Donna: I don't want to divorce Eric. Now you know the truth. Nobody was supposed to know. "Tell nobody." That's what Pam said.

Stephanie: So she's actually blackmailing you?

Donna: I never said anything.

Stephanie: Well, that's what Owen just said, so what--

Donna: That was a mistake. Now just go.

Stephanie: What are you afraid of?

Donna: She will go after Eric again, okay? She's somewhere nearby. She's--she's watching. No just go, okay? Look, she put Eric into a coma. She confessed to everything. And she will do it again if-- if I don't let you have him, okay? So just go. There's nothing you can do about this.

Stephanie: Well, I may be the only person that can do something.

Donna: No.

Stephanie: She's my sister.

Donna: Look, you-- you don't know what she's capable of, the--the people she could hurt.

Stephanie: Who has she threatened?

Owen: Anyone that Donna cares about. Listen to me. Stephanie can reason with Pam.

Donna: No! No, she'll--she'll set her off. Just go. Go. There's-- you can't be involved.

Stephanie: But I am involved because she's my sister and be-- look, she's ill, all right? Maybe she... (sighs) maybe you need my help as much as she does.

Donna: No. Just take Eric, okay? Just take him and forget that we had this conversation, because someone will be killed. Now just go. Go.

Rick: Taylor, I brought home some samples of wedding cake for you to try. Hope you're hungry. Taylor?

Ridge: What are you doing, doc?

Taylor: Something I have wanted to do for a very long time, but I didn't realize it until just now, right this moment. And I'm also looking at you, and I'm thinking, what happened to us?

Ridge: Taylor.

Taylor: No, it's just a question. I'm just wondering. What happened to our life? What happened to our dreams and our plans?

Ridge: Things change. Lives change. We're marrying different people.

Taylor: (Clears throat)

Ridge: Doc...

Taylor: No, it's okay. I'm sorry. Forget I said that. Forget I was here. And definitely forget that kiss.

Ridge: What if I can't?

Taylor: I knew it. I knew you felt that, too.

Taylor: They're still there, all those feelings-- they're still there.

(Knock on door)

Stephanie: Hi. Bad timing?

Eric: I'm expecting Donna.

Stephanie: Oh.

Eric: Divorce papers. I'm ending my marriage today.

Donna: You had no right to tell Stephanie. Pam is dangerous. We should have just stuck with the plan. (Cell phone rings)

Donna: Hello?

Pam: What are you up to, hot tamale?

Donna: Nothing. I got rid of Stephanie. I-I've done everything you've asked.

Pam: What did she want? Why did she come back?

Donna: Look, she just-- she wanted to--to pressure me, okay? To sign the divorce papers, which I should be doing right now, okay? Eric-- (sighs) he's expecting me.

Pam: I told you to stay away from him!

Donna: Look, Pam, he-- he wants me to sign the papers at the office.

Pam: No. No.

Donna: Do you want me to end this marriage, or not? Pam?

Pam: Okay. Okay, fine. Fine. But this is the last time that you are ever gonna see him again. Do you get me? And don't do any funny business, tootsie, or else.

Donna: I know.

Pam: (Sighs)

Owen: You gonna do it?

Donna: (Sighs)

Owen: You gonna sign the papers? End your marriage?

Donna: What choice do I have?

Taylor: (Sighs)

Ridge: You are the mother of my children, Taylor. I've never denied our connection, what we had.

Taylor: I feel like I just woke up. It's you. It's always been you. I-I just realized you have been the standard of measure of everything in my life that makes me happy. I-I didn't even realize I was doing it. I wa--I was just maybe doing it subconsciously. I would ask myself, is this going to make me as happy as it did when I was with Ridge? And I-I know that after we were apart, that it just didn't feel the same. And that kiss--that just-- it's like it brought it all back, the passion and the love and the--the history that we shared. I miss our family. I miss our life together.

Ridge: I miss our family, too. You, me and the kids. (Sighs)

Taylor: I just--I can not believe all this emotion and--and these feelings that-- that I've been repressing. It's a little overwhelming. I'm--I know why I had to do it. Because it was so painful that I wouldn't have been able to survive emotionally, and I was so aware of what I had lost and all the time I'd been away. And then when I came back, it seemed like everything had changed. But right now, right in this moment, just looking at you, touching you, it's like nothing changed at all.

Eric: All right, fine. Thanks for letting me know. And tell Gloria that she can come in. I'm ready for her now. All right. Thank you. Donna's on her way up. This is your chance to escape now, if you want to.

Stephanie: I'll stay, if you'd like.

Gloria: Oh, Stephanie. Hello.

Stephanie: Oh, Gloria. It's nice to see you.

Gloria: Good to see you, too. Uh, your assistant said Donna's here?

Eric: Yeah. She is.

Eric: You brought him? You bring your lover to your divorce proceedings?

Owen: Donna doesn't have a lawyer. I'm a paralegal.

Eric: (Scoffs)

Donna: I don't need a lawyer. I know you'll be fair.

