Bill: Katie's gone, moved out--unbelievable.
Brooke: Where would she go? She must have some sort of plan.
Bill: Well, she didn't share that info with me, Brooke.
Brooke: (Sighs) This is so unlike Katie. We have to find her.
Bill: I'm gonna call Justin.
(Cell phone rings)
Justin: (Sighs) Hey, Bill, what's up? Did you find Katie?
Bill: No. Her cell phone's in Aspen but no Katie. She's back in L.A. or somewhere.
Justin: What is her phone doing in Aspen?
Bill: She knew I'd track her so somehow she got it here.
Justin: Okay, so where is she?
Bill: I don't know were she is, Justin, or I wouldn't be calling you. She's cleared her stuff out of the house. I need you to find her.
Katie: Yes, I'm calling to arrange an excursion for today in Aspen. Sure (Sighs) I'll hold.
Bill: Go to her personal folder, Justin. It'll have her credit cards in it, her driver's license, everything you need to find her.
Justin: Okay, I'm on it, Bill.
Bill: All right, well, make it fast, and call me as soon as you have something.
Steffy: Thank you so much...
Liam: Whoo (laughs)
Steffy: For kicking us out.
Liam: We actually went paragliding.
Steffy: Uh, it was amazing.
Liam: Hey. What's going on?
Bill: Katie moved out.
Steffy: Oh, no.
Liam: Uh, wait. How did you find that?
Bill: Donna called. She was over there. All of Katie's stuff is gone.
Liam: What? She didn't leave a note or--or anything like that?
Bill: No, no note. I have no idea where she is.
Liam: Dad, I'm sorry. I'm really sorry.
Bill: Thanks, Son.
Liam: All right. So now what?
Bill: (Sighs) I've got Justin on it. By the time we get back, I hope he'll know something.
Steffy: You're leaving?
Bill: As soon as possible.
Liam: Well, I mean, you-- you know, it's gonna take Justin some time to track her down.
Bill: And I want to be there when he does.
Liam: All right, you, uh, you don't want to like, take a little break first? I mean...
Bill: What do you mean, a break?
Steffy: Liam's right. Why don't you just get out, walk around, and just try to relax?
Bill: I can't relax. I have no idea where my wife is. She's out there somewhere.
Liam: Dad, Dad, it's not gonna make a difference if you just take, like, an hour or two to cool off.
Bill: How could Katie leave us this way? How could she abandon her family?
Taylor: (Gasps) Katie I have been so worried about you.
Katie: Well, as you can see, I'm fine.
Taylor: Where have you been? Your husband is looking for you in Aspen.
Katie: Yes, I know, with Brooke.
Taylor: Why did you send him on that wild goose chase?
Katie: Because I needed time to think.
Taylor: Well, have you?
Katie: Yes. And I want you to get a message to my sisters, especially Brooke. I want you to tell them that I'm fine, and that they don't need to worry about me.
Taylor: Let's call them. Let's call them right now.
Katie: No. No. That's not part of the plan.
Taylor: The plan?
Katie: If I call them, they will want me to come back, and I have no intention of doing that.
Bill: Hey, how's he doing?
Brooke: Great! You have a very good baby. As far as Will is concerned, life couldn't be peachier.
Bill: Hmm. Because of you. Thank you, Brooke.
Brooke: My pleasure.
Bill: Why don't we pack up and get going?
Liam: Hey, Pop, someone's here to see you.
Bill: Oliver, how the hell did you find out I was here?
Oliver: Our office got a call from your office.
Oliver: No, it was a woman.
Bill: A woman? What did she want?
Liver: To confirm the arrangements.
Bill: What arrangements?
Oliver: For the excursion you planned.
Bill: I didn't plan -- do you know something about this?
Liam: I have no idea.
Bill: What excursion?
Oliver: The hot air balloon ride.
Bill: I'm not taking a balloon up now.
Brooke: A hot air balloon.
Bill: I don't have time, and I'm not in the mood.
