[ Relaxing music ]

Ridge: It’s good to see you, thorne.

Thorne: You too, man.

Ridge: Been too long, brother.

Thorne: I know. I’m glad you called, though. Hopped the plane as soon as I could.

Ridge: Well, you were missed around here.

Thorne: I can see not much has changed. Looking forward to seeing everyone tonight at dad’s party.

Ridge: Yeah, about that.

Thorne: You wouldn’t tell me over the phone, ridge. What is it?

Brooke: Right, well, for what it’s worth, you both look beautiful.

Katie: Well, so do you. I know donna was really happy that we rallied.

Hope: It feels strange. I mean, it feels sad.

Katie: I know. Normally, we’re getting all dressed up because of something fun and festive.

Brooke: We have to make it fun, festive. We have to make it a joyous celebration for eric.

Eric: You’re beautiful, you– you’re an absolute vision.

Donna: This ol’ thing?

[ Both laughing ] You like it? Okay, now we have to get you all spiffed up and get the rest of your outfit on.

Eric: Yeah. You’re right. It takes a little longer to get me all together than it used to.

Donna: To me, you are always the most handsome man in the whole room.

Eric: Well then, that’s the only thing that matters.

Donna: Yeah.

[ Eric coughing ] Are– are you sure? Are you sure you have the strength to pull this party off tonight?

Rj: Wow. You look beautiful.

Luna: Thank you, rj. You’re not too bad yourself.

Zende: So, this party, do we all know the truth about granddad?

Thomas: Wait, you know?

Rj: Yeah, dad told him earlier.

Zende: It’s messed me up pretty bad, man.

Thomas: I’m sorry.

Zende: Hey, I have to apologize for coming down on you so hard. I didn’t realize why you were working with granddad. And I, um– I think it’s really cool that you’ve been helping him out.

Brooke: Thankfully, bridget’s on her way from new york. I just dread telling her about her father.

Hope: Well, we’ll all be there to support her.

Katie: And thorne, too, I– I saw him earlier in the hallway.

Brooke: Yeah, I’m glad he was able to take an earlier flight. I think ridge is telling him as we speak.

Thorne: Well, kristen, felicia and rick are on that safari in africa.

Ridge: Yeah, I know. They’re not going to make it back in time.

Thorne: Well, why did dad change his plans?

Ridge: That’s what I want to talk to you about.

Thorne: Is everything okay, ridge?

Ridge: No. Dad is not well.

Thorne: He’s sick?

Ridge: Yeah.

Thorne: Well, how serious is it, ridge?

Ridge: I guess there’s no easy way to tell you this. Dad is dying.

Eric: Okay. All right. All right. Oh! Geez. No, no, that’s– that’s perfect.

Donna: Sorry, okay, I’m going to get your jacket. Ah, I love this color. Let me have your arms.

Eric: Yeah.

Donna: There you go.

Eric: All right.

Donna: Other arm. Oopsie.

Eric: Can you get it? All right. All right. All right. This is good. Now, what about my hair? I used that hairspray you gave me, but it’s all crispy. So hard.

Donna: Just a little bit. Voila.

Eric: Thank you.

Donna: You look like, um, harrison ford.

Eric: Yeah?

Donna: Yeah.

Eric: All right, I’ll take it.

[ Donna laughs ]

Donna: You are the most elegant and handsome man I’ve ever laid my eyes on.

Eric: Ah, thank you. This, tonight– this– this party tonight, it’s going to be wonderful. One last family gather. Secret works! Ohhh yesss.

Zende: Maybe I’m in denial, but I assumed we’d have more time with him.

Luna: Eric’s condition is worse than it looks.

Carter: Yeah, he just covered it fairly well.

Zende: Granddad’s been here working on his new line. He’s been in great spirits. He’s been cracking jokes.

Carter: Zende, you saw him at his best. I did too. But his condition’s extremely grave.

Thomas: It’s clear that he doesn’t think he has long to live.

Carter: A goodbye party.

Hope: Okay, so katie went back to the house to help donna with eric, ridge is having a few of us meet here, thorne’s already here and now we’re just waiting on–

Bridget: There you are.

Brooke: Bridget.

Bridget: I’ve been looking all over for you.

Brooke: Oh, honey. So good to see you.

