Eric: I know how she feels about me. And I know how she feels about you. I think that we should encourage that. The night is yours if you want. Good morning. We should talk about last night.
Quinn: I would rather talk about you. Do you have any appointments with your doctors coming up?
Eric: Quinn, darling, I’ve been seeing doctors for quite some time now and it hasn’t helped.
Quinn: You can’t give up, eric.
Eric: I’m being realistic. And I think you should be too, about your needs.
Ridge: I know that look. You’re thinking about her, aren’t you?
Ridge: Zoe. She’s killing it over there in paris. You saw this, right?
Carter: Yeah. I did see it and I’m happy for her. I wish zoe all the best.
Ridge: Any regrets?
Carter: Yeah. Yeah, I have regrets. About a lot of things.
Steffy: I’m so glad we’re finally doing this.
Finn: A beach day with the whole gang? What could be better?
Liam: Yeah, I’m not so sure amelia would sign off on that. I think she’s got her hands full with douglas, beth and kelly. Although, that is a sweet sandcastle.
Finn: Castles. You hear that, little man? You ready to go join the fun?
Steffy: You think he needs a diaper change first?
Liam: Who are we talking about here, hayes or finn?
Hope: Oh my gosh.
Finn: And they say I tell the lame jokes.
Steffy: Well, you both do.
[ Laughing ]
Steffy: Let’s hope that doesn’t rub off on you because we only need one comedian in the house.
Liam: Just one. Just one.
Hope: He’s so cute. Liam and I, we’re so happy for your family. Right little guy? Yeah.
Finn: Nothing better than being a new dad.
Steffy: Unless it’s being a new mom.
Hope: Mmm. Yeah. I think I could have 20 more.
Liam: What? What? A little ambitious, don’t you think?
Finn: Whoa, okay, yes. I think you’re mom is right.
Steffy: Told you.
Finn: Let’s get you cleaned up, you little stinker. Let’s make this quick.
[ Laughing ]
Hope: It really is wonderful seeing you so happy and at peace.
Ridge: Many regrets. Wanna explain that?
Carter: What’s to explain, ridge? We all have regrets, right? About something.
Ridge: Or someone?
Carter: Is there a reason you needed to see me?
Ridge: Yeah, um, wanted to see if you had talked to dad, see if he has a proposition for you. What–what are you doing? What is this? What’s going on with you?
Quinn: Can I get you something for breakfast? Would you like pancakes or french toast? What’s your pleasure?
Eric: I’m looking at her. Except I can’t be the husband that she deserves.
Quinn: Stop saying that, okay? You’re everything I need.
Eric: Not everything. I can’t be your lover.
Quinn: Eric, that will change.
Eric: No, we both know it won’T. All right, look, I’ll say it one more time. And then I’ll drop it. Your sex life does not have to be over just because mine is. I’m going into the office. I’ll see you there later. I love you, quinn.
Quinn: I love you, too. In this ad pay attention to the actor’s gums.
Hope: Sunscreen. Is there anything else that we are missing?
Finn: I can’t believe it. Hayes, he passed out right on the changing table. He’s out cold.
Hope: That’s fine. We can chill here for a bit.
Liam: Works for me. I’m out of breath anyway.
Finn: Okay, what do you guys wanna talk about? Do you wanna swap baby stories? We’ve got a ton of them.
Steffy: You can tell he’s a proud papa.
Finn: And very happy husband.
Hope: Aw, that’s so great. And you deserve it, especially after…
Finn: Uh, no, it’s okay. You can say it. Especially after what happened at the wedding reception. And since… I won’t lie. Steffy and I, we’ve had our challenges these past few weeks, but don’t all marriages?
Steffy: Yeah, but nothing really compares to the challenges sheila presents.
Liam: Presents? Like presents currently? I thought she left town.
Steffy: Uh, yeah, so did we. But she, um, she came back. And then she “collapsed” when she didn’t get what she wanted. Yeah, I think it was just a desperate ploy to attach herself to finn and hayes, but it didn’t work, did it?
Eric: There’s a welcome sight.
[ Chuckling ]
Ridge: About to say the same. You finally got here, huh?
Eric: I can come in here any time I like. This is my building. My desk. My drawing table. Everything’s mine here.
Ridge: Yeah, they’re your pens. What are you, five? Yes, this is all yours. Also, this is yours and it needs your signature, so whenever you have a moment.
Eric: Put that on my desk.
Eric: I see you’re busy at it yourself this morning.
Ridge: Yeah, no, I got here on time, started working and got some things done. Yeah, that’s what I did.
Ridge: And, um, I talked to carter… about this proposal. I’m not sure, dad. It, uh, sounds a little strange to me. And I feel it’s a big price to pay.
Eric: Oh, you mean–
Ridge: No, like you said, it’s your shop, it’s all good and in the end–
Eric: No, no, you’re talking about the berlin boutique acquisition, right?
Ridge: What else would I be talking about?
Eric: So what about it?
Ridge: What is wrong with you today? Why are you so fuzzy and weird? You just tired from reconnecting with quinn last night and this morning?
Eric: You know what, I am determined to give quinn the life that she… that she deserves.
Eric: I know how the two of you feel about each other. I do. I think that we should encourage that.
Quinn: Encourage it?
Carter: I miss you so much. I miss every inch of you. I miss kissing you, I miss touching you. I miss making love to you. I think about you all the time.
Quinn: Carter. I had to see you. We need to talk about what happened last night. On the outside, I looked fine.
Finn: And I have to admit to being conflicted. For years, I imagined what it would be like to meet my birth mother. Just– the thing is, I never imagined it being someone like sheila.
