Thomas: I love being in italy with you, hope. Dreams really do come true.
Liam: You look beautiful.
Hope: Oh, hey. Uh, thanks.
Liam: Are you, uh– you all packed?
Hope: Yeah, pretty much. Are the kids ready?
Liam: Yeah. Um, they kindly request a souvenir from rome, each.
Hope: Hmm. I’ll make sure to bring back something really special for them.
Liam: Yeah. We’re gonna miss you.
Hope: I’m gonna miss you too. So, that means you better have your phone on, because I will be calling you constantly.
Liam: I’m excited for you. This– this fashion preview, I think it’s gonna go great. I think– I think the press is gonna love every single dress. I really do.
Hope: Fingers crossed.
Liam: Yeah. I mean, come on, like, there was no question that the business part of it is just gonna– it’s gonna be amazing. It’s– it’s just, you know, that other noise, that’s–
Liam: You know, I don’t– what do you want me to say? That I’m– I’m not still concerned about thomas going to rome with you?
Ridge: There you go. That voice isn’t getting any better, is it?
Taylor: No, it still sounds like I swallowed a goose.
Ridge: I like you quiet. It’s nice.
Taylor: Okay, do you have your passport?
Ridge: Yes. I do.
Taylor: [ Laughing ] Yes. Okay, good. Oh, my gosh, I’m gonna miss you guys so much. Me, of course, I would love to be with you in rome, but I– I get that this is a business trip.
Thomas: Ah, kind of stinks that you’re not going. Um, I’m gonna miss you, and I know you’re gonna be rooting me on.
Taylor: I am.
Thomas: Oh, oh, no. Oh, no.
[ Thomas laughs ]
Taylor: You know who– who isn’t gonna miss me on this trip? Brooke.
Katie: So, you called out taylor for breaking your girl code, and she’s trying to flip it around on you?
Donna: But she– she deliberately tried to set you up with deacon and hollis.
Katie: So that you’d be distracted when she was making moves on a ridge.
Donna: But that– that’s just so messed up.
Brooke: Well, needless to say our pact is broken. But I did get some clarity from it. I realized that deep in my heart, ridge is the love of my life.
Donna: Well, we could have told you that.
Brooke: Yes, yes.
Katie: But if that’s really what you want, then that’s what will happen. You and ridge will be together.
Donna: And maybe, even sooner than you think.
[ Donna laughing ]
Brooke: Oh, okay. [ Laughs ]
Donna: So, where do you and ridge stand as of now?
Brooke: Well, he’s– he’s being cautious. You know, he’s being protective of himself and his heart, since taylor and i did banish him.
Katie: That break had to happen. You had to end that cycle. You, taylor, you, taylor.
Donna: Yeah, it wasn’t healthy or fair to either one of you.
Brooke: I know that, and ridge knows that. He totally understands. It’s just he’s questioning things. I mean, he’s not even calling me his logan. It’s almost like he’s guarding me and him against any future pain or heartache.
Ridge: You know, brooke has been here almost as long as I am.
Taylor: Yes. I know. I know. She’s an important part of forrester creations. Yeah, she deserves to be going. But you know, the– the timing isn’t in my favor, really. But you know, this isn’t about me. This is about you and all the success that you and hope are gonna have in rome.
Thomas: Well, the line’s solid. And hope and i are going to kill it. And I think these new designs are going to surprise everybody.
Hope: Liam, you know, thomas is my lead designer.
Liam: No, I know, but it’s your baby. It’s your name on the billboard. The whole– this whole trip is about you.
Hope: Liam, if– if you’re this concerned, I mean– I don’t know, maybe– maybe, you should just come.
Hope: Come with us to rome. You know that feeling of having to rewash I’m not buying that.
Donna: You must feel so disappointed.
Brooke: Taylor claimed she meant no harm.
Katie: Oh, please. I’m not buying that. I mean, it’s obvious that she was trying to set you up with somebody other than ridge.
Brooke: Yeah, she set me up all right.
Donna: I’m sorry, brooke. But you know what? At least now you know who taylor really is.
Katie: Yeah, and now, you can be together with ridge. There’s nothing holding you back.
Brooke: Yeah. It’s just, uh– it just feels different. Ridge has put up a wall between us, and uh, he’s deliberately not calling me logan. He says, “brooke.” Says, “hi, brooke.” “How are you, brooke?”
Katie: Oh, my god. Stop that.
Donna: Stop that.
