Provided By Suzanne
Steffy: This baby is liam'S.
Bill: And if it isn't?
Steffy: It is!
Bill: We need to find out one way or another.
[ Door opens ]
Liam: If that's me you're about to call, I got the proposal for holiday bonuses to go over with you.
Bill: It's like you read my mind.
[ Cellphone chimes ]
Dr. Campbell: Steffy. So sorry for the wait.
Steffy: No, I'm the one who should apologize for demanding to see you without an appointment. I just can't live with this uncertainty.
Dr. Campbell: So, a paternity test?
Steffy: Yeah, there was another man. It was just once, but, you know, the, uh, the timing...
Dr. Campbell: I don't really need to know more information than that. As long as the encounter was consensual?
Steffy: Yes. So do you think that, you know, since it was just once, maybe...
Dr. Campbell: It only takes just once. I know that's not what you want to hear.
Steffy: No, I-I understand. This just has to be my husband's baby.
[ Door opens ]
Wyatt: You peeping tom!
Katie: I-I-I am not a peeping tom. I am -- I'm a peeping katie. Hey, hey, someone has to make sure that the neighborhood has their christmas decorations up and that they are tasteful.
Wyatt: Yeah, I'm not sure that's what they meant by neighborhood watch.
Katie: [ Chuckles ]
Wyatt: Are you, uh, are you sure you're okay with me using this key that you gave me to just come on in?
Katie: Yeah, it's why I gave it to you. And I did call you and ask you to come over, didn't I?
Wyatt: Right. So you're not worried that i might walk in on you with one of your other guys?
Katie: Oh, don't worry. I got rid of him hours ago.
Wyatt: Oh, good. That's good.
Katie: And if you did, you'd have to come to blows over me, right?
Wyatt: Eh. I'm a lover, not a fighter. Make love, not war.
Katie: Good to know. Because I'm about to tell you something that you might not be too happy about.
Wyatt: Okay. Is this robe supposed to soften the blow? 'Cause I see your strategy.
Katie: Is it working?
Wyatt: I don't know.
Katie: I-I kind of told my sister about us.
Katie: Yeah. Yeah, that sister.
Wyatt: The woman who's still married to my father.
Wyatt: I -- do you know --
Katie: [ Laughs ]
Wyatt: This is how I'm going to die.
Katie: Don't be so dramatic.
Wyatt: I'm practicing being dead. When my father finds out that I've been sleeping with his ex-wife...
Katie: [ Laughs ] No one's gonna find out anything. Brooke's not gonna say anything to him.
Wyatt: Oh, my god. She's gonna tell someone who's gonna tell someone else.
Wyatt: Who's gonna tell someone else.
Katie: Stop. No one's gonna tell anyone anything. Trust me.
Wyatt: I want you to have my trailer.
Katie: What am I gonna do with that thing?
Wyatt: And my amazing outdoor grill.
Katie: Is this your last will and testament? Because I will take your outdoor grill. It is amazing.
Wyatt: Clearly you're not seeing the gravity of the situation here. I could die, all right? There's a lot of people that know about us.
Katie: Three people know about us!
Wyatt: That's a lot for L.A.
Katie: Listen, when or if bill finds out about us, I have a feeling it's just gonna go in one ear and out the other, because wherever his attention is these days, it's not on you and me.
Liam: Roberta's been with us in advertising since 2001. She brought in $48 million in ads this year just in our L.A. Market alone. I'm proposing, uh, 20,000 for her.
Bill: 20,000 what?
Liam: Dollars, dad. Dollars. It's less than a half of a percent of everything she brought in for us.
[ Scoffs ]
Bill: You look different.
Liam: Do I?
Bill: You seem different.
Liam: From what?
Bill: Well, from last time i saw you, uh, you were -- you were, uh, running off to -- to a doctor's appointment with steffy.
Liam: Ah, yes. Yeah, I was.
Bill: And how was everything?
Liam: You know steffy. She's indestructible.
Bill: A clean bill of health?
Liam: Uh, yeah. Yeah. You could...you could say that.
Dr. Campbell: There's a new non-invasive screening. It's highly accurate. It looks for the fetal cells in your bloodstream. All we have to do is draw the blood and compare the findings with the dna profiles of the prospective fathers.
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, let's do it.
Dr. Campbell: All right.
Katie: Seriously, what took you so long? You should have been here an hour ago. Tick, tick, tick.
Wyatt: I said I'd get here as soon as I could. Are you gonna be demanding now?
Katie: Oh, I've never really been demanding before. Maybe I should try it on for size.
Wyatt: I just really like what you try on.
Katie: Seriously, what gives? Were you dawdling?
Wyatt: Okay, who says dawdling anymore? Yeah, I know.
Katie: [ Laughs ]
Wyatt: Liam was just, you know, yakking away, that's all.
