Brooke: Yeah, I'm--I'm not here for long. I just came by to do some of this.
Brooke: Okay, that smile-- please tell me it means...
Oliver: Hope and I are back together. (Laughs)
Brooke: (Sighs) (Laughs)
Ridge: So, Thomas, how was Paris?
Thomas: I wish I knew. I was too busy at International to get out much.
Steffy: Aw. All work and no play makes my handsome brother... (Mumbles indistinctly)
Thomas: So glad to be back and get ragged on by my annoying kid sister...
Thomas: For my lack of a love life.
Taylor: Wow, they've been like this ever since I've picked them up at the airport.
Thomas: Hey, we're just making up for lost time, right, sis?
Thomas: And I've got a bone to pick with you, too, Dad. Kicking Steff out of the company? What were you thinking?
Taylor: Sweetheart, that was a very painful time for your father and your sister. But there-- that's all behind them now.
Steffy: Well, not that I don't intend to make Dad feel guilty every chance I get. What matters now is that I am back at Forrester, and I am ready to kick some butt as part owner.
Thomas: Owner? (Laughs) Wait, what are you talking about?
Ridge: Actually, there have been several significant changes around here.
Ridge: One-- Donna no longer owns half of your grandfather's shares.
Steffy: Yeah, Bill Spencer bought them from her.
Ridge: The guy's all about stirring up trouble for this family. Well, he's not getting away with it this time. The Forresters are firing back in a very big way.
Justin: What's the big emergency?
Justin: (Sighs) Spencer Publications is being sued.
Liam: Wha--what? I don't know what this has to do with me. I'm an intern.
Bill: With a big mouth. You just couldn't keep it zipped about that tribute, huh? So now I'm dealing with a lawsuit.
Bill: You don't value your life very much, do you?
Liam: Yeah, well, I value the truth, sir.
Justin: Bill, I realize this looks bad. I'm gonna do whatever I can to make--
Bill: You'll do better than that. You got Spencer Publications into this mess. You're gonna get us out.
Bill: Whatever it takes.
Justin: All right. (Sighs)
Bill: Hold on, Slick.
Bill: I'm not through with you yet.
Steffy: Well, I'm guessing Dollar Bill isn't too happy with the Forresters right now.
Ridge: Our attorneys assured me we have a very strong case.
Thomas: Wait, wait, wait. I-I don't see what a lawsuit against Spencer has to do with Steffy saying she's an owner in Forrester. Or... were you just trying to get a rise out of me?
Ridge: Your mother thought that I was wrong in my actions that I took against Steffy. It turns out she was right. So to show her love and support, Taylor gave her shares of the company to your sister.
Taylor: It was something I needed to do, Thomas, to get our family through a very bad time.
Ridge: Thomas, you've proved yourself in this company many times. You'll be an owner someday. But we wouldn't be here if Steffy hadn't gotten this company back from Spencer. That's the reason my name's on the door and the reason we're working together as a family again.
Steffy: You know, it actually feels so good being back here at the company, honestly. And it's a lot easier with Brooke keeping a low profile. Now let's hope she sticks with that.
Brooke: Oh, my God. Look at me, tearing up like this. (Sighs)
Oliver: As long as they're happy tears.
Brooke: (Laughs) (Sniffles) Yeah. I was just so afraid that she wouldn't get past this. (Sighs) But now that she's letting you back in her life, it means that she's healing.
Oliver: Uh, the necklace-- the one I gave Hope, do you still have it?
Brooke: Oh. Um... (Sighs) Oh, she was devastated and she threw this at me. It was broken, so I had it fixed in case she'd want it back.
Oliver: Thank you.
Brooke: Look, I know it's going to take some time. But the fact that she's forgiving you-- maybe I'm not too far behind.
Bill: There is nothing that I hate more than a stool pigeon, and by selling out one of my subordinates, you are the very definition. So if I ever see you in this building again, you will get a lot more than a tongue lashing. Do you understand me?
Liam: Well, you know what? That works out just fine for me, 'cause I'm an unpaid intern. Being sacked by you hurts about as much as a mosquito bite. But seeing what this sabotage tribute has done to Hope Logan, somebody like that has nothing to do with any of this, and yet she continues to pay the price while you and Spencer Publications reap the rewards of the story. How do you sleep at night?