Owen: Still, I should take some time to look over the papers.

Eric: (Sighs)

Donna: Just hurry, okay? I just want to do this and get out of here. Here, just give it to me.

Donna: "Petition for dissolution of marriage."

Owen: Not yet. This one is a settlement. You've just got to sign right there.

Eric: I'm keeping the house.

Eric: That's it? We're ending our marriage, and you have nothing to say to me?

Ridge: Taylor. Brooke and I are planning our wedding.

Taylor: I haven't seen her doing that.

Ridge: We accepted Jack into our family. You knew that.

Taylor: Yes, but, uh, remember the party? That's just the beginning. You saw how Nick and Brooke-- they gravitated right towards each other.

Ridge: They're Jack's parents.

Taylor: What you need to do is think about how it made you feel. Because that's Christmas. That's thanksgiving. That's every single birthday party that Jack will have for the rest of his life. That's exactly how you'll feel. That's it. That's how it'll be. And I know you, Ridge. I know how much you love holidays, and you love special times together. I know that you don't-- you don't want the drama. You just want to be home in a calm environment with the people you love the most. And the reason I know that is because that means a lot to me, too. Do you remember all the times when there'd be all this chaos going on and we would just grab the bags and the kids and we'd just take off and we'd just go away and have fun? Just go to big bear or go to the beach or go away for however long, just disappear. And every single time we came back, you'd say, "this is how I wish it could always be."

Taylor: You know you can't have that with Brooke. You know that you can't. Not with Nick. I mean, you're going to always be dealing with Nick.

Ridge: Taylor, whatever is going on here, it's not about Nick.

Taylor: I love you. And I'm not apologizing for that. I'm not fighting myself anymore. I'm not going to deny what is true. It's reality. That's the way it is. Maybe Brooke is right. Maybe, um, in a perfect world, I would rather be with you.

Ridge: It's not that simple. It's not that simple.

Taylor: I know. I know Brooke has a tremendous hold on you.

Ridge: What about Rick.? You're engaged to Rick.

Taylor: I can't marry Rick. I can't. Not--not if I'm having these feelings. Not if I'm hoping that maybe there's a chance with you.

Ridge: (Sighs)

Taylor: Look at all the times we've been separated, and then we find our way back to each other. It could happen again. All you have to do is-- is want it as much as I do.

Ridge: Doc, you're right. What we shared together was-- there's no comparison at all. And I remember all those times, all those beautiful memories. And, yes, what you're feeling, I'm feeling it, too. But my future is with Brooke.

Ridge: And I know you think we're headed for difficult times and I'm just gonna be disappointed again, but it's not gonna happen that way, because I'm not gonna let it.

Taylor: She's still got you snowed.

Ridge: Taylor, I made a promise, not just to Brooke, but to myself, to Jack, to--to do better, to, uh, act differently, not fly off the handle. No more ultimatums.

Taylor: So then nothing I said--

Ridge: Taylor, I do love you, and I always will.

Taylor: Then there is a chance for us. I wish you would just stop being afraid. You know, eventually, you're going to realize that a relationship with Brooke is just a fantasy. And I'm going to tell Rick tonight, because I'm not living my life in a fantasy. And when it all falls apart with Brooke, you know where I'll be. I'll be here waiting for you.

Donna: I haven't said anything because there's nothing I can say.

Eric: You're so certain about this whole thing. Just sign the damn paper. Come on.

Eric: Fine.

Owen: That's the receipt of petition.

Eric: All right. Oh, for god's sake, here. Give me this. You just sign it like this. All right? Sign it, Donna.

Gloria: I'll get these filed today.

Donna: Are you enjoying this?

Stephanie: No.

Donna: Does this make you happy?

Stephanie: No.

Donna: Then why the hell are you here?

Stephanie: I don't want Eric this way. What my sister's done is wrong. She's ill. She's mentally ill, and she needs help. Donna, I'm trying to find her, to help her and protect her.

Donna: Protect her?

Stephanie: Yes, and protect you, too. Look, I have an idea. (Sighs) I'm gonna need your cooperation.

Donna: Why the hell should I trust you, Stephanie?

Stephanie: Because there isn't anybody else for you to trust. And I'm probably going to give you what-- what it is that you want most in this wor--Eric. So I suggest you help me.

Taylor: (Sighs)

Rick: (Groans) Shoot! I was gonna surprise you with samples of our wedding cake. Hope you're hungry. I brought all your favorites. You're not hungry. Oh, because you had too much cake at Jack's party, right?

Taylor: That isn't it. Look at this. This is so sweet of you. You always do such wonderful things for me. You know, you're my hero. You're... always coming to my rescue, and I-I know you treat me like gold. But--

Rick: Wait. Wait. What's--what's going on here? Taylor, talk to me. What's wrong?

Taylor: I'm so sorry, Rick. I--

Taylor: I can't go through with the wedding. I'm so sorry. I can't marry you. I can't. I can't marry you.
