Taylor: This was your idea, Ridge? Using your son and Brooke to-- (Scoffs) To promote the men's line? This is ridiculous. What--what--what is this name? Taboo!
Ridge: It wasn't an easy decision to make. The more I thought about it, it was the only one that made sense.
Taylor: Oh, my God. Oh--oh, my God. Has Brooke’s way of thinking infected your brain, too? No, there is no way I'm going to allow this.
Thomas: It's not up to you, Mother.
Taylor: Sweetheart, I realize that you're an adult now, but in this case, I am right, okay? There's no way I'm going to allow this company to exploit my son with that woman!
Eric: You okay?
Stephanie: Yes, I'm fine.
Eric: How was the CAT scan?
Stephanie: Honey, CAT scans are painless.
Stephanie: (Chuckles) I know how busy you are. You're working on two collections, so I-I want you to go back to the office.
Eric: Well, I'm not too busy to stick around here and listen to the results of your first post-surgical exam. I want to hear that. No, you're right. I'm too busy. Take a cab.
Stephanie: (Chuckles) I'll take the bus.
Eric: You don't know how to take a bus.
Stephanie: What do you mean? Dayzee and I have been taking busses all over town.
Eric: Why? You don't have to do that.
Stephanie: Sweetheart, wouldn't it be a bit disingenuous to show up at a shelter in a chauffer-driven Merce-- Mercedes? Come on. I'll call you when I'm through.
Eric: You don't want me to be here to hear the results of the tests?
Stephanie: Well, it isn't as though, uh, Dr. Lewis is gonna walk in here and say I'm suddenly cured.
Eric: I don't expect that at all. I just, uh, want to know where we stand.
Stephanie: Look, I'm not being negative. I just... I just want us to be realistic.
Eric: Nobody is more realistic than I am.
Stephanie: Really? They're probably gonna have me do chemo and radiation...
Stephanie: So I'll be more than just my usual crabby self.
Eric: I'm aware of that. And I'll be with you through all of it.
Stephanie: Gosh, I might lose my hair.
Eric: I love your hair. Did I ever tell you that?
Eric: I want more years with you, not months, years.
Stephanie: I would imagine they're going to want to do brain surgery for the-- for the tumors.
Eric: Well, we'll face that if we come to it.
Stephanie: I want you to prepare yourself. You know, it's possible that I might not survive something like that.
Eric: If you don't survive, I'll be very disappointed in you.
Stephanie: Would you be serious? I'm talking statistics now. They say that according to--
Dr. Lewis: Shame on you, Stephanie Forrester. You know we don't talk statistics around here. Every case is different.
Stephanie: I know that, and I'm going to fight as hard as I can. I just, um, don't want to raise false hopes.
Dr. Lewis: As long as you keep fighting, there is hope. Nothing's false about that. We live in an age of miracles.
Stephanie: So what are you saying, Dr. Lewis? (Whispers) I'm in need of a miracle?
Thomas: Brooke didn't exploit me, Mom. This whole thing was my idea, and it worked.
Taylor: I thought we were on the same page about this, Ridge. What-- (Scoffs) Now you condone this-- this kiss between your son and--and--and your wife in public?
Ridge: Taylor, it had an impact, one I never would have imagined.
Taylor: I don't care about that. I-I cannot believe you would be putting business before your son's own well-being. What about his reputation? What about his-- his pride and dignity?
Thomas: Whoa, Mom, have you been online? They're talking about this all over the world. It's being discussed in Asia, Europe, Africa. It's everywhere.
Ridge: Look, they started out being fascinated by this kiss, and now they're turning their attention to the clothes. I know it sounds outrageous. I'm not that comfortable with it myself. But you know what? It's working. And I think we'd be fools not to take advantage of it.
Taylor: No, I-I think we would be very irresponsible parents if we did. I mean, to capitalize on your son making out with your wife in public-- how can you not see how wrong that is?
Thomas: Mom, it was just a kiss.
Brooke: We weren't making out, Taylor.
Thomas: Dad asked if we were on board with promoting this, and we said yes.
Taylor: Well, of course Brooke would be on board with it, because she has another opportunity to have outrageous behavior in public. But, Thomas, that's not the way you are, okay? That's not the way I raised you. Why would you want to be a part of this?
Thomas: Because it puts me on the map. Look, I came up with this gimmick, and it's a smash hit. I'm proud of what I've done. I just wish you could be.
Dr. Lewis: Now, Stephanie, you're not going to need a miracle. You may have already had one.
Eric: Well, so the test results are good?
Dr. Lewis: They're promising, Eric. As you know, we did a genetic workup. Stephanie's cancer tissue revealed a mutation that's responding well to the oral chemotherapy pill that she's been taking. The C.T. scan today showed no indication of any recurrence of lung involvement. There are no new tumors.
