Nick: Oh, thank you. Stephanie, over here. Hi. Hi.

Stephanie: Hi.

Nick: (Chuckles) Sit down.

Stephanie: Of course.

Nick: Thanks for coming.

Stephanie: Of course, honey. I got your message. What's up?

Nick: Um... um, notice anything different about me?

Stephanie: Um... new suit?

Nick: No. I'm not smokin' a cigar. I'm chewing.

Stephanie: I see.

Nick: I'm chewing the gum.

Stephanie: And obviously enjoying it.

Nick: I don't think you're gettin' it, Stephanie. It's not just any gum. It's the gum.

Stephanie: Oh, nicotine.

Nick: No more cigars. Finito. The Marone humidor is officially closed.

(Knock on door)

Bill: (Mutters)

Justin: Hey, man, are you busy?

Bill: Hey. No, come on in.

Justin: I just wanted to thank you again for the birthday party last night.

Bill: Ahh, yeah, well... a lot more tame than celebrations of the past, but we are dads now, right? Gotta play the part.

Justin: Still, it was a great night. And it got even better.

Bill: Oh, yeah? All right, give it up. Let's hear it.

Justin: Donna gave me the most unbelievable present.

Bill: I'll bet she did.

Justin: She proposed.

Bill: What?

Brooke: Did Donna tell you why she wanted to meet here?

Katie: No, she just said that it was important and I was not allowed to go anywhere until she got here.

Brooke: Mm. I hope everything's okay. I haven't been able to speak to her since I got back from Paris.

Katie: I don't know.

Brooke: Hey.

Donna: Hi, girls.

Brooke: There you are.

Katie: There you are.

Donna: Hey. (Chuckles)

Brooke: We've been waiting, wanting to know what's going on.

Donna: Yeah, well, I have news--big, big news. Huge. You're-- you're not gonna believe it when I tell you.

Katie: Well, I can tell by the look on your face that it must be good.

Donna: It's amazing. (Sighs)

Brooke: Okay, what is it?

Donna: Okay, brace yourself. Justin and I are engaged.

Brooke: What?

Donna: (Laughs) Uh-huh.

Katie: Are you serious?

Donna: I'm--I'm engaged. I'm engaged! I can't believe it.

Katie: Oh, my gosh.

Brooke: Donna.

Katie: Oh, my gosh, congratulations, sweetheart.

Donna: Oh, I know.

Katie: (Laughs) Oh, my God.

Donna: Thank you. (Sighs) (Stammers)

Katie: It's amazing. (Laughs)

Donna: (Sighs)

Bill: (Laughs) All right, wait a minute now. Donna proposed to you?

Justin: After the party last night.

Bill: Yeah, isn't this supposed to work the other way around?

Justin: Hey, what can I say? She beat me to the punch.

Bill: She just couldn't help herself, could she?

Justin: I guess not. (Laughs)

Bill: I assume you said yes.

Justin: Oh, of course. How could I not? I've only been in love with her for 20 years.

Bill: Yes, you have.

Justin: Ahh, man.

Bill: Well, it's about time you two got together. You share a son, so it makes sense.

Justin: (Chuckles)

Bill: Congratulations.

Justin: Oh, wow. Thanks, man.

Bill: You're marrying a Logan. I can tell you from experience, you're a lucky man.

Justin: (Chuckles)

Brooke: Donna, this is incredible.

Donna: Yeah. Yeah, I...

Katie: I just can't believe the two of you are getting married after all these years.

Donna: I know. I can't believe it's really actually happening.

Katie: (Laughs) Okay, okay, so we want details.

Donna: Okay, well, you know that we saw each other here last night at Justin's birthday.

Katie: Yes, and they could not keep their eyes off of each other.

Donna: Or our hands. (Laughs)

Katie: (Laughs)

Donna: And, uh, well, Marcus and I gave Justin, uh, an album. It had pictures of Marcus when he was growing up.

Brooke: Oh, that is so sweet.

Donna: Yeah, and, well, he got a little bit emotional. It reminded him of all the years that we missed out on each other and our son. But not anymore. (Laughs) I mean, Justin, Marcus, and I, we're--we're gonna be a family.

