Steffy: You haven’t changed, sheila.
Sheila: Brooke is the one that hasn’t changed. Boozing it up with deacon, cheating on your father the first opportunity she had.
Steffy: Because of you. This chance at a relationship with finn, with hayes, it’s over. It is never gonna happen now that I have proof that you’re still the same manipulative sociopath you have always been. Targeting brooke like that?
Sheila: You don’t know what you’re talking about.
Steffy: Oh, stop denying it, sheila! Stop denying it. I know how sick you are, how far you’re willing to go. I know what you did to brooke.
Hope: Well, I, um, tried to stop by the house earlier, but you weren’t home.
Brooke: I went to the office to see ridge.
Hope: Oh. And, uh, how did that go? Any progress?
Brooke: He says that he misses me. He’s concerned.
Liam: Of course he’s concerned. That goes along with loving you.
Brooke: He may care about me, but doesn’t mean he’s gonna get past what happened. I betrayed his trust. Now I have to deal with the consequences, whatever they may be.
Thomas: That’s an odd way to put it.
Thomas: That there is nothing I wouldn’t do to get you and dad back together.
Taylor: Okay, when you say it like that, it does sound a little weird. Honey, I just– I know how much this means to you and steffy. I know how much you wanna see your father and me back together.
Thomas: And that’s what you want too, right?
Hope: Mom, whether ridge forgives you or not, you have to forgive yourself and move on.
Brooke: That’s what ridge said. He said I need to stop torturing myself and stop living in the past.
Liam: He’s right about that much. Self-flagellating isn’t gonna help anyone.
Brooke: You think I like being stuck like this? I don’T. Constantly wondering what happened to me, why I let ridge slip away.
Hope: [Scoffs] But you haven’T. Not yet.
Brooke: He doesn’t live here anymore, does he? He seems happier over at steffy’S. And who can blame him? I think he feels safer with taylor.
Hope: Well, that might be a temporary situation, because, mom, I mean, at the end of the day, you are still married to him. And unless that changes, you still have a chance.
Ridge: Ah, good. You’re still here.
Thomas: I will be till I finish this sketch.
Ridge: I was talking to the pretty one.
Taylor: Well, then you were talking to thomas.
[Laughs] I’m gonna head out so you guys can work.
Ridge: Wait, wait, wait. Without answering the question? I mean, I overheard you guys.
Thomas: Yeah, mom. Answer the question.
Ridge: I–I was only kidding.
Taylor: The question. Do I wanna get back together with this guy? What do you think?
Sheila: If I did anything to brooke–
Sheila: I’m not saying that I did, but–
Steffy: I overheard thomas talking to you on the phone. Talking about he couldn’t take it–the little secret he was keeping? How you switched the labels on brooke’s bottle. She thought she was drinking non-alcoholic champagne, but you made sure it was the real stuff. No wonder she turned to vodka. She was drunk because of you.
Sheila: Okay. Fine. It’s true. I did it. I’m the one that got brooke to drink, and it’s a damn good thing that I did. You should be on your knees, steffy, thanking me profusely. Because of me, I’m the one that got your father away from brooke. And yet here you stand, lashing out at me, judging me, telling me I will have no place in my son’s life? No! If anything, I just solidified my place in his life, in yours. Don’t tell me… this isn’t what you’ve always wanted. Because we know it’s exactly what you’ve wanted. You’re welcome.
[Sfx: Chicken clucking] Everyone wants to be the cadbury bunny. Cause only he brings delicious cadbury creme eggs. While others may keep trying…
[Sfx: Chicken clucking]
Brooke: I’m not giving up. I know ridge is extremely hurt. But I also know that he still wants to be with me.
Hope: There you go. So have faith in that.
Liam: Yeah. That is what’s gonna get you through, just knowing that you belong together.
Brooke: We do. I pleaded for him to come home.
Hope: And what did he say?
Brooke: Uh, nothing much really. But I could tell he was quite torn about it. For now, he’s staying put, living with steffy and taylor. Steffy is harassing ridge at home, and thomas is harassing ridge at the office. They’re doing everything they possibly can to keep ridge and me apart.
