Eric: Morning. You have a cup of that for me?
Stephanie: I absolutely do.
Eric: Oh, bless you.
Stephanie: Did you have trouble sleeping, too?
Eric: (Sighs) Yeah.
Stephanie: God, after everything that's happened... (Sighs)
Eric: Just, uh, wondering what's going on with my marriage, and wondering how Donna's doing.
Katie: Hey, honey.
Bill: Can I get you something to eat, Donna?
Donna: No. None for me.
Katie: Honey, you gotta eat something.
Donna: I-I'm not hungry.
Katie: This is hard. This is horrible, but mom wouldn't want us to fall apart.
Donna: You weren't there, Katie. I found her. I tried to save her. I tried so hard.
Katie: Oh, honey, I know. I know.
Donna: I just--I can't-- I can't believe she's gong. She's gone. (Sobs) (Sniffles)
Bridget: Uh, I've just got a few more things to do here, Mom, and then I'll be right over. But hang in there, okay? I love you, too.
Jackie: (Gasps) Oh, there you are. Oh, darling. We're so, so sorry to hear about your grandmother's death. Please, would you convey our sympathies to your family?
Bridget: Yeah, I will. Thank you.
Jackie: Mm. Now listen, if there's anything, anything we can do, you let us know. You just say it, okay?
Owen: Look, I'm so sorry.
Bridget: Thanks. (Sighs)
Katie: Uh, I talked to Brooke. She should be here any minute.
Donna: Did you talk to Dad?
Katie: Yeah, he says he's gonna catch up to us later on.
Donna: He shouldn't be alone today.
Katie: I know, but he says he needs to do this on his own.
Marcus: Oh, Mom.
Marcus: I'm so sorry...
Marcus: About everything.
Katie: Hey. (Clears throat) Come on in. There's, uh, food and coffee.
Brooke: Thanks for doing this.
Katie: Sure. Of course. Is Bridget coming?
Brooke: Uh, she's on her way. Yeah. How you doing? Eric didn't come with you this morning?
Donna: Oh, um, I slept here last night.
Brooke: Oh, Donna. (Sighs)
Stephanie: O.J.? There you go.
Eric: Thank you. The style section for you?
Stephanie: Mm-hmm. Thanks.
Stephanie: (Chuckles) Old habits.
Eric: Well, they're comforting at a time like this. I called Donna again while you were in the kitchen. Her phone's going straight to voice mail.
Stephanie: Eric, she'll call you when she's ready.
Stephanie: She knows you want to talk to her.
Eric: I hope she's all right. That's all.
Stephanie: She's with her sisters.
Eric: I should call Brooke.
Stephanie: Eric, she knows exactly the kind of person that you are. She knows that if she picks up the phone and calls you and tells you that she needs you, you'll be there lickety-split.
Eric: You do know what to say to me, don't you?
Bridget: Where's Dad?
Brooke: He's not coming.
Bill: Your father decided supporting Stephanie was more important than supporting his wife.
Bill: His loyalty should be to Donna.
Bridget: Well, it is, isn't it?
Donna: He, uh, stood up for Stephanie... again. After everything that happened, he... he defended her.
Bridget: Donna, I'm really sorry. I'm so sorry.
Brooke: Yesterday was a horrible day. Everybody was in shock.
Rick: I'm sure he feels awful about it today.
Hope: Aunt Donna, has he called you?
Donna: I don't know. I-I turned off my phone. I...
Brooke: Donna, he does love you. Stephanie is just playing on his sympathies and his memories, but you are in his heart.
Donna: I-I want to talk to him. I do. I really do, but I... I can't face her. I can't face Stephanie. Not--not today.
Bridget: Is Stephanie still in the guesthouse?
Donna: No, he asked her to leave.
Katie: Well, that's good. That's positive, right?
Donna: Yeah, uh, yeah, I guess I-- I should go see him.
Brooke: He's your husband. He'll support you.
Marcus: Yeah, Mom. I can drive you over there.
Donna: Oh, no. It's--it's okay, sweetie. It--really, I'll be fine. But thank you.
Donna: (Sighs) All right.
Katie: I love you.
Donna: (Sighs) Thank you.
Bill: You will be fine. You stick to your guns. You're Ericís wife. Stephanie lost the title of "Mrs. Eric Forrester" a long time ago.
Donna: (Sighs) Bye.
Brooke: Okay. Bye.
Eric: Wait, wait, wait, wait. I'm not done with that.
Stephanie: (Chuckles) You know, when I was living with Taylor, Tom would say to me in the morning, "Grandma, don't be poundin' the caffeine." I'm like...
Eric: (Chuckles) "Pounding the caffeine"?
Stephanie: I know. (Chuckles)
Eric: You enjoyed that, didn't you?
Stephanie: I certainly did.
Eric: Having that time with Taylor and the kids.
Stephanie: Yeah, it was great.
Stephanie: But, of course, it wasn't my home. Not like this is.
Eric: Yeah, a lot of memories in this place for both of us.
Eric: Not all of them good.
Stephanie: No. You're not gonna go to work, are you?
Eric: No. Are you? Are you going in?
Stephanie: What, and leave you alone? Absolutely not.
Eric: Thank you.
Stephanie: Thank you for asking me to stay last night. It meant a lot.
Eric: It meant a lot to me to know that you were out there in the guesthouse.
Stephanie: Well, I've got a couple things I'd like to do. I'll be back in a little while.
Stephanie: You'll be all right?
Eric: Yes, I'll be all right.
Man: Good, yeah. Right here. Eyes right here. Great. Great. Great.
(Camera shutter clicking)
Man: Nice. (Speaking indistinctly)
Whip: Okay, great job.
Whip: Excellent work. Owen, buddy, you really went for it.