Stephanie: No new tumors?
Dr. Lewis: So you just continue with the treatment. We'll do another scan in a few weeks, but as of today, your body appears to be responding very positively.
Stephanie: Oh, look who the cat dragged in.
Dayzee: (Laughs) Hi.
Stephanie: Come on in.
Dayzee: Okay. I don't want to interrupt.
Stephanie: No, no, no, no, no, no, I-- (Grunts) I just got some great news.
Stephanie: Yeah. I'm responding to the treatment.
Dayzee: That's amazing. (Chuckles)
Stephanie: It is, isn't it?
Dayzee: It is.
Stephanie: How are you, Cutie Pie?
Dayzee: I'm good.
Dayzee: My friend Jennelle...
Dayzee: She's out of rehab, and, um, she's doing really great, her and the baby.
Stephanie: (Gasps) She got the baby back?
Dayzee: She did.
Stephanie: Oh, Sweetheart.
Dayzee: We got them a room at the shelter. I mean, we're still waiting for it--the studio, but the good thing is, we got them off the streets.
Stephanie: What a great day.
Stephanie: This is good news for everyone.
Dr. Lewis: It certainly is. I have something else to discuss with you. You know the procedure with the tumors in your brain that we scheduled for next month?
Dr. Lewis: There's an opportunity to do it today.
Taylor: Thomas, I-I am so proud of you. I am. You're so creative. You're so talented, just like your father, and you don't need to stoop to this level.
Brooke: Taylor, you are overreacting. It was a P.R. stunt, nothing more.
Taylor: I-I am so tired of hearing your version of-- of everything being twisted around. It makes me sick. You know... (Scoffs) When you did the Brooke’s bedroom line, for example, why did you have to be the one parading around in your underwear instead of hiring a spokesmodel like most companies do? You know why? Because you have no decency. You have no class.
Brooke: And what were the results? It became our most profitable line ever.
Taylor: Fine. Exploit yourself, but you're not exploiting my son.
Thomas: Mother, I am not your adolescent child. Don't treat me like one.
Taylor: I'm not trying to, Sweetheart. This has nothing at all to do with age at all. I'm telling you. You have to believe me. She will take advantage of this.
Thomas: Take advantage how?
Taylor: Are you gonna make me spell that out?
Thomas: Oh, that's right. She's gonna put me under a spell. Brooke, lead me to your boudoir. I can't resist you. Do whatever you want to me.
Taylor: That's not funny.
Thomas: I know. It's crazy. My dad's wife? It's embarrassing to even talk about.
Taylor: Yeah, yeah, it is. I'm telling you that. That's what I'm trying to say. Not only did she seduce your--your father, she seduced your grandfather, your uncle, one daughter's husband, one other daughter's boyfriend. I mean, it's absolutely-- it's sick. And--and she's infected almost every person in this family, except for you, and I am not going to let her do it!
Dr. Lewis: This isn't traditional surgery. No anesthesia. No cutting involved.
Stephanie: There isn't?
Eric: Well, what is the procedure?
Dr. Lewis: It's called gamma knife surgery. It's a treatment that uses highly focused radiation to pinpoint and attack the tumors.
Eric: Is it risky?
Dr. Lewis: Far less so than open brain surgery. There's no cutting, no disfigurement, minimal pain. The entire treatment would happen today, that's if you're comfortable with it.
Eric: What happens? What's involved?
Dr. Lewis: It's a frame-like device attached to your head. It's used to focus high-powered radiation directly onto the tumors with no damage to healthy tissue.
Eric: What's the success rate?
Dr. Lewis: We've had good results with it, Eric. Since her brain tumors are small, Stephanie is an excellent candidate for the procedure.
Dayzee: When will we know if it worked?
Dr. Lewis: Not for a little while, but you'll be able to resume your normal activities tomorrow. We had a cancellation this morning. That's the only way I could fit you in. They're ready to prep you now, that is, if you want this.
Stephanie: Let's do it.
Dr. Lewis: I'll make the arrangements.
Eric: (Chuckles) Good. I'll call Ridge. I'll have everybody come in.
Stephanie: No, no, Honey. Don't--let's not do that. We've got plenty of time to talk to the kids after the procedure. (Chuckles) Dr. Lewis, I do have another question. If this doesn't work...
Dr. Lewis: There are other options.
Stephanie: I'm gonna believe this is gonna work.
Dayzee: (Chuckles) It will. And you'll be back up to helping people all over again, Stephanie.
Stephanie: We've got a lot to do.
Dayzee: You know what Mother Teresa said.
Stephanie: "If you can't feed a hundred people, feed one"?
Dayzee: You remembered.
Stephanie: (Laughs) I haven't lost my memory yet.
