Episode #7729 ~ Steffy becomes anxiety ridden as Liam keeps asking her for forgiveness; Sheila spots Thorne at Il Giardino and swoops in to takes advantage of the situation.
Provided By SuzanneThorne: You can't be serious. Ridge and quinn?
Thorne: Our father's wife?
Sheila: It's -- it's shocking, I know, but --
Sheila: When they were involved? The day that he was supposed to take vows with brooke.
Sheila: And it wasn't the first time. So, yes, thorne, you have good reason to be concerned about brooke.
Ridge: What, you're not hungry? You're just picking at your food.
Brooke: [ Exclaims ] You know, I was enjoying myself with thorne. Until you brought me back here for this supposed lunch meeting.
Ridge: Hey. It had to be done. And thorne is best in small doses. And now that you're living with him, you get plenty of doses.
Ridge: Are you done?
Ridge: I may have another surprise for you.
Brooke: Another surprise. Hmm. Yeah. Can't wait to see this one.
Quinn: So, ridge and thorne both love brooke. That must have caused a lot of problems. Brooke must be unforgettable.
Eric: That was their song, you know.
Quinn: What song?
Eric: Brooke and ridge'S. "Unforgettable." Pretty much describes their on-and-off-again relationship over the years.
Quinn: Oh. I can't wait for us to look back on our relationship over the years. But I don't want it to be on again and off again.
Eric: Just on.
[ Quinn giggles ]
Thorne: I can't believe my brother would betray my dad like this again. I can only imagine how hurt dad would be if he found out.
Sheila: Oh, your dad was devastated.
Thorne: Wait, dad knows?
Thorne: And he forgave ridge? Kept him on as C.E.O.?
Sheila: Well, he forgave quinn, too. Which is really shocking, considering...
Thorne: Considering what?
Sheila: She's not a good person, thorne. I stayed in L.A. To look after eric's best interests. God, I hope you believe that.
Thorne: I need answers.
Sheila: Thorne, remember... this didn't come from me.
Brooke: Wow! So this is your surprise, huh?
Ridge: It's been long enough, don't you think?
Brooke: Hm... depends on what you have in mind.
Ridge: See, if someone were to walk in... they would see me kissing my future wife. Not that scandalous, is it?
Quinn: I hope they still have that special beet salad.
Quinn: Oh, hey, thorne.
Thorne: Quinn. Uh, I need to speak with you. Alone, if that's okay.
Eric: I was just about to take my wife to lunch. Can it wait?
Thorne: Uh, no.
Quinn: Oh, okay. Well, uh... all right. I'll just go get lunch and, uh, let you two talk. Can I get you anything special?
Eric: Surprise me.
Quinn: Okay. Bye.
Eric: I thought you were having lunch with brooke.
Thorne: Ridge had other ideas.
Eric: I see. What happened?
Thorne: What always happens when ridge is involved -- to hell with anyone else's feelings. Including yours. I know what happened, dad. I know how he betrayed you again with quinn.
Sheila: Your to-go order should be ready shortly. So, are you and eric having a nice cozy lunch at the office?
Quinn: Buzz off, sheila. I have nothing to say to you.
Sheila: Ooh, gracious as always.
Quinn: You know, I don't need to be gracious to you because you're just a crazy troublemaker.
Sheila: No, actually, I'm a working stiff trying to earn a living here.
Quinn: [ Sighs ] Oh, please.
Sheila: Oh, that's something you wouldn't know, though, would you, being mrs. Eric forrester. No financial worries there.
Quinn: [ Scoffs ] Are you seriously trying to imply that I married eric for his money? I -- I'm engaging with her. Why am I engaging with her?
Sheila: You know, how -- how is ridge doing? You guys still work closely, don't you? Well [Chuckles] Of course you do. That's one of the perks of going to work every day, isn't it?
Quinn: You know what the perk of my job is? That, at the end of a long day, I get to go home to my husband, who I love so much.
Sheila: And ridge?
Quinn: [ Sighs ] Ridge and brooke should be enjoying a lovely future together very shortly.
Sheila: And you're just great with that, right?
