Steffy: How was the water?
Steffy: Oh. [Giggles]
[ Finn laughs ]
Steffy: Why do I set you up every time?
Finn: Because you enjoy my sense of humor. It’s probably your favorite thing about me.
Steffy: That is true. But my absolute favorite thing is that you’re here. And you’re alive. And you’re still with me.
Finn: Yes, I… agree. That is something I really like about myself, too.
Finn: But, to answer your question, the water, it was– it was great. Almost makes me feel like I’m back to where I was. Almost.
Steffy: Yeah. I feel like you’re getting back to your normal self. You’re surfing again. Going back to work. It’s like you’re getting your life back.
Finn: Yeah, but the most important part of my life? The epicenter of my world? Is you. Our kids. Our beautiful family.
Hope: I am trying really hard not to overreact.
Brooke: Oh, honey, why didn’t you just go over there and pick him up yourself?
Hope: Oh, because I don’t want to cause a scene, especially in front of douglas. And besides, I… I talked to him on the phone. I heard how excited he is, mom. And it’s not like I don’t want him to have sleepovers with his dad, I do.
Brooke: Okay. You know what thomas wants. He wants douglas to live with him full time. And that’s what taylor wants, too. She wants that little boy to be taken away from you. We can’t allow that to happen.
Thomas: We may have got a little overzealous with the paint here.
Eric: Oh, absolutely not. I don’t– I don’t think that’s possible. This is art.
Douglas: This one’s almost done. Just needs a little more blue.
Eric: Yeah, I think it’s possible we may have another artist in the family.
Thomas: Oh, wouldn’t that be something?
Eric: It would.
Taylor: Knock, knock.
Taylor: Hi, uh-oh.
Thomas: Whoa, douglas.
Taylor: Whoa, whoa, what?
Eric: Your hands, you got you got a painter…
Taylor: Oh, okay well, I still– I still need a hug, but I’ll settle for a kiss. Muah!
[ Taylor laughing ] What are you doing, bear? What is all this?
Steffy: Feeling you like this again. Your lips. Your arms. My body against yours. I can’t believe you’re here. Ha, I know I keep saying it.
Steffy: I feel like I just have to keep saying it out loud.
Finn: What do you know? I’m right here. I’m not going anywhere. Except work because, you know, my shift starts later.
Steffy: Yeah, I get that. I’m actually looking forward to getting to work. I can’t wait to see how everything’s going with thomas.
Finn: What? Douglas, you mean?
Steffy: Yeah, he stayed with him at granddad’S.
Finn: What’s hope feeling about all this?
Steffy: Thomas and douglas have been apart for way too long. The only thing that hope should be feeling is gratitude. I mean, if she really cares about douglas, she’ll understand it’s time for him to be with thomas.
Taylor: I am so impressed.
Douglas: Thank you.
Taylor: Seriously, this is so good.
Douglas: Thank you.
Taylor: You’re really good at this. I– I have my eye on this one, right there. Yeah, can I? Can I have that one from my office?
Douglas: Oh, I’m sorry. I was thinking of giving this one to mom because she likes daffodils so much, but–
Taylor: That makes sense.
Douglas: I can make the next one for you, whatever you want.
Thomas: Speaking of mom, we should probably give her a call. I’m sure she’s wondering about you.
Thomas: You know what? Uhm, I’m sorry about the mess. We’ll get it all cleaned up for you.
Eric: Wait, mess?
Eric: This is not a mess. This is art in the making. All right. Now, leave it as it is. Don’t clean this up at all. I want to join him when I get back.
Douglas: Hi, mom.
Hope: Hi, douglas. How are you?
Hope: Yeah? You still having fun?
Douglas: So much fun. We’re swimming a lot, riding bikes. Oh, and um, dad bought some paints, um, I’m making all sorts of pictures. One is for you.
Hope: Oh, sweetie, I can’t wait to see that. Um, actually, is your dad available? Because I would love to talk to him.
Douglas: Oh, sure. Yeah. Um, love you, mom. Um, mom wants to talk to you.
Thomas: Oh. Hi, hope.
Hope: Hi, thomas. Um, douglas seems like he’s having fun.
Thomas: Oh, tons of fun.
Hope: I’m so happy
to hear that. But I– I do think it is time to bring him home.
Thomas: Well, I mean, th– this is the forrester home. So, this is his home. It’s where his father lives.
Hope: Okay, but you’ve already had him longer than we originally agreed to.
Taylor: There, yeah, can I…
Thomas: Look, I realize that you miss him, but we need this time together, okay? So… we’ll be in touch soon.
Hope: Okay, but tho–
[ Call ending ] Wait, thomas?
Brooke: What is it? When is douglas coming home?
Hope: I, um… I don’t know. Dry skin is sensitive skin, too.
Brooke: So, thomas wouldn’t say when he’s going to bring douglas back?
Hope: No, just that he’d be in touch.
Brooke: What? Oh, god! This is– this is insane. This is no way to co-parent. Douglas is gonna be so confused. I mean, that just proves that thomas doesn’t have douglas’s best interests at heart.
