Liam: Am I still bleeding?
Liam: Um... do you want me to go?
Liam: Because I'm making a fool of myself.
Hope: (Chuckles) How would I know? I'm made a fool of all the time in trashy tabloids.
Liam: No, they don't even touch you. You're so far above that. Anybody can see that, not just me.
Steffy: You having a bad day?
Steffy: Relax. You don't have to call security.
Oliver: You think I'd do that?
Steffy: (Singsongy) I'm back. (Normal voice) I got unfired. My good name was saved-- my not-so-good, not-that-bad name.
Steffy: Actually, somebody at Spencer Publications got ahold of my laptop.
Oliver: I hope you got the police involved and you pressed charges?
Steffy: (Scoffs) And give their headlines a new lease on life? No way. You know, all I want is for people I know to believe me. But I guess I'm such a bitch on wheels, they think I'm capable of anything.
Oliver: You are not a, uh, female dog on wheels.
Steffy: You say the sweetest things.
Oliver: I believed you.
Steffy: Yeah, you believed me. But why didn't my dad?
(Knock on door)
Brooke: Ridge, is that you? (Scoffs)
Stephanie: You don't answer your do--front door anymore?
Brooke: What are you doing? How did you get in here? Is Hope with you?
Stephanie: Brooke, wild horses couldn't drag that girl back to this house while you're still in it. And now you can stop blaming Steffy for the scandal that you're involved in, because she wasn't responsible for it. It was your dear brother-in-law Bill.
Steffy: You know, I suppose I make it easy for people to believe the worst in me. I've been awful to Hope, more awful than I meant to be to Brooke. I wasn't even that nice to my sister. Every time I'd mention Phoebe, I'd just say, "Oh, God, how I miss her so much." You know, somebody oughta slap me and say, "Then why were you such a female dog on wheels when she was alive?"
Oliver: (Scoffs) I don't believe that.
Steffy: I missed, like, what, three of her last birthdays in a row? I was in London. I couldn't be bothered.
Oliver: You were twins. It was your birthday, too. (Chuckles)
Steffy: Yeah. You know, I-I wish you knew her. You wouldn't have given me a second look. What am I saying? You don't even look at me. (Chuckles)
Oliver: I look at you. I'm looking at you right now.
Stephanie: Oh, Spencer will deny it, I'm sure, but I believe he probably did it in order to sell more magazines.
Brooke: Uh, I'm sorry, but that's just too convenient. Steffy is the one who put that supposed tribute together.
Stephanie: But the boy that worked on her laptop computer has confessed to the whole thing. Ridge will fill you in on all the details. That's not why I'm here. Look, this situation has caused irreparable damage between she and her dad. I want to know what you're gonna do about it.
Hope: You don't even know me.
Liam: Well, maybe I do.
(Knock on door)
Ridge: Hope? It's me. I need to talk to you.
Hope: It's my dad.
Liam: Oh, my God. You patched me up for nothing. He's really gonna kill me this time.
Brooke: Irreparable damage to Steffy? I'm the one who can't leave the house without an avalanche of cameras in my face. I'm the one the headlines are screaming, "devours her young."
Stephanie: Well, live life the way you do, and these things happen.
Stephanie: Look... (Sighs) Steffy's devastated by the fact that her--her father's lost faith and trust in her. And you're responsible.
Brooke: No. No. Steffy is. And you're really no help with this relentless campaign against my daughter and me.
Stephanie: The point I'm trying to make is Ridge's loyalty to you, undying loyalty to you, has created a wall between the two of them. And if you're any kind of a decent wife and human being, you'll try and do something to help mend that relationship.
Steffy: You know, I wish you could tell me something honestly.
Oliver: Tell you what
Steffy: What do you like about me? What do you see in me? And please, do not tell me my looks.
Oliver: I like that you're smart and funny, and you got guts. I like that you're unsinkable. You're never really down for that long. I mean, you always got a plan, right?
Steffy: Go on.
Steffy: What's wrong with my looks? Okay, I'm just kidding, all right? I know you're not attracted to me.
Oliver: I never said that.
Steffy: It's always been about Hope.
Oliver: That's not really in my control. Not that it really matters now. She's done with me.
Steffy: That's this week.
Oliver: Nope. (Laughs) She says she can't get past the, uh... you know.
Steffy: Well, maybe we should just go somewhere, you know, start over.
