Quinn: I’ve been wanting this, to be in your arms again

Carter: It’s all I’ve wanted, to hold you, touch you.

[Shauna gasps]

Shauna: It happened!

Quinn: What happened?

Shauna: Oh, come on, quinn. You’re glowing. It can only mean one thing, eric’s “problem” is no longer a problem. He’s able to– he’s not? Ah, quinn, things are still the same under the sheets?

Quinn: Yes and no.

Shauna: Okay. I’m confused. What’s going on?

Brooke: You paid eric a visit last night too?

Katie: Yeah, he said that you and ridge were there earlier.

Brooke: Yeah, so you drop by on a whim, or…?

Katie: Well, I’m his neighbor. I thought I’d touch base.

Brooke: Even though you see him every day.

Katie: At work.

Brooke: So you just thought you’d catch up with him at home.

Katie: I was probably there for the same reason you and ridge were there.

Brooke: Quinn.

Katie: Mhm, imagine my surprise to find out that his wife wasn’t at home.

Brooke: What? She still wasn’t back yet?

Katie: Yeah, I mean, it was so strange. Eric is there all by himself. While quinn is out, god knows where? I mean, after everything she has put that man through, it’s unconscionable that she wasn’t at home with her husband.

Carter: Eric.

Eric: Carter, thank you for coming.

Carter: Yeah, when the boss summons you.

Eric: I’m sure you can guess why I wanted to talk to you. I know you slept with my wife last night.

Brooke: I agree. It is unconscionable. Quinn is out there enjoying herself, while eric is roaming around that big house alone.

Katie: I just, I don’t get it. I mean, I know that eric is the kindest, most forgiving man I know. But to allow quinn back into his life after everything she’s done to him. And just she can’t even be bothered to stick around after he let her move back in. It just shows how self-centered and selfish she is.

Brooke: I know, I know, you’re preaching to the choir, I mean I’ve never liked that woman from the very beginning.

Katie: Well, neither did I. But what gets me is that he’s not blind. He can see the same things we do and yet he continues to defend her. Like saying she was out last night with his blessing.

Brooke: His blessing, you didn’t believe him, did you?

Katie: The thing is I did. Which is what concerns me even more. It’s like he trusts quinn even when she’s given him every reason not too. There’s got to be something more going on.

Brooke: What do you mean?

Katie: Eric said he hadn’t been the perfect husband, either. That he’s let quinn down. Though I can’t imagine how that could be true.

Brooke: Oh, he’s just saying that to take the heat off quinn. He knows you have issues with her too.

Katie: So, your thinking he’s pointing the finger at him to make up for her shortcomings?

Brooke: I hate seeing him tied to a woman like quinn. She just keeps on hurting him. But he tries to cover, you know, especially with ridge and me. Pretends like everything’s just fine.

Katie: But it’s not fine. That’s why when he was alluding to the fact that he wasn’t able to give quinn everything she wants or needs.

Brooke: That’s ridiculous, I mean eric is the most generous husband in the world.

Katie: Well, I’m not talking about material things. I’m talking about… intimacy.

Eric: I talked to quinn when she came home last night. I asked her point blank if she had sex with you and she confirmed. Awkward I know, but I, I told you and I assure you now, I’m okay with this. It’s not the way I would’ve wanted it, it’s not the way I wanted my life with quinn to be. But, I wanted to be, I wanted to be the man that filled her needs, but that’s just simply not possible.

Shauna: Don’t leave me hanging! Out with it!

Quinn: I don’t really want to talk about it.

Shauna: To your very best friend? How can you not tell me?

Quinn: Alright, okay, fine. I will tell you, but you have to promise me you’re not gonna tell anyone this. I mean it. Nobody can know. You were right this is about me and eric. But also, not just about me and eric.

Shauna: I’m not following.

Quinn: Okay… you know what we’ve been struggling with right? Eric’s E.D. And it doesn’t change how I feel about him. I love my husband as much as I always have. And, and eric loves me more than I ever thought possible.

Shauna: Okay, so?

Quinn: So, you’re not even gonna believe what eric wanted me to do.

Shauna: Tell me.

Quinn: Okay, just first let me just say I am never going to question my husband’s commitment to my happiness ever again.

Shauna: What are you talking about? A new home means new projects.

Brooke: Well, you must have had quite a heart to heart with eric.

Katie: I just hate seeing him so frustrated with himself. When in my opinion, he has absolutely no reason to be.

Brooke: Frustrated how?

Katie: When I see eric, I see a man who is as handsome as ever, still vital, has many wonderful years ahead of him. But for some reason he doesn’t see himself that way and it’s tied to quinn.

Brooke: Because of her affair with a younger man.

Katie: Not just any younger man, carter walton. Mr. Eight-pack. The guy is drop dead gorgeous. I mean I know that quinn and carter aren’t together anymore but if eric and quinn are having problems in the bedroom.

Brooke: We still don’t know that they are.

Katie: I’m just saying that maybe, eric’s worried that there’s some comparison going on, or that he can’t compete sexually. I– if nothing else, I think he’s just afraid of being alone at this stage in his life. He doesn’t like the prospect of growing old all by himself and he’s not himself. And I know quinn is not making this any better. I mean come on, not being at home with her husband when clearly, he’s going through something. How insensitive can you be? Unless I’m missing something. Unless we’re all missing something.

Eric: I want you to understand something carter. This is not easy for me. I’ve assured you that I’m okay with it but it’s not easy for me. Having my wife with another man. If I had entertained this thought a year ago, six months ago, I, I… I never would’ve imagined that. Let alone encouraged it. I love quinn. I know you do too. I know that you love a lot of the same things about her that I do. Her energy, her spontaneity, her humor, her sensuality, her exquisite beauty. But I want to make one thing clear. In spite of how you feel about her and everything she brings to your life, the feelings that you have for her. You must never under any condition, consider quinn yours.

Shauna: Are you going to tell me or keep talking in riddles? I can see you had sex and from the look of your face it was amazing. But this doesn’t make any sense. So, spit it out. I mean eric he isn’t able to–

Quinn: Eric still isn’t able to be my husband in that way.

Shauna: Would you just spit it out.

Quinn: You know, I wouldn’t even believe it if i wasn’t living this right now. My husband loves me so much, he doesn’t want me to give up that part of my life.

Shauna: Quinn, you can’t possibly mean that–

Quinn: Eric asked me to sleep with carter. Yeah, right. I was as shocked as you are right now when he first told me. And I also said “no way.”

Shauna: Huh. But now you’re having sex. You and carter

Quinn: Yeah. Last night. And it was incredible! I’ve got moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.

Brooke: I don’t think we’re missing anything. I think it’s like what you said: Eric needs his wife. And quinn is just not there to notice. I mean, she’s off doing whatever it is that she does when she’s not being the mistress of the manor.

Katie: But that’s not really anything new. What’s different is for eric to encourage it, for him to condone it. He’s clearly lonely. Surely quinn realizes that.

Brooke: Oh god, no. I don’t even think she cares. I mean, it’s all about quinn. What quinn wants, what quinn needs.

Katie: And what she needed was carter.

Brooke: Really can’t believe that he got stuck in her web. And I don’t think he’s the last man that will.

Katie: You think that quinn would betray eric again?

Brooke: I don’t know. I can’t really be objective about it. We have too much history. And none of it good. But I swear if she does something to hurt eric again.

Katie: Oh, no. I feel the same way. If she ever does anything like that and I find out about it. No way. Hopefully it won’t come to that. Hopefully, eric will realize that quinn is not the woman that he needs. He deserves so much better than her.

Eric: Quinn is mrs. Eric forrester. And she will continue to be in every way. Except one. Have I made myself clear? Oh, and one other thing. Very important thing. No one is to know about this arrangement. Especially ridge.

Carter: Of course.

Shauna: Eric actually told you to be with carter?

Quinn: Yes.

Shauna: Oh my god, oh my god.

Quinn: Eric is my husband and what he was asking me to do– I’m so conflicted.

Shauna: Well of course you are, you love him. And for him to even suggest something like that.

Quinn: Eric says that he loves me so much, that he is willing to sacrifice so that I could be fulfilled as a woman. Shauna, the first, the first night he set up for me and carter, we were like, “no way.” I mean no way; we respect eric too much. And then he set up another encounter, last night. He actually sent me to carter’s loft.

Shauna: And you two actually–

Quinn: Well yes, of course we did. I mean I–I love carter. We can’t even keep our hands off each other when we don’t have permission

Shauna: I can’t– I can’t believe this; did you spend the night?

Quinn: No. No, I went home, to my husband.

Shauna: Did you see eric?

Quinn: Yeah, he was awake when I got into bed.

Shauna: Wow, wow, well that must’ve been awkward. Did you get the cold shoulder?

Quinn: No. Nope, he was happy for me.

Shauna: Wait quinn, wait a minute. You guys actually talked about what happened

Quinn: Mm-hm, it was awkward. He wanted to know. He wanted to know if carter and I had sex. He could tell by the look on my face that we had. And then he said that’s what he wanted, and we just laid there in each others’ arms.

Shauna: I… I honestly don’t know what to say. I mean I haven’t been with a man for a while. And you, you’re living a fantasy. Everyone remembers the moment they heard,

Shauna: I’m absolutely mind blown.

Quinn: Tell me about it. I can’t even concentrate. I love my husband and I don’t want to hurt him.

Shauna: And then there’s carter.

Quinn: I love carter too and when we’re together we can’t keep our hands off each other.

Shauna: Oh well, well I guess I’ll be living vicariously through you. Quinn, I know you’ve always been a bit unconventional, but this.

Quinn: I know.

Brooke: I’m just so glad that you live next door to eric, and you can keep an eye on him.

Katie: Oh, I intend to. Like I said brooke I just sense that there’s so much more going on inside of eric than what he’s saying to me or to anyone.

Carter: I didn’t realize you were in here. I can go.

Quinn: No, don’T. Lock it. Um… I can’t stop thinking about last night.

Carter: Me neither.

Quinn: I can’T… I can’t comprehend how eric wants this for me.

Carter: Yeah, I know.

Quinn: I love my husband… but, I love you too.

[ Soft instrumental ]

Carter: Are we sure?

Quinn: I’m not sure about any of this.

Eric: My sex life is over. Yours doesn’t have to be.

[ Knocking on door ]

Katie: Hey.

Eric: Katie. Hi. Come in.

Katie: Oh, thanks. Sorry to pop over. I know it’s late. I was just looking for ridge and brooke. She said that they were gonna stop by.

Eric: Uh, they were here. You just missed ’em.

Katie: Okay. Well um, I’ll text her. Sorry, it’s late. I don’t want to interrupt you and quinn.

Eric: No, no. My wife’s not here. Quinn’s out for the evening.

Finn: Both kids– sound asleep.

[ Steffy sighing ]

Steffy: Thank god. I don’t want to jinx us, but I think hayes might be finally sleeping through the night? Hi…

Finn: Looks that way.

Steffy: You know what that means.

Finn: Mm-hm.

Steffy: We haven’t had many opportunities but dr. Finnegan, I think it’s gonna be your lucky night.

[ Finn sighing ] Unless you’re too exhausted from saving lives and singing lullabies.

Finn: I think I can muster up some energy.

Finn: I’m liking this bedside manner. You might’ve missed your calling.

Steffy: Oh, no, no, no, no, no. There’s only room for one doctor in this house and that is you. I mean, you’re so kind and compassionate. And you’re such a patient father.

Finn: Most of the time.

Steffy: No seriously, you’re an amazing dad. You’ve taken to it beautifully.

Finn: I’m glad I’m getting high marks.

[ Steffy laughing ]

Steffy: I couldn’t ask for more from you. You do so much to help everyone. You really go out of your way. I just think it’s time that… I do something special for you.

Katie: I probably shouldn’t say this but I don’t get how you allowed quinn to come back into this house, into your life.

Eric: She’s my wife, katie.

Katie: Yeah, well–

Eric: It works for us. I have every confidence that we’re going to find wonderful ways to improve our marriage in the future.

Katie: Okay, I get it, that you and quinn are the only two people who know what goes on behind closed doors. But you’re… you’re so kind and you’re so forgiving and maybe too forgiving. And, I don’t want to see that taken advantage of. I want you to be happy.

Eric: I am.

Katie: Are you? ‘Cause here you are, you’re– you’re at home, all by yourself while quinn is out for the night. I mean, where the hell is she?

Quinn: Maybe we should stop. I still feel guilty. I– it doesn’t matter that eric sent us over here with a note of permission.

Carter: Okay. Okay, we can stop… but I don’t want to.

[ Sighing ]

Quinn: Oh god… here’s a good halloween trick.

Finn: You’re in a mood tonight.

Steffy: I can be sweet when I want to be.

Finn: Mm, well, I like your soft side. I like every side of you.

Steffy: Good. Because you’re stuck with me.

Finn: Promise?

Steffy: Yeah, I’d be a fool to let you go.

Finn: And if we can make it through these last few months relatively unscathed…

Steffy: We’re in a better place because of it. I know how devoted you are to me and our kids. You would do anything for us. I get that. You cut ties with your birth mother and I know that was really hard for you.

Finn: It was necessary. Our life is too precious to me, steffy. I’m not gonna let sheila or anyone cause problems for us.

Steffy: You’re so incredible, you really are. I couldn’t imagine doing this without you. Creating this little world.

Finn: I think we both got it pretty well.

Steffy: Mm-hm. As long as we have more nights like this…

Finn: Mm, you did promise something… extra special.

Steffy: Extra special. Buckle up. It’s just getting started.

Katie: How is quinn not home? I mean, given everything she’s done to you, I would think that she would be savoring every moment

Eric: We spend plenty of time together katie, we do.

Katie: Well, I would think that she’s on a girls’ night out but she doesn’t have any friends. I mean, she’s pretty much alienated everyone around her. You included–

Eric: Katie.

Katie: Or so I thought.

Eric: I haven’t been the perfect husband. I know that’s hard for a lot of people to understand. But it’s true. I’ve let quinn down. You and brooke think that I’m somebody that’s beyond reproach but…

Katie: You are. I mean, to us you’re about as perfect as any man could be.

Yeah, well, that’s simply not the truth. You give me way too much credit.

Katie: You and I have known each other for a long time, haven’t we? And I have never seen you like this. ]

Katie: It just worries me that she’s– she’s finally broken you down. And she makes you feel like you’re not good enough for her–

Eric: No, she is– she doesn’t make me feel that way. No.

Katie: Well, I don’t think she knows how lucky she is. I mean, she married well above herself.

Eric: Well, marriages are complicated, katie. Oh wait a minute, you know that as well as anybody.

Katie: Okay, fine. That’s true. But you’ve giving her everything she wants and needs.

Eric: No, not everything.

Katie: What are you talking about? She has everything. She has you by her side, she has a beautiful house, she has a thriving career at forrester.

Eric: Yeah, well that doesn’t mean there isn’t something missing.

Katie: Okay. I– I understand if you don’t want to talk about this, if it makes you feel uncomfortable.

Eric: Okay. When you say that there’s “something missing,” and you’re not giving her everything that she needs… are you– are you talking sexually?

[ Quinn moaning ]

Quinn: I can’t lie. I’ve been wanting this, to be in your arms again.

Carter: It’s all I’ve wanted. To hold you, touch you.

[ Quinn moaning ]

[ Quinn sighing ]

Quinn: This is torture.

Carter: I know.

Quinn: But I love you.

[ Quinn sighing ]

Life…

Katie: Like I said… we don’t have to get into this. I just– I just want you to know that–

Eric: That you care,

Katie: Yeah.

Eric: It’s coming from a good place.

Katie: It is. I know how amazing you are and I know I keep saying that–

Eric: No, you can– keep saying that. It’s fine. I can– I can take it.

Katie: I just kind feel like I’ve hit you with a lot of quinn negativity today.

Eric: It kind of runs in your family, doesn’t it?

Katie: Mm. Well, the admiration for you runs deep in the logan family. Between brooke and donna and me, well, we’re big fans.

Eric: I’m a big fan of the logan girls, too.

Katie: I just think it’s important for you to know how beloved you are. You are.

Katie: Quinn did this messed up thing by having an affair with carter, someone who’s younger, so it’s only natural for you to feel like–

Eric: You know what I feel like? I feel frustrated with myself, with my– with my life, where it is right now. I’m living in this house by myself!

Katie: Well, maybe that’s it. Maybe that’s it. You’re compromising because you’re afraid of being alone. And that’S…normal. We all feel like that sometimes, believe me! You are eric forrester. You don’t have to compromise. Look at everything you’ve done. You’ve created this like, huge, cultural entity: Forrester creations. You’ve raised six accomplished children. You’ve contributed so much to the world and to everyone around you. You’re a freaking legend.

[ Laughing ] Your art, talent… as a designer, as a philanthropist. Speaker of four languages. Mentor to young fashion students. You’re an icon and the best thing is that your best years are still in front of you so you don’t have to settle. Not professionally, not personally, so you don’t have to do it now and you don’t have to do it for quinn. Please eric, I– I hate seeing you like this. Please tell me what’s going on.

Eric: It’s late. Thanks for listening. You’re a good friend.

Katie: Okay. I’m right next door if you need anything.

Eric: Okay.

Finn: Wow. When you said something special, you weren’t kidding. Scoot over.

Steffy: I promised you a surprise, didn’t I?

Finn: Yes. And you did not disappoint.

Steffy: I just want to… take the time to show you how much I adore you and how sexy you are ’cause let’s be honest. I needed this as much as you do.

Finn: You look as… oh. I– I forgot how to talk.

[ Steffy laughing ]

Steffy: Good, ’cause we’re not gonna do much talking.

[ Romantic music ]

[ Dramatic music ]

Eric: How was your night?

Quinn: I didn’t know you were awake.

Eric: Did you gave him my note?

Quinn: Yes.

Eric: What happened?

Quinn: Eric, I can’T.

Eric: Did you make love?

Quinn: Yeah.

Eric: Good.

Quinn: Eric, I don’t– I don’t want to talk about this. I don’t want to hurt you.

Eric: I wish it was me. I so wish it was me. I love you so much.

Quinn: I know how much you love me.

Eric: You’re my wife. I want to give you everything in this life. I want you to be completely fulfilled.

Quinn: I understand but you can never doubt how much I love you.

[ Dramatic music ]

Carter: Quinn.

Quinn: I don’t know if it’s safe for me to come in.

Carter: It’s safe.

Quinn: Well, you’re… probably wondering why I’m here. Eric sent me.

Finn: Everyone’s down in there. Steffy fell asleep with hayes.

Paris: Aw, that’s so sweet. Well, I don’t blame her. She does so much.

Finn: Yeah. And until recently, she had something else to deal with. Something not so pleasant.

Paris: You mean sheila.

Finn: Yeah. And every time I look at my son I– I hear steffy’s voice. The fear just underneath the surface, desperation. You know steffy. She’s a warrior. She’s not afraid of anything. Not until sheila got into the picture. I mean, for her to be so adamant about keeping sheila away from hayes, it’s–

Paris: Can I… do you mind if I ask you a question?

Finn: No, not at all?

Paris: How do you really feel about all of this?

Finn: I try not to think about how I feel.

Paris: Well, I don’t think that’s a good idea.

Finn: I’m too conflicted. Too removed. Yes, sheila is my birth mother but I don’t know her. Steffy and the forrester’s do and they all say the same thing. That she’s psychotic and dangerous. I mean, she is a threat to the family and to my newborn son. She gets fixated on things and may even try to take hayes.

Paris: Well, people change. Maybe she’s not the same person that she was before.

Finn: No one believes that.

Paris: Do you?

Finn: I believe people can change. Whether or not sheila has, I couldn’t tell you. Her wishes and her instincts.

Paris: Wow. I can only imagine how difficult this must be for you.

[ Door knocking ]

Eric: Already?

Ridge: Hey, it’s us.

Eric: Yeah, so I see. Here to take another crack at your old man?

Brooke: Will it help?

Ridge: No, you didn’t sign these before you left.

Brooke: We wanted

Eric: Well, as you can see, I’m fine.

Ridge: As we can see, you’re drinking alone. Where’s quinn?

Carter: Eric sent you?

Quinn: Yeah, he, uh,

Qnnui: Yeah, he, uh, he asked me to deliver this. Says it’s sensitive material and you need to have it right away.

Carter: Don’t you think that’s odd?

Quinn: You know what, carter, I don’t even know what to think anymore. Take it. (Lucky) uh-oh the magic’s disappearing!

Paris: Not to put you on the spot, but doesn’t a little part of you want to know sheila?

Finn: I mean, under different circumstances, it’s only natural, right?

Paris: That’s what I’ve been saying. It’s only natural. That desire deserves to be given consideration.

Finn: Did you not hear the “under different circumstances”? Sheila has done terrible things to the forrester’S. Criminal things. She shot steffy’s mother. Of course, steffy’s gonna hate her.

Paris: Yeah, well, you can know that and still feel a sense of loss. It sucks that you can’t share that with steffy because of their history. I know it must be hard for you.

Finn: Well, thankfully, I’ve got you. You’re a good friend, paris.

Paris: Well, I’ll always be here for you, finn. You and steffy. So, steffy really thinks sheila faked the collapse?

Finn: She doesn’t think it. She’s convinced. She has been from the start.

Paris: You’re a doctor. Wouldn’t you know if sheila was faking?

Finn: Honestly, I don’t know. My objectivity might be compromised. But it really doesn’t matter. Steffy doesn’t want sheila around and I stand by my wife.

Paris: Speaks to the kind of partner you are. Steffy insisting that there’s no middle ground. That you should shut sheila all the way out, period? I’m just wondering if cutting ties with you birth mother forever is really how you wanna handle this.

Eric: I appreciate your concern, but why would my having a martini by myself here be a cause for alarm?

Brooke: Have to admit, it is kind of strange.

Eric: Really? Why?

Brooke: Quinn wanted nothing more but for you to forgive her for what she did with carter and take her back. And now that you have, you’re here drinking alone?

Ridge: Where’s your doting wife?

Eric: What if I told you she was upstairs reading a book?

Ridge: Is she?

Eric: No, she’s not. She’s out. She’s out enjoying herself.

Brooke: Enjoying herself? She can’t do that with you?

Eric: Well, I can’t win with the two of you, can I? You know, if she were here having a drink with me, you wouldn’t approve of that either.

Brooke: Well, at least we would know that she wasn’t with carter again.

Eric: Why would you say that?

Brooke: Eric, I don’t trust her. And neither should you.

Eric: Yeah, well I do. And look, she’s younger than I am, in case you haven’t noticed that.

Ridge: When did that become relevant?

Eric: Look, we’re in different stages of our life, all right? I don’t wanna hold her back.

Quinn: What does it say? Unless, of course, it’s for your eyes only.

Carter: “Tonight is yours”.

Quinn: I love my husband. What makes this impossible is I love you too.

Think wearing less makeup

means no need for a wipe?

Finn: I won’t lie. It has been surreal. I’ve wondered about my birth mother since I found out I was adopted. What did she look like? What was her personality, which is funny how things turn out because I never would have imagined this.

Paris: Yeah, how could you? Your birth mother turns out to be your wife’s worst nightmare. The woman who terrorized the family you married into.

Finn: The forrester’s all agreed, the best way to safeguard hayes and the family is to keep him away from sheila.

Paris: Do you agree?

Finn: I have to. I can’t take chances with my son’s welfare. On my wedding day, all of a sudden, there she was and I was amazed. I kept thinking, this can’t be happening.

Paris: I bet you were so happy.

Finn: Yeah, I was, but not for long. Talk about crashing back down to earth in a hurry. The forrester’s took one look and all hell broke loose. Nothing’s really been the same since.

Paris: Well, I’m sorry you’re dealing with such a challenging thing right now. But I really do admire you for standing with steffy. You’re an incredible man.

Brooke: I don’t understand, eric. How are you holding quinn back? She knew what she was getting into when she chose to marry an older man.

Ridge: Look, I’m not sure if it came out the way you wanted it to come out.

Brooke: That’s not what I meant. You’re not old, eric. In fact, you’re handsome and sexy.

Eric: There was a time I felt that way.

Ridge: See? That. What is that? You never used to do this, this self-deprecating thing. You’re one of the most confident guys I know.

Brooke: It’s true, what is that? Did quinn take away your confidence? See, this is what I’m talking about. She’s not good for you, eric. She is careless with your feelings.

Eric: No, quite the opposite. Quite the opposite. She’s been more attentive to my feelings lately than she ever has been before.

Brooke: Maybe for now, because you forgave her for her betrayal with carter. But just give her time and she may do something that disappoints you again. All I’m saying, eric, is that you deserve better.

Ridge: Dad, we’re concerned about you.

Eric: Well, you can stop that. Quinn’s not the problem. I am.

Carter: This is crazy. And I’ve made no secret about my feelings and I love you too, but this– this thing between us. It’s crazy.

Quinn: This is insane.

Carter: It’s insane. But it’s undeniable. I respected your decision to go back to your husband.

Quinn: I know.

Carter: And I want you to be happy, I really do. I do, but I can’t deny it, quinn. This connection that we have, this… this thing, quinn. I miss it and I miss you. I miss making love to you, I miss being with you and we kept our distance because we didn’t want to disrespect eric, but he’s pushing it, he’s pushing us. And it wouldn’t be disrespectful now. Would it?

[ Romantic percussive music ]

If you have postmenopausal

osteoporosis

Paris: What?

Finn: Just grateful for you. Happy you came into my life.

Paris: Goes both ways.

Finn: Maybe. But I need you more.

Paris: You need me?

Finn: You understand me. Your empathy, it means so much to me during this strange time. Having a safe place to put the feelings I can’t burden steffy with.

Paris: Well you know you can talk to me about anything.

Finn: I do. And I appreciate that more than I can say. There is something so special about you, paris.

Finn: Paris? We’re in the clear. Steffy has hayes under control.

Paris: What?

Finn: No, it’s just– thanks for listening. For being there.

Paris: My pleasure. Any time.

Finn: You’re very special, you know that?

[ Dramatic music ]

Brooke: You’re the problem, not quinn? How could that be true?

Eric: Well it is, believe me.

Brooke: Eric, you keep defending her.

Eric: Somebody has to defend her.

Ridge: I know you’re joking, but you know what, none of this is funny. It’s not funny. We’re trying to protect you.

Brooke: She has proven that she can’t be trusted over and over again. She does something that’s unforgivable and you forgive her. You take her back, things are fine for a while, but then she does something else. I mean, my god, she slept with carter.

Eric: Yes, I’m well aware. I haven’t forgotten that. Look, this conversation is boring me–

Brooke: Eric, eric, we don’t mean to be tiresome. We just love you.

Eric: I know.

Brooke: You deserve to have a woman who gets everything she needs right here with you in your home. And I just don’t think that’s quinn. I mean, for all we know, she’s with somebody else as we speak. Look, I know you were devastated about quinn and carter, I just don’t want to see you hurt like that ever again.

Ridge: Goodnight.

Eric: I’m good.

[ Dramatic music ]

Carter: Eric can’t honestly want you to be with me.

Quinn: He’s not…thinking about it that, carter. He’s thinking about what he thinks I need. And if he thinks this is the only way to give me a life full of passion and desire, then… then he’s willing to do it.

Carter: But are we?

Ridge: Tell me. Tell me what’s going on with you.

Eric: This is a place of business right here. And that’s my personal life. I think it’s been discussed quite enough in this office.

Ridge: Your personal life? What else would it be, dad? We’re family, I’m your son. I’m concerned about you. Yes, it’s personal, of course it is. So, I’m asking you on a personal level. This reunion with quinn… wasn’t all candlelight and fireworks, was it?

Steffy: Oh! What.

Finn: Hm.

Steffy: What was that for?

Finn: It’s the first time we’ve been alone all day.

Steffy: Yeah. You trying to make me forget about your uh… dad joke competition with liam? Wow.

Finn: Nah, that was fun.

Steffy: Yeah, today was fun.

Finn: It was. I love seeing the kids together.

Steffy: I know. Kelly was so proud, showing off her little brother to– to douglas and beth. So cute.

Finn: Well, I think we all have a lot to be proud of today.

Steffy: Mm-hm. This is what hope and I wanted for so long. Just to be a big, blended family. And it didn’t seem possible. But then I met you. What hope said today, about me never been happier… it’s true, I am. It’s because of you.

Finn: The kids are napping. Amelia’s gone. I’m going to take you to the bedroom.

Steffy: I like the sound of that. Steffy: Oh my gosh, we have company. We have com-pa-ny!

Paris: Sorry. I’m sorry.

[ Laughing ]

Steffy: Um…

[ Laughing ]

Eric: You know, I really wish you wouldn’t be so quick to jump on quinn.

Ridge: It’s not what I’m doing. You must know by now I don’t care what happens to quinn. I care what happens to you. And I’m only telling you what I’m seeing. What I’m seeing doesn’t make sense. You wanted her out of your life for very good reason. And now you want her back. And– and no one knows why. No one can talk to you about it. So, something is going on. Am I wrong?

[ Door opening ]

Brooke: Oh, good, you’re both here. These samples just came in and I–uh… you’re in the middle of something.

Ridge: Yeah. I’m trying to convince this guy that I’m concerned about him.

Brooke: We both are, eric.

Eric: Well, I don’t want to be uh–I don’t want to seem ungrateful or unkind, but I would–

Ridge: Here it goes. No, I know what you’re going to say. “You cannot blame quinn for anything, ever.”

Brooke: It’s hard not to. You say that you want a life with her. You say you want her back, and that you’re happy, but you don’t seem happy, eric. In fact, you seem more troubled since you and quinn have reconciled. Why is that?

Quinn: Obviously eric still thinks there’s a connection between us.

Carter: He’s not wrong. But…he doesn’t understand. Quinn, if we do this, if we give into our feelings… it can get very complicated.

[ Sighing ]

[ Door knocking ]

Wyatt: Mom, are you–

Quinn: Hey, sweetheart.

[ Clearing throat ]

Wyatt: Uh…am i interrupting something here?

Carter: Not at all.

Wyatt: Oh, really? So, I should just ignore the fact that you guys literally jumped away from each other?

Frank is a fan of fast.

He’s a fast talker.

Paris: I should have backed up the second I saw you guys. But I’m just no good at sneaking around.

Finn: No, that’s– that’s a good thing. I–I like that in a house guest.

Steffy: Yeah, me, too.

Paris: You guys don’t get to spend much time together, and here I am, interrupting. I’ll go up to my room. I don’t mean to make things awkward, um, but after everything you’ve been through, it’s really great to see you guys like this.

Steffy: Yeah, I agree.

Paris: So that means everything with sheila worked out? You guys don’t have to worry about her anymore?

Ridge: So, everything is good, right? There are no problems? But then answer this, why are you acting this way?

Eric: I’ve asked you time and time again to stop harping on this, to leave it alone. But you won’T. That’s why I’m acting like this. It’s annoying!

Ridge: Ah.

Brooke: Why would you want us to let it go, eric? All we’re doing is expressing our concern.

[ Sighing ]

Brooke: I mean obviously something is wrong. We can see it. Even last night when I talked to you on the phone, I could hear it in your voice.

Ridge: We can see what’s going on, why can’t you? Why can’t you see that we’re here because we love you and we want to support you?

Eric: Quinn and I have been more open to one another recently than we ever have been in our lives together. We’ve been very, very honest with one another.

Ridge: And that’s good. Honesty’s good. You know what else is good? Trust. Companionship.

Brooke: And warmth. And affection.

Ridge: You were talking earlier about challenges that families go through. We’ve had more than most. And when we found our way back to each other, it was magical. It was amazing, we didn’t leave the house for days. We didn’t leave the bedroom and there was things happen that’s– that’S…not important. But I want that for you, dad. And I gotta tell you, this… little reunion with quinn doesn’t seem as joyous to me.

Brooke: You probably wanted things to go back the way they were. But maybe that’s just not possible. And there’s no shame in that. Eric, you’re a man who values honesty. You value integrity. And maybe you just don’t feel that same way now after quinn betrayed you. You know, maybe there’s no love, there’s no passion. It’s gone.

Wyatt: You know, this isn’t the first time I’ve walked in on the two of you.

Quinn: At the office? Where we both work.

