Hope: We have to get Ridge back here. We have to tell him what really happened.
Brooke: Honey, you need to calm down.
Hope: He is worried about his son for good reason, and that is because he is dead.
Brooke: Okay, please, stop saying that.
Hope: Thomas is in a vat of acid because of me, and I’m not going to keep that secret.
Brooke: You’re forgetting how this all happened. Thomas brought this on himself. His actions made you react. And what kind of a father does that, takes his son and puts him in an empty room, and leaves him there in an empty building so that he can chase you around and have sex with you? He was coming on to you, Hope. He cornered you.
Hope: But that shouldn’t have cost Thomas’ life. I should have tried using my words. I should have tried talking to him. He listened to me. Or at least he did before I killed him.
Brooke: Oh, honey, how many times do I have to tell you? It was an accident.
Hope: Do you really think that’s going to make a difference to Ridge? To Steffy or to Douglas? I killed Douglas’ father, mom, after he just lost Caroline, and Douglas trusts me. He trusts me.
Brooke: Honey, you’ve gotta listen to me, okay? God only knows what would have happened if you didn’t defend yourself. Thomas was intimidating you. You had to protect yourself.
