B&B Update Tuesday 5/16/00
Becky asks CJ what he is doing? CJ tells her he is asking her to marry him, he wants to spend the rest of her life with him. Becky says they never really talked about it. CJ says they have both thought about it. Becky says she has fantasized about it, but it would be “someday.” CJ says “Not someday, now.” Becky asks what happened to him? CJ says she happened to him, he couldn’t imagine his life without her. Becky says he is sweet, she isn’t going anywhere. Besides he is in school and she has a baby. She knows he is not ready for this and wants to know what is going on? She wants CJ to tell her the truth.
Doctor Palmer’s Office
Morgan is waiting for the Doctor. Taylor arrives. Morgan asks where Ridge is? Taylor tells her he is parking the car and will be up in a few minutes. Taylor asks Morgan if she told the doctor about what happened last time? Morgan says she told him she had a bad experience with a previous doctor but didn’t go into detail. Taylor is concerned it will happen again. Morgan assures her, it won’t, and she is in control. Morgan shows Taylor the description of the “donor.” He is 6’ 3”, brown hair, athletic, hazel brown eyes. Taylor says looking at this you could be describing my husband. (Ridge comes into the office.)
Amber wants to call Becky to see what is happening. She picks up the phone but Eric takes it away from her. Sally says they know what is happening. A young woman, whom her son loves very much, is being told she is dying. Sally doesn’t know how CJ will get through it.
Becky “What’s really going on?” CJ “Nothing, I am serious about this.” Becky says marriage is a big step, has he thought about it? CJ says he doesn’t need to think about it. He remembers their first kiss, how she knew it was “right” between them. He says she has to trust in him and in “us.” She asks why this is suddenly so important to him? CJ says in Santa Barbara, he told her he would show her how important she was to him, well this is it. Becky asks why he couldn’t just send flowers? “You want me to be your wife?” “Why?” CJ “I love you Becky.” “I want to take are of you for the rest of your life.” “Why not show the world, unless you don’t feel the same way?” Becky “It’s not that, I know you love me.” (Becky hugs CJ.) Becky can’t believe she is considering this. She knows his mother will be very upset, since she promised not to be a distraction to his studies. “Besides, we have all the time in the world.” CJ “You see, that’s just it, we don’t!” (Becky stares at CJ.) Becky “CJ.” Becky “We don’t have the time.” CJ says no one knows how much time they have, no one does. He wants to spend it with her. She asks what happens when reality sets in? He says he wants to take care of her, she won’t be alone. (She kisses him, he holds her.)
Becky says CJ made her cry. CJ says, “You want this as much as I do.” Becky “We should wait.” CJ says, “No, we shouldn’t.” He wants her to imagine it is their wedding day, they are out on the dance floor, having their first dance as husband and wife. Everyone they love and care about is there and is happy for us. Becky suggests getting engaged? CJ says no she isn’t just his girlfriend or his fiancée, she means more to him than that. What they have will last forever. Becky says that was her wish at the well, she asked that what they have last forever. He says her wish is coming true. CJ “Say that you will marry me Becky.” Becky “Yes.” (She hugs him and cries in his arms.) CJ “Oh Becky, I love you so much.” (Kisses her.) (Holds her.)
Doctor Palmer’s Office
Ridge picks up the folder with the “father’s details” to look at it, but Morgan takes it away. She says it is embarrassing making a decision based on a questionnaire. Taylor asks what he does for a living? Morgan says he is a designer…a graphic designer. He also composes music. She says if you were to adopt a child you would know even less then that. Morgan assures them this is what she wants. Morgan thanks them both for coming. She knows they think she is making a mistake. Taylor says it isn’t that, it’s just happened so quickly. Morgan says they are just different people. Taylor says they are not that different, she knows what it is like to want a child, to wait to hold it in your arms. (The Doctor comes in). The Doctor tells Morgan they are ready for her. Taylor says she doesn’t have to go through with this. Morgan says she wants what Taylor has. She thanks Taylor for her support and hugs her. She thanks Ridge for his support and hugs him.
Amber wonders if something went wrong? What if Becky took off? Amber thinks she should be there. Stephanie wonders if maybe she is right, if this isn’t handled just right, the results could be disastrous. Amber says Becky needs her. Sally says she will need her; she will need all of them. Sally “You know what’s going to happen when he tells her the truth.” “She will tell CJ to forget about her and move on.” “He loves her and wants to do everything for her.” “This maybe their last moment alone together, his last chance to be strong for her.” “Don’t cut that moment short.” Stephanie says she is concerned. Sally says CJ is capable of doing this. This love they share has changed him, he is a different person, more mature, thoughtful, selfless. When Becky is told the truth, it has to be handled the right way. We have to get past our own grief and sadness and concentrate on Becky. To be sure she gets what she needs. Right now that is exactly what CJ is doing. Amber asks Stephanie if she thinks Becky will “disappear?” Stephanie says as long as they remember her, she will never disappear. Stephanie feels as long as Amber, CJ love Becky she will always be remembered. Amber says the baby will love her too. Eric comes in with the baby and says they are ready to go. Amber takes the baby, and they leave.
The door opens, Amber comes in. Becky “Amber?” Amber “Becky, I’m so sorry.” Amber holds Becky. Becky looks confused; she looks up and sees Stephanie, Eric, Sally and Little Eric in the doorway
