(Church bells ringing)

Liam: (Sighs)

Eric: Correct me if I'm wrong, but this is a big day for Hope, isn't it?

Brooke: Yes, it is.

Eric: Yeah.

Brooke: And as of midnight tonight, Steffy and Liam are divorced.

Eric: She's been through a lot.

Brooke: I asked Ridge if he could design her wedding gown, and he said he couldn't.

Eric: Well, he's loyal to Steffy.

Brooke: Yes, and she is his daughter, so I do understand that. But Ridge is the only father Hope's ever known. And I keep getting this feeling that she's getting lost in everybody's concern for Steffy.

(Knock on door)

Steffy: Come in.

Stephanie: Hi.

Steffy: Hey. (Groans) Some of my favorites. Oh.

Stephanie: Mwah!

Taylor: Mm, we wanted to check on you.

Steffy: Oh.

Taylor: Mm. Look who's here.

Steffy: Hey, Dad.

Ridge: Your mom told me that you decided to stay here last night I'm very happy about that.

Steffy: Uh, yeah. Um, I didn't really want to be alone. Rumor has it, it's the last day of my marriage.

Stephanie: Don't listen to rumors.

Steffy: I'm right there with you. (Chuckles) I'm just waiting for Liam to call to, you know, stop the whole divorce. Okay, check this out. I, uh, I actually put a timer on my phone, and you will hear this at midnight.

(Church bells ringing)

Steffy: Wedding bells. I'm hoping they'll, uh, chime in a new start for Liam and me.

(Church bells ringing)


(Church bells ringing)

Liam: You're a nut.

(Ringing stops)

Steffy: Kind of inspired, huh? The bells will chime either way.

(Present time)

Liam: (Inhales sharply) (Sighs)

Bill: Hey, kid.

Liam: You know I took the afternoon off for a reason, right?

Bill: Relax. I won't be here long.

Liam: Yeah, just long enough to tell me what you want me to do.

Bill: What I want if for you to be happy. See, look, happy. I want you to have a good life.

Liam: Uh, yeah, I know, and if I marry Hope, you think I won't.

Bill: I know you won't. I guarantee you won't. Liam, look, it's do-or-die time. Unless you put a stop to it, as of midnight tonight, Steffy will no longer be your wife. Now can you look me in the eye and tell me that's what you really want?

Eric: Well, I don't suppose there's any way that I could possibly help.

Brooke: (Sighs) Would you consider helping with her wedding dress?

Eric: A wed--a wedding dress? Yes, of course. Of course.

Brooke: (Giggles) Oh, thank goodness.

Eric: Of course.

Brooke: Oh, thank you. I so appreciate it. I know there isn't a lot of time.

Eric: Oh, there's plenty of gowns for her to pick from.

Brooke: (Sighs)

Eric: The new wedding collection just finished and, uh, there's the gown I designed for her last fall before this whole saga began so...

Brooke: Yes, that's right. That is perfect. Okay. Well, thank you. You're a doll.

Eric: Good.

Brooke: I can't help but feel that everybody's just ganging up on Hope. And Bill, he's the worst.

Eric: Well, there's no surprise there. He's been lobbying against Hope from the very beginning.

Brooke: Yeah. And Ridge isn't calling him out on it. I mean, they all seem like they're on the same side. Stephanie, Taylor, Ridge-- they're all a part of team Steffy. (Sighs)

Steffy: Maybe I'm crazy for believing it's possible but I don't care. I just have this indescribable feeling that Liam's gonna call off the divorce.

Taylor: (Sighs) Well, I hope you're right.

Stephanie: So do I.

Ridge: Why don't I save us all the trouble and talk to Liam myself?

Steffy: What? Dad, don't.

Stephanie: Oh.

Ridge: He's had plenty of time to figure this out, sweetheart. He needs to make a decision, and he needs to make it now.

Liam: You know, you're a little late. My divorce is final at midnight.

Bill: Unless you stop it.

Liam: I'm marrying Hope soon, Dad.

Bill: Not if you're still married to Steffy.

Liam: Dad, come on! You are not making this any easier on me.

Bill: Oh, why do you think it's so hard? Because you don't want to let Steffy go. Liam, if you were so in love with Hope, you wouldn't be pacing around, sweating what's going down at midnight. You would have already done it.

Liam: Yeah, well, you know, you should probably get back to work so...

Bill: Look at me. Look at me.

Liam: (Sighs)

Bill: If you go through with this divorce and you marry Hope... (Sighs) it could get ugly, and I don't want that.  I love you, Liam. You have a decision to make. Make the right one.