Wyatt: It didn’t look like you were exactly crunching numbers here, mom–

Carter: Wyatt, there is nothing going on. If you have to know, we were talking about eric. Your mom’s one hundred percent focused on him, doing whatever it takes to make their marriage last.

Wyatt: Okay, good. I mean you can understand why there’s questions, right? Considering everything that–

Quinn: The only question I’m asking myself is how I can be the best wife to my husband. Look, eric has been very generous with me. He’s willing to give me whatever it takes to make me feel appreciated and– and desired. And– and now I have to make sure that I’m– I’m giving eric everything he needs from me.

If you have postmenopausal

osteoporosis

Paris: Um, um–I– I brought up a bad subject.

Steffy: No, no, no, no, it’s–it’s alright. Finn made it clear to sheila that she’s no longer welcome& in his life or hayes’.

Paris: Well, did she accept that? Did she leave?

Finn: We don’t know where she is.

Steffy: We have to keep an eye out. You too, paris. If you hear or see anything, we need to know immediately.

Paris: Absolutely. Uh… I’m–I’m sorry I even brought it up. I know it’s a heavy subject.

Steffy: It’s really important that sheila stays out of our lives. For good this time.

Eric: It’s pretty easy to judge from the outside looking in.

Brooke: Eric, we’re not judging you!

Eric: Yes, you are, brooke. Yes, you are!

Brooke: Please, you don’t have to hide anything from us. Admitting that you made a mistake can be hard. And it can feel like a failure. But it’s not. It’s strong and it’s courageous. But that’s who you are, eric. You’re always trying to do the right thing and putting other people first. But it’s not worth it. It’s not worth sacrificing your own well-being just to honor a commitment.

Eric: This is my marriage. What goes on in my marriage is my business. It’s not yours. Quinn and I know what we’re doing. We’re going to take care of this ourselves. I want this to be the end of it. Excuse me.

[ Door opening and closing ]

Wyatt: Look, I don’t mean to make you defensive.

Carter: You’re concerned about your mom.

Wyatt: I just I know how much my mother loves eric and how great they are together.

Quinn: Okay, I’ve made so many mistakes with eric and I don’t want to make another one, okay? Eric and I are–are… are trying to create a marriage that works for both of us.

Wyatt: Good. I just don’t want you to take that for granted.

Quinn: Believe me, I don’T.

Wyatt: Okay. I’m just saying that it was miraculous… the way he took you back after everything you did to him, giving you another chance. Like, that– that is a very special kind of love.

Quinn: I know, wyatt.

Carter: It’s not if you know eric. The way he reacts to challenges. His first thought is always everyone else. He wants things to be better.

Quinn: Eric is a remarkable man. A man who thinks that a life with me is… worth every sacrifice. He’s willing to do… whatever he thinks I need to feel happy and fulfilled.

Wyatt: And you’re going to give that back to him though, right? I’m just saying. I don’t want you to miss out on this, mom. Whatever eric needs, whatever he asks you to do– just do it. (Susan n) leonard was afraid

Eric: Having a little trouble with this one?

Quinn: Ah, just uh… just a bit distracted. I’ve a lot on my mind.

Eric: I understand.

Quinn: I don’t really think you do. You think you know what I want. But you don’T.

Eric: Remember the day we got married?

[ Scoffing ]

Quinn: How can I forget?

Eric: It was just you and me. You and me and the minister.

Quinn: Yeah, yeah. ‘Cause your family protested and they refused to show up.

Eric: Yeah. They were sure I would call it off. They had no idea how much… I loved you. They had no idea how far I would go to give you what you want. I promised that I would– that I would give you happiness and joy and– and fulfilment in your life. I could still do that. Here.

Quinn: What’s this?

Eric: Sensitive material. It’s–it’s for carter.

Quinn: Carter isn’t here, he went home for the day.

Eric: I know. Take it to him. I’ll see you at home.

[ Sighing ]

Ridge: Dad knows what he wants.

Brooke: Yeah. Maybe I shouldn’t have said anything. I made him feel like he had to defend quinn.

Ridge: I’m sure he felt that way from the moment he met her.

Brooke: I just don’t get it. Eric is so… he’s amazing. He’s generous and thoughtful and giving and…quinn is just the opposite.

Ridge: You’re right, he is thoughtful. So, let’s hope he thought this through.

Quinn: Is that your way of telling me not to worry?

Ridge: Only if you can tell me the same thing.

Brooke: Well, your father is an amazing man. His ability to love is… extraordinary. He’s fearless and boundless. Quinn doesn’t deserve him. No man has ever given her what eric has.

Eric: Look, I told you. My sex life is over. Yours doesn’t have to be.

[ Sighing ]

Carter: Okay.

Quinn: I love you.

Carter: I love you, too.

[ Dramatic music ]

Eric: I know how she feels about me. And I know how she feels about you. I think that we should encourage that. The night is yours if you want. Good morning. We should talk about last night.

Quinn: I would rather talk about you. Do you have any appointments with your doctors coming up?

Eric: Quinn, darling, I’ve been seeing doctors for quite some time now and it hasn’t helped.

Quinn: You can’t give up, eric.

Eric: I’m being realistic. And I think you should be too, about your needs.

Ridge: I know that look. You’re thinking about her, aren’t you?

Carter: Her?

Ridge: Zoe. She’s killing it over there in paris. You saw this, right?

Carter: Yeah. I did see it and I’m happy for her. I wish zoe all the best.

Ridge: Any regrets?

Carter: Yeah. Yeah, I have regrets. About a lot of things.

Steffy: I’m so glad we’re finally doing this.

Finn: A beach day with the whole gang? What could be better?

Liam: Yeah, I’m not so sure amelia would sign off on that. I think she’s got her hands full with douglas, beth and kelly. Although, that is a sweet sandcastle.

Finn: Castles. You hear that, little man? You ready to go join the fun?

Steffy: You think he needs a diaper change first?

Liam: Who are we talking about here, hayes or finn?

Hope: Oh my gosh.

Finn: And they say I tell the lame jokes.

Steffy: Well, you both do.

[ Laughing ]

Steffy: Let’s hope that doesn’t rub off on you because we only need one comedian in the house.

Liam: Just one. Just one.

Hope: He’s so cute. Liam and I, we’re so happy for your family. Right little guy? Yeah.

Finn: Nothing better than being a new dad.

Steffy: Unless it’s being a new mom.

Hope: Mmm. Yeah. I think I could have 20 more.

Liam: What? What? A little ambitious, don’t you think?

Finn: Whoa, okay, yes. I think you’re mom is right.

Steffy: Told you.

Finn: Let’s get you cleaned up, you little stinker. Let’s make this quick.

[ Laughing ]

Hope: It really is wonderful seeing you so happy and at peace.

Ridge: Many regrets. Wanna explain that?

Carter: What’s to explain, ridge? We all have regrets, right? About something.

Ridge: Or someone?

Carter: Is there a reason you needed to see me?

Ridge: Yeah, um, wanted to see if you had talked to dad, see if he has a proposition for you. What–what are you doing? What is this? What’s going on with you?

Quinn: Can I get you something for breakfast? Would you like pancakes or french toast? What’s your pleasure?

Eric: I’m looking at her. Except I can’t be the husband that she deserves.

Quinn: Stop saying that, okay? You’re everything I need.

Eric: Not everything. I can’t be your lover.

Quinn: Eric, that will change.

Eric: No, we both know it won’T. All right, look, I’ll say it one more time. And then I’ll drop it. Your sex life does not have to be over just because mine is. I’m going into the office. I’ll see you there later. I love you, quinn.

Quinn: I love you, too. In this ad pay attention to the actor’s gums.

Hope: Sunscreen. Is there anything else that we are missing?

Finn: I can’t believe it. Hayes, he passed out right on the changing table. He’s out cold.

Hope: That’s fine. We can chill here for a bit.

Liam: Works for me. I’m out of breath anyway.

Finn: Okay, what do you guys wanna talk about? Do you wanna swap baby stories? We’ve got a ton of them.

Steffy: You can tell he’s a proud papa.

Finn: And very happy husband.

Hope: Aw, that’s so great. And you deserve it, especially after…

Finn: Uh, no, it’s okay. You can say it. Especially after what happened at the wedding reception. And since… I won’t lie. Steffy and I, we’ve had our challenges these past few weeks, but don’t all marriages?

Steffy: Yeah, but nothing really compares to the challenges sheila presents.

Liam: Presents? Like presents currently? I thought she left town.

Steffy: Uh, yeah, so did we. But she, um, she came back. And then she “collapsed” when she didn’t get what she wanted. Yeah, I think it was just a desperate ploy to attach herself to finn and hayes, but it didn’t work, did it?

Eric: There’s a welcome sight.

[ Chuckling ]

Ridge: About to say the same. You finally got here, huh?

Eric: I can come in here any time I like. This is my building. My desk. My drawing table. Everything’s mine here.

Ridge: Yeah, they’re your pens. What are you, five? Yes, this is all yours. Also, this is yours and it needs your signature, so whenever you have a moment.

Eric: Put that on my desk.

Ridge: Wow.

Eric: I see you’re busy at it yourself this morning.

Ridge: Yeah, no, I got here on time, started working and got some things done. Yeah, that’s what I did.

Eric: Good.

Ridge: And, um, I talked to carter… about this proposal. I’m not sure, dad. It, uh, sounds a little strange to me. And I feel it’s a big price to pay.

Eric: Oh, you mean–

Ridge: No, like you said, it’s your shop, it’s all good and in the end–

Eric: No, no, you’re talking about the berlin boutique acquisition, right?

Ridge: What else would I be talking about?

Eric: So what about it?

Ridge: What is wrong with you today? Why are you so fuzzy and weird? You just tired from reconnecting with quinn last night and this morning?

Eric: You know what, I am determined to give quinn the life that she… that she deserves.

Eric: I know how the two of you feel about each other. I do. I think that we should encourage that.

Quinn: Encourage it?

Carter: I miss you so much. I miss every inch of you. I miss kissing you, I miss touching you. I miss making love to you. I think about you all the time.

Quinn: Carter. I had to see you. We need to talk about what happened last night. On the outside, I looked fine.

Finn: And I have to admit to being conflicted. For years, I imagined what it would be like to meet my birth mother. Just– the thing is, I never imagined it being someone like sheila.

Liam: Yeah, so how did you end things with her?

Hope: Yeah, is she still in the hospital?

Steffy: No, no. The doctors ran tests but they couldn’t find anything. I’m not surprised.

Liam: So she’s discharged.

Steffy: Yeah, but finn made it very to clear to her she couldn’t be in his life of hayes’.

Finn: Couldn’t have sheila continuing to disrupt my family, no matter how much she claims she loves and cares about me.

Hope: Well, do you think she will actually stay away?

Steffy: I know what you’re thinking. You’re worried about kelly.

Liam: Yes, I’ve mentioned that before but I also realize it’s finn and hayes sheila’s obsessed with, right? I just wouldn’t want kelly around that–

Steffy: Everything’s gonna be fine. Nothing’s gonna happen to her.

Liam: Okay, yeah.

Steffy: Finn and I will see to that.

Hope: Also, just so you know, the kids are always, always welcome to stay with us until you feel totally comfortable and sure that sheila will stay away.

Steffy: I’m not certain we could ever be absolutely sure, you know, given sheila’s track record. If she senses weakness, she’s gonna take advantage. That’s why finn had to put his foot down. Leave no doubt in sheila’s mind that this is the end of the road.

Liam: Hey, sounds like you didn’t mince words.

Steffy: I’m just gonna make sure sheila does not come near me or my family ever again.

Ridge: Well, that’s nothing new, is it? Same, same story over and over again. What do you wanna do for quinn? You want her to be happy, give her the life she deserves. Whatever. What about you? What about your happiness? Are you happy that she’s back?

Eric: Why wouldn’t i be happy, ridge?

Ridge: I don’t know. No, I do know. Because five minutes ago– no, two minutes ago, you were upset that your wife had an affair with somebody else and you wanted her gone and now, she’s back. No explanation. She’s back.

Eric: Ridge, I have explained it. I’ve explained it to you and brooke over and over again.

Ridge: I know you think that, but dad, all you did was tell us that quinn is back. You put that ugly portrait back over the fireplace and there she was at the dinner table. That’s all you did. Dad, I don’t wanna fight with you. We love you. Everybody loves you. I want you to be happy and healthy and I want you to have a partner that is there for you, that doesn’t disappoint you or betray you.

Eric: I don’t wanna go there again with you. I don’t wanna do this.

Ridge: I have questions. You need to help me. I know what happened in your marriage. I know. And I don’t understand what happened after that. And you’re reluctant to talk about it. So this is it? This is what you want? You want that woman in your life for the rest of your life?

Eric: This woman would not be in my life right now if that’s not what I wanted.

Ridge: This woman that you want in your life so badly had an affair with someone. Have you forgotten about their little relationship?

Eric: No, I have not. I’ve not forgotten about the relationship she had with carter. I haven’t and I won’T.

Quinn: I know we agreed that we wouldn’t talk about what happened or what didn’t happen, but eric’s attitude hasn’t changed.

Carter: You talked to him about it?

Quinn: Yes, of course. I talked to him about it last night after you left. I went upstairs, he wasn’t asleep. He wanted to know whether we, you know, did it and I said no. We didn’T. We couldn’T.

Carter: How’d he react?

Quinn: I couldn’t tell whether he was relieved or not. Doesn’t your family deserve the best?

Finn: Okay. Let’s put a moratorium on all things sheila. At least for now. Drop the topic. Today’s supposed to be about our families, right? Having a good day at the beach?

Steffy: Yes. And once hayes wakes up, we’re going to kick everything into high gear.

Hope: All right, sounds like a plan.

Liam: Yeah, for sure. Actually, before that happens, can I just say one thing? I just really admire the way that you guys have been handling this. Obviously, it’s really stressful. Obviously, it’s not the kind of thing you wanna be dealing with the first, what, three weeks of marriage. But what’s obvious is how you guys have come through on the other side of this, right, which is stronger and more in love than ever. And I think what that says is that this thing that you two have with each other is more powerful that any adversity that you’re gonna face and that includes sheila. And sorry, I didn’t wanna make a whole speech. I just wanted to say that.

Finn: I couldn’t have said it better. If it wasn’t for this remarkable woman, this amazing wife and mother. Steffy’s my rock, my family’s rock. She’s fearless and fierce and… I’ve never loved anyone the way I love her.

Ridge: Put that down for a second please. If you haven’t forgotten about quinn and carter, how can you have that woman back in your house? Back in your bed?

Eric: Ridge, ridge… I’ve tried to explain this to you and brooke. Look, it’S… it’s complicated. It’s very complicated. There’s a lot you don’t know. There’s a lot you don’t understand.

Ridge: I know there is. Explain it to me. What is it? Is quinn holding something over you?

Eric: No. No, no, of course not.

Ridge: Dad… I love you so much. If there’s something going on, if you want to open up to anyone, let it be me. Is there something I should know?

Carter: We need to figure this out.

Quinn: It’s all I’ve been thinking about since last night.

Carter: Yeah, me too. For eric to suggest this–

Quinn: Oh, come on. It’s more than suggesting. He wants you and me to be together because he can’T.

Carter: Because he loves you so damn much.

Quinn: This whole thing has me so conflicted and confused.

Carter: Me too.

Quinn: Eric doesn’t want me to live a life without passion and desire. He knows how much that physical connection is important to me. But I told him I would forego all of that just, you know, to be with him, to be his wife because it’s enough. And it is.

Carter: Is it?

Quinn: I don’t know. I don’t know. I mean, I keep telling myself that it is. Carter, I mean, I can be honest with you. What we shared, what eric is giving us permission to do, we can’t possibly do what my husband is asking… can we?

[ Dramatic music ]

Quinn: I don’t know what to say… it wasn’t my place to share with you that eric’S… struggling with E.D., But… he can’t possibly mean this–

Carter: No, he’s not thinking straight, quinn. He can’t be. I mean, you’re his wife and I’m sorry he’s lost his ability to be intimate. But to make this request and then go up upstairs to sleep?

Quinn: Wait, wait, we both heard exactly what he said, right? He–he loves me so much he doesn’t want me to lose this aspect of my life. He still wants to be my husband, but he wants you and me to–

Carter: Be together tonight.

Brooke: Eric is such a sensitive and caring man.

Donna: He’s wonderful. He deserves nothing but the very best.

Katie: The last few times I’ve been around, I mean– he just doesn’t seem like himself.

Brooke: That’s because of quinn and the stress that she puts on him.

Katie: He’s puts on a smile for everyone else but I would like to see him actually happy.

Donna: He claims that he’s happy with quinn.

Katie: Well, how can he be after all that betrayal?

Brooke: He needs a good woman. A wife who can be committed and faithful to him.

Katie: How many more chances is eric going to give quinn?

Donna: He must still have faith that somehow they can work through their differences.

Brooke: Arguing over finances or where to go for dinner, that’s one thing. But trying to earn trust back– that’s completely different.

Katie: I just can’t believe he took her back after her affair with carter.

Donna: He is a lot more forgiving than I could ever be.

Brooke: He cuts her way too much slack, that’s for sure.

Katie: I just, I feel bad for him. I mean, clearly he’s doing everything he can to make things work.

Brooke: Yeah, but I mean to what extent? Quinn’s just going to keep taking and taking and taking!

Donna: I hope she appreciates how kind and understanding he’s been through this.

Katie: Oh. Quinn’s never satisfied with what she has. She always wants more.

Brooke: I really thought he lost it with her.

Donna: I guess he’s just trying to salvage whatever they have left.

Brooke: But is that really reasonable? What more could he possibly do to make quinn happy?

Eric: I know how she feels about me. And I know how she feels about you. I think that we should encourage that.

Quinn: Encourage it?

Eric: My sex life is over. Yours doesn’t have to be. The night is yours if you want it.

Quinn: I can’t believe what eric is suggesting we do.

Carter: Yeah, when I got his text to come over tonight, this is–

[ Chuckling ] Not what I imagined.

Brooke: Carter, you’ve been put in the most awkward position, I’m so sorry.

Carter: It seems like he’s coming from a good place though, right? Like, this isn’t a test to measure our loyalty?

Quinn: No, no, no, it’s not that. I–& I think he really means it. He’s willing to make this sacrifice for me, for our marriage. Must have been a really… difficult decision for him to make.

Carter: Yeah. It proves how much he loves you. He said tonight’S…ours.

[ Quinn sighing ]

From the very first touch,

Katie: I’m sure eric appreciates the companionship, but how many times has he had to explain quinn’s behavior or apologize for her actions?

Donna: The list is a mile long.

Katie: It’s endless. And it keeps getting worse and worse. I mean, it’s bad enough that she’s turned her back on her wedding vows. But what’s next? I mean where’s the breaking point?

Brooke: That’s right. That’s what I keep saying. I mean, why should eric be stuck in this cold, dysfunctional marriage?

Donna: Sis, what are you doin’?

Brooke: I… am calling eric.

[ Phone ringing ]

Eric: Brooke.

Brooke: Hi, eric. I hope I’m not calling too late.

Eric: No, no, no. It’s all right. Is everything– is everything okay?

Brooke: I hope so. I’m here with donna and katie. We’re on speaker phone.

Eric: Wow, you are. Well hello, ladies.

Donna: Hi, eric–

Katie: How’s it goin’?

Brooke: We just wanted to tell you that we were thinking about you and thinking about all those years gone by–great memories.

Donna: So many, so many wonderful memories.

Eric: We’ve all been very lucky.

Brooke: Look, I’m going to get straight to the point here. Um… you know we’re not fans of your wife.

Eric: Is that right? Yeah, I wasn’t aware of that. Is that true?

Brooke: And we were wondering why you took quinn back after she had that affair with carter.

Eric: Look, I’d rather not talk about all that right now. All right? I’m just off to bed. So…

Brooke: Oh eric, I’m– I’m sorry. I don’t mean to just dump this on you, it’s just– we want to remind you that you’re an amazing, loving and giving man.

Donna: Eric, it’s true. You–you’re one in a million. You know? Special in every way.

Brooke: And don’t you forget it.

Donna: Any woman should be thanking her lucky stars to be with you.

Katie: I agree with my sisters. I don’t want you to ever change. I don’t want you to lose sight of what’s important because you are perfect just the way you are.

Donna: All we’ve ever wanted for you is your happiness.

Brooke: And we’re not sure that quinn can give that to you. We just don’t want you to be stuck in an unaffectionate, loveless marriage.

Eric: Listen, ladies. I’m convinced that I’m not going to live in a passionless, empty marriage. I’m going to be fine. I appreciate your care and your concern for me, I really do, but uh, I’m going to go to bed. Thanks very much, bye.

Brooke: I hope that was okay.

Katie: It was sweet of you to reach out.

Donna: He did sound a little down though. You know, like–I don’t know, he’s like feeling alone.

Quinn: He’s proven it to me over and over again. He let me back in this house. He finally opened up about all of his private struggles. But how can he possibly think that this is the solution? That–that allowing you and me to–

[ Whispering ] I can’T.

Carter: Yeah, I feel the same way. As much as I want… I respect eric too much and I already feel bad for betraying him. Even with his blessing this still feels…

Quinn: I know. I know exactly what you’re saying. I mean, what eric is suggesting– he must really feel like this is the only way to save our marriage– you giving me what he can’T. I–I mean, look. On one level, it’s–it’s very loving, it’s very selfless, right? But we can’T. It’s wrong on every other level, it is wrong.

Carter: I don’t disagree. We’re not doing this.

Quinn: No.

Carter: We can’T. And it kills me quinn, it kills me because I miss you so much. I miss every inch of you. I miss kissing you, I miss touching you, I miss making love to you. I think about you all the time.

Psst! Psst!

Quinn: I miss you too, carter. The time we spent together, it was… it was incredible. But it was also terribly wrong. It was betrayal to eric.

Carter: I can’t go back there.

Quinn: No. No, we can’t do what he is suggesting.

Carter: We wouldn’t be able to stop ourselves. I’m going home.

Quinn: Yeah, that is– it’s for the best.

[ Exhales ] Please… I don’t ever want to talk about this ever again. Okay. You should go. Um… I need to go upstairs and lord only knows what eric is thinking all alone in our bedroom.

Carter: You’re an amazing woman, quinn. Eric is lucky to have you in his life.

Quinn: You’re an amazing man. Carter, you’re incredible in every way. Goodnight.

[ Sobbing ]

Brooke: Did eric seem uncomfortable to you?

Donna: He knows you mean well. He knows you just called because you’re worried about him.

Brooke: I’m sure he’s sick of hearing it from me.

Katie: You care about him. You’re trying to protect him. You don’t want to see him getting hurt again.

Donna: And I’m sure he appreciates the support.

Brooke: Yeah, I should probably just let it go.

Katie: It was harmless. You gave him a little pep talk. We let him know that we’re thinking about him.

Donna: I bet he wasn’t expecting a late-night conference from the three of us.

Katie: Well, at least we didn’t video call at him.

[ Laughing ]

Brooke: If we did, quinn would’ve grabbed that phone out right of his hand.

Donna: And I’m sure that’s part of the reason why he, you know, was distant. He’s probably not in bed by himself.

Brooke: Yeah…

Eric: Quinn.

Quinn: Sorry. I didn’t know if you were asleep yet.

Eric: No, I haven’t fallen asleep yet. I’m just… I’m just sitting here like A…

Quinn: No. Lactaid is 100% real milk, just without the lactose.

Katie: Okay, who else are we going to call next? Who’s night are we going to make?

Donna: Oh, it’s been a while since we’ve done some prank phone calls.

Brooke: Aren’t we too old for that?

Katie: Never, never too old for anything.

Brooke: Aren’t most people in bed by now?

Katie: How about… -johnny leventino?

Donna: Oh my–

Brooke: Wait, isn’t that the guy that you had a crush on in grade school?

Katie: Hey, I saw a picture of him. He still has all his hair.

Donna: I haven’t thought about him in years.

Katie: Well, maybe he’s single. Ready to mingle.

Donna: Oh no– okay. All right. Worth a shot.

[ Laughing ]

Brooke: Okay, okay. You girls stay here and have your fun. I’m going to go home to my hot, sexy husband.

Katie: Okay, fine. Say hello to your hot– I mean, husband from your single sister,

Brooke: Honey, you’ll find romance again some day. I’m sure there’s that special man out there for you. Oh, come on.

Donna: Who am I kidding? There is only one man for me. The true love of my life. It’s eric forrester.

[ Crying ]

Brooke: Oh…

> Quinn: You’re an amazing man. The time we spent together was… it was incredible. Carter, you’re incredible in every way.

Eric: You look beautiful, quinn.

Quinn: Thanks. It’s new.

Eric: I’m talking about you. You’re an exquisite woman, quinn.

Quinn: You’re sweet. Always makin’ me feel good.

Eric: What are you thinking about?

Quinn: I’m trying to process everything that happened, right? Didn’t happen. Look, I know you love me, eric. But what you did tonight…

Eric: You’re like a wonderful, exquisite work of art, you know that? But spirited, full of energy. Passionate and excited. There’s a passion I can not fulfill, you know that.

Quinn: Yes, you can.

Eric: I can’T. We both know that. We’ve gone through this before. It’s a passion that needs to be fulfilled and I can’t fill it. But carter can.

Quinn: I have everything I need, right here. You’re enough. You’re more than enough, eric. Good night.

[ Dramatic music ]

Quinn: Eric, what are you– what are you saying?

Eric: That I love you. I love you so deeply. I planned this night for you.

Carter: Okay, you obviously have big plans for quinn, so I’mma get out of the way–

Eric: No, no. You don’t leave. You stay here, please. Stay. You’re right. I do have plans for my wife for tonight. A surprise. And I want you to be a part of it.

Brooke: This is delicious.

Katie: Oh, I know. Isn’t it though?

Donna: Thank you for suggesting this.

Katie: Well thank you for not killing me for wanting to do takeout. I just couldn’t miss that call to tokyo.

Brooke: We understand. Just so we could sit down and share a meal together. No matter the location.

Donna: Seems like it’s been a long time since we’ve done this.

Katie: Yeah, it’s been way too long.

Brooke: We’ve all been so busy. Lots going on.

Donna: No, you two have. Not me. My life is pretty uneventful these days. The most excitement I’m getting is taking beth and douglas to get ice cream. Yeah, I actually look forward to finding out what the flavor of the month is. Mm-hmm. That’s how boring I’ve become.

[ Laughing ]

Brooke: I remember when you used to talk about the flavors of the month and you always referring to men.

Donna: Brooke, I mean, come on.

Brooke: It’s true. Maybe that’s what you need to spice up your life a little bit. A new man. So is there anybody you have your eye on?

Liam: Sir.

Wyatt: Thank you. Gotta say, it’s good seeing you like this.

Liam: Yeah, thank you. Wait, like what?

Wyatt: You know, not in a jumpsuit.

Liam: Ah, yeah. Not gonna miss that.

Wyatt: I mean, it was a good color on you.

Liam: It was a good color. I thought it was a good color. Hope threw out all my blue shirts, except for this one. We had to arm wrestle over it. This is marriage. This is–

Wyatt: I’m not surprised. God, she’s gotta be relieved.

Liam: You have no idea.

Wyatt: Well look, now I don’t have to worry about you or dad. Or even my mom, for that matter. Just seems like everyone is right where they belong.

Liam: I mean, yeah, I heard about that. So, your mom and eric are back together.

Wyatt: Yeah. You sound surprised.

Liam: No–I just. Well, maybe. Listen, if it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be. Right?

Wyatt: Okay, now you sound skeptical. Why?

Liam: I’m not skeptical, it’s just– okay, maybe a little bit. He was about to throw her out, right? Like they were gonna sign divorce papers and now everything’s totally fine. And I think we’re all a little–a little skeptical.

Katie: I don’t think she’s talking about a new man.

Brooke: Somebody you’ve had your eye on for a while?

Donna: Well, you know, it’s not like somebody I’m actively pursuing or anything, but I’d give it another go.

Brooke: I know you have a history with justin, but you know what he did to bill.

Katie: Oh, I don’t think she’s talking about justin but you might be on the right track when it comes to ex-husbands.

Brooke: Oh, you’re talking about eric.

Donna: The one man I should have never let get away.

Carter: You want me to stay?

Eric: Yes. Yes, I do.

Carter: But you have such a lovely evening planned, just the two of you.

Eric: We did. And we had a wonderful evening. Absolutely. It was wonderful. It was very romantic with my lovely quinn. But now I think my evening’s over.

Quinn: It is?

Eric: Yeah. But I don’t think it’s over for my wife yet. I think this evening has just begun for her. I’ve lost count of how many asthma attacks I’ve had.

Katie: I can understand why part of you has never been able to let eric go.

Donna: But I have. I mean, you know, for the most part. It’s not like I’m pining away for him or anything.

Brooke: How many dates have you been on recently?

Donna: Recently as in–

Katie: As in the last month?

Donna: I mean, I don’t– look, I said my life has been pretty boring lately.

Katie: Okay. How many dates have you been on in the last year?

Donna: I don’t know. Look, guys, it’s not like I go on those apps anymore. It’s just–so disappointing, you know? I mean nobody ever comes close.

Brooke: To eric.

Donna: Yeah. I don’t know. I guess I was just spoiled. You know, like–

[ Sighing ] He always just made me feel so important. So wanted. So desired.

[ Sighing ] You know, my honey bear couldn’t get enough of me.

Brooke: Yeah, it’s true. I’ll never believe eric can feel for quinn what he felt for you.

Donna: That’s sweet of you to say.

Brooke: Well, you lit a fire under him. You did. And with her, I don’t see a fire, do you?

Katie: With eric and quinn? I don’t even see smoke.

[ Chuckling ]

Liam: You know, I’m not trying to diss your mom.

Wyatt: No. Look, I get it, alright? My mother has made some very interesting choices in her life and well, she’s lucky that eric has been so forgiving.

Liam: Yeah, she is. She is. I gotta say, it was pretty bad, even for quinn though, you know, hooking up with carter.

Wyatt: I know. I know. It’s ridge’s best friend. The person that eric trusts the most at forrester. It’s just–my mom is so often her own worst enemy.

Liam: But, listen. I–I thought it was over. Right? I thought eric would just walk away and look where we are.

Wyatt: Yeah, people have been doubting their relationship for years. I mean, hell, I’m guilty of that too. But this, I think it finally proves, you know, eric forgiving my mom, it shows how deep his feelings run for her and how important that relationship is for him. I think eric could do just about anything for my mom.

Quinn: I–I’m so confused. I thought you were having as much fun tonight as I was.

Eric: I was. There’s nobody in the world I’d rather spend time with than you.

Quinn: Except for carter because you invited him to join us. Why? Why are you being so mysterious?

Eric: I don’t mean to be mysterious. It’s not a game to me at all. This is a very serious matter.

Quinn: What is?

Eric: Your needs.

Quinn: My needs?

Eric: Your needs that I can’t fulfill.

Quinn: Eric, I told you. You fulfill me.

Eric: I do. I know. In so many ways. And I’m grateful for that. But there are ways that I can’t fulfill you. And that’s what I’m talking about. I can’t ask you to sacrifice that part of your life. I can be your loving husband. I can be an attentive partner to you, but at the same time, I can’t– I don’t have to spell it out for you, do I? I know how the two of you feel about each other. I do. I know there’s no need for us to hide that. I’m totally aware of it. I think that we should encourage that.

Quinn: Encourage it?

Eric: Look, I told you… my sex life is over. Yours doesn’t have to be. Does your vitamin c last twenty-four hours?

Brooke: I really thought eric would be rid of quinn, once and for all. Especially after this thing with carter.

Katie: I thought his eyes had been opened there for a while.

Brooke: He’s just too forgiving.

Donna: I think it’s just because he’s so loyal. To a fault. I mean how else would you explain these relationships? I know I’m the one who messed up ours. And believe me, I would never ever again, given the chance.

Brooke: Oh, so there might be a chance? Does he know that this could be an option?

Donna: Oh, no, no, no please. Don’t even go there. I am not throwing myself at a married man.

Katie: Even though everyone knows that you would be better for him?

Donna: I–I respect his choices. His commitment.

Brooke: Honey, I am not asking you to sabotage his marriage. Quinn will do that all on her own. I’m just saying, let eric know that you’ll be there for him if and when she does.

