Hope: Liam! Liam! Hey.
Hope: That was amazing...
Hope: What your dad said about you. I mean, that was emotional. It kinda got to me.
Liam: I know. Me, too.
Liam: Well, no, wait. Wait. Don't go. Don't go.
Liam: I gotta make a speech.
Hope: Hey. Hey.
Hope: Just be yourself, okay? Be the Liam that I know, and you will be great. (Chuckles) (applause)
Bill: Ladies and gentlemen, you have heard my profound and deep feelings for my son. You have listened to my hopes and my dreams for him and for the future of Spencer publications. And now without any further ado, the main event. I want to introduce you to my son, William Spencer iii. (Applause)
Michael: Ladies and gentlemen, are you ready? You are about to meet the most anticipated young executive of the Spencer dynasty. He's third in the chain of incredibly successful William Spencers. Spencer friends, shareholders, business partners, are you ready? Ladies and gentlemen, here he is, William Spencer... the third!
Michael: His time has come. Let's get ready to rumble!
Audience: (Cheering) (camera shutters clicking)
Bill: You're on, son.
Liam: (Chuckles) uh, wow. Wow. This--this is, uh, something else, isn't it? Does my--does my dad know how to throw a party, or what? Right? I'm--I'm a very lucky person. I mean, I-I never knew who my father was or if I'd ever meet him or... or how he'd react if I did, and I--and I certainly never imagined that my dad would turn out to be somebody like "dollar" bill Spencer.
Liam: (Laughs) it's been quite a project for us, I think, cultivating this relationship. And this man has reached out to me in ways--ways that I never imagined, and in a flash, my life has changed, and this night-- this night, my god, you know, thi--this is incredible. Wow. Thank you so much. Everything feels so different already. (Laughs) I don't--I don't know how-- how true it is, tis whole, uh, "most eligible bachelor" thing. But, um, I will do my best to hold up my part. I will honor my father and the faith that he has put into me. You can bet on that. And to those of you with, uh, high hopes for the future of Spencer publications, our new hot, hip, sexy image, I will do everything in my power to make that a reality. Dad. Dad, come here for a second. I can't thank you enough for everything that you've done. You have given me a whole new life, and I'm so excited to start living it. (Camera shutters clicking)
Liam: Thank you so-- thank you so much. Thank you. (Applause)
Katie: Hey, sweetie.
Donna: Well, this is some night for your husband and your stepson.
Katie: Yes, it is.
Donna: But I-I haven't seen much of hope.
Katie: Oh, she's keeping a low profile. Bill prefers it that way.
Justin: That's gotta be hard for her.
Marcus: Well, she didn't even want to come, but Liam wanted her here. She's wearing that dress that he sent her.
Justin: A young man in love.
Marcus: Um, excuse me for a second.
Donna: Well, this can't be easy for hope.
Katie: She's involved with a Spencer. She'll get used to it.
Marcus: So... (sighs) you asked me to put you on the invited lit, which I did. I thought this was to get you some social networking, you know, so you can get a feeling on some work. So what are you doing hiding back here?
Amber: I'm just keeping my eyes open.
Man: William, congratulations.
Liam: Thank you so much. Thank you.
Bill: Well, son, congratulations.
Bill: You're fitting right in. Ahh, thank you. Let's toast to your success.
Liam: Oh, no, no. I don't want to-- I don't want to jinx it. I'm not much of a drinker.
Bill: Well, salud. Everyone, salud. For you. (Glasses clink)
Liam: Oh. Thank you. Thank you so much.
Michael: I've got a match to get to, but this was fun. William Spencer iii...
Michael: Good luck. Cheers. Bill, officially, he's ready to rumble now.
Bill: (Chuckles) thank you, Michael. I appreciate you making this night so special, my friend.
Michael: Thank you.
Bill: Take care.
Bill: This is the limelight, son. How do you like it so far?
Liam: It's--it's amazing. It's great. It's--it's--it's limey. Excuse me for a second.
Liam: Hey, there you are. I thought--I thought you were gonna wait backstage.
