Taylor: I don’t think it’s asking too much that ridge and me want to spend a little time together.
Taylor: Alone, together. Yes.
Brooke: I get it. Steffy left town with kelly and hayes and you, as parents, you’re concerned about her.
Taylor: Yes. Yes, wouldn’t you be? Uh, especially after everything our daughter’s gone through.
Brooke: Yes, of course. But if you’re second-guessing this situation and if you think she needs more support while she’s away, why didn’t you just go with her?
Taylor: Ah, wow, um, are you suggesting that I have ulterior motives, brooke?
Brooke: Why would you come here with food to see ridge? What is this little scene that you’re creating, taylor? What is it? Something behind this?
Carter: I think about you all the time. I can’t concentrate. I can’t sleep at night and when I do, I dream about you. Wanting you, everything we had, needing you to want me, too.
Carter: I know, I know, I know, I know, I know. I realize that your loyalty is with your husband. But, quinn, for me to stand here and not hold you in my arms, it’s– it’s so damn hard. To remember what we had, and not want that connection, that passion back.
Carter: I probably sound like a crazy man.
Quinn: No. You’re just– telling how you feel.
Carter: Heh! Yeah, to a married woman I had an intense affair with. A woman whose life, whose marriage I almost ruined.
Quinn: Ugh, I’m just as responsible as you are. Maybe more.
Carter: But you moved on. Quinn, you’re back with eric. You’re rebuilding your trust. Me, I’m stuck and it’s like my feelings for you won’t let me move forward.
Quinn: Oh, I’m sorry.
Carter: I’m not. How could I possibly be sorry? To have had what I had with you, quinn, I’ve never felt more alive in my life. That’s because of you.
Quinn: Listen to me. Carter, I– I know this has been really hard for you. I– I hate that for you. But my commitment is to eric. It has to be.
Carter: I know, I know. But these feelings I have for you, I’m always going to have for you, and it’s driving me crazy, okay? It’s driving me crazy more and more every day.
Donna: Guess who?
[ Giggling ]
Eric: Well, I– I might need a hint.
Donna: Yeah? How about… now?
[ Giggle ] How’s my honey bear?
Eric: Well, I’m a lot better now that you’re here.
Donna: Eric… what’s going on?
Taylor: My god, brooke! You’re putting ridge in the middle again.
Brooke: No, I’m not. He’s not in the middle. He’s still married to me. And if it weren’t for sheila, he would be living with me right now.
Taylor: Okay, okay. Let’s pretend that’s true. Let’s pretend that sheila never did anything to you. That night never happened with deacon, you and ridge are still together, and you’re not separated. Now would you still be upset with ridge if– if he wanted to spend time with me because something terrible happened to our daughter and she left town?
Brooke: I’m very respectful of steffy’s situation and I can understand how you’d be worried as a parent. Any parent would be. But, taylor, you can still talk to her. It’s not like she fell off the face of the earth. All you have to do is pick up the phone. Or video call. And ridge and you and all of us will be there for her, and for the kids, no matter where she is. Now that they’re gone, ridge has time to spend with himself. You know, focus on his life, on his future, a future that he committed to with me, when we exchanged our vows with one another. Whatever gives you life
Carter: Look, I know that, I know eric still loves you.
Quinn: He– he’s devoted, he’s loyal, and he deserves the same thing from me. I– I can’t– I can’t hurt him again.
Carter: Look, eric’s important to me too. He’s given me opportunities that I– I could’ve only dreamed of.
Quinn: And you made the most of them. You’re the best coo that forrester could ever have.
Carter: If that’s your way of telling me to concentrate on my job and stop thinking about what can never be then–
Quinn: I’m saying think of eric.
Carter: I am thinking of eric. That’s why I’m not holding you right now and never letting go. Quinn, I’m trying to deny my feelings for you, okay, but I can’T.
Quinn: Okay. What I’m saying is we know what happened before, when we let things get out of control. The sneaking around, the betrayal. We both don’t want that to happen again, right? And I cannot betray eric again. I can’t do that to a man who I trust with my whole heart.
Eric: I apologize. I have, uh, I have a lot on my mind.
Donna: You wanna talk about it? I’m a really attentive listener, among other things.
Eric: Yeah, you– you are good at that, getting me to smile, getting me out of myself. It’s good.
Donna: It’s a gift.
Donna: And I love being able to do that for you too.
Eric: Oh, donna.
Donna: Wha– what is it? Some– are you sure you’re okay? What?
Eric: While I was here, while I was waiting for you, I couldn’t help, uh, thinking. Asking myself, wh– what am I, what am I doing? And I love being here with you, I do. But I can’t, I can’t help thinking–
Donna: You know what?
Eric: About quinn.
Donna: Sometimes thinking is just so overrated.
Eric: It is?
Donna: Yeah. Yeah, even some experts agree. I was just reading about it in a medical journal the other day.
Eric: Uh, uh, you were?
Donna: Yeah, medical journal. Magazine. Okay, I heard a bunch of baristas talking about it.
[ Eric laughing ] See? More laughter, less thinking. You’re welcome.
Taylor: I am aware that ridge made a commitment to you, brooke, you don’t have to keep reminding me.
Brooke: Well, I would hope I wouldn’t have to. But, when I walk in on what I just did.
Taylor: What you walked in on was ridge and me about to share some food. We were discussing our daughter. I– I don’t understand–
Ridge: May I say something, please, ladies?
Brooke and taylor: Fine.
Ridge: Thank you. I moved over here because I’m trying to figure out my life. And I didn’t ask anyone to wait for me to make a choice. I just need time. A lot of things have happened and I’m trying to process it.
Brooke: Ah, that’s true for all of us.
