Finn: Like she needs someone to spot her.

Liam: Yeah. Cue her to pretend to struggle, in three, two, one.

Rj: Got it?

Dakota: Yeah. No.

Rj: No, okay.

Liam: Yeah, there it is.

Rj: Okay.

Dakota: Thanks. I guess I hit my limit.

Rj: Hey, you almost had it. You were that close. I’m not gonna lie.

Dakota: Might try again after I rest a bit.

Rj: Yeah, sure. Just let me know, I’ll be over there.

Dakota: Okay.

Finn: And ten.

Rj: What?

Liam: I think you should have offered her a towel.

Rj: Why? She wasn’t exactly breaking a sweat?

Finn: No. I meant for the drool, man.

Rj: Oh, come on. Very funny. Very, very funny.

Liam: Hey, rj, don’t look now, but I think you have another admirer.

[ Jackhammer pounding ] You’re going to have a monopoly on spotting services, you know that?

Rj: You are making me regret bringing both of you here right now. That’s what you’re doing.

Finn: We’re going to behave, right, liam?

Liam: Speak for yourself. I’m not behaving. By the way, thank you for inviting us. The jackhammer really helps me keep tempo.

Rj: Well, what can I say, you know? I felt bad, you know. You two lonely bachelors abandoned by my sisters in L.A. I just feel terrible.

Liam: Aw.

Finn: My wife on the way to rome, we’re stuck here in L.A.

Liam: Okay, listen, I’m– I am so excited for hope. I’m really proud that she has this opportunity. My only– my only thing is, no offense, I know he’s your brother, but why does thomas have to tag along? Like, I feel like he should be here in L.A., Not in rome with my wife.

Ridge: All right. It shouldn’t be too much longer.

Brooke: Oh, thank god. I can’t wait for italy.

Carter: Yeah, I think we all can’t wait.

Ridge: You know what I do want to do? I wanna go to that gelato place you found last time.

Brooke: Oh, yeah, you read my mind.

Hope: Oh, gosh, yes. Just bring on all the food, every kind of pasta.

Brooke: Oh, there’s my girl.

Steffy: Just make sure you use napkins. Thomas worked his butt off designing those gowns. The last thing I want to see is marinara all over those gowns.

Hope: Okay. Deal. We have an agreement. Anything to make this preview a success.

Thomas: You know, I really am amazed by you, carter. I mean, you getting the permits for this and it’s such an amazing place.

Carter: When hope asked for an iconic backdrop, I thought, “you might as well dream big, right?”

Hope: I’m so excited. I mean, I’m also a little nervous. I mean, I usually have butterflies before a forrester runway but– but this…

Thomas: In a place so historic?

Hope: It’s going to be wild.

Carter: Wildly successful, you mean.

Hope: Well, if it is– no, when it is, it will be in large part thanks to you, carter. I mean, all of your hard work on this line. I– I really don’t think we could have pulled it together without you. And you, my fearless lead designer over there. I mean, I just am in awe of your artistry and your talent and I really don’t think we’d be on a plane heading to rome if it wasn’t for your help. So, I’m very thankful for you and for the beauty of your work.

Rj: I get it, man. I totally understand why you feel guarded around thomas, especially when it comes to hope, you know.

Liam: I mean, yeah. But aren’t you, a little bit? Like hope’s your sister, you can’t be that comfortable with the role that he’s playing in her life, especially given all the crap he’s pulled.

Rj: Yeah. I– I don’t know, man, it’s weird. I’m kind of a brother to both, sort of.

Finn: Well then, to complicate it even more, the consensus seems to be that thomas has really changed this time.

Liam: I know. I wish– trust me. I wish I could buy that. It’s just hard, especially when hope’s well-being is at stake. Hey.

Liam: I mean, it’d be different if I could just believe in thomas, you know. If I could just, like, magically convince myself that he’s changed, but every time I try, I just, I can’t do it. And it doesn’t matter like how good he’s being, it still comes off as like phony to me. Like calculable.

Rj: I– I get it. I mean, there might be a chance that you’re right, but I doubt it. I mean, come on, look at him. He’s got way too much to lose. He’s got his career, his kid. I mean, he’s got every reason to be on his best behavior, right?

Liam: I know. I know, but I’m saying he’s had those reasons in the past and he was still willing to risk his career and his relationship with douglas. So like, what, why– why does everybody think this time it’s gonna be different? Like, help me understand that.

Finn: Look, liam, I don’t think rj and I should necessarily be trying to sway you on this. I mean, this is about your wife, protecting your family. You should trust your instincts on this, especially on this. But I will say, I have seen noticeable changes in thomas’s behavior. It used to be with thomas, you got a sense that he was always holding back, never giving you the full story about anything, which he wasn’T. Super shady dude. The feeling’s gone. ‘Cause when I look him in the eye now, I see clarity. I see a guy who’s figured things out.

Liam: Yeah. Okay. But like– like what if, what he’s figured out is just how to play us all better?

Finn: Well, maybe, but I’m with rj on this. I doubt it. Honestly, you want the best evidence that thomas is on the right path? It’s steffy. You trust her judgment, right?

[ Liam chuckling ]

Liam: Usually, yeah.

Finn: Yeah. Well, steffy believes in thomas. She’s tried to convince you, right?

Liam: Yeah, she has. Multiple times.

Finn: Okay. And, you know, steffy. I mean, there’s no way she would even consider defending thomas if she didn’t truly mean it.

Liam: No.

Rj: No, no one’s more of a straight shooter than steffy, right?

Liam: That’s valid. I mean, yeah, that’s a valid point. And honestly, I’m– I take comfort in the fact that steffy is going to be on this trip. She even told me she would, like, keep an eye on things for me.

