Hope: I know you wouldn't have married Steffy if you didn't love her. And losing a child doesn't change that.
Hope: But, Liam, Steffy is planning on getting pregnant again right away. That's how you ended up with her in the first place. It doesn't have to happen that way again.
Steffy: You told Hope to stay away.
Taylor: Don't worry about Hope. I want you to concentrate on yourself and Liam.
Steffy: I want to give him another baby. Not that I'll ever make up for the child that we lost.
Taylor: Sweetheart, stop blaming yourself.
Steffy: Mom, when Hope hears that we're trying again --
Taylor: She already knows. And she already believes that you're doing it as just another way to cling to Liam.
Steffy: Of course she thinks that.
Taylor: But we know that's not what it's about. It's about healing. For both of you. And Liam knows that. He wants to try again, too.
Brooke: Dinner is ordered. I hope Eric still loves Emilio's veal saltimbocca. [Chuckles]
Donna: What are you thinking, Brooke?
Brooke: The clock is ticking. I have to protect Katie. She can never find out that I am pregnant with Bill's child.
Donna: Well, you still haven't told me how Rick and Bridget fit into this.
Bridget: How Bridget fits into what?
Brooke: Oh! Honey! Oh, you're here!
Bridget: Hi, Mom!
Brooke: Hi! Ohh!
Bridget: Hey, Donna! Wow! That is some greeting.
Brooke: Well, I'm just so happy to see you.
Brooke: And your timing couldn't be more perfect.
Bridget: Oh, are you sure you can't stay? Mom could just set another plate for you.
Donna: Oh, why, as much as I'd love to, I think Brooke has other plans.
Bridget: Oh. Well, what's going on, Mom?
Brooke: I just want my beautiful daughter all to myself.
Bridget: Oh. I thought Rick and dad were joining us?
Rick: Well, Rick is.
Rick: I'm not so sure about dad. Hey, Budge.
Bridget: Oh, how is my favorite brother? Ohh!
Rick: [Laughs] I'm good. I'm good. Just curious about this spur-of-the-moment family powwow.
Bridget: Okay, out with it, Mom. What is this all about?
Donna: My cue to leave. Bye-bye, everybody.
Bridget: Bye. Love you.
Brooke: See you soon.
Donna: See you.
Steffy: Wearing black on my wedding day.
Taylor: Wearing black on your wedding day wasn't an omen, honey, any more than arriving on your motorcycle was tempting fate. Sweetheart... [Sighs] You were just being yourself. You understand that, don't you?
Liam: Steffy's going through such a dark time right now.
Hope: And you'll be there for her. As you should be. She needs you right now, and that's the kind of man you are. But if Steffy had her way, she would plan on getting pregnant again tomorrow. Is that really what you want? If it were possible to turn the clock back... if we could... would you want to?
Hope: Forget I asked that. I'm -- I'm sorry. It's too -- it's too soon. I'm sorry.
Liam: No. [Sighs] There's just so much to sort out. I mean, I was... all about becoming a new dad, you know? [Sighs]
Hope: Steffy doesn't want to waste any time giving you another child. It's not because she's always wanted a family. That's -- that's not Steffy. It's because she's afraid she might lose you. And, I mean, I don't blame her. I would do the same thing, but not for the same reason. I wouldn't trap you like that. It'd be because I know you have so much love to give to a little baby.
Liam: It's funny. There's so much I can't say to Steffy right now. I don't know. It's -- it's nice. It's, um... it's really nice having you. [Sighs]
Taylor: You know, there's not a whole lot in the fridge, so if you're not going to eat this soup, I'll run to the market and pick you up whatever you want. Or I could call Liam and ask him to pick something up on the way back. Did he say how long he'd be gone?
Steffy: No. Why did I get on the bike? [Voice breaking] Why didn't I listen to him?
Taylor: Oh, sweetheart.
Steffy: I cost him his baby. He should be as mad at me as I am with myself.
Taylor: Honey, he loves you. He knows you would have never wanted this to happen.
Steffy: But it did happen! It did! I got on the bike without thinking because I was being impulsive like always, Mom!
Taylor: [Crying] Don't.
Steffy: I wanted -- [Sniffles] I wanted that baby so much.
Taylor: I know. I know.
Steffy: [Sniffles] I wanted to have Liam's child.
Eric: I can't see you right now because I'm hugging you, but I know it's nice, and you're so much taller. Oh, that's the shoes. Tell me it's the shoes. Right?
Bridget: It's the shoes, Daddy.
Eric: Why didn't you tell us you were flying in?
Bridget: I'm sorry. It just -- it all happened so quickly.
Rick: Budge's life -- brilliant in-demand doctor, jet-setting from coast to coast.
Eric: I know. There's something I want to talk to you about. What is this bicoastal practice of yours? How practical is that?
Bridget: It's working right now, actually. I mean, it's not gonna be forever. I promise. But for now, it's --
Brooke: For now we're just happy that you're here with us.
Brooke: It's been way too long since we've had a family dinner like this.
Rick: Which explains the menu -- all of dad's favorites.
Brooke: Well, of course. I ordered from Emilio's.
Bridget: My favorite, too.
Brooke: Practically a nightly ritual when your father and I were first married.
Rick: Okay, wait a minute. You mean mom didn't slave over a hot stove?
