Sheila: Look, I could leave if you really want me to, but you’d be a fool to pass up this offer. You can do so much better, deacon. Look, do– do you really wanna live the rest of your life like this? I– granted, this is a step up from the storage room, but it’s– it’s definitely not the forrester estate. I can help you do better. The money I have access to, it’S…
Deacon: How much? I mean, if I’m even gonna entertain the idea of you staying here, I wanna know exactly how much.
Taylor: Wow. Where did that come from? I– I thought we were talking about the kiss that ridge and I shared that you’re not threatened by.
Brooke: No, I’m not. I am not threatened by that kiss. Am I happy about it? No, absolutely not. But I’m confident in my marriage with ridge. I know that he loves me, and I’m– I’m sure that we’re gonna recommit sometime soon.
Taylor: Yeah, you must be confident to randomly attack his son.
Brooke: First of all, it’s not random, and it’s not an attack. This is a warning. Douglas is living in a very secure, loving home. And there is no way that I’m gonna let thomas take douglas away from hope.
Hope: I just– I just wanna make sure that we have the same expectations. I want to believe that you’re just talking about one night, but now that I know you want douglas to live with you permanently, I–
Thomas: For right now, it’s just one night, and he is going to have a blast. Okay? Now, we’ll worry about everything else later.
Thomas: You know how much I love my son. How much I miss him. And you heard him, he misses me.
Hope: And I’ve been supportive of the two of you spending as much time together as possible, but this is his home.
Thomas: This has been his home, and it– it’s been a fantastic home. You and liam have done an amazing job with douglas, but– look, I will always be grateful that you are his mother, but he also has a father. And lately, I felt like an absentee one. Okay? I get to show up, and I– I play ball with him, and I give him ice cream, and then I send him along his merry way. And it’s like– it’s– it’s time to change that. It’s time for douglas to live with me. And he’s a forrester, after all. He should be with his forrester family.
Taylor: Why are you doing this? You have no say in what thomas and hope decide to do.
Brooke: The decision was already made. Back when thomas realized that douglas needed a reliable parent in the home.
Taylor: Yet that decision was encouraged by hope. I understand. I do. But thomas was in a very fragile place, and it was only supposed to be a temporary living situation while thomas got his life together, which he has done very successfully, I might add.
Brooke: Even if that were true, I have a hard time believing it. And I think you’re a little bit too biased to see things clearly. Douglas cannot be yanked out of his home. And you, as a psychiatrist, I would think that you would know that!
Taylor: Don’t pull that card. Listen, I would never do anything to harm my grandson. But as a psychiatrist, I do think that it is far more dangerous for douglas to not be living–
Brooke: Douglas is not being pulled out of the home. I won’t allow it.
Taylor: I’m sorry, you– you won’t allow it?
Brooke: Absolutely not.
Sheila: Ah. Not kicking me out so fast anymore, are you?
Deacon: You know what? You know what?
Sheila: But as for the amount of cash, well–
Deacon: Never mind. Stop. Stop. Just– no, no. You know what? I– I don’t know what the hell I was thinking. I don’t even wanna know, all right? Is my life perfect? No, it’s not. But I like it the way it is. I’m working on trying to better myself, you know, make something out of myself. I– I got a good relationship with my daughter. Starting to get really solid. Hanging out with you is gonna ruin that.
Sheila: What exactly are you trying to say?
Deacon: I think I’m exactly trying to say that you need to leave right now. Hi, I’m karen.
Hope: Well, douglas was just dropped off, so I think we should table this discussion for another time.
Thomas: We can’t keep putting this off. This is important, okay? We have to do what’s best for douglas.
Hope: And that is more time with you. I agree. I understand how valuable those father-son moments are, but the place that he calls home, I just– I don’t want that to change. Here is where it’s best for him.
Douglas: Hey, dad!
Thomas: Hey, come here! Did you have fun over at eli’s?
Douglas: Yeah, his dad took us to the zoo.
Hope: Oh. Did you remember to say thank you?
Douglas: I did.
Thomas: Good man.
Douglas: I didn’t know you’d be here. Do you have time to play catch?
Thomas: I’d love to play catch, but actually, first, um, I– I have a question for you.
