Hope tells Liam that they can do this. Hope says that she loves Liam and he loves her. She explains that yes, he made a commitment but it was made under false pretences. She asks him if he would have married Steffy if she had gotten there first and would have gotten a chance to explain. She says no, he would not have. She asks him to say something as he is just standing there but Liam admits that he does not know what to say. Hope tells him a mistake was made and it needs to be corrected, but they can fix this.
At that point Ridge walks in and catches Liam and Hope together. Seeing how close they are standing, Ridge frowns and says that they both have to know that this cannot go on.
At Steffy and Liams home, Steffy is cleaning up when the doorbell rings. Brooke walks in an comments on Steffys burned cooking and says that she has done a lot worse than burn Liams dinner. Steffy says so what if she did? It has nothing to do with Brooke.
Nick tells his mother that there is a word for men who sell love for money. Jackie says yes, there are several but she doesnt think there is one for men who sell love for clothing though. Nick says she thinks shes so cute but Jackie says that what she is, is desperate to have a new collection at Jackie M, as is Nick.
She tells Nick that she is not annoyed enough at Stephanie to steal her husband but she is annoyed enough to steal one or two of her husbands designs. Nick tells his mother Pam cannot pull this off. He says Amber did the same thing but she was sneaky but Pam is just a walking emergency alarm and not sneaky at all. Jackie says then she thinks Nicks manly virtue is safe then. Nick does not look amused.
Pam slips into Erics office. Finding it empty she seizes her chance and searches for his new designs. She discovers two of them and grins at her discovery.
Nick tells his mother hell be in the pool. Jackie says that she supposes he needs to cool off after thinking of Pam. Nick gets upset at his mother and asks her what hes supposed to do if Pam accidentally succeeds. Jackie says that she supposes hell have to give her what he promised then. Annoyed, Nick says that he didnt promise anything. Jackie just says that hes been without a woman for too long and she is just looking out for him like a good mother should. Nick says he does not appreciate being treated like a piece of meat, Not by some homicidal maniac anyway, indicating Pam. Jackie tells him not to be so judgemental as Pam has not tried to kill anyone in ages.
Pam takes a photo of one of the designs. As she moves to take a picture of the second design, Oliver suddenly walks in. When he says hello, Pam jumps and says does he never knock, because he gave her a heart attack. Oliver says hes just looking for Eric and asks Pam if shes seen him around anywhere. When Pam stalls with her answer, Oliver gets more curious when he sees her phone out. He asks her if he can see that and takes her phone out of her hands while Pam tells him not to in panic.
Brooke tells Steffy she was right all along. Steffy says that she could have emailed her if that was all she had to say. Brooke says it must have been scary for her knowing the truth could come out any day and Liam could leave her. Steffy says that shes not worried. She says that Brooke raves about her all the time but who listens? She tells Brooke that and nothing came out, she talked to her husband. Brooke says that she has a question for her; why did she do it, or does she even have to ask? Steffy asks Brooke is she actually thinks she married Liam to get back at her? Brooke asks her if she did.
Ridge tells Liam that he should not be here. Hope says that the most amazing thing has happened and tries to explain but Ridge tells her that her ex-boyfriend married Steffy and that makes it rather inappropriate that she meet with Liam behind closed doors.
Pam tells Oliver that she needs her phone back. Oliver asks her if shes sure its hers. Confused by his question, Pam asks him why hes saying that. Oliver says that it looks like his and his is missing. He says hes sure he put it around here somewhere but Pam says no shes sure its hers and takes it back. When she grabs the phone, Oliver gives her a doubtful look. Seeing his narrowed eyes, Pam says that she didnt mean to grab it and says its just that she has a lot of personal stuff on this phone. Oliver says its no problem. Pam tells him maybe he should go look for his phone. Oliver says okay and turns to leave and as hes heading out, Pam tells him to lock the door on the way out. Once he leaves, Pam gets to work and takes the remaining picture she needs of the second design.
Nick tells his mother that he cant believe shes making him play with this poor womans feelings. Jackie says she is not. She says that Pam needs affection and they need what she can bring them, its a fair exchange so whats wrong with it? Nick goes silent before muttering hell be in the pool. Once he leaves his phone rings. Jackie answers it and finds its Pam. Pam tells her that her mission has been accomplished. Jackie is astonished at how fast she did this but Pam says it was easy. She asks Jackie if shes going to get her reward though. She asks if Nick isnt going to back out. Jackie says no, hes not, in fact hes been talking about nothing else. Pam looks satisfied.
