Brooke: Brings it all back, doesn't it? In Italy, you promised Hope you would never miss an opportunity to show her how much you love her. Now is your chance.
Steffy: This can't be happening.
Taylor: See? I told you Brooke wouldn't let Hope just sit and wait.
Steffy: Let's just get there. Please.
Steffy: Liam is not getting married today.
Eric: All right, Ladies. Thank you very much. See you later. Nice job.
Rick: You know, you ask for a little thoughtfulness, a little restraint -- this is what you get?
Eric: You don't like it?
Rick: I might like it more if I didn't have your design to compare. Side by side, that pink dress is clearly the winner.
Eric: Thomas has a completely different aesthetic. You know that.
Rick: Yeah, and he also likes to tick me off. He's all about innovation. He's all about change. You know, I've asked him to dial it back a little bit. Do you think he listens to me? No. He clearly doesn't respect me, Dad.
Taylor: What on earth is Brooke thinking?
Steffy: As usual. Believing Hope is entitled to Liam. No matter what.
Taylor: Steffy, is it possible that Brooke and Hope know something or -- or that Liam may have said something that indicated what his decision would be?
Steffy: No, no, no, no, no. He would have come to me first. Liam has no idea what he's walking into.
Taylor: Oh, well, he'll figure that out very quickly, believe me. If Brooke is in fantasy land, and she wants him to marry her daughter, she won't be subtle about it.
Brooke: I know you weren't expecting this. So many times, I wish you could just go back to Polignano and rewind to that moment when you were saying your vows to each other next to the sea. But you don't need to do that. 'Cause we're right here. Your life is ready to begin. Right here, right now.
Liam: Your mother really wants us to do it.
Hope: I know.
Liam: Right here, right now, get married.
Hope: That's -- that's my mom. A little forward.
Hope: [Chuckles] But she -- you know, she loves us, after all we've been through.
Liam: After all we've been through.
Rick: Thomas wouldn't listen to me when he was a designer. There's no way he's going to listen to me now that he's vice president.
Eric: Well, not if you start giving him orders, no. But if you sit down and discuss these things with him --
Rick: What, like executive to executive?
Eric: [Sighs] Yes.
Rick: Hey, Dad, I hate to break it to you, but I doubt that that's gonna help Thomas and my relationship.
Hope: Can you believe this?
Liam: This is not what I had in my day planner.
Hope: [Laughing] No. Not even a little bit. No. No.
Liam: Brooke, I mean, what can I say? This is so sweet of you and so creative to go to such lengths. And, Father Fontana, I...
Hope: [Sighs] Look, Mom, I-I-I don't want Liam pressured into anything, especially a wedding.
Brooke: No, I-I know. No pressure. It's just clear to me what needs to be done.
Brooke: And it means so much to see the two of you together and the way you look at each other -- like that beautiful day in Polignano a mare.
Father Fontana: Well, in my eyes, you're still husband and wife, you know? You've gone through a difficult time, many challenges. But I can tell your love has persisted. You see, you're not mending something that was broken or trying to recapture something that was lost. No, this ceremony's only to remind you the vows you made to one another that beautiful day in Italy -- a day filled with excitement and plans for your future together as husband and wife.
Steffy: This is just so messed up. All Liam wanted was some breathing room.
Taylor: Well, you were confident enough to give it to him.
Steffy: I also gave Hope a chance to move in on him. I just thought, you know, after everything we've been through, he'd realize he's always been happier with me.
Eric: I can't force you to get along with Thomas.
Rick: Then you can remind him who's in charge.
Eric: That would be me.
Rick: You could have made him president. But you gave that job to me.
Eric: We're all working towards the same goal, Rick.
Rick: But as president, I have a greater responsibility for it. I mean, Dad, people are looking to me for leadership.
Eric: So am I. I'm expecting you to work this out.
Rick: Is this some kind of test?
Eric: It's not a test, Rick.
Rick: Then what is it? I don't understand. Thomas has brought nothing to the table. There's no reason to make him vice president.
Eric: It's important to me.
Rick: All right, then answer me this -- who benefits? Not the company. Certainly not Thomas. Thomas needs business experience, and, frankly, he could have gotten that from his father in Paris or his grandfather Massimo at Marone Industries.
Eric: Thomas belongs here.
Rick: All right. I get it. You want him to feel like he's part of the team. I, too, know how good that feels to get that kind of appreciation and recognition. Becoming president has changed everything for me. What I'm questioning is how beneficial is this pat on the back gonna be for Thomas?
