[ Upbeat music ]

Rj: Good morning.

Luna: Have you been awake long?

Rj: A while.

Luna: What? You’ve just been watching me?

Rj: It’s just really hard not to.

Luna: Last night was…

Rj: Yeah, it sure was.

Luna: It’s more than I could have ever dreamed of.

[ Eric sighs ]

Donna: Hey. Are you hungry?

Eric: Uh, no. Actually, thanks. Not right now. Not right now.

Ridge: Hey.

Eric: Shouldn’t you two be at the office? Don’t you have that big important meeting with ronaldo this morning?

Ridge: How do you know about that?

Brooke: Are you spying on us?

Eric: Yeah, if you’d let me come into the office, I wouldn’t have to.

Ridge: We’d love to have you in the office. It’s not the same without you there.

Eric: I should certainly hope not. +Brooke: We do miss you and your sunny disposition. But there is this issue of your health.

Eric: Yes, we should be getting some news about that pretty soon. Finn’s on his way over here with my… my long-term prognosis. But then you two already know that, don’t you? That’s why they’re here, isn’t it?

Donna: Because we said no more secrets.

Eric: Yeah. Well… I’m happy for the company. I’m just hoping for some good news.

Ridge: Dad, you fought hard. You deserve this.

Finn: Hey, eric. I… I just let myself in.

Eric: We’re expecting you. I need to hear this news. What’s the… what’s my long-term prognosis?

Luna: Mm.

Rj: What? What is it? What– what’s wrong? Are you– you don’t need to check your breath. You’re fine. Hey, luna. Seriously, it’s okay. Come on, with how close we are after last night?

Luna: Well, I wouldn’t want to do anything to turn you off.

Rj: Turn– that is impossible. Okay? You’re stuck with me.

Finn: So, I met with the medical team.

Eric: And?

Finn: And, you know, as you know, we’ve… had a battery of extensive testing.

Eric: So, what is it? I mean, am I gonna get better? I’m gonna get back to full strength? Am I– how’s my quality of life gonna be? What–

Finn: Eric, your markers are right in line.

[ Donna gasps ] They’re better than what we had hoped.

Donna: Oh! Crack the science of stronger hair.

Rj: How do you feel?

Luna: Um, truthfully?

Rj: Yeah?

Luna: I don’t really know how to put it into words. Like… all of these emotions are hitting me at the same time. The… waking up with you in your bed and lying in your arms. Um…

Rj: Go on.

Luna: Part of me wondered if I’d feel the same afterwards.

Rj: The same how?

Luna: I don’t know. Like, maybe I’d feel like I– I lost something? Something special that I’ve been holding onto for years, but… it’s not like that. I mean, it definitely doesn’t feel the same. Like… I feel different. Like… more of a woman. More connected to another person. More connected than I ever knew possible. It was beautiful. You’re beautiful, rj.

Ridge: So, this is it. We can all breathe again. The procedure was a success.

Eric: I– I think this is cause for celebration, really.

Finn: It most definitely is. But small note of caution, you need to remain diligent, okay? As wonderful news as this is, you need to keep on the right track.

Donna: Oh, he will, won’t you, sweetheart?

Eric: Of course.

Donna: Yeah.

Eric: And see, this is exactly what I would expect from a medical dream team.

Brooke: And you’re keeping bridget apprised too, I assume.

Finn: Oh, yeah, of course. And to say that she was delighted and relieved would be an understatement.

Brooke: Meanwhile, you have your whole family to support you.

Ridge: Or whatever else you need.

Eric: Yeah, well, what I need is to get back to work. I need to design. I need to be creative.

Donna: He was up early sketching away.

Eric: Yeah, but not too early, though, I know. I agree that I’m– I’m going along with getting a lot of rest.

Ridge: See, that is your model patient right here.

Finn: What your father has done, the effort, the determination, that’s what’s made the difference. I mean, that’s why he is where he is today.

Ridge: You hear that? The whole medical community is impressed by you.

