Steffy: We can do this, Katie. We can have a fresh start. We are a family now. I mean, look, your husband is my father-in-law. My husband is your stepson.
Steffy: I want us to get along, don't you?
Katie: (Sighs) Sure I do.
Steffy: This would mean so much to Bill and Liam.
Katie: I bet it would.
Steffy: So what's stopping us? Nothing. Nothing. So let's just put our differences aside. If that's what you want, just tell me tell me that's what you want, please.
Bill: It works for you, does it?
Liam: (Laughs) Dad, this is awesome a new office? Are you kidding me I had no idea.
Bill: You've earned it, and you should have an office befitting of your position in the company.
Liam: (Inhales sharply) Does Katie know about this?
Bill: Yeah. I mentioned it to her. She thought it was a great idea. I wish she felt the same way about Steffy's seat on the board. But she will. It'll just take some time.
Liam: Um, I don't know. Katie's always had issues with Steffy.
Bill: And that's going to have to stop. Steffy is a member of this family. Katie will have to accept that, and she will.
Liam: (Groans) I wouldn't force it.
Bill: Liam, you know that I really didn't have a family to speak of growing up, and, uh, the fact is I never anticipated having one of my own. But thankfully, I do, and I have strong feelings about it. There can't be any middle ground.
Bill: We support each other, period. Don't forget that, son.
Eric: All right, good. Now let's get this off the floor. Let's shorten this, like, 3 inches here.
Ridge: Let's scoop this neckline another inch.
Rick: I'll e-mail the changes over to the cutting room.
Ridge: No, no e-mails. We're not going that route anymore.
Rick: Why is that? Security?
Thomas: Yeah, no texting, ether.
Rick: We got firewalls left and right.
Eric: And they're probably effective. We just don't want to take any chances, all right? Thank you, ladies. Let's take these downstairs. Oops, sorry.
Woman: Incredible designs, Mr. Forrester. It's a privilege to model them.
Ridge: Thank you.
Eric: Pam? Would you get the guys?
Pam: Oh, yeah. Of course.
Eric: Thanks, girls.
Eric: Looks good.
Rick: Wow. You guys just keep outdoing yourselves.
Hope: I am truly blown away.
Eric: That's because we are inspired by all the young talent in this room with us right now. Thomas, I'm told you're doing some more designing.
Thomas: Yeah, I'm working on it.
Ridge: Oh, he's doing more than that. It's excellent.
Hope: Does that mean you might give Thomas a collection?
Ridge: It does. And until we make that decision, I want to make sure his designs are closely guarded. They're still on the, uh, protected server, right?
Ridge: Good. Keep them there.
Stephanie: Hello. Oh.
Stephanie: Are you in the middle of something?
Eric: Well, yes, we are. We always are. Come on.
Stephanie: (Laughs) I want you to meet somebody. Oh, come on. Uh, this is Beverly. Beverly, this is my family. That's Eric. Uh, that's my grandson Tom. There's my son Ridge. There's Hope. And there's Rick, Eric's other son. And this is my sister Pam. This is Beverly.
Liam: The way you laid it on Katie that you're putting Steffy on the board-- I mean, don't--don't you at least think that you should have discussed that with her? I mean, she's your wife.
Bill: Well, that was my original intent, but as you saw, circumstances dictated that I tell her when I did. Liam, I was running this company long before Katie came along, and I don't need her approval for every decision I make.
Bill: Steffy is a member of the board now
Bill: Now there aren't too many people out there who ever outsmarted your dad. Now she accomplished that, so she should be savvy enough to win over my wife.
Katie: Forgive and forget-- so that's what you're suggesting?
Steffy: Yeah, that's one way of putting it.
Katie: You make it sound so easy.
Steffy: Because it is, Katie. We have a common interest-- the family, our family, yours and mine they are one in the same now.
Stephanie: Um, my sister Pam is the one that keeps the office running smoothly.
Pam: (Scoffs) She means I'm a glorified secretary.
Stephanie: Oh, stop it. You're more than that.
Pam: It's nice to meet you. Um, I've got work to do.
Thomas: Hey, didn't we see you at Dayzee's earlier?
Beverly: Yeah, Dayzee and I are friends.
Stephanie: She's been a big help to Beverly. Beverly has aged out of the foster system here in California.
Ridge: Thomas has done some mentoring with the foster kids.
Hope: I didn't know that.
Thomas: So how long have you been in the system?
Beverly: Well, s-since my mother, um...
Stephanie: Well, her mom's had some problems, but she's on her own now. Uh, she wants to go to college, and she wants to get a degree.
Eric: That's a worthy goal.
Beverly: Yeah, I can't believe I'm standing here in Forrester Creations. I've seen your ads in the magazines.
