Hope: Look, I’m still upset with thomas. I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to trust him again.
Steffy: Not personally. But would you be able to trust him with your line?
Hope: Well maybe I have to. You know, maybe hope for the future does need him.
[ Elevator dinging ]
Steffy: What are you suggesting? Have you actually thought this through? Could you really work with thomas again?
Sheila: Finn! Sweetheart, hi!
Finn: Don’t with the “hey sweetheart”. All right, that is not what we’re doing here. Ever.
Sheila: It’s just really good to see, you.
Finn: I wish I could say the same. But who knows? Maybe someday.
Sheila: Okay, really?
Finn: Sure. The day I see you behind bars.
Sheila: I love you so much, bill. I’m yours for life.
[ Door unlatching ]
Katie: The guard said you were up here alone. Does that mean you’ve kicked sheila out? Suppose that was too much to hope for. I’m here because I care about you, bill. And I’m worried about you. More worried than I’ve ever been.
Paris: Back so soon?
Thomas: Yeah, I didn’t want to get caught listening in.
Paris: Any news? Are they letting you design again?
Thomas: It’s too soon to say, but I think there might be a chance.
Thomas: I mean, I can feel it. I think I might actually be back on hope for the future. Possibly as soon as today.
Steffy: You’re worried about your line. Frankly, I am too. But is it worth lobbying for thomas to return?
Hope: That’s not what I’m doing. I– I’m just trying to look at all the options, not only for the good of my line, but also for the company. Now, if we were to consider letting thomas work remotely so he didn’t have to come on site–
Steffy: On site or not, think about everything thomas has done.
Hope: No, I know, I just– I’m thinking out loud.
Steffy: Look, hope for the future is important to you. But is it worth compromising your values? Because forcing yourself to work with thomas? That’s exactly what it feels like you’d be doing.
Sheila: All right. That was hard for me to hear. But I understand it. Does it upset you to run into me here?
Finn: No, this was no accident. Sheila, I knew you were here. I got word from a friend who spotted you. I dropped what I was doing and I rushed right over.
Sheila: To come see your mother.
Finn: No, to tell you, in no uncertain terms, that you will never have anything to do with me and my family.
Bill: You don’t have to worry about me.
Katie: Well, I must admit it’s a new feeling for me. Being worried about you. I’ve never felt that way before. You’ve always been so self-assured, so… in control of every situation, at least that’s how it appeared. But now, you and sheila. I’m frightened for you, bill. I’m frightened for our son and I am here to do whatever it takes to get through to you. To save you from this unhealthy, dangerous situation. Some people are born to hustle.
Paris: So this could really be happening.
Paris: Well, I know how much this means to you and I know how sorry you are for what you did. And, come on, there is no line without your designs. Hope’s vision can only go so far and she clearly knows that or she wouldn’t be considering putting you back on.
Thomas: I like the way you think.
Charlie: You are not supposed to be in the building, thomas. Orders from the head honcho.
Thomas: Uh, orders changed. Steffy’s actually–
Charlie: Not that head honcho, the other head honcho. Your father. And until I hear otherwise, you’re not welcome.
Thomas: My name is on the side of the building. I think that gives me certain rights–
Charlie: You know, your name might be on the side of the building, but if you don’t do what I say, your name is gonna be on an orange jumpsuit, mr. Forrester. Now am-scray. Pronto.
Steffy: Think about it. My dad and your mom aren’t together because of what thomas did. He framed brooke. Made it seem that like she called cps on him. You’re thinking that is someone you might want to work with again? Okay, let’s say– let’s say thomas does come back and hope for the future is a huge success. Are you honestly gonna feel good about that?
Hope: You do have a point there.
Steffy: Have you talked to your mom about this? Liam? I mean, we both know how he feels about thomas. Think about what this could do to your marriage.
Hope: No, you’re right. You’re right. I– I can’t believe I was even contemplating this. I mean, I– I can’t, I can’t do that. I can’t work with him. Thank you. Thank you, seriously. And, um, I apologize.
Steffy: For what?
Hope: For just… I don’t know, taking up your time with– with all of my concerns about my line when I know you have much, much bigger things on your plate. I mean, what thomas did, his lies and manipulations, I mean that kind of pales in comparison to the threat of sheila.
Sheila: We have an opportunity here for a second chance thanks to bill spencer, so, please, let’s not waste it.
Finn: A second chance?
Sheila: To start over.
Finn: I don’t want to see you. I don’t want to know you’re alive. You just stay away from me, my wife, and our children. Just stay the hell away. =
Bill: You call it unhealthy, dangerous, but you don’t see when it’s just the two of us. The attention she gives me, the affection.
Katie: What I see is a man standing in front of me who is unrecognizable. You’ve been hurt. You feel rejected. I… I understand that. I know what it’s like to feel lonely, maybe better than anyone. But what I don’t understand, what I don’t get is why you can’t see that you’re being played? You are dollar bill spencer and you’re believing all of sheila’s lies.
