Hope: I don't understand. You're--you're afraid you're going to lose me?

Liam: Kids, too.

Hope: I mean, why on earth would you think that?

Liam: Because it's true. You've gotta listen to me. Listen... somebody may be coming... to take me away from you and the kids.

Hope: What are you talking about? Liam, you're not going anywhere. There's no one coming to take you away.

Liam: Yeah, I don't want them to take me away. I want to stay with you as long as I can, but...oh, god.

Hope: What is it? I mean, what is it, liam? Please, just let me help you.

Liam: You can'T.

Hope: Well, at least let me try.

Liam: No, it's not--it's-- it's--it's--it's too late.


Hope: No, it's not. It's not. Okay? Liam? I love you, but you need to talk to me and tell me what it is that is upsetting you.

Liam: I have you. I have the kids, I have this home, I have everything. I have everything I've ever wanted...and I'm living in a fool's paradise.

Bill: [Sighs]

Thomas: This is, uh... different. You look almost upset. What's wrong, bill?

Ridge: Thomas did what? He--no, no, no, that's-- you're absolutely right. I mean, once we let that go, then...what happens to society as a whole, right? No, no, no. I--I'm--thank you so much for calling. I will-- I--I will take care of it. Thank you.

[Ridge exhales]

Brooke: Who was that?

Ridge: Charlie. Apparently my son is in trouble. He parked in someone else's spot this morning.

Brooke: Oh, no! That is... [Laughing] Terrible!

Ridge: I know. He's--he's in hot water, and you know what? When he comes back, I'm--I'm gonna talk to him about it.

Brooke: So thomas isn't in the building?

Ridge: Hmm. When he comes back, I'm gonna make sure he parks in the right spot because-- does it bother anybody else that charlie is armed? That's just weird, right? Anyway, I'll take care of it.

Brooke: Did he say where he might be going?

Ridge: Thomas? No, I don't know. Why, you need to see him?

Brooke: No, I just want to tell him how pleased I am that he's gonna leave hope and liam alone. Because they need this time together with no distractions. They need tranquility in their relationship, ridge, and with their family.

Ridge: I know this is not gonna come as a big surprise, but...

Brooke: Mm-hmm.

Ridge: I agree with you.

Brooke: [Gasps]

Ridge: Right? I always agree with you, because that's what our relationship is. It's--it's, uh...

Brooke: Agreeable!

Ridge: It's agreeable. Boom.

Brooke: [Laughs] Seriously, though, ridge, hope and liam have faced enough challenges. They don't need something-- or someone--trying to tear them apart.

Flo: I agree.

Ridge: She agrees. There's that word again. We are agreeable.

Flo: [Chuckles] Think I may have missed something, but that's probably what I get for barging in and interrupting.

Brooke: Oh, I was just talking about hope, how I want hope and liam and beth and douglas to just thrive as a family.

Ridge: We all want that.

Flo: I know I do. And I think it's gonna happen. I can feel it.

Brooke: So can I.

Bill: Well, well. Look at the vermin that the cat dragged in. What the hell do you want?

Thomas: It's actually you who wanted something from me, or at least one of your publications. "Eye on fashion"? Just did an interview with them.

Bill: Oh, that means somebody's gonna get fired. Why are we scraping the scum off the bottom of the barrel doing a feature on you?

Thomas: You're more of an ass than usual today and I wonder why? I mean, hope and liam are back together. Think you'd be happy, you know. I mean, they finally put that crazy night behind them.

Hope: "Fool's paradise"? What are you talking about?

Liam: Hope, you know that I love you more than life itself, right? But this could all go away, and it could go away very quickly.

Hope: Okay, first of all, I'm not going anywhere. All right? And secondly, we have been through too much for me to allow anything else to come between us ever again.

Liam: I--I know, I know you and I--and I know that that's-- I wish that were true. I wish it were, and I wish I could go back and change that night, but I can'T. I can'T. And, we're back!

