Ridge: (Exhales deeply)
Taylor: I am so sorry you're having to go through this.
Ridge: It's just... too much. First Phoebe, then her sister? I've lost them both.
Taylor: Ridge, no, we will get through to Steffy. She's not lost to us. It's--it's not too late. Sweetheart, you're... (sighs) you're exhausted. You're--you're exhausted from grief. (Sighs) Brooke might not understand you, but--but I do. And I will help you get through this... okay?
Brooke: Just call me as soon as you get this. He's not picking up. It's his voicemail. (Sighs) God, what am I gonna do?
Rick: Well, listen, I don't want you to expect the worst right now.
Brooke: How can I not expect the worst? Ridge stormed out on me.
Rick: He's mad right now, but he needs some time to cool off. It'll be okay.
Brooke: And what if he doesn't take that time to cool off? Stephanie knew that my marriage was invalid. She was probably in on it with Pam. I can't risk her using that.
Rick: Where are you going?
Brooke: I'm gonna find Ridge before Stephanie gets to him. If she finds out about this, she's going to exploit it.
Stephanie: So, um... Eric asked me to come back to the company.
Pam: He did? Oh, Steph, that's so great. But he darn well should've, after everything that you did for him today. I am so happy for you.
Stephanie: (Chuckles) Don't get ahead of yourself. I turned him down. But I have to say, there was a certain satisfaction it gave me that he asked.
Pam: But who needs Eric Forrester now that you're flying high on your own?
Stephanie: It might have been worth watching Donna implode, though.
Pam: Or her implants explode. (Laughs) You know, I have a funny feeling, Steph, that the high and mighty Logan family is about to get what's comin' to 'em.
Stephanie: Well, as far as Brooke is concerned, it can't come fast enough. I just want Ridge to walk away from her and go back to Taylor. Taylor knows him. She understands him. She knows what he needs.
Taylor: Here. Chamomile.
Ridge: I really came unglued.
Taylor: Well, I think it's okay to come unglued, especially what you've been going through.
Ridge: That's just it. I thought the worst was over. When I see Rick walk in with our daughter, knowing that it was all just startin' over again, I couldn't take it, Doc. I'm tellin' ya, I just couldn't take it anymore.
Taylor: Ridge, who loves Steffy more than us? We're going to deal with this together, just the same way we got through what we dealt with with Thomas and how we got through those first horrific days of losing Phoebe. I promise, you are not alone in this.
Ridge: Brooke says she understands. But when I need her support the most, like today-- all she had to do was stand there and tell Rick just once-- tell him off just once because I needed her to do that, but she didn't do that. To be honest with you, Doc, I feel like Brooke betrayed me.
Ridge: (Sighs) Today when I showed up at Phoebe's grave, I was feeling so lost. I never expected to find you there. All I knew was I needed to be close to someone who would love me unconditionally. Thank you for bringing me here, away from everything. It's just what I needed.
Steffy: (Sighs) I've never seen my dad like this.
Rick: I've never seen my mom like this. I mean, she's really scared that she's lost Ridge.
Steffy: She may be right. We wanted to be honest and open about us being together, and now everything's blown up even worse than before.
Rick: Well, I caused this mess, and now I have to fix it.
Steffy: No. You heard Brooke. She doesn't want you going near my dad.
Rick: Look, my mom is only happy when she's with Ridge, whether I like that or not. And you hate it when your father and I are at swords' points. So somehow, some way, I have to make this right.
Steffy: You really have changed.
Rick: (Laughs) I'm working on it.
Steffy: What's wrong?
Rick: (Exhales deeply) We have an even bigger problem here. It's not just your father. Stephanie, your grandmother, hates you and I together more than anybody. And I know how she feels about my mother. So look, if she finds out that your dad walked out, she could really make a mess of things. I just hope she stays the hell out of this.
Stephanie: Well, what happened?
Taylor: Well, Rick and Steffy are seeing each other again.
Stephanie: He's chasing after her again, isn't he?
Taylor: Oh, and--and Ridge went absolutely ballistic, I'm telling you, and not just at Rick and Steffy, but at Brooke for--for supporting them.
Stephanie: She always chooses that kid. And yet at the same time, she manages to convince Ridge that it's never going to happen again.
Taylor: Well, it won't be happening this time. I took his cell phone, and I turned it off. I'm telling you, Stephanie, as fragile as he looked, he--I think even hearing the sound of Brooke’s voice could set him off.
Stephanie: I'm glad he's with you, because you understand exactly what he needs.
Taylor: Listen, I gotta go. (Whispers) Bye. (Normal voice) Need some help?
Ridge: No. I'm not that far gone, Doc. Whew. Thank you for bringing me here. I'm startin' to feel human again.
Taylor: Well, I told you those pills would help take the edge off.
Ridge: Well, I guess it's good to have a doctor in the family, huh? Whoo-hoo.
Ridge: Being here with you, that's helped the most.
Brooke: Eric, have you seen Ridge? I just checked his office, and--
Stephanie: He wasn't there.
Brooke: What are you doing in here?
Stephanie: Well, I'm not stealing Eric’s designs. That's your son's modus operandi.
Brooke: (Sighs) Have you seen Ridge?
Stephanie: Why? Are you having trouble keeping tabs on your husband?
Brooke: He's not technically my husband.
Stephanie: Oh, he told you.
Brooke: Yes, he did. And I'm surprised that you're not blogging about it on the Spencer web site and celebrating with your online following.
Stephanie: (Chuckles) You're so behind the times. But then when you get upset, your work ethic always flies out the window. So Rick-- Rick is causing problems, isn't he?
