Liam: You can’t be serious.
Hope: My mother confirmed it.
Liam: And confirmed what– what douglas said, that he saw that night?
Hope: Yes, that he saw grandma kissing santa claus, only it wasn’t santa claus. It was my father.
Ridge: Hey… faced bigger challenges than this. We always made it through. We’re going to make it through again, together.
Brooke: I want to believe that so much.
Ridge: You want to believe it? You have to believe it. Believe in us, our destiny.
Brooke: Yes, of course.
Ridge: I’m here… no matter what.
Steffy: Dad, brooke, what is going on?
Grace: Would you believe it? I can’t even sew a simple hemline.
Zende: Dr. Buckingham. Hey!
Grace: Grace, please. Now what do you suppose that says about me?
Zende: That your talents lay elsewhere? After all, you are highly successful doctor? But truth be told, I can’t sew a hemline either.
Grace: Oh, I very much doubt that.
Zende: Well, what brings you to forrester?
Grace: Well, I was just driving by. I am actually looking for my daughter. I thought she might be here with you.
Zende: Sorry. Um… no. I don’t know where paris is.
Carter: Mmm… what are we doing?
Paris: I believe it’s called kissing.
Carter: I mean…
Paris: I–I know what you mean, carter. But I just… I don’t see the problem.
Carter: Of course you do. Paris, if this goes any further, it’s not– it’s not a good idea.
Paris: Maybe, or maybe we’re just getting in our own way.
Carter: I wish, but I’m sorry, paris, as much as I really, really want to… I can’T.
Grace: These are beautiful.
Zende: Thank you.
Grace: May I make a tiny confession?
Zende: Sure. Okay.
Grace: As much as I like to stay out of both my daughters’ love lives, sometimes I can’t help myself. I have to tell them how I feel, whether they like it or not. Shocking, I know. But it’s very clear you are such a fine, upstanding, accomplished young man. And I am so delighted that paris has found someone good like you.
Sequoyah: Sorry. Photo shoot ran long, but I am ready now. Can’t wait to get our date started.
Paris: You can’t what?
Carter: I can’t–we– we can’t be doing this.
Paris: I won’t tell if you won’T. It’s nobody’s business.
Carter: Already been down that road, paris, with quinn? Sneaking around, keeping things on the dl.
Paris: She was married and I’m not.
Carter: And I still yet very, very complicated. I almost lost everything. My friendship with ridge, relationship with eric, and the rest of the forresters, not to mention my job.
Paris: I understand.
Carter: Do you?
Paris: Yeah, but don’t expect me to like it.
Carter: Aw… you’re cute when you pout. To get involved with another woman who’s involved with the forrester men?
Paris: Okay, zende and i are dating, yes. But we both agreed to see other people. He’s going out with a gorgeous model tonight, and I’m okay with that. And I’m very okay with this. Don’t you want to be with me as much as I want to be with you?
Liam: Wait, so when douglas looked through brooke’s window that night…
Hope: He saw my father wearing a santa’s hat. And luckily he didn’t see his face, but he saw someone.
Liam: What, he saw someone wearing a santa hat, which is why he thought he saw grandma kissing santa claus?
Hope: Except it was my dad.
Liam: Oh, my god. Tell me ridge doesn’t know.
Hope: No, no, thank goodness. But if he does find out–
Liam: Well, yeah–
Hope: That–that is what my mom is terrified about.
Ridge: Steffy, what brings you by?
Steffy: I just wanted to stop by and see if I could… brooke, what’s going on? You seem upset.
Ridge: Everything’s fine. I was just talking about maybe getting some fresh air, going for a drive, you know?
Steffy: Nice try, dad. It’s becoming more and more obvious that you and brooke are going through something. I mean, I just walked in and you are clearly upset, brooke. How much longer are you going to keep this from me? Don’t settle for products that give you a sort-of white smile.
Sequoyah: Oh, my bad. I didn’t know you were with someone.
Zende: It’s okay. Listen, sequoia, why don’t you wait downstairs while I finish things up here? I’ll be right down.
