Steffy: Now you know what i meant when I told you about this baby. This bond I felt from the moment I saw her.
Liam: Now I know. You're so lucky, steffy. To have found her. She's gonna fit right into your family.
Steffy: [ Chuckles ] Our family. We may not be together anymore, but we're still a family. We made that promise to kelly.
[ Baby cries ] Aww. Oh!
Liam: How 'bout that? Yeah?
Steffy: That baby you're holding, this baby, technically she's my daughter, but she belongs to you, too. To all of us.
[ Baby coos ] Oh!
I should've zigged instead of zagged
I threw away all we had
Zoe: I'm sorry. God, are we actually doing this?
Emma: Ugh. Zoe, we're fine.
Tiffany: They don't want "fine." They want spectacular! Did you see the juggler that went in there earlier? He had a dozen knives. On fire. How are we supposed to compete?
Emma: Let's just have fun. We have our fashion careers to fall back on if this doesn't work out.
[ All chuckles ]
Zoe: Okay, that's true.
[ Girls giggling ]
[ Indistinct conversation ]
Together: I should've zigged instead of zagged
[ Girls singing ]
Oh! What the hell?!
Reese: Stay away from my daughter!
Pay up, and I will.
Reese: I told you I have the money.
You said you had some of it.
Reese: $50,000. Cash. Do you want it or not?
Pam: I've already made hope and liam three casseroles.
[ Chuckles ] You think maybe they'd like a cake?
Quinn: Oh, no, pam. That's a bit celebratory.
Pam: Oh. Yeah, I guess you're right.
[ Chuckles ] Hadn't thought of that. Oh! And, maya, I haven't even made anything for you yet.
Pam: Since, you know, the...
Maya: Uh, you can say it, pam. Since my divorce.
Pam: Yeah. Sorry. Uh... want me to bake you something?
Quinn: Again. Pam. Celebratory.
Maya: [ Chuckles ]
Pam: Oh... well, you know I didn't mean it that way, right?
Maya: It's -- it's fine.
Pam: [ Sighs ] I-I just don't know what to do. I feel so helpless. With everything that's going on around here.
Eric: Understandably. I feel that way, too.
Maya: I think we all do.
Eric: Sometimes there's really [Sighs] Nothing else to do but just be there.
Liam: God, the poor mom.
Liam: The -- the woman who gave birth to this little girl. I mean... I feel for her. It couldn't have been easy giving her up. I'm no-- I'm not judging her. I-I'm sure she had her reasons. But... after losing beth, I just...
Steffy: Yeah, I feel for her, too. But she's making the best decision for her daughter. It takes courage.
Liam: Definitely. You are so lucky, little girl. Your birth mom has no idea of the privileged future she gave you with steffy as your mom. And kelly by your side.
Eric: Let's make a point of stopping by and seeing them later.
Quinn: That's a good idea.
Maya: You may want to call before you do that. They've basically just been holed up in the cabin and, uh, I don't know that hope is ready for visitors yet.
Pam: I just -- I hate this feeling. Not knowing whether, you know, we should go over there because they might need to talk, or if that would just be totally the wrong thing. It's so hard to understand why something so terrible could happen to such good people.
Reese: Why don't you just leave her alone?
Either you pay the debt or she does.
Reese: I have $50,000. I'll have the rest of it soon.
Reese: I don't know! A few days. Maybe more. Just leave my daughter alone!
Well, I guess this is a start.
Reese: You tell your boss the rest is coming. And that when he gets it, I never want to see him or you ever again.
[ Kelly cries on monitor ]
Steffy: That little stinker. She wasn't down long enough. Maybe she'll fall back asleep.
Liam: Or we could just get her. I mean, I was -- I was kind of hoping she'd wake up while I was here. And we can put her back down again later.
Steffy: I'll be right back. You're fine?
Liam: Oh, I am -- I am more than fine.
[ Chuckles ] Yeah, we are. How old are you, little one? Three weeks? Four weeks? Are you older or younger than my beth? And what will your name be?
Steffy: Phoebe. I plan to name her after my sister.
Liam: Beautiful name for a beautiful girl.
Steffy: [ Sighs ]
Liam: Well, kelly, what you think? You ready to be a big sister? It's a lot of responsibility.
Steffy: Oh, I think she's ready.
Liam: Yeah, she definitely is.
Steffy: I think I am, too.
Liam: You are.
Steffy: Am I getting ahead of myself? I mean, I haven't even signed the papers yet. But it's happening. I feel it. I mean, just look at them together.
Liam: They're sisters.
Liam: They are.
Liam: I see your future. I see good things.
Liam: For you and your daughters.
Steffy: I see it, too.
[ Chuckles ] I switched to stimulant-free miralax for my constipation.
Eric: I suppose we're all asking ourselves why, aren't we?
Maya: How could we not? That baby would have been so loved. So cared for.
Quinn: It's not right.
Eric: No, it's not. It's not fair. But life isn't always fair, is it?
Maya: [ Sighs ]
Eric: So let's not ask why. We certainly shouldn't ask why in front of hope and liam. That's not something they need to hear right now.
Pam: No, I never would have asked why in front of them, eric. I-I just... I'm just struggling with what they do need from us. I-I don't know.
Eric: They need time. They need us. They need family. They need friends. They need... they need casseroles.
Maya: [ Chuckles ]
Eric: No, they do. If cooking is how you can show you love somebody, and how you want to help, then you do it. We can all help in our own way. That's what makes us a great family. We all play our part, especially in times of crisis. We're forresters. We all have a part to play. When it's time to rally, we damn well rally.
Liam: Even the way she sleeps.
Steffy: Phoebe? What do you mean?
Liam: Well, it just reminds me of -- of kelly when she was a newborn, you know?
