Pam: Oh, my God. Eric! What happened?!
Rick: I'm here. Can you open your eyes?
Thorne: Can you squeeze my hand?
Quinn: No! Wait! Let me through! I need to be with him!
Rick: He's got a pulse. It's weak.
Zende: He's gonna be all right, okay? He has to be.
Maya: Yes, yes. I need an ambulance.
Thomas: Check his breathing!
Maya: It's Forrester creations.
Thorne: Shallow. Very shallow.
Ridge: Come on, dad.
Thomas: Come on.
Maya: He is alive, but he's unconscious. His breathing is shallow.
Quinn: I heard yelling! What did you do?! What did you say?! What -- what's happening?!
Quinn: No! Wait! He's my husband!
Maya: The paramedics are on the way! Is he coming to?
Thorne: No, there's no change. Dad!
Quinn: No! Wait! Eric! I'm here! I'm with you. Help is on the way. Just hang in there. I'm not going anywhere.
Ridge: Pam, get a pillow for him. Where are the paramedics?!
Pam: What if he doesn't make it?
Thomas: Hey, hey. Granddad is strong. He's healthy. He's gonna be fine.
Quinn: Eric, please wake up.
Zende: In here.
Pam: Oh, good. They're here. They're here.
How long has he been like this?
Maya: Less than 15 minutes.
Sir, sir, can you hear me? Can you squeeze my hands? He's breathing, but it's shallow.
Check the blood pressure. BP's 210/100.
Pam: That's high.
Pam: That's high.
Quinn: What does that mean?
Pulse is rapid and thready. Checking blood glucose levels.
Any current medications or allergies?
Quinn: Yes! Yes! He has no allergies, but he's on a blood pressure medication and a blood thinner.
Is he diabetic?
Quinn: No, he's not.
And you said last well time is 15 minutes?
Quinn: Is he gonna be okay? Are you gonna be able to save my husband?
Pam: Stay with us. Stay with us, Eric.
Quinn: No! No.
[Elevator bell dings]
Dr. Andrews: What do we got?
70-year-old male with altered mental status, last seen alert approximately 30 minutes ago.
Patient presented with elevated BP 210/100, no signs of trauma.
Heart rate and respiration's within normal limits.
Dr. Andrews: Blood glucose?
Rick: Any change since the ambulance?
Steffy: No, no, no, no.
Dr. Andrews: Are you the family?
Dr. Andrews: Okay, I need you to stay here. I will update you. Let's go.
Ridge: It's okay.
Thorne: He's got to make it. He's got to make it.
Pam: Maybe I'll make some coffee?
Zende: You don't have to do that, pam.
Pam: Maybe it'll make me feel useful.
Maya: Waiting's hard, huh?
Thomas: Yeah, I've never been good at this.
Zende: I mean, I still can't get the visual out of my head, granddad just...collapsed.
Wyatt: What happened? When mom and I came in, he was on the ground. I mean, I-I know that he called the meeting to confront the family, but we heard yelling and we ran over here. How did he end up on the ground?
Maya: He was really upset about the boycott.
Pam: He called it a betrayal. I've known Eric a long time. I have never seen him that hurt.
Thomas: Or so angry at dad. That's when he started to lose it.
Zende: Granddad knew or figured out it was ridge's idea, and they went at it.
Maya: Ridge tried to explain that the family was just trying to help him, but Eric wasn't having it.
Zende: All of a sudden, granddad just changed. You know, he started stuttering. He...glazed over, and that was it. Collapsed.
Maya: He was right, you know. He called us out, one by one, and every word he said was true. What we did was awful. It was inexcusable. Eric is one of the kindest people I know, the most generous. He deserved better from all of us.
Zende: We're his family, and we let him down.
Thomas: On one of the most important days of his life.
Pam: I was at the house. Eric looked so happy. You know, making everything special and perfect for his wedding. [Sighs] And he was so grateful to me and to Charlie for just being there. And then what'd I do? I left. I just walked out. [Sighs] That's how I repay him?
Wyatt: Yeah, but look, no one was trying to hurt him. You guys were protesting against my mother, trying to make a point.
Maya: Didn't work out so well, did it?
Dr. Andrews: Signs of disc swelling.
I'll order a cranial ct immediately.
