Katie: Did I just hear what I think I heard?
Bill: Katie, don't start jumping to conclusions.
Katie: Am I seriously seeing this--this sorry excuse for a man standing in your office?
Bill: Will you listen to me?
Katie: You sent him to Italy? To do what? To traumatize Hope?
Bill: All right, look, I can see why you would misinterpret this loser being here. And why are you here? Oh, the convict's looking for money. My son says "I do" to your daughter, and you're looking to get paid.
Deacon: (Chuckles) That's completely...
Bill: Well, I'm not giving you anything, pal. You want money? Go see Brooke.
Katie: Don't even bother playing along. I'm sure he's already given you plenty of money. The question is, why? What did my husband ask you to do?
Liam: I knew you loved me.
Liam: So why did you say that you didn't?
Hope: Because I needed to make you stop. I need you to stop trying to make us happen.
Liam: I guess I'll never understand that if we love each other.
Hope: No, Liam, it doesn't matter how much we love each other, because you will never be able to give me your whole heart.
Liam: I can, and I did.
Steffy: So that's where Thorne disappeared, huh?
Steffy: Should've known.
Taylor: He was just being sweet, missing his brother's wedding like that. Then again, Ridge may have sent him over there make sure I wasn't saddling up a horse.
Steffy: Oh, yeah? I think that would be awesome. Next time.
Taylor: Next time?
Taylor: Isn't this the last time?
Steffy: Dad and Brooke?
Taylor: (Sighs) So tell me about the big, glorious event.
Steffy: Um, cake, tears, vows--whatever.
Taylor: So, uh, I think you were pretty wonderful, being there for your father.
Steffy: Thanks. I think so, too.
Taylor: Was Liam there?
Steffy: Uh, yeah.
Taylor: Was he there as your date?
Hope: Maybe if you had been honest with me.
Liam: Yeah, yeah. I was wrong not to tell you what happened with Steffy in Italy...
Liam: And even what went down with your father doesn't excuse it. But every time I haven't been honest with you, it's because I didn't want to hurt you.
Hope: (Scoffs) No, Liam. It's because you don't want to get caught. No, if this was about not hurting me, then you never would have made out with Steffy in the first place. It's as easy as that. And not telling me the whole truth is the exact same thing as lying-- maybe not to a Spencer...
Liam: Okay, what is that?
Liam: "Not to a Spencer"?
Hope: You are just so much more like your father now.
Deacon: First of all, you're glowing. You look great.
Katie: Cut the crap. What did you do to Hope?
Bill: He didn't do anything to Hope.
Katie: I am asking him.
Deacon: Um, nothing. I-I was just trying to reconnect with her.
Katie: And what does my husband have to do with this?
Deacon: Well, he--he got-- he got me out of prison.
Katie: He did?
Deacon: Uh, b-- was it blackmail or -a bribe? I--it doesn't matter. Anyway, I had six years left of my sentence, right? And who comes walking in to the prison but Bill Spencer? The next thing I know... (Italian accent) I'm a headed for Italy, huh? (Normal voice) It was incredible. Unbelievable, right? And my job, all I had to was keep Hope from her wedding, you know? I mean, look, I didn't really want to do it, right? But it was my freedom. And all I had to do was postpone her wedding, so I-I didn't really think it was that big a deal. Besides that, I-I didn't know about the letter until today.
Steffy: I don't want you to worry about Liam and me, what we're calling ourselves, whether we're friends or we're dating.
Taylor: Well, I'll do more than worry if I start to think he's using you.
Steffy: Oh, he's not.
Taylor: You're always there for him, Steffy, day or night.
Steffy: And he would be, too, if the situation were reversed. Yeah, he is going through a difficult time, but I'm gonna be his friend, and I'm gonna give him love and support. And I'm just gonna be there for him. I think I'll be fine with whatever happens next.
Liam: My dad's been there for me. He's been encouraging me.
Liam: And maybe on some subconscious level... I don't know.
Hope: You are. You're a lot like him now. And that's not necessarily a bad thing. I mean, girls like Steffy really go for that, so...
