Proofread By Nikky
Caroline: You gonna be gone long?
Ridge: No. I want to be here with you and my Douglas, but I am CEO of this company. It took a long time to get there, and I think if I don't show up, Rick is gonna try to pick up the slack, and I can't have that.
Ridge: Bye. Can I get you anything while I'm out?
Caroline: No, I have everything I need right here.
Ridge: You haven't put that kid down since he was born.
Caroline: When he's like 6.
Ridge: Hi. Look at me. It's my life. I'm married to the most beautiful woman in the world, I've got this little guy, and I'm living in my family home. Our future starts today.
Caroline: It's incredible.
Rick: So, you were walking past a storefront and you just couldn't help yourself?
Maya: Okay, okay. But what would you do... if you saw these?
Maya: Come on.
Rick: Okay. That's really cute, actually.
Maya: I know they are! And then -- and then, of course, if you saw this?
Maya: Come on.
Rick: We're almost there.
Maya: I know. We're gonna meet our baby.
Rick: Not that anybody cares. Not after Ridge just spawned off his next child.
Maya: Oh, come on. That's not true. There are plenty of people who are over-the-moon for us. And most importantly, we have our inner circle. Of course, Zende used to be on that list.
Rick: How is Nicole doing? She's been so stoic since the breakup.
Maya: Yeah, that's her defense mechanism, but...
Rick: I just wish we could do something to help.
Maya: Only Zende has that power. If he could just get over his aversion to Nicole being pregnant and go back to her.
Sasha: So, are we gonna talk about it or just keep pretending it didn't happen?
Zende: I'm not pretending anything. Look, I own up to what happened between us.
Sasha: Okay. Acknowledged is good. So, now what?
Zende: We see where it goes. Just please -- don't say anything to Nicole or anyone else.
Sasha: [Sighs] You don't have to worry about me. There's nobody better at keeping big, honking secrets than me.
Nicole: Hey. Zende around?
Sasha: Uh, no, actually, you just missed him.
Nicole: Good. You and I need to talk.
Sasha: Is everything okay?
Nicole: I know what you've been hiding.
Zende: Hey. Maya. I'm, uh... I'm looking for Nicole.
Maya: Uh, yeah, I just got here. I haven't seen her.
Zende: Well, if you do, can you tell her to find me?
Maya: Sure. Hey, Zende. Hold on. I think we should talk.
Zende: I'm sure I can guess why.
Maya: I can't believe you dumped my sister. After everything we've been through.
Zende: But, see... it's that journey so far that's made me realize that I can't take the ride. Look, it's nothing personal against you or Rick. I'm happy you're able to have your baby. Happy Nicole is able to make it happen. It's just not for me.
Maya: Well, you are entitled to your feelings. But I have to say I'm disappointed. What Nicole is doing is extraordinary, and I -- Nicole thought that you supported her.
Sasha: Why would you think I'm hiding something?
Nicole: Because you're my best friend, and I know how you work. So let's clear the air.
Sasha: Okay. I'd be game if I had any idea what you were talking about.
Nicole: I betrayed our friendship -- going behind your back, using my influence with Rick to get you fired. It was wrong. And you would never do anything underhanded like that to me. So you can stop protecting me from your justifiable anger. I can take it.
Sasha: You apologized, and I got my job back. You don't have to be perfect, Nicole. I love you anyway.
Nicole: I don't know what I'd do without you. Especially now.
Sasha: Hey. Hey, what's going on?
Nicole: I just miss Zende.
Pam: How could you tear yourself away from that precious little baby?
Ridge: Well, Pam, it involved very large pliers.
Ridge: I'm just here to grab a couple of things and to check in. About it. I need this.
Eric: He's quite the little man. I got to tell you.
Eric: You did good, Ridge. You made a beautiful new family.
Ridge: Can I tell you something? If you told me two years ago I was gonna be this happy, I wouldn't have believed you.
Eric: I wish Stephanie was here to witness this.
Ridge: Me, too, Dad. I miss her every day. Especially now with this little boy squeaking all over the house. And that is why Caroline and I have decided to make her a permanent part of his life.
