Brooke: One more word about Hope--
Stephanie: Brooke, your daughter needs help, psychological help. She doesn't need a new husband.
Brooke: She's getting help. She's also getting Liam. They'll be married in a few weeks.
Stephanie: I don't think that's what's going to happen, and I think the two of you had better start accepting it.
Hope: (Sighs) I am counting the days until our wedding.
Liam: Italy, huh?
Hope: My mom's idea. But I think it's a really good one. Just imagine it-- the beautiful Italian countryside by the seashore, us exchanging our vows. Oh, so, um, Steffy came over for dinner last night. Ridge invited her.
Liam: (Sighs) How was that?
Hope: Good, goo-- no, it was--it was--it was good. It--it gave me a chance to apologize for everything that happened in Aspen, which I-I really needed. So she knows I moved out. She went over to your place last night, didn't she?
Steffy: Yes, Hope, I did.
Amber: Kinda cute, isn't he?
Caroline: For a guy in a dress.
Amber: He looked great in those heels the other day.
Caroline: It doesn't bother you that Rick likes to wear women's clothing?
Caroline: I mean, I'm not being judgmental. It's just...
Amber: He doesn't wear 'em all the time. He just wears 'em in private, and, uh, sometimes I even help him accessorize.
Caroline: I have to make a call. I'll be back.
Amber: Bye. Ooh, "Drumbeat red."
Amber: Oh, hi.
Amber: Can I get you, uh, some coffee or something?
Rick: Oh, no, no, no. Thank you. I'm all coffee-ed out.
Amber: Anything else?
Rick: You look great.
Amber: Thank you.
Rick: Is Caroline around?
Amber: She left a little while ago.
Rick: Took off before I could get here, right? She's avoiding me, Amber and I have no idea why.
Amber: She's not avoiding you, Rick. I mean, how could any woman in their right mind avoid you?
Rick: Oh, you're a sweetheart, but I know when I'm getting aced out.
Amber: Say that again.
Rick: I said "I know when I'm getting aced out."
Amber: No, no, no, the sweetheart part. It's been so long since anyone's called me that.
Rick: You can be sweet... if you try.
Amber: Well, I'm trying right now. Is it working?
Rick: (Chuckles) All right. All right.
Amber: Thank you.
Brooke: There's gotta be more to the story even if Liam did rip up those annulment papers, it doesn't mean he wouldn't be marrying my daughter. They're already making plans.
Stephanie: They are? Well, do you know what-- the fact that he ripped up those papers, you know what that says to me? That he's not ready to walk away from his marriage with Steffy.
Brooke: You know what it says to me? That he's willing to wait until the divorce is final. I respect him for that.
Stephanie: We'll see.
Hope: Oh, I thought that when you left my mom's house, you'd be going over to Liam's. So how'd it go?
Steffy: You really want to know?
Hope: Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah. I mean, was it just a subtle attempt at seduction, or was it a lot?
Liam: (Chuckles) Actually, she didn't even come in. We just talked at the door.
Steffy: Yeah, but, you know, you--you did invite me in.
Liam: I was raised well.
Steffy: (Mouthing words) Oh.
Hope: I gotta say, I'm impressed. I mean, I thought the second you found out that I moved out, you would be all over--
Steffy: No, no, no, no, no, this is not musical chairs or beds or whatever. No, I already told Liam, I am not stepping foot into that house unless and until I'm moving back in permanently.
Hope: Oh. Well, I-I hope that doesn't mean you'll refuse a dinner invitation once we're married.
Liam: Wow, it must have been some dinner.
Hope: Oh, it was.
Steffy: Yeah, Dad barbecued.
Hope: My mom served a great cheesecake.
Liam: Y-you guys know I'm not talking about the dinner, right? Y'all are acting differently.
Hope: Are we?
Steffy: Maybe it was our encounter on top of that mountain, hmm.
Hope: Mmm. Oh, my gosh, you knee brace, it's gone. You took it off.
Steffy: Oh, yeah, it's-- its fine. I just gotta take it easy on it.
