Nick: (Sighs) I have a question for ya.
Nick: Why are you here?
Bridget: (Stammers) 'Cause I'm just-- I'm too wound up to just sit at home alone and wait.
Bridget: You know, we could go to the hospital right now.
Nick: Could we?
Bridget: We-We could. And we could call Sandy right now and let her know we're on our way.
Nick: Well, are we on our way? I didn't--
Nick: Of course we're on our way...
Bridget: Baby, please.
Nick: Because we're happy, and we're positive, because we're having a baby.
Bridget: Mm, thank you. We're having a-- we're having a baby. (Giggles)
Nick: Come on.
Sandy: Nick and Bridget need me to do this. They're counting on me. They want a baby. I gotta do something good with my life. (Sighs)
(Cheers and applause)
Man: And we're off.
Donna: Okay, enough, enough, enough with that silly dance.
Serge: Oh, come on. It's fun.
Pam: Oh, Donna, we're having fun. Can't you take a little joke?
Donna: (Scoffs) Justin didn't hire you to insult me, Pam.
Justin: No, but your rivalry is ratings gold. That is what makes the show fun and exciting, Donna.
Pam: I mean, you just never know what I'm gonna say next. Right?
Serge: (Laughs) (Meows)
Pam: Do, do, do, do, do (Meows)
Donna: It-It's not professional, Justin. The show is called "The Catwalk," not "The Catfight."
Justin: Pam can go a little far sometimes, but that's what the people tune in for.
Donna: To see her beat me up?
Justin: No, to see how you deal with it. You're a class act, Donna. No matter what Pam says, you're gracious, and you smile. That's why people can't take their eyes off of you.
Jackie: Oh, I can't believe that Nicky and Bridget are going to have a baby! I mean, this is just-- I'm going to be a grandmother again, darling. Oh, do you think we should send flowers? Or maybe a card?
Owen: Wait, do they make cards for embryo transfers?
Jackie: (Laughs) Oh, I can't stand it. I-I want to know what's going on.
Whip: What is going on?
Owen: Nick and Bridget’s surrogate is getting implanted today.
Jackie: "Implanted"-- please don't say it like that.
Jackie: You make it sound so clinical. I mean, she's not an incubator. (Sighs) Sandy Sommers is an angel.
Dr. Caspary: Good. You're here.
Nick: Uh, not all of us.
Bridget: Have you spoken to Sandy?
Dr. Caspary: I confirmed the appointment with her.
Bridget: Okay, well... (Sighs) then where is she? I love your sweater, is that cashmere?
Nick: Come on, relax.
Bridget: I know. (Sighs) But what if she got the time mixed up? Oh, Sandy! I'm so glad you're here.
Sandy: Am I late?
Nick: Uh, we're probably a little early.
Bridget: Yeah, I-I just-- I couldn't wait any longer. I've never been this nervous and excited and just happy all at the same time.
Sandy: I am the one who should have butterflies. (Chuckles)
Nick: Well, if you want some of Bridget’s, she's got some to spare.
Bridget: Actually, I'm just really excited more than anything else. I'm sure you feel the same way.
Whip: Have they met their surrogate?
Jackie: No, but Nicky showed me her profile.
Owen: And it just so happens, she's as good-looking as his own wife.
Jackie: Oh, that's not why they chose her. She's young and she's healthy, and she and Bridget, they share a lot of the same passions. They both love the ocean and yoga. That is going to be a real plus over the next nine months.
Owen: Well, she sounds like an amazing person.
Whip: She ought to be if she's gonna offer her body up like that.
Jackie: It's an act of extraordinary generosity. Nick and Bridget-- they've wanted a child for so long now, and they're finally gonna have one. I thank God for Sandy Sommers.
Dr. Caspary: We don't use anesthesia. You can have a mild sedative if you like.
Sandy: That would be nice—good, if-if it won't hurt the baby.
Bridget: No, it won’t.
Sandy: It's like a needle?
Bridget: It's just a tube. It's not a needle.
Dr. Caspary: I'll use the ultrasound to guide this through the cervix and deposit the fluid in the uterus.
Sandy: Will it hurt?
Dr. Caspary: You may experience some discomfort and pressure.
Sandy: I only have to do it once.
Bridget: Well, we're hoping. We are freezing the other fertilized egg just in case this one doesn't take.
Nick: It will.
Sandy: (Sighs) Okay. Um... we're only using one?
Dr. Caspary: Of the four eggs we extracted from Bridget, only two were fertilized. If age was a factor, we might transfer both for a greater chance of success. It's not. We can avoid most of the potential complications of a multiple birth by using one embryo.
Dr. Caspary: Now do you have any questions?
Sandy: How long will it take?
Dr. Caspary: The entire transfer procedure takes between 10 and 20 minutes, after which you'll be restricted to bed rest, and in a couple of days, we'll take another ultrasound to confirm that the embryo has attached to the uterine wall.
Bridget: Are you ready?
Nick: We will be right here for you.
Nick: I'll just stand over here.
Sandy: Uh, could you maybe pull the curtain a little more?