Eric: Meaning what?
Ridge: He has a name now. Douglas.
Pam: Oh. That's perfect.
Eric: Stephanie would be so proud.
Ridge: Oh, Dad.
Eric: You were more important to her than anybody else. It's only fitting that your boy would carry her name.
Caroline: You don't care yet, but we have a design house called Forrester Creations, and it's your birthright. But don't expect an easy time there if you choose that path, 'cause your daddy is kind of a tough manager.
Thomas: I can vouch for that.
Thomas: Hey, Douglas. Hi. How are you?
Zende: Look, Maya. I did support Nicole. But there's this concept and then there's reality, and sometimes they don't sync up. But I was straight with Nicole about how I felt the whole time.
Maya: I knew you guys had to take breaks and process things, but to break up with her completely, Zende? I just didn't anticipate that.
Zende: Would you have respected me more if I would have faked it?
Maya: I'm not saying that.
Zende: I couldn't, Maya. Knowing my girl had another man's baby inside of her -- my uncle's. You know, I try to wrap my brain around it. It just doesn't --
Zende: That doesn't mean I stopped caring about her. I have tried texting her. Calling her. She won't talk to me.
Maya: Are you surprised? She's too hurt, Zende.
Nicole: There's this big void where Zende used to be, and... I'm not quite sure how to fill it.
Sasha: I hate seeing you so sad.
Nicole: I lost my first love. But hey. At least I got to experience it with the most incredible guy that I've ever known. So no matter how it turned out, I am glad that I got to be with Zende.
Sasha: He really is something special.
Nicole: [Chuckles] Right. Strong, but gentle. Sensitive and warm. Funny. [Chuckles] He always made me feel good about myself.
Sasha: And I hope that you haven't lost that just because you're not together anymore.
Nicole: No. I'm proud of what I'm doing for my sister. I just wish Zende could have hung in there a little longer.
Sasha: I am so sorry.
Nicole: I know.
Sasha: No, you don't.
Rick: Well, what are we celebrating? Wait, let me take a wild guess. Ridge.
Eric: Join us.
Rick: I'll have to pass, but congratulations are in order. You're a father. Again.
Ridge: It's extraordinary.
Rick: I could imagine. At least for now, anyways.
Pam: Hey, Rick. Your new little nephew has a name now, you know?
Ridge: Douglas Forrester.
Rick: [Laughs] That goes perfect with the portrait about the fireplace.
Rick: I'm sure Stephanie would be pleased.
Pam: Well, I know I am.
Ridge: How's Nicole?
Rick: Thanks for remembering. The pregnancy is on course. No problems.
Eric: Won't be long before there's another one to carry on our legacy.
Rick: It's been a great year for new Forresters. Caroline has the child that she's always wanted with the man that she loves. You know, on second thought, that does call for a toast.
Thomas: I-I didn't meant to intrude. I was just on my way to the office. I wanted to grab a bite.
Caroline: Hey, you don't have to explain your movements. You live here, too.
Thomas: He blows me away every time I see him.
Caroline: I know. Same here. Except my seeing him is constant, you know?
Caroline: And I've just been staring at him since he was born.
Thomas: Well, one thing's for sure -- he's surrounded by love. I know that much. Caroline, would you mind if... I held him?
Rick: I really am happy for you and Caroline. You have a son, dad has a grandson, I have a new nephew. That's important. Momentous, even. Congratulations again.
Ridge: I appreciate it. Thank you.
Rick: Mm. And Douglas. That's A... that's a fine name.
Pam: I think I'm gonna cry. Oh! [Laughs] You men certainly are well-trained.
Eric: By the best.
Ridge: Well, on that note, I'm gonna head home to my young wife and kid. I don't want to be away too long.
Thomas: I don't know a lot about holding babies. I haven't done it much, but I promise I will never drop him.
Caroline: [Chuckles] Nah, I'm not worried. It's really easy.
Caroline: Yeah. Okay, so the main thing is you just have to make sure you support his little head.
Caroline: So just put his head in, like, the crook right there. Got him?
