Taylor: Steffy, oh, my gosh. I have been looking everywhere for you. Your father and I have been calling you for hours.
Steffy: I-I-I know. I'm sorry. I-I texted you.
Taylor: Yeah, I know. "I'm alive."
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, I am alive.
Taylor: (Scoffs) I'm just glad I found you. Are you okay?
Steffy: Uh, yeah, it's just been a crazy day.
Taylor: Well, I know what happened with Bill.
Steffy: Yeah, he went back to Katie.
Taylor: Your father told me. Are you okay?
Steffy: Um, honestly, I-I almost died.
Taylor: Look, Sweetheart, I know this has been very difficult for you.
Steffy: No, Mom, I literally--I almost died. You know, if it wasn't for Liam, I would be dead.
Hope: So you save Steffy's life?
Liam: Yeah, I guess.
Hope: She--she was in the bathtub?
Liam: She--well, no. She slipped getting into the bathtub. She hit her head, knocked herself out. And she was underwater, totally unconscious.
Hope: And you pulled her out.
Liam: Yeah, and, I, uh, I started C.P.R. Um, and I don't even-- I don't even know how I remembered what to do.
Hope: Well, luckily for Steffy, you did. (Sighs)
Liam: Yeah. And--and eventually, she--she started, you--you--you know, choking, like coughing up water.
Hope: Oh, my God.
Liam: I was so grateful to hear that sound. I couldn't believe it.
Hope: So she's okay?
Hope: It must have been so scary for you.
Liam: (Laughs) Look at my hands.
Hope: Oh, my God. They're still shaking.
Liam: Um, I'm sure it was scarier for her than it was for me, but, you know...
Hope: Liam, Steffy would have died if you hadn't been there. Do you realize that?
Liam: Yeah, I'm--yeah. I mean, I--you know, it's-- it's just good I came by when I did. Otherwise, it could have been a very different day.
Hope: Wow. Liam, I can't even imagine what that experience must have been like for you two.
Jackie: Oh, I think I hear Nicky.
Jackie: We are in trouble.
Owen: Maybe he's gonna send us to our room. (Chuckles)
Jackie: Oh, could we get that lucky?
(Car door slams)
Owen: Well, we'll see about that one. Mm. (Chuckles)
Nick: Don't you two ever get tired of that?
Owen: Um, no.
Nick: Oh. It's just me then.
Jackie: Oh, Nicky. We need to find you a woman.
Nick: No, I think we need to find you a house to live in that isn't mine. How's that going, by the way?
Liam: It was just pure luck that I happened to be there. You know, the reason I stopped by was to-- to return my dad's key.
Hope: He had a key to her place?
Liam: Yeah. I mean, he wanted me to-- to go give it back to her. I mean, part of the reason I stopped by was I kind of wanted to-- to check on her, just to see how she was doing after my dad basically broke it off, you know.
Hope: Well, that was nice. I know she was really messed up.
Liam: So that doesn't, like, upset you?
Hope: No. Not all, Liam. That's the kind of guy you are. You're caring and compassionate. You're a good friend.
Hope: I'm serious. I mean, if you hadn't been there, just imagine--
Liam: I-I don't--I don't want to think about that.
Hope: Yeah, okay. Me, either.
Taylor: Steffy, you-- you could have drowned.
Steffy: No, Mom, I know, but I'm okay.
Taylor: I just don't-- I don't know what I would have done if I had ever lost you.
Steffy: No, Mom, it's fine. Mom, I'm fine, okay? You had your trip. I had my slip.
Taylor: (Scoffs) Not funny. Not funny. I lost Phoebe. I almost lost Thomas, now you--
Steffy: No, nothing happened. I'm okay.
Taylor: Thank God. Thank God you're okay.
Steffy: Well, yeah, thanks to Liam.
Taylor: He just happened to be there?
Steffy: Yeah, luckily for me. You know, he found me. I was in the bathtub knocked out under the water. You know I didn't even remember anything, but he--he pulled me out, and when I looked up at him, it was one of the most beautiful sights I've ever seen. You know, Liam rescued me. He saved my life.
Steffy: Oh, Mom. (Sighs)
Hope: Wow, you saved Steffy's life. She must be so grateful.
Liam: Well, it all happened so fast. I mean, I think, at this point, Steffy's just grateful to be alive.
Hope: She's alive because of you.
Liam: Man, Hope, you should have seen it. When I got there, and she's just-- she's just under the water, laying there unconscious...
Liam: You know, I pulled her out, I did mouth-to-mouth, and then finally when it started to look like she was gonna be okay, I kind of, like, I freaked out a little bit on the inside, you know?
Hope: Yeah? Oh.
Liam: My heart started racing. I started thinking... (Stammers) What if it was you, you know?
Hope: (Sighs) It must have been fate that you were there today.
Liam: Yeah, I guess. I don't know.
