Proofread By Gisele
Caroline: She deleted it?
Steffy: Every copy she had.
Thomas: Off of all of her devices?
Steffy: The video's gone. Wyatt made sure of it.
Thomas: [Sighs] This doesn't sound like Ivy.
Caroline: I mean, at least not the Ivy that she's been lately.
Thomas: So she's finally come to her senses?
Steffy: Yeah, apparently.
Thomas: Do you trust her?
Steffy: Do I trust Ivy? No. But I do believe the video is gone. We made a pact to never talk about it again. To anyone. I wasn't thrilled Thomas told you about it. You didn't say anything to my dad?
Caroline: No. Not a word.
Steffy: Good. Let's keep it that way.
Ridge: Wow. Good morning.
Steffy: Uh, Lieutenant Baker called. He said that the investigation into Aly's death has been closed.
Ridge: Well, good. There shouldn't have been an investigation in the first place.
Steffy: He also called Thorne. It's all over.
Ridge: All right. Good news. Oh, and speaking of good news, I have some. At least I hope you think it's good news.
Katie: Oh! Hey!
Brooke: Hi! Oh, this is a surprise. What are you two doing here?
Katie: Oh, well, we've been summoned. Caroline wants to talk to her uncle.
Brooke: About what?
Bill: Well, it's a big mystery. But she says it's important.
Ridge: We're engaged.
Steffy: What? Oh, my God. How -- how did this come about?
Ridge: Oh, the craziest thing. I asked her, and she said yes.
Steffy: I know -- [Laughs]
Ridge: I know you weren't crazy about this in the beginnings.
Steffy: No, no, if -- if this is what you want. I mean, if this is what both of you want.
Caroline: We do.
Ridge: We do.
Thomas: Aww. And the two shall respond as one.
Steffy: You knew about this?
Thomas: Yeah. Yeah. Uh, Dad asked me to be his best man.
Steffy: Well, then I-I guess congratulations are in order.
Caroline: Thank you, Steffy.
Steffy: Yeah, of course. Have you posted anything?
Caroline: No, no, no, no. Uh, but I did tell my moms, and they were very excited.
Thomas: What about your uncle?
Caroline: Oh, my gosh. Yeah. I'm supposed to go talk to him right now, so I'm gonna -- I'm gonna see you later, okay?
Ridge: Hmm. All right. Now you can tell me.
Steffy: Tell you what?
Ridge: What you really think.
Steffy: Well, it's -- it's obvious you're all-in.
Thomas: More than you think. Dad, you want to tell her the other part?
Ridge: We're not only getting married. We're gonna start a family.
Bill: You've been around Caroline more than I have. What's going on with her?
Brooke: Well, uh...
Bill: Come on, Brooke. I mean, we're all...family.
Katie: Maybe she doesn't know what's going on. Don't make her uncomfortable.
Bill: I'm not making her uncomfortable. Am I making you uncomfortable?
Brooke: I'm not Caroline's confidante.
Bill: But she's dating the dressmaker, which means I'm sure you're keeping tabs on her.
Brooke: Ridge and I are friends. Nothing more.
Caroline: Hi! Sorry, sorry, sorry. Didn't mean to keep you waiting.
Bill: Well, you did keep us waiting. So...cut to the chase.
Brooke: I'll give you some privacy.
Caroline: Uh, no, no, no. It's fine. I mean, I have happy news, and I'm okay to share it with everyone. Care to guess?
Katie: Did you get a promotion?
Caroline: I did not. But I will give you a hint.
Katie: Oh...my God. You're engaged.
Steffy: So you broke up with Caroline for one night before deciding you want to have a baby with her?
Ridge: It was a significant night.
Steffy: Must have been.
Ridge: [Sighs] I told her I wasn't gonna be the one that can give her a baby yet -- I just didn't want that -- and to find someone who wants to give that to her, so she left.
Steffy: And then?
