Taylor: Liam's coming back.
Brooke: Where's Hope?
Brooke: What do you mean, "gone"?
Liam: I mean she left.
Brooke: You just let her go?
Liam: Yeah, Brooke, I did.
Taylor: Liam, you made the right choice. You two have a lot of plans to make, so I'll let you do that.
Hope: [Sighs] Oh, God. I told myself I wouldn't do this. How many tears, you know? They have to dry up at some point.
Brooke: Liam's staying with Steffy.
Hope: She's pregnant. You know, for Liam, there's -- there's no other choice.
Brooke: That's not true. They don't have to be a couple to raise this child.
Hope: I know, and I-I pointed that out to him, but that's -- you know, having no dad around is kind of a hot button for Liam, because -- you know, even though Bill didn't know he had a son, it doesn't change how Liam grew up. So it's important to him that both parents are around.
Brooke: But, honey, this is different. He does know about this baby, and he can be an active participant in this child's life. He just doesn't have to live with the mother.
Hope: I know, I know, I know, but that's just -- you know, Liam isn't wired that way. And Steffy -- Steffy knows that.
Brooke: [Sighs] I have to wonder if Steffy planned this.
Hope: She says no.
Brooke: Well, yeah. Yeah, of course she says no. She wouldn't want to admit this sort of thing.
Hope: It doesn't -- you know, it doesn't matter now, because the baby is real, and Liam -- Liamís not gonna turn his back on his child... or Steffy.
Bill: Taylor. To what do I owe this unexpected surprise?
Taylor: I wanted to be the first to congratulate you.
Bill: Congratulate me. Okay. I'll play. What did I do?
Taylor: You made a son who made a baby with my daughter.
Taylor: We're going to be grandparents. Is that the best news you ever heard, or what?
Liam: This is such a surprise.
Steffy: Yeah. Tell me about it.
Liam: But you're -- I mean, you're happy, right?
Steffy: Of course, I am. What about you?
Liam: I mean...yeah. I'm just -- I'm St-- [Chuckles] still kind of processing.
Steffy: Yeah, I've had a little longer to let it sink in. I know. It's a -- it's a big, scary proposition.
Liam: Can I, um...
Steffy: You never have to ask.
Liam: Kind of quiet in there.
Steffy: For now.
Liam: Wow. [Chuckling] We're having a baby. We're having a baby.
Bill: So, you just brought me the best news I've had since Katie came. And you were there for that, too. You're popping up in my life quite a bit lately, aren't you, Taylor?
Taylor: I guess. Get used to it. We're grandparents now.
Bill: Yeah. I'm sure you'll have a lot of opinions.
Taylor: And I'll have no problem sharing them.
Bill: Some things never change.
Taylor: Look who's talking, Mr. Control Freak.
Bill: But, you see, that's what's great about grandkids. No matter how much you try, there's only so much control you can exert if you're not mom or dad.
Taylor: I'm just still so blown away by this whole thing, and I've known for a while. I can't believe it -- my baby is having a baby with the man she adores.
Bill: And they'll be raising it together -- make it all the sweeter.
Taylor: It was a close call. Brooke almost had Liam roped and tied. She went and got that priest all the way from Italy and flew him in. She barged into Forrester and got the staff there to put together this -- this whole wedding without Liam knowing. And they went out to his house, and she re-created Italy. It was crazy. I couldn't even believe it. I don't even think Hope had any idea what was going on.
Bill: Poor kid. Blindsided twice in one day.
Taylor: Is that, um, empathy I'm hearing for Hope?
Liam: This is so weird. We created a brand-new life -- you and me.
Steffy: The most important thing we'll ever do.
Liam: You know, when you think about it -- when you just try to imagine what it's like -- it's nothing compared to the reality of -- there's really a baby coming. [Chuckling]
Steffy: I can't wait to see your face the first time you hold this child. And you're gonna be an amazing father. But you don't have to stay with me to be that. I know you're thinking about Hope. And if that's who you want... then go be with her.
Hope: I'm trying really hard not to be resentful. Children are wonderful. They're miracles. And I should be so happy for Liam, because he's going to be such a great dad. He really -- he is. But I'm having some trouble getting there. It wasn't supposed to be this way. I was supposed to be the one having his children, and now -- now it just seems like this dream that I once had. [Inhales, exhales raggedly]
Brooke: A lot's come between you and Liam. Most of it, no fault of your own.
Hope: I know, and that's what kills me. It was never our feelings that changed. It was always somebody else's agenda getting in the way.
Brooke: I just don't understand how Liam could let this happen.
Hope: Maybe... subconsciously it's -- it's what he wanted.
Brooke: No. No, I don't believe that. He was as shocked as anybody when Steffy made that announcement -- five minutes before he was going to recommit himself to you.
Hope: Was he? I wonder -- I wonder about that, because -- I don't know. Maybe -- maybe he was just gearing up to let me down easy.
