Douglas: Dad’s gonna be so mad at me.
Steffy: Hey, you don’t worry !@ So, thomas really did this? He used your app. He called cps pretending to be brooke.
Douglas: Ya, so granddad would leave her, and marry grandma taylor.
Taylor: You know, I hate to even say this but, thomas, I wish your father would have told me that brooke made that call to cps. I mean, he told me that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me, and he said it had nothing to do with brooke. But I believe him.
Thomas: Okay, mom. I need you to listen to me. Dad promised the reason he wants to be with you is because he loves you. He loves you and he always should have been with you. So, this has nothing to do with brooke or any of her horrible actions, all right? Never forget that.
Taylor: I won’T.
Ridge: Hey, dad.
Ridge: Hate to tear you away from yourself, but I appreciate you having the ceremony here today.
Eric: When did I ever turn down a wedding ceremony in this room? Especially, one of yours.
Ridge: When you don’t approve, maybe?
Eric: I never said that, ridge. I never said that.
Ridge: You didn’t have to.
Eric: Look, I know how you feel about taylor. I do. And if you want to spend your life with her, I think that’s fine. I’ll support you.
Ridge: Tell me about the “if”, what is that–
Eric: If it were brooke, I would support you teeny tiny bit more, because I know how you feel about her. Are you sure you wanna do this? You sure you want to commit to taylor.
[ Sighs ]
Brooke: Are you really doing this to us, ridge? Are you really marrying taylor?
Katie: What about brooke? Ridge is marrying taylor. Now you’ve got another chance.
Bill: The chance I wanted, the one more chance that I asked for over and over again was with you.
Bill: You’re the only woman I want. Come back to me, my katie.
Katie: Bill, I know what happened after brooke came back from aspen. How you rushed over here. Just like I said you would. So, you can’t stand there with a straight face and tell me that you’re not here because you don’t want a second chance with brooke. I think I can read the situation a little bit better than that. My guess is that she turned you down and then, I come in and you’re like, “oh, katie!” Option 2. It was a good thing I walked in the door and not the gardener. I’m sorry, I don’t want to be flip. I don’t want to joke because I care about you. And I always will. We have meant so much to each other, we have been so many different things to each other. We’ve been lovers, husband and wife, and you’re the father of my son. And, and I love the father that you’ve become. I love watching you with him. And bill, I just want you to be happy. I really do. Mmm, and I want to be happy too. I mean, you can’t make me happy, because you’re not happy. You can’t give me what I need and frankly, what I deserve. I deserve a man whose mine. I deserve a man who loves me, and only me and I want to look in his eyes and I want to see that I’m the only one in his heart. That man is not you. I’m gonna go check on brooke.
Carter: Are you kidding me? What you said to katie just now, right after saying the same thing to brooke? Thank god she turned you down. Katie deserves a hell of a lot better than you.
Ridge: Dad, I know you mean well–
Eric: Ridge, are you absolutely certain you want to marry taylor because of brooke’s cps call that she made, are you sure?
Finn: Hey, hey.
Kelly: Grandpa. Grandpa. You’re getting married.
Ridge: I am? When?
Ridge: Good thing I’m wearing a bow tie.
Finn: Is hayes–
Eric: He’s in the den with amelia.
Finn: Okay, great. Come on, kelly. Let’s get you settled with them.
Li: Congratulations. I’m so happy for you and taylor. I can only imagine how excited she is right now.
Taylor: You know one thing that I’m really, really excited about today?
Thomas: What’s that?
Taylor: You and your sister are in the wedding. I am so happy about that. You know, I am so proud of both of you. That you, thomas, the way you’ve turned your life around.
Thomas: Well, you know. You– you have helped me, you help everyone, but you’ve helped me so much. And if there ever was a time if I can every return a favor, I will. All right? You can count on me.
Taylor: I love you so much.
Steffy: You’re certain, douglas?
Douglas: Dad admitted it. He told me I had to delete the app and forget about it.
[ Steffy sighs ]
Douglas: You know, I should have listened to him and kept his secret. But, it’s just not right.
