Ridge: Well, this is a pleasant surprise. Look how pretty you are.
[ Katie laughs ] Thought I’d run into brooke, and I see you instead. Hi.
Katie: Oh, nice to see you as well.U missed brooke. She has an appointment.
Katie: So, I’m assuming you’re going to the wedding.
Ridge: The wedding? Yeah. You heard.
Katie: Yeah, barely. Hope told me that carter and paris are getting married, and I didn’t even realize they were dating, much less getting married.
Ridge: Yeah, it’s all happening pretty quickly.
Katie: Hope seemed to have her reservations, but she said she was going to the wedding to support paris. So, I’m assuming you’re going to support carter.
Ridge: Yeah, he asked me to go, so, uh, I’m going to go.
Katie: Are you okay? You seem a little out of sorts.
Ridge: This whole thing, it– none of it makes sense to me. This whole wedding is weird.
Katie: You’re worried about carter? Well, that makes sense. I mean, it wasn’t so long ago that paris was dating zende, and carter was sleeping with quinn.
Eric: All right, I’m off. I’ll see you later this afternoon.
Quinn: Oh, I was hoping we would have lunch together.
Eric: Uh, no, not today. I’m sorry, honey. Another time.
Quinn: Oh! Maybe, I should take up pickleball. Or better yet, maybe you can teach me.
Eric: Haha, all right. Maybe I will. I thought maybe you’d be going to carter and paris’ wedding today. I’m not going to go, because I don’t want to make it awkward for zende.
Quinn: Oh, no, no, no, no. I’m not– I’m not going to the wedding. No, I– I don’t think carter would want me there anyway. Eric: Why? Because of your disapproval of how quickly he’s marrying paris?
Quinn: Oh, we don’t see eye to eye on the subject, but I just– I– I truly hope he finds what he’s looking for.
Carter: I know this wedding’s very last minute, but I want it to be special. I want the whole theme to be elegant, refined, perfect. Wonderful. Thank you very much. Bye. What?
Paris: I know! It’s bad luck to see each other on wedding day, but I’m just so excited, I couldn’t stay away.
[ Carter chuckles ]
Ridge: Well it’s interesting you’d bring that up.
Ridge: Quinn and carter. The affair.
Katie: Oh, yeah. What a mess that was. Thank god that terrible chapter is over.
Ridge: Not sure that it is.
[ Door knocking]
Donna: Hello? Hi. Hey, you two! My gosh, you look so beautiful. So handsome!
Ridge: Thank you!
Donna: Wow. Where is brooke? Is she here?
Katie: Oh, she’s at an appointment.
Donna: Oh. Okay. Well. Today’s a big day, huh? Your best friend’s getting married.
Ridge: Yeah, that’s today.
Donna: You look amazing. Are you going to the wedding?
Donna: Oh, no, no, no. Um, I have a, uh, an engagement.
Katie: An engagement? Huh? So, does this engagement involve someone special?
Quinn: I don’t want to talk about carter. I– I was hoping I’d get to spend the day with you. Maybe we can make dinner plans.
Eric: No, I don’t think so. Honey, I’m sorry. May– maybe another time, but I got to go. I don’t want to be late for my meeting at the club.
Quinn: Me– meeting? I thought you were going to play pickleball.
Eric: I am. That’s what I meant.
Quinn: Huh. Look, uh, eric, I– I know, I know you care about your health and– and fitness as much as I do. Uh, but I miss you. And I– I- I miss us. And I know it’s– it’s obviously going to take more time for us to get back to the way we were. But I just want you to know that, um, I don’t take your forgiveness lightly. Your loyalty and commitment mean– they mean everything to me. I– I know I have to share you with pickleball, but I’m glad at least I’m the one and only woman in your life.
Paris: I’ve never been happier. You’re the dream I never realized I wanted. So how is everything going?
Carter: We’re getting there. We’re getting there. Have you spoken to zende yet?
Paris: No, not yet.
Carter: Maybe it’s for the best.
Paris: No. But he’s our friend. And I really want him to be there, considering… and– and my mom.
Carter: Any word from her?
Paris: No, not yet. I really wish she was supporting us, but I’m not going to let this get in the way of the best day of our life.
