Hope: I’m, uh, looking for my father. Who are you?
Hope: Taylor and steffy
have to realize that this
douglas situation is going
to put you and ridge at odds.
what they want!
Ridge: Thomas has moved
into my dad’s house
and he wants douglas to be
part of that and I support it.
Brooke: No. Oh, my gosh,
ridge. No! Thomas can’t have
whatever he wants.
But that little boy can’t live
with hope and liam anymore.
He needs to know
where his father is.
He needs to understand that.
And I really need
you to support me in this.
Liam: Hey, brooke.
Brooke: Oh. Uh, hi, liam.
Liam: Hi. Sorry. Yeah, I didn’t mean to, um– if I was interrupting…
Brooke: No. Don’t worry. No. Uh, you just got in?
Liam: Yeah. Yeah. Long day, you know?
Brooke: Yeah. I gathered from hope. I was with her earlier.
Liam: Oh, earlier? Not– uh, okay. I, kind of, thought she’d be here now.
Brooke: No, she went to visit her dad.
Deacon: Damn it.
Paul: What’s the matter?
Deacon: The distributor screwed up the order, again.
Paul: Oh, no, you mean you got the wrong napkins? Dude, you should get really, really upset about it. What’s bugging you?
Deacon: Stuff. Stuff’s bugging me.
Paul: What kind of stuff? And does she have a name?
Deacon: What are you? A cop? Just let it go.
Paul: Whatever you say.
Deacon: Tonight’s just getting better and better. Oh, boy.
Ridge: Hi. I need to talk to you.
Deacon: Yeah? Well, unless you’re here to order the fettuccine alfredo, I’d say it’s a wasted trip because–
Ridge: You gotta stay away from brooke.
Deacon: Okay, we’re gonna do that again. I’m, just, gonna move this away. You were saying?
Deacon: Okay. So, uh, go ahead and thump your chest. Get it out of your system and then, please go, ’cause I’m at work.
Ridge: Is this a joke to you? ‘Cause I gotta tell you, it’s not a joke to me. I saw the picture that hope posted of you and my wife.
Deacon: ‘Course you did.
Ridge: And that’s after she told you to stay away from her. I told you. She told you.
Deacon: I remember.
Ridge: Do you? Because as soon as I leave town, you’re sniffing around her, what is that?
Deacon: Stop it, come on, “sniffing around?” That’s not why I was there.
Ridge: You’re just bad news for everyone, especially the people you claim you care about.
Liam: Wow. Really? Douglas is– it’s a– he’s going to spend another night over with thomas?
[ Brooke sighing ]
Brooke: Eric is hosting a family dinner and kelly and hayes are there. Douglas is having a great time. He wants to stay. Hope didn’t want to upset him.
Liam: All right, okay. And beth is still at lola’S.
>>E: She had time to go visit her dad at his apartment.
Liam: Yeah. Seems like he’s settling in there nicely. Although I know, he wishes he could drop by here a little more.
[ Brooke chuckling ]
Brooke: That is no longer an option.
Liam: Yeah, I– you’ve made it abundantly clear how adamant ridge is about him– him staying away.
Brooke: Away from me, not from hope. Nobody’s going to deny her of a relationship with her father.
Liam: Yeah– I mean, of course. Yes. It still affects hope, though. I mean, she– she’s trying to do right by ridge. She’s trying to respect his wishes. Deacon is still her dad, though, so it’s like, it does kind of make the situation harder for everybody.
Brooke: Yeah. It’s just ridge is… you know, ridge. He’S… protective.
Brooke: And especially now that sheila is no longer in our lives.
Liam: And now that she’s no longer in our lives, he gets to take all that pent up energy and focus it right on deacon.
Brooke: Exactly. Sheila is dead. I mean, she’s no longer a threat to us. We don’t have to hear from her or see her ever again.
Hope: Hello? I asked who you are. Hi, I’m denise.
Liam: So did hope, uh… did hope say anything about when she might be back?
Brooke: Oh, I don’t think she’ll be gone that long. She just wanted to see her dad. I think it was more of a diversion.
Liam: From this whole thing with douglas.
Brooke: Yeah. I can’t believe thomas is doing this. A custody battle.
Liam: Potential custody battle. I’m hoping the two of them can work out some kind of arrangement where there aren’t lawyers and a judge involved.
