Taylor: Oh, how's it going down at the pool? You and your sister need a little help?

Thomas: It's a family barbecue, not a state dinner. I think we got it covered. Besides, how many people does it take to light a grill? Unless you don't trust me with lighter fluid.

Taylor: Hah.

Thomas: I'm sorry. That's nothing to joke about. It's just our family's been going through one thing after another, and now that Dad's back, it kind of feels like that's all changing.

Taylor: I know, sweetheart. As wonderful as it is having your father here with us, I just don't want you thinking that it's permanent. I don't want us to get our hopes up.

Ridge: Hey, kiddo, what ya doing?

Steffy: Hey, Dad, you're home. I thought you were gonna come a little later.

Ridge: Well, I was under strict orders from my beautiful daughter not to be late.

Steffy: Well, do you remember this? Phoebe wouldn't let you fire up the grill without it. Huh?

Ridge: Yeah. Maybe I'll put that on now.

Steffy: No, no, no. Um, we are not quite ready yet. So how was work?

Ridge: (Scoffs)

Steffy: Or shouldn't I ask?

Ridge: Well, Forrester has definitely seen better days. Sales are lousy. Thorne and Felicia are leaving.

Steffy: What?

Ridge: If that's not bad enough, Brooke’s taking a leave of absence, too.

Steffy: Wait, Brooke’s leaving the company?

Ridge: She calls it a leave of absence, but I think it's just too painful for her, both of us.

Steffy: Dad. Dad, I'm so, so sorry. I-I know how much you loved Brooke, and--and you still do. I-- but it was never gonna work. I mean, how could it? After everything that's happened, I--

Nick: Get me Bill Spencer on the phone pronto.

Bridget: Honey, I don't know if it's gonna do much good because "B.H. Style" is already on the newsstands.

Nick: (Clears throat) How did they get these photos to begin with? You think there were photographers hiding behind palm trees? I don't think so. I think they were invited.

Bridget: Well, maybe your mother just wanted to show the world that she's in love.

Nick: No, that's not it. It's the smooth-talking, ab-crunching boy toy that's talked her into making the biggest mistake of her life.

Bridget: Well, you do have to admit, she does look radiant.

Nick: Radiant? Bridget, that's not radiant. She was plied with Mai Tais. That's drunk. That's he--how he pulled this whole thing off.

Bridget: Well, I mean, however it happened, the press is definitely having a field day. Listen to this-- "So now the reader knows how Jackie M. keeps her designs so young and tantalizing, and with their Hawaiian nuptials, her studly chief of staff will forever be known as 'Mr. Jackie M.' Rumors are buzzing of fresh conflict at Forrester Creations. Can the newly married cougar and her sexy cub become the new fashion powerhouse in Los Angeles?" Wow.

Nick: (Sighs)

Bridget: "With the help of son Dominick, his bride Bridget, not to mention the partnership with grande dame Stephanie Forrester, only time will tell, but our money is definitely on Jac--"

Jackie: Aloha, Bridget! Aloha, Nicky. Oh, what gorgeous flowers. Who are they from?

Jackie: Oh, Bill Spencer congratulating me. How sw--

Nick: He should be sending his condolences. (Clears throat) Mother, would you just answer one question for me? Did you plan this eloping thing after you knew I was gonna be out of town, or did "meathead" do this all on his own?

Jackie: Actually, darling, that is two questions, the second of which is too insulting to answer. But, no, I did not plan on eloping. I felt in the moment. I felt--

Nick: I know what you felt. You felt Mai Tais, 'cause I saw the bar bill. Bridget and I were in Hawaii, too, celebrating our honeymoon. Did you know that?

Jackie: Oh, you were?

Nick: It doesn't matter. The point is, he took you down there, got you loaded so you could slur your "I dos."

Owen: Hey, now, come on. Is that any way to talk about your new stepfather? Oh, hell, you know what? We're family now. Call me "Dad."

Owen: I'm joking!

Bridget: Nick, don't, please, honey.

Nick: Give me one reason I shouldn't kill him. Tell me.

Bridget: Oh, besides the obvious?

Owen: Oh, come on. Bridget's right, man. We're family now, the four of us. It's about acceptance, and it's about getting along.

Nick: Okay, the four of us. (Clears throat) I told you when I got back that you would be gone. Now I don't care what happened in Hawaii, "flipper." Time's up. You're done here. Finished, finito, gone!

Owen: What do you say, Mrs. Knight? Are you through with me?

Nick: (Clears throat) Mother, my office. Pronto!

Jackie: (Mouthing words) (Sighs)

Thomas: Mom, I'm not a kid. Things may not go our way, but you can't blame Steffy and me for trying.

