Bill: All right. I have a little surprise for you. How about some port?

Liam: When have you ever known me to drink port?

Bill: Tonight. Take a look at that label.

Liam: "40." I-I don't--

Bill: 40-year tawny port-- older than you are.

Liam: (Scoffs) not now. How long has this night been?

Bill: And I just happened to have a perfect accompaniment.

Katie: Oh, no, you are not smoking that thing in here.

Bill: Take it.

Liam: Um, no, thank you. I don't--I don't smoke.

Bill: Who asked you?

Liam: I-- Dad, I don't want it.

Bill: Damn it, son. When a man offers you a cigar, you accept it. You take it from his hand and say "Thank you.

Steffy: Bill, enough. Stop picking on Liam.

Liam: Thank you.

Bill: That's my boy.

Hope: (Sighs) I hate press conferences, and I don't care who knows it.

Thomas: Then don't any more.

Hope: (Sighs)

Thomas: Look, if you stop feeding the press, then they'll just go away. That's what happened to me.

Hope: Mm.

Thomas: Have you had dinner?

Hope: Hmm? Oh.

Thomas: You haven't.

Hope: No, I-I don't want to go out. I just keep thinking about.

Thomas: I know.

Hope: Liam and Steffy and the dinner that they're having.

Thomas: Look, I was just thinking that I could grab some sandwiches and I could bring them back here. I remember what you like.

Hope: Thank you. (Chuckles)

Thomas: You're welcome. I'll be right back.

Hope: Okay.

Thomas: Hey, I was just heading out. Do you need anything?

Rick: Uh, no, thank you.

Thomas: All right.

Hope: He is being so good to me.

Rick: He really likes you.

Hope: I cannot think that way about anybody right now.

Rick: Come on. Are you really gonna mind if he thinks that way about you?

Hope: Thomas is a great guy. He's funny and handsome and kind, but I'm just-- I'm not ready.

Rick: Oh, you will be soon.

Hope: Mm, you can say that. I cannot.

Rick: Well, life just happens whether you're ready or not.

(Door opens)

Rick: Well, the master of the dignified entrance.

Ridge: You.

Hope: We were just talking.

Ridge: And I was just looking for you.

Rick: Well, here I am in my father's old office.. Or your office. I'm out of here.

Hope: (Sighs)

Ridge: Rick, wait, wait.

Rick: (Sighs)

Ridge: Look, um, I am getting married, and I need a best man.

Rick: (Scoffs)

Bill: Where's your ashtray?

Katie: Um, uh, you are not smoking that in the house around me and my unborn child.

Bill: You see how it is. Women will always try and control you. What you must remember is you can never let them succeed. Now shall we take the air and leave them to their own devices?

Liam: All right.

Steffy: Is this what brainwashing looks like?

Katie: (Nods her head)

Ridge: Rick, this isn't a plot against your life or your bank account. I just want to make your mother happy.

Rick: You mean, after making her miserable for decades?

Ridge: Her son and daughter standing up for us. Is that really so sinister?

Hope: Hey, of course, I'll do it. (Sighs)

Ridge: Thank you, sweetie. Thank you.

Hope: You're welcome.

Ridge: But please let Brooke ask you, okay?

Hope: Okay.

Ridge: Okay

Rick: Hey, you've got your own son. Ask him.

Ridge: I'm sure he has other plans.

Rick: Like what? He's going to be watching a flick during your nuptials?

Ridge: No, he's planning on arriving with somebody else. He's still trying to smooth things with Caroline after that dicey press conference event.

Rick: That might be, but I'm sure Thomas would enjoy the joyful occasion of standing up there next to Hope.

Brooke: What is this, a family meeting without me?

Hope: Hi.

Rick: Kind of.

Ridge: Everybody is extremely happy about the wedding.

Brooke: (Sighs) Hope, I've been trying to find you alone. I-I need to talk to you about something.

Hope: Mm.

Brooke: Ridge already knows, and I guess it's okay if Rick knows, too. I need to ask you a very big favor.

Hope: What's that, Mom?

