At Marone's, Brookes office, Ridge is still pleading his case for reconciliation when Nick walks in and glares at Ridge and tells him to get his hands off of her.
Stephanie and Eric walk into their living room all decorated and wonder what is going on? Felicia gushes they will soon know. Right on cue, the doorbell rings and its the entire extended Damiano family ..all perky, smiling and chattering at same time, happy to meet Felicia and her parents and Thorne and Darla. Introductions are made, kiss, kiss both cheeks, a lot of happy, smiling folks.
Meanwhile, Dante has Bridget pinned against the wall and they are checking out each others tonsils. She finally breaks away for air and he tells her dont. But, she laments that he is engaged to Felicia. He tells her only because he thought it was hopeless between the two of them, but now she tells him that she loves him. She says she does love him. She just wishes she had realized it much sooner. Then she reminds him there is a child involved. He tells her he will ALWAYS be there for his son, always. But, he cant marry Felicia when he really loves Bridget. He and Felicia will always be there for their son, they just wont be married. Still breathless, she starts to tell him that she grew up in a home without the parents ..and then she breaks off and tells him just go to Felicia. He pulls her back and kisses her again. Looking her in the eye, he says he cant give her up no way!
Nick ushers Brooke out of her own office. He then turns to Ridge and tells him he is pathetic. Ridge spits back pathetic? He gloats that he didnt hear any complaints from Brooke. Nick tells him hes a grown man, for heavens sake, and time and time again this woman has turned him down and yet he still pleads his case. That doesnt even register a blip on Ridges radar. He says when Nick breezed in like that, he doesnt think she was embarrassed for Ridge. Nick grouses that if he sees him around here again, hes going to have his ASCOT out of there. Ridge informs him .hmmmm, that is the only way hes going to keep them apart. I think deep down you know. You dont have a prayer.
A regular love fest is going on at the Forresters with uncle and cousins and Dantes ma ma telling Felicia she knows he has chosen wisely. She quips if she wasnt getting married, she would have them adopt her. One of them asks about Dante and she tells them this is all a surprise to him. Thats the sort of relationship they have had from the start, and she thought this would top them all.
Bridget and Dante dont want to let each other go. But, she asks what are they going to do now? They have to tell Felicia and shes going to be crushed because she is in love with Dante. His cell phone rings and its Felicia. She calls him handsome, and says does she have a surprise for him. Get his cute little tush over to her parents house, and find out! Bridget is apprehensive when Dante says he must go talk to her. They cant keep this from her any longer. He gives her one last kiss as he heads out.
Fingering the nighties he brought, Ridge tells Nick its only a matter of time before he and Brooke are TOGETHER in every way. All Nick says is did Ridge notice Brooke is wearing his wedding ring? And that shes marrying him as soon as his divorce is final. Ridge quips that a lot can happen between now and then. Nick tells him to accept it. Accept that she has moved on with him! Ridge tells him hes not the one batting ZERO here, talk about being in denial! It was Nick who ordered Brooke to fire him at Forrester, but she couldnt do that. Then he didnt want Brooke being around him or working around him but, he orders Nick to take a look around. He and Brooke are knee deep in a huge fashion extravaganza and its right under his nose, and guess what? She loves every minute of it. Nick points out its only about work. Ridge tells him this is more than just work. Thats why Nick is walking around with his chest all puffed up and threatening to throw his ASCOT out. He knows what is likely to happen.
Nick tells him that hes right. After Ridge VIOLATED her, he doesnt want him anywhere around her. Ridge says well now maybe he knows a little more what Ridge felt like after what he did to Brooke at Puerto Vista. Remember what happened at the foundry only hours after he thought Ridge had died? He points his finger at Nick and tells him before he accuses him of violating Brooke, he better take a good, long, hard look at himself, buddy! Nick just glares at him.
Then Nick says what happened at the foundry is nothing like what happened between Ridge and Brooke, and Ridge knows that! Ridge laments that what he knows is that he regrets the smallest moment of pain that he has ever caused Brooke. And he didnt violate her, because she realizes that and forgave him the very next day. Nick says please .he is the father of her child so she really has no choice here. Ridge asks when is Nick going to realize that Brooke is only with him because she wants to punish Ridge for leaving her for Taylor? She just wants him to know how it feels, thats what it all comes back to. He picks up a lacy garter and stands near his face and says if it really was over between the two of them, she would not VOLUNTEER to wear these for him ..and he snaps it in Nicks face. But, he does say oooooops.
