Steffy: If we don’t take off soon, we’re gonna miss our meeting.

Hope: Well, it’s not like they can start without us.

Steffy: What kind of weather is holding us up?

Hope: Well, I can check.

Steffy: No, no, you don’t have to do that. It’s not gonna change anything. I just hate being captive.

[Sighs] You seem so zen.

Hope: Well, for once, I’m not worried about what’s going on at home right now, whereas you… you have every right to be.

Steffy: It just makes me feel so nervous that sheila is out there. I don’t know. I’m starting to think that I-I-I should miss the meeting and go home to be with finn and the kids.

Sheila: Finn?

Finn: I can’t believe this. She’s outside our door. This can’t happen.

Jack: Don’t you see it’s the perfect opportunity? Steffy’s on a plane. Kelly’s with a sitter. It’s just you and me here.

Finn: No.

Jack: Sheila will be in and out before you know it. Just let her see you and hayes, and she’ll be gone for good. It’s what’s best, finn, for your family and ours.

Quinn: You are so precious to me. I hope you know that.

Eric: Well, if I didn’t, you’re convincing me. You could’ve walked out that door and never come back. Nobody would’ve blamed you. You’re a beautiful, vibrant woman in the prime of her life with needs that I… I can’t fulfill.

Quinn: Stop talking like this is a permanent condition.

Eric: What if it is, quinn? What if it is?

Quinn: Then I’ll love you anyway.

[Door opens]

Brooke: So it’s true. You’re back together.

Ridge: Here I thought carter was wrong, that he misinterpreted something.

Brooke: How could you do this, eric? How could you take quinn back after the way she betrayed you?

Quinn: Okay, look, I realize this isn’t the outcome that either of you wanted, but it’s what eric and i want, both of us. So why don’t we try to be big people here and let things be as they are?

Brooke: Oh, yeah, you’d like that, wouldn’t you, for us just to forget about what you did?

Quinn: Eric forgave me.

Ridge: But he shouldn’t have.

Quinn: Well, that’s not really your call, ridge, or yours. Look, I appreciate that you love eric and want what’s best for him, but he’s decided that that’s me. We’re not getting divorced. I’m not moving out, so why don’t you get off his case? He has enough to deal with.

[Air traffic control chatter]

Steffy: Do you think I’m overreacting?

Hope: About sheila? No. I mean, is that even possible?

Steffy: I mean, finn is more than capable of standing his ground. It’s just, I don’t know. Um… I have a feeling that I-I shouldn’t be here. Something’s telling me I need to be home with finn and the kids.

Sheila: Well, did you work it out? Are they both here– finn and hayes?

Jack: Yes.

Sheila: Then I wanna come in.

Jack: I need more time to get through to my son. Stay put.

Sheila: But, uh–

Finn: Is she gone?

Jack: No, but you want her to be, right?

Finn: That’s how it has to be.

Jack: No. This is how you do it. You allow sheila this moment, and steffy will never have to worry about her again.

Tums vs. Mozzarella stick

Brooke: You didn’t waste any time, did you?

Quinn: I beg your pardon?

Brooke: Your portrait back above the fireplace. You got it there lickety split.

Eric: Quinn had nothing to do with that. I asked carter to bring that back. Fortunately, he hadn’t thrown it out.

Brooke: Eric, have you forgotten what she did?

Eric: No. I’m glad to say that my brain is working just fine.

Ridge: No one is saying anything about your brain. She had an affair with carter under your nose.

Brooke: She turned to another man, and why? No good reason as far as I can see.

Eric: Look, you don’t you don’t know what was going on between us.

Brooke: Oh, so you’re saying that she’s justified in sleeping with carter?

Eric: No, I’m saying that I bear some responsibility for this.

Brooke: Oh, god.

Ridge: How is that? You’re–that’s not true.

Eric: I pushed her right into carter’s arms.

Brooke: Oh, eric, please stop. There’s no good reason for her to betray you like that.

Eric: It’s way more complicated than either one of you realizes. The point is quinn is still my wife.

Quinn: Eric and I have faced challenges before. This time won’t be any different.

Hope: I really thought we’d seen the last of sheila.

