Steffy: I love that you came by, dad.
Ridge: Of course.
Steffy: It’s great. You just miss finn.
Ridge: Yeah, is he at the hospital?
Steffy: Yeah, life of a doctor.
Ridge: And what about the kiddies?
Steffy: Kiddies are sleeping, so you’re just going to have to settle for your daughter.
Ridge: Ah, my very happy daughter from the look of it.
Steffy: Yeah. Marriage to finn is the best. It’s amazing. I mean, except for–
Ridge: Except for sheila.
Steffy: Yeah. Just knowing that she’s out there lurking somewhere.
Ridge: Well, she is not the only uninvited guest that showed up out of nowhere.
Brooke: I know deacon is your father, honey. But after everything he’s done.
Hope: Mom, please. I already know how you feel about deacon.
Liam: It’s how you feel about him. I mean, you were writing to him in secret. You weren’t telling anyone. You didn’t even tell me.
Hope: And I hated keeping that from you all, but again, I just didn’t want you to worry.
Brooke: Well, of course we were worried. He showed up here like he had every right to be here.
Hope: Because I invited him. He had gotten out, and I thought…
Liam: You wanted to see your father.
Hope: I understand that he has baggage. But–
Brooke: You want to believe that he’s changed.
[ Polka music ]
Deacon: Uno, dos, tres.
[ Grunts ] Oh! Give me one of these. Hi, how would you like to go to acapulco for the weekend? What?
Sheila: Seriously? She is so not into you.
Deacon: I just got to get my mojo back, that’s all.
Sheila: Do you really think a jailbird is gonna catch–
Deacon: Shut up! Come on, you’re gonna ruin this for me.
Sheila: I’m not ruining it, you are. You need to keep focused on what’s important.
Deacon: I was just focusing on what was important.
Sheila: Talking about you and me. What we both want. We both want the same thing. Time with our children. You know, if there’s a will, there’s a way. That has always been my mantra. I need to know that you feel that way too.
Steffy: What are you talking about?
Ridge: Well, hope asked brooke and me to come down to the cabin.
Steffy: For dinner?
Ridge: No, no dinner. No dinner. I don’t even know where to start. Look, I get hope has this great ability to forgive people, but how do you do that after everything. How do you… how do you let that go? How do you allow someone like that in your home?
Steffy: Allowing who in her home?
Ridge: Her father.
Ridge: Uh huh. The bad penny’s turned up once again.
Steffy: You’re kidding!
Ridge: No, I’m not. And there’s more.
Hope: Please understand that I know all about deacon’s history, but he is still my dad.
Liam: Of course, he’s your dad, and we know how you feel about second chances, too. But…
Brooke: Deacon has had chance after chance, and every time he’s hurt you and disappointed you.
Liam: Think about our wedding in italy. Like the guy effectively ruined the whole thing.
Hope: Okay, but that was not his idea, it was bill’s idea. He used him–
Brooke: The point is deacon is untrustworthy. He has proven that over and over again. You can’t let him back into your life.
Hope: Mom, please. Please stop. I understand that you have my best interest at heart, both of you. And I love you for it. But I am going into this with my eyes wide open. I have no illusions about my fatheR.
Deacon: Listen, sheila. Whatever kooky schemes you got cooking up–
Sheila: It is not a scheme. It’s a good idea.
Deacon: Call it whatever you want. I want no part of it.
Sheila: You don’t even know what it is.
Deacon: And you know what? I ain’t interested in finding out either. What are you doing?
Sheila: What are you doing? Walking away from the best opportunity you’re ever gonna have to see your daughter and your granddaughter.& That’s what I’m talking about, deacon. Talking about our children and our grandchildren. How we will refuse to be exercised from their lives by the haughty, high-handed forresters and logans. Excuse me, can I get one more shot here? And it’s on me, all right? Come on, you don’t need to rush off, right? It’s not like you have anywhere to go. You’re certainly not gonna go see hope. Brooke probably has the place surrounded with guard dogs by now.
[ Giggling ] You know, all of that could change if you just hear me out.
Deacon: Thank you. Oh. My plaque psoriasis…
Steffy: Thank you so much for fixing that.
Ridge: Anything I can do to help.
Steffy: Still can’t believe it. Hope contacting deacon in prison. Inviting him into her house. Is he still as smug as usual?
Ridge: Well, not according to him. He says he’s a changed person. He’s completely rehabilitated himself because he owed that to hope.
Steffy: Well, hope didn’t completely write him off even though he was behind bars.
Ridge: No. Her letters gave him life.
