Xander: Yeah. You, uh — you work fast, don’t you?
Hope: Well, Thomas is very committed to me and to my line’s success.
Thomas: Uh, where you going?
Hope: To change and to make sure that this dress is stored properly. It — it really is special, Thomas.
Thomas: Don’t be long. I’m not finished with you yet.
Xander: You’re not finished with her yet? What the hell is that supposed to mean?
Thomas: I’m not hiding my feelings for Hope from anyone. My vision of the future will come true.
Xander: Steffy and Liam raising Kelly and Beth.
Thomas: And Hope, me, and Douglas. And if you keep fighting me on this, Xander… you will regret it.
Xander: You’ve made yourself clear, Thomas. So you can stop threatening Zoe and me.
Thomas: No one’s threatening you. I’m telling you how it’s going to be. You and Zoe will keep this secret.
Xander: Even if Hope and Liam deserve honesty and openness?
Thomas: They do deserve honesty and openness. That’s the kind of relationship we’re going to have. And that’s the kind of relationship she’s gonna have with Douglas, too. But that won’t happen if Hope finds out the truth.
Xander: Are you even hearing yourself? I mean, the way you’re rationalizing things —
Zoe: Xander, please. Thomas just wants what’s best for his little boy. For everyone, really.
Thomas: But that won’t happen if you or Zoe or Flo go to Hope with this. You get that, right?
