Provided By Suzanne

Ridge: Taylor, I'm listening to you. I'm trying to make sense of what you're saying, but I'm -- I...

Taylor: I'm telling you that douglas has lost his mother. And hope has lost a child.

Ridge: And that is incredibly tragic, but I'm -- I don't know how much --

Taylor: I'm -- I'm trying to help you understand that when i was in the kitchen the other day and I saw them together, and the way hope was comforting him, the way he responded to her... and the way she responded to him. It's like...

Ridge: Okay, listen to me. I know you're worried about douglas, I get that. He has thomas, he has you, he has me. He has karen and dani. There's a lot of people who care about that little boy. And, yes, hope is one of those people, but she --

Taylor: But I'm wrong to even bring this up when the reality is our grandson needs a mother. And hope desperately needs a child.

Douglas: Do you have any 2s?

Hope: Nope! Go fish!

Douglas: I fished my wish! I win!

Hope: What? Again?

Thomas: Hey, buddy, what's going on?

Douglas: Daddy!

Thomas: Hey! You having a fun time with hope?

Douglas: Uh-huh. I've won like six times!

Thomas: Whoa.

Hope: Mm-hmm, yeah, apparently he's the tom brady of go fish.

Thomas: Or you're just that bad.

Hope: Hey!

Douglas: She's not so bad. Just not as good as mom.

Bill: Karen just responded to my text. She and dani's flight back to new york gets in early.

Katie: [ Sighs ] Good. Though I wish they had stayed longer. I mean, they're gonna need a lot of support, too.

Bill: [ Sighs ] They lost their only child, katie. I feel almost guilty about it.

Katie: Why?

Bill: I have three healthy sons, a thriving granddaughter...

Katie: Well, they have a grandchild, too. Douglas is always gonna be a reminder of caroline.

Bill: I know that. I just --

[ Sighs ] This is just a reminder of how fragile life is, and it just drives home how family is so important. The most important.

Katie: Well, for what it's worth, I think you're doing a pretty good job leading the spencer family through this difficult time.

Bill: Thank you for that. Thank you for being here for me. I can't tell you how much your support means.

Donna: I'm so sorry I didn't get to stop by brooke's after the funeral.

Liam: Oh, no.

Donna: How's -- how's thomas holding up?

Liam: Uh, he's -- he's okay. I think he's more concerned about douglas, you know, just helping him through the whole ordeal.

Wyatt: Mm.

Liam: Listen, I -- losing a mom sucks, I know, but losing a mom at that age...

Wyatt: Especially a mom like caroline. I mean, she lived for that little boy.

Sally: I'll tell you who's impressed me through all of this.

Wyatt: Mm-hmm.

Sally: Your dad.

Justin: Bill?

Sally: Yeah, he's been a rock. For caroline's moms. For the whole spencer family, really.

Wyatt: Yeah. Gives you a little warm, fuzzy feeling, doesn't it?

Liam: Are you asking me if I'm proud of our father? Because...

Wyatt: No, I'm saying that he's been a different man lately. Like, he's been a little more compassionate.

Justin: And I'd say I'd have to agree.

Wyatt: Thank you.

Justin: Yeah.

Donna: So do I. And I think I know somebody else who would agree, too.

Katie: I know that caroline was really special to you.

Bill: She was. I so regret the mistakes I made with her. And I wish caroline was here so that I could express it.

Katie: I know. I can see how hard you're working to repair the relationships in your life that are important to you. Your sons... will, especially.

Bill: I came so close to ruining things with him. I will never let that happen again.

Katie: I believe you. And, more importantly, will does, too. You're making me remember the man I fell in love with.

Thomas: Did hope tell you stories about this cabin?

Douglas: What stories?

Thomas: Oh, well, rumor has it, the people who lived here before, they buried treasure out in the yard.

Douglas: Really? Is it still there?

Thomas: Maybe! We should go look!

Douglas: Will you help?

Hope: Oh, well, I mean, what kind of treasure are we talking about?

Thomas: Oh, you know, the standard -- gold bullion, diamonds, and, um... lollipops!