Katie: Yeah, what brought on the sudden yak attack?
Wyatt: He was -- he was happy.
Katie: About what?
Katie: He's playing nicely with others?
Wyatt: Yeah, he hasn't blackmailed anyone, as far as i know, lately. Uh, and he hasn't written a big, fat company check to the tofu tree society.
Katie: You're so silly. You know tofu doesn't grow on trees.
Wyatt: Yeah, I-I knew that. I was just checking to see if you did.
Katie: Well, um, on another note, I have a christmas present for you.
Katie: Have you been very, very good?
Wyatt: Hmm. Really?
Wyatt: Come on. When I was in school, they always said that I wasn't living up to my potential.
Katie: Well, you've certainly helped me live up to mine.
Katie: Ho, ho, ho.
Wyatt: [ Sighs ] I love christmas.
Katie: It's the happiest time of the year.
Wyatt: Yes, it is.
Liam: Okay, so what -- what are we doing about justin? You handle that, right?
Bill: Right. I'll just give him a check.
Liam: All right, then that leaves, uh, wyatt and jarrett.
Bill: And you.
Liam: No, I'm taken care of.
Bill: How about a boat? Let's give you a boat.
Bill: No, no, no. A starter yacht. I think you could use it.
Liam: Okay, how about this? How about I tell you what i want?
Bill: Okay, lay it on me.
Liam: Okay. Happiness is a good thing, right?
Bill: Happiness. Sure. Why not? Although santa doesn't carry that in his sack.
Liam: Agreed. This is true. And the fact is, most people don't really walk around thinking about exactly how happy or unhappy they are. You know, they're paying their bills and arguing about politics and fretting over getting fat, but the one thing better than happiness is knowledge -- knowing that you're happy. So here's the thing. If you see that slip away from me, if you ever see me angry or depressed or shut down, then you remind me that I am, in fact, happy and that you and steffy are the reason. And that -- that is my christmas bonus.
Dr. Campbell: I need you to understand that we might be doing this a little bit early. If there's no fetal cells in your blood, then we obviously can't run the test.
Steffy: Okay, so, like, we wait like a week or two and then we try again?
Dr. Campbell: Basically.
Steffy: I at least want to try. I'm losing my mind as it is.
Dr. Campbell: And that's not healthy for you or the baby, so let's give it a shot.
Steffy: I have liam's toothbrush. It's from his travel kit.
Dr. Campbell: You're confident no one else has used it?
Steffy: No, I only touched the holder. And I have this.
Dr. Campbell: The hairs of the second man.
Steffy: Yeah, pulled and bagged himself.
Dr. Campbell: Well, good job of protecting the samples from contamination. I'll, uh, confirm with our lab that these samples are viable and get the process going. Are you okay?
Steffy: Hmm? Uh, yeah, I will be. I hope so.
Katie: Do you ever wish that...
Wyatt: Guess what I'm wishing for right now.
Katie: What if I said something crazy to you?
Wyatt: You're under the impression that you don't do that now?
[ Chuckles ]
Katie: No, I mean something crazier, like maybe we should take in a movie or catch a laker game.
Wyatt: Oh. That kind of crazy.
Katie: I mean, I've never really had a relationship that takes place behind closed doors, so I'm still trying to figure out what the rules are.
Wyatt: Well, I'm sure they're listed online somewhere.
Katie: Hmm. That's funny.
Wyatt: Yeah. No, I think that our number-one rule should be that we please ourselves. I mean, you are sexy, wild, you're a lot of fun.
Katie: And festive.
Wyatt: And very festive, and I appreciate that. And I-I love spending time with you. But I don't think there's another person on this planet that thinks that you and I are a good idea. And frankly, I don't want to hear from them.
Katie: Yeah, I don't want to hear from them, either.
Wyatt: So, I say that we keep doing this until we find something else we want to do. I don't know. I mean, just some people are so worried about the future that they -- they forget to have a present.
Katie: You know what I like about you?
Katie: You're so sensible.
Wyatt: I used to think the same thing about you until i found this wild side that I am just so in love with.
Katie: Oh, well, you have no idea.
Wyatt: Okay. Yeah.
Katie: Oh, man. I have always wanted to do that.
Wyatt: You are so excited about it.
Katie: [ Laughs ] But don't worry. I haven't left my practicality behind. You have a brand new shirt, you know, right there in the closet.
Wyatt: Oh, would you look at that? Fortunately for my virtue, my, uh, [Clears throat] My -- my pants are still on.
Katie: Oh. Well, I have a fix for that, as well.
Katie: [ Laughs ]
Liam: What about wyatt? Why can't you give him a little beginner yacht?
Bill: Just leave wyatt to me. In fact, listen, I'm gonna give both you boys something epic. You'll see.
