Quinn: I don’t know what to say… it wasn’t my place to share with you that eric’S… struggling with E.D., But… he can’t possibly mean this–
Carter: No, he’s not thinking straight, quinn. He can’t be. I mean, you’re his wife and I’m sorry he’s lost his ability to be intimate. But to make this request and then go up upstairs to sleep?
Quinn: Wait, wait, we both heard exactly what he said, right? He–he loves me so much he doesn’t want me to lose this aspect of my life. He still wants to be my husband, but he wants you and me to–
Carter: Be together tonight.
Brooke: Eric is such a sensitive and caring man.
Donna: He’s wonderful. He deserves nothing but the very best.
Katie: The last few times I’ve been around, I mean– he just doesn’t seem like himself.
Brooke: That’s because of quinn and the stress that she puts on him.
Katie: He’s puts on a smile for everyone else but I would like to see him actually happy.
Donna: He claims that he’s happy with quinn.
Katie: Well, how can he be after all that betrayal?
Brooke: He needs a good woman. A wife who can be committed and faithful to him.
Katie: How many more chances is eric going to give quinn?
Donna: He must still have faith that somehow they can work through their differences.
Brooke: Arguing over finances or where to go for dinner, that’s one thing. But trying to earn trust back– that’s completely different.
Katie: I just can’t believe he took her back after her affair with carter.
Donna: He is a lot more forgiving than I could ever be.
Brooke: He cuts her way too much slack, that’s for sure.
Katie: I just, I feel bad for him. I mean, clearly he’s doing everything he can to make things work.
Brooke: Yeah, but I mean to what extent? Quinn’s just going to keep taking and taking and taking!
Donna: I hope she appreciates how kind and understanding he’s been through this.
Katie: Oh. Quinn’s never satisfied with what she has. She always wants more.
Brooke: I really thought he lost it with her.
Donna: I guess he’s just trying to salvage whatever they have left.
Brooke: But is that really reasonable? What more could he possibly do to make quinn happy?
Eric: I know how she feels about me. And I know how she feels about you. I think that we should encourage that.
Quinn: Encourage it?
Eric: My sex life is over. Yours doesn’t have to be. The night is yours if you want it.
Quinn: I can’t believe what eric is suggesting we do.
Carter: Yeah, when I got his text to come over tonight, this is–
[ Chuckling ] Not what I imagined.
Brooke: Carter, you’ve been put in the most awkward position, I’m so sorry.
Carter: It seems like he’s coming from a good place though, right? Like, this isn’t a test to measure our loyalty?
Quinn: No, no, no, it’s not that. I–& I think he really means it. He’s willing to make this sacrifice for me, for our marriage. Must have been a really… difficult decision for him to make.
Carter: Yeah. It proves how much he loves you. He said tonight’S…ours.
[ Quinn sighing ]
From the very first touch,
Katie: I’m sure eric appreciates the companionship, but how many times has he had to explain quinn’s behavior or apologize for her actions?
Donna: The list is a mile long.
Katie: It’s endless. And it keeps getting worse and worse. I mean, it’s bad enough that she’s turned her back on her wedding vows. But what’s next? I mean where’s the breaking point?
Brooke: That’s right. That’s what I keep saying. I mean, why should eric be stuck in this cold, dysfunctional marriage?
Donna: Sis, what are you doin’?
Brooke: I… am calling eric.
[ Phone ringing ]
Brooke: Hi, eric. I hope I’m not calling too late.
Eric: No, no, no. It’s all right. Is everything– is everything okay?
Brooke: I hope so. I’m here with donna and katie. We’re on speaker phone.
Eric: Wow, you are. Well hello, ladies.
Donna: Hi, eric–
Katie: How’s it goin’?
Brooke: We just wanted to tell you that we were thinking about you and thinking about all those years gone by–great memories.
Donna: So many, so many wonderful memories.
Eric: We’ve all been very lucky.
Brooke: Look, I’m going to get straight to the point here. Um… you know we’re not fans of your wife.
Eric: Is that right? Yeah, I wasn’t aware of that. Is that true?
Brooke: And we were wondering why you took quinn back after she had that affair with carter.
Eric: Look, I’d rather not talk about all that right now. All right? I’m just off to bed. So…
Brooke: Oh eric, I’m– I’m sorry. I don’t mean to just dump this on you, it’s just– we want to remind you that you’re an amazing, loving and giving man.
Donna: Eric, it’s true. You–you’re one in a million. You know? Special in every way.
Brooke: And don’t you forget it.
Donna: Any woman should be thanking her lucky stars to be with you.
Katie: I agree with my sisters. I don’t want you to ever change. I don’t want you to lose sight of what’s important because you are perfect just the way you are.
Donna: All we’ve ever wanted for you is your happiness.
Brooke: And we’re not sure that quinn can give that to you. We just don’t want you to be stuck in an unaffectionate, loveless marriage.
