Doctor: Katie, you worry me. You seem very stressed.
Katie: Well, I'm hoping that's about to change. (Sighs) So what's your diagnosis? Steffy's condition-- is it as serious as we've been lead to believe or not?
Bill: Stop looking at me like that. You and I didn't exchange vows. You're not my wife, and I didn't commit murder.
Justin: I know, but you deceived Steffy and her entire family, letting them believe that she has a blood clot that could cause a stroke or kill her.
Bill: Despite my well-earned reputation, I'm not some, uh, heartless bastard. The fact is, I did what I did to save a marriage. Liam was ready to march into that hospital room and tell Steffy he was leaving her for Hope. And my son will never reach his full potential if he is with that self-involved little girl. And Steffy? Steffy would have been devastated, so you see, my interceding was the best for all concerned.
Justin: If you say so, Bill.
Bill: I do say so. And if I was the kind of person who left everyone to their own devices, this company wouldn't be where it is today. Now... as soon as I feel their marriage is on solid footing, we'll do another M.R.I. The clot will have disappeared, and everyone can dance around the maypole.
Bill: I did what I had to do, Justin. Liam was gonna be sucked back into a relationship with Hope, and that girl was and always will be wrong for him.
Beverly: That one's my favorite. You look like a fairy princess.
Hope: I felt like one. Only now I'm wondering... (Sighs) If maybe this was the wrong message. No one's life is a fairy tale. I don't have to tell you that. Maybe it's time I stopped being so naive.
Liam: I don't care who's wearing it, Steve. Mumus are not sexy. Just call me when you change the color, okay? Hey, whoa.
Steffy: I can't believe I dozed off.
Liam: Rest. Rest. You need your rest. Come on.
Steffy: What? No. No, no, no, no. That's all I've been doing. You won't let me lift a finger.
Liam: -I know, because you're not out of the woods yet, and until you are--
Steffy: No, I-I just hate being sidelined- especially everything that's happening at Forrester.
Steffy: Of course, Hope assured me that they're muddling their way through.
Liam: Is that what she told you?
Steffy: You know what I told her?
Liam: You told her that as soon as your clot dissolves, she better watch out, because you're gonna make up for lost time at warp speed?
Steffy: But she-- she already knows that, just like she needs to know that I need to stay calm until then. And I will... if she keeps her distance from you. And maybe she finally caught the message, huh?
Beverly: For what it's worth, I don't think you're naive at all. I mean, you're beautiful, smart, admired by young women everywhere for what you stand for. They look up to you, Hope. I look up to you.
Hope: You shouldn't.
Liam: So when you finish your tea, we should, uh, probably get going. I don't want you to be late for your appointment.
Steffy: Wait, what appointment?
Liam: Dr. Montgomery-- you're got another M.R.I. scheduled.
Steffy: No, it hasn't been that long since my first scan.
Liam: Steffy, I'm not taking any chances with your health.
Steffy: I mean that much to you, do I?
Liam: Well, I'm your husband, aren't I?
Steffy: Yes, you are.
(Knock on door)
Bill: Come in. Still nothing?
Alison: I'm sorry. I can't imagine what happened. I don't lose things.
Bill: Well, it's just a missing M.R.I. it's not the end of the world.
Justin: Look, Bill, if Katie got a hold of Steffy's M.R.I. and then she goes to the doctor's with it--
Bill: The doctor will confirm there's a blood clot. That's what the M.R.I. shows. Game over.
Doctor: What the other two doctors have said is right.
Doctor: The scan shows a very definite blood clot in the brain. Fortunately, for this patient... invasive surgery is not indicated. The clot should just dissolve on its own. But it is critical that the patient is not upset in any way, or the clot could dislodge and cause a stroke.
Katie: Right. I understand that.
Doctor: Obviously, this comes as a relief.
Katie: Yeah, it does. You have--you have no idea what's been going through my head. I mean, I should probably have my head examined. (Laughs) Thank you so much for seeing me. I-I won't take up any more of your time.
Doctor: Oh, Kate, wait. There's just one more thing.
Beverly: Hope, what's going on? You're usually so...
