Ridge: Good morning.
Brooke: (Groans) Good morning. (Sighs) Please tell me it's Saturday.
Ridge: If I did, I'd be lying.
Brooke: (Sighs) That's okay. You can lie to me.
Ridge: Okay, it's Saturday.
Brooke: Mm. Did we wake up someplace far off and exotic?
Ridge: If you think Cleveland is exotic, yeah.
Ridge: Okay, how about, like, Bora-Bora?
Brooke: Oh, yeah, that's nice. Lounging in the sand under the sun, then retiring to our thatched-roof bungalow over the turquoise waters to make love for hours and hours.
Ridge: I'll call the pilot.
Brooke: (Chuckles) That would be nice.
Ridge: You know, we don't have to go to a deserted island somewhere to make love all day.
Brooke: (Sighs) I know. That's true. You've proven that many, many times. Mm. (Sighs)
Ridge: Where'd you go?
Brooke: I-- I don't know. I just keep worrying, you know, about Donna and my parents in that house and Stephanie in the guesthouse. It is a recipe for disaster.
Pam: You gotta be joking. Stephen and Beth are in the main house?
Stephanie: They showed up out of the blue.
Pam: A-And then Donna just convinced Eric to let 'em stay?
Stephanie: Yeah, I was hoping that I could get him to rethink that decision today. You want some juice?
Pam: (Scoffs) This is just what you need, Steph--more Logans. (Scoffs)
Stephen: Eric, I want to thank you again for opening up your home to us.
Eric: You and Beth are always welcome here. Always, Stephen.
Katie: We want to spend as much time with our mother as we can, while she still knows who we are.
Katie: What is the lace? She seems to be clinging to it obsessively.
Donna: It's-- it's how she keeps us with her at all times, even when her-- her memory's confused. (Sighs)
Katie: She's trying to hold on.
Stephen: It's a battle she's not winning. You girls are the most important thing in her life right now. That's why she's sewn your pictures into that lace. It's a huge comfort to her. She can't bear to be without it.
Katie: Mother, do you need anything? You want some tea?
Beth: No. I don't like tea.
Beth: You're-- you're Rick... my grandson.
Rick: (Chuckles) That's right. It's good to have you back.
Beth: Me, too.
Hope: That's beautiful lace--
Beth: Don't! Who are you?
Rick: Uh, Grandma, it's okay. This is--this is-- this is Hope. Do you remember Hope?
Beth: No. Hope?
Hope: Yeah. Yeah. I-I came to visit you and Grandpa last year in Paris over spring break. You--you took me to the Louvre and... you know what? It was a while ago, so...
Rick: Yeah, my, uh, my little sister's growing up so fast. (Chuckles)
Ridge: You know, I could call in sick today.
Brooke: The C.E.O. calling in sick? I don't think that's gonna fly.
Ridge: Don't be such a party pooper. Just give it a try.
Brooke: I would love nothing more than to lie in bed with you all day. But I really need to go check on my mother.
Ridge: Her condition has gotten worse so quickly. I know that's gotta be hard for you to see her that way.
Brooke: She seems to get worse with every visit.
Ridge: I'm so sorry, Logan. I know you're worried about her.
Brooke: Yes. (Sighs) I am. I am worried about her. But I'm also worried about your mother and the trouble she might cause.
Ridge: I think maybe I better go over to the guesthouse and have a talk with Mother. I know she and Beth haven't been the best of friends over these years, but I have to believe that Mother would at least be a little understanding about what's going on now.
Stephanie: My heart goes out to Beth. I mean, I can't even begin to imagine a family having to deal with this terrible Alzheimerís.
Pam: I know. I know. I mean, you can't help but feel for the poor woman. But the timing just couldn't be more awful. You just did that beautiful tribute to Eric. You brought that man to tears, Steph.
Stephanie: I know he really appreciated it. He said he loved me. I told him, "I'll love you always."
Pam: Right. And then "Team Logan" just arrives out of nowhere and blows the whole thing out of the water. Kind of a "coinkydink." Think about it, Steph. You move into the guesthouse, and then suddenly, the place is just crawling with Logans?
Stephanie: Well, I am a little concerned that Donnaís going to use her mother's illness to keep Eric tied to her.
Pam: Exactly. So there's really only one thing that you can do. Fumigate.
Katie: (Sighs) Mom's slipping away even faster than I thought.
Stephen: Her memory goes in and out. We lose a little more of her every day.
Donna: Well, I'm glad that you brought her here to be with us, Dad.
Stephen: Honey, being with you girls is the best thing for her right now-- where she feels loved and secure. She deserves to be safe and comfortable now.
Donna: Well, I ca-- can't exactly promise that with Stephanie lurking around.
