Hope: I can’t believe that you would tell liam that I have feelings for thomas. I mean, your perception of my working relationship with your brother is–
Steffy: That’s the thing. Thomas has his head on straight. He isn’t the problem.
Hope: OH. And I am?
Steffy: Well, it isn’t thomas, so that’s why I felt it was a need to protect him. All the progress he’s made.
Hope: Thomas doesn’t need protection, especially not from me. Can you just do me a favor and stay out of my business?
Ridge: So this is for me?
Taylor: Yes, it is. Burrata and pesto. Your favorite.
Ridge: That is my favorite. Why don’t you stay, eat it with me?
Taylor: Uh, well, I already ate.
Ridge: Oh, okay. So, I gotta do everything on my own. Fantastic.
Taylor: Yes. You have to do everything on your own. I just came from ii giardino with brooke.
Ridge: I see. So, you can eat with her, but you can’t eat with me.
Taylor: Well, I mean, I could, as long as it’s not a date.
Ridge: A date?
Ridge: What is a date? Really, I’ve forgotten. I’ve been in exile for so long.
Taylor: Okay. Well, a date is finishing dinner, and then getting lost in eye contact, minds racing, hearts pounding and then you… pay for dinner. That’s a date.
Steffy: I was never trying to sabotage your relationship.
Hope: Oh, well, it sure feels that way.
Steffy: Someone had to stick up for my brother.
Hope: Oh, okay. By throwing me under the bus in the process.
Steffy: That was never my intention, hope.
Hope: Of course, it was, steffy. That’s exactly what you were doing by going to liam. You knew that he would be upset, but you’re wrong, okay. You’re dead wrong. I am fully committed to my husband.
Steffy: Okay. Fine. Then, there shouldn’t be a problem then, right? Okay.
Ridge: So that almost kiss was the closest I’ve got to getting any action since you guys put me in the timeout.
Taylor: Oh, stop. Stop. There are– there are tons of women out there for you.
Ridge: Why are you trying to hand me off to another woman?
Taylor: I don’t think I would ever do that.
Ridge: Because it sounds like you’re done with me.
Taylor: I am. That doesn’t mean that I– I don’t think about you and all the wonderful times we shared.
Brooke: Hi, honey. I got your text.
Brooke: What happened? You seem upset.
Hope: Oh, yeah. Yeah. Upset doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface, so.
Brooke: What’s going on?
Hope: It was just steffy. It’s steffy. She’s up to her old tricks again.
Brooke: What did she do?
Hope: Oh, you know, just interfering in my marriage.
is the beat of life.
Ridge: You know, I’ve got a real spring in my steps and I think it’s because of you. Thank you.
Taylor: Really? Because of the pizza I brought you?
Ridge: Yeah. Yeah. Pizza. And, uh, what you said earlier.
Taylor: What did I say earlier?
Ridge: That you think about me sometimes.
Taylor: I think about you all the time. I mean, you know, I– I see you and our kids every day. I’m so proud of steffy and thomas. I’m– I’m proud of us too. You know, as– as their parents.
Ridge: Yeah, me too. I’m– I’m proud of us.
Taylor: We’re doing good. Like, we’re all doing so good. I just wish–
Ridge: You wish what?
Taylor: No, I– I don’t think I wanna–
Ridge: No, you started, so you’ll finish. What is it?
Taylor: No, no. It– just all this talk about me and brooke and our– and our friendship.
Ridge: Did something happen or?
Taylor: We had a disagreement and, uh, it just kinda opened my eyes a little. I’m not sure if brooke has been honest and transparent with me when it comes to you. You know, we have this pact. Has she broken that? Has she done anything to go against it? ‘Cause, you know, you– you’ve had dinners, you’ve– you’ve hung out. Is there anything that I should know about?
Ridge: Doc, I–
Taylor: Okay. You don’t need to say anything. I– I get it. I was right.
Ridge: No, no.
Taylor: It’s okay. No, it’s– I just wish–
Charlie: Hiya, boss.
Charlie: I, uh… oh, dr. Hayes. I’m sorry. I– I didn’t know you two were having this session.
Taylor: We’re not having a session.
Ridge: What do you need, charlie?
Charlie: Well, I heard we were going to rome, and so I got my italian phrase book and– and I got my passport renewed. And– and– and I, uh, look, I– I– I know it’s mostly for the– the hope for the future crew, but… you know, you’ve seen
the godfather. I mean, you might need me.