Steffy: Yeah, I know. Maybe I should stop doing that.
Liam: Stop doing what?
Steffy: Calling her phoebe. Before it's official.
Liam: Well, is there any reason to think it won't happen?
Liam: I mean, you even said you -- you feel it, you know? You know it.
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, I do.
Liam: Well, I feel it, too. That kid -- that kid is here to stay.
Steffy: I hope so. I want that for kelly. The connection that I had growing up. That bond that twins have. And I -- I realize that they're not twins. Kelly's a few months older. But still. Did you see the way they fell asleep together?
Liam: Oh, yeah.
Steffy: This has to happen, liam. We are so close. My mom is actually taking care of the payment.
Liam: The down payment?
Liam: That's good. It means everybody's on board, right?
Steffy: Yeah. I'm just trying not to get too excited about it.
Liam: Why? We could all use a little excitement about now.
[ Scoffs ]
Steffy: I suppose that's true.
Liam: So, um... so your mom's pretty involved in this, right?
Steffy: I hope you're not about to say anything negative. My mom would never be a danger to those girls.
Liam: Oh, honestly, I wasn't even thinking about that. I was just curious because you said she has a colleague?
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, he's the one who introduced her to florence.
Steffy: The birth mother.
Steffy: Yeah, yeah. She's -- she's sweet. And down-to-earth. She just had some bad luck. She's not ready to handle the responsibilities of parenthood.
Liam: And what -- and what about the father?
Steffy: He's out of the picture. Doesn't want to be around.
Liam: God, that's crazy. I mean, I can't even... I can't even imagine feeling that way. I mean... but, hey, you know, she's gonna have plenty of father figures in her life. She's got your dad, your grandfather, your brother. Hopefully there's room in there for me.
Steffy: You're her sister's father. Of course there will be room. And there I go again, getting ahead of myself, already saying all this before it's a done deal. Am I crazy?
Liam: Yeah. Yeah, you are being crazy. You're -- you're crazy about this little girl. I mean, listen, you -- you wanted the best for kelly, and you went out, and you found the sister you thought she needed. A-and I -- I admit, I was skeptical. But you proved me wrong, and now I believe it, too. Now I want this just as much as you do. I want that little girl to have a life and a home with you.
Now you can make
any morning of the week
[ Poker game trills ]
Tiffany: At least we get to keep our day jobs.
Emma: Right. That's true.
Zoe: We did what we could.
Reese: Hey, superstar. How'd it go?
Zoe: Uh, we didn't get the callback.
Reese: Seriously? Well, they wouldn't know talent if it smacked them upside the head.
[ Girls chuckle ]
Emma: At least it was worth a shot.
Zoe: You know, you didn't need to come down here.
Reese: I -- I think I did. Heh...
Zoe: Uh, hey. You two just want to put a name down for a table? I'll meet you at the restaurant. I just want to catch up with my father.
Tiffany: Yeah, sure. No problem.
Zoe: Cool. Thanks.
Reese: Bye, girls.
Zoe: Okay, so, truth time.
Zoe: Why are you actually here?
Reese: Just to show support.
Zoe: No. Okay, there's more to this. You sounded really worried over the phone.
Reese: Uh, I wasn't worried. Just nervous for you. This -- this is a big deal.
Zoe: Well, you haven't exactly been yourself lately.
Reese: Well, that's about to change.
Zoe: Uh, why?
Reese: Just a feeling. A feeling that things are finally starting to go my way.
[ Cellphone chimes ]
Steffy: Oh, it's the mom. She's on her way back.
Liam: You are the mom.
Steffy: Liam. Thank you. I hope so. [ Sighs ] Until we sign that paperwork.
Steffy: [ Sighs ]
Liam: Well, um, I should -- I should probably go.
Steffy: No, no. Stay. She knows you're here meeting the baby.
Liam: I-I know, but I don't want to, like, get in the way and complicate things and... I'm still grieving. And I -- I don't know if that feeling of loss and loneliness ever goes away, but... but there's this now. This new life, this baby. And it's not beth. God, I wish I had beth. But... kelly has a sister. And that...feels good. I...feel...good. For the first time since -- thank you. Thank you for doing this.
Steffy: You're welcome. I know it's a little unconventional.
Liam: [ Scoffs ]
Steffy: People are gonna talk. I'm sure the press will have a field day. "Greedy ceo already has a baby, and oddly decides to adopt another."
Liam: I think it's gonna be more like, "fashion icon generously opens up her heart and her home to a child in need."
Steffy: Oh, if you were still working at spencer publications.
Liam: You are gonna get good feedback on this, trust me. Positive feedback.
Steffy: [ Sighs ] Positive or not, I want this. I really do. And what am I waiting for? The right man? A husband?
Liam: [ Scoffs ]
Steffy: By the time I'm ready for that, kelly will be older. And I want to give her the family that I envisioned. A sister close to her age. Yeah, I'll be doing it alone, but... I'm fine. We're fine. They'll grow up together.
Liam: Except... you're not alone. You may be single, but you're not alone. I mean, like I said, you know, you can think of me as a father figure if you like. I'll -- I'll be there.
Liam: For you and kelly and -- [ Sighs ] And if all goes according to plan, phoebe.
[ Baby cries on monitor ]
Liam: Uh, yeah. Looks like I'm gonna get to say goodbye, after all.
Steffy: Yeah. I'll go get her.
Liam: Actually... can I?
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, of course.
Liam: All right.
Steffy: [ Sighs ] She didn't wake kelly?
Steffy: What a good little sister.
Liam: I know. So thoughtful. I'm really glad you're here, phoebe. There's just... something about you. You belong in my daughter's life. In all of our lives.
