Steffy: [Sighs] [Sniffles, sighs]
[Knock on door] Uh...
Steffy: [Sniffles] [Sighs]
Steffy: Hey, yourself.
Liam: May I?
Steffy: Guess you might as well.
Carl: Morning, Wyatt.
Wyatt: Hey, Carl. This is it!
Hope: Wow, cool!
Wyatt: Well, it's small, but it's nothing compared to your setup at Forrester Creations.
Hope: Oh, well, Forrester is decades in the making.
Hope: You guys are still regional, right?
Wyatt: Maybe I'll build it up some day just like Eric Forrester did.
Hope: You sure know a lot about our family business.
Wyatt: Well, I made it a point once I figured out that my peeping Hope was the Hope Logan.
Hope: Ha, ha.
Hope: You know, this is really cool. I've never seen a jewelry-design warehouse before. It's neat. Do you live here, too?
Wyatt: Mm-hmm. My mom's kind of a workaholic. She kind of figures everybody else should be, too.
Hope: Oh. Is she here today?
Wyatt: Uh, no, not yet. But she should be soon.
Hope: Good. I will take the opportunity to ask her about this necklace.
Bill: So, what's today all about?
Justin: Focusing on the settlement agreement. Financials, custody, visitation -- those are separate issues. We'll work that out later.
Bill: Or not. I haven't accepted this divorce, Justin.
Justin: I really respect you for fighting to keep your family together, but I am functioning as your attorney today. It's my advice that you sign these settlement papers.
Bill: [Sighs] Good. Everyone's here. We can get started.
Steffy: I don't even know why you're here, Liam.
Liam: I need clarification.
Steffy: All right.
Liam: It's been driving me nuts -- the way you left. I mean, passing me off to Hope and moving to Paris. I knew, Steffy. I knew that there was more to this, and so I talked to Dr. Caspary.
Steffy: You shouldn't have done that.
Liam: Yeah, well, you're my wife. And if something happened to you that was so huge you felt you had to leave me, then I deserve to know.
Steffy: What did she say?
Liam: She said that I should talk to you. We lost our baby. It was devastating. Is there more? Is there something you're not telling me? [Sighs]
Liam: Talk to me, Steffy.
Steffy: I ruined everything.
Liam: What does that mean?
Steffy: [Sighs] I was reckless, Liam. I lost our baby. But that's not all. [Sighing] Oh, God.
Liam: It's okay.
Steffy: There was a complication that arose [Sniffles] From the procedure after the accident.
Steffy: I can't have children, Liam. Ever. Oh, Liam...
Wyatt: This is where it all happens.
Wyatt: Yeah, my desk is over here.
Hope: [Laughs] That's nice.
Wyatt: Thank you.
Hope: It's impressive.
Hope: All this to make this. Sorry. Wow. I'm totally invading your personal space. Sorry.
Wyatt: It's okay. You didn't.
Hope: What? [Laughs]
Wyatt: Just...your eyes. So expressive. Very distracting, by the way. [Clears throat]
Hope: I'm not really sure how to take that.
Wyatt: In a good way.
Hope: Oh, good. Okay. Um, well, now that you're not distracted anymore...
Hope: ...Tell me something about you.
Wyatt: Uh...like what?
Hope: Mm, I don't know. Like, tell me about your family. You haven't mentioned your dad.
Wyatt: Never knew him. He died when I was -- when I was young.
Hope: Wow. I'm really sorry.
Wyatt: Yeah. Mom says we were better off without him. He was a little extreme -- materialistic, self-centered. He wasn't really a nice guy.
Hope: Obviously you didn't take after him.
Lawyer: Mr. Spencer, is the document to your satisfaction?
Bill: I haven't looked.
Katie: Is there a problem, Bill?
Bill: Yes, Katie, there's a problem. I don't want this divorce.
Liam: You've been carrying this by yourself all this time?
Steffy: It's my fault, my burden. You told me not to get on that motorcycle, but I didn't listen. I lost the baby and every chance we had for a family.
Liam: Steffy, that is not true. There are plenty of ways to have children -- adoption, surrogacy.
Steffy: That is not a possibility, Liam, not for me.
Liam: Why not?
Steffy: Because that's not how we planned it!
Liam: You've been alone with this for too long, Steffy. You're not thinking right, my love. It doesn't matter who carries the baby. It doesn't even matter if it's biologically connected to us. It's about being loving parents. It's about providing a stable home for a child to grow and thrive in. You should have come to me. You should have told me about this, because we could work through it together. That's what a marriage is, isn't it?
Steffy: I'm not the same person you signed up for.
Liam: That is not for you to decide.
Steffy: Well, we both know what you would do. You would honor your commitment. You would let go of the future that you want, that you deserve. Because you're an honorable man who stands by his word.
Liam: Steffy, do you think that I would stop loving you because you can't have children?
Steffy: Liam, come on. You got the explanation that you wanted. Now go. Go be with Hope. She's your future. [Sniffles]
Liam: Why? Why? Because she can make a baby and you can't?
Steffy: Everything changed when I lost the baby.
Liam: You expect me to believe that you just... suddenly stopped loving me? Well, I don't.
Wyatt: So, do you have a favorite gem? No, wait. Don't say anything. Definitely not diamonds, 'cause they're too flashy.
