Proofread By Gisele
Bill: You seem to be doing better.
Katie: What, with the kissing? I hope so.
Bill: Your kissing's always perfect. You know what I mean.
Katie: I know what you mean.
Bill: I'm proud of you.
Katie: I'm proud of me, too. I feel good, you know? And I don't want to risk losing you and our family and even my sister.
Bill: Hmm. I'm glad you two are trying to smooth things over.
Katie: Yeah. We're working on it. In fact, I was thinking about going over to Forrester and seeing if she wants to have lunch or something.
Bill: Hey, you know, speaking of Forrester, I can't believe that place hasn't collapsed yet with a dressmaker as CEO.
Katie: [Chuckles] Come on, Bill.
Bill: No, I'm serious, Katie. For that dress farm to ever see its full potential and for me to get full value out of my 12.5% ownership... I have to take control away from Ridge.
Ridge: I'm in charge while Mommy's at yoga. That's understood, right? It is. Yeah, he gets it. He knows I'm in charge. Very good.
Brooke: Enjoy it while it lasts.
Ridge: Savoring every minute. Yes, I am.
Brooke: He is adorable. I'm so happy for you and Caroline.
Ridge: Yeah. Blessed to have him in our lives.
Thomas: Hey. Just on my way to work. Hi.
Brooke: I thought you were on your way to Shanghai.
Thomas: Changed my mind. I'm not going anywhere.
Vivienne: I was hoping you'd bring the baby.
Maya: Lizzy was sleeping, and we didn't want to wake her.
Rick: Our nanny's watching her while we're gone.
Vivienne: Oh. You should have asked Sasha, so she would understand what it takes.
Rick: We don't know for sure that she's pregnant.
Vivienne: Lord, I hope not.
Nicole: Sorry we're late.
Maya: Hey. Hey.
Zende: What's up?
Maya: So, what did the results say?
Nicole: Sasha is not pregnant.
Vivienne: Ohh! [Chuckles]
Julius: Sasha. You wanted to see me?
Sasha: Dad, I am tired of all the lies. So you might as well know the truth, too. There's no baby.
Maya: Sasha's not pregnant?
Nicole: Nope. No baby.
Maya: Nicole, I am so happy.
Rick: Congratulations, man.
Zende: Thank you, man.
Maya: Wait. So, that means Sasha was lying.
Nicole: The test was negative.
Zende: No, actually. The test was positive.
Julius: You made it all up?
Sasha: I'm not proud of myself.
Julius: Does Zende know?
Sasha: God, I couldn't keep lying to him... not after all the lies you made me say my whole life. It was wrong, and I couldn't do that to him. I couldn't do that to my sister.
Justin: Saw Katie on the way out. Ahh. It's good to have the girl back in the office again. Haven't seen much of her lately.
Bill: Yeah. She's been going through kind of a rough patch.
Justin: Oh, I'm sorry to hear that.
Bill: Well, I'm hoping it's behind us now.
Justin: Yeah, well, whatever it is, Katie's resilient. She'll beat it.
Bill: Yeah, she will.
Justin: So, what's this about Forrester Creations?
Bill: Ridge ought to stick to using a needle and thread. He's nothing more than a glorified tailor masquerading as CEO. I want him out.
Pam: I haven't seen Brooke this morning. I don't think she's come in yet.
Katie: Okay. Well, I'll wait.
Pam: Let me know if you need anything.
Katie: Thank you.
Pam: All right. Hello, Thomas.
Thomas: Hey. How's it going?
Thomas: Okay. Good. Hey, if you're looking for Brooke, she's back at the house with Dad and the baby.
Katie: Oh. Yeah. Um...so, Ridge has been spending an awful lot of time with Douglas these days, huh?
Katie: Must be hard for you.
Thomas: Why would that be hard?
Katie: Uh... well, um, maybe because Douglas isn't Ridge's son. He's yours.
Justin: Haven't brought up Forrester Creations in a while.
Bill: That doesn't mean it hasn't been on my mind, especially since that poser started running the place.
Justin: You're a minority shareholder.
Bill: And I want to protect my investment -- take that company out of Ridge's hands.
Ridge: Here you go -- honey and cream in your coffee. Who does that? It's just weird.
