Ridge: You're having a girl? You're having a little girl?!
[ Both laugh ]
Steffy: I wanted you to be the first to know.
Ridge: Ohh! I'm having a granddaughter!
Steffy: Yeah, you are.
Ridge: Ohhh! How did liam react?
Steffy: Uh, kind of like you, yeah.
Ridge: I'm so glad he came to the ultrasound.
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, I wasn't sure he was gonna make it. But it meant the world to me that he did. You know, we got to see our child for the first time, and we were together.
Wyatt: Dude, you're having a girl?! This -- this calls for, like, a celebration drink! We should raid the minibar.
Liam: It's crazy, right?
Wyatt: She's gonna be a handful. You do know that, right?
Liam: Yeah. Well, if she's anything like her mother, we'll be struggling to keep up.
Wyatt: [ Chuckles ] Yeah. So -- so how did it feel, you know? See-- seeing your baby on that screen?
Liam: Yeah, I don't know. It's hard to describe. It's -- it'S... unreal. And to think, I would have missed it if it weren't for hope.
Hope: Hope for the future is back!
Maya: Wow! Congratulations.
Rick: Yeah, that's awesome. How did you manage to convince ridge?
Hope: Uh, you know, I kept reminding him it's something i was passionate about, and how successful it was in the past, and once he ran the numbers, we were literally back in business.
Maya: Well, we couldn't be happier for you. And for forrester.
Hope: I mean, the timing is perfect, especially for me. I mean, I needed a project. And what better one than this? Hope for the future. My baby.
Ridge: Well, I got to say, I'm surprised that ridge is giving you the go sign.
Hope: Well, he says he believes in the line.
Rick: Just seems he keeps trying to find excuses to not revive it.
Maya: Well, knowing ridge, he wouldn't give the green light to a project this big or this expensive if he didn't believe in it.
Hope: I agree. I mean, he's counting on big margins from this line. And he even asked thorne to be a part of my design team.
Rick: Wait, best-man thorne?
Hope: Yeah, I was surprised, too.
Maya: How do you feel about working with thorne?
Hope: Uh, great. I mean, I'm lucky to have him, and ridge agrees.
Rick: Well, it looks like you and ridge are seeing eye to eye.
Hope: Yeah. On a lot of things these days.
Ridge: I imagine it had quite an impact on liam.
Steffy: Yeah. Seeing his child for the first time? He was mesmerized.
Ridge: Good. That's the first step, right?
Steffy: Yeah, it's a baby step. He left the office a different person. He's a father of a little girl. It definitely had an impact on him, but not enough to forgive me. Not yet.
Wyatt: How does hope factor into this?
Liam: She's the one who talked me into going. Here.
Liam: She's beautiful, right?
Wyatt: Gets that from her uncle, though. So, you're welcome.
[ Liam chuckles ] It's just -- it's incredible. I mean, that this is my daughter. That's my daughter right there. Living, growing, and ready to take on the world someday.
Wyatt: Talk about a life moment, huh?
Liam: Yeah, sure wasn't something I was prepared for.
Wyatt: Did it make a difference for you? Like, did it, I don't know, change anything? Like maybe how you view your relationship with steffy?
Maya: That one. That piece right there, I saw on robertson the other day.
Rick: In a store?
Maya: No, on a woman.
Hope: They are still wearing them in europe.
Maya: They're timeless.
Rick: At least, the message is.
Maya: Especially for this generation.
Rick: Yeah. Take back the world.
Hope: If we don't, who will?
Maya: That's right. Look, it's fashion, it's social outreach. It's -- it's brilliant, hope.
Rick: If the brand hasn't gotten stale.
Maya: They're still wearing the clothes. Oh, look that one. I'd forgotten about that.
Hope: The brand, rick, is trying to clean up the mess that our world is in right now. You know, the world that our generation is inheriting?
Maya: It sure hasn't gotten any better since the line came out.
Hope: Exactly. Which is why I want to re-introduce it with a stronger message and a greater sense of urgency. And that is exactly what I intend to do.
Ridge: Look at you! I haven't seen you like this in a while. That ultrasound was a game changer.
Steffy: Yeah, I think it was. Liam says he's not ready to forgive, "not yet." He said those two words, and that just gave me hope. I think, in time, he'll be able to forgive me.
Ridge: He will. Hey.
Ridge: There's nothing more beautiful to a man than the woman he loves carrying his child. Liam sees that. He's gonna come around. He will.