Oliver: Start what over?
Steffy: Everything. You know, I'm suddenly worth a lot more money than I was last week. You know, I could probably, like, arrange something where you and I don't have to work. I mean, ever. You know, isn't there someplace you thought maybe you just might end up?
Oliver: Yeah. Married to Hope. Having kids, getting old together.
Steffy: Huh. Well, then, uh, I guess we're gonna have to get her back for ya, huh?
Ridge: I apologized to Steffy as soon as I found out, but it wasn't enough. Anyway, that's my problem to solve. Naturally, you were the next person I wanted to tell. You're taking this very well.
Hope: Well, you know, I'm just really glad to hear that it wasn't Steffy. You know, but I don--I don't think that you've ever heard me, you know, blame Steffy for all this.
Ridge: No, and I very much appreciate that. It can't have been easy for you to hear, though, seeing as Bill Spencer's married to your Aunt Katie.
Hope: Hey, Dad? The horrible thing isn't that the whole world knows what happened. The horrible thing is that it did.
Ridge: That's what your mother feels, too. She doesn't care what anyone thinks except you. If I didn't believe that she and Oliver never intended for that to happen--
Hope: You know, I-I-I believe it, too.
Ridge: Then come home to us. Your mother's destroyed by this.
Hope: I can't.
Ridge: Even though you accept that it was a mistake?
Hope: Yeah, uh, I do. It's just--doesn't make that big of a difference to me.
Ridge: Okay. By the way, I found out that Bill Spencer had help sabotaging your mother's tribute. A young guy named Liam Cooper. I have a feeling that he may not be done with us. There may be another shoe to drop. So I'm asking you to please be careful, be aware of him, okay? 'Cause he will say anything.
Hope: Okay. Yeah.
Ridge: All right, sweetie. Bye.
Hope: Good night. So... is it true? Will you really say anything?
Brooke: Once again, your version of reality doesn't square with the facts. Steffy is the cause of Steffy's problem with me. She can't accept my marriage to Ridge.
Stephanie: Well, that's the stepmother's lot in life, isn't it? But you're supposed to be the grown-up here. You're the one that's supposed to show a little patience, make the initiatives. Doesn't a husband have a right to expect that?
Brooke: I am not going to take lessons from you on how to be a good mother and a good wife.
Stephanie: Well, I think that you better start taking some lessons from somewhere, because sleeping with your daughter's boyfriends and husbands isn't part of the program.
Brooke: Stop. You are such a hypocrite. Here you are saying that it is my duty as Ridge's wife to support him and his daughter. And I have done that, and I will continue to do that. But meanwhile, all you can do, Stephanie, is throw obstacles between Hope and me.
Stephanie: (Scoffs) Hey, I--hope--I'm not keeping Hope at my house against her will.
Brooke: Well, then what are you doing? She shouldn't be there at all, and I want her back.
Stephanie: Even if she packed her bags and drove away from my home, she wouldn't come here. My bet is she'd go right to LAX and get on a plane to somewhere, anywhere where you aren't. It would be the best thing in the world for her.
Liam: (Chuckles) You know--you know, there probably was a time when I would've said anything. And then my mom got sick, and that changed. All--all--all I'm saying is everything I've told you is the truth, but your dad's probably right still. You should stay a million miles away from me.
(Cell phone rings)
Liam: Boyfriend again?
Liam: You know, I-I could tell him what I did.
Hope: No. No.
Liam: Probably killing him to be apart from you right now.
Oliver: I-I know you don't want to talk to me, but don't hang up. I know you don't want to see me. I just gotta tell you, I-I'm not giving up, okay? I just--I just can't. I love you too much.
Hope: I'm sorry, Oliver. It's just too hard.
Oliver: It'll--it'll get a little easier every day.
Hope: Yeah, and y-you know, maybe one day we can be friends.
Oliver: Don't--don't say that.
Hope: Look, nothing I can say right now is gonna make it better. It's just gonna hurt. So I-I'm gonna go.
Oliver: I'll call you in the morning.
Hope: I wish you wouldn't.
Ridge: Sorry I'm late.
Brooke: That's all right. You had to see Steffy. Your mother was here.
Ridge: She didn't think I could tell you myself?
Brooke: (Laughs) Don't let her guilt-trip you into feeling like you're a bad father. You've done everything for that girl. You've been there. You're loyal, patient.
