Brooke: So, I was wondering, did being locked up change bill at all?
Katie: [ Laughing ] You mean, did it make him more humble? Uh, no. I think it’s gonna take more than a jail cell to accomplish that. I’m kind of relieved. I mean, it’d be weird if he came back and he was all transformed.
Brooke: If will is anything like beth and douglas, I’m sure he’s thrilled to have his father home.
Katie: Yeah, he is. And bill is spending every possible moment with him.
Brooke: Same at our place. Hope and liam are really focusing on the children and making sure that they feel safe and secure.
Katie: Well, family seems to be the thing these days. Especially now with steffy and finn and their little one.
Brooke: Ridge is there right now. He can’t get enough of his little grandson.
Katie: Well, he must be really pleased at how steffy’s turned her life around since she and finn got together. Makes me wonder if there will be another wedding soon.
Ridge: To be clear, I support your relationship with finn. He’s a good guy, he loves your children, he loves you. I just didn’t like that he wanted to marry you on the couch without your–your family. It just didn’t seem right.
Steffy: Well, you know, he’s full of surprises.
Ridge: Yeah, and even though you turned down that wedding proposal, I can see in your eyes that it’s gonna happen. Am I right?
Paris: I don’t mean to put you on the spot, but you must have been a little bummed when steffy didn’t go along with your impromptu wedding.
Finn: Yeah, but I get why. She wants one with her family, and it takes a lot of time to plan. We got a lot going on right now.
Paris: Yeah, valid reasons. I still think that isn’t what you wanted to hear.
Brooke: Steffy and finn are as committed as it gets.
Katie: And now, they have a child. It’s just amazing how quickly your life can change.
Brooke: I know. If finn wasn’t working that shift at the hospital that night when steffy had her accident, they may never have met.
Katie: Well, I guess that just validates your belief in fate.
Brooke: Yes! Fate is real. If two people are destined to meet, they’re going to meet, no matter what stands in their way. I’m just happy that steffy is back on the right track, for her sake and for hope’S. Not that it was bad before. It’s just, doesn’t hurt to have a wonderful man by your side, like finn.
Ridge: Finn has made an incredible difference in your life.
Steffy: He sure has. I can’t imagine my life without him.
Ridge: And now, you have, uh, little hayes.
Steffy: I know. It just keeps getting better and better.
Ridge: You’re happy. It’s obvious.
Steffy: Yeah, I am.
Ridge: And to think…
[ Baby cooing ] What is that sound?
Steffy: The baby.
Ridge: No, no, no, it’s something else. It’s, uh…
Steffy: What sound? What are you…?
Ridge: Wedding bells. I hear it loud and clear.
Steffy: Uh-huh. Dad.
Ridge: Don’t throw stuff at me.
Steffy: I’ll throw all the toys at you.
Ridge: All right.
Steffy: [ Laughing ] What’s the #1 retinol brand
Paris: I don’t mean to be up in your business. I’m just checking on you, making sure you’re okay.
Finn: I’m good. But I appreciate your concern for steffy and me.
Paris: Well, I’m–I’m not, really. I can see that you guys couldn’t love each other any more. Especially seeing it up close? I mean, talk about relationship goals. You guys have set the bar very high.
Finn: Oh, what can I say? You know, steffy, she’s–she’s pretty easy to love.
Paris: Oh, don’t sell yourself short. You’re pretty special too.
Finn: That’s kind of you to think.
Paris: Not think, know. And I will challenge anyone who tries to say different.
[ Both laugh ]
Finn: Well, I like you, paris, and I, um, I’m glad you’re part of our lives.
Paris: I couldn’t be more grateful for your generosity. Staying with you and steffy has made all the difference. The pressure to find a place, like, now, is gone. I get to walk on the beach every day. And if that’s not enough, I get to spend time with your beautiful kids.
Finn: Oh, I know the kids are enjoying it too.
[ Door opens ]
Zende: This is the file steffy needs.
Finn: Yes, thank you, I appreciate that.
Zende: So, what’s the verdict on the new baby? Gonna keep him?
Finn: [ Laughing ] Yeah, we’re, uh, we’re leaning that way.
Zende: Paris says that hayes is something.
Finn: Well, I mean, steffy and I seem to think so. But, um, anyway, I better get back, so…
Zende: Good seeing you.
Finn: Thank you very much. Um… later?
Finn: All right.
[ Door closes ]
Zende: He’s a good guy.
Paris: Yeah. He sure is.
Katie: So, ridge approves of finn, right?
Brooke: How could he not? Finn puts a smile on her face that we haven’t seen in a long time. She is genuinely happy.
Katie: I think it’s more than that, though. She just seems… settled in a mature way, right?
Brooke: Yeah. There’s no drama. They’re sure about their future together.
Katie: Hmm. Fate.
Brooke: You said it, not me.
