Bill: So is this how it's gonna be around here, you moping around like somebody kicked your puppy?

Liam: The woman I'm supposed to marry packed her things and left our house last night. I'm sorry I'm not jovial enough for you.

Bill: Son, a blind man could see this coming.

Katie: (Sighs)

Bill: Same song, second verse. You hit a little speed bump. Hope exits the vehicle and starts walking.

Katie: Speed bump-- is that what we're calling Steffy these days? Listen, Liam spent the night with his ex-wife...

Bill: (Sighs)

Katie: The night before he was supposed to marry Hope. She has every right to be upset, but I'm sorry that she broke up with you. I'm sorry for both of you.

Liam: Thank you.

Bill: Yeah, well, in the meantime, life goes on. So I wonder what Hope has in store for you at another one of her little impromptu press conferences.

Katie: (Sighs)

Liam: Uh, you know what? You can fill me in, but I'm not watching that.

Steffy: Hey, you.

Liam: Hey.

Steffy: Not so good today, huh?

Liam: Not so good.

Steffy: Yeah.

Bill: Steffy, it's great to see you.

Steffy: Mmm.

Bill: Your timing couldn't be better.

Brooke: How are you feeling sweetheart?

Hope: Oh... (Sighs) Not the best morning I've ever had, but I'm okay.

Ridge: So it's true? You broke it off with Liam last night?

Hope: Mm-hmm. Moved my stuff and now I'm moving on.

Brooke: Oh, honey, I was hoping it wouldn't come to this.

Hope: So was I.

(Door closes)

Thomas: (Sighs)

Rick: Hey. How did it go with Hope after I left?

Thomas: No drama. I took her to your mom's house, sat with her for a while, and went home.

Rick: No word from Liam?

Thomas: No. I turned her phone off.

Rick: You see? Good. You're already having a positive effect.

Thomas: How's that?

Rick: Well, I mean, come on. If you weren't there, the phone would have been on, and Liam would have gotten to her.

Thomas: I don't know. She seems pretty adamant about being done this time.

Rick: Yeah, well, Liamís won her back more than once. Anyway, I hope that you'll continue to be someone, you know, my sister can count on.

Thomas: Just so you know, if Hope needs me, I'm there for her without any of your self-serving encouragement, by the way.

Rick: I'm sorry

Thomas: How dense do you think I am? You still have feelings for Caroline we both know it.

Rick: The way that you still have feelings for Hope, or are you gonna look me in the eye and tell me I'm wrong?

Thomas: No.

Rick: Then it's time to act, Thomas. Itís time to show Hope what it's like to be with someone who puts her first-- her needs-- and what you could give her.

Thomas: I'm having a hard time adjusting to you being to supportive. It doesn't exactly track with our past relationship.

Rick: Well, you're the lesser of two evils.

Thomas: Okay, well, that's an answer I can believe.

Rick: If it were my choice, I wouldn't want Hope with you or Liam. It's not an insult. It's just the way it is. I'd want her to be single, free to experience everything that a-a beautiful, talented young woman should, do the things, take the risks that I never got a chance to do because I tied myself down at too young of an age with Amber. And most of all, I'd like to see my sister living her life on her own terms instead of constantly trying to please some guy, especially one who's not worthy of her.

Thomas: Well, we're both in agreement about Liam. We both know what it's like to grow up in a house with divided loyalties.

Rick: Yeah. Hope deserves better.

Thomas: (Sighs)

Brooke: Are you sure about this, honey?

Hope: M-hmm. I can't be with a man who isn't fully committed to me.

Brooke: Liam is committed to you.

Hope: Yeah, when he's not sneaking around with Steffy. (Sighs) I-I-I'm done, you know. I cannot life my life always looking over my shoulder or being paranoid whenever Liam comes home from work late. It's just--it's-- it's too demoralizing.

Ridge: Can't really argue with that.

Brooke: Yeah. (Sighs) I know. I do understand. (Sighs) But I am sorry.

