Ridge was sure that Brooke was stunned by his flare for the dramatic, and that was why she didn't have anything to say about his elaborate plan to sweep her off her feet. Brooke tells Ridge that the children love him, but he has to know how devastated she was when he walked out on her and the children. What he did tonight, calling the children out to tell them about the dream that they all had at one time, he threw that away and the dream is really dead. Ridge backed off at that point knowing, that for once, he really did some damage to Brooke. She tells him that he just expects after a few weeks, of kicking and screaming, that she would come back to him, not this time. Brooke tells him that she will never forget what he did to her. He asks her to tell him if there is some hope there at all. She looks at him, and says, "I don't know."

Bridget has a lovely dinner ready for Nick when he comes home. She does have a purpose in mind, as they need to come up with a name for their daughter. After Nick's attempt, a bad one, to come up with one, Bridget tells him that since she had so much time to think about it, she has picked one, that she hopes he likes. She has chosen the name, Nicole, after Nick. She can't think of any other name that would fit the child that so much will remind her of the one that she loves. As their dinner ends, Bridget starts to experience very sharp abdominal pains. Nick picks her up and rushes her to the hospital. It is too early for the baby to come, and the pain increases.

Thomas stops in to see his mother. He tells her that he lived with Ridge while she was away, and he knows and understands that Ridge is still in love with Brooke. He tells his Mother, that maybe they are better off, this way. He volunteers to stay with her, but she wants him to go on and be with his friends. He leaves and Taylor sits down on the sofa and cries out loud and calls out Ridge's name. She pours herself another glass of wine. She turns on some music and starts to dance around the room, trying to occupy her time. The phone rings, and Taylor turns down the music to answer the phone. It's Hector and he is calling to check on her. From her tone, he can tell that she is not in very good shape and tells her that he is coming over. She tells him that she is okay and will call him later. She looks at herself, and is saddened by what she sees, Ms. Perfect. As she continues to look, all she can see right now is Ridge, over and over again. She has finished another bottle of wine and sits and cries.
