[ Relaxing music ]

Liam: You can’t be serious.

Hope: My mother confirmed it.

Liam: And confirmed what– what douglas said, that he saw that night?

Hope: Yes, that he saw grandma kissing santa claus, only it wasn’t santa claus. It was my father.

Liam: Deacon.

Ridge: Hey… faced bigger challenges than this. We always made it through. We’re going to make it through again, together.

Brooke: I want to believe that so much.

Ridge: You want to believe it? You have to believe it. Believe in us, our destiny.

Brooke: Yes, of course.

Ridge: I’m here… no matter what.

Steffy: Dad, brooke, what is going on?

Grace: Would you believe it? I can’t even sew a simple hemline.

Zende: Dr. Buckingham. Hey!

Grace: Grace, please. Now what do you suppose that says about me?

Zende: That your talents lay elsewhere? After all, you are highly successful doctor? But truth be told, I can’t sew a hemline either.

Grace: Oh, I very much doubt that.

Zende: Well, what brings you to forrester?

Grace: Well, I was just driving by. I am actually looking for my daughter. I thought she might be here with you.

Zende: Sorry. Um… no. I don’t know where paris is.

Carter: Mmm… what are we doing?

Paris: I believe it’s called kissing.

Carter: I mean…

Paris: I–I know what you mean, carter. But I just… I don’t see the problem.

Carter: Of course you do. Paris, if this goes any further, it’s not– it’s not a good idea.

Paris: Maybe, or maybe we’re just getting in our own way.

Carter: I wish, but I’m sorry, paris, as much as I really, really want to… I can’T.

Grace: These are beautiful.

Zende: Thank you.

Grace: May I make a tiny confession?

Zende: Sure. Okay.

Grace: As much as I like to stay out of both my daughters’ love lives, sometimes I can’t help myself. I have to tell them how I feel, whether they like it or not. Shocking, I know. But it’s very clear you are such a fine, upstanding, accomplished young man. And I am so delighted that paris has found someone good like you.

Sequoyah: Sorry. Photo shoot ran long, but I am ready now. Can’t wait to get our date started.

Paris: You can’t what?

Carter: I can’t–we– we can’t be doing this.

Paris: I won’t tell if you won’T. It’s nobody’s business.

Carter: Already been down that road, paris, with quinn? Sneaking around, keeping things on the dl.

Paris: She was married and I’m not.

Carter: And I still yet very, very complicated. I almost lost everything. My friendship with ridge, relationship with eric, and the rest of the forresters, not to mention my job.

Paris: I understand.

Carter: Do you?

Paris: Yeah, but don’t expect me to like it.

Carter: Aw… you’re cute when you pout. To get involved with another woman who’s involved with the forrester men?

Paris: Okay, zende and i are dating, yes. But we both agreed to see other people. He’s going out with a gorgeous model tonight, and I’m okay with that. And I’m very okay with this. Don’t you want to be with me as much as I want to be with you?

Liam: Wait, so when douglas looked through brooke’s window that night…

Hope: He saw my father wearing a santa’s hat. And luckily he didn’t see his face, but he saw someone.

Liam: What, he saw someone wearing a santa hat, which is why he thought he saw grandma kissing santa claus?

Hope: Except it was my dad.

Liam: Oh, my god. Tell me ridge doesn’t know.

Hope: No, no, thank goodness. But if he does find out–

Liam: Well, yeah–

Hope: That–that is what my mom is terrified about.

Ridge: Steffy, what brings you by?

Steffy: I just wanted to stop by and see if I could… brooke, what’s going on? You seem upset.

Ridge: Everything’s fine. I was just talking about maybe getting some fresh air, going for a drive, you know?

Steffy: Nice try, dad. It’s becoming more and more obvious that you and brooke are going through something. I mean, I just walked in and you are clearly upset, brooke. How much longer are you going to keep this from me? Don’t settle for products that give you a sort-of white smile.

Sequoyah: Oh, my bad. I didn’t know you were with someone.

Zende: It’s okay. Listen, sequoia, why don’t you wait downstairs while I finish things up here? I’ll be right down.

Sequoyah: Well, since I’ve waited this long for a date with the fabulous zende forrester, guess I can wait a bit longer.

Zende: You look confused. I’m sorry, I figured you knew where things stood between paris and me. We’re dating, but not exclusive. This is something we both want.

Grace: This being seeing other people?

Zende: Please know I care deeply for paris. She’s very special to me, and we’ve shared many amazing times together. And I’m very much hoping that we’ll share many more.

Grace: But the flirtatious model downstairs awaits.

Zende: If I see paris on my way out, I’ll tell her you’re looking for her.

[ Phone jingling ]

Paris: Mmm! It’s my mom’s ringtone. Hey, mom, what’s up?

Grace: I need to see you. I stopped by forrester creations. I thought you’d be here.

Paris: Oh, what? What’s going on?

Grace: I’d like to talk to you in person. Where are you? I mean, I can come meet you wherever you are.

Paris: No, no, no, no. If it’s that important, I can just– I can come by the office.

Grace: I think it is.

Paris: Okay, well, I’ll see you in a bit.

Carter: Is your mom all right?

Paris: I think so, but her timing could have been better.

Carter: I think she might have done us a favor. Might be best for you to leave before things… go too far between us.

Paris: You are being very cautious, mr. Walton.

Carter: Paris. I don’t want you to get hurt.

Paris: I don’t want that either. But knowing the guy that you are, I don’t think that will happen.

Carter: Your mom is waiting.

Paris: I know, but I wonder what could be so urgent.

Carter: And I wonder how your mom would feel about another one of her daughters getting involved with me. Given how things turned out between me and zoe.

Paris: Okay, would you– would you like me to ask her?

Carter: No, no. Not at all.

Paris: You don’t think that she would approve?

Carter: I don’t think we even know what to call this yet. Or where it might go.

Paris: But I think we might be getting closer to finding out.

Liam: Okay. Wow, this is just–this is… this is too much.

Hope: I know how it sounds, but it is not what you’re thinking.

Liam: Well, I mean, you literally just told me that your dad spent the night with brooke on new year’s, and in fact, they slept in the same bed together? So–

Hope: Okay, yes, they did. But he was on top of the covers. They were fully dressed, so nothing actually happened.

Liam: Well, no, like this one thing didn’t happen. But a lot happened.

Ridge: We appreciate your concern, but trust me when I tell you that everything’s under control.

Steffy: I do trust you, dad. But when I look at brooke, is that how you feel? This is how things are supposed to be?

Ridge: Everything’s fine. So tell me why you came by?

Steffy: I came by because i wanted to see if you were coming to dinner tonight, remember? We talked about it at my house.

Ridge: Yeah.

Steffy: Thought I could give you a ride or something.

Ridge: It’S… tonight may not be the best night for that.

Steffy: Because you don’t want to leave brooke for some reason? I mean, if she’d like to join, she can, but it’s just gonna be our family, so…

Brooke: You should go, ridge. It’s obviously very important to steffy. And you and I can spend time together later.

Ridge: You sure?

Brooke: Yeah, it’s fine. I’m fine, really.

Ridge: Okay.

These are the faces

Paris: Mom? Hey. What brings you by?

Grace: I was in the neighborhood. Thought I’d see if you wanted to grab some coffee.

Paris: Well, is everything okay? You sounded concerned on the phone.

Grace: I was hoping you’d tell me there’s no reason to be. That I’m misinterpreting or overreacting.

Paris: Overreacting to what? I don’t understand.

Grace: Neither do I. You and zende. What’s really going on with you two?

Mess it up, straighten out

fess up, hang it up

look away, stare it down

build it up, rip it down

check up, fall down

pick it up, pick it up

pick it up

get it up, get it up

mess up, straighten out

fess up, hang it up

look away, stare it down

build it up, rip it down

Hope: My mom wasn’t herself that night. She relapsed. Ridge didn’t make it home, and all of it. She was blacked out and my dad helped her upstairs, tucked her into bed. They both slept it off, but then imagine the next morning when my mom wakes up and sees deacon lying there.

Liam: I mean, think what would have happened if ridge came home and found them like that? We’re actually– not even that. What would happen if ridge ever gets wind of this?

Brooke: You know?

Liam: Yeah, hope just told me.

Brooke: I still haven’t figured out why I did what I did that night. Why I drank after so many years have been sober. And on top of that, I…I kissed deacon. A kiss that douglas saw! We have to talk to him and make sure he doesn’t tell anybody.

Steffy: Unfortunately, the er’s shorthanded. Finn’s going to have to pull a double shift and mom’s tied up. She’s dealing with a patient, so I don’t know if we’re gonna see her.

Ridge: Hey, what about your brother?

Steffy: Thomas will be here. And amelia is coming with kelly and hayes.

Ridge: Hm.

Steffy: Dad, she said she was going to be fine. Brooke, I know you’re thinking about her. And she’s your wife, and you love her, but honestly–

Ridge: No buts, please. Don’t criticize her. She’s gone through a lot, just don’t keep piling stuff on.

Steffy: I’m not–

Ridge: Okay?

Douglas: Grandpa.

Ridge: Hey! I didn’t know you were coming. What a great surprise. Hi.

Thomas: Yeah, I picked him up on the way here. He was actually waiting for me at the gate house.

Ridge: Wow.

Steffy: He didn’t know you had him today.

Thomas: Yeah, that wasn’t actually in the plans, but I cleared it with hope a couple of days ago.

Douglas: I hope mommy isn’t mad at me? Wait, why would she be mad at you, bud? Like pulsing, electric shocks,

Brooke: So where is douglas? In his room?

Liam: He’s outside playing.

Brooke: Okay, well, we have to talk to him right away. We need to make sure that he doesn’t tell anybody that he saw grandma kissing santa on new year’S.

Liam: Yeah, we–I’ll go get him. Um…yeah.

Hope: Mom, you really need to calm down about this, okay. If douglas saw you–

Brooke: I know, honey, but what are we going to do? He can’t tell anybody, especially not ridge.

Hope: He won’T.

Brooke: He’s a smart young kid. I mean, he’s going to be asking questions. I don’t even know how we’re going to explain this.

Hope: And we will deal with that when and if we have to. I mean, right now–

Liam: Hey, guys, I can’t find him.

Brooke: Well, did you check up at my house?

Liam: Supposed to be in the treehouse, but he’s not there.

Hope: You know what? No. It’s–actually it’s thomas’s day today. So maybe, maybe he already picked douglas up. I don’t–

Liam: Wait a minute, thomas? He should have told us if he was going to come get douglas.

Hope: No, he did. He left a voicemail, and there’s a text message.

Liam: All right. What? Hope, what?

Hope: He said he took douglas over to steffy’s house, and, uh… ridge is going to be joining them.

Brooke: If that’s true, then douglas could be telling them right now. And ridge is, he’s going to put it together. He’s going to know that I kissed deacon.

Ridge: You’re worried you upset your mom?

Douglas: Uh huh.

Thomas: There’s no need to be worried, bud. Your mom knows you’re here with me.

Douglas: That’s not it.

Steffy: The reason hope might be mad at you, you mean?

Douglas: I saw something. I told mommy and liam about it. They asked a lot of questions.

Thomas: Questions… about what?

Ridge: Hey. Come here. We’re family, you can tell us.

Douglas: I left my stuffed animal up at grandma’s house. I snuck out of the cabin to get it. It was dark outside and mommy and liam didn’t know I’d gone.

Thomas: I can see why your mom would be upset. Yeah, it’s a big property. It’s very safe, but you’re just a little boy.

Douglas: I know.

Steffy: Yeah, it’s understandable why hope and liam wouldn’t want you roaming around at night.

Ridge: Is there something else? You don’t have to tell us, but… might feel better if you do.

Douglas: I’m sorry I disobeyed mommy and liam. I won’t do it again. But getting to see grandma with santa claus?

Thomas: Wait, what?

Douglas: When I got to the main house that night, I saw grandma kissing santa.

Brooke: Just one mention by douglas to any of them about what he saw on new year’s eve…

[ Brooke sighing ] That could lead to figuring out what I did. That I kissed deacon. And if that happens… my marriage isn’t going to be able to recover. I will lose ridge forever.

Ridge: You saw grandma kissing santa claus? Grandma brooke?

[ Dramatic music ]

Brooke: It’s been really eating me up inside, you know? Lying to you, lying to ridge. If he really knew the truth about what happened that night, if he knew that deacon was here and we were drinking like that and he kissed me and spent the night, I would lose him. I would. He would walk away and he would never look back.

Taylor: How can you feel so familiar after all this time?

Ridge: We held each other up for many years. I would recognize those hugs anywhere, blindfolded.

Taylor: We loved each other so much.

Ridge: And we have a beautiful fami to prove it.

Taylor: Yeah, what we shared lives on in thomas and steffy. Every time I look at them, I can see us. All those memories. It’s one of the reasons I stayed away. But I am grateful for what we shared, for the time we had. Because the same memories that kept me away for so long are the same ones that got me through some of the saddest moments of my life. When I couldn’t help looking back awhat could have been.

Carter: Mm… we should stop.

Carter: Mm…seriously.Paris: Why? Why? Zende and I agreed that we’re not exclusive. He’s literally out on a date with sequoyah right now–

Carter: Defense mechanisms, zende is still in love with you. And how can he not be? You are–you’re amazing. You’re beautiful. Sexy.

Taylor: Hey, you two.

Steffy: Sorry to interrupt.

Thomas: Yeah, we nca actually come back–

Ridge: Just get in here.

Taylor: No, your father and I were just… reminiscing.

Ridge: Yeahyou guys were children.

Steffy: Well, I’m glad to know I’m not alone because I think about that a lot, especiallnow y at mom is back. It’s nice. All of us being together.

Thomas: Yeah, kind of missed hanging out with both my parents. That’s weird, but…

Ridge: But it is nice, yes.

Steffy: Yeah. Better than going home, I’ll bet, now that brooke and hope have rolled out the red carpet for deacon.

Douglas: Mommy’s not back yet?

Liam: Hey. No, not yet.

Douglas: You’re sure she’s not upset with me?

Liam: Hey. Absolutely not. Of course, she’s not upset. Why would she be upset with you?

Douglas: Because I told you guys I saw grandma kissing santa claus.

Hope: Mom. Mom. Li it was one kiss. Okay? It’s not the end of the world.

Brooke: Your father spent the night, honey. We shared the same bed.

Hope: Wait, you said nothing happened.

Brooke: No, nothing did happen. Of course nothing happened! There’s not enough alcohol in the world. But ridge hates deacon. If he finds out what happened, if he finds out that he was here, my marriage is over. Life’s been hard enough.

Carter: I want you, paris.

Paris: I want you too so why are we still talking?

Carter: This is going against every instinct that I have but… I can’T.

Paris: Seriously?

Carter: No, not after what happened with quinn and eric. I can’t do that again, paris. I can’t go down that road again.

Ridge: Okay. I’m not going to lie to you. Brooke inviting deacon back into our lives, it’s been a problem. And it’s caused tension because the guy’s an idiot.

Thomas: Exactly. But brooke won’t listen to you. Being so adamantly against something or someone coming into your family and you’re trying to protect them. And you would think that she would be okay with that and not dismiss you.

Taylor: Maybe ridge doesn’t feel that way–

Ridge: You know what ridge feels right now? I–I feel that I can work it out with brooke. All right? There’s an obstacle, I’m gonna work around it.That’s–that’s what a marriage is. You fix things!

Steffy: Really, dad? Aren’t you tired? One obstacle after the next. Don’t you want some tranquility and peace–

Taylor: Steffy, I think you’ve said enough.

Steffy: I’m trying to make things easier for dad. I’m trying to remind dad that you have a family right here who love you. And we would never let you down the way brooke has.

Liam: Hey douglas, have a seat for a second. Here’s jelly. I just… I promise this the last time I’m going askto and then I won’t bring it up again, okay? But… are you absolutely sure about what you saw on new year’s?

Douglas: Yes! I really did see grandma kissing santa claus. I hope I didn’t make you and mommy mad by telling you.

>>: Brooke: I don’t want to lose my husband and my marriage and everything that ridge and I fought so long and hard for. Over what? Over a stupid, alcohol-fuelled mistake? This never would have happened if I was sober. You have to believe me.

Hope: Of course I do, mom.

Brooke: And that kiss to deacon, it was– there was nothing. Nothing. But ridge won’t believe that. The minute he knows that I let deacon stay here–

Hope: But you didn’T. You woke up and he was right next to you on top of the covers, so…

Brooke: Honey, there’s no way I come out of this looking good. You do understand that, don’t you? I will lose ridge. That’s whyou can’t say anything to anybody. We can’t risk it getting back to ridge.

Hope: Look, I understand that you’re afraid, but I have to tell liam. No, he was the first person that douglas told about what he saw and he’s concerned and he’s asking questions. And he knows I’m up here right now talking to you about this.

Brooke: No, no. No! It’s not that I don’t trust liam, I’m just desperately trying to hold onto my marriage, here. Oh, no. Oh, no.

Hope: What?

Brooke: Well, douglas. He’s probably running around telling everybody that he saw grandma kissing santa.

Hope: No, I think he just told liam and me.

Brooke: Well, I don’t know, honey. He’s sweet. He’s an outgoing kid. He could be talking to anybody. And he doesn’t know that what he’s hanging on to is so explosive. He’s around taylor and steffy and thomas anridge all the time. They’ll figure out that what douglas really saying is… it’s gonna lead them bkac to me. Ordinary tissues burn when theo blows.

Paris: I guess I’m just a little confused. I thought you wanted this.

Carter: You have no idea how much.

Paris: Okay, so– so what are you doing? We’re both free.

Carter: Zende is still in love with you. That’s a fact. He bought a ring. He was going to ask you to marry him before you pulled back. He’s still adjusting, even if he’s seeing other women. And don’t want to make things difficult for him, paris. I– I don’t want tension between us. Not after what I did to eric.

Paris: But quinn was eric’s wife. I’m single.

Carter: But it still feels the same, it feels like a betrayal. Not to mention my standing with the forresters. I somehow came out of the whole situation with quinn with some respect intact. And if I got with a woman that’s– that’s involved with a forrester man? I mean, come on. The forresters, they’re like family to me and i don’t want to lose them. But at the same time, how am I supposed to stay away from you?

Thomas: Which is why it did work. That was– that was–

[ Steffy sighing ]

Steffy: I was hoping more time with dad, you know? It was fun while it lasted, though.

Taylor: Yeah, I enjoyed it too. Um, but it was clear that your father wanted to get home to brooke. Now, I meant what I said earlier. I don’t want either of you putting your father on the spot like that again.

Steffy: I don’t think it’s undue pressure to remind him that he has options, another family who respect his wishes when he feels strongly about something.

Thomas: Yeah, look, I’m trying to stay neutral here but honestly, brooke allowing deacon to hang around when it goes against my dad’s objections– it’s sorof it your-face disrespectful.

Taylor: Yeah, but there are mitigating circumstances. Brooke can’t do anything about it and hope wants to have a relationship with her father. Brooke doesn’t want to push her daughter away.

Steffy: How can you be so fair and reasonable all the time?

Thomas: I think it’s an occupational hazard.

Steffy: Right.

Taylor: It is. It is, and I see what’s happening here. No matter how old or worldly, kids want the parents together. But you see, there is a hitch inhis situation. And hename is brooke. She’s married to ridge.

Steffy: Now. But that could change.

Liam: Douglas, I promise you, nobody’s mad at you. Okay?

Douglas: I’m not in trouble?

Liam: No, no–I mean, your mom and I weren’t psyched that you snuck out that night just because, you know, when parents say, “no,” it’s usually for a good reason. But listen, we’re really proud of you for telling the truth.

Douglas: I really did see grandma kissing santa claus.

Liam: Hey. Come here. Come here. Look at me. I believe you. I do.

Brooke: Douglas is innocent. He doesn’t know what he’s saying. Or that he’s sitting on this awful secret that could actually blow up my marriage. And he saw me kissing santa. So all he has to do is tell taylor or steffy, thomas–god forbid, ridge– and they would connect the dots straight back to deacon. And my marriage would be over.

Hope: Okay. You don’t know that for sure, mom. I get how ridge feels about my dad. But you were drinking. You were impaired. I mean, he–he has to understand that you wouldn’t have kissed deacon otherwise. And besides, the two of you, you’re forgiven each other for far worse.

Brooke: Honey, I know my husband. If he knows that I kissed your father, he will be gone. So how could I not be worried?

Ridge: Hey. What’s going on? (Vo) it’s yoooopllllaaaitiimmeee!!!

Carter: Believe me, paris, pushing you away is not what I want to do at all but I–I have to use my best judgment this time.

Paris: That is highly overrated.

Carter: Not if you’re me. Think about it. Eric and zende are living in the same house. First I was with quinn and now I’m here with you? Look, I’m not the kind of guy that betrays his friends. At least I wasn’T. And I don’t want to be again. What are you doing? You do that thing and you start to smile… and make it impossible…

Taylor: I know you both want our family reunited, but it’s just not possible.

Steffy: Aren’t you the one who always says, “nothing’s impossible?”

Taylor: Yes. But brooke is ridge’s wife, not me. I don’t want you wishing the end of their marriage. It’s bad karma.

Thomas: I wouldn’t want that with sheila and deacon hanging around.

Steffy: We’re not actively wishing bad luck on dad and brooke, but brooke does have a track record. It’s only a matter of time before she does something to drive dad away. And when that happens, you will be there for him.

Liam: Douglas is uh, playing outside and beth is still with amelia, so at least we have a chance to talk. You look drained.

[ Hope scoffing ] Anyway, um…douglas isn’t changing his story. I mean, I tried to give him the opportunity but he still insists that he saw grandma kissing santa claus. What did brooke say when you asked her?

Hope: My mom was shocked to say the least. So it’s not true. There was no santa claus, which is weird because, you know, it’s not like douglas to make stuff up.

Hope: He didn’T.

Liam: But you–you just… I’m sorry, I’m confused now. If… we know that it wasn’t ridge, obviously, because ridge was out of town, so… hold on a second, who was it?

Hope: Well, you’re not going to believe it but it’s true. Douglas saw my mom kissing santa claus. Or, at least a man wearing a red and white hat. My mother was kissing my father.

Liam: Holy–

Ridge: Alright. Just us. Tell me. What’s going on with you and hope. I mean, you guys never fight so, something I should be concerned about?

Brooke: No, everything’s fine between hope and me.

Ridge: Well, I’m looking at you so it’s gotta be something else. And I’m not accusing anybody. I’m just asking what happened?

Brooke: You don’t know how much itothe b me, what happened that night. And how I wish I could just take it all back.

Ridge: I’m here, I’ll do whatever you need.

Brooke: What I need is to figure out why I had that temptation. It still really bothers me. I don’t understand it.

Ridge: I’m sorry, I can’t– I can’t–

Brooke: Oh. No, no. I’m sorry. Really, I’m sorry for disappointing you and I’m sorry for letting you down. I love our life together. You know? I love waking up with you in the morning. Love going to bewith you. I love going to work and coming home with you, and… I just don’t want to… I don’t want to lose this wonderful life that we built together.

Ridge: What are you doing right now? What are you talking about? We’re good. There’s not a single thing that would make me walk out the door.

Brooke: Okay.

Ridge: Okay? Okay.

Liam: So you’re– you’re serious right now? Deacon? Brooke was kissing deacon.

[ Dramatic music ]

Hope: Do you know what douglas meant?

Brooke: He saw me kissing santa?

Hope: On new year’s eve. Why would douglas say that? You know, douglas. He doesn’t really lie.

Brooke: No, he doesn’T.

Hope: So what’s going on, mom? What’s douglas talking about?

Brooke: There’s something I need to tell you about that night.

Hope: Okay.

Brooke: After everybody left, your father came back.

[ Steffy laughing ]

Ridge: What’s so funny?

Steffy: Um… just this interview you did talking about your collection. This one. Right here.

Ridge: I know the interview. I didn’t crack any jokes in that. I don’t know what you’re talking about.

Steffy: Oh, it’s not actually the interview. It’s like, uh, you see this? This uh… this photo right here?

Ridge: Yeah?

Steffy: This serious look? It’s like, “look at me. I’m so amazing–”

Ridge: I’m a serious designer. That’s what I do. It’s just–I’m serious thing.

Steffy: It’s a thing? Yeah? So like, the stoic expression? “I’m so extra.”

Ridge: Right? Whoa, whoa, what about– what about when you take pictures. With everything?

Steffy: Excuse me–

Ridge: What is that? What is that?

Steffy: That is different.

Ridge: You just–you think I look like bill. I don’t look like bill at all.

Steffy: Dad! Don’t even say that, dad.

Ridge: What? You brought it up.

Steffy: You just look a little crazy.

Ridge: There’s nothing crazy about it.

Taylor: Wow! Things are rarely this funny in my line of work! Hi.

Ridge: Well, then you need to quit and come over to the fashion business because apparently there’s nothing nniefu

[ Laughter ]

Taylor: No, you know what, I think I will stick to psychiatry but I’ll tell you what, if I ever want a reason just to laugh or smile, I’m going to stop becbyse nothing makes me happier than seeing the two of you work together like this.

Paris: That was unexpected,.

[ Carter chuckling ]

Carter: Was it, though? Don’t know about you but I’ve been feeling like…

Paris: Something’s building? Yeah. I’ve been feeling it, too.

[ Laughter ]

Taylor: I mean it. It is a beautiful thing seeing the two of you working together, enjoying each other.

Steffy: Well, nothing is more beautiful than having you back in L.A.

Ridge: She’s right. Glad you’re here.

Thomas: Wow, look at the party. Can I join?

Taylor: Hi!

Thomas: Hey, mom!

Ridge: It’s not a party, but yeah, you can join ’cause I want to talk to you.

Thomas: Uh-oh.

Ridge: These guys? Exactly what I wanted. Nice job.

Taylor: Hey!

Steffy: Wow, dad’s blessings on a first try? What has the world come to?

Taylor: This! This is what I missed. This is why I am so thankful I’m home.

Hope: Dad came back?

Brooke: He’d forgotten his phone.

Hope: Wow, okay. So this is– this is new information. But first thing’s first: Did dad… did he get you to drink? Because I’ve been hoping that he’s changed. And if he… tried to somehow talk you into it or did something–

Brooke: Honey, no. No.

Hope: Are you sure? Because he obviously did something, something to make you upset and to ask him to not even come around here anymore. So mom, I really– please tell me. What exactly did my father do? How did olay top expensive creams?

Carter: What do we do now?

Paris: Hopefully another kiss.

Carter: Hopefully. But I meant with zende.

Paris: Okay. I–I care about him. A lot. But he knows I’m not ready for a lifelong commitment right now. That we need freedom in our relationship. He gets it. Like right now, he’s out on a date. Good for him. And good for me. I am here with you.

Carter: So we’re letting this happen? Whatever this is?

Paris: I’m not sure. But whatever it is, I like it.

Steffy: Well, I hate to leave the party but I’m going to be late for a meeting with katie.

Ridge: Quick question: Why do we insist on calling this a party? This is our place of work.

Thomas: Okay, mr. Curmudgeon.

Ridge: I don’t mean– yes, things are a little more festive because your mom’s here but it’s still where we create stuff, right? This is our workplace.

Steffy: Yeah, but we– we could have a little party. We could all have dinner tonight if everyone’s available.

Thomas: Sounds good to me.

Taylor: Yeah–

Steffy: Yeah?

Taylor: You know, I have appointments later, but I can try to reschedule. But I can definitely make it by dessert.

Steffy: Okay, great. Dad?

Ridge: Yeah. Oh, no, I would like that idea, too.

Steffy: But…

Ridge: But I got to check my schedule.

Steffy: Okay. Schedule or brooke? You’re that worried about her, you don’t even want to be away from her. Even if it’s just for an evening?

Brooke: No, no. I started drinking on my own. It had nothing to do with your father. He tried to stop me from drinking and uh, the urge was too great. So I asked him to join me.

Hope: Mom.

Brooke: I know. I don’t know what came over me. It’s really embarrassing.

Hope: So you’re asking him to stay away because you were drinking with him. Mom, are you, uh… you aren’t still drinking, are you?

Brooke: No, honey, I swear.

Hope: Okay. Have you been tempted?

Brooke: Maybe a little bit but certainly nothing like that night and I still don’t know where that temptation came from. It’s just so crazy, you know? I’ve had my drinking under control for so long.

Hope: And you will have it under control again because you have a lot of friends and family loving you and supporting you. Especially ridge. Yeah, he’s been there for you. And you can trust that– that we’ll have your back… right?

Brooke: Right.

Hope: It feels like there’s something…more going on and there is, isn’t there?

Brooke: I–well, I guess it’s why you came up here, right? What douglas saw?

Hope: Yeah, he said he saw you kissing santa. Why would he say that? That’s– that’s crazy. You know, seeing, I dunno, you talking to deacon or laughing with him– now, that would make sense, but this? Seeing you kissing… you were kissing my father. Your skin isn’t just skin.

Carter: You sure, you’re okay with this?

Paris: Whatever this is, I’m more than okay. You?

Carter: Do you even have to ask?

Ridge: Don’t want to talk about, brooke. I’ll let you know about dinner.

Steffy: Okay, well, we’d love to have you. I’m gonna head out to that meeting. Thomas, you ready?

Thomas: Huh?

Steffy: The meeting.

Thomas: Yeah, why I would have to go?

Steffy: Because I’m inviting you.

Thomas: Oh, yeah. Marketing meetings. Love that. Lucky…lucky me. Um…all right. Good seeing you guys. Uh, mom, please stop by more. I enjoy the party.

Steffy: Yeah.

Taylor: Okay.

Thomas: Right behind you.

Taylor: Steffy forrester. Queen of subtle. You know, I– I think she was trying to give us a moment alone.

Hope: Is that what douglas really saw? You and my dad kissing? Look, mom, I–I– I want you to tell me the truth. You know I am a safe place and you can be open and honest with me. What exactly happened on new year’s eve?

Brooke: Your father came back to get his phone and when he found it, he was going to leave again.

Hope: But something stopped him.

Brooke: Well, ridge called.

Hope: Ah. Saying that he couldn’t make it home.

Brooke: Right. And that really disappointed me because i thought it was very important for us to spend that time together on new year’s eve. Really have that time to connect. And when I found out he wouldn’t be here, well, I just grabbed that bottle of vodka and I asked your father to join me.

Hope: I just wish that he had stopped you.

Brooke: He tried. I told you that. But I wouldn’t let him stop me. Once I tasted the vodka, I just wanted more. And I was justifying it. You know, saying it was, “new year’s eve, one night out of the year. There’s no harm.” I convinced myself of that and well, I convinced him too. I mean, at first we were having fun. You know, we were just tipsy and joking around and laughing and we found this hat from christmas. And he put it on.

Hope: A santa hat.

Brooke: Yeah, a santa hat.

Hope: So, when douglas came over… he saw you…

Brooke: Deacon and i were just… reminiscing, honey. We were talking about the good old times and…

[ Brooke sighing ] I don’t know, there was A… kind of a closeness, you know? Just, it felt good. And it… I don’T…. well, we…we kissed. Yeah. Yeah. Your father and I kissed.

Entresto is the number

one heart failure

Taylor: I know that you said you didn’t want to talk about brooke and I respect that, but I am a–I’m a very good listener just in case, you know? I’m just saying.

Ridge: Do I need to make an appointment or?

Taylor: For you? Absolutely. Get in line.

Ridge: Well, I appreciate it. Appreciate you. Thanks for coming home.

Taylor: I knew that I missed being here. I just– I didn’t realize how much. Surrounded by family, our children, our grandchildren. I haven’t been this happy in a long time.

Ridge: You deserve it.

Taylor: I do. I have worked hard to get here. Done a lot of self-exploration. A favorite hobby of mine.

Ridge: Oh, I do remember. Yes.

Taylor: I had to ask myself a lot of really tough questions: Why did I stay away so long? Why was I choosing to miss out on so much time with my family? Working halfway across the world when I should have been there for steffy and thomas.

Ridge: Well, you’re here now. And steffy and thomas, you saw them. They’re–they’re thrilled. I’m smiling.

Taylor: Yeah, I see that smile. You have no idea how happy it makes me–

Ridge: All right, I um… I gotta ask you, these questions you had, did you find answers?

[ Taylor exhaling ]

Taylor: Um, yes? It’s complicated. There’s a lot of reasons that I–I stayed away. But the main one was brooke. Knowing that you have made a life with her… I couldn’t help but think what– what–what could have been, you know, if–if, if sheila hadn’t shot me, if we would have been able to stick together after I made my way back home, remained a family, stay married. I knew we’d always love each other. What we shared will always be there. But I couldn’t– I couldn’t stop thinking about what could have been. The memories we could have made. The life we– we almost had. Oh gosh. I–I should pay you for a session. I’m gonna go.

