Brooke: I– I still haven’t forgotten what you said the other night, hope. How you won’t ruin your marriage with liam. You won’t be drawn to the bad boy like I was. Honey, I can see that you’re struggling with something.

[ Brooke sighing ] Look, it’s really hard for me to imagine, but tell me, do you have feelings for thomas?

Taylor: So, is that a yes?

Ridge: To what? A family dinner with all my favorites? Yeah, of course.

Taylor: It’s actually a family dinner with all our grandkids favorites, so.

Ridge: What’s the difference? They like mac and cheese. I love mac and cheese. They hate kale. I hate kale. It’s the same thing.

Taylor: That’s because you’re a big kid yourself.

Thomas: Who is? Me? Dad?

[ Taylor laughs ]

Ridge: Yeah. Your mom’s giving me a hard time.

Taylor: Oh, no. I’m not. I’m just trying to plan a family dinner. And you know how hard it is for your dad to commit.

Ridge: Well, it’s gonna be a day like that. Okay. No, I am committed. I even helped you with the menu.

Thomas: Mac and cheese?

Ridge: Yeah, mac and cheese. He gets it.

Thomas: Yeah. I love this. Seeing you guys like this together and enjoying each other’s company. And don’t worry, I’m not gonna go too far on this. I’m not gonna try and play matchmaker again.

Ridge: That’s– that’s a good idea because she’s in the committed relationship already.

Thomas: Really? With who?

Ridge: Brooke.

Taylor: Oh, my god. Okay. All right. You guys both know that brooke and I are friends and we’re very serious about it, okay? We even made an oath. Friendship first.

[ Taylor chuckling ]

Thomas: Well, I, for one, think this whole friend’s first thing is great, but you’re not gonna like start calling her logan too, are you?

Taylor: What? I mean, she just started calling me doc, so. Oh.

[ Laughs ] Oh, my gosh. No laughs at all. Okay, fine. You know what? I think it’s kinda funny. All right, fine. You know what? Brooke and i have a new understanding. You guys just need to accept that. It’s based on transparency and trust.

Thomas: That’s great. I mean, how– how do you feel about that, dad?

Ridge: I’m so happy. This– look, after years of being rivals, it’s just amazing that they found each other. I just didn’t think it through. I didn’t think I was gonna get tossed to the side like that.

Taylor: Oh, karma’s a bitch. Oh. [ Laughs ]

Ridge: Just I’m not the be all and the end all. Not now anyway.

Taylor: Oh, my gosh.

Thomas: Oh, that– it looks like him not the be all, end all, it’s– hell may have frozen over.

Ridge: Yeah. Well, that’s– few months you leave and come back and you find this. I don’t know.

Taylor: Yeah. Well, welcome home to friendship first. You know, this frees me up. It really does. Now, I get to just smother my grandkids with love and affection. I’m gonna be a grand-smother. See? You’re not laughing at that either. I’m gonna do the same thing with you and steffy. I’m gonna smother you, okay? Yep. I am. And I’m sure that brooke is gonna do the same thing with hope.

Hope: Mom, what are you talking about?

Brooke: I’m asking you a question and not an easy one at that.

[ Phone chimes ] Is that thomas?

Hope: What? No.

Brooke: Well, then who is it?

Hope: Mom, seriously?

Brooke: If it’s thomas–

Hope: It’s not thomas. But even if it was, we work together. I mean, we’re trying to resuscitate my line. That means long hours and needing to talk to each other.

Brooke: Honey, I’m well aware of that, but I get the feeling that the things that you were saying to me the other night had more to do about you than about me. Plus, when I walked in here just a bit ago, the way you and thomas were communicating just seemed–

Hope: Seemed like what?

Brooke: Oh, honey, come on. You admitted to me that you find thomas attractive. I’m your mother. There’s nothing you can’t say to me. So, are there feelings on your part for thomas?

Thomas: So, how exactly is this whole smothering steff and me thing gonna work?

Ridge: You know what, I’d like to hear that too because these are two grown people.

Taylor: Oh, okay. Okay, okay. I know that smothering sounds a little intense and look, I know that– that you and steffy are adults and you have children of your own, but I have– I have some time to make up for.

Thomas: Time to make up for you being away? That wasn’t your fault.

