Episode #8045 ~ Sally and Wyatt share a tender moment while they role-play how to negotiate with Bill; Hope makes a grand gesture that sends Liam and Steffy reeling.
Provided By SuzanneSteffy: Hope, please listen to me.
Hope: No, I can'T. I can't live with the knowledge that I'm keeping liam from your children.
Steffy: Hope, you're a woman of substance. For years, yeah, i underestimated you. We were young. And I was selfish.
Steffy: Listen, the one thing I had to learn the hard way -- when you're hurt and when you're willing to do everything to make it stop, you need to force yourself to sit with it instead. The surest way to a catastrophe is to do something drastic to stop the pain. That's why I'm alone. It cost me my marriage. But that doesn't have to happen to you.
Liam: I'm sorry, I don't even -- I don't know even know why I said that.
Bill: No, wait, wait. Liam -- liam, come on, I mean, you can't drop a bomb on me like that and not flesh it out. Liam, please.
Liam: What am I doing -- no, I can't talk to you about this.
Bill: Liam! Son! I get it. I do. But if steffy, the mother of your child, my grandchild, is going to be a forbidden topic of conversation for us, the only thing we're ever gonna talk about is the freakin' weather! Look, I -- I am painfully aware of why you and steffy aren't together. But if what you're saying is that hope, your wife, is saying that's a mistake that needs to be corrected... do you? Is that what you want?
Sally: Spectra is rising from the ashes, all thanks to you.
Wyatt: [ Chuckles ] Well, there are still negotiations to be had, like... what if dad wants to call it something stupid, like "spenstra," you know? He's gonna try and put his name in there, or something.
Sally: Yeah, okay, well, if I'm starting from a "yes," i think I can pretty much negotiate anything.
Wyatt: True. True.
Sally: No one has ever stood up for me the way that you have.
Wyatt: Well, to be fair, my brother tried.
Sally: Yeah, but that was different.
Wyatt: Why, because we didn't get blown up?
Sally: Hey! Don't laugh!
Wyatt: I just --
Sally: That can really ruin your day.
Wyatt: Yeah. Yeah.
Sally: And I thought it ruined my life. But then there was you.
[ Chuckles ]
Sally: So your father must really want you back...
Wyatt: [ Chuckles ]
Sally: If he wants to take us on as a package deal.
Wyatt: Well, I think being in competition with ridge forrester also appeals to him.
Sally: So, when are we gonna tell steffy?
Wyatt: No. No, no. We need to make sure that this arrange is signed, sealed, and delivered.
Sally: Okay, but what if he tells her first?
Wyatt: No. He won't do that. Trust me, he needs to keep his distance, otherwise, he's gonna be radioactive all over again, and he knows it. I do believe, though, he's done with this mid-life crisis thing. He wants to be a family man again. The only thing missing is... the family he exploded.
Donna: Hey. My turn to go back to work.
Katie: Yeah, uh, will's home?
Donna: Yeah, he's outside playing a game I don't understand with a toy I can't identify.
Katie: That sounds about right. Anyone call?
Donna: Expecting a call, from thorne, maybe?
Katie: Uh, no, I don't think I'm gonna be hearing from him for a while.
Donna: Oh, so from bill, then?
Katie: Bill doesn't call. He barges in.
Bill: All right, fine. Your wife wants to leave you and you don't want to talk to me about it.
Liam: No, you see? You see how you are? I never said that.
Bill: Liam, your wife wants you to be with somebody else. Is that really so different?
Liam: [ Sighs ] You have never understood hope.
Bill: Well, she's a different hope. And I'm a different me. But I know that she has loved you steadfastly for years. Somehow, that's changed?
Hope: You didn't lose liam. I mean, not really, and he still loves you, steffy.
Steffy: Liam and I didn't come to this arrangement on our own. We set goals, we made decisions.
Hope: And that was when we all still believed that he was having a child with me, and now that's never gonna happen.
Steffy: You don't know what the future holds.
Hope: No! No, I can'T. I can't go through another pregnancy again. I can't lose another child.
Steffy: Don't say that.
Hope: I don't even know why I'm married anymore. I mean, you're more his wife than I am at this point.
Steffy: Hope, what are you talking about? You have the man. You have the ring.
Hope: And you have his children.
Steffy: Child. Liam has no relation to phoebe.
Hope: And that could change once you're back together. And I know, you don't have to say it, it's sweet of you not to, but... I know you want the same thing, too. What about this guy?
Sally: Are you thinking or frowning?
Wyatt: Uh, thinking. That requires every muscle above my neck.
Sally: Thinking about... the correct answer would be me.
Wyatt: You -- you, yeah. Mm-hmm. Yeah.
Wyatt: You know how cows have stomachs? Well, I have two brains, and one of them is always thinking about you.