Pam: Steph! What are you doin' here?
Stephanie: I've been trying you on your cell phone.
Pam: Oh, I keep it in my dressing room.
Stephanie: Oh, right, okay. Well, look, Mother called. She's flying out from Chicago.
Stephanie: Well, I was hoping you knew.
Pam: Well, didn't you ask her?
Stephanie: Of course I asked her, Pam. She wouldn't say. Look, you need to get through to her.
Pam: Me? (Scoffs) Why me?
Stephanie: Well, because if she does come, she's going to stay with you.
Pam: Okay. I'll call her. I'll call her right now. I'll call her.
Donna: Oh, uh, Stephanie, if--if you're looking for Pam, she was just here a second ago.
Stephanie: Thank you, Donna. Actually, I just-- I just spoke to her.
Donna: Oh, okay.
Stephanie: But, uh, do you have a second?
Stephanie: Can I ask you something?
Stephanie: And I'm serious. Why are you continuing to do this show when you know Eric is so upset by it?
Dr. Caspary: Sandy, try to relax. We're gonna begin.
Bridget: Oh, don't worry about a thing. You're doin' great.
Nick: (Mouthing words)
Bridget: (Mouthing words)
Donna: Look, I-I don't want to talk about this here.
Stephanie: In front of Justin?
Donna: At my job.
Stephanie: I know who he is.
Donna: He's my producer.
Stephanie: He's also Marcus' father. Don't you think this is all inappropriate?
Donna: Okay, Brooke works with Eric, and they have two children. Nobody finds that inappropriate.
Stephanie: They were married for a long time, and they didn't put those children up for adoption. Donna, this is causing problems in your marriage. If you're really smart, you'll walk away from all of this nonsense right now.
Donna: (Sighs) Yes, well, thank you very, very much for the warning, Stephanie. And I-I might actually take it seriously if it came from anyone but you. But you would be doing cartwheels if my marriage was on the rocks.
Stephanie: A while ago, maybe. Look, you're hurting Eric. I don't want to see that. Hasn't that man been through enough?
Jackie: Losing Nicole was the absolute greatest tragedy of Nick and Bridget’s life. It totally devastated them. And then poor Bridget had another miscarriage, after which the doctor said it was all but impossible for her to carry a baby to term.
Whip: So they, uh, just quit trying?
Jackie: Oh, no, they had to put the idea aside. I mean, it was just so painful. But then my darling... (Chuckles) overzealous husband...
Owen: Oh, boy,
Jackie: Mwah. Started looking into surrogates for us, and...
Owen: Look at how things turned out.
Jackie: Things are turning out perfectly. No surprises this time. Just a darling little baby that's going to have my son's grin and Bridget’s beautiful eyes.
Owen: Well, she's not pumped up about this or anything.
Whip: Oh, no.
Jackie: (Sighs) Oh, I can't stand it. (Exhales)
Owen: You want to go over there, don't you?
Jackie: Yes. (Chuckles)
Owen: Oh, boy.
Jackie: Come on, let's go.
Owen: Okay, we're going then.
Jackie: I'm going there. I've gotta congratulate them.
Owen: Whip, we're all going.
Whip: All going. All right.
Jackie: Oh, thank you.
Sandy: How's it going, Doc? You almost done?
Dr. Caspary: Almost. You're doing very well. A little lower. Left quadrant. Thank you.
Bridget: What you're doing for us, Sandy, is such an incredible gift. Our little baby-- that little baby is gonna grow up knowing that he or she came into the world because of the goodness and the generosity of a very, very special woman.
Dr. Caspary: All right. I'm there. I'm implanting the embryo... now.
Dr. Caspary: That's it. We're done.
Dr. Caspary: Don't get up.
Bridget: Thank you. Thank you so much.
Nick: You are remarkable-- all of you. Bridget and I are so grateful to all of you for what you've done. Thank you. Thank you so much.
Bridget: Get all cuddly there. Okay, do you need anything else at all?
Sandy: Nope. How long, do you think, before we know if the pregnancy takes?
Bridget: We'll know in just a few days.
Sandy: I hope you're not worried, 'cause I'm not worried at all.
Sandy: This is gonna happen. I know it is. I haven't been great at everything that I've done in my life, but I'm gonna be great at this. I promise.
Donna: My husband is fine, Stephanie.
Stephanie: I don't know if this is an act of bravado on your part, or if you really believe it--
Donna: Look, I know you went to the house before the reception.
Stephanie: Yes, I went to see Eric. I thought he might need some support.
Donna: Hmm. Did he ask you to come over?
Stephanie: He doesn't have to. I know him so well. You, on the other hand, can't hear him crying for help when he's doing it loud and clear. Donna, he--he hates the idea of you working here. He feels as though you're in collusion with the people who stole his company.
Donna: No, I'm not in collusion with anyone...
Donna: Stephanie. Yes, I work for Bill Spencer. We all work for Bill Spencer.
Stephanie: Yeah, and you seem to enjoy it more than anyone else. Listen, Forrester Creations is just a company to you. It's just a label.
