Steffy: Even though I would have been proud of you if you'd gone into the Army, I would've missed you like crazy.
Steffy: But it doesn't change a thing. We still can't be together, not until you come to terms with my dad.
Rick: (Sighs) Look, you know that I would do anything for you, right? But what you're asking me to do, Steffy, is just--it's crazy!
Steffy: It's the only way we can have a future together.
Rick: Your father thinks that I'm the devil.
Steffy: Okay. (Sighs) But don't you see that I just--
Rick: Listen. Listen to me. Listen to me. I tried. I've tried over and over again. It doesn't work. The one thing your father wants in this world is for me to stay as far away from you as humanly possible.
Jackie: I will not allow it. I will not allow this wedding to take place.
Beth: And who are you to say?
Jackie: I know my son, and this is not the life he wants.
Nick: Mother, you're going about this the wrong way.
Minister: I'm sorry. I just arrived at your front door when she, uh, came--
Jackie: I was not invited, all right? So I had to take matters into my own hands, and that's what I'm doing.
Katie: You weren't invited, Jackie, for a reason, which you're proving right now.
Jackie: What I'm proving is that this relationship is based on false hope. My son found himself in the middle of a life-and-death situation, and he did what any noble man would do. He gave you your last dying wish.
Katie: For God's sake.
Nick: Oh, okay, that's enough, Mother. That's enough!
Jackie: He was in love with Bridget when he took you to that island, and he was in love with Bridget when he returned, and if anyone dare say I'm wrong, you better speak now.
Nick: (Clears throat) I don't know why we're complicating this situation. I really don't.
Katie: All right. All right, wait a second. Bridget, is that why you're here?
Bridget: Katie, this is just your special day with Nick. I'm--
Katie: Oh, thanks. Thanks. You're right. It is my day with Nick. It's a day that came about because of genuine feelings, feelings that I will not second guess or apologize to anyone for, especially you, Jackie.
Rick: I just thought I had the answers, you know? I-I-I would join the military. I would impress your father. He--he would see that I could change, and he would-- he would see me differently.
Steffy: Well, maybe he will.
Rick: Well, I was rejected by the Army, Steffy. It--
Steffy: I'm glad they rejected you.
Ridge: Look at him in that getup.
Man: You want to go get...
Ridge: And she's falling for it.
Rick: I know you may not believe me right now, and I-I get that. I understand that. What's important is that I believe me. I'm gonna be the perfect man for you.
Steffy: No. No. You have to leave. If--if my dad sees us like this--
Rick: Ahh, yes, your dad. It always comes down to your father, the one person who's standing in our way.
Steffy: He's so afraid. And it scares me sometimes. Come on, everything he says has a weird way of coming true. When we were in the car, when my dad was chasing after us, and you almost crashed-- the same way Phoebe died.
Rick: Steffy, I wouldn't have been driving that fast if he wasn't chasing us to try to kill me.
Steffy: (Scoffs) And if Phoebe wasn't in your car, she'd still be alive.
Steffy: So many "ifs," and yet so many similarities.
Steffy: At least, that's how my dad sees it.
Rick: Is that how you see it?
Steffy: (Sighs) I don't want to. But whenever we try to be together, something bad happens, and--and that's what freaks out my dad, and when I think about it-- the stress he's under. My God. If something were to happen to him, I'd just-- I'd-- (sighs) that's why this has to end. So please, please don't do this to me. This hurts me more when you're here.
Steffy: Don't. (Sighs) Please, plea-- please don't do this to me.
Steffy: (Whispers) Please. Please don't. (Indistinct conversations) (stairwell door opens)
Jackie: Look, I know that your feelings are true and genuine, but they come from a deceitful, dishonest place that only a woman knows.
Nick: Oh! Mother!
Bridget: Katie, please understand that I have put you and--and Nick behind me, and you're of absolutely no concern.
Minister: Could somebody help me?
Nick: I was about to ask the same thing.
Jackie: Bridget, would you please be honest? You have not put this behind you, and you have every right to blame her for absolutely everything.
Beth: No, she doesn't. If you recall, Nick and Bridget have been married before. And unfortunately, it was a match proven not to work.
Jackie: It worked very well until a certain someone decided to play upon the sympathetic side of my son's heart...
Jackie: A heart that was then seduced and stolen by a dying woman's pathetic plea.
Katie: How dare you?
