(Indistinct conversations)

Hope: Ridge, what you're asking of me is so unfair.

Liam: Yeah, I gotta go with Hope on this one.

Ridge: Look, stop it, both of you. Liam, you have a wife inside. You have no business being out here with Hope. This is very inappropriate.

Hope: Um, Steffy has no business being married to him. I should be married to Liam.

Ridge: But you're not. It didn't turn out that way, and now commitments have been made. You can't pretend otherwise-- neither of you can. Hope, you're part of this family. You're sharing the holiday with us just like Steffy and Liam are. But they're married, sweetheart. That's how it is. And I really want you to acknowledge it at dinner.

Stephanie: It doesn't seem possible. (Sighs) It's the holiday season already.

Eric: And it's gonna be the best one ever, you'll see.

Stephanie: You're such an optimist.

Eric: Oh, you're worried, aren't you? You're worried about Steffy and Hope.

Stephanie: Aren't you?

Rick: You know, everything seems so mellow right now, but I can't help but feel that we're sitting on a ticking time bomb.

Brooke: You mean Steffy and your sister?

Rick: Yeah, Ridge is speaking with Liam and Hope right now.

Brooke: W-what? What are they talking about?

Rick: What do you mean, "What are they talking about?" Your husband I-I-is fully supportive of Steffy, even after all the crap she's pulled.

Brooke: No, I know. I know. And it's drives me crazy. (Sighs)

Rick: (Sighs)

Thomas: What are you doing? You keep staring at the door.

Steffy: You know they're out there-- my husband, your girlfriend, and dad.

Thomas: Okay, so what's going on?

Steffy: I don't... (Sighs) I thought Hope was leaving, and then dad followed her and so did Liam. I don't know. Maybe... maybe she's saying good-bye.

Hope: You want me to toast this marriage? It's a farce.

Ridge: Not to Steffy. And it better not be to Liam, either.

Taylor: You looking for Ridge?

Brooke: Oh. (Sighs) He's outside with Hope and Liam. I just wish he would stay out of it. (Sighs)

Taylor: No, let him do what he's doing. He's just trying to help.

Brooke: I know.

Taylor: It is a shame, though.

Brooke: What?

Taylor: This rivalry that--that's gone on between you and me and now it's been passed down to our daughters.

Brooke: Taylor, I don't want that, either.

Taylor: Well, we can do something about it. We can support both of our daughters. Who knows? Maybe we can even learn to support each other. It would be a good message to send our girls.

Liam: Look, this-- this is really not necessary. I mean, Hope toasting Steffy and me? That's--that's like--

Ridge: It will send a message to everyone.

Hope: Mm-hmm.

Liam: It's asking a lot.

Hope: It's asking way too much.

Ridge: Liam, it's your first holiday with your new wife. Make it special for her. And you, young lady, you can help by acknowledging their marriage and wishing Liam and Steffy well. I'm really counting on you for this.

Hope: (Sighs)

Ridge: Hope, are you listening to me?

Hope: I heard you.

Ridge: Are you gonna do what I asked?

Hope: I don't know if I can.

Ridge: How can I make you understand how important this is?

Hope: I get that it's important for your daughter, Steffy.

Ridge: It's important for you, too, to help get your life off dead-center. I'm going in. Don't be long.

Steffy: Hey, Dad, did Hope leave?

Ridge: Sweetheart, she's talking to Liam.

Steffy: What? No, no, no, I'm going to --

Ridge: Steffy, Steffy, Steffy, you need to give them this moment.

Steffy: No, are you crazy, Dad. No.

Ridge: Sweetheart, you know that he loves you, right? Let them talk. It's ok.

Hope: (Scoffs) This is absurd.

Liam: Yeah.

Hope: Me making a toast to the man I love and his wife. Is this really how my life has turned out?

Liam: We don't know how your life has turned out. It's not over yet.

Hope: It feels like it.

Liam: Don't say that. You have so much to live for, it's not even funny.

