Jarrett: Hope, are you and Thomas an item now?
Hope: Uh, no. Uh, no, we're just-- we're friends.
Man: Don't hold out on us.
Woman: Friends with benefits?
Thomas: No. No, that's not her style.
Rick: Uh, you muscle heads are in the presence of a real lady. Pretend you know how to act.
Danica: All right, so what is the concept of the new line?
Rick: We're not ready to reveal that just yet.
Thomas: But you're going to love it, right, Hope?
Liam: He... kissed her? Hope--Hope and Thomas are kissing now?
Katie: What's that about?
Bill: Who cares what it's about? Hope's moved on. Maybe someone should take a hint and do the same.
Liam: I can't believe this. I mean, she just moved out last night! And now she's--she's-- she's kissing other people? I mean...
Bill: For God sake, Liam, snap out of it. You can't keep lettin' this girl make an ass out of you!
(Camera shutters clicking)
Danica: Hope, can we look forward to you and Thomas making any more announcements together in the near future?
Rick: Uh, we're out of time, but I promise, we'll have some exciting news for you very soon.
Jarrett: Congratulations, Thomas.
Hope: (Clears throat) Mm-hmm. (Clears throat) Okay, we are going to smile our way through this crowd, and then you are going to explain to me what just happened.
Liam: Just leave me alone, okay?
Bill: So you can, what, brood? Mope around over a girl who blatantly disrespects you in private and public?
Katie: That's not true.
Bill: Well, what do you call what we just saw? How do you defend that? I mean, Hope calls a press conference-- oh, of course, that's nothing new. I mean, every time she breaks a nail, she does that-- to announce that she is done with you. Then she lets her brother disrespect him, call him "Unworthy." And then to top it off, she plays "Tonsil tag" with another guy for the cameras. When is enough "Enough" for you?
Katie: You know, uh, something is off about this whole thing. I mean, the whole press conference, Hope seemed so disengaged, and even after Thomas kissed her, uh, that look on her face? Liam, that look was for you.
Steffy: You know what? For once, I have to agree with Katie. Liam, however it may look, Hope is still in love with you.
Thomas: Caroline, I owe you an explanation.
Caroline: Not really.
Thomas: Yes, I do. I just kissed Hope in front of the family and the press. You have a right to know why.
Caroline: I think I can figure it out. Besides, you're free to kiss whoever you want. So am I, especially if you're with Hope now.
Thomas: Look, Hope and I, we have history, and, yes, I care a lot about her, but as a friend who's going through something difficult. You haven't known Hope very long. She is strong, yes, but she's fragile, too. And you remember what happened last summer when she spiraled out? Caroline, I-I just-- I have to stay close right now to make sure that doesn't happen again.
Caroline: Let me get this straight-- you kissed Hope to protect her from herself?
Thomas: No, I... (Sighs) I kissed her to take advantage of a moment.
Caroline: You lost me.
Thomas: Look, Forrester has put a lot of time, energy, and money into Hope for the Future. It's crucial to the company that the line stays viable. The line's taken a lot of hits all just because of Hope's personal life. Canceling the bridal line, I-it could have been disastrous, unless we found a way to take the focus off. I saw a chance to create buzz... (Sighs) And I took it.
Caroline: (Chuckles) Well, okay, then.
Thomas: (Sighs) Caroline, wait.
Stephanie: Just when I think I know exactly what's going on in this family, somebody throws me a curve.
Eric: Double whammy today, too, right? Thomas designing with Hope and--an, uh, planting a kiss on her in front of the press like that?
Stephanie: Well, it certainly got their attention.
Eric: (Sighs) Yeah. I'm glad we're not young anymore.
Stephanie: What are you talking about? You're just an old geezer.
Eric: No, no, I'm serious. O-our grandchildren are crazy. They're--they’re just-- they’re so busy. They're falling in love. They're falling out of love. They're breaking up. Uh, they're making up. You know, they're changing careers at the drop of a hat. Wears me out just to think about it.
