Brooke: Oh, you seem a little bit distracted. I know I just popped in on you, but if there's something that you should be doing...
Katie: Well, I guess there's something I wish I was doing, but that is over now. Wyatt broke things off.
Brooke: You're kidding!
Katie: Things were going really, really well, and now it's just done.
Brooke: I mean, I know that you did tell me there were no strings attached. But it does seem like you miss him.
Quinn: I brought you some sandwiches. I thought we could have an early lunch together.
Wyatt: Thank you, but I am not hungry.
Quinn: You seem really cranky. Did bill do something awful to you?
[ Wyatt scoffs ] I'm sure that happens here on a daily basis. You know you can always come back to work at forrester. I have an in with the big boss.
Wyatt: It wasn't dad.
Quinn: Is it katie?
Wyatt: Oh, god.
Quinn: Is there trouble in paradise?
Wyatt: Can you just -- can you try and contain your enthusiasm, please? Katie and I are over.
Pam: You and ridge have a conference call with international in an hour.
Steffy: Okay, great.
Pam: How ya feeling? Can I get you anything? You've got precious cargo in there.
Steffy: [ Laughs ] I am great, thank you.
Pam: Your grandmother would be bursting with pride right now, steffy. She loved you so much. And so do I. Ease whatever's going on between you two. I can't imagine anything that could keep you apart at this time in your lives.
Bill: Do I need to grease more palms to get us through this process faster? I'd like to see sky go up in my freaking lifetime.
Justin: Relax. I called in a few favors. We're good. Is there anything else you want to go over?
Bill: There is one matter. I'm having a granddaughter.
Justin: [ Chuckles ] Oh, man! A baby girl, huh? She'll have you wrapped in no time flat. Though I imagine this is bittersweet news for you.
Bill: May I help you?
Sally: Hi. Uh, yeah. Alison, um, wasn't at her desk.
Bill: Remind me to revoke her parking space.
Sally: I couldn't help overhearing. Liam and steffy are having a daughter?
Sally: That makes things real, doesn't it?
Bill: Why are you here? We didn't have an appointment scheduled.
Sally: That's the thing. Yeah, you, uh, keep canceling all the appointments I set up. We need to talk.
Pam: I can see that you don't want to talk about whatever it is. And that's okay, honey. Just, if there's anything at all I can do...
Steffy: Thanks, pam.
Pam: I have always had a soft spot for you. My sister's namesake. Just like her.
[ Steffy laughs ] There isn't anything that I wouldn't do for you.
Steffy: Don't worry. I'll be fine.
Ridge: Hey, pam.
Ridge: Everything okay?
Pam: Yeah, just a little girl talk. Grandpa. Don't forget -- anything.
Steffy: Thank you.
[ Sighs ]
Ridge: She's still wondering what happened between you and liam?
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah. I just don't know why we're separated when there's a baby on the way.
Ridge: Well, I don't know that, either. The only reason we're here in this situation is because of spencer.
Justin: You have to understand, ms. Spectra, this is a very busy man.
Bill: It's okay, justin. I got this.
Justin: I'll get to work on those permits.
Sally: Full disclosure. I've seen liam. I know something serious happened between him and steffy.
Bill: Do you, now?
Sally: He moved out. He's really upset with you.
Bill: How is that any of your business?
Sally: I'm just saying. Now that liam'S...preoccupied, I thought maybe you and I could talk about how to rebuild spectra fashions -- you know, like you promised.
Quinn: I'm surprised. I thought you and katie were good.
Wyatt: Yeah, so did I.
Quinn: So why did she end things?
Wyatt: She didn'T. I did.
Quinn: Then why are you upset?
Wyatt: I saw her kissing thorne.
Wyatt: At your place. At brooke and ridge's wedding.
Quinn: [ Sighs ] But you weren't even there.
Wyatt: Ah, but thanks to katie's trusty telescope, it's as if I was.
Brooke: How's the neighborhood watch going these days, hm? You know this is looking right down on the forrester balcony? Have you been spying on eric and quinn?
Katie: I'm not spying on anybody.
Brooke: Okay. I was just trying to make you laugh. You don't have to get so defensive.
Katie: I'm -- I'm sorry. I'm sorry, I really -- I-I can take a joke, just maybe not -- maybe not today.
Brooke: I know this is a difficult time for you. But you did say that you and wyatt were just free and easy.
Katie: I know. And --
[Sighs] I'm just surprised that he broke it off so suddenly -- I mean, right after your wedding.
Ridge: I'm trying to focus on my granddaughter. But all I think about is what bill did to you.
