Bridget: (Gasping) (Sighs heavily)
Owen: Oh, my God, Bridget.
Owen: Are you okay? Are you okay? What's goin' on?
Bridget: (Gasping) I can't--I can't--
Owen: Come on, you got it. Just relax.
Ridge: What's all this?
Stephanie: Oh, just a little something for your father.
Ridge: Things seem to be goin' pretty well for you these days.
Stephanie: Well, don't get your hopes up. (Chuckles)
Ridge: Oh, come on. Livin' on the same property? I heard you moved into the guesthouse. How did that happen?
Stephanie: Well, Whip moved in with Taylor, and your father was nice enough to invite me to stay in the guesthouse.
Ridge: It's only a matter of time before you're back in the main house.
Stephanie: No, there's just one pesky little problem-- Donna.
Ridge: Dad and Donna have had issues for months. Frankly, I think that relationship has taken its toll on Dad.
Stephanie: I agree with you.
Ridge: I've seen the way dad's been looking at you lately. He wants you back.
Stephanie: I'd like to believe that, but...
Rick: Hey, Dad.
Eric: Oh, hi, son. Donna.
Rick: Um, Donna and I were just, uh, talking about the Hope for the Future campaign. There seems to be some confusion as to which prototypes are being sent to the international distributors.
Eric: N-no, I-I think we already discussed that, didn't we?
Donna: Oh, we did. We did. I just, uh, you know, can't seem to remember what we decided. I've been a little distracted lately.
Eric: Because of Stephanie?
Donna: Well, now she's at my home, too.
Rick: What is she talking about?
Donna: Stephanie is now living in the guesthouse.
Rick: Oh, boy.
Eric: The situation is only temporary. She needed a place to stay while--uh, since Whip has moved in with Taylor.
Donna: So your father invited her to stay with us.
Eric: And Donnaís having a difficult time with this, as you can see.
Donna: Can you blame me? I mean, she's your ex-wife, and she hates me. (Laughs) It's her life mission to make me miserable, and now I-I have to live with her. But, you know, it's cool. It's fine. I'll deal with it.
Rick: Uh, Dad... (Clears throat) seriously, what the hell are you thinking?
Nick: I want to see the proofs from that Cabana shoot A.S.A.P. No, I-I don't want you looking at them, actually. I want to do this completely differently this time. I want them all to come through me. Yes. There's a lot of pressure on this campaign. Now this is a big investment for us, so we have to make sure this thing works, and Bridget has been working her tail off on this. Well, thank you. I'll pass that on to her. Yes. Well, you're right. She is an amazing woman. You got it. All right, get back to me. I'm a very lucky man. (Sighs)
Owen: Look, come here. Drink some of this water. Come here. Take a sip. Take a sip and tell me what's goin' on. You got it?
Bridget: That night we spent together should have never happened.
Owen: Look it, I know. We made a mistake.
Bridget: It was more than a mistake.
Owen: Wait, Bridget, I thought that you were doing better.
Bridget: I wasnít. I was trying to, but that was... that was before all this. I can't keep lying to Nick.
Owen: Come on. Look, I don't like it either, but it's the best thing for both of our marriages. You--you understood that, and we agreed.
Bridget: I know. I went to the doctor today.
Owen: Yeah, I mean, Nick said that you went in for your annual checkup. What--I mean, is there something wrong?
Bridget: I don't know. I don't know. So what if something more happened?
Bridget: What if I'm pregnant?
Rick: Obviously, you and Donna are having some problems.
Eric: There was a shift in our marriage. Things changed when Bill Spencer took over the company.
Rick: Right, and you feel that she chose sides.
Eric: She did choose sides. And the side she chose wasn't mine.
Rick: (Chuckles) Oh, she-- she was kind of in a-a difficult position, Dad, being stuck in the middle of you and her own sister.
Eric: She didn't seem to be struggling.
Rick: She was caught up, Dad-- all right, she should have been more conscious of your feelings.
Eric: Yes. Yes, she should have.
Rick: I want you to know that I've talked to Donna about the whole situation when Bill and Katie were heading up the company and how you were treated and how she should have done something to stop it.
Eric: I know how Donna feels.
Rick: All right, remember the--the whole Dare campaign? Donna was behind that. She betrayed her own sister out of loyalty to you and this company. That should count for something. I'm just trying to tell you that I understand where you're coming from, but maybe you should just cut her some slack. And, Dad, Stephanie living in the guesthouse... all I'm saying is it's just a little harsh.
Stephanie: I think it'd be nice to be back with your father.