Hope: [ Laughs ]

Thomas: [ Chuckles ]

Hope: How did you do that? How did he -- how did he do that?

Douglas: He did...this!

Hope: [ Gasps ] Wow!

Thomas: Oh! Magician!

Hope: Oh, my gosh, are you a wizard?

[ Laughs ]

Taylor: Douglas needs a mother, and hope desperately needs a child. You can't deny that.

Ridge: I am -- I'm not denying that, and you can't deny that hope actually has a life. She -- she's married. She has a husband -- liam.

Taylor: For how long?

Ridge: For how long? I don't -- I don't know how long. They made vows to each other, taylor.

Taylor: Liam and steffy made vows to each other, and if bill hadn't interfered...

Ridge: Well, he did interfere. And that changed everything.

Taylor: No, it didn'T. It did not change everything. Our daughter still loves liam, and you know that he loves her. And they have a family together. They should be raising their children together.

Ridge: That's what they're doing, taylor. They are -- they're raising kelly together, and they're raising phoebe together.

Taylor: I'm talking about under the same roof!

Wyatt: Well, caroline's death really hit the old man hard.

Justin: Yeah, bill definitely has a soft spot for his niece.

Donna: Not unlike the soft spot he still has for katie.

Sally: I just got to say, I have no idea how those two ever worked.

Wyatt: Mm.

Sally: They're so totally different.

Liam: That's kind of why they worked -- yin and yang. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough to keep them together.

Justin: I know bill is definitely happy to have katie by his side right now.

Bill: It works both ways, you know.

Katie: What does?

Bill: You stepped up, too.

Katie: In what way?

Bill: In every way. I mean, it's true that we're no longer married, but I know I can count on you for anything. You're a true spencer.

Katie: [ Laughs ]

Bill: [ Chuckles ] You are. And you've proven it time and time again. You're proving it right now. Thank you for being there for me, katie. It means more than you know.

Hope: Mm-hmm, you bet I will!

Taylor: I really believe when steffy and the girls come back from europe that liam is going to go back to them.

Ridge: You got to stop talking like that, you really do.

Taylor: I am merely telling you what hope's wishes are.

Ridge: You think this is her wish, to end her marriage? This is not what she wants.

Taylor: It's what hope said!

Ridge: Maybe she said it because she is upset! How do you not see that?

Taylor: Well, the fact that she said, then she must know that some part of it is right...

Ridge: No! Taylor, I --

[ Groans ]

Taylor: Why aren't you concerned about this? Why can't you step up as steffy's father?

Ridge: Step up? Wow, okay. Uh, I'm sorry, what do you expect me to do?

Taylor: If you know how much steffy loves liam, then why don't you want them to live together? Don't you want liam to go back and be there for our daughter and our granddaughters? At least advocate for them! Encourage it! And now we have thomas, who just lost the mother of his son! Maybe hope could be there for douglas, and douglas could be there for hope.

Ridge: And then steffy and liam could be back together. Is that what you're saying?

Taylor: Yes! They belong together. How could you not want that? What does help for heart failure look like?

Donna: So, has anyone heard anything more about bill and katie's "accidental" lunch at il giardino the other day?

Wyatt: You mean what happened when they found out it wasn't so accidental?

Justin: Wait a minute, so you're saying...in fact, it wasn't?

Wyatt: Wasn't what?

Justin: Accidental. Did you set the whole thing up?

Wyatt: Me?

Justin: Yeah.

Wyatt: [ Laughs ] What? Come on. Do I look like cupid to you?

Liam: Okay, so either it wasn't wyatt, or he's deflecting.

Wyatt: What --

Donna: Or... it was one of us.

Sally: I think I know who it might be... but I'm not saying.

Donna: [ Sighs ]

Justin: [ Scoffs ]

Donna: Well, whatever happened, I think we can all agree on one thing. We'd all like to see bill and katie back together again.

Katie: If you'd like to come by the house and see will, he's been really sad about caroline. I'm sure talking to you would help.

Bill: Say no more. I'll be there.

