Amber wonders what happened to change the way Brooke feels about Deacon. She and Bridget also wonder what was bothering Brooke so much that she left town to begin with. Bridget admits that Deacon has been preoccupied lately and they havent been very intimate. Brooke confesses to Deacon that she wasnt thinking straight when she offered him the job. Deacon is disappointed and tells Brooke that this was his opportunity to make something of himself. He insists that he needs the job to keep his mind off her. Brooke doesnt believe they can hide the truth if theyre together everyday and they cant take that chance. Deacon tells Brooke that he made the biggest sacrifice of his life for her, but he needs the job as a distraction so he wont think of everything hes lost. Brooke relents, and Deacon promises she wont regret it. Ridge declares that Rick is going to crash and burn, and Ridge wont be there to pull him from the wreckage. Rick reminds Ridge that theyre all family and theyre in this together. He asks Ridge to put whats happened behind them. Ridge says that the rest of the family doesnt have time to give him on the job training; hell have to get it somewhere else. Ridge gets in Ricks face and wants to know whos been coaching him. When Rick doesnt tell him, Ridge slams him against the wall. Rick reminds Ridge that hes his superior and if Ridge treats him this way at work, Rick will fire him. Amber is stunned when she sees Brooke looking at herself in the mirror and realizes Brooke is pregnant.