Bill: Like a baby.
Brooke: Hope. (Sighs) Hi, honey. Oliver was just telling me the news about you two.
Oliver: I hope you don't mind I know how much it would mean to your mom.
Brooke: Must have been a very romantic evening. (Laughs)
Hope: It was. It was beyond romantic... beyond words, really. But I-I think if I had to choose one, it--it would be...
Hope: Moon... (Laughs) "Moon-derful," yeah.
Brooke: (Laughs) Okay. What is he talking about?
Hope: Um... uh, well, in addition to all of the wonderful things that Oliver has done for me... (Laughs) Uh, last night, he--he wrote the Chinese symbol for "Hope" on the moon. I mean--I mean, not-- you know, not on the moon, really, but when you look through the telescope, that--that's what it seems like. (Giggles) I-I didn't think that that night could get any better. But when you kissed me, all those horrible visions that I had were gone. And they just went away. All those... bad dreams were over. Um... almost all of them. Mom, I'm sorry. I-I-I wish things could be the way they used to be, but, um...
Brooke: No, I... (sighs) I understand. It's just... you need a little more time. I'm just happy for you and Oliver. (Sighs)
Taylor: I don't want you to be upset about this, Thomas.
Thomas: You gave all your shares to my sister. (Sets mug on table) It's kind of a shock, Mom.
Taylor: Well, something major had to be done at the time.
Thomas: For Steffy, because Dad kicked her out. I agree that was a mistake, but I'm not sure about the way you handled it. I mean, it's gonna take some getting used to-- Steffy, a big-time owner.
Steffy: All right, all right, all right. My first order of business-- as a part owner of this company, I'd like to propose to the C.E.O. that we give my big brother a raise and a promotion. Hmm. I'm thinking, like, Thomas Forrester, Vice President of Development, huh? How does that sound?
Ridge: Sounds like I should have thought of it myself.
Steffy: Hey. (Laughs)
Ridge: Congratulations, Mr. Vice President.
Taylor: Wow. Well, this is turning into a banner day for the Forresters. That's so great.
Ridge: And to think, just a few days ago, Bill Spencer was trying to get his hands on Steffy's shares.
Thomas: I hope you laughed in his face.
Steffy: Actually, Dad came to my rescue, not that I needed rescuing.
Ridge: The man's a shark. He's not gonna stop coming after your 25%.
Steffy: Yeah, that's true. But, Dad, Forrester means way too much to me. And as long as I have your love and respect, and I know that you support me, you don't have to worry about Bill Spencer. I promise you, I am gonna do everything I can to make this the best time for the Forresters. I promise.
Ridge: I'll get a memo out to everyone letting them know about your promotion.
Steffy: Ooh. And I will call Dollar Bill, see if his blood pressure's through the stratosphere yet.
Taylor: Mm, a lawsuit like this would not be in his best interest. Only it's not going away. We all know what Bill and his lackeys did, and we can prove it.
Steffy: Yeah, with Liam's help.
Thomas: Liam? Liam, the I.T. guy?
Steffy: Okay, well, he apologized.
Ridge: I don't trust him. He's a weird kid. And get this-- he's actually claiming I'm his dad.
Taylor: Why would he do that?
Ridge: Because he never really knew his real dad, so he comes to Forrester, has it in his head he's gonna find him, and he just happens to pick me.
Thomas: What, is he trying to shake you down?
Ridge: I don't know. I can't figure the guy out. I don't really know what he's after.
Bill: Well, you're just a real bleeding heart, aren't you?
Liam: Yeah, well, at least I have a heart.
Bill: No, what you have is a missed opportunity. You had a chance to do well for yourself here. But instead you had to be the hero. Trying to impress Hope Logan, are we? Got yourself a little puppy crush, Romeo?
(Knock on door)
Brooke: Coast clear?
Ridge: Hey, beautiful.
Brooke: Well, I stopped by a few minutes ago, and you were otherwise occupied. (Laughs)
Ridge: Thomas just got back from Paris. We were just catching up.
Brooke: So how is he?
Ridge: He's good. He's glad to be home.