Steffy: You’re right. It isn’T. Don’t you worry about your father, okay? I’ll take care of him. Hi, I’m darlene
Bill: Well, well, well. If it isn’t mr. Nuptials-r-us. Shouldn’t you be presiding over a wedding right about now?
Carter: Shouldn’t you stop lying to katie? She’s a smart, sophisticated woman, bill. She’s not about to be someone’s second choice.
Bill: You have no idea what you’re talking about.
Carter: How do you not get it? How do you not get how extraordinary she is.
Bill: That’s why I married her, twice. And what do you give a damn how extra– oh.
[ Laughs ] Okay. Stay away from katie.
Carter: You have no right to ask me that–
Bill: I wasn’t asking.
Carter: You were just promising–
Bill: I don’t care what I was promising brooke. Katie is my ex-wife. The mother of my child. She is and always will be “my” katie.
[ Knocking at door ]
Li: Taylor, it’s li finnegan.
Taylor: Oh, come in. Hi.
Li: Hi. I just wanted to wish you well.
Taylor: Thank you. Thank you so much.
Li: Mmm. I promise I won’t take too much of your time. I know you probably still have a million things to do.
Taylor: No, no. Actually, I am okay. I’m pretty calm, somehow. I’m actually pulling off a no stress wedding.
Li: As you should. You deserve a relaxing and joyful ceremony. And reception, too. No nasty surprises like what happened to finn and steffy.
Taylor: No. No nasty surprises. Today is going to be perfect.
Li: It is.
Eric: Shouldn’t carter be here by now?
Ridge: He’s actually doing me a favor. He went over to brooke’s, but he should be here–
Eric: Wait, he went over to brooke’s?
Ridge: I have some cuff links that taylor gave me a long time ago and they’re over there, and I want to wear them today for obvious reasons.
Ridge: And I didn’t want to be the one to get them–
Finn: For obvious reasons.
Thomas: There he is. Wait till you see mom. She’s gonna take your breath away.
Ridge: I’m sure she will.
Thomas: She wanted me to send stef in with– where is stef?
Eric: She’s upstairs. She’s checking on douglas.
Woman’s voice: His father, thomas forrester is unstable. He has a knife.
Steffy: It sounds just like her.
Douglas: But it isn’T. Don’t forget, the app can turn any recording into someone else’s voice.
Steffy: Okay. Okay, play me the original. The one your dad made, okay?
Thomas’ voice recording: Hello. I’d like to report a child in danger. His name is douglas forrester. He’s at 369 willow hill road, los angeles. His father, thomas forrester is unstable. He has a knife.
Thomas: Douglas. What have you done?
Steffy: No, thomas. What have “you” done? How could you do this? What the hell? How could you be so cruel? If you’re on medicare,
Carter: Your katie? You think she’s a piece of property, part of your portfolio?
Bill: She’s part of everything that I am. And beyond that, what I think about my wife, is none of your business.
Carter: “Ex” wife. And you should know, I’m making katie and her happiness, very much my business. Especially since you professed your love to her right after you did to brooke. You had your chance with katie, and you threw it away for her sister. She deserves a man who can commit to her, and only her.
Bill: And that man is you? You and katie.
Carter: Well, as you put it, bill, it’s none of your business. Good talk. I gotta grab something and go officiate a wedding.
[ Door closes ]
Li: Oh ridge, your bride looks lovely.
Ridge: That’s what I’ve heard. Looking forward to seeing that for myself.
Finn: Well, won’t be long.
Ridge: Wont’ be long, unless she decides to make a run for it, ’cause–
Eric: I don’t think that’s gonna happen.
Li: Agreed. Nothing is stopping taylor from marrying you, today.
Thomas: Cruel? No, no, no. Come on. There must be some kind of misunderstanding. You know kids and their apps.
Steffy: No, don’t blame this on your son. It was you.
Thomas: Douglas, will you tell her, please, about the app.
Steffy: Stop. Stop lying. Stop it. And don’t you dare take this out on your son. He shouldn’t be punished for telling the truth. Douglas, you did the right thing.