Quinn: You know... I hope ridge and brooke are as happy as I am. With eric.
Ridge: [ Sighs ] Now, isn't that better than having lunch with my little brother?
Brooke: Oh, ridge, you know thorne hates you calling him that.
Ridge: Ah, it's an old habit. It dies hard.
Brooke: Well, just try, okay? For me. I hate to see the two of you at odds.
Ridge: You know what I hate? I hate seeing him take advantage of your hospitality.
Brooke: He's not.
Ridge: He is. He moved in with you.
Brooke: I told him to till he found a place.
Ridge: Oh, the man's gonna take his sweet time, I tell you.
Brooke: [ Scoffs ]
Ridge: In the meantime, he's going to keep asking you what happened in australia, why we didn't get married.
Brooke: I didn't tell him about you and quinn, if that's what you're wondering.
Ridge: There's nothing to tell. It's in the past. You know that, right?
Brooke: Yeah. Yeah, for the most part. I know that you're sorry, and I know that you regret what you did. Now it's just nice to be able to spend time with you. It's been really good for me and R.J.
Ridge: It's been really good for me.
Brooke: And I want to thank you for letting me have the space to go through what I've been going through, and just being there for me. And thank you for reminding me what we have together.
Ridge: And I'm gonna keep reminding you. We'll get there. I promise we will.
Thorne: I'm right. I can see it in your face. Ridge went after your wife.
Eric: I don't want to talk about this, thorne.
Thorne: Because it upsets you, what my brother did to you.
Eric: Quinn and I have reconciled, all right? No reason to dredge all this up again.
Thorne: Oh, come on, dad. I know you. I know you have this big, forgiving heart. But that ridge could do this to you again... what the hell is wrong with him?
Eric: This is exactly why I didn't want you to know. It's gonna put the two of you head-to-head against each other again.
Thorne: Ridge has done some pretty horrible things, but this? Come on. We have to stand up to him, dad. He can't keep ruining people's lives.
Eric: Nobody's lives have been ruined, all right? Granted, quinn and i went through a rough patch after this. But I forgave her.
Thorne: And ridge too?
Eric: No, I did not forgive ridge. When I found out what he had done, I -- I told him he was no longer my son, and that he was no longer part of this family or this company.
Thorne: Then why is he still? Why is he still acting like top dog at forrester? And in this family?
Eric: Thorne, I'm top dog in this family, in this company, and I will be till the day I die. Life is short. You don't want to hang on to all this animosity. Hanging on to all these bad feelings is just...
Thorne: I know. I understand that. You've told me that before, dad. But what ridge did... he takes and takes, and always gets away with it. No more, dad. I'm back now, and I'm gonna put a stop to it once and for all.
Sheila: I had them put in a slice of tiramisu, because i know that's eric's favorite.
Quinn: Did she handle any of this? Thank you.
Sheila: I was just --
Quinn: Oh, save it, sheila. You're nothing but a conniving, manipulative witch who can't seen to wean herself from her obsession with my husband and everything forrester. But let me tell you something. After what you pulled with mateo, eric's never gonna trust you again. If he ever did in the first place. I know I won'T. So you need to stay away from him, and from the rest of my family, because your days of wreaking havoc for the forresters are over.
Sheila: I still get to her.
Ridge: Are you getting sleepy?
Brooke: Mm... 'cause you know there's probably a couple things I could do to get you going.
Ridge: Okay. Too much? Mm. You want to save it for the honeymoon.
[ Brooke scoffs ] Okay. I'm with you. That's fine.
Brooke: [ Laughs ] Oh, ridge.
Ridge: Hey. Listen to me. I'm gonna give you space. I promised that. But I'm gonna keep reminding you, because what we have, that only happens once in a lifetime. It's very special. We're gonna make it work this time. Nothing and no one's gonna get in our way.
Eric: Thorne, I don't want you to do this. I don't want you flying off the handle, going after your brother. I don't want this.
Thorne: Really, dad? After what he put you through, you expect me to not say anything?
Eric: It's in the past, thorne. It's all been resolved. I forgave quinn.
Thorne: I understand that. She's one of countless women who's fallen victim to ridge forrester. But to forgive him? Make him C.E.O.?
