Episode #8051 ~ Things heat up between Zoe and Xander as they discuss how much better they are together than apart; Wyatt invites Flo, Hope and Liam to have dinner with him and Sally.

Provided By Suzanne

Sally: Is there anything she doesn't eat?

Wyatt: I -- pfft. I mean... nobody's pickier than liam, right?

Sally: You didn't ask her, did you?

Wyatt: No. But don't stress about it, okay? 'Cause flo goes with the flow, you know? That's always her motto.

Sally: Okay. So, one more steak and another couple chicken breasts?

Wyatt: Look, that should be perfect, okay? And I'm sorry again. I kind of threw you a curveball.

Sally: Hey, look, I'm glad she's coming over. You know everything about my past, and I barely know anything about yours.

Wyatt: Right. Well, don't ask her too much, 'cause nothing good can come of that.

Sally: Mm. Oh! And don't answer the phone, just in case hope and liam are thinking of backing out.

Wyatt: Good call.

Sally: Yeah.

Liam: You're not dressed.

Hope: I'm dressed. This is as far as I got. So, I was thinking --

Liam: No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. I know what you're gonna say, okay? You'd rather stay home. But think about it. Dinner with wyatt and sally -- that's gonna be easy, right? Because they understand. And, hell, my brother's a party all unto himself. We have to start living our lives again, hope. Don't you think?

Steffy: What is that?

Taylor: Technology. Make your own baby food.

Steffy: You know I can do that with a blender.

Taylor: Only after slicing and dicing and draining and boiling. This little gizmo does it all -- frees you up for other things.

Steffy: That's pretty cool. I like the sound of it.

Taylor: I know I haven't been around much to help, and once my practice starts going full-time...

Steffy: Mom, nobody's happier than I am that you're rebuilding your life.

Taylor: Well, that's because you gave me the space to do it. Thanks to you and those two beautiful little granddaughters of mine, I'm excited about the future again.

Steffy: [ Chuckles ]

Xander: Dinner smells amazing.

Zoe: Yeah? Pot roast. Very american...

[ British accent ] To go with our new personas.

Xander: Ah. That didn't sound very american.

Zoe: [ American accent ] Okay. Don't judge me. It hasn't been an easy week.

Xander: How can I help?

Zoe: Well, how 'bout just saying nice things to me... and being my boy toy?

Zoe: Okay. I hope you are hungry.

Xander: Have I ever not been?

Zoe: [ Chuckles ]

Xander: You know, I-I wish you'd just let me take you out.

Zoe: Oh, well, sometimes it's nice to be private.

Xander: Yeah, but... you need pampering way more than I do.

Zoe: [ Scoffs ] I deserve that. Is that what my horoscope says or something?

Xander: [ Chuckles ] No, it's just... you know, I can tell something's weighing on you. Is it your father? So, you've -- you've heard from him, then?

Zoe: No. And, uh, I don't want to.

Taylor: You just pour in a little water and set the timer, and then it'll steam and puree the sweet potatoes or the carrots or apples or -- ow! Ow!

Steffy: Mom, are you okay? Are you bleeding? Here.

Taylor: It's just enough to make me feel foolish.

Steffy: It's okay?

Taylor: Yeah, it's okay.

Steffy: Someone's a little rusty with a knife.

Taylor: Oh. Yeah. Well, it'S... been a little while. I haven't had a reason to be domestic until kelly and phoebe.

Steffy: Yeah. Seriously, are you really okay?

Taylor: I'm okay.

Steffy: Okay. Yeah, well, I-I know what you mean. I'm really good at running the company, but... nothing compares to doing all the little practical things for the girls.

Taylor: So, no regrets about the adoption?

Steffy: No. Kelly wasn't meant to be an only child. All phoebe did was complete us.

[ Knock on door ]

Wyatt: Hey! You found us. Come on in.

Flo: I did, yeah. I was -- I was pretty sure I was in the wrong place and some movie star's guard dog was gonna come running out at me.