Bill: What lies has she told? I know all of her sins and she knows mine.
Katie: This is not you, bill. The bill I know, the man I admire, would realize what she’s doing. He would never allow himself to fall for this con. But you don’t see it. And I don’t understand why. Why can’t you see that sheila carter is playing you?
Introducing astepro allergy.
Charlie: One of us isn’t listening and it’s you. You need to go.
Thomas: Right, I’m just waiting on word from–
Charlie: You want me to call back up? I don’t think you want that because ruth is on duty today and ruth is a rottweiler.
Thomas: Uh, charlie, I– I– just let this slide this one time, okay? Steffy is literally about–
Charlie: I got a situation on the executive floor. I’ve got a combatant that is unwilling to leave–
Thomas: Okay, all right, fine, fine, fine. I get it. I’ll leave, I’ll leave. This is ridiculous though.
Charlie: You know, um, following the rules is never ridiculous, my friend.
Thomas: I didn’t want to tell you this, but actually this is a code 519-B. It’s
[ French accent ] “Top secret,” course is french for “top secret”. Shh. Don’t say anything.
Charlie: That’s not a 519-B.
Steffy: Well, there’s one nice thing we can say about thomas. At least he isn’t as bad as sheila.
Hope: I still can’t believe that she’s free, that a judge would let a woman like that go. How are you feeling about all this? Knowing that she was out there somewhere and that your mom is being blackmailed?
Steffy: Can’t say it’s easy. My mother’s future is at stake. Her freedom. It’s all in sheila and bill’s hands.
Sheila: As much as I wish you had more of an open mind about me and what our relationship could be, I– I understand why you’re hesitant.
Finn: I am not being hesitant, sheila. I’m telling you no. It will never happen.
Sheila: We’ll have to see, won’t we? See, you are my son and I am not gonna give up on you. I never give up. With the right amount of patience and confidence, I can accomplish anything that I put my mind to.
Katie: Sheila doesn’t know how to love. Her heart is a cold, dark place.
Bill: Maybe mine is, too.
Katie: No. No way. You can’t say that to me because I have felt your love. I’ve witnessed it. You can’t sell me that. This is not you. This is not who you are. You’ve been hurt. I hurt you. But for you to turn to a fugitive?
[ Katie sighing ] I’m so sorry if my rejection played any part in this. I’m so sorry. I just never dreamed that you would– I hurt you and I will regret it for the rest of my life. I’m so, so sorry. I have moderate to severe crohn’s disease.
Steffy: You have no idea the nightmare it is being at sheila’s mercy. Sheila’s just walking around. She’s a threat to everyone, but especially my family.
Hope: I– I can only imagine. Having your mother’s freedom in her hands and bill’s?
Steffy: I don’t even know bill anymore. He seems like a completely different person.
Hope: I know. Liam is really worried about him.
Steffy: I don’t want to believe that sheila completely corrupted him. I have to hold on to hope that somehow, some way, someone, is gonna get through to him.
Katie: What does this look like going forward? What’s your plan? How do you envision this future with– with a woman who has tried to kill so many people you care about? I mean, are– are we just gonna invite her to family functions? We’re gonna sit around the thanksgiving table and– and break bread with her? Wh– what happens when– when will gets married? Are you gonna show up at his wedding with this murderer on your arm? How do we explain this to our son?
Bill: “Your father found someone. Someone who cares about him.”
Katie: Someone he will never, ever meet. You know that right? I cannot allow will to be around you if you are with sheila. And that’s not a threat, that’s just a fact. I will protect my son. And I don’t want to keep him away from you, bill. I love the bond that you have. I– I know you love all of your boys, but… but will. Will is yours. You raised him and he loves you so much. And the relationship you have with him, it’s– it’s special and unique and it makes me so happy. I don’t want you to feel attacked, okay? This is not– this is not me attacking you. I know that– that that’s the way you felt since this whole thing started. And you don’t need that anymore. What you need, what you need to hear is that you have people in your life who love you and who care about you. Like me. Please don’t do this. Please, please don’t bring this woman into our lives. Don’t let her anywhere near our son.
Bill: What do you mean, our lives? You turned your back on me, katie. We made a pledge. A pledge that we would raise our son together. That’s what I wanted for us.
Katie: You wanted brooke. That was the problem. I hurt you. And you hurt me. We’ve hurt each other over and over again. I– maybe too many times. But this– this is beyond hurt. This is– this is despair. Knowing that you’re with sheila, it– it’s killing me.
Bill: I’m sorry, katie. I’m sorry for everything I’ve done. For all the times I hurt you. You were right and I was wrong. But does it have to mean the end of us forever? You, me, and will?
Katie: If you’re with sheila, then yes. It is the end of our family. But if she were to go back to prison–
Bill: What are you saying? That you would take me back? If sheila goes to prison, that you would forgive me? That our family could be one again?
