Rick: You're good. Come on. Come on. You say it with me. You're... good.
Hope: I'm... okay.
Rick: Well, that's a start.
Hope: What a disaster, huh?
Rick: Yeah, more like another wake-up call.
Hope: (Scoffs) Yeah, another one. Like I haven't had a dozen of those. I, uh, I talked to Liam and Steffy.
Rick: I bet you did.
Hope: They keep telling me the same thing-- that nothing happened.
Rick: When they were partying the night before your wedding?
Hope: (Sighs) Yeah. It doesn't look good, does it?
Rick: No. It's inexcusable, Hope. After what happened in Italy, they shouldn't be within 10 miles of each other.
Hope: (Sighs) I mean, even if they didn't plan to get together... (Sighs)
Rick: Yeah, right. They're, uh, they're like magnets. Yeah. That should tell you everything you need to know.
Steffy: Hey, Spencer. What's the good word?
Liam: Oh, I'm sure you've heard. (Scoffs)
Steffy: Yeah. I'm sorry.
Liam: Oh, me, too. But it's okay. I mean, you know, we're-- we're working through it.
Steffy: Is that a fact?
Liam: Well, I am trying to anyway.
Steffy: You must have been quite a hit with the, uh, the hair and the tattoo.
Liam: (Scoffs) Oh, yeah, man. I was the talk of my wedding. All I had to do was make a fool of myself, so that's good.
Steffy: Oh, my God. So what? You went out the night before. Most guys do.
Liam: (Sighs) Yeah, well, most guys don't show up at their wedding looking like an idiot. At least it's not permanent.
Steffy: (Chuckles) Yeah, well, uh, I had a little chat with your fiancée. I told her unfortunately nothing happened between us. I left out the "Unfortunately."
Liam: (Chuckles) Thanks. I appreciate that.
Steffy: Yeah. I'm not so sure if she, uh, believes me.
Liam: Yeah, I'm not so sure she believes me. Who can blame her after what happened in Italy?
Steffy: She'll forgive you, Liam. She'll be a fool not to.
Hope: I want to believe Liam.
Rick: Why? Look it. The fact is, he was out with her the night before marrying you.
Hope: I know. I know. And he was supposed to be with me, but, I mean, I had to cancel.
Rick: Yeah, because of Stephanie's health issues. I heard. But still, he--he was out with Steffy. (Scoffs)
Hope: (Sighs) I know. I know. And they keep telling me that they're just friends. (Sighs)
Rick: Sis, they're more than friends.
Hope: He swears up and down that he wants to marry me, that Steffy won't be a problem.
Rick: Steffy's been a problem since day one. And trust me. She's gonna continue to be a problem.
Hope: It's just really hard, because he keeps telling me that he loves me.
Rick: Of course he loves you. What's not to love?
Rick: You got it-- you got it all-- the beauty, the brains, the integrity. I mean, let's face it. He--he hit the jackpot here, Hope.
Hope: You're biased.
Rick: No, I'm being honest. Look, I didn't keep you out of trouble all those years just to bail on you now. I mean, you just-- you're too good for Liam. And I know that you love him, but I can't honestly stand by in good faith and watch him hurt you again.
Hope: (Sighs) You're a really good big brother, but I don't want to be that girl, I mean, getting mad just because Liam went out for the night. I mean, if nothing happened, I feel like I should forgive it.
Rick: What? No, you can't. They were out together all night long. They spent the night in a cabana.
Rick: You need to know the truth, and you're not gonna hear it from Liam and Steffy.
Steffy: Okay, so Hope runs out of the guesthouse, and you chase after her.
Liam: Mm-hmm. But I don't catch her, at least not until she gets inside the main house.
Steffy: And then you followed her?
Liam: Right. Right. But by that point, she's already upstairs, so, you know, I'm... (Scoffs) I'm standing there yelling at her, trying to convince her to come down and marry me, totally oblivious to everybody else in the room, by the way--all these party guests, and I finally look in the mirror and I realize I'm--I'm standing there in my boxer shorts. And even that didn't stop me. So go figure.
Steffy: Well, I can't forget about the hairdo and the crazy tattoo.
Liam: Yeah, I know.
Liam: It wasn't pretty. It was not pretty. You can laugh, by the way. That's okay. Permission to laugh.
Steffy: No, no, no, no. I-I'm sorry. I-I know it's-- it's horrible. I-I'm sorry.
Liam: Yeah, top five worst days.
Steffy: So, uh, did you guys talk afterwards?
Liam: We did. We did talk.
Steffy: So where do things stand?
Liam: My future is in her hands. Either she forgives me and we get married, or she doesn't and... we're done.
