Bill: Right. Well, thanks for taking care of that. Yeah, I will, uh, I will tell him. He's right here. Thanks, Ramona. Steffy's flight arrived safely. She is getting settled in.
Liam: Oh. Is she okay?
Bill: Call her. Ask her yourself.
Katie: Ask who what? Everything okay with you and Hope?
Bill: (Coughs) Debatable.
Liam: Dad, quit it.
Bill: Can you blame me for being skeptical?
Katie: About what? What are we talking about?
Liam: We shouldn't be talking about any of this. So, like, drop it.
Katie: Okay, so this is about Hope. Maybe things didn't go very well? Where is she? Is she okay?
Hope: I just wanted to lose myself with Liam, you know, just--just not think about anything, you know, e-except--except how much we love each other. And then it started. I... (Sighs) I could hear Steffy's words again. I could hear her saying that I was committing... (Sighs) adultery, and it just--it made me really uncomfortable, and I-I-I tried to not think about, just, you know, focus on the two of us, but--but I-I couldn't.
Dr. Barton: Go on.
Hope: (Sighs) I... I wanted to be everything for Liam that I wasn't, you know, our first night together. But the more anxious I got, the more I realized that that was not going to happen. So -I-I took one of the anti-anxiety pills that you gave me. And honestly, I really didn't want to. I felt really... disappointed in myself. But now... (Sighs) now I'm glad I did.
Ridge: Well, what did I do to deserve that?
Brooke: (Sighs) It can't be easy saying good-bye to your daughter.
Ridge: I know Aspen isn't the other side of the world, but Steffy's dealing with a lot right now. She needs her family.
Brooke: She has her family. She has you.
Ridge: A lot of good that's doing, huh?
Brooke: Steffy has to accept that her marriage is over.
Ridge: I know that's what you and Hope want to believe, but Steffy loves Liam, and Liam still loves Steffy. I know it appears like Liam's moved on but I'm not so sure. And you know what? I don't know if Liam is either.
Brooke: Ridge, there's something you don't know. Hope came by the house this morning, and... well, she and Liam... (Sighs) they're going to be okay.
Ridge: Sorry, Logan, I'm still not convinced.
Stephanie: Neither am I, but it is what it is.
Brooke: Oh, boy Stephanie, we're in the middle of something.
Eric: Well, I'm sorry to interrupt, but I really have something I need to tell you.
Stephanie: Something he's actually dying to tell you.
Ridge: All right, if it's important, what is it?
Eric: In a moment of sheer madness, I proposed to your mother.
Stephanie: And in a moment of sheer madness, I accepted.
Brooke: (Laughs) So you two are--are getting married again?
Stephanie: It's worse than that. We've already done it.
Dr. Barton: So why don't you tell me about the rest of your night?
Hope: Uh, once I relaxed and then calmed down? (Chuckles)
Dr. Barton: Yeah. I'm sure Liam sensed the change. So the two of you made love. Was it better?
Hope: Yes. Much, much better. (Laughs)
Dr. Barton: And what about Steffy? Any changes there?
Hope: Uh, Steffy has actually left town.
Dr. Barton: Oh.
Hope: Yeah, she could be gone for weeks, for months. I... (Scoffs) I don't know. (Chuckles)
Dr. Barton: You sound relieved about that.
Hope: Uh, yeah, I am. I-I feel like a weight has been lifted off of me. You know, I feel like my issues are finally behind me, or they will be soon. You--you see it that way, too, right?
Ridge: All right, we're on our way. They need us in the cutting room to approve a change.
Eric: All right.
Ridge: Congratulations. I'm very happy for you.
Stephanie: Oh, honey, thank you. You sure you don't want us to share a little more with you?
Ridge: I don't want any more details.
Stephanie: Are you sure?
Ridge: I'm happy for both of--no, a-absolutely.
Stephanie: All right, because I know your father would be delighted to--
Eric: (Speaking indistinctly)
Stephanie: I'll have a martini waiting for you, honey, when you get home. Are you all right?
Brooke: (Laughs) I'm so happy for you! (Laughing) (Sighs)
Liam: Uh, Katie, it's all good. Hope's fine. I'm fine. She got a little nervous.
Katie: Well, of course. I mean, it's a huge step for any girl.
Bill: Especially for Hope, considering her issues.
Liam: Dad, stop, really. Hope and I have never been more connected, so get over it.
Dr. Barton: So in our last session, you opened up some about your life, and I know it wasn't easy, especially with your mother sitting right her. You two have a very, um... unique relationship.
