Wyatt: Mom, open up! We need to talk now! Mom! Open the door! It's important! Are you in there?
Quinn: You're sure about this? You want me to live here with you?
Eric: What is this? What is this in your hand?
Quinn: [Chuckles] It's official. [Chuckles] We're shacking up!
Eric: [Chuckles] Yeah.
Steffy: This is a nightmare that just keeps getting worse. We have to do something about Quinn. She can't come back to Forrester! She -- she can't have all this access to Granddad! [Sighs] God, this scares me to death.
Ridge: I'm afraid for him, too.
Liam: Yes. Exactly. Exactly. And you know something? That's what this foundation is all about. Okay, yeah. No, lunch it is. That's great. That -- of course I can introduce you to Steffy. All right, th-thank you again. Thank you so much. Yes.
[Knock on door]
Thomas: I know you weren't expecting me.
Liam: Uh, yeah. Should I have been?
Thomas: No. No, not at all. I just heard of some major changes brewing at Forrester I thought you should know. Eric rehired Quinn.
Liam: Are you kidding me? What is Eric thinking?
Thomas: Apparently he doesn't mind having her around. And -- and I just heard that from rick and Pam, who were in the meeting.
Liam: I guess I should be surprised. But I knew Quinn wouldn't stop. She never does. This is really bad, Thomas. Quinn being back at Forrester puts her way too close to Steffy.
Steffy: Ever since Quinn latched on, grandfather's just been making horrible decisions. I mean, asking you to move out?
Ridge: He didn't ask me. He demanded that.
Steffy: [Sighs] You know what this means? Quinn's gonna go over to the house whenever she wants. How -- how can granddad let this happen knowing everything that woman has done?
Ridge: Quinn's influence over dad is pretty obvious. He's not thinking clearly.
Steffy: Oh, my god. Do you think granddad will ask Quinn to move in?
Quinn: I used to go out sometimes, you know, just to -- just to get away and go to a bar and order a few drinks, and I'd listen in on the conversation. I would listen to these women talk about being in love and how their man treated them like a queen. [Chuckles] And I would think, "stupid women. How dumb and needy are you? First of all, relationships don't last, right? And second of all, be your own queen." [Sighs] But I get it now. Being here with you, this magical night that you've made for me... [Sighs] It doesn't matter if it lasts. The moment feels so good. You just -- just take it. Gratefully. [Chuckles]
Eric: I love how happy you are right now.
Quinn: [Chuckles] So many changes. So fast. I mean, going back to work at Forrester, moving in here with you... [Sighs] My heart is -- is so full. But I am not one of those giddy girls. Quinn's triumphant return did not go over so well with your family.
Eric: You noticed.
Quinn: Hmm. They're not going to react well when they find out you've asked me to move in here with you.
Eric: Don't worry. I'll handle my family.
[Knock on door]
Quinn: Another surprise?
Eric: Surprise for me. I'm not expecting anyone.
Wyatt: Eric. Look, I'm sorry to just drop by like this. I'm looking f-- oh, my god. You are here.
Liam: Steffy asked her over and over and over stay away. Very simple. Stay away. And what does Quinn do? She throws a hail Mary. She seduces Eric and convinces him to reinstate her at Forrester -- against Steffy's wishes, by the way. That's great.
Thomas: It's -- it's weird, you know. After everything that Quinn did to try and get Wyatt and Steffy back together, right, it's -- it's like she's deliberately trying to sabotage their marriage. You would think she'd -- she'd lay low and show Steffy that she can take direction and -- and prove herself, get back into the company.
Liam: Yeah. Yeah, well, the irony is that might have actually worked.
Thomas: Yeah. Well, I-I just wanted to let you know myself. You know, I-I know you're a good guy and that you'd do anything for my sister, which is ultimately why I think she should spend the rest of her life with you.
Steffy: There's no way grandfather would ask Quinn to move in, right?
Ridge: I don't know. I was hoping he asked me to move out so he could have some privacy.
Steffy: Oh, my gosh.
Ridge: Now with this woman back at the company --
Steffy: Who knows? Who knows what grandfather's thinking! But I know Quinn, and Quinn would love to live in that house.
Ridge: Yeah. And the way dad's been acting lately, anything is possible.
