Marcus: What the hell are you doing in my stuff?
Steffy: Is it true? Is Donna Logan your mother?
Katie: I still think you're taking an awfully big risk not telling Eric about Marcus.
Donna: I will tell him.
Brooke: You said so yourself--with Marcus working at the company, the news could get out before you're ready, and then where will you be, Donna?
Donna: What do you suggest, Brooke? What--what, I call a meeting with the executive board and just lay it out there-- preemptive strike?
Brooke: Wait too long, and it'll be out of your hands altogether.
Donna: Okay, you made your point.
Brooke: Well, I'm gonna make another point now-- my relationship with Ridge.
Donna: Tell me you are not going to tell him.
Brooke: (Scoffs) Well, you've put me in a really awkward position.
Donna: No, promise me you're not gonna say anything.
Brooke: Katie, could you please talk to your sister here? Katie, are you all right?
Donna: I'll-- I'll get Bridget.
Katie: No, no, no. I'm fine. I'm fine. I-I was just thinking about something.
Brooke: What were you thinking about?
Katie: I think it's really good that you told Brooke about Marcus. It's one less person to have to pretend around.
Brooke: (Sighs) Katie, don't do this.
Katie: Do what?
Brooke: I know that something's bothering you. I can tell.
Donna: So can I, Katie. What--what took you a million miles away?
Katie: Well, to tell you the truth, I have been thinking a lot about our mother.
Nick: This stuff piles up fast.
Jackie: Oh, I should have gone through it for you. You know, weeded out the junk. God knows you've had enough on your mind lately.
Nick: Yeah, we all have.
Jackie: I took Katie up some soup earlier before her sisters arrived.
Nick: Very thoughtful.
Jackie: Hmm. She seemed quite melancholy to me, actually.
Nick: Really? I didn't get that from her.
Jackie: No, well, maybe not melancholy. That's too strong a word. Um, stoic, as though she'd resigned herself to something.
Nick: She's tired, Mother. Don't read too much into things.
Jackie: Oh. So what, I'm being melodramatic, is that it?
Nick: Well, you do have a penchant for that, which is what makes you so irresistibly charming.
Jackie: Excuse me. This is no laughing matter.
Nick: What would you like me to say?
Jackie: That things, the situation--your situation, has suddenly got very complicated. Am I wrong?
Nick: Are you ever wrong, Mother?
Jackie: Good. Well, seeing I'm on a roll, I'm going to venture yet another opinion.
Nick: Is it about me?
Jackie: It's about Katie.
Nick: (Sighs) Oh, go ahead.
Jackie: Nicky, it's very clear to me, after talking to her, that she's fallen madly in love with you... hasn't she? Okay, I'll take that as a yes. (Sighs) how do you feel about her?
Marcus: Now who said you can rifle through my things, man? Give me that.
Steffy: You didn't answer me. Is it true?
Marcus: It's none of your damn business.
Steffy: Look, Marcus, I-I'm sorry. I shouldn't have gone through your stuff. It was wrong.
Marcus: Yeah, then why'd you do it?
Steffy: Because certain people here are worried because of Donna, okay?
Marcus: Right, certain people, meaning your family. So what's that got to do with me?
Steffy: They all know she was pulling for you to get hired, but no one knew why. She brought you in-- no experience, no design degree, no interest in fashion, no one the family's ever met, and then told human resources to skip the background check? I mean, why would Donna authorize that? We were thinking all kinds of things, but I sure never imagined you were her son.
Marcus: Well, I am. Are you happy now? Now you know the big secret.
Steffy: Why is it a secret? Why hasn't Donna said anything?
Marcus: Well, can you blame her for wanting to keep it to herself for a while, huh? I could just picture the kind of flack she'll get with a kid my age showing up out of nowhere. Look, she doesn't deserve to be treated that way, Steffy, but she is every day. I mean, what is it with you people, anyway? I mean, haven't you ever given her a chance?
Steffy: Oh, listen, dude, my grandparents are like icons around here. They built this company from the ground up. So when my grandfather marries this young hottie and tries to put her center stage, I say it's understandable why people are freaked. That's the situation you walked into, Marcus, so watch yourself.
Nick: Mother, will you please try and remember that I share this house with Bridget?
Nick: We're raising Jack together, and we have a very passionate relationship.
Jackie: Well, of course you care for Bridget, but you've been through something with Katie, something incredibly intense. I mean, could it be that you're just caught up in that? Especially now that this very vulnerable young woman sees you as something more than just a dear friend. Look, I know you adore Bridget. I adore Bridget. But, Nicky, if you follow your heart and it leads to Katie... (sighs) well, then...
Donna: What got you thinking about mom? I mean, have you heard from her?
