Sheila: “I’m so sorry for yesterday. Just had to see you. So proud of the man you’ve become. I wish I could hold hayes. Not possible. I know. I won’t be a problem for you. Promise. I’m leaving town. You’ll never see me again. Love always, mom.”
Steffy: Hayes has a full belly and he’s already back in dreamland.
Finn: Did you sing him a lullaby to get him down?
Steffy: No, he, uh, he requested a nursery rhyme. What do you think, he’s trying to tell me something?
[ Laughing ] So, handsome, um, would you mind if I head to the office? I want to talk to my father and figure out where things stand with the whole restraining order. I know sheila is your birth mom, but we just have to be careful. I just want to make sure she doesn’t stop by here. We need to think about hayes. Okay, let’s just, let’s just stop talking about sheila altogether. You know what I want to talk about? I want to talk about my sexy, handsome, doctor husband. That’s who I want to focus on.
Ridge: Dad. Hey! Hi, did you hear anything I said, or…
Eric: What? I’m sorry, son, what, what is it?
Ridge: Well, now I don’t know if I need to go back.
Eric: Come on, what?
Ridge: I’m talking about the restraining order and why I hadn’t heard from carter.
Eric: So, you think there’s a problem with carter?
Ridge: No, I, what? No, I just told you. I said that he’s gonna talk to the judge about sheila and what she’s done to our family, and he’s gonna get the order.
Ridge: What’s going on with you? It’s that, isn’t it? Your divorce papers. Well okay, all it takes is two signatures and you’ll have closure.
Carter: Make sure her honor gets my message as soon as her meeting’s over. Yes, it’s that important.
Quinn: Ooh. Oh, you are so sexy when you take control.
Carter: Need to get that restraining order against sheila. Ridge made it very clear.
Quinn: Yeah, for good reason. I mean, sheila’s been making the forresters’ lives a living hell for years, even when I was married to eric.
[ Phone dinging ] Oh. My divorce papers have been finalized, but you already knew that, didn’t you?
Carter: Yeah, I, um, I didn’t know how to tell you. Today is the day.
Paris: Ah, I am interrupting! Sorry.
Steffy: No, no, we were just done.
Finn: We were doing, um, what newlyweds do.
Paris: Are you sure you guys don’t want to take a few days to just be alone? You could drive up the coast and stay in a romantic b&b, or amelia and i could take the kids–
Steffy: That’s, that’s really sweet, and we’d probably take you up on it, but you know, with everything going on…
Paris: Yeah, I, I get it. Now is not the right time, with the shocking appearance from finn’s birth mother, but I am glad to see it didn’t put a damper on your romance. Not that anything could.
Ridge: So, how’s it feel? Free of quinn?
Eric: Ridge, you all warned me about this. You all told me if I married this woman, I’d be sorry. Brooke told, everybody who cared about me–
Ridge: Well, it doesn’t matter now.
Eric: No? There’s not a small part of you that wants to say, “I told you so, dad”?
Ridge: Don’t do that, no, there is not. I know you don’t take divorce lightly.
Eric: No, I don’t, and I never will.
Carter: I was thinking that if your marriage to eric is truly over…
Quinn: It is. I mean, the divorce papers are finalized, as you know.
Quinn: There’s only one thing left for eric and me to do, and that’s to sign them and then, it’s official.
Carter: That’s how it works. Look, quinn, um, we fought so hard not to give into these, to these feelings. You loved eric, and I was loyal to him and ridge. We tried to stay apart, but there is this, this pull that we ultimately couldn’t deny, and you’re about to sign these divorce papers, and once you do, you’ll be free. But I guess, what I’m trying to say is that I don’t, I don’t want our relationship to be a secret anymore. This is new special k dipped.
Steffy: Amelia’s on her way. She’s gonna take care of hayes, while I’m at work.
Finn: You don’t trust his old man to watch him?
Steffy: No wait, you said you wanted to go surfing. Amelia can pitch in.
Paris: Or I could, I totally don’t mind.
Steffy: No, girl, you said you want to go to the beach, no way.
Finn: Well, I am already missing my beautiful bride.
Steffy: Oh, I feel terrible. You met your birth mom, only to find out who she really is.
Finn: I’m the one who feels terrible. I’m the one who brought her back into your life and into your family–
Steffy: No, no, baby, it’s not, it is not your fault. Just promise me you’re gonna stay away from sheila. Alright, I have to go to work, I love you. Bye.
Finn: Love you.
Ridge: Despite how things ended, there was a time when you and quinn were happy, when she was a loving and loyal wife.
Eric: She was. Although, I’m surprised to hear you say that, given what she did with you and brooke.
Ridge: This is not about what she did to us, it’s what she did to you with carter.
Eric: No, just, keep it away from carter, alright? Let’s not talk about–
Ridge: Okay, okay.
Eric: Thank you very much.
Ridge: I know, I’m just not, not sure she would want to throw away everything you worked for.
Eric: She was unhappy, ridge. She felt rejected because I was unable to give her what she felt she should have from me. I wasn’t able to do that for her. Sometimes, I think that I am the one who shoved her towards carter.
Ridge: Don’t ever say that again. She went to somebody else. It’s on her, and not you. You have to understand something. You’re not alone in this. I know how hard it is for you, but we’re here, we’re all here. Your family is here, you understand, right?