Bridget: No! Wait a second, Katie. How dare you? How dare you? I trusted you. I trusted you, and you took advantage of that. So actually, Jackie, you're right. I haven't gotten over this at all. I was just repressing those feelings which are... (inhales deeply) incredibly painful for me. I was repressing them for your big celebration day, right, Nick? Guess I'm not as good at that as I thought I was.
Katie: We've talked about this over and over again. I don't know what more you want me to say.
Bridget: Oh, we have talked about it. So what, Katie? My patience is beginning to wane, because you keep pushing my buttons.
Nick: Oh--oh, uh, girls. Ladies, could we just maybe take our buttons to a-a neutral corner, please, for now?
Katie: I'm not feeling very well. I'm gonna go upstairs.
Beth: And I'm going with her.
(Knocking on door)
Brooke: Come in.
Steffy: Hey. Dad around?
Steffy: (Sighs) oh.
Brooke: So I guess you've heard about Rick. He's joining the service. Can you believe it?
Steffy: It didn't work out.
Brooke: What do you mean?
Steffy: They wouldn't take him because of the injury from the fall.
Brooke: (Laughs) Oh, I-I-I must say, I am relieved.
Steffy: Well, he wanted to serve his country. You know, that's important to him, but personally, I don't know. I just feel that I--
Brooke: You're glad that he was rejected.
Steffy: Pretty selfish, huh?
Brooke: No. Your father... (sighs) actually thought that this might happen, that he wouldn't be accepted because of that injury, his past medical history.
Steffy: Wow, and he thinks Rick knew that, right? (Sighs)
Brooke: He's convinced that Rick was grandstanding.
Steffy: Who do you believe?
Brooke: I believe that Rick really has changed. I think he wanted to serve his country, because he wanted to become a better person.
Steffy: Yeah, I believe that, too. Not that Dad ever will. (Sighs)
Ridge: I told you to stay away from her.
Rick: Were you spying on us?
Ridge: What's it gonna take? Because I am gonna stop you.
Rick: I had to tell her something, Ridge.
Ridge: Let me guess-- that you were doing the noble thing by joining the military.
Ridge: Brooke told me. I didn't believe her, because you don't have the guts.
Rick: A few weeks ago, yeah, that would have been true.
Ridge: You have no intention of going in, and you know it.
Rick: Despite what you may believe, I had every intention of going in. I need the military, okay? I need the focus. I need the discipline. It would make me a better person.
Ridge: (Laughs) Really?
Ridge: So when do you leave?
Rick: There was a slight issue with my deployment.
Ridge: And what might that be?
Rick: Do you remember when you pushed me off the building? I fell, and I was paralyzed? Because of that, I cannot serve my country.
Ridge: And that didn't occur to you at all when you walked into that recruitment office?
Rick: No, Ridge, it didn't, okay?
Ridge: Oh, the hell it didn't. This is all a ploy, Rick.
Ridge: Trying to take the heat off and maybe impress Steffy.
Rick: I would have served my country. I would have served proudly. But once again, you messed all that up.
Brooke: How did the two of you leave things?
Steffy: (Sighs) I told him he had to go, that I can't be with him. It's too painful.
Brooke: (Sighs) You saw him at the house?
Steffy: No. No, h-he was here.
Brooke: He was here? In the building?
Steffy: Mm-hmm, yeah.
Brooke: How long ago?
Steffy: Just before I came to see you.
Brooke: Did you see your father?
Steffy: No. Should I have?
Brooke: He was here with me before he decided to go down and see you.
Brooke: Apparently when you were downstairs talking with Rick.
Steffy: What? Wha--oh, my go-- oh, my God.
Ridge: So it's my fault you couldn't join the Army? You used that injury. You had no intention of going into the Army.
Rick: Ridge, that is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard.
Ridge: You walked into that recruiting office knowing damn well there was no way they were gonna take you.
Rick: Are you listening to yourself? That's insane.
Ridge: Then you cashed it in, Rick. You told your dad. You told your mom. You told Steffy about all your great aspirations to serve your country. You know how sick that is?
Rick: Why do you do this? Why do you do this all the time? Why can't you, for once, just give me the benefit of the doubt? Why do you always see the worst of me?
Ridge: Because your actions speak the worst of you, Rick. You don't do anything without some ulterior motive.
Rick: All right, yeah. I'm done here. I'm not gonna listen to this anymore.
Ridge: I haven't even begun with you.
Rick: Get your hand off of me.
Ridge: How many times have I told you to stay away from Steffy? 10? 20? 50 times? But you don't listen. You just don't respect what I say. What do I have to do? Rip your head off? Well, I'll do that in a heartbeat, Rick, if it means keeping my second daughter from being killed by you.
