Zende: So, you don’t like the neck line?

Thomas: I do, on paper, but I don’t think this fabric will allow the neck line to fall like you really want it to.

Zende: It could. Remember the way it’s stitched… kind of holds up.

Thomas: Right, I’m saying, I like the design. It’s just honestly, with this fabric, it’s not gonna work.

Zende: I disagree.

Thomas: Okay, hope. What do you think?

Zende: Is everything okay?

Hope: Uh, yeah. Yes. Everything is okay.

[ Sighs ] All right, well I might as well tell you. I’m honestly surprised you haven’t heard donna or pam gossiping about it but… my dad is out of prison. He’s back in town.

Thomas: Deacon?

[ Man groaning ]

[ Clinking ]

Deacon: Dammit sheila, dammit! Come on, come on!

[ Sheila giggling ] God. Ugh.

Sheila: I hear the third cup is a charm. But you surprised me. I really thought someone like you would hold their liquor better.

Deacon: Your bedside manner sucks.

Sheila: Well, excuse my frustration. I hauled you up here, you passed out. That was not my idea of a great night.

Deacon: Oh, what’s a matter, were you expecting a little something else?

Sheila: I wouldn’t touch you deacon, even if I wanted to slap you. Now can we just call it straight on the children?

Deacon: You know, coming up here was a mistake, and hooking up with you is a recipe for disaster. Sheila, if I’m gonna have any relationship with my daughter, come on. I can’t be anywhere near you.

Sheila: You’re never gonna get past liam and the forresters on your own.

Deacon: Well, you know, that’s not really any of your business. Same as whatever’s going on with your son has nothing to do with me.

Sheila: Your daughter hung up on you last night.

Deacon: She wants to have a relationship with me. I mean why else would she have written me all the letters in prison? You know, I just… I just gotta get through to her. And I’m gonna make that happen. Today.

Zende: On a scale from one to ten, how freaked out do you think hope is right now?

Thomas: Look, deacon is about as low as they get, but hope has a soft spot for him.

Zende: He is her dad, right?

Thomas: Yeah, I don’t know if it’s that, though. It’s like hope has this ability to see good in people no matter who they are.

Zende: Talkin’ about liam?

Thomas: Talkin’ about me. But you know, I don’t know what deacon being back means for hope or her family.

Paris: Hey, sorry. I don’t want to be an interruption.

Zende: You could never be an interruption.

Paris: Hi. I was looking for hope. I wanted to go over some forrester foundation stuff.

Thomas: Yeah, actually she just stepped out. She’s on a conference call.

Paris: Is everything all right? I heard you mention deacon, and what it might mean for hope. Who is deacon?

Thomas: That’s a long, ugly story.

Zende: Featuring hope’s father.

Hope: No, the pleasure’s all mine. All right. We’ll talk soon.

Deacon: Shh, it’s okay. It’s dad. It’s dad. It’s me.

Hope: Dad, hi.

Deacon: Hey. I had to get past security.

Hope: How did you know I would be in here and I was alone?

Deacon: I got my ways. You know, I tried to call you last night.

Hope: Yeah, but dad, you can’t be here.

Deacon: Yeah, I know, I know.

Hope: If someone sees you–

Deacon: I’m complicating your life. I know, I’m sorry. I just want to say I’m sorry for everything. I know I’ve said it before. I know I’ve let you down. I just– I want you to understand, I’m different now.

Hope: Why should I believe you this time?

Deacon: I was in my cell, and I was reading. I was reading one of your letters, and it got me thinking about my past. I’ve got so many regrets, and you were talking about that doctor, the one who stole your baby and you thought you’d lost your daughter. Only to be reunited months later. And you were talking about the hurt. The thought of losing another child was the worst hurt you’d ever gone through. And that the pain was so bad that you… you thought you might die. And… the fact that I couldn’t be there for you. The fact that I couldn’t just hold you and… um, wipe away your tears. It just–I… it broke me. And I said to myself that if I ever get out of there, I will do whatever it takes to be a part of your life. Hope, please. I know that I can be the father you deserve. Just give me another chance.

From the very first touch,

Thomas: Apparently hope has been sending deacon letters for quite some time.

Paris: So, she really wants to connect with him.

Zende: He will definitely use her love to get what he wants.

Paris: And that is?

Thomas: I don’t know exactly, but I’m sure it’ll be self-serving.

Zende: It usually ends up with hope being hurt.

[ Phone chiming ]

Thomas: Finally!

Zende: What is it?

Thomas: My realtor said that my seller’s agreed to the reduction. The deal’s closed. Drawing up the paperwork. Yes!

Paris: Oh wow, congratulations!

Zende: Finally! I feel like they were giving you the run around for a while.

Thomas: Yeah, but you know what? This place is worth it. It’s perfect for me.

Zende: So, what are you gonna do with your apartment?

Thomas: I’ll just sublet it. Wait a minute, you’ve been living with your friend after you moved out of steffy and finn’s, right?

Paris: Yeah, finding the right place has been really hard.

Thomas: Okay, well, why don’t you, why don’t you just take my apartment? It’s fully furnished.

Paris: What? No. No, I can’T.

Thomas: Seriously. You can have it for free.

Paris: No, thomas, that’s way too much.

Thomas: It’s not too much, you’re a part of the forrester family. We’re friends, okay? This is what friends do for each other. Look, at least come take a look at it. And if you like it, it’s yours.

Paris: Okay, but I’m going to pay my own way. There are a lot of people out there who can’t, and I am fortunate.

Thomas: Okay.

Paris: Thank you.

Thomas: I actually need to head over there right now if you want to see it.

Paris: Yeah, I’d love to.

Zende: See? I told you it would all work out.

Deacon: I know I can be a terrific father. I really can. I just need the chance to prove it. I also know that you’ve got a lot of people buzzing in your ear telling you horrible stuff about me, and sadly, it’s true. But, but, what’s also true is that I love you. Look, I just… I just want a chance to be the father that you deserve. I wanna be a grandfather to beth. Please. Please, I’m so excited to meet her. I just… want to be back in your life.

Hope: I don’t know what to believe.

Deacon: Hope, just–

Hope: Dad, no. I don’t–

[ Sighing ] I don’t know. Okay, I do know that mom, and ridge and liam certainly don’t want you in my life.

Deacon: Is that what you want?

Hope: I just… I think I just want all of this to slow down. You know, maybe if we grab a coffee or lunch, or something, in public. But you coming here like this. I mean, dad, that’s not a good idea.

Deacon: Is this you talking, or is this them?

[ Door opening ]

Liam: What the hell are you doing here?

Deacon: I came to see my daughter. Like it or not, liam. I’m her father.

Liam: Oh yeah, you’re her father all right. And what kind of father have you been?

Deacon: You know, I’ve been a pretty awful one. Which is exactly why I’m here asking for a second chance. Look, I didn’t come here to con, I didn’t come here to manipulate. I just want a relationship with my daughter. And I want to see beth.

Liam: Absolutely… absolutely not!

Hope: Liam, please.

Liam: Hope, this is what deacon does. Right here, right now. This is it. He’s doing iT.

Deacon: Deep down, hope wants to have a relationship with me.

Liam: Oh my god, get out! Get out! You have caused hope and her entire family nothing but pain.

Deacon: All right, I didn’t come to fight, I just came to tell my daughter… that you have grown up into a beautiful, exceptional woman. Hope, I love you.

Thomas: So, now that I got the house, I mean, you could move in today if you think it’s a good fit.

Paris: It’s great.

Thomas: Well, it’s a great neighborhood, there is a place for pizza right around the corner, and they have live music. They also, after four P.M., You can get all you can eat wings for like ten bucks.

Paris: Mm. Now you’re speaking my language. I thought super rich la guys were just into quinoa and green juice.

Thomas: Ew, no. No, no, no. Look, I know this place isn’t exactly my sister’S. It’s not in malibu, it’s not right on the beach, but it’s–

Paris: Well, it’s perfect. And I’m way more of a city girl than a beach bunny, anyways.

Thomas: Ah.

Paris: Are you sure about this?

Thomas: Yeah, yeah. No, I got my new place, so– actually, I can text over to the management company, have them send you the sublet paperwork right now. Um, look, paris, I’d love for you to live here.

Paris: Deal. Thank you so much.

Thomas: Oh, yeah.

Liam: God, the fact alone that we would just show up like that. You okay?

Hope: Yeah, I’m fine.

Liam: By the way, how did he get past security, ’cause don’t they have a whole–

Hope: Liam, I appreciate that you’re so worried about me, but I really wish you weren’t so harsh with him.

Liam: I’m harsh because I’m trying to protect you. Okay, I know… I know I’m coming on real strong here. I see that. And I know it’s overbearing. But, hope, you have such a good heart. I mean, you have the biggest heart out of anybody I know.

Hope: But…

Liam: But, it makes you vulnerable. Like, people like deacon and sheila, they’re just not the kind of people that change. Even if they really want to.

Hope: And what if you’re wrong about him? You know, he’s had a lot of time to think about his life and what he wants and… is it that crazy to think that he loves me enough to change?

Liam: You tell me. Are you willing to take that gamble? I know I’m being harsh, I just don’t want him to hurt you anymore than he already has. And the best way to achieve that is to not let him be a part of your life.

[ Door knocking ]

Deacon: Hey.

Sheila: That bad, huh? Sorry.

Deacon: Yeah, sure.

Sheila: I mean it. I know what it’s like to be rejected by your child.

Deacon: Yeah, but see, that’s just it. That’s just it. I wasn’t rejected. Hope and I were standing there and she wanted to give me another chance. And then…liam walks in.

Sheila: What’d he say?

Deacon: What did he say? He talked to me like I was a piece of garbage. Like I was nothing. I have spent so much time fighting the forresters, and now I gotta fight liam spencer?

Sheila: Yeah, well, I have fought the forresters, too. And now I have to contend with steffy.

Deacon: Maybe we’re the problem. Maybe we ought to… maybe we ought to just quit. Sheila, the forresters are never gonna let you around them.

Sheila: You’re telling me to give up on finn and hayes? My own son and grandson?

Deacon: You’re never gonna have a relationship with them, so yes. Yes, before this goes too far because you are starting to get obsessed again. Everybody knows what happens when you think you should have something. I mean, you did it with lauren fenmore, you did it with eric forrester. Look, you just, you need to stop and realize what you can’t control. So, you need to leave your son, and the forresters the hell alone.

[ Sinister music ]

Thomas: Okay, so all this was already in your car.

Paris: Well, yeah. My friend didn’t have a lot of closet space, so.

Thomas: Oh, you want me to start moving this stuff to the bedroom?

Paris: No, no. You’ve already helped so much and I e-signed the sublet while I was out there.

Thomas: Oh, then this place is officially yours. Congratulations.

Paris: Thank you. And if you’re up for it, I would love to treat you to some of those wings that you were talking about. Show my gratitude.

Thomas: You’re on.

[ Phone ringing ] Oh, it’s my realtor. I gotta take this. But, make yourself at home. It is your home. Hello? Yeah. Okay. Am I sitting down? What do you mean? What? No, no, that’s not possible because they accepted my offer. Okay. All right, yeah. Okay, thanks.

[ Scoffs ] I can’t believe this. Um… well, I guess the seller backed out. He just gave the place to his buddy instead. I guess I’m not moving after all.

Deacon: I just came to tell my daughter that you have grown up into a beautiful, exceptional woman. Hope, I love you. If hope wants me out of her life… sheila: She said she wanted a relationship with you, then liam interfered.

Deacon: What could I do? That’s her husband. I mean, if for some reason, she doesn’t want me around, that’s how it’s gotta be. It’s the same thing with your son. I mean, if he doesn’t want you in his life, you gotta give him what he wants.

Sheila: What are you gonna do? What, are you gonna leave town? You’re gonna go from job to job?

Deacon: I don’t know what I’m gonna do, okay? But what I do know is that I haven’t earned a place in hope’s life. The same as you haven’t earned a place in finn’s life. Sheila, you know, maybe we just need to admit that we lost.

Sheila: You know what I hate more than anything, deacon? Someone with a defeatist attitude. A coward. Someone who gives up. No one had a perfect upbringing. But when there’s blood between a mother and a son, and a father and a daughter, you don’t give up. That blood bond is something that cannot be broken. I will have a place in my son’s life. In my grandson’s life. In the forresters’ life. Yu understand? Am I a mother that’s obsessed because I want to see my son? Yes. What’s really surprising me here right now is that you’re not. I thought you told me that you cared about hope.

Deacon: Hope means everything to me.

Sheila: Well, then do something about it. Together, we can get our kids back. But, you know what? If you would feel better crawling back into that bottle that you came out of, you go right ahead. But, I’m gonna be a part of my son’s life. I’m gonna be a part of my grandson’s life. And there is nothing that steffy and the forresters can do to stop me. I won’t stop until I get what I want. And you know what, deacon? I always get what I want. I always get what I want.

[ Gentle piano music ]

Liam: And the verdict is?

Hope: Sound asleep.

Liam: And what about douglas? How’s his, “I’m reading until midnight, no matter what campaign?”

Hope: Oh, well, that’s not going according to plan.

Liam: Aw. It always cracks me up to see him in there, just like mouth open snoring away with the lights on and an open book on his chest.

Hope: I know, it’s so adorable. I love this. I love our family and the life that we’ve created.

Liam: I do, too. Which is why I think we need to protect it.

Deacon: Look, if you’re trying to hit on me, I just want to say that–

Sheila: Whoa, whoa, whoa. You’re not interested?

Deacon: I mean, don’t get me wrong, you’re…you’re a very attractive woman for a, you know, psychopath. I’ve been down this road before. I do not want to get thrown over another cliff, so I think I am going to politely say, no, thank you.

Sheila: Shattering my dreams, why don’t you.

Deacon: Okay, there’s no need for sarcasm, all right? You’re the one who said, you need me.

Sheila: It’s because I do, deacon. Almost as much as you need me.

[ Sighs ]

Steffy: You’re home. I thought you were going to be gone all night.

Finn: No, I was laser focused to get back here to you.

Steffy: That’s so nice.

Finn: I mean, I must have set a record churning through sick people.

Steffy: That’s not you. You’re a thorough and caring doctor

Finn: When the patient is drop dead gorgeous, potential wife material. Yeah. Otherwise it’s just kind of…

Steffy: Uh huh. Sure.

Finn: Hey, your dad texted me. He said he was sorry that he missed me. He stopped by?

Steffy: Yeah, actually, he had some gossip.

Finn: Some gossip?

Steffy: Yeah, it turns out sheila isn’t the only unwanted visitor to come back into our lives.

Finn: Uh oh. Who now? Do I know him?

Steffy: No, no, and you definitely don’t want to. He’s not a good guy.

Finn: And does he have ties to your family?

Steffy: Unfortunately, yes, thanks to brooke. Hope’s father is out of prison.

[ Clears throat ]

Hope: Was that you’re not so subtle attempt to bring up my dad?

Liam: Not, not very subtle at all, was it? It’s going to come up eventually. And you did kind of just spring him on us today. I get why you want to give him the benefit of the doubt. I do, but, I feel like it’s my job as your husband, as beth’s father to protect you from people just like deacon, because it’s a pattern, right? You open yourself up to him. He’s going to hurt you. You do it again. He’s going to hurt you again. Because that’s what he does.

Deacon: Just so you know, I got no plans of going back to prison. All right? I’m the textbook example of a fully reformed, productive member of society. Oh, molly? Ching-a-ling. Thank you. No. If whatever you’re pitching here and ain’t the up and up, I don’t want to hear about it.

Sheila: Well, that’s rather presumptuous of you. Don’t you think?

Deacon: Well, you do have a reputation.

Sheila: Oh. A reputation of being the forresters’ favorite target, the one that they have maliciously vilified for years and years is that the reputation you’re talking about?

Deacon: I mean, is it malicious if it’s deserved? I mean, it’s not really just one person either, is it? Although in your defence, I may actually be the forrester’s preferred target. I mean, you kind of got to hand it to them, though, right? I mean, they really can hold a grudge, can’t they? I mean, what was the last thing I ever did to any of them that was bad? Nothing. And they’re all running around with their hair on fire because all I want to do is have a relationship with my daughter.

Sheila: Yeah, but you know what? It’s the same for finn and me. I’m not allowed to have contact with him because of mistakes I made in the past, mistakes that I have apologized for. It’s ridiculous. You know, I’m not going to let the forresters tell me who I can and cannot talk to.

Deacon: Good for you.

Sheila: I deserve a place in my son’s life, as you do hope’S.

Deacon: Look, we deserve it, doesn’t mean we’re going to get it.

Sheila: It’ll happen because we’re going to make it happen. Neither one of us have been too good at this on our own. But if we work together, team up to go after those spiteful, horrible people. Imagine what we could accomplish. Shingles? Oh… you mean bill.

Steffy: It’s remarkable how like balanced and accomplished she is, given that deacon’s her father. Like that could have really messed her up, but thankfully my dad took over the father figure role. And that just shows you like, you and hope, no matter your dna, that doesn’t define you, right? I don’t mean to bring her up or anything, I just–

Finn: It’s okay. I get the correlation.

Steffy: It’s a little bit different for hope. You didn’t know your mom. Hope knew her dad. I mean, he wasn’t involved in her upbringing, but she knew that deacon sharpe was her father. How much he was hated. How how awful he was.

Finn: And now he’s back. He’s out of jail and in her life. I wonder how hope feels about all this.

Hope: I know who my father was and yes, still might be, and I get that you’re worried. But liam, I’m not going to let him take advantage of me or use me, I under–

Liam: Okay, but if he did have a hidden agenda, you wouldn’t know that until it’s too late, right?

Hope: Or, maybe it’s not so hidden. Maybe he genuinely does want to get to know me and actually act like a father, a grandfather. I mean, why do we have to assume the worst of him?

Liam: I just… I think it’s okay to tell some people you’re out of chances. You’re not welcome anymore. Like, okay, your dad, your mom, me. We don’t want deacon in our lives for the same reason none of us want sheila in our lives. Just set aside for a second all the times that deacon has let you down. Right? All the times that he’s abandoned you, put that aside. He’s still a con man, right? He’s blackmailed people. He’s kidnapped people. He just got out of jail for trying to shoot someone. Tell me, you understand why I’m saying the guy should not be a part of our lives.

Deacon: All kidding aside, that was a good pitch, but whatever you’re selling, I’m not buying it.

Sheila: Yeah. Well, you know what? If you have to be sold on a relationship with your daughter, then this partnership is probably a bad idea anyway.

Deacon: Of course, I want a relationship with hope, but aligning myself with you isn’t the way to get it.

Sheila: Yeah, but you’re drunk. You’re not seeing the potential.

Deacon: Oh, potential. You wanna talk about potential? Okay, let’s talk about man-eating dobermans or killer bees or whatever the hell else. I’ve heard the stories.

Sheila: I’ve heard stories about yoU. All those ugly things you did. Reformed, or not, neither one of us can claim to be a saint, and that’s what makes collaborating on this so easy. I realized I might be making a deal with the devil, but you know, the truth is we will find a way to be in our children’s lives. I mean, brooke and ridge, they are not going to let you walk through that door and allow hope to let you into her heart. That’s going to take work. Some strategizing. You need my help, deacon. Like it or not, we need each other. Scoot over.

Sheila: You have to admit it makes sense.

Deacon: Sheila, you’re making my head spin all right?

Sheila: No, your head spinning is not because of me.

Deacon: That’s probably right, which means it’s time to get out of here.

Sheila: Whoa, is that a moth I just saw flying out of there?

Deacon: It’s funny.

Sheila: I can take care of this.

Deacon: I can pay my own bills.

Sheila: Yeah, with what? Your library card?

Deacon: Maybe they’ll let me wash dishes or something.

Sheila: That’s just what they want, they want a drunk back there breaking their dishes.

Deacon: I was drunk. Now, i’m just buzzed.

Sheila: Yeah, buzzed and broke it would seem.

Deacon: Yeah, it seems that way, doesn’t it?

Sheila: I’m gonna take care of this, and I’ll call you a car because you shouldn’t be driving like this. Unless you’re right around here. Can you walk home?

Deacon: Home?

Sheila: Deacon, you’ve got nowhere to go? Okay. Well, you do now. You can come stay with me.

Steffy: Was the shower good?

Finn: Oh, yeah, it was great, thank you.

[ Sighs ]

Steffy: You want to talk about it?

Finn: Talk about what?

Steffy: I don’t know. Just seems like there’s something on your mind.

Finn: I was thinking about hope and her dad. And the way he popped back into her life. And obviously, I can relate.

Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, you can. But with sheila, she showed up uninvited. It’s not the case with deacon. Hope knew her dad was coming.

Finn: Oh, that’s fine. So, does she want a relationship with him?

Steffy: I guess. My dad told me that hope was writing letters to him while he was in prison.

Finn: I can understand why. No matter what he’s done, he’s still her father.

Steffy: A father who disappointed her. He’s hurt the people that she’s cared about. Doesn’t matter if he’s her father. He’s not owed a place in her life. He’s lost that privilege& a long time ago.

Liam: I’m not trying to pick a fight with you, I’m not trying to upset you, I’m just… I’m your husband and I’m worried.

Hope: I know, I know you are. And I appreciate that. But liam? I’m being careful and believe me, I am walking into this with my eyes wide open.

Liam: I know, but I don’t want you to walk into it at all.

[ Baby crying ] I’ll go check on her. Look, all I’m saying is if we want the very best for our family, deacon has to stay away. That’s just he has to be. Before you go there,

Steffy: Even if hope is fantasizing that her father’s changed, that prison reformed him, she’s got kids now. This isn’t about hopE. She needs to think about beth and douglas and do whatever it takes to protect them. She needs to set firm boundaries and keep deacon as far away from the kids and her as possible. Like what I did with sheila. If hope is smart, she’ll realize that applies to deacon as well.

Deacon: Stay with you?

Sheila: Not indefinitely, just until you get on your feet, you know, stay for a few days.

Deacon: You know, the last couple of years in prison, the thing that kept me going, I was thinking that I was going to have a role in hope’s life, and now here I am in a bar, drinking again, drinking with sheila carter. No less. So, if that isn’t something to worry about, I don’t know what is.

Sheila: Did you really expect a different outcome? Did you expect the forresters to suddenly, you know, embrace, you?

Deacon: No, I don’t know. Maybe. I…

Sheila: What are you doing?

Deacon: Calling my daughter.

[ Phone chiming ]

Hope: Hello, dad?

Deacon: Hey, sweetheart. You answered.

Hope: Oh yeah. What’s going on?

Deacon: Look, I don’t want to cause any problems. I just, you know, I just wanted to tell you that I–

Liam: Took a minute, but she’s asleep.

Hope: I’m sorry. I got to go. Goodnight.

Deacon: Okay.

Sheila: Bad cell service?

Deacon: No, she hung up on me.

Sheila: I’ve had the same reaction from finn. But I guarantee you, that’s not what hope wanted. Hey, our kids do care, they do want to know us. It’s just that… you know, steffy and liam, they have so much influence over them. And ridge and brooke too. Who do they think they are? Keeping us from our flesh and blood?

Deacon: They act like, you know, we can’t change or something, you know, that we can’t become better people. I know that I have. Question is, have you?

Sheila: I have.

Deacon: Sheila. Look, I’m sorry, but you know, I just… I just can’t be seen with you. You know, I can’t associate with their enemies.

Sheila: Where are you going?

Deacon: Not to your place.

Sheila: Then, what are you going to do? You gonna sleep on the beach? Under an overpass? Look, I have a safe place to stay. I’ve got money in my wallet. And you clearly don’T. Which means you’re going to get a good meal or two. And I’ve had plenty of this.

Deacon: You have booze?

Sheila: Yeah, I got a decent selection. I’ve got everything at my place that a guy getting out of prison might possibly desire.

Deacon: Yeah, but it comes at a price. I gotta work with you.

Sheila: Look, if we can come together and tell the forresters that they can no longer control us or our children, that’s what we need to do. Look, we have a right to know our children, to know our grandchildren. Doing that on our own, deacon, it’s almost impossible. But doing it together, we can get it done.

Deacon: Two ex-cons pathetically trying to work their way back into their kids lives. What could possibly go wrong? I know I’m going to regret this.

Sheila: No, you’re not. You’re not going to regret being a part of hope’s life. Together, we’re going to make this happen. You do exactly what I say, and we’re going to get our kids back. I promise you. Steffy and the forresters aren’t going to know what hit ’em.

[ Gentle music ]

Steffy: I love that you came by, dad.

Ridge: Of course.

Steffy: It’s great. You just miss finn.

Ridge: Yeah, is he at the hospital?

Steffy: Yeah, life of a doctor.

Ridge: And what about the kiddies?

Steffy: Kiddies are sleeping, so you’re just going to have to settle for your daughter.

Ridge: Ah, my very happy daughter from the look of it.

Steffy: Yeah. Marriage to finn is the best. It’s amazing. I mean, except for–

Ridge: Except for sheila.

Steffy: Yeah. Just knowing that she’s out there lurking somewhere.

Ridge: Well, she is not the only uninvited guest that showed up out of nowhere.

Brooke: I know deacon is your father, honey. But after everything he’s done.

Hope: Mom, please. I already know how you feel about deacon.

Liam: It’s how you feel about him. I mean, you were writing to him in secret. You weren’t telling anyone. You didn’t even tell me.

Hope: And I hated keeping that from you all, but again, I just didn’t want you to worry.

Brooke: Well, of course we were worried. He showed up here like he had every right to be here.

Hope: Because I invited him. He had gotten out, and I thought…

Liam: You wanted to see your father.

Hope: I understand that he has baggage. But–

Brooke: You want to believe that he’s changed.

[ Polka music ]

Deacon: Uno, dos, tres.

[ Grunts ] Oh! Give me one of these. Hi, how would you like to go to acapulco for the weekend? What?

Sheila: Seriously? She is so not into you.

Deacon: I just got to get my mojo back, that’s all.

Sheila: Do you really think a jailbird is gonna catch–

Deacon: Shut up! Come on, you’re gonna ruin this for me.

Sheila: I’m not ruining it, you are. You need to keep focused on what’s important.

Deacon: I was just focusing on what was important.

Sheila: Talking about you and me. What we both want. We both want the same thing. Time with our children. You know, if there’s a will, there’s a way. That has always been my mantra. I need to know that you feel that way too.

Steffy: What are you talking about?

Ridge: Well, hope asked brooke and me to come down to the cabin.

Steffy: For dinner?

Ridge: No, no dinner. No dinner. I don’t even know where to start. Look, I get hope has this great ability to forgive people, but how do you do that after everything. How do you… how do you let that go? How do you allow someone like that in your home?

Steffy: Allowing who in her home?

Ridge: Her father.

Steffy: Deacon?

Ridge: Uh huh. The bad penny’s turned up once again.

Steffy: You’re kidding!

Ridge: No, I’m not. And there’s more.

Hope: Please understand that I know all about deacon’s history, but he is still my dad.

Liam: Of course, he’s your dad, and we know how you feel about second chances, too. But…

Brooke: Deacon has had chance after chance, and every time he’s hurt you and disappointed you.

Liam: Think about our wedding in italy. Like the guy effectively ruined the whole thing.

Hope: Okay, but that was not his idea, it was bill’s idea. He used him–

Brooke: The point is deacon is untrustworthy. He has proven that over and over again. You can’t let him back into your life.

Hope: Mom, please. Please stop. I understand that you have my best interest at heart, both of you. And I love you for it. But I am going into this with my eyes wide open. I have no illusions about my fatheR.

Deacon: Listen, sheila. Whatever kooky schemes you got cooking up–

Sheila: It is not a scheme. It’s a good idea.

Deacon: Call it whatever you want. I want no part of it.

Sheila: You don’t even know what it is.

Deacon: And you know what? I ain’t interested in finding out either. What are you doing?

Sheila: What are you doing? Walking away from the best opportunity you’re ever gonna have to see your daughter and your granddaughter.& That’s what I’m talking about, deacon. Talking about our children and our grandchildren. How we will refuse to be exercised from their lives by the haughty, high-handed forresters and logans. Excuse me, can I get one more shot here? And it’s on me, all right? Come on, you don’t need to rush off, right? It’s not like you have anywhere to go. You’re certainly not gonna go see hope. Brooke probably has the place surrounded with guard dogs by now.

[ Giggling ] You know, all of that could change if you just hear me out.

Deacon: Thank you. Oh. My plaque psoriasis…

Steffy: Thank you so much for fixing that.

Ridge: Anything I can do to help.

Steffy: Still can’t believe it. Hope contacting deacon in prison. Inviting him into her house. Is he still as smug as usual?

Ridge: Well, not according to him. He says he’s a changed person. He’s completely rehabilitated himself because he owed that to hope.

Steffy: Well, hope didn’t completely write him off even though he was behind bars.

Ridge: No. Her letters gave him life.

Steffy: Oh, please! And hope bought it?

Ridge: Fathers and daughters, right? Special bond.

Steffy: Yeah, but deacon? That man is toxic.

Hope: People do change. They can learn from their mistakes.

Brooke: Your father isn’t one of them.

Hope: Well, I’m talking about now. The present. I mean, do you think that maybe incarcerated, locked away by everything and everyone that meant anything to him might have had an impact?

Liam: Hope, we… we realize that as his daughter, of course you’d want that to be true.

Brooke: More than likely, he’s the same old manipulator and you don’t need him in your life, now or ever.

Deacon: You know, you make a very good tequila.

Molly: Thanks.

Deacon: And molly, right?

Molly: Mm-hmm.

Deacon: So about this boyfriend of yours?

Molly: Big, tough, jealous.

Patron: Excuse me?

Deacon: Okay, but what if I told you–

Molly: Sorry. Duty calls.

Deacon: What the hell’s going on here?

Sheila: You’re out of practice.

Deacon: Out of practice. Watch this. Excuse me. Excuse me? Would you like to go ensenada? Because I know you hate acapulco?

Lady: No, thank you.

Sheila: Pathetic.

Deacon: No, you know what it is? You’re cramping my style, all right? Beat it.

Sheila: Oh no.

Deacon: I mean it. Go.

Sheila: Excuse me. Excuse me? Can I get another drink for my friend?

Deacon: I’m not her friend. I’m not your friend.

Sheila: Well, not yet. I mean, but given how much we have in common, I think that it’s going to be that way one day or–yeah!

Deacon: Well, you’re off your rocker. You know that, right? Just like…

Sheila: Why? Because I want to spend time with my son?

Deacon: Right? Your son. The one that married steffy forrester.

Sheila: Finn. Yes.

Deacon: I’m sorry, finn? As in huckleberry? That’s that’s his name? Oh.

Sheila: It’s short for finnegan, his adoptive parents’ last name.

Deacon: Oh, okay.

Sheila: Now, they were wonderful. They gave him a loving, stable home after I gave finn up shortly after he was born.

Deacon: Well, you sure as hell couldn’t have given him a stable home. That’s for damn sure.

Sheila: Yeah, you’re probably right. I wasn’t in a good place back then. I would not have been a good influence on him. That’s why I stayed away.

Deacon: And you stayed away until you found out that old finny boy was getting hitched to a forrester. Then presto! There you are in the flesh, ready to make it happen.

Sheila: Are you insinuating that I would manipulate a situation?

Deacon: Oh no, no, no, no. I’m not insinuating anything. I’m saying it flat out, you’ve manipulated a situation. It’s like who you are. You know, you’re like the grand poobah of manipulations.

Sheila: Yeah, but it… it really wasn’t like that. No, he’s special. He’s a good man. He’s a doctor. He’s handsome, he’s kind, and he and steffy, they have a beautiful, beautiful baby boy together. My grandson, hayes.

Deacon: Hayes? What’s with these names? Do you want this kid to get bullied? I mean, come on. Wait, wait a second, hayes was… hayes was steffy’s mother’s name before she got…

Sheila: Married. Yeah.

Deacon: And this is– just so I understand this, and this is the one that you pumped a couple of bullets into.

Shiela: Why does everybody have to bring that up? No stop it. Look, I’m not here to talk about taylor. All right? I’m here to talk about my flesh and blood.

Deacon: Right, this is the baby that you gave up for adoption, then became a doctor, went on to marry steffy forrester. So now you’re the grandmother, this kid.

Sheila: I’m not making this up.

Deacon: I mean, you know, I have heard all the sordid stories about, you know, you and how you desperately wanted to become a part of the forrester clan. Son of a– you actually did it. Wow. So, that means that this this pure little innocent baby is half forrester and half you? Oh, wow. I’ll drink to that.

Sheila: And boom, right?

Deacon: Wow.

[ Giggling ] Nice work. My hygienist cleans with a round head.

Steffy: When you think about it, hope’s reaction to deacon is very similar to how finn reacted about sheila. I mean, she’s awful, but she’s–

Ridge: It doesn’t change the fact that she’s his birth mother.

Steffy: Yeah, that’s true. I mean, deacon is a loser. He really is. But he is hope’s father, and she can’t quite shake him, even though she should.

Ridge: Same way that finn needs to shake sheila.

Steffy: And he knows he has to do that for our sake, for our family. I just pray hope comes to that conclusion. Deacon is trouble, and he has no place in hope’s life or beth’S. Just like sheila has no place in finn’s or hayes’.

Hope: I hear everything you are both saying.

Brooke: Good. Because deacon will say all the right things, honey. He is a con man.

Hope: Mom, I understand what you are saying, but I’m a grown woman, and this decision wasn’t made impulsively and I’m entitled to want to try to pursue a relationship with my dad.

Brooke: But this isn’t just about you. This is also about your daughter. He wanted to see beth, remember? And thank god she was out with douglas and donna. But what if deacon comes back tomorrow or the next day or the next?

Liam: Exactly. The bottom line is the guy’s not a good influence.

Brooke: And he’s definitely not the kind of person you want to have around beth, ever. You know, he can’t be in her life. You do know that, don’t you?

Deacon: The next round’s on me, ladies.

Sheila: They are so not into you.

Deacon: How can they not be in the me?

Sheila: Why don’t you focus on what’s important?

Deacon: You mean what’s important to you, this whole con thing you got going on?

Sheila: Whoa, whoa, wait a minute, I’m not the con man here, you are. And for the record, I didn’t come into finn’s life to disrupt it.

Deacon: Oh no, no, no. You just happen to show up out of the blue with the most important moment of his life. He’s marrying steffy forrester. Stephanie’s namesake. Your departed arch rival. No, no, no. I’m not buying this. All right? You were probably putting together this poignant little mother-son scheme for months.

Sheila: It wasn’t like that. It was not a manipulation.

Deacon: Whatever it was, this has been fun. But I got better things to do than sit around and listen to you whine about the forresters.

Sheila: Wait a minute, you were the one that was talking about the forresters. Sitting here having a pity party for yourself because they wouldn’t let you see hope. Look, deacon, like it or not, we have something in common. We both want to see our children and we would be. If the forresters weren’t keeping us from seeing them. I’ve lost count of how many asthma attacks I’ve had.

Ridge: Deacon needs to stay away from hope and beth if he cares about them at all. Which, for a minute, I don’T… I don’t think he does. I don’t think he cares about ’em.

Steffy: Sheila doesn’t care about finn, either. If she did, she wouldn’t have revealed to him that she was his birth mother. She knew it was going to create chaos, but that’s what she lives for. Upending lives.

