Caitlin shouldnít be surprised, she never sees Thomas anymore because he is always with Gaby. Gaby is taken aback and tells her she is sorry, but her and Thomas are just friends. They connected because of their moms. Caitlin tells her that it is very obvious that Thomas cares about Gaby. She tells Gaby that she hopes she knows what she is doing. Caitlin didnít know what she was doing and she blew her chance. She tells Gaby that guys like Thomas donít come around everyday and turns around and hurries out of the shop. Gaby is dumbfounded.

Eric & Stephanieís:
Nick and Taylor continue the discussion over who should end up with Ridge. Nick asks Taylor not to take Ridge away from Hope and R.J. Taylor realizes that Hope and R.J. were almost Nickís family. Nick admits that he still cares a great deal about the children. Before he was involved with Brooke, he had never been around small children before. They change his whole outlook on life. Taylor knows that Nick wants what is best for Hope and R.J. That is what she wants to. They all want to be able to find a way out of this without anyone getting hurt. Nick tells her that it is most important for the children not to get hurt. Taylor reminds him that Hope and R.J. are not the only children in this situation. Nick thinks it is different for Thomas and the girls because they are older. Taylor canít believe that Nick feels her children should suffer because they are older. She tells him that as a psychiatrist, she could argue that younger children adapt easier to divorce. Nick tells her that she said that like a true shrink.

Nick tells her not to move into the master suite just yet. Taylor canít believe that Nick thinks Ridge will choose Brooke. She has been trying to hold on to Ridge since they were teens and she has never been able to. Nick tells her that Ridge has made mistakes too. Taylor thinks that is why Ridge is able to give Brooke the benefit of the doubt, and she could too if Brooke made better decisions. She comments again on Brookeís decisions affecting her children. Nickís feathers get ruffled again and he tells Taylor that Brooke has been a good mother to her children, she would never hurt them. He believes that Taylor knows that too. Taylor asks if he is defending her. Yes he is. She asks him if he is defending her because he is her friend or because he loves her. When Nick doesnít answer her, Taylor draws her own conclusion. Nick thinks she has just pulled a shrink trick on him. Nick warns her not to bait a fisherman. Taylor is trying to have an honest conversation with him and knows that peopleís lives are at stake here. Nick tells her it is Brookeís life that is at stake. Taylor asks him if it is wise idea for him to marry Bridget when he obviously still has feelings for Brooke. Nick gets a little riled at this again and asks her if Stephanie wrote some of this dialogue for her. When Taylor notes that he is getting defensive again, Nick tells her it is because he isnít going to let Taylor spin this around on him. His wedding has been postponed, but it is still going to happen. He is going to marry Bridget. Taylor tells him that it isnít Ridge that needs to make a decision. It is him. He needs to decide if he is going to be with Bridget or Brooke. Nick doesnít want to hear any more of this and simply walks out the door.
Ridge & Brooke/Taylorís:
Brooke has made some coffee for her and Bridget. Bridget is a bit intrigued. She tells her mother that she called Nickís office and the assistant told her that Nick left after receiving a phone call from Stephanie. Brooke panics at hearing this. She knows that Stephanie also called Taylor over there this morning. She knows that Taylor and Stephanie are now trying to turn Nick against her too. Bridget tells her that there is no way that Nick will be turned against her. He knows that Taylor has been in a coma for years and has no way of knowing what kind of mother she has been. He also knows that Stephanie has an agenda. Brooke calms down a bit and looks at a picture of the whole family together. Her, Ridge, Thomas, the girls, Hope and R.J. She tells Bridget that when Taylor came back she tried to be supportive. She loves Thomas and the girls and was so happy for them. She accepts that Taylor deserves a place in their lives. Now though, Taylor has started to demonize her and make her into a villain. Brooke hates what this is doing to the family, and most of all she hates what it is doing to her.

Brooke knows that is how they feel. Nick tells her that it really is Brooke that they are concerned with. Him and Brooke. Brooke is confused, they know that Nick is engaged to Bridget.