Katie: Okay. Well, um, I guess I'll go. See you later, unless i expectedly bump into you first.

Bill: I look forward to it.

Douglas: Can I go play outside?

Thomas: [ Laughs ] Yeah, but, uh, don't go digging up the place. I was kidding about the treasure. We're gonna be staying with granddad and brooke for a while.

Douglas: And hope, too?

Thomas: Yeah. And hope, too.

Hope: Yeah, your daddy's right. I'm not going anywhere.

Ridge: Let me try to explain this again. I'm not gonna promote hope losing her husband. She's lost enough, I think, don't you? That's my wife's daughter.

Taylor: I'm well aware.

Ridge: Okay, so whatever needs to happen has to happen between hope and liam.

Taylor: What I think... hope and thomas were in love at one time, okay? They have a history together. And hope is pushing liam away. And, eventually, we both know that liam is going to go back to steffy. And, like I said... when I saw hope and douglas in the kitchen, the way she was comforting him and embracing him... this is a little boy who just lost his mother, and thomas is grieving. What I think is they all need each other. I think they would all be good for each other!

Ridge: So, after everything we talked about, everything i said to you, everything you said to me, you think that thomas and hope should be together? Really? (Vo) they're all going in the

Wyatt: You're having a hard time with this, too, aren't you?

Liam: Yeah, I mean... she was just this whirlwind of creativity and energy, and she was a mom who loved her kid more than anything, and I -- I don't know, it's hard to believe she's just gone from all our lives.

Wyatt: Liam, listen, uh... I know you've been dealing with a lot of loss lately. With beth, now caroline... and I know you're worried about your wife.

Hope: I'm glad you and douglas are staying in L.A. For a while. It helps having family and friends close by for support.

Thomas: I'm not sure it's even sunk in yet. I mean, I -- I know caroline's gone, but the way it happened. You know, one minute, she's alive and vital, and the next... still, as hard as it for me, douglas adored his mom. But now it's up to me, you know? I'm a single parent. Talk about scary.

Hope: Well, you'll be fine, and so will douglas. But, you know, it takes time. We're all here for both of you.

Thomas: Thanks. You -- you've been amazing with douglas. I can tell the wonderful effect you've had on him.

Hope: Yeah, well, he's a sweetheart, and I'm happy to help any way I can.

Ridge: Look at me. Really look at me. Thomas, hope, and douglas -- you got to let that go, all right?

Taylor: No, I need you to hear what I'm trying to tell you. Our little grandson just lost his mother. He is never going to feel her arms around him again. He'll never hear her voice. That is devastating to a child.

Ridge: I know, of course it is. I know it is.

Taylor: And thomas -- how is he going to handle the responsibility of being a single parent? It's too much! It's just too much!

Ridge: Hey, take a breath. Come here. Take a breath.

Taylor: [ Sighs ]

Ridge: It's gonna be okay.

Taylor: What happened to our family? Nothing's been the same since i lost you. I miss what we had. I've never stopped loving you, ridge.

Ridge: I know you're upset. I'm upset, too. What happened to thomas and douglas, it's awful. But we got to put this conversation behind us, and we got to put this -- this kiss behind us, too, all right?

Taylor: Okay.

Ridge: Okay.

[ Door opens, closes ]

Brooke: Taylor. I'm really sorry. About caroline. It's really tragic. And I can only imagine what thomas and douglas are feeling right now. I'm sorry I didn't make it to the memorial. I'm sure it was beautiful.

Taylor: Thank you.

Brooke: Thank you. For being here for ridge. I know he was really upset by this. I'm sure that you are, too. Tragic times like these, they bring people together. Emotions are raw. I wouldn't even blame you if you were feeling vulnerable. But to see what I walked in on... you, in my living room, kissing my husband... that is inexcusable. It's unacceptable in so many ways. Taylor, we have been down this road before! We're not gonna do it again. Any inappropriate behavior with my husband -- my husband -- is going to be dealt with swiftly and forcefully. Do you hear me? Tell me! Tell me you understand!
