Brooke: Oh, no. (Sighs) Not again. (Sighs)

Brooke: (Sighs) At this rate, we'll never make it to your mom's party.

Ridge: If this is your way of stalling, I'm not complaining.

Brooke: No. Unh-unh. You know what? No. I am not stalling. We really should go. Mwah. (Sighs)

Ridge: You almost seem like you're anxious to get over there.

Brooke: Oh, well, I just think you should spend as much time with your mom as possible. This is her big day, you know?

Ridge: Yeah, she's a very special woman, but she's not without her faults. And she has never, ever been fair to you.

Brooke: Oh, okay. (Sighs) Don't talk like that, because without her, you wouldn't be here. So I'm gonna put all my problems with Stephanie aside for the day. (Laughs) Let's go. Come on.

Ridge: Mnh-mnh.

Stephanie: Oh, hi. Yeah. Go right down there to the dining room. Thanks.

(Cell phone rings)

Stephanie: Oh.


Stephanie: (Sighs) Hello?

Hope: Hey, is this the birthday girl?

Stephanie: It is. And I hope you're coming over to help me celebrate.

Hope: Are you kidding? Of course I am. Um, I-I wanted to ask you, though... um, is it okay with you if I bring a guest?

Stephanie: Of course.

Hope: Well, um, it's Liam Cooper.

Stephanie: Really?

Hope: Yes. And I know it's your party, so you can say no if you want to. I know you don't like him. I mean, he-- he's Bill Spencerís son, and after what happened at the Jackie M. preview, I would totally understand.

Stephanie: Honey, if it would make you happy to bring him, then you bring him.

Hope: Are you sure? Because the other day, I mean, you--you said...

Stephanie: Well, a lot's happened since then.

Hope: Are you just saying yes because you know my mom won't like it?

Stephanie: (Laughs) I'm saying yes because I'm tired of saying no. I'll see you two later.

Hope: All right. Thank you. Bye.

Hope: (Sighs)

Hope: Hello. (Giggles (sighs)

Liam: Before you say anything...

Hope: Huh?

Liam: I owe you an apology.

Aggie: I-I'm confused. I thought that you and Hope we're finally working things out.

Oliver: We will. We're not there yet. Technically, we're headed in, uh, different directions.

Aggie: W-what do you mean?

Oliver: She's seein' someone else.

Nick: Hey, I don't know how you got this number, but you better lose it. These reporters are unbelievable. You should be happy about this Jackie M. fiasco. It takes the heat off you and your girl.

Oliver: Actually, Hope and I broke up. I guess that's one more thing you can blame on a Spencer.

Liam: I'm sorry, Hope. What my dad did to Bridget was so cold. (Stammers) And if I had any idea what he was up to, you know, I wouldn't have gone to that promo thing with him.

Hope: I know.

Liam: You do?

Hope: Mm-hmm. Oh, yeah, I've-- I've seen your dad in action.

Liam: Why does he do that? Why does he do that? Why does he tear people down like that? I mean, I want to work with him. I really do, but if this is what Spencer publications is all about, then...

Hope: Hey, you'll figure it out. You will. I have complete confidence in you.

Liam: Hmm.

Hope: If I didn't, then I-I wouldn't be asking you to come somewhere with me tonight.

Liam: Come with you where?

Hope: Stephanie's birthday party.

Liam: Ooh.

Nick: You and Hope broke up?

Oliver: She's forgiven me, but she hasn't forgotten. When she does, this guy will look like the meaningless distraction that he is.

Aggie: Well, you know, Hope doesn't seem like the kind of girl who would fall for a meaningless distraction kind of guy.

Nick: Does this distraction have a name?

Owen: Liam Cooper.

Aggie: Liam--isn't that that I.T. guy? Isn't he the one--?

Oliver: Yeah, that's him.

Aggie: Well, that doesn't make any sense. He's the one who started this whole mess. What is she thinking?

Oliver: That's who she is, Aggie. She's all about forgiving and moving on. I just thought it would be with me.