Brooke says that Steffy knew Hope was in Aspen and knew she didnt like the way she broke things off with Liam so she could kind of guess why she was there. She says that Hope was on her way up that mountain to see Liam but somehow she got that gondola stopped. She says that Steffy then pulled a surprise wedding on Liam and he had no idea what was going on and when he asked her she lied to him. Steffy ask Brooke if its possible that in her rush to tell her how bad she is that shes missing a key fact; she told Liam herself. Brooke says that she doesnt get points for that no matter how badly she thinks she deserves them. Steffy nods bitterly and says that yea, its a very horrible thing to have to lie to your husband, the fear of him finding out and hating yourself for it. She says it makes her wonder how Brooke can stand to do it so many times.
Liam tells Ridge that there has been a misunderstanding. Hope says that she knows this is going to be hard for Ridge to hear but Steffy lied and she admitted it. Ridge says that so hes heard. Hope says okay, then he knows that they were tricked and lied to or else they would be together. Ridge looks at Hope cynically and asks would they really because thats not the way he remembers it. He says that he remembers that she broke it off with Liam.
Hope tries to justify herself by saying she was hurt because she saw Steffy kissing Liam. Ridge says that Liam chose Steffy. Hope says no and Liam says no, not at that time. He says he doesnt know what that was. Ridge says it was a choice but Hope defends Liam by saying he was hurt too. Ridge says that Liam proposed to Steffy regardless but Hope says the point is that Steffy knew she had gone to Aspen after Liam. Ridge says that Steffy had every reason to be upset that. He says he was upset about that too. He tells Hope that Liam and Steffy were engaged and that was a commitment that she chose not to respect. Hope looks shocked at being denied something by Ridge for the first time. Ridge tells her she may have chose not to respect that commitment but she will respect their marriage.
Nick comes back inside after swimming. He assumes he is talking to his mother only to have Pam answer him. Alarmed, he asks Pam where his mother is. Pam tells him that she had to go back to the office. She changes the conversation and tells Nick that she didnt bring a swimsuit but what the heck. She begins undressing and tells Nick that Stephan and her used to have entire meals naked, except for the napkins. Nick looks horrified. Pam asks him if shell get her hair wet.
Thinking fast, Nick says he just put extra chlorine in the pool so now is not a good time to go in. Pam tells Nick that when she was a little girl she used to swim so much that her hair got green. She says she begged her mother to cut it off because she was scared the other kids would laugh at her but she never did so she never went out except for the pool. Suddenly excited, Pam asks Nick what she brought him. Nick guesses a couple of Eric Forrester designs but Pam says besides that. Nick says he doesnt know and guesses lemon bars. Pam says those piercing eyes of his just see right through her, dont they? Nick just shrugs looking uncomfortable.
Brooke tells Steffy she is right. She has been less than truthful to her father more than once. Steffy tells Brooke she didnt tell Liam that truth because she was scared he would find out. She says that she could have kept that secret to her grave but she didnt like the way it felt. Brooke says she sees how it is. Steffy asks her if she really does. She says that Liam and her are happy so could Brooke just leave them alone? Brooke tells Steffy that she is like the bank robber that confesses after all the money is gone and says its not quite as painful to make a clean breast of things when there is nothing to give back.
Brooke tells Steffy that she knows Liam, how he feels about Liam and how dedicated he is. She says that she took a calculated risk but she knew she could afford it. Steffy says that shell never do anything again that shell be scared to tell him. Brooke tells her that there is one thing Steffy should know about lying and that is you never get what you want. She says that you think you have it in the palm of your hands but then it just slips through your fingers. Brooke tells Steffy that Hope and Liam are together right now and says that everything she did to keep them apart is coming unravelled. Brooke says that Steffy cant lie without consequences and that is something shes going to have to learn.
Ridge tells Liam that he really needs to do something about his tendency to get into situations and then claiming not knowing how he got into them. Hope jumps to Liams defence and says that Liam didnt know until Steffy admitted to what shed done. Ridge ignores Hope and talks to Liam. He says that Amber was one thing but he is not going to claim he had a concussion when he married his daughter. Liam says that all he is saying is that he didnt know Hope was there hanging in midair and trying to get to him but was unable to. Ridge asks what would that have changed?