Ridge: Hey, hey.

Hope: Thankfully, douglas didn’t realize who you were actually kissing.

Brooke: I know. It’s bad enough he thinks I was kissing anybody at all.

Hope: Can’t imagine the guilt you’ve been feeling. I’m really glad that you told me, mom. I–I know this couldn’t have been easy on you but given what you’ve been going through, I need you to take it easy on yourself and try to be forgiving because it was a kiss on new year’s eve. You were drunk. And it was between two people who used to be close at a time.

Brooke: Well, that’s not all, sweetheart.

Hope: Wait, what else happened?

Brooke: Oh. No, no, you’re right, it was just a kiss. But deacon slept here that night.

Hope: What?

[ Brooke sighing ]

Brooke: I was drunk. I was beyond drunk and he thought I was going to pass out on the bathroom floor or something. So he took me upstairs and he put me in bed and he tucked me in. And I don’t know. I don’t really remember. I just remember waking up and he’s there, laying there next to me.

Hope: Are you sure nothing happened, mom?

Brooke: Yes, honey. I was under the covers and he was laying on top of them and we were fully dressed.

Hope: What if ridge had come back home?

Brooke: I know. I– I was desperate to get deacon out of there. And try to clean up the mess and the evidence of the night before. Drinking with deacon and him in my–my bed. Oh, my god.

Hope: No wonder you weren’t acting like yourself. Look, I was trying to figure it out. But…

Brooke: How could I do that? How could I risk losing my marriage, the man that I love so much? Really, what was I thinking? I mean, I’m sure that taylor and steffy are on the sideline somewhere, just waiting for something to happen between ridge and me so they can open their arms and welcome their father back into their sweet, little family! He would never accept this, hope. If he knew that deacon was here and we were alone and drinking. And that we kissed? And he was in my bed– oh, my god, my god. I would lose him. I would lose him forever!

Hope: You saw grandma kissing santa claus.

Liam: And so– so, you keep saying that this is about brooke, but–

Douglas: It’s true. I saw them.

Hope: Well, you have been watching a lot of movies lately. Are you sure you’re not mixing up your holiday films?

Liam: Yeah. Or just that, or the song, even?

Douglas: No! Santa was there and he was kissing grandma.

Ridge: You were alone on new year’s because of me. You weren’t expecting that.

Brooke: There’s no excuse to have done what I did.

Ridge: What did you do? You made a mistake and you regret it.

[Brooke sighs] Yes, I do. I regret it more than you know.

Ridge: Tell me what I can do. I’ll do anything just to make it better.

Brooke: Ridge. You’ve already been so amazing–

Ridge: No, I’ll go to meetings with you. I’ll go to 100 meetings, I’ll go to 1,000 meetings! But we’re in this together, alright? It’s you and me, forever.

Paris: Wow, I forgot your place is immaculate.

Carter: What can I say? I like things organized.

Paris: It’s refreshing. Not your typical sloppy bachelor pad.

> Carter: Well, I am C.O.O. I’m all about order and precision.

Paris: Clearly.

Carter: Yeah. Everything’s gotta be lined up perfectly, which is why we’re here.

Paris: Yes, my financial portfolio.

Carter: Now, we’re just in the early days, so we’re laying the groundwork. But I think you will be pleased with your performance thus far.

Paris: Carter, I have no doubt. I know I’m in good hands with you.

Carter: What are your thoughts?

Paris: I am blown away. I wasn’t expecting such a jump like this!

Carter: You’re building quite the nest egg for yourself.

Paris: Thanks to you. Wow, you really are the financial genius.

Carter: I have experience with investments but I wouldn’t go that far.

Paris: Okay, don’t be modest, carter. Seriously, your support and encouragement means the world to me. And I’m so thankful for everything you’re doing, not just financially.

Ridge: I’m your husband. I’ll always be here for you.

Brooke: How did I get so lucky? To have a man like you.

Ridge: I don’t know. I’m going to tell you something but you gotta promise me not to use it against me. I need you a lot more than you need me.

Brooke: Oh, ridge. I created another issue for us. And uh… on top of everything else. So I really don’t know how you can even put up with me.

Ridge: I made a commitment to this gorgeous, blonde woman. For better or for worse. We promised to stay loyal to each other, so that’s what we’re doing. We’re going to deal with this as a couple.

Brooke: Yeah. I hope so.

Ridge: You hope so? What are you, nuts? Look at us. Strength in numbers, we got this. I’m not going anywhere.

Hope: Oh, liam and i are a little thrown off because you keep saying that you saw grandma kissing…

Douglas: The man in the red and white hat.

Hope: On new year’s eve?

Douglas: Yes.

Liam: Okay. And you’re– and you’re sure this wasn’t christmas eve because christmas eve is when santa comes.

Douglas: No.

Hope: So it was the night when we had all that yummy food and had the party hats and the noisemakers…

Liam: And they were talking about how the clock strikes midnight. That night?

Douglas: I’m sorry, mommy.

Hope: For what, sweetie?

Douglas: Liam told me not to go up to the house to find my stuffed bunny but I needed him to fall asleep. And then that’s when I saw grandma kissing santa. When they’re sick, they get comfortable anywhere

[Paris sighs] You have been so incredible to me, carter.

Carter: You’re easy to root for.

Paris: No, but you’ve gone above and beyond. It’s not about just the investment stuff or even hooking me up with this job.

Carter: Paris, forrester creations should be thanking you. You’re the perfect fit to run the foundation.

Paris: And I am loving it.

Carter: You seem really happy.

Paris: No, I just don’t know what I would do without your guidance. Not just about the foundation but with zende. I mean, you’ve been very spot on.

Carter: You’re not ready, you’re not ready.

Paris: And you know what makes me realize that I’m not ready for marriage?

Carter: What?

Paris: When I look at you and I can’t stop thinking about our kiss.

Carter: Yeah, that was– that was quite the new year’s surprise.

Paris: And I could say we both got caught up in the moment but I feel like there’s something that’s been building up between us for a long time now. And that’s one of the reasons why I couldn’t fully commit to zende. And here we are, you and me and I… I like it.

Carter: I like it, too.

Brooke: It’s a total mystery why I lost all willpower to stay sober that night. And it just hit me out of nowhere, and I know I keep saying that, but–

Ridge: I know you want to figure out what happened but there is a chance that you won’t figure it out and that’s gotta be okay.

Brooke: But I need to know what the trigger was. I– I really think that that was important. And I’ve been sober for so many years and out of nowhere I just had the urge to drink.

[Sighs] I wish I could go back and erase that night and do it all over again.

Ridge: If I’d been here, it would’ve all been different.

Brooke: I wish you were here with me, more than you even know.

Hope: So you went up to the house all by yourself to get your stuffed bunny?

Douglas: I hope I’m not in trouble.

Hope: Well, douglas, you shouldn’t have been sneaking around the property after dark by yourself and especially without telling someone. Please promise me that you will never, ever, ever do that again. Okay? But we’re not mad at you.

Liam: No.

Douglas: But you’re worried about something.

Liam: Um, no. No, we’re not. Not, not necessarily. We’re just– we’re just kind of trying to figure out what’s– what’s going on here. We do know that grandma didn’t go right to sleep that night.

Douglas: Are you upset because I saw grandma with santa?

Hope: No! No. We’re just trying to figure out how that’s possible.

Liam: Yeah, I mean, because, you know, maybe– uh, maybe you got some of the days confused because, you know, there’s a lot going on during the holidays, right?

Hope: Oh, and we did have a lot of guests going in and out of the house. A lot of people visiting. And you remember it was christmas eve when santa came down the chimney and gave all those presents–

Liam: And you know something. And I confuse christmas eve and new year’s eve all the time. Always get ’em jumbled up.

Douglas: No, it was new year’s eve.

Liam: Uh-huh.

Hope: Okay, well, you– you seem pretty sure about what happened, so I’m going to need you to tell me everything again. So, everything that you remember about that night.

Paris: Part of me felt a little guilty about our kiss.

Carter: Same.

Paris: I know it definitely wasn’t something that you were expecting.

Carter: No, I was at the office. I fully accepted to ring in the new year alone and not kiss anybody.

Paris: Yeah, I kind of threw a wrench in your plans.

Carter: Kind of.

Paris: I mean, it was the biggest party night of the year. You know, I thought you can have a little fun.

Carter: I didn’t say I wasn’t glad to see you.

Paris: Well, when I showed up, I just wanted to thank you for tipping me off about zende’s proposal and then–

Paris: I might have got a little caught up?

Carter: Yeah, we both did.

Paris: And part of me felt bad about the timing but now the circumstances have changed. Zende’s out with a model and I’m here with you…

Carter: You said you can’t get that kiss out of your mind. Neither can I.

Brooke: Ridge, I don’t want you feeling guilty for not being here for me.

Ridge: I shouldn’t have left in the first place.

Brooke: You had to travel–

Ridge: No, no, no. I didn’t have to travel at all. I didn’t have to go. I wanted to go because i wanted to be part of it, I wanted to be the big star. That’s why I left.

Brooke: If I had an inkling that I was going to be in jeopardy, I would have communicated–

Ridge: You are my person. You’re my wife, I should be connected to you. I should– I should know when you’re struggling.

Brooke: Ridge, you haven’t had to worry about me in so long. In years, actually. You couldn’t have predicted this.

Ridge: I just want to take your pain away and I can’t do it.

Brooke: Nobody can. I have to want to make better decisions. And I do. I never want what happened to ever happen again.

Ridge: And I– I will try to be more intuitive, to be… to be here, to be present, I will try.

Brooke: Oh, ridge. I’m the one who’s ashamed for–

Ridge: Stop saying that, please. You made a mistake. And you came clean. You– you told me everything. And that honesty just– I don’t know, it makes me want to be a better person for you. I love you so much.

Hope: Nobody’s upset with you. We just want a better understanding of what you saw that night.

Liam: Yeah. Like, can you give us some… can you give us any more details, big or small, whatever you can remember, anything.

Douglas: Well… I couldn’t sleep without my stuffed bunny. So, I snuck out on a walk went up to the big house. When I reached the living room window, I peaked in. And that’s when I saw it. Grandma kissing santa.

Liam: Uh-huh. Okay. And, um… did you see santa’s face?

Douglas: Not really. Just his hat.

Liam: Did– did grandma or– or anyone else see you?

Douglas: No, nobody saw me.

Hope: Well, douglas, I have to ask, and this does not mean that we don’t believe you but, you have a really great imagination.

Liam: Just– yeah, and– and you know, sometimes dreams can get kind of mixed up with real life, right?

>>Douglas: No. I swear it’s true. I really saw it happen.

Liam: Well, yeah. Okay.

Hope: Okay. Thank you for telling us.

Liam: Yeah. And good job remembering all those, all those details. That was great.

Hope: Yeah. Now don’t we have some homework to do? Hm?

Douglas: Bye, mommy.

Hope: Alright.

Liam: I’ll come check with you in a minute.

[Door closes] What the hell was that? What could he possibly be talking about?

Hope: I don’t know. Who’s to say? I mean, we know ridge didn’t get here until the following day.

Liam: I know. Which raises the question, what– or I guess, who could douglas have seen that night?

Hope: Well, the only way to know for sure is to have a conversation with my mother. Your kindness outshines your highs and lows.

Paris: This… could get complicated.

Carter: I know.

Douglas: Liam?

Liam: ‘Sup, dude?

Douglas: I was trying to do more homework.

Liam: Well, you let me know if you need any help because you are looking at the 1994 spelling bee champion of– hey. What’s going on?

[Douglas sighs] I just can’t stop thinking about what I told you and mommy.

Liam: About that night?

Douglas: I hope you’re not disappointed in me.

Liam: Disappoin– oh, my god. No, absolutely not. We are not disappointed. We are so, so happy and so proud that you came to us and you told us everything. And the last thing that we want is for you to feel anxious about it. Okay?

Douglas: Where’s mommy?

Liam: Uh, she’s having a little chat with grandma.

Douglas: Is mom going to tell grandma that i saw her kissing santa?

Hope: Mom!

Brooke: Oh! God, honey. You startled me.

Hope: Oh, is everything alright? Is… is ridge home?

Brooke: Uh, no. Ridge is at the office but everything’s fine. Thank you for checking on me. I really do appreciate your love and support.

Hope: Well, you know, I– I will always be here for you. Uh, but I do have a question about uh, that night. You did come clean to ridge and me about everything. Right?

Brooke: Are you okay, sweetheart?

Hope: Yeah. Yeah, it’s just that liam and i had a conversation with douglas just now about new year’s eve and– and while we were celebrating that night, he actually forgot his favorite stuffed animal up here.

Brooke: Oh! I haven’t seen it. But I’ll look around and as soon as I do, I’ll just run it down there.

Hope: That’s– that’s actually not the point. Liam that night told him that he was not allowed to come back up here to look for it, but he ignored that and he snuck back up here anyway.

Brooke: He did?

Hope: Yeah, he did. So is there anything that maybe… he shouldn’t have seen?

Brooke: What do you mean?

Hope: Well, it’s just, you know, when he snuck up here, douglas looked through those windows and he saw… you.

Brooke: He didn’t see me drinking, did he?

Hope: No, no. Thankfully, he didn’t mention anything about that.

Brooke: Oh, okay, good. I wouldn’t know how to explain that to my grandson.

Hope: Hm. Well, it’s something that he’s actually been very insistent about for the past few weeks. But liam and I have just, kind of dismissed it because we didn’t fully understand it. And I am not sure we do even now.

Brooke: What is it?

Hope: I wish there was an easier way to just come out and say this. And liam and I, we really did make sure that douglas was 100% certain of this but–

Brooke: About?

Hope: Douglas said he saw you… he saw you kissing santa claus.

Brooke: What?

Hope: He’s 100% sure. He insists that it’s the truth. But he says that he saw you kissing a man in a red and white hat.

Brooke: Oh, oh, my god.

Hope: Did something happen? Mom. If something happened, you need to tell me because we both know that ridge was not home that night. He was still off at work, so– so what happened, mom? Mom, answer me, please.

[ Relaxing music ]

Hope: You know, I could get used to you working from home.

Liam: That was nice. Well, yeah, with my dad out of town, I figured I’d take advantage. Although, it’s been quiet around here, right?

Hope: Well, douglas is doing homework in his room and beth is at her playdate. Actually, are you going to be here for a bit? Because I would like to go check in on my mom.

Liam: Oh yeah. No, no, no. Go. By all means. I know your mom’s ah… facing some challenges since new year’s, so.

Hope: Drinking that night really…really broke her spirit. I am worried about her.

Ridge: Hey. Are you still thinking about taylor? The way she showed up here.

Brooke: I certainly didn’t expect to be answering questions about my well being.

Ridge: So, you don’t believe in her good intentions?

Brooke: I don’t know. I mean, I guess she was genuinely concerned. It was just…unnerving.

Sheila: What–what just happened?

Taylor: You tell me.

Sheila: Well, the vibe in here suddenly shifted, and you’re looking at me like that.

Taylor: Do you want to tell me why you’re so interested in brooke?

Carter: That’s a little strange.

Paris: What?

Carter: I feel like you always have a smile on your face. You have been frowning for like five minutes.

Paris: Have I?

Carter: Seems like you’re deep in thought.

Paris: Yeah, I am a little, I guess.

Carter: About?

Paris: Zende and sequoyah are going out tonight.

Carter: Isn’t that what you wanted? For you guys to be free to see other people. Don’t you want that anymore?

Paris: Everything I said to zende still stands. I’m way too young to be committed like that.

Carter: But?

Paris: I think I was just caught off guard. Walking in on him making plans with someone else. A drop dead, gorgeous model at that.

Carter: I understand.

Paris: Really? And maybe you can help me understand it.

Carter: You’re jealous. You still care about zende.

Taylor: It’s a pretty straightforward question. Why are you so stuck on brooke?

Sheila: I really–I wouldn’t say that I am. I’ve been out of the loop for so long. I–I’m just trying to fit back in so that I can be a part of finn and hayes’s lives. And brooke… happens to be married to hayes’s grandfather.

Taylor: I hope that’s true. I would hate to see you getting obsessed with brooke again.

Hope: Mom’s been really hard on herself. And I just–I’m not sure what to do to help her feel better.

Liam: Well, I don’t know either, but I know your love and support goes a long way.

Hope: I hope so because it’s really all I have. I just–I should go check in.

Liam: Yeah, no. Yeah, I’ll hold down the fort and you… just go be who you are. A loving, caring daughter.

Hope: Just it bothers me, not understanding what it was about that night that triggered her urge to drink.

Brooke: I guess I’m just naive. Thought my desire to drink was behind me.

Ridge: People slip. That’s what meetings are for, right? To help you get back up. You’re doing everything you can. Most important thing is being honest with everybody about what happened that night. (Girl) hey guys, family hike starts… now!

Paris: Zende is a great guy. And we have so much fun together. And we just vibe so easily together. But he thought I was right there with him, ready to walk down the aisle as mr. And mrs., But I’m just not ready. And once you gave me the heads up about the proposal, there were only two options: Turn him down or head him off.

Carter: Makes sense. So, you’re not questioning your decision to keep things casual with zende?

Paris: Oh no. I think… I think I made the best choice for where I am in my life right now. For the both of us. I mean, if zende is looking to be serious with someone, he deserves a woman who wants the same thing. A woman who is as into him as he is into her. There was always something imbalanced about our relationship. I just didn’t think it mattered because we were just dating. Does that make me a bad person?

Carter: Yes. I’m joking.

Paris: Oh.

Carter: No, it doesn’t paris. You’re a beautiful person. You’re just trying to be honest with your feelings. Can’t ask for more than that.

Sheila: I totally understand why you would question my motives. But I…have changed, taylor. I mean, haven’t we all, really? When you’re young, you think that the world owes you everything. That you’re entitled to whatever you want. And that it’s okay to do whatever you have to do to make that happen, regardless of who you hurt. And then time takes a hard look at you and it beats you down. And it takes away what’s most important in life, and it humbles you. And you have to be. Listen to me, here I am explaining the human condition to one of the world’s most renowned psychiatrists. I’m just going to stop. Okay? But I say what I say because I have taken hard knocks and I’ve learned things, like what’s really important in life and that is your family. So now you don’t need to be concerned that I am obsessed with brooke. I just want to prove myself so that I can spend time with my son and my grandson.

Taylor: Oh, I want to believe you, sheila. I really do. But I am still gauging, assessing the situation. I hope that you’re telling the truth and that you have changed. For your sake and for my family’s as well. It would make things a lot less complicated if we could trust your intentions.

Sheila: I so appreciate you, taylor. And your willingness to let me prove myself. I just wish brooke would do the same.

Liam: Ah, doug the daring. You finish your homework?

Douglas: Yep. Where’s mom?

Liam: Oh, she’s up seeing grandma.

Douglas: I saw grandma kissing santa claus.

Ridge: Falling off the wagon is not permanent. You got to climb back on and… stay on. One moment at a time. One day at a time. That’s how it works, right? But I went from zero to 60. In one minute, I was drinking non-alcoholic champagne and the next I was doing vodka shots. And I don’t even remember the moment in between where I possibly could have stopped myself. It doesn’t make sense.

Ridge: It’s not supposed to make sense. It’s an impulse.

Brooke: But why? I haven’t even thought about alcohol, I don’t care when people drink around me. So, what would make this impulse happen? I have no idea.

Ridge: I don’t know either. Something triggered you. We may never find out what it was. Most important thing is you doing the work, right? That’s all you can do.

Brooke: Are you disappointed in me?

Ridge: No. Not one bit.

Brooke: Well, you should be. I’m disappointed in myself. Maybe you should give yourself some credit.

Hope: I actually agree with ridge. Mom, you’ve taken responsibility for everything that happened on new year’s eve. And not keeping it a secret has helped get things back on track. And that and accepting help from the people who love you most. Napoleon was born and raised to conquer.

Carter: Oh. What did I do to desrve that smile?

Paris: Because…you care and you’re supportive. And I–I just really appreciate that.

Carter: Well, don’t tell anyonebut , m one of your biggest fans.

Paris: Oh, and you have been. From the start. Right away, you saw something in me that was worth taking a chance on. Because of you, a door open for me here at forrester. Literally changed my life.

Carter: I’m glad I follow my instincts about you, paris. For reasons both professional and personal.

Paris: Personal?

Carter: I like having you in my life. You’re different.

Paris: Oh. Is that good or bad?

Carter: It’s excellent. I don’t know, you– you intrigued me. I’ve never met someone like you. You know you… you don’t disappoint paris. You’re endlessly fascinating.

Paris: Wow. Thank you.

Carter: Just keeping it real.-Paris: You know… the more I sit with it, the more I believe it’s best for zende to enjoy his freedom.

Carter: Why do you say that?

Paris: To be honest, I can’t stop thinking about our kiss.

Carter: To be honest. I can’t stop thinking about it either.

Sheila: Look, I’m sorry. It is just that brooke is so high and mighty. Talk about hypocrisy. I mean, judging me so harshly and being so unforgiving. It’s like she’s never made a mistake in her life. Or that there’s nothing horrible that she regrets. It’s just I thought you of all people would be annoyed by brooke, just as much as I am.

Hope: In the past, you had lived with your alcoholism alone, for a very long time before any of us knew there was a problem. And that makes it that much harder to ask for help.

Brooke: I was in denial. And then I was ashamed.

Hope: Well, that’s not what is happening here. Mom, you slipped up and you immediately went to a meeting, you called your sponsor and you let ridge and I know about what happened that night. I mean, taking responsibility, that’s half the battle. And keeping it a secret would eat anyone up from the inside.

Ridge: She’right.

Hope: Please, mom, you don’t have to worry. There’s no judgment here.

Ridge: We got you.

Hope: No matter what. There is nothing here but love and support, okay? Love you.

Douglas: I saw grandma kissing santa claus.

Liam: So, buddy. You’ve said that a few times now. Is that like your favorite song this year? Because it’s mommy, I saw mommy.

Douglas: Not the song. I saw grandma kissing santa, for real.

Liam: Oh. Oh, well. Well, when was that? Was that– was it christmas eve?

Douglas: No, new year’s eve.

(Ziploc bag opening) But taylor? You would think should be eager to spill the tea, even with me. I just need to know if she fell into the trap that I set. Now your day of reckoning is coming, brooke. You trust and believe because it’s coming soon.

Ridge: You’re the most remarkable woman I’ve ever known.

Brooke: How can you say that? I’m anything but.

Ridge: At times, you’re a little hard on yourself.

Brooke: Not hard enough.

Ridge: You slipped. It was new year’s and I wasn’t there. And you’re taking all the right steps. You want to get back to where you were. And you say you feel shame, but you shouldn’T. You could have hidden this from me, and you didn’T. You shared with me, with your daughter. Every intimate detail of what happened that night. I’m so proud of you.

Brooke: Drink it up.

Douglas: I saw grandma kissing santa. I did. I swear.

Liam: Okay. All right. Well, I know that’s what you think you saw.

Douglas: I didn’t think it. I saw it. Grandma was kissing santa. Maybe he came back to bring her a present and maybe she was thanking him.

Liam: So–

Hope: Everything okay?

Liam: Yeah, yeah. It’s good. It’s good. It’s just, um… okay. So, you know how douglas has been saying, I saw grandma kissing santa claus lately.

Hope: Sweetie, you’re– you’re misremembering the song. It’s I saw mommy kissing santa claus.

Liam: So yes–

Hope: Not grandma.

Liam: That’s what I said. But I don’t think he’s talking about the song. He says he’s talking about brooke.

Hope: I don’t understand.

Liam: I don’t know. I think maybe douglas is trying to tell us something.

Hope: So, something happened and you saw grandma kissing santa claus?

Douglas: Yes.

Hope: Was this on christmas eve or christmas?

Douglas: New year’s eve.

Hope: And where did you see that?

Douglas: At her house. It was at night.

Liam: Um. Well, I don’t know why you were up there, because I distinctly remember telling you not to go up to the house, right?

Douglas: I know, I’m sorry, but it was only for a minute so I can go get my stuffed bunny. Am I in trouble?

Liam: No, you’re– no, you’re not in trouble, and we’re going to deal with that later. I’m just so happy you’re being honest with us. So just–just um–just– yeah, tell us what happened.

Douglas: Well, I walked up to the living room window, and that’s when I saw it.

Hope: So, you saw grandma kissing someone?

Douglas: Yes, santa.

[ Dramatic music ]

Brooke: Oh, god.

Brooke: Oh, I–

[ Brooke laughing ]

[ Knocking on door ]

Brooke: Taylor?

Taylor: Hi, brooke.

Brooke: Ridge isn’t here. He’s at the office.

Taylor: Yes, I know. I know that. I’m here to see you.

Sheila: Brooke, brooke, brooke. What happened on new year’s eve? Did my champagne switch work? Hm. Has the all high and mighty brooke logan taken a swan dive off of her high horse? I guess it certainly would serve her right for threatening me. Using her influence over a bridge to keep me away from my son.

Ridge: Wow, you really went above and beyond on this, max.

Max: Thank you. Carter told me you wanted the contract locked down this quarter. I deliver.

Carter: I got to say, man, I did not expect you to get it done qui so fast.

Max: Well, apparently the suppliers find me a lot more persuasive than you do. You know, I’ve been trying to get carter to go out with the guys.

Ridge: I–

Carter: I’m not blowing you off. I’ve been…busy.

Max: Yeah, I’ve heard that excuse before. Come on, man. You’ve been on the sidelines ever since you broke off your engagement. You got to get back in the game.

Ridge: Yeah, carter. Why aren’t you back in the game? What is that? You’re not ready? Or you’ve got your eye on somebody already?

Zende: I know this is taking a while. I need to get this…right. I think we’re almost there.

Sequoyah: I don’t mind at all, zende. In fact, I was thinking I’d like to spend more time with you. Outside of work. Maybe we can get a drink tonight?

Zende: Get a drink?

Paris: We’re so lucky.

We’re young and single,

and we don’t have stuff

tying us down.

Sequoyah: If you can’t, it’s okay. I just thought–

Zende: Yes. Drinks tonight sound great. I’d like that.

Sequoyah: Me too. It’s a date.

Zende: Yeah. Yeah. .Paris: Hey, sequoyah, zende.

Zende: Paris… hey.

Paris: Did I just hear you guys are going out tonight?

Max: Wait. Is ridge right? You’ve been holding out on us. You’ve got your eye on someone?

Max: Invite her to join us. Tell her to bring her friends.

Ridge: Unless he wants to keep her secret.

Carter: Guys, guys. There isn’t anyone. I’m not involved with anybody.

Max: Then come out with us, man. You can meet someone. Ridge, help me out with this. In fact, you can come too.

Ridge. No, no.

Max: I know you got your missus all set, but we could use a wingman.

Ridge: I’m not–

Carter: Wingman?

Max: Carter. It’s time. There are so many gorgeous women and interesting women in los angeles. Heck, there’s so many gorgeous and interesting women right here at forrester creations.

Carter: I’m well aware of that, max.

Max: Good. We’re going to bikini tonight. I’ll text you the details. All right? Ridge, please talk some sense into this guy. All right?

Ridge: Okay.

Max: Carter, don’t back out, either.

[ Carter sighing ]

Zende: Thanks sequoyah. I’ll find you later.

Sequoyah: You better.

Paris: You and sequouyah are going out tonight?

Zende: She asked me to get drinks.

Paris: You said yes.

Zende: I wasn’t going to. But then I thought about everything you said on new year’S. I don’t know where we stand right now, paris, but you made it clear that you’re not ready to be serious. Am I wrong about that?

Sheila: Deacon could have told me what happened on new year’s eve, but he didn’t, why? What could have happened that he can’t even risk me getting a hint of it? What did you do, brooke? What did you do that nobody can know about?

Brooke: So, what did you want to see me about?

Taylor: Well, I’ve been thinking about our conversation. You said that there was no reason that we should be at odds. One day we could even be friends.

Brooke: I remember.

Taylor: So, I’m here as a friend, brooke. I just–I want you to know that.

Brooke: Are you sure this is a friendly visit?

Taylor: I–I spoke with hope. And steffy talked to ridge. They’re both very concerned about you. There’s something weighing on you. Everyone who cares about you can see it. I just–I wanted to come by and see how you were doing. Offer my help. When they’re sick, they get comfortable anywhere

Ridge: Are you going to take max up on his offer?

Carter: Maybe another time.

Ridge: Might be a good time to get back out there.

Carter: I’m in no hurry.

Ridge: Why is that? You like being alone? Or you got your mind on somebody else? Like quinn.

Carter: No.

Ridge: You’re not thinking about her?

Carter: No, ridge. I gave you my word. Never betray eric like that again.

Ridge: That’s not what I asked you.

Carter: Am I thinking about quinn? Less and less. I’m determined to be the guy you thought I was. So right now, I just want my life to be simple, uncomplicated.

Ridge: That’s simplE. Don’t get involved with women that are already involved with someone else.

Zende: New year’s eve, you told me that you wanted to be single. That you’re not ready for anything serious. Now, you’re asking me about my plans with sequoyah.

Paris: Yeah, I–I shouldn’t have done that. I was just surprised.

Zende: That’s it? Surprised?

Paris: I meant what I said. We need to have more experiences, be young and free. You obviously heard me.

Zende: Ah, I did.

Paris: I’m sorry if you feel let down.

Zende: No. I’m glad you were honest with me. I understand where you’re coming from.

Sheila: Deacon is a dead end because he is always going to protect brooke. There’s got to be somebody just as interested in what’s going on in her life. Taylor.

Taylor: I understand if you’re not comfortable opening up to me. But I do want to help. I told hope the same thing. I don’t know if she mentioned that to you.

Brooke: No, I haven’t seen her today. I’ve been working from home.

Taylor: Are you– are you feeling okay?

Brooke: Yeah, I’m– I’m fine.

Taylor: Really? I– you know, hope implied that you and ridge were having a hard time. And steffy and thomas said that you haven’t been coming into the office.

Brooke: Oh. Oh? I don’t know if I really like the fact that everybody’s talking about me.

Taylor: You know, I realize that having deacon back in town has been very challenging for you and ridge. That’s it, isn’t it? That’s why your family’s so concerned. Oh, brooke. Ah, we all have things in our past that we’re not proud of. And when you’re confronted with them… they can be upsetting. I’m right, aren’t I? Whatever’s troubling you involves deacon. I’m amber.

Paris: I don’t want you thinking that I want to stop seeing you. We have an amazing time together. You’re smart, you’re caring, romantic. And I never have to question your feelings for me. You’re genuine and open. And whenever we are together, you’re totally present, and I never take that for granted.

Zende: I feel the same way about you. But I get it. You’re not… ready to be tied down.

Paris: Look. I can’t be greedy and keep you all to myself.

Zende: So, you good with this?

Paris: I want you to be happy. So, you and sequoyah go out, have fun.

Zende: Yeah?

Paris: Yeah. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to hear about it tomorrow. But yeah. It’s all right.

Zende: We can still care about each other and not the exclusive.

Paris: Absolutely.

Zende: I nted you to know that my plans have not completely changed. I still see a future with you in it, paris. And it may be ten years from now. But someday, I’m going to make you my wife.

Paris: And I’d be the luckiest girl in the world.

Taylor: Brooke, I’m a psychiatrist. I help people. So, I’m offering to help you.

Brooke: I appreciate that, but I have a wonderful support system of my own.

Taylor: Fair enough. If you…feel like you want to talk to someone outside your immediate family, I’m here.

Brooke: My family is my foundation. And I just want to make them proud.

Ridge: Taylor?

Taylor: Hi. I just came by to check on brooke.

Ridge: Right.

Brooke: I told her everything is fine.

Taylor: Yeah. Yes, she did. I hope that’s true. If you ever feel like you want additional support, I’m here.

Ridge: That’s very kind. I think brooke knows what she needs.

Taylor: My door is open.

Brooke: Thank you.

Ridge: I’ll walk you out.

Taylor: No need. I’ll see you soon.

[ Brooke sighing ]

Ridge: You okay? Take a breath. I think taylor offered to help because she felt you could benefit from it. And I know, you got your meetings and your sobriety but– and I know you don’t want to share this with anyone. It’s obvious to me you’re still struggling with what happened on new year’S.

Why burn a candle

when you can switch

Carter: Paris?

Paris: Oh, carter. You snuck up on me.

Carter: I could have come in here blowing a trumpet and I don’t think you would have noticed. Is everything okay?

Paris: Yeah.

Carter: Remember what I said, you can… talk to me.

