Liam: I want to help you. Let me help you.
Steffy: No, it'll be fine.
Liam: No, it won't. Now your grandfather's involved, Steffy. Quinn is -- Quinn is going after all the people you care about. Trust me, I know what that's like. You shouldn't have to be dealing with any of this. Look at you. I can -- I can see it weighing on you.
Quinn: You said it was over.
Eric: It's not.
Quinn: Our families won't approve.
Eric: They should be happy for us. Isn't that what you said in Monte Carlo?
Quinn: Monte Carlo was a fantasy, Eric.
Eric: No. Monte Carlo was when I realized I... I had something wonderful with you. Something extraordinary. You encouraged me to embrace my future. I want you in it.
Rick: I don't believe this. Quinn Fuller? Doesn't even make any sense.
Ridge: You can say that about a lot of dad's relationships.
Rick: No, I refuse to believe it's even a "relationship," this thing with Quinn.
Ridge: Really? You didn't see how defensive he got when we questioned him?
Rick: Yeah, our questions made him upset.
Ridge: Sure did. He ran out of here like a 12-year-old boy. I just hope he didn't run all the way to Quinn's. For all our sakes.
Thomas: Ahh! Oh. Hey, Sasha. Uh, do you want to sneak in here?
Sasha: Uh, no, actually, I don't want to interrupt. Looks like you got a lot on your mind. I guess with Caroline and Douglas being gone, it must be hard.
Thomas: I've been checking up on them.
Sasha: Yeah? They doing all right?
Thomas: Yeah, they're good. Thanks for asking. I'm just -- I'm dealing with a lot right now.
Sasha: Well, do you want to talk about it? I'm a really good listener. Or if you want to just keep working out, I'm happy to just sit back and watch. You know, I don't mean to brag, but I've got some pretty good ears.
Thomas: And I appreciate them, along with many other aspects of you.
Sasha: [Laughs] Well, your aspects aren't so bad, either.
[Cell phone chimes]
Thomas: Sorry. Hang on one second. I got to catch this. [Groans] But, hey, have fun on your workout.
Julius: Ah, there you are. I've been looking for you.
Sasha: Really? There's something you forgot at the christening? Hmm, like, "I'm sorry, Sasha. I shouldn't have been such a jerk to you."
Julius: I wanted to make myself perfectly clear. You have no unfinished business here, Sasha. Zende and Nicole are back together again, and, well, Vivienne and I are slowly working it out. You've done what you came to L.A. to do. It's time for you to go home.
Rick: No word from Dad?
Ridge: But you're sure he left the building?
Pam: Charlie checked. And before you ask again, no, Eric hasn't returned yet.
Rick: That doesn't mean he's with Quinn.
Pam: [Scoffs] I mean, you'd hope not, right? After everything everybody's said to him.
Ridge: My dad doesn't like being told what to do.
Pam: [Scoffs] Seems to be kind of a family trait.
Ridge: All right, take it easy, pam.
Ridge: Let's just hope he's clearing his head. Alone.
Steffy: Quinn hurt you enough, and I don't want you taking on my problems with her.
Liam: Steffy, I want Quinn out of your life just as much as you do.
Steffy: I told you Wyatt is dealing with that.
Liam: Look at me. Wyatt can't see Quinn the way we do.
Steffy: And I can't see him the way you do.
Wyatt: [Chuckles] Here's a tip, bro. When I'm looking for my wife, don't let me find her in your arms.
Quinn: I want to keep seeing you too, Eric. But... I mean, this could jeopardize my son's marriage. Wyatt thinks I need to leave los Angeles.
Eric: If you listen to my kids, our involvement spells doom for everybody.
Quinn: That's a little over-dramatic, don't you think? But if that's the way they feel... Eric, I don't want to cause problems for you. Or for Wyatt or Steffy.
Eric: No, no, I know you don't. I don't, either. But we're adults, Quinn, capable of making our own decisions, and those decisions need to be respected.
Sasha: I am not leaving L.A., okay? I have a job here, all right? This is where I work.
Julius: Listen. You've accomplished a lot here, but this is Nicole's world. I mean, L.A. is her home. This is where she lives now. And quite frankly, Forrester Creations is her turf!
Sasha: Turf? Wow, Dad. Really? This town ain't big enough for the two of us?
Julius: Nicole and Zende don't need a reminder of their time apart.
Sasha: I haven't even brought that up once.
Julius: Your presence is a mere reminder.
