Ridge returns home to find Gaby waiting for Taylor and Thomas to return from the kitchen with some ice cream. Ridge asks why she's there, Taylor explains that she invited Gaby to stay there to appease the INS official. Ridge guesses they'll be sleeping with each other but Thomas claims he wants to help her get into college. After leaking Bridget's secret, Stephanie tells Eric that Brooke is the reason that she's not happy she's pregnant with Nick's child. Nick and Brooke quickly approach Bridget as she enters, assuring her that the candle lit dinner was meant for her, not Brooke. Nick insists that they are aware of her feelings about their friendship and have agreed to be "sensitive" to her feelings in the future. Outraged, Bridget orders her mother to go upstairs and put more clothes on. Bridget then lays into Nick for betraying her, admitting she saw him lying in bed with Hope and her mother. She adds that she saw him with Brooke at the hospital, staring at each other and knows that they are connected. Nick counters that they discussed this and have decided to say "goodbye" to those feelings as of tonight. When she asks if he was lying about wanting to marry her, Brooke returns and tells her daughter to blame her, not Nick. Instead, Bridget points out that she already promised that she wouldn't interfere with her relationships anymore, especially after Deacon. Nick argues that Brooke was worried about Hope but Bridget sharply claims she always has a crisis and had to grow up quickly because of her mother's many shocking moments. Bridget insists she won't tolerate this anymore from her mother and then turns to Nick and announces that if he loves Brooke, she wants nothing to do with him..