Liam: Uh, Dad, maybe Brooke would like to.
Bill: Would you?
Brooke: I've only been once before. It might be kind of fun.
Bill: (Sighs) Okay, then, you guys are on babysitting duty. Can you handle that?
Bill: Can you handle that?
Liam: Dad--yes, Dad, yes.
Bill: All right. Let's go.
Oliver: Use sunscreen, right altitude, high S.P.F.-- 80 at least.
Liam: So looks like we've got the place all to ourselves.
Steffy: Not exactly. We have a baby.
Liam: Well, not yet we don't. (Chuckles)
Steffy: Oh. (Chuckles)
Taylor: Wow. So, uh, so you're leaving your husband and your baby?
Katie: Please, don't make it sound like I'm a horrible person.
Taylor: I'm not judging you. I'm just restating what you said to me.
Katie: Okay, maybe I am a little defensive.
Taylor: I don't know why you should be. I mean, you said this is what you truly want.
Katie: This is what I want.
Taylor: You don't have to convince me. You don't need my approval.
Katie: Then why do I feel like I do?
Taylor: Well, the need for approval usually means that you don't approve of something yourself, your behavior, and you look for it-- some affirmation from someone else.
Katie: This hasn't been easy for me.
Taylor: Why not?
Katie: Because I'm leaving my child and my husband, the two people I love most in the world. Of--of course, it's not easy.
Taylor: Well, I-I don't know why that bothers you, if that's what you say you want.
Katie: Uh, okay, maybe itís not exactly what I want. It's--it's what I have to do. My life is going to end prematurely- maybe tomorrow, maybe next week, maybe a year from now- who knows, but by that time, Will would be attached to me, and I'm not going to leave him when he needs me the most. I'm not going to do that to him.
Taylor: You don't believe he needs you already?
Katie: He hasn't bonded with me. This is what's best. He can-he and start his life with... with someone else.
Taylor: Your sister.
Katie: Brooke adores him. She's the perfect mother.
Taylor: (Sighs) Have you talked to Brooke about it? Is--is she on board with this?
Katie: She's my sister. Of course, she'll be there for Will.
Taylor: That's a big assumption.
Katie: Things have been happening so quickly I-I haven't had a chance to discuss everything with her.
Taylor: Yes, that's exactly right. Things have been happening very fast. You've been through a lot of changes. You--you gave birth prematurely. You've had a heart attack. You've had surgery, everything-- it's very overwhelming.
Katie: I'm dealing with it.
Taylor: No, you're not dealing with it. You're reacting to it. And those reactions are symptomatic.
Katie: Of what?
Taylor: Depression-- severe postpartum depression.
Liam: All right. All right. You put the kid to sleep. I'll give you that. What does that prove, though?
Steffy: That he totally loves me.
Liam: Or he's totally bored with you.
Steffy: Okay, wise guy. How do you account for his crying when you picked him up?
Liam: Fear, Baby. I'm his big brother. He's supposed to be afraid of me. That's the rule.
Steffy: Hey. Hey. You watch what you say. We're gonna have one of those one day.
Liam: Just one?
Steffy: For starters.
Liam: Boy or girl?
Steffy: A girl. I can only handle one boy at a time.
Liam: Oh, but you handle him so well.
Steffy: Oh. (Chuckles)
Liam: I have never seen my dad this stressed.
Steffy: Yeah, I know.
Steffy: Well, you know, maybe this adventure will relax him. I hope so, even if it's with Brooke.
Katie: I am not depressed. A depressed person does not have control over her life. I have complete control over mine.
Taylor: Well, I've-- I've seen you pretty upset and overwhelmed and having panic attacks.
Katie: That was before.
Taylor: Before what? Before you ran away from your husband and your family and me and everybody else?
Katie: I had to leave. They would have tried to stop me.
Taylor: So what is this feeling about wanting to run way? What are you running from?
Taylor: Danger to whom?
Katie: To my baby, to Bill.
Taylor: Bill loves you. He's your husband. Your baby needs you.
