[ Knocking ]
Jordan: Officer. I gotta let him in.
Sheila: You can’t do that! If he sees me, I go back to prison and so do you.
[ Knocking ]
Hope: Thomas will be here any minute.
Brooke: So he’s taking douglas to eric’S.
Hope: Yes. But just for the night. And normally I wouldn’t give that a second thought. He’s done overnights and weekends before, but now knowing that thomas wants him to live with him full time, I’m just trying really hard not to freak out.
Brooke: Honey, it’s going to be okay. Douglas’ home is here with you. We’re not gonna let anybody take him away.
[ Hope sighing ]
Eric: No, donna, I don’t think so.
Donna: Working from the pool is still working from home.
Eric: Yeah, but if you’re in the pool, I won’t get any work done.
Donna: I’m not gonna distract you. I’m– I’m just gonna lie on my float and soak up the sun. Hm?
Eric: What, you don’t see how– how– how– how that might be a distraction to me?
Donna: Or motivating. The sooner you get work done the sooner you can join me.
Eric: Mm-hm. You see, even you describing that to me is a distraction.
Donna: Ah! Well, I’m not gonna apologize for that one.
Eric: I don’t think you should.
Eric: Mn-mn. Come here. Come here.
[ Donna moaning ]
Taylor: Um, oops. Um, okay. Ah. Sorry about that.
Thomas: Yeah. I– I– I told you that we should’ve called.
Taylor: Uh, yeah.
Donna: Oh, it’s okay.
Eric: No, not at all. I– I’m delighted to see you.
Ridge: ‘Cause it almost seems we’re interrupting something.
Eric: We were just planning what to do with the rest of our day. Where’s douglas?
Donna: Uh, yeah, I thought he was spending the night.
Thomas: Yeah, he is. I’m about to head over and grab him.
Eric: Well, I’m very that– that you’re going to be staying here.
Taylor: We are so excited, too. You know, this is long overdue. Douglas finally gets to spend time with his father.
Hope: If he wants ton just spend more time with him, then he can and we can work something out. It’s just… this is his home. Douglas is happy here.
Brooke: Unfortunately, thomas, taylor and steffy wanna change that. They wanna take douglas away from you.
Hope: Okay, well, then I don’t understand that. Because they have so much to celebrate right now. Why start to start a fight?
Brooke: I don’t know. I– I think it’s taylor. Well, I won’t allow it. Something has to be done.
Hope: But I don’t want douglas to pick up on any tension between us.
Brooke: Okay. Yeah. That is why I’m going to handle this. Right now.
Taylor: I cannot think of a better place for thomas and douglas to spend more time together than right here.
Eric: I want the two of you to feel absolutely at home here at the house.
Thomas: Thanks, granddad. I appreciate that.
Taylor: Yeah, really, thank you. Thank you for making it so easy for thomas and his son to reunite. It’s such a gift. And you know what? We’re just gonna see how it goes, okay? We’ll see how it goes. Maybe this will turn into more than just a night here and there. And you guys can live together, and you know, really bond.
[ Thomas chuckling ]
Eric: I remember how close the two of you were when caroline first passed away.
Thomas: Yeah. Yeah. But, um, I– I’m in a much better place now. Thanks to you.
Taylor: Well, we were all here to support you, sweetheart. You know what? I’m gonna go.
Taylor: Um, thank you again, eric. And bye, donna.
Taylor: Did you get the uh–
Ridge: Is this it?
Taylor: That’s the one. Okay, thanks. Bye.
Ridge: Okay, bye.
[ Knocking ]
Jordan: Deacon, it’s jordan. Let me in. We have an appointment.
Sheila: Oh, god. You were expecting him?
Deacon: He’s parole. I– I– it’s a residence check. Yeah, jordan. Just give me a second, okay?
[Mouthing] You. Hide.
Sheila: [Mouthing] Where?
Deacon: Go to the bathroom. Right now. Be quiet. Don’t make a sound. Hey, jordan. Sorry to keep you waiting. Come on in.
Jordan: There a problem?
Deacon: No. No problem.
Jordan: You got nothing to hide? Age-related macular degeneration may lead to severe vision loss.
Deacon: Have anything to hide? Come on, no, jordan.
Jordan: If you are hiding something, it’s not gonna be funny, deacon. You seem a little nervous.
Deacon: Just kind of embarrassed. You know, I mean, place is a mess. Got my parole officer coming over, I wanted things to be immaculate.
Jordan: You oversleep?
Deacon: Yeah, I didn’t mean to. I– I hung out after work.
Jordan: Still working downstairs?
Deacon: Yup. Hey, I even got a raise. Uh, it’s allowed me to afford this luxury penthouse.
Jordan: Following protocol? Staying clean?
Deacon: Yeah. I’m– I’m working long shifts. Uh, you know, I spend time with my– my daughter, my granddaughter.
