Liam: Uh, Hope, that was...
Liam: Uh... what--what--what was that, exactly?
Hope: I never should have doubted you, Liam. (Sighs) And I never will again.
Thomas: Well, look who's finally back.
Steffy: I'm sorry. I was taking care of something.
Thomas: Was there a problem with the Intimates line?
Steffy: Huge. It turns out I wasn't wearing anything from the Intimates line when I just saw Liam now.
Taylor: (Sighs) Is he back from his trip?
Steffy: Back where he belongs-- with me.
Pam: Aren't you gonna play something?
Eric: No. (Sighs) I smell pot roast.
Pam: Yes, you do. Mother's recipe. So, uh, I put up a few decorations. (Chuckles)
Eric: Yeah. Yeah. It's nice, Pam. Thank you. It's--it's nice.
Pam: Do you remember where Steph usually puts this one?
Eric: Put it-- uh, put it down here somewhere.
Eric: Pam, did you do what I asked you to do?
Pam: I really wish that you'd reconsider, Eric.
Eric: No, I know. Sorry.
Pam: Christmas Eve-- you can't just--
Eric: Pam, it's what I want.
Pam: I know, but the family, Eric. They--
Rick: Hello? Wow, look at this place.
Eric: The family will be fine. Hey.
Rick: Decorations--yeah, wow, look at this, Dad.
Eric: I know, huh? Pam is making certain that I'm in a festive mood.
Eric: You're home early.
Rick: Well, uh, yeah. Look, it's, uh--it's been a busy day. And we're not done. We're gonna head over to the guesthouse, keep brainstorming ideas about the showdown.
Caroline: Yes, we, uh, we're trying to avoid prying eyes at the office.
Rick: But we thought we'd stop by and say "Hello."
Eric: Brainstorming-- is that what they're calling it these days?
Pam: Eric! (Laughs)
Pam: Hey, how would you two like to stay for dinner? I'm making pot roast.
Rick: Yeah, that sounds good.
Caroline: Yeah, do you want us to help with the cooking or set the table?
Eric: Caroline, stop it.
Pam: No, no, no.
Eric: No, no. You don't need to do that, please, now, okay? I appreciate you coming over, both of you, but, uh, you can see that I'm doing fine, right? So go ahead. You just go do what young people do.
Rick: Dad, you don't need to put a brave face on for us. It's your first Christmas without Stephanie, and its okay to lean on family.
Eric: Thanks, Buddy. Thanks, Son.
Thomas: While you've been busy catching up with your boyfriend, we've been concentrating on work.
Steffy: Thomas, I wasn't gone that long.
Thomas: Look, Steffy, we got to concentrate on winning this competition.
Taylor: You will.
Thomas: I'm not spending the rest of my career answering to Rick.
Steffy: It's not gonna happen. I'm not worried about competing against Rick or Hope in anything.
Liam: Doubted me? What--
Hope: Liam, Liam, I made a huge mistake. The night before our wedding, yes, you went out, you partied, but that--that was it. I thought you cheated on me. I thought that you were making out with Steffy.
Liam: You thought I-- making out with-- what--what--
Hope: Yes, Liam.
Liam: Why do you think that?
Hope: Liam, the deejay, Othello, he told me that he saw you two kissing.
Hope: Someone else said it, too, someone that I really trusted-- my brother, Rick. (Sighs) But now I know... it was all a lie. Yes. Yeah, it was.
Rick: Hey, can I take this for the guesthouse?
Eric: Sure, take whatever you want, as far as I'm concerned.
Pam: Oh, oh, oh, actually-- actually, I need that, if you don't mind, but I'll bring you everything that I don't use, um, when I'm done, okay?
Rick: Okay. Shall we?
Caroline: Yes. More brainstorming.
Pam: Now the invitation still stands for dinner if you change your mind.
Rick: Thank you, but, uh, we're probably just gonna order in.
Pam: (Gasps) Order in? No!
Pam: Now don't be late tomorrow night, though, okay?
Rick: We wouldn't think of it.
Rick: Looking forward to it, in fact. Traditional Forrester celebration, just the way Stephanie would want.
Pam: Now you're gonna wear that sweater that I knit for you last year, right?
Rick: Oh, uh, uh...
Pam: You know, I never did get a thank-you note.
Rick: I-I love it. I-I-I do. I do.
Eric: Thank you for coming by, both of you. I appreciate it very much. Caroline, you're good for him.
Rick: Yes, she is.
Eric: All right. Go on. Brainstorm.
Eric: Thanks, Buddy. Go on.
Rick: Thank you.
Caroline: Bye, Pammy.
Pam: Bye. You heard what Rick said, Eric. Everyone's coming for Christmas dinner. And they're expecting you to be here.
Taylor: Thomas had the documents looked at again, and it seems like Stephanie's loophole is going to stand. It's just so unfair, you know, to take away his position and then to strip him of all his shares.
Steffy: Well, the bright side-- I've never seen him this motivated. I've never seen him this driven.
Taylor: Let's hope it pays off.
Steffy: I know.
Thomas: Are you two all right keeping at it? I gotta check on something downstairs.
Steffy: Yes, Sir. Did I say driven? I meant bossy.
Taylor: Well, let's hope that goes away soon. I'm sure it will when you and your brother win the competition, and you're back on top where you belong.
