Steffy: I can't bear it, liam. I have to make things right. I'm not gonna give up on us. You're too important to me. Please. If you still love me... if there's any hope at all... just say that you forgive me.
Bill: I already heard it from forrester and his fist.
Ridge: [ Sighs ]
Steffy: He listened to me, and he held me. Something happened, dad. Something happened that shouldn't have happened.
Ridge: We'll fix it. It's gonna be all right. Who was it? Who was that guy?
Steffy: It was bill, dad.
Hope: Sorry. The door was open. I...thought you might have a minute to talk.
Ridge: Talk about what?
Hope: I'm worried about her.
Ridge: You talk to steffy?
Hope: Yeah. I don't know if it did much good. But maybe she'd open up to you. You know she's going through something. I can tell you're worried about her, too. Now, I'm not trying to cause problems or interfere with liam and steffy. If anything, I'm trying to help them through this. Look, I know what happened, ridge. Liam walked out on steffy. But what I don't know is why.
Brooke: You slept with his daughter.
Bill: Steffy's a grown woman.
Brooke: Do you realize what you've done, what this is going to do to your family? I thought you were trying to bring the family together, trying to earn liam's forgiveness. And instead you do this?!
Steffy: I have no right to ask you for your forgiveness. But I'm not just asking for myself. I'm asking for the sake of our family, for our child. Liam, I'm not trying to manipulate you or make you feel guilty, because that I know I'm the guilty one. But I know your heart. And I know your goodness.
[ Voice breaking ] And you know how much I love you. So I'm begging you, please... please forgive me. Please.
[ Sighs ]
Ridge: Here you go.
[ Sighs ]
Ridge: I'm glad you're home. I really am. But whatever's going on with steffy and liam has nothing to do with you.
Hope: Liam left her, ridge. I can't imagine what would make him do that. He hasn't stopped loving her. He's heartbroken, and so is she.
Ridge: So we need to support them.
Hope: Yes, and I want to do anything I can to help them.
Ridge: I understand that, but, given your history, I think it would be a little difficult.
Hope: I respect their marriage, and I have to believe that they'll get through this, whatever it is.
Ridge: I'm glad you said that. But you and steffy have always been rivals. So maybe you should sit this one out.
Hope: They're both hurting, ridge, and liam isn't mad at her. He isn't lashing out. He's devastated, and so is she. You know, maybe if we got them talking to each other -- you know, got everything out in the open...
Ridge: You're absolutely right. This needs to be dealt with. It has to be confronted. But not by you.
Hope: Okay. I get it. You don't want me to get in the middle. But, you know, maybe that's exactly what they need -- someone they both can talk to, someone who cares about them both. I want this marriage to survive, especially since steffy is pregnant.
Brooke: I never thought in a million years that you'd do something like this. Steffy said it was consensual.
Bill: You don't believe her?
Brooke: I don't know! I don't know what to believe anymore. I remember you threatening to get revenge on liam. I just never thought you'd stoop this low.
Bill: It wasn't about getting back at liam. I'm sure steffy told you what happened. I thought their marriage was over. Regardless, it shouldn't have happened. But I'm not gonna let you or anyone else turn it into something sick or sordid, because it wasn'T.
Brooke: What are you saying, bill?
Bill: I'm saying it wasn't like that.
Brooke: Like what, bill? Oh, my god! Are you saying that you have feelings for steffy?!
Liam: Listen... despite... what you did, this is not good. I don't like seeing you like this. You got to -- you got to eat. You got to stay healthy for the baby and for you.
Steffy: I'm trying. I'm trying. That's why I'm here. Liam, we're having a baby. This is so much bigger than us. We can do this. Just find a way to forgive me, for the sake of our family.
Liam: Trust me. There's nothing I want more in the world than to be able to say, "steffy, I forgive you."
Hope: I know how badly liam and steffy wanted a child, how much this baby must mean to them, and for liam to walk out now, I -- why? It doesn't make sense that a man who cares so much about family would leave his pregnant wife.
Ridge: Steffy told you about the baby?
Hope: Yeah, but... liam didn't talk about it. He didn't even bring it up. But I know he's struggling. I mean, he's staying at the dekota. He's barely even eating. He's obviously not getting enough sleep, and same with steffy. And that shouldn't be the case. I mean, she should be eating well and getting rest, and this is clearly putting stress on her, and liam knows that.
