Donna: I don't want to fight with you.
Eric: I don't want to fight either.
Stephanie: Well, there seems to be an ultimatum here.
Donna: Do I have a choice? Do you think I-I like feeling like this, Eric? Do you think that I like whining and feeling insecure like this?
Stephanie: Donna, you are an insecure person, and that is why I think perhaps you're overreacting a bit here.
Donna: You see? You see what I have to put up with at the office all day? I cannot-- I cannot come home to that, too, Eric. Having Stephanie here is not just uncomfortable, Eric. It's unbearable. Just please ask her to go. Please.
Bill: (Grunts) (Sighs) Yeah, baby. Hi. (Sighs) I was just finishing up. No, no, no, you don't have to-- you don't have to hurry back. Enjoy your time with your friends. Yeah. I'm just gonna meditate for a little while. (Chuckles) Right. Hopefully no interruptions this time.
Oliver: Thanks again for letting me stay at your friend's beach house.
Owen: Oh, yeah. Wait-- uh, what do you mean?
Owen: Oh, I-I don't know. I guess I just kind of forgot about that.
Bridget: I thought you went home after the wedding.
Owen: Well, I thought that you did, too.
Bridget: I'm sorry. You--I hate that it's awkward every single time we see each other.
Owen: New design?
Bridget: Um, no. It's a revision of an old one. I had an idea at the wedding.
Owe: Well, that's--that's pretty excellent. Oh, and you did a really, really great job on Taylorís gown, by the way.
Bridget: It turned out well.
Owen: Yeah, it did. The, uh, whole ceremony was--was really nice. I told Jackie that I wish I could have given her one like that.
Bridget: (Chuckles) What'd she say?
Owen: She said that she-- Oh, don't I know it.
Owen: No, I-I-I'm the one that brought up.
Bridget: Yeah, but we should be able to talk about our spouses, right?
Owen: I know. I know. Just give it some time. I mean, we're--we're doin' okay. At least, I hope we are.
Bridget: Well, I-I-I'm not having second thoughts anymore. I hate lying to Nick, but I think you're right. It's best to keep it our secret.
Owen: Well, that is if it still is a secret.
Stephanie: I think you need, uh, just a moment to talk this out between yourselves. Um, is--is the liquor still in the living room?
Donna: You--you already told her she could stay, didn't you?
Eric: Sweetheart, it's a temporary arrangement, just until she can find a place of her own.
Donna: But she considers this her place, Eric. I mean, don't-- don't you understand? With her here, it's not our home. With her across the courtyard, I-I-I feel like an intruder in my own--
Eric: But--but you don't have to feel that way.
Eric: Donna, you're making too big a deal out of this.
Donna: But th--this-- this is a big issue, Eric. My God, this is not about Pam and her job, and this is not about Stephanie squatting in our guesthouse. This is about us, our marriage. I'm fighting for it. Why--why aren't you helping? Do you want me to beg?
Eric: Donna, you're getting yourself all worked up, too worked up. I mean, this doesn't have to be a crisis. All we have to do is compromise.
Donna: Why? Why do we have to compromise? She could stay with her sister, her kids. My God, she's not alone. Why here with us?
Eric: Because I invited her, Donna. She's a part of my family.
Eric: She always will be.
Donna: Oh, my God. I am wasting my breath.
Eric: Wait, I'm not trying to hurt you.
Donna: No. No, but she is. She is trying to come between us, Eric, and it's working. My God. Either you can't see that, or you-- you just don't want to.
Donna: You know what? I-If this is how it's gonna be, I can't be here.
Eric: Donna, don't do that. Donna, wait.
Stephanie: Let her go, Eric.
Bridget: (Gasps) What are you saying? Did you tell someone?
Owen: No, I didn't tell anyone.
Bridget: Well, then what do you mean? It still is our secret.
Owen: But Oliverís staying at the beach house. I totally forgot about it. I gave him the keys. He mentioned something to me about it at the wedding.
Bridget: Owen, there was no one there at the house that night. There couldn't have been.
Owen: Look, we drug out all those candles. Did we--did we put them back? Did we leave anything behind?
