Shauna: I’ve been dying to tell you two newsflashes. One–Thomas Forrester came by after you left for work.
Flo: Oh, god, really? How does he know where we live?
Shauna: I assumed you had an employee file at Forrester.
Flo: What did he want?
Shauna: To tell me newsflash number two. Brooke knows I spent the night with her husband.
Flo: Oh, my God.
Flo: How did she find out?
Shauna: You didn’t say anything to anyone?
Flo: Of course not, mom. Why–wh–I would never– I would never tell anyone. God, you know… I always had this, like, fantasy that the Logan’s would eventually forgive me and just take me back into their family, but–
Shauna: Well, that still can happen. Why not? You didn’t sleep with Ridge… or next to him. Oh, poor Brooke. Stolen granddaughter. Sister in kidney failure. And now this thing with me and her husband, which sounds a lot spicier than it actually was. I know she hates our guts, but I actually kind of feel sorry for her.
Brooke: Shauna, what are you doing here?
Shauna: Uh, excuse me for interrupting.
Brooke: You can’t just barge in here like this. We’re in the middle of a private family matter.
Shauna: Actually, I’m here because…
Brooke: I don’t care why you’re here. We’re about to meet Katie’s kidney donor. It’s just family, so please just leave.
Shauna: I wish seeing me didn’t upset you so much, but I understand, and I will leave. I certainly don’t want to interfere with something so special. I’m sure you have a lot to talk about. And you’re right, Brooke. This is a family moment, a family that includes Flo. No matter what happened, she’s your niece. She’s still a Logan. You know, I look at all of you gathered around Katie and supporting and caring for her, and this is definitely, you know, something that Flo should be a part of. She was very worried about her aunt.
Shauna: It’s true. We both were so concerned, and that’s why Flo wanted to do something.
Ridge: Do something? What are you talking about?
Shauna: Katie, meet your donor.
Brooke: You’re serious? Your daughter?
Shauna: Storm’s daughter, your niece, saved Katie’s life.
Katie: The entire time I’m asleep, I’m gonna be dreaming of you. And your face is the first face I wanna see when I wake up. And yours, too. I had a heart problem.
Dr. Davis: During your surgery, your anesthesiologist will monitor your heart and your breathing. You’ll be on a ventilator. And we have a cardiac team on standby, just in case.
Bill: So, doc, how long will Katie be in here post-op before she can come home?
Dr. Davis: It depends on how well the organ functions and how it reacts to the new anti-rejection meds.
Brooke: So she won’t have a problem with just one kidney?
Katie: Actually, I’ll have three.
Dr. Davis: Yeah, your son thought that was so cool. Katie’s kidneys will be left in place–lowers the risk of antibodies attacking the new kidney, so I put the donor kidney in the anterior of the lower abdomen, connect an artery and a vein from Katie to the kidney, and once we attach the bladder, we close her up.
Brooke: Well, yeah. No big deal.
Flo: Why hasn’t the transplant center called yet?
Shauna: Well, pacing a hole in the floor isn’t gonna make them call any faster.
Flo: This waiting is driving me insane. I just want to know if I’m gonna be a match for Katie.
Shauna: The Logan’s would be grateful to you forever.
Flo: That’s not why I want to do it.
Shauna: I know, honey. I’m just saying your loving, crazy, generous gift would be greatly appreciated. Katie gets a kidney and lives, and you’re elevated from this horrible person to this wonderful person. And who knows? Maybe your goodness will remind Wyatt why he’s loved you most of his life.
Dr. Davis: You need a kidney transplant as soon as possible.: Even though no family members can donate in your case, you’re still on the wait list for a kidney from a deceased donor. Although we have discussed the average wait time–
Bill: We know the average wait time! Three to five years.
Katie: Bill, come on.
Bill: You also said that Katie doesn’t have three to five years! Now you know who I am! It’s just us here. What’s it gonna cost to get Katie to the top of that list? Or some other list? There’s gotta be a separate list–another list that we can buy into.
Dr. Davis: Listen, I know what you’re trying to do, okay? But it just doesn’t work like that.
