Donna: Eric…

Eric: Donna, I love you. I want you to be my wife. I– I want you to marry me. I want you to give me some kind of an answer before I have to sit down here for very long.

Donna: Please get up. Get up.

Eric: Thank you. Thank you. Thanks.

Donna: Yes.

Eric: Yes?

Donna: Yes, of course, I’ll marry you. Yes.

Eric: Okay, okay come here. Come here. Mm.

Donna: It’s so beautiful. Eric… I love you.

Eric: Thank you.

Poppy: I’m really glad sheila’s not here.

Bill: Yeah, that dimwit deacon neither.

[ Poppy chuckles ] It really feels like our place today.

Poppy: I like that.

Bill: Look we found each other again after over 20 years.

Poppy: I still can’t believe you recognized me from across the restaurant.

Bill: I couldn’t take my eyes off you. I was drawn to you, poppy. Look, I’m– I’m not someone who is into a bunch of cosmic nonsense, but I can’t help feeling like there were forces at work reconnecting us.

Bill: You were with luna when I called earlier, right?

Poppy: Helping her get ready.

Bill: You had plans?

Poppy: No, but she did. She’s with rj at the forrester estate. I’ve never seen her so happy.

Donna: That is so beautiful.

Zende: Way to go, granddad. You were lucky she said yes.

Eric: You’re right about that, my boy.

Rj: Like there was ever any doubt.

Eric: No, I don’t think so.

Ridge: You get a second shot at life, you really take it, don’t you?

Eric: Yeah.

Ridge: I wish you all the happiness in the world.

Eric: Thank you, son. Thank you.

Carter: You’re just full of surprises, aren’t you?

Eric: Yeah, I am. And, uh, we have more to come, right? Okay, here we go.

[ Clears throat ] Listen, everybody, I’m– I’m well aware that we don’t have our whole family here, but I love everyone that’s here. Thank you. Thank you for being here with me and with donna tonight. And we have plenty of people here to celebrate a wedding.

Katie: Wait, what?

Eric: Yeah, I mean, we have witnesses and we have an officiant here. So carter’s willing, take a look.

Donna: You what? You want to get married now, tonight?

Eric: Sure, why not? What else are we going to do? You know, we’re not gonna play board games here and look at you, right? Come here. What do you say about that? You want to finish tonight as husband and wife? Come on. 3, 4

Bill: I think that rj is a reliable guy, but if he ever lets luna down, I wouldn’t hesitate to step in.

Poppy: In what way?

Bill: I know that luna doesn’t know who her father is. And maybe to some extent, she never needed one. She had a whole family in you.

Poppy: That’s right.

Bill: You’re not alone, poppy. Luna may not have a dad, but she’s got me. Did I say something wrong?

Poppy: No.

Bill: I’m just trying to be helpful.

Poppy: I know. It’s just you saying these things.

Bill: Yes. Me. I know that luna’s paternity is a sensitive subject. Her unknown father. A man that you were involved with over 20 years ago. Around the same time that we met at the music festival and spent that incredible night together. Poppy… am I luna’s father?

Donna: Okay, my head is spinning. I– I need to sit down.

Eric: Uh-huh.

Donna: First, a proposal. Now, you’re suggesting a– a wedding?

Eric: A wedding, yes. This is where weddings traditionally happen in this family. Right here in this room.

Donna: You’re serious. You– you want to get married right now?

Eric: Yes, I do. You know my new motto. Carpe diem. Seize the day, you know? And I don’t want to waste any more time in my life. Not one more second. Now you’re wearing the ring. And you’ve said that you want to marry me, so let’s do it. Let’s do it right now. Right? Carter’s here. Even he’s willing to do it, are you not, carter?

Carter: You know, when we talked earlier, I didn’t realize you meant everything today. But yes, yes, I would love to.

Donna: Okay, okay, but– but what? Okay, what about– what about steffy and– and thomas and the rest of the family?

Eric: Ah, you know, I– I would fly us off to the amalfi coast if I could, you and me. And then just do it by ourselves, but I don’t think my doctors would allow that. Come on, let’s do it here. I can’t wait, I can’t wait. I want to do it here. What do you say?

Donna: You knew I’d want my sisters with me, by my side, didn’t you?

Eric: I wanted it to be perfect for you, and it wouldn’t be otherwise if they weren’T. So?

Katie: We would be happy to stand up for you.

Brooke: Or give you a wedding.

Donna: I– I– I, um, I– I don’t even know what to say. I mean, it’s just…

Eric: I don’t want to wait. I want to do this tonight. Right now.

Donna: I don’t want to wait either. Yes. Yes. I want to become your wife, today.

Eric: It’s a wedding. It’s a wedding.

Rj: All right.

[ Cheering ]

Katie: All right.

Carter: Here we go.

Katie: Party planning, here I come. This isn’t charmin!

Bill: You don’t have to be nervous, poppy. I want to know. Am I luna’s father? I’m ready for the truth. And all the responsibility that goes with it. You know how connected I feel to you already. And I can’t help feeling that this is the reason that you and I were drawn back together.

Poppy: And maybe we have been. But luna isn’t the reason. You’re not her father, bill. It wasn’t you. It was someone else.

Katie: All right everyone, we have a wedding to put on. So, first things first. Those glasses, rj, clear them. We can have an aisleway this way. You go up there. You know the drill.

Carter: I’m familiar.

Katie: Who’s going to be our photographer?

Luna: Uh, me.

Katie: Perfect. You, head to the back of the house.

Donna: Oh, no, no, no. I don’t really have to do that.

Katie: Oh, yes you do. Don’t be silly. Brooke, come help the bride to be.

Brooke: Oh, okay, yes. I’m sorry. Here? Yeah, okay. Your flowers.