Liam: Hey, listen, maybe I’m wrong to be skeptical, because clearly eric has shown how much he cares about her and even if it was surprising that he took her back. There was no doubt that he loves her.

Wyatt: There’s no doubt at all. And it goes both ways too. Mom loves him. She feels terrible about what she did. The last thing she wants to do is hurt eric.

Liam: Right, but that does raise the question, why would she put her marriage in jeopardy in the first place?

Wyatt: I don’t know. I mean, I’m not sure of all the details, nor do I want to know them but to my understanding, she was a bit starved, shall we say, when it came to affection.

[ Clears throat ] Issues in the bedroom.

Liam: Oh, right. Okay, yikes.

Wyatt: Look, eric got really ticked off that my mom was trying to break up ridge and brooke and I think it just made him lose interest. Thankfully, that’s all behind them now, all right? Or, at least, I hope so.

Eric: Look, this isn’t easy. I wanna do what’s best. I wanna do what’s best.

Quinn: Look, you wanna have a discussion about what’s best for me? Fine. Let’s do it. But alone, without carter present.

Carter: Agreed. You two should talk.

Eric: No, you don’t go anywhere. Not until you hear me out.

Quinn: No. There is nothing else to be heard here. This is not happening. I’m not gonna jump in bed with another man because you aren’t able to–

Eric: This man. This man. This man you turned to when I wasn’t able to–

Quinn: Okay, but we almost got a divorce over that, remember?

Eric: I’m doing the best I can. I don’t like this. I don’t like that I can’t fulfill you.

Quinn: Eric.

Eric: I can’t do the things for you that a younger man can. This man.

Brooke: Honestly, I’m not rooting for that marriage to end.

Katie: Yes you are.

Brooke: I’m not. Not if he truly wants to be with quinn. Do I want him with quinn? No. Absolutely not. But eric feels differently.

Katie: I guess if we don’t see the fire and passion, eric does and that’s all that matters. I just hope quinn realizes how lucky she is because I don’t think there’s another man out there that would have such a forgiving heart. Or such an enormous capacity to love.

Liam: Alright, so, you know, carter’s just coming off a difficult breakup, your mom is not feeling very…attended to.

Wyatt: Yes, yes.

Liam: Listen, I’m just saying it’s a little easier to understand why they did what they did.

Wyatt: I know– and I’m not trying to justify what they did. But yeah, they– they started confiding in each other and spending time together and connecting.

Liam: You and I both know you can’t just turn that off.

Wyatt: I know. But they have to. They have to because eric has taken her back. He’s forgiven them both. And all of them work at forrester together. It’s complicated. I don’t know. I don’t know how they did it, but it does seem like they have figured out a way, the three of them, to just make the relationship work.

Carter: Eric, to even suggest this, it shows how deeply you love quinn. I respect you so much now. And I feel for you. That being said, you can’t just decide that quinn and I should sleep together. You’re my boss and I take orders from you at the office but in life, I’m my own man. And I’m not going to fall in bed with quinn because you deemed it’s okay. Now I get it. I get that you’re frustrated and I would be too if I was in your shoes but it is wrong to ask me to be some sort of– some stand-in for you.

Eric: I don’t think so. Not given how you two feel about each other.

Quinn: Okay, hey. I know– I know you mean well. You’re trying to do what you think is right for me but… we’re married.

Eric: We were married when you turned to carter in the first place. It doesn’t need to be behind my back anymore. I want there to be some approval here.

Quinn: It’s approval for something that we’re not even asking for. I’m committed to you. I am committed to our marriage. I– I told you that you’re not alone in this. I am going to stay by your side.

Eric: Thank god. I want you to. I want that more than anything. But I don’t want you to have to give up anything to do that. I don’t want you to make that kind of a sacrifice.

Quinn: I don’t feel like it’s a sacrifice. I’m willing to give it up.

Eric: I don’t want you to.

Quinn: For you! I’m willing to give up anything to be with you.

Eric: I don’t want you to give up anything. I don’t want you to. I don’t want you to give up how sensual you are, how sexual you are. I don’t want you to have to give that up. How long have we been married? And I have benefited so much from your sensuality. It’s what drew me into you in the first place. But things have changed. They have. If you were my age, if you were closer to my age, maybe they wouldn’t have changed so much. Maybe I wouldn’t feel like I was robbing you of anything.

Quinn: Come on, you knew what our age difference was when we got together in the first place.

Eric: Well, I was able to keep up with you, wasn’t I? But not anymore. Not anymore. I know how she feels about me. And I know how she feels about you. We’re all adults here. It’s okay. The night is yours if you want it.

[ Dramatic music ]

Sheila: You’re my son. We have the same dna. The same blood running through our veins…

Steffy: Don’t listen to her!

Sheila: We are connected forever. I feel it in my heart, in my very soul and I know that you do, too.

Steffy: Finn. Finn, please just–just look at me. She’s manipulating you! All we have to do is just walk out of the room and never see her again.

Sheila: Why don’t you ever let finn make his own decisions? Son, I’m begging you. Please don’t turn your back on me. I love you. Just let me be a part of your life.

Quinn: Mm… mm, mm, mm. Well, you never cease to amaze me. This is such a romantic surprise.

Eric: I think there’s one surprise you could’ve done without, isn’t there?

Quinn: Oh, c’mon. Haven’t you heard? Sex is overrated.

Eric: If only.

Quinn: No, c’mon honey. You’ll see. This too shall pass. And I refuse to believe that this E.D. Is permanent. And who knows, maybe tonight is the night that changes everything.

Eric: I’m counting on that.

Ridge: Oh boy. Once again, I’m overdressed. What’re we doin’?

Carter: I spilled coffee all over myself so I’m changing my clothes.

Ridge: Coffee, huh?

Carter: I reached out to the judge about moving up that hearing date for sheila’s restraining order. Waiting to hear back from her.

Ridge: Well, anything you can do is appreciated. Thank you.

Carter: Yeah, I know you’re worried about steffy. I’ll convey the urgency.

Ridge: I am worried. Got sheila running around with some kind of… biological claim on her family. I’m also a little worried about my dad.

Ridge: I’m trying to get used to the idea that my dad forgave quinn and took her back.

Carter: I was caught off guard, too. But I’m guessing no one’s more surprised than quinn, right?

Ridge: She should be surprised after what she did…

Carter: Look, I genuinely want what’s best for those two. Eric and quinn love each other deeply. They belong together.

Eric: A dance, my love?

Quinn: Ooh.

Eric: Right this way.

[ Romantic music ] Now you spin.

[ Quinn laughing ]

[ Quinn moaning ]

Quinn: Is everything okay?

Eric: What could be wrong? Dancing here with my beautiful wife. And make no mistake, your beauty is incomparable.

[ Quinn scoffing ]

Steffy: I get why this is hard for you! Sheila is your birth mother and you don’t want to shut her out. But you have another family, another family who needs to be protected from her!

Sheila: I am not a threat! Not to steffy! Not to the kids! I just want to know my son and my grandson!

Dr. Griffith: Everything all right in here?

Finn: Uh yeah, it’s under control, dr. Griffith. Do you have the results?

Dr. Griffith: Your tests and blood work came back normal. No dehydration. Good news, ms. Carter. You appear to be fine. I’ll have the nurse get your discharge started.

Sheila: Thank you, doctor.

[ Steffy laughing ]

Steffy: You see? She’s fine! There was nothing wrong with her to begin with! Sheila played you, finn. Oh, she played you. Some people have joint pain,

Carter: So, you don’t buy it? You don’t believe that eric and quinn love each other?

Ridge: After everything that went down, no. I’m not buying any of it.

Carter: But see, that’s it. That’s how the whole thing went down. Look, I was messed up after zoe, quinn was reeling from eric’s rejection, ridge. That’s how this happened. That was the perfect storm.

Ridge: Hey, why don’t we do this. Why don’t we see what happens tonight. Dad has planned something special for her. He’s a master of romance. So, we’ll see. Hey, I learned from him believe it or not.

Carter: Did you learn from him?

Ridge: Yeah.

Carter: Hm.

Ridge: Let’s get on with your night. Keep your shirt on.

Carter: I’ll try.

[ Phone ding ]

Eric: Sorry to leave you even for a moment. Something I had to take care of.

Quinn: No problem.

Eric: You admiring your portrait, are ya?

Well, I can’t help it.

Eric: No reason you should have to. I know how significant it is to you.

Quinn: Every time I look at that portrait, it just– it reminds me of how far I’ve come. I mean, I am married to mr. Eric forrester. I get to call this beautiful mansion my home. My jewelry line is successful beyond my wildest dreams, and… it’s all because of you. ‘Cause you love me. ‘Cause you opened your heart to me. I know you’re going through a really challenging time right now, but you know you’re not alone. I’m your wife. And I will always be right here, by your side.

Eric: My beautiful quinn.

Quinn: I love you… with every ounce of my being. And there is not one challenge out there that we can’t face together.

Eric: When you say it, I believe it.

Quinn: Yeah! You should believe it. You should. Eric, I know I’ve hurt you in the past, I have let you down. That’s never gonna happen again. My commitment to you is 1000%

Eric: I know that now, more than ever.

[ Quinn moaning ]

Sheila: I just, I wish there were something that I could say or do that would put a dent- in this hostility that you’re directing towards me.

Steffy: You can make it go away altogether. Leave and never come back.

Finn: Steffy.

Steffy: She’s a liar. This whole collapse– it was–it was a hoax. You realize that?

Finn: I don’t want to argue about that right now. I’m just glad that sheila’s okay.

Sheila: You know, your concern means a lot to me. It shows me that you do care about what happens to me.

Finn: I realize I owe you both an answer… from earlier. There’s only one thing I can do. Only one decision I can make.

Hey look at this!

Finn: I don’t know if your collapse was real or if you faked it. I mean, I certainly hope you didn’T. I’m glad you’re okay.

Sheila: You’re a compassionate man and I am so proud to call you my son.

Finn: When you told me you were my birth mother, I’d never been more shocked, or unprepared. I’ve wondered about you since dad and li told me I was adopted. What was your name? Did I look like you? Why couldn’t you keep me? I had so many questions that I never thought would be explained to me and then suddenly, there you were. Telling me things that I wanted to know. You gave me up so I would have chances in life that you weren’t equipped to give me. It was overwhelming, to say the least. You’ve had a profound impact on me and I’m glad we met. But my commitment is with steffy and our family. I wish you the best but I can’t have a relationship with you, not with my wife so against it. I’m sorry, but I can’t see you again, sheila. And you can’t be a grandmother to my son.

Sheila: No, you…

[ Voice breaking ] You don’t mean that, please finn. I… don’t shut me out. You and hayes are my family.

Finn: I wish you the best. I mean that.

Sheila: You can change his mind.

Steffy: Yeah, why would I do that?

Sheila: Because I’m his mother. Please, steffy. I didn’t come here to do battle with you. I’m not a bad person. I have goodness and love in my heart if you would just– just meet me in the middle, somewhere. Just give me a chance. Please, I will show you that I mean you no harm. I just want to know my son and my grandson.

Steffy: Goodbye, sheila.

[ Grunting ]

Quinn: Hey. I know it’s difficult but I don’t want you to worry. We’re gonna get through this.

Eric: You so beautifully expressed your devotion to me, but we have to be realistic. You’re a young, vibrant, sexy woman and you have needs that I may no longer be able to fulfill. Things that can only be expressed by making love.

Quinn: I don’t want you to think that way. C’mon, who knows what the future’s gonna hold! And no doctor has said this condition is permanent. Stop putting extra pressure on yourself by worrying about my needs. I’m happy, eric. Just being with you makes me happy.

Eric: Your happiness and your well-being are always gonna be my concern.

[ Door opening ]

Quinn: Carter. What are you doing here?

Carter: I got a text from eric.

Eric: I asked carter to join us. Don’t settle for products that give you a sort of white smile.

Quinn: You asked carter to join us?

Eric: Yes, yes, I did.

Carter: Looks like you were enjoying a lovely evening. I don’t want to intrude.

Eric: No, no intrusion. I know how close the two of you have become.

Carter: I’m sorry… where are we going with this?

Quinn: Nowhere. We’re not going anywhere with this. It stops here. Eric, you and I are back together. Why–why are we bringing up something so painful when we’ve already moved past it?

Eric: I didn’t ask carter here to rehash the past. You’re absolutely right. We’ve moved beyond that. My beautiful wife has moved home and she’s here in this house, with me. But I’m not able to be the husband to quinn that she deserves.

Quinn: Eric.

Eric: Look, this is, um. This is not a comfortable subject for me to talk about. I’ve seen doctors and so far, it’s been unsuccessful and, um–

Carter: You’re sick? I was concerned something was wrong. I asked quinn but she didn’t tell me.

Eric: No, no, no. Of course, she wouldn’T. And I love her for that.

Quinn: Why are you doing this?

Eric: At first, I tried to blame quinn for my shortcomings but I realized what I was really doing was just… covering my shame. I’m not able to satisfy my wife. You see what I mean, don’t you?

Carter: Yes… yes, and wow, um. I don’t know what to say, eric, but I’m sorry.

Eric: I was hoping for a spontaneous breakthrough when quinn moved home but unfortunately that hasn’t happened.

Quinn: Eric, why are you telling carter this?

Eric: Because I’ve come to the conclusion that just because my sex life is over, doesn’t mean yours has to be.

Steffy: Hayes goes down so much easier than kelly did at that age. So nice.

Finn: That age? She still fights it with everything she’s got.

Steffy: Yeah, and then all of a sudden she just passes out.

Finn: Should I open some wine?

Steffy: Oh babe, please. That sounds so great. Oh my goodness.

[ Finn sighing ]

Finn: I need to apologize again to you for sending that emoji to sheila. It was an impulse and I followed it. I mean, I should never have responded at all.

Steffy: I’m glad you realize that now.

Finn: I…I truly believed that she was out of our lives. That’s why I didn’t tell you. I thought it was one and done and I didn’t want to worry needlessly. I know now that was the wrong call.

Steffy: Well, you can’t beat yourself up. You were in a terrible position. And I get it, you wanted to know your mother. You were curious and that’s a completely normal reaction but, sheila is far from normal. I mean, faking a fall like that? That just proves that she hasn’t changed. She’s still this twisted, obsessive woman. But I am glad that you put your foot down, and you told her that she couldn’t be in your life, or hayes’. We still need to be vigilant. We have to keep our guard up. She doesn’t just walk away quietly. But you did the right thing breaking ties with her. And I’m really proud that you put our family first.

Finn: Always.

Sheila: Boy, it would be a mistake to count me out.

[ Grunting ] The forresters! They all write me off. They– they throw me away like I’m trash. But I will be a part of this family. Finn is my son and hayes is my grandson and I will be a part of their lives. And you better not try to stop me, steffy, or you’re gonna pay. You’re gonna pay dearly.

[ Dramatic music ]

Sheila: Can you see it now?

Steffy: It’s not what it looks like.

Sheila: It’s a text from finn on my phone.

Steffy: No. No, he wouldn’T.

Sheila: He did. And you tell me that I’m never going to be a part of finn’s life, but my son loves me, steffy. That text proves it. Finn sent me a heart emoji. I am gonna be a part of my son’s life. And there’s nothing you can do to stop that from happening.

Paris: I know you wanna get back to sheila.

Finn: I should. Paris, thank you for coming. And for being here for me.

Paris: Look, I know emergencies are your job but that’s your birth mother in there. I mean, it must have been really upsetting seeing her collapse.

Finn: I feel terrible. I could see she was getting agitated but I was so focused on getting her out of the house, making her leave, telling her to never see me again. That’s when she passed out.

Eric: Finn is bound to feel guilty about this.

Quinn: That’s the point. Classic sheila move.

Ridge: Well, apparently it worked. She’s at the hospital with my son-in-law by her side.

Eric: Exactly what we were afraid of. She’s using finn to worm her way back into our family.

Ridge: Not gonna let that happen.

Eric: I thought we had a restraining order against her.

Ridge: Well, we don’t have it yet.

Carter: Ridge.

Ridge: He’s the guy you wanna talk to about that.

Carter: Talk to me about what?

Ridge: The restraining order against sheila. You realize that every second we don’t have it, she gets her claws deeper and deeper into this family?

Carter: We have a hearing date for the restraining order but if sheila’s done something else–

Quinn: She’s running a game on finn.

Eric: She pretended to faint while he was trying to kick her out of the house.

Carter: She went there again?

Ridge: Of course she went there again. She’s gonna keep going there because she wants to have a relationship with finn. But more than that, she wants to be by my grandson.

[ Sighing ]

Finn: This is not where I thought I would be today, dealing with this. Steffy and I patched things up.

Paris: Wow, that’s great!

Finn: But then as soon as she left for work, sheila showed up and all I could think was “get her out”.

Paris: You can’t blame yourself for this. You are the reason that sheila’s here and she’s getting the care she needs. Even if steffy doesn’t think she really needs it.

Finn: Steffy has every reason not to want sheila in our lives.

Paris: Yes, they have a very complicated history. But we are talking about the woman who gave birth to you.

Finn: And if she was anyone else, I could have a relationship with her, but I’m not going to do that to my wife, to my family. I promised steffy no contact.

Paris: Well, you aren’t the one that invited her to your house. Your dad told her that she could meet hayes and you didn’t even say anything in the text message that you sent to her was just an emoji. Oh. Steffy still doesn’t know about that.

Finn: No. She’s already stressed out about everything else. I’m not gonna upset her even more.

Steffy: This can’t be real. Obviously you made this up.

Sheila: Check– check the text. It came from finn’s phone. Look at again if you need to, steffy. But I was– I was saying goodbye. I was leaving town and then finn texted me that heart showing me that he wanted me to stay. He doesn’t want me to go. He still doesn’T.

Steffy: Why would I believe you? All you do is lie.

Sheila: You want more proof?

Steffy: That doesn’t prove anything.

Sheila: What about today? The way my son took care of me and came to my aid. That tells me more than any text ever could. Does your vitamin c last twenty-four hours?

Ridge: We have to get control of the situation. ‘Cause right now all we’re doing is reacting to whatever sheila does and that’s gonna stop.

Carter: At least we know where she is.

Ridge: Yeah, we know where she is. You know who else is there? Finn and my daughter.

Eric: How long are they gonna be there in the hospital?

Quinn: As long as she’s getting sympathy from her son, the doctor, she’s gonna stay there as long as she can.

Eric: If sheila starts getting desperate, I agree with you. Steffy’s gonna confront her.

Ridge: I like to think my daughter’s smart enough to not put her children in danger.

Eric: Of course she is. I’m more concerned about their relationship. If she’s determined to drive a wedge between finn and steffy.

Quinn: You know, if sheila provokes her, steffy is never going to hold back.

Finn: I should get back in there.

Paris: You gonna be okay?

Finn: Sheila’s stable. The test results will tell us what happened.

Paris: Well, I know she’s gonna be okay because she has the best doctor in the hospital looking out for her. I’m asking about you though, finn. I know you haven’t known her for a very long time but that is your birth mother in there.

Finn: Seeing her go down like that. It shook me up a little.

Paris: I understand. It’s complicated. Being in the middle of a difficult situation like this. But if you ever need someone to talk to, I’m here.

Sheila: The text is from my son.

Steffy: I told you to stop calling him that! He’s my husband and he doesn’t want any contact with you.

Sheila: That’s what you want. You’re trying to lay down the laws saying that he can’t see me or talk to me. But what did he do, huh steffy? I was in trouble and he rushed me to the hospital. He probably saved my life.

Steffy: He did his job. It doesn’t make you special.

Sheila: I am. I am to him.

Steffy: You’re wrong. You’re wrong. You’re just a complication. He knows that you’re not gonna be in our lives, sheila.

Sheila: You just don’t see how this is truly hurting him.

Steffy: You know nothing about my husband.

Sheila: I gave birth to him. He’s a part of me. I’m a part of him.

Steffy: You want him to believe that. You want him to be vulnerable to you. You just keep manipulating him.

Sheila: You’re the one controlling him, not me.

Steffy: I am protecting my family.

Sheila: He’s not afraid of me. Finn didn’t try to chase me out of the house and he put my grandson in my arms. He loves me. He wants me in his life and the sooner you accept that, the better.

Steffy: Is that a threat?

Sheila: This is hurting finn. You have to be seeing that. He is being…

[ Machine beeping faster ] A wonderful husband right now, bowing down to your every unreasonable whim and– finn and I are always going to share a bond. A biological one, but you and your family will never be able to break.

Steffy: You wanna bet? Try coming near me and my family again and see what happens. This twisted fantasy that you have, being in finn’s and hayes’s life, it is not going to happen. It ends now!

Sheila: You forresters. Always telling everybody what to do. And you’ve gotta listen and you’ve gotta do this and it’s my husband and it’s my son. Like I’m not here, like I don’t even exist but I do. They’re my family too and hayes is my grandson!

Steffy: Don’t you dare say his name! Don’t you dare say his name!

[ Loud beeping ]

Paris: Is that–

Steffy: What did you do?

Finn: Mom!

[ Loud beeping ] Your mission:

Eric: I have to believe that finn will do the right thing.

Ridge: Yeah, I wanna believe that too. He loves steffy. He doesn’t wanna disappoint her again, regardless of what game sheila is playing.

Eric: I have to admit that for finn never to see his birth mother again, might seem to him too much of a sacrifice.

Ridge: That’s what you do for someone you love.

[ Phone alert ]

Eric: There’s our meeting in the cutting room. I can postpone–

Ridge: We’re not postponing anything. This woman has disrupted our lives enough as it is. Let’s go.

Eric: I’ll see you later.

Quinn: Steffy will let ridge know if there’s anything really wrong with sheila.

Carter: How are you doing, quinn? Last time we saw each other, I got the sense that something’s going on. Even though you’re back with eric, you can always open up to me. After everything we’ve been through, I’m always gonna care about you.

Steffy: Dr. Griffith said she’s stable.

Finn: Your vitals are normal. How’s your breathing?

Sheila: It’s better. I was just upset.

Finn: You’re supposed to be resting.

Sheila: I know. I was. I woke up and steffy was here and she started attacking me.

Steffy: I never touched you.

Sheila: She said the most terrible things.

Steffy: You see what she’s doing? It’s another one of her manipulations. She isn’t sick.

Finn: I was there when she collapsed, steffy. I called the ambulance. She just had another episode.

Steffy: She just brought you in here to make me look bad. I am telling you, she’s fine.

Sheila: How can I be fine when you tried to cut me out of finn’s and my grandson’s life?

Steffy: You see? You see what she’s doing?

Sheila: Am I not supposed to be upset about that?

Steffy: Have you forgotten all the crimes you’ve committed against my family?

Sheila: That’s not what this is about. It’s about what you saw. Go on. Tell him. Tell finn what you saw on my phone. I am so sorry, but I had to show her that you really did care about me and that if it weren’t for her, I would be a part of your lives. I had to show her the text that you sent me.

Steffy: I told her it wasn’t true. Is it? You promised there would be no contact between you two. Did you send her a heart emoji? Some people have joint pain,

Quinn: Carter, it’s– it’s very kind of you to be concerned.

Carter: Quinn, I’ll never stop thinking about you or being concerned. You know how I feel. How much I love you. How much I miss you. I think about you all the time. But I realize you’re in a different place and honestly I just want you to be happy. I mean, you’re back with eric, you’re back home. That must feel great. And I know eric can’t get enough of you, right?

Carter: Quinn. Look, if there’s something wrong, you can tell me what’s going on.

Quinn: I can’T. I really– I wish I could, but… I miss you. And everything that we had, but I love eric. He’s my husband and I’m 100% committed to him.

Carter: He’s very lucky to have you.

Quinn: Eric loves me very much. He tells me every single day.

Steffy: Did you send sheila that text? I know she lies but is she lying about this?

Finn: No.

Steffy: You replied to her after I told you to have no contact with sheila. Finn!

Finn: She said she was leaving town. I just wanted her to know that I got the message.

Steffy: By sending her a heart?

Finn: Replying “okay”? That seemed a little– I don’t know. But look, I didn’t say anything. And we didn’t communicate.

Steffy: Maybe you didn’t mean to, but by doing that, you let her back in. This woman is more than dangerous. She is evil and what she’s doing to us is evil. I’m not trying to be cruel or unfair right now. I’m trying to protect you and our children. I know that you’ve been thinking about your birth mother. You wanna know her. You wanna help her but you can’t because she’s a sociopath. So that’s why you have to walk away from this. Walk away from this terrible human being.

Sheila: I’m sorry. I am so sorry, finn, honey. I never meant to cause you more trouble.

Steffy: Oh no, don’t listen to her. Please, do not listen to her.

Sheila: I know that you didn’t want steffy to see that text, but she kept saying that all of this was just in my head and that you didn’t care and I know that you do.

Steffy: Stop it! Leave him alone.

Sheila: Look, she’s the one making demands here. Not me. Yes, I’ve done terrible things, things that I do regret. The forrester family, they were attacking me, always and trying to make it so that people didn’t like me, just like steffy is doing right now.

Steffy: Finn, I want her out of our lives. I’m trying to keep our children safe.

Sheila: Please, finn, don’t let her do this. You are my son. And I want to know you. I hated giving you up. And I thought about you everyday. And wondered what you were doing. If you ever thought about me. And I hoped that there would be a day that I’d be able to speak to you. Is that so wrong? Is that a crime? To care for you? For your mother to love you?

Sheila: Because that’s how I feel. And it’s the truth. I love you. I’ve always loved you and I always will. I want to know you. I want to know you. I want to be a part of your life. I want to–I want to know that little boy that I brought into this world. And I think, deep down, that you want to know me too. Please don’t walk out that door. Don’t do it. Don’t leave your mother.

[Siren wailing in distance]

[Monitor beeping steadily]

Steffy: Finn, look at me. I know that it sounds crazy, but she is faking it. It’s an act. She’s manipulating you.

Finn: She lost consciousness, steffy.

Steffy: You were in the middle of telling her you never wanted to see her again, and then she suddenly collapses at our house?

Finn: They’re running a few more tests. We’re just– we’re waiting on the lab results and we–

Steffy: It’s a waste of time! This isn’t real! It’s not real! Sheila is a pro at this. Come on! We have to just–just walk out of here, okay? Let’s walk out of the hospital room and never see her again.

Ridge: I knew it. I knew sheila wouldn’t leave town.

Brooke: Felt way too easy.

Ridge: [Sighs] Finn was wrong to allow her to see hayes. You know that, right?

Brooke: It’s only made her more obsessive.

Ridge: When is this nightmare gonna be over?

Brooke: I don’t know. She’s been messing with our family for years. Now to find out she’s finn’s biological mother and hayes’ grandmother? Makes me wonder what more she’s capable of.

Ridge: I know.

Brooke: I’m just worried about the strain that she’s putting on steffy and finn’s relationship.

Paris: Finn screwed up.

Zende: You think?

Paris: [Sighs] I mean, but he fully owns his mistake. He knows that sheila shouldn’t be anywhere around steffy or her family. But the fact that he’s pretty much perfect in every other way has got to count for something, right?

Zende: Oh. So he’s perfect now, huh?

Paris: Zende, no one’s perfect, but finn’s very, very close.

Zende: Closer than me?

Paris: You guys may be neck and neck.

Zende: Really?

Paris: You may be winning by just a hair.

Brooke: It’s just really unfortunate that steffy’s caught in the middle. She loves finn so much, but she can’t standthe woman who gave birth to him.

Ridge: No one can stand her. And steffy has every right to feel uneasy about it.

Brooke: Absolutely. Finn needs to show better judgment.

Ridge: Yeah.

Brooke: But she did say that the relationship is back on track.

Ridge: Well, let’s hope this latest stunt doesn’t derail their progress.

Zende: You can admit it. You’re kinda crushing on finn, aren’t you?

Paris: Oh, you mean the same way that model was crushing on you?

Zende: Touché.

Paris: Can’t blame her.

Zende: I mean, I can’t blame her, either.

Paris: Mm-hmm.

Zende: Finn’s a good-looking guy. He’s a doctor, and he surfs. I get it. Seems like everyone’s got a thing for him these days.

Paris: Not everybody.

Zende: Are you saying you don’t?

Finn: I hear you, and I respect your feelings, but we’re–

Steffy: Then let’s go! Sheila’s in good hands. She’s gonna be just fine. We have to think about our family, finn.

Finn: I am thinking about us. You and the kids always come first. But like it or not, steffy, she is my mother.

Steffy: She’s your birth mother.

Finn: And she’s alone and scared in a hospital all by herself. I told her that I would be here. I can’t just abandon her. Some people have joint pain,

[Horn honks]

Ridge: Just texted steffy. Wanna see what’s happening at the hospital.

Zende: Hospital? Somebody get hurt?

Brooke: So she says.

Ridge: Sheila.

Zende: What did she do this time?

Ridge: Went to steffy’s house again.

Paris: Again?

Brooke: She snuck onto the property and then fainted on the floor.

Ridge: At a very opportune moment.

Zende: You’re not buying it.

Brooke: No, unfortunately, finn is vulnerable to his birth mother. In fact, he’s at the hospital with her right now. Steffy just filled us in.

Paris: Well, let me guess. Steffy went over there to confront her.

Ridge: Of course she did. She doesn’t want finn to be manipulated anymore.

Zende: But isn’t there a restraining order in place?

Brooke: Carter’s working on it, but because of the family connection, it’s a little bit complicated.

Paris: Um, you know what? I-I-I actually have a thing I have to do for the foundation.

Zende: Right now?

Paris: Yeah, it’s a video chat thing. I completely forgot about it.

Ridge: Go ahead. Do your thing.

Zende: It’s gotta be tough on both of you.

Ridge: You know what’s tough, zende? Trying to explain to finn how dangerous this woman really is. We’ve tried. We’ve all tried, but he’s not listening, so…almost to the point where I don’t wanna tell him anymore. You know what? I’m not just gonna sit back and let this woman try to weasel her way back into this family. Not gonna let it happen.

Brooke: Steffy’s not gonna let it happen either.

Steffy: I’d rather not have this conversation in here, not when she can hear us.

Finn: She’s asleep, steffy. She’s had a very trying day.

Steffy: No, no, she hasn’T. This is a scam. She’s trying to exploit your feelings. That’s what she does best. Finn, you have to trust me on this. I know you are put in a terrible position right now and part of you does feel bad for her, but… don’t let her suck you in, okay? You need to walk away. The more attention you give this woman, the more you make her feel like she’s your mother, the more she’s gonna be fixated on this. You’re gonna keep feeding the monster, and you can’t do that. You need to stop right now. We need to just go and never see sheila again.

Nurse: Sorry to interrupt. Dr. Finnegan, you wanted an update on the patient in 103. I’d have called, but since you’re here, the results are in.

Finn: Okay. Thank you. I gotta go take care of that. You wanna sit out in the waiting area?

Steffy: No, I’m gonna stay here, wait till sheila wakes up.

Finn: Look, steffy, I know you think she’s pretending, but people don’t just collapse for no reason. She might have something underlying. I’m gonna be right back.

Steffy: Hey. Finn left. It’s just you and me now. You can drop the act. You are so full of it. Obviously, you were listening to everything we were saying. So why don’t you open those eyes and look at me? Because you’re gonna hear exactly what I have to say.

(Motorcycle running)

 

Brooke: Is everything okay with paris, zende?

Zende: Um, I, uh–I think so. Why?

Brooke: I just got the feeling that she might be concerned about steffy and finn’s relationship, what they’re going through.

Zende: It could be part of it. Paris lives at the house, and sheila’s existence is enough to rattle anyone.

Ridge: That’s why finn has to cut all ties with that woman, end this nightmare.

Brooke: For everyone’s safety, especially the sake of their marriage.

Zende: We were just talking about that, how good they are together. Paris is really concerned. She doesn’t want anything or anyone coming between steffy and finn.

[Elevator door dings]

Paris: Finn.

Finn: Paris, hey. What are you doing here?

Paris: I heard about what happened with sheila, and I just wanted to see how you were doing.

Finn: [Sighs] Um, I was just gonna check on her. I had to see another patient.

Paris: Oh, I’m sorry. Don’t let me stop you from doing your job.

Finn: No, no, it’s okay. Sheila’s–she’s resting, and she’s stable, as far as we know.

Paris: Stable is good.

Finn: Yeah.

