Hope: Here you go.
Brooke: Thank you. It’s so quiet without liam and the kids.
Hope: Yeah. Oh, liam actually has a meeting with bill and wyatt.
Brooke: Well, that’s good. He’s working a lot.
Hope: And I think it’s nice that he’s spending time with his father. It’s a bit of a reminder for myself not to neglect my dad.
Brooke: What? Honey, you’re not neglecting your father. You were just on the phone with him, and he said he was busy dealing with something.
Sheila: Hey, roomie.
Deacon: Can we not? We are not roomies.
Sheila: What would you rather I say? Live-in lover?
Deacon: I’m letting you crash here, and I’m obviously nuts for doing it.
Sheila: Well, you know what, I look around, I’m thinking that we could really spruce this place up. Maybe go with a– a new color palette, a couple of floral pillows.
Deacon: I don’t know what’s worse, floral pillows or a supposedly dead fugitive staring me in the face all day.
Sheila: All day and all night. I’ll definitely make it worth your while. I will fulfill whatever needs you have, and I’ll give you a lot of money too.
Steffy: So cute, like with that little laugh there, how adorable was that? The kids are all settled in with amelia.
Finn: Yeah, it was super cute. Douglas was teaching hayes how to sketch a rocket ship. Very advanced stuff.
Taylor: Well, I am in heaven watching all of them together.
Ridge: Donna, dad, thanks again for having us. Thank you.
Finn: And thanks for including my mom, eric. She’s on her way.
Eric: That’s my pleasure. That’s what tonight’s all about, isn’t it? Reconnecting with one another, reminding each other how much… how much we depend on each other. And it’s wonderful to see you again, I can tell you that.
Steffy: Couldn’t agree more.
Taylor: The miracle of monaco lives on.
Ridge: You look really good, dad.
Donna: Doesn’t he now?
Donna: My dashing eric.
Eric: Thank you.
Donna: You’re welcome.
Finn: Oh, mom. Hey, you made it.
Li: A bit late.
Finn: It’s all right, please.
Li: I wanted to get this for you, eric. I really appreciate you inviting me.
Eric: Of course. Thank you, that’s very thoughtful. You know, we cannot stop marveling that your son is here.
Li: I know some of you still have issues with how I handled things.
Finn: M– mom, you saved my life. That’s all that matters.
Li: I’m still in awe of it myself. That I get many more years with my beautiful boy.
Finn: Well, it’s because of you. And I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for you.
Eric: We’ve done everything we can to make it clear to him that he is now a member of the forrester family, and that– that applies to you, too.
Li: Thank you.
Finn: Okay, well, come on in. Have a drink, yeah? Maybe one of eric’s famous martinis?
Eric: Okay, at least one.
Steffy: Make sure the kids aren’t drawing on granddad’s furniture.
Taylor: Well, I’m– I’m glad we’re doing this. You know, it’s good to have everybody together.
Brooke: Uh-huh. Nothing from ridge.
Hope: I’m sure it’s a lot with the kids running around. They’re probably getting, you know, ready for dinner.
Brooke: Just feels strange not being there. I am his wife, after all.
Hope: Yeah, that would’ve been nice.
Brooke: I do understand though. I mean, they’re still trying to process everything that’s happened. Finding out that finn is alive, and sheila out of our lives, once and for all.
Sheila: I’m gonna be here for a very long time.
Deacon: Don’t remind me.
Sheila: You know what? You weren’t complaining last night, so why don’t we have a repeat performance, huh? We’re both stuck in this shabby little place, we may as well make the most of it.
Deacon: I gotta go down to the bar and clock in.
Sheila: Oh, come on. You have some fun with me before you go. Hmm? Smile. Enjoy yourself. Why don’t we just enjoy our new living arrangement?
Sheila: Do you really have to go to work?
Deacon: I do if I don’t want to be late.
Sheila: Well, maybe I can come down later and keep you company.
Deacon: You do not step a foot outside. Do you understand? Look, if anyone finds out the truth, especially hope and brooke, if they figure out that you’re alive and kicking, and that you’re staying here. You know what that’s gonna–
Sheila: Oh, would you just chill!
