[ Deacon grunting ]

Deacon: Come on! Get–get up!

Brooke: Ridge! Ridge!

[ Ridge grunting ]

Brooke: Ridge! What are you doing? Stop it! Stop it! Deacon, are you all right? It was me, ridge. I was drunk! Deacon didn’t do a thing.

Ridge: He didn’t do a thing? He didn’t do a thing?

Brooke: Ridge, stop it! What are you doing?

Steffy: I honestly didn’t think brooke could surprise me anymore, but she really topped herself. Spending new year’s eve with deacon while my father was out of town, stranded in a snowstorm.

Hope: All right, you’re making it sound like an affair when it wasn’t, and it isn’T. It was one night. There was drinking. Mistakes were made.

Steffy: Oh, please. There is always an excuse for brooke. You know, my father could have been so happy with my mom, but instead he puts up with scandal after scandal with brooke. And now this? Deacon sharpe? I don’t think my father is going to stand for it. I have to believe brooke’s hold over him is coming to an end.

Taylor: Deacon came back that night. He didn’t leave until morning.

Ridge: Brooke wouldn’t do that to me.

Taylor: I don’t expect you to take my word for it. Go ask your wife.

Sheila: You must be psychic.

[ Taylor sighing ]

Taylor: Excuse me.

Sheila: You picked the exact right time to come home.

Taylor: The right time to come home? I’m not sure what that means. But, why are you here, sheila?

Sheila: I just– I just wanted to come over and tell you how excited I was for you. And, in case you didn’t know already, I am team taylor all the way.

Taylor: Happy for me, why?

Sheila: I spoke to deacon. So, I know all about brooke’s latest infidelity, which can only benefit you.&

Hope: I know how you feel, steffy. You barely tolerate my mother because you blame her for ridge leaving your family when in fact, ridge chose my mother. And, I think you underestimate his commitment to her and his ability to forgive her. She messed up.

Steffy: Come on, hope. Stop with the justifications. Your mom reverted to her old ways. She gets bored, I guess and she wants to shake things up by cheating on my dad. How can you defend what brooke did with deacon?

Deacon: Brooke, can you help me up?

[ Deacon grunting ] Okay. All right, thanks.

Ridge: Isn’t it funny? You rush in here and the first thing you do is check on deacon.

Brooke: It’s not what I’m doing, ridge. I’m trying to keep you from tearing each other apart!

Ridge: This guy got drunk with you.

Deacon: I tried to stop her–

Ridge: Shut up! What kind of a man does that? Drink with an alcoholic? Just so you can slither into her bed. And, what kind of a woman defends a man like that? Please, no more. Please.

Allergies don’t have to be


Sheila: And, poor ridge. When I think about everything that he’s gone through over the years, the blows to his pride delivered by the one person who promised to honor him.

Taylor: Sheila, I don’t feel comfortable standing here and bashing brooke with you–

Sheila: And, you know what? I–I wouldn’t expect you to. You’re a psychiatrist. It’s your job to stay neutral. And, just for the record, I am not bashing brooke. I am–I’m simply saying that the truth. I mean, come on, you know better than anybody how many times brooke cheated on ridge and how deep he dug to try and forgive her. And he did, and he would take her back just to have to do it all over again.

Taylor: Sheila, it’s ridge’s life. He makes his own choices.

Sheila: Yeah. Well, I’ll bet you there are a few that he’s– he’s wishing he hadn’t made as–as we’re speaking here. Ridge should have stayed with you, taylor.

Taylor: Well, thank you. I–I guess.

Sheila: You’re good. That calm demeanor, not giving anything away but I know underneath, you have got to be so excited. Your wishes might finally come true.

Taylor: My wishes? What wish?

Sheila: You’re still in love with ridge, taylor. Anyone can see it. I get it and you have history together. Why wouldn’t you want to reunite your family? And now that brooke did her– I just– I feel really confident that you and ridge are going to find your way back to one another.

Steffy: You’re twisting yourself in knots because you’re trying to justify all the shady things deacon has done because he is your father. But, can you really look me in the eye and say that what deacon and brooke did wasn’t a betrayal of my father, that they didn’t disrespect him? Deacon slept in my father’s bed. And you’re going to stand there and defend your mom for allowing that?