Hope: (Sighs) Okay, well, if--if you need anything, I mean, you can ask me. I-I know it's my fault, and I'm so sorry.
Steffy: No, you know what? You apologized yesterday...
Steffy: And I know you meant it. Seriously, I'm--I'm fine.
Hope: Okay. What?
Liam: Uh, nothing. I'm just--I'm a li-- a little blown away by this whole new dynamic you guys have going on here.
Hope: Oh, well, you know, I thi--I think we've just both come to accept the inevitable.
Steffy: Only seeing it differently.
Hope: I gotta confess, I-I, uh, I asked Steffy if there was anything that brought about this lovely change in her, you know, anything you may have said or done after I left Aspen, and she said that there was.
Liam: She did, huh?
Steffy: I said I remember marrying you, and it's where we started our life together.
Hope: But, um, that's over now.
Steffy: So it seems.
Hope: Well, I-I gotta say, I understand why you didn't sign the annulment papers. I-I think that I would have done the same thing. I mean, it gives you time to get used to being single again. But now it's our moment. And it starts in Italy in just a few weeks. The wedding and a honeymoon all rolled into one.
Hope: (Giggles) I can't wait. Mmm.
Amber: You feel better?
Rick: (Sighs, groans) Maybe it's Thomas. Caroline are getting close. Did she say anything about that?
Amber: You know, they like each other a lot, Rick. I mean, I know it's a-- a disappointment, but... mmm. You know, I would do anything to make you happy, Rick. But please don't make me betray my confidences with Caroline.
Rick: I'm sorry. I guess that says it all. I just wish I knew what I was doing wrong.
Amber: You're not doing anything wrong. You are perfect just the way you are.
Rick: Hey, there.
Brooke: I have to wonder if this is another one of Steffy's tricks.
Stephanie: Oh, please. She didn't tear up the papers. He did.
Brooke: Well, maybe she worked it, played up that sore knee of hers. Then she could get on a plane and fly back here and say that Liam still wanted to marry her.
Stephanie: (Sighs) But that's exactly what she didn't do. She didn't come running back here to tell you or to tell Hope. And you know why? 'Cause she's no longer feeling insecure where Liam is concerned.
Brooke: And neither is my daughter. Have you seen her recently?
Stephanie: Honey, I know that you love her, and I know you're trying to protect her, but you're not helping matters by continuing to-- to plan this wedding, which isn't gonna happen.
Brooke: Oh, okay, I-- I am not listening to this.
Stephanie: You've got to let go of this fantasy. It's only going to hurt her.
Brooke: I'll send you an invitation...
Brooke: To the wedding. Good-bye.
Rick: Yeah, I guess I have that, uh, impact on women, you know. Here, let me help. (Sighs)
Caroline: Oh, no, I'm--I'm good.
Rick: Good enough for some chicken and waffles later? Lip-smackin' good.
Caroline: Lip-smacking. (Laughs) Right.
Rick: No, seriously, we could leave right after work. Get some dinner, hit the nightclubs. I mean, we're already dressed for it.
Caroline: You sure you don't want to change into something more comfortable?
Rick: Well, I can, if you want.
Caroline: I was-- I was just kidding. I am busy tonight.
Rick: You know, you've been busy a lot lately. It wasn't like that before. What happened, Caroline?
Rick: Did I do something to offend you?
Rick: The--the--the-- then what is it, because I'm confused. I thought we were, you know, that we were getting close.
Caroline: We were.
Rick: I don't know what it is. Is it--is it--is it another guy? Is it Thomas?
Caroline: No, it has-- it has nothing to do with another guy.
Rick: Okay, then--then-- then can you help me out here?
Caroline: Sometimes you find things out about someone, and... things change.
Rick: Like what? Did--what did you find out about me?
Caroline: Rick, please don't do this.
Rick: Seriously, did someone say something?
Caroline: They didn't have to. It was pretty obvious once I got to know you.
Rick: So it is me. You were interested in me, but... now it's not what you want.
Caroline: Yeah. Yeah, I guess that's it.