Ridge: She's my daughter. I, uh, I should have believed her.
Brooke: Yeah. Well, Steffy has nobody to blame but herself for her lack of credibility. And she should be the one to admit that.
Ridge: She's still so young in so many ways.
Brooke: Mm-hmm, she's young, and she's hurt, and she's angry. But most of all, she loves you, and she always will. So how'd it go?
Ridge: I apologized.
Brooke: And --
Ridge: She agreed to come back to Forrester.
Brooke: Oh, wow. That's great. Well, it's a start.
Ridge: I don't know, Logan. I just have this sick feeling that... nothing's ever gonna be the same. I broke my daughter's heart.
Brooke: She wouldn't.
Ridge: I'm not so sure.
Brooke: (Scoffs) There is no way Steffy would sell 25% of the company back to Bill Spencer. It was the high point of her life when she got it away from him.
Ridge: Yeah, well, I don't have very charitable feelings towards the guy either.
Brooke: She made her decision. She's coming back to work. So...
Ridge: So that you know, I stopped by to see Hope. Of course, she had to be told.
Brooke: How did she seem?
Ridge: All right. But she's not ready to come back.
Brooke: I just can't stand that she's not here with us.
Ridge: Unfortunately, it happens, Logan. 18-year-olds leave home, and they don't come back.
Brooke: Don't say that. Look, I-I could let her go if I had to, just not this way.
Steffy: All right, maybe Hope wants to punish you a little bit.
Oliver: Maybe she really wants it to be over.
Steffy: You never heard how she talked about you, Oliver.
Oliver: That was before. I betrayed her.
Steffy: Well, you didn't know. You didn't even mean to.
Oliver: I can't use that as an excuse anymore. If it really was Hope that I treated that way, it'd be just as bad.
Steffy: Look, you only did what you were led to do, all right. Brooke was in control. Now just give it some time. Y-y-you can afford to have some faith. It's not like she's seeing somebody by now.
Liam: I mean, I-- I used to be like you were. I-I-I wasn't rich or anything, and--and I didn't have a famous name, but my mom was really high in demand as a model, and she did okay. And, I mean, I got to go to school with a bunch of kids who were like me, privileged and golden. And--and then, uh, and then my mom's cancer came, you know, and--and the years of sickness, and the money trickled away. I coul--I-I couldn't-- I couldn't finish school, and I couldn't graduate with all the s--the stupid golden children that had everything. And--and I felt like-- I felt like the current was just dragging me further and further away, and nobody even noticed. And I-I wanted to be, like, you know what? Just--just wait. Just wait until life catches up with you. You know, wait until you run into that brick wall called reality. And I--you know, most of them never will. It--their parent's money is like a fortress. It's like--it's like an amusement park that they don't ever have to leave. And--and then I realized something. That the current that was... (Chuckles) that was dragging me away, it wasn't just the worst thing. It was also the best thing that could ever happen to me because it taught me that you can't--you can't be golden and empty. Your life has to be about something, even if you don't know what yet.
Liam: Do you, um, do you know why I'm telling you this?
Hope: Yeah. Yeah, I do.
Liam: I mean, you've--you've had a fall from grace, too, and you're standing outside of your old life, and you don't know how to get back in, and you're not sure that you want to. But I-I have this crazy idea that I want to tell you it's gonna be okay. It's gonna be more than okay, because--because, Hope, this is the first step towards something so much bigger and so much better than perfect SATs or the not very hard climb up the--up the ladder at the family business.
Hope: What? Why are you looking at me like that?
Liam: And I'm staring. I'm sorry. I'm totally staring. I don't mean to.
Hope: No, but... but why?
Liam: I don't know. I-I can't help it. I mean, I gotta tell ya, there's a part of me that hopes it's true, that you and your ex can't get back together. I know--I know that-- okay, I know that's wrong to say, but, oh, my God, I've never met anybody like you. I've never met somebody so beautiful and sweet and--and forgiving. I mean, I look at you, and I see--I see all things good. And--and I see something so pure and so lovely, and I-I want to be a part of that. And I... (Chuckles) I know--I know I probably shouldn't be around you. I know your dad thinks so.
Liam: And, uh, and I want-- I want to--I want to prove him wrong. I want to prove that I can be good for you. I want to show that I won't ever let that light in your eyes die out. And ju--I just, um, I hope I get to see you again. Hey, um, uh, one more thing.