Brooke paces but Bridget finds her hidden away in another office. She tells her she doesnt even want to know why. Brooke asks if she talked to Dante and told him how she felt? Bridget answers affirmatively that she took Brookes advice and followed her heart and told him how she felt. And he feels the same and they are going to be together. Brooke gives her a big hug and tells her she is so happy for her. Bridget says she never expected to feel this way again, but she does! Shes in love with an amazing man and he loves her just as much as she loves him. She sighs, but as much as she is grateful, she wishes it werent going to cost Felicia her happiness.
At the love fest, Felicia brings in little Dino and they all fall in love with him, new Grandpa even kissing his toes. Grand ma ma says he is perfect. Meanwhile, Dante hesitates at the door preparing how to meet Felicia head on and break the news to her. Imagine how stunned he is when he is presented with his parents and others from his family.
Bridget tells Brooke that if anyone deserves to find happiness and what she has found in Dante, it would be Felicia. And they have a son. Brooke agrees, and hell be a wonderful father, but if Dante loves Bridget as much as she says he does, Felicia would pick up on that and it would hurt her even more. So its better to tell her sooner than later. Bridget opines he is there now probably telling her .and now that she thinks about it, she should have gone with him. Although Felicia probably doesnt ever want to see her face again. Cheerfully, Brooke tells her she knows Felicia will be hurt, but she will get past those feelings. She knows she will. And she and Dante will have the most wonderful life ever .one that she deserves! They hug. Bridget tells her mom that she deserves to be happy too with Nick .but she doesnt think that Ridge is going to allow that to happen.
The men stand facing each other. Nick bends down and picks up the fallen garter. He tells Ridge not to expect Brooke to be modeling these; it aint gonna happen. Ridge taunts like he said Brooke wasnt going to work with him either. Nick walks away and picks up three or four more pieces Ridge has scattered about. He tells him Brooke is only staying with the company because she wants to pass something on for her kids. Ridge answers, right! You keep saying that and well change your name to Captain Gullible. Nick asks if that is before or after he re-arranges his face? And he plunks the undies hard to Ridges chest.
Again taunting, Ridge tells him that was always his solution. But, does he know that Nick was just a speed bump in his relationship with Brooke? And he looks at his triumph and says he is going to love seeing her in those. I know you like to tout yourself as Brookes white knight, but everything Brooke and I have shared over the years ..everything we still share ..(he wags finger) you cant come close to ..and you never will. He smiles slyly as he leaves, looking back one last time at Nick.
Dante wonders how all of this came about? Felicia says she wanted to meet them and she wanted them to meet Dino. His father comments that Felicia went to a LOT of trouble to make sure they met BEFORE they got married. They mush and gush how wonderful Felicia is. They know he came over because of another woman but that didnt work out. Now hes going to be the father to his son. And thats the way it should be! Dante has a somewhat sour expression on his face but he tries to look happy.
Bridget walks up outside dreading to go in hoping Felicia wont hate her. She walks into the merriment, the picture taking, etc. and Felicia spies her and tells her she is just in time to meet Dantes family. This is her father-to-be, Aldo, mother (I couldnt catch her name); Uncle Luigi, cousin Carlo and wife. Eric comments she seems just as stunned as Dante when he came in. She stammers she just didnt expect. Dante pops up and says neither did he! Felicia tells them actually there is MORE to her surprise she moved up the wedding. They are getting married this week!
Dante and Bridget exchange horrified looks. Felicia prattles that when they have gone through what she has, you seize the day. She takes Dantes hands and tells the room that she grew up a rebel. But, that was lonely and now she has him ..and their son ..and she has never felt more a part of her own family. And now his too. She feels so much love; she is more blessed than words can say. And she vows she owes it mainly to Dante this amazing, sexy, talented man who she loves with all her heart. She plants a big kiss on him. She says shes never been happier, and kisses him again. No one seems to notice that hes not responding as he shoots Bridget another trapped look over Felicias shoulder.