Ridge: Same with this clown. He knew there was going to be fireworks, but it didn’t stop them.

Steffy: That’s why it’s really important for hope and finn to not have any contact with their criminal sick parents. I made it very clear to finn. I’m just praying that liam does the same for hope.

Hope: Mom, I will always protect my little girl and do what’s best for her.

Brooke: Of course you will, honey. Because you’re a wonderful, loving mother. But deacon looks for vulnerabilities in people, and he exploits them. I just want you to be careful.

Liam: That’s all I want. I mean, I’ll admit it, I don’t know everything about your dad because most of it happened before we even met, but, it, it kind of freaked me out that you were secretly corresponding with him.

Brooke: Deacon is dangerous and so is sheila, and they both need to be kept away from their families at all costs.

Deacon: I’m just going to say this once, all right? I don’t want to be a part of whatever it is that you’re suggesting.

Sheila: Why not?

Deacon: Because if I ever want to have a relationship with hope and my granddaughter, I can’t be associating with a sheila-devil like you.

Sheila: A sheila-devil?

Deacon: Truth hurts, sorry.

Sheila: Oh, truth. The truth. Is that what we’re talking about here right now? Why don’t we talk about the true life of a deacon sharpe, huh? Deacon the has-been drunk. Deacon, the ex-con. Deacon, the liar extraordinaire. You know, hanging out with you. It wouldn’t exactly boost my reputation, either.

Deacon: Oh, your reputation. Okay. Listen, next to you, I’m a saint.

Sheila: Okay. Look, let’s just not do this. All right? It’s bad enough that we have the forresters dictating our lives, telling us who we can and can’t see. If you and I start attacking each other, too, I mean, we’re not the problem. Steffy forrester is the problem. My son wants to see me. There’s no way steffy is ever going to let me see finn or hayes.

Deacon: You know, I’m the one who’s getting ganged up on here. Brooke and ridge, liam. You know, they’re triple teaming me. I mean, it’s all sorts of wrong, too, because hope reached out to me first.

Sheila: She reached out to you because she cares about you, deacon. Just like finn cares about me. I really think that if we can reach out to hope and finn and work together on this–

Deacon: Come on, no. We’re not working together, all right? I mean, come on, you’re frigging nuts, lady. We can’t do– look, this has been fun, but I got to go find some action and it’s not here, okay?

Sheila: Whoa. Whoa, whoa. Wait. Come on. Please. We can take down the forresters. I am desperate here. Please, deacon. We can’t do this alone. Together, we can do anything. Anything.

[ Dramatic music ]

Ridge: You should be in prison, not here, manipulating your daughter.

Hope: I invited him, ridge, he’s not doing anything wrong.

Brooke: Do I need to remind you of every thing deacon has done in the past?

Deacon: I took full responsibility.

Ridge: No one is buying your “father of the year” routine.

Deacon: You know what, I did my time, and I got out for good behavior, thanks to hope, for helping me through it.

Liam: Why, why didn’t you mention anything?

Hope: Because of this! I mean, because of how everyone is reacting.

Ridge: Because we’re here to protect you, that’s what we’re doing.

Brooke: And why now, honey? We were finally freed of him.

Hope: Because, in spite of everything, this man is still my father.

Deacon: Look, she invited me, brooke, and I wanted to come. I’m glad I did. It’s been way too long, sweetheart.

Brooke: You’re not going to come here again. And you’re not gonna see hope again either. Tell him, honey, please. Tell him he can’t be a part of your life.

Steffy: Well, look what we have here.

[ Chuckling ]

Finn: You like?

Steffy: I…love.

Finn: Mm-hm.

Steffy: I love you and all of this. What is the occasion?

Finn: Oh, you didn’t hear?

Steffy: What?

Finn: It’s steffy forrester appreciation day.

Steffy: Oh, is it?

Finn: Yeah. It was blowing up on social media. Hashtags and everything, all of it, the influencers–

Steffy: Really?

Finn: Yeah.

Steffy: I’m pretty sure it’s international puppy day, but…

Finn: Oh, is it?

Steffy: Yeah.

Finn: Well, they’re gonna have to share the day with the dynamic, gorgeous woman who is way cuter than any puppy I’ve ever seen.

Steffy: Aww. This makes me feel so appreciated, so…honored and adored. This is really sweet.

Finn: Well, it should. Because you’re my world.

Steffy: You’re amazing. BuT… why is it so blissfully quiet in here?

Finn: Ah, see hayes, sleeping. Kelly, I tried to keep her up as long as I could, but she was too exhausted after her dance clasS.

Steffy: Aww.

Finn: I figured you could just sneak in later and tuck her in.

Steffy: I will. You’re the best.

Finn: Well, I knew you were on your way home and figured that you’d had a long day.

Steffy: You know me well. Besides being with the kids, I have to say, there is nothing else I’d rather do, than be alone with my husband.

[ Hayes fussing ]

Finn: Hm. No, no, no.

Steffy: No!

[ Both chuckling ]

Finn: That wasn’t even five minutes.

Steffy: That little boy doesn’t want to miss out on anything.

Finn: Mm-hm.

Deacon: Look, I get it, okay? Y’all hate me. Not a big secret. But something tells me hope might not share your opinion.

Brooke: She hardly even knows you.

Deacon: I’m trying to change that. I mean, come on, she’s a grown woman. I think she’s entitled to make her own decision, whether or not she wants me in her life.

Brooke: She doesn’t want you around.

Ridge: Nobody wants you around.

Brooke: You’re a liar and a thief, and a terrible excuse for a–

Ridge: Slow down a second. I mean, hope turned out the way she did, because he wasn’t around, so give him some credit.

Liam: Guys, this is a lot, right now. It’s a lot to process. I think, in the meantime, though, you should leave.

Ridge: You should leave, before the kids come home.

Deacon: I’d like to meet my granddaughter. I want to see beth.

Liam: Okay, no that’s, I’m drawing the line. You gotta go, now.

Ridge: Get out.

Hope: Wait! I have something to say.

Hope: Maybe I shouldn’t have tried to do this with all of us together, I am sorry, if you feel blindsided and upset. I really thought I would have more time to, to talk about it with you all, and dad, I didn’t, I didn’t mean to ambush you–

Deacon: Sweetheart, it’s fine. No need for apology.

Brooke: Honey, nobody is blaming you for wanting to get to know your father better. You have a big heart, and you want to see the best in people, but you can’t be vulnerable to deacon. I know that’s not something that you want to hear.

Ridge: Your mom is right. He’s conned his way through his life, he wasn’t here, he didn’t raise you.

Deacon: I wish I could have been there more. I tried. I did, not hard enough. Look, I’ve made a lot of mistakes, I admit that, but I didn’t come here to make excuses, I came here to see you, see you all grown up. Hope, you’re a mother and a wife, you have your own clothing line. I am so proud of you. You deserve every success, every happiness in the world. And the fact that we were able to keep in touch through your letters, it meant a lot to me. And the fact that we’re able to do this, it’s incredible, but I love you too much to cause you any pain. It’s obvious what your family thinks about me, so i’ll tell you what. I’m not gonna cause any trouble. I’ll take off. I want you to know two things. I think about you all the time, and I will never stop loving you, because you’re my daughter, and nobody can take that away from us.

Ridge: See, that’s a speech, right? It’s good, it was long, but it was good. Where did you rehearse that, on the bus?

Deacon: See, there’s that winning personality I missed.

Ridge: And what do you know about winning?

Brooke: He’s just trying to protect hope.

Liam: Which is something ridge has done her entire life. Can you say the same? Can you?

Ridge: All right, time’s up. Let’s go.

Hope: Dad…

Deacon: It’s all right, honey. Don’t worry about it.

Brooke: Just leave, deacon. That’s something you’re good at.

[ Door clicking ]

Steffy: You’re like the baby whisperer. He never goes right back to sleep when I go in there.

Finn: What can I say, I got the magic touch.

Steffy: That is so unfair.

Finn: All right, if I’m being honest, I told him one of my dad jokes, he fell right asleep.

Steffy: Yeah, that sounds about right.

Finn: Yeah.

[ Both laughing ]

Steffy: This is so nice.

Finn: Hm.

Steffy: Such a cozy, little setup.

Finn: I didn’t want to overdo it. But, I may have made a playlist.

Steffy: Ooh, really?

Finn: Oh, yeah. All your favorite songs.

Steffy: Yeah?

Finn: Yeah, and none of the kids ones. I love those but we’re not listening to those–

Steffy: Oh baby, you really do love me. I can’t, I can’t either.

Finn: I love you more than you can imagine.

Steffy: I love you. I think we’re, we’re pretty good at this, you know, this whole marriage, kid thing.

Finn: Yeah, we are.

Steffy: Yeah, I know we’ve had some bumps along the way, but I truly feel like we got past all the hard stuff. The big one, obviously, sheila. That was a big challenge we weren’t anticipating, but I really think she got the message. She cannot be part of our family.

Brooke: Honey. What were you thinking?

Liam: I mean, did, do you really think that was safe? Bringing deacon into our home?

Hope: I can’t believe you are trying to talk me out of this.

Brooke: For good reason!

Ridge: Hey. I know he’s your father, but he really isn’T. He’s a low-life criminal. You don’t need him in your life.

Bartender: What can I get ya?

Deacon: What do you got?

Bartender: A boyfriend.

Deacon: Ouch. Lucky guy. What’s your name?

Bartender: Molly.

Deacon: Okay, molly, uh, you know what, I’ll have a soda and lime. Eh, you know what? Screw that. Make it a tequila soda and lime, the starting point for all great decisions.

Molly: You got it.

Sheila: Excuse me. Could I get a vodka martini up, a little dirty with three olives, please?

Molly: Coming right up.

Deacon: Figured you more for a pina colada.

Sheila: Right.

Deacon: Sheila? Sheila carter?

Sheila: Deacon.


Liam: So, why did you contact him?

Hope: Look, I get that none of you are fans of his, and that is why I didn’t want you worrying.

Liam: Look, it’s not that. I didn’t even realize you were interested in pursuing a relationship with your dad.

Hope: Well, I wasn’t sure about it then, and I’m still not sure. I haven’t seen him in years, and I haven’t had that much of a chance to get to know him as an adult, but I don’t know, now that I have children, something changed, okay? I can’t explain it. I felt compelled to reach out to him, and to try to make an effort to understand him better, and that is why I started writing him letters. That is all. Believe me, I am not trying to excuse what he has done in the past.

Brooke: Honey, you can’t count on him. You can’t believe one word that comes out of his mouth.

Ridge: Maybe he didn’t ask you for money today, but it will happen, the day will come.

Hope: Okay, do any, any of you trust my judgment?

Liam: It’s not–

Hope: At all!

Liam: Hope, it’s not about your judgment. It’s the fact that he has only ever failed you, so why would we let him do it again?

Brooke: Honey, let this be it. Don’t have anything more to do with deacon.

Sheila: You know, I am surprised to see you, deacon. I thought they locked you up and threw the key away.

Deacon: And I thought they carted you away in a straight-jacket. What, they kick you out for being too crazy?

Sheila: They kick you out for being an idiot?

Deacon: What, are you kidding me? They loved me in the joint.

Sheila: I’ll bet you they did.

Deacon: Ha ha. I mean the guards, I had them wrapped around my finger.

Sheila: Do you remember when you almost got me thrown in prison?

Deacon: Oh, you’re not still holding a grudge, are you? Come on, sheila, that was a long time ago.

Sheila: The forresters thought that I am the one that shot at quinn. But, it turned out to be just another one of your crazy, crazy schemes.

Deacon: One of my, one of my schemes? Are you kidding me? I’m a boy scout, compared to you. I mean, look, the forresters might dislike me, but they despise you. You’re like #1 on their enemy list.

Sheila: Yeah, well, what about you? Is somebody gonna come charging in here and drag your ass back to jail?

Deacon: Not that it’s any of your business, but I’ve been released. Free and clear.

Sheila: Then why are you in such a lousy mood?

Deacon: I went to see my daughter.

Sheila: Is that hope?

Deacon: Yep. I want to have a relationship with her, but brooke, ridge, and her husband made it pretty damned clear that that’s not going to be in the cards.

Sheila: Wow. Looks like you and me have a lot more in common than we thought.

Why hide your skin if dupixent

Finn: Look at him. He’s still awake.

Steffy: Well, he’s slowly falling asleep. He could be ready for the club… but–

[ Laughing ]

Finn: Just when you think we’re going to get some alone time, he’s like, “no, no, no, you don’T. Sorry mom and dad, no.”

Steffy: He’s such a charmer. So cool, you know, seeing him do something new everyday.

Finn: That’s what makes being a parent so rewarding.

Steffy: Mm hm, it’s such a huge responsibility, but honestly, it’s worth the anxiety. Just look at him. So helpless, you know? So sweet. I just feel like I… go into, you know, mama bear mode.

Finn: Hm. You’ll do anything for your kids.

Steffy: Yeah.

Finn: We both will.

Steffy: I hope you feel the same way. Sheila can have no role in our lives. No communication whatsoever.

[ Phone dinging ]

Hope: Well, is something wrong?

Finn: It’s her.

Hope: Sheila?

Hope: Have you considered that maybe I kept this from you because I wanted to explore the possibilities on my own?

Brooke: Honey, there are no possibilities where deacon is concerned.

Ridge: He is the same loser he’s always been, he hasn’t changed.

Liam: I know you want to believe he can change, but you know, the stakes are pretty high, right? So, what if your mom and ridge are right about this?

Hope: You’re all acting as if I don’t know my own father. As if I didn’t grow up hearing the stories about how he has been reckless and dishonest and selfish in the past, but that doesn’t make him forever irredeemable.

Brooke: The only good thing he has ever done is help create you.

Ridge: And that’s it. He’s a lost cause.

Liam: But hey, you tried, right?

Hope: It is not that easy for me to give up on him.

Brooke: I understand, honey, but you have to. Look at the wonderful family that you have with liam, the life that you have. Do you really want deacon coming in here, and causing chaos?

Liam: Especially when we have our own kids to think about, now?

Hope: Look, I get why you are all concerned, but no matter what he has done in the past, it doesn’t change the fact that he is still my father.

Deacon: I can’t see my daughter.

Sheila: I can’t see my son.

Deacon: You have a son? What did you, adopt a turtle?

[ Sheila laughing ]

Sheila: I gave birth to a boy a long time ago, and he just married steffy forrester.

Deacon: For real?

Sheila: Mm-hm.

Deacon: Wow.

Sheila: But I’m forbidden to see him.

Deacon: Well, I can’t really blame him there.

Sheila: Yeah, well, you know, I can’t blame brooke and ridge either, for not wanting you to be a part of hope’s life.

Deacon: The forresters, you know, they’re so high and mighty.

Sheila: Yeah, it’s like they’ve never done anything wrong in their privileged, little lives.

Deacon: Are you kidding me? They’ve had, they’ve had more scandals than everybody in this place, combined.

Sheila: Yeah, are we really that bad? Don’t, don’t answer that. Don’t answer that.

Deacon: I wasn’t going to.

Sheila: What if, what if we come together on this? Put our heads together and come up with something where we both get what we want.

Deacon: Wait a second, are you suggesting that you and I work together? Wow.

Sheila: You should be flattered that I even considered it.

Deacon: Creeped out is more like it. I just got a chill crawling up my spine.

Sheila: What spine.

Deacon: Very funny.

Sheila: You need me, deacon.

Deacon: Yeah, like a hole in the head.

Sheila: Look at you. God, you’ve been given a new chance at life, and you’re sitting here feeling sorry for yourself, moping around with your, your tail between your legs. God, are you really going to let the forresters win?

Deacon: I don’t give a damn about them. All I care about is hope.

Sheila: Well then, don’t give up. I’m not. I certainly am going to be a part of my son’s life.

Deacon: Well, I am going to have a relationship with hope, but how?

[ Sheila dryly chuckling ]

Sheila: Well, for the first time in your miserable life, you’re right, deacon. We are going to see our children. You are going to be with hope, and I’m going to be with finn and my grandson. The forresters, they don’t stand a chance with the two of us together, they don’t stand a chance.

Liam: So, how much longer does donna have the kids?

Hope: Um, another hour or so.

Liam: Huh, well, that gives us plenty of time. What can I say, I can’t get enough of you.

Hope: Well, under ordinary circumstances, I would be right there with you.

Liam: I feel like there’s a ‘but’ coming.

Hope: We have visitors coming. Uh, I invited mom and ridge, um, to come over.

Liam: Um, why?

Hope: Well, it’s, uh… it’s actually something I’m a little nervous about, and, um–

Liam: Oh my god, what’s going on? Are you okay?

Hope: So, uh, I have, uh, been meaning–

Brooke: Hi, honey.

Hope: Hi! Um, thank you for coming.

Brooke: Got your text. What did you want to see us about?

Thomas: So, I lost the belt, I added the jacket.

Steffy: Yeah, I like what you did with the hemline.

Thomas: It’s better, yeah?

Steffy: It was great before, but I really think this elevates it.

Thomas: I have to give credit where it’s due. Uh, those suggestions were made by paris.

Steffy: She’s definitely made an impact around here. Everything she’s doing with the foundation, her social outreach, and her input on your designs, like, it’s amazing. I’m impressed.

Thomas: Plus, she can really sing.

Steffy: Yeah.

Thomas: I’m still, like, amazed by her performance.

Paris: Hi.

Thomas: Hey!

Steffy: So, how was the game?

Zende: You are not going to believe what happened.

Zende: We just had the most incredible experience, didn’t we? Didn’t you?

Paris: It was pretty amazing.

Thomas: Yeah, dodger games are like the best, right?

Steffy: Ah, I can’t wait to take the kids there. And we can bring douglas too.

Thomas: Oh yeah, anything for a dodger dog.

Steffy: Oh gosh, so good. Hey, remember that time when you made me laugh so hard you–

Thomas: Oh yeah, you dropped it right in front of the guy–

Zende: Guys! Hey, hey, listen! The most unbelievable, fantastic thing happened. This woman right here is a rockstar.

Paris: Okay, I would not take it that far.

Zende: No, you have to own your brilliance. You should have seen her today.

Steffy: We did.

Zende: No, I mean at the game.

Steffy: We did! Thomas put on the game.

Thomas: We got to see you in all your glory.

Steffy: You were amazing! Incredible!

Thomas: Is there anything you can’t do?

Ridge: Well, you summoned us, and here we are.

Brooke: Yeah, what is it, sweetie? What did you want to tell us?

Liam: Yeah, I seem to be in the dark here as well.

Ridge: Everything okay?

Hope: Yeah. Uh, I mean, I’m not sure it will be for– well, I’m hoping it will, with time, but, heh, sorry, I’m, I’m a little nervous right now.

Brooke: Nervous about what?

[Door knocking]

Hope: Okay, that’s way sooner than I expected. Look, just try to keep an open mind, because I, I’m trying too, so.

Deacon: Daddy’s home. Read my eyes.

Zende: Seriously, paris, you were such a star out there.

Paris: Stop it.

Zende: No, I mean it, all self-assured and composed, like hundreds of thousands of eyes weren’t on you. I mean, these two couldn’t get enough. So, you guys, you just happened to be watching?

Thomas: Well, you going to the game got me all amped for it, so I put on the pre-game, and imagine my reaction. Now, you keep surprising me more and more.

Zende: Tell me about it. Singing the national anthem at a dodger’s game, how badass is that?

Steffy: We’re so proud of you.

Zende: You know, the more I think about it, the more I’m starting to realize how good you were at keeping this a secret from me until the bitter end. I mean, nothing about you gave it away. Are you sure you’re not an actress too?

Paris: Oh, please.

Steffy: I’m not shocked. Thomas and I were just talking about how talented you are. Everything you do around here.

Thomas: Yeah, we’re very fortunate to have you here at team forrester.

Paris: Oh, I am the fortunate one.

Zende: That all may be true, but no one’s luckier than me.

Brooke: Deacon, what the hell are you doing here?

Ridge: You should be in prison.

Liam: Yeah, so, so what, you broke out and now, you expect hope to hide you, or–

Deacon: All right, all right. I can see that you’re all shocked, which means that hope didn’t prepare you.

Hope: I was just about to. You just, you got here sooner than we–

Deacon: There was no traffic–

Ridge: Forget about traffic! Why are you here?

Brooke: Why aren’t you in prison where you belong?

Liam: You know something? I’m gonna call the police.

Hope: What?

Deacon: Don’t bother, kid. They’re not gonna care.

Liam: Yeah, why don’t we test that theory?

Hope: Liam.

Deacon: I got released. Yeah, there was overcrowding. Guess they wanted the space for the real criminals.

Ridge: Hm, why did you get out?

Brooke: God, I don’t believe it. Already?

Deacon: Already? Not from my perspective. It seemed like a lifetime. But, there was one positive outcome of being locked up that long. Forced me to take a good, hard look at myself. And, I didn’t like what I saw. So, I changed. I’m different than the man that you knew before. I’m reformed.

Brooke: God, here we go again.

Ridge: What do you want? Yeah, you always want a handout, right? So, how much is it gonna cost to get you out?

Deacon: That’s not why I’m here.

Ridge: Of course that’s why you’re here. How much?

Hope: You’re wrong about that, ridge.

Ridge: I don’t think I am.

Hope: He is not here to cause trouble, or to ask for money.

Brooke: Honey, I know this is complicated. He’s your father. So, you want to think the best of him, but you can’T. He will always take the low road. So, I’m with ridge on this. What’s it going to take to get rid of you?

Hope: Look, can we all just take a minute? He didn’t come here on his own.

Liam: What does that mean?

Hope: This was my idea. I invited him. Nyquil severe gives you powerful relief

Zende: This is cool.

Steffy: What?

Zende: The way paris is making a place for herself here at forrester creations. Not just at the foundation, I was sure that would be a slam dunk, but who would have thought that she would be giving design input? And not just on my stuff! Paris is across the hall right now, working with thomas on his, and he is actually listening to her.

Steffy: Thomas respects her opinions. I mean, we all do. She’s a smart girl. She has great taste, but in like an edgy, contemporary kind of way. Her insight is valuable.

Zende: And take it from me, she is loving the opportunity. Every time one of her suggestions is incorporated, it lights her up from within.

Steffy: Well, she is not the only one lit from within. You are too.

Zende: Yeah. I’m happy. Designing for hope for the future is my dream job, I got my dream woman, life is good. Better than good.

Steffy: I’m really happy for you.

Zende: Thank you.

Steffy: So you’ve really fallen for her?

Zende: Yeah, I, I guess so. I mean, it was scary, at first. I was so used to being single and free.

Steffy: Being single and free is so overrated.

Zende: Don’t get me wrong. I’m not knocking that life. It was very good to me, but… this is better. Paris makes everything better.

Thomas: I, I still can’t get over it. You sang at dodgers’ stadium. You were in the middle of the field with that beautiful voice.

Paris: I have to admit it was a really big thrill.

Thomas: I can only imagine. And, I mean, only. I could never, I don’t know, get in front of people like that, no one wants to hear me sing anyway, but, uh, have you always been that gifted? Or did you work for it?

Paris: You know, I have always loved lifting my voice in song, you know? But I started seriously singing in church. And in choir. And funny story, I actually had a girl group. Growing up, we wanted to be the next destiny’s child.

Thomas: You’re kidding. You know what? I bet I know which one you were.

Paris: Hm? Yeah, I almost always sang lead.

Thomas: Hm, I bet. How does that feel?

Paris: To sing?

Thomas: Not just to sing, but sing the way you do, with such passion and emotion and depth.

Paris: It’s like opening up, you know? Opening up my heart, my soul, and letting whatever comes out ride on a melody, and honestly, it’s really, really, really hard to describe, but… it always makes me feel better. Lighter, somehow.

Thomas: Wow, uh, thanks for sharing that with me.

Paris: Well, thanks for asking.

Brooke: You invited deacon here?

Ridge: Why would you do that? Don’t let him into your life, you’re gonna regret it.

Brooke: Honey, he can’t be trusted. He’s only going to take advantage of your goodness.

Liam: Just like he has, in the past.

Deacon: I’m trying to tell ya I’m not that guy anymore.

Brooke: And how many times have we heard that? Honey, don’t be fooled, especially if he starts drinking again.

Deacon: All right, look, i realize I’ve given you a lot of reasons to think that, but I’m being honest here, all right? I’ve changed. Because I wanted to. That’s what made the difference.

Ridge: Oh, listen to this guy. He was in prison for, what, five minutes, and now you come back, and you’re all warm and fuzzy, spreading peace–

Deacon: If you just give me a little time, that’s all I’m asking, a little time, a little benefit of the doubt, I know I can change your minds.

Brooke: I don’t believe it. I know you too well.

Ridge: We all do.

Liam: Hope, listen, okay? If you don’t tell him to just walk away, right now, all you’re doing is setting yourself up for disappointment, I’m telling you.

Brooke: I don’t understand why you’d want him here anyway.

Hope: Mom, I know all about his past. And I’m not saying I’m forgiving it all. I mean, how could I? Look I, I understand where you are all coming from. You’re just trying to protect me. You don’t want me to get hurt by my dad again.

Ridge: Yes because that is what he does.

Brooke: Send him away.

Hope: I can’T.

Brooke: Why not?

Hope: Because he’s my father.

To be a thriver with

metastatic breast cancer

Steffy: I am so happy for you and paris. You two are a good couple.

Zende: I agree.

Steffy: And honestly, this is the first time you’re not gonna need the family’s approval, because everybody loves her. And thomas is such a fan.

Zende: The forresters know class and grace when they see it.

Steffy: Yeah, and paris is certainly that.

Zende: Yeah, and she can sing.

Steffy: Oh my gosh, can she sing! You must have been so proud watching her.

Zende: Oh, beyond. I was thinking, “I am with that insanely beautiful, talented woman out there, and when she leaves, she leaves with me.” Best feeling in the world.

Steffy: You got it bad.

Zende: What can I say? I mean, paris and i are like anyone else. We’ve had our challenges, but I’m very optimistic about our future.

Paris: I am just so thankful and grateful to your family, for opening so many doors for me. And to you, the super famous fashion designer, I realize you don’t have to take advice from me.

Thomas: I wouldn’t, if your ideas sucked, but they don’t, okay? They’re actually really fresh with this attitude that I love. Look, I just, I really appreciate your input, paris.

Paris: Thanks. That means a lot.

Thomas: Who knows, maybe you should sing at the launch for the new collection?

Paris: Well, whatever you need, I’m there. I just can’t wait to see this coming down the runway.

Thomas: Oh, oh I’ve got it.

Brooke: So, how did you do it, deacon? How did you worm your way back into hope’s life?

Deacon: Brooke, that’s not how it happened.

Brooke: Sure it was. You reached out from prison, you knew she was kind and compassionate, and you worked her.

Deacon: That’s not true.

Brooke: What kinda trick did you play? Was it the pity party? “I was wrongfully accused.” Or, maybe you guilt-tripped her. “I’m your father, and you should care about me.”

Liam: Does she have that right? How did you pull this off?

Ridge: I gotta ask, what movie was playing in your mind when you were coming here from prison? Whatever it was, I’m sure we weren’t in it, but we are, we’re here, and we’re gonna protect her.

Deacon: She doesn’t need protection.

Ridge: Oh but she does, you know why? Because you’re standing right here.

Hope: Look, while I appreciate all of you jumping to my defense, what you are accusing my dad of, it isn’t true, okay? I’m the one who reached out to him.

Brooke: What? P>> Hope: My father was in prison. I felt bad for him, so I, I started writing him.

Deacon: Can I show you something, please? These are all from hope.

Brooke: You wrote those?

Ridge: How did, did you know about this?

Liam: Ya, no, no. Hell no. What is happening right now? How long have you been secretly corresponding with deacon?

Hope: Pretty much the entire time he’s been in prison.

Liam: Oh my god.

Brooke: And you didn’t tell us?

Hope: Well, no, mom. Look, I hated keeping something from you, from, from all of you, but obviously, I knew how you were going to react.

Deacon: Hope’s letters and cards were like a lifeline to me. They gave me the strength to get out of bed every morning. They gave me the ability to make it through one more miserable day there. They gave me purpose. They gave me inspiration, but most of all, most of all, they gave me the desire to be worthy of my beautiful daughter’s care and concern. Hope’s name is literally what she gave me. She gave me hope that someday, I’d get out of that cesspool. You know, that I would have the chance to… to be back here. To be the father that she deserves, a man she can be proud of.

Brooke: Oh, please.

Deacon: I never stopped thinking about you, the entire time I was away. Imagining this moment right now, being with you, as a free man. I love you so much, hope.

Ridge: That’s good though, right? You gotta say. I mean, you gotta say, that’S… “hope, that’s her name and that’s also what she gave me.” That’s my favorite. You know he’s playing you, right? Tell me you know that.

Liam: You can’t just come here and start brainwashing my wife, okay?

Deacon: I…

Brooke: You are not welcome here, deacon. You are never going to be a part of hope’s life. Never. Tell him, honey. Tell him!

Hope: The seamstress is working on this one. I can’t wait to see it on the model.

Steffy: Well, don’t let him slow this down with this nitpicking.

Hope: Oh no, I told thomas that I don’t want to change a thing.

Steffy: He’s always been a perfectionist, but when it comes to hope for the future, nothing less will do.

Hope: Well, his attention to detail is impeccable.

Steffy: I know I’m just being hard on my brother. He’s amazing, he’s such a talent.

Hope: Not to mention dedicated. I mean, when he isn’t spending time with douglas, he’s mostly here at the office.

Steffy: Yeah, um, up half the night, designing for you. He’s a hard worker, I just think he should be getting out. Am I right?

Hope: Okay, steffy, I, I understand that you’re worried that your brother still has feelings for me, and I get that you want him to move on and be happy with someone else, but believe me, I want the same thing for him too.

Paris: When zoey left town, I thought I might feel alone here.

Thomas: Well, I hope you don’T.

Paris: Not at all. Everyone here is so supportive and encouraging. I’m a part of an amazing team, and I get to make an impact with the foundation.

Thomas: And hope for the future.

Paris: You know, it’s definitely not what I imagined working at a fashion house would be like. The people are just…

Thomas: Not all bad?

[ Laughing ]

Paris: Well, when you ask for my honest opinion, you get what you get.

Thomas: Okay, that’s true. That’s true, and that’s what I need. Especially for the collection.

Paris: Yeah, it’s been super exciting, you know? Getting to see the process, all the designs. What you and zende do is so cool.

Thomas: Well, you know, as a designer, I can get so caught up in the way I look at it, you know? I’m seeing all these tiny, little details, but you, you know, you bring something new too. When you look at it, you think about the emotion that it evokes, and that kind of feedback is energizing.

Paris: Well hey, anything you need, I’m there. Even though I am not a designer.

Thomas: But you are an innovator, paris. I mean, look at the way you changed the foundation. You’ve got this special talent, you know, a creative spirit, and that, I am very intrigued by. I’m looking forward to getting to know you more.

Zende: Oh. Hey. Am I interrupting something?

Steffy: This building is full of beautiful, interesting women, but thomas doesn’t notice because he never looks up from his sketch pad. I mean, he could have a date every night, if he wanted to.

Hope: Have you talked to him about it?

Steffy: Does teasing count?

[ Both laughing ] Yeah, it’s probably not the best way to get him to open up.

Hope: Hmm, yeah, not exactly.

Steffy: I just want him to know that I trust him,& and I want him to happy and healthy.

Hope: Well, I mean, given thomas’ history, I understand why there’s reason to be concerned, but I really don’t think there’s anything going on.

Steffy: I don’t know.

[ Door knocking ]

Liam: Hey!

Steffy: Liam, hey!

Liam: My meeting got canceled, so I cut out early, and I thought, maybe my wife could… what, what’s going on?

Hope: Nothing.

Steffy: We were talking about thomas.

Liam: Ah. Okay.

Paris: No, you are not interrupting anything, and actually, I was just about to come looking for you.

Zende: Ah. Did you two finish your lovely design?

Thomas: We did, and she transformed it into something I’m really excited about.

Paris: Oh, I only gave one, tiny suggestion. Maybe two.

Thomas: You got an eye for this, paris.

Paris: Oh please, it’s not hard to see something special in your designs. They’re gorgeous and ground-breaking.

Zende: But somehow, you can look at them, and what will make them just a little bit better.

Thomas: Not everybody can do that.

Zende: Paris is full of surprises.

Paris: That’s right, and I have got a big surprise for you.

Zende: For me?

Paris: Yeah. You actually came just in time, because we actually can’t be late for this, so–

Zende: Wait, late for what?

Paris: The dodgers game.

Zende: Seriously?

Paris: Yeah! I know how much you wanted to go.

Zende: I have been waiting for this game all season, and I just didn’t get tickets in time.

Paris: Yeah, not only will you have tickets– never mind. You’ll find that out later, but we can’t be late.

Zende: Uh, well, let’s go. Do I have the best girlfriend in the world, or what? I can’t believe you did this. Thomas, didn’t I tell you? Paris is awesome. Woohoo!

Thomas: Well, you two have fun. I’ll be, you know… checking out the game, probably, so maybe I’ll see you on tv.

Paris: Yeah, maybe you will.

[ Crowd cheering ]

Zende: Paris, this is awesome. The tunnels of dodgers stadium? I mean, talk about a surprise! How did you even–

Paris: Hey, you haven’t seen nothing yet. You wanted a surprise and I promised you a surprise, and I am not gonna let you down.

Zende: This isn’t it? Okay, we better get to our seats, I don’t want to miss first pitch.

Paris: Trust me, you won’t miss a thing.

Steffy: Yeah, that’s fine, we can reschedule for next week. All right, bye.

Hope: I want thomas to find someone, but I also don’t think it’s a big deal, if he hasn’t yet.

Liam: I mean, I, I admit he doesn’t seem fixated on you, right now.

Hope: He’s not. Most of his time is spent with douglas, which is what we wanted.

Liam: Can’t complain about that.

Steffy: I love that they’re spending time together, I do, but thomas needs to get out, and that’s good for douglas. Thomas just needs to be happy and content with his life.

Liam: Oh!

Thomas: Hey, uh, liam, is everything all right?

Liam: Yeah, it’s good, it’s good. I just, I swung by to try to get hope to leave early.

Thomas: Oh, if you guys need a date night, I could watch the kids.

Hope: Oh, that’s nice of you to offer.

Liam: Yes, thank you!

Steffy: Yeah, and if you have a date, thomas, hope and liam could return the favor.

Liam: Okay, we should get going. Bye guys.

Hope: Bye!

Thomas: See ya. Why do I feel like I walked in on something?

Steffy: We were just talking.

Thomas: Let me guess, this is–

Steffy: No, no, no, it’s nothing. I actually wanna know about you and paris. How did that go?

Thomas: What do you mean?

Steffy: I know she was giving you and zende some input about the designs.

Thomas: Uh yeah, she’s been really helpful.

Steffy: I’m actually interested to hear what she has to say. Is she around?

Thomas: Uh, no. She was, but she took zende to the dodger game.

Steffy: Ah.

Thomas: Zende is a lucky guy.

Zende: Not a bad way to spend the afternoon.

