Brooke: You’re sure you’re not going to make it home tonight? Ridge, it’s new year’s eve.

Ridge: I know. Weather’s only getting worse but we’ll wait it out. We’ll see what happens here, but I… think it might be a done deal.

Brooke: Okay, well, keep me posted.

[Sighs] I love you.

Ridge: I love you, too.

Sheila: Was that really so wise, brooke? Threatening me?

Brooke: I’m serious, sheila. I’m gonna do everything in my power to keep you away from our family, and ridge will agree with me. And I’m going to make damn sure he knows how crazy you are.

Sheila: Cheers, brooke.

Steffy: Are you sure you’re going to stay up ’til midnight?

Kelly: Yeah.

Steffy: Well, you know what?

Kelly: What?

Steffy: It’s almost time. Yes, it’s almost time.

Finn: Yeah.

Steffy: And that means you–

Finn: The countdown is about to start. Look at that. Okay, so let’s–

Steffy: Get some noise–

Finn: Grab some noisemakers. Right? All right, this one.

Thomas: Uh, steffy…

Steffy: In greenland or somewhere, just go with it.

Taylor: Different time zones. That’s one of your father’s old tricks.

Steffy: Have you spoken to dad today?

Taylor: No. Should I have?

Steffy: Well, I just don’t think an old acquaintance should be forgotten. At least not by dad. Especially you!

Zende: Thank you.

Paris: Thanks. So, um, this has been great. What do you say we get the check and maybe split it down the middle?

Zende: Nah, I brought you here. I’m buying. Plus, we haven’t even had dessert yet. Just look at that sugary goodness, soon to be our future.

Paris: That’s kind of cheesy, right? When couples are so into each other like that in public. Maybe I’ll understand it when I’m their age, but, uh, I can take my own bites, thank you very much.

Zende: Their age?

Paris: Yeah, I mean, we’re– we’re so lucky. We’re young and single and we don’t have stuff tying us down. I don’t know about you, but I would like to appreciate that part of my life for as long as I can.

Zende: You want to appreciate being single?

Paris: Yeah, don’t you? I don’t know, it’s just something about the end of the year that gets me thinking about the future and all the possibilities, and I’m enjoying this ride that we’re on, but we still have so much life to live. And someday that’ll come… marriage and settling down, but not any time soon.

Thomas: Three, two, one..

[Hayes cries]

All: Happy new year!

Steffy: Give me a hug, kelly. Happy new year, baby.

Thomas: In greenland.

Steffy: Just go with it.

Taylor: Oh, they’re so sweet.

Thomas: I know. I know, they’re– they’re done.

[Overlapping chatter]

Kelly: Pretty.

Taylor: Oh, that is a gift from… someone. Sheila.

Thomas: Why?

Kelly: Ow.

[Steffy gasping]

Finn: You okay?

[Kelly cries]

Sheila: My son. I’m finally getting a chance to be with you all because of taylor of all people. And brooke wants to try to keep me away from you? Let her try.

[Brooke gasps]

Brooke: I can’t believe this.

Deacon: Ridge isn’t coming back?

Brooke: Just a stupid storm is grounding all the flights for some reason. Oh! Oh, no.

Deacon: I got it. I got it. Don’t worry about.

Brooke: That was my only bottle. Oh…

Deacon: All right, here we go. Yep, that’s it. Oh, at least it didn’t break! Oh, my god. New year’s eve, all alone.

Deacon: It doesn’t have to be. I could stay if you want. Brooke, I’m alone, too.

Paris: I’m all for marriage, maybe five, 10 years down the line, but I’m young and there’s so much I want to experience. And that’s why we work so well together, because I know you think the same way. We’ve always kept things loose and casual and that feels good.

Zende: Yeah, sure does.

Paris: These are exciting times for the both of us, zende. We both have these incredible careers and we have each other, but we also have our independence. So let’s enjoy this time, enjoy each other, and let’s make this year ahead the best one yet. Yeah.

Steffy: I know. I don’t think we’re going to get our fabrics for a while.

Thomas: Hey. Is kelly okay after her boo-boo?

Taylor: Yes, she is. Finn’s reading her a story.

Thomas: Hmm.

Steffy: Sheila did have a hand in it. So, now that you’ve invited sheila over for christmas eve and she stopped by your office, are you bffs now?

Taylor: Gosh, I– I want her to change. I want her to get better. I– I really do, but I don’t know. I– I think it’s best to keep an eye on her. The kids had a good time.