Hope: Liam, I get that Steffy is charming and pretty and clever and she's a free spirit, but do you really want to be in a relationship with someone who can blatantly lie to you, and who has been intimate with your father. That's who she is, Liam. I don't want that for you.

Liam: Look, it's Thanksgiving. I can't -- I can't talk about this. Not now.

(Hope kisses Liam passionately)

Liam: (Coughs and clears his throat)

Hope: Sorry, but it's Thanksgiving, so I don't really care.

Liam: You're adorable. Stop thinking your life is over. (Chuckles)

Hope: Go back inside.

Liam: Are you okay?

Hope: Yeah, someone told me that I have a lot to live for, so I guess I'll take his word for it.

(Door opens and closes)

(Background music playing)

Steffy: (Kisses Liam) Do you need a drink?

Liam: No, I'm fine.

Steffy: You were out there for a while. My dad said I should let you talk with Hope. Is everything okay?

Liam: Yeah. Yea, it's--it-- yeah, I need a drink. I need a glass of wine, like, stat.

Steffy: All right, comin' up.

Liam: Okay.

Steffy: Welcome to the family.

Liam: Thanks. (Sighs)

Thomas: Hey.

Ridge: Hey. Quite a day.

Thomas: Mm-hmm. Me and Grams-- Thanksgiving's our favorite.

Ridge: I don't know about you, but I am starving. The smell of that turkey--

Thomas: Dad, how did it go out there?

Ridge: I suggested to Hope that she acknowledge Steffy's marriage.

Thomas: Ouch.

Ridge: It's time, son. We need to put an end to this.

Thomas: All right. Do you think you got through to her?

Ridge: I don't know. But it sure wouldn't hurt if you helped the situation.

Thomas: (Laughs) Dad, relax, I'm all over it.

Taylor: (Laughs)

(Indistinct conversations)

Thomas: (Sighs) So where's Steffy?

Liam: Getting some wine.

Thomas: Good. We can talk.

Liam: Oh, come on. I just got an earful from your dad. Really?

Thomas: Yeah. Yeah, it doesn't surprise me. You're married to his daughter.

Liam: Yeah, and your sister. So what is it?

Thomas: You and Steffy... (Sighs) You're both very ambitious. You want to run Spencer Publications someday, and she wants to run... well, the rest of the world.

Liam: (Scoffs) Yeah, that--that is true. And you and Hope?

Thomas: Me, I live to design. I'm an artist. So is Hope. Plus she... has a social conscience.

Liam: I heard you took her to, uh, Dayzee's for Veterans Day. She must--

Thomas: Yeah. Yeah, I did.

Liam: She must have enjoyed that.

Thomas: She did... a lot. So did I.

Liam: You're really into her, huh?

Thomas: Does that bother you?

Liam: Uh... (Sighs)

Thomas: It shouldn't, since you're married to my sister.

Steffy: Ah. My two favorite men.

Liam: (Clears throat)

Steffy: Here.

Liam: (Sniffles) Thank you.

Steffy: To the best holiday season of our lives...

Thomas: (Sighs)

(Glasses clink)

Steffy: For all of us.

(Glasses clink)

Brooke: (Sighs)

Ridge: There's nothing like Thanksgiving.

Brooke: Yeah. One holiday devoted to gratitude. Mm.

Ridge: I think we ought to have one of these every month.

Brooke: (Giggles) I certainly should... (Sighs) especially this year.

(Ridge kisses Brooke)

Brooke: Mm. So you were out here for quite a while with Hope and Liam. What were you talking about?

Ridge: I was encouraging Hope to acknowledge their marriage... with a toast.

Brooke: Oh, Ridge, how could you do that?

Ridge: I believe that Hope is gonna pull herself together and do what needs to be done.

Brooke: I understand where you're coming from, but how can Hope acknowledge a marriage that's based on lies?

Thomas: Hey.

Hope: Hey.

Thomas: How's it going?

Hope: Fine. Just trying to get in the spirit of things.

Thomas: Yeah, that's understandable. I know it's hard.

Hope: I'm sorry. I don't want to drag you down.

Thomas: No. Gosh, that's impossible.