Hope: Sure of myself? Sure of the things I believe in?
Beverly: You based an entire line-- an entire clothing line on your message and your values, making it okay to stand up for something that really matters, including abstinence, if that's what a young woman chooses. I mean, you're making a difference.
Hope: I only thought I did. Now I-I think that I just set myself and anyone who would listen to me up for heartbreak and disappointment.
Justin: Katie's not answering?
Bill: Yeah, she's probably tied up somewhere.
Bill: Liam. Liam. He was here earlier. He probably saw the folder on Alison's desk, and he took it home with him.
Justin: Okay, so where is he now?
Bill: Where he should be-- at home with Steffy. You know, I'm gonna take a run over there, grab that M.R.I., Put it away for safe keeping.
Steffy: Are you sure this s necessary? I feel fine.
Steffy: Of course, I'd feel a lot better when Dr. Montgomery gives me the a-ok.
Liam: Probably a little soon for that.
Steffy: What, for the blood clot to dissolve, you mean?
Liam: You know what? Actually knowing you, you might defy the odds and get lucky, so...
Steffy: I already am.
Doctor: This M.R.I., where was it taken and by whom?
Katie: Um, well, I told you, my daughter-in-law got into an accident in Cabo. She struck her head. Uh, they took her to a hospital there, and the--the doctor took this scan.
Doctor: This scan?
Doctor: And then it was reviewed in detail?
Katie: Um, yes, I'm assuming, and--and then it was also reviewed by Dr. Montgomery here when Steffy got here.
Doctor: Ramon Montgomery, your husband's personal physician here in L.A. and what exactly were Dr. Montgomery's findings?
Katie: Um, well, that she had clot, uh, on her brain and that she didn't need to have an operation, that it was going to dissolve on its own. Why are you asking me these questions? You just concurred with the previous two doctors.
Doctor: Yes, I did.
Doctor: This isn't your daughter-in-law's M.R.I.
Katie: What do you mean, it's not hers?
Doctor: While I was reviewing Steffy's scan, I also checked her hospital medical records. This is a scan taken last year after Steffy fell and hit her head on the bathtub. This is the scan from Cabo. Obviously, these are brain scans of two different people.
Doctor: Katie, can I get you some water?
Katie: No, I-I-I'm fine.
Doctor: Obviously, there's been a mistake, a mix-up with another patient's M.R.I.
Doctor: Your daughter-in-law will need a follow-up as soon as possible and another M.R.I. so we can determine what her condition really is. Would you like me to schedule it?
Katie: Uh, no. No, thanks. I'll--I'll--I'll take care of it.
Doctor: Yes? Oh, good, I'll be right there. I have to see a patient.
Katie: All right. Uh, thank you very much for your time.
Doctor: Are you sure you're all right?
(Cell phone rings)
Katie: Where are you?
Bill: Cliff house. Where are you?
Katie: How's Steffy?
Bill: She's doing well as far as I know. She and Liam aren't here right now.
Katie: Stay where you are. We need to talk.
Hope: I have always tried to live my life in a way that I could be proud of. But when you just keep losing out in the end... I can't be the only one who feels this way. I can't be the only one who wonders what has happened to the world. I-I mean, don't honesty and values mean anything? Or is everyone out for themselves? I believed hat we were better than that, and that is what I was trying to get across with Hope for the Future, that we can do better, that we can do better for ourselves, for our bodies, for the planet that we live on, but I just--I'm not sure that I believe that anymore.
Dr. Montgomery: I thought you should know your son phoned me earlier.
Dr. Montgomery: Scheduling a follow-up M.R.I. for is wife. He was pretty insistent.
Bill: Meaning they're heading over there.
Dr. Montgomery: Now I could probably come up with some kind of excuse to postpone.
Bill: No, no, no. Go ahead. Run the M.R.I. just make sure when you give them the results, there's no discernable change from the first one. Steffy's blood clot...
Dr. Montgomery: Has not yet dissolved.
Woman: Excuse me, Doctor. Mr. and Mrs. Spencer are here.
Dr. Montgomery: Thanks, Kathy.