Wyatt: [ Laughs ]

Flo: It's -- it's gorgeous. I feel like I'm in some cinderella fairy tale.

Wyatt: Speaking of gorgeous, you look amazing.

[ Clears throat ] Sally just, uh, took off to get some things, and she'll be right back.

Flo: And your brother and his wife?

Wyatt: Ah, they're not here yet. But I do have to warn you that they are so likable, it's sickening.

Flo: Oh. It must run in the family.

Wyatt: [ Chuckles ]

Hope: I just -- I hate having you see me like this, let alone other people.

Liam: Hope, you survived something devastating, and everybody who knows you knows that. Right? I mean, certainly, wyatt and sally do, and, listen, if we decide to leave early, they will understand that, too. Look at it this way. We will never find an easier re-entry into a social life than this one.

Hope: You're right. I have to try.

Liam: [ Smooches ]

Xander: This is insanely delicious.

Zoe: You've seriously never had pot roast? Well, it was always one of my father's favorites.

Xander: Okay. I didn't bring him up this time. You did.

Zoe: Right. So...how 'bout we just turn back the dial to five minutes ago?

Xander: Did something happen since he left, or before he left, to make you lose patience with him?

Zoe: It's just every time i think that he's going to be a better man and make better decisions, he just -- you know, he lets me down. He's gambled away his money and his principles, too. And when I think of some of the things he's done to cover his losses, it... horrifies me.

Wyatt: Ah. Here you go.

Flo: Thank you.

Wyatt: Yeah.

Flo: You know, it really makes me so happy to see how well you've done for yourself.

Wyatt: [ Chuckling ] Yeah. Well, I mean, some of it comes with being a spencer. I mean, my mom and I did well when I was wyatt fuller and everything, but land of opportunity, I guess. Um [Clears throat] But, I'm telling you, I-I think... that you should -- I don't know -- think about moving here.

Flo: I don't know. It's such a big city, and I-i didn't think I was gonna run in to anyone I knew, but...

Wyatt: Right.

Flo: ...Here we are.

Wyatt: Yeah. Well, two people, right?

Flo: Yeah.

Wyatt: I mean, one of them was that friend that you were gonna help.

Flo: Yeah, but nothing -- nothing good came of that one.

Wyatt: I mean, I can think of one good thing.

Flo: What?

Wyatt: You being here tonight. Hey, babe!

Sally: Hi.

Wyatt: I didn't -- I didn't know you were gonna get so much stuff.

Sally: Well, yeah. I was at the sre anyway.

Wyatt: Thanks.

Wyatt: Yeah. As you probably have guessed, this is my boo,spectra.

[ Chuckles ]

Sally: Hi.

Flo: It's so nice to meet you.

Sally: Yeah! Same here.

Flo: Thanks for having me. Um, is there anything that I can help with?

Sally: Yeah. Actually, you can tell me all of the adorable and possibly sinister things that wyatt did in high school.

Flo: [ Chuckles ] Well, um... he had a mohawk in 9th grade for like 10 minutes.

Wyatt: Uh [Chuckles] Yeah, it was a fauxhawk, thank you very much. Here.

Sally: That's it?

Flo: Some people just aren't really that secretive.

Sally: Well, true, I guess. Wyatt and I have that in common.

Wyatt: [ Chuckles ]

Flo: I used to be like that, too.

Sally: Now you're a woman of mystery?

Flo: No. Just more like a woman who... has a few things she won't willingly bring up.

Wyatt: [ Chuckles ] You know, I think I should, uh, maybe turn on the grill.

Sally: Uh, yeah, if you think we can count on your brother.

Wyatt: Well, don't even get me started on my brother's timing.

[ Knock on door ] Actually, there he is.

Sally: Okay. Seriously, though, there's got to be something about wyatt.

Flo: Really, I mean...

Wyatt: Hey.

Liam: Hey. Sorry we're late.

Wyatt: No, come on. I didn't even put the portobello on the barbie yet.&

Hope: [ Chuckles ]

Lim: Ahh.