Taylor: Okay. Um, I think–I think everyone knows how I feel. As a matter of fact, I think I’ve been too honest about where I stand on wanting a happy life with your father. But I’ve–I’ve also told steffy and thomas that I think it’s really important that– that you just heal right now, and you don’t know any pressure from anyone. Do you feel pressure from me?
Ridge: I don’T.
Taylor: A little bit?
Taylor: No? From the kids?
Ridge: No. Not at all. A thousand times a day maybe.
Thomas: Okay. All right. Maybe we’re a little vocal.
Taylor: A little? A “lottle.”
Ridge: A lottle? Really? A lottle? Yes. With rapid fire.
Ridge: A lottle.
Taylor: So see, thomas, th–this is what it is. I– you have to ease up on all of this. You can’t put any more pressure on us, okay? Seriously, you can’T. ‘Cause we don’t know what’s gonna happen. Your dad could go back to brooke at any time.
Thomas: I know.
Taylor: Do you, though?
Thomas: Yes. Yes. If–if… you and dad decide to make a go of it, and I’m pretty sure that you will, then… he has to want to be with you as much as you wanna be with him and not because steffy and i just said that you guys should be together.
Ridge: Pretty insightful.
Taylor: It is.
Thomas: Well, it’s true.
Taylor: Yes, it’s very true. So, you’re promising us, right? No more parent trap. You won’t do or say anything that could interfere with your dad’s decision about his marriage to brooke.
Steffy: You think I should be thanking you?
Sheila: You wanna see your parents together, don’t you? That’s what’s happening, isn’t it? Is it because of something that–that you or thomas did? No. It’s because of me. Because I took the initiative while you all set around watching your father waste his life away on a drunken slut.
Steffy: You mean alcoholic in recovery who hadn’t been tempted to drink in years until you tricked her to do it.
Sheila: I allowed her the ability to have what she really wanted. I allowed her to stop suppressing her desire to drink, to cheat. And it’s a good thing that I did. Because of brooke’s little slipup, your father is living at your house with your mother. A woman that he has always admired. And it won’t be long before they’re back together again. That’s what I want, steffy. I want that for both of them. I want that for you and thomas, for the children. You deserve to have your family reunited.
Steffy: Why do you even care?
Sheila: Because you’re my family too. I know–I know that you don’T… like to hear that and that you have a hard time dealing with that, but you’ll be able to one day. You’ll be able to accept me the same way that your mother has. She probably hasn’t said anything, but… she’s so wonderful. By giving me… a chance, believing that I’ve changed.
Steffy: No, you haven’T. What you did to brooke proves it. You’re just as dangerous. You are just as manipulative. You will never have a place in our lives. I’m putting an end to this.
Sheila: To what?
Steffy: You. No more stopping by my mom’s office. No more secret meetings with thomas. You’re done, sheila. I never wanna see your face… not ever again. I’m amber, I’ve lost 128 pounds with golo, taking release. I have literally tried everything. I was on the verge of getting gastric bypass surgery, and I saw the golo commercial, and it was the last thing I tried ’cause it worked. (Vo) can you spot the cinnamojis in your bowl?

Brooke: Bridget, you didn’t have to call and check on me. I know it’s late in new york.
Bridget: Actually, I just wanted to let you know I’m back in L.A. I’m working out of university hospital for a while to help with restructuring and shortages.
Brooke: Oh, that’s wonderful. It’ll be good to see you.
Bridget: You too. You hanging in there, mom?
Brooke: Yes. Thank you, sweetheart.
Woman: [Speaking on P.A.]
Bridget: Sorry, mom. They’re paging me. I’m gonna have to go.
Brooke: Oh, okay. You go. And just please stop by soon.
Bridget: I will. I promise. Love you, mom.
Brooke: I love you too, sweetheart. Bye, bridget.
[Sighs] Well, your sister’s in town.
Hope: [Gasps] Yes! That means I have backup now. Look, mom, what thomas and steffy do doesn’t even matter. The only thing that matters is ridge’s love for you.
Brooke: What if that’s not enough?
Hope: It is.
Brooke: Even if there’s an outside force working against us?
Liam: Outside force. What are you, uh– what are you referring to?
