Steffy: Good morning.

Liam: Not that good.

Steffy: Mm.

Liam: You sure you have to go?

Steffy: I promised my dad.

Liam: What's it about?

Steffy: Wish I knew.

Liam: Well, is there any way you can call him and find out? I mean, maybe it's not that urgent.

Steffy: I suppose I could.

Liam: But you don't think you should.

Steffy: Not because I'm anxious to leave you here all alone.

Liam: Okay. That's good to know. Your timing sucks, by the way.

Steffy: Oh, how sweet.

Liam: [Laughs]

Steffy: You miss me already.

Liam: Yeah, well, your dad may need you, but I-I-I need you, too.

Steffy: Babe, I programmed the numbers of your favorite take-out places into your cell.

Liam: Man does not live by pizza alone, you know.

Steffy: There's also a list of rules. See that you stick to them.

Liam: What?! No house parties?

Steffy: I will make it up to you when I get back home.

Liam: Yeah? Which is when, exactly?

Steffy: Mm! Somebody doesn't want me to go. [Chuckles]

Liam: I don't, uh, suppose... there's any convincing you to stay.

Rick: Hope, I'm so sorry that I'm late. I went over to Dani and Karen's to check on Caroline.

Hope: How is she?

Rick: She's good. She's good. Her moms aren't letting her lift a finger.

Hope: Well, that's understandable. She was released from the hospital yesterday.

Rick: Try telling that to Caroline, with this fashion showdown happening today...

Hope: What, does she think we're not gonna pull this off?

Rick: No, it's not that. She just doesn't get to do her last-minute tweaks.

Hope: Oh, like she needs to. Her designs work on so many levels.

Rick: Well, try telling that to a perfectionist. [Chuckles] So, um, what's going on here?

Hope: Oh, uh, you know, everything's good. Models are in hair and makeup, so you should probably...

Rick: You know what? I'm on it.

Hope: Okay.

Rick: [Sighs] You know what? I know not all is forgiven. And I don't expect it to be.

Hope: Look, Rick... what you did was... just as bad as anything that Bill pulled in Italy. And Liam and I -- we've been messed with so many times. I-I'm not saying that I'm blameless here.

Rick: Hope --

Hope: No, I mean, if -- if I had listened to Liam, if I had trusted him, then he wouldn't be with Steffy. And now they're closer than they've ever been.

Rick: Don't let that stop you.

Hope: Well, I'm not the naive girl I used to be. I've learned from this, and I know where I belong, and I know who I want to be with. I'm just... you know, I'm not sure if Liam and I can get back to what we used to be before well-meaning people interfered.

Rick: I know. I want that for you, too. And I'm sorry. I will never interfere again. I-I've completely learned my lesson.

Hope: Well, I hope that Bill has, too. Now we just have Steffy in the way. She's not going anywhere.

Eric: It's all about the designs, Pam.

Pam: That's right. No fancy runway this time.

Donna: No showroom crammed with photographers.

Thorne: Yes. Nothing to distract from the task at hand.

Eric: Yeah, today we're gonna decide between competing visions for the Forrester future.

Marcus: And the collection that showcases that vision best.

Dayzee: Yeah, I don't envy you, Eric, having to choose between Thomas and Rick. It's tough.

Pam: Shouldn't they be here by now?

Donna: Maybe, uh, Thomas threw my nephew out the window again.

Pam: Tom did not push Rick.

Donna: Did too!

Eric: All right, Ladies, that's enough. Now, come on. That's all in the past. We're dealing with the future, and that's the way Stephanie would want it.

Thorne: And she wanted you back where you belong... as C.E.O.

Eric: Yeah, and I'm gonna be C.E.O. here for a very long time.

Thorne: [Chuckles]

Eric: But our priority number one today is to name a new president of Forrester Creations. It's either gonna be Rick or Thomas.

Pam: They both have so much going for them.

Thorne: But who wants it more? That's -- that's what it comes down to.

Rick: Would it help if I apologize again? How about -- how about the biggest bouquet you've ever seen of your favorite flowers? I'm not gonna give up until we're cool again.

Thomas: Marcus just texted me. Everyone's wondering where you are. I just told him you forfeited the challenge.

Hope: [Scoffs]

Rick: [Chuckles] I don't think so.

Thomas: Just trying to help you save face.

Hope: Hey, we are very confident in our vision.

Thomas: It's a shame your star designer's laid up in bed.

Rick: Caroline's with us in spirit. But what's Steffy's excuse?

Hope: Yeah, she should be here by now.

Thomas: She's on her way to the airport.

Hope: Uh, oh. Is she going out of town?

Thomas: Dad needed to see her in paris. Look, our designs are young and fresh. I'm confident we will take the competition by storm, even without my sister.

Steffy: Oh, I would so like to let you twist my arm.

Liam: Don't get me started.

Steffy: Mm. I promised my dad. I don't want to break it, you know. It seemed important to him. Besides, it'll be good for me, spending time with him.

Liam: [Clicks tongue] All right. All right. I get it. But I don't have to like it.

Steffy: [Laughs]

Liam: I'm gonna miss that laugh.

Steffy: Please tell me that's not all you'll miss.

Liam: I will miss everything about you. You fill up the place.

Steffy: Honestly?

Liam: What's going on with you?

Steffy: What? N-nothing. I'm... fine. W-what do you mean?

Liam: Just a feeling.

Steffy: I just don't like being away from you. That's all.

Liam: No. No, I think something else is going on. And I bet I know what it is.

Donna: Okay. Thanks. Bye.

Pam: Um... by the way, donna, I'm making my famous pot roast for Eric tonight. In case you were thinking of dropping by.

