Episode #7761 ~ Brooke gets concerned for Ridge when she learns Steffy and Bill slept together; Ridge angrily confronts Bill over his actions.
Provided By SuzanneRidge: Do you really think you can take whatever you want, whenever you want it? She wasn't herself, and you took advantage of her, like the predator that you are. You violated my daughter.
Liam: Tell me!
Steffy: I can'T.
Liam: Tell me right now!
Steffy: It was bill! Oh, no, liam, please don't go. Please, liam, please don't go.
[Sobbing] No! Please! No, no! No, liam, please don't! No!
[ Knock on door ]
Steffy: Come in!
Brooke: Oh. Steffy. Your father called me and told me to come over right away.
Steffy: That's all he said?
Brooke: Yeah. What happened? Is it liam? I know you told me he left, but did something happen to him?
Steffy: No, it's -- it's not about liam. I mean, it is, but it isn'T. I'm pregnant.
Katie: [Laughing] Stop it! You know I'm ticklish!
Wyatt: That's why I'm doing it.
Katie: Ugh! Why did I ever tell you that?
Wyatt: Because we were sharing.
Katie: [ Laughs ] Mmm.
Wyatt: Mmm. Besides, that's how I get the best part of you -- your laughter.
Katie: [Laughing] No! Don't do that! Don't! Oh, my god!
[ Laughs ]
Katie: You have to stop tickling me.
Wyatt: And what if I don't?
Katie: I'm just gonna have to hold you down.
Wyatt: You can't threaten me with a good time.
Katie: [ Chuckles ]
[ Cellphone rings ] Ha ha! Saved by the bell.
Wyatt: I thought you said --
Katie: No, I'm expecting a message from brooke.
Wyatt: [ Sighs ]
Katie: Ohh. Ahh. Brooke is with steffy. She's worried about her and liam.
Wyatt: Wait. She doesn't know about dad and steffy?
Katie: Uh, no. But I have a feeling she's about to find out.
Brooke: You're pregnant? Oh, honey, that's wonderful!
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah. We didn't think it was possible.
Brooke: Uh, so... what does that mean? I mean, liam -- he didn't leave you because of the pregnancy, right? You both wanted to have a baby.
Steffy: Yeah, until, um...
Brooke: Until what?
Steffy: [ Sighs ] Liam discovered I had a paternity test.
Brooke: A paternity test. There was another man. Oh [Sighs] Steffy. Who was it?
Steffy: [ Sighs softly ] It was bill.
Brooke: [ Scoffs ]
Bill: You're upset, and i understand it, but it didn't happen the way you --
Ridge: Don't try to talk your way out of this.
Bill: I don't have to talk my way out of anything. It didn't go down the way you say.
Ridge: I know exactly how it went down. Beautiful young girl, vulnerable, just want to be left alone... in her pain, in her weakness. But you couldn't do that. You had to seek her out. And when you did, you had to make her feel safe, and when she was safe... you had to make your move. You forced yourself on my daughter -- my little girl, bill.
Wyatt: So, what -- nothing more from brooke?
Katie: No, not yet.
Wyatt: Well, that's a good sign, right? I mean, I'm sure she would have called if she heard about, you know...
Katie: Yeah, I know. It's hard to put it into words, isn't it?
Wyatt: It's hard to even think about dad and steffy together. And if brooke finds out...
Katie: Then ridge will, too, if he doesn't know already.
Brooke: You and bill?! No! No, steffy! You wouldn't do that to me!
Steffy: Brooke --
Brooke: Bill wouldn't do that to me!
Steffy: Please, please, just let me explain, please.
[ Sighs ] I was devastated when I found out about liam and sally. And I-I left. I left. I-I went to my grandfather's guest house. And I wanted to be alone, but then bill showed up, and he was worried about me. I didn't want to talk to anybody. But I-I needed to talk to someone. And he was there, and I don't know. I don't know if things just spiraled out of control.
Brooke: What do you mean?
Steffy: I just found out that my husband was kissing sally. I was just upset. And he was there, and he comforted me, and...