Bridget: Oh, God, no, we didn't, or Oliver would have said something to you. He would have mentioned it, right?
Owen: Yeah, I don't know. I-I guess I just got shook up when he said something about staying there. But you're right. I mean, nobody was there- so nobody saw us.
Aggie: Oh, I-I didn't know anyone was here.
Owen: I-I was just gonna leave.
Aggie: Donít let me interrupt.
Bridget: I guess we all had the same idea, huh? Get a jump start on work.
Eric: I should have gone after her.
Stephanie: And then what? Told her that you've changed your mind? Uh, that I'm not staying? Because that's the only thing that she wants to hear from you right now.
Eric: Yes, but I-I can see her point. I can see how it seems to her that I'm taking your side.
Stephanie: Mm, of course you are.
Eric: No, I'm not. You need a place to stay, and we have a guesthouse. It's not like I've invited you into the room down the hall.
Stephanie: Mm, guesthouse will do... for now.
(Knock on door)
Bill: (Whimpers) (Sighs)
Bill: Katie's not here.
Donna: That's how you say hello?
Bill: I'm not saying hello.
Donna: Where is she?
Bill: She's out with friends. Why? Oh, no, wait. (Chuckles) Don't tell me. You're having another emotional crisis.
Donna: You think that's something to joke about? Bill, that answers my question. If you must know, Eric asked Stephanie to stay in our guesthouse.
Bill: That is a crisis.
Donna: Yes, well, my husband doesn't seem to think so. He thinks it's a great idea, except I have to change my attitude about it.
Bill: You had another fight.
Donna: No. No, I tried to reason with him. He wouldn't listen, so I left.
Bill: That was a big mistake.
Stephanie: You two have a lot of issues.
Eric: There's been a lot of tension. But I guess I don't have to tell you that.
Stephanie: No, you donít.
Eric: I mean, so much has been going on-- Spencer taking over the company and Donna and her sisters supporting it, and "The Catwalk" and all that.
Stephanie: Well, they put you out to pasture, didn't they?
Eric: That's exactly-- exactly how I felt.
Stephanie: And you expected something different from your wife. Instead, she supported it.
Eric: (Sighs) Yeah, well, we have the company back now, and at some point, I'm gonna have to let this all go.
Stephanie: Mm-hmm. But I can see that it's taken a toll on your marriage, and I think-- I think you're trying to figure out exactly... (Sighs) what you have in common with Donna. Honey, you wanted some excitement and some adventure, and you got it in spades. But that's not how you build a future. There's no stability in that. What you've always needed--
always needed is a woman that challenges you intellectually and creatively, not just in the bedroom-- somebody who brings out the best in you.
Eric: And that would be someone like you. Is that what you're saying?
Bill: You don't walk out in the middle of an argument, Donna.
Donna: But he asked his ex-wife to move in with us.
Bill: So to protest, you leave. So she's there, and you're not.
Donna: I didn't want to fight with him.
Bill: Is your marriage worth fighting for?
Donna: Of course it is.
Bill: Then what are you doing here?
Donna: (Scoffs) I just needed somebody to talk to.
Bill: (Chuckles) No, you needed someone to feel sorry for you.
Donna: Okay, obviously, I came to the wrong place.
Bill: No, no, I feel sorry for you, but not because Stephanieís moving into your guesthouse. She's not the one undermining your marriage. You are. Walking out is like giving up. You have to go back.
Donna: No, not until Stephanie is gone.
Bill: Well, Ericís not gonna send her away now. Why should he?
Donna: (Scoffs) Because having her there hurts me.
Bill: So because you're hurt, you want to hurt him back.
Bill: You don't want to hear it.
Donna: You know, actually, Bill, I donít.
Bill: Too bad. You love your husband?
Donna: Of course.
Bill: Then go home. Go home. Work it out.
Donna: (Sighs) Do you--what if we can't?
Bill: Well, you're certainly not gonna work it out being here with me, are you? Don't let Stephanie win by default. Get in there and fight. Now go. I've got things to do. Beat it.
Donna: Okay. Thank you. Thank you. (Giggles) Okay, I will.