[ Both giggling ] (Vo) red lobster’s seafood summerfest is fire!
Katie: You are seeing someone. I can see it all over you.
Donna: Okay, fine. Yes, I’m seeing someone. And yes, he’S… very special to me.
Katie: Well, I will try not to pry. But I’m really happy for you. I haven’t seen you look this radiant in a long time.
Donna: Well, you know, he makes me happy, speaking of which, actually, I’m running a little late. I– I’m about to meet him. So tell brooke I said hi, okay? See you two!
[ Katie giggling ]
Katie: I have not seen her this happy since she was with eric.
Ridge: And eric hasn’t been happy in a long time.
Katie: What is going on with you? You just seem like something’s weighing you down. What is it?
Carter: Charlie, man. Thanks again for agreeing to marry paris and me. I know it’s very short notice.
Charlie: Wha– come, come, come on, come on. No thanks necessary, carter, you know. Look, you can’t officiate your own wedding, you know, “do you? I mean, do I take paris?”
Carter: I don’t think it would work out too well.
Charlie: All right. Listen, I am more than happy to take off my security hat, and put on my minister hat. Metaphorically, of course. I mean, I don’t really wear a hat. I just– I got a frock that’s back from the cleaners, but, uh, regardless. Listen, with sheila on the lam, I promise you that I will keep one, maybe both eyes, on that door at all times. But don’t worry. I mean, ridge has already hired extra security. I want this day to be really special for you. So you and paris can start the rest of your lives together.
Paris: Are you busy?
Zende: No, I, um, I can always make time for you, I was just finishing up this design.
Paris: You go first.
Zende: I, um, I heard the news. Carter proposed. Your mom told me.
Paris: She probably didn’t have too many good things to say.
Zende: That– that is an understatement. But I, um, I’m really happy for you. Congratulations.
Paris: Thank you. That means a lot. We’re actually getting married today.
Zende: Uh, today?
Paris: Yeah. Yeah. I– I know that it’s really sudden, but that’s what we want. And we also really want you to be there. It would mean the world to me.
Quinn: Thank you so much for joining me for lunch.
Bridget: Of course.
Quinn: Your father doesn’t know that I’m at the club, but I’m telling you, it gives me peace of mind knowing that you’re here in case his heart rate spikes again.
Bridget: Oh, okay, um, quinn, you know you’re going to have to tell him at some point about this health ring and all of your concerns.
Quinn: Yes, I know. I know. I will, and I know you probably hate lying to him as much as I do. I– I’m just afraid that he– he’s not going to tell me something’s wrong until it’s too late.
Bridget: Well, that’s my dad for you. He’s thinking and caring about everyone else and just often neglects himself.
Quinn: Exactly. I mean, your father has cared for and loved me in ways I can’t even articulate.
Bridget: Mm hm.
Quinn: His loyalty. His commitment.
[ Sighing ] I would– I would just, I would do anything for my husband.
Eric: Donna. You look so beautiful.
Donna: Thank you. I– I wasn’t sure if you wanted to see me. I mean, I know you’ve been feeling guilty and– and now with hope, knowing about us–
Eric: No, I shouldn’T. I shouldn’t be doing this. But I can’t stay away from you. Everything you are brings such light and– and happiness to my life. How can I stay away? My moderate to severe plaque psoriasis…
Katie: Okay. Tell me what’s going on.
Ridge: I don’t know what’s going– and, I have reservations about carter and this wedding.
Katie: Well, yeah, it seems to have happened really fast. I mean, he– must love paris a lot.
[ Throat clearing ]
Katie: Ridge, what is it? What’s wrong?
Ridge: He’s not– he’s not running to paris. He’s running away from quinn, and the feelings he has.
Carter: Charlie. I really appreciate your help.
Charlie: Oh forget about it. Come on. Oh, by the way, um, pammy sends her best. She wishes she could be here for the decoration and the catering and stuff, but, alas, she had to go on her knitting retreat.
[ Throat clearing ] But, anyway, we want this day to be really special for you. I mean, after all, pammy and I know all about true love.
Zende: You want me to come to your wedding?