Brooke: Thank you! [Chuckles] It's nice that you're getting to spend so much time with Douglas. Almost like you don't want to let him out of your sight. Sweet.
Ridge: It is sweet.
Ridge: I missed so much time with Thomas and the twins and RJ being at boarding school, and just --
Brooke: So now you want to experience fatherhood -- diaper changes, late-night feedings, everything a father should be doing.
Ridge: Yeah. Well, to be fair, Caroline does most of that.
Brooke: Mothers usually do. But it's good that Thomas is here, living at home. Extra set of hands never hurts. He seems totally smitten with Douglas. Maybe that's why he's not going to Shanghai.
Thomas: Douglas is my brother. He's my -- my dad's son.
Katie: I know the truth. You don't have to pretend with me.
Thomas: I'm not pretending, Katie. Douglas isn't my son.
Katie: I know all about that night with Caroline, and I know that it is impossible for Ridge to father any more children, and I know that Douglas is yours. Caroline admitted it to me. And Ridge knows that I know. In fact, I'm the one who insisted that he tell you.
Julius: So, does Nicole know the truth?
Sasha: Yeah. And she probably hates me.
Julius: Well, can you blame her? I mean, it's a pretty big thing to be lying about, saying that you're pregnant with her boyfriend's baby.
Sasha: Yeah, and I'm sure Zende wants nothing to do with me, either. What we -- what we had was meaningful. It was special. And I ruined that, too.
Julius: I'm sure that, uh -- I'm sure that Zende really cared about you, enjoyed your company, but let's be honest -- even though they were separated, they never stopped loving each other.
Sasha: But I loved him. And I really believe that he could love me, too. You know, he was so kind. He was affectionate. And I've never had a man treat me that way before.
Julius: What is all this?
Sasha: I'm going back to Chicago.
Zende: Like I said, the photographer's wife was very pregnant.
Maya: So that's how she got the test to turn positive.
Vivienne: Well, how did you find out the truth?
Zende: Sasha told me.
Nicole: She confessed?
Zende: She started to regret trapping me. She said she wasn't about to be that desperate... and that she couldn't do that to you. She didn't want to hurt you. I guess she deserves some credit for that.
Nicole: I wouldn't give her credit for anything. There's no way I could ever forgive her.
Vivienne: I'm so glad the truth finally came out.
Maya: I knew Sasha was lying.
Rick: Well, at least she was honest. Her conscience got the better of her.
Vivienne: Rick is right. Let us focus on the blessings. Zende, you are free from Sasha. You're no longer tied to her. And you kids can be together again.
Maya: We are thrilled for you.
Rick: We've been hoping this would happen for a while now.
Nicole: You and me both.
Vivienne: My girls happy and healthy and right where they're supposed to be. Ohh. You all warm a mommy's heart. Hmm?
Nicole: Now it's time to take care of you...
Nicole: ...And get you where you need to be.
Maya: That's right. We're here to support you, Mama.
Vivienne: Yeah. What your father did did rock my world, keeping that poor girl a secret, pretending she wasn't his daughter.
Nicole: Mom, have you talked to him since the hospital?
Vivienne: No. He called me a few times -- you know, left some messages -- but... I don't want to talk to him. It's still too painful. I'm still upset.
[Cell phone rings]
Maya: Hey. What's up?
Julius: I want to get us all together. I think you'll agree that our family needs help.
Maya: I think you're right. Come to the motel. We're all here.
Julius: I'm on my way.
Justin: So, got a plan?
Bill: We need something solid, something concrete to push Ridge out of the CEO position. Start digging.
Justin: All right. I'm on it.
Bill: Are you? Are you on it, Justin? Because last time I gave you an assignment --
Justin: Last time... I gave Liam the best counsel, considering the defense and the lack of --
Bill: Lack? Lack? The only thing lacking is Quinn behind bars, so when I tell you to do a job...
Justin: I do it -- no questions asked -- and I did. I have Liam's best interests in mind. Now if you let me do this job you just gave me.
Bill: Fine. In the meantime, I'm going to pay Ridge a visit at the office, start rattling that cage.
Ridge: He's a smart kid. Always knows when there's a pretty girl in the house.
Brooke: [Laughs] A ladies' man. Takes after his father.
Ridge: We will take that as a compliment. Yeah.
Brooke: So sweet. The way you cherish him.