Eric: No, your mother -- your mother wasn't exactly sure where the stove was.
Rick: Oh. [Laughs]
Brooke: Oh, my God.
Bridget: [Laughing] Mom. Okay, wait, Dad. Um... you and Taylor? Boy, that caught me off guard.
Brooke: Uh, honey, I'm sure your father will fill you in on that some other time, but tonight is our family's night.
Bridget: Okay. Sorry. I just -- this happened very quickly and...
Eric: Yeah, that's okay. Taylor has become very, very important to me. More than some people realize or accept. I, um... I would never want to do anything to hurt her or to cause her to lose faith in me.
Rick: I don't think anyone's asking you to do that, Dad.
Bridget: Are -- [Laughs] Are we missing something here?
Bridget: We can't do it in this, but, I mean, at some point, yeah.
Eric: It's crunchy, crunchy bread like that.
Bridget: It's good, though, ?Dad.
Eric: I know it is.
Bridget: Champagne? Really?
Brooke: Mm-hmm. Not often are we together like this, the four of us, so I wanted tonight to be memorable. No, none for me, thank you. I'm bubbly enough, having all of you here with me tonight.
Eric: Well, um, Bridget, tell us about -- catch us up! Tell us about yourself. Come on. The job? My little grandson?
Rick: Your love life?
Bridget: Um...well, Logan is thriving. I can't wait for you guys to see him. He's so, so precious. And Jackie and Owen are really, really good with him. They're wonderful.
Eric: And they live in the adjoining or adjacent -- which is it?
Bridget: Adjoining apartment. And, I know, Dad, it's a little unique, but it works for us, 'cause if I'm at the hospital late or I have to fly to the opposite coast, Logan gets to be with --
Brooke: Gets to be with his dad and his stepmom. It's great.
Eric: Being spoiled rotten, I'm sure.
Bridget: Okay, maybe a little, but it's really -- honestly, it's about putting Logan's needs first. It's the way that you and mom were for Rick and me.
Brooke: Yes, Eric is a wonderful father. And husband. I was so lucky to be married to him.
Rick: Hey. Now, there's an idea, huh? You're both single. Why not? Tie the knot again. Hmm?
Taylor: Honey, you haven't really touched your tea. I can heat you up a little bit more water if you want. Sweetie.
Steffy: We'll never forget the baby we lost. But having another child... Liam and I, we need something wonderful to look forward to.
Taylor: I just want you to understand. Getting pregnant right away is not going to make all the pain go away.
Steffy: But it would help.
Taylor: You know something? I think what would help you is we'll get a little memento box. [Voice breaking] And we'll put all the things that you bought the baby...in there. We'll make it, like, a... a ceremonial tribute. And, um... then you put the box away. And you keep all the memories.
Taylor: And, honey, you have to be able to let it go.
Taylor: You have to forgive yourself, baby. You got to. Or it's just going to paralyze you.
Liam: [Chuckles] I, uh... I got to go. I got to get back. She -- Steffy shouldn't be alone.
Hope: Oh, I doubt she is. I'm sure Taylor rushed right over there to tell her that she warned me to stay away from you.
Liam: Yeah, well, you know, she's being protective.
Hope: Oh, I-I-I totally get it. My mom would have done the same thing.
Liam: [Chuckles] Yeah.
Hope: Except my mom -- my mom wouldn't have let me get on a motorcycle while I was pregnant. But Steffy is spontaneous. She's impulsive.
Liam: Well, you can be impulsive.
Hope: Yeah. But that's not what drew you to me. You said that I made you a better person. And that you admired my goals and my values. And that's the kind of thing you build a marriage on. A life, a future.
Liam: [Chuckling] Yeah.
Hope: Steffy's going through the unthinkable right now. You both are. And I know that you love her. But, Liam, the reason that you married her... it's gone now. And I'm -- I'm so, so sorry. I'm sorry. You told me once that you will always love me, and I know that's true. Liam, you'll get Steffy through this. But just know that you can still choose to have the life that you want. I love you.
Brooke: Emilio's finishing the sauce for the veal. It shouldn't be much longer. What are you guys looking at?
Eric: Gee, I wonder.
Bridget: Just these old scrapbooks of our family. I haven't seen these in ages.
Rick: Yeah, Mom, why are you dragging these out now?
Eric: Yeah, why now, Brooke?
Brooke: Oh, I -- I'm feeling a little nostalgic. Having my children here, my husband.
Eric: Your ex-husband. Ex-husband.
Bridget: Not in these photos.
Eric: It's your wedding in Palm Springs.
Bridget: Mm-hmm. Yeah. Oh, and then didn't you -- you went to your honeymoon in a hot air balloon.
Brooke: We had a lot of good memories when we were together.
Eric: Yeah. Unfortunately, it wasn't all champagne and hot air balloons.
Brooke: No, but what marriage is? I mean, I was young and I had a lot of growing up to do. And you were very patient. And we adored our children more than anything. And now here you are. All of us together as a family. You have no idea how much this means to me.
Singer: Come with me take my hand I'll lead you away
Both Hope & Liam: I love you.
Singer: Days may come, but then they go we turn to see and then we grow you lay beside me as I sleep I'm yours to keep I'm yours to keep
Singer: I'm yours to keep
