Steffy: You know where I stand. Time is running out. It's either you stop it or our marriage ends. It's up to you, Liam.

Hope: I was not expecting to talk about this today.

Dr. Barton: I think it's important. You know, estrangement by a parent leaves a mark.

Hope: Yeah, that whole story it just, you know, it's-- it's not something that I like to think about. It's just, um, my dad, he was married to my half-sister. But I'm sure you already know that.

Dr. Barton: Your mom told me.

Hope: I know my mom will always regret what happened.

Dr. Barton: Do you question your mother's love for you?

Hope: No, I-I don't. It's just--it's just-- it's weird to--to think about. It's weird. (Sighs) I mean, my mom and Deacon-- you know, he was married to Bridget. Do I wish that I had gotten to know my dad? Yes. He's my dad. (Sighs) I just can't help wondering why he never wanted anything to do with me.

Alison: You knew all this.

Bill: I know everything that's worth knowing about Hope Logan. (Sighs) I also know I don't want her marrying my son. And her daddy, Deacon Sharpe-- he's the key.

Brooke: I heard you had a special evening last night.

Katie: You've been talking to Donna.

Brooke: It's not a secret, is it? You love your husband, and you wanted to do something romantic for him.

Katie: Yeah, it's a... little bit more complicated than that. (Sighs)

Brooke: Really? What?

Katie: I'm pregnant. (Chuckles)

Brooke: You are?

Katie: Yeah. Aren't you going to congratulate me? (Chuckles)

Brooke: (Scoffs) Wow. Yes, of course.

Katie: (Sighs)

Brooke: (Sighs) It's just... w-what did your doctor say?

Katie: Well, she gave me some vitamins, and she gave me some information about--

Brooke: No. No. What did she say about your condition? You had a heart transplant. You're not supposed to get pregnant.

Steffy: I don't think you want our marriage to end.

Liam: (Sighs)

Steffy: But it's out of my hands. So whatever happens next is up to you. That's a big dilemma. I'm glad I'm not in your shoes, Sucker.

Liam: (Scoffs) (Chuckles) Well, aren't you a paragon of empathy?

Steffy: Score one for me.

Liam: (Chuckles) Yeah.

Steffy: (Laughs)

Liam: Really, though, Steffy, you're being exceptionally cool.

Steffy: You're a grown man. Only you can decide how you're going to spend the rest of your life.

Liam: Gosh, all up to me, huh? Even my dad's learning to back off. What am I gonna do?

Hope: I wish I could see my dad, find out why he completely abandoned me. But, you know, I know that things are really messed up between him and my mom and Bridget, but... didn't he care at all? I mean, I'm his daughter. (Sighs)

Dr. Barton: And how does that make you feel?

Hope: Rejected. I feel rejected, and I can't help but wonder, you know, all the problems that I've had with... (Sighs) The press and all the rejection and negativity that surrounded me moving in with Liam-- I can't help but wonder if maybe I would have handled it differently had he not disappeared from my life the way he did.

Dr. Barton: Hope, that is incredibly perceptive.

Hope: Well, there's nothing I can do about it.

Alison: It's a tough situation.

Bill: You bet it is-- one my son will inherit if he marries that girl.

Katie: I have an appointment scheduled with my cardiologist. Okay, great, I will swing by and pick up my test results on my way. Thank you, Doctor. (Sighs) It's gonna be fine.

Brooke: I want to go to that appointment with you.

Katie: My protective sister. Mom would be proud.

Brooke: We lost our mother. I don't want to lose you.

Katie: You're not gonna lose me. I'm gonna deliver a healthy baby.

Brooke: Are you sure Bill's okay with this?

Katie: It--it took some convincing. (Sighs)

Brooke: That's because he's worried about you.

Katie: Who would have ever thought that Bill would be the protective family man?

Brooke: (Scoffs) He's too protective of Liam. That's for sure.

Katie: I agree.

Brooke: Mm.

Katie: How are the wedding plans coming?

Brooke: Amazing. Let me show you something.

Katie: Puglia-- the boot of Italy.

Brooke: (Chuckles) Yes, Southern Italy. It's truly exquisite. It's so quiet and serene, undiscovered by Americans, press...

Katie: Mm.

Brooke: Alberobello and Polignano a Mare-- Ridge and have been there once. I know the perfect place for them to get married. And Father Fontana, he's gonna marry them.

Katie: Oh, my gosh.