Rj: On what? On hope and thomas?

Liam: Yeah, because if there’s anything concerning going on, steffy will see it.

Hope: And… I mean, um…

Thomas: It’s something.

Hope: Oh, this is actual… here we go.

Carter: Your brother and hope, who would’ve thought, right? Everything they’ve been through and you wouldn’t know it looking at how they relate now. The bond they created, the team. It’s so great seeing two people connect the way they do. It’s like they totally get each other.

Steffy: They certainly do.

Thomas: I didn’t know we were able to do that. Let me play around a lot more.

Hope: I know.

Ridge: All right. I talked to the pilot, we’ll be landing soon.

Brooke: Oh, good. I can’t wait to get off this plane.

Ridge: Long flight, I know, but it’s worth it.

Brooke: It is so worth it. There’s no city quite like rome.

Ridge: Something about it being romantic and stuff, right?

Brooke: Yeah. Did I say that?

Ridge: Once or twice, yes.

Brooke: Well, I know you don’t believe in romance and destiny right now, but I’m hoping that rome can help you find that again.

Pilot: Okay, folks. Time to buckle up. We’re starting our descent. Should be on the ground shortly.

Hope: Roma, here we come. I need to dig deep to do this,

Rj: Hey, no way.

Finn: That girl just text you? When– when did she even get your number?

Liam: I think beautiful women just like, know it by osmosis.

Rj: That’s– that’s very funny, but no, they do not. I wish they did. It was actually my mom letting me know that they landed safely.

Liam: Ah, ah, that’s lame, but it makes more sense.

Finn: Yeah, it makes a lot more sense. Why don’t you give her your number, man? She’s clearly into you.

Liam: Yeah.

Rj: I might slip it into the conversation next time she asks me to spot her.

Liam: Atta boy. Did, uh, did– did brooke say anything else?

Rj: No, just that they’re hitting the ground running?

Finn: Oh, man, it’s sinking in now. I’m officially getting jealous.

Rj: You jealous? What? Didn’t steffy invite you on the trip?

Finn: Yeah, I just have too many commitments at the hospital right now. Not to mention the kids. So, yeah, probably smartest I stay back.

Rj: What about you, liam? I mean, it kind of makes sense to me that you go considering how you feel about thomas.

Liam: Yeah. No, I know. Hope suggested it, albeit like super last minute. So logistically, it’S… I don’t know, it’s a work trip. I would rather go at a time when it feels like an actual vacation. And honestly, no matter how suspicious I am of thomas, I really don’t want to be that like, creepy jealous husband who’s just keeping tabs on his wife. That’s a whole…

Finn: You know what you ought to do, man?

Liam: What?

Finn: Surprise hope.

Liam: Surprise her how? Like– like what? Like in italy?

Finn: Yes, italy. And not as a super jealous husband type but as a, uh, romantic one. The kind of husband that wants to be at his wife’s press event, that flies halfway across the world as this epic show of support. I mean, think about the points you’d get. But yeah, I know it’s a work trip and there’s going to be some busy schedules going on, but there’s going to be downtime, man. In italy. In rome. It’s one of the prettiest cities in the world. This is kind of a no-brainer. So why don’t you go and do that? Hop on a plane, surprise your wife.

Thomas: Not too bad.

Hope: Mom, how did you find this villa?

Brooke: I have my secrets.

Steffy: This is so beautiful.

Carter: Wow, this is amazing.

Steffy: This is great. Look at this. It’s so, so good.

Daniela: Ciao. It’s so good to see you.

Ridge: It’s good to be here.

Brooke: Oh, yeah, we’re so excited to be back in rome. It’s been too long.

Daniela: We prepared all of you to be swept up in eternal city of love.

Brooke: Okay.

Daniela: Inside?

Brooke: Okay. Scout is protected by simparica trio,

Liam: Wait, so you’re not just messing with me right now? Like, you think I should actually do this? I should surprise hope in rome?

Finn: Dude, imagine the look on her face. As she’s taking a bow, right? To thunderous applause and she’s looking out over the adoring crowd, only to eventually make eye contact with you. And she’ll see exactly how much her husband truly cares about her.

Rj: I mean, I think finn is completely right, dude. It’d be insane if you just showed up and she saw you. I think she’d be ecstatic. I don’t know.

Finn: Yeah, do it, man. Come on, you’re gonna go up there. You’re gonna take the woman that you love into your arms. You’re gonna tell her how important she is to you. You’re gonna tell her exactly how you feel. You need to be there for her, man.

Liam: You know what? You guys are right. You’re absolutely right. Just screw it.

Rj: Yeah.

Liam: Yeah. I’m gonna do it. I’m gonna–

Rj: Do it.

Liam: I’m gonna go to rome. I’m gonna go to rome.

Brooke: Daniela is right. We’re about to be caught up in the city of eternal love.

Ridge: That’s what everyone keeps telling me.

Brooke: Everyone?

Ridge: You.

Brooke: You’re not gonna be able to escape the magic, the magic of rome.

[ Brooke chuckling ]

[ Bells tolling ]

Carter: She’s not wrong, the place is pretty magical. Okay, so I locked up jasmine’s contract, got off the phone with the photographer. The swimsuit photo shoot is going to be epic. I mean, look at the view, right? This is amazing. What’s so good about it too is that when we get them here…

Hope: It’s so beautiful. It’s the perfect setting for a preview.

Thomas: I like this. I– yeah, all of this, but I love seeing you so happy. So excited.

Hope: Yeah, well, uh, I– I like it too. Yeah.

Thomas: This is where it happens, hope. Your vision brought to life.

Hope: Well, that’s also thanks to you and all your dedication and hard work. This dream wouldn’t be a reality if it wasn’t for you. So thank you. You should be proud.
