Brooke: You don’t have to do this, sweetheart.
Hope: I know you don’t approve, mom, but this is my choice.
Brooke: Honey, it’s not a matter of approval. I just don’t think you should give up on your husband. On your marriage. Yes, I understand that you’re concerned about the children. And you should be. All of you should be. But why don’t you sit down with liam and Steffy and Thomas, and you can figure out what times are good for liam to spend with the girls, and what times are good for you to spend with Douglas. That way, you can feel good about what you’re doing for the kids, and you can still come home to your husband.
Hope: Believe me, I’ve thought this through, and this is the hardest decision I have ever had to make. But… it’s the only way it can work. I have to set Liam free.
Brooke: I wish you wouldn’t do this, honey.
Hope: I know. But it’s happening. Carter’s on his way over now with the final version of these, and Liam and I are gonna sign the annulment together.
