Taylor: I told you. The moment I saw that beautiful little girl... I can't explain it, but... part of me knew almost immediately.

Steffy: That she should be part of my family?

Taylor: Yeah. It's starting to really feel like it. Oh, my goodness, are you ready?

Steffy: Yeah, of course. Being a twin, I can handle it. So what if this baby and kelly, they aren't blood? It doesn't matter. They're sisters. Phoebe's legacy lives on.

Reese: Okay, this is good. This is very, very good. You go over there, you seal the deal. You know what to do, right?

I know, I know. Please don't put any more pressure on me.

Reese: I'm not trying to put any pressure on you. It's just that this next step, it's crucial.

Steffy is obviously interested in pursuing this. I mean, she wouldn't have invited me over to bring the baby to meet her daughter if she wasn'T.

Reese: Mm-hmm, that's a positive sign, yes. Now, you said that they bonded instantly.

They did, just like you were hoping they would.

Reese: And now she wants to see if her daughter bonds with the baby, too.

No offense to steffy, but they're babies. How much bonding can possibly happen? Napping together? Synchronized crying?

Reese: I-I don't know. I don't know, but, look, just make it happen. For both of our sakes... you make this happen.

Zoe: Tell me you guys are almost done.

Emma: I realize you're a big-shot model, but we still have work to do.

Zoe: Okay, so then let me help. You guys know that we have a big audition and we cannot be late.

Tiffany: Remind me again why the three of us signed up for this.

Emma: Tiffany! You can't back out now. We're about to get discovered. I can feel it.

Tiffany: Or we could embarrass ourselves in front of the whole country. You know how these shows work. There's always an episode where they highlight the worst of the worst.

[ Laughter ]

Zoe: We're not that bad. We're not that bad.

Tiffany: Well...

Emma: [ Giggles ]

Liam: Sorry, I didn't want to spoil anything.

Zoe: You're not, it's just...

Liam: Hey, guys, um... you know, you get to laugh around me, right?

Emma: We feel so awful.

Liam: I know, and thank you. And also, we got -- we got your flowers, which was -- which was really sweet. How's your dad?

Zoe: Oh, liam, the fact that you would even -- you're very kind.

Liam: Yeah, well, I mean, it affected him, too, obviously.

Zoe: Yeah. It did. Um, I think that night, that loss, affected him a little more than he's letting on.

[ Cellphone rings ]

Reese: Taylor, hey.

Taylor: I've got news.

Reese: Okay.

Taylor: The meeting went well.

Reese: Yeah, florence said that, uh, steffy was gonna bring her daughter by to meet the baby.

Taylor: Oh! Yes.

Reese: And they're on their way right now.

Taylor: Good!

Reese: So, that goes well, then...?

Taylor: It doesn't exactly matter. That's my news. She's already decided. Steffy would like very much to adopt florence's baby.

Reese: She would?

Taylor: Yeah, uh, I just hope it's not a long, drawn-out process.

Reese: No, no, no. No, no. Just some papers to sign, and, uh, then there is the matter of payment.

Taylor: Oh, do you have any idea how much florence wants?

Reese: $250,000.

Taylor: Oh.

Reese: I know it sounds like a lot, but it's expensive to expedite all of this, plus, there's the debt that's in front of florence. You know, this money will really put her life back on track.

Taylor: Money is not an issue.

Reese: Great. Great. Um, is a down payment possible? Just to reassure florence of steffy's commitment.

Taylor: Yeah, that seems reasonable.

Reese: $50,000 ought to do it.

Taylor: I can give her a check when she comes here.

Reese: No. No, no, no. That's not -- she wanted me to handle it.

Taylor: Oh, okay.

Reese: Yeah, so just bring it to me. But in cash, though. Cash is good.

Taylor: Okay, so, how soon would you need it?

Reese: No time like the present, if you're able. Unless steffy isn't serious.

Taylor: Oh, yes, she's very serious. Very serious. I'll go to the bank, and then I'll just come right over.

Reese: Thank you. I -- I hope this isn't too much trouble.

Taylor: Anything at all for my daughter.

Reese: Yeah. I know just how you feel.