Taylor: Yeah. Brooke, I– I understand that– that you’re very worried about hope. And I am very worried about douglas. But I also know that– that– that hope loves douglas so much, and I am sure that she would want him to have a very close and loving relationship with his father. Don’t you?
Brooke: Everyone wants that.
Brooke: As long as thomas is worthy.
Taylor: Worthy, really? He has worked so hard to get to where he is.
Brooke: My daughter’s worked hard to raise his child, while he’s off trying to get better.
Taylor: His child. His child. You just said it. Douglas is thomas’s son, and you don’t have any right to say when they see each other.
Brooke: Well, this really isn’t about saying, this is about living. We’re talking about where douglas lives. And if there’s any question at all, even in the slightest, that thomas doesn’t have douglas’s best interests at heart–
Taylor: Don’t do that. Don’t do that. Do not question his character.
Brooke: Oh, my god, how can I not? After everything he’s done through the years.
[ Taylor scoffs ]
Taylor: Oh, that is ironic. Hello, pot, meet kettle.
[ Brooke scoffs ]
Taylor: I need you to stop, now. Okay? Do you have any idea how much my family has been through recently?
Brooke: Yes, I do. And it’s been horrific. But the pain that steffy and finn have felt, that has nothing to do with you snatching douglas out of his home.
[ Taylor sighs ] It’s not what we’re doing. It’s not what we’re doing. Ridge and I are just laser-focused on our family right now. We just–
Brooke: Wait. Ridge and I? Ridge is my husband, not yours.
Sheila: You– you like the way your life is? Seriously.
Deacon: Look around, sheila. Do you see any bars? Any guards? I got my freedom, so you know what? Yeah, I like it a lot.
Sheila: Oh my god, you’ve got your freedom, but what are you doing with it, deacon? What– you’re living in a place like this, playing busboy?
Deacon: Not a lot of people would take a chance on an ex-con. I figured you’d know that. Speaking of which, how do you have all this supposed money?
Sheila: Well, you know what, I would think that you would know better by now than to question my ways.
[ Sheila scoffs ] You used to be successful. You had your own nightclub, deacon, you– you had your own design company. And you were a force to be reckoned with, and– and look at you now. You’re barely getting by. I can change that for you.
Deacon: I don’t need to change.
Sheila: Need? Okay. What about want? I can set you up with everything you desire. You– you want new clothes? You want furniture? A trip, maybe a new car. It’s like you said, these opportunities don’t come along very often, especially for guys like you. Opportunity doesn’t come knocking on that door, and yet here I am at your door. Knock, knock.
Deacon: I– I don’t know, sheila.
Sheila: Come on, think of all the perks that I come with. Don’t make me leave. Please don’t send me away. One prilosec otc in the morning
[ Birds chirping ]
Thomas: I’ve actually got some news. Um, great-grandad asked me if I could move in with him.
Douglas: Really? Cool. His pool is awesome.
Thomas: Yeah, right? I mean, I’ll probably just jump in there as soon as we get home, actually. And you know what’d make it even more awesome, is if you join me.
Thomas: Awesome! Well, I thought we could make a night of it, right? You could come over, we’ll hang out. He’s got plenty of space, obviously so much to do. And in the morning, we could take a dip then, too.
Douglas: That would be so fun. Can I? Please, mom, can I spend the night with dad?
Taylor: Why? Why do you have to tell me that ridge is your husband every chance you get?
Brooke: Taylor! If you don’t wanna be reminded, don’t give me reason to have to!
Taylor: Saying “ridge and I” was not meant to trigger you like this. Although I understand that you’re threatened, even though you say you’re not. Ridge and I have a core family that we need to nurture, just like you and ridge do. And you and eric. And– and you and deacon. But I digress, just– brooke, put yourself in our shoes, please. We’ve been very worried and we’re just coming down off of everything that happened with steffy and the kids.
Brooke: We’ve all been very worried. And that has nothing to do with douglas.
Taylor: Oh, but it does. See, because we got to witness a miracle happen for steffy and her family was reunited again, so naturally, ridge and i want the same thing for thomas. You know, douglas has been living over in the… cabin over there for a very long time now.
Brooke: Yes. With hope. His mother.
Taylor: And now it’s time for my grandson to live with his father.
[ Brooke laughs ] Day in and day out.
Brooke: No. No, that is not happening.