Eric: Look, this is all still very new, but I see a lot to be very excited about.
[Cell phone vibrates]
Eric: I'm hoping that you and Thomas come to see the same thing.
Rick: It's Thorne. He needs me down at shipping.
Eric: Go on.
Rick: All right.
Madison: Is Rick leaving?
Eric: No, he's just going down to shipping. What is it?
Madison: I guess he doesn't know what's going on.
Eric: Well, apparently, I don't, either. What is it?
Hope: Well, I get it now. I-I get what you want to do for us a-and all the work that you put into this, but... Mom, this cannot be rushed or pressured.
Brooke: Honey... [Sighs] Look at this glorious day. Think about that time in Italy with the kites flying and the sun shining and the ocean and you two saying your vows to each other. And you were so in love. And you're just as in love today. I know. I can see it in your eyes. You are so connected. [Voice breaking] And I am so proud to be your mother and to have you as a daughter. [Normal voice] And you could be with this remarkable person. She is wonderful, and she would support you, and she would be there and love you and help you realize your full potential. The vista and the ocean and the setting and Father Fontana -- remember Italy? How anxious you both were to marry each other? Well, now you can finish what was begun. Father.
Father Fontana: Last we met, an entire town witnessed your vows, and today you only speak to one another. But since I've come all the way from Italy, I trust you'll indulge me.
Father Fontana: I remember quoting your saying, "If at first you don't succeed, then you must try, try again." Hmm? Well, you've done that more than most. Your love has been tested. This time a bit unorthodox, Brooke, to say the least, but I would not be here if I didn't trust in my heart that you're meant to be husband and wife. You know what I also remember from our last gathering? Your vows to one another -- to have and to hold, all the usual commitments, but also that attention for the everyday aspects of your life. You, Hope, said you were going to check the surf report every day, so that Liam could hang ten on those monster waves down below. Yes? And you, Liam, you said you were going to let Hope take over the house with all of her lotions and potions, which I'm sure she did.
Father Fontana: Yes, laugh. Laugh. It's good to laugh. It is vital to a relationship. Yes. It's so important. As it is to care for the little things. The day-in, day-out little acts of kindness and consideration that you mentioned in your vows. You see, that -- that just tells me that you're ready. You're ready to make this next step, on to your exciting life together.
Brooke: I'm so proud of you both -- finding your way back to each other. For some couples, that's impossible. But not for you.
Hope: Um... we were not expecting this.
Liam: [Laughing] No.
Hope: Um... but I'm -- I'm through making plans a-and drawing maps for our life. I'm ready to live it. You gave me this ring as a symbol of our love, and I took it off to prove a point, and that was wrong. And now... now I pledge myself to you by putting it back on.
Steffy: Liam! Liam!
Brooke: Put it on.
Steffy: Liam! Stop!
Madison: Brooke didn't tell you where she would be today?
Eric: No, just that she and Hope would be out of the office.
Madison: But she didn't say why?
Eric: No. Is there a problem?
Madison: I think I might have caused one. I don't usually get in the middle. I've worked here long enough. I know how to mind my own business, but this time I just couldn't. It didn't seem right to say nothing.
Eric: About what?
Madison: Hope and Liam's elopement.
Eric: They're eloping?
Madison: Brooke has a priest waiting at Liam's house right now.
Eric: Oh, God.
Madison: You didn't know anything about it?
Eric: No. No.
Madison: Neither did Steffy. Until I told her.
Eric: You? Not Liam? You?
Madison: I think he might be even more surprised than she was.
Eric: Yeah, uh, no doubt.
Madison: Steffy will try to stop it.
Eric: I'm sure she will.
Madison: You're not upset at me for telling her? I know you and Brooke are really close, and she wants Hope and Liam together.
Eric: No, no, no, no, no. You did -- you did the right thing.
Madison: [Sighs] I wasn't sure. It took me a while to call Steffy. I hope she gets there in time.
Eric: Yeah. I hope so, too.
Liam: What are you doing here?
Steffy: What are you doing? What, you're gonna marry Hope?
Taylor: An ambush, Brooke?
Steffy: Oh, this is not happening.
Brooke: Yes, it is. You're interrupting. Get out!
Steffy: So, you are telling me this is legit? This is what you want? Look, there's something you need to know.
Hope: Oh, please!
Steffy: I need to speak to you alone.
Hope: Steffy, there is nothing you can say that will change this.
Steffy: I'm pregnant.
