Ridge: You saw grandma kissing who?
Ridge: Did grandma also get run over by one of the reindeer?
Steffy: No, that’s the other song.
Douglas: I’m not talking about the song. I really saw them, grandma and santa were kissing.
Brooke: I can’T. I can’t let ridge find out that I was kissing deacon on new year’s eve.
Hope: Well, it was one kiss!
Brooke: Honey, a kiss is a betrayal. I betrayed everything that I care about, that I believe in. My family, my marriage to ridge– my sobriety. And with a man that ridge despises more than anything.
Hope: Mom, stop, please, I don’t want you panicking.
Brooke: And douglas saw it, honey. Douglas saw me kissing deacon. I was drunk, and deacon was wearing that ridiculous hat.
Liam: Okay, but brooke, the ridiculous hat is all douglas saw. He thought you were kissing santa claus. That’s all he can tell them.
Brooke: And that’s all that it will take for anybody to figure it out.
Grace: I’m concerned, sweetheart.
Paris: About my relationship with zende?
Grace: I thought you and zende were fond of each other.
Paris: We are. Zende is an amazing guy. I, I care about him a lot.
Grace: Which makes what I just learned even more disturbing.
Carter: Hey… katie.
Katie: Hi. You look like you were expecting someone else.
Katie: I was thinking that we could go over the latest marketing numbers.
Carter: You didn’t have to bring them to me.
Katie: Well, you’ve been kind of hard to catch around the office these days. Been a bit elusive.
Carter: I’m not trying to be.
Katie: Well, then you won’t mind if I ask what you’ve been up to? Aha! And there it is.
Katie: That guarded look that you get on your face every time you see me in the hall. What’s going on? Is there anything you want to share with me?
Paris: Mom, I don’t think there’s any reason that you should be disturbed.
Grace: You acting like things are fine between you and zende.
Paris: Because they are.
Grace: I ran into zende earlier. He was leaving the office going out on a date with the model.
Paris: Right. Yeah. Drinks with sequoia.
Grace: So you knew about that? Paris, what is going on with you?
Brooke: Douglas may not understand what he saw, but he could still tell ridge about it.
Hope: But nobody’s going to understand what he’s talking about.
Liam: I mean, I didn’T.
Brooke: I’m sure you were curious, you were asking questions. And douglas is there right now, and so is ridge. So what if he says something? It’s not gonna be hard for people to figure it out.
Ridge: It sounds like I need to take a trip up to the north pole and talk to santa, because I don’t want your grandma kissing anyone but me.
Douglas: Maybe she was just thanking him for all the presents.
Thomas: It’s all right, bud. Hey, it’s just a song. It’s technically mommy–
Douglas: I’m not talking about the song. I’m talking about grandma.
Ridge: What are you saying?
Douglas: I’m saying what I saw.
Ridge: What you saw in your mind? In your imagination? Because I’m confused now. I thought you were talking about the song, but is it… is it something real? Why don’t you tell us exactly what you saw? Hey! It’s me! Your dry skin! -Katie: You’re not going to tell me anything, are you?
Carter: What do you want to know?
Katie: I just want to know that my friend is okay.
Carter: I appreciate that, and actually, I was wondering the same thing about you. You mentioned bill recently.
Katie: Yeah, uh, he’s been working overtime to win me back.
Carter: Is he getting anywhere?
Katie: Time will tell. How have you been spending your time?
Carter: I knew you were going to find a way to circle back to me.
Katie: Yeah, see? I’m good like that. Seriously, you can– you can talk to me about anything. It’s just you, you’ve kind of disappeared. And don’t tell me that you’re busy, because everyone’s busy. I’m busy too, but we still can check in with each other.
Carter: I’m not avoiding you.
Katie: But you are avoiding something. I can tell that something’s on your mind. Or should I say someone?
Paris: Mom, zende and I have a modern relationship.
Grace: How can you call it a relationship when you both free to see other people?
Paris: We’re keeping it loose. We’re not putting pressure on ourselves or each other.
Grace: Okay, you said it was your idea, but zenda is the one going out on a date with someone else.
Paris: Because I told him I wasn’t ready to get serious.
Grace: Is he trying to make you jealous?
Paris: No. Zende isn’t like that. He doesn’t play games. He’s been honest with me about his feelings since the beginning. I just– I don’t know, I didn’t want to lead him on. I didn’t want him to think that I was ready for more. But we’re having a great time, and he’s an amazing guy.
Grace: So you really don’t mind him going out with this model?
Paris: I was a bit surprised at first, but I’m not against it. It wouldn’t be fair if I was.
Grace: Not fair to whom?
