Ridge: All right. Douglas is out of the room. I’m gonna need some answers.
Thomas: You’re angry.
Ridge: You have no idea how angry I am.
Thomas: What I did was bad.
Ridge: What you did? You called cps and I wanna make sure I’m understanding this, you called cps andbo changed your voice to sound like brooke.
Thomas: Yes, I did and I’m sorry, but that doesn’t change how much you love my mom, all right? And that’s what you should be focused on today.
Ridge: I believed in you. I thought you were a changed man and you’re not. You did this. You betrayed me.
[ Thomas sighing ]
Brooke: It’s a beautiful day for a wedding. Bet ridge and taylor are exchanging vows as we speak.
Katie: Dad was so disappointed in ridge and his recent behavior.
Brooke: I’m so glad that he stopped by. A surprise visit from him and lucy? I just wish he didn’t have to catch a plane so soon.
Donna: Me too. You know, I miss him already.
Katie: And it was so sweet how protective he was. Wanted to run over there and stop the wedding.
Brooke: If only that were possible.
Sheila: You’re thinking about brooke. You really are distracted, aren’t you?
Deacon: No, I’m just–
Sheila: Why don’t you just admit that you’ve got brooke on your mind and you can’t stop thinking about her.
Deacon: She’s my daughter’s mother. Hope’s concerned about her, which means I’m concerned about her. Brooke’s going through a tough time.
Sheila: Oh, yeah. It must be really tough living in that big mansion all by yourself, accepting the fact that ridge is about to marry someone else.
Deacon: Hope gave me a heads up about the wedding.
Sheila: Well, I’m sure she’s consoling brooke right now, being the dutiful daughter.
Deacon: No, actually. She’s still out of town on business for her line with zende. She wanted to be home with her mother, but brooke insisted that she go.
Sheila: Gosh, well, you know, I hope she doesn’t spiral out of control with her gone and expect you to go over there and wipe her tears.
Deacon: If she needs me, I’m there.
Sheila: I need you, right here, deacon.
Deacon: It’s so weird because I– I wouldn’t have thought that, the way that you slip out in that disguise every now and then. Yeah, I know all about that. Are you trying to get caught?
Sheila: Don’t worry about it.
Deacon: Where do you go anyway?
Sheila: I said don’t worry about it. And you know, don’t– don’t worry about brooke either because she’s gonna survive. This isn’t the first time she’s lost her darling ridge.
Brooke: How would I survive without the support of my family.
Katie: Oh, it’s what we do. We lean on each other.
Brooke: I have to be honest with you about something, katie. It’s something that bill said earlier.
Katie: Oh, I– uh, I know. You don’t have to say it. He made a pitch for you. I know.
Brooke: He told you?
Katie: No, I overheard bill and carter.
Donna: Carter, what?
Katie: Oh, right, carter. He– he came by because he was apparently picking something up for the wedding? I don’t know, maybe something for ridge or the ceremony. Anyway, I overheard bill and carter talking and I guess carter overheard bill trying to reel you in.
Brooke: Oh, my god.
Katie: And then he heard you shutting bill down and then he heard bill asking me to take him back.
Donna: Oh, my god.
Donna: That is so shady! What?
Katie: Yeah. I– anyway, carter called him out on it and he said… some very sweet things in my defense. I don’t know that I’ve really met anyone like him.
Eric: You did this to brooke?
Ridge: I thought you changed. I thought– I thought– I thought you were a better man, but you– you’re not. I defended you to everyone. I was proud of you!
Thomas: I’m still that guy.
Ridge: You’re not that guy! You lie! Every time you open your mouth, you lie! You did this to undermine my marriage. That’s what you were doing.
Thomas: Because you and mom belong together and you know it.
Ridge: Steffy… thank you for being honest with me. You see that, doc? You see your boy? You see what he did? You knew. Dancing is everything.
Sheila: Maybe there’s gonna be a picture online.
Deacon: Of what?
