Eric: Look, you're angry with Quinn, and you have reason to be. I-I understand that. I'm not discounting your feelings.
Steffy: I think you are.
Eric: No. I'm wondering if there's more to it.
Steffy: I warned Quinn. I told her what would happen if she didn't leave you alone.
Eric: I don't think you left your husband to get back at his mother.
Steffy: I left because I couldn't take it anymore. Quinn won't stop, so I can't have any connection to her.
Eric: Steffy, Quinn lives with me. She works at Forrester. Now, living apart from Wyatt is not gonna get her out of your life. So, I have to ask again. I mean, is this just an excuse to get closer to Liam?
Liam: You want me to respect
Wyatt: Yeah. I've been kind of beating that drum for a while now.
Liam: Yeah, well, the situation's changed, Wyatt. She moved out. She's living with her brother.
Wyatt: Yeah, but she's still my wife, man.
Liam: And Quinn is still your mother. See, I am not the problem.
Wyatt: Yeah, but you're not doing anything to help the situation, either, are you?
Liam: Look, okay, I get it. I get it. You're -- you're worried about how this is gonna affect you and your relationship. I get it. But what I am concerned about is Steffy and getting her away from your mother. [Clears throat]
[Knock on door]
Ivy: Hi, Quinn.
Quinn: I didn't know you were back in the states.
Ivy: Well, I came back as soon as I heard what was going on. I see you're back at Forrester.
Quinn: Yeah. Very happy to be back.
Ivy: Oh, yeah. I bet.
Quinn: I don't expect everyone to feel the same way.
Ivy: Well, I mean, you can't blame people for being a little shocked. [Chuckles] I mean, what's going on between you and my uncle Eric -- it's -- it's unbelievable.
Quinn: If you came all this way to give me a hard time about my relationship with Eric, then you should just take a number.
Ivy: [Chuckles] Eric's an adult. His personal life is his business.
Quinn: Mm. Even if it includes me?
Ivy: Well, that's your business.
Quinn: You said you came back because you heard what was going on.
Ivy: Oh, Quinn, I didn't really fly all the way from Australia just to give you a lecture.
Quinn: Then why are you here?
Ivy: [Sighs] Look, I miss Forrester creations. I really want my job back. And I'm hoping you can help me.
Wyatt: You're not fooling me. You know that, right?
Liam: I'm not trying to. Steffy's wellbeing is my number-one priority.
Wyatt: Oh, but that's not the only thing that's on your mind, now, is it? Huh? Oh, wow. Look. This -- this looks like a really romantic setting here, and I don't think I have to ask who it's for.
Liam: I care very deeply for Steffy. You know that. I'm not gonna pretend I don't.
Wyatt: This is a difficult time for us, Liam. Now, you're supposed to be Mr. Integrity. Why don't you start acting like it?
Eric: Steffy, I have the feeling that this separation has more to do with Liam than it does with Quinn.
Steffy: You didn't move in with Liam, granddad.
Eric: Steffy, leaving your husband is not gonna change how I feel about Quinn.
Steffy: Well, I'm sorry to hear that.
Eric: It can't surprise you. I've made myself very clear.
Steffy: And I thought I did, too. Nobody supports this. We're worried about you, granddad. Your involvement with Quinn is dangerous. That's what this is about. My marriage, my family are in trouble because of Quinn and her manipulations.
Steffy: Is that her?
Eric: The office, where you and I should both be right now.
Steffy: You want me to work with Quinn?
Eric: Well, wasn't it you, I recall, that wanted to keep her on when Ivy left?
Steffy: Do I -- do I have to go down the list of all the awful things she's done to our family? Liam told you what Quinn did to him, a-a-and you tried to break it off with her. You must realize the kind of woman she is.
Eric: Was. Was. That's not who she is anymore. Look, everything that you're describing now is in her past. I don't excuse any of the stuff that she did, but that's history.
Steffy: She's affecting people's lives, especially mine.
Eric: Quinn is not the only problem in your marriage.
Steffy: She put us on this path.
Eric: She's changed since then. Look, give her a chance. Let her prove it. She's not gonna hurt you again, Steffy. She's not gonna hurt anyone.
Steffy: She will. You most of all, because we warned you. When everything goes wrong, you're gonna remember that -- that we told you what she's capable of.
Eric: I have to trust my instincts.
Steffy: She's using you!
Eric: She hasn't asked anything of me.
Steffy: She arranges everything in her favor. She -- she -- she uses people to get what she wants. She doesn't ask, granddad. She manipulates.
Quinn: So, you want back at Forrester creations.
Ivy: [Sighs] Look, with Steffy and ridge in charge, that really didn't seem very likely, but with Eric as C.E.O. And you back in charge of the jewelry line...