Ridge: And then I-I just couldn't get her out of my mind. Thinking about what I did to her, what I did to us. So I tried to -- I wanted to talk to her about Aly and Thorne and about Phoebe. And not a day goes by where I don't miss your sister. There's something that comes with the great gift of being a parent, and that is the constant fear of losing them. But there's been so much loss, and...and I just -- I don't want to lose Caroline. But she was out there in the night, devastated and alone, probably wondering if she was ever gonna be enough. So I called her. She didn't want to tell me where she was. And I just wanted to make things right, you know?
Steffy: Make things right by getting married and having a child?
Ridge: Yeah. It's gonna be funny, huh? Have another boy or girl running around --
Steffy: No, Dad, I'm serious. You didn't want this. And Caroline knew that. I mean, God, have you really thought this through?
Ridge: Did you think it through when you wanted to be with Liam? No, sometimes we just do what we think is right. And I want to spend the rest of my life with this woman. I love her. And I know what it feels like for her to walk out the door, and I don't ever want to feel that again.
Steffy: And you're okay with this?
Thomas: It's not about me. Or you, for that matter. Dad proposed, and Caroline accepted. What I want is for Caroline and -- and Dad to be happy, and I'm not gonna do anything to get in the way of that.
Katie: Wow, that is some ring.
Bill: You do realize he has a drawer full, though, don't you?
Caroline: Uncle Bill. I'm getting married.
Bill: No, no, you're engaged. That doesn't mean you're actually getting married.
Caroline: No, I'm getting married. Look, I get it. It's kind of weird, because everybody has history with him. But everyone's moved on. I mean, look, you're with my superstud uncle. Brooke, you could have anybody that you want, so...
Katie: It's just, um, this is a bit unexpected.
Bill: Not to me. I knew the second you started working with that predator this is where it was heading.
Caroline: Well, I didn't. I mean, I was attracted to him, obviously.
Bill: But you were married. Of course, the dressmaker likes it that way.
Caroline: What about you, Brooke? You haven't said anything.
Brooke: Marriage can be a huge commitment.
Bill: Not to Ridge.
Brooke: Have you thought about the implications?
Caroline: That -- yeah, I get to spend my life with the man that I love, so...
Bill: Latest in a long line for him.
Caroline: You know what? We all have our pasts, okay? I used to be with Rick. Ridge used to be with Brooke and you.
Bill: Yeah, why don't we just recite the list? Start now, maybe we'll be done by sunset.
Caroline: It doesn't matter, you know? All that matters is that I found Ridge and that he found me.
Brooke: Are you ready for marriage?
Brooke: Is Ridge?
Caroline: Yes. He's as committed as I am.
Brooke: Marriage is more than just a husband and a wife.
Caroline: What -- what does that -- what does that even mean?
Brooke: You want to have a family.
Brooke: Well, it's been a point of contention between you and Ridge. Ridge can't give you a family.
Caroline: And I was just happy to be with him.
Bill: Without the possibility of having children?
Caroline: Uncle, I love him. I want to have kids, but it's not a dealbreaker for me not to be with him.
Katie: Okay, so you're gonna marry Ridge and not have children?
Caroline: No. Because he changed his mind, and we're gonna actually start a family. He even bought a bassinet.
Bill: Wait a second. You're actually gonna have children with this guy?
Caroline: I can't wait.
Bill: [Chuckles] Really? You're excited about this? Do you understand that you will be pushing him to a high school graduation in a wheelchair?
Caroline: He is not that old!
Bill: Caroline, do the math. It's not like he's gonna be tossing the football around with his grandkids.
Katie: I thought Ridge didn't want another family.
Brooke: He doesn't.
Caroline: He didn't, because like I said, he changed his mind.
Brooke: Sometimes men get caught up in their emotions, and I've seen Ridge do that many times.
Katie: So have I.
Bill: All right, I'm gonna give you a little advice here, okay, sweetheart? You're gonna go away. You're gonna take a little vacation. You're gonna clear your mind. You're going to gain some perspective.