Taylor: See, but it is happening. It’s happening tonight at eric’S.
Brooke: No, that can’t happen. Thomas can’t do that to hope, or to douglas. Douglas already lost a mother. So, thomas thinks it’s fine that he loses another?
Brooke: You think it’s fine?
Taylor: Wow. You know, brooke. Caroline died. Hope is very much alive, and she’s not going anywhere. And she is more than welcome to– to– to engage in douglas’s life as much as she wants to. We want that. This is just about where douglas lives and sleeps, that’s it.
Brooke: Well, he sleeps at home. Where he feels very safe, and secure, and comfortable. With hope, and liam, and beth. Douglas is not leaving his mother, or his sister. He’s not.
Sheila: It’s not too late to do something with your life, deacon. Something that’s gonna make your daughter proud.
Deacon: She is proud of me.
Sheila: Oh, yeah, right. Because you’re no longer in prison. Yeah, proud. But what about if you gave her something to see that you are successful pursuing a dream? I can invest in that. I can invest in your future, I– do you really wanna walk away from free money?
Deacon: Free? Sheila, helping you? That could cost me a lot.
Sheila: Look, hope would never have to know about our agreement. That would stay between us.
Deacon: You know, I could follow my own dreams without your money, thank you very much.
Sheila: Well, how? I mean, do you have any kind of savings? To buy a suit, let alone groceries. I mean– here I am with a life-changing offer. So, without me, what do you even have?
Deacon: I’ve got my freedom. You should know how valuable that is.
Sheila: Yeah, well, I want my freedom, too. I don’t want to go back to prison, but I– and I don’t want to keep running either. That– that life is just too lonely.
Deacon: Fine, stay out of prison. But why here? Why me?
Sheila: I think last night answered that question. (Vo) when you live with moderate to severe crohn’s disease
Douglas: Can I, mom? Please, can I spend the night with dad? I always have so much fun when I’m there, and I promise I’ll say thank you to great-grandad.
Hope: Oh! Well, then, in that case, of course you can go with your dad.
Hope: For the night.
Douglas: Oh, thank you so much.
Hope: Of course, sweetie. Now, I already packed your bag, but double check that I didn’t forget anything?
Thomas: Oh, don’t forget, swimsuit.
Hope: Oh, yeah.
[ Hope laughs awkwardly ]
Thomas: You saw how excited he was?
Hope: Yes, but–
Thomas: Hey, it’s all gonna work out, okay?
Hope: Yeah, well, as long as we remember that this is just for the night and not any sort of long-term change. This is douglas’s home.
Taylor: We all believe that this is the best thing for thomas and douglas.
Brooke: You, thomas and steffy. I mean, that’s hardly “all,” “we all”–
Taylor: And ridge. Brooke, he told me that he talked to you about this, that he shared his feelings and how he felt about douglas and thomas reuniting.
Brooke: I don’t think this is really about douglas at all. I think this is about you wanting to take douglas away from my daughter, and also driving a wedge between ridge and me.
Taylor: Oh, brooke, no. You’re doing a fine job of that all on your own.
Brooke: This really isn’t about douglas at all, is it?
Taylor: You think that I would use my grandson to try to get ridge back?
Brooke: I think that’s exactly what you’re doing. But it won’t work. You’re not gonna take douglas. You’re not gonna do that to hope. And you certainly are not going to do that to me. Sheila: Do you know how long it’s been since I’ve shared myself with a man? And last night… that went beyond any expectations I had. And I think you enjoyed yourself, too. You see, all you had to do was give us a chance.
Deacon: Yeah, well, I didn’t know it was you.
Sheila: Hmm, kinda kinky, but I– I think you like that, don’t you? Don’t give up on me. I’ll be anything. Anything you want. Just don’t turn me in. And don’t turn me away. All right, you know what? Um… if– if you– if you want to turn me in, go ahead, your phone is right there. Although it could cost you your freedom as well. A parolee harboring a– a fugitive. You may end up going back to prison, too, but– but you go right ahead. I mean, if– if that’s what you want, and you don’t wanna take a chance on me, then go ahead. Pick it up.
Deacon: Can’t risk it.
Sheila: Smart decision.
Deacon: Is it?
Sheila: Yeah, but I just have one more question. What side of the bed do you want?
