Katie: Hey, there you are.
Brooke: Katie, hi.
Katie: So... spill it.
Brooke: (Laughs) Spill what?
Katie: Did you talk to Thomas last night?
Brooke: Oh, Boy. You'll never believe what happened.
Katie: Uh, is this his office now?
Brooke: Yes, but he's in a big meeting with Ridge, so don't worry. He won't be coming in here.
Katie: So did you talk to him? Does he have feelings for you?
Brooke: (Sighs) Get this-- after I left you, I came straight here to talk to him, but he wasn't here. Instead, I found a note.
Katie: What did it say?
Brooke: "Meet me in the steam room."
Nick: So the oncologist agreed--no treatment right now?
Dr. Lewis: Yes, but I'm glad to have a second opinion.
Nick: Well, so am I. Thank you very much for that.
Dr. Lewis: He also agreed that we need to keep an eye on it.
Nick: Right. Well, I will keep coming to my appointments. I don't know what else I can do.
Dr. Lewis: Except quit smoking.
Nick: Right. Well, I'm on that.
Dr. Lewis: Good, because this spot may not be anything serious right now-- it's just a wake-up call. Don't pretend it's not.
Jackie: Thank you so much for coming by.
Stephanie: Well, of course. You sounded so concerned on the phone. Thanks. Is it about Nick?
Jackie: Oh, I'm so worried.
Stephanie: What--what--what-- what do you mean, worried? Did they find something? Is there another spot?
Jackie: Oh, no. No, no. Not--nothing like that... (Laughs nervously) Not yet.
Stephanie: Jackie, come on. It's difficult to-- not to worry, but the doctors are keeping an eye on it.
Jackie: Yes, but who is keeping an eye on him? Who is making sure that he doesn't smoke any more of those awful cigars?
Katie: (Sighs) The steam room? Please tell me you didn't go down there. I mean, what did you do?
Brooke: I marched right down there...
Brooke: To tell him it couldn't happen and to never suggest something like that again.
Katie: Well, did he listen?
Brooke: It turns out the note wasn't for me. He was in the steam room with Summer.
Katie: Did you walk in on anything?
Brooke: Oh, no. No. It was all perfectly innocent. But I was just so embarrassed. I mean, there I was-- I was storming in there thinking that he wanted to mess around with me in the steam room-- me, his stepmom.
Brooke: (Sighs) It was so foolish. Oh.
Katie: Well, you must be somewhat relieved.
Brooke: Oh, yes. Yeah, sure.
Ridge: Relieved, huh?
Brooke: (Sighs) Oh, Ridge. I--you're done with your meeting so soon?
Ridge: Well, I'm gonna let Thomas and Dad finish up the conference call. So what were you two so relieved about?
Katie: That Donna's wedding went so smoothly. It was beautiful.
Ridge: Yeah, nice ceremony.
Katie: Mm-hmm. Okay, well, I'm--I'm gonna hit the road. Have a great day. Bye.
Ridge: I will.
Brooke: Mm. (Sighs)
Ridge: With this woman by my side, how could I not?
Nick: Well, I'm one step ahead of you, Doc. I started the gum already. I've got the patch going. I'm not sticking my head in the sand.
Dr. Lewis: Going through any withdrawals?
Nick: Maybe a little.
Dr. Lewis: Stay at it. You'll be glad you did.
Nick: I'm giving quitting a shot. I-I know it's the right thing to do.
Dr. Lewis: Yes, it is.
Nick: But come on, Doc, really, is occasionally smoking really gonna kill me? Now my mind tells me driving on the freeway over here today-- now that could have killed me, but, you know, an occasional cigar now and then, I mean, I just don't think so. It just feels like this whole cold turkey thing just isn't worth it.
Dr. Lewis: (Sighs)
Stephanie: To quit smoking-- it's so hard. (Sighs) It's not gonna be easy for him, I know that.
Jackie: I know it, too. And I'm trying not to be a nag about it, but, Stephanie, this is so scary. What is that spot is a precursor to something more serious? He has to understand what could happen.
Stephanie: Well, I believe he's trying.
Jackie: He just says things, that's all, things-- stupid things like he doesn't know if he can make it or... (Scoffs) "So what if I have a cigar or two? It doesn't make me addicted."
Stephanie: He is.
Jackie: Well, of course he's addicted. Do you remember that, um, P.S.A. that Yul Brynner did before he died?
Stephanie: I think so.
Jackie: Well, I showed it to Nicky. He always just loved his movies, and I thought he might get through to him.
Stephanie: Did it?
Jackie: He--he was affected, but no, I don't think it was enough. You know, he's just not committed. You can--you can see it in eyes. You can hear it in what he says, how he doubts himself. (Sighs) It's just so obvious. He's not ready to quit smoking. Don't forget Mrs. Collier.
Stephanie: I'm sorry, Jackie. I... (Sighs) I wish there was some way I could convince him.
Jackie: Well, maybe there is. He's always admired you so much, Stephanie.
Stephanie: Well, look, I have talked to him. You know that. I've even yelled at him.
