Thomas: Were you afraid to tell me the truth?
Douglas: No, I’m glad I told you the truth.
Thomas: Me too. Me too. Okay, so you’re absolutely positive?
Douglas: Yes. Grandma was kissing santa claus except it wasn’t santa, it was mommy’s dad.
Thomas: Brooke was kissing deacon?
[ Thomas sighing ]
Brooke: That night will haunt me for the rest of my life. What button was pushed to make me act so recklessly? Kissing deacon of all people. Drinking with him, waking up with him. What possessed me?
Deacon: Sheila, don’t you have somewhere else that you need to be?
Sheila: Nope. I’m good right here. I’m enjoying your scintillating company.
Deacon: Okay, look, this isn’t social hour here, all right? I’m working.
Sheila: Yeah, clearly you are. You’ve been working overtime. Getting brooke to have drinks with you on new year’s eve? That is quite impressive.
Deacon: You don’t know what you’re talking about.
Sheila: Well then, why don’t you enlighten me? Are drinks the only thing that you shared with brooke?
Sheila: Come on, deacon. If you did more than raise a couple of glasses with brooke, you’ve got to be dying to brag about that. And I’m right here, captive audience.
Deacon: Sheila, if anything else happened between me and brooke, you’d be the last person to know.
Sheila: That hurts. You’re saying that to your only friend?
Deacon: Oh, give me a break. You would sell me out 100 ways to sunday if you thought it would ruin brooke’s life.
Deacon: Ridge. You’ve got to get out of here now.
[ Sheila gasping ]
Sheila: Maybe he found out you spent a tipsy new year’s with this wife.
Hope: You’ve been trying so hard to figure out what made you drink that night. But maybe you’re trying too hard.
Liam: Hope’s got a poinT. Maybe it won’t come to you until after you stop thinking about it.
Brooke: It’s just driving me crazy. It doesn’t make sense.
Liam: Well, not everything does. Sometimes you just have to keep living, even if we don’t get all the answers we want.
Brooke: Thank you for going to deacon. I hope he keeps his word.
Hope: Don’t worry about dad. He promised me that he would not tell anyone about what happened between the two of you.
Thomas: Okay, so you’re 100% sure that you saw grandma kissing deacon?
Douglas: At first, I thought it was santa because he was wearing a santa hat. But when you told me to think really hard about what I saw, I remembered more. It wasn’t santa. It was mommy’s dad. It was deacon.

Carter: We are playing with fire.
Paris: I know. But at least we remembered to close the door.
Carter: Yeah? But I bet it’s not locked and if it were, that would be suspicious. Paris this is… dangerous. Giving into this chemistry between us here at work or anywhere else for that matter.
Paris: I know. But… when I’m close to you…
Carter: We have to have more control.
Paris: I know. Anyone could have walked in. Zende, eric, ridge. Not to mention your mom who clearly wants you to be with zende.
Paris: Yeah, you’re right. It’s–it’s too risky. But I can’t stop thinking about you, wanting to kiss you, be in your arms…
Carter: I want that too.
Sheila: So what do you think the odds are that ridge is here to pick up takeout? No, you know? I’d have to think that he found out about your happy hour with brooke and he’s here to smash your face.
Deacon: Go out the back now before he sees you. Go!
Sheila: You never let me have any fun. Okay, I’ll go.
Ridge: Wow! Could you be any more predictable?
Deacon: Am I supposed to know what that means?
Ridge: Out of all the nice places in L.A., This is where you hang out, right here in a bar.
Brooke: Deacon promised to keep the secret?
Liam: Hopefully, we can trust him this time.
Hope: We can.
>. Brooke: You’re so sure about that?
Hope: I am. And for two reasons: First, that deacon made that promise to me, his daughter. And if he were to go back on that promise it would ruin the relationship that we’ve been building. You know, dad’s worked really hard to earn back my trust. And I don’t think he would betray that.
Brooke: I want to believe that.
Liam: You said two reasons, though. What’s–what’s the other one?
Hope: Mom. Dad doesn’t want you to be in any pain. He doesn’t want to hurt you. He just wants to make you happy. He loves you.