Thomas: They did.

Steffy: Yeah.

Thomas: That’s true. And I’m glad I got to see that.

Taylor: I wish douglas was here– I’m sorry.

Thomas: Hey. Me too. Me too. But you know what? Douglas is with hope tonight.

Liam: Douglas, aren’t you supposed to be in bed?

Douglas: Where’s mom? Beth woke up, so she’s– she’s singing her back to sleep. Come here. Come here. What’s going on?

Douglas: I can’t find peanut butter.

Liam: Peanut butter, the rabbit?

Douglas: Yeah, I can’t sleep without him.

Liam: Huh? Well, that means we gotta find him.

Brooke: You want to stay? You’ve had too much to drink if you think that’s gonna happen.

Deacon: Oh, I’ve had too much– oh, there you go. Yeah, I’m not the one stumbling around, knocking bottles over.

Brooke: Stumbling? Stumbling? What–

Deacon: Brooke, have you been drinking?

Brooke: My god, deacon. No, non-alcoholic. It says right there. Can you read? You know, I walk by this liquor cabinet every single day and I’m not tempted to have a drink. Although, tonight, I should be allowed.

Deacon: What are you suggesting?

Brooke: Uh, a toast, maybe?

Deacon: Uh-huh.

Brooke: Mm. Vodka.

Deacon: Okay. All right.

Brooke: The real thing.

Deacon: Brooke, this is not a good idea.

Brooke: Oh, stop it. Stop being such a downer.

[Deacon sighs]

Brooke: Ooh! Ooh-hoo-hoo. Wow!

Deacon: Christ– that was good. Okay.

Deacon: All right.

Brooke: Mm. You gonna join me?

[Deacon sighs]

Brooke: Oh, come on, deacon. Come on. Slug one back with me, buddy ole pal. It’s new year’s eve.

Deacon: All right. All right. Okay. All right. Well, if you’re in, I guess I’m in.

Brooke: Okay, gotcha.

Deacon: Oh, boy.

Brooke: There you go. One for you and one for me. Cheers.

[Deacon coughs] Most bladder leak pads were similar.

Paris: Thank you. If you hadn’t have sent that text..

Carter: So, what happened?

Paris: Well, I was able to steer the conversation about how great it is to be single. And as for me, I’m– I’m just not ready for marriage and I tried to be as kind and loving as possible. And eventually he– he got the hint.

Carter: So he never took out the ring?

Paris: No. I just couldn’t let him do it, but I didn’t want him to feel rejected. I don’t know, I just never wanted to hurt zende.

[Notification rings]

Steffy: Dad.

Thomas: Oh.

Steffy: Hey! Happy new year!

Ridge: Hey, steffy. Happy new year.

Steffy: Oh. I’m going to put you on speaker, okay? How was your flight? Are you home?

Ridge: Funny story. I’m not going to make it home tonight.

Thomas: What? Really?

Ridge: We’re grounded, so I’m not going to see brooke for new year’S.

Taylor: Oh, I’m sorry to hear that.

Ridge: Doc? How ya doing? Happy new year. Did you pull out the cards, yet?

Steffy: Cards?

Ridge: Ah, you remember? Your mom would pull out cards to make sure you stay up ’til midnight.

Taylor: I was just about to suggest it. I wish you were here to join us.

Ridge: Well, we’ll do it some other time. I’m happy you’re back. The kids are happy, too.

Taylor: Well, not as happy as I am. Safe travels home, ridge. See ya next year!


Thomas: Good one.

Liam: All right, so it’s definitely not in the bedroom. I don’t think it’s out here, so do me a favor, just try to, like, think really, really hard. Where was the last time you saw him? Grandmas! While– while we were watching the movie! I think.

Liam: So, how about just for tonight, we get another stuffed animal, just to fill in? How’s that?

Douglas: But I want–

Liam: I know, believe me, I know. I get it. I totally get it. But you can do this, man. You can do this. You can go without peanut butter for one night. I have faith in you. I believe in you.

Brooke: Oh!

Deacon: Wait, wait. I was just–

Brooke: Yeah, I can’t–

Deacon: I was thinking how much you– you hated me when you first met me.

Brooke: No, I didn’t– I didn’t hate you. It was the– it was the clothes you wore.

Deacon: What are you talkin’ about?