Paris: Yeah, I did let hope know that we might be leaving the office a little early today.

Zende: We should really get to our seats. I want to grab a dodger dog before the game. The national anthem will start soon.

Representative: Hey, paris. Right on time.

Paris: Yeah. I couldn’t be late for this. Uh, deter, this is my boyfriend, zende.

Deter: Good to meet you. You must be pretty excited.

Zende: Uh, I am, this is so cool.

Deter: We have everything set up. All we need is paris. You’re ready?

Paris: As ready as I can be.

Zende: Uh, for what?

Deter: He…doesn’t know. You’re in for a real treat.

To be a thriver with

metastatic breast cancer

Liam: Listen to that delicious silence.

Hope: Mm hm. Kids won’t be back until after dinner.

Liam: Yes, and you know what that means.

Hope: Hm, that can we finally organize their rooms? Clean up their mess?

Liam: No, no, I did that with them this morning.

Hope: Wait a second. Did you plan this little rendezvous? What, what happened to your late meeting?

Liam: Well, that’s why we cleaned up. I knew you might have the house to ourselves tonight, you could relax, I don’t know, maybe light some candles. Read a book, soak in the tub, go down some obscure, social media rabbit hole.

Hope: Well, that does sound wonderful.

Liam: Yeah, I can even take off if you want. Give you a little me-time.

Hope: Nah-uh. Don’t you dare.

Steffy: Sounds like paris really got your attention.

Thomas: Yeah, well, I, I think of these things, these sketches like a designer does. I think about what this is going to do, but she sees it like… the impression that it makes, and what it says about the woman wearing it.

Steffy: That’s an interesting perspective.

Thomas: It’s one that I think hope for the future could use more of.

Steffy: Well, if you’re excited about it, so am I.

Thomas: Well, you know, everyone has something great to say about her work at the foundation, how wonderful she is, how caring, how giving. I think zende is right. She, she really is full of surprises.

Steffy: What kind of surprises?

Zende: Do I have the best girlfriend in the world, or what? I can’t believe you did this. Thomas, didn’t I tell you? Paris is awesome.

Thomas: I–

Steffy: Thomas, where did you go?

Thomas: What? Uh, sorry. Sorry.

Steffy: What kind of surprises?

Thomas: Um, I’m sorry, I was just thinking about how she is taking zende to the game. You know, I think I’m actually jealous.

Steffy: Oh, really?

Thomas: Yeah. I mean, you know how much the dodgers mean to me, and this is a really important game. Actually, you know what?

[ Scoffing ]

Deter: Okay, we’re coming out. It’s time.

Zende: It’s time for what? Paris, what is going on?

Paris: I’ll be right back, you can watch from here, okay? Wish me luck.

Zende: No!

Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, singing our national anthem tonight is a member of the los angeles fashion world, and a leader in our city’s philanthropic community. Please welcome, paris buckingham.

[ Applause ]

Thomas: Paris is singing the national anthem?

O say can you see

by the dawn’s early light

what so proudly we hailed

at the twilight’s

last gleaming a lot of people think dealing with copd

Hope: If this is what I get for leaving work early, then it’s half days from here on out.

[ Chuckling ]

Liam: Yeah? Well, I guess we just have to steal these moments whenever we can.

[ Gasping ]

Hope: Or, make more time for them.

Liam: Well, that’s tough for two busy parents.

Hope: I know, but I think it’s important to have this alone time, so I can show you how much I love you, my handsome, sexy, husband.

Liam: Wait, that was it? I thought there was gonna be, I thought there would be a whole list, like, handsome, sexy, funny, competent–

Hope: We don’t have time for that.

Liam: That’s fair. Same for you, I guess. Do you know something? Do you know when we were apart, I used to do this thing, ’cause I would lie awake at night, all the time, and I would try to remember every single thing that I love about you. I mean, every detail, your laugh, the face that you make when you’re telling the kids a funny story. How you would just touch my hand in the car, while we were driving, things like that. Just… all the things that I promised myself that I would never, ever take for granted, if I ever got to hold you again, and… I won’T. Ever.

Paris: And the rocket’s

red glare

the bombs bursting in air

gave proof through the night

that our flag

And the home of the


Zende: Woohoo!

Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, paris buckingham.

Zende: Nice! Go, paris!

Steffy: Wow!

Thomas: Did you know that paris could sing like that?

Steffy: Lullabies and kids’ songs, but nothing like that.

Thomas: She’s incredible.

Steffy: Yeah, that she is. I mean, finn and I, we enjoyed having her stay at our house. She was so good with the kids, and she is a powerhouse here at work. And what she’s doing with the foundation, all the input she’s giving, she’s really just putting new energy into it, new identity.

Thomas: Yeah, I mean I saw that, but… her voice, you know, it’s just such power, such confidence and emotion.

Steffy: Yeah, that’s paris.

Thomas: It’s beautiful.

Steffy: She is, inside and out.

Thomas: She really is.

Zende: Get over here!

[ Cheering ]

Paris: Oh my goodness, that was crazy.

Thomas: Paris has so much talent, I can’t believe it. I mean I know that she’s always had this enthusiasm, and style and sense of humor, but there’s so much more. I’ve never met anyone like her.

Thomas: I want to show you something, and see what you think.

Hope: Your latest?

Thomas: Yeah, I stayed up late. I wanted to have something new for you to see. Yeah, I’ll just, no, I’ll start over.

Hope: What, what are you doing?

Thomas: I don’t like it either. Sack it.

Hope: Liar.

Thomas: What do you mean?

Hope: I could see the excitement in your face, when you showed that to me. You’re proud of that design, and you should be.

Thomas: Really?

Hope: I loved it. Seriously, the lines, and the flow of the fabric. I really like the detail here, on the collar. I almost wonder if we could add studs, or maybe even some eyelets, possibly, for that? Um, honestly, I think this is going to be flattering from all angles, and it’s really going to make a statement on the runway.

Paris: Hey. I got your text. What’s so urgent?

Zende: I wanted to see you.

Paris: That’s it? I was in the middle of a meeting.

Zende: The monthly cyber security refresher.

Paris: Yes, a very boring meeting. Possibly, the most boring-est meeting ever. So, thank you. Wow, seems like you’re having a far more productive day than I am. This is new, right?

Zende: My latest. You’re the first person I’ve let see it.

Paris: Wow, I’m flattered.

Zende: I know that you’ll give me your honest opinion.

Paris: This is… what’s the word I’m looking for? Ah, divine.

Zende: Hey!

Paris: Hope is gonna flip out over this. Everyone will. It’s so… fresh, and fun, and vibrant. What?

Zende: I, uh, I can’t really hear you. I see your lips moving, but all I want to do is kiss you.

Paris: So, tell me, mr. Hot shot designer, is there really a company policy about kissing in the office?

Zende: Strictly prohibited, unless I’m the one being kissed and you’re the one doing the kissing. And needless to say, I would never let that affect my opinion of the job you’re doing here, of course.

Paris: Oh, phew.

Zende: Seriously, though, I don’t think you realize how valuable you’ve become to this place, and in such a short amount of time, too. First, to the foundation, and now, with the input you’re giving in hope for the future, no, hope really values your input and design suggestions, and so does thomas. They’re both really impressed with you. But no one is as impressed as I am.

Steffy: What is going on in here?

Thomas: I was showing hope my latest design.

Hope: Your brother worked all through the night, to show me something new.

Steffy: Wow, an all-nighter, huh?

Thomas: Yeah, I was in the zone, you know? I didn’t want to break my creative momentum.

Steffy: You sure that’s all it was?

Thomas: What does that mean?

Steffy: I don’t know, maybe you’re just trying to score some brownie points with hope?

Hope: Well, if he is, it’s working. Take a look.

Steffy: Not bad.

Thomas: Not bad?

Steffy: I’m messing with you. Gosh, you creative types and your egos.

Hope: Well, I think it’s great. And, I can’t wait to see what’s next.

Steffy: Same.

Thomas: So, is there anything you want?

Steffy: Oh, you mean, besides wanting my office back?

Hope: Ooh, sorry, we didn’t mean to invade your space. Let’s just go to the design office.

Steffy: No, no. It’s fine, you can stay. I’d actually love to hear what thomas is thinking.

Hope: Well, I mean, I, for one am grateful for all of the hard work and effort he’s put putting into my line, it means a lot.

Steffy: I’m sure. And I’m sure thomas is very committed to you and your success. I’ve been telling everyone…

Thomas: So, how are my niece and nephew? I guess that hayes is probably up and walking around, by now? Doing jumping jacks?

Steffy: No, but if his uncle doesn’t get out to see him anytime soon…

Thomas: I will, okay? It’s just been very busy with work.

Steffy: You know, all work and no play makes you a really… miserable brother.

Thomas: I’m picking up what you’re putting down.

[ Laughing ]

Steffy: I’m just saying, you need to have like, a healthy social life, ’cause you don’T.

Thomas: Wow, okay, you know what? My social life is fine, so, if we’re through with the interrogation…

Steffy: No interrogation here. I just want to know what you’re doing. Are you seeing someone? If you are, what’s she like? I’m just curious.

Hope: Yeah, now I am curious too. Are you seeing someone new?

Thomas: What is this, gang up on thomas?

Zende: Who’s ganging up on you?

Paris: If we are interrupting, we can come back later.

Thomas: Please. Stay. I don’t want them prying more into my love life.

Hope: Hm, someone is full of secrets.

Thomas: Zende, so you were telling me about this amazing sketch you had? It was wonderful and you were really amped about it.

Paris: Yeah, he should be, because it’s just–

Zende: Divine, according to paris.

Steffy: That’s quite the endorsement. So, you really like it?

Zende: Actually, she was my inspiration for it. She gave me some new insight, a fresh perspective on my creative process, that I think will make me a stronger designer, hopefully.

Hope: Wow, that just makes me want to steal you away for myself, but I have a feeling that steffy and ridge won’t allow it.

Steffy: Right, I wish I could loan you, paris. You could be working for hope for the future, working on the forrester foundation, and you could be at my house with my kids, hanging out with me.

Thomas: Seems like steffy likes you.

Paris: Well, I like steffy and finn too. I will treasure the time that I spent there. But, I had to move out and move on.

Thomas: Well, speaking of moving on, I would love to see this divine design that you’ve come up with, and I have a few sketches of my own to show you.

Zende: Sounds good.

Thomas: You coming?

Paris: Me?

Thomas: Yeah, I wanna hear some of this incredible input you got.

Zende: We both would.

Paris: Okay, sure.

Hope: Bye. Paris has been a really wonderful addition.

Steffy: She’s cool, right? It was so nice, getting to know her, when she was staying at my house. But honestly, I think zende is her biggest fan.

Hope: I think he likes her.

Steffy: Oh, he’s into her.

Thomas: Okay. I just, I don’t know about this one. You know, I keep working on it, I keep tweaking it, but nothing seems to help. This one though, I am very happy with.

Zende: Yeah, you should be. It’s classic thomas forrester.

Thomas: I didn’t know there was a classic thomas forrester.

Zende: Of course there is, right, paris?

Paris: Sorry, I’m just thinking about what you said. What if you raised the hemline a few inches, and added a cool, fun jacket in a bold, contrasting color? I really love the amorphous feel of this dress, the way that it falls. Just a few suggestions.

Thomas: You know, you’re right. That could, that could work.

Zende: This is why I love paris’ feedback. She comes at it in a completely different way, than we do as designers.

Thomas: Zende makes a good point. You’ve got a unique perspective. I could see why he’s so taken with you. You’ve always got a keen eye for fashion, but you’re bringing some sort of passion to everything you do. Forrester is lucky to have you. Family is just very important.

Zende: Occasionally, my cousin here gets it right. And this is one of those times. Forrester is lucky to have you, and so am I.

[ Phone dinging ]

Paris: Problem?

Zende: No, just something I have to take care of. Can we wrap this up later?

Thomas: Yeah, sure.

Zende: Shouldn’t be long.

Thomas: Uh, I’m actually glad we’re alone. There’s something that I wanted to say to you.

Steffy: The latest hope for the future sales seem strong. I assume you’ve seem them.

Hope: Uh, yes, and I shared them with thomas earlier too.

Steffy: You two spend a lot of time together, huh?

Hope: Um…well, sure, yeah. He’s a critical part of my team, not to mention, we co-parent douglas.

Steffy: But, I’m sure you don’t just talk about work, and thomas’ son.

Hope: Well, we have been known to talk about hmm, shortcuts to work, the dodgers, whether or not pam should add raspberries to her lemon bars. Why all the questions, steffy?

Steffy: I’m just curious.

Hope: About?

Steffy: My brother, if you picked up on anything.

Hope: Like?

Steffy: Like, if there is a woman thomas is interested in.

Paris: Am I in trouble?

Thomas: No, it’s just, like, zende and hope have been saying. You’ve become an integral part of hope for the future.

Paris: And I am enjoying it thoroughly.

Thomas: Well, me too. But, I do feel like we should clear the air about something.

Paris: Okay.

Thomas: Zoe. The way I used her to try to get to hope, it was wrong. I didn’t treat your sister how she deserves to be treated. I’m sorry for that. I am sorry that I hurt her. I genuinely did care for your sister.

Paris: You just cared about hope more.

[ Scoffing ]

Thomas: I wanted to be with hope. I loved her. I wanted us to have our little family with douglas, you know? But that’s what I wanted. I wasn’t thinking about what she wanted. She’s in love with liam, she wants a family with him, and I, well, I just couldn’t stand that. And so, I did things that I regret. And zoe had to pay the price for my obsession with hope. Fortunately, she was able to, you know, put it behind her and move on. That doesn’t change what I did. That doesn’t change what, I’ll always regret what I did to your sister. I hope you can believe that.

Paris: You know, I do believe that. You know, I have heard the stories, and I realize that you haven’t always been a saint, but neither has my sister. She’s made mistakes. One that I think will haunt her for the rest of her life, to some degree. But… zoe’s changed. She’s completely turned her life around, and from what I can tell, so have you. I see how you are, here at work, the way you treat people, the respect you show them, and I also see how you are with douglas. The love that you give him, the love that he gives you, and it’s beautiful.

Thomas: Douglas is the most important thing in my life. I’d do anything for him.

Paris: I believe that too. You know, my instincts are usually, always, pretty great. And, I’ve got a feeling about you.

Thomas: Well, what do your instincts say about me?

[Music: “I swear”]

Hope: So you’re asking me about thomas’ love life?

Steffy: Is that out of line, for some reason?

Hope: No, not at all, but you heard him, before.

Steffy: Yeah, I heard him change the subject.

Hope: Well, that’s my point. If thomas had opened up to me, then I wouldn’t have been asking him that question to begin with.

Steffy: Yeah, but then he tried to skirt around it.

Hope: Well, I mean, if I knew something, I wouldn’t have asked that question to begin with, so…

Steffy: So, you’re not covering for him?

Hope: Steffy, you want me to swear on a, I don’t know, a stack of fashion magazines that I’m telling the whole truth, and nothing but the truth? Because I am.

Steffy: Fine, I believe you. You know thomas. I just want him to find someone, and given his history, he’s not too lucky with love.

Hope: And you’re concerned about him, potentially, falling back into old patterns, especially with… me. I get it.

Steffy: Yeah. I really want him to move on. And I know that he has a troubled past, but he is a great guy. He is sweet, and he’s kinda handsome, I guess. But he’s charming.

Hope: I don’t disagree, which is why I think it’s only a matter of time, until your brother catches the eye of some lucky lady.

Thomas: Is that a loaded question?

Paris: What my instincts tell me about you?

Thomas: Yeah, I mean you don’t have to answer if you don’t want to, but I do want you to, so…

Paris: Well, what if you don’t like my answer?

Thomas: Well, you know what, I am a grown up. I’m kinda grown, I’m getting there, I’ll be a grown up. I can be a grown up about this.

Paris: Great, okay. Well, what my instincts tell me about you are… that you’re not all bad.

Thomas: That is a huge vote of confidence.

Paris: I call ’em like I see ’em.

Thomas: Yeah, well, so do I. And, you know, I can see what zende sees in you. Obviously, you’re beautiful. That’s no question, but you also have this incredible energy about you. I can see why finn and steffy didn’t want to let you go.

Paris: Let’s talk about you.& Enough about me.

Thomas: I thought we were talking about me.

Paris: It’s just the way that you were talking about hope, about your history, I just got the feeling that… obviously, you really loved her.

Thomas: And?

Paris: I’m just wondering if it’s difficult for you to work so closely with her. Let alone, you know, being co-parents for douglas. It must be challenging, given the plans that you once had for the three of you.

Thomas: Yeah, it is hard. That’s why I dive into work so much. It keeps me focused. Occupied. Does that make any sense?

Paris: Oh yeah, perfect sense. I totally understand trying to put a lid on feelings and emotions. So, this jacket, what about, maybe, adding a little pointed collars? Some pocket patches, make it a little bit edgier?

Thomas: Yeah, uh, I like it. You are really good. I better watch out. You’re gonna come take my spot on the hope for the future line, right.

Paris: Oh, hardly.

Thomas: All kidding aside, I am glad I get to work more closely with you. You keep me on my toes. That’s good, it’ll make me a better designer, make me a better person. Who knows, maybe I can teach you something, huh? Seriously, it will be nice to work more closely with you, and maybe even get to know you better.

[ Dramatic music ]

Eric: I’ve tried everything, ridge. Nothing has helped me. I cannot satisfy my wife in that way anymore.

Ridge: So, your solution is what? To let her cheat?

Quinn: That’s not what he’s saying.

Eric: No, let, let me do it. It’s my doing, after all. It’s not cheating, if it’s my ideA.

Ridge: What, I don’t even– she’s having sex with carter. He has his hands all over your woman, and that can’t be okay with you–

Eric: I don’t want to be alone in this house anymore.

Brooke: Poor eric.

Katie: I just, this is so out of character for him. I can’t believe that he would put up with something like this.

Brooke: He must not be thinking clearly.

Katie: He’s in a very difficult position.

Brooke: I’m sure he’s feeling very fragile right now.

Katie: To not be able to live up to his wife’s expectations in the bedroom? I mean, I understand that sex is a very big part of intimacy, but to give quinn a hall pass?

Brooke: How could she even agree to this? How could quinn sleep with carter again?

Finn: Thanks for listening.

Hope: Of course. I get it. You’re not in an easy position. But, I don’t fault you for wanting to get to know your birth mother. It’s just there is such a complicated history with steffy’s family and her.

Finn: Couldn’t get any messier, that’s for sure.

[ Chuckling ] But, it’s nice to have someone to talk to. About sheila.

Sheila: Come on, son. I know you’d want to, if it weren’t for steffy. Just text me back.

[Door knocking]

Sheila: Hey.

Keith: Hey, sheila. The bellman said you left your sweater down in the lobby.

Sheila: And the assistant manager brings it up to me?

Keith: I was just checking in on you.

Sheila: Thank you. It’s very kind of you.

Keith: We need the room. You were supposed to be out–

Sheila: I told you, I’m not going anywhere until I see my son–

Keith: Your son and your grandson, yeah.

Sheila: Oh, well, you remembered.

Keith: Did you end up texting him?

Sheila: I did.

Keith: Good for you. You hear anything back?

Sheila: No, not yet.

Hope: Do you think you’re going to text sheila back?

[ Sighing ]

Finn: I’m not sure if I should. Steffy doesn’t want me to have anything to do with her.

Steffy: Hey!

Hope: Hey, welcome back, how was it?

Steffy: It was great. We went to the park, got some ice cream.

Finn: Ah, rocky road?

Steffy: You know it.

Hope: Oh, but, kelly is going to be wired all day. Where is, where is she?

Liam: Which is why I dropped her off at a friend’s, for a play date. Because I’m a genius.

Finn: Good call.

Steffy: So, how’d everything go? Did we miss anything?

Katie: Oh, I’m sure quinn jumped at the chance.

Brooke: It’s one thing for eric to propose such an arrangement, but it’s another thing for quinn to actually go along with it.

Katie: She claims to love him, and yet she ends up in carter’s bed again.

Brooke: If she really, truly cared about eric, she wouldn’t be doing this.

Katie: It doesn’t matter that he’s allowing it. It’s wrong. I mean, no matter how you slice it, quinn is disrespecting eric on a very deep level.

Ridge: You deserve better than this.

[ Quinn scoffing ]

Eric: Ridge, I’ve made a decision, it’s done. I want my wife to be happy.

Ridge: Because you think she’s gonna leave you.

Quinn: I’m not leaving your father.

Ridge: You should leave him, that’s what he needs.

Eric: All right, I’ve had enough of this. That’s it.

Ridge: Brooke, me, steffy, the girls, everyone is here.

Quinn: What?

Ridge: You’re not gonna be alone, but this one, needs to go. You need to be gone.

Sheila: Well, maybe texting him was a mistake.

Keith: Why, ’cause the wife doesn’t like you?

Sheila: It goes a little deeper than that.

Keith: Just give it some time. Not everyone texts back right away, he’ll respond, eventually.

Sheila: Well, it’s not like I’m in any rush. One way or another, I am going to be a part of my son and my grandson’s lives.

Steffy: Children are a blessing, but they’re also very exhausting.

[ Laughing ]

Liam: That’s very true, but we had a great time, and, I think, kelly was happy to have us to ourselves.

Hope: Oh, I bet. It’s always so special for her.

Steffy: Yeah, she loved it. She felt like a queen.

Hope: Mm, and she should.

Finn: And especially since hayes has been getting a lot of the attention, lately.

Liam: Well, he kinda earned it. He’s really cute.

Finn: Well, yeah.

Steffy: Yeah, we’re not biased or anything.

[ Chuckling ]

Finn: Yeah, kelly, she’s been a patient big sister, and I am glad she got to spend some time with you guys alone. Just a little bummed you didn’t bring any ice cream back for hope and me.

Hope: I was just about to say the same thinG.

Finn: Yeah, hello?

Steffy: Next time we’ll, well, we’ll bring it. We won’t forget.

Liam: We did, it’s just I ate it. Listen, we’ll go back for round two, with beth and douglas, how’s that?

Hope: Sounds good, I am sure they will be up for that.

Liam: Well, thank you for making today so easy on all of us.

Steffy: Yeah, we really appreciate it.

Hope: Oh, please, you don’t have to thank me, I know how much kelly loves her mommy and daddy time. Besides, we’re all one, big family. And family always comes first.

Brooke: Any wife committed to her husband would never have agreed to go along with this shocking offer.

Katie: Well, quinn has no heart. She certainly doesn’t have the heart to deal with something like this.

Brooke: What heart? I don’t think she was ever born with one.

Katie: And he just keeps defending her. I mean, he keeps saying these things to keep her around.

Brooke: She just brings him down. She’s taken away all of his pride, and all of his dignity.

Katie: Well, it’s not fair to keep stringing her husband along like this. If she wants to be with carter, she should be with carter.

Brooke: Yeah, and set eric free.

Ridge: You think she’s doing you a favor? You think it’s some big sacrifice, having sex with carter? How do you do that? How does carter do that?

Eric: Carter is a good man. Carter’s your best friend.

Ridge: No, he’s not. He’s not my friend at all. He’s not who I thought he was.

Eric: That’s not true. I asked him to be there for my wife in a way that I couldn’T.

Ridge: He could have done the honorable thing and said no, maybe?

Eric: He did, and so did quinn.

Quinn: We didn’t want this. Carter and I fought this.

Eric: I pushed it.

Ridge: Oh you fought it?

Quinn: Yes, we did, you’re not listening to your father!

Ridge: I’m listening. You know what I hear? You need to get out of this house. Today.

Brooke: I am glad you live next door to eric. You’re close by if he needs anything.

Katie: You know, it’s fun being neighbors. I like knowing that he’s right down the hill.

Brooke: Yeah, you can be there for each other. But right now, eric is the one that needs protecting from his crazy wife.

Katie: I just wish that he could see himself, the way we see him as this remarkable, attractive man.

Brooke: I know. He is. He’s so handsome, and always been so sweet. That’s why I married him all those years ago.

Katie: I’ve been over there quite a lot, lately, and there’s just this emptiness about him, that wasn’t there before.

Brooke: We have quinn to thank for that.

Katie: Well, I think he’s hanging on to this relationship because he doesn’t want to be alone in that house when he comes home from work. I mean, that’s what’s driving this, that fear. The house has always been so alive with children, and grandchildren and parties, and holidays, and weddings, and you know, eric seems lonely. I’m sure he thinks, “well, if I lose quinn, “then what do I have left?”

Eric: Ridge, I am your father. You can’t talk to me like this.

Ridge: I’m sorry, dad, but someone has to get through to you.

Eric: I want you to drop this. I will not be dictated to.

Quinn: Okay, look. Ridge, you have to listen to your father, okay? Can’t you see how hard this is for him? How humiliating it is? I mean, I mean, why are you making everything worse?

Ridge: Oh, I’m making things worse? How about you take responsibility for things you do, for once in your life? You could have done that, you could have said, “no, I’m gonna support my–”

Quinn: I tried.

Ridge: “I’m gonna stand by him.”

Quinn: I tried to! He wouldn’t let it happen.

Ridge: You ran to carter.

Quinn: That is not what happened. Eric pushed us together.

Eric: I did, I did. She didn’t do anything that I didn’t ask her to do.

Ridge: Of course, it’s amazing to me. You’re gonna defend her, until the end of days. How do you do that? She’s having sex with another man. This isn’t okay, it’s not okay. Didn’t you say you love this man?

Quinn: I do, he’s my husband.

Ridge: Well then, there you go. Why don’t you prove it? Why don’t you take this ugly picture, and whatever you got, and get out this door? And don’t come back.

Hope: We are very lucky to have such a happy, healthy bunch of kids.

Liam: Yeah, I guess they’re all pretty great.

Finn: Even at three in the morning.

Hope: Even when they refuse to nap.

Liam: Even when they refuse to do their homework.

Steffy: When we have to hear that truck song, over, and over, and over again.

Liam: And over and over and over.

Finn: Yes, that is kelly’s current favorite one.

Liam: Oh, you’ve heard it?

Finn: Yeah! Yeah, I have.

Steffy: Yeah, about 1700 times.

Hope: Well, it’s a good thing they’re so adorable, right?

Steffy: Yeah.

Finn: All jokes aside, who are we kidding? They are perfect in every way.

Liam: And we’d be lost without them.

Steffy: That’s true. And honestly, I can’t wait to get back to hayes.

Hope: There’s nothing like the connection between a parent and a child.

Steffy: Under normal circumstances, I would agree, you know, most parents want what’s best for the children… there’s only one exception, you know?

Liam: Oh! You’re talking about she-who-shall-not-be-named.

Steffy: Yeah. It is wild. Like, out of all the birth mothers out there, you got stuck with sheila. I mean, come on.

Keith: I don’t mean to be pushy, but my boss is telling me we have this room booked beginning tomorrow.

Sheila: You don’t really think I care about that, do you, keith? I am totally concentrating on seeing my son and my grandson, and when there’s a will, there’s way, right? I always get what I want.

Keith: Oh, I can see that. I’ll talk to my boss about extending the room.

Sheila: Thank you.

[ Door closing ] Come on, come on, finn. Just text me back. Mama misses her boys. I’m alphonso, and there’s more to me than hiv.

[ Phone tapping ]

Liam: I can’t imagine how shocking it must have been to finally meet your birth mother, and then realize that she is, you know, who she is, what she’s done to the family.

Finn: It’s been a real struggle.

Steffy: Yeah. Sheila’s made it so hard on finn. She’s refusing to give up.

Hope: But a mother’s bond with their child, it can be really strong.

Steffy: With sheila? It’s obsessive.

Hope: I mean, obviously, it’s not at all, at all the same situation, but I remember when we were told that beth was gone and yet, I still felt her presence, I mean, it can be that powerful.

Steffy: Yeah, I, I get that. But luckily, finn has a mom, li. She’s been there, and she’s provided such an amazing connection and a positive outlook on life. I don’t even know. I’m sorry, I don’t know why I’m bringing up sheila. I just hope to god that she never comes back into our life. Ever again.

[ Phone dinging ] I think we’re ready to go, right? Yeah. And thank you for helping liam and me spend the day with kelly.

Hope: Uh, absolutely. We should do it again sometime.

Steffy: Yeah, we should.

Liam: So, I have a work call. I’m gonna say goodbye now.

Finn: Bye.

Steffy: See you.

Liam: Okay.

Steffy: Hey, give douglas and beth a hug for me.

Liam: Ah, you know I will.

Steffy: Okay. You coming?

Finn: Yeah, right behind you.

Steffy: Okay. Thanks.

[ Door clicking ]

Hope: Was that a text from sheila?

Finn: Thanks for not mentioning anything in front of steffy.

Hope: Of course. I know how important steffy and your family is to you, so…

[ Sighing ] Good luck with everything.

Finn: Yeah. Thanks.

Katie: I just wish there was something more we could do.

Brooke: Me too. But, eric knows that we’re in his corner, and he’s very grateful for all the support. Especially you, reaching out to him like that. He’s just had so much heartbreak in his life. At this point, he shouldn’t feel alone.

Brooke: No, he shouldn’T. But he also shouldn’t agree to a loveless life with quinn.

Ridge: This whole situation is sick and perverted, and it needs to stop.

Quinn: Really, so shaming your father, it’s not going to help–

Ridge: It’s the truth! Dad, you can move in with me, we can move in with you, you’re not gonna be alone.

Eric: No, that’s right, I’m not gonna be alone. I’m gonna be here, and quinn’s gonna be right here with me.

Ridge: Dad, this is–

Eric: Look, this is the way it is. This is my life now.

Ridge: It doesn’t have to be.

Eric: I don’t need your permission. You don’t get a say.

Ridge: I’m your son. I’m not just gonna walk away from this fiasco.

Eric: All right, you’ve expressed your indignation. Now, I’ve heard enough. I want you to go.

Ridge: Dad, this is not your only house–

Eric: I said go, ridge, go, go home!

Brooke: Katie, what is this? You’re taking quinn’s side?

Katie: No, no. It’s just that she’s telling the truth for once in her life.

Brooke: That eric wants her to have an affair? There’s no way that’s possible.

Katie: Trust me. It is. Eric is encouraging quinn and carter to be together.

Ridge: No, you wouldn’t do that. You couldn’t do– you would never–

Eric: I would never what? Ask my wife to be with another man? But I did, ridge. Quinn’s back with carter because of me.

Hope: More coffee?

Finn: Sure. You know, I…I’m sorry. I didn’t intend to stay this long. If I’m keeping you from something, feel free to just kick me out anytime.

Hope: No. It’s, uh, it’s totally fine. I mean, you might as well just stick around until steffy and liam get back.

Finn: I’m uh… I’m glad kelly’s spending time with the two of them.

Hope: No, I am too. And I know she loves it. But it is kinda weird, though, right? I mean, my husband and your wife together at the park with their child.

Finn: Yeah. Yeah, it… it is. Tell me about it. Weird is good.

Hope: Very good.


Sheila: A picture? A picture, that’s all a mother gets to have. No communication, not even a phone call. I should be getting to know my son, right now. My grandson. But no. I’m being kept away from them. All because of steffy.

Hope: So, you settling in to all this?

Finn: I mean, I think so. It’s been quite a wild ride jumping into steffy’s world. Or into your world. The forresters, and logans, and spencers and all this crazy history and the backstory.

Hope: I mean, your head must be spinning.

Finn: Yeah. You don’t know half of it. I guess you kind of do. You’ve lived through all the craziness. You’ve survived.

Hope: Barely.

Brooke: I know you like to see the best in people, but in this case, you cannot take quinn at her word.

Katie: Did I say I was trusting quinn? No, no, I don’t trust quinn.

Brooke: Well, you’re believing all of her lies! I thought you were smarter than that.

Katie: Well, this time, she’s not lying. Eric wants quinn to spend time with carter.

Brooke: While he’s at home alone? How did quinn convince you of that?

Katie: She didn’T. Eric did. He’s the one that told me.

Eric: Quinn and carter have my blessing.

Quinn: I was trying to tell you that.

Ridge: I’m not– I don’t– I’m not talking to you.

Eric: Don’t do that, ridge.

Ridge: What possible reason could you have for any of this? What possible reason could you have–

Eric: Do you want me to have to say this out loud to you? To you?

Ridge: So you… you can’T. You’re not able to.

Eric: That’s right. I can’T. It’s not physically possible. Not anymore. If that part of life is over for me, doesn’t mean it has to be over for her. Want your clothes to smell freshly washed

Finn: I don’t know the full extent of it, but it sounds like it was quite the roller coaster you and steffy were on. A lot of back and forth to liam.

Hope: Well, there is A… a lot of history there and he has loved us both, and that’s the reality and I’ve come to accept that. But honestly, it helps knowing that steffy is happily married to you, so thank you finn, for getting us all off that merry-go-round.

Finn: My pleasure. Seriously, I’m so glad I met steffy, and falling for her, and having hayes, and getting marrieD. It just… kind of feels like the pieces are falling together for me.

Hope: Life has a way of working out.

Finn: Right? And then I finally met my birth motheR. Well, yeah. I mean, that hasn’t exactly worked out, but I just… you know what I mean. Things are happening for me.

Hope: Well, some things are better than others. I mean, of all people to have given birth to you… sheila carter.

Keith: Three more nights, or just two?

Sheila: Keith, are you trying to get rid of me? Every time I see you, you’re always asking me this.

Keith: No, no. It’s just, there’s a convention coming to town this week, and people who spend all day in boring seminars tend to let loose in the hotel bar after. Spending money. Whereas you… three more nights it is. Take it your date went well.

Sheila: Actually it– it wasn’t a date. I got to meet my grandson for the first time.

Keith: Congrats.

Sheila: Yeah. You’re always asking when I’m gonna be checking out. I’m not going anywhere. Not until I see my son and my beautiful grandson again.

Brooke: I felt bad for eric before. But now, knowing that he’s encouraging this…

Katie: He thinks it shows how much he cares for quinn.

Brooke: God, what is wrong with quinn? Can’t she see that this is a cry for help?

Katie: I… I don’t know, we knew she was selfish, but this is just– it’s beyond.

Brooke: Eric made it seem like he was okay with it?

Katie: He tried. But he’s hurting, brooke. I can tell that he’s hurting so bad.

Ridge: Huh. What has this woman done to you?

Eric: Ridge, are you listening to me?

Ridge: I’m listening.

Eric: Look, it’s not quinn, it’s me–

Ridge: I always listen to you, dad. I listen. Can you listen to me for one moment? This woman has played you from day one. And she’s getting so good at it now, that she’s convinced you that she should be in another man’s bed. So, listen to this, dad. What we need is change. Starting with this thing. That hideous portrait. Get it off the wall. Get her out of here. How do you do that? How do you go after a vulnerable man? How do– I know, I know. Of course, because you want everything, don’t you? You want the big house. You want the picture over the fire place, you want the forrester lifestyle. But you also want to be in carter’s bed. You know what? Game over. Take your stuff and get out, now!

Eric: That’s enough, ridge. That’s enough! Quinn’s not going anywhere. My nunormal?

Sheila: My son, my grandson, why not just go see them, you’re probably wondering. But my son’s wife won’t allow it. I’ve tried my best with her and she just wants to make me out to be some sort of a villain.