Steffy: Oh, please! And hope bought it?
Ridge: Fathers and daughters, right? Special bond.
Steffy: Yeah, but deacon? That man is toxic.
Hope: People do change. They can learn from their mistakes.
Brooke: Your father isn’t one of them.
Hope: Well, I’m talking about now. The present. I mean, do you think that maybe incarcerated, locked away by everything and everyone that meant anything to him might have had an impact?
Liam: Hope, we… we realize that as his daughter, of course you’d want that to be true.
Brooke: More than likely, he’s the same old manipulator and you don’t need him in your life, now or ever.
Deacon: You know, you make a very good tequila.
Deacon: And molly, right?
Deacon: So about this boyfriend of yours?
Molly: Big, tough, jealous.
Patron: Excuse me?
Deacon: Okay, but what if I told you–
Molly: Sorry. Duty calls.
Deacon: What the hell’s going on here?
Sheila: You’re out of practice.
Deacon: Out of practice. Watch this. Excuse me. Excuse me? Would you like to go ensenada? Because I know you hate acapulco?
Lady: No, thank you.
Deacon: No, you know what it is? You’re cramping my style, all right? Beat it.
Sheila: Oh no.
Deacon: I mean it. Go.
Sheila: Excuse me. Excuse me? Can I get another drink for my friend?
Deacon: I’m not her friend. I’m not your friend.
Sheila: Well, not yet. I mean, but given how much we have in common, I think that it’s going to be that way one day or–yeah!
Deacon: Well, you’re off your rocker. You know that, right? Just like…
Sheila: Why? Because I want to spend time with my son?
Deacon: Right? Your son. The one that married steffy forrester.
Sheila: Finn. Yes.
Deacon: I’m sorry, finn? As in huckleberry? That’s that’s his name? Oh.
Sheila: It’s short for finnegan, his adoptive parents’ last name.
Deacon: Oh, okay.
Sheila: Now, they were wonderful. They gave him a loving, stable home after I gave finn up shortly after he was born.
Deacon: Well, you sure as hell couldn’t have given him a stable home. That’s for damn sure.
Sheila: Yeah, you’re probably right. I wasn’t in a good place back then. I would not have been a good influence on him. That’s why I stayed away.
Deacon: And you stayed away until you found out that old finny boy was getting hitched to a forrester. Then presto! There you are in the flesh, ready to make it happen.
Sheila: Are you insinuating that I would manipulate a situation?
Deacon: Oh no, no, no, no. I’m not insinuating anything. I’m saying it flat out, you’ve manipulated a situation. It’s like who you are. You know, you’re like the grand poobah of manipulations.
Sheila: Yeah, but it… it really wasn’t like that. No, he’s special. He’s a good man. He’s a doctor. He’s handsome, he’s kind, and he and steffy, they have a beautiful, beautiful baby boy together. My grandson, hayes.
Deacon: Hayes? What’s with these names? Do you want this kid to get bullied? I mean, come on. Wait, wait a second, hayes was… hayes was steffy’s mother’s name before she got…
Sheila: Married. Yeah.
Deacon: And this is– just so I understand this, and this is the one that you pumped a couple of bullets into.
Shiela: Why does everybody have to bring that up? No stop it. Look, I’m not here to talk about taylor. All right? I’m here to talk about my flesh and blood.
Deacon: Right, this is the baby that you gave up for adoption, then became a doctor, went on to marry steffy forrester. So now you’re the grandmother, this kid.
Sheila: I’m not making this up.
Deacon: I mean, you know, I have heard all the sordid stories about, you know, you and how you desperately wanted to become a part of the forrester clan. Son of a– you actually did it. Wow. So, that means that this this pure little innocent baby is half forrester and half you? Oh, wow. I’ll drink to that.
Sheila: And boom, right?
[ Giggling ] Nice work. My hygienist cleans with a round head.
Steffy: When you think about it, hope’s reaction to deacon is very similar to how finn reacted about sheila. I mean, she’s awful, but she’s–
Ridge: It doesn’t change the fact that she’s his birth mother.
Steffy: Yeah, that’s true. I mean, deacon is a loser. He really is. But he is hope’s father, and she can’t quite shake him, even though she should.
Ridge: Same way that finn needs to shake sheila.
Steffy: And he knows he has to do that for our sake, for our family. I just pray hope comes to that conclusion. Deacon is trouble, and he has no place in hope’s life or beth’S. Just like sheila has no place in finn’s or hayes’.
Hope: I hear everything you are both saying.
Brooke: Good. Because deacon will say all the right things, honey. He is a con man.
