Katie: You have brought this man into our lives. You committed a crime for him. What happens when Deacon Sharpe wants to take us all down with him?
Bill: I would never let that happen.
Katie: How can you say that? You have handed him all the power. You have jeopardized everything we have. You have jeopardized our son's entire future. (Breathing heavily)
Bill: Katie, what is it? What is it? Is your heart?
Katie: No. It's the baby. It's--I-I think it's a contraction. I think I'm going into labor.
Bill: I can't believe it. Katie, Katie, you did it.
Bill: You did it. I'm so proud of you.
Bill: Katie? Katie?
(Flat line alarm sounds)
(Back to the present)
Katie: Hey. Um, we're over here.
Brooke: Oh. (Sighs) Hand that sweet little baby over right now.
Katie: I-I just--just got him to go to sleep. (Sighs)
Brooke: Okay, I'll hold him when he wakes up. Oh, he's so precious.
Katie: Welcome home.
Brooke: Aw. Congratulations, Honey. (Sighs) So... (Chuckles) This is what happened? You--I go away, you have your baby, and you move?
Katie: Yeah. Well, it wasn't exactly the way I planned it, Sis. Um, Will was ready, and Bill just... bought this place all on his own. (Chuckles)
Brooke: So that means Taylor's living at the beach house?
Katie: Yeah, I guess so. She--I-I guess she wanted a smaller place, now that her kids are out of the house.
Katie: Was Ridge upset?
Katie: Well, I know that you were gonna stay away longer. I mean, you didn't have to come back right away.
Brooke: Oh, no, no, no. I-I wanted to be here. I came as soon as I found out. I just--I wish I was here when it all happened. (Sighs) Maybe if I had been, things would have turned out a bit differently.
Caroline: So have you heard from Ridge lately?
Rick: Not yet. My dad's supposed to get an e-mail from him soon.
Caroline: Are you thinking it's pretty much just a done deal
Rick: Well, Ridge wants to take some time off, have an interim C.E.O. I'm the natural choice.
Caroline: Not Thorne?
Rick: Well, Thorne handles the distribution and transportation for company. That's his niche. He's comfortable there. And besides, how many years have I been running International? Thorne doesn't have that experience-- in fact, nobody here does. Even Ridge realizes that. I'm about to become C.E.O. of Forrester Creations. And I know just how I want to celebrate.
Caroline: I bet you do.
Donna: It's my turn to take notes, right?
Pam: Nope. It's mine. This is a very important meeting, Donna, and it's gotta be done just right. You--you can be in charge of drinks.
Donna: (Scoffs) All right.
Stephanie: I forgot to tell you--I'm so sorry-- I got the results of the mammogram back, and nothing's changed.
Rick: Oh, good. That's great to hear. Oh.
(Cell phone alert chimes)
Stephanie: Ridge, maybe?
Eric: Yeah. It's the alert from the e-mail. He's gonna tell me who's chosen to be C.E.O. I have to get inside and get it on the laptop.
Eric: Naw, you know what? Why don't I just tell him that I'll be C.E.O. again? What do you say?
Stephanie: No, you're not going to do that.
Stephanie: Honey, whoever he chooses, you mentor. Leave it at that .
Eric: All right.
Caroline: What about Thomas?
Caroline: Ah, very funny.
Rick: You think he has a chance at becoming C.E.O.?
Caroline: I mean, he is Ridge's son.
Rick: And I'm Eric's. Ridge will respect that.
Eric: Good. Everyone's here.
Donna: Would you like some water, Eric?
Eric: Yes, thanks.
Pam: He prefers sparkling.
Donna: He likes flat.
Donna: I would know. I was married to him.
Stephanie: (Clears throat)
Pam: What would you know about flat?
Eric: I'll have, uh--50/50, some of each. Thank you, Ladies.
Marcus: Hey, are we late?
Stephanie: No, you're not. Come on, let's get started.
Marcus: (Sighs) Well, it's a big day, huh, finding out who will be interim C.E.O.?
Rick: You got that right.
Marcus: Any idea who? Who do you think Ridge will choose?
Thomas: Well, I'm anxious to find out who. What about you, Rick?
Rick: I've got a pretty good idea.
Marcus: Well, it did surprise me that Ridge was doing this. He must be planning to stay away for quite a while. What do you think, Mom? You think it's because of Katie?
Donna: I'm not sure.
Marcus: Well, we did almost lose her. Kind of makes you remember that life's too short. I bet you Ridge is thinking that it's a lot smarter being alone with his bride rather than sweating it out here in the office.
Thomas: I just wish he'd make a decision already.
Katie: Please don't feel bad that you weren't here. I mean, everything-- everything worked out fine.
Katie: You okay?