Stephanie: (Laughs) But that's the joy of life, Honey. We used to do the same thing.
Eric: No, we didn’t.
Stephanie: Yes, we did. We just didn't have social media to deal with.
Eric: Yeah... (Sighs) Social media-- good thing. It's messy, but it's a good thing.
Stephanie: Uh-oh, someone has some 'splaining to do over there.
Ridge: Now would be a good time to tell me what the hell you thought you were doing up there.
Rick: Saving my sister's line.
Ridge: By decreeing Thomas a designer, without clearing it with me?
Rick: I didn't know I was gonna do that. It's bad enough that-- that we're canceling the bridal line that we just started. Hope was about to freak out, and you know that would have been the story "Hope Forrester has a breakdown. Is she back on pills again?" I saw Thomas, I got the idea, I ran with it. And I have to say, him kissing her-- yeah, that was inspired. The press left salivating for more. And the bonus round? Liam had to have seen it. A nail in the coffin. All in day's work, I'd say.
Ridge: You can't just make important business decisions on the fly, Rick, and you certainly can't do it without clearing it with me first. Thomas has got his own line to get out there now.
Rick: So he can work on both, at least on paper. I mean, come on, Ridge I pulled this botched press conference out of the fire. You're not gonna be mad at me about that, are you?
Liam: I'm gonna find Hope.
Bill: You are not gonna do that.
Liam: Dad, I am gonna find out what the hell that kiss was all about!
Bill: You're gonna go pleading to Hope again? Make a mockery of yourself like you did in front of all the Forresters at the luncheon from hell? Are you gonna go bellow her name? Plead for her to marry you?
Liam: Drop it, Dad.
Bill: Do you even realize how you humiliate yourself for this girl?
Liam: God, do you even realize how little I give me?! I'm going, okay? I'm going, and you're no stopping me.
Bill: What is with that kid?!
Katie: I'm gonna go give Hope a call and see if she's okay. Why don't you calm down? I'll be right back. And I do love you, even when you're wrong.
Bill: I know you do, and I'm a lucky guy, and I want my son to be just as lucky.
Katie: All right.
Bill: And you-- stop playing so fair. It's counterproductive. You are well-positioned, Steffy. You are being everything that Hope isn't-- strong, solid, supportive. Don't blow it by making it easy for Liam to go back to Hope!
Marcus: You guys take care now.
Jarrett: Thank you.
Dayzee: Well, the Forresters sure know how to put on a press conference
Marcus: I know, right? Did you see that kiss coming?
Dayzee: No, I didn’t. Okay, do you think it’s a publicity stunt, or you think they really like each other?
Marcus: Well, the last I thought, I can remember Thomas was into Caroline.
Dayzee: Mnh-mnh, no, no, no, no, no. He probably still thinks that he has a chance with Hope.
Marcus: Yeah, what a nice guy--always there picking up the pieces of a beautiful girl's broken heart.
Dayzee: No, I don't think it's about that. I think he actually has real feelings for Hope and Caroline, which is unfortunate.
Marcus: Huh. Well--
Dayzee: And too soon for Hope, because she just broke up with Liam.
Marcus: Yeah, well, we'll wait. Maybe she's just pushing the buttons a little bit. You know, making Liam think about what he's losing.
Dayzee: I don't know, that doesn't really seem like Hope's style. That's more Steffy.
Marcus: Huh. Yeah, you're right about that-- that would be Steffy, manipulating the situation.
Dayzee: Mm-hmm. Mm-hmm.
Marcus: Okay, I'm going with publicity stunt.
Dayzee: All right, I'll cosign. Love it. (Giggles)
Marcus: High five. Cool. Now that's all over with, right?
Marcus: I would really want to spend some private time with my beautiful wife.
Dayzee: Oh, okay, we can go to the grocery store.
Marcus: N-no, I'm not hungry.
Dayzee: We can go to the movies.
Marcus: You're gettin' a little warmer. I was thinkin' a little matinee.
Dayzee: Mm-hmm. Don't you have to get back to work?