[ Paris sighing ]

Paris: It’s not a big deal. Or, at least it shouldn’t be. Zende and sequoyah were working in here earlier.

Carter: The model?

Paris: Yeah. She’s beautiful. They were making plans. They’re going to go get drinks later.

Carter: Like a date?

Paris: Yeah. She asked him out and zande said yes.

Carter: And you didn’t expect that?

Paris: I should have. Zende’s a catch. Of course, he’s going to have women asking him out.

Carter: Well, yeah. If you guys aren’t exclusive, he probably will.

Paris: And that’s what I wanted, to loosen things up. To give each other room to enjoy our freedom.

Carter: Did you guys discuss it?

Paris: We did. It was a good conversation.

Carter: But?

[ Paris sighing ]

Paris: I don’t know. I just needed some time to process it. But now that I’m seeing you, I feel a lot better.

Carter: Paris–

Paris: I’m–I’m just being honest. You’ve been a really good friend. But ever since new year’s, things have been feeling different.

[ Paris sighing ] I just can’t stop thinking about it, carter. What happened between us, our kiss.

[ Knocking on door ]

Taylor: Oh, come on in. Hey, audrey, I’m glad you’re back. I need you to run this–

Sheila: Actually… she wasn’t sitting at her desk.

Taylor: Sheila. We talked about this.

Sheila: I know. I know. Don’t show up unannounced. But I did knock at this time.

Taylor: What brings you by?

Sheila: Well… I just can’t stop thinking about you, taylor and christmas eve. Seeing you with the kids and the grandkids. It is so obvious how loved you are. And that struck me as a shame that you’d been separated for so long. That kind of thing affects me.

Taylor: I can imagine it would.

Sheila: So, I was just wondering how you are, at being back?

Taylor: I’m settling in.

Sheila: With finn and steffy? How wonderful is that. Boy, I hope you’re enjoying your time with the two of them.

Taylor: Yes, sheila, if you’re about to ask me to help you make an in-roads with them–

Sheila: No, no, no, no, no, no. Now I just– I overheard you and steffy christmas eve. When she told you how she really missed you and ridge being together.

Taylor: It is true, she does.

Sheila: Must be difficult to hear, especially now. When you’re finally home. Have the opportunity to reunite your family and… I can only assume that brooke isn’t letting ridge see too much of you.

Taylor: Sheila, where are you going with this?

Sheila: It just doesn’t seem fair. That’s all. And you being gone all these years and, and doing amazing work all over the world. And coming back to los angeles and running up against the same brick wall, brooke. I don’t know what’s going on with her. I don’t know what her relationship is like with ridge right now, especially with deacon back in the picture. And then here you are, home. And it’s got to be causing brooke some stress. Lord knows she doesn’t deal well with stress. How does she seem to you?

Ridge: Taylor really rattled you, huh?

Brooke: Oh, I just hate keeping secrets.

Ridge: Well, she’s a professional. I think she’d understand.

Brooke: No. No.

Ridge: Okay. You don’t want anyone else to know about your drinking. I get it. But you don’t need to be ashamed.

Brooke: But I am ridge. I am ashamed and I’m embarrassed. I’m disappointed in myself. And I’m really confused.

Ridge: Well, then maybe we’ll make sense to talk to somebody.

Brooke: No. No. It wouldn’t make sense because I can’t even explain it. I was sober for so many years and I was happy. I didn’t even think about drinking. And then– my behavior didn’t make sense that night.

Ridge: So, maybe what we should do is focus on what does make sense. Your commitment to yourself, sobriety, your commitment to me, the love we have. It’s pretty cool. Whatever happened, I’ve already… moved past it. I’m already in the future, with you. And I get that you don’t want her to know what happened on new year’s eve. All right. It’ll be our little secret.

Brooke: Okay.

Ridge: What do you think of that?

Brooke: Yeah.

Ridge: Yeah?

Brooke: Yeah.

[ Brooke giggling ]

Ridge: I love you.

Brooke: I love you.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Deacon: I love you, brooke. I know it makes you uncomfortable–

Brooke: What makes me uncomfortable is you showing up here after I told you never to come here again.

Deacon: I couldn’t stay away. I had to tell you how I felt.

Brooke: I don’t want to know how you feel, deacon. I just want you to leave.

Deacon: I don’t think you do.

Brooke: What?

Deacon: I don’t think you really want me to leave. I just think that you’re afraid of what might happen if I stay.

Thomas: Look, we’re not trying to guilt trip you, dad. We have just seen you through enough of brooke’s scandals throughout the years.

Steffy: Yeah, we don’t want history to repeat itself. To have you get caught up in the fallout. Deacon has slithered his way back into hope’s life. And that should have sent up a bunch of red flags to brooke.

Ridge: It did.

Thomas: Yeah, right, for like a nanosecond. But now brooke’s back to thinking deacon’s not a bad guy anymore? I don’t get it. Like, does he still have some kind of hold on her?

Steffy: Hope we get. Deacon’s her father. But deacon has nothing to do with brooke, or he shouldn’T.

Thomas: Yeah. So why is brooke treating deacon like he still is something to her?

Hope: You know, I love our little family but sometimes it is nice to get work done without all the extra noise.

[Liam chuckles] Yeah, it is.

Hope: But maybe we could take a break with a little foot rub.

Liam: Ahh…

[Chuckling] Yeah, I suppose we can. Well, this is kind of nice, right? No kids, no ridge. No, brooke. Even deacon hasn’t been around that much lately, which actually– that is kind of odd, right? I’m not– I’m not complaining but I’m pretty sure deacon’s been mia since… since he came to talk to me on new year’S.

Liam: So any idea why deacon might be keeping his distance?

Hope: I might, but hopefully it’s just because he’s busy with his new job.

Liam: So busy he can’t just like text you or make a quick phone call to check in?

Hope: You think something’s happened to him?

Liam: No, no, because it’s deacon. I mean, he’s more than capable of taking care of himself. It’s just…

Hope: It’s just that you miss having him around.

Liam: Oka–alright. Relax. Let’s not go that far.

Hope: No, I– I do appreciate how supportive you’ve– you’re trying to be supportive of me wanting a relationship with my father.

Liam: Yeah. Well, the truth is, he’s made it pretty easy. I mean, if– if deacon is still the same old guy at least he’s been on his best behavior since he came to town. And really, you know, let’s be honest, my concern is always just for you. I don’t want him to hurt you and then you get disappointed again.

Hope: Hopefully he won’T. But if anything, he’s proven how caring and protective he can be.

Liam: Yeah, but the last time you saw him was new year’s and you haven’t heard a peep since then. Right? I just– I don’t know. I hope that doesn’t mean deacon’s back to his old ways.

Thomas: Look, dad, we’re not trying to undermine things between you and brooke.

Steffy: But clearly something’s going on between you and your wife. And it’s affecting you and it makes us worry,.

Ridge: Okay. I’m grateful you’re concerned, I really am. But brooke and I, our relationship is great, just like our relationship is great. We love each other, right? Doesn’t matter who I’m married to. And maybe your mother showing up is the reason for all of this. I’m not sure. But brooke is my wife and there’s nothing that’s going to change that.

Brooke: Oh, my god, you just won’t quit.

Deacon: Can you deny that I’m wrong? That there isn’t something still between us? Brooke, that that kiss new year’s eve–

Brooke: It’s not like you’re making it out to be. If I was sober, if I was in my right mind–

Deacon: What? What? You– you wouldn’t have given in? You would’ve– you would’ve fought harder to stop what was happening?

Brooke: Nothing was happening. That’s what I’m trying to get through your thick skull! It was the alcohol, deacon.

Deacon: Okay, fine. Fine. The booze was definitely part of it. But brooke, there was more to it than that–

Brooke: No.

Deacon: Can you just admit to yourself that–

Brooke: There is nothing to admit.

Deacon: It’s like you need to convince yourself so hard. I don’t understand it. When our lips met, I felt it. Something chemical, something magical like it was all those years ago. It’s like, there’s this force. It’s– it’s pushing us together. I can’t explain it but that’s how it feels. Like neither one of us are in control. And that we may never be in control again.

Liam: I’m still kind of curious about what’s keeping deacon away.

Hope: Actually, I might know why or at least a part of it.

[Sighs] My mom told my dad that she doesn’t want him around anymore.

Liam: Uh…& wha– way to bury the lead. What– why? Why would brooke do that?

> Hope: I don’t know. I don’t know. I’m– I’m trying to figure that out for myself. But she just keeps saying that it’s okay for him to be in my life. She just doesn’t want him in hers.

Liam: Jeez. I mean, talk about an about face. Do you think ridge finally got through to brooke and that’s why deacon’s on the outs?

Hope: I– I can’t say. I just– I’m sure we’ll find out what’s really going on at some point but in the meantime I’m just trying to be supportive of my mom. You know, she’s working really hard on her sobriety and I don’t want anyone or anything derailing that.

Liam: Do you think deacon knows about your mom’s relapse?

Hope: No.

Liam: No? I doubt that. I think it’s just you, ridge and me. And mom wants it to stay that way.

Liam: Yeah, no. Of course.

Hope: I especially don’t want taylor or steffy finding out, knowing how they feel about my mother.

Ridge: I appreciate your concern, I really do but you don’t have to worry about me or my marriage.

Steffy: Well, hope obviously is. Brought her to my house. She clearly felt the need to draw a hard line. But why is she being so territorial?

Thomas: That’s true. If things are so great between you and brooke, then why does her daughter think that she has to defend your relationship?

Steffy: Something is going on. There’s no doubt in my mind.

Thomas: Or mine.

Steffy: What we don’t get, though, if you know what that something is, why aren’t you telling us?

Thomas: Alright, look. Uh, yeah, we historically haven’t had the greatest track record with brooke. Alright? But we’re not going to attack her. We just want what’s best for you.

Ridge: It seems like you are attacking her. Brooke is fine. There’s nothing we can’t handle in our relationship. Thank you.

Thomas: But are you listening to yourself? Like in one breath, you say, “there’s nothing that you can’t handle in your relationship” but in the next you say that–

Ridge: I’m sorry. Excuse me. Are you listening to me? I said, “there’s nothing we can’t handle in our relationship.” Everything is fine. We’re not disagreeing on anything. If anything, I have more respect for her now than I ever had. Her and her strength and her honesty.

Brooke: You really gotta stop saying these things, deacon.

Deacon: I’m just trying to figure out what happened.

Brooke: There’s really nothing to figure out. None of this should have happened. The drinking, the kiss–

Deacon: Me in your bed. Albeit, on top of the sheets. But hey, there we were, right? I mean, how the hell does this stuff keep happening to us?

Brooke: I don’t know. I’d really like to find out so it doesn’t ever happen again.

Deacon: Ouch.

Brooke: Okay, come on. It’s not like this is some amazing fairy tale or something.

Deacon: I mean, we did have one happy ending, right? I mean, our beautiful daughter was a product of our romance or whatever you want to call it. Brooke, you can’t deny that we had a connection. Look, I get it. I– I haven’t exactly been the poster boy for stability these past years. I did love you enough to respect when you asked me to stay away from you and to stay away from hope– I did the best that I could. You gotta give me that. And then there you were. Enduring ridges split feelings between you and taylor, yet again. I mean, how many times can you ride that emotional merry go round? And now you got taylor back in town?

[Sighing] Look. I’m not saying this stuff to try and upset you. All I’m saying is maybe, maybe there was a reason for that kiss. More than just the alcohol. Wouldn’t it be amazing for our daughter if we were together?

Brooke: Stop it. Just stop. I can’t listen to this. I love ridge. I want a life with ridge. And if he finds out what we did, deacon. He will leave me. And i will not allow that to happen. Do you hear me? I won’T. If you have advanced non-small cell lung cancer,

Ridge: This is inspired, son.

Thomas: Thank you. And I think brooke would have thought so as well if you know, she showed up for the meeting that she set. But I am very happy with it.

Ridge: And you should be. Like I said before, you should always–

Thomas: Go with your gut? I feel like I’ve heard that before.

Steffy: Yeah, me too.

Ridge: See, that’s what I mean. We spend so much time together, you finish my–

Thomas: Sentences.

Ridge: Mm.

Thomas: Hm.

Steffy: But you know what we’re talking about. Being able to, like, have holidays together and celebrate with one another. We have wonderful memories as a family… when we get to share it with you.

Ridge: Well, it seems that everything’s under control, so I’m going to go home and check on brooke.

Brooke: I mean it, deacon. I can’t lose ridge. We love each other! We have too much history.

Deacon: So do we.

Brooke: Ridge and I share a child.

Deacon: So do we.

[Notification sounds]

Brooke: Oh, my god, that’s ridge. He’s on his way home. Go. Go now!

Deacon: Okay. I’ll go. I’m going to let you process this. But I’m done denying my feelings, alright? I love you and nothing is going to change that. Okay? Bye.


Brooke: God.

Steffy: Have you come to put me on notice? Or would you rather wait ’til my mom gets here instead?

Hope: Actually, I came by to drop these off but that depends.

Steffy: On what?

Hope: On if you both are going to respect what I said and respect my mom and your dad’s marriage.

Steffy: We respect their marriage. But we can’t help worrying about my father.

Hope: About ridge and if my mom is making his life miserable?

Steffy: The question is how would brooke be doing that? Because if this isn’t about deacon or my mom coming back in town, then…

Hope: My mom does not have a problem with taylor returning. I don’t know what– what more I can say to convince you of that.

Steffy: I just wish you’d be more open. Stop protecting, brooke. Like I sense you are.


Brooke: You’re back from the office already?

Ridge: There are more important things than work.

[Brooke sighs]

Ridge: You okay? What’s going on?

[Brooke sighing] Something happen? Talk to me.

Why hide your skin if dupixent

Hope: My mother doesn’t need protecting. She can take care of herself.

Steffy: But she does need her husband. You said that more than once.

Hope: Well yes, mom and ridge are married. Married couples need each other.-

Steffy: That’s not what I meant. Look, if you’re determined to keep whatever’s going on with brooke on the down low, I’m– I totally get it. That’s up to you. But you should know people are starting to talk around here, wondering why brooke’s not showing up at work. I mean, even my brother wanted her input on his latest design. If your mom is a constant no-show and– and the way you showed up at my house, you tried to put my mom and me on notice. And said that we can’t get involved in her marriage– like something’s going on.

Hope: Yeah, I didn’t mean to come on so strong. And, you know, I just think as one big family that we should respect each other accordingly.

Steffy: Well, hope, whatever your mom is dealing with, I hope it doesn’t consume her life or her marriage more than it already has.

Ridge: Come here. You know, you can talk to me about anything. Not gonna change the way I love you.

Brooke: I bet people at forrester are wondering where I’ve been.

Ridge: Well, that’s one of the cool things about being brooke logan. You’ve done so much for this company, you don’t have to answer anybody. Not even me. But I can see what’s going on in that head of yours. You’re still thinking about what happened on new year’S.

[Brooke sighs] I don’t want to go there. I just want to focus on you and what you are to my life. How much you mean to me. All your love and support. And though I still don’t understand what drove me to drink that night. Just that urge came out of nowhere and I let myself down. And I let you down. And I don’t ever want to let you down again.

Ridge: Come here.

Deacon: Morning, sunshine. You were too tired, too tired to walk. So I put you to bed. You fell right asleep. Listen to me. Nothing happened. Nothing.

Steffy: Okay, petra. I think that will do it. Thank you.

Petra: Always a pleasure. Brooke was asking to see this. Should I hunt her down, or..,?

Thomas: Yeah, um… well, she was supposed to be here, but pam says she’s nowhere in the building, so.

Steffy: We’ve taken plenty of photos. You can go change and I’ll forward them to her.

Petra: Okay, great.

Steffy: Thank you.

Thomas: Thanks. Um, I gotta ask. Do you know what’s going on?

Steffy: What do you mean?

Thomas: With brooke. This isn’t the first meeting she’s missed in the last couple of days, and, well, she hasn’t been around the office. Dad says something’s going on with her. So, what is it?

Deacon: Listen to me. Nothing happened. Nothing.

[Door clicks]

Ridge: Something upset you in the meeting?

Brooke: No.

Ridge: ‘Cause you didn’t say anything on the ride home.

Brooke: I’m just taking it all in. Just thinking about what was shared. It’s helpful to know that other people are going through the same thing, struggling.

Ridge: You’re struggling now?

Brooke: Wanting to drink? Not really. I don’t know.

Ridge: You’re still thinking about what happened on new year’s, right?

Bartender: Someone’s in a hurry.

Deacon: Uh, well, lunch crowd’s about to come in and we want the floor spick and span for our valued customers.

Bartender: Nice try. Give.

Deacon: You are an astute student of human psychology. All right, fine. Maybe I’m rushing because there’s someone that I have to go see, someone special.

Bartender: Rush all you want, as long as you’re thorough.

Deacon: Yup.

Sheila: Someone special? Let’s see. Would that be hope? Or brooke?

Steffy: I’m not sure what’s going on with brooke, but there’s definitely something. Hope basically said the same thing as dad.

Thomas: That– that she’s been acting strange?

Steffy: Yeah, since new year’s eve. And mom and I were talking about it and we were wondering if the reason why brooke was sulking is because dad didn’t make it home.

Thomas: Well, but dad said that she understood why he couldn’t be there.

Steffy: Yeah, but maybe brooke was covering, you know, how she really felt? Or maybe dad misinterpreted it.

Thomas: Misinterpreted it, and she’s actually upset? So much upset that she wouldn’t come to work? I mean, that’s pretty petty.

Steffy: Yeah, it is. Even for brooke.

Thomas: Okay, let’s assume it’s not that. What do you think it is?

Steffy: Um….

Deacon: Gosh, sheila, as much as I would love to stand around here and discuss my social engagements, wow, oh, look at the time. I gotta go.

Sheila: Oh, wow, is that a new watch?

Deacon: Yeah. It’s made by this new company, it’s called mind your own business.

Sheila: Oh.

[Chuckles] You know, I… judging by how secretive you are, I’d– I’d have to say it’s brooke. So, new year’s must have been very successful.

Deacon: Okay, why do you keep doing that?

Sheila: Hmm?

Deacon: Bringing up new year’s eve. You were quizzing me about it last time we were together.

Sheila: Come on, I’m just– I’m just trying to make conversation here, all right? Can you throw me a bone? I’m living vicariously through you. You are miles ahead of me with your relationship with your daughter.

Deacon: I don’t know about that. I haven’t seen brooke or hope since new year’s eve.

Sheila: Really? Hmm. Well, is there a reason for that?

Brooke: It still troubles me. Yes. And I think it will for a very long time. I mean, how could it not? I was sober for so long and… what changed that night? Why did I suddenly have this urge to drink?

Ridge: I don’t know that there is an answer.

[Sighing] I go to those meetings with you and hearing all the other stories… it seems that people slip up.

Brooke: Yeah, yeah, and there’s some comfort in that. Although it doesn’t take away all the regrets. And I– I still have regrets.

Ridge: I have them, too. Number one regret: Not being here when you needed me most. Leaving you all alone. I’m sorry. But I promise you, you’re never going to feel that pkind of loneliness ever again.

Deacon: Sheila, give me a break. I’m trying to work here.

Sheila: Yeah, I just– you know, it seems so strange to me. You were so excited about becoming a part of hope’s life, spending time with her, with brooke! And now you’ve decided to stay away?

Deacon: I never said, “stay away,” I just said I hadn’t been there since new year’s eve.

Sheila: Well, has that happened? Why?

Deacon: I don’t know. Life, you know… things I’ve had to do.

Brooke: You can’t be here anymore. You can’t come here, deacon.

Deacon: What?

Brooke: No, I can’t see you. You can’t come back, deacon. Ever.

Deacon: Yeah, work obligations. What have you. Things like that.

[Sheila laughs]

Sheila: Work obligations.

Deacon: Yeah.

Sheila: You’re telling me that you haven’t seen brooke or hope because you’re busy mopping?

Deacon: It’s called dedication, sheila. You know, putting the interests of others ahead of your own. You should try it.

Sheila: Whose interests? The manager here? Or is it really somebody else’s interests? Like maybe brooke’s?

Deacon: You don’t know what you’re talking about.

Sheila: No, I’m talking about how staying away from brooke’s house might be her idea, not yours.

Deacon: Okay. Anyhoo, enjoy your lunch or your stalking session or whatever reason you came here for. I gotta go. Ta.

[Sheila chuckles] Oh, wow, that must have been one heck of a new year’s eve. One hell of a party.

Steffy: I’m trying to hold back judgment, but I am co-ceo of this company, and if something’s going on with brooke and it affects work, I need to be told.

Thomas: Yeah. Well, look, I’m sure if it’s something serious, dad will tell you about it.

Steffy: Ha. If he even knows.

Ridge: Even knows what? What’s wrong?

Steffy: That’s what we’re wondering. Thomas and I were just discussing his latest design.

Thomas: Yeah, the one that brooke really wanted to see. She even set a time in here with the model so she could be here, but…

Steffy: Brooke was a no-show. Again.

Steffy: Dad. What is going on with your wife?

[Sheila sighs]

Sheila: Customer service was a lot better when I worked here. Did I succeed? Did I get brooke to drink again?

Deacon: Brooke.

Brooke: Deacon! What are you doing here! You can’t just walk in here!

Deacon: I was afraid you’d slam the door in my face.

Brooke: Look, if you want to see hope, I’m not going to stop you from going down there, but you’re not welcome in my home.

Deacon: Listen, if you’re afraid about ridge, don’t worry about it. I called down at forrester. He’s– he’s still in the office.

Brooke: God, I asked you not to come here!

Deacon: And I tried to honor that. I tried to honor you, but I can’t anymore. Brooke: Why not?

Deacon: Because I can’t stop thinking about what happened between us.

Brooke: Look, I don’t want to think about it. I want to just put it out of my mind.

Deacon: But you can’t, can ya? I bet you’re thinking about this as much as I am. What we did new year’s eve.

Steffy: Look, if it’s none of our business, just say so. But we are starting to get concerned.

Thomas: Yeah, it’s not like brooke to miss appointments. And you said the other day there’s something that she’s struggling with?

Steffy: Hope came to mom and me and she said that she’s worried about brooke. And if something’s really wrong, dad, we want to help.

Ridge: All right. I appreciate your concern. Brooke and I will be fine.

Thomas: So there is something going on?

Steffy: Brooke’s made some choices and we know you don’t approve, especially when it comes to deacon. Thomas: Yeah, does this have to do with him?

Steffy: Because that is a huge slap in the face. She’s opened her home to deacon without giving you any say. And not only has she opened her home, she’s opened herself up to him– his influence, his bad decisions. Deacon has all access, which means we don’t know what brooke might do next.

Brooke: Deacon, please. We need to put that night behind us. Forget it ever happened.

Deacon: Banning me from the house is not going to make you forget it.

Brooke: It will– it’ll help.

Deacon: It won’t help me. I can’t think about anything else. All I think about is kissing you.

Brooke: Yeah, but I did that because I was drunk! I drank. And I don’t even know how that happened.

Deacon: I tried to stop you. You wouldn’t– you wouldn’t listen to me.

Brooke: Look. I’m not blaming you. I wish to god there was somebody I could blame but myself. I just don’t know what happened that night. I just had this intense urge to drink and it just took over. It really, it doesn’t make any sense at all.

Deacon: Listen, if you haven’t done it already, you really should go to a meeting.

Brooke: I did. I did. I’ve been to some meetings with ridge. He’s been very supportive.

Deacon: Wait, you– you told ridge?

Brooke: Yes. And hope knows, too. About the alcohol. Nothing else. They don’t know that you spent the night here.

Deacon: Just sleeping it off, that’s all.

Brooke: Sleeping it off in my bed! You really think ridge is gonna understand that? Or you kissing me? Or– oh, my god. That’s why you can’t be here, deacon.

Deacon: No! No, no, no. I should be coming around more.

Brooke: No, no, that’s a terrible idea.

Deacon: Brooke. Up until new year’s eve, you didn’t have a problem with me being here on the property, right?

Brooke: And why do you think that is? I mean, why do you think that changed? Every time I look at you, I’m gonna be reminded of what happened.

Deacon: Not letting me on the property is only– it’s gonna raise suspicion with hope and ridge. Don’t you get it? I mean, look, she’s already been texting me. Hope wants to know why I haven’t been coming around. She doesn’t understand. This about-face that you’re doing is gonna raise red flags. Not letting me here? The last thing she remembers: We were here together having a great time. Now suddenly, I can’t come around? I mean, come on. Ridge and hope are smart people. They’re gonna connect the dots. The best thing that you can do is allow me back.

Brooke: Absolutely not.

Deacon: Ya gotta trust me on this.

Brooke: Oh, god. I can’t listen to you one more minute. I can’t see you anymore, deacon! You get it?

Thomas: Is this the best choice for you, dad?

Ridge: Choice? What choice?

Thomas: Being over there. At brooke’s place where deacon is makin’ himself a regular fixture. Okay, there are more pleasant places you can spend your time with people who actually care about you. And I know that brooke cares about you. She does. All right, this might sound a little weird for me to say, but… I miss you, dad.

Steffy: So do I. Mom does, too.

Ridge: You know how much I love you, right?

Thomas: Yeah, we never doubted that.

Ridge: So, what is this “miss you” drama? What’s going on?

Okay. Um… look, you make time to be with the grandkids, and obviously, we see you here at work, but…

Steffy: But dad, you go home to brooke and the logans. And now brooke, hope and deacon. Whatever is going on with brooke, this mood she’s been in since new year’s eve, if you want to put up with that, fine. Because it’s only a matter of time before brooke’s involved in another scandal. You know I’m right. Especially now that deacon’s in her orbit. It’s gonna happen, dad. And we don’t want that for you.

Thomas: That’s right. Now, look, deacon came back to town and where did he go? Straight to brooke. But someone else also came back to town. Maybe there’s some importance in that. ‘Cause timing is everything. Maybe mom is here to keep you out of brooke’s next scandal.

Steffy: It’s true… because you know what’s going to happen, dad? It’s brooke we’re talking about. She’s always involved in a scandal. And we don’t want you caught up in her madness. But you need to take control of your life before brooke brings you down again.

Brooke: I am going to make certain that you are out of all of our lives, once and for all.

Sheila: Will you, brooke? You guaranteeing to destroy my life… has only guaranteed me destroying yours.

Deacon: Brooke, do you seriously not see how suspicious this is?

Brooke: I don’t–

Deacon: That in one day–

Brooke: — Care!

Deacon: — You completely changed your opinion of me? Come on.

Brooke: Deacon: It’s what I have to do, okay?

Deacon: Yes. What you have to do, because you know what I know. We kissed for a reason.

Brooke: Because we were drunk. My god, what possessed me to drink?

Deacon: Don’t do this to yourself. Don’t– don’t lay a guilt trip on yourself. It’s not–

Brooke: What’re you talking about? You don’t think I should feel guilty, first of all, for drinking, second of all, for what we did together?

Deacon: It was one kiss. One.

Brooke: One kiss too many and it shouldn’t have happened. I never should have reached for that damn vodka bottle!

Deacon: You know, you say you don’t understand why you drank, but isn’t it obvious?

Brooke: No, no, it’s not obvious. I really haven’t had this intense urge to drink in a very long time.

Deacon: Okay, you were supposed to ring in the new year in with ridge. Right?

Brooke: Right.

Deacon: And then he calls and surprise, surprise, he can’t make it home.

Brooke: Okay, okay, I was sad he couldn’t come home, but I don’t think that would drive me to drink!

Deacon: Is it possible that that was the last straw? How many times has that man let you down? And now, you’ve got taylor in town.

Brooke: Oh, god. Don’t bring up her name. I’m sure that she’s just waiting in the wings somewhere, ready to pounce if something goes wrong. That’s why I’m really so mad that this happened that night.

Deacon: Well, it did happen.

Brooke: Yeah.

Deacon: It did. We– we let our inhibitions down and you know what it did? It released some inner desires.

Brooke: Desires? No, deacon. No. Not desires. Deacon: Brooke. Our lips touched. You can’t deny that there’s something going on between us. I know what I felt.

Brooke: My god. Why are you doing this? Why? Saying these ridiculous things like you did so long ago. You remember what happened, right?

Deacon: Yeah, I do. We created the most amazing daughter on the planet, who would love to see her parents together.

Brooke: Oh, my god, deacon. Stop. Please, please. I am with ridge. I love ridge. I want to be with my husband. Do you understand that? And if ridge knows exactly what we did that night on new year’s eve, he will leave me. He’ll leave. And I can’t let that happen. I won’t! I won’t!

Deacon: Look! I can’t do this anymore, okay? I have tried. I have buried my feelings for as long as I can. I’ve given you your space. I’ve told myself, “don’t– don’t bother her. Leave her alone,” but you know what? I’m done. Enough. Listen to me. I love you. Hell, I’ve always loved you. And I always will.

Steffy: Mom, I know you still love dad and deep down, I know he loves you, too.

Taylor: But he’s married to brooke.

Steffy: Maybe so, but do you think dad’s happy? He cannot be happy. How can he be? With everything that’s going on with brooke. We need to help dad. We need to get him out of there.

Taylor: Oh, honey, I hate to see you this upset, but it is what it is.

Steffy: No, it isn’T.

Taylor: We both have to understand that your dad’s life is with brooke and the logans.

Hope: Why don’t you want my dad around?

Brooke: It’s just not a good idea right now, hope.

Hope: Mom, you’ve been really supportive of our relationship and now all of a sudden you don’t want him around.

Brooke: I’m sorry, I really am sorry. This must be very confusing for you.

Hope: I… it’s fine. Mom. It is. It’s just I’m trying to understand, why so sudden. It… did something happen between you and dad?

Ridge: Well, we had quite a year, huh?

Carter: Tell me about it. Foundation’s never seen numbers this high. Our outreach increased twofold.

Ridge: Means we can help a lot more people.

Carter: Yeah. It’s all paris.

Ridge: You were right about her. Good recommendation.

Carter: Just had a feeling about her, you know? Her drive and dedication.

Ridge: She’s very special.

Carter: Paris is certainly very special.

Ridge: Paris, just talking about you.

Paris: I heard.

Ridge: We are very impressed with the work that you’re doing for the foundation.

Paris: Thank you, ridge.

Carter: Did your mom get settled in?

Paris: Yeah, she was really tired after her flight.

Ridge: I like that lady. You can tell she’s really something.

Paris: Yeah, my mom’s the best.

Ridge: Yeah. You know, we should think about maybe having a formal dinner for her. Can we do that?

Paris: Sure, we’d like that.

Carter: Hey ridge, I was looking for brooke earlier. Is she around?

Ridge: She’s not coming in.

Paris: Is everything all right?

Ridge: Yeah, everything’s fine.

Hope: Is it ridge? Because I know how he feels about dad.

Brooke: No, honey, he’s been incredibly loving and understanding.

Hope: Well… yes and no. I mean, it’s no secret how he feels about my dad.

Brooke: Well, I can’t really blame him for that.

Hope: Okay, fine. No, especially given the history, I get it. But if it’s not ridge, then–

Brooke: Ridge isn’t the one who’s done anything wrong.

Hope: Mom…. mom, I hope you know that you haven’t done anything wrong either. You had– you drank. And I understand that that is a big deal for you and you’re disappointed in yourself, but… it’s not unforgivable. But you’re still not exactly answering my question. Which is why did my dad suddenly disappear?

Steffy: You can’t give up, mom.

Taylor: Honey, I am not going to spend the next half of my life hoping things turned out different.

Steffy: But this is a new chapter. We can save dad from all of the drama and reunite our family. You just gotta put it out there and believe it can happen. Manifest it. I know it can happen. I really do. Something is going on over at brooke’s house. And obviously it’s something big. Otherwise, hope wouldn’t be so concerned. Sooner or later, it’s going to come out. That’s when we’re going to bring dad back.-We’ll bring dad back home here, with us.

Paris: Thankfully, my apartment was pretty clean. There were no big piles of laundry on the couch or anything, so.

Carter: And I’m sure she was thrilled.

Paris: Yeah, she called it charming. But she did say I didn’t have enough food in my cupboards, so.

Carter: Yeah, that’s mom for you. She must have been proud that you have your own place, though.

Paris: I’m still pinching myself. It’s the perfect little home, especially now that my mom is there. She can help me put up decorations and add her dr. Buckingham touches.

Carter: Yeah. Seems like she’s sticking around for a while, huh?

Paris: I’m hoping to keep her here for good. She doesn’t know any of the L.A. Spots, so I’m going to show her the– the cool spots, you know?

Carter: Yeah. I have to admit, though, I was a little surprised with how friendly your mom was to me.