Brooke: (Sighs)

Katie: (Sighs)

Brooke: (Chuckles)

Donna: (Laughs)

Katie: (Laughs)

Nick: Excuse me. You know, I really think that this--this gum's gonna do the trick.

Stephanie: Mm, I can see you have a lot of faith in it.

Nick: I know that face. (Scoffs)

Stephanie: No, no, no, no. Nothing.

Nick: I know the face. Go ahead. Say it. Just say what's on your mind. Say it.

Stephanie: You're addicted to nicotine. You want to quit. I know you do, and I commend you for it, but I think it's going to take a little more than gum to get you through this.

Nick: You're kind of like "Debbie Downer" over here.

Stephanie: No, I'm just being realistic.

Nick: Well, I'll have you know, I haven't had a cigar in 12 hours and 47 minutes.

Stephanie: 12 hours and 47 minutes...

Nick: Mm-hmm.

Stephanie: And I bet you slept eight of them.

Nick: Six, but who's counting? And I normally have a puff with my morning coffee. But today...

Stephanie: You puffed on the gum.

Nick: Exactly.

Stephanie: And you've got it all figured out.

Nick: You don't think I can do this, do you?

Stephanie: No, no, no, no. I'm not saying that. I just don't think-- I don't think it's going to be as easy as you think it's going to be.

Nick: (Chuckles) Oh, ye of little faith. I'm Nick Marone. I make things happen. I put my mind to this, and now that I got the gum...

Stephanie: Okay.

Nick: But seriously, I asked you here today because I wanted you to see firsthand how seriously I was taking your advice, and I... I appreciate your concern for me.

Stephanie: I like you, too.

Nick: Well, it means a lot to me. And when I told you last night-- when I told you that I couldn't do this, I-I think I was being a bit of a baby. (Chuckles) Because I've just gotta put my mind to it. I just never tried hard enough.

Stephanie: But you're committed now.

Nick: Can't you tell? Look at me here chewin' away on this gum. My jaw's startin' to hurt. It's because of you, 'cause you straightened me out.

Justin: Most guys don't have a personal jeweler at their beck and call.

Bill: Well, most guys don't piss their wife off as often as I do. Are you kidding me? I got old Morty on standby 24/7 just in case.

Justin: Since Donna did the proposing, I didn't get a chance to get her an engagement ring.

(Intercom buzzes)

Bill: Yeah? Ahh, all right. Send him in.

(Door opens)

Mort: Mr. Spencer.

Bill: Mort, come on in. Meet Justin Barber, your next victim and the groom-to-be.

Justin: My pleasure.

Mort: Uh, exciting day for you, Mr. Barber.

Justin: Yes, it is.

Bill: All right, open it up. Show him what you got.  Better get that wallet out there, slick.

Mort: (Chuckles)

Justin: Yeah, you're right. You're right.

Mort: Okay.

Justin: Wow. All right, Dollar Bill. You gonna help me out with this, right?

Bill: No, this has to be your decision.

Justin: Oh, come on, dude. All right. All right. Uh... yeah.

Mort: That's one of our most flawless stones.

Justin: This is it. This is the one.

Bill: (Chuckles) Well, you made a good choice. We have the same taste-- beautiful and expensive.

Justin: That's why we're both with Logan women. I'll take it.

Mort: It's exquisite. Your bride will be very pleased.

Justin: She's definitely gonna be surprised. I can't wait to put it on her finger.

Katie: Okay, let's see the ring.

Donna: Oh.

Brooke: That's right. We haven't seen your engagement ring yet.

Katie: There's no ring.

Donna: Oh, uh, funny story about that.

Katie: Oh, don't tell me you rejected it.

Brooke: What? Was it too small? It wasn't big enough for you?

Katie: Poor Justin.

Donna: No. (Scoffs) Girls, stop. Really. Come on. I-I don't need a diamond to know that Justin loves me. And besides, he never really had a chance to give me one. See, last night, uh, we went out for a nightcap.

Brooke: Ooh.

Donna: Yeah.

Katie: (Chuckles)

Donna: We talked, and we reminisced, and, well, it brought up a lot of feelings. And you know the kind of slump I've been in since losing Eric. I have really needed to reevaluate my life, figure out what I want. So I went all Julia Roberts. I-I did a lot of eating. A lot of eating, a little bit of praying, and what I didn't have was love. I didn't think I ever would. And then suddenly, Justin walks back into my life, and I-I didn't want to lose him again. So I kind of... got caught up in the moment and... asked him to marry me.

