for me, but you don't have to do this.
Bridget: I'm not doing it just for you. I-I think you're really good with and for jack. You are the perfect choice.
Katie: Stop saying that. Stop saying that I'm perfect. I'm not perfect.
Bridget: Well, you have been for me. I wouldn't be with my husband if it weren't for you.
Katie: Stop it. Just stop.
Marcus: No. Steffy, we can't, not until your family supports us.
Steffy: All I want is you. Look what--what we found, Marcus. I've never felt this way, ever.
Marcus: Me either. But I-I don't want to come between you and your dad.
Marcus: And I know you, Steffy. You're stubborn. You'll walk away from everything.
Steffy: For you I would.
Marcus: And then where would that end up, huh? We're so different, Steffy. I mean, baby, be honest. Realistically, where would this end? What kind of future do we really have together?
Steffy: Marcus, don't do this. We're here, now. I've wanted this for months. Haven't you?
Marcus: Oh, baby, since the first time I laid my eyes on you. Who would have thought when I came to L.A. That I'd meet my mom, get a great job and fall in love?
Steffy: Me, too.
Taylor: Mmm. Now I get it.
Rick: You get what?
Taylor: Mmm. Why you left me back there at Bridget's earlier. So you could be here waiting and ready for me.
Rick: You got me.
Bridget: Wh--what's going on with you, Katie? There's gotta be something else bothering you. I know you have a fear of dying right now, and I do understand that, but something else is going on with you.
Beth: Bridget, I know what Katie's feeling.
Bridget: You do?
Beth: Yes, I've been there. You don't know what to expect from life. Being a Godmother-- that's a big responsibility.
Bridget: Oh. I'm sorry, Grandma. I just really thought that... (sighs) she would want this. But Katie, I-I thought it would be good for you. I don't--I'm sorry.
Katie: It--it's just-- it's not that simple.
Bridget: But--but why not? People with heart transplants go on to live long, happy lives. Most of 'em do. And some of 'em have children.
Katie: Do you know that for sure? Do you think I could have a healthy child?
Bridget: Well, I-I would need to--to check the statistics and do a little research, but I'm almost certain--
Katie: No, no, no, forget it. Forg--forget I asked.
Bridget: Katie, I am certain that you will have your own happy family someday. And until then, you have the family you were born into, and you have me and Nick and Jack.
Beth: Bridget, honey, it's a-it's a big offer, and it's a lot to process. I think you just need to give your aunt a little time.
Bridget: Don't forget how much I love you, and I am here for you-- anything you need.
Katie: I know. I love you, too.
Bridget: I just feel like we're bonded. I do. I think we're bonded for life.
Katie: I really need to be by myself. I'm sorry. (Sniffles)
Bridget: O-okay. Um, well, please consider what I've said, and, really, please, give some thought to being Jack's Godmother. I think it would make Nick very happy for you to be a part of his child's life.
Beth: Bye, sweetheart.
Bridget: Bye, Grandma.
Katie: (Sniffles) (Sniffles) Oh, God, Mom, what am I gonna do? (Crying) What am I gonna do?
Rick: Mm. I have a fabulous idea.
Taylor: Mmm. I'm all ears.
Rick: How about a little mini getaway for you and me? They have these new cabanas at bikini beach. I checked 'em out.
Taylor: Hmm. Beach cabana, huh?
Rick: Mm-hmm. Yeah. No, listen to me. They're very private. It would be just you and me and the sound of the ocean in our ears. So I was thinking while Nick and Bridget have Jack, you know, we could get away.
Taylor: Yeah, when I dropped him off, he didn't even wake up.
Rick: See? Things are gonna work out. So this is our time, you know? We have... a little time to--to get away with each other. You need this.
Taylor: Because I need to get a grip?
Rick: No, I didn't say that.
Taylor: No, that's what you meant. That's exactly what you--yes.
Rick: I didn't say-- no--no. Listen. I didn't mean that what I meant was that I am in love with the most beautiful woman in the world. Look, I know things have been less than perfect lately. Jack hasn't been sleeping, so you haven't been sleeping. So like I said, while jack is away, you and I need to slip away and escape together. Even if it's only for a few hours. You know, we'll turn off our cell phones. We'll get away from the house, from the offices. I want you to put all of your thoughts and your worries out of your head and let me pamper you. That is my specialty, after all.
Taylor: Well, it's just one of your many specialties.
Bridget: Mm. How are ya?
Nick: Yeah, I guess you could say that. How are ya?
Bridget: Oh, I'm exhausted, actually. (Sighs) I went and asked Katie to be Jack's Godmother.
Nick: (Clears throat) You did?
Bridget: You won't believe this, but she turned me down.