Wyatt: [ Chuckles ] Uh, guys, I want you to meet an old friend of mine -- a young old friend. Uh, flo fulton, this is my brother liam and, uh --

Flo: Oh.

Hope: You.

Sally: You two have met?

Hope: Uh, earlier today. Liam, this is her. This is -- this is phoebe's birth mother.

Andrew wanted nothing to do with his volcano demonstration.

Xander: Did something new happen between you and reese, and, if so, did I miss it?

Zoe: Look, I don't really want to talk about my father tonight.

Xander: But you were worried about him.

Zoe: But he packed his bags. He left. And I'm sitting across the table from a very different man

[Chuckles softly] A man who works hard, who's honest, a man who I'm lucky to have in my life, a man who I trust enough to even think of building a future with.

Xander: Yeah, and that future is gonna look nothing like our messed-up past.

Zoe: Yeah, unless, uh, i become impossible and you pack up and leave the country.

Xander: [ Chuckles ] I bet you $100 that that's not gonna happen.

Zoe: Oh. No wager, please.

Xander: No, I was -- I was kidding.

Zoe: I guess having a father who bets on anything kind of warped my sense of humor.

Xander: Sorry. Forgive me?

Zoe: Give me one good reason why I should. Okay. I might need a second reason.

Xander: Yeah.

Steffy: Okay. That's good. Yeah. I'm not cooking again. You and I, we're, uh -- we're gonna eat what kelly eats. It's actually good.

Taylor: Can I tell you how much I love seeing you happy? A little fatigued but happy.

Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, I am. It's true.

[ Sighs ] I just feel like... I feel like I stole something from someone who deserved it more.

Taylor: Well, you didn'T.

Steffy: What if flo is having second thoughts about giving up her parental rights?

Taylor: She knows how to reach you. You tried to include her, but it wasn't what she wanted. Maybe it takes shutting down certain feelings to be able to do what she had to do.

Steffy: Wherever flo is, i hope she knows that phoebe is in a happy, loving home.

Hope: I don't understand.

Flo: Your -- your brother is -- is married to --

Wyatt: To hope. You met earlier today?

Flo: So, you must be...

Liam: How do you know my brother?

Flo: We, um -- we -- we dated in high school.

Wyatt: I thought it was a little more serious than that. We were high-school sweethearts.

Sally: Oh. Now he tells me.

Wyatt: Babe, seriously, that was, like, a lifetime ago. I-I-I didn't even know she was working at bikini.

Hope: That's where she and i met today, too.

Wyatt: I had no idea you had any other connection with the people in L.A. No, that's not true. You had a friend.

Flo: I don't want to talk about it, please.

Liam: Well, I think it's fair to say this awkward.

Sally: [ Scoffs ] Yeah. This poor woman walks into a house full of strangers who suddenly decides to discuss her highly personal and private business. Maybe... let's just let our guest have a little breathing room.

Hope: I -- yeah. I am so, so sorry. I didn't mean to just blurt it out like that.

Flo: You don't have to apologize.

Wyatt: Did you think you couldn't tell me, like I'd be shocked?

Flo: No. I just, um --

Wyatt: So then why'd you say you never had any kids?

My mom's pain from moderate

Xander: [ Sighs ]

Zoe: [ Sighs ] I really miss him.

Xander: Poor harry. You think we should get a new cat?

Zoe: Prince harry is irreplaceable. You don't just tell someone who's lost a child that, "ah, don't worry. You can have another one." Yeah. Everything living is irreplaceable.

Xander: Well, what about mosquitoes? I don't think I'd miss those.

Zoe: [ Chuckles ]

Xander: It's getting a little warm in here, huh?

Zoe: Well, maybe you should... take something off.

Xander: Well, I-I'd take my hat off, but I'm not wearing one.

Zoe: Mm. Oh. No, no, no, no. A mosquito just flew down your shirt. We can't have that.

Xander: Well, you know best, you know, being a-a doctor's daughter, so...

Zoe: Shh.

Xander: You know, uh... I think I have a bite right here.