Paris: It must be a relief for you, knowing that she’s most likely in the clear, out of the woods.

Finn: She’s in good hands. There’s a lot of people watching over her, but…

[Sighs] I admit, it was a little scary watching her go down like that right at the house.

Paris: Oh, my god. I can only imagine. I wish I was there to help out.

Finn: Yeah, I mean, it was the last thing I was expecting. She was standing there, and then… I think she got upset. Anyway, um, it was really nice of you to come by, and it means a lot that you took some time to reach out.

Paris: Well, that’s what I’m here for. I am assuming that steffy isn’t giving you much support.

Sheila: Enough already. You need to leave me alone and get the hell out of here.

Steffy: All right, sheila, you had your fun. It’s time to cut this out. I’m not an idiot. Your sudden collapse as finn was telling you to get out and never come back? Hmm. What a coincidence. And bravo. You were able to lower your blood pressure. I guess your nursing degree really did come in handy. Finn may have fallen for your charade, but I haven’T. I know exactly who you are, so it’s time to give it up. Give up the act and wake up. Let’s go. Wake up. Come on now. Wake up, girl. Wake up.

Sheila: You are relentless, steffy forrester, worse than your grandmother ever was. Okay, fine. Anything to get you to shut your mouth.

Steffy: [Scoffs]

Sheila: [Exhales]

[Exhales] Finn? Where’s– where’s finn?

Steffy: He’s not here.

Sheila: [Exhales, mumbles] Where’s–who are you? Who are you?

Steffy: You know who I am. You’ve been listening to us the entire time.

Sheila: Nurse, I was just…

Steffy: It’s steffy.

Sheila: Oh, steffy.

[Groans] Get water. Please, wat–some water.

Steffy: [Sighs]

Sheila: Thank you.

Steffy: There’s nothing wrong with you. Physically. I mean, this fantasy that you’re clinging to, that you’re gonna be in finn’s and hayes’s life forever, you need to drop it. It’s not gonna happen. All the deception and the lies, it ends here. Now. A lot of people think dealing with copd

Ridge: Uh-oh, steffy texted back. Let’s see.

Brooke: What? What’d she say?

Ridge: She is alone in a room with sheila.

Brooke: Really? Is that a good idea?

Ridge: Apparently she’s still “unconscious.”

Zende: This is seriously insane, to pull something like that?

Ridge: Yeah, she’s putting on a show for everybody.

Zende: I mean, if that’s the case, she’s seriously unhinged. I hope steffy’s being extra careful.

Ridge: You know, I’m not worried about steffy. Worried about your pal finn.

Brooke: She’s playing the victim. She’s trying to get under his skin.

Ridge: Then don’t let her! Come on! Finn needs to get on board. Trust your wife, and stop listening to sheila.

Paris: Steffy does have her own perspective.

Finn: Years of conflict between sheila and her family.

Paris: Yeah, I’m not trying to judge. She has legit reasoning. It makes sense why she thinks it’s a play for sympathy.

Finn: But it’d just be so difficult to pull off.

Paris: Yeah, but you also don’t want to believe that sheila could fake you out like that. Deep down, you’re worried about her health, and her well-being. And that’s okay, it’s normal. You’re her son. And it doesn’t sound like she has anyone else around that cares whether she lives or dies. It’s just you.

Finn: Yeah, who knows?

Paris: The point is, I feel you, finn. And if you need a friend, I’m here.

Finn: I appreciate that. And everything that you said. I just… [Sighs] Can’t stop thinking about sheila and steffy alone together. No matter how this plays out, I don’t see how anybody wins.

Sheila: What-what happened? What are you talking about?

Steffy: Don’t come to my home ever again. You stay away from my husband and my children.

Sheila: Your home.

[Sighs] I wanted to see my son and my grandson.

Steffy: Don’t call them that.

Sheila: But I am.

Steffy: They’re-they’re not yours. They’re not yours to claim. Finn asked you to leave. Repeatedly. But instead of respecting his wishes, you blacked out. You fell on the floor, claiming that it was some kind of emergency. It’s all to worm your way back into my family. I know what this is. It’s over for you. It’s done.

Sheila: God, you have no sympathy. Finn is my boy. Hayes is my grandson and I love them both.

Steffy: You don’t even know what that feels like.

Sheila: Oof. Ooh, ouch. Oh, that hurt, that’s right. Just, you know, kick her while she’s down. Look at me, steffy. I could’ve had a heart attacK.

Steffy: Sadly, I’m betting your cold, empty heart is gonna be just fine. Once finn figures out everything, that this was all a con job, he’s not gonna want anything to do with you ever again.

Sheila: My son wants–

Steffy: Could you stop calling him that?

Sheila: It’s true. He has affection for his mother. Is that so–

Steffy: He’s never given you any indication that he cares about you!

Sheila: Actually, he has.

Steffy: What?

Sheila: My phone. Why don’t you go–go check my texts?

Steffy: Why?

Sheila: Look up finn’s number and open it.

Steffy: You texted him?

Sheila: Yes. Is that a crime?

Steffy: I told him not to respond to you. That he shouldn’t have any communication with you.

Sheila: Well, see for yourself. It’s a heart emoji. You know what that means. That means he loves me. Like it or not, he loves his mother. I will always, always, be a part of my son’s life. There’s nothing you can do about it, steffy.

[ Dramatic music ]

Ridge: Hang on a sec. Sheila’s back?

Brooke: At your house?

Ridge: Hey, she wants to spend more time with him. What’s going on, steffy? Where is she now?

Steffy: She’s in the hospital.

Ridge: What?

Steffy: Sheila’s in the hospital. Finn’s with her. Oh my god.

Steffy: I’m terrified knowing what she’s gonna do next. What she’s planning. Like, how is she gonna try to contact you?

Finn: That’s not gonna happen.

Steffy: You swore that she would never come near you or our son. She’s never gonna be satisfied, finn. She’s not. Now that she’s held our son.

Finn: I’m not trying to hurt you, but you need to go. You said that you would leave and never come back.

Sheila: That was my intention. And then steffy burst in and she ruined my moment with my grandson. I would just like to hold him one more time.

Finn: No. No, you need to honor your word and just stay away from us. My son and I will have no part of your life. Not ever.

[ Thud ]

Finn: Whoa, whoa, hey. Sheila. Hey, sheila. Sheila! Hey. Sheila.

Nurse: I’ve been doing this a lot of years.

Finn: Sorry?

Nurse: Monitoring patients. Checking vitals. I’m pretty good at it. You’re pretty good at it too.

Finn: At what?

Nurse: Not looking over nurse’s shoulders. Letting us do our jobs. It’s why we all like working with you.

Finn: I didn’t realize that’s what I was doing, emily. I apologize.

Nurse: No need. I was teasing. Plus I understand.

Finn: You understand?

Nurse: Why you’re keeping a close eye on the patient too. She’s a relative, right?

Finn: How’d you know?

Nurse: Nurses see all, know all. I’m guessing an aunt.

Finn: No. She’s my mother.

Zende: Hmm. I don’t know. Still not sure about the waist. It’s missing something. A belt, maybe? How’s that feel?

Sakoya: I like it.

Zende: I meant the belt.

Sakoya: Maybe you should get a second opinion.

Zende: Paris, hey! How long have you been standing there?

Paris: Long enough to know that you’re in trouble. That belt, you can’t be serious with that.

Sakoya: That’s what I told him.

Paris: Yeah, you did. It’s too much. It takes away from her gorgeous waistline.

Zende: Okay, but like I was saying to sakoya, it still needs something.

Paris: What about a beaded waistline?

Zende: You mean a beaded belt?

Paris: No, beads sewn directly onto the fabric in a fun, geometric pattern? Something that really catches the eye. In a good way.

Zende: Start sewing.

Paris: Excuse me?

Zende: Your suggestion. The beaded waistline. Show me exactly what you had in mind.

Paris: Ha! Right. Yeah, right. No.

Zende: What? With your eye, your fashion sense, I can’t wait to see how it turns out. He’s always like this, isn’t he?

Sakoya: I know you’re keeping it on the dl, but you’re really lucky, having a guy like zende.

[ Laughing ]

Zende: She’s right.

Paris: How lucky I am?

Zende: It goes both ways. For instance, I’m lucky I get to work in the same building as you. Not only do I get to benefit from your amazing suggestions and on-point fashion sense, I get to do a lot of this.

Ridge: Why is sheila at the hospital?

Brooke: What happened?

Steffy: Apparently, she passed out and finn took her to the hospital.

Ridge: Finn took her to the hospital. How is that possible? He was gonna stay away from her.

Steffy: According to finn, she just showed up. She just came to our house.

Ridge: Just came to the house. I knew this was gonna happen. Because this woman– it doesn’t matter who raised finn. She thinks she’s his mother, his only mother.

Finn: I am so sorry about earlier. The things I said. I’m worried that’s what upset you and caused you to collapse. And yes, I need to honor my wife’s wishes. But I just met you. The woman that I’ve been wondering about my entire life. And if I were to lose you now? I can’t lose you.

[ Sighing ]

Sheila: Finn?

Finn: Mom? Hey. Hey.

Sheila: My son.

Finn: Hey. Yes, mom. Mom. Hey, it’s finn, yeah. Hey, I’m right here. I’m right here by your side. Smooth dark chocolate, refreshing peppermint,

Zende: Thanks. I’ll let steffy know when I see her.

Paris: Someone looking for steffy?

Zende: Yeah, but I can handle it if I can do anything to lighten the load at work.

Paris: You’re worried about steffy too.

Zende: Especially after everything you told me earlier. I mean, she and finn are newlyweds. He’s sleeping in the guest house?

Paris: That’s what she wants.

Zende: No, what she wants is sheila completely out of their lives. But she comes home unexpectedly, finds her mother-in-law from hell there holding her baby. Only to find out that finn allowed it?

Paris: He was being pressured by her dad. Sheila was waiting outside.

Zende: I know, I’m not taking sides. And finn is super cool. He’s also the best thing that’s happened to steffy in a long time. They haven’t even filed their marriage certificate yet.

Paris: Well, they were supposed to do that today, but steffy cancelled the appointment until this whole situation with sheila is resolved.

Zende: That’s why you think my cousin’s overreacting.

Paris: Look, I know that you and steffy are family. But yeah, I do think that she’s treating finn unfairly. She has to realize how lucky she is to be married to a guy like that.

Brooke: What else did finn say?

Ridge: More importantly, what did the doctors say?

Steffy: It’s too soon to know anything.

Ridge: It’s too soon to figure out if she maybe faked all this? This is classic sheila carter.

Steffy: I don’t blame him. He did the right thing. He told her to leave.

Ridge: Oh and don’t tell me, that’s when she collapsed, right? That’s convenient, isn’t it?

Brooke: That woman is a master of manipulation. She is so calculated with everything she does. Nobody is immune.

Ridge: Even her own son.

Steffy: Despite everything we told him, he is vulnerable to her. But I’m going to make sure he’s not manipulated by that monster again. I have to go.

[ Sighing ]

[ Sighing ]

Sheila: Finn. My son, my son. Is that you?

Finn: Yeah, mom, it’s me. It’s finn. I’m right here.

Sheila: Where are we?

Finn: In the hospital.

Sheila: The hospital?

Finn: You collapsed at the house. Do you remember?

Sheila: I wanted to see you and hayes. I love you both so much. But I couldn’t see you. You wouldn’t let me because of steffy. Literally felt like my heart was being broken in two. I wouldn’t be able to see you or my beautiful grandson ever again. That’s the last thing I remember before I collapsed. But you didn’t leave me. You’re here with me. You stayed by your mother’s side. Ok everyone, our mission is to provide complete,

Zende: I am sure that steffy realizes how fortunate she is sharing her life with a guy like finn.

Paris: Yeah, I hope so. Because guys like finn are few and far between.

Zende: I am standing right here. You keep talking like this, I’m gonna start thinking that you have a crush on the good doctor.

Paris: Oh please, that is steffy’s husband. I tell you one thing, if that were my husband, I would not be treating him the way steffy’s treating him right now. I mean, I get it. It’s complicated, this whole thing with sheila. But finn can’t help who his birth mother is.

Ridge: Maybe we should have gone with steffy to the hospital.

Brooke: You’re worried what she might do when she sees sheila.

Ridge: No, I know exactly what she’s gonna do when she sees her. I’m worried about what I’m gonna do when I’m in a room with that woman.

Brooke: I think that’s true for all of us.

Ridge: She’s tormented my family for so long. And now she’s going after my daughter. And her marriage. And it’s not working is it? And when things don’t work for her, she gets desperate and when she gets desperate–

Brooke: Honey, honey. I know you’re concerned. I am too. But as clever as sheila is, she is in the hospital. There’s nothing that she can do. They’re gonna do a bunch of tests on her and they’re gonna find out there’s nothing wrong with her. Nothing physically.

Ridge: But she always finds a way. She always finds a way to cause trouble. She wants to hurt my daughter now. Am I asking too much? Really, all I want is for that woman to rot in hell because of everything that she’s done to the people I love. Too much to ask, really?

Finn: I need to get your doctor. Let them know you’re conscious again.

Sheila: I don’t want you to leave me. Please don’t leave me.

Finn: I’m gonna be right back. You need to rest. Save your energy. Just rest. You can trust me. I’ll be right back.

Nurse: I was just coming in. How is she?

Finn: She’s awake. Came to a few moments ago. Where’s dr. Griffith?

Nurse: I’ll go page her.

Finn: Okay.

Steffy: Finn!

Finn: Hey. Honey, you didn’t need to come. I know how you feel about sheila.

Steffy: I had to be here, for your sake.

Finn: Well, you don’t have to worry. She regained consciousness. Hopefully, she’s gonna be okay.

Steffy: What do you mean she’s gonna be okay? There was nothing wrong with her in the first place. Doing it yourself

Brooke: I feel the same way you do. Sheila is depraved and she is vile. And this latest stunt, it just proves the lengths she’ll go to to be in finn’s life.

Ridge: Yes, finn’s life. But not just finn’s life. Hayes’s life. She’s around, she’s gonna influence that little boy. Maybe not now because he’s a baby. But later on, she– we just gotta take care of this. We gotta deal with it.

Brooke: I thought we did deal with it. Last time she turned up in la. And look, she’s back. And in a way none of us ever anticipated, as finn’s birth mother? And steffy’s mother-in-law? I mean, your daughter is more tied to her now than she ever was before.

Ridge: I know all that. This woman, she shows up and she causes trouble, she always causes trouble. And yes, she wants a relationship with finn, and hayes and all of us, the forresters. That’s what she wants. She’s obsessed with this family. I’m not gonna let steffy deal with this on her own. She’s strong and she’s tough, but sheila, she’s whacked. And it’s gonna take all of us to take care of it. We have to deal with this once and for all.

Finn: I can understand why you might jump to that conclusion but she–

Steffy: Oh come on, this is clearly just an act. You’re telling me she just collapsed out of nowhere? Really?

Finn: Steffy, you weren’t there. You didn’t see what I saw.

Steffy: Okay, tell me exactly that you saw. I want to know everything.

Finn: Okay, this is just gonna have to wait. Okay? Sheila, she just regained consciousness, her doctor hasn’t even seen her yet.

Steffy: Okay, well I wanna see her.

Finn: Okay, just– she’s a little out of it. Okay, please don’t do or say anything that might upset her.

Finn: She may have fallen asleep.

Steffy: She can fake that too. Seems fine to me.

Finn: She collapsed. It was sudden.

Steffy: She did that to scare you. To make you worried. It’s just a ploy.

Finn: I’m a doctor, steffy. You may think sheila’s collapse was all for show–

Steffy: But you don’t? Really?

Finn: We need to wait for the test results.

Steffy: Okay, I can’t wait. Because then we’ll all find out it’s just an act, sheila.

Finn: Come on, steffy.

Steffy: You come on! She’s manipulating you. Don’t you see that? My god. I love you. I really do and I know you’re in a really tough position right now. She gave birth to you and you’re still trying to let go of the fact that she brought you into this world, but she’s done all of these terrible, criminal things. She is evil. She lies and manipulates. She does it over and over and she’s doing it right now. You need to just– you need to let go. You need to walk away. It is obvious. Just walk away from this, please. Not just for me and the kids. But you need to do it for yourself. Leave and never come back. It’s that easy.

Sheila: Damn you, steffy. Don’t listen to her, finn. Don’t leave me. Don’t leave your mother.

[ Dramatic music ]

Finn: Yeah, she’s unconscious, but she’s breathing. Her pulse is normal. Okay, please hurry. Thank you, thank you very much. Okay, I’m gonna unlock the front door. Hang in there, mom, okay? Help is on the way.

Steffy: Sheila’s not gonna be a problem for finn and me.

Ridge: No, she won’T. She won’t be around you, or your kids, or finn, ever again. We’re working on it.

Brooke: Carter filed the restraining order?

Ridge: Yes, it’s with the judge now.

Brooke: And security’s been staffed at your house?

Steffy: Yes.

Ridge: Okay. We can have all the security, all the restraining orders in the world, but we all need to be on the same page, all of us. Do you understand?

Steffy: I understand that, and we are. Finn doesn’t want sheila around. He understands how dangerous she is.

Shauna: It’s very beautiful, the way you are standing by eric.

Quinn: Of course. He’s my husband.

Shauna: But, you need to be honest with yourself. You’ve had a very sexual, passionate relationship with carter, and the way you said he made you feel–

Quinn: Well, eric and i have faced challenges before, and we’ve gotten through them. We’ll get through them again.

Shauna: Oh come on, quinn. This is different. I know you want to be strong, but your husband may never be able to make love to you again. Can you really live without that, and make such a huge sacrifice?

Quinn: Yes. My love and commitment to my husband comes first. If I have to give up that part of myself, I will. I’ll do it for eric.

Quinn: There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for eric. I love him.

Eric: And I love you too, quinn.

Quinn: Eric? I, I, I didn’t know you were home.

Eric: My meeting ended quickly.

Shauna: Quinn and I, we were just talking about how happy she is to be back home with you again.

Quinn: It’s true. Eric, I mean, no matter what we’ve been through and what we may go through, you should never doubt my love for you.

Eric: I don’T. Your love and support mean the world to me.

Brooke: I still can’t believe that sheila came to your house to see finn. I mean, I can, but… and jack was the one who told her where you lived?

Steffy: Mm-hm.

Brooke: And you walked in…

Steffy: I walked in on her holding hayes.

Brooke: Oh my god. Steffy, I am sorry.

Ridge: Yeah, maybe jack thought giving sheila what she wanted would make her go away. It’s foolish.

Brooke: I can’t believe that finn would even go along with this.

Steffy: Finn was wrong, and he knows that. But I am convinced he won’t be seeing sheila ever again.

[ Ambulance siren ]

[ Knocking ]

Finn: Right, this way. Okay, thank god you’re here. I’m dr. Finnegan. Uh, we were just talking, and she collapsed. Just completely unconscious.

[ Radio chatter ] Strong pulse, and no sign of head trauma.

Paramedic: Okay, thank you, doctor. I’ll take it from here. What’s your relationship with the patient?

Finn: She’s my mother. Okay, we gotta hurry. We need to get her to the hospital.

Paramedic: Of course.

Frank is a fan of fast.

He’s a fast talker.

Shauna: I can’t tell you how happy it makes me, to see you both back together again.

Eric: I’m a very happy man.

Shauna: Well, it makes this girl hopeful that real love does exist, and it’s not fragile. Challenges and obstacles may come, real pain may come, but you can push through it and get to the other side. I know you both have had a lot thrown at you, but to find your way back together, it proves that you guys can do anything.

Eric: I truly hope so.

Quinn: There’s nothing we can’t overcome.

Shauna: Well, let me get out of here. Eric, it was so great seeing you.

Eric: My pleasure, as always, shauna. It’s good to see you.

Shauna: Thank you. You too.

Eric: It’s good that she came to see you. She’s a good friend for you.

Quinn: Yeah. Hey. I don’t ever want there to be secrets between us anymore. I, I shared with shauna what’s going on with you. She’s my oldest friend, and I really needed somebody to talk to, and she loves you. I mean, she has been a champion for us, from the very beginning, and just please, don’t be mad at me.

Ridge: I imagine that seeing sheila and hayes together, that that was awful for you, but look at the bright side. Even with all this, you and finn worked it out.

Steffy: Yeah, I’m happy about it. Relieved, actually.

Brooke: You were concerned, for the two of you?

Steffy: Oh, absolutely. But, when I saw sheila, holding my son in that moment, all I cared about was protecting him.

Ridge: Even from finn?

Steffy: Yeah.

Ridge: Well, that makes sense to me. There’s nothing to be ashamed of. You do whatever you can to protect your family, right?

Steffy: Mm-hm.

Brooke: Your father’s right.

Steffy: Yeah.

Ridge: Her father’s always right.

Steffy: Finn knows how dangerous sheila is, and the lengths she’ll go to get what she wants. I just hate that he’s in this position.

Ridge: I hate that too.

Brooke: Yeah.

Steffy: He’s always wondered about his birth mother, and then he finally meets her and sees that she’s a sociopath.

Brooke: I can’t imagine what he’s going through, but the important thing is that he knows he can’t be in her life.

Ridge: ‘Cause he does know that, right? That’s what I was struggling with, a little bit. He had all the information. We told him about sheila, everything, what he did to you, to your mom, to you, and I think he listened. He probably listened, but he didn’t live it. Didn’t live the darkness, he didn’t live that danger. He, uh, just heard about it. So, I gotta think that, even with all that, he’s gonna have a relationship with his mother.

Dr. Griffith: Dr. Finnegan!

Finn: Dr. Griffith.

Dr. Griffith: What happened?

Finn: We were talking, she just collapsed. Pulse is normal.

Paramedic: 90 bpm.

Dr. Griffith: Her heartbeat?

Paramedic: Steady, no obstructions.

Dr. Griffith: Any drugs or alcohol?

Finn: No. Uh, not to my knowledge. It could be neurological or metabolic.

Dr. Griffith: Any signs of head trauma?

Paramedic: No.

Dr. Griffith: Any verbal, tactile, or noxious stimulus?

Finn: There’s been none.

Dr. Griffith: Get her in room two, right away. We’ll take care of her.

Finn: Thank you. Mom, I’m right here, okay? I’m gonna be right by your side.

[ Upbeat music ]

Quinn: Eric. I’m sorry for opening up to shauna, about all of this. She’s my oldest friend.

Eric: You needed someone to talk to, I understand. You told me.

Quinn: I just don’t want you to be mad at me.

Eric: Mad at you?

Quinn: Yeah.

Eric: No. No, how could I be mad at you? If anybody should be apologizing, it’s me.

Quinn: Oh, eric, no–

Eric: No, no, I should have, I should have been truthful to you about all of this months ago.

Quinn: You don’t have anything to apologize for.

Eric: But, I do. I do, I was, I was embarrassed, I was ashamed and I, I, I pushed you away.

Quinn: I’m the one who broke our vows.

Eric: Because I let you believe that I was rejecting you, I let you believe that I was no longer interested in being intimate with you. I’m sorry.

Quinn: Hey, hey, look at me. I love you. We have gotten through every obstacle we’ve faced before. We’re gonna do it again.

Ridge: Steffy, look, I don’t, I don’t wanna upset you. I don’T. I also don’t want you to doubt your husband. I get it, I get it. You don’t want me to be unrealistic.

Ridge: No, I don’t know what I want, no, I, I do know what I want. I want you to be happy, because you have husband who’s great. He’s just got a few things he’s gotta work out. He’s got an amazing family.

Brooke: I think what your father is trying to say is that finn discovering his birth mother, that’s huge. There has to be some kind of emotional connection on some level.

Ridge: Not on some level, on every level. I mean, he, he may not even be aware of all of it, at this point.

Steffy: But dad, finn and I already had that conversation, it’s fine.

Ridge: Yeah. And you had that same conversation before all that. No, I’m sorry, and–

[ Steffy sighing ] You know I love you? And I, I… finn told you, that you and the kids come first, right? You remember that?

Steffy: Mm-hm.

Ridge: Still, that woman showed up at your house. How?

Steffy: Finn was vulnerable to her once. And now, that he’s seen her desperation, the way that she manipulates, finn will not fall for that, ever again.

Finn: This can’t continue, sheila.

Sheila: Please call me “mom”.

Finn: I can’T. I’m not trying to hurt you, but you need to go. You need to honor your word, and you need to stay away from us. My son and i will have no part of your life. Not ever.

Dr. Griffith: Exactly what happened, dr. Finnegan?

Finn: We’re talking, things got pretty heated, and she started to get upset. And she, she collapsed, she passed out. At first, I was worried she was having a heart attack.

Dr. Griffith: Uh-huh. Ekg shows no sign of cardiac arrest.

[ Machine beeping ] How do you know this woman, dr. Finnegan?

Finn: She’s my mother.

Dr. Griffith: Your mother? But, I thought–

Finn: Oh, sorry, she’s, uh, she’s my birth mother. I just met her. It’s, it’s complicated. Really complicated, actually. But, I… I finally found her. And I can’t lose her. Not like this. If you think all pads are exactly the same,…

[ Relaxing acoustic music ]

Eric: Quinn, it’s just I’ve been so unfair to you. I, I should have told you the truth about all of this before asking you to come back, before tearing up the divorce papers.

Quinn: Carter, I love you.

Carter: I love you too.

Quinn: Do you really think my answer would have changed? I’m committed and devoted to you.

Eric: But, what if I can’t? I can’t? I’ve been to doctors and psychiatrists and nothing seems to be working. I was hoping that this opening up to you, would be the breakthrough that I’ve been hoping for, but it’s just not happening. I’M… I’m letting you down.

Quinn: No, you’re not. You’re not letting me down. Come on, it’s exactly what shauna said, this is who we are. We come up against obstacles and we face them. Together.

Eric: But I can’t, I can’T. And how can I ask, how can I ask you to bury that part of you? You’re, you’re a beautiful, vibrant, sensual woman. You’re a passionate woman.

Quinn: I get it, but you have to still believe that you could fulfill me. You’ve done it before, you will do it again.

Eric: I can’t make love to you.

Quinn: Stop, okay? Stop, stop it. Stop.

Ridge: Steffy, I’m sorry. You know, the last thing I want is to upset you.

Steffy: You didn’t upset me. I understand why you’re concerned. I’m concerned too, but not about finn. I’m not gonna let sheila drive a wedge between us.

[ Phone ringing ] Hey, baby.

Finn: Hey, um, uh, I’m at the hospital.

Steffy: Oh, oh did you have to go in? Did donna bring the kids home? Do I have to go home, and relieve amelia? Is everything okay?

Finn: Uh, no, I didn’t get called in.

Steffy: Oh. What’s going on? Is something wrong?

Finn: Uh, something happened. There was an emergency.

Steffy: With one of your patients?

Finn: Um, my mother.

Steffy: Your mother, with li? What happened, what’s wrong?

Finn: Oh no, not her. She’s fine, she’s fine. Um… it’s sheila.

Steffy: Sheila. What happened?

Finn: Uh, we’re not sure. She, uh, we’re monitoring her, but she collapsed and she’s been unconscious ever since.

Steffy: How did you find this out?

Finn: Uh, I was with her when she collapsed.

Steffy: You were with her?

Finn: At the house.

Steffy: Our house?

Finn: Sheila showed up. I, I was surprised, but I told her that she could no longer come there, and I made it very clear that I never wanted to see her again. She got really upset and collapsed. I know how you feel about her, and if I’m being honest, I’m just really worried.

Steffy: Finn.

Finn: I know you don’t want to hear this, but she’s my mother, and I don’t want to lose her.

Sheila: He doesn’t want to lose me. You never will, my baby boy, no one will keep us apart. Not even you, steffy.

[ Somber music ]

[ Sighing ]

Finn: Steffy forrester, will you be my wife?

Steffy: Yes!

Finn: I give you this ring as a sign of my love and commitment to you.

Finn: Steffy, can we talk?

Steffy: Yeah, hi. Sure.

Finn: Sorry, I didn’t mean to startle you. I let myself in.

Steffy: No, it’S… it’s okay. I was just thinking.

Finn: Yeah, I’ve been thinking a lot too. I want you to know how truly sorry I am. I should never allowed sheila anywhere near our son.

[ Dramatic music ]

[ Tapping of phone ]

Sheila: At least it was until steffy ruined it.

Ridge: I was hoping you’d be here.

Eric: You were? Why? Is this gonna turn into some kind of an intervention? Is that what this is?

Brooke: Eric, we can’t help being concerned.

Eric: Stop. Stop looking out for me. Don’t question my choices. Or my marriage. There’s more to quinn and me than you can see. There’s more going on with us than you can possibly understand.

Quinn: Thanks for meeting me here. I really didn’t want to get into this at the office.

Shauna: I completely understand. This will give us a chance to talk more privately. It’s really true? Eric?

Quinn: Unfortunately.

Shauna: Well, these things happen from time to time. If a man is under a lot of stress, or has performance anxiety. Do you remember that valet guy I was dating?

Quinn: Which one? Look, I wish it were that simple, I really do. I mean, anxiety, I would know how to handle that. But this? What am I supposed to do, shauna? My husband may never be able to make love to me again.

Shauna: It must’ve been quite a shock when eric told you.

Quinn: Yeah. I mean, he’s always been so virile, you know? It explains a lot, though.

Shauna: Explains?

Quinn: Why he was pulling away from me. Why he was being so distant. It wasn’t just because he was disappointed in me. He was covering up for this problem.

Shauna: If he would’ve told you back then…

Quinn: I know, and look, I’m not trying to make excuses, but one of the reasons that I ended up in carter’s arms is because he was being so cold to me.

Shauna: You’re thinking about that, aren’t you?

Quinn: Thinking about what?

Shauna: About what you gave up to be back with eric. Quinn, you confided in me what it was like to be with carter. How unbelievable it all was. And now, finding out that connection with eric may never be possible, I know what I would be thinking if I were you.

Steffy: You don’t have to keep apologizing.

Finn: But I will. Until I get through to you. Until you understand I know what I did was wrong. Not sheila showing up, but that I allowed it.

Steffy: It felt like a huge betrayal, finn.

Finn: Yeah, but I’m not gonna let it change what we have. You hear me, steffy? I’m not gonna let sheila or anyone come between us.

Steffy: You will never be part of my family. Do you hear that? Do you hear that? I never want to see your face again.

Sheila: Steffy’s the problem. She’s the one coming between me and my son. There are times, I wonder…

Eric: I know you mean well, but my marriage is not your business. It’s not open to discussion or critique. I’m gonna go home to my wife.

Shauna: Quinn, be honest. After everything you told me about your time with carter, it was to be crossing your mind.

Quinn: Yes, I am thinking about carter. I mean, honestly, I… I love him too. I do. Everything about him.

Shauna: And if your husband can’t give you what you need?

Quinn: Don’T. Please, shauna. Don’T.

Shauna: You’re completely justified in feeling the way you do. Especially with this new development. It’s okay to admit that you miss that part of your life! And that you miss being with carter.

Steffy: I didn’t want sheila to come between us either. And she wouldn’t be if you kept your promise and you told her to stay away.

Finn: I know, but my dad was convinced that all we needed to do was give her one visit, let her see hayes, hold him, and she’d be gone. Now, look, I’m not blaming my dad, but he was adamant. And he… I’ve always trusted his judgment.

Steffy: You should’ve trusted my judgment. I know what sheila’s capable of. He doesn’T. He has no idea.

Finn: Even though he was trying to help, yeah, he’s obviously made things much worse. No, you’re right. I’ve made things much worse. I’m the one who betrayed your trust. But I want to earn it back.

Steffy: Don’t think I don’t want that too.

[ Sighing ] It’s just difficult.

Finn: And it’s even more difficult when we’re apart. I was miserable last night. And it felt so wrong to sleep alone. I don’t want that to be how we deal with our problems. Look, this is a marriage, and when things get rough, we’ve got to fight even harder to stay united. Look, I cannot be away from you any longer.

Sheila: Grown. Cutie. He’s so beautiful. I’m your grandma, hayes. I have been dying to meet you. I have. It felt so good holding you in my arms. My grandson. A forrester.