Sasha: Mnh-mnh. Nope. Nicole doesn't have a problem with me being here. You do.
Julius: Vivienne and I are working very hard on repairing that which you almost destroyed -- our marriage. Now, listen. This is a very sensitive time for she and I. We need to be able to focus on each other and what our future holds.
Sasha: And I am not stopping you.
Julius: Again, you are a reminder of the past. I mean, if you're here, people will feel a need out of obligation to invite you to family gatherings. Now, Viv would never exclude you, but you've got to understand. It would always be awkward for her.
Sasha: For a while, maybe.
Julius: I am working very hard to get Viv to forgive me, and your presence is a constant reminder of her pain.
Ridge: Nothing from dad.
Rick: I didn't hear from him, either.
Pam: Maybe try an emoji? You know, like a little white flag. Truce. No hard feelings?
Ridge: The way he ran out of here really worries me.
Rick: He had to know we had questions.
Ridge: Yep, and he didn't want to give us answers. And now he's gone.
Rick: Steffy mentioned hiring a private investigator. What do you think about that?
Ridge: No, no, no. We're not there yet.
Pam: Eric will be back.
Ridge: Yeah, and when he does, you think he's gonna tell us where he's been? He's kept Quinn a secret.
Rick: It's all out in the open. There are no more secrets.
Ridge: But he's still alone, he's still a target. If Quinn comes back, she's gonna take advantage of him again.
Quinn: We knew our children wouldn't like this.
Eric: No, and I understand why. This is hard for Steffy.
Eric: She's trying to protect her marriage, trying to protect me. But I've been around long enough to know that people make mistakes and they regret them. And that people can change. You've certainly changed me.
Quinn: No, no, no. No, you have that backwards.
Eric: No, I don't. You energized me. You've encouraged me to take a look at the future. Fired me up about it. I told my family that. They tell me that I'm... a doddering old fool. They tell me it's a manipulation, it's all some kind of a game. It's so insulting.
Quinn: Eric Forrester, you are the most vital, exciting, intelligent, compassionate man I have ever, ever met. You are completely secure in who you are and what you can do. You are not a figurehead. You're a leader. I know what it takes to run a business. It takes -- it takes passion, courage, and commitment to make it a success. You haven't lost that. You have more of that than you know. You're in your prime.
Eric: I am.
Eric: I'm gonna text them. I'm gonna call them all in, get them in the office, and I'm gonna make some changes. Big changes.
Steffy: Liam came here because he's concerned.
Wyatt: Yeah, about you.
Steffy: About your mother.
Liam: And you.
Wyatt: Okay. I am not happy about my mother's behavior, but she has assured me she's out of Eric's life.
Liam: And you believed her? You know she lies to you, right?
Steffy: Quinn's tricked all of us. I need to know that she's not gonna do the same thing to my grandfather.
Wyatt: She won't, Steffy. Eric said the same thing. He broke it off with her. They're done.
[Cell phone chimes]
Steffy: It's my grandfather. He says he wants to see me, Rick, and my father in his office right away.
Wyatt: Did he say why?
Steffy: No. Just that he has something to tell us.
Sasha: I am not leaving L.A. And I'm not leaving my career just to help you make up with aunt Vivienne.
Julius: Career? Sasha. Models are a dime a dozen in this town. The only reason the Forresters are giving you work is because you're Maya and Nicole's sister.
Sasha: No. I got this job on my own. Just like you're gonna have to fix things on your own.
Julius: I didn't say you had to stop modeling, but there are agencies in Chicago. Good ones. And I'm sure that Maya and Rick would give you a glowing recommendation.
Sasha: Oh, why? 'Cause they want me gone, too?
Julius: There are agents in new York, in Paris. Go. Get yourself some experience. Then maybe you can come back.
Sasha: Oh, after everything's solid with you and aunt Viv and Nicole and Zende are probably married?
Julius: What you don't understand is because it's not a secret anymore doesn't mean it isn't an issue. It is. As long as you are here in L.A., no one can move on. You need to go, Sasha. Listen, Viv is trying to get past this, but how can she when you show up at our granddaughter's christening?
Sasha: I --
Julius: It only reminds her of all of the holidays, you sitting right there at her table. I mean, the biggest lie that I ever told is sitting right there in front of her. You being here is a constant reminder of the biggest mistake that I ever --
Thomas: All right, you need to stop. Can you not see what you're doing right now? How on earth can you talk to your daughter that way? You're her father. Boy, you don't act like it. You can't keep blaming your problems on her. She was a little girl. She was your little girl. She obeyed you and she kept her daddy's secret.