Jordan: No drugs?
Deacon: No, sir.
Jordan: Staying away from criminal elements?
Deacon: That was the old me. You know, I– I’m a family man now. I’m just, you know, mr. Up and up.
Jordan: Anything else you want to tell me?
Jordan: What was that? Is there somebody in the bathroom?
[ Knocking ]
Hope: It’s open.
Thomas: Hey. Did you get my text?
Hope: Uh, yeah, thanks for letting me know you were on your way.
Thomas: Sure. I just wanted to give douglas time to get his stuff together. Is, uh, liam helping him pack?
Hope: Uh, no, liam’s actually at work. And there really wasn’t that much to pack because it’s just an overnight.
Thomas: Uh, yeah. I mean, we’re spending time over at granddad’s, like I said. Um, is he ready?
Hope: Douglas isn’t here.
Ridge: It’s probably good that we’re discussing this on our own.
Eric: Yeah, well, believe me, donna would much rather be out there alone than to come between you and her sister.
Ridge: I don’t want that either.
Eric: So how does brooke feel about this? Uh, she can’t be thrilled about it.
Eric: What about hope? Uh, wouldn’t hope rather that douglas stay there with them?
Ridge: Sure she would. Look–
[ Sighing ] Douglas lived there for a long time. It was good for him. But now, this is gonna be good for him. Spending time with his dad. Thomas and hope, I… they’ll figure something out.
Eric: If they don’t, it’s gonna be a big conflict for you.
Ridge: It’s already a conflict.
Eric: You don’t want to be caught between brooke and taylor, do you?
Taylor: Yeah. I mean, it would be great to find an assistant that actually stays at their desk.
[ Knocking ]
Taylor: Um, come in. Yeah, if you find anybody that would be awesome. Just, you know, give me a call. I– I definitely appreciate it. Okay. Thank you. Okay, bye-bye. Look at you, knocking.
Brooke: Hello, taylor. Are you busy?
Taylor: Am I busy? Why are you being so nice? Who are you?
Brooke: I know what you did in monaco. You kissed ridge.
Only daisy cottage cheese will do
Thomas: Douglas isn’t here?
Hope: Oh, no, no. He’s still over at eli’S. His mom said that the pizza was running late.
Thomas: Oh, okay. So he’ll– he’ll be here soon.
Hope: Yeah. I– I hope that’s not a problem. It kinda gives us a chance to talk.
Thomas: Sure. I– I don’t have any like crazy plans. Just hanging out at the house.
Hope: Is eric going to be there?
Thomas: Yeah. He’s actually really excited to see us both.
Thomas: I– look, hope, I– I know… I know that this is all a little bit sudden, but it’s really not that big of a deal. And for right now, it’s just a night over at granddad’s house. That’s it.
Hope: Thomas, I’ve been thinking a lot about the things you’ve been saying lately about how you’re feeling and the role that you play in your son’s life and I– I know that we agreed to this overnight, but you’re still really wishing it were more than that, aren’t you?
Brooke: Must have been completely overwhelming to find out that finn was alive. Can only imagine what it was like for you and ridge.
Taylor: Ridge told me that he shared with you with everything that happened. But, I mean, I’m happy to tell you again. So ridge and I were, um, feeling very helpless, uh, about our daughter’s depression, and then out of nowhere, finn shows up. And– and steffy’s life and her family was back together again and it… and…
Brooke: And I’m very happy for them. I am. I’m happy for the family. But I do know that the way you chose to celebrate, by kissing my husband. That was totally out of line.
Jordan: Deacon? Do you have someone over?
Sheila: [Southern accent] Deacon, sugar, is your parole officer here?
[ Deacon sighing ]
Jordan: Who’s that?
[ Deacon sighing ]
Sheila: I’m so sorry. I’m– I’m deacon’s lady-friend. I– I don’t mean to be rude, but you caught me in the bathtub.
[ Deacon scoffing ]
Jordan: Your girlfriend. You’re in a relationship now?
Jordan: I asked you what’s new.
Deacon: I know, uh, I was raised not to kiss and tell, you know.
Sheila: He’s such a gentleman. I’m so sorry, I’m just– I’m gonna let you gentlemen get back to your business.
Deacon: Can we do that? Can we just, you know, ignore her?
Jordan: Is she living with you? ‘Cause I need to make a note of that. Uh, get a name. Some background information.
Deacon: No! No, no, no. It’s not like that. She’s– we spent the night together. You know how it is. This is not gonna be a regular thing.
Jordan: She doesn’t have a record, does she?
Jordan: Because that would be a problem. I need to know who you’re associating with.
[ Phone ringing ]
Jordan: Ah. Uh, sorry. My kid’s school. Hello. Ms. Arbor? Uh, no, suzy didn’t have a fever this morning.
[ Sighing ] Uh, okay. I’ll be right there. I have to go.