Thomas: She's much prettier in person, right? (Laughs)
Rick: Thomas is just biased.
Thomas: He's right. I am.
Bill: They've been in there a while. Maybe we should go check on them, make sure there hasn't been a bloodletting
Bill: Look at that. First phone call in your new office.
Liam: Yes, Hillary?
Liam: Oh, right. Uh, right. I totally forgot. I have a conference call.
Bill: Well, get on it. And enjoy your new digs.
Liam: Thanks, Dad. It's incredible.
Steffy: So what do you say, Katie? Can we let down the walls?
Katie: No, I don't think I can do that.
Steffy: (Sighs) What's stopping you?
Katie: I lack motivation.
Steffy: Family isn't enough motivation?
Katie: You will never be a part of my family.
Steffy: But I am, Katie.
Katie: For now, because of deception.
Steffy: Okay, do you know that Hope and Thomas are getting even closer?
Katie: (Scoffs) So what? That doesn't address the issue.
Steffy: If the issue is wanting what's best for your niece, it does.
Katie: One of the issues is how you manipulated Liam into marrying you.
Steffy: Wait, do you think Liam feels manipulated? Because I know he loves me, and the only one with the problem is you. Your husband doesn't have a problem. Liam doesn't have a problem.
Steffy: You're only hurting your marriage by continuing to bash your head against a wall.
Katie: Yeah, you know, you're really the last person I would go to for marital advice. But since we're on the topic, here's a question for you-- if I came onto your husband the way you've come on to mine, if I treated you the way you've treated me, would you be welcoming me into your family with open arms? I don't think so. Don't get me wrong. I would love to have a daughter-in-law, someone I respect. I don't respect you, Steffy, and don't think I ever will.
Beverly: You've made such a difference, your message.
Hope: I'm trying.
Beverly: That's what I want to do.
Hope: Then you will.
Beverly: Just like that?
Hope: Yeah. I mean, if you feel strongly about something, then yeah.
Beverly: Yeah, there's a lot of things I feel strongly about, but sometimes... stuff gets in the way.
Hope: Yeah, I know what you mean. Things have been getting in the way for me lately, too.
Hope: (Sighs) Uh, Thomas, uh, Beverly was just telling me that she wants to make a difference in the world.
Beverly: Probably just a pipe dream.
Thomas: Hey, dreams come true.
Beverly: Yeah, for some, they do, not so much people like me. You know, you--you get a break and then, uh...
Hope: Then what?
Beverly: (Scoffs) Things go bad.
Hope: Well, that's life, you know? Things go bad all the time.
Beverly: Yeah, but doesn't it mess with your head?
Hope: Yes, it does. But you've got to pick yourself up and move on.
Stephanie: Bev, you, uh, mentioned at Dayzee's that you were looking for a job.
Beverly: Yeah, been looking not so easy.
Eric: Well, maybe you just got lucky.
Stephanie: I believe that we might find something for you here.
Beverly: What? For real?
Ridge: How about as paid intern right here at Forrester?
Beverly: Me? Work here?
Bill: I'm not feeling the love, ladies. What's going on?
Katie: Steffy wants to mend fences.
Bill: Sounds reasonable.
Katie: Really? You think so? I think it's a little more complicated than that.
Steffy: You know, it doesn't have to be this way, Katie.
Katie: It wouldn't be if you hadn't had an affair with my husband.
Steffy: It wasn't an affair.
Katie: Really? What would you call it?
Bill: A mistake. We've all made them, haven't we, Katie?
Katie: Yeah, just like Steffy's marriage to Liam.
Steffy: Wow. Okay, you know what? We are both women here. And the way you feel about your husband is exactly the way I feel about my husband.
Steffy: And I admit, okay, when Hope broke it off, I took advantage, because I was in love.
Katie: And Liam was in love with Hope. You didn't even give them a chance to work things out.
Steffy: You know, when suddenly someone becomes available, and you're in love with him, you go for it. Wouldn't you do the same?
Katie: I wouldn't base my marriage on lies and manipulations. You could have given them a few days.
Steffy: And I would have if Liam asked me that. But he didn't. He proposed, and I accepted, Katie.
Bill: We've all accepted it, Katie. Time for you to do the same.
Katie: You know, after everything this woman has put us through, how can you ask me to just get over it?
Steffy: Look, I know we have our differences, Katie, but this isn't just one-sided.
Steffy: Come on. Your sisters have been bad-mouthing me for months.
Steffy: You know what? I don't like it, but I'm not gonna lose focus of my husband and my family, and you are a part of this family. Like it or not, we are joined by marriage. So it's either we're gonna get along, or we're just gonna be miserable.
