Ridge: Hey, you're still here.
Ridge: I was just thinking about you.
Brooke: Oh, yeah?
Brooke: Mmm. (Laughs) Hey, Buster.
Ridge: Now I can get on with the rest of my day. Hey, look, this just came in from Como. What do you think?
Brooke: Wow, that's really beautiful. So you're working on the showstopper for the summer line?
Ridge: Our showstopper, my love-- your wedding gown. What do you say you try one on? We can pretend we're on our honeymoon.
Brooke: Oh, uh, well, most people believe that if a groom were to see the bride in her wedding dress before the wedding that it's actually bad luck.
Ridge: Well, then it's a good thing I'm not a superstitious man, 'cause in my mind I've already seen you in every gown I've ever designed for you even before it graced your beautiful, voluptuous body.
Ridge: Is there something going on I should know about?
Brooke: Yeah. Something's happened with Taylor. Have you heard?
Ridge: I haven't heard anything.
Brooke: Well, she moved out from Nick's house and left the baby with Nick. Now everything's turned upside down.
Ridge: Turned upside down for Nick and Taylor, not for you and not for us.
Nick: (Indistinct baby talk) (blows raspberry)
Nick: Oh, who's at the door? Should we get the door? D-d-d-yes, yes, we should. Okay, here we go. Whoa. You are growing by the day. Strong boy. Let's see who we got here. Let's see who it is.
Nick: Bridget, hi. Come in. Come in.
Bridget: Look at you. I, um, I'm sorry. I probably should have called first.
Nick: Oh, no, you don't have to call. You're welcome any time, right, Jack?
Bridget: Well, thank you. I just wanted to check on Taylor, she how she was feeling and stuff.
Nick: Taylor left. She moved out.
Bridget: What? Wh-where did she go?
Nick: She moved back to her home in Bel Air.
Bridget: And she just left you with the baby?
Nick: You know what she's been going through the last few months. Here you go, buddy. Here.
Bridget: Oh, my goodness, Nick, I am so sorry.
Nick: Things happen for a reason, you know, Bridget? I'm just sorry she's been hurt so badly.
Ridge: I'm not surprised she left Nick, but I can't believe that Taylor would ever walk out on Jack. It's just not in her character to abandon a child. She's a very dedicated mother. Why would she do that, Brooke? I mean, it doesn't make sense.
Brooke: The situation is just too much for her to deal with.
Ridge: By situation you mean the fact that you are Jack's biological mother? Are you saying Taylor left because you're the egg donor?
Brooke: I-I don't think it's really that simple, but yes, I think that's part of the problem.
Ridge: I just don't believe that Taylor would ever abandon that child, that's all-- under any circumstance.
Brooke: (Sighs) Well, she's not there right now, and Nick is. Look, I know this upsets you, Ridge, but I'm really concerned about that baby.
Ridge: Let's let Nick and Taylor work it out then. Come on, you know how I feel about this. I think we should let them live their own lives.
Brooke: I know, I know, but Jack's gotta be really confused right now. He's cared for, and then he feels loved. And when he cries, he expects his mother to take care of him, and Taylor's gone right now, so he needs a mother.
Ridge: Brooke, I know Taylor. I know her. She's reeling from the information that she found out that you are the biological mother of this child she was carrying for nine months-- you and Nick. Is--you know, hell, it bothered me, too. But I still don't believe that Taylor would ever abandon that child, no matter what.
Brooke: I wish I could be as sure as you are, but I'm not. So I was wondering if, uh, maybe when we leave here and we head home we could just swing by there, make sure he's okay.
Ridge: I don't believe what I'm hearing. You seriously expect me to drive by the Marone house so you can go in and check on Nick's kid? Haven't you heard a word I've been saying?
Nick: You know, the last few months have been tough for Taylor.
Nick: Even though I tried to deny it, they've been a little rough on me, too.
Bridget: Of course they have, Nick. I-you finally have this precious boy, and there's all these complications that surround him.
Nick: You know, I really thought that we could make it through all this, but I guess it just wasn't meant to be, right?
Nick: It's okay.
Bridget: Well, is she angry with you?
Nick: No, no, she doesn't blame me for what's happened at all. But it still doesn't make it any easier. I feel responsible on some level, and I can't help it. Are you--are you happy?
Bridget: I think if anyone should be responsible for-- it's--it's me.
