Brooke and Ridge engage in a little kissy-face in the office. She’d like to savor this moment forever, no worries, no distractions. And this is one thing she can truly count on. He remarks they can’t change the world, just the way they respond to it. That’s the dilemma she says, how can you do that without hurting those you love the most? He wonders if there is something she wants to share with him? She confides that she is worried about Bridget. She may be getting back with Nick. He doesn’t see that as a problem since they are two adults who have been married to each other, so he figures they can decide if they want to be involved again. Brooke isn’t so sure. She thinks Bridget could really get hurt as she didn’t realize she still had feelings for Nick. He warns that Bridget may get hurt, but Brooke can’t control her life anymore. She just needs to step back and let Bridget find out on her own. She’s a tiny bit worried when Ridge rushes off to see Ashley about their new perfume line. She remembers Rick’s words that if she doesn’t let Nick go completely, Ridge might leave also back into Ashley’s arms.

Clad only in panties and Nick’s pajama top, Bridget plants a kiss on Nick sprawled out in bed…..all sleepy-eyed and tousled hair. The sun is streaming in on him and she comments that it’s about time he was getting up. He glances around and down under the covers and remarks that she must have worn him out last night. She quips that she certainly hopes so. She wishes she could stay in bed with him all morning, but she has a busy schedule and has to go soon. She comments that she knows they are just taking it one step at a time, but for the record last night was a lot of fun and meant a lot to her. He doesn’t say anything, but responds by grabbing her and pulling her onto the bed. She tells him that Rick dropped by and she let him take Jack to the park as she didn’t think Nick would mind.

Rick shows up at Taylor’s office and surprises her with someone she needs to see. She is delighted to see Jack and drops all to be with him. She doesn’t mind that Rick lied and told Bridget he was going to the park…….in fact she could kiss Rick. Katie stops by Nick’s. Since she was there the night before, he’s surprised to see her. He comments that she really likes this house, doesn’t she? She answers that she left her sweater last night and she’ll just take a moment to find it. Is Bridget still there? He replies that she just left, not that it is any of Katie’s business. Katie grills more, so Bridget spent the night? When he doesn’t answer, she adds that she hopes at least they had a good time. Dryly, he mutters that he had a good time. She asks is that it? Is that all, after she busted her butt getting Bridget over here? He asks if she wants details? She replies no, that’s okay, forget she asked, as long as he made her happy. He did make her happy, right?

Ridge works with Ashley and holds her arm out and sniffs….the perfume that is. He says it is intoxicating….. wonderful…..sophisticated…..refreshing…..beautiful, much like it’s creator. She’s glad that obviously he hasn’t lost his charm. Is she blushing? He wants her to realize that her contribution is very much appreciated as the fragrances are a very big hit for Forrester Creations. And now that things are more complicated between him and Brooke, he might be appreciating Ashley even more.

Taylor confides in Rick that she’s much better now. She is seeing James almost daily, taking better care of herself, going to A.A. religiously, back to work part time and no longer thinks of herself as a victim. She was dealt a raw hand, but she can rise above that. She doesn’t have to let his mother control her life anymore. Brooke is not going to be a part of Jack’s life, and she doesn’t know why she was ever so worried. Taylor hates to see Rick take Jack as she’d like to spend a lot more time with him. He admits to her that ever since they kissed that he has been consumed with thoughts of her. She cautions him that Brooke better not hear him say that or she’ll go ballistic. He agrees, she won’t be happy, but he’s a grown man and he knows what he wants……and he wants her. He gives her a kiss.

Bridget stops in at Brooke’s office and Brooke apologizes for the words they had to say to each other last night. Bridget admits that she is sorry too. Things just sort of overwhelmed her. Brooke shyly asks how things went with her and Nick, and Bridget confides it was a wonderful night. Brooke offers that she is so happy for her. Bridget also is glad, she wants her mother to be. Brooke hugs her and says she is, sometimes she is just that over-protective mother not wanting her little girl to get hurt. But she knows that Bridget is capable of making her own decision. Bridget assures her that she will be okay. She and Nick can find their way back to each other. She needs something from Brooke to be able to do that – she needs Brooke’s assurance that she won’t interfere and let them solve their own problems. Brooke promises her that she has that…..she won’t have to worry about a member of her family taking Nick away from her ever again.

Oh but…….Nick mocks, “Did I make her happy? Well, we both slept well.” Katie quips that sleeping is good, then switches to is Bridget coming back? And then if he misses the sea, she saw some pictures last night of him on his boat. He admits at times he does. Katie wonders if it is the sea itself Nick misses, or just his other life? He tells her that he’s been at sea most of his life, it’s in his blood, but then that doesn’t answer her question…….well, life changes, things change and you learn to roll with it. He pours her some coffee, unadorned, strong and black like she likes it. They both look at each other, sizing each other up and studying each other.

Ashley says things are always complicated between Ridge and Brooke, so there’s nothing new about that. And besides aren’t all relationships pretty complicated? She asks what is going on, he can talk to her? And frankly she is surprised that Brooke hasn’t drug him to the altar by now. He confides actually they had another falling out the other night over the whole Nick-Taylor-Jack episodes and Brooke got down on her knees and proposed to him. She wanted to get married right there and then, but he said no, just didn’t feel right. Ashley promises she won’t go running off discussing this with Brooke. But there is something he needs to know. She doesn’t blame him for not wanting to run off and get married, nobody wants to get hurt. She says she too was hurt when he called off their engagement……and what she is trying to say is that she is not a door mat, not for him or for any man. He interrupts and says he knows that. She is a tremendous, amazing woman and he will always care for her. They move closer to each other and she smiles and thanks him, saying she will always care for him too. Instinctively they move into each other’s arms and hug. Their lips only inches away from each other, they both fight the attraction and temptation to kiss. Ridge finally gives her a light kiss on the forehead and she leaves.

Bridget tells Brooke that she’s not just thinking of herself, but of Brooke and her relationship with Ridge as well. Brooke assures her that she will be okay, don’t give it another thought. She just prays that all will be okay with Bridget and that Nick won’t let her down. Bridget tells her mom that she just HAS to do this, has to take this chance for finding happiness. Brooke just needs to not be sending any mixed signals to Nick. He needs to be clear. That means no holding hands and no meetings at Insomnia. Brooke has hurt her too many times before in the past and she needs to believe her this time. She doesn’t want them to go through that again. “If I get my heart broken and I lose Nick, I can deal with that. But, what I can’t deal with is losing him one more time to you.” Brooke promises that she will not interfere, she will not stand between her and Nick. Bridget brightens up and announces that without Brooke in the picture that she is sure her and Nick can make it because there is no one else in the way!

Oh, but my dear there is……Katie cuts to the chase and says she was not there for her sweater after all or even for the coffee. She wants to know what is going on? He asks what does she want him to say? She replies she wants to hear that he and Bridget had a wonderfully, fabulous time last night. He admits they did. Then she wants to hear some enthusiasm. He claims she is being nosy, but she denies that. She asks a lot of questions because she has a vested interest in this. She feels responsible as she encouraged Bridget to come over here and try to get back with her life with him. He reminds her that perhaps then she should just stay out of other people’s lives. She suggests that Bridget is crazy about him and wants a happy life with him and to help raise his son, and Katie can’t believe that Nick doesn’t still have feelings for Bridget. He says he does. She wants to know if they are for real? Because if they are not, then she has made a big mistake in encouraging this. And Bridget should run from him as fast as she can. She pegged him for a stand-up guy, but perhaps she has misread him. She asks, “you wouldn’t sleep with Bridget if you were still hung up on Brooke, would you?”