Hope: Um, I did something that was... stupid and juvenile. Um... (clears throat)

Brooke: What? You did something like that?

Hope: Oh, yeah, I did. Um... (Sighs) Okay, I had Thomas spray-paint on the tower at Liamís house...

Brooke: (Gasps)

Hope: A Spencer sword stabbing through a heart. (Chuckles)

Brooke: Oh. (Gasps)

Ridge: Vandalism-- interesting.

Hope: See what love's driven me to do? (Sighs)

Brooke: Honey, are sure it was your idea...

Hope: Yeah.

Brooke: And not Thomasís?

Hope: No. It was--it was mine. It was. It was mine. I mean, Thomas came up with, you know, the design and painted it, but I was my idea. Um...

Brooke: (Sighs)

Hope: He's been really supportive. I mean, this has been a lot easier with him around.

Ridge: Yeah, well, Thomas does know how to be a good friend, I guess.

Caroline: Anything I can do to help?

Hope: Oh, hi. Uh... (sighs) no. No. It's going to be very brief.

Stephanie: So what's going on?

Eric: This is a press conference that nobody had any time to prepare for?

Hope: Well... (sighs) Um I have a very important announcement to make.

Katie: What are you doing here, as if I even have ask?

Steffy: You know, I hate to disappoint you, Katie, but I have no ulterior motive. I knew this press conference out of nowhere was gonna be difficult on Liam.

Katie: So you just raced over here, because you're all about Liam.

Bill: I'm glad someone is.

Liam: I'm not watching it, by the way.

Katie: Oh, sorry, you're not needed. So why don't you just run along, back to where you came from and give Liam a chance to breathe?

Bill: No. Steffy stays.

Rick: The whole self-serving thing-- yeah, I can see why it would seem that way we both were stuck by the same lightning bolt when Caroline stepped out of that limo, and you got the girl.

Thomas: A competitive type like you, I'm having a hard time believing you're okay with that.

Rick: Well, there's not much I can do about it.

Thomas: Unless you divert me with Hope.

Rick: Come on. You think I'd pimp my sister like that? I love Hope, enough to look past my reservations about you, that is, indeed, if you're gonna be a man who treats her with respect that she deserves.

Thomas: Look at you, Rick the magnanimous.

Rick: Rick, the overprotective brother. Look, Hope is too proud to tell you this, so I'm gonna say it on her behalf. She needs you, even loves you. She wants you in her life. Yeah, it-- it's a delicate balance that requires finesse, but if you play your cards right, who knows? This could work out better for everyone involved.

Thomas: You make a compelling argument, Rick. You really do. (Sighs) Except for one thing-- Hopeís still hung up on Liam.

Rick: Well, nothing a little time and gentle persuasion won't cure. You should try that. Hope's press conference is about to start. I'm sure it would mean a lot if you were there.

Hope: I keep going over things in my head. I'm trying to pinpoint where exactly Liam and I got so off track that--that Steffy could just swoop in and... you know, we-- we really loved each other.

Brooke: You still do.

Hope: Love isn't enough this time.

Brooke: Honey.

Hope: Oh, I can't believe I'm saying that. (Sighs)

Brooke: No, love is always enough.

Hope: (Sighs)

Brooke: Maybe it's just bad timing. You and Liam can always find your way back to each other.

Hope: I can't base my life around that.

Brooke: Okay, nobody's expecting you to.

Hope: (sighs) I mean, I understand his frustration. I-I-I do. I mean, we were supposed to get together the night before the wedding. He cooked this really great meal, and then I didn't show up.

Brooke: Because Stephanie wasn't feeling well...

Hope: Yeah.

Brooke: And she didn't want anybody to know. So you had to stay with her. And you couldn't tell Liam.

Hope: Yeah, he thought I blew him off again. You know... but even so, I mean, for him to go out and do the things that he did with Steffy-- I... you know what? It's--it's not important. It doesn't matter anymore, because over is over.

