Hope: You're lying. Liam didn't give you that ring. You walked in here, and you saw it up on the mantel, didn't you?
Steffy: How did it end up on the mantel? You let him go. He proposed. Hope, I accepted.
Hope: I don't believe you.
Steffy: You know what? It would be really foolish of me to tell a lie like that. Why don't you ask him yourself?
Hope: I will.
Brooke: You actually heard this from Liam and Steffy?
Taylor: I saw it in the flesh.
Brooke: So when they told you, "We're engaged," what did you say?
Taylor: I asked the same questions any mother would, and they seemed very thoughtful. They seemed very clear about what they were doing
Brooke: Does Liam know that Hope was there last night?
Taylor: (Scoffs) Well, I assumed so. How else would he have gotten the ring?
Brooke: Hope knows she made a terrible mistake. You see, she went there to surprise Liam--
Taylor: Well, whatever it was she went over there to do, obviously it was too late. Steffy was still there this morning.
Bill: Did he punch you? Did he break your camera?
Man: He just asked us to stop taking pictures.
Bill: Did you tell him that when he has a film to promote, he loves having us around?
Man: I put my foot out, and he stepped on it.
Bill: We're not gonna sue a celebrity for stepping on your foot.
Man: Mr. Barber said we could.
Bill: Where have you been? I've been trying to reach you.
Liam: I don't have my phone on me. I might have left it at home
Bill: Why are you still standing here? Can you see my son needs to talk to me? Get outta here. Go take a picture I can make some money with. Why do I have to micromanage everything?
Liam: Why did you have Steffy drive me home last night?
Bill: Are you hung-over?
Liam: Why is everybody asking me that?
Bill: "Thank you, Dad, for the really nice bachelor party, boring though it was, because that's how I wanted it, and for not letting me drink and drive."
Liam: How much did the party cost?
Bill: What difference does it make? You're my son.
Liam: Because I need to pay you back. It was a waste of money.
Bill: Are you saying the engagement's off?
Liam: No. I'm still engaged, just not to Hope.
Brooke: This is terrible. This is terrible! How could this happen?
Taylor: Well, it was shocking to me, too...
Taylor: Believe me.
Brooke: Okay, what are we gonna do?
Taylor: You and I are going to do nothing, except we are simply going to love and support her daughters in wherever they are in their lives, and, of course, remind them how important it is to accept responsibility for the choices they've made.
Brooke: Can you just come down your shrink pedestal and stop the drivel?
Taylor: Do you think panic is more productive?
Brooke: This problem has become even more difficult. At first, it was just a few harsh words and a miscommunication between Hope and Liam. And now if Liam's sleeping with Steffy...
Taylor: Hope broke up with Liam. That wasn't a misunderstanding. He understood her perfectly.
Taylor: I can't believe you honestly just said that you think that Steffy is--is a complication just to be overcome. No, Brooke. She is his fiancée.
Bill: I have a policy against jumping to conclusions, so, uh, walk me down this yellow brick road.
Liam: I'm not even sure I understand it all myself.
Bill: You broke it off with Hope. I don't blame you.
Liam: No. No. I got home, and I found her engagement ring on my fireplace mantel.
Bill: Why? What did she have to complain about?
Liam: She never said.
Bill: She was there?
Liam: No. (Scoffs) She called me and told me she never intended to see me again.
Bill: She ends your engagement over the phone the night of your bachelor party without even giving you a reason?
Liam: And then she just hung up.
(Cell phone rings)
Hope: He's not answering.
Steffy: Well, I'm sure he doesn't want to talk to you after your last conversation.
Hope: We both did some things last night that I'm sure we regret.
Steffy: You turned a page, Hope.
Hope: I was hurt, and I overreacted.
Steffy: What you did, without even having the guts to face him, was to announce you were making a huge decision, and he believed it. I mean, why wouldn't he? You wouldn't stab someone in the heart unless you meant it. You wouldn't be that cruel. I mean, even I believed it when he told me.
Hope: You were here?
Steffy: He needed me.
Hope: And you spent the night, didn't you?
Steffy: I didn't want him to be alone.
Steffy: This wasn't a decision. We didn't discuss this it just felt right.
Hope: It should have been me.
Bill: Incredible. But better it happened now than a week after you said "I do."
Liam: All I asked was that we not tie in our wedding to her clothing line. I would have married her next week if she wanted.
Bill: You cannot commit yourself to a woman who says, "It’s my way, or it's over.” No, explain to me how you're still engaged.
Liam: Dad, why did you have Steffy drive me home last night?
