Brooke: I may have borrowed Hope's key to get in here. The dear Lord will forgive me, won't he?

Fontana: Well, your intentions were honorable, so...

Brooke: I'm so glad everything's almost finished out there. Everything has to be perfect when Hope and Liam get here.

Fontana: Are they getting here together?

Brooke: No! That would ruin the surprise.

Fontana: Oh.

Brooke: They have to be caught off guard.

[Computer beeps]

Oliver: So, what do you think?

Hope: Uh, they're amazing.

Oliver: It's the subject.

Hope: [Scoffs] Whatever. You have photographed me like 100 times.

Oliver: That's my point. There's not a bad one in the bunch.

Hope: Aww. Well, thank you. You're sweet.

Oliver: No, you are.

Hope: [Laughs]

Oliver: Liam figured that one out yet?

Hope: [Sighs]

Steffy: Tell Oliver to put a rush on those proofs, and let Mr. President know I'd like to see the "Hope for the Future" promos before they go out.

Woman: You think Rickís gonna try to squeeze you out?

Steffy: Oh, he can certainly try. But it won't happen. Hi, Mom.

Taylor: Hey! Are you busy?

Steffy: No, I think we're done here, unless you have something else.

Woman: Nope. All good.

Taylor: So, uh, you're losing yourself in your work, I see.

Steffy: Oh, what gave it away?

Taylor: Oh, let's just say I'm familiar with the syndrome.

Steffy: One of the perks of a demanding job.

Taylor: Mm-hmm. Just don't go overboard. You know, you have a little one to consider. How are you feeling?

Steffy: Oh, I feel great, actually. I just have a constant craving for food.

Taylor: Yes. Get used to it. It gets worse. Uh, when do you see Dr. Caspary?

Steffy: I have an appointment with her later today.

Taylor: Oh, good! So I take it you haven't told Liam?

Steffy: No.

Taylor: I wish you would. How do you expect him to make a decision about the rest of his life without that very vital piece of information?

Steffy: Because we both know what he would do.

Taylor: Yes -- he would stop this ridiculous vacillating and go on with the rest of his life with you and your baby! Honey, that's what you want, isn't it? Just reach out and take it.

Rick: Thank you for coming.

Liam: Yeah. Your, uh -- [Chuckles] Your text got me pretty curious.

Rick: Well, I'm glad it did. I also thought it would be a good idea if we speak in private.

Liam: Okay. About what?

Rick: Well, the other day, when I came to you, I was -- I was in duress. Hope, uh -- you know, she pretty much twisted my arm.

Liam: Listen, Rick, if you want to take back the whole "Welcome to the family" spiel, that's fine.

Rick: No, no, not take it back. Reinforce it.

[Birds chirping]

Rick: You and Hope -- you convinced me. You two really are good for each other.

Liam: Well, I appreciate the sentiment, Rick, but your timing kind of sucks. Honestly, I... I don't -- I don't know if there is a "Hope and me."

Rick: It's a big decision.

Liam: [Chuckles] You know, I -- I never really thought I'd be lucky enough to catch the eye of somebody like your sister. She's so...her, you know? And I-I was just me. I was a computer nerd. I barely lifted my head up from my laptop. Do you know that I never really had a girlfriend until Hope?

Rick: [Chuckles] Well, now look at you. But you can only have one.

Liam: Yeah. Thanks, Rick. I-I knew that.

Rick: Well, I'm glad you realize that, for my sister's sake.

Liam: You know, it's not just for her sake. It's Steffy, too. I mean, I -- I don't want to make them re-live what their mothers already went through with Ridge.

Rick: Oh, you're doing the right thing -- assessing how you feel. And I'm every bit confident that once you do, I'll be telling you "Welcome to the family" again.

Steffy: I refuse to tell him until after he's made his decision.

Taylor: Yes, but if he knew --

Steffy: Then he would stay with me, because it's the honorable thing to do, and I would hate it!

Taylor: [Sighs]

Steffy: When we were together, it was because it felt right. It felt good. And now it's gonna change because of some kind of obligation? No, we deserve better, and so does our child.

Taylor: If I had handled things a little bit differently, I might not have wasted so many years waiting for your father.

Steffy: I understand why you did. I mean, I still keep going back and forth. [Sighs] What does fighting for my relationship really mean at this point? To force myself on Liam so that he doesn't spend time with Hope, or to trust enough in what we have to give him the space that he needs?

Taylor: Well, evidently, you've made your decision.

Steffy: I will not perpetuate the cycle -- coming second to a Logan and being okay with it. If Liam wants to be with Hope, then...

Taylor: Then what? Because my greatest fear is that you'll disappear with the baby. And I'll lose two more people.

Oliver: Sorry. I shouldn't have said anything.

Hope: Why?

Oliver: I don't want to pry.

Hope: No. You werenít. Were you?

Oliver: I don't know.

Hope: It's kind of hard to tell sometimes, isn't it?