Steffy: You know, it doesn't seem like it, but it's gonna get easier.

Liam: (Clears throat) Is it?

Steffy: Yeah. I just can't believe Hope walked out on you again. We didn't do anything the night before your wedding or any night since.

Bill: Yeah, that was your first mistake.

Katie: Here we go. (Sighs)

Bill: Hey... (Scoffs) I have tried to be supportive of Liamís relationship with Hope. Clean slate--that's what she got from me in Italy. Since then, she's left him twice. It's time for you to stop moping round. Get over this high-strung basket case

Liam: Dad, that is enough. No more talking about Hope. I'm serious.

Katie: Okay. I--Bill doesn't mean to upset you.

Bill: Yes, I do.

Liam: Oh, well, congratulations. Mission accomplished.

Katie: Can you just lighten up a little bit? Jeez!

Steffy: Hey, um...

Bill: (Sighs)

Steffy: I'm gonna show you something you won't believe.

Bill: Try me. Okay, you got me. What is it wait a minute. That looks like the tower at the beach house, but what...

Steffy: Courtesy of Hope. She had Thomas spray-paint it for her last night-- sort of a parting gesture.

Bill: Are you freaking kidding me?

Donna: It's only fair. If you're the one greeting the press, I should be the one escorting them that way both our bases are covered.

Pam: I hate it when you make sense. Mercifully, it doesn't happen that often.

Donna: Oh.

Pam: (Gasps) Jarrett!

Jarrett: Pamela. Mm.

Pam: Hello.

Jarrett: You look marvelous, as always.

Pam: Oh, thank you. Flattery will get you anything you like, including a lemon bar. I'm famous for them, you know.

Jarrett: I am well aware of that, yes.

Donna: Oh, boy, are you in for a treat again. (Chuckles)

Jarrett: (Chuckles) Mmm! Mmm.

Pam: Delish?

Jarrett: As always.

Pam: (Chuckles)

Donna: Was I right or was I right?

Jarrett: Oh, yes, definitely right.

Pam: (Laughs)

Jarrett: Mm.

Katie: What on earth is going on?

Bill: You want to know what's going on? Take a look at this. You tell me.

Katie: What is this?

Bill: Your niece's petulance.

Katie: Hope-- Hope would never do something like this.

Steffy: You know, Thomas did the actual grunt work.

Bill: At Hope's instigation. So tell me, Katie, is this a behavior of a woman or a child...

Katie: (Sighs)

Bill: Defacing property because a relationship didn't work out? I should press charges.

Katie: You'll do no such thing.

Bill: Last I heard, tagging was against the law.

Katie: Hope... (sighs) this is a little extreme I will admit, but she never would have done something like this is her heart wasn't broke.

Bill: How about she had an ounce of sense of maturity?

Liam: Okay, can you guys-- can you guys do me a favor and stop making a huge deal out of this?

Bill: Can you stop defending her ridiculous behavior?

Katie: (Groans) This is a mess.

Steffy: You got that right.

Katie: In large part, because of you.

Steffy: No, Katie, because Hope overreacted to a nonevent, as usual.

Bill: Hey, get a crew over to Liamís. They need to paint over the south tower. Hope had tantrum all over it. Okay, well, just about show time. Let's see what else Hope's gonna dump on you.

Liam: I'm not watching it. I told you that.

Katie: I'm sorry, Liam... (Sighs) But I have to see what's going on with my niece.

Liam: (Sighs)

Pam: Danica, may I tempt you with a lemon bar?

Danica: (Gasps) Oh, thank you so much.

(Voices overlapping)

Donna: Oh, Pammy, Pammy, enough with the lemon bars. (Chuckles) We're done here. Bye-bye. Thank you for coming.

Danica: Thank you, ladies.

Donna: It's time to go.

Pam: What-- what are you doing?

Dayzee: Do you have any idea what we're doing here?

