Taylor tells him that sometimes it is hard for a grieving parent to explain death to a child and often it is better to have someone less involved explain. Taylor asks Thorne if Alexandria has ever known anyone that's died. Thorne tells her Alexandria knows about death, but has never really had to experience it first hand. Taylor thinks many children Alexandria's age don't understand the permanence of death. Before they can finish their conversation, Alexandria comes running in proudly showing them a "Get Well" card that she made for her mother.

Trying to help, Taylor says either she or Thorne will take her, but her mother can't. She explains that even though Darla isn't coming back, she will live on in their hearts.

She tells Ridge that he and Brooke are the gold standard of relationships and she has never been able to find one that measured up to theirs. Ridge refuses to get into another discussion about him and Brooke.

At Taylor's, Stephanie drops by looking for Taylor, but Phoebe explains that Taylor still isn't back from the funeral. Stephanie worries that Taylor has cut herself off from the family. She tells Phoebe she wants to be friends with Taylor again. Stephanie is concerned that Taylor is blaming herself for Darla's death.