Sheila: Of the nuptials. Ridge and taylor, they’re– they’re both famous, right? There might be a family photo somewhere. Thank you.
Deacon: You’re hoping to see a photo of finn and hayes.
Sheila: Mm-hm. If I’m forbidden from seeing them in real life, I– I think a picture’s gonna be the next best thing.
Deacon: I think– I just think it’s crazy that this wedding is even going down. I mean, the ink isn’t even dry on her annulment papers.
Sheila: Look, it’s– it’s not like brooke hasn’t been through this ten times before, okay? She’s a big girl. She’s– she’s gonna be fine.
Deacon: I just hope she doesn’t start drinking to numb the pain.
Sheila: Yeah, well, that’S… that’s not your problem, deacon.
Deacon: No, darling. You’re my problem.
[ Sheila chuckling ]
Sheila: I know that you’re tempted to go see brooke, but don’t even think about it.
Brooke: You said there was a new man in your life.
Donna: And why did you not tell me about this?
Katie: I was just waiting for things to be a little bit more official.
Brooke: So, it is carter.
Katie: We don’t have to talk about this right now, okay? Not when your heart is breaking over ridge.
Brooke: It’s okay. Just because I’m sad doesn’t mean I don’t want my sisters to be happy. So, tell us more. How serious is this?
Katie: It’s– we’ve just been spending some time together, you know? We’ve gotten close.
Donna: How close?
Katie: Not as close as you’re thinking?
Brooke: Well, I’m happy for you. You deserve all the love in the world.
Katie: We all do. Including you, brooke.
Ridge: You knew. You knew what thomas did.
Taylor: Yes, I did.
Carter: We should give you all some time alone.
Eric: Yeah. We’ll go upstairs.
Finn: Um, I’ll check on the kids.
Thomas: Dad, don’t be mad at mom.
Ridge: How long have you known?
Taylor: I just found out upstairs.
Steffy: I just told mom. And I just found out from douglas, and when I went to confront thomas, that’s when mom walked in.
Ridge: This just happened just now?
Steffy: Yes. Mom’s shocked. She didn’t think thomas would do something like this.
Ridge: But she didn’t tell me. You were gonna marry me anyway.
Steffy: Thomas was pressuring her to keep quiet.
Taylor: No, don’t say that. I’m the one who decided not to tell you, so that’s on me.
Thomas: You know, dad? Today is your wedding day, so maybe we shouldn’t worry about this right now. We’ll deal with it later.
Thomas: Look, I take full blame. Mom isn’t responsible. You know how good of a person she is. You know her integrity. This is my mistake.
Ridge: Did you say mistake?
Ridge: It’s not a mistake. It’s an evil, calculated scheme… carried out by my boy. I’m steve.
Sheila: So, how much time do you have before work?
Sheila: Mm. You’re really trying to woo me, aren’t you? Where’s the– the excitement, the romance? The mystery even. Maybe I should go put my disguise back on when you first met me.
Deacon: No, that’s– that’s good. I don’t need to see that redhead again. She’s dangerous. Sheila, you gotta stop with the field trips, all right? Wherever you’re going with that disguise, knock it off. You’re gonna get us both busted.
Sheila: Nobody even knows it’s me. Besides, I– I picked up a few new wigs.
[ Sheila laughing ] Everyone thinks you’re dead. It needs to stay that way.
Sheila: You know what? I will not stay that way. And before you know it, I’m gonna be free as a bird.
Deacon: Yeah, a jailbird. But you keep dreaming.
Sheila: You know what? I started over before and I’m gonna do it again and the only person sitting here dreaming is you, deacon. Because you don’t stand a chance with brooke.
Brooke: So, he stood up for you. That’s good. What exactly did you hear carter saying to bill?
Katie: Uh, he just said that I deserve a man who would be committed to me.
Donna: Yes, you do.
Katie: Someone who would be true to me, always. And that he was making my happiness his business.
Donna: Carter, okay. A++. Who doesn’t want all that?
