Brooke: I don't want to pressure you, but it's time to make a decision. I can't wait around forever. (Sighs) You know how much I love you, Ridge, and how much our family needs you. So come back. Come back to our life together.
Steffy: Owen? Owen? Hey, I thought that was you.
Owen: Steffy, hey.
Steffy: I totally forgot you had a place down here.
Owen: What, are you playing hooky from work?
Steffy: Well, there's supposed to be a south swell today, so...
Owen: Yeah, I'd say give it about another hour. It'll be here.
Steffy: Yeah. You thinking about going out?
Owen: No, no, I'm just, uh, just doing some thinking.
Steffy: Okay, well, um, if you change your mind, I surf that spot right down there.
Owen: Oh, it's a good spot.
Steffy: Mm-hmm. It is. Hey, I'm actually surprised you're down here.
Owen: Yeah, I, uh, I moved out of Jackie’s loft. Now I'm living out here again.
Nick: Bad idea. Very, very, very bad, bad, bad idea.
Jackie: Look, it may not have been as successful as I had hoped.
Nick: You could have been killed.
Jackie: Oh, it's not that dangerous. People go parasailing all the time. I wouldn't have gone if I had been concerned.
Nick: I have to question your judgment also, Mother. You see, I get a little worried when you start taking relationship advice from Pam.
Jackie: It sounded crazy...
Jackie: At first, but then the more I thought about it, it was--
Nick: Flying down the beach with "I heart you, Owen" on the back of a parasail?
Jackie: Yes, it was over the top, all right? But Owen was completely charmed.
Nick: Was he? Well, then tell me. Why do you look like your dog just died?
Jackie: Because he's not ready to come back to me.
Ridge: This isn't easy for me, either, Logan. I know I have to make a decision. But I've got to be sure. I need more time.
Ridge: I'm sorry. I know it doesn't seem fair to you.
Brooke: We're past all that-- what's fair, who's to blame. This time I spent with Taylor and James up at Big Bear, it was really clarifying for me. I know that you can't stand seeing Taylor and me at each other's throats. And I can't stand the way things are.
Ridge: It's not always gonna be like this. We'll figure it out, okay?
Brooke: (Sighs) I already have. My mom's getting worse, and I'm not gonna let her slip away while I am preoccupied with other things. My dad and mom already left for Paris, and as soon as I can arrange things... (sighs) the kids and I will be there, too.
Jackie: Owen wants to trust me, Nicky. He's just not sure that he can.
Nick: What, parasailing over his beach house wasn't a big enough statement?
Jackie: He loves me, more than he's ever loved anyone, but what happened with Whip, it really hurt him.
Nick: Well, the guy's a bit gun-shy.
Jackie: I let him down.
Nick: You made a mistake. He's not ready to forgive you.
Jackie: (Sighs) He wants to.
Nick: But not yet.
Jackie: That doesn't mean he won’t. I don't know what else I could do. I mean, I could try talking to him again. I--
Nick: No. He's asked for some time.
Jackie: Some time, yeah. You know, it wasn't long ago that you were telling me that I had to get a life, get out of the office and out of your business, find something, somebody that would make me happy. Well, I did. I found something incredible with Owen. And now I have totally, totally mucked it up. You know, if he can't forgive me, if we can't find our way back to one another, I don't know what I'm going to do.
Steffy: Wow, I-- I don't know what to say. Um, well, I guess you can't blame Jackie for being upset. I--man, still, that stunt your brother pulled, I--that was twisted.
Steffy: But it wasn't fair for her to kick you out, because you didn't do anything wrong, you know?
Owen: Well, I mean, she didn't kick me out, actually. I, uh, I left.
Owen: Well, after that whole interview fiasco, I couldn't get in touch with Jackie, and by the time I got back from San Diego, it was too late. She thought I betrayed her, and so she betrayed me.
Steffy: Betrayed you... with another guy?
Owen: Yep. Whip Jones. She was up in his apartment, and stuff happened. They didn't have sex, but... (sighs) I don't know why I can't get that picture out of my head. It's like-- anyways, that's-- that's why I'm here. Now it's like when-- every time I see Jackie or I think about her, that's the only thing that comes into my mind is Whip and my wife together, and it's killing me.
