Episode #8475 ~ Thomas's suspicion grows as Vinny doubles down on his claim about Steffy's paternity test. Zoe verbally attacks Paris.

Provided By Suzanne

Thomas: I'm not leaving this lab until I see some proof.

Vinny: You have proof. Liam is the father, not finn.

Thomas: I wanna see it for myself, okay? So, log in.

Vinny: No. No way, man. I'd get in a buttload of trouble.

Thomas: I'm not letting this go, vinny. Too many lives have been affected, mine included.

Vinny: Yeah. You finally have a chance with hope, and a damn good one this time. But for some reason, you seem determined to blow it. Just leave it alone, will you?

Thomas: I would. I would leave it alone, okay? Uh, if--if I had just a little bit of proof that you didn't mess with the paternity test, okay? So, just log in. Show me, uh, and then, you're off the hook. Or maybe not, depending on how that turns out. But either way, I'm getting to the bottom of this, right here and right now.

Ridge: We need to narrow our choices for showstoppers. It's a nice problem to have. Zende and thomas, they come up with some really cool stuff. I'm leaning towards this one, better hope likes that. What do you think?

Steffy: You want me to be the tiebreaker? I've already upset hope enough as it is. Ooh. Oh.

Ridge: Are you okay?

Steffy: Uh, yeah, yeah. I think I--like, I felt a little flutter or a kick, or something.

Ridge: Really?

Steffy: Yeah. Seems a little early, but, you know, this is my second pregnancy. Wow.

[ Door opens ]

Finn: What's going on?

Ridge: We have a bit of a dilemma, trying to decide if my grandchild should play for bayern munich or for milan.

Steffy: [ Laughs ] I think I might have felt a little flutter.

Finn: Oh. Well, it sounds like when I first saw you.

Steffy: Hmm.

Paris: You want me to leave?

Zoe: Yeah. But don't worry. I'll make your goodbyes easy this time. All you need to do is email ridge your resignation.

Paris: You're-- you're serious.

Zoe: I've been serious, ever since I told you to leave in the first place. But somehow, you've just managed to stay anyway. Well, not this time. Okay? You've done way too much damage.

Paris: Okay. Zoe, listen. I understand you're upset, but--

Zoe: Paris, I am so far from upset, he called off our engagement. Carter dumped me.

Paris: I'm really sorry.

Zoe: No. I don't wanna hear-- I don't wanna hear the concerns. I don't want anything from you, especially after what you've done. You need to leave. Now.

Paris: You're hurting. That's why you're saying the things you're saying to me. But we're still sisters, even when we're not getting along. Uh, I--I love you, zoe. I mean, uh, let me talk to carter. Maybe there's something I can do.

Zoe: Okay. You didn't see him, paris. I don't think he's changing his mind.

Paris: So, carter took his ring back.

Zoe: Yeah, he did. I mean, he did say that I could keep it, but what's the point? I mean, it's not like we're gonna be a couple again. And it's all because of you, paris, because you couldn't just mind your own business for once. Seriously, I--I don't get it. Why can't you just stay away from me? Let me be happy... for once.

Ridge: You always bring a smile to my daughter's face. I'm glad you're in her life.

Finn: Well, there's no other place I'd rather be. Besides, it's reciprocal. Steffy always brings a smile to my face, too. Well, almost always. But, hey, no one's perfect.

Steffy: Says who?

Finn: You are right. You are perfect.

Steffy: [ Laughs ]

Finn: You're perfect for me.

Ridge: Really?

Finn: [ Laughs ]

Ridge: If this is what you do in front of me, I can just imagine...

Steffy: Dad.

Ridge: Nice, real nice.

Steffy: Stop being weird. Oh, my god.

Vinny: Look, man. Uh, I got to get back to work. If I fall any more behind, I'm gonna lose my job, okay?

Thomas: Let me see steffy's paternity test results.

Vinny: Bro, they're confidential. The doctor already reviewed and confirmed to steffy that liam is the father. Besides, if you saw him, you wouldn't even know what you're looking at anyway.

Thomas: But you do.

Vinny: Yes. I work here.

Thomas: Exactly. You have the access and the know-how to change the results. Did you do it, vinny? Answer me. Why walgreens?

Zoe: I begged carter not to let this be the end. I mean, he--he loves me. I--I know that he does. He just--he can't stop thinking about zende and me, even though nothing happened.

Paris: Well, what-- what can I do to help?