Paris: Why wouldn’t she be?

Carter: The whole thing with zoe. Calling off the engagement.

Paris: Well, she didn’t treat you the way you deserved to be treated. And my mom knows that. And if she doesn’t, I’ll make sure she doeS.

Carter: You’d defend me like that?

Paris: I’m always willing to stand up for what’s right.

Carter: Well, I’m glad to know you’ve got my back.

Hope: I’m sorry we left you alone that night.

Brooke: If I could go back and do that night all over again, I would. And I would just make better choices.

Hope: Well, what exactly is it about that night that’s haunting you?

Brooke: Everything.

Hope: Well, I mean, I know obviously you relapsed and you regret that, but… could it be something more? I mean, is it because taylor’s back in town? Is it because I’ve been pressuring you about dad? I just–

Brooke: No, sweetheart.

Hope: Mom, I just– whatever it is, I want you to know that you can talk to me about it, okay? I won’t judge. If there’s something more going on, you can tell me. It will stay between us.

Ridge: Hey! I feel like I’m interrupting something.

Brooke: Uh… ridge, you didn’t have to come home so early from work. Really, I’m okay. I’m– I’m here with hope–

Ridge: No, I– the appointment was over and I thought I’d come home and we’d order some food.

Brooke: You really didn’t have to check on me, but that’s nice, thanks. It’s– it’s never gonna happen again.

Hope: Mom, what ridge and i said holds true. That we– we want to be here for you every step of the way.

Ridge: Yeah. And I– I think going to these meetings, that’s a– that’s a good start. I will go with you to as many of those as you want. And I know you want to find out what this trigger was. So do we. And once we find it, we’re going to find a way to avoid it, because we’re going to handle this as a family, no matter what.

Steffy: Dad is so happy to have you back.

Taylor: Ugh, he’s been wonderful to me.

Steffy: You two care about each other, it’s obvious.

Taylor: Well, that’s what you hope that happens when you share children together. It hasn’t always been easy, but we’ve managed to remain friends over the years.

Steffy: But it’s not just thomas, me and phoebe that keep you two connected. I mean, yes, we obviously tie you guys together, but it’s more than that. You guys have this, like, dance in your eyes when you look at each other, honestly.

Taylor: Dance. What kind of dance?

Steffy: I don’t know. It’s like this twinkle. There’s something there, there’s energy. You may not see it, but I definitely do. We all do. It’s like good and pure and beautiful. And it’s also shined a light on what we’ve been missing. And that’s you.

Taylor: I mean, I definitely have some lost time to make up with douglas, kelly, and hayes.

Steffy: But you’re back now. And think about the impact it could have on the three of them, seeing their grandparents together. United, strong, powerful forrester family.

Paris: My goal is to make my mom fall madly in love with L.A. So that she stays here forever.

Carter: Well, that shouldn’t be too hard, right? Blue skies in january, beach sunsets, plus one of her favorite daughters is here.

Paris: I like to think that I’m the main selling point.

Carter: Aw, I’d say that’s a given.

Paris: She used to visit me back east when I was in college, but having her here full time would be incredible.

Carter: Yeah. Well, every hospital in the area is clamoring to hire dr. Buckingham. She’ll have no problem taking her pick of jobs.

Paris: I mean, your lips to god’s ears. I just really missed her, you know? Family is super important to me.

Carter: Yeah, I can tell. I’m sending all the good vibes that everything works out for you.

Paris: Yeah. I’m pretty positive things will fall into place with my mom. I just wish I had that kind of certainty about other aspects of my life. What to do about zende.

Steffy: We were so wonderful as a family. Some of the most incredible memories that I cherish are the five of us together.

Taylor: Oh, I feel the same way, steffy.

Steffy: It’d be one thing if dad was in a healthy relationship, but he’s not. And it’s because of brooke.

Taylor: Brooke and I have definitely had our differences.

Steffy: Mm-hmm. Brooke has robbed you for so many years, just like hope robbed me. Don’t get me wrong, I’m very grateful to be in my marriage with finn. Like, I love him and I’m so happy we have a baby together. But let’s be real. She took liam away from me, just like brooke took dad away from you. It’s like this sick cycle perpetuated by the logans.

Taylor: Yeah, true. But I mean, ridge and I did grow apart a little bit. I cannot blame brooke for all our problems.

Steffy: Mom, if brooke wasn’t in the picture, you and dad would be together right now, living at that house in beverly hills. Am I wrong? That’s what the logans do, they just like– they keep infiltrating our lives. I mean, hope portrays herself to be this sweet, innocent woman but it’s just an act to get what she wants.

Taylor: And hope has some good qualities. You know, she’S… okay, I definitely don’t agree with the way she handles some situations.

Hope: Okay, but she is a good mother. She is great with kelly. But hope is like brooke. Brooke has moulded hope since she was a little girl. There is something seriously wrong with them. And there is trouble brewing over at brooke’s house.

Taylor: Yeah, there’s definitely something going on. She was really worried about her mom.

Steffy: Yeah, whatever it is, it’s major and it’s going to blow up in their face, and dad’s going to need us. He’s definitely going to need you, mom.

Ridge: But I am sorry, I feel like I walked in on something.

Brooke: Hope and I were just talking.

Hope: Yes. I mean, obviously mom has been struggling lately.

Ridge: But I don’t know why. I told you, nothing that happened is unforgivable, not even close.

Hope: Exactly. And that’s what I keep trying to tell you, mom. You have nothing to feel guilty about.

Ridge: Nothing. ‘Cause we don’t even know what happened. It might have been one thing or 10 things, or– or no things. I mean… addiction is a strange animal, right? It’s gonna rear its ugly head whenever it wants and wreak havoc.

Brooke: The desire hit me when I least expected it.

Ridge: I know. It’s one night. You are stronger than you give yourself credit for.

Hope: I– I know in the past my dad has also struggled with drinking and I was actually just asking her about–

Ridge: Why are we doing that? Why? Why are we talking about deacon? What about him?

Paris: Zende’s the greatest guy and we have gotten so close since we’ve been dating, but there’s just so much more I want to experience.

Carter: Yeah. Before you get married.

Paris: Yeah. And I’d love to marry, but I am just still so young. I feel like I’m just starting my life. I’ve got this charming apartment, amazing job, and I’m planning on doing some travelling when I get some time off.

Carter: You can still do that, you know?

Paris: I want to hold on to every bit of my independence. I’m not cut out to be tied down right now.

Carter: I hear you.

Paris: Does that make me a terrible person?

Carter: No, paris, not at all. I give zende props for putting his heart out there, but it was a good thing for both your sakes that he decided against proposing. Though, I don’t think he completely ruled it out.

Paris: I just don’t want to hurt him or lead him on. I don’t know what to do, carter.

Carter: I wish I had the answer. Zende’s a solid dude and he is totally crazy about you. But you have to follow your gut, do what’s right for you. And try not to stress about it too much, okay? Because you’re a good person, paris. You’ll figure it out.

Ridge: Why are we talking about deacon?

Hope: Well, he’s been kind of M.I.A. Lately and I just wanted to make sure everything was okay.

Ridge: Of course he’s M.I.A., That’s what he does! He leaves. He left you for years at a time so he’s probably disappeared again.

Hope: I was just wondering if mom had heard anything.

Brooke: Okay, I don’t want to talk about deacon. I want to talk about you and I want to thank you for the love and the support that you’ve both given me through this horrible time.

Hope: Oh, of course mom, we love you.

Ridge: We would do anything for you.

Brooke: Yeah, well, you shouldn’t have to put up with this.

Ridge: No one has to put up with anything. This is what we want to do. We want to get together and face this head on.

Hope: You’re surrounding yourself with the best kind of support.

Brooke: I’m so lucky… and I don’t want to lose you. I don’t want to risk losing this beautiful family that we have.

Hope: It’s okay.

Steffy: Dad is going to need you. Something is bound to happen. Brooke is going to let him down again. And I can’t accept the logans winning out in the end.

Taylor: But your father is committed to his wife.

Steffy: But he’s paying the price with his own sanity.

Taylor: Ridge is doing the best that he can. It’s– it’s hard having two families, but he has always made sure that you kids know how loved you are.

Steffy: Yeah, you– you two have raised us well. You taught us to take the high road, when the logans would manipulate and take whatever they wanted. This whole deacon situation, it’s– it’s so messed up and it’s taken its toll.

Taylor: I think your dad’s been a saint.

Steffy: Beyond. Hope and brooke are disrespecting him. They’re making him feel like he’s a guest in his own home. And then you have deacon just hanging out there, working his way deeper into their lives.

Taylor: Yeah, I’m still shocked that he was allowed to go to the house on new year’s eve.

Steffy: I’m shocked, too, but this is brooke we’re talking about.-You’ve seen her track record.

Taylor: I imagine a part of her feels caught between her daughter and ridge.

Steffy: Yeah, I’ve had enough. Mom. Haven’t you had enough? Don’t you want to get back at brooke? Honestly. It’s like she doesn’t even care that her actions affect you.

Taylor: But sweetheart, she never will. That’s because we are in a war, mom. The logans vs. The forresters. But it’s not finished. The best days lie ahead. The forrester family, we’re going to triumph. We are. Come here.

[ Relaxing music ]

Hope: My mom and ridge are facing a challenging time, and I just don’t want anyone to try to take advantage of that.

Steffy: Hold on. Take advantage?

Hope: I am not saying that you would, but if we’re going off of track record…

Steffy: It’s like you didn’t hear a word I just said. Nobody dictates my father’s choices or my mother’S. Especially when it comes to my family.

Taylor: Okay, kids, that’s enough. I hear that you’re both very concerned about your parents and that is touching and admirable. But, but I’m standing right here. Okay, this is… this is awkward. And hope, I’m still not sure what’s going on with your mom, but if she needs any help, I’m here.

Brooke: Ridge, you need to go to the office. That appointment’s been rescheduled two times. Come on, you don’t need to babysit me.

Ridge: I just told you, I’m never leaving you again.

Brooke: I didn’t know that you meant that literally.

Ridge: Yeah, if you need me to be here, I’m going to be here.

Brooke: What I need is to figure out why I started drinking.

Ridge: We will. We’ll figure it out together. Most important thing is now you’re going back to meetings, and you’ve recommitted to your sobriety. So that’s good.

Brooke: Right. Yes. Mm-hm. And what happened on new year’s is never going to happen again. Ever.

Grace: Paris, this place is amazing.

Paris: Right?

Grace: Apparently, everyone would say the same about you. Especially eric forrester. He’s so charming and handsome.

Paris: Mom.

Grace: I’m just saying, it’s obvious he respects you and the work you do. I am so proud of you.

[ Paris giggling ]

Carter: Oh, sorry.

Paris: Oh hey, carter, this is my mom.

Carter: Yeah, uh, hello. Dr. Buckingham.

Grace: Carter. Carter walton. We finally meet.

Carter: It’s a pleasure, dr. Buckingham.

Grace: Please, call me grace. Hard to believe this is our first meeting, carter.

Carter: Well, I’ve heard a lot about you. Distinguished medical professional, admired and adored by both your daughters.

Grace: And I’ve heard a lot about you too… from both my daughters.

Carter: I hope zoe is doing well.

Grace: Yes, she’s very busy. Travelling, working, moving on with her life. And I missed paris, so I’m here in L.A.

Paris: And I love having you here. It’s been a wonderful surprise.

Carter: Yeah, paris has missed having family in town.

[ Ridge sighing ]

Ridge: I don’t want you to feel like I’m leaving you.

Brooke: Oh, gosh, no, I don’t feel like that at all. I mean, you went to a meeting with me. You helped by removing all of the alcohol from the house. You’ve been incredibly loving and supportive. I appreciate that. But really, you’ve got to go to the office.

Ridge: Yeah.

Brooke: You’ve gotta go to work. I…I’m fine. I can be on my own.

Ridge: You’re okay?

Brooke: Yes, I am.

Ridge: You know what I love? That we can say anything to each other, right? No holding back.

Hope: Thank you for offering to help, but what my mother needs right now is stability and security.

Taylor: Okay. And do you think that I’m upsetting that somehow?

Steffy: I think brooke is threatened having you back in town.

Hope: No, no, that’s not what this is about at all.

Steffy: Good, because my father is welcome here anytime. You have to remember he has two families.

Hope: Oh, okay. Well, I thought we were one big family. Isn’t that what we’ve been telling the kids? That we’re all connected? Or has that changed?

Taylor: No, hope, steffy is just explaining the complexity of the situation. Ridge is married to your mom, but we also have children together and we have grandchildren that live right here. And for the time being, so do I. So, ridge and I are going to see each other often. But, hope, I did not come back to L.A. To break up ridge’s marriage to your mother. A lot of people think dealing with copd

Paris: Mom might not be just visiting. She is thinking about relocating to los angeles.

Carter: Really?

Grace: Yes. I’m fielding some interesting offers.

Paris: Yeah, like one at university down the street.

Grace: I haven’t given an answer yet, but I am considering it.

Paris: She’s going to say yes.

Carter: Clearly, paris hopes that you do.

Paris: Yeah, I’d be thrilled.

Grace: That’s what a mother likes to hear.

Carter: I hope everything works out for you.

Grace: Yeah, me too. It would be a great opportunity. Gives me a chance to keep an eye on my girl here. Not that she needs it. My daughters do know how to take care of themselves. They are driven and resilient.

Carter: I know. It’s what made paris such a good choice for her position at the foundation.

Paris: I told you carter recommended me for it.

Carter: And everyone’s grateful that I did. Paris has really supercharged the foundation and integrated philanthropy into so many aspects of the company. We’re lucky to have her. She has a huge fan club here.

[ Steffy sighing ]

Steffy: I didn’t mean for things to get contentious with hope. I try not to do that anymore.

Taylor: Oh, I get it. You both made valid points.

Steffy: It’s just tough, you know, now that deacon’s back.

Taylor: He’s causing trouble for everyone.

Steffy: Yeah, that’s why I’m so frustrated. Hasn’t dad had enough? Brooke just expects him to be okay having deacon over at her house, and he’s constantly reminded of her indiscretion.

Taylor: I don’t think brooke wants anyone thinking about that.

Steffy: Well, she’s not doing anything to stop it. She’s practically throwing it in dad’s face. Inviting deacon over, having him over on new year’s eve, she doesn’t care about dad’s feelings.

Taylor: I understand your frustration, but your dad made his choice a long time ago.

Steffy: Yeah, he made the wrong one. He has to see that. We’re still a family, we’re a wonderful, supportive family, but dad can’t seem to tear himself away from the logans and all of their drama.

Ridge: No matter what’s going on, we can handle this. That’s going to be tough to process because you don’t know exactly what happened.

Brooke: I wanted to be with you. I was excited to spend the new year’s with you, and then when that didn’t happen… my emotion… I lost all control.

Ridge: Well, you’re back in control now. If you need me to be here, I’ll be here.

Brooke: Well, you really do have that appointment to get to.

Ridge: I don’T…

Brooke: I made a mistake. One that will never happen again. I have too much respect for you and for our life together. Thank you. Thank you for being so compassionate and making me feel safe. Supported. I love you so much.

Ridge: Love you. I know this is your battle to fight, but I’m going to be right by your side. I needed to hear that. Napoleon was born and raised to conquer.

Paris: I don’t think the goals for the company and the foundation are exclusive. Look at the hope for the future, for instance, from the very beginning, she’s wanted to make sure her brand made a difference. And I think it really–

Ridge: So, I ran into dad in the building and he said we have a special guest today.

Paris: Ah, yes. Ridge forrester, meet my mom, dr. Grace buckingham.

Ridge: Oh, doctor, a pleasure.

Grace: You too. I have to give you my sincere apologies, just like I did to eric earlier for what happened between my ex-husband and hope and your daughter. Words can’t begin to express how horrified I was at what reese did and the pure agony he’s caused your family.

Ridge: That was in the past. Um, beth is where she needs to be, and we’re trying to focus on more positive things. Like your beautiful daughter here, who I think has shown you around the building already.

Grace: Yes, it was fascinating.

Ridge: See, if we had known you were coming, we would’ve had some flowers–

Grace: Well, it was a surprise. Zende helped set it up. He is a very impressive young man and a fine designer as well.

Ridge: And very fond of your daughter.

Grace: Yes. That’s apparent.

Ridge: So, where are you staying?

Grace: At a hotel–

Paris: With me. I insist. It’s not fancy, but it’s comfortable and it’s close by and with thomas gone, I would love the extra company.

Grace: Wow. More time with my daughter, who can say no to that? Thank you, honey.

Paris: Of course. Did you leave your bag with security?

Grace: Yeah, in one of the offices.

Paris: Well, we can get it on the way out.

Grace: Okay. Well, it was wonderful to meet you all.

Ridge: See you soon.

Carter: Hopefully, we’ll see you again soon.

Paris: You can count on it.

Taylor: Your father knows his own mind.

Steffy: Well, I don’t get it. I really don’T. And I can’t accept it. Yeah, dad made a choice. But you can’t tell me that he’s happy. Really? Arguing with brooke about deacon, being forced to accept him in his life, in his home?

Taylor: Yeah.

Steffy: Come on.

Taylor: No, I know your father is not happy about that.

Steffy: No, he’s not. And maybe I wouldn’t have an issue with it if it was just that. But dad always made concessions to brooke and the logans.

Taylor: Yeah, but he doesn’t see it that way.

Steffy: Well, you know, it’s weird. It just, it just goes against everything I was brought up to believe. Being a kind human, being, being a good person. It’s like upside down world.

Taylor: It’s all true. It’s all good.

Steffy: Then why isn’t dad with you? You’re a good person. You’re a doctor, you spent your life taking care of others.

Taylor: Well, sure, but honey, those things come with their own reward, it doesn’T…

Steffy: But it doesn’t make a difference to dad. That’s it. I’m co-ceo forrester creations. The company has never been more successful. You have thomas creating amazing designs, carrying on the forrester legacy. Dad should be proud of that, but it’s like he’s not. He’s just… too busy with them. The logans. Why?

Brooke: I don’t need looking after, but thank you.

Hope: Well, you’re welcome. So where was ridge heading off to?

Brooke: The office. And I’m glad he went. Because he doesn’t have to stay here with me. And neither do you, honey.

Hope: Well, I’m here because I want to be, and I know that you would do the same for me.

Brooke: I don’t mean to sound ungrateful. I really do appreciate all of your support. Means a lot to me.

Hope: I’m just happy that you’re accepting it and that you’re being open and honest about what you’re going through. And I just want you to know that it is all right to lean on us for support. I mean, we’re here if you need it.

Brooke: Okay, thank you, I will.

Hope: I do have one question, though, and… I-I don’t want it to upset you, but… I need to know.

Brooke: What is it?

Hope: It’s about my dad.

Hope: There’s more going on than I know, isn’t there?

Brooke: I don’t know what you mean.

Hope: You say that you want deacon out of your life, fine. But what I don’t understand is the complete 180, and I am not saying this, mom, to put you on the spot or to make you feel uncomfortable, especially now. But I haven’t heard from my dad since new year’s eve, and now you’re saying that you don’t even want to talk about him.

Brooke: Honey. I need to move forward. It’s not healthy for me to look back.

Hope: Mom. Did you say something to him? Did you tell deacon to stay away?

Brooke: Oh my god. We kissed. You can’t be here anymore. You can’t come here, deacon.

Deacon: What?

Brooke: That’s ridge. He’s pulling in. We gotta– you gotta get out of here. You gotta go. You can’t come back, deacon. Ever!

Hope: Or is this because you drank on new year’s eve? Wait a second, are you… are you blaming dad for you relapsing that night? Because he was gone before that happened, right? I mean, mom, you… you know, you didn’t have to be alone. You could have… you could have called me and I would have gladly been here to support you. I should have been here to–

Brooke: Honey, what happened that night had nothing to do with you.

Hope: I know, it feels that way. It feels like it all began to unravel the minute I invited dad back into our lives, and now he’s gone once again and I haven’t heard from him and I don’t know why. So, mom, please, if… if something happened between you and dad, could you just tell me? Because I really need to know.

Taylor: Brooke is obviously going through something right now, and that’s going to be a priority for your father, but… that doesn’t mean he doesn’t love you or appreciate our family.

Steffy: But brooke and the logans always come first.

Taylor: Yeah, well, he is worried about brooke and hope for good reason. Hope was really stressed about her mom.

Steffy: I don’t want anything bad to happen to brooke. But if she’s in trouble, odds are she brought it on herself.

Taylor: Yeah. Hope’s reaction makes me think it’s something serious.

Steffy: Well, you know what that means, dad’s going to get caught up in all of the drama. I get that he cares about brooke, but it’s like his own happiness doesn’t matter.

Taylor: Honey, I… your father has been happy.

Steffy: No, he’s not. He cannot be happy with this whole deacon situation. It is crazy. It’s absurd. Dad has like no support over there. That’s why I’m so furious. I get that hope needs her father. But hey! I need my dad too. And so does thomas.

Taylor: I know, sweetie, I’m so sorry, and I… I hate that our family was torn apart all those years ago. But, it was also circumstance, bad luck.

Steffy: No, not all of it. It’s not fair. I know you said that you’re staying here for good and… mom, I really hope you mean it. Because I need you. I do. Thomas needs you too. And I know dad does. I really do. Yes, the people you worked with, they counted on you, but that wasn’t the only reason you stayed away. Now that you’re back, I mean, you see what’s happening. This is crazy. And I’m not asking you to compete for a man, that is the last thing I want. Do not want that. But I want you to fight. Fight for your family. And I wouldn’t be saying this if I didn’t think you cared about dad, but mom, come on, it is obvious you love him. It is so obvious. And deep down, I know dad loves you too. So, like whatever is going on over at brooke’s, maybe it’s about deacon. Or maybe it’s some other scandal. If dad’s in harm’s way, we need to get him out of there for his sake. He needs to be with his family. He needs to be with you, me, thomas. Not the logans. Dad needs to be with the forresters.

Steffy: I hope you saved room for dessert.

Taylor: Oh my gosh, is that what I think it is?

Steffy: Yes, it’s still your favorite, right?

Taylor: Yes. Oh, you are spoiling me.

Tey: Iilinda t’s ri.T a

Taylor: Mm. He’s coming over?

Steffy: Yeah, I texted him. Tried to entice him. Well… not that he needs enticing or anything.

Taylor: Is that supposed to–

Steffy: Like obviously, there’s something still going on, like you guys have this energy–

Hope: Knock, knock! Hello?

Steffy: Come on in. Hey, come on in, what’s going on?

Hope: Um, well. Douglas lost his football again, and he thinks that he left it here. Have you seen it?

Taylor: Yeah, I think it’s on the patio.

Hope: Okay, perfect. I’ll just grab it on my way out then.

Steffy: Yeah, go do it. We’re just having dessert, so.

Taylor: Do you want to join us?

Hope: Oh.

Steffy: Yeah, dad’s coming, too. He loves my banana cream pie.

Hope: Actually, I’m not so sure that ridge is going

Brooke: I relapsed,

I started drinking again.

Of course, I’m feeling guilty.

As far as that kiss

and ending up in bed with you.

Look, we’re going to need to

just keep this a secret, okay?


Ridge: Logan. You went back to new year’s eve again, didn’t you?

Paris: Mom, I still can’t believe you’re here.

Mrs. Buckingham: Should i have warned you first?

Paris: No, no. I’m so happy that you’re here. I just didn’t know you were planning a visit.

Mrs. Buckingham: Oh, I missed my baby girl.

Paris: I miss you too, mom.

Mrs. Buckingham: Actually, I’ve never been good at surprises and would never have pulled this one off, either. Not without zende’s help.

Zende: I mean, am I being paranoid wondering if paris is interested in another guy? That she wants to take a chance to see where things might lead? And that she has been sending me this gentle message that there might be some competition? Because if that is the case, I want a name.Th

Carter: A name?

Zende: The guy I’m up against. Who is he? Do I know him? What his intentions are as far as paris is concerned?

Zende: I’m very protective of paris. True, my proposal never got off the ground, but we’re still dating and I’ll always look out for her, even if…

Carter: If what?

Zende: I don’t want to get ahead of myself. I don’t know that there’s another guy that paris might like. But if there is, there is no way that I’m just going to give up and step aside.

Paris: Did you come here straight from the airport?

Mrs. Buckingham: Yes.

Paris: You should’ve told me I could have picked you up.

Mrs. Buckingham: And ruin the chance to pull zende into my grand surprise? He’s a really great guy, you know. If I was just a few years younger, whoo–

Paris: Mother!

Mrs. Buckingham: He’s also sweet and charming. I am very happy you are dating such a fine young man as zende forester.

Brooke: There’s nowhere you got to be?

Ridge: I’m exactly where I need to be right here. I’m sorry I wasn’t here before.

Brooke: All those years of sobriety. Just gone. In one night. It was my weakness, my…. my mistake. And now…

Ridge: Now, you can do everything in your power to make sure it doesn’t happen again. And you’re doing it, starting with this meeting today. Gotta tell you, seeing– seeing you up there, standing up and… telling everybody the truth. So proud of you, I just don’t know where you get that strength. Strength to do that and the strength to face every day. But you can do me a favor, stop beating yourself up over this. Okay?

Brooke: Okay.

Steffy: Hope’s right, dad can’t make it, he’s spending time with brooke at her house.

Hope: It’s ridge’s home too, steffy.

Steffy: I didn’t mean anything by that.

Hope: No, I’m sorry. I don’t know why I said that.

Taylor: Hope, is everything okay with your mom? Steffy mentioned something was going on with her.

Steffy: Yeah, what is it? You know, you can tell us, hope.

(Ziploc bag opening)

Zende: I know it sounds crazy, almost nobody knew that I was going to propose that night, but the way that things went down, it just seemed like someone had tipped her off about the proposal. Not that it matters. Paris’s answer would have still been the same. She’s just not ready for marriage.

Carter: Even though you are?

Zende: I appreciate her honesty. But between you and me, carter, it was a big kick in the gut. I was hoping that paris and i would be engaged right now.

Mrs. Buckingham, I hope I don’t sound like a meddling mother, and that’s the last thing I want to be. But I follow zende both online and in the press ever since you told me that you were dating. Not only is he talented and successful, but he’s also a very good person with a good heart. And plus, he comes from a wonderful family who’s embraced you, and that makes him a winner in my book. Obviously in yours… okay. Of course I… I could be misreading things.

Paris: What do you mean?

Mrs. Buckingham: You and zende. Is there something going on between you two I should know about?

Brooke: I can’t imagine my life without you, ridge.

Ridge: Oh, that’s good, because you’re stuck with me.

Brooke: Yeah, well, I don’t make it very easy on you.

Ridge: I’ve never made it easy for you. We’re still here. Still together after all these years. Says something about our love story, right? Whatever life hands us, we’ll deal with it. Right? Without blaming each other, without shame.


Brooke: Yeah. I’m hearing you. I am. I’M… I’m trying and I…

[Clearing throat] I appreciate your support more than anything. And hope’s too.

Ridge: What’s going on?


Brooke: I’m just… just thinking about my daughter. You know, I don’t like how she… feels like she’s responsible for what happened.

Taylor: Obviously, you’re concerned about your mother.

Hope: Yes. I mean, it’s no secret that I have brought some added stress to my mother and ridge’s marriage because I want to have a relationship with my father.

Taylor: Yeah, I’ve heard that there were some issues with that, but I also was under the impression that your mom and ridge were working through all that.

Hope: Yes, that’s true. They’re working through a challenging time. I just want to make sure that they’re given space and that you not see it as an opportunity, taylor.

With less moderate-to-severe


Zende: I know how this probably is coming off, like I’m throwing myself this big pity party.

Carter: No, man. Not at all.

Zende: It’s just, I still believe in a future with paris. Maybe I was just going too fast in my head. I don’t know. Well, I’m thankful that I get to spend some time with paris’s mom now that she’s in town. I think it’s good for paris to have some family in L.A., Regardless of how brief it might be.

Carter: Yeah, I agree. I know how much paris has missed her mom. What?

Zende: I was just thinking, you have been such a good friend to both paris and me. I really appreciate it carter. I know that paris thinks very highly of you.

Paris: So, mom, this opportunity at university hospital, you seriously considering taking it?

Mrs. Buckingham: Unless you can think of a reason why I shouldn’T.

Paris: No, no, it would be so fun having you here, we can hang out together.

Mrs. Buckingham: Oh my god, honey, that is so sweet. But you have your own life and between your work at the forrester foundation and your relationship with zende, I doubt you have a lot of free time.

Paris: I will always make time for you. I love you, mom.

Mrs. Buckingham: Oh, I love you too, my sweet girl. More than I can say.

Ridge: Hey, hope is not responsible for this. No one is responsible. Staying sober is a daily battle, right?

Brooke: A battle that I lost that night, and I still don’t even understand why. I don’t understand what drove me to drink. Yes, I was upset that you didn’t come home, but that couldn’t have been it, ridge, there… there had to have been more.

Ridge: All right, listen to me. It really doesn’t matter right now. What matters is we’ve got to fix the problem. You’re doing it. You’re going to meetings. Got rid of all the booze in the house. And I’m proud of you, your daughter is proud of you because you’re so strong. We’ll figure this out as a family. I know you want to know what the trigger was. We all do and we will find it. And when we do, we’ll deal with it and it’s going to be another victory for us. It’s going to make our family stronger, I promise you. Yes? Okay.

Taylor: What kind of opportunity, hope, what are you implying?

Steffy: Wait, this is the real reason you stopped by, it’s not about getting douglas’ football. You came here to confront my mom.

Hope: No, no, no, not at all. This was not meant to be a confrontation, but I do think it needs to be said.

Taylor: What needs to be said, hope? Tell me.


Hope: Look, I’m well aware that you didn’t just leave town for your job. It was also about your feelings for ridge. And obviously, I mean, that’s your ex-husband, that’s steffy and thomas’s dad, and you had a life and a family together.

Steffy: We still do.

Hope: Yes. But I also know that in the past, you have also blamed my mom in some ways and thought that she stole that from you.

Steffy: Okay, hope, can you just get to your point?

Hope: The point is, I am glad that you’re back in town, taylor, I just… I hope that you and your daughter remember that ridge is no longer married to you. He’s married to my mother. With age comes more…

Mrs. Buckingham: It still amazes me what you’ve accomplished for yourself at such a young age. Both my girls! Look at you, working for forrester creations and all the wonderful work the foundation does for people around the world. Thanks to you in no small part, to your leadership and your vision.

Paris: Spoken like a truly unbiased mom.

Mrs. Buckingham: Of course, there’s also your involvement with zende. Not that I’m trying to play matchmaker. But if you would allow your mother a word of advice. Don’t make the same mistake I did. Choose your significant other carefully. Someone from a good family, someone with strong morals and integrity. It’s not just about money and position and standing, it’s about finding the right foundation to build your life and your future on. Could that man be zende?

Zende: I think I’m going to hold on to that ring. Maybe one day I’ll get to slip it on to paris’ finger. Still, I keep coming back to that one thing.

Carter: What’s that?

Zende: If there is another guy who’s caught paris’s attention, who could it be?

Brooke: Come on, deacon.

Come on, slug one back

with me, buddy, old pal.

Deacon, it’s gonna haunt me.

It’s gonna haunt me forever.

Ridge: Sorry, this happened to you. Here.

Brooke: Okay, thanks. Mm.

Ridge: It’s one night.

Brooke: Yeah.

Ridge: It’s the past. See if we can focus on the future. Hi.

Brooke: Hi.

Ridge: Come here.

Steffy: Look hope, I’m not entirely sure what’s going on with dad and brooke, but it is his life, his future. Whatever he decides, it’s his decision.

Hope: But he’s already made his decision and he is married to my mom.

Steffy: And I’m aware of that. So is mom. But we are aware that dad has been through a lot, and most of it is because of you and brooke.

Hope: Are you talking about my dad?

Steffy: Deacon. Yeah, I am. My dad despises him. For good reason. And instead of listening to his warnings, you and brooke are welcoming him with open arms despite all of the pain and shame he’s caused.

Hope: Okay, that was before, and he is a different man now.

Steffy: Right. Because deacon says he is, and you’re desperate to believe that. But how do you know he’s changed? I get that he’s your father and you can’t be totally objective. But brooke is a whole different story. She was caught in this discussing messy scandal. And here she is, welcoming deacon back into her life, even though dad is really upset about it. But does she care? Is she worried about him. His concerns, his pleas?

Taylor: Okay, honey–

Steffy: Mom, no, no, no, no. I know, I definitely need to say something. Because even though dad and brooke are married, whatever he decides in the long run is up to him. Not to you. Not to brooke.