Brooke: That would be nice. But thomas is already acting like douglas is going to move in with him full-time. And he has this image in his head that he’s going to be there as a father, 24/7 and he hasn’t taken care of that little boy for years.
Liam: We all know why that is, because the dude was actually unstable. I mean, he was dealing with his own issues. And that’s– that’s the whole reason hope and I took douglas in in the first place.
Brooke: I know. And now out of the blue, he wants him back. He wants to raise him at the forrester estate, as the heir apparent?
Liam: Did he actually say that? Like, those words?
Brooke: Well, no. I mean, not in those exact words. But why all this sudden interest in everything forrester for his son? I think a lot of it might be steffy and taylor. I think they’re pushing for this. I mean, we all want douglas to know and be a part of his father’s family. But you’re his family, too. You and hope and beth. Hope is his mother. And beth, she thinks that that’s her older brother. And if he’s no longer living with the three of you then, oh, all of that’s going to change.
Liam: You know, even I see douglas as– as a kind of son. And I know that thomas is saying that hope can visit him whenever she wants. But that– that is not the same as douglas living with us.
Brooke: No, it’s not the same at all. And hope knows that. And I think it’s stressing her out. And it’s good she went over to see deacon. Maybe she can, just, unwind a bit. Okay. I know you’re not a fan of deacon.
Liam: Eh… I am and I’m not. It depends on my mood.
Deacon: You just never miss a chance to say what a lowlife I am, do ya?
Ridge: To be fair, deacon, it’s right in front of me. You’re bad for brooke and everyone she cares about. Stay away from her.
Deacon: Really? Does that include my daughter? You know, the one that brooke and I created together? I know it bothers you when i say that, but it is a fact.
Ridge: And the other fact is that you’ve hurt this young woman over and over again with the bad choices you continue to make.
Deacon: You’ve never made any bad choices, have you? Huh? Nothing that you regret. God, it– it must be so amazing to be this perfect.
Ridge: Thank you. Silly, silly boy. I’m not perfect. And I’m not a con. Sorry, ex-con. You’ve changed your ways, right?
Deacon: You know, you never even give me a chance. You just always assume–
Ridge: Assume what?
[ Crowd murmuring ] Excuse– I’m sorry. Excuse me. Assume what? That you are exactly who I know you are? That you’re going to move in on someone when no one’s watching like you did on new year’s eve?
Deacon: That wasn’t me. That was sheila. She switched the damn–
Ridge: That picture you took was taken in my office. You know how I know that? My name is right on the door. I don’t want you in my office. I don’t want you in my house, the house I share with brooke. I don’t want you anywhere near my family because all you do is cause trouble.
Deacon: I’m not sure I cause trouble, I– sometimes trouble finds me.
Ridge: Are you kidding me? So now it’s trouble’s fault. You never take responsibility. You’re just like sheila. It’s never your fault. And you know what happened to sheila. She got eaten by a bear. And you know why? She had no one to talk to, no one to turn to except this.
Hope: Hi. What’s your name and how do you know my dad? Okay. You don’t want to answer and I think I might know why. Oh, my gosh. I can’t believe what I’m seeing. No matter who you are,
Liam: I guess I hoped that things would settle down. Like, with sheila finally out of the picture for good, things would return to normal. Whatever normal happens to look like between the forresters and the logans. But now I’m not– you know, I’m not even so sure between this whole, you know, thomas wanting douglas to come live with him full-time. And then there’s this ongoing thing between ridge and deacon. It’s like– uh!
Brooke: Mm-hm. And you don’t want hope getting caught up in the middle of that, again.
Liam: No, it’s too much. It’s too much. She’s dealing with enough on her own, you know, like.
Brooke: Okay. But there’s something you’re not saying.
[ Sighing ] Okay. Hope finally has the relationship that she’s wanted with her father for a really long time. Right? You know? And I just– I don’t know– I don’t– I don’t even know how long that’s gonna last now. Like, deacon is doing his absolute best. He is trying his hardest not to disappoint hope again. He’s trying to make all the right choices so he can make his daughter proud. But old habits, you know, they’re hard to break. And there are people in hope’s life, and you know who I’m talking about, who are just waiting. They’re just– they’re just waiting for deacon to slip up or to– or to give in to temptation again, whatever that might look like, so that they can– so, that they can pounce, right? They can give hope the old, “I told you so.” And if that happens… I hope that doesn’t happen.
Deacon: Sheila and i were never friends, not in the real sense of the word, anyway.
