Nick: I was told to think about it and... (sighs) to be honest about my feelings. What I just told you is the truth. I'm still in love with you. You know, I tried to deny it, but I can't.
Brooke: You can't be in love with me. It can't happen this way. It just can't.
Rick: Oh, Bridget, I'm so glad you're here.
Bridget: Really? How come? What's going on?
Rick: I've just been thinking a lot about this whole Baby Jack- Taylor-Mom-Nick fiasco.
Bridget: Yeah. I completely understand that. I've been dealing with this for months.
Rick: It's just that nobody seems to be handling it very well.
Bridget: Well, I definitely think that Mom should stay out of it completely. But I don't know if that's even gonna happen, considering how she is with babies and the fact that she's Jack's biological mother.
Rick: You do know that this is gonna pull Mom and Nick back together again? And I'm not worried about Mom. She's gonna come out of it okay. It's Taylor. I mean, she's really gonna be messed up by all this.
Taylor: Stop it! Get out of my house. Nick is my husband.
Brooke: Don't waste your time trying to stop me, Taylor. I get whatever I want whenever I want it. I always have.
Taylor: No, you will not-- you will not do that this time! Nick is different. He isn't like the Forrester men.
Brooke: Oh, yes, the Forrester men-- I've had them all. You know, Thorne-- he's so fabulous. I had him eating out of the palm of my hand. And Eric-- the patriarch of the family, Stephanie's devoted husband-- oh, he couldn't get enough of me. He was ravenous for me, and he still is. And Ridge--oh, Ridge-- the crown jewel of the family. You thought you had him once, but you never did.
Taylor: Shut up!
Brooke: Oh, yes, of course, he respected you, and he admired you, but you couldn't give him what I give him...
Taylor: Shut up.
Brooke: Which is sex appeal and chemistry. I know what a man wants, Taylor, and I know how to give it to him.
Taylor: No, no, no! I'm not listening to you! I am not listening to you anymore. You are my past. You are not a part of my life.
Brooke: (Laughs) Well, that's just the thing, Taylor. I am a part of your life, and I always will be. You know, ever since Jack was born, I could only think about one thing, well, two things, actually-- my son and his father. I want Nick, Taylor, and I am going to have him.
Nick: I'm sorry. Maybe I shouldn't have said anything.
Brooke: (Scoffs) What in the world was James thinking, asking you if you're still in love with me?
Nick: I wanted him to come here and help Taylor, but he realized there's more going on than that. A part of the problem is... (clears throat) me and my feelings.
Brooke: Nick, I know how hard you fought for your marriage. You are committed to Taylor.
Nick: I am, and I've never denied that, and I'm not denying it now. I love Taylor, and I love Jack, but that doesn't change the way I feel about you.
Rick: Taylor is on the losing end of this. That's why she's totally freaking out.
Bridget: Why are you so, uh, concerned--I mean, it's sweet that you're so concerned about Taylor. I'm just a little, I guess, surprised.
Rick: You haven't seen her, Bridget. I have. She's a mess, and it's bizarre, because Taylor is-- she's always been so strong and with it. She's--she's one of the most inspiration women I've ever met. And--and she's a basket case. She doesn't deserve this. You know what I mean?
Bridget: Um, no, yeah, of-- no, of course she doesn't deserve any of this.
Rick: It just gets to me, that's all. I mean, Nick and Taylor-- they've been so happy together, right? And they've been--they've been struggling for the longest time to have a child, and they finally do, but guess what? It turns out to be Mom's-- Brooke's. I mean, how ridiculous is that? Can y-can you imagine what Taylor must be going through, how she's feeling?
Bridget: Of course I can imagine what she's going through, Rick. I feel terrible about this. What do you want me to do? I wish to God things had... (exhales deeply) I wish things had just turned out differently.
Rick: Mom and Taylor have been rivals for years. It's been one issue after the other. (Sighs heavily) it's like-- it's like Taylor just can't escape from our mother.
Brooke: Nick is mine, mine, mine, mine, mine.
Taylor: Shut up! You're not even here. This is all in my mind. It's just in my mind.
Brooke: I'll always be in your mind, Taylor. I'm never gonna leave. I'm always gonna be the source of your little... (whining voice) insecurities. (Normal voice) admit it, Taylor, you can't compete with me, 'cause I'm always going to win, and you are always going to lose.