Zoe: Oh, yeah?

Xander: Yeah.

[ Door closes ]

Taylor: Everything okay?

Steffy: Yeah. Yeah. I thought I heard a noise, but they're just dreaming. What are you doing?

Taylor: So many wonderful pictures!

[ Gasps ] Ohh.

Steffy: Yeah. They grow -- grow up so fast. I don't want to miss anything.

Taylor: Neither do I. Which is why -- and I don't mean this the wrong way -- I'm glad you haven't heard from flo. For whatever reasons, motherhood was not what she wanted, so she signed it away. And she needs to move on with her life, and we can move on with ours.

Steffy: Yeah, I know. I know. I just thought that phoebe would want to know her and... she would want to know phoebe. Wow. I have been with phoebe longer than flo has. I am a mom. I'm a mother to her in every way that matters.

Taylor: And no one can take that from you.

Flo: I'm so sorry about all of this.

Sally: All of what?

Flo: I should go.

Wyatt: No. Hey, come on. We haven't even started dinner yet.

Hope: Yeah, and I can't stand it if you feel like we put you on the spot. That was not our intention at all.

Liam: Abs-- absolutely. Nobody wants that.

Hope: Yeah, and if you told wyatt that you don't have any children, then you don't have any children. It is as simple as that. And as someone has given birth and who has been through a lot, I understand that it can be difficult to discuss, so...

Flo: But it's true. Phoe-- phoebe isn't mine.

Wyatt: That was -- it was a stupid question, all right? I wasn't thinking. Please just don't go.

Sally: Yeah. Look, we're all so used to being up in each other's business, we're a little rusty at respecting boundaries.

Liam: I'm gonna go ahead and, uh, freshen this up for you.

Hope: You know, do you want to sit with me for a while?

Flo: Sure, sure. Yeah.

Hope: Okay.

Liam: Dude, you really had no idea she was phoebe's birth mom?

Wyatt: None. How could I?

Liam: Well, I -- -Sally: Okay, the woman is more than a walking womb. Can we all just remember that?

Hope: Liam wanted to be there today when I told him that I met you. It's just that phoebe's such a special little girl.

Flo: Yeah. It's just a little hard for me to talk about right now.

Hope: Oh. I mean, no explanation necessary. I-I completely understand.

Liam: Uh, there you go. I, um...

[ Clears throat ] I-I imagine wyatt mentioned that hope and i are grieving the loss of our own daughter.

Flo: He didn'T.

Liam: Oh. Uh... well, it was a stillbirth, so it was kind of like my other daughter lost a sister.

Flo: You -- you have another child?

Hope: Uh, no. Liam does with his ex-wife, steffy.

Liam: Yeah. But, you know, it's kind of like she has a sister back now. You know, phoebe sort of... replaced our daughter.

Flo: I am -- I am so sorry for your loss.

Liam: There's nothing anybody could have done. Don't you worry about it.

Hope: Well, that's not exactly true. There was a windstorm that night. The power went out. There was one doctor at the clinic, and even though the delivery seemed to be going well... I passed out right when I was giving birth to beth. That was the name that we gave her.

Liam: Hope, I don't -- i don't think now is the time --

Hope: Well, no. If I had been stronger, then beth might still be here today, and... flo, I'm so sorry. I am so sorry. You can't take me anywhere. I didn't -- I didn't mean to make you sad.

Flo: It's just I-I-I just -- I know what you're going through.

[ Sniffles ]

Hope: It's okay.

Flo: I just -- I wish I had known.

Hope: Known what? We -- we just met you. There's nothing you could have done. It's okay.

Flo: It's the things you don't do that you regret, you know? There are questions you don't ask. There are objections that you don't raise. Just p-please don't hate me.

Hope: Hate you? I-I have nothing but respect for you.

Liam: And -- and gratitude.

Flo: I don't deserve it.

Wyatt: Flo, nobody here is judging you.

Hope: Are -- are you trying to tell us something? Is that it?

Flo: Yeah. It's, uh... it's about phoebe.