Hope: I’ve heard that you’re planning on staying in L.A. And you’ve already opened up a practice, and I am thrilled for you. Uh, I’m sure steffy and thomas are happy to have you back. I just ask… to respect my mother and ridge’s marriage. They’re deeply in love, and I don’t want anything to disrupt that. We’ve… we’ve been in a good place lately and I just want to keep the peace, so I want to make sure that that is understood by both of you. Is that clear?

Steffy: Wow.

Liam: Hey, how’s douglas?

Hope: Oh, he’s fine. He’s reading a story to beth. Liam. I missed it. I’ve been so focused on my father that i didn’t even notice that my mother was struggling.

Liam: No, no. None of this is your fault.

Hope: She was all alone.

Liam: But she’s not anymore, right? I mean, she’s at a meeting with ridge right now, an open meeting. She’s getting all the help she needs. Brooke logan is a fighter. She’ll make it through this just fine.

Facilitator: Were you alone when you drank on new year’s eve?

Brooke: Come on, slug one

back with me, buddy ole pal.

It’s new year’s eve.

Deacon: Alright, alright.

Okay. Alright.

[Brooke sighs]


[Notification rings]

Zende: Paris. Just the person I was looking for.

Paris: Yeah?

Zende: Yeah. I’m working on a new design and I could use your opinion.

Paris: Wow, this is the third time in two days. Maybe I should take up designing.

Zende: Yeah, I’d cosign on that. Listen. I want to tell you that I appreciate you and your honesty. And I have to admit that some of the things that you said on new year’s, they threw me. You know, you wanting to keep things loose and casual between us. I respect you being so straightforward with me.

Paris: Wow, thank you. I’m glad that you feel that way. You’re a really great guy.

Zende: Everything okay?

Paris: Yeah. I’m sorry, I just got a text from my mom.

Zende: Your mom?

Zende: Yeah, I wasn’t expecting it but it made me realize how much I miss her.

Paris: These texts from my mother are so random.

Zende: What do they say?

Paris: They’re just pictures of us together.

Zende: Wait, is that you? What are you wearing?

Paris: When I was little, we used to have these dress up tea parties and I’d throw on one of her dresses that was obviously too big for me and almost all of her jewelry.

Zende: Sounds like a classy affair to me.

Paris: Oh, and this one.

[Sighs] This picture is the last time we were together. She’s just got me thinking, with my dad and zoe gone, it’s hard not having family out here. I just really miss my mom a lot.

Mrs. Buckingham: I miss you, too, paris.

Paris: Mom?

Mrs. Buckingham: Oh, my baby. Oh, it’s so good to see you. Missed you so much.

Paris: I cannot believe you’re here right now.

Mrs. Buckingham: I’m here.


Hope: I shouldn’t have left her by herself. The holidays can be difficult.

Liam: What are you talking about? We thought ridge would be there.

Hope: Yeah, well then we should have waited. Is it my fault that she fell off the wagon? Have I, by pushing too hard and too much to have my dad be a part of my life, did that cause her to stress?

Liam: Absolutely not, hope. There’s no way that’s what this is–

Hope: Well, then why then? Why did my mom start drinking again?

Brooke: I’m gonna make sure

you come nowhere near

my family, especially

steffy, finn and hayes.

[Brooke sighs]

[Brooke sighs]

Brooke: Yes. Yes. Yes. I was alone when I drank.

Facilitator: Thank you for sharing, brooke.


Paris: Oh! You knew about this?

Mrs. Buckingham: Well, I wanted to surprise you.

Paris: Wow, so there’s no design that you needed my help with, huh?

Zende: Not at this moment. No.

Mrs. Buckingham: Oh, he is very handsome in person. He’s also very sweet. Thank you, zende, for helping arrange this.

Zende: My pleasure. Anything to make paris happy. Now I’m sure that the two of you have a lot to catch up on, so I’m gonna get out of here.

Paris: Hey. Thank you for this.

Zende: Of course.

Mrs. Buckingham: Wah! My baby.

Carter: Someone’s having a good day. What is going on, why are you all smiles?

Zende: I just pulled off a big surprise.

Carter: Yeah?

Zende: Paris, you should have seen her face. I mean, she had no idea it was coming. When I tell you it was priceless–

Carter: Zende, I have– I have no idea what you’re talking about.

Zende: What? Oh. Yeah, my bad. Duh! I’m still obviously super excited about it.

Carter: I could– I could definitely tell so what happened?

Zende: Paris’s mother is in town.

Liam: Hey, hey. It’s your love for your mom that’s making you blame yourself for her relapse but the truth is there’s nothing you could have done.

Hope: We could have taken ridge’s advice and moved out and alleviated any stress about my dad. And now, on top of everything, taylor is back in town.

Liam: What does taylor have to do with it?

Hope: Listen, I know my mom’s not threatened by her but I’m sure it adds some stress. And then combine that with my dad, maybe it was just too much.

Liam: Okay, but we don’t know that.

Hope: Well, then what is it then? Because I don’t buy that you’re just fine one minute and then pick up a vodka bottle the next. I don’T. I think someone or something pushed her over the edge. Something made her drink again.

Sheila: No one is going to keep me from a life with my son and my grandson. Especially not you, brooke.

Facilitator: What led you to drink again? Are you able to identify the trigger?

Brooke: Honestly, I don’t know. I haven’t had this intense desire to drink for a very long time. I don’t know what triggered it. And before, when I drank, I– that feeling, it didn’t come out of nowhere.

Facilitator: Maybe it didn’T. Maybe the desire’s more subconscious, something that’s been there, building that you just weren’t aware of.

Brooke: Maybe you’re right. But regardless, I am– I’m committed to my sobriety and I couldn’t do it without my husband. Very thankful for his support. And whatever it is that led me to drink, I just can never let that happen again.

Dry eye symptoms

driving you crazy?

Zende: Mrs. Buckingham wouldn’t have been able to get into the building without me. I’m telling you, the look on her face– she was so happy.

Carter: I bet.

Zende: And that’s all I really care about, making paris happy. You want to hear something crazy?

Carter: Sup?

Zende: I asked quinn to make an engagement ring for me. It was beautiful and unique, just like paris. I really love her, carter. I was going to propose to her on new year’S.

Carter: What happened?

Zende: I didn’t go through with it. I mean, I wanted to. I really do love her. But… I’m not sure how paris feels about me now.

Paris: I can’t believe you’re in L.A. One second, I’m texting you and the next you’re here?

Mrs. Buckingham: I’ve been dying to see you. And you are quite the rock star. I mean, I literally saw you singing at dodger stadium.

Paris: Yeah, that was out of this world.

Mrs. Buckingham: L.A. Looks good on you and you’ve accomplished so much in such a short amount of time. Feels like you just graduated from college and now you’re this key player for the forrester foundation.

Paris: Yes. It’s been really amazing.

Mrs. Buckingham: And you’re consulting for hope for the future? Yeah, I’ve been keeping tabs on you. All your hard work and passion to help others has really paid off.

Paris: What can I say? I have an incredible role model.

Mrs. Buckingham: Ah, I’m so proud of you, sweetheart, not just because of your accomplishments but because of the wonderful woman that you have grown into. I am so blessed to have you as my daughter.

Paris: Oh mom.

Mrs. Buckingham: Mm. So good to see you.

Hope: You know, you can say, “I told you so.”

Liam: Okay. A, I would never do that. And b, I honestly don’t think deacon had anything to do with this.

Hope: Well, you know what I think? I think that maybe I was being selfish, trying to insert my dad into everyone’s life and I should have been more sensitive–

Liam: No! Absolutely not. Listen, everything’s gonna be okay. Your mom’s already in a meeting. That’s like, that is a great sign!

Hope: I know. No, I’m– I’m– I’m really happy that she’s being really open about that night and… I’m grateful that she is getting help and that she is not keeping anything from us.

Brooke: Vodka?

[Sighs] What would I do without you?

Ridge: We’re in this together.

Brooke: I’m just scared, ridge. I have no idea what happened that night. I don’t know how I made such a terrible mistake.

[Shallow breathing]

Deacon: Morning sunshine.

Ridge: Hey. Where’d you go?

Brooke: Ah, I was just thinking about that night. I don’t ever want to relapse again.

Ridge: You won’T. I’ll make sure you won’T.

Brooke: Well, thank you. I don’t want to lose you.

Ridge: Lose me? You kidding? Come on.

Brooke: I don’t want to, ridge.

Ridge: For better or for worse, right? As long as we’re honest with each other, we can face anything. Come here. Do you struggle with occasional nerve aches

Carter: Listen, man, uh… I have a confession to make. I already knew about the uh, the engagement ring. Quinn told me. She was pretty proud of her work, said it was beautiful.

Zende: It is. I had it all planned. Dinner at paris’ favorite restaurant. I was going to propose to her there. And then I rented out this rooftop downtown with this perfect private view of the fireworks.

Carter: Wow, man.

Zende: We didn’t even make it to dessert before the night was over. She talked about being young and single. I mean, she’s not wrong. We never put a label on what we are but I mean, it felt like it came out of nowhere.

Carter: I’m really sorry, zende.

Zende: Maybe there’s competition. All that talk about not wanting to be tied down and having so much to experience. I mean, you’re friends with her. You talk to her. I kind of feel like there’s someone else. But if it’s not me, then who else could it be?

Paris: So how long are you staying?

Mrs. Buckingham: Wow. Anxious to get rid of your mom already, huh?

Paris: Not even. If I had it my way, you’d stay in L.A. Forever but I know you need to head back soon. What would the hospital do without you?

Mrs. Buckingham: Actually, I handed in my resignation.

Paris: What?

Mrs. Buckingham: I know–

Paris: You loved working there.

Mrs. Buckingham: I did. I do. But it was time for a change.

Paris: So now what?

Mrs. Buckingham: Well, there is another reason for my visit to L.A.

Paris: Oh?

Mrs. Buckingham: I have a few offers. One for the hospital down the street, in fact.

Paris: So you’re looking for work here?

Mrs. Buckingham: I don’t want to cramp your style but I wanted to see how you feel about me moving here.

Paris: That would be awesome!

Mrs. Buckingham: Yeah?

Paris: And if you need a reference, I got your back.


Mrs. Buckingham: I missed

Paris: I missed you too, mom.

Mrs. Buckingham: So if you’ll have me, I am here to stay.

Paris: Well in case my, “that would be awesome,” wasn’t big enough let me say it again, that was awesome. Be awesome. I’d love for you to stay in L.A. Ah!

Mrs. Buckingham: Ah!

[Paris laughs]

Liam: Listen to me. All your concern is is a testament to what a wonderful, caring, attentive daughter you are. And if there were anything, anything at all to pick up on, you’d have picked up on it.

Hope: I just– I hate that this is even happening. You should have seen her, liam. She was– she was so hard on herself and she was scared. Like, her life was completely out of her control and she had no idea why.

Brooke: I’m gonna do

everything in my power to keep

you away from our family

and ridge will agree with me,

especially steffy,

finn and hayes.

Sheila: Oh, brooke. When are you going to learn to not push me?


Ridge: Alright. That was the last of it. Bar’s empty. We don’t need temptation in this house.

[Brooke sighs]

Brooke: Thank you.

Ridge: Can I say something? You’re not only the hottest but you’re also the strongest, most courageous woman I’ve ever known.

Brooke: Ridge–

Ridge: Yeah, no it’s true. You could have found a way to hide this from me but you didn’T. You told me because you trust me.

Brooke: Yeah, but how can you trust me? How can you trust me when i don’t even know how i started drinking again?

Ridge: Well, it really doesn’t matter. It was a one time thing. It’s ove–

Brooke: No, that’s all it takes, ridge. It takes one time to relapse. And all of this hard work in recovery just to– just to start it all over again.

Ridge: Okay. It’s a disease. We gotta fight it and we’re all here to help you. We’re all here. I– I wasn’t here because I decided to leave at a– at a time like this. I’m–

Brooke: Don’T. Stop. Don’t blame yourself–

Ridge: No. You needed me here and i wasn’t here so I’m sorry.

Brooke: No, ridge, it wasn’t your fault.

Ridge: Well, you know what? I will never leave you again. What do you say to that?

Brooke: Good.

Ridge: Okay.

[ Dramatic music ]

Brooke: I’m just so ashamed.

Ridge: Don’t be.

Hope: Alcoholism is a disease. No guilt, okay? None.

Brooke: Honey, I let you down. I let myself down.

Ridge: Because you had a drink? No, you didn’t let anybody down. All right?

Brooke: It was more than just one drink. I fell back into my old habits and I kept pouring and pouring. And… I don’t even how I made it to bed that night. I don’t know why I lost my willpower. I don’t know what drove me to drink.

Taylor: Huh. A weird vibe from hope?

Steffy: Yeah. Acting concerned about brooke because of new year’s eve.

Taylor: Hm. What about it?

Steffy: Well, dad wasn’t home. Brooke was all alone. And hope says that brooke was pretty affected by it. I know, right? It just seems so, so weird. But hope is really worried about brooke because she hasn’t been the same since that night. And hope has no idea why.

Bill: So, she really liked it. You’re not pulling my leg.

Liam: Are you kidding me? You saw her face light up at christmas. She loves it. It’s like her new favorite stuffed animals. Or stuffed… currency, I guess. I don’t know. She’s napping with it right now. Where do you get it?

Bill: Hm.

Liam: Where did you find it?

Bill: Oh, oh, ah. Well, I found it on–

Liam: Oh my god.

Bill: Okay, fine, fine. I didn’t actually find it. I had my assistant… do my shopping. And by the way, this one does a much better job of shopping than alison ever did.

Liam: This one does a much better job? This one does. You don’t know her name, do you?

Bill: Of course, I know her name. Her name is–

Liam: It’s wooo–

Douglas: Liam?

Liam: Yeah.

Douglas: Oh hey, dollar bill.

Bill: I love this kid.

Liam: What’s up?

Douglas: I think the wifi is out.

Liam: Ah, well, guess what? Perfect timing because screen time is up. And plus, I think I see a soccer ball out there with your name on it.

Douglas: Okay.

Bill: Later buddy.

Liam: Have fun or at least try.

Douglas: Bye.

Liam: Bye.

Bill: Anyway, I’m not here to talk about names and presents.

Liam: Ah yes. I know I just got off the phone with wyatt. He said–

Bill: I’m not here to talk about eye on fashion either. I’m here for you. Things have been crazy at work. We don’t get much one on one time. But I will make time for it, if you need me. I will make time for you.

Liam: Well, thank you. And I know.

Bill: So, how are you son? Really. Things okay with you and hope, now that that convict, deacon sharp, is back in her life?

Liam: YeaH. I’m not really sure how to answer that. Yes, we’re okay. No, it’s not easy.

Bill: How could it be? Hope’s making a terrible decision and dragging you into it with her.

Liam: Believe me, I’m still extremely weary of deacon. And I’m just, uh… I don’t know, I’m just trying to be supportive of my wife because I know that’s what hope needs right now. So.

Bill: Ah liam, hope is going to learn the hard way, yet again, that wherever deacon, that two bit con man goes, trouble follows.

Taylor: Maybe brooke is mad about ridge not making it home. I mean, I would– I would hope not. I mean, clearly, she knows that he’s running a company. Sometimes, that means–

Steffy: No. Hope claims brooke wasn’t upset about that.

Taylor: If hope is sensing something, saying that brooke hasn’t been the same… upset or not, ridge’s absence clearly triggered something in brooke.

Ridge: It doesn’t matter why it happened. Important thing is you told us, and you want help.

Hope: That’s right. One day at a time. You came forward, you opened up.

Brooke: I called my sponsor too. But, why wasn’t I able to fight this urge? It’s something I’ve been able to do for so long and… what made me slip up this time?

Hope: Are you sure you don’t know why? Was there some underlying reason?

Brooke: No. No, I honestly don’t know.

Ridge: We’re also sure that deacon had nothing to do with this?

Brooke: Deacon. Why even bring him up? I already told you that I’m the only one to blame here, so–

Hope: You know, maybe it’s my fault. You know, I’m the one that’s been so vocal about wanting my dad in my life. Maybe added a lot of stress and made you want to drink.

Brooke: Honey, don’t think this has anything to do with you.

Ridge: And I’m not– I’m not saying that. I didn’t say that you were adding stress. It’s– deacon is the only thing that’s new around here, right? So, did he say something? Did he rattle you in any way?

Hope: No. I was there the entire night. He didn’t do anything like that.

Brooke: Yeah, no. Deacon was fine. Nothing was said.

Ridge: All right. Let’s leave that alone for now. What do we do? What’s next?

Brooke: Well, I definitely think that I need to go to a meeting, as soon possible.

Ridge: Okay. I’ll go with you.

Brooke: No, ridge. You don’t have to do that.

Ridge: I want to. I want to be by your side.

Hope: And I’m here too, mom. Anything you need. I just I hate that I left you all alone on new year’s eve. If I had known that you were struggling, I would have stayed.

Brooke: Honey, please put that out of your mind. Please.

Ridge: How would you find a meeting? Is there an app? There something– I don’t know.

Brooke: Why don’t you go get my purse and I’ll look one up, okay?

Ridge: Okay.

Brooke: Thank you. Thank you, sweetie.

Hope: Mom, you may have been alone on new year’s eve, but you’re not alone now, okay?

Brooke: Oh, honey, I love you.

Hope: Love you.

Steffy: Hope’s not the only one noticing something off with brooke. Dad mentioned it too.

Taylor: Interesting.

Steffy: Yeah. He said that she hasn’t been the same since he got back.

Taylor: Well, it sounds like it really is about his absence that night. Consciously or not, it sounds like she’s holding it against him.

Steffy: Dad’s absence… or is it deacon?

Taylor: Deacon?

Steffy: Yeah, hope invited him to the party.

Taylor: The plot thickens.

Steffy: This whole deacon situation has caused dad and liam so much grief. They deserve better.

Liam: This is only going to go one of two ways, either hope is right and deacon has changed. In which case, you know, okay, great. I’m happy to be wrong. Or–

Bill: You’re not wrong. Deacon is going to cause all kinds of damage. Look, we both know how this is going to go down. Hope’s degenerate father… is going to show his true colors. He can’t help himself. Now, before you start lecturing me, I just want to tell you that I came here–

Hope: No. Nothing to say. I know how you feel. Now, can I have some alone time with my husband?

Bill: As I said, I’m here for you. I’m here for both of you. When the inevitable happens.

Liam: Thanks, dad.

[ Hope sighs ]

Liam: Well, he means well.

Hope: Not when it comes to my father. And frankly, I don’t really care about what bill thinks is inevitable. So.

Liam: Hey, hope. What’s wrong?

Hope: It’s my mother.

Ridge: You got this. We hit the bike trails every weekend

Steffy: I do think something’s wrong with brooke, something major.

Taylor: Yeah. She’s keeping it to herself, that can’t be good. That’s true. I hope she gets some support… and soon.

Hope: I felt like something has been off with my mom ever since new year’s eve.

Liam: Well, what do you mean by off?

Hope: Well, it’s just… she’s been on edge. You know, she hasn’t been herself and I’ve been trying to figure out what’s wrong.

Liam: I mean, ridge didn’t come home that night like she expected him to. Could just be that.

Hope: No, I mean she might have gotten temporarily upset about that. But this… this feels like something deeper and… then I got to thinking that maybe it does have to do with my dad. And maybe she does resent me.

Liam: I mean, your mom could never be resentful of you, but go on.

Hope: Well, I have been pushing really hard for my dad to be a part of my life and that is someone who my mom has tried really hard to– to put in the past and forget about and… maybe I am asking too much of her.

Liam: You should talk to her. She’ll open up.

Hope: Well, I don’t have to because I walked in on ridge and my mom having a very… intense conversation.

Liam: Like an argument? Were they arguing?

Hope: No, no, but it was emotional. And my mom has been hiding something since new year’s eve and I knew it. I should have stayed. I should have had you put the kids to bed. And–

Liam: Okay, stop, stop. What’s going on?

Hope: She drank, liam. After we left that night… my mom drank.

Brian: And there I was, watching my brother pass around the eggnog, trying to pretend like I wasn’t salivating. But… what was I? Practically drooling. Telling myself, why not just take a sip? Have one cup. Or two. Or 20? But I didn’T. Thanks to my sponsor.

Sponsor: Proud of you, brian.

Brian: I imagine I’m not the only one that the holidays were tough for. Anyone else ready to share? Perhaps, one of our new faces.

Brooke: Um. Hello. I’m brooke and I’m an alcoholic. Nope

Steffy: If something’s going on with brooke, it’ll affect dad.

Taylor: Possibly or whatever it is, it could just go away.

Steffy: Mom, this is brooke we’re talking about. When she’s in trouble, everything blows up in her face. And who’s the one that picks up the pieces? It’s dad. I’m just glad you’re back in town because I don’t think it’s going to be long until dad needs someone to lean on.

Liam: Whoa, you serious? Your mom, she drank on new year’s?

Hope: Yes.

Liam: I am sorry. I didn’t even know she was tempted. Everything seemed normal.

Hope: She doesn’t even know why she had the desire. But after we left, she… she caved and she opened up the vodka.

Liam: Oh my god, hope. I’m so sorry.

Hope: Yeah, I am, too. I’m just, I’m mad at myself for not realizing how vulnerable she was that night. If I had noticed something that night, I could of–

Liam: Okay, no, no, no. Wait, wait, wait. Wait, the one thing that you cannot be doing right now is blame yourself. We all thought ridge was on his way home and that they were going to have a lovely evening together. And even so, well, it’s not like you can’t leave your mom alone. She went years and years without drinking. Okay, so please do not stress yourself out right now by– by thinking you were supposed to know that she would suddenly relapse. That is not your responsibility.

Hope: I know that. It’s just, it’s sad. Knowing now that she needed help, that she was all alone, probably staring at that bottle, trying not to drink. But then she gave in. She didn’t even come down here to the cabin. She didn’t call us. I left my mom all alone on new year’s eve.

Liam: Well, we’re all here now. All of us, including ridge, for whatever she needs.

Hope: He was being so caring and supportive. He’s actually taking her to a meeting right now.

Liam: Good. That’s great. See, that’s great. Your mom’s got support. She’s got resources. She’s got a ton of people in her life who love her and will do anything for her. It’s good.

Hope: I know I should be… happy about that, but I can’t help but worry. I mean, all these years of sobriety, just… so, I just need to figure out, you know, what changed. There–there had to be a reason. There had to be something. There’s something there that I have missed because why– why would it happen now?

Liam: Now, listen.

Douglas: Mommy, is everything okay?

Brooke: I… had a bit of a relapse.

Brian: If you aren’t ready.

Brooke: No, no, it’s okay. I think it’d be good for me to talk about it. This is my husband, ridge.

Ridge: Yes. Yes, I’m ridge, I’m not an alcoholic, but I’m married to one and… I’m going to see her through this.

Brian: A relapse? So, you’ve gone through this before?

Brooke: Ah. Yeah, yeah, I’ve had my moments. I mean, for the most part, I had everything under control. I mean. I’ve gone to meetings through the years. Here and there, and… I’ve been in recovery for a long time. So, this just kind of came out of nowhere.

Brian: Nowhere?

Brooke: I mean, everything was fine. It was new year’s eve–

Brian: A problematic holiday.

Brooke: Well, maybe for some people, it could be, yes. I could understand that. But for me, it wasn’T. And I was drinking non-alcoholic champagne. And I wasn’t even thinking about the real stuff. We’re just having a beautiful night. It’s my daughter and my grandchildren and her husband, her father. It was like a normal holiday. There were noisemakers, and we’re just celebrating. The kids we’re having a great time and then they went upstairs to watch a movie. Well, they fell asleep and that’s when everybody left. And I was just there. I was home waiting for my wonderful husband to get back so we could celebrate the new year together. But he called and said that um, he was going to be delayed. And that’s when…

Brian: And what?

Brooke: When… it just switched. Inside of me, I just had this, this overwhelming feeling to drink. To drink real alcohol. I don’t know where it came from. Honestly, I just… I reached for the bottle of vodka and I poured myself a glass, and I just– I just slugged it back. It’s like I had already been drinking. I… I mean, all those years in recovery and…

Brian: You said you were alone.

Douglas: Mommy, what’s wrong?

Hope: Oh, it’s nothing, sweetie.

Douglas: You seem sad.

Hope: Well, I–I am a little.

Liam: Yeah, but it’s okay to be sad sometimes, right?

Douglas: What are you sad about?

Hope: Oh, it’s just something to do with grandma. But it will be okay.

Liam: Yeah.

Douglas: I saw grandma kissing santa claus.

Hope: What?

Douglas: I saw grandma kissing santa clause.

Liam: Hey, buddy. Not right now.

Douglas: Okay.

Brooke: What?

Brian: When your husband was away on business, your daughter left with her kids, so you were all alone.

Brooke: We’re going to need to just keep this secret, deacon. Alone.

Brooke: Something happened on new year’s eve.

Ridge: Tell me.

Brooke: I was drinking last night. Oh my god. We kissed.

Deacon: We did.

Brooke: Oh, I’m sorry, ridge. I feel so guilty.

Ridge: Talk to me.

Brooke: Oh, I don’t even know how it happened. I’m– I’m very ashamed. And when you find out what happened, you’re gonna be upset, too. But I have to tell you what I did.

Taylor: Okay, that sounds great. I think so, I might have a seminar booked for that time, but I will have my assistant–

Sheila: Alcohol free or the real stuff? Brooke is never gonna know the difference. I predict you’re going to have a very festive new year’S.

Taylor: Sheila?

Sheila: Yes.

Taylor: Where were you just now?

Sheila: Oh. I was just feeling hopeful for the new year for all of us.

Taylor: Well, that’s a– that’s a good place to be. Well, if there is nothing else, I… kind of need to get back to work.

Sheila: Yeah, of course. I do… want to thank you just one more time, taylor. I am– I’m dedicated to working on myself, really. I want to get help for whatever it is that I need to do so that I can be more involved in finn’s life.

Finn: I missed our morning kiss.

Steffy: So you drove all the way over here to make it up to me?

Finn: Those lips are worth every minute of travel.

Hope: Oh, sorry.

Steffy: Oh, hey. Hope, come on in.

Hope: Hi, I didn’t mean to interrupt.

Finn: No, you’re not. I’m– I’m the one keeping steffy from doing any work but, uh, happy new year, by the way.

Hope: Oh, you too. I hope you had a fun new year’s eve.

Steffy: We did. How about you?

Hope: Oh, it was– it was nice. It was an early evening.

Steffy: I know my dad couldn’t make it to celebrate with brooke.

Sheila: I’ve destroyed every opportunity that I’ve ever had with my other children, and I don’t want to loose finn too.

Taylor: You seem really determined to turn your life around.

Sheila: That’s because I am and that is the truth. Taylor… I mean, whatever I have to do to be a part of finn’s family, and I really feel that, with your help, I can actually show people that I am not that person any longer.

Taylor: With my help. Oh, sheila, I– I won’t take you on as a patient. There’s too much history between us.

Sheila: Of course, of course. Before I forget though, uh… I made this for hayes, and I was just… hoping that you could get that to him for me, right?

Taylor: Of course.

Sheila: I am so determined to be a good mother to finn and a loving grandmother to hayes.

Steffy: I can tell by your reaction, brooke was pretty bummed.

Hope: Oh, she– she’s fine, she was just looking forward to spending the evening with her husband.

Steffy: Yeah, but my dad had an important business trip. I’m sure brooke could understand that.

Hope: She gets it, she’s not upset with ridge at all.

Finn: Everything okay? You seem a little stressed.

Steffy: Yeah, did something happen on new year’s eve we’re not aware of?

Brooke: I don’t know what came over me.

Ridge: Logan… you’re my wife, we’re in this together.

Brooke: I was doing so well. I was so in control for so many years. And you were being so supportive. And now I need to– I need to face it, ridge. I slipped up. I relapsed, I drank on new year’s eve. Our strength, our power, our purpose…

Taylor: I want to see you make real improvements, sheila. You have A… a long way to go to… prove yourself. Whether you put in the work or not is entirely up to you. I want the– that is what I want though. I don’t like who I was and I want to transform myself. I do, I want to… I want to earn your trust and heal… old wounds. I am dedicated to becoming a kinder, more stable person.

Taylor: I hope you mean that, for everyone’s sake. Now, I am going to continue to be extremely cautious. Is there a chance that maybe in the future you will get to spend more time with finn and hayes? Possibly. But not now. Not yet. I may have opened the door for you just a little bit on christmas eve so that you could spend time with finn and hayes. But steffy and her husband have set very clear boundaries with you. And you need to respect their wishes.

Finn: I’m sorry things didn’t turn out the way you hoped.

Hope: Oh, it’s okay. Liam and I were grateful to get the kids to bed early. I just… I just feel bad for my mom.

Steffy: Okay, so he missed one. I don’t understand why brooke has an issue with it.

Hope: I don’t know, I just… I feel like something has been off with my mom since that night, but… anyway, I should get going, but it was good seeing you both.

Finn: You too.

Brooke: If you want your father in your life, that is your choice. But I can’t have him or his influence in mine.

Ridge: What happened? I was just so excited to be with you on new year’s, you know? I mean, after the year we had, I thought it would be really good for us.

Ridge: I wanted that too, more than anything in the world.

Brooke: And I’m not blaming you, ridge. I know… you wanted that too. I mean, I was disappointed I was, but I accepted it. At least I thought I had. Well, that’s when something just kind of switched inside of me. I don’t know why or– or how or– or why… I was drinking this non-alcoholic bottle of champagne, and I wasn’t even thinking about alcohol at all. And I was having a good time, you know, I was laughing and playing with the kids. And it was a wonderful night. It was nothing out of the ordinary. And then when everybody left… that’s what I felt it. I felt this… overwhelming urge to drink… real alcohol. And I don’t– I don’t even know where that was coming from, you know, I– I didn’t understand it, it just was overpowering. And I pulled that vodka bottle out and I– I opened it and I poured myself a glass and… you know, I didn’t want it. I wanted more and more and I wanted to drink it. And I just was– I just drank it.

Ridge: Okay. It’s okay. Doesn’t your family deserve the best?

Finn: Sounds like brooke might have had a more difficult new year’s, then we realized. What do you think that’s all about?

Steffy: I’m not sure. But I am surprised deacon was invited.

Finn: Yeah, me too. Although it doesn’t sound like it caused any problems.

Steffy: Yeah, that’s a firsT. I’m relieved we didn’t have any unexpected visitors.

Finn: Like my mom.

Steffy: I was wondering if your mom was gonna make an appearance on new year’s eve. I’m glad she didn’T.

Taylor: Perimeters have been set. You must abide by them, sheila.

Sheila: Oh. Yeah. Yeah, there are rules to follow. I know that.

Taylor: Good. That means no showing up unannounced, you.. can’t go anywhere unless you’re invited.

Sheila: Right, got it.

Taylor: You understand why there need to be constraints.

Sheila: Yeah. Of course I do, and I really can’t blame you.

Taylor: Sheila, if you could just see your life in its entirety, you would see the… the obsessive tendencies over the years and– and it always leads to A… pattern of troubling instability. Which I witnessed firsthand when you shot me. But I believe in recovery, sheila, for everyone. But you’re going to have to put in a tremendous amount of effort to become the person you want to be. Someone trusted. Someone who doesn’t hurt people.

Sheila: I will be that– that woman, but I thank you so much for having… faith and believing that I can accomplish that.

Taylor: Remember why you’re doing this.

Sheila: I do. I do know why I’m doing this. But the fact that you… that you believe that I can make those changes in my life, taylor, it really… speaks to your character, the person that you are, with your kindness and– and your– your compassion. That is something that brooke… would never have.

Taylor: Sheila, I am sensing a lot of anger towards brooke. I don’t want you causing trouble for anybody.

Sheila: Even brooke.

Taylor: You haven’t done anything to her, have you? Sheila, promise me that you will not lash out at brooke.

Sheila: I promise.

Brooke: Why did I drink, ridge? What brought this on?

Ridge: It’s okay.

Brooke: No, no, it’s not okay.

Ridge: You’re only human. It happens, we’ll deal with it.

Brooke: I don’t even understand what happened, I mean, what was going through my head?

Ridge: Don’t beat yourself up about it. It’s gonna be all right. I going to ask you something, it’s not because I want to upset you, it’s because I want to get to the bottom of this, the same way that you want to get to the bottom of it.

Brooke: I don’t really have any answers.

Ridge: You said deacon was part of the evening. Did something happen? The worst decisions of your life were because of deacon. Did he do something?

Hope: Mom? Ridge… what is it?

Brooke: It’s nothing, honey. Honey, I’m fine.