Paris: I can’t tell zende I want to be free and then get upset with him when he listens to me.
Grace: When did you have this conversation? Because the last time we talked, you made it sound like everything was fine between you two.
Paris: They were. Zende was the one who…
Grace: What did zende do? What– what is it, honey?
Paris: Okay… zende was going to propose.
Brooke: Oh, god! Douglas won’t realise what he’s saying!
Hope: Mom, he might not mention the kiss at all. We don’t know.
Liam: Eh, I don’t know. He seemed kind of excited to tell me about it.
Brooke: Okay, okay. You have to call thomas and you have to tell him to bring douglas home as soon as possible, before it’s too late.
Ridge: So you saw grandma kissing santa claus?
Douglas: Through the window. He had the red hat and everything.
Ridge: That is one lucky santa.
Thomas: It’s hope. Hey.
Hope: Hey. Um, so I got your text. You took douglas over to your sister’s?
Thomas: Yeah. I’m here with my dad and steff now.
Hope: Oh, okay. So taylor isn’t there. It’s just you and steffy and ridge?
Thomas: Yeah. No, she got hung up at the office. Bad timing.
Hope: Actually, that’s– that’s why I’m calling. I had some bad timing myself. Can you bring douglas back?
Thomas: Back to the cabin?
Hope: Yeah. Uh, right now, if possible?
Hope: Hope, is everything okay?
Hope: Oh yeah, everything’s, uh, fine. It’s just something came up, and I know you two were looking forward to it, and I swear we can reschedule when, you know, things are a little less chaotic.
Thomas: Yeah, okay. All right. Yeah, I’ll bring him back now.
Hope: Oh, amazing. Thank you. Thank you so much, thomas.
Steffy: Hope is asking to bring douglas back to the house?
Ridge: Something wrong?
Thomas: Some kind of conflict. We better go.
Brooke: So what did thomas say?
Hope: He’ll be here sooN.
Brooke: Well, did douglas mention the kiss? Did he tell them what he saw? Ridge can’t find out about my night with deacon.
Your heart is at the heart
of everything you do.
Katie: If I’m being nosy, you can just tell me to back off.
Carter: No, no, I don’t blame you for having questions.
Katie: We talked a lot and then I just… stopped.
Katie: Well, it’s just that every time I’ve been around you, you seem a little distracted.
Carter: It’s because I am. And before you ask about what, you’re right. It’s about who.
Katie: Mmm! Tell me more.
Carter: I can’T.
Katie: Oh, come on. Why?
Carter: No, I can’T. There’s no point. It probably won’t go anywhere.
Katie: You wouldn’t be thinking about it this much if you didn’t want it to go somewhere.
Carter: And I can’t stop.
Katie: And that’s a problem?
Carter: I have to be careful. After what happened with quinn, I can’t go back there again.
Katie: Is this person a married person?
Carter: Oh, no, no, no. Any woman with a wedding band is strictly off my radar.
Katie: Okay… but she’s not 100% available?
Carter: It’s complicated.
Katie: Is there any way of simplifying things?
Carter: I don’t know where we stand. And to be honest, I’m not sure she does either.
Grace: Zende proposed? Honey, that’s wonderful. Isn’t it? I know how much you care about him.
Paris: Mom, I said he was going to propose.
Grace: He didn’t go through with it.
Paris: I was able to stop him before he could.
Grace: Stop him? Why would you do that?
Paris: Because it would have hurt too much to turn him down.
Grace: I don’t understand this at all. Zende seems like a fine young man. You’ve been raving about him since you met. He’s smart, successful. You like his family. They like you. You’re always telling me about how thoughtful and caring he is, and that he treats you like a queen.
Paris: Yeah, he does. That is all true.
Grace: Okay, then what am I missing? What is wrong, sweetheart?
Paris: It’s like I said, mom, I just, I want my freedom. There’s so many exciting things that are happening in my life and work. I’m meeting all of these incredible people. I’m just, I don’t think I’m ready for a lifelong commitment right now.
Steffy: That was so weird! Douglas just got here, and hope asked thomas to bring him home?
Ridge: I wonder what’s going on?
Hope: Mom, I’m going to need you to calm down just a little bit, because douglas is going to be home any minute now and…
Brooke: Okay, okay. I mean, he wasn’t there very long. He probably didn’t say anything, right? I, I just can’t believe that he actually saw me kissing deacon. And I know he just saw the santa hat. Thank god he didn’t see deacon’s face.
Hope: But mom, it was– it was a new year’s eve kiss.
Brooke: Honey, he also spent the night.
Hope: But you said nothing happened.
