Brooke: You know, I’ve been thinking, and our schedule is already pretty tight, but I’ve been talking to marco from our boutique in rome and he was suggesting that while we’re there, we should make time to see–
Ridge: Wait, I’m sorry, “our schedule and we,” what are you– what are you– what are you saying right now?
Brooke: You know I wanna go.
Ridge: Oh, you wanna tag along? Is that–
Brooke: Ridge, this is an important time for the company and also a very important moment for my daughter. So, yeah, of course I wanna be there.
Brooke: And tagging along? Give me a break. I am an important part of this company.
Ridge: I never said that you weren’T. You’re very important to the company, to me, and yeah, I’ll– but there’s not just gonna be fun and games, right? This is gonna be strictly business, not just for you and me… for hope and thomas.
Thomas: Okay. Promise to keep an open mind?
Hope: Always. Oh, thomas, you were right. It’S…
Thomas: You love it?
Hope: I do.
Liam: Thomas, thomas, thomas. One thomas, two thomas, red thomas, blue thomas. I am so– honestly, so sick of talking about thomas and thinking about thomas and worrying about thomas. I’m even sick of saying the name… tho– thomas. Thomas.
Wyatt: Oh, boy.
Wyatt: What’s– uh, what’s going on? Or I even wanna know?
Liam: What is going on? Nah, it’s all good. Everything’s great. So good. It’s, like, so good right now. It’s just, you know, he and my wife are jetting off to rome together. But it’s all good.
Brooke: So, when you say “strictly business” for hope and thomas, what does that mean exactly?
Ridge: You know exactly what it means. Thomas has been struggling for years with his feelings for hope and he’s figured it out now, right? He’s put it behind him. He’s changed his life and I’m very proud of him. And look at this, I mean, it shows in his work. All of this, it’s sophisticated, it’s elegant, it’s amazing, all of it. So, hope’s line is in very good hands. That’s all I’m saying.
Brooke: I certainly would love to believe that.
Wyatt: I’m sorry. They’re going to wha– what? Wha– oh. Wait, they’re– they’re going for the hope for the future press event, right? That they’re showcasing the new line.
Liam: Yeah, I mean, and you know how intense it gets right before a fashion preview, right? Longer nights, longer hours. Just take that intensity, put it in another country, multiply it by 1,000 and this is what you get. I mean, it’s just more time at the office, more time with thomas, and it’s all gonna crescendo with them going to italy together. It’s like, come on.
Wyatt: But, I mean, this can’t be a total surprise for you. Like, thomas is the lead designer and if hope of the future is going to rome, well, then… I mean, you had to have known that hope is gonna want thomas to go, too.
Hope: I say we put a rush on this. I mean, is there any possible way it could be ready for the preview?
Thomas: Oh, you mean, you love it that much?
Hope: I mean, I do. I mean, I think I can hear the actual audible gasps coming from the audience.
Thomas: I mean, yeah, if you’re wearing it, then they’re definitely gonna applaud.
Hope: You’re being kind.
Thomas: No, I’m not. I’m serious. It’s just honesty. I– you could wear a trash bag and they would still love it.
Hope: [ Laughing ] You know, I think you might have stumbled on our next collection.
Thomas: I think you’re right. Garb-aage chic.
Hope: Garbage chic.
Thomas: It’s gotta be garb-aage.
Hope: So wrong to admit that I– that I am human?
Brooke: And what does that mean? Hope, come on, you’ve gotta be honest here.
Hope: I– I might have– have felt a little something.
Brooke: For thomas?
Hope: Yeah, yeah. But it’s fine. Mom, it’s fine. I can handle it. I don’t know.
Thomas: All right. Maybe it’s getting weird. Maybe we just stick with regular clothing.
Hope: Wait, no, no. Or we could incorporate it into our messaging and just have it be a sustainable fashion line.
Thomas: Oh, that’s fantastic.
Hope: There we go.
Thomas: Recycled material… febreze!
Wyatt: So, you basically asked hope to exclude thomas from the whole trip, flat out?
Liam: Yeah. And she basically told me to go kick rocks.
Wyatt: Well, yeah, the lead designer does have certain privileges. I’m– I’m not trying to rile you up here. It– it– it– it’s pesky facts. What– when’s the trip? Is it– is it coming up soon or–
Liam: Yeah, it’s soon. It’s, like, really soon. It’s– there’s a lot of momentum, probably too much for me to stop anything at this point.
Wyatt: Right. Well, um… it’ll probably be fine.
Wyatt: You know? Just be positive.
Liam: Yeah? You know how traumatized I was by hope and thomas going to san francisco together, and that was in the same state, in the same country, just for the day.
Wyatt: And the day almost turned into overnight.