[ Giggling ] What do you think of that, stephanie? You looking up from hell right now even more tormented? Knowing that your namesake gave birth to my grandson. My grandson! You tried and you tried to get rid of me. And now, I am a permanent fixture in the forrester family. And you know what? I’m going to embrace that. I’m not going anywhere. Finn is my son. He and hayes deserve to be a part of my life. And they would be… if it weren’t for steffy. Front loader odor.

Brooke: I just don’t get it.

Ridge: Oh, I don’t get it either.

Brooke: How many times– how many different ways can quinn show that she can’t be trusted?

Ridge: No matter what, he’s going to keep taking her back.

Brooke: And he’s not even happy about it. He keeps blaming himself for her cheating.

Ridge: It’s ridiculous! Quinn and carter had an affair, nothing to do with my dad.

Quinn: I do miss him.

Shauna: I know.

Quinn: I miss carter a lot.

Shauna: I know you do, I don’t blame you. Especially now that eric can’T…

Quinn: You know, I try to be encouraging, I told him maybe there are specialists he doesn’t know of, or therapies that he’s never even heard of yet.

Shauna: I’m assuming he’s already tried.

Quinn: I just– maybe I have to accept the fact that my husband may never be able to perform again. But shauna, I don’t care, because it’s what I signed up for. We made vows, “for better or for worse,” right? I mean, it– isn’t that what life is all about? Making sacrifices for the ones you love the most?

Shauna: And you’re prepared to give up that part of your life entirely?

Quinn: If that’s what I have to do for eric, I will. I love him that much.

Finn: My love for you is forever, steffy.

Steffy: That’s how I feel, too.

Finn: Good, we can get through this. And we will. Alright? I’m not gonna let my birth mother affect us. We’ve got to move forward. Sheila is gone. But I’m not. I’m here. I’m always gonna be here. For you.

Steffy: I’m here for you, too.

Finn: I just– I can’t believe I let you down.

Steffy: And I’ve let you down too. I said I didn’t want to go to the courthouse. But, I didn’t want you to misunderstand, I just wasn’T… I couldn’t sign the marriage certificate with everything else going on.

Finn: I don’t care about the courthouse. Or the marriage certificate. Or the fact that there’s no ac in the guest house.

Steffy: Oh, is that the real reason you’re coming back here?

Finn: I mean, could we at least put in a window unit?

[ Giggling ] There’s that beautiful smile. The way it lights up your eyes, and those gorgeous lips.

Steffy: Do you really think that sheila’s going to leave us alone?

Finn: I do. And even if she doesn’t, I’m gonna have nothing to do with her. My commitment’s to you. To our family, which doesn’t include sheila. We won’t let her come between us.

Steffy: We won’T.

Finn: Does that mean I can come back from exile?

Steffy: I guess you can come back in the air conditioned house.

[ Giggling ]

Finn: Good. We can celebrate.

Steffy: Well, we’re gonna have to celebrate a little bit later because I have to go into the office right now.

Finn: Oh no.

Steffy: I know, I know. But, I’ll make it up to you. Tonight. Thanks for being you.

Finn: Right back at ya.

Steffy: I love you.

[ Giggling ]

Sheila: Finn.

Finn: What are you doing here?

Sheila: Oh, please don’t be upset. I just had to see my son again. Ok everyone, our mission is to provide complete,

Shauna: I respect you for dedicating yourself to you marriage and the way you adore eric, I mean, how could you not. He’s the sweetest man, so kind. But you just ended a very sexually charged relationship with carter. So, how do you go from that, to what? Complete celibacy?

Quinn: I have to. I want to be true to eric. And I will. 100% committed. Look. I want to have a strong and healthy marriage. If that means that I have to give up passion, excitement, sensuality, then so be it. I would do anything for eric. Anything.

Steffy: Hello.

Brooke: Hello.

Steffy: Hi.

Ridge: Hi. I’m liking this mood you’re in. What’s going on?

Steffy: Let’s just say everything’s back on track.

Ridge: With you and finn.

Steffy: Yeah. He understands the severity of the situation.

Brooke: You mean sheila.

Steffy: Mm-hm. He gets it now. She’s not gonna be a problem for us. Not ever again.

Finn: You can’t come in here.

Sheila: It’s okay. I waited until steffy was gone. I didn’t want to, you know, upset her or cause anymore problems.

Finn: You are causing problems just by being here.

Sheila: She doesn’t need to know. I’m not gonna stay long. I couldn’t help myself. I can’t stop thinking about you, and hayes. My handsome son. This adorable child. I’d love to hold him one more time.

Finn: You know I can’t allow that. Not after how steffy reacted. You can’t see hayes, and you can’t come here anymore.

Sheila: But I’m your mother.

Finn: You’re my birth mother. And I can’t have you in my life. I’m not gonna betray steffy again. This… this can’t continue, sheila.

Sheila: No, “mom.” Please just call me mom.

Finn: I can’T. I can’T. And… I am not trying to hurt you, but you need to go. You said that you would leave and you would never come back.

Sheila: That was my intention. Then, steffy bursted in, and she ruined my moment with my grandson. And I just want to hold him one more time.

Finn: No! You need to honor your word and you need to stay away from us. My son and I will have no part of your life, sheila. Not ever. Whoa, whoa, whoa. Hey! Sheila, hey! Sheila! Sheila! Hey! Sheila. Sheila. Hi, hello? Yeah, I need an ambulance. In malibu. 4185 bluffside road. Yeah, she has a pulse but she’s unconscious… female, late 50s… her name is sheila carter… she’s um…she’s my mother. She’s my mom… this is dr. John finnegan, I can start chest compressions if necessary.

[ Dramatic music ]

Ridge: So, um… how is my daughter, really?

Steffy: Honestly? Not great.

Ridge: That’s what I figured. That’s why I keep checking on ya. Donna called. She said she’s picking up the kids for the day. So that’s good, right, helpful. I just can’t believe– I can’t believe that finn would let sheila in this house.

Steffy: Yeah, that makes two of us.

Ridge: Sorry, I keep bringing it up.

Steffy: Honestly, I’m really worried about my relationship with finn.

Paris: I’m so sorry.

Finn: Yeah. Me, too.

Paris: I feel awful that you’re going through such a terrible time.

Finn: Well, I appreciate your support.

Paris: I can’t believe steffy cancelled going to the courthouse. I mean, doesn’t she want to make your marriage official?

Carter: I hope I didn’t make you feel uncomfortable or put you on the spot.

Quinn: By telling me that you miss me? No way.

Carter: Good. When we’re alone, I have a hard time hiding my feelings. You know, the ones I’m not supposed to have.

Quinn: I know those feelings well.

Carter: We were so close to making a life together. And that changed when eric wanted you back. I miss you, quinn. I won’t deny it. But I am happy for you. I can’t imagine what it feels like to be back in your husband’s arms.

Eric: I have… I have erectile dysfunction. I can’t, I can’T… I can’t make love to you.

Carter: Quinn? Is everything okay?

Ridge: You’re worried about your relationship? I mean, it’s more than that. You’re married.

Steffy: Technically, we’re not.

Ridge: What do you mean?

Steffy: We’re not officially married, dad.

Ridge: What, what are you talking about?

Steffy: We were supposed to go to the courthouse to file our marriage certificate, but… I couldn’t do it.

Finn: I–I’m sorry.

Paris: For what?

Finn: Dumping all my problems on you, and doing it here in the guest house, where there’s no air conditioning.

Paris: Okay, first of all, I can handle a little bit of heat. And secondly, you have absolutely nothing to be sorry about. I care about you and steffy. And if there’s anything I can do to help either of you– I’m happy to do anything you need.

Finn: You are a good friend.

Paris: Well, as a friend, could I have an opinion about this?

Finn: Of course. But I think I know what it is. I should never have let sheila in the house, let alone anywhere near hayes.

Paris: No. I think steffy is overreacting.

Carter: Is everything okay?

Quinn: Yeah. Sure.

Carter: Okay, I’m sensing like there’s something off. Is there some kind of trouble between you and eric? An adjustment period, maybe? He’s having a difficult time falling back into old patterns. It’s understandable. You know, given what happened between us. Give it time. He’s kind and forgiving. And he can be a little gruff, but deep down he’s just a, he’s just a big ‘ol teddy bear.

Quinn: Right.

Carter: I get the feeling like I didn’t help you, at all. What’S… what’s going on? Is there something you want to talk about?

[ Knocking on door]

Shauna: Oh. Uh… I was looking for flo. Am I interrupting something?

Quinn: Not at all.

Shauna: Okay. So why are you two behind closed doors? You try to stay ahead of the mess

Steffy: Things were so good between finn and me. Well, until sheila showed up.

Ridge: I’d never seen you that happy.

Steffy: It’s just hard to wrap my head around it. Everything was so wonderful and then my worst nightmare walks into the door.

Ridge: Well eventually, that nightmare’s gonna walk out the door. She’ll go back to her crazy, twisted life without hayes. ‘Cause he’s staying here. He’s gonna be raised by us. He’s going to be just like us and that’s scary enough, I think.

Steffy: I just want my kids to have every chance in life and not worry about sheila.

Ridge: I understand.

Steffy: It’s just wild to me, like how quickly things change. Like, one minute, I’m coming home. I’m excited to see my husband. I’m gonna surprising him and then the next, he’s staying in the guesthouse. Now today, I don’t know if I want to make our marriage official. Not yet. I can’t do it.

Paris: Look, I’m not bashing steffy. I would never do that. But, you’ll be out of here in no time once she starts thinking clearly again.

Finn: Hm, I don’t know about that. She said she couldn’t even look at me.

Paris: In the moment. All right, imagine the shock. She’s walks into her living room seeing sheila holding her baby in her arms.

Finn: You should have seen her face. It was… I mean, first shock and then, just… betrayal.

Paris: You were caught in the middle. Sheila might be the devil to everyone else, but she is your birth mother. You wouldn’t be human if you didn’t feel some kind of conflict.

Finn: Yeah, but there’s no question where my loyalties lie. It’s with my wife. I just… I let my dad… I don’t know, get into my head and I allowed something I never should have. I mean, what if that look of horror is always in steffy’s eyes whenever she looks at me?

Shauna: Did I walk in on a private moment?

Quinn: No.

Shauna: It’s just, it’s really odd after everything that’s happened– what you almost lost– that the two of you would be behind closed doors together, where anyone could easily misinterpret.

Quinn: For crying out loud, shauna. What are you? The door police? Carter and I both work in the same building. I mean, we just ended up in the same office.

Shauna: Okay. Just curious. Because you told me that you and eric were back together.

Quinn: Yes, we are. And I was telling carter how happy I am about that.

Carter: I’m delighted for them. And I mean it. I’m glad that you’re happy, quinn. You deserve no less.

Quinn: Thank you.

Carter: Now, I have some calls to make. Shauna.

Shauna: Carter. Well, that exchange was very weird.

Quinn: That’s just because you’re a naturally suspicious human being.

Shauna: Only with you.

Quinn: Gee. I’m touched.

Shauna: Oh, quinn, come on. I know you. I can tell that something’s weighing so heavily on you. What is going on? Tell me.

I may have moderate to

severe rheumatoid arthritis.

Steffy: I feel terrible about finn staying in the guest house. Maybe it isn’t fair. And I have to think about that as a possibility. I mean, he’s been there for me through some really difficult, challenging situations. And here I am just… doing the opposite, I’m telling him to leave.

Ridge: I think you’re being very fair. You need some room.

[ Sighing ] You’re meant to think. You’re conflicted. I mean, we all know that you love finn.

Steffy: I do.

Ridge: Bottom line is sheila. She– she’s a bad person. She wants to destroy anything to do with forrester. So we got to keep our guard up, especially with the kids.

Steffy: I get that. And finn didn’t ask for this. He wasn’t looking for his birth mother.

Ridge: No. But she found him. We have to be concerned.

Paris: That look in steffy’s eyes wasn’t for you. Come on, finn, you know she loves you. It doesn’t just disappear overnight.

Finn: It’s– it just kills me that I betrayed her trust. I mean, why did I not just kick sheila out immediately?

Paris: Because you’re human. Steffy has to try to understand that. She has to bend a little to try to understand your position. Sheila is your biological mother. And, and someone that you’ve wondered about your whole life and bam, she’s here. So of course, you’re drawn to her. Who wouldn’t be?

Finn: And I’d be fine if anyone was my birth mother but sheila.

Steffy: Yeah, but you don’t get to choose that.

Finn: True.

Paris: Steffy and you met way before my time in L.A., But I’ve heard enough stories to know that you’ve supported her through some really challenging times. Maybe it’s time she does the same for you. You two should be together, working through this. It’s not right of her to punish you. Have you staying here? You don’t deserve that.

Carter: We’re restocking already? Those bracelets are flying off the shelves. Yeah, yeah, yeah, quinn’ll be glad to hear that. Yeah, I’ll have her give you a call. Okay. All right, bye.

Shauna: I seem to remember us promising no more secrets. What is wrong, quinn? What is going on? Is it eric? Aren’t you happy to be back together?

Quinn: Of course I am. All I ever wanted was my husband. That’s how carter and I began. We were commiserating with each other over our broken relationships. I lost faith that eric would ever want me back. That’s, that’s why we had an affair. I hurt eric so much, but he found it in his heart to forgive me. He even ripped up the divorce papers.

[ Sighing ] That just shows you what a remarkable man he is.

Shauna: I totally agree. And I know firsthand how much eric loves you and how devoted he is. He always talked about what you brought to his life that he felt was missing: Excitement and vibrancy. Passion. Okay, I saw that look. Something is wrong. Quinn, I know you guys had your issues in the bedroom at one point. But that doesn’t seem to be the case any longer? Oh, quinn. He still doesn’t want to be with you?

Quinn: No… of course not. Eric wants me. He does but… but he can’T.

Shauna: Can’t what? What are you trying to say? (Cat 1) friskies world!

Ridge: I like finn. You– you do know that, right?

Steffy: Of course I do.

Ridge: Okay. I think he’s a good life partner for you. He’s good, he’s a good man and he loves you.

Steffy: I know.

Ridge: So I’m not standing here, attacking him… he’s in a tough spot. But so are you and I’m not sure that you’re realizing what this whole sheila thing is actually doing to you.

Steffy: No, I’m really freaked out dad, I am. I adore finn and I love our family. Our little baby boy. I’ve always had this vision for our future and it never included sheila! Like, I don’t– I don’t care if she’s his biological mother, but she’s not welcome here or anywhere near our family. And I don’t want–

Ridge: No, she’s not– shh. She’s not.

[ Sighing ] And finn’s gonna have to realize that. He’s gonna have to respect that. ‘Cause forgiving sheila… we can’t do that, not after everything she’s done to our family. But hey, you and finn, you got to work it out. You got to be stronger than ever.

Steffy: Yeah, I believe that. I do. I’m not gonna let anything come between us.

Ridge: Come here.

Paris: You are in an impossible position. I mean, not only was your bio-mom begging you for a moment, but your dad was pressuring you too.

Finn: Yeah, it was pretty intense. And I caved.

Paris: You thought that that would get sheila out of your lives for good.

Finn: Yeah, I did.

Paris: I mean, even if you did invite her in because you wanted to see your mother for one last time, who can blame you?

Finn: Yeah. Thanks for all the support, paris. I mean, I really appreciate it.

Paris: I’m just really impressed by you. You’re a good person. A healer. A devoted dad, not only to hayes, but to kelly. And you treat steffy like a queen. I find it hard to believe she didn’t race down to the courthouse to make the marriage official. I mean, she has to realize that she’s so lucky to be married to such an incredible guy.

Carter: I had to do that one last time.

Quinn: I’m so glad you did.

I’m not sure I should be talking about this.

Shauna: Your marriage? Your relationship to eric? Quinn, I’m your best friend. Who else are you gonna talk to about it? I can see you’re struggling with something. Is this about carter? I saw the way you two were looking at each other when I walked in and how intense it was. And you’ve confided in me what an incredible lover he is.

Quinn: Please. Don’t, don’t remind me.

Shauna: Honey? Talk to me?

Quinn: If I don’t talk to someone, I’m gonna explode.

Shauna: I’m right here.

Quinn: You know how much it meant to me to be back home with eric. I wanted to make it a romantic evening. You know, to– to show him that I love him. That I never stopped.

Shauna: Go on.

Quinn: I put on some sexy lingerie, and I went downstairs to the living room, but I found eric asleep on the couch. And I was disappointed at first, I was, but then I realized it had been a long day, we’d had a couple of martinis… I didn’t think anything of it and then, and then the next morning, he told me that he just… that he can’t keep this from me any longer.

Shauna: Keep what from you?

Quinn: Eric does want me. He desires me. He wants to be my husband in every way, but he can’t– he isn’t able to–

Shauna: Oh. Oh. Oh, quinn… you don’t mean…?

Quinn: My husband can’t get aroused anymore. Eric has E.D.. he can’t make love to me. He may never be able to make love to me ever again.

[ Seagulls cawing ]

Steffy: Could you come to the house? I need to see you.

[ Fan whirling ]

[ Phone dinging ]

[ Phone dinging ]

Paris: Hey.

Finn: Hey. Off to work?

Paris: Yeah. You?

Finn: No, um, day off. Which is good.

Paris: Rough night.

Finn: Yeah. The worst. I just… I hate being away from steffy, and it does not help there’s no air conditioning in here.

Paris: I mean, she’s up. You should go see her.

Finn: I’m on my way. She wants to talk before we go the courthouse. We have an appointment to file our marriage certificates. I’m hoping that’ll get us back on track.

Paris: Yeah, me, too.

Finn: Thanks.

Paris: I know you guys are going to work through this. She loves you, how could she not?

Quinn: I’ll miss you, I feel like I’m leaving a part of me behind. Carter, I love you.

Carter: I love you too.

Quinn: Carter.

Carter: Quinn. You’re back at work.

Quinn: Yeah. Don’t let me interrupt yours.

Carter: Wait, wait. Quinn, uh. Don’t go. I was just thinking about you. How was your homecoming with eric? Bet it was quite the celebration.

Quinn: Eric, erectile dysfunction is nothing to be ashamed of.

Quinn: Eric and I had a lovely evening.

Carter: Did you do anything special?

Quinn: We just talked.

Carter: Talking is good place to start.

Quinn: It was actually pretty emotional. We… we hadn’t been that open and honest with each other in a very long time.

Wyatt: Hey. Thought I heard you in here. With carter?

Quinn: Hi, sweetie.

Carter: Your mom was just telling me about her reunion with eric.

Wyatt: Oh, yeah. Exciting news.

Carter: Very.

Wyatt: I got your text. I wanted to congratulate you in person, but uh, do I have to remind you not to screw this up?

Zende: This looks much better. What do you think of these changes, charlene, how do they feel?

Charlene: I thought it was perfect before, but you’re the designer.

Paris: Yeah. One of the best in the building.

Zende: Workin’ on it.

Paris: Don’t let me slow you down.

Zende: No, I think we’re done for now. Thank you.

Paris: Wow, very good. You know, I think charlene wanted to spend a little bit more time with you.

Zende: The only woman I want to spend any time with is standing in front of me.

[ Paris sighing ] Everything all right?

Paris: I don’t know… you’re steffy’s cousin, so, it’s not like she’s going to keep this from family.

Zende: Something’s going on with steffy?

Paris: I’m worried about her relationship with finn.

Finn: The kids still asleep?

Steffy: Yeah. There’s coffee.

Finn: Thanks. I, I need it.

Steffy: I didn’t sleep much either. It was weird not having you in bed with me.

Finn: Yeah, it was. It was awful. Look, steffy, I am so sorry that I allowed sheila to hold our son. It was horrible error in judgment. I broke my promise to you. I betrayed your trust. Look, I’m not making excuses. But I swear for one, one stupid moment, I really did think that I was protecting our family. But I was wrong. And I will do anything I can to make it up to you. (Drill sergeant) what a pleasant morning. It’s warm, but not too warm.

Wyatt: So you guys were just talking about eric?

Quinn: Well, I guess our reunion is a pretty big deal around here.

Carter: I was congratulating your mom, wyatt. She and eric are happy again and I am happy for them.

Wyatt: Yeah, me too.

Quinn: You know what would make me happy? A wedding. Yes, I mean, not mine, of course, I’m talking about yours.

Wyatt: No.

Quinn: You and flo have been engaged far too long.

Wyatt: No. No, no, no. Do not start hounding flo about our wedding day.

Quinn: No, see I don’t see it as hounding, I see it more like helping.

Wyatt: You know what? You know where flo is? Because I have to take her for lunch.

Quinn: No, I don’t, but wherever you take her, see if they have a catering menu.

Wyatt: It’s good to see you acting like yourself again, mom.

Quinn: Thank you, honey.

Wyatt: Right, well, congratulations again. I will see you later, all right?

Quinn: Okay.

Wyatt: Carter.

Carter: Wyatt. Well, he seems genuinely pleased for you and eric.

Quinn: Yeah, yeah, he does. But not everybody feels that way. Brooke and ridge for instance, they think that our reconciliation is a terrible mistake. What about you? I heard what you said to wyatt, how do you really feel about me and eric being back together?

Zende: Steffy must have lost her mind when she walked in and saw sheila holding her baby.

Paris: Yeah, finn feels awful about it.

Zende: Did sheila actually leave?

Paris: I don’t know.

Zende: So she’s still here? No wonder you’re worried.

Paris: I’m concerned about that, but also how it’s impacting their marriage, you know? Finn spent the night in the guest house.

Zende: Oh wow.

Paris: I just, I can’t believe steffy threw him out of the house for that, I mean, it seems a little extreme. And how are they going to deal with this if she can’t even look at him?

Steffy: Finn, I love you. But I’m trying to understand how you could put our son into the hands of the monster who shot my mother and terrorized my family after I told you to stay away from her.

Finn: I can’t defend that. I can’t defend it. All I can say is that nothing like that will ever happen again. Look, I love you, steffy. I love our son and kelly and I love our life together. I’m not going to let anyone, or anything ever come between us. Look, I just, I just need you to believe me that I won’t let you down again. We’re supposed to go to the courthouse today and make our marriage official. It’s the perfect reset. Our marriage can begin today. By signing those papers it can be more than just a formality. It can be a renewal of our commitment and our faith in each other. We need this, steffy, we need this for us and our future together. There are times, I wonder…

Carter: I meant what I said to wyatt.

Quinn: So did I.

Carter: Doesn’t mean I don’t miss you. Look, I know how important your marriage is and I’m glad you and eric were able to put it back together.

Quinn: Things aren’t exactly been the same.

Carter: You said you guys were being more honest with each other.

Quinn: You think you know what’s going on with someone, how they are thinking, and they’re feeling, and then you find out that you’ve got it all wrong.

Carter: I’m sure it’s been difficult for eric. Being separated from you. I’m sure he couldn’t wait to get you in his arms, and be close to you. Yeah, it must have been really fulfilling being back home with him.

Zende: Man, you are really invested in this.

Paris: I mean, finn has stood by steffy through so much.

Zende: They probably just need some space, look at us. We decided to take a step back, slow things down a little bit, and I would say, we’re in a better place because of it.

Paris: We are.

Zende: Hey, just the other day you were telling me how much in love they are. I am sure they will patch things up.

Paris: Yeah, and finn is ready to do that, if only steffy will give him a chance. I live with them, zende, I see them, I see how they are as a couple, with the kids. Finn is so good for steffy you know? And, and he’s caring and devoted, and you know he actually cares about her happiness. She has to see that. And she has to forgive him so that they can move on.

Steffy: I never questioned your love for me or mine for you. You changed my life, and I’m so grateful for that. From the moment I met you, I knew I could trust you. I felt safe with you. You never let me down… until now.

Finn: Look, I wasn’t trying to defy you or diminish any of your fears.

Steffy: No, and I want you to know that I do trust you, and I know that you would never lie to me.

Finn: Never.

Steffy: Well, I can’t hide this from you. On our wedding day, when we said our vows, I vowed to be there for you, like you are for me. And when there is a challenge, we don’t avoid it. We step up and we face it.

Finn: We can, we can do that together.

Steffy: Yeah, um. I know we’re supposed to file our marriage certificate today. But finn, I… I can’T. I can’t do it knowing sheila is out there. She was at our house. She held our child. I can’t go to the courthouse with you.

Finn: You don’t want to leave the kids with amelia? You’re scared sheila is gonna show up?

Steffy: I can’t finalize our marriage right now, finn.

Finn: You said you believe me.

Steffy: I’m not trying to punish you. I just can’t get that image out of my mind.

Finn: Sheila, she was just holding him. She wasn’t hurting him. She wasn’t going to run off. I was right there. I wouldn’t have let her do anything to hurt hayes. You know that.

Steffy: Her being here, finn, wasn’t an accident. She knew what she was doing. At the wedding reception, she told me she wanted to see our son. I said that was never going to happen. But she found a way.

Finn: You’re afraid she could do it again, but I’m telling you–

Steffy: You do not know what’s she’s capable of! You don’T. If you did, you wouldn’t have her anywhere near our child! Now she feels as though she made inroads with you–

Finn: She hasn’t!

Steffy: She’s going to keep trying, trust me. I know this. She’s going to keep trying and trying and manipulate her way back into our lives, I can’T. I can’t live with that! I can’t!

Finn: So, what are you saying?

Steffy: I can’t think about anything else, until I can stop thinking about sheila.

Finn: But if we don’t file the papers, we aren’t officially married.

Steffy: It’s not you. It’s her. I can’t do this. I don’t want sheila connected to this. To us. I’m not saying it’s not going to happen. But I can’t finalize our marriage today.

Quinn: I’m still trying to process everything.

Carter: Things are good, though, right? Being back home.

Quinn: Yeah.

Carter: But it’s not the same.

Quinn: No. Well… I think eric and I both changed. We had experiences while we were apart. We, we… we learned things about ourselves and… we’re just trying to be open and honest about all of it.

Carter: All of it? You didn’t tell him about…

[ Pen clattering ]

Quinn: No. I didn’T.

Carter: And there’s no reason to. ‘Cause that’s in the past. And I’m glad that you’re back in the office and home with eric, but… I’ll miss what we had. I miss holding you, I miss lying in bed together. Making love to you. Look, I’m sorry if I’m making you feel uncomfortable. And I promise that I won’t bring it up every time we’re alone. But you asked how I really felt. And you’re committed to eric.

Paris: Hey, hey, checking on you. Can I come in?

Finn: Uh, sure.

Paris: Did you just go for a run?

Finn: Yeah, it’s probably not the best way to cool off.

Paris: Well, I thought I would see steffy after the courthouse. And uh… how’d it, how’d it go? Finn: I don’t know. It didn’T. I can’t believe it.

Paris: Oh. Uh, what happened?

Finn: Steffy canceled the appointment. She can’t finalize our marriage while sheila’s still out there.

Paris: I mean, you’re already married. You just gotta sign a few papers.

Finn: She can’t get past what happened with sheila and hayes.

Paris: Well, steffy can’t blame you.

Finn: I promised to protect her. I gave her my word that I would protect her and our family. From the moment we met, I’ve only had one goal. It’s to make this incredible woman feel safe and secure. And that is not how she is feeling right now. Not about sheila and… not about us.

Paris: I’m so sorry.

[ Child laughing ]

[ Dramatic music ]

[ Knocking ]

Steffy: Dad. Thank god.

Ridge: Hi. Was surprised to get your text. Thought you were on your business trip.

Steffy: Uh, yeah, yeah, I cancelled it.

Ridge: Cancelled it, huh? So I guess you already know.

Steffy: Know what?

Ridge: Grandad and quinn are back together.

Steffy: As if this day couldn’t get any worse.

Ridge: So I guess you didn’t know. So what’s going on? Door’s locked for the first time in years and… you seem rattled. Where’s finn?

Steffy: I asked him to leave.

Paris: Finn? I was just coming in and I saw you through the window. What are you doing in the guesthouse? Trying to get away from the heat? Oh, um, is everything okay?

Finn: I’m, uh, I’m giving steffy some space.

Paris: Space? Why? Did you get in a fight?

Quinn: Hey.

Eric: Hey.

Quinn: You know what I was thinking we could do tonight? I was thinking maybe we could watch a movie. Have some popcorn, curl up with each other in the screening room.

Eric: Sure.

Quinn: Yeah? But first, I was thinking maybe what we could do is take a little swim. It’s such a beautiful evening.

Eric: Been a long, hot day hasn’t it?

Quinn: Yeah, it has.

Eric: Sure. I’ll get a swimsuit.

Quinn: Whoa. Who said anything about swimsuits? It’s just the two of us. All we need is each other and maybe a pitcher of martinis, you know? Get us nice and relaxed.

Eric: You think a martini would help our cause?

Quinn: It couldn’t hurt.

Eric: Good idea.

Quinn: I don’t want you to have a care in the world. We’re going to get through this together. Who knows, maybe tonight we’ll even have a breakthrough.

Eric: I appreciate so much you’re trying to help me with this. Coping with it on my own for so long, so many months.

Quinn: I know. I wish you’d confided in me sooner.

Eric: I wasn’t ready, quinn.

Quinn: I understand.

Eric: Yeah.

Quinn: But now that you’ve finally made me aware of what you’re going through, you gotta let me help you through it. I’m your wife, eric.

Eric: I just don’t see a solution on the horizon. I don’T. I’ve done everything. I’ve talked to doctors, psychiatrists and I just– it’s still so hard to talk about.

Quinn: Well, you don’t have to talk about it. All you have to do is let me love you.

Paris: Wow, I can’t believe it. You and steffy never argue.

Finn: No, we didn’T. It wasn’t like that. It was worse. I broke her trust. I gave her my word that I would protect her and I failed.

Paris: Okay, finn, what exactly happened?

Finn: Steffy walked in on my birth mother holding hayes.

Paris: No. Wait, you’re serious? Sheila was here?

Ridge: You asked finn to leave? Why?

Steffy: I just needed some time to think. He’s spending the night in the guesthouse.

Ridge: Oh, well that’s surprising. You guys always seemed to be in sync.

Steffy: Yeah, we are. That’s not the problem.

Ridge: Well, whatever it is, I’m sure you’ll work it out and you’ll be better for it.

Steffy: The sad part is not about finn and me. Our relationship. It’s much worse than that, dad. It’s about sheila.

Think wearing less makeup

means no need for a wipe?

[ Romantic music ]

Quinn: You are a wonderful, loving, sexy man. And you’ve always fulfilled me in the past and I have no doubt that you will again.

Finn: I shouldn’t even have let her into the house, let alone let her hold hayes, our infant son, I mean that’s the most precious thing to steffy.

Paris: So, you didn’t think it through. But you didn’t mean any harm.

Finn: I just– I didn’t consider how dangerous it could be.

Paris: You thought it would be the end of it. The end of sheila in your life.

Finn: I just– I feel awful to have to put steffy through that, I mean after everything sheila has put her family through.

Paris: Yeah, steffy’s got a right to be mad.

Finn: She was just… so disappointed in me.

Paris: Okay, hey. I get it. You know, you made a bad decision and you didn’t think it through but it was a bad decision made by a good guy. A great guy. So, you know, don’t beat yourself up over this.

Finn: I swore up and down that I had everything under control. I mean, we had a whole discussion about it before steffy left on her trip. And what did I do? I went back on my word. And I disregarded her wishes. And I just assured her that everything was gonna be okay.

Paris: Finn, you didn’t ask for this. Alright, you didn’t ask to be sheila’s biological son. She carried you for nine months. And she’s a mystery woman in your life. And you haven’t met her and you meet her for the first time and it’s huge. So I understand why you feel so connected to her. I do.

Ridge: What about sheila?

Steffy: I made it clear to finn how crucial it was that she stayed out of our lives. And I don’t blame him, I mean, I can’t blame him that she’s his biological mom.

Ridge: No you can’T. That’s not his fault.

Steffy: And I don’t want to make him feel guilty that something that’s out of his hands, out of his control. But he promised me– he promised me that she wasn’t gonna be in our lives.

Ridge: What happened?

Steffy: Well, you know how I was supposed to go to san francisco on that business trip?

Ridge: Hope for the future, yeah.

Steffy: I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t–couldn’t go. I didn’t want to go.

Ridge: I get that. You have a new baby. You want to stay home.

Steffy: No. It wasn’t like that mom guilt. No, I had this like… I had this like, panic inside of me. I knew something was wrong, I mean, how could I? It’s like– sheila is out there and she could harm my children. And finn reassured me that nothing was gonna happen, I didn’t have to be afraid.

