Eric: Quinn, what’s that?
Eric: We said we were gonna be honest with each other. It was carter, wasn’t it? You should go.
Eric: You should go. I want this for you.
Quinn: See you at home.
Eric: I’ll be waiting.
Ridge: Okay, what was that? What’s going on between you and quinn?
Finn: Paris, what’s wrong?
Paris: There’s something I need to tell you. Something important.
Finn: What is it? What’s– what do you need to tell me?
Ridge: I know. You’ve forgiven quinn. But I don’t trust her.
Eric: Well, I do trust her, and that’s the only thing that matters, isn’t it?
Eric: Ridge, I’m happy with the way things have turned out. The arrangement we have.
Ridge: The arrangement you have? That’s what you call your marriage now? It’s an arrangement?
Eric: You know what I mean?
Ridge: I don’t know what you mean? Dad, you say you’re happy, but I don’t see it. Are you happy?
Eric: Leave it alone, ridge. I want you to respect my decision. And I’d really like you to respect my privacy.

Ridge: Dad, I’m sorry. Believe you, I do believe you. I respect your privacy. If you think I’m prying, I’m not. Just worried about you.
Katie: Hi, gentlemen. Um, what’s going on?
Ridge: That’s what I’m trying to figure out.
Finn: Have I done something to upset you?
Paris: No, not at all.
Finn: Then, what’s going… what’s going on? Paris, what’s wrong?
Paris: It’s just being here with you and steffy. The generosity that you’ve shown me. I’m just feeling a lot of joy and appreciation. Because I’m happy for you two. The relationship that you have. Back together, just the way you should be.
Finn: Okay, yeah. But it seems a little more intense. Like there’s more going on.
Steffy: Is everything all right?
Finn: Yeah, well, paris said she has something she needs to tell me.
Paris: Tell you both. It’s time.
Steffy: Time for what?
Paris: For me to leave. But I am so grateful for you two giving me a place to stay. But I think it’s best for everyone if I move out. My plaque psoriasis…
Steffy: You’re leaving?
Finn: Because you want to or because you feel pressured to? Because I really hope that’s not the case. I mean, we enjoy having you here.
Paris: And I enjoy being here.
Steffy: Then why go?
Paris: You know, it was never supposed to be a permanent thing. And I wanna get out of the way before it feels like I’m taking advantage.
Steffy: We’d never…we’d never feel that way.
Paris: I know, but maybe I would start to feel like that. I adore your kids, and I adore you and finn. That’s why it’s time for me to leave.
Eric: Listen, I appreciate your concern, both of you. I have a good son. I have an even more wonderful next door neighbor. But look, I wouldn’t have taken quinn back if I didn’t want to have a life with her.
Ridge: A life. Your one life. Your one and only life. It doesn’t seem that you’re enjoying it.
Eric: Who says I’m not?
Ridge: Me! Everybody that sees you. You come in here with that face, your body language, just walking around, I know it. Why are you with this woman if she’s not bringing you any joy?
Eric: She does bring me joy!
Ridge: She does not bring you joy! I was here. I saw this weird goodbye thing you guys had. This almost hug, looking at each other. I don’t know what that is. It’s not two people that love each other, it was weird. It was sad. And where were you? What happened to you? The man that likes to go home and makes martinis for his wife and have a drink at the house?
Katie: Okay, ridge, I think you made your point, so let’s just– let’s just ease up a little bit.
Eric: Or a lot.
Katie: Eric is capable of making his own decisions.
Eric: Yes I am. Since before either one of you was born, as it turns out.
Ridge: Okay, yes. But sometimes, lately, you make decisions that cause you harm. So, I’m trying to help you avoid that.
Katie: Maybe the best way to help is to just listen. I mean, even if it’s hard for us to understand, eric is… eric is saying that his relationship with quinn is working for him.
Eric: She’s a wise woman here. Maybe you should listen to her, ridge. I’ve always admired that about you, katie. The voice of reason in the middle of chaos.
Katie: All right, well, let’s not misunderstand. I am concerned about you as well. And I am here for you if you ever want to talk.
Eric: You see the difference here, ridge? “If you ever want to talk” is what she offers instead of being forced into it.
Ridge: All right, all right.
Eric: And speaking of that, how about this evening, katie?
Katie: This evening?
Eric: Mm-hmm. Quinn will be out until pretty late. If you don’t have plans, maybe you’d like to stop by.
Katie: Um, okay, sure. I’d like that.
Eric: Good. All right.
Ridge: You know, they’re expecting you in the cutting room.
Eric: That’s where I’m going.
Ridge: Dad, you gotta understand something.
Eric: Yes, son, I know. I love you too.