Keith: I’m sorry to hear it. I should probably get back to it. It doesn’t hurt to reach out.

Sheila: Excuse me?

Keith: To your son. Don’t involve his wife, deal with just him. Text him, tell him how you feel. Maybe he’s feeling the same.

Finn: I fantasized about meeting her my whole life. The woman who carried me, gave me life. My birth mother! And then, enemy number one to my bride’s family. Not… not something I was expecting.

Hope: Well, but, you understand though. Right? I mean, after hearing everything that she’s done.

Finn: Yeah, I get it. I have to keep her away from steffy and hayes. And that means keeping her away from myself too.

Hope: Has she tried reaching out? I mean, have you talked to her since? No judgment here.

[Phone chiming] Is something wrong?

Finn: It’s her.

Hope: Sheila?

Brooke: So, what do we do? How do we help eric?

Katie: I’ve been thinking about this a lot, and my gut tells me that it’s not ridge’s strategy. We can’t make it seem like we’re attacking eric.

Brooke: Ridge is just worried. Understandably.

Katie: Sure, absolutely. But he’s gotta understand that this is personal for eric, he’S… he’s embarrassed.

Brooke: Eric needs guidance. He needs people around him that care about him. Not quinn.

Ridge: Dad, she’s playing you.

Eric: Leave my wife alone, ridge.

Quinn: I think it’s clear who needs to leave.

Ridge: I’m not going anywhere. You think I’m gonna leave you with him? So you can keep toying with him? No!

Eric: Is that what you think is going on here? That I’m this pitiful man that needs to be protected by you?

Ridge: That’s not what I said.

Eric: That’s what you mean! You think I’m so weak standing here. So decrepit. Do you know how much strength it took for me to ask her to do this? I’m doing the best I can here. I’ve lived in this house a long time. With many other people. But quinn brings to me what I need now. I need her. I need her companionship. And she needs more than that. That she can get with carter.

Ridge: You need to stop this, dad.

Eric: I wish I could. I hope it never happens to you. I hope you never get to the point in your life when you fear… being alone. As much as I fear it now. I hope that never happens to you. Super emma just about sleeps in her cape.

Sheila: The question is will you respond? That’s my boy.

Finn: “Finn, it’s your mother. I just had to tell you I mean you no harm. Seeing you, holding hayes, I had a powerful sensation in my whole body that i need to be with you. I need to know you and my precious grandson. I’m just a mother and a grandmother who wants to be a part of her son and grandson’s lives. Never doubt how much I love you. Mom.”

Hope: Wow.

Finn: Yeah.

Hope: How, um, how do you feel?

Finn: That my priority is with steffy and hayes. It has to be. That’s the way it has to be, because, you know, there’s no room in my life for sheila. Even if she has changed, which I hope she has. There’s just, you know, there’s too much history to overcome.

Hope: Are you trying to convince me, or to convince yourself?

Finn: I mean, I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that I wanted to get to know her. Hear stories. Have an understanding of why she let me go. But I have so much more that I want to ask. This woman’s a part of me. And all I know is the worst part. The crimes. I mean, that can’t be all there is to my mother. I should say my birth mother. Because I have a mother and no matter what sheila is in my life, she is in it or she’s not, she will never replace my mom.

Hope: And yet…

Finn: I want more than this. More than unanswered questions. I want to know sheila. Steffy, she won’t have it. And I get that, I understand that. But the feelings… they’re there.

Hope: It will work out, finn. It will all work out.

Brooke: I’m just glad eric has a neighbour he can lean on.

Katie: Of course. I’ll always be there for him.

Brooke: Good. Because he needs you, katie. He does.

Ridge: What happened to you? What’S… you’ve lost your dignity.

Quinn: How dare you? My husband has more dignity than you ever will.

Eric: Quinn, it’s okay.

Quinn: No, he can’t just stand here and berate you like that.

Ridge: He’s being conned by– I’m not taking anything away, you’re really good at it. But he… he is so concerned with pleasing you, that he doesn’t even see the pain you’re causing him.

Eric: I don’t see the pain? Do you know how much this hurts? This breaks my heart. Look, carter’s a good man.

Ridge: Carter’s not– okay–

Eric: This is my decision!

Ridge: I don’t accept your decision! This is wrong. You know it’s wrong. And you know it’s wrong. But you know what you want, so you’re gonna keep going. You need to leave.

Eric: What, like you left? Like you left and… thorne. And kristen, and felicia, and rick, and bridget. Bridget… they all left, ridge. Brooke left. Donna left. Stephanie’s gone. Heh. Stephanie. I don’t want to be alone in this house. You hear that? Listen. That’s what it’s like to live here. There’s no footsteps. There’s no running up and down the stairs. There’s no laughter. There’s no talk. There’s no hearing me play the piano. And there’s no one to listen when I have something I want to say. When I told quinn to get out, she left and I… I remembered what it’s like to be alone in here. So, I asked her to come back. And she did. We love each other. She fills my heart, she drives away that dreaded emptiness that I felt in my heart, in my home. This is what I want. This is my house. This is my life. I will not be alone.

Brooke: This is unbelievable! The two of you continuing to betray eric!

Quinn: We’re not betraying eric. I’m sorry, didn’t justin tell you?

Ridge: Tell us what? It’s pretty obvious what’s going on here.

Brooke: I would expect this from you, quinn, but you, carter?

Carter: Let’s just hold on. Let’s calm down and actually start listening to each other.

Brooke: Listen to what? More excuses, more lies?

Ridge: Justin caught you, right? Which proves once again that you cannot be trusted ever.

Brooke: I was right.

Quinn: Which is more important to you than the actual truth.

Brooke: Truth? From you?

Carter: Will you accept it coming from me?

Ridge: From you? Yeah, couple of months ago for sure. I trusted you with my life.

Carter: I realize–

Ridge: How do you– how do you that to my dad? How do you do that? The man who opened his heart to you, his business, his family. You just thew it back in his face. Not once, but twice.

Carter: That’s not true.

Brooke: Not true. Justin caught you in bed together! When you promised eric that it was over. He believed you. He took you back, quinn. And then what? You crawl back in bed with carter at your first opportunity, sneaking around?

Quinn: We are not sneaking around!

Carter: Listen to what quinn is trying to tell you.

Brooke: Why should we?

Quinn: So that we can talk about what’s actually going on instead of your wrong assumptions. Carter and I are not sleeping together behind eric’s back. I’m telling you! He knows all about it.

Katie: Okay, I am officially confused. First, what could you possibly have to feel ashamed about? And second, you want to tell me the truth about you, and quinn and carter? Eric, what’s going on? What are you talking about?

Eric: Katie, this is a conversation that we’re gonna have here that is not easy for me. I’m going to ask you to be patient and bear with me, okay?

Katie: Are you okay? Has quinn done something to hurt you again?

Eric: Quinn and i are fine.

Katie: You say that to protect her even when it’s not true. I know how heartbroken you were when you found out about quinn and carter. How betrayed. I mean, honestly, I still don’t understand how you forgave her.

Eric: Well, there’s lot more to the story than you understand. Or that anybody understands.

Katie: I don’t know what you’re trying to say.

Eric: There’s a reason that– that quinn turned to carter. And part of the blame goes to me.

Brooke: You really expect us to believe that eric knows you’re sleeping with carter. Now, I mean, that is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard.

Quinn: It’s the truth.

Ridge: What about you? You’re going along with that lie?

Carter: It’s not a lie.

Ridge: What happened to you? You used to be this great upstanding guy until this one got her hooks in you.

Carter: No one’s got their hooks in me, ridge, quinn is telling you the truth. Eric knows about everything.

Ridge: No one’s buying it.

Quinn: Enough! Okay, enough. I hate that’ve brought us to this point. This, this actually feels like the real betrayal of eric, but I don’t– I don’t have any other choice! No, no, no. The truth is eric wants me to be with carter. Want your clothes to smell freshly washed

Katie: Eric, you cannot blame yourself for quinn’s affair with carter. I mean, it’s not like you gave her a permission slip. She made a conscious choice to sleep with another man. That is her fault and her fault alone.

Eric: Katie, she felt neglected.

Katie: Oh, is she a child? Because we all feel neglected sometimes. That gives her no excuse to break the heart of the person who loves her most.

Eric: There were extenuating circumstances. There was… there was a distance between us.

Katie: Clearly something is going on. I wish you would tell me what it is.

Eric: I was not able to be the husband that she wanted or the… husband that she deserved.

Katie: What are you talking about? You are everything that she could possibly want! You are loving, you are forgiving. How could she be anything but fulfilled?

Eric: Katie, I wasn’t able to…I– I wasn’t able…

Katie: To what?

Eric: I wasn’t able to perform… in the bedroom. I have erectile dysfunction. I was seriously hoping I would never have to say that again. But I was in denial about it at first and I made excuses for not touching her, and I– I pushed her away… at first. And now– she knows now.

Katie: I’m so sorry you’re having to deal with this.

Eric: Yeah.

Katie: It must be very difficult for you and for quinn, but it’s no excuse for having an affair with carter, it’s just not.

Eric: No, it’s not. Not the first time.

Katie: The first time? Eric, are you telling me that it’s– that it’s happening again? Are you serious? I mean, I can’t believe this. You tell quinn about what you’re going through and her response is to jump into bed with carter? What kind of woman does that?

Eric: It’s okay, katie.

Katie: No, it’s not okay. How could it be okay?

Eric: Look, just because my sex life is over, doesn’t mean that hers has to be.

Katie: Are you saying that you condoned the affair?

Eric: More than that, katie. It was my idea.

Ridge: Now I get it. My dad wants you to be with carter. What kinda twisted wishful thinking is that?

Brooke: It’s crazy! No man wants his wife to be with somebody else.

Ridge: Let me ask you something. You don’t feel ashamed about any of this? After what he’s done? He’s trusted you, he’s shielded you, protected you?

Brooke: He loved you.

Ridge: And this is how you repay him?

Quinn: You don’t know what you’re talking about, either one of you.

Carter: There’s a whole backstory to this.

Ridge: There’s a backstory? I didn’t know there was a backstory. Let’s hear that.

Brooke: Ooh, this gotta be good.

[ Quinn sighs ]

Quinn: Eric and i were having… difficulties in our marriage.

Ridge: That’s the backstory? It’s a marriage, it’s what happens–

Brooke: I thought it was just– I thought it was just residual disappointment from the whole shauna thing and it would just– it would blow over, but it didn’t go away. And I–I couldn’T. I couldn’t understand why my husband… wouldn’t be my husband anymore.

Brooke: What are you even talking about quinn?

Quinn: Eric… can’t make love to me.

Brooke: That doesn’t really surprise me, given the terrible way you treat him.

Quinn: No, brooke! Physically. Eric has erectile dysfunction.

Brooke: What kind of game are you playing, quinn?

Quinn: It’s true. I wish it wasn’T.

Ridge: He would’ve told me.

Brooke: No, he wouldn’t, ’cause he’s sensitive about it. Ridge, god, wouldn’t you be?

Ridge: You knew about this?

Carter: Eventually.

Ridge: Oh, okay. Well, then it must be true, right?

Carter: It’s true.

Brooke: Okay. So, instead of having some compassion for your husband, being there as a supportive wife, you turned to your lover!

Quinn: I was there for my husband. I stood by his side. I told him that he was everything I wanted, he was everything I needed, and that we would get through this together. But eric wouldn’t accept that.

[ Scoffs ] I didn’t turn to carter. Eric set us up.

Ridge: Well, that’s– that’s crazy talk, even coming from you.

Quinn: Yeah, I know. I know. But it’s the truth. Eric insisted I be with carter. I’m a ganiac, ganiac, check my drawers

Katie: I couldn’t have heard you right.

Eric: Quinn has my blessing to sleep with carter. In fact, katie, I encouraged it.

Katie: Eric!

Eric: Look, this isn’t something that I ever would’ve imagined… wanting a wife of mine to do. Not at all. Quinn has needs that I can’t fulfill, and carter can. Her sex life doesn’t have to be over just because mine is.

Katie: I wish I knew what to say.

Eric: Katie, they were both reluctant at first, they were.

Katie: Oh, wow, this… this makes a lot of sense, everything you’ve been saying and– and the fact that you’re here alone so often because quinn was with carter?

Eric: I don’t want any outrage or you being incensed about this, to be expressed towards me or anybody else. I certainly don’t want you to be angry with quinn

Katie: I won’T. I won’T. I would never, okay? But eric. My heart is broken for you. This isn’t love. Giving your wife to another man. And carter, my god, what is he thinking?

Eric: Don’t blame him. Carter has feelings for quinn, and I… I took advantage of that. I… I manipulated this whole thing.

Katie: You may say that this is what you want, but I know you. Having your wife in some other man’s bed has got to be so devastating.

Eric: All right. This was hard, katie. Thanks for listening to me, okay? And… I’m gonna–

Katie: Okay.

Eric: I’m gonna go upstairs, please. Don’t be offended.

Katie: No, of course I’m not. Of course I’m not. Thank you for trusting me.

[ Eric sighs ]

Ridge: I’m loving this. Keep going, what’s your endgame? Carter: She’s telling the truth.

Quinn: Come on, you know your father. You know how selfless he is. He didn’t want the passionate side of my life to die. So this thing– this thing with me and carter, it was his conception. Eric didn’t just recommend it, he didn’t just think about it, he pushed for it!

Ridge: I don’t believe you.

Brooke: You are making up this ridiculous story because you don’t want ridge and me to go to eric and confront him about this very personal issue, because you want to continue your tawdry little affair!

Quinn: You have just never been able to accept how deeply eric loves me.

Ridge: So what? This has nothing to do with that. He would never agree to this.

Carter: It was his idea.

Brooke: Stop. Quinn will do or say anything to protect herself. You don’t have to go along with her lies.

Carter: I’m not, brooke. No one’s lying here.

Quinn: You know, how stupid would that be if I was? All you would have to do is go to eric and ask him yourself. But that’s the problem here. See? Because eric didn’t want anyone to know. He wanted us to keep this a secret. But you two? I had no other choice. I had no other choice to get you to be able to understand what’s going on here, and you’re the reason why we betrayed eric. Brooke: Oh, god! For god’s sake, stop lying! This is ridiculous. Eric would not do that. Eric would never do something so twisted and so sick! Sitting at home all alone while he knows that you are off sleeping with your lover. That is ridiculous, quinn! That is wrong on every single level.

Quinn: I’m out of here.

Brooke: I can’t even believe you’d say that. What is–

Ridge: No, no, no. Let her go. Let her go. Let’s create your trademark style at macy’s vip sale

[ Door opening ]

[ Brooke sighing ]

Katie: Whoa.

Brooke: The nerve of that woman.

Katie: Who?

Brooke: Quinn. Who else? The things that she does and expects to get away with. I feel bad for eric, I really do.

Katie: You won’t get any argument from me.

Brooke: Ridge and i just uncovered something. And it’s going to hurt eric. Now, I know you’ve been there for him. I’m just giving you fair warning, because I think he’s really gonna need your support after this.

Katie: Okay.

Brooke: You know how we’ve had justin keep an eye on quinn?

Katie: Yeah, ridge told me.

Brooke: Well, he followed quinn. To carter’S. And they picked up right where they left off. She betrayed eric all over again. And if that’s not bad enough, her sleeping with carter, she actually looked us in the eye and said that it was eric’s idea. That he condoned it. That he manipulated quinn and carter to be together. Why are you so calm? I thought you’d be upset like I am?

Katie: Because unfortunately, for the first time in her life, I think quinn is actually telling the truth.

Brooke: What?

Katie: She’s not lying. She’s telling the truth about all of it.

[ Door opening ]

Eric: Quinn? I’m surprised you’re home so soon. I thought you’d– I thought you’d still be with carter.

Quinn: I–I was, I was, but something happened that you need to know about right away.

Eric: Sounds pretty ominous. What is it?

Quinn: It’s as bad as it gets.

Eric: What is it?

Quinn: First, I want to say I’m sorry. I’m sorry, because I know how upsetting this is going to be to you.

Eric: You tell me what this is.

Quinn: Ridge made some sort of a deal with justin.

Eric: Spencer’s lawyer?

Quinn: Yes! Yes, ridge sicced justin on me. He followed me to carter’s loft and– and he found us together.

Eric: What? What?

Quinn: No, no, it gets even worse. We sat there with– with justin. We were begging him not to say a word. We– we actually even thought we got through to him, but clearly we didn’T. He must’ve run straight to ridge and told him everything, because who shows up next but ridge and brooke, in their moral indignation.

Eric: Oh, god.

Quinn: They– they confronted us, eric, I am so sorry. We had no other choice but to tell them everything, why carter and I were together again, and– and I’m so sorry, because I know how much you wanted to keep this private. I do, but you know ridge and brooke when it comes to me.

Ridge: Hey, guys. Now, whatever she’s telling you, don’t believe her. I have a feeling she’s trying to lie her way out of a pretty big hole right now. But I know the truth. And I’m sorry she’s cheating on you again with carter.

Eric: Ridge, listen to me, listen–

Ridge: No, no, no, you listen to me. Enough with this. Please, you gotta toss her out. Look, she’s been bad, she’s always been a liar. But now, this is pathetic. She said it was you, you sent her to carter, that you sanctioned the whole thing. Dad, look at her. This is the best she’s ever gonna be. She’s only gonna get worse. And I can’t sit back and watch her betray you over and over again.

Eric: It’s not a betrayal, ridge. She’s not lying to you, she’s telling you the truth. I told her to be with carter.

[ Upbeat music ]

Carter: I should’ve stopped justin.

Quinn: Why couldn’t ridge just leave it alone? Sending justin after me. I mean, how did he even get in here!

Carter: If we didn’t convince justin to keep quiet, this is going to be a disaster.

Quinn: Carter, we told him everything.

Carter: Right now, he could be sharing all of that with ridge.

Ridge: How much do you know about eric’s marriage?

Justin: How much do I know?

Ridge: Quinn betrayed him and I’m not gonna let that happen again.

Justin: I get that, but when you ask him, like what does he say?

Ridge: He says nothing! That’s why I asked you to follow quinn. So, where did she go?

Justin: You’re not gonna like iT.

Ridge: Justin! I don’t like any of this. I don’t like what it’s doingto my father. I want this woman out of his life, but I can’t do that unless I have some proof. So, what do we have? Is she betraying my father or no?

Katie: You don’t have to treat me like a guest. We’ve known each other too long for that.

Eric: I actually enjoy playing host. Especially to you.

Katie: Well, thank you for the invite.

Eric: You’re good company, katie.

Katie: Well, you’re not so bad yourself. I’m just sorry that you feel like you need company.

Eric: Katie, we agreed.

Katie: I know, I know. No talk of quinn.

Eric: Yeah, or our relationships.

Katie: No. No relationship, marriage talk at all.

Eric: Thank you very much.

[ Laughing ] Except I’m wildly curious about yours. How’s everything with you and bill?

Katie: You wanna know about my relationship with bill?

Eric: You’ve been very worried about me being alone, here. But I’ve been surprised to know that you’re alone next door.

Katie: Yeah, yeah. Will is at boarding school, and I just… it devastates me. Like I miss him so much. Like I can’t even talk about it or I’ll start crying, but, you know, he wanted to go so badly and it’s such a good school, and it just… it floors me how independent he is sometimes. It’s been rough having bill in jail. It was just… it was really, really hard.

Eric: It’s been hard for everybody in this family. You’re right.

Katie: Bill was just so reckless. And I tried to shield will, but, you know, it’s just a lot for a kid his age.

Eric: It’s a lot for you too. You were considering reconciling with bill before all this happened, right?

Katie: Yeah, we were.

Eric: So, you still see a future with him?

Quinn: How did this get all so out of hand? Justin could be telling ridge everything right now about our arrangement. About eric’s ed!

Carter: What was ridge even thinking? Hiring bill spencer’s henchman to spy on us.

Quinn: Not on us, on me! Me. Quinn, the wrecking ball.

Carter: Stop.

Quinn: No! No, eric could’ve been done with me. He didn’t have to let me back into his life. He didn’t have to give us permission to be together so I wouldn’t have to give up that intimate part of my life.

Carter: And we made justin understand that.

Quinn: Did we? There’s no telling what he might do.

Ridge: Justin, we had a deal.

Justin: I did what you told me to do.

Ridge: You’re not doing it now. I’m asking you a question, answer me. What is going on? What is quinn doing? Is she abusing my father or not?

Brooke: What’s going on?

Ridge: That’s what I’m trying to find out.

Brooke: Did you uncover something about quinn?

Brooke: Justin, we know the kind of person she is, so anything you tell us, it’s not gonna surprise us.

Quinn: If this gets out can you imagine what this is gonna do to eric? Please, that’s why you can’t say anything. That’s why you have to keep this secret to yourself.

Brooke: If you found out something about quinn, you need to tell us.

Brushing only reaches

25% of your mouth.

Katie: Sometimes I feel like I’m caught in this endless loop.

Eric: Because you feel like bill keeps pulling you back in?

Katie: Or maybe I’m just too stubborn to let go. I’ve told myself that… I keep holding on because of will. You know, I wanna give him the family that he deserves. The family that I promised him. But I think a lot of it’s about me. I just… I remember, I remember who we were when we first met. And what we used to mean to each other before brooke, before all those insecurities and doubts crept in.

Eric: Well, you shouldn’t feel insecure about yourself. You know, you’re an incredible woman. You really are.

Katie: Thank you, that’s lovely to hear from you. And I’m not fishing. I’m really not.

[ Laughing ] Because the truth is, I will never really be able to forget that the man I gave my heart to gave his heart to someone else. And… I’ve heard him say that brooke is the love of his life.

Eric: I’ve heard him say similar things about you.

Katie: Yeah, I have to. And I believed him. I believe it when he says them. I do. But, I just always have to wonder if he had the choice, would he choose me? And I hate that question. I hate that that question even enters into my mind when I’m with him. Because it’s something that I have tried to fight through. And I’ve have to work on, and honestly, the real question that I should be asking myself is… don’t I deserve to be the love of someone’s life? Don’t I deserve to be loved like that? I don’t want to be the runner up.

Eric: You don’t have to be katie, you never should have to be. Bill should absolutely give you the respect and the acceptance that you deserve.

Katie: He says I make him a better man.

Eric: Katie, he adores his children and his grandchildren.

Katie: He does, but bill, there’s never any moderation. It is always the extreme. Even how he protects his family. And he says that he does everything for his boys, and for his family, and everything he does is for them, but you know what? It’s not. It’s for himself. He feels like the only way to show strength, is to be unflinching. Never show any weakness. And I just don’t buy that. I don’T. I feel strongest when I’m surrounded by people I love, and who care for me. And who I can trust enough to show my weaknesses to. Because I know that they’ll be there for me, and they’ll sit next to me, and they’ll hold my hand. I mean, like my sisters, and like you. Gosh, no matter how much I try to explain that to him, he just–he doesn’t get it.

Eric: So, you don’t feel that he’s ever been listening. You don’t feel you’ve ever been heard by bill?

Katie: I think bill hears what he wants to hear. And sometimes I don’t think we speak the same language.

Eric: I’ve had the same trouble in my marriage too.

Katie: But unlike bill, there’s nothing you wouldn’t do for your wife.

Quinn: We were gonna stop, carter.

Carter: We did stop.

Quinn: But eric pushed us back together.

Carter: He encouraged it.

Quinn: Ridge is never gonna see it that way. He’s never gonna understand why eric did what he did. He’s never gonna see eric’s unconditional love and faith in our marriage.

Carter: Coming from justin, you saw the way he reacted.

Quinn: He could twist this a million different ways.

Carter: And none of them good.

Justin: You wanted to know if quinn was playing games. Doing things that eric didn’t know about.

Ridge: Tell me where she’s running off to.

Brooke: And why eric’s spending so much time alone.

Ridge: Where’d she go?

Justin: She left the office, she drove to the beach. The way she was acting, I thought you had it all wrong. She wasn’t being evasive. She parked out front. Hell, when she went inside, they didn’t even shut the shades.

Brooke: They? You mean she was with somebody?

Justin: It wasn’t just anyone. I caught them together. She went to carter’s place. Lactaid is 100% real milk, just without the lactose.

Eric: Katie, I want you to be able to tell me anything you need to tell me about you and bill. I want to be there for you the same way you’ve been there for me.

Katie: I’m conflicted.

Eric: I see that.

Katie: He loves our son and will adores him. Looks up to him. Honestly, he’s not the kind of man that I thought that I would end up with at all. I mean, that’s part of the attraction is the fact that he is so volatile and dangerous. And that can be exciting and romantic. But it can also be terrifying and I thought that if I loved him enough, then I could smooth out the rough edges.

Eric: Yeah.

Katie: But at the end of the day, bill is who he is. And he likes who he is. He likes sitting behind the desk and intimidating everyone and barking out orders. And he can be passionate but he can also be vengeful. For a while I thought I could change him. It’s silly of me, maybe I don’t even have that right. Because I don’t think that people really change for other people. I think that you have to change for yourself. And I don’t think that bill wants to change and I don’t think he would change for me.

Eric: Well, then he’s a damn fool. A man of substance will do anything he can to give the woman he loves what she needs. And the life she needs, no matter how much it costs him. I don’t think bill is willing to do that for you. And if he’s not, then– look, he’s not giving you any of the respect and the acceptance that you deserve. He’s not.

Katie: He does love me. I know he does.

Eric: Enough to give you the life that you deserve?

Katie: Is being alone better?

[ Sighing ]

Eric: Well, you mustn’t reconcile with bill just because you don’t want to be alone.

Katie: Isn’t that what you’re doing with quinn? I mean, I’m sorry. I know, we’re not allowed to talk about your marriage, or quinn. But–I feel the same way about her that you feel about bill. I don’t trust her, I don’t feel like she treats you the way that you deserve to be treated. I mean, here you are, this beautiful, beautiful human being, just standing in front of her, wanting to love her. And, where is she?

Quinn: I should go home. Or I should call eric. I need to warn him that justin could blow all of this up.

Ridge: You sure? You saw quinn at carter’s place?

Brooke: You actually saw them together?

Ridge: What happened?

Justin: They were in the bedroom.

Brooke: I knew it! I knew quinn couldn’t be faithful to eric.

Ridge: What happened?

Justin: Well, I followed her to carter’s place. She pulled up, walked in, and I made my way up to carter’s bedroom window. And they were all over each other.

Brooke: Ugh! He never should’ve taken her back.

Ridge: And either way you confronted them?

Justin: Yeah, I mean, I thought interrupting them was what you wanted before–

Ridge: What I want is that woman out of his life today.

Brooke: Once eric finds out what she’s up to, she will be.

Ridge: How does carter do that? Why? He’s gonna throw away his family? His career? All for quinn?

Justin: They begged me not to tell you what I saw.

Brooke: We told eric to cut her loose. But he wanted to give her one more chance. And now what? She’s back in carter’s bed?

Ridge: This doesn’t make sense to me.

Ridge: That’s not the carter I know. He made a mistake. But he wouldn’t do it again. There’s no way.

Justin: They said it wasn’t cheating. That it was okay.

Brooke: What? No, of course it was cheating. Quinn is married.

Justin: Well, no. They said it wasn’t like that. They could explain.

Ridge: Explain? They can explain it to me.

Justin: Whoa, hold on, ridge. I haven’t told you everything.

Ridge: Let ’em tell it to me.

Brooke: I’m coming with you.

Ridge: You did a good job today. You did a good job for this family. Come on. I’ve been telling everyone…

Katie: Eric, I am your friend. Please tell me what’s going on with you.

Eric: Look, katie, I appreciate how… how open and honest you’ve been with me.

Katie: It’s because we trust each other. We’ve always trusted each other. I’m just trying to understand. Quinn has this beautiful, loving, charming husband. How could she not be satisfied?

Eric: She is. She is satisfied more than ever.

Katie: Well, then where is she? Why don’t you want to tell me?

Eric: I do, katie. I do. But I… I’ve done something, katie. Uh, I’ve done something that I don’t think anyone’s really gonna understand. Most especially you, I think.

Katie: I would never judge you, never.

Eric: I know. But if you… if you do, I’ll understand. When quinn and I got back together, I wanted it to be everything it had been before. But it couldn’t be. I couldn’t, uh… it wasn’t the same. It couldn’t be and so I made a choice, I made a decision, and um… I want to tell you the truth. I want to tell you the truth about quinn and me. And carter.

Quinn: I don’t want eric to be blindsided by this.

Carter: We would’ve known by now if justin told ridge.

Quinn: Or ridge could be grilling eric right now as we speak.

Carter: And that’s why eric didn’t want anyone to know. One person finds out, and the entire family’s questioning his judgment.

Quinn: Or they could be questioning ours. I mean, aren’t you?

Carter: We haven’t done anything wrong.

Quinn: Yeah, I know. I was telling myself that too, and then justin walked in on us and I’m still trying to convince myself of it.

Carter: ‘Cause you saw his reaction?

Quinn: Look what this is gonna do to eric when his secret gets out. I mean, this is going to hurt him and I don’t want that to happen, he’s my husband!

Carter: You love him.

Quinn: Of course, I love him. And I love you!

Carter: I love you too. Enough to accept another man’s ridiculous terms to be with you, quinn. But I love you way too much to put you in a situation you might regret.

[ Knocking ]

Ridge: Carter, quinn, open up. We know you’re in there.

[ Knocking ]

Brooke: How dare you?

Ridge: Again?

Quinn: We don’t expect you to understand.

Brooke: You took eric’s forgiveness and you threw it right back in his face. How dare you betray him again?

Quinn: We’re not betraying him!

Ridge: How do you have the audacity to say that?

Carter: Because it’s true.

Ridge: Huh? What? So, you’re not sleeping together?

Quinn: Not behind eric’s back. We’re not lying to him. Eric knows, ridge. He knows.

[ Upbeat music ]

Katie: Have you heard anything from justin since you texted him last?

Ridge: Nothing yet.

Katie: What do you think that means?

Ridge: I don’t know what it means. He followed quinn when she left and hopefully he’ll find out something.

Katie: Eric said that quinn was gonna be out this evening.

Ridge: That’s par for the course, isn’t it?

Katie: Where do you think she is? What do you think she’s doing?

Ridge: Who’s she doing it with? I have my suspicions, but I hope I’m wrong. For dad’s sake.

Quinn: Please, justin. You have to listen to us.

Carter: If you say a word about this to anyone–

Justin: See, that’s exactly it. I’m still not sure what this whole thing really is. You expect me to believe that a husband is allowing his wife to sleep with another man? As a matter of fact, encouraging it. Look, I’m no prude, but–

Carter: I realize it’s not something you hear about every day–

Quinn: Okay, we’re not running around behind anybody’s back. We’re not having an elicit affair. This was my husband’s idea.

Steffy: You’re not going anywhere near hayes.

Sheila: I just want a moment with him. With my grandson.

Steffy: If you take one more step to the nursery–

Sheila: Are you threatening me now?

Steffy: I’m protecting my son.

Sheila: You don’t need to protect him from me. I love him.

Steffy: You don’t know what that word means. Now get out.

Sheila: Not until I hold my grandson.

Steffy: You’re never gonna hold him again. Not today, not tomorrow, not ever.

Sheila: Well, we’ll see about that, then, won’t we?

Steffy: You take one more step and I swear to god, sheila, you’re gonna be sorry.

Paris: Hey, hey.

Zende: There she is.

Paris: You’ve been looking for me?

Zende: So I can do this.

Paris: Oh. Glad I stopped by.

Zende: I’m glad you did, too. My day is not complete without one of your smiles. So, how’s everything?

Paris: Well, work is good. But you already knew that.

Zende: No, I guess I’m asking more about life at the beach.

Paris: What do you want to know?

Zende: Well, I know you’re grateful to finn and steffy for giving you a place to crash, but how long are you planning on hanging out there?

Paris: Oh, you think I’m overstaying my welcome?

Zende: No, I just meant that I thought, you know, you might like your own spot at some time, or…

Paris: Yeah, I know what you meant, but you’re right. All good things do have to come to an end. And this one does. And it has.

[ Sighing ]

Sheila: Okay, can we just not do this?

Steffy: Then go.

Sheila: I just… I just want to spend a moment with hayes. You can be with me the whole time.

Steffy: No! No.

Sheila: Oh, come on, steffy. How can you continue to deny a grandmother the opportunity to see her grandson.

Steffy: You’re never gonna be hayes’ grandmother. He’s never gonna know you exist.

Sheila: You don’t mean that. You can’t be that vindictive.

Steffy: Calling what you want, I’m doing what’s best for my son.

Sheila: You’re denying him family.

Steffy: He has family! He has finn, he has me, he has kelly. He doesn’t need you. You are not family! Now, for the last time, get out! Before I throw you out.

Finn: Steffy, what’s going– sheila.

Katie: Maybe you should text justin again. Maybe he didn’t get the first one.

Ridge: Maybe I got the wrong man on the job. He better not let me down.

Eric: Who better not let you down? What are you talking about?

Ridge: Nothing.

Eric: How can it be nothing when the two of you are so intense? What is it?

Justin: You’re telling me that eric’s really cool with this, the two of you?

Quinn: Look, we realize it’s shocking.

Carter: It’s hard to believe, justin, eric’s coming from a place of love.

Quinn: Right, I love eric. Eric loves me, he just can’t express that love physically like he used to.

Justin: Just, tag, you’re it. Just like that, huh?

Carter: Why am I even explaining myself to this– imagine our reaction when eric proposed it. He wants quinn to be fulfilled in every aspect of their marriage, so he found a way to make it work for himself, for quinn, and I have to respect that.

Justin: Of course you do! You’re the lucky recipient.

Quinn: Okay, look–

Justin: Get out!

Quinn: I realize how this looks to you, to anyone if this information got out, but this is my marriage. This is eric’s marriage. I’m asking you to respect the privacy between a husband and wife and their personal relationship. I’m not asking you to agree with it, or condone it. But nobody is getting hurt here, so please just forget what you saw. Forget that you know anything about this.

[ Scoffing ] – Bedtime!! – Bedtime.

Zende: No problem, I’ll get right on that.

Paris: You’re busy. I should go.

Zende: No, no, no. Not so fast. You still have to fill in some blanks. So, you are ditching your cozy digs in malibu, for where? Have you found a new place, yet?

Paris: I’m closing in on one.

Zende: Look, don’t get me wrong, it’s not like I’m against you moving out of steffy and finn’s, but why now?

Paris: It was just time. I need to move on.

Zende: Okay. Well, I’m all for it. Means you and I get to have a little bit more alone time.

Paris: I would like that too.

Zende: Oh yeah?

Finn: What are you doing here?

Steffy: She got past the guard and bolted in here the moment you went surfing.

Finn: Why? Why would you do that when you know how steffy feels?

Sheila: All too clear, yes. But how do you feel, sweetheart? How do you feel about me? Your mother?

Steffy: Oh, for…

Ridge: I sent someone to do a job and now I’m wondering if maybe it was the wrong person, but it’s my problem, I’ll deal with it.

Eric: Am I getting the whole story here?

Ridge: Are we getting the whole story? You and quinn? I mean, what?

Eric: Oh, I wondered how long it would be for me to come in here before you asked me about my marriage.

