Bill: You wanted a formal proposal. You got it. Do we have a deal?

Jackie: You want to buy 50% of Jackie M. why, exactly?

Bill: I want to be in business with you.

Nick: No. You want to take down Forrester Creations.

Bill: Well, as I told you when we first spoke, I want to give my wife an opportunity to get back into the fashion world. Taking down Forrester would be a bonus. You need me.

Nick: I'm feeling a little wary here, like the other shoe's gonna drop.

Bill: Nick, that hurts my feelings. I have been straight with you from the beginning. I give you the financial boost you need and promote the hell out of Jackie M. Now do we have a deal or not?

Steffy: Liam, you professed your love to Hope. When you got own on one knee in front of all this fashion press with all this media coverage-- I mean, this was like a fairy tale. And she still says she's not ready.

Liam: She wants to wait, Steffy. I mean, I told you I respect that.

Steffy: I know. But it's not what you want.

Liam: I want Hope.

Steffy: Okay, well, then you're gonna have to play by her rules. You've proven to Hope how committed you are, and instead of being here and celebrating your engagement, she's in Paris. That's not right, Liam. Of course you're frustrated. I mean, how could you not be?

Thomas: Hope, can I talk to you for a second?

Hope: Yeah, yeah, I just, um, I just need to get this speech finished before the press conference.

Thomas: Yeah, I'm sorry. I just--I wanted to say I'm sorry for lying about what happened between your mom and me.

Hope: I know.

Thomas: And I never should have gone along with my grandma.

Hope: I realize... (sighs) that you were just sucked into Stephanie's lie. So I... I forgive you. But, Thomas, what you did-- I mean, that was so wrong. That was a huge lie. It almost destroyed my mom's life.

Thomas: Instead, it just messed up my mom's life.

Hope: And sent Steffy right into Bill Spencer's arms.

Brooke: Taylor? I was looking for Steffy.

Taylor: She's not here.

Brooke: Do you know where she is? (Sighs)

Taylor: I was just here to try to find her myself.

Brooke: Steffy knows that Hope went out of town I'm afraid she might be with Liam.

Bill: Justin, Marone just left. Oh, yeah, I am, uh, very confident they'll accept. Before you know it, I will own half of Jackie M., and Forrester won't know what hit 'em.

(Intercom buzzes)

Bill: I'll call you back. Yes, Hillary? Really? Well, this should be entertaining. Send him in.

Bill: "Joltin'" Ridge Forrester, to what do I owe the pleasure? You want to go another couple rounds?

Taylor: Steffy's entitled to be wherever she wants to be.

Brooke: Not when it comes to my daughter's fiancé. 

Taylor: Why are you so concerned about Liam? If he's engaged to your daughter, you ought to be able to trust her loves her.

Brooke: I do trust Liam. It's Steffy I don't trust.

Liam: You know, I never said I was frustrated with Hope.

Steffy: You don't have to. I mean, it's all over your face, your body language. Any human being in this situation would be aggravated.

Liam: (Scoffs) Okay, here's how it works. Hope wants to wait. I love her. I want to be with her. Ergo, I respect her wishes.

Steffy: Okay, the problem isn't her wanting to wait. I... I guess I could understand that.

Liam: Really?

Steffy: No, not really, okay? I mean, why does she want to wait? What is the reason behind it? Do you know? Does Hope even know?

Liam: What do you want me to say, Steffy? I mean, it's important to her to wait till her wedding night.

Steffy: Okay, I-I get that's very sweet and old-fashioned, but I'm not convinced that's what this is really about.

Liam: Oh. (Scoffs) Well, if Steffy thinks it goes deeper then...

Steffy: Yes, way deeper. You know, Hope is a lot like her mom, more than she even realizes. Brooke uses her body to control men, and Hope is doing the same to control you.

Thorne: I really like these fabrics.

Hope: Yeah, think they're gonna work really well, yeah.

Thomas: Well, it was actually Hope's idea to use natural dye in our fabric.

Thorne: Yeah, well, it's a great selling point.

Hope: Mm, well, environmental awareness is very important to me.

Eric: It should be to everyone.

Hope: Yeah, I think so. I mean, Hope for the Future, it's--it's a lifestyle. You know, it's about making positive, healthy choices. Young women should feel free to celebrate their youth, you know, not feel pressure to have to grow up too fast and--and keep up with their peers. I know there are a lot of other--other people who believe that, too. You know, they just want to slow things down a bit and savor their innocence. I-I don't know. That's what I'm trying to do, and I'm really proud of it.

