Hope: First the father, now the son. Is that it?
Steffy: Well, I was wrong about Bill, but I'm not wrong about Liam.
Hope: You barely even know him.
Steffy: I know that he saved my life.
Hope: (Sarcastically) And now he's your hero?
Steffy: No, he's more than that.
Hope: (Normal voice) In your fantasies, maybe, but he is my boyfriend.
Steffy: I get that he fell for a sweet, innocent girl, but at some point, he's going to need a woman.
Hope: Yeah, believe it or not, Steffy, our relationship is about a lot more than just sex.
Steffy: It's not about sex at all. You're a virgin.
Hope: Yeah, and proud of it! Why are you making it such a big issue?
Steffy: I am no making it an issue. You are, by continuing to string your boyfriend along.
Steffy: Look, the longer you wait, the easier it'll be for me. You're gonna lose him if you keep holding out.
Hope: Why? Because you won't be?
(Cell phone rings)
Marcus: Now that's what I'm talkin' about.
Dayzee: Whatever. You playboys are all the same.
Marcus: Ah, former playboy.
Marcus: I'm an upstanding papa now. Watch out.
Dayzee: (Giggles) Nice. How is the love of your life, by the way?
Marcus: Now don't you mean the other love of my life?
Steffy: Dad, I'm fine. You don't have to worry, okay?
Ridge: We almost lost you. Don't tell me not to worry.
Ridge: How's your head?
Steffy: Thick as ever. No, it's fine. I just have a bump. It's all good.
Ridge: Did you get it checked out?
Steffy: Yes, mom insisted, and so did Liam.
Ridge: Good, because you're very precious to us.
Steffy: Even after I made a fool out of myself falling for Bill, which was so embarrassing?
Ridge: Sweetheart, you have nothing to be embarrassed about. Spencer, on the other hand, the less said about that guy, the better.
Steffy: But not his son. You know, if it wasn't for Liam, I wouldn't be alive. I don't know how I'm ever gonna repay him... or maybe I do.
Brooke: Oh! Hi, sweetie. How's everything downstairs?
Brooke: Preparation for the preview? You just came from the showroom, right?
Hope: Oh, yeah, uh, yeah, Oliver's down there from taking pictures of everything.
Brooke: How did it go? Hope?
Hope: What? Sorry. I'm sorry. What?
Brooke: Is everything l right? I mean, I hope you're not nervous about the preview, because your designs are lovely, and your showstopper is fabulous.
Hope: I know. I know. I can't wait for everyone to see it.
Brooke: And I can't wait for everybody to see my sweet, beautiful daughter in it.
Hope: Oh, you forgot "virginal."
Hope: Your sweet, beautiful, virginal daughter, which, according to Steffy, " is going to cost me my boyfriend.”
Steffy: Liam was so heroic. You know, he tries to downplay it, but he really is one of the good guys. But I wish I'd realized that before I made a fool out of myself with his father. (Scoffs)
Ridge: Steffy, I don't want you thinking like that. You were not a fool. Spencer took advantage. And--now don't get--get-- I don't want to get goin' with that guy right now.
Steffy: I know. I know, Dad. I just…
Steffy: Bill and I, we were doomed from the beginning. I was just a distraction-- you know, a pretty face who fed his ego. Katie didn't let him get away with anything, and I-I let him get away with everything. I mean, that's-- that is not the kind of person that I am. Oh, God. But I think part of it... (sighs) I-I think I was trying to replace you, Dad. I just--I felt like I kept losing you.
Steffy: No, but that's-- that's how I felt. You know, you-- you didn't remarry mom. You went back to Brooke, and I just felt like I had all this disappointment and pain inside. I felt like nobody cared... except Bill. But you know what? (Scoffs) I was just trying to make myself believe that he cared, because he didn’t care. I just needed to feel that. Well I guess almost losing my life really puts things into perspective. You know, it changes someone.
Ridge: How do you think?