Hope: Yeah, just bring it up, Grace. I'll handle it. I know they're waiting. I'll get right on it. Um, she's on her way up, so I'm gonna have to cut this short.
Rick: Before you go-- you know that he's not telling you the whole story.
Rick: Did he open up completely about what happened in Italy? No. If you hadn't gone and seen it for yourself, you would have never known what happened in that hotel room.
Hope: Okay, but why would Steffy lie to me, you know? I mean, she's got no reason to. She's telling me the exact same thing Liam is. Trust me. If something had happened, if they had kissed, she would be throwing it in my face right now.
Rick: Yeah, well, look, all I'm saying is that you need more proof.
Rick: Have you talked to any of their friends that were at the club that night?
Hope: No. No, I'm--no, I'm not gonna do that. That's weird. I-it's ridiculous. No.
Rick: Well, I-I-- well, I will then. What... (Scoffs) Who are they?
Hope: I don't know. I don't know who they are.
Rick: Well, I-- did he mention anybody at all...
Rick: That--that we might know there? No?
Hope: No, he--no. Yes, actually. Yeah, he said that your friend Othello was the deejay that night.
Rick: Really? Othello?
Hope: Mm-hmm. Yeah.
Rick: Yeah, I got a call from him earlier today.
Hope: He helped us out in Aspen.
Rick: Yeah, you know, maybe he could, uh, help us out again.
Hope: Do you think he would have seen something?
Rick: Well, maybe, you know, from the deejay booth. He's got a view of the whole place.
Hope: No, no, this is crazy. This is weird. No.
Rick: Oh, come on. What is the harm in asking?
Hope: I'm not-- you go ahead. That's fine. You can knock yourself out.
Rick: Hope, do you see how important this is? Look. (Sighs) If Liam were a solid guy, I'd roll out the welcome mat. I want you to be happy. But I also don't want a repeat of what happened to Mom.
Hope: Oh, God, neither do I.
Rick: Yeah, because we were there. We both lived it. We saw that pain, the insecurity, what it did to us. It left a lot of scars, and I don't want that for you. But that's what you're in for if you marry a man who's in love with two women. Come here.
Grace: Oh, sorry.
Hope: Oh, hey, Grace. No, it's fine.
Grace: You know how you told me to find you if the cutting room got behind?
Hope: Oh, again? Oh, my God. Okay, um, yeah, all right. Let's go. Thank you for the heads-up.
Rick: (Clears throat)
Hope: Um, and, hey, I really do appreciate your advice.
Steffy: Triple cappuccino?
Liam: Ah, thank you. And, um, thank you for telling Hope the truth about last night.
Steffy: Mm, you're still determined to marry Hope?
Liam: (Sighs) Yeah, if she'll forgive me.
Steffy: For something you didn't do.
Liam: Okay, that sounds weird when you put it like that.
Steffy: Well, I-- I kind of understand.
Liam: You do?
Steffy: Well, you haven't exactly proven yourself to be committed, Liam.
Liam: I-I know. But I am. I am.
Liam: If she'd just give me another chance...
Steffy: And if she doesn't?
Rick: Thank you for coming over.
Othello: Yeah, yeah, yeah. You said it was important. How you doing?
Rick: I'm good. Yeah, it--it is. It's totally important, uh...
Othello: What's up?
Rick: That gig that you had, uh, the other night at the nightclub.
Othello: Oh, yeah, Bananas. You should have been there.
Rick: Yeah, yeah, I wish I could have been. I was getting ready for the wedding.
Othello: Your sister? Liam? I thought you said it didn't work out.
Rick: Yeah, that's because her fiancé was at the club the night before the wedding with Steffy.
Othello: Yeah, I was wondering about that.
Rick: You saw them?
Othello: Oh, yeah. Liam was in rare form.
Rick: Why don't you take a seat...? (Clears throat) And, uh, tell me a little more about this, uh... (Chuckles) This rare form.
Othello: Rare form-- beer, shots, gettin' crazy on the dance floor.
Rick: Liam and Steffy?
Othello: Liam and everyone.
Rick: Well, I'm-- I'm more interested in Liam and Steffy. What were they doing?
Rick: Uh, anything else?
Othello: You know, it's obvious they have something, but no.
Rick: Crossing the line?
Othello: No, no, not that I saw. Why? You hear something different?
Rick: Well, they keep insisting that nothing happened. Uh, but I'm not buying it.
Othello: I don't blame you. I mean, the smiles, the looks-- they have something, but, really, it's not physical. I mean, I even went up to the pool later, and they were passed out separately.
Rick: I need you to do something for me. (Clears throat)
Othello: Sure thing.
