Eric: I can’t believe I’m actually seeing you. I-I can actually reach out and touch you. Look at this.

Thorne: Same here, dad.

Eric: Yeah. I’m so glad you’re here. It just means the world to me. It does.

Thorne: Well, nothing could’ve kept us away.

Bridget: We would not have missed this night for anything.

Thorne: Yeah.

Eric: I’m just so happy to have a house full of beautiful people.

Thorne: Well, if it’s important to you, dad, it’s important to us.

Eric: Thank you.

Bridget: Daddy.

Eric: Hey.

Bridget: We love you so, so, so much.

Brooke: Eric is so happy.

Ridge: Mmm.

Brooke: Glad thorne and bridget were able to be here.

Ridge: Let’s make sure they keep their emotions in check.

Brooke: Yeah. That’s a lot to ask. You and I know better than anybody, having to pretend for so long.

Ridge: I can’t imagine this house without him. Can’T.

Brooke: I know, but eric is still with us. We need to appreciate every moment we have with him.

Ridge: I know, but I’m– I…

Brooke: Me too.

Hope: Um… well, are you struggling as much as we are?

Ridge: Can you tell?

Steffy: How are they doing?

Brooke: Uh, they seem to be doing okay. I mean, we’re keeping an eye on thorne and bridget in case we need to jump in there.

Steffy: Yeah, bridget seems a little iffy.

Hope: Well, so does thorne for that matter.

Steffy: Well, they’d better stick to the program.

Ridge: We’ll make sure of it.

[ Phone chimes ]

[ Finn sighs ]

[ Sighs ]

Li: Finn, what are you doing here? Why aren’t you at the forresters with steffy?

Eric: Well, here we are.

Donna: What a party. So good.

Eric: I know. Here. Oh, oh… I-I can’T.

Donna: Oh…

Eric: Damn it. All right, all right. I’m sorry.

Donna: It’s all right. Don’t worry.

Eric: Okay.

Steffy: You look awfully dashing tonight.

Eric: Ah, thank you. Let me see you. You’re beautiful as always.

Steffy: Great genes.

[ Donna laughs ]

Donna: Good answer.

Eric: Yeah. Stephanie just grew lovelier and lovelier as time went on. That’S… one of the many reasons you remind me of her.

Steffy: I always tried to live up to her name.

Eric: You did. I think she’s here tonight. I can… I can feel her presence.

Steffy: I’m sure she’s here. I know how much you love and miss her.

Eric: Yeah. Everything comes full circle eventually. I’ll see stephanie again in due time. Hi, my name is damion

Li: It must be so grand at the forrester estate right now. Gorgeous people all dressed up, being elegant and sophisticated, champagne flowing.

Finn: It’s almost like you’ve been there.

Li: So what’s the occasion? Why the big party all of a sudden?

Finn: Eric just wanted to be festive with his family.

Li: Sounding more and more like you need to be there.

Finn: Okay, I will be, okay? I just gotta wrap this up.

Li: I respect your dedication to your patients, but considering everything you and steffi have been through lately, my advice? Call it a night and go be with your wife.

Eric: I know there’s a lot more food in the kitchen. I just don’t want this to go low, all right?

Zende: I still can’t wrap my head around it. I mean, look at him. How energized he is, how vital and full of life.

Ridge: If you look a little closer, you can see he’s failing.

Zende: We still have time with him, though, right?

Ridge: I wouldn’t waste any.

Eric: This gives me so much pleasure to see the two of you here tonight.

Katie: Well, there’s no place we’d rather be. This is the only game in town.

Carter: You got that right.

Eric: You know what else gives me pleasure is knowing that you’re my friend and… and more than employees. You’re– you’re part of this family. You know that.

Katie: I know. Thank you.

Eric: Good. All right, enjoy the party.

Katie: Of course. You too.

