Ridge: Well, we have breaded butterfly coconut shrimp. (Sighs)

Steffy: Don't look at me. I'm the invalid guest.

Ridge: Maybe it comes with instructions.

Steffy: Maybe Brooke just keeps them around for show. I do recall her kitchen performance at Thanksgiving.

Ridge: Hey, she's great cooking for two. Any more than that, we cater.

Steffy: Well, good thing she's not cooking for us at Hope's wedding. What? I better be invited.

Ridge: Are we sure there's going to be a wedding? You signed annulment papers, and Liam tore them up.

Steffy: (Scoffs) I'm not looking too much into that. (Sighs) No, it was a-a mark of respect for the marriage that we had and the relationship we still have.

Ridge: Seemed a little more than that, according to what you told me.

Brooke: Never fear! I brought dinner home. Oh, Steffy.

Steffy: My dad invited me for dinner. I-I hope you can stand it.

Brooke: Well, sure, yeah. There's plenty. It's just...

Hope: (Sighs) Steffy.

Steffy: Wait, you left Aspen before we did, and you're just getting home now?

Hope: Uh, no.

Steffy: It's actually really comfortable. I-I want another one for this leg.

Hope: Steffy, I am so sorry I hurt you.

Steffy: No, uh...

Hope: Can you ever forgive me?

Steffy: Hey. Hey. You--you didn't mean to hurt me.

Bill: What's your favorite word?

Liam: "Go away"?

Bill: That's two words, Boy Genius."

Katie: Okay, they got a little jostled in the car, but I think they'll be fine.

Bill: It's your favorite word in the universe. You say it every 20 minutes. Everything has to be... this word. The magazine, the clothes you wear...

Liam: You guys are coming over for dinner.

Katie: Yeah, it's tonight, right?

Bill: Sustainable. It's sustainable. I went to the trouble of finding wine, all organic.

Liam: Uh...

Bill: Clearly, you can't appreciate the effort that I went to.

Liam: Oh.

Katie: Oh, you forgot. You forgot.

Liam: I forgot.

Bill: What, you forgot we were coming to dinner?

Liam: Yeah.

Bill: Hope's not in the kitchen whipping up something cruelty-free?

Lm: Actually, um... Hope moved.

Bill: Well, you know, with--with her issues, she shouldn't be drinking anyway.

Katie: (Sighs) Liam, I'm so sorry.

Liam: Yeah.

Bill: Is this permanent? She's never coming back?

Liam: Well, I don't really want to talk about this right now.

Bill: Is this because of a certain, uh, legal document that you destroyed?

Liam: Okay, what part of "I don't want to about this" does he not get?

Katie: We're gonna go. We're gonna go. I'm gonna stick this ...

Bill: No, no, no. We're not going anywhere. I'm not gonna leave my son alone. We have no idea what, uh, that sketchy niece of yours might do if she comes back.

Katie: (Sighs)

Bill: You just said...

Caroline: (Sighs) Door was open.

Bill: Who invited you?

Katie: Bill!

Liam: I invited her.

Katie: (Sighs)

Bill: Okay. So we have a dessert and an appetizer. Now we just need a main course.

Katie: Liam kind of sort of forgot we were coming over, but you know what? Let me look at what's in the kitchen, and we'll whip something up.

Caroline: I'll help you.

Katie: (Chuckles)

Liam: Uh, you know, we've been away, so there really isn't much.

Bill: Ah, making something out of nothing that's my specialty. Some might say I'm living proof.

Liam: (Chuckles)

Hope: I really thought you were okay.

Steffy: No, that's-- that's what I thought. I said the same thing.

Hope: No, I was wrong to have left you there. I was--I was wrong in just about every way.

Steffy: Okay, if we start comparing wrong scores, my innocent victimhood would go right out the window. I take it you're here for dinner?

Hope: Um... no, I-I'm moving back in.

Steffy: I see.

Brooke: We don't have to talk about this right now, do we?