[Sighs] Quinn, I learnt so much working with you. My -- my designs just went to a whole other level.
Quinn: Have you done much since you left?
Ivy: No, it's, uh -- it hasn't quite been the same. I mean, Forrester creations is such a special place. It's so creative.
Quinn: Well, I credit your uncle for that.
Ivy: Uh, Dad tells me that you two are living together now.
Quinn: So, that's what this is about. You want me to -- you want me to put in a good word for you with Eric.
Ivy: Well, we made a pretty good team before.
Quinn: I also ran the line on my own before.
Ivy: [Sighs] Quinn, Forrester Creations and L.A. feels like home to me. I want to come back. I'd be so grateful if you could find something for me. It doesn't matter what it is. I will do anything.
Wyatt: Just let up a little bit. Can you do that?
Liam: Will Quinn let up a little bit? Will she back off of Steffy and her family?
Wyatt: I am asking you, brother to brother, give my marriage a chance.
Liam: Well, how many chances do you need? Because how many times did you tell Steffy you can handle your mother?
Wyatt: Hey, I have been dealing with my mother my entire life.
Liam: Yes! I know! Exactly. And you can't control her.
Wyatt: [Scoffs] Come on.
Liam: Look, Wyatt, Wyatt, this thing with Eric -- yeah, that was the last straw, okay? But it started with your wedding. That was the goal, and it worked. You and Steffy wouldn't be married right now if it weren't for Quinn.
Wyatt: I completely disagree with you. Regardless, you can't use that logic that my mother did something to you, so, therefore, you get to do something to me. No. No, no, no. How many chances have you had? Look, my feelings for Steffy -- they're not -- they're not a fabrication, Liam. They're real.
Liam: So are mine.
Wyatt: You want another shot with her?
Liam: Yeah, I do.
Wyatt: Another failed attempt to make it work, is that it?
Liam: Look, I'm sorry, okay? I'm sorry. I see how stressed out you are. Your mother put you in a terrible position, and I take no pleasure in this. But I also believe that Steffy and I will be together. That's gonna happen, okay? Sooner or later, Steffy and I are gonna continue the life that Quinn stole from us. [Sighs]
Ivy: I'm sure things have been a little rough since you and Eric announced your relationship.
Quinn: Eric's taking more heat than I am.
Ivy: Well, he won't get any from me. And neither will you.
Quinn: If I agree to talk to him for you.
Ivy: I feel like he'll listen to you.
Quinn: [Chuckles] You sound pretty sure about that.
Ivy: Yeah, well, from what I hear, he's not really listening to anyone else. [Chuckles]
Quinn: Still, don't you think it's a bit odd -- you coming to me looking for an ally?
Ivy: Quinn, I can be one, too. Look, okay. You and I have had our fair share of problems, but we've worked through most of them. I'm not overly proud of my behavior last year. But I'm hoping we can take all of that and just put it behind us, 'cause I'm coming back to L.A. With a whole new perspective. And I feel like you being with my uncle Eric, you've got one, too. Look, reviving this line all by yourself -- it's a big job. I know you could use an extra pair of hands, someone to have your back. You can trust me, Quinn. I'll be loyal to you.
Quinn: Let me think about it, and I'll get back to you.
Ivy: Thank you.
Steffy: Am I interrupting something?
Steffy: You said you needed to see me.
Liam: Uh, yeah. Yeah, I did. And you need this -- some space to breathe, space to relax, drink some champagne, watch the sunset like you used to. Listen, just a place to feel safe and cared for.
Steffy: I don't know what to say.
Liam: You don't have to say anything.
Steffy: This is all really complicated.
Liam: Yeah. Yeah, it is. I know. But it doesn't have to be here. I mean, this -- this was our home. We had some good times under this roof. We were happy. And I happen to believe that we will be again. And I think you believe that, too.
Steffy: Um... so, uh, my -- my grandfather came to see me today. He, uh, had something to ask me -- if I, um -- if I was using the whole Quinn situation as an excuse.
Liam: Excuse for what?
Steffy: To leave my husband and come back to you.
Liam: What did you tell him?
Wyatt: Tell me it's over.
Quinn: Oh, you got my text.
Wyatt: Tell me that you have come to your senses, you're packing up your things, you're not working here, and you're not living with Eric.
Quinn: Not quite.
Wyatt: Well, it's the only thing I want to hear right now, mom.
Quinn: I'm sorry, honey.
Wyatt: I don't need that. I don't want that. I don't want an apology. I need you to -- to -- to, like, stop what you're doing. That's what I need you to do.
Quinn: Eric and I are very happy.
Wyatt: I don't care.
Wyatt: You are ruining my life, and that is not an exaggeration. This isn't like when I was a kid. Everything that you are doing right now is impacting my life in a very negative, very real way.