Brooke: Brooke, brooke.
Brooke: I know. It’s weird.
Donna: It sounds so weird coming from ridge.
Brooke: It is, I’ve never heard him say that.
Katie: It sounds like you think he’s given up on love. Is that true?
Brooke: He did say that he has given up on destiny. That he doesn’t believe in that anymore.
Katie: Well, maybe, this trip will change things. Rome is a magical city.
Carter: You’re right about that. But it won’t be magic for me without you by my side.
[ Brooke laughing ] So cute.
Steffy: All right, katie arranged for us to bring some vip swag.
Ridge: Great. I’ll make sure that ends up in the car. I got to pick up my suit from alterations. I’ll be right back.
Taylor: Yes, you do.
Steffy: Hey, mom?
Steffy: This is it.
Taylor: I know. I know. Oh, my gosh, I love you.
Steffy: I love you. I’ll call you when we land.
Taylor: Yes, please do.
Steffy: I love you.
Taylor: I love you too. You’re gonna kill this.
Steffy: Yes, we are.
Thomas: See you over there.
Taylor: Bye! And you. Oh, my gosh, you are– you are getting it done.
Thomas: I’m getting it done.
Taylor: You are. And– and I think this trip is going to be just the first in– in many successes in your career.
Thomas: This isn’t just about me. You’re a part of this too. I mean, you were woven into every fiber of everything I create.
Taylor: Oh, honey. You know, you are doing so much work. So much hard work and… it’s a lifetime journey to commit to healing the way that you are, but you’re doing it.
Thomas: I know. I am. And I promise that I’m gonna keep working just as hard as I have, right? And um, like this trip, obviously, nothing is gonna happen with hope and me.
Taylor: I am not worried about you, okay? That’s all I’m gonna say.
Taylor: But I’ll also say that… I am so proud of you. And I’m really looking forward to everything, and all of the good news and all the amazing stuff that you’re gonna tell me.
Thomas: Thanks, mom.
Liam: You want me to come to rome?
Hope: You’re my husband. Is it really that much of a mystery why I would want you there? I mean, do I really need a reason?
Liam: You don’t have to do this. I– I don’t need to– I don’t want to be your chaperone.
Hope: No, that’s not what I meant.
Liam: Hope I– I want you to enjoy yourself over there. I want you to bask in the– in the applause and accolades, and I’m gonna be cheering for you from here in spirit, but you don’t need thomas there and it’s not too late. There are so many ways that you could pull him from this trip.
Carter: I had to get one
Carter: I had to get one last look before I left.
Katie: Are you excited?
Carter: About the trip? Yes. About leaving you? No.
Katie: Well, trust me. If it were up to me, I would take you back to my place and I would lock you in the bedroom and I wouldn’t let you go.
Carter: That is not a terrible idea.
[ Both chuckling ]
Katie: I might get in trouble with some of the higher ups.
Carter: I don’t know. I think I know a guy.
[ Katie chuckling ]
Katie: Seriously. I’m so excited that you’re getting this opportunity, but… I’ll miss you.
Carter: I’m gonna miss you too.
[ Both chuckling ]
Donna: Toss a coin in the trevi fountain from me, okay?
Brooke: Oh, I will. I’ll make an extra wish for you.
Donna: Yeah? And have a fun trip. You know, I have a feeling that rome is gonna change everything for ridge. And his logan.
Brooke: [ Laughing ] Okay.
Donna: You’ll see.
[ Brooke laughing ]
Brooke: Uh, all right.
Donna: Ciao, bella!
Ridge: Oh, hey. Hey. Hi. Nice to have a moment alone.
Taylor: Yeah. You know, I am so– so happy for thomas.
Ridge: I am too.
Taylor: Look what he is doing, what he’s done, the changes he’s made.
Ridge: You’re responsible for most of that.
Taylor: I can’t take all the credit, but thank you. Yeah, I don’t– I don’t want you to lose faith in me. And I know it’s tricky right now with all the– the brooke drama.
Ridge: Let’s not get into that again.
Taylor: Okay, first of all, we haven’t gotten into it at all. We haven’t talked about it. But I will say this, I– I pulled a fast one on you the other day and I– I– I wasn’t trying to–
Ridge: I know you weren’T. And look, I’m– brooke will come around, eventually.
Taylor: I don’t think that she will ever own her part of this whole situation. She’s going to continue a smear campaign on me while you’re in italy. I know– I know that. But just remember the source. That’s all I ask.