Hope: Oh, no, it's--we don't have to keep it a secret. It's fine.

Ridge: Did Liam ask you to leave?

Hope: No. It was my idea, my decision.

Bill: So you told Hope that Steffy signed the annulment and you tore it up?

Liam: No.

Bill: You told Hope that you kissed Steffy?

Liam: No.

Bill: Here I thought I was supposed to be the conniving one.

Liam: Don't judge me. It--it didn't come up, okay? There was no reason.

Bill: I sure you're right.

Liam: You have no idea what that whole experience did to her. I mean, those reporters were animals. It was crazy, and by the way, don't give me the bull about how it comes with the territory, cause they were saying things that no woman should ever have to hear. I mean, what--what is this, "The Scarlet Letter"? What century are we living in?

Bill: Well, it's disheartening, of course, but after what happened... Caroline. (Sighs)

Liam: Hey.

Bill: There's a glass of wine for you.

Caroline: Ah, thank you. Yes. It was absolutely exhausting turning up the heat underneath that pasta water.

Liam: (Chuckles) “After what happened," what? Dad, she either knows now, or she's gonna figure it out real quick.

Bill: All right, well, I'm just suggesting that Hope really had no choice but to leave, being that you asked her to do so.

Liam: I didn't ask her to do so.

Katie: You didn't want her to leave?

Liam: (Scoffs)

Bill: Wait a second. (Laughs) Wait--wait--wait a minute. Are you telling me that that whack job dumped you again?

Liam: Hey.

Caroline: I am sure that that is not how it happened.

Bill: What do you know about it?

Caroline: Nothing. I just--considering the circumstances, this is what's best for the relationship.

Liam: Thank you.

Katie: Does anyone want a dolma? They're really--

Bill: So how does this, uh, "Best for all concerned" thing work, pray tell?

Caroline: Well, I am just guessing here, but I think that what Hope was experiencing was a conflict between the values that she so publically embraced and the life that she was living.

Liam: See, that's right. That's exactly right.

Caroline: But then again, it is none of my business.

Liam: Caroline, I don't think Hope would mind one bit being your business. And before you ask, Dad, the wedding is still on.

Bill: Not until your divorce is final. Cheers.

Katie: They're really good, and they're good for you, too.

Hope: (Sighs) Here you go.

Steffy: Oh, thank you.

Hope: Yeah. (Sighs) I made some really bad decisions. (Scoffs) Say, that's an understatement, actually.

Steffy: You know what? You don't have to explain it to me.

Hope: No, I do, because one of. (Sighs) Bad decisions. I was... behaving as if your marriage would end any day. I should not have pushed that on you. It was your decision.

Steffy: Look, I don't blame you for wanting what you wanted.

Hope: I was in denial. You know, I-I wasn't okay with the way I was living my life, so I told myself that, in day or so, I wouldn't be.

Steffy: You know what I think?

Hope: Hmm?

Steffy: I think we're just so focused on the technicalities-- whose name is on the dotted line with Liam.

Hope: I agree.

Steffy: It's about the quality of the relationship that really matters.

Hope: Yep. And I know that this is the best thing for Liam and me. (Sighs) I just--I-I can't feel right about living with Liam when he's still married to you. And that is not your problem to fix. It's mine.

Steffy: You seem different. You seem, like better.

Hope: Well... (Inhales sharply) If Liam can accept me as... (Sighs) An imperfect person, than I should be able to do the same, right? Okay, I'm gonna ask you something, and it may be weird, but... what would you think about coming to our wedding. I think Liam would like it if you did. (Sighs)

Steffy: The wedding's still on?

Hope: Well, yeah, o-once the divorce is final in a couple weeks.

Steffy: You... (Inhales sharply) Let's not set anything in stone u-until your plans are made.

Hope: We're making them now.

Steffy: (Sighs)

Ridge: Who wants white meat? Who wants dark meat?

Brooke: Girls... (Sighs) Everything's just about ready.

Steffy: Ooh, good.

