Brooke: I don't wanna hold you up, honey. I'm sure you're anxious to get home.
Hope: Uh, I am, but I--I have a minute. What's up?
Brooke: Just catching up. I wanted to give you and liam some privacy.
Hope: [ Laughs ] We do appreciate that.
Brooke: So, I guess the smile means everything is going well?
Hope: Beth and douglas are overjoyed to have liam back, I mean every dinner is like a little celebration.
Brooke: And you're happy, obviously.
Hope: Having liam home has been wonderful. You know, he's been
atttive and cing. And of total forgiveness, that's still going to take time but... you know, it's a process for both of us.
Brooke: What do you mean?
Hope: Oh, liam is struggling with what he did. You know, I-- I know he regrets it, but I think that night is still haunting him.
[ Phone rings ]
Liam: Hey, dad, I can't really talk right now.
Bill: Why? Is baker there?
Liam: Bake? No. Why? I'm--no, I'm just planning an evening for me and hope at home.
Bill: Oh, well good. That's great. I'm glad to hear that.
Liam: Yeah, I was really psyched about it until you brought up baker.
Bill: Forget it, okay? I--I didn't mean to kill your buzz. Just stay focus on hope. Poison what is standing right there in front of you. You're back with hope, you have your family. All good things are happening for you.
Liam: Yeah, and I don't deserve any of them.
Bill: You deserve every single one of them.
Liam: Dad, I still killed a man. Okay? Vinny is still dead because of me. Now, I can-- I can try to move on with my life, but I can't just pretend that it didn't happen.
Bill: That's exactly what you have to do. You can't tell anyone, liam. You certainly can't tell hope.
Liam: Hey, uh, dad, hope is gonna be home soon, so I gotta go. Okay? I gotta go.
Bill: Liam! Liam!
Ridge: Did you get to talk to hope?
Brooke: Yeah. Yeah, you just missed her actually. She was excited to get home to liam.
Ridge: You sound pretty excited, too.
Brooke: I am. I'm excited and relieved. You know, what liam did was horrible, ridge. But I--I never doubted my daughter's love for him or his love for her. I just wasn't sure if it was strong enough to get them through.
Ridge: Well, not every couple can be us.
Brooke: We certainly know how to weather a storm. And I just had to be there for hope, you know, and support her as-- as much as possible without overstepping. But she needed to forgive on her own.
Ridge: And you think she has?
Brooke: I know they're both very committed to making this work, to having a life together, their family. And after everything they've been through, it's really beautiful to see.
Liam: Welcome home.
Hope: What is all this?
Liam: I just-- I figure we've gotten plenty of time to reconnect with the kids, but not so much to reconnect as a couple.
Hope: So the kids aren't here?
Liam: No, douglas is with thomas and beth and donna are having a sleepover.
Hope: Well, that was very thoughtful. I was actually just telling my mom--
Liam: No, we can talk about your mom, and work, and all that stuff later. But I think tonight should just be about us. I think we owe ourselves some time alone, don't you?
[ Glass clanks ]
Hope: Sounds like a plan to me.
[ Laughs ] Feeling stressed in your skin?
Ridge: So, this is it, she's gonna hit the reset button and everything is back to normal.
Brooke: Or a step in the right direction.
Ridge: That would be great.
Brooke: The last mile of the marathon is always hardest.
Ridge: Yeah. Kinda seems like liam is running uphill with his shoes tied together.
Brooke: I just kept telling hope to keep her heart open.
Ridge: I know. Looks like she took your advice.
Brooke: They do need each other, ridge. And tonight could be the night when they finally truly reunite.
Bill: Is that what I asked for? I pay you to crunch numbers. Not give me your opinion on them. Send it again.
Wyatt: Okay. Wow. Uh, I can come back.
Bill: And I don't need your opinion either, smart guy.
Wyatt: It's nice to see you, too, dad. Uh, if you need a minute--
Bill: Why would I need a minute?
Wyatt: Because it seem a little riled up.
Bill: What do you want, wyatt?
