Steffy: [ Sighs ]

Finn: I thought kelly would be back by now.

Steffy: No. Liam's gonna keep kelly for the night. He got a--a lot to make up for. Just grateful kelly gets time with her dad again.

Finn: Yeah. That's a huge relief for sure.

[ Sighs ] We should probably tackle this pile while hayes is sleeping. And we still haven't finished filling out the paperwork for his birth certificate.

Steffy: Um... actually, that's something I-- I wanna talk to you about. I have an idea. It's, uh--it's about his name.

Wyatt: So what do we do now?

Bill: About what?

Wyatt: Uh, the enormous void we're gonna have to fill?

Bill: My former legal counsel.

Wyatt: Well, justin was...

Bill: Stop! Don't do it. I never wanna hear his name mentioned in this building again. I don't give a damn what happens to him, as long as he stays the hell away from me and my company that he tried to steal.

Ridge: So if we don't press charges...

Justin: You'll have my loyalty. Full access to years of information. Knowledge of bill's dealings. In exchange for my freedom. In exchange for your silence about my momentary lapse in judgment. I know you despise bill spencer. And rightfully so. And I'm giving you a chance to have the upper hand on him. You'd be crazy to pass it up.

Quinn: I'm so happy to know that you're still coo and-- and lead counsel of forrester. Shows me how valued you are. You're irreplaceable, carter.

Carter: It's not true. They're giving me a second chance but...

Quinn: But it means that we have to be over. Now you can't see me anymore.

Finn: You're changing your mind on the name hayes?

Steffy: No. No. Not at all. I mean that, hayes fit perfectly right when we saw him.

Finn: Yeah.

Steffy: And thank you for allowing me to honor my mom that way.

Finn: Yeah. I--I love the name. And I love you.

Steffy: I love you. It just got me thinking a little further, you know? He's part you and hayes is part me. He's like a combination of both of us, and I kind of want that to reflect in this name.

Finn: Okay. So hayes finnegan? I mean, I think we got that covered.

Steffy: Okay. So I was thinking, um... what if we do hayes forrester-finnegan?

Wyatt: Dad, is there any chance, even in the slightest...

Bill: No. None. He kept me in jail, wyatt. He attempted a coup.

Katie: Bill, you have every right to feel the way you do. And even if you can't find any forgiveness, it could be healing...

Bill: Forgiveness? Not an option. Not ever.

Ridge: What can you really do for me? I mean, I run this company. I don't need to know what's going on over at spencer'S. Why?

Justin: Bill's jealous of you. Always has been. Which means he'll come for you again. It's only a matter of time before that happens. Oh, boy. And when he does, I'll be right there for you. You have my word.

Quinn: You deserve all the success you've achieved, carter. I don't want you to lose that because of me, because of our involvement.

Carter: You deserve it too. You've worked so hard over the years.

Quinn: I was successful before forrester creations. And I will be again. It's scary starting over, not knowing what the future holds.

[ Chuckles ] I mean, eric, he was--he was the center of my life for so long. The status of being his wife, my portrait above the fireplace.

[ Gasps ] No! Carter, what is my portrait doing here?

Is angel soft an

ideal balance of

Finn: You want hayes to have the forrester name too?

Steffy: Well, I have two kids, and kelly has her father's name, and I just-- I want hayes to have my name too.

Finn: Okay. I mean, I understand that.

Steffy: You do?

Finn: Yeah. I mean, the way I see it, two names are better than one, all right? He's--he's-- your name and my name. We're gonna be a family.

Steffy: I love you.

Finn: Hmm. And now that hayes is here, I mean, I'm even more excited, you know, to become one. Officially a family. This wedding cannot come soon enough.

Steffy: [ Chuckles ]

Finn: Steffy, I am-- I'm so ready to marry you.

Carter: Eric asked me to get rid of it.

Quinn: [ Chuckles ] Get rid. I'm pretty sure he meant trash it.

Carter: But how could I?

Quinn: So you brought it here?

Carter: What else could I do? I couldn't let something so beautiful... get destroyed.

Wyatt: Looking back now, I realize justin was acting erratic. He--he was stressed. But I thought he was stressed out 'cause he was having a hard time getting you and liam out of jail.

Bill: Well, you're lucky he got caught when he did, because guess what? If he was trying to take over this company, you were gonna be the next on his hit list.

Wyatt: Yeah. Well, I don't wanna think about that, because I should be thinking about this affiliate meeting.

Bill: Good. Onward and upward.

Katie: Okay. I'm gonna go too. Um, zach's dad is dropping off will.

Bill: Hey, katie. Wait--wait a second. Um, I'm free now. So how about you, uh, involve me in, uh-- in practices and--and play dates. Carpool.

Katie: Carpool?

Bill: Well, why are you so surprised? You don't think I--I can get in the carpool lane just like any old regular dad?

Katie: All right. Sure. I'll take you up on that. Uh, in fact, what are you doing tonight?

Bill: Nothing.

Katie: Good. Come over. Will will be happy to see you.

Bill: I'll be there.

Katie: Uh... I'm not gonna tell you what to do about justin. You have every right to feel the way you do. And if you think you need to cut him out of your life, then--then that's your choice, but he's your best friend.

Bill: Was.

Katie: And he betrayed you. And I know that hurts. So you can bluster and you can say that he's dead to you, but we both know it's more complicated than that.

Justin: Thomas, ridge, so what do you say? Do we have a deal?

Ridge: I say we prosecute today.

Thomas: Um, wait. I know what it's like to have a momentary lapse in judgment. That's why I didn't tell the police when I was at the station. I also know what it's like to hate bill. But can you trust him?