Katie: No, and that's what I think is so strange. Have either of you heard from her?
Brooke: Not recently. Why?
Katie: Well, a lot has happened. (Sighs) never mind. It's just--I really wanted to thank both of you for everything that you've done for me, and, um, you made everything so special when you thought that I wasn't gonna be around much longer.
Brooke: No thanks needed, little sis.
Donna: It meant everything to us just-- just to see you happy.
Katie: Well, thank you. You both have been so supportive, and being alive is amazing, and I think I'm only beginning to realize how lucky I am to be a part of a family that--that cares so much and... loves unconditionally.
Brooke: Not hearing from mom is really bothering you, isn't it?
Katie: (Sighs) I-I-I don't want to bring everyone else down. It's--
Donna: Katie, you can tell us anything.
Brooke: Don't keep it all bottled up inside.
Donna: Yeah, it's not good for you. You're still recovering.
Katie: Well, okay, yeah, it's bothering me. It's bothering me a lot. I mean... (sighs) where the hell is she? And how many weeks has our family been in crisis? Storm is dead. I had a heart transplant, for God sakes. I mean, what-- what kind of mother doesn't come to her own son's funeral? What's wrong with her?
Steffy: How is it possible you're mother and son and no one's laid eyes on you till now?
Marcus: That's a long story.
Steffy: I have time.
Marcus: See, Donna gave me up when I was born because she couldn't raise me herself.
Steffy: (Sighs) You were adopted.
Marcus: Yeah, and I just found her after a lot of looking. I had a lot of resentment built up inside over being abandoned. But Donna was just a teenager, so I understand that now. We're still trying to figure each other out.
Steffy: Must be kind of rough.
Marcus: Well, yeah, it'd be a hell of a lot easier if she can tell Eric, but she's afraid that he won't react too well because she never mentioned that she had a kid-- never thought it'd come up. And from what she's telling me, he's been burned before with lies and stuff.
Steffy: Yeah, my grandmother Stephanie hasn't always been the pinnacle of honesty.
Marcus: You see, Donna thought it might go down easier if the family got to know me first-- liked me, but I guess that'll all blow up now once you go tell your dad.
Steffy: What makes you think I'm gonna tell?
Nick: Mother, everyone that knows Katie loves her.
Jackie: Yes, they do.
Nick: Those Logan women-- Donna and Brooke and Bridget. The way they rallied around her--
Jackie: So Katie could never bear to betray any of them, especially Bridget, is that what you're saying?
Nick: Is there any of that soup left?
Jackie: Nicky, I know you don't want to hurt anyone either. (Sighs) but if you've got feelings for Katie and you deny them...
Jackie: I'm telling you, it's--
Nick: You know what I'm gonna do? I'm gonna check with our guests and see if one of them wants to join me for a bite.
Donna: According to dad, mom's been too distraught to even think about traveling.
Katie: Well, that doesn't seem like an excuse, Brooke. We've all been distraught, if that's what you want to call it. It--I mean, for her not to come back, it doesn't make any sense.
Donna: Well, I can see why she missed my wedding, considering who I married.
Katie: For her to be a no-show at Storm's funeral...
Donna: Is it that hard for you to empathize, Katie?
Donna: Mom's not as young as she used to be, and if dad said that, you know, she's not well enough to travel all the way from Europe by herself, well, then I think we have to believe her.
Brooke: Maybe one of us should go check on her, see if she needs our help.
Katie: She's our mother. She's supposed to be supporting us.
Donna: She spent a big chunk of her life doing just that. Whenever we needed her, she was there.
Katie: You know something, Donna? I've needed her. I need her right now. I just can't believe that she hasn't been here through all of this.
Brooke: Honey, we can understand why you feel this way, given everything that you've been through.
Donna: So can I, but, Katie, I-I was old enough to realize what mom went through, the burden that she-- she carried when dad left. And she suffered a lot, probably a lot more than she let on, Katie.
Katie: That's not a get-out-of-jail-free card, Donna. I-I mean, for her not to show up at her son's funeral, to not say good-bye to him, to not be there with her family while we're grieving-- I mean, to not be there for me when I need her more than I ever have in my entire life.
Donna: Okay. Okay, just-- just give it some time, and I'm sure she'll come when she can.
Katie: Oh, okay. Sure. Sure, I'll give it some time. You know, I don't understand why she hasn't called or sent a card or--or a-a bloody e-mail. I don't know. It--it just--how about, uh, just a word or two saying that she's happy that I'm alive.
Brooke: Of course she feels that way.
Katie: How do you know, Brooke? How do you know? Storm died. I almost did, too. What kind of mother abandons her family at a time like that?
Marcus: You would keep quiet about me being Donna's son?