Liam goes speechless and Ridge tells him that the question before him was not about Steffy or Hope. It was a question whether he was willing to uphold his promise to marry his daughter. Liam says he did do that. Ridge asks that so he looked into his daughters eyes and told her that he loved her and he would continue to love her for better for worse, for richer for poorer, for as long as they both shall live, yes? Liam says thats right and Ridge asks him if he meant it. Liam says yes he did and Hope looks upset.
Ridge tells him hes not the first man to be in love with two women. He say its not an easy position to be in but ultimately you have to hurt one of them to keep from continuing to hurt both of them. Ridge tells him why doesnt he show himself some respect, show his daughter some respect and some respect for the vows both of them made to each other and go home? Hope cuts in by saying that she thought she was his daughter too and looking hurt.
Pam says that there is nothing like lemon bars with coffee in the morning. Nick says he always liked them and takes one. Pam says she already knows how he takes his coffee and Nick comments that its some memory she has. Pam says like an elephant. Nick gets to business and says that he noticed she wasnt carrying anything sketch-sized. Pam says there is a reason why they say good things come in small packages.
Nick laughs nervously and says yes, yes they do. He says he is going to put his shirt on. Pam tells him not to do that but he says its just a little chilly. Pam says lets not beat around the bushes. She says that she brought him two of Erics designs so now she wants something she wants. Pam says that she could go to jail for this so is he in or out? Nick goes silent. Pam tells him to put the shirt down. She leans back on the couch and says that she wants to enjoy the view.
Steffy says okay Brooke, she has things to do before Liam gets home, implying she should leave. Brooke asks if she thinks Liam will come home. Steffy asks her if she thinks shes a fool? She asks if Brooke really thought that she didnt know that Hope wasnt going to make a beeline towards Liam the moment she found something else to blame her for? She asks if Brooke thinks she doesnt know that Liam and Hope have feelings for each other? Brooke says that you never really get over your first love.
Steffy says yes but not everybody gets a happily ever after with their first love and Liam has accepted that. Brooke says that is what he says but he just dont want to hurt her. Steffy says or maybe what Liam and Hope had just wasnt really deep. Steffy says that Hope doesnt mind being comforted by Thomas and Thomas isnt just being nice, Brooke says but Hope loves Liam and she believes he loves her too. Steffy says no, Liam loves her now and her, her sisters and her daughter need to accept that.
Ridge tells Hope that wasnt fair, hes not playing favourites. Hope asks if hes really not because he has yet to acknowledge that what Steffy did was wrong. Ridge says what Steffy did was underhanded but she was protecting her engagement. Hope says she was engaged to Liam too but who was protecting her? Ridge says that it was her who chose to end it and tells her that now Steffy has a claim on Liam that she never had. Hope falls silent and Ridge tells Liam to go, his life is elsewhere not here. Liam listens to Ridge and leaves after sharing a look with Hope.
Hope tears into Ridge and says that Steffy only has a claim on Liam because she trapped him. Ridge tells her that Steffy didnt let her down and neither did he. It was Liam that said yes. Shocked, Hope asks him if hes taking her side. Ridge says that hes taking the side of this marriage that much is true. He says this family has had too many divorces, too much infidelity and too many scandals. Hope says yes, yes and the way Steffy took Liam from her is one of them. She say but Ride doesnt want to see that and underhandedly asks if thats because shes Deacons daughter. Shocked, Ridge says that she knows better than that but Hope just says that she used to think she did. Ridge tells Hope shes not a child anymore. He says she took a stand on principles and integrity but now she really needs to live those values.
Hope says that Steffy was right about one thing. Loving her mother doesnt make him her father. Ridge looks beyond hurt but Hope does not care and says and as for integrity, shed pit hers against Steffys any day. She screams that there is no integrity in this marriage it is based on lies and deceit and Liam still loves her.
Ridge asks her if Liam told her that but Hope says he didnt have to. She can feel it and so can Ridge. Hope tells Ridge to not tell her to give up on the man she loves. She says that Steffy may think Liam is hers but hes not.
She says and she is not going to just hand him over to her. She calls Ridge by his name rudely and threatens that she is never going to give up on Liam.
