Steffy: You know, I understand Hope's hurt. Seeing that video-- yes, it was a shock. And I'm not trying to make light of her pain, but you guys are supposed to be married. She can't just walk out on you.
Liam: What do you want me to say, Steffy? She needs time.
Steffy: Well, she needs to grow up. I tried talking to her. I-I tried to explain to her.
Liam: I know. But what--what am I supposed to do?
Steffy: Let her walk.
Brooke: Of course, you can stay, Honey...
Brooke: For as long as you want. But are you sure?
Brooke: (Sighs) I really think it would be easier to get through this with Liam by your side.
Hope: (Sighs) Maybe. Maybe not. I don't--I don't know. I just know that I need some time.
Dayzee: Mm. (Sighs)
Marcus: Okay, back, back, back, back.
Dayzee: (Sighs) (Sighs)
Marcus: Man, I love holding you. I never want to let you go.
Dayzee: And you won't have to as soon as you get home. I'm so glad that Eric and Bill were able to call in favors and set the bond hearing for tonight.
Marcus: Yeah, me, too
Marcus: Our second night of marriage-- man, I can't wait to be spending it with my wife. Ooh.
Tony: Finding anything?
Thomas: Well, we're on the right night.
Caroline: We're just waiting to see if Anthony comes in the frame.
Tony: Why? We know Marcus hit him.
Thomas: I know. It's just... something feels funny about it. (Sighs)
(Cell phone alert chimes)
Caroline: Your grandma knows how to text?
Thomas: Oh, yeah. She's hip. What's she texting you about?
Caroline: She's just reminding us about the bond hearing.
Thomas: Maybe we can find something that helps. (Sighs) There's got to be more to what happened to Anthony, more than Marcus even realizes.
Justin: Showtime. Let's get you out of here and back home.
Steffy: You know, I made a mistake the day of your wedding. I never should have told you to go through with it.
Liam: But you were trying to do the right thing.
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah. I was... I was trying to be the bigger person, but look where it got you. I-I tried to respect your relationship, but you know what? Hope is just too much.
Liam: Steffy, come on. I mean, Hope has every right to be hurt.
Steffy: Yeah, yeah. Definitely. Definitely. She should be screaming at you. She should yell. She should cry. But she should do it right here, standing right here, looking right in your eyes. A marriage going to survive? Liam, I know, okay, she's innocent. Yeah, she's innocent. But she's crazy. You know what? I think she's even crazier than her mom.
Steffy: And you know what? I don't--I don't mean to be rude or anything, but it's true.
Steffy: Haven't you had enough? So...
Leilani: Your car had the same damage?
Caroline: From that pothole right outside.
Thomas: Yeah, flat tire, busted rim, just like Marcus. It's just something's not adding up.
Thomas: If the accident's caught on camera, maybe we can find out what.
Justin: Thank you for your time this evening, your honor. My client has admitted that this accident is his fault. Texting while driving is a crime, and he accepts full responsibility. Thankfully, his exemplary behavior during the time of the accident and immediately following may have saved the victim. Marcus immediately got out of the car, called the ambulance, waited until the ambulance arrived, and then followed Mr. Walker to the hospital. He has made a grave mistake, posing a danger to himself and others. The lesson has been learned, and he will never do it again. Respectfully, we request that Marcus be released on bond until which time his trial is scheduled.
Brooke: Are you sure you don't want to go back there and sit down with him, talk this out?
Hope: Talking isn't gonna do anything at this point. I just--I just really need some space.
Brooke: Okay. (Sighs) Take all the time that you need. Just make sure that he knows you're going to be coming back eventually to work this out.
Hope: Or what? I might lose him to Steffy?
Steffy: So what did she say?
Liam: Uh, that she's horrified.
Steffy: I mean, if she can't understand the situation--
Liam: No, it's not... (Sighs) It's because it was on our wedding day. That's why it's such a big deal.
Steffy: Yeah. Well, you know, at least it was before the ceremony.
Liam: So you really, um... you really tried to calm her down, huh?
Steffy: Yeah, I tried. I tried... for you. (Sighs) You know, she, um... she said I could have you.
Steffy: Yeah, she even tried giving me her--her wedding ring.
Liam: Oh, come on! That--
Steffy: No, you know...
Steffy: She's had everything she's ever wanted, Liam, and now she's just throwing it away. Yeah, I-I saw, um... I didn't--I didn't hear your actual voice but... I saw them, you know, from across the way.
Steffy: And it was really, really beautiful. But Hope thinks that day was ruined. Do you really want to tie yourself to someone like that for the rest of your life? I'm not supporting this, Liam. It's time to let her go.
Caroline: This should be around the time.
Thomas: Yeah. Oh, look, it's Anthony.
Caroline: It's not a great angle, but...
Thomas: Oh, my God.
Caroline: Oh, my God. Go back.
Thomas: Yeah, yeah.
(Keyboard keys clicking)
Caroline: Pause it. That's it.
Thomas: We've got to get to the hearing.
Woman: Your honor, I'd like Lieutenant Brad Baker to make a brief statement. His investigation will provide you with the more accurate characterization of Marcus Forrester than what the defense is selling.
Man: All right. Lieutenant, what can you tell me about Mr. Forrester?
Lt. Baker: Well, your honor, Marcus Forrester is a serial texter. On the day of the accident, he sent or received 157 texts. At least one of them was behind the wheel, because it was only 27 seconds from his last text to his fiancée to his 9-1-1 all. He didn't see the victim, had no awareness of a pedestrian until he felt the impact. Mr. Walker could have very easily been killed.
Woman: Yes, and so could Mr. Forrester's next victim. I mean, I fear he's gonna climb back into his car and forget about all these positive lessons he's learned. I mean, are we really supposed to believe that a man who sends over 100 texts a day won't be tempted to open his phone behind the wheel? That will be a difficult habit to break. You know, Marcus may need stronger reinforcement.