Liam: Yeah, exactly. And look how stressful that was. Now I gotta picture the two of them in rome, italy together?
Wyatt: Yeah. One of the most romantic cities in the world. I’m sorry, I’m sorry, that– that came out.
Wyatt: I didn’t mean that to come out.
Liam: That wa– wow. Almost impressive how unhelpful that was.
Wyatt: [ Whispering ] Wow, I’m so– I’m sorry.
Ridge: And she wants that in rome? The one from today?
Thomas: Yes. I– I– I know it’s kind of ambitious, but I think we might be able to get it done. Also, I have another one. It’s– it’s sleeveless and I know I have a lot of sleeveless options, but I honestly think it’s so powerful.
Ridge: Okay, well, maybe the best option right now is to slow down a little bit. This may not be your last fashion show.
Thomas: [ Laughing ] Okay. I’m just– I know, I’m– I’m– I’m feeling really inspired. That’s it.
Ridge: Good. I like to see you like this. Energized. Makes me happy. But it also makes me a little nervous.
Thomas: Me being inspired?
Ridge: And energized. Yes. You know why? ‘Cause the last time I saw you like that… was when you were, um, obsessed with hope.
Thomas: Uh, right.
Ridge: But that’s behind us now, right? It’s– it’s past us. Makes me happy.
Thomas: Thank you. Means a lot. Um, and I understand why you feel how you do and you’re just– might still be concerned after what steffy said to you.
Ridge: We just don’t want you to fall back on the same pattern. If there’s any reason to think that hope has feelings for you–
Thomas: There isn’T. And she doesn’T. Trust me, dad. There’s nothing to worry about with hope and me going to rome together.
Brooke: Thomas didn’t have to leave, honey. Was it something I said?
Hope: No, no, not at all. He just wanted to find ridge ’cause he’s excited about his new design. I mean, it’s so impressive, mom. And thomas has been so motivated. It’s like he can’t shut off the creativity. He just keeps going and going even though he realizes it might not even be ready in time for italy. I mean, it doesn’t even matter at this point. It’s so gorgeous. It could– it can wait ’til next season. I mean, look, see for yourself. It’s beautiful.
Brooke: Yes, indeed. I mean, he does have his father’s talent, that’s for sure. I told ridge that I might wanna be there. You know, to help out and see the preview and watch your success.
Hope: Oh, I mean, that’s great. But you don’t have to if you don’t–
Brooke: Oh, honey, I want to. I am so proud of you. I want to be there for my daughter.
Brooke: Besides, I think it would benefit you if I was there, in more ways than one. Well, I, uh… I could keep an eye on you and thomas. What’s the #1 retinol brand
Liam: I’m very aware of how romantic the city of rome, italy is. I don’t actually need you to remind me of that. So, thank you.
Wyatt: We haven’t even touched on the culinary aspect of it. I mean, who doesn’t fall in love over a nice authentic italian bowl of pasta and a great bottle of wine?
Liam: Bro, are you for real right now?
Wyatt: I’m just saying the city is vast. History is amazing and I just– I loved it there–
Liam: I’m sorry, do you understand the dynamic that, like, when I talk to you, you’re supposed to make me feel better–
Wyatt: I don’t mean to make you more upset. I don’t mean to rile you up more than you already are. Okay? I’m sorry. I am, truly. Look, I– I– I get– I get why you’re worried. Okay? You have every reason to be. I am glad that I am not in your shoes. But… maybe you could just try again? Talking to hope? Just addressing your very legitimate concerns about thomas? I mean, yeah, he’s important to the line. Great. It probably wouldn’t even be there without him. Fantastic. But who cares? Is– is it absolutely necessary for thomas to be there? Oh, I’ve got it. He can attend the event and he doesn’t even have to be there. Video conference him in, put him up on a big screen. He’ll love it. Ego and everything. People are doing it all the time. Embrace the technology.
Liam: That’s actually, like, a really good idea.
Liam: And super outside the box.
Wyatt: You’re welcome.
Liam: Hope will never go for it.
Wyatt: What? Really? She’s that dead set on him being there? Are you sure? Are you sure there is nothing else that you can do to convince hope to tell thomas he can’t go?
Ridge: You know what, thomas? The more I think about it, the more I talk to you about it, the less concerned I am about you and hope.
Ridge: Yeah. I don’t know, the idea of hope all of a sudden just falling for you and having feelings, it just seems a little silly. No offense.
Thomas: No, no, no, no, it’s none taken ’cause honestly, it– it sounds silly to me, too. I mean, hope is all about liam.
Ridge: It’s about liam, about her family, kids.
Ridge: Not like her mom. Wait.
Thomas: Okay. [ Laughing ] Yeah, you probably maybe changed the phrasing there ’cause it kind of sounds like you’re throwing brooke under the bus.
