[ Ridge sighing ]
Ridge: What do you think?
Rj: I like it. I like the– the design.
Ridge: It’s all right, huh?
Ridge: Men’s collection is coming together. You okay?
Rj: Yeah. I don’t know. I’m worried about hope’s marriage a little bit.
Hope: I take full responsibility for what I’ve done with thomas. But, liam, even you have to admit that thomas isn’t the only one that has interfered in our marriage. Steffy has been there all along and it’s starting to feel a little hypocritical and I refuse to put up with it any longer.
Finn: Do you know what the issue is? Some former patient of mine needs to see me right away? Okay. Um, yeah, well, I’m finishing up some things at home, but I guess I’ll just call you back shortly. Okay.
Steffy: No surprise you’re needed.
[ Finn scoffing ] Oh, you’re the best.U’re sh a caring and compassionate doctor.
Mike: Good to see you, sheila. Pulled some strings to arrange a visit with my favorite fellow inmate.
[ Sheila sighing ]
Sheila: What is it you want, mike?
Mike: Oh, I got word your trial’s coming up, and, well, I just hope you’re adjusting to prison life all right. ‘Cause, well, you’re gonna be here a long, long time.
Steffy: I am so proud of you, baby. So many people admire you, not only as a doctor, but as a man too. Especially me. You’re such a kind human being and you would do anything for your patients.
Sheila: Well, your sources are correct. My attorney said that my time before the judge is– is coming.
Mike: Well, just keep your expectations low.
Sheila: Oh, gosh. Your encouragement is– oh, it’s heartwarming, mike.
Mike: What can I say? I’m a realist. Sheila, you’re not getting out of here.
Sheila: Is– is that what this visit is all about?
Mike: Babe, it’s about seeing the bright side. You’re not in here alone. Yours truly is behind bars, too.
Ridge: I admire how much you care about hope.
Rj: Yeah. I really– I– I hate seeing her upset. It’s hard on me.
Ridge: You know what I think?
Ridge: I think the two of them are gonna be okay.
Rj: I, uh… thanks, thank you. I– I might’ve, uh, gone over to talk to liam, actually, on behalf of hope.
Rj: I mean, it wasn’t– I was just trying to get through to him, you know, what the stakes are and what he could lose, and I– I really tried to get him to forgive hope.
Liam: I’m sorry. I– forgive me. How did we– how did we get from you kissing thomas to an argument about steffy?
Hope: Because you love her. Right? You’ll always love her. And I– I know that because I’ve lived through this, liam. I’ve– I’ve grown up with ridge and his divided feelings between my mom and taylor and I don’t want any part of it.
Liam: I don’t get the analogy. What, you’re not gonna make the same mistake as brooke by running off with the bad boy? Like, wh– what? So bad? Right now. Today. Is that– is it because he loves me? It’s because he’s dedicated to me? Is it because he’s loyal? Is it because when I look into his eyes, I just see %100 commitment and I can’t say the same for you? Metro has unlimited 5g for just $25.
Sheila: Yeah. You’re right. My future is looking rather bleak.
Mike: Your attorney offering any hope?
Sheila: No. I did reach out to jack, finn’s father. He couldn’t shut me down fast enough.
Mike: Well, no shock there. But, sheila, you gotta stay positive or you’ll go crazy in here.
Sheila: Mike, I– I could almost live with the fact that I’d behind bars for the rest of my life. But what makes me crazy is to know that I could never being close to finn and hayes ever again.
Steffy: I gotta get to the office before it gets too late. Dad wants me to look at some samples.
Finn: Yeah, and I gotta call my nurse back about this patient.
Steffy: Yeah, and I’ll– I’ll make those calls this week about a nanny. I’m hoping that we can interview some this week.
Finn: Yes. Thank you. I don’t know what I’d ever do without you. I love our family so much.
Steffy: Me too.
Finn: And I will always do whatever it takes to keep everyone safe and happy.
Rj: I really wish I can be as optimistic about hope and liam’s marriage as you are.
Ridge: But you have doubts.
Rj: Yeah, I have doubts. I– listen, I talked to liam. All right? I looked him in the face. We talked about all this. He is hurt, he is betrayed, he’s blindsid– I’ve never seen him ke I think it’s going to take a miracle for him to forgive hope, honestly.
Ridge: Well, time heals wounds, son. And I think liam going to realize what’s best for him, for his family.
Rj: I mean, do you really think liam is going to throw away his entire life, his marriage over one kiss? I don’t know. You know what, I think I need to just back away. I think– and to think a little more positively about it. Take a page out of your book and just believe that the two of them are going to figure it out. And I hope they do.