Brooke: You really like him, don’t you?
Katie: As I said, it’s– it’s still new. Anyway, I feel bad talking about this today of all days.
Brooke: Oh, don’t worry. We’re just so excited for you. Carter is such a great guy.
Katie: Yeah, he is. I know it’s hard right now, brooke, and it might sound crazy, but… don’t give up on ridge.
[ Brooke sighing ]
Carter: Well, that was unexpected.
Eric: How are the little ones? Are they okay? I hate for them to be affected by this. Are they okay?
Finn: They’re– they’re okay. They’re in the kitchen decorating cupcakes with my mom.
Eric: God, I’m beyond furious. I’m so angry with thomas!
Carter: Clearly, ridge is too. I’ve never seen him so angry and disillusioned.
Finn: I can only imagine how hard it was for steffy, having to call out her own brother.
Ridge: How could you do this? So many lives turned upside down. Look at your beautiful mother. Look at what you’re putting her through.
Thomas: I’m, uh… I’m not making excuses.
Ridge: I’m not asking for excuses. You can’t defend any of this.
Thomas: I’m not. But come on, dad. You moved out of brooke’s like twice in the last year. You’re sick of that relationship. Don’t forget that.
Steffy: Thomas, stop. You’ve already done enough damage.
Thomas: You know what? I got to see you come back into mom’s life, making her happy and you, with our family and we had wonderful moments together. It’s a life anyone could dream of. And I had to get you out of that toxic relationship.
Taylor: You– that was not your place, thomas.
Ridge: I kept asking brooke, I said, “just say it. Just admit to something,” and every moment of silence was another slap in the face. But, she didn’t know what I was talking about. Because it wasn’t her, she wasn’t a liar. It was him. I don’t– I don’t believe this.
Taylor: I should have pulled you aside, ridge. I should have told you. I know.
Ridge: What happened? Hm? What happened to the woman I fell in love with? The woman… that always tells the truth? Where did she go?
Taylor: I don’t know. I’m so sorryE. I am so sorry. (Vo) red lobster. The finer points of fun dining
Katie: You and ridge are soulmates. He will come home.
Donna: He’s gonna be so miserable without you, brooke. He is gonna realize that he is making the biggest mistake of his life.
Katie: I know it seems impossible right now, like you’re never gonna be happy again, but it’s felt impossible before and fate has proven you wrong and it will this time too. You and ridge are written in the stars and no one can take that away from you.
Ridge: This isn’t like you.
Taylor: No. No, I– I– I should have given you a chance to decide what you wanted to do before the wedding. But, I panicked. You love me, right?
Ridge: Of course, I do. So much.
Taylor: And you’ve been assuring me that– that– that we are together because you love me and you want to be with me and it had nothing to do with anything that brooke did. But that’s not true, ridge. The cps call. Okay, listen, I… I made the decision not to tell you about the recording because I wanted to believe that your promises to me had nothing to do with what you thought brooke did to our son.
Steffy: Dad, you have every right to feel hurt, but mom was trying to protect thomas. She doesn’t wanna lose you.
Taylor: That’s true. This is a lot. I, um… I wish I could go back, but I can’T. I– I can only… I can only tell you that I… I don’t want a marriage based on lies. Not from me. Not from you. Not from anyone.
[ Taylor sighing ] I let my emotions get the best of me. My fears. My family. The thought of losing you again when I thought that we had it– we had made it. That we were gonna be okay. So, I don’t know. This is– this is the moment of truth. Right? What do you wanna do, ridge? Do you wanna go on with the wedding? Are we gonna get through this? Because today was supposed to be about new beginnings. It was supposed to be about our kids and our grandkids and everything that we have been grateful for. The chance at– at a life together again. That’s what today was supposed to be about. I– I’ve apologized. And thomas has apologized and I know that it doesn’t make it okay right now, but… are you gonna stand behind your promises to me? Are you gonna make me your wife?
