Liam: Hope was there?

Brooke: She said that she planned to meet you on top of the mountain, and you just said that you got the message, so you were waiting for Hope, weren't you? And then Steffy walked up, and before you knew it, you were getting married.

Steffy: Hope, can you please talk to your mom and tell her to back off? I mean, she's interfering with my marriage.

Hope: I don't want to talk about your marriage, Steffy-- not with you, not with my mom.

Steffy: Okay, Hope, wait. Just please wait. Look, I-I'm sorry, okay? I know this is hard for you. We see each other every day at work. But we're family, and I want us to get along.

Hope: (Scoffs)

Pam: The tumors are gone?

Stephanie: Well, they didn't detect any new ones.

Pam: Well, Steph, that's great. Right?

Stephanie: Uh, oh, yeah, I'm happy, but they didn't use the word "Cured," Pam.

Pam: Well, come on. Eric must be over the moon.

Stephanie: Yeah, he's happy. He has his own agenda these days, though.

Pam: Well, what does that mean?

Stephanie: He wants to turn this into some sort of-- I don't know, personal celebration.

Pam: Of course, he'd want to celebrate. We are all interested in your recovery.

Stephanie: Yeah, well, he's interested in something else, something I'm not so sure that I can--I can give him.

Nick: What are you doing? You're still in your robe.

Jackie: I may change my mind. I'm not going into work today. It's all... (Sighs) Suddenly feeling a bit much.

Nick: Well, sure. Take all the time you need.

Jackie: I'm not going to be here indefinitely, you know. I'm underfoot.

Nick: Mother, you need a little time to heal.

Jackie: Well, I'm kind of thinking of this as a... a new, exciting chapter in my life, so I made a decision. Now that Steffy is married, she's, um, she's put my old loft on the market, so I called my broker, checked into it... I'm buying it, Nicky. I'm buying it. I'm--I'm gonna move back in again.

Nick: Oh. Well, that's... well, that's a great idea, a-a-as long as going there doesn't bring up too many memories.

Jackie: Well, that's why I want it. It will be filled with memories of the happiest days of my life.

Nick: Mm.

Jackie: So... (Sniffles) I'm gonna move as soon as I possibly can, because I really don't want Owen thinking that I'm, like, depressed or anything.

Nick: Oh, Mother, you just ended your marriage, so a little melancholy is expected.

Jackie: No, this is a joyful divorce.

(Doorbell rings)

Jackie: Joyful.

Nick: At least that's the idea.

Jackie: Everybody is better-- Owen, Bridget, Logan--

Eric: And they have you to thank for it.

Pam: Do you want to talk about it, whatever "It" is?

Stephanie: I'm trying to convince myself that it isn't a big deal.

Pam: Well, then just don't let it become one.

(Front door opens)

Stephen: Hello, hello.

Pam: Hey! I didn't know you were coming by (Chuckles) Mm.

Stephen: Mm. So how's my little "Nutmeg," huh?

Hope: Wow. Steffy, cannot believe you just said that to me.

Steffy: Okay, you know what? I am trying my best.

Hope: (Scoffs)

Steffy: You could, too.

Thomas: Come on, Steffy. Lay off, okay? Look, this situation isn't easy.

Steffy: No, this-- this is not a "Situation." This is my marriage. Excuse me.

Hope: Now she's mad at you, too.

Liam: I mean, Hope-- ended the engagement. I thought she wanted nothing to do with me.

Brooke: It was a rash decision in a moment of emotional distress.

Liam: What are you talking about? (Stammers)

Brooke: Liam, she followed you to Aspen to explain, and the next day, the very next day after she broke the engagement, you're--you're marrying Steffy?

Liam: No, no, don't-- don't say it like that, okay?

Brooke: (Sighs)

Liam: Steffy was ready to commit to me. Hope was not.

Brooke: Right, because Hope saw you and Steffy kissing. That's why she broke off the engagement. She saw both of you kissing in the car the night of the bachelor party while she was there preparing for the most romantic night of your life, her life.