Ridge: Something tells me you're gonna make it happen.
Stephanie: Well... (sighs) one thing for sure-- no manipulation. (Chuckles) But I am gonna do something for him today, something that he deserves.
Ridge: I like the sound of that. Care to share?
Stephanie: Well, just a little tribute, you know? Uh, something that acknowledges his accomplishments, his position in the industry, his whole career. I--you know, Thorneís been helping me with it, and I just thought it would be nice to do.
Ridge: So that's what this is all about?
Ridge: You know, I've been trying to think of a way myself to thank Dad for everything he's ever done.
Stephanie: Sweetheart, believe me, just seeing you as C.E.O. seated behind his desk is all that he needs.
Ridge: This is why we need you back. It is. Something special had to be done for Dad, and here you are just doing it. You know, he doesn't even have to ask for it.
Stephanie: Well, he--
Ridge: You're putting him first. How novel is that?
Stephanie: Honey, he never would ask for something like that or expect it. That's why I thought it was time to do something like this, because he so richly deserves it.
Ridge: Something tells me you are going to get Dad back just by being you...
Ridge: And giving him exactly what he needs.
Owen: Come on. Sit down.
Bridget: So I was making a note in my calendar, and that's when I realized.
Owen: Yeah? You realized what?
Bridget: I'm late.
Owen: Wh--that--that's why you--panicking? Well, I mean, come on, you--you've been through a lot lately. You've been under a lot of stress.
Bridget: I know. So much so, that I forgot to take some birth control pills. That's how freaked out I've been. I always take every single pill. I'm very diligent about it. I've been taking this St. John's Wort because of depression and anxiety, and Dr. Caspary told me today that that can make the pill less effective.
Owen: Okay, okay. So you--you forgot to take a few pills, and you started taking this St. John's Wort. But I mean, come on. I mean, your imagination's running wild here. To think that-- that you could be pregnant and--and I could be the father? No, that's not gonna happen. It can't happen.
Nick: What's not gonna happen?
Owen: Uh, Bridgetís got some concerns about being the spokesmodel for the, uh, the lingerie line.
Nick: Hey, I thought we settled all this.
Bridget: You still don't have any qualms about it?
Nick: No. No. I donít. None whatsoever.
Owen: See, Bridget? What did I tell you? You're gonna be fine.
Nick: (Chuckles) Come on. Everything is gonna be fine. (Chuckles) You are gonna make the most beautiful spokesmodel the world has ever seen.
Bridget: Really? I don't know. I don't know if people are gonna take me seriously as a designer in my underwear.
Nick: Well, I take you very seriously in your underwear. I take you very seriously when you are not in your underwear.
Bridget: (Laughs) You know, it's not really you that I'm worried about.
Nick: I hope you know you do not have to worry about me.
Bridget: Of course I have to worry about you.
Nick: You know, I was thinking about... all of the memories we've had. (Chuckles)
Bridget: It must have taken you hours.
Bridget: There's been a lot.
Nick: There have been a lot-- a lot of good ones. The best part of thinking about that is... is knowing about all of the good memories we have ahead of us. I can't wait.
Ridge: Hey, Dad.
Eric: Ridge, hi. Good. Good, you're here. Come here. I want to ask your opinion here. There. What do you think?
Ridge: I have to say, though, I'm surprised that you really, uh, have time to get anything done these days.
Eric: What do you mean?
Ridge: Well, you know, living with two women the way you are.
Eric: Aha, you heard.
Ridge: Yes. I talked with Mother, and she confirmed that, in fact, the rumors are true.
Eric: I see. And now you're here to add your two cents' worth, is that right?
Ridge: Look, I got to admit, I'm a little surprised.
Eric: Yeah, well, you're not alone. My wife was a little surprised herself.
Ridge: Yeah, I can't imagine she's too happy about this.
Eric: No, that's putting it mildly. She's, uh... she's a little upset with me.
Donna: Stephanie, there you are.
Stephanie: Donna. What do you--what do you want?
Donna: I need to talk to you. Looks like the showroom is getting set up for something.
Stephanie: Yes, it is. What do you need?
Donna: (Sighs) What--what I need is for you to leave Eric and me alone.
Stephanie: Oh, I'm sorry. I-I thought you understood I'd always be part of Ericís life.
Donna: Look, I-I know that you share a lot with him. You--you have a family, children. I mean, you've f-founded a company together. Years of history. I don't want to change that.
