Carter: Eric can’t honestly want you to be with me.
Quinn: He’s not…thinking about it that, carter. He’s thinking about what he thinks I need. And if he thinks this is the only way to give me a life full of passion and desire, then… then he’s willing to do it.
Carter: But are we?
Ridge: Tell me. Tell me what’s going on with you.
Eric: This is a place of business right here. And that’s my personal life. I think it’s been discussed quite enough in this office.
Ridge: Your personal life? What else would it be, dad? We’re family, I’m your son. I’m concerned about you. Yes, it’s personal, of course it is. So, I’m asking you on a personal level. This reunion with quinn… wasn’t all candlelight and fireworks, was it?
Steffy: Oh! What.
Steffy: What was that for?
Finn: It’s the first time we’ve been alone all day.
Steffy: Yeah. You trying to make me forget about your uh… dad joke competition with liam? Wow.
Finn: Nah, that was fun.
Steffy: Yeah, today was fun.
Finn: It was. I love seeing the kids together.
Steffy: I know. Kelly was so proud, showing off her little brother to– to douglas and beth. So cute.
Finn: Well, I think we all have a lot to be proud of today.
Steffy: Mm-hm. This is what hope and I wanted for so long. Just to be a big, blended family. And it didn’t seem possible. But then I met you. What hope said today, about me never been happier… it’s true, I am. It’s because of you.
Finn: The kids are napping. Amelia’s gone. I’m going to take you to the bedroom.
Steffy: I like the sound of that. Steffy: Oh my gosh, we have company. We have com-pa-ny!
Paris: Sorry. I’m sorry.

Eric: You know, I really wish you wouldn’t be so quick to jump on quinn.
Ridge: It’s not what I’m doing. You must know by now I don’t care what happens to quinn. I care what happens to you. And I’m only telling you what I’m seeing. What I’m seeing doesn’t make sense. You wanted her out of your life for very good reason. And now you want her back. And– and no one knows why. No one can talk to you about it. So, something is going on. Am I wrong?
[ Door opening ]
Brooke: Oh, good, you’re both here. These samples just came in and I–uh… you’re in the middle of something.
Ridge: Yeah. I’m trying to convince this guy that I’m concerned about him.
Brooke: We both are, eric.
Eric: Well, I don’t want to be uh–I don’t want to seem ungrateful or unkind, but I would–
Ridge: Here it goes. No, I know what you’re going to say. “You cannot blame quinn for anything, ever.”
Brooke: It’s hard not to. You say that you want a life with her. You say you want her back, and that you’re happy, but you don’t seem happy, eric. In fact, you seem more troubled since you and quinn have reconciled. Why is that?
Quinn: Obviously eric still thinks there’s a connection between us.
Carter: He’s not wrong. But…he doesn’t understand. Quinn, if we do this, if we give into our feelings… it can get very complicated.
[ Sighing ]
[ Door knocking ]
Wyatt: Mom, are you–
Quinn: Hey, sweetheart.
[ Clearing throat ]
Wyatt: Uh…am i interrupting something here?
Carter: Not at all.
Wyatt: Oh, really? So, I should just ignore the fact that you guys literally jumped away from each other?
Frank is a fan of fast.
He’s a fast talker.
Paris: I should have backed up the second I saw you guys. But I’m just no good at sneaking around.
Finn: No, that’s– that’s a good thing. I–I like that in a house guest.
Steffy: Yeah, me, too.
Paris: You guys don’t get to spend much time together, and here I am, interrupting. I’ll go up to my room. I don’t mean to make things awkward, um, but after everything you’ve been through, it’s really great to see you guys like this.
Steffy: Yeah, I agree.
Paris: So that means everything with sheila worked out? You guys don’t have to worry about her anymore?
Ridge: So, everything is good, right? There are no problems? But then answer this, why are you acting this way?
Eric: I’ve asked you time and time again to stop harping on this, to leave it alone. But you won’T. That’s why I’m acting like this. It’s annoying!
Brooke: Why would you want us to let it go, eric? All we’re doing is expressing our concern.
[ Sighing ]
Brooke: I mean obviously something is wrong. We can see it. Even last night when I talked to you on the phone, I could hear it in your voice.
Ridge: We can see what’s going on, why can’t you? Why can’t you see that we’re here because we love you and we want to support you?
Eric: Quinn and I have been more open to one another recently than we ever have been in our lives together. We’ve been very, very honest with one another.
Ridge: And that’s good. Honesty’s good. You know what else is good? Trust. Companionship.
Brooke: And warmth. And affection.
Ridge: You were talking earlier about challenges that families go through. We’ve had more than most. And when we found our way back to each other, it was magical. It was amazing, we didn’t leave the house for days. We didn’t leave the bedroom and there was things happen that’s– that’S…not important. But I want that for you, dad. And I gotta tell you, this… little reunion with quinn doesn’t seem as joyous to me.
