Proofread By Nikky
Ridge: All right, let's try not to bombard Liam with too many questions. We're here to celebrate his return.
Eric: This is nice. Very thoughtful of you.
Zende: I hope Liam's up for it.
Rick: It's not like he hasn't had enough surprises since he's been home.
Maya: Yeah, I'm sure he'll appreciate it.
Ridge: Let's hope so.
Caroline: Hey. Did you see the news? 'Cause it was all over the internet.
Ridge: Caroline, it was an accident. We had nothing to do with that man's death.
Caroline: But what if somebody finds out that he was your doctor?
Ridge: They won't. There's no way anyone's gonna find out our secret.
Thomas: Champagne, champagne, champagne.
Thomas: You want some? You want some? No, you're not old enough for this. I will have the guys bring down some more ice buckets for this.
Ridge: Thank you, Thomas.
Thomas: Where's the little man?
Caroline: Ah. He is in the photo studio, being doted on by models.
Thomas: Look at that. He's already taking after his father.
Pam: I made this batch of vegan bars just for Liam.
Charlie: Well, I bet he missed those when he was Quinn's cabin boy.
Pam: Right? I never thought I'd be so eager to see him again. That guy has really been through the wringer.
Charlie: Yeah, well, I always knew that Quinn was a stage 5 wackadoodle.
Pam: Yes, you did, my handsome detective.
Pam: Charlie, you're the one who found that security footage of Quinn and Liam in the parking lot.
Charlie: Oh, come on. It was all part of the job, you know?
Pam: That was you. Oh, Bill! You're probably here for Liam's party. I'm just going in now. You can come in with us.
Charlie: Brains before beauty. [Chuckles]
Caroline: Hey, uncle Bill.
Caroline: Where's the man of the hour?
Bill: Actually just texted me. He's on his way up. Thank you for doing this.
Ridge: Yeah. It won't make up for what Quinn did to him, but at least he knows he has people thinking about him.
Bill: He needs a support system right now, everyone coming together.
Caroline: Is there any word on Quinn?
Bill: Still on the run.
Caroline: It's just so creepy knowing that she's still out there somewhere.
Bill: Yeah, tell me about it.
Ridge: Let me get you a drink.
Rick: Excuse me.
Pam: Oh, that's okay.
Rick: Ridge, question -- were you at Il Giardino the other day?
Ridge: What? Uh, no.
Rick: So, you weren't there at all?
Ridge: What are you -- I don't have time for this right now.
Brooke: I'm assuming you're here for Liam's party.
Katie: Yeah. Yeah, I am. But I wanted to talk to you first.
Eric: So Quinn takes Liam, she kidnaps him, keeps him in a cabin somewhere, all this time. Why would she do that?
Bill: Because she's out of her freakin' mind, Eric. As far as she's concerned, she was doing it for Wyatt -- so he could marry Steffy.
Ridge: How you doing?
Steffy: I'm okay.
Wyatt: Yeah, we're just trying to handle this situation as best as we can.
Bill: Hey! There's my boy! And you cleaned up, too, didn't you. I like it. Come here.
Liam: Dad, what -- what are you all doing here?
Ridge: We're here to welcome you back, show our support.
Bill: The Spencers and the Forresters have come together for you. That's how much you mean to us. To all of us.
Brooke: I'd like to hear you out and listen to what you have to say, but now is not a good time. Everybody's gathered in Ridge's office, and I have to meet with a supplier.
Katie: I'm sorry.
Brooke: It's okay. We'll catch up later.
Katie: No, no, I mean I'm sorry for...the other day. The way I treated you. I overreacted, and I wasn't fair, and...I can't blame all my problems on you.
Liam: Thanks, guys. I -- I, um... it's great to see you all. Uh, really, and you didn't have to do this.
Maya: We were all so worried about you, Liam. Really.
Charlie: So, uh, how's the old noggin?
Liam: Better, yeah. Uh, not 100%, but the MRI's clear, and, uh, I'm... I'm remembering more and more.
Zende: Two concussions back to back? I mean, no memory at all?
Liam: Yeah, it's -- I know, it's -- it's, uh, crazy to me, too. But, uh... I didn't know who I was. I was living a made-up life.
Pam: That Quinn, she really is some kind of monster.
Charlie: Oh, she'll pay. The law will find her.
Eric: He's right, Wyatt. Your mother will be found, and when she is, charges will be filed.
Wyatt: Absolutely. I agree. I mean, this -- this was insane. Off-the-charts crazy.
Zende: That entire time she had you, she kept coming into the office.
Caroline: And she was acting all happy and wearing bright colors...
Thomas: You know, it's like she became an entirely different person.
Liam: I mean, I don't know. I -- I, uh -- I guess -- I guess she went through her own kind of metamorphosis thing, too. But at the end of the day, it's Quinn, you know? Deranged, sick Quinn trying to manipulate everyone. But I -- I'm back, and I'm better, and, uh... I'm gonna get my life back.
