The Bold and The Beautiful Transcript Thursday 7/20/06
Proofread by Becky
Thorne: I know what you're trying to do. You're to make sense of it but you can't. No one can. You go over it again and again -- the what ifs. What if we didn't have the birthday party, what if I would have been here when Phoebe called?
Taylor: You don't understand --
Thorne: But we did have the birthday party. I wasn't here because I was taking my daughter to Sally's for the night.
Taylor: Thorne --
Thorne: You know, something like this happens and everybody wants to make it their fault, including me.
Taylor: Don't say that.
Thorne: I wish to God it was my fault. I really do. Because then I would have a place to put this anger.
Announcer: The role of Donna Logan is now being played by Jennifer Gareis.
Brooke: Donna! Oh, my God! What are you doing here?
Donna: Well, you sounded so sad on the phone. What are sisters for?
Brooke: Thank you for coming down, it's so sweet of you.
Donna: I have more vacation days than I know what to do with. Besides, Darla was family.
Brooke: Yeah, I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around that one.
Donna: How's Thorne?
Brooke: He's -- heartbroken. They just celebrated Alexandria's birthday.
Donna: Oh, no.
Brooke: I just keep asking myself -- I wonder if she knew how much I admired her? I mean, the way she stood up for Thorne and the way she loved him and supported him no matter what. She gave him a beautiful home, a beautiful baby and they were so happy.
Donna: You almost sound envious.
Brooke: She made it all look simple. I'm really gonna miss her.
Donna: I was hoping I'd stay for the funeral if that's okay.
Brooke: Oh, yes, of course.
Donna: You don't have to ask your new hubby? I mean, he may not appreciate having a houseguest while you're still on your honeymoon.
Brooke: Oh, please, you're not just a houseguest, you're my sister.
Donna: Yeah, but you know what they say about family and fish.
Brooke: Nick's gonna love you.
Donna: I still can't believe you married him. I mean, instead of Ridge.
Brooke: Well, how many hours did we spend dissecting that one over the phone?
Donna: I know you were torn and all that --
Brooke: I wasn't torn.
Donna: You were about to marry Ridge when Nick stopped your wedding.
Brooke: That was a few months ago.
Donna: You can't just turn off years of feelings.
Brooke: I will always have feelings for Ridge, but I'm in love with my husband.
Donna: Remember when you finally first got to meet him? Ridge Forrester the prince of Beverly Hills. I mean, you couldn't stop talking about how talented and handsome and perfect he was. How many times did you tell me he was your destiny?
Brooke: Why are you doing this?
Donna: Because you're my sister and I know you, at least I thought I did. Ridge is everything you've ever wanted and you threw it away for some sailor.
[Nick clears throat]
Brooke: Nick, this is my sister, Donna.
Nick: How are you, Donna? My name's Nick. You just call me Captain Bligh.
Taylor: I'm sorry.
Thorne: I know you are. I shouldn't be laying this on you.
Taylor: You have every right to be angry. It should not have happened.
Thorne: You know what scares me? Spending the rest of my life asking why. Never finding an answer because there is no answer. And even if that sick bastard was standing in front of me right now, what could he say? That it was an accident? 'Cause that still doesn't answer the question. Why her?
Taylor: I want to explain.
Thorne: I wish you could.
Taylor: Thorne, I haven't been myself in a long time. Something happened to me. Something broke.
Thorne: When Ridge left you for Brooke.
Taylor: I'm not making excuses because they're just aren't any. But, I -- I started using alcohol as a way to cope with my pain.
Thorne: Taylor, I'm not going to start drinking. I have a daughter who needs me.
Taylor: No, this isn't coming out right.
Thorne: You're just trying to help.
Taylor: I need to tell you --
[Phone rings] Don't answer it.
Thorne: It might be Lieutenant Baker.
Taylor: Thorne, please wait.
Hector: What are you doing?
Taylor: I killed his wife. I killed his wife, Hector! I have to tell him the truth! I have to tell him the truth!