Thorne: That doesn't matter. You know his history. What he's done to you in the past. It wasn't enough that he stole brooke from you? He had to have your current wife, as well? Hell, I didn't even think he liked quinn. Isn't that why he summoned me back here before? To help stop the wedding?
Eric: He was wrong to do that. He was wrong about quinn, too.
Thorne: Obviously, or he wouldn't have hit on her.
Eric: It's more complicated than that.
Thorne: You're damn right it is. And it started with mother's lie. Because she wasn't honest, I've spent my entire life in the shadow of selfish, power-hungry marone! Which is who ridge is -- massimo marone's biological son. Not yours, dad. I carry your dna, not ridge. Maybe that's why it's so easy for him to do the things he's done to you. Maybe deep down, he knows he's not worthy of being your son. Not after all his betrayals. Including his betrayal of brooke.
[ Scoffs ] I mean, she's the most extraordinary woman who deserves only the best. Of course, my egotistical brother thinks that's him, but it isn'T. Especially now that I know about him and quinn. Actions have consequences. My brother's gonna learn that the hard way -- from me.
Ridge: You're eating alone?
Quinn: Well, your father was supposed to join me, but he got called away. Where have you been?
Ridge: Steam room.
Quinn: With brooke?
Ridge: Yeah, with brooke. Who else?
Quinn: Mm. Oh, no! Did you pop the question?
Ridge: In the steam room?
Quinn: It's been a favorite place of yours over the years for you and brooke. I mean, what better place? Oh! By the way, I ran into sheila, the jailbird-turned-waitress, at il giardino, and I'm telling you, she is looking for dirt. She's looking for something so that she -- what's wrong?
Ridge: Is thorne in the building?
Quinn: He was with your father earlier?
Ridge: What'd he want?
Quinn: Uh, I don't know. He -- he seemed really intense, though.
Ridge: Yeah, he's very intense these days, isn't he?
Quinn: Yeah. He also seems different -- you know, stronger and more assertive.
Ridge: Mm, and up to something.
Ridge: I don't know, but I'm gonna find out.
Brooke: I'm sorry about what happened earlier at the restaurant, ridge practically pulling me away.
Thorne: Yeah, I'm sorry, too. That a brother of mine can treat people that way and keep getting away with it.
Brooke: Well, that's just who ridge is.
Thorne: Rude. Arrogant. Thinks the world revolves around him.
Brooke: [ Sighs ]
Thorne: Yeah, that's ridge. Can you tell now why I'm so worried about you?
Brooke: Don't be. I can take care of myself.
Thorne: I'm sure my dad felt the same way.
Brooke: What do you mean?
Thorne: I understand now why you didn't want me to know about australia. That the other woman was quinn. Our father's wife.
Brooke: Who told you that?
Thorne: Oh, it doesn't matter. I already spoke to dad about it. I know it's true.
Brooke: [ Sighs ]
Thorne: This can't go on, brooke.
Brooke: What can't?
Thorne: Ridge! Continuing to get away with things like this. Lies, betrayal. I mean, he cheated on you. Which is horrible enough. But to do it with dad's wife... you must have been horrified.
Brooke: Yes. Yes, I was horrified. And in some ways, I still am. But...
Thorne: No. No, no. No more "buts." No more excuses for my brother. This is all on him. Look, all you did was love him and wanted to be his wife. Which should have been enough for any man. But not ridge, no. He had to go prove that he could conquer any woman he wants, including our father's wife. You shouldn't have to put up with this. Ridge is a perpetual cheater who has broken your heart countless times. I am not gonna let him do that to you again. I'm not. Because you deserve so much better. A man who will be there for you completely. And I'm sure ridge has promised a wonderful future, right? He said he was gonna be there completely. But it's never gonna happen. You know why? Because he's incapable of that. And I understand that this is hard for you to hear, but... you can't do it, brooke. You cannot marry my brother.Thorne: Stop patronizing me, ridge. I'm done with it.
Ridge: Take it easy. Let's respect my office. Can we do that?
Thorne: Oh, right, of course. Yes, your office. Let me -- let me apologize and bow down to the almighty ridge forrester.