Eric: You need to go to the office, go on.
Ridge: Hey, come here. I love you.
Eric: Love you too, son.
Ridge: We’ll figure this out, okay?
Eric: Alright, come on.
Quinn: Carter, what are you saying?
Carter: I’m saying that I don’t want us to be a secret anymore. I don’t want us to sneak around. And I know what you’re gonna say, that if we do this, eric will fire me.
Quinn: He will!
Carter: What happens at forresters’ happens.
Quinn: Okay, it’s not vegas. Come on. You’re gonna lose your job, everything you’ve worked so hard for, you’re just gonna sacrifice?
Carter: I don’t know if you know this, but I am a brilliant, successful attorney, quinn. I’ll find a great job somewhere else.
Carter: No, no, no. This is what we need to do. The thought of not being with you, I can’t accept that, and we can’t let other people dictate our lives, who we should be with. I’m tired of hiding. I want the whole world to know what we have together. You’d never want leftover onion residue
Carter: I hate to see you leave, but eric has the divorce papers, and I know it’s not going to be easy saying goodbye to a life, to a man you once cared about, but I promise I’ll have something special for you when you get home.
Carter: Yeah. Yeah, I want this to be your home too.
Ridge: What do you think? Hey, earth to steffy. Hi!
Steffy: Sorry, what were you saying?
Ridge: Pick a model. You’re distracted because of sheila?
Steffy: Yeah, I, I still can’t believe what happened at my wedding reception. It was the most beautiful day until that lunatic showed up.
Paris: I cannot get over living in malibu.
Finn: Yeah, it’s pretty amazing. The ocean breeze, the sea air, it really does help clear your head. Well, getting pummeled by the waves has the same effect.
Paris: Stop, you rode those waves like a champ.
Finn: Oh, you should see steffy. According to ridge, she was a real water baby growing up. Alright, I’m gonna check on amelia and the kids.
Paris: Finn, look, I know you went surfing to take your mind off all of this, but with your birth mother showing up, and the fallout– and if I’m overstepping, please tell me– but, how are you doing?
Quinn: Eric. Hi.
Eric: I didn’t hear the doorbell.
Quinn: I was assuming you were expecting me.
Eric: I was.
[ Sighing ]
Quinn: Wow. Well, that gives me a hint as to what’s gonna happen.
Eric: Well, this was at steffy’s request. She wanted her grandmother present at her wedding ceremony. The two of them shared something, very, very special.
Quinn: So did we, when we were married. Look, I meant it when I said I’m done apologizing, but it doesn’t mean I don’t still hate myself for hurting you the way I did. You’re a man like no one I’ve ever known before. You’re kind, compassionate, decent to a fault. Part of me is always gonna, always gonna love and care about you.
Expertly tailored eye care.
Ridge: We’ll have the restraining order by the end of the day, and if sheila gets near to you or hayes, she’ll end up in prison, where she belongs.
Steffy: Yeah, I wish I could believe that, but you know her. You know how clever and devious she is. Like how did a woman like that give birth to such a sweet, innocent man like finn? Like, how is that possible? How is that possible that she shares the same dna as my son? I’m gonna do everything in my power to make sure that sheila stays away from finn and my children.
Finn: Thanks again, amelia. Drive safely.
Paris: Next time you go out to clear your mind, you should take baby hayes with you. I know steffy thinks he is too young, but I am sure he would love a ride on daddy’s surfboard.
Finn: Yeah, he is a little young, but maybe when he gets older, that’s a good idea.
Paris: Look, finn, I don’t mean to pry, but if you ever need someone to talk to, you can talk to me.
[ Sighing ]
Eric: Your relationship with carter, I’m not certain I’m ever really going to understand it completely.
Quinn: We didn’t set out to deceive anyone. It’s just circumstances drew us together. But, hurting you, being unfaithful to you is… I’m gonna regret that for the rest of my life. And, I know you probably don’t believe me, but it’s true.
Eric: I believe you. I do, I can hear it in your voice, and I, I also believe you when you say that a part of you will always love me.
Quinn: Yeah, you, you gave me the best years of my life. I’m gonna, I’m gonna cherish those memories. And, once we sign those papers, that’s, that’s exactly what our marriage is gonna be, just, just a bunch of memories. You know, I don’t want to make this any more painful for us than it already is, so I’m gonna, I’m just gonna sign this so that you can–
Eric: Quinn, don’t, don’T. I’ve been thinking a lot about us, and about my part, the part I played in, in… pushing you away to carter, and what the two of you did together. How I shut down physically and emotionally and I denied you the affection and the contact that you deserved, that any woman deserves from a husband. I was thinking about this woman who came into my life, and what you brought to me, and how happy we were together, and how we were alone against everybody else in the world. It was a happy time, and it didn’t bother us. Together, we could build a wonderful future, a happy, wonderful future together, no matter what, no matter what.
Quinn: ‘Til I messed it up.
Eric: Everybody deserves forgiveness. Me too, and as you’ve said, I’m willing to forgive other people. I know I want to forgive you. My time with you, the years we were married together, all these years, I was happier than I ever was any other time in my life. I loved you. I want you. I don’t want this divorce. I want you back, quinn.