Brooke: Is that what you saw in his eyes, standing there, with the memories of Italy all around? Father Fontana standing there ready to make your marriage official?
Hope: No, I saw love. [Sniffles] But it doesn't matter... because Steffy is pregnant with his baby.
Brooke: I should know how to comfort you...and the right things to say. I know how you feel, honey. I've been there. All the pain. But what seems impossible today really can just be an obstacle that you work through tomorrow.
Hope: [Sighs] I don't see how. I could tell myself that Steffy didn't matter... that the bond I have with Liam is so much stronger. But now there's this baby. And I don't -- I don't want to try to compete with a baby.
Brooke: My heart is breaking that you're going through this right now.
Hope: I know.
Brooke: I'm sorry.
Hope: It's okay. Your support means everything to me.
Brooke: And you'll always have it. Oh, honey, is there anything I can do for you?
Hope: [Sighs deeply] Um -- [Sniffles] Send me back in time so I never moved out of Liamís house in the first place. Um -- God, why did I make it so hard to live with him? Now it's Steffy's house. [Sniffles] It's the house where she's gonna be raising her child... with the man that should be mine. [Sniffles] Oh! I hope it's -- I can't be here anymore.
Brooke: I'll take you home.
Hope: Okay. Thank you.
Bill: Look, I don't dislike Hope. I certainly don't wish her any harm. But I just didn't think she was an appropriate partner for my son. So now that she's out of the picture, sure, I can spare a little empathy.
Taylor: Are we positive about that? Hope being out of the picture, I mean. Your son's been known to fluctuate.
Bill: Ah, don't worry about that. There wasn't a baby before. My son is fully committed to your daughter. That's the kind of man he is. Grandpa Dollar Bill. Who'd believe it? Just a few short years ago, I'm the most eligible bachelor in the world, and now I've got the family that just keeps on giving. Katie. Liam shows up. Now Katie and I have Will. My sister, her partner. And my son's giving me a grandchild.
Taylor: I hope you're not overwhelmed.
Bill: In the best way possible.
Taylor: Oh, you'll do great.
Bill: You think so?
Taylor: Yeah. I've seen you with Will. Actually, you've surprised me. He brings out your sensitive side.
Bill: [Chuckles] Yeah, well, he's my little man. Those tiny, little creatures. Innocent. Totally dependent on basically clueless grown-ups for their well-being.
Taylor: Yeah. They don't come with a manual, that's for sure. It would be nice.
Taylor: You think our kids are ready for it?
Bill: Is anyone? Babies come, ready or not. Well, I imagine this was a big blow for Brooke.
Taylor: Well, maybe she should stop meddling in people's lives and planning weddings that people haven't agreed to.
Bill: Oh, wow. Uh, you know, I'm late for a meeting. We got to have dinner, celebrate.
Taylor: Yes. You just say when and where.
Bill: Well, thanks for the news...Grandma.
Taylor: You know what? I actually don't mind hearing that. It makes me very happy.
Liam: [Smooches] You're having my baby.
Steffy: But I don't want us to be together because I'm just the mother of your baby. We can share custody.
Liam: No, no. No. I'm raising our kid with you. Two parents in a stable home living together -- everything that we didn't have. The next chapter of our lives is beginning, and I know where I belong. I know where my place is. It's with you -- and the baby.
Steffy: Only if you're sure, Liam. I cannot be second best.
Liam: I am. I am.
[Knock on door]
Bill: I figured you'd be here if you weren't at the main house.
Brooke: I guess you know.
Bill: I do.
Brooke: Oh. Yes, of course. I imagine she couldn't wait.
Bill: She's pretty happy.
Brooke: I'm sure you are, too.
Bill: I can't deny it.
Brooke: Well, if you came here to gloat, I'm really not in the mood.
Bill: Come on. You know better than that.
Brooke: I'm sorry. It's just been a very long, disappointing day.
Bill: That's why I'm here. I thought you could use a friend.
Brooke: I wouldn't turn one away.
Bill: Brooke, Liam made the right decision. When a man makes a family, he has to take responsibility for that, and I'm proud of him. But I also know how much Hope lost and how much that hurts you. So I'm here. Whatever you need.
Steffy: Is this really happening?
Steffy: This is everything that I have ever wanted. You and me and our -- our little one. [Chuckling] Our baby.
Liam: It's mind-boggling.
Steffy: It's unbelievable.
Liam: It's insane.
Steffy: It's meant to be. This is what it was leading to all along -- that we would end up right here. And it's gonna be so good. You can't even imagine.
Singer: Hold me close never let go don't need words we already know everything I am I can see it in your eyes and all I ever needed now I realize you and I are beautiful together our time is now till forever you're every breath I live to breathe in every moment, you are all I need we're beautiful together. Every day is a dream come true 'cause you got me and I got you