Oliver: Okay, what are we talking about? Are we talking about me or Liam?

Hope: Uh, maybe me, too.

Oliver: Do you want to talk about it?

Hope: About the mess I made of everything?

Oliver: Well, I didn't like seeing you have to go through all that.

Hope: Thank you.

Oliver: I mean, it's true. We had some great times together.

Hope: Yeah, we did. God, it seems like a lifetime ago, doesn't it?

Oliver: At least.

Hope: I know!

Oliver: At least. I messed up. [Chuckles] But, uh, it doesn't mean I don't still care about you.

Hope: I made a lot of mistakes, too.

Oliver: There's something different about you. I don't know what it is.

Hope: Could it be that I don't look like I'm about to crash and burn all the time? Could that be it?

Oliver: I don't know. But, uh, you got your, like, spirit back.

Hope: I do. And I am not going to let anybody take that away from me.

Oliver: All right. So... so, you and loam -- um, what's going on there? He's living with Steffy, right?

Hope: Um...he was. But he asked her to move out.

Oliver: Oh. So you guys are back together?

Hope: No. But I'm hoping that's the direction we're headed. But I'm not positive.

Oliver: But, I mean, they broke up, right?

Hope: [Laughing] I don't know! I don't know. Um, you know, I know that he still cares about her a lot.

Oliver: Well... I know how he feels about you.

Hope: So do I. And my mom thinks that I should make some kind of huge move.

Oliver: She could be right. There could be an opportunity.

Hope: I think that sounds awful right now.

Oliver: Really? I mean, after all the stuff Steffy put you through?

Hope: Yeah, no, I know. I know she did. But, you know, it can't be about Steffy. This has to be Liam making his own decision.

Oliver: It could be risky, though.

Hope: It could be. But not if what we have is real. And I think that it is.

Liam: I really don't take your sister for granted. I've never met anyone like her.

Rick: Neither have I. And then there's Steffy. Two beautiful, intelligent women.

Liam: Yeah, I know. Every man's fantasy, right?

Rick: Hmm. Is it?

Liam: Well, I don't like it. Being caught in the middle, and all these feelings, the loyalty to both of them? I mean, I hate hurting either one.

Rick: Don't you think that's kind of inevitable?

Liam: It's just -- they're so different, you know, in so many ways. I mean, Hope is, like, this inspiration. I'll put it to you this way -- I'll never be as good as Hope is, my entire life. But she makes me want to reach, you know, and be more like her.

Rick: That's quite a tribute.

Liam: And if things were different, we'd be married right now. I mean, I would be living an idyllic life right now.

Rick: With the woman of your dreams.

Liam: Yeah.

Rick: But then there's Steffy.

Liam: Who challenges me in a completely different way -- I mean, pushes me to live life, to make every moment count.

Rick: You've got a hell of a choice to make.

Liam: Yeah, but it can't keep going like this. It's not fair.

Rick: It's too bad you can't morph them.

Liam: [Laughs]

Rick: But you and I both know things just don't work that way. You could be friends with the both of them for the rest of your life. But you can only have one life partner. And realistically, if I were you, I'd be thinking about the long haul.

Taylor: The thought of you moving away with my grandchild because another Logan stole the father infuriates me.

Steffy: Brooke and her family have taken everything from us, Mom.

Taylor: And now her daughter becomes full-on home wrecker, just like her mother?

Steffy: And if he chooses to be with Hope...

Taylor: What? What, Steffy?

Steffy: I'm ending it -- this competition with the Logans. I do not want this for my child. It stops here... with us.

Oliver: That's hot.

Hope: Me?

Oliver: Oh, yeah.

Hope: [Laughing] That is not a word I would use to describe myself.

Oliver: Well, there's, uh -- there's "Compassionate" and "Smart."

Hope: Thank you.

Oliver: And "Role model" and "Hot."

Hope: [Laughs]

Oliver: It's good to see you laugh and smile.

Hope: Oh, thanks. Yeah, I was -- you know, I was just so caught up in the rules and doing everything the "Right" way.

Oliver: There's nothing wrong with that.

Hope: No. No, there's not. But it should not get in the way of you living your life the way you want to live it.

Oliver: And you -- you want to be with Liam?

Hope: Yes, I do.

Oliver: You got to go after what you want, and don't let anyone take that away from you.

Hope: You know, you may be one of the best friends I've ever had.

Oliver: I just want you to be happy.

Hope: Thank you.

Liam: Rick, man, I get what you're trying to do. But...it's my life.

Rick: Your life isn't the only one that's involved. It's my sister's life, too.

Liam: Haven't forgotten that.

Rick: I'm looking out for Hope. And myself. Redemption. Do you think that I can forget that it's my fault that you two aren't together?

Liam: I suppose not.

Rick: That's why I have to do everything that I can.

Liam: But, Rick... it's not your decision.