Dayzee: Got it. (Laughs)
Stephanie: Thanks for everything you've brought into my life.
Dr. Lewis: Well...
Eric: Here we go.
Dr. Lewis: We're ready?
Stephanie: I guess we're ready.
Stephanie: Let me get my slippers on.
Eric: Feet. (Sighs)
Stephanie: I fell in love with you the first time I laid eyes on you.
Eric: I love you, too. We're in this together, you know, you and me. This is our miracle.
Stephanie: Let's go.
Thomas: Dad, you might want to have a little talk with my mom. She's a little out of control here.
Taylor: No, no, no, no. I am the only one in control here right now. I just can't believe that you two want to ignore all of this insanity.
Brooke: This is business, Taylor-- nothing more, nothing less. And quite frankly, I'm very insulted by your insinuations, both to me, to Thomas, and to Ridge.
Taylor: Thomas, you are a very talented young man, and you have your whole future ahead of you. But you haven't had a lot of experience with women, and I promise you, you definitely have not had to deal with a woman like that.
Thomas: Mom, would it help if I told you I had a date tonight?
Taylor: With whom?
Thomas: Madison. Look, I know I don't have the experience my dad had at my age, but I'm a chip off the old block, right, Pops?
Ridge: (Laughs) I'm afraid you're on your own with that one, Son. (Chuckles)
Taylor: Okay, look, you two can joke about this all you want. But I'm just telling you right now, I am not going to tolerate or have any part of this ridiculous campaign of my son kissing your wife.
(Cell phone rings)
Ridge: Hey, Dad. How was Mother's appointment?
Eric: That went well, actually, but something unexpected came up. She's having a procedure today to treat her brain tumors. She's getting prepped right now.
Ridge: Wait, she's having brain surgery right now?
Eric: No, it's not surgery at all. It's a very sophisticated laser procedure.
Ridge: Look, I'm here with Brooke, Thomas, and Taylor. We'll be right there.
Eric: No, Ridge, I think your mother would prefer if we don't gang up on her right now, all right?
Ridge: Just promise me you'll call me as soon as you know something, okay?
Eric: I will. I'll talk to you later. (Sighs)
Stephanie: Technology is just so amazing, isn't it? Imagine, this machine is capable-- oh, hi, Honey.
Eric: Hi. Hi.
Stephanie: I was just saying, it's--technology's so extraordinary. This--this machine, I mean, if it can actually kill the tumors in my brain, I won't have to live with that hanging over my head. We can get so much accomplished.
Dayzee: Stephanie, it seems like you've accomplished quite a bit already.
Stephanie: No, there's a lot to do. You know that. We've gotta try and help those people down on skid row.
Stephanie: And I just have to be strong enough to do it.
Doctor: All right. (Sighs) Let's get started.
Woman: You'll-- you'll have to step outside during the procedure.
Eric: Of course. Um, I'll be-- I'll be right outside. Concentrate on that. Concentrate on us.
Brooke: I think we'd better table this discussion for another time.
Taylor: No, I don't think Stephanie would like that. We all know where she would stand on this issue.
Ridge: It's risky, and it has to be handled in a very professional manner.
Thomas: Yes, and you know we will.
Taylor: No, I know you will, Thomas, but I don't trust her.
Ridge: Taylor, we have a very unique opportunity here. This whole thing was not set in motion by Brooke. It's our son that did that. I'm not thrilled about it either, but the impact is undeniable, and I'm not gonna turn my back on it.
Taylor: Ridge, just the name Taboo-- what it implies-- a-a-and promoting your son with your--your wife-- it--that is exploitation. That's exactly what it is.
Ridge: Taylor. Taylor, I'm not gonna argue with you anymore about this. I just don't want you to involve our mother here because she has other things she has to deal with.
Taylor: Do you think I don't know that?
Ridge: Okay, then you will not involve her, right? Thank you. Come on. We gotta get to the hospital.
Taylor: Wait, just for the record, I have to say one thing. I am against this. I am going to fight it. I do not trust your wife with my son, all right? He might get notoriety, but I'm telling you Ridge, he will lose so much more.
Ridge: Okay, duly noted. Unlike you, I trust my wife implicitly.
Ridge: I think she and Thomas will make a great team. Come on. .
Dayzee: She's a remarkable woman, Eric-- the quality of a woman I've never met before.
Eric: Yeah, she, uh, she's a real inspiration to us all, and to me in particular lately. I'm gonna do more, Dayzee. I never gave it much thought before. I just, uh, signed the checks and made the contributions. It wasn't until she lit a fire under me that I realized how much had to really be done, that we all have to do our part. Well, I'm gonna do mine. I just need to get her better. She's a woman of quality. She's the best thing about my life. Don't want to live without her. . .
