Steffy: Hopefully carter can get the restraining order done, because I cannot have sheila around me or my kids.
Ridge: I get that. Well, we doubled security here, and we’re gonna have to get some guards up at your house.
Steffy: We got to do that soon. I mean, I have the gate, but I don’t know if that’s–
Ridge: The gate? A gate doesn’t do anything. Dad has a gate, and she showed up at the party like she was invited! We can’t relax with sheila around, ever.
Steffy: I get that! I’ve already talked to finn. He’s gonna have to cut all ties with her, and he knows that. And amelia and paris, we just all have to vigilant about protecting the children.
Ridge: So finn understands, right? He–
Steffy: He knows. He’s heard about all the…
Ridge: He– he’s “heard about” it, that doesn’t mean that he lived it, right?
[ Steffy sighs ] He need to understand what this woman is capable of.
Finn: Sheila is not who I pictured she’d be.
Zende: No, I get it. And when you’re adopted… I mean, you can’t help wondering what your birth parents are like. It sucks that you can’t have a relationship with her, but…
Finn: Yeah, but I’m not even sure I would have wanted to. And no matter who she was, I had great parents, a great mom and dad who raised me.
Zende: Yeah. I feel the same way. Again, our circumstances are totally different, but… you know, I lucked out when it came to my adoptive parents. And it seems you did, too.
Paris: Well, they are your parents. They’re what count. Not her.
Finn: Well, thanks. It’s just… it’s all so crazy.
[ Paris sighs ]
Paris: Hey, uh… I know we were supposed to hang out today, but with everything going on here… can we just do it another time?
Eric: [Previously] I– I miss you! And I realized that I– I want to forgive you. It made me think twice about this. I want you to still be my wife. And I don’t want this divorce.
[ Paper tearing ]
Quinn: What do I do?
Carter: That’s up to you, quinn. Only you can make that decision.
Quinn: I’m always gonna adore eric. I– I’m always going to… to love the incredible life that we had together. He was an– he was so good to me for so much of our marriage. He was a kind… and wonderful husband. For him to give me another chance, it just– it just… it’s a testament to the kind of man that he is.
Carter: Eric’s a remarkable man.
Quinn: But then there’s you. You were there for me… when I was completely and utterly alone. We gave ourselves to each other in every way, body and soul, and– what we shared was so magical and unforgettable.
Carter: It was.
Quinn: What do I do? I don’t know if I can go back. I– I don’t know if that’s what I want.
Carter: Is it?
Quinn: Carter… I don’t think I can leave you.
Finn: I’ll be fine. Go have fun! You have plans. You don’t need to worry about me.
Paris: I am not leaving you here alone, finn.
Zende: She’s right. It’s not a big deal. You have a lot going on right now, and I can see paris whenever. I came by just to give her a kiss, anyway.
Paris: Oh, you did?
Zende: Yeah, I did.
Zende: Okay, I’m good.
[ Paris chuckles] Hey, good luck with everything. Seriously.
Finn: Thanks, man.
Paris: Okay. I will text you later.
Zende: You better.
Finn: You need to go with zende. You don’t need to stay here and worry with me.
Paris: No, I am good right where I am, thank you very much. I know I keep saying this, but you and steffy have been so cool to me. If there’s anything you need from me, just ask.
Finn: There is one favor I’d like to ask.
Finn: Don’t tell steffy about sheila reaching out to me.
Quinn: I don’t know what to do.
[ Sniffles ] I’m so confused. On one hand, I– I am… I’m relieved that eric wants to work on our marriage, but then… then I look at you, and I… I remember how incredible it feels to be in your arms.
Carter: Deep down… I think you know what needs to be done.
[ Cell phone chiming ]
Quinn: That’s eric calling.
[ Chiming continues ]
[ Beep ]
Carter: Hey, eric.
Eric: Carter, good. Um, I’m not interrupting, am I? Listen, um… quinn’s portrait. Do you still have it? Did you throw it away, or…?
Carter: No. I didn’t get rid of it. I– I put it storage.
Eric: That’s wonderful! Could you bring it by the house for me?
[ Chuckling ] Look, this may come as a surprise to you, but, uh… well, quinn and I did not sign the papers. We’re not getting a divorce. I don’t want to lose her. Uh… I want my wife back. I love her.
[ Quinn inhaling deeply ]
Carter: I see.
Eric: Look, I know it’s not part of your job description, but, uh, is it possible that you could bring it to the house right away?
Carter: Yeah. Yeah, I’ll be there right away.
Eric: Great, carter. I appreciate it. Thank you.
[ Phone beeps ]
Carter: [ Inhales ] Well, you heard the man. You better get going.
Quinn: You know, you don’t have to do that–
Carter: I know I don’t have to. And a part of me doesn’t want to, a big part, quinn, but I think this is what’s best for you. Go back. Go be mrs. Eric forrester. On the outside, I looked fine.
Ridge: I get it. It’s your husband, you want to be loyal to him. You trust him–
Steffy: I just know him. He’ll listen to me.
Ridge: Okay. Not even about him. What about– what about her? Sheila. This is his birth mother. You think she’s just gonna walk away from finn? All she ever wanted to do was be part of this family. She’s devious!
Steffy: She scares me too, dad! But I am confident that finn’s not gonna have any interaction with sheila, ever again.
Finn: Steffy doesn’t know that sheila texted me, and all I did was respond with an emoji.
Paris: A heart emoji.
Finn: And that’s– that’s all it is. Me responding that I received the message, and hopefully by just sending an emoji and not actually responding, she’ll read between the lines and see that she can’t contact me anymore. But can you please just… keep this between us, paris? There’s no reason for steffy to know about this. Nothing is gonna come of it, and it’s just gonna make her worry even more.
Paris: …Okay. I won’t say anything to steffy.
Paris: It’ll be our secret.
Quinn: How can I say goodbye to you?
Carter: Maybe we should just… see this for what it is. You’re eric’s wife. What he did, tearing up the divorce papers… trusting you enough to remain married to you… quinn, that’s an incredible act of grace on his part.
Quinn: It was.
Carter: Look, I will never forget our connection. I feel it as deeply as you do. But I think your heart… is with your husband. This could be your last chance. Take it. Go back to eric. Be with him, quinn. Go home. I want this for you. I know eric can give you a wonderful, fulfilling life. And what happened here, you know, these last several weeks, no one will know. It stays between us. I won’T…
[ Sniffles ] I won’t destroy what you and eric… what you guys will have.
Quinn: You would do that for me?
Carter: I want you to be happy.
Quinn: But you make me happy! [ Sobs ]
Carter: So does eric. Look… the history that you two share… what you’ve been though… it’s gonna make your marriage even stronger.>> Quinn: You, carter… are such a gift to me. I will cherish our time together.
Carter: So will I.
Quinn: I’m gonna miss you. I can feel it. I feel like I’m leaving a part of me behind.
Carter: I’ll hold on to what you’ve given me, quinn, but you don’t need me to tell you what you need to do.
Quinn: So this is goodbye?
[ Quinn sobs ]
[ Inhaling deeply ] …You’re right. I love my husband.
[ Sniffling ] Carter… I love you.
Carter: I love you too.
