Finn: I wasn’t expecting to run into her, she just… showed up.

Steffy: Well, sheila has a way of popping up out of nowhere.

Finn: Well, she wasn’t prepared for the questions I was asking.

Steffy: It’s normal to be curious about your birth father.

Finn: It’s been… on my mind a lot lately.

Steffy: Did you get any answers?

Finn: No. Sheila says she doesn’t know who my biological dad is.

Jack: Thank you, sheila, for not telling finn the truth.

Sheila: Look, all I did was buy you more time. I doubt finn is going to give up on this.

Jack: All these years, deceiving him and his mother. Pretending to be his adoptive parent.

Sheila: If finn wants to find out who you are, there’s only so much I can do to keep putting him off. I think this is the day that you’ve been dreading, jack. I don’t think you have any choice but to admit to finn that you are his biological father.

Katie: Hey. Ah, am i catching you at a bad time?

Carter: No, no, I’m just finishing up some work. I got a little behind.

Katie: Ridge said you needed this right away.

Carter: Thank you. You didn’t have to bring these yourself.

Katie: I wanted to.

Eric: [Sighs]


[Door opens]

Quinn: There is my dashing husband.

Eric: Right here.

Quinn: [Giggles]

Eric: Hey.

Quinn: You okay? I feel like I caught you lost in thought.

Eric: Hmm. I was. I was thinking about you and me.

Quinn: I’ve been thinking about us, too, and everything that’s happened.

Eric: It’s a lot, quinn.

Quinn: We lost our way, eric. We need to find our way back.

Eric: Together?

Quinn: Of course I want us to be together. What kind of question is that?

Eric: It’s just, it’s so important for us to keep checking in with one another.

Quinn: Yeah. Now more than ever. I think–I think you and i learned the hard way how crucial communication is in a marriage. We can’t live without it.

Eric: No.

Quinn: And I can’t live without you. Eric, I love you from the depth of my soul. And I’m really sorry for hurting you.

Steffy: Is she telling the truth?

Finn: I don’t know.

Steffy: How could sheila not have an idea? I mean, she didn’t conceive you on her own.

Finn: And honestly, if she can’t narrow it down to a couple of guys, I might just take matters into my own hands. And hopefully, I won’t regret finding out who it is.

Sheila: Jack, you and li have been married since before I… became pregnant with finn. I’m sure your wife wouldn’t be to thrilled to hear about our affair.

Jack: It would be catastrophic to my marriage. And devastating to my relationship with my son.

Sheila: Our son. Finn already knows my story, jack. Maybe it’s time he heard the truth about yours. We see you.

Finn: Something about knowing your roots and where you come from.

Steffy: I would want that, too. We all do. But there’s a chance you– you might never meet him.

Finn: Yeah, and I have to be fine with that. And I already feel so lucky having the parents that I do. It doesn’t matter that we don’t have the same dna. We have everything else that– that matters.

Steffy: Jack and li are wonderful people.

Finn: And what if I don’t even like the guy? What if he turns out to be some jerk? I already have the best dad I could ask for. Jack finnegan is my father in every way that counts.

Jack: I’ve gotta go. Supposed to meet li at the hotel room.

Sheila: Just remember what I said. There’s so much at stake here, jack. I know that it can be scary but take it from me– leading with the truth is gonna be the best decision.

Jack: Ah, I had a chance to come clean 30 years ago. Instead I chose to live an outright lie.

Sheila: Yeah, but maybe unburdening yourself is gonna give you some relief.

Jack: Ah, I just hate the thought of hurting li and finn.

Sheila: The truth is gonna come out. It always does. Wouldn’t it be better for them to hear this from you?

Katie: So, uh, how are things going?

Carter: Better.

Katie: Yeah, I’ve been thinking a lot about walking in on you and quinn the other day while you were talking.

Carter: She and I should not be having those conversations.

Katie: I guess I’m just trying to figure out where things stand, you know. I know she hurt you. She–she made you feel like you’re second best.

Carter: Wasn’t the first time.

Katie: Well, I know what that feels like. And it doesn’t feel good. Not a healthy place to be.

Carter: It’s not. It… really does a number on you.

Katie: You know, I think you and I get each other in many ways.

Carter: Hmm. I was thinking the same exact thing. It’s been really nice getting to know you, katie, on a different level. Being seen and heard by someone like you, it’S… it’s been eye-opening. Just like you’re ready to move on…it’s time for me to move on, too.

Quinn: I realize things… still aren’t the same between us. And maybe they never will be. Or maybe they’ll be even better. We’re never gonna know until we try, right? But… but I realize that the onus is on me.

Eric: No, quinn, we both have room for improvement.