Brooke: Hope is getting married. I mean, this should be a wonderful, exciting time in her life.

Eric: It is, isn't it...

Brooke: (Sighs)

Eric: Or does this thing with Ridge have her upset?

Brooke: Worse. She's been talking about Deacon.

Eric: What?

Brooke: She even mentioned wanting him to walk her down the aisle.

Eric: No. My God, no. Absolutely not. What is she thinking of? I mean is the last thing she needs in her life right now.

Brooke: I know. I don't want him here. I don't want him anywhere near her ever.

Eric: I-I agree. He's dangerous.

Brooke: I can't even let myself think about what could happen.

Hope: Hey, Mom.

Brooke: Hi, honey.

Hope: Hi, Eric.

Brooke: Wow. (Giggles) Just a few short hours, right?

Hope: (Chuckles) Oh, why? Is something happening at midnight?

Brooke: Oh. (Chuckles)

Eric: I'm proud of the way you handled yourself.

Hope: Thank you a few missteps... (Sighs) here and there, but it really helped me see that I needed to get back to my values-- you know, what Hope for the Future's really about. Liam and I are back on track... (Sighs) and before we know it, we'll be married in Italy.

Brooke: That's right.

Hope: (Chuckles)

Brooke: And it's going to be a spectacular event. And all the people who love you and support you will be there.

Steffy: My marriage is supposed to end at midnight I can't even fathom it. I can't even believe Liam would let the clock run out.

Stephanie: Honey, he tore up those annulment papers, didn't he?

(Cell phone alert chimes)

Steffy: (Sighs) That's Thomas. He's checking up on me.

Taylor: Oh, that is so sweet of your brother.

Steffy: Yeah.

Stephanie: Yes, but she was hoping it was Liam.

Taylor: Well, I think we should all be prepared.

Steffy: For the worst. That's just so rational.

Taylor: It's my job.

Steffy: Well, that's not a fun job.

Taylor: (Chuckles)

Steffy: Grandma and I, we chose to be utterly, blissfully irrational.

Stephanie: Mm-hmm.

Steffy: And we believe that the phone's gonna ring.

Taylor: (Sighs) And what if it doesn't?

Steffy: (Clicks tongue)

Stephanie: (Sighs)

Steffy: Then I'll be really sad. But life will go on. It just wouldn't be the same without him.

(Touch tones beeping)

Ridge: Got a minute?

Liam: Uh, yeah. Uh, yeah, come on in.

Ridge: Steffy's had some good times in this place... (Sighs) though I'm sure Hope has, too.

Liam: Yeah. It's, um... it's a great house.

Ridge: Oh, Liam, I know this isn't easy.

Liam: No, isn't, for anyone.

Ridge: We've talked about this before. I can relate to what you're going through.  I know what it's like being in love with two amazing women, but you've got to get a handle on it.

Liam: I know.

Ridge: You've got to get it figured out, Liam. My entire family is being affected by the decisions you make or don't make. The clock is ticking. The waiting period is over tonight. You need to get some backbone, Liam. Make a decision.

Ridge:  You still have deep feelings for Steffy. I'm aware of what happened in Aspen. You tore up the annulment papers and you kissed her.

Liam: I'd prefer that Hope doesn't know about that.

Ridge: You have to tell Hope how you're feeling, Liam. You have to make a commitment to one woman. You can't just keep them both hanging on like that. It's not fair.

Liam: You're right I know. You're right. I gotta talk to Steffy and Hope. (Sighs)

Ridge: You're not gonna give me any idea at all?

Liam: No. (Chuckles) No. No. I'll take it from here, Ridge. Thank you.

Ridge: Don't wait, my friend. Do it now.

Eric: Well, let me know if there's anything there that you like.

Hope: These are your-- these are your wedding gowns. They're gorgeous.

Eric: Mm-hmm. Yeah.

Brooke: Hmm.

Hope: This one looks a lot like the one that you designed for me when, uh, Liam and I first got engaged.

Eric: Mm-hmm. A little tweak here and there, yeah.

Hope: I-I really--I love what you did with it.

Eric: Thank you. If you don't want to wear that one there are plenty of others to choose from.

Hope: (Sighs) Are you offering me one of your wedding gowns?

Eric: Yes.

Hope: (Giggles) Thank you. (Sighs) I would be... are you sure? (Sighs)

Eric: (Chuckles) Absolutely. Absolutely.

Hope: Are you sure? Are you sure? Oh, my gosh.