Brooke: You probably wanted things to go back the way they were. But maybe that’s just not possible. And there’s no shame in that. Eric, you’re a man who values honesty. You value integrity. And maybe you just don’t feel that same way now after quinn betrayed you. You know, maybe there’s no love, there’s no passion. It’s gone.
Wyatt: You know, this isn’t the first time I’ve walked in on the two of you.
Quinn: At the office? Where we both work.
Wyatt: It didn’t look like you were exactly crunching numbers here, mom–
Carter: Wyatt, there is nothing going on. If you have to know, we were talking about eric. Your mom’s one hundred percent focused on him, doing whatever it takes to make their marriage last.
Wyatt: Okay, good. I mean you can understand why there’s questions, right? Considering everything that–
Quinn: The only question I’m asking myself is how I can be the best wife to my husband. Look, eric has been very generous with me. He’s willing to give me whatever it takes to make me feel appreciated and– and desired. And– and now I have to make sure that I’m– I’m giving eric everything he needs from me.
If you have postmenopausal
Paris: Um, um–I– I brought up a bad subject.
Steffy: No, no, no, no, it’s–it’s alright. Finn made it clear to sheila that she’s no longer welcome& in his life or hayes’.
Paris: Well, did she accept that? Did she leave?
Finn: We don’t know where she is.
Steffy: We have to keep an eye out. You too, paris. If you hear or see anything, we need to know immediately.
Paris: Absolutely. Uh… I’m–I’m sorry I even brought it up. I know it’s a heavy subject.
Steffy: It’s really important that sheila stays out of our lives. For good this time.
Eric: It’s pretty easy to judge from the outside looking in.
Brooke: Eric, we’re not judging you!
Eric: Yes, you are, brooke. Yes, you are!
Brooke: Please, you don’t have to hide anything from us. Admitting that you made a mistake can be hard. And it can feel like a failure. But it’s not. It’s strong and it’s courageous. But that’s who you are, eric. You’re always trying to do the right thing and putting other people first. But it’s not worth it. It’s not worth sacrificing your own well-being just to honor a commitment.
Eric: This is my marriage. What goes on in my marriage is my business. It’s not yours. Quinn and I know what we’re doing. We’re going to take care of this ourselves. I want this to be the end of it. Excuse me.
[ Door opening and closing ]
Wyatt: Look, I don’t mean to make you defensive.
Carter: You’re concerned about your mom.
Wyatt: I just I know how much my mother loves eric and how great they are together.
Quinn: Okay, I’ve made so many mistakes with eric and I don’t want to make another one, okay? Eric and I are–are… are trying to create a marriage that works for both of us.
Wyatt: Good. I just don’t want you to take that for granted.
Quinn: Believe me, I don’T.
Wyatt: Okay. I’m just saying that it was miraculous… the way he took you back after everything you did to him, giving you another chance. Like, that– that is a very special kind of love.
Quinn: I know, wyatt.
Carter: It’s not if you know eric. The way he reacts to challenges. His first thought is always everyone else. He wants things to be better.
Quinn: Eric is a remarkable man. A man who thinks that a life with me is… worth every sacrifice. He’s willing to do… whatever he thinks I need to feel happy and fulfilled.
Wyatt: And you’re going to give that back to him though, right? I’m just saying. I don’t want you to miss out on this, mom. Whatever eric needs, whatever he asks you to do– just do it. (Susan n) leonard was afraid
Eric: Having a little trouble with this one?
Quinn: Ah, just uh… just a bit distracted. I’ve a lot on my mind.
Eric: I understand.
Quinn: I don’t really think you do. You think you know what I want. But you don’T.
Eric: Remember the day we got married?
[ Scoffing ]
Quinn: How can I forget?
Eric: It was just you and me. You and me and the minister.
Quinn: Yeah, yeah. ‘Cause your family protested and they refused to show up.
Eric: Yeah. They were sure I would call it off. They had no idea how much… I loved you. They had no idea how far I would go to give you what you want. I promised that I would– that I would give you happiness and joy and– and fulfilment in your life. I could still do that. Here.
Quinn: What’s this?
Eric: Sensitive material. It’s–it’s for carter.
Quinn: Carter isn’t here, he went home for the day.
Eric: I know. Take it to him. I’ll see you at home.
[ Sighing ]
Ridge: Dad knows what he wants.
Brooke: Yeah. Maybe I shouldn’t have said anything. I made him feel like he had to defend quinn.
Ridge: I’m sure he felt that way from the moment he met her.
Brooke: I just don’t get it. Eric is so… he’s amazing. He’s generous and thoughtful and giving and…quinn is just the opposite.
Ridge: You’re right, he is thoughtful. So, let’s hope he thought this through.
Quinn: Is that your way of telling me not to worry?
Ridge: Only if you can tell me the same thing.
Brooke: Well, your father is an amazing man. His ability to love is… extraordinary. He’s fearless and boundless. Quinn doesn’t deserve him. No man has ever given her what eric has.
Eric: Look, I told you. My sex life is over. Yours doesn’t have to be.
[ Sighing ]
Quinn: I love you.
Carter: I love you, too.