Dr. Andrews: Mr. Forrester, can you hear me? Mr. Forrester? Mr. Forrester, can you hear me?
Ridge: How is this even possible?
Steffy: [Voice breaking] Grandfather falling like that, it's like [Sniffles] I wish we could just go back and handle everything differently.
Ridge: Differently how? We had to make some drastic choices. We had to keep Quinn away from dad.
Steffy: I know what our intentions were, but now he's in that room, and we don't even know what happened to him.
Thorne: We never should have listened to ridge. Boycotting dad's wedding? It was cruel, rick, no matter who he was getting married to.
Rick: I know. I know, Thorne. After everything dad's done for us, I feel so ashamed.
Thorne: Well, you know, there's no way we could have predicted this outcome. [Sighs] I'm not making excuses, but... hell, maybe I am. I just... I feel so guilty.
Ridge: How is he?
He's still unconscious. We're transporting him to imaging for a ct scan. Doctor will know more after that.
Quinn: Hey, where is Eric? Is he awake? What did the doctor say? Would you just answer me?! He's my husband!
Ridge: No change. Still unconscious.
Quinn: Is -- is he in there?
[Cell phone chimes]
Pam: What'd Steffy say?
Thomas: Nothing new yet. Still waiting on results. What were we thinking, boycotting granddad's wedding? That it wouldn't hurt him?
Zende: We were trying to protect him.
Wyatt: From a woman who loves him very much. When no one showed up to the wedding, she gave him an out. She told him not to marry her. She didn't want to be the reason why Eric lost his family, but he wouldn't take it. He wouldn't have that. I should have been there.
Maya: You were in a tough spot, Wyatt. You're caught between your wife and your mother.
Wyatt: Yeah, but today of all days? I should have shown up for her. Not that it would have made a difference to what happened to Eric, but I just... I would...feel better about myself.
Zende: Guess we could all use a little bit of that, right?
Pam: I haven't always been as stable as I am now, but no matter how nutty I got, Eric never held it against me. He always stood by me. He always forgave me. And now look what I went and did to him.
Thomas: Hey. We're all at fault here.
Maya: When Eric learned about my past, he didn't even blink. I'm sure he had his initial reaction, but... by the time he got to me, there was nothing but acceptance and love in his eyes. Why couldn't I give him the same thing?
Zende: Speaking of acceptance, you know, when my parents adopted me, granddad invited me in with open arms. Immediate family. No questions. Same thing when I moved out to L.A. Granddad opened his heart to me, his home. Hell, he gave me a position at Forrester. And all he's ever wanted from me was to be at his wedding. What kind of person am I?
Thomas: Granddad saw the best in all of us. He taught me how to be a better man... how to be a better father to my son. And we had a chance to show him a little gratitude. And I missed it.
Pam: We went too far. He was so hurt. Felt so betrayed. We literally broke his heart.
Thomas: And now he could be fighting for his life.
Thorne: [Sighs] God. Man, he's been gone awhile.
Steffy: How -- how is this even happening? Is there a medical issue I didn't know about?
Ridge: If there is, I didn't know about it, either.
Rick: I thought dad was in great shape.
Thorne: This isn't about a preexisting condition. This is about us hurting dad in a place so deep that his body couldn't take it anymore.
Ridge: Oh, come on.
Thorne: This is on us, guys. Why? Why didn't I just go to the wedding, stand up for him, be his best man instead of taking a stand against him?
Rick: I've never seen dad that angry. And to think that we caused this.
Ridge: We didn't cause this.
Rick: How can you say that?
Ridge: Because we were trying to protect him from this.
Steffy: He has to be okay. I couldn't live with myself --
Ridge: Hey, don't do that. It's gonna be fine.
Quinn: How do you know? How do you know Eric is gonna be fine? Did the doctor say something?
Quinn: Did he have a heart attack or -- or a stroke? You can't keep shutting me out like this. I have a right to know what's going on!
Thorne: We don't know anything, Quinn, okay? All we know is that none of us did right by my father.
Ridge: You least of all.
Quinn: Excuse me?
Ridge: You're to blame for this. You put our family in this situation.
Quinn: Oh, Eric!
Quinn: Finally. How -- how is he?
Rick: Is he still unconscious?