[ Taylor chuckling ] Because– oh, damn it, I love you. And I will always love you. I mean, if you weren’t so devastatingly handsome–
Ridge: I know, it’s a lot.
Taylor: Incredibly charming. All of this.
Ridge: How does he do it?
Taylor: I don’t know. And it makes you a– a hard man to shake, ridge forrester.
Hope: I can’t force thomas not to go.
Liam: Literally, everyone would understand, given the history.
Hope: Not in the 11th hour now. Not when the– the schedule has been set. The invites have gone out, the press release. I mean, this– it– plans have been solidified.
Liam: It wasn’t the 11th hour the first time I asked, and plans can absolutely change. It’s not the end of the world if thomas doesn’t go. What matters is that all these people are there to see you because it’s your line, right? You’re the face of it. You– you understand that, don’t you?
Hope: I do.
Liam: Okay, so, please, please? Because you’re– you’re all staying together, and I’m telling you, hope, it just… doesn’t feel right.
[ Relaxing music ]
Hope: I– I have to get to the airport. I’m holding people up.
Liam: I know. I know. But please, can we just like, wrap this up before that? Because the jet will wait for you.
Hope: Liam, I know what you’re asking me to do and I’m telling you I can’T. I can’t tell thomas not to come.
Liam: That’s not true. It is not absolutely necessary for thomas to physically be there in person.
Hope: I am already stressed enough as it is.
Hope: Having to leave you, having to leave the kids…
Liam: I know, I know and I’m sorry.
Hope: …Trying to make everybody happy.
Liam: I get it. I’m sorry about that.
Hope: If you don’t want to come, then you’re going to have to find a way to accept the fact that thomas is going to be there. He’s the lead designer of the hope for the future line. That is it. It is just a business trip. Nothing more.
Hope: Okay, um… really didn’t want to leave like this. I love you and um, I do have to get to the airport. So, I’m just gonna go. Um, and yeah, I’ll see you when I get back.
Brooke: Away we go.
Pilot: Welcome aboard.
Ridge: Well, we got half a group anyway, right?
Steffy: We’re just waiting on hope and thomas.
Pilot: Not a problem. Not a problem.
Carter: Thank you.
Brooke: This is exciting, isn’t it?
Brooke: Tomorrow, we’re gonna wake up in glorious rome.
[ Carter chuckling ]
Carter: We have an amazing local crew in place. You know, the catering, the– the permits, all set, you name it, it’s done.
Ridge: I’m so glad you were born, carter.
Steffy: Most organized man on the planet.
Ridge: Yes, he is. And on time, unlike your brother.
Brooke: I just uh, texted hope and she hasn’t gotten back to me.
Steffy: I wonder where hope and thomas could be.
Liam: Hey! What the hell is going on here?
Steffy: I’m sorry, liam. I don’t want to hurt you, but I think your wife has feelings for thomas.
Hope: Liam, I don’t want to hurt you, but thomas is my lead designer. He is my partner and I can’t imagine being in rome without him.
Liam: Please. Because you’re– you’re all staying together, and I’m telling you, hope, it just doesn’t feel right.
Carter: There he is.
Ridge: The man of the hour.
Steffy: Nice of you to join us.
Thomas: I have no idea how you didn’t get stuck in that traffic.
Ridge: All right, can’t leave without hope, anyway.
Brooke: Well, she’s coming. She texted me a moment ago, said she should be here any minute.
Steffy: Can’t imagine hope’s goodbye to liam was nice and easy.
Carter: Oh, and I have another interview for you with an outlet from milan.
Brooke: Grazie mille.
Carter: Nessun problema.
[ Ridge laughing ]
Ridge: Look at the two of you, ready for italy.
Brooke: Yeah. Well, the question is, is italy ready for us?
Ridge: We’ll see.
[ All chuckling ]
Thomas: Does anybody want a water?
Ridge: I’ll take one.
Hope: Sorry. Sorry, I’m late, I got held up.
Brooke: Don’t apologize, honey. The important thing is, that you made it here safely.
Pilot: Okay, everyone is here, and accounted for. Everybody, please, buckle up your seat belts, we will be taking off shortly.
Hope: Thank you.
Brooke: Sweetheart, are you okay?
Hope: Yeah, I’m fine.
Brooke: Yeah? I mean, everything’s okay with you and liam?
Hope: Well, everything is under control, okay?
Hope: It’s all fine. You’ll see. Rome is going to be incredible.