Katie: They'll both be better off without me.
Taylor: Katie, listen to me. A lot of women, they get some form of postpartum depression after they give birth. And there are treatments for that.
Katie: That would be fine if I was depressed, but I'm not.
Taylor: Your body went through a lot of changes when you were pregnant and when you gave birth. Do you have any idea how those hormone levels changed?
Katie: My child needs a mother. I am incapable of being a mother to him.
Taylor: Your baby was born, and then you went through a lot of different things, your heart attack, the surgery. It--I was huge. It was a huge shot to your system, and I know that's why you're struggling right now.
Katie: If I can't bond with my child, then what good am I?
Taylor: (Sighs) With depression, the biggest trap is feeling that you shouldn't be and that you have no right to be. That's what you're up against here. That's why you feel this need to run away--and escape. But I'm telling you, this depression is going to stay with you unless you do something about it. You can't run away from it.
Steffy: I wonder if your dad and Brooke are airborne yet.
Steffy: I mean, itís no paragliding.
Steffy: But at least it gets to take their mind off things.
Steffy: You are full of surprises.
Steffy: You are. I never, ever thought that I would ever see you paragliding.
Liam: And you know something else?
Liam: You were totally scared.
Steffy: No, I wasn't.
Liam: Yes, you were.
Steffy: No, I wasn't. (Chuckles)
Liam: Yes, says the girl who was digging holes into me with her nails.
Steffy: Okay, okay, maybe just a little bit when we jumped off a mountain.
Steffy: My God.
Steffy: Yeah. But it really amazing. It felt great. Me flying over the- the mountains, the trees, and the meadows... totally depending on you for my safety. You really do hold my life in your hands. You do, or at least my happiness. Are you okay with that?
Liam: Well, you are kind of high-maintenance but, uh...
Steffy: No, I'm not. No!
Liam: Not that I mind.
Steffy: I have never been in love like this... ever... with anyone.
Liam: Me either.
Steffy: Now here we are, where it all started... Aspen.
Liam: Even though we kind of thought we'd be on some tropical beach in Hawaii, but you know.
Steffy: What, are you disappointed?
Liam: Not at all. Are you?
Steffy: Not one... tiny... bit.
Ramona: Hello, Mr. Spencer.
Bill: Hi, Ramona. This is Brooke Logan.
Ramona: Ah. Nice to meet you in person.
Brooke: Nice to meet you.
Ramona: Uh, will Katie be joining you here in Aspen?
Bill: No, it, uh, doesn't appear that way.
Ramona: Okay, well, anyway, at least you guys got to enjoy a ride today. I'll tell them you're here. Your balloons are almost ready.
Brooke: It was nice that Alison put this together for you.
Bill: Eh. (Sighs) Too bad Katie isn't here to enjoy it with us.
Brooke: I know.
Taylor: Well, the way I see it, you only have two choices. You can run away from your family and go away someplace and wait to die, or you can face the truth and realize that you do have the classic symptoms of depression.
Katie: My situation is different. My life has been compromised. I am living on borrowed time, and it's pointless to pretend otherwise. I am not going to be plucked out of my son's life at some critical moment.
Taylor: This is a critical moment. This is the most critical time in that baby's life--right now.
Katie: He's in good hands. Bill and Brooke will create a-a wonderful family for him.
Taylor: Your life is slipping away, Katie. You think this is what you want, but it isn't. Your baby... (Sighs) He needs you. Your husband loves you. You love both of them.
Taylor: There are medications for this.
Katie: No. No. I-I am not taking drugs. That's just hiding from the truth.
Taylor: That is the depression talking.
Taylor: You feel hopelessness, anger, frustration, fear, sadness, guilt. I know. I know it's overwhelming. I know that. People have no idea how debilitating postpartum depression can be. Hiding from it isn't gonna make it go away. You're in my office right now, because you know something's wrong. Katie, we can make this feeling go away. Let me help you. Okay? I can help you recover. Just let me help you.
