Provided By Suzanne

Liam: Hope, it kind of, um, it kind of sounds like you've made a decision about our future. Uh, I mean, I'm--I'm hoping you're gonna tell me you want to stay together and work on our marriage.

Hope: I would like to but it's not about what I want. It's about what I can allow myself to emotionally take on.

Liam: I mean, that's the point of marriage, right? Is you don't have to take it on alone. I'm--I'm there with you, for better or worse, right? Obviously I've swung us to the worst side of things, but better is out there just waiting for us. All we have to do is-- is wanna face it together, wanna move forward together.

Hope: Which is exactly why I wanted to talk. It's time for us to find stability. It's time for us to move forward.

Liam: Together, right? Hope? Move forward together, that's what you mean, right?

Ridge: Hey.

Thomas: Hey.

Ridge: Let me see that. How did you get so much work done? I was only gone for a minute.

Thomas: Well, you remember when I said, uh, it hadn't come alive yet? Well, life was found.

Ridge: I'll say I like seeing you like this, energized and focused.

Thomas: Yeah, well, you know, I don't think me being focused was ever the problem. The problem lies with me being focused on the wrong thing or the wrong person.

Ridge: And you're being honest with me, right? All this, all your changes, it's all about the line, not hope herself.

Thomas: Yes, dad, I know I'm not going to be with hope and I've made peace with that. I really have.

Wyatt: Let me just check& in here real quick. What is this, the quiet reflection hour?

Bill: Not anymore.

Wyatt: [ Laughs ] On your own time, knucklehead. I got a business to run. I mean, it'd be one thing if I paid you to daydream, but this is just a little excessive--

Flo: Uh, wyatt, wyatt. I think maybe just, um...

Wyatt: Oh, right. You do pay me? Go ahead, daydream away, have fun. What? What's wrong?

Bill: I'm worried about your brother.

Wyatt: Oh, great. All right. What's going on? I mean, last time I talked to liam, he--he was a little down.

Flo: But you did say that he didn't seem like he was on a place where he was gonna give up though, right?

Wyatt: No. No. Definitely not. I mean, he was realistic about everything. He--he knows hope might not be able to forgive him. Is that--is that what's going on here, dad?

Brooke: I'm glad to hear you say that.

Thomas: Hey, look at you, you look so pretty.

Ridge: Well, it's all true.

Brooke: Well, I hope so. Especially now.

Ridge: Especially now? What does that mean? What's going on?

Brooke: Hope is having liam come to the cabin. I think she's made a decision about their future.

Hope: No matter what, we move forward together, liam, I mean, we have to for beth. Married or not, we will always be parents to her.

Liam: Yes. And I'm grateful every day to--to be raising her with such as loving, devoted mother. But as much as beth has brought to our lives, as--as much as it means to us to be her parents. Our relationship goes deeper than that. I mean, we're not just mom and dad, are we? Like one day, beth and douglas are gonna be growing and out of the house and it's--and it's gonna be you and me again, right? At least that's what I hope. I--I hope that you want to stay on this journey with me. That you wanna stay together.

Hope: Please know how... grateful I am for the life we have together. We are a beautiful family and the future we were working toward, but what we've been building has cracks in the foundation. And it's not working as well as we hoped it would. And I think you know that, liam. I think you know it isn't right. I can't do it anymore. Not like this. The chicken or the egg.

Wyatt: I don't know. I--I think that it's a good sign that hope called liam wanting to talk.

Bill: Well, let's hope so, mister cup half full.

Wyatt: Thank you. There's no reason to think the worst.

Flo: Oh, plus you do have to consider that how those two feel about each other. I mean, yes, she was hurt and she feels betrayed, but--

Bill: No, no, no, no. No, not--not feels betrayed. She was betrayed.

Wyatt: Uh-hmm.

Bill: That's all because of that--that twisted freak thomas and his love affair with a mannequin. I'm not saying liam didn't do wrong, all right. He did. He messed up. He shouldn't have turned to steffy that night, but he shouldn't lose his marriage over it. His family.

Thomas: So you don't know yet what hope decided?

Brooke: No, I don'T. But I do hope that she can forgive liam. And that's what I encouraged her to do anyway. I reminded her of everything that she created, her wonderful family. I just don't want to see her give that up.

Ridge: But it is her decision.

Brooke: Yes, but it would be a mistake.

Ridge: Her mistake to make.

Brooke: Right, that's true. Only she could decide. She's the one who has to make that call.

Thomas: Well, if she's ready to make that call?

Ridge: Well, she must be if she summoned liam.

Thomas: So they're over there right now at the cabin?

Ridge: You're not thinking of going over there, right?

Thomas: No, I'm thinking about hope. I mean, whether she wants to call things off or forgive liam, either way, this has got to be preally difficult for her.