Rick: For my sister.
Liam: This is my last chance with Hope.
Steffy: Your head is spinning.
Liam: Yeah, I just-- I need her to believe that-- that nothing happened between you and me.
Steffy: But nothing did.
Steffy: And if she loves you and trusts you, she'll believe you.
Liam: Steffy, it's not that simple, and you know that.
Steffy: Yeah, because of me.
Liam: (Sighs) Yeah, because of you.
Steffy: And what does that tell you? That her fear is justified?
Steffy: Unless I am not in your life ever again, then that fear of hers will be gone. But I'm here. We share a certain bond, you know that? Look at us in this coffee shop laughing and enjoying each other's company. And it's completely innocent. But Hope doesn't think it is. And I kinda understand.
Liam: Okay, but here's the thing. I made a commitment to Hope, and--and I intend to follow through.
Steffy: No, you haven't. You have not made a commitment to Hope.
Steffy: You're trying to live up to her principles and her morals. A commitment is in here. It's not in here. She's always walking out on you over and over again, and I know you hate it, and I know it makes you miserable.
Liam: It doesn't have to be that way.
Steffy: But it is. It's amazing. It's really amazing-- your loyalty to Hope. What's even more amazing is your loyalty to me. If I weren't in the picture, you and Hope would be married right now. But you're not. Now there's a reason for that. Look, I know-- I know how happy you would be with me. Liam, look at me. I believe that day is coming. And I think you feel it, too.
Othello: Sure thing. What do you got for me?
Rick: I want you to talk to Hope.
Rick: About what happened last night with Liam and Steffy.
Othello: You mean about what didn't happen last night.
Rick: No. That's--that's not what I mean. Look, my sister is everything to me. When I was her age, I made a huge mistake, and I've been-- I've been paying for it ever since.
Othello: Marrying Amber.
Rick: Yeah, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. But could anybody tell me otherwise? Hell, no. I was Rick Forrester. I did what I wanted.
Rick: But I suffered for it.
Othello: Yeah, Bro, I saw that happening from a distance.
Rick: I don't want that to happen to Hope. You know, I-I-if she marries Liam, she's gonna drag herself through that-- that same mud that I did. And, you know, she's gonna-- she's gonna fight, you know, to try to make it work, because I know my sister, and she's gonna hate herself for it, trying to make a-- a marriage work with a guy who can't give her what she wants and what she needs, deserves.
Othello: Yeah, but, man, that--that might not be that way for her.
Rick: You were at that club. You saw those two together. Do you honestly believe that?
Othello: (Scoffs) (Sighs) What do you want me to do?
Rick: I want you to tell Hope what you saw is exactly what we think went on.
Othello: (Scoffs) Rick.
Rick: Look, I know you don't know what actually happened. You were in the deejay booth. You were busy, but, you know, I know that Liam is--is way too smart to do anything in public with Steffy. But up in the cabana? I mean, come on. You really think they were discussing politics? I know what goes on between those two when they're alone. It's happened before. And believe me, it happened again last night.
Rick: Hey, you'll be helping her.
Othello: (Sighs) Yeah, I'll be helping her to be sad and alone. (Scoffs)
Rick: Well, I don't think she's gonna be alone for that long. Thomas Forrester proposed to her a ways back, and I believe he still has feelings for her.
Othello: (Chuckles) Thomas Forrester. Isn't he dating Caroline Spencer, the same one you're into?
Rick: It's not like that. Look, I don't want Hope to get hurt, and she will. You're the only one that can prevent that from happening.
Hope: Othello, hi.
Othello: Hey, Hope. How are you?
Hope: Boy, you don't waste any time, do you?
Hope: So... what's going on? So I hear you've been working in town.
Othello: Yeah, a few gigs-- a club on Sunset, festivals in San Bernardino. You know?
Hope: Cool. You saw Liam last night?
Othello: As a matter of fact, I did.
Hope: And what exactly did you see?
Othello: Uh, he was having a good time. He was having fun.
Hope: Had a little too much to drink from what I hear.
Othello: (Chuckles) Yeah.
Hope: He and his friends.
Othello: Yeah, the hair-and-makeup crew can party, that's for sure.
Hope: Apparently. Did you, um, see the little number they did on him?
Othello: No, what do you mean?
Hope: You didn't? You didn't see his hair or the tattoo?
Othello: No. That must have happened in the back or something.
Hope: Did you see Steffy?
Othello: Yeah, she was there.
Othello: And what?
Hope: (Scoffs) Look, Othello, I know why Rick called you here. Now I need to know if something happened between Liam and Steffy last night. What did you see?
