Hope: You really didn't have to do this for us.
Pam: Of course I did. I made your favorite brownies, hope. Vegan for you, liam.
Liam: Oh! Thanks, pam.
Brooke: Everyone wanted to let you know how much you've been missed.
Quinn: And how sorry we are.
Emma: The whole team signed the card.
Eric: Coming back to work is a big step. We wanted it to be as welcoming as possible.
Quinn: You have a strong support system here.
Taylor: You've been holding her since you walked in the door.
Ridge: Why don't you tell your grandma to just take it easy and wait her turn?
Steffy: We have enough grandbabies to go around.
[ Phoebe cries ]
Ridge: [ Shushing ]
Taylor: Aw, yes.
Ridge: Both these guys are pretty special, aren't they?
Steffy: [ Sighs ] They are, aren't they?
Ridge: You know I wasn't crazy about this whole adoption thing, but look how amazing this is. It's all because of you. You and your contact.
[ Phoebe fussing ] What are you telling me? What are you telling me? What is it? What are you telling me? It's okay.
Dorian: Hey, xander.
Xander: Hey, dorian. Thank you. How'd you like your first photo shoot, huh?
Dorian: It was great. Thanks for the tips.
Xander: Yeah, yeah. Any time.
Dorian: I really hope they like what they got.
Xander: I'm sure they did. I'll, uh -- I'll text you when i hear something.
Dorian: Cool. Thanks again, man.
Xander: Yeah. See ya.
Zoe: [ Sighs ] I just realized that we were supposed to give a list of all the pieces that we used to quinn.
Xander: I, uh -- I think she's upstairs with hope and liam.
Zoe: Right. They are back.
Zoe: How are they doing?
Xander: Losing a baby? I can't imagine.
Zoe: I know it's not the same, but this did have a big impact on my dad, too.
Xander: Is that why he went back to london?
Zoe: Well, that's part of it, I'm sure. You know, he wasn't the same after. Though I do think that there was something else going on even before that. He just wasn't telling me what it was. Now [Sighs] I hope that I can find some answers for myself.
Xander: Your dad gave you his key?
Zoe: Not exactly. The hospital called. They said that he left a few things in his locker, and they were just gonna send them to his address on file. But I said I'd pick them up.
Zoe: Yeah, to be honest, I'm just really worried about him, xander. Taking off the way he did, I don't know. I'm just hoping that he left something behind at his flat that could just tell me what's been going on with him.
Taylor: Honey, if you want to go lie down, we can watch the girls for you.
[ Kelly babbling ]
Steffy: Ah, I appreciate the offer. But every moment with them is a blessing. Especially now. After everything hope and liam are going through.
Hope: You really are too kind.
Quinn: Nonsense. We wanted to rally for you.
Emma: Everyone on the team is really excited to see you.
Liam: You know, I think, um -- I think getting back to work will be good.
Eric: You two have given so much to this company. I think it's really important that forrester continue to be a place where you can feel supported and inspired. You can jump right in with two feet or you can take your time. Whatever you like. Just remember that it's a place where you're surrounded by people who want only the best for you. You, young lady, have a very special place in our hearts. Your line has literally provided hope for so many people. It's time for some of that hope to come back to you.
Xander: Thank you, greg. Appreciate it. Hi.
Zoe: Hey. You know, my dad was deeply affected by the loss of hope's child. I'm -- I'm really not denying that.
Xander: But you don't think that's the whole story.
Zoe: Well, I'm not surprised that he took it so hard, because he's always genuinely cared for the patients and the babies that he's delivered. It's actually one thing I really love about him. But I do think that there was something else going on.
Xander: Yeah, it was kind of strange that he didn't want you to know about where he was staying.
Zoe: Well, he did say that it was temporary. But that doesn't really explain why he had to keep it a secret.
Xander: Well, if he went back to london, it's not even his anymore, right?
Zoe: There's actually a few months left on the lease.
Xander: What, he couldn't get out of it?
Zoe: I don't even think he tried. It's just still there.
Xander: Why would he want to keep it?
Zoe: Well, there's only one way to find out.
Xander: [ Sighs ] It's an empty flat, zoe.
Zoe: Yeah, but maybe there's something he left behind there. He kept this place a secret for a reason. He's hiding something, xander. And I'm to find out what it is.
