Bill: Alison, get Oliver Sharpe on the phone.
(Cell phone rings)
Oliver S: Hello, sir.
Bill: Checkin' in on you, Ollie. You understand what I want, right?
Oliver S: Hope Logan out of the picture.
Bill: And how to accomplish that?
Oliver S: If anybody finds out I'm behind this, Mr. Spencer--
Bill: Make sure they don't. What good are you to me if I can't count on you, Oliver?
Hope: So what do I pack? What will the weather be like?
Liam: Mm, like Aspen. I mean, you've been there before during ski season.
Hope: Never with you.
Liam: You--you know, I don't think my presence will change the climate too much. I--
Hope: (Laughs) I know. I'm just being silly.
Hope: Suddenly, I am very, very happy at the idea of getting away from all this drama and publicity and staying in a little hideaway with you.
Liam: Uh, it's not exactly "little." Have you met my dad?
Hope: (Laughs) Okay, well, right now, I could kiss him for opening up his place to us like this. And I thought he had no use for me.
Hope: I know you're going to be working in Aspen, so I promise, I won't be too clingy.
Liam: (Chuckles) Hey, no, be as clingy as you want, trust me. What makes me nervous is when I'm not with you, but you're not where I thought you said you were supposed to be.
Hope: That won't happen again, okay? I will wait patiently for you by the fire and have an amazing dinner for you when you get home.
Liam: Oh, good lord don't do that. You'll be bored out of your mind.
Liam: (Laughs) No, no, the woods around my dad's place are really, really amazing. I mean, you gotta see 'em. You should go take a walk, go skiing. I promise you, like, 75% of the work I'm gonna be doing is me schmoozing, and there's only so much of that I can take, anyway.
Hope: You're gonna be seeing a lot of Steffy, aren't you?
Liam: Uh, I don't know about "a lot." I mean, she'll be there, representing Forrester.
Hope: I think that you should invite her back for dinner one night.
Liam: I think she will not like that idea at all.
Hope: I don't think she will, either.
Hope: But you know what? The three of us need to work on a better relationship. She needs to realize that your future is with me, and I think that Aspen is a great place to start.
Liam: (Inhales quickly)
Bill: So when Liam comes back from Aspen, he will be coming home alone. Hope for the Future will be part of the past.
Justin: Oh, is that the part where I'm supposed to say you're a genius?
Bill: Only if you really feel inspired.
Justin: (Chuckles) Yeah, right.
Bill: Look, it accomplishes what needs to happen.
Justin: Well, if you want your wife and your son to have nothing more to do with you, then yeah, it should accomplish that.
Donna: Forrester. No... (Sighs) Pam is not here. Can I help you? Hello? Hello? (Scoffs) Oh, God. (Sighs)
Rick: That meeting that Steffy called - start without me?
Donna: Oh. Meeting--let's see... oh, honey, I don't see you on the list.
Rick: Well, I'm sure that Ridge and Steffy don't want me there, but... (inhales sharply) I really need to be in that meeting, Aunt Donna.
Donna: Okay. (Chuckles) Go ahead. I-I think they're just getting started.
Rick: Thank you. Hey. You want to crash a secret meeting with me? Sure, you do.
Caroline: I do?
Rick: Yeah, you'll keep everyone on good behavior.
Donna: Ohh, boy. I hope I don't regret this. (Sighs)
Steffy: You know, ski line is such a departure for us. I mean, we can't just jump into it without technical research.
Steffy: You know, we have to--
Thomas: I'm sorry, Rick. Were you invited to this meeting?
Rick: I'm sure it's an oversight that my mother and sister aren't here, either. Are we discussing Aspen fashion week?
Ridge: It's not a conspiracy, Rick. It's just last-minute.
Steffy: Wait a minute. Wait a minute. You-- you must be the famous Caroline. We're in-laws.
Caroline: Steffy, right. Your brother has told me so much about you.
Steffy: Warned you, I'm sure. Well, hey, you know, I no one gave you the 4-1-1 on Rick, I'll be happy to.
Rick: I'm on good terms with all my exes.
Brooke: There you are.
Hope: Hey. Hi, Mom.
Hope: Uh, would you say that Aspen at night is dressier or more casual than L.A.?
Brooke: You're going?
Hope: Oh, well, Liam's covering Fashion Week, and he wants me to go with him.
Brooke: Oh, honey, I'm not sure that's a great idea.
Steffy: In the skiwear, we're gonna be dealing with fabrics and colors that we don't have that much experience with.
Rick: (Clears throat) Speak for yourself.
Steffy: Bright oranges, electric greens-- safety on the slopes is a required functionality.
Rick: Safety-- th-th-this was the top-secret meeting I wasn't supposed to hear?
Ridge: Rick, are you gonna contribute or just complain?
Rick: I-I think that Steffy has an excellent strategy. It'll take the attention off the Hope for the Future problem, the pirated line, and the show we had to cancel.
Thomas: I agree.