Ridge: You heard that, right? Quinn is going out again.
Katie: Yeah, it’s strange.

I may have moderate to
severe rheumatoid arthritis.
Finn: Do you have a new place lined up?
Paris: Working on it. Got a few leads. Don’t worry. I’ll be fine.
Steffy: I’m not worried about you, I’m worried about us.
Paris: No, don’t be. You guys are more than fine. And that’s what makes me happy. Being here, seeing you guys together, I’ve gotten to see first hand how strong you two really are. And then, you know, sheila came into finn’s life and his loyalty never wavered from you. He’s so committed to you, steffy. It’s a beautiful thing. How lucky you two are to have each other.
Steffy: Yes we are. And we were so lucky to have this time with you. Honestly. We’re gonna miss you.
Finn: Yeah, and so will kelly and hayes.
Paris: Well, it’s not like I’ll be a stranger.
Steffy: You are welcome back any time you’d like. The kids will be so thrilled to see you.
Paris: Okay, I’m definitely coming back, then.
Finn: When are you planning on moving?
Paris: Depends on how quickly I find a place. But I’m looking at a few possibilities, closing in on one. So. Oh, I actually have to return a call about that and if it goes well, then I’ll be back to pick up my things.
Steffy: Okay, I guess, good luck. It sucks, but I get it.
Paris: Thank you for everything. You both have been so kind to me and I can’t thank you enough.
Ridge: Well, I’m happy dad has you for a neighbor.
Katie: I’ve actually been spending a lot of time over there lately.
Ridge: You have? With dad and quinn?
Katie: No, no. As you said, quinn has been out a lot.
Ridge: Yeah, and it’s weird, right? There’s something going on, here.
Katie: Well, whatever it is, eric seems okay with it.
Ridge: He does not seem okay with it. Did you see that guy? He seems defeated.
Katie: Yeah, I know what you mean. But he also seems to be actively encouraging it. Ridge, I don’t know what to say. The only thing we can do is hope that he reaches out to us if he needs to.
Ridge: He deserves better. So much better.
Katie: Yeah, I agree. I mean, he’s the kindest man I’ve ever known. What he puts out to the world, he should get back in return.
Ridge: He is kind, he is generous. And there are people who may take advantage of that.
Quinn: I wasn’t gonna come, and then I thought, “I don’t know, maybe we could just talk?” You’re laughing. And then you look at me like that.
Carter: Like what?
Quinn: Like that.
Carter: It’s okay, quinn. It’s safe. We had to stop ourselves the other day, so how about we pick up where we left off? Nope
Steffy: Kinda bums me out. I mean, I do understand why she had to leave.
Finn: Well, yeah. I mean, we can be a lot to handle.
Steffy: We can be a lot to handle? No, you can be a lot.
Finn: Oh, okay.
Steffy: Not me. No. But she is right about something. About the strength we have as a couple. Like, I feel like we’re in a good place now.
Finn: Yeah, sure does. It’s malibu. No better place in the world. Oh, you were talking about us.
Finn: Oh, I see. That too. But, you do have to admit the view of the ocean is pretty amazing. And the, you know, the waves are always–
Steffy: I get what you’re trying to do. I know what you’re trying to do. You still want to go surfing. You wanted to do that before paris dropped the bomb.
Finn: You don’t mind?
Steffy: No, not at all. I mean, I should get back to work anyway. Especially while the kids are asleep.
Finn: You’re the best.
Steffy: You’re the best.
Finn: You’re the best.
Steffy: Don’t forget it.
Finn: Okay, I’m going surfing.
Steffy: Okay, bye.
Finn: Won’t be long!
Steffy: I know. To work. Okay, um, where–okay.
Sheila: Hello, steffy.
Steffy: What! Sheila, what are you doing here? You are not welcomed here. Get out, now!
Katie: You know what I think? I really think that this is about loneliness.
Ridge: Loneliness, really? That’s why he’s staying with quinn?
Katie: Well, he doesn’t seem exactly thrilled about it, right? I mean, I’m sure he’s gotta still be hurting over her affair, but at the same time, he doesn’t want to be alone, so…
Ridge: So, it’s los angeles! There’s hundreds, thousands of women out there.
Katie: Quinn is familiar. You know? They have a routine.
Ridge: And what is that routine? He gets home, she’s not there because she left for the evening. What is that? What kind of marriage is that?
Katie: Please don’t harass him. And listen, I’m going over there tonight, okay? Maybe he’ll open up to me.
Ridge: Or maybe I’ll find out before then.
Ridge: I have someone checking on her. I’ll find out what she’s up to.
Carter: Are you sure?
