Ridge: Honey, whatever happened between the two of you, tell me. I want to help.
Steffy: I know. But this, um... what I did, it's something that I regret. I never wanted liam to find out.
Ridge: But he did find out, didn't he? Hey. It doesn't matter if you're embarrassed. You can tell me anything. Doesn't matter what you do or say. I'm never gonna love you less.
Steffy: [ Voice breaking ] I know. But you might never be able to look at me the same.
Brooke: Somebody looks distracted. So, who is she? And how long have you been seeing her?
Bill: What can I do for you, brooke?
Brooke: You've already done it. The annulment papers.
Bill: Hmm. You're here to thank me for signing them for you.
Brooke: I am grateful.
Bill: And surprised I didn't put up more of a fight to keep you in my life.
Brooke: I guess that could only mean one thing. You've already replaced me.
Brooke: No. There's a woman you're infatuated with. Or should I say love?

Steffy: Liam, no. No, no. Please don't do this.
Liam: It has to be this way.
Steffy: No, no!
Liam: It's our annulment papers.

Bill: So the annulment had to be forrester's idea, right? He was pushing for it?
Brooke: It's what we both wanted, to move on.
Bill: You couldn't exorcise me from your life fast enough. Engagement ring.
Brooke: I didn't want to wear it till I was sure.
Bill: [ Chuckles ] "Sure" is a slippery slope when it comes to forrester and commitments.
Brooke: I will always care about you, bill.
Bill: And I'll always care about you, brooke. But you've moved on.
Brooke: And if my hunch is correct, so have you. So, who is she, this new woman in your life?
Steffy: Um... there's something I should tell you first. It's good news.
Steffy: You know how much I've been wanting a child.
Steffy: I'm pregnant.
Ridge: [ Laughs ] Oh, that is incredible! Oh, that's wonderful news!
[ Knock on door ]
Liam: Hey. Hi. Been a long time.
Liam: Um, uh, come in.
Liam: Europe agrees with you. You look good.
Hope: Thanks. So do you.
Liam: Nice try. It's, uh, it's not the ritz, but, you know...
Hope: Still a vegetarian, i see. Or are you a vegan now?
Liam: I don't know what I am anymore.
Hope: Do you want me to get you something else? There was a cute bistro around the corner if you --
Liam: No, no, no. I'm -- I'm okay. I'm okay. Thank you.
Hope: Only you're not. I ran into sally spectra, and she told me you were going through a hard time. I'm so sorry, liam.
Bill: Just handle it, justin. What? Oh, come on. Will you stop? You got to let this "other woman" thing go. I mean, shouldn't you be with your fiancÚ, right, instead of worrying about me?
Brooke: Well, other than coming here and personally thanking you myself, I am concerned about something else. It'S...it's steffy and liam. I'm worried about them.
Brooke: I went to see steffy this morning and ask her if she would want to be my matron of honor, and she -- she just wasn't herself from the moment i walked in there.
Bill: Hmm. Well, did you ask her about it?
Brooke: Yeah, I did. I did. She was very evasive. But eventually she did admit that there was problems in their marriage and that liam walked out on her. Did you know anything about this?
Bill: Uh, yes, I-I, uh... I know there's something going on there. But liam and steffy love each other, and they've been tested before, and somehow they, uh, they always find their way back together.
Brooke: But what if this time is different?
Bill: I don't even want to go there.
Brooke: [ Sighs ] Well, at least ridge is there to be there for steffy. He ran right over there. I mean, he didn't even know about it until I told him, and, of course, he was very concerned. And he's gonna be there for his daughter in case she needs him.
Ridge: You're pregnant?
Ridge: Does liam know? Why is he -- why is he not here for you?
Steffy: I know, I know. It's really confusing.
Ridge: No, it -- it really isn'T. Every-- everything is great. You're having a baby. And you're okay? You're healthy? Everything's fine?
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, I mean, it's -- it's early, but, uh, we're being cautious given my -- my history.
Ridge: No. I've -- I've been wondering why you didn't show up at the office. Now I understand. It's good.
Steffy: No. No, you don't get it.
Ridge: I do. I-I do get it. I -- this... the baby is the most important thing right now. Married couples fight. And then liam, he's gonna cool down. He's gonna come back, and everything's gonna be fine.
Steffy: Dad, I wish you were right. But like I said, I... I did something, something i deeply regret. And I don't know if liam will ever forgive me.
Bill: So, ridge is with steffy now?
Brooke: Yeah, he rushed right over there as soon as he heard there were problems.
Bill: Yeah, I think the best thing, uh, we can do for them is to stay out of it, ridge included.
Brooke: What? Why? Ridge is her father. Given how upset steffy was this morning, it would be natural for ridge to want to go over there and be there for her, especially because it seems so serious.