Steffy: Oh, no. I'm not gonna let this happen. I'm not gonna let that woman live in our family home. That was my grandmother's home. Wyatt needs to do something. We can't have this woman in our lives!
Wyatt: You know, I-I-I got to apologize for my mother. She doesn't exactly have impulse control, which I'm used to. Uh, she shouldn't be here, nor should she accept your very, very generous offer of reinstating her at Forrester.
Quinn: Wyatt, I haven't done anything crazy.
Wyatt: Yeah. You're here, aren't you?
Eric: Your mother's here because I asked her to be.
Wyatt: Seriously, Mom? You know how Steffy feels about this whole situation.
Eric: So do I, Wyatt. I love my granddaughter, and I hate that I'm upsetting her at all. But she does not dictate to my life, and anybody who thinks they can is being insulting and, uh, disrespectful.
Wyatt: Okay. Maybe one of you could tell me exactly where this all stands, because last I heard, whatever's been going on between you two is over. Now you're back at Forrester. I find you here. It's all just a little confusing for all of us.
Eric: Allow me to clarify. I've done that with my family. I owe you that, too. Your mother and I have discovered something really, really wonderful in each other. She brings happiness and joy to my life, something I didn't even know I was missing. And there's no part of me that wants to give up the happiness that we have together. As for reinstating her, she's an asset to the company. Having her on staff is, uh, just good business. And having her around is a great bonus. You should know. You should be the first to know. She and I have just made a decision about the next step in our relationship.
Wyatt: Oh. So there's a next step?
Quinn: Eric asked me to move in.
Eric: And she graciously accepted.
Wyatt: You're moving in here?
Eric: Now, you can like this or not. But nobody gets to tell the two of us how to live our lives. I'm hoping that you and Steffy and everybody else in the family will learn to accept it.
Eric: I'll give you some time alone with your son.
Quinn: Thank you.
Quinn: Honey, I know this is a lot to process. For me, too.
Wyatt: It doesn't matter what you say. It doesn't matter how you feel. You cannot move in here.
Liam: Well, I appreciate the support. Thank you.
Thomas: I care about my sister. I want what's best for her.
Liam: And you think that's me? Wow, that's -- [Chuckles] That's different. Usually all I'm used to hearing is "respect the marriage."
Thomas: And I do. For what it's worth [Sighs]... Steffy does what she says and she says what she means, and -- and she thought that you had abandoned her, that -- that you'd completely left her, you didn't like her anymore. So she had to let you go. She -- [Sighs] She let somebody else in. And she takes this thing seriously with Wyatt. She loves him. She -- she wouldn't have gotten married to him if she didn't. But I think that you're the real love of my sister's life.
Ridge: What if Wyatt can't affect the situation? He already tried. And Quinn and dad, they're closer than ever. What if he can't get that woman out of your life? What does that do to your marriage?
Steffy: I honestly don't know.
Ridge: What does Liam say about all this?
Steffy: It doesn't matter. I'm married to his brother.
Ridge: And you still think that was the right choice?
Steffy: I meant my vows. I wouldn't say them if I didn't mean them.
Ridge: And Liam was out of your life.
Steffy: I just can't have his mom, this -- this psycho, in my life! I don't want her near my family. I don't want her near Forrester.
Ridge: Makes you wish you could be with Liam instead?
Quinn: Honey --
Wyatt: Tell him not --
Quinn: I know this is a shock.
Wyatt: This is my marriage we are talking about here, okay? Steffy has been more than clear with you since the beginning of my marriage that she does not want you around. And then you come up with this brilliant idea to move into her family home with Eric? Seriously? Like, you -- you have something wrong with you!
Quinn: Why? Because I want to grab a little happiness?
Wyatt: Oh, come on!
Quinn: Don't I deserve that finally?! Look, look, this -- this was a surprise to me, too! I-I-I didn't expect to -- to click with Eric like this! I mean, it happened so fast, I could barely keep up!
Wyatt: That is a whole nother issue.
Quinn: What is?
Wyatt: This looks exactly the way that Steffy perceives it. You know that?
Wyatt: She came to you, she shut things down, and then you get all, "I'm gonna show her," and then you blatantly go after her grandfather!
Quinn: No! Come on! I don't -- I don't live my life to get a reaction out of Steffy! Things happened between me and Eric like -- like any other couple.