[ Sheila sighing ]
Hope: I am glad that douglas is having a fun time over at eric’S. They’re his family too. Though, I admit, him staying for another night for dinner, threw me for a loop. I just wish that thomas had given me a bit of a heads-up, that’s all.
Brooke: Let’s hope that that doesn’t become a habit.
Hope: Anyways, I’m surprised that taylor’s the one pushing so aggressively for thomas to get more custody.
Brooke: She knows that ridge and I won’t be on the same page when it comes to thomas. So, she’s using this to undermine my marriage. I’m sure that’s what this forrester party is all about.
Ridge: What are you talking about? I was a huge success. I pulled a rabbit out of a hat. Dad, you remember that?
Taylor: It was not a rabbit. You said it was a rabbit. It was a stuffed monkey, and the kids were so confused. Do you remember?
Ridge: It was a stuffed monkey rabbit, it was perfect.
Donna: Excuse me, uh, could I have everyone’s attention, please? Actually, could you two please help me hang this above the fireplace?
Thomas: Yeah, sure.
Donna: Thank you. Well, the time has come for, um, a new portrait over the fireplace.
Eric: Oh, donna, I don’t really think this is the time for that.
Donna: Oh, actually, no, eric, this is the perfect time. In fact, it’s– it’s long overdue. As many of you know, I have been away from this home for many years. But now I’m back, and I have the– the privilege of living with this– this wonderful man. And as the new lady of this house, I would like to make some much-needed changes. To put a stamp on this home in a way that I– I hope will be permanent. A forever fixture. The first person that you see when you walk through the door.
Ridge: See now, that makes sense.
Taylor: Aw, okay.
Ridge: Did you think for one second, it was gonna be her?
Taylor: I did, yeah, I really did. A 1000%. PDonna: It’s about time your handsome face hung above the fireplace. After all, it’s your home, eric.
Eric: Wow. Look at that.
Donna: What do you think? Do you like it?
Eric: It’s wonderful, thank you.
Eric: Thank you.
Thomas: You know, uh, donna’s right. Grandad, you deserve this. How you– you’ve always supported me. I mean, my entire family has been there for me, and now to have douglas here. In your home, our home. It’s a– it’s an honor. You know, you, grandad, and dad, you both have taught me everything I know. How to– how to be a designer. How to be a father. How to be a man. I went through some dark times, but I’m coming out the other side. And I’m a better man for it. And, um, you were always there for me. Especially you.
Ridge: Come here. I’m so proud of you. I’m steve, I lost 138 pounds in nine months on golo
Hope: Taylor and steffy have to realize that this douglas situation is going to put you and ridge at odds.
Brooke: Yeah, well, that’s the point. They want us to disagree. That way they can hold one more thing against the logans.
Hope: Well, I… I feel bad because I don’t wanna put you in that position.
Brooke: Honey, you’re not putting me in that position, they are. By convincing thomas to drag douglas out of here, away from you.
Hope: And one would think, as mothers, that they would understand how damaging this could be for douglas.
Brooke: Yeah. I mean, taylor should know better. Being a psychiatrist. Until thomas can show more stability and consistency, there is no way that douglas is moving out of here.
Hope: Okay, mom, I… I appreciate your enthusiasm about this, but I don’t want it to have any consequences.
Brooke: Honey, it’s okay. Ridge and I won’t let it affect us.
Hope: Well, I appreciate the support.
Brooke: I will always have your back, sweetie. Always.
Hope: Thank you. So, since douglas is with thomas, and beth is at her overnight, and liam is at his meeting, and dad sounded stressed on the phone, I am actually going to go pay him a visit.
[ Deacon moaning ]
Deacon: Wait, one second.
Sheila: What are you doing? What are you doing?
Deacon: I told you, I gotta go to work! I gotta go to work. Listen, if you and your nine toes wanna go hide somewhere else, I won’t take it personally.
Sheila: Oh, god.
Deacon: Come on. What’s with the face? You’re not gonna be alone that long. Take a nap or something.
Sheila: Well, it’s just like… I can’t help thinking about finn.
Deacon: Sheila, you know you’re never gonna see him again.