Ridge: What is this? Why do you have this big chip on your shoulder? Why?
Thorne: Because I just got into town! You're already on my case, trying to undermine me, get under my skin, which is working, by the way. But it's done. I'm not putting up with this anymore.
Ridge: Are you gonna cry right now?
Thorne: I am so sick of your condescending attitude, your total lack of respect.
Ridge: Stop overreacting, little brother.
Thorne: All right, I've told you before. Don't ever call me that again.
Brooke: I think it's wonderful that thorne wants to branch out and try his hand in design.
Eric: Well, apparently he's been fully engrossed while he's been in europe, working with other designers. I had no idea.
Quinn: Well, good for him. If he has half your talent, he's gonna do an incredible job.
Brooke: I think his designs are pretty impressive already. Wouldn't you agree, eric?
Eric: I like what I've seen so far. I'm curious to see where he goes with it.
Brooke: As long as ridge doesn't get in the way.
Quinn: Oh, yeah, ridge doesn't seem too thrilled.
Eric: My boys have been very competitive with each other all their lives. But ridge usually ends up getting the upper hand.
Brooke: Yeah, but not in this case.
Eric: Maybe he'll stand up to his brother this time.
[ Seagulls calling ]
Liam: Hey, steffy, what do you want on your salad? Want some tomatoes? Hey. Steffy. You okay? What's wrong?
Thorne: Get it through your head, ridge. I'm not taking your crap anymore.
Ridge: Then maybe you should go back to paris.
Thorne: Oh, I'm not going anywhere. I'm not gonna let you push me out.
Ridge: What do you want? What is it?
Thorne: This is our company, our family business.
Ridge: [ Sighs ]
Thorne: It's not yours. You don't get to tell me what to do.
Ridge: Like it or not, I'm the one that runs this company, little brother.
Thorne: Oh, you son of a bitch. I warned you, do not call me "little brother" anymore!
Brooke: What's going on in here?
Ridge: Nothing. It's okay. Ask him.
Thorne: We're fine.
Eric: I don't want the two of you fighting in here.
Brooke: You really need to calm down, both of you. Thorne, let's just go outside and get some fresh air.
Eric: Take him to il giardino. Just take him to lunch.
Brooke: That's a good idea. Come on.
Thorne: You're a bully, ridge. You're used to controlling everyone around you. Well, that's gonna stop. And not just for my sake, but for everyone else'S. You're done mistreating people, especially brooke.
Steffy: Oh, I'm -- I'm fine. I -- I'm sorry. I was just thinking about something else. It doesn't matter now.
Liam: You sure?
Steffy: Yeah, I'm sure.
Steffy: I'm just happy to be home, having a homemade meal with my husband. It's everything I ever wanted.
Liam: Yes, including tomatoes, which you're getting whether you like it or not.
Steffy: [ Chuckles ] Fine with me.
Liam: This is kind of nice, right? Lunch at home together.
Steffy: Yeah, you know, sometimes I do have good ideas.
Liam: You always have good ideas. Exhibit a -- the fact that my father and I are even speaking to each other. Do you know he offered to help sally get back -- get -- that was really insensitive. I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. I didn't mean to bring up sally.
Steffy: No, no, no, no. It's fine. It's fine.
Liam: No, it's not fine, actually. You've been nothing but understanding, and I --
[ Sighs ] I will never forgive myself for breaking our vows.
Eric: Stop giving thorne a hard time.
Quinn: [ Sighs ]
Ridge: He's so much fun to mess with.
Eric: You're too old to be at each other's throats all the time.
Ridge: All right, maybe it's childish, but he's -- he's so sensitive. I can't not push him.
Eric: Ridge, I'm asking you -- no, I'm telling you. Be civil to your brother. Now, I'm glad thorne is back. And I want everyone else to be supportive of him, too, especially you.
Ridge: I'm doing my best.
Eric: No, you're not. Do better.
Ridge: Lower your expectations.
Ridge: It's something -- something strange here.
Eric: Strange? What?
Ridge: Well, the guy comes into town, and now all of a sudden he's a designer? What is that?
