Quinn: [Breathes deeply]
Hope: The deal is locked.
Liam: Hope, you're allowed to change your mind. You can just say that after this meeting, you realized Quinn artisan isn't a right fit after all.
Quinn: [Breathing deeply]
Eric: Thorne, I-it's okay. It really is. We'll have dinner another time.
[Chuckling] No, it's all right. I, uh -- I'm glad you have a date. Yeah. Enjoy yourself.
[Cell phone ringing]
Quinn: Hi, honey!
Wyatt: Mom, hey. I had to come back to Forrester. Where are you?
Quinn: Um... trying to fix something.
Wyatt: Fix what? I'll call you back. [Chuckles] Can't get rid of me, can you?
[Knock on door]
Hope: [Breathes deeply]
Brooke: Hi, sweetie.
Hope: Hi. Hey. Uh, I got your text earlier. Um, Katie went to new York? She took will?
Brooke: [Sighs] Yeah. I guess she needs some time away.
Hope: Okay. How long is she gone?
Brooke: We're not sure. So, how is everything? How was your meeting with Quinn and Wyatt?
Hope: It was great. It was really great! It was fantastic! Uh, you know, contracts were signed. Everyone was really excited and enthusiastic... everyone except Liam, who wants me to cut all ties with Wyatt.
Quinn: I hope you don't mind my stopping by.
Eric: No, I don't -- not at all. In fact, I -- I'm very pleased that you did.
Eric: I just opened a bottle of wine. Would you, uh, like to join me?
Quinn: Oh, I would love to. Thank you.
Eric: That was a good meeting today.
Quinn: Oh. Yes, Wyatt and I are so excited about working with Forrester creations.
Eric: I think it's a terrific partnership -- I really do.
Quinn: Yeah. Actually, that's why I'm here, Eric. I want you to know how much this opportunity means to me.
Hope: Liam wants me to fire Quinn and Wyatt.
Brooke: He can't do that. That's not fair. Liam needs to understand that this is business. It's not personal.
Hope: I know. That's what I told him. But I guess it's personal for Liam. He -- he doesn't trust Wyatt, and he doesn't want him anywhere near me.
Wyatt: This has got to be weird for you -- me here at Forrester with hope.
Liam: Your mom's jewelry happened to be the one hope liked. Totally...random coincidence.
Wyatt: I don't know. I mean, is anything in life ever really random anymore?
Liam: Wyatt, y-you have been in our lives all of, what -- a month now, and you're already causing more trouble than you're worth. You're kissing my fiancÚ in my own home. You're flipping out in front of our father.
Wyatt: Oh, yeah, about that? Yeah, dad and I are totally cool now. Yeah. He came by, and he apologized to me. We talked. We both admitted that we overreacted, and then... he gave me a big, old hug.
Wyatt: Come on, Liam. Everybody else likes me. You're the only holdout. Gosh, my own brother.
Liam: Half brother.
Wyatt: Come on, man. What do you say? Should we hug it out, brother to brother? Seriously. Come on. Get in here. It's not gonna kill you, is it? Come on.
Eric: To joint ventures and new opportunities.
Quinn: [Chuckles] Mmm. Wow. You have a beautiful home.
Eric: Thank you. Been here for a long time. Raised all our children in this house.
Quinn: Is that your wife?
Eric: Yes. Stephanie. She and I were married almost 300 years.
Eric: She passed away last year.
Quinn: I heard. I'm so sorry for your loss.
Eric: Funny story about that photograph -- the first time I kissed another woman in this room, that picture came crashing to the floor.
Eric: Yes. It did. It horrified Taylor and me.
Quinn: You're kidding.
Eric: No, I'm not. I think her eyes actually move in that photograph. They follow me at night.
Quinn: She's keeping tabs on you.
Eric: She said she would.
Eric: She told us all before she died that, uh -- to watch out for bluebirds. And if we saw any, it would be Stephanie saying hello. And I swear, ever since then... I see bluebirds out here in the garden all the time.
Quinn: That's really beautiful. Oh. I'm so sorry. I just realized -- I-I'm not interrupting you and -- and Taylor?
Eric: No, no. Taylor's not here. She's, uh -- she's not here. I'm alone. She's in paris. She's visiting Steffy, her daughter. It's not clear to me when she's coming back, actually.
Quinn: Steffy, who's... married to Liam... Wyatt's half-brother.
Eric: Yes, and it's even more complicated than that, because now Liam is engaged to hope.
Quinn: Ah. Yes, hope. My son is very taken with her.
Eric: I'm not at all surprised. She's a charming girl and gifted, and...in fact, you have hope to thank for this new partnership.
