Sheila: You’re my son. We have the same dna. The same blood running through our veins…
Steffy: Don’t listen to her!
Sheila: We are connected forever. I feel it in my heart, in my very soul and I know that you do, too.
Steffy: Finn. Finn, please just–just look at me. She’s manipulating you! All we have to do is just walk out of the room and never see her again.
Sheila: Why don’t you ever let finn make his own decisions? Son, I’m begging you. Please don’t turn your back on me. I love you. Just let me be a part of your life.
Quinn: Mm… mm, mm, mm. Well, you never cease to amaze me. This is such a romantic surprise.
Eric: I think there’s one surprise you could’ve done without, isn’t there?
Quinn: Oh, c’mon. Haven’t you heard? Sex is overrated.
Eric: If only.
Quinn: No, c’mon honey. You’ll see. This too shall pass. And I refuse to believe that this E.D. Is permanent. And who knows, maybe tonight is the night that changes everything.
Eric: I’m counting on that.
Ridge: Oh boy. Once again, I’m overdressed. What’re we doin’?
Carter: I spilled coffee all over myself so I’m changing my clothes.
Ridge: Coffee, huh?
Carter: I reached out to the judge about moving up that hearing date for sheila’s restraining order. Waiting to hear back from her.
Ridge: Well, anything you can do is appreciated. Thank you.
Carter: Yeah, I know you’re worried about steffy. I’ll convey the urgency.
Ridge: I am worried. Got sheila running around with some kind of… biological claim on her family. I’m also a little worried about my dad.
Ridge: I’m trying to get used to the idea that my dad forgave quinn and took her back.
Carter: I was caught off guard, too. But I’m guessing no one’s more surprised than quinn, right?
Ridge: She should be surprised after what she did…
Carter: Look, I genuinely want what’s best for those two. Eric and quinn love each other deeply. They belong together.
Eric: A dance, my love?
Eric: Right this way.
[ Romantic music ] Now you spin.
[ Quinn laughing ]
[ Quinn moaning ]
Quinn: Is everything okay?
Eric: What could be wrong? Dancing here with my beautiful wife. And make no mistake, your beauty is incomparable.
[ Quinn scoffing ]
Steffy: I get why this is hard for you! Sheila is your birth mother and you don’t want to shut her out. But you have another family, another family who needs to be protected from her!
Sheila: I am not a threat! Not to steffy! Not to the kids! I just want to know my son and my grandson!
Dr. Griffith: Everything all right in here?
Finn: Uh yeah, it’s under control, dr. Griffith. Do you have the results?
Dr. Griffith: Your tests and blood work came back normal. No dehydration. Good news, ms. Carter. You appear to be fine. I’ll have the nurse get your discharge started.
Sheila: Thank you, doctor.
[ Steffy laughing ]
Steffy: You see? She’s fine! There was nothing wrong with her to begin with! Sheila played you, finn. Oh, she played you. Some people have joint pain,
Carter: So, you don’t buy it? You don’t believe that eric and quinn love each other?
Ridge: After everything that went down, no. I’m not buying any of it.
Carter: But see, that’s it. That’s how the whole thing went down. Look, I was messed up after zoe, quinn was reeling from eric’s rejection, ridge. That’s how this happened. That was the perfect storm.
Ridge: Hey, why don’t we do this. Why don’t we see what happens tonight. Dad has planned something special for her. He’s a master of romance. So, we’ll see. Hey, I learned from him believe it or not.
Carter: Did you learn from him?
Ridge: Let’s get on with your night. Keep your shirt on.
Carter: I’ll try.
[ Phone ding ]
Eric: Sorry to leave you even for a moment. Something I had to take care of.
Quinn: No problem.
Eric: You admiring your portrait, are ya?
Well, I can’t help it.
Eric: No reason you should have to. I know how significant it is to you.
Quinn: Every time I look at that portrait, it just– it reminds me of how far I’ve come. I mean, I am married to mr. Eric forrester. I get to call this beautiful mansion my home. My jewelry line is successful beyond my wildest dreams, and… it’s all because of you. ‘Cause you love me. ‘Cause you opened your heart to me. I know you’re going through a really challenging time right now, but you know you’re not alone. I’m your wife. And I will always be right here, by your side.
Eric: My beautiful quinn.
Quinn: I love you… with every ounce of my being. And there is not one challenge out there that we can’t face together.
Eric: When you say it, I believe it.
Quinn: Yeah! You should believe it. You should. Eric, I know I’ve hurt you in the past, I have let you down. That’s never gonna happen again. My commitment to you is 1000%
Eric: I know that now, more than ever.
[ Quinn moaning ]
Sheila: I just, I wish there were something that I could say or do that would put a dent- in this hostility that you’re directing towards me.
Steffy: You can make it go away altogether. Leave and never come back.
Steffy: She’s a liar. This whole collapse– it was–it was a hoax. You realize that?
Finn: I don’t want to argue about that right now. I’m just glad that sheila’s okay.
Sheila: You know, your concern means a lot to me. It shows me that you do care about what happens to me.
Finn: I realize I owe you both an answer… from earlier. There’s only one thing I can do. Only one decision I can make.
Hey look at this!