Brooke: (Gasps) (laughs)

Katie: Oh, my God. (Laughs)

Donna: Yeah.

Bill: Donna's gonna salivate over that ring.

Justin: She is definitely gonna be surprised. She has no idea.

Bill: Well, get out of here. Go give it to her.

Justin: You know what? You're right. I'm gonna give her a call.

(Touch-tones beeping)

(Cell phone rings)

Brooke: (Sighs)

Donna: Oh. Hold on. It's Justin.

Katie: (Chuckles)

Donna: Is this my handsome fiancÚ? 

Justin: Yes, it's me.

Donna: Hi, honey.

Justin: So where are you?

Donna: I'm at Katie's, and Brooke's here, too.

Justin: Ahh, so did you tell 'em

Donna: Uh-huh. Yeah, they're very excited, and so am I.

Justin: (Chuckles) I am, too. Look, stay there. I am gonna come over.

Donna: Oh, okay. Great. I'll see you soon. I-I love you.

Justin: I love you, too. See you in a minute. All right. She is at your place with Katie and Brooke, so I'm gonna head over there.

Bill: Good.

Justin: (Chuckles)

Bill: Go make it official, Romeo. Hey, congratulations again. I'm happy for you.

Justin: Thank you.

Bill: Welcome to the family.

Justin: (Chuckles)

Nick: Thank you. You sure I can't get you something to eat?

Stephanie: No, no, coffee's fine. Thanks. Look, I'm glad I made some sort of an impact on you. You know, you get cancer, and, boy, it just gives you a real kick in the butt.

Nick: Stephanie, I have a spot on my lung. I don't have cancer.

Stephanie: You're very lucky. Now the doctors want to monitor you. You've got to promise me you'll do that, okay? This is no joke.

Nick: No, I-I know that. It scares the hell out of me that this could turn into cancer. I want to be there for Jack, and if I light up, what's that saying to him?

Stephanie: That you don't care enough not to expose him, place him at risk.

Nick: I love him. I love him more than anything. And I want to be there for him.

Stephanie: So make a change.

Nick: Well, I am. I'm--I'm--I'm chewing. I'm chewing the gum.

Stephanie: Chew, chew.

Nick: (Chuckles)

Stephanie: I know that it will help you with the cravings for the nicotine, but... (sighs) it's gonna take a lot more effort than that to overcome this addiction.

Nick: I-I know. But, well, so far, so good.

Stephanie: Yeah, but you're gonna have a lot of temptations, honey. Come on. You're going to want to smoke in the--in the car. You're going to get down to the boat, and you're gonna want to light up. You have to stay vigilant about this.

Nick: I realize that. I know, and I will.

Stephanie: Okay. Admitting that you have a problem-- that's the first step in any recovery. You can do this, Nick. I believe in you. I honestly do.

Nick: Thanks. Do you know you're a very good friend?

Stephanie: Yeah.

Nick: (Chuckles)

Stephanie: Well, I'd like to have you around for quite a while. And so would a lot of other people.

Nick: (Laughs) Well, that's the plan.

Stephanie: Thank you for my coffee. I've gotta go. Promise me you'll call me if you need me. Anything, anytime.

Nick: I will.

Stephanie: Okay, sweetheart.

Nick: Thanks, Stephanie.

Stephanie: All right.

Nick: (Sighs) Can I have the check please?

Katie: I love that you proposed. I think it's so romantic.

Donna: You don't think it's pathetic?

Katie: What?

Donna: Well, me asking Justin to marry him. I mean, isn't the guy supposed to ask the girl?

Katie: Oh, please. Who came up with that rule anyway?

Brooke: I proposed to Ridge once.

Donna: Uh, was that your third or fourth engagement?

Brooke: Oh, stop that.

Katie: The fifth time... I lost count.

Brooke: No, stop, both of you.

Katie: (Laughs) Have you told Marcus yet?

Donna: Not yet. We want to tell him together.

Brooke: He's gonna be thrilled.

Katie: Yeah.

Brooke: This is a big thing for him, too.

Donna: Yeah.

Katie: His parents getting married after all these years.