Hope: Okay. (Sighs)

Bill: It seems Liam has become an even more understanding person.

Katie: Only you could make that sound like a criticism.

Bill: We all grow and mature-- isn't that what people say? Well, I am simply suggesting that, uh, maybe Liam has relaxed his high standards.

Liam: Whoa, what? What--how do my standards have to do with this?

Bill: Well, didn't Hope used to be the paragon of perfection, the possessor of every possible virtue, the very pinnacle--

Liam: Dad what is your point?

Bill: That maybe now you can see your not-yet-ex-wife's transgressions in an equally forgiving light.

Katie: Oh, God. Can we change the channel? I think I've heard this song before.

Liam: Dad, you know, I'm not mad at Steffy, if that is what you're thinking.

Bill: Of course. You're not mad at Steffy. Why would you be mad at Steffy? Everything Steffy did was out of her love for you.

Katie: (Scoffs)

Bill: The havoc that Hope has reeked in your life...

Liam: No.

Bill: A result of her self-righteous, crazy beliefs.

Caroline: Uncle Bill! (Laughs) Hold on a second. What--what crazy beliefs I mean, does anyone act on anything else?

Bill: If the beliefs make you do crazy things then they're crazy beliefs.

Caroline: Yes, things like the crusades and the civil war, crazy things like this...

Katie: Oh, my gosh.

Caroline: What?

Katie: Is that a tattoo?

Caroline: Yes. My aunt died of cancer, and I am named after her, and I believed in honoring her memory and her struggle. Sorry, I forget that that it sometimes a conversation killer.

Liam: (Laughs) No. No.

Katie: No. Not at all. It just reminds me of how much I want to now you better. I hope you'll make some more time to spend with Bill and me.

Caroline: (Chuckles)

Hope: (Clears throat)

Steffy: Brooke, everything is quite delicious. Thank you.

Brooke: Thank you. I'm glad you're enjoying it.

Hope: (Sighs)

Brooke: I really think we need to talk about doing some research about what kinds of foods and what chefs are available in Italy.

Steffy: Well, can't you eat just about anything in Italy?

Ridge: I don't think this is the time to do menu planning.

Steffy: When are you going?

Hope: (Clears throat) The wedding.

Steffy: Yours?

Ridge: There's still some thighs and breasts. Anybody want some more?

Steffy: You know any-- any place in particular?

Hope: Um, I-it's a really beautiful city that, uh, Mom knows about. It's in the south of Italy somewhere. Uh, you know, we haven't talked too much about it.

Brooke: I don't think we should mention the name quite yet.

Hope: Mm-hmm.

Steffy: Well, does Liam know where you're going?

Hope: Uh, yeah, I talked to him about it.

Steffy: And does he like the idea of Italy?

Hope: Uh, yeah. Yeah. Uh, we didn't get into too many details. You know, we were dealing with other things, so...

Steffy: Well, you have all sorts of time to plan.

Brooke: Mm, no, not really. (Sighs)

Steffy: Sometimes it's best not to make too many plans.

Brooke: Hmm.

Katie: I'm so happy you're here, you know, that you're-- you're part of the fold. More Spencers--I love that...

Liam: (Chuckles)

Katie: I'm so happy that you're staying in Los Angeles.

Caroline: Oh, me, too. I didn't think I was gonna like it here that much, but I do. And having a chance to get to know you...

Katie: (Chuckles)

Caroline: And...

Liam: (Chuckles)

Caroline: And my job-- wait, you guys get along with the Forresters, right?

Bill: No.

Liam: Some of us.

Katie: Of course, we do.

Caroline: (Laughs)

Katie: You know, that wasn't real helpful, probably.

Caroline: (Laughs)

Liam: (Clears throat)

Caroline: So I take it that there's a split opinion of Hope and Steffy?

Bill: Uh...

Liam: What? I am shocked that you'd come to that conclusion, given my father's ambiguity. Sorry you got dragged into it.

Caroline: No, don't be! It makes me feel like family.

