Taylor: Okay. Okay. I do not understand what is going on, but, um, nothing is going to ruin how amazing this day is going to be, right? Because I am about to marry your father in five minutes.
Steffy: Just prepare yourself.
Thomas: Steffy’s right, prepare yourself to be happy for the rest of your life with dad.
Taylor: Mm-hmm. Yeah, that– that is the plan.
Thomas: Okay, well, stick to it, all right? We’ll worry about our little thing and you just worry about being the beautiful bride you are.
Steffy: Nice try, thomas, but mom needs to know what you’ve done.

Finn: Hey. How are the kids?
Li: Amelia’s working her magic.
Ridge: How is douglas?
Li: Now that you mention it, he seemed a little subdued.
Ridge: Still, huh? That is not like him.
Finn: Well, if you’re worried he’s not feeling well, I can go check him out.
>>Ridge: I don’t think it’s his health, I just– he seems preoccupied.
Eric: He’s probably just overwhelmed with everything that’s going on here.
Li: It’s a big day for douglas’s father, for the whole family. It’s a big day for you, ridge.
Brooke: I can’t believe ridge is marrying another woman today.
Katie: He’s making a terrible mistake.
>>Brooke: Yes, he is.
Donna: Look, we’re here for you. Whatever you need, just– just ask us.
Katie: We’ll get through this terrible day together.
Brooke: Thanks, you guys. I don’t know what I would do without my sisters.
Donna: We love you so much, sis.
[ Knocking at door ]
Katie: Are you expecting someone?
>>Brooke: No. Dad!
Stephen: Sweetheart! Oh!
Stephen: Oh, you remember lucy.
Brooke: Yes, hello.
Donna: Oh, it’s dad.
Lucy: Oh, you girls.
Donna: Daddy! Lucy! It’s so good to see you in person and not on video chat.
Stephen: Look at the three of you, aw, more beautiful than ever.
Katie: And we finally get to meet the lovely girlfriend.
Donna: What are you doing here?
Stephen: We’re just passing through L.A. And we wanted to say hi.
Lucy: Well, we didn’t want to impose, but your dad thought it’d be fun to make it a surprise. And, oh, brooke, we have had a chance to see some of hope’s fashion preview. I mean, it’s stunning. And all the press around it has been so good, and your father, let me tell you, he has been one proud papa. He’s been boasting about it to all of our friends, the logans and the forresters. I mean, you are an unstoppable team.
Stephen: Alright, girls. I know these looks. I feel like I walked in on something. You want to bring me up to speed?
>>Brooke: It’s ridge. He is marrying taylor today.
Ridge: Thank you for performing the ceremony. Thank you.
Carter: I would have been offended if you hadn’t asked.
Li: Shall we get the kids? I assume the wedding will start soon.
Carter: Not without a bride.
[ Clearing throat ]
Taylor: Okay, you guys are freaking me out, okay? I am still traumatized from the last time your father and I tried to get married, so if you need to tell me something, now’s the time.
Thomas: Don’T. You’ll ruin everything.
Steffy: It’s not me, you did this!
Taylor: What did you do?
Thomas: Let it go. Just let mom and dad be happy.
Steffy: Brooke never called child protective services on thomas like dad thinks. This is gloria.
Lucy: Had we known you were going through all this today–
>>Brooke: Oh, no. No, lucy, I’m glad you guys are here.
Stephan: So, you think that thomas had something to do with the end of your marriage?
Brooke: Uh, I just don’t trust him, dad. I don’t think I ever will. Not after the stunts that he’s pulled and the things that he’s done to hope. And he’s made it no secret how he feels about me, that he has no use for me and that he wants to get me out of ridge’s life. Well, here we are. Ridge and taylor are getting married.
Katie: Whatever he said or did worked.
Stephan: Well, it shouldn’t have. I mean it. You’re ridge’s wife. He should have given you, at the very least, the benefit of the doubt instead of running back to taylor and not telling you why. I mean, what the hell?
