Steffy: Why would you think I would lie? Liam and I both told you the same thing.
Hope: You two were at a club together all night, and you're telling me that nothing happened? Is that even possible?
Steffy: You really don't believe him?
Hope: I'm not sure that he remembers everything.
Steffy: (Chuckles) Well, I may be a lot of things, but I am not forgettable.
Hope: Are you telling me that something did happen?
Steffy: You really don't know. You talked to Liam, but yet you're here looking for reassurance. If you can't believe the man that you claim to love, why the hell would you believe me?
Liam: (Sighs) I kind of thought Hope would still be here.
Brooke: She left.
Liam: Yeah. Did she say where?
Brooke: You can't guess?
Liam: Wow. She really didn't believe me. (Sighs)
Brooke: I don't blame her. What were you thinking, Liam, going out with Steffy the night before your wedding?
Liam: I know. Believe me. I-I just--I wanted to be with Hope, really, and--and then she cancelled, and I... I... (sighs) messed up. And now all I want to do is fix it. Tell me I can.
Rick: Spoke to Liam.
Thomas: Yeah? How did that go?
Thomas: (Scoffs) Yeah, well, the guy's a mess.
Rick: Yeah, that guy's totally lost it. My sister's waiting for him to step up, be a rock. I mean, what does he think he's gonna do? He's gonna win her back by, like, acting like an idiot, yelling at her?
Thomas: Well, I wonder where he learned that from.
Rick: Oh, you can't put this all on his dad. I mean, Bill is a jerk, but Liam's a jerk who wants to be liked.
Thomas: So what's your point?
Rick: Well, for one, he hasn't treated either one of our sisters very nice.
Thomas: Wait, wait. So you don't blame Steffy for any of this?
Rick: Of course I don't blame Steffy. She's always known what she's wanted. It's Liam who can't make up his mind.
Liam: I just want to make this right, Brooke. I-I want to marry your daughter.
Brooke: After your antics today, I'm not sure she really wants to marry you.
Liam: I know. I know. I know. Well, maybe I can-- I-I can talk to her again, just alone this time.
Brooke: (Sighs) Good idea.
Liam: Well, your son doesn't seem to think so.
Brooke: He's just really protective of his sister.
Liam: Yeah, no kidding. He told me to stay the hell away from her. I can't do that. I-I can't. I love her.
Brooke: Then what are you doing here talking to me?
Hope: Yes or no-- did anything happen between you and Liam? It is a simple question.
Steffy: I already told you, Hope. We just danced. We had a good time. We never kissed. He never crossed that line. That's it. That's all I have to say. You wanted an answer. You got one. I guess it really isn't that simple, is it?
Liam: All right. Okay. Thanks, Madison. (Sighs) Hope's at the office with Steffy.
Brooke: (Sighs) You really put her in a horrible position.
Liam: I-I know. But I did tell her the truth. I mean, nothing happened between me and Steffy.
Brooke: I don't know if the truth matters anymore, Liam. When it comes to Steffy, your judgment is--
Liam: Yeah, but, Brooke, nothing happened. I mean, I...
Liam: I was wrong to go out. I-I definitely shouldn't have drank so much. But I didn't betray Hope.
Rick: You know, I don't really care what Liam says. You don't show up to a wedding like that and expect people to take you seriously.
(Cell phone rings)
Rick: I gotta take this.
Thomas: Go ahead. (Ring)
Rick: Hey, man. Where have you been?
Othello: I'm touring, bro. I'm actually right here in L.A. now.
Rick: Really? For how long?
Othello: A few more nights. I've been playing this club on sunset. Say the word, bro-- I'll put you on the list.
Rick: Uh... (Sighs) Well, yeah, that would be awesome, but, uh, I can't. Uh, my sister and Liam were supposed to get married today. (Sighs) Next time?
Othello: Yeah, yeah. Sure thing.
Thomas: All right, man, I gotta get back to work, so, uh, just tell Hope I'm sorry, okay?
Rick: Hey, you and Hope-- you had a-a pretty good thing going on a while back. You even proposed to her.