Hope: (Chuckles) Wait till my dad hears about this. You're gonna rack up so many points with him. (Laughs)
Liam: (Laughs) I don't know. I-I think that any one of us would have done the same thing. It was more reflexive than anything else.
Hope: Oh, Liam, give yourself some credit.
Liam: Oh, come on.
Hope: You saved somebody's life today. That's a big deal. It's huge. You're a hero. You're my boyfriend, the hero.
Hope: (Laughs) You're so amazing.
Liam: (Laughs) Okay, all right.
Liam: Okay, stop. Ohh. (Chuckles)
Hope: So, um, when you found Steffy, she didn't happen to be wearing, like--like a full-on wetsuit... (Sighs) Or anything?
Liam: (Laughs) What, like, in the tub?
Hope: A bikini maybe? Something?
Liam: Oh, no. No dice.
Hope: Oh, good.
Hope: So there was a naked Steffy in your arms today.
Hope: Oh, it's gonna take a while before that image gets out of my head. (Sighs)
Liam: Hey, no, hey, but if it makes you feel any better, I didn't actually look.
Hope: (Laughs) Sure you didn't.
Liam: (Stammers) I really didn't. I mean, first of all, I wasn't thinking about that, but I put a robe on her right away.
Hope: Oh, you're a gentleman and a hero.
(Cell phone alert chimes)
Hope: Oh. Oh, no.
Hope: One of the hard drives crashed. I gotta go deal with it.
Hope: You're amazing. I'm so proud of you. You're wonderful. I love you.
Nick: While the two of you were in my house feeding each other grapes or whatever it is you do here, I had a very interesting meeting.
Jackie: With whom?
Nick: With Bill Spencer.
Owen: Wait, I thought that Jackie was gonna deal with him since the two of you have that antipathy going on.
Nick: He gave me a call out of the blue.
Jackie: Really? What did he want?
Nick: He wants to do some business together.
Owen: Wow, I-- that's good, right?
Nick: Sure could be.
Jackie: Well, yeah. I mean, Bill's support is exactly what our company could do with right now.
Owen: Yeah, but Bill hasn't exactly been in our camp.
Jackie: (Chuckles) Especially since he came onto your boat and punched you.
Nick: Well, that was quite a while ago, Mother.
Jackie: Yes, but it's still surprising, isn't it, that he'd want to do business with us?
Nick: (Chuckles) As it turns out, it's Bill-- the one who got punched this time.
Owen: Oh, wait, wait. Did you finally knock him out?
Nick: No, it wasn't me. It was Forrester, and he's not very happy about it.
Jackie: Ridge? Really? (Chuckles)
Nick: That's one of the reasons he wanted to see me.
Owen: We're not exactly following.
Nick: Well, he'd like to get some revenge. And he'd also like to buy Jackie M.
Jackie: (Laughs) He wants to buy our company?
Nick: (Chuckles) Yeah. And I'm thinking of taking him on as a partner.
Taylor: Honey, I'm so sorry. You've been through so much.
Steffy: Yeah, but you warned me. Yeah, I didn't understand how hard it would be for Bill to walk away from his marriage. I mean, I didn't listen to you. I was just so convinced that his--his love for me was real, like mine was for him.
Taylor: Well, I-I don't think Bill was lying to you.
Steffy: Mom, he-- he said he would be with me.
Taylor: I mean his love for you. It's just there was a-- a bond that-- that was greater.
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, the Logan bond-- Logan stranglehold. Yeah.
Liam: Hey, Dr. Hayes.
Taylor: Thank you. Oh, my God. (Laughs) You are a hero.
Liam: Oh, okay.
Taylor: I am forever indebted to you. You saved my daughter's life. (Sighs)
Nick: Mother, stop.
Owen: Why would Bill Spencer want to buy our company?
Jackie: (Stammers) And why would you consider selling any part of Jackie M. to him? You can't stand him.
Nick: Money. With that kind of cash and power, we can take this company anywhere we want to.
Nick: Now Spencer has his own reasons. I have no idea. Something's going on with him and Ridge.
Jackie: Well, yeah, if Ridge actually struck him. I mean, he's not a violent man. Do you think this has to do with Steffy?
Nick: Mother, stop.
Owen: Well, it is especially odd after rescuing Brooke. If it wasn't for him and his jet, that never would have happened.
Jackie: Look, all I know is that Bill must have done something to make Ridge angry enough to hit him.
Nick: I have no idea why Forrester went after him. All I know is this man's blood is boiling, and he wants to join forces with us. He wants to bring Katie on board. Now you know, Mother, she was never better than when she was running Forrester.
Jackie: Okay. (Sighs) If we do this, you promise me that you will not let Bill make his wife our C.E.O.
Nick: That will never happen.
Nick: But, Mother, think about his offer. Combined with the publication and his media network behind us, we can be the most prominent fashion house in L.A. Now that sounds pretty damn good to me.
Liam: Dr. Hayes, don't--don't make me out to be a superhero.
Taylor: No, you--no.
Liam: I mean, anyone in my position would have done the same thing.
