Stephanie: (Sighs)

Taylor: Oh. I was looking for Thomas.

Brooke: He's in a meeting. I don't think I'm forbidden to be here.

Taylor: Oh, I was just wondering why, um... (Inhales sharply) Uh, well, yeah, Thomas did tell me he would be running around the building today, meeting with various department heads.

Brooke: Well, he seems to be making quite the dramatic transition.

Taylor: He takes his interim C.E.O. position very seriously.

Brooke: Especially if he threw his predecessor out the window.

(Indistinct conversation)

Thomas: Any calls?

Donna: Oh, um, here you go.

Thomas: Great.

Donna: And your mother's waiting for you in the office.

Thomas: And whose office would that be?

Donna: Oh, uh, the art department said your name plaque should be ready tomorrow.

Thomas: Should be? They suddenly have a fear of commitment?

Donna: Oh, uh, well, they had to go out. (Chuckles) Strangely enough, we don't have jewelers' engraving tools in house.

Caroline: I'll come back later.

Thomas: Don't. Don't go.

Donna: And Miss Spencer would like a moment of your time.

Caroline: But it can wait.

Thomas: Could you give them the memo that I had you copy? I want everyone to know that there's going to be some organizational changes. Also, Caroline and I need some privacy at your desk for a few minutes.

Donna: No problem. (Chuckles) Excuse me.

Thomas: (Sighs)

Caroline: (Sighs)

Thomas: I was hoping you'd see things differently.

Caroline: I got your flowers, if that's what you mean.

Thomas: Did you like them?

Caroline: I mean, yeah, I thought they were very sweet the first day. But every day since...

Thomas: (Sighs)

Caroline: Thomas, it's getting embarrassing.

Thomas: Well, I doubt the delivery driver minds.

Caroline: No, Thomas. You're embarrassing yourself, so please stop.

Pam: I-I can't stay, you know.

Stephanie: Thanks for coming.

Pam: (Chuckles) Well, why not? Skipping lunch is good for my waistline anyway. (Inhales sharply) What's up? (Sighs)

Stephanie: I have something for you.

Pam: (Sighs) You had me come all the way over here in the car to hand me this? You couldn't just put it in the mailbox, Steph, really?

Stephanie: Not really.

Pam: (Scoffs) Do you want me to read it now?

Stephanie: Mm-hmm.

Pam: "Dear Pam, I'm having a party to celebrate my life. I want you to be a part of it." Oh. You're having a party?

Stephanie: Yes.

Pam: To...

Stephanie: Pam... my cancer's come back.

Pam: (Inhales sharply)

Thomas: No more flowers-- you got it, but I can do much better.

Caroline: Thomas, look--

Thomas: No, hold off making any more judgments, please. (Sighs) You're still bugged about Rick, aren't you? Him flying out the window-- it was an accident. He tripped, okay? I didn't shove him.

Caroline: Why are you telling me all this right now?

Thomas: No, I understand you're upset with me, and I get that. But Rick yanked me in on Hope for the Future and named me the designer at the press conferenceóbig shock-- but it was just one of his schemes to get me with Hope so that he would have a chance with you.

Caroline: No. Thomas, you kissed Hope. You did that in a-- in a room filled with reporters.

Thomas: I understand. Okay, that was a mistake and very bad judgment. Look, I got carried away. I grabbed an opportunity to get people talking. Yes, I care about Hope, but that's in my past, okay? I'm looking to the future. I'm running Forrester now, and I have a vision. Maybe you leaving me was a wake-up call that I needed. And I have so much going through my head for this company and for you. Give me another chance. You'll see.

Taylor: Everybody who witnessed what happened agrees that it was accidental.

Brooke: You mean, everybody who showed up afterwards to hear Thomas's version, not Rick and Caroline's, however, and they were there.

Taylor: Look, I understand that Rick is probably feeling a little disappointed that he was replaced.

Brooke: (Sighs) I wouldn't say replaced. Ridge was sending me a message by putting Thomas in the interim C.E.O. position, not Rick, as if he hasn't hurt me enough already.

Taylor: Are you maybe running out of ways of dealing with losing him? You think being bitter is better?

Brooke: No.

Pam: So the cancer came back, but you beat it before. You can beat it again.

Stephanie: No, that's not how it's going to work out this time.

Pam: (Sighs) I'm gonna call Dr. Lewis

Stephanie: No. No. Sit down. I've already seen--sit down. I've already seen Dr. Lewis. And... (coughs) and Eric was with me. It's very clear-cut.