Hope: No, mom, there’s obviously something going on. What is it?

Brooke: I don’t want to worry you.

Hope: Mom.

Brooke: All right. I admitted to ridge that… something happened on new year’s eve. I drank.

Hope: You–

Brooke: Yes, I drank, honey, I slipped up, I had a relapse.

Hope: Mom, it’s okay.

Brooke: Honey… I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I brought in ensure max protein,

Taylor: Hello, ms. Ceo.

Steffy: Hey, mom. I’m so glad you stopped by.

Taylor: Oh hi, sweetheart.

Steffy: If dad were here, he’d like to say that he’s co-ceo but–

Taylor: Oh, okay, well, we all know who runs the place around here, don’t we?

Steffy: That’s true. I mean, if I’m going to be real, it’s granddad, but…

Taylor: You know, I just saw eric in the hallway. Honey, I love that you are working alongside your father and your grandfather and working with your brother. Oh, I have so many wonderful memories here at forrester creations.

Steffy: Yeah, well, it’S… it’s home. Especially now that my cute mama’s here. Look at you in this outfit.

Taylor: Thank you. I’ll have to come by more often.

Steffy: You should. And we could grab lunch now that you’re here for good.

Taylor: Oh, I would love that. Yes, and my treat any time. Maybe we’ll even invite finn.

Steffy: We could do that. Finn was actually just here. He had to run back to the hospital. Hope stopped by too.

Taylor: Really, well, that’s a busy morning. How is she?

Steffy: Yeah, I got a really… weird vibe. She seemed concerned about brooke.

Sheila: I am going… to prove to finn, steffy, taylor and everybody else that I am a changed woman. As long as no one finds out what it did to brooke on new year’s eve.

Hope: Mom, how… did this happen?

Brooke: I have no idea. Honestly, I… it’s really confusing to me, I wasn’t missing alcohol at all.

Ridge: I don’t want anyone to feel defensive, but I was asking your mom before you walked in if… if deacon was here when this drinking thing happened.

Brooke: Seriously?

Ridge: Seems that deacon is always around when bad things happen. Simple question was– was deacon here when you were drinking?

Brooke: I’m the only one to blame. I’m sorry. I’m sorry I let everybody down.

Hope: Mom, please, don’T.

Brooke: I risked everything and for what?

Ridge: Don’t be so hard on yourself.

Hope: It’s a disease, we know you don’t have a choice. We know you don’t want this to happen, but it did, and it’s okay because we love you and we’re your family and we’re going to help you through this.

Ridge: Sweetheart, we’re all here. You have all the support in the world.

Brooke: I don’t want to lose you.

Ridge: Why would you lose me? That’s silly.

Brooke: I’m sorry, I, um,

Hope: Mom, hey, you have nothing to apologize for.

Ridge: And nothing to feel guilty about.

Brooke: I regret it. I really do.

Hope: Hey, mom, we’re all human. None of us are perfect. We all– we all make mistakes.

Brooke: You have no idea.

Hope: Well, I wish I had stayed. I shouldn’t have left you all alone on new year’s eve. I’m sorry.

Brooke: So deacon is gonna haunt me. He’s going to haunt me forever. We’re going to need to just keep this a secret, okay? Forever.

Brooke: Vodka.


Deacon: Morning sunshine.

Hope: Mom? Mom? You okay?

Brooke: Oh, hi, honey.

Hope: I was just wondering if you had seen dad because I haven’t heard from him and I thought maybe you might know why.


Taylor: Yeah.

Assistant: Dr. Hayes?

Taylor: Yeah?

Assistant: There’s somebody here to see you.

Taylor: I don’t have any patients today, who is it?

Sheila: Hi. I said it was personal, maybe i just didn’t make myself clear.

Taylor: Sheila, this is a surprise.

Ridge: Your mother is a smart woman, but inviting sheila to your house for christmas eve seems like it’s going to have consequences.

Steffy: Well, mom thinks if we give sheila some time with finn and the kids, it will diffuse her obsessive behavior.

Thomas: You know, she did leave. It’s not like she was hanging around.

Steffy: Thank god. I can’t stop thinking about her holding hayes. You have no idea how hard it was for me. Allowing my child to be put in that monster’s arms.

Thomas: Okay. But we were all right there. We weren’t going to let anything happen to hayes.

Ridge: You give that woman an inch and something will happen.

Steffy: Nobody was happy about sheila in the house. But I do trust mom on this. She’s the professional and she knows how obsessive personalities work.

Ridge: I’m sorry. The goal is still to get her out of our lives, right? Out of fin’s life? Out of hayes life? Reverse psychology doesn’t work with sheila. Your mom knows that. She’s insane. She’s crazy. At this point, she probably thinks that she’s friends with your mother.

Taylor: Thank you, audrey. I have a moment to speak with miss carter.

Sheila: Ms. Carter. Very formal. Dr. Hayes.

Taylor: Well, this is my place of business. What can I do for you, sheila?

Sheila: Well, I do show up unannounced and you’re probably wondering why?

Taylor: Yes. I am.

Sheila: You can’t figure it out. You’re a very perceptive woman, taylor. World renowned psychiatrist. I mean, your insight to the human psyche… you really have no idea why I’m here?

Brooke: Why would I know where deacon is?

Hope: Well, i just– I hadn’t seen him since he was over here and I thought, you might know.

Brooke: No. No, I don’T.

Hope: Oh, okay. Well, we had left before he did. I didn’t even get a chance to ask him what his plans were for the night. Actually mom, he came over the other day and liam and him, they had a good talk.

Brooke: Honey. Deacon is your father and you want him in your life. And I can understand that. You want to spend time with him. You want him to see the kids. That’s your choice. But I am no longer comfortable having him here in this house.

Hope: You’re no longer comfortable. Mom- why? What– what happened? What changed? Kim is now demonstrating her congestion.

Ridge: I’m not saying your mother made a mistake. She’s the expert.

Steffy: She thinks fighting sheila the way we have been will only make things worse.

Thomas: Well, keep your friends close and your enemies closer, right ?

Ridge: Well, that saying doesn’t work with sheila because she is psychotic.

Thomas: It doesn’t matter how psychotic she is. We still had control of her on christmas eve.

Steffy: Yeah, sheila wasn’t going to get away with anything.

Ridge: She did get away with something, honey. She was in your house and that doesn’t sit right with me.

Steffy: You and me, both. My stomach was in knots, but finn and I were on high alert.

Ridge: That’s not what christmas should be. It is a time of celebrating.

Steffy: She didn’t show up on new year’S.

Ridge: That’s good news, right? At least she wasn’t invited for that.

Steffy: She didn’t ask to come.

Thomas: Seems like mom made the right call then.

Ridge: Maybe she did. I’m glad you guys had a good time. I, for one, did not because I didn’t make it home to spend new year’s with brooke. She was there. With hope and her family. Deacon.

Thomas: Oh, come on. You had to be kind of glad to miss that, right?

Ridge: No. And brooke just hasn’t been the same since I got home.

Steffy: So, she’s upset because you weren’t there?

Ridge: I don’t know. It’s something else, I don’t know what it is.

Steffy: I know you’re worried about brooke being irked with you. But I would be more concerned about what brooke is going to do about deacon.

>Ridge: Hmm. I’ll see you later.

Thomas: Does dad seem more concerned than he’s letting on?

Steffy: Well, dad wouldn’t have any reason to be worried if he wasn’t with brooke.

Taylor: Why don’t you just tell me why you’re here sheila? There’s no reason to play games.

Sheila: Games? I know what you’re doing taylor. I know… the person that you are, the doctor that you are, and I never could have imagined that your legendary kindness and caring would extend to someone like me. You’re a remarkable person. And that you– you’re showing sympathy and– and letting me in. Giving me a chance. That is something that your nemesis brooke, never would allow to happen.

Brooke: I can’t tell you what to do in your own life, hope. But I can’t have deacon here.

Hope: Okay. But can you at least tell me why? Because I don’t understand the sudden change in attitude.

Brooke: I’ve always had reservations about your reunion.

Hope: Reservations that i had thought you put behind you.

Brooke: Honey, I have been as accepting as I can. Up to a point.

Hope: Okay, okay, wait, wait, stop. Because now you’re starting to sound like ridge. Did he say something when he got home? Did he actually have– he had a problem with deacon being over here, didn’t he? He did something. He said something.

Brooke: No, no, he didn’t do anything. And he’s not angry about anything. I’m angry, at myself

Hope: For what?

Brooke: It’s not ridge, honey. It’s not. It’s me. It’s me.

Brooke: I should have gone away with ridge, like he wanted.

Hope: Is that why you’re so upset? Did ridge make you feel bad about staying home?

Brooke: No. He’s been very patient and very understanding.

Hope: Okay. So then what? Because you seemed like you were having a good time new year’s eve. I mean, we were all enjoying ourselves.

Brooke: Of course, we were, honey. I love spending time with my family, with my children, with my grandchildren. But I can’t risk alienating ridge. I love him too much. And, you know, he’s had concerns.

Hope: Yeah, concerns about my dad.

Brooke: Look, if you want your father in your life, that is your choice. But I can’t have him or his influence in mine.

Hope: All right, if you say that’s what you need, then fine. But… I don’t understand where this change is coming from, but you have been really supportive and really understanding. So, I don’t want to push it. But I know you, mom. I saw the two of you getting along. So… this just… doesn’t feel right.

Steffy: You think I should let it go, don’t you?

Thomas: Look, dad’s committed to brooke.

Steffy: Maybe he always will be. I can’t help hoping that dad will just wake up and realize he made a mistake. He would be so much happier living a scandal free, drama free life with mom.

Taylor: Brooke, isn’t my nemesis.

Sheila: Okay. What, adversary, rival, thorn in your side?

Taylor: Or maybe for you. I’m sensing some resentment.

Shelia: It’s because I do resent her. I mean her cruel, you know, vicious attitude toward me. What I really resent is all of the hard work that I have done. Completely ignored.

Taylor: All the work you’ve done on yourself?

Sheila: Yes. Yes, I’m trying my best to practice as much acceptance and accountability as I can. And it’s really the only way to move forward, to be honest. You know, to accept my decisions and… and when I have wronged people and I’ve hurt them, I need to apologize for that. And that’s what I’ve been trying to do. And brooke just won’t hear it.

Taylor: Okay, I– I hear you. You sound frustrated.

Sheila: That’s because I am. I just want to prove myself. I want people to see that my priorities have changed.

Taylor: And what are those priorities?

>Sheila: I just want to start over. I– you know– I want to– I want to be a better person, make a better life for myself. Isn’t that what new year’s is all about anyway? Right? Renewal. New year’s, so you must have had a wonderful time, huh? Spending it with the family. Even though ridge couldn’t be there. I know he couldn’t be there for for brooke, either. He was out of town.

Taylor: Well, he did his best to get back.

Sheila: Well, did he? Did he make it back by midnight?

Taylor: No.

Sheila: Well that must have put a damper on brooke’s evening.

Deacon: Fall off the wagon

one night and get

right back on.

Brooke: That’s right.


Ridge: Oh, good. I wasn’t sure you got my text.

Brooke: What text?

Ridge: My text saying that I was coming home. I just wanted to make sure you were here because I want to talk to you. About new year’s eve.

Brooke: What do you want to talk about?

Ridge: You haven’t been the same since I got back. So, I wanted to apologize for not… not being here and celebrating with you.

Brooke: You don’t have to apologize. I mean, do I wish you were here. Yes, more than you know. But I don’t blame you, ridge. I blame myself. I just– when you’re not around, it’s– everything’s different. I just lose all sense of stability.

Ridge: I am here now. We can celebrate now, we can celebrate tomorrow. We can go to paris. Go to milan. We can go to detroit and watch hockey, huh? What is it? What’s wrong? When they’re sick, they get comfortable anywhere

Taylor: I have no idea what brooke did on new year’s eve.

Sheila: Yeah, well, knowing brooke, she was by herself anything could happen, right? I mean, ridge was gone and brooke can’t do anything without a man next to her. Okay. All right. That wasn’t very nice of me. But in all honesty, she hasn’t been nice to either of us. Okay. I think that even if ridge were home, there’s no way she would have let him come to see you. And you’ve gotten used to spending holidays without ridge, but brooke hasn’T.

Taylor: I– sheila. I was fine. I was with my family.

Sheila: Yeah well, thanks to you, I– I got to experience that myself. But new year’s was a little different.

Taylor: Mm, you didn’t– you didn’t do anything special on new year’s?

Sheila: Well i had a few sips of champagne, and I just got started on some resolutions.

Taylor: Okay. Well, that doesn’t sound so bad.

Sheila: No. No, but I don’t need to tell you how difficult new year’s eve can be. I’m– everybody else going out having a good time. And no one to kiss when that clock strikes midnight. Especially if you’re lonely or depressed. I don’t have a drug or alcohol problem.

[Phone rings]

Taylor: I– I need to take this.

Sheila: Should I go?

Taylor: Um. Well, it’s not confidential. Unless you have someplace to be.

Sheila: No. No, I think I’ve done everything that I needed to.

Taylor: Yes. This is dr. Hayes. Oh, hi. Yes, I did.

Mm-hm. Oh, okay. And when is the appointment?

Ridge: Brooke. Hi. I know you. I know you better than I know myself. So, I know something is wrong. What is it?

Brooke: It’s not you, ridge. Not at all.

Ridge: I know I’ve had a rough time. It’s been bumpy. We’ve been out of sync. And I thought new year’s would be great for us to reconnect, you know, fresh start.

Brooke: And that’s what I wanted. More than anything.

Ridge: Me too. You got to know, I tried, I tried to be here. I wanted to be here.

Brooke: I know, I know. I don’t blame you. I don’T. It’s not your fault.

Ridge: Something happened, right? So, what is it? You can– you can tell me anything. You can share anything with me. You know that, right?

Brooke: I want to. I want to… be able to share with you, ridge. I mean, I need to come to terms with it. You’re right, something did happen on new year’s eve and… I really don’t know. I don’t know how it went so wrong.

Ridge: Hey. Tell me.

Brooke: I mean, we were all here, I was having a great time… with the kids. We were decorating, we were playing and then they went upstairs to watch tv.

Ridge: Deacon showed up.

Brooke: Yeah, hope invited him. He wanted to spend time with hope and with the kids.

Ridge: And he didn’t stay long?

Brooke: When the kids fell asleep, hope and liam took them down to the cabin. And deacon left. And I was here alone. And I was getting ready and looking forward to sharing new year’s eve with you. I really wanted that ridge and…


Ridge: Go on.

Brooke: You’re going to be disappointed with me. I know because I’m disappointed with myself. And I don’t even know how it happened. I don’t even know how to explain it. But I need to. I was just looking forward to being with you at midnight. I thought that was really important for us after the year that we had and… and I messed up. I messed up and you need to know, ridge. – Oh…oh. – What’s going on?

Deacon: Ridge isn’t coming back?

Brooke: Oh! Mm, vodka. Come on, slug one back with me, buddy old pal.

Deacon: Mm! I never stopped loving you, ever.

[Gasps] Morning, sunshine.

Brooke: Why did i drink again?

[Door closing] I’m gonna make sure you come nowhere near my family, especially steffy, finn, and hayes.

Sheila: Never, ever mess with me, brooke, especially when it comes to my son. You will never keep me away from finn. No matter what I have to do.

Liam: Oh, the song, the song. Yes, I believe it’s “I saw mommy kissing santa claus,” not grandma.

Douglas: No.

Liam: All right. Fine, it can be grandma. Listen, I almost have the diaper bag ready. I have snacks. I have drinks. Jacket, backpack, go, go, go, go, go! Also, help your sister with her jacket.

Douglas: Okay.

Liam: Thank you.

[Knocking at door]

Deacon: Hey, liam, I saw hope on her way up to the main house, she didn’t see me. Can I come in?

Liam: You just want to wait here for her?

Deacon: No, if you let me in, I’ll explain.

Liam: Sure.

Deacon: Thanks.

Liam: Yeah.

Deacon: Are the kids here?

Liam: They’re actually about to head out with donna. Listen, I don’t want to be rude, but, um… what– what do you want?

Deacon: It’s about hope.

Carter: So, to be clear, when we kissed, you really hadn’t planned on that?

Paris: No, it just happened.

Carter: Agreed. Don’t get me wrong, you’re… you’re beautiful… smart, sweet.

Paris: Well, when you put it that way, you weren’t planning on kissing me?

Paris: So all those kind things you just said about me… you weren’t trying to start your new year off with a bang?

Carter: What? No, I was just saying that I think very highly of you, if you couldn’t tell. But no, I was not making a play for you. After you came back here from dinner with zende and you told me what you had to do so he wouldn’t propose, I just… I just wanted to be there for you. As a friend. And that’s what we are, right?

Liam: All right, love you guys, have fun and listen to your aunt donna.

Deacon: Is it possible that they got any bigger since I just saw them? Hey, look, liam, I… I get that you and I are very different guys. I mean, I’d probably hazard to say we have zero in common, but there is one thing that’s very important to both of us.

Liam: Which is what?

Deacon: Our love for hope.

Ridge: Well, I’d wait as long as I could, but we’re running out of hot water. And I get it, you got to be tired too, right? I’m sorry, I didn’t even ask you. I was too busy talking about myself, as always. How did it go? How was new year’s with hope, and liam and the kids?

Hope: Are you really sure you want to know? I mean, talk about a crazy new year’s eve. Had to be your craziest ever, right, mom? Okay everyone,

Deacon: Liam, you and i haven’t really talked since I got out of prison. And the thing is, man, we used to talk.

Liam: Yeah, I just… I don’t really see that doing any good.

Deacon: Look, I get it. You’re… you’re afraid that I’m gonna hurt hope again, that’s why you don’t trust me.

Liam: Well, yeah, deacon, can you blame me? I mean, come on.

Deacon: No, actually, I, I don’T. And if I’m being completely honest, I admire you for it and I appreciate it. I mean, it’s nice to know that my daughter’s got a husband who’s always looking out for her. What?

Liam: Well, listen, you and I both know that hope is very much in charge of her own life.

Deacon: Yeah, yeah.

Liam: But if I see heartache around the corner, I’m going to say something, even if she doesn’t like what I have to say.

Deacon: And you know why that is, don’t you?

Liam: Yeah. Because she thinks you’re not the person you once were, she thinks that prison has… changed you for the better.

Deacon: I am changed for the better, but not because of all my years in a prison cell. Because of hope. It’s because of her writing to me when I was in prison, despite having every reason in the world to kick me to the curb. She kept the faith that I could change, that I could finally be the father that she deserves. Man, that’s all I’m trying to do. I’m trying my damnedest to do it, and I get it that there are going to be some people that will never accept me, especially ridge. I was just hoping that maybe you’d reconsider. Just give me a chance.

Liam: Kind of like what brooke’s trying to do. I got to say I was… I was surprised that that brooke invited you to new year’s eve. That I… I didn’t see that coming.

Deacon: Yeah, well, that makes two of us. That was definitely a surprise. New year’s eve was a night full of lots of surprises.

Ridge: Crazy night, huh?

Hope: Oh, yeah, it was real wild. Uh, champagne was flowing, non-alcoholic, champagne was flowing. There was goodies for the kids. You know, these noisemakers, and hand clappers, and hats.

Ridge: Well, it sounds like you rang in the new year in style.

Hope: Uh, I think we did. Although, you should know, ridge, that my dad was here, only briefly, though. The kids fell asleep watching their favorite movie and we were all gone well before midnight and we wanted to give mom some time to get ready before you came home. Right, mom?

Brooke: Yeah.

Hope: So, we were all hoping you could make it last night. I’m guessing that didn’t happen?

Ridge: Yeah, I was hoping that too. But there’s just… lot of things. So I got here this morning.

Hope: Well, just know that you were missed, especially by mom.

Ridge: And by deacon, probably, right? Was he on his best behavior?

Brooke: Uh, I’ll just say that the night was definitely not the same without you, ridge. I missed you so much. Really, so very much.

Ridge: Come here.

[Upbeat acoustic music throughout]

Paris: I still can’t believe zende wanted to propose.

Carter: Yeah. He loves you.

Paris: I know. And I’m so lucky, I just don’t think I’m ready.

Carter: Yeah, yeah, I understand. And you saved zende from the embarrassment and hurt of having his proposal rejected. So don’t beat yourself up over this. You’re a good person, paris. There’s a reason why zende loves you so much. Don’t forget that.

Liam: I see that you’ve committed to helping me with this new year’s resolution.

Hope: Hmm. The one about more kissing and less talking?

Liam: Yes, exactly. Talking’s so overrated. Oh, how is… how’s brooke? She must be happy ridge is back.

Hope: Uh, yeah. Um, she seemed excited to have him back, and it is nice to see my mom light up whenever ridge is around. I know they’ve had their challenges lately with my dad and all that.

Liam: Oh, speaking of, guess who came to the cabin while you were up at your mom’s?

Hope: My dad… was he looking for me?

Liam: No, me. We actually had kinda a good talk.

Hope: Wha-really?

Liam: Yeah, really.

Hope: Oh my gosh, I’m so glad. I want the two of you to get along.

Liam: Yeah. Well, it turns out there’s this one really, really speific thing that we both have in common. We love you. So…

Hope: Well, that means a lot to me. Two of the most important men in my life, you know, trying to come together.

Liam: I wouldn’t go that far. With the coming together.

Hope: Well, okay, fine. Fair enough. But I am just, I’m grateful that you are trying.

Liam: Yeah. A lot of gratitude going around lately. I know steffy’s really grateful that taylor’s back in town. It’s kelly’s grandmother. She likes having her mom around.

Hope: Yeah, although it is kind of weird the timing of it all that taylor just happens to be back in la right when mom and ridge are dealing with deacon, and all that.

Liam: Yeah, no, that’s true because deacon is one thing, taylor is another. And if there’s one thing we’ve learned is that your mom and ridge do not need the added stress from either.

Brooke: Oh, come on, deacon. Slug one back with me, buddy, old pal. Cheers. The bell bottoms! Oh my god. You put the bell bottoms on and you…


Deacon: I’ve never worn bell bottoms in my entire life.

Brooke: You would like, strut down the boulevard.

Deacon: Oh, stop it. I’ve never walked like that, either. Come on.

Brooke: I think we need this.

Deacon: Yes, of course.

Brooke: Finish the look.

Deacon: And that is the look. Yes!

Ridge: Deacon was here for new year’s?

Brooke: Yeah, I was about to tell you when hope arrived.

Ridge: Did he just show up uninvited because that’s usually what he does, right? What’s going on with you? Huh? Deacon do something to upset you?

Hope: What exactly are you implying here?

Liam: I’m not implying, there’s no… it’S… it’s not an implication so much as I just want you to be aware of of…

Hope: Of what?

Liam: Of the, I don’t know, the dynamics that are in play right now. Like you like where things are headed with your dad, right?

Hope: Yes.

Liam: Even though I have my own, you know, issues with deacon.

Hope: Liam, you just said you had a good conversation.

Liam: I did. I did. But it doesn’t change how ridge feels about deacon, right? That, like that’s still a strain on his relationship with your mom.

Hope: I am well aware of that.

Liam: I know you’re aware. Look, I know–

Hope: Liam, I don’t want there to be friction in my mom and ridge’s relationship. Okay? Even with the way ridge’s been treating me lately with trying to pressure me off the property. And…

Liam: I know, and he absolutely should not have done that. I’m just saying that clearly, deacon being in your life is bothering ridge, and I don’t think we should make the mistake of pushing deacon on ridge too much because… it could backfire.

Ridge: What’s going on? You seem off. Is it because of deacon?

Brooke: I’m sorry, ridge. I, I didn’t sleep well. I never do, when you’re not here. And when you told me that you were going to be back, but you never came home, I’m just not myself when you’re gone. That’s all.

Ridge: I’m sorry. Hmm. Oh, yeah. Sorry I didn’t make it back in time.

Brooke: Me too. More than you know.

Ridge: All right, I’m going to make a promise to you. Next new year’s, you and me, somewhere, I don’t even care where you are, I’m going to find you, and I’m going to be with my hot, beautiful wife. But before all that, we have a whole year of possibilities, right?

Brooke: Yeah. Uh huh.

Ridge: And I know we have issues with deacon, but I’m going to let that go because there’s no way he’s going to have anything to do with our relationship. He’s not going to break us up, he’s not going to do any of that stuff. Okay?

Brooke: Mh mm.

Ridge: Because I love you. And–

[Cell phone ringing] Okay, that’s the prince, I was supposed to call him, tell him that I landed, and I forgot. So I need a talk to take this. Don’t go anywhere.

Brooke: Okay!

Ridge: Hey. No, I did. I’m sorry.

[Phone ringing]

Deacon: Hey. I didn’t expect to hear from you again. What, what’s going on? Everything okay?

Brooke: No, I’m not okay. I’m anything but okay.

Deacon: Nothing happened last night.

Brooke: What are you even talking about? I relapsed. I started drinking again. I don’t even know how that happened.

Deacon: All right, look. I get it. I get it, okay? It was bad. You fell off the wagon. But you know what? You’re going to go to your meetings. You’re going to turn this around but you’ve got to stop torturing yourself. Now, has ridge come home yet?

Brooke: Yes, he’s home. I was about to tell him and, and hope walked in.

Deacon: Thank god she did. What are you– brooke, listen to me. I know you’re feeling a lot of guilt.

Brooke: Of course I’m feeling guilty. Look, I want to be honest with ridge, I want to open up to him. But our marriage has been really shaky lately, and I don’t want to just push us over the edge. I don’t want to lose the man that I love. I don’t want to lose my husband.

Deacon: That’s not going to happen, but you have got to get it together.

Brooke: Okay. I’m going to go to meetings and I’m going to stop drinking. And… as far as that kiss and ending up in bed with you–

Deacon: On your bed, above the sheets. Brooke, it was one kiss. Nothing else happened.

Brooke: Deacon, it’s gonna haunt me. It’s gonna haunt me forever. As much as I want to open up to ridge, I don’t think it’s a good idea. Look, we’re going to need to just keep this secret. Okay? Forever. Say it.

Deacon: Forever.

Brooke: Goodbye.

Brooke: I’m gonna make sure you come nowhere near my family, especially steffy, finn, and hayes.

Sheila: Oh, brooke. You are always so sure of yourself. But, you know what? After my little bit of handiwork last night, seeing deacon inspecting non-alcoholic champagne bottles this morning, I have a sneaking suspicion that your world is already starting to fall apart.

[Airplane whooshing]

Brooke: I’m serious, sheila. I’m going to do everything in my power to keep you away from our family and ridge will agree with me that I’ll make damn sure he knows how crazy you are.

Deacon: Morning sunshine.

Carter: Paris, there’s nothing wrong with wanting to be single and playing the field a bit. It won’t work, you know? Trying to lose yourself in work. Avoiding the elephant in the room. We need to talk about what happened last night. You, you headed out so quickly last night we didn’t get a chance to talk.

Paris: About?

Carter: The kiss, we kissed, paris.

Paris: Right. About that.

[Airplane whooshing]

Brooke: Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god. What are you in? What are you doing here?

Deacon: This isn’t what it looks like.

Brooke: You were in my bed!

Deacon: No, no, I was on your bed, okay? I was, I was above the sheets.

Brooke: What are you even doing here?

Deacon: You were too tired, too tired to walk, so I put you to bed, you fell right asleep. Listen to me. Nothing happened, nothing.

Brooke: Oh god. My head, my head is pounding. Oh my god, I was drinking last night. Psoriatic arthritis, made my joints stiff,…

Paris: But isn’t that what people do on new year’s eve? They kiss.

Carter: Maybe, I don’t know.

Paris: Wait, don’t tell me you haven’t been kissed on new year’s eve before?

Carter: Paris.

Paris: Okay, I’ll stop, you’re right.

Carter: About what? I’m just asking.

Paris: Exactly, you’re right to question what happened, I’m honestly doing the same thing. Going back to last night, before I showed up here, I just didn’t want to hurt zende, things were moving way too fast. A proposal?

Carter: Yeah I, I understand.

Paris: I know you do. And that’s what makes you so incredible, because you genuinely care. You’re one of the most caring people I’ve ever met. It blows me away, when I told brooke about you and quinn, I expected you to make my life miserable here at forrester, but somehow it seemed like you supported me more than before. I helped blow your life up, and you still cared about me.

Carter: You’re being honest, I admire that about you.

Paris: I admire that about you too.

Brooke: Okay,

Deacon: If no one’s here, why are we whispering?

[Brooke shushing]

Brooke: Oh my god, it’s ridge, he’s on his way home. Okay, okay. Don’t just stand there help me clean this up! I don’t understand what happened, I was drinking non-alcoholic champagne last night, why was I feeling so buzzed?

Deacon: You were definitely feeling something, do you remember doing the vodka shots?

Brooke: Why didn’t you stop me?

Deacon: I tried. You said you didn’t want to drink alone, brooke.

Brooke: Oh my god, I was drinking, and we were in bed together.

Deacon: I was on the bed, nothing happened.

Brooke: Oh yeah, well that doesn’t make me feel any better, deacon. I was still hanging out with the man that my husband despises more than anything, and I relapsed. And we kissed. Oh my god, we kissed.

Deacon: We did.

Brooke: Ah, you said nothing happened.

Deacon: It was nothing.

Brooke: You can’t be here anymore, you can’t come here, deacon.

Deacon: What?

Brooke: I, I can’t see you.

Deacon: Brooke, I know things went off the rails last night, I mean, but come on, let’s not overreact here. Look, I get this may not be the best time to tell you this, but I was a complete gentleman, alright? I behaved. I even tucked you in.

Brooke: We were still in bed together.

Deacon: I was on top of the bed, I don’t know what happened, I guess I must have fallen asleep next to you. Look, I get it, I get that you’re freaked out, especially about the drinking, but we didn’t do anything wrong.

Brooke: I did, and you are going to be a constant reminder of everything that happened last night.

[Car pulling in] Oh my god, oh my– that’s ridge pulling in, you got to get out of here, you’ve got to go, you can’t come back, deacon, ever. Please, just go.

Deacon: All right.

[Door opening]

Ridge: Hey. I couldn’t wait to get off that plane, I am so sorry I missed new year’S.

Brooke: Oh no, gosh, fine.

Ridge: Look at you.

Ridge: God, I missed you.

Carter: Look, uh, I understand that last night got a little crazy, you avoided a proposal that you weren’t ready for.

Paris: Thanks to you, you always have my back.

Carter: Well, that’s true.

Paris: Look, I really didn’t expect us to kiss.

Carter: Yeah, me either, and I wouldn’t have told you about zende if I knew that was going to happen. Zende’s a friend and so are you, and I really don’t want to complicate things.

Malcolm: Here you go.

Deacon: Malcolm, you are my hero.

Malcom: No problem.

Deacon: Mm hm. Brooke, have you been drinking?

Brooke: My god, deacon, no, non-alcoholic, it says right there, can you read?

Deacon: Hey, malcolm, do you happen to have one of those non-alcoholic champagne bottles, the one you took over to brooke logan’s?

Malcolm: Uh, yeah, let me, actually, yeah, right here.

Deacon: Cool, thanks.

Malcolm: Of course.

Man: Hey, do you know where the bartender went?

Deacon: Uh, he’ll be right back.

Man: Alright. Thank you.


Sheila: Oh, I didn’t realize the new year’s festivities were still going on.

Deacon: We are not supposed to be seeing each other.

Sheila: Yeah, well, brooke can tell you what to do, but she can’t tell me what to do. And the last time i checked this is a public establishment, looks like i couldn’t have come any sooner, you’re already drinking champagne.

Deacon: This is, uh, non-alcoholic, just thought I’d try it.

Sheila: Hm, and?

Deacon: I don’t know, it’s kind of like a veggie burger, you know? Similar, but definitely not the same?

Sheila: Okay, so, what? Did you get to see brooke last night?

Deacon: I did.

Sheila: Hm, did you guys bring in the new year’s with champagne?

Deacon: This stuff, yeah, sort of, hope and liam and the kids were there.

Sheila: And ridge?

Deacon: Business trip.

Sheila: Oh, well lucky you. You got to be with the family, with brooke.

Deacon: Yeah, it was nice.

Sheila: I’ll bet it was, I’m sure all that was needed was for brooke to loosen up and let her hair down, am I right?

Ridge: What a night. The prince was really happy. He looked good, his wife, we put her in this grey number, and right before the party started, she ripped something, and I wish I would have had angelo here, but no, it was me, trying to fix things, but it was okay. It worked out, they looked beautiful.

Brooke: I’m glad it went well.