Rick: I said, "Get your hand off of me."
Nick: What just happened?
Jackie: Well, it's simple, really. The truth was told. The wedding is off.
Minister: The wedding isn't happening?
Nick: It is.
Jackie: It's not.
Bridget: You might just want to listen to her.
Nick: No, because she's stubborn, she's narrow-minded, and she's bullheaded.
Jackie: And I know you, and I know that you are not totally in love with Katie. And you know what I have said is the truth. Look, I am only here to give you my complete and unconditional love. You're my son, for God's sake. I want what's best for you. (Sighs) and marrying Katie is a mistake.
Minister: Perhaps I should leave if there isn't going to be a ceremony.
Nick: You're not going anywhere, because there will be a ceremony, and there will be vows. This is not unconditional love, mother. What you're doing is controlling and manipulative. Now when Katie comes back down these stairs, you will give us your blessing, and you will give it lovingly.
Jackie: Katie, I would like to extend an apology. It was rude of me to barge in like this on such a special occasion. I-it's just that when it comes to my son, I sometimes get carried away. I-I didn't mean--
Katie: Is this a joke? I mean, she's kidding, right?
Bridget: Uh, ka--I-- I would also-- (sighs) I'm sure I was, um, out of line, as well.
Katie: (Sighs) Well, I think there is one thing we can all agree on, and that is this is not the day... (sighs) that I envisioned for the two of us, and it's certainly not a day that I want to remember for the rest of my life, so I guess you both accomplished what you wanted to. And if you don't mind, I'd like to talk to Nick alone, so...
Beth: Sweetheart, if there's anything that I can do--
Katie: No, I-I'm fine. I'm good.
Beth: All right. (Sighs)
Minister: Call me if you need me.
Nick: I will. Thanks.
Katie: (Sighs) That was a disaster. (Laughs) (sniffles) I wanted so much to marry you today. I wanted so much to make love to you tonight as your wife, and it's just not gonna happen.
Nick: I still want that. That's what I want.
Katie: You know, what--what Bridget and your mom said-- it--they were kind of right.
Nick: No. No, Katie. They were wrong. They were wrong.
Katie: No, what happened between us-- what happened between us, Nick, was something that I wanted, something that I needed. I destroyed your marriage to Bridget. I know that. (Sighs)
Katie: I love you. I really do. But I don't know what to do with this. I just don't know what to do. (Sniffles)
Steffy: Jake, you were in the shipping office when I left. Did you see anything by any chance?
Jake: Like what?
Brooke: Was Ridge around anywhere?
Jake: Uh, yeah, actually he was. I saw him near the office door looking through the window.
Brooke: Then what happened?
Jake: Well, you know, actually, it was strange. I-I, uh, saw this guy wearing, like, military clothes. And I-I couldn't see him from the front, so I didn't recognize him. Anyway, uh, I--he slipped into the stairwell.
Steffy: (Clears throat) Uh, did my dad see him?
Jake: Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, I think, in fact, he followed him.
Brooke: Well, thanks, Jake. That's all I needed to know.
Jake: Okay, yeah. You got it.
Steffy: That was Rick.
Brooke: (Sighs) We have to find those two before something terrible happens.
Rick: You are not the only one in pain.
Ridge: Oh, don't you dare compare your loss to mine.
Rick: Why not? You keep reminding me that I'm the reason why Phoebe is gone. Do you have any idea how that makes me feel?
Ridge: I lost a daughter. You lost nothing.
Ridge: You used her against me.
Rick: You are feeding this obsession of yours, Ridge. You think that I'm sick? You're sick. You keep saying that I used phoebe. I didn't use her. I tried to stay the hell away from her.
Ridge: Oh, don't even start with that. You brought this all on--
Rick: I brought nothing on. Listen to me. I brought nothing on. But you don't believe me. (Laughs) you--you've never believed a damn word I've ever said, and you still don't. You think I'm some loser, Ridge, so what does that make you? God's gift to women? To this company? To the family? I am so sick of that. Do you have any idea what my life would be like without you in it? My father would respect me. My mother would be eternally happy, and Steffy and I would be together. That's right, you heard me. Steffy and I would be together. In fact, we will be together. She will be mine, and there's not a damn thing that you can do about that.
Rick: (Grunts) (Straining) I got you.
Ridge: Pull me up. (Grunts)
Rick: (Groans) My God!
Ridge: Pull me up, Rick.