Wyatt: What do I want? Honestly? I wanna know what the hell is going on with you. Because this testy mood of yours isn't getting any better.
Bill: I'm not testy.
Wyatt: The way you said testy was testy, okay? I'm not kidding around anymore. I'm actually concerned.
Bill: You don't have to be.
Wyatt: Because there's nothing to be concerned about or because you don't want to tell me? Because obviously there's something going on here and I'm not leaving until you give me some answers.
Hope: Oh, it smells so delicious. Come on. You have to tell me, just a hint.
Liam: You don't think you could guess?
Hope: Did you make it from scratch?
Liam: Yes--no--yes. Except for the bread, uh, which I got from our bakery.
Hope: [Gasps] Is it that crunchy bread that reminds us of italy?
Liam: Yeah, yeah, it is. I got it on the way home.
Hope: Oh, so we're having italian.
Liam: We are having italian. We're having your favorite italian, which is homemade orecchiette with fresh herbs and tomatoes.
Hope: You made pasta from scratch?
Liam: Uh, and an orange ricotta cake, but it's in the oven right now and I'm not sure-- I have honestly no idea if it's gonna turn out, so bracket that.
Hope: Liam, that's, like, the least vegan cake on the planet.
Liam: Uh, it's--it's not for me, it's for you.
Hope: The entire cake is just for me?
Liam: Yeah, the entire cake is just for you. That's-- that was your dream in italy, remember? Every time you--you had a slice.
Hope: It's so good. I wish I could eat the whole thing.
Liam: It's so good. I wish I could eat the whole thing, yes. Which is-- I don't know. I want tonight to remind us of all the beautiful things we've experienced. And I also want you to know how excited I am about our future, how grateful. We've had so many good memories, we're gonna have so many more, and I promise to cherish every single one. Because when I was without you, I was lost. Lost. I love you. And I don't know what I'd do without you. When eye allergens attack, the itch can last 24 hours.
Brooke: Liam asked donna to take beth for the night and douglas is staying with thomas.
Ridge: Yeah, thomas mentioned that. I didn't know it was for this, uh, very special occasion.
Brooke: Liam and hope haven't had an evening alone together since liam moved back in the house.
Ridge: Why not? We offered to watch the kid.
Brooke: Oh, they just wanted to get their bearings together as a family first, and then they would make time to reconnect as a couple. Remember when we reconnected, we never wanted to get out of bed.
Ridge: I remember those days.
Brooke: Cherished every moment of privacy.
Ridge: We used that time wisely, I think.
Brooke: I think so, too.
Brooke: I want that for helping liam. I do. I want them to have their time to reconnect in their own space and to find those feelings that they used to have. Reignite their passion.
Ridge: And you think that could happen?
Brooke: Yeah, I do. I do. I know how much they love each other. And liam is committed to making it work this time, and for good.
Bill: You're acting like you never met me, wyatt. You know how I am.
Wyatt: Yeah. But you've been acting a little extra you lately. And I wanna know why. I'm not kidding around. I'm not leaving until I get some answers.
Bill: I have things on my mind.
Wyatt: Oh, okay. Yeah. Like what?
Bill: Like things, wyatt, things that don't concern you. So, stop asking and get back to work.
Wyatt: Yeah. You know what? Not good enough.
Bill: I am losing my patience, wyatt.
Wyatt: I don't care. This isn't an interrogation. I'm expressing my concern for you.
Bill: And I'm expressing you have nothing to be concerned about.
Wyatt: Dad, I think we're both feeling the same thing here. Nothing stresses us out more than worrying about our family. So what? Is this will? Is this katie? I mean, I know your relationship has been up in the air, but what?
Bill: I haven't given up on that.
Wyatt: Okay. Good. So it's not katie. What then? You know, the first time I noticed this increased bad attitude of yours is when you were getting into that argument with liam. Is that what this is? Is something stressing you out about liam?
Hope: You really went all out for this.
Liam: Uh, yeah. Well, it was either this or, you know, the more traditional stay in date night where it's pjs, and fuzzy slippers, and pizza, and movie on the couch.
Hope: I love our cozy nights.
