Ridge: You're pregnant?
Steffy: Yeah. You're gonna be a grandpa... again. [ Chuckles ]
Ridge: That is... amazing news.
Steffy: Yeah. I am happy, dad. I know it's still early but I got to hear the heartbeat and everything.
Ridge: Another baby, huh? Little brother or sister for kelly.
Steffy: I haven't told kelly yet. I don't wanna confuse her until I know what's really going on. Everything is still so complicated.
Ridge: Yeah. It is complicated... 'cause you spent the night with liam and he could be the father.
Liam: I'm so sorry, hope. I know I've jeopardized everything that we have.
Hope: We put so much of our hearts and ourselI am scared that I will never be able to get that vision of you and steffy out of my head and that our love is just going to turn into resentment and pain.
Steffy: I wasn't planning on telling you about the pregnancy until I knew who the father is.
Ridge: Well, I'm glad you confided in me. What can I do to help?
Steffy: I already got a paternity test. I'm just waiting to get the test results. I want it to be finn'S. I'm--I'm praying it is.
[ Knocks on door ]
Steffy: Hey. I was just filling my dad in.
Ridge: Well, finn, this is a tough position you're in... but I'm glad you're here. - Bedtime!! - Bedtime.
Zoe: I will be shocked if carter ever forgives me.
Paris: What exactly did he say?
Zoe: Oh, really, paris? Really? You expect me to confide in you, after all this destruction that you've caused?
Paris: Zoe, let me be here for you.
Zoe: Yeah, well, it's too late. And, mind you, I wouldn't even be in this mess if it weren't for you. If you have actually listened to me in the first place and never accepted this job. You know what? Fine. I will admit it. I will take responsibility. I made the decision to go over to zende'S. But I never wanted to lose carter.
Paris: You and carter can still figure out how to make this work.
Zoe: [ Sighs ] No. You don't understand, paris. It was all happening so fast. Carter fell for me so hard. He was so attentive and--and interested. And the next thing I know we're moving in together, and then we're engaged to be married, which--wow, I can't even say that now because of you.
Zoe: No. No. You don't know how awkward this is gonna be for me now. Coming here every day, trying to do my job when carter and ridge, they're like this. I mean, seriously, do you understand how hard it was for me to regain the forrester's trust. Do you understand that? And--and now I can't even imagine how much ridge hates me.
Paris: It was all because of your actions. You did that.
Zoe: You just--you still don't understand what I'm going through. I mean, seriously, everything that's been happening in my life, and I'm trying--I'm trying to figure it out.
Paris: Okay. Fine. But I still don't understand what you're relationship with carter has to do with me. Why does me being here bother you so much?
Zoe: Because forrester is-- is my place, my business. It's not yours. There's not enough room for the both of us, which means you need to leave today.
Paris: [ Sighs ]
Hope: I'm not sure what the next step will be.
Liam: Well, they're running the paternity test now. Steffy says it could take a few days.
Thomas: Um... what does steffy think? I mean, she's always been pretty intuitive about these things. Does she have any feeling either way?
Liam: Her gut is telling her the baby is finn'S.
Hope: But we don't know if that's just wishful thinking. We're not going to know for certain until we have the results which will hopefully happen soon.
Thomas: I can't imagine just how stressful this waiting is for-- for all of you.
Hope: There is a lot riding on the outcome.
Liam: Well, I'm with you. Steffy can count on me to be there for the baby if it's mine, but nothing has to change between us.
Hope: We'll see.
Liam: Right. I know. I--I have to be patient. I'm the one who brought us to this place and I have no right to expect you to reassure me in this moment. I...
Hope: I hate that you doubted me enough to go and run to steffy. I mean, you were so sure of my infidelity. And you could have driven over to wyatt's, or a friend's house, or come home to me.
Liam: I wish I had, more than anything.
Hope: But you didn'T. So now we wait. We wait to see if you're the father of steffy's baby.
Finn: I assume steffy told you we're waiting to find out who the father is?
Steffy: Yeah. Really hate the waiting.
Ridge: I guess you didn't expect to be in a situation like this.
Finn: [ Chuckles ] Uh...no, not really.
Ridge: Liam and steffy, they have a very complicated relationship. They screwed up.
Finn: We've discussed it, extensively. I'm still trying to process everything that happened, but, um... make no mistake, ridge, I love your daughter, and what happened that night will never change that.
Ridge: [ Chuckles ] Well, good, 'cause you might be having a baby together if you can get past this. Um... I know she wants to raise it with you.
Finn: I really hope the baby is mine too. I knew about the tremors.
Zoe: No, you--you can't work here anymore, paris. You need to leave.
Paris: Zoe, come on. I wanna work this out. Dad's in prison, and I moved down here in-- in part to be closer to you.
Zoe: Well, I'm sorry, paris, but you shouldn't have come here. And to be honest with you, I--I don't like being responsible for you.
Paris: You're not. I mean, can--can we just support each other? I found a place here, a potential home. Uh, I don't want my sister against me.
Zoe: And why do you wanna be here so badly? Like, why here?
Paris: Because the forrester foundation has one of the best repute...
