Provided By Suzanne
Hope: You want to tell us something about phoebe.
Flo: Yeah. Liam, you -- you said that, um, that she has kind of taken the place of your baby?
Liam: Oh, I -- listen, I should not have put it that way. That's not what I meant. I just --
Flo: Is that -- is that how you really feel? Because, if you do, then... there's something I really need to tell you, and I am -- I am so, so sorry.
Hope: No, it's okay. It's okay.
Flo: It's -- it's not okay. It's wrong. All of this. All of this is wrong. None of this should have happened.
Wyatt: Flo, we all feel that way.
Sally: It's a really tragic situation.
Hope: But you shouldn't feel bad. You gave kelly a little sister. You shouldn't feel bad about anything at all.
Flo: You shouldn't feel bad, either. You shouldn't be going through this pain. You -- you don't deserve it.
Steffy: Oh, mom, don't worry about that. I can get that later, it's fine.
Taylor: No, honey, it's no trouble. You sit. You need to relax.
Steffy: [ Sighs ] Is it weird that I check on them every time I hear a noise?
Taylor: I don't know. Is it weird I sit up and listen every time I hear you get up in the night?
[ Chuckles ] So, they're good? They're fine?
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah. They're perfect. I could just stand there and watch them for hours. I love them so much.
Taylor: I know you do, and it's a beautiful thing. I just wish you didn't have to do this all on your own.
Steffy: I'm -- I'm not. I have you. And dad's willing to pitch in.
Taylor: That's not what i meant. Liam should be here with you.
Steffy: [ Sighs ] You're not the only one who feels that way. Hope does, too.
Zoe: [ Exhales sharply ]
Xander: What? What is it?
Zoe: I just need to catch my breath.
Xander: You might want to see someone about that. Seems to happen every time we're like this.
Zoe: [ Chuckles ] Well, there was a time when I wasn't sure it would ever happen again.
Xander: Yeah. Took a while to get back there.
Zoe: Yeah. Yeah, we had to come all the way to los angeles, become new people.
Xander: With new accents.
Zoe: [ Chuckles ] Yeah. But... one thing didn't change, xander. The way I love you.
Taylor: What exactly did hope say?
Steffy: Mom, I only mentioned it because I'm concerned. Hope is in so much pain. She said liam and I should be raising the girls together. She wanted to give phoebe and kelly everything she wanted for beth. It's heartbreaking.
Hope: Flo, listen, I know you think that there must be something you can say, some way to comfort me...
More than anything.
Wyatt: Join the club.
Sally: Yeah, people have tried some really crazy things.
Hope: And, like you, they were just trying to help, and i appreciate that.
Liam: But, look, I mean, what tonight is all about is moving forward, getting out, seeing friends.
Hope: And making new ones. And as grateful as I am for your kind words of support, I mean, there's no way to change what happened. Even though it kills me to say this... our beth is gone, and there is nothing anyone can do to bring her back.
Steffy: We tried to reason with her. Hope didn't have to feel guilty, but she was so distraught. Like, I could feel the pain that she was in.
Taylor: Hope actually took off her ring?
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, I couldn't believe it.
Taylor: Well, then what happened?
Steffy: What do you think happened? Liam insisted that she put it back on.
Taylor: [ Scoffs ]
Flo: I can't believe I'm doing this.
Zoe: You can't be around here. You could go to prison for a very long time. You know, we could all end up locked up.
Flo: I mean, my, um... my ex-boyfriend invites me over to dinner at his house and wants me to meet his brother and his brother's wife, and then... you walk in.
Hope: Trust me, I was just as shocked as you were but I'm -- I am so glad that you're here.
Liam: Yeah. Me, too. I mean, I was telling hope i really wanted to meet you.
Flo: You're all way too nice.
Wyatt: See? Warned you.
Sally: Hey, and hope was right. Look, you have absolutely nothing to feel bad about. Trust me, this is not the first time tears have been shed at one of my dinner parties.
Wyatt: [ Chuckles ]
Hope: And thank you for reminding me that I'm not the only person with challenges in her life.
Liam: Why don't we go get you a drink?