Hope: My mother relapsed after years of sobriety. Her judgment was impaired. She doesn’t even remember half of that night, and she’s been torn up about the entire thing.

Steffy: I understand that she relapsed, but that’s still no excuse for brooke and deacon hooking up.

Hope: Are you really going to stand there and act all high and mighty when you too have made mistakes that you regret?

Steffy: This could have been avoided. My father warned you. He warned brooke to stay away from deacon. But brooke ignored it. And, now this happened.

Hope: My father came to see me on new year’s eve, to be with my family. He was at my mother’s house because of me. So, if you want to blame anyone for what happened that night, then blame me.

Steffy: I’m sorry, but I can’t let brooke off the hook. And I can’t imagine my father will either.

Deacon: I think we’ve established that you’re angry–

Ridge: Sut up! Or I swear we’re going to finish this right now–

Brooke: No! Ridge!

Ridge: Why do you do this? Why? Do you not see this dude for who he is, what he’s done to your life? He’s ruined it almost twice already. You don’t remember what he did to bridget? What he did to you? Your relationship with your daughter? How do you stand there and defend this guy?

Brooke: I don’t want you fighting. It doesn’t do any good.

Deacon: Look, nothing happened. Doesn’t that count for anything?

Ridge: Oh, it counts for everything. That’s why you were drinking by yourself? I forgot.

Brooke: You can’t even comprehend how sorry I am for what happened that night. And, I don’t even know how it all happened, but I have to own it.

Ridge: I don’T.

Brooke: What?

Ridge: I don’t want this. I–I… I can’t take this anymore.

Brooke: Ridge, what are you saying?

Steffy: You’re wrong about your father, hope. Deacon hasn’t changed. He’s a snake, he’s manipulative, he takes advantage. That doesn’t make your mom less guilty. She still opened the door to that train wreck.

Hope: For me. She did that for me.

Steffy: Your mom got drunk and she had deacon spend the night in my father’s bed. Stop trying to defend her. It’s embarrassing.

Hope: You know what? Ultimately, your opinion doesn’t matter. It’s only ridge’s reaction that counts.

Steffy: You think he’ll forgive her?

Hope: I hope he does, yeah.

Steffy: Yeah. I mean, why would this time be any different, right? Your mother will do what she always does: She’ll cry. She’ll beg for forgiveness. She’ll say she’ll never do it again. She wasn’t really thinking. But, she and my father are destiny. But, she will do it again. She will play my father for a fool. It’s not right. My father is a good man and he deserves respect. He won’t get that from brooke, but he will always get that from my mother.

Taylor: I want to be very clear, sheila. I am not a home wrecker.

Sheila: Not like some people.

Taylor: I am not out to break up ridge and brooke’s marriage.

Sheila: That’s the beauty of it, though. You don’t even have to. You can just sit there and let brooke destroy her own marriage. Wait for ridge to come back to your arms. That’s what I’m talking about. Timing. I wish I could just sit at your feet and learn.

Taylor: God, sheila. What are you talking about? I–I–I came back because I–I missed my kids and my grandkids and I–

Sheila: Okay. Well, fine, fine. You can call it whatever you want. Timing, fate, it’s all the same. Fact is this you came back at a very precarious time in ridge’s marriage. Maybe his destiny isn’t with brooke.

Taylor: Ridge and brooke have faced many challenges in their relationship, so.

Sheila: Yeah… but everyone has a limit.

Taylor: Brooke made a mistake.

Sheila: You think?

Taylor: Yep, she made a mistake. She was drinking, she’s an alcoholic. She didn’t–

[ Phone dinging ] She didn’t know what she was doing.

Sheila: Yeah, I’m well aware of that. Now, inevitably, one thing leads to another. All the little pieces falling into place.

Brooke: Ridge, please. You have to know that I wasn’t myself that night. I was weak. I take full responsibility. I’m an alcoholic. I fell off the wagon.

Ridge: You didn’t take full responsibility. You didn’t tell me what happened.

Brooke: That’s because I knew exactly how you would react. Hurt and disappointed and mad at me, going after deacon!

Ridge: Poor deacon. Is he gonna be okay?