Brooke: I know nothing did happen, but I still don’t understand how any of this could happen. I love my husband. I am committed to my marriage, and my sobriety. And why would I risk it for one night? Why? And then to, to realize that my precious grandson actually saw everything that happened.
Hope: Mom– mom, he is not going to understand what he saw.
Liam: That’s exactly right. But here’s the thing, brooke, you can’t let douglas see you upset like this. The kid’s perceptive.
Hope: And he is sensitive, and you can’t make him feel like he did something wrong when he didn’T.
Brooke: No, he didn’T. It was me.
Douglas: Hi, grandma!
Brooke: Hi, honey.
Thomas: Got him back as soon as I could.
Hope: Oh, thank you.
Thomas: Is everything all right?
Hope: Oh yeah. Yeah. Just a family thing.
Thomas: Anything I can do?
Liam: No, no. We’re just– we’re glad that you got him back.
Hope: Yeah. And I’ll be sure to reschedule something for the two of you really, really soon.
Thomas: Okay, well, we’ll make it really special then, right?
Thomas: Soon. Come on. I love you, man.
Douglas: Love you, too.
Liam: See ya.
Hope: Thank you again.
Hope: Why did I have to come home, mommy?
Hope: Oh, well, you know, your grandma wanted to have a little chat with you.
Douglas: About what I saw at your house on new year’s eve? If you have advanced non-small cell lung cancer,
Ridge: Not the best time to be on the pch, is it?
Steffy: No, but he needs to get here.
Ridge: Think he’s coming.
Ridge: How’d it go?
Thomas: Douglas got home safe and sound.
Thomas: Thanks for coming back.
Thomas: There’s no reason to cut my visit short. I want to see my mom–
Ridge: So is there something wrong? What, what happened?
Steffy: Yeah, did hope say what was going on?
Ridge: You just had to drive your kid all the way to beverly hills, and there was no problem with anything?
Thomas: She said it was a family thing.
Steffy: Douglas was having a family thing here with us.
Thomas: Okay, look, I’ll call her. We’re going to set something up in the future.
Steffy: Yeah, hope shouldn’t just change the plan just because she feels like it.
Thomas: I don’t think that’s what it was. There’s definitely something going on. But she didn’t explain it, and I didn’t ask.
Ridge: Well, maybe you should have asked. It’s your son. You got to see what’s going on.
Thomas: Look, hope respects my role in his life, and I respect hers. And she knows how much douglas loves spending time with us. She wouldn’t have asked me to bring him back if it wasn’t really important.
Hope: The most important thing we want you to know, douglas, is that no one is upset with you, and we love you very, very much.
Liam: That’s right, and we believe you. That’s the other big thing.
Brooke: And there’s no reason to feel funny talking to us about any of this.
Douglas: It was kinda funny.
Brooke: Was it?
Douglas: Seeing you and santa kissing? Yeah.
Brooke: Did you tell anybody else how funny that was?
Douglas: Yeah, I told dad, and he thought I was talking about the song, too.
Hope: Oh, so you told your dad?
Douglas: And grandpa, and aunt steffy.
Hope: Oh, wow. Okay, so you told them what you saw?
Douglas: Was I not supposed to?
Liam: No, no, no. Just it’s, you know, it sounds like they thought you were talking about the song and got the lyrics wrong.
Douglas: But I told them I didn’T. I really saw grandma kissing santa.
Brooke: What did they say?
Douglas: Grandpa said that’s one lucky santa claus.
[Liam and hope laugh]
Liam: It’s sounds like they thought it was funny, too. That, that’s lucky.
Brooke: Is that all that they said? You didn’t tell them that this happened on new year’s eve, right?
Douglas: No, I forgot.
Brooke: Oh, that’s okay. Um… do you mind if I talk to douglas alone?
Liam: Uh… yeah. Yes, yes. Okay, you guys. Yeah.
Hope: Be right back.
Brooke: Come here, douglas. Um… we had a great time on christmas, didn’t we? It’s always so much fun spending time with family and eating yummy foods. Opening christmas presents by the christmas tree. But that’s all in the past, and now we get to look forward to new celebrations in the future, right? And we get to forget all about grandma kissing anybody.
Douglas: Meaning santa.
Brooke: Yeah. You told everybody anyway, so… uh… so, christmas is over and all the decorations are put away nicely in the boxes, and…
Douglas: It was new year’s eve.
Brooke: Right. Well. Christmas and new year’s is, is over. And you know what we say? We say… the past is in the past, right? And now we get to look forward to the future! And all of the wonderful, exciting new adventures that we can have together. Okay, douglas?
Douglas: Okay, grandma.
Brooke: Oh! Thank you. All is forgotten.