Steffy: Hope is so certain she and Liam are headed for marital bliss. And I am so certain that Liam's not gonna leave me. Am I deluding myself?
Stephanie: Do you think you are?
Steffy: No, I don't. Not since Aspen, no. I feel like we've just come to this place where we're now looking at each other and really seeing the truth. You know, everything that's happened in the past, the issues, the deception, it's all--it's all faded. And all there is left is just a strong sense of caring.
Steffy: Yeah. I just don't want, you know, Liam to be in the middle again, and... (Sighs) I know he doesn't want to hurt Hope.
Stephanie: Honey, I think you better call Liam.
Stephanie: Because Brooke was here. She heard us talking. She knows that he tore up the annulment papers.
Steffy: What? Wh--wh--what did she say?
Stephanie: Well, she didn't believe he did it. (Sighs) I think she's gone over there to see him.
Steffy: Oh, my God. I didn't want Liam to be put in this position. That's why I didn't tell Brooke or Hope. (Sighs)
(Cell phone rings) (Rings)
(Cell phone rings)
Liam: What'd you forget?
Steffy: Brooke is coming your way.
Steffy: Liam, she knows about the annulment that I signed and you tore up.
Liam: Whoa. You--you told her?
Steffy: No, no. She overhead me talking with my grandmother. Liam, I am so sorry. I-I never meant for any of this to happen. You--you really should just get out of there, just go somewhere.
Liam: No, no.
Steffy: No? How are you gonna handle this? You know she's gonna come in like a freight train.
Liam: And maybe it's for the best.
Steffy: It is?
Liam: Yeah. I'll--I'll-I'll t-- I'll talk to you later.
Stephanie: What did he say?
Steffy: Maybe it's for the best.
(Knock on door)
Brooke: I know what happened in Aspen, Liam. Is it true? Steffy signed the annulment papers, and you tore them up?
Stephanie: Liam might be right. This might be for the best.
Steffy: What did he mean by that?
Stephanie: I think he means that he isn't going to lie to Brooke. He's gonna tell her how he feels about you.
Steffy: Well, the moment of truth.
Stephanie: Yeah. He's made a decision.
Steffy: You think?
Stephanie: I think he loves you. That's why he tore up the annulment papers. Otherwise, he would have filed them and ended the marriage.
Steffy: Is that why you-- is that why you believe he did it?
Stephanie: Well, why else?
Steffy: Well, I-I... (Sighs) Out of respect, you know, for me, so I didn't have to suffer the humiliation of annulling my marriage.
Stephanie: Oh. No. No. No. This is gonna force his hand and bring about the exact opposite of what she wants to have happen.
Brooke: Why, Liam? Why did you do it?
Liam: Because, Brooke... it felt like the right thing.
Brooke: Not for Hope. Those annulment papers were the only thing standing in the way of you two getting married. You asked Steffy to sign them how many times over and over again, and she wouldn't. She held them over your head for months. And then when she finally does sign them and hand them over to you, you tore them up. I don't know what happened between you and Steffy in Aspen, but I do know why my daughter moved out. It was because she wanted her life back. And she didn't worry about leaving you and Steffy alone together in Aspen, because she trusted you. She believed in what you had. She just needed to get control of her life. And you know why? Because she gave up all of her beliefs, all of her morals just to move in with you. That is how much she loves you, Liam.
Liam: I-I know. I know that.
Brooke: Did she put it on you once she realized that it was her mistake? Did she blame you for that?
Brooke: No. No, of course she didn't. She blamed herself. That is why she moved out of your house, so she could make it right. She's a good person. She's changed. She's really growing up, and she is the person that you fell in love with. I know that you've seen a change in her, too.
Liam: I have.
Brooke: Okay. (Sighs) Well, those annulment papers would have resolved a lot of the inner conflict that was going on in Hope. And you two could have been married already.
Brooke: She sacrificed a lot, doing something she thought would make you happy. And all you had to do to repay that was to get those annulment papers. And you did, but you tore them up. Hope has been waiting for you for a long time. She deserves to know the truth. Are you going to marry her or not?
