Stephanie: That's one of my favorites, too. Why don't you go ahead and call him?
Steffy: It won't do any good, Grandma.
Stephanie: Make him understand what this is doing to you.
Steffy: Make him feel sorry for me? (Scoffs) No way. (Sighs)
Stephanie: It's the most natural thing in the world for you to miss your father. It doesn't make you any the less accomplished or independent. Now you can deny all you want that you miss him, but I know you do.
Steffy: I think that this tribute is an accurate representation of what she's done for the company and for the Forrester family. I have no doubt...
Taylor: Madison said you had a minute.
Steffy: You'll all agree...
Ridge: I'm not doing anything constructive.
Taylor: Call her.
Ridge: Oh, I think she's heard enough from me today.
Taylor: Steffy needs you to believe her. Somebody else sabotaged that--that video. I promise you. Please don't close your mind to her.
Hope: Oh, hi.
Liam: Hi. Um, Mrs. Forrester asked me to set up the Wi-Fi.
Hope: Oh, yeah, right. Hi. (Chuckles)
Liam: Yeah, uh, I'm Liam.
Hope: Oh, I'm Hope. But, uh, I don't need to tell you that, do I? Because you already know all about me and my family.
Liam: Uh, no, I'm--
Hope: No, it's--it's fine. Um, I-I could see it on your face when I told you what my name was. Don't worry about it. It's fine. I've been getting a lot of that lately.
Liam: I'm really sorry.
Hope: Wow, the-- the way you say that, I-I really think you mean it. (Chuckles)
Liam: I do mean it. What happened to you is terrible.
Hope: (Sighs) Well, people have survived a lot worse, so...
Liam: You're really not upset about it?
Hope: Well, you know, I-I don't much like, um, people staring at me or--or being chased by reporters or being made fun of on TV, but it's my life now. The nice normal life I used to have ended the second the whole world found out about my mom and my boyfriend.
Katie: There's my handsome husband.
Katie: (Chuckles) Well, don't keep me in suspense. How was your meeting with Steffy?
Bill: Uh... she's pretty pissed at her daddy right now.
Katie: Hmm. Something tells me that feeling might be mutual.
Bill: It's hard for her being on his bad side.
Katie: Hmm. Sounds like you almost feel sorry for her.
Bill: She is vulnerable, Katie. She's been shut out. She is wounded and angry. When people get hurt, they get careless. Steffy's in a lot of pain. As ironic as it seems, she feels that her father betrayed her.
Steffy: I need my father to act like my father, Grandma.
Stephanie: Yeah, I agree.
Steffy: I don't blame him for being worried about Hope. No.
Stephanie: You upset because she's staying here?
Steffy: What? No.
Steffy: Absolutely not.
Stephanie: Okay, good.
Steffy: But Hope's life is a nightmare right now, and dad blames that on me, not Brooke. And that's what hurts. God, you know, even if I could prove to him that I'm innocent, it's not gonna change anything. Dad's under Brooke’s spell, and you know that. You know, whenever it comes down to me or her, I'm exactly where I am right now. So really, what's the point?
Stephanie: The point is, you're innocent! We've gotta figure out a way to make your father see that.
Stephanie: I mean, we do. We have to make him understand that.
Katie: So Steffy's angry. She's feeling betrayed?
Bill: She says she was set up.
Katie: Please. Humiliating my family at a company press conference? That's page one of her playbook.
Bill: I'm just telling you what she said.
Katie: And you don't have an opinion?
Bill: All I care about is how this can work to my advantage.
Katie: Mm. That's so cold.
Bill: Well, that's what it's gonna take to regain control of Forrester Creations. I have to be razor sharp. My plan won't work if we lose the element of surprise.
Katie: Surprise, huh? (Chuckles)
Hope: Y-you actually-- you look familiar to me.
Liam: Oh, I, uh, I did some work at Forrester.
Hope: Oh, that's right. You know what? Stephanie, she told me that, and I-I forgot. I've just been out of it.
Liam: Oh, n no, whatever. It's no big deal. I'm just some guy working on a computer. I'm nobody important.
Hope: No, are you kidding? You're sweet and cute, and you can save all my music if my computer dies. You're like my dream guy. (Chuckles)
Liam: Uh... (chuckles)
Hope: So--so, uh... (chuckles) you said that you--you did some work with my family?
Liam: Yeah, I-I did.
Hope: I'm--I'm sorry. I know you're working. I'm bothering you.
Hope: Just keep-- keep doing what you're doing.
Liam: No. No, you're not. Um, maybe we could talk about something else, though?
Hope: Why? Were you doing top secret work? (Chuckles)
Liam: Uh, Steffy asked me to come over and check her computer to see if there was any hacking.
Hope: Oh. Oh. So, um... so--so you really know all about me and-- and my family.
Liam: It's not fair. You seem really nice.
Hope: Well, thanks.
Liam: This whole thing is just one big mess.
