Brooke: Honey [Sighs] Talk to me.
Hope: I'm okay, mom.
Ridge: Maybe I should have waited to tell her, you know?
Hope: No. No, it's fine. Steffy has adopted a little girl, and now kelly has a new little sister. Phoebe. I'm happy for them. Liam is, too.
Brooke: That was very sweet of you, to insist that he go over there and be there with his daughter and her new sister.
Hope: Mom, liam had a family with steffy even before I got pregnant with beth, so...
[ Inhales sharply ] Liam should be there. To welcome phoebe to her new home and her new family.
Steffy: Little phoebe's settled right into your arms.
Liam: [ Chuckles ] It's funny. I al-- I already see a resemblance. I don't mean a physical resemblance, I just... her eyes. Her eyes are so... the way that she looks at me reminds me of how kelly looked at me when I first held her, you know? I know I'm being silly. I-I -- I just...
Steffy: No, no. You're not being silly. You're being a dad. Liam, I-I meant what I said. Yes, I've adopted phoebe on my own. But she is and always will be your daughter.
Reese: So, everything went as planned signing the adoption paperwork?
Flo: It went off without a hitch. I was a little nervous -- or, actually, very nervous, given everything at stake.
Reese: But you covered, though, right? No red flags?
Flo: I did, yes. It's done. You're in the clear. Or at least I assume that you are?
Reese: Yeah. Paid off my debt. Every last cent. My daughter is finally safe.
Flo: I'm glad. I know how much zoe means to you.
Reese: Everything I did, I did for her. To keep her out of harm's way. I would have never, ever crossed the lines I did -- morally or ethically -- otherwise.
Flo: I know. I'm happy for you. But you don't -- you don't seem too happy for you.
Flo: Is that what I think it is?
Reese: Like I said [Sighs] I paid off all my debts with $50,000 to spare.
Flo: Should I count it? I'm kidding, reese. I trust you.
Reese: Look, I'm really sorry that I got you involved in all this. But those thugs were going to do something really horrible to my daughter if I didn't come up with the money.
Flo: Hey. Don't, okay? I am far from perfect myself. We've all done things. I mean, admittedly nothing quite like this, but... it's -- it's over now. Life goes on. Better for some than others. $50,000 to give one woman a child while robbing another of her baby.
Brooke: Honey, we all know what you've been through, and how much you're still going through. But if you're just saying that you're okay with liam being over at steffy's with their daughter and the new baby, then --
Ridge: We would all understand. Steffy most of all. And, yes, she wanted that baby, but the timing is...
[ Sighs ] It -- it just hasn't -- hasn't been a long time s--
Hope: You can say it, ridge. Since beth was taken from us.
Ridge: You're still healing. So is liam.
Hope: Yeah, exactly. And holding a new little girl in his arms will -- no child will ever replace beth for us. I'm just acknowledging what is. Beth is gone. And, sure, on some level, knowing that steffy has a baby girl and I don't have mine, it hurts. But I won't deny their family this once-in-a-lifetime moment.
Steffy: I thought I heard kelly, but she's still in dreamland.
Liam: Little does she know her life is about to change in a big way.
Steffy: All of our lives are.
Liam: I can picture it now, kelly and phoebe just ganging up on us.
Steffy: Ganging up on you, you mean...
Liam: [ Chuckles ]
Steffy: ...And wrapping you around their fingers.
Liam: I know.
Steffy: From the moment I laid eyes on her, it just felt right.
Liam: That's 'cause it is right. I mean, kelly now has the -- the sister that you wanted her to have. And she's gonna grow up having that special connection that you had with yours.
Steffy: Mm-hmm. Best of all, this sweet little baby whose biological father wants nothing to do with her has a loving, caring father right here.
Reese: Okay. I love you, too, sweetheart. More than you know. All right. Bye.
Reese: Yeah. Checking up on her old man.
Flo: Sweet kid.
Reese: If I could take even the tiniest bit of credit... but, uh, you, uh -- you want to count that, make sure it's all there?
Flo: No, actually, what i really want to do is, I want to dump it all on the floor and roll around in it, naked.
Reese: [ Chuckles ]
Flo: But I'll try to restrain myself.
Flo: That's not true. What I just said. It's --
[ Sighs ] It just -- it makes it -- it makes it sound like it's, like, a good thing. But I just -- I can't help thinking, this kind of just feels like it's blood money. But I really do need the cash.
Reese: You take every last dollar. Go live your life and forget this happened. You helped me safeguard my daughter. And we still made sure that that little girl has a safe, happy home.
Hope: I wonder how it's going over at steffy'S. With the new baby.
Ridge: I'm sure steffy, uh, is doing the best for phoebe to settle in.
Hope: Well, how much do they know about the birth mother? I mean, does phoebe look like her, or...?
Ridge: I, uh... I don't know. I know steffy met her, but that'S...
Brooke: Why do you ask?
Hope: I just remember holding beth for the first time. Searching her face, trying to find a little bit of me or liam. And I was just wondering if she had her mother's eyes or -- I'm sorry. I don't -- I don't know why i brought that up. Uh... all that matters now is that steffy is her mother.
Brooke: [ Sighs ] Sweetheart... all these questions, and searching for answers... you know, maybe it would help if you go over there and meet phoebe.
