Ridge strolls in and remembers making it in third grade.

Eric admits he’s worried his son might be feeling untethered this holiday season.

Ridge doesn’t like him worrying. He’s an adult; he should have his act together by now.

His father agrees with that, not that he’s one to talk.

When Ridge is asked what happened, he explains that Brooke and Taylor dumped him.

He was really proud of them for doing something they were convinced was right.

He’ll be okay. Eric is sure of it.

After they head off to bake a cake, Eric tells Ridge that Brooke will be there for her sister.

He’s sure she would want to see him even with what’s happened.

Ridge knows he screwed up. Why would those two women put up with him letting them down over and over again?

He needs to find a way to be a better man.

“I love you, boy,” he says, giving Ridge a hug.