Stephen: She cannot afford another altercation with that woman. Last night took a terrible toll on her. We have to keep Stephanie away from your mother.
Stephanie: Oh, you're all here. Good. There's, uh, something I'd, um, I'd like to discuss with all of you.
(Knock on door)
Pam: Come in. Hi.
Ridge: Hey, Pam, is my mother here?
Pam: Nope, she's over at the main house trying to get those Logans to hit the road.
Ridge: Oh, I don't think it's such a good idea for her to be over there.
Pam: (Scoffs) Somebody's gotta put 'em in their place. Leave it to my big sister, show 'em who's boss around here.
Ridge: Do me a favor, and don't encourage my mother to do that kind of thing, all right?
Pam: She has got every right to be upset about the fact that Stephen and Beth just moved into that house.
Ridge: Look, Beth is very sick. Stephen and Beth just need to be with their daughters right now. That's all.
Pam: I know. Everybody feels really bad about what's happening to Beth. But don't you find it just a teeny bit suspicious that Stephen decides to move into that house just when your mother and father are getting close again? I smell a rat, and her name is Donna.
Ridge: I'd better get over there.
Donna: Stephanie, please. You are not welcome here.
Rick: Yeah, Stephanie, please. You know what we're all going through here.
Stephanie: Oh, Brooke. Look, of course I realize this is a very difficult time for your whole family. You--you want to gather around your mother and show her all the love and support that you can. I just don't think this is necessarily the best place for her to be.
Brooke: That really isn't your choice to make, Stephanie.
Stephen: This is Donna and Ericís home, not yours.
Stephanie: Eric, this is an extraordinary decision.
Eric: Look, Stephen and Beth are Donnaís family. I'm not gonna turn them away.
Ridge: What's going on?
Brooke: Your mother doesn't want our parents to stay here.
Katie: She wants to send them packing.
Ridge: Mother, you gotta try and be reasonable here.
Stephanie: Well, that's exactly what I'm trying to do. It isn't as though they've just come for a weekend in the country. Beth is ill, and no one denies that. I just think it's too much for Eric to take on.
Donna: Stephanie, that's not really your problem now, though, is it? You're here temporarily. Now if Eric wants to provide a place for my mother, then it's his decision.
Eric: That's what I've chosen to do, Stephanie.
Stephanie: I just hope you haven't felt pressured to do that.
Stephen: There was no pressure, Stephanie. He graciously offered.
Stephanie: Well, of course, that's Eric, though, isn't it? He would do it because he thinks it's the right thing to do.
Eric: I can speak for myself.
Stephanie: But, you know, it isn't just her family. There'll be doctors, nurses, hospice people.
Donna: Okay, stop. Ste-- Stephanie, stop.
Stephanie: It could go on for years.
Donna: You're upsetting my mo--
Stephanie: Haven't you been through enough with this family? These girls are takers. You've seen it over and over.
Eric: Don't do this. Don't dredge all that up again.
Stephanie: Well, they're here now, though, and they're taking advantage.
Eric: Stephanie, don't do this.
Beth: Shut up! Stephanie, you shut up!
Stephanie: I apologize. I know you're ill. I don't mean to upset you.
Beth: You don't care.
Beth: You are so evil to my girls.
Beth: And you-- you make her go. You make--go. Make her go.
Stephen: Yes, yes, yes.
Beth: Just you--you leave!
Stephen: Sweetheart, calm down. Calm down.
Beth: She hates our children.
Stephen: No, no, no.
Beth: She hates our children.
Stephen: No, no, calm down.
Brooke: Mom, Mom, it's okay. We're all okay.
Beth: No. No, you're not okay. You're not okay.
Stephanie: This is insanity. It's gonna turn your father's life upside down if she stays here.
Donna: My mother is suffering, Stephanie. My God, can--can't you see that? Can't you have any compassion for a dying woman? She needs peace. She needs her family. Why are you trying to make this worse?
Stephanie: I'm not trying to do that. I-I tried to explain to you last night. I believe that if she stays here, that's what will make things worse.
Donna: What? Even you-- how can you not understand a woman's need to be with her family?
Stephanie: But your mother doesn't know what she needs now. She doesn't even know her own situation.
Donna: There-- there's no reaching you. My God, just leave us in peace.
Ridge: Mother, come on. Let's go back to the guesthouse.
Stephanie: Fine. Eric, we have to talk about this.
Eric: Not now.
Donna: She left. She left, Mother. It's okay.
Brooke: Mom, everything's fine now, okay? Stephanie's gone.
Hope: It was really great of you, the way you stood up to her like that.
Beth: (Sighs) You're--you're kind. You're kind.
Brooke: Uh, let's take Mom up to her room. Okay?
Brooke: We can catch up there.