Bill: I want to thank Ridge for putting this gathering together in honor of my son. Means a lot to him, and it means a lot to me. All of you have been good to Liam, made him feel at home here. We're grateful to have you back. And if you can survive Quinn, you can survive anything. I love you, Liam. Proud to call you my son.
Liam: Thanks, Dad.
Wyatt: Uh, I'd like to say something, too, actually. I-I am so sorry about what my mother did to you. It was criminal and totally inexcusable, and I wish you never had to go through it. But what dad said was right. You're strong. You're a survivor. And all of us, we're gonna help you pick up those pieces... and move on.
Brooke: I want the best for you, Katie. I never meant to offend you. I never meant to make you feel disrespected.
Katie: I know, and I apologize for my behavior. I lost control of myself.
Brooke: I'm here for you, whatever you need. I will always take care of you.
Brooke: I'm seeing my therapist, and we're trying to work through everything, and... I realize that I'm... a little depressed. And it makes me feel inadequate and insecure.
Brooke: You don't have to feel insecure. Nothing will ever happen between Bill and me, ever.
Liam: I can't believe you thought I'd choose to miss out on Douglas' birth.
Caroline: I know. I mean, it seemed very unlike you, but wait till you meet him. He is amazing, and he already has that Spencer charm.
Thomas: Oh, please, come on. That boy is all Forrester. Takes after his big brother.
Bill: What are you talking about? Have you felt the grip on that kid? Clearly, he takes after his uncle.
Caroline: You see what you've been missing?
Eric: So, how is it, living at your mother's place?
Maya: Well, Brooke has been very welcoming.
Eric: I'm sure she loves the company.
Rick: Yeah, well, mom's been gracious, letting us crash there. But you know, dad, enough is enough. I want to move back to the Forrester estate, the home that Maya and I made. Only we can't because Ridge stole it from me, just like he took the company.
Eric: This is not the time.
Rick: Ridge has only been in the office three times in the past few weeks -- three times.
Maya: And, of course, we understand that he just had a baby...
Rick: Yes. But people are coming to me for guidance. Dad, I'm running international. Now I'm acting as if I'm C.E.O. because he's MIA.?
Eric: All right, look, I get it -- you're frustrated, all right? He'll be back before you know it. He's enjoying being with his newborn son.
Rick: You know, it's one thing to be an attentive father. But this is more than that. There's something else going on with Ridge.
Ridge: So, um... I assume Liam knows about... you guys and the wedding?
Steffy: Yeah. I, uh -- I told him last night.
Ridge: How did that go?
Steffy: He's not happy about it.
Thomas: Gonna sneak by you right there.
Bill: How you holding up, son?
Liam: Oh, let's see. I wasn't gone that long, and she married my brother, so... you'd think they'd wait a minute, see if maybe I'd turn up.
Bill: All right, Liam. I know it's hard to accept. It may not seem fair, but you have no choice. Listen to me. You have to respect their marriage.
Ridge: You need something stronger than that? Maybe break in to my dad's bourbon collection.
Steffy: I'm not quite there yet, but I'll let you know.
Ridge: How are you? How's your head? It's just me. Talk to me.
Steffy: I'm fine.
Ridge: You are?
Ridge: Liam's back. His disappearance, all those messages, was all a misunderstanding. It was Quinn manipulating the situation. So how do you feel about your marriage now?
Katie: Hey, sugar, good to see you.
Zende: Hey, how are those?
Caroline: Nicole just texted, and she's downstairs playing with Douglas.
Maya: Aww, she's getting ready for her auntie duties once the baby's born.
Rick: Dad, Ridge is always up to something.
Eric: Come on, Rick. Don't talk about your brother that way.
Rick: Did you happen to read about this doctor that got hit by the truck?
Eric: What doctor? What does this have to do with Ridge?
Rick: Well, a friend of mine saw him having a conversation the same day at Il Giardino.
Rick: So I asked Ridge about it, and he denied being there.
Eric: Well, then, obviously, your friend is wrong.
Rick: Or Ridge is lying.
Eric: What are you doing, Rick? You trying to imply that Ridge had something to do with this doctor being --
Rick: What do you mean what am I doing? Ridge is mysterious like that. He's never where he's supposed to be or who he's supposed to be with. He takes these long lunches, and not fulfilling his duties as C.E.O.
Eric: Look, Ridge is an artist.
Rick: Dad, if he's such a great artist, maybe he shouldn't be C.E.O.
Eric: Steffy's president. She's more than capable of pulling up the slack.
Rick: With all due respect, Steffy's a little consumed with herself. Ridge just had a baby. Who's steering the ship here? It should be me. And it will be me. And someday, Ridge is gonna do something that even you can't forgive.
Liam: I'm actually -- I'm gonna...
Ridge: Welcome back, man.
