Bill: I don't have departure time yet. Just tell them to be on standby. What about the stella maris? Right. Skeleton crew. And, justin, I don't want anyone knowing I'm away, all right? Just send my calls over to wyatt. And remember, you and only you know where I am. All right, thanks.
[ Knock on door ]
[ Knock on door ]
Liam: All right! Coming! Coming.
Wyatt: Oh, so you are alive.
[ Sighs ] This wouldn't have to happen if you just answered your phone.
Liam: Oh, I, uh... yeah, I put it on silent last night.
Wyatt: Yeah. I pictured your dead, broken, mangled body at the bottom of that cliff, okay? I was worried about you.
Wyatt: Yeah. So, what happened with you and steffy? Did she come home last night?
Bill: You're here.
[ Door closes ]
Steffy: Yeah, well, i couldn't go into the office, and I was worried you were gonna call the house.
Bill: I knew I'd hear from you.
Steffy: I needed time.
Bill: Yeah, that's why the jet's ready and the yacht, because we do need time. Time to talk, time to think, time to make decisions.
Steffy: I'm not flying anywhere with you today.
Bill: Look, steffy, I-I know we're the kind of people that like to take things head on, but do you really think it's a good idea to stay in the line of fire right now?
Steffy: There won't be any of that.
Bill: Not even liam is that gentlemanly. I assume you went home to him.
Steffy: Of course.
Bill: How did he take it? About us.
Steffy: I didn't tell him.
Wyatt: Man. I mean, I hate to rub it in, but, like, turning to sally spectra? You really screwed up.
Liam: Dude, I know that. It was a huge, stupid, terrible mistake. I broke my marriage vows. I don't want to talk about it.
Wyatt: I'm sorry. You don't want to talk about it?
Liam: I don't want to talk about it.
Wyatt: You can't just bury your head in the sand and pretend like it didn't happen! You should be freaking out, dude! Like, we both know what a wonderful woman steffy is, and you don't want to lose her, right?
Liam: I didn'T.
Wyatt: Okay, so you're saying she did come back last night?
Liam: "And" what?
Wyatt: She forgave you.
Liam: Believe it or not...
[ Claps ] ...Yes, she did.
Wyatt: Wow. How much groveling did you do? Was it, like, pathetic?
Liam: Dude, bro, give me a little credit.
[ Chuckles ] I did a lot better than groveling.
Bill: You ran out so quickly last night. I just assumed that --
Steffy: What? What? That I was just gonna run home and rub it in liam's face?
Bill: No. No, I wouldn't put it in those terms, but he did betray you.
Steffy: It's nothing compared to what you and I did. Bill, I can't -- I can't hear all of these things about running off to planes and yachts. Like, look where the impulse to run got me so far.
Bill: Back to where we used to be and to where we are now. Finally being with you last night...changed everything. I can't go back. So yeah, I am very serious. We are leaving here today together.
Steffy: I can'T.
Bill: Why not?
Steffy: Because I'M... I'm more married now than I was yesterday.
Bill: What does that mean?
Steffy: Last night liam and i renewed our wedding vows.
Wyatt: Vow renewal?
Liam: Oh, yeah, dude. You know carter's ordained, right, so it's all by the book. Totally legit.
Wyatt: That's what the state of california says when you need to renew your driver's license. Like, they don't give a damn about your marriage vows. Like, that's -- that's -- that's for life.
Liam: You're such a romantic.
Wyatt: [ Sighs ] Okay, so carter showed up. You had no idea steffy was coming back.
Liam: None. I mean, you know, I-I hoped, but no.
Wyatt: Wow, you were desperate.
Liam: I was, in fact, desperate. Yeah, I'm not ashamed to admit it.
Wyatt: Hey, I get it. I get it. You were grasping at straws.
Liam: Well, more like I was grasping at symbolism. Like, it's a chance to start over if I could get steffy to forgive me. It's as if nothing we did before making those promises can hurt us again.
Bill: Renewed your vows? Last night?