Ridge: What happened?

Steffy: I was on the plane and before we took off, there was a delay and my motherly intuition, it just kicked in and I knew I had to go, I had to bail. And I didn’t tell finn, I just– I wanted to surprise him but I was the one who got the surprise.

Ridge: Steffy, tell me.

Steffy: Sheila was here, dad. I walked in and sheila was here, in my living room.

Ridge: That monster was here in your house?

Steffy: It was my worst nightmare. Like the biggest thing I’ve ever feared. She was here.

Ridge: No, no, no, no.

Steffy: No, not only was she here, that psychopath was holding my little baby.

Ridge: She was holding hayes?

Steffy: Yes.

Ridge: Where was finn?

Steffy: He was here.

Ridge: He was here the whole time?

Steffy: He was here. He allowed it. He let it happen. -Finally, a make-up made -just for us

Ridge: So you’re telling me that finn allowed sheila to come here to your house, your home, after everything she’s done?

Steffy: He felt pressured.

Ridge: Pressured to do what? Have her hold my grandchild? Really? He knows who she is.

Steffy: I know–

Ridge: She’s caused nothing but havoc for this family.

Steffy: I thought he listened. I thought he understood–

Ridge: He doesn’t listen. Right? After everything we told him, he just ignored it.

Steffy: Finn’s dad was here, too.

Ridge: Jack was here? There’s something off with that guy.

Steffy: Finn said he and sheila were just– I don’t know, they were hounding him.

Ridge: Not an excuse.

Steffy: I know he’s not a bad guy, but maybe he just felt like he was–

Ridge: He was what?

Steffy: He felt like he was in the middle.

Ridge: He has one job. To take care of you, take care of the kids. That’s it. Nothing else.

Finn: I can still see the horror on steffy’s face.

Paris: I’m sorry, finn. This–this whole thing just sucks.

Finn: You know, I trusted my dad. He never steers me wrong.

Paris: I wonder what was going on in his head? Why he was so adamant about you meeting sheila?

Finn: He kept saying that he wasn’t just looking out for steffy and me, but our whole family.

Paris: How so?

Finn: Maybe he feels bad for sheila?

Paris: Because of the adoption?

Finn: Probably painful for her.

[ Sighing ] I know there was only one way to handle today. And I did the complete opposite. I caved. Why did I let myself be manipulated?

Paris: Finn–

Finn: No, paris. This was a colossal screw up. Why didn’t I just say no? Tell her to leave? Now, I’m away from my wife. And steffy’s lost faith in me.

Quinn: We can take this as slowly as you need to.

Eric: Quinn, I’m– I’m sorry. It’s just not gonna work.

Quinn: Aw, come on, eric. Hey, we gotta try, right? I mean, look, I’m just getting started here. You gotta let me work my magic.

Eric: Your magic.

Quinn: Mm-hm.

Eric: You know how much I’ve always loved that. I can’T. I can’t, quinn. I’M… I’m failing both of us here.

Quinn: No, no, no. Don’t say that. Come on. Eric, there are other ways to reconnect. We just have to be more creative.

Eric: It’s been months. It’s been months and I haven’t– I haven’t felt or I haven’t seen any improvement.

Quinn: Okay, okay, well maybe not yet. But we gotta try, all right? You and I, we can do anything together as long as we’ve got love. I want to try. Please? No pressure. No expectations. Scoot over.

[ Romantic music ]

Quinn: No, no. Don’t stop. Let’s keep going.

Eric: Quinn, I love you. I want you. I want you more than anything but I– I can’T. I love– I love how much you want to help me and I love how supportive you are but I–I can’T.

Quinn: Eric, every marriage–

Eric: This isn’t every marriage. This is ours. This is our marriage and it’s not okay. I can’t– I can’t fulfill you.

Quinn: Yes, you can. You fulfill me and you please me in each and every way.

Eric: No, I don’T. Not the way you deserve.

Quinn: Eric, don’t be ridiculous.

Eric: I can’t do this. I can’t be doing this to you. You’re trapped here. You’re trapped here with me with no fulfillment, no sexual fulfillment. You should go!

Quinn: No, eric, don’t say that to me. I love you. And I want you. You are as handsome and as sexy as you always have been to me. And nothing is gonna change that. Nothing. Come here. Come on.

Eric: Oh, god.

Eric: I’m so sorry. I’m sorry.

[ Rainfall ]

Finn: I just should’ve listened to my gut.

Paris: Finn, hey, you made a mistake, all right? But nobody got hurt. Hayes is safe. Everybody’s fine.

Finn: Luckily. But the truth is, I let steffy down.

Paris: Sheila and your pops put you in an impossible position.

Finn: I admitted to steffy that I wanted to see my birth mother one last time. I can’t help it.

Paris: That makes sense.

Finn: All my life, I… I’ve envisioned her. I have these… bonds, these, these wishes and thinking of what it could be and now it’s just turned into this big, ugly mess.

Paris: Well, I’m no therapist. But having experience in social work, I’ve witnessed a lot of loss. And you, my friend, you’re mourning a loss. The loss of the idea you had of her. The relationship you might have had.

Finn: Yeah. And– I just… I feel for her. You know, she just wanted one good memory with her grandson. But… that doesn’t matter. I owe it to my wife to stay true to her wishes.

Paris: I’m sure steffy kicked you out pretty fast.

Finn: She did, she– I tried apologizing again and again, but she’s heartbroken. And she feels betrayed. She says she couldn’t even look at me. Paris, this is stephanie, my wife. The mother of my child. She couldn’t even look at me. What have I done, paris? What have I done?

Ridge: How does finn do that? Give that woman even an ounce of sympathy?

Steffy: I don’t know what he was thinking. I don’t understand how he allowed himself to be talked into it.

Ridge: He’s a grown man, yes? Where’s his backbone?

Steffy: Dad, I’m as disappointed as you are. But he’s not a malicious guy.

Ridge: I’m not saying he’s malicious.

Steffy: Dad, you weren’t there. You don’t– you don’t get it. I feel the exact same way you do. My heart is racing right now. You have no idea what it was like to walk in and see that woman holding my child. I thought she was gonna run away with him. I thought that was her plan. I was like the ultimate revenge on our family.

Ridge: Shh. Okay, okay. Let’s keep it down. We’re gonna figure this out. Let’s stay strong.

Steffy: I’m trying– I’m trying to stay strong. I really am. But I hate it. I hate that sheila is his mom. That she’s my mother-in-law.

Ridge: She’s not. Li is your mother-in-law.

Steffy: Sheila’s sick and twisted dna is in my husband. It’s in my son. My husband is sleeping out in the guesthouse right now and I want him back here. I want him here with hayes and with kelly and me, but every time I look at him now– I see his face and all I see is sheila. That evil face and I don’t know what to do. I don’t know what to do. I just–I feel like I– I’m losing my mind. I feel like I can’t escape it. I don’t know. I don’t know, dad. I really don’t know what to do.

[ Door opens ]

Steffy: [ Sighs ] You knew how I felt about sheila. You knew that I never wanted her near our son. But yet I walk in here and she’s holding hayes.

Finn: I’m sorry. I– I didn’t invite her. My dad was convinced that if–

Steffy: It doesn’t matter, finn. The moment sheila walked in, you should have called the police. This woman is dangerous. She’s unpredictable. She’s– god, she’s a sociopath. She could’ve kidnapped our son, and we wouldn’t have seen him again. Like, how– how could you do that? How could you put him in harm’s way like that, finn? How could you?

Steffy: I’m gonna protect my son from you, sheila. We’re getting a restraining order, and you’re never gonna see finn, hayes, or me never again!

[ Banging ]

Jack: Why are you still here?

Sheila: Excuse me?

Jack: You swore if you saw finn, held your grandson just once, you’d leave. You got what you wanted. Now go.

Sheila: Oh, it’s just not quite that easy, jack.

Jack: It is. You caused enough trouble.

Sheila: If you’re talking about steffy’s reaction when she saw me holding my grandson–

Jack: She was livid, and she blames me for pushing finn into it.

Sheila: Yeah, well, just her some time. She’llget over it.

Jack: Give her some time? Did you see her, sheila? If you think you’ll get anywhere near hayes again, you will never be a grandmother to finn’s son. Pack your things and leave.

Paris: I’m distracting you.

Zende: That’s my favorite kind of distraction. What?

Paris: Um, just another day at work? [ Laughs ] I’m just wondering how many women have you kissed here at forrester.

Zende: You’re curious about the women I’ve kissed.

Paris: Do you even remember how many?

Zende: I don’t know. Let’s see. There was, um, debbie jarrett.

Paris: Who?

Zende: The first girl I kissed. On the cheek. She was 8, and I was 7. I was a bad boy, paris.

Paris: No, I’m talking, you know, more recently.

Zende: Recently, as in last year?

Paris: Seriously. Okay, you’re a forrester. You’re an attractive, talented designer. You have to know that every girl here has the hots for you, zende. I mean, you gotta tell me, who do you have your eye on?

Zende: You really wanna know?

Paris: Yeah, I really wanna know.

Sheila: I don’t like your tone, jack.

Jack: You’ve caused enough grief for finn and steffy. Li and me, too.

Sheila: I haven’t done anything to your precious li.

Jack: It doesn’t mean you won’t leave this room, go straight to her and tell her everything.

Sheila: About a tryst that we had years ago? That happens.

Jack: Not to me. I love my wife.

Sheila: Yeah, well, I distinctly remember you not getting enough of me. Coming to my place and throwing me up against the wall. You couldn’t get enough.

Jack: That was a lifetime ago.

Sheila: But I vividly remember the night that I told you I was pregnant. Your deepest secret that I have kept all these years: You, finn’s biological father.

Finn: I never would have allowed sheila to take our son.

Steffy: This is our home. This is our safe place, our sanctuary. But it didn’t feel that way anymore because sheila was in here and she was holding our son. That is a huge– a huge violation for me. I asked one thing of you– to care for our son while I was gone. And the one thing I feared the most you allowed to happen. The man I trust. The man who vowed to keep our child safe. The man who said he wasn’t gonna let anyone interfere in our family and our happiness. I mean, those were your words. That’s what you said, finn. You said that.

[ Sighs ] I get that sheila is your biological mother. But I am your wife, and you knew that I would never allow her in here, but you did. Can you please explain that to me?

Hey, it’s me…your skin.

Zende: I like keeping you guessing. It’s fun.

Paris: Yeah, I’m not sure it’s guessing. Oh. You know what? It’s clarice, the new model. She’s hot.

Zende: Oh, she’s bad. But no. I keep thinking about you. Actually, I kind of have this crazy idea.

Paris: Ooh, crazy can be exciting.

Zende: Yes, it can. Why don’t you leave the beach house, come move in with me. We’ll have a lot of fun.

Paris: Yeah, I mean, I’m sure we would. But, you know, I’m actually really having a lot of fun with steffy and finn. It’s so sweet how they connect, and I absolutely adore hayes and kelly and dr. Finn, too. I mean, he’s really something.

Sheila: But because of my feelings for you and then you convincing me that I was in no position to raise a child.

Jack: You weren’T. You said so yourself.

Sheila: You know what? I–I sacrificed for you. No, you and li couldn’t conceive, so I let you raise my son. Li’s the only mother that finn has ever known until now.

Jack: I was never gonna leave my wife for you. You knew that.

Sheila: And you were never gonna tell li that you fathered your son with another woman. So, you know, don’t stand there acting like I’m the only one that’s ever done anything wrong.

Jack: Are you finished?

Sheila: Oh, I’m sure you’d like it if I were, wouldn’t you? Because you don’t like being reminded of what you& have to lose. Your marriage. Your relationship with finn. But that’s what it comes down to. You stand to lose everything if you’re not very careful.

Steffy: Sheila was standing in our home holding our innocent little boy. That never should’ve happened. You should’ve shut your dad down the minute he told you what she wanted.

Finn: I did. He just–he– he kept pushing, and he insisted that I give her this one chance, and if I did, sheila promised that she’d be out of our lives forever. You know, and I know that what’s you wanted.

Steffy: You’re saying you did this for me?

Finn: I thought it would be worth it if you never had to deal with sheila again.

Steffy: That’s what she was counting on. She used it to get access to our son. She manipulated jack, and she manipulated you.

Finn: I guess I just… was hoping that–

Steffy: Hoping what? That she wasn’t the same person who tried to kill my mom, brooke, andmade my grandmother’s life a living hell? Because people like sheila, they don’t change.

Finn: I understand that. Okay? And if sheila wasn’t my birth mother, but… she is. And despite everything that she’s done… deep down, I guess I just– I wanted to see my birth mother one last time.

Steffy: [ Scoffs ]

Certain hpv-related cancers?

Zende: You are, uh, really impressed with finn.

Paris: I mean, he’s an impressive guy. He’s a great dad, a wonderful doctor, a loving and attentive husband. Oh, the way that he treats steffy. I mean, true, he is lucky to have married someone as terrific as her, but she did all right for herself. I mean–I mean, better than all right.

Paris: Finn’s the total package. Not to mention, he’s not a bad-looking package.

Zende: Okay. Just so you know, I did pretty well for myself, too, with you.

Sheila: You know, jack, I’m holding all the cards, and you’d do well to remember that.

Jack: There’s something you need to remember, too. If there isn’t already a restraining order with your name on it, there will be after tonight. So you forced your way into finn’s–

Sheila: I didn’t force my way anywhere.

Jack: Doesn’t matter. You go anywhere near that house, you’ll be behind bars so fast. That’s why you need to walk away, sheila, while you still can.

Sheila: I’ll walk away when I’m ready to walk away, and there’s not a damn thing you can do about it.

Jack: Damn it, sheila! I am tired of this.

Sheila: You wanna know what I’m tired of? I’m tired of everyone attacking me, jack. You giving me ultimatums and steffy hell-bent on keeping me out of finn and hayes’s lives. She even had the audacity to slap me twice. But since when has violence solved anything?

Steffy: I realize you always wondered about your birth mother. Under normal circumstances, I totally support you gettig to know her. But sheila’s anything but normal.

Finn: That still doesn’t change the fact that she gave birth to me. Or the part of me that… wanted to see her again. I’ll probably never meet my birth father, and today was… my last chance to connect with the woman that brought me into this world. Yeah. I, uh– I went against your wishes and my better judgment. I allowed sheila to hold hayes. Now I see how upset you are and how… betrayed you feel, and… I’m sorry. Steffy, I–I am so sorry.

Sheila: I don’t think you know what this meant to me– to hold our son and our grandson. I gave birth to finn. Even though I let you talk me into giving him up, I don’t know why–

Jack: You make it sound like you were forced into it. That wasn’t how it was.

Sheila: Well, that’s how I felt, jack. That’s how I felt in my heart, losing a child.

Jack: This isn’t getting us anywhere. You’re just delaying the inevitable, and I won’t have that. I now know your history with the forresters. All the cruel and sadistic things you’ve done to them. You shot steffy’s mother, for god sakes. Well, she’s my daughter-in-law now, and finn loves her. I’m not gonna let you put a strain on their marriage, ruin the best thing that’s happened to him in years. So either you keep your promise as you said you’d do, or–

Sheila: Or what, jack? What are you gonna do about it?

Jack: We made a deal. You got to see finn one more time, hold hayes. I came through for you, and guess what. Now you’re gonna come through for me. You will never tell li about our past, and you will never tell anyone how finn was conceived, how he came to be adopted by my wife and me. You will take our little secret to the grave, sheila. You hear me? To the grave.

Steffy: I know you intentionally didn’t go behind my back, inviting sheila over, knowing that I was out of town, but–

Finn: That was my dad. He just–he felt that if she got this one chance– sheila saw me and hayes this one last time– that it would be enough.

Steffy: Nothing is ever enough when it comes to sheila. Telling your father that was just a way for her to get her foot in the door with you and our son, and that’s what really scares me. I’m terrified knowing what she’s gonna do next, what she’s planning, how is she gonna try to contact you.

Finn: That’s not gonna happen.

Steffy: You swore that she would never come near you or our son. She’s never going to be satisfied, finn. She’s not, now that she’s held our son. She’s gonna try to insinuate herself into his life, and I’m not gonna let that happen.

Finn: Neither will I, steffy, ever again.

Steffy: You don’t know all the terrible things this woman has done to me and my family. She deprived me of my mom for years. Like, I think about it often what life would have been like without sheila carter. And to know what my son might go through now that she’s back here, it’s terrifying. Look, I know that she gave birth to you. Well, her blood is in you, and it’s in our innocent little boy. I love you, finn, and I was excited about our future together. But learning that you have this tie to sheila… that she was in our home holding our child… as much it pains me to say this… I can’t even look at you right now. I can’T. Knowing the pain you caused.

Finn: Do you need some time alone?

Steffy: [ Sighs ]

Finn: I’ll just, um– I can go in the guest house, and I can give you the night. But… please believe me when I tell you this, that… I’m truly sorry. And I really love you. And I love our family. And I love our life together.

[Door closes]

Steffy: [ Sniffles, sighs ]

[Hayes crying]

Steffy: What the hell is this?!

[Hayes continues crying] Steffy: Put him down. Now!

Sheila: He was–he was fine– he was fine until you came in.

Steffy: Oh, my baby! Come here, baby. Come here, baby. Oh, bubba. Oh, mama’s here.

[Shushing] It’s okay.

Sheila: He’s okay! I wasn’t– I wasn’t doing anything wrong. I was just holding him.

Steffy: You shouldn’t be here. She shouldn’t!

[Hayes fussing quietly] I’m gonna put him in his crib, and then I want some answers.

Finn: What have I done?

Jack: No, it’s my fault. I’ll take the blame.

Finn: How? I’m the one who broke her trust, not you.

Sheila: I–I’m the one. I shouldn’t have put you in this position. I–I think I can make her understand what’s happening.

Finn: No, please. Okay, I–I just… I think it’s best if you leave.

Sheila: No, but we have something in common. Mother to mother, I think i can–I can make her understand. I really do. At least give me a chance. Please, son, I got you into this mess. Let me try and get you out of it.

[Message sent notification]

[Liam sighs]

Liam: Uh, um…

Hope: Surprise.

Liam: Um…

Hope: [Laughs]

Liam: Oh, hey! Hi!

Hope: I got your text. Missing me like crazy. I mean, I can’t have you& going through that.

Liam: How did–

Hope: [Laughs]

Liam: You just–

Hope: And here I thought I would be interrupting some kind of crazy party.

Liam: Oh, yeah, no, you did. Planning a wild night.

Hope: [Laughs]

Liam: Here, what’s going– why are you home?

Hope: Oh, I just couldn’t bear the night away from my husband.

Liam: Oh, yeah, sure, sure. No, totally get that.

Hope: And then the flight was delayed… and then delayed, and then delayed some more. And then steffy bailed and then after sitting on the tarmac for two more hours, I decided it was probably time to reschedule.

Liam: Well…good.

[Both laugh] This is such a great surprise.

Hope: Yeah, well, I’m sure it is for everyone, especially finn. You remember what it was like to be a new father. Having hayes all by himself, I bet he was relieved to see steffy walk through that door.

Jack: I thought steffy was supposed to be leaving town.

Finn: Yeah, she was.

Jack: So what could’ve happened? Why would she come home?

Finn: I have no idea, dad. As far as I know, steffy was supposed to be on a plane.

Steffy: Until I had a bad feeling. A feeling I shouldn’t be on that plane, but it never never occurred to me I’d be walking in on this–sheila holding our son!

Sheila: Don’t get angry with finn. I can explain everything, steffy.

Steffy: No, there’s no explanation for this! None! You had one job! To keep our child safe. You said you understood. You agreed. You agreed not to have sheila in our lives. How could you do this? How? How could you do this after everything she’s done, all the pain she’s caused? How could you put our son in her arms? Darrell’s family uses gain flings now so their laundry

Liam: So when are you, uh– when are you rescheduling this meeting?

Hope: Oh, later in the month. I wanted to give steffy a little more time before she had to take a trip overnight.

Liam: Yeah.

Hope: I could tell it was really bothering her, feeling like she should be at home, so…

Liam: Well, she got her wish.

Hope: [Chuckles] Yeah.

Liam: Hell, so did I. This day just got a thousand times better.

Hope: I know, I know. I probably should have called first, but…I don’t know. Surprises are just so much more fun.

Liam: No, yeah, no. It’s all good. In fact, I have a surprise for you, too.

Hope: You do?

Liam: Yeah. Do– do you hear that sound?

Hope: No. What sound?

Liam: Exactly. We have no children till after dinner.

Liam: Huh? Right? So I’m thinking that– a little sexy time. A little, uh… little romantic reunion might be in order.

Hope: Huh. Even though i didn’t really leave town?

Liam: Don’t need to leave town to have a reunion. We can reunite all night long.

Hope: Oh. Well then.

Sheila: Look, I know that this comes as a bit of a shock, but I can ex–

Steffy: The woman who tried to kill my mom is in my house holding our son.

Sheila: And that’s all I was doing. I was just holding my grandson, loving him the way any grandmother would. Please, don’t be angry at finn for giving me that moment.

Jack: If you’re gonna be angry with anyone, be angry at me. I’m the one who talked finn into it.

Steffy: Why would you do that? Why would you do that? You know how dangerous she is. You kept her secret from him because you were trying to protect your son. My son deserves protection too.

Jack: Exactly what finn and i are trying to do. She just wants to hold hayes this one time, then she’ll leave. She’ll be gone from your lives forever. I wanted finn to let her in so that you would never have to deal with her again.

Steffy: You are so naive, both of you are!

Finn: Look, she promised that she would–

Steffy: Promise? Promises don’t mean a damn thing to her! You can’t believe anything she says.

Sheila: No, but I meant it, steffy. I did. Jack came to see me and he demanded that I leave town and I said that I would, that I would leave all of you alone… but I did want something in return. I wanted to meet my grandson.

Steffy: You were just gonna see him and leave? And be gone forever? You weren’t gonna do that. That’s bull. You have some messed up plan to infiltrate our lives.

Sheila: Now, do I want to– do I want to know my son, my grandson? Of course. But there’s no plan. I’m just hoping that maybe one day–

Steffy: Do you see what she’s doing right now? Do you see what she’s doing? She’s lying to you. She’s manipulating you. And you’re blatantly falling for it. You are! You snuck her in here while I was gone.

Finn: It wasn’t like that.

Steffy: Yeah.

Jack: Don’t blame finn. It was all me. He didn’t want to let her in. He respects your wishes, steffy. He knows she’S… some kind of a threat.

Steffy: No, he doesn’T. Otherwise she wouldn’t be here. Wow, the extreme lack of judgment on both of you, it’s just–it’s wild.

Jack: Maybe we were manipulated, I don’t know, but it was worth taking a chance. I want her gone from all of our lives. This seemed like the way to do it. I understand that you’re not happy, and you don’t understand all this, but I was looking out for your family and mine. I want to be rid of her for once and for all.

Sheila: And you’re gonna be. I meant it when I said that. It was just one last time. I wanted to see finn, and I wanted to hold my grandson. And then I’ll be gone. You know, there’s gotta be something in you that understands this, steffy. You’re a mom. I, uh… I wonder if you can even imagine having a child and then walking away from him forever? Giving up my son was the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. And yet, here I stand with everyone asking me to do it again. All I wanted to do was to see finn… and to hold his son in my arms. Was there anything really wrong with that? I think you know that there wasn’T. So please, steffy… mother to mother… you have to know how much I needed this. Pool floaties are like whooping cough.

Liam: I’m ready when you are. Oh. Oh.

[Chuckles]

Hope: A reaction like that, I should leave–almost leave– town more often.

Liam: Yuh–uh-huh. Oh, my god, look at you.

Steffy: “Mother to mother.” How could you say that to me after what you did to mine?

Sheila: I–I realize that you hate me. I, uh… I never should’ve come to your wedding. I shouldn’t have come to the reception. I didn’t mean to cause any kind of a–an uprising. I didn’t mean to cause any trouble.

Steffy: How could you even say that with a straight face? That’s all you do is cause trouble. You thrive on it.

Sheila: Oh, I–I don’T. I don’t want to cause problems for the two of you. I really don’T. That’s why I–I was leaving. You were never gonna see me again. Unless perhaps maybe one day you’ll find it in your heart to forgive me.

Steffy: No, not a chance. No.

Sheila: Oh, for… for finn? For hayes?

Steffy: No. No, no, no. It would be a great gift for them, steffy.

Steffy: Not for hayes. You are never gonna see hayes again. You’re never gonna hold him. Never. If either one of you think I’m freaking out right now, it’s because this woman shot my grandmother and left her to die.

Sheila: You were too young to even understand.

Steffy: Understand that you kidnapped a child? I could’ve walked in here and both of you could’ve been dead, hayes gone. Like, you don’t even know–

Sheila: I’d never hurt my son.

Steffy: …Crazy things she’s done to my family, and I walk in here–I walk in here, and this woman, who’s committed many crimes, is holding our son. That is unforgivable.

Sheila: Look, I don’t want to make you more upset than you already are. Clearly you have such a–a– a narrow perspective of why I did the things that I had to do.

Steffy: [Scoffs]

Sheila: And clearly you worshipped your grandmother. You’re her namesake. But stephanie was not kind to me.

Steffy: Oh, don’t, don’T…

Sheila: No, she wasn’T.

Steffy: Do not do that. Do not try to turn this around. See, this is what she does. She manipulates you. She’s manipulating you right now. Don’t you see it? I see it in your eyes, your face. You’re just evil. And I hope none of that sickness is in my son.

Sheila: Sickness?

Steffy: I’m gonna protect my son from you, sheila.

Sheila: I told you, you don’t need to protect anyone. I’ll stay away.

Steffy: You’d better or I’m calling the police, and you’re going to jail. We’re getting a restraining order, and you’re never gonna see finn, hayes, or me, the entire forrester family. Never again.

Hope: Well, that was all the confirmation I needed.

Liam: [Stammers] What confirmation?

Hope: That I made the right decision getting off that plane.

Liam: Oh. Yes. Well, I’m always very supportive& of any decision you make that leads to… to what just happened here.

[Laughs]

Hope: So you said the kids aren’t going to be dropped off?

Liam: Kids? We have kids?! What? W–

Hope: [Laughs] I mean, don’t get me wrong, I am excited to surprise them, but I also am really enjoying this time alone with my husband in his arms.

Liam: Oh, yes, yes, yes… don’t you love it when a day takes a whole new direction you weren’t even expecting?

Hope: Hmm. I do.

Liam: I do, too. Thanks for being my unexpected.

Sheila: That’s a bit harsh, don’t you think? Wanting me behind bars if I ever want to reach out to my son?

Steffy: [Scoffs] He’s jack and li’s son, not yours. I know you think you hit the jackpot here. Somehow you weaseled your way back into the family you’ve been obsessing over for years. You don’t care about finn. You don’t care about getting to know him. Otherwise you would’ve reached out to him long before we got married. God, this motivation of yours couldn’t be more obvious. Hello!

Sheila: My motivation was love.

Steffy: Love? If you truly loved him, truly, then you would stay away. If you care about finn, prove it… by never contacting him again.

Sheila: You haven’t been listening, steffy. This is what I’ve been trying to tell you all along.

Steffy: He shouldn’t be subjected to you or your depravity. He is a good, honest man. He has never let me down. Well, until now. This is my home. This is my family. Not yours. You need to leave, now. And I need you to leave, too. No, I can’t even deal with you. I can’t believe you encouraged this. You let this woman into my home. You’ve got some nerve coming in here. Finn and jack may have fallen for it, but I won’t, because I know who you are, what you’re capable of. You’re a monster. You have no feelings.

Sheila: I have feelings.

Steffy: Homicidal ones don’t count, now get out. Go. I said you leave!

Finn: Steffy.

Steffy: Get out of here! And don’t you dare try to take anyone I love away from me.

Jack: Let’s go.

Steffy: Get out!

Finn: I’m sorry.

Steffy: If we don’t take off soon, we’re gonna miss our meeting.

Hope: Well, it’s not like they can start without us.

Steffy: What kind of weather is holding us up?

Hope: Well, I can check.

Steffy: No, no, you don’t have to do that. It’s not gonna change anything. I just hate being captive.

[Sighs] You seem so zen.

Hope: Well, for once, I’m not worried about what’s going on at home right now, whereas you… you have every right to be.

Steffy: It just makes me feel so nervous that sheila is out there. I don’t know. I’m starting to think that I-I-I should miss the meeting and go home to be with finn and the kids.

Sheila: Finn?

Finn: I can’t believe this. She’s outside our door. This can’t happen.

Jack: Don’t you see it’s the perfect opportunity? Steffy’s on a plane. Kelly’s with a sitter. It’s just you and me here.

Finn: No.

Jack: Sheila will be in and out before you know it. Just let her see you and hayes, and she’ll be gone for good. It’s what’s best, finn, for your family and ours.

Quinn: You are so precious to me. I hope you know that.

Eric: Well, if I didn’t, you’re convincing me. You could’ve walked out that door and never come back. Nobody would’ve blamed you. You’re a beautiful, vibrant woman in the prime of her life with needs that I… I can’t fulfill.

Quinn: Stop talking like this is a permanent condition.

Eric: What if it is, quinn? What if it is?

Quinn: Then I’ll love you anyway.

[Door opens]

Brooke: So it’s true. You’re back together.

Ridge: Here I thought carter was wrong, that he misinterpreted something.

Brooke: How could you do this, eric? How could you take quinn back after the way she betrayed you?

Quinn: Okay, look, I realize this isn’t the outcome that either of you wanted, but it’s what eric and i want, both of us. So why don’t we try to be big people here and let things be as they are?

Brooke: Oh, yeah, you’d like that, wouldn’t you, for us just to forget about what you did?

Quinn: Eric forgave me.

Ridge: But he shouldn’t have.

Quinn: Well, that’s not really your call, ridge, or yours. Look, I appreciate that you love eric and want what’s best for him, but he’s decided that that’s me. We’re not getting divorced. I’m not moving out, so why don’t you get off his case? He has enough to deal with.

[Air traffic control chatter]

Steffy: Do you think I’m overreacting?

Hope: About sheila? No. I mean, is that even possible?

Steffy: I mean, finn is more than capable of standing his ground. It’s just, I don’t know. Um… I have a feeling that I-I shouldn’t be here. Something’s telling me I need to be home with finn and the kids.

Sheila: Well, did you work it out? Are they both here– finn and hayes?

Jack: Yes.

Sheila: Then I wanna come in.

Jack: I need more time to get through to my son. Stay put.

Sheila: But, uh–

Finn: Is she gone?

Jack: No, but you want her to be, right?

Finn: That’s how it has to be.

Jack: No. This is how you do it. You allow sheila this moment, and steffy will never have to worry about her again.

Tums vs. Mozzarella stick

Brooke: You didn’t waste any time, did you?

Quinn: I beg your pardon?

Brooke: Your portrait back above the fireplace. You got it there lickety split.

Eric: Quinn had nothing to do with that. I asked carter to bring that back. Fortunately, he hadn’t thrown it out.

Brooke: Eric, have you forgotten what she did?

Eric: No. I’m glad to say that my brain is working just fine.

Ridge: No one is saying anything about your brain. She had an affair with carter under your nose.

Brooke: She turned to another man, and why? No good reason as far as I can see.

Eric: Look, you don’t you don’t know what was going on between us.

Brooke: Oh, so you’re saying that she’s justified in sleeping with carter?

Eric: No, I’m saying that I bear some responsibility for this.

Brooke: Oh, god.

Ridge: How is that? You’re–that’s not true.

Eric: I pushed her right into carter’s arms.

Brooke: Oh, eric, please stop. There’s no good reason for her to betray you like that.

Eric: It’s way more complicated than either one of you realizes. The point is quinn is still my wife.

Quinn: Eric and I have faced challenges before. This time won’t be any different.

Hope: I really thought we’d seen the last of sheila.

Steffy: You know what scares me? There’s a blood tie, and that means she’s never gonna be gone.

Hope: But you told finn to keep her away, right?

Steffy: Yeah, but he can only try so much. It’s sheila we’re talking about. She’s relentless.

Hope: You’re really worried, aren’t you?

Steffy: Yeah, of course I am. You know what she’s capable of. She’s hayes’ biological grandmother. I don’t think she’s gonna disappear.