Donna: You've given Eric so much. Uh, you've made him the man that he is today, Stephanie. And--and I'm really grateful for that. But that's the past, Stephanie. A-And... (Sighs) I'm his wife now, and you need to respect that. I love him, Stephanie. I-I have faith in our marriage and--and his love for me. You know, I just need a little alone time with him so that I can reconnect, but I can't do that with you on the grounds. So please, please just move out of the guesthouse.
Eric: I have to admit, I'm feeling pretty angry towards Donna. I-I-I'm really angry.
Ridge: Yeah, well, you should be.
Eric: Yeah, well, I'm trying to overcome it, but it's difficult.
Ridge: This was your company, Dad. Bill and Katie stole it from you. They banished you to the basement like some kind of disposable employee. And where was your wife when all this was happening, huh? When you were depressed, and you were unable to come to work in the morning, she wasn't thinking about you. She was thinking about herself.
Eric: Yeah, okay, I-I get your points. It's complicated.
Ridge: What is so complicated about it? When the chips were down, your wife wasn't there for you. I think you have every right to be mad as hell about this.
Stephanie: I'm not going to move out of the guesthouse unless Eric asks me to.
Donna: Fine. Stay in the guesthouse.
Stephanie: Good. We've got that all settled then.
Donna: Because it's not gonna matter. Really, I mean, whether you're 100 feet or 100 miles, I am not gonna lose Eric to you.
Stephanie: You know, you shouldn't be worried about me. You should be worried about yourself and the state-- the precarious state that your marriage is in. From my vantage point, it's a lot shakier than you'd like to believe.
Donna: Okay, fine. Fine. We are going through a rough patch. We have faced some challenges, but we are-- we're gonna get through it. We always do. And we--we have overcome many, many obstacles in the past.
Stephanie: How many obstacles is Eric supposed to overcome?
Donna: No Ste--Stephanie, you are the obstacle. If you'd just get out of the way, then everything would be fine.
Stephanie: Oh, if I would just step out of the way, everything would be hunky-dory with your marriage.
Stephanie: You're kidding yourself. Your marriage has absolutely nothing to do with me and everything to do with you, you and the way you treated your husband when Spencer took over that company. You weren't there to take care of him or protect him. All you did was parade around that little TV show. You chose the limelight over your husband.
Donna: Okay, okay. I am not perfect. I have made some mistakes, and I do regret not being there for Eric the way that he needed me to be there. But I am going to make all of this up to him. But I am not going to lose Eric to you, and there's nothing-- nothing that you can do to possibly make that happen.
Owen: Is Nick gone?
Owen: Okay. Listen, I went to the drug store, and I got one of these home pregnancy tests.
Bridget: Oh, my goodness.
Owen: Look, I know-- I know the odds are you're not pregnant. But the only way to know for sure is if you take this test.
Bridget: I don't know, Owen. I don't know if I can handle it if I am. What if--
Owen: Look, no. Don't even say it. You're not.
Bridget: How could I possibly be so stupid?
Owen: You--you had a lot on your mind.
Bridget: Yeah, that's not an excuse. I'm a doctor. I know that you're supposed to take those pills every single day. And I also mixed an herbal supplement without figuring out what the drug interactions were? Worst of all, I cheated on my husband.
Owen: Stop. You know what? Stop beating yourself up. All right, you've done enough of that. Oh, my God, you're shaking.
Bridget: I'm really scared. I'm really scared. I don't know what all this could mean.
Owen: Look, if it turns out that you are pregnant--
Bridget: Yeah, it would turn my world with nick upside down. But I can't be. I can't be, right? My body has just been under a lot of stress. Maybe it's just off-- off-kilter, out of whack.
Owen: Yeah, I mean, that--that's what it seems like is happening. I mean, it-it--come on. Think about everything you went through lately.
Bridget: Yeah, you're right. (Sighs) you're right. You have to be right
Owen: But I still think you need to take this test. You are wound way too tight. It's not healthy. Come on, I mean, think about it. All this worrying, all this anxiety is most likely for nothing.
Bridget: What if I am? What if I am pregnant? Maybe I should just wait a few days--
Owen: Listen to me. No. No. All right, waiting is even worse. Come on. You need to know. Come on, look at you. You're--you're freaking out. I hate seeing you this way. You've got to put your mind at ease. Besides, Nick and Jackie might catch on, and then they're gonna pick up on something.
Bridget: No. No, they canít. They canít.
Owen: All right, well, then you need to take this test. You need to know for sure. Come on. It's the only way. Look, you got to do this for yourself.
Owen: Please do it. It's the only way.
Bridget: Okay. I'll take the test. I need to know.
Owen: Come here.