Brooke: (Giggles)

Katie: It looks so beautiful! (Sighs) Hope and Liam must be so excited.

Brooke: (Sighs)

Katie: Something wrong?

Brooke: Uh... (Sighs) Liam's feeling a little pressure.

Katie: From his father, I know.

Brooke: What you don't know is that Steffy signed those annulment papers.

Katie: What? When?

Brooke: When they were in Aspen.

Katie: That doesn't make any sense.

Brooke: And Liam tore them up. (Sighs)

Katie: Why would he do something like that?

Brooke: Yes, I know. That is the question. (Sighs) Liam didn't want to disrespect their marriage or disrespect Steffy, and he thought if he accepted those annulment papers, that's exactly what he would be doing.

Katie: How did Hope react?

Brooke: We didn't tell her. Liam and I thought it was better if she didn't know.

Katie: But he's not having second thoughts?

Brooke: No, he's completely committed to Hope. And they're going to get married just as soon as the divorce is final.

Katie: Which is soon.

Brooke: Right. (Sighs) That's why I'm not so worried. Really, I think everything's gonna work out just fine.

Katie: You know what? I'm gonna take off. There's someone I need to see.

Brooke: Your husband, I hope.

Katie: No. (Sighs) Someone else.

Liam: So I gotta go to work.

Steffy: Yeah. Yeah. Uh, me, too.

Liam: Yeah. (Clears throat)

Steffy: Liam... whatever happens, I'll survive.

Liam: I know. I know you would.

Steffy: You know, I'm not gonna beg you to... (Inhales sharply) Seduce you.

Liam: (Chuckles)

Steffy: But whatever happens, I am never gonna stop loving you. (Sighs)

(Door closes)

Dr. Barton: Well, I think, uh, you've made some very real progress.

Hope: Really?

Dr. Barton: Yes. You need some resolution about your father, and you're on the right track.

Hope: Um... I don't want to contact him.

Dr. Barton: Okay.

Hope: Okay? If anything, I-I kind of feel like he should be the one to reach out to me. But, you know, that's not gonna happen, so...

Dr. Barton: Well, I understand that you wanted him to make the first move I mean, I'm sure there were a lot of holidays and birthdays that were very painful, and--and now you have a wedding coming up. But, Hope, you can reach out to him first. It's not uncommon. And after all these years, I'm sure he wonders whether you even want to hear from him.

Hope: I don't even remember him. You know, I think-- I think... (Sighs) That it would be best if I just got some closure and then moved on.

Dr. Barton: Mm-hmm.

Hope: You know, I am-- I'm planning a wedding; the last thing that I should be stressing about right now is daddy issues.

Dr. Barton: Okay, well, you definitely need closure, and, uh, that's what we'll work towards.

Hope: Okay.

Dr. Barton: Are you excited about your wedding?

Hope: Are you kidding? Yeah!

Dr. Barton: (Laughs)

Hope: (Laughs) I'm--I am. I'm--I'm so eager to start my life with Liam.

Dr. Barton: Aw.

Hope: It's what we both want, and it's almost here. And, I mean, I'm different, right? You can tell I've changed and--and... I'm just so happy. In a few weeks, I will be Liam's wife. (Sighs)

Bill: Not if I can help it.

Alison: You really don't like this girl.

Bill: It's not that I don't like her. You know what? That--that--that's beside the point. She is a mess. She's got to get her act together. And for her sake, I hope she does.

Alison: But you don't want her marrying your son.

Bill: Liam has to see Hope for what she is-- a young troubled girl who has no business thinking about a marriage. And that's were this clown comes in. I need more information, Alison. I need you find out everything there is to know about Mr. Sharpe.

(Knock on door)

Bill: Come in.

Liam: Busy?

Bill: Get in here.

Liam: All right, just so you know, I edited your "Letter from the publisher" and--

Bill: I'm thrilled. Where have you been all day? (Sighs)

Liam: I was here this morning.

Bill: You were in your office for a few minutes with Hope, and then you disappeared. You went to see Steffy, didn't you?

Liam: Uh, uh, we had some ad copy to go over, so...

Bill: Ad copy? Really when are you gonna pull the trigger? Time is running out. You're torn between two women.

Liam: (Sighs)

Bill: You've got to make a decision.

Liam: Okay, I don't need to hear this right now.

Bill: You know, I thought when Hope moved out, you would have learned something.

Liam: Yeah, I did-- that she has integrity.

Bill: Oh, it's got nothing to do with integrity. She's using sex as a weapon.