Bridget: You too. [ Laughs ]

Bridget: My little sis, it has been a little too long.

Brooke: Little?

Hope: I’m so happy you were able to make it.

Bridget: Me too. What is this occasion, though? It’s clearly not dad’s birthday. It’s the launch of his new line, right?

Brooke: Uh, I wish.

Bridget: Mom, what– what is that look about?

Thorne: Dad’s–

Ridge: Sorry, thorne. Sorry I have to tell you like that.

Thorne: Why didn’t he tell me? Why am I just finding out about this now?

Ridge: He doesn’t want anyone to know.

Thorne: Well, I’m not just anyone, ridge. I’m his son.

Ridge: Didn’t tell me either. Or brooke. As far as he’s concerned, there’s just a handful of people that know about his condition.

Thorne: So, you all are acting like you don’t know?

Ridge: Now you have to do the same.

Thorne: I don’t think I can do that, ridge.

Ridge: Hey, those are dad’s wishes.

Thorne: So, I’m just– I’m just supposed to let my dad go and– and not say anything, ridge?

[ Steffy sighs ]

Steffy: You know about granddad? I am so sorry.

Thorne: I’m– I’m not prepared for this. I’m not ready to let dad go.

Donna: Are you comfortable? Can I get you anything? And– and don’t you dare say a martini.

Eric: No this, uh– this actually helps.

Donna: Good. Hi.

Katie: Are you all right?

Eric: Yeah, yeah. I’m fine.

Katie: Eric, are you sure you want to go through with this?

Eric: Katie, the party is a go.

Katie: Please, eric, please let donna and me take you to the hospital.

Eric: No! We’re going to have this party! The party I’ve been dreaming about. Now, it’s going to be a wonderful party. A party that we’ll never forget. Looking for a smarter way to mop? Try the swiffer powermop. An all-in-one cleaning tool that gives you a mop and bucket clean in half the time

Brooke: I’m sorry, honey. I’m so sorry.

[ Bridget stammering ] I don’t know how this is– I don’t know how this is possible. Has he seen a specialist? Did he get a second opinion?

Brooke: His case has been reviewed by many oncologists and they’ve all said the same thing.

Bridget: There’s no known cure.

Brooke: I know this is devastating news and I’m sorry. I– I didn’t want this to be true. I just wish I could take your pain away.

Hope: Me too. I’m so sorry, sis.

Bridget: I was on the plane today. I got so excited to see you all. Especially daddy. I just really missed him. I really missed him. Now, you’re telling me he’s horribly sick with this disease. And on top of it, we have to put up a front? Like, I’m not allowed to know about it?

Hope: We’re struggling with it too and none of us are happy having to keep up this charade.

Bridget: This is ridiculous.

Brooke: No, this is, um– this is what eric wants. He wants us to all come together as a family and love each other and just have this big, joyous occasion and celebration.

Bridget: A celebration? What?

[ Bridget sobbing ] And they moved the party up. Mommy. Doesn’t have much time, does he? What did they tell him? I don’t know. [ Sobbing ]

Hope: It’s progressing faster than any of us realize.

Bridget: [ Sobbing ] Why didn’t anyone tell me? Oh, daddy. No!

Brooke: I’m sorry. I’m so sorry.

Bridget: How long does he have?

Katie: This all looks good.

Eric: So, do we have everything we need? We have enough wine?

Donna: Even the bottle of wine from your wedding with stephanie. You said you wanted to save it for a special occasion.

Eric: Well, here it is.

Katie: Here it is.

[ Eric laughs ]

Eric: I can’t wait to see this room filled with all the people I love. My friends and my family. A wonderful, wonderful party. Memories etched into my soul.

Bridget: Mom told me everything you’ve done for my dad. Thank you.

Rj: Of course. Of course.

Thorne: Yes. Thank you. Thank you both very much.

Rj: He’s going to be so happy the two of you are here.

Thorne: Yeah, well, there’s no other place I’d rather be than right here with my family.

Carter: Bridget, thorne, my heart goes out to you guys. Well, all of you, really. Eric is such an inspiration.