Thomas: Yeah, well, she chose Liam.
Rick: Yeah. I bet you she's regretting that now.
Steffy: Tell them it's a private matter and Forrester Creations doesn't have an official response at this time. But I-I don't think they're going to ask.
(Knock on door)
Steffy: Madison, hold my calls.
Steffy: You cannot blame this on me.
Brooke: You invited Liam into that club.
Steffy: So--so what do you want? Do you want an explanation, an apology? Because Hope was just here.
Brooke: And what did you say to her?
Steffy: I told her the truth.
Brooke: Nothing happened.
Steffy: Didn't Liam make that clear enough for you? He was freaking out. He was worried about his hair and his tattoo, that Hope would be devastated, and I told him he was overreacting. I guess he was right.
Brooke: Hope didn't care about his hair! What bothered her was that he was out the night before his wedding with you. But Liam realizes he made a mistake, one that will never happen again.
Hope: Hey, Rick, I... (Inhales sharply) (Sighs)
Liam: Can we talk?
Hope: Liam, today has--has been--
Liam: I know. I'm sorry. But I didn't lie to you.
Hope: Yeah, Steffy told me.
Liam: Okay, so you know.
Hope: (Sighs) No, Liam, I don't... not anymore.
Brooke: You went too far this time, Steffy.
Steffy: Weren't you listening? Nothing happened.
Brooke: You humiliated my daughter, and you made a fool out of Liam.
Steffy: I did not do that. I got Liam to my grandparents' house on time, and I did everything I could not to disrupt her perfect wedding.
Brooke: (Sighs) Except stay away from her fiancÚ.
Steffy: Okay. So if it weren't for me, they would be perfectly happy? How many times does Liam have to say "I love you"? What does it take to actually get Hope to walk down the aisle? Hope is looking for perfection, but Liam is not perfect. So I guess the question is, can Hope accept him for who he is?
Rick: Hope saw Liam for who he really is today.
Thomas: Yeah, well, he put on quite a show.
Rick: Hope finally is realizing what a mistake she made. Yeah, Liam doesn't see how special she is.
Rick: He doesn't have a clue.
Thomas: Look, Rick, I'm always gonna care about Hope.
Rick: And do you want her to be happy?
Thomas: Sure I do, but I'm dating Caroline right now, and you know that, because you were interested in her, too.
Rick: Yeah, that's not what this is about.
Thomas: Yeah, right.
Rick: I don't want Hope to go through what I did. I know how hard marriage can be. I know how rotten it feels when--when it--it-- it doesn't work. Look, Hope is not that much older than I was when I married Amber. And that was a train wreck. It took me years to recover from that. I don't want Hope going through that. And as mature as she is and--and thinking that this is what she wants, it's not what Liam wants.
Rick: He proved that today.
Thomas: Okay. Yeah. Rick, I agree with you. It's just, uh... I don't understand what this has to do with me.
Rick: You and I-- we--we don't like each other.
Rick: Our problems go way back.
Rick: And you're the last guy in the world I want with my sister.
Thomas: Unless you're working some kind of angle here.
Rick: I'm not.
Thomas: Look, Rick, you can spout off about Liam all you want. That's fine with me. But the way he's been acting, he deserves it. I would just really appreciate it if you left me out of it.
Rick: It doesn't bug you, though? The woman that you wanted to marry is throwing her life away with a guy who spent the night out before his wedding getting wasted with your sister? Look, we're never gonna be friends, Thomas. You don't respect me you don't respect what I do for this company. But you did respect Hope. And as hard as it is for me to say, you were good for her. I'm just saying, if you were interested, that would be good enough for me.
Liam: I just want to talk.
Hope: No, not today, Liam.
Liam: So Stephanie's-- that got weird.
Hope: I'm tired, and I just want to go home. (Sighs) Do you really think you did nothing wrong? Just because you and Steffy weren't intimate, I shouldn't be upset?
Liam: No. No. Forget all that, okay? Forget the hair and the tattoo and the motorcycle and me groveling in my boxers. I'm--I'm pleading temporary insanity on that one. But you asked me for the truth, and I did give it to you.