Nick: You uncomfortable?
Bridget: I mean, I don't know how I let something like this happen.
Nick: Bridget, don't do that. Look at this guy right there. Look at him. He's a little miracle. Now would you do anything to change this? Some things are just meant to be.
Bridget: So um, well, what-- what does my mom have to do with Taylor leaving?
Nick: Well, nothing that's her fault.
Bridget: Um, wait, what does that mean exactly?
Nick: I told Taylor the truth. I told her that I still have feelings for your mother.
Bridget: Are you still in love with Mom?
Bridget: So you tell Taylor this, and--and then she leaves?
Nick: Bridget, I'm not making any excuses. The whole thing's a little bizarre.
Bridget: Have you told Mom how you feel?
Nick: I did.
Bridget: Nick, I mean, my goodness, she's about to marry Ridge, and they share a son together, too.
Nick: Well, you know, life's short. They're not married yet, Bridget. Maybe they won't be.
Bridget: So you asked Mom to marry you?
Nick: Well, in so many words, I guess, sort of.
Bridget: And what did she say?
Nick: Nothing yet.
Ridge: Brooke, we've already been through this. You know how I feel about getting too involved in Nick and Taylor's lives. Jack is their son. Let them deal with him. They'll work it out.
Brooke: How can you be so sure? Taylor left and left Nick alone with Jack. Sure, Nick is probably a good father, but still, that little baby's going to miss his mother.
Ridge: So you want to go over there and take care of Nick's kid? Why? Nick is perfectly capable of taking care of his son for an evening or even for a couple of days, if need be, while Taylor gets things together. You really think of yourself as Jack's mother, don't you? (Knock on door)
Katie: Um, hi. Sorry. I-I-I don't mean to interrupt. If you two are having an argument, I can come back.
Brooke: No, Katie, we're not having an argument. We're just having a difference of opinion. It happens from time to time, even in the best relationships. (Cell phone rings)
Ridge: Hello? No, Max, don't do anything until I get there. I'll be down in a minute. I have to go, uh, solve a problem in the cutting room. Where the hell is Thorne when you need him?
Katie: What are you doing? You're gonna blow things with Ridge if you keep this up.
Brooke: He understands me, Katie. There's nothing to be concerned about.
Katie: Brooke, you've been in love with Ridge since-- for as long as I can remember. I-now you have him all to yourself. Are you really willing to risk that? I mean, don't do it.
Brooke: You're really being overdramatic.
Brooke: Besides, there is a crisis in the Marone home. Taylor left, and she left the baby with Nick.
Brooke: So? Is that all that you can say is "so?" Who's gonna take care of that baby? Who's going to be his mother?
Katie: Not you, Brooke. Not you. But that's what Nick wants, isn't it? Believe me!
Bridget: (Sighs) This is all a little, um, over the top for me. Um, it's not super fun for me to hear you talk about my mom like that. And it's not the easiest thing for me to see you with--with Jack. Do you ever wonder what might have happened if Nicole hadn't died? Like, wh-- do you ever think about Nicole?
Nick: I think about her every day. She's our little angel, and she's watching over us, and she knows that we love her.
Bridget: You really feel that? Me, too.
Bridget: (Sighs) This is such a confusing time for you, and here I am just adding to it.
Nick: And a fine addition it is.
Bridget: I remember that look. It looks like you could use a friend.
Nick: (Chuckles) Are you offering?
Bridget: Oh, Nick, um, you know that I will always be here for you and Jack.
Nick: And you know that you will always be more than just a friend.
Katie: Brooke, you cannot go over to Nick's house to take care of Jack. You've got R.J. and Hope and your responsibilities here. I mean, if nothing else, there's no time.
Brooke: I will always find time to take care of my son.
Katie: He's not your son. He's Nick and Taylor's son. How do you think Ridge feels when you talk like that?
Brooke: I can't deny my attachment to him. I love him.
Katie: What about his father? Do you love him, too? Oh, my God, this is what you do time and time again. You--you make the same mistake. You act on impulse without thinking things through. I-I-I don't understand you and Donna. You--you--you just jump in without any regard for consequences.
Brooke: Well, that's what love is, Katie.
Katie: No, no, I don't think so. You know, I-I think people use that as an excuse. They say, "Oh, well, I did this foolish thing or this selfish thing or this impulsive thing, because I was so in love."