Hector: You haven't told him yet?
Hector: We talked about this. I thought you understood.
Taylor: I have to tell him what I did.
Hector: Taylor, telling Thorne the truth is not gonna bring Darla back.
Taylor: It'll give him someone to blame, someone to hate -- a place to put his anger. At least I can give him that.
Hector: Thorne. I heard. I'm so sorry.
Thorne: It's okay, man. You did everything you could to save her.
Taylor: Was that Lieutenant Baker?
Thorne: It was mom telling me that my little girl is okay.
Taylor: She doesn't know yet?
Thorne: No, I haven't told her.
Hector: Are you ready?
Thorne: You just got here.
Hector: She didn't get any sleep last night. Phoebe's worried about her.
Thorne: You're not still blaming yourself, are you, Taylor?
Taylor: Thorne, it never -- it never would've happened if --
Hector: You got there as fast as you could.
Thorne: Darla was closer. Look, Taylor, you are not responsible, okay? And neither is Phoebe. The last thing I want is for you two to feel guilty, okay?
Hector: She was really upset when I left the house.
Thorne: She needs her mother. Go home, Taylor.
Hector: We're gonna get out of your way.
Thorne: Okay, I'd better get that, I'm still waiting for Lieutenant Baker. Thanks for coming.
Hector: Come on. Come on. He's got enough to worry about.
Donna: I'm sorry, Nick, I'm not usually so blunt.
Brooke: Yes, you are.
Nick: That's all right. I am a sailor, you know. How long you staying?
Donna: I'm not sure yet.
Brooke: She's staying for Darla's funeral.
Nick: Really? I didn't know you know her that well.
Donna: The Forresters are like family. Ridge has been a part of Brooke's life forever.
Brooke: Donna --
Nick: I'm well aware of their history.
Donna: I just want my sister to be happy.
Brooke: I am happy, I told you that.
Nick: Well, you love your sister. You want her to be happy -- make sure she made the right choice. I respect that. Just try to keep an open mind.
Hector: Be careful around here, I've got termites. I'm replacing that beam. Are you cold?
Taylor: I'm not staying.
Hector: You're as close to breaking as I've ever seen you.
Taylor: I need to go home.
Hector: Not until I'm sure that you're not gonna talk to Thomas or anyone else.
Taylor: Thorne hates me. I'm the bastard who killed his wife. He doesn't know it yet, but he will.
Taylor: What are you gonna do, keep me locked up in here forever?
Hector: If I have to, I will.
Nick: Well, I'm gonna go shower, head into the office. You gonna stick around here, play hooky with your sister?
Brooke: Well, I really wish I could, but with the Forresters in mourning --
Donna: Go, go, please, you have an empire to run.
Brooke: You don't mind?
Donna: You didn't even know I was coming. I'll be fine.
Brooke: What about you?
Nick: Fine, fine, I'm always fine.
Brooke: So, it doesn't bother you that I work out of the Forrester office today? All the Brooke's bedroom orders coming in and the Forresters are reeling --
Nick: No, it's okay. Go.
Donna: Brooke! You're naked!
Brooke: Yeah, we've already seen that, Donna.
Donna: This is amazing.
Nick: I'm gonna shower.
Donna: What, you don't approve?
Nick: It is my wife.
Brooke: I never okayed that campaign.
Donna: Well, you certainly posed for it.
Nick: Stephanie used that to try to break us up on our wedding day.
Donna: Break you up? I don't understand. How could something as beautiful as this break you up.
Brooke: Well, I am CEO of Forrester Creations. And that's hardly the image --
Donna: You're selling lingerie -- sex. It's brilliant.
Nick: This'll be great. Excuse me.
Donna: You're not threatened, are you?
Donna: By your wife's sexuality.
Brooke: Donna --
Donna: Hey, if you've got it, flaunt it.
Nick: Absolutely. The question is are you CEO of the company or are you a lingerie model?
Donna: Well, she can do both, right?