Zoe: Oh, come on. No. Because you could get a job at any nonprofit on the planet. So why this one? Why? What? Is it so you can be close to zende?
Paris: No. It's not about zende. It's about the two of us. We have to keep our love and respect for each other. I shouldn't be a threat to you.
Zoe: You're not a threat, paris, but you have upended my life since the day that you got into town.
Paris: How could you say that to me? I like being around you. I don't wanna leave. I have a great opportunity here. And I will put in a good word with carter and you two will have to work it out. You'll just have to. But, zoe, sometimes you lose control. You go too far and you end up getting yourself in trouble. But I know deep down that you are a decent person, and I will try my hardest to make carter see that. Zoe, please, why can't we be close? Why can't we share our lives together?
Liam: Look, this is a lot to share in front of you, thomas.
Thomas: I offered to leave.
Hope: Well, I mean, you already know all of this, and he is steffy's brother.
Liam: That's true. Hey, listen, I get it. I get it. You are emotionally involved in this. Steffy is your sister. And also I know you and I know that on some level you see yourself being protective of hope, so...
Thomas: Look, liam, I am very worried about steffy. She finally got herself to a good headspace as far as you're concerned. I think that steffy's finally moved on a little bit with her life. I think that's what she wants to do. I think that's what everyone wants, including you. Man, I can--I can see how much you regret what you did. And I hope that you can see it too.
Paris: I can't believe you're still trying to get me to leave forrester.
Zoe: Oh, I'm more determined than ever. In fact, I actually had something written up for you.
Paris: A resignation letter?
Zoe: You're resigning your position here at forrester.
Zoe: Today is your last day.
Paris: You-- you can't be serious.
Zoe: Oh, I'm dead serious, paris. So pack up your stuff. Thank ridge, carter, zende, and then tell them that you're leaving.
Paris: They all know how much I like it here.
Zoe: Okay. Great. So then get creative. Make something up. Whatever you do, just make them believe that it's your idea.
Zoe: No. Bottom line, I want you out today.
Paris: This makes me so sad.
Zoe: I'm sorry, paris, but this is just how it has to be.
Paris: Really? This is it what it's come to? Our relationship, this is what I mean to you? Kicking me out of here? Kicking me out of your life? Look, I know-- I know that it's always been super complicated between us, but this time I thought it was gonna be different.
Zoe: Well, I guess things never change.
Paris: Yeah. Well, one thing has changed, I grew up. I'm not a kid anymore. I'm not just your little sister. I went to college, got my degrees. I've achieved things in life that I'm proud of. And being here having ridge forrester offer me a job is one of the things I'm most proud of. So, no, I won't be leaving today or ever. I'm not signing this, and I'm not allowing you to ever boss me around ever again.
Thomas: I know you don't trust what I'm saying but it's true. It's just-- there's been too much pain and heartache in hope and steffy's lives, and-- I wanna see my sister happy.
Liam: I want that too.
Thomas: And I think she has that with finn, that happiness that she's been longing for her entire life. And I hope that she can hold on to it 'cause it's not easy to find. You two know that. You know, despite all the-- the feelings of mistrust, the pain, and... feelings of betrayal, you're happiest when you're with liam and the kids. Don't lose sight of that.
Hope: Well, he's not wrong. I am filled with joy when I'm surrounded by our children... and when I'm with you.
Liam: See, that--I just--I-- I just want you to be happy again. I'm so sorry I took that away from you. I-- I believe that we can have it back if-- if you let me earn your trust, but, in the meantime, I just-- I--I don't know. I--I-- I'm gonna do everything possible to hold us together. I betrayed you. There's no excuse for that. I--I don't have one. All I can do is--is show you with my actions that it's never gonna happen again. I--I still--I--I still believe that I can be the husband that you deserve, hope. I--I just-- I need you to give me the chance to prove it.
Finn: Your dad didn't have to leave.
Steffy: He wanted to give us time alone.
Finn: He's protective of you. He's very proud of his daughter.
Steffy: Yeah. My father is incredibly supportive. He may be a little biased sometimes but, uh...
Finn: Yeah, I don't blame him. I mean, I'd probably be the same way with my daughter.
Steffy: [ Chuckles ] He's my biggest advocate, and he knows me better than just about anyone.
Finn: Yeah, ridge is a good man. I can see why you guys are so close. And, honestly, it's-- it's comforting knowing that he's rooting for us.
Steffy: He really is. He knows how much you mean to me. He knows what I want my future to look like. And that's with you, finn. The two of us holding this child in our arms.
Finn: I wish for that too, steffy. More than I can say.
Steffy: Finn, despite what happens, I wanna be with you, okay? I want you to know that. Despite the test results. I don't care. I want you. And I know there's so much riding on this paternity test, but just know that. I don't wanna pressure you in any way. I don't want you to...
Finn: I don't feel pressure. I'm with you because I choose to be. I'm here because I choose you, steffy. I want out life together. No matter how... unpredictable and crazy it might get here on out, okay? I'm gonna roll with it. Because that's what people do when they love each other. They stick together. And I'm sticking with you.
Steffy: [ Chuckles ]
Finn: [ Chuckles ]
