Hope: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Liam: (Chuckles) For what?

Hope: Just for being you. (Sighs)

Liam: It's not getting any easier, is it?

Hope: No, I'm fine, as long as I don't go online, don't go out in public, or answer my phone.

Liam: (Sighs)

Hope: (Clears throat)

Liam: You know, for a while there, it really seemed like you had it under control.

Hope: Yeah, I thought so, too. (Sighs) (Breathing heavily) (Sighs)

Liam: So what happened?

Hope: (Sighs) Just tell me something happy. (Sighs) You're always good at that.

Liam: Oh. Okay. Um... my cousin is in town, and my aunt is bringing her over.

Hope: Your cousin?

Liam: Yeah. Yeah. Her name's Caroline.

Hope: Really?

Liam: Yeah.

Hope: What is she like?

Liam: Uh, I don't know. I've never met her, but I hear she's pretty talented.

Hope: Hmm.

Amber: (Sighs) Let me guess.

Rick: Caroline. (Sighs)

Amber: Not bad.

Rick: It's very good, Amber.

Amber: I'm sure your mother thinks she's that Donatella Versace.

Rick: (Sighs) Mother has her opinions. I have mine.

Amber: Your mother's opinion is that I should be out of your life, professionally and personally.

Brooke: No, Amber, my opinion is that you shouldn't even be in this building. Why are you still here? I told you to leave.

Amber: (Sighs)

Katie: Oh, they are here. Well, this is your cousin Liam...

Liam: Hey.

Katie: And his fiancée Hope.

Caroline: Oh, we finally meet.

Hope: Hi.

Liam: Hi, Caroline. Nice to meet you.

Caroline: Hi.

Hope: Hi, it's nice to meet you.

Caroline: Nice to meet you.

Liam: How are you, aunt Karen?

Karen: My talented nephew, how are you?

Liam: I'm good. They say I'm talented. I don't know if it's true.

Caroline: Well, your fiancée is talented as well.

Hope: Oh.

Bill: Yeah, Hope's pretty talented, all right, but she is not Liam's fiancée.

Katie: That's just a technicality.

Caroline: Well, I love your line. I'm a huge fan...

Hope: Thank you.

Caroline: And of your message.

Bill: Yeah, that's some message, all right. Of course, there as been a little controversy tied to it as of late.

Caroline: Designers are always controversial, Uncle Bill. It comes with the territory, right?

Liam: (Laughs)

Bill: Sure, Caroline, fashion designers can attract their share of controversy, but when they promise the public one thing and deliver another--

Liam: And anything else we can talk about, any at all?

Bill: Hey, I'm just saying that Hope took a very public, strong stand for abstinence. Now she is living with you a married man. There's bound to be a backlash.

Hope: Okay, Bill, that's really great. Can we talk about something else now?

Liam: So, Caroline, what's this I hear about Forrester Creations?

Caroline: Yes, that's why I'm here, at Brooke's invitation.

Hope: My mom?

Caroline: Yes, your mother offered me a job...

Hope: Really?

Caroline: Working with your brother Rick.

Rick: Amber and I were in the middle of a meeting. Let's not be rude, Mom.

Brooke: What are you meeting about?

Rick: I was asking her input on this. (Sighs)

Brooke: Why? You're not working with Rick, Amber, and you have to accept that.

Rick: Whoa, whoa. Rick will decide who Rick is gonna work with.

Brooke: Okay, normally, I would agree with that, but when it comes to Amber, I have to draw the line. This company needs you, Rick. Your line has to be a success.

Rick: And it will be.

Brooke: Yes, I have no doubt about that if you're working with Caroline.

Rick: Don't micromanage my life. I do know what I'm doing.

Brooke: I love you, Rick, and I'm worried about you. Amber has hurt you many times before. Don't let her do it again.

Hope: I think that you and my brother are gonna make a really great team.

Caroline: I really like his work. It's refined, yet edgy.

Hope: Has he seen any of yours?

Caroline: I showed him my book.

Hope: Yeah?

