Bill: [ Sighs ]
Katie: I didn't knock.
Bill: You never have to.
[ Sighs ] It's a beautiful day.
Katie: Yeah, it is.
Bill: People making money. Losing money. Just going about their business.
Katie: They're living their lives. Doesn't mean they don't care.
Bill: I wasn't thinking that. Did you tell will?
Katie: No, not yet.
Katie: I thought maybe you'd want to.
Bill: Not today.
Katie: I dropped him off at school. I just, um... I wanted to come check on you.
Bill: Thank you, katie.
Quinn: Hey, ridge. Uh, question -- do you know where brooke keeps her good serving pieces?
Ridge: Um... there's a-a hutch in the kitchen. I think there's stuff in there.
Quinn: [ Sighs ] I-I didn't even think to look there. Sorry.
Ridge: I should, um... I should help. But, you know, I don't even know what's in the kitchen. I'm sorry.
Quinn: No, no, no, no, no. I brought -- I brought coffee and pastries and fruit. It's okay. Let me handle this.
[ Knock on door ] Hey, steffy.
Steffy: [ Sighs ]
Quinn: I'm gonna go to the kitchen and leave you guys.
Ridge: Yeah. Hey.
Steffy: Dad, I'm so sorry.
Ridge: Don't worry about me.
Steffy: How many times have I said that to you? And does it stop you?
Steffy: Where's granddad?
Ridge: He, uh -- he's in the den. As head of the family, he figured he should contact some people personally.
Taylor: Yes. Eric always knows what to do. Just one phone call is all it takes and... you know your life will never be the same.
Ridge: Come here.
Bill: I didn't want to give you the bad news over the phone.
Wyatt: A-a blood clot?
Katie: We don't have many of the details.
Hope: Do the forresters know?
Bill: Eric just called.
Wyatt: Wait, did -- so did he have more information, or...?
Bill: I didn't want to push it, wyatt.
Hope: Well, is there anything we can do?
Bill: Keep them in your thoughts.
Ridge: Did you contact spencer?
Steffy: How'd he sound?
Quinn: [ Sighs ] It's so sad.
Taylor: Were you able to reach...?
Eric: Oh, yeah. He'll be here within the hour.
Quinn: Both of them will.
Steffy: Just awful.
Quinn: Steffy, will you help me in the kitchen?
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, of course.
Quinn: Thanks. I-I can't think of anything other than saucers and napkins and...
Ridge: I thought it would help, having it in the room with us.
Quinn: It's a beautiful photo.
Taylor: So beautiful.
Steffy: So funny and talented and sweet.
Ridge: [ Sighs ] Caroline. What a terrible loss. S
Bill: Soon it's going to be public knowledge. Karen's sending me a draft of the obituary. She wants to make sure that the, um -- the details of caroline's life in L.A. Aren't left out.
Katie: Caroline [Sighs] Grew up a whole lot while she was out here in a short amount of time, both professionally and personally.
Liam: She always wanted to make a name for herself as a designer.
Sally: We had a lot in common.
Wyatt: Yeah. And after she apprenticed with ridge, nobody doubted she had serious chops as a designer.
Katie: And then there was thomas.
Bill: I know what you're thinking.
Sally: Maybe you do.
Bill: The lie I told.
Wyatt: It was nobody's finest hour, dad.
Liam: Especially not caroline'S.
Sally: Yeah, or thomas'. All the questions he never asked.
Bill: And now the lie has become true.
Katie: Bill, don'T. Caroline's death is not on you, okay?
Hope: Lately I've noticed how every life, no matter how brief, changes the world. And everything we think and feel, and the choices we make for ourselves is somehow influenced by people who may or may not be here anymore.
Quinn: Did he say when it happened?
Eric: Or -- or where? Or how?
Taylor: Just a sudden blood clot is all thomas could tell me. I didn't want to make him tell me too many details.
Ridge: [ Sighs ] Well, he's on his way. He can tell us when he gets here.
Eric: One of us should go back to new york with him, help square things away.
Taylor: Well, let's wait and -- and let thomas tell us what he wants to do first.
Steffy: He'll want to be here. This is the only place that's home to him.
Ridge: Okay. Let's try not to overwhelm the boy.
Steffy: [ Sighs ]
Ridge: He'll tell us what he wants to tell us when he's ready.
Taylor: Mostly, last night, all thomas wanted me to do was tell him how to tell douglas.
Quinn: Oh, I don't envy anyone having to tackle that question.
Ridge: The kid's so young.
Eric: Maybe too young to understand. Maybe that's not such a bad thing.
Steffy: When a child loses their mom... they think it's a lie. They think that they're just lost. But they definitely feel terribly abandoned.
Eric: We won't let douglas feel that way. We'll surround him with love. We'll keep his mother's spirit alive.
Ridge: [ Sighs ] I loved this woman. I loved everything about her. 'Cause she chose to live life out loud. Who does that anymore? And she never apologized for it. She celebrated it, and she relished it. So did I. She was always full of fun and -- and joy and laughter. And tears. Full of passion for her work, and... passion for the beaty in this world that most of us don't even see anymore. And passion for the people that she chose to have in her life. I've never met anyone like that. Have you? No. And I don't think we will again. Liberty mutual accident forgiveness
Bill: I had the same impulse to gather the family. Your call couldn't have come at a better time.
Eric: Well, caroline was part of our family, too. So sorry, bill.
Bill: Thank you.
Ridge: She loved you.
