James shows Conner his tape of Sheila passing out while holding the baby. Conner says that is not sufficient evidence to prove Sheila is an unfit mother. James just wants to hurry the process along before Maggie finds out he and Sheila are engaged. Conner urges James to tell Maggie of their engagement before Sheila does.
Sheila stops by Maggie's to get James' kilt for their wedding. Maggie thinks it's ridiculous the James would marry Sheila. Sheila flashes her engagement ring for proof. Now how ridiculous is it? Sheila really starts to irritate Maggie by saying James is her man, Mary is her baby, and this is her engagement ring. Besides, Mary seems so happy now that she is with her real mother. Maggie can't stand it any longer and comes toward Sheila with both fists. Sheila grabs her before she hits her. While Sheila has Maggie's fists in her hands, she taunts Maggie about how wonderful James is in bed. How he knows what to do with his hands and mouth. Maggie loses it. She throws Sheila against the refrigerator and all hell breaks loose. Both women trade blows, throw chairs, until Maggie finally gets Sheila pinned down on the ground and starts choking her.
Ridge is concerned why Eric isn't back from Italy yet. He probably just needs time to sort out his feelings, Ridge thinks. Clarke drops by and says he is not at all surprised Ridge is engaged to Brooke. Clarke wonders why Ridge doesn't seem happier now that he is engaged to the woman he has always really loved. Ridge should be happy Taylor is carrying Thorne's child, Clarke suggests.
Brooke is at Taylor's making sure she knows about her engagement to Ridge. Brooke is pleased Taylor is doing the right thing by keeping Ridge in the dark about the baby. Taylor says she is starting to have doubts about not telling Ridge. Brooke suggests everyone is be happiest if things remain as they are, Ridge with her and Taylor with Thorne. Brooke makes the point that children can be happy even though they don't live with their biological father, as her children are happy with Ridge. Brooke also makes a point of telling Taylor she had her own doubts about her and Ridge having a future. It wasn't until Ridge said they were destined to be together and they looked into each other's eyes, did Brooke realize nothing will ever come between them.
After Brooke leaves, Taylor wonders if she really meant that little to Ridge. Ridge is also troubled by Clarke's comments that he never really wanted Taylor. It's too late now, she has made her choice and I have made mine.