Karen: Tell them what he said.

Caroline: He said it was very Forrester.

Katie: Well, that's wonderful.

Liam: When do you start?

Caroline: They're having a reception at Eric and Stephanie's place so that I can meet people.

Liam: I'm assuming Amber's gonna be there.

Katie: Yeah, you can count on that.

Caroline: This Amber seems like quite the character.

Liam: Uh...

Bill: You know what she tried to pull on your cousin?

Caroline: Oh, the paternity thing. I heard.

Karen: She's got a lot of nerve, that one.

Caroline: She also has a lot of talent. I saw some of her renderings.

Hope: Yeah, well, that's why she's partnering with Rick.

Caroline: Is that the only reason?

Hope: Um... I think Rick has kind of a blind spot when it comes to Amber.

Caroline: So... it's more than professional?

Liam: (Laughs)

Hope: You know, Rick's got a mind of his own. I feel like you tell him one thing, a lot of times, he'll do the opposite.

Caroline: Oh, that's not always a bad trait.

Katie: So apparently Rick made quite an impression on you.

Caroline: I have a feeling that Rick makes an impression on everyone.

Hope: (Laughs)

Bill: So I'm surprised you didn't come to me if Caroline was looking for a job.

Katie: Where Bill can keep an eye on you.

Karen: She wants to be a designer, not a journalist.

Bill: She could write about fashion.

Karen: Well, maybe if you had someone as good-looking as Rick Forrester over here.

Caroline: Okay, enough.

Hope: Okay, I-I'm sorry to break this up, but I actually have to get back to the office.

Liam: Are you feeling any better?

Hope: Yeah. Yeah, I'll be fine. Mm-hmm

Liam: All right, call me if you need anything.

Hope: Okay, I will. Caroline... (Sighs) Welcome to Forrester. I'm really looking forward to getting to know you.

Caroline: Oh, me, too.

Hope: Okay. Bye, everyone.

Caroline: Bye.

(Door closes)

Caroline: You're worried about her.

Liam: Uh... yeah, she's-- she's never been under this kind of pressure.

Bill: No one's fault but her own.

Caroline: So tell me more about your nephew. (Laughs)

Rick: You'll definitely have the proofs by morning, and then we can make the adjustments after the meeting. Right. Thank you. So where were we?

Amber: Oh, your mother was just slandering me, as usual.

Brooke: Your actions speak for themselves.

Amber: Can anyone ever change your point of view?

Brooke: I've given you many chances, Amber, and I've regretted it every time.

Rick: All right, let's just be real about this. The only reason my-- why my line has gotten as far as it has is because of our partnership. Amber and I, we work well together.

Amber: You--you like our work before you knew I was involved.

Brooke: I'm not saying you're not talented, but there's many talented designers. And it takes a particular kind of designer to work here at Forrester Creations, and it's not you.

Amber: Listen, I am just asking for a chance, okay? If it doesn't work out, I--if--if our work falls flat, if--if it doesn't work out for Rick, then I will leave. But please just give me a chance.

Brooke: I will give you a glowing recommendation.

Amber: (Sighs)

Brooke: I'm sure there's a number of houses that you could work at but this place is wrong for you. You see this? (Sighs) This is Forrester. You are not. You know what I'm talking about. And Caroline's perfect to work here. She's the kind of designer that we look for as an A-list designer. She's beautiful. She's smart. She's intelligent. She's a natural. She'll represent this company beautifully. Oh, come on. You've met her. You have to agree with me.

Amber: (Scoffs) You know this-- this isn't about my work, Rick. Even your mother knows it's good. This is personal. She doesn't like me. Please, don't let her destroy everything we've built together.

Erica: Hope, how are you? Do you have a minute?

Hope: Erica.

Erica: Just a few questions. Are you living with Liam now?

Hope: Um... how did you get into the building?

Erica: My--my readers want to know what's going on. Do you feel like a hypocrite? That's what they're calling you.

Hope: No, no, no, I'm-- I'm not a hypocrite, no.