Bill: I loved her.
Katie: Um, I talked to brooke.
Ridge: So did I.
Katie: I told her the sad news, and she said she was gonna try to get a flight out, but the weather there has been really awful.
Ridge: There's no reason for her to be here. Just -- I-I wish I would have told her to call rick and talk.
Eric: I spoke to him. I spoke to rick.
Ridge: Well, then, she just needs to stay where she is. There's nothing she can do here, anyway.
Katie: Well, she could be here for you and your son.
Hope: Has anyone talked to thomas?
Steffy: My dad. He's not sure when he's gonna get in.
Hope: I mean, how did he seem? Did ridge say?
Steffy: I mean, he's numb and tired. I know he hasn't had any sleep. You two, you don't -- you don't look that good, either.
Wyatt: I mean... I never had a sister, but I-I -- I felt like I did with caroline.
Liam: I mean, she just sent me this photo of douglas at a sleepover like last week.
[ Knock on door ]
Taylor: That's them.
Thomas: Bud, can you say hi to your grandpa?
Ridge: Hi. Come here. I missed you. I missed you, too. I'm glad you're home. I wish, uh --
Thomas: I -- I know. I know. Mom.
Taylor: [ Crying ] I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry, sweetheart. I'm so heartbroken for you.
Steffy: You just keep getting more and more handsome.
Douglas: Thanks, aunt steffy.
Steffy: [ Chuckles ] Soon you're gonna be modeling for the family company.
Douglas: Mommy used to say that, too.
Steffy: [ Inhales sharply ]
Eric: Thomas. I'm so sorry. I know.
Eric: [ Sighs ] Well, young man. How was the airplane ride?
Douglas: They let me look at the cockpit.
Eric: [ Chuckles ] What? That's great. Thanks, liam. Thomas, we're all here. We're all here for you, whatever you need.
Thomas: That would be this.
Liam: I'm sorry.
Liam: The last time I heard from caroline, she said that -- that you had something to ask me, which
[Chuckles] I kind of thought was unlikely.
Wyatt: Wait. She texted me the same thing.
Thomas: We were talking about final things, as moms and dads sometimes have to, and she had made up her mind that she wanted you to be douglas' godparents.
Liam: That's quite an honor.
Wyatt: Yeah. Um... so, sh-- so -- so the kid will have two godfathers?
Thomas: Think that would worry caroline?
Liam: [ Snorts ]
Liam: Well, we're -- we're very flattered. I mean, as you know, we loved our cousin very much.
Wyatt: Yeah. I mean, impossible as caroline was sometimes, she was... it was even more impossible not to love her.
Bill: Hello, thomas.
Wyatt: [ Clears throat ] You want to get some food?
Liam: Yeah, definitely.
Thomas: Bill. I'm sorry for your loss.
Bill: I appreciate you saying that. Although I, uh... I think I lost caroline a long time ago. Well before the rest of you did.
Thomas: You're mistaken. You were the male authority figure in her life. She looked up to you, even when you didn't deserve iT.
Bill: Things weren't good between us the last time I saw her.
Thomas: Well, there's something you should know, bill. She forgave you.
Hope: Okay, douglas. So, yours is charging, but here is mine for now. I've got some games on there if you like.
Steffy: I'm gonna call amelia, check on the girls. You mind?
Hope: Oh, of course. Yeah.
[ Clears throat ]
[ Sighs ] There's a lot of people here, huh? Yeah. Are you looking for someone? You know, um... sometimes we can't help but look for people who aren't here anymore. You know, I do that. Even though I know she's not here. Hey. Are you like me? Do you get as thirsty as I do after plane rides? Yeah? Do you want to go see what we have in the fridge? Okay.
Wyatt: You okay? You're pretty quiet.
Sally: [ Sighs ] I just really don't know what to say.
Wyatt: Neither does he. It'll be okay.
Ridge: I'm gonna check on my grandson.
Thomas: All right.
Ridge: 'Scuse me.
Thomas: [ Sighs ]
Sally: Welcome home, stranger.
Thomas: L.A.'S your home again, too, I hear?
Sally: Yeah, it wasn't exactly a soft landing but, you know... heh.
Thomas: Sorry about that.
Sally: You had a gentleman of a son to raise, and I... it was the best for the both of us. Look, I'm really sorry. For every wrong and... hurtful thing. And I'm really sorry that she's gone.
[ Inhales sharply ]
Thomas: Thank you.
Thomas: Hey. What is it, bud?
Douglas: Mommy's here.
Hope: Um, you know, douglas and I were just about to go into the kitchen and see what kind of drinks we have.
Thomas: Thank you.
Hope: Yeah. Okay. Ready?
Thomas: [ Sniffles ] Uh, thank you, everyone, for being here. Uh, your condolences... it's what I needed. I was reminded, walking in here today, that, uh...
[ Sighs ] ...You understand me.
[ Voice breaking ] So did caroline. For all of her, uh... for all of her high jinks, heh, and high spirits, her way of going 0 to 60 in a split second, she, uh... she got me. She knew [Clears throat] I never felt at home in new york. We had actually talked about possib-- we talked about a lot of things we'll never do now. But you know what? She -- she'd be really glad that my son and I are -- are -- we're here.
Taylor: So are we.
[ Crying ] Honey, we've missed you terribly.
Ridge: None of this is easy or fair. But you're home now. You're surrounded by friends and family. We're here for you. You're gonna be okay. We love you, son.
Thomas: Thank you.