Sequoyah: Well, since I’ve waited this long for a date with the fabulous zende forrester, guess I can wait a bit longer.
Zende: You look confused. I’m sorry, I figured you knew where things stood between paris and me. We’re dating, but not exclusive. This is something we both want.
Grace: This being seeing other people?
Zende: Please know I care deeply for paris. She’s very special to me, and we’ve shared many amazing times together. And I’m very much hoping that we’ll share many more.
Grace: But the flirtatious model downstairs awaits.
Zende: If I see paris on my way out, I’ll tell her you’re looking for her.
[ Phone jingling ]
Paris: Mmm! It’s my mom’s ringtone. Hey, mom, what’s up?
Grace: I need to see you. I stopped by forrester creations. I thought you’d be here.
Paris: Oh, what? What’s going on?
Grace: I’d like to talk to you in person. Where are you? I mean, I can come meet you wherever you are.
Paris: No, no, no, no. If it’s that important, I can just– I can come by the office.
Grace: I think it is.
Paris: Okay, well, I’ll see you in a bit.
Carter: Is your mom all right?
Paris: I think so, but her timing could have been better.
Carter: I think she might have done us a favor. Might be best for you to leave before things… go too far between us.
Paris: You are being very cautious, mr. Walton.
Carter: Paris. I don’t want you to get hurt.
Paris: I don’t want that either. But knowing the guy that you are, I don’t think that will happen.
Carter: Your mom is waiting.
Paris: I know, but I wonder what could be so urgent.
Carter: And I wonder how your mom would feel about another one of her daughters getting involved with me. Given how things turned out between me and zoe.
Paris: Okay, would you– would you like me to ask her?
Carter: No, no. Not at all.
Paris: You don’t think that she would approve?
Carter: I don’t think we even know what to call this yet. Or where it might go.
Paris: But I think we might be getting closer to finding out.
Liam: Okay. Wow, this is just–this is… this is too much.
Hope: I know how it sounds, but it is not what you’re thinking.
Liam: Well, I mean, you literally just told me that your dad spent the night with brooke on new year’s, and in fact, they slept in the same bed together? So–
Hope: Okay, yes, they did. But he was on top of the covers. They were fully dressed, so nothing actually happened.
Liam: Well, no, like this one thing didn’t happen. But a lot happened.
Ridge: We appreciate your concern, but trust me when I tell you that everything’s under control.
Steffy: I do trust you, dad. But when I look at brooke, is that how you feel? This is how things are supposed to be?
Ridge: Everything’s fine. So tell me why you came by?
Steffy: I came by because i wanted to see if you were coming to dinner tonight, remember? We talked about it at my house.
Steffy: Thought I could give you a ride or something.
Ridge: It’S… tonight may not be the best night for that.
Steffy: Because you don’t want to leave brooke for some reason? I mean, if she’d like to join, she can, but it’s just gonna be our family, so…
Brooke: You should go, ridge. It’s obviously very important to steffy. And you and I can spend time together later.
Ridge: You sure?
Brooke: Yeah, it’s fine. I’m fine, really.
These are the faces
Paris: Mom? Hey. What brings you by?
Grace: I was in the neighborhood. Thought I’d see if you wanted to grab some coffee.
Paris: Well, is everything okay? You sounded concerned on the phone.
Grace: I was hoping you’d tell me there’s no reason to be. That I’m misinterpreting or overreacting.
Paris: Overreacting to what? I don’t understand.
Grace: Neither do I. You and zende. What’s really going on with you two?
Mess it up, straighten out
fess up, hang it up
look away, stare it down
build it up, rip it down
check up, fall down
pick it up, pick it up
pick it up
get it up, get it up
mess up, straighten out
fess up, hang it up
look away, stare it down
build it up, rip it down
Hope: My mom wasn’t herself that night. She relapsed. Ridge didn’t make it home, and all of it. She was blacked out and my dad helped her upstairs, tucked her into bed. They both slept it off, but then imagine the next morning when my mom wakes up and sees deacon lying there.
Liam: I mean, think what would have happened if ridge came home and found them like that? We’re actually– not even that. What would happen if ridge ever gets wind of this?