Julius: If you'll forgive me, I'm talking to Sasha about things that affect my family.
Thomas: Uh, she is your family.
Julius: Clearly, you don't understand. This is a very complicated situation.
Thomas: No, sir. It's not. You made a mistake. You need to fix that. Sasha is your daughter. You need to treat her with that respect.
Julius: Oh, I get it. I see. You're the chivalrous gentleman. You want to protect her. I understand that. Listen, tom. I can assure you about is in the best interests for everyone, including her.
Thomas: I think it's in your best interests you leave right now.
Wyatt: You don't have to stay, Liam.
Liam: Are you kidding me? I want to know what's going on. What's Eric got to say to everybody?
Wyatt: [Scoffs] It's probably just business.
Liam: Mm, kind of seemed like a summons to me.
Wyatt: It was a little weird. Eric texts Steffy. Pam's right outside. She could have wrangled everybody up in seconds.
Liam: Well, right. Maybe Pam doesn't even know there's a meeting. See, now I got you curious, don't I? Or maybe a little worried? Are you worried?
Wyatt: Why would I be worried?
Liam: Because maybe your mother is lying to you.
Wyatt: My guess is that Eric is over there reassuring Steffy and the whole family that it is over between him and my mother.
Liam: Okay, fine. I hope you're right. I really do. I hope you're right.
Liam: For all our sakes. But I'm gonna stick around in case you're not.
Eric: Pam, everybody here?
Pam: Oh, yeah. They're all waiting for you inside. Eric. I just want to say something to you. I know that you've been feeling kind of lonely. Believe me, if anyone understands those feelings, I do. But... Quinn?
Steffy: Granddad, where have you been?
Ridge: I've been texting you.
Rick: Why haven't you answered your phone?
Steffy: Did you see Quinn?
Eric: Have a seat. I want to get started.
Ridge: Okay. [Clears throat] [Sighs] I know you don't like these questions, but we need some answers, and not just for the company -- for the family. So... did you see Quinn?
Sasha: Thank you, but you really didn't have to do that.
Thomas: Yeah, I did.
Sasha: That was incredibly sweet of you, Thomas, but you should know I'm not a saint. I've caused a lot of problems for Nicole and her family.
Thomas: You don't get to choose who your parents are. Julius cheated on his wife. You had nothing to do with that.
Sasha: I'm the result.
Thomas: Again, that's not your fault.
Sasha: I know my dad keeps talking about his great, big mistake, but I've also made a few of my own. I finally had a guy that I really felt like cared about me, and I completely screwed it all up.
Thomas: We all do weird things when we don't want to lose someone.
Sasha: Yeah, and I did some really stupid things.
Thomas: Who hasn't?
Sasha: Thomas, I mean mind-blowingly stupid, selfish, and hurtful.
Thomas: Like I said.
Sasha: [Chuckles] Thank you.
Thomas: Couldn't let him talk to you like that. I know he's your dad, but what he said, Sasha, that's -- that's not true. He should be ashamed of himself, not you.
Sasha: You know, it really feels like you understand.
Thomas: I do.
Sasha: I can't tell you how much that means to me. No one's ever stood up for me like that before.
Wyatt: Listen, bro. I got this. I already talked to my mother. She won't be a problem for Steffy. Whatever she had going with Eric, it's finished. She is totally out of his life.
Eric: I don't need to clear my appointments with you, Ridge.
Rick: You left the building.
Eric: I'm C.E.O. of the company. I was conducting business on behalf of the company.
Ridge: What kind of business?
Eric: I saw a problem that needed to be rectified, and I solved it, I believe.
Ridge: What was it?
Eric: I'll tell you. No, you know what? Better than that, I'll show you. Pam. Yes, yes, I know. Give me a minute. The jewelry line has virtually disappeared. I don't want that to happen. There's nothing new in the pipeline. We have to fix that. The jewelry line was a unique and critical part of our identity. Like hope for the future and Brooke's bedroom, it set us apart from other collection houses. I don't want that to fail. The collection needs a new designer. I've made a decision. I've hired her back.
Steffy: Who, Ivy? Ivy's coming back? That's -- that's who you're talking about, right? I mean, it has to be Ivy. No. Granddad, no! Absolutely not! Absolutely not!