Liam: No, I do too, and I'm really looking forward to that. I--I just thought that our first official date night together should be special.
Hope: Well, it is. Everything is perfect.
Liam: Almost everything. Sorry about the cake.
[ Laughs ]
Hope: [ Laughs ] It's the thought that counts.
Liam: Yeah, well, I thought it was at least gonna look like a cake and not scrambled eggs, but what are you gonna do?
Hope: Well, even if the cake sprung a leak, I'm just-- the fact that you would do this, I mean, all of it, this whole evening, uh, it means a lot. All the thought you put into it.
[ Sighs ] Your recommitment to me and our family, it's just... it's nice to see. I'm--I'm really thankful for it.
Liam: I wanna do more. You know, I want every moment that were together feel like this. I--I--I need to be totally present with you. Like-- like, this is the only time that we have.
Hope: I know. I feel the same way, but, you know, I don't want you to keep a feeling like you have to prove something. Liam, uh, well, I am-- I am touched that you wanna show me how much you care about me. I mean, we have our entire lives to--to do that, to love each other, and to share these kinds of moments.
Liam: I pray that you're right. Michael: This is the story of two brothers.
Bill: If you're not interrogating me, then why you're acting like a detective, wyatt?
Wyatt: Because I'm trying to get to the bottom of why you're consistently in a bad mood.
Bill: Oh, badgering me about it is gonna make it any better?
Wyatt: Well, maybe if we talked about it. I mean, I know that's not your favorite thing, but dollar bill gives advice, he doesn't take it.
Bill: I don't need advice, I... I know what I'm doing. I'm just a little frustrated.
Wyatt: What? With liam? I mean, what am I saying? Like, what are you-- what are you not frustrated with liam or me?
Bill: I'm not always frustrated with you guys. Wyatt, it'S... it's just that... I'm your dad. And yeah, I--I--I don't always express it the right way, but I love you guys. You mean everything to me. My dad-- he didn't give a damn about me. But I think about you guys all the time. Your well-being, your futures, and nothing in the world matters more. Not this--this business, not my reputation. Nothing matters more than my boys.
Ridge: Liam is very anxious to get back with hope.
Brooke: Making overnight plans for the kids was a pretty big clue.
Ridge: Big clue for you. What about--what about hope? Is this a surprise for her?
Brooke: Donna made it seemed that way. Do you think that might be an issue?
Ridge: I don't know. You never talked about that part of their relationship and where they stand.
Brooke: There is no question. They love each other very much.
Ridge: It's good to see our kids in relationships where they're appreciated.
Brooke: Tonight is the last big step of their reunion. I'm wondering if hope will be ready to take it.
Liam: You're listening for the kids, aren't you?
Hope: [ Laughs ] Habit.
Liam: [ Chuckles ]
Hope: You know, when they're here, silence usually means they're getting into trouble.
Hope: But it's nice.
Hope: I almost forgot what this was like.
Liam: It's been a long time.
Hope: Thank you... for all of this. I mean, this has been an incredible night.
Liam: Hope, I--I-- I've been given a second chance, you know, I'm not gonna waste it for a second. I just... I just wanna spend it making you feel like you're the most important thing in my life, which you are.
Hope: Well, mission accomplished, sir.
Hope: You did a very good job of that tonight.
Liam: [ Laughs ] Yeah. Good. It was really, um, fun putting this together. Just imagining how you would react and how nice it would feel to see a smile on your face. I just--I don't ever wanna see you unhappy again.
Hope: Hey, remember what we said at dinner, tonight is about moving forward.
Liam: No. I-- it is and--and I-- I am and we are, but...
[ Chuckles ] Being here with you at home, it's a refuge for me, you know, tonight. Going forward, I-- I only wanna bring good things to your life.
Hope: You know, you don't have to put so much pressure on yourself. Whatever lies ahead, we're in this together.
Liam: I have missed you so much. I have missed being near you. I have missed your breath. I have missed feeling your body close to me so much.
Hope: I missed you, too.
Liam: This feels right, me being--being with you, everything feels right.
