Katie: (Sighs)

Taylor: Katie, I can help you. Please let me do that.

Katie: I don't need your help, Taylor.

Taylor: Yet you're here. You're in my office.

Katie: I told you.

Taylor: It's more than you wanted me to give message to your sister. You don't need me to do that. I think you need me for another reason, and you know what that is.

Katie: I had problems when I first came in here, but I don't anymore. I-I'm taking care of it.

Taylor: How?

Katie: By providing for my son.

Taylor: By leaving him with Bill and hoping Brooke will be a surrogate mother to him? Correct me if I'm wrong- that is the plan, right?

Ramona: Mr. Spencer, we're just about ready.

Bill: Just give me a minute, Ramona.

Ramona: Yes, sir, well, whenever you're ready.

Bill: Of course, it's whenever I'm ready.

Brooke: She was just trying to help.

Bill: Like Alison?

Brooke: Well, at least she knew what you needed.

Bill: What I need isn't the issue. My son needs his mother.

Steffy: I didn't know you took that.

Liam: You wanted me to take that one.

Steffy: Oh, no, no. Wait, wait. I like that one.

Liam: Wait. No.

Steffy: No, no, no, no.

Liam: That one. That's--no, that one you wanted me to take too.

Steffy: Oh.

Liam: Aw.

Steffy: (Laughs)

Liam: Aw. That's it.

Steffy: Okay, now, don't you go posting any of those.

Liam: Oh. Too late.

Steffy: Which ones did you post, the ones of me screaming?

Liam: The good ones, yeah.

Steffy: No, you didn't, because I look so bad in those.

Liam: (Chuckles) You couldn't look bad if you tried.

Steffy: Mm. Thank you. He's such a good baby. (Sighs)

Liam: Think he senses anything?

Steffy: You mean, all the drama?

Liam: I mean, babies pick up that stuff, right?

Steffy: Yeah. But... (Sighs)

Liam: But what?

Steffy: Look, I-I hate to admit it... but Brooke's been incredible. She's been incredible with your dad. She's been incredible with the baby. I don't think Will feels neglected at all.

Bill: G.P.S., Bubba?

Bubba: Check.

Bill: Radio

Bubba: Check.

Bill: All right, Brooke, you ready to go?

Brooke: So you've really done this before?

Bill: Oh, yeah, at least twice.

Brooke: What?

Bill: Relax, Brooke. I've flown more times than I can count

Brooke: (Laughs) You know, you're full of surprises, Dollar Bill.

Bill: (Western accent) Around these parts, ma'am, they call me Wild Bill.

Brooke: Yee-haw.

Bill: (Chuckles)

Ramona: Mr. Spencer, do you need a briefing?

Bill: (Normal voice) No, I'm good, Ramona. Uh, what are the winds aloft?

Ramona: Uh, light and variable up to about 18,000 feet.

Bill: All right, sounds good.

Ramona: Well, you're good to go then. Have fun. See you, Brooke.

Brooke: Thanks.

Bill: Ready to fly, Brooke?

Brooke: Let's do it. (Sighs)

Bill: All right.

Brooke: I'm a little nervous, though. (Giggles)

Liam: You're getting better at this.

Steffy: You think?

Liam: Yeah, a work in progress definitely.

Steffy: Yeah. I'm starting to be a little less afraid that he'll break.

Liam: (Laughs)

Steffy: (Laughs)

Will: (Fusses)

Liam: It's amazing, isn't I? I mean, he's so little and helpless. And I think he feels really secure in your arms.

Steffy: Really?

Liam: Yeah, really, I do.

Steffy: Yeah, I-think he feels secure.

Liam: It's good practice, you and the kid.

Steffy: I'm gonna need a lot more practice before--

Liam: I know. I'd--I'm totally kidding. Like, some day.

Steffy: Some day. Yeah.

Liam: Some day. (Chuckles)

Steffy: Well, you weren't doing that well in the diaper department, mister.

Liam: I know. I know. You did great, though.

Steffy: Oh. Next time it's your turn.

Liam: Uh, yeah, I think my dad and Brooke are gonna get home before that time comes so..

Steffy: Keep hoping.

Liam: (Sighs)

Taylor: Katie, you're in pain. I can feel it. You can't hide it from me.

Katie: It's been a hard time but--but I'm dealing with it. I'm making a life for myself.

Taylor: Where are you staying?

Katie: I-I'm not gonna tell you that, Taylor.

Taylor: Everything you're saying here is confidential.

Katie: I-don't need therapy, okay? I'm--I'm fine. I'm--I'm happy.

Taylor: No, you're not happy. You're running away from your family and--and your child.

Katie: I can't be a mother to him.

Taylor: Yes, you can. You can be a mother to him, a very good one if you could get a handle on your depression. I've helped a lot of women with postpartum depression. It doesn't have to feel this overwhelming. You're a strong woman. You can get beyond this. You can get your life back.

Will: (Fusses)

Liam: Do you even realize what you just said about Brooke?

Steffy: I couldn't believe those words actually came out of my mouth.

Liam: But you meant them.

Steffy: Yeah. She and my dad are split up. Her sister's run off, and here she is, trying to take care of Will, trying to take care of your father.

Liam: And not even hassling us.

Steffy: Yeah, that's really weird.

Liam: (Laughs) Well, maybe she's accepting it.

Steffy: Mm. I don't know. I think she's gonna waive the old Hope flag in front of your nose before she goes.

Liam: I don't-- don't think so, Steffy. She's seems pretty focused. And this whole thing with Stephanie is weighing her down.

Steffy: It's weighing on all of us, Liam.

Liam: Her party's coming up.

Steffy: Yeah. Yeah. Right when we get back to L.A. (Sighs) My grandmother. What a woman, you know I'm glad to be her namesake. Maybe I can help keep a little bit of Stephanie in this world.