Liam: Hey, come on.
Hope: Hey, act how you want. It's--it's not my business. And I understand trying to please your father. He came to see me today.
Hope: He just showed up... out of nowhere, like... (scoffs) like on our wedding day.
Liam: What did he want?
Hope: He heard about us. He wanted to check up on me. He said he blames himself for what happened. Well, he thinks if he hadn't shown up, then we'd be married right now.
Liam: Well, the man's not wrong. We would be. We'd be happy.
Hope: Would we? Or would you still be having your fantasies about Steffy? You know, not sure if you made the right choice about Steffy. Because you clearly weren't sure the night before our wedding.
Liam: That's not true. I knew exactly who I wanted and couldn't have: You.
Katie: All these years and you had no contact with Hope.
Deacon: Wait a minute, that's not exactly true. I tried while I was still living in L.A, but the funniest thing -- your sister did not exactly encourage my involvement.
Katie: What kind of man does something like this to his own daughter? Brooke was right to keep you away from Hope.
Deacon: I know who I am. I got no delusions about there being any good in me, but I tell ya something. I have good kids. I have a good daughter. I'm proud of Hope and the sensitive, articulate woman that she is. And I knew that if I stuck around, somehow I would do something to poison that, so you know what? I'm glad I left.
Katie: So now what? She's an adult, so you don't feel bad messing her up?
Deacon: Gee, I don't know, Katie. Um, a choice between, gosh, six more years in prison, or seeing my daughter? I'm sure that doesn't make any sense to you.
Katie: None of this does.
Deacon: Katie, I saw her press conference on the Internet. All I saw was my child is miserable, and I just, I-- thought, maybe, I-- I don't know.
Katie: What-- what, you-- you could finally act like a father?
Deacon: Is that so wrong? Yeah, I just-- I thought that maybe, finally, I could do something worthwhile.
Katie: You've only done that once, when you walked away. Do it again.
Katie: Go. Walk way and don't come back. Be the kind of father you were meant to be.
Bill: You heard the lady, snitch. She's gotten everything she needs from you, now get the Hell out. Out! Are you able to listen, or are you walking out, too?
Taylor: I am very proud of you, Steffy. You know, Liam needs to realize that his life would be so much better with you in it. You have so much strength, and you're so grown up, and you're mature. The thing is, it's very unlikely for a person to change after having a heart being so divided for so long.
Steffy: Yeah, but there's been a change in Liam after Hope told him it was over. He's just been really different. He's been...colder and--and it's all about his business.
Taylor: Cold and businesslike? That sounds like his father Bill, not Liam. (Laughs)
Steffy: (Chuckles) I'm not too worried about it. It's probably just a reaction to everything that's happening. But hey, you know, whatever it takes to get you back on your feet. I just hope he goes back to the old Liam.
Taylor: And then he'll come back to his old wife.
Hope: I told him not to blame himself. I mean, that note changed a lot, but... it took a lot more than a couple words from him to get us to where we are now.
Liam: Yeah, well, I'm glad he came back. I know how much he means to you.
Hope: I hope he'll stay awhile. Uh, I think he feels safe seeing me because my mom's out of town.
Liam: Well, you know, maybe Brooke can learn to accept him if he loves you and wants to be a father to you, show you that he intends to do good.
Hope: He's doing that. It's all I ever wanted: to know my real father. I just never thought that it would cost me you.
Bill: I'm not Deacon, Katie. I won't just disappear and never see our son again, if that's what you're thinking.
Katie: I don't know what I'm thinking. I don't know how you could do something like this.
Bill: I love my son. How could I not--
Katie: What about our son? What about our family? Do you have any idea what you've done? You have brought this man into our lives. You've committed a crime for him. What happens when he shows up here, and he wants something from you? You have made us beholden to him, and for what? For what, Bill? So Hope wouldn't marry Liam? What happens when Deacon Sharpe wants to take us all down with him?
Bill: I would never let that happen.