Zoe: No. I don't want your help. I just want you to listen to me for once, and stay out of my life.

Paris: You don't mean that.

Zoe: Here's the thing, paris. Sisters don't backstab and betray each other the way that you did to me. You need to leave. Find a life away from me.

Finn: I--I--I-- I mean, both of these are-- are beautiful. But, um, there is something really special about this one.

Steffy: Oh, that's-- that's thomas's design.

Finn: Uh, well, I mean, your brother's super talented. But I mean, again, there's zende.

Steffy: You're not making it easy to decide which one to go with.

Finn: Well, isn't this hope's decision anyway? It's-- it's, uh, her line in fashion show, right?

Ridge: Uh, we're just trying to narrow down the choices. What do you think?

Finn: Well, since, uh, I'm--I'm a doctor, ridge, I'm--I'm not a designer.

Steffy: But you know what you like.

Finn: Yes, I do. I'm looking at her.

Ridge: You're not a designer. You're not a poet either. Listen, you had me at hello, you're fine. Look, you're a good-looking guy. You come in here. She likes you. And then, it just gets a little cheesy, just say you appreciate her. That's okay.

Finn: I do. I appreciate everything about steffy, her intelligence, her beauty, her strength. But what I especially appreciate is what an exceptional mother she is, and mother-to-be.

Steffy: Yeah. I'm gonna love this kid no matter what.

[ Sighs ] I just wish the circumstances were different. If only they were different.

Vinny: Dude, we've been through this already. I told you, paternity tests don't lie. It's science.

Thomas: And I told you, steffy felt like that baby was finn'S.

Vinny: Well, it's not how it turned out, is it? Sheesh.

Thomas: Okay, vinny. Look, I wanna believe you. I do. Uh, and to think about the fact that you could do something so extreme, so awful. But think about it. If you did change the results, how many lives would be affected by that, steffy's and liam's, and finn's, and hope's, and not to mention that innocent little child'S.

Vinny: You got to chill out, all right? Put all these crazy questions out of your head. Liam is the father. It's what the test said. It's how it is. You, getting all worked up like this, is not gonna change that. So, just relax, okay? Everything's cool. I promise. Struggling to manage my type 2 diabetes

Finn: I really felt like it was our child, too. But, you know, sometimes feelings don't match reality, no matter how much we want them to.

Steffy: I know. I was so sure. Like, I really felt it. It was more like, more than a maternal instinct. It was something deeper. I don't know. I-- I can't really put it into words. But when dr. Campbell told us the results, like, it felt wrong. It did not seem real at all. Like, I--I don't know. It doesn't make sense. But it just...

Ridge: It doesn't have to make sense, honey. Just saying how it was for you.

Steffy: It still is. I wake up every morning, and this baby still feels like yours, finn. I don't think that's ever gonna go away, despite the paternity test results.

Finn: Listen, I--I understand your hurt and your disappointment.

Ridge: Well, we all understand that. But, honey, you got a job to do. There's a new life on its way. There's a little baby coming. And he or she needs you to be strong and focused. And maybe, yes, this is not the father you wanted. But finn's right here. He's not going anywhere.

Finn: Not a chance. Look, I may not have fathered this child, but I'm gonna be there to help raise it, and love it, as if I had. And, no, this is-- this is not what we planned. But the results, they are what they are. They're not wrong, steffy. Uh, a dna paternity test is almost always a hundred percent accurate.

Thomas: I'll tell you one thing. You can be convincing when you wanna be. But why should I be surprised? I mean, you have been talking your way out of things since we were kids.

Vinny: Oh, you know, you are pretty good at it, too, man.

Thomas: Nothing like you. You're the master.

Vinny: So, does that mean we're gonna drop this? Because you really should. Nothing's gonna come off it. You're realizing that, right? This whole "vinny changed the lab test results", it's--it's a dead end. Okay. All right. Are we back to being best buds, yeah? Put all this behind us. Forget like it ever happened. Hell, I already have. No memory here. All right. When I'm off work, what do you say we go grab some beers, shoot some pool, or, uh, whatever you wanna do? Just no more of this family stuff, please.

Thomas: Family stuff?

Vinny: Look, we might be cool, but, uh, I know you too well. This steffy having liam's baby thing is gonna be gnawing at you whole night. One last word of advice though. If hope does leave liam once steffy has the baby, just don't feel guilty. It's your time, man. You deserve this. You've waited long enough for her.