Liam: Oh, you will. (Chuckles)

Steffy: I hope so.

Liam: (Sighs) There's so much going on right now.

Steffy: You really think Katie's gonna leave Will and your dad?

Liam: She kind of already has.

Steffy: But permanently? She's crazy about your dad. I can't see Bill with anyone else.

Liam: Yeah, me, neither, but... where is she?

Katie: Thank you.

Taylor: Want to take a seat?

Katie: (Sighs) On the couch?

Taylor: Or the chair.

Katie: Listen, I know you want to help, but I don't need help.

Taylor: What do you need?

Katie: I need to be by myself and as far away from Bill and the baby as I can get.

Taylor: You feel isolated, inadequate as a mother, guilty, like a failure. You're afraid for yourself and your baby. Katie, those are all classic symptoms of postpartum depression.

Katie: I don't have that.

Taylor: A lot of women say the exact same thing. That's very common.

Katie: I'm just not cut out to be a mother. A lot of women are like that, and I'm one of them.

Taylor: Have you always felt like that, even before you had the baby? You went through a life-changing experience okay? And you almost died in the process. That's nothing to be ashamed of.

Katie: I'm-I'm not ashamed. I'm dealing with this the only way I know how. I want my son to have a wonderful fulfilling life, and I can't give that to him, but someone else can. I'm making it happen. I'm not changing my mind about this.

Brooke: (Sighs)

Bill: (Chuckles) Brooke, relax, you're safe.

Brooke: Oh.

Bill: You can trust me. This isn't my fist rodeo.

Brooke: Okay. (Chuckles)

Brooke: Oh, breathtaking.


Brooke: Ooh.

Bill: (Chuckles)

Brooke: (Sighs)

Bill: It's just a little shift in wind. No worries.

Brooke: Are you sure?

Bill: I'm sure. You're in very good hands, Brooke.

Liam: Come on, you can't see it?

Steffy: Weekly lunches with Brooke and me.

Liam: (Chuckles)

Steffy: Oh, the altitude's got to be getting to you.

Liam: And you said that you two used to be close.

Steffy: Yeah, that was a long time ago, Liam. Hope and I were kids. Look, I admire what Brooke is doing. I admire that she's taking care of Will, and she's taking care of your father but that's as far as it goes.

Liam: Steffy, would it be so bad if you two got along?

Steffy: You're serious?

Liam: Less drama.

Steffy: The Logans thrive on drama. You know, and look at Katie, and she's the sanest of the bunch.

Liam: Yeah, or so we thought. (Sighs)

Steffy: What could be going on with her?

Liam: I don't know. It's bizarre.

Steffy: Your poor father.

Liam: Man, if she doesn't come back.. (Sighs)

Steffy: Hey. You don't worry about your father. He survived a long time without Katie.

Liam: Yeah, but they didn't have a kid, Steffy.

Will: (Fuses)

Steffy: Hey, hey, look at me. Look at me. He has you. And you have me.

Katie: I'll be fine.

Taylor: You're in denial, Katie.

Katie: No. I am taking control of my life. I am taking control of my child's life even Bill's. I am dealing with this in the only way I know how. I am not unstable. You're just seeing the person I am now.

Taylor: No, what I'm seeing is a woman who's gone through some very traumatic abrupt changes. You wanted this baby. You fought to have him against all odds, and I know you love your husband. You dragged him in here once for therapy. That's how much your marriage meant to you. And now you want to just throw it all away for--for what? For what reason? I-I don't even think you understand.

Katie: Because I'm a terrible mother, because I can't connect with my son. I can't give him what he needs.

Taylor: You said it was because you were afraid that you were going to die and leave him motherless.

Katie: That's my reality. My heart transplant was real. My heart attack was real.

Taylor: But you're also alive. All I keep hearing you say is that you have this constant fear that-that death is lurking around the corner.

Katie: It is! For me, it is.

Taylor: And so now you just want to refuse to live? You want to refuse to live any of the time you might have left because you might die?

Katie: (Sighs)

Taylor: Do you understand how counterproductive that is, Katie? Katie, I'm telling you, if it goes on like this, if you let this go on...

Katie: What? Go ahead. Say it.

Taylor: Your depression can turn into postpartum psychosis. You could become a threat to others and yourself. I know you don't want to hear that, but that's reality. That's what can happen. You need to get a handle on this, Katie. Let me help you.

Brooke: (Sighs) This is so breathtaking.

Bill: Pretty decent view?

Brooke: This is amazing.

Bill: It's freedom.

Liam: We'll be heading home soon.

Steffy: Kind of hard to leave Aspen, huh?

Liam: I know. So many memories.

Steffy: Mm-hmm. You still owe me that trip to Hawaii, by the way.

Liam: Oh, my God. So high-maintenance.

Steffy: Oh, yeah, that's me. Get used to it.

Liam: (Sighs)

Steffy: (Chuckles)

Liam: (Chuckles)

Steffy: Look at your face there. (Laughs)

Liam: (Sighs)

(Matthew Tryggestad's "Fly Away" playing)

You know it's over time to shed that weight from your shoulders no use pretending you can't go back or rewrite the ending I know you've seen the warnings long enough it's time to stop falling fly away here's your chance of starting over you can find your way and make it right you say your world's been gray time to paint a life worth living see the colors change inside

Katie: Taylor, I'm not depressed, and I certainly don't have postpartum psychosis. I am not a threat to myself or anyone else. It's what I'm trying to avoid.

Taylor: Katie, you're not thinking clearly.

Katie: (Sighs)

Taylor: You don't know what you're doing.

Katie: You're wrong, Taylor. I know exactly what I'm doing.

(Heartbeat thumping)

Katie: (Sighs) (Sniffles)
