Ridge: I love you with everything. We can’t do this anymore, we can’T. You will always be my logan.
Steffy: Hey, dad. You’re here.
Ridge: Uh yeah, I thought I’d come in, do some work. How you doing?
Thomas: Just uh, texted mom. Said she hadn’t heard from you.
Steffy: Yeah, when you left her earlier, you said you were going to talk to brooke.
Thomas: What’s going on?
Sheila: Hey, sourpuss. Come on, why so grim?
Deacon: You’ve got to start hanging out somewhere else.
Sheila: Oh, but then I’d miss you in action and I gotta tell you what? That apron is working for me.
Deacon: Sheila, how many times do I have to tell you? We can’t be seen together. Brooke could come in any minute.
Sheila: Well, does that mean that you want to go back to my place so that we can have a little privacy?
Deacon: Mm. Tempting, but I think have to wash my hair tonight and I’m working now, so…
Sheila: Can you take a break? Maybe we can go back to your broom closet because what I want to tell you, you definitely want to hear.
Carter: Zende will never
know about us,
Paris: Don’t you want
to be with me as much
as I want to be with you?
Carter: You are– you’re
amazing, you’re beautiful,
We have to end our involvement.
Grace: Whatever this
is between you and paris,
it ends today or I’m
going to the forresters.
I don’t know how you got
them to forgive you for
your affair with quinn but
I doubt it will happen twice.
Paris: Surprised to see me?
Carter: I am. What brings you by?
Paris: I couldn’t stay away any longer.
Sheila: I’m about to make you a very happy man, deacon sharpe.
Deacon: We are not going back to my room.
Sheila: That’s right, because all you can do is think about your precious brooke, right? Well, maybe, maybe that’s why I’m here. I mean, this pathetic desire that you have to rekindle your relationship with her may not be so far-fetched.
Deacon: Wait a second. Are you– are you saying that you were actually wrong about something?
[Sheila laughs mockingly]
Sheila: Go on! Go on, joke!& I just had a very interesting conversation. I think that door may be open now to brooke.
Hope: Mom! Mom?
Brooke: Oh, honey!
Hope: Mom, what happened? What is it?
Brooke: Ridge was here. He just left. And he didn’t come home last night because he was with taylor.
Thomas: Uh, you didn’t let brooke talk you into giving her another chance, did you?
Steffy: Because, dad, you know how that’s going to turn out.
Ridge: I owed her the truth. So I told her I spent the night at your house with your mom. Not an easy conversation. If you have copd, ask your doctor about breztri.
Paris: Seeing you at work is not the same and I certainly don’t get to see like that.
Carter: Paris this, uh, this won’t work. You and me, it can’t happen.
Paris: You keep saying that.
Carter: And believe me, I wish I didn’t have to. Paris, I can’t deny what I feel for you but I won’t repeat what I did to eric, the way I betrayed him and his family.
Paris: You’re not betraying anyone. Zende is seeing other people, we’re not exclusive.
Carter: But he wants to be. He was going to propose to you.
Paris: Because he misunderstood our relationship, making all those plans when the only thing I want is standing right in front of me. Carter, I want to be near you. I want to feel your arms wrapped around me. I want to feel your body pressed up against mine. I know you want that too.
Sheila: Why aren’t you jumping for joy? I mean, I mean, didn’t you hear me? You were right. The– the argument, ridge’s fit of rage, brooke coming to your defense? That was the end. Ridge is going home to taylor.
Ridge: This situation is painful for everyone involved.
Thomas: And we respect that.
Steffy: But brooke put you in this situation, remember? She’s the one who betrayed you.
Thomas: Yeah, the bottom line is you chose to be with mom and you come back to our family.
Ridge: Wellbrooke’s my family, too. We’re always going to be connected.
Steffy: Yeah but you can’t be with her anymore.
Thomas: Yeah, she broke your trust too many times. I mean, she slept with deacon. Dad, you can’t go back to her. Dad?
Ridge: She didn’t sleep with deacon and I know this is important to you and I appreciate your loyalty to your mother, but I don’t want to answer any more questions. Thanks.
Brooke: Ridge is already moving on. I mean, they’ve been kissing and everything. I can’t believe it.
Hope: I didn’t want to believe it either. Steffy told me that ridge and taylor were together.
Thomas: Dad, you ended things with brooke. Yeah?
Steffy: We don’t expect you to be overjoyed about this. Telling brooke must have been hard, but it is for the best. I mean, you’re coming home to safety and security. I truly believe that.
Thomas: Yeah, and and you believe that, too.
Steffy: There’s something I, uh, I need to take care of.
Taylor: Hey, sweetheart.
Steffy: Mom, mom, it happened.
Taylor: What happened?
Steffy: Dad spoke with brooke, it’s over. I think it’s over between them. Can you come by the office now? Dad needs you. Does sinus congestion and pressure make breathing feel impossible especially at night?
Paris: We’re not committed to anyone else so we could be together, if we want to be.
Carter: Paris, we already talked about this.
