Katie: You mean not right away. Steffy and Liam shouldn't have a baby right away.
Steffy: That's not what Dr. Caspary said. [Voice breaking] You said I can't conceive again? Did you mean never?
Dr. Caspary: That's not a word we use in medicine.
Liam: Will, you see this? This is a golf ball. It's bad for you. No, you -- I know. You want to eat it, but you can't.
Bill: W-w-what are you doing putting my son -- your own little brother -- on a germ-ridden floor?
Bill: Come here, you.
Liam: Chill out. He's got his blanket, and Alison said they just steam-cleaned the carpet.
Bill: Well, all right. Maybe, on second thought, it would be good for you -- expose you to germs, strengthen your immune system, toughen you up a little bit, huh?
Liam: So, how was, uh, "Brooke rides again -- the re-launch"? She strut her stuff?
Bill: Uh...well, there wasn't really any stuff being strutted, at least, not by, uh -- not by Aunt Brooke, anyway.
Liam: What do you -- why? Did they call it off?
Bill: No, no. Uh, you know, from what I saw of it -- at least what the models were wearing -- it was good. It was good. It just wasn't as advertised. I mean, I'd call it sedate, but it wasn't that, either. Brooke didn't take off her clothes, but she did lose her head.
Eric: Here. Here's some water. Sip. Sip and relax and try to breathe, all right? Here. Come on.
Brooke: No. I-I'm fine, Eric.
Eric: [Sighs] You're not all right.
Brooke: [Sighs] What can I say? You don't want to hear it.
Eric: Brooke, you're acting like your life is over.
Brooke: But what? There's a silver lining?
Eric: Brooke, you've been through worse than this. Nobody's died.
Brooke: Right. Maybe Katie won't have a heart attack after all. And maybe all she'll do when she finds out that I'm pregnant with Bill's child is leave him and leave her family and spend the rest of her life all alone. Maybe the press won't make a big deal out of this. And maybe I won't be shunned by everybody in my life. I wonder if you'll be one of them.
Eric: Brooke, I know you're panicked.
Brooke: You, of all people, know what it's like to love a child that isn't yours biologically.
Eric: I didn't find out about that until he was a grown man.
Brooke: Does that really matter? Did it change the way you feel?
Eric: Would I do it all again? Is that the question?
Brooke: Okay. Okay. Um...what if I-I asked you for less? Much less. Would that make it easier on you?
Liam: What do you mean Brooke lost her head?
Bill: You know, she was supposed to do that whole "Sex it up in silk" thing, but instead, she -- she freaked out for no good reason.
Liam: Well, maybe she just had one of those days we all have, you know, where you look in the mirror and don't like what you see.
Bill: Yeah, that doesn't happen to Brooke Logan.
Bill: Or -- or to me or to you, for that matter, and -- w-what? A stapler? What, you have a stapler on the floor with the baby? You think that's an appropriate toy for him? What?
Liam: Yeah. I just figured I'd staple his onesie to the desk. That way, I can take a nap.
Bill: Yeah, I'm gonna staple you in the forehead.
Bill: See? Look, you upset him.
Liam: I did not upset him. I took all the staples out so you can't staple me. [Deep voice] Isn't that right? [Imitates chomping]
Bill: You're not half bad with kids, you know that?
Liam: I just happen to like this one. That's all.
Bill: Well, you know what I think? I think you're using your little brother for practice -- dad practice.
Katie: I don't understand. You said you stopped the internal bleeding.
Dr. Caspary: A D&C is considered safe, but, in rare cases, there can be complications. I'm sure Dr. Gable, the surgeon, had you sign a consent form, or maybe your husband did.
Katie: You're giving her antibiotics. Is she sick?
Dr. Caspary: Well, that's a precaution until the blood cultures come back. There's an elevated risk of infection in her condition.
Steffy: [Voice breaking] No, no, no. I promised my husband a child, and I'm going to give him a child. And now you're telling me that I can't? I am not hearing that.
Brooke: What if you were to say that there was...one night that you and I -- while Taylor was at a conference or working -- that we gave in to our feelings for each other because of our history and out of grief for Stephanie?
Eric: And, as fate would have it, that's the night you conceived?
Brooke: Yeah. That's all it would take, Eric. You wouldn't have to take care of the baby. You wouldn't have to do anything else for me after that.
Eric: You think that appeals to me -- having nothing to do with you for the rest of my life? Having to avoid being alone with you the rest of my life? But neither does lying to the woman I wake up next to every morning. That doesn't appeal to me, either.
Brooke: I know, I know. I know. You've already told me that, and that's why I asked for what I really wanted in the first place.
Eric: A life with me? You could have had that.
Brooke: I know. And I know you love me. And I know if things were different -- if I was just a little older and wiser and smarter -- that we could have had a chance. And I think we still can. And I always thought that if everything just went to hell, that you would be there for me.
Eric: I will. I'll stand by you, Brooke. I'll support you in anything you do... except for this. Ask me anything else.
Brooke: Okay. Well, just come see me tonight. Just... [Sighs] Help me figure out another way out of this.
Taylor: I am really going to have to get back in the habit of knocking.
Brooke: [Chuckles] It's all right. We're finished here. Just think about it, okay?
Eric: I will.
Katie: You're saying the procedure was botched -- the D&C.
Dr. Caspary: I'm saying there was an adverse outcome.
Katie: I want to talk to Dr. Gable.
Steffy: This isn't making any sense. Why can't you just talk to me in plain English?
Dr. Caspary: After a miscarriage, there may be tissue the uterus isn't able to expel.