Ridge: So you're running away.
Brooke: I'm doing what's best for my mother and me.
Ridge: Logan, your parents could stay in L.A. You and your sisters are all here.
Brooke: But this is what my mom wants.
Ridge: Is it what you want, though?
Brooke: You know what I want.
Ridge: Did Beth ask you to go with her?
Ridge: Does she even know what you're planning? It seems so crazy, Logan. It doesn't make sense. You're just gonna pack everything up and move to Paris. Why?
Brooke: Because it's too painful to stay here, Ridge, and watch you be with Taylor. This is very hurtful to me, this whole situation of going back and forth. I mean, if you-- (sighs) if you really wanted to be with me, it would only take one minute to decide. And now my mother's memory is crumbling, and... (sighs) I don't know how much longer I'm gonna have with her.
Ridge: Look, I understand. Um, look, I'm not asking you to not go there to be with her. I-I'm just asking don't do it this minute.
Brooke: Well, this minute is all we have. If I learned anything from my mother's illness, it's that.
Ridge: Look, everything is up in the air, and that's my fault. I admit it. But just running off to Paris like this, that's not the answer.
Brooke: Ridge, I don't want to do this. We're supposed to be married. We're supposed to be raising our son together. I never thought that we would be apart. And now I am losing my mother, and I really need to be there for her. And it's killing me to be here, so I have to go.
Ridge: No. No, Logan, you can't do this. I won't let you.
Nick: If you've done all you can, Mother, you've done all you can do.
Jackie: No, I can't accept that. I mean, I'm the one that acted like a completely immature schoolgirl, rushing off to cry on Whip's arms.
Nick: Now wait a minute. I'm not going to let you do this to yourself. You turned to a man that you thought would better understand you. Let's be honest, Mother. You and Owen, you're at different stages in your life. How many relationships has he even had? He's never been married. He has no idea. He can't even understand what he has in you, and he hasn't made enough mistakes to even understand how to forgive you for yours.
Jackie: I know he's going to forgive me, all right? He has to. (Sighs)
Nick: You may be both better off if he doesn’t.
Jackie: What? You said you were going to support me.
Nick: I said that I misjudged him, that he wasn't using you. I realize that. I never said you were right for each other.
Jackie: Oh, I don't believe this. You told me you would help me.
Nick: Which is what I'm trying to do.
Jackie: No, you're not. You're not. I've heard this argument before. I know what you think. You think he's too young for me. You think I'd be happier if I was with someone my own age. He'd be happier with someone his own age. Well, you're wrong. We were happy. We were so happy. And we will be again.
Nick: Mother, come on.
Jackie: No! He's gonna listen to me. I'm gonna get through to him, all right?
Owen: It's kind of hard to get past something like that.
Steffy: Hey, but it's possible.
Owen: Speaking from experience?
Steffy: Okay. Okay. Rick made some mistakes, yes, and he, uh, made me see him differently for a while, yeah.
Owen: So you guys are good now, right?
Owen: No? You--what you're not together anymore?
Owen: Hold on. Wait, wait. So wait a second. So going back before this whole entire Rick thing when I was working at Forrester, you were-- you were dating Marcus, right?
Steffy: Well, yeah, but-- no, Marcus and I are just, like, really good friends.
Owen: So now you and Rick are--what's the status?
Steffy: Took time to cool off. Took the summer, you know, just to chill out.
Owen: Steffy, the summer's over.
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, you're--you're right. You know, the truth is... so are we. It's obvious it wasn't gonna work out. My family, his family...
Owen: It's, uh, it's kind of a mess, right?
Steffy: Yeah, you could say that.
Owen: Now you're here, and you're-- you're giving me advice, a little pep talk? Is that what this is?
Steffy: What, me? Giving you-- no, no, no, no. Oh, no.
Steffy: No, I'm sorry. I know I shouldn't be giving anybody relationship advice-- mnh-mnh-- unless you want to use me and my family as examples of what not to do.
Owen: Wait a minute. Come on. I mean, your--your mom and your dad are still together. I mean, Brooke, she broke up the wedding, but she didn't exactly tear them apart, so, uh, uh, all right. I-I work with your grandmother. Come on. I-I hear everything.