Marcus: No, just that Hope has a big announcement to make.

Dayzee: It's pretty sudden.

Marcus: What, you think it's bad news?

Dayzee: Well, I'm trying not to, but she does look a big edgy.

Hope: Okay, here it goes.

Brooke: Love you, honey.

Hope: Love you, too. Okay, hi. Um, thank you, everybody, for coming. I'm going to, um, just get right to the point. I have decided to cancel Hope for the Future's bridal line. Um, Liam and I are not married. We are not getting married. So it seems very silly to have a line that's called Hope's Perfect Wedding.

(Camera shutters clicking)

(Indistinct conversations)

Hope: So it's-- uh, it's over-- the line, uh, my engagement. But you know, um, hmm, life starts fresh, and... I'm ready to, um... (clears throat) (exhales deeply) (whispering) I'm sorry. Can I get a glass of water or something? Thanks.

Rick: (Whispering) Are you all right?

Hope: I don't think so.

(Camera shutters clicking)

Rick: If you're not up for this--

Hope: No, no. I am. (Sighs) Okay. Uh, I-Iím sure that you all have a lot of questions. So... yeah?

Jarrett: Uh, Hope for the Future has been centered on your wedding for the past year. Um, now you tell us there won't be one and the bridal line is kaput. So where does this leave you? What is your personal Hope for the Future?

Hope: Um...

Rick: Hope has made her announcement. Thatís all she'll have to say. But I'd be more than happy to explain exactly why the wedding won't be happening.

Jarrett: Excellent. We'd love to hear it.

Rick: My sister's magnificent, the embodiment of her concept of Hope for the Future. She's a lady with class. High moral standards, and, not to mention, exceptional beauty.

Hope: (Chuckles)

Rick: See, Liam Spencer is not good enough for her. He's just not Forrester material. The guy has proven too many times that he's not in it for the long-term commitment. So Hope is moving forward.

Danica: So are there any new love interests on the horizon, Hope?

Hope: Oh.

Rick: You know, when a woman as so much to offer like my sister, thatís always a possibility. But you can bet when Hope is ready to make an announcement about her personal life, she'll be talking about a man of integrity. The bridal line is finished, but Hope for the Future continues as exciting and dynamic as ever, encouraging young women to embrace their strengths and independence as a lifestyle. We're taking the--the line to the next level, folks, and by doing that, we're adding a designer.

Ridge: What the hell is he talking about?

Brooke: I don't know.

Rick: This man needs no introduction. His work is cutting edge. It's hot yet elegant. So help me welcome Thomas Forrester to Hope for the Future.

Woman: Oh, ho ho!

Woman: All right!


Stephanie: Ridge looks like he swallowed a prairie dog.

Eric: Hmm.

Stephanie: I guess he must be... (Chuckles) Surprised. Did Rick tell you?

Eric: No. No, he didnít.


Rick: Come on up here and join us, Thomas.


(Camera shutters clicking)

Steffy: Well, that's pretty much it. (Turns down volume)

Liam: Did you know about this?

Steffy: No. No you know what? Let's just get out of here. Let's get, uh, let's get something to eat.

Bill: Liam, you are trying my patience. Can you lose the puppy dog eyes, start acting like a man?

Katie: (Sighs)

Bill: And while we're on the subject, ditch the preppy clothes. Start dressing like a grown-up. And no more soft editorials. Hard-hitting Spencer journalism.

Katie: Why?

Bill: Let's get back to that.

Katie: Why are you attacking your son?

Bill: Because it's enough already. You're my son, my heir. Start acting like it.

Thomas: I'm extremely honored to join such an amazing team and...

(Volume increases)

Thomas: I got some great ideas for Hope's new line. I'm--I'm very excited to help her realize her vision. Wow. You ready to make some noise?

Hope: Yeah. Absolutely.

Thomas: Let's do it.

Man: Whoa!


Katie: Wow.

(Camera shutters clicking)


Liam: (Sighs)