Hope: All of it?
Liam: Yes. I was at a club. I was dancing with Steffy and her friends. Othello was there, actually.
Hope: From Aspen?
Liam: Yeah. He was deejaying. (Sighs) And I got way too drunk, and I woke up in a cabana by the pool.
Hope: What cabana?
Liam: The one upstairs from the club. I was on one end, Steffy on the other.
Hope: I can't believe you stayed out with her all night the night before our wedding. What the hell is wrong with you? It is not...
Hope: Supposed to be like this.
Liam: I know. Today was really bad.
Hope: No, Liam, not... not just today.
Hope: I mean, have we gotten to a place where we... just don't make sense anymore?
Liam: To me, we're the only thing that makes sense.
Hope: No. No, this is what I do. I... I push all the bad things away from me, so I don't have to deal with them. I suffocate them, so I don't have to see them, I don't have to deal with it. And that way, I can just look at you and pretend like everything is fine.
Liam: Okay, so we face it. We work through it.
Hope: (Sighs) Oh, God, Liam, when... when is it enough? (Sniffles) I mean, when do we stop making each other feel like this? I'm hurt. You're guilty. When does it stop?
Liam: Now. It stops right now.
Hope: There aren't many people who I feel safe with, and I feel that with you, and I just--I hope that I never lose you.
Thomas: You won't. I-I promise you that. I do love you, Hope, and I want to be with you in--in Cabo, L.A.
Hope: Thomas, what are you doing?
Thomas: Will you marry me, Hope? (Sighs)
Thomas: (mouths words)
Brooke: Don't confuse the issue, Steffy.
Steffy: Oh, I'm sorry. Maybe I don't know what the issue is. I thought we were talking about Hope and Liam's screwed-up relationship. How come Hope can have this nervous breakdown, but Liam can't let off some steam? I mean, is that fair?
Brooke: Oh, my gosh. There we go-- the issue of fairness.
Steffy: It's not. It's the Logan double standard. Hope is on her soapbox, condemning Liam, and she's the one who called off the wedding, but--but Liam wanted to go through with it. But instead, she just yelled at him about how he looked and the way he acted.
Brooke: He wasn't just letting off a little steam. He was having tequila shots with his ex-wife the night before the wedding.
Steffy: What bothered her the most-- the fact that he was out with me or that he was actually having a good time? Look, they're miserable. They really are. She lets him down. He lets her down. It's--it's destructive. It's pointless. And the only one person in the world who actually thinks it's healthy is you.
Liam: I'm done asking you to forgive me.
Liam: I know that's not what either of us wants.
Liam: No. We want to feel better. We want to feel... the way we used to. We keep on doing this thing where... (sighs) we try to patch this up, and--and every time we do, it--there's a little bit missing, you know? It's--it's a little bit less than it was before. And every time I apologize to you, it gets harder and harder for you to believe, so I'm not gonna do that anymore, either. And this guilt... (chuckles) you know, it's like... it's like poison.
Liam: And the doubts-- even worse. And it makes you ask yourself, w-why do we do that? You know? But here we are. We keep on doing it. I came here to see you. You came here to see Steffy. We--we can't stop, because there is that thing, you know, that little thing inside of us that says, "don't give up."
Liam: "Keep on fighting, even when it hurts."
Liam: 'Cause not fighting-- wow... that would be unbearable, wouldn't it?
Liam: I love you whether you forgive me or not. I love you whether you believe me or not. I love you.
Hope: (Sniffles) I love you, too, but--
Liam: I love you. I love you.
Hope: (Sniffles) I want to believe you.
Liam: I know...
Liam: Because you love me, too.
Hope: (Sniffles) Liam, this way you feel about Steffy--
Liam: No. I love you. That's never gonna change. That's our foundation. That is--that is the thing that we have to get back to, stripping this relationship down to its studs and starting over with the one thing that really matters... love.
Liam: We're gonna make it. I believe that. We're gonna be okay.