Jackie: Could you talk to him again, please? I mean, he does admire you. Really, he does, especially after everything you've had to deal with, and you've literally transformed your life. Please would you reach out to him one more time?
Stephanie: Of course I will! Of course I will. I've kind of been thinking about something, you know, actually. Um...
Jackie: Oh? What?
Stephanie: Well... maybe if he saw and heard people who had, you know, been ill, and what they'd gone through-- where is he now?
Jackie: He's at the hospital.
Jackie: He's getting a checkup. What--what--what's your idea?
Stephanie: Well, there's no support groups in Beverly Hills for people with lung cancer, and I've talked to Dr. Lewis about it. Uh, and she's encouraged me, you know, perhaps maybe I should start one.
Jackie: Really? I-I--that's a wonderful idea. So, um... you're gonna ask Nick to sit in?
Stephanie: Don't you think that'd be a good idea? I-I-I mean, I don't--uh, it's not a formal thing yet, and I'm just talking with people and meeting them for the first time. Some people, uh, that I've spoken to have, uh, survived for a number of years. Some people have just been diagnosed recently. But I think--and I don't know how many people were smokers, and--but I would think maybe at least one person might have smoked a cigar.
Jackie: No, no, no. No, no, no. This is--this is a-a marvelous, wonderful, marvelous idea. You'd really ask him?
Stephanie: Well, of course I would, Jackie. He's such an ornery son of a gun, I don't know if he'll show up, though.
Jackie: Oh, yes, he will. Yes, he will. He's gonna do it. Stephanie, thank you. You are such a great, great friend.
Stephanie: Oh, Jackie.
Brooke: So you really mean it about Justin and Donna's wedding?
Ridge: I had a good time.
Brooke: (Laughs) I wasn't so sure. It wasn't exactly your crowd.
Ridge: Logan, you were there. That's all that matters.
Ridge: I'm not that bugged by Bill these days. Did I tell you he tried to give me a compliment?
Ridge: Yeah, he congratulated me on the success of the Taboo line. He said it was a very gutsy move, something he might have even done himself. I'm not sure if I'm really flattered by that or mortified.
Brooke: (Giggles) Well, you gotta give it to the guy. He does own 12.5%, and he hasn't really been in our faces telling us how to run the company.
Ridge: True, not that he would complain about Taboo anyway. That line's making us all rich. You and Thomas seem to be all the rage. Seems like everybody in the world wants to see the two of you together.
Summer: Thomas? Oh, excuse me.
Ridge: Summer, everything okay?
Summer: Yeah, I was just-- is Thomas...
Ridge: He's in a meeting. He shouldn't be much longer.
Summer: Okay. Um, I'll just text him. Look, Mrs. Forrester, about the other night, I apologize. I'm really sorry.
Ridge: The other night? What's she talking about?
Brooke: Oh. Nothing.
Ridge: So what was Summer apologizing for? It didn't sound like nothing. She seemed kind of rattled.
Brooke: It... (Sighs) Just didn't seem like anything worth mentioning.
Ridge: Come on, Logan. What's going on? Did she do something wrong?
Brooke: No. No, she didn't. I just--there's something that I was thinking. (Sighs) Actually, I... (Sighs) I was in the gym yesterday, and I opened up the steam room door, and... long story short, Thomas was in there with Summer.
Ridge: Oh. Okay. Maybe that's what he meant.
Ridge: Oh, last night he was talking about following in my footsteps. I guess he was talking about meeting some girl in the steam room.
Brooke: (Sighs) Classic Ridge. Thomas has learned from the best.
Ridge: Well, it was a pretty good move, wasn't it? Next, I'll have to have him learn, uh, Forrester jet seduction. He does seem to be enjoying himself, though. I'm glad to see he's getting out and seeing different girls.
Brooke: Well, he... (Sighs) Certainly doesn't seem to be tying himself down.
Ridge: No, but it seems kind of strange, because he said there was someone special in his life... but maybe that's Summer.
Brooke: Or maybe that's Madison. He's been seeing a lot of her.
Ridge: Or... maybe this someone special is, uh, someone else entirely. I wonder.
Nick: Well, if that's all, I will--I'll see you next time.
Dr. Lewis: Nick, you have options. If you're having trouble quitting, make an appointment with me. We can talk about prescriptions that are available to you--
Nick: Doc, listen, I'm gonna--I'm gonna do this my way for right now, so if I quit smoking, great. If not, it--well, just whatever's meant to be is meant to be, okay?
Stephanie: That's a hell of an attitude.
Nick: Well, Stephanie, lovely to see you at my doctor's appointment. Why am I not surprised?
Stephanie: I wanted to talk to you, and a little tiny bird just happened to tell me where you were.
Nick: Little bird, huh? English accent, boy toy husband?
Stephanie: Mm-hmm. How did you know? I also wanted to see you. That support group that we talked about, I'm going to try and put it together.
Dr. Lewis: Oh, that's wonderful.
Nick: That sounds like a great idea, Stephanie.
Stephanie: Good, because I'm gonna ask you to come.
Nick: Me? Why? Because of my cigars?