Hope: Mom, I understand what you are saying, but I’m a grown woman, and this decision wasn’t made impulsively and I’m entitled to want to try to pursue a relationship with my dad.
Brooke: But this isn’t just about you. This is also about your daughter. He wanted to see beth, remember? And thank god she was out with douglas and donna. But what if deacon comes back tomorrow or the next day or the next?
Liam: Exactly. The bottom line is the guy’s not a good influence.
Brooke: And he’s definitely not the kind of person you want to have around beth, ever. You know, he can’t be in her life. You do know that, don’t you?
Deacon: The next round’s on me, ladies.
Sheila: They are so not into you.
Deacon: How can they not be in the me?
Sheila: Why don’t you focus on what’s important?
Deacon: You mean what’s important to you, this whole con thing you got going on?
Sheila: Whoa, whoa, wait a minute, I’m not the con man here, you are. And for the record, I didn’t come into finn’s life to disrupt it.
Deacon: Oh no, no, no. You just happen to show up out of the blue with the most important moment of his life. He’s marrying steffy forrester. Stephanie’s namesake. Your departed arch rival. No, no, no. I’m not buying this. All right? You were probably putting together this poignant little mother-son scheme for months.
Sheila: It wasn’t like that. It was not a manipulation.
Deacon: Whatever it was, this has been fun. But I got better things to do than sit around and listen to you whine about the forresters.
Sheila: Wait a minute, you were the one that was talking about the forresters. Sitting here having a pity party for yourself because they wouldn’t let you see hope. Look, deacon, like it or not, we have something in common. We both want to see our children and we would be. If the forresters weren’t keeping us from seeing them. I’ve lost count of how many asthma attacks I’ve had.
Ridge: Deacon needs to stay away from hope and beth if he cares about them at all. Which, for a minute, I don’T… I don’t think he does. I don’t think he cares about ’em.
Steffy: Sheila doesn’t care about finn, either. If she did, she wouldn’t have revealed to him that she was his birth mother. She knew it was going to create chaos, but that’s what she lives for. Upending lives.
Ridge: Same with this clown. He knew there was going to be fireworks, but it didn’t stop them.
Steffy: That’s why it’s really important for hope and finn to not have any contact with their criminal sick parents. I made it very clear to finn. I’m just praying that liam does the same for hope.
Hope: Mom, I will always protect my little girl and do what’s best for her.
Brooke: Of course you will, honey. Because you’re a wonderful, loving mother. But deacon looks for vulnerabilities in people, and he exploits them. I just want you to be careful.
Liam: That’s all I want. I mean, I’ll admit it, I don’t know everything about your dad because most of it happened before we even met, but, it, it kind of freaked me out that you were secretly corresponding with him.
Brooke: Deacon is dangerous and so is sheila, and they both need to be kept away from their families at all costs.
Deacon: I’m just going to say this once, all right? I don’t want to be a part of whatever it is that you’re suggesting.
Sheila: Why not?
Deacon: Because if I ever want to have a relationship with hope and my granddaughter, I can’t be associating with a sheila-devil like you.
Sheila: A sheila-devil?
Deacon: Truth hurts, sorry.
Sheila: Oh, truth. The truth. Is that what we’re talking about here right now? Why don’t we talk about the true life of a deacon sharpe, huh? Deacon the has-been drunk. Deacon, the ex-con. Deacon, the liar extraordinaire. You know, hanging out with you. It wouldn’t exactly boost my reputation, either.
Deacon: Oh, your reputation. Okay. Listen, next to you, I’m a saint.
Sheila: Okay. Look, let’s just not do this. All right? It’s bad enough that we have the forresters dictating our lives, telling us who we can and can’t see. If you and I start attacking each other, too, I mean, we’re not the problem. Steffy forrester is the problem. My son wants to see me. There’s no way steffy is ever going to let me see finn or hayes.
Deacon: You know, I’m the one who’s getting ganged up on here. Brooke and ridge, liam. You know, they’re triple teaming me. I mean, it’s all sorts of wrong, too, because hope reached out to me first.
Sheila: She reached out to you because she cares about you, deacon. Just like finn cares about me. I really think that if we can reach out to hope and finn and work together on this–
Deacon: Come on, no. We’re not working together, all right? I mean, come on, you’re frigging nuts, lady. We can’t do– look, this has been fun, but I got to go find some action and it’s not here, okay?
Sheila: Whoa. Whoa, whoa. Wait. Come on. Please. We can take down the forresters. I am desperate here. Please, deacon. We can’t do this alone. Together, we can do anything. Anything.