Marcus: Oh, Baby, business is in the field.
Dayzee: (Laughs) Well, then you'd better hurry up and take care of it. Yeah, yeah.
Marcus: Mm, I will. Okay. Mm-hmm.
Brooke: (Sighs) (Sighs) I thought I was gonna pass out when Thomas kissed Hope. What was he thinking?
Stephanie: Oh, Honey, you know he's just a big show-off. He's got all that charm, and he knows how to us.
Eric: He had the press mesmerized. He reminds me of another young designer I used to know.
Ridge: That's my boy.
Brooke: You don't see anything wrong with what Thomas did?
Eric: No. He seized the moment. So did Rick, for that matter.
Brooke: (Scoffs) At least Rick picked on somebody his own size.
Ridge: Oh, now what does that mean?
Brooke: That means he took the spotlight off of Hope and put it on Thomas. She was about to have a nervous breakdown. I would hate to think what would have happened if Rick did not step in. And I'm really angry at Thomas for doing that-- for kissing Hope to get the attention from the press.
Stephanie: Well, wait. Wait a minute. Let's look at it from another point of view. He diverted the attention away from Hope, and I don't think she was gonna be able to handle much more up there. I think it was good idea.
Brooke: I suppose. I'm just... (Sighs) Really worried about her, after everything she's been through.
Ridge: Sweetheart, Thomas is a good man. He's not going to let her break.
Caroline: You alone?
Rick: Hi. Thomas just left. He went to check on Hope.
Caroline: Why am I not surprised? So... that was some press conference.
Rick: Yeah, a couple of surprises.
Caroline: A big one for me.
Rick: Thomas said you were upset.
Caroline: Yeah, shouldn't I be?
Rick: Well, he said he was being spontaneous. I mean, at least that's what he told me.
Caroline: Yeah, well, that sounds just like a really good excuse to do something that you've been wanting to do all along.
Rick: He gets to kiss you. Why on earth would he kiss anyone else?
Caroline: Thomas and Hope go back, you know? Maybe there's just... unresolved feelings, and now she's free, so...
Rick: Ah, he's tried before. She usually doesn't take.
Caroline: So are you saying that I should just let it ride out?
Rick: What I'm saying is you should come and sit down by me. You know, sometimes we need a strong shoulder. It just so happens I have one. (Laughs) Come here. (Sighs) Better?
Caroline: Yeah. (Sighs)
Rick: You have amazing hair, you know that?
Rick: Do you do that, like, 100-brush stroke thing?
Caroline: (Laughing) Nobody does that! Your arm would fall off! (Laughs)
Rick: Oh, you're just that blessed? Wow.
Caroline: You're very good for my damaged ego.
Rick: I can do better. Come here.
Steffy: I don't want to repeat past mistakes, Bill. Manipulating Liam into being with me? It never worked, not in the long run.
Bill: But you don't have to throw him under the bus with Hope, either. Telling him that Hope still loves him? I mean, did you see his face? First time he perked up since Hope walked out on him.
Steffy: If Liam wants to be with Hope and chase after her, I won't stop him.
Bill: So you’re giving up.
Steffy: I love Liam I do. But if he wants be with me, it'll be his choice, of his own accord, not because I pushed him or you tricked him.
Bill: She is destroying my son, turning him into a love-struck wuss. Well, I'm not having it, not when there is a woman there who can lift him up, help him reach his full potential, turn him into a man. And that woman is you, and we have both known that from the beginning.
Steffy: Except there's Hope.
Bill: And now there’s Thomas, and she's into him. If she wasn't, she wouldn't have kissed him for the entire world to see.
Steffy: You know, I am not convinced that kiss was real. Yeah, you know, maybe for my brother, but not necessarily Hope.
Bill: Well, more bricks for the foundation we laid in Cabo. Thomas proposed, and you felt that Hope was willing to accept.
Steffy: Oh, my God, that is exactly what I'm talking about! You and I manipulated that, and it backfired.
Bill: Why are you fighting me on this? You're the right match for Liam. You used to know that. What has happened to you?!