Sally: That's very smooth.
Wyatt: [ Laughs ] And the other one is thinking about my brother.
Sally: Liam? Why?
>>Wyatt: Well, if my dad is serious about putting the family back together, liam can bargain just like I did.
Sally: Okay, but what does bill have, or what can bill do that liam would want?
Wyatt: Good question. That's why I'm frowning. I mean, liam doesn't care about the money, and I doubt that he cares about the job.
Sally: Yeah, but I think he does care about having a father.
Wyatt: You know him better than I thought. I mean, he's already made amends with will, so there's no bargaining needed. But there's just one more family member who he stomped on mercilessly, and her name's not even spencer anymore.
Donna: Okie dokie, I'm heading back to forrester.
Katie: I hope pam's in a good mood.
Donna: Oh, no, she doesn't really give me grief about my hurs. It's nice to be able to come and -- well, this isn't really my home.
Katie: It is your home. You can stay here as long as you want.
Donna: I'm checking the real estate listings every day.
Katie: Why, you want your privacy, is that it?
Donna: Mm, you know, what if, uh, somebody else moves in?
Katie: Somebody like who?
Donna: Oh, I don't know... somebody you and will both know.
Katie: Well, I can't imagine who that somebody would be, since I'm lavishing all my attention on my son.
Donna: Will does seem pretty happy these days.
Katie: Yeah, he is.
Donna: Especially when bill's around.
Katie: [ Sighs ]
Donna: Imagine how happy he'd be if his father were here every day. Bye.
[ Door closes ]
Liam: I think that hope feels so alone that she's putting up fences. I think that's what happening. I mean, we all lost a family member that day, but it was different for hope, you know? She really knew beth. She was with beth every hour of every day.
Bill: She thinks that nobody can understand.
Liam: Yeah, it's like her whole future just collapsed around her, and the only thing that's making her feel better is time with the little ones, especially phoebe, and... that's a problem because it's like hope is -- is transferring to phoebe all the love she doesn't get to give beth now.
Bill: That child already has a mother in steffy. What she needs is a father.
Liam: You -- you got to let that be, dad.
Bill: Liam. [ Chuckles ] I'm not trying to solve this for you. I mean, I can't even solve what happened between us. I can just tell you that I love you and ask you a question -- are you so sure that hope's solution isn't the right one?
Steffy: You may have the best of intentions, but you're venturing into decisions that aren't really up to you.
Hope: That's because you and liam are too worried and concerned about me to admit that this situation is wrong.
Steffy: You didn't marry liam for beth. You married him because you love him. Let this tragedy bring you closer together. Hope, he's grieving, too. Don't desert him now.
Katie: Hi. I'm surprised to see you.
Bill: Yeah, uh, well, you know me, I have a tendency to forget to call.
Katie: I do know that, um, but come on in.
Bill: Thanks. I'm unwelcome most places. Not that I don't know why. Anyway, uh, I wanted to -- talk to you about my son.
Katie: Uh, he's outside.
Bill: Oh, not -- not will. I'm talking about one of my other sons. The one you and I had a little trouble with.
Katie: Mm, yeah. I asked wyatt to come back to spencer.
Katie: Wow, well, um... I guess don't be disappointed if he's happy where he is at forrester.
Bill: Oh, no, no, no. He's accepted to come back.
Katie: Has he told sally? Because I think they liked working under the same roof.
Bill: Well, it looks like that's going to continue. I agreed to underwrite a reboot of spectra fashions under the spencer umbrella.
Bill: Well, that was the right thing to do, wasn't it?
Katie: Yes! Yes, it was. I can't believe you even have to ask that.
Bill: I don'T. I just wanted to brag to somebody, and who else would care?
Wyatt: All right. Let's have a list of your demands.
Sally: Could we call it a proposal?
Wyatt: Good. Whatever. Hand me the document. Wait, hold on. Mm!
[ Clears throat ]
[ Chuckles ] Why don't you, uh, pour us a drink, will you? No! What are you doing? Don't do that! Don't fall for that! He could drink a fleet of sailors under the table, okay? You don't even know what you're signing yet.
Sally: Why don't we celebrate after, bill?
Wyatt: Nice! Perfect. I love that, all right? Remember, his negotiation strategy is to make you feel unimportant, less than, so you lower your expectations. All right. [ Clears throat ] What is this, a typo? $20 million in seed money?
Sally: I would never ask for that much money. Really, he would laugh me out of the office.
Wyatt: Sally! Do not let him get off easy. Okay? He -- he owes you. He knows he's wrong. So ask him for anything you want. Demand it. What?
Sally: Well, what I really want is to tell you how much you mean to me. And not just because you're the son of a gazillionaire.
Wyatt: Right. Yeah. I mean, you know, you've seen one, you've seen 'em all.