Liam: Oh, that's sweet, but too late. Steffy already gave me a christmas surprise that even you can't top.
Bill: Well, what might that be?
Liam: Actually, speaking of which, do you mind if I give my wife a little call?
Bill: Well, she's -- she's probably, uh, at work, right? I mean, she's not home.
Liam: Yeah, she was, but she left. I already checked.
[ Cellphone rings ]
Steffy: Hey, you.
Liam: Uh, just wondering how you're doing.
Steffy: Did I have morning sickness? No, I'm -- I'm fine.
Liam: Did you, um, take care of that thing?
Steffy: Oh, do you mean did i take my vitamins? Yeah. Yeah, I did. I...I gather you're not alone.
Liam: Uh, my dad says hi. Where are you anyway?
Steffy: Oh, did you mean that prenatal yoga class? Yeah, I'm checking it out. It -- it looks really good.
Liam: Are you there now?
Bill: Okay! Time is money! Tell her you're at work and your dad's a tyrant!
Liam: Uh, time is money. I'm at work. My dad's a tyrant. Love you.
Steffy: I love you, too.
Bill: I got to teach you how to cut off a phone call. Everything quiet on the domestic front?
Liam: Couldn't be better.
Dr. Campbell: Our lab took a preliminary look and says that these samples are more than adequate.
Steffy: Okay, so now it's my turn.
Dr. Campbell: If you're ready to have your blood drawn.
Steffy: Does it matter where you take it from?
Dr. Campbell: Your arm's fine. The baby's cells are either in your blood or they aren'T.
Steffy: It's just the -- the less noticeable, the better.
Dr. Campbell: I'll be careful. I'll avoid bruising.
Wyatt: So, uh, no sexy boxers or anything to slip on for you, but, um, I did get you something, too.
Katie: Wow. They're, um... they're beautiful.
Wyatt: But you hate them?
Katie: No. No, I don'T. It's just that, um, in my experience, men generally give women jewelry when they feel guilty about something.
Wyatt: Ah, like a payoff.
Katie: Yeah, like a bribe. "Don't look over here where i really screwed up. Look at this, like, beautiful, shiny thing."
Wyatt: Right. I don't feel guilt. I just... I know I'm going to see you at eric's for christmas, and it's not gonna be the same.
Katie: No, it won'T.
Wyatt: So, I wanted to give you something from me that you could wear, something secret that could touch you when i can'T.
Katie: Thank you.
Bill: [ Sighs ]
Liam: You know what? I decided you're entitled to a bonus, too.
[ Door closes ]
Bill: You're not allowed to buy me gifts.
Liam: I'm not? Why not? After everything you've done for me. A car, the nice clothes, the house, the career, the paternity leave, right?
Bill: The what?
Liam: The paternity leave. I mean, I was so excited to retool the maternity leave into extended parental leave, and i could have sworn you were gonna roll it back. But you didn't roll it back.
Bill: I can't accept this.
Liam: Oh, come on. It was literally less than $10.
Bill: I'm not the world's best dad.
Liam: Can I tell you something? My whole life, before I met you, and especially during christmastime, I would hear people say that family comes first. Nothing's more important than family. And because I didn't have one, to me, that just sounded like "blah blah blah blah." But when you say it, you really mean it. For the first time in my life, i mean it, too. Dad. I love you. And when -- if -- if I am ever fortunate enough to be a father, I can only hope that I am as good and generous and forgiving as you've been to me. Come on.
[ Laughs ]
Steffy: Is it done?
Dr. Campbell: Sorry. I didn't know you were still here.
Steffy: Oh, your medical assistant came in and wanted to know why I was waiting, but i didn't -- I didn't want to say. Please tell me liam's the father.
Dr. Campbell: Steffy, we already went over this.
Steffy: I'm sorry. I'm just...I'm a little scattered, that's all. Um...
Dr. Campbell: I had our lab verify that your samples were acceptable, but the particular test we have to do has to be done at a facility that can control the risk of cross-contamination.
Steffy: Right, right, right. I-I remember.
Dr. Campbell: So we need to send it out, and it'll be a few days till we get the results.
Steffy: I just don't know how much more of this I can take.
Dr. Campbell: Hey, whatever it is you do to relax, just go home and start doing it, okay? Panic is not gonna help with your test results. Just, I want you to keep reminding yourself of what a miracle this child is.
Steffy: You're right. Yeah, I know you're right. Thank you, doctor.
Steffy: I'm pregnant?
Liam: Oh, my god. We're pregnant. I never thought this would happen.
Steffy: I know, I know! Oh! Liam would never forgive me! This cannot be your child!
Bill: I need to know. We both do.
Steffy: I do. This baby is liam'S.
Liam: That is our child in there. We did that. That's ours. Our baby. . .