Wyatt: Did seeing your daughter maybe make things more real for you? Like, I don't know. Did it make you a little more open to trying to work things out with steffy?
Liam: [ Sighs ] I think I got to get the image of steffy and dad out of my head first.
Wyatt: Right. But, I mean, that's a matter of willpower, and you got a lot of that.
Liam: Wyatt, I don't think I can be pressured on this.
Wyatt: Pressured? I'm not -- I'm not pressuring you. No, no. What dad did to you was our father at his worst. He deserves every ounce of anger you have for him right now.
Liam: I know. He does. But it takes two.
Wyatt: Well -- yeah. I mean, I guess this -- this is as good a time as any. For transparency's sake, I just -- I want you to know that... I'm not -- I'm not leaving the company because of all this.
Liam: Yeah, I know. I figured. I mean, you are the heir apparent, so...
Wyatt: Yeah, but that's not what this is about, liam.
Wyatt: Yeah. Look, dude, I-I agree with you on how you feel about dad. Like, he is wrong way beyond words right now, and I just -- but this is about you two, okay? This is between you two, and -- and there's a company that needs to be run here, and I need to be there for dad, to help him through all of this mess. Like, to help him run the company and, like, dad, I got to be there for --
Liam: All right, all right, all right, I got it. Okay, fine. I got it. I don't want to fight about this. Whatever. I -- I don't even want to think about dad right now. How -- how are things with you and katie?
Wyatt: Uh... well, they're not...good. I kind of broke things off with her.
Liam: What? Why?
Wyatt: I saw her kissing thorne at ridge and brooke's wedding.
Liam: You saw -- you saw katie kissing thorne?
Liam: Oh, man.
Liam: But then -- but whatever, right? 'Cause aren't you guys all about, like, free love and no strings and all that?
Liam: Until you saw her kissing another man, and you couldn't handle it.
Wyatt: Okay. Uh... so, I'm about to have a niece. That's pretty cool.
Liam: Yeah. You probably won't be able to handle her, either.
Wyatt: Uncles spoil. Dads discipline. That's just the way things are. But dads, they have to be around.
Liam: Yeah, well, in the meantime, there's too much of our dad in my head. I got to get him out first.
Wyatt: Well, keep at it. Okay? Not for steffy's sake, but... for that little girl.
[ Knock on door ]
Steffy: You busy?
Hope: Uh, just, um, working on some stuff.
[ Sighs ] It's good to see you here.
Hope: Uh, the ultrasound go well?
Steffy: Yeah. Liam and I are having a baby girl.
Hope: [ Gasps ] A girl?
Hope: Oh, steffy, that's wonderful!
[ Steffy laughs ] Oh, my gosh. I am so happy for both of you.
Steffy: Thank you.
Pam: Hope for the future is back?
Rick: Yeah. And get this -- thorne's designing the new line.
Pam: Uh-oh. Wait till ridge gets wind of that -- kaboom!
Maya: Eh, it was ridge's idea.
Pam: No way.
Rick: Yeah. Apparently they had some sort of resolve after he was his best man.
Pam: You mean brothers not at each other's throats?
Rick: [ Chuckles ] Yeah.
Maya: Well, they're not exactly walking arm-in-arm down the hall, but...
[ Laughter ]
Pam: By the way, do you guys know that our pregnant co-C.E.O. Is back in the building?
Rick: Steffy's back?
Maya: How did she seem?
Pam: Pretty good, actually.
Maya: Well, maybe she and liam worked things out.
Rick: Do you happen to know anything, pam?
Pam: Um, not yet. But I am keeping my ear to the wall.
Rick: [ Chuckles ] Yeah.
Ridge: Hey, guys. I have an idea.
Ridge: Let's not gossip about steffy, about liam, or their marriage. What do you guys think?
Liam: I mean, one -- one thing is for certain. My daughter will have her father in her life. She's not gonna grow up the way we did, not knowing.
Wyatt: Right. Of course not. You're gonna be a great dad to that little girl.
Liam: Thanks. I hope so.
Wyatt: Hey, you just got to get back to life. You need some sun, some fresh air. Maybe an air freshener or something in here, 'cause you're starting to stink like a zombie.
Liam: That's funny. Hope said the same thing.
Wyatt: [ Scoffs ]
Liam: You know, she mentioned maybe going to work with her at hope for the future. I mean, if -- if ridge green-lights it again.
Wyatt: Really? Well, what -- what would you do there?
Liam: Uh, I would just be focusing on the philanthropic side of things.
Wyatt: That's not a bad idea, I guess.