Katie: We understand all that.
Dr. Caspary: Sometimes, the procedure can create scar tissue to excess.
Katie: You mean if it's done improperly.
Dr. Caspary: And in some women, there's an overproduction of scar tissue that is an idiopathic response. It's unforeseeable. It seizes up the uterine walls, and menstruation stops.
Katie: Do you want me to call Liam?
Steffy: No. No, I-I don't -- I don't want to upset him. I refuse to accept this. I am not leaving here until someone takes responsibility, until there's plan for making me whole again.
Taylor: So, you think that will be enough for you for dinner tonight?
Eric: This? It's huge.
Eric: I ought to get through the night okay with that. Thank you very much. Thank you.
Taylor: Well, I won't be able to have dinner with you, so I didn't want you to go unfed.
Eric: You take very good care of me.
Taylor: Does it sound silly to say that I feel lucky that you let me do that?
Eric: No. Not at all. So, you have late patients tonight? What is it?
Taylor: No. I have a date...with Thomas. Uh, we were going to see Steffy, too, but she's really not ready after losing the baby.
Eric: She knows if anybody can help her, you can.
Taylor: Yeah. You know, maybe it's none of my business, but...what's going on with Brooke? You know, I heard that she didn't want to wear her lingerie at the press conference for the re-launch, and she walked out of here like her dog just died.
Eric: Well, it's a long story. Or maybe not.
Brooke: He'll remember.
Liam: It was an accident.
Liam: It was just...Steffy being Steffy. And that's the woman I married. I can't blame her for that, and I don't.
Bill: You can and you do. It doesn't have to make sense, Liam. I mean, logic is a slow learner. It wasn't just her child. It was yours, too.
Liam: Right. I-I-I know. I mean, I know it was an accident. I know it's not her fault. I thank God that she's okay. But what about my sense of loss? I mean, what -- what about my hopes and dreams for the future? See, nobody ever thinks about that. She's my wife. We're supposed to be going through this together. And I can't be sad with her, because every time I am, she thinks it's her fault.
Steffy: Dr. Gable. Tell me about my D&C. Don't look at her. Look at me. Are you worried about some lawsuit? Because am I not interested in that right now. If I have to tell my husband that we can't have children, I should be able to tell him why.
Dr. Gable: You miscarried subsequent to trauma from your accident.
Steffy: That much I know.
Dr. Gable: The womb failed to evacuate completely. We did a scan and saw there were adhesions to the uterine lining. There's a drug we can use to induce evacuation, but the ongoing blood loss was too severe to wait. It had to be stopped. A D&C was indicated. Dr. Caspary concurred. The procedure itself was unremarkable. There was no hemorrhaging, nothing of concern. I've seen the photos that Dr. Caspary took with the scope, and the scarring is so hypertrophic and widespread, it -- it suggests an organic predisposition.
Steffy: So, what you're saying is that this is my fault.
Dr. Gable: I'm sure quality assurance will be reviewing the video, and I will accept their judgment, of course. But the fact is, even if I had known what the outcome would be, I don't see how I could have done anything differently.
Steffy: Dr. Caspary says you doctors never say "Never." So, there has to be a way to reverse this.
Dr. Gable: There are a few surgeons -- very specialized -- who have explored experimental techniques.
Katie: We'll need a list.
Dr. Caspary: I-it's only fair to tell you that the results have been disappointing.
Dr. Gable: I'm not certain you'd be a candidate, but I will research it for you, of course.
Steffy: [Crying] I was never one of those girls who always wanted to have kids. I just figured if I did, I'd be a lot older, and if I didn't... oh, well. So, why do I have no idea about the rest of my life? [Sniffles] [Sobbing]
Eric: Brooke's had a very difficult time in her life. I don't think she's ever felt so alone. But let's not let our happiness make us callous to those who are less fortunate.
Taylor: [Chuckles] Thank you...for leading me back to being the person I want to be -- happy and content and minding my own business. Okay.
Taylor: So, listen, I have to go take care of a few things before I meet with Thomas. So, what will you do?
Eric: Probably nothing.
Taylor: Good night.
Eric: Good night. Thanks for this.
[Cell phone chimes]
Brooke: Great. Thank you.
When would you like us to come cart it all away? It take less time to break the tent down.
Brooke: [Sighs] Sometime tomorrow. I'll leave the gate open. Not too early. [Sighs]
Liam: You know, all she can talk about is trying again.
Bill: That's a bad thing?
Liam: No. I -- she didn't want that before. We got pregnant by accident. And now, all of a sudden, having a baby is like -- it's everything.
Bill: Well, right. It's a sea change. And that's to be expected. A woman carries around a baby for months, and...it changed Steffy's body chemistry.
Bill: Maybe it changed yours, as well.
Liam: Well, yeah. I mean, I was -- I was somebody's father for a little bit there. And I wanted it just as much as she did. [Sighs] But, you know, if I'm being honest, I don't think I can handle that kind of disappointment again.
Katie: Did Dr. Gable say that he'd come back, or do you think he'll call with the list?
Steffy: I won't hear from him. He has no faith in those experimental procedures. You heard.
Katie: Still...never's not a word they use in medicine.
Steffy: Because they can't bear the look on your face if they do.
Brooke: I knew you'd come. Look familiar?
Eric: [Chuckles] Our honeymoon. Our tent in the desert.
Brooke: That's right. [Chuckles] Is there anything I forgot?
Brooke: I was such a young girl back then when you first surprised me with all of this. It was the beginning of our life together.
Eric: So we thought.
Brooke: It could be again.
