Stephanie: Lots of wonderful memories in this house. Can I get you something, Honey? You want some coffee?
Ridge: What the hell am I gonna do, Mother? My wife and my son-- how the hell am I gonna get past this one?
Stephanie: You will. It doesn't seem possible right now, but you will.
Stephanie: It's gonna take a long time. You can come back here with us, if you want. This is your home.
Jackie: (Sighs) Oh. Oh.
Jackie: Oh, just a few more minutes. Just heel, heel, heel, heel.
Owen: Mm, but minutes can seem like hours.
Jackie: I still have to work, Baby.
Owen: Mm. And I need my wife.
Jackie: Oh, you always make the choice so simple.
Nick: Hey, Mother, I--
Owen: Oh, wait.
Nick: My God. D-don't you two ever stop?
Jackie: (Clears throat)
Owen: Is there, uh, something we can do for you?
Nick: Yeah, how about starting with a cold shower?
Owen: Oh, yeah.
Nick: Mother... (Clears throat)
Nick: Have you finished that report I asked you to get done?
Jackie: Ooh, getting there, Sweetie. Getting there.
Nick: You said that a couple hours ago.
Jackie: All right. Working, working, working. No more distractions.
Nick: Mm-hmm. Famous last words.
Jackie: Until later.
Nick: Owen... how about you head out with me?
Owen: Yeah. Where?
Nick: How about anywhere but here?
Nick: And where have you been all day?
Whip: Since you asked, breaking up with my wife
Jackie: No, Whip, you didn't.
Whip: It's over, Jackie.
Nick: It's not over. I mean, you just had a fight or something.
Whip: I wish.
Owen: What happened?
Whip: Well, guess you could say Ridge Forrester happened.
Stephanie: Honey, would you get me a glass of water? I-I just realized I forgot to take my medication. Please?
Stephanie: What are you doing here?
Thomas: Grandma, I hate myself for what I'm doing right now.
Stephanie: Well, get over it. You're gonna feel a lot better when you get 25% of the company.
Thomas: No, I'm not gonna feel better after I get 25% of the company. I don't get it till you die.
Stephanie: Well, you can't change your mind now.
Thomas: What, you think the damage has been done?
Stephanie: (Scoffs) Well, you call it damage I call it redemption for everyone.
Thomas: We lied, Grandma. I didn't have sex with Brooke on that island.
Stephanie: You don't know that for sure.
Thomas: Grandma, look, I'm really struggling with this right now.
Stephanie: Thanks, Honey. Tom, um, you know, we can visit later.
Ridge: Not so fast. We have things to discuss.
Stephanie: Oh, Sweetheart, there's plenty of time for that.
Thomas: No, its okay, Grandma. Fine, Dad.
(Knock on door)
Stephanie: I'll get that. Oh.
Taylor: Stephanie. (Sniffles) (Sighs) My son.
Taylor: Thomas, I'm just sick about this.
Thomas: Mom, what's wrong?
Taylor: I know about Brooke and what she did to you. (Sniffles) I know all of it, Ridge. (Sniffles)
Nick: You sure about this?
Whip: Look, I can't go on this way, Nick. Thank you.
Jackie: Well, something specific must have happened, I mean--
Whip: Well, you know that Taylor was in the hospital, right?
Nick: Yeah. What's the story with the berries or something?
Whip: Well, yeah, there was something that--that Thomas brought back from the island. I-don't know why. Anyway, they, uh-- she accidently ate some of them, and, well, they were hallucinogenic. And she started tripping out.
Jackie: Oh, that must have been horrible.
Whip: Well, actually, at first, it was just strange. I mean, I-I didn't know what was gong on. She... started to... get, well, um... amorous. I mean, I-I thought she just missed me after being away for so--awhile. We hadn't been together. And then, uh... things started changing, and as we got into it, it was a little bit different. She was looking at me, but she was seeing Ridge. She thought that she was back on the island--St. Thomas-- with him.
Jackie: The island where he proposed to her all those years ago?
Whip: Yeah. She thought that she was making love with somebody, and it wasn't me that was very clear.
Jackie: (Sighs) I'm so sorry, Whip.