Hope: That's good. Can I use that for the title of my autobiography? (Chuckles)
Liam: Well, it's a mess for everyone. I mean, Steffy, too, you know?
Hope: Hey, um, Liam, you didn't happen to find anything on her computer, did you?
Liam: No, no. It was clean, but, you know, that--that doesn't mean anything. I mean, somebody could--
Hope: Yeah, you know what? Look, you're--you're really sweet to care about all this and everything, but, um, nobody's going to convince me that it was anybody but Steffy who--who went public.
(Cell phone rings)
Hope: Oh. Hello? Hey, Madison. You know what? I'm gonna take this in the other--
Hope: Continue what you're doing.
Hope: Hey. Wait. Oh, that's tonight? Oh, okay.
Taylor: You asked Steffy to make that tribute to Brooke, and she did it. As much as it hurt her, she did it for you, Ridge. Somebody else tampered with it, and now you're both paying the price. Why would she do that to you?
Ridge: Hey, it's me.
Steffy: Hi. (Whispers) It's dad.
Stephanie: (Whispers) okay.
Steffy: (Normal voice) hi.
Ridge: I don't like where we left things today.
Steffy: I don't either.
Ridge: Can we talk?
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah. I-I'd like that.
Ridge: I can meet you at your mom's house in an hour?
Steffy: Well, are-- are you at the office? I could stop by there.
Ridge: No, no, Steffy. Not here.
Steffy: Wait, you still won't allow me in the building?
Ridge: We'll be able to talk more freely away from the office.
Steffy: No, Dad, am I allowed back at Forrester, or am I not?
Ridge: Let's see how things go.
Steffy: N-no. Dad, if you don't trust me to be on Forrester property, then you're not ready to hear what I have to say.
Ridge: Steffy, listen. It's--it's not like that. You just have to understand-- Steffy? (Sighs) She hung up.
Stephanie: I'm sorry. I'm sorry, honey.
Steffy: It's hopeless.
Stephanie: No, it's not.
Steffy: He doesn't believe me, Grandma. I've sworn up and down I didn't do it.
Stephanie: Well, we have to prove to him that you didn't do it. Maybe the person that did it made some sort of mistake. Maybe we can figure that out.
Steffy: Grandma, there's nothing on the computer, all right? It's no use. Nothing.
Stephanie: Look, I know that you're exhausted, and I know you think that nothing's going to change, but it will. I'm absolutely determined that this rift between you and your father is gonna be repaired.
Stephanie: Well, let's get smart. Let's start asking ourselves some questions. Who would gain the most from something like this?
Steffy: Grandma, nobody could gain anything from it. Everybody's miserable. The company's barely functioning.
Stephanie: Wait. Who gains the most from all of this chaos? Bill Spencer.
Steffy: Oh, Grandma, I have more of a chance getting into Forrester than he does. He has--there's no way he got his hands on my computer.
Stephanie: Well, don't you take you computer home with you?
Stephanie: Did you leave it in the car? Did you leave it in a coffee shop? I mean--
Steffy: My laptop was being serviced.
Stephanie: Before the tribute? Who was the tech that worked on it? Do you remember?
Steffy: Um... (sighs) yeah, the cute guy--Liam. But there is no way he had anything to do with this. Neither does Bill Spencer. Grandma, he's married to Katie. He would never destroy her sister or her niece. Let's just face it. There's nothing I can do to prove that I'm innocent, all right?
Stephanie: You know what, honey?
Stephanie: I don't want you to worry about this anymore. You just leave it to me. I'm gonna figure this out. I give you my word of honor. And when I do, all hell's gonna break loose. Okay?
Bill: Let's hope Steffy hasn't changed her cell number.
Katie: Don't you think that if you call her this soon, she'll realize you're up to something?
Bill: I hope so.
Steffy: Let me guess. You can't stop thinking about me. You had to call.
Bill: I need to see you. I would suggest Forrester Creations, but neither one of us is allowed in the building.
Steffy: What do you want, Bill?
Bill: Meet me at my beach house, and you'll find out.
Steffy: Mm, the beach house, huh? Like old times for us.
Bill: Don't tell anybody where you're going.
Katie: Well, I guess that's my cue to take a nice long walk on the beach.
Bill: And while you're out there, imagine yourself sitting behind the C.E.O. desk at Forrester Creations. That's what I'll be doing the whole time you're gone.
Katie: Oh, you're ready to take our little sexy executive game out of the bedroom? You want the real thing?
Bill: Aren't you ready? Haven't you missed it?
Katie: More than you know.
Bill: More that you realized.
Bill: Well, I'm gonna get it back for you.
Katie: You do that. It'd be quite a gift.
Bill: Well, you're quite a woman.
Bill: The person who stole that company from me is gonna be the one who helps me get it back.
Liam: I'm all finished.
Stephanie: Oh, you're fast. I guess you know what you're doing.