Brooke: Deacon is hope’s father and you are my husband. I don’t want either one of you to end up in the hospital or worse. He did nothing wrong.

Ridge: What do you mean he did nothing wrong? What does that mean to you?

Brooke: Look, I know you’re disillusioned with me. I get it. I am disillusioned with myself. And, I don’t know why I had that uncontrollable urge to drink, but I did. And, I don’t think I’ll ever find out. God, I just wish I could take it all back!

Ridge: So do I.

Brooke: But you said that you still love me. You said that we can get through this.

Ridge: I do love you. But you’re with him. And you didn’t tell me. We had to find out from a little boy. What am I supposed to do with that?

Brooke: I just want you to be able to forgive me. Please. I can’t imagine my life without you, ridge. Let’s just– let’s just work through this, okay? We can get past this. We can. Together. After my dvt blood clot…

Steffy: I’m sensing you have some disdain for my father.

Hope: What? No. I love ridge.

Steffy: Really? Well, where was all the love when he warned you about putting your faith in your ex-con of a father?

Hope: Ridge was judging my dad on his past when I was taking him at his word in the present. And, it’s worked out well for us.

Steffy: Awesome. Great for you and deacon. Too bad for my father. His heart’s going to be broken again.

Hope: Steffy, I am sorry that ridge got hurt. I am sorry that my mother fell off the wagon with deacon. And I am sorry that I pushed too hard to make everyone let deacon in.

Steffy: I think you should push harder, pull out all the stops. Go on a real campaign and get your parents back together. Because I think very soon brooke is going to be free. My father’s done with this.

Taylor: It is a bit of a mystery. You know, I– brooke–brooke was really committed to living a sober life. I mean, of course, alcoholics backslide. It happens. But I don’t know. Brooke was doing so well for so long. I just don’t know what happened.

Sheila: Well, like they say, “how the mighty fall”.

Taylor: You know, there– there had to have been a trigger. Something.

Sheila: Could that trigger have been deacon?

Taylor: Yes. Yes, of course. Especially if they drank together. Or not. I don’t know. We’ll probably never know why brooke relapsed.

Sheila: Does it really matter? Because the damage has already been done?

Brooke: I won’t give up on us, ridge. I won’T. And you can’t either.

Ridge: I told you I didn’t want this fool in their lives, coming and going whenever he pleased.

Brooke: Oh, god, nothing happened!

Ridge: Nothing happened? He slept in my bed! That is something–

Deacon: Please, don’t lash–

Ridge: Shut up! Stay out of it!

Brooke: Ridge, please!

Ridge: “Oh, please, ridge”. I’m sorry. Did I yell at your boy? I’m so sorry! Why can’t I ever “please,” I said–didn’t I say to you, “please, please keep this wrecking ball away from us? He’s gonna ruin everything”. You know, I have a breaking point. But you just kept going. Right? Maybe you didn’t hear me. Maybe you just didn’t care.

Brooke: No, of course I care. I was trying to support my daughter.

Ridge: How is– how is making out with this idiot on new year’s eve supporting your daughter? Explain that to me! Why couldn’t you just wait for me? Why am I not enough for you?

Brooke: You are, you are enough for me. You’re the only man that I love, ridge.

Ridge: I know I’m the only man you love unless bill spencer comes around the corner flexing at you. Or this clown comes and tells you he’s always loved you. I love you so much but this hurts and I don’t know what to do.

Brooke: I am so sorry. I never meant to hurt you. I didn’T. I’m so angry with myself, I’m so ashamed. I don’t know what made me drink in the first place. And, I just need you to forgive me, ridge, please. This one time. I can’t live without you.

Ridge: You chose deacon over me.

Brooke: No. No, I didn’t do that, no.

Ridge: I told you he was gonna put a wedge between us. I told you he was going to ruin everything. And, you invited him into our house. Into our bed, logan. Our bed. It’s gone. There’s nothing sacred. I love you so much. But, I’m tired and I can’t– I can’t do this anymore.

Brooke: No. No, don’T. Don’t–don’t go ridge, please. Ridge, I love you. Please don’t walk out! Damn it!

[ Brooke sobbing ] Why? Why?
