Steffy: Is finn the father of my baby?
Hope: Please tell us that his dna is a match.
Finn: That's what you're about to tell us, right? It's me. I'm the father?
Thomas: Do you think they know yet? Who the father is.
Ridge: Nothing yet.
Thomas: God, it's gotta be nerve-racking, all four of 'em just waiting to hear.
Brooke: So much on the line.
Ridge: Steffy is convinced it's finn's, so...
Brooke: Better be.
Thomas: That would be best so they could move on with their lives. And I think that you two should enjoy that as well.
Ridge: Enjoy what?
Thomas: Moving on with your lives without me.
Ridge: Are you dying?
Thomas: No. I'm not dying. Um, I just think it's probably time for me to move out.
Brooke: Are you sure you're ready?
Thomas: I am. I promise. And not just physically.
Ridge: Well, I have seen some incredible changes in you.
Thomas: Thanks, dad. I'll...definitely need that to happen. Things went bad for a while, but, uh, I'm feeling better now, and that's a really good thing because douglas needs me. He needs a healthy father who's focused. And it'll feel good to step up in the family. Couldn't come at a better time. I mean, steffy might need me, depending on how this paternity test turns out. I can be there and help her bring this, uh, newest little forrester into the world.
Brooke: A little forrester... whose last name better be finnegan.
Brooke: That's what I'm praying for-- that steffy's carrying finn's child.
Ridge: See, I didn't even wanna think about the alternative. Nobody wants liam to be the father. Right, thomas?
Dr. Campbell: I realize you all are anxious to hear the results.
Hope: You have no idea.
Dr. Campbell: It's a tense and stressful time. As steffy's physician, I wanna make sure that everyone here is committed to her health as well as the child's regardless of who the father is.
Liam: Yeah. No, of course.
Finn: That goes without saying.
Hope: This test, how accurate is it?
Dr. Campbell: Very. 99%.
Steffy: So which is it? Do the samples match? It has to be finn'S.
Dr. Campbell: Unfortunately, no.
Dr. Campbell: Finn is not a match. He's not the father of your baby.
Steffy: No, no, no. That can't be right. It has to be finn'S.
Dr. Campbell: I know how much you are all counting on that.
Steffy: But I felt it. No, I knew. I knew. Age-related macular degeneration may lead to severe vision loss.
Thomas: Look, it might not be the easiest thing for either one of you to believe after everything I've done in the past, but... I do want hope to be happy. I want steffy to be happy, too. And that means them having the families that they fought so hard to have. And the only way for that to happen is for finn to be the father of that kid.
Brooke: But if he's not? If liam is the father, you wouldn't see this as some sort of opportunity, would you?
Thomas: Opportunity to manipulate hope? No. Brooke, look, I learned from my mistakes.
Ridge: I think you have learned.
Brooke: That's good news. Good to hear. Now, if we could just have good news about something else, maybe I could relax a little bit. Anything?
Ridge: No. But who knows. Maybe the doctor's late or they're out celebrating already.
Brooke: Oh, I don't know. It just feels like it's the opposite.
Ridge: You know what I think? I think we should go home. That way when hope and liam get back there, we'll be close, and you can be there for your daughter whatever happens.
Brooke: I'd like that.
Ridge: Come on.
Thomas: Hey, if you-- if you hear anything...
Ridge: Let you know.
Brooke: Keep positive thoughts.
Thomas: I will. Hey, dad.
Thomas: I am gonna keep making you proud.
Ridge: I don't doubt that.
Vinny: Hey, mr. F. Thomas around?
Ridge: Vinny. Yeah. He's in there.
Ridge: Good seeing you.
Thomas: Hey, vinny. How's it going?
Vinny: Oh, man. I've been so busy, but I'm trying to be better about checking in on you, so...
Thomas: Um, I'm good. So, um, why are you so busy?