[ All chuckling ]

Hope: Well, this is certainly going to be a night to remember.H, and this might be the last time that I get to spend time with my grandfather. I just– I don’t know–

Hope: You have to get through this, okay? Because it’s what he wants, and this might be your last chance to give it to him.

Thomas: It helps, you know, you being here with me.

Hope: I got you.

Eric: Well, don’t you two look elegant– look at you.

Thomas: Hey.

Eric: Nice, nice.

Thomas: Thank you.

Eric: And this, uh… this is good on you, you know.

Hope: Well, it is yours.

[ All chuckling ]

Eric: I love seeing my family all dressed up like this. It’S… it’s really wonderful. I wanted to say something to the two of you. The two of you together is not at all the scandal to me that it is to some other people. I think it’s terrific. You know… if you two make each other happy, go with that, all right? Life is too short not to.

Thomas: Thank you.

Eric: Okay. Hey. My partners in crime are over here. There you are. Hey.

Zende: Hey. I’ll be back in a minute.

Eric: Okay. Oh, you look beautiful. Both of you.

Rj: No, look at you, looking all spiffy. You clean up nice.

Eric: Thank you.

Rj: Of course, of course.

Luna: This party is incredible. I’ve never been to anything like this.

Eric: Well, this is your world now, luna. I mean, you’ve earned it. And I happen to think that, uh, my-my-my grandson feels exactly the same way.

Rj: Well, there’s no

[ Indistinct ] There.

Eric: Enjoy the party.

Rj: Hey, you, too.

Eric: Thank you.

Rj: Yeah.

Bridget: Well, they said that they already got a second opinion. I have one other person I’d like to call and get an–

Ridge: How you guys holding up?

Bridget: [ Indistinct ] I mean… I’m a doctor. I wish I could use my knowledge and expertise and connections to help my dad, but instead I’m not even supposed to know he’S… dying.

>Thorne: Bridge and i have both been away, ridge. We have lost so much time that we’ll never get back, and… what are we supposed to do? Just let our dad go with so much left unsaid?

Bridget: And not to be able to wrap my arms around my dad and tell him what he means to me and how grateful I am for everything that he’s done for all of us? How my heart’s just breaking in a million–

Brooke: Oh, honey.

Bridget: How am I supposed to not start crying? I never stop. And I’m– I’m so scared.

Eric: You look beautiful tonight. You look… no surprise there. You always look sensational.

Donna: Well, I wanted to look extra special for you tonight.

Eric: I’m so lucky to have you. I’m so lucky to have you by my side during all this. You don’t deserve this. You didn’t– you didn’t sign up for this, no.

Donna: I signed up for you any way you come.

Eric: Yeah?

Donna: Yes.

Eric: Okay.

Donna: Hey. Whoa, whoa.

Eric: I need to sit down. Just let me sit down. Okay. Uh, I just… I gotta– I gotta sit down. Little older than I used to be, that’s all. Just gonna rest for dinner.

Donna: I’ll get you some water, okay?

Eric: Okay. Yeah, please.

[ Steffy sighs ]

Steffy: Oh, granddad. I’m so sorry.

Eric: Wha– sorry about what? Finn’s absence. I don’t know why he’s not here.

Eric: He probably has some kind of an emergency. It’s kind of– it’s-it’s a– it happens when you’re a doctor.

Steffy: I know, but I really wanted– I want him here.

Eric: You married a remarkable man, you know?

Steffy: I did.

Eric: I can see how happy he makes you. That’s all I want for my beautiful granddaughter. That’s all I want.

Li: You love steffy.

Finn: It’s never a question.

Li: Well, just wanted to make sure your priorities are straight.

Finn: Mom, I told you, okay? I’m working on something.

Li: It can’t wait? This is clearly an important night for steffy and her family.

Finn: I realize that. More than you know.

Li: What does that mean? You keeping something from me?

Luna: It’s gorgeous. It’s beautiful.

Eric: Luna’s been an extraordinary addition.