>>Brooke: Uh, well, welcome to my world. And I mean that literally. Really. I’m so glad that you’re here. Especially on a day like today.
Stephan: I just wish there was something I could do to help.
Brooke: Dad, you just being here and supporting me, that is enough. Thank you. I love you.
Stephan: I love you, too, honey.
Carter: How’s the groom?
Ridge: Never better.
Carter: Yeah. Okay. You seem a little–
Ridge: Carter. What’re you getting at?
Carter: You’re my best friend. I want you to be happy.
Ridge: I appreciate that, I am.
Carter: Okay. Well, it’s your wedding day. I’m here to support and facilitate.
Ridge: I know.
Eric: Shouldn’t thomas and steffy be down here by now?
Li: Taylor seemed pretty ready the last time I saw her.
Ridge: She’s probably having a moment with them.
Finn: I mean, this is a huge day for steffy and thomas, something that they wanted for so long.
Carter: I imagine emotions are running high.
Thomas: Steffy, stop.
Steffy: I won’t let our parents start a life together without knowing the truth. All of it. And I’m not saying you and dad are getting married because the cps call. I know you two love each other, but brooke didn’t make that call.
Taylor: She– she didn’t?
Thomas: It’s a bad idea.
Steffy: Douglas has an app on his phone where you can change your voice and make it sound like someone else.
Taylor: Okay. I need more details, please.
Steffy: Here. Listen.
Agent: Child protective services.
Brooke’s voice: Hello. I’d like to report a child in danger. His name is douglas forrester. He’s at 369–
Taylor: Okay, stop. Why? Why would douglas call cps?
Steffy: No. Someone else used douglas’s phone.
Thomas: 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 forester, is unstable. He has a knife.
Thomas: It’s not exactly what it seems.
Steffy: Don’t lie to our mother, tell her the truth.
Taylor: Tell me now.
Thomas: Okay. I called cps, and honestly, it doesn’t matter.
Taylor: It matters, thomas. It really matters.
Thomas: No, it doesn’t because look where we are. I got the job done. Brooke is gone and out of our lives and you are about to get married to dad.
Steffy: No, thomas. Dad needs to know what you’ve done.
Taylor: Oh, my god.
Steffy: You can’t base your marriage on a lie, mom. Dad needs to know the truth. The world is full of make or break moments.
Stephen: I’m still trying to comprehend the idea of ridge marrying taylor again.
Katie: We all are.
Brooke: Especially me.
Lucy: For him to leave the way he did, so abruptly.
Donna: And with no explanation why.
Stephen: I don’t get it. What could have happened that made ridge shut down on you like that?
Brooke: I don’t know. All of sudden, he just took off to aspen to be with taylor. And of course, I followed, but by the time I got there, I already lost him.
Stephen: And you think thomas had something to do with it?
Brooke: More and more I’m feeling that way, yes.
Donna: Thomas doesn’t even try to hide his disdain for brooke. I mean, he’s constantly putting brooke down in front of ridge at home, at the office. You know, steffy too, for that matter.
Katie: It’s been this relentless campaign by steffy and thomas to get ridge and taylor back together. I mean, I think steffy might have some limits, some lines that she won’t cross, but thomas? Not so much.
Stephen: That guy’s turned out to be bad news for this family. This focused effort on manipulating ridge back to taylor and his obsession with hope.
Brooke: He’s always been a constant source of tension for ridge and me, and I really hate that because he is ridge’s son. I wanna be there for him and I want to support him and understand him, but I can’T. Not after the things that he’s done and obviously is still doing. I mean, somehow he came between ridge and me. And now we’re just minutes away from marrying another woman.
Li: Finn, where did you disappear to?
Finn: I just went upstairs to see what was going on.
Eric: You find out?
Finn: Thomas, taylor, steffy, they’re all together. I was gonna knock, but didn’t want to intrude.
Ridge: Let ’em have their moment. They earned it.
Taylor: No, no, no–
Steffy: Mom, dad needs to know what thomas did.
Thomas: That’s not for you to decide, that’s up to mom.