Quinn: I don't want that.
Wyatt: Oh, okay. Then just pack up your things. Go home.
Quinn: Honey, if you would just listen to me.
Wyatt: No. Do you understand? Do you have any idea what this is costing me? Huh? Do you even care?
Quinn: Of course I do.
Wyatt: Oh, really? 'Cause Steffy left, and if you keep this up, my marriage could end.
Quinn: No, it won't. I will not allow that to happen.
Quinn: I can't stand seeing you this way. I hate what this is doing to you.
Wyatt: Yeah, but you're not gonna stop, are you?
Quinn: You're asking me to make an impossible choice -- your happiness or, for the first time in my life, mine.
Wyatt: Isn't that what you've said to me my entire life? That my happiness meant everything to you? Were those just words?
Quinn: [Sighs] Eric is a good man.
Wyatt: I know.
Quinn: He treats me really well. He helps me to be a better person.
Wyatt: Oh, don't even tell me that you've changed.
Quinn: I have changed! Eric has seen it. I know you've seen it. And in time, Steffy will, too.
Wyatt: No, Steffy is gone, mom. Steffy moved out of our house because of you. Because you couldn't do the one thing, the one thing that we asked you to do, which was just stay away. And you even said you were gonna do it. Yet here you are. You're working at Forrester. You're moving in with Eric.
Wyatt: You know, Steffy said that you couldn't be trusted. And you know what? I think she's right. But I gave you the benefit of the doubt, and guess what? Now she doesn't trust me either.
Quinn: But you didn't do anything wrong.
Wyatt: No, I believed you. And that was wrong.
Wyatt: My marriage is seriously in jeopardy right now. I was over with Liam earlier. You know what he was doing? He was setting up a-a romantic get-together for Steffy. Hell, she could be over there right now for all I know. And it's only a matter of time before he and Steffy get back together, because the way things are going, he might as well be right.
Quinn: You can't. You can't let her go over there.
Wyatt: Hey, she's free to do whatever she wants. And right now, she doesn't want me.
Quinn: Of course she does. She does! She just --
Wyatt: What? What is it? What are you gonna say?
Quinn: Your marriage -- it -- it isn't over, okay? We will figure something out.
Wyatt: That is the last thing I want to hear you say right now.
Quinn: Wyatt, I will do everything in my power to make sure that your marriage doesn't end.
Wyatt: And that scares me more than anything you could have said.
Steffy: My grandfather knows how I feel about you, how hard this has been on me.
Liam: Yeah, well, he's concerned.
Steffy: But he won't do anything about it. That's why he asked about you.
Liam: What did you tell him?
Steffy: That I'm married to Wyatt and we are apart because of Quinn, that's why I left. Look, this is about Quinn. This is about getting her out of my life and away from my grandfather.
Liam: Did he believe you?
Steffy: I don't know. I don't know. But it's the truth. I just -- I need to get Quinn out of my life. That's all I can really think about right now. You know, there's just so much at stake -- my family, my -- my marriage.
Liam: What about your happiness? What about that?
Steffy: Like I said, it's complicated. Liam, I mean, this -- all of this -- like, I am -- I'm so -- I'm so touched. You know, there's a part of me that wants to just stay here with you, just go back to the way it used to be. But I can't. And...I can't go back to Wyatt, either. Look, I-I don't want to hurt him. I-I'm stuck. I don't want to hurt him. I don't -- I don't want to see you like this.
Liam: [Chuckles] It's not you. Steffy. It's not you.
Liam: It's Quinn. Quinn did this to us. Quinn created this whole situation. Now, I know. Your -- your grandfather thinks she's changed. Maybe Wyatt thinks that, too. I'm not -- I'm not sure. But you and I know better, right? Quinn doesn't change. She's not capable of it. She uses people to her advantage. Just like she used us.
Wyatt: Steffy is gone. Steffy moved out of our house because of you. My marriage is seriously in jeopardy right now. I was over with Liam earlier. You know what he was doing? He was setting up a-a romantic get-together. Hell, she could be over there right now for all I know.
[Cell phone rings]
Quinn: I thought about what you said.
Ivy: Will you help me?
Quinn: Did you mean it?
Ivy: [Chuckles] Absolutely. Quinn, I want to come back to Forrester. I'll -- I'll do anything. If you don't want me on the jewelry line, I'll just -- I do something else.
Quinn: Did you mean that you would be loyal to me?
Quinn: I need that. Now more than ever. And if you can do that, then I think there can be a place for you here at Forrester and in Los Angeles.
Ivy: I'll take it, whatever it is. Thank you so much, Quinn. I am tremendously grateful.
Quinn: Ivy, I'm not making you any promises, but you were right. I can't do this alone. I could really use you, Ivy.