Hope: Well, not every girl has a sex symbol for a mom.
Dr. Barton: Is that what you think of first when you think of your mother?
Hope: Uh... I wouldn't say that, you know, that's the first thing I-I think of, but... it's no secret that she's, you know, she's always put herself out there for the whole world to see.
Dr. Barton: Because of your mother's lingerie line?
Hope: Can you imagine... (Scoffs) what it's like for your guy friends... (Sighs) to have pictures taped up in their locker of your half-naked mother?
Dr. Barton: You felt she was selling sex?
Hope: I just--I felt like I wanted something different for my life. I-I knew I did.
Dr. Barton: Because of what we talked about before...
Dr. Barton: All the men in your mother's life?
Hope: Look, I'm--I'm-- you know, I'm not--I'm not trying to blame my mom. That's not what I want to do at all. I know that she has done things in the past that she's not proud of, and they are things that have affected me in ways that I am, you know, obviously just now realizing. But that's--you know, it's--it's done. It's over. It's in the past.
Dr. Barton: Okay. Then what about the men in your life? Was Liam your first boyfriend?
Hope: Uh, no. I dated a guy named Oliver.
Dr. Barton: Someone you liked very much?
Hope: Mm-hmm. We were in love. I thought... I thought we were.
Dr. Barton: What happened?
Daddy Yankee: Pose, pose, pose.
Daddy Yankee: Pose, pose.
Dr. Barton: Hope?
Dr. Barton: What is it? What are you thinking about?
Hope: Uh... (Sighs) (Clears throat) Um...
Daddy Yankee: Pose, pose pose, pose, pose, pose.
Hope: The worst night of my life.
Daddy Yankee: Vívetelo así amor pero amor dándome pose, pose, pose.
Stephanie: So then that lunatic... (Chuckles) Gladys Pope said, "I now pronounce you man and wife," he kissed me, and that was it.
Brooke: Well, then, I guess you're not going to want her to come to your anniversary party.
Stephanie: Gladys at a-- what? Wait a minute. What anniversary party?
Brooke: The one that Ridge and I are gonna throw for you.
Stephanie: Since when?
Brooke: Since now. Ooh, I have a great idea. I could even cater it, like the first time when I met you Forresters.
Stephanie: I don't have a good memory of that. That was the first time you laid eyes on Ridge. Unh-unh-unh-unh.
Brooke: It'll be a night you'll never forget.
Stephanie: It certainly will be if you cook. I've had your turkey.
Brooke: (Laughs) No, I-I'll have some help. Come on, Stephanie. Let me do this for you.
Liam: Look, Hope and I are fine. She's trying really hard here.
Bill: She shouldn't need to try. Steffy didn't need to try.
Liam: I love Hope. End of story.
Bill: We'll see. The longer Steffy stays away...
Katie: Whoa, whoa. "Stays away?" What are you talking about?
Liam: Yeah, she's in Aspen for a little while.
Liam: To... clear her head.
Katie: And where is she staying in Aspen? Is she staying at our house? Did you do this?
Bill: Come on. It--it was torture for Steffy. She--she couldn't keep looking at Hope and Liam together every day.
Katie: Oh, so you sent her to the one place where she can relive all of her memories?
Liam: She knows it's over.
Katie: No, she doesn't. She hasn't given up on you.
Bill: You know, I would think that you would be little Miss Katie cartwheel over this.
Bill: Steffy's gone. She can't interfere with Liam and Hope.
Katie: Oh, I wouldn't be so sure about that. Her distance doesn't have anything to do with interfering.
Liam: Oh, come--have a little faith in me, will you? Have little faith in my love for Hope.
Katie: Well, I guess Hope doesn't have to deal with Steffy on a daily basis now.
Bill: You know, let--let's try a-a little-- a little experiment. Let's keep Steffy totally out of the conversation, pretend she doesn't even exist.
Bill: Hope still has a ton of baggage.
Bill: Now know you don't want to hear this. You love Hope. But you're wearing blinders, son. Now I-I know it aggravates you, but I would be remiss in my duties as your father not to point this out. Hope has a bundle of issues, and they are going to reveal themselves, and you won't be able to hide from them.
Hope: (Sighs) I'm sorry. I don't know why I reacted like that.
Dr. Barton: Can you talk to me about it?
Hope: Um... yeah. Uh, something... something had happened at my high school graduation party.
Dr. Barton: Between you and Oliver?