Bill: Wrapper off. There you go. You see this? This is how you will cut the tip of your cigar. Slip that over. (Stammers) I-I said the tip. You're gonna cut your cigar in half. There you go. Quick, sharp, and clean. Uh, well, you'll get the hang of it. See this? We're gonna practice. You'll definitely get the hang of it.

Liam: Damn it, I'm not gonna get the hang of anything ever.

Bill: Hey, will you stop that? You're not gonna be judged by anybody. You are the equal or better than any man or woman.

Steffy: He's a prize that husband of yours.

Katie: Oh, yeah. He's a real piece of work. You know Liam is still in love with Hope. He's confused, and he's brokenhearted. But Bill is trying to use you to mend it, and that's not really fair, not to you or Liam.

Steffy: You know, there are--are some things that I've-- I've learned the hard way. You know, you-- you may not always win, but if you don't fight, you can't lose. I'm not in competition with Hope, Katie. No, I'm-I'm just here. I'm--I'm here watching Liam eat dinner, spar with his father, knowing exactly what I feel and what I want.

Liam: Suppose you never had to ask yourself how you could screw something so badly.

Bill: Nothing is screwed up but your thinking. Things are the way they are as a result of choices that you made, that you wanted to make. Ergo things are exactly the way you wanted them to be.

Liam: Then why do I feel like such a loser?

Bill: Oh, come on, I hate when you use that word. You feel like crap because, one, you put your trust in the wrong people. Two, you accepted other people's judgment of you. Never do that. They look at you through the filter of what you can do for them. People will say you don't measure up, but you are the measure. You make the rules. Live your life by other people's, and you might as well not have been born. Spend every day being somebody else, and it's a life unlived.

Brooke: Oh, thank you, sweetheart. Having you next to me my wedding-- that means everything to me.

Hope: Oh, Mom, I'm honored.

Rick: Ridge and I had a conversation, too.

Brooke: And?

Rick: I said was honored, of course.

Brooke: (Gasps)

Rick: But, Thomas and I haven't gotten along for so many years, to put it mildly. I just... just felt he should be asked first.

Brooke: Oh, honey, that is so thoughtful of you.

Thomas: Whoa. I should have got more food.

Rick: Thomas is bringing Hope food.

Brooke: Your father has something he wants to ask you.

Ridge: It's about the wedding.

Thomas: I thought you'd never ask.

Brooke: (Chuckles)

Ridge: You don't know what it is yet.

Brooke: Oh, I think he does.

Thomas: I want to be a part of the wedding, especially after the long, checkered history of my relationship to you and Brooke. It would be like healing.

Ridge: Wow. I didn't know you feel that way.

Brooke: And your father thought you might have other plans.

Thomas: Well, I think Caroline will understand.

Bill: Better?

Katie: Yes. I hate it when you smell like those things, and our son really hates it.

Bill: Mm. How's your back?

Katie: Fine.

Bill: How are your cankles? (Grunts)

Katie: You mention my cankles one more time, and you're sleeping on the couch.

Bill: I will not mention your cankles again.

Katie: (Sighs) You know, you keep saying that Hope and Liam will never work, but can't the same thing be said for Liam and Steffy? He always chooses something else.

Bill: (Sighs) But why? Because he's been brainwashed into thinking it's the good and right thing to do.

Katie: (Sighs)

Bill: You know, I'm not trying to connect Liam and Steffy. I'm trying to connect my son to himself.

Katie: No. You are trying to change him. You're trying to turn him into you.

Bill: (Sighs)

Steffy: How was it?

Liam: Only slightly less toxic than I thought.

Steffy: I wish that were the same for your father.

Liam: Yeah, well... he loves me.

Steffy: Mm, yes. Those three words. Well, let's not forget these three words-- "antisocial personality disorder."

Liam: (Laughs) You know, I'm sure what that means, but it sure sounds like him.

Steffy: Look, uh, I did what I could in the kitchen.

Liam: Thank you, and--and, I'm.. sorry you got dragged into this.

Steffy: Hey, nobody has to twist my arm into having your back, all right?