Steffy: Dad, it wasn't like that.
Ridge: And you keep defending him. It's a mystery.
Steffy: Because bill didn't do what you're accusing him of. I hate what happened, but I allowed it.
Ridge: You were in pain. You thought your marriage was over.
Steffy: Okay. You won't even hear me.
Ridge: Because I know how he operates.
Steffy: [ Sighs ]
Ridge: If bill wants something, he goes out and he gets it. It doesn't matter if he destroys spectra or liam's life or your life.
Steffy: Okay, you're sounding like this is calculated. It wasn'T. This was out of the moment.
Ridge: This is a moment that he anticipated. This is what he knew was going to happen. He took advantage of you. He used you the same way he uses everyone else.
Sally: I don't mean to take up much of your valuable time, but I have narrowed down the new site for spectra fashions to three different locations, all in the same price range. I just need you to sign off on one of them.
Bill: Sign off?
Sally: Yes. Since you and liam so graciously agreed to set us up in a new building, which we are eternally grateful for that. I've got like a zillion ideas clamoring around in my head. That's what I get for having so much time off. Anyway. These are the three folders with all of the information you need to make an evaluation.
Bill: Don't bother.
Sally: I'm sorry?
Bill: I've already decided. I'll go with option number four.
Sally: There's only three choices.
Bill: No, there's always another choice. None of the above.
Wyatt: It's ironic, isn't it?
Wyatt: Like, I-I'm the one who insisted on a non-exclusive relationship, and then katie takes my word to heart, she kisses another guy, and then I'm the one with my heart just hanging out.
Quinn: You'll get over it. You'll have to.
Wyatt: Oh, my --
Quinn: I mean, katie is bill's ex-wife. How do you think your father is gonna react when he finds out about the two of you?
Wyatt: It's not gonna be pretty. I can tell you that.
Quinn: Right. So you need to forget about the past, think about the future, and just move forward.
Wyatt: I can't! Mom, I can'T. That's why I texted her, but I just -- I haven't heard back.
Quinn: Maybe that's because she came to her senses and realized that there's no future for this relationship. Maybe that's why she put her attention towards thorne.
Wyatt: Wow. Well, you know what? I'm not -- I'm not gonna end it this way.
[ Keys beeping ]
Katie: I had a really good meeting with hope.
[ Cellphone rings ] She was -- oh, hang on. Wyatt. Hi.
Wyatt: Uh, I need to see you.
Wyatt: I-I just -- I want to talk to you. Where are you?
Katie: I-I'm at home. Uh, brooke's here.
Wyatt: All right. I'm on my way.
Quinn: What? No! Wait!
Wyatt: Thank you for lunch.
Quinn: Finish your sandwich at least!
Brooke: Sounds like my cue to leave.
Katie: He ended things. I mean, why would he want to see me?
Brooke: Maybe he realized he made a mistake.
Steffy: You seriously need to let this go.
Ridge: How am i supposed to do that? You're my daughter.
Steffy: I am your grown daughter.
Ridge: My grown daughter who was hurt, and vulnerable to a guy who takes advantage of her, who takes anything he wants.
Steffy: Why do you keep making me admit this? I was just as responsible as bill that night.
Ridge: You wanted to be in the guesthouse by yourself. He tracked you down, and he wouldn't leave.
Steffy: Dad, stop. The last person I want to talk about right now is bill.
Sally: Guess I need to remind you. You promised to help rebuild spectra fashions. Whatever we need -- that's what you said.
Bill: That promise was connected to liam. As long as he was working here, I would help you and spectra. He's not working here anymore.
Sally: You just created a giant loophole. That was not the deal. There was no caveat about liam working here. You helping us was restitution for you blowing up my building.
Bill: My building. Mine. Goodbye, sally. I said leave. I don't want to see you again.
Katie: Uh, I'm a little confused as to why you're here. I thought we weren't doing this anymore.
Wyatt: Yeah. Uh... about that. I-I should have come clean with you the night of the wedding.
Katie: The night you broke up with me?
Wyatt: [ Sighs ] Yeah. I kind of left out some key information. Pretty much the whole reason why I did what I did.
Katie: Well, I'd really like to know.
Wyatt: I came by here to surprise you. Like, I-I had flowers and candles --
Katie: What -- [ Stammers ] Then -- then why would you --
Wyatt: I was setting everything up and you weren't here, and I was just wondering where you were, so I-I went over and i peeked outside. I-I thought maybe if I could spot you, I could kind of gauge how long it was gonna take for you to come back here. Um... so, then I looked in your telescope over there...
Wyatt: And I saw you, uh, and thorne...kissing.
