Rick laughs and says that he didnt know he had a reputation, He ask her to tell him about it so he can live up to it.
Liam says that Caroline seems really great. Katie says that maybe Hope and her can become friends. Liam says she could use one of those right now. Bill says the simple solution to Hopes problems is that she move out and Steffy move back in. Karen says isnt it a little too late for that.
Liam says that its not going to happen because he doesnt want it to happen. He says that he wants to be with Hope and the way shes handles herself with all the controversy has been amazing. He says one minute shes down and the next shes up, he really loves her for that. Bill looks him in the eye and asks him if the movie One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest means anything to him.
Hope asks Amber what she wants. She says Amber was eavesdropping and expresses anger at Amber having heard her private conversation with her psychiatrist. Amber says she was asking for anti-anxiety pills. Hope says that was also very private and turns away from Amber. Amber says it isnt a big deal. Hope says that she cant tell anyone about this. Amber figures out that no one else knows about the pills Hope is taking or her doctor but Brooke. She says Hope is keeping this from Liam. Hope says shes not discussing this with Amber. Amber says that Hope and her both have something in common.
Hope says they dont but Amber points out how they both have something to lose. Hope says thats not true. She says Liam loves her and Steffy is gone so there is no longer a threat. Amber says shes not talking about Steffy. She says that its all these secrets Hope is keeping from Liam and reminds her that this kind of thing is just why Liam left Steffy.
Hope says shes not listening to this and turns away again. Amber says sometimes we are not as honest to the people that we love when we should be. She says thats when we end up losing them. Hope looks back at her and Amber tells her she doesnt want to lose Rick. She tells her she doesnt want her to lose Liam either.