Liam: Well, I’d buy that. I mean, why would– why would deacon purposely alienate the woman he claims to love?
Brooke: I pray you’re right.
Hope: It will be okay, mom. Dad won’t talk.
Brooke: I hope douglas won’t either.
Douglas: So later, I realized I forgot my stuffed bunny. I wanted to go get it but liam said to wait ’til morning.
Thomas: But you went anyway?
Douglas: But not to be bad. I couldn’t fall asleep.
Thomas: You know it’s not okay to disobey liam, right?
Douglas: I know. I’m sorry. It won’t happen again.
Thomas: Okay, so then you went up to the main house…
Douglas: And when I got to the window, that’s when I saw them: Grandma kissing santa.
Thomas: Only you’re saying that santa was actually deacon.
[ Thomas sighing ]
Thomas: Are you sure?
Steffy: Kelly’s watching her favorite movie again. What’s going on? Yo you ready?
Carter: You’re with zende.
Paris: Yes, I am dating zende, but we are not exclusive. And he agrees. He even went out with that gorgeous model.
Carter: But zende’s still in love with you. And I don’t want to be that guy that moves in on his friend’s girl. That’s not me or… at least it wasn’t until I had an affair with eric’s wife. He was so hurt and betrayed, paris. I don’t want to do that to zende.
Paris: The last thing I want to do is cause zende pain. But the way you make me feel…
Carter: Paris, I could just…lose my self in you, say the hell with everybody else, but I’m trying to do better. And think about what we both stand to lose. You have a bright future. You don’t want to mess that up getting on the forrester’s bad side. Not to mention your mom has made it super clear she’s team zende.
Paris: I know, I know. We have to be smart. But this connection between us…
Carter: It has to stay between us.
Paris: Look at you. Making me lose track of time. I have a meeting with katie.
Carter: Grace, hey. You just missed paris.
Grace: It’s you I want to talk to.
Deacon: Let’s not pretend this is something it’s not. You know I work here. Which means that I mop floors, I clean the toilets, all for the privilege of living in a broom closet. You know why I do that, ridge? I do that so I can be close to hope. Privilege. That’s– that’s something you know all about, isn’t it? Bet you’ve never done a hard day’s work in your life.
Ridge: Well, that’s not very nice, is it? But you know what? You got a point. Today was an easy day. You know why? ‘Cause I’m gotta go find you and it was easy because I know exactly where you’re going to be. You’re going to be where you belong. In the bar.
Deacon: So, we’re– we’re really–
Ridge: No, hang on a second. You know where you don’t belong? My house. Around hope, around the kids. And especially not around brooke.
Deacon: So we are going to do this again? Okay, great. I thought hope made it abundantly clear that she wants her father in her life. That’s me. Sorry. Nothing you can do about it. And the kids. Well, that’s a package deal. They come with it. As far as brooke. I– I have no idea where you’re going with that.
Ridge: Well, I don’t trust you. Because I know you. And I know you’re working an angle.
Deacon: Well, you’re right about that. You know, I want to be a caring and present father and grandfather. You know, nobody knows more than me what I need to make up for. And you know what? You got me. That’s all I’m trying to do. That’s my angle.
Ridge: I tried to talk to hope. I told her that she shouldn’t have faith in you, but alas, she made her choice.
Deacon: Glad you acknowledge that.
Ridge: You know what it is? My concern is you being around brooke.
Deacon: We share a child together. Our paths are going to cross. Not much I can do about that.
Ridge: Yeah, but you know what I’m saying. I mean, you’re a curse. You’re a bad guy. And bad things happen to brooke when you’re around. So do me a favor. Stay away from my wife.
Hope: I understand that you’re concerned about douglas but you really don’t have to be.
Brooke: That sweet little boy is sitting on information that could end my marriage.
Liam: Yeah, but again. Douglas thinks he saw you kissing santa, not deacon.
Hope: Exactly. Your secret is safe, mom.
Steffy: Is everything all right, you two?
Thomas: Thank you for being open and honest. I know you struggled with it, but it’s always good to be truthful. Okay? So I’m proud of you.
Douglas: Thanks, daddy.
Thomas: Can I get a hug? Yeah! Ooh, that’s a good one! I love you, pal.