Liam: Stephanie's birthday party?

Hope: Yes, it's tonight at her house.

Liam: Oh, Boy.

Hope: Oh, come on, Liam. It'll be really fun. I promise.

Liam: (Valley girl accent) Oh, my God. So much fun. Like a firing squad.

Hope: It's not gonna be like a firing squad.

Liam: (Normal voice) Hope, it's so true. There are so many people in your family that are not too happy with me.

Hope: Well, then I vote we fix that, yeah?

Liam: Okay, all right, yeah. Fine, but going to a birthday party? Not the right idea.

Hope: Why?

Liam: Um, "A," Stephanie hates me. "B"--

Hope: No, she said it was okay if you came along.

Liam: You talked to Stephanie ab--

Hope: Yes, I-I just got off the phone with her, like, literally right before you walked into the room.

Liam: Oh, my-- I don't want to make trouble for you.

Hope: Don't you want to go with me?

Liam: Yeah. I want to be with you. Are you sure you really want me to come with?

Hope: Did... did I not make myself clear? I mean, is there--is--

Liam: (Laughs) I... (Sighs) I don't think your parents are gonna be okay with it. I mean, yeah, yes, they were coming around sort of. And then my dad pulled the whole thing at-- at the Jackie M. preview, and then Jarrett went after Bridget, and it's like--

Hope: Liam, nobody holds you responsible for the things that your dad does.

Liam: Why? Why not? I'm his son. I work for his company. Hell, I feel guilty.

Hope: Yeah, but you guys are nothing alike at all. In fact, I think that some of your sensitivity is going to rub off on him.

Liam: (Snorts) (Laughs) Okay.

Hope: What? You're laughing.

Liam: No. No.

Hope: Okay, it sounds dumb. Okay.

Liam: I--yes, it does, but that's one of y favorite things about you. You always look for the bright side in everything.

Hope: All I wanted was for you to take me to a birthday party.

Liam: Oh, God. (Sighs) All right. All right.

Hope: All right?

Liam: Here I go, forging into battle...

Hope: It is not gonna be that bad.

Liam: With a beautiful damsel at my side. I will slay any dragon.

Hope: You are so weird.

Liam: I know.

Hope: (Laughs) Thank you.

 (Cell phone rings)

Stephanie: Oh, excuse me. (Sighs) (Rings)

Stephanie: Tell me you're not coming.

Brooke: Of course I'll be there. Don't be ridiculous. Unless, of course, you've called it off. Have you? Because, you know, Stephanie, the more I think about it, I know you want to be around your family and all, but is a party really a good idea?

Stephanie: It's my birthday.

Brooke: (Sighs) (Quietly) You just found out you have cancer. Did you tell anybody yet?

Stephanie: No, I have not. And until I do, I want you to keep your lip zipped.

(Phone hangs up)

Aggie: You're not giving up.

Oliver: Are you kidding? (Scoffs) The way I feel about Hope? No way.

Nick: How's she feel about you? 'Cause you mentioned she has a new distraction.

Oliver: That'll all play itself out. Until then... let's call it a strategic retreat.

Aggie: (Laughs)

Oliver: Hope loves me. She's just not ready to be with me yet.

Aggie: Well, I-I understand that you don't want to push her, but if you wait too long...

Oliver: Hope can't end up with the bad boy. It might be exciting for a while, but it won't last.

Nick: What does "Bad" mean in this case? Like, dangerous or evil?

Oliver: You consider Bill Spencer dangerous?

Nick: What does Bill Spencer have to do with this?

Oliver: He's Liamís dad.

Nick: Liam is Bill Spencerís kid?

Oliver: Yeah, and you don't see him splashing that all over his headlines, do you?

Nick: Hypocrite.

Oliver: His kid-- not much better.

Aggie: Well, I-- you know what I don't understand? Why Hope would want to be with somebody like that.

(Indistinct conversation)

Stephanie: Whip, I'm so happy that you were able to come.