Thomas: Hi. Got it.
Caroline: Yeah? And so I'm just gonna shift him a little bit.
Thomas: Hey. Hi.
Caroline: And that's it. It's pretty easy, huh?
Nicole: Of course I know you're sorry. When I hurt, you hurt.
Zende: I've been looking for you.
Nicole: Here I am.
Zende: You didn't get any of my text messages?
Nicole: I saw that they were there.
Zende: We need to talk.
Sasha: I'm gonna let you two have this, okay, so... I love you, girl. Never forget that.
Nicole: [Sighs] So... what did you want to say?
Zende: I'm sorry I hurt you. That's why you've been avoiding me, right? Nicole.
Caroline: He really won't break.
Thomas: I am so terrified of doing something wrong.
Caroline: No, you're fine. You're fine. Just, like, relax a little bit. Take a deep breath. [Laughs] And, um, you know, try to loosen your arms a little bit and just kind of let him sink in. Just accept his weight, you know?
Thomas: God. Caroline, he is a game-changer.
Caroline: For all of us.
Sasha: Oh, sorry. I didn't know anyone was in here.
Maya: It's no problem. You need something?
Sasha: Just a place to hang for a little bit. Nic and I were talking when Zende came in. He wanted some time alone with her.
Maya: That could be good. I spoke to Zende earlier. I just -- I hope I made him realize what an awe-inspiring thing Nicole is doing. And that she deserves to be supported.
Rick: I mean, it's not that Zende doesn't love Nicole. He's just having a hard time with the pregnancy.
Maya: You know, if they can just stay open to each other, maybe they'll get back together after Nicole delivers.
Sasha: Not to be the pessimist, but... I seriously doubt that.
Nicole: You can't even be close to me. Do you know how much that hurts?
Zende: I didn't mean to react like that, okay? It just happened.
Nicole: Because you're so disgusted by me, you can't even pretend you're not.
Zende: No. It's not you, Nicole, all right? And I'm not disgusted. It's the situation. It's too much for me to handle.
Nicole: Did you really try?
Zende: Oh, come on. Nicole, you know I did.
Nicole: No, I mean, really. Because as soon as I started showing, you started pulling back, like your mind was already closed to it.
Zende: If I did, I -- I didn't know it.
Nicole: I thought that you understood this is hard for me, too. That I had this one chance to do something wonderful for my sister, and I needed to take it no matter what it cost, and... I just thought you understood.
Thomas: Hey, Dad. Check it out. I'm holding my little brother for the first time.
Ridge: You're doing a great job.
Thomas: Thank you. What do you think, huh, Douglas? You think I'm doing all right? 'Cause it feels right to me.
Ridge: I hate to pull rank, but I've really got to hold my son for a minute.
Thomas: Oh, absolutely.
Caroline: I just -- remember. Support his head when you hand him --
Thomas: Yeah. Got it.
Ridge: Hi. Yes. There you are. What you doing? What are you doing? Yeah. Hi, my sweet boy. Hey.
Thomas: You know, one day I'll have this -- an amazing wife and a beautiful child. Thank you for letting me spend some time with him.
Caroline: Oh, yeah. You bet.
Thomas: All right. You guys have fun with your miracle.
Ridge: What was that look?
Caroline: Um... it's freaking out. [Laughs] That look is me freaking out about Thomas and watching him hold...
Ridge: Our boy? It's who this is. And Thomas is gonna be here. They're gonna have a relationship. So you can't do that. You can't freak out every time he walks into a room.
Caroline: I know, but...
Ridge: What? Our boy. Our blessing. We're his parents.
Caroline: I know. It's just... watching Thomas hold him, he already loves him so much and you just think --
Ridge: Of course, he does. He's his brother. And what is that -- what are you doing? You trying to justify telling him what he could never know, what no one can ever know? Is that what you want to do? We'll lose everything. And I don't care about my career or my reputation. We'll lose each other. We'll lose our family. This is what we set up, and this is how it's gonna be. Not Thomas. No one. No one's ever gonna know this is... this is our boy.