Taylor: I know, but you know, I’ve been gone since then too. My work in africa–

Ridge: Your extremely important work in africa.

Thomas: Dad’s right. Look, you didn’t just frivolously travel around the globe. You were over there doing incredible work, helping save people’s lives. That’s something that steffy and I will always be proud of you for.

Taylor: Thank you, thomas. I love you.

Thomas: I love you too. I mean, you’re such an accomplished person. You– you really– you’re really incredible, honestly and– and I think all of us just respect you so much.

Ridge: Plus, you are easy on the eyes, so.

Taylor: Oh, god.

Ridge: What?

Thomas: Well, you are– you’re– you’re beautiful.

Ridge: See?

Thomas: Not just on the outside, on the inside too. And honestly, mom, you truly are an inspiration.

Taylor: Thank you. Are you trying to make me cry right now because I–

Thomas: Sorry.

[ Taylor laughs ]

Thomas: But I am kind of, ’cause I have one more thing to say. Um, you were talking about how– how you maybe weren’t always around, but we never– we never doubted your love for us. We always knew what you were doing was really important.

Thomas: And so I just, I need you to remember that we always have and will love and appreciate you.

Ridge: Well, they’re not the only ones that appreciate you. I know who you are. I see you. You were there when these guys were kids and they needed you. They needed a mom, they needed love. Needed a house. You were there when I was nowhere to be found and for that, I will always respect and admire you every minute of every day.

Brooke: You can trust me, honey. If anybody understands getting drawn into the bad boy, the inappropriate man, it would be me.

Hope: Why do you think that is?

Brooke: Why did I do it over and over again, you mean?

Hope: I mean, I’m curious. I’d like to know. I mean, I know things can get complicated, but if you knew you were playing with fire–

Brooke: How could I not get burned, right?

Hope: Exactly. I mean, why risk so much for men that you knew were all wrong for you?

[ Brooke sighing ]

Brooke: I’ve been asking myself that for years. Maybe I felt that I just needed more excitement in my life. Or maybe I was just self-sabotaging, which happened a lot. But you, honey, you are in an incredible marriage with a wonderful man.

Hope: I know.

Brooke: And liam is everything you’ve always wanted.

Hope: I know that too.

Brooke: So now, you’re telling me at this point in your marriage, you might possibly be having feelings for thomas?

Hope: What? I never said that.

Brooke: I know, I’m just trying to figure this out. You and I used to be able to talk about everything, but now, every time I bring up thomas, this is how you act. Honey, I just want you to know that I am here for you.

Hope: Mom, I know you always have my best interest at heart.

Brooke: Yes. Always.

Hope: Okay. So just believe me when I tell you that I do not have feelings for thomas, at least not in the way that you’re implying. Do I care about thomas? Yes, of course. He is douglas’s father and he’s an important part of my son’s life.

Brooke: And yours? (Vo) red lobster presents fun dining:

Taylor: Oh, my gosh.

Thomas: You know, we actually don’t tell you often enough what– what a great mother and grandmother you have always been. And I– I think we should do it more often. Right, dad?

Ridge: Yes. I got it. Taylor hayes appreciation day. All right. We just pamper her once a month.

Thomas: Great idea.

Taylor: You know what, I am– I am totally, totally down for that, but somebody has already beaten you to the pampering.

Thomas: Who?

Taylor: Kelly. She wanted to make something special for her grandma. So, she made me this.

Ridge: Oh, kelly gave you that. I thought you and brooke had matching bracelets.

Taylor: Oh, my god.

Thomas: Okay. That can get a little weird. You– you– you two can have matching bracelets, but please don’t match her giggle ’cause that might get weird.

Taylor: Okay. Well, you know, forget about the giggle. I’m– I’m working on the jiggle. It’s never gonna happen though, ’cause–

Thomas: My mother.

[ Taylor laughing ]

Taylor: You know what? I have a new appreciation for brooke. I really do. You know, even that she was there for you and your sisters in any capacity when I was gone.

Thomas: Okay. But you– we– we were never offended when you were gone. I mean, like, you– having you back, that’s what’s most important. You’re– you’re the family’s moral compass. You know, you’re our heart.

Ridge: You know, he is right. This family’s not the same when you’re not here. So, when you came back, just lifted everybody’s spirits.