Sheila: Yeah, but I can’t help wondering how he really feels about my… my supposed death.
Finn: Well, that is the best thing I’ve heard all day, I love you, too. More than all the dolphins in the ocean.
Kelly: And all the butterflies?
Finn: Yeah, and all the butterflies. And the– and the ladybugs, too.
[ Steffy laughing ]
Steffy: Did you make that? Oh, is that the four of us? I have to show it to hayes once he’s up from his nap.
Steffy: Aw. You’re happy finn’s back? I’m happy, too.
Finn: Hey, everyone? I’d like to say a few things if it’s okay. Um, this has been a long road for all of us. I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for my wife. And our children, who made me keep fighting. When I slowly began to regain consciousness, I pictured a moment just like this. And with every beat of my heart, I would just say steffy’s name over and over my head, like a mantra. Like a prayer. I couldn’t move my legs. I didn’t know how I would get back here, but… I knew I had to find a way. Back to you, back to the kids. And to have that kind of, that depth and devotion, to tap into, that’S… that’s what pulled me through. That’s– that’s what saved me. Few people get to know that kind of connection, and if they do, they’re lucky. So, I think we’re all very lucky. Ice cream is like whooping cough,
Deacon: Okay, I gotta go.
Sheila: Oh, so soon.
Deacon: Oh, like you haven’t been stalling me.
Sheila: What’s a girl to do? I’m already so bored.
Deacon: Yeah, I’m sure you’ll figure something out, all right? Just lay low, and stay quiet.
Sheila: Yeah, yeah.
Deacon: Sheila, lay low. Stay quiet. No one can see or hear you.
Deacon: All right. I’ll bring you something to eat when I come back.
Sheila: Okay. I’ll be here, all by my lonesome.
[ Overlapping conversation ]
Thomas: Hey, buddy. You having fun?
Douglas: Yeah, this is awesome.
Thomas: Ah okay, cool.
Eric: That’s the, uh– joys of being a grandparent. You can watch the kids play from a safe distance.
[ Laughing ]
Li: I’m still new at being a grandmother. Watching these two laugh and play, it’s just magical.
Ridge: Magical, is it? Yeah, especially from a distance, ’cause you’re not gonna pull a hammy that way.
Taylor: Oh, yes. But see, I– I loved those days very much, and I also love these days.
Ridge: No, this is great. Thank you, once again for giving us what we didn’t know you needed.
Eric: It’s marvelous. Absolutely wonderful. We should do this more often.
Ridge: Yes, we should do it more often.
Taylor: I agree.
Ridge: Invite us more often. Look at what we have, look around you. Look how fortunate we are. It’s a family. These are my kids.
Ridge: I mean, you guys running around in here, and I just, I’m thank– thank you, if I haven’t said it before, for giving me such a wonderful family.
Taylor: Yeah. Yeah, well, you’re welcome. This is what it’s all about. I mean, can you feel the love in the room? It’s just, it’s so there. All the connection. It’s just beautiful, it really is. And the best thing about it, is you two. Right now, just seeing the two of you smiling and laughing with your kids. It’s everything.
Ridge: It is everything. I’m gonna remember this moment for a long time. And I promise right now, you can quote me, I will be, from now on, the best man I can possibly be for you.
Steffy: Aw, dad, you are the best.
Ridge: See? Come here.
Thomas: I love you, mom.
Taylor: I love you, baby.
Ridge: What about this guy?
Finn: Thanks. Ridge: I love you, buddy.
[ Phone ringing ]
Brooke: Donna, how’s it going over there at eric’s?
Donna: Ridge just gave a really nice speech about his kids. And, of course, everyone’s overjoyed about finn. Um, it’s really a sweet, sweet evening. It’s– it’S… there’s only one problem, brooke. You’re not here. Taylor is here with ridge instead.
Ridge: You look–
Taylor: Thank you.
Ridge: Thanks for dressing up tonight, finally.
[ Taylor laughing ] Feels nice. Come here.
Brooke: Taylor is using this sweet family bonding time as a way to manipulate ridge’s feelings.
Hope: Dad? Are you here? I’m looking for my father. Who are you?