Ridge: Yes. But it’s especially true for the two of us. Our son-in-law got killed. Steffy was in the hospital. Sitting there for days after days, just waiting for her to come back to us. And she’s okay. But our lives turned upside down. Our family is– we as parents, need to spend some time together.
Brooke: Yeah. I get it. So, you’re asking me to leave.
Ridge: I’m asking you to understand. I’ll see you at the office.
Brooke: Mm hm. Goodnight. My lovely husband. With golo, I’ve lost 13 inches in my waist.
Donna: Stealing moments with you like this. Sharing laughter, and– and joy, and love. Yes, I said “love.” You know that you’re always going to be the great love of my life, eric. And I know I– I said I have no expectations, and I don’T. I don’t, as long as I just get a little sliver of you and your time and– but I have to be honest with you, eric. I have to wonder if somehow we could, we could be more. If you and I could– could have a beautiful future together.
Quinn: I know there’s someone special out there for you, carter. Someone who’s going to bring the same passion and intensity to your life that– that I did. But I also know that that person’s name is not paris.
Carter: Maybe. But even if that happens, it won’t replace those moments in the loft. The two of us sharing our most intimate thoughts, emotions, feelings I can’t forget to this day.
Quinn: I can’t either. It would be so easy to get swept up in all of that again– to get swept up in you. But I can’T. I– I can’t be with you, carter.
[ Keys jangle ]
Deacon: Brooke? I saw you drive in. I– I was down at the cabin. I was waiting for hope. She’s not here. Umm, how’d it go with ridge? You weren’t gone very long.
[ Clears throat ]
Deacon: Things didn’t go well?
Brooke: I was really hoping to spend some time alone with ridge. There was a lot that I wanted to say to him.
Deacon: What happened?
Brooke: Taylor happened. She was there with ridge when I arrived. And she was there when I left.
Ridge: Well, thank you again for feeding me.
Taylor: Mm hm.
Ridge: And saving me from quinn’s cooking. I don’t know how dad does it.
[ Laughing ]
Taylor: No – it can’t be that bad.
Ridge: Oh, it’s awful. Last night, we had oatmeal and toast for dinner.
Taylor: No, you didn’T.
Ridge: She’s great in the kitchen. No, she’s not. She’s awful. She’s a good jewelry designer but don’t make her cook.
[ Laughing ]
Taylor: That’s funny.
Ridge: Mmm. But you know what? I’m squatting here, so I can’t really be choosy. You know what I mean.
Taylor: I do know what you mean.
[ Flirtatious laugh ] Hey, thank you, for earlier. Telling brooke that we needed some time alone.
Ridge: I like hanging out with you. You bring me food. You know, we– we talk, we discuss things, and even when we’re just sitting there quietly. I like it. We really had our hands full with our two-year-old.
[ Waves roar ]
Eric: What are you thinking?
Donna: Ah. I was just remembering all that– the wonderful moments that we’ve shared.
[ Glasses clink ]
Eric: You are beautiful.
[ Applause ]
Eric: So many memories we have.
Donna: God, I’ve loved you for so long, eric. And I– that’s never going to change. I– I just, I have to say it. I just– I want you to be happy and I just– I see that you’re not happy and– I’m not a home wrecker, and I just– I–
[ Sighing ] I guess what I’m trying to say is… leave her, eric. Leave quinn.
Quinn: I’ll never forget eric’s ability to forgive me and give our marriage another chance. I owe eric the same loyalty he’s– he’s always shown me. I owe eric my total devotion and fidelity.
Deacon: Are you fricking kidding me? Ridge sent you away?
Brooke: Yes. But– they were talking about steffy.
Deacon: I don’t care what they were talking about. You’re forrester’s wife. I– or has he forgotten that? Ugh, I’ll tell you this much, if you were my wife, I wouldn’t forget. And I damn well wouldn’t send you away. I’d want to be with you every single moment. Just– you know, I’d want you by my side.
Ridge: You know what I like most about chinese take-out?
Taylor: Ah, no dishes to clean up?
Ridge: There is that. But also I can show off my skills with these babies.
Taylor: Yeah. You’re very good at that. Do you remember when you taught thomas?
Taylor: Mm! He was so frustrated. He couldn’t figure it out.
Ridge: He still can’t figure it out. He’s useless at it.
[ Laughing ]
Taylor: You’re right!
Ridge: Wondering where the cookies are, that was always his thing.
Taylor: Oh, speaking of which, come on. Fortune cookies!
[ Plastic crinkles ]
Ridge: Alright. You go first.
Taylor: Me? Okay. Alright, it says “if– if you really want to find yourself, play hide’n’seek alone.”
[ Chuckling ] That is rich and ironic.
Ridge: Yeah. No, it’s uh… it’s none of those things. Uh– okay.
Taylor: Mm hm.
Ridge: “To have a best friend, be a best friend.”
Ridge: Wow, alright.
Taylor: You’re a good best friend. You understand me, like no one else.
Ridge: Well, you get me more than most people.
Taylor: I like to think that I understand how your brain works. You’re a good man, ridge. I know you don’t want to hurt me or brooke.
Ridge: I don’t want to hurt anybody. I’m trying to take my time and I– I know it’s risky because you might just pack your things and go back to the life you had before it, umm. A fulfilled, wonderful life. Well, I don’t– I don’t want that. I don’t want you to leave. My– my world is better with you in it.
Taylor: You know when I– when I came back to L.A., And, you know, we were spending time with the kids and our grandkids, it– it’s exactly what I imagined our life would be like, if we would’ve stayed married. I know you love me, ridge. And you know that I am not going anywhere. Not now. I believe in us. I– I like us. A lot.