Taylor: No. (Exhales deeply) no! No! No! No! No! No!
James: Taylor, Taylor, Taylor, What is it? What is it?
Taylor: No! James, help me!
James: What is it? What is it?
Taylor: Oh, God, make it stop. Make it stop. (Crying) She's everywhere.
Taylor: She's here.
James: Who's here?
Taylor: Brooke, Brooke. She's here. She's everywhere. She's driving me crazy. Please, James, please help me. Help me.
Brooke: (Sighs) I-I-I know you're struggling, Nick. I-I don't know what to do, what to say.
Nick: You know, you make decisions in life, Brooke, commitments, and then things happen, change. But you're still left with your commitments.
Brooke: You mean your commitment to Taylor?
Nick: When I think about what that woman's done for me-- I'm the one who wanted this child. She went through the in vitro for me. And when we got pregnant, we were--God, you know, we were so happy. Then our son was born, and our world seemed perfect. And then slowly the walls just started caving in.
Brooke: I know. And I was such a big part of that.
Nick: No, Brooke, it's not your fault. It was fate and circumstances. And regardless, I still want a life with Taylor and my son.
Brooke: (Sighs) I'm--I'm really glad to hear you say that.
Nick: But she's gotta know the truth. There can't be any secrets. I gotta tell her how I feel about you.
Brooke: What? No, Nick. You can't do that. She won't be able to handle this. You can't tell her how you feel about me. It will destroy her. My doctor told me something I never knew.
Bridget: Rick, it's not just you. I've always looked up to Taylor, too, ever since I was a little girl. I practically wanted to grow up and just be her. And think, I mean, I-I am the one-- granted, inadvertently-- but I am the one that's been causing her all this misery. Stupid mix-up in the lab. I desperately want to help her. Of course I do. I just don't know what I can do to--to help. (Sighs heavily) do you think my relationship with her is ruined? I'm afraid things will never be the same, and I can't tell you how sad that makes me. Believe me, I am just as worried about Taylor as you are.
Rick: We all should be.
Bridget: I might even understand more than anyone else exactly what she's going through, I mean, at least on one level, because I was there-- married to Nick and loved him probably too much. I probably still do. I'm-- I think I always will, but I had to let him go, because... I figured out that he probably loved Mom more than he loved me. And I'm afraid Taylor's in the same position.
Rick: Unfortunately, I think you're right.
Bridget: And I bet Taylor felt the same way I did, like, we're happy, right? I mean, at least-- at least I was. I thought he was. But something in the back of my head just always felt like I was standing in the way of the inevitable, and Nick would wake up one day and go into the mom vortex and think he couldn't live another day without her. And now he and Mom share a son. So the stakes are a lot higher. Rick, no matter how much I try to support... (sighs heavily) Nick and Taylor's marriage, I'm afraid that history is repeating itself. And Taylor's not only gonna lose her son, but she's gonna lose Nick, as well.
Taylor: I don't--I don't know what's wrong with me. (Sniffles) I'm seeing things. I'm hearing voices. I-I keep seeing Brooke. I know that it--it seems real, but it's--it can't be. I just-- I'm really scared, James. I don't know what's wrong with me. I feel like I'm losing my mind.
James: No, no, no, you're not.
Taylor: But this isn't like me. I've never had anything like this happen to me. I-is this what it feels like to be crazy?
James: Taylor, you have to calm down.
Taylor: I don't know how.
James: You have to calm down. Breathe.
Taylor: I've tried. I just want to stop these repetitive thoughts.
James: When I came into the room, you were terrified.
Taylor: I'm so glad you're here now. I don't do well when I'm alone. (Sniffling)
James: You're not alone.
Taylor: I wish Nick was here.
James: Nick will be back soon.
Taylor: But then again I don't know if I want him to come back, because I don't want to hear what he has to say. (Sniffles)
James: You have to know the truth, Taylor.
Taylor: I don't want to talk about this.
James: Listen to me. If Brooke is in Nick's heart, then she will be in your mind, and she'll be in your life. You can't deny it. Neither can he. Brooke has been such a negative force in your life for such a long time. You cannot just will her away. That is not possible.