Bill: Well, it works like that in my world!
Brooke: You leave my family alone, and stay away from my husband!
Shauna: Or what?
Brooke: This isn’t a warning, Shauna. I’m telling you.
Shauna: You don’t tell me a damn thing. Who do you think you are, barging into my house, slapping me across the face, and giving me orders?
Brooke: I’m Ridge’s wife, and don’t you forget it. The Fulton’s have brought our family so much pain already, and Ridge and I are doing whatever we can to repair the damage from your lies. He’s moved in with Steffy, and he’s trying to work things out with Thomas.
Shaun: Wait. Ridge moved out?
Shauna: I don’t know what you’re getting at. And I don’t want to know, so just go.
Thomas: Whoa. Slow down. I have some questions about that night, too.
Thomas: Okay, so, you were sleeping right next to my dad all night.
Shauna: Yeah, I was, and it’s not what you think. I never crossed the line with your father.
Thomas: Crossed your mind, though, didn’t it? How could it not? I mean, he’s the one who sprung your daughter from jail. And now that Brooke knows that you spent the night–
Shauna: Wait, wait, wait. Brooke knows?
Thomas: And I’m guessing she’s not too happy about that.
Shauna: Guess not.
Thomas: Yeah, I can only see her and him going a few rounds about this till they finally break up.
Flo: Do you have a thing for married men, mom? You can tell me. We’re both adults here, I think.
Shauna: Of course I have a thing for married men.
Flo: Because they’re unattainable?
Shauna: No. Because they’re men. I also have a thing for unmarried men. And I have a thing for men who can tell long, unfunny jokes and men who have gray hair or no hair, especially men who keep my Flo out of jail. I don’t want to sleep with all of them, though. Just maybe, I don’t know, two or three, mostly because I feel sorry for them.
Flo: Wow. You know, it’s actually really surprising that I’m not more messed up than I actually am.
Shauna: Yep. It truly is, sweetheart.
Flo: Mom, you– you have become, like, unglued ever since that night you spent with Ridge.
Shauna: I have been a broken person in pieces for a long time. But because of Ridge, I’m thinking of myself not as a mom– no offense– or a Vegas retailer or an accessory to kidnapping. Because of Ridge, I’ve been thinking of myself as a sexy woman again.
Thomas: So you’re clear on what you need to do, right?
Danny: I’m clear on what you want me to do.
Thomas: You can’t back out now. Brooke’s on her way over here.
Danny: To get a belt, not to get a bombshell dropped on her.
Thomas: Brooke’s gonna be fine, okay? It’s just her marriage to my dad. That’s what’s gonna start to crack.
Danny: I never knew you had these issues with Brooke.
Thomas: She used to pretend to be nice to me, you know, so it made it easier to coexist, but now she’s trying to influence my dad against me. I can’t have that, okay? I got to get her out of the picture, and you have all the ammunition to do it. I mean, it works out perfectly.
Danny: It just feels wrong.
Thomas: Well, look. Come here. The favor I’m gonna do for you, that’s gonna feel pretty right. No more of this double duty, doing part-time modeling gigs with serving margaritas to people. You’re gonna be strutting up and down international runways in no time, okay? And that’s your dream, right? I’ll make it a reality. All you have to do is tell Brooke my dad spent the night with Shauna Fulton. That’s it.
Ridge: Well, I, um, I appreciate you coming by.
Shauna: But it’s time I go?
Ridge: It’s– I didn’t say that. I’ve just got a lot of stuff–
Shauna: No, no, no, no, no. I know a dismissal when I hear one.
Ridge: Well, I hope you know, um, gratitude when you hear it, too, because I am grateful for what you did that night.
Shauna: Well, it was my pleasure because it felt really good to be able to be there for you and take care of you, especially after that enormous gift you gave us in helping Flo gain her freedom. I told you I would repay you. Something tells me tucking you in bed is just the start.
Ridge: I’m glad one of us has fond memories of that night.
Shauna: Or any memories. Don’t give me that look. Nothing happened between us. You have nothing to feel guilty about.
Ridge: I’m keeping a secret from my wife, and I don’t like it.