Rick: But if anyone is going to Aspen to scope out the competition, that should be Carline and me.
Bill: You're nothing but negative since you and Donna got divorced, you know that?
Justin: Oh, was I all kittens and butterflies before?
Bill: You've got a son. Are you telling me you wouldn't take drastic measures for his protection?
Justin: Hope Logan is not a threat to Liam's health or his bank balance.
Bill: She might not be a threat to his physical health, but she is absolutely a threat to his emotional and mental well-being, and I am getting her out of his life.
Justin: "Dollar" Bill, people love their mistakes. They can't part from them. Look at you. You have tried to mess with this boy's life and almost been reverse-disowned how many times? And here you are, at it again.
Bill: Well, he's not gonna find out this time.
Liam: Who's not gonna find out about what?
Justin: Oh, no, it's, uh, just my son prying for publication details I'm not sure that Forrester Creations should have.
Liam: Oh. (Chuckles)
Bill: Hope would never do that, would she?
Liam: No, never.
Bill: What'd I tell you?
Justin: You think you're always right, don't you? (Sighs) Whatever. See you.
Liam: Marcus is putting the Spencer empire in jeopardy? Really?
Bill: Let me ask you a question-- what's a man's best friend?
Liam: A dog?
Bill: Please. Paranoia. Cultivate it.
Hope: Mom, I'm surprised. I thought that you'd be excited for me.
Brooke: Fashion week in Aspen is huge. Press is going to be everywhere, and those same people that were hounding you here are gonna be hounding you there. Is that what you really want?
Hope: I just want to be with Liam. (Chuckles)
Brooke: Oh, sweetie. (Sighs) You have so many painful memories there.
Hope: Yeah, I know, I know, but it's--it's different now I got the guy. (Chuckles) I'll keep a really low profile. The press, they won't even be expecting me. Liam wants me to be there with him. I mean, do I really need a better reason to go? Besides, after Steffy's brainstorm about going to research her new line, there's no way I will not be going.
Thomas: Here we go. (Sighs)
Thomas: Rick Forrester, the superhero.
Caroline: I don't understand. Why am I going to Aspen?
Steffy: Oh, this is just vintage Rick, Caroline.
Ridge: You can't decide what you really want, can you, Rick? First, you, uh, want to work with Amber in Couture. Then it's the Intimates line. Then it's back to Amber. Then it's working with Caroline.
Steffy: Are you listening, Rick? Are you starting to understand why nobody takes you seriously?
Donna: Excuse me. Sorry, um, I have Steffy's itinerary and vouchers.
Rick: Well, I think that's premature.
Donna: Oh, are you sure? Because I was told that you--
Rick: I think that you're jumping the gun, Aunt Donna.
Donna: Right. Okay.
Ridge: Rick, what are you trying to pull here?
Rick: I think you need to be asking Steffy that question.
Steffy: Okay, Rick, what's your point?
Rick: Why do you want to go to Aspen now? It's an exploratory trip. You can go anytime.
Ridge: All the leaders in winter fashion are there.
Thomas: It's the best time to get input, survey what's happening.
Rick: The only thing she'll be surveying is Liam Spencer because he'll be there.
Rick: That's the real reason, isn't it?
Thomas: Come on, Rick. You're way off base.
Steffy: Aspen has some great memories. I don't deny that. But I have given up going after men who don't want me... although I don't think my husband falls in that category, but you know what? Hey, he's got a few more months to figure that out. (Thumps hand on desk) But, um, in the meantime, I guess I'll just live my life, take care of my part of the company, and be the person I promised Liam to be. And that's what I'm doing.
Bill: Passes to the launch party, media room, et cetera, et cetera. Anything you need money-wise, charge it.
Bill: Now you-- you packed some decent clothes, right, "Skippy"? I mean, this is fashion week.
Liam: Well, yeah, I was thinking, sweatpants by day, something a little more stretchy at night--maybe spandex?
Bill: Don't knock spandex till you try it.
Bill: 'Cause back in my Studio 54 days, yeah, I rocked the spandex a couple of times. Chicks dug it.
Liam: "Dollar" Bill Spencer, "Spandex" Bill Spencer-- that must have made quite an impression.
Bill: Better than the impression you're gonna make with Hope on your arm.
Liam: Uh, really? Are we doing this again, or are you thinking you might quit while you're ahead for once?
Bill: That's exactly what I'm suggesting to you-- quit while you're ahead. The girl has psychiatric problems, Liam.
Liam: Dad, jeez!
Bill: Why would she be medicated if she weren't sick?
Liam: She's not medicating anymore.
Bill: So she's strung out?
Liam: She's not strung out. She... (Sighs) she's fine, really.
Bill: Would you consider the possibility that she's taking the drugs, like she was before, and not telling you, like she was before?
Liam: No, she wouldn't do that.
Bill: She already did do it!
Liam: She wouldn't do that again. She knows that if-- she wouldn't do it, all right? (Chuckles) She wouldn't do it.