Wyatt: This is my wife, mom.
Quinn: I-I know. Nobody knows that better than me!
Wyatt: You scare her. She doesn't want you around her or her family. Why can't you just respect that?
Quinn: I have tried! I swear to you, I have tried. Do you have any idea what it's been like for me? This -- this solitary existence?
Quinn: Come on! When it was just you and me and you -- you lived -- you lived in my home, it was us against the world! But you grew up! You became a man, and you followed your own path and your own life. And you know what? Yes! I got lonely! That's how deacon got in! My typical man, the disposable man. But Eric's nothing like that. He's somebody that I can settle in with. He -- he -- he's kind and he's -- he's -- he's wonderful to me. He treats me like -- like -- he treats me with respect, like I'm important!
Wyatt: Any other time, I'd be overjoyed for you. If it were just someone that isn't Steffy's grandfather.
Quinn: Look, if we could just calm down and work together, I'm telling you Steffy and the rest of her family will -- will -- will accept me and Eric, you know, in time!
Wyatt: No, they won't! They won't! They're not going to accept that! And you cramming yourself down everybody's throats will destroy my marriage, and that is not okay with me. Do you understand? This -- this thing with Eric, it won't last. Your relationships with men, they don't last, except for the one that you have with me. And right about now, you are this close from blowing that one, too.
Thomas: I adore my sister. I want her to be happy.
Liam: But you don't feel she is with Wyatt?
Thomas: I think people can talk themselves into anything. Not -- not that their marriage didn't have potential, but Steffy was adamant. This is not a package deal, and Quinn forced her way in. That's -- that's a dealbreaker.
Liam: Yeah, well, it should be. Quinn is dangerous, and obviously she's not going away.
Thomas: Maybe that's a good thing. Not -- not the dangerous part. But Quinn's relentless presence. If Quinn's involvement in my grandfather's life is what forces Steffy back to you, I can live with that.
Ridge: You're in a safe room. Besides, you're not telling me anything I don't already know.
Steffy: Okay. I love Liam. And I never stopped. Even when I envisioned my future, I saw Liam. And when I moved to Paris and he was with hope, I-I still didn't think it was -- that it was done for us, that we were gonna find our way back to each other. We would have this family that we dreamed of. [Scoffs] Oh, my god. Liam and I would be married right now if it wasn't for Quinn. [Sighs] [Sighs]
Quinn: Please don't talk that way. Like you could walk out of here and write me off? I can't lose you, Wyatt.
Wyatt: Just bringing a much-needed dose of reality to this whole thing.
Quinn: I can't lose you, Wyatt. You have been my life since the day you were born.
Wyatt: So then this should make it a whole lot easier for you. The son who has been right by your side his whole life, supporting you, defending you, cleaning up after you or some fleeting romance that you just found.
Quinn: No. Eric and I found something. We found something real. I-I-I don't want to lose him, either.
Wyatt: You -- you swore to me that you were gonna respect Steffy's wishes and stay away from her and the Forresters. Like, does it even -- does it even matter to you that you're hurting me right now?!
Quinn: That's the last thing that I would ever want to do to you.
Wyatt: Yeah, well, you are putting your own selfish needs over my marriage! That's what you're doing!
Quinn: For the first time! For the very first time in my entire life! How many times have you told me, "Mom, get a life. Stop interfering in my own"? Well, this is me doing just that, making a life with a man who -- who treats me with respect! For the very first time in my life! Do you have any idea what kind of a gift that is? To -- to be accepted by a man for exactly the way I come? I don't want to lose the best thing ever, now that I finally have something else to live for besides you!
Wyatt: I swore to Steffy that I could get you to back off. I asked you to leave L.A.
Wyatt: And now you're moving in here? Like, do you have -- you have any idea how that's gonna go over with Steffy when she finds out, with my wife? That could be the end of my marriage! I mean, do you want to be the reason why we're torn apart?!
Quinn: Of course not!
Wyatt: So then stop this insanity, Mom! Stop it! Don't accept the job offer, and for god's sake, do not move in here!
Quinn: You don't know what you're asking of me.
Wyatt: No, I know exactly what I'm asking, and I am asking it anyway. That should tell you how important this is to me. You have to end this once and for all. You and Eric, it has to be over.
