Bridget is devastated to secretly hear Nick tell Brooke that he will always love her but then a smile comes to her face as Nick goes on to explain that it was Brooke who helped him realize that Bridget is the woman with whom he wants to spend the rest of his life. Bridget enters the Shady Marlin's cabin and thanks Nick for his tender words. After Brooke leaves, the two talk about their love and kiss. Bridget points out to Nick that telling Brooke that he wants Bridget and not Brooke is the first time a man has done that for her. Ridge complains to Eric about Bridget's engagement and both agree they must convince Bridget she's making a terrible mistake. Showing him a design he did before dawn today, Ridge offers it as a gift to Eric and suggests it's actually a job application, asking if he could come back to work at Forrester. Eric quickly accepts the offer. Brooke interrupts and once Eric leaves, pleads with Ridge to stay out of Bridget's decision to marry Nick. Ridge finally agrees to try. Thomas explains to Caitlin that he can't go out to dinner with her but must stay at the mansion and help Gaby move her things into her mother's room. As promised, Gaby starts to sing the song her mother always sang to her but she can't finish it and asks Thomas if he speaks Spanish. Admitting he doesn't, Thomas assures her that he doesn't need to know the words to understand that her mother really loved her. Gaby is unable to hide her emotions anymore and collapses into Thomas' arms, crying over the death of her mother.