Taylor: Okay, I'll see you soon.

Steffy: What did they say? Did they agree?

Taylor: Well, um, yes. They're asking a lot. $250,000. I want to do it. For you and for kelly. It's worth it to me.

Steffy: [ Sighs ] For a baby I instinctively know is kelly's little sister... I'd almost pay anything.

[ Cellphone rings ]

Liam: Hey.

Steffy: Hey, are you busy?

Liam: Uh, I'm just wrapping up.

Steffy: Any chance you could come over?

Liam: Yeah. Sure. Is -- is it about kelly? Is she all right?

Steffy: Kelly's fine. But it does have something to do with her. Can you just come? There's something I need you to see.

Reese: Well, that was fast.

Taylor: Seems like you want this done right away.

Reese: Well, you said steffy does, too.

Taylor: Yeah, it's -- it's best for the baby to get her settled into her new home, assuming this is all still happening.

Reese: Assuming there's $50,000 in that bag.

Taylor: Oh! Cash. [ Laughs ] Just like you requested. I can tell you how nerve-racking it was leaving the bank with this.

Reese: [ Chuckles ]

Taylor: You want to count it?

Reese: Oh, please. That's not necessary.

Taylor: I was just surprised that florence needed cash. I'm not really sure why that matters.

Reese: Well, some debts require anonymity. Plus, it makes the expediting a lot easier.

Taylor: Oh, okay. As long as everybody gets what they wanted.

Reese: I think that's what's happening. Some debts get paid off, and a little girl gets a much-needed home.

Taylor: So, what are the next steps to make that happen? I thought maybe there might be some paperwork or something for me to sign now that I've, you know, given you this down payment.

Reese: I'm putting florence in contact with a lawyer in las vegas. He'll handle it. But I could give you a receipt.

Taylor: Oh, please. That's not necessary.

[ Both laugh ]

Reese: I'm gonna miss you.

Taylor: Miss me? Is one of us leaving?

Reese: [ Chuckles ] I, um... I've just been offered a transfer, and after what happened on catalina... I just might take it. I've got a lot of thinking to do.

Taylor: I understand. Kind of. I mean, I have to admit, I'm a little sad about the idea. I haven't known you very long, but... you've brought so much joy to my life, and, more importantly, my daughter'S. I'm just so grateful that I let you.

Reese: The feeling's mutual.

Steffy: You didn't have trouble finding the place?

No, no. Well, maybe a little bit of trouble keeping my eyes on the road. I was looking around a lot. I can't believe I'm actually in malibu.

Steffy: Oh, it's your first time?

Yeah, I've seen it on tv and movies, but I've never actually been here. I feel so...rich and fancy. Especially walking up to your front door. I mean, this view that you have, it's incredible. And to think I can give my little girl a house like this, it's amazing.

Steffy: Your daughter will be well taken care of.

Your daughter. That is, if you still think she'll make a good addition to your family.

Steffy: Oh, I know she will. May I?


Steffy: [ Laughing ] Oh!

Andrew wanted nothing to do with his volcano demonstration.

Steffy: Have you seen anything cuter? The way they were sleeping like that, it's like they were bonding in their dreams.

Are you sure it's not too much trouble? She doesn't sleep for that long, but I can always wake her up and take her off your hands.

Steffy: No, no, no, no. Let them sleep. And you're more than welcome to stay as long as you want. But I hope you don't mind, I -- I called kelly's father over to meet the baby.

Oh. Yeah, sure, that's -- that's fine.

Steffy: Okay. He's on his way. I just feel like it's important. Even though he and I aren't together, I would be giving his daughter a little sister. I don't want him to feel excluded.

Right, I -- I get it, um, but maybe I should be -- excluded, i mean, from the whole moment.

Steffy: What do you mean?

Well, I -- I like the idea of the four of you bonding. It just might be a little awkward if I'm here.

Steffy: No, no. Not at all.

But I'm in malibu for the first and probably last time in my life. Why don't I just take a little drive, go walk on the beach or something, and come back in, like, an hour?

Steffy: You would leave me alone with her?

Well, I hope so. I'm trusting you with her life. I'm trusting you to raise her into the kind of woman that you are.