Hope: Liam is insisting that I cancel the contract between Quinn and Wyatt.
Brooke: Wow. I didn't realize he'd be so upset.
Hope: I mean, I understand where Liam is coming from. You know, he just wants to protect our relationship. He trusts me. He doesn't trust Wyatt. He thinks that he's just gonna get in the way and cause problems for us.
Brooke: Is Liam right? Do you have feelings for Wyatt?
Hope: I wouldn't say I have feelings for him.
Brooke: But...you like him.
Hope: Yeah. He's a fun guy to be around. I just -- I feel bad now because I'm the one who brought the contracts to Quinn and Wyatt. That was me. How can I back out now? And I love Quinn's designs. They're beautiful, and I think that we would work so well together. And -- and Liam just wants to forbid it.
Brooke: You know how I feel about Liam. I like him, and I support your relationship. But you two have been through some hard times, and he did hurt you. So having him sweat it... might be a good thing.
Liam: Goodbye, Wyatt.
Wyatt: [Laughs] You're threatened by me -- my presence here in your life, my relationship with hope.
Liam: Well, clearly, you want me to be threatened by you.
Wyatt: Well, it wouldn't be an issue if you would just follow through with your commitment with her.
Liam: Oh, god. Don't even.
Wyatt: You've been playing her for years. She deserves someone's complete, undivided attention and devotion. She hasn't been getting that from you, and she knows it.
Liam: Hope tell you that? Or is unsolicited relationship advice part of your charm?
Wyatt: I listen. I observe. I breathe everything in. And from what I can tell, yeah, hope loves you. But it's taken a toll on her -- your indecision, your waffling back and forth. She's getting tired of it, man. She wants someone who'll give every bit of himself to her.
Liam: And that's you.
Wyatt: Hey. What if Steffy came back right about now? How would you feel? What would you do? Hey, better yet, why don't we just gas up the jet and go to paris, huh?
Liam: Why on earth would I want to do that, Wyatt?
Wyatt: Because you are still in love with her. You'd have to be, if you'd dump hope for her.
Liam: I -- let me tell you something. I have never dumped hope...not that it's any of your business at all.
Wyatt: You only went back to hope after Steffy left you and went to paris. Hope's your consolation prize, and she deserves a whole lot better than that.
Liam: Do not presume to tell me who hope is or what she deserves. She is my fiancÚ, and she's gonna be my wife. And you think you have a shot because she offered you a job?
Wyatt: [Chuckles] Well, I guess we'll have to wait and see what happens, huh?
Liam: You know, you really ought to think twice about sticking your nose where it doesn't belong. Don't get too comfortable. You never know what might happen.
Wyatt: [Laughs] Are you threatening me?
Liam: No. No, because, ultimately, your job isn't my decision.
Wyatt: But the decision's already made. Don't...interfere. My mother and I have been working for years to get this kind of a huge opportunity.
Liam: You know what I think is really funny? Uh, you telling me not to interfere.
Wyatt: Well, the contracts are already signed.
Liam: Come on, now. This is the big leagues. You think Forrester doesn't have an out clause in every single one of their contracts? They have to. Because sometimes... it's just not a good fit.
Wyatt: [Chuckles] You really do want me out of here, don't you?
Liam: Well, like I said, it's not up to me. I don't work here.
Wyatt: Yeah, you want me out of your world. You've always been the Spencer prince, juggling two gorgeous women at the same time, the one and only uncontested big man on campus. But you haven't had any competition before, have you? That's why you don't like me. Because I make you work just a little bit harder. I scare you a little, don't I? Because this perfect, little world that you've created -- just putting forth just a little bit of effort to possibly keep the girl? Well, those days are over... because now you've got me to contend with. And I'm not going anywhere.
Quinn: We've assembled a really great team of people over the years, but mostly, it's just been Wyatt and me. I love working with my son, and I'm grateful that he's taken such an interest in the business. But he's always wanted the opportunity to move the company to the next level. And now we have it.
Eric: I have a lot of respect for anybody who's been able to hold a family business together.
Quinn: You -- you manage to do it seamlessly.
Eric: Yeah, uh, well, I'm glad it appears that way.
Quinn: [Chuckles] I have read so much about you over the years. I have admired you from afar.
Quinn: And, um... well, I have to say, Eric, I expected a successful man like you to be... tough and mean, like bill Spencer.
Quinn: But you're not. You're -- you're a warm and gracious gentleman.
Eric: Thank you, thank you.
Quinn: No. Seriously, how do you stay so -- so modest and humble with all of this?