Ridge: He's up to something.
Eric: Like what?
Ridge: I don't know.
Quinn: Are you upset because he's staying at brooke's?
Ridge: Am I upset? No, I'm a little curious that a grown man would come to los angeles and not get a hotel room for himself. But I also know that a little thorne goes a long way, so I'm gonna find brooke and relieve her of her babysitting duties. Goodbye.
Quinn: [ Sighs ]
[ Door opens ]
[ Indistinct conversations ]
Thorne: I don't know how you can stand him.
Brooke: Don't let ridge get to you.
Thorne: I try not, but he has a way of rattling my cage, acting all superior with his condescending tone. I've had to put up with it my entire life, and I'm just over it.
Brooke: Your brother loves you. He just doesn't have the best way of showing it.
Thorne: Don't defend him, brooke, not after what he did to you. In australia? Day before your wedding? You were right to break it off with him. And bill. Try being alone for a while, see how it feels. You're an amazing woman. You don't need a man to define you.
Brooke: You're very sweet to say that. And it's nice to be reminded once in awhile.
Thorne: Well, it's true. I've known it from the day I met you how special you were. Any man who doesn't understand that is a fool.
[ Seagulls calling ]
Liam: I just want you to know how sorry I am.
Steffy: I do. More than you realize.
Liam: [ Sighs ] It's weird. I mean, like, I want us to be able to completely put this behind us, but I also know that I have no right to expect that.
Steffy: Oh, believe me, i want to put this behind us as much as you do.
Liam: Well, I-I mean, I made you angry. I made you furious. And you had every right to be. But when you came home and forgave me, I couldn't believe how lucky I was. I mean, it was like you were a different person, honestly. Actually, I never asked you this, but...where did you go that night? Like, what did you -- what did you do?
Liam: I mean, you never actually told me what you did that night. What made you come back home?
Steffy: I, uh, I just wanted to come home and -- and -- and be with you. I shouldn't have left you. I should've stayed here.
Liam: Hey, I'm sure if I were in your shoes, I would have done the same exact thing.
Steffy: I don't think you would have.
Liam: Did you -- did you talk to someone, someone who made you feel better? Well, look, for all I know you were alone and you worked it out by yourself and I'm just not giving you enough credit, but... I'm kind of -- I'm trying to fill in the blanks here, and -- hey, hey. I'm sorry if I'm being annoying. I just... I just want to know where you went that night.
[ Birds chirping ]
Eric: I hate infighting, especially when it's my kids.
Quinn: Yeah, well, siblings don't always get along. That's why they call it sibling rivalry.
Eric: [ Scoffs ] I hope that's all this was. If we hadn't come in when we did, this could have gotten physical.
Quinn: No, I don't think they would have let it get that far.
Eric: Wouldn't be the first time.
Quinn: [ Sighs ] These issues that you're talking about, I'm assuming most of them have to do with brooke.
Eric: Yes, yes, they do. Well, you know. Thorne and brooke have been close for a long time. They were married at one point, and now... well, here's brooke right in the middle of it again.
Thorne: You know, you've been there for me every step of the way, no matter what we've gone through, and we've gone through a lot together.
Brooke: You think?
Thorne: You know, I count you as someone I can always turn to.
Brooke: You've always been a very dear friend to me, too, thorne. And I'm just so glad to have you back, see that handsome smile on your face.
Thorne: Well, thanks for giving me a reason to put it there.
Brooke: You know, you're really humble. You're quite an amazing person.
Thorne: Oh, stop it.
Brooke: No, honestly. I think you're the sweetest, kindest person I ever met.
Thorne: Maybe it's my kindness that's gotten me where I am today.
Brooke: Where is that?
Thorne: I don't know. I'm single, lost my daughter. I needed time away to think about my life, my time with macy, darla. You know, being a father is really one of the greatest experiences I could ever have. And our time together. You'll always be a huge part of my life.
Brooke: Mine, too.
Thorne: Remember venice, our wedding? I haven't forgotten.
Brooke: [Aughs ] I haven't forgotten, either.
Ridge: Logan! There you are. Hey.
Brooke: Ridge, what are you doing here?