Steffy: Yeah, carter was there. I don't know. It all happened so fast. And then we exchanged our rings. I don't know. I was freaking out.
Bill: Looks like the same ring to me.
Steffy: You know it is.
Bill: Then it's just a bunch of hocus pocus.
Steffy: Is that what marriage is to you, bill?
Bill: Given our history, i think you know me better than that. But I don't think it's just, uh, just words. You know, abracadabra, you say a thing and become that thing. When we first met, it was electric. We were mesmerized by each other. That was real. We were real. No words necessary. We loved each other. But circumstances... katie's health dictated that I-i suppress those feelings, I lock them away. So I did lock them away. And I wanted... no, I-i needed you to be with liam because that would mean you were off limits. That was a line I wouldn't cross, and I didn't cross it. Until last night. I respected you as liam's wife because I thought he would be a good and loyal husband, just as I thought he would be a good and loyal son. I love liam. But he's proven to be neither of those things. So, what? Some play acting and -- and -- and a little, uh, preacher fairy dust makes you forget all that?
Steffy: Exactly how good and loyal a wife was I?
Bill: Liam is the one who broke the marriage contract by making out with sally. I mean, he -- he can sell you on it was the circumstances, but if he wasn't into her like I said he was well before that, the kissing never would have happened. You can't recommit to a marriage held together by -- by duct tape and good intentions. Believe me, I know. I'm an expert. I did it twice with katie, and the first time it cost me you. Not katie and not even brooke could accept me, all of me, everything I am, the good, the bad, the ugly. No woman ever has. Except you.
Steffy: [ Sighs ]
[ Voice breaking ] I was trying to keep the family together. That was all.
Bill: Was that all? Really, steffy? Was that all? You were following your nature. Liam was out of control. You came to me. You were drawn to me, just like you always have been. Now, doesn't that tell you something? Your renewed marriage is a lie, and the only person you're being unfaithful to is you.
Steffy: Bill, I was going to tell him!
[ Sighs ]
Bill: I'm sure you were. But the game is set up for people like you and me to keep quiet, to toe the line.
Steffy: He just wants a fresh start. He wants to put this all behind us.
Bill: Your choice is clear. A life with a man that out of some temporary guilt and self-loathing you fake married last night where every word was a lie... or a life with me. I never made love to a woman the way I made love to you last night. I know how that felt, and it was mutual. Tell me you want what I want. I know that you do.
Steffy: I want to be married to your son. That's never changed.
Liam: I can't believe how close I came to actually losing steffy.
Wyatt: Yeah, well, you lost perspective.
Liam: I did. I did. I mean, fighting with dad -- listen, what dad did was wrong, but I went too far in defending sally.
Wyatt: Yeah, blackmailing our father wasn't exactly your smartest idea.
Liam: Yes, I see that now.
Wyatt: Well, a little self-exploration does wonders now, doesn't it?
Liam: [ Scoffs ]
Wyatt: Look, you've always been the one who rants and raves about how dad doesn't have any ethics, but that just isn't true, now is it?
Liam: No, you're right. You're right. I mean, yeah, the guy doesn't believe in absolutes, but he does believe in unbreakable loyalties, and I broke one when I turned on him.
Liam: It's funny, 'cause the irony is he would never do that to me.
Steffy: Can you not admit that we made a huge mistake last night?
Bill: Sure. Last night when you let shame drive you back to your fractured marriage.
Steffy: It's where I belong, bill!
[ Sighs ] Like, my god. My god, bill, I hate myself right now.
[ Sighs ]
Bill: Truth is truth. No matter what you call it. And the truth is that you and i are more alike than you and liam will ever be. We belong together. We have always belonged together, and deep down inside, you know that.
Steffy: What do you want from me?
Bill: All of you.
Steffy: Being with you, i would have to give up everything, bill.
Bill: Maybe being with me, you would gain everything. Look. Liam is a good person. I love that boy. But he is a boy, and life is going to kick him around without mercy.