Caroline: You guys are such Debbie Downers! Seriously! I'm getting married, and I'm gonna start a family.
Brooke: Ridge told you he could give you a child?
Caroline: Yes, Brooke. Yes. He wants what I want, so yes, we're gonna have kids.
Brooke: Good luck with that. Congratulations. I have a meeting to attend.
Steffy: Okay, we're gonna get real here.
Thomas: It's a shocker. I know. Dad wanted to tell you himself.
Steffy: What's shocking is that you accept this. Dad and Caroline getting married, having a child. I know you, Thomas. This isn't what you want for her.
Brooke: What is going on with you?
Ridge: You heard.
Brooke: That you're marrying Caroline? Are you out of your mind?
Caroline: I didn't expect you to pop champagne bottles, but I didn't...
Katie: Listen, you have to understand --
Caroline: I have to understand what? I'm getting married. This is something that you celebrate. It's not something you grieve.
Bill: We would be celebrating if --
Caroline: If I weren't marrying Ridge. I get that. But I thought that you two were okay.
Bill: Why would you think that? Just because I own some shares in his little dressmaking company doesn't mean I want Ridge walking my niece down the aisle.
Caroline: So, does that mean that you're not gonna be at the wedding?
Bill: I'll tell you what it means --
Katie: If there's a wedding, I mean, when -- when there's a wedding --
Bill: When is it?
Caroline: It's soon.
Bill: Oh, for God...
Caroline: Uncle Bill, you and the boys are the only family that I have in town, and I'm sure that Steffy and Brooke and the rest of the Forresters are not gonna be thrilled about this, so I really just need some support.
Katie: What about Thomas?
Caroline: Yeah, fine. Thomas is supportive. He's just about the only person that is. But I really, really want you guys to be happy for me.
Caroline: Especially you, Uncle Bill. Come on. Could you please just put aside your differences and just do this for me? Please.
Bill: [Sighs] You're like a daughter to me, Caroline. So, of course, I will be there for you. Always.
Thomas: I told you what I want for Caroline.
Steffy: Her happiness. You didn't believe she could have that with Dad.
Thomas: Guess I was wrong.
Steffy: No, no. No. What's really going on here?
Thomas: Nothing, Steff. Let it go.
Steffy: Is that what you've done? 'Cause you were so convinced Dad was all wrong for Caroline.
Thomas: Did you hear about my, uh, my new, big promotion?
Steffy: Yeah, yeah, that you're a part of the design team.
Thomas: Yeah. Dad finally came through.
Steffy: Oh! That's why you're supporting the wedding.
Steffy: You honestly expect me to believe that?
Thomas: Caroline wants a family with Dad. Nobody knows that better than me.
Steffy: And you talked to her about this?
Thomas: Yeah. We're friends. We talk.
Steffy: Did you forget you guys were more than friends at one point?
Thomas: [Sighs] So what?
Steffy: Something is going on here, and you're not telling me. Come on, Thomas. Tell me what it is.
Brooke: What are you thinking?
Ridge: Thinking is overrated, Brooke.
Brooke: Ridge, this is nothing to joke about.
Ridge: Who's joking?
Brooke: You're in denial.
Ridge: In denial about what?
Brooke: Caroline. She's from a different era.
Ridge: That's funny. That's exactly what Mom used to say when you married Dad.
Brooke: [Sighs] What is it that you have in common, really? Besides a physical attraction.
Ridge: This in common.
Brooke: Fine. Okay, the Bohemian artist shacks up with a younger woman. Just leave it at that. You don't have to marry her.
Ridge: Yeah, 'cause that wouldn't be Bohemian, would it?
Brooke: You already have grown children, and one of them still needs your attention.
Ridge: Is that what this is about? I'll always be there for RJ. You know that.
Brooke: Why are you spinning this dream in her head?
Ridge: It's not a dream. We're gonna have a life together.
Brooke: She thinks that includes children.
Ridge: It does.
Brooke: Do I need to point out the obvious?