Ridge: Dad, look–

Eric: You look, ridge. Both of you. Quinn and i are fine. My marriage is fine.

Ridge: Okay, how are you fine? You’re home alone and she goes out and does whatever she wants? What is that?

Eric: We have an arrangement, ridge.

Ridge: Okay, there’s that word again. Arrangement. What is it? What is your arrangement? What’s going on with you and quinn?

Justin: So, you want me to forget what I saw? Just kinda like unsee it, right? Pretend that you and carter, with eric’s permission, right? Pretend like this didn’t happen. Is that what you want me to do?

Quinn: Yes.

Justin: Oh, come on.

Quinn: Come on! For eric’s sake. Do you know how many doctors and therapists he’s been going to to try and fix his situation, and nothing has worked? And no matter how many times I’ve told him, that he is enough for me, that our love is enough for me, he’S… he’s determined. He thinks that this is the answer to a very delicate and sensitive situation. And even though, at first, I refused–

Carter: So did I.

Quinn: Ultimately, he convinced us. And this is just… it’s uncharted territory for all three of us.

Carter: Justin, if this were to get out–

Justin: What?

Carter: I’mma slow this down for you, eric made a decision to put his wife’s needs before his own. Okay?

Quinn: If this gets out, can you imagine what this is going to do to eric? Please, that’s why you can’t say anything. That’s why you have to keep this secret to yourself. Read my eyes.

Zende: You know I support you at anything you do, right? That’s the kind of relationship we have. Mutual support and admiration.

Paris: Oh, so that kiss just now is you showing me how much you admire me.

Zende: I do, a lot. You’re so positive, accomplished. You’re also smoking hot. Ouf!

Paris: I am so appreciative of you too, you’re kind, and you’re caring, and you’re so understanding.

Finn: You’re doing it again.

Sheila: What?

Finn: You’re putting me in the middle between you and my wife.

Sheila: Finn, I just want to know how you feel about me.

Finn: You already know how I feel. And why I can’t have anything to do with you. Look, I don’t want to hurt you, but your history with steffy and her–

Sheila: Please don’T.

Finn: Her family–

Sheila: Just don’T. Please don’T. Don’t do this. You and my grandson mean everything to me. I already lost you once for years, and years, and now we’re in a position to make up for lost time. Don’t turn your back on that. Please don’t turn your back on me. Your mother.

Ridge: I don’t want to upset you, I just, I’m trying to understand. Quinn betrayed you with another man. You were set to divorce her, and then out of nowhere, you change your mind. I’m trying to figure out why, because you don’t talk to me, you don’t talk to your family. No one you love. You don’t talk to anybody.

Katie: We’re just, we’re worried about you, eric. I mean, we want you to be happy, and you don’t seem happy. You just reconciled with your wife, a woman you supposedly love.

Ridge: But you’re leading separate lives. It seems that way to us. Do you know what she’s doing? Where she is? Where she’s going? Do you know any of that stuff?

Eric: Yes, I do. I know exactly what she’s doing. And I know where she is. I want you to drop this. I mean it, ridge. Drop it now.

Quinn: Look, I realize, I am not your favorite person. Bill has made sure of that over the years. But, I’m not asking you to keep quiet for me. I’m asking you to do this for eric.

Carter: If it were to become public knowledge, justin, people would never understand.

Quinn: Can you imagine if his family found out? I mean, eric having to tell them this. It would be humiliating to him. Please, don’t do that to eric. He’s dealing with enough. He shouldn’t have to go through any more. Please, justin. Just keep this to yourself. Please don’t tell ridge.

Bogeys on your

six, limu.

Ridge: Dad, come on. No one’s attacking you.

Eric: Ridge, stop this. Will you, please? I don’t want to hear another word about my marriage or about quinn. From either one of you, katie.

Katie: Eric, I’m sorry. You’re right. You have every right to your privacy.

Eric: Thank you.

Katie: Of course, that doesn’t mean that your friends and your family can’t be concerned– but, okay. Fine. No more. I’ll shut up. Can I still come over later?

Eric: Yes, that’ll be fine, as long as we don’t say anything about quinn. Or him.

Katie: Deal.

[ Phone beeping ]

Eric: Yeah? Yeah, she’s here. I’ll tell her. The new interns are gathered in the conference room downstairs.

Katie: Oh, okay. I just have to grab a few things from my office.

Eric: Good, I’ll come with. I want to see them as well.

Katie: Okay.

Quinn: What do you think justin will do?

Carter: Let’s just hope and pray we got through to him.

[ Sighing ]

[ Door opening ]

Ridge: Hey, it’s about time. Did you get my text?

Justin: Yes.

Ridge: Never mind. Did you follow quinn?

Justin: Yes.

Ridge: Okay. What did she do? Where did she go? Was she alone?

Quinn: I’m not asking you to keep quiet for me. I’m asking you to do this for eric. Just keep this to yourself. Please don’t tell ridge.

Ridge: Justin! Is she being unfaithful to my father?

Sheila: I know that I have begged and pleaded and I will do it again and again and again if that’s what it takes to have a place in yours and hayes’ lives. I gave you away once. And it was the hardest thing I ever had to do. I was… I was so different back then. I’m a different person now, I am not the monster that she says I am. Just let me show you, please. Just give me that chance. Please, finn. Is that really too much to ask for? The opportunity to have a meaningful relationship with my son? One that we’ve both missed out on for far too long.

Finn: I wanna believe everything you say is true. And I really, really hope it is. But it doesn’t change the fact that I stand with my wifE. I’m sorry. Sheila, you gotta go.

Sheila: No, no. Don’t, don’t, don’t do this. Don’t let steffy come between us. Don’t–

Finn: I’ll see you to the door.

[ Sighing ] Goodbye.

[ Door closing ] It’s okay. I’m sorry.

Quinn: Justin?

Carter: What the hell, man? How’d you get in here?!

Justin: Oh, that’s what you’re worried about?

Quinn: No, I’m worried about what you’re doing here!

Justin: I know exactly what this is. Just save it, the both of you. You’re caught.

Ridge: Quinn is up to something.

Katie: Well, when is she not?

Ridge: I know. But this is different. I don’t know what it is, but I just… getting a bad feeling.

Katie: Well, what do you think she’s up to?

Ridge: No good. What that means, I don’t know. But um… we’ll find out. We’ll find out what she’s doing.

Steffy: I said get out!

Sheila: Steffy, please, just give me a chance.

Steffy: Get out! You are not supposed to be here.

Sheila: I just want to see my grandson and my son.

Steffy: You are never gonna see them. Never! Now, walk out the door right now! I said, get out!

Steffy: How– how did you get past my guard at the gate?

Sheila: I’m a mother that loves my grandson and my son. There’s nothing that’s gonna keep me away from them.

Steffy: You’re never going to see them again.

Sheila: Why are you so angry, steffy?

Steffy: Oh my god, oh my god. Don’t try to play me. I know what you’re doing. Finn told you to stay away and yet… yet here you are. You snuck onto my property? If finn knew you were doing this, he’d be so disappointed in you.

Sheila: Yeah, well, I know he’s not far because I– I saw him go down to the beach.

Steffy: Okay, it’s time for you to go. I mean it, sheila. You got five seconds.

Sheila: One thousand one… one thousand two… one thousand three… or what?

Katie: Do you really have someone keeping an eye on quinn?

Ridge: Ah, this is weird. I’m just getting strange vibes from her, so, yeah. I’m having someone follow her.

Katie: So, like, a private investigator?

Ridge: No, nothing like that. It’s uh… someone I know, someone who’s been scratching the underbelly of society for a long time.

Katie: Oh. Sounds like this person is used to working with a lot of low-lifes. So, where’d you find him?

Ridge: Spencer publications. Former employee.

Katie: Justin?

Justin: Ah! Nice place you got here. See you’re still hooking up with the boss’s wife? Even after eric allowed you to remain coo. You swore it was over; this is the thanks he gets?

Carter: Why are you here?

Justin: Huh. All alone in your apartment, hands all over each other, half-naked.

[ Laughing ] I know what I walked in on, quinn. Soon everyone else will, too. I thought I was getting my floors clean.

Steffy: You’re not welcome here, sheila. You never will be.

Sheila: I know that you were– were taken off guard, me just showing up. I probably should’ve reached out to you before coming here.

Steffy: That wouldn’t have made a difference. My feelings about you are never gonna change. Finn knows that. He doesn’t want you in his life. And the sooner you realize that, the better. Stop coming by here expecting to see people who don’t want to see you.

Sheila: People? Finn isn’t just anyone, he’s my son.

Steffy: And he told you to stay away, and you didn’t respect his wishes.

Sheila: Well, no, I did. I stayed away. I haven’t contacted him since the hospital.

Steffy: Do you want a medal for that?

Sheila: I’ve given him space, steffy.

Steffy: Yeah, like for a minute. Until you snuck back into my house!

Sheila: I could’ve rang the bell, but– look. I came to see you, woman to woman, mother to mother.

[ Stammering ] Since I’m here, I was hoping maybe I could… I could see hayes? Just for a little bit? Spend some time with my boys?

Katie: So, you hired justin barber?

Ridge: No, that’s not what I said. I didn’t hire him. He owed me a favor. And why not him? He’s a great lawyer.

Katie: Okay, sure. No one’s arguing that, but you’re not exactly using him for his legal prowess.

Ridge: I’m using him for research. What’s the difference?

Katie: “Research” into how quinn is spending her spare time?

Ridge: Research into finding out why she’s not at home at night anymore. Seems weird to me, so I’m trying to find out what that is.

Katie: Well, we all have our secrets. Quinn probably takes that to a whole other level.

Ridge: Yeah. My dad has no secrets. Open book. He always told us exactly what was going on. Not now. Doesn’t talk to anybody.

Katie: He’s definitely keeping us guessing, isn’t he?

Ridge: I don’t even care about that. I just don’t want his heart broken again.

Katie: Which is where justin comes in?

Ridge: Which is where justin comes in. Worth a shot.

Katie: You know, you two make an unlikely duo. Didn’t he throw you out of a helicopter one time?

[ Ridge sighing ]

Ridge: That was bill’s idea. But if justin’s capable of doing that, then…

Katie: Then I guess he’s pretty much up for anything, huh?

Ridge: Yeah. But if I want to find out what somebody else is doing, if I want to find out what quinn is doing… justin’s the man for the job.

Carter: Why are you really here, man? Breaking into my place, chastising us? This is none of your business.

Justin: The person that I’m working for made it my business.

Quinn: Person that you’re working for– who? Bill? Bill put you up to this?

Justin: No. No, no, no. Bill and I aren’t speaking anymore. We had a falling out. I’m working for someone else. Someone that will be very interested in the two of you and your cheap, ongoing affair.

Carter: Okay, this is– this no one’s concern.

Justin: Hah. Obviously, it is.

Quinn: You have no idea what you walked in on. So, just– just tell us who it is. I know it’s not eric.

Justin: For the record, you two aren’t really good at this. Not even being discreet!

Quinn: Uh–!

Justin: Shameless. Not even bothered by the thought of hurting eric.

Carter: Just tell us who sent you.

[ Justin laughing ]

Justin: I’m not gonna stand here and play name games all day long. I’m working for ridge.

Carter: For ridge?

Justin: I didn’t stutter. You heard me.

Quinn: Okay, justin. Please, you… you can’t tell anyone about this. But you especially can’t tell ridge!


Sheila: Look, steffy, you’re a mom, too. You have– you have two beautiful, beautiful children–

Steffy: You made a choice! You put finn up for adoption when he was a baby.

Sheila: But I thought I was doing what was best at the time.

Steffy: And I’m doing what is best for him now. And that’s you staying far away from him and my son.

Sheila: But I’m not a monster.

Steffy: Oh yeah, you are.

Sheila: No, I’m not. I– I didn’t come here to cause you any trouble, I just– I just want to hold my grandson.

Steffy: You already held him! You did it last time when you came here without my permission.

Sheila: Look, just– just put your feet in my shoes for just a minute, because it would break your heart. This is breaking my heart!

Steffy: You need to stop with this obsession. You’re reliving this pattern over and over again. You’re going after my husband and my son? It’s really– it’s really starting to scare me.

Sheila: Look,

[ Stammering ] I don’t mean to frighten you. I understand how it would be difficult to trust me. I– I don’t have a great track record with your family.

Steffy: You tried to murder half of my family.

Sheila: I’m not that person anymore! I’m a grandmother and a mother that would just love to have a place in finn and hayes’s lives.

Steffy: You’re trying to make this sound so innocent.

Sheila: It’s because it is! It doesn’t have to be ugly or complicated. If you could just empathize with me on any level at all. Give me a chance to prove to you that I’m not the woman that i was back then. Please, please, steffy. Don’t keep me away from my son.

Ridge: I hate this. I hate all of it. But you know what? More than anything else, to see my dad waste time with this woman breaks my heart.

Katie: Well, he certainly does seem like he’s defending her an awful lot.

Ridge: And why is that? What does– what does she bring to the table? He just– he just seems upset all the time, no?

Katie: There were a lot of good years, you know, in the beginning, and eric was thriving. He seemed energized, really happy to have this new woman on his arm.

Ridge: But that was then. What about now? What’s happening now? It just– it seems this whole marriage is a chore.

Katie: You know my theory? He’s afraid of being alone, of having no one to go home to.

Ridge: Huh. I see. So, all the women in los angeles, southern california– let’s– let’s say he didn’t want to travel anymore. All women in walking distance–

[ Katie laughing ] This is the only option?

Katie: Okay, you– you’re preaching to the choir, okay? I have been trying to convince him that there are many, many women who would love to share a martini with him. I mean, he is the kindest man I–I have ever known. He’s so loyal and– and principled, and maybe to a fault.

Ridge: These are all great qualities. Qualities that quinn takes advantage of. Why would she stop now?

[ Katie sighing ]

Katie: I don’t know. Maybe because she doesn’t want to lose him. You know, she pleaded with him to take her back. I just can’t imagine that she would be stupid enough to cheat on him again.

Ridge: Unless… it being quinn, likes to live on the edge. Unless she wants to be caught.

Quinn: If ridge were to find out–

Carter: What do we have to do to forget this ever happened?

Justin: Eric forgave you. You still have your job. You, too. You’re still his wife. He saw fit to give you another chance. Yet, here we are, creeping around behind his back. With him, again. I hope it was worth it.

Quinn: Okay, look. We have A… we have an understanding.

Justin: So, you’re not a married woman?

Quinn: Yes! No, I– I am a married woman. You just–you–you– you don’t have any idea what it is you walked in on.

Justin: Okay, quinn. You can keep telling yourself that. I feel terrible for eric. Oh, I hear he’s a sweet man. He’s not going to take this too well. This is going to be tough on him.

Quinn: Eric knows. Okay? He knows. He– he knows about me and carter. Eric gave us permission.

[ Quinn sighing ] Want your clothes to smell freshly washed

Steffy: Nice try. But I’ll never believe you changed. Not after all the horrible crimes you’ve committed against my family.

Sheila: I’m a– I’m a different person. Now, I– I was really struggling with some dark demons back then.

Steffy: Ooh yeah, demons for sure. Too many to count. But I see you. I know who you are. You’re fake. You are so fake. Finn may have sympathy for you, but I don’T. And I feel bad for him. I feel so bad. He’s now realized what his birth mother is, who she is, and what she’s capable of. And that fake collapse, oh please. Get out of here. You know how terrified he was? He thought you were going to die, and he rushed you to the hospital.

Sheila: He rushed me because he cared about his mother.

Steffy: Well, thank god he realized it was all a manipulation, shut you down.

Sheila: That’s because of you. You gave him an ultimatum, steffy.

Steffy: He told you to stay out of his life and hayes’S. He did that to protect his family. He sees you for who you truly are. And now you come in here, disrespecting me and my family? You’re only alienating yourself more.

Sheila: Why do you force this hatred on finn? Why do you think you’re the gatekeeper? I– I mean, you’re hellbent on making sure that I never see them! I’m asking for one moment. One more time!

Steffy: No.

Sheila: That’s all I’m asking.

Steffy: No.

Sheila: Is he in the nursery?

Steffy: Do not do this. You take one more step and I promise you, you’re going to regret it.

Katie: Have you heard anything from justin since he left to follow quinn?

Ridge: No, he’s been gone a while. So maybe that’s good news. I’m texting him now.

Katie: I wonder if he’s found out anything interesting.

Justin: So, eric knows about this?

Carter: Yes, justin. Eric knows about this. In fact, it was his idea.

Justin: Come on. You expect me to believe that? No. No way. Eric doesn’t roll like that.

Quinn: It’s true. Why would I lie?

Justin: Cover your little ass.

Carter: She’s being straight with you, justin. Not that it’s your business.

Justin: Okay. Let’s say that you’re both not lying through your teeth. Give me one reason why eric would allow his wife to sleep with another guy.

Quinn: E.D.

Justin: E.D.? What?

Quinn: The reason that carter and I ended up together in the first place is because my husband showed no interest in me the bedroom.

[ Justin scoffing ]

Quinn: I found out later that the reason why he didn’t want to make love to me wasn’t because… wasn’t because he didn’t want to. It’s because he couldn’T.

Justin: He couldn’t?

Quinn: Right. He couldn’T. He was unable to. It was so difficult for him to share this information with me. Look. My husband is an incredible man. He’s very giving, and he’s– he’s very selfless, and he’s understanding. He didn’t want me to give up my intimate life because he wasn’t able to fulfill me anymore.

Justin: So, basically eric gave you permission?

Quinn: Yes! He did! And fought it. We fought it. But he just kept pushing and pushing because he believed that this was the only way to save our relationship. I… carter and I, we had a history, and… look, I know this is shocking.

Carter: Yes, yes, justin, it was very shocking. But eric, he basically insisted. Quinn’s not lying, okay? What she’s saying is fact.

Quinn: Look. I understand, okay. I understand it’s really hard to believe that eric would–would condone this kind of unconventional behavior, but I’m telling you. This was his idea, okay? And–he got it in his head that this is the only way that we were going to save our marriage. And we have had such a difficult time processing this, but I’m telling you, we’re not doing anything behind his back. We are not betraying him. Eric wants this. And if you go and you tell anybody else– if you–if you tell ridge… you’re going to embarrass and humiliate him. So, please. Justin, please. This is so personal, okay? This… my husband is a very private man. Please don’t report back to ridge. Just do the right thing. Keep eric’s secret.

[ Phone chiming ]

Eric: Quinn, what’s that?

Quinn: Nothing.

Eric: We said we were gonna be honest with each other. It was carter, wasn’t it? You should go.

Quinn: Eric.

Eric: You should go. I want this for you.

Quinn: See you at home.

Eric: I’ll be waiting.

Ridge: Okay, what was that? What’s going on between you and quinn?

Finn: Paris, what’s wrong?

Paris: There’s something I need to tell you. Something important.

Finn: What is it? What’s– what do you need to tell me?

Ridge: I know. You’ve forgiven quinn. But I don’t trust her.

Eric: Well, I do trust her, and that’s the only thing that matters, isn’t it?

Ridge: Okay.

Eric: Ridge, I’m happy with the way things have turned out. The arrangement we have.

Ridge: The arrangement you have? That’s what you call your marriage now? It’s an arrangement?

Eric: You know what I mean?

Ridge: I don’t know what you mean? Dad, you say you’re happy, but I don’t see it. Are you happy?

Eric: Leave it alone, ridge. I want you to respect my decision. And I’d really like you to respect my privacy.

[ Phone keyboard tapping ]

[ Phone chiming ]

Ridge: Dad, I’m sorry. Believe you, I do believe you. I respect your privacy. If you think I’m prying, I’m not. Just worried about you.

Katie: Hi, gentlemen. Um, what’s going on?

Ridge: That’s what I’m trying to figure out.

Finn: Have I done something to upset you?

Paris: No, not at all.

Finn: Then, what’s going… what’s going on? Paris, what’s wrong?

Paris: It’s just being here with you and steffy. The generosity that you’ve shown me. I’m just feeling a lot of joy and appreciation. Because I’m happy for you two. The relationship that you have. Back together, just the way you should be.

Finn: Okay, yeah. But it seems a little more intense. Like there’s more going on.

Steffy: Is everything all right?

Finn: Yeah, well, paris said she has something she needs to tell me.

Paris: Tell you both. It’s time.

Steffy: Time for what?

Paris: For me to leave. But I am so grateful for you two giving me a place to stay. But I think it’s best for everyone if I move out. My plaque psoriasis…

Steffy: You’re leaving?

Paris: Yeah.

Finn: Because you want to or because you feel pressured to? Because I really hope that’s not the case. I mean, we enjoy having you here.

Paris: And I enjoy being here.

Steffy: Then why go?

Paris: You know, it was never supposed to be a permanent thing. And I wanna get out of the way before it feels like I’m taking advantage.

Steffy: We’d never…we’d never feel that way.

Paris: I know, but maybe I would start to feel like that. I adore your kids, and I adore you and finn. That’s why it’s time for me to leave.

Eric: Listen, I appreciate your concern, both of you. I have a good son. I have an even more wonderful next door neighbor. But look, I wouldn’t have taken quinn back if I didn’t want to have a life with her.

Ridge: A life. Your one life. Your one and only life. It doesn’t seem that you’re enjoying it.

Eric: Who says I’m not?

Ridge: Me! Everybody that sees you. You come in here with that face, your body language, just walking around, I know it. Why are you with this woman if she’s not bringing you any joy?

Eric: She does bring me joy!

Ridge: She does not bring you joy! I was here. I saw this weird goodbye thing you guys had. This almost hug, looking at each other. I don’t know what that is. It’s not two people that love each other, it was weird. It was sad. And where were you? What happened to you? The man that likes to go home and makes martinis for his wife and have a drink at the house?

Katie: Okay, ridge, I think you made your point, so let’s just– let’s just ease up a little bit.

Eric: Or a lot.

Katie: Eric is capable of making his own decisions.

Eric: Yes I am. Since before either one of you was born, as it turns out.

Ridge: Okay, yes. But sometimes, lately, you make decisions that cause you harm. So, I’m trying to help you avoid that.

Katie: Maybe the best way to help is to just listen. I mean, even if it’s hard for us to understand, eric is… eric is saying that his relationship with quinn is working for him.

Eric: She’s a wise woman here. Maybe you should listen to her, ridge. I’ve always admired that about you, katie. The voice of reason in the middle of chaos.

Katie: All right, well, let’s not misunderstand. I am concerned about you as well. And I am here for you if you ever want to talk.

Eric: You see the difference here, ridge? “If you ever want to talk” is what she offers instead of being forced into it.

Ridge: All right, all right.

Eric: And speaking of that, how about this evening, katie?

Katie: This evening?

Eric: Mm-hmm. Quinn will be out until pretty late. If you don’t have plans, maybe you’d like to stop by.

Katie: Um, okay, sure. I’d like that.

Eric: Good. All right.

Ridge: You know, they’re expecting you in the cutting room.

Eric: That’s where I’m going.

Ridge: Dad, you gotta understand something.

Eric: Yes, son, I know. I love you too.

Ridge: You heard that, right? Quinn is going out again.

Katie: Yeah, it’s strange.

[ Door knocking ]

I may have moderate to

severe rheumatoid arthritis.

Finn: Do you have a new place lined up?

Paris: Working on it. Got a few leads. Don’t worry. I’ll be fine.

Steffy: I’m not worried about you, I’m worried about us.

Finn: Yeah.

Paris: No, don’t be. You guys are more than fine. And that’s what makes me happy. Being here, seeing you guys together, I’ve gotten to see first hand how strong you two really are. And then, you know, sheila came into finn’s life and his loyalty never wavered from you. He’s so committed to you, steffy. It’s a beautiful thing. How lucky you two are to have each other.

Steffy: Yes we are. And we were so lucky to have this time with you. Honestly. We’re gonna miss you.

Finn: Yeah, and so will kelly and hayes.

Paris: Well, it’s not like I’ll be a stranger.

Steffy: You are welcome back any time you’d like. The kids will be so thrilled to see you.

Paris: Okay, I’m definitely coming back, then.

Finn: When are you planning on moving?

Paris: Depends on how quickly I find a place. But I’m looking at a few possibilities, closing in on one. So. Oh, I actually have to return a call about that and if it goes well, then I’ll be back to pick up my things.

Steffy: Okay, I guess, good luck. It sucks, but I get it.

Paris: Thank you for everything. You both have been so kind to me and I can’t thank you enough.

Ridge: Well, I’m happy dad has you for a neighbor.

Katie: I’ve actually been spending a lot of time over there lately.

Ridge: You have? With dad and quinn?

Katie: No, no. As you said, quinn has been out a lot.

Ridge: Yeah, and it’s weird, right? There’s something going on, here.

Katie: Well, whatever it is, eric seems okay with it.

Ridge: He does not seem okay with it. Did you see that guy? He seems defeated.

Katie: Yeah, I know what you mean. But he also seems to be actively encouraging it. Ridge, I don’t know what to say. The only thing we can do is hope that he reaches out to us if he needs to.

Ridge: He deserves better. So much better.

Katie: Yeah, I agree. I mean, he’s the kindest man I’ve ever known. What he puts out to the world, he should get back in return.

Ridge: He is kind, he is generous. And there are people who may take advantage of that.

Quinn: I wasn’t gonna come, and then I thought, “I don’t know, maybe we could just talk?” You’re laughing. And then you look at me like that.

Carter: Like what?

Quinn: Like that.

Carter: It’s okay, quinn. It’s safe. We had to stop ourselves the other day, so how about we pick up where we left off? Nope

Steffy: Kinda bums me out. I mean, I do understand why she had to leave.

Finn: Well, yeah. I mean, we can be a lot to handle.

Steffy: We can be a lot to handle? No, you can be a lot.

Finn: Oh, okay.

Steffy: Not me. No. But she is right about something. About the strength we have as a couple. Like, I feel like we’re in a good place now.

Finn: Yeah, sure does. It’s malibu. No better place in the world. Oh, you were talking about us.

Steffy: Yeah!

Finn: Oh, I see. That too. But, you do have to admit the view of the ocean is pretty amazing. And the, you know, the waves are always–

Steffy: I get what you’re trying to do. I know what you’re trying to do. You still want to go surfing. You wanted to do that before paris dropped the bomb.

Finn: You don’t mind?

Steffy: No, not at all. I mean, I should get back to work anyway. Especially while the kids are asleep.

Finn: You’re the best.

Steffy: You’re the best.

Finn: You’re the best.

Steffy: Don’t forget it.

Finn: Okay, I’m going surfing.

Steffy: Okay, bye.

Steffy: Ugh.

Finn: Won’t be long!

Steffy: I know. To work. Okay, um, where–okay.

Sheila: Hello, steffy.

Steffy: What! Sheila, what are you doing here? You are not welcomed here. Get out, now!

Katie: You know what I think? I really think that this is about loneliness.

Ridge: Loneliness, really? That’s why he’s staying with quinn?

Katie: Well, he doesn’t seem exactly thrilled about it, right? I mean, I’m sure he’s gotta still be hurting over her affair, but at the same time, he doesn’t want to be alone, so…

Ridge: So, it’s los angeles! There’s hundreds, thousands of women out there.

Katie: Quinn is familiar. You know? They have a routine.

Ridge: And what is that routine? He gets home, she’s not there because she left for the evening. What is that? What kind of marriage is that?

Katie: Please don’t harass him. And listen, I’m going over there tonight, okay? Maybe he’ll open up to me.

Ridge: Or maybe I’ll find out before then.

Katie: How?

Ridge: I have someone checking on her. I’ll find out what she’s up to.

Carter: Are you sure?

[ Door opening ] Justin?

Justin: You’re busted.

[ Upbeat mellow instrumental ]

Steffy: Well, I think we sufficiently tired out the kids. Kelly and hayes passed out the moment I put them down.

Finn: Play hard, crash hard.

Steffy: Yeah. Words to live by. Did we do the same to uh, to paris? Where is she?

Finn: She’s upstairs, I think she’s coming back.

Steffy: Your instincts were right about her. I think she’s great, you know. She’s such a welcomed addition.

Finn: Oh seriously. Paris is awesome. She’s great with the kids, a good friend. Always upbeat.

Steffy: Yeah.

Finn: Makes it impossible to be in a bad mood when when you’re around her. It’s hard to imagine life around here without her.

Steffy: I know. Whoa.

[ Finn laughs ]

Paris: Careful what you wish for. I could easily become the guest that comes to stay for a night and never leaves.

Finn: That wouldn’t be the worst.

Thomas: Ah-ah-ah… oh!

Douglas: I won!

Hope: Again!

Thomas: Why do I bother? Why do I bother? I don’t know. This makes no sense.

Douglas: I’m the undefeated champion of the world!

Hope: Oh, and he’s modest, too.

Thomas: Very.

Douglas: And you’re the best designer ever? Right?

Thomas: Well, I’m not sure about that, but I’m definitely trying.

Hope: Oh. Well, your designs have been wonderful.

Thomas: Thank you.

Hope: I mean it. I am really happy we’re working together.

Douglas: Hear that, daddy? You make mommy happy.

Thomas: Well. That is what I live for. Pew-pew-pew!

Hope: All right, I play the next winner.

Thomas: You play the winner? Okay, I gotta step up my game.

Hope: Aww. Beth must be loving this. She’s got her daddy all to herself. All right, well you two have fun. Ah-hem. Douglas. That was a brilliant idea. Beth is having a blast.

Douglas: She gets to be alone with liam and I get to be alone with my mommy and daddy. C’mon! I want to show you something.

Thomas: Okay.

Douglas: I’ve been practicing throwing football.

Thomas: Okay. Here. Give it to mE. Whoa! Okay, let’s go outside. I want to see that arm in action.

Hope: All right, have fun you two. I will be here working away!

Douglas: Bye mommmy.

Thomas: See ya.

Paris: I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to eavesdrop.

Steffy: What?

Finn: You didn’T. You just walked in the room.

Steffy: It’s no secret how highly we think of you. You have a calming effect on this household. And there’s a lot of order where there used to be chaos… everywhere.

Paris: Another pair of hands can do wonders.

Steffy: It’s amazing but I’m not just talking about that. I’m just so grateful to have you here. Your spirit. Like, you really light up this house and our family.

Paris: That’s so sweet. But no, you guys have given me so much. From a roof over my head to a place in your beautiful childrens’ lives. A friendship I never expected. You guys are the best. From my heart. Paris: Zoe staying in paris was not the outcome I expected. And no doubt, it threw my life up in the air. But it’s funny how things work out. Like as unhappy as I was, if zoe had come back I wouldn’t be in this beautiful place on the ocean no less.

Steffy: I’m so glad we could share it with you. But it’s not just the location, it’s the way this house feels. The love and the laughter, ah! I’m just so lucky to be living here.

Finn: Paris. We’re the lucky ones. I mean, steffy, the kids. Me.

Steffy: Yeah, kelly and hayes adore you. I actually get a little jealous sometimes, a little bit.

Paris: Stop it.

Steffy: I do, I do. Like come on, I’m a mom. But like, it’s so good to have your energy here. A strong female. Your spirit, you’re so kind. And you sing, and then you go to work and you handle the foundation and then you have your input for the future– like, it’s invaluable.

Paris: I’m actually really enjoying that.

Steffy: Good. So, how are things with zende?

Paris: You know it’s kind of an added perk working with him.

Steffy: Mm-hm.

Paris: And thomas, oh, he’s talented.

Steffy: Don’t tell him that. His head is already way too big.

Steffy: So are zende and thomas playing nicely?

Paris: Yeah, from what I’ve seen.

Steffy: Really?

Paris: Yeah.

Steffy: Like, I know they’ve had some isues before but I have faith they’re gonna figure it out.

Paris: That’s what family does.

Steffy: Yeah, and that’s what’s good about my grandfather. He like, throws all the elements out there and they just have to figure it out. It’s just what we do– babe. Babe. What are you doin’?

Finn: My sunblock. Now that family time’s over, I want to hit those big waves. And I have not forgotten about getting you a surfboard yet. I–I will not take no for an answer.

Paris: Okay. I will definitely take you up on that.

[ Finn laughs ]

Hope: I emailed some adjustments. Nothing major. But if they don’t feel right, you don’t have to take them. I trust your instincts. Okay, sounds good. Thank you, zende. Talk later.

Thomas: Well, that is why you’re so great to work for.

[ Hope laughs ]

Hope: Wha–what is?

Thomas: Well, you trust your creative team. You know, zende designed the dress, sure, but it’s your line and you have the last call and you gave it to him. It shows you trust us. And we really appreciate that.

Hope: Well, I love both of your designs. And I think you two have found the perfect balance for my line.

Thomas: Well, I gotta say, you know– don’t tell zende I said this but he’s really impressed me lately, you know? He’s grown so much and he’s shown commitment to the line. He’s really stepped up his game and quickly. You know who else has stepped up his game? Mm…douglas! I have to say he’s probably the next tom brady.

Hope: Oh my goodness, that’s high praise.

Douglas: Mommy and liam have been helping me.

Hope: Mmhm. It sure has been fun watching you have fun, it makes me happy.

Douglas: I love it when you’re happy, mommy.

Hope: Oh, I do too. It’s been a nice change of pace, actually. I’m sorry there were some sad times before.

Douglas: Mommy and beth and I all felt bad when liam was away.

Thomas: I know you did, bud.

Douglas: Mommy really missed him. She cried when she thought we were sleeping, but sometimes I could hear her.

Hope: Oh, sweetie. You weren’t supposed to hear that. I’m sorry.

Douglas: But it’s okay to cry when you’re sad. Right, daddy?

Thomas: That’s right. Exactly.

Douglas: Everything’s so much better now. I don’t know why liam was gone or where he went, but I’m glad he came home. Mommy’s smiling now and she loves liam so much. Truthfully, it’s frustrating to see how fast dust reappears.

Paris: Everything good with the babes?

Steffy: Haven’t even changed position. We really wore them out.

Finn: Well, it helps having a third.

Steffy: Yeah, it’s nice having more energy on our side.

Paris: What can I say? Kelly and hayes just bring out the big kid in me.

[ Steffy laughs ] They really do love you. Are you still looking for that sunblock?

Finn: It’s driving me crazy. I don’t know where– it has to be in here somewhere.

Paris: Did you leave it on the beach?

Finn: I never forget things.

Steffy: Except for the sunblock?

Finn: Ha. Ha.

Steffy: Okay, I got a phone conference I’m gonna do in the bedroom. Thanks so much for everything today, paris.

Paris: Oh, it was such a chore. Splashing in the ocean, running on the beach…

Steffy: Chasing after some over excited kids? We really appreciate you.

Paris: You’re very welcome.

Steffy: All right, I’m gonna take that call. Thanks.

Paris: So do you need an extra pair of eyes?

Finn: Oh no, you– you relax. Enjoy the quiet while it lasts.

Paris: Oh, seriously–

Finn: You’ve done enough today.

Paris: Okay, fine.

Finn: Yeah.

Paris: I enjoyed every minute of it.

Finn: Well, that’s what makes you so great. How in the moment you are. You find joy in all of the moments. Have you always been this super positive person?

Paris: Positive always beats negative every time.

Finn: I’m grateful to have your positivity in our lives. You have a special place in our hearts.

Thomas: Would you look at that? His aim, his follow through? It’s incredible.