Sally: And I will get the hors d'oeuvres.
Hope: I felt so bad. I mean, it just came out...
Liam: I know.
Wyatt: You okay?
Flo: Uh, yeah. Yeah. I'm -- I'm so sorry I got so emotional.
Wyatt: What? What are you talking about?
Flo: I mean, they're obviously going through so much, and you were just trying to to lighten the mood and take their mind off of it, and...
Wyatt: Wasn't gonna happen, even if you hadn't said anything.
Flo: I just feel like I should have said more.
Wyatt: At another time. Trust me, hope and liam are gonna have tons of questions for you. I mean, I -- I can't even believe that you're my niece's birth mother. It's crazy.
Flo: I know, all of these connections -- meeting hope and running into you again, it'S...
Wyatt: I know. Yeah. Hey, why don't we take a photo? I mean, nobody's gonna believe it if we don't, right?
Flo: [ Sighs ]
Wyatt: Plus, uh, maybe it'll get us back in the party mood, huh?
Wyatt: Say "queso!"
Flo: [ Chuckles ]
Wyatt: [ Chuckles ] Is it okay if I post this?
Wyatt: Okay. [ Clears throat ] And, uh, you know, for what it's worth, like... I think you did a brave thing.
Flo: Phoebe didn't belong to me.
Wyatt: I know, but the situation -- it's probably hard.
Flo: More than you'll ever know.
Wyatt: And, look, I don't mean to pry, or anything. I mean, we go back a long time. But I was just wondering -- phoebe's dad -- is it someone i know? Say no more.
Flo: I'm gonna -- I'm gonna go get another wine.
Wyatt: Okay. Hi. Ooh! Look at you.
Hope: Hi. I'm sorry if I overstepped before, I just --
Flo: No, you -- you didn'T.
Hope: You know, I don't know if the adoption was challenging for you. I only know what liam and steffy told me, which was all good things, of course. And now I see that they were all true.
Flo: No, hope, I -- I feel like i should be the one apologizing to you for so many things.
Hope: Oh, no, I mean don't -- please, don't worry about anything you said. I was touched, really. I think it's wonderful that you care so much about a complete stranger.
Flo: You don't feel like a stranger to me.
Hope: No. You don't feel that way to me, either.
Zoe: I know I made the right decision, following you to los angeles.
[ Chuckles ]
Xander: What, you're just deciding this now?
Zoe: Well, I'm constantly being reminded.
Xander: Yeah, I, uh -- I didn't give you the warmest welcome.
Zoe: Well, you're making up for it now.
Xander: I mean, are we keeping score?
Zoe: [ Giggles ]
Xander: I thought we made a fresh start -- you know, new jobs, new city... new life.
Zoe: Mm-hmm. And all the perks of the old life.
Xander: Yeah, a few new ones, as well. [ Chuckles ]
[ Cellphone chimes ]
Zoe: Mm. Oh!
Zoe: Yeah, but it could be important.
Xander: More important than this?
Zoe: No! It's just, uh... a new post.
Xander: [ Scoffs ] You are a social media addict.
Zoe: Okay, well, katie said herself that she wants us to increase our visibility, so...
Xander: Don't blame this on work.
Zoe: Oh. No, no, no, no, no. What -- what is she doing there?
Steffy: What happened to beth... I mean, what hope and liam are going through, it's -- it's awful.
Taylor: Honey, I feel for hope, too, as much as you do.
Steffy: She's stuck, mom.
Taylor: Well, then you can only imagine how awful that must feel. She so desperately wants things to change so she can move forward. Hope told liam to go back to you because she was thinking of those two beautiful girls in there. Doing what's best for them.
Hope: I was a little thrown off at bikini...
Wyatt: You know if hope's doing okay?
Liam: Seems to be, yeah.
Hope: I -- I totally understand.
Sally: [ Sighs ] It was kind of dicey there for a minute.
Liam: Yeah, I -- I honestly wasn't sure how hope was gonna react to all that stuff flo was saying.
Wyatt: Well, I think it's a painful subject.
Liam: Yeah, but I think flo's concern seemed really genuine.