Deacon: Okay, I hope everything’s all right.
Jordan: Yeah. Listen, deacon. You’re on the right track. One of my better parolees. Making good life choices. So if you and this woman have something, maybe give it a shot. With the right person, a– a new relationship could be a good influence on you. Okay.
Sheila: Hey, sugar. Is he gone?
Deacon: What the hell were you thinking?
Sheila: Yeah, it was close. You know what you need? I think we both need to slip into a nice, hot bath. Girls trip.
Thomas: Hey, hope, I can see you’re obviously a little nervous about this whole thing. Yes, I do think that douglas should live with me full time.
Hope: And you’re saying I shouldn’t be worried about that?
Thomas: No. I’m his father. I love douglas more than anything in the world.
Hope: I know, thomas. I know that you love him. And I know that douglas loves you. It’s just, you’re– you’re talking about pulling him away from– from the home that he’s known, and–
Thomas: Right. I– look. I’m– I’m talking about stepping up. And being a father to him like I always wanted to be. And he misses me, hope. You heard him.
Hope: Then, I will be happy to give you two more time together.
Thomas: Give us?
Hope: Yes. I will do whatever it is you need me to do for you two to be able to spend more time together, just on his schedule here in his home. Because this is where he belongs.
Taylor: Take a seat, brooke.
Brooke: Gladly. When you first came back into town, you said you didn’t want to interfere in my marriage. I was hoping that was true.
Taylor: It was.
Brooke: Yeah? Well, sheila drove us apart. But you were right there.
Taylor: To be completely accurate, ridge was right here. I just offered my comfort and support.
Brooke: Mm. And that’s what you do best. You’re the ex-wife who is ridge’s best friend. But I think that’s changed. You’ve changed.
Taylor: I really have changed.
Brooke: Yeah. You want something more, don’t you?
Taylor: I want more for ridge. He is so unsettled. You have put him through so much.
[ Brooke chuckling ]
Brooke: There you go. Least I’m getting the truth out of you.
Taylor: I’ve always said this. It’s just that ridge is now starting to realize that he’s spinning his wheels with you. He’s always stuck in the same situations over and over, and brooke, he’s tired. And I’ve noticed a change in him since I’ve been back. But definitely noticed a change when we were in monaco. He wants to be there for his children. His children that he has neglected for so long. Because of you. Thomas needs him and steffy needs him.
Brooke: Okay, wait, hang on. The– the kids don’t need him. The family doesn’t need him. You need him, taylor. You.
Taylor: Oh, I don’t need him. I want him. To be happy. Now, you came by because you’re threatened about the kiss that ridge and I shared, right?
Brooke: No. Absolutely not. I’m not threatened by that kiss at all. But what does bother me is the way you inject yourself into things that my family is dealing with. You know, namely my daughter and her children. That’s why I’m here. And I think you know what I’m talking about, taylor.
Taylor: My grandson. Douglas.
Brooke: Yes. Douglas. And there’s no way that I’m gonna let thomas pull douglas out of his house away from hope. It’s just not going to happen.
Deacon: Not in the mood for your jokes or a bath.
Sheila: Then maybe I should leave this off. You wanna get dirty?
Deacon: That was my parole officer. If he would’ve seen you, it would have been adios to my freedom and yours.
Sheila: Wh– it was an accident. I knocked over–
Deacon: No. No. No, no, no, no. Everything you do is intentional. Why the hell did you come back here? You should’ve headed for the border, you should have crossed and never looked back.
Sheila: And live for what? A life on my own? A life where I love no one? Have no one to love me? I– I’ve– I’ve already lived that life, deacon.
Deacon: What are you talking about? Oh, come– do you– do you actually believe that there’s a chance for you to have a relationship with finn after everything you’ve done?
Sheila: I– I– I– I just want to be close to my son and grandson and make sure that they’re all right.
Deacon: You just don’t get it, do you? They’re better off without you!
Sheila: You know, none of my other children want anything to do with me. This is all I have left, deacon. My last chance to actually make something good out of this miserable life of mine. Finn is– he’s a good man. And hayes is– is so beautiful. I’m a part of them. They’re a part of me.
Deacon: Sheila, you can’t stay here. All it’s gonna wind up doing is bringing trouble for you and for me.
Sheila: Trouble can be kind of exciting.
Deacon: No, no.
Sheila: It was last night.
Deacon: No, no, no, sheila. All right? Get your stuff, get changed, take my shirt off and go. There’s the door. I don’t wanna see you again.
Sheila: No. You don’t– you don’t mean that.
Deacon: Sheila, there is not a reason in this universe that I would let you stay here.
Sheila: You know what? I’ll give you a reason. I have money. A lot of it. Don’t ask me how. Tell me your number. Go ahead, deacon. Tell me what you need.
Deacon: How much do you got?