Katie: That’s because I know you wanted to.
[ Both laughing ]
Brooke: You tease me, but i know you believe it too.
Katie: Oh, sure, when it comes to you and ridge, absolutely.
Brooke: And you and bill.
Katie: I’m not so sure about that.
Brooke: Oh, come on. You guys will get back together, and he’ll have plenty of time to charm you.
Katie: Yeah, charm is kind of an understatement. He’S… relentless.
Katie: Why are we talking about me and bill? We’re talking about steffy and finn, and how happy she is now that finn is in her life.
Brooke: And baby makes four.
Katie: You know, I–I realize that steffy doesn’t need a man to define her. But he is the father of her son, he’s the stepfather to her daughter. They’re crazy about each other, so… what’s the hold up?
Ridge: My grandson’s getting better looking by the minute. And he was gorgeous to start with.
Steffy: Yeah, he’s especially cute when he’s sleeping.
Ridge: Is he not letting you sleep?
Steffy: No, not really, but we love it. And we’re taking turns. But it’s so cute seeing finn like this. This is his first experience as a dad, so… it’s nice to watch him.
Ridge: It’s sweet that… your face light up every time you talk about that guy. It’s nice. Do that again.
Ridge: Your face. Just turn that way a little bit.
Ridge: Just do it.
Steffy: Okay, like this?
Ridge: Yeah. Why can’t I… mm, I’ve spent too long with this stuff. There it is.
Steffy: What are you doing?
Ridge: Uh, just adjusting something I’ve been working on.
Steffy: Wait. Are–wait, wait a minute. Are you…
Ridge: Nothing, just let–
Steffy: Are you designing my dress? No, let me see.
Steffy: Just let me see, dad. Please, please, please, please–
Ridge: No, hey, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. I know you don’t like surprises, but let me have this one. Just let me finish it, ’cause we’re gonna need it sooner or later, right?
Steffy: I’m not confirming or denying anything till I talk to finn.
Ridge: All right, fair enough.
Steffy: But I do love the guy like crazy.
Finn: I hope the guy you’re referring to is me.
Ridge: Well, that is my cue to leave. You guys go ahead and discuss the future.
[ Both laughing ] Love you.
Steffy: Love you. Bye, dad.
Ridge: All right.
Finn: What about the future? In the midst of hate, I found there was, within me,
Zende: You keep going back to that one.
Paris: Oh, it’s exquisite.
Zende: You really think so?
Paris: Who would know your work better than me?
Zende: Oh, I don’t know. Hope?
Paris: Okay, maybe. But I’m a close second, so i know what I’m talking about. You have completely leveled up with this one design.
Zende: I don’t see it.
Paris: Are you kidding me?
[ Scoffs ]
Zende: No, I’m still too in the details. I can’t take it all in yet because I don’t know what it’s gonna end up being.
Paris: All right, well, you go ahead and keep surpassing yourself, ’cause this is a showstopper.
Zende: Don’t tell thomas.
Paris: My lips are sealed.
Zende: You know, I’m glad that we decided to take things a little bit slower. One day at a time. This ease I feel with you, I don’t want to put that at risk.
Paris: Yeah, I–I feel the same. You know, after witnessing zoe, carter, quinn, and eric blow up, destroy their relationship to no repair, I just don’t wanna see that happen to us.
Zende: So, earlier when–when finn was here, it felt like I was walking in on something. Is everything okay at the beach?
Paris: Yeah. It’s just, you know, when you live with someone, you can pick up on nuances and whatnot. I just want the best for steffy and finn.
Brooke: I think hope will agree with your changes for the campaign. You just have to call her and schedule a meeting. Oh, but do it next week sometime, because they’re still trying to settle in with liam being back home.
Katie: Yeah, of course. I understand.
Ridge: Hey, I didn’t know you were here, how are you?
Brooke: Wow, you’re all charged up.
Ridge: Hi, you look good.
Brooke: Mm, wow!
Ridge: I–you… do you remember going to hawaii? Do you remember that?
Brooke: Uh, yeah.
Ridge: Yeah, sitting on the beach, and–and the water was perfect, and the sand was perfect, and we’re just having a couple of drinks. And the sun is out, and we’re just having a good time. You know how that feels at night?
Brooke: I know.
Ridge: How you’re charged up, right? That’s–no, that’s how I feel when I have my little grandson. I’m–I’m holding him.
Katie: Oh, my god.
Ridge: And not that it was on the beach, but I’m just– I just felt like I’m charged up.
Katie: Grandpa is a goner.
Ridge: I am!
Katie: He is on the beach somewhere.
Ridge: With my boy. It’s amazing.
Brooke: Okay, well, you know what, how’s steffy?
Ridge: I guess she’s okay. She’s okay too. I don’t–yeah, she’s good.