Steffy: Thank you.

No, thank you.

Let me guess -- you need another week.

Reese: No. I've got your money.

All of it?

Reese: $50,000, but I'll have the rest soon.

[ Scoffs ] Too late.

Reese: What do you mean, too late? Hey! Hello?

[ Indistinct conversation ]

I should have zigged

instead of zagged

'cause I threw away

all we had

Tiffany: Now it's clear

[ Cellphone rings ]

Zoe: Oh! I just got to --

Emma: Okay, no problem.

Zoe: Dad?

Reese: Where -- where are you?

Zoe: At the audition. Remember? I told you about the tv show.

Reese: Text me your address. You shouldn't be alone.

Zoe: It's just an audition. Dad?

Liam: So, I got here as quickly as I could.

Steffy: Thank you.

Liam: I mean, you said that there's something for me to see?

Steffy: Something's happening. At least, I hope it is.

Liam: To kelly?

Steffy: Liam, I told you, she's fine. Nothing to worry about.

Liam: Yeah. No, I know.

Steffy: It's only natural after what happened with beth. But I promise you... this is something so good for our daughter, something that's gonna add joy and add meaning.

Liam: Joy is good. Joy is good. Meaning, too. Show me.

[ Laughter ]

[ Indistinct conversation ]

[ Dog barking ]

I should have zigged

instead of zagged

'cause I threw away

all we had

Tiffany: And now it's clear

Emma: That you're not here

Zoe: So I fantasize

To see your eyes

I should have zigged

I should have zigged

Instead of zagged

'cause I threw away

all we had

Zoe: I feel like we might have messed up just a bit on that ending. Do you mind if we just start from the top?

Emma: Yeah, let's do it.

Tiffany: I, 2, 3.

I should have zigged

instead of zagged

'cause I threw away

all we had

Tiffany: And now it's clear

Emma: That you're not here

Zoe: So I fantasize

To see your eyes

Steffy: I don't think it's much of a surprise. I've been talking about it a lot lately.

Liam: Right, I -- [ Sighs ] I know, I guess I should have figured that's what you were, um... I've had a lot of my mind.

Steffy: I understand.

Liam: So, uh -- so you're gonna do it, huh? You're gonna go forward with the adoption?

Steffy: I want to. Very much. But I'd like you to meet her first.

Liam: Steffy, look at you. You're in love with her already. I can see it in your eyes, your body language -- I mean, you are her mother. You don't need my approval.

Steffy: I can't help it. Part of me wants you to look at her and tell me you see it, too.

Liam: See what?

Steffy: That she's really meant to be kelly's sister.

Liam: [ Sighs ] Oh, yeah. Um... well, thank you for including me. So, what, is there, like, a photograph? You wanted to show me a picture?

Steffy: [ Chuckles ] It's better than a picture. She's here.

Liam: What? She's here?

Steffy: Yeah. Yeah. She's -- she's sleeping in kelly's room. Would you like to meet her?

Liam: Yeah. Yes. Yes.

Steffy: Okay.

Liam: [ Sighs ]

[ Exhales sharply ]

Steffy: This is liam.

Liam: Oh, my god.

Steffy: This is kelly's daddy. He's a very good man. I think you're gonna like him.

Liam: You were right about her. She's -- she's beautiful. God, she even -- she even looks a little like kelly.

Steffy: I know, right? There's definitely a resemblance. It's not a stretch to believe that they could be sisters.

Liam: Sisters. Yeah.

Steffy: Would you like to hold her?

Liam: Yes, please.

Steffy: There you go. Go on. There.

Liam: [ Gasping ] Oh, man...

Steffy: Is it -- is too much?

Liam: No. Nope. No. I'm good.

Steffy: Is it too soon? I don't want to cause you any pain, or anything.

Liam: No, I'm okay. I'm good. I'm -- [ Laughs ] I'm good, I just -- like, looking at her and... and feeling her... I mean, it makes me miss beth, you know, but there'S...

[ Gasping ] There's something more. It's like... it's like she belongs here. It's like she belongs to you... and to kelly and... maybe even to me. Steffy... thank you. Thank you for bringing this child into our lives.