Vinny: This job I got, man-- let me just say you're lucky you only got one job. They make me clock in. They tell me when my lunch break is. I've never had anything like this. It's ridiculous. But enough about my troubles. You got...something going on? What's up, man?
Thomas: It's nothing.
Vinny: Yeah, 'cause you're more tense than when catch me eating your leftovers when we lived together, man.
Thomas: Yeah, this is, um-- it's a little more important than leftovers.
Vinny: So it is something then.
Thomas: Yeah. So, um, you know I told you that steffy's pregnant.
Thomas: Well, she's getting the paternity results today. She's there at the hospital right now with finn, and hope and liam are there, too. They're gonna find out who the father is today.
Steffy: No, no. It can't be. Something's wrong. The test is wrong.
Dr. Campbell: I can assure you--
Steffy: Please, just run it again.
Dr. Campbell: Steffy--
Steffy: Please. Do it.
Dr. Campbell: The test is accurate. I'll give you a little privacy to talk things out. I wish this could have turned out the way you wanted. When this baby is born and the four of you see it for the first time and hold it, I am confident that the confusion and the shock that you feel today will easily fade away.
Steffy: It can't be.
Finn: Okay. Well, um, now we know.
Hope: Yes, we do. One night.
[Sniffles] One night, and now this. You two. Another child.
Liam: Hey, hope. Hope. Hope, hold on. Hold on.
Steffy: I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. Ready to blow away the rules of volume?
Brooke: Maybe we should've gone to the hospital.
Ridge: I think there's enough tension there without us.
Brooke: I know. But I'm just so worried.
Ridge: I am, too. I think our kids are gonna be okay whatever happens.
Brooke: This has to be finn's baby. I can't even imagine it being liam's, not after what liam and hope have been through already.
Ridge: Steffy moved on. You know, she finally found a way to get over liam, and I was proud of her. She had a life with finn. For the first time in a long time, our kids had peace.
Brooke: And to keep that peace, we need the paternity test to turn out the way we want it, too.
Vinny: Oh, man. No wonder you're so tense. It's a big day for your sister, huh?
Thomas: It's huge. It affects her entire future.
Vinny: Yours, too, doesn't it?
Thomas: Only in that I don't want hope or steffy hurt by this.
Vinny: You know what I'm talking about. If liam is the father of steffy's kid, then that's an opening for you.
Thomas: No. That's-- don't even suggest that.
Vinny: Why not?
Thomas: Because that would kill hope.
Vinny: Yeah, and then you'd be there to pick up the pieces. Wink, wink.
Thomas: Don't even say it.
Vinny: Look, you love hope, don't you?
Thomas: Of course. That's why I want the baby to be finn's because then hope would have everything that she wanted. And you know what? Working together on the line and co-parenting, maybe that'll be enough.
Vinny: It won't be.
Thomas: It has to be.
Vinny: Thomas, how long have I known you?
Thomas: My entire life.
Vinny: Yeah. And in all that time, how many women have I seen come and go in your life? And out of all of 'em, you haven't had feelings for any of 'em, not like you do for hope. No one even comes close. You know this.
Finn: When is kelly gonna be home?
Steffy: Huh? Uh... amelia won't bring her back for a few hours. I don't want her to see me like this.
Finn: Well, I can be gone by then if you want.
Steffy: But I don't want you to leave. I mean, if that's what you need, then, um...
Finn: I don't know. I don't know what I need.
Steffy: I know how much you were looking forward to...
Finn: Yeah, I'd already thought of her as mine. I... had already fallen in love. You know? But... it's liam'S. It's--it's liam'S.
Liam: Hope? Hey. Hope? Listen. You... we have to be able to talk about this.
Hope: I can't talk about this right now. Okay? I can'T. It's too much.
Liam: I--I get it. It's a lot for me, too, but our marriage, our family, everything is riding on this.