Brooke: You know?
Liam: Yeah, hope just told me.
Brooke: I still haven’t figured out why I did what I did that night. Why I drank after so many years have been sober. And on top of that, I…I kissed deacon. A kiss that douglas saw! We have to talk to him and make sure he doesn’t tell anybody.
Steffy: Unfortunately, the er’s shorthanded. Finn’s going to have to pull a double shift and mom’s tied up. She’s dealing with a patient, so I don’t know if we’re gonna see her.
Ridge: Hey, what about your brother?
Steffy: Thomas will be here. And amelia is coming with kelly and hayes.
Steffy: Dad, she said she was going to be fine. Brooke, I know you’re thinking about her. And she’s your wife, and you love her, but honestly–
Ridge: No buts, please. Don’t criticize her. She’s gone through a lot, just don’t keep piling stuff on.
Steffy: I’m not–
Ridge: Hey! I didn’t know you were coming. What a great surprise. Hi.
Thomas: Yeah, I picked him up on the way here. He was actually waiting for me at the gate house.
Steffy: He didn’t know you had him today.
Thomas: Yeah, that wasn’t actually in the plans, but I cleared it with hope a couple of days ago.
Douglas: I hope mommy isn’t mad at me? Wait, why would she be mad at you, bud? Like pulsing, electric shocks,
Brooke: So where is douglas? In his room?
Liam: He’s outside playing.
Brooke: Okay, well, we have to talk to him right away. We need to make sure that he doesn’t tell anybody that he saw grandma kissing santa on new year’S.
Liam: Yeah, we–I’ll go get him. Um…yeah.
Hope: Mom, you really need to calm down about this, okay. If douglas saw you–
Brooke: I know, honey, but what are we going to do? He can’t tell anybody, especially not ridge.
Hope: He won’T.
Brooke: He’s a smart young kid. I mean, he’s going to be asking questions. I don’t even know how we’re going to explain this.
Hope: And we will deal with that when and if we have to. I mean, right now–
Liam: Hey, guys, I can’t find him.
Brooke: Well, did you check up at my house?
Liam: Supposed to be in the treehouse, but he’s not there.
Hope: You know what? No. It’s–actually it’s thomas’s day today. So maybe, maybe he already picked douglas up. I don’t–
Liam: Wait a minute, thomas? He should have told us if he was going to come get douglas.
Hope: No, he did. He left a voicemail, and there’s a text message.
Liam: All right. What? Hope, what?
Hope: He said he took douglas over to steffy’s house, and, uh… ridge is going to be joining them.
Brooke: If that’s true, then douglas could be telling them right now. And ridge is, he’s going to put it together. He’s going to know that I kissed deacon.
Ridge: You’re worried you upset your mom?
Douglas: Uh huh.
Thomas: There’s no need to be worried, bud. Your mom knows you’re here with me.
Douglas: That’s not it.
Steffy: The reason hope might be mad at you, you mean?
Douglas: I saw something. I told mommy and liam about it. They asked a lot of questions.
Thomas: Questions… about what?
Ridge: Hey. Come here. We’re family, you can tell us.
Douglas: I left my stuffed animal up at grandma’s house. I snuck out of the cabin to get it. It was dark outside and mommy and liam didn’t know I’d gone.
Thomas: I can see why your mom would be upset. Yeah, it’s a big property. It’s very safe, but you’re just a little boy.
Douglas: I know.
Steffy: Yeah, it’s understandable why hope and liam wouldn’t want you roaming around at night.
Ridge: Is there something else? You don’t have to tell us, but… might feel better if you do.
Douglas: I’m sorry I disobeyed mommy and liam. I won’t do it again. But getting to see grandma with santa claus?
Thomas: Wait, what?
Douglas: When I got to the main house that night, I saw grandma kissing santa.
Brooke: Just one mention by douglas to any of them about what he saw on new year’s eve…
[ Brooke sighing ] That could lead to figuring out what I did. That I kissed deacon. And if that happens… my marriage isn’t going to be able to recover. I will lose ridge forever.
Ridge: You saw grandma kissing santa claus? Grandma brooke?