Ridge: The vasectomy is...
Brooke: Our little secret? Which isn't going to be a secret much longer.
Ridge: I'm gonna have it reversed. You even mentioned that yourself. So that's what I'm doing.
Brooke: Have you talked to your doctor?
Ridge: Not yet.
Brooke: There is no guarantee.
Ridge: I realize that.
Brooke: So have you told Caroline? No. Of course, you haven't.
Ridge: I haven't told her, because I don't want to worry her.
Brooke: Ridge! This has disaster written all over it, and I don't want that for you.
Ridge: And I appreciate that, but you can rest easy. We're gonna have a nice wedding and a beautiful life. This is gonna last.
Brooke: You know how devastating secrets are. You have to tell Caroline about the vasectomy. She has every right to know.
Caroline: Hey. What's going on?
Katie: That was very sweet.
Bill: Oh, yeah. That's me. A real sweetheart.
Katie: [Chuckles] Well, Caroline thinks so, and so do I.
Bill: Then I'm doing something wrong.
Katie: No. You couldn't resist your niece. It was nice. It was nice to watch.
Bill: I said I would support her. I hope I don't regret it.
Katie: You won't.
Bill: Well, you obviously trust that loser more than I do.
Katie: It doesn't matter whether I do or not. I know that you will always be there for Caroline.
Bill: I don't want to have to pick up the pieces, Katie.
Katie: Maybe there won't be any pieces to pick up.
Bill: He better treat her like a princess.
Katie: Like you do?
Bill: No comparison.
Katie: So sexy when you're protective.
Bill: I won't be so sexy if I have to come down on Ridge.
Katie: Hmm. My big, bad Bill.
Steffy: Something is off with you.
Thomas: I've got a lot of design work that I have to finish.
Steffy: No, it's more than that.
Thomas: Look, Steff, stop analyzing. It's annoying.
Steffy: And you look uncomfortable.
Thomas: I'm tired. I just want to get past this.
Steffy: Past what?
Thomas: All this talk about marriage and children, and now we've got a wedding to look forward to.
Steffy: Bad attitude for a best man. What's the real problem?
Thomas: I don't have a problem.
Steffy: It has to do something with Dad and Caroline.
Thomas: Look, a lot has happened between those two in the last couple of days.
Steffy: Yeah, and you're in the middle of it.
Thomas: Can we change the subject?
Steffy: So there is a problem.
Thomas: It's --
Steffy: You do have an issue with the marriage. You do.
Thomas: It's their life, Steff. If they're happy, then I'm fine with that. Now, I have a lot of work to get back to, so if you don't mind...
Caroline: Seems tense in here. Did I walk in on something?
Ridge: Brooke and I were just having a little chat.
Caroline: Ah. Let me guess. About weddings and babies?
Brooke: You wanted children with Rick.
Caroline: Yes, and I'm going to have them with Ridge.
Brooke: Sometimes it's not that simple, Caroline.
Ridge: Brooke, that's enough.
Caroline: Look, Brooke, I don't want to disrespect you. I mean, you obviously have feelings for Ridge still. You have a child together. I mean, but is it so hard to believe that I would want that, too?
Brooke: No, of course not. Under the right conditions.
Caroline: What -- what conditions?
Ridge: Brooke, that's enough. We're engaged. We're gonna get married.
Brooke: But that's not really the issue.
Caroline: What issue?
Ridge: There is no issue. [Sighs] We're gonna have a life together. What are you -- why? Why?
Caroline: And a family.
Ridge: Yes, a family.
Brooke: We'll see.
Caroline: Is it my love for him that you're questioning, or is it his for me?
Brooke: No, this isn't about love.
Caroline: Then what is it about? Because he knows how I feel.
Ridge: And she knows how I feel, so everything is fine.
Brooke: But she doesn't know everything.
Caroline: What is she talking about?
Brooke: Caroline has expectations. She has a right to know.
Caroline: Know what?
Brooke: Tell her, Ridge. If you don't, I will.