Hope: (Sighs) Thomas, why did you kiss me? I mean, was this, like, a publicity thing, like with my mom?
Thomas: Partly. You know how much the press loves intrigue, and it never hurts to keep them buzzing when you're launching a new line.
Thomas: But mostly, I did it because I wanted to.
Hope: I find that hard to believe. (Chuckles)
Thomas: Why? Once upon a time, I asked you to marry me.
Hope: Thomas, you're with Caroline now.
Thomas: (Sighs) I loved you enough to make you my wife, Hope, and feelings like that just don't change overnight... at least not for me.
Hope: Me, neither.
Thomas: Are you mad?
Hope: I probably should be.
Thomas: I'll take that as a "No."
Hope: Just you can't make this a habit.
Thomas: (Sighs) What if I find you irresistible?
Hope: Then control yourself.
Thomas: No promises.
Brooke: I still can't believe Thomas planted that big kiss on Hope.
Ridge: Pretty good move, all things considered...
Ridge: Though I probably wouldn't admit that to Rick.
Brooke: From a business perspective, maybe.
Ridge: Hey, personally, as well. Hope and, uh, Hope and Thomas are a good fit.
Brooke: Except that she belongs to Liam.
Ridge: Come on, Logan, that's over.
Brooke: For now.
Ridge: (Inhales sharply) I think Hope and Liam have run their course.
Brooke: Okay... (Sighs) We're gonna have to agree to disagree on this.
Ridge: Done. Enough about the wedding that didn't happen.
Ridge: Let's concentrate on the one that will happen very... very... soon.
Brooke: (Chuckles) Well, I'm gonna have to check my schedule...
Brooke: To see if I'm available.
Ridge: Okay, well, you go right ahead and do that.
Brooke: (Gasps) Will you look at that?
Brooke: It happens to be wide open. (Giggles)
Steffy: Liam's gone, so you're gonna yell at me now?
Bill: I just don't get why you're being so passive.
Steffy: Maybe my experience has taught me that you can't force someone into loving you. Liam wants to be with Hope!
Bill: She is destroying my son!
Steffy: Oh, you're exaggerating.
Bill: She is killing his growth as a man, and in my book, that qualifies. To think that my son would go running through the Forrester mansion in his underwear, begging... that can never happen again. I need you to stop it, before Liam becomes a complete laughingstock.
Steffy: Oh, and how do you propose I do that?
Bill: Well, for starters, you could stop being so damned respectful. Hope dumped him. Stake your claim. Shake things up. Lay that "Steffy treatment" on him.
Steffy: Bill, he left to see Hope. I'm sure he's with her right now.
Hope: I'm not sure what you're expecting-- between us, I mean.
Thomas: I want us to be whatever we are.
Hope: Cryptic, nice. (Laughs)
Thomas: Look, I like being with you and that... (Sighs) You can trust me. Anything other than that, I-- it's gonna take time. That's fine.
Hope: Okay, I don't-- I don't know if I'm ever going to be ready for something more than a friendship here.
Thomas: Well, you're not always gonna be hung up on Liam.
Hope: No. No, I'm-- I mean, it kind of feels like it right now. But I'm not okay with being with a man who would kiss another woman the night before the wedding.
(Door flies open)
Liam: What the hell was that, Hope?
Liam: "What"? Thomas kissing you like that at the press conference.
Hope: Are you... (Laughs) Are you serious? Um, you don't get a say, Liam. We're not together anymore. Remember?
Liam: Yeah, not together for, like, a day, and I'm pretty sure he's taking advantage of you because he knows you're hurt and you're angry and you're vulnerable, and I'm not gonna let him do that, because I love you, and I know that we can work this out.
Hope: Oh, Liam! (Sighs)
Liam: Look, just--just get-- just come home with me, okay? We'll figure something out.
Thomas: I really think you should leave.
Liam: Thomas, just shut up and stay out of it, will you? I know I screwed up. Just give me one more chance, please? Work with me, Hope. Come home.