Ridge: It did. They’re just good people, you know? They’re just so appreciative. I know what he likes, he likes…

Brooke: Why was i feeling so buzzed?

Deacon: You were definitely feeling something. Do you remember the vodka shots?

Brooke: Why didn’t you stop me?

Deacon: I tried, you said you didn’t want to drink alone. Brooke…

Brooke: Oh my god, I was drinking, and we were in bed together.

Deacon: I was on the bed, nothing happened.

Brooke: Yeah, well that doesn’t make me feel any better, deacon. I was still hanging out with the man my husband despises more than anything. And I relapsed, and we kissed. Oh my god, we kissed.

Ridge: Just missing my beautiful wife.

Brooke: Oh

[Awkward laughter] Ridge, that’s nice.

Ridge: I’m sorry.

Brooke: Nah, it’s okay.

Ridge: Listen, if I had known that I wouldn’t make it back, I never would have left.

Brooke: You have nothing to apologize for. I just love you so much.

Ridge: I love you. What’s going on?

Brooke: I just, you know, I don’t like it when you’re not here, especially with everything that’s been going on this past year. I just love you, that’s all. Better skin from your body wash?

Sheila: Okay, okay, “sheila, what did you do for new year’s eve?” Deacon, thank you so much for asking me. I went to see taylor. I wanted to thank her for convincing steffy to let me come over for christmas eve. It was just so kind of her, I would never imagine that she would ever stick up for me.

Deacon: You mean after you shot her? Yeah, no, I’d say taylor’s pretty terrific.

Sheila: Okay, you know, you’re better when we talk about you, so it must have been a really great night, right? Especially since ridge wasn’t there to storm in.

Deacon: What’s with all the questions?

Sheila: You know what? Why, why are you so edgy? What are you? Hungover?

Deacon: It was new year’s eve.

Sheila: So? A little gathering at brooke’s turns into a little party?

Deacon: Can you just stop the interrogation?

Sheila: Alright, must not have been all roses. Okay? I just thought that spending time with brooke is what you really wanted to do.

Deacon: I went to see my daughter.

Sheila: What’s wrong with you today? I mean, if last night didn’t live up to your expectations you could have come to celebrate with me, oh! No. Wait, you couldn’t because your crush, brooke, wouldn’t let you see me. You’re a grown man, deacon, are you really going to let her tell you what to do?

Deacon: If it means seeing my daughter.

Sheila: Brooke’s bad news, she always has been. You know, she always insists on putting her nose where it doesn’t belong, and that is infuriatinG. Keeping me away from finn, and hayes, telling you that you can’t see me anymore? Okay, what happened last night? Really?

Deacon: Nothing.

Brooke: I just love you so much, you know? I never want you to go away on the holidays ever again.

Ridge: I won’T. I promise. You know what I think? I think we have a great year ahead of us.

Brooke: I hope so.

Ridge: Yeah, I said think, I don’t mean think, I know we will, you know why? Because we have each other. You know, we don’t always agree on things, but as long as we’re together we can face anything. We can face sheila, deacon, it doesn’t matter. Hey, happy new year.

Brooke: Happy new year.

Ridge: So, can I ask you a question?

Brooke: Yeah?

Ridge: What’s, uh, what’s going on under that?

Brooke: Oh, yeah, that was, you know, if you got home in time for new years, it was a little surprise.

Ridge: I’m here now. So maybe the thing to do is for me to take a shower, and then we’ll see what’s going on under that thing.

Brooke: Yeah, I like that.

Ridge: I’ll be back.

Brooke: Mmm, vodka, the real thing.

Deacon: Alright brooke , this is not a good idea.

Brooke: Knock one back with me, buddy old pal.

[Slurring laughter]

Deacon: I’ve never worn bell bottoms in my entire life!

Brooke: You just strut down

Deacon: Oh stop it , I’ve never walked like that either, come on.

Brooke: To finish the look.

Deacon: Now that is a look. Oh, you’re pouring another one already, huh?

Brooke: Yes, of course, of course, it’s new years eve.

Sheila: No, no, no, no, I couldn’t push you too hard deacon, I don’t want you getting suspicious, but drinking non-alcoholic champagne to test it, why else? Because you and brooke indulge, and now you’re questioning what happened last night. Oh, brooke, brooke, brooke, your world is about to turn into shambles, and it couldn’t happen to a more deserving person.



Brooke: What did I do? What did I do? What happened? Why did I drink again?

Recap written by Brenda

Paris and Carter discuss the kiss they shared last night. She minimizes it by saying it was just a New Year’s Eve kiss. He wants to clarify that he didn’t intend for that to happen and he doesn’t want to complicate things with Paris and Zende.

Sheila recalls switching the label on Brooke’s champagne bottle. Brooke wakes up horrified to find Deacon next to her. He points out that he is on top of her bed, not in it, and he insists that nothing happened. She realizes that her head is pounding because she drank real alcohol last night. She remembers kissing Deacon. She tells him that even if nothing else happened between them, he can’t come there anymore because he will be a reminder. Deacon tastes the non-alcoholic champagne at the café. Sheila conspicuously runs into Deacon and suspiciously interrogates him about Brooke. Deacon tells her that nothing happened and leaves. Sheila concludes to herself that Deacon was testing non-alcoholic champagne because her plan for Brooke to drink worked. Meanwhile, Brooke tries to act normal around Ridge while she desperately tries to remember what she did last night.

Brooke: You’re sure you’re not going to make it home tonight? Ridge, it’s new year’s eve.

Ridge: I know. Weather’s only getting worse but we’ll wait it out. We’ll see what happens here, but I… think it might be a done deal.

Brooke: Okay, well, keep me posted.

[Sighs] I love you.

Ridge: I love you, too.

Sheila: Was that really so wise, brooke? Threatening me?

Brooke: I’m serious, sheila. I’m gonna do everything in my power to keep you away from our family, and ridge will agree with me. And I’m going to make damn sure he knows how crazy you are.

Sheila: Cheers, brooke.

Steffy: Are you sure you’re going to stay up ’til midnight?

Kelly: Yeah.

Steffy: Well, you know what?

Kelly: What?

Steffy: It’s almost time. Yes, it’s almost time.

Finn: Yeah.

Steffy: And that means you–

Finn: The countdown is about to start. Look at that. Okay, so let’s–

Steffy: Get some noise–

Finn: Grab some noisemakers. Right? All right, this one.

Thomas: Uh, steffy…

Steffy: In greenland or somewhere, just go with it.

Taylor: Different time zones. That’s one of your father’s old tricks.

Steffy: Have you spoken to dad today?

Taylor: No. Should I have?

Steffy: Well, I just don’t think an old acquaintance should be forgotten. At least not by dad. Especially you!

Zende: Thank you.

Paris: Thanks. So, um, this has been great. What do you say we get the check and maybe split it down the middle?

Zende: Nah, I brought you here. I’m buying. Plus, we haven’t even had dessert yet. Just look at that sugary goodness, soon to be our future.

Paris: That’s kind of cheesy, right? When couples are so into each other like that in public. Maybe I’ll understand it when I’m their age, but, uh, I can take my own bites, thank you very much.

Zende: Their age?

Paris: Yeah, I mean, we’re– we’re so lucky. We’re young and single and we don’t have stuff tying us down. I don’t know about you, but I would like to appreciate that part of my life for as long as I can.

Zende: You want to appreciate being single?

Paris: Yeah, don’t you? I don’t know, it’s just something about the end of the year that gets me thinking about the future and all the possibilities, and I’m enjoying this ride that we’re on, but we still have so much life to live. And someday that’ll come… marriage and settling down, but not any time soon.

Thomas: Three, two, one..

[Hayes cries]

All: Happy new year!

Steffy: Give me a hug, kelly. Happy new year, baby.

Thomas: In greenland.

Steffy: Just go with it.

Taylor: Oh, they’re so sweet.

Thomas: I know. I know, they’re– they’re done.

[Overlapping chatter]

Kelly: Pretty.

Taylor: Oh, that is a gift from… someone. Sheila.

Thomas: Why?

Kelly: Ow.

[Steffy gasping]

Finn: You okay?

[Kelly cries]

Sheila: My son. I’m finally getting a chance to be with you all because of taylor of all people. And brooke wants to try to keep me away from you? Let her try.

[Brooke gasps]

Brooke: I can’t believe this.

Deacon: Ridge isn’t coming back?

Brooke: Just a stupid storm is grounding all the flights for some reason. Oh! Oh, no.

Deacon: I got it. I got it. Don’t worry about.

Brooke: That was my only bottle. Oh…

Deacon: All right, here we go. Yep, that’s it. Oh, at least it didn’t break! Oh, my god. New year’s eve, all alone.

Deacon: It doesn’t have to be. I could stay if you want. Brooke, I’m alone, too.

Paris: I’m all for marriage, maybe five, 10 years down the line, but I’m young and there’s so much I want to experience. And that’s why we work so well together, because I know you think the same way. We’ve always kept things loose and casual and that feels good.

Zende: Yeah, sure does.

Paris: These are exciting times for the both of us, zende. We both have these incredible careers and we have each other, but we also have our independence. So let’s enjoy this time, enjoy each other, and let’s make this year ahead the best one yet. Yeah.

Steffy: I know. I don’t think we’re going to get our fabrics for a while.

Thomas: Hey. Is kelly okay after her boo-boo?

Taylor: Yes, she is. Finn’s reading her a story.

Thomas: Hmm.

Steffy: Sheila did have a hand in it. So, now that you’ve invited sheila over for christmas eve and she stopped by your office, are you bffs now?

Taylor: Gosh, I– I want her to change. I want her to get better. I– I really do, but I don’t know. I– I think it’s best to keep an eye on her. The kids had a good time.

Thomas: They did.

Steffy: Yeah.

Thomas: That’s true. And I’m glad I got to see that.

Taylor: I wish douglas was here– I’m sorry.

Thomas: Hey. Me too. Me too. But you know what? Douglas is with hope tonight.

Liam: Douglas, aren’t you supposed to be in bed?

Douglas: Where’s mom? Beth woke up, so she’s– she’s singing her back to sleep. Come here. Come here. What’s going on?

Douglas: I can’t find peanut butter.

Liam: Peanut butter, the rabbit?

Douglas: Yeah, I can’t sleep without him.

Liam: Huh? Well, that means we gotta find him.

Brooke: You want to stay? You’ve had too much to drink if you think that’s gonna happen.

Deacon: Oh, I’ve had too much– oh, there you go. Yeah, I’m not the one stumbling around, knocking bottles over.

Brooke: Stumbling? Stumbling? What–

Deacon: Brooke, have you been drinking?

Brooke: My god, deacon. No, non-alcoholic. It says right there. Can you read? You know, I walk by this liquor cabinet every single day and I’m not tempted to have a drink. Although, tonight, I should be allowed.

Deacon: What are you suggesting?

Brooke: Uh, a toast, maybe?

Deacon: Uh-huh.

Brooke: Mm. Vodka.

Deacon: Okay. All right.

Brooke: The real thing.

Deacon: Brooke, this is not a good idea.

Brooke: Oh, stop it. Stop being such a downer.

[Deacon sighs]

Brooke: Ooh! Ooh-hoo-hoo. Wow!

Deacon: Christ– that was good. Okay.

Deacon: All right.

Brooke: Mm. You gonna join me?

[Deacon sighs]

Brooke: Oh, come on, deacon. Come on. Slug one back with me, buddy ole pal. It’s new year’s eve.

Deacon: All right. All right. Okay. All right. Well, if you’re in, I guess I’m in.

Brooke: Okay, gotcha.

Deacon: Oh, boy.

Brooke: There you go. One for you and one for me. Cheers.

[Deacon coughs] Most bladder leak pads were similar.

Paris: Thank you. If you hadn’t have sent that text..

Carter: So, what happened?

Paris: Well, I was able to steer the conversation about how great it is to be single. And as for me, I’m– I’m just not ready for marriage and I tried to be as kind and loving as possible. And eventually he– he got the hint.

Carter: So he never took out the ring?

Paris: No. I just couldn’t let him do it, but I didn’t want him to feel rejected. I don’t know, I just never wanted to hurt zende.

[Notification rings]

Steffy: Dad.

Thomas: Oh.

Steffy: Hey! Happy new year!

Ridge: Hey, steffy. Happy new year.

Steffy: Oh. I’m going to put you on speaker, okay? How was your flight? Are you home?

Ridge: Funny story. I’m not going to make it home tonight.

Thomas: What? Really?

Ridge: We’re grounded, so I’m not going to see brooke for new year’S.

Taylor: Oh, I’m sorry to hear that.

Ridge: Doc? How ya doing? Happy new year. Did you pull out the cards, yet?

Steffy: Cards?

Ridge: Ah, you remember? Your mom would pull out cards to make sure you stay up ’til midnight.

Taylor: I was just about to suggest it. I wish you were here to join us.

Ridge: Well, we’ll do it some other time. I’m happy you’re back. The kids are happy, too.

Taylor: Well, not as happy as I am. Safe travels home, ridge. See ya next year!


Thomas: Good one.

Liam: All right, so it’s definitely not in the bedroom. I don’t think it’s out here, so do me a favor, just try to, like, think really, really hard. Where was the last time you saw him? Grandmas! While– while we were watching the movie! I think.

Liam: So, how about just for tonight, we get another stuffed animal, just to fill in? How’s that?

Douglas: But I want–

Liam: I know, believe me, I know. I get it. I totally get it. But you can do this, man. You can do this. You can go without peanut butter for one night. I have faith in you. I believe in you.

Brooke: Oh!

Deacon: Wait, wait. I was just–

Brooke: Yeah, I can’t–

Deacon: I was thinking how much you– you hated me when you first met me.

Brooke: No, I didn’t– I didn’t hate you. It was the– it was the clothes you wore.

Deacon: What are you talkin’ about?

Brooke: Yeah, you had those really tight leather pants and–

Deacon: Yeah, that was a strong look. Are you kidding me?

Brooke: Oh, wait, wait, wait. Wait, wait, wait. Wait!

Deacon: You didn’t like my leather pants?

Brooke: No, the bell bottoms! Oh, my god. You’d put the bell bottoms on and you– you went, “whoo!”

Deacon: I have never worn bell bottoms in my entire life.

Brooke: You would, like, strut–

Deacon: Oh, stop it. I’ve never walked like that, either. Come on. The hell’s wrong with you.

[Both laughing] Wait, wait, wait. What is– what is this? What are you doing with this? You savin’ this for– wait, check this out.

Brooke: Oh, my–

Deacon: Ready?

Brooke: Okay.

Deacon: Deacon claus.

Brooke: Ah, yeah. Ooh.

Deacon: What do you think? You like it? Huh?

Brooke: Wait, wait. Let me see. Okay, okay. Okay, it’s missing one thing.

Deacon: Ah.

Brooke: Yes, I think– I think we need this.

Deacon: Yes, of course.

Brooke: This will finish the look.

Deacon: And that is the look.

Brooke: Yes, I love it!

Deacon: Ah, you’re pouring another one already, huh?

Brooke: Yes, of course. It’s new year’s eve.

Deacon: Okay, new year’s eve, right.

Brooke: And I haven’t drunk like this with you in a long, long time. And it feels good, right? It’s not like I’m gonna do it again.

Deacon: Fall off the wagon one night, ya get right back on.

Brooke: That’s right. Drink it up.

Deacon: Mm–

[Brooke gags]

Deacon: Boom.

Brooke: Wait.

[Deacon chuckles] That went down hard. Woo! Oh, my gosh.

Deacon: You know, this is exactly what I used to– I used to dream about this, you know, when I was alone in my cell.

Brooke: What? Drinking with me?

Deacon: No, no. I just– I used to dream about being a part of hope’s life.

Brooke: Oh, yeah.

Deacon: And a part of yours. Just spending time with you, you know? Just enjoying ourselves, having fun like this. Reminds me how great we were together.

Carter: I know it wasn’t easy but zende’s better off knowing the truth.

Paris: Yeah?

Carter: Yeah. And paris, there’s nothing wrong with wanting to be single and playing the field a bit. It’s normal.

Paris: You don’t think I made a mistake?

Carter: Being honest? It’s never a mistake.

Paris: Oh! I’m just– I’m just so confused. I mean, I care about zende and I never wanted to hurt him. I mean, he was going to propose to me–

Carter: Yeah, it’s okay. It’S… it’s okay.

Taylor: You know, we don’t have to play rummy, this is just something your father and I used to do.

Finn: Ah, no, it sounds fun.

Steffy: Yeah, fun until you turn into mr. Competitive.

Finn: Oh, what? Who, me?

Steffy: Yeah. You. Don’t deny it.

Taylor: Oh, steffy, I’m so happy to see you in such a loving, wonderful relationship. I’m really grateful to be here, but if I ever become a third wheel–

Steffy: Mom, please.

Finn: No, that’s not possible.

Steffy: And if third-wheeling means helping out with our kids, you are more than welcome.

Taylor: Oh, it brings me so much joy to be here in their lives, and douglas’.

Steffy: And dad’s? Now that you’re back in los angeles, you could be spending more time with him. And if brooke shows her true colors…

Thomas: Then maybe he’ll realize that there’s another option out there. Maybe he’ll realize that there’s a woman he should have been with all along. I’m guessing you’re enjoying yourself right about now. Enjoying that “non”-alcoholic champagne.

[Chuckles] Next year is going to be a bitch, brooke.

Brooke: We were a lot of things, deacon, but great?

Deacon: Come on. You know we were. Look, I’m not talking about the circumstances or the pain. I’m talking about when we were alone. The connection. Don’t you remember the passion, the desire that we had? I– that was the most intense that I ever knew. And I’m guessing it was for you, too.

Brooke: Ooh, well…

[Chuckling awkwardly] Mm. You know… there. I should’ve cut you off a couple of drinks ago.

Deacon: Why? ‘Cause I’m speaking the truth? You have any idea how much I thought about you while I was in prison? About us? About what we shared? About what could happen between us if we just had the chance? And now you’re looking at me like that.

Brooke: Like what?

Deacon: Like you used to. Brooke. I never stopped loving you. Never.

Brooke: Oh, I can’t believe it.

Ridge: Well, I’m on the plane now. I told the prince I have to get home to my beautiful wife.

Brooke: She can’t wait to see you.

Liam: Ladies and gentlemen, the party has arrived.

Douglas: Mommy said I could stay up all night.

Liam: Oh great.

Brooke: Oh, hope and liam and the kids just arrived.

Ridge: I’ll see you soon. I love you.

Brooke: I love you too. Hi guys!

Hope: Hi! Somebody looks ready to celebrate!

Brooke: Yeah. Well, that was ridge. He’s on his way home. So after I celebrate with you, I get to celebrate with him.

Liam: Oh, that’s cool.

Brooke: Guess what? There are some goodies in the kitchen! Who wants to go see?

Liam: Oh, no, we’re going to be up all night.

Hope: Mom… thank you again for allowing deacon to be a part of this night.


Brooke: Of course, honey.

Hope: Thank you.

Deacon: Hey, malcolm, you got that bottle of non-alcoholic champagne for logan?

Malcolm: Right here. It’s my first stop on my delivery run.

Deacon: Great.

Malcolm: As long as you have sarah restock and get those bathrooms clean, I’m good to cut out early.

Deacon: Thanks, man.

Sheila: Alcohol free or

the real stuff.

Brooke is never going

to know the difference.

You never threatened me, brooke. No one messes with me and my family.

Finn: Kid’s napping?

Steffy: Yeah. Kelly’s charging her batteries so she can stay up for our little party.

Finn: Okay. Which sweater should I wear for a little celebration?

Steffy: Neither. Have a little time right now. Why don’t you charge me up instead?

Zende: I hope this is to your liking.

Paris: It is very romantic.

Zende: I promised you a special night. I hope it’ll be one you’ll never forget.

Quinn: Hey, carter, still working?

Carter: Almost finished.

Quinn: Do you have any big plans for tonight?

Carter: [Laughs] I’ll meet up with some friends. What about you?

Quinn: Oh, I’m just going to stay home with eric. I don’t know. What is it about new year’s eve, it makes people… hopeful. They wana… start something new in their lives.

Carter: Talking about taylor coming home to be with her family again, huh?

Quinn: No, no. I’m talking about the zende. He has got some big plans for paris tonight.

Zende: Thank you. Pa: Are you serious, zende? That champagne is expensive!

Zende: Only the best for you. Plus, we have a lot to celebrate. Pa: Yeah, I mean, you’re right. This year has been amazing.

Zende: You walking into my life was the most… wonderful, unexpected surprise. Tonight, I want to show you how grateful I am for you. All the amazing things I see in the future.

Taylor: Good news travels fast.

Woman: Clients have filled up your schedule, and the university called about a guest lecture.

Taylor: Okay, we can deal with all of that after the holiday. Go home. Enjoy your days off.

Woman: Thank you. Oh, there’s someone waiting for you–


Taylor: Sheila.

Sheila: I– I know you’re busy. I’m not going to stay

Taylor: I have a minute. It’s– it’s okay.

Woman: Thank you.

Taylor: What are you doing here?

Sheila: I don’t mean to intrude. I really don’T. I just wanted to thank you. You gave me the greatest gift christmas eve, talking steffy into allowing me to see my son and my grandson? Believe me, I just I wish there were more like you out there.

[Children chattering]


Douglas: Look at this one!

Hope: Grandma sure knows how to entertain her grandkids.


Brooke: Ah! Wonderful!

Malcolm: Your special order champagne.

Brooke: And that’s non-alcoholic, right?

Malcolm: Yes, I double checked the label. Nice house.

Brooke: Okay. [Laughs] Well, thank you so much for coming by.

Malcolm: No problem.

Brooke: Bye.

Hope: What’s that?

Brooke: Oh, it’s a bottle of the non-alcoholic, bubbly champagne. I tried some over at eric’s on christmas eve, and it was really good! Tastes just like the real thing. So I was looking forward to having a glass or two. Liz, you nerd, cough if you’re in here!

Carter: So zende asked you for a favor.

Quinn: You wanted me to design a ring. You know, one that no woman could refuse.

Carter: An engagement ring?

Quinn: Yeah, but you have to pretend you’re surprised when paris walks in and she starts flashing it around, you know, because I don’t want to be the one that let the cat out of the bag.

Carter: Well, he hasn’t proposed yet.

Quinn: No, no. But zende is going to propose to paris tonight.

Zende: A toast to new adventures with the one you love.

Steffy: I’m excited for tonight. It’s the family celebration I was hoping christmas eve would be.

Finn: I thought it was great.

Steffy: Yeah, yeah, it was. It was really nice. I mean, it was hazel’s first christmas. Kelly’s letter to santa, the cookie as it was all magical. I just… wish it was us. I’m sorry, I know sheila is your birth mother, but you got to admit it was bizarre.

Finn: Yeah, it was a little tense, I know.

Steffy: Hey, I’m just glad we’re able to celebrate tonight. And hopefully that means we won’t see sheila for a very long time.

Sheila: Just a little something, just a gift.

Taylor: No, sheila, you shouldn’t–

Sheila: It’s a cactus. It’s a cactus, symbolic…

Taylor: Of you?

Sheila: I guess so.

Taylor: Very resilient. Survive on almost nothing. And they know how to protect themselves.

Sheila: Sometimes they even flower.

Taylor: Thank you.

Sheila: I’m going to get out of here. I know you’re probably really busy, been invited to a million parties tonight and… probably gonna just go home and see the kids and the grandkids. I know that’s what I would do. Who knows? Maybe ridge will come by and it’ll just be a perfect family celebration.

Taylor: Yeah, well, that’s not going to happen.

Sheila: Why, brooke won’t let rich come see you?

Taylor: No, no. Ridge is out of town. He’s not going to spend the evening with either of his families.

Liam: Those kids cannot get enough of that movie. There’s just something about large, colorful canines, I guess. I don’t know.

Hope: Mom, is that okay? I mean, they’ve basically taken over your entire bedroom.

Brooke: Yes, of course! I love having them here. It was so nice to be able to celebrate this new year’s with you. You know, bringing in a new year together once again.

Liam: Yeah.

Brooke: And having you guys so close! Oh, I’m getting a little sentimental.

Hope: Oh, no, it’s okay! I mean, that happens on new year’s eve.

Liam: Yeah.

Hope: Yeah!

Brooke: Would you like me to pour you one?

Hope: Ohm no, I’m okay, but thank you. I think one glass of the real stuff is good enough for me.

Liam: Yeah, yeah.

Brooke: Well, you should try some of mine because this non-alcoholic, bubbly is great. Like the real thing.

Liam: Well, good.

Brooke: You can have as much as you want.


Deacon: Hello, hello.

Hope: Dad! Oh, my gosh! Join the party! Sensei.


Deacon: Brooke, thank you so much for inviting me. So where are the kids?

Liam: They’re upstairs watching a movie.

Deacon: Okay, and ridge?

Brooke: He’s on his way home from a business trip. He should be here later.

Deacon: I see you got your bottle of champagne from il giardino.

Brooke: Oh, I did. Thank you.

Hope: Should we toast? Dad you want to?

Deacon: What the hell? I suppose one won’t hurt.

Hope: Ah, I would offer to make a toast, but I feel like I will probably get emotional, and I don’t want to ruin my makeup so… uh, liam? Do you want to help out with that?

Liam: Yeah, sure. Yeah. Okay. Uh, uh… here’s to a happy, healthy, peaceful future for all of us.

Hope: Oh!

Deacon: Cheers.

Together: Cheers women choose renew life probiotics

Paris: You’ve been a little quiet.

Zende: Have I?

Paris: And a little distracted.

Zende: Um… because of you. You’re so beautiful. Actually, there is something small I need to take care of. Can you, um, would you excuse me for a minute?

Paris: Sure.

Taylor: Oh, sheila, I don’t mean to be rude, but thank you for coming by.

Sheila: No, no, no. It’s all right. It’s all right. I just, I wanted to thank you again. You, you extended an olive branch. Good things happen to good people, taylor. You’ll see.

Deacon: It was fantastic.

Hope: Well, we called it: The kids are fast asleep, so I think that means it is time to go.

Deacon: Okay.

Brooke: What? Wait! It’s so early.

Hope: Well, you know, the kids have so much fun. We wore ’em out.

Brooke: Okay! Uh, well, you know what? I would like to make a toast first before everybody leaves. Ah… to better days ahead, for all of us. And I like what you said about health and patience. What was it?

Liam: Peace.

Brooke: Peace! I like that. Yeah, I second that. May we all have a wonderful, happy and healthy future together.

Hope: Here-here.

All: Cheers.

[Glasses clink]

Hope: Oh– ooh! Excuse me!

Brooke: Mmm!

Hope: Alright! Well, mom, thank you for a wonderful party. And, dad, I’m so happy you could join us.

Deacon: Me too, baby.

Hope: I’ll see you.

Deacon: Okay. Bye.

Liam: Alright, let’s grab those kids. Outta here.

Hope: Got it all?

Deacon: I got to thank you again. Thank you so much for letting me be here and just giving me a second chance, letting me be back in hope’s life. You know, brooke, you could have shut me down. You could have fed her doubts. Instead, you saw that I was really trying and you gave me the support I needed to turn my life around. I’m a new man. And I’m so grateful to you. I’ve lost count of how many asthma attacks I’ve had.

Quinn: Zendaya’s going to

propose to paris tonight.

Carter: It’s not what she wants! Not at all.

[Phone pad clicking] So where were we?

[Message sending beep]

[Phone chirps]

[Zende sighs]

Zende: So, where were we?

Paris: That is a good question.

Zende: You’re unlike anyone I’ve ever known. My life hasn’t been the same since I met you. I feel so incredibly lucky to have you in it. That’s why I want you in my future forever.

Taylor: Hi.

Steffy: Hi! The kids are napping, so if you need to transition from like doctor mode to grandma mode, go for it.

Taylor: Oh, thank you. You know, I thought it was going to be really hard to get my practice up and running, but I’m off to a really quick start.

Finn: What’s that? A cactus?

Taylor: Yes, it’s a thank you gift.

Steffy: Wow, your patients really missed you.

Taylor: No, it’s not, actually– it’s not from a patient. I had a surprise visitor today. Sheila came to see me. She wanted to thank me again for inviting her to the house for christmas eve.

Sheila: Non-alcoholic. And the real thing. It tastes almost identical. All I had to do was switch the labels. You wanted a little bubbly for the holidays, brooke? Happy new year…

[Door clicks]

Brooke: Oh, ridge!

Deacon: Oh. I, uh, I forgot my phone.

Brooke: I haven’t seen it.

Deacon: I was right over there swapping photos of beth. I see it right there. Yeah.

Brooke: Oh.

Deacon: It’s not like me to be forgetful, you know. I must’ve gotten a little buzzed tonight. Probably should have had some of that non-alcoholic champagne your drinking. Ridge isn’t home?

Brooke: No, no.

Deacon: You look beautiful in that. Ridge is lucky guy.

Brooke: Thank you. Goodnight, deacon.

Deacon: Goodnight.

[Phone ringing]

Brooke: Oh, r–

[Chuckles] Ah! Ridge?

[Laughs] Did you land? Are you coming home?

Ridge: Hey, honey. I’m calling with news, and it’s not good news.

Brooke: You sound disappointed.

Ridge: I am disappointed. A mechanical problem, and they fixed it and just put it behind, and now the storm is coming, and we’re grounded.

Brooke: Grounded? But you promised me that you would be here. I was really looking forward to spending this evening with you. We need this time together. I love you so much.

Ridge: I know we do. And I’m– I’m sorry. And if something changes, I will let you know. But it doesn’t look like I’m going to be there for new year’S. I’m sorry.

Brooke: So I’m going to be alone on new year’s eve?

Brooke: You really are certifiable, aren’t you? Taylor may have opened the door to you just a crack, but I’m going to make sure that I slam that door, I lock it and I throw away the key. I’m going to make sure you come nowhere near my family, especially steffi, finn and hayes.

Sheila: Taylor finally gives me a chance at a life with finn and hayes. And brooke, thinks she’s gonna take that away from me. Well, no. No, she’s not. I will put a stop to brooke.

Brooke: Mm hmm. Mm hmm. Welcome home.

Ridge: If I’d known I’d get this kind of welcome, I’d left work hours ago.

Brooke: Oh, well just wait, that was nothing. I’m going to give you the most epic kiss on new year’S.

Ridge: New years. Yes… about that.

Brooke: Ridge, we invited family here, remember?

Ridge: No, I do remember, but something’s come up. I have to leave town.

Zende: Beautiful. Just like paris.

Paris: Carter!

Carter: Paris. Hey.

Paris: I have the end of the year reports for the forrester foundation.

Carter: Cool. How we do?

Paris: You tell me.

Carter: It’s very impressive.

Paris: And that means a lot coming from you, especially since you’re my new financial guru.

Paris: Don’t forget, you volunteered to be my investment guide.

Carter: I did, didn’t I.

Paris: I’m expecting to have billions by the time I’m 30.

Carter: Billions? Okay , well, I– well, I better get on that, huh?

Paris: You got time. As long as the years don’t fly by as quickly as this one did. I mean, wow.

Carter: I know, right? Can’t believe new year’s eve is right around the corner.

Paris: Yeah. You got anything fun planned?

Carter: Not really. Probably just chill at home on the couch. Maybe even research some stocks and bonds for you to invest in next year.

Paris: Wow, that’s pretty wild.

Carter: Maybe even look up some upcoming crypto.

Paris: Mmm, now you’re getting really crazy.

Carter: What about you? I assume you’ll be with zende.

Paris: Well, um…

Zende: There you are.

Zende: Zende. We were just talking about new year’S.

Zende: Yeah, it’s all coming together. I actually have something special planned for the two of us.

Brooke: It’s a holiday, ridge. What do you mean you’re leaving town?

Ridge: Finn’s asked us to dress his whole family. We’ve been working on these gowns for weeks.

Brooke: Yeah, I know. But usually you have them shipped out.

Ridge: Usually. But he wants us to be there, so we’re flying out tonight.

Brooke: We?

Ridge: We. Me and… you. Just grab some stuff. Put some things together, come on. I want to show you off.

Brooke: Oh. So, you think I’m still good enough to show off, huh?

Sheila: Brooke, you talk like you’re so perfect. You’ve never messed up in your life. Boy, I know better. I predict… we’re going to have very festive new year’s eve.

Paris: All he’s told me so far, is that he’d start the night off with a quiet dinner at el jardino.

Carter: Can’t go wrong with that.

Paris: Yeah, it is pretty much my favorite restaurant in beverly hills.

Carter: I bet it’ll be hard to get a reservation, though. It’s new year’s eve. What am I talking about. You’re zende forrester, you have so much clout. They’d probably shut the restaurant down for you.