Brooke: Yeah, you had those really tight leather pants and–

Deacon: Yeah, that was a strong look. Are you kidding me?

Brooke: Oh, wait, wait, wait. Wait, wait, wait. Wait!

Deacon: You didn’t like my leather pants?

Brooke: No, the bell bottoms! Oh, my god. You’d put the bell bottoms on and you– you went, “whoo!”

Deacon: I have never worn bell bottoms in my entire life.

Brooke: You would, like, strut–

Deacon: Oh, stop it. I’ve never walked like that, either. Come on. The hell’s wrong with you.

[Both laughing] Wait, wait, wait. What is– what is this? What are you doing with this? You savin’ this for– wait, check this out.

Brooke: Oh, my–

Deacon: Ready?

Brooke: Okay.

Deacon: Deacon claus.

Brooke: Ah, yeah. Ooh.

Deacon: What do you think? You like it? Huh?

Brooke: Wait, wait. Let me see. Okay, okay. Okay, it’s missing one thing.

Deacon: Ah.

Brooke: Yes, I think– I think we need this.

Deacon: Yes, of course.

Brooke: This will finish the look.

Deacon: And that is the look.

Brooke: Yes, I love it!

Deacon: Ah, you’re pouring another one already, huh?

Brooke: Yes, of course. It’s new year’s eve.

Deacon: Okay, new year’s eve, right.

Brooke: And I haven’t drunk like this with you in a long, long time. And it feels good, right? It’s not like I’m gonna do it again.

Deacon: Fall off the wagon one night, ya get right back on.

Brooke: That’s right. Drink it up.

Deacon: Mm–

[Brooke gags]

Deacon: Boom.

Brooke: Wait.

[Deacon chuckles] That went down hard. Woo! Oh, my gosh.

Deacon: You know, this is exactly what I used to– I used to dream about this, you know, when I was alone in my cell.

Brooke: What? Drinking with me?

Deacon: No, no. I just– I used to dream about being a part of hope’s life.

Brooke: Oh, yeah.

Deacon: And a part of yours. Just spending time with you, you know? Just enjoying ourselves, having fun like this. Reminds me how great we were together.

Carter: I know it wasn’t easy but zende’s better off knowing the truth.

Paris: Yeah?

Carter: Yeah. And paris, there’s nothing wrong with wanting to be single and playing the field a bit. It’s normal.

Paris: You don’t think I made a mistake?

Carter: Being honest? It’s never a mistake.

Paris: Oh! I’m just– I’m just so confused. I mean, I care about zende and I never wanted to hurt him. I mean, he was going to propose to me–

Carter: Yeah, it’s okay. It’S… it’s okay.

Taylor: You know, we don’t have to play rummy, this is just something your father and I used to do.

Finn: Ah, no, it sounds fun.

Steffy: Yeah, fun until you turn into mr. Competitive.

Finn: Oh, what? Who, me?

Steffy: Yeah. You. Don’t deny it.

Taylor: Oh, steffy, I’m so happy to see you in such a loving, wonderful relationship. I’m really grateful to be here, but if I ever become a third wheel–

Steffy: Mom, please.

Finn: No, that’s not possible.

Steffy: And if third-wheeling means helping out with our kids, you are more than welcome.

Taylor: Oh, it brings me so much joy to be here in their lives, and douglas’.

Steffy: And dad’s? Now that you’re back in los angeles, you could be spending more time with him. And if brooke shows her true colors…

Thomas: Then maybe he’ll realize that there’s another option out there. Maybe he’ll realize that there’s a woman he should have been with all along. I’m guessing you’re enjoying yourself right about now. Enjoying that “non”-alcoholic champagne.

[Chuckles] Next year is going to be a bitch, brooke.

Brooke: We were a lot of things, deacon, but great?

Deacon: Come on. You know we were. Look, I’m not talking about the circumstances or the pain. I’m talking about when we were alone. The connection. Don’t you remember the passion, the desire that we had? I– that was the most intense that I ever knew. And I’m guessing it was for you, too.

Brooke: Ooh, well…

[Chuckling awkwardly] Mm. You know… there. I should’ve cut you off a couple of drinks ago.

Deacon: Why? ‘Cause I’m speaking the truth? You have any idea how much I thought about you while I was in prison? About us? About what we shared? About what could happen between us if we just had the chance? And now you’re looking at me like that.

Brooke: Like what?

Deacon: Like you used to. Brooke. I never stopped loving you. Never.