Liam: What?!

Bill: That is what young, inexperienced girls do.

Liam: Oh, come on.

Bill: That's the game they play.

Liam: (Sighs)

Bill: Do you really want to be pulled into that? Do you want to teach Hope how to be in a mature relationship with a man? You didn't have to do that with Steffy, did you?

Liam: Dad, Dad, you can't compare Hope and Steffy.

Bill: Bingo! Hope has issues. Do you have any idea how deep those run, how much they've affected her?

Liam: I'll be in my office.

Bill: I asked you a question.

Liam: Oh, I can't hear you!

Bill: Well, you better start hearing me...

(Door closes)

Bill: Because I'm trying to give you some good advice! Aah!

(Door slams)

Steffy: Katie. (Sighs) I didn't hear you knock.

Katie: That's because I didn't.

Steffy: Okay.

Katie: So why did you do it?

Steffy: Let's see. What could it be this time, hmm?

Katie: The annulment papers-- why did you sign them?

Steffy: You're upset about that?

Katie: No! No, I'm not upset. I'm just curious. I mean it seemed to be nonnegotiable. How many times did Hope and Liam ask you to sign those papers, and you wouldn't?

Steffy: Actually, Liam only asked me once, and he understood that I had trouble with it.

Katie: So you changed your mind?

Steffy: Obviously.

Katie: Why?

Steffy: I think there's more to this than idle curiosity. I assume you talked to Brooke. She told you I signed the annulment papers and Liam tore 'em up.

Katie: Yeah, I'm curious about that, too, but I'll discuss it with Liam.

Steffy: Liam is really busy. It's his life. Itís his choice. And the reason why I signed those annulment papers was to make his life easier.

Katie: Mm. I don't think so. I don't think that's why you signed them at all. I think you were hoping for the opposite reaction. You did it to win him back.

[Steffy remembering]

Liam: (Sighs)

Steffy: (Laughs)

Liam: (Sighs)

Liam: (Clears throat) (Sighs)

(Knock on door)

Hope: What's that look for?

Steffy: Let me get this straight. You think I signed the annulment papers to win Liam back?

Katie: Well, it makes sense I mean, you're desperate. Time is running out. Liam is gonna marry Hope the minute your divorce is final. So you play the one card you have left in your hand.

Steffy: (Sighs)

Katie: You made the ultimate sacrifice for the man you love. And I've Liam was very moved. I'm sure you were crying.

Steffy: (Scoffs)

Katie: And being the sensitive person that he is, he rips up the annulment papers. I'm sure you kissed him after that. Did you sleep with him, too?

Steffy: If I did, I certainly wouldn't tell you. There's just one problem to your fascinating story-- what I would have done next.

Katie: You told Brooke.

Steffy: No. Brooke overheard me talking with my grandmother. And I wouldn't have said anything to Hope. I can't even imagine her reaction. I discouraged everyone from telling her. Now my question is... why wouldn't I spread the word all over town? Because I don't want it to end that way. I want Liam to love me for who I am. And believe it or not, Katie, I'm not some manipulative bitch.

Katie: (Sighs)

Steffy: Hope's a good person, and Liam might end up marrying her, but I'm hoping he doesn't.

Katie: Well, if everything you say is true, it's an interesting strategy. But there will be a marriage in Italy.

Alison: Bad news, Bill. You may have to consider plan "B."

Bill: Why's that?

Alison: Deacon Sharpe's in jail. Back to the drawing board.

Bill: Alison, you disappoint me. I would think you'd know me better by now. There's nothing I can't find a way of changing.

Alison: Even a prison sentence?

Bill: Nothing. Deacon Sharpe is the key. I owe it to my son to keep him from making the biggest mistake of his life. And a jail cell isn't going to stop me.

Hope: Mm. Where did that come from?

Liam: My lips to yours. (Laughs)

Hope: (Laughs)

Liam: How did your appointment with the shrink go?

Hope: Very helpful.

Liam: That's good to hear.

Hope: Yeah. We, uh... (Inhales sharply) We got into some unexpected territory today that -I honestly don't think I would like to revisit in the future, but for today, it was good. It was liberating. All the things that have bothered me my whole life I am putting behind me.

Liam: I'm glad.

Hope: Me, too. (Sighs) Because now I can give you all of me. (Sighs) Thank you for waiting. Thank you for believing in me.

Liam: (Sighs)

Hope: I am all yours. (Chuckles)

Liam: (Chuckles)