Zende: Yeah, I don’t know about all that. But I did make a reservation a few weeks in advance, just in case. Got us a nice candlelit table on the patio.

Carter: Then let me guess, you guys hit up the clubs. Get that vip bottle service.

Zende: Actually, I was thinking about keeping it a little bit more low key. And you go back to my place or yours, and… ring in the new year. Just the two of us. Sound good?

Paris: Sounds perfect.

Zende: Great, great. And that’s just a little teaser of what’s to come– I’m gonna shut my mouth. I don’t wanna give away too much. But trust me when I say that the night will be full of surprises.

Paris: Can’t wait.

Zende: Me neither. Okay, I’m gonna leave you guys to it. I’m late for a design meeting, but I’ll– come find me later.

Paris: Okay.

Carter: Zende is really looking forward to your date.

Paris: Yeah.

Carter: I wonder what he meant by full of surprises, though.

Paris: I’m not sure. I mean, honestly… I don’t know, carter, but I’m just not ready.

Carter: Not ready for what?

Brooke: We already made plans with the kids. And as wonderful as it sounds, ridge, I’m just not up for leaving town right now.

Ridge: You don’t have to do anything. You don’t have to lift a finger. We got the jet, we got the hotel booked. All you need is a toothbrush.

Brooke: All I need is a toothbrush. This is the biggest gala of the year– and I don’t even have anything to wear.

Ridge: Oh… if only you knew a designer. We’ve got a whole warehouse full of gowns. We’ll take 10, 20 of them. We’ll do whatever adjustments we have to make on the plane. It’s all done.

Brooke: You know how these parties are. They go on and on. Yes, they’re wonderful and they’re beautiful and they’re glorious. But… people are partying and dancing and drinking till sunrise.

Ridge: I will not drink a drop, out of solidarity to your sobriety. How about that? And if we really don’t like it or it’s too hard, then we’ll leave.

Brooke: That’s sweet. I do appreciate that. But it’s not… about just that, I– I was looking forward to spending time with hope and the grandkids. I’m sorry. I hate to disappoint you. And I think it sounds great, taking a spontaneous trip like that. But the kids were so excited. I told them I had all these activities planned and all these games for them to play. And they were so excited. They’re looking forward to ringing in the new year.

Ridge: Okay. It’S… I just was looking forward to taking a trip with you. You know?

Brooke: We will, you know. Maybe next time.

Ridge: Yeah. Can’t blame a guy for trying.

Brooke: I think you should go, though. I mean, he is really a good client, right? And he is one of your best friends, and… you spent all this energy making these… exquisite looks for the ball. So…. you should go. I just hate to think that we’d be apart on new year’S. Okay everyone,

Paris: Don’t get me wrong. Zende is a sweet guy, and he treats me so well.

Carter: Of course he does. He’s very into you, paris. Everyone can tell.

Paris: And I’m into him too. He makes me smile. We have a great time when we were together. I appreciate the way that he makes me feel.

Carter: I’m sure he’d say the same thing about you. Look, zende, he probably won’t admit it, but.. he was an emotional wreck when he got back from france. He was totally gutted by the falling apart of his marriage, and… I don’t think he was really looking for another relationship. Not really, and then he met you.

Paris: Yeah. We started off as friends, and then it progressed into this. I mean, it all felt so natural.

Carter: Now you’re the it couple. It’s like you guys are getting more deeply involved by the day.

Paris: I guess so.

Carter: What do you mean, you guess so? You’re invited to thanksgiving, to christmas. The forresters, they love you.

Paris: I know, and their support means the world to me. Seeing zende has been great. But… anything beyond that?

Carter: Anything beyond what?

Paris: I mean, look at me, carter. I am young and free and I’m an independent woman. Yes, zende and I have been dating, but… I’m not looking for anything beyond that. And I’m certainly not ready for some big commitment.

Ridge: I hate the idea of being away from you too.

Brooke: I know, but you have a work commitment and you don’t want to let your friend down. And I understand that. And thank you for understanding my side too.

Ridge: Of course, I get it. You don’t want to break a promise. You want to be there for the kids. You want… sparklers. They want all of it. Yeah. It’s going to be fun. We’re gonna probably celebrate in new york time, right? ‘Cause they’re not gonna stay up till midnight.

Ridge: You know what? Fall asleep around 10. Hang on a second. I’ll tell you what. I’m gonna talk to the frenchman, tell him that I need to be here. For new years with my beautiful wife.

Brooke: Oh ridge, you don’t have to cut your trip short.

Ridge: I don’t have to. I want to. I want to be here with you. That’s what we’re doing.

Brooke: Yeah?

Ridge: Yeah.

Brooke: That’s a wonderful compromise.

Ridge: Okay.

Brooke: I love it.

Ridge: I’m sure the prince will understand and everyone’s happy.

Brooke: Okay.

Ridge: Okay.

Brooke: Then it’s settled.

Ridge: Yes.

Brooke: Oh, there’s something that I wanted to tell you. I ran into sheila.

Ridge: Oh, fun.

Brooke: Yeah, it was fun. She told me that, uh… she went to steffi’s for christmas and that taylor invited her. I mean, what was she thinking?

Ridge: She told me the same thing, and, um… I’m pretty sure taylor had her reasons.

Brooke: Oh, really? What reasons?

Ridge: She’s trying to find out sheila’s mental state.

Brooke: Hmm. It doesn’t take a brain surgeon to figure out that she’s crazy.

Ridge: No.

Brooke: That kind of person never gets reformed. So, when I ran into her at el jardino–

Ridge: El jardino? You got pasta without me? That’s not right.

Brooke: No, no, no. I went there to get a non-alcoholic bottle of champagne for new year’s, the one that eric served at christmas. It was so good. And I was gonna ask the bartender, but… deacon was there. Filling in for him when he was sick.

Ridge: Why? Why? Why do you have to– just stay away from deacon and sheila. If you want champagne, I’ll find you champagne.

Brooke: I know. I didn’t expect to run into her like that. And deacon told me that he had nothing to do with her. But I was very strong with sheila. I stood my ground. I told her as long as I was around, she was going to have nothing to do with our family, especially steffi, finn and hayes.

Shelia: Brooke thinks she could keep me away from my son and my grandson? Think again. Hi, my name is cherrie.

Zende: What?

Carter: So, what exactly are you getting at?

Paris: What?

Carter: When you say you’re not ready for a huge commitment.

Paris: All I’m saying is I’m digging where zende and i are right now.

Carter: Right. But you have the feeling he wants to get more serious.

Paris: I’m not implying that zende is going to propose to me or anything crazy like that. There’s no way. We haven’t been dating for that long. And he’s young too. He has a career. He has beautiful women complimenting in 24/7.

Carter: I don’t think he’s interested in anyone else, paris. He is more than happy and excited to be with you.

Paris: Yea his loyalty to me.

Carter: However…

Paris: Any girl would be begging to be in a relationship with a guy like zende. But I… simply just don’t want to progress this into something super committed. At least not for now. I’d like to keep it more casual. Does that make me a bad person?

Carter: Of course not. I do think you owe it to zende, to explain how you feel, though.

Paris: Yeah, you’re right. The last thing I want to do is hurt him.

Ridge: I don’t want you to keep worrying about sheila and deacon.

Brooke: Well, I don’t want to worry either. But I can’t let that woman anywhere near our lives.

Ridge: I get it. I agree with you. We gotta be protective of the kids, of our lives too. You just gotta be careful. That’s all.

Brooke: Thank you. You always make me feel safe.

Ridge: I have to. You’re my… hot, irresistible wife. Now, I don’t want to go at all. I want to stay here because I don’t want deacon and sheila just hovering around us.

Brooke: Oh, stop. Don’t worry about them. Just go and enjoy yourself, and you’ll be back before you know it.

Ridge: Okay. I will tell the pilot to get me here in plenty of time because I don’t want my wife to be alone on new year’S.

Brooker: Aww. Oh, I’m so lucky to have such a wonderful husband.

Ridge: I’ll be home before you know it.

Brooke: And I’ll be right here waiting for you.

Ridge: Yeah?

Brooke: Yes.

Sheila: Huh. Non-alcoholic is really not too bad. I’ve got taylor willing to give me another chance, what a wonderful woman. And brooke, on the other hand… you know, I hear the holidays can be really difficult… on alcoholics. Alcohol free or the real stuff? Brooke is never gonna know the difference.

[ Upbeat music ]

Deacon: Uh, this isn’t what it looks like. I’m not bartending. I’m just covering for paul.

Brooke: Where is paul?

Deacon: Paul and his wife just had a baby. Yeah. So, they’re at the hospital. I told him I’d cover his shift and restock for him so they could spend some more time together.

Brooke: Okay, well that is very thoughtful of you.

Deacon: Well, I am mr. Thoughtful. So brooke, how was your christmas? Because I got to tell you, mine? Off the charts awesome. Want to know why?

Brooke: Let me guess. Is it because you got to spend it with your daughter?

Deacon: Best christmas ever.

Brooke: Hope said it was really special too.

Deacon: She said you guys were up at the forrester mansion, how’d that go?

Brooke: Oh, it was a good traditional christmas. It’s always fun to see it through beth and douglas’ eyes. You know, christmas is all about the children.

Deacon: Yeah. Did eric whip up a batch of that high octane eggnog?

Brooke: You know it. Actually, that’s why I’m here. Eric poured me some non-alcoholic champagne at christmas, and it was so good, you know, since I’m not drinking. And I took a picture of it on my cell.

Deacon: Oh yeah.

Brooke: Oh, so you know what this is?

Deacon: Yeah, we got a bottle of it right here. Pretty popular with the non-drinking crowd.

Brooke: Well, I’d love to get a bottle actually. We’re having some family over for new year’s eve.

Deacon: This is the last one, it’s spoken for, but we’re getting a new batch in so I can have one delivered to your place for new year’s eve.

Brooke: Okay.

Deacon: Yeah?

Brooke: That would be perfecT.

Deacon: Okay.

Brooke: Thank you.

Deacon: Is there anything else I can do for you? Not that I could ever repay you for everything you’ve done for me. You know, brooke, I gotta tell you, I just feel like this is the first time that I really have a shot at a decent life. And it’s because you’ve had your… your faith you’ve put in me. And… oh no.

Sheila: Am I interrupting?

Brooke: What is she doing here, deacon?

Paris: It felt like something out of one of those wholesome christmas movies. But it was real.

Steffy: That’s what christmas at my grandfather’s is all about. Carol song, eggnog flowing, gifts galore and a real true appreciation of the holidays.

Paris: I know you must be thrilled having your mom back in town for the holidays.

Steffy: I am so thrilled I haven’t seen her in ages. It’s so wonderful to have her back.

Paris: And thomas is excited too, I bet.

Steffy: Yeah, he is. My dad too. He and my mom are close even though they’re divorced.

Paris: Must have been tough when your family split.

Steffy: Yeah, yeah, it was. But, you know, of course, I wanted my parents to stay together. But no matter what, it still feels like a family, which is nice. Like the love is there.

Paris: I’m happy for you, steffy. All of you.

Steffy: Thank you. And plus, I got the best christmas gift, my mom says she is staying in L.A. So thomas, me, dad, we don’t have to say goodbye to her after the holidays. She’s going to be around for all of us.

Paris: So you had no idea your mom was coming back when she did?

Steffy: No idea. Complete surprise. She actually walked into my house.

Paris: Oh wow.

Steffy: It’s so crazy. I mean, like we talk all the time, we text and we video chat, but there’s nothing like having your mom there. You know those mom hugs? It’s nice. It’s really nice to have her back for the holidays.

Paris: That sounds magical. Yeah, it definitely is. Except for one guest.

Sheila: Happy holidays to you, too, brooke. Am I not supposed to spread a little bit of goodwill when I can? It’s the season, right?

Brooke: You never spread goodwill. You’re just interested in spreading chaos and your own brand of crazy.

Sheila: Oh well, well, well. What happened? Did somebody put a lump of coal in your stocking this year because you’re even nastier to me than–

Deacon: Okay, all right, ladies, please–

Brooke: You know, I’d like an explanation, deacon. You promised me that you were no longer associating with sheila.

Deacon: I know.

Brooke: Yet I allowed you into our home and into our family.

Deacon: I am so grateful for that.

Brooke: I even supported you spending time with hope on one condition: That you stay away from sheila. Yet here she is. And here you are. So, tell me what’s going on. Are you still involved with sheila? Super emma just about sleeps in her cape.

Paris: Well, obviously, that wasn’t what you expected.

Steffy: Yeah. Spending christmas eve with sheila? Absolutely not. But I do trust my mom’s reasoning for inviting her.

Paris: You just don’t trust sheila. I totally get that.

Steffy: Yeah. Why would I trust her? She’s like a crazy–

Zende: There you are. I’ve been looking everywhere for you.

Paris: You have?

Zende: I even had charlie put out an apb. There are men searching the building as we speak.

Paris: Stop.

Steffy: Wow, comedian. My cousin, wow.

Zende: Thank you.

Paris: One of his most endearing qualities.

Zende: Along with my ability to pull off incredible surprises. Speaking of which, christmas with you was really amazing. I’m just making sure we’re still on for new year’S. I’m thinking romantic dinner, followed by, well, let’s just say it’s going to be epic.

Steffy: Oh, come on, you got to give it more than that.

Zende: No, not happening, this guy’s lips are sealed.

[ Phone chiming ] Oh. And on that note, I have to meet someone. I will see you ladies a little bit later.

Paris: Bye.

Zende: Bye.

Steffy: I’m just going to say it right now, zende is into you. Wow.

Deacon: Okay, there is nothing romantic going on between me and sheila.

Brooke: Is it true?

Sheila: Well, we’re not sharing a bed right now.

Deacon: Okay, stop. All right? I live in a room in the back here. I work here. I mop up. I mean, come on. I didn’t call her and invite her here. It’s a public establishment. I can’t control what she does.

Sheila: Hello, hello. I’m right here. I can speak for myself.

Deacon: Look, all I’m saying is I don’t want to give brooke the wrong impression. Every single good thing that’s happened to me since I’ve gotten out of prison has been a result of hope and brooke being kind to me, all right? I’m not going to mess that up.

Sheila: And being around me, that’s messing it up?

Deacon: Yes! Because I gave them my word–

Sheila: Okay. Stop, stop, stop. You know, whatever you promised brooke and your daughter, that’s your business. But where I go and who I see, that is none of brooke’s concern. Now you might want to let her dictate your life, but she sure as hell isn’t going to dictate mine. It’s not like I have a lot of friends here in L.A. Anyway.

Brooke: That doesn’t surprise me.

Sheila: Fine, fine. Ol’ miss high and mighty. That’s what you do best, isn’t it? But, deacon… deacon’s my friend.

Brooke: But you can’t be in deacon’s life. He’s doing the best he can to turn himself around, and he’s doing a great job. He doesn’t need a negative influence in his life and that’s exactly what you are!

Sheila: Oh my god! You really believe you know what’s best for everyone, don’t you?

Brooke: Actually, I do in this case, yes. Deacon’s better off having nothing to do with you.

Sheila: Is that how you feel, too? I mean, is brooke speaking for you?

Deacon: I feel like in this situation? Yes, sheila. You know, we can’t be seeing each other.

Sheila: You know, you’ve always looked down your nose at me like you’re better than me, but you’re not brooke. I’m a registered nurse. I put myself through school. I made something of myself. And what did you do? You just slept your way up and down the forrester ladder.

Brooke: Oh, come on, sheila. You know my history. You know I went to college and I became a chemist, and then I created the believe formula, and made millions–

Sheila: Whatever, whatever. I cannot understand why ridge looks at you as his destiny when he already has a family with children and grandchildren with taylor. And one of those grandkids happens to be mine, too? I don’t understand why he would want to spend his life with an alcoholic slut like you, it’s beyond me!

Brooke: Oh, god!

Sheila: Yeah, that’s right. I said it. Stephanie forrester’s words. Once a slut from the valley, always a slut from the valley.

[ Chuckling ]

Brooke: You really are certifiable, aren’t you? You are completely insane.

From the very first touch,

Steffy: Zende is a true romantic, that’s for sure. Like most of the forrester men, it’s kind of like a family tradition.

Paris: What is?

Steffy: The big, romantic gesture? You know how my father proposed to my mom? By having a treasure hunt in the caribbean.

Paris: Really?

Steffy: Yeah, we were kids, and they told us the story over and over again, but I never get tired of hearing it. And thomas loved the part where the ring was the buried treasure. So cute.

Paris: Wow, your parents must have been really in love like you are with finn.

Steffy: And like zende is with you. I haven’t seen him so wrapped up like this with anyone. It just makes me curious, you know, to see what my cousin has in store for you on new year’s eve.

Zende: So, my special request from a few weeks ago, it’s actually ready?

Quinn: Yes, it is, and I’m sorry it took so long. I had to get my own life back in order, but I think you’re going to be pleased. I’m pretty happy with it if I do say so myself, and I think paris will approve. Yeah?

Zende: Approve?

[ Quinn chuckling ] You kidding me? This is just beyond anything I could have imagined, it’s stunning.

Quinn: It’s what I do.

Zende: No one does it better.

[ Quinn chuckling ] Wow. Thank you, quinn.

Quinn: You’re welcome. So, let me ask you a question. Does paris know that you’re about to propose?

Deacon: Enough, stop. Both of you. Sheila, I work here? You’re going to get me fired.

Sheila: Like she even cares. All she ever thinks about is herself.

Brooke: This is exactly why I didn’t want you associating with this woman. She is divisive and destructive.

Sheila: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Wait, no. What I am is human. And I’ve made mistakes. Terrible mistakes that I have paid for. But you won’t even give me an opportunity to prove that to you. No, you don’t have even the simplest hint of forgiveness or understanding in you. Why can’t you just be more like taylor?

Brooke: Taylor?

Sheila: Yes, taylor, you remember. The ex mrs. Ridge forrester who can actually be compassionate and show empathy.

Brooke: What are you even talking about, sheila?

Sheila: I got to go to finn and steffy’s christmas eve, and I spent time with my son and my grandson.

Brooke: Okay, that’s kind of funny because steffy would never allow you in her home.

Sheila: But taylor would. She’s the one that talked finn and steffy into inviting me.

Brooke: Why on earth would taylor do something so dangerous?

Sheila: Because she’s kind and understanding and not condemning me. Why can’t you be like that?

Brooke: Never. Taylor may have opened the door to you, just a crack, but I’m going to make sure that I slam that door, I lock it, and I throw away the key.

Sheila: You know, why don’t you stop with all the bravado? Because there is nothing you can do about it.

Brooke: Yeah? You just watch me. I am gonna make sure you come nowhere near my family, especially steffy, finn, and hayes.

New vicks vapostick. Strong soothing vapors…

Brooke: If you think by manipulating taylor, you’re going to–

Sheila: I’m not manipulating taylor. She’s a world class psychiatrist. I wouldn’t be able to do that. She’d see me coming a mile away.

Brooke: Maybe, maybe not. Maybe she’s been gone so long she forgot how truly diabolical you are.

Sheila: Oh, my god! You just won’t quit. You won’t give me the slightest benefit of the doubt, something taylor is willing to do.

Brooke: I don’t even know why she would do that, sheila. You shot her. You kept her away from her family for years.

Deacon: We have to have a timeout, all right? Please before–

Sheila: Why? Why is that? Are you afraid I’m going to go after her? Is that it? And you’d love it, wouldn’t you? Especially in a public setting like this, because then you’d get everyone to believe your you warped opinion of me.

Brooke: I’m serious, sheila. I’m gonna do everything in my power to keep you away from our family and ridge will agree with me because he doesn’t like you either. And I’m going to make damn sure he knows how crazy you are.

Sheila: Please. Brooke, just don’t do this. Don’t come between my son, my grandson and me. Show a little bit of mercy.

Brooke: If it were anybody else, I might. But you’re dangerous, sheila. A sociopath. And steffy and her family need to be protected from you. I am going to make certain that you are out of all of our lives once and for all.

Deacon: Okay, look. It’s time to go. Let’s go. Come on, come on, come on.

Zende: It’s beautiful. Just like paris. Thank you again, quinn.

Quinn: You’re welcome. But you still didn’t answer my question. Does paris have even the slightest inkling that you are about to propose?

Zende: I’m not sure. Are you wondering if I’m moving into this too fast?

Quinn: That’s absolutely none of my business. But you clearly love her.

Zende: I do. I’m certain she’s the woman I want to spend the rest of my life with. And I have to believe that paris feels the same way about me.

[ Sighing ]

Sheila: Brooke, brooke, brooke! Threatening to come between my son, my grandson and me. And take away my only friend in deacon. Why can’t she just leave me alone? Not like she’s never done anything wrong in her life. But how. How do I stop her? How do I put her in her place?

Deacon: It’s pretty popular with the non-drinking crowd. I’ll have a bottle delivered to your place for new year’s eve.

Sheila: This is how I stop brooke. And it all starts… new year’s eve. . . .

[“We wish you a merry christmas” instrumental]

Eric: Here we go, you two. Here we are. Merry christmas eve.

Paris: As to you. Famous eggnog.

Eric: Oh, you remember? Zende, here.

Zende: Thank you.

Eric: That’s for you. Go ahead.

Paris: How could I forget? Cheers.

Zende: Cheers.

Quinn: So eric told me that rick and R.J. Are skiing?

Ridge: Yeah.

Brooke: I wasn’t thrilled when they told us that news, but you know? At least they’re together. And they’re having fun.

Ridge: Yeah, and you’re going to see them tomorrow when we’re all together. We’re gonna video chat with them, all right? It’s going to be okay.

Brooke: Okay.

Ridge: Excuse me one second, carter’s here.

Quinn: So, before one of us says something that’s going to, you know, set the other one off, I just want–

Brooke: We don’T. Not today.

Quinn: Deal.

[ Baby laughing ]

Douglas: She’s waking! Beth is waking up!

Hope: Oh, my sweet, little angel.

Hope: Well, someone is certainly excited to go over to eric’S.

Douglas: Yeah, we get to open presents, and sing carols, and eat pie!

Liam: Okay, okay, he’s excited. We’ve established this. I’m going to go beth and then we’ll take off. Okay? All right.

Douglas: You’re coming as soon as you can, right, mommy?

Hope: Oh, you bet. But first, I get to visit with my father.

Finn: And you’ve been so good this year that I think santa will come down and–

Thomas: Fill your stocking with tons of presents!

Steffy: This time of year, you are going to grow to cherish hayes. Family coming together and celebrating, it’s absolutely wonderful.

Taylor: My grandson’s first christmas. I’m so happy to be here for this.

Steffy: He love some decorations. Think you’re still going to be saying that when our final guest arrives?

[ Taylor sighing ] I still can’t believe you convinced me to invite sheila.

Douglas: Hi, paris. Merry christmas.

Paris: Merry christmas, douglas. Have you heard?

Douglas: What?

Paris: I’m pretty sure I saw santa’s sleigh flying over brentwood when I walked in.

Douglas: Really?

Paris: Yeah. Have you been a good boy?

Douglas: I think so.

Paris: Aw, don’t worry, man. I know so. Harder than that! Oh yeah.

Carter: Hey, is hope still unloading stuff from the car? I can go help.

Liam: Actually, she’s–

Brooke: You look so great! What are you doing?

Liam: She’s, uh, she’s spending some time with her dad.

Ridge: Well, at least she didn’t invite deacon here, so that’s good.

Deacon: Merry christmas!

Hope: Merry christmas. Hi, what is all this?

Deacon: Just a couple of gifts for beth and douglas. You mind if I put them under the tree?

Hope: Oh, of course. Thank you, dad. But really, you shouldn’t have.

Deacon: Come on, I want these kids to like me, right? Listen, little advice from the old man: Never underestimate the power of bribery. This is for you.

Hope: Dad, thank you. I feel bad. I don’t have anything for you.

Deacon: Oh, you got me the best gift ever. Being here with you for christmas eve.

Finn: Thanks. Did you get him down already?

Steffy: He’s already worn out.

Taylor: What about kelly?

Steffy: Kelly’s drawing one more picture of santa. I think all of her questions are coming out on paper, like how to reindeer fly?

Thomas: She’s not exactly the only one with questions. I have a few of my own. So, sheila is coming? Look, I know that she birthed you and all but could make my mom a little uncomfortable.

Taylor: Honey, I’m the one that suggested it.

Thomas: Why?

Taylor: Because if we ignore sheila and and try to make her go away, it’s just going to feed her obsessive personality. I think it’s best to keep an eye on her and try to diffuse those tendencies as best we can. Plus, it gives me an opportunity to study her in a safe setting. She says she’s reformed. If she is, I’ll know.

[ Knocking ]

Sheila: Hello.

Finn: Hey. Come in, come in. Uh, merry–merry christmas.

Sheila: Um… merry christmas. Finn, steffy, thank you so much for inviting me. And thank you, taylor, for encouraging it. Such tree-mendous views.

[ Moaning ]

Quinn: Ah. Have mistletoe, will travel.

Eric: Everywhere on this property. There’s a mistletoe everywhere, you’re there.

Quinn: Oh, so many kissing opportunities.

Eric: Yeah. The kitchen. There’s some in the kitchen.

Quinn: Kitchen?

Eric: Upstairs.

Quinn: Oh.

Eric: You frown when I say the kitchen.

Quinn: Well…

Eric: You would love it in the kitchen.

Quinn: We’ve exhausted the kitchen.

Eric: I’ll show you.

[ Laughing ]

Paris: Mm. Is anyone concerned to stand next to the fireplace with this?

Carter: I thought it was just me, but it’s a strong batch this year.

Zende: I am definitely only having one. We’re getting up early, after all. Forrester family tradition.

Carter: Ah, pitching in at the homeless shelter on christmas morning.

Liam: We’ll be there. I mean, that’s not the reason we’re going to be up early. Those two are going to be waking us up at the crack of dawn, guarantee you.

Brooke: ‘Twas the night before christmas…

Liam: It’ll be worth it just to see the look on their faces christmas morning.

Brooke: “But I heard him exclaim ere he drove out of sight, ‘happy christmas to all and to all a good night.'”

Douglas: Thanks, grandma.

Brooke: Of course, honey. You’re welcome.

Ridge: Wow.

Brooke: So cute.

Eric: Brooke, glass of bubbly.

Brooke: Oh.

Eric: No, no. It’s non-alcoholic.

Brooke: Oh.

Eric: I got it just for you. They said that this is just as good as champagne without actually being champagne.

Brooke: Okay. Well, in that case. Oh, wow. It’s delicious.

Ridge: May I?

Brooke: Yeah.

Ridge: Thank you. Yeah, you’d never know that this is not real.

Brooke: See?

Quinn: Which I happen to have right here.

Eric: Wow, nice. Here we are. Ridge?

Ridge: Thank you.

Eric: Nice. Everyone, everyone, if I may just for a moment. Look, I know that tomorrow is the main event, christmas day, but christmas eve is pretty special to me too. Just the anticipation of it, actually. Having a house filled with all this happiness and this love and this joy. Here’s to tonight, and to all the memories we’ll make. Cheers.

All: Cheers.

Liam: Cheers. Clink, clink.

Deacon: Well, you better get going. You know, a big shindig over at eric’s and everything.

Hope: Oh, I’ve got time.

Deacon: It’s okay, it’s okay. They’re expecting you. Listen, give everyone my best. Okay? Like everyone who’s receptive to it, at least.

Hope: So, mom, sort of?

Deacon: That’s pretty much about it, right? Just…yeah, give brooke my best. Um… quietly, maybe whisper.

Hope: Will do.

Deacon: Thank you for this.

Hope: I wish I could do more.

Deacon: Next year.

Hope: I hope so.

Deacon: I know so. You’ve given me a second chance of being a father, hope, I don’t take that for granted. I won’t let you down.

Steffy: Okay, I know you’re an invited guest, somehow, my mom convinced me it was the right thing to do, but don’t stretch it out. One drink’s not going to turn into two. You have a few minutes with finn, and a few minutes with hayes, then you to leave.

Sheila: I know the plan. I am going to win you over, though, steffy.

Finn: Here you go.

[ Laughing ]

Sheila: Thank you. So, where’s li? I thought she’d be here.

Finn: She’s with my dad, they’re trying to work things out.

Sheila: Wow, that’s great. That’s wonderful.

Finn: We invited him. But I think right now they just need some time alone.

Sheila: Understandably. What better time of year for for healing and understanding. I really have high hopes for them, finn. I think christmas, this time next year, everything will be back to normal. You’ll be celebrating as just one big, happy family. Family. All these years, just… alone, you know? Just wondering what the holidays could possibly be like. And I’m finally celebrating it with my family. Don’t settle for products that give you a sort-of white smile.

Taylor: Speaking of family, I have a little announcement for mine. I am staying in L.A. It’s time to come home for good.

Thomas: Really, mom?

Taylor: Yes!

Thomas: That’s amazing.

Steffy: You just made my christmas, my year! Oh, mom.

[ Baby cooing ]

Taylor: Come here.

Steffy: Oh, I think–

Sheila: It’s hayes.

Steffy: I’ll go get him.

Thomas: That’s great.

Sheila: I really appreciate what you’ve done here today, taylor. I mean, knowing that you’re willing to give me a chance, and know that I’ve changed, it really means a lot. I was really a different person back then.

Taylor: We both were.

Steffy: All right.

[ Baby cooing ]

Steffy: Would you… would you like to hold him?

Sheila: I’d love to, yeah.

Steffy: All right.

Sheila: Merry christmas, babe.

Eric: From boughs of holly, right, ready?

Zende: Let’s do it.

Deck the halls

with boughs of holly

fa la la la la la la

’tis the season

to be jolly

Liam: So, how was it?

Hope: It was everything I hoped for and more.

Liam: Hm. Good.

Quinn: Hey. Dinner is almost ready.

Brooke: Oh, good. Well, I would like to reiterate eric’s gratitude and just say I am so happy that everybody’s here tonight and we can share this evening. Put all of our differences aside, at least for one night, right? And have a good time together, celebrate christmas as friends and family.

Quinn: And everyone could be at peace.

Carter: To feel joy.

Paris: Love.

Douglas: And to eat pie.

Ridge: That’s my grandson saying what everybody else is thinking. Nice job.

Hope: Do you want some pie?

Nicorette knows, quitting

smoking is freaking hard.

Thomas: So I left L.A., Went east, went through utah, camped, everything, went up–

Sheila: Excuse me.

Thomas: Of course, have you ever been camping?

Taylor: …So much. I am just…I–I– I am so happy to be here with you and thomas. I wish your father– you know what? I’m not going to do that today. Not…no.

Steffy: No, it’s okay, mom.

Thomas: Hey, how’s that… how’s that bird coming along?

Steffy: I think we have five more minutes.

Thomas: Okay, five minutes.

Sheila: That’s–that’s that’s probably my cue to to leave.

Finn: You sure?

Sheila: Yeah, I’ve imposed long enough. I really want to thank you, though, all of you, especially you, taylor, for including me today. This is the memory I am never going to forget. It’s the best christmas I have had in a long, long time.

Douglas: Is it time? Can we open presents?

Ridge: Presents? This is turning out to be a great day.

Eric: Correct. It’s not just these presents, it’s the wonderful gifts that we’re celebrating tonight. Greatest gift of all is the birth of jesus and celebrating his life and his teachings.

Douglas: Like helping others?

Hope: Exactly. So, tomorrow morning, for example, when we go to the shelter.

Eric: And the beauty of that is it doesn’t have to just be tomorrow morning, it can be all year long. The spirit of christmas can be every day. We carry that with us every day of the year.

Ridge: Treat people with kindness, with respect. Hold on to this feeling that we have right now and I don’t know, make it part of who we are always. And that’s how we should deal with people, how we should deal with this planet. If we can do that, then we’re going to be fine. I think. Hey, merry christmas!

All: Merry christmas.

Ridge: Happy holidays, all right.

Carter: Merry christmas.

Ridge: Right, here we go.

Dashing through the snow

in a one horse open sleigh

over the fields we go

laughing all the way

ha, ha, ha

bells on bob-tails ring

making spirits bright

what fun it is

to ride and sing

a sleighing song

tonight, oh!

Jingle bells, jingle bells

jingle all the way

oh what fun it is

to ride in a one-horse

open sleigh, hey!

Jingle bells, jingle bells

jingle all the way

oh, what fun it is to ride

in a one-horse open sleigh

over the fields we go

in a one-horse open sleigh

o’er the hills we go

laughing all the way

ha, ha, ha

bells on bob-tails ring

making spirits bright

what fun it is to ride

and sing a sleighing song

tonight, oh!

Jingle bells, jingle bells

jingle all the way