Bill: So you're here to plead for family peace.

Ridge: Your son and my daughter are engaged. Somehow, we're gonna have to find a way to get along.

Bill: A Spencer-Forrester wedding-- great publicity. Drink?

Ridge: Sure. Those kids are two very special people, Bill.

Bill: Agreed.

Ridge: As their fathers, I really don't want to be at odds.

Bill: And why do you think that would happen?

Ridge: Because history has a way of repeating itself. I want to prelude that.

Bill: And this is all because of the engagement?

Ridge: I have business reasons, too. I have a project that I want our two companies to collaborate on.

Bill: Fill me in.

Ridge: A big media buy, full spectrum-- print, cable, the web, everything. Forrester's new line splashed across Spencer Publications and all your media outlets.

Bill: Hope for the Future and Intimates-- you want me to promote them both?

Ridge: This new project is gonna be huge for us, Bill. It's gonna be very successful.

Bill: What's in it for me?

Ridge: The thing you like most... money. A bigger return on your 12.5% of Forrester and an exclusive on the Intimates line when it's officially released. If you'd like to take a look... here's the link to our secure web site.

Steffy: You know, I'm not gonna let you sit here and mope.

Liam: I'm not moping.

Steffy: Yes, you are.

Liam: (Chuckles)

Steffy: Well, why don't we go outside, take a walk on the beach, get some fresh air? Or, you know, I could actually take you to a café, my treat.

Liam: No, thank you.

Steffy: What about a cold dip in the ocean? You sure could use it.

Liam: No. Ooh.

Steffy: Eh, I'm willing to take one for the team. Or we could, um... a movie. (Gasps) No, I got the perfect remedy. Bowling. Yeah.

Liam: I'm--I'm sorry. Run that by me again. Steffy Forrester bowling?

Steffy: What?

Liam: Really?

Steffy: (Laughs) Okay. I'm not in a league or anything.

Liam: No.

Steffy: I don't have my own ball, or a t-shirt with my name embroidered on the side, but, I don't know, and I'm in a bad mood, bowling puts me in a good mood. I don't know. I think maybe just knocking down those pins really takes out a lot of aggression. Yeah. What?

Liam: Nothing. I just have a hard time picturing you wearing those shoes.

Steffy: Oh, those ugly clown shoes. No, no, no, no. I don't wear those.

Liam: (Scoffs)

Steffy: I tip the guy 50 bucks so I can bowl in my heels.

Liam: Of course you do.

Steffy: Well, you know, if you want, we could just, you know, chill here.

Liam: I don't think that's a good idea.

Steffy: Okay, I will be on that side of the couch, and you can be on this side, and there'll be a lot of separation, okay?

Liam: Oh, well, thank you. Thank you.

Steffy: (Laughs)

Liam: Look, uh, Steffy, I really-- I appreciate you being here trying to make me laugh and trying to get my mind off of what's going on with Hope. You care, and you're worried about me. And I'm fine. I promise I'm gonna be okay. But, um, I think you should go. And besides, I-I gotta-- you know, I gotta stop by the office, too, for a little while, so...

Steffy: Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, okay.

Liam: Yeah.

Steffy: You know, don't feel guilty about the way you're feeling. Hope is withholding something that's sacred and-- and beautiful from the man who loves her so much. It's not fair to you.  Look, um, call me if you change your mind... about bowling. (Laughs)

Liam: (Laughs) Right.

Steffy: Um, yeah.

Liam: Yeah.

Steffy: Well, I-I'll even wear the shoes for you to make you laugh. Wait, did I really just say that?

Liam: I think you did.

Steffy: I think I did.

Liam: Yeah, you totally did.

Steffy: That's--yeah, weird. (Laughs) Okay, well, um, see you later.

Eric: I'm very glad that you want to send out a positive message.

Thomas: Yeah, me, too.

Hope: Well, I just feel like young women should feel empowered in their own skin. You know, they--they shouldn't feel pressure to have to be sexy. I don't think that's what being a woman is all about.

Thomas: Not that that's a bad thing.

Hope: No, it's--it's not. But I think our generation should know that they have a choice. I mean, wanting to wait-- it doesn't make you a prude.

Thorne: Does your new fiancé  feel the same way?

Hope: Getting engaged hasn't changed anything for me. I'm not embarrassed to say it. Uh, we're waiting until we're married. Surprised? (Laughs)

Eric: I think that's wonderful. I think that if it's that important to you, that you're gonna stand by your convictions. That's good.