Steffy: The first time I held phoebe, I just knew. I knew she was gonna be kelly's little sister.
Taylor: Yep. It was love at first sight.
Ridge: I have to admit, I felt that way, too.
Steffy: You know, I'm not one to talk about fate or destiny, but I really don't know how else to explain it. Obviously I didn't say anything like that when hope and liam were here.
Ridge: How'd that go?
Steffy: You know. [ Sighs ] It was emotional. Especially for hope. But after all the pain and the loss, I-I think it was good for her. Phoebe seemed really comfortable in her arms. And if she's up for it, I think hope could play a really important part in phoebe's life.
[ Cellphone chimes ]
Brooke: Wow. You being here has really caused a buzz around the office.
Emma: People want to know when they can stop by and say hi.
Pam: Yeah, and don't be surprised if your loyal buyers start calling, too.
Quinn: That's not the only thing that people have been talking about.
Eric: Yeah. Word has gotten out about steffy's adoption.
Liam: Ye-- um... yeah, well, that's fine. I mean, that's -- you know, it's exciting news, so...
Hope: It's -- it's all right. We can talk about it.
Liam: [ Clears throat ]
Hope: Phoebe is a beautiful baby.
Brooke: Hope has already been there to see her.
Eric: That was very brave of you.
Hope: Well, I mean, steffy's really happy. As she should be. I mean, phoebe is -- is like a little angel. And, you know, she's gonna have an incredible life in this family, and that is something worth talking about and celebrating, and I don't want anyone to hold back on my account. Phoebe deserves as much love as she can get. I mean, her smile is -- it's like a ray of sunshine. She will bring a lot of light around here, just like... our beth would have done, so...
to most, he's
Eric: Quinn and I want to commend you on coming back to work so soon.
Quinn: But if you needed more time, we would have understood.
Liam: You know, I think, um, we're ready.
Hope: Yeah. Getting out of the house, back into a routine, back to my line...
Eric: Good. I want to talk to you about that. Ridge and I have been talking about hope for the future. Um... your absence has made a few things more clear to us.
Hope: Well, he hasn't mentioned anything to me.
Eric: He wanted to wait until you were back in the office.
Hope: Okay. [ Sighs ]
Eric: Well, it may not be right, the timing, or it might be the perfect time. I don't know. But we want to bring back hope for the future, get it all revved up again.
Hope: Wait, what?
Quinn: It wouldn't just benefit you. It -- it would benefit the whole company.
Hope: But the allocations and --
Eric: No, we're gonna, uh -- we're gonna increase the budget, and we'll, uh... we'll put additional resources towards your next collection. What do you say?
Hope: Mom -- mom, did you know about this?
Brooke: [ Sighs ] I didn't want you to feel any pressure to rush back.
Liam: I mean, ridge has been reaching out to you a lot lately. It makes sense.
Brooke: Yes. He loves you very much, and he respects your vision and your strength.
Eric: And your line brings an energy and a spirit to the company that we absolutely need.
Hope: [ Exhales ] I-I -- I don't know what to say. Heh...
Eric: Look, we want to do everything we possibly can to help you move forward, to get better with all this. And if -- if throwing yourself back into work is what you need, we'll give you as much work as you can possibly stand.
Liam: [ Chuckles ]
Eric: But if you want to relax with it, take your time, we can do that, too.
Quinn: Mm-hmm. We'll follow your lead.
Brooke: And the important thing for you to know is that we're all here for you, to help you get through this difficult time.
Ridge: I didn't want to say anything, but part of me thought this whole idea was a little crazy.
Steffy: Okay. Thank you for keeping that to yourself.
Ridge: You know what I mean. Adopting a baby so soon after you had kelly? It just seemed... a bit of a challenge.
Taylor: Since when has our daughter ever shied away from one of those?
Steffy: Dad has a point, though. I did have a lot on my plate. And if this opportunity hadn't come up, I don't know if I would have gone through with it. But the moment I held phoebe, I knew. I knew I wasn't turning back. And I tried not to get too attached because I didn't know if the birth mother was gonna change her mind. But I didn't have a single doubt in mine. I knew that little angel was mine. I knew it.
Ridge: I was just surprised the adoption went through so quickly.
Steffy: Oh, well, I was already in the process. Mom helped me with that. And I can't thank you enough. I'll be forever grateful to you and to your contact. And to the birth mother who brought this beautiful baby into our lives.