Steffy: Well, I don't know. I was always a skeptic of you and Brooke and your fate and destiny, but, you know, after Liam saved me, you know, I'm starting to think maybe it's luck, you know, maybe it's a coincidence, or maybe it's a miracle. I-I was just never open to the possibility.
Ridge: Now you are?
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, I think I am. Liam changed my life. I-I'm--I'm whole new person, and I'm not going to turn back. You know, I just--I want what everybody else wants. I just--I want somebody who I can feel special around and I can share myself with you know, I-I...el (sighs) I thought I had that with Bill. But then I realized I, um, I had tunnel vision. (Chuckles) And you know, there's a lot of other guys out there for me, one in particular who saved my life. Liam and me--there's something there.
Dayzee: Oh, nice. (Laughs)
Dayzee: (Sighs) I need to start working out more.
Marcus: What are you talking about? You got a great body.
Marcus: Better than these 6'4" hanger models walkin' around here, I'll tell you that.
Dayzee: You know, I don't know how I feel about you being around all these hot, sexy women every day.
Marcus: I hope you're including yourself in that statement, though.
Dayzee: Rosey's lucky to have a guy like you as a dad. Her mom seems to think you're pretty special, too.
Marcus: (Scoffs) Did Amber tell you that?
Dayzee: Mm-hmm, we had a run-in the day that you were taking your stuff over to Oliver's.
Dayzee: She thought I was trying to put the moves on you, and she wasn't happy about it. But I'm guessing she's gonna be even more irritated knowing that she didn't scare me off.
Brooke: Steffy told you if you don't make love to Liam, you're going to lose him?
Hope: Yeah. Apparently after Liam saved her life, she has been appreciating him in whole new way.
Brooke: Meaning she is going after him for herself.
Hope: Mm-hmm. Just a few days ago...
Hope: She was madly in love with Bill, and now she is all over my boyfriend or--
Brooke: You know, I told Taylor that she has to keep her daughter away from Liam.
Hope: Oh, you did-- I wish you hadn't have done that.
Hope: I mean, I-I can handle this by myself.
Brooke: Honey, I know you can
Hope: I get it. I understand that you're being protective, and I-I appreciate that. It's just... there's a lot to think about.
Brooke: What do you mean?
Hope: My decision to wait to be with Liam-- I mean, we've talked about it, and really feel like it's the right decision for me.
Brooke: Then hold onto your convictions. Liam loves you, and he will respect that.
Steffy: You know, you shouldn't keep your door unlocked. You never know who might wander in.
Marcus: One thing's for sure. Amber is not subtle.
Dayzee: She told me she was a mother fighting to get her daughter's parents back together. Is there any chance of that happening?
Marcus: Look, I love my daughter, all right? And I'll always be there for her, but there's one thing that I won't do, and that's pretend I have feelings for someone when I know I don't. It just wouldn't be fair to Amber, Rosey, nor myself.
Dayzee: Oh, yeah. Have you told her that?
Marcus: Uh, yes, more than once.
Marcus: She knows I'm seeing you, Dayzee. It's not like I'm sneakin' around her back or anything like that.
Dayzee: All right.
Marcus: Amber is just gonna have to understand that the only woman I want in my life...
Marcus: Is you.
Brooke: Sweetheart, sharing yourself with someone, especially for the first time is a big deal.
Hope: I know. I know I mean, it's one of the biggest decisions that a woman can make in her life. But now with Steffy circling... I-I'm not being insecure. I believe in what Liam and I have together. I'm just being realistic. I know that she is going to be throwing herself at him every chance she gets. I mean, she told me.
Brooke: She said that?
Hope: Oh, Mom, she is making it a challenge. (Sighs) How long is it fair for me to ask Liam to wait?
Brooke: You and Liam have discussed this more than once. He was okay with it.
Hope: I'm just wondering... am I being completely naive? Waiting for a real commitment is still very important to me, but should I rethink my expectations?
Brooke: Honey, you just need to do what's right for you.
Hope: I just know that it can be so easy to get caught up in casual sex, and then the whole experience is just so much less meaningful. I-I-I mean, there's nothing wrong with-- with me wanting to wait, and Steffy wants to make me feel like a freak. I may be different, but I still think that my choices are totally healthy. And--and--and I know that you've made different decisions in your life.