Liam: (Sighs) I think part of his point is that, you know, what other people call a disorder is really the secret to his success.

Steffy: Is his success really what you want for yourself-- more money than you could ever spend, hundreds of lackeys too terrified to say anything but, "Yes, sir. No, sir"? And then there's Katie.

Liam: He's right about one thing, though. I put too much stock into what other people think of me.

Steffy: If that were true, then I think we would be together, knowing how I think and feel about you. And we're not.

Bill: I'm trying to toughen Liam up. Is that so terrible?

Katie: Maybe it is.

Bill: Katie, you cannot let the world wipe its feet all over you the way Liam does. Listen, I'm sorry, but I hate what your niece has done to him.

Katie: (Sighs)

Bill: She has kicked him to the curb and reeled him back. She has lied, popped pills, issued ultimatums, and dumped him at the altar. Is it any wonder he's shell-shocked, afraid of his own shadow?

Katie: So you think teaching him indifference is the answer?

Bill: Yes.

Katie: (Chuckles) Oh, sometimes, my love, your lack of self-knowledge just absolutely floors me.

Bill: (Sighs)

Katie: You think you're this rough and tough badass who doesn't need anybody, who's only out for himself. And yet, if you woke up tomorrow and the baby and I were gone, would you just shrug it off?

Bill: What'd you say? Don't ever say something like that again. Don't even whisper it.

Katie: Okay.

Bill: Because if that happened, Katie, I'll begin to train myself to live without you.

Katie: No, you would not. I don't believe that for a second. I trust you too much.

Bill: And I trust you with my life. If I didn't... a man has to learn to be self-protective, and that's what I'm trying to teach my son.

Liam: You know, I've disappointed you, too.

Steffy: Stop. I have no regrets. I'm not upset about anything. I'm just sorry that you're so unhappy.

Liam: We were pretty happy most of the time.

Steffy: Yeah, we were and some good memories and moments. You just thought you-- you needed something else.

Liam: (Sighs) Boy, did I screw that up.

Steffy: I'm sorry. But you're gonna have to share the blame. We both messed up, Liam.

Hope: Thank you very much for dinner. (Clears throat)

Thomas: You're full already?

Hope: Yeah. Did you want the rest of my quesadilla?

Thomas: No.

Hope: Okay.

Thomas: That's okay. You know, it's gonna be kind of cool being in our parents' wedding together.

Hope: Yeah.

Thomas: You know, there was a time that I, uh, I didn't think you were ever gonna forgive for a certain lie that I told about Brooke

Hope: Um, well, I think I have become a little bit of a liar since then.

Thomas: You?

Hope: Believe it or not, I told Liam that I don't love him.

Liam: She doesn't love me.

Steffy: What?

Liam: Hope, that's--that's what she said-- she doesn't love me.

Steffy: She didn't mean it.

Liam: I don't know. She was pretty convincing. You know, my dad's not wrong. I should be more aggressive, more decisive. You know, I've been spending all my time trying to win back my wife when she clearly doesn't want to be with me. I just need to man up, you know? I'm a Spencer. I need to be macho and eat steak and drink port and smoke cigars, then conquer every woman in the world, because that's what we do in this family, right?

Steffy: (Chuckles)

Liam: You are so beautiful. And you're always here by my side, even though you could have any man in the world.

Steffy: A Spencer boys' club shouldn't be what you base your decisions on. You want me? Or do you want to give Hope another shot? Either way, you are your own man-- kind... and considerate and cute.

Liam: (Laughs)

Steffy: And that's why I like you.

Liam: (Laughs)

Steffy: Mm.

Liam: (Sighs)

Steffy: You know what? Um... you were just about to marry Hope again. So I don't-- I don't expect you to jump in the sack with me right away.

Liam: (Laughs)

Steffy: (Laughs) Even though I would-- I would kind of like that. But I think you're coming around. And when you do, we will have the greatest love affair known to mankind.

Liam: Is that so?

Steffy: Yes, that's so. (Chuckles) And it's just about to begin. (Giggles)