Eric: Listen, ladies. I’m convinced that I’m not going to live in a passionless, empty marriage. I’m going to be fine. I appreciate your care and your concern for me, I really do, but uh, I’m going to go to bed. Thanks very much, bye.
Brooke: I hope that was okay.
Katie: It was sweet of you to reach out.
Donna: He did sound a little down though. You know, like–I don’t know, he’s like feeling alone.
Quinn: He’s proven it to me over and over again. He let me back in this house. He finally opened up about all of his private struggles. But how can he possibly think that this is the solution? That–that allowing you and me to–
[ Whispering ] I can’T.
Carter: Yeah, I feel the same way. As much as I want… I respect eric too much and I already feel bad for betraying him. Even with his blessing this still feels…
Quinn: I know. I know exactly what you’re saying. I mean, what eric is suggesting– he must really feel like this is the only way to save our marriage– you giving me what he can’T. I–I mean, look. On one level, it’s–it’s very loving, it’s very selfless, right? But we can’T. It’s wrong on every other level, it is wrong.
Carter: I don’t disagree. We’re not doing this.
Carter: We can’T. And it kills me quinn, it kills me because I miss you so much. I miss every inch of you. I miss kissing you, I miss touching you, I miss making love to you. I think about you all the time.
Quinn: I miss you too, carter. The time we spent together, it was… it was incredible. But it was also terribly wrong. It was betrayal to eric.
Carter: I can’t go back there.
Quinn: No. No, we can’t do what he is suggesting.
Carter: We wouldn’t be able to stop ourselves. I’m going home.
Quinn: Yeah, that is– it’s for the best.
[ Exhales ] Please… I don’t ever want to talk about this ever again. Okay. You should go. Um… I need to go upstairs and lord only knows what eric is thinking all alone in our bedroom.
Carter: You’re an amazing woman, quinn. Eric is lucky to have you in his life.
Quinn: You’re an amazing man. Carter, you’re incredible in every way. Goodnight.
[ Sobbing ]
Brooke: Did eric seem uncomfortable to you?
Donna: He knows you mean well. He knows you just called because you’re worried about him.
Brooke: I’m sure he’s sick of hearing it from me.
Katie: You care about him. You’re trying to protect him. You don’t want to see him getting hurt again.
Donna: And I’m sure he appreciates the support.
Brooke: Yeah, I should probably just let it go.
Katie: It was harmless. You gave him a little pep talk. We let him know that we’re thinking about him.
Donna: I bet he wasn’t expecting a late-night conference from the three of us.
Katie: Well, at least we didn’t video call at him.
[ Laughing ]
Brooke: If we did, quinn would’ve grabbed that phone out right of his hand.
Donna: And I’m sure that’s part of the reason why he, you know, was distant. He’s probably not in bed by himself.
Quinn: Sorry. I didn’t know if you were asleep yet.
Eric: No, I haven’t fallen asleep yet. I’m just… I’m just sitting here like A…
Quinn: No. Lactaid is 100% real milk, just without the lactose.
Katie: Okay, who else are we going to call next? Who’s night are we going to make?
Donna: Oh, it’s been a while since we’ve done some prank phone calls.
Brooke: Aren’t we too old for that?
Katie: Never, never too old for anything.
Brooke: Aren’t most people in bed by now?
Katie: How about… -johnny leventino?
Donna: Oh my–
Brooke: Wait, isn’t that the guy that you had a crush on in grade school?
Katie: Hey, I saw a picture of him. He still has all his hair.
Donna: I haven’t thought about him in years.
Katie: Well, maybe he’s single. Ready to mingle.
Donna: Oh no– okay. All right. Worth a shot.
[ Laughing ]
Brooke: Okay, okay. You girls stay here and have your fun. I’m going to go home to my hot, sexy husband.
Katie: Okay, fine. Say hello to your hot– I mean, husband from your single sister,
Brooke: Honey, you’ll find romance again some day. I’m sure there’s that special man out there for you. Oh, come on.
Donna: Who am I kidding? There is only one man for me. The true love of my life. It’s eric forrester.
[ Crying ]
> Quinn: You’re an amazing man. The time we spent together was… it was incredible. Carter, you’re incredible in every way.
Eric: You look beautiful, quinn.
Quinn: Thanks. It’s new.
Eric: I’m talking about you. You’re an exquisite woman, quinn.
Quinn: You’re sweet. Always makin’ me feel good.
Eric: What are you thinking about?
Quinn: I’m trying to process everything that happened, right? Didn’t happen. Look, I know you love me, eric. But what you did tonight…
Eric: You’re like a wonderful, exquisite work of art, you know that? But spirited, full of energy. Passionate and excited. There’s a passion I can not fulfill, you know that.
Quinn: Yes, you can.
Eric: I can’T. We both know that. We’ve gone through this before. It’s a passion that needs to be fulfilled and I can’t fill it. But carter can.
Quinn: I have everything I need, right here. You’re enough. You’re more than enough, eric. Good night.