Liam: Hope, I– I have been totally committed to you.
Hope: Was that past tense?
Liam: How are you doing– how are you turning this around on me when clearly, you’ve had feeling for thomas for god knows how long.
Hope: Can I ask you a question?
Liam: Fine. What?
Hope: Given how easy it was for you to ask for a divorce from me over a kiss, was it because of steffy? Let me guess. You– you told her that, um, walking away from her was the biggest mistake of your life? Hm? What’s so sad about that is that I know that’s probably how you feel. Salonpas lidocaine flex.
Ridge: Well, I would have to say it’s the, uh, sustainable component of this last collection that keeps us apart from the competition. You– you can definitely print that. Yes. Okay. Any time. I’m– oh. I got another call. Oh, I will. Th– oh, yes. Thank you.
[ Rj laughing ]
Rj: Nice. That was good. Kind of leave them wanting more, right?
Ridge: Yeah, he wanted a soundbite. Now, he has one. Glad you’re here. And I don’t mean because I, you know…
Rj: Dad, I know.Th
Steffy: Hi, you two.
Rj:. Hey, steffy. What’s up?
Steffy: Sorry, I’m late. Finn and I are in the process of looking for a new nanny, which can be crazy.
Ridge: Speaking of finn, I was talking to carter and he says that sheila’s trial is approaching.
Steffy: Thank god. That day can’t come soon enough. We can keep sheila carter behind bars for the rest of her life.
Guard: Time’s up, guthrie.
Mike: Already? Man, time flies when you’re having fun. Well, my friend, I will be thinking of you and your day in court. And I will come and have a face-to-face with you every chance I get. You’re stuck with me, now. Maybe we’ll be together forever after all.
Finn: No! Is th– there has to be another way! Is there not any other doctor that’s available? Okay, okay, okay. You know what? Fine. Just tell them I’ll do it one last time, okay? One time, that’s it.
Liam: Yeah, hope, absolutely. I’m re-evaluating some choices now. I’ve always cared about steffy, but this is a whole other–
Hope: Do you hear yourself, liam? That’s part of the problem.
Liam: What is the problem? That I have a history with steffy? That I gave all of that up for you? Sorry, I shouldn’t have said that.
Hope: No. No. You meant it. You feel like it was a mistake giving up your life up with steffy.
Liam: Do you feel like I’ve forced you to give up something with thomas?
Hope: I am sorry that I have caused so much pain and heartache. Liam, I promise you you that was never my intention. But maybe, this… was always going to be impossible. Maybe, it’s been… too much back and forth. Too many betrayals, just– maybe, it was just too much to overcome.
Liam: Okay. Okay, so… so, what– what are you saying?
Hope: I love you. I will always love you. And I believe that standing here, at heart, we are both good people. But maybe, the situation is just untenable. I know that you’ve always felt pulled in two different directions and you’ve always wanted more time over at steffy’s, and well, um… yeah, now’s– now’s your chance.
[ Hope sighing ]
Hope: I, uh… I had my attorney draw up divorce papers. Thoughts, martin?
Rj: Hey, does carter have an exact date for the sheila trial?
Ridge: No, not yet. He’s keeping us posted. How do you think finn is gonna feel about his birth mother going away for the rest of her days?
Steffy: He wants sheila to pay for her crimes more than anyone.
Sheila: Why am I still here? Is there someone coming to visit me?
Sheila: Oh, god, please, please. Please let him be coming to see me, please, lord, please. Finn, you came!
Finn: I’m only here as your doctor.
Sheila: It’s okay. It doesn’t matter why you came, it– it just matters that you’re here. I am so grateful to see you, my handsome son. I mean, just look at you. You know, it doesn’t matter what happens. It– it won’t change the fact that I brought you into this world. I’m your mother, finn. Your mother. And I’m never gonna stop loving you.
Liam: Wow. You had the papers drawn up.
Hope: You’re the one who asked for a divorce, liam. Liam, I love you. And I know you will continue to be an amazing father to our baby girl. But…
[ Clears throat ] …You wanted a divorce, so I took you at your word.
[ Liam sighing ]
Liam: You ready for this? You– you’re ready to walk away?
Hope: I did not want this, no. I did not want the heartache and… the pain and– and I did not want to raise our daughter in a broken family. But here we are. So no, liam. I wanted none of this.
Liam: Except maybe thomas.
Hope: You will be free to live your life… and I will be free to live mine. .