Taylor: Thank you. Thank you. I’m– I’m glad to be here. I’m– I’m so happy. I– I– I get to see steffy thriving with her family and– and you and douglas are close again and that makes me so happy. And, you know, I– I get to be here with my– with my best friend.

Ridge: Me? Your best friend?

Taylor: Mm-hmm.

Ridge: You can’t have more than one. You have a bff already. You got brooke.

Taylor: Okay. My other best friend.

Ridge: Oh, well, okay. My best friend or not, I’M… I’m glad you’re here where you belong.

Brooke: I don’t mean to make you defensive.

Hope: I’m not.

Brooke: Are you sure?

Hope: Yes.

Brooke: Okay. It’s just the other night, the way you were talking to me and looking at me wasn’t like you, hope. And I don’t mean to blame you or make you feel bad or anything. I’m just concerned about you and liam and your precious little family. Look, I know there’s been a lot of stress going on lately. Everything with sheila, and your line having some problems. And I know it’s not just merely a job to you. You put your whole self into your line and you wanna make an impact on the world. And for that, I– I’m so amazed. I– I’m in awe of you. Really, sweetie. And I can understand why you wanna work with thomas. He’s great at what he does. He’s very talented. It’s just thinking of you guys working together all day and then sometimes into the night, I know it’s putting a bit of a strain on liam and I don’t want it to hurt your relationship.

Hope: Mom, we’re working through things. And like I– I told you, I mean, we had a beautiful night together the other night.

Brooke: Yeah. Until you came up to my house and gave me a piece of your mind.

Hope: Mom, I appreciate your concern, but really you have nothing to worry about. But thomas and me, we just– we share the same passion for my line and– and the same vision for hope for the future. I mean, that is what our relationship is. It’s about work. That is all. The abcs of ckd

Taylor: Okay. Okay. Enough about me. All right. I’m gonna tell you a little secret. I– I love compliments, but I also hate them. Hope that helps.

Thomas: Okay. You don’t have to get embarrassed. All right? You deserve all the praise.

Ridge: And more.

Taylor: Oh, thank you, thank you, but can we focus on this guy? Can we focus on our kid and– and all the work that he’s doing? All the work that you continue to do. Thomas, I– I feel the changes in you.

Ridge: I feel them too. Very proud of you, son.

Thomas: Okay. Now, it’s time for me to be embarrassed. Um, no, honestly, like, your love and your support from both of you, that’s– it means the world to me because there’s a time where I was exiled from the family, from the company, and– and that was the most excruciating time in my life. And now, I get to be in my son’s life again and I get to be around you guys and I get to come to work and– and design, my passion. And– and the designs, honestly, they keep pouring out. Actually, this morning, I– I woke up at dawn and I made this one right here. I was actually, I was– I was gonna surprise hope with it. What do you think?

Ridge: What do I think? I– I think you’re brimming with talent.

Taylor: Ah, gosh, thomas. It’s– it’s– it’s beautiful.

Thomas: That’s good. That’s good. Thank you. My focus right now is just doing the best I can for hope for the future and, you know, winning back hope’s trust and her respect obviously. We– we do a great job working together and we’re also a great co-parents. I’m just glad that our relationship’s finally in a better place.

Hope: I don’t know what else I can say to convince you. I mean, is it because you think I’m projecting or whatever? Look, mom, I said a lot of hurtful things that were uncalled for and– and I do apologize.

Brooke: I appreciate you saying that, honey. Yes, some of those things were very hurtful. Not that I haven’t admitted the mistakes I’ve made in my life, especially with men, but that is why I appreciate you so much. The way you conduct your life, your morals, your principles, your commitment to liam. You don’t do anything scandalous. You’re never in the tabloids. You don’t sabotage your marriage by following your own deep inner desires. I just worry, honey, that’s all. I know that working with thomas has caused a bit of a strain in your marriage and I don’t wanna see anything happen between you, liam, and your kids.

Hope: Mom, I won’t let that happen. I love liam. I love my family and– I mean, we’ve overcome so many obstacles, so many challenges to get to where we are. I will not let anyone derail that. Okay, mom? I– I won’t allow it.

Brooke: Okay. Yeah. I’m glad to hear that.

Hope: Yeah.

Brooke: I love you so much.

Hope: I love you. I’m sorry.
