Provided By Suzanne
Steffy: Just the wedding. You don't even have to come to the reception. Obviously dad and brooke want you there, or they wouldn't have come here and invited you personally.
Liam: I know that. I -- I don't want them to think i don't appreciate it, I do.
Steffy: No, they -- they understand that nothing about this is easy.
Liam: It's just -- it's too soon. It's too soon. I -- I've hardly even left this hotel room.
Steffy: You know, there's gonna be a time when we have to be in public together. Whether it's now or in 6 months. We've got to do this. We have to. There's no choice, liam. Why not now?
Hope: You see how you are. Weddings always put you in a matchmaking mood.
Brooke: [ Scoffs ] I am not matchmaking, honey.
Hope: Oh! Oh, that innocent look!
[ Giggles ]
Brooke: Well, maybe at the moment, I'm not. It's an honest question. I know that when you left, you still had feelings for liam, and I was wondering if you still love him now.
Hope: Liam was a huge part of my life, and he always will be, and now will you please stop asking questions you already know the answer to?
Katie: This seating chart is not gonna work.
Thorne: Another forrester wedding tradition.
Katie: [ Chuckles ] Do you think eric owns all the chairs that we always use in here?
Thorne: I don't know, i haven't lived here in years. I assumed that he just rented them.
Katie: Well, we should ask about that.
Thorne: Okay. You've done this maid of honor thing before, haven't you?
Katie: Um, brooke logan is my sister, so, yeah, I've done it once or twice.
Thorne: Of course.
Katie: What about you? Have you done the best man thing before?
Thorne: Well, I guess in my case it would be second-best man, right?
Katie: Aww, come on! And here I thought you were handling the ridge and brooke redux so well.
Thorne: No, no. I have. I have. It's just, you know, clearly there's nothing coming between my brother and your sister. Anyway, I think the, uh, nsa thing is going to work out better for me.
Thorne: No strings attached.
Thorne: Like you and your stealth non-boyfriend.
Katie: [ Giggles ] Mm.
Thorne: So, where'd you find your no-strings non-boyfriend, anyway? Just so I know where to look.
Katie: For you? Well, all you'd have to do is just walk down the street, you know, and just count the heads turning.
Thorne: This is beverly hills, nobody walks anymore. I'd probably turn a few security guard heads, but that's about it.
Katie: [ Laughs ] Good point. Well, you could put yourself on one of those dating apps, you know. A handsome, multilingual, multi-millionaire looking for no-strings-attached love? I mean, people would wear their fingers out swiping.
Thorne: Mm, perhaps. But they won't be as beautiful or sophisticated as this maid of honor I know.
Katie: [ Chuckles ]
Brooke: I have to say, I was surprised that you didn't make more of a point of keeping in touch with liam while you were in milan.
Hope: Well, it's not like i vanished from the planet. You know, I still sent birthday cards or christmas cards. We sent silly selfies, but, you know, he and steffy were happy. At least I thought they were. You know, I didn't want to be the ex who couldn't let go, who kept disrupting their lives. But, you know, if steffy can hurt him this way with his own father... I can't not feel something. I can't not care.
Liam: It'll be a beautiful day, I know that. One of the things I appreciate more and more about your dad and brooke is their willingness to feel everything, the good and the bad, the happy and the painful, and they know how bad it can get, how bad it probably will get, and they just...keep signing up for it anyway.
Steffy: Because their love is stronger than that. It can get them through anything. Liam, please! For us and our baby.
Liam: Steffy, I'm -- I'm trying to say I wish I could just go to the wedding. I do. I wish I could just forget about everything that happened between you and my dad. I can'T. Please go, and wish them every happiness for me.
Katie: So, the most important question is -- what are you going to be wearing tomorrow? A tux?
Thorne: We'll see.
Katie: Mm. I don't think ridge's wedding is a time for you to be rebellious.
Thorne: So you think a clown suit would be out of the question, then.
Katie: I think so, yes.
Katie: I don't think your date would appreciate it.
Thorne: You're assuming I'll have a date.
Katie: Well, yes, I'm assuming you're flying some beautiful, exotic french woman over here to be your date. Or is she italian?
Thorne: You want to know the truth? My first dates usually go something like this. "So, monsieur forrester, are you married?" No. Widowed. "Oh, that is very sad. Do you have children?" I had a daughter. And at that point, they usually look at me like I'm this damaged guy. So first dates really aren't my thing. But I know that I would ace the second and third date if I ever got that far.
Katie: Well, if it makes you feel any better, I'll be flying solo, too, so... maybe we can work on your small talk.
Brooke: I have to warn you. Ridge doesn't think it's that simple.
Hope: Really? Well, he is very loyal to his daughter.
Brooke: And he has very strong opinions.
Hope: Hmm, what did liam say?
Brooke: Not that much.
Hope: Was that because ridge was telling him to man up, honor his commitments? "What happened had nothing to do with steffy."
Brooke: He is fighting for them to be together. We just thought it would be a nice idea if we would invite them both to our wedding, and they could be reminded what marriage is all about.
Hope: Even when it's a question of sleeping with her husband's father?
Brooke: Ridge thinks that steffy was taken advantage of. She was very vulnerable that night, and alone.
Hope: And you think that's why she wound up in bed with bill?
Brooke: No, and steffy doesn't believe that, either. She feels terrible about what happened, but she's not making any excuses.
Hope: So ridge doesn't believe her?
Brooke: Bill has just done so many horrible things this year.
Hope: Almost killing his son comes to mind.
Brooke: Yes, not to mention the spectra fire and what he did to sally. Well, the most despicable is what he did to steffy and to this marriage.