Ridge: That’s not what I meant at all. It’s just, she’s a different person. Brooke, she follows her heart.
Ridge: She also is gonna follow us to rome if that’s– is that okay?
Thomas: Yeah. Actually, that’S… no, that’s– that’s great.
Ridge: You sure?
Thomas: Yeah. No. Honestly, I think it’s– I think it’s awesome because, well, then brooke will be able to see hope and me working together as a team.
Hope: So, you want to come on this trip in order to be my chaperone?
Brooke: That’s not how I would put it.
Hope: Oh, you don’t trust me.
Brooke: No, I do trust you. I just don’t want you to make any mistakes. I mean, I am concerned.
Hope: Don’t be.
Brooke: Honey, am I supposed to just ignore the fact that you admitted to me that you have feelings for thomas?
Hope: Oh, my gosh, can we please not?
Brooke: And then, you backpedaled and you said you want to have nothing to do with him and that he’s manipulative. But then you told him something else.
Hope: Because it was a cruel thing to say. And I felt horrified that he overheard that.
Brooke: You felt horrified because I believe that you’re having growing feelings for him.
Hope: Do you know how hurtful that is? That– that you think I can’t control myself around a man that isn’t my husband?
Brooke: Honey. I just want you to be realistic.
Hope: I am. And staying true to my wedding vows, I don’t think we’re gonna have a problem there.
Brooke: Okay. I’m not judging you.
[ Hope scoffs ]
Brooke: And I’m not saying there’s going to be a problem. I am just concerned and I know better than anybody what it’s like to get involved with the inappropriate man. And I am telling you, hope. Thomas would be that man for you.
Brooke: I just don’t want you to do something that you’re going to regret.
Hope: Mom, you should trust me.
Brooke: Honey. Do you understand the danger that you’re in?
Hope: Danger? What are you talking about?
Brooke: If there’s any feelings at all between you and thomas, that could be dangerous.
Hope: Wow. Uh, mom, this is a business trip and thomas and I, we’re work partners.
Brooke: Okay. That’s exactly what I’m talking about. You work together closely, you collaborate, you create. Honey, don’t you see? He’s the designer and you’re the muse. His muse. Don’t you see? This goes all the way back to the greek and roman mythology. And now you’re going to rome, the birthplace of all of that.
Hope: Mom, you are– you’re being ridiculous right now.
Brooke: Honey, the draw between an artist and his inspiration is very strong. It’s undeniable. And you both are going to the most romantic city in the world. I don’t know what’s going to happen. I just wish thomas didn’t have to go.
Hope: Thomas is the lead designer.
Brooke: Okay, I– I understand that. And he deserves to be in the spotlight just as much as you do. I just don’t want you to let your guard down. You need to respect your marriage to liam.
Hope: You don’t need to tell me that.
Brooke: I’m speaking from experience.
Hope: Yeah. Well, I’m not you.
Brooke: Oh, okay.
Hope: I’m sorry, mom. It’s just– this is– this is… it’s like no one believes anything that is coming out of my mouth. Everything is fine. Okay? Everything is under control. Thomas and I are fine, liam and I are fine. I’m not worried, so you shouldn’t be either. All right? Now, if you just would excuse me, I have to finish editing my speech.
Brooke: I just don’t want you to make the same mistakes that I made. That’s all.
[ Door clicks closed ]
Liam: Honestly, I don’t know if– if there’s anything I can say at this point to convince hope. But you– but you– you’re right that I should try. I should– I should do everything I can to stop thomas from going to rome. Because if I don’T… I don’t know, man, I think trouble’s right around the corner.
Thomas: Having a lot of fun playing around with the colors.
Ridge: Do we have something like this?
Thomas: I think we do. Oh, yeah. Very, very close. It’s not exactly the same, but it’s, like, sapphire.
Ridge: What about here?
Brooke: Oh, hi, thomas.
Brooke: I saw your latest design. It’s very beautiful. I hope it can be ready for the preview.
Thomas: Oh, thank you. I do, toO. A preview for which I hear you might be joining us.
Brooke: Oh, yeah, I would like that very much.
Thomas: I was just telling dad what a great idea that’d be. That way you can see how great hope and i are together.
Brooke: I’m not judging you. I am just concerned and I know better than anybody what it’s like to get involved with the inappropriate man. Thomas would be that man for you. You need to respect your marriage to liam.
Hope: It’s like no one believes anything that is coming out of my mouth. Everything is fine. Okay? Everything is under control. Thomas and I are fine, liam and I are fine. I’m not worried. So, you shouldn’t be either.
Thomas: I love being in italy with you, hope. Dreams really do come true.
Hope: No. No.