Eric: Yes.

Hope: Thank you so much.

Eric: Come here.

Hope: Thank you.

Eric: (Chuckles)

("Arms" by Christina Perri playing)

I never thought that you would be the to hold my heart but you came around and you knocked me off the ground from the start

Liam: Will you marry me, Steffy?

("Arms" by Christina Perri playing)

You put your arms around me and I believed that it's easier for you to let me go you put your arms around me and I'm home how many times will you let me change my mind and turn around?

Steffy: You made this cowgirl very happy.

("Arms" by Christina Perri playing)

I can't decide if I'll let you save my life or if I'll drown

Steffy: Marry me.

("Arms" by Christina Perri playing)

I hope that you see right through my walls I hope that you catch me 'cause I'm already falling I'll never let a love get so close you put your arms around me and I'm home

(Touch tones beeping)

Liam: I want to see you. Can we meet at the house?

Steffy: Yes. I'll--I'll be right there.

Stephanie: Was that a scream of joy or pain?

Steffy: You know what? I-I really don't know. I think I'm having an out-of-body experience. He called. He called. He wants me to cover over.

Stephanie: What did he say?

Steffy: He said he wants to see me. Grandma, you were right about everything--that he was gonna call me and that he loves me.

Stephanie: Well, of course he loves you. What's not to love?

Steffy: Mm. Okay. How do I look?

Stephanie: Beautiful.

Steffy: You always say the right thing.

Stephanie: I know.

Steffy: All right, I think I got everything.

Stephanie: Get going! Don't take so long!

Steffy: Okay. I'm going. I'm going! I'm going! Okay.

Stephanie: (Chuckles) Good luck.

Steffy: Oh, Grandma.

Stephanie: What?

Steffy: Thank you. Thank you so much.

Stephanie: Text me.

Steffy: I will! I will!

Stephanie: (Inhales sharply) (Sighs)

Hope: (Sighs) So generous of Eric to let me choose one of his designs.

Brooke: He's happy to do it, sweetheart.

Hope: Yeah, it means a lot, especially since Ridge doesn't feel comfortable designing my gown.

Brooke: He's in a tough position.

Hope: No, I get it. He's--he's Steffy's dad, not mine. You know, but if he feels so uncomfortable about a dress, how is he gonna walk me down the aisle?

Brooke: He will. Of course, he will.

Hope: It's not his responsibility. I'm not his real daughter.

Brooke: Honey, you are a daughter to him. You know that.

Hope: Sometimes it's really hard not to have a dad. I mean, you... (Sighs) you don't let yourself think about it too much, but then... something so special rolls around... like your wedding. (Sniffles) And you really wish that he was there.

Brooke: I'm sorry. I'm sorry that you're having those feelings. I am.

Hope: (Sniffles)

Brooke: I do understand, sweetheart. It's just that everybody there loves you so much and adores you, and nobody more than me. And you are gonna have a beautiful wedding in a magical setting.

Hope: Mm-hmm.

Brooke: Just don't let anything interfere with your happiness, okay?

Hope: Mm-hmm. Okay. (Sniffles) (Sighs)

Taylor: Where's Steffy?

Stephanie: Liam called.

Taylor: What did he say?

Stephanie: He said to come over and see him right away.

Taylor: Oh, Stephanie. Oh, please let this go well.

Stephanie: (Laughs) From your lips to God's ear.

Taylor: (Sighs)

(Door opens)

Ridge: Hey, Logan.

Brooke: Hey, honey.

(Door closes)

Brooke: Where have you been?

Ridge: Went over to Taylor's to check on Steffy.

Brooke: Still hoping Liam will change his mind about the divorce?

Ridge: He needs to make a decision here.

Brooke: He already has.

Ridge: Are you sure?

Brooke: Yes, I'm sure.

Ridge: Well, he better inform the girls, because he can't keep stringing them along like this. I told him that, too.

Brooke: You spoke with him?

Ridge: I just came from there.

Brooke: Oh, Ridge.

Ridge: Look, he tore up the annulment papers for a reason. He doesn't want Steffy to end the marriage. Doesn't that tell you something?

Taylor: So you really don't believe that this marriage is gonna end?

Stephanie: I believe that Liam still loves her, and I don't see why he would let her go.

Taylor: It's just that I'm going to get a call from my daughter tonight, and she's either going to be in tears, or she's going to be ecstatic that this commitment to her marriage has paid off and--and it's gonna survive all this. And I think she's going to know exactly what's happening the minute she walks in the door.
