Steffy: It’s right here. It is so clear.
Thomas: Steffy’s right. It’s right in front of you. You have to see it.
Steffy: All you have to say is, “I love you… and I want to be with you.”
Brooke: All right. So andre’s going to have everything in the kitchen and all I have to do is light some candles and get dressed.
Hope: Okay, but you still haven’t even heard back from ridge.
Brooke: Right. No, not yet.
Hope: You texted him a while ago?
Brooke: Well, honey, he said he was in a meeting and he’ll call me when he’s finished. So by then, I’m going to have everything ready for this romantic evening!
Liam: Who’s having a romantic evening? Is it us? Say it’s us. It’s us, right?
Hope: Well, that depends how fast you get beth to sleep tonight.
Hope: No, it’s actually, uh, my mom and ridge have the plans.
Liam: Oh, that’s– that’s good. I was– uh, I was just with my dad. I got a little worried when he said that ridge caught you two together.
Hope: Wait. Bill was over here and ridge caught you?
Sheila: Grandma loves you so much. I hate being kept apart from you. Oh, my precious little grandson, you just– you were so comfortable in my arms. Is it serious?
Deacon: Were you just talking to someone in here?
Sheila: Right. Who would i be talking to by myself in here, deacon?
Deacon: Why so grumpy? Maybe it’s something worse. What’s that look in your face?
Sheila: What look?
Deacon: I don’t know. I don’t like it. I don’t like it at all.
Deacon: All right, sheila. What’s going on? What dark thoughts do you have racing around in that pretty little head of yours?
Sheila: Why do you always assume the worst of me?
Deacon: Have I been wrong? Even once?
Sheila: Yeah, well you are this time. Thinking about my grandson.
Deacon: Well, don’t do that, ’cause that doesn’t lead anywhere good.
Sheila: How can you say that? I adore that little boy and his father. They are the most important people in my life.
Deacon: And you are going to stay away from them. You understand me?
Hope: Bill was here?
Liam: Uh, my bad. My bad. I didn’t realize that you hadn’t heard that.
Brooke: He came by earlier and I wasn’t expecting him. He wanted to talk about katie. And he was about to leave when ridge came home.
Liam: My dad said it wasn’t a big deal, though.
Hope: But was it a big deal to ridge, mom?
Brooke: You know how ridge feels about bill. He wasn’t very happy.
Steffy: You deserve to feel this way all the time. You’ve been apart way too long.
Thomas: All you got to do is remember what you want. Your future could be yours. Today.
Taylor: Does it seem like we’re watching an infomercial?
Ridge: Yeah, it seems that we should be changing the channel.
Steffy: No, this is the best channel. You even said how much you love seeing finn and me together. The joy you see every time we’re with the children.
Thomas: Yeah. And that’s how we feel about you guys.
Steffy: Mom, something happens inside of you every time you look at dad. I mean, it’s the same type of electricity I get when i look at my husband.
Finn: And for what it’s worth, it’s not just your kids who see it, okay? I see it, too.
Ridge: Oh, boy.
Ridge: I’m out of here.
Finn: We lost them.
Steffy: You can’t ignore it.
Taylor: We’re not ignoring it. We’re not, are we ridge? No. Look, I know that your father loves me. I do. I do. And in some ways, everyone can see it. And in other ways, it’s just us. Like, I know what he needs.
[ Laughter ] Yeah, we have our unspoken language, I think, you know, kind of like right now. And it’s a really beautiful thing to share that with someone. Nobody can ever take that away. Cheers. Time. It’s life’s most precious commodity,
Deacon: Hey. Get the hell away from the window. What is it with you? It’s becoming, like, a full time job keeping you out of trouble.
Sheila: I don’t need a savior, deacon.
Deacon: Well, that’s a good thing, because I can’t even save myself. Take a look at me. Shacked up with a, an escaped convict.
Sheila: They’re not looking for me. Not anymore.
Deacon: Sheila. That would change in a minute if you got picked up for stalking.
Deacon: And god forbid, the forresters figure out you’re still alive, too. Because those people with their resources, they’d never stop chasing you.
Sheila: Oh, my gosh, aren’t you just a little, gray cloud today? Hmm.
Sheila: Well, maybe we should just go take a hot shower and wash away some of that doom and gloom.
Deacon: No, no, no, no, no. I see– no, I see what you’re doing. No, no. You’re not going to distract me. What is it? What? What is going on in there? What is it that you don’t want me to know? Oh. [ Laughs ] You just won’t give it up, will ya? You won’t give up this idea that somehow you’re going to be reunited with finn and your grandson.