Hope: Liam, I shouldn't have come. I-I know you sent me this-- this beautiful dress and the flowers, and I love them, but I-I shouldn't be here.
Liam: (Stammers) that's crazy. Of course you should be here. You're my girl.
Hope: I-I-I'm not part of your image.
Liam: Look, okay, you and I, we're gonna get through this. You just have to work with me a little bit here, okay?
Hope: How am I supposed to do that?
Liam: I-I don't--I'll-- I'll introduce you, you know? The girl I'm in love with.
Hope: No, no. That-- honestly, that, I think, would be the worst thing you could do for both of us. Really.
Liam: Okay, all right. Okay. Just--just give me a few minutes, and we'll split. I promise.
Hope: Liam, you can't leave. Look around you. All these people are here to see you.
Liam: All right, I don't want you to go, okay? You matter more to me than any of this.
Hope: Well, this is your life now. You can't ignore it.
Liam: I am William Spencer iii. I can do whatever I want.
Woman: Liam, you are wanted for photos.
Liam: (Chuckles) okay, um--
Woman: We're your escort party.
Liam: Uh, cool.
Hope: You know what? Liam, just--just go with them. You should go.
Liam: I don't--
Woman: Come on, "Mr. Most eligible bachelor."
Liam: Okay, can you--
Woman: Your public awaits.
Liam: Can you guys-- can you just give me one second?
Hope: Liam, please just-- please just go.
Woman: Don't keep us waiting.
Liam: I love you.
Hope: I love you, too. That's not what tonight's about.
Liam: Okay, just come with E. Please come with me. Come on. Don't go.
Hope: (Mouthing words)
Bill: Come on up here. Ladies.
Man: Go up there with your father. Let's--let's--
Jarrett: Oh, yes. No, if we can--if we can just get one, um, actually, uh, y-yeah. And really, one more for the cover, young Liam. You and the ladies. Let's see it.
Man: There you go, Liam.
Man: Perfect. Right there. Right--great smile. Right over here, ladies. Face the camera.
Man: Come on, girls. Come on, girls.
Man: Right here. Perfect. Act like you like him.
Man: Right in the middle. Right there. Perfect.
Jarrett: Big--big smiles. Big smiles. That's it. You're happy. You're happy.
Man: Right here, ladies.
(Cell phone rings)
Amber: Hey, um, it's me. I think you should get over to hope's place.
Oliver: I was just gettin' ready to bring some proofs to Brooke. Where are you?
Amber: Where do you think? At Liam's big bash. You know, hope was here, but she's gone.
Oliver: W-what have you done?
Amber: I didn't do anything. It's just so not her scene. Liam is surrounded by press, and women are fawning all over him. (Chuckles) it was really getting to her.
Oliver: What is in it for you, amber? What do you want?
Amber: You know me. I'm just looking out for hope for the future... my future.
Liam: I'm sorry, can you just excuse me for one second?
Bill: So quite a night, huh?
Liam: Yeah, it's, um, amazing, dad. I can't thank you enough. Awesome.
Bill: Awesome. So what's bothering you?
Liam: (Sighs) you know, hope left. She's not happy.
Bill: I told you you shouldn't have had her come tonight.
Liam: I know. I know. But hope is a big part of my life. I mean, I can't just cut her out. You wouldn't cut Katie out.
Bill: Oh, come on now. You're comparing apples to oranges. I built my image a long time ago.
Liam: Okay, is that really necessary? I mean--
Bill: Listen, son, I created this event tonight around you, and you rose to the occasion. I am very proud of you.
Bill: You see all these people milling around here? Shareholders, press? They all want a word with you. And you want to throw that away over a sweet, naive, young girl? Very pretty, but just a girl. The world is waiting for you. But it's up to you.
Liam: So... okay, so being in love doesn't matter at all? I mean--
Bill: All right, listen. I know you don't want to hear this, but you don't know what love is. You are too young. You're too young. You've gotta give it time. I am offering you the keys to the kingdom. All you have to do-- thank you. All you have to do is grab them.