Taylor: Then what other choice do I have? That--there is no other choice, but to just leave him.
James: No, you have to be honest with each other. And if Nick tells you he still has feelings for Brooke, then you have a decision to make. Taylor, I care about you too much to see you live your life this way.
Nick: I'm not gonna live a lie. I need to be completely honest with Taylor, because anything less than that is unfair to her.
Brooke: (Scoffs) My God, Nick. Taylor's already tormented by me. Now you're gonna tell her that you're in love with me still?
Nick: I am not gonna deny my feelings for you. I've always felt this way, always, and I always will, in my heart and in my soul.
Nick: When I'm with you...
Nick: When I'm around you, being alone with you like this--
Brooke: (Whispers) I know. (Normal voice) I know. I feel the same. I always have. It's just... (exhales deeply) people are going to get hurt, Nick-- Ridge, Taylor. What we feel has to be just between us. Nobody else can know.
Brooke: I feel the same way you do. That's why I'm asking you, please, don't tell Taylor about your feelings for me. She's not emotionally stable enough to handle it. I've tried to convince her over and over that I am not a threat to her or to her marriage. Now how's she going to feel when you tell her what you feel about me?
Nick: She deserves honesty, Brooke.
Brooke: No, some things are better left unsaid to certain people. Please, for Taylor's sake, don't do this to her. Don't make her deal with something that she's not ready for. Please.
Nick: I need to get home.
Nick: Do you ever think about this baby, our baby, yours and mine? Do you ever think that he just might be a sign?
Taylor: So, uh, basically what you're telling me is that, really, my only option is to... (scoffs) walk away from my marriage?
James: Under normal circumstances, I would never suggest such a thing. But, Taylor, your situation is far from normal.
Taylor: (Scoffs) you don't have to tell me that, James.
James: Through the most bizarre set of coincidences, you're married to Nick, who happens to be Brooke's former husband. You give birth to Brooke's biological child. I mean, naturally, you're under extreme psychological duress.
Taylor: You know what? I really have to wonder if it was a coincidence.
James: No, Taylor, don't--
Taylor: No, you really have to hear this. Listen to this. (Sniffles) Brooke goes and tries to find out if she can get pregnant with Nick's child and has her eggs tested right after she finds out that I can't get pregnant. And then oddly enough, her daughter is the one who donates the eggs to research. She oversees it. And then even stranger, her daughter is the one who's on cal when my doctor has to go away out of town. And so Bridget does the in vitro fertilization process. And then strangely, her eggs, her mother's eggs are the ones that end up in my body.
James: You're not suggesting that Bridget and Brooke conspired to do all of this?
Taylor: Well, I've tried to think of a lot of other logical scenarios, and there aren't any.
James: Taylor, I do not think it is healthy for you to be drawn into conspiracy theories at this point.
Taylor: What's healthy in my life? What does normal mean?
James: Your unraveling, and you know it, and you cannot live this way.
Taylor: Isn't that called copping out? You want me to just run away from my problems? That's gonna fix everything? I should just walk away from my marriage?
James: A lot of that depends on Nick and what he finds out about his feelings for Brooke.
Taylor: (Sighs) Hi.
Nick: Hi. How you doing?
Taylor: Mm. (Sniffles) it, um, hasn't been one of my--my better evenings.
Taylor: James told me that he asked you some questions and told you to do some thinking. I just-- I want to know the truth. James helped me see that I'm not going to get better unless I deal with what I have to deal with.
James: Taylor's mind's been caught in a loop of fears and doubts.
Nick: I know that. I'm sorry.
Taylor: I feel like I'm having a nervous breakdown.
James: It's really not fair to let her live this way.
Nick: No, of course it's not.
Taylor: James, um... (sniffles) do you mind if Nick and I have a little time alone?
Taylor: Thanks. I'll be okay.
Taylor: So, um... (sniffles) you've had a little bit of time to think, and... I just want to know the truth. I want to--I want to know what you feel in your heart.
Nick: Well, my heart feels a lot of things.
Taylor: Nick, I just need to know the truth. If you care about me at all, the kindest thing you can do is just say it to me. Be honest.
Taylor: Are you still in love with Brooke?