Aggie: Uh, Jackie asked me to drop off some--some folders, but she didn't mention that her husband would be here... or you.
Bridget: Oh, um, well, I-I just wanted to check out a sketch, and Owen-- I guess he had some last-minute work to do, too.
Aggie: So I thought you'd be with your husband after the wedding.
Bridget: Nick's waiting for me at home.
Aggie: Oh. Well, I don't-- I don't want to keep you then.
Bridget: You stickin' around?
Aggie: Yeah. I don't mind working late.
Bridget: Oh, you really like it here, don't you?
Aggie: Jackie M. is like family to me.
Bridget: You know, you've been on my mind.
Aggie: I have?
Bridget: Yeah, with Graham and... you know, the rape, everything you've gone through. What's going on with that, by the way?
Aggie: There's gonna be a trial, and I'll have to testify.
Bridget: Oh, that's gonna be hard.
Aggie: Yes, but believe me, I want to do it.
Bridget: Well, now you have support-- people behind you that care about you and really love you.
Aggie: You're kind of freaking me out. I mean, you say that as if you might be one of them.
Bridget: Well, would that surprise you?
Aggie: Yes, it would.
Aggie: 'Cause you were so angry with me, and now you're being kind of nice. Why?
Bridget: I think you know why, Aggie. I know you think I'm "little Miss Perfect," but I'm not, and I never expected you to be.
Bridget: No. I expected you to be who you said you were. But, you know, in retrospect, I am very ashamed of the way I handled it.
Aggie: You see it differently now?
Bridget: Yeah, I do. I-I've gained perspective. You made some mistakes, and I-I've definitely made some mistakes, but one-- one far worse than-- than the others. One mistake so terrible at I'll regret it for the rest of my life. You know, Aggie, losing the baby, um... It's devastating. It was our one last best hope, and when we lost it, I-I just couldn't handle it. I we to a place so dark, I didn't recognize myself. I don't have to describe the loss to you. I know you understand. It's happened before, and it's starting to seem like a recurring nightmare, only it's not a dream. It's real. When you go to a place so dark, so low that you do things that you regret for the rest of your life, it humbles you. It makes you see how fragile a sense of self really is. The person that I thought I was and I wanted to be was no different than the persona that you created for yourself. I'm so sorry, Aggie. No, I-I really am. I didn't handle things right with you. I acted holier-than-thou, and I judged you unfairly. And I-- I would really appreciate it if you would forgive me.
Bridget: Really. We used to be friends. I mean, don't you think we could be friends again?
Aggie: I don't know.
Bridget: Look, I don't blame you for not trusting me. I understand that.
Aggie: I guess I'm just wondering, why now?
Bridget: I miss you. I miss our friendship, and... the way we connected. Nick and I have decided to put the sadness behind us and let the past be the past. You think we could do the same thing? Please?
Stephanie: Yes, I am what you need, what you've always needed. (Sighs) The question is, can you admit it?
Eric: Well, you know, not every day of our marriage was pure bliss, you know.
Stephanie: (Chuckles) No, it wasnít. But we had more good days than bad.
Eric: I'll admit that. I haven't forgotten you and me in this house together, you know. Martinis after work, planning our next big move at the company, bragging--bragging about the kids to one another. (Chuckles) And you never, never resented me bringing my work home on the weekends.
Stephanie: Well, you're an artist. I've always respected that.
Eric: And you were my inspiration.
Donna: Eric, sweetheart.
Eric: Donna, you came back.
Donna: Yeah. I'm home. Stephanie, uh, could you just please give us a minute? Please?
Stephanie: Of course.
Donna: Thank you. I-I shouldn't have walked out. I'm sorry. I mean, how do I expect you to meet me halfway when I-I can't even stick around to--to work things out?
Eric: So you're willing to discuss this? Sit down.
Donna: Sit. First--first, I just, um, I want to apologize. I didn't want to make you feel disrespected. I didn't, okay? I-I respect you, Eric. And I-I never want to make you feel hurt or disappointed. But I know I did that. And I'm sorry. I'm sorry. You know I love you with all of my heart. (Sighs) Darling, could you just please find it in your heart to forgive me? Please?