Caroline: Uh...Rick keeps staring at you. What -- what did he talk to you about earlier?
Ridge: He just asked if I went to Il Giardino.
Caroline: The day when...?
Caroline: Why would he ask you that?
Wyatt: Felt like you kind of needed to get away.
Steffy: Thank you.
Wyatt: Look... I know this is gonna be hard on you, with Liam coming back and having to tell him you're married and seeing him in that party. Look, and I know you feel bad about hurting him. Trust me -- I do, too. But we made a promise to each other that this wasn't gonna interfere in our life and our marriage, Steffy. Like... he's back now, and he's getting healthy, and we're all relieved about that, and we're all gonna help him get through it. But he's gonna have to move on, Steffy. He's got to accept that you're my wife now.
Liam: We need to talk.
Pam: You know, Charlie's the one who found the video of Liam and Quinn in the parking lot.
Zende: You don't say. Wait. Why were you looking at the security footage?
Charlie: Well, Rick asked me to find out who dinged his car.
Rick: I still don't know who did that.
Zende: It wasn't me.
Thomas: Hey, come on. Don't look at me. I treat my car like I'd treat my baby.
Pam: So you think maybe it was Ridge?
Rick: I don't know. I wouldn't put anything past that guy.
Ridge: [Clears throat]
Caroline: Rick must be suspicious of something.
Ridge: He always is when it comes to me.
Caroline: Yeah, but why would he ask you about the restaurant? I mean, that doesn't make any sense.
Ridge: Yes, it does. He's probably keeping tabs on me. He wants to weasel his way back into this office.
Caroline: But that specific restaurant on that specific day?
Ridge: He's just being nosy.
Caroline: But what if it's more than that? What if he looks into things? What if he figures out your medical history?
Ridge: Hey, hey. We're fine. Our secret is safe.
Thomas: [Laughing] That's terrible.
Ridge: Excuse me.
Katie: So, Brooke said that I didn't need to apologize and that... she could sympathize.
Bill: Well, I'm really glad the two of you are working things out.
Bill: I hope my boys can do the same.
Katie: [Chuckles] Hey.
Rick: Hey, aunt Katie, can I ask you a question?
Katie: Uh, sure.
Bill: Excuse me. I'm gonna get something to drink.
Rick: Were you at Il Giardino the other day?
Katie: Um, yeah. Why?
Rick: My friend saw you there, and he saw Ridge. Were you guys there together?
Katie: No. [Chuckles] No, of course not. I mean, we were at different tables.
Rick: Well, I asked Ridge about it, and he denied being there.
Katie: Oh. I don't know why he would do that.
Rick: Yeah, I don't know why he would do that, either. Did you happen to hear about that doctor that was killed by the truck?
Rick: Well, my friend saw Ridge talking to him at the restaurant.
Katie: Ridge's doctor is dead?
Rick: You knew him?
Katie: Uh... uh, no, n-not really. I mean, I, um... I-I met him that day. I saw Ridge talking with him, and it... seemed kind of intense.
Ridge: What are you doing out here?
Steffy: Liam wanted a moment alone with Wyatt.
Ridge: You never answered my question. Liam's here, so...
Steffy: Does that change anything?
Ridge: You're an incredible, capable young woman, and I would never suggest that you married someone that you're not in love with. But now that Liam is here, now that you know what happened to him... how do you feel?
Steffy: I'm happy he's okay. I'm relieved.
Ridge: I don't mean that. I-I mean, how do you feel... about him? You want him back?
Wyatt: You look good, man. I'm glad you're starting to feel better. We were all worried about you, you know? [Sighs] Okay. I get it. Just stop staring at me and say it. You want to dig at me, go ahead. I know you're pissed.
Liam: What makes you think that?
Wyatt: Look, Liam, I know this is -- I know this has been a shock to you, coming home and finding out Steffy and I are married. I know you want to kill me. But guess what -- there is nothing that we can do about it now. It's done. She loves me, and I love her. And we're all gonna have to find a way to just move forward.
Liam: Is this you telling me to back off? To give up on Steffy?
Wyatt: I don't want to get into a fight with you right now.
Liam: I don't want to get into a fight with you, either Wyatt. You're my brother. It's not fun for me.
Wyatt: I saw the way you were looking at here in there. I'm just asking you for a little respect! That's all. Respect for the fact that she is my wife now.
Liam: Your wife.
Liam: [Breathes deeply] Wyatt, the only reason you got anywhere close to Steffy is because of your lunatic mother, because she held me captive and kept me from the world. That was the whole plan -- so you two could get together. Don't you understand? We were all manipulated by Quinn but nobody more than Steffy.
Wyatt: Oh, what is that supposed to mean, huh?
Liam: It means you were married under false pretenses. Steffy married you because she thought that I would never, ever, ever come home. Well, I'm home. And I'm here to take back what's mine.