Taylor: Of course not. We all hope that your dad is here to stay. I'm just saying that--

Thomas: Don't pressure him. If it's meant to be, it's meant to be. But we might as well try to stoke the fire a little in the meantime, metaphorically speaking.

Taylor: What does that mean? What are you-- what are you doing?

Thomas: Shrinks. You're always trying to look for hidden meanings.

Taylor: Hmm.

Thomas: Although, I don't think there's much hidden about how Dad feels by being back here. We're what he needs. You are what he needs. And after tonight, who knows?

Ridge: I think Brooke realized, despite what we always believed about our relationship, in the end, love couldn't conquer all.

Steffy: So you went your own separate ways. I think Brooke knew instead of fleeting moments of happiness with her, you could have lasting happiness with Mom and--and with us, if you'll let yourself.

Owen: Macadamia nut? I got addicted to these things on the island. They are so good.

Bridget: Do I look like I care about stupid nuts?

Owen: It looks like you want to take my head off right now.

Bridget: For good reason. You betrayed me, Owen.

Owen: How?

Bridget: How? Oh, you know damn well how. I didn't tell Nick that you and his mother were in Hawaii because you promised me that you were going to leave and not ruin our honeymoon. But instead, you go and marry Jackie? What is wrong with you? How am I ever gonna believe anything out of your mouth again, and why should Nick?

Nick: No pre-nup? Have you lost your marbles?

Jackie: (Chuckles) Well, obviously you think I have. For the life of me, I can't understand why you're in such a state about this. I mean, Owen is not a threat to your inheritance.

Nick: That's not what this is about, and you know it.

Jackie: What I know is that you are taking what has happened far too seriously.

Nick: You married the guy.

Jackie: I know. He makes me happy.

Nick: Really? Are you gonna be happy, Mother, when he leaves you and takes all of your money and leaves you heartbroken?

Jackie: Well, I've been penniless before, and broken hearts mend-- country songs to the contrary. (Chuckles)

Nick: What about this? Did pretty boy set up the press so he could cover the wedding and then rub it in my face?

Jackie: No, there wasn't a photographer in sight when we took our vows.

Nick: Well, then how you do you explain this?

Jackie: Well, I don't know. Maybe it was a long lens. The guy was on the beach, knew he'd taken a photograph that had a premium, sold it to Bill Spencer. You know what? I'm gonna ask Bill myself when I call him to thank him for those lovely flowers.

Nick: (Sighs)

Jackie: Honey, will you please stop? Stop worrying about me. I may look as though I'm out of control, but believe me, I'm in total control of everything.

Owen: It's like I told you in Hawaii. If I would have known that you and Nick were honeymooning there, I wouldn't have taken Jackie there.

Bridget: Oh, please. I'm not so sure about that.

Owen: Listen to me, Bridget. I swear to you, I was not trying to cause any trouble. I promise. I just wanted to marry the woman. Come on, what man in his right mind wouldn't? She's beautiful. She's--she's funny. And most of all, look, I love her.

Bridget: Mm-hmm.

Owen: I love her, and I would love her even if she didn't have a penny to her name. Now I know that Nick doesn't want to believe that, but I'm her husband, and the only person he's got to blame is himself.

Bridget: Meaning?

Owen: Look, meaning that if he hadn't bullied and belittled me as much as he did, we wouldn't have felt the need to elope. Look, I-it's not that I regret it, because you know what? Jackie is the best thing that has ever happened to me, and I'm gonna be the best damn husband to her. Look, I know that you and Nick are skeptical, but I'm gonna prove you both wrong. You watch and just see.

Nick: (Chuckles) Well, Mother, you've rendered me speechless again, almost.

Jackie: Oh, this is a lovely photograph. You sound like a stodgy old parent.

Nick: You know, one of us has to be an adult here, especially when it comes to protecting your finances.

Jackie: Well, firstly, my finances mean absolutely nothing without someone to enjoy them with. And secondly, I am not about to hand over the keys to the company or my new Ferrari to my new husband.

Nick: What Ferrari? Who bought a-- you bought a Ferrari?

Jackie: My point is...

Nick: What Ferrari?

Jackie: I don't want to spend one more second at odds with you. I mean, yes, what Owen and I have is unconventional, but would you expect anything less from me? And if I've made a mistake, I will have had one hell of an exciting ride making it, and, darling, some of the most sensational sex.

Nick: Oh! Oh, God. I don't want to hear about the--

Jackie: And best of all, my very young and my very yummy new husband has brought unpredictability back into my life, just the way that Bridget has brought predictability back into yours.