Brooke: I really hate to even ask this, but do you think it could be an affair? I-I know that's ridiculous to even say. Those two are so in love with each other.
Bill: Speculating, uh, I just think it's pointless. Damaged relationships, they, uh, can and do heal. That wasn't the case with ours. But, uh, with regard to liam and steffy, I really think that, uh...
Brooke: You're going to root for liam and steffy, that they will overcome whatever or whoever has come between them.
Liam: Well, that's a little better. You want to sit?
Hope: Uh, yeah. Thanks.
Liam: So how much do you know?
Hope: Uh, well, I know about your wedding in sydney. It was all over social media, steffy zip lining into the ceremony. I got to give her credit, making such a dramatic entrance, but, you know, hey, that's steffy, always a daredevil, tempting fate. I am so sorry. I mean, what am I thinking, bringing up the wedding when you're going through all this?
Liam: Hope, hope, it's okay. You have nothing to apologize for.
Hope: I just -- I know how much steffy means to you. I have to believe that whatever happened, you'll get through it. Just...don't give up.
Ridge: I-I hate to even say this. But you said something happened, so this... this kid, this -- I mean... liam's the dad -- your husband, right?
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah.
Ridge: [ Sighs ]
Steffy: And he's gonna be a wonderful father.
Ridge: Hey, I'm -- I know. And I shouldn't have even asked. You -- you wouldn'T... [ Sighs ] I'm sorry. Maybe I should go find him. I've always had a good relationship with him.
Steffy: Dad, you don't even know what this is about.
Ridge: Well, then why don't you explain to me what it's about? You're having a baby, and your husband walks away, and --
Steffy: I don't -- yeah, i don't know. I don't know when he's gonna come back.
Ridge: What -- what are you -- what are you talking about? This is the most important time in your life. You're having a family. Liam is -- he's a good guy. He's reliable, and -- and what now? All of a sudden he just walks away? Why? What?
Steffy: Dad, he didn't just walk away. He took his wedding ring off. He gave me annulment papers. And I pleaded with him. I pleaded with him, but he doesn't want to be married to me anymore, dad, and it's my fault. It's my fault.
Hope: You've got a lot of people who care about you, liam. Including sally spectra. She's very concerned about you.
Liam: [ Sighs ] Yeah, I know.
Hope: Do you also know it goes beyond just caring? Well, she's not exactly subtle. She told me you were hurting, which I can see you are, which i hate. You are a good, wonderful man, and you deserve every happiness. So if you want to talk to me about it, you can. Or not. I mean, whatever you need. I'm -- I'm here for you, liam. You've got a friend.
Brooke: Do you know where liam's staying?
Brooke: I thought maybe he'd be staying at your place.
Bill: No, he's not staying with me.
Brooke: Don't tell me you two are having issues again, not after everything that steffy did to broker the peace between you.
Bill: Don't worry about liam and me. Our focus needs to be on liam and steffy, keeping their marriage together, especially with a baby on the way.
Brooke: I know, and I agree, but how do we do that if we don't know what the problem is? Let's just hope that whatever steffy is holding inside, she will be able to talk to her father about it, and he will be there for her and support her through this.
[ Seagulls calling ]
Ridge: I don't understand any of this. He took off his wedding ring?
Steffy: Dad, I begged him not to give up on us. Not that I had any right after what I did.
Ridge: You keep saying that. You keep saying what you did. What could you have possibly done? Maybe this is not about you. Maybe it's about him. You know, maybe this whole thing with sally, may-- maybe he did fall for her.
Steffy: No, no, no, it's not about liam and sally. Yeah, I was upset, but it's not about that.
Ridge: You should have been upset.
Steffy: Dad, I didn't handle it right.
Ridge: You didn't handle what right? He was kissing sally spectra --
Steffy: He was honest with me!
Ridge: What does that -- what does that mean?
Steffy: I don't -- I shouldn't have gone to the guesthouse. I should have just stayed here and worked things out with liam, but I didn't, dad. I was upset, and I ran off.
Ridge: You're being too hard on yourself.
Steffy: No, no, if I didn't go to the guesthouse, i wouldn't -- I wouldn't have been alone. He wouldn't have showed up.
Ridge: Who wouldn't have shown up? Liam came there? He saw you there?
Ridge: Someone else?
Steffy: [ Sighs ] He listened to me. And he held me. Something happened, dad. Something happened that shouldn't have happened.
Ridge: Okay. It's okay. It's okay. You were distraught. We'll fix it. It's gonna be all right. Who was it? Who was that guy?
Steffy: It was bill, dad.
Ridge: Bill? Bill spencer did this to you?