Hope: Liam knows how important it is to me, and he loves me enough to wait.

Liam: Hey.

Bill: Hey.

Liam: What are you lookin' at?

Bill: Sneak a peek.

(Music playing)

Stop bein' a good girl

Liam: Whoa. Where'd you get that?

Bill: Forrester wants to do a huge media buy. They want to focus on the Intimates campaign.

Liam: What'd you tell 'em?

Bill: I told 'em to talk to you. That's pretty much your area now. Here's the link. Ridge is clearly concerned that Steffy and I might get involved again.

Liam: Why? She's not into you anymore.

Bill: You still think she's interested in you?

Liam: (Scoffs) Dad, at this point, I know she is.

(Music playing)

Brooke: Stop encouraging Steffy's feelings for Liam.

Taylor: That's not what I'm doing. My daughter is an adult. She has her own mind. I'm not going to demand that she stop having feelings for somebody.

Brooke: She's going after another man who's unavailable, another man who's committed to a Logan. Do you think that's a coincidence? No, it is a habit. Come on, Taylor. You're her mother. Get her to put an end to this. Otherwise, she will get hurt.

Steffy: Hi, Mom.

Taylor: Hi, sweetheart.

Steffy: What are you two guys doing?

Taylor: I was looking for you.

Steffy: Oh.

Taylor: So was Brooke.

Brooke: Where were you just now?

Steffy: Uh, okay. Not like it's any of your business, but, um, I was at Liam's.

Bill: We talked about this, Liam, and you're not listening to your dad. Any interest Steffy is showing in you is because she wants revenge against me.

Liam: (Chuckles) You're full of yourself.

Bill: That's irrelevant. I know how Steffy operates. This is her M.O. She fell for me. I broke it off. Now she's pissed and goin' after you. You better keep your guard up, "slick."

Liam: Hey. Did you make it to Paris okay?

Hope: Yeah, we did. We just checked into the hotel, and everything is so gorgeous, Liam.

Liam: Nice. I miss you.

Hope: I miss you, too. Hey, Liam, a-about how we left things, we're gonna make this work, okay? I love you so much, and--and I can't wait to announce our engagement to the world.

Liam: Hey, Hope, uh, wait-- wait--wait a second. Um, I have... (stammers) I've been, uh, thinking a lot about this, and--and, you know, I proposed to you, and we only really had one night together, and then you left, and I'm--I'm... (sighs) I'm kind of feeling like... I just... want to be with my fiancée, you know? Like--

Hope: Listen, Liam. This is really, really hard for me, too, okay? But--but it's-- it's gonna be worth the wait for both of us it will be I mean, our honeymoon night will be incredible. I-I have to go right now, but I will call you later. I love you.

Liam: (Sighs)

Brooke: Do you really think it's appropriate to be spending time alone with a man who's engaged to another woman?

Steffy: Okay, okay, look, there's something not right with their relationship. You know, even ask my mom. She is a psychiatrist. She agrees.

Taylor: Well, I have heard Hope's speeches on morality. And I know she wants to wait, and I think that that's a very remarkable trait, if that's what she's really doing, if it's coming from healthy place. But I do know that Liam doesn't exactly feel the same way.

Brooke: You need to respect their engagement and respect my daughter. She's a lovely young woman who is making her own decisions with Liam, and you can't condemn that.

Taylor: Well, I've gotta say, I-I think that maybe there are some issues going on with that maybe she's not even admitting to or realizes they’re there.

Steffy: Look, Brooke, Hope has this amazing guy who just wants her so bad, but she keeps messing with his head. You know, she's making him feel guilty about something that is completely natural. It's wrong.

Brooke: Don't try to rationalize this, Steffy.

Taylor: I have to agree. What I--what I think Steffy's trying to say is that there's something else going on with Hope. It seems like she's maybe reacting to something and maybe she wants to wait out of something based on fear, and I-I really can't say that I blame her after everything that she's gone through growing up, watching her mother go through the laundry list of men-- I-I have to say that maybe she's afraid of physical intimacy.

Brooke: Oh, my God. Just stay out of it, Taylor. You, too, Steffy. Liam and Hope will work out their relationship.

Steffy: Maybe. Maybe not.

Brooke: I'll be watching you. So will my sisters. Don't mess with Liam. It would be the biggest mistake you could make.