Brooke: But at some point, you told him to leave, right?
Steffy: It didn't happen like that.
Brooke: Well, how did it happen, steffy?
Steffy: I was upset, brooke. I was -- I was upset. I was in tears most of the time. I was devastated.
Brooke: Oh, my god. He didn'T.
Steffy: No, no. He didn't -- he didn't take advantage of me, brooke. No. It wasn't like that. We've just grown close. Bill and liam were at odds, and I was fighting for their relationship. But I-I never -- I never looked at bill that way, not once. I don't know. I -- [ Sighs ] I don't know how it happened.
[ Sniffles ] But it's the biggest mistake of my life.
Brooke: So, it only happened that one time?
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah.
[ Sniffles ]
Brooke: That's why you had to have the paternity test.
Steffy: Yeah. I was terrified that it was bill'S. And, thankfully, it's liam'S. I wanted to tell liam. I wanted to be honest with him and tell him the truth, but I...
[ Sighs ] I couldn'T.
Brooke: It would have ended your marriage.
Steffy: Bill and I swore not to say anything. And then liam found the paternity test. He found out everything, and -- and he left.
Brooke: Does your father know about you and bill?
Brooke: [ Sighs ]
Ridge: [ Breathing heavily ] You betrayed your own son and you beat up your own son, but it wasn't enough, was it? You had to take everything from him. You had to take his happiness. You had to take his wife. You had to destroy his marriage.
[ Breathing heavily ] You put your filthy hands all over my child. And I'm not gonna let that go.
[ Breathing deeply ] There will be consequences.
Bill: It didn't happen the way you say. She needed a friend!
Ridge: You know what? A friend? You think you're a friend to steffy? This is your twisted idea of what friendship is?
[ Breathing heavily ] You stalked her like an animal!
Bill: I did not sta-- I did not stalk her! She was there for me when i needed help, and I was there for her! There was no crime -- no crime! It was mutual.
Ridge: The hell it was.
Katie: [ Sighs ]
Wyatt: [ Sighs ] Can't get it out of your mind, huh? Yeah, neither can I.
Katie: [ Sighs ] All hell is gonna break loose when ridge finds out about this. You know that, right?
Wyatt: Yeah. If he finds out that his daughter slept with the enemy, he's gonna go insane.
Katie: You know, steffy swears up and down that bill did not...take advantage of her, and I-I believe her.
Wyatt: Yeah, but good luck convincing ridge of that. I mean, that guy only sees red when it comes to my dad. You know, he's never gonna believe that he didn't take advantage of her.
Katie: Well, then it may be up to brooke to convince him otherwise.
Brooke: Oh, great. Okay. So, ridge knows about you and bill?
Steffy: I didn't want to tell him, but you know how he is. I couldn't keep it from my dad.
Brooke: How did he react?
Steffy: How do you think? He blames bill.
Brooke: [ Scoffs ] Of course he would!
Steffy: Brooke, it's even worse. He thinks that it wasn't mutual.
Brooke: But you told him it was?
Steffy: He wouldn't listen to me. He wouldn't listen. He thinks bill took advantage of me.
Brooke: Oh, my god.
Steffy: I know. I know. He wants to call the police, but I told him not to. He says that I was vulnerable and that I wanted to be alone and -- and bill didn't listen and he just showed up.
Brooke: So, ridge is there right now with bill?
Brooke: [ Sighs ]
Bill: You want to kill me. I don't blame you. I'd want to do the same thing in your position. But you got to give me a chance to explain and tell you exactly what happened.
Ridge: Power, lust, and an innocent girl.
Bill: No! No! You're wrong!
Ridge: I'm not wrong. You took my daughter, you took her to bed, and you destroyed her marriage. You destroyed her life! That's what you do, right, friend? That's what you do?!
Bill: You got to get a grip for a second! Just let me talk! Let me explain! Liam and I were at war. My son, my own son, blackmailed me out of my company, and I was enraged. I wanted revenge. But steffy -- steffy helped me cut through my -- my anger and my resentment, and -- and she made me realize there is nothing more important than family. Steffy and I, we -- we got close during that time, and then liam and steffy -- they drifted apart.