Steffy: You know what scares me? There’s a blood tie, and that means she’s never gonna be gone.

Hope: But you told finn to keep her away, right?

Steffy: Yeah, but he can only try so much. It’s sheila we’re talking about. She’s relentless.

Hope: You’re really worried, aren’t you?

Steffy: Yeah, of course I am. You know what she’s capable of. She’s hayes’ biological grandmother. I don’t think she’s gonna disappear.

Hope: Well, maybe she will for finn. I mean, he’s her son after all, and I could understand her wanting to stay on decent terms with him, even if it is for selfish reasons, but I mean, does finn even want to get to know sheila for himself?

Steffy: That can’t happen. He needs to keep her as far away from hayes as possible.

Sheila: How long am i supposed to wait out here?

Jack: 10 minutes. That’s all I’m asking. Go get hayes. I’ll let sheila in. We’ll meet in the middle. Give her her moment. She’ll be history.

Finn: That can’t happen.

Jack: Damn it, it has to.

Sheila: I wanna hold my grandson in my arms just once.

Jack: Just impossible. Finn and steffy would never allow it.

Sheila: Jack, you have to make it happen, then your secret will be safe. Your life will never change.

Finn: Dad, are you listening to me? Why do you care so much?

Jack: Because I want her out of our lives as much as steffy and the forresters do, believe me, and this is how we accomplish that. I know what I’m talking about, finn. I got rid of sheila before. Just give her this one moment, and we’ll never have to deal with her again.

Finn: There’s no way you can be sure of that.

[Door closes] Sorry. I couldn’t wait any longer.

Jack: You think barging in here without being invited is helping your cause?

Finn: You can’t be here. You gotta go.

Sheila: Well, it hurts me to hear you say that, but I understand. I really– I really do.

Sheila: You’ve heard nothing but terrible things about me, finn, but please listen to your father. He’s telling you the truth. I just wanted to see you one more time and hold my grandson. Look, we’re halfway there. I’m standing here. I’m looking at you. All that’s left is for you to put hayes in my arms. Please, finn. Just allow me this one thing. Moment of truth.

Quinn: Look, I know you don’t approve of me or particularly like me. You hate that my portrait is on the wall and that I’m back in this house.

Brooke: Eric never should have married you in the first place.

Quinn: Well, he did, brooke, for better or for worse. And that means sometimes challenges come up, and we face them together, right?

Eric: Absolutely.

Ridge: So just so I understand, so sleeping with another man is just another challenge?

Quinn: Are you gonna say that? I mean, what, your marriage to brooke has been smooth sailing this whole time? Neither of you has ever strayed? Yeah, I don’t think you wanna go there. Look, I appreciate that you always think about eric with concern, but he’s a grown man. And he doesn’t need you to dictate his life to him. Besides, there is a lot more going on here that you don’t know about, so if you really care about your father, you will just let him be.

[Jet roaring]


Pilot: Sorry, ladies, we’re still in a bit of a holding pattern. I’ll keep you updated when we’ll be airborne.


Steffy: Okay, I think this is the universe telling me something. I can’t go. I can’t do this. I gotta be home with finn and the kids. I’m sorry to bail on you.

Hope: No, it’s okay. Go with your gut. I will handle the meeting.

Steffy: I owe you.

Hope: Don’t worry about it.

Steffy: Well, maybe I should call finn, tell him I’m on the way.

Hope: Or you could always surprise him.

Finn: I don’t wanna sound harsh, but you can’t be here.

Sheila: I understand. I really do. Steffy and the forresters think I’m evil incarnate. I’m sure steffy laid down the law saying that under no circumstances am I to go anywhere near you or hayes. But I’m here now. Steffy’s not. Jack told me that she’s– she’s out of town. She’s–she’s never gonna know that I saw my grandson.

Finn: I can’t betray steffy’s trust.

Sheila: You’re a good man, finn… an honorable one. I am so proud of you. You know, when I saw you at your wedding, it– it took my breath away. I’ve been waiting decades for that moment, though. I am–I am sorry that everyone was upset with my presence. I…I still wouldn’t have changed a thing. There’s something you need to know. Giving you away was the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life. You were wanted. Desperately wanted. I just wasn’t in a position to give you the life you deserved.