Steffy: Stop, stop. I hate the way you talk about him. I'm the undeserving one, not liam.
Bill: How much of yourself are you willing to hide? I mean, I'm sure it started small. You would order a steak for lunch at work because if you came home and wanted one, he'd look at you sideways. You would keep quiet about not liking his business style. You would keep quiet when he wanted to save the latest species of frog headed for extinction. You'd keep quiet about the mutiny at spencer or having to be a hero to sally, making her the priority over you. And now there's something else you have to hide. Us. Year after year, you're going to bury so much of yourself, you're going to become a ghost in your own shoes. And you will be haunted by the bigger life and the truer life that you could have had with me.
Wyatt: You see how much saner you are when you listen to me?
Liam: Oh! Obviously the self-righteousness gene did not bypass you.
Wyatt: No. So what are you gonna do?
Liam: Uh, make sure my wife doesn't regret forgiving me, maybe?
Wyatt: About dad, I mean. You can't just ask carter to renew your vows as father and son. That's your job.
Liam: [ Sighs ] I don't know, man. How am I supposed to apologize for fighting for what I think is right?
Wyatt: Apologize for not fighting fair. It's -- it's not a battle of ideas. You stabbed dad in the back. He's not gonna ask you what point you were making.
Liam: But if it's not about values, what is it about for him?
Wyatt: You know, for a genuinely intelligent person, you are really slow sometimes. It's -- it's about the relationship. It's always about the relationship, dude. What's dad's favorite battle cry?
Both: "Family first."
Liam: I know. But, dude, honestly, do you even believe that? Like, his father was a tyrant who he hates. His sister won't even take his phone calls, and she sends him christmas cards he doesn't open. That's like...
Wyatt: They don't respect the relationship. Liam, that's all he's asking us to do. You can disagree with him 10 times a day. You can scream obscenities, if that helps. But you just -- you never disrespect the relationship.
Liam: You know who gets that?
Wyatt: Finally the light bulb goes on.
Liam: Shut up. I mean, I used to -- I used to actually accuse her of taking dad's side, but that's not even what was happening. She was -- she was fighting to preserve our relationship. I mean, steffy literally put herself in between dad and me.
Steffy: Liam and I will fix this. You don't know me as well as you think you do.
Bill: I know you better than you're comfortable with. What happened to that -- that fearlessness that I loved in you so much?
Steffy: Then don't love me!
Bill: That's impossible.
Steffy: I wanted to be alone, bill. I went to my grandfather's to be alone.
Bill: And if I hadn't shown up, you probably still would be.
Steffy: Maybe I would.
Bill: Wondering what happened to the you, you used to be. From -- from powerful, kick-ass woman to sobbing in the family guest house. I guess you should thank me. I put the scare in you that sent you running back to him, didn't I?
Steffy: I'm as guilty as you are!
Bill: So now it's all ugliness to you.
Steffy: No, no, it wasn't like that.
Bill: Then why is the thought of a life with me so terrifying?
Steffy: It's not that it's terrifying, bill. But your world. I mean, who loves you? Justin? Wyatt? Who?
Steffy: There's only one thing I want from you.
Bill: My silence.
Steffy: Liam can never know. I hate this. He was honest about kissing sally, and then I had to go and... oh, god. Oh, god, bill. I have no choice. There is only two people who know about last night. Let's keep it that way.
Bill: Burying your head in the sand -- that's your style?
Steffy: He'll despise me just as much as I despise myself! Now please, tell me you're not gonna say anything!
Bill: When something happens in life that changes you --
Steffy: Just promise me you're not gonna say anything! I'm not gonna lose my marriage over this. I'm gonna be a good and loyal wife to your son, and neither one of us are gonna breathe one word to liam or to anyone about this.
Bill: I never intended to complicate your life.
Steffy: I know.
Bill: What happens if you're complicating it more?
Steffy: I need my husband.
[ Voice breaking ] Promise me you're not gonna say anything. Please.
Steffy: [ Sighs ]