Nick: What is that supposed to mean? You're calling me and my new bride stuffy? Stiffs? Like, boring? That's what you're saying, isn't it? That we're like deadbeats.

Jackie: Oh, please. No, my point is that I wish you and Bridget a lifetime of joy and happiness.

Nick: (Sighs)

Jackie: But, darling, happiness isn't just for the young. It's for the young at heart, as well. Look, I know Owen isn't who you'd choose for me, so if it makes you feel better, keep an eye out for me. That's fine. But just for right now, can't you be happy for me? Just relax and have a good time and give me a hug. Please? You look cute. (Laughs)

Nick: (Laughs mockingly)

Steffy: They are gonna be so surprised.

Thomas: Yeah, if they ever get here.

Steffy: Hey, where's the sparkling water?

Thomas: Oh, uh, I have it right here.

Steffy: Perfect. Mom, Dad, hey.

Thomas: Hey, I thought you guys had gotten lost.

Taylor: Oh, I-- I know you two said you didn't need any help, but--

Thomas: What?

Steffy: Is something wrong?

Ridge: I thought we were having a barbecue.

Thomas: We are, sort of.

Steffy: Yeah, well, we wanted to do something special for you two, so we ordered from that French bistro you guys love so much.

Ridge: There are only two place settings.

Thomas: Well, that's the idea.

Steffy: Yeah, we're gonna be leaving in a short while, and we're not gonna be back anytime soon, so feel free to chat and-- and laugh and dance. You know, whatever.

(Soft music plays)

Taylor: Um, here. Can you hold that? Go ahead and put that down. Uh, could you come here for a minute, Thomas?

Thomas: Yeah?

Taylor: Look, sweetheart, I know you're happy that your father's back home, and I-I know the two of you mean well, but this isn't something you can rush, okay? Not tonight. He's not ready. It's too soon.

Thomas: (Sighs)

Jackie: (Giggles)

Owen: So what vicious things did Nick say about me this time?

Jackie: Oh, the usual. You know, you're a phony. Oh, there was a new one.

Owen: Hmm?

Jackie: You've had double ab implants. (Laughs)

Owen: Oh, my gosh. Is he ever gonna let up, especially now that we're married? It's like I told Bridget. He's completely wrong about me. Listen to me. I am totally and completely under your spell, Mrs. Knight. You and me and this marriage is for keeps.

Nick: So what'd he say?

Bridget: Well, I think Jackie and this marriage are the most important things to him.

Nick: Of course they are. He's set for life. It's just the way he went about it. Oh, secret sneaking around like that. It proves that he can't be trusted. Not that my mother's concerned.

Bridget: I think your mother feels like she's in control.

Nick: Control of what? What if pretty boy really isn't playing a number on her? How long do you think this deal's really gonna last?

Bridget: Do you really think that she's worried about that?

Nick: (Coughs) No.

Bridget: Well, then, I don't think we should be either.

Nick: (Sighs)

Bridget: God, talking is so overrated. Do you really think that we need to keep talking? Especially when we could be doing something else?

Steffy: (Sighs) we messed up.

Ridge: No, sweetheart, you didn’t.

Steffy: I messed up. Dinner for two-- this was my idea. I just talked Thomas into going along.

Ridge: I'll bet you didn't have to do much talking.

Steffy: Because it's his dream, too, to have you home. And Phoebe’s.

Ridge: Your sister told you that, did she?

Steffy: You'd be surprised the things I tell her, yeah. My private thoughts, my fears, my feelings, how amazing it is to wake up in the morning and to hear your voice downstairs, or to feel safe just knowing I can go to sleep knowing that you're down the hall, even though you're in the guestroom bed. I'd much rather have you in Mom's room. I'm sorry. I just want things back to the way they used to be, and I just keep expecting it to happen overnight. I don't know. Maybe it's the little girl in me. You guys used to look at each other with so much love. And I can't stop wishing that maybe-- I don't know.

Ridge: Hey, could you, uh, two give your mom and me a little time to talk here?

Taylor: (Chuckles) I'm sorry. I know this isn't what you expected. It isn't what I expected. It's just that they, uh--

Ridge: Yeah, they just couldn't really help themselves. I know. Well, we could stay and, uh, take advantage of this nice dinner they've gone to a lot of trouble to make.

Taylor: Well, we could get pizza. I know you might rather do that. Just let the four of us--

Ridge: No, it would be a shame to let all of this go to waste. Hey, music.

(Soft music plays)

Ridge: May I?

Taylor: (Chuckles) (Sighs) Yes, you may.

Steffy: Look at them. Our parents are back together. Tonight is a night anything can happen. And it will. (Laughs)