Finn: And I believe you.

Sheila: Then believe this, too. I never stopped loving you. I never stopped wanting to see you, and now I wanna see my grandson. Oh, I bet you he’s a looker, huh?

Finn: Yeah. Yeah, hayes is a little miracle.

Sheila: Well, who’s he look like, you or steffy?

Finn: Little of both.

Sheila: Well, let me see. Let me see for myself.

Finn: I’m sorry. I can’T.

Sheila: This is the only thing I’m gonna ask of you. Just wanna see my grandson just once. Is that– is that too much to ask? I just want the gift of experiencing holding my grandbaby in my arms, and then I’ll–I’ll be gone. Be gone forever. I’m your mom. Finn, I’m not gonna lie to you. So please, just… let me hold him. Please? Go get hayes and let me hold him.

Brooke: Eric, don’t you remember how you felt when you found out about quinn and carter? You were hurt, and you were betrayed. She had an affair with a man that you treat like family, that you work with every single day. How can you forgive her for that?

Eric: Okay, listen to me. Listen to me, both of you. A lot goes on in a life of a couple that’s not meant for public consumption, and you know it. Now I appreciate you coming here trying to protect me, but I don’t need that. Quinn is my wife. I love her. She lights up my world. She brings joy and passion to me and fulfillment, and I just hope to be able to give that back to her. Now you’ve expressed yourselves. Thank you very much. That’s enough.

Ridge: I’m sorry. Are you asking us to leave?

Eric: Yes, I am. Please go.

Brooke: Eric, please…

Eric: Brooke, please.

Brooke: …Think about what you’re doing here.

Eric: Please. Go.

[Door opens]

[Door closes]

Quinn: I’m sorry, sweetheart, that you had to go through that, just after you finally confessed to me about your E.D.

Eric: Yeah. You know, I meant what I said. I adore you. You’ve brought so much joy and passion into my life. I’m just afraid I’m not gonna be able to return it in kind.

Quinn: And I meant what I said. This is just another challenge, and we know how to work with those, right? Together as husband and wife. We’re gonna get through this.

Sheila: Look at you, how handsome you are, an accomplished doctor. I can’t believe that you actually came from me. I… I was in a troubled place back then, but there’s one thing that I did do that was good, and that was giving you up so that you wouldn’T… be tainted by my instability. You had a great life, I mean, being raised by li and jack, and I’m grateful. I really am grateful. I never could have given you that. I was too confused, too– too self-centered. But I’m not that woman anymore. But I can and I will put your wishes first. I’m not asking for a permanent place in your life, finn. I’m just asking for a moment, just a moment to hold my grandson. Please? Just let me hold hayes, and I will be gone. It’ll be like I was never here.

Finn: You swear that if i give you this, this moment, that you’ll leave? Steffy and the forresters, they will never have to worry about you again?

Sheila: Yes, I promise. I swear. Please, I…I’m begging you.

Finn: Yeah, I mean, I really shouldn’t do this, but I don’T…

[Sighs] I…fine. Okay? Just…fine.

Sheila: Thank you.

Finn: Wait here.

[Door opens]

Jack: You hold hayes, and then you disappear forever. I mean it, sheila. Don’t ever come back here again.

Sheila: Ohh.

Finn: I need to hear you say it. After this, you’ll leave, and you’ll never come back.

Sheila: I’ll leave, and I promise I’ll never come back. Oh. Oh. [Gasps] Oh. Thank you.

[Whispers] He’s so beautiful. I’m your grandma, hayes. And I have been dying to meet you.& I have. Hey. You take my breath away just like your daddy did. My grandson. Oh. My precious, perfect grandson. It’s my grandson, my family. Oh, finn, thank you so much.

Finn: Yeah.

[Seabirds calling in distance]

Steffy: [Sighs]

[Keys jangle]

Finn: I should take him. Yeah, you need to leave.

Sheila: No, please. Please let me just hold him a little longer. I just– I don’t ever wanna forget this exquisite little face.

Steffy: Finn? Baby, I just…

[Door closes] I couldn’t go to san francisco. I couldn’t deal with the fog.

[Gasps] Sheila!
