Hope: [ Chuckles ]
Hope: Good morning. How long have you been awake?
Liam: Uh, I don't know. Tried to sleep, but I just kept staring at you. I didn't want the moment to end, it felt like a-- like a dream.
Hope: Hmm. Well, I can assure you, it's very real.
Liam: I don't ever wanna let you go.
Hope: Hmm. Well, you don't have to. Liam, last night was... amazing. I miss... our connection, your touch.
Hope: It's the first night of the rest of our lives.
Liam: I want that. I need that... more than you could ever know.
Thomas: Okay. Wait. So you're--so you're saying that you aren't any closer to figuring out anything about the person who murdered vinny? I mean, there's got to be something. Look, I'm sorry. I just--I know you're doing the best you can, just let me know if you find anything. Thanks.
Ridge: Any leads?
Ridge: Sorry, son. I know this hurts, and that's not gonna go away, but I promise you, we're gonna find whoever mowed down vinny. And they're gonna pay for what they've done.
Bill: Uh, this side, you're driving.
Liam: Me? Are you serious? [ Grunts ]
[ Tires screeching ]
Liam: Vinny. Hey, hey, buddy. I'm so sorry, man. I--I--I--I didn't see you.
[ Grunts ] We can't do this.
Bill: Liam! We are doing it. I will fix it! Look at me! No one will ever know what happened.
Brooke: Hello, bill.
Bill: Brooke, I didn't hear you come in.
Brooke: I can see that. Is something wrong?
Brooke: Is it katie or will?
Bill: No. No, no, no. They're--they're, um--they're both fine. I just have a lot going on.
Brooke: Hmm, I'm sure you'll have it under control.
Bill: [ Chuckles ] So, uh, to what do I owe the honor of your little visit?
Brooke: It's about our children. I just wanted you to know that they had their reunion. They were celebrating together last night.
Bill: Ah. Well, that's, uh-- that's very good news. I know that liam has been working hard to earn back hope's trust.
Brooke: They have a wonderful future ahead of them.
Bill: And what a wonderful future it will be.
Ridge: So I understand, uh, last night was fun. You and douglas, I mean, that must have cheered you up a little bit.
Thomas: Yeah. Actually, it was, um-- it was amazing. Uh, you know, it kind of actually took my mind off of things. We, uh-- we ordered a pizza, had some ice cream, and, uh, watched that-- that spongebob movie, like, literally four times, I think.
Ridge: Uh, spongebob, which one, the first one or the second one?
Thomas: All of them. Just straight through. It's like a whole--
Ridge: Hmm. Squidward is my favorite, and always has been.
Thomas: Douglas really loves it. I love seeing him happy. I love spending every moment I can with him, you know, and it was good because, uh, hope and liam, they needed some--some time alone, so...
Ridge: And you're okay with that?
Thomas: Yeah. I mean, if hope's happy, I'm happy.
Ridge: I think she is, son. I think she is happy.
Thomas: I hope you're right.
Liam: Do we, um-- do we have to get up or can we just...
[ Chuckles ]
Liam: Can we just stay here forever?
Hope: Oh, I wish we could, but the outside world is calling, and we can't run away from that forever. Kids are going to be here soon. I have a hope for the future meeting, and frankly, I am surprised that bill hasn't sent you 20 text messages by now.
[ Tires screeching ]
Bill: And you will never say a word.
Liam: Hey, vinny! Vinny!
Bill: Do you understand me?
Liam: Oh, my god.
Bill: No one will ever know what happened.
Hope: Liam? Where'd you go?
Liam: Just--just thinking about last night, about us. Hey, we don't know what the future holds, or what's in store for us, but can you-- can you promise me something?
Liam: No matter what happens, you're not gonna forget how much I love you. Hi sabrina!
Ridge: It's been a tough year for you, but you've been a good friend to hope.
Thomas: She has been a better friend to me.
Ridge: I don't know about that. You were there for her when no one else was. You'd found a way to get through to her, and that's good. You did the right way, so just keep doing that. Stay the course.
Thomas: There it is.
Ridge: What does that mean? There--there what is?
Thomas: You think that hope and liam being back together bothers me, and that them being alone last night bothers me.
Ridge: Yeah. Because I know how you feel about it.
Thomas: [ Sighs ] Hope is-- is happy and looking forward to a future with liam, and as her friend, I want that for her, but I don't wanna see liam break her heart again.
Ridge: I know you don'T. None of us want that.
Thomas: Look, I, um-- I appreciate you caring about me, but, um, I gotta--I gotta take a break.
Thomas: I gotta take a break, all right? I'll be back.
Brooke: So, how is liam?
Bill: He's fine. Why do you ask?
Brooke: Hope was a little bit worried. She said there was, uh, a heaviness to him, and she wanted to talk to him about it, but he wasn't willing to open up.
Bill: I wouldn't read too much into that. You know, his --his life has been, uh, a bit of a roller coaster lately.
Brooke: Hope invited him home, and she's working on forgiving him. So I think the best thing that he can do is put that night with steffy behind him as soon as possible.
Bill: Well, that's always been, uh, a problem for liam. He makes a mistake, and then, he puts himself through hell over it. Sometimes he's his own worst enemy.
Brooke: I wouldn't be too hard on him, actually. The fact that he's feeling guilty, that just shows what a big heart he has, and that's what won hope back.
Bill: Yeah. Liam and his big heart.
Brooke: They had been through insurmountable challenges, and they've always endured. They're gonna have a beautiful life together.
Bill: I certainly hope so.
Hope: Aww, thank you.
Hope: Are you going into the office today?
Liam: [ Chuckles ] Well, I don't want to. I'd rather stay here with you, play with the kids.