Brooke: I explained to ridge that I was just talking with bill.
Hope: Oh. You mean in this house where, if i remember correctly, bill isn’t exactly welcome? Wow, this sounds familiar.
Liam: Yeah. The word, “boundaries” isn’t really part of my dad’s vocabulary.
Hope: And we all know how very important they are to ridge.
Liam: Hey! Ridge didn’t freak out, though, according to my dad.
Brooke: No, he didn’T. Why would he? What we were doing was innocent. I mean, bill just came by to talk about katie and he was thanking me for listening. And we said our goodbyes…
Hope: I don’t know. I really think this might be a problem with ridge.
Brooke: No, it won’t be, but…
Brooke: He– he did make it very clear how he feels about deacon or bill here in the house.
Ridge: Let me show you something.
Ridge: Come sit. This right here, this is your family. You created these monsters. Your love–
Taylor: I did–
Ridge: Created these guys.
Taylor: We did.
Taylor: Yeah. I wish I wasn’t gone for so long.
Ridge: Well, even gone, you kept us together. Kept it going for all of us. See? Distance means nothing to you.
Steffy: Well, now you’re both here getting closer. This makes you happy.
Ridge: What– I would– stop. They don’t stop.
Taylor: No, they don’T.
Ridge: I am happy. Your mom makes me happy. I agree with everything you’re saying. This is complicated. You see that, right?
Steffy: I get– I get it. I get that you… you love mom but you can’t erase your feelings for brooke. Is that what you’re saying?
Thomas: All brooke does is hurt you, dad.
Steffy: All she does is let you down–
Taylor: Okay. Just stop, please. He knows how all of us feel about his wife. And you need to stop. Both of you. Okay? It’s not fair. Just stop wishing for the end of his marriage. Okay? Sweet pillows of softness! nci test for “the talk”..” Nci test for “the talk”..” Nci test for “the talk”..” Nci test for “the talk”..” Nci test for “the talk”..” Nci test for “the talk”..” ‘S it going to take for you to give this up? Maybe a spanking.
[ Sheila laughs ] Look, I get how much you love finn? I mean, after all, you shot the guy and you took him hostage. Sort of. But that’s just you showing your feelings, right? Come on, come on, loosen up. Tell me what’s going on.
Sheila: According to you, there’s nothing to talk about, right? Just never going to get to be a part of my son’s life.
Deacon: I’m a parent. I get it. It would tear me up not to see hope, to be separated from her. But this is your reality. And it sucks and it hurts. I get it. And if you want someone to vent to, I’ll listen. I’ll give you some advice or, I don’t know, a bus ticket out of town. I’d try and help you out there, I guess. But you need to hear me very clearly. You are not going to have a relationship with finn and your grandson. Not now. Not ever.
Sheila: Never say never to me.
Hope: Here. I was thinking that once you and ridge settled back into your life that, I don’t know, he might relax a little bit.
Liam: Yeah, that’s obviously not happening now.
Brooke: He’s not being unreasonable.
Hope: Oh, my gosh. He hates bill. He hates my dad. He doesn’t want to deal with either of them.
Brooke: He knows that I respect his feelings on that.
Hope: Okay. And yet he walked in on you and bill together, and now all of a sudden, you’re planning this big, impromptu, romantic evening, so…
Brooke: Yes, of course. And why not? Ridge and i need some alone time together.
Hope: Mom. It’s okay. If you think there’s a problem, if you’re worried, you can say it.
Brooke: Oh, honey, no. I don’t think there’s a problem. It’s just tonight is, is about us. We need to reconnect and spend some time together. That’s what tonight’s all about.
Hope: And nothing else.
Liam: You know what? Maybe you guys would be more comfortable talking about this on your own–
Brooke: No, liam, it’s okay. Really. Your father’s right. What happened today was no big deal. Okay. All right. So he has been spending a lot of time lately with his other family because they found out that finn was alive and now he’s back with their daughter and they’re all so excited. They’re having these family get-togethers. And of course, ridge wants to be a part of it. I totally understand that. So. Tonight, is going to be just about ridge and me reconnecting. That is it. I’m going to make damn sure that happens.
Ridge: You are quite the mediator, doc.
Taylor: You got to be with these scavengers.
Ridge: Yeah. Never thought I’d actually miss the day when they were arguing with each other.
Taylor: Yeah. Now they argue at us.
Ridge: Relentless. But thank you for getting them off my back.
Taylor: Yeah, well, I only bought you five minutes because they are very strong-willed.
Ridge: Wonder where they got that.
Steffy: You see this?