Ridge: All right, good. He’s all dressed up. So now we can go to a party that we shouldn’t be having, huh? This is going to take a toll on dad, you know that. It’s going to take a toll on all of us. So, let me ask you. If there’s anyone here who can’t pretend that everything is fine, anyone who thinks they can’t hide their grief, then maybe they should stay here ’cause tonight is– is not about grief and sadness. It’s about celebrating a great man, okay?

Ridge: Dad is getting weaker. We can all see that. And he’s going to need us as a source of power. So, this is the performance of a lifetime.

Thorne: I can’t promise that I won’t break down when I see him.

Bridget: Yeah, I agree with thorne, it–

Ridge: Let it out. Let the tears fall. Do it now.

Bridget: Are you serious? This is absolutely ridiculous. How is this world of make believe healthy? I mean, honestly, mom, this fantasy land where everyone is supposed to pretend that everything is okay? Dad is dying, ridge.

Ridge: You think this is what I want? This is what he wants. There’s going to be plenty of time to mourn him when he’s not watching us. So, right now, we need to do this for him.

Brooke: We need to remember how important this is for eric.

Ridge: It’s not going to be easy for any of us. We can do it. We have to. We’re going to bring joy and happiness, look at me. Joy and happiness for him. We’re gonna celebrate him. Can you do it?

Bridget: Of course.

Ridge: Game faces.

Bridget: Okay.

Ridge: Let’s go.

Bridget: Okay.

Brooke: It’s okay.

Katie: I just asked the server to come out with more so when everyone gets here, champagne out of the gates.

Donna: It’s all set.

Eric: Yeah, everyone’s going to be here very soon.

Katie: Uh, do you want me to put this away?

Eric: Would you? Yeah. Yeah, thanks.

Donna: Can I help you?

Eric: Yeah, my coat. Now remember, just not a word about my condition to anyone.

Donna: Yes.

Eric: We’re the only three people that know about it. And rj and luna. We’re the only ones, all right? It’s very important.

Katie: No problem.

Ridge: Dad.

Brooke: Hello. We have some special guests.

Eric: Yeah.

Donna: Oh, my god.

Eric: You’re a sight for sore eyes, the two of you.

Bridget: Hi, daddy.

Eric: Sweet girl. Come here. Ah! Look at you. You’re beautiful. What? You’re here? You got here? Just in the nick of time.

Thorne: Of course, I made it. I wouldn’t miss this for the world, dad.

Eric: You two. My kids. Oh, my kids– my kids are the best thing I ever did in this life. Here you are.

Thorne: We love you, dad.

Bridget: I would have brought logan, I just didn’t–

Eric: No, it was such short notice, so I’m so glad you came. You made the effort and– and I’m so grateful for that. I’m so glad to hear you. You can’t know how much that means to me.

[ All laughing ] Come on.

Eric: Ah, look.

Luna: Hi.

Eric: My talented grandson, there he is.

Bridget: Hi, guys.

Eric: And beautiful luna. You look– you look beautiful.

Luna: Thank you. Stamp of approval from the eric forrester. I’m– I’m so honored.

Zende: Hey, granddad.

Eric: Hey. More talented grandsons. Look at this. My cup runneth over. Hi. I’m glad you’re here, both of you, come here. Yeah, yeah. And you all, uh– oh, you dressed up for me too.

Thomas: Anything for you.

Zende: We knew how important this night was to you.

Eric: And what a wonderful night it’s going to be.

Thomas: Hm.

Eric: Carter, my friend. Come in, come in.

Carter: Hey, uh, thanks for having me.

Eric: Sure. Of course. You’re, uh, you’re family, carter. Never forget that.

Carter: I won’T.

Katie: All right. Who needs champagne? I see one handsome man definitely does.

Donna: So, I hope everybody is ready to party because eric is not wasting any time. He wants to make the most of every single minute that we have together.

Eric: We’re all here to enjoy ourselves and I want you all to enjoy each other. All right, I’m going to raise a toast, one of many toasts tonight, I’m sure. Uh, this is to all of you. Look at you. You look terrific. And I’m so glad to have you here in this– this big old house. You– you warm it right up. I want this evening to be full of happiness and– and music and love. I wish you could understand how special this is to me tonight, so I promise a night full of love and laughter and music and positive energy and that’s what I want you to give each other, and me. Would you give me that too? Okay? So, to, uh– to joy and laughter, hear, hear!