Ridge: How can you not? Look at his face.
Brooke: He looks like you.
Ridge: He has Caroline's smile.
Brooke: It wasn't long ago that you were holding R.J. like this - Thomas, even. Boy, they grow up so, fast, don't they? Hey. Before you know it, it's gonna be Thomas' turn to be a father.
Thomas: You told my dad to tell me?
Katie: I just encouraged him to be honest.
Thomas: Who else knows? Have you told anybody else?
Katie: No, no. Just me.
Thomas: Good. I'd like to keep it that way.
Katie: I just thought you had a right to know. And I think, ultimately, it will be the best thing for you and for Caroline and Douglas, obviously. I mean, keeping a secret like that is -- [Sighs]
Thomas: Yeah. Well, I would have figured it out sooner or later. I guess my dad thinks I'm pretty dumb. I'm smarter than he realizes.
Katie: So, now that you know the truth... what are you gonna do about it?
Rick: Well, Ridge wasn't in the parking lot when we pulled in -- surprise, surprise.
Zende: Well, he was probably at home with his newborn.
Rick: Well, Zende, I get it. He wants to spend time with his son, but he never comes in to work anymore. How can you be CEO when you can't even handle the job?
Zende: Well, it's a good thing we're out here working out, because you definitely have some stress to release.
Rick: Oh, man, trust me -- I'd rather be home with Maya. She said she needed some time alone with her mom and Nicole. From what I gather, it seems like she's up to something.
Nicole: Let's do a spa day -- get our nails done.
Vivienne: Oh. I won't say no to that.
Nicole: Cool. I'll make us appointments.
[Knock on door]
Maya: Thank you for coming.
Vivienne: Julius, what are you doing here?
Nicole: And why is Sasha with you?
Maya: Well, Daddy called a family meeting. I think we should hear him out.
Julius: This won't take long. I promise. One of the things that Vivienne and I have always been very proud of -- in fact, fiercely protective of -- is our family being united. And now we're separated. My daughters are at odds, and I've lost my wife. And I take full responsibility. I blew it. I was stubborn and closed-minded. I kept secrets that caused a lot of pain. But I want you guys to try to understand that everything that I did, I believed that I was doing it for the good of the family! I thought I was doing what was best! But I hurt you all. Sasha... I'm sorry. You were a young and innocent child who -- who deserved much more than you got. You guys are my family. And I'm begging you for forgiveness. Now, you may not think that I deserve it... but I would ask you to look around this room. This is our family. You three are sisters, and while far from perfect, I'm your father. Viv... you and I have been married for over 30 years... and I love you. And I can't fathom... living without you. I'm asking you, please... can you forgive me?
Ridge: I'm a lucky man. I didn't expect to be a father again, and then this one showed up.
Ridge: Changed everything. Brought so much joy to our lives.
Brooke: He was meant to be.
Ridge: He's precious.
Ridge: Don't know what I'd do without him. Yeah.
Thomas: So -- so, Dad finally told you that he wasn't Douglas' father?
Katie: Well, yes, but that was after Caroline admitted it to me, thinking that I already knew.
Thomas: Dad...would never had admitted anything had you not confronted him about this. He would have let me go my whole life thinking that I was Douglas' brother. I want to do what's best for Douglas. But Dad and Caroline are married. They're a family. I have to respect that. The whole world thinks that. But he's my son. He's my son. He's my boy. I-I-I can't -- I can't be with him if I'm in Shanghai.
Thomas: Oh, you didn't hear?
Thomas: Dad tried to ship me off to Shanghai -- said we could expand the family business in the Asian markets. It'd be a tremendous career opportunity for me. Sure. Once I found out the truth, there's -- there's no way I was gonna leave my boy.
Bill: Can't put anything over on you.
Pam: [Laughing] No.
Bill: Ridge in there?
Pam: No, but your wife and Thomas are. No, Rich! Richard, you can't -- those have to go alteration before they're shipped out. I tell you that all the time, but you...
Thomas: I'm done letting my dad dictate my whole life. I mean, Dad means well. But he ends up controlling everybody else's life.
Katie: Well, now you know the truth.
Thomas: Thanks to you.
Katie: Listen, the only people who know about this are you, Caroline, Ridge, and me. That's it. I just -- I couldn't let Ridge keep a secret like this.