Wyatt: Yeah, right?
Wyatt: Wow. [ Scoffs ] Hope just -- just keeps coming through for you and steffy, huh?
Hope: A little girl! That's so exciting.
Steffy: Yeah. She'll probably end up being just like me. Karmic payback.
Hope: [ Laughs ] Well, did it matter to you at all, boy, girl?
Steffy: No. Just a healthy, happy baby.
Hope: Liam's gonna adore his little daughter.
Steffy: She's gonna have her father wrapped around her finger.
Hope: [ Chuckles ]
Steffy: Thanks, by the way.
Hope: Oh, it was...
Steffy: No. Liam showed up at the ultrasound, and it was because of you.
Hope: Well, he needed to be there.
Steffy: And you made him see that.
Hope: He probably would have on his own.
Steffy: I don't know. It made all the difference having him there beside me when we saw the picture on the monitor. And there she was. It was just such a beautiful moment.
Hope: Well, that's the way it should be, steffy.
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, it should.
Hope: Well, hopefully next time I won't have to convince him.
Steffy: I don't know. Maybe you will. He still hasn't forgiven me. It was a really powerful moment, seeing our baby together for the first time. Like a husband and wife should. But it wasn't enough to repair our marriage.
Hope: Well, did you talk about it?
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, I-I pleaded with him. But all he could say was, "not yet."
Hope: "Not yet." Steffy, that's a good thing.
Steffy: That's what I'm hoping.
Hope: Yeah! It definitely is. It just means he needs more time.
Steffy: You think that's what he's saying?
Hope: Don't you?
Steffy: Y-yeah, I-I want to.
Hope: Well, you should. I mean, this just means he's working through it, and he just needs some more time to get past it. And, you know, he will.
Steffy: And it's because of you. Thank you, hope.
Pam: I'm really sorry, ridge.
Rick: Yeah. We'll just keep the gossip strictly to you and mom.
Ridge: That makes sense.
Maya: How is steffy?
Ridge: She's okay. You know, she's going through some stuff.
Pam: How is the pregnancy going?
Ridge: [ Sighs ] Good. I actually have some news. I'm gonna have a granddaughter.
Pam: [ Gasps ] Ridge!
Rick: Congratulations, grandpa!
Ridge: It doesn't scare me.
Rick: I'm supposing that liam knows, or...?
Ridge: Yeah. He was at the ultrasound. And I hope their little girl is going to melt his heart. Bring that family back together.
Liam: [ Sighs ]
Hope: Steffy's having her first ultrasound?
Hope: Well, I mean, you're gonna go, right? I mean, this is an important event. It's the first time you get to look at your son or daughter.
Steffy: Oh, my god.
Liam: It's a girl.
Steffy: [Crying] A little girl? Oh!
Liam: You are a good friend to me.
Hope: Yeah, well, I am here whenever you need me.
Hope: You don't need to thank me, steffy.
Steffy: Yes, I do. Liam come to the ultrasound because of you.
Hope: No. Your baby is the reason he went, and the reason why he will never abandon your family.
Steffy: After all this time, and everything I've done, you continue to support me. I can see why liam respects you.
Hope: Well, that's why I encouraged him to go to the ultrasound.
Steffy: You knew he needed that.
Hope: Well, it's something he would have regretted missing.
Steffy: And you made sure he didn'T.
Hope: Just... [ Sighs ] Just be good to him, steffy. I mean, better yet, be good for him. You know, he will always be there for you, your family. You don't ever have to worry about that. And he will never do to your child what his father did to him.
Steffy: I am lucky to have you in my corner. You're the one person liam listens to. And if this works out the way you say, I might owe my marriage to you. Oh, yeah. I totally forgot. I spoke to my dad. Sounds like a "congratulations!" Is in order. He told me about hope for the future.
Hope: Oh, yeah. Thank you! I'm anxious to get started on it.
Steffy: Yeah. And I just want you to know that I support you.
Hope: You do?
Steffy: Yeah. Completely.
Hope: I wasn't sure. I mean, you weren't too crazy about it in the past.
Steffy: But after everything you've done for me, I definitely would love to get behind your project.
Hope: Thank you.
Steffy: Of course. I know it feels so early, but... I really believe that liam's gonna find a way to forgive me. And when he does, you're gonna have a hand in it. I promise you, hope, I'm not gonna let you down. I'm not gonna let liam down. You may have saved my family. How beautifully ironic. Thank you. Hope, thank you so much for everything.
Hope: I'm happy for you, steffy. I really am.