Paris: I do. But you know, if it’s too difficult for you, I understand.
Zende: Paris, when I said all that matters to me is your happiness, I meant it. I’ll be there.
Donna: To hear you say those words to me.
Eric: They’re all true.
Donna: And I feel the same way. I love you so much. But despite how happy you make me, I– I, I can’t help feeling guilty about it. Being with a man who wears a wedding band– oh, two rings from quinn, actually. Look at that.
Eric: You’re right. You’re right. This isn’t right. I– it’s not the man I want to be. The man who cheats on his wife, who lies to his wife. Quinn deserves more. She deserves the truth. I’m going to tell her.
Eric: I love you too much. I’m not going to let you go.
Quinn: Who knew that my husband would ever get into pickleball?
Bridget: Absolutely no one.
Bridget: Have you ever played with him?
Quinn: No! No. I– I mean, I don’t even really come here to the club. You know, this is eric’s domain but I’ll tell you, he comes home energized like he’s a new man.
Server: Hi, can I get you started with something to drink?
Quinn: Uh, what’d you like?
Bridget: I’ll have an iced tea, please.
Server: Excellent choice.
Quinn: I will have the same.
Server: Okay, great.
Quinn: Oh, uh, do you know my husband, eric forrester?
Server: Yes, I know mr. Forrester well.
Quinn: Well, I’m sure you do, I mean, he’s– he’s been here quite often lately.
Server: I’ll get you those drinks.
Bridget: Thank you. Okay, quinn, I’m just going to go ahead and address the elephant in the room. I’m sure you realize that I know about your history with, um, carter.
Quinn: I’m sure you do. My mom told me that carter and paris are getting married today?
Quinn: You know, bridget, it’s– it’s not really my concern what carter does with his life. My focus is on eric. And I hope you know that I am as committed to your father as– as he is to me.
[ Alarm ringing ]
Quinn: Oh, no. Eric’s heart rate, it’s spiking again.
Server: You, uh, ready to order?
Quinn: Uh, do you know where my husband is?
Server: Excuse me?
Quinn: Do– do you know what pickleball court eric forrester is on?
Server: Mrs. Forrester, I’m sorry but the pickleball courts are closed for resurfacing.
Bridget: What? Kids can change mis…
Katie: I can’t believe this. I mea– I spoke to carter when the whole affair with quinn happened, and he– he swore you would never go back there again.
Ridge: He did swear that. And I don’t think he has gone back there.
Katie: Why would he marry paris if he still has feelings for quinn?
Ridge: I think carter’s lost it. But let’s forget about him for one second. What about paris? She doesn’t deserve this.
Katie: You’ve got to talk to him.
Ridge: I did talk to him. I couldn’t get through to him. He’s– he’s getting married to paris today.
Carter: I can’t live
like this anymore.
But make no mistake,
I will always love you.
[ Quinn sighing ]
Quinn: I’ll always love
you too, carter.
[ Knocking on door ]
Carter: You want all the bad luck, huh?
Paris: I just thought you should know. Zende’s coming to the wedding.
Paris: Yeah. He’s a great guy.
Carter: He really is.
Paris: Yeah. Are you okay?
Carter: Yeah. Yes, yes, of course I am. I’ve been waiting for this longer than I can remember. To build a life with someone. I’ve just been looking for it in the wrong places.
Paris: Well, now you can stop looking.
Donna: You’re leaving quinn for me? Oh.
Eric: My heart is racing. I love you. You light up my whole life.
Donna: I– I– I’ve dreamt about this, eric. I have hoped upon hopes, and–
Eric: I choose you. I choose you, if you’ll have me.
Donna: Yes, eric, yes. Yes.
Quinn: The pickleball courts are closed?
Server: Yes, ma’am.
Quinn: So then, where is he? Where’s my husband? He could be having a heart attack as we speak!
Server: Mr. Forrester has been spending time in bungalow #24.
Donna: I love you so much.
Eric: I love you, too.
[ Donna moaning ]
Quinn: Eric? Eric, are you in there? Eric, are you all right?
Eric: Quinn? Bridget? What? What are you doing here?
Quinn: Why are you in bed? What’s going on?