Dayzee: That's not fair. Marcus is--
Man: Young lady, sit down right now. Even though these are my chambers, courtroom demeanor is expected. Control your client's family, Mr. Barber.
Man: Another outburst, and they all leave. Now what kind of reinforcement are your proposing?
Woman: The people respectfully request that bond be denied.
Hope: You sound like Steffy.
Brooke: (Chuckles) I don't really agree with her very often, but... (Sighs) Given what you and Liam have been through to be together, are you really going to let it end like this?
Hope: That's not what I'm doing. Not--I'm--I'm not doing that. I'm--I'm just taking a step back. I-I think I'm owed that. I am just trying to process how any of this really could have happened. I... I just know that I cannot my acknowledge marriage started the day my husband almost left me.
Brooke: If Steffy takes advantage of this... (Sighs)
Hope: (Scoffs) She will. I'm not stupid. Steffy's a threat. And with Liam's track record, she's probably over there right now.
Liam: Somehow letting go of Hope just doesn't seem possible.
Steffy: And yet it's so easy for her to give up on you. She does this to you over and over again. She's a child trying to function in an adult world. But it's not her fault. No, it's not her fault. She was trained to believe that she can have whatever she wants.
Steffy: Life isn't perfect, Liam. (Scoffs) Come on. It is not perfect. If you're lucky enough to find that one person that you could share the rest of your life with, someone like you, you don't need it to be perfect.
Liam: I know. I agree. You--you lean on each other. You make each other stronger.
Steffy: Yeah. That's how you make a marriage work.
Liam: You always wanted me to find a true partner.
Steffy: Yeah. I tried to accept Hope. I tried to believe that she was a good person. But let's look at the history. (Sighs) She walks out on you on a consistent basis. You really want to be with someone like that for the rest of your life? You want someone to just blow things out of proportion, to just storm off whenever, and then to realize they were a complete idiot? How many--how many times has she moved in and out of this house? Do you remember Aspen when you, um... when you brought me back? And we went back to that house together, and, um, on the door, there was a note from Hope...
Steffy: "I can't deal with it. I'm going back to L.A."
Liam: Yeah, I know. Even then you were... trying to make yourself believe we could work.
Steffy: Mm. Yeah, and I gave you an annulment. In the back of your mind, I knew that you had this giant "What if?" You need this time with Hope. There's a reason you tore up those annulment papers. You weren't sure. But now you should be. You should tell Hope, "Thanks for the memories." She isn't the person for you, Liam. I am.
Justin: Your honor, I cannot understand why my colleague does not want my client released tonight. Considering the nature of his crime, it does not warrant such a harsh--
Woman: It seems we have a difference of opinion on the seriousness of drivers paying attention to the road.
Justin: Well, by all means, it is serious, your honor, and my client fully understands that. He is ready to stand trial, but he has preparations. He has a new wife of two days now. And they have an infant they need to make arrangements for, Sir.
Woman: Maybe he should have thought about that before running his car into a pedestrian.
Justin: Uh, who, by the way, your honor, is receiving the absolute best care. Marcus is intending on paying for reconstructive surgery to correct a lifelong foot problem. The physician here can testify on his behalf. Your honor, Marcus is doing everything he can to make this right.
Man: (Sighs) Mr. Forrester, I am very impressed with your dedication to the victim and your appearance of remorse. You seem like a very nice guy. But nice guys break the law. A man is in the hospital because of what you did. Luckily for him, you come from a family of considerable wealth and can pay for his recovery. However, I have information of private jets, residences abroad. It seems to me you'd easily flee if you wanted to avoid a trial.
Stephanie: Your honor, Marcus is not a flight risk.
Man: Excuse me. Your family is used to exercising power and influence. That will not happen in my court room. Marcus Forrester, you will be held until trial without bond at the L.A. County jail.
Stephanie: Oh, no. No.
Eric: Oh, God.
Man: Mr. Forrester will be remanded immediately to county jail.
Dayzee: I love you.
Marcus: I love you.
Thomas: What happened?
Eric: He didn't get bail. He has to stay in jail until the trial.
Thomas: They can't do that!
Brooke: I warned her to stay away from Liam, but she could be over there right now. It should be you. Legally or not, Liam is your husband.
Hope: Not yet. I mean, my--maybe he will be, maybe, but things will really have to change.
Brooke: Honey, mistakes happen. I know. I'm speaking from experience.
Brooke: The best way to face these things and handle them is with your partner. I'm sorry, but you are leaving the door wide open for Steffy to make a move.
Hope: Okay, well, if Liam has learned anything from all this, he will steer clear of her. I can't change how I feel. I cannot change who I am. And if Liam loves me, he'll understand that. (Sighs)
Steffy: I'm not saying you don't need Hope in your life.
Liam: (Scoffs) I need you both in my life.
Steffy: I'm talking about Bob Hope.
Steffy: Did--did you think I was talking about someone else or something, really?
Liam: See, okay... (Stammers) Hope doesn't really get his humor. You get his humor, but Hope doesn't get it.
Steffy: Well, well, what else do you need in a marriage... except a little laughter and the ability to stay put, fight through things, and work together? You know, what happened in Italy wasn't--it wasn't only because of that--that letter. It was because you were with me, someone who you're connected to, someone to lean on if--if you need it. That's why we kissed. It wasn't a misunderstanding. It was a man finding solace in his best friend. Do I have to hit you over the head before you get it?
Liam: No, no, no. I'm sorry. No! I just--I don't... come on. I don't know what you want me to say.
Steffy: I want... (Sighs) Say good-bye to Hope. Put her in your past. Look to your future. Your future is us. Your future... is with me.