Ridge: I will make sure that steffy's okay.
Hope: Liam said something horrible happened, and I don't want to point fingers here, but steffy was clearly feeling guilty about something.
Ridge: Well, steffy shouldn't feel guilty about anything. She didn't do anything wrong.
Hope: Look, I don't want to make assumptions, but I have to ask... what was it, ridge? What did steffy do?
Brooke: You're saying you have feelings for steffy? That's why you slept with your son's wife?
Bill: I'm saying you have it all wrong. I was going through a lot. You walked out on me, and there was a situation with liam and my company. Steffy was there for me. She understood what I was going through.
Brooke: Steffy was helping you repair your relationship with liam. She got liam to forgive you. She was bringing your family together, bill. And somehow you've turned this and twisted it into some kind of romantic connection?
Bill: I didn't twist it. There's more to it than that.
Brooke: I know, bill. I understand. Believe me. I have been there before. I know the damage that this could cause steffy and liam, and you don't want to live that kind of life. This will create a big scar on the family, and it could destroy it.
Bill: You think I don't know that?
Brooke: Not to mention how personally heart-wrenching this is. You can't pursue it.
Bill: I'm not trying to. But it's not that simple.
Brooke: Oh, my god! You think you love her?!
Steffy: I swear to you, you won't regret taking me back. We will be happy. Our baby will be happy. You just have to find a place of forgiveness within you.
[ Sighs ] I'm not giving up. What's the alternative?
Liam: Maybe you can have a life with my father. Maybe that's the life you really want. You two are more alike than we are.
Ridge: I don't want you to worry about any of this. Steffy and liam -- they're gonna be okay. They have to be. There's family involved. Come on.
Brooke: I don't even know what to say to you right now.
Bill: Does that mean we're done here?
Brooke: Just tell me what happened, bill. Tell me what really happened between you and steffy. I need you to explain it.
Bill: I don't have to explain anything to you. I know what happened, and so does steffy. I'm a big boy. I'll deal with the fallout. And I don't need a parade of people with their own baggage walking here, giving me hell.
Brooke: Was it an affair?
Bill: No! No. It happened once. And it wasn't a scam. It wasn't a means to an end. I care about steffy, and I would never do anything to use her or manipulate her.
Brooke: You fell for her. Really? You really think that there are feelings there? Because steffy is so distraught that she lost liam! So, that's it? That is your justification -- that you just got carried away with your feelings for her? You had no agenda? Well, I don't believe you, bill, because you always have an agenda. Steffy is not gonna go for it. I can tell you that right now. She has way too much to lose.
Bill: There was no agenda -- none. And I don't need you to tell me what's at stake. I don't want to see my son's marriage destroyed or his family compromised.
Brooke: Well, then leave them the hell alone, bill, because if you don't, it's gonna be on you! And you're not gonna want to live your life that way. Trust me. So you'd better just hope that their family does not disintegrate because of what you've done, and you better pray that liam forgives his wife.
Liam: You said we have to take a look at what happened. Maybe you're meant to be with my father.
Steffy: What?! No! That's crazy!
Liam: You were there for each other.
Steffy: No, no, liam. We made a terrible mistake.
Liam: You even think the same way, and you could have that life, steffy.
Steffy: I don't want that life! I don't want that life! I want my life with you... our family! Just tell me what to do, liam! I'll do it! I don't know what to do! Just please tell me! I'm begging you! This is torture!
Liam: You think I'm not tortured?
Steffy: [ Sighs ]
Liam: I can't get you and my father out of my head. Now, maybe it would be different if he weren't the man that he is, but he is, so here we are.
Steffy: Liam, no! No, pl--
Liam: [ Sighs ] I can't forget, and I can't help the way that I feel, and i know -- I know -- that is a tragedy for our family.
Steffy: It doesn't have to be this way.
Liam: Steffy... forgiveness... is a precious, wonderful sentiment. The world needs more of it. But as hard as I try, as much as I want to... I can'T. I can never forgive you, steffy.
Steffy: [ Crying ] Liam.
Liam: I can never, ever forgive you. . .