Bill: Because you had been drinking, and so was every other guy at the party.
Liam: But, Dad, why Steffy?
Bill: Given the way you were feeling, I thought you would enjoy having somebody that you could talk to, express yourself with, instead of some limo driver.
Liam: She really was there for me last night. She listened. She didn't judge. She was amazing.
Bill: So I guess Dad hit the bull's-eye, which is why you proposed...
Bill: To Steffy.
Liam: Well, it felt right to ask her. You know, I was-- I was so exhausted from all the waiting and the hoping, and I thought, I don't want to do this anymore. I don't have it in me to do this again. All I want are the ordinary things that are within everyone's reach-- you know, a-a real home, someone who loves me, someone I can touch without them being scared. And there was Steffy standing right in front of me, offering me all of these things. And so I asked. And she said yes.
Bill: Well, it's unexpected, spontaneous. The dynamics are a little weird, but you know what? When it's right, it's right. You have my blessing, huh?
Liam: Okay, okay. Okay. (Sighs)
Bill: What--what--what-- what's that face for? What's the problem?
Liam: I don't know if it was the right decision.
Brooke: I'm sorry for getting so upset. We really mustn't personalize this. It's not about us.
Taylor: Thank you.
Brooke: One of the hardest things for a mother is to know that we can't heal the heartache of things that our children don't see coming.
Taylor: No, that is-- that is very true. I-I feel very badly for Hope. I do. I don't know exactly what happened, but I could see how much she loved him, and I know that she's gotta be heartbroken.
Brooke: And I feel for Steffy, too. She's very proud, very headstrong. She's very passionate about the future even though the future she sees changes every month.
Taylor: Well, I think of her as resilient. No matter how bad things get, or how bad life gets, she picks herself back up, dusts herself off, and she gets back in the game.
Brooke: And she will this time, too. And you need to break it to her gently and explain that she can't take this overnight engagement seriously.
Steffy: I never set out to hurt you, Hope.
Hope: It doesn't bother you to be wearing somebody else's ring? To live in a house and make love in a bed that was all meant for somebody else?
Steffy: Those are all things, Hope, he wants me, and that's all that's important.
Hope: Today, maybe, but it's not gonna last. You know why, Steffy? Because you have to be wanted by somebody new on a regular basis. Marcus, Rick, your fiancé's father, Liam.
Steffy: Oh, excuse me for being normal, for putting myself out here and having relationships that weren't forever. Those of us who don't believe a first kiss has to lead to marriage, we call that "Dating," Hope. But I-I guess that kind of behavior is beneath you, if setting a good example for strangers is your goal in life.
Liam: You know, Hope said she was angry. She never said why.
Bill: Look, Son, when you make a big life decision, you can't look back. You have to keep looking forward, moving the ball down the field.
Liam: You know, I wish I had my phone on me. She could be trying to call me right now.
Bill: Would that change anything?
Liam: I-I don't know. People get emotional. They say things they don't mean.
Bill: And they have to live with what they said. Did you say something you didn't mean? Did you get emotional when you asked Steffy to marry you?
Liam: No. No.
Bill: Are you in love with her?
Liam: (Chuckles) She' incredible woman. I had an incredible night with her, but who does this? I mean, who takes an engagement ring back from one girl and puts it on another within 20 minutes?
Bill: William Spencer III -- that's who. Are you worried about what people are gonna think?
Liam: No, I'm worried that I'm turning my back on the life I was supposed to lead.
Taylor: So you don't think Steffy's engagement is serious?
Brooke: This time yesterday, her fiancé was engaged to somebody else.
Taylor: Yeah, yes, I admit, it--it was a little disconcerting when I first found out, but isn't that the way it is with everyone when they get engaged? One day they weren't, and the next day they are?
Brooke: Usually, there's a gentle progression, not, like, a bomb being dropped out of the blue.
Taylor: Brooke, are you trying to believe that this relationship is not serious with the two of them?
Brooke: Hope and Liam have a connection, and it's not going to disappear. I would hate to see Steffy get hurt.
Taylor: You know what I think has happened, Brooke, is that this is all just part of life. They're just maturing. You know, Liam wanted a little more adult relationship with Steffy, and Steffy has finally shifted to learn how to make an emotional attachment to someone more appropriate. That's what they've done for each other. They've helped each other grow up. And now Hope is going to have to do a little growing her own.
Hope: You think standards are ridiculous, don't you, Steffy? You think nothing is more foolish than acting out of a sense of what's right and wrong.
Steffy: Wait, are you talking about your big virginity campaign?
