Nicole: Say something.
Maya: I'm not having this conversation.
Nicole: What? I'm not important enough? The least you could do is tell me the truth. Are you my big brother or my big sister?
Maya: Whatever you think you know, Nicole --
Nicole: M-Y-R-O-N. That is what I know. You were named after Grandpa Avant.
Maya: You never had an older brother.
Nicole: I saw the birth certificate. I held it in my hand.
Maya: That's impossible.
Katie: I think a little reality check might be in order here. I mean, before you try to force-feed me this "Maya and I are all about honesty" pill. Didn't she break up with you at one point and she never even told you why?
Rick: Yes. Because your husband was blackmailing her.
Katie: [Sighs] That is beside the point.
Rick: [Chuckling] Yeah.
Katie: I'm just worried about this pedestal you're setting her on. I mean, she's human. She's gonna disappoint you. And then what? More bullet holes in the wall?
Brooke: Oh. Gosh. Just seems so wasteful.
Deacon: [Laughs] Brooke, I'm gonna remind you of a little something. You're filthy, dirty rich. I think it'll be okay. Besides, if you don't stay up all night getting wasted, then it's not really a waste, is it?
Brooke: Yeah, well, I could call the local liquor store. They will always deliver.
Deacon: Yeah, but you'd have to be drunk to do that.
Brooke: [Chuckles] Did I say thank you?
Deacon: My memory's a little spotty.
Brooke: I know I've been awful to you through the years. I don't even know why you're here for me right now. But...thank you.
[Cell phone beeps]
Brooke: Where does Quinn think you are?
Deacon: She thinks I'm with a friend. It's called AA, and you need to go to a meeting tonight, if not sooner.
Brooke: Oh, and don't worry. I'm not gonna be calling you every five minutes.
Deacon: It's funny, you know, it used to always be my fantasy to be the guy who rescued you from everything. Not the guy that you had to be rescued from.
Rick: I feel sorry for you and my mom -- most people that we know. 'Cause if you want to settle and call it being realistic... you know, that's fine by me. But if I can't trust somebody one every level, I'd rather just be alone.
Nicole: I don't remember you living with us.
Maya: I moved out when you were young. You knew that.
Nicole: I don't know if you ever saw it. But mama had this book. "So your kid wants to know about" -- you know, some title like that. And when I was asked on my first date, she brought it into the kitchen. And... she showed me some pictures of girls who get venereal disease. And I didn't understand what she was talking about. I didn't know how you could get it going to a high school dance. When they left the house, I looked for it and... I finally found it. Up high in the garage, tucked away in one of mama's old bags. And hidden in the bag... was a hospital bracelet. And a baby picture. And a birth certificate... for Myron Avant.
Maya: It wasn't mine.
Nicole: "Male" is what it said. At first, I thought they had a baby that died.
Maya: It wasn't mine.
Nicole: What's your date of birth, then, Maya?
Maya: It -- it wasn't mine. Because I had it changed.
Quinn: You're home!
Deacon: I am home.
Quinn: Yay! So, were you a hero?
Deacon: Little bit.
Deacon: What are you working on?
Quinn: I am putting some felt around these so it doesn't scratch your sensitive skin.
Deacon: [Laughs] Well, my wrists thank you.
Quinn: Yeah. Hey, um...was there a, uh, typo in the text you sent me?
Quinn: Well, I mean, I thought I was up on all the crazy internet slang these kids are using these days, but "ily"? Does that -- does that mean "I'm leaving you"?
Deacon: I love you.
Quinn: You're helping some guy stay sober and that's what you're thinking about?
Katie: Maybe this visit was a bad idea. I mean, really my only intention was to tell you that Brooke and I are friends again. So we should be closer, too. You don't have to tell yourself that Maya is the only one you can count on.
Rick: I love you, aunt Katie. I do. Maybe you think I should have spilled my guts while my mother was away. But here's the thing. You're married to a guy who wants a portion of my company, who thinks that I'm some sort of undisciplined head case. So how can I rely on you? Because if the choice ever came down to between me or bill, you would choose bill every time. And I have a woman now that I can tell everything to, so you'll have to forgive me if she's the one I prefer to turn to.
Nicole: I knew it.
Maya: You want money? Isn't that what this is all about?
Nicole: First you lie to me, then you insult me?
Maya: [Sighs] Nothing wrong with looking out for yourself. It was always the key to my success. Although blackmailing people isn't the most pleasant way to get there.
Nicole: What else was I supposed to do to get you to admit that you're a freak?
Maya: Our father used that word, too.
Nicole: Our whole lives were a lie because of you.
Maya: What's the first thing you remember about me?
Nicole: One of the Missouri cousins was getting married. I was...7? When I went to give auntie Caroline a kiss, she said to me in my ear, "tell your sister I said hello."
Maya: She did? I always wondered if she knew.
Nicole: So I asked about it on the way home. It got so quiet, I knew it was true. And dad said, "yes, you have a sister that ran away from home. But we don't talk about her to spare mama's feelings." She didn't say anything. And that was it. Until a lady showed up at my school.
Maya: Your ninth birthday.
Nicole: You gave me a little velvet horse. And took me out for ice cream.
Maya: I was so alone. And I wanted to know you. I know you won't believe it now, but... I wanted you to let me love you because I knew how hard it was to feel love in that house.
Nicole: Then why didn't you come back?
Maya: Because, Nicole, it felt impossible.
Nicole: Nobody made a scene when you walked me home.
Maya: Not till you went upstairs.
Nicole: You could have come back!
Maya: I did. Until I had to go.
Nicole: I was lonely, too.
Maya: I'm sorry. You could have taken me with you.