Whip: I mean, you made me believe that you'd do almost anything for this woman.
Owen: Are you kidding me? I would do anything for this woman. Anything and everything.
Hope: Oh, is that you and Grandma?
Brooke: Yeah, modeling my favorite dress. (Chuckles)
Katie: I remember when she told you that you had to pass it down to Donna. (Chuckles)
Brooke: Oh, I was heartbroken.
Katie: You had practically worn it to ribbons. And I knew I would never get my turn in it.
Brooke: Well, it wasn't so much about the dress. It was really about the day. I mean, mom took me to go buy a dress, and it was just us. Just her and me. And we had lunch at the department store tea room, and it was very clean and white, crispy tablecloths with the napkins set just perfectly. I mean, mom must have... (sighs) must have worked for weeks to be able to make that day happen. (Sniffles)
Katie: Donna and I were so jealous. (Chuckles)
Brooke: Yeah, but you guys had your turn. And mom was so good about that, you know? She was so good about each one of us having our special memories with her. I don't think I really appreciated everything she did as a mother. Not really. Not until I became a mother myself. (Sighs) (sniffles) Your grandmother was really special. She taught us a lot. She taught us girls how to sacrifice, how to work really, really hard, and she taught us that it was very important to take care of each other and to love each other, even if we didn't really like each other at times. (Chuckles) But...
Brooke: Most importantly, she... (sighs) she taught us that we need to stick together as a family. She loved you all, all of you, so very much. (Sniffles) I just... (sighs) I don't want you to ever forget that. Okay?
Donna: I'm looking for some justice. I would think that my husband would stand by my side. I need you to stand by my side. I need you-- I need you to say that Stephanie is responsible. Say it! Just...
Eric: No, Donna. I canít. I'm sorry, but I canít.
Eric: Donna? I've been worried about you. I-I've been calling you. I've been leaving messages. I've been, uh, I-I-I've been worried about you. Oh, look at you. Here. Mm.
Eric: Come on. Come sit down. I want to talk to you.
Eric: I, uh, I feel awful. I-I feel very badly about how I-- about how I handled things yesterday, and, um, there's something you need to hear me say. And I should have said it yesterday. Your mother was wonderful. She and I shared a... a long, long history, and--and a very complicated one, and... and it wasn't always positive, but we always treated each other with--with dignity and--and with respect. That's why it was so hard to see what Alzheimerís did to her, and--and it affected me doubly because of how much it hurt you and--and the affect it had on her. Oh, your mother was resilient...
Donna: (Sighs) (Sniffles)
Eric: I-in the best sense of the word. She was--she was a fighter. And when I saw what Alzheimerís was--was doing to her, I just... she couldn't beat it. And as much as she was a fighter, she never stopped defending her family and you and everyone else.
Eric: I see that same spirit. I s--I see that in you.
Eric: I do.
Donna: I... I was wrong. I shouldn't have walked out last night. I'm sorry. I shouldn't have left you here all alone.
Katie: It was good talking about mom like that. I think it helped.
Bill: It's too bad Donna wasn't here for it.
Katie: I think it was more important for her to talk to her husband. I know you've never been Ericís biggest fan.
Bill: Look, I don't expect the guy to be the perfect husband. But when you're involved in a tug-of-war between your wife and something else, you let go of the something else, no matter what it is.
Eric: No more talk about mistakes.
Donna: (Sighs) I know. I know, but I've made so many of them. I mean, not just walking out on you, but leaving my mother all alone.
Donna: I mean, how-- how could we have done that? It just--
Eric: Your mother asked for some dignity. I mean, we had-- who could have known what was gonna happen?
Donna: I just keep w-- wondering if we could have prevented it. I mean...
Donna: I just keep thinking about this again and again in my head. If we just followed her, maybe I could have stopped her from confronting Stephanie. I--
Eric: Donna, donít. Donít. Look, I-I don't want to argue today.
Donna: I don't either. I don't either, especially when I need you now more than ever. (Sighs)
Eric: I'm here for you. I love you. You know that.
Donna: But you cannot be here for me and for Stephanie at the same time. And I need to know where we stand, Eric. I--yesterday, you... you defended her. I--she admitted-- she admitted that she was the last person who saw my mother alive...
Eric: Donna, hon--honey--
Donna: Yet--yet you were not suspicious at all.
Eric: Donna, look, Stephanie has done some terrible things. I'm... (chuckles) I'm not deluding myself about that. But she's not cap-- look, I don't want us to talk about Stephanie. This is not about her. We should be concentrating on you. You're grieving, and I want to help you. I want to be here for you, all right?
(Front door opens)
Stephanie: Eric, I just remembered the dry cleaners pick up today, and I was wondering if there's anything that you--
Donna: (Stammers) Y-you--you let her stay here? She--
Stephanie: Well, I didn't think that Eric should be alone.
Eric: Donna, look, uh--
Donna: No. No.
Eric: Would you give us some time? Thank you.
Donna: I-I-I-I don't-- I don't want to hear this, Eric. I don't want to hear this.
Eric: Let me explain.
Donna: No, Eric. (Sighs) My mother just died here yesterday, and you invite her-- her worst enemy to stay with us? My God, she ripped my parents' marriage apart. She--she--she tried to do the same to us. You're my husband. You vowed to--to love and honor and protect me and... (sighs) how could you?
Stephanie: Donna, look.
Donna: Just-- you stay out of this! You stay out of this! This is between me and my husband!
Eric: Stephanie, look, please--
Donna: My God, having this woman is disrespectful to me. It's disrespectful to the memory of my mother! (Sighs) Look, if you want this marriage, Eric, if you want us-- and I love you. I want this--but if you do not sever all ties with her, that's it.