Brooke: (Sighs) It was awful hearing those messages that you were in labor and that you had a heart attack. It just felt so lonely being so far away. (Sighs)
Katie: Well, I guess I'll try to plan my medical emergencies for when you and Ridge are in town. (Chuckles)
Brooke: Um, so that-- what happened? Did you really know that you were going into labor?
Katie: Yeah. I knew. (Chuckles) Uh, Bill and I were discussing something, and it--it--it just came on. It was sharp and sudden, and I had him take me to the hospital right away.
Brooke: Oh, my God. Bill must have been totally freaked out.
Katie: Yeah, you have no idea. Ah.
Brooke: (Sighs) Sound asleep.
Katie: Yeah, I heard. (Sighs) Nice lullaby.
Brooke: Oh, no. You weren't listening. Oh, that's... (Chuckles) That's really embarrassing.
Katie: Don't be embarrassed. None of us could ever carry tune.
Brooke: Yeah, I know-- none of us girls could, anyway. Stormy was always a good singer, however.
Katie: Did Donna tell you that I saw him?
Brooke: Who? Stormy?
Katie: Yeah. It's was--it was amazing. One minute, I was looking at Bill holding our son, and I was completely mesmerized by him-- the fact that he was here and that he was healthy. And then--then I just suddenly felt so tired, like--like nothing in this world could keep me here, and--and I was gone.
Brooke: Your heart.
Katie: I-I didn't even have time to be afraid.
Katie: I-I-I was vaguely aware of--of the doctors working on me, trying to revive me, and I had no idea that I was-- I was lying in that bed dying because I wasn't there anymore. I wasn't in the hospital. I wasn't in my body. And that's when he appeared.
Brooke: Oh, my God.
Katie: I--you--you don't have to believe me. I know it sounds crazy.
Brooke: No, no, no. I do. I believe you. What--what did he say?
Katie: He said that I had to keep fighting, that he wanted me to use his heart a little while longer, and that I needed to come back for my son and for Bill.
Brooke: Oh, Katie. (Gasps)
Katie: So I came back.
Brooke: (Chuckles) Just like that?
Katie: Yeah, it was. (Sighs) It was the strangest thing, because it was the most peaceful experience. And--and it never crossed my mind that I would want to leave, but then I started focusing on my son, and I started thinking about how I couldn't leave him alone with Bill.
Brooke: Storm was trying to tell you that you had more to live for.
Katie: (Sniffles) He didn't want me to waste his heart. (Chuckles)
Katie: So I guess I'll be spending a few more years here before I join the party, right?
Brooke: (Chuckles) That's right. Yes.
Brooke: And... (Sighs) Of course, you can't leave little Will alone with Bill any time soon, right?
Katie: (Sighs) No. Definitely not. (Sighs)
Eric: Ridge said he would e-mail any second now.
Eric: You know, he's not taking this decision lightly.
(E-mail alert chimes)
Eric: Oh, here we are. (Sighs)
Eric: "I want to thank everyone at Forrester for understanding why I need this time off. It's been extremely helpful to be away from L.A., and from the fashion industry. This honeymoon has opened my eyes to many things. It may seem strange taking this break from work, but it'll make me a better, more focused C.E.O. when I return. In the meantime, I realize our company needs a leader. As much as I'd like you to fill that role, Dad, I understand why you don't want to. You spent your entire life building this company for our family. You've earned your right to step back and be proud of what it's become. I'm confident the person I've chosen to take over will continue to make Forrester Creations the strong and successful family business you started. After careful consideration, I've made my decision. I've decided to name Thomas...
Rick: "Interim C.E.O. Thomas is a natural fit. He's everything we need in a leader right now. A talented designer who handles the press with charm and ease, he carries the Forrester name and represents it well. We'll all benefit from his youthful enthusiasm. I'm not sure how long I'll be away, but I have no doubt Thomas will fill my shoes extremely well until I return.
Stephanie: Congratulations, Tom.
Thomas: Thank you, Grandma. I'll make Dad proud. I'll make you all proud.
Rick: Are you freakin' kidding me? Thomas is gonna lead our company? He can draw and make a clown out of himself in front of the press, so suddenly he's C.E.O.? He has no business skills. He has no experience at--at running anything. Come on, Dad. You gotta do something about this. This isn't right.
Stephanie: Rick, the decision's been made.
Rick: The wrong one. Thomas, I mean, come on, you can't possibly believe that you can run this company.
Thomas: Yes, Rick, I do. I'm not saying I won't need a little guidance at first, but yeah, I'll be just fine. This is my birthright.
Rick: Your birthright. I'm Eric Forrester Jr., not Ridge, and certainly not you. Dad, get him on the phone. We're overriding this.
Eric: All right, Rick, you need to calm down. Just calm down, all right?
Rick: No, Dad, you see that this is wrong, right?
Eric: This is just while he's gone.