Dr. Lewis: Nick seems to feel a cigar now and then isn't so bad. I wonder what the people in this support group would say about that.
Stephanie: I'm sure that they would be, uh, very interested. (Chuckles) I want you to come. Look, it--I don't know them yet. We're just going to get to know one another. They'll share their stories with me, and maybe, if you would listen, you'd learn something.
Nick: Well, I don't know why they'd want me there.
Stephanie: Why wouldn't they want you there? The whole idea of a support group is to support.
Nick: I know.
Stephanie: Nick, I-I haven't met them yet. We'll talk. We'll exchange stories. One of them is-- is six years free of cancer, and the other was just recently diagnosed. This is important for you, Nick. You gave me your word that you would stop smoking. You stood on that boat, and you said you'd quit.
Stephanie: Now maybe if you were to meet these people and listen to what they've been through, maybe it would help you. And you've got to think about that little boy.
Brooke: I don't think Thomas is seeing any one girl in particular right now.
Ridge: Well, that's as it should be. I just hope that once he decides to settle down, it'll be with the right woman... someone like you.
Ridge: Last night, I told Thomas how much you mean to me, what you bring to my life all the time. I hope someday he finds a Logan of his own.
Brooke: Now what got you talking to him about all that?
Ridge: Oh, I don't know. Maybe it was being at... Donna and Justin's wedding. You know I'm a sentimental kind of guy.
Brooke: Oh, please.
Ridge: Well, I can be.
Ridge: I think it was watching the two of them standing up there, committing the rest of their lives to each other and seeing you there standing there as beautiful as ever. It made me realize just how thankful I am to have you in my life, how lucky I am. So I guess I felt motivated to... impart that wisdom to my son. (Sighs)
Ridge: I hope that someday he gets the same.
Brooke: Well, I feel the same way about you. There's not a day that doesn't go by that I thank God for you and everything that we have together-- our marriage, our children, our family. I love you so much. I don't know what I would do without you.
Nick: I can't believe you talked me into this. I really can't.
Stephanie: Well, you don't have to say anything if you don't want to.
Nick: Well, if they don't want me to be here, if they're uncomfortable...
Stephanie: Well, then you can just leave quietly. Listen, this isn't about you, you know? It's about me, although it's nice to have a friend by my side.
Nick: I don't want you think I'm not trying to quit, 'cause I am.
Stephanie: I know.
Nick: I just seem to go back and forth with this. Sometimes I think one puff of a cigar, and I'm gonna die from it, and then I think, well, I could have died on the freeway over here. And then I think, well, you know, it's been a tough day. Don't I deserve a cigar at the end of the day?
Stephanie: Well, the pros don't outweigh the cons on that one. And what about your boy?
Nick: Well, I've thought about that. I think I've come up with a few ground rules for myself. Once Jack goes to bed, he's asleep, I can go outside and have a cigar in the evening if I want.
Nick: There's nothing wrong with that.
(Knock on door)
Stephanie: Saved for the next round. I hope that's our first guest. Hi.
Woman: Hello. I'm Rosalie Gray.
Stephanie: Hi, I'm Stephanie Forrester. This is my friend Nick Marone.
Rosalie: Well, how do you do?
Nick: Hi. Pleasure to meet you, too.
Stephanie: Thank you so much for coming over and--and visiting today.
Rosalie: My pleasure.
Stephanie: Well, how about we sit down? We have some tea. Uh, we spoke earlier on the phone, and, uh, I hope you don't mind Nick being here. Nick is not a cancer survivor.
Stephanie: He--they discovered a spot on his lung, and it was a scar tissue. Uh, I'm doing all the talking for him, 'cause he's nervous. (Chuckles)
Nick: (Scoffs) Thank you.
Stephanie: And they're going to monitor it, but, uh, he's having a hard time quitting cigars.
Rosalie: Oh, bad boy.
Stephanie: Yeah. And you--you told me you--you'd been a smoker.
Rosalie: Well, that's true. I quit smoking 29 years ago.
Stephanie: Oh, wow.
Rosalie: And I have no smoker cough. I had no symptoms. I exercised and ate fine for 29 years. And I went to the doctor because I was having, I thought, a pulled muscle on the upper left, uh, shoulder.
Rosalie: He said, "Well, you have no symptoms to have the chest x-ray," but, uh, he did do one and saw that there was something that looks like it might be an ex-smoker's lung, so he suggested to have a, uh, scan. I went to a thoracic physician, and he did do the PET scan, and I got a call from the physician saying, "Well, you have six months." I said, "Six months for what?" And he said, "Well, if you do aggressive chemotherapy, perhaps a year."
Stephanie: I was in complete denial.
Stephanie: Yeah. And, uh, I was told that I was going to die, so I thought, well, the best thing is just to accept that and kind of have a last hurrah. (Chuckles) You know? Um, it was only because of a close friend...
Stephanie: Or someone I didn't realize was actually a friend...
Stephanie: Who became very pivotal and important for me...?
Stephanie: Uh, to... (Sighs) Face, uh, the fact that I-I had a lot to live for. And, um, I'm always grateful for that. Friends are really so important. I admire your strength and perseverance.