Hope: Well, maybe she will for finn. I mean, he’s her son after all, and I could understand her wanting to stay on decent terms with him, even if it is for selfish reasons, but I mean, does finn even want to get to know sheila for himself?

Steffy: That can’t happen. He needs to keep her as far away from hayes as possible.

Sheila: How long am i supposed to wait out here?

Jack: 10 minutes. That’s all I’m asking. Go get hayes. I’ll let sheila in. We’ll meet in the middle. Give her her moment. She’ll be history.

Finn: That can’t happen.

Jack: Damn it, it has to.

Sheila: I wanna hold my grandson in my arms just once.

Jack: Just impossible. Finn and steffy would never allow it.

Sheila: Jack, you have to make it happen, then your secret will be safe. Your life will never change.

Finn: Dad, are you listening to me? Why do you care so much?

Jack: Because I want her out of our lives as much as steffy and the forresters do, believe me, and this is how we accomplish that. I know what I’m talking about, finn. I got rid of sheila before. Just give her this one moment, and we’ll never have to deal with her again.

Finn: There’s no way you can be sure of that.

[Door closes] Sorry. I couldn’t wait any longer.

Jack: You think barging in here without being invited is helping your cause?

Finn: You can’t be here. You gotta go.

Sheila: Well, it hurts me to hear you say that, but I understand. I really– I really do.

Sheila: You’ve heard nothing but terrible things about me, finn, but please listen to your father. He’s telling you the truth. I just wanted to see you one more time and hold my grandson. Look, we’re halfway there. I’m standing here. I’m looking at you. All that’s left is for you to put hayes in my arms. Please, finn. Just allow me this one thing. Moment of truth.

Quinn: Look, I know you don’t approve of me or particularly like me. You hate that my portrait is on the wall and that I’m back in this house.

Brooke: Eric never should have married you in the first place.

Quinn: Well, he did, brooke, for better or for worse. And that means sometimes challenges come up, and we face them together, right?

Eric: Absolutely.

Ridge: So just so I understand, so sleeping with another man is just another challenge?

Quinn: Are you gonna say that? I mean, what, your marriage to brooke has been smooth sailing this whole time? Neither of you has ever strayed? Yeah, I don’t think you wanna go there. Look, I appreciate that you always think about eric with concern, but he’s a grown man. And he doesn’t need you to dictate his life to him. Besides, there is a lot more going on here that you don’t know about, so if you really care about your father, you will just let him be.

[Jet roaring]

[Ding]

Pilot: Sorry, ladies, we’re still in a bit of a holding pattern. I’ll keep you updated when we’ll be airborne.

[Click]

Steffy: Okay, I think this is the universe telling me something. I can’t go. I can’t do this. I gotta be home with finn and the kids. I’m sorry to bail on you.

Hope: No, it’s okay. Go with your gut. I will handle the meeting.

Steffy: I owe you.

Hope: Don’t worry about it.

Steffy: Well, maybe I should call finn, tell him I’m on the way.

Hope: Or you could always surprise him.

Finn: I don’t wanna sound harsh, but you can’t be here.

Sheila: I understand. I really do. Steffy and the forresters think I’m evil incarnate. I’m sure steffy laid down the law saying that under no circumstances am I to go anywhere near you or hayes. But I’m here now. Steffy’s not. Jack told me that she’s– she’s out of town. She’s–she’s never gonna know that I saw my grandson.

Finn: I can’t betray steffy’s trust.

Sheila: You’re a good man, finn… an honorable one. I am so proud of you. You know, when I saw you at your wedding, it– it took my breath away. I’ve been waiting decades for that moment, though. I am–I am sorry that everyone was upset with my presence. I…I still wouldn’t have changed a thing. There’s something you need to know. Giving you away was the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life. You were wanted. Desperately wanted. I just wasn’t in a position to give you the life you deserved.

Finn: And I believe you.

Sheila: Then believe this, too. I never stopped loving you. I never stopped wanting to see you, and now I wanna see my grandson. Oh, I bet you he’s a looker, huh?

Finn: Yeah. Yeah, hayes is a little miracle.

Sheila: Well, who’s he look like, you or steffy?

Finn: Little of both.

Sheila: Well, let me see. Let me see for myself.

Finn: I’m sorry. I can’T.

Sheila: This is the only thing I’m gonna ask of you. Just wanna see my grandson just once. Is that– is that too much to ask? I just want the gift of experiencing holding my grandbaby in my arms, and then I’ll–I’ll be gone. Be gone forever. I’m your mom. Finn, I’m not gonna lie to you. So please, just… let me hold him. Please? Go get hayes and let me hold him.

Brooke: Eric, don’t you remember how you felt when you found out about quinn and carter? You were hurt, and you were betrayed. She had an affair with a man that you treat like family, that you work with every single day. How can you forgive her for that?

Eric: Okay, listen to me. Listen to me, both of you. A lot goes on in a life of a couple that’s not meant for public consumption, and you know it. Now I appreciate you coming here trying to protect me, but I don’t need that. Quinn is my wife. I love her. She lights up my world. She brings joy and passion to me and fulfillment, and I just hope to be able to give that back to her. Now you’ve expressed yourselves. Thank you very much. That’s enough.

Ridge: I’m sorry. Are you asking us to leave?

Eric: Yes, I am. Please go.

Brooke: Eric, please…

Eric: Brooke, please.

Brooke: …Think about what you’re doing here.

Eric: Please. Go.

[Door opens]

[Door closes]

Quinn: I’m sorry, sweetheart, that you had to go through that, just after you finally confessed to me about your E.D.

Eric: Yeah. You know, I meant what I said. I adore you. You’ve brought so much joy and passion into my life. I’m just afraid I’m not gonna be able to return it in kind.

Quinn: And I meant what I said. This is just another challenge, and we know how to work with those, right? Together as husband and wife. We’re gonna get through this.

Sheila: Look at you, how handsome you are, an accomplished doctor. I can’t believe that you actually came from me. I… I was in a troubled place back then, but there’s one thing that I did do that was good, and that was giving you up so that you wouldn’T… be tainted by my instability. You had a great life, I mean, being raised by li and jack, and I’m grateful. I really am grateful. I never could have given you that. I was too confused, too– too self-centered. But I’m not that woman anymore. But I can and I will put your wishes first. I’m not asking for a permanent place in your life, finn. I’m just asking for a moment, just a moment to hold my grandson. Please? Just let me hold hayes, and I will be gone. It’ll be like I was never here.

Finn: You swear that if i give you this, this moment, that you’ll leave? Steffy and the forresters, they will never have to worry about you again?

Sheila: Yes, I promise. I swear. Please, I…I’m begging you.

Finn: Yeah, I mean, I really shouldn’t do this, but I don’T…

[Sighs] I…fine. Okay? Just…fine.

Sheila: Thank you.

Finn: Wait here.

[Door opens]

Jack: You hold hayes, and then you disappear forever. I mean it, sheila. Don’t ever come back here again.

Sheila: Ohh.

Finn: I need to hear you say it. After this, you’ll leave, and you’ll never come back.

Sheila: I’ll leave, and I promise I’ll never come back. Oh. Oh. [Gasps] Oh. Thank you.

[Whispers] He’s so beautiful. I’m your grandma, hayes. And I have been dying to meet you.& I have. Hey. You take my breath away just like your daddy did. My grandson. Oh. My precious, perfect grandson. It’s my grandson, my family. Oh, finn, thank you so much.

Finn: Yeah.

[Seabirds calling in distance]

Steffy: [Sighs]

[Keys jangle]

Finn: I should take him. Yeah, you need to leave.

Sheila: No, please. Please let me just hold him a little longer. I just– I don’t ever wanna forget this exquisite little face.

Steffy: Finn? Baby, I just…

[Door closes] I couldn’t go to san francisco. I couldn’t deal with the fog.

[Gasps] Sheila!

[ Upbeat instrumental ]

Steffy: Sorry. Sorry. So sorry, okay.

Hope: Get stuck in traffic?

Steffy: Uh no, just uh, running late. I apologize.

Hope: Oh steffy, you have a lot going on. I appreciate you even being able to make this meeting.

Steffy: Yeah, I wish I could be more excited about going to san francisco.

Hope: Well, it must be hard to leave finn and the kids right now.

Steffy: You have no idea. I just keep imagining all the terrible things that could go wrong.

Finn: You want me to let sheila come in here to meet my son? You can’t be serious.

Jack: She won’t stay long.

Finn: Stay long? No. Dad. Absolutely not.

Jack: Just hear me out.

Finn: What you’re suggesting is crazy.

Jack: I don’t blame you for feeling that way. But I’m telling you, finn, it has to be done.

Sheila: It’s gonna happen. Today, I finally get to hold my grandson.

Quinn: This is nothing to be ashamed about.

Eric: But I am. I am ashamed. I’m ashamed that I let you believe you were the problem when there was so much else going on.

Quinn: Well, I mean, I thought you didn’t want me anymore, that you didn’t desire me–

Eric: But I do. I do. I did. But I was so ashamed and so embarrassed that I couldn’t want you and then not being able to do anything about it.

Quinn: It would have been okay.

Eric: I couldn’t talk to you about it. I couldn’t even say the words. Erectile dysfunction. It– it’s a joke! It’s a punch line! But it’s not! I can’t make love to my beautiful wife. I can’T.

Carter: Structuring the agreement this way protects us no matter what happens with the trade situation.

Ridge: You know what, man? We are very lucky to have your business mind.

Brooke: Somehow you always manage to close the deal.

Carter: Actually, there was one that uh… that just fell through and I’m not sure how you’re going to feel about it. I’m bringing it up because I want to prepare you. I imagine that when eric talks he’s gonna be very excited.

Ridge: Excited about what?

Carter: He called off the divorce from quinn.

Eric: I should have told you. I should have told you but I couldn’t talk about it!

Quinn: Oh eric. Come on, your life has been one crisis after another, after another for months. Starting with me and your family, I mean– that can affect anyone’s sex life. But we’re back together now and I’m sure, in time we’ll–

Eric: No, no, it’s not that simple. It’s not that simple!

Quinn: Are you sure?

Eric: Yes, I’m sure! It doesn’t matter how I feel. How much I want you, quinn. This isn’t going to change. You have to know that the man you came home to is not the man you married. I’m sorry!

Hope: You know, you’d think the kids would be the ones with the separation anxiety, but… nope.

[ Chuckling ]

Steffy: So, it’s not just me.

Hope: Absolutely not. I mean, it’s perfectly understandable that you would feel this way. It’s your first trip away from hayes. And you and finn, you’re still newlyweds.

Steffy: Okay when you put it that way I don’t even think I should be going on this trip.

[ Laughs ]

Hope: It will be fine. We’ll be back home tomorrow.

Steffy: I know this is a normal feeling but unfortunately, that’s not the only reason I’m nervous about going away.

Jack: Just give sheila this chance to meet hayes and you won’t have to worry about her anymore.

Finn: Dad, my in-laws are doing everything they can to make sure that will never happen.

Jack: I know– I know it seems like a risk–

Finn: Do you not understand how dangerous sheila is?

Jack: Yeah. I do. And I know I’m putting you in a difficult position but if you want to protect your family and keep sheila out of your lives, this is the way. Maybe the only way. Just give her this and she’ll be gone. Forever. I’ve lost count of how many asthma attacks I’ve had.

Brooke: Ugh, god. It had to be quinn. There’s no other way this could have happened. Eric wanted that divorce.

Ridge: That’s how I remember it. It’s got to be quinn, right?

Carter: I can assure you this is 100% eric’s decision.

Ridge: But how is it his decision? Has he seen quinn? She hasn’t been around the office!

Brooke: Has she been going over to his house? Has she been calling him?

Carter: No, no, I don’t think so. No.

Brooke: You’re his lawyer. Why would he have you draw up the papers if he wasn’t going to sign them?

Carter: He saw the papers and he started thinking about what he was doing and what he wanted.

Ridge: And what he wants now is quinn! Yeah?

Carter: I don’t blame you for being shocked. I was, too. And so was quinn. More than anyone.

Brooke: Oh my god, I don’t believe that for a second!

Carter: I was there when she saw her portrait. Her reaction was genuine. She was deeply moved.

Brooke: Yeah, because she was relieved. Her plan worked.

Carter: I’m telling you; this was eric’s decision. He’s fully committed to quinn, the marriage isn’t over and I hope you both can find a way to be happy for them, because I am.

[ Chuckles ]

Brooke: You are? You’re actually happy for them? You have no reservations about their reunion, whatsoever?

Quinn: This doesn’t change how I feel about you, the kind of man that you are.

Eric: It’s not what you expected.

[ Quinn chuckles ] It’s not what you expected when you decided to come home.

Quinn: I didn’t expect any of this. I thought our story was over. I didn’t even think I’d be welcome back in this house ever, even as a guest. But, you forgave me. That’s the kind of man that you are. Compassionate and understanding. It’s what drew me to you in the first place.

Eric: But we never had trouble in the bedroom.

Quinn: No, we didn’t until I screwed up. I broke promises to you–&

Eric: No, no, no, no. That’s not it. That’s not everything that happened. That’s what I want to tell you. Look, the reason I didn’t tell you how sexy you are and wonderful and how much I want you is because I couldn’t do anything about it–

Quinn: I understand–

Eric: And I’m afraid. I’m afraid. I’m afraid I’m never going to be able to again. …Oh god… oh, quinn. I’m sorry, I’m sorry.

Quinn: It’s okay, it’s okay.

Hope: It’s okay if you’d rather not talk about it.

Steffy: Well, I’ve never been good at avoiding the subject.

Hope: No. You take things head on. And I’m sure you’re handling sheila the same way.

Steffy: We’re trying to. But it definitely caught us off guard. We were ready to start our new life together. And now, finn and i have to protect our family from the most dangerous woman I’ve ever met.

[Ominous strings instrumental ]

[ Sheila sighs ]

Sheila: I want to look perfect today when I meet my family. I want little baby hayes to look up at me from my arms and just know that that’s the face of his grandmother.

Jack: Today is perfect. Steffy’s on a plane to san francisco. Kelly’s not here.

Finn: Kelly’s on a playdate. She’s gonna be gone all afternoon…

Jack: So, while you’re alone with hayes, sheila can stop by, hold her grandson and be gone before anyone’s the wiser. And then she’s out of our lives for good.

Finn: The forresters would be furious with us for even discussing this. There is no way I’m allowing sheila to come in here to see hayes. You can’t control what happens when they leave home,

Brooke: Eric ripped up the divorce papers and you’re not handling the case anymore, so you might as well tell us how you really feel.

Ridge: You’re closer to this than any of us.

Carter: Look, your father believes quinn is special. He sees a fascinating, beautiful, ambitious, accomplished woman and she brings excitement to his life. And he gives her a sense of stability and comfort. Look, when they were good together, they were very happy. So, if they get a second chance at that, then I wish them the best.

Brooke: Is that really what you’re hoping for? Because the way you’re talking about her… almost sounded like you were falling for her. Have you?

Eric: Look, I’m– I’m sorry. I didn’t realize how– how much I was pushing you away. And I pushed you away so far, that it drove you into the arms of another man… and I’m–

Quinn: I– I didn’t think you desired me anymore. I mean, every time I would reach out to you, I could feel you recoil.

Eric: You were reaching out for a connection, for– for touch– things that we all need.

Quinn: You know, there is more than one way to experience those things.

Eric: Yes, I know and– and… when I was looking at the divorce papers, I realized, “what am I doing? I love her. I don’t wan to divorce her.” And so I realized, I had to– I had to tell you– I had to tell you the truth.

Quinn: And I am so grateful that you did.

Eric: I’m the one who drove the wedge between us. I am!

Quinn: No, no, no, I don’t want to talk about who’s to blame anymore. You know, when you invited me to come back into this house, you said you wanted to move forward.

Eric: Yes, and I do. Quinn, I don’t want us to have to hide anything from each other. I don’t want us to hide things even if– I don’t want to keep any secrets, even things that we’re ashamed of. I want us to be completely honest and I want you to know I’m sorry. I’m so sorry.

Steffy: The pilot knows I’m on board.

Hope: I don’t know why we haven’t taken off yet but look, steffy, if there is anything I can do to make this trip easier for you, you just say let me know. I know you’re probably processing a lot right now, I mean, who could have imagined that sheila carter would turn out to be your husband’s birth mother?

[ Cellphone dinging ]

Jack: I already texted sheila. Told her to come over.

Finn: Dad, what you’re asking is out of the question.

Jack: No one will know.

Finn: You want me to do this thing and then lie about it? Dad, what has gotten into you? You know I can’t have sheila coming over here to see hayes. I won’t do it.

Jack: You have to.

Finn: Why? What’s going on? Why are you pushing for this?

Jack: Because so much is at stake, finn. More than you know.

Finn: What does that even mean? For who?

Jack: For all of us. Sheila’s unpredictable. You know, showing up on your wedding day, sneaking around the forrester house.

[ Romantic guitar instrumental ]

[ Birds caw ]

Steffy: How was your swim?

Finn: Oh, it was refreshing. I saw a whole pod of dolphins.

Steffy: You did? Oh, kelly would’ve loved that. Amelia took her and hayes to the park.

Finn: Oh, so does that mean I get my beautiful wife all to myself?

Steffy: I know… last night was amazing.

Finn: Mm.

Steffy: We really needed that.

Finn: Well yeah, especially since you’re leaving me for san francisco.

Steffy: I know, but it’s only for a night. I have to go with hope. You know, deal with hope for the future. I hate being away from you and the kids.

Finn: Me too, but I’ll be here holding down the fort.

Steffy: I know you will. It just makes me feel uneasy that sheila’s out there… somewhere.

Sheila: You know, I kept quiet about our affair… and about finn all of finn’s life.

Jack: What do you want, sheila? What do you want?

Sheila: All I want to do is see finn, one more time and to see my grandson and hold him in my arms and then I am out of your life, forever.

Li: What are you gonna do, jack?

Jack: What?

Li: You said you were going to call room service. You wanted breakfast.

Jack: No. I mean, yeah, sure.

Li: Hey, what is it? You’ve been preoccupied since last night.

Jack: I’m sorry.

Li: There’s something obviously troubling you. Does it have anything to do with finn’s birth mother?

[ Romantic piano instrumental ]

Quinn: Eric? There you are.

Eric: Hi. Hi. I– I owe you an apology.

Quinn: For what?

Eric: For falling asleep last night. I’m sorry. Our first night home, us together… and I disappoint you once again.

Quinn: I’ll admit I had very different plans for us last night. I came down here ready for us to celebrate.

Eric: Yeah, and I had already conked out. The last martini got to me, I guess.

Quinn: Ah well, it happens to the best of us. I was a little tipsy myself.

Eric: Yeah? You were fast asleep when I went upstairs.

Quinn: Well, you could’ve woken me up.

Eric: But you were sleeping so… soundly, I didn’t want to disturb.

Quinn: It felt so good to be back in our bed. But we can just make up for it tonight.

Li: Jack. It’s okay. You’ve been honest and truthful with me our entire marriage. The only secret you kept was that finn’s birth mother approached you after we adopted finn. Do I wish you had told me back then? Yes, of course, I do. But I can forgive that. I know you were only just trying to protect us. I love you.

[ Knocking ]

Sheila: Hey keith!

Carter: Miss carter.

Sheila: Uh, is there something wrong?

Keith: I see you’re extending your stay?

Sheila: Yes. Yes, there’s somebody very important I need to see before I leave.

Finn: We agreed to put sheila out of our minds and focus on the two of us.

Steffy: I know, but I can’t stop thinking about her. Like, that’s the problem. That’s the kind of power she has over all of us.

Finn: No, she doesn’T. She doesn’t have that power over you, me, or our children. None. What she did to your family in the past… we’re breaking that cycle. Alright? Right here, right now. We can’t let sheila ruin another moment of our happiness. An amusement park is like whooping cough,

Li: You must have been shocked when you learned of what she’d done.

Jack: It was a long time ago, li. There wasn’t much on the internet back then. I only got a glimpse of who she was or what she was capable of.

Li: Sounds like she’s become progressively more dangerous over the years.

Jack: I couldn’t have predicted the lengths she’d go to.

Li: Shooting at people? My god. Kidnapping?

Jack: You know, it’s only now that I realize how unstable she was. I’ll do whatever it takes to protect our family.

Li: I know you’re just as wary of her as I am, jack.

Jack: We won’t have to deal with her. Don’t think or worry about sheila ever again.

Sheila: Would you like to come in?

Keith: You’re kind of, uh… mysterious.

Sheila: And I get the feeling you want your room back.

Keith: You’ve been here awhile. I don’t want to pry, but… this person you want to see before you leave town. I’m assuming it’s a guy?

Sheila: As a matter of fact, yes.

Keith: That’s what I thought. Big date?

Sheila: I hope so.

[ Chuckles ]

Keith: If you need any restaurant recommendations, there are a lot of good places to eat around here.

Sheila: Thank you, but I’m familiar. I don’t think we’re going to be meeting at a restaurant.

Keith: This guy, um… older or younger? If you don’t mind me asking.

Sheila: Younger. Actually, much younger.

Keith: Well, okay. Okay, good for you. Either way, it seems like he means a lot.

Sheila: Yeah, he’s very special to me.

Keith: Been a long time since you’ve seen one another?

Sheila: Actually uh, we’ve never met.

Keith: So a blind date? You– you meet on an app, or…? Is a friend fixing you up?

Sheila: Well, it’s– it’s an acquaintance that’s going to introduce us.

Keith: Cool.

Shila: Yeah. It is. I can hardly wait to meet this little guy.

Steffy: Oh, my sweet baby boy. He and kelly are my whole world. And I’m leaving them?

Finn: Well, you’re leaving for like twenty four hours.

Steffy: Look how cute they look in this photo. How can they be so adorable?

Finn: Well, because they’re half of you, that’s why. Hm?

Steffy: I don’t know if I can do this. I don’t know.

Finn: You’re going to be fine.

Steffy: Then, why do i feel so guilty?

Finn: Because it’s been all about the kids lately. You have a meeting to attend, you have a business to run. And look, you love your work. Right? This is going to be good for you.

Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, I want to get back into it and everything, it’s just– I think it’s hitting me harder because of all the, the other stuff…

Finn: My birth mother. Okay.

Steffy: Yeah.

Finn: I promise you, steffy, sheila, she’s gone. She’s out of our lives. Don’t give her another thought.

Quinn: So, we missed out on one night. We have so many more evenings ahead of us.

Eric: We do. We have our whole lives together. I’m so grateful for that. And I’m so grateful that you came back.

Quinn: I’m so happy you still believe in us.

Eric: I do. With all my heart.

Quinn: So why– why do I get the feeling that there’s something still wrong.

Eric: I– I’m sorry. I don’t mean to– I don’t mean to make you feel that way.

Quinn: Look, we can take our time with this, you know. I get it. We don’t need to rush into anything–

Eric: It’s not time. I don’t need more time. It’s just that there’s– there’s something that, um– there’s something I should’ve confessed to you before I asked you to come back and live with me. Smooth dark chocolate, refreshing peppermint,

Steffy: Are you sure you’re going to be okay while I’m gone?

Finn: Of course! We’re going to have a great time– it’s just gonna be a wild party.

Steffy: Really?

Finn: Mm-hm.

Steffy: You’re gonna pop some bottles?

Finn: Oh yeah. It’s gonna be, uh, vip bottle service like you’ve never seen. We got top-shelf milk, imported juice boxes.

Steffy: Really? You have dj kelly on the mic?

[ Imitates record scratching ]

Finn: Yeah, yeah, if she’s game. I mean, you know how she gets. She can be a bit of a diva. I don’t know if we can book her.

Steffy: Yeah, she’s really bossy. She’s gonna be bossing you around while I’m gone.

Finn: Mm. Well, I’m gonna do anything I can to make that kid happy. And everything to put her mom at ease.

Steffy: I believe you. I trust your judgment.

Finn: Well good because you and the kids are my number one priority. Everything I do, every decision I make, is with your guys’ best interest at heart.

Steffy: I’m glad we’re on the same page, especially when it’s dealing with sheila.

Finn: I understand how critical it is to keep her far away.

Steffy: I love you.

Finn: I love you. Okay.

Steffy: Mm-hm?

Finn: One more. Go.

Jack: Sheila won’t be part of our lives anymore.

Li: How can you be sure?

Jack: Because I won’t allow it. You know how much I love you.

Li: I have a pretty good idea.

Jack: You’ve been so patient and understanding. Especially throughout this whole sheila ordeal.

Li: I’m just glad it’s over with. She’s moved on and so have we.

Jack: I’m such a lucky man that you agreed to be my wife all those years ago…

Li: You know, you’re real cute when you get mushy, you know that?

Jack: That’s why you married me.

Li: Yeah.

[ Dramatic instrumental ]

[ Tapping ]

[ Cellphone whistling ]

Eric: I don’t want to worry you but you deserve to know the why of what happened between us the last few months.

Quinn: Okay…

Eric: When– when i was being so cold to you, so… non-communicative. And when I pushed you away, I pushed you right into carter’s arms. It really wrecked me but I came to understood that you were in need of passion and tenderness. You wanted to feel desired like anybody would.

Quinn: Eric, I was hoping we wouldn’t have to keep bringing this up. We’re back together. Things are better than ever…

Eric: They could’ve been better last night. I don’t want there ever to be any mistaking how much I love you, how beautiful I think you are, how much I desire you.

Quinn: Eric, I know–

Eric: I mean, you’re this incredibly passionate, beautiful woman and I love you so much. And I want you. I always want you but I… I can’T… trusted by pet owners for over 20 years

Quinn: Whatever you’re dealing with… you’re not alone. We can handle it, together. You have no idea how much you have transformed my life. And I’m going to show you how much you mean to me tonight, tomorrow night and every night after that.

Eric: I want that so much… but I can’T.

Quinn: Why not, sweetheart?

Eric: Quinn, it’s– it’s so humiliating. I can– I can hardly say the words. But.. I have, um…

Quinn: Have what?

Eric: I have, uh. I have… erectile dysfunction. I can’t– I can’t– I can’t make love to you.

[ Knocking ]

Jack: Finn?

Finn: Dad. I didn’t know you were stopping by.

Jack: I thought I’d surprise you!

Finn: Oh, that’s great. You uh, you just missed steffy. She’s on her way up to san francisco.

Jack: Oh yeah. You told me earlier on the phone, remember? First trip since the baby. So uh, you’re all alone?

Finn: Yeah. Paris is at work. And the nanny’s dropping off kelly at a playdate.

Jack: What about the baby?

Finn: In the nursery. Just got home from the park.

Jack: So you’re officially on dad duty.

Finn: Yeah, well I’m always on dad duty. But, today I got ’em all to myself today.

Jack: I’m proud of you, son. Just the way you settled into parenthood… this new life.

Finn: Honestly, I’ve never been happier.

Jack: It shows.

Finn: Where’s mom?

Jack: She’s back at the hotel. Just thought I’d pop by and say hi and tell you again how sorry I am.

Finn: You don’t need to.

Jack: No, no, no, no, no. I should have told you earlier about your birth mother. And believe me, I’m regretting that mistake.

Finn: Yeah, you should’ve but you know what? It’s over. It’s done with. I’d rather not dwell on all this. It seems like all we’ve talked about, steffy and I, is sheila showing up at our wedding reception.

Jack: I feel terrible about that. But I am convinced that sheila will soon be out of our lives.

Finn: Soon? No, dad, she’s–. It’s done. She’s– she’s gone. Wait, are you–? She didn’t reach out to you or something? Did she?

Jack: Yeah.

Finn: She– I hope you didn’t– I hope you didn’t respond.

Jack: Yeah, I did. Ended up seeing her.

Finn: You saw her.

Jack: Yeah, I told her to stay out of our lives. She swore she’d leave town and not cause anymore trouble for our family.

Finn: Okay. Okay, that’s what everyone wants. Did you get through to her?

Jack: To some degree…

Finn: Wait, what is that supposed to mean?

Jack: Sheila has agreed to leave town… on one condition: She wants to see you again… and she wants to hold her grandson.

[Ominous strings instrumental]

[ Sheila sighs ]

[ Lullaby plays ]

Sheila: My grandson. Grandma loves you, sweetheart.

[ Suspenseful instrumental ] You better make it happen, jack. Or else.

Finn: Do you hear that?

Steffy: Oh, not a peep from kelly and hayes. Oh, nice.

Finn: Mm-hmm. Meaning, um, mom and dad have a little time to themselves.

Steffy: Mm-hmm.

Finn: Mm-hmm.

Steffy: I definitely want that. I do. But there is something we really need to talk about.

Finn: What?

Steffy: I’m sorry, but it’s– it’s sheila. I can’t help it, but I really want you to know that… I don’t blame you for her showing up. I don’T.

Sheila: You don’t wanna mess with me, not when it comes to my son. You and your doting wife, you had finn all these years. Now it’s my turn.

Jack: What do you mean by that?

Sheila: I want finn to have the opportunity to get to know me and me him.

Jack: No, you don’T. Because the more he learns about you, the more appalled he’ll be.

Sheila: He’s only heard one side of the story– the forresters biased side. Once I get to spend more time with my son, I know–

Jack: Finn’s my son and li’S.

Sheila: No. He’s your son with me. We had the affair, remember? I’m the one that gave birth to him. You’re the one that talked me into giving him up so that you and li could raise him as your own. Li doesn’t even know anything about this. My god, she has no idea that her husband ever cheated on her.

Jack: Well, that was then. This is now. Finn’s a grown man.

Sheila: Yeah, who erroneously believes that… you are his adopted father, a man that he loves and admires, but I really wonder how he would feel if he knew that he was lied to all these years. Because you told me that that’s what would be best for everyone, and I believed it. But now I’m really not so sure.

Ridge: Whoa. Is, um– is that my, uh, shirt?

Brooke: Just thought I’d try something a little different tonight.

Ridge: You know what’s funny? I was gonna wear that right now. Can I have it? Please.

Brooke: You want something?

Ridge: Mm-hmm.

Brooke: I want something too. I want you to brush my hair. And tonight is the night that you deliver, mr. Forrester.

Ridge: Uh-huh. Okay.

[ Chuckles ]

Brooke: [ Laughs ]

Ridge: Oh, yeah, yeah. That’s right.

Brooke: Yes. My hair. Mmm.

Ridge: That’s what I like. Us here together.

Brooke: Mmm.

Ridge: You’re happy. Your daughter’s happy. My daughter’s happy. Just one thing to worry about.

Brooke: Mmm. Oh. Oh. Don’t stop ever.

Ridge: I have no intention of stopping ever. You stopped.

Ridge: Hmm?

Brooke: What is it? Is it sheila?

Ridge: I’m sorry. I can’t help it. Just the idea of this woman’s dna running through my grandson. It makes me so angry that steffy should be tormented by it.

Finn: Hey, I know you don’t blame me. Okay? You never need to say that again.

Steffy: Look, I know none of what sheila has done reflects on you. Finn, I love you so much. You’re selfless and you’re loving, and you are the kind of man everyone looks up to. Our son’s gonna look up to you. You’re nothing like sheila. She’s selfish and deceitful.

Finn: Hey. Don’t go there, okay? Don’t think about sheila or anything to do with her. Especially not tonight. Tonight is about you and me.

Sheila: You know, I kept quiet about our affair and about finn of all finn’s life.

Jack: Look, why are you dredging this up? This is ancient history.

Sheila: Well, maybe it is to you, but it isn’t to me. You know, for me, it was like yesterday that we were lovers, and we were wrapped in each other’s arms until I became pregnant. No, and then you convinced me that it would be better for everybody if I were to give you my child, and that’s something I will never forget, jack. Never. Especially since I met finn.

Jack: What do you want from me, sheila? What do you want? What’s the #1 retinol brand

Ridge: Oh, yes.

Brooke: Mmm.

Ridge: Oh, just keep going. Yes, a little bit lower. Oh, yes. Okay, how did this happen? I was brushing your hair, and next thing I know, you’re rubbing my shoulders.

Brooke: You need to relax and unwind. And I’m helping you.

Ridge: You know what, honey? I’m not a doctor, but… what would really help me right now is if…

Brooke: Well, that happens a little bit later, I promise.

Ridge: Oh, okay. Mmm.

