Intertwined with Nick's legs, Brooke kisses Nick passionately and then asks how much bourbon he drank with Taylor last night. Nick downplays his unconventional effort to help Taylor. Brooke then reveals that Ridge paid her a visit to apologize last night. Dressed as pirates, Hope and R.J. interrupt and boast that they're ready to "walk the plank." Donning his own eyepatch, Nick announces that he's ready to take Brooke and the kids aboard the Shady Marlin for two days for a treasure hunt. Hope convinces her mother to come with them. Mentioning to Sally's he's taking R.J. to the auto show today, Ridge confronts his mother and asks for her help righting a serious wrong. He mentions Brooke's angst because of her father walking out on her mother and asks Stephanie to tear up the paper naming her as the head of Forrester. She refuses to put him and Brooke back in charge of the family business. Ridge claims that Brooke is everything to him and he can't live his life without her. Later, Ridge is upset to find Brooke has taken R.J. and Hope. Dr. Ramirez calls Stephanie to report that Felicia's "holding her own." After he hangs up, Christian takes some grief from Hector who complains that his brother returns from Europe and shows up on his doorstep without a call or note. After his brother describes the case he's working on at the clinic, Hector insists that Christian come to Bridget and Dante's barbecue with him. Once the introductions are over, Christian tells Bridget he's exclusively working with a cancer patient right now. When she brings out Dino, he realizes it's the same baby Stephanie brought to Felicia.