Donna: Oh, honey, thank you. How do I even look? Okay?

Brooke: You look like the blushing bride.

Donna: I do?

Katie: Okay, okay. Witnesses, up here. Brooke, that’s you.

Eric: All right, ridge, up here by me. Here, here. Okay.

Katie: Zende, cue the music.

Zende: Got your wedding march right here.

Katie: And here comes the bride.

[ Mendelssohn’s “wedding march” plays ]

Carter: Welcome, friends and family to the wedding of eric forrester and donna logan. And the fact that it’s happening at a moment’s notice, well, that’s just classic eric forrester.

Ridge: The king of the grand romantic gesture. You are.

Carter: I can’t think of a better statement of love than to propose to the woman who’s been by your side these past months. So, yes, eric, carpe diem, indeed. Now, I’m sure you want to skip to that pronounce you part, but we have to take care of some business first. Is there anyone here who believes these two should not be married? Speak now or forever hold your peace.

Eric: No one better say anything. Really. You sure you want to do this like this? Because I’ll give you anything you want. The biggest wedding in the world and lots of flowers and hundreds of people attending. Do you want any of that?

Donna: Stop, stop. You can stop right there, eric. I want to marry you today. This is the wedding of my dream.

Eric: Mine too. The last time I saw people in this room, it ended very badly. There’s a small part of it that I remember, which was a calm and a peace of a life well lived, surrounded by uh, people who love me. And I love. And mostly by this incredible woman. She’s been standing next to me ever since. Thank you. And I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you. Okay? So let’s get married. Are you… are you ready?

Donna: I have been waiting for this moment, eric. All of my life. (Vo) welcome to lobsterfest. Is your party ready?

Bill: If I missed seeing luna grow up, I’d like to make up for it.

Poppy: She isn’t your daughter, bill.

Bill: How can you be sure? You said yourself the timing is close.

Poppy: But not close enough. This conversation is making me uncomfortable.

Bill: Look, I– I’m not judging you, poppy. It was your free spirit that drew me to you in the first place.

Poppy: I know, and I’m grateful for that. And I appreciate your willingness to help us, but there are no obligations.

Bill: I don’t see it as an obligation. I would be proud.

Poppy: And for caring. It’s always been the two of us. Luna and me, against the world. That’s our power.

Carter: Well, eric, it’s your rodeo. We could skip to the “I do’s”, unless you secretly prepared vows.

Eric: No, I didn’t, but I do have… I do have something I want to say.

Donna: Actually, um, me too.

Ridge: That sounds like vows, doesn’t it?

Rj: Yeah, that sounds like vows.

Carter: Eric, you can go first.

Eric: Okay. I already spilled the beans. You know, I– I already told you how much I love you. Every day is an adventure with you. I love how funny you are and how loving and sweet, and supportive. I like your um, your playful, sort of naughty side.

Carter: Wow.

[ All laughing ]

Eric: It’s your nurturing side that uh, has meant so much to me over these… over this time with you. This has been scary. We were so afraid of losing each other. I didn’t want to leave you. And so, I didn’T. I’m here. And I’m not gonna leave you. I love you. I love you forever.

Donna: Eric, my honey bear. I, uh… the thought of losing you was– was devastating. Imagining my life without the man that I love… it shattered my heart. I’m so grateful for every single, sacred moment that I have with you and I promise you– I promise you, I will never take any of it for granted. Not a single second. My god. I– I didn’t even expect this. To become mrs. Eric forrester like this. I didn’t need it. I didn’t– I didn’t need it, eric. All I needed was you. But for you to propose like this and end up with this gorgeous ring on my finger and… and insist that we get married like this. I’ve never felt more loved in my entire life than I do right now. On the verge of becoming mrs. Eric forrester.

Carter: So this is the part where I usually say something like, the promises you make today aren’t as important as the ones you keep every day in your marriage. Eric and donna, they’ve already shown us that kind of fidelity. So, on to the “I do’s”.

Luna: It’s so exciting.

Carter: Donna, do you take eric to be your husband? Do you promise to love him, comfort him, honor and keep him? For better or worse, in sickness and in health. Forsaking all others, be faithful to him.

Donna: Oh, my goodness.

Carter: For as long as you both shall live?

Donna: Yes, I do. You could’ve stopped a long time ago.

Carter: Eric, do you take donna to be your wife? Do you promise to love her, comfort her, honor and keep her? For better or worse, in sickness and in health. Forsaking all others, be faithful to her, for as long as you both shall live?

Eric: I do.

Carter: Well, without rings, I guess we can uh, skip to the end.

Eric: Well, uh…

Ridge: Yep.

Donna: Oh, you brought wedding bands. Of course you did.

Eric: Well, I was hoping that you’d say yes, so…

Carter: Okay, well, eric and donna, you have pledged your vows. You’ve declared your consent. So, let these rings remind you that even if you only have a moment, you take it. You make it count.

Donna: We will. We will.

Carter: Okay, donna, take eric’s left hand.

Eric: It’s this one here.

Donna: I knew that.

Carter: Take this ring and repeat after me. Eric, I give you this ring as a symbol of my enduring love and commitment to you.

Donna: Eric, I give you this ring as a symbol of enduring love and commitment to you.

Carter: Eric, take this ring and repeat after me. Donna, I give you this ring as a symbol of my enduring love and commitment to you.

Eric: Donna, I give you this ring as a symbol of my enduring love and commitment to you.

Carter: Eric and donna have pledged their vows, pledged their lives to each other and have shown their love to all of you witnesses. It is my absolute pleasure and honor by the power vested in me by the state of california, to pronounce you husband and wife. Eric, you may kiss your bride.

Eric: Thank you. Thank you. Hey.

Carter: And just like that, I present to you mr. And mrs. Eric forrester.