Quinn: Yes. But maybe I’m the problem in this marriage. Look, I’m mad at donna. I think she definitely crossed a line, but… but I think I have to take some of the blame. You have been suffering, emotionally and mentally for months now, thinking that your body has failed you, when…when maybe it’s me. I have to take a very hard look at myself and–and try to understand how you can get excited by donna… and not by your own wife. I think that’S… the key to repairing our marriage and making it whole again. Assuming that’s what you want.

From the very first touch,

Finn: It’s weird. It’s just… well, there’s part of me that absolutely needs to know. But just…give me my birth father’s name. I’m not even sure what I would do with it. Maybe I’d reach out.

Steffy: Or…maybe you’d decide not to. You just want to have the choice.

Finn: Exactly. I mean, it’s my life. It’s my identity. I’d like to have some control over it, take the uncertainty out of the equation. I…feel bad.

Steffy: Why?

Finn: Just the idea of hurting my dad.

Steffy: Aw. Jack would understand. And, on the bright side, no matter who your birth father is, it’s not gonna be as bad as sheila. It’s not gonna be some dark, ugly secret.

Li: Honey, you’re back. Where did you run off to?

Katie: [Laughs] That is so funny. No, I–I–I just can’t imagine you being alone.

Carter: Seriously? Okay, all right, let me paint you a picture, okay? I come to the office, I go home, I work out, I eat dinner, alone. I watch a tv show, alone. Then I go to sleep, alone. Wake up, repeat.

Katie: Oh, my gosh. Wait a second, this– this sounds very familiar. I mean, aside from the working out part, I think that is me.

Carter: So you feel my pain.

Katie: I–I do.

Carter: Hmm.

Katie: A little too much.

Carter: I need to get on with my life.

[Both laugh] You know, it’s been over with quinn for a while now, and I can’t deny the connection we shared, but it was… based on a foundation of betrayal.

Katie: Not the best way to start a romance.

Carter: You’d think I’d know that going in. I have to admit that it was doomed from the start. I was blind then but I can see clearly now, and I’m not putting responsibility on quinn. It was both our faults. But I found myself doing things in that relationship that I could never imagine myself doing.

Katie: Well, you don’t have to tell me. I know how quinn operates. And I know you. I can see that you are a good, upstanding man. And you’re brilliant. And charming.

Quinn: Thank you.

Eric: You’re welcome.

Quinn: You know… when I married you… I knew I was in for a fabulous ride. You far exceeded my expectations. You–you literally transformed my life. And what did I do? I… I took it all for granted.

Eric: Quinn–

Quinn: No, no, no, eric. I messed up the greatest gift of my life. I don’t want to be that woman anymore. I’m yearning for dignity, and stability. It’s what you’ve always represented to me. I-it… it’s what drew me to you in the first place. It’s what you deserve. I want to make you happy again, eric. I want to put a smile back on your face. We do it every night.

Finn: We were the ideal family. I was so privileged to grow up in that house. I never wanted for anything. They loved the hell out of me.

Steffy: And they always will. The three of you have a bond that cannot be broken. And even if you find out who your birth father is, you’ll adjust and so will they. Just know I’m here to support you.

Finn: Thanks. Yeah, my parent seem pretty happy right now. They took a trip up the coast, a romantic one to reconnect.

Steffy: Really?

Finn: Yeah.

Steffy: Oh, that’s so cute.

Finn: I think my– I think my mom’s doing her best to put the whole sheila carter chapter behind her.

Steffy: Huh. Aren’t we all?

Li: You don’t seem yourself. What’s the matter?

Sheila: The truth is gonna come out. It always does. Wouldn’t it be better for them to hear this from you?

Li: Jack? What is it?

Jack: I’ve… I’ve been reflecting on our life together. How fortunate we are. How great these last few days were.

Li: Mm-hmm. It was a lovely trip. We’ll have to do it more often.

Jack: Li, I need to tell you something. And I desperately hope you’ll understand.

Carter: You know what? We’re not second best. And we shouldn’t be, especially you.

Katie: No, especially you. Thank you. Thank you for saying that. I think I really needed to hear that today.

Katie: You are unlike anyone I’ve ever met.

Katie: [Chuckles]

Quinn: I’ll leave if you want me to. But I’d rather stay. Work on our relationship. You’re my priority, eric. No one else. You know that, don’t you? It’s okay. I understand. You don’t have to say anything.

[Piano chord plays]

Eric: It had to be you

[Playing piano]

It had to be you I wandered around and finally found somebody who could make me be true could make me feel blue and even be glad just to be sad thinking of you some others I’ve seen might never be mean or try to be cross or try to be boss but they wouldn’t do nobody else gave me a thrill with all your faults I love you still it had to be you wonderful you it had to be you you remember this?

[Plays tune]

[Hits last note]

Eric: Quinn. You’re my wife. This is where you belong.
