Proofread By Nikky
Liam: So, how we gonna do this?
Quinn: We'll make a voice call, and that way, um, if I get the crank call when I'm alone, I can just -- I can just play it back.
Liam: I'm only gonna say this once. Stop calling. Get a life. Don't ever call this number again.
Quinn: [Sighs] Okay.
Wyatt: Mom? What are you doing?
Thomas: You know, it's not always easy, taking a good, hard look at yourself. That's what I've been doing in as painfully and honest way as possible. I know. I'm starting to think I should go on an apology tour. First stop -- right here with you.
Caroline: You don't have to be sorry to me.
Thomas: That's generous, but yeah, I do. You know, since I got back from Paris, I...haven't liked myself at all. Why did I become this guy? Why did I embrace him so completely?
Caroline: You have any answers?
Thomas: I don't have all the answers, but I can start with apologizing to the women that I've hurt. Especially you.
Caroline: Well, proceed with caution, because sometimes soul searching can take you places that you really would rather not revisit.
Thomas: Yeah, tell me about it. [Sighs] It's been a little unpleasant realizing how inappropriate and selfish and arrogant I've been.
Thomas: I'm not proud of it. [Sighs] You know, I've basically been a menace. Just hooking up with women to prove I can.
Caroline: Well, I -- [Sniffs] I applaud you for trying to change your ways.
Thomas: I need you to know something. My reasons for being with women haven't always been admirable. But it was different with you.
Wyatt: Mom? What are you up to?
Quinn: Up to? Nothing. You know, I was -- I was running a little late this morning, and as usual, I skipped breakfast, so feeling a little faint.
Wyatt: Why would you do that? I mean, why would you skip -- you know you get lightheaded when you skip breakfast. Sometimes I feel like I'm the parent, she's the child.
Quinn: Aww. Do you see how he loves me?
Thomas: Is, uh, is dad still out of town?
Caroline: Yes. Ugh. Please do not remind me. I miss him very much.
Thomas: I can imagine. Got to be honest, though, I'm -- I'm pretty glad he is. There's some stuff I've been meaning to talk to you about.
Caroline: Some stuff?
Thomas: Yeah. There's, uh... there's something I've been needing to say.
Caroline: Or not.
Thomas: It's about that night.
Caroline: We really don't need to talk about that, Thomas.
Thomas: Caroline, it happened. Pretending it didn't doesn't make it go away. It doesn't make it any less real. I-I just...
Caroline: It was one night. It was a misunderstanding, and -- and it's over, and we've moved on.
Thomas: And I'm super grateful that you've been able to move on, and the fact that we can still work together is -- is beyond me. But there's -- there's something for me that's been left unfinished.
Caroline: And you think that what -- rehashing everything is gonna give you some kind of closure? Why -- why --
Thomas: I don't want to rehash anything, Caroline.
Thomas: But this -- this whatever you want to call it, this journey, this self-examination that I'm on, it wouldn't be honest or complete if I didn't recognize my role in what happened.
Caroline: Well, obviously you're not gonna drop it, so just say whatever you want to say.
Thomas: You know, I've been -- I've been pretty deliberate in my pursuit of women. I-I see her and I-I move in, and I just start -- start tearing down the walls. It was never that way with you. When you called me on the phone, the way you sounded after -- after dad had ended things, I wanted to help you. I wanted to be or do whatever you wanted. And I came over, and -- and we started drinking, and... I just -- I wasn't myself, you know? I wasn't coherent, and then I-I had no idea you had taken pills. I-I just didn't. And it's not an excuse, but that's -- that's -- that's an explanation. Because I thought -- I thought that, um... I thought that, uh, you -- you wanted me, that, uh, you and I, uh... that you'd come to some realization about me. I was just, uh, I was just projecting, I guess. But you got to believe me when I say I would never take advantage of you deliberately, Caroline. I would never do that.
Caroline: Why are you doing this? Why are you bringing this up right now?
Thomas: Because I realize how wrong I was, Caroline. I can't -- I can't take back what I did or what I said or what I -- what I was thinking. I-I... but I should have known. I should have known that you were in no position to do what we did.
Caroline: [Inhales deeply]
Thomas: I should have been there for you. I should have been your friend. After everything that had just happened with dad, I should have listened to you. I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. I respect you so much, Caroline. And I know I haven't given you a great reason, but I want -- I want you to respect me, too.
Quinn: My name is Eve.
Liam: And my name? Do you know my name?
Quinn: Adam. I am also...your wife.
Quinn: Anything about the meeting with Rick that I should know about?
Wyatt: No. Not really. It's mostly international P.R. stuff that Liam was supposed to take care of. It's just been kind of a vacuum around here since he's been gone.
Quinn: Yeah, well, it's so strange, right? Hmm. I mean, it's so unlike him, Mr. Responsible, to take off like that.
Wyatt: Well, I think, uh, we're all kind of puzzled about the whole thing.
Quinn: And he didn't give you any idea where he was going?
Steffy: I'm afraid not.
Quinn: [Sighs] Well, I think it's -- it's really unfair. It's kind of like he's on some sort of power trip.
Wyatt: Okay, Mom.