Donna: Well, you certainly impressed all of us.

Brooke: We are all blessed, eric. It wasn’t so long ago when you were struggling, facing what you were. And in the darkest hour, finn really came through for us.

Finn: Everyone had a part. You know, everyone was pulling their own weight. Especially this guy. Right there.

Eric: Now, finn, you– you saved my life. You did. And I thank you for that. And I’m gonna live this life the best way I can. I promise you that. (Vo) welcome to lobsterfest. Is your party ready?

Eric: And just like that, finn has gone back to the hospital to save more lives.

Donna: No doctor is more dedicated.

Ridge: My daughter found herself a good one.

Brooke: I think we’re all grateful that finn’s a part of our lives, especially since he brought you back to us, eric.

Eric: I have to say, a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I was worried about this. Been a long journey, you know. Every step– every step of it, just so challenging, you know.

Donna: It’s true, but you faced it head-on, and look where you are now.

Brooke: You’re here. You’re here with family. The people who love you.

Ridge: You’re right. He’s loved. Deeply loved.

Donna: Okay, I know how excited we all are.

[ Laughter ] But, um, I really think that you should lie down and rest. You were up at the crack of dawn sketching that.

Eric: Yeah, I was. I’m still invigorated. I mean, that’s what happens when you get good news like this, you know, it’s invigorating and, you know.

Donna: Eric, please, honey bear.

Eric: Look, I want to celebrate this. I– I just feel wonderful. Why– why don’t we, uh… this is cause for a celebration. I want to have a party. That’s what I want to do. Let’s throw a party.

Donna: Okay, I– I understand your enthusiasm and, you know, I’m– we’re all feeling it.

Eric: Good, good.

Donna: But I’m just not sure a party’s a good idea right now. I mean, yes, we got some positive news, but, um…

Brooke: But I think you really need to take it easy.

Eric: I will. I’ll take it easy. I will. But, uh, I definitely think this is a reason for us to celebrate. Let’s have a party. Tonight.

Ridge: He’s right about that. He’s right.

Eric: I am, right?

Ridge: Tomorrow night.

Eric: Tonight. Tonight. Let’s do it.

Ridge: Not tonight.

Eric: Yes. I know it’s short notice and people are gonna have a hard time showing up. It can be small. It can just be us. That would be all right. My… my objective is to celebrate, and I don’t wanna just celebrate me. I wanna… I want to celebrate you. You’ve been standing next to me so close through all of this, and– and– and you’re a big reason that I’m here right now. And so… I love you, donna.

Donna: I love you too.

Eric: So I– I– I… I want you to be there, and I want you to be there, and I want, uh… I want katie to come too. She’s a big part of this too. So katie and brooke and you, the logan sisters. That would be a good party right there, wouldn’t it? And rj. Rj has to be here too. Absolutely.

Brooke: Of course. Yes, rj would love it.

Eric: Well, then, all right. I’m gonna call him right now. I’m gonna call him. Where’s my phone?

Rj: Can I get you anything? You want coffee or something to eat? I can– I’m not bragging, but I can make a very decent omelet.

Luna: Wait, I saw that post. It was, um, right outside of paris, right?

Rj: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I, uh– confession though. I– real life versus social media, I think it took me 11 tries to get an omelet that was, like, postable.

[ Laughs ]

Luna: Thank you. Good right here.

Rj: I’m sorry.

Luna: What?

Rj: I don’t know. I’m just staring at you. Literally, I cannot take my eyes off you.

Luna: I don’t want you to. I mean, I could stay like this forever.

Rj: Oh, yeah? Well, you know what that would mean? That would mean that we never get out of this bed.

Luna: Yeah, I think I could handle that.

Rj: Oh, yeah? You think you could handle that?

Luna: Yeah. [ Chuckles ] I feel so close to you. After last night. Closer than I ever knew possible.