Wyatt: Um...something understated, more...classy. Am I right?
Hope: Gosh. I realize that pearls may seem a little outdated, but...
Wyatt: No! Classic, classic. It's exactly what I'd expect out of a girl like you.
Quinn: Let me see.
Wyatt: Hey, Mom.
Quinn: Hi, Sweetheart.
Quinn: Who's your friend?
Bill: I'd like to speak to my wife alone.
Katie: It's fine.
Bill: It's not too late to stop this. I don't want a divorce, Katie -- not for us. Certainly not for Will. I want to give our son what we promised -- a stable home, a father who is present, and parents who work out conflicts together.
Katie: Is that what you were doing with my sister? Working out conflicts?
Bill: We have to move forward. We can fix this if we stay together. We owe that to ourselves. We owe it to our son. Please, Katie. Can't we try?
Katie: Staying in a bad marriage doesn't do our son any good. I trusted you. And you betrayed me in the worst way possible. We can't come back from that.
Bill: We can if you let us.
Katie: I'm not gonna keep you from Will. [Sighs] I want you to be a big, big part of his life. You just can't be a part of mine anymore. I've already signed the settlement papers. I want you to sign them, too, please. [Sighs]
Bill: Send them in. These papers in order?
Justin: Everything we talked about. Just need your signature.
Bill: Hope you're happy.
Justin: That's it, then. I'm really sorry, Katie.
Katie: Me too. I really am sorry, Bill... that it's come to this.
Bill: What the hell are you doing here?
Karen: Katie asked me to come.
Wyatt: Mom, this is Hope Logan. Hope, this is my mother, Quinn.
Hope: Hi. It's really nice to meet you.
Quinn: Same here. Hope Logan of, um, Forrester Creations?
Hope: Yes. Yeah.
Quinn: Also known as the girl in the woods?
Hope: Oh, God.
Wyatt: See, I had to tell her about the whole romantic saga.
Quinn: Well, you've made quite an impression on my son.
Hope: Oh, well, Wyatt is very charming. Just ask him.
Wyatt: Well, right now I'm trying to charm her away from Liam Spencer.
Quinn: Liam -- short for William?
Hope: Yeah, he's the son of Bill Spencer from Spencer Publications.
Wyatt: He's an idiot.
Wyatt: Yeah. Running away to Paris and leaving Hope all alone. I mean, not that I'm complaining.
Hope: Oh, actually, I'm -- I'm so glad that I'm meeting you right now, because I'm curious about something. This sword necklace that Wyatt wears -- both Liam and Bill wear one that looks identical to this. Did you sell those to Bill?
Wyatt: When I found it in the vault, you said it was the only one you ever made.
Quinn: Y-yeah, I designed one necklace like that, and it sat in the vault for years. I suppose some other designer could have had a similar inspiration.
Hope: I guess, yeah.
Quinn: It happens. It was lovely meeting you.
Wyatt: Well, you guys will be seeing each other again... if I have my way.
Steffy: I'll always love you. But I just can't be with you anymore. It'd be a constant reminder of what I've lost, so I'd rather just take the memories and run.
Liam: Yeah, that's exactly what you're doing. You're running.
Steffy: The decision is made.
Liam: Yeah, well, I don't get a vote? This is about me, too, Steffy, and I don't want to lose you.
Steffy: You are my first real love. But they're not always meant to last, okay? So we need to accept it and we need to move on.
Liam: I got a better idea -- come home with me.
Steffy: Liam, no. No.
Liam: Why? Why?
Steffy: Liam, just go! Be with Hope! She'll give you everything you want, everything that you deserve... everything that I can't.
Liam: You're not thinking straight.
Steffy: It's my decision, Liam.
Liam: I've never regretted a single moment I've ever spent with you.
Steffy: [Gasps] [Sniffles] [Sniffles] I just want you to be happy, Liam that's all I ever wanted. [Sniffles] Liam. L-- [Crying]
Bill: You here to rail about what a horrible person I am again?
Karen: Since you brought it up, you are, and an even worse husband. You're a disgrace.
Katie: Let me explain what Karen is doing here. See, while you were out buying tiaras and doing God knows what with my sister, I've been spending time with yours. And we've grown close. She respects me and what I'm capable of.
Karen: You lost an exceptional woman here. She's got a great head for business, too. Remember how she used to run Forrester Creations?
Bill: "She used to run Forrester Creations? I appointed her C.E.O. of Forrester Creations. Do you have a point?
Karen: The wind shifted today. You and I are no longer equal partners in Spencer Publications. Katie owns 1%. That knocks you down to 49%, which makes me the majority shareholder. And, as such, I have made my first executive decision. Would you like to tell him?
Bill: Somebody better.
Katie: Well, Karen has reminded me that I am more than just my shattered illusions. I'm more than just your wife. And I don't have to curl up in a ball and be a victim because of my unfaithful husband. I can fight back. She's reminded of who I used to be -- energetic and confident and business savvy. That's the Katie Logan I want to be. Unfortunately, I can't do that with you around.
Bill: Where are you going with this?
Katie: Karen appointed me C.E.O. of Spencer Publications today. Effectively immediately, you're fired.