Liam: Hope, please don't do this. What--whatever you're about to say. I hurt you tremendously. And I know that and it's easy to understand why you think this isn't working. I mean, especially if I ran to steffy the way that I did instead of confronting you. But that's it, right? I need help. I need help. I need to--I need to learn how to communicate better, how to--how to listen better. I need to face conflict more responsibly, more lovingly because running away the way I did, it--it wasn't right. And that's-- that is the only reason I know that you running away wouldn't be right either. It's hard and I know it's hard because I'm the one making it hard. But if there is any chance of you forgiving me one day--

Hope: I want to. I don't want it to be like this. I--I want the day to come where I can look at you and I don't see your night with steffy. Where I can look at you and I don't just see betrayal. God, I hope you know how much I want that.

Liam: I do, and you're right. And--and the only reason we're in this position is because I put us here. And--and I want us to move forward but not apart, hope. Not--never apart. If we're gonna move forward, we have to move forward together because if we're not moving forward together, then it just feels like... moving backwards.


Wyatt: Liam's gonna be fine no matter what hope decides.

Bill: What--what? Make up your mind flip-flopper?

Wyatt: What?

Bill: Well, one second you're mister glass half full, the next second, "it can go either way."

Wyatt: No, I'm--I'm saying that they're gonna be fine either way. Not--not that-- not that it can go any other way, but forgiveness. Hope and liam have been through a lot together, too much to-- to just give up over some horrible misunderstanding.

Brooke: I'm impressed with you, thomas?

Thomas: If I have an agenda in all this, it's for hope to be happy. If not, I hope she has the strength to walk away. Either way, I support her, whatever decision she makes. And the best way for me to support her right now is to support hope for the future. So, uh, I'm gonna get back to work and check on that shipment.

Ridge: We'll let you know if we hear something.

Thomas: Please do.

Ridge: It's progress, right?

Brooke: Yeah, seems so. I'm actually kind of jealous, the way he made it seem so easy.

Ridge: Easy in what way?

Brooke: Oh, how he'll be supportive of hope no matter what she decides. And of course, I'm going to do that for her too, ridge. It's just I feel horrible, if she decides to just give up on her relationship altogether because of that one awful night. She can'T. She has to forgive liam.

Hope: I can't hear you say these things anymore, liam. All your talk about our future, our path forward.

Liam: I--I know, but... I don't know what to tell you. Uh, I'll never stop believing in us. I mean, I just know, I just know without a doubt that our--our marriage and our family is worth fighting for. You just have--you just have to give me a chance to prove that I'm worth it. Hope, I--I can't even picture my life without you.

Hope: I am so grateful that you are fighting so, so hard for us. But I can't do it anymore. I'm tired. And I need some space, and I need time to process all of this. Liam... I want a separation. I'm not certain of anything. I'm just--I just know that I don't--I don't know how to do this anymore. I don't even know if we're meant to be together forever. Maybe we're just meant to have our best and not--

Liam: And what? Have our beth and--and-- and what? Give up? After everything we've been through. After the blood, the sweat, and the tears? We thought she was dead. We thought our daughter was dead and--and--and that we lost her. We--we endured that together and then on the other side, we got her back. We got our life back. I mean, it--it made us stronger in the end, hope, just like every obstacle that we've ever faced has made us stronger. And this is not going to be any different, I hope. I--I really... I really hope.

Hope: So do I, liam. So do I. Alright, I brought in ensure max protein...

Ridge: You have to remember how strong hope is and trust that she's gonna make the right decision.

Brooke: I know. I know and I'm trying. I just know that she's hurting and her pain could cloud her judgment. And if it's the right choice to stay with liam and work things out, and I believe it is, her emotions may not let her see that. I just don't want her to forget everything that she created, what she has. She has a wonderful marriage, a wonderful family, kids. I really just want to see her keep her family intact.

Liam: If you're hoping too, does that mean you're not ready to close the door on us?

Hope: I'm not sure what it means.

Liam: Okay. I can respect that. Please do not forget everything that we've already overcome though.

Hope: I haven't forgotten. All of the adversity we've been through. It--it brought us closer together. I wish it could be the same for this. Please know that.

Liam: I do, but... more important than remembering all the obstacles we've overcome is remembering the good stuff, right? I--I--I've caused you pain, but we've also shared so many happy moments. The--the--the good outweighs the bad, doesn't it?

Hope: I think about the good times, every day. Some of the best moments of my life happened with you.

I want it perfect

Hope: Yes. Yes, I'm--I'm marrying you.

Liam: Really?

I want it true

I wanna give all

that this world has to offer

I'll give that

to you

and I need

to be honest

and I need

to be real

no matter how hard

that I try

it's all that I feel

Liam: I love you.

Hope: I love you.

Nothing's the same

since you

changed me

all of this time

that my heart lost its mind

you're the one

the one I was waiting for

Liam: And we have even greater moments to come, hope. I know that.

Hope: [ Sobs ] I will always love you. Goodbye, liam.

Liam: For now? Goodbye for now?

Hope: [ Sobs ]