[ Phone ringing ]

Rj: I’m so sorry. I would never answer this right now, I swear. I just– I know the ringtone. It’s my grandfather. I’d–

Luna: It’s okay. It’s okay. Go for it.

[ Ringing continues ] Hey, granddad. What’s up?

Eric: Finn was just here, yeah, and he gave me a clean bill of health.

Rj: Really? Oh, that’s– that’s awesome. Uh, tell me– tell me everything.

Eric: Well, I will, but first things first. I want to invite you to a forrester family party here tonight. I want you to be there.

Rj: Okay. Tonight? Yeah. I’ll definitely be there.

Eric: Good. Any chance luna’s there with you?

Rj: Um… yeah. As a matter of fact, she is. Uh, why?

Eric: Yeah, good. I want you to bring her with you, all right?

Rj: Really?

Eric: Yeah. You love her, don’t you?

Rj: I do.

Eric: Good. Look, if there’s one thing I’ve learned in the past few months is that, uh… in this life is that love is everything. If you love somebody, you hang on to her, all right? Don’t let her go.

Rj: That’s exactly what I intend to do. Thank you, granddad. I’ll, uh… I’ll see you tonight. And– and congratulations again on the news.

Luna: So, was that about your grandfather’s prognosis?

Rj: It was, and he got some great news, which is awesome.

Luna: Oh, that’s wonderful. I’m so happy.

Rj: Yeah. Uh, and, uh, he also said that there’s gonna be a forrester family party tonight to celebrate, of course.

Luna: That’s cool. You should definitely go.

Rj: Yeah. Well, I am. And so are you. ()

Brooke: So, rj’s coming?

Eric: Yes. It looks like luna will be too.

Ridge: Oh, well, she should. She found your trusty stapler.

Eric: Yes, she did. It’s a wonderful thing she did. Yeah, let’s give her a raise. What do you say? Right?

Ridge: Okay, I’ll look into it.

Donna: Okay, okay. I– I don’t mean to keep harping here, but, um, are you sure you’re up for this? I mean, we could just have a party in a week or two.

Eric: No, no, no, no. No waiting. I feel like this has been a long time coming.

Luna: Wait, so fill me in. What happened?

Rj: Granddad asked me if you were here, so I said yes, and then he invited you to the party.

Luna: Me?

Rj: Yeah. Well, it’s not the first one you’ve been to. You went to the last one.

Luna: Yeah, I know, but I just assumed that that was kind of like a courtesy thing. Or because we were dating or because I helped out on the line. So, you’re telling me that your grandfather, eric forrester, specifically invited me to the family party.

Rj: Yeah, he did. You know what else he asked me? If I love you. You know what I told him?

Luna: That you do?

Rj: It’s just the beauty and the brains, it’s just, it’s such a lethal combo, you know? He also said something really wise to me. That he learned over the last few months just how precious love is. And how I should hold on to the one I love and never let go.

Luna: I love you.

Rj: I love you too.

Ridge: Well, donna and brooke, they’re all in. They already figured out the menu for your party.

[ Eric chuckles ]

Eric: No surprise there. It’s gonna be a wonderful party, I have no doubt about that. It’s gonna be terrific. What?

Ridge: Nothing. It’s just, it’s nice to see you like this. Full of life, energy.

Eric: Yeah. I am full of life. Maybe not completely back. You know, I’m not sure that I’m ever gonna be… a hundred percent again, but, uh… I’m gonna do the best I can. I really am.

Ridge: But you do have the one thing that every person wants. You’re loved.

Eric: Yeah. Never gonna take that for granted again, I’m not. What happened to me changed my life forever.

Ridge: What happened to you? Like when you went on your little trip?

Eric: When I went to the other side, ridge. I went there. There was– there was a feeling of love and peace there that I’ve… I’ve never experienced anytime in my life, and it felt… I felt like I was truly home there. Seeing your mother and– and the people that I knew in my life. I felt like I was home there. And that I was loved there. And I just hope to bring that feeling of love and peace… here. To, uh… to the rest of my life.