Sally: And not because you're sweet and kind and funny.
Wyatt: [ Chuckles ]
Sally: But because you get me. In my life, that's really rare because I know I'm not easy. All I ever wanted was for spectra fashions to rise again. And now that you're saying that you can do that for me, I... realize when I wasn't looking that something else took my very top priority. You.
Hope: Why can't you see how important this is?
Steffy: Hope, you can redesign your life, not mine.
Hope: You said I'd be deserting liam, but no! I am trying to give him a way out of this cold, dark place that we've been living in ever since beth died. I am trying to give him his daughter back, and I'm trying to give phoebe a father, too!
Steffy: My children aren't yours to give.
Hope: I'm the only one being honest here. You planned a life with liam, so why shouldn't one of us have the family that we wanted? I know you want him, steffy, and it's okay, you can say it. It doesn't hurt me anymore.
[ Knocks on door ]
Steffy: It's open!
Hope: I'm sure you have a key, you should use it. This is your home.
Sally: I am not good at being in debt.
Sally: Just goes to show you that practice does not make perfect.
Wyatt: Who do you owe money to? I'm really good with bill collectors.
Sally: You. But I can't pay you back with dollars.
Wyatt: Will you stop? I -- you don't have to pay me back for anything.
Sally: You just did something really heroic for me. It is my turn to make all of your dreams come true.
Wyatt: I -- I don't really dream much.
Sally: It's really unfortunate.
Wyatt: I mean, I can. I mean, I dream now. I mean, I dream things. I'll dream whatever you want --
Sally: Shut up.
Wyatt: Okay. Mm-hmm.
Bill: She's probably gonna want to call "spectra," or something.
Katie: Of course she is! That's the point. The spencers aren't the only ones that take pride in their family name.
Bill: Hey, pal.
Will: I knew that was your car.
Bill: Yeah, what's up?
Will: I'm so glad you're here. Look at this.
Bill: What do you got?
Will: $0.08 interest. Some "savings account."
Bill: Oh, yeah, those hidden costs will kill you. But, you know what, listen, this is just kind of fun money for you. You don't have to worry about it. You're rich.
Will: How do you figure?
Bill: Uh, well, because what's mine is yours, and I'm as rich as it gets.
Katie: [ Sighs ]
Will: Shouldn't I have my own debit card?
Bill: All right, slow your roll there, pal. All in good time, all in good time.
Katie: What is it?
Will: You came to see mom?
Bill: Well, I came to see everyone who lives here.
Will: Are you two friends again?
Bill: What do you mean? When were we not friends?
Katie: Well, you know, will, um, your father and I are both, um, passionate, vocal people, and we tend to speak our minds, and we sometimes do that loudly, but that'S... that's not a bad thing.
Bill: Will, uh, your mom is my superhero.
Katie: [ Chuckles ]
Bill: Because she gave me you. And I will always be grateful to her for that. And, listen, uh, you know, both of us, we always want what's best for you.
Will: You could just ask me.
Bill: Oh! All right, well, uh, I'll bite. What do you think's best for you?
Liam: Hope, we just talked about this.
Hope: But were you listening?
Liam: Yes! And I get it. I know where you're coming from, a place of strength and selflessness, but... now is not the time for you to be making decisions about the rest of your life, let alone mine.
Hope: So when will it be, then? When the girls are 5, 10? When they're already grown up without you?
Steffy: You and both know kelly will never be without liam.
Hope: No, just once or twice week.
Liam: Okay, okay.
Hope: No! No! Listen! Listen to me! I swear to you, I'm thinking clearly, and, baby, I know that you lost a child, but I'm trying to get you to see that there is a child in there right now who needs you. And I didn't have my father. That was an absence I carried with me my entire life, and please -- please don't do that to phoebe.
Liam: I didn't even meet my dad until I was a grown man. But I promise you, those are not the cards phoebe was dealt. I will -- I will treat her like she's my own. Right now, though, you and I are more important.
Hope: I can't accept that. I've already failed beth, I'm not about to do that to kelly and phoebe.
Liam: What are you -- that -- that is just factually not true, hope! Dr. Buckingham said so, dr. Phillips said so...
Hope: No, I know what I feel! I know that if I had stayed awake for the birth of our daughter that she would be in there right now with kelly taking a nap! But she's not. That's not what happened. So all of the love and caring and support and protection that I wanted to give to our beth, i don't want it to go to waste. I want it to go to kelly and phoebe. And that means two parents raising them together. I mean, look! Look at how happy you two can be together. That doesn't have to be a picture of the past, it can be a snapshot of the future that you two can share together.
Liam: No, no, no, no, no. No, we're not going there today. No. No way.
Hope: No! No! I am not going to be responsible for keeping a family apart. Remember the vows you made each other. Make the life that you promised.
