He has been selfish up until now. Brooke just told him that. Brooke knows that he is in a relationship and maybe living in the moment is not the best thing for Caroline.

That is all Thomas wanted for her. For her to be happy and fulfilled. Caroline gets a text and it is from Ridge. He wants her to meet him at home.

Rick asks if Maya texted Vivienne to say she was home. Maya texted her. They know how she worried. Nicole knows. Maya asks if Nicole has heard from Julius. Nicole has not. Maya hasnt either.

Brooke gives him a look and he wants to know what it is for. Brooke knows that Thomas has his concerns about Ridge and Caroline. Thomas thinks that somethings are just inevitable. Brooke thinks that he is going to make Caroline very happy
Ridge waits in his apartment and looks through a book. It has a lot of writing in it. Caroline walks in and he puts the book down. Caroline was just with Thomas. She thinks that he is not going to be ripping up his designs anymore. She thinks that he is right in line with what they are doing. He is taking in and processing every single note. Ridge feels that she is a good teacher. Caroline obviously knows that. Ridge wants Thomas to succeed. He also wants the best for Caroline. Caroline guesses that is good that she is with him because he is the best thing. Ridge asks if Caroline got him something. Caroline actually didnt. Her friend had a baby earlier this year and she got her something. It is a little baby dress. If Ridge had seen her in high school he would have never guessed she would have wanted to be a mom. She guesses that priorities shift though. Ridge asks if she wants to talk about it. Caroline wonders if he means her friends baby. Ridge means the one she wants. Caroline knows how Ridge feels about that so she is fine. Ridge points out the fact that she would pick Ridge over having her own baby is amazing to him. Caroline thinks that he is what is best for her. Ridge thinks that being a parent and having children was one of the best things in his life. He wants her to experience that. He cant have her sacrifice that for him. He wants her to have a child. She cries.
Rick and Maya continue to kiss while everyone else talks. Maya thanks him for their honeymoon. Rick wonders if she had a good time. Maya had the best time. Scenes of the two of them walking through Copenhagen are shown. They are smiling and laughing. They have a picnic together. Rick and Maya toast to each other in the present and start to kiss each other.
Thomas asks why Brooke would say that. He wants to know what she knows. Brooke claims that she doesnt know anything. Ridge was just talking. He didnt come out and say anything through because he knew she wouldnt approve. Brooke cant say anything it isnt her place. Brooke decides to admit that Caroline wants to have a family. Thomas already knew that. She opened up to him. Brooke is shocked that the two of them talked about having kids. Thomas knows that Ridge doesnt want any kids. Brooke is concerned that he has changed his mind. She thinks that Ridge is at home right now telling her that he wants a baby.
Caroline is baffled at what Ridge is saying right now. Ridge has been a little unfair. Caroline doesnt think that he has been unfair at all. He wants to live in the moment. Ridge thinks that works for him but Caroline is in a different place. A career and children mean a lot to Caroline. He wonders what would have happened if someone had said no to having a family to him. It would have been devastating to him. He thinks she will be an incredible parent. Caroline was trying really hard to be ok with never having kids. Caroline thinks that they have so much love that she thinks that they could have a great little family. Ridge thinks it would be nice. Ridge thinks that is what Caroline is going to have. She will be an incredible mother. Whoever the father is will be one lucky guy.
Thomas asks if Ridge really changed his mind. Brooke told him that he wouldnt say for sure. It felt that way though. Thomas guesses that he under estimated him and he must be way more into Caroline than he thought. He was trying to help her. He is waiting for the eventual day that Ridge walks away. He already knows how devastated Caroline will be. She has been dying to have a child and he is supposedly going to do it. Brooke says it is as far as she knows.
Caroline doesnt think he is making sense. Ridge is setting her free. Caroline doesnt want that. She wants to be with him. Ridge knows that she doesnt. He is way too old for her. Caroline asks what he means. She wants to know why he would bring up the age thing. He is acting like a wise old man. He doesnt know what is best for her. She wants to be with Ridge. He knows that she wants to be a mother more and that is what matters. Caroline tells him to have a child with her then. Caroline is crying. Ridge cannot be that man. She needs to find someone else. Caroline thinks that the age thing is a terrible excuse. He might live fifty years or die tomorrow. He could get hit by a car. Ridge thinks she is right about all of that but he cant have a child with her. Caroline wants to know why he cant have a child with her. Ridge has never loved like this with anyone else. Caroline asks why he is doing this. Ridge doesnt think they were meant to be. Caroline thinks that he has never been more wrong. She runs out crying. Ridge walks back over to the book. He takes a piece of paper out and opens a letter. He looks worried.