Zoe: You'd feel the same way if I did to you what you did to me.

Paris: Oh. You keep saying that like I purposely wrecked things.

Zoe: Paris, you're always in my business. That's actually one of the reasons why I left home, and came to la in the first place. To get away from all of that. Have a fresh start. And, yeah, yeah, there's been a few bumps along the way, but I landed on my feet, and I made a name for myself. I--I--I--I-- I started dating carter. We got engaged. And, yeah, I--I will admit. I--I wanted to find out where things could go with zende. But that doesn't mean that my feelings for carter weren't real. I would never even accepted his proposal if I didn't love him. But that doesn't matter anymore because it's gone. And you did nothing to stop it from happening.

Paris: Zoe, that's just not true.

Zoe: Oh, just stop because I know what I know. You are so happy that this is exactly how it turned out. And that's why you-- you didn't even try to stop ridge from finding me with zende, because you knew when he did, it would just be the beginning of the end of my relationship with carter. And it was. I lost this amazing man who was ready to give me this beautiful life with him. So, I'm sorry, paris, if I just don't wanna sit around, and see how else you'll mess up my future for me. I am dead serious. Pack your bags and go.

Zoe: Will you just go already?

Paris: No.

Zoe: What do you mean no? Paris, I told you.

Paris: I know what you told me. But I'm not going anywhere. I'm tired of being pushed around by you, zoe. You've been doing that to me my whole life. So, no more.

Zoe: Wow. Are you being serious?

Paris: You wanna know just how serious I am? I'm about to tell you some things you're not gonna like, but that doesn't make them any less true. The reason you're suffering right now is because the consequences of your own actions. You lost carter because of the way you treated him, how you disrespected his love and commitment, so you need to stop blaming me, and take responsibility. And who knows? Maybe this will teach you how to make better choices in the future, how to not be so self-centered.

Zoe: Did you really just say that?

Paris: And you know what? I really wanted us to get close. I wanted us to have that sister relationship that we're supposed to have. But if you think that I'm gonna throw away my happiness because you're upset with me, I have a wonderful job, a job that challenges me, and motivates me. I get to make a difference in people's lives. And I'm not gonna give that up. And I'm not gonna give up zende either. Not when I finally have the chance to have a meaningful relationship with an incredible guy. You tried to force me out of forrester's before. And like you said, it didn't happen. And it's not happening now. I'm not just your little sister anymore, zoe. I'm a grown woman. And I will make the decisions for my life, and my future. Not you.

Ridge: And, um, I'm sorry finn had to go back to the hospital. I know how much you like hanging out with him.

Steffy: He changed my life in the most amazing ways. And I thought I changed his in an amazing way too, by giving him a child, but obviously, it's not meant to be.

Thomas: I wanna believe you. I do. But every time you go off on how hope and i should be together, or how I "deserve" this, it makes me think you're not being straight with me.

Vinny: Do you not love hope? Does douglas not love her? Are you telling me you wouldn't love the three of you to be a family, that she's not the love of your life? Are you really gonna stand there and deny what we both know is true?

Thomas: I'm not denying any of that. But hope is with liam.

Vinny: Well, I got news for you, buddy. She won't be, once steffy pops out another one of waffle man's kids. Stop fighting this, please. Just go do what makes you happy. Go be with hope.

Thomas: Yeah, I know you really well, vinny. And you have justified peddling drugs. You've justified a lot of things. And I think you might be justifying changing steffy's paternity test results. Did you do it, vinny? Are you robbing finn of their child?

Vinny: Okay. Enough, enough. I don't wanna listen to this anymore. But what kind of a way is this to talk to your best friend? Uh, you know what? What if I did handle these results? Somehow, I changed the test results. Would you really go and tell steffy and hope? You would blow the best chance you've ever had at being with hope.

Thomas: How many times do I have to say this? I'm not that guy anymore. I don't want hope that way. Now, you always said you'd do anything for me.

Vinny: Yeah. And I would, man.

Thomas: Okay. So, no lies, no more justifications. Vinny, did you or did you not change steffy's paternity test results? Did you or did you not make it look like it's liam's baby, when actually it's finn's?

[ Door opens ]

Finn: I'd like an answer to that, too. The truth, vinny. I'm a doctor at this hospital. If you interfered with the result of that paternity test, I will find out. So, why don't you come clean right now? Is thomas right? Could I be the father of steffy's baby?