Erica: But you were seen kissing another woman's husband. You were seen kissing Liam, another woman's husband.

Hope: Okay, um, okay, no, I'm--I'm not going to discuss this with you right now.

Erica: Hope for the Future-- it's in trouble, isn't it?

Hope: No, stop it.

Erica: I'm giving you a chance to tell your side.

Rick: Hey, what's going on?

Hope: I'm not going to talk about this. Please leave now!

Brooke: Honey, come inside.

Rick: How did you get in here? We need to talk.

Brooke: Come on.

Erica: You've slept with him, haven't you, Hope?

Brooke: Honey, it's all right. It's okay.

Hope: How did she even get in here?

Brooke: I don't know, but I intend to find out.

Hope: I can't deal with this.

Brooke: She has nothing on you.

Hope: Well, of course she does. There are pictures of me and Liam plastered all over the Internet.

Brooke: Nobody knows what happened.

Hope: I have to do something. I have to do something about this.

Brooke: You have to get control of yourself, okay?

Hope: How am I supposed to do that when everyone is talking about me?

Brooke: Call your psychiatrist. Call Dr. Barton.

Caroline: Well, I have to get to work.

Karen: (Laughs)

Caroline: I love the sound of that.

Karen: Is Rick expecting you?

Caroline: We're gonna go over some of my designs.

Bill: Yeah, I'll bet. Keep the door open.

Katie: He's a good guy. Go have fun.

Caroline: All right, bye.

Karen: Bye, sweetheart.

Katie: (Chuckles) Bye. I'm so glad you're here.

Caroline: Me, too. It's so good to see you.

Bill: Did I mention, keep the door open?

Caroline: Oh, Uncle Bill.

Katie: All right, have fun.

Caroline: Bye!

Karen: I think...

(Door closes)

Karen: She's taking an interest in that young man.

Katie: Well, she could do worse.

Bill: We'll see about that.

Katie: You're awfully quiet. You worried about Hope?

Liam: (Sighs)

Brooke: Honey, there's nothing wrong with asking for help when you need it.

Hope: (Sighs)

Brooke: You're going through a really difficult time. It's okay to reach out.

Hope: I know. I know. I know I need to get control of this.

Brooke: And you will. Dr. Barton will help you. Honey, you're in love. There's nothing wrong with that. And what the press is doing is so unfair. Just don't let this affect your relationship with Liam. Call Dr. Barton. I'm gonna be downstairs dealing with Security.

Hope: Okay. Hi, Dr. Barton. It's Hope Logan. I need to see you.

Dr. Barton: Well, I'm going to be away for a few days. I could schedule something for next week.

Hope: Okay. (Sighs) Um... I really need help right now. I-I really need something to get me through.

Dr. Barton: We can talk about that next week.

Hope: Dr. Barton, can I please just have a couple more of those anti-anxiety pills? Please? Um... I just need a-a couple more. I need something that will keep me calm and--and--and keep me from getting overwhelmed. Can I just have a couple for while you're away?

Dr. Barton: Hope, I don't like to prescribe any medication until I've seen you, and I can see you next week.

Hope: Okay. Okay, that's fine. Then just as soon as you're back. Thanks. (Sighs)

Erica: Why didn't you just throw me out of the building?

Rick: I thought we'd have a little chat first.

Erica: What are we chatting about?

Rick: (Chuckles) My sister and how you're gonna cut her some slack.

(Door opens)

Caroline: Oh, I'm sorry. I'll just--I'll wait out here.

Rick: No, no, no. Come on in. I'm not gonna be long.

Erica: Hope's not being very cooperative.

Rick: Mm-hmm. Would be, in her place?

Erica: Ooh, what is this?

Rick: That's, uh, that's top secret. I'll tell you what, you keep Hope out of your column, I'll give you an exclusive-- what I'm working on right now.

Erica: Are you working alone?

Rick: I'm collaborating. Do we have a deal?

Erica: We might. Can I pencil you in for that interview?

Rick: My people call yours unless I read about Hope.

Erica: Well, I look forward to the call.