Douglas: Love you, too.
Thomas: Uh, do you want to go watch the end of kelly’s movie with her?
Douglas: Later, aunt steffy.
Steffy: Later, kiddo. What’s going on?
Thomas: You’re not going to believe what douglas just told me.
Everyone remembers the
moment they heard,
Carter: Something in particular on your mind?
Grace: Always. When you have two daughters who are young women out in the world, you never stop thinking about them. Wanting them to be living their best lives.
Carter: I can understand that.
Grace: That’s why I was so delighted to come to L.A. And see paris doing so well. She’s got a thriving career. Good friends. A relationship with zende that’s sweet and pure. I couldn’t be more pleased.
Carter: Paris is definitely claiming a place here for herself.
Grace: Mm… I see an amazing future for my baby girl. And zende loves paris. And men like him don’t come along every day.
Carter: Yeah. Yeah, zende is a great guy.
Grace: You think so too?
Carter: Yeah, I know so.
Grace: I’m glad we are in agreement. This is going much better than I had anticipated.
Carter: I’m sorry?
Grace: You seem to want the best for paris.
Carter: Yeah, absolutely. She’s a wonderful person. She deserves all the great things in life.
Grace: I agree. And that’s zende. Not you.
Deacon: Could you take these? Thanks. You really ought to try conserving energy for something constructive. Maybe switch to decaf. Ridge, you’re getting all worked up over nothing.
Ridge: I’m not worked up at all. I just don’t like you being here.
Deacon: Well, it’s still a free country, which means I can live wherever I want. And I choose to be here in L.A. Near my daughter.
Ridge: Your daughter, yes. Hope. It’s a good cover, really, when you think about it because all she wants is to have a relationship with her dad. And now you’re making it sound like you want to have one with her. Well, what’s going to happen? I mean, what’s going to happen when she gets hurt? What is she then? Just collateral damage? Because you are obsessed with a woman who wants to have nothing to do with you?
Deacon: Do you hear yourself because you’re the one that sounds obsessed. You got this idea that nothing or no one matters to me except for brooke. Let me make this simple for you. Hope is my whole world. Having a relationship in her life, that is the thing that means the most to me.
Ridge: We both know that the thing that means the most to you is you. But I know there’s something else. I don’t know what it is, but there is something else.
Deacon: Well, then you obviously know something that I don’T.
Ridge: I do. I know that you’re playing out of your league. You always have. I mean, brooke is not going to revisit the biggest mistake of her life. So it’s nothing to do with you.
Deacon: You sure about that?
Sheila: Damn! You’re good. You’re good, you pulled it off! You got brooke drinking again. And this is just the first step to her world crashing down around her pretty, little head. Karma really is a bitch, brooke. Just like you.
Brooke: I just want to believe that douglas won’t go around telling anybody else that he saw me kissing santa.
Liam: Well, yeah, but you– I mean, you said you talked to him, right? And that he’s going to… leave it alone?
Brooke: IsoI certnly don’t want him to say anything. If taylor and steffy and thomas find out, that will be the end of ridge and me.
Steffy: What am I not going to believe? And why did douglas look so upset?
Thomas: I’m not even that certain yet.
Thomas: Douglas is an honest kid, though. Like, he– that’s why this was such a struggle for him. He wants to tell the truth.
Steffy: Tell you what?
Thomas: Okay. You know how douglas has been saying he saw grandma kissing santa?
Steffy: Yeah. So? It’s a christmas song. Except it’s mommy, not grandma.
Thomas: It’s not just a song and it was grandma, not mommy.
Steffy: What are you talking about?
Thomas: It was brooke. Steff.
Steffy: What was brooke?
Thomas: Douglas saw brooke kissing santa claus.
Steffy: Okay, so maybe she was kissing dad.
Thomas: Yeah. Not only was it not dad, it wasn’t on christmas eve, either. It was on new year’s eve.
Steffy: That doesn’t make sense because dad was out of town.
Thomas: Now you’re getting it.
Steffy: No, I’m not. If it wasn’t dad, then who was brooke kissing? Thomas, tell me.
Thomas: Deacon. Brooke was kissing deacon.
Steffy: Brooke and deacon?