Whip: (Sighs)

Stephanie: I know you're just inundated down at the office.

Whip: Yeah.

Hope: It does not look like a castle.

Liam: Uh, to me it does.

Hope: (Laughs)

Liam: (Sighs)

Stephanie: Hey!

Hope: Happy birthday!

Stephanie: (Laughs) Thank you. Thank you.

Hope: Mm-hmm.

Stephanie: What is he doing here?

Hope: You said-- you said it was okay, so--

Stephanie: I'm just teasing.

Liam: (Chuckles nervously)

Stephanie: (Laughs)

Hope: (Laughs) Okay.

Stephanie: Welcome.

Liam: Oh, yes. Thank you, Ma'am.

Stephanie: (Laughs) I want you just to relax, okay? There's plenty of great food. Just indulge yourself.

Hope: Thank you.

Liam: Okay, thanks.

Thomas: Nobody said we could bring dates.

Marcus: Hey, who invited that fool to the party, Man?

Thorne: Who, Liam? Cut him some slack. He's a good kid.

Marcus: Uh-huh.

Eric: Hi, Honey.

Hope: Hey, Eric. Pam, how are you?

Pam: Hi, Sweetheart.

Hope: Oh, you guys-- you guys know Liam.

Eric: Yes, yes, we do.

Liam: Hi. Yes, um, Mr. Forrester, I'm so sorry about what my dad did to your daughter. I had no idea what he had planned.

Hope: He really-- he didn't know.

Liam: And I'm-- I'm honored to be here.

Pam: This is a first, you know. Stephanie has never thrown a birthday party for herself before.

Hope: Never?

Pam: Nope.

Eric: No, you know, she's given many, many parties here for many, many people, but never one for herself, so I don't want anything to mess this up.

Pam: Well, then you should have hired me as the caterer. Did you see those desserts?

Brooke: (Sighs) I want to call Bridget again.

Ridge: Oh, come on. She told you she's fine. She's busy with the baby.

Brooke: (Sighs) Yeah, I know what she's doing. She's hiding out, and I don't blame her. What Bill did was terrible.

Stephanie: Hi. (Chuckles)

Brooke: Oh, Stephanie.

Ridge: Happy birthday, Mother.

Stephanie: Thanks, Honey.

Brooke: (Sighs) We are so happy to be here with you today.

Ridge: Are Kristen and Felicia gonna make it?

Stephanie: No, no. And I'm so disappointed.

Brooke: What? Oh, no, that's terrible. I'm so sorry.

Ridge: Well, maybe next year.

Stephanie: Yeah, um, why don't you get a drink? We've got great martinis. Go in there and enjoy yourselves.

Ridge: I think I will. I think I will.

Brooke: (Sighs)

Stephanie: (Chuckles) That's an order. I want to see nothing but smiling faces around here.

Oliver: Hope's got a lot of voices in her head telling her things between us couldn't work. But those voices can't drown out what she feels in her heart. We love each other.

Nick: Well, maybe you should do something big just to remind her of that.

Oliver: I tried that, but I think now it's just-- it's best to be patient.

Nick: Well, be careful of that. She may think you lost interest.

Aggie: Sometimes the best way to show that you care is to go easy. It's a risk. But if you've got faith in your connection, it's worth it. It's worth taking that risk.

Oliver: I do.

Aggie: So how can I help you?

Oliver: Tell me I'm not crazy.

Aggie: (Laughs) I think I just did that.

Oliver: Then tell me again and again and every time I call you in the middle of the night 'cause I'm terrified I'm blowing the best thing that ever happened to me.

Aggie: Hey, if you're heart is telling you to hang in there, then you've gotta trust it. If it's meant to be, it will happen. Hmm?

Oliver: Thanks, Sis.

Aggie: Yeah.

Brooke: Gathering your thoughts?

Stephanie: Actually, I was doing some math. I was just kind of trying to figure out what the distance is. How far down do you think it is from here to the floor?

