Brooke: It’s been really eating me up inside, you know? Lying to you, lying to ridge. If he really knew the truth about what happened that night, if he knew that deacon was here and we were drinking like that and he kissed me and spent the night, I would lose him. I would. He would walk away and he would never look back.
Taylor: How can you feel so familiar after all this time?
Ridge: We held each other up for many years. I would recognize those hugs anywhere, blindfolded.
Taylor: We loved each other so much.
Ridge: And we have a beautiful fami to prove it.
Taylor: Yeah, what we shared lives on in thomas and steffy. Every time I look at them, I can see us. All those memories. It’s one of the reasons I stayed away. But I am grateful for what we shared, for the time we had. Because the same memories that kept me away for so long are the same ones that got me through some of the saddest moments of my life. When I couldn’t help looking back awhat could have been.
Carter: Mm… we should stop.
Carter: Mm…seriously.Paris: Why? Why? Zende and I agreed that we’re not exclusive. He’s literally out on a date with sequoyah right now–
Carter: Defense mechanisms, zende is still in love with you. And how can he not be? You are–you’re amazing. You’re beautiful. Sexy.
Taylor: Hey, you two.
Steffy: Sorry to interrupt.
Thomas: Yeah, we nca actually come back–
Ridge: Just get in here.
Taylor: No, your father and I were just… reminiscing.
Ridge: Yeahyou guys were children.
Steffy: Well, I’m glad to know I’m not alone because I think about that a lot, especiallnow y at mom is back. It’s nice. All of us being together.
Thomas: Yeah, kind of missed hanging out with both my parents. That’s weird, but…
Ridge: But it is nice, yes.
Steffy: Yeah. Better than going home, I’ll bet, now that brooke and hope have rolled out the red carpet for deacon.
Douglas: Mommy’s not back yet?
Liam: Hey. No, not yet.
Douglas: You’re sure she’s not upset with me?
Liam: Hey. Absolutely not. Of course, she’s not upset. Why would she be upset with you?
Douglas: Because I told you guys I saw grandma kissing santa claus.
Hope: Mom. Mom. Li it was one kiss. Okay? It’s not the end of the world.
Brooke: Your father spent the night, honey. We shared the same bed.
Hope: Wait, you said nothing happened.
Brooke: No, nothing did happen. Of course nothing happened! There’s not enough alcohol in the world. But ridge hates deacon. If he finds out what happened, if he finds out that he was here, my marriage is over. Life’s been hard enough.
Carter: I want you, paris.
Paris: I want you too so why are we still talking?
Carter: This is going against every instinct that I have but… I can’T.
Carter: No, not after what happened with quinn and eric. I can’t do that again, paris. I can’t go down that road again.
Ridge: Okay. I’m not going to lie to you. Brooke inviting deacon back into our lives, it’s been a problem. And it’s caused tension because the guy’s an idiot.
Thomas: Exactly. But brooke won’t listen to you. Being so adamantly against something or someone coming into your family and you’re trying to protect them. And you would think that she would be okay with that and not dismiss you.
Taylor: Maybe ridge doesn’t feel that way–
Ridge: You know what ridge feels right now? I–I feel that I can work it out with brooke. All right? There’s an obstacle, I’m gonna work around it.That’s–that’s what a marriage is. You fix things!
Steffy: Really, dad? Aren’t you tired? One obstacle after the next. Don’t you want some tranquility and peace–
Taylor: Steffy, I think you’ve said enough.
Steffy: I’m trying to make things easier for dad. I’m trying to remind dad that you have a family right here who love you. And we would never let you down the way brooke has.
Liam: Hey douglas, have a seat for a second. Here’s jelly. I just… I promise this the last time I’m going askto and then I won’t bring it up again, okay? But… are you absolutely sure about what you saw on new year’s?
Douglas: Yes! I really did see grandma kissing santa claus. I hope I didn’t make you and mommy mad by telling you.
>>: Brooke: I don’t want to lose my husband and my marriage and everything that ridge and I fought so long and hard for. Over what? Over a stupid, alcohol-fuelled mistake? This never would have happened if I was sober. You have to believe me.
Hope: Of course I do, mom.
Brooke: And that kiss to deacon, it was– there was nothing. Nothing. But ridge won’t believe that. The minute he knows that I let deacon stay here–
Hope: But you didn’T. You woke up and he was right next to you on top of the covers, so…
Brooke: Honey, there’s no way I come out of this looking good. You do understand that, don’t you? I will lose ridge. That’s whyou can’t say anything to anybody. We can’t risk it getting back to ridge.
Hope: Look, I understand that you’re afraid, but I have to tell liam. No, he was the first person that douglas told about what he saw and he’s concerned and he’s asking questions. And he knows I’m up here right now talking to you about this.
Brooke: No, no. No! It’s not that I don’t trust liam, I’m just desperately trying to hold onto my marriage, here. Oh, no. Oh, no.
Brooke: Well, douglas. He’s probably running around telling everybody that he saw grandma kissing santa.
Hope: No, I think he just told liam and me.
Brooke: Well, I don’t know, honey. He’s sweet. He’s an outgoing kid. He could be talking to anybody. And he doesn’t know that what he’s hanging on to is so explosive. He’s around taylor and steffy and thomas anridge all the time. They’ll figure out that what douglas really saying is… it’s gonna lead them bkac to me. Ordinary tissues burn when theo blows.
Paris: I guess I’m just a little confused. I thought you wanted this.
Carter: You have no idea how much.
Paris: Okay, so– so what are you doing? We’re both free.
Carter: Zende is still in love with you. That’s a fact. He bought a ring. He was going to ask you to marry him before you pulled back. He’s still adjusting, even if he’s seeing other women. And don’t want to make things difficult for him, paris. I– I don’t want tension between us. Not after what I did to eric.