Hope: I just– I love how determined he is. It’s like when he sets his mind to something, he gives it his all. He has to master it.

Thomas: He is a really rare and exceptional kid. I can’t believe that I had like, any part in making that, you know? That I have any influence on him at all? It’s pretty incredible.

Hope: Well, I feel the same way. Thomas, thank you for sharing& your son with me.

Thomas: I couldn’t have made a better choice for douglas.

[ Hope chuckles ]

Hope: Well, I’m glad you still feel that way.

Thomas: Why wouldn’t I?

Hope: I don’t know. Douglas has been through a lot for a kid his age.

Thomas: Yeah. But, you know that’s life. It kind of just happens. But after everything he has been through it’s turned him into this like, wise young man, you know. And look, you’re an incredible mother so don’t doubt yourself.

Hope: Thank you.

Thomas: Douglas was right about one thing.

Hope: Only one thing?

Thomas: Okay, he’s right about everything. Everything. But don’t tell him that, he’s gonna get a massive head.

Thomas: But what he was right about a minute ago was how happy you arE. You really do seem happy.

[ Hope laughs ]

Hope: Well, I think I have you to thank for that in some part. I mean, we almost lost liam for god knows how long. But thanks to you and your determination and your commitment to the truth, I have my family back together again. And you helped make that happen, thomas. And, I could thank you 1000 times a day, everyday for the rest of my life and it still doesn’t feel like that would be enough but… I don’t know, thomas, you– you really are a changed man.

Thomas: Well, that means a lot hearing you say that.

Thomas: I really do care about you. I always have cared about you– love you, on some level. You know, but now the way I love you is healthy. All I want is your happiness and you’re the happiest I’ve ever seen you, so that makes me happy. If you can choose to be kind to your body

Hope: I know your feelings for me are complicated.

Thomas: Yeah, look, you don’t have to worry. I’m not gonna let those feelings be an issue any longer, okay? I want to preserve what we have right now.

Hope: I value our friendship, too. I want you to understand that. I know what a big deal it was for you to help liam come home to the kids and me. I mean, it was– it was selfless.

Thomas: Liam’s your husband. He’s the man you love. And for a while it’s almost like I didn’t understand that. I did some things I’m not proud of.

[ Hope sighs ]

Hope: Well, we can all lose our way sometimes.

Thomas: But I’m better now. I promise. And douglas, he is happy he’s secure here with the cabin, you, liam, beth. It’s amazing and he gets to see me whenever he wants so that’s great.

Hope: Which is a lot because he certainly adores you.

Thomas: I love him so much. He’s my number one priority. I do have another priority though and that’s you. It is. Your happiness. Making sure that beautiful smile lights up that beautiful face just like that.

[ Hope exhales ]

Hope: I’m going to be honest. I’m–I’m really happy that things are easy between us now. And not just for douglas’ sake. For me too, you know, I’ve really been enjoying co-parenting together, and working together. I really do feel like we look out for each other.

Thomas: Well, despite my missteps, you and I have had some good times together. I’ll always cherish those memories.

Hope: Me too. I’m gonna go check on douglas.

Finn: Got it.

Paris: Sorry?

Finn: Sunblock. Finally found it. But I’m gonna go hit the waves but I need to ask you for a favor, first.

Paris: Name it.

Finn: Get my back?

Paris: There. All protected.

Finn: Why stop there? You are so beautiful.

Paris: Finn. You’re married. You have a beautiful family with steffy.

Finn: I’ve never met anyone like you. I need you in my life, paris. All right, paris. I’m headed to the beach. Catch the waves. Beach time.

Paris: Hey, what’s up? What is it?

Finn: Why are you looking at me like that?

Paris: You are amazing. Like, I mean you’re handsome, you’re smart. You’re a wonderful husband. A loving dad. You’re even a doctor? The complete and total package. And, steffy is so lucky to have you. Finn, there’s something that you need to know. And it’s not easy for me to say.

Finn: What’s wrong? You can tell me.

Quinn: I’ve been wanting this, to be in your arms again

Carter: It’s all I’ve wanted, to hold you, touch you.

[Shauna gasps]

Shauna: It happened!

Quinn: What happened?

Shauna: Oh, come on, quinn. You’re glowing. It can only mean one thing, eric’s “problem” is no longer a problem. He’s able to– he’s not? Ah, quinn, things are still the same under the sheets?

Quinn: Yes and no.

Shauna: Okay. I’m confused. What’s going on?

Brooke: You paid eric a visit last night too?

Katie: Yeah, he said that you and ridge were there earlier.

Brooke: Yeah, so you drop by on a whim, or…?

Katie: Well, I’m his neighbor. I thought I’d touch base.

Brooke: Even though you see him every day.

Katie: At work.

Brooke: So you just thought you’d catch up with him at home.

Katie: I was probably there for the same reason you and ridge were there.

Brooke: Quinn.

Katie: Mhm, imagine my surprise to find out that his wife wasn’t at home.

Brooke: What? She still wasn’t back yet?

Katie: Yeah, I mean, it was so strange. Eric is there all by himself. While quinn is out, god knows where? I mean, after everything she has put that man through, it’s unconscionable that she wasn’t at home with her husband.

Carter: Eric.

Eric: Carter, thank you for coming.

Carter: Yeah, when the boss summons you.

Eric: I’m sure you can guess why I wanted to talk to you. I know you slept with my wife last night.

Brooke: I agree. It is unconscionable. Quinn is out there enjoying herself, while eric is roaming around that big house alone.

Katie: I just, I don’t get it. I mean, I know that eric is the kindest, most forgiving man I know. But to allow quinn back into his life after everything she’s done to him. And just she can’t even be bothered to stick around after he let her move back in. It just shows how self-centered and selfish she is.

Brooke: I know, I know, you’re preaching to the choir, I mean I’ve never liked that woman from the very beginning.

Katie: Well, neither did I. But what gets me is that he’s not blind. He can see the same things we do and yet he continues to defend her. Like saying she was out last night with his blessing.

Brooke: His blessing, you didn’t believe him, did you?

Katie: The thing is I did. Which is what concerns me even more. It’s like he trusts quinn even when she’s given him every reason not too. There’s got to be something more going on.

Brooke: What do you mean?

Katie: Eric said he hadn’t been the perfect husband, either. That he’s let quinn down. Though I can’t imagine how that could be true.

Brooke: Oh, he’s just saying that to take the heat off quinn. He knows you have issues with her too.

Katie: So, your thinking he’s pointing the finger at him to make up for her shortcomings?

Brooke: I hate seeing him tied to a woman like quinn. She just keeps on hurting him. But he tries to cover, you know, especially with ridge and me. Pretends like everything’s just fine.

Katie: But it’s not fine. That’s why when he was alluding to the fact that he wasn’t able to give quinn everything she wants or needs.

Brooke: That’s ridiculous, I mean eric is the most generous husband in the world.

Katie: Well, I’m not talking about material things. I’m talking about… intimacy.

Eric: I talked to quinn when she came home last night. I asked her point blank if she had sex with you and she confirmed. Awkward I know, but I, I told you and I assure you now, I’m okay with this. It’s not the way I would’ve wanted it, it’s not the way I wanted my life with quinn to be. But, I wanted to be, I wanted to be the man that filled her needs, but that’s just simply not possible.

Shauna: Don’t leave me hanging! Out with it!

Quinn: I don’t really want to talk about it.

Shauna: To your very best friend? How can you not tell me?

Quinn: Alright, okay, fine. I will tell you, but you have to promise me you’re not gonna tell anyone this. I mean it. Nobody can know. You were right this is about me and eric. But also, not just about me and eric.

Shauna: I’m not following.

Quinn: Okay… you know what we’ve been struggling with right? Eric’s E.D. And it doesn’t change how I feel about him. I love my husband as much as I always have. And, and eric loves me more than I ever thought possible.

Shauna: Okay, so?

Quinn: So, you’re not even gonna believe what eric wanted me to do.

Shauna: Tell me.

Quinn: Okay, just first let me just say I am never going to question my husband’s commitment to my happiness ever again.

Shauna: What are you talking about? A new home means new projects.

Brooke: Well, you must have had quite a heart to heart with eric.

Katie: I just hate seeing him so frustrated with himself. When in my opinion, he has absolutely no reason to be.

Brooke: Frustrated how?

Katie: When I see eric, I see a man who is as handsome as ever, still vital, has many wonderful years ahead of him. But for some reason he doesn’t see himself that way and it’s tied to quinn.

Brooke: Because of her affair with a younger man.

Katie: Not just any younger man, carter walton. Mr. Eight-pack. The guy is drop dead gorgeous. I mean I know that quinn and carter aren’t together anymore but if eric and quinn are having problems in the bedroom.

Brooke: We still don’t know that they are.

Katie: I’m just saying that maybe, eric’s worried that there’s some comparison going on, or that he can’t compete sexually. I– if nothing else, I think he’s just afraid of being alone at this stage in his life. He doesn’t like the prospect of growing old all by himself and he’s not himself. And I know quinn is not making this any better. I mean come on, not being at home with her husband when clearly, he’s going through something. How insensitive can you be? Unless I’m missing something. Unless we’re all missing something.

Eric: I want you to understand something carter. This is not easy for me. I’ve assured you that I’m okay with it but it’s not easy for me. Having my wife with another man. If I had entertained this thought a year ago, six months ago, I, I… I never would’ve imagined that. Let alone encouraged it. I love quinn. I know you do too. I know that you love a lot of the same things about her that I do. Her energy, her spontaneity, her humor, her sensuality, her exquisite beauty. But I want to make one thing clear. In spite of how you feel about her and everything she brings to your life, the feelings that you have for her. You must never under any condition, consider quinn yours.

Shauna: Are you going to tell me or keep talking in riddles? I can see you had sex and from the look of your face it was amazing. But this doesn’t make any sense. So, spit it out. I mean eric he isn’t able to–

Quinn: Eric still isn’t able to be my husband in that way.

Shauna: Would you just spit it out.

Quinn: You know, I wouldn’t even believe it if i wasn’t living this right now. My husband loves me so much, he doesn’t want me to give up that part of my life.

Shauna: Quinn, you can’t possibly mean that–

Quinn: Eric asked me to sleep with carter. Yeah, right. I was as shocked as you are right now when he first told me. And I also said “no way.”

Shauna: Huh. But now you’re having sex. You and carter

Quinn: Yeah. Last night. And it was incredible! I’ve got moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.

Brooke: I don’t think we’re missing anything. I think it’s like what you said: Eric needs his wife. And quinn is just not there to notice. I mean, she’s off doing whatever it is that she does when she’s not being the mistress of the manor.

Katie: But that’s not really anything new. What’s different is for eric to encourage it, for him to condone it. He’s clearly lonely. Surely quinn realizes that.

Brooke: Oh god, no. I don’t even think she cares. I mean, it’s all about quinn. What quinn wants, what quinn needs.

Katie: And what she needed was carter.

Brooke: Really can’t believe that he got stuck in her web. And I don’t think he’s the last man that will.

Katie: You think that quinn would betray eric again?

Brooke: I don’t know. I can’t really be objective about it. We have too much history. And none of it good. But I swear if she does something to hurt eric again.

Katie: Oh, no. I feel the same way. If she ever does anything like that and I find out about it. No way. Hopefully it won’t come to that. Hopefully, eric will realize that quinn is not the woman that he needs. He deserves so much better than her.

Eric: Quinn is mrs. Eric forrester. And she will continue to be in every way. Except one. Have I made myself clear? Oh, and one other thing. Very important thing. No one is to know about this arrangement. Especially ridge.

Carter: Of course.

Shauna: Eric actually told you to be with carter?

Quinn: Yes.

Shauna: Oh my god, oh my god.

Quinn: Eric is my husband and what he was asking me to do– I’m so conflicted.

Shauna: Well of course you are, you love him. And for him to even suggest something like that.

Quinn: Eric says that he loves me so much, that he is willing to sacrifice so that I could be fulfilled as a woman. Shauna, the first, the first night he set up for me and carter, we were like, “no way.” I mean no way; we respect eric too much. And then he set up another encounter, last night. He actually sent me to carter’s loft.

Shauna: And you two actually–

Quinn: Well yes, of course we did. I mean I–I love carter. We can’t even keep our hands off each other when we don’t have permission

Shauna: I can’t– I can’t believe this; did you spend the night?

Quinn: No. No, I went home, to my husband.

Shauna: Did you see eric?

Quinn: Yeah, he was awake when I got into bed.

Shauna: Wow, wow, well that must’ve been awkward. Did you get the cold shoulder?

Quinn: No. Nope, he was happy for me.

Shauna: Wait quinn, wait a minute. You guys actually talked about what happened

Quinn: Mm-hm, it was awkward. He wanted to know. He wanted to know if carter and I had sex. He could tell by the look on my face that we had. And then he said that’s what he wanted, and we just laid there in each others’ arms.

Shauna: I… I honestly don’t know what to say. I mean I haven’t been with a man for a while. And you, you’re living a fantasy. Everyone remembers the moment they heard,

Shauna: I’m absolutely mind blown.

Quinn: Tell me about it. I can’t even concentrate. I love my husband and I don’t want to hurt him.

Shauna: And then there’s carter.

Quinn: I love carter too and when we’re together we can’t keep our hands off each other.

Shauna: Oh well, well I guess I’ll be living vicariously through you. Quinn, I know you’ve always been a bit unconventional, but this.

Quinn: I know.

Brooke: I’m just so glad that you live next door to eric, and you can keep an eye on him.

Katie: Oh, I intend to. Like I said brooke I just sense that there’s so much more going on inside of eric than what he’s saying to me or to anyone.

Carter: I didn’t realize you were in here. I can go.

Quinn: No, don’T. Lock it. Um… I can’t stop thinking about last night.

Carter: Me neither.

Quinn: I can’T… I can’t comprehend how eric wants this for me.

Carter: Yeah, I know.

Quinn: I love my husband… but, I love you too.

[ Soft instrumental ]

Carter: Are we sure?

Quinn: I’m not sure about any of this.

Eric: My sex life is over. Yours doesn’t have to be.

[ Knocking on door ]

Katie: Hey.

Eric: Katie. Hi. Come in.

Katie: Oh, thanks. Sorry to pop over. I know it’s late. I was just looking for ridge and brooke. She said that they were gonna stop by.

Eric: Uh, they were here. You just missed ’em.

Katie: Okay. Well um, I’ll text her. Sorry, it’s late. I don’t want to interrupt you and quinn.

Eric: No, no. My wife’s not here. Quinn’s out for the evening.

Finn: Both kids– sound asleep.

[ Steffy sighing ]

Steffy: Thank god. I don’t want to jinx us, but I think hayes might be finally sleeping through the night? Hi…

Finn: Looks that way.

Steffy: You know what that means.

Finn: Mm-hm.

Steffy: We haven’t had many opportunities but dr. Finnegan, I think it’s gonna be your lucky night.

[ Finn sighing ] Unless you’re too exhausted from saving lives and singing lullabies.

Finn: I think I can muster up some energy.

Finn: I’m liking this bedside manner. You might’ve missed your calling.

Steffy: Oh, no, no, no, no, no. There’s only room for one doctor in this house and that is you. I mean, you’re so kind and compassionate. And you’re such a patient father.

Finn: Most of the time.

Steffy: No seriously, you’re an amazing dad. You’ve taken to it beautifully.

Finn: I’m glad I’m getting high marks.

[ Steffy laughing ]

Steffy: I couldn’t ask for more from you. You do so much to help everyone. You really go out of your way. I just think it’s time that… I do something special for you.

Katie: I probably shouldn’t say this but I don’t get how you allowed quinn to come back into this house, into your life.

Eric: She’s my wife, katie.

Katie: Yeah, well–

Eric: It works for us. I have every confidence that we’re going to find wonderful ways to improve our marriage in the future.

Katie: Okay, I get it, that you and quinn are the only two people who know what goes on behind closed doors. But you’re… you’re so kind and you’re so forgiving and maybe too forgiving. And, I don’t want to see that taken advantage of. I want you to be happy.

Eric: I am.

Katie: Are you? ‘Cause here you are, you’re– you’re at home, all by yourself while quinn is out for the night. I mean, where the hell is she?

Quinn: Maybe we should stop. I still feel guilty. I– it doesn’t matter that eric sent us over here with a note of permission.

Carter: Okay. Okay, we can stop… but I don’t want to.

[ Sighing ]

Quinn: Oh god… here’s a good halloween trick.

Finn: You’re in a mood tonight.

Steffy: I can be sweet when I want to be.

Finn: Mm, well, I like your soft side. I like every side of you.

Steffy: Good. Because you’re stuck with me.

Finn: Promise?

Steffy: Yeah, I’d be a fool to let you go.

Finn: And if we can make it through these last few months relatively unscathed…

Steffy: We’re in a better place because of it. I know how devoted you are to me and our kids. You would do anything for us. I get that. You cut ties with your birth mother and I know that was really hard for you.

Finn: It was necessary. Our life is too precious to me, steffy. I’m not gonna let sheila or anyone cause problems for us.

Steffy: You’re so incredible, you really are. I couldn’t imagine doing this without you. Creating this little world.

Finn: I think we both got it pretty well.

Steffy: Mm-hm. As long as we have more nights like this…

Finn: Mm, you did promise something… extra special.

Steffy: Extra special. Buckle up. It’s just getting started.

Katie: How is quinn not home? I mean, given everything she’s done to you, I would think that she would be savoring every moment

Eric: We spend plenty of time together katie, we do.

Katie: Well, I would think that she’s on a girls’ night out but she doesn’t have any friends. I mean, she’s pretty much alienated everyone around her. You included–

Eric: Katie.

Katie: Or so I thought.

Eric: I haven’t been the perfect husband. I know that’s hard for a lot of people to understand. But it’s true. I’ve let quinn down. You and brooke think that I’m somebody that’s beyond reproach but…

Katie: You are. I mean, to us you’re about as perfect as any man could be.

Yeah, well, that’s simply not the truth. You give me way too much credit.

Katie: You and I have known each other for a long time, haven’t we? And I have never seen you like this. ]

Katie: It just worries me that she’s– she’s finally broken you down. And she makes you feel like you’re not good enough for her–

Eric: No, she is– she doesn’t make me feel that way. No.

Katie: Well, I don’t think she knows how lucky she is. I mean, she married well above herself.

Eric: Well, marriages are complicated, katie. Oh wait a minute, you know that as well as anybody.

Katie: Okay, fine. That’s true. But you’ve giving her everything she wants and needs.

Eric: No, not everything.

Katie: What are you talking about? She has everything. She has you by her side, she has a beautiful house, she has a thriving career at forrester.

Eric: Yeah, well that doesn’t mean there isn’t something missing.

Katie: Okay. I– I understand if you don’t want to talk about this, if it makes you feel uncomfortable.

Eric: Okay. When you say that there’s “something missing,” and you’re not giving her everything that she needs… are you– are you talking sexually?

[ Quinn moaning ]

Quinn: I can’t lie. I’ve been wanting this, to be in your arms again.

Carter: It’s all I’ve wanted. To hold you, touch you.

[ Quinn moaning ]

[ Quinn sighing ]

Quinn: This is torture.

Carter: I know.

Quinn: But I love you.

[ Quinn sighing ]


Katie: Like I said… we don’t have to get into this. I just– I just want you to know that–

Eric: That you care,

Katie: Yeah.

Eric: It’s coming from a good place.

Katie: It is. I know how amazing you are and I know I keep saying that–

Eric: No, you can– keep saying that. It’s fine. I can– I can take it.

Katie: I just kind feel like I’ve hit you with a lot of quinn negativity today.

Eric: It kind of runs in your family, doesn’t it?

Katie: Mm. Well, the admiration for you runs deep in the logan family. Between brooke and donna and me, well, we’re big fans.

Eric: I’m a big fan of the logan girls, too.

Katie: I just think it’s important for you to know how beloved you are. You are.

Katie: Quinn did this messed up thing by having an affair with carter, someone who’s younger, so it’s only natural for you to feel like–

Eric: You know what I feel like? I feel frustrated with myself, with my– with my life, where it is right now. I’m living in this house by myself!

Katie: Well, maybe that’s it. Maybe that’s it. You’re compromising because you’re afraid of being alone. And that’S…normal. We all feel like that sometimes, believe me! You are eric forrester. You don’t have to compromise. Look at everything you’ve done. You’ve created this like, huge, cultural entity: Forrester creations. You’ve raised six accomplished children. You’ve contributed so much to the world and to everyone around you. You’re a freaking legend.

[ Laughing ] Your art, talent… as a designer, as a philanthropist. Speaker of four languages. Mentor to young fashion students. You’re an icon and the best thing is that your best years are still in front of you so you don’t have to settle. Not professionally, not personally, so you don’t have to do it now and you don’t have to do it for quinn. Please eric, I– I hate seeing you like this. Please tell me what’s going on.

Eric: It’s late. Thanks for listening. You’re a good friend.

Katie: Okay. I’m right next door if you need anything.

Eric: Okay.

Finn: Wow. When you said something special, you weren’t kidding. Scoot over.

Steffy: I promised you a surprise, didn’t I?

Finn: Yes. And you did not disappoint.

Steffy: I just want to… take the time to show you how much I adore you and how sexy you are ’cause let’s be honest. I needed this as much as you do.

Finn: You look as… oh. I– I forgot how to talk.

[ Steffy laughing ]

Steffy: Good, ’cause we’re not gonna do much talking.

[ Romantic music ]

[ Dramatic music ]

Eric: How was your night?

Quinn: I didn’t know you were awake.

Eric: Did you gave him my note?

Quinn: Yes.

Eric: What happened?

Quinn: Eric, I can’T.

Eric: Did you make love?

Quinn: Yeah.

Eric: Good.

Quinn: Eric, I don’t– I don’t want to talk about this. I don’t want to hurt you.

Eric: I wish it was me. I so wish it was me. I love you so much.

Quinn: I know how much you love me.

Eric: You’re my wife. I want to give you everything in this life. I want you to be completely fulfilled.

Quinn: I understand but you can never doubt how much I love you.

[ Dramatic music ]

Carter: Quinn.

Quinn: I don’t know if it’s safe for me to come in.

Carter: It’s safe.

Quinn: Well, you’re… probably wondering why I’m here. Eric sent me.

Finn: Everyone’s down in there. Steffy fell asleep with hayes.

Paris: Aw, that’s so sweet. Well, I don’t blame her. She does so much.

Finn: Yeah. And until recently, she had something else to deal with. Something not so pleasant.

Paris: You mean sheila.

Finn: Yeah. And every time I look at my son I– I hear steffy’s voice. The fear just underneath the surface, desperation. You know steffy. She’s a warrior. She’s not afraid of anything. Not until sheila got into the picture. I mean, for her to be so adamant about keeping sheila away from hayes, it’s–

Paris: Can I… do you mind if I ask you a question?

Finn: No, not at all?

Paris: How do you really feel about all of this?

Finn: I try not to think about how I feel.

Paris: Well, I don’t think that’s a good idea.

Finn: I’m too conflicted. Too removed. Yes, sheila is my birth mother but I don’t know her. Steffy and the forrester’s do and they all say the same thing. That she’s psychotic and dangerous. I mean, she is a threat to the family and to my newborn son. She gets fixated on things and may even try to take hayes.

Paris: Well, people change. Maybe she’s not the same person that she was before.

Finn: No one believes that.

Paris: Do you?

Finn: I believe people can change. Whether or not sheila has, I couldn’t tell you. Her wishes and her instincts.

Paris: Wow. I can only imagine how difficult this must be for you.

[ Door knocking ]

Eric: Already?

Ridge: Hey, it’s us.

Eric: Yeah, so I see. Here to take another crack at your old man?

Brooke: Will it help?

Ridge: No, you didn’t sign these before you left.

Brooke: We wanted

Eric: Well, as you can see, I’m fine.

Ridge: As we can see, you’re drinking alone. Where’s quinn?

Carter: Eric sent you?

Quinn: Yeah, he, uh,

Qnnui: Yeah, he, uh, he asked me to deliver this. Says it’s sensitive material and you need to have it right away.

Carter: Don’t you think that’s odd?

Quinn: You know what, carter, I don’t even know what to think anymore. Take it. (Lucky) uh-oh the magic’s disappearing!

Paris: Not to put you on the spot, but doesn’t a little part of you want to know sheila?

Finn: I mean, under different circumstances, it’s only natural, right?

Paris: That’s what I’ve been saying. It’s only natural. That desire deserves to be given consideration.

Finn: Did you not hear the “under different circumstances”? Sheila has done terrible things to the forrester’S. Criminal things. She shot steffy’s mother. Of course, steffy’s gonna hate her.

Paris: Yeah, well, you can know that and still feel a sense of loss. It sucks that you can’t share that with steffy because of their history. I know it must be hard for you.

Finn: Well, thankfully, I’ve got you. You’re a good friend, paris.

Paris: Well, I’ll always be here for you, finn. You and steffy. So, steffy really thinks sheila faked the collapse?

Finn: She doesn’t think it. She’s convinced. She has been from the start.

Paris: You’re a doctor. Wouldn’t you know if sheila was faking?

Finn: Honestly, I don’t know. My objectivity might be compromised. But it really doesn’t matter. Steffy doesn’t want sheila around and I stand by my wife.

Paris: Speaks to the kind of partner you are. Steffy insisting that there’s no middle ground. That you should shut sheila all the way out, period? I’m just wondering if cutting ties with you birth mother forever is really how you wanna handle this.

Eric: I appreciate your concern, but why would my having a martini by myself here be a cause for alarm?

Brooke: Have to admit, it is kind of strange.

Eric: Really? Why?

Brooke: Quinn wanted nothing more but for you to forgive her for what she did with carter and take her back. And now that you have, you’re here drinking alone?

Ridge: Where’s your doting wife?

Eric: What if I told you she was upstairs reading a book?

Ridge: Is she?

Eric: No, she’s not. She’s out. She’s out enjoying herself.

Brooke: Enjoying herself? She can’t do that with you?

Eric: Well, I can’t win with the two of you, can I? You know, if she were here having a drink with me, you wouldn’t approve of that either.

Brooke: Well, at least we would know that she wasn’t with carter again.

Eric: Why would you say that?

Brooke: Eric, I don’t trust her. And neither should you.

Eric: Yeah, well I do. And look, she’s younger than I am, in case you haven’t noticed that.

Ridge: When did that become relevant?

Eric: Look, we’re in different stages of our life, all right? I don’t wanna hold her back.

Quinn: What does it say? Unless, of course, it’s for your eyes only.

Carter: “Tonight is yours”.

Quinn: I love my husband. What makes this impossible is I love you too.

Think wearing less makeup

means no need for a wipe?

Finn: I won’t lie. It has been surreal. I’ve wondered about my birth mother since I found out I was adopted. What did she look like? What was her personality, which is funny how things turn out because I never would have imagined this.

Paris: Yeah, how could you? Your birth mother turns out to be your wife’s worst nightmare. The woman who terrorized the family you married into.

Finn: The forrester’s all agreed, the best way to safeguard hayes and the family is to keep him away from sheila.

Paris: Do you agree?

Finn: I have to. I can’t take chances with my son’s welfare. On my wedding day, all of a sudden, there she was and I was amazed. I kept thinking, this can’t be happening.

Paris: I bet you were so happy.

Finn: Yeah, I was, but not for long. Talk about crashing back down to earth in a hurry. The forrester’s took one look and all hell broke loose. Nothing’s really been the same since.

Paris: Well, I’m sorry you’re dealing with such a challenging thing right now. But I really do admire you for standing with steffy. You’re an incredible man.

Brooke: I don’t understand, eric. How are you holding quinn back? She knew what she was getting into when she chose to marry an older man.

Ridge: Look, I’m not sure if it came out the way you wanted it to come out.

Brooke: That’s not what I meant. You’re not old, eric. In fact, you’re handsome and sexy.

Eric: There was a time I felt that way.

Ridge: See? That. What is that? You never used to do this, this self-deprecating thing. You’re one of the most confident guys I know.

Brooke: It’s true, what is that? Did quinn take away your confidence? See, this is what I’m talking about. She’s not good for you, eric. She is careless with your feelings.

Eric: No, quite the opposite. Quite the opposite. She’s been more attentive to my feelings lately than she ever has been before.

Brooke: Maybe for now, because you forgave her for her betrayal with carter. But just give her time and she may do something that disappoints you again. All I’m saying, eric, is that you deserve better.

Ridge: Dad, we’re concerned about you.

Eric: Well, you can stop that. Quinn’s not the problem. I am.

Carter: This is crazy. And I’ve made no secret about my feelings and I love you too, but this– this thing between us. It’s crazy.

Quinn: This is insane.

Carter: It’s insane. But it’s undeniable. I respected your decision to go back to your husband.

Quinn: I know.

Carter: And I want you to be happy, I really do. I do, but I can’t deny it, quinn. This connection that we have, this… this thing, quinn. I miss it and I miss you. I miss making love to you, I miss being with you and we kept our distance because we didn’t want to disrespect eric, but he’s pushing it, he’s pushing us. And it wouldn’t be disrespectful now. Would it?

[ Romantic percussive music ]

If you have postmenopausal


Paris: What?

Finn: Just grateful for you. Happy you came into my life.

Paris: Goes both ways.

Finn: Maybe. But I need you more.

Paris: You need me?

Finn: You understand me. Your empathy, it means so much to me during this strange time. Having a safe place to put the feelings I can’t burden steffy with.

Paris: Well you know you can talk to me about anything.

Finn: I do. And I appreciate that more than I can say. There is something so special about you, paris.

Finn: Paris? We’re in the clear. Steffy has hayes under control.

Paris: What?

Finn: No, it’s just– thanks for listening. For being there.

Paris: My pleasure. Any time.

Finn: You’re very special, you know that?

[ Dramatic music ]

Brooke: You’re the problem, not quinn? How could that be true?

Eric: Well it is, believe me.

Brooke: Eric, you keep defending her.

Eric: Somebody has to defend her.

Ridge: I know you’re joking, but you know what, none of this is funny. It’s not funny. We’re trying to protect you.

Brooke: She has proven that she can’t be trusted over and over again. She does something that’s unforgivable and you forgive her. You take her back, things are fine for a while, but then she does something else. I mean, my god, she slept with carter.

Eric: Yes, I’m well aware. I haven’t forgotten that. Look, this conversation is boring me–

Brooke: Eric, eric, we don’t mean to be tiresome. We just love you.

Eric: I know.

Brooke: You deserve to have a woman who gets everything she needs right here with you in your home. And I just don’t think that’s quinn. I mean, for all we know, she’s with somebody else as we speak. Look, I know you were devastated about quinn and carter, I just don’t want to see you hurt like that ever again.

Ridge: Goodnight.

Eric: I’m good.

[ Dramatic music ]

Carter: Eric can’t honestly want you to be with me.

Quinn: He’s not…thinking about it that, carter. He’s thinking about what he thinks I need. And if he thinks this is the only way to give me a life full of passion and desire, then… then he’s willing to do it.

Carter: But are we?

Ridge: Tell me. Tell me what’s going on with you.

Eric: This is a place of business right here. And that’s my personal life. I think it’s been discussed quite enough in this office.

Ridge: Your personal life? What else would it be, dad? We’re family, I’m your son. I’m concerned about you. Yes, it’s personal, of course it is. So, I’m asking you on a personal level. This reunion with quinn… wasn’t all candlelight and fireworks, was it?

Steffy: Oh! What.

Finn: Hm.

Steffy: What was that for?

Finn: It’s the first time we’ve been alone all day.

Steffy: Yeah. You trying to make me forget about your uh… dad joke competition with liam? Wow.

Finn: Nah, that was fun.

Steffy: Yeah, today was fun.

Finn: It was. I love seeing the kids together.

Steffy: I know. Kelly was so proud, showing off her little brother to– to douglas and beth. So cute.

Finn: Well, I think we all have a lot to be proud of today.

Steffy: Mm-hm. This is what hope and I wanted for so long. Just to be a big, blended family. And it didn’t seem possible. But then I met you. What hope said today, about me never been happier… it’s true, I am. It’s because of you.

Finn: The kids are napping. Amelia’s gone. I’m going to take you to the bedroom.

Steffy: I like the sound of that. Steffy: Oh my gosh, we have company. We have com-pa-ny!

Paris: Sorry. I’m sorry.

[ Laughing ]

Steffy: Um…

[ Laughing ]

Eric: You know, I really wish you wouldn’t be so quick to jump on quinn.

Ridge: It’s not what I’m doing. You must know by now I don’t care what happens to quinn. I care what happens to you. And I’m only telling you what I’m seeing. What I’m seeing doesn’t make sense. You wanted her out of your life for very good reason. And now you want her back. And– and no one knows why. No one can talk to you about it. So, something is going on. Am I wrong?

[ Door opening ]

Brooke: Oh, good, you’re both here. These samples just came in and I–uh… you’re in the middle of something.

Ridge: Yeah. I’m trying to convince this guy that I’m concerned about him.

Brooke: We both are, eric.

Eric: Well, I don’t want to be uh–I don’t want to seem ungrateful or unkind, but I would–

Ridge: Here it goes. No, I know what you’re going to say. “You cannot blame quinn for anything, ever.”

Brooke: It’s hard not to. You say that you want a life with her. You say you want her back, and that you’re happy, but you don’t seem happy, eric. In fact, you seem more troubled since you and quinn have reconciled. Why is that?

Quinn: Obviously eric still thinks there’s a connection between us.

Carter: He’s not wrong. But…he doesn’t understand. Quinn, if we do this, if we give into our feelings… it can get very complicated.

[ Sighing ]

[ Door knocking ]

Wyatt: Mom, are you–

Quinn: Hey, sweetheart.

[ Clearing throat ]

Wyatt: Uh…am i interrupting something here?

Carter: Not at all.

Wyatt: Oh, really? So, I should just ignore the fact that you guys literally jumped away from each other?

Frank is a fan of fast.

He’s a fast talker.

Paris: I should have backed up the second I saw you guys. But I’m just no good at sneaking around.

Finn: No, that’s– that’s a good thing. I–I like that in a house guest.

Steffy: Yeah, me, too.

Paris: You guys don’t get to spend much time together, and here I am, interrupting. I’ll go up to my room. I don’t mean to make things awkward, um, but after everything you’ve been through, it’s really great to see you guys like this.

Steffy: Yeah, I agree.

Paris: So that means everything with sheila worked out? You guys don’t have to worry about her anymore?

Ridge: So, everything is good, right? There are no problems? But then answer this, why are you acting this way?

Eric: I’ve asked you time and time again to stop harping on this, to leave it alone. But you won’T. That’s why I’m acting like this. It’s annoying!

Ridge: Ah.

Brooke: Why would you want us to let it go, eric? All we’re doing is expressing our concern.

[ Sighing ]

Brooke: I mean obviously something is wrong. We can see it. Even last night when I talked to you on the phone, I could hear it in your voice.

Ridge: We can see what’s going on, why can’t you? Why can’t you see that we’re here because we love you and we want to support you?

Eric: Quinn and I have been more open to one another recently than we ever have been in our lives together. We’ve been very, very honest with one another.

Ridge: And that’s good. Honesty’s good. You know what else is good? Trust. Companionship.