Finn: I don’t know if your collapse was real or if you faked it. I mean, I certainly hope you didn’T. I’m glad you’re okay.
Sheila: You’re a compassionate man and I am so proud to call you my son.
Finn: When you told me you were my birth mother, I’d never been more shocked, or unprepared. I’ve wondered about you since dad and li told me I was adopted. What was your name? Did I look like you? Why couldn’t you keep me? I had so many questions that I never thought would be explained to me and then suddenly, there you were. Telling me things that I wanted to know. You gave me up so I would have chances in life that you weren’t equipped to give me. It was overwhelming, to say the least. You’ve had a profound impact on me and I’m glad we met. But my commitment is with steffy and our family. I wish you the best but I can’t have a relationship with you, not with my wife so against it. I’m sorry, but I can’t see you again, sheila. And you can’t be a grandmother to my son.
Sheila: No, you…
[ Voice breaking ] You don’t mean that, please finn. I… don’t shut me out. You and hayes are my family.
Finn: I wish you the best. I mean that.
Sheila: You can change his mind.
Steffy: Yeah, why would I do that?
Sheila: Because I’m his mother. Please, steffy. I didn’t come here to do battle with you. I’m not a bad person. I have goodness and love in my heart if you would just– just meet me in the middle, somewhere. Just give me a chance. Please, I will show you that I mean you no harm. I just want to know my son and my grandson.
Steffy: Goodbye, sheila.
[ Grunting ]
Quinn: Hey. I know it’s difficult but I don’t want you to worry. We’re gonna get through this.
Eric: You so beautifully expressed your devotion to me, but we have to be realistic. You’re a young, vibrant, sexy woman and you have needs that I may no longer be able to fulfill. Things that can only be expressed by making love.
Quinn: I don’t want you to think that way. C’mon, who knows what the future’s gonna hold! And no doctor has said this condition is permanent. Stop putting extra pressure on yourself by worrying about my needs. I’m happy, eric. Just being with you makes me happy.
Eric: Your happiness and your well-being are always gonna be my concern.
[ Door opening ]
Quinn: Carter. What are you doing here?
Carter: I got a text from eric.
Eric: I asked carter to join us. Don’t settle for products that give you a sort of white smile.
Quinn: You asked carter to join us?
Eric: Yes, yes, I did.
Carter: Looks like you were enjoying a lovely evening. I don’t want to intrude.
Eric: No, no intrusion. I know how close the two of you have become.
Carter: I’m sorry… where are we going with this?
Quinn: Nowhere. We’re not going anywhere with this. It stops here. Eric, you and I are back together. Why–why are we bringing up something so painful when we’ve already moved past it?
Eric: I didn’t ask carter here to rehash the past. You’re absolutely right. We’ve moved beyond that. My beautiful wife has moved home and she’s here in this house, with me. But I’m not able to be the husband to quinn that she deserves.
Eric: Look, this is, um. This is not a comfortable subject for me to talk about. I’ve seen doctors and so far, it’s been unsuccessful and, um–
Carter: You’re sick? I was concerned something was wrong. I asked quinn but she didn’t tell me.
Eric: No, no, no. Of course, she wouldn’T. And I love her for that.
Quinn: Why are you doing this?
Eric: At first, I tried to blame quinn for my shortcomings but I realized what I was really doing was just… covering my shame. I’m not able to satisfy my wife. You see what I mean, don’t you?
Carter: Yes… yes, and wow, um. I don’t know what to say, eric, but I’m sorry.
Eric: I was hoping for a spontaneous breakthrough when quinn moved home but unfortunately that hasn’t happened.
Quinn: Eric, why are you telling carter this?
Eric: Because I’ve come to the conclusion that just because my sex life is over, doesn’t mean yours has to be.
Steffy: Hayes goes down so much easier than kelly did at that age. So nice.
Finn: That age? She still fights it with everything she’s got.
Steffy: Yeah, and then all of a sudden she just passes out.
Finn: Should I open some wine?
Steffy: Oh babe, please. That sounds so great. Oh my goodness.
[ Finn sighing ]
Finn: I need to apologize again to you for sending that emoji to sheila. It was an impulse and I followed it. I mean, I should never have responded at all.
Steffy: I’m glad you realize that now.
Finn: I…I truly believed that she was out of our lives. That’s why I didn’t tell you. I thought it was one and done and I didn’t want to worry needlessly. I know now that was the wrong call.
Steffy: Well, you can’t beat yourself up. You were in a terrible position. And I get it, you wanted to know your mother. You were curious and that’s a completely normal reaction but, sheila is far from normal. I mean, faking a fall like that? That just proves that she hasn’t changed. She’s still this twisted, obsessive woman. But I am glad that you put your foot down, and you told her that she couldn’t be in your life, or hayes’. We still need to be vigilant. We have to keep our guard up. She doesn’t just walk away quietly. But you did the right thing breaking ties with her. And I’m really proud that you put our family first.
Sheila: Boy, it would be a mistake to count me out.
[ Grunting ] The forresters! They all write me off. They– they throw me away like I’m trash. But I will be a part of this family. Finn is my son and hayes is my grandson and I will be a part of their lives. And you better not try to stop me, steffy, or you’re gonna pay. You’re gonna pay dearly.