Liam: Oh, m-- uh, Mrs. Forrester. Yeah, I guess so. Hope stepped out for a minute. Uh, I left her some instructions.
Stephanie: So she was here?
Liam: Yes. Yeah.
Stephanie: Pretty girl, isn't she?
Liam: Yeah, yeah, she was. She really impressed me.
Stephanie: Um, am I right? A-aren't you the, uh, the young man that, uh, worked on my other granddaughter Steffy's computer?
Liam: I did, yeah.
Stephanie: To--to see if it had been tampered with.
Stephanie: It wasn't?
Stephanie: But that wasn't the first time you worked on her computer, was it?
Liam: Uh, no, ma'am.
Stephanie: Didn't you do some contract work on it before the tribute to Brooke? Because if I remember correctly, Steffy said that's when she met you.
Liam: Uh, yeah, I guess-- I guess I did.
Stephanie: Yeah. Oh, you don't remember meeting a pretty young girl like that?
Liam: (Chuckles) Uh, you know, we see a lot of clients in a week, and--and sometimes I remember the computers more than the faces, so...
Stephanie: Yeah, but, uh, Steffy asked you to come back and help her. You remember that? She wanted you to help her clear her name. I don't suppose a lot of clients ask you for something like that, do they? Want to give it another shot?
Liam: Uh... ma'am?
Stephanie: You want to take another look at the computer?
Liam: Oh, no, I-I don't-- I actually don't think that would have any point. I mean, I'm not gonna be the guy that finds anything anyway, so...
Stephanie: Hold on, Liam.
Taylor: I rest my case. You and Steffy are so stubborn.
Ridge: I asked to see her.
Taylor: On your terms.
Ridge: I said it before, Taylor. I cannot give her a pass this time. There just have to be consequences.
Taylor: Yeah? There will be. I just hope they're consequences you can live with. You're both in pain. I can see that, and I'm trying to help you here. But if you don't talk, there's not much I can do.
Ridge: I love her so much. I hate what this is doing to us. I hate what this vendetta is doing to her. I was so proud when she started working here. She reminded me so much of me at that age. I had this idea that one day, she'd be the one that would take over for me.
Taylor: So tell her that. Oh, my gosh, Ridge. That would mean so much to her. Just be honest with her, please. Just be honest with her. Have here meet you here in a room somewhere that nobody knows you're here, just the two of you, nobody looking over your shoulder. Nobody throwing in their 2 cents. (Sighs) That's the only way you're gonna fix this. But one of you has to make the first move. I think it would mean everything to Steffy, and it definitely would to me if it were you.
Steffy: Hello? Hi. We're alone?
Bill: We are.
Steffy: Good. So why are you so anxious to talk to me?
Bill: You own 25% of Forrester Creations. I thought we established that.
Steffy: You're serious?
Bill: I'm not gonna play games with you, Steffy. I have learned that you're way too smart for that. You'd see right through it.
Steffy: Wait, you asked me to come over here to discuss my stock?
Bill: And to see how you're doing. I've thought a lot about our conversation...
Bill: And the way your father's been treating you. He really doesn't believe you?
Steffy: You know, he's not the only one. I'm guessing your wife's on that list, too.
Bill: I'm not.
Steffy: You think I'm innocent?
Bill: Yes, I do. The question is, why doesn't your father? And how long are you gonna let him punish you for something you didn't do?
Stephanie: I'm curious. Wait--wait just a minute. I'm curious.
Liam: Yeah, I should really get going to my next client.
Stephanie: Close the door. It's okay. I just want to ask you something. You said--about your clients. So this is your full-time job?
Liam: Uh, well, yeah. I mean, I-- it depends on how many customers we have.
Stephanie: So some weeks you have more clients than others? Wow. Well, that must be difficult for you-- I mean, making ends meet in this sort of climate that we're in now, uh, financially. (Chuckles)
Liam: (Sighs) No, I-I get by.
Stephanie: Oh, you-- you don't have to have a second job?
Liam: Um, no, I mean, you know, nothing I-I get paid for.
Stephanie: But you must have other interests. Music? Fashion? Publishing?
Liam: Hey, I'm just an I.T. guy.
Stephanie: Don't publishers need I.T. guys?
Liam: Yeah. Yeah, sure.
Stephanie: Is that what you do for Bill Spencer? Or do you do other things for Bill Spencer?
Liam: Um, I don't-- I'm not supposed to discuss that with clients.
Stephanie: Wait a minute. I remember now. I saw you at that tribute, didn't I? You work for Spencer Publications. You were at Forrester the night before the tribute. You worked on my granddaughter's computer.
Stephanie: You were in her office. You could have planted a device that recorded a conversation. Is that what you did?
Liam: No, I--
Stephanie: Did you do that? You tell me the truth. Is that what you did?
Liam: Aah! Ow! Okay!
Stephanie: I'll kill you!
Stephanie: You set my granddaughter up!