Brooke: And warmth. And affection.

Ridge: You were talking earlier about challenges that families go through. We’ve had more than most. And when we found our way back to each other, it was magical. It was amazing, we didn’t leave the house for days. We didn’t leave the bedroom and there was things happen that’s– that’S…not important. But I want that for you, dad. And I gotta tell you, this… little reunion with quinn doesn’t seem as joyous to me.

Brooke: You probably wanted things to go back the way they were. But maybe that’s just not possible. And there’s no shame in that. Eric, you’re a man who values honesty. You value integrity. And maybe you just don’t feel that same way now after quinn betrayed you. You know, maybe there’s no love, there’s no passion. It’s gone.

Wyatt: You know, this isn’t the first time I’ve walked in on the two of you.

Quinn: At the office? Where we both work.

Wyatt: It didn’t look like you were exactly crunching numbers here, mom–

Carter: Wyatt, there is nothing going on. If you have to know, we were talking about eric. Your mom’s one hundred percent focused on him, doing whatever it takes to make their marriage last.

Wyatt: Okay, good. I mean you can understand why there’s questions, right? Considering everything that–

Quinn: The only question I’m asking myself is how I can be the best wife to my husband. Look, eric has been very generous with me. He’s willing to give me whatever it takes to make me feel appreciated and– and desired. And– and now I have to make sure that I’m– I’m giving eric everything he needs from me.

If you have postmenopausal


Paris: Um, um–I– I brought up a bad subject.

Steffy: No, no, no, no, it’s–it’s alright. Finn made it clear to sheila that she’s no longer welcome& in his life or hayes’.

Paris: Well, did she accept that? Did she leave?

Finn: We don’t know where she is.

Steffy: We have to keep an eye out. You too, paris. If you hear or see anything, we need to know immediately.

Paris: Absolutely. Uh… I’m–I’m sorry I even brought it up. I know it’s a heavy subject.

Steffy: It’s really important that sheila stays out of our lives. For good this time.

Eric: It’s pretty easy to judge from the outside looking in.

Brooke: Eric, we’re not judging you!

Eric: Yes, you are, brooke. Yes, you are!

Brooke: Please, you don’t have to hide anything from us. Admitting that you made a mistake can be hard. And it can feel like a failure. But it’s not. It’s strong and it’s courageous. But that’s who you are, eric. You’re always trying to do the right thing and putting other people first. But it’s not worth it. It’s not worth sacrificing your own well-being just to honor a commitment.

Eric: This is my marriage. What goes on in my marriage is my business. It’s not yours. Quinn and I know what we’re doing. We’re going to take care of this ourselves. I want this to be the end of it. Excuse me.

[ Door opening and closing ]

Wyatt: Look, I don’t mean to make you defensive.

Carter: You’re concerned about your mom.

Wyatt: I just I know how much my mother loves eric and how great they are together.

Quinn: Okay, I’ve made so many mistakes with eric and I don’t want to make another one, okay? Eric and I are–are… are trying to create a marriage that works for both of us.

Wyatt: Good. I just don’t want you to take that for granted.

Quinn: Believe me, I don’T.

Wyatt: Okay. I’m just saying that it was miraculous… the way he took you back after everything you did to him, giving you another chance. Like, that– that is a very special kind of love.

Quinn: I know, wyatt.

Carter: It’s not if you know eric. The way he reacts to challenges. His first thought is always everyone else. He wants things to be better.

Quinn: Eric is a remarkable man. A man who thinks that a life with me is… worth every sacrifice. He’s willing to do… whatever he thinks I need to feel happy and fulfilled.

Wyatt: And you’re going to give that back to him though, right? I’m just saying. I don’t want you to miss out on this, mom. Whatever eric needs, whatever he asks you to do– just do it. (Susan n) leonard was afraid

Eric: Having a little trouble with this one?

Quinn: Ah, just uh… just a bit distracted. I’ve a lot on my mind.

Eric: I understand.

Quinn: I don’t really think you do. You think you know what I want. But you don’T.

Eric: Remember the day we got married?

[ Scoffing ]

Quinn: How can I forget?

Eric: It was just you and me. You and me and the minister.

Quinn: Yeah, yeah. ‘Cause your family protested and they refused to show up.

Eric: Yeah. They were sure I would call it off. They had no idea how much… I loved you. They had no idea how far I would go to give you what you want. I promised that I would– that I would give you happiness and joy and– and fulfilment in your life. I could still do that. Here.

Quinn: What’s this?

Eric: Sensitive material. It’s–it’s for carter.

Quinn: Carter isn’t here, he went home for the day.

Eric: I know. Take it to him. I’ll see you at home.

[ Sighing ]

Ridge: Dad knows what he wants.

Brooke: Yeah. Maybe I shouldn’t have said anything. I made him feel like he had to defend quinn.

Ridge: I’m sure he felt that way from the moment he met her.

Brooke: I just don’t get it. Eric is so… he’s amazing. He’s generous and thoughtful and giving and…quinn is just the opposite.

Ridge: You’re right, he is thoughtful. So, let’s hope he thought this through.

Quinn: Is that your way of telling me not to worry?

Ridge: Only if you can tell me the same thing.

Brooke: Well, your father is an amazing man. His ability to love is… extraordinary. He’s fearless and boundless. Quinn doesn’t deserve him. No man has ever given her what eric has.

Eric: Look, I told you. My sex life is over. Yours doesn’t have to be.

[ Sighing ]

Carter: Okay.

Quinn: I love you.

Carter: I love you, too.

[ Dramatic music ]

Eric: I know how she feels about me. And I know how she feels about you. I think that we should encourage that. The night is yours if you want. Good morning. We should talk about last night.

Quinn: I would rather talk about you. Do you have any appointments with your doctors coming up?

Eric: Quinn, darling, I’ve been seeing doctors for quite some time now and it hasn’t helped.

Quinn: You can’t give up, eric.

Eric: I’m being realistic. And I think you should be too, about your needs.

Ridge: I know that look. You’re thinking about her, aren’t you?

Carter: Her?

Ridge: Zoe. She’s killing it over there in paris. You saw this, right?

Carter: Yeah. I did see it and I’m happy for her. I wish zoe all the best.

Ridge: Any regrets?

Carter: Yeah. Yeah, I have regrets. About a lot of things.

Steffy: I’m so glad we’re finally doing this.

Finn: A beach day with the whole gang? What could be better?

Liam: Yeah, I’m not so sure amelia would sign off on that. I think she’s got her hands full with douglas, beth and kelly. Although, that is a sweet sandcastle.

Finn: Castles. You hear that, little man? You ready to go join the fun?

Steffy: You think he needs a diaper change first?

Liam: Who are we talking about here, hayes or finn?

Hope: Oh my gosh.

Finn: And they say I tell the lame jokes.

Steffy: Well, you both do.

[ Laughing ]

Steffy: Let’s hope that doesn’t rub off on you because we only need one comedian in the house.

Liam: Just one. Just one.

Hope: He’s so cute. Liam and I, we’re so happy for your family. Right little guy? Yeah.

Finn: Nothing better than being a new dad.

Steffy: Unless it’s being a new mom.

Hope: Mmm. Yeah. I think I could have 20 more.

Liam: What? What? A little ambitious, don’t you think?

Finn: Whoa, okay, yes. I think you’re mom is right.

Steffy: Told you.

Finn: Let’s get you cleaned up, you little stinker. Let’s make this quick.

[ Laughing ]

Hope: It really is wonderful seeing you so happy and at peace.

Ridge: Many regrets. Wanna explain that?

Carter: What’s to explain, ridge? We all have regrets, right? About something.

Ridge: Or someone?

Carter: Is there a reason you needed to see me?

Ridge: Yeah, um, wanted to see if you had talked to dad, see if he has a proposition for you. What–what are you doing? What is this? What’s going on with you?

Quinn: Can I get you something for breakfast? Would you like pancakes or french toast? What’s your pleasure?

Eric: I’m looking at her. Except I can’t be the husband that she deserves.

Quinn: Stop saying that, okay? You’re everything I need.

Eric: Not everything. I can’t be your lover.

Quinn: Eric, that will change.

Eric: No, we both know it won’T. All right, look, I’ll say it one more time. And then I’ll drop it. Your sex life does not have to be over just because mine is. I’m going into the office. I’ll see you there later. I love you, quinn.

Quinn: I love you, too. In this ad pay attention to the actor’s gums.

Hope: Sunscreen. Is there anything else that we are missing?

Finn: I can’t believe it. Hayes, he passed out right on the changing table. He’s out cold.

Hope: That’s fine. We can chill here for a bit.

Liam: Works for me. I’m out of breath anyway.

Finn: Okay, what do you guys wanna talk about? Do you wanna swap baby stories? We’ve got a ton of them.

Steffy: You can tell he’s a proud papa.

Finn: And very happy husband.

Hope: Aw, that’s so great. And you deserve it, especially after…

Finn: Uh, no, it’s okay. You can say it. Especially after what happened at the wedding reception. And since… I won’t lie. Steffy and I, we’ve had our challenges these past few weeks, but don’t all marriages?

Steffy: Yeah, but nothing really compares to the challenges sheila presents.

Liam: Presents? Like presents currently? I thought she left town.

Steffy: Uh, yeah, so did we. But she, um, she came back. And then she “collapsed” when she didn’t get what she wanted. Yeah, I think it was just a desperate ploy to attach herself to finn and hayes, but it didn’t work, did it?

Eric: There’s a welcome sight.

[ Chuckling ]

Ridge: About to say the same. You finally got here, huh?

Eric: I can come in here any time I like. This is my building. My desk. My drawing table. Everything’s mine here.

Ridge: Yeah, they’re your pens. What are you, five? Yes, this is all yours. Also, this is yours and it needs your signature, so whenever you have a moment.

Eric: Put that on my desk.

Ridge: Wow.

Eric: I see you’re busy at it yourself this morning.

Ridge: Yeah, no, I got here on time, started working and got some things done. Yeah, that’s what I did.

Eric: Good.

Ridge: And, um, I talked to carter… about this proposal. I’m not sure, dad. It, uh, sounds a little strange to me. And I feel it’s a big price to pay.

Eric: Oh, you mean–

Ridge: No, like you said, it’s your shop, it’s all good and in the end–

Eric: No, no, you’re talking about the berlin boutique acquisition, right?

Ridge: What else would I be talking about?

Eric: So what about it?

Ridge: What is wrong with you today? Why are you so fuzzy and weird? You just tired from reconnecting with quinn last night and this morning?

Eric: You know what, I am determined to give quinn the life that she… that she deserves.

Eric: I know how the two of you feel about each other. I do. I think that we should encourage that.

Quinn: Encourage it?

Carter: I miss you so much. I miss every inch of you. I miss kissing you, I miss touching you. I miss making love to you. I think about you all the time.

Quinn: Carter. I had to see you. We need to talk about what happened last night. On the outside, I looked fine.

Finn: And I have to admit to being conflicted. For years, I imagined what it would be like to meet my birth mother. Just– the thing is, I never imagined it being someone like sheila.

Liam: Yeah, so how did you end things with her?

Hope: Yeah, is she still in the hospital?

Steffy: No, no. The doctors ran tests but they couldn’t find anything. I’m not surprised.

Liam: So she’s discharged.

Steffy: Yeah, but finn made it very to clear to her she couldn’t be in his life of hayes’.

Finn: Couldn’t have sheila continuing to disrupt my family, no matter how much she claims she loves and cares about me.

Hope: Well, do you think she will actually stay away?

Steffy: I know what you’re thinking. You’re worried about kelly.

Liam: Yes, I’ve mentioned that before but I also realize it’s finn and hayes sheila’s obsessed with, right? I just wouldn’t want kelly around that–

Steffy: Everything’s gonna be fine. Nothing’s gonna happen to her.

Liam: Okay, yeah.

Steffy: Finn and I will see to that.

Hope: Also, just so you know, the kids are always, always welcome to stay with us until you feel totally comfortable and sure that sheila will stay away.

Steffy: I’m not certain we could ever be absolutely sure, you know, given sheila’s track record. If she senses weakness, she’s gonna take advantage. That’s why finn had to put his foot down. Leave no doubt in sheila’s mind that this is the end of the road.

Liam: Hey, sounds like you didn’t mince words.

Steffy: I’m just gonna make sure sheila does not come near me or my family ever again.

Ridge: Well, that’s nothing new, is it? Same, same story over and over again. What do you wanna do for quinn? You want her to be happy, give her the life she deserves. Whatever. What about you? What about your happiness? Are you happy that she’s back?

Eric: Why wouldn’t i be happy, ridge?

Ridge: I don’t know. No, I do know. Because five minutes ago– no, two minutes ago, you were upset that your wife had an affair with somebody else and you wanted her gone and now, she’s back. No explanation. She’s back.

Eric: Ridge, I have explained it. I’ve explained it to you and brooke over and over again.

Ridge: I know you think that, but dad, all you did was tell us that quinn is back. You put that ugly portrait back over the fireplace and there she was at the dinner table. That’s all you did. Dad, I don’t wanna fight with you. We love you. Everybody loves you. I want you to be happy and healthy and I want you to have a partner that is there for you, that doesn’t disappoint you or betray you.

Eric: I don’t wanna go there again with you. I don’t wanna do this.

Ridge: I have questions. You need to help me. I know what happened in your marriage. I know. And I don’t understand what happened after that. And you’re reluctant to talk about it. So this is it? This is what you want? You want that woman in your life for the rest of your life?

Eric: This woman would not be in my life right now if that’s not what I wanted.

Ridge: This woman that you want in your life so badly had an affair with someone. Have you forgotten about their little relationship?

Eric: No, I have not. I’ve not forgotten about the relationship she had with carter. I haven’t and I won’T.

Quinn: I know we agreed that we wouldn’t talk about what happened or what didn’t happen, but eric’s attitude hasn’t changed.

Carter: You talked to him about it?

Quinn: Yes, of course. I talked to him about it last night after you left. I went upstairs, he wasn’t asleep. He wanted to know whether we, you know, did it and I said no. We didn’T. We couldn’T.

Carter: How’d he react?

Quinn: I couldn’t tell whether he was relieved or not. Doesn’t your family deserve the best?

Finn: Okay. Let’s put a moratorium on all things sheila. At least for now. Drop the topic. Today’s supposed to be about our families, right? Having a good day at the beach?

Steffy: Yes. And once hayes wakes up, we’re going to kick everything into high gear.

Hope: All right, sounds like a plan.

Liam: Yeah, for sure. Actually, before that happens, can I just say one thing? I just really admire the way that you guys have been handling this. Obviously, it’s really stressful. Obviously, it’s not the kind of thing you wanna be dealing with the first, what, three weeks of marriage. But what’s obvious is how you guys have come through on the other side of this, right, which is stronger and more in love than ever. And I think what that says is that this thing that you two have with each other is more powerful that any adversity that you’re gonna face and that includes sheila. And sorry, I didn’t wanna make a whole speech. I just wanted to say that.

Finn: I couldn’t have said it better. If it wasn’t for this remarkable woman, this amazing wife and mother. Steffy’s my rock, my family’s rock. She’s fearless and fierce and… I’ve never loved anyone the way I love her.

Ridge: Put that down for a second please. If you haven’t forgotten about quinn and carter, how can you have that woman back in your house? Back in your bed?

Eric: Ridge, ridge… I’ve tried to explain this to you and brooke. Look, it’S… it’s complicated. It’s very complicated. There’s a lot you don’t know. There’s a lot you don’t understand.

Ridge: I know there is. Explain it to me. What is it? Is quinn holding something over you?

Eric: No. No, no, of course not.

Ridge: Dad… I love you so much. If there’s something going on, if you want to open up to anyone, let it be me. Is there something I should know?

Carter: We need to figure this out.

Quinn: It’s all I’ve been thinking about since last night.

Carter: Yeah, me too. For eric to suggest this–

Quinn: Oh, come on. It’s more than suggesting. He wants you and me to be together because he can’T.

Carter: Because he loves you so damn much.

Quinn: This whole thing has me so conflicted and confused.

Carter: Me too.

Quinn: Eric doesn’t want me to live a life without passion and desire. He knows how much that physical connection is important to me. But I told him I would forego all of that just, you know, to be with him, to be his wife because it’s enough. And it is.

Carter: Is it?

Quinn: I don’t know. I don’t know. I mean, I keep telling myself that it is. Carter, I mean, I can be honest with you. What we shared, what eric is giving us permission to do, we can’t possibly do what my husband is asking… can we?

Quinn: I don’t know what to say… it wasn’t my place to share with you that eric’S… struggling with E.D., But… he can’t possibly mean this–

Carter: No, he’s not thinking straight, quinn. He can’t be. I mean, you’re his wife and I’m sorry he’s lost his ability to be intimate. But to make this request and then go up upstairs to sleep?

Quinn: Wait, wait, we both heard exactly what he said, right? He–he loves me so much he doesn’t want me to lose this aspect of my life. He still wants to be my husband, but he wants you and me to–

Carter: Be together tonight.

Brooke: Eric is such a sensitive and caring man.

Donna: He’s wonderful. He deserves nothing but the very best.

Katie: The last few times I’ve been around, I mean– he just doesn’t seem like himself.

Brooke: That’s because of quinn and the stress that she puts on him.

Katie: He’s puts on a smile for everyone else but I would like to see him actually happy.

Donna: He claims that he’s happy with quinn.

Katie: Well, how can he be after all that betrayal?

Brooke: He needs a good woman. A wife who can be committed and faithful to him.

Katie: How many more chances is eric going to give quinn?

Donna: He must still have faith that somehow they can work through their differences.

Brooke: Arguing over finances or where to go for dinner, that’s one thing. But trying to earn trust back– that’s completely different.

Katie: I just can’t believe he took her back after her affair with carter.

Donna: He is a lot more forgiving than I could ever be.

Brooke: He cuts her way too much slack, that’s for sure.

Katie: I just, I feel bad for him. I mean, clearly he’s doing everything he can to make things work.

Brooke: Yeah, but I mean to what extent? Quinn’s just going to keep taking and taking and taking!

Donna: I hope she appreciates how kind and understanding he’s been through this.

Katie: Oh. Quinn’s never satisfied with what she has. She always wants more.

Brooke: I really thought he lost it with her.

Donna: I guess he’s just trying to salvage whatever they have left.

Brooke: But is that really reasonable? What more could he possibly do to make quinn happy?

Eric: I know how she feels about me. And I know how she feels about you. I think that we should encourage that.

Quinn: Encourage it?

Eric: My sex life is over. Yours doesn’t have to be. The night is yours if you want it.

Quinn: I can’t believe what eric is suggesting we do.

Carter: Yeah, when I got his text to come over tonight, this is–

[ Chuckling ] Not what I imagined.

Brooke: Carter, you’ve been put in the most awkward position, I’m so sorry.

Carter: It seems like he’s coming from a good place though, right? Like, this isn’t a test to measure our loyalty?

Quinn: No, no, no, it’s not that. I–& I think he really means it. He’s willing to make this sacrifice for me, for our marriage. Must have been a really… difficult decision for him to make.

Carter: Yeah. It proves how much he loves you. He said tonight’S…ours.

[ Quinn sighing ]

From the very first touch,

Katie: I’m sure eric appreciates the companionship, but how many times has he had to explain quinn’s behavior or apologize for her actions?

Donna: The list is a mile long.

Katie: It’s endless. And it keeps getting worse and worse. I mean, it’s bad enough that she’s turned her back on her wedding vows. But what’s next? I mean where’s the breaking point?

Brooke: That’s right. That’s what I keep saying. I mean, why should eric be stuck in this cold, dysfunctional marriage?

Donna: Sis, what are you doin’?

Brooke: I… am calling eric.

[ Phone ringing ]

Eric: Brooke.

Brooke: Hi, eric. I hope I’m not calling too late.

Eric: No, no, no. It’s all right. Is everything– is everything okay?

Brooke: I hope so. I’m here with donna and katie. We’re on speaker phone.

Eric: Wow, you are. Well hello, ladies.

Donna: Hi, eric–

Katie: How’s it goin’?

Brooke: We just wanted to tell you that we were thinking about you and thinking about all those years gone by–great memories.

Donna: So many, so many wonderful memories.

Eric: We’ve all been very lucky.

Brooke: Look, I’m going to get straight to the point here. Um… you know we’re not fans of your wife.

Eric: Is that right? Yeah, I wasn’t aware of that. Is that true?

Brooke: And we were wondering why you took quinn back after she had that affair with carter.

Eric: Look, I’d rather not talk about all that right now. All right? I’m just off to bed. So…

Brooke: Oh eric, I’m– I’m sorry. I don’t mean to just dump this on you, it’s just– we want to remind you that you’re an amazing, loving and giving man.

Donna: Eric, it’s true. You–you’re one in a million. You know? Special in every way.

Brooke: And don’t you forget it.

Donna: Any woman should be thanking her lucky stars to be with you.

Katie: I agree with my sisters. I don’t want you to ever change. I don’t want you to lose sight of what’s important because you are perfect just the way you are.

Donna: All we’ve ever wanted for you is your happiness.

Brooke: And we’re not sure that quinn can give that to you. We just don’t want you to be stuck in an unaffectionate, loveless marriage.

Eric: Listen, ladies. I’m convinced that I’m not going to live in a passionless, empty marriage. I’m going to be fine. I appreciate your care and your concern for me, I really do, but uh, I’m going to go to bed. Thanks very much, bye.

Brooke: I hope that was okay.

Katie: It was sweet of you to reach out.

Donna: He did sound a little down though. You know, like–I don’t know, he’s like feeling alone.

Quinn: He’s proven it to me over and over again. He let me back in this house. He finally opened up about all of his private struggles. But how can he possibly think that this is the solution? That–that allowing you and me to–

[ Whispering ] I can’T.

Carter: Yeah, I feel the same way. As much as I want… I respect eric too much and I already feel bad for betraying him. Even with his blessing this still feels…

Quinn: I know. I know exactly what you’re saying. I mean, what eric is suggesting– he must really feel like this is the only way to save our marriage– you giving me what he can’T. I–I mean, look. On one level, it’s–it’s very loving, it’s very selfless, right? But we can’T. It’s wrong on every other level, it is wrong.

Carter: I don’t disagree. We’re not doing this.

Quinn: No.

Carter: We can’T. And it kills me quinn, it kills me because I miss you so much. I miss every inch of you. I miss kissing you, I miss touching you, I miss making love to you. I think about you all the time.

Psst! Psst!

Quinn: I miss you too, carter. The time we spent together, it was… it was incredible. But it was also terribly wrong. It was betrayal to eric.

Carter: I can’t go back there.

Quinn: No. No, we can’t do what he is suggesting.

Carter: We wouldn’t be able to stop ourselves. I’m going home.

Quinn: Yeah, that is– it’s for the best.

[ Exhales ] Please… I don’t ever want to talk about this ever again. Okay. You should go. Um… I need to go upstairs and lord only knows what eric is thinking all alone in our bedroom.

Carter: You’re an amazing woman, quinn. Eric is lucky to have you in his life.

Quinn: You’re an amazing man. Carter, you’re incredible in every way. Goodnight.

[ Sobbing ]

Brooke: Did eric seem uncomfortable to you?

Donna: He knows you mean well. He knows you just called because you’re worried about him.

Brooke: I’m sure he’s sick of hearing it from me.

Katie: You care about him. You’re trying to protect him. You don’t want to see him getting hurt again.

Donna: And I’m sure he appreciates the support.

Brooke: Yeah, I should probably just let it go.

Katie: It was harmless. You gave him a little pep talk. We let him know that we’re thinking about him.

Donna: I bet he wasn’t expecting a late-night conference from the three of us.

Katie: Well, at least we didn’t video call at him.

[ Laughing ]

Brooke: If we did, quinn would’ve grabbed that phone out right of his hand.

Donna: And I’m sure that’s part of the reason why he, you know, was distant. He’s probably not in bed by himself.

Brooke: Yeah…

Eric: Quinn.

Quinn: Sorry. I didn’t know if you were asleep yet.

Eric: No, I haven’t fallen asleep yet. I’m just… I’m just sitting here like A…

Quinn: No. Lactaid is 100% real milk, just without the lactose.

Katie: Okay, who else are we going to call next? Who’s night are we going to make?

Donna: Oh, it’s been a while since we’ve done some prank phone calls.

Brooke: Aren’t we too old for that?

Katie: Never, never too old for anything.

Brooke: Aren’t most people in bed by now?

Katie: How about… -johnny leventino?

Donna: Oh my–

Brooke: Wait, isn’t that the guy that you had a crush on in grade school?

Katie: Hey, I saw a picture of him. He still has all his hair.

Donna: I haven’t thought about him in years.

Katie: Well, maybe he’s single. Ready to mingle.

Donna: Oh no– okay. All right. Worth a shot.

[ Laughing ]

Brooke: Okay, okay. You girls stay here and have your fun. I’m going to go home to my hot, sexy husband.

Katie: Okay, fine. Say hello to your hot– I mean, husband from your single sister,

Brooke: Honey, you’ll find romance again some day. I’m sure there’s that special man out there for you. Oh, come on.

Donna: Who am I kidding? There is only one man for me. The true love of my life. It’s eric forrester.

[ Crying ]

Brooke: Oh…

> Quinn: You’re an amazing man. The time we spent together was… it was incredible. Carter, you’re incredible in every way.

Eric: You look beautiful, quinn.

Quinn: Thanks. It’s new.

Eric: I’m talking about you. You’re an exquisite woman, quinn.

Quinn: You’re sweet. Always makin’ me feel good.

Eric: What are you thinking about?

Quinn: I’m trying to process everything that happened, right? Didn’t happen. Look, I know you love me, eric. But what you did tonight…

Eric: You’re like a wonderful, exquisite work of art, you know that? But spirited, full of energy. Passionate and excited. There’s a passion I can not fulfill, you know that.

Quinn: Yes, you can.

Eric: I can’T. We both know that. We’ve gone through this before. It’s a passion that needs to be fulfilled and I can’t fill it. But carter can.

Quinn: I have everything I need, right here. You’re enough. You’re more than enough, eric. Good night.

[ Dramatic music ]

Quinn: Eric, what are you– what are you saying?

Eric: That I love you. I love you so deeply. I planned this night for you.

Carter: Okay, you obviously have big plans for quinn, so I’mma get out of the way–

Eric: No, no. You don’t leave. You stay here, please. Stay. You’re right. I do have plans for my wife for tonight. A surprise. And I want you to be a part of it.

Brooke: This is delicious.

Katie: Oh, I know. Isn’t it though?

Donna: Thank you for suggesting this.

Katie: Well thank you for not killing me for wanting to do takeout. I just couldn’t miss that call to tokyo.

Brooke: We understand. Just so we could sit down and share a meal together. No matter the location.

Donna: Seems like it’s been a long time since we’ve done this.

Katie: Yeah, it’s been way too long.

Brooke: We’ve all been so busy. Lots going on.

Donna: No, you two have. Not me. My life is pretty uneventful these days. The most excitement I’m getting is taking beth and douglas to get ice cream. Yeah, I actually look forward to finding out what the flavor of the month is. Mm-hmm. That’s how boring I’ve become.

[ Laughing ]

Brooke: I remember when you used to talk about the flavors of the month and you always referring to men.

Donna: Brooke, I mean, come on.

Brooke: It’s true. Maybe that’s what you need to spice up your life a little bit. A new man. So is there anybody you have your eye on?

Liam: Sir.

Wyatt: Thank you. Gotta say, it’s good seeing you like this.

Liam: Yeah, thank you. Wait, like what?

Wyatt: You know, not in a jumpsuit.

Liam: Ah, yeah. Not gonna miss that.

Wyatt: I mean, it was a good color on you.

Liam: It was a good color. I thought it was a good color. Hope threw out all my blue shirts, except for this one. We had to arm wrestle over it. This is marriage. This is–

Wyatt: I’m not surprised. God, she’s gotta be relieved.

Liam: You have no idea.

Wyatt: Well look, now I don’t have to worry about you or dad. Or even my mom, for that matter. Just seems like everyone is right where they belong.

Liam: I mean, yeah, I heard about that. So, your mom and eric are back together.

Wyatt: Yeah. You sound surprised.

Liam: No–I just. Well, maybe. Listen, if it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be. Right?

Wyatt: Okay, now you sound skeptical. Why?

Liam: I’m not skeptical, it’s just– okay, maybe a little bit. He was about to throw her out, right? Like they were gonna sign divorce papers and now everything’s totally fine. And I think we’re all a little–a little skeptical.

Katie: I don’t think she’s talking about a new man.

Brooke: Somebody you’ve had your eye on for a while?

Donna: Well, you know, it’s not like somebody I’m actively pursuing or anything, but I’d give it another go.

Brooke: I know you have a history with justin, but you know what he did to bill.

Katie: Oh, I don’t think she’s talking about justin but you might be on the right track when it comes to ex-husbands.

Brooke: Oh, you’re talking about eric.

Donna: The one man I should have never let get away.

Carter: You want me to stay?

Eric: Yes. Yes, I do.

Carter: But you have such a lovely evening planned, just the two of you.

Eric: We did. And we had a wonderful evening. Absolutely. It was wonderful. It was very romantic with my lovely quinn. But now I think my evening’s over.

Quinn: It is?

Eric: Yeah. But I don’t think it’s over for my wife yet. I think this evening has just begun for her. I’ve lost count of how many asthma attacks I’ve had.

Katie: I can understand why part of you has never been able to let eric go.

Donna: But I have. I mean, you know, for the most part. It’s not like I’m pining away for him or anything.

Brooke: How many dates have you been on recently?

Donna: Recently as in–

Katie: As in the last month?

Donna: I mean, I don’t– look, I said my life has been pretty boring lately.

Katie: Okay. How many dates have you been on in the last year?

Donna: I don’t know. Look, guys, it’s not like I go on those apps anymore. It’s just–so disappointing, you know? I mean nobody ever comes close.

Brooke: To eric.

Donna: Yeah. I don’t know. I guess I was just spoiled. You know, like–

[ Sighing ] He always just made me feel so important. So wanted. So desired.

[ Sighing ] You know, my honey bear couldn’t get enough of me.

Brooke: Yeah, it’s true. I’ll never believe eric can feel for quinn what he felt for you.

Donna: That’s sweet of you to say.

Brooke: Well, you lit a fire under him. You did. And with her, I don’t see a fire, do you?

Katie: With eric and quinn? I don’t even see smoke.

[ Chuckling ]

Liam: You know, I’m not trying to diss your mom.

Wyatt: No. Look, I get it, alright? My mother has made some very interesting choices in her life and well, she’s lucky that eric has been so forgiving.

Liam: Yeah, she is. She is. I gotta say, it was pretty bad, even for quinn though, you know, hooking up with carter.

Wyatt: I know. I know. It’s ridge’s best friend. The person that eric trusts the most at forrester. It’s just–my mom is so often her own worst enemy.

Liam: But, listen. I–I thought it was over. Right? I thought eric would just walk away and look where we are.

Wyatt: Yeah, people have been doubting their relationship for years. I mean, hell, I’m guilty of that too. But this, I think it finally proves, you know, eric forgiving my mom, it shows how deep his feelings run for her and how important that relationship is for him. I think eric could do just about anything for my mom.

Quinn: I–I’m so confused. I thought you were having as much fun tonight as I was.

Eric: I was. There’s nobody in the world I’d rather spend time with than you.

Quinn: Except for carter because you invited him to join us. Why? Why are you being so mysterious?

Eric: I don’t mean to be mysterious. It’s not a game to me at all. This is a very serious matter.

Quinn: What is?

Eric: Your needs.

Quinn: My needs?

Eric: Your needs that I can’t fulfill.

Quinn: Eric, I told you. You fulfill me.

Eric: I do. I know. In so many ways. And I’m grateful for that. But there are ways that I can’t fulfill you. And that’s what I’m talking about. I can’t ask you to sacrifice that part of your life. I can be your loving husband. I can be an attentive partner to you, but at the same time, I can’t– I don’t have to spell it out for you, do I? I know how the two of you feel about each other. I do. I know there’s no need for us to hide that. I’m totally aware of it. I think that we should encourage that.

Quinn: Encourage it?

Eric: Look, I told you… my sex life is over. Yours doesn’t have to be. Does your vitamin c last twenty-four hours?

Brooke: I really thought eric would be rid of quinn, once and for all. Especially after this thing with carter.

Katie: I thought his eyes had been opened there for a while.

Brooke: He’s just too forgiving.

Donna: I think it’s just because he’s so loyal. To a fault. I mean how else would you explain these relationships? I know I’m the one who messed up ours. And believe me, I would never ever again, given the chance.

Brooke: Oh, so there might be a chance? Does he know that this could be an option?

Donna: Oh, no, no, no please. Don’t even go there. I am not throwing myself at a married man.

Katie: Even though everyone knows that you would be better for him?

Donna: I–I respect his choices. His commitment.

Brooke: Honey, I am not asking you to sabotage his marriage. Quinn will do that all on her own. I’m just saying, let eric know that you’ll be there for him if and when she does.

Liam: Hey, listen, maybe I’m wrong to be skeptical, because clearly eric has shown how much he cares about her and even if it was surprising that he took her back. There was no doubt that he loves her.

Wyatt: There’s no doubt at all. And it goes both ways too. Mom loves him. She feels terrible about what she did. The last thing she wants to do is hurt eric.

Liam: Right, but that does raise the question, why would she put her marriage in jeopardy in the first place?

Wyatt: I don’t know. I mean, I’m not sure of all the details, nor do I want to know them but to my understanding, she was a bit starved, shall we say, when it came to affection.

[ Clears throat ] Issues in the bedroom.

Liam: Oh, right. Okay, yikes.

Wyatt: Look, eric got really ticked off that my mom was trying to break up ridge and brooke and I think it just made him lose interest. Thankfully, that’s all behind them now, all right? Or, at least, I hope so.

Eric: Look, this isn’t easy. I wanna do what’s best. I wanna do what’s best.

Quinn: Look, you wanna have a discussion about what’s best for me? Fine. Let’s do it. But alone, without carter present.

Carter: Agreed. You two should talk.

Eric: No, you don’t go anywhere. Not until you hear me out.

Quinn: No. There is nothing else to be heard here. This is not happening. I’m not gonna jump in bed with another man because you aren’t able to–

Eric: This man. This man. This man you turned to when I wasn’t able to–

Quinn: Okay, but we almost got a divorce over that, remember?

Eric: I’m doing the best I can. I don’t like this. I don’t like that I can’t fulfill you.

Quinn: Eric.

Eric: I can’t do the things for you that a younger man can. This man.

Brooke: Honestly, I’m not rooting for that marriage to end.

Katie: Yes you are.

Brooke: I’m not. Not if he truly wants to be with quinn. Do I want him with quinn? No. Absolutely not. But eric feels differently.

Katie: I guess if we don’t see the fire and passion, eric does and that’s all that matters. I just hope quinn realizes how lucky she is because I don’t think there’s another man out there that would have such a forgiving heart. Or such an enormous capacity to love.

Liam: Alright, so, you know, carter’s just coming off a difficult breakup, your mom is not feeling very…attended to.

Wyatt: Yes, yes.

Liam: Listen, I’m just saying it’s a little easier to understand why they did what they did.