Rick: From the moment you met her, you wanted to be with Hope. You proposed to her in front of a slew of press. This was the woman that you wanted to marry. And then things happened -- misunderstandings, tricks. You ended up married to Steffy. But you were never fully committed to that, because in the back of your mind, Hope was always there. And then there was more lies, and there was more deception. And once you finally figured that out, you went back to Hope, your first love. And you guys tried to get married, and then things got in the way. And the biggest culprit was me, her brother. I thought I knew what was best for Hope. I created a lie that I knew she wouldn't forgive. And she ended it. She left you, and there you were, back with Steffy. [Sighs] Look -- I know that you care about her. But she's not your first choice, and she never will be. I hope that you realize that. I messed with you. You don't owe me a thing. But you owe Hope a lot, and you owe yourself. Don't let me be the reason that you don't get the life that you wanted.

Hope: I know that being happy depends on yourself. You can't always rely on someone else.

Oliver: So whatever happens, you'll deal.

Hope: I will. But believe it or not, my future does not depend on any man, not even Liam.

Oliver: Good for you.

Hope: Thank you. It doesn't mean I don't want him, because I do.

Oliver: I get it. I get it.

Hope: [Laughs] But he has to want it, too. And he has this huge decision to make.

Oliver: True.

Hope: Yeah. Inside, I'm kind of doing flip-flops and freaking out. I'm hoping that it goes the way I want it to.

Oliver: I think it'll go the way you want it to. I've seen the way Liam looks at you.

Hope: We should be together! We should. I really believe that, you know? But it's -- it's not up to me.

Oliver: Liam will make the right decision. You'll see.

Hope: I don't want to rush him. I want him to take all the time he needs.

Oliver: You know, sometimes, you do have to push a little. Steffy will. That's for sure. Maybe you should, too.

Taylor: I'm really very amazed by you, the woman you've become. You're so strong and confident, and you're so sure about what works for you and what doesnít.

Steffy: It's not just about me anymore. I have to think about my baby, what kind of life I want to give him or her. And it can't be the way Thomas and I grew up, and I don't mean to slam you in any way.

Taylor: I don't take it that way. I own how we lived. [Scoffs] I wouldn't want it for your baby, either. So, do you have any idea when this might ever be resolved?

Steffy: Well, Liam says he'll have an answer tomorrow.

Taylor: Good! Good. At least you'll know something for sure.

Steffy: Yeah. In the meantime, I've got to get to that appointment.

Taylor: Do you mind if I come along?

Steffy: I'd really like that.

Taylor: I'll drive.

Steffy: Okay. Thanks, Mom.

Brooke: [Sighs]

Fontana: Oh, Brooke. How bellissimo.

Brooke: Certo.

Madison: Everything's ready.

Brooke: Oh, good. Okay. Let's take a look.

Madison: Okay.

[Seagulls squawking]

Brooke: [Sighs] [Sighs] Oh, it's breathtaking! Thank you so much. Now all we need is Hope and Liam.

Dr. Caspary: So, how's the pregnancy?

Steffy: It's great.

Dr. Caspary: Morning sickness?

Steffy: Not much. I'm just always hungry.

Dr. Caspary: That's normal. We'll have to be careful not to let it get out of control. You don't want to over-gain.

Steffy: Okay. Whatever's good for the baby.

Taylor: Well, I have a concern. Um, Steffy -- um, she's been under a little stress lately.

Dr. Caspary: Oh?

Taylor: She, um, and the father were living together, but not anymore, and she, uh -- she hasn't told him about the pregnancy.

Steffy: I'm okay. I'm hoping that the separation is temporary. And once I'm home, he'll know everything, and we'll be fine! But I can't tell him just yet. I don't want to pressure him.

Fontana: Look what you've done out here. It's beautiful! It's just like Italy!

Brooke: Yes. I want to take those two back to that day, to how they felt.

Fontana: Oh, I think it's going to work. They're gonna be blown away!

Brooke: That's what I'm hoping. Now, if I can just get them here...

Fontana: Ah.

[Cell phone rings]

Hope: Hey, Mom. What's up?

Brooke: Hi, Honey. Are you busy?

Hope: Uh, just working on "Hope for the Future" stuff. Oliver got some really good new shots.

Brooke: Oh. Okay. Um, I-I really need to see you.

Hope: Now?

Brooke: Yeah, it's kind of important.

Hope: Where are you?

Brooke: At Liamís.

Hope: Uh, what?

Brooke: Could you just come here? I need you.

Hope: Okay, yeah. I'm on my way.

Brooke: One down, one to go.

[Cell phone ringing]

Rick: Hey, Mom.

Brooke: Rick, hi. Did you have that meeting with Liam?

Rick: I sure did.

Brooke: So, how did it go?

Rick: You know, I think he heard me.

Brooke: And he's still there?

Rick: Yeah, he left a few minutes ago.

Brooke: On his way back to the office?

Rick: It sounded like he was headed home.

Brooke: Wonderful. Okay, good. Thank you. Bye.

Rick: Mom?


Brooke: [Sighs] They're on their way here! [Laughs] This is great!