Maya: No, sweetie, I couldn't. I had to come here to California. There were things here that I needed that I couldn't get in other places then, things that I couldn't even ask for until I was 21.
Nicole: You didn't look then like you do now.
Deacon: Yes, I think about you, I think about loving you. It makes me happy.
Quinn: That's sweet.
Deacon: You don't think about me? I mean, obsessively. You know, in that way that you do about everything?
Quinn: Sure. Yes, I think, um... "why is he not here and how long is it going to take him to get back here to me?"
Deacon: Okay, well, I guess that's a start. That's a little like love.
Quinn: [Chuckles] So, how did it go? I'm not asking for specifics or names or anything. I respect the anonymity rule, but were you able to help?
Deacon: Yeah, I think I did.
Quinn: So he's not gonna drink?
Deacon: Who? No, no, not tonight.
Katie: So where do you see this relationship with Maya going? I mean, you and Caroline always talked about having children.
Rick: Well, that's definitely not gonna happen with Ridge. I mean... he's already raised a couple families.
Katie: So the children you talked about having with Caroline -- are you gonna have them with Maya?
Nicole: Did you always have that voice?
Maya: It's been a few years.
Nicole: Did you always talk like a girl?
Maya: How do girls talk?
Nicole: You weren't born with those.
Maya: No woman is.
Nicole: Even your face is different. I saw it right away. Your cheeks, your eyes -- what did you do to yourself?
Maya: I grew into my body. The same way that you did.
Nicole: I've read about the operations and...procedures. What did you have done? How many?
Nicole: Why couldn't you just wear the clothes?
Maya: Because being myself isn't an outfit that I can put and take off.
Nicole: But if you didn't look right in the dress, didn't that tell you something? Namely that you were a boy?
Maya: Never. I never was.
Nicole: I mean the way nature made you.
Maya: This is the way I was born. Every third woman in this town has a little bit of work done. New chin, a new nose, new breasts. Who knows what kind of private alterations? Would you go up to her on the street and ask how many? Is she not a woman because some rebuilding has been involved?
Nicole: It's not the same thing, and you know it.
Maya: I knew I worried dad from a young age. Other people didn't catch on until I was...about the age you were when I picked you up from school. But I always knew.
Nicole: You couldn't. Kids don't think like that.
Maya: I knew I wasn't supposed to say anything. Nobody had to tell me that. I hated haircuts and Sundays. Little boys had a freedom that little girls don't have, and I never complained about that. But come Sunday... I knew that I was supposed to be wearing dresses like the other little girls at church. Our mother said I would grow out of it. That lots of little boys play with dolls, she said.
Nicole: She said those were her dolls.
Maya: [Chuckles] She was always trying to protect me. Make excuses for me. Mothers will do that. Maybe it was how much I got sent home from school or how much I got beat up that made her panic. But at a certain point, I stopped panicking. And I realized I'm not a freak. I know this is a shock for you. But the reason that you have only known me as your older sister is because that's who I am. It's who I've always been.
Deacon: It was a little weird, to tell the truth.
Quinn: Was he crazy and desperate? I mean, you should be used to that with me.
Deacon: [Laughs] You know, Quinn, I haven't been to A.A. Meetings in years. You know, I -- you probably didn't notice, but the minute I walked through the door, the first thing that was on my mind was just instinctively grabbing a beer out of the fridge. And this person is really new, and when you're new, you have to have a sponsor. That's somebody who's been clean and sober for awhile, and that's just not me anymore. But I really think I helped them. I mean, I do, and the thing about it is -- it made me feel stronger, you know? More committed to my sobriety.
Quinn: Question. Are you gonna be all inspirational now? Do I have to maybe start reading a self-help book or two?
Deacon: Please don't do anything rash.
Quinn: [Chuckles] Okay. I'm gonna go down and close up the shop. You... put these with the other toys.
Deacon: [Laughs] I think I remember where these go.
[Cell phone ringing]
Brooke: It's you.
Deacon: How's it going?
Brooke: Oh, uh, good. I was just taking the bottles out to the garage to recycling. How are you?
Deacon: I'm good if you are.
Brooke: You helped. A lot.
Deacon: [Chuckles] Well, I'm not a very helpful person by nature.
Brooke: And yet here you are, calling to check up on me.
Deacon: Take care, okay, Brooke?
Brooke: Have a good day.
Rick: Yeah, I know Maya wants kids. She had a daughter that she lost. She never got over that. So, yeah, when the time is right... you know, I think she's more in that nesting phase and less focused on her career.
Katie: So you would actually marry her?
Rick: Why? I mean, can you think of one good reason not to?
Nicole: I don't understand how Rick could not know. If you love him like you say, how could you have lied to him all this time?
Maya: I never told him a lie. Not one. Unlike you.
Nicole: Is that how you convince yourself that this is right? That -- that it's honest?
Maya: I broke up with Rick when we first met because I thought -- well, I thought he would react like you did. So I dated someone else.
Nicole: A man?
Maya: Yes. A man. But I was in love with Rick. And I decided to find out if he would really reject me instead of rejecting myself in advance.
Nicole: But you still don't know that. How could Rick not find out? You talk about marriage, you need a birth certificate for that.
Maya: I told you I had it changed. It's one of the reasons I needed to come to California. I still had to go before a judge in Illinois, but it's done now.
Nicole: They let you do that?
Maya: Let me? You have no idea the barriers that they put up. The affidavits, the evaluations, the doctor signatures. Look, the bottom line is... I had a medical problem that I needed corrected, so that my outside would match my inside. And for the first time, I felt like me. For the first time, I loved myself, and isn't that the point of living? I had to love myself before I could let someone else love me, and I am sorry that that took a toll on us. But I can be there for you now. If you let me.