Paris: But quinn was eric’s wife. I’m single.
Carter: But it still feels the same, it feels like a betrayal. Not to mention my standing with the forresters. I somehow came out of the whole situation with quinn with some respect intact. And if I got with a woman that’s– that’s involved with a forrester man? I mean, come on. The forresters, they’re like family to me and i don’t want to lose them. But at the same time, how am I supposed to stay away from you?
Thomas: Which is why it did work. That was– that was–
[ Steffy sighing ]
Steffy: I was hoping more time with dad, you know? It was fun while it lasted, though.
Taylor: Yeah, I enjoyed it too. Um, but it was clear that your father wanted to get home to brooke. Now, I meant what I said earlier. I don’t want either of you putting your father on the spot like that again.
Steffy: I don’t think it’s undue pressure to remind him that he has options, another family who respect his wishes when he feels strongly about something.
Thomas: Yeah, look, I’m trying to stay neutral here but honestly, brooke allowing deacon to hang around when it goes against my dad’s objections– it’s sorof it your-face disrespectful.
Taylor: Yeah, but there are mitigating circumstances. Brooke can’t do anything about it and hope wants to have a relationship with her father. Brooke doesn’t want to push her daughter away.
Steffy: How can you be so fair and reasonable all the time?
Thomas: I think it’s an occupational hazard.
Taylor: It is. It is, and I see what’s happening here. No matter how old or worldly, kids want the parents together. But you see, there is a hitch inhis situation. And hename is brooke. She’s married to ridge.
Steffy: Now. But that could change.
Liam: Douglas, I promise you, nobody’s mad at you. Okay?
Douglas: I’m not in trouble?
Liam: No, no–I mean, your mom and I weren’t psyched that you snuck out that night just because, you know, when parents say, “no,” it’s usually for a good reason. But listen, we’re really proud of you for telling the truth.
Douglas: I really did see grandma kissing santa claus.
Liam: Hey. Come here. Come here. Look at me. I believe you. I do.
Brooke: Douglas is innocent. He doesn’t know what he’s saying. Or that he’s sitting on this awful secret that could actually blow up my marriage. And he saw me kissing santa. So all he has to do is tell taylor or steffy, thomas–god forbid, ridge– and they would connect the dots straight back to deacon. And my marriage would be over.
Hope: Okay. You don’t know that for sure, mom. I get how ridge feels about my dad. But you were drinking. You were impaired. I mean, he–he has to understand that you wouldn’t have kissed deacon otherwise. And besides, the two of you, you’re forgiven each other for far worse.
Brooke: Honey, I know my husband. If he knows that I kissed your father, he will be gone. So how could I not be worried?
Ridge: Hey. What’s going on? (Vo) it’s yoooopllllaaaitiimmeee!!!
Carter: Believe me, paris, pushing you away is not what I want to do at all but I–I have to use my best judgment this time.
Paris: That is highly overrated.
Carter: Not if you’re me. Think about it. Eric and zende are living in the same house. First I was with quinn and now I’m here with you? Look, I’m not the kind of guy that betrays his friends. At least I wasn’T. And I don’t want to be again. What are you doing? You do that thing and you start to smile… and make it impossible…
Taylor: I know you both want our family reunited, but it’s just not possible.
Steffy: Aren’t you the one who always says, “nothing’s impossible?”
Taylor: Yes. But brooke is ridge’s wife, not me. I don’t want you wishing the end of their marriage. It’s bad karma.
Thomas: I wouldn’t want that with sheila and deacon hanging around.
Steffy: We’re not actively wishing bad luck on dad and brooke, but brooke does have a track record. It’s only a matter of time before she does something to drive dad away. And when that happens, you will be there for him.
Liam: Douglas is uh, playing outside and beth is still with amelia, so at least we have a chance to talk. You look drained.
[ Hope scoffing ] Anyway, um…douglas isn’t changing his story. I mean, I tried to give him the opportunity but he still insists that he saw grandma kissing santa claus. What did brooke say when you asked her?
Hope: My mom was shocked to say the least. So it’s not true. There was no santa claus, which is weird because, you know, it’s not like douglas to make stuff up.
Hope: He didn’T.
Liam: But you–you just… I’m sorry, I’m confused now. If… we know that it wasn’t ridge, obviously, because ridge was out of town, so… hold on a second, who was it?
Hope: Well, you’re not going to believe it but it’s true. Douglas saw my mom kissing santa claus. Or, at least a man wearing a red and white hat. My mother was kissing my father.
Ridge: Alright. Just us. Tell me. What’s going on with you and hope. I mean, you guys never fight so, something I should be concerned about?
Brooke: No, everything’s fine between hope and me.
Ridge: Well, I’m looking at you so it’s gotta be something else. And I’m not accusing anybody. I’m just asking what happened?
Brooke: You don’t know how much itothe b me, what happened that night. And how I wish I could just take it all back.
Ridge: I’m here, I’ll do whatever you need.
Brooke: What I need is to figure out why I had that temptation. It still really bothers me. I don’t understand it.
Ridge: I’m sorry, I can’t– I can’t–
Brooke: Oh. No, no. I’m sorry. Really, I’m sorry for disappointing you and I’m sorry for letting you down. I love our life together. You know? I love waking up with you in the morning. Love going to bewith you. I love going to work and coming home with you, and… I just don’t want to… I don’t want to lose this wonderful life that we built together.
Ridge: What are you doing right now? What are you talking about? We’re good. There’s not a single thing that would make me walk out the door.
Ridge: Okay? Okay.
Liam: So you’re– you’re serious right now? Deacon? Brooke was kissing deacon.