Brooke: Even under less-than-ideal circumstances?
Ridge: All scandals have a shelf life. Eventually, the paparazzi go on to torture somebody else, and everything goes back to the way it was.
Brooke: Well, not everything. But I do have some good news... (Sighs) About Hope and Oliver.
Ridge: They're back together?
Brooke: Oliver wouldn't give up. He was determined to win Hope back whatever it took. (Sighs)
Ridge: I'm happy for Hope...
Ridge: But especially for you, Logan. I know how much this means to you.
Ridge: She's been through so much. I just hope Oliver respects that and takes it slow.
Oliver: Still no visions in your head when we kiss, right?
Hope: No. The only thing I think about when I kiss you is you.
Oliver: You know what I think about when I kiss you?
Hope: Um... how adorable I am?
Oliver: Especially in the moonlight.
Oliver: Oh, we never got to these last night.
Hope: Ooh, fortune cookies.
Oliver: We forgot about them. We were having so much fun... till "Pose" started playing.
Hope: (Laughs) Okay, I'm sorry, but that was hilarious, Oliver. I think I liked when you were trying to get to the mp3 player, and you tripped over the candle and just threw the mp3 player in the woods.
Oliver: I was afraid hearing that song would ruin everything for you.
Hope: Nothing could spoil that night for me, okay? Every moment was better than the next, you know? It's all because of you. I feel like we have so much to look forward to now.
Oliver: What do you bet...
Oliver: One of your fortunes says that exact thing?
Oliver: Or not.
Hope: All right.
Hope: Oh. The Chinese symbol for "Hope."
Oliver: Like this one... and the one I'm hoping you're ready to wear again.
Brooke: I wanted this so much. (Sighs) And now it's happening. Hope is picking up the pieces of her life and moving forward.
Ridge: Sweetheart, she's a strong, resilient young woman. That's the way you raised her.
Brooke: Yes, but I also hurt her. I hurt her more than she's ever been hurt in her life. And I didn't mean to. But now that she's been able to forgive Oliver, maybe good things will happen for her and me also. It may not happen overnight, but it will happen.
Ridge: Of course, it will. Love can do extraordinary things.
Oliver: You okay? You're not upset I got it back from your mom, are you?
Hope: No. No.
Oliver: Just surprised, right?
Hope: (Clears throat)
Oliver: After last night, I was hoping--
Hope: Hey, you know what, Oliver? Um, don't take this the wrong way. I love you so much for wanting me to wear it again, you know? But, um... (Sighs) It--it's just...
Oliver: Too soon?
Hope: Yeah. I'm sorry.
Oliver: You have nothing to be sorry about. This necklace is a symbol for both of us. And after everything that's happened, it doesn't represent what it once did, and I am committed to fixing that. I'll hold onto it until you're ready, okay?
Hope: Okay. (Laughs)
Oliver: I know we're not 100%, but...
Oliver: I love-- I love you so much.
Oliver: Don't ever forget that.
Hope: Mm. (Sighs)
Bill: Must be nice spending your days helping little old ladies cross the street.
Liam: Yeah, well, I have a Boy Scout complex.
Bill: Well, why don't you take that Boy Scout complex and get yourself a job flipping burgers? Or here's an idea for you. Maybe you can get the Forresters to adopt you since you're so tight with them these days. Get out.
Liam: (Sighs) You know what? Not that it's any of your business, but my father happens to be a Forrester.
Liam: Yeah. Yeah. First I thought it was Ridge. But my mom died recently and she--
Bill: All right, let me-- let me just stop you right there. And I don't want to hear your sob story. Everybody loses their mother one way or another.
Liam: Wow, you really are heartless.
Bill: Well, at least I'm not delusional. You obviously are if you are going around making the assertion that Ridge Forrester is your long-lost daddy.
Liam: No. No. It's not like that. On her deathbed, my other told me that I would find my father at Forrester Creations, okay?
Bill: And you just happened to pick Ridge?
Liam: I'm not trying to scam anyone.
Bill: Sure you're not. You're pathetic. Now beat it, you little con artist... now.
Liam: (Inhales sharply) Come on!
Bill: (Sighs) Little weasel. No wonder his father wanted nothing to do with him. (Sighs)