Katie: Well, we were just talking about her, how happy she is since she found finn.
Ridge: No, she is happy. It’s–it’s a good life. It’s–it’s a good life for her, she’s very happy.
Katie: They’re a real family now.
Brooke: And finn seems like a traditional guy, so we were actually wondering why they’re not married yet. Especially now that there’s hayes.
Finn: I still can’t get over him. I mean, he’s really here. It just–it still gets me.
Steffy: I know, it’s like so much anticipation for months, then it just feels like he’s always been here.
Finn: Mm, I know, he steals my heart a little bit more each day.
Steffy: Mm-hmm. We made a good baby.
Finn: Yeah, we did. Mm, I got the file for you from the office.
Steffy: Thank you for saving me the drive.
Finn: I’m happy to do it. And you gave me a son. The least I can do is pick up some paperwork.
Steffy: It’s more than that. You’re so kind. And considerate. And you’ve been like that from the very beginning. I’m so lucky to have you in my life.
Finn: I think I’m the lucky one.
Steffy: [ Chuckles ] We’re both lucky. The way you take care of me and kelly, and the love you have for hayes… I never want to let you go.
Finn: Good. ‘Cause I won’t go anywhere.
Steffy: Good. I just wanna keep my arms around you like this, always. Till death do us part.
Finn: Wait. Are you saying what I think you’re saying?
Steffy: Mm-hmm. There are times, I wonder…
Ridge: Well, this is new. The two of you concerned about steffy.
Brooke: She’s my stepdaughter. Of course I’m concerned. I want her to be happy.
Ridge: And I’m–I’m not saying you shouldn’t be. I’m–I’m happy that you’re happy. But there was a time when she wasn’t your favorite person, right?
Brooke: Not when she was making my daughter’s life miserable.
Brooke: So, I can’t deny I am thrilled that steffy and finn are together. Now that it takes her off the playing field for liam, everybody is happy and they’re in the right place.
Ridge: Katie, do me a favor. Can you write that down? ‘Cause that is it. This is the world according to logan.
Brooke: You know it’s true, ridge, come on. He adores steffy. And there’s no competition for his heart.
Katie: Which has got to be a relief to know where she stands with her man.
Ridge: It’s a relief for me to know that my daughter, my extraordinary, talented daughter doesn’t come second to anyone. This has nothing to do with liam, really. Maybe a little bit, but I–I’m glad that liam is with hope. And steffy should be with finn.
Brooke: Okay. Well, that takes us back to the wedding question. Now, I know that steffy doesn’t need a husband. But under all that fiery exterior and independence, I think that she wants a traditional family, you know?
Brooke: And the best man for her to make up that husband material is finn.
Katie: I completely agree. So, that begs the question, why hasn’t she made it official?
Ridge: I’m sorry. This is–this is fun for me.
Ridge: You guys are speculating about things, and I actually have information.
Katie: You’ve been letting us go on and on and on, and you have actual intel?
Brooke: Oh, my god! Spill it already!
Ridge: You guys wanna hear it?
Brooke: I do!
Ridge: Okay, well I–I was over at my daughter’s house, and we were talking about weddings and marriages and stuff, and she said, “well, I need to talk to finn about that.” And… she will. So, I’m not sure about you guys, but I feel that there’s gonna be wedding bells very soon.
Brooke: [ Chuckles ]
Brooke: [ Laughing ]
Finn: I don’t want to jump to a wrong conclusion, but when you said, “till death do us part,” sounds pretty familiar.
Steffy: What about, “do you take this man to be your lawfully wedded husband?”
Finn: Are you serious?
Steffy: When you proposed to me, I was so happy. I accepted, and I–I put on your ring. And then we had hayes. When you wanted to get married right away, that meant so much to me. I know it probably stung when I told you I–I needed time.
Finn: Steffy, I heard you. Like, a lot has happened, you know, really fast. And… I know you just needed to catch your breath before the next life-changing event. It’s–it’s totally understandable.
Steffy: I don’t know where you came from, or how our worlds collided. But I am–I am so grateful.
Finn: Me too.
Steffy: You changed everything for me. Even the way I value myself. I’ll never doubt how much you love me, because it’S… it’s the way you show me. And I promise, I’m gonna love you… until death do us part.
[ Chuckles ] I wanna marry you, finn. And I wanna do it right away. If you still wanna marry me.
Finn: Are you serious? Yes.
Finn: Steffy. I wanted that since the first moment I laid eyes on you. You say I changed everything? Look in the mirror. I am a different man. I am a better man for loving you. And I would be so honored to have this vibrant, beautiful, sexy, fearless woman that you are as my wife. Today, or tomorrow, or a hundred years from now.
Steffy: No, no, I wanna marry you right away. I wanna marry you right away. I wanna be your wife. I wanna do it right away. And I finally get to meet your parents.