Brooke: Choices and decisions that I know hurt you and brought you a lot of emotional pain, and I regret that.
Hope: No, don't. Don't. Okay, you lived your life, and now I'm gonna live mine the way I feel is right for me. And as for Steffy, I just can't let her get to me. Liam loves me. I know he does. He'll wait
Liam: You're right. I should be more careful.
Steffy: But you are happy that I wandered in, right?
Steffy: Domestic. Hmm. I like it.
Liam: Yeah, something tells me you prefer imported.
Steffy: I have discerning tastes.
Liam: In beer?
Steffy: Maybe. Or maybe a little champagne.
Steffy: Here. Check the year.
Steffy: For someone who saved your life, you don't toast them with the cheap stuff.
Steffy: No, I just- I feel like I-I had to do it for you.
Liam: You don't have to do anything. I'm just-- I'm just glad you're okay. I mean, you are okay, right?
Steffy: Um... well... yeah, uh, Hope and I, we kind of had a-run-in earlier.
Liam: Oh, no.
Steffy: Oh, yes. But, hey, look, you have this incredible place, an amazing view, and really, it's--it's just being wasted. You know, you really should share it with a woman, not a girl.
Liam: (Chuckles) Well, if you're referring to Hope, she doesn't live here.
Steffy: Exactly my point. You know, she's holding out for a wedding band before she lets you... you know, make love to her.
Steffy: I-I just-- I don't get it. Uh, why do you let her do this to you? Oh, right, I forgot. I forgot. She has morals, yes. But you know what I really think? I just--I really think that she has major issues. You know? She has these hang-ups. Look how she came into the world. Her mom has just been a part of so many scandals.
Liam: Okay, you know, I don't think if I'm ready to go down this road with you right now.
Steffy: Okay, look. I-just--I really just don't want you to make the same mistake most men make.
Steffy: You think you're gonna marry someone, and--and things are just gonna change, the behavior's gonna change, the flood gates are just gonna open up on your honeymoon. Well, it's not gonna be like that. You know, Hope's gonna control you with sex, so don't delude yourself. Look, Hope and I, we are nothing alike, not that you know anything about that, but... you did see me au naturel, so... (chuckles) don't tell me you don't look at me differently.
Steffy: Liam, don't you dare deny it.
Ridge: I didn't mean to interrupt you and Hope.
Brooke: She had to go back to the showroom.
Ridge: Is she all right? I couldn't help overhearing.
Brooke: (Sighs) I respect my daughter so much for deciding to wait. And I respect Liam for not pressuring her.
Ridge: But I can tell you're still worried.
Brooke: Liam saved Steffy's life, and we're all grateful for that, especially Steffy. I just hope that her gratitude doesn't turn into something else.
Steffy: Really, then, um, can you explain this? Huh?
Liam: Uh, I was working, so--
Steffy: Oh, really? No, I-I really think that you're attracted to me.
Liam: Steffy, come on. Seriously, come here.
Steffy: No, you want to see me in my birthday suit.
Liam: Seriously, give me the--really? Really? Will you stop?
Steffy: Oh, well, how about you just be honest, okay? You have feelings for me after everything we've been through. I know this is a surprise to you. You didn't know you could have these feelings. Well, you know what? You saved me, and it didn't just change my life, but it changed yours, too, and I know it.
Liam: Yeah, you're right. The experience we shared did change things for me, and I do see you differently. Is that what you want to hear?
Steffy: Well, you know, you can't go on like this.
Liam: No, I can't.
Steffy: So, Mr. Spencer, where do we go from here?
Liam: Are you doing this to get back at my dad?
Steffy: Look, I thought I was into the bad boy. I thought that's what I was drawn to, but-- you know, powerful, egotistical, older man. But, Liam, I was wrong. And I see that now because of you.
Hope: (Sighs) I want to until it's right. (Sighs) Liam, can you wait, too?Back to The TV MegaSite's B&B Site