Brooke: Okay. You’re tensing up again. Come on.

Ridge: I just think I should be doing more.

Brooke: You’re doing everything imaginable. You hired security for the family houses. You got carter started on the process of getting that restraining order.

Ridge: I know, I know. We’re doing everything. I know. I get that. But none of it’s gonna mean anything if finn wants to have a connection with that woman.

Finn: Hayes hasn’t moved in a while. Should we check on him?

Steffy: No. His foot moved. He’s still dreaming. He’s fine.

Finn: And so are we. This whole thing about my mother… I know I said we don’t need to think about her, but I wanna reassure you, steffy, I will never let anyone harm our family.

Steffy: I know that. I do. But we are talking about sheila, and you don’t know what I lived through, what my family’s lived through. There’s so much heartache and suffering, and it was all because of her. So she showed up at our reception, and she ruined it. She’s hayes’s grandmother. Like, we don’t– we haven’t even gone to the courthouse to file our marriage certificate. There’s just so much going on. I just–

Finn: Listen to me. Everything is gonna be okay. We are gonna raise hayes. We’re gonna keep him safe and out of harm’s way because that’s what parents do.

Steffy: Oh, we’re dealing with sheila, and you don’t know how dangerous she can be. We have to keep hayes safe, and the only way to do that is to keep her away from our son.

Finn: I know.

Steffy: I’m sorry it has to be this way. Tell me you understand. Promise me you’re not gonna have any contact with sheila. Not now. Not ever. I just don’t wanna think about her. It’s too much.

Finn: I know.

Sheila: It’s simple really. I believe finn and I could have a close, loving mother-son relationship if given the opportunity.

Jack: There can be no relationship between you and finn.

Sheila: Oh, god. Do you know what this reminds me of? This is identical to the way you would talk to me and tell me how things were going to be when I was pregnant, when I was pregnant with finn. I was vulnerable, and you– you took advantage of that.

Jack: What are you talking about?

Sheila: You got into my head, jack. You knew I was vulnerable. You exploited me. I remember you telling me how you and li were trying to get pregnant and you couldn’T. I thought it was some twist of fate that I was able to conceive and that that was your opportunity for you and li to raise my son as your own.

Jack: It was best for everyone.

Sheila: You know what? You told me that too, repeatedly, before and after I had our son. Of course it couldn’t be a regular adoption. No, you had to make sure everything was perfect so that you were actually adopting our child. Finn’s whole life has been based on lies, and your marriage to li has been too.

Jack: Damn it, sheila. What do you want from me? Why did you really come here? (Vo) nature…

Brooke: Mmm.

[ Sighs ] I think finn understands that he can’t be near sheila.

Ridge: Well, I hope he does. I just don’t trust that woman.

Brooke: Yeah. Of course not. None of us do. Do you know what?

Ridge: Hmm.

Brooke: I think it’s time to stop thinking about this and focus on something else.

Ridge: Oh, boy. Hi. Well, you got my attention.

Brooke: Good. I don’t want you to worry anymore.

Ridge: Uh-huh.

Brooke: I want you to focus right here.

Ridge: I’m focused.

Brooke: On us. Mmm. You… and me.

Ridge: [ Grunts ]

Brooke: Oh!

Steffy: It’s hope. She’s reminding me about that meeting we have tomorrow in san francisco.

Finn: That’s still on?

Steffy: Yeah. I wish we could postpone it. I don’t wanna be away even if it’s for a day. I’m just not–

Finn: Repeat after me. “Finn and the kids will be fine while I’m gone tomorrow.” It’s either that or, um, all this talking has me getting pretty tired.

Steffy: You wouldn’T.

Finn: Oh. Try me.

Steffy: Okay. Finn and the kids will be fine while I’m away tomorrow. You satisfied?

Finn: Good.

Jack: I never should’ve gotten involved with you and betrayed my marriage.

Sheila: Yeah. Well, one wonderful thing did happen out of it, didn’t it? Finn. Of course when I gave him to you and I reached out, you shut me down completely. After all that time of watching him grow, and you never once tried to contact me, not even on his wedding day.

Jack: We hadn’t spoken in decades. I didn’t know if you were alive or dead.

Sheila: Oh, well, I am so sorry to disappoint.

Jack: My point is I now realize I should’ve told everyone about you sooner. I won’t be manipulated by you.

Sheila: By me?

Jack: I think it’s high time that I told finn and li the truth– that I’m finn’s biological father.

Sheila: That would destroy your marriage and your relationship with our son. I kept your secret all these years, and I’ll continue to keep it. It’s just one thing that I want–one thing– in return for my silence.

 

Both: Oh, god!

Brooke: [ Sighs ] Now, I sense it worked, huh?

Ridge: What?

Brooke: My strategy to distract you from a certain psychologically crazy person.

Ridge: Yeah, that worked.

Brooke: Yeah?

Ridge: Especially that thing you did with that… but you’re still here.

Brooke: Yes, yes. But we have to focus on the positive. Steffy is married to an amazing man. They have a beautiful child. And nobody is going to tear that family apart. Not even sheila.

[ Both chuckle ]

Steffy: What?

Finn: Nothing. I just… I’m married to the most beautiful woman in the world. A woman who also happens to be the mother of the sweetest, cutest, most adorable newborn. A woman that I love more than I ever thought possible. And I will always make sure that no one ever interferes with our family and our happiness.

Sheila: I’m sure steffy told finn never to see me again.

Jack: Do you blame her after what you did to her and her family and what you’re threatening to do to mine?

Sheila: You’re the one that said that a relationship with finn and me would never be possible. But for me to keep quiet about what I know, to leave here and never return, before that happens, I wanna hold my grandson in my arms just once.

Jack: That’s impossible. Finn and steffy would never allow it.

Sheila: Well, then you have to convince them. Jack, you have to make it happen, and then your secret will be safe. Your life will never change. All I want to do is see finn one more time and to see my grandson and hold him in my arms, and then I am out of your life forever.

Jack: You’ve caused so much trouble. How can I possible believe you?

Sheila: Because I’m telling you the truth, I swear. My god, jack, after everything that I’ve given up, how can you deny me this? I just want to see my son one more time and hold my grandson. I wanna cradle hayes in my arms, and I wanna look at that precious little face just once. Is that really too much to ask for everything that you’re going to get in return?

Jack: I’ll speak with finn.

Steffy: That was quick.

Finn: I didn’t even get through one page and Kelly fell asleep.

Steffy: Well, the beach definitely wore her out.

Finn: Her? I’m exhausted. Can you tell me again why I suggested tag?

Steffy: Yeah, I know. That girl can run.

Finn: I think she’ll be a future track star.

Steffy: Just think. When Hayes gets older and they’re both gonna be running around, we’re really gonna be tired.

Finn: Hmm. Well, see, that’s the beauty of having two–they can chase each other and we can watch in the distance, hand in hand.

[Glasses chime]

Steffy: I like the way you think.

Finn: Happy?

Steffy: I am. I just… I just wish, um…

Finn: Hmm. That… someone else, anyone else, was my birth mother?


[Knocking on door]

Jack: Sheila.

Sheila: Jack. How’d you find me?

Jack: Doesn’t matter.

Sheila: What do you want?

Jack: You need to leave town. Tonight.


Quinn: Somehow, um, Eric found it in his heart to forgive me. He says he loves me. He doesn’t want the marriage to end. He says he wants me back.

Carter: Be with him, Quinn. Go home. I want this for you. I know Eric can give you a wonderful, fulfilling life.

Eric: Hey. Back where it belongs. More importantly… so are you.

Quinn: Hmm.

Eric: Hmm.


Eric: A part of me was afraid that you might, uh– you might turn me down.

Quinn: Turn down one of your martinis? Have I ever?

Eric: [Chuckles] No, uh, turn down coming home. I was afraid maybe enough time had passed that you had decided to move on. But I should’ve known that you wanted our marriage to survive just as much as I did. To us.

Quinn: To us.

[Glasses chime]


Sheila: I know you’re upset, but you can’t just order me to leave.

Jack: Why would you stay? Nobody wants you here. It’s not like you’ll ever have a relationship with Finn or Hayes. Steffy made that clear.

Sheila: Well, maybe it’s not gonna be up to Steffy.

Jack: Well, I’m saying it, too. Stay away from Finn, from all of them. I knew you were trouble years ago, that much was clear. But after what I heard from the Forresters, there’s no place for you in my son’s life, Sheila. None.


Steffy: I don’t want to dwell on Sheila. I don’t want to obsess about her. But she’s related to you. And to our son.

Finn: It’s okay… if you are obsessing. I mean, it makes sense. The things that she’s done, I can only imagine how shocking it was to find out the woman that terrorized your family and took so much from you… turns out to be your mother-in-law?

Steffy: Hmm.


Eric: The only good thing about being here alone is that I’ve been playing a lot of piano. I got out a lot of music, most of which I cannot play. But this, um, is a bunch of old songs. I’m gonna play one of them for you.

Quinn: Ooh!

Eric: Yeah, I think you’ll like it. It’s a nice old song. Older than I am.

Quinn: Oh, ho.

Eric: But then all this stuff is.

Quinn: [Chuckles]

[Eric begins playing]

🎶🎵 I’ll be loving you always with a love that’s true always when the things you’ve planned need a helping hand
I will understand it always always days may not be fair always that’s when I’ll be there always not for just an hour
not for just a day not for just a year but always 🎶🎵

[Quinn hits last note, laughs]

Quinn: Oh, that was beautiful. I wish I could play like you. I wish I could…carry a tune even just to let you know how happy I am to be home.

Eric: I can see that. I can see that in your eyes.

Quinn: You can?

Eric: Yeah. I think I’ve been married to you long enough to know what you’re feeling inside just by looking at you.

Quinn: Then I guess what you see is my commitment and my devotion. And it won’t waver. Ever again.


Finn: I was just so thrilled. I assumed you all would be too. But, the looks on your faces… [Chuckles]

Steffy: Sheila knew how we were gonna react. That’s what you need to understand. She knew and she didn’t care. She wanted to disrupt our day.

Finn: She didn’t intend on interacting with any of you. All right? She said she wanted to leave, that she just wanted to make sure that… I knew she loved me.

Steffy: I know you want to believe her. I understand, but… you have to realize all the heartache she’s caused me and my family. Babe, please stay as far away from Sheila as possible. For all our sakes.


Sheila: Finn’s an adult. He can make his own decisions as to who he wants to allow in his life.

Jack: He’s a good man, Sheila. Honest and caring. I won’t let you take advantage of that. Especially now that he knows the truth.

Sheila: Wait, the truth?

Jack: You need to do yourself a favor. Do us all a favor and leave.

Sheila: And what if I don’t want to go?

Jack: Do the right thing for your son, and get as far away from him as possible. You knew that was the right thing for the baby, didn’t you?

Sheila: So much has changed.

Jack: Not this! You’re not interfering in my son’s life, in his family. I won’t have it.


Quinn: Oh, no, no, no. Am I boring you?

Eric: My wonderful Quinn, you are many, many things. You are never boring.

Quinn: [Chuckles]

Eric: I’m sorry. Been a long day.

Quinn: Hmm.

Eric: It’s been a wonderful day.

Quinn: It certainly has. And I think I know… the perfect way to end it. I’m gonna head upstairs and…get ready for bed. Care to join me? Hmm?

Eric: Yeah. I’ll be up shortly.

Quinn: Okay.

Eric: I, uh– I’m so glad we did not give up on us.

Quinn: [Sighs] I was afraid I was gonna have to. I was preparing for a very different life. But a life without you? Hmm. No. This is where I’m supposed to be.


Finn: I have to admit, it is pretty painful, knowing that I came from someone who caused so much harm.

Steffy: Yeah, I don’t throw the word “evil” around lightly, but… I’m sorry. I know you had high hopes.

Finn: I did. Don’t worry about me. I mean, not all dreams are supposed to come true, right? I’m really gonna be fine. Let’s focus on us– our marriage and our family and our future together.

Steffy: A future that doesn’t involve Sheila. There’s no room for her here. Never will be.


Sheila: Telling me what I can and cannot do? It’s not a smart idea.

Jack: Neither is interfering with my son and his family.

Sheila: I adhered to the adoption agreement, and I kept silent about who I was, but I don’t need to be silent anymore. Now that I’ve met Finn, I can have a relationship with my son the way that it should be.

Jack: Over my dead body.

Sheila: I don’t see why it needs to come to that.

Jack: [Laughs] Was that a threat?

Sheila: You’re the one that’s been threatening me, telling me to get out of town.

Jack: Stay away from Finn, you hear me? From his wife. From his child.

Sheila: You don’t think I know why you’re really here, panicking, lashing out?

Jack: What father wouldn’t be panicking? Learning some psychopath is worming her way into his son’s life?

Sheila: Is that really why you panicked? Huh. Or was it the look on your lovely wife’s face, that hurt expression, when ridge was questioning you about me when he was berating you for keeping quiet? It was a good cover, though. I knew she was involved. I just didn’t know as to what extent. Please.

Jack: Cover? No, Sheila. That was the truth.

Sheila: You know what? Half-truths are still lies, Jack. And you didn’t have the guts to say what you were really thinking, did you? The reason you have kept quiet about me all these years.


Quinn: Eric. Eric, sweetheart. I’ve been waiting. Sleep well, my love.


Carter: I hold on to what you’ve given me, Quinn, but you don’t need me to tell you what you need to do.

Quinn: So this is goodbye? Carter, I love you.

Carter: I love you, too.


Eric: [Sighs]


Steffy: I warned you. We all warned you. [Chuckles]

Finn: You did, and I laughed it off. I thought there is no way an infant could be as tiring as med school.

Steffy: Lesson learned. Your wife is right about everything.

Finn: [Chuckles]

Steffy: Not just about parenting. Everything.

Finn: I learned that a long time ago. I always listen to my wife.

Steffy: Especially when it comes to Sheila, all the danger she poses.

Finn: Including Sheila. I won’t let her hurt us. I promise you. I won’t let anyone or anything hurt our family.


Sheila: Yeah, your wife seemed pretty upset that you didn’t tell her about me. Imagine how she’d feel if she found out there was so much to know, so much more. The embarrassment that I could have caused you, I think a little gratitude is warranted.

Jack: All right. Tell you what. You disappear, never contact Finn again, and I’ll send you a “thank you” note, maybe some flowers.

Sheila: Oh. Just like old times. You know, don’t pretend that you’ve forgotten. You used to go to the hospital to see your wife and catch my eye. You kissed on the cheek and not five minutes later, you’d be taking me into the supply closet.

Jack: Stop.

Sheila: You would feign disappointment when she had a double shift to pull. Remember that?

Jack: I said stop.

Sheila: But in reality– Li seems like a good woman.

Jack: Yeah.

Sheila: Very kind and devoted. I really wonder how devoted she would be if she found out that her husband got another woman pregnant and then convinced her to adopt his bastard son.

Jack: You wouldn’t do that.

Sheila: You have no idea what I would do, what I’m capable of. You don’t tell me to leave town. You don’t tell me you’re going to the Forresters. In fact, you don’t tell me anything. I’m the one calling the shots. You understand that? I kept your dirty little secret. I protected you. I stayed away from my son. But no more. Now that he’s in my life, I’m not going anywhere. Don’t you dare try to come between me and my son. Don’t you do it. Because if you do, if you try, you’re gonna regret it.

Quinn: This isn’t how I imagined this moment.

Carter: We didn’t expect any of this, so… why should it end any different?

Quinn: Talking about the other part. What we said.

Carter: Eric tore up the divorce papers. He wants you back. He loves you.

Quinn: So do you. I always knew that we felt it. We just never said the words.

Carter: Maybe i shouldn’t have… but I wanted you to know when you looked back on this that what we shared, that it was real. But your marriage isn’t over, quinn. You should go home. Be eric’s wife.

Eric: What do you think? Do you like it?

Quinn: Like it?

[Chuckles] I love it! Love you.

Eric: I love you. Mrs. Forrester.

Quinn: [Laughs]

Paris: [Sighs] If you really don’t want steffy to know that sheila texted you, I won’t say anything.

Finn: Thank you, paris.

Paris: I just–I’m not totally sure that keeping this from your wife is a great idea for either of us.

Finn: Sheila’s gone. That was a goodbye text. And telling steffy, that’s just gonna make her more anxious. She’s already hired another guard for the property.

Paris: Finn…I’m sorry that meeting your birth mother has been so hard, and if you really think that this is the best way to handle this, I won’t say anything.

Paris: Oh. Uh, hey, guys.

Steffy: Hey. What’s going on?

Carter: Eric’s waiting.

Quinn: [Sighs] We can’t show up at the house together.

Carter: No. No, I’ll go. He…wants me to bring your portrait.

Quinn: Carter…

Carter: Quinn, this is what you wanted. When you came here to talk to me about zoe, you told me how important he makes you feel. How much…his respect and admiration meant to you and you thought you lost it but you didn’T. You got it. You got eric back. Your future’s with him.

Quinn: But I had something incredible with you, too.

Carter: Yes, it was, and I’ll never forget it.

Quinn: Neither will I.

Carter: But you love your husband.

Quinn: And I love you, too.

Quinn: [Whimpers]

Quinn: [Sobbing]

Paris: Oh, uh, you know, I’m gonna let you guys talk. I’m gonna head to the office. Will you excuse me? Sorry.

Steffy: Is everything okay with paris?

Finn: Yeah. Yeah. Um… this whole thing has got everyone thrown a little off balance, but, we had a good talk. She understands what’s going on, and… how it needs to be handled.

Ridge: You guys talked about sheila?

Shauna: Finn loves me. He loves his mother. Rinsing the dishes before they go in the dishwasher?

Eric: I appreciate you so much bringing this– this portrait back to me. Let’s just put it right there.

Carter: Okay.

Eric: It looks good. Thanks for taking such good care of it for me.

Carter: Well, I– I know when you told me to get rid of it, you didn’t really mean for me to get rid of it.

Eric: Yeah, well, I hate to admit it but at the time, I did. It would’ve been a big mistake. Would you help me put it back up?

Carter: Of course.

Eric: You’re not surprised at all? You’re not gonna ask me what changed?

Carter: Well, I–I have to admit I was a little surprised. I…thought you and quinn were signing divorce papers today.

Eric: Well, I tore them up. I couldn’t do it.

Carter: You still love her.

Eric: I didn’t realize how much until I had to contemplate a life… a future without her.

Carter: She’s your wife.

Eric: Our family’s gonna think I’m crazy.

Carter: [Chuckles] Well, they’re protective of you, eric. They blame her for your unhappiness and they– they saw our involvement as confirmation that she’s not trustworthy, that she’s not worthy of you.

Eric: But that’s not true, is it? And I suspect you agree with me. I mean, why else would you have taken such good care of this portrait?

Paris: Ooh, whatcha working on? Oh, it’s beautiful.

Zende: Thank you. I thought you were hanging at the house with finn.

Paris: Yeah, uh, steffy and ridge are there now.

Zende: Everything okay?

Paris: You know finn. He just wants to protect his family. Doesn’t want them to worry about all this with sheila being his birth mother.

Zende: You know, it’s good that he has somebody like you to open up to.

[Knocking on door]

Finn: I’ll get it. It’s my parents. Hey, guys.

Li: Hi, everyone. I hope it’s okay if we just stop by.

Steffy: Of course. Please, sit.

Ridge: Thank you. Jack.

Jack: Good to see you. Well, I’m, uh, glad you’re all here. Wanted to apologize again. You have to understand, I hadn’t heard from her since finn was little.

Li: Still can’t believe you never told me.

Jack: I didn’t want to worry you. I mean, if she had bothered us, but I never heard from her again. I assumed I never would.

Ridge: Well, you can’t assume anything about sheila.

Sheila: Let’s see what I can find. Doctor john…finnegan.

Carter: I think that looks right.

Eric: Perfect, in fact. Thank you. Nice, carter.

Carter: Well, I’m glad I could help and to hear your good news.

Eric: Well, I wanted to share it. Especially with you.

Carter: Me? Really?

Eric: Yeah. I didn’t ask you to represent me in the divorce just as some kind of a test, you know.

Carter: Yeah, I know that.

Eric: I wanted to prove to you my, uh– my faith in your good judgment. And you’ve proven me right by taking such good care of the portrait. I thank you again.

Carter: Eric, I don’t know how you’re able to get past this, but…thank you for giving me a second chance and for giving quinn one, too.

Eric: This time it’s gonna last.

Carter: So I’m sure you have a big celebration planned, so I’m gonna get out of your hair. [ Laughs ]

Eric: Okay. Thanks again, carter.

Carter: Of course.

Quinn: Carter.

Carter: Hi.

Quinn: Are you on your way out?

Carter: Yeah.

Eric: I was just telling carter our good news.

Quinn: It’s quite a surprise.

Eric: Yeah. Yeah, really. Although I have to say it doesn’t seem like you’re surprised at all to see him here.

Eric: Quinn, did you know carter was gonna be here?

Quinn: No. I saw his car parked in the driveway.

Eric: I asked him to help me with something.

Quinn: [Gasps] My portrait.

Eric: Yeah. Carter was kind enough to keep it in storage all this time, and I asked him to– to bring it back and help me hang it up where it belongs.

Quinn: I don’t know what to say.

Eric: No surprise there. This is–this is awkward, isn’t it? The three of us standing here together. Look, we need to move past this. We need to move on, and, uh, we’re not gonna be able to do that by ignoring what happened. I mistreated my wife by withholding from her what I knew she wanted, and I-I–I pushed her right into your arms. But don’t wanna dwell on that.

Quinn: None of us do.

Eric: I think we should move on. I think we all have. You’ve both proven your commitment and loyalty to me, and so… here we are.

Zende: Okay, I know this. It’s good that finn has someone to talk to who doesn’t really know sheila. He must be so conflicted.

Paris: I can only imagine. I mean, he’s just meeting his birth mother.

Zende: He must have a million questions to ask her. She’s a terrible person. The poor guy can’t even risk having any contact with her at all.

Jack: I’m not here to make excuses, but, uh, if I’d known that finn’s birth mother was keeping tabs on him, I certainly would’ve told you all who she was.

Ridge: And I could’ve added some security at the wedding.

Steffy: I wouldn’t have posted our wedding announcement online.

Finn: But, hey, steffy, we were excited about that.

Steffy: Yeah, but we didn’t know it was gonna make our family a target.

Li: Wow. You make this woman sound so awful.

Steffy: Li, she has done some horrible things.

Jack: Believe me, there’s a lot that if I could go back and do it differently, I would. But I don’t want this to taint your opinion of finn or our family.

Steffy: It doesn’T.

Finn: He’s a good boy. He’s gonna make an excellent husband and father.

Steffy: He already is.

Jack: And after what happened on your wedding day, I have to think that sheila’s out of our lives.

Sheila: He’s so handsome. And a doctor. Oh! Healing must run in the family. He and steffy, they have the most beautiful son. My grandson. Hayes. Named after steffy’s mother. You tell my grandson that I love him, and you let him know that his grandmother will always be thinking of him.

Ridge: Come on. Let’s go.

Sheila: It’s my family. It’s my son, my family. One, two! One, two, three! Only pay for what you need!

Eric: We all wanna put this behind us. Quinn is coming home to me, and I don’t want there to be any residual tension between the two of us.

Carter: And there won’t be. I mean, your marriage is gonna be stronger than ever now that you found your way back to each other. I’m gonna go now.

Eric: Okay. Thanks again, carter.

Carter: Yes, I’ll see you at the office.

Eric: Okay.

Quinn: Bye, carter.

Carter: Goodbye.

Eric: Quinn. Come here. You’re crying.

Quinn: It is amazing to see my portrait back up there. I’m so… so lucky to have a second chance to be your wife. I don’t know if I deserve it, but… I’m never gonna take it for granted. I’m still your wife. It’s so…[ Sighs ] It’s so unexpected. I’m-I’m so surprised, I don’t know what to say, so… they’re just–they’re, um– they’re tears of joy.

Eric: Yeah.

Finn: But can you please just keep this between us? There’s no reason for steffy to know about this. Nothing is gonna come of it. And it’s just gonna make her worry even more.

Paris: Okay. It’ll be our secret.

Steffy: I know your son, jack, and there’s nothing he can do to change the way I feel about him.

Li: He loves you so very much.

Finn: And I’m gonna protect you and the kids. Okay, I don’t want you being scared through this.

Jack: And I certainly didn’t want to do anything to make your wedding day less than perfect.

Steffy: No, you didn’T.

Jack: Good. Well, you both are finally married, and you’re a beautiful couple. We should be celebrating your happiness.

Li: Yes, but, jack, what if this woman is unstable as they say?

Ridge: If she reaches out, we need to know about it.

Steffy: Yeah, you can’t engage. Any form of communication is an invitation to sheila.

Ridge: Jack, we got to shut her down completely.

Steffy: I don’t want sheila anywhere near me or my family. But especially hayes.

Sheila: You kicked me out of your family before.

Eric: I see you’re still crazy as hell. My god. I can’t believe I was ever married to you.

Sheila: Do you want me to get down on my hands and knees?

Eric: There’s nothing you can do, sheila. Nothing. You’re finished.

Sheila: Well, you’re not gonna ice me out again. No, this is my son, my grandson. This is my family.

Steffy: Hopefully carter can get the restraining order done, because I cannot have sheila around me or my kids.

Ridge: I get that. Well, we doubled security here, and we’re gonna have to get some guards up at your house.

Steffy: We got to do that soon. I mean, I have the gate, but I don’t know if that’s–

Ridge: The gate? A gate doesn’t do anything. Dad has a gate, and she showed up at the party like she was invited! We can’t relax with sheila around, ever.

Steffy: I get that! I’ve already talked to finn. He’s gonna have to cut all ties with her, and he knows that. And amelia and paris, we just all have to vigilant about protecting the children.

Ridge: So finn understands, right? He–

Steffy: He knows. He’s heard about all the…

Ridge: He– he’s “heard about” it, that doesn’t mean that he lived it, right?

[ Steffy sighs ] He need to understand what this woman is capable of.

Finn: Sheila is not who I pictured she’d be.

Zende: No, I get it. And when you’re adopted… I mean, you can’t help wondering what your birth parents are like. It sucks that you can’t have a relationship with her, but…

Finn: Yeah, but I’m not even sure I would have wanted to. And no matter who she was, I had great parents, a great mom and dad who raised me.

Zende: Yeah. I feel the same way. Again, our circumstances are totally different, but… you know, I lucked out when it came to my adoptive parents. And it seems you did, too.

Paris: Well, they are your parents. They’re what count. Not her.

Finn: Well, thanks. It’s just… it’s all so crazy.

[ Paris sighs ]

Paris: Hey, uh… I know we were supposed to hang out today, but with everything going on here… can we just do it another time?

Eric: [Previously] I– I miss you! And I realized that I– I want to forgive you. It made me think twice about this. I want you to still be my wife. And I don’t want this divorce.

[ Paper tearing ]

Quinn: What do I do?

Carter: That’s up to you, quinn. Only you can make that decision.

Quinn: I’m always gonna adore eric. I– I’m always going to… to love the incredible life that we had together. He was an– he was so good to me for so much of our marriage. He was a kind… and wonderful husband. For him to give me another chance, it just– it just… it’s a testament to the kind of man that he is.

Carter: Eric’s a remarkable man.

Quinn: But then there’s you. You were there for me… when I was completely and utterly alone. We gave ourselves to each other in every way, body and soul, and– what we shared was so magical and unforgettable.

Carter: It was.

Quinn: What do I do? I don’t know if I can go back. I– I don’t know if that’s what I want.

Carter: Is it?

Quinn: Carter… I don’t think I can leave you.

Finn: I’ll be fine. Go have fun! You have plans. You don’t need to worry about me.

Paris: I am not leaving you here alone, finn.

Zende: She’s right. It’s not a big deal. You have a lot going on right now, and I can see paris whenever. I came by just to give her a kiss, anyway.

Paris: Oh, you did?

Zende: Yeah, I did.

Paris: Hmm.

Zende: Okay, I’m good.

[ Paris chuckles] Hey, good luck with everything. Seriously.

Finn: Thanks, man.

Zende: Yeah.

Paris: Okay. I will text you later.

Zende: You better.

Finn: You need to go with zende. You don’t need to stay here and worry with me.

Paris: No, I am good right where I am, thank you very much. I know I keep saying this, but you and steffy have been so cool to me. If there’s anything you need from me, just ask.

Finn: There is one favor I’d like to ask.

Paris: Anything.

Finn: Don’t tell steffy about sheila reaching out to me.

Quinn: I don’t know what to do.

[ Sniffles ] I’m so confused. On one hand, I– I am… I’m relieved that eric wants to work on our marriage, but then… then I look at you, and I… I remember how incredible it feels to be in your arms.

Carter: Deep down… I think you know what needs to be done.

[ Cell phone chiming ]

Quinn: That’s eric calling.

[ Chiming continues ]

[ Beep ]

Carter: Hey, eric.

Eric: Carter, good. Um, I’m not interrupting, am I? Listen, um… quinn’s portrait. Do you still have it? Did you throw it away, or…?

Carter: No. I didn’t get rid of it. I– I put it storage.

Eric: That’s wonderful! Could you bring it by the house for me?

[ Chuckling ] Look, this may come as a surprise to you, but, uh… well, quinn and I did not sign the papers. We’re not getting a divorce. I don’t want to lose her. Uh… I want my wife back. I love her.

[ Quinn inhaling deeply ]

Carter: I see.

Eric: Look, I know it’s not part of your job description, but, uh, is it possible that you could bring it to the house right away?

Carter: Yeah. Yeah, I’ll be there right away.

Eric: Great, carter. I appreciate it. Thank you.

[ Phone beeps ]

Carter: [ Inhales ] Well, you heard the man. You better get going.

Quinn: You know, you don’t have to do that–

Carter: I know I don’t have to. And a part of me doesn’t want to, a big part, quinn, but I think this is what’s best for you. Go back. Go be mrs. Eric forrester. On the outside, I looked fine.

Ridge: I get it. It’s your husband, you want to be loyal to him. You trust him–

Steffy: I just know him. He’ll listen to me.

Ridge: Okay. Not even about him. What about– what about her? Sheila. This is his birth mother. You think she’s just gonna walk away from finn? All she ever wanted to do was be part of this family. She’s devious!

Steffy: She scares me too, dad! But I am confident that finn’s not gonna have any interaction with sheila, ever again.

Finn: Steffy doesn’t know that sheila texted me, and all I did was respond with an emoji.

Paris: A heart emoji.

Finn: And that’s– that’s all it is. Me responding that I received the message, and hopefully by just sending an emoji and not actually responding, she’ll read between the lines and see that she can’t contact me anymore. But can you please just… keep this between us, paris? There’s no reason for steffy to know about this. Nothing is gonna come of it, and it’s just gonna make her worry even more.

Paris: …Okay. I won’t say anything to steffy.

Finn: Yeah?

Paris: It’ll be our secret.

Quinn: How can I say goodbye to you?

Carter: Maybe we should just… see this for what it is. You’re eric’s wife. What he did, tearing up the divorce papers… trusting you enough to remain married to you… quinn, that’s an incredible act of grace on his part.

Quinn: It was.

Carter: Look, I will never forget our connection. I feel it as deeply as you do. But I think your heart… is with your husband. This could be your last chance. Take it. Go back to eric. Be with him, quinn. Go home. I want this for you. I know eric can give you a wonderful, fulfilling life. And what happened here, you know, these last several weeks, no one will know. It stays between us. I won’T…

[ Sniffles ] I won’t destroy what you and eric… what you guys will have.

Quinn: You would do that for me?

Carter: I want you to be happy.

Quinn: But you make me happy! [ Sobs ]

Carter: So does eric. Look… the history that you two share… what you’ve been though… it’s gonna make your marriage even stronger.>> Quinn: You, carter… are such a gift to me. I will cherish our time together.

Carter: So will I.

Quinn: I’m gonna miss you. I can feel it. I feel like I’m leaving a part of me behind.

Carter: I’ll hold on to what you’ve given me, quinn, but you don’t need me to tell you what you need to do.

Quinn: So this is goodbye?

[ Quinn sobs ]

[ Inhaling deeply ] …You’re right. I love my husband.

[ Sniffling ] Carter… I love you.

Carter: I love you too.