Rick: We don't know how long Ridge will be gone, and it could be months. I wouldn't let Thomas play C.E.O. for a day.
Thomas: Come on, man. Show a little respect.
Rick: To you?
Stephanie: Rick, the decision has been made. Accept it gracefully. Tom, you'll be great.
Pam: Come on, Donna. Let's type these up. Come on.
Marcus: Well, I guess meeting's adjourned.
Marcus: Congratulations, Brother.
Thomas: Thank you.
Marcus: You need anything, you let me know, all right?
Thomas: Appreciate it.
Eric: Thomas, let's, uh, let's meet up in a few?
Thomas: Sounds good. I'll be leaning on you, especially at first.
Eric: Good. Rick, you and I need to talk.
Rick: Later. I'd like a moment alone with Thomas.
Eric: All right.
Brooke: You want me to get out of your hair? You should be sleeping. Will is. And I know what it's like to have a newborn, so--
Katie: Oh, no, no. Don't--don't be silly, um, I-I mean, unless Ridge is missing you. I mean, this is probably the longest you've been apart since you went on your honeymoon.
Brooke: Uh, no. He's--he's not home. I came back alone.
Katie: (Sighs) Oh, man. I feel so guilty. You--you didn't have to come all the way back to Los Angeles. I told you on the phone--
Brooke: Honey, I wanted to. It's fine.
Katie: But to interrupt your honeymoon like this-- you must have a very understanding husband. (Sighs) Where did you go, anyway?
Brooke: Um, we went from Paris down to Nice, and then we hopped on the yacht. You know, we were gonna be around for a while. That's why it was hard to reach us, because we had no reception, and then we were... (Sighs) You know, it really-- it's not important. (Chuckles)
Katie: Well, when are you going back?
Brooke: I'm not.
Katie: I-I don't understand.
Brooke: It's just that the trip is over.
Katie: So Ridge is floating around the Mediterranean all by himself without his bride?
Brooke: That would be up to him.
Katie: What's going on?
Katie: Did something happen between you and Ridge?
Thomas: So what's the problem, Rick? I thought you'd support this.
Rick: How can I possibly?
Thomas: I don't know. You've been pretty friendly the past couple weeks. But here we are, back to that old familiar feeling of you glaring at me.
Caroline: You know what? Maybe we all just need to take a breather.
Thomas: (Scoffs) It was all an act, wasn't it, you convincing yourself that I'm a good enough guy to push onto Hope, so you could go after Caroline.
Thomas: Come on, you know it's true.
Rick: I'll never like you. I like what you do for Hope, how--how you treat her the way that Liam can't. That has nothing to do with my feelings for Caroline, not to say that I'm not better off for her than you, because I am-- better for Caroline and better suited to this company.
Thomas: You think that you are entitled to everything you want because you're Eric Forrester, Jr. Well, maybe if you got up and did something with your life instead of relying on your name, people would actually take you seriously.
Rick: What? Are you delusional? I've done more for this company than you ever will. I ran International. What have you done-- a few drawings, spent some weeks down at the loading dock?
Thomas: I am sick and tired of your whining, Rick. You're not running Forrester Creations ever. You're not getting Caroline, either. So just back off, you understand, Shorty? (Chuckles)
Rick: Yeah, Buddy, oh, I understand perfectly. Your daddy handed you a position that you didn't deserve, that you didn't earn.
Thomas: Look, I am C.E.O. of Forrester Creations, and you need to respect that.
Rick: Hey, respect this.
Thomas: You need to respect me.
Rick: Get your hands off me.
Thomas: You will respect me!
Rick: I said get your hands--
Caroline: Rick! Rick!
Katie: Brooke, you're-- you're scaring me. What's--what's going on? What happened to Ridge?
Brooke: No, I don't want to talk about it, okay?
Katie: What--but-- but something happened. Is he--is he all right? Is he hurt?
Be: No. No. Not... (Scoffs) He's not hurt in the way that you mean. (Sighs)
Brooke: Look, I-I didn't want to burden you with this. I just wanted to come here, and I wanted to make sure that you were okay. I wanted to help you. I wanted to help that--
Katie: Well, let--let me help you. You obviously need some help. But talk to me, please. Please tell me what's going on.
Brooke: Katie, you're not gonna believe this. I-I-I still can't believe this myself.
Katie: So Ridge hurt you. What did he do?
Brooke: No. No. It's nothing like that. No.
Katie: Oh, my God. Brooke, Brooke, you're shaking. Are you okay?
Brooke: Yes, I'm... (Sighs) No, I just--I get really upset talking about this, and still-- I don't even understand why it happened.
Katie: But let me--let me get you a glass of water, okay?
Brooke: (Breathing heavily)
Katie: Brooke, are you okay? Brooke, breathe. Are you okay, Brooke? Brooke?