Bill: Don't let me down, Ramón. (Sighs)
Bill: Hi, Baby. How long have you been here?
Beverly: The way you're talking-- you're not thinking of canceling Hope for the Future?
Hope: If I don't believe in the message anymore... (Sighs) What's the point?
Beverly: A lot of girls out there still do believe in your message, myself included... or doesn't someone like me count?
Hope: No, I-I'm not saying that.
Beverly: Then explain it.
Beverly: You know, I don't want to hear you tell me that it's all been for nothing.
Hope: I realize the line has had an impact. I know.
Beverly: No not--not the line, Hope. You. You've been the voice for every girl out there that still believes that principles and values matter. I mean, you've helped us realize that feeling good about ourselves comes from making the right choices, not the... (Scoffs) Easy or popular ones. That's why we respect you so much, even if you are blonde and gorgeous.
Beverly: We also respect you because of how you handle yourself, even when things get really hard, you know, like they are for you right now.
Hope: (Sighs) I was so ready to marry Liam. And we were so close to making that happen. But then it-- it all just unraveled, and the more I tied to straighten it out, the--the more complicated things got. So I had to accept what was-- Liam's marriage to Steffy, that he was moving on, and--and I didn't think that I could do that. But Thomas did. I mean, that's--that's why he whisked me off to Cabo, only we weren't the only ones there. (Laughs) Liam and Steffy were there, too.
Hope: And you know what? Thomas and Steffy knew that, and they kept it from us.
Beverly: They were... probably just afraid of what would happen if... you know.
Hope: I know Liam still loves me as much as I love him. But I also know that he loves his wife. (Sighs) And because of her condition, he's--he's tied to her. My Aunt Katie thinks that there may be more going on, but I don't know. I don't know. I... all I know is that every day Liam is with Steffy, the chances of them staying together increases, and I don't think there's anything that can change that... at least, I-I-I don't see what could.
Dr. Montgomery: The headaches?
Steffy: They're pretty much gone.
Liam: I mean, that's-- that's a good sign, right, Doc?
Dr. Montgomery: Yeah. Well, we'll do the follow-up M.R.I. and see what's really going on in there, and then we'll have a better idea of where--where things stand.
Katie: Steffy and Liam still aren't home?
Katie: And you don't know where they went?
Bill: Well, actually, I do. They went to the hospital.
Katie: Really? Why?
Bill: Liam ordered another M.R.I. for his wife. He wants to make sure Steffy makes a full recovery.
Katie: You must be very proud of him for that.
Bill: I want this marriage to survive, Katie. Of course, you know that.
Katie: Yeah, I do. Although, until today, don't realize just how much. You know to know where I've been?
Bill: I was trying to reach you on your cell, but it went to voicemail.
Katie: You were looking for me. Why?
Bill: You know why. You saw the folder on Alison's desk, and you just couldn't resist, could you?
Katie: So how does this work? I mean, you're in a hospital in Cabo. How did you get the doctor to go along with it? How much did it cost?
Bill: How much did it cost? I don't know what you're talking about, Katie.
Katie: I showed the M.R.I. to my doctor, and she confirmed that there is a blood clot.
Bill: Well, of course she confirmed there's a blood clot. Two other doctors confirmed it. How many confirmations do you need?
Katie: What do I need? The truth. Do you even know what that is anymore? You've been so busy trying to cover your tracks, but you didn't cover them well enough. The M.R.I. scan that you're trying to pass off as Steffy's is not hers.
Bill: For God sake, Katie, come on.
Katie: Steffy hit her head on the bathtub last year, and they did an M.R.I. at the hospital. My doctor compared the two of them. Guess what? Two different people, two different brains. But you knew that, didn't you? You manipulated this from the beginning, you and Steffy, and I keep asking myself why, but I already know the answer. This isn't so much about keeping Hope and Liam apart. This is about keeping Steffy in the family where you can have her close without raising suspicions. What you've done to your son, what you've done to Steffy's family, it's cruel, and it's gonna stop tonight.
Bill: Katie. Katie! Katie, come on. You're overreacting.