Hope: Okay, well, then what am I supposed to do? Go to court? I don’t want to put him through that.
Brooke: No, hopefully it won’t come to that.
Hope: What are you doing?
Brooke: Douglas belongs here with you and beth. I’m gonna go over there and find out what the hell is going on.
Douglas: Wait, a picture of outer space like with all the planets and everything.
Taylor: Yes. And like a spaceships and– and aliens, maybe. What do you think?
Douglas: Totally. Oh, but I’m out of black. Dad, please, can we get some more? The best idea, but I need more black paint.
Taylor: What about glitter?
Douglas: Oh, and glitter.
Thomas: Oh, okay. Okay. Yeah, yeah. Let’s– let’s run down to the store and get some.
Taylor: Oh, my god. This
Thomas: It’s going to be awesome.
[ Phone pinging ]
Taylor: It’s gonna be… oh, oh, hold on.
Thomas: Everything okay?
Taylor: Yeah, it’s just. It’s a conference call that I was supposed to join. Thank god I setup a reminder. You know what? I can’T. I don’t have time to run back to the office. Can I stay?
Thomas: Yeah, stay, stay. Make yourself at home.
Taylor: Thank you. Okay.
Thomas: All right. Let’s get out of grandma’s way. And yeah.
Douglas: Yeah, let’s do it.
Taylor: All right. I’ll see you guys when you get back.
Thomas: Okay, so if you do some glitter. We should probably set up ground rules. Because that stuff can get everywhere.
Taylor: I just wanted to tell you how happy I am. I– I have wanted this for you for such a long time, and you deserve it. It’s finally happening.
Steffy: It’s crazy to think how things have turned around for our family. My god. When I saw you in monaco. It’s like our lives changed forever.
Finn: It’s me.
I found you.
Steffy, it’s me.
It’s really me.
Steffy: Oh, my god!
Finn: It’s okay. It’s okay.
[ Bell tolling ]
Finn: That’s a day neither one of us will ever forget.
Taylor: Yeah. We’ll talk soon. All right, bye.
Brooke: [Laughing] Oh. Oh, taylor. Of course. I should have known the ringleader would be here.
Taylor: The ringleader?
Brooke: Behind this ridiculous plan to take douglas away from hope. I’ve been telling everyone…
Taylor: So, I’m the evil ringleader.
[Chuckles] Okay. Well, everyone’s the villain in someone’s story, huh brooke? Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go.
Brooke: Where’s douglas?
Taylor: Douglas is with his father.
Brooke: Where? Is he bringing him home?
Taylor: Yes. Yes, he’s bringing him home, as soon as they finish getting art supplies, he’ll be coming home through that door.
Brooke: No. Home to hope. When is that happening?
Taylor: That’s not my call. That would be between thomas and hope. I’m sure they’ll figure it out.
Brooke: Okay. Hope was very clear that thomas could only have douglas for one night only. Now, she’s been very generous, letting him keep him longer.
Taylor: Okay, I– I do. I– I see the problem. You think that hope can dictate when my son is allowed to see his son? Okay.
Brooke: Oh, wow. Okay.
Taylor: Yeah. I feel the same way. Yeah. Um, my grandson–
Brooke: No, he’s my grandson, too. I thought you understood the other day when I told you I am not letting thomas take douglas away from his home and his family.
Taylor: I understood where you were coming from. But, I don’t agree. Douglas is a forrester. This is a forrester home. So, when douglas is with thomas. His father, his only remaining biological parent? That’s not taking him away, brooke. That’s bringing him home, to his family.
Steffy: Let’s push it to three. I have a two o’clock finance meeting and that usually runs long.
Jimmy: Great, I’ll let them know.
Steffy: Hey, thank you.
Hope: Oh, hi jimmy.
Jimmy: Hi, hope.
Hope: Um, hi steffy, is ridge in?
Steffy: My father is in a meeting downtown. Is this something I can help you with?
Hope: Well, I…
Steffy: Is it about hope for the future? The deadline?
Hope: It’s not about business.
Steffy: Oh. So, this must be about douglas.
Hope: I, um… I wanted to talk to ridge about the situation, yes.
Steffy: Thomas spending time with his son isn’t a situation, it’s life. It’s a normal father-son relationship.
Hope: And I want that for him. Very much. I– I want douglas to have a close relationship with his father.
Steffy: Then, I apologize if I misunderstood your tone.
Hope: The situation is thomas wanting to change where douglas calls home.
Steffy: He’s his father. He has every right to want douglas at his home.
Hope: And I’m his mother. Douglas will always know about caroline and carry those memories with him. But, she’s gone now. I adopted douglas. Thomas and I share custody.
Steffy: How much sharing has been going on? Douglas has been living with you on your mother’s property for a very long time now. I think that’s finally about to change.
Hope: Why are you acting like there’s some kind of wrong that needs to be righted here?
Steffy: Thomas not having access to his son is wrong.
Hope: And who’s saying that he doesn’t have access? Thomas knows that I fully support him spending as much time with douglas as he wants.
Steffy: Only if it’s on your terms. Look, I appreciate you. You’ve done a great job caring for douglas. But I do feel like–
Hope: Not just caring for douglas like I’m some kind of nanny. I’ve been raising him. And do you need to be reminded why? Reminded of all the things that thomas was doing?