Wyatt: I know– and I’m not trying to justify what they did. But yeah, they– they started confiding in each other and spending time together and connecting.

Liam: You and I both know you can’t just turn that off.

Wyatt: I know. But they have to. They have to because eric has taken her back. He’s forgiven them both. And all of them work at forrester together. It’s complicated. I don’t know. I don’t know how they did it, but it does seem like they have figured out a way, the three of them, to just make the relationship work.

Carter: Eric, to even suggest this, it shows how deeply you love quinn. I respect you so much now. And I feel for you. That being said, you can’t just decide that quinn and I should sleep together. You’re my boss and I take orders from you at the office but in life, I’m my own man. And I’m not going to fall in bed with quinn because you deemed it’s okay. Now I get it. I get that you’re frustrated and I would be too if I was in your shoes but it is wrong to ask me to be some sort of– some stand-in for you.

Eric: I don’t think so. Not given how you two feel about each other.

Quinn: Okay, hey. I know– I know you mean well. You’re trying to do what you think is right for me but… we’re married.

Eric: We were married when you turned to carter in the first place. It doesn’t need to be behind my back anymore. I want there to be some approval here.

Quinn: It’s approval for something that we’re not even asking for. I’m committed to you. I am committed to our marriage. I– I told you that you’re not alone in this. I am going to stay by your side.

Eric: Thank god. I want you to. I want that more than anything. But I don’t want you to have to give up anything to do that. I don’t want you to make that kind of a sacrifice.

Quinn: I don’t feel like it’s a sacrifice. I’m willing to give it up.

Eric: I don’t want you to.

Quinn: For you! I’m willing to give up anything to be with you.

Eric: I don’t want you to give up anything. I don’t want you to. I don’t want you to give up how sensual you are, how sexual you are. I don’t want you to have to give that up. How long have we been married? And I have benefited so much from your sensuality. It’s what drew me into you in the first place. But things have changed. They have. If you were my age, if you were closer to my age, maybe they wouldn’t have changed so much. Maybe I wouldn’t feel like I was robbing you of anything.

Quinn: Come on, you knew what our age difference was when we got together in the first place.

Eric: Well, I was able to keep up with you, wasn’t I? But not anymore. Not anymore. I know how she feels about me. And I know how she feels about you. We’re all adults here. It’s okay. The night is yours if you want it.

[ Dramatic music ]

Sheila: You’re my son. We have the same dna. The same blood running through our veins…

Steffy: Don’t listen to her!

Sheila: We are connected forever. I feel it in my heart, in my very soul and I know that you do, too.

Steffy: Finn. Finn, please just–just look at me. She’s manipulating you! All we have to do is just walk out of the room and never see her again.

Sheila: Why don’t you ever let finn make his own decisions? Son, I’m begging you. Please don’t turn your back on me. I love you. Just let me be a part of your life.

Quinn: Mm… mm, mm, mm. Well, you never cease to amaze me. This is such a romantic surprise.

Eric: I think there’s one surprise you could’ve done without, isn’t there?

Quinn: Oh, c’mon. Haven’t you heard? Sex is overrated.

Eric: If only.

Quinn: No, c’mon honey. You’ll see. This too shall pass. And I refuse to believe that this E.D. Is permanent. And who knows, maybe tonight is the night that changes everything.

Eric: I’m counting on that.

Ridge: Oh boy. Once again, I’m overdressed. What’re we doin’?

Carter: I spilled coffee all over myself so I’m changing my clothes.

Ridge: Coffee, huh?

Carter: I reached out to the judge about moving up that hearing date for sheila’s restraining order. Waiting to hear back from her.

Ridge: Well, anything you can do is appreciated. Thank you.

Carter: Yeah, I know you’re worried about steffy. I’ll convey the urgency.

Ridge: I am worried. Got sheila running around with some kind of… biological claim on her family. I’m also a little worried about my dad.

Ridge: I’m trying to get used to the idea that my dad forgave quinn and took her back.

Carter: I was caught off guard, too. But I’m guessing no one’s more surprised than quinn, right?

Ridge: She should be surprised after what she did…

Carter: Look, I genuinely want what’s best for those two. Eric and quinn love each other deeply. They belong together.

Eric: A dance, my love?

Quinn: Ooh.

Eric: Right this way.

[ Romantic music ] Now you spin.

[ Quinn laughing ]

[ Quinn moaning ]

Quinn: Is everything okay?

Eric: What could be wrong? Dancing here with my beautiful wife. And make no mistake, your beauty is incomparable.

[ Quinn scoffing ]

Steffy: I get why this is hard for you! Sheila is your birth mother and you don’t want to shut her out. But you have another family, another family who needs to be protected from her!

Sheila: I am not a threat! Not to steffy! Not to the kids! I just want to know my son and my grandson!

Dr. Griffith: Everything all right in here?

Finn: Uh yeah, it’s under control, dr. Griffith. Do you have the results?

Dr. Griffith: Your tests and blood work came back normal. No dehydration. Good news, ms. Carter. You appear to be fine. I’ll have the nurse get your discharge started.

Sheila: Thank you, doctor.

[ Steffy laughing ]

Steffy: You see? She’s fine! There was nothing wrong with her to begin with! Sheila played you, finn. Oh, she played you. Some people have joint pain,

Carter: So, you don’t buy it? You don’t believe that eric and quinn love each other?

Ridge: After everything that went down, no. I’m not buying any of it.

Carter: But see, that’s it. That’s how the whole thing went down. Look, I was messed up after zoe, quinn was reeling from eric’s rejection, ridge. That’s how this happened. That was the perfect storm.

Ridge: Hey, why don’t we do this. Why don’t we see what happens tonight. Dad has planned something special for her. He’s a master of romance. So, we’ll see. Hey, I learned from him believe it or not.

Carter: Did you learn from him?

Ridge: Yeah.

Carter: Hm.

Ridge: Let’s get on with your night. Keep your shirt on.

Carter: I’ll try.

[ Phone ding ]

Eric: Sorry to leave you even for a moment. Something I had to take care of.

Quinn: No problem.

Eric: You admiring your portrait, are ya?

Well, I can’t help it.

Eric: No reason you should have to. I know how significant it is to you.

Quinn: Every time I look at that portrait, it just– it reminds me of how far I’ve come. I mean, I am married to mr. Eric forrester. I get to call this beautiful mansion my home. My jewelry line is successful beyond my wildest dreams, and… it’s all because of you. ‘Cause you love me. ‘Cause you opened your heart to me. I know you’re going through a really challenging time right now, but you know you’re not alone. I’m your wife. And I will always be right here, by your side.

Eric: My beautiful quinn.

Quinn: I love you… with every ounce of my being. And there is not one challenge out there that we can’t face together.

Eric: When you say it, I believe it.

Quinn: Yeah! You should believe it. You should. Eric, I know I’ve hurt you in the past, I have let you down. That’s never gonna happen again. My commitment to you is 1000%

Eric: I know that now, more than ever.

[ Quinn moaning ]

Sheila: I just, I wish there were something that I could say or do that would put a dent- in this hostility that you’re directing towards me.

Steffy: You can make it go away altogether. Leave and never come back.

Finn: Steffy.

Steffy: She’s a liar. This whole collapse– it was–it was a hoax. You realize that?

Finn: I don’t want to argue about that right now. I’m just glad that sheila’s okay.

Sheila: You know, your concern means a lot to me. It shows me that you do care about what happens to me.

Finn: I realize I owe you both an answer… from earlier. There’s only one thing I can do. Only one decision I can make.

Hey look at this!

Finn: I don’t know if your collapse was real or if you faked it. I mean, I certainly hope you didn’T. I’m glad you’re okay.

Sheila: You’re a compassionate man and I am so proud to call you my son.

Finn: When you told me you were my birth mother, I’d never been more shocked, or unprepared. I’ve wondered about you since dad and li told me I was adopted. What was your name? Did I look like you? Why couldn’t you keep me? I had so many questions that I never thought would be explained to me and then suddenly, there you were. Telling me things that I wanted to know. You gave me up so I would have chances in life that you weren’t equipped to give me. It was overwhelming, to say the least. You’ve had a profound impact on me and I’m glad we met. But my commitment is with steffy and our family. I wish you the best but I can’t have a relationship with you, not with my wife so against it. I’m sorry, but I can’t see you again, sheila. And you can’t be a grandmother to my son.

Sheila: No, you…

[ Voice breaking ] You don’t mean that, please finn. I… don’t shut me out. You and hayes are my family.

Finn: I wish you the best. I mean that.

Sheila: You can change his mind.

Steffy: Yeah, why would I do that?

Sheila: Because I’m his mother. Please, steffy. I didn’t come here to do battle with you. I’m not a bad person. I have goodness and love in my heart if you would just– just meet me in the middle, somewhere. Just give me a chance. Please, I will show you that I mean you no harm. I just want to know my son and my grandson.

Steffy: Goodbye, sheila.

[ Grunting ]

Quinn: Hey. I know it’s difficult but I don’t want you to worry. We’re gonna get through this.

Eric: You so beautifully expressed your devotion to me, but we have to be realistic. You’re a young, vibrant, sexy woman and you have needs that I may no longer be able to fulfill. Things that can only be expressed by making love.

Quinn: I don’t want you to think that way. C’mon, who knows what the future’s gonna hold! And no doctor has said this condition is permanent. Stop putting extra pressure on yourself by worrying about my needs. I’m happy, eric. Just being with you makes me happy.

Eric: Your happiness and your well-being are always gonna be my concern.

[ Door opening ]

Quinn: Carter. What are you doing here?

Carter: I got a text from eric.

Eric: I asked carter to join us. Don’t settle for products that give you a sort of white smile.

Quinn: You asked carter to join us?

Eric: Yes, yes, I did.

Carter: Looks like you were enjoying a lovely evening. I don’t want to intrude.

Eric: No, no intrusion. I know how close the two of you have become.

Carter: I’m sorry… where are we going with this?

Quinn: Nowhere. We’re not going anywhere with this. It stops here. Eric, you and I are back together. Why–why are we bringing up something so painful when we’ve already moved past it?

Eric: I didn’t ask carter here to rehash the past. You’re absolutely right. We’ve moved beyond that. My beautiful wife has moved home and she’s here in this house, with me. But I’m not able to be the husband to quinn that she deserves.

Quinn: Eric.

Eric: Look, this is, um. This is not a comfortable subject for me to talk about. I’ve seen doctors and so far, it’s been unsuccessful and, um–

Carter: You’re sick? I was concerned something was wrong. I asked quinn but she didn’t tell me.

Eric: No, no, no. Of course, she wouldn’T. And I love her for that.

Quinn: Why are you doing this?

Eric: At first, I tried to blame quinn for my shortcomings but I realized what I was really doing was just… covering my shame. I’m not able to satisfy my wife. You see what I mean, don’t you?

Carter: Yes… yes, and wow, um. I don’t know what to say, eric, but I’m sorry.

Eric: I was hoping for a spontaneous breakthrough when quinn moved home but unfortunately that hasn’t happened.

Quinn: Eric, why are you telling carter this?

Eric: Because I’ve come to the conclusion that just because my sex life is over, doesn’t mean yours has to be.

Steffy: Hayes goes down so much easier than kelly did at that age. So nice.

Finn: That age? She still fights it with everything she’s got.

Steffy: Yeah, and then all of a sudden she just passes out.

Finn: Should I open some wine?

Steffy: Oh babe, please. That sounds so great. Oh my goodness.

[ Finn sighing ]

Finn: I need to apologize again to you for sending that emoji to sheila. It was an impulse and I followed it. I mean, I should never have responded at all.

Steffy: I’m glad you realize that now.

Finn: I…I truly believed that she was out of our lives. That’s why I didn’t tell you. I thought it was one and done and I didn’t want to worry needlessly. I know now that was the wrong call.

Steffy: Well, you can’t beat yourself up. You were in a terrible position. And I get it, you wanted to know your mother. You were curious and that’s a completely normal reaction but, sheila is far from normal. I mean, faking a fall like that? That just proves that she hasn’t changed. She’s still this twisted, obsessive woman. But I am glad that you put your foot down, and you told her that she couldn’t be in your life, or hayes’. We still need to be vigilant. We have to keep our guard up. She doesn’t just walk away quietly. But you did the right thing breaking ties with her. And I’m really proud that you put our family first.

Finn: Always.

Sheila: Boy, it would be a mistake to count me out.

[ Grunting ] The forresters! They all write me off. They– they throw me away like I’m trash. But I will be a part of this family. Finn is my son and hayes is my grandson and I will be a part of their lives. And you better not try to stop me, steffy, or you’re gonna pay. You’re gonna pay dearly.

[ Dramatic music ]

Sheila: Can you see it now?

Steffy: It’s not what it looks like.

Sheila: It’s a text from finn on my phone.

Steffy: No. No, he wouldn’T.

Sheila: He did. And you tell me that I’m never going to be a part of finn’s life, but my son loves me, steffy. That text proves it. Finn sent me a heart emoji. I am gonna be a part of my son’s life. And there’s nothing you can do to stop that from happening.

Paris: I know you wanna get back to sheila.

Finn: I should. Paris, thank you for coming. And for being here for me.

Paris: Look, I know emergencies are your job but that’s your birth mother in there. I mean, it must have been really upsetting seeing her collapse.

Finn: I feel terrible. I could see she was getting agitated but I was so focused on getting her out of the house, making her leave, telling her to never see me again. That’s when she passed out.

Eric: Finn is bound to feel guilty about this.

Quinn: That’s the point. Classic sheila move.

Ridge: Well, apparently it worked. She’s at the hospital with my son-in-law by her side.

Eric: Exactly what we were afraid of. She’s using finn to worm her way back into our family.

Ridge: Not gonna let that happen.

Eric: I thought we had a restraining order against her.

Ridge: Well, we don’t have it yet.

Carter: Ridge.

Ridge: He’s the guy you wanna talk to about that.

Carter: Talk to me about what?

Ridge: The restraining order against sheila. You realize that every second we don’t have it, she gets her claws deeper and deeper into this family?

Carter: We have a hearing date for the restraining order but if sheila’s done something else–

Quinn: She’s running a game on finn.

Eric: She pretended to faint while he was trying to kick her out of the house.

Carter: She went there again?

Ridge: Of course she went there again. She’s gonna keep going there because she wants to have a relationship with finn. But more than that, she wants to be by my grandson.

[ Sighing ]

Finn: This is not where I thought I would be today, dealing with this. Steffy and I patched things up.

Paris: Wow, that’s great!

Finn: But then as soon as she left for work, sheila showed up and all I could think was “get her out”.

Paris: You can’t blame yourself for this. You are the reason that sheila’s here and she’s getting the care she needs. Even if steffy doesn’t think she really needs it.

Finn: Steffy has every reason not to want sheila in our lives.

Paris: Yes, they have a very complicated history. But we are talking about the woman who gave birth to you.

Finn: And if she was anyone else, I could have a relationship with her, but I’m not going to do that to my wife, to my family. I promised steffy no contact.

Paris: Well, you aren’t the one that invited her to your house. Your dad told her that she could meet hayes and you didn’t even say anything in the text message that you sent to her was just an emoji. Oh. Steffy still doesn’t know about that.

Finn: No. She’s already stressed out about everything else. I’m not gonna upset her even more.

Steffy: This can’t be real. Obviously you made this up.

Sheila: Check– check the text. It came from finn’s phone. Look at again if you need to, steffy. But I was– I was saying goodbye. I was leaving town and then finn texted me that heart showing me that he wanted me to stay. He doesn’t want me to go. He still doesn’T.

Steffy: Why would I believe you? All you do is lie.

Sheila: You want more proof?

Steffy: That doesn’t prove anything.

Sheila: What about today? The way my son took care of me and came to my aid. That tells me more than any text ever could. Does your vitamin c last twenty-four hours?

Ridge: We have to get control of the situation. ‘Cause right now all we’re doing is reacting to whatever sheila does and that’s gonna stop.

Carter: At least we know where she is.

Ridge: Yeah, we know where she is. You know who else is there? Finn and my daughter.

Eric: How long are they gonna be there in the hospital?

Quinn: As long as she’s getting sympathy from her son, the doctor, she’s gonna stay there as long as she can.

Eric: If sheila starts getting desperate, I agree with you. Steffy’s gonna confront her.

Ridge: I like to think my daughter’s smart enough to not put her children in danger.

Eric: Of course she is. I’m more concerned about their relationship. If she’s determined to drive a wedge between finn and steffy.

Quinn: You know, if sheila provokes her, steffy is never going to hold back.

Finn: I should get back in there.

Paris: You gonna be okay?

Finn: Sheila’s stable. The test results will tell us what happened.

Paris: Well, I know she’s gonna be okay because she has the best doctor in the hospital looking out for her. I’m asking about you though, finn. I know you haven’t known her for a very long time but that is your birth mother in there.

Finn: Seeing her go down like that. It shook me up a little.

Paris: I understand. It’s complicated. Being in the middle of a difficult situation like this. But if you ever need someone to talk to, I’m here.

Sheila: The text is from my son.

Steffy: I told you to stop calling him that! He’s my husband and he doesn’t want any contact with you.

Sheila: That’s what you want. You’re trying to lay down the laws saying that he can’t see me or talk to me. But what did he do, huh steffy? I was in trouble and he rushed me to the hospital. He probably saved my life.

Steffy: He did his job. It doesn’t make you special.

Sheila: I am. I am to him.

Steffy: You’re wrong. You’re wrong. You’re just a complication. He knows that you’re not gonna be in our lives, sheila.

Sheila: You just don’t see how this is truly hurting him.

Steffy: You know nothing about my husband.

Sheila: I gave birth to him. He’s a part of me. I’m a part of him.

Steffy: You want him to believe that. You want him to be vulnerable to you. You just keep manipulating him.

Sheila: You’re the one controlling him, not me.

Steffy: I am protecting my family.

Sheila: He’s not afraid of me. Finn didn’t try to chase me out of the house and he put my grandson in my arms. He loves me. He wants me in his life and the sooner you accept that, the better.

Steffy: Is that a threat?

Sheila: This is hurting finn. You have to be seeing that. He is being…

[ Machine beeping faster ] A wonderful husband right now, bowing down to your every unreasonable whim and– finn and I are always going to share a bond. A biological one, but you and your family will never be able to break.

Steffy: You wanna bet? Try coming near me and my family again and see what happens. This twisted fantasy that you have, being in finn’s and hayes’s life, it is not going to happen. It ends now!

Sheila: You forresters. Always telling everybody what to do. And you’ve gotta listen and you’ve gotta do this and it’s my husband and it’s my son. Like I’m not here, like I don’t even exist but I do. They’re my family too and hayes is my grandson!

Steffy: Don’t you dare say his name! Don’t you dare say his name!

[ Loud beeping ]

Paris: Is that–

Steffy: What did you do?

Finn: Mom!

[ Loud beeping ] Your mission:

Eric: I have to believe that finn will do the right thing.

Ridge: Yeah, I wanna believe that too. He loves steffy. He doesn’t wanna disappoint her again, regardless of what game sheila is playing.

Eric: I have to admit that for finn never to see his birth mother again, might seem to him too much of a sacrifice.

Ridge: That’s what you do for someone you love.

[ Phone alert ]

Eric: There’s our meeting in the cutting room. I can postpone–

Ridge: We’re not postponing anything. This woman has disrupted our lives enough as it is. Let’s go.

Eric: I’ll see you later.

Quinn: Steffy will let ridge know if there’s anything really wrong with sheila.

Carter: How are you doing, quinn? Last time we saw each other, I got the sense that something’s going on. Even though you’re back with eric, you can always open up to me. After everything we’ve been through, I’m always gonna care about you.

Steffy: Dr. Griffith said she’s stable.

Finn: Your vitals are normal. How’s your breathing?

Sheila: It’s better. I was just upset.

Finn: You’re supposed to be resting.

Sheila: I know. I was. I woke up and steffy was here and she started attacking me.

Steffy: I never touched you.

Sheila: She said the most terrible things.

Steffy: You see what she’s doing? It’s another one of her manipulations. She isn’t sick.

Finn: I was there when she collapsed, steffy. I called the ambulance. She just had another episode.

Steffy: She just brought you in here to make me look bad. I am telling you, she’s fine.

Sheila: How can I be fine when you tried to cut me out of finn’s and my grandson’s life?

Steffy: You see? You see what she’s doing?

Sheila: Am I not supposed to be upset about that?

Steffy: Have you forgotten all the crimes you’ve committed against my family?

Sheila: That’s not what this is about. It’s about what you saw. Go on. Tell him. Tell finn what you saw on my phone. I am so sorry, but I had to show her that you really did care about me and that if it weren’t for her, I would be a part of your lives. I had to show her the text that you sent me.

Steffy: I told her it wasn’t true. Is it? You promised there would be no contact between you two. Did you send her a heart emoji? Some people have joint pain,

Quinn: Carter, it’s– it’s very kind of you to be concerned.

Carter: Quinn, I’ll never stop thinking about you or being concerned. You know how I feel. How much I love you. How much I miss you. I think about you all the time. But I realize you’re in a different place and honestly I just want you to be happy. I mean, you’re back with eric, you’re back home. That must feel great. And I know eric can’t get enough of you, right?

Carter: Quinn. Look, if there’s something wrong, you can tell me what’s going on.

Quinn: I can’T. I really– I wish I could, but… I miss you. And everything that we had, but I love eric. He’s my husband and I’m 100% committed to him.

Carter: He’s very lucky to have you.

Quinn: Eric loves me very much. He tells me every single day.

Steffy: Did you send sheila that text? I know she lies but is she lying about this?

Finn: No.

Steffy: You replied to her after I told you to have no contact with sheila. Finn!

Finn: She said she was leaving town. I just wanted her to know that I got the message.

Steffy: By sending her a heart?

Finn: Replying “okay”? That seemed a little– I don’t know. But look, I didn’t say anything. And we didn’t communicate.

Steffy: Maybe you didn’t mean to, but by doing that, you let her back in. This woman is more than dangerous. She is evil and what she’s doing to us is evil. I’m not trying to be cruel or unfair right now. I’m trying to protect you and our children. I know that you’ve been thinking about your birth mother. You wanna know her. You wanna help her but you can’t because she’s a sociopath. So that’s why you have to walk away from this. Walk away from this terrible human being.

Sheila: I’m sorry. I am so sorry, finn, honey. I never meant to cause you more trouble.

Steffy: Oh no, don’t listen to her. Please, do not listen to her.

Sheila: I know that you didn’t want steffy to see that text, but she kept saying that all of this was just in my head and that you didn’t care and I know that you do.

Steffy: Stop it! Leave him alone.

Sheila: Look, she’s the one making demands here. Not me. Yes, I’ve done terrible things, things that I do regret. The forrester family, they were attacking me, always and trying to make it so that people didn’t like me, just like steffy is doing right now.

Steffy: Finn, I want her out of our lives. I’m trying to keep our children safe.

Sheila: Please, finn, don’t let her do this. You are my son. And I want to know you. I hated giving you up. And I thought about you everyday. And wondered what you were doing. If you ever thought about me. And I hoped that there would be a day that I’d be able to speak to you. Is that so wrong? Is that a crime? To care for you? For your mother to love you?

Sheila: Because that’s how I feel. And it’s the truth. I love you. I’ve always loved you and I always will. I want to know you. I want to know you. I want to be a part of your life. I want to–I want to know that little boy that I brought into this world. And I think, deep down, that you want to know me too. Please don’t walk out that door. Don’t do it. Don’t leave your mother.

[Siren wailing in distance]

[Monitor beeping steadily]

Steffy: Finn, look at me. I know that it sounds crazy, but she is faking it. It’s an act. She’s manipulating you.

Finn: She lost consciousness, steffy.

Steffy: You were in the middle of telling her you never wanted to see her again, and then she suddenly collapses at our house?

Finn: They’re running a few more tests. We’re just– we’re waiting on the lab results and we–

Steffy: It’s a waste of time! This isn’t real! It’s not real! Sheila is a pro at this. Come on! We have to just–just walk out of here, okay? Let’s walk out of the hospital room and never see her again.

Ridge: I knew it. I knew sheila wouldn’t leave town.

Brooke: Felt way too easy.

Ridge: [Sighs] Finn was wrong to allow her to see hayes. You know that, right?

Brooke: It’s only made her more obsessive.

Ridge: When is this nightmare gonna be over?

Brooke: I don’t know. She’s been messing with our family for years. Now to find out she’s finn’s biological mother and hayes’ grandmother? Makes me wonder what more she’s capable of.

Ridge: I know.

Brooke: I’m just worried about the strain that she’s putting on steffy and finn’s relationship.

Paris: Finn screwed up.

Zende: You think?

Paris: [Sighs] I mean, but he fully owns his mistake. He knows that sheila shouldn’t be anywhere around steffy or her family. But the fact that he’s pretty much perfect in every other way has got to count for something, right?

Zende: Oh. So he’s perfect now, huh?

Paris: Zende, no one’s perfect, but finn’s very, very close.

Zende: Closer than me?

Paris: You guys may be neck and neck.

Zende: Really?

Paris: You may be winning by just a hair.

Brooke: It’s just really unfortunate that steffy’s caught in the middle. She loves finn so much, but she can’t standthe woman who gave birth to him.

Ridge: No one can stand her. And steffy has every right to feel uneasy about it.

Brooke: Absolutely. Finn needs to show better judgment.

Ridge: Yeah.

Brooke: But she did say that the relationship is back on track.

Ridge: Well, let’s hope this latest stunt doesn’t derail their progress.

Zende: You can admit it. You’re kinda crushing on finn, aren’t you?

Paris: Oh, you mean the same way that model was crushing on you?

Zende: Touché.

Paris: Can’t blame her.

Zende: I mean, I can’t blame her, either.

Paris: Mm-hmm.

Zende: Finn’s a good-looking guy. He’s a doctor, and he surfs. I get it. Seems like everyone’s got a thing for him these days.

Paris: Not everybody.

Zende: Are you saying you don’t?

Finn: I hear you, and I respect your feelings, but we’re–

Steffy: Then let’s go! Sheila’s in good hands. She’s gonna be just fine. We have to think about our family, finn.

Finn: I am thinking about us. You and the kids always come first. But like it or not, steffy, she is my mother.

Steffy: She’s your birth mother.

Finn: And she’s alone and scared in a hospital all by herself. I told her that I would be here. I can’t just abandon her. Some people have joint pain,

[Horn honks]

Ridge: Just texted steffy. Wanna see what’s happening at the hospital.

Zende: Hospital? Somebody get hurt?

Brooke: So she says.

Ridge: Sheila.

Zende: What did she do this time?

Ridge: Went to steffy’s house again.

Paris: Again?

Brooke: She snuck onto the property and then fainted on the floor.

Ridge: At a very opportune moment.

Zende: You’re not buying it.

Brooke: No, unfortunately, finn is vulnerable to his birth mother. In fact, he’s at the hospital with her right now. Steffy just filled us in.

Paris: Well, let me guess. Steffy went over there to confront her.

Ridge: Of course she did. She doesn’t want finn to be manipulated anymore.

Zende: But isn’t there a restraining order in place?

Brooke: Carter’s working on it, but because of the family connection, it’s a little bit complicated.

Paris: Um, you know what? I-I-I actually have a thing I have to do for the foundation.

Zende: Right now?

Paris: Yeah, it’s a video chat thing. I completely forgot about it.

Ridge: Go ahead. Do your thing.

Zende: It’s gotta be tough on both of you.

Ridge: You know what’s tough, zende? Trying to explain to finn how dangerous this woman really is. We’ve tried. We’ve all tried, but he’s not listening, so…almost to the point where I don’t wanna tell him anymore. You know what? I’m not just gonna sit back and let this woman try to weasel her way back into this family. Not gonna let it happen.

Brooke: Steffy’s not gonna let it happen either.

Steffy: I’d rather not have this conversation in here, not when she can hear us.

Finn: She’s asleep, steffy. She’s had a very trying day.

Steffy: No, no, she hasn’T. This is a scam. She’s trying to exploit your feelings. That’s what she does best. Finn, you have to trust me on this. I know you are put in a terrible position right now and part of you does feel bad for her, but… don’t let her suck you in, okay? You need to walk away. The more attention you give this woman, the more you make her feel like she’s your mother, the more she’s gonna be fixated on this. You’re gonna keep feeding the monster, and you can’t do that. You need to stop right now. We need to just go and never see sheila again.

Nurse: Sorry to interrupt. Dr. Finnegan, you wanted an update on the patient in 103. I’d have called, but since you’re here, the results are in.

Finn: Okay. Thank you. I gotta go take care of that. You wanna sit out in the waiting area?

Steffy: No, I’m gonna stay here, wait till sheila wakes up.

Finn: Look, steffy, I know you think she’s pretending, but people don’t just collapse for no reason. She might have something underlying. I’m gonna be right back.

Steffy: Hey. Finn left. It’s just you and me now. You can drop the act. You are so full of it. Obviously, you were listening to everything we were saying. So why don’t you open those eyes and look at me? Because you’re gonna hear exactly what I have to say.

(Motorcycle running)


Brooke: Is everything okay with paris, zende?

Zende: Um, I, uh–I think so. Why?

Brooke: I just got the feeling that she might be concerned about steffy and finn’s relationship, what they’re going through.

Zende: It could be part of it. Paris lives at the house, and sheila’s existence is enough to rattle anyone.

Ridge: That’s why finn has to cut all ties with that woman, end this nightmare.

Brooke: For everyone’s safety, especially the sake of their marriage.

Zende: We were just talking about that, how good they are together. Paris is really concerned. She doesn’t want anything or anyone coming between steffy and finn.

[Elevator door dings]

Paris: Finn.

Finn: Paris, hey. What are you doing here?

Paris: I heard about what happened with sheila, and I just wanted to see how you were doing.

Finn: [Sighs] Um, I was just gonna check on her. I had to see another patient.

Paris: Oh, I’m sorry. Don’t let me stop you from doing your job.

Finn: No, no, it’s okay. Sheila’s–she’s resting, and she’s stable, as far as we know.

Paris: Stable is good.

Finn: Yeah.

Paris: It must be a relief for you, knowing that she’s most likely in the clear, out of the woods.

Finn: She’s in good hands. There’s a lot of people watching over her, but…

[Sighs] I admit, it was a little scary watching her go down like that right at the house.

Paris: Oh, my god. I can only imagine. I wish I was there to help out.

Finn: Yeah, I mean, it was the last thing I was expecting. She was standing there, and then… I think she got upset. Anyway, um, it was really nice of you to come by, and it means a lot that you took some time to reach out.

Paris: Well, that’s what I’m here for. I am assuming that steffy isn’t giving you much support.

Sheila: Enough already. You need to leave me alone and get the hell out of here.

Steffy: All right, sheila, you had your fun. It’s time to cut this out. I’m not an idiot. Your sudden collapse as finn was telling you to get out and never come back? Hmm. What a coincidence. And bravo. You were able to lower your blood pressure. I guess your nursing degree really did come in handy. Finn may have fallen for your charade, but I haven’T. I know exactly who you are, so it’s time to give it up. Give up the act and wake up. Let’s go. Wake up. Come on now. Wake up, girl. Wake up.

Sheila: You are relentless, steffy forrester, worse than your grandmother ever was. Okay, fine. Anything to get you to shut your mouth.

Steffy: [Scoffs]

Sheila: [Exhales]

[Exhales] Finn? Where’s– where’s finn?

Steffy: He’s not here.

Sheila: [Exhales, mumbles] Where’s–who are you? Who are you?

Steffy: You know who I am. You’ve been listening to us the entire time.

Sheila: Nurse, I was just…

Steffy: It’s steffy.

Sheila: Oh, steffy.

[Groans] Get water. Please, wat–some water.

Steffy: [Sighs]

Sheila: Thank you.

Steffy: There’s nothing wrong with you. Physically. I mean, this fantasy that you’re clinging to, that you’re gonna be in finn’s and hayes’s life forever, you need to drop it. It’s not gonna happen. All the deception and the lies, it ends here. Now. A lot of people think dealing with copd

Ridge: Uh-oh, steffy texted back. Let’s see.

Brooke: What? What’d she say?

Ridge: She is alone in a room with sheila.

Brooke: Really? Is that a good idea?

Ridge: Apparently she’s still “unconscious.”

Zende: This is seriously insane, to pull something like that?

Ridge: Yeah, she’s putting on a show for everybody.

Zende: I mean, if that’s the case, she’s seriously unhinged. I hope steffy’s being extra careful.

Ridge: You know, I’m not worried about steffy. Worried about your pal finn.

Brooke: She’s playing the victim. She’s trying to get under his skin.

Ridge: Then don’t let her! Come on! Finn needs to get on board. Trust your wife, and stop listening to sheila.

Paris: Steffy does have her own perspective.

Finn: Years of conflict between sheila and her family.

Paris: Yeah, I’m not trying to judge. She has legit reasoning. It makes sense why she thinks it’s a play for sympathy.

Finn: But it’d just be so difficult to pull off.

Paris: Yeah, but you also don’t want to believe that sheila could fake you out like that. Deep down, you’re worried about her health, and her well-being. And that’s okay, it’s normal. You’re her son. And it doesn’t sound like she has anyone else around that cares whether she lives or dies. It’s just you.

Finn: Yeah, who knows?

Paris: The point is, I feel you, finn. And if you need a friend, I’m here.

Finn: I appreciate that. And everything that you said. I just… [Sighs] Can’t stop thinking about sheila and steffy alone together. No matter how this plays out, I don’t see how anybody wins.

Sheila: What-what happened? What are you talking about?

Steffy: Don’t come to my home ever again. You stay away from my husband and my children.

Sheila: Your home.

[Sighs] I wanted to see my son and my grandson.

Steffy: Don’t call them that.

Sheila: But I am.

Steffy: They’re-they’re not yours. They’re not yours to claim. Finn asked you to leave. Repeatedly. But instead of respecting his wishes, you blacked out. You fell on the floor, claiming that it was some kind of emergency. It’s all to worm your way back into my family. I know what this is. It’s over for you. It’s done.

Sheila: God, you have no sympathy. Finn is my boy. Hayes is my grandson and I love them both.

Steffy: You don’t even know what that feels like.

Sheila: Oof. Ooh, ouch. Oh, that hurt, that’s right. Just, you know, kick her while she’s down. Look at me, steffy. I could’ve had a heart attacK.

Steffy: Sadly, I’m betting your cold, empty heart is gonna be just fine. Once finn figures out everything, that this was all a con job, he’s not gonna want anything to do with you ever again.

Sheila: My son wants–

Steffy: Could you stop calling him that?

Sheila: It’s true. He has affection for his mother. Is that so–

Steffy: He’s never given you any indication that he cares about you!

Sheila: Actually, he has.

Steffy: What?

Sheila: My phone. Why don’t you go–go check my texts?

Steffy: Why?

Sheila: Look up finn’s number and open it.

Steffy: You texted him?

Sheila: Yes. Is that a crime?

Steffy: I told him not to respond to you. That he shouldn’t have any communication with you.

Sheila: Well, see for yourself. It’s a heart emoji. You know what that means. That means he loves me. Like it or not, he loves his mother. I will always, always, be a part of my son’s life. There’s nothing you can do about it, steffy.