Rick: Here you are.
Caroline: Mmm! Thank you.
Caroline: (Laughs) What?
Rick: You don't really think that we should work?
Caroline: Well, if we want to win the competition, yes.
Rick: Well, my dad's gonna chose us.
Caroline: Not if Thomas' designs are better than ours. I guarantee Eric will not be playing favorites.
Rick: Yeah, this is true. (Sighs) I feel for him so much.
Caroline: Me, too. You're such a good son, you know, so supportive.
Rick: (Chuckles) I'm scoring some serious points with you today. Good son...
Rick: Even better brother...
Rick: After finally doing the right thing.
Caroline: Yes, you're definitely scoring points.
Rick: You know, my dad's right. You're good for me.
Liam: So Rick and Othello said that they saw Steffy and me making out the night before our wedding, and--and that's why you ended things?
Hope: Yes. I mean, okay...
Hope: You--you went out... (Sighs) The night before our wedding, and maybe you shouldn't have, but that was not enough to break us up. I was just so caught up in the thought that you had betrayed me.
Liam: Yeah, because of Rick! Does-- does he have any idea what he's done?
Hope: Well... hopefully, he... has done nothing that can't be fixed.
Pam: Dinner's almost ready.
Eric: Good. Great.
Pam: You heard Rick, Eric. Everyone is coming for Christmas dinner.
Pam: Stephanie would want you to--
Eric: I don't want to hear any more about it, Pam.
Eric: Now did you get what I wanted you to get? Did you do that for me? Pam?
Pam: I know how hard this is for you, but don't do it.
Eric: Did you?
Pam: Yes, I did.
Eric: Thank you. I know it's hard for you, but, uh, it's what I want.
Caroline: Wait, no, wait, wait.
Caroline: I-I was just gonna get your opinion on something.
Rick: (Inhales sharply)
Caroline: We're done working, aren't we?
Rick: Oh, she finally catches on.
Rick: (Chuckles) Is it too early to order? What would you like to eat?
Caroline: Well, we could always go back there for some pot roast.
Rick: Mm, no.
Rick: No, definitely no.
Caroline: (Chuckles) But what about Pam's gravy?
Rick: There will be plenty of that tomorrow. (Chuckles)
Caroline: (Giggles) (Sighs) My first Forrester Christmas.
Rick: Yeah. First of many.
Taylor: I'm just glad. I'm just glad. I'm... (Chuckles) It's so good to see you happy.
Taylor: Mm. Yeah, especially with everything else that's going on.
Steffy: I guess I reached a point in my life where I have reason to be.
Hope: Liam, I am so sorry. I should have trusted you. I should have listened to you. You never cheated on me. You never kissed her at all. (Sighs)
Liam: No, Ma'am. (Sighs)
Rick: Thank you.
Caroline: For putting the work away?
Rick: (Chuckles) No. For reminding me how I should behave... as a son and as a brother... as a man.
Caroline: It was all you.
Rick: No. (Sighs) No, I would have let that lie go on. I would have continued feeling terrible. I know it's gonna take a while for Hope to trust me again, but I'm gonna work really hard and reestablish our trust. (Sighs) I feel like this big weight's been lifted off of me. And I haven't been feeling good about myself. Ever since I told that lie, I've had this knot in my stomach.
Caroline: And now it's gone.
Rick: Yeah. Because of you.
James: One medium, no-foam...
Taylor: All right, thank you.
James: Extra hot, double-pumped soy vanilla latte.
Steffy: (Singsongy) Thank you!
James: And one medium drip, black.
Steffy: (Normal voice) Thanks, James. Bye.
Taylor: Thank you. Mmm. I am so happy that Liam is gonna be here for the holidays for you.
Steffy: Yes, me, too. I think it would have put me over the edge finding out that Liam was stuck somewhere outside of the country.
Steffy: (Sighs) Christmas is gonna be hard enough as it is.
Taylor: I know. I know, with your grandmother gone.
Steffy: Mm. Hey, are you, uh... are you gonna go to Granddad's?
Taylor: Well, Pam wants us to be over there to support Eric through the holidays.
Steffy: Yeah. But Brooke's gonna be there and Rick and Hope, I'm sure.
Steffy: It's not really gonna feel like a family...
Steffy: Especially with Dad out of town.
Taylor: (Sighs) I'm thinking maybe we should do something of our own...
Taylor: Just our family.
Steffy: Mm. Team Taylor style?
Taylor: Why don't we go and help over at the shelter? We'll do that in memory of Stephanie.
Steffy: Yeah, I like that. I think that would be a good idea.
Steffy: Hey, um... okay, do you... do you believe in Christmas miracles?
Taylor: Absolutely, yes.
Steffy: Yeah? I never really did before, but you know what? I think I'm having one. So much went wrong this year-- losing Grandma, Dad taking off, my marriage falling apart. But yet here I am, another Christmas, and I just feel this sense of peace. Finding my way back to Liam, no secrecy, no Hope getting between us, no baggage-- I have never felt so confident in what lies ahead.
Taylor: Your own Christmas miracle.
Hope: You are kind, honest, and caring. You're who you've always been. And you tried-- you tried to explain it to me over and over, but... I trusted my brother. And Rick knew exactly what to say. Liam... (Sighs) I will never lose faith in you again. Please, please forgive me. (Sighs)
