Brooke says its a formality, a piece of paper. Brooke reminds Hope that she was ready to take it to the next level with Liam that night when she broke up with him. Hope says she doesnt want to relive that night and turns away but Brooke tells her to live it the way she originally planned it to now. Hope says she gets what Brooke is trying to do but she is proud of her decision. She says that she said she was going to wait until marriage and shes sticking to it.
Bill asks Liam if they can be done with this tension between them. He says he thinks that is how its supposed to go with fathers and sons and that they are supposed to be able to forgive and move on.

Liam tells his dad that they are going to be okay and he know he still loves him. Bill admits to that and says that is why cant shut up about the two women in his life. Liam gets frustrated again but Bill says he just wants whats best for him and Steffy and hes not going to stop saying it until he believes it.
Steffy thanks Rick for dinner and gets into a discussion about how he tried to con her into signing the annulment papers. Rick tries to change the subject by asking if Steffy wants another drink but Steffy pulls away the bottle saying that she wants to sleep and he needs to drive home. Rick wants to say for a while but Steffy tells him its late. Rick says just because their names are Eric and Stephanie it doesnt mean they need to turn in early like they do. Steffy smiles and tells Rick that she had fun today but he should leave her wanting more. Rick looks happy with what shes saying and the suggestive smile on her lips.
Liam asks Bill if he knows that they are very different people. He tells Bill that he chose Hope while he chose Steffy. Bill admits that they are different people and says that Hope is not ready while Steffy is ready and rearing to go. Bill tells Liam that he knows hes tempted by his wife. Liam says no he wants Hope but Bill says hes lying and says he can see right through him. Liam tells his dad to stop with this discussion but Bill tells him to live out his fantasies while he can because Hope isnt going to live up to his expectations when he has her on his marriage bed.

Hope tells her mother that she doesnt seem convinced. Hope tells her mother that she thought Brooke was proud of her decision. Brooke says she is but continues to push Hope to sleep with Liam.

Rick says she might not have to wait that long if he can still convince Steffy to sign.

Hope asks if she really does and Brooke says nothing is going to really happen between Rick and Steffy. Rick doesnt reply to that.

Just like his mother, Rick tries to tell Hope to be with Liam now. Hope finally snaps and tells Rick shes going to stay true to her principles. She says that girls look up to her and she has earned their trust by telling them its okay to wait until marriage.