Owen: What is it we can do?
Owen: I mean, anything, name it.
Nick: I mean, I've had a reason to punch Forrester in the mouth for a few years.
Jackie: Please, Nicky.
Jackie: It's not an appropriate time to be joking.
Whip: Yeah, well... I think it's a joke for me to think that I ever had a chance to be first in Taylor's eyes.
Jackie: But of course you had a chance. I mean, my God, you proposed to her, and she accepted. No, she hasn't gotten over Ridge, but she's gonna have to, Whip, sooner or later, because I cannot fathom that he is ever going to leave Brooke.
Ridge: How did you find out?
Taylor: It doesn't mater how I know. I just know what she's done. And now you're having memories about it?
Thomas: Mom, I--
Stephanie: Tom, look, I know you have feelings for Brooke. I know you care for her. But there's so much more at stake here, isn't there?
Taylor: Absolutely there is. Your mental health for one thing. What she did was sick. I want to have her put away for this.
Thomas: Mom, just hold on a minute, please.
Stephanie: Oh, my God. Now stop it. We're not gonna make a public spectacle of this.
Ridge: There aren't gonna be any lawsuits. I sure as hell don't want this getting out.
Taylor: What are you talking about? He was drugged and then taken advantage of by somebody that he trusted.
Ridge: We're not so sure of that, Taylor.
Taylor: Please tell me that you're not blaming Thomas for any of this.
Ridge: No one's blaming anyone.
Taylor: No, I blame Brooke, because she knew exactly what she was doing.
Ridge: I don't want to believe that. Son, are you sure... are you absolutely positive you remember what happened?
Stephanie: Ridge, don't do this, okay? He's had enough. Don't--don't be grilling him this way. It wasn't his fault. Brooke gave him the berries in the first place.
Taylor: Oh, there's a lot of things she shouldn't have done over years, and even when she's been caught, that hasn't stopped her, because she hasn't been held accountable, and now look what she's done to our son. Ridge, I told you that I had a bad feeling about them going to Australia. I told you I didn't want them to go because I thought something bad would happen. I told you it would. (Sighs)
Ridge: Everything you warned me about. You were right, Doc. How could someone that I trusted so deeply do something like this to me? How?
Whip: No. No, I don't think that Ridge will ever leave Brooke, not that it really even matters.
Jackie: Because Taylor won't put him out of her mind.
Whip: No, you know what? I think... I think she tried, Jackie. She really did try. She... (Sighs) She wanted to love me, but she just couldn't quite do it.
Nick: Whip, don't beat yourself up. You've been a great husband. If it doesn't work out, we're all sorry.
Whip: Hey, look, look, I don't--I don't blame Taylor. You know, she gave it her all. I-I mean, she's just... she's special.
Owen: You fell hard. I know the feeling.
Whip: I bet you do. You know, I wish Taylor and I had the relationship that you guys have.
Owen: Oh, we have had our challenges, believe me. Every single marriage has its challenges, Whip.
Jackie: Yes, but whatever obstacles we face, we love each other.
Jackie: It always comes to that.
Whip: See? That's the difference, though, you know? I love Taylor beyond words, but she couldn't reciprocate. And she lives with that thought in her head every single day. She tortures herself with. I mean, she is an intelligent gorgeous woman stuck on a man that she will never have.
Taylor: I want to get Thomas in therapy. We need to help him, and we need to heal as a family.
Stephanie: You're right, Taylor. He needs the both of you.
Taylor: When something like this happens to someone, when they're victimized like this, Ridge, you have no idea what it can do to them, especially a young man. And I know you're in pain. I know you're in pain yourself, but if you can focus on helping him, helping him to get better, it'll help you feel better, too.
Ridge: Decency... that's what you always stood for, everything good, fair, honest. I don't think I gave those qualities enough respect, and obviously neither did my wife. Can I have a minute alone with Thomas?
Taylor: Sure. Stephanie, come on.
Ridge: You look guilt-ridden.
Thomas: I am.
Ridge: I can't help you with that, but what I can tell you is that, in time, I will likely forgive you. But in the meantime, you need to focus on forgiving yourself.
Stephanie: They shouldn't be alone.