Eric: Oh, uh, my children see to that. Every time I think I'm cool, they assure me I'm not.
Quinn: [Laughs] Oh, yes, I know that feeling.
Eric: Look, any credit for any success that I've had, I give to that woman up there -- that strong, talented lady there -- for keeping me on point, focused all these years. I'm just getting to know you, but I think maybe you're cut from the same cloth -- dedicated, talented, self-sufficient.
Quinn: Oh, wow. I-I take that as quite a compliment, coming from you.
Eric: It's not easy being a designer -- I know. You've really done well for yourself. Good for you.
Quinn: Thank you. I know you say hope deserves all the credit for this partnership, but you're C.E.O., Eric. You are the driving force behind Forrester creations. Cheers.
Hope: I want to make the right decision for our company, but I know I also have to do what's right for me and my relationship. I mean, if working with Wyatt might ruin my relationship with Liam, then is it really worth taking the chance?
Brooke: I don't agree with the position that Liam's putting you in, but I do understand. He's trying to avoid any problems for the two of you.
Hope: I mean, I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy the attention from Wyatt. I do. He's a fun guy. I feel like I'm disrespecting Liam by ignoring the way he feels. You know, I don't want to make him uncomfortable or risk losing him. I love him. He's my fiancÚ, and if it's important to him, then... [Sighs] ...I have to break the contract with Quinn and Wyatt.
Brooke: If you feel that that's what you have to do... then I support you.
Hope: I have to. I have to. All right. I'm gonna go tell Eric that I changed my mind.
Wyatt: Well, I'm not backing off. If you want hope as much as you say that you do... then you wouldn't have a problem fighting for her.
Liam: You're wasting your time.
Wyatt: Well, I don't see it that way. I am interested in your fiancÚ�E. And that might not be bro code or guy code or whatever code. But I'm not going to hide it.
Liam: Well... at least you're honest.
Wyatt: Look, if you just treated her better, then maybe I'd leave you alone. But I want hope to see that she deserves a whole lot more than you're giving her.
Liam: Look, Wyatt, we're good, okay? Hope and I are good. She already chose me.
Wyatt: Yeah, and she chose me to work for her. That's her decision, too. But, hey, if she wants a-a tofu-eating yoga boy, well, you'll just prance right down that aisle, and that'll be that, right? But if she wants a guy who will put her before anything or anyone else...
Wyatt: [Chuckles] Well, like I said... that's a decision that she's gonna have to make, too.
Liam: The decision's already been made. She's gonna be my wife.
Wyatt: Right. "I do." If those words come out of her mouth... then I will back off. That's a line that I will not cross. But until then... game on, brother.
Quinn: Working with a prestigious company like Forrester creations -- it's a game changer. I don't think I've ever worked with a company with such a stellar reputation.
Eric: I look forward to working with you, too.
Quinn: And Wyatt is beyond excited, too. I mean, you really are fulfilling a young man's dream.
[Knock on door]
Eric: Uh, excuse me for a minute.
Eric: Make yourself comfortable.
Eric: Hope? Hi.
Hope: Hi. Um, do you have a minute to talk? It's kind of important.
Eric: Sure. Come in.
Hope: Thank you. [Sighs] So... I know we've already made the deal with Quinn artisan jewelers, but... I've changed my mind, and I would like to rescind our offer.
Eric: Uh, w-why?
Hope: Uh, well, you know, I've thought about it a lot, and I-I just don't think that it's the right fit. And it would just be easier or better to go with a different company. And, you know, there were a lot of really great ones to choose from.
Eric: But you said yourself that their designs were far superior to any of the other candidates, and I have to agree. And besides, we already have a signed contract.
Hope: Well, legal shouldn't be a problem. I can talk to them. I really just wanted to let you know as soon as possible that I changed my mind.
Eric: No. We have to follow through with this, all right? We have an agreement. Papers have been signed. This is business.
Hope: I know, but, Eric --
Eric: Hope... no. You can't just change your mind and back out. Now, we've made a commitment. We have to stick to it. What are we if we're not people of our word? Now, Forrester is the best because we work with the best people in the world. Quinn's designs are extraordinary. They're really wonderful, and they're a perfect complement to hope for the future. And she and her son are here to stay, and this decision is final.
Hope: Okay. I understand.
Eric: I think, in the end, you'll be very happy with this.
Hope: Okay. Thank you. I'll -- I'll see you tomorrow.
Quinn: Thank you. I-I couldn't help overhearing what you said to hope. You have no idea how much this means to me.
Eric: What'd I tell you?
Quinn: [Chuckles softly]