Brooke: All right, after your last experience, I can understand why you'd rather be there than here.
Hope: It--it's not that I don't trust Steffy. It... (Scoffs) who am I kidding? Of course, I don't trust Steffy. But I trust Liam, and love that he wants me to be there with him.
Brooke: Honey, just promise me something.
Brooke: If you start feeling anxious, you'll call Dr. Barton?
Hope: Oh, I won't need to.
Brooke: How many pills do you have left from that prescription?
Hope: I don't know, honest-- you know what? I'm not even sure where they are.
Brooke: Well, maybe you should get another prescription just in case.
Hope: Yeah, Mom, um, those pills were not from Dr. Barton.
Brooke: Of course, they were.
Hope: No, the--the first two were, yeah, but... the rest were from... some online pharmacy.
Brooke: But you had to have a prescription for that, didn't you?
Hope: Yeah, you would think, but, um, I-I-I didn't.
Hope: I know. (Sighs) I know, I know. It's really--it sounds crazy, but that's why I'm done. I'm done with all of it. (Sighs) I've got to stop hiding from all the difficult things in my life-- from the press, from the way I feel about Liam, from the way I feel about myself, from promises that I've made and that I've broken. I-I just-- I don't have a lifetime to figure this out. I know that everything I want I have right in front of me, if I would just get out of my own way.
Bill: Was that the sound of a line being drawn in the sand I just heard?
Liam: (Scoffs) I'll tell you this-- Hope went through a rough patch. It's over now.
Bill: (Whistles sharply) Wow, that's a lot of miles of rough patches.
Liam: I gotta go. I'm hitching a ride on the Forrester jet.
Bill: There are some guys that I know. They have sons-- handsome, smart, charming sons. Not as handsome, smart, and charming as my kid, of course. Some of them want to be actors, some stand-up comics. Some want to launch Internet start-ups, create billion-dollar businesses. They fall flat on their faces, they get up, they try again. But the problem is their fatal flaw is that they all suck at what they do. And their fathers don't want to tell them that it's never going to happen for them. Everyone has a dream, Liam, uh, a dream that isn't meant to come true. And you can't see it, but that's what Hope is for you.
Steffy: You know, when I get back, we should, um, grab lunch, coffee, or, uh, cocktails.
Caroline: (Laughs) I'd like that.
Steffy: Hmm. How many touching and/or amusing stories will I have about my brother to entertain you with?
Caroline: Oh, no need. I'm having background check run on him. I'm--I'm kidding.
Steffy: (Chuckles) Well, I didn't say it was a bad idea. (Laughs)
Caroline: Hey, you handled the hostility in here really well.
Steffy: Well, I'm-- I'm just used to handling Rick. We go way back.
Caroline: He means well.
Steffy: No, he means to make you think so.
Rick: You ready?
Steffy: You know, um, Rick, can I talk to you for a minute?
Caroline: (Mouthing words) (Chuckles) See you.
Rick: (Clears throat) Am I in trouble, "Mom"?
Steffy: (Chuckles) Feud with my father, feud with Thomas, if you must, but do not get in my face about your sister or anything else.
Rick: Or what?
Steffy: You seem to believe that you can scratch and claw your way up to the top. It's really sad and delusional. You know, my--my father's in charge, and he's not going anywhere. You want to know another thing? I'm part owner, too, so neither am I.
Rick: I wasn't questioning your authority, just your right to interfere between my sister and Liam.
Steffy: We're still married, Rick, and everybody seems to forget that. Not me.
Hope: Mom, don't look so worried.
Brooke: Honey, I'm just not very good at parting advice. And I've loved you so hard for so many years, and I've just never really had anything useful to say.
Hope: That is not true.
Brooke: I've tried to be a good parent.
Hope: There has never been a more loving mom.
Brooke: But I've only been able to be one kind of mom, and you've been one kind of daughter, and we haven't really been that well-matched in obvious ways. But, honey, I just want you to know how much I love you and how great you are, and I love the person that you're becoming. And I want you to have everything that you want, even though I may not really understand what you want.
Hope: You are the best mom. (Chuckles) Mm.
Liam: (Knocks on door) Don't worry. I'll bring her home safe and sound.
Hope: Hi. (Laughs)
Liam: Hi, you ready to go?
Hope: Can't wait! (Sighs) We just have to pick up a few more things at home, and then we're on our way. Are you as excited as I am?
Liam: (Scoffs) Yeah!
Brooke: Have a wonderful trip.
Hope: Oh, we will. I can feel it. (Chuckles)
(Cell phone rings)
Bill: What do you have for me? And there's only one answer I want to hear.
Oliver S: It's all in place.
Bill: I expected nothing less.
Oliver S.: I still have to say, I don't want to be held responsible.
Bill: Oliver, that's the beauty of it-- neither of us will be. Hope will be responsible for her own demise, and my son will be spared a lifetime of misery. Today we strike. .
