After Nick leaves a voicemail for Brooke, Bridget stops him from leaving the Shady Marlin by claiming that her mother doesn't want him to find her. He then calls the Forrester guest house and pleads with Donna to put her on the phone. A crying Brooke refuses and Ridge grabs the phone and orders him to stay away. Upset, Donna lectures Brooke to go to Nick and try to work through her problems with her husband. She also points out to Ridge that the hand he's holding has a wedding ring on it. After Donna leaves, Brooke tells Ridge that Nick doesn't exist to her anymore. Just then, Nick bursts in and stuns them both as he announces that it's not his baby. Brooke stares in disbelief as Nick then turns to order a very talkative Ridge to butt out. Instead, Ridge tells Brooke it's up to her to make a decision. Guessing something big is brewing, Stephanie wants to snoop at the guest house but Eric stops her. Bridget arrives and eventually tells Eric that she's pregnant. He calls her a slow learner for having failed to learn her lesson and is astounded when she admits that she thought it was Nick's baby but now knows it's Dante's. Out near the pool, Donna faces off with Stephanie about her love for Ridge. When Stephanie argues that this is her business, Donna points out that she's a mother who won't let her adult children make their own decisions. Stephanie counters that Donna will never have Ridge.