Hope: Hmm. Well, I would love that too, but we can't block out the outside world forever.
Liam: Well, we could try. What's a few more hours, right? I feel like we could get a lot done in a few more hours.
Thomas: Hey, guys. Uh, I didn't mean to interrupt. I just wanted you to know that-- well, douglas is over at his friend, ian's house. They're hanging out for a little while. I figured you guys could use some more alone time.
Liam: Yeah. Cool. You could have told us that in a text, but...
Thomas: I did, actually.
Hope: Oh, that's my bad. I'm sorry. I--my phone has been on silent, um, but we do appreciate it. Thank you.
Liam: Yeah. Thank you.
Thomas: Of course. Um, I'm, uh-- I'm glad to see you so happy. It's--it's kind of what I've always wanted, you know, for you, beth, and douglas, and I'm sure that you don't believe me when I say that, but, look, liam, I, um-- if you are the person that hope wants to spend the rest of her life with, then I accept that, and just.... hold on to her tight, okay?
Liam: I will. I order my groceries online now.
[ Door opens ]
Ridge: Really? I just lost 20 bucks to myself. I--I--I've made a bet, saying that there's no way you're gonna get more beautiful, and then, you walk in like this. It's not right.
Brooke: You saw me this morning.
Ridge: Oh, I saw you this morning. And that's what I mean. Now you're here, and you're even prettier. How do you do that? What?
Brooke: Um, I don't want you to overreact, but I do wanna tell you that I went to see bill.
Ridge: You went to see bill. Why?
Brooke: To discuss our children. He's been wonderfully supportive, ridge.
Ridge: Wonderfully supportive and bill should not be in the same sentence.
Brooke: Ridge, come on.
Ridge: No, you know, who has been supportive? Thomas.
Hope: Well, I hope you didn't stay up too late with douglas.
Thomas: Oh, no, we did.
Hope: [ Laughs ]
Thomas: We ate too much ice cream, too. Every moment I get to spend with him is pretty great. I'm--I'm realizing how-- how precious those moments are, more and more, especially after everything that's happened, you know, uh, me in the hospital, and vinny's death, um, life is just too short.
Hope: It certainly is. Have you spoken to the police? Is there any new information?
Thomas: Yeah, I, uh-- I talked to baker this morning, but they're not any closer to finding the--the monster that killed vinny, so...
Liam: Hey [ Clears throat ] I want you to know, I feel really terrible about what happened. I'm sorry, thomas. I'm really sorry.
Thomas: Thanks, liam. I-- I didn't mean to bring you guys down. Um, and liam, I know that, you know, we disagreed a lot, but I want you to know, and like today, I'm not-- I didn't come here to try and interrupt things, you know. For all the ways we differ, we want the same thing you know, hope's happiness and the kids' happiness. And if you're the one who can give them that, I respect that. I know you'd feel the same way if the situation was reverse, so I'm gonna go.
Hope: Wait, thomas. Look, I know there's a lot on your shoulders right now with vinny's death, but please, just know that-- I mean we're here to help, if you need it.
Thomas: I do appreciate that, you know, I mean-- anyway, um, I won't bring your day down anymore, so you two have a good one, all right?
Hope: Liam, I know something's wrong. I know you well enough to know that whatever this is you feel you can't talk to me about, that you need to. So, what is going on? There are times, I wonder...
Brooke: I understand thomas is trying.
Ridge: He's trying? No, he's doing more than that. He took douglas last night, so liam and your daughter could spend the night together, that's not just trying. That's being supportive.
Brooke: But he still loves hope.
Ridge: Yes, he loves her. That's what true love is, right? Putting someone else's needs above your own.
Brooke: I'm just so happy all the drama is behind hope and liam.
Hope: Liam, I love you, but I-- I'm concerned. I mean, you haven't been yourself for a while now, and I thought it was because of the separation, but after last night, one would think you would be overjoyed.
Liam: I am. No, I-- I am. Uh, that was all I wanted for so long.
Hope: So then, what is it?
[ Cell phone ringing ]
Hope: It's your dad.
Hope: You should probably answer that.
Liam: Okay. Okay.
[ Cell phone ringing ]
Liam: Hey, dad.
Bill: Hey, liam. Brooke was just here. And she told me that you and hope had a great night last night.
Liam: Um, yeah. We did.
Bill: Well, I would say congratulations, but brooke also told me that hope is worried about you. You don't seem like yourself. There is a heaviness about you. Do you wanna lose everything? You have got to pull yourself together.
Liam: Hey, dad. I can't, um, really talk right now.
Bill: Is hope there?
Bill: Then why didn't you tell me that in the first place. Liam, listen to me, you don't say a word. You do not say one word about what happened to vinny. Liam? Liam! Damn it.
Hope: What was that call about? Because there's obviously something going on. Liam, what are you keeping from me? We promised no more secrets.
Liam: I know. I know. I'm sorry.
Hope: Look, I-- I know you feel terrible about that night with steffy, but--
Liam: Actually... this is not about steffy.
Hope: Okay. Well, then, what is it? I'm your wife, and you should be able to trust me, and-- and tell me anything, and obviously, whatever it is it's eating you up from inside, so please, liam, just-- I'm here, talk to me.
Liam: Sorry. I'm-- I'm sorry.
Hope: Sorry about what?
Liam: You're right. That I-- I shouldn't hold things in... and you deserve the truth. You deserve all the truth, but I'M... scared.
Hope: Scared of what?
Liam: Of losing you. I'm scared--I'm-- I'm scared that I may be taken away from you and the kids forever. Forever.
Hope: Liam, liam, I don't-- you're not making any sense. I don't understand. So whatever it is going on, I need you to tell me.