Taylor: You were there for my daughter when she needed you.
Steffy: Well, he says he came by to give me back Bill's key, but I know you came by to check up on me.
Liam: No, that's true. I-I did. I know that my dad hurt Steffy pretty badly, so...
Steffy: Yeah, but it was my choice, and I was warned.
Liam: Well, hard to listen when you're crazy in love.
Steffy: Yeah, more like stupid in love.
Liam: Don't beat yourself up.
Steffy: Yeah, I guess I just picked the wrong guy, huh?
Liam: I think that my dad felt a lot of things that he didn't expect to feel.
Taylor: Don't make excuses for him, Liam.
Liam: So--I--no, I'm not. I-I'm really not. I--he never should have gotten involved with Steffy, but he's not a bad guy.
Liam: If he were, she never would have gotten so hung up on him.
Taylor: Oh, wow. I see politics in your future.
Liam: (Laughs) Stop it.
Taylor: No, you're a very good conciliator.
Steffy: Wow, that's high praise from the renowned Dr. Hayes, huh? No, but, honestly, Liam, you deserve it. You know not only did you save me, but you really made me think clearly about not being bitter or angry, not going after revenge. I mean, what's the point? It's not gonna make me happy.
Taylor: That's excellent advice.
Steffy: Uh, well, yes, it is, I think. I think that--just-- I don't know, this is a fresh start for me. I'm just really gonna focus on myself and--and my friends and my place and work. I mean, what was I thinking? It is great to just feel young and free. Why would I ever want to be the doting wife of a mega mogul when...? (Sighs) I don't know. It's just--it's crazy to me.
Taylor: I-I can't even tell you how--how happy I am to hear you say that.
Steffy: Yeah, Mom, I lost my way for a bit, and I'm sorry if I let you down.
Taylor: No, stop it. No. You cannot let me down ever. Ever.
Steffy: I know.
Taylor: I love you no matter what.
Steffy: I love you, too, but, Mom, this experience really changed me. I mean, I really thought Bill was the one, but he betrayed me, and he lied, and you warned me, and so did Dad, and I didn't listen, and I'm sorry. But, Liam, you got through to me. You know, you made me realize that it's time to move on, and that's-- that's what I'm gonna do
Taylor: I can't even tell you how happy I am to hear you saying these things. Thank you. Thank you so much, Liam, for everything you've done for my daughter. You're the kind of young man I think, uh, she should be spending more time around. Okay, well, I've gotta go.
Steffy: All right.
Taylor: I'll talk to you later, Sweetie.
Steffy: Wow, my, uh, my mom and I actually agree on something.
Steffy: You know, you're exactly the kind of guy I want to spend my time with...
Jackie: (Sighs) Okay, so how did you leave things with Mr. Spencer?
Nick: There's been no commitment made. He's going to get back to me with a formal proposal to buy in as 50% partner.
Jackie: Half? Half of our company? (Scoffs) Uh, wow. Look, don't get me wrong. I-I know what a huge infusion of cash would do for us right now, and having Spencer publications' support, but... (Sighs) Nicky, I get the feeling that this is more about targeting Forrester Creations, and Eric and Stephanie, they're my friends, and I know how special Brooke is to you. Honey, can we really do this?
Owen: Come on, Nick. Jackie does have a point.
Nick: Mother, I know you don't want to burn any bridges with Eric and Stephanie.
Nick: And you know that I would never do anything to hurt Brooke. But let's face facts. We're struggling. Now he is going to make a very generous offer. He wants this to happen. Now I know that this company is the world to you, and even though I don't want you to live with me, I would never let that fade away. Now think about this. Jackie M., Spencer publications together-- we can dominate the L.A. fashion world. Forrester Creations doesn't stand a chance.
Steffy: You know, you saved me today, Liam, in more ways than one.
Liam: Well, don't give me all the credit. I mean, I may have dragged you out of the water, but this whole change thing, that's all you.
Steffy: No, but you were there for me when I needed you. There's a reason for that, and that reason is you. You know, you--you showed up at the perfect moment. You breathed life back into me. You were there. You comforted me. You said all the things that I needed to hear.
Liam: Well, good. That's good, because I meant it. I think you are an incredible woman. I mean, you're smart, you're witty, beautiful, obviously, and you're strong.
Steffy: Don't know. I was just always such a cynic. I never really believed in fate, but you know what? No more. No, I'm gonna believe in-- in magic and romance. And I owe that to you. You know, you're always gonna be the guy that saved my life. You transformed me. You--you changed my life, Liam.
Liam: (Sighs) Well, you know what they say-- you save somebody's life, you become responsible for it, right? So I'll keep an eye on you.
Steffy: You know, I kind of like the idea of you watching over me.
Steffy: You know, when we kissed, it felt really nice. A kiss of--of gratitude, that's all, but I owe you so much, Liam. I'm gonna make a promise to you. I'm gonna show you so many ways how--how grateful I am. Trust me. I won't let you forget.