Flo: Thanks for making sure that hope gets this. So, is she, um... is she out of the office at, like, a meeting today or something?

Brooke: I think she's probably still home. Liam had a special evening planned for them last night.

Hope: Okay, say no more. My, uh, future husband is notorious at planning these types of special evenings.

Brooke: [Chuckles]

Ridge: How is wyatt? He's gotta be happy that hope and liam are back together, right?

Flo: He's thrilled, yeah. Yeah. Although there was--I mean, I-- I don't know.

Brooke: What?

Flo: [Stammers] I don't even know if it's worth mentioning this, but wyatt did say that the last few times he's been around liam and bill, there's been a lot of tension between them. Or at least that's how he felt.

Brooke: Tension? Strange. I was with bill earlier and he seemed very pleased that hope and liam were reconciling, getting back together.

Flo: I--I'm sure he is, but... well, he did tell wyatt that he has some concerns about it.

Brooke: What kind of concerns?

Flo: He didn't elaborate. Wyatt tried to push him on it, but you know bill. If he doesn't want you to know something, then good luck finding it out.

Brooke: Now that I think about it... hope did tell me that liam had a heaviness to him and when I told bill that, he said liam can be his own worst enemy. I mean, I wonder if he meant something more.

Thomas: You should be happy. I mean, hope did forgive liam for his betrayal.

Bill: You are the betrayal expert. You've done far worse.

Thomas: I'm not exactly the only one in this room who's done "far worse," bill. I would never cheat on hope.

Bill: Hope and liam have reconciled, which I know you hate.

Thomas: Actually, I don'T.

Bill: Really? Do tell.

Thomas: I want what hope wants, and she wants to be with him, so, I'm happy for her.

Bill: [Chuckles] You're so full of it you make me want to puke. This is just your latest strategy. Well, you can try and sell that B.S. To everyone else, but I ain't buying it. You will always see liam as a rival for hope's heart.

Thomas: Doesn't really matter how I feel about liam. It's how hope feels about liam that matters. And liam's big secret is out now. And hope seems to have forgiven him, and... hopefully liam won't make that mistake again, keeping anything from hope, because if he did, well, he would lose her and that would be pretty stupid.

Bill: You want to know what's stupid? I'm looking at it. You are a pathetic joke. Any commentary you have on my son's life, when you consider that yours has been a train wreck. Having said that, hope may not have completely forgiven liam, but she will eventually. And more importantly, in time, liam will forgive himself.

Thomas: Well, at least liam has time. I'm sure you may have heard my friend vinny... uh, was...killed in a hit-and-run. Some heartless bastard just left him on the side of the road to die.

Hope: Liam, I...I already told you that I want to put what happened that night behind us. I want to grow from it, and then I want to move on.

Liam: You don't--it's-- I--I can't move on from this.

Hope: Well, I'm going to need you to try, all right? And I need you to stop beating yourself up for what happened that night with steffy so we--

Liam: It's not-- it's not steffy. This is not about steffy. This is--I get why... listen, I'm always gonna regret what I did to you that night, but this is not that. This is different. This is... worse.

Hope: Worse?

Liam: I'm not kidding when I say that somebody may come and take me away from you and the kids forever. And if that happens... I will deserve it. There are times, I wonder...

Brooke: So, you think bill might be keeping something from liam and hope?

Ridge: I don't know what I think. I was just wondering out loud, that's all.

Brooke: [Sighs] You didn't answer my question.

Ridge: Well, what is your question? You were just with that oaf, and you said nothing jumped out at you.

Brooke: You're right. But it did for wyatt. He picked up on the intensity between his father and brother.

Flo: Well, he still doesn't really know what to make of it. Bill wasn't exactly very forthcoming.

Ridge: He's never forthcoming. That's why I don't like the guy. He's always hiding something.

Thomas: I gather you heard about the hit-and-run.