Taylor: Stephanie, that is the only way they're going to begin to heal. They need to be alone.
Stephanie: The way that boy is going to be healed is when you and his father are together, and I'm not gonna go to my grave until I know that you and Ridge are together. I think he's starting to realize what he's been missing. You've gotta be there for him.
Taylor: I will be, if that's what he wants.
Stephanie: You may not have an opportunity like this again. You've got to grab it. Brooke is gone, and you've got to get him out of that house. You tell him how you feel. Tell him that you love him. You've got to do that. Let's go back in. Tom, may I speak to you alone for a moment? We'll go upstairs. Come on.
Ridge: I'm sorry about you and Whip.
Taylor: Oh. Well, just be sorry for Whip. He deserved much better.
Ridge: He had the best.
Taylor: No, I don't think... you call being the best... a woman who's in love with another man.
Nick: Hey. I'm sorry for what you're going through.
Nick: I understand. Unfortunately, I've-- I've been through it more times than I care to admit.
Whip: How do you get over it?
Jackie: Spend your free time with us. Throw yourself into work.
Nick: Or... you could join me on my boat, dink a lot, and just get sick.
Jackie: Oh, my.
Owen: (Inhales sharply)
Jackie: That sounds so mature.
Nick: Mother, we're looking to escape heartbreak painlessly.
Nick: Not maturity.
Whip: Yes, thank you. No, actually, it's Taylor that I'm worried about.
Owen: Taylor's made her own bed, Whip.
Whip: No, I understand that, Owen... you know, Taylor may not love me, but I-I'm never gonna stop loving her, and it just kills me to think that she's sitting alone there, biding her time, waiting for a man that's just not gonna love her back. I mean, we all know he's not gonna leave Brooke.
Jackie: Well, there's nothing that you can do. I mean, Ridge has just rescued his wife. He and Brooke are probably closer than they have ever been.
Ridge: Doc, how can I leave R.J. this way?
Taylor: You don't have to leave him, Ridge. You'll always be there for him.
Ridge: If only Brooke had used a little more self-control.
Taylor: Ridge, what she did... it was unimaginable... unforgiveable.
Thomas: I can't do this anymore, Grandma. Look, my dad's suffering, and I can stop this by telling him the truth, okay? There's no guarantee that my mom and dad will get back together.
Stephanie: Tom, I think that your father is going to do what's best for him and his family. You and Steffy are gonna-- eventually gonna have the company, and the rest of us are going to be able to hold our heads up high once again.
Thomas: It's based on a lie.
Stephanie: The liar here is Brooke lying about the fact that she would always be faithful and honest and truthful with your father.
Thomas: She was truthful. I'm the one who decide to lie to everyone.
Stephanie: Stop. Enough of this. Enough. (Sighs)
Thomas: You really think they're gonna get back together?
Stephanie: Well... (Laughs) I don't know. Let's go look.
Taylor: Ridge, there's just no denying what Brooke has done to Thomas. I-I don't want you to hate her, but you can't go back to her. She'll only cause more pain. She always does, Ridge. Look at how destructive this is to Thomas. Please don't invalidate him by condoning what she's done to him. Thomas has to be protected from Brooke professionally and personally, and the two of us have to help him heal away from Brooke. The two of us can do that together.
Ridge: I just feel so staggered by this. I-I can't believe that she would do something like this to me.
Taylor: Ridge... (Sighs) She... doesn't even know she's doing it. She can't help herself. She sees every man through a sexual lens. I'm sure she would like to change. She probably wishes she could change, but she can't. She's hardwired. Ridge, you have tried. And now, please, we have to move on and help our family heal. Please let me... let me be there for you. I'm here for you.
Stephanie: Do you want to have control of this company someday?
Thomas: Are you serious about that?
Stephanie: Absolutely. All you have to do... is tell what happened on the island.
Thomas: You're asking me to lie.
Stephanie: I'm asking you to correct a mistake that was made regarding your family.
Thomas: Oh, come on. I'm over that.
Stephanie: Well, your mother isn't. She's more in love with your father than--than ever before. You have the chance to put your family back together again and have the controlling interest in this company. That's not a bad deal.