Liam: (Stammers) You're s--okay, okay. You're saying--

Brooke: Yes, I'm telling you she was ready.

Liam: (Sighs)

Brooke: She was ready to move in. She figured you two were as married as any two people could ever be, and she wanted to give herself to you. You could have been with Hope that night.

Pam: Well, wait, Honey. You just got here.

Stephen: Well, I know. I know. I don't want to be late for my appointment. I-I could have called you on the phone and told you that I booked the honeymoon, but I was so excited for you to see this.

Pam: Well, you're not the only one who's excited now.

Stephen: And it was another excuse to see you.

Pam: Mm.

Stephanie: (Sighs)

Jackie: Yeah, Nicky. He'd better keep his feet off my desk. That's all can say. (Chuckles)

Eric: (Laughs) Jackie, look, I don't want to impose. I just want to, uh, I want to be sure you understand how grateful I am.

Jackie: Oh, thank you. And I'm--I'm just really glad you're here, Eric. It reminds me that I'm not as alone as I feel.

Eric: (Chuckles) Well, you have lots of friends.

Jackie: Oh, yeah.

Eric: Stephanie and I will help you get through this.

Jackie: Stephanie. Oh, when I think of what she's had to contend with, I mean, how can I even complain about what I'm going through?

Eric: We had some good news with her last checkup.

Jackie: You did? Really?

Eric: Yep. The tumors appear to be gone.

Jackie: Oh, that is so, so good. Oh, you must be really relieved.

Eric: Yes.

Jackie: Yeah. Having someone as loving and supportive as you-- she is so lucky.

Eric: You want to tell her that?

Jackie: I'm sorry if I've misspoken. I mean, everything's all right between you and Stephanie, isn't it?

Thomas: So I'm not worried about Steffy. I'm her brother. I've survived her looks of death before.

Hope: Yeah. (Sighs) Me, too. I'm just really tired of it.

Thomas: It's gonna get better.

Hope: (Sighs) Well, it can't get any worse, so... (Sighs)

Thomas: (Sighs) Let Liam go. It wasn't meant to be.

Liam: So Hope followed us.

Brooke: Yes, to explain what happened, and to convince you that your love could survive this, and it can. It's never too late.

Liam: (Sighs) I didn't even realize the gondola was stopped.

Brooke: Right, because Steffy was juggling knives, or doing cartwheels, or whatever she had to do to keep you looking away. I'm sure she was terrified that you would see Hope.

Liam: No, Steffy didn't know that Hope was there, either.

Brooke: She orchestrated it.

Liam: Oh, come on, Brooke.

Brooke: She knew...

Liam: Come on. (Scoffs)

Brooke: That Hope was going to be at the top of the mountain to meet you, and she had that gondola stopped.

Liam: H-how, Brooke? There's no way?

Brooke: I-I don't know. I don't know how she did it, but I'm absolutely convinced that she did. Don't you see it, Liam? (Sighs) This has changed Hope. She's not the same person. I don't even recognize her. That is what your wife has done. So you tell me, did you go to the top of the mountain the day after your engagement fell apart to marry Steffy or to see Hope? I think we both know the answer to that. You married the wrong woman.

Stephanie: It's nice to see the way you and Stephen are. You've got such a nice physical connection. I can't give that to Eric anymore.

Pam: Wh-what do you mean? You mean, you two aren't--

Stephanie: No. That's what I've been trying to tell you.

Pam: Oh. Well, but, Steph, Honey, you have been battling cancer.

Stephanie: (Sighs)

Pam: I-I-I can't believe that Eric really has expectations in the bedroom right now.

Stephanie: Honey, he's a man. Come on.

Pam: Well...

Stephanie: He's made it very clear that he wants to be intimate again and I... (Sighs) I can't explain it. I just... I have absolutely no interest. I'd like to be there for him. I wish I could just snap my fingers and be in the mood, but I... I just have no interest, absolutely none.

