Donna: Why are you doing this? Where is your compassion?
Stephanie: Donna, I have nothing but compassion and concern for your mother.
Donna: Then for the love of God, why are you making this harder? You saw what--what being near to you did to her. And being in the same room-- how agitated she got.
Stephanie: You're right. We shouldn't be anywhere near each other on this property, let alone in the same room. Why do you want to subject her to that?
Donna: Eric is not going to ask me to leave. You need to leave, Stephanie. You--you won't be comfortable here.
Stephanie: Don't worry about my comfort. You be worried about the fact that you've placed your husband right in the middle of this mess. And you need to do the right thing here-- the right thing for Eric and for your mother, and that is picking up your family and leaving his house.
Beth: I don't want to go.
Stephen: No, honey, just--just lie back.
Beth: I have to--no, no.
Stephen: You need to rest.
Beth: I canít. I can't rest, not until I know the girls are safe.
Stephen: No, honey. You have to lie down. Just lie down.
Brooke: Mom, it's okay. We're gonna be fine. We can handle Stephanie. Don't worry about it.
Beth: You have to be careful. You have to be careful. You have to be--
Stephen: No, honey, listen. Listen to me. Listen to me. We are not going to let Stephanie bother you anymore. Okay? It's not her home anymore. She doesn't decide who stays. She doesn't decide who goes. That's up to Donna and Eric, and they want you to stay, sweetheart. Donna and Eric want you to stay here. Stephanie will have to go. Okay? Stephanie will have to go.
Beth: She'll have to go.
Stephen: That's my girl.
Beth: She'll have to go. She'll have to go.
Stephen: There we go.
Beth: (Breathing heavily)
Ridge: Thanks, Madison. I'll call Signor Giordano from the jet, reassure him myself. All right, thanks. Sorry for the interruption. Apparently our good friend Piero in Roma is a little nervous about what to expect from me from my new position.
Eric: So your trip's still on then?
Ridge: Yeah. As the newly reinstated C.E.O., I have to make an appearance at Forrester International. Dad, I must say, everyone's missed your regular visits. My father is a true living legend.
Ridge: How many sons can say that, huh?
Ridge: How many wives can say that about their husbands?
Eric: I get the idea you're not talking about Donna now.
Ridge: I know what's been happening between you and Mother. You two are getting along better than you have in years. That's why you can't bring yourself to ask her to leave...
Ridge: Even though Donna is pressuring you to do just that.
Whip: 2,001... 2,002... 2,003...
Whip: Shh. You're gonna make me lose track. 2,004...
Taylor: Of what?
Whip: (Sighs) Well, if you must know, I am--I'm counting ways.
Taylor: You're counting the ways of what?
Whip: Mm-hmm. Yeah. You know, the ways. "How do I love thee? Let me count the ways." You know, I think I was up to 2,000-- oh, see? You made me lose track.
Taylor: What a minute. Wait a minute.
Whip: I'm gonna have to start all over again.
Taylor: You've come up with 2,000 reasons why you love me?
Whip: You want me to recite 'em all? 'Cause I can. I mean, every last one. Or maybe I can just sum it up with one.
Whip: Mm. Ahh.
Taylor: Mm. Who would have thought-- my husband, the romantic?
Whip: Mm, well, you know, I've always been a big fan of William Shakespeare, you know. (British accent) "How do I love thee? Let me count the ways." (Chuckles) (Normal voice) I tell you what, the guy sure knew how to woo a fair maiden.
Taylor: The guy...
Taylor: Was a lady.
Taylor: Mm-hmm. Elizabeth Barrett Browning wrote that, not Billy, as in William, as in Shakespeare.
Whip: I knew that.
Whip: Yeah, I-I was-- I was just trying to impress you with another name of another author, um...
Whip: That had nothing to do with... you know what? Why don't I just do what I do to impress?
Taylor: Mm. Mm-hmm.
Whip: Mm. Maybe.
Ridge: Dad, Mother wants you back. That's obvious.
Ridge: I think you both want that, too. I want it for both of you. Look, I realize the timing's not perfect, but you and Mother have waited long enough. This is now your moment. Don't let anyone keep you from each other.
Donna: Stephanie, can you please just for a minute, just stop focusing on getting rid of the Logans? You saw how my mother is, okay? You saw how agitated she was. Just being in the same room with you could-- can I just ask you to do something for a dying woman and move out?