Douglas: I know but, I just wish dad knew it, too.
Steffy: Let me talk to your father. Why don’t you go to the den and hang out with amelia, hayes, and kelly, all right?
Douglas: Okay, aunt steffy.
Steffy: Do you mind if I take your phone? I just want to make sure your father doesn’t delete any of the brooke files.
Thomas: Yeah, bud, go ahead. Hang out with your cousins.
Thomas: Now you’re gonna pretend to feel bad for brooke?
Steffy: I feel bad for your son. Douglas should never be put in this position.
Thomas: I can’t believe he got those files back. He’s a smart kid.
Steffy: Files, framing brooke. How could you do something like this?
Thomas: Yes, I did that and I got our parents back together. What is it with all the fake outrage?
Steffy: Okay. Wait till they hear what happened.
Thomas: No, no, no. Whoa, whoa, whoa. Whoa. What I did is what got our parents to come back together. So, no one should stop that from happening. You shouldn’t do a damn thing.
Carter: Sorry that took me so long. There was a situation I had to take care of.
Ridge: Involving brooke?
Carter: No, don’t worry. She didn’t see me grab those. Those are them, right?
Ridge: Yeah. Thank you.
Carter: It’s beautiful. Again, I’m sorry. I got here as soon as I could.
Eric: No worries, carter. You could have taken as much time as you wanted. We can’t start without you.
[ Laughs ]
Carter: That’s a good point.
Eric: Ridge, you want help with those?
Ridge: Nah, I think I got it. Thank you.
Eric: Okay. Look at this. Look how beautiful she is. Let me look at this dress.
Li: Thank you so much.
Eric: I saw it when you came in, but my goodness.
Li: This is your dress.
Finn: Should we take a picture?
Eric: Yes. Sure.
Finn: Let’s take a picture. Ridge.
Finn: Would you mind taking a picture of us?
Ridge: No, I got it. Nothing to do at all. Okay.
[ Laughs ]
Ridge: Yeah. All right. Here we go. Big smiles, everybody.
[ Laughs ]
Ridge: Okay. Got it.
Eric: Thank you. Nice.
Brooke: This will never make sense to me. Why? Why are you giving up on us, ridge? Why?
Thomas: All you have to do is keep quiet, then mom and dad become husband and wife again. And brooke is out of our lives for good.
Steffy: Something I desperately want, but not like this. Not based on lies and deception.
Thomas: Yeah, ’cause you are are always on the up and up. Breaking into security systems and blocking phone calls–
Steffy: This is different, thomas. You called cps, pretending you were brooke.
Thomas: Okay, yeah. So, the one time that brooke doesn’t actually do something wrong? It would have happened eventually and dad would have gotten hurt.
Steffy: I don’t want dad to marry mom for the wrong reasons.
Thomas: She’s not marrying him for the wrong reasons. He says he loves mom and he want to be with her. Okay? It has nothing to do with anything brooke did.
Steffy: So then, tell the truth. Tell the truth. If dad is committed to mom, then he’s not gonna care if he finds out that brooke didn’t lie to him. It’s not gonna make a difference. They need to know what you’ve done, thomas.
Thomas: Absolutely not.
Steffy: Then, I’ll tell them. Try to stop me. I dare you.
Taylor: Honey, what is going on? I can hear you two fighting down the hall.
Thomas: Look at mom, isn’t she the most beautiful bride–
Taylor: Enough. Stop it. What could you two possibly be fighting about on my wedding day to your father?
Thomas: It’s really not that big of a deal. Honestly, I think we should all just go downstairs and grab a drink.
Steffy: Don’t listen to him. Don’t believe him. There’s something you should know.
Thomas: Let it go, stef.
Taylor: Okay. Somebody tell me, right now, what is going on.
Steffy: It’s about you and dad.
Steffy: We wanted this day for so long. We prayed for it. And now…
Taylor: And now– now, what?
Steffy: There’s something you and dad need to hear. Something thomas did that can change everything.