Bridget: Yeah, especially for this one here, huh, rj?

[ Rj laughs ]

Eric: I’m delighted you two found each other. I think it’s a great pairing. It really is. I think you have a– you have a wonderful future ahead of you.

Brooke: You’re being so brave.

Donna: Because I’m– I’m terrified.

Katie: No one would ever know it.

Brooke: You’re doing eric proud. You’re giving him everything he wants and needs to make this transition as easy as possible.

Donna: Yeah. What am I gonna do when he’s gone?

Zende: Granddad looks like he’s really enjoying himself.

Carter: Yeah. He’s in his element. Eric has the right to go out the way he wants. He’s earned it.

Ridge: I’m gonna miss him.

Eric: Yes.

Donna: Okay. You ready to call it a night?

Eric: A night? Are you kidding? The party’s just getting started. Everyone, everybody, everybody having a good time, yes?

All: Yes.

Eric: All right, come on, let’s kick it up a notch. All right, what do we need? Thomas, a forrester martini for me, if you will. And, zende, uh, you’re in charge of music.

Zende: On it. I’m on it.

Eric: Come on.

Donna: You sure?

Eric: Huh?

Donna: You’re sure?

Eric: Yeah. We need some music. I want to dance with you. I want to have you in my arms one last time.

[ Phone vibrating ]

Finn: Hey, babe.

Steffy: Hey, what’s going on? Are you on your way?

Finn: Sorry, I’m still at the hospital.

Steffy: What are you doing?

Finn: I’m just, I’m finishing up some work. I’m-I’m sorry. It’s– it’s important.

Steffy: Just please get here.

Finn: I promise, as soon as I can.

[ Steffy sighs ]

Thorne: Hey, is everything all right?

Steffy: Yeah. I just wish my husband would hurry up and get here.

Thomas: Thank you for being here with me tonight. I don’t know how I’d get through this without you.

Hope: Well, we’re helping each other.

Thomas: Look at him. Every time I do, it… makes me want to cry.

Hope: I know. But we can’T. We have to stay strong for him.

Thomas: And for each other.

Hope: That too.

Carter: At least we can say we gave eric the celebration he wanted.

Katie: Love and laughter right here in one room.

Carter: It’ll never be the same once he’s gone.

Katie: Well, let’s not think about that right now. Let’s just be grateful that he’s here.

Rj: You know, I’m just realizing. Nobody wanted this party, and it turns out it’s exactly what everyone needed. They just needed to come together in granddad’s name.

Luna: Well, I’m honored to be included.

Rj: Get used to it.

Brooke: Some party, huh?

Ridge: You can say that again.

Brooke: You all right?

Ridge: Yeah. He’s the best man I know. Whatever he needs, whatever he wants… I’m gonna make sure he gets it.

Eric: What’s the matter?

[ Donna gasps, eric groans ]

Donna: Eric!

Ridge: Dad, you okay?

Eric: Yeah. Yeah, I’m okay. It’s the, uh, champagne talking I guess.

[ Eric, donna chuckle ] I’m okay. Guess I’m gotta rethink that martini order. Uh, zende, turn off the– cut the music off, will you, please? Uh, everybody, uh, come here. Come here. Gather round. Come on. You didn’t think you were gonna get away with not having cut the music off, will you, please? Uh, everybody, uh, come here. Come here. Gather round. Come on. You didn’t think you were gonna get away with not having a little speech of mine. This is exactly what I needed and what I wanted. It’s a dream come true. Seeing all your beautiful faces, smiling and happy.

[ Chuckling ]

Eric: Thank you. You have no idea what it means to me. I know I hit you pretty hard. It was a big surprise to say, “there’s a party. Hurry up. We’re gonna have a party.” And-and-and you all showed up. I love you for that. So thank you for giving me this-this-this wonderful this wonderful evening I’ll– I’ll never forget as long as I live. Give me a kiss. Give me a kiss.
