He says he doesn't want to lose anymore time and apologizes for not planning something more grand. Brooke says all she needs is him, but she needs to know that this time it will be forever. Ridge confirms that when he says his vows he'll be committed - he's determined to put their family back together. She says in her heart, she's already his bride. "Yes!" They kiss.

She threatens to take his promotion back and says it's over between them - not that anything ever started. Katie sighs that Ridge and Brooke belong together. Liam points out that everyone says that, but it's never worked out. Katie says this is about her - she put a stop to it and practically insisted he propose to Brooke.