Paris: Okay, but you never explained why. I know that you don’t want to upset zende and the forresters. You’re trying to protect my career.
Carter: Yes, all of that’s true.
Paris: But it shouldn’t be more important than the way we feel about each other. Why are we denying ourselves something that feels so right? We could be so good together, carter. We just have to trust this connection and chemistry. Why are you trying to end things before it even starts?
Carter: It’s already gone too far.
Paris: [Scoffs] What, what what does that even mean?
Carter: It’s over.
But I’ll be watching, carter.
Make sure you stay
away from my daughter.
Paris: What’s going on, carter? Be honest. I need to know.
Deacon: So, taylor told you that she and ridge are back together.
Sheila: Why do you do that? Why do you question everything that I say?
Deacon: Oh, because I know how your obsessive brain works.
Sheila: Yeah, but you’re the one that told me ridge walked out on brooke.
Deacon: Yeah. And then brooke went after him.
Sheila: It doesn’t matter because he’s with taylor right now. It worked, deacon. I, I think ridge finally had enough. And with brooke coming to your defense? It just sent ridge straight into taylor’s arms.
Deacon: Wait a second. So, so ridge ran to taylor because of me?
Ridge: He can’t trust brooke anymore. No, she’s made too many mistakes and quite frankly, he thinks that you’re one of her biggest. So, come on. Good things are happening for you, and taylor and it’s all because of your drunken night with brooke.
Brooke: How could this happen? How can my whole world just fall apart?
Hope: Mom, ridge hasn’t stopped loving you.
Brooke: No, no, he hasn’T. He told me he will always love me, hope. He just can’t– he just can’t be with me. He needs peace and stability and I can’t give him that.
Hope: You know that is not true, mom. The two of you have been happy for a very long time.
Brooke: Yes. Yes, we have. So why, why did I do that? Why did I drink that night? Why did I kiss deacon? It doesn’t make sense! And I love ridge. I love him. And I can’t lose him. It can’t end this way, hope, it can’T.
Thomas: Look, we understand that this is difficult.
Steffy: I’m guessing brooke made sure of it.
Ridge: She thought we could get through this.
Steffy: A few months ago, maybe she could have convinced you to try. But things are different now. There’s another woman in your life. A woman who loves you. Always has. You have someone there that you can rely on. I’m amber, I’ve lost 128 pounds with golo,
Paris: There is no reason to hold back.
Carter: There are other things to consider, paris. Other people.
Paris: I can’t stop thinking about you. The night we had, how you held me in your arms, all the things we said to each other.
Carter: Yeah, I think about it, too.
Paris: Then what are you going to do about it? Why are you fighting this, carter? You want me as much as I want you. Don’t you?
Deacon: It’s not that I doubt you. No, actually I do doubt you but it’s just– it’s just hard to believe that ridge and brooke might finally be over.
Sheila: Yeah, well, believe it. Karma works, my friend. Everyone eventually gets what they deserve.
Deacon: So if I finally get a shot with brooke, I’ve got karma to thank.
Sheila: And me. Especially me.
Brooke: I haven’t had a drink in years, and that night I was completely out of control. How could I let it unravel like that? How? It doesn’t make any sense.
Hope: Mom, what happened, happened. And I do believe that the two of you would have gotten through it. But taylor came back to town and then steffy and thomas started pushing for their parents to be together again and…
Brooke: Right. And every second that he spends in that house, every second he spends with taylor, they are going to convince him that that is where he belongs. I just need to remind him that this is where he belongs. He belongs here in our house with me, hope. And if I don’t– if I don’t let him know that, I am going to lose him to taylor for good.
Taylor: So brooke knows that you spent the night at the house with me.
Ridge: I didn’t want her to hear it from anybody else, so yeah.
Taylor: It must have been difficult.
Steffy: And now, you can move on. You said everything that needs to be said. You can finally focus on your future. And mom. And us. I think we agreed I’m going to stay in the guest house.
Taylor: Yes, you are going to stay in the guest house. That’s a smart idea. There are a lot of complicated emotions with this. This is going to take a while, this transition.
Thomas: That makes sense. But dad was not happy with brooke, but he will be happy with us.
Taylor: Okay, I think you’re oversimplifying it just a little bit.
Steffy: But sometimes the best decisions are simple. I don’t think dad realizes that because life with brooke has never really been simple. I mean, it’s always been, like, one crisis after the next, one problem after another. Anyways, that is in your past. This is your future. And I think it’s going to be amazing.
Thomas: Yeah, you see that.
Taylor: Well, this, there’s a lot to this, okay? Your father has endured a lot with brooke. So right now, it’s not going to feel like something to celebrate.
Steffy: We love you, dad. You know you can count on us. We would never let you down. You have a woman, right here, who loves you more than anyone. Dad, we’ve watched you struggle for years, rationalizing brooke’s behavior, making excuses for her, trying to convince yourself that everything is okay. But now it is okay because you have people who truly want what’s best for you and care about your well-being. The strength of this family. Our time has come. It’s time for the forrester family to reunite. We can.