Katie: How can you say that? You have handed him all the power. You have no idea what he's capable of. You don't know anything. You are so obsessed with your grown son's love life, with your grown son's maturity level. "Making him into a man!" Well, is this what a man does, Bill? Sacrificing one family for another? You have jeopardized everything we have. You have jeopardized our son's entire future. Tell me something. Who's going to teach our son how to be a man when his mother is dead, and his father's in jail?
Bill: Don't even say something like that!
Katie: I will tell you something, Bill Spencer. I will not let you do this to our child. I will not let you turn him into an angry, brooding, carbon copy of yourself. I swear to you, as long as I have breath in my body, I will protect him from you.
Taylor: Well, I-- I'm curious about this, um, this behavior change in Liam.
Steffy: I don't want you to blow it out of proportion. It's probably something most people wouldn't even notice.
Taylor: Well, I don't know about that. Would you say that he's trying to emulate his father?
Steffy: I don't know. Maybe. We had dinner with Katie and Bill, and Bill took it as an opportunity to really drill it into Liam what it means to be a Spencer, what it means to be a real man. It's really nothing new from Bill, but Liam, he was-- he was really listening, and that's when I started to see this change.
Taylor: Did you ever tell him what his father did?
Steffy: You mean about Italy?
Taylor: About how he caused that whole nightmare and helped Deacon get there in the first place?
Steffy: Well, I don't see what good it would do.
Taylor: Maybe it'd make him want to think twice about being more like his father.
Liam: I won't hurt you again.
Hope: You wouldn't mean to, but you would.
Liam: (Sighs) I just-- I want you to know that I get how badly I screwed up because you're the best thing that ever came into my life.
Liam: Before you, I-- I was (Laughs) I was-- you know, I lost my mom, and you helped me find my dad. You remember that?
Hope: (Laughs) Mm-hmm.
Liam: Uh, yeah, sure, I hated him at first, but somehow you gave me the will and the determination, and the patience (Sighs) to get to know the guy. And little by little, it started to happen because of you. Because you are always there, always loving me, telling me never to give up. You saw something in me that I didn't see, and then I hurt you. I hurt you, and hurt you. But it did seem like you were about forgive me for that stupid, crazy night, and then, all of a sudden, you told me it was over. Why? Why? I don't-- (Sighs) Hope, what changed?
Hope: I guess I changed. I couldn't do it. It just shouldn't be this hard.
Katie: The lengths you would go to. This--this twisted vision you have of what it means to be a father.
Bill: I will do anything for my family, and that's a good thing.
Katie: You know what the worst part is? Is that everything you've done is for nothing because Liam will hate you when he finds out.
Bill: That was a chance I was willing to take. I did what I had to do, and I will protect our son the same way.
Katie: You mean you will control him. You will make him do what you want him to do. Well, I won't let you, Bill. For as long as I'm able, I won't let you.
Bill: You will feel differently when you are actually holding him in your arms. You can't know that yet -- the need to protect your child.
Katie: You have no idea what I'm feeling. What do you think I've been doing for all of these months? Feeling him grown and movie. I have been protecting him from day one, and I will continue to protect him from harm comes his way, even if it comes from his own father.
Bill: Will you stop talking like that?
Katie: I can't believe that I would have a baby with a man who would put his family in this kind of position, that you would risk our entire future just so you can be right. I don't even know who you are.
Bill: I'm the same man you married.
Katie: (Breathing heavily)
Bill: All right, now you've gotta calm down.
Katie: (Laughs) I should calm down? Wait till you see how Liam reacts.
Bill: Liam doesn't have to know about this. No one has to know
Katie: The truth comes out, Bill. It always does.
Bill: Wh--what--what are saying, Katie? What, you want me locked up? Is that how you're going to- to protect your son from me? You want to see me in jail?
Katie: It doesn't matter what I want. This is the position that you have put us in. You did this. You opened this door. You've been trying to teach Liam how to be a man. Well, he is gonna see exactly what kind of man you are-- (Groans) Everyone is gonna see what kind of father you are-- (Groans)
Katie: Oh, God.
Bill: Katie, what's wrong?
Bill: Katie. Katie!
Katie: Oh, my God, no. (Breathing heavily) Bill--Bill, no.