Pam: (Sighs)

Stephanie: It's one of those things that you're just going to have to accept. I want you--I need you to accept what's happening. 

Thomas: (Sighs) I'm sorry to keep you waiting, Mother.

Taylor: Thomas. If you're busy, I can always come back, you know.

Thomas: No. No. You're fine. We still have Shipping and Accounting to visit. I just came in here for some privacy. Donna.

Donna: Yes?

Thomas: Where's Pam? She needs to hear this, to.

Donna: Oh, uh, out to lunch is all I know.

Thomas: (Sighs) Okay, I'm gonna avoid the obvious cheap shot there and simply say that the two of you working reception-- it--it's like a comedy routine. I think if the two of you can't get it together and accomplish your duties in a professional way, I'm going to have to let one of you go or both.

Donna: We'll do better.

Woman: We all will.

Thomas: Good. I'm counting on it.  There's gonna be a lot going on at Forrester, and I expect everybody to do their part, understand?

Pam: How do you know that there's nothing that can be done?

Stephanie: Oh, there are things that can be done, sweetie.

Pam: Oh.

Stephanie: Well, it's not gonna make any difference. I'm--I could do chemo. I could do radiation. But it will just buy me a little time.

Pam: Well, what kind of time? What are we talking, like, a year? Six months?

Stephanie: A month. Come on, honey.

Pam: (Sighs)

Stephanie: There's something that you want to say.

Pam: (Sighs)

Stephanie: Itís not true but say it.

Pam: What's not true?

Stephanie: That you'll be alone after I'm gone.

Pam: (Inhales sharply) I'm not thinking about myself now, Stephanie. I'm thinking about you.

Stephanie: We're sisters. We've been together our whole lives. I can't imagine living in a world without you. It would be like living in a world without a mirror, and I'm worried that that's what you'll think after I'm gone.

Pam: (Sniffles) I don't--I'm sorry. I--it doesn't matt-- it doesn't matter. I'm sorry if I-- if I...

Stephanie: No, no.

Pam: I'm sorry.

Stephanie: It's all right.

Pam: I'm--

Stephanie: It's okay. Whatever you feel and you think is perfectly fine.

Pam: No, it's not.

Stephanie: Just--sweetheart, be honest, now say what you want to say.

Pam: (Sobs)

Stephanie: Because you won't have a chance after I'm gone.

Pam: (Sniffles) Well, maybe it's kind of selfish, but what do I have without you?  Just a bunch of strangers who are forced to call me family, but nobody really knows me, not that way that you do, Steph.

Pam: (Sighs)

(Flashback to past times with the two sisters)

Pam: Hi, Stephanie. It's been a long time.

Stephanie: Well, you've done it again.

Pam: Thank you, Sis. Pretty good, isn't it?

Stephanie: (Chuckles)

Pam: Their marriage isn't valid!

Stephanie: (Chuckles) Oh, my God. This is a miracle.  Pam, you're a miracle worker. Ha ha!

Stephanie: Your big sister will be here to take care of you for a long, long, long time.

Pam: Promise?

Stephanie: Mm-hmm. I promise.

Thomas: As you can see, I'm up to my neck in my new job and loving every bit of it.

Taylor: Yes, and I thought your father ran a tight ship.

Thomas: Yes, he did.

Taylor: So it's only been a week or so, and you've already got problems developing?

Thomas: Who said anything about problems?

Brooke: Did you really have to be that hard on Donna?

Thomas: Let's be honest. My father has done a lot and tolerated a lot to keep peace in this family, especially to humor you. But the point is, you and your sister are not family anymore. You are valued employees. Donna has a lot of stepping up to do before that can be said of her.

Brooke: Careful, Thomas. You're wading into dangerous waters.

Taylor: (Sighs)

Thomas: Look, I have a lot of work to do. I'm interim C.E.O. My father has trusted me with this position, and I intend to prove his faith warranted. Now if you'll excuse me...

Pam: It's never gonna be right, Steph.

Stephanie: What isn't, honey? You didn't think I was gonna live forever.

Pam: No, but I should have done more for you. You've done so much for me.

Stephanie: Oh, Pam. Stop it.

Pam: It's true.

Stephanie: What are you talking about? I had the life I had-- I mean, you gave me my life because you agreed to take care of that insane passive-aggressive woman who claimed to be our mother.

Pam: (Inhales sharply)

Stephanie: (Chuckles) Honey, if I have had to take care of her, I'd have ended up at Joliet for murder...