Steffy: That's not what you were doing. What you were saying was, "Hey, I'm a virgin. I have this hot boyfriend, and I have my own clothing line."
Steffy: No, meanwhile, it completely escaped your notice that your fiancé-- he was miserable. He wasn't sleeping. He wasn't working. He was just sitting at home waiting for a woman who wasn't gonna show up.
Hope: Maybe I deserve that, Steffy, and maybe I already knew that, and that's why I'm here. Where is Liam now, Steffy? Just tell me. Is he at the office? Where is he?
Steffy: Okay, you know how you said respect your engagement I'd like you to do the same.
Hope: (Scoffs) Oh, my God. Are you serious right now? Do you really feel like you've respected my engagement to Liam?
Steffy: Until you stopped respecting Liam.
Steffy: No, you-- you figured you'd tagged him, so you could ignore him and focus on your other vanity projects. You told me before that you wanted to be friends. So why don't we start now? Why don't we put everything behind us? And we could we just have fun, and we could hang, and we could just be happy.
Hope: (Scoffs) That sounds great, Steffy. Yeah, why don't we just sit around and braid each other's hair? I could respect your engagement to Liam if I knew that it wasn't a mistake. But that's what this is. And I'll admit it, yeah, it's partly my fault. And I'll have to see if Liam can ever truly forgive me, but I am not just going to hand him over to you.
Bill: You're not yourself, Kid.
Liam: That's probably true.
Bill: You've got emotional whiplash. Who wouldn't?
Liam: Yeah, but isn't that more reason to throw on the brakes, figure out what the hell I'm doing?
Bill: No, listen, you--you are trading in a girl who had no time for you except to crow to the press about how you weren't gettin' any for a girl who wants to do nothing but spend time with you.
Liam: I'm not saying that I have regrets. What I'm saying is I don't feel resolved with Hope.
Bill: Hope made her bed, and now she's gotta sleep in it. And you've got a bed to sleep in, too but you're not gonna be sleepin' there alone anymore.
Bill: Are you?
Liam: Okay, maybe you're right. Maybe, but don't I owe Hope an explanation for my engagement to Steffy?
Bill: No, no, no, no, no, no, no. You owe Hope nothing, zero. She chewed you up and spit you out. What you need to do is get your head screwed on right. In fact, what you need to do is get out of town with Steffy.
Liam: All right, maybe after I talk to Hope.
Bill: No, no, not "Maybe after I talk to Hope."
Liam: (Scoffs) Come on.
Bill: Now. Today.
Steffy: You really are such a Logan.
Hope: This again? Really, Steffy? What of it?
Steffy: There is nothing you can do that you think can't be undone. It's like, you say you're sorry, and everyone's supposed to be over.
Hope: I know that Liam and I will have a lot of work to do.
Steffy: Oh, you are just like Katie, justifying running out on Bill, like your mother justifying having "Accidental" sex with Oliver.
Steffy: Life doesn't come equipped with an eraser. Every mistake you make is made forever. Every hurt that you inflict is there forever. It's right underneath the surface. Now you're gonna try to make it work with Liam? I don't think so. No, he doesn't trust you. How could he be with a woman who's just gonna leave him every time she's unhappy?
Hope: I never said it was going to be easy.
Steffy: Okay, if you want to model upstanding morals for our generation then take responsibility for your actions. You broke it off. You tore his heart out. Live with it.
(Cell phone rings)
Hope: That could be him.
Steffy: What are you gonna say if it is?
Brooke: Are you with Liam?
Hope: No, I'm with Steffy, Mom.
Brooke: Taylor told me they're engaged. Is that true?
Hope: So she says she's got my ring on her finger, and she spent the night.
Brooke: None of that matters. You have to find Liam.
Hope: Of course, it matters. Everything has changed.
Brooke: Honey, listen to me. Focus on what you know.
Hope: I don't know anything. What do I know?
Brooke: Just think-- the one thing you know for sure, the thing you've always known ever since you met Liam.
Hope: All right.
Brooke: All right.
Hope: I'm sorry. I hope that didn't take up too much of your time.
Steffy: No, that's fine. There were just things we needed to say to each other. That's all.
Hope: Oh, yeah. And you're right. I didn't help the situation. In fact, I partly brought it on myself. And I'll just have to see if Liam will let me correct it. But I have to stay true to the one thing that I do know. Liam is in love with me. And I love him. And I will see him, and I will do whatever it takes. Don't delude yourself, Steffy. This is far from over. I will get Liam back. And we will have the future that we planned together.