Stephen: Come on, honey. Let's go upstairs.
Stephen: We'll go upstairs.
Katie: All right.
Eric: This is a hard time for you, huh?
Donna: She's slipping away. My God, we're losing her.
Eric: I know. I'm sorry, honey. I'm sorry.
Donna: It just-- it just breaks my heart. It breaks my heart to see her like this.
Eric: I wish there was more I could do. I-I really do.
Donna: No, but-- but there is. Eric, there is. My God, she-- she can't live like this. Please, ask Stephanie to go. Please. Just--I'm begging you. I'm begging you. Just ask her to go.
Stephanie: Thank you, honey.
Pam: Hey. Oh, how'd it go? Did you send 'em packing?
Stephanie: (Chuckles) No, there are more-- there are more of them over there now than ever before. It's like a Logan convention.
Ridge: Come on, Mother. This is not an easy time for them.
Stephanie: I have great sympathy for what they are going through. Believe me. I just don't think anybody benefits by them being here.
Ridge: Obviously, Dad doesn't feel that way.
Stephanie: Believe me, what we saw today is just the beginning.
Pam: They could be here for months, Ridge. Donna's gonna keep 'em around just as long as she needs backup. Trust me.
Ridge: So what are you saying, Pam? That Donna just brought them here to try and save her marriage?
Stephanie: No. No. But she is taking advantage of the situation.
Pam: And now she's got them all over there distracting your dad from the one woman he really loves. Bingo.
Stephanie: Pam. I'm worried how this is going to affect Eric, how it's going to affect everyone. Just when I thought he was about finished with Donna... I don't know. Itís.... I suppose eventually he'll see the uselessness, the hopelessness of the whole situation, not just for himself, but for Beth, too. Those Logan girls.
Pam: Boy, I wonder how they sleep at night.
Pam: Well, I know how they sleep at night.
Stephanie: Their sexuality is all that they have going for them. I mean, do they ever grow up? Do they ever mature? (Sighs) Their mother never helped them that way. It never stopped them. Now here she is, living in my house.
Pam: Which is so totally unfair.
Stephanie: How the hell did we get to this place?
Stephanie: I mean, Eric, you know, isn't entirely without blame. He can be so easily seduced. One of those girls shows up in a bikini or a teddy with a bottle of honey, and he's off to the races.
Pam: You've had to fight 'em off your whole life, haven't you, Steph?
Stephanie: I'm not gonna let 'em get away with it this time, though. Here I think-- (Laughs) I think Eric is just, you know, like, peeling Donna off of him finally, that he's really seeing things for what they are, you know? We get the company back, the--the--the future seems to be settling into what it should be. At least, I thought it was.
Ridge: (Sighs) Hey, Dad. You hangin' in there?
Eric: I'm trying.
Ridge: You're in a rough position. Caught in the middle between Mother and Donna.
Eric: (Chuckles) Oh, yes. Your mother wants Donna gone, and Donna and her family want Stephanie gone.
Ridge: I hate to ask, but what are you gonna do?
Eric: I feel for Donna and for her family. But I don't want to hurt your mother either.
(Knock on door)
Stephanie: Pammy, is that you, honey? Did you forget something? Pam? Oh.
Donna: Hi. May I come in?
Stephanie: (Sighs) Yeah.
Donna: Pam was here?
Stephanie: Yes, she just went for a walk. She'll be right back. What do you want, Donna?
Donna: Look, I-I need you to understand that I'm-- I'm here for my family. I know we're not exactly top of your list, but, look, we are going through a terrible time, Stephanie. We're watching our mother deteriorate right before our eyes.
Stephanie: I understand that, Donna. I mean, Alzheimerís is just a terrible, terrible thing. I know.
Donna: Okay, so you should understand that she needs to be here. I mean, she needs her family. We--we need this time with her.
Stephanie: Of course you do, and you should have it... just not here at the Forrester home.
Donna: Look, just forget about me. Forget about us. Forget about my marriage or your feelings for Eric. This is about a woman whose memories, whose--whose mind is-- have been ripped away at far too young of an age. Now I know how much family means to you, Stephanie. Now wouldn't you want your family around you at a time like this?
Stephanie: Yes. But on the other hand, you have to realize how much this home means to me. This is where my family-- this is where I raised my children. This is my home.
Donna: Stephanie, this is n-- this is not your home anymore. Look, my mother cannot-- cannot do this with you here. She cannot have another run-in with you. I mean, that could destroy her, Stephanie. I'm not going anywhere, and neither is she. You need to move out.
Stephanie: It's a mistake to keep your mother here. She needs professional care, Donna. It's wrong for Beth, for Eric, for everybody involved. What you need to do for everyone's best interest is take your family, leave this house, and you should get out of Ericís life.
