Steffy: Oh, this outfit could be so cute for our little flower girl. Oh, my goodness.
Finn: What’s that? Your sister might upstage us? Valid concern.
Steffy: Are you excited for mommy and daddy to get married? I am. We’re gonna have a big party. And you’re gonna meet everyone. And you’re gonna see your daddy’s parents. They’re gonna be super excited to meet you. Daddy just keeps them hidden for some reason.
Finn: Not for long though, because like it or not there’s no way my parents would miss our wedding.
Eric: All right. Good. I pulled your hair, didn’t I? I’m sorry. Okay. I won’t do it. I’m on it. Can I see this the other way.
Brooke: You know, it never gets old. Seeing the finishing touches of a gorgeous design.
Ridge: Well, this one’s all dad.
Brooke: Oh. Well, you meant what you said then, eric. You’re recommitted to your art. And it’s no coincidence that your creative juices are flowing now that a negative energy is out of your life.
Eric: Well, I admit I feel like I’m on a roll. I really do. Thank you karen, I appreciate it.
Karen: Thank you.
Eric: We’re all done. Okay. There you go. Carter.
Eric: So, any news about the divorce?
Carter: No news yet, but try not to worry. These things can take time.
Brooke: Okay. Well, could you speed up the process a little bit? The sooner quinn is out of eric’s life, out of all of our lives, the better.
Quinn: Carter, I need to see you.
Ridge: Has quinn even hired a lawyer?
Eric: No, she hadn’T. At least, she hadn’t the other day when I saw her.
Brooke: I can’t believe she showed up here. It was unsettling to see her.
Eric: Have you? Carter, have you seen her?
Carter: When she came here? Uh, no. But ridge and brooke told me all about it.
Brooke: Why does she think she can just waltz into the building? She’s not allowed here. Nobody wants to see her.
Carter: Uh, we can send a strongly-worded reminder for her to stay away.
Carter: In fact, I’ll get on that right now.
Eric: Good. I’d appreciate that. And carter, get on it, will you, please? My whole divorce is in your hands. Let’s go.
Brooke: You’re a good guy, carter. And you’re not accustomed to playing dirty. But for eric’s sake, you’re gonna have to. You’re his attorney. It’s your job to stick it to quinn.
Steffy: Like it or not… finn, your parents can’t be that bad.
Finn: No. No, they aren’T. And I didn’t mean to give you that impression.
Steffy: Well, you have to admit, you have been a little secretive. Like, every time I bring them up, you always change the subject. Is there a reason?
Finn: There is something you should know. Something I probably should’ve told you a long time ago.
Brooke: Quinn came over here, a place she’s not welcome, and she told you she’s done apologizing?
Eric: Yes, she did.
Brook: Well, the nerve of her. After everything she’s done, eric. She cheated on you. And now, she doesn’t want to admit she was wrong?
Eric: Well, she has admitted that time after time, after time. But that’s the whole point, that she said she’s finished doing that. She wants to move on.
Brook: Well, how convenient. She gets to forget about all the pain that she caused.
Eric: Yeah. Well, I’m not about to defend her, not really. She caused me a lot of pain. I caused her a lot of pain.
Ridge: Really, how was that?
Eric: Well, she claims it’s because I was, uh… I was never defending her. I was always taking the family side against her, taking your side, brooke. You know, that’s quinn’s biggest problem, is her insecurity about you. She may have broken my trust, and she may have destroyed our marriage, and caused this divorce to happen but, it’s my constantly valuing you over her that I have to take some responsibility for.
Carter: Quinn? Quinn?
Quinn: Thanks for coming.
Carter: What’s going on?
Quinn: I had to see you. Were you with eric when I texted?
Carter: Yeah. Ridge and brooke too, but I was careful.
Quinn: I can only imagine what brooke was saying about me. Not that I care.
Carter: What’s this about?
Quinn: You have to ask.
Steffy: So you have been hiding something? It wasn’t just my imagination.
Finn: No, not hiding. Um, avoiding maybe.
Steffy: Well, now, I feel bad. I’ve been joking that you had some deep dark secret and now, I’m finding out that you’re actually struggling with something.
Finn: No, that’s just it. I–I’m really not. How can I put this? Um… have you ever been to a party and you’re talking with someone who knows your name but you’ve forgotten theirs and it’s just too embarrassing to ask?
Steffy: Okay. Yeah–yeah.
Steffy: I–I have been there but what’S…
Finn: And then you see them a week later and you definitely can’t ask them then, right?
Steffy: No, you can’T. You’re, like, in this vicious cycle you have to, like, never ask them for the rest of your life.
Finn: Exactly. Right. That’s what this, kind of, feels like. You know, I could have told you the first time you asked about my parents but… for some reason, I just–I–I didn’T. And then before I knew it, it just became too awkward to mention.
Steffy: But I’m not gonna judge. Look at my family.
Finn: Your family is great.
Steffy: Finn you can tell me anything. It’s a safe place. I am your soon-to-be wife, and a supportive one at that.
[ Knock on door ]
Finn: Are you expecting someone?
Steffy: No, but I’m gonna go answer, I don’t wanna– to wake up hayes. I just put him down.
Finn: Yeah. I really hope he doesn’t wake up.
Jack: Ah, you must be steffy. Jack finnegan.