Brooke: You're not thinking what I think you're thinking. Look, I know this is difficult for you, but you have to remain strong.

Stephanie: (Sighs heavily) (Whispering) Stop. Stop. Stop. Stop. Go back downstairs and act normal, and stop looking at me with those big dewy eyes. And stop being so nice. People will suspect something.

Brooke: I'm supposed to act like nothing's changed?

Stephanie: (Quietly) Well, for you, nothing has changed.

Brooke: (Quietly) You have cancer.

Stephanie: Me.

Brooke: Yes, you. And you can't seem to accept it. You think if you tell anybody and you--you tell your family that it's gonna become real. Well, it is real. I know, because I was there with you at the doctor, remember? (Sighs) This is why you brought your family here, so just tell them. Just do it. And until then, the only sympathy you're gonna get is from me, whether you like it or not.

Stephanie: Who appointed you hall monitor?

Brooke: (Scoffs)

Nick: You've gotta hand it to the kid for hanging in there.

Aggie: You don't think Oliverís being a little unrealistic?

Nick: No.

Aggie: So it was okay to encourage him then?

Nick: It's probably just what he needed.

Aggie: Yeah. But, you know, if there's no real shot--

Nick: You made the right call. Like you said, if it's meant to be...

Aggie: Is it?

Nick: With enough faith and trust, anything's possible, right?

Aggie: You really believe that?

Nick: I'd like you to go stand in front of that mirror, please.

Aggie: What?

Nick: Stand in front of that mirror. Put that down. Walk right over there.

Aggie: You're so strange.

Nick: Stand in front of that mirror. Thank you. There you go. Remember who you used to see? Huh? The Aggie I first met. We peeled these layers back. Look at you now. Now that... that goes to show you anything's possible with enough faith. (Chuckles)

Aggie: Things are... changing between us, aren't they, Nick? Something's different.

Ridge: You were gone a while.

Brooke: Chatting with your mother.

Ridge: Chatting, huh?

Brooke: It means a lot for her to have everybody together.

Ridge: You're incredible, Logan-- everything you've been doing for Mother.

Stephanie: Yes, you're on your way? Oh, great. Yes, that's the correct-- that's the correct address.

Taylor: Stephanie, we have a problem.

Stephanie: Okay, I'll see you soon. Thanks. Bye.

Pam: Liam Cooper?

Stephanie: What?

Pam: (Scoffs)

Taylor: You didn't tell Hope she could bring him, did you?

Stephanie: Yes, I did.

Taylor and Pam: Why?

Stephanie: It seemed important to her.

Pam: (Scoffs)

Taylor: Well, certainly you had to know that that would cause some tension.

Stephanie: Not for me.

Pam: But he's the whole reason Forresterís been surrounded by paparazzi for a month, Steph.

Stephanie: Oh, everybody's moved on. She's forgiven him. Steffy's forgiven him. What's the problem?

Pam: (Scoffs)

Taylor: You're-- you're not holding a grudge... today?

Stephanie: It's my birthday. Please. The only thing I want to hold-- excuse me--is a martini. Thank you. Ahh. Which reminds me. Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, may I have your attention, please?

Whip: What's going on?

Stephanie: First of all, I want to say thank you for coming here this evening. I'm just delighted and tickled pink that you're here to celebrate my birthday.

Eric and Thorne: (Chuckle)

Stephanie: And then I guess I should say that all the years that I have been married on and off again to Eric, I never allowed him to make a big celebration on my birthday, but this year I decided to say yes, because I was afraid of saying no.

Eric: And I was tired of hearing it.

All: (Laugh)

Stephanie: This year, however, my birthday wish is not going to be that things would turn out exactly as I want them to be. My birthday wish this year is that we will all find joy and happiness in things exactly as they are. After all, we only have the moment. And now I have something to tell you. Most of you are going to be shocked. I really didn't anticipate having to say this on my birthday. But the time as come... and you need to know.