Ridge: I think we’ll be okay. I– I appreciate you offering, but we could really use you here. Inventory.
Charlie: Right. Okay. I’m– yeah, I’m on it.
Charlie: Oh, oh, oh. Uh, dr. Hayes, listen, I’ve been having these dreams.
Taylor: What are they about, charlie?
Ridge: Oh, no. Absolutely not. It’s all we have time for today. Thank you. I’ll see you soon.
[ Speaking italian poorly ]
Steffy: Your frog wears lipstick?
Charlie: What? Is that what I said? But wait, I gotta– I gotta fix it. I just–
Taylor: Hi, baby.
Ridge: Why would you–
Taylor: I was just– I– how is our– how is our favorite co-ceo?
Steffy: I am not great.
Ridge: Come on.
Steffy: I– I don’t– I really don’t wanna get into it. I really don’T.
Taylor: You always feel better when you talk to us.
Steffy: Hope’s upset.
Ridge: She’s upset. Why?
Steffy: You know how thomas always gets accused of being infatuated with hope? What if I told you it was the other way round? I think hope has feelings for thomas.
Brooke: I really can’t believe this. I mean, what would drive steffy to go to liam?
Hope: Mm. I don’t know. She has some nerve, though, insinuating herself into my marriage like this. I mean– actually no, no. Wait. This isn’t the first time, right? So, I shouldn’t be surprised. It’s just what she does.
Brooke: Just to be clear, steffy is mistaken.
Hope: Oh, yes. Obviously. Yes.
Brooke: Okay. Okay. I’m just trying to get things straight here. I mean, this really is very surprising.
Hope: Well, yeah. I mean, it would be– it would be one thing if she just came to me, right? And asked me these questions and brought up these concerns, but it’s another thing to go behind my back and gossip to my husband and plant seeds of doubt.
Brooke: I’m sure liam was upset.
Hope: I mean, he was blindsided. I mean, how could he not be hearing that his wife has feelings for another man, let alone thomas, after all the things that he’s done? I mean, it’s– it is ridiculous, but, um, you know, liam, I think he– he realizes that now, and– and he– he understands, but it took some persuading.
Brooke: So what do you think could have prompted steffy?
Hope: Oh, to attack me like this? Yeah. I, uh, asked her point blank, and she said that it was one particular incident in this office. Yeah. Except that’s not at all how it happened. Thomas and I were excited. The numbers were good. We got caught up in a celebratory moment, taking pride in our work. But, you know steffy. Suddenly, it becomes intimate. And thomas and I are caressing each other’s hands, and I’m gazing into his eyes and it’s just…
[ Laughing ] Just– just gimme a break.
Brooke: Uh, okay. Look, please don’t take this the wrong way, but I really have to ask again. Is there any validity to this?
Brooke: I need you to be honest with yourself and with me. Is steffy right? Have you developed feelings for thomas? Martial arts is my passion.
Taylor: I’m glad you stood up for your brother.
Steffy: Yeah, I had to. Liam kept going on and on about not being able to trust thomas when hope is the one that should be called into question.
Taylor: Yeah. Well, I mean, I understand where you’re coming from. I’m– I’m sick and tired of hearing the same messages about thomas too. That– that he’s reckless and unhinged.
Steffy: Liam has some serious reservations about hope and thomas working together and we all kind of dismissed him because we thought thomas changed.
Ridge: He has changed.
Steffy: No, you’re right. Absolutely. But maybe liam was right about some vibe between them.
Taylor: Yeah. But he didn’t realize that the vibe was actually coming from hope.
Steffy: But hope likes to say, this is all in my head.
Taylor: Of course. Yeah.
Ridge: Well, whatever it is, it’s getting a little messy.
Steffy: Look, I know hope loves liam and she doesn’t wanna lose him. I’m sure she wasn’t trying to find someone else to be attracted to, let alone liam’s worst nightmare. I was just looking out for him. I’m not trying to make trouble in their marriage.
Taylor: Of course, you’re not. You– you did the right thing. You know, you weren’t trying to be hurtful. We all know that. Whatever happens now is up to hope.
Hope: We’ve already gone over this.
Brooke: You never gave me a clear answer.
Hope: There’s nothing to worry about, okay?
Brooke: Okay, so you can say unequivocally, that you don’t have feelings for thomas.
Hope: I don’T. I– I don’t want anything from thomas more than– than to be co-parents, to be coworkers and– and to be friends. So wrong to admit that I– that I am human?