Bill: Yeah. I also know that vinny was the dirtbag who screwed with steffy's paternity test. I also know that he was a common drug dealer. Not a real boy scout, may he rest in-- well, rest in peace. Who knows where he is?

Thomas: You want company wherever you're going, that's fine.

Bill: [Chuckles]

Thomas: But vinny was a good person. And just 'cause he made mistakes does not mean that he deserved to die the way he did, at the hands of a coward like that. And even a misguided soul like you should understand that.

Hope: Liam... what do you mean, someone is coming to take you away? Who? What is happening? You need to tell me.

Liam: I don't--I don't want beth to grow up without a father, I really don'T. It's just...

Hope: What are you talking about? I can't help you if I don't know what is going on!

Liam: Okay, okay, okay, okay. Listen. Listen. Listen to me. I swear to you... I didn't mean to do this. So just remember that it happened out of the blue and I didn't have time to stop. Just remember that.

Hope: Stop? Stop for what?

Liam: I'm--I'm trying not to involve you in this, okay? Because this is my responsibility, but the thought of losing you again is more than I can bear.

Hope: No, you keep saying that and I keep telling you that you are not going to lose me or my love! It doesn't matter what you tell me right now. Nothing will change that, okay? Do you hear me, liam? Nothing!

Bill: Well, you can defend vinny, the paternity test-switching drug dealer all you want, but he was a lowlife who, like you, caused the people I love a lot of grief. And why the police are spending any time on his sorry ass, I will never understand.

Thomas: I wouldn't say that the police trying to find my best friend's killer is wasting time. Not that they're having any luck.

Bill: Yeah, no leads, huh?

Thomas: No. It's frustrating.

Bill: Oh, well. Hit-and-runs happen all the time and some just never get solved.

Thomas: No, but this one will if I have anything to say about it. Because I'll stay on baker until he finds this bastard, make sure that he arrests him, and he tries him, and he throws him in jail for the rest of his miserable life.

Liam: You know how much it means to me, right? This... second chance that you've given us.

Hope: [Sighs] Yes, I do. And whatever it is that you're going through, I promise you that we can get through it together.

Liam: You know I remember the day I first met you. And even then I knew there was something so special about you. Just the way you carried yourself, you know, what you had done with your life. Just the thought of... being your husband. Having a daughter with you. I could've searched the world over and never found a woman more precious to share a life with, but you... you are my life. You are my whole life.

Hope: And you're mine. All right? Nothing is going to change that.

Liam: Ah, that's the thing. You wouldn't be saying that if you knew what I did.

Hope: I don't care what it is you did. Whatever it is, I know that we can get through it together, but I need you to trust me. To trust us, to trust our love that--that it can overcome anything, but first, I need to know what the hell is going on.

Liam: [Sniffles] You remember... you remember the night, weeks ago, I was over here, and it was the first time you let me kiss you again? Felt like the first step. Reconnecting, finding our way back to each other. It was like... it was light and fun and it was like the future was ours again and it was all because of you. It was because of your goodness. Because of your... willingness to see...

Hope: Liam... why are you talking about that night as if we don't have... today, tomorrow? I mean, the rest of our lives together?

Liam: I'm trying to tell you that that night was the-- it was the last night I was me. It was the last night that i actually... had you.

Hope: You still have me.

Liam: I actually lost you that night. That night was the beginning of the end of everything for me.

Hope: How can it be the end when we're only just getting started again? Liam, you--

[Laughs] I don't understand what is going on, so I need you to just stop beating around the bush and just tell me!

Liam: You remember my dad and brooke... talking up at the main house? And then I went home with him? I drove his car because he had one drink too many. Remember that? We were on the... dark stretch of road between here and my dad's place, and... it happened so fast that i just didn't have time to react, but then... I saw his face. And I saw the blood. And then I realized that it was me who... I did it, hope. I'm responsible.

Hope: Responsible for what?

Liam: For vinny. I hit him with the car. I'm the one who killed him.