Dry eye symptoms
driving you crazy?
Ridge: You see what she’s doing, right? She’s trying to make you feel like you made a mistake. Trying to justify sleeping with another man.
Eric: Yeah, I get that. All right. I get that. And I’m just saying it’s not all–it’s not all black and white. I was not the perfect husband. But the fact is, that doesn’t make me any less angry about what’s happened here.
Brooke: And you have every right to feel that way, eric, but just don’t let her get to you. You’re vulnerable right now. She could manipulate you.
Eric: Am I so easily manipulated, brooke?
Brooke: No. I just don’t want her to have the opportunity, because I know you. You don’t like being alone and you never have. Now, if she keeps coming at you like this… look, the best thing to do is just to speed up this process and get the divorce finalized as soon as possible. No more conversations with quinn. She’s trouble, and you know it. Any more communication with her goes through the lawyers. She’s in carter’s hands right now. Not yours.
Quinn: I can’t stop thinking about you. How you make me feel. And I keep thinking about eric… and our marriage ending. Everything that’s happened is just–it’S… it’s unbelievable.
Carter: Well, you… haven’t signed the divorce papers yet. There’s always a chance. Don’t have to give up. You can convince eric to take you back, you know. Deep down, he still loves you. And how could he not? You’re beautiful. You’re sexy. You’re playful. You are the most spellbinding, passionate woman… I’ve ever met.
Finn: Dad, what are you doing here?
Jack: Meeting my grandchild, I hope, now that I’ve, finally met my future daughter-in-law.
Steffy: Well, I’m very glad you’re here.
Jack: Ah, looking good son. Malibu agrees with you.
Finn: Yeah. Well, I have no complaints. Is mom not with you?
Jack: No, she had to catch a later flight. I hope it’s all right that I showed up unannounced. I thought it might be fun to surprise you.
Finn: Oh, yeah. Uh, I’m surprised but it’s good to see you.
Jack: So, this rumored grandchild of mine, he’s around here somewhere, I presume?
Steffy: He’s– he’s asleep right now, but he’ll be thrilled to meet you. I’m thrilled to meet you. It’s so nice to put a face to the name. Starting to think you are imaginary.
Jack: Oh, I’m sure finn wishes that sometimes.
Finn: Oh, come on. That is not true. I couldn’t have asked for better parents.
Steffy: I’m really looking forward to getting to know you. Finn has been very immersed with my family for quite some time, so it’ll be nice to get to know everyone, especially since our son’s part of it. And soon I will be too.
Jack: Well, we welcome you with open arms.
Steffy: Thank you. It means a lot. Finn knows family is very important to me, so I’m–I’m very happy to be joining yours.

Quinn: But we shouldn’T.
Carter: Uh-hmm. But I can’t stop.
Quinn: Hmm. Carter… what are we doing? I’m too old for you.
Carter: What are you talking about?
Quinn: No, I don’t mean it that way. I mean… you’re going to want to have a family someday, children. I can’t give that to you.
Carter: I want you.
Quinn: Well, in that case…
Carter: [ Chuckling ]
Jack: Adorable, beyond adorable. He’s gonna have your mother wrapped around his little finger.
Finn: Oh, no doubt.
Steffy: Oh, my mother, too.
Finn: Hayes is named after her, right?
Steffy: He is. I’m sure finn told you I also have a daughter named kelly and she’s named after her father’s mother.
Jack: So, you’d better get working on baby number three so your mom doesn’t get jealous.
Finn: Yeah, I don’t know. Two is pretty intense. And don’t worry, my mom is not the jealous type.
Finn: But I–actually, I was–I was just gonna open up to steffy about our family.
Jack: You haven’t told her?
Finn: Uh, no, it never really came up, but now that you guys are meeting, uh, I think this is… the perfect time to have that conversation.
Steffy: Okay, you two are being very mysterious.
Finn: Oh, it’s nothing bad. It’s actually pretty awesome. I didn’t know how lucky I am. Because, if things came out differently, who knows where I’d be right now. And what I’m about to tell you, just… know that it doesn’t define me. But it’s a part of me, an important part. And it’s something you should definitely know because it affects hayes.
Steffy: You swear this isn’t bad?
Finn: It’s not, no– it’s just, you know, often as a doctor, I have to ask patients about family history, and that’s something I… personally am never able to answer. And hayes won’t be able to either, at least on my side. Look, I…grew up with an amazing, an amazing family and a great home with great parents, but… biologically, I am not theirs. I’m adopted.
Steffy: Oh. Wow. Uh…you had me worried for a second, I mean… did you always know?
Jack: Oh, yeah, we… explained it to him from an early age.
Steffy: Oh. Do you know anything about your birth parents?
Finn: No. Um…no, um, I’ve–I’ve never met them, but I’ve often wondered. I’ve thought about looking them up, you know, like, especially on my birthday. I always think of my birth mother then… wondering the reason for giving me away. It’d be cool to thank them one day… you know, for giving me such great parents. I hope you’re not upset for not telling you.
Steffy: No. No, not at all. I’M… I’m glad that you did. It’s important, you know. We need to know this for– for hayes because… that means we don’t know much about his history or–or background. But you and your wife, you’re a part of hayes. You made finn the man he is… and I love you so much, no matter where you came from.
Jack: Do I tell them?