Brooke: What does that mean?
Hope: It’s– I– I have eyes. Okay, mom. So yes, I can appreciate that thomas happens to be good looking and he’s funny. And yes, we just happen to spend 10 to 14 hours working together in a day. That’s all.
Brooke: And what does that mean? Hope, come on. You’ve gotta be honest here.
Hope: I am. That’s what I’m doing here. I am being honest, okay? I– I– I might have felt a little something.
Brooke: For thomas?
Hope: Yeah. Yeah. But it’s fine, mom. It’s fine. I can handle it, okay? It’s nothing
Brooke: Oh, my god. No. No. It’s not nothing. You have to be upfront.
Hope: I am, okay? And– and– and– that’s normal, right? Isn’t that normal for people to just sometimes have thoughts and desires? And– and this is okay as long as you don’t act on them, right?
Brooke: If you’re having thoughts and desires, that could lead to something else and that would be dangerous.
Hope: But this not– that’s not for me, okay? ‘Cause I– I wouldn’t do that. I wouldn’t cross the line. I am in control of myself, okay? So, you don’t have to worry about that when it comes to me. What I just had wished was that steffy would’ve kept her big mouth shut because liam has had issues with thomas and me collaborating already and now, I have her gossiping. And it’s just… my relationship means everything to me and I’m not going to let anything or anyone, including myself, destroy that. I love liam. I love him. He’s my husband. He’s my daughter’s father. Liam is the love of my life. When you have chronic kidney disease.
Ridge: Too bad your mom had to go back to the office.
Steffy: I hope I didn’t bring the mood down when I walked in.
Ridge: What? You? Stop it. You are a ray of sunshine. Everyone’s been so happy around here. I just hope that this is not a disruption.
Steffy: Yeah, let’s hope not.
Ridge: Couldn’t come at a worst time.
Steffy: Tell me about it.
Ridge: We got previews. We got all kinds of stuff–
Steffy: Traveling to rome.
Ridge: Of course.
Steffy: Most romantic place in the world. Hope and thomas working even longer hours.
Ridge: And you think everything between them is strictly professional?
Steffy: I– I’m certain that’s the case for thomas.
Ridge: What about her?
Steffy: I wanna believe hope. That she’s not interested in thomas. I’m just not convinced.
Steffy: I’m just trying
to make sense of all of this.
Steffy: So, are you lying?
Are you attracted to thomas?
Liam: Hey, this is liam.
I can’t come to the phone
right now. I’ll call you back
as soon as I can.
Hope: Liam, hey, it’s, um, it’s me. Um, I know that things have been a bit challenging lately, but I just, uh, wanted you to know how much I love you, how much I love our life together. Um, okay. Yeah. I just wanted you to know that I was thinking about you. Okay. I will see you at the house later tonight. Bye.
Brooke: Oh, it’s okay. I’m sure dr. Hayes won’t mind.
Taylor: Hello, brooke. Gosh, I didn’t see you on my schedule.
Brooke: Have you spoken to your daughter today?
Taylor: Yes. Yes, I have.
Brooke: Well, it was kinda strange the things that she said to liam, to hope’s husband.
Taylor: Okay. Well, she was just defending her brother. He’s worked very hard to get to where he is right now.
Brooke: Okay. So, that’s all that it was. There’s no other motivation.
Taylor: What other motivation could there be?
Brooke: I don’t know. Steffy knows that it’s a very volatile situation. Thomas and hope working together. She knows that liam doesn’t like it, that he’s very uncomfortable with it.
Taylor: I– I think that steffy was just being a protective little sister. That’s all.
Brooke: Really? Okay. She was pointing fingers and she was getting liam to not trust his wife. It seemed like she was actually trying to tear apart their marriage.
Taylor: Okay. That’s enough. Steffy wouldn’t do that. I don’t know– that– that is just unfair what you’re saying.
Brooke: Doesn’t matter anyway because hope would never cheat on liam.
Taylor: Oh, okay. Oh, no one was saying that she would.
Brooke: We’re friends, right, taylor?
Brooke: Are we? Because I know we worked really hard on this friendship. We worked really hard to get where we are and right now, I am asking you to step up as a friend and help me. Go to your daughter, insist that she take back every word that she said to liam because that wasn’t fair. My daughter has a family. A family that she loves very much and I sure as hell, I’m not gonna let your daughter step in between hope and liam.