Hope: Family? Our family? That is--that's what I said at the hospital. That I was willing to try to keep our family intact for the children, for us. I said I was willing to turn to another page, to forgive and forget and to start a new chapter for our family.
Liam: I want that, too, hope. That's what I want.
Hope: That's impossible now. Everything has changed, liam. Our family will never be the same... now that you're having another child with steffy.
If you have postmenopausal
Ridge: Well, there is one good thing about this experience.
Ridge: We're not arguing about our kids anymore. Whatever happens, we'll get through it, together.
Brooke: I wouldn't have it any other way.
Vinny: Look... you know how much I respect you, thomas, and I respect how much you're trying to be a new man,
Thomas: Not "trying." I am a new man, vinny. I am.
Vinny: Cool, I--I get it. Y-you're a new man, but, there's only so much somebody can change about themself and the way you feel about hope, man, just know that I am here for you and there's nothing in the world I won't do for you. You gotta remember, man, where there's a will, there is a way.
Steffy: Finn, talk to me. Tell me what you're feeling.
Finn: I'm feeling love, obviously, for you, and for the...child I almost had. I was just really excited. I was so ready. Seeing you with kelly, the kind of mother you are, and the kind of example you set. You're--you're so kind and you're so strong and... the bond that you two have. It... it inspires me. I wanted to have that kind of bond, too.
Steffy: [Inhales shakily]
Finn: You know, a child of my own to hold in my arms and...feel their breath and her...fall asleep... on me. And it would be with a woman that I find just...remarkable. But it's not gonna be that way. You're having a baby with liam. Again. And I just... I don't know how I fit in.
Steffy: What? As my partner.
Finn: Look, I--
Steffy: As the man I love.
Finn: Yeah, I know. I know how you feel about me. I know we could have an amazing future.
Steffy: Yes, we can.
Finn: Two kids, steffy? Two of them?
Steffy: Well, it-- it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter, finn. I want you.
Finn: I want you, too. All I've ever wanted was a life with you. You know, I thought I had finally broken you out of that awful cycle with liam and hope. I was trying to take it to a new place.
Finn: You have. You have. Liam is my past. You are my future. Please don't give up on me.
Finn: That's the last thing that I want to do. Ever since I looked into your eyes and I saw that beautiful smile, all I-- all I've ever thought about was a future with you. There's no one like you, steffy. There's no one.
Steffy: [Sniffles] Well, if you mean that, if you honestly mean that and you're willing to accept what happened and you're willing to accept the situation, then we can stay together. Because finn, I can't lose you. I don't want to lose you.
Hope: How is this happening?
Liam: 'Cause I screwed up.
Hope: We went through hell to get our life back. Everything we went through, losing beth, all of those months of mourning her, and then to have her finally come home, it was a miracle. We had our chance. We had our family, and then you...
Liam: I know.
Liam: I know. I'm sorry.
Hope: I'm sorry. I'm sorry that I trusted my heart to a man who would think so lowly of me that I would betray him with a man who...
Liam: I know, I know that-- I know that it's absurd. I know that. But I-- I don't know what to say. I--I-- I saw you.
Hope: That wasn't me.
Liam: And I didn't know that.
Hope: Do you know how hurtful that is to hear? That you didn't know? That you didn't even try to come to me for the answers? And you know what? That hurts almost as much as knowing that you would give up on me so easily and jump into bed with steffy.
Liam: I'm not giving up. Hope, I'm not giving up, and neither should you. I'm a fool, but that doesn't mean it's too late for us.
Hope: Well, steffy is pregnant again with your child and maybe that, that is what you really want.
Liam: That's not what I want! Hope, I want this. I want this! I want you, I want this house, I want our family, I want the kids! And I've worked too damn hard to make that happen! I'm not giving it up now!
Hope: Steffy is pregnant with your child.
Liam: Yes. Steffy is pregnant with my child, but that doesn't mean our marriage has to end... because I love you. Because I always have. And I always will.