Brooke: [ Sighs ] I–I don’t know. It’s just this feeling I’m getting, and I can’t shake it. I told eric and ridge about it too.
Hope: What, is it like a feeling like someone’s working against you?
Brooke: [Sighs] I don’t know. Something or someone. Just…this feeling that I’m getting. It’s like ridge and I are up against more than we realize.
Sheila: You don’t know what you’re talking about.
Steffy: Oh, I do. And when my mother finds out what you’ve done, she’ll say the exact same thing. That kindness–
Sheila: No, you can’t say anything to taylor. You can’t tell anyone why brooke drank.
Steffy: You think I don’t wanna show everyone what a lying, manipulative person you are?
Sheila: Just think of your mom. She wants another chance with ridge after years of standing on the sidelines watching him pursue a pathetic destiny with brooke.
Steffy: Years you took away. You took her away. And now you think you can spike a few drinks and all is forgiven? You really are insane.
Sheila: You want to see them back together again, and thomas does too.
Steffy: How long has he been involved?
Steffy: Thomas. Did he help you?
Sheila: No. No, he just found out about it recently. And I told him the same thing I’m telling you right now. Your family can be whole again.
Sheila: You just need to keep quiet. So please, steffy, think of your mother’s happiness and your father’s too. Doesn’t he deserve to be free of brooke?
Steffy: He does, but not like this– not being manipulated into it.
Sheila: Does it really matter?
Steffy: If my parents wanna be back together, it’s because they wanna be back together, not because you did something wrong and sick.
Sheila: I exposed brooke, that’s all.
Steffy: You exposed yourself for the dangerous person that you are. Everyone’s gonna know the truth.
Steffy: Any interest of finn having a relationship with you, that you could actually–
Sheila: Just stop, steffy!
Steffy: You are never having a relationship with finn. Never.
Sheila: That is not your decision to make.
Steffy: He is my husband.
Sheila: He is my son. And I’m warning you, don’t do anything to come between finn and me. Not a damn thing! Do you hear me? You keep your mouth shut.

Taylor: What is it, thomas? What’s–what’s wrong?
Ridge: Is there something you wanna tell us?
Thomas: Well, uh, that you–you still have feelings for mom, which I wasn’t sure about, but, obviously, you do, right?
Ridge: Yeah. What– yeah, of course I do.
Ridge: What are you–
Thomas: And I know that you’re still married to brooke. But when I see you two together, I see amazing potential. I see two people that could build an incredibly wonderful life together, and it just seems meant to be.
Hope: Not sure I’m following. Are you suggesting that thomas and steffy are somehow manipulating all of this?
Brooke: It’s just– it’s this overwhelming feeling that I keep getting, that I’m–I’m missing something, that there’s a– a bigger explanation to all of this.
Steffy: You’re warning me? Or do you mean threatening? Because if that’s how you speak to finn’s wife, the mother of his child, how do you expect to make inroads with him?
Sheila: Oh, but that’s just it. You tell me I can’t– I won’t be a part of his life, and yet it’s like you’re baiting me, trying to get me to do things.
Steffy: Show that you haven’t changed? Yeah, whatever works.
Sheila: Just have a little understanding, please. You’ve never given me a chance since I came back to town. You won’t even consider that I might have good intentions, even though your mother was open to that possibility, the one person, out of everyone, who had the right to doubt that I’m reformed.
Steffy: You’re not reformed, sheila. You purposely got an alcoholic to drink.
Sheila: What would you have done? Hmm? Go ahead, steffy. Why don’t you tell me? What would you have done… if you had brooke in your face telling you that she was never going to let you be a part of your son’s life? I couldn’T… let her get in the way, and I won’t let you either.
Steffy: So this is a threat.
Sheila: I didn’t want it to be this way. But finn’s my only hope. He’s the one child that… I could have a future with, a life with. A life that I could have had with you too. I really wanted that, steffy. An opportunity to love you.
Steffy: Who would ever want that from you? Being loved by you is a curse– a curse that finn will never have to know. I will make sure of it. I will make him realize that you’re still a criminal. You’re still as dangerous as ever. You will never be part of our lives. Do you hear me?
Sheila: No! If one of us isn’t meant to be in finn’s life, it’s gonna be you, steffy. You.