Donna: Marcus is gonna be over the moon. He really looks up to Justin.

(Knock on door)

Katie: Come on in.

Justin: Ladies.

Katie: Hey.

Brooke: Well, hello.

Donna: We were just talking about you.

Justin: Mm.

Brooke: Congratulations.

Katie: Congratulations.

Justin: Thank you. Thank you.

Brooke: We are so happy...

Justin: Me, too.

Brooke: To welcome you to the family.

Katie: Mwah. (Giggles)

Justin: I am really looking forward to being a part of the family. Thank you. Thank you.

Brooke: So, how long do we have to plan for this wedding?

Donna: Not--not long. Mnh-mnh.

Justin: We want to get married as soon as possible.

Donna: Yes, we do. Mm.

Justin: Yes. Mm.

Brooke: Uh, okay. Um, we're gonna go and leave you two alone.

Katie: We're gonna go for a walk on the beach, okay?

Justin: No, no, no, please. You're the most important people in Donna's life, and I have something that I want to do. I would like for you both to stay.

Brooke: (Chuckles) Okay.

Donna: Okay.

Woman: The salad was amazing.

Man: I-I thought so. I loved the, uh, hazelnuts and the goat cheese.

Woman: We should come here more often.

Man: Great. Next week.

Woman: You want to see a movie?

Man: Yes. Yes.

Woman: That would be great.

Man: It would be fun. Do you--you have a light?

Man: Yeah. Yeah, totally.

Woman: Thanks.

Woman: Look, there's the car.

Nick: Excuse me.

Man: Uh-huh?

Nick: You have a light?

Man: Yeah, I got one.

Nick: Thank you.

Man: Enjoy.

Nick: (Sighs)

Stephanie: (Clears throat)

Nick: I thought you left.

Stephanie: I thought you quit.

Brooke: Are you sure you want us to stick around?

Katie: (Chuckles)

Justin: Yes.

Donna: Yeah, they don't mind leaving, really. I-I want you all to myself.

Justin: Oh, sweetheart, you're gonna have me for the rest of your life. I'm not just marrying you, right? I'm marrying the whole family.

Katie: Well, he has a point. Maybe we should stay.

Donna: Okay, fine. Stay.

Justin: (Chuckles)

Katie: (Chuckles)

Brooke: (Laughs)

Donna: (Sighs)

Justin: (Sighs) (exhales) There was more that I wanted to say last night, and I didn't get a chance, so here it goes. From the first moment I laid eyes on you, we were kids in high school, and I saw this... this beautiful girl, and I remember telling myself, I said, "oh, man, I have got to have her." And I couldn't muster up the guts to ask you out. And then one day out of the blue, you asked me out.

Donna: Well, I-I knew I had to. You weren't going to.

Justin: And I'm so glad that you did, because from that very first date, you had me. I fell pretty deep.

Donna: I fell in love with you, too.

Justin: I knew that I was in deep trouble, Donna, because you were always something special, and I knew we had something special.

Donna: I know. We created Marcus.

Justin: Mm-hmm.

Donna: Although, I didn't tell you. I... I should have told you. (Stammers)

Justin: Donna, Donna, I'm--I'm okay with that.

Donna: (Sighs)

Justin: I am so okay with that. We found our way back to each other and our son.

Donna: I know.

Justin: That's all that matters right now. Oh, sweetheart, look, don't cry.

Donna: No, I'm--I'm happy. I'm... I'm happy. I'm so happy.

Justin: Donna, I didn't know how we were gonna get to this point, this moment right here and now, but I knew somehow, some way, someday, we were going to. And now that we have, we have our son, and we have a nice little family thing going.

Donna: (Laughs)

Justin: (Sighs) Donna Logan, you were the first one to ask me on a date. You asked me to marry you last night, and I said yes.

Donna: Yes.

Justin: (Sighs)

Donna: (Gasps)

Katie: (Sighs)

Justin: (Sighs)

Donna: (Laughs) (Sighs) (Chuckles)

Justin: Let's make it official. (Sighs)

Donna: (Sighs) (Giggles)

Brooke: (Sighs)

Justin: I love you, Donna.

Donna: (Sighs)

Donna: (Mouthing words)

Justin: (Mouthing words)

Donna: (Laughs)