Bill: We're not gonna get into this right now. We're having a pleasant family evening. I have to get up and go finish off your pasta. You?

Katie: It needs a little more time to simmer. Do you want to see the rest of the house?

Caroline: Yes, I would love to.

Katie: All right, let me give you a tour.

Caroline: All right.

Bill: Well, you really stepped in it this time, didn't you? You're feeling the noose tighten around your neck.

Liam: Dad.

Bill: You don't want to marry the girl. You could have filed those annulment papers Hope knows nothing about and been married by now.

Liam: Yeah, I could have.

Bill: It's not what you want, Son, and you have to tell her.

Liam: Dad, listen. Listen I have never experienced anything in my life...

Bill: (Sighs)

Liam: Like what I have with Hope. Those moments were the best moments of my life.

Bill: I know those feelings. I was young once. I had them with your mother. Now I have them with Katie. But life... life is about more than moments, Liam... It's about embracing the whole unknown future and knowing that you are equal to it, because you have a partner who can stand up to anything. Hope is simply not together. Maybe some day she will be, but maybe she won't. Do you really want to commit yourself to the girl before you know for sure?

Hope: Yeah.

Brooke: So would anybody like dessert?

Steffy: Oh, you know what? I'm gonna get going, actually.

Ridge: No. Come on. Want, uh, coffee, tea, or brandy or something?

Steffy: Oh, you know what, Brooke? Just relax. I can--I can take this inside.

Brooke: No, are you sure?

Steffy: Yeah, don't even worry about it.

Brooke: Oh, thank you. So is everything okay?

Steffy: Mm-hm yeah, I just--I just...

Brooke: (Clears throat)

Hope: Look, I don't think that we should be talking about wedding plans in front of Steffy.

Brooke: I-I know. (Sighs)

Hope: I-I think it's a little insensitive.

Brooke: Sorry. I don't know what I was thinking.

Hope: (Clears her throat)

Brooke: It didn't seem to bother her, though.

Hope: True. Will you excuse me for a minute? (Clears throat)

Brooke: You're awfully quiet over there. Do you have anything to add to this conversation about Hope's wedding? We don't have six months to plan.

Ridge: Where does the time go?

Brooke: (Sighs) There's something conspicuously missing from this conversation. Are you going to design a gown for Hope?

Ridge: Logan.

Brooke: I know that you need to think about Steffy and her feelings, but Hope is your daughter, too, in every way that counts. And I know right now she's not feeling that.

Ridge: Design a gown, huh? And what do you think that would say to Steffy? "I appreciate, Steffy, that you're working on saving your marriage, but in the meantime, I'm going to design a beautiful gown for the young lady who wants to destroy all that for you." I love both of our daughters, but something tell me that Liam is gonna stick with it with Steffy. They're already reconnecting. It's gonna happen soon. Who knows? Maybe something's already happened. And when Hope finally finds out... (Sighs)

Hope: Hey, um. It seems like you had something on your mind tonight.

Steffy: It's a trick to keep people from saying I'm empty-headed.

Hope: Mm, no, I get the feeling that there's something you want to say to me.

Steffy: Uh, can you give me a clue about what?

Hope: Okay, we don't need to play this game. I don't think you believe that I'm actually having a wedding.

Steffy: Okay. (Sighs) Okay, maybe I'm deluded. Maybe I'm in denial. Honestly, why does it matter hmm?

Hope: Steffy, has Liam said anything to make you believe that he's changed his mind about marrying me?

Steffy: (Laughs)

Hope: Look, Steffy, who of us wants a husband with divided feelings. We had that with our mothers. We know what it can do. We know the damage it can cause.

Steffy: That's true.

Hope: Has Liam done or said anything to encourage you to think that his future is with you instead of me? Come on, out with it.

Steffy: (Sighs)

Hope: There's nothing. If there were, you'd be saying something about it. Come on, Steffy, just give this up.

Steffy: All right. All right. Fine. Fine. All right. All right. Since you asked... something... has happened between my husband and me.