Pam: I-

Stephanie: Premeditated.

Pam: (Chuckles)

(More flashbacks)

Ann: Stephanie, what a pleasant surprise.

Stephanie: Hello, Mother.

Ann: I never could understand why you chose to live in Los Angeles. It's so hot and smoggy and all those insincere people--actors and heaven knows what all. I would die-- absolutely die-- if you put me in one of your fashion shows. And I have been told I have a certain flair... (Chuckles) For what, I don't know.

Pam: Do you have any pain medication? They must have given you something.

Ann: I took it all.

Stephanie: Well, what did you think you were gonna do once you got here?

Ann: (Sighs) Maybe you could give me some of that medical marijuana.

(End of flashback)

Pam: (Scoffs) She made me so mad sometimes!

Stephanie: She was an infuriating woman.

Pam: But-- but I still miss her.

Stephanie: Well course, you do, honey. She's our mother.

Pam: (Laughs)

Stephanie: You think she'll be surprised to see me?

Pam: (Laughs) You gonna give her a piece of your mind?

Stephanie: No. No. I'm--I'm over that. Any message you want me to give her?

Pam: (Sighs)

Taylor: You know, I-I'm sure that Thomas is just under a lot of stress, probably more than he wants to admit.

Brooke: (Sighs) You're the psychiatrist.

Taylor: What does that mean?

Brooke: What is he trying to prove, Taylor, telling me that I'm not part of the family anymore?

Taylor: (Sighs)

Brooke: I mean, with that attitude, he's not gonna last very long as Mr. C.E.O.

Taylor: Come on, Brooke, cut him a little slack, okay? This is an international company.

Brooke: You gonna be talking to Ridge anytime soon?

Taylor: I'm sure I will at some point.

Brooke: I hope history won't repeat itself.

Taylor: That's all it seems to ever do with us, I guess.

Brooke: The history where you think that it's over between Ridge and me. Well, it's not, and it won't be.

Taylor: Okay. (Clears throat)

(Door closes)

Brooke: (Sighs)

Pam: You really think that you can give messages to people in heaven?

Stephanie: How do you know she's in heaven?

Pam: (Scoffs) She is. You didn't see her in Chicago, Steph. She was so nice to our doorman.

Stephanie: I'm gonna miss you. (Chuckles) All the people she wasn't related to, they adored her. (Sighs)

Pam: You think that you inherited the cancer from her?

Stephanie: No. It's not the same kind.

Pam: Still--

Stephanie: And you're not going to come down with it...

Pam: I wasn't--

Stephanie: Either. You'll live to be 95.

Pam: Thinking that, Stephanie. (Sighs)

Stephanie: There is something, though, that I--well... (Sighs) I'd kind of like to borrow from Mom. You--you remember what she requested of us?

(Another flashback)

Ann: I will not go to the hospital. That is my one wish, and you will honor it.

Pam: It was awful. It was awful!

Stephanie: You let them take her to the hospital?

Pam: You should have answered your phone!

Stephanie: What have you done? What have you done?

Pam: You should have answered your phone.

Stephanie: My God, Pam!

Pam: It was...

Dr. Lewis: This isn't paradise, but it's the best that we can do.

Pam: (Sighs) Don't leave us, Mom.

Ann: Sit up straight, Pammy.

Stephanie: It's okay. You can go.

("The Water Is Wide" by Orla Fallon playing)

Pam: (Sobs)

Singer: The water is wide I can't cross o'er and neither have I wings to fly

(End of flashback)

Pam: You don't want anyone taking care of you?

Stephanie: No, no, no, no. That's--no. I don't want to go to the hospital.

Pam: But you know I'm not very good at keeping that promise.

Stephanie: Well, this time, you're going to have to keep that promise for me, because Eric's going to be useless. What if I promise to take care of you?

Pam: How? I don't want you to leave me any money.

Stephanie: What's wrong with money? (Laughs)

Pam: Well, what do you mean?

Stephanie: Oh. Look. Never mind. You'll see, okay? It's all right.

Pam: I'm just-- I'm just no good all alone by myself, Steph.

Stephanie: Honey. Oh, baby girl.

Pam: (Sobs)

Stephanie: Baby girl. I'll be right there. I'll be looking over your shoulder. I'll be that little blue bird perched right there just for you.

Pam: (Sighs)

Stephanie: Just for you, baby girl.

Pam: (Sobs)