Finn: Yeah. And they don’t seem bothered at all.
Steffy: Everything we said was right. They want to be together.
Taylor: Oh, oh. Yeah, yeah, yeah
Finn: If anyone can make them see it, it’s you. I’m gonna go check on the kids.
Finn: All right.
Thomas: First of all, thanks for the heads up. Secondly, I really thought he was going to come around tonight.
Steffy: I know. I was hoping, the way dad was talking about pulling our family together.
Thomas: It’s just, uh… one little problem: He’s still technically married to brooke. Dad’s honoring a commitment that brooke threw away long ago. Brooke’s stood in our parents way long enough. Hi, I’m nancy.
Deacon: Whether you believe it or not, I am trying to help you, sheila?
Sheila: No, you’re not. You’re not helping. You’re… you’re just telling me what I can’t do.
Deacon: Oh, and you hate that, don’t you? But hanging on to this pipe dream is just a disaster waiting to happen–
Sheila: No, because it’s not a dream. Reunions, they happen. Families do forgive one another.
Deacon: Everyone in your family thinks you’re dead. Everyone in the world thinks you’re dead. For you to stay out of prison, you need to stay dead.
Sheila: No. Not dead. I’m– ju– I’m stuck, I’M… I’m just in limbo here with you.
Deacon: Well, there’s the door, honey.
Sheila: I’m– I’m grateful for my freedom but I– I– I feel like I’m just trapped in this situation where being a part of my son and my grandson’s lives is impossible. Or is it? I don’t know–
Deacon: All right, you need to stop right there because I’m not always going to be around to be the voice of reason. I got to get out of here. I got to go meet somebody.
Deacon: Honestly, I don’t know. What I do know is that you’re going to stay here. And you’re not going to do anything crazy.
Liam: Hey. What was that for?
Hope: Do I need a reason?
Liam: No, touché. Yeah, kiss me anytime you want. No reason required.
Hope: Thank you.
Liam: For what?
Hope: Just you being you.
Liam: Are you just saying that because I’ve been giving you all this grief lately about thomas and douglas?
Hope: No. Although I do know you aren’t exactly thrilled about all the time I’ve been spending with thomas in order to be with douglas. But I was actually talking about my mom, and how concerned you were about her. I still can’t believe ridge walked in on her hugging bill in his house.
Liam: Yeah. I mean, I was concerned too, obviously, just because it’s my dad and my dad has this habit of downplaying all of his mistakes. But, you know, brooke says she’s not too worried. So yours truly is not going to be too worried. There we go.
Hope: Yeah, it’s just that it’s a lot of stress.
Liam: Yeah. Well, then, I mean, maybe there it is. Maybe a romantic evening is exactly what they need.
Hope: Yeah. I don’t know. It’s just seems like everything is trying to pull them apart. And I just, I want this night to be exactly what my mom wants it to be, which is just a night to bring them together.
Steffy: It’s like they refuse to see it.
Thomas: Mom can see it. She knows they should be together. It’s just, she’s not going to undermine his marriage.
Steffy: Maybe we should have tried harder. We could have gotten through to them.
Thomas: Yeah, okay, maybe. But I don’t know–
> Steffy: Oh, my god. Brooke’s calling.
[ Buzzing ]
Thomas: What are you–
Steffy: Hey, brooke.
Brooke: Steffy? Why are you answering ridge’s phone?
Steffy: Oh, he’s, uh– he’s busy right now.
Brooke: So you’re at the office?
Steffy: No, he’s home with me, thomas, my mom…
Brooke: Oh, uh, I– I need to talk to ridge, please.
Steffy: No, I don’t think I’m going to disturb him right now.
Brooke: I’m his wife.
Steffy: Not for long. He’s hanging out with my mom right now and they’re laughing. They’re really enjoying each other’s company. It’s– it’s sweet. You can tell how much he loves her.
Brooke: Okay, you know what? I’m not going to debate this with you. I just need my husband to come home as soon as possible.
Steffy: He is home, brooke. His real home. He belongs here. Okay. You have a good night.
Brooke: Wait, steffy. Put ridge on the phone.
[ Line beeping ]
[ Brooke gasps ]
[ Sighs ]
Thomas: Okay. That was, that was strong. But what do you plan on doing if she comes over here?
Steffy: I don’t care. Not focused on her. He’s wasted way too much time on brooke. He needs to focus his attention on mom.
Thomas: Frankly, I don’t know how we can make that any more clear–
Steffy: Just keep trying, thomas. Mom and dad are so good together. They love each other. We just got to get brooke out of the way. Once and for all.
Taylor: Oh, boy.