Stephanie: You can't start giving into your mother's every whim.
Donna: Wait, aren't you the same woman who-- who took her mother out to Paradise Cove so she could die the way she wanted?
Stephanie: My mother was actively in the process of dying. Your mother's gonna live for years.
Donna: Okay, the point is that you respected her wishes. You wanted--you wanted to make her comfortable. You wanted to give her peace. Well, that's what my mother can have here in this home. This is the best place--
Stephanie: No, it isnít. It is not the best place. She needs a medical facility. Donna, the rigors of caring for someone who has Alzheimerís disease, I mean, it's--it's just overwhelming. She needs to be in a place that's controlled, confined, an environment where she can't just get up and wander away...
Stephanie: And get lost or get hurt or--
Donna: Okay. Okay. We--we--we will get that. We will get that help for her, but it cannot happen with you here.
Stephanie: You're actually going to make your husband your mother's caretaker?
Donna: Okay, I am not-- I'm not forcing Eric to do anything against his will.
Stephanie: I think you are. I think maybe you just don't realize it. Let's be honest. Are you using your mother's illness, your family's presence here, to keep Eric tied to you? I'm not leaving. I'm here at his invitation, and I am not going anywhere. So this means it's up to you.
You, Donna, have got to start thinking long-term for your mother and getting help for her, and that does not mean being in a private residence. The best thing that you can do is take your family, leave, let your husband have his home and his life with his family here, and I am not just thinking about myself, like you are. I am not. I am really trying to think what's best for your mother, for Eric, for all of you.
Whip: Mm, now aren't you glad that we played hooky today, hmm?
Taylor: Mm. Yeah, but that doesn't let you off the hook. You're still gonna give me that honeymoon you promised me.
Whip: Oh. Well, let's see. How does, um, how does... April in Paris sound? Doesn't sound exactly like that, but...
Taylor: You're taking me to Paris?
Whip: Now, now, now. Take it easy here, girl. It's one of the many romantic locales I'm considering.
Whip: Of course, um, I am gonna have to check with Ridge and Stephanie. After all, they are your new partners. Or are they your bosses? I want to make sure they approve.
Whip: Okay. Okay.
Taylor: Mm-hmm. I do wonder how it's going over there, though.
Whip: Mm. Oh, at Ericís house, you mean? Hmm.
Taylor: Mm, yeah, when Stephanie called me last night, she said that Beth and Stephen showed up, and she sounded... (Growls)
Whip: Yeah, well, it sounds like she's probably fit to be tied, but can you blame her?
Whip: I mean, she moves into Ericís guesthouse, at his invitation no less.
Whip: No sooner does she get her bags dropped...
Taylor: And then the entire Logan family shows up, and that's a recipe for disaster, given the history of that family with Stephanie. Trust me.
Ridge: I'm sorry, Dad. I don't want to make this tougher on you than it already is. It's just that seeing you and Mother at the tribute--
Eric: Don't, Ridge. Donít. Look, I-I care very deeply for your mother, but I also have a wife who's going through some very dark days right now.
Ridge: I get that. I get that. You're in a bind. It's just that I've spoken to Mother, and she has expectations. She has hopes, maybe even a few dreams. What is she supposed to think?
Eric: You're right. You're right. I'm not being fair to your mother. I'm not being fair to Donna either. I've got to change that. I'm gonna change that right now.
Donna: (Quietly) How--how's she doing?
Brooke: (Quietly) She's calmed down, for now anyway. So did you talk to Stephanie?
Donna: Stephanie... (Sighs) she's not gonna budge. No matter what I say, I-I-I can't get through to her.
Brooke: What about Eric?
Donna: I, uh, I'm-- I came up the back way.
Brooke: You're avoiding your husband?
Donna: Well, he's-- he's been supportive so far. But, Brooke, what if it's out of pity? What if it's not out of love? I mean, look, this is what Stephanie said. What if--what if it's true? What if that's all my husband feels for me anymore? But he just can't manage to tell me because of... (Sighs) Brooke, if--if this happens, if it's true, I just... I don't think I'm gonna be able to take it. I don't think I'm gonna be able to take it with everything else going on. I really donít.
Brooke: It's okay.