Bill: A toast to you and your success. (Glasses clink)
Liam: I don't want to disappoint you, dad. I just--
Bill: You're not going to disappoint me. You're a Spencer. (Doorbell rings)
Oliver: I thought you were at Liam's party.
Hope: Oh, I was, but I left.
Oliver: Oh. Well, I just brought these corrected proofs over for your mom.
Hope: Oh, um, you know, she's not here, but she should be here soon.
Oliver: Mind if I come in?
Hope: Okay. Just, um, just don't ask me about the party. I felt so out of place there.
Oliver: But you were there with Liam.
Hope: Yeah, but, I mean, after the speeches, it was almost impossible to get to him. I mean, everyone was surrounding him. He had girls fawning all over him. (Scoffs) I mean, he is the most eligible bachelor, so... (scoffs)
Oliver: Is there anything I can do?
Hope: No. I felt like an idiot. I never should have gone.
Oliver: Liam invited you.
Hope: Yeah, but, I mean, I don't think he had any idea what the night would be like. It was quite a production.
Oliver: Still, I'm sure he wanted you to--
Hope: No, just don't-- don't say it. He was so caught up in it, and-- and--and he should have been, you know? All the attention was on him, and, you know, everyone just wanted a piece of him.
Oliver: He'll make it up to you later.
Hope: It's-- it's not really about that. I... (sighs)
Oliver: You guys didn't fight or anything.
Hope: No. No, it's just-- everything in his life is changing. His whole world is different now.
Oliver: Things don't stay the same, hope. But two people can grow and change with each other. It didn't work out for us, but that was 'cause I screwed up. But you and Liam are strong. I'm sure you can work it out, if that's what you two want.
Hope: Thank you.
Liam: Can I-- can I talk to you for a second?
Man: William, congratulations. You'll be a great addition to Spencer.
Liam: Thank you. Thank you, sir.
Bill: Would you excuse us for a minute?
Bill: What's going on?
Liam: Um, I-I gotta leave. I can't stay here.
Bill: What is it?
Liam: You know it's incredible, everything you've done for me, this life you want me to have, but this image, dad, this--this image, this "most eligible bachelor" thing, it's not me, you know? And my head is spinning, and things are--
Bill: All right. All right.
Bill: I'll have a limo waiting for you downstairs.
Liam: Thank you. (Chuckles) it's been a hell of a night.
Bill: Yeah, it has. And you can be proud of yourself. I'm proud of you.
Hope: Thank you for listening, Oliver. You're a good friend. I was feeling pretty sorry for myself.
Oliver: Whatever you need. Sounds like you had a pretty crummy night.
Hope: Yeah. You know what? Um, I have to go.
Hope: I-I-I walked out on Liam. That--that wasn't fair.
Oliver: Hope, I wouldn't go back there. Put yourself through more of that?
Hope: But this was his big night, Oliver. I mean, I left, and I shouldn't have. I should-- I should be with him.
Oliver: You--you said you felt out of place. Anyways, it's probably over by now.
Hope: Maybe you're right. I--but you know what? I'll go to his apartment. I'll see if he's there. Oh, thank you. You're the best.
Katie: So you'll give me those proofs as soon as you can?
Man: Absolutely. I'll have 'em by next week.
Katie: Great. Thank you so much.
Man: Thank you.
Katie: Some evening, my love.
Bill: You think I went overboard?
Katie: You? Overboard? No.
Bill: Well, come on. I wanted to give him a grand and glorious entrance.
Katie: And you did.
Katie: One no one will soon forget, especially hope. She left.
Bill: Yeah, I know. Liam wasn't too happy.
Bill: Look, baby, I know she's your niece, but that relationship concerns me. She's going to be a stumbling block. You know, if down the road, he still feels that he found the perfect girl, then that--
Katie: Like you did?
Bill: Yeah. Exactly like I did.
Liam: (Grunts) oh. (Groans) oh, man. (Breathing heavily) whoa. Okay. Aah. (Sighs) (breathing heavily) (groans)
Liam: Okay. Oh. (Sighs) (groans)
Amber: Liam? Liam? Are you okay?