Ridge: Trying to call you. It keeps going to voicemail. We have a meeting.
Brooke: I'm having lunch with your brother.
Ridge: Well, it's gonna have to wait. It's a lunch meeting at the office. I almost forgot about it.
Thorne: Oh, come on, ridge. You heard logan. We're having, uh, lunch.
Ridge: And you're probably talking her ear off. Come on. We got to go. We're late.
Brooke: Uh, okay. I'm sorry.
Thorne: No, it's fine.
Sheila: Thorne. Hello.
Sheila: I know. I'm -- I'm out of jail. I've been living in L.A. For a while now.
Thorne: Yeah, I-I heard that.
Sheila: I couldn't help but notice you and brooke, the connection that you guys have. It's -- it's a shame that ridge came and took her away. Yeah, but that is what ridge does, right? Takes whatever woman he wants from his friends, his brother, even his dad.
[ Car horn honks ]
[ Birds chirping ]
Brooke: This is the lunch meeting? Where is everybody else? This is just lunch.
Ridge: It's not just lunch. We've met, and this is a conference table, so this is... this is our meeting. And it's better than sitting and having lunch with thorne anyway, right?
Brooke: [ Sighs ] That's really sweet of you. But you were really rude to thorne.
Ridge: It's okay. He'll get over it. And besides, we got to stay away from that restaurant. Sheila works there, and you don't want to run into her. That never ends well.
Sheila: Do you mind if I join you for a moment? I'm on my break right now.
Thorne: What did you mean earlier about my brother?
Sheila: Well, I may as well tell you because you're gonna hear about it eventually anyway.
Thorne: Hear what?
Sheila: I-I hired your dad's estate manager, mateo, to try and seduce quinn. Yeah, I thought she would betray your father, and I was wrong. It blew up in my face, and quinn did not cheat on eric.
Thorne: Hmm. Of course she wouldn't cheat on my dad. I mean, they're practically newlyweds. Why -- why would you think she would do that?
Sheila: I have my reasons. You know, thorne, it's almost like you're new to L.A. Again. You've been gone for so long. There's a lot that's happened that you don't know about.
Thorne: Well, I should probably get going.
Sheila: Thorne, wait. Do you ever wonder why brooke and ridge didn't get married, why she didn't go through with the wedding?
Thorne: You know?
Sheila: Well, I suppose if i tell you, you -- you can't let anyone know it came from me.
Thorne: You know who ridge was with before the wedding?
Thorne: Well, tell me. I'm worried about brooke being hurt again.
Sheila: Well, you should be.
Sheila: The reason I hired mateo to go after quinn.
Thorne: This isn't about quinn.
Sheila: Oh, yes, it is. Quinn has cheated on your father.
Sheila: Yes. She had an affair with ridge.
Steffy: You want to know where I went that night?
Liam: Uh, yeah. I mean, you don't -- you don't have to tell me if you don't want to. I just figured it'll help us put the pieces together.
Steffy: And then we can erase everything.
Steffy: [ Sighs ] Yeah. I want to -- I want to do that. I just want to forget.
Liam: So I take it you were alone.
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah. I, uh... I went for a drive. I, um... I parked my car, and I just thought about how wonderful you are and... how lucky I am to have you as my husband.
Liam: [ Chuckles ] Okay, steffy, I... I had just betrayed you. I mean, you -- you, my wife, who's been nothing but loyal and faithful to me.
Steffy: You don't have to say that. Please stop.
Liam: Well, I'm just curious because you --
Steffy: Just stop! Stop!
[ Exhales deeply ] No.
Liam: Whoa. Hey.
Steffy: [ Sighs ]
Liam: Hey, steffy. I know I hurt you. I know that. But if I had it to do again...
Steffy: I just want to -- i want to erase that night. I just want to erase that night.
Liam: It'll never happen again. Never. I promise you. You hear me? I will never let you down again. You have my word. I'm gonna finish lunch.
Steffy: I'm a liar. I'm a cheater. How could you? Guilty! Liar!
[ Echoing ] So guilty! You're just a phony. You're a liar. Guilty! Guilty! I'm a liar.