Steffy: I don't exactly enjoy having her in the family, and I know for a fact she's bad for the company, but I think you should have a chance to get to know your mom. I don't want to be the one to mess that up.
Marcus: (Chuckles) I mean, for you to give us this kind of a, you know, a chance--Donna and I, that's, um--are you sure you're really one of them?
Steffy: (Laughs) We Forresters are known to disagree from time to time.
Marcus: You know, you should let me take you to dinner, you know, just to say thanks.
Steffy: Oh, yeah. Okay. You're Donna's son, and I'm Ridge's daughter. Hmm, what's wrong with that picture?
Marcus: Yeah, you're right. That wouldn't be too good, would it? But you know, uh, the bad guy doesn't know that I'm Donna's son.
Steffy: Dinner, huh? I'll think about it.
Brooke: Poor Katie. (Sighs) she's so upset.
Donna: Well, I am glad that you agree that we should cut mom a little slack.
Brooke: These past few months have been horrendous for all of us, but I still think mom should be here for the family.
Donna: I wish that were possible, Brooke.
Brooke: How do you know it's not?
Donna: You know what? I don't. I don't. I'm just taking it on faith, but when I was scared and pregnant, mom was there for me, and I honestly believe that if she could, she would be on the next plane, but for--for whatever reason, she can't.
Brooke: Well, I'd like to believe that, too, but being a mother myself, I mean, I just can't fathom what would be keeping her out of touch for so long. If my kids needed me, I'd be there for sure, no matter what.
Katie: Well, if you heard all that, then you must know why I'm so confused. It doesn't make sense. It's like she's vanished off the face of the earth.
Nick: Well... if she won't call you... you can always call her.
Katie: (Sighs) What time is it there now?
Nick: Well, if it's nighttime in California, that would make it morning in France.
Katie: Well, she always did get up at the crack of dawn.
Nick: Maybe she still does.
Katie: Can you hand me the phone?
Nick: Yeah. (Phone rings) (rings)
Katie: It's ringing.
Katie: Mom? Hi, it's--it's Katie.
Katie: Um, I-I'm--I'm calling from Los Angeles. Is the connection okay? Can you hear me?
Beth: Uh, it's fine.
Katie: Good. Uh, it's--it's fine on this end, too. I hope I'm not calling too early.
Beth: Uh, no, no.
Katie: You always did get up at the crack of dawn. (Laughs) it's good to hear your voice.
Beth: Yours, too.
Katie: Um... how--how's Paris?
Beth: Well, it's, uh, just-- it's wonderful. It's almost summer. Weather's perfect. I imagine it's--it's hot already in California.
Katie: Yeah, it--it-- you know, it's sunny California. That's kind of the way it works. (Sighs) listen, I-I-I'm sure you must have talked to Brooke. Um, I'm doing better, you know, after the transplant. I'm on new medication so my body doesn't reject the heart.
Beth: Well, I'm so glad, dear.
Katie: (Sighs) well, you know, Donna and Brooke were just here, and we were kind of talking about how we-- we haven't seen you in a long time, and we were hoping that maybe you could-- you could come, because I'd really like to see you--
Beth: Uh, you--you know, uh, Katie, you-- actually, you have caught me at a bad time. I, uh, I have guests, and so I've--I've got-- I've got to run, but thank you, really. Thank you for--for calling.
Katie: Hello? (Scoffs) she hung up.
Nick: She what?
Katie: She hung up. I mean, I-- she said she had guests and that I was calling her at a bad time, and--and she just hung up.
Nick: That's weird.
Katie: Yeah. I guess so. I mean, I-- (laughs) I-I had a heart transplant, and she didn't even ask me how I was doing. I had to bring it up, and when I did, she said, "Oh, well, you know, well, that's nice, dear." I mean, like I was telling her I was having tea in the garden or something.
Nick: I'm sorry.
Katie: I mean I-it-- I don't get it. I'm-- I'm her daughter. I'm--I'm her flesh and blood, and she just blew me off like I was nobody. And--I-- she's--I-I don't get it. Storm's dead, and I need her. I-I need her.
Nick: I know. I know you do.
Katie: I-- (Sobs)
Nick: I know.
Katie: Sh--she acts like she doesn't even love me. I don't understand. I don't understand how she could be there the whole time when we were growing up, and now she's just gone. (Sobs)
Nick: She loves you. She... she loves you.
Nick: I want you to tell me is there anything that I can do?
Katie: No. No, nothing. I just, um-- I just-- I just want to be by myself, if that's okay. (Sniffles)
Nick: Steve. Nick Marone. Listen, get the jet prepped to go. We're gonna take a trip to Paris. And I need you to locate someone for me. Her name is Beth Logan.
