Eric goes to Lauren's and flirts a little. He asks if she needs a ride to the wedding. He tells her he is little worried about Ridge trying to stop Brooke's wedding the night before his. Lauren tells not to worry about it. He then suggests that he and Lauren go away together on a little vacation.

Taylor, very angry, tells Ridge that he still has feelings for Brooke. She asks him what would have happened if he's made it on time. He just keeps telling her he only wants to marry her. Taylor then announces to him that the wedding is being postponed until he can decide which woman he wants to spend the rest of his life with. Ridge then goes looking for Thorne to blame him for his mess.