Brooke: (Sighs) Stay out of it.
Stephanie: He is, isn't he? And I would imagine that Ridge is probably relieved that he's not legally married to you.
Steffy: (Exhales deeply) Mom, it's me. I really need to talk to you about dad. He's really upset.
Taylor: I know. He's here with me right now.
Steffy: Oh, thank God. I was worried he might--
Taylor: Steffy, you know, I don't even know what you're thinking. What--how can you do this after everything your father's been through, after everything this whole family has been through? I don't even know how you can think about being with Rick.
Steffy: Okay, can you just listen to me for a second? Rick is in therapy. He is working hard to change. And he is determined to somehow make things right with dad.
Taylor: The only way he can do that is to stay away from you.
Steffy: Oh, don't say that.
Taylor: (Scoffs) Steffy, your father can't take any more, okay? You need to go to Rick. You need to tell him "no." And you need to end this relationship for good. Please, Steffy, this is killing your dad. I've gotta go.
Ridge: Hey, I put your keys back in your purse. And the, uh, car is safely stowed in the garage.
Taylor: Okay. Listen, I was thinking that, um, it might be a good idea if we stayed here for a couple of days or however long it takes you to feel better.
Ridge: I already am feeling better-- this place, the mountains, the fresh air. I feel like I can breathe again. That weight that was on my chest is gone. The clouds are parting. I feel like I can see the light.
Brooke: You know where Ridge is. You've spoken with him.
Stephanie: No, I have not spoken to my son, but I do think I know what's going on. Rick has gone after Steffy. And you have supported that relationship. And Ridge is angry, and he's walked out. The big difference now is you're not really married to him, and I think that has scared the holy bologna out of you. You know, it's interesting. When I told Taylor--
Brooke: You told Taylor that our marriage isn't valid?
Stephanie: What I find fascinating about this-- it was just a clerical error, and he chose not to rectify it. Why?
Brooke: (Laughs) Well, I'm sure you're about to tell me.
Stephanie: I think you were on probation, and I think you failed.
Taylor: How about something to eat? I'm not sure what's around here, but...
Ridge: No, I'm--I'm okay. I'm just concerned about our daughter, though.
Taylor: Steffy called while you were moving the car. She's very worried about you.
Ridge: But not worried enough to leave Rick? You know, if Brooke stood up to Rick when I asked her to, all this could've been avoided. I needed her to look her son in the eye and tell him that she would not endorse a relationship between him and our daughter. I needed her to realize that what she's doing is crushing me and our... marriage.
Ridge: I needed her to tell Rick that she supported me and not him. Just once I needed that from Brooke. But she couldn't say it. As much as I love her, after what happened today, there's a part of me that's actually... almost relieved that our marriage isn't legal.
Taylor: Ridge, I-I can't believe you really mean that.
Ridge: Maybe I do.
Rick: Come on, where's that beautiful smile of yours?
Steffy: (Scoffs) I wanted it to be different. You're different, and I see it. My parents would, too, if they'd just--
Rick: Okay, so things didn't turn out exactly...
Rick: The way we had planned. But we're not giving up.
Rick: (Laughs) We're gonna make this happen. We're gonna make believers out of them.
Brooke: So our marriage isn't legally valid. That doesn't mean that Ridge and I don't have a future. It's just a piece of paper. Ridge said so himself.
Stephanie: Well, I think that's how he felt before he found out you are going to support Rick and Steffy. Why'd you do that? I mean, don't you understand the anguish that this causes Ridge? You continually choose your son over your husband. That's so hurtful to him. Can't you see how upsetting it is? He sees this young man, who's responsible for Phoebe's death, going after his other daughter. And you support it.
(Cell phone rings)
Ridge: Mother, it's me. Something happened tonight.
Stephanie: I know.
Ridge: I'm at Big Bear with Taylor. Tell dad I-I need some time.
Ridge: And one more thing. If you see Brooke, tell her where I am. And she can call me if she wants, but just not now. I'm too upset with her.
Stephanie: I'll take care of everything. Good-bye, Ridge.
Brooke: That was Ridge? My God, Stephanie, why didn't you give me the phone?
Stephanie: He didn't want to talk to you.
Brooke: What did he say? Where is he? Is he all right?
Stephanie: He's upset. He's upset with you. He needs some time and space. He's gotta get his head together. Just leave him alone. My advice-- just let Ridge be what-- just let him be.
Ridge: It's in Brooke’s court. Who knows whether she'll call.
Taylor: No, I'm sure she'll call. But hopefully she'll give you a little more breathing room.
Ridge: Yeah, Brooke, her son, it's a downer. I'm puttin' the whole mess out of my mind. I'm so grateful to be away from all that.
Taylor: Mm, that's why I brought you here.
Ridge: It's workin', Doc.
Ridge: I trust you. That's why it's so easy when I'm with you. All this angst I've been living with for months-- it's gone, and I don't have to rack my brain trying to get you to understand how I feel. You already have. That understanding, you're there for me. Why am I just now realizing this? Maybe I've known it all along. I can always depend on you. I couldn't admit it because of what it would say about my marriage to Brooke.
Ridge: I believe we were meant to be together. I thought Brooke and I would be happy forever. But it hasn't been that way. It's been one problem after another. Well, I am worn out. It's not even legally a marriage. I don't really want to think about it. (Scoffs) I don't want to worry about it. I just want to feel some peace and calm in my life and live in the moment...
Ridge: This moment... with you, Doc.