Rick: This is creating quite a stir around here

Caroline: You like it?

Rick: Me, my mom, Ridge, you know, even Amber is--

Caroline: High praise.

Rick: Yeah, I can't tell you how excited I am about... this arrangement.

Caroline: You're not just doing it because your mother-- I know she's pressuring you.

Rick: Uh, that's my mother. I'm used to it. She knows I'm gonna do what I want to do anyway.

Caroline: That does seem to be your reputation.

Rick: Oh, my reputation?

Caroline: (Chuckles)

Rick: I didn't know I had one of those. Gosh, tell me, so I can-- so I can live up to it.

Liam: Caroline's great. It's gonna be... (Sighs) Nice having her here.

Katie: Yeah, maybe she and Hope will become friends.

Liam: Oh, Hope could use that, all this negative publicity, you know.

Bill: A simple solution, Liam--Hope moves out, Steffy moves back in

Katie: Oh, God.

Bill: The whole thing blows away like it never happened.

Katie: (Scoffs)

Karen: It's a little late for that, don't you think, Bill?

Liam: It's not gonna happen, Dad.

Bill: Why can't I get you to understand--

Liam: No, no, no, no, no, no. It's not gonna happen. I don't want it to happen, okay? Hope and I are together. She's good with that. I'm good with that. The way that she's handled this whole thing has been amazing. One minute, she's dragged down. The next minute, she's pulling herself back up again. It's amazing. I-I totally respect that, and I love her for that.

Bill: Does the movie "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" mean anything to you?

Hope: What do you want, Amber?

Amber: You're calling a psychiatrist?

Hope: You were eavesdropping?

Amber: Well, the door was open.

Hope: And you were just standing there listening?

Amber: (Scoffs) What's the big deal? Everyone in L.A.'s been to a shrink from time to time.

Hope: That was a very private conversation, Amber. Do you know what that word means, private? Between me and my doctor-- no one else.

Amber: You were asking for anti-anxiety medication.

Hope: That is also very private.

Amber: So what? You're under some stress. You're popping a pill once in a while just to smooth things over. I mean, who cares?

Hope: Amber, you cannot tell anybody.

Amber: Jeez, you--you know what, Hope? It--it's really not that big of a deal.

Hope: No, no, it is a big deal to me.

Amber: Why? I mean, it's just a little pill. It's... oh. No one knows about the pills or the doctor visits, hmm? Just you and your mom-- it's your little secret you're keeping from Liam, hmm? Does he even know you're seeing a psychiatrist?

Hope: I'm not discussing this with you.

Amber: Hey, you know what? I'm just concerned.

Hope: (Scoffs) Concerned?

Amber: Yes. I know what it's like, Hope, to be under a microscope, to be beaten down, not a friend in a world-- well, except, you know, you have Liam, and... (Sighs) I have Rick... (Sighs)

Hope: (Sighs)

Amber: Which is even now being threatened.

Hope: Amber, you and Rick work together. It is not like Liam and me.

Amber: True. My situation is different.

Hope: Amber, you hurt Rick and my family and Liam and me.

Amber: Yeah, but that... (Sighs) That wasn't me.

Hope: (Scoffs)

Amber: That was someone else. I look back at that person, and I-I don't even know her. (Sighs) I'm--I'm just--I'm just so different now. I wish everyone could see that. There is one thing that's the same between us. We both stand to lose someone.

Hope: Liam and I are in love. Steffy's gone. She is no longer a threat.

Amber: I'm not talking about Steffy. I'm talking about these secrets that you're keeping from Liam. I mean, wow, it's just--anxiety medication, visits to the shrink? You know how Liam feels about secrets. Isn't that why he broke up with Steffy?

Hope: I'm not listening to this.

Amber: I'm just saying that sometimes we are not as completely honest as we should be. And... we could risk losing the people we care about the most if they find out.

Hope: (Sniffles)

Amber: You know what I mean? I don't want to lose Rick, and I don't want you to lose Liam. Help me, Hope, and I'll help you.