Ridge: And what does that mean?
The doctor will be able to tell you more shortly.
Steffy: Is he okay? Can we see him?
Yes. He's stable for now. But family only, though. We need to limit the number of people in the room.
Quinn: Wait. What are you doing?
Ridge: You're not going in.
Quinn: Of course, I am. Eric's my husband. He needs me. I need to see him.
Ridge: I won't allow it.
Quinn: You can't be serious.
Ridge: You're not going in.
Maya: Okay, it's a text from rick. He says Eric is still unconscious, but they're starting to let family in.
Zende: Maybe he'll feel the energy and wake up.
Thomas: God, I hope so. I'm not afraid to admit it. I'm a little bit scared right now.
Wyatt: It's a sobering day for all of us.
Pam: When he just collapsed like that...
Maya: It was frightening.
Thomas: We're all gonna have different opinions. All families do. But nothing is worth upsetting granddad this much.
Zende: Just hope he can forgive us once he's better.
Wyatt: I like what you just said there. Once he's better. That's what we need to do. We need to stay positive. We need to will Eric back to consciousness and health.
Pam: A prayer wouldn't hurt. [Sighs] Dear God, please hold Eric in your healing hands. We love him. You gave him to us to head this family. We still need him, his protection and his guidance, and we need to show him the same unconditional love that he has shown to each one of us every single day. Please, God. Eric's not done here yet. Please don't take him away. Amen.
Thorne: [Sniffles] Hey, dad. [Voice breaking] I am so... I'm so sorry. It was never [Sniffles] -- It was never -- in my life -- my intention to ever hurt you, dad. We were just looking out for you. At least that's what we thought. I just never realized it. No. There's no excuses. Our behavior was appalling, and you have every right to be angry, and you can be angry again, Dad. I'm happy to take it. Please. I need you to come back to us, dad, okay? Please. We're not a family without you. [Sniffles]
Rick: Dad? Can you hear me? Can you hear how sorry I am? [Sighs] You have defended me and supported me and stood by me even when I was dead wrong. Dad, I'm so ashamed of myself for even considering trying to hurt you. Come on, dad! Fight back like the warrior I know you are! Come on. Come back to us. I'm here. Everyone's here. The whole family's here.
Quinn: I will not be kept away from my husband.
Ridge: We're gonna handle this as a family.
Quinn: You know what? You may not be happy about it, but I am Eric's wife. I am family!
Ridge: You're the reason that he's in that bed.
Quinn: You -- you keep saying that, but you're the ones who broke his heart! You're the ones who devastated him and betrayed him! That was all of you!
Steffy: We were protecting him!
Mr. Forrester, is there a problem I can help you with?
Quinn: Yeah, can you ask this man to move so I can go see my husband?
Ridge: This woman is not allowed anywhere near my father. Keep her out of that room, okay?
Quinn: No. No!
I see this kind of thing with families in crisis. Maybe you should just wait.
Rick: I was just gonna come get you guys. The doctor's here.
Steffy: Is he okay? What happened?
Dr. Andrews: Mr. Forrester had a brain hemorrhage.
Steffy: Oh, my God.
Ridge: He's gonna be all right?
Dr. Andrews: After the ct scan, we performed a procedure to stop the bleeding. We're monitoring his response. Can you tell me what led up to his collapse?
Steffy: He got very upset.
Rick: Did we cause this?
Thorne: Of course we did.
Dr. Andrews: A weakened blood vessel caused it.
Steffy: So is he gonna be okay?
Dr. Andrews: Can't make any predictions just yet.
Thorne: [Sighs] I don't like the sound of that.
Ridge: No one likes the sound of it. But give us something. Is this -- he's -- he's gonna pull through. He's gonna be all right. Someone keep this woman out of this room.
Quinn: I'm not letting you keep me away from my husband any longer. Hey. Hey, Eric. It's me. I'm here. What's going on? What is he still unconscious? [Sighs] Eric? Hey. [Sniffles] Hey, honey. Can you open your eyes? Can you look at me? Hey. Here. Here. Squeeze my hand. Squeeze my hand, sweetie. Just -- just anything to let me know that you're gonna be okay. What's happening? He wasn't like this when he left the house this morning. What's going on?! What happened to my husband?!