Steffy: Phoebe and kelly are sleeping like -- liam?
Liam: [ Inhales ] Sorry. Did -- did she go down without a fuss?
Steffy: Yeah, yeah. I sang her a lullaby, and she was out. It's a big day for a little girl.
Liam: Yeah, it was.
Steffy: What will you tell her?
Steffy: Hope. She has to know you're here.
Liam: Oh, y-yeah. No, yeah, she's the one who encouraged me to come.
Liam: She, um -- she thought I should be here for kelly when we welcome her new sister into the family. I was -- when I was holding phoebe, I was -- you know, I was thinking about beth. And it's so strange. It's like... you know, I-I only got to hold her that once... my sweet little girl.
Steffy: I'm sorry, liam. Maybe this is too soon for you.
Liam: No, no -- oh, no. That's not what I was -- no. I -- heh... hope is right. I-I -- I should be here with kelly on phoebe's first day with her new family. And I'm -- and I'm glad I am.
Steffy: Phoebe will be, too. When she's old enough to understand. But you're dealing with a horrible loss, liam. Little beth --
Liam: Will always be in my heart. But, um... I can't -- I can't get her back. And now there's phoebe, and... when I look at phoebe, I-I -- I see joy. I see life. I see the future. And that -- and that's good. I don't want my sadness over beth to cloud what happened today. I mean, this -- this was a miracle. Phoebe is a miracle. She's such a gift to you and kelly.
Steffy: To you, too, liam.
Flo: You going somewhere?
Reese: Yes. London.
Flo: For how long? You're not coming back, are you? It's for the best.
Flo: [ Scoffs ] I don't think your daughter would agree with that.
Reese: Flo, you know me. You know my history. Trouble follows me. I don't want my actions to endanger my daughter again. I love zoe too damn much.
Flo: Okay. Well, then... what if I went with you? You know, I've never been to jolly old england. We could, uh -- we could travel together, you could play tour guide, we could spend some of that money. It'll be fun.
Reese: I thought you had bills to pay off?
Flo: You don't want me tagging along, do you?
Reese: What I want is for you to be happy. I want you to find a man who won't pull you down into his messiness like I have. Someone who will respect you and -- and be there for you in a way that I can'T. If you want to make a fresh start, pay off your debts, keep the apartment. I've got the lease for a while.
Flo: It's not gonna be the same around here without you. I'll probably die of boredom.
Reese: [ Chuckles ] You and I have gone through something powerful and life-changing together. We share a secret. A secret that will stay with us and only us forever. Flo, no one can ever know what happened. Especially not the baby's real mother.
Brooke: It's totally up to you, sweetheart. I'm not pushing anything. But if you do want to see baby phoebe --
Ridge: You don't think that maybe this is a little too soon?
Brooke: No. What do you think? Is it?
Hope: Honestly, I don't know. I mean, if I go over there today and meet steffy's little girl, yeah, it -- it might be too much for me. It might make me feel the loss of beth even more than I already do. But at the same time, I'm also aware of the fact that this is kelly's little sister. And prolonging it might just make it even harder when i finally do meet phoebe.
Ridge: Well, just -- just know that you don't have to rush any of this.
Brooke: Well, I agree. If you're not ready, honey, it's fine, really.
Hope: No. If it gets to be too much, I can just leave. I think I need to do this. I need to do it for myself. And I need to do it for beth.
Today is the day and it's gonna be great.
Ridge: For what it's worth, I think hope made the right choice.
Brooke: So do I. But I still can't help worrying.
Ridge: Of course you can'T. You're her mother. It's part of the territory.
Brooke: Like it's any easier for fathers?
Ridge: It's not. I mean, she is my daughter, in a way. And to see this happen to her, to have her heart ripped out like that... I don't -- I don't want that for anybody. I -- but maybe this -- this kid, maybe this little baby... will be a s-step away from this grief that she's feeling and towards healing. I would like that.
Brooke: I love how you care about my daughter. And that you're sensitive to her feelings. And I'm really impressed with hope, too. That even in her grief, she is showing her goodness by putting the children first.
Ridge: Beth is always gonna be part of their lives. It's never gonna change.
Liam: Well -- well, thank you for...including me.
Steffy: Liam, you're always welcome here. You know that.
Liam: Yeah, I do.
Steffy: You're already so wonderful with phoebe.
[ Knock on door ]
Hope: Is it okay?
Steffy: Y-y-yeah, of course it's okay. Come on in.
Hope: Um... I-I felt like I should stop by. I heard the news. I mean, it's so amazing. Heh.
Steffy: Yeah. I-it all happened so fast. I assumed adoption would take months. But then, out of the blue, it just -- it happened. I-I wouldn't have pursued it given the loss we're all dealing with --
Hope: I understand. A child, no matter the timing, is -- is an extraordinary gift.
[ Phoebe cries on monitor ] Is that...?
Steffy: It's -- it's phoebe. She just went down for a nap, but, uh... would you like to meet her?
Liam: Hey. I'm glad you came. Couldn't have been easy.
Steffy: Phoebe... this is your very pretty aunt hope.
Hope: She's beautiful. May I hold her?
Liam: Uh, are you -- are you...sure?
Hope: Yeah. . . .