Hope: I don't disagree. But steffy isn't the victim here. Liam is.
Steffy: I know you want me to go.
Liam: Thank you.
Steffy: If you could please just realize one thing -- dad and brooke, they don't think if you come to the wedding you'll just say all is forgiven and you'll come home. They came here and invited you because you're family, and you'll always be family because of our baby, liam.
Liam: How are you feeling?
Steffy: I don't even know how to answer that.
Liam: You know what I mean. Physically, are you -- do you have morning sickness?
Steffy: So, what, are we, like, co-parenting now? That's what it feels like. It feels like you're interrogating me.
Liam: I -- I didn't mean to offend you. I just --
Steffy: No. No, it's fine. I just -- I just don't know how we're gonna be parents in a meaningful way if you can't even be in the same room as me. Maybe that can change. Maybe tomorrow can be the first step.
Brooke: Ridge knows my stance, but I need to be respectful because ridge is steffy's father, and he needs to fill that role in the way he knows best.
Hope: Well, as long as he's not trying to force something that's just not there... I mean, it's no news to you i think liam and steffy are mismatched.
Brooke: People have said that about ridge and me.
Hope: Yes, but you know what you're walking into. You and ridge have had years to figure it out, and steffy and liam, they're having a child, and I've tried to support them and what's best for their family, but... I have to admit, it worries me to think of them having a baby together.
Brooke: Do you wish you were the one having a baby with liam?
Hope: Mom, that is -- that is not what I meant.
Brooke: No, I -- [ Sighs ] I know. I just understand that liam will always be the love of your life.
Liam: Steffy, I think -- I think co-parenting is gonna involve a lot of conversations we're not ready to have yet.
Steffy: Why not?
Liam: Why not? Because -- because coexisting comes first, maybe? Because we need to be on clear footing with each other?
Steffy: I've been very clear about what I want.
Liam: I have been clear, too, and you -- you haven't signed the annulment papers I gave to you, and you aren't even willing to discuss them, so --
Steffy: How -- how can I sign those papers when it means everything I've ever wanted, everything that's ever happened, never happened? How could I do that to our child? Liam... I know I hurt you. I committed the worst crime against my husband, but... you're my life. I mean, I can -- I can run forrester, I can run a marathon. You can set me down anywhere on this planet and I can take care of myself, but... I need you. I need someone to love and come home to. I can't just give up on everything I've ever dreamed of.
Liam: I don't -- I don't have answers for you, steffy. I'm -- I'm trying to find my way through in a place I never thought I'd be.
Steffy: Yeah, I get it. I, uh...
[ Sighs ] I still disgust you.
Liam: Steffy, that's not --
Steffy: No, no. No, I get it. I -- I disgust myself. I deserve it. But I refuse to say that this over. Because I still see it when i see you.
Thorne: Oh, what did we do with the list of things we decided?
Katie: We decided? No, no, no, no. The decisions stopped being made as soon as you sat down.
Thorne: Okay, I told you i wasn't very good at this, okay? If I was a wedding planner, my card would probably say, "let's just get this over with."
Katie: [ Laughing ] That's a terrible slogan, but you are right. Why should we concern ourselves with every little detail when your brother and my sister could just overrule us?
Thorne: That's true. So, how come your, uh, mystery guy isn't escorting you to the wedding tomorrow?
Katie: Well, it would be hard to keep him a mystery if he did.
Thorne: Is he on parole?
Katie: [ Laughing ] No!
Thorne: Does he even live in L.A.?
Thorne: Assisted living.
Katie: No! God...
Thorne: Okay, all right, listen. Since he's not going to be there, would he mind if I drink and dance and generally hang out with you tomorrow?
Katie: Not at all.
Thorne: Well, good.
[ Knocking on door ]
Hope: Hungry? I made you a sandwich -- well, two, actually.
Liam: With your own hands?
Hope: [ Gasps ] Why, yes, and I washed them, and it was very strenuous, but I think I managed to make a decent pesto tomato panini.
Liam: Good god, thank you.
Hope: I figured it was hard being a vegetarian away from home.
Hope: So, where is home now?
Liam: I am currently between addresses.
Hope: I didn't fully understand that at first, but... now I do. Steffy and your father...
Liam: [ Sighs ] Damn it.
Hope: I managed to drag it out of my mom. I am so sorry, liam. I mean, I'm a lot of things -- angry, shocked. I can't believe they would -- you know what, never mind. The last thing you need to hear is how I'm feeling about all this now. Do you know what you're gonna do?
Liam: Well, that kind of depends on her.
Hope: To do what?
Liam: To sign the annulment papers I left for her.
Hope: Annulment papers. Wow. Is she refusing to sign? History would suggest that it is not easy for her to let go of you.
Liam: I just -- I didn't -- I don't want this. I didn't want any of this.
Hope: You don't have to explain.
Liam: I just can't see her the same way anymore. I love her. I still love her. I really do. I just -- I can'T.
Hope: You don't deserve any of this. I mean, I know I hurt you, too. I am not one to point fingers here.
Liam: Hope, that's -- we were very young.
Hope: Well, I -- I'd like to think we still are.
Liam: [ Snorts ] Well, a few years makes a lot of difference. Can I tell you something? I have agonized every time someone knocked on that door. Until it was you.
Hope: I have the magic knock?
Liam: Yeah, well, you have the magic something. I don't know, it's just -- it's just easier to talk to you.
Hope: And, I mean, I want you to know, if you need someone to talk to, you can always count on me. You know, when I came back home, I -- I wanted to see you happy, and you're not, and that -- that kills me. But as long as you need a friend, I mean, I -- I'm here for you. . .