Steffy: Okay. Okay. All right. Sorry.
Owen: All right? (Chuckles)
Steffy: Sorry. You know I'm sorry. (Laughs) Um, yeah, so you know that whole crazy saga. Yeah.
Owen: Mm, yeah. Stephanie wants your mom and your dad together, and, uh, I'm guessing that's probably what you want as well, right?
Steffy: You know, I, um, I just want them to be happy. However that happens, I'll be cool with it.
Ridge: You're talking about uprooting your entire life here. What about our kids?
Brooke: School hasn't started yet. I can fly to Paris with Katie and settle down in a house near mom and dad and then have the kids come over. I'll enroll them in a primary school there and then--
Ridge: What? Wait, wait. What do you mean, enroll them in school? How long are you planning to make this trip for?
Brooke: Well, you can see R.J. whenever you want, Ridge, and when you come over to international-- uh, Forrester International-- he'll stay with you.
Ridge: Wait a minute. Wait. Wait, Brooke. Brooke, hold on. Hold on. This is going too fast here. You haven't thought this through.
Brooke: Are you asking me to stay?
Ridge: I'm asking you to give it more thought.
Brooke: I have, Ridge. I've given it lots of thought for weeks and weeks. I thought about what I could do to get you to change your mind-- what I can do, what I can say. And I really thought coming back and working at Forrester with you would get you to open your eyes. Well, now that's what I need to do. I need to open my eyes, and I need to quit spinning my wheels. I need to get away from this heartache. I need to move forward, and if I have to fly halfway around the world to do that, so be it.
Steffy: You were definitely right about the swell. It's comin' up.
Owen: Well, you better get your butt out there.
Steffy: Come with?
Owen: No, I-- no.
Steffy: Come on. A few sets?
Owen: Rain check?
Steffy: Owen, you won't feel better until you make yourself feel better, hmm?
Owen: I just-- I want to feel the way that I did before this whole thing got messed up, before I had that-- that awful thought in my head. I want it back, you know? I want that feeling back-- just knowing that you're with the right person. No matter how crazy it seems to everybody else, you just know. There isn't a doubt in your mind. And Jackie’s the woman for me. I'm just not so sure that I'm the only man for her, and that worries me. I mean, moving in with her, getting married-- those were all easy decisions, because--because I knew, and I just wish this whole decision was easier, and it's not, and I hate it. It just-- more than anything in the world, I just-- I want what we had. And I want to know that I can get past this whole thing.
Jackie: You think he's too young for me. You think I'd be happier if I was with someone my own age.
Owen: And she says that she loves me. I-I wouldn't be questioning this a few weeks ago. I probably shouldn't be questioning this now, but it's like what we had was so perfect, you know? And I need her. I'm just not ready to tell her that yet. The truth is my life wouldn't be the same without her.
Ridge: So you say your mind is made up. What if things were different?
Brooke: Well, then make them different. Tell me that you're coming home.
Brooke: But you can't, and you've never given me any indication that you ever will. (Sighs)
Ridge: Is that what you want, some kind of sign?
Brooke: (Sighs) Yes. Yes, a sign, a symbol, anything. Anything that would prove to me that I am the woman that you want to be with. But you can't seem to give me that.
Ridge: What about the company? What about the Royalty campaign?
Brooke: (Sighs) Donna and Katie will come visit mom, and when they do, we'll do our photo shoots there. I'll be working for Forrester International, so it's really not gonna be a problem. I've thought all about this, Ridge. There's nothing that you can come up with that I haven't considered. This is going to happen.
Ridge: And there's nothing I can say? Nothing I can do?
Ridge: (Sighs) I love you, Logan.
Brooke: I love you.
Ridge: Everything else around us may have changed, but not that, not how I feel about you.
Brooke: Still, at the end of the night after work, you-- you go home to Taylor and Thomas and Steffy. And I just can't live with that any longer. I-I can't do it, Ridge, not even for one more night. I-I have to go finish packing.
Ridge: God! I cannot let this happen. I can't let this happen.
Ridge: Logan! (Whispers) Logan.
