Thomas: Hope hasn’t moved on.
Zoe: She’s back with Liam. You know, they’re raising Beth.
Thomas: Okay, look, she still wants to be a mother to Douglas.
Zoe: Okay, but she had your marriage annulled, so that’s not going to happen.
Thomas: That’s what she wants more than anything. She said it. I mean, that’s where her focus is. But I know something else is going on–something underneath the surface. I could tell while I was there, but it was something she didn’t want me to see.
Zoe: Like what?
Thomas: I don’t know. But if I’d gotten her to stay, I would have found out.
Zoe: You asked her to stay the night?
Thomas: That’s all it’d take. One night with me, and… everything would be different for us.
Zoe: You think you’re that good.
Thomas: I know when a woman is into me.
Zoe: Well…then this shouldn’t surprise you at all. Well, look at that. Thomas Forrester is speechless.
Thomas: You made my point.
Zoe: And what’s that?
Thomas: Hope doesn’t know what she’s missing.
Thomas: Yeah, and if she’d stop being so uptight and just give into her desires, we’d have a lot of fun together.
Zoe: Okay, I plant a kiss on you, and you’re talking about Hope? Thomas, I thought that you came here to talk about your future, not your past.
Thomas: Hope wants a relationship with me.
Zoe: Oh, God, come on.
Thomas: She’s talking about shared custody. She wants to be in my life.
Zoe: Yeah, I was trying to get your attention, but it’s like you can’t keep your mind off of Hope. I’m starting to think that you’re just obsessed with her. I mean, seriously, did that kiss have no impact on you at all?
Thomas: Look, Zoe, you… You are a beautiful woman. Sexy. And under different circumstances… but there’s only one woman for me, and I’m doing everything I can to get her back in my life.