Hope: No. Between Oliver and my mom. I was really excited, because Oliver had convinced a friend of his, Daddy Yankee, to come perform. It was great, because everyone was dressed up. You know, we had these cool outfits with these masks on. It was--it was supposed to be the graduation party to end all graduation parties.
Dr. Barton: Well, I mean, obviously, something went wrong.
Hope: (Sighs) Uh, my mom and Ridge were chaperones. And--and they dressed up, too, so they also had the masks on. And at one point... the two of them ended up out on the terrace together, or so my mom thought. It was just a really horrible, sick mix-up. (Sighs) (Groans)
Dr. Barton: Are you telling me that is wasn't Ridge that your mother was with on the terrace that night? It was your boyfriend Oliver?
Hope: I didn't think that I could ever forgive her... or Oliver, you know? I mean, he... I mean, yeah, he told me that it--you know, he thought it was me that he was with that night, but if that's what he thought, if that's how he thought I wanted my first time to be, you know, outside at a party on some terrace...
Dr. Barton: So that's why the two of you are no longer involved?
Hope: But it's also, you know, what lead me to Liam.
Dr. Barton: Well, obviously, this was an extremely painful experience.
Hope: I wasn't sure that I could ever really get over it, you know? But I did. (Sighs) I did, just like... (Groans) just like when that photographer tried to attack me. You know, I-I got over it. I did. And now I just want to marry the man I love and have a normal happy life.
(Computer alert chimes)
Hope: Oh, sorry about that. Hold on just a second. Oh, it's... it's Liam. (Giggles)
Dr. Barton: Oh, yeah? Well, go ahead. Take it.
Hope: You--you know what? No. I don't--I don't have to. No.
Dr. Barton: Liam knows you're in therapy, doesn't he?
Liam: Well, thank God for video conferencing. Otherwise, I'd have to imagine that beautiful smile.
Liam: You--you are smiling, right? I think I saw it.
Hope: Yes, I-I am now. (Laughs)
Liam: Where are you?
Hope: Um, I'm--I just-- I'm at an appointment. Where are you?
Liam: Uh, I'm at work. I just have a few things to finish up, and then I'm gonna head over to Dayzee's. We're still meeting Marcus and Dayzee there, right?
Hope: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yea, yeah, yeah. Um, I shouldn't be much longer here, okay? Um, so I love you, all right?
Liam: I love you, too.
Dr. Barton: I assume Liam doesn't know about the medication, either.
Hope: You know, I don't really think that there's a reason to tell him.
Dr. Barton: Because there are only two pills.
Hope: And because I'm-- I'm feeling a lot better. I really--I-I am, and I don't think that I should, you know, worry Liam.
Dr. Barton: Hmm. I know things are better, Hope, but I still feel that there are some issues that you haven't worked through yet that can affect your relationship with Liam, as well as-- as well as other issues that we haven't even touched on yet, including your father.
Hope: Oh. I... I don't even think about my father. I don't, and that's how I like it, you know? He--he's never been a part of my life, and that's... that's just fine. (Sighs) And as for me and Liam, I really feel like we're on track. I do. I mean, yes, the--the first couple days living together were... (Inhales sharply) a difficult adjustment... (Sighs) and I panicked, um, but I'm better. I mean, I am. I'm--I'm feeling so much better now, thanks to you. You really have helped me. You know, so--so thank you. Dr. Barton, I... I really love Liam. And I know that he and I are going to have a fantastic fulfilling life together.
Stephanie: You're just trying to win points with me.
Brooke: I gave up trying to win points with you a long time ago.
Stephanie: Oh, that isn't true. You always want my approval.
Brooke: I thought I had your approval now.
Stephanie: I just let you think that because I was dying.
Brooke: Well, you're not dying, not anymore. You beat the odds.
Stephanie: Honey, we're all dying.
Brooke: (Scoffs) Well, then all the more reason to celebrate every milestone, and your anniversary is certainly that.
Brooke: You and Eric, everything you've done-- you've created a wonderful family, you have a very successful fashion dynasty. But besides that, Stephanie, you've done a lot to make a lot of people's lives better. You've really given back.
Stephanie: Now you really are sucking up.
Brooke: No. I just want the chance to let you know how much I really do appreciate you.
Stephanie: I think you conveniently forget sometimes how miserable you made my life.
Brooke: And I regret that. (Sighs) And I believe that you do, too, because we had some very special moments, moments that made us realize what's really important in this life. I love you. Stephanie...
Brooke: Please, please let me do this for you.
Stephanie: (Sighs) You always get me with that one. No cooking on your part.
Brooke: (Laughs) Okay. No cooking... (Laughs) on my part. .