Steffy: Thomas has changed.
Hope: I want to believe that. I do. I’ve– I’ve been trusting him. We’ve been doing a good job co-parenting together. But the way he’s been acting lately?
Steffy: Like an involved father?
Hope: Like he’s not respecting the agreement that we put into place.
Steffy: Douglas is a forrester. Not a logan. So, when it comes to where he calls home, I think it’s pretty clear.
Hope: Okay. Why do you do that? Why do you always have to make everything forrester versus logan?
Steffy: Do you really have to ask?
Hope: Yes, actually. I would love to know why.
Steffy: Because of your mom. She is the master of disaster. I mean, c’mon. If you put yourself in my shoes. You had a woman constantly throwing herself at your father? Who married every single man in your family? I think you’d have a little animosity, too. So, you’re damn right, it’s forresters versus logans. Always will be.
Taylor: Thomas is ready to play a bigger role in douglas’ life.
Brooke: I don’t care if he thinks he’s ready. It wasn’t too long ago when he was highly unstable.
Taylor: Please don’t do that, brooke. Please, he’s worked so hard. Don’t talk about my son like that.
Brooke: Don’t what? Don’t say the truth? Because it is the truth. You know what he was going through. You know better than anybody. You were his psychiatrist back then.
Taylor: Oh, my god. You are exhausting, brooke. Thomas was going through a crisis. And he got through it. He should not be punished for the rest of his life. And, or made to feel like– like he can’t take care of his own son.
Brooke: And my daughter should be made to feel that way?
Brooke: She’s the one parent who didn’t use him. Didn’t manipulate him. Didn’t treat him badly. And now you want me to have her just send douglas off with thomas? So, thomas can have him 24/7. No, no. That’s just not going to happen. And you, as the other grandmother. I would think you’d be happy.
Brooke: But you’re not.
Brooke: And I think I know why. Because there’s a lot more at play here, isn’t there?
Taylor: Oh. Okay.
Brooke: There is.
Taylor: Okay. Here comes the logan logic, right? Give it to me, brooke.
Brooke: It is so, so, obvious.
Taylor: What is it? Tell me!
Brooke: You are trying to push thomas to take douglas so that you can create some kind of conflict between ridge and me.
Taylor: Stop, stop, stop. I would never use douglas to try to manipulate a situation with ridge.
Brooke: Oh, my god.
Taylor: Okay? All right. Like you did. All right, this may come as a shock to you, brooke. But this– this whole thing with thomas and douglas is– is not about you.
Brooke: Taylor, stop it. Okay?
Taylor: I know, it’s not about you. This is about douglas being with his father.
Brooke: God. You are so transparent.
Taylor: Really? Okay. All right. You know what? Douglas belongs here, okay? And I– I’m not going to let you or hope try to come between my son and– and this happy life he’s trying to create with his child.
Brooke: And I’m not going to let you use that sweet, little, innocent boy so that you can make a play for ridge.
Taylor: Stop it, brooke. I’ve had it.
Brooke: No. I really need to talk to you.
Taylor: Don’t! Brooke. Seriously, why do you always do this? You always–
[ Brooke gasping ]
Taylor: I’m s– your face. I’m just, seriously. Oh, my god. Oh. Okay, um. Listen, I am– oh, please– all right. Well, you feel better? Is that good?
Taylor: Awesome. All right, I’M…
[ Brooke laughing ]
Taylor: Go ahead, it’s fine. I’m good. I’m– I’m not gonna come back?
Brooke: No, I don’t think you–
Taylor: Oh! Douglas. Douglas.
[ Brooke screaming ]
Taylor: Oh, my god. That felt good.
Brooke: Yeah, you didn’t just do that. Did you?
Taylor: I so did. Yeah, I did. Mm-hmm. Um, yeah. Look at you. Huh, nice.
Brooke: Just think I’ll just grab this little thing and…
Taylor: C’mon, go ahead, brooke.
Brooke: Yeah, you want it?
Taylor: Get me all over.
Brooke: You want it?
Taylor: Get me all over my shirt. Yeah, there you go. Oh–
[ Brooke laughing ]
Taylor: All right, all right.
Brooke: Okay, wait. I’m gonna put that down.
Taylor: It’s great. Um. Really awesome, I’m sure.
Taylor: That is…
Brooke: You okay?
Brooke: We’re good. We’re done doing that.
Taylor: Right there. You know what? Want some more? You need more color? Yeah, like that. Just like that.
Brooke: No, no. You’re not–
[ Brooke squealing ] Stop it.
Taylor: No, no, you stop it.
Brooke: That’s enough!
Taylor: Oh, is it enough? Is it enough? Is it enough? Is it–
Brooke: Crazy. Oh my gosh.
Taylor: Okay, okay, okay, okay.
[Laughing] Oh, my god. I was not. I was not expecting this.
Brooke: Me neither.
Brooke: Just like I wasn’t expecting you trying to steal my husband away, once again. Listen, I’m done settling. Because this is my secret.