Stephanie: But it's Eric’s whole life, his dream. If you give your--your loyalty to Bill Spencer, don't you think that's disrespecting Eric and his dream and what he sacrificed to achieve it?
Donna: No, no, I'm--I'm not.
Stephanie: Yes, you are. Whether you want to admit it or not, Donna, that is what you're doing.
Pam: I couldn't stop her.
Stephanie: What'd she say?
Pam: Well, she couldn't say much of anything at 40,000 feet.
Pam: She'd left a message on my cell phone that she was boarding the plane. That means she's on her way right now, Steph. She left the flight number, and the flight arrives in, like, two hours at L.A.X.
Stephanie: Why? Why now? And why is this-- what's this big mystery?
Pam: Well, what are you so worried about? She's gonna be staying with me. (Scoffs)
Nick: Hey. Well, it's not time to break out the balloons and the cigars, but things are looking pretty good.
Nick: Yeah, yeah.
Bridget: Did you talk to Dr. Caspary?
Nick: I did. She said the procedure went just, just fine. Now all we have to do is wait and make sure we take care of this lady right here.
Nick: Oh, listen, I found this in the waiting area.
Sandy: A yoga magazine.
Nick: Yeah. I figured you're gonna be here for a while...
Nick: So... (Chuckles)
Sandy: Thank you.
Nick: It's a little bit old. Hopefully, you haven't read it yet.
Sandy: No, I haven’t.
Nick: You know, you were great today. Doesn't feel like ‘thank you’ is quite enough.
Bridget: So get some rest, and we'll check on you in a bit.
Nick: Psst, psst. We're having a baby.
Bridget: I know. Mm.
Bridget: I don't want to jinx it, though. Let's just not say anything.
Nick: We are not gonna jinx it. That bad luck, that's all beyond us. This baby is going to happen.
Bridget: I know. Mm.
Jackie: Oh, there you are!
Nick: Mother, why are you here?
Jackie: Oh, my goodness, honey, I just couldn't wait by the phone. I had to be here to find out what was going on and congratulate you and celebrate.
Bridget: Well, thank you.
Jackie: How did it go?
Bridget: It-- everything went perfectly.
Jackie: Oh, well done. Congratulations, both of you.
Owen: And these are for you.
Bridget: Oh, Owen, thank you.
Owen: You're welcome.
Jackie: And these are for Sandy. Um, is she in there?
Nick: She's--she's resting.
Jackie: Oh, sorry.
Nick: Right. She's got--
Jackie: And here we are making all this ruckus, bad boy.
Bridget: You know what? There's a--there's a waiting room right over here. Let's go.
Jackie: There is?
Owen: Come on.
Nick: Yeah, that's a good idea.
Jackie: I want to know everything, everything.
Woman: Dr. Valentino to the O.R., please.
Whip: Uh, sorry. (Laughs) Agnes? (Scoffs) Aggie? What are you doing here?
Pam: Oh. (Sighs)
Stephanie: Pam, calm down. I just--let--let's try and figure this out. I cannot understand why our mother would show up unannounced. It is so unlike her. She loves her grand entrance. We all know that. To have her minions waiting for her.
Pam: Yeah, her minions, meaning me.
Stephanie: Meaning anybody that she can order around, even me.
Pam: Mother has never ordered you around, Steph.
Stephanie: There's got to be a reason that is compelling her to come here now.
Pam: Yeah, well, I think I know what it is.
Stephanie: You do?
Pam: She's coming after me, Steph. I just know it. She wants to drag me back to Chicago, and I don't want to go, Steph.
Stephanie: Oh, Pam. Pam, honey, has she even discussed something like that with you?
Pam: No, but she wouldn't, would she? She wouldn't want to give me advanced notice.
Stephanie: Why would she do it now? You've been here almost two years.
Pam: Well, maybe that's exactly why. Maybe she's tired of being by herself and she's feeling lonely.
Stephanie: Why wouldn't she call you and just ask you?
Pam: 'Cause she's probably afraid that I wouldn't do it.
Stephanie: Would you?
Pam: No! Don't you see? That's exactly the point. She's coming to get me.
Stephanie: Oh, Pam, stop.
Stephanie: I'm not so sure that this is about you.
Pam: Well, believe me, I hope you're right. I hope with my whole life that you're right.
Stephanie: (Chuckles) For all we know, she's got a truck following that plane. (Sighs) Maybe she's gonna plan to move here.
Pam: (Gasps) Don't even say that, Stephanie. That's not funny.
Stephanie: I'm sorry.
Stephanie: Okay, all right. All right, calm down.
Pam: Move here?
Stephanie: It's--shh, shh. It's all right.
Stephanie: What I'm upset about is that she's traveling alone. She shouldn't be doing that at her age. We know that.
Pam: I know.
Stephanie: And it's just... I just don't understand. She has to have a reason. Our mother never does anything in this world without a specific reason.
Pam: I know.
Stephanie: If we could just figure that out.
Pam: I think we're about to find out.