Ridge: No, we can't trust him. It's justin.

Justin: I know you have no reason to believe me and every reason to suspect. What I did to thomas, no father should forgive. Maybe I could do something to prove my loyalty to you. Dollar bill's most prized possession. ( Lovely day instrumental) my heart failure diagnosis

Thomas: The sword necklace.

Justin: It's for you, ridge. I mean what I say. I'm done with dollar bill. It's all yours if we have a deal. Keep me out of jail. Accept my apology. This is my vow of loyalty to you now, ridge. Whenever you need me, consider it done, if you don't press charges. So, gentlemen, what do you say?

Quinn: You can never let them see that you have this. Not eric. Not--not ridge. Otherwise, they're gonna think that you and I are still...

Carter: I know. I know. I can't take that risk. Not after getting my second chance.

Quinn: [ Sighs ]

Carter: You know, I keep asking myself how...

Quinn: How we let this get so out of control? But then I think about our time together and, uh...

Carter: Uh-hmm. Me too. I feel guilty, quinn.

Quinn: No.

Carter: Yeah. Yeah, I do. I--I didn't lose anything and you lost so much.

Quinn: No. No. No guilt.

Carter: I think about you all the time. How you're hurting. And I know you're strong but this has gotta be brutal and I wanna make it better. I wanna take you in my arms. I wanna hold you. I wanna tell you that it's gonna be okay. But I can'T. I can'T. I can'T. I'm eric's attorney. I'm handling his divorce from you. And I-- I shouldn't be talking to you about this, right?

Quinn: You have been given an amazing opportunity. A second chance. I'm not gonna ruin it for you. I won'T.

[ Sighs ] This has to be over, carter. I just-- I can't be in your arms again.

Steffy: I'm looking forward to our wedding too. And our honeymoon. Assuming I'll be ready to be away from hayes. At this point, I couldn't even imagine it. No way.

Finn: No, I mean, we could do the honeymoon here. And, kids included.

Steffy: Yeah?

Finn: Yeah.

Steffy: [ Laughs ]

Finn: I mean, but then-- but then we will do another one for our first anniversary.

Steffy: Oh.

Finn: Just the two of us.

Steffy: You could talk me into that.

Finn: [ Chuckles ] Yeah. Good. There's, um, a lot I was hoping to talk you into, actually.

Steffy: Ooh. Sounds mysterious.

Finn: This is the happiest I've ever been.

Steffy: Finn.

Finn: It's the truth. You've changed my life. You've given me this beautiful child, our son, and this responsibility of-- of raising him and-- and being a husband.

Steffy: I don't see a wedding band on my finger, mister, so...

Finn: Hmm, but you will soon. In fact... maybe even today.

[ Chuckles ]

If you have postmenopausal


Ridge: Hey, dad. Didn't know you're coming in.

Eric: I wasn't planning to, but, uh, the sooner I can get started on this divorce, the better. I stopped by carter's office. He's not there. You know where he is?

Ridge: No. He hasn't been in today yet.

Eric: That surprises me. I would think he would be the first person in to the office to show us that, uh, we didn't make a mistake keeping him on, not firing him.

Ridge: You're still thinking about that?

Eric: No. We have an agreement. He can stay here, keep his place at forrester, as long as he stays away from quinn.

Quinn: [ Sighs ] It doesn't seem fair. I have to walk away from you right now, when I need your friendship the most.

Carter: Yeah. I hate that it has to be this way, but eric made it very clear.

Quinn: Did he-- did he say those words or was it just implied?

Carter: "If you want your job, stay away from quinn."

Quinn: Yeah. That's pretty clear.

Carter: Yeah, it is.

Quinn: Okay. Well... so that's what we need to do, right? I just hope that

[ Sighs ] That you will always remember the connection that we shared, you know, when everything is said and done, and you've moved on. 'Cause you know you will. A man like you? So handsome and kind. And I know--I know there is

[ Sighs ] There is a lucky woman out there just waiting for you.

[ Sighs ]

Steffy: Today? But we haven't done any planning. Like, who could we invite over right now?

Finn: Yeah. But that's the point. You know, it-- it can just be you and me. And one very special witness. I mean, I don't think there's an age requirement.

Steffy: Yeah, he's gonna need to do some signing.

Finn: I mean, we'll-- we'll figure it out. I mean, tell me, if you were to say your vows to me today, right here, right now, what would you say?

Steffy: Are you serious?

Finn: Yeah.

Steffy: Oh, my gosh.

Finn: What would you say?

Steffy: I don't know.

[ Laughs ] I-- I would say that I am very fortunate to have you in my life. And you're an extraordinary man who helped me through one of the hardest times of my life. I'm appreciative of you. You gave me a beautiful son. And I really hope he has your voice and your kind heart. You're amazing. You're understanding. You're like super sexy, and so many things.

Finn: [ Laughs ]

Steffy: Okay. My turn.

Finn: Okay.

Steffy: [ Laughs ]

Finn: Um, yeah, I mean, I would say, yeah, I'm-- I'm grateful too, you know, to be marrying a strong, confident woman. And the most beautiful. I couldn't imagine my life without you, because you made what my life is today. You made me a father. And now... I want you to make me a husband.

Steffy: Oh.

Finn: I mean, we already said our vows to a very sleepy little witness over there. Let's--let's just do it. I mean, I promise to love, honor, and cherish you for the rest of my life. Will you do the same? Do you promise to love, honor, and cherish me for the rest of yours? Let's just do it. I mean, right here, right now. Say yes.