Brooke: You know, I'm just really too busy to model, anyway, so --
Nick: I'll take your bags up to the guest room.
Donna: Let me get somethig straight. You gave up something you love, something you're passionate about for him?
Taylor: I just want to tell the truth.
Hector: Do you know what this would do to phoebe if you went to jail for something that wasn't your fault.
Taylor: And you keep saying that --
Hector: Because it's true. It was dark. It was foggy. Darla was dressed in black. She was changing a tire on the side of a busy highway. She fell backwards into oncoming traffic --
Taylor: So if it hadn't been the one to hit her --
Hector: Somebody else would've. Taylor, I do this for a living. It was an accident waiting to happen.
Taylor: God, you're trying to make it sound like it was Darla's fault.
Hector: She should've recognized the danger and called a tow truck.
Taylor: No, I shouldn't have gotten in my car.
Hector: You thought your daughter was being attacked.
Taylor: Then I should've called the police. But hey, guess what? I wasn't thinking clearly. I'm responsible, Hector.
Hector: No, you're not. And I'm not gonna let you throw your life away.
Taylor: There's a four-year-old little girl that's about to find out that her mother is dead. She'll never see her smile. She'll never have her mother hold her again. She'll never hear her say I love you. And somebody's got to pay for that.
Brooke: I was never passionate about modeling.
Donna: Modeling was your dream.
Brooke: Maybe when I was 15. But then I grew up. And I realized I wanted to be more than just a body.
Donna: You are. You're a brilliant businesswoman.
Brooke: Well, then, I guess I made the right choice.
Donna: That's my point. You don't have to make a choice, not anymore. You're the CEO of Forrester Creations, the face of Brooke's bedroom.
Brooke: Well, if it was just a face in those ads, I don't think we'd be having this discussion.
Donna: So you are giving up modeling because of nick.
Brooke: What man likes to see his wife nude in front of the whole world?
Donna: Ridge wouldn't have a problem with it.
Brooke: Ridge isn't just any man.
Donna: Exactly. He appreciates free expression.
Brooke: I never felt more myself than the times when I'm with Nick.
Donna: Scraping barnacles off your butt?
Brooke: Donna, please, you don't even know him.
Donna: I know you, Brooke. You love having your picture taken, being recognized and admired. And why wouldn't you? You're beautiful, intelligent -- you have nothing to be ashamed of.
Brooke: I'm not ashamed.
Donna: You're proud of that ad, I could see it in your eyes. And you wish you could do more like it but you won't because of him.
Brooke: You know the history there -- what Ridge and Stephanie were trying to do to us. Nick really is very supportive of me. He loves me. He wants me to be happy. He just doesn't want me to take my clothes off in public.
Donna: Brooke's bedroom is your baby. It's who you are as a designer and a woman. Are you just gonna walk away from that because your husband doesn't approve?
Brooke: I'm not leaving Forrester Creations. My modeling days are over. That's a fair compromise.
Taylor: I destroyed their lives.
Hector: It's not true.
Taylor: Stop it. Just stop it, Hector. I'm trying to deal with this honestly, without crutches and without blinders -- just truth.
Hector: You want to know the truth? I'll tell you. It's my fault that Darla's dead. Because I've known about your drinking for months. Ever since you ran your car into that tree. Which makes me just as guilty as you.
Taylor: No -- no I couldn't admit I had a problem, all right. I got a dui and I still didn't get it. Because I didn't like the way I felt when I was sober.
Hector: I'm gonna help you get the help that you need right now. And you will get past this.
Taylor: That isn't the way it works, Hector. It doesn't matter anyway because my life is ruined. It's never gonna be the same. There isn't gonna be a day that I don't think about her. I killed a little girl's mother. I robbed Thorne of the love of his life. There is no coming back from that one.
Hector: You have got to back from this, Taylor. And you know why? Because of your daughter, phoebe. You know how fragile she is. If you go to jail -- this would devastate her. The police have no way of connecting what happened to you. We are into something here and there is no turning back. No turning back.