Liam: Yeah, so how did you end things with her?
Hope: Yeah, is she still in the hospital?
Steffy: No, no. The doctors ran tests but they couldn’t find anything. I’m not surprised.
Liam: So she’s discharged.
Steffy: Yeah, but finn made it very to clear to her she couldn’t be in his life of hayes’.
Finn: Couldn’t have sheila continuing to disrupt my family, no matter how much she claims she loves and cares about me.
Hope: Well, do you think she will actually stay away?
Steffy: I know what you’re thinking. You’re worried about kelly.
Liam: Yes, I’ve mentioned that before but I also realize it’s finn and hayes sheila’s obsessed with, right? I just wouldn’t want kelly around that–
Steffy: Everything’s gonna be fine. Nothing’s gonna happen to her.
Liam: Okay, yeah.
Steffy: Finn and I will see to that.
Hope: Also, just so you know, the kids are always, always welcome to stay with us until you feel totally comfortable and sure that sheila will stay away.
Steffy: I’m not certain we could ever be absolutely sure, you know, given sheila’s track record. If she senses weakness, she’s gonna take advantage. That’s why finn had to put his foot down. Leave no doubt in sheila’s mind that this is the end of the road.
Liam: Hey, sounds like you didn’t mince words.
Steffy: I’m just gonna make sure sheila does not come near me or my family ever again.
Ridge: Well, that’s nothing new, is it? Same, same story over and over again. What do you wanna do for quinn? You want her to be happy, give her the life she deserves. Whatever. What about you? What about your happiness? Are you happy that she’s back?
Eric: Why wouldn’t i be happy, ridge?
Ridge: I don’t know. No, I do know. Because five minutes ago– no, two minutes ago, you were upset that your wife had an affair with somebody else and you wanted her gone and now, she’s back. No explanation. She’s back.
Eric: Ridge, I have explained it. I’ve explained it to you and brooke over and over again.
Ridge: I know you think that, but dad, all you did was tell us that quinn is back. You put that ugly portrait back over the fireplace and there she was at the dinner table. That’s all you did. Dad, I don’t wanna fight with you. We love you. Everybody loves you. I want you to be happy and healthy and I want you to have a partner that is there for you, that doesn’t disappoint you or betray you.
Eric: I don’t wanna go there again with you. I don’t wanna do this.
Ridge: I have questions. You need to help me. I know what happened in your marriage. I know. And I don’t understand what happened after that. And you’re reluctant to talk about it. So this is it? This is what you want? You want that woman in your life for the rest of your life?
Eric: This woman would not be in my life right now if that’s not what I wanted.
Ridge: This woman that you want in your life so badly had an affair with someone. Have you forgotten about their little relationship?
Eric: No, I have not. I’ve not forgotten about the relationship she had with carter. I haven’t and I won’T.
Quinn: I know we agreed that we wouldn’t talk about what happened or what didn’t happen, but eric’s attitude hasn’t changed.
Carter: You talked to him about it?
Quinn: Yes, of course. I talked to him about it last night after you left. I went upstairs, he wasn’t asleep. He wanted to know whether we, you know, did it and I said no. We didn’T. We couldn’T.
Carter: How’d he react?
Quinn: I couldn’t tell whether he was relieved or not. Doesn’t your family deserve the best?
Finn: Okay. Let’s put a moratorium on all things sheila. At least for now. Drop the topic. Today’s supposed to be about our families, right? Having a good day at the beach?
Steffy: Yes. And once hayes wakes up, we’re going to kick everything into high gear.
Hope: All right, sounds like a plan.
Liam: Yeah, for sure. Actually, before that happens, can I just say one thing? I just really admire the way that you guys have been handling this. Obviously, it’s really stressful. Obviously, it’s not the kind of thing you wanna be dealing with the first, what, three weeks of marriage. But what’s obvious is how you guys have come through on the other side of this, right, which is stronger and more in love than ever. And I think what that says is that this thing that you two have with each other is more powerful that any adversity that you’re gonna face and that includes sheila. And sorry, I didn’t wanna make a whole speech. I just wanted to say that.
Finn: I couldn’t have said it better. If it wasn’t for this remarkable woman, this amazing wife and mother. Steffy’s my rock, my family’s rock. She’s fearless and fierce and… I’ve never loved anyone the way I love her.
Ridge: Put that down for a second please. If you haven’t forgotten about quinn and carter, how can you have that woman back in your house? Back in your bed?
Eric: Ridge, ridge… I’ve tried to explain this to you and brooke. Look, it’S… it’s complicated. It’s very complicated. There’s a lot you don’t know. There’s a lot you don’t understand.
Ridge: I know there is. Explain it to me. What is it? Is quinn holding something over you?
Eric: No. No, no, of course not.
Ridge: Dad… I love you so much. If there’s something going on, if you want to open up to anyone, let it be me. Is there something I should know?
Carter: We need to figure this out.
Quinn: It’s all I’ve been thinking about since last night.
Carter: Yeah, me too. For eric to suggest this–
Quinn: Oh, come on. It’s more than suggesting. He wants you and me to be together because he can’T.
Carter: Because he loves you so damn much.
Quinn: This whole thing has me so conflicted and confused.
Carter: Me too.
Quinn: Eric doesn’t want me to live a life without passion and desire. He knows how much that physical connection is important to me. But I told him I would forego all of that just, you know, to be with him, to be his wife because it’s enough. And it is.
Carter: Is it?
Quinn: I don’t know. I don’t know. I mean, I keep telling myself that it is. Carter, I mean, I can be honest with you. What we shared, what eric is giving us permission to do, we can’t possibly do what my husband is asking… can we?