Steffy: Obviously, I want you and dad to get married today, but I don’t want you to start your life based on a lie.
Thomas: It’s not a lie, okay? It’s information that she would choose to omit.
Steffy: Dad thinks betrayed him by calling cps. That is a lie. It wasn’t brooke. It was you. Dad deserves to know the truth.
Thomas: Why are you so determined to blow this up?
Steffy: I’m not!
Thomas: You have wanted our family together for years with me. You should be thanking me.
Taylor: Thanking you? Thanking you, thomas? Do you realize what you’ve done? Why? Why did you do this? What is wrong with you? You manipulated this entire situation. I thought you had changed.
Thomas: I have changed. I didn’t do this because I’m obsessed about getting a mother for my son or anything like I did in the past. I did this for our family. I did this for you and you and our father. I want our family to be happy. Brooke has destroyed and blown up our family for years and years. And I’m sick of it. And I see that look, all right? I know that you’re disappointed in me, and I am sorry if I let you down, mom. But listen to me. Dad said he wants to be with you because he loves you. Because he loves the woman that you are and the loves the one that you’ve always been. Not because of anything that brooke did. So go downstairs and marry the man that you’ve love for most of your life.
Steffy: I agree with thomas to a point. I do. You and dad deserve this. Our family deserves this. But not like this. Not like this. Dad needs to know the whole story. That brooke didn’t lie. She didn’t make that call. Dad deserves to know the whole truth. Mom, you have to say something. Listen, I’m done settling. Because this is my secret.
Taylor: Oh, my god, thomas, I can’t even look at you. Why did you do this? Why?
Steffy: You know I’m not a fan of brooke, but what you did to her is awful. It was unfair. It was unfair to mom. And to dad. Mom, you know you can’t do this until you talk to him first.
Thomas: Don’t listen to her, mom. This isn’t about brooke. This is about your relationship with dad and your new life together.
Steffy: That will be tainted if dad goes into this not knowing what really happened.
Taylor: Stop, stop, stop, stop, stop. Okay. I– I agree with both of you, okay? I know that your father loves me. He loves me, and– and he’s not with me just because of something brooke did, right?
Steffy: I don’t disagree, but he needs to know what thomas did.
Thomas: He can’t know what I did. Mom, think about it. If dad finds out about it, my entire relationship with him will be ruined.
Taylor: You should have thought about that before.
Thomas: Just forget about this conversation, go downstairs, and move on with the rest of your life.
Ridge: I’m here because I love you. And I want to be with you for always.
Steffy: I love you, mom. And I want you to get married. But you can’t do it until dad knows the truth.
Thomas: He doesn’t need to know the truth. Just go downstairs and get what’s been yours all along.
Steffy: You know what needs to happen, mom.
Taylor: Oh, my god. Oh, my god. It’s time. I don’t know what– what’re we going to do? What am I going to do? What’s going–
Steffy: What are you going to do, mom?
Taylor: I don’t know.
Thomas: Are– are you going to get married or not?
Taylor: Okay, I– I need you guys to leave me alone. I need a moment, okay? I need a moment.
Thomas: Okay. Just do it. Go get married.
Steffy: Mom, not until you tell dad first. Love you.
Brooke: Ridge should be here. He should still be married to me. Instead he’s probably saying vows to taylor. Probably as we speak. Why is this happening?
Ridge: I really thought the music was gonna bring them down. Maybe we should check on them.
Ridge: They’re probably just spending a little extra time with their mother.
Li: Are you excited to see your grandparents get married?
Kelly: I love weddings. Brides are pretty.
Finn: That’s because their hearts are full of love.
Ridge: What about grooms? We don’t count?
Kelly: You look pretty too.
Ridge thank you. Oh, here they are.
Carter: We were about to send out a search party.
Ridge: Is there a problem I should know about?
Thomas: No, no, no, no. Just the opposite, actually, we were talking with mom about how much this day means to our entire family and to all of us.
Carter: Places everyone.
Ridge: You okay?

[ Laughing ]
Ridge: You okay?