Ridge: Can I stop you? I don’t, uh… I don’t care who you may or may not have been to each other. The fact is that she was a psycho. A lunatic. And you allowed her to be in your life for a long time. That’s the kind of choices you make. And that’s the kind of person I don’t want around my family. I don’t want around brooke. And I don’t want around hope.
Deacon: No, you’d like if, uh, I was just banned from hope’s life–
Ridge: Are you kidding me? I would love that. You know why? ‘Cause you are toxic. Hmm. Okay. Well, fortunately, she doesn’t feel the same way. She wants to be close with me. I know she wants to be close with you. She wants you to be who she wants you to be. It’s never gonna happen. We both know it’s gonna end in disaster.
[ Phone ringing ]
Deacon: Hey, liam. What’s going on?
Liam: Hey. Uh… so, I’m with brooke. I’ve been texting hope but she’s not getting back to me. But brooke says that– that hope went over to your apartment to see you.
Deacon: She went to my apartment?
Liam: Uh, yeah. Uh, she’s not there now? No, I’m at work. Uh, liam, thanks for the heads up, okay?
Deacon: I gotta go.
Brooke: Deacon wasn’t with hope? Uh, apparently not. And uh, deacon was acting a little weird on the phone. So I wonder what that’s about. This can’t be. It can’T. Dad. I can’t believe what I ‘m seeing. You never told me that you have a new woman in your life. My moderate to severe plaque psoriasis…
Liam: Okay. Wait. So… if hope showed up to deacon’s place and he’s not there, why doesn’t she just go downstairs to il giardino? Maybe she didn’t want to interrupt him at work. Yeah. Okay. It’s a little weird they weren’t together.
Ridge: Who wasn’t together? Hi.
Brooke: Oh, hi. Hope and her father. Hope went to spend a little time with deacon and apparently they missed each other.
Ridge: Huh? Well, I– I don’t know. I– I was with him when you called il giardino. I was… I was with him there.
Brooke: You went to see deacon, too?
Ridge: Yeah. Probably not for the same reason that hope went to see him.
Liam: Okay, so. So did deacon seird to you?
Ridge: Did deacon seem weird? He always seems weird to me. What do you mean? But he took off pretty quick after you guys hung up, probably to go back to his apartment and clean up beer bottles and whatever else is on his floor.
Brooke: Ridge, come on.
Ridge: I’m sorry. I shouldn’t do that. I shouldn’t think the worst of the worst person I’ve ever met. What do you want to say? He lets people down.
Brooke: Why did you go to see him?
Ridge: The picture that hope posted. The three of you guys in my office? I’m not okay with it. And I’m not saying it was you, it had nothing to do with you. It was all him. But he has to know that I can’t tolerate this kind of stuff, right?
Brooke: Did it get physical?
Ridge: No, it didn’t get physical. What am I, 12? No, it was fine. He has hurt you so badly, he’s hurt hope. And I just don’t want that to happen again. Is that okay?
Hope: Dad, I had no idea that you were seeing someone. Why didn’t you tell me? Deacon: Why– why didn’t I? Why didn’t I tell you?
Hope: Why did you hide it? Did you think I wouldn’t approve?
Deacon: No, I– you know, I just– okay, listen. Let me put it this way.
Hope: Well, I mean, maybe you could start with an introduction.
Deacon: Okay, uh… just before I do that, though, I just want you to know this isn’t what you think it is.
[ Hope laughing ]
Hope: Dad, you’re a grown man. And I want you to be happy. And I– I know how you feel about mom, but she has ridge. And if you have moved on, then–
Deacon: I haven’t decided anything yet. This was A… totally rando thing. I mean, completely unexpected.
Hope: Okay, well, sometimes the best things in life just happen that way. Meanwhile, I feel like we are being rude. I’m so sorry. We’re– we’re– we’re yammering on and on, and I don’t even know your name. I’m– I’m hope.
Sheila: [Southern accent] Um, nicholina. Li– lina for short.
[ Laughter ]
Hope: Oh, that’s a lovely name. Isn– isn’t that italian?
Sheila: Uh, means I always win.
Deacon: Uh, lina is an old friend of mine. We go way back. Um, she just showed up unexpectedly.
Hope: Yeah, same to you.
Deacon: Is everything okay?
Hope: Uh yeah, it’s just, um. Sorry. The more I look at you, I– I feel like maybe we’ve met somewhere before. Do I… do I know you?