Wyatt: Yeah, I mean, I think so, too. A lot like hope in that way. I mean, ask anyone we knew back in vegas, and they would say flo was always such a kind, generous person.
Liam: You know, that's the vibe steffy got, too.
Sally: Flo did a really incredible thing, giving kelly a little sister.
Liam: Yeah, well, it's incredible for hope, too. I mean, to have phoebe in her life, especially at this time, that's a blessing.
Flo: When I overheard you talking about it, what that night was like for you and how much you miss your baby, it just... it just really hit me.
Hope: Well, you understand.
Flo: More than you know. I mean, nothing like what you went through, obviously. You didn't have a choice. I did.
Hope: But you made a very selfless one. And it's one that has brought joy to a very dark time in my life.
Xander: Zoe. What is going on?
Zoe: Something I thought i took care of. I have to go.
Steffy: Mom, the girls are fine. You're here with us. You see how happy they are.
Taylor: What about you? Are you as happy as you could be?
Steffy: [ Sighs ]
Taylor: You don't have to hide from me how you feel. I already know what you're feeling. I just -- I hate it that your children are having to go through what you did. The way brooke used her sexuality to manipulate your father and tore our family apart...
Steffy: Hope isn't like brooke.
Taylor: No, no, they're very different, but hope used her own tactics to take liam away from you.
Steffy: She didn't take liam away. She's not keeping kelly away from him. Stop doing that. Don't make me out to be the victim, I'm not.
Taylor: You're not living the life you wanted.
Steffy: Neither is liam. Neither is hope. You know, I have two beautiful girls, and I get to hold them, and I can watch them grow up.
Taylor: But you're doing it alone! Even hope know that's not the way it should be. I hate that she's suffering and she's going through so much pain, and I feel for brooke and the entire family, but hope is right. Liam should be here! He should be here with you, helping you with those little girls.
Steffy: [ Sighs ]
Taylor: Look, I'm -- I'm not trying to diminish what you've accomplished, honey. And it doesn't change how impressed I am with your strength and what a wonderful mother you are. And I know you're not a victim. Neither am I. We may have lost liam and ridge, but that doesn't define us. It doesn't hold us back. We have so much to be grateful for, honey. So many amazing things ahead of us, and we have each other and those two beautiful little girls. And no one can take that away from us.
Hope: Does it bother you if i talk about phoebe? I just -- I don't want to say the wrong thing.
Flo: No, no. I -- I can tell that she really means a lot to you.
Hope: Yeah, she does.
Sally: Should we interrupt?
Liam: No, I think this is a good thing, and hope needs someone to talk to, you know?
Wyatt: Yeah, and, in a way, flo probably feels what hope's going through.
Hope: You know, right from the beginning, I felt this incredible bond with phoebe, and it didn't make sense to me, how I could feel so connected to this -- this little stranger, but meeting you, now i understand. You know, when I look at phoebe, I just see this goodness and this warmth, and I see the same in you.
Flo: I don't deserve that.
Hope: Trust me, I have the same reaction when people say that about me.
Flo: When they say that about you, it's true.
Hope: I cannot think of a more courageous and compassionate act than what you did for phoebe. I mean, you gave her a beautiful future. You have to know that. Steffy is a devoted mother, and, honesty, I can't think of anyone who could be a better mother to that little angel.
Flo: You would make a great mother, too. I'm -- I'm sorry, I know -- I know that you're still grieving her loss, but it's true. I -- I really, really hope that you try again one day.
Hope: I don't think so.
Flo: You -- you have to. I mean, you would be such a great mother. Just the way that you talk about phoebe, I can tell.
Hope: I -- I can't go through that again.
Flo: You're heartbroken now, but you can't give up.
Hope: Maybe that's just the way it's meant to be. Maybe I'm not supposed to bring a child into this world.
Flo: No, no, no, no, no, no, no. Please, I mean -- look, I know we just met, you don't know me, but I -- I -- I can tell. I just -- I just really, really hope you don't give up. Please, please promise me. You're meant to be a mother. I can tell. I am absolutely certain of it.