Ridge: And there was your window of opportunity.
Bill: No. I wanted what steffy wanted. I wanted to keep their marriage strong. I care about her. I've cared about her from the day we met. You know that! Her happiness means everything to me. So the feelings that I have for her are completely secondary --
Ridge: I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Feelings? Let me make something perfectly clear. You will never, ever be with my daughter. She will never be with you -- not in this lifetime. Do we understand each other?
Katie: [ Sighs ] I can't see a good ending to this.
Katie: Can you?
Wyatt: Not if ridge finds out about steffy and dad.
Katie: He is going to want to kill your father, wyatt.
Wyatt: I know. He's gonna be angry. But I-I wouldn't -- wouldn't worry about that too much.
Katie: I'm worried about all of them.
Wyatt: I know, but, look, it doesn't have to be your problem.
Katie: Oh, really?
Katie: Really? So, everything that liam's going through with steffy right now -- that's not your problem?
Wyatt: Okay. Okay. You're right. But worrying about it is not gonna do anything.
Katie: [ Sighs ] Come on. I mean, it's a mess. Liam is gone. He walked out. Steffy is pregnant, alone. Brooke is gonna freak out, and i don't even want to think about ridge and bill.
Wyatt: Look, everything is gonna work out. It has to. And we will be supportive for everyone. Especially for each other.
Steffy: Brooke, you've got to talk to my dad.
Brooke: [ Sighs ] Yes, yes. Of course I'll talk to him. But, steffy, if he thinks you've been violated -- by bill, no less --
Steffy: I wasn'T. I wasn'T. It was nothing like that. And you know bill. You know bill better than anyone.
Brooke: Yes, I do. So I have to ask... and tell me honestly... are there any feelings between the two of you?
Steffy: No. No. Brooke, I just want liam to come home. I want my marriage back. I'm pregnant with liam's baby. I-I'm gonna fight. I'm gonna fight for our family, but I need you. I can't do this without your help. So if you can please talk to dad and convince him that bill didn't take advantage of me -- he wouldn't do that -- please, please, you got to do it before something terrible happens.
Bill: You're right. Steffy's never going to be with me. No matter how strong my feelings are for her, it's not what I want.
Ridge: I don't care what you want, and I don't care about your feelings for steffy.
Bill: Well, they're genuine. But I regret what happened and its repercussions. And I don't blame you for your anger. And I'm gonna ask for something, and you're not gonna believe it, but it's the truth. I'm asking for forgiveness.
Ridge: Really? You want to be forgiven?
Bill: No. I want liam to forgive steffy, and I'm gonna do whatever I can to make that happen.
Ridge: You've ruined so many lives, spencer.
Bill: Well, they're not ruined yet. Liam and steffy are going to stay married, and I'm going to do everything my power to see that that happens.
Ridge: You know what would be funny? That big, bad bill spencer didn't have the power it takes to do that.
Bill: We'll see about that, won't we? But I can't do it alone. I need your help.
Ridge: [ Chuckles ]
Bill: I need your help to convince liam to stay with steffy, to make him understand that there is nothing more important than the fact that she is carrying his child, our grandchild... a grandchild that we want to grow up in a stable home, because my kids didn't have that, and neither did yours.
Ridge: Okay. Let me just make sure that i understand you. You sleep with my daughter... you do the worst thing that any father could do to his son... and now you're asking me to help you patch it up?
Bill: No. Not patch it up. It's bigger than that. It's bigger than your overinflated ego and mine, as well. It's bigger than both of us. It's about that child... that baby that is growing inside your daughter...
Ridge: [ Sighs ]
Bill: ...A baby that needs to be loved, nourished, cared for by two parents living together in the same house. We cannot, you and I -- we cannot let that marriage crumble.
Ridge: No. I need you to stay away from my daughter. And then I'm gonna try to explain to her whatever this is. And then I'm gonna go to the police, and I'm gonna file charges, and you're gonna go to prison... and I'm gonna watch you suffer for what you did to my family.