Hope: I don't want to feel this way. I know that I should rise above it, I-I mean, if for nothing else, then for Liam.

Thomas: Just do whatever you think is right, Hope. You don't--you don't have to feel like you need to be a hero.

Hope: (Sighs) Did you know that your dad wants me to public acknowledge the newlyweds at dinner tonight?

Thomas: Yeah. Yeah. He can be kind of an insensitive jerk. (Laughs)

Hope: Yeah, he can.

Thomas: Actually, you know, I don't understand what he was thinking asking you to do something like that.

Hope: He just...

Thomas: I...

Hope: I think he's just trying to do what he believes is right.

Thomas: (Sighs) So... what are you gonna do?

Hope: I don't know. Part of me would like to rip your sister a new one.

Thomas: Hope, I-it's Thanksgiving.

Hope: Well, maybe that would be something to give thanks for.

Eric: (Whispering indistinctly) It's just so rude.

Thorne: Hey, listen, Aly and R.J. are totally into the football game. They would like to eat in the den. I'd love to sit with them.

Stephanie: Oh, I'm sure you would. They're fine in the den. The adults are eating at the dinner table.

Eric: The football is gonna have to wait. Yeah, she sees right through you, you know. (Laughs)

Stephanie: (Laughs) Nothing changes. (Laughs)

Eric: I know.

Ridge: Hey, how we doin' in here?

Stephanie: Great.

Ridge: Wow, it's a good thing I brought along my appetite.

Eric: Ridge, I want to thank you.

Ridge: For what? You two did all the work.

Stephanie: No. For bringing us all together-- Eric and me and Hope and Steffy.

Ridge: We're family, Mother. We're here for each other always. You taught me that. So did you.

Eric: I owe you for this, Ridge.

Ridge: Wrong, wrong, wrong. I owe you. And you, Mother-- I owe you for everything.

Stephanie: Oh, honey, thank you. That's so sweet. Thank you. Mm! Now you go in there and get everybody to come to the table. It's time to eat.

Ridge: Absolutely.

Stephanie: Good. (Sighs)

(Voices overlapping)

Stephanie: I cannot wait.

Ridge: I'm so hungry!

Stephanie: I know. I'm so excited.

(Voices overlapping)

Ridge: I've been waiting for this for a long time.

Stephanie: Honey, Thanksgiving's the best time of the year.

(Voices overlapping)

Hope: Hey, uh, everybody, everyone, uh, before we sit down...

Stephanie: Shh, shh, shh.

Hope: I have something to say.

Brooke: Uh, honey, I-I think we're all really hungry, right?

Hope: No, it's, uh, it--it's fine. It'll be quick. It'll be quick.

Brooke: No, I don't think you really--

Hope: Mom, stop. I... didn't want to be here today. There are times in a person's life when holidays are very difficult, and this is one of those times for me. But as we all know, family, love, truth, honesty-- they're so important. So here I am, because nothing is more important than love. And when you find true love, you've got to grab it and hold onto it as long as you can. Liam and Steffy, congratulations on your marriage.

Stephanie: (Applauds)

Eric: Well, let's all, uh, let's all sit.

(Indistinct conversations)

Stephanie: Shall we, uh, hold hands?

Brooke: Oh, yes.

Steffy: Of course.

Stephanie: (Sighs) Eric and I have, um, a lot to be thankful for today, this Thanksgiving Day. We are gathered here at a table that is just groaning with the fruits of our labors, and we're able to share it with our friends, our children and their better halves, and our grandchildren and their significant others. We're blessed. We have been really blessed this year. Even though we've had some dark and... turbulent and stressful times, we've come through it as a family, because we never lost faith in the unexpected and... the belief that something good and second chances always come with a new day... The belief that hope prevails and love endures. So let us be thankful for everything that we have and for each other.

Hope: Amen.

All: Amen.

Liam: Amen.

Ridge: All right, let's eat.

Eric: Well, let's, uh...

Stephanie: Yes. (Cheering)

Eric: Now you--you're just gonna sit here.

Ridge: Carve that bird, Dad.