Brooke: Tell me something. Have you ever been in love?
Katie: We're not talking about me.
Brooke: Well, when it happens, you'll understand.
Katie: You know, this attitude that you and Donna have that I couldn't possibly understand, because I've supposedly never been in love-- it's a little condescending. But this isn't about me. It's about you and Nick. I realize you may still have feelings for him. You were married to him once. It's understandable.
Brooke: Nick wants me to leave Ridge and make a future with him and Jack. He loves me, Katie.
Katie: Oh, my God. What did you say?
Brooke: I don't know. I was so overwhelmed, I didn't say anything.
Katie: Well, you have to respond. You can't just leave something like that hanging.
Brooke: I know.
Katie: You--I mean, this is a huge life decision. You--you can't just not answer him.
Brooke: Katie, I realize that.
Katie: Brooke, listen, you're building a life with Ridge. Yes, you're Jack's biological mother, but you have another son, R.J., with Ridge. Just don't mess this up. Think it through. This could be your last chance with Ridge. It's a huge decision. I know it's only yours to make.
Brooke: I need to speak with Nick.
Katie: No, that's not gonna work. Brooke said that it needs to be there by 3:00. All right. Thank you. You're a doll. Ciao.
(Knock on door)
Bridget: Oh, hey, Katie. Uh, where's Mom?
Katie: She left a little while ago. How are things at the hospital?
Bridget: Oh, they're busy. They're really busy. Um, I must have just missed her then. Well, I guess I'm just gonna have to wait. Um, how are you? It--it's really good having you back home. I know Mom's loving it.
Katie: Yeah, it's good to be back. It's nice being with family.
Bridget: Good. Where do you think she went?
Katie: She had to see someone. You know, we should have lunch. What's your schedule like tomorrow?
Bridget: Who did she have to go see? I mean, uh-- I'm sorry. Uh, lunch. I'm s-what about lunch?
Katie: Are you okay? You seem kind of distracted.
Bridget: Oh, um... (scoffs) I'm just frustrated. I'm afraid that Mom is about to make a huge mistake.
Katie: This wouldn't have anything to do with Nick Marone, would it? (Laughs)
Bridget: How do you know that?
Katie: I know that Brooke is confused, and apparently, he says he wants to build a future with her.
Bridget: (Laughs) So she must have talked to you about all this?
Katie: I told her she needs to make a decision, and she needs to not wait too long.
Bridget: My goodness, Katie, you're not suggesting that she get back together with Nick, are you?
Katie: No, not at all. I think she belongs with Ridge. But she needs to see Nick and set things straight with him so she can move on with her life.
Bridget: Exactly. And thank God someone's talking some sense into her. Surely she'll listen to you.
Katie: I hope so. But that's where she is. She went to see Nick to tell him her decision.
Nick: Why did you come over here tonight?
Nick: You came over here, because you wanted to be with me and Jack, didn't you?
Brooke: Yes, but--
Nick: No buts. I've loved you since the first day I met you. Since the first time I laid eyes on you, I knew that I loved you. And that's just grown and gotten stronger from that day.
Nick: Can you tell me the same thing? Look at me.
Nick: Can you tell me the same thing? Can you?
Yes. (Doorbell rings)
Nick: (Chuckles) Well, is it the good news gang or the bad news bears?
Brooke: Actually, I came by to check on you and little Jack. How's he doing?
Nick: Uh, he's upstairs sleeping. I finally got him down. You know, this male bonding we have going is getting very tiring. We were up last night watching the Laker game. We knocked back a few beers. (Chuckles)
Brooke: Oh. Have you heard from Taylor?
Nick: Yeah, she called about Jack. She sounded better.
Brooke: I still can't believe what she did, how she walked out on the two of you like that, leaving you all alone.
Nick: (Sighs heavily) Brooke, you know how I feel about you. You know that I love you, and I always will. I want to give Jack something that I didn't have. I want to give him a stable home with two parents that are gonna love him completely and unconditionally. Now you are his mother, and he needs his mother. I hope that's why you're here. I hope you're here to tell me that you want to raise this boy together. But if you don't, there is no way that you're gonna convince me that you don't love me as much as I love you.
Brooke: I'm so blessed to have you in my life, and I think you know how much you mean to me.
Brooke: I've made a decision. I've searched my heart, my soul. I know what I want. I know what I have to do.