Nick: Really? I thought we were gonna discuss this before you talked to her.
Bridget: I know, I know. I'm sorry, honey. I just--I needed to do it. I really felt like it was something I should go do.
Nick: Did she say why she didn't want to be Godmother?
Bridget: She claimed it's because she doesn't know how long she'll live. But I thought this would help her work through that, take the focus off of her and put it on Jack. I don't get it. She's acting so strange. I really believe she needs this.
Nick: Well, talking with her obviously didn't help.
Bridget: No, it hasn't... yet. I know that I couldn't get through to her, but I know someone who can.
Nick: And who's that?
Beth: Katie, you have got to get ahold of yourself.
Katie: Bridget is such a good person. She doesn't deserve this. I'm her family, for God's sake.
Beth: Nothing you did was intentional.
Katie: I'm pregnant with her husband's child. And now she wants me to be Godmother to his other child. I-I-she thinks I'm perfect.
Beth: You were at death's door.
Katie: That's no excuse. She trusted me. She encouraged us to spend time together. Why couldn't I have let that be enough? Why did I have to cross the line?
Beth: Honey, listen to me. You were extremely vulnerable. Neither you nor Nick intended to hurt Bridget, not in any way.
Katie: Well, it's all caught up to us now, hasn't it? How could I do this to Bridget? (Sniffles)
Marcus: You're in love with me?
Steffy: Couldn't you tell? I've been fighting it for weeks.
Steffy: I don't know. I guess I was just a little unsure... afraid.
Marcus: You know when you found out that Donna was my mom and you kept it a secret from your family...
Marcus: And you stood up for me? I couldn't believe it.
Steffy: I knew you were special.
Marcus: (Chuckles) So beautiful. My mother warned me about you-- "Don't fall in love with Ridge Forrester's daughter." But I can't help it, Steffy. I have.
Nick: Bridget, I can't get through to Katie any better than you.
Bridget: Yes, you can. You know her, and she will listen to you.
Nick: I don't feel comfortable with this. Jack has so many women around him now. Does he really need a Godmother?
Bridget: Don't you understand? This isn't about Jack. I know jack is fine. This is about Katie. She's stressing out over something, and I don't know what it is. But believe me, stressing out is not good for her heart. So just talk some sense into her... please. Will you do it for me?
Bridget: Thank you. Ohh, thank you so much. (Sighs heavily)
Katie: (Breathing heavily) What have I done? What have I done? (Crying) What have I done? I've destroyed my friend. I've destroyed my friend. (Sobbing) (Sniffles)
Katie: (Groans) (Gasping for breath)
Katie: Breathe. (Gasping) Breathe.
Steffy: Mmm. Are you okay?
Marcus: Yeah. Yeah, I'm good.
Steffy: Marcus, you know you can tell me anything.
Marcus: (Sighs) It's just that you stand to lose so much because of me.
Steffy: No, I don't.
Marcus: Yes, you do, Steffy. When your dad finds out, he'll fight to the end on this.
Steffy: Well, let him. It won't change a thing.
Marcus: No, see, that's-- yes, it will, Steffy. See, you think you can handle them, but he's gonna go to the mat on this.
Steffy: Can you just please, please forget about my dad? Think about me, about us. I need you. Marcus, I love you. If you love me, show me.
Nick: What's going on?
Katie: Nothing. I'm just--I'm a little upset.
Nick: Yeah, I see that.
Katie: God, Nick, what have I done?
Nick: What have you done? Well, first of all, you're not alone in this, so stop thinking that you are. And I don't remember you asking me to make love to you on that beach.
Katie: Oh, God. I-I should be so happy right now. I should be so excited. This is everything I've ever wanted. But this is my nightmare. This is gonna cause so much pain to everyone.
Nick: It hasn't caused anyone pain yet.
Katie: Nick, even if I lose this baby, Bridget's bound to find out.
Nick: I don't want you to talk like that. I don't want you to talk about losing the baby because you're gonna be fine... and this child's gonna be fine.
Katie: This is gonna break Bridget's heart. I'm gonna break Bridget's heart, this woman who has sacrificed so much for me.
Nick: Could I make a request?
Nick: I'd like you to try to hang onto what I said before, that this is gonna work out. I don't know how, but it will. We have faith in that.
Katie: You want to know what the worst part is?
Nick: I'd honestly rather hear the best part.
Katie: It's kind of the worst and the best part, I guess. The crazy thing is that this baby, our baby, exists against all odds. And I find that amazing. I mean, I-I-I wake up in the morning, and--and all I can think about is I'm gonna have a baby. And as guilty as I feel about what I've done and as much as I hate that it's gonna hurt Bridget, I don't regret it. I can't regret that I'm gonna have your child. I can't regret it.