Katie: [ Sighs ] Oh, god. On the patio.
Katie: Wyatt, I'm so sorry about that. You -- you should have said something.
Wyatt: I didn't -- I was confused, you know? I-I -- I was the one that was pushing this whole no-strings-relationship thing, and -- and -- [ Scoffs ] How was I to justify that -- that I was hurt, and I was jealous of you with another guy, and...
Katie: You were jealous?
Wyatt: No. Uh...
Katie: I mean, that's just what you just said.
Wyatt: [ Scoffs ] Maybe. That's when I realized how much I cared about you. Seeing you with thorne, and the feelings that come along with that, like jealousy, it's just that wasn't a part of our arrangement. And I just -- I got freaked out, and that's why I-I broke things off with you. And now there's the hard part, which was... being without you. Katie, I -- I am crazy about you. And without you, I just -- it was awful. So that's why I sent you that text, you know, telling you that I regretted breaking things off --
Katie: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Wait, wait, wait. What? I didn't get a text.
Ridge: Hey. I'm sorry. I'm happy for you. You -- you're gonna have the family you always wanted. You're gonna have a little girl.
[ Steffy chuckles ] And before too long, you're gonna be a parent. And that changes everything. Because it doesn't matter how old your daughter is. She will always be your little girl. Always. When you were born, I vowed to keep you safe from harm. And I don't care how you look at it -- what bill did to you caused you harm. I'm not gonna let that happen ever again. I'm gonna protect you. I will do whatever I have to do.
Bill: Liam had a soft spot for you. Like he does for dogs and cats and strays of all kinds. But liam doesn't work here anymore, and the charity train just pulled into the station. Whoo! Whoo! Stops here. No more handouts.
Sally: Wow. How did liam ever come from you? You are a monster. You have no heart. You know, when I think of all of the horrible things that you have done to me -- systematically dismantling my career as if it was nothing, panning my line in your magazine, setting fire to spectra fashions just to get rid of me. And then, when I didn't disappear, you blew up the building with your son and me inside, and those are just the things that I know about. 'Cause I'm sure you've done a heck of a lot worse. And you're not even sorry. Sitting there all smug and self-satisfied. Like [Scoffs] Being rich and powerful gives you the right to destroy people that aren'T. Absolves you from any responsibility of being a decent human being. Well, you know what? Let me tell you something, bill. All that money and power does not disguise what you really, truly are. A coward.
Bill: Are you done?
Sally: Your days are numbered. And when you least expect it, someone is going to put an end to your reign of terror.
Bill: [ Chuckles ] You're threatening me?
Sally: I'm telling you. You're gonna be stopped.
Bill: Well, not today. And not by you.
Sally: I have never hated anyone as much as I hate you.
Wyatt: Right there. It even says you read it.
Katie: No, look.
Katie: I-I don't have it. It's not there.
Wyatt: That'S... weird. Why -- it must be like a cell-service mix-up. I don't understand.
Katie: A mix-up.
Katie: [ Sighs ] Oh, my god. Thorne?
Wyatt: What about him?
Katie: We -- we have the same phone, and he accidentally took mine, and -- when did you send me this message?
Wyatt: Right there.
Katie: Yeah. Yeah, that's pretty much when he had my phone. He...must have deleted it.
Wyatt: Wow. I mean, that's -- that's kind of crazy, don't you think?
Katie: Yeah, he certainly had no right to do that.
Wyatt: Right. Well, you -- you can give him hell at another time. 'Cause I don't want to talk about him anymore.
Katie: Well, then, why are you here?
Wyatt: I don't want us to be over.
Katie: But nothing has changed. I-I don't want to hold you back.
Wyatt: Well, neither do I. That's why I don't want to look back. I want to try and have a future with you, katie.
Katie: But we still have the same complications as before, wyatt.
Wyatt: The wrath of my father. My position at spencer. The family and all of that. I know.
Katie: Yeah. It's a lot.
Wyatt: And I've always loved a challenge.
Katie: Are you serious about this?
Wyatt: I have never been more serious about anything in my entire life. That's why I sent you that text. Like, this time, without you, I realized I -- I want you, katie. Your sparkle. Your glow. Your sexy costumes.
[ Katie laughs ] The warm, fuzzy feeling that you -- that you create inside me here.
Katie: I make you feel warm and fuzzy?
Wyatt: Oh, yeah. Yeah, without even trying. Look, I was an idiot to think that I could let you go. See, a funny thing happened on the way to this moment right here. I fell completely and madly in love with you.
Katie: You did?
Katie: I love you, too.