Pam: (Sighs)

Stephanie: What am I gonna do?

Pam: (Sighs)

Jackie: Eric, you and Stephanie-- you're both okay, aren't you?

Eric: We butt heads once in a while, but I think that's part of what makes us work.

Jackie: I guess some couples really are "Till death do us part."

Eric: I suppose so.

Hope: (Sniffles) I'm sorry. I shouldn't be crying on your shoulder.

Thomas: No, that's okay. I don't mind. Really.

Hope: (Sighs)

Thomas: Look, you're going through a hard time. I'm here if you ever need to talk.

Hope: (Sighs)

(Door closes)

Steffy: Hi.

Brooke: I just came from seeing Liam. He needed to know the truth.

Steffy: Okay, the truth?

Hope: About why his marriage to you is such a big mistake.

[Liam remembering]

Liam: I love you, hope Logan, and I'll always love you.

Liam: Hope? I spoke to your mom. Is it true?

Stephanie: Did you see Jackie?

Eric: Yes, yes, I did.

Stephanie: How is she?

Eric: Surprisingly well, actually.

Stephanie: She's a remarkable woman.

Eric: Yeah, she is. So are you. I have so much respect for you, Stephanie. Everything you've been through this past year emotionally and physically and--and--and--and... I'm sorry. I-I don't want to ask more of you than-- than you're able to give. I-I--

Stephanie: Eric, I wish we were at the same point in our lives with our needs and our desires, if for no other reason than for you.

Eric: No, it-- it's not just about desire. It's... it's about warmth, and-- and it's about connection, and--and it's the touch, wanting the touch of... of the woman I love. You know that's what I was saying, that I'm so much more than that. You know I--that's what I was saying the other night.

Stephanie: I understand. Is that enough for now that I understand and that I'll try?

Eric: You'll try?

Stephanie: Eric, obviously, I'm having some real issues with intimacy at this point in my life. It isn't that I don't want to be intimate with you, I-I mean, and be passionate and--and close again. It's just that I... (Sighs) These are the golden years of our lives. Here we are together. I don't want it to be filled with tension and disappointment for you. I want to be the partner that you need. I do. It's... Be patient with me.

Eric: I love you. I want to be the partner that you want. Of course, I'll be patient. And that you understand... that's enough for now.

Steffy: I am sorry you don't want me to be married to Liam. But I am.

Brooke: He's your husband by default, only Hope didn't default. She was there that night ready to move in with Liam to surprise him, right after the bachelor party, and then she saw you and Liam kissing in the car. Oh, you didn't know that? That's why she left the ring. That's why she broke off her engagement. But she realizes that she overreacted. Her feelings for Liam haven't changed, and he knows that now. He knows everything.

Hope: What did my mom tell you?

Liam: Everything.

Hope: I was ready. I was ready to move in with you and to be with you. But, when I saw you kissing Steffy... (Sniffles) I don't know, Liam. I don't know. Everything just got so messed up in my head. All that time that I was waiting for you to get home, and I was preparing our night... You were with her.

Liam: It wasn't like that, but... yeah.

Hope: I felt sick and betrayed and hurt and angry. And, Liam, I know that I shouldn't have given you back your ring but in that moment, that was all I could do. And I overreacted. I-I know that I overreacted. But I didn't realize that until the next day when I went to your place. I went over there just to talk to you, and... and you were already engaged to her. And you were flying off to Aspen. And I did everything I could to get to you. I flew to Aspen for you, and I tracked you down, and I was-- I was on my way up the mountain, and--and the damn gondola stopped. It just stopped.

Liam: You had to watch...

Hope: One day... I am ready to begin my life with you. And the next, you're marrying Steffy. I think that it is the hardest thing that I have ever gone through. (Sighs)

Liam: I thought I got the message wrong, you know? I thought that I went up there for nothing. And then Steffy showed up, and I was so confused and...

Hope: Wait. You weren't there to get married? You were there to meet me?
