“Maybe it’s time. I think you better take me home.”

In this week’s “The Bold and the Beautiful” Throwback Thursday poll, Soaps.com takes readers to July of 1990 when Caroline Spencer Forrester knew she didn’t have much time left and said goodbye to those she loved…

Many are currently anticipating the birth of Rick and Maya’s baby via Nicole as surrogate. Years ago, others dreaded the enviable death of Ridge Forrester’s wife. Caroline Spencer Forrester had been diagnosed with Leukemia and knew she didn’t have a lot of time left. During a party at the Forrester Mansion, she almost passed out while dancing with Thorne. Caroline tried to blame the episode on having too much champagne but Ridge knew better, which forced Caroline to admit it was time to go home – and time to say a final goodbye.

Ridge led Caroline to the door but she turned and weakly expressed thanks to the Forresters and her father Bill Spencer Sr. She made it clear just how much she loved them all and asked for them to do one thing for her when she was gone. As she began to collapse once again, Ridge picked her up and carried Caroline out the door, leaving those watching in tears.