Katie: Okay. Okay. Since we're all trying to be reasonable, how about a compromise? I mean, that's generally how people work out an impasse, right?
Bill: Sometimes. What did you have in mind?
Katie: I will attempt to be more accepting if you rescind your offer to give Steffy a seat on the Spencer board of directors.
Katie: I mean, I don't think this is too much to ask. Do you agree, Steffy?
Steffy: You know what? That's up to Bill to decide.
Bill: Putting Steffy on the board was a business decision.
Bill: It has nothing to do with what we're discussing.
Katie: It has everything to do with what we're talking about, because we're talking about my acceptance of her as a part of this family and a part of this business, and I feel that that should be earned, and I don't think she's done that.
Bill: Steffy is my son's wife.
Katie: So what? This is all moving way too fast. I mean, I didn't even get a seat on the board this quickly, and I'm your wife.
Bill: Steffy has a tremendous amount of business experience.
Katie: At Forrester, that's true. But I'm sure you didn't get a seat on that board this quickly. I mean, it must have taken you longer than a month, right?
Bill: Katie, this is not a discussion. I've already made the offer.
Katie: I don't care if you've made the offer. I can't believe you're not even trying to see this from my point of view. After everything she's done to Hope, after everything she'd done to us, how can you reward that type of behavior?
Bill: I am trying to bring our family together.
Katie: By giving her a major position in our company against my wishes.
Steffy: Katie, I am not a threat to you...
Steffy: And you really need to accept that.
Katie: Oh, my God. I'm not threatened by you. I just don't like you. And I see what's going on here. You're becoming way too close to my husband again. I've already caught you two in each other's arms behind closed doors. I mean, how do you think Liam would feel about that, huh, I mean, give your history of inappropriate behavior? I'd say one more moment like that, and he'll be done with you. Your marriage to Liam will be over.
Beverly: You-- you're offering me a job?
Stephanie: An internship.
Rick: But a lot of interns end up with full-time jobs.
Eric: Yeah, we can fit your schedule here around your classes at school once you start.
Beverly: (Sighs) But I have no experience.
Thomas: Well, interns don't. That's what it's all about-- getting training.
Hope: Mm-hmm. Yeah. You'll really like it here, Beverly. It's a great place to work. You'll learn a lot.
Beverly: Thanks. I can't.
Stephanie: Why not?
Beverly: I don't think I could handle it.
Stephanie: Well, of course you can. I can see that you're a very competent young lady. Didn't you finish school, get your G.E.D. on your own?
Beverly: But what if something happens?
Rick: Well, like what? Even if you spill coffee on Thomas, and it gets you fired.
Beverly: I'm the first to get blamed for anything. I just--I can't go through that again.
Hope: Beverly, this could be a whole new experience for you.
Beverly: I know. I can't believe you guys are all being so kind. I just don't want to screw up.
Stephanie: Well, how do you know if you don't try? You've got to take the risk. You've got to learn to trust in yourself.
Thomas: Don't pass this up, Beverly.
Hope: Come on. Give yourself a chance.
Rick: Yeah, go for it.
Beverly: You really think I can?
Ridge: You will be learning a lot, and we all have to start somewhere, don't we?
Beverly: Why are you doing this for me?
Eric: (Chuckles) Why wouldn't we? Everybody deserves a leg up. Maybe this will be your opportunity.
Beverly: All right. Count me in.
Stephanie: That's great. Congratulations.
Thomas: Twist your arm.
Beverly: Thank you so much.
Hope: Right? Yeah.
Rick: Good to have you.
(Cell phone rings)
Hope: Yeah. Oh. Sorry. Hold on, guys.
Hope: I'll be back.
Stephanie: So when should we have her start?
Eric: Well, I think now-- right now.
Liam: You got a minute?
Hope: Um, I-I'm kind of in the middle of something what's up?
Liam: Um... it's about this new ad you're running in "Eye on Fashion," this--this new layout-- um, you and Thomas.
Hope: Times change. People, too.
Liam: He replaced me.
Hope: (Sighs) You're married.
Liam: Well, you--you--you know I still...
Hope: (Sighs) Just don't, Liam.
Liam: (Sighs) So this is really the ad you want to run? I mean, this is--this is-- this is the new Hope for the Future, really?
Hope: What do you think?
Liam: Well, just maybe-- I mean, we--maybe we can have a cup of coffee or--or something and--and, um...
Hope: (Sighs) You know what, Liam? I-I-I'm really--I'm busy, so I have to go, okay? Um, bye.
(Song) When the rain is blowing your face and the whole world is on your case I could offer you a warm embrace to make you feel my love
Liam: Will you marry me?
Hope: Yes. (Laughs) Yes, I would like to be your bride.