Donna: Oh. Yeah. Sure, pam. Yeah. I'd love to.

Pam: Oh, no. T-that wasn't meant as an invitation.

Donna: Oh. Yeah. You want him all to yourself.

Pam: No, no. I'm just saying that he really misses my sister, and I just want to be there for him. I-I'm worried about him getting too lonely. And work has been great for him. But when he gets home at night --

Donna: Okay, okay. I get it. All right, Pam? But you're not the only person who cares about him.

Eric: You know, Son, there's another man who would make an excellent president of this company. Just say the word, the job's yours.

Thorne: And I'd have two guys coming after me with hatchets. Thanks, Dad, but, uh... my days of wanting to run this company are behind me.

Eric: Are you sure, Thorne?

Thorne: [Chuckles] Yeah. I am. But Rick and Thomas, on the other hand... they both want to be the man in control, so... truthfully, I'm glad I'm not in your shoes. [Chuckles]

Thomas: I'd wish you luck, but...

Rick: We're not gonna need it, Thomas.

Thomas: Mm. You're that confident.

Rick: Nothing personal, Buddy. I think you're a hell of a designer. We just don't see eye to eye on Forrester's future. But when Dad does make his decision, we're all gonna have to pull together. Deal?

Thomas: Let's get this competition started.

Rick: You got it. Hey, Sis, you coming down?

Hope: Uh, yeah. I just -- there's something that I have to do first. So don't wait on me.

Steffy: So, what? You are the mind reader now?

Liam: No. I can just tell when something's going on with you. So, how long do you think you'll be gone?

Steffy: Too long.

Liam: That would be true even if you said it was a day.

Steffy: Mm. You say all the right things.

Liam: Yeah, well, I mean them.

Steffy: It's kind of up to my dad... how long he'll need me. I'm not sure what's going on. But I don't want to be away from you any longer than I absolutely have to. My dad knows that. Look, I will probably be back before you even miss me.

Liam: [Chuckles]

Steffy: But not before Hope can make a move. Come on. With me temporarily out of town, I expect her to take full advantage. She believes you two were robbed of a future together, and now she's fighting back. I get that. But regardless of what happened with your dad and Rick... it doesn't change what is. You and I are living together. We're building a future.

Liam: Hey, you know I'm loyal to you, all right?

Steffy: Yeah. I-I don't want to say don't talk to Hope or see her. I mean, you guys have a lot to discuss and work out. So... in the meantime, just know I will be back as soon as I can. And also know... how much I'm looking forward to coming home and being with you... picking up our life... moving into the future... whatever it holds.

Liam: All right. Let's get you to the airport.

Steffy: Actually, I, um... I'll just take my car.

Liam: Oh.

Steffy: I have to make a quick stop first.

Liam: Okay.

Marcus: Cool.

Eric: Oh, and Marcus?

Marcus: Yeah?

Eric: I want a complete press blackout. I don't want any reporters sneaking in the back way or finding out anything until I've made my decision, until we've settled any issues we have.

Marcus: You got it.

Eric: [Sighs]

Donna: Hey.

Eric: Hey.

Donna: Coming here into Forrester every day, it's... it's what's gotten you through, hasn't it?

Eric: Yeah, it has. Stephanie knew just what I needed.

Pam: Yep. My sister was a really wise woman.

Rick: All right, everyone. Showtime.

Eric: Well, there you are. About time you got here.

Thomas: You ready for this, Granddad?

Eric: Yes, I am. I see you both are, too. All right, I want everyone to remember this is a professional challenge. I don't want the result to impact this family in a negative way at all. You're both very important to me and to the future of this company.

Marcus: [Sighs] Hey, guys, um... not everyone's here. Where's Hope and Steffy?

[Door opens]

Hope: Knock-knock! Hello.

Liam: Hi.

Hope: Cinnamon bagels. They're, uh, still your favorite, right? I went to the bakery, and they asked about you. Are you working?

Liam: Uh, yeah. Sort of. I...

Hope: Not anymore. So, you, um, talked to your dad, right, about Italy? How'd it go? What happened?

Liam: Um... it was a strange encounter. [Chuckles]

Hope: Uh, what does that mean?

Liam: Well, let's just say he was very determined to prove how much he loves me... in his own twisted way.

Hope: Okay, y-you're not condoning what he did, though, right?

Liam: Oh, hell no! No! I mean, he hurt you. He hurt us. I mean, there's no excusing that. It's just... my dad, you know, as smart as he is with business, when it comes to family, he is just... his own worst enemy. You know, don't you? About Paris, Steffy.

Hope: That's why I'm here.

Donna: Well, I just left a message with Brooke.

Pam: Yeah, and I did the same with Taylor.

Eric: All right, well, in the meantime, let's, uh, let's reiterate the ground rules. One of you will be named president of Forrester Creations and one of you will not. And so I want you both to remember that you're both very important to me and to this company. I also want you to remember that I'm still C.E.O. and you both answer to me. Is that understood?

Pam: The, uh, models are ready when you are.

Eric: Good. Good luck, Gentlemen. The future of Forrester Creations is in your hands.

Liam: [Laughs] You don't waste any time.

Hope: Well, we've lost too much of it as it is, with people interfering and manipulating. I want our life back, Liam. We were robbed. I'm taking you back. Consider yourself warned.

Liam: [Sighs]

[Steffy remembering]

Steffy: [Sighs]

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! You watch what you say. We're gonna have one of those one day.

Liam: Yeah? Just one?

Steffy: For starters.

Liam: Boy or a girl.

Steffy: A girl. I can only handle one boy at a time.

Liam: Oh, but you handle him so well.

Steffy: Oh. I'm pregnant. I'm pregnant. [Laughs]