Stephen: (Whispers) It's okay.
Eric: Donna's right. This situation's impossible. It's, uh, it's untenable, and something has to be done about it. And I'm the one who has to do it.
Donna: Hi, Mom. Can I get you something? Um, another pillow, an afghan or something?
Beth: No, Brooke. Oh, no. No, no. You're Donna.
Beth: (Chuckles) You're Donna.
Donna: I love you so much.
Beth: And I love you.
Beth: Never forget that. Never. Don't forget that.
Donna: (Sighs) I wonít.
Stephen: (Whispers) Donna. Come here.
Stephen: (Whispers) Donna, I know. I know.
Donna: Daddy. (Sobs)
Stephen: I know. It kills me, too. You just feel so helpless. But we have to be strong. Okay? We have to be strong for her and for each other.
Stephen: Whatever time she gives us, that's gonna be precious. We'll make the most of it.
Stephanie: So I'm guessing Donna went running to you after she was here.
Eric: No, no, she didnít. I haven't seen her, actually.
Eric: Was any blood spilled?
Stephanie: (Chuckles) No. Although it got rather intense. But you're right. This situation cannot continue. You know, it's-- it's not good for anyone.
Stephanie: But I'm most concerned about you and the stress that you're going to have to deal with. I worry about your health. I don't want to lose you. You know, Stephenís going to lose Beth, sooner rather than later, and... that's, of course, why you couldn't turn them away.
Eric: So good. You understand why I've asked them to stay.
Eric: (Sighs) But you're wrong about one thing.
Stephanie: Just one thing?
Eric: (Laughs) Yeah. It's not the stress and strain on me only. It's--it's--it's you and the-- and the--the strain it's could cause on you. I mean, I didn't want that for you when I asked you to move into the guesthouse here. What I was hoping w-- well, to be quite honest, I'm not sure what I was hoping. Uh, I thought that with you here, uh... I will always want you close to me.
Stephanie: Well, that tells me everything I need to know. I knew this day would come, and it has. Thank you so much. Oh, thank you.
Donna: I'm so glad you came on a walk with me, Mom. Fresh air feels so good, doesn't it?
Beth: Oh, the-- what is this flower? It's, um, what's it called?
Donna: It's freesia.
Beth: Freesia. Yes. Oh, I always loved freesia.
Donna: You always did. You know, I just wanted some, uh, special alone time with you, mom. I haven't had a lot of it since you and Dad have been here. Mom, uh, you shouldn't-- are you--oh, Mom, it's okay. It's okay.
Donna: Mom, it's okay. Come on. Let's go. Let's go somewhere else.
Beth: Okay, we'll go.
Donna: Mom, it's okay. It's okay.
Ridge: Will you be okay while I'm in Europe?
Brooke: (Sighs) Just come home as soon as you can. There's just so much going on here, and... if something were to happen to my mom...
Ridge: (Sighs) I love you. I love you very much.
Eric: Stephanie, look--
Stephanie: I know. I know. This is a very sensitive time, even if Donnaís mother weren't dying.
Stephanie: But as sad a time as this is, I can't help but say how happy a time it is for us. I mean, this is something the children have wanted for so long.
Eric: No, wait. Wait. Wait. Stephanie, wait. You're getting ahead of yourself here.
Stephanie: Oh? Oh, oh, all right. You don't want-- you don't want to say anything to anyone right now. I understand. Okay. But can we-- well, can I at least tell Ridge before he goes to Europe?
Stephanie: What is it, Eric?
Eric: (Sighs) Look, when I say that I want you in my life and close to me, I mean it. I-I mean every word of it. And we always will be. You know, we have children together. We have our grandchildren. We're running the company together again side by side, the way it always has been, the way it always will be. But, uh... unfortunately, I'm afraid that's all it can be.
Eric: I'm sorry, sweetheart, but--but given everything that's going on, I'm afraid I... I have to ask you to leave, and ask you to m-move in with Pam.
Stephanie: Just as we're be-- you're going to let Donna and her family do this to us?
Eric: Listen. Listen. Listen to me. Listen. I'm not saying it's over. I'm just saying I have to ask you to leave. I love you. I want to run the company together. But Donna is my wife. She's losing her mother, and I can't walk away. I wonít. I won't walk away from her.