Zoe: Hello? What were you hiding?
[ Sighs ]
[ Lock clicks ] Who are you?
Flo: Who are you?
Flo: What are you doing in my apartment?
Zoe: Your apartment?
Flo: I'm -- I'm calling the cops.
Zoe: Okay, no, this is my father's flat, so you need to put the phone down and tell me what you're doing here.
Flo: You must be zoe. Reese's daughter?
Zoe: You know my dad?
Flo: We're old friends. Does he know that you're here right now?
Zoe: Look, are you guys -- what? Are you just subletting or are you living together?
Flo: If you have questions, you should probably ask him.
Zoe: Yeah, well, he wouldn't even give me the address. And now I find out that he's been living with someone. Listen, zoe, if you're looking for your dad, he's not here. He went back to london.
Zoe: And I know that, okay? He told me before he was leaving. But he didn't tell me about you. So I'm gonna ask you again -- who are you and what are you doing here? And how are you even involved with my father?
Ridge: Just to be clear, I'm not questioning this adoption or anything about it.
Steffy: Carter took care of everything. It was all completely aboveboard.
Ridge: I know that. I just -- I'm curious about the birth mother. I didn't get to meet her. You did and you did. I just, um... kind of wondered where your contact even met this lady.
[ Baby cries on monitor ]
Steffy: Oh, it's phoebe. She's still getting used to the new home.
Ridge: I'm not being judgmental.
Taylor: I know.
Ridge: Phoebe's not the only one who has to adjust to things.
Taylor: I know what you're thinking. I feel the same way. It's a shame that steffy is having to do this on her own.
Ridge: She has you.
Taylor: Yeah. But liam should be here with her.
Steffy: Thank goodness kelly can sleep through almost anything.
Taylor: Uh, that was your sister. You were the fussy one.
Steffy: I was not fussy. Neither is phoebe. She's just acclimating.
Ridge: Both of you guys are doing a great job with her.
Steffy: I hope she knows how much I love her.
Taylor: Oh, honey, of course she does.
Steffy: I want her to feel safe and cared for. I may not be her biological mother, but we're family. I wanted her as much as any mother could want a child. Nobody could love her more. One heartbeat. That's all it took, and I fell in love with her. The moment I held her...
[ Chuckles ] ...I knew that you belonged with me. And with kelly.
[ Sighs ]
Hope: [ Inhales deeply ]
[ Sighs ] I don't know where to start.
Liam: I mean, it's kind of exciting, isn't it?
Hope: Yeah, it's exactly what I wanted -- renewed support for my line.
Brooke: Sweetheart, if you're not ready for this --
Hope: No. No, it's not that, mom. It's just... the last time I was in this office, I was pregnant with beth, and I was planning our weekend getaway to catalina island, and we had everything to look forward to.
[ Sighs ] Gosh! And I remember she was moving a lot that day. It was like she was just as excited as -- as I was. And [Gasps] We had our whole future ahead of us. And I wasn't worried about anything. You know, I was... carefree and happy. And now... now I don't know when this sadness will disappear.
Liam: Well, you know, going back to work, it's not gonna make the sadness disappear. But it could turn down the volume a little bit.
Brooke: You have to listen to yourself. If it's too much, you'll know. Just trust your instincts.
Liam: Yeah. Like you did with -- with phoebe and steffy. Remember?
Hope: Well, I mean, going over there was hard, too.
[ Scoffs ] You know, I sat in that driveway for what felt like an eternity? I didn't know if I could -- if I could...
Liam: But you did. You did go in. And you were glad you did, weren't you?
Hope: Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, it was the right thing to do. A-and I knew the instant I saw steffy holding phoebe, and then... when she put her in my arms -- oh, gosh!
Brooke: Oh, honey. I'm sorry. Maybe I shouldn't have suggested --
Hope: Oh, no. No. It was a beautiful thing. Really. And I am happy for steffy and kelly. And, liam, this is a blessing for your family. It's just that... I can't forget that beth was supposed to be kelly's little sister, and now that steffy is making all these little -- all these plans for her little girl, and we're -- we're not, um... phoebe is precious, and she's sweet, but every second I held her, I couldn't, um... I couldn't stop thinking about beth, and how we lost our baby.