Quinn: What? What?! I mean, Steffy is supposed to be this great love of Liam's life, you know, no mountain high enough. And, I mean, he hasn't even had the decency, I'm sure, to return any of your voicemails or your texts. I mean, it's like he's holding you hostage.
Wyatt: Okay, Mom, that's enough.
Steffy: No, your -- your mom's -- your mom's right.
Quinn: I am?
Steffy: That's exactly what Liam's doing. I'm like -- I'm stuck in place. I can't go back and change what happened that made him so done with me. I don't even know what I did. But I can't move forward until I know where we stand.
Quinn: Okay. Oh! Oh! I almost forgot. Um, your phone rang, uh, when you were in your meeting with Rick.
Steffy: [Gasps] Liam left a message.
Thomas: I'm looking forward to being a better friend to you, a better son to my father, and a better person all the way around, a man who takes responsibility for his actions and how they might affect others. But before I can do that, I have to -- I have to be completely honest here.
Caroline: You're doing a very good job.
Thomas: You know, I keep saying things were different. I had never felt the way about anyone the way I felt about you.
Wyatt: What are you waiting for? Don't you want to hear what he said?
Steffy: I'm not sure.
Quinn: I do.
Wyatt: Mom. Look, you need to know what that message says, right? So would it be better if we left? We can leave if you want.
Steffy: No, no, no, stay. I'll... I'll just listen.
Liamís voice: I'm only gonna say this once. Stop calling. Get a life. Don't ever call this number again.
Wyatt: What did he say?
Quinn: Oh, you don't even have to say a word. It's written all over your face. He blew you off, right?
Wyatt: Is that true?
Quinn: Oh. Sweetie, I am so, so sorry. Liam should be ashamed of himself. I mean, not even having the decency to break it off to your face.
Steffy: I don't -- I don't -- I don't understand how he could just turn on me like this. I-I didn't even have a chance to explain myself.
Quinn: I'm gonna tell you something. And you need to take this as a fact. If a guy breaks up with you from a distance and he doesn't give you the chance to -- to plead or -- or -- or explain or anything, then he doesn't want you. You have to let him go. Steffy, you're too good for that.
Wyatt: Okay, Mom. I'd like a moment alone with Steffy, please.
Quinn: Of course, you do. Steffy. You have a guy here, an amazing guy, who would never treat you this way.
Liam: I missed you.
Liam: Yeah. I was -- I guess I was getting kind of used to having you around all the time.
Liam: It was like... well, it was like Adam and Eve, last two people on earth.
Quinn: I guess so.
Liam: Hey, do we -- do I -- can I kiss you hello? Is that something we do?
Quinn: Yeah. Sure.
Quinn: Hi. Hmm. How are you feeling?
Liam: Uh, still groggy. Um, but the pain's a little better, so I guess that's progress. I, um... God, I was really trying to remember something, anything.
Quinn: Don't. Don't. I wouldn't put too much pressure on your brain, you know? It's still in healing mode, and, well, you can't force memories. I mean, they'll -- they'll either come or they won't, right?
Liam: Well, in the meantime, I have you and our new life together.
Quinn: This is true.
Liam: Hey, did you ever hear from that, uh, prank caller again?
Quinn: Uh, well, thanks to my Adam, um, I don't think it'll be a problem anymore.
Wyatt: Look, I won't even ask if you're all right.
Steffy: I can't believe what I just heard.
Wyatt: Do want to tell me what he said?
Steffy: Why don't you listen for yourself?
Liamís voice: I'm only gonna say this once. Stop calling. Get a life. Don't ever call this number again.
Wyatt: Are you kidding me?
Steffy: What am I supposed to do with that?
Wyatt: Do you even have to ask? "Don't ever call me again"? "Get a life"? That's -- that is the most absurd thing I have ever heard my brother say. How could he talk to you like that? Steffy, hey, hey.
Wyatt: He is not worth these, all right? He's not. How could he be so disrespectful to you? And this -- like, what? Look, I get it. It's weird. I even ask myself the same thing sometimes. Like, who are you and what have you done with my brother? But still, Steffy... it sounded like he meant what he said. I-I think your relationship is over with him.
Thomas: I-I don't want you to panic. I'm not coming on to you in any way at all. I just want you to know I'm done being a self-centered idiot. [Sighs] I'm done being this entitled brat. It's funny, 'cause my dad was right. It's weird how I can see myself through his eyes now.
Caroline: Ridge was really hard on you. And he's -- he's not perfect, either.
Thomas: Yeah, but he's changed. He changed, and he's responsible, and -- and he is, uh, he's committed to you. If I want to honor him, if I want to emulate that, then I have to look for the future, to being happy with my life and with a wife and a family.
Caroline: Wait, you... you want a family?
Thomas: It would be great to see little Forresters running around and terrorizing Pam.
Caroline: I thought that you said that you didn't want kids.
Thomas: I've always wanted kids. Just, uh... never really found the right person. But I'm open to the possibilities of what that might look like. You okay? What's going on?
Caroline: I don't know. I guess -- I guess you just, um... you just surprise me, Tom. [Sniffles]
Thomas: Here. In a good way, I hope, you know? That's, uh...
Thomas: What's going on?
Thomas: Hey, hey. Is it the baby?
Caroline: Oh. Oh, my God. I think I'm going into labor. [Whimpers]
