Brooke: I’ve been wanting this and praying for this for so long, that Hope would come out of her fog. She finally did. Went to Liam and asked for forgiveness and he said no.
Ridge: Sorry, Logan.
Brooke: No, I am, too. I mean, I’m just– I’m worried, you know, right? Because Hope’s in a very vulnerable state right now.
Thomas: I, um– I wasn’t sure that we would ever kiss again. And I never want to stop kissing you.
RJ: So you– so you’re saying that Dad just pushed you aside?
Eric: I didn’t have much of a chance to go into detail, but, uh… but yeah, yeah. He, um, he was too busy to talk to me about it.
RJ: And your hands…
Eric: My hands aren’t working. They won’t do the work to get my– my vision down on paper. Will you help me?
[ Door opening ]
Deacon: You’re still here?
Sheila: I– I told you, I wasn’t going anywhere, didn’t I?
Deacon: What is it they say about the definition of insanity?
Sheila: Okay, I know where you’re going with this.
Deacon: Was it doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different outcome?
Sheila: And yet, you let me stay. And they say I’m the insane one.
Deacon: Yeah. Well, I’m just reminding you and myself what a risk it is, lettin’ you stay here.
Sheila: But it’s a risk, with– definite rewards.
RJ: Granddad, listen. I really think that it’s in your best interest to tell Dad about–
Eric: No. No. No, RJ.
Eric: No. Look, he’s made it very clear that he thinks it’s time for me to trade in my pencil, and– and, uh– trade it in for a pickleball racket and– and– and just retire. But I’m not up for that. I’m not ready for that yet. I need a steady, gifted hand to help me realize my vision.
RJ: And you think that’s me?
Eric: I do. I think it’s you. I’m sure of it.
Brooke: I just can’t believe that Liam wouldn’t accept Hope’s apology.
Ridge: Some guys have a problem with betrayal.
Brooke: I understand that. But I just thought that they were gonna work things out. Now, I’m worried the divorce will really go through.
Carter: I’m sorry for interrupting. These are for you.
Ridge: Thank you.
Carter: And I couldn’t help overhearing. For what it’s worth, Liam and Hope did sign the divorce papers, but they haven’t returned them yet for filing.
Brooke: Right. But now I’m not sure what’s going to happen, because Liam couldn’t accept Hope’s plea for forgiveness.
Steffy: I think what Carter’s saying is that there’s still a chance that Hope’s marriage could work out. Focus on that. Especially if Hope is sincere about wanting nothing to do with Thomas.
Thomas: Hope, you don’t deserve this. Not to feel this way. Hurt. Rejected. Vying for Liam’s attention. You deserve to be with someone who truly loves you.
Sheila: So how was work today, sweetheart?
Deacon: Oh, it was just fine, darling. Always something, never ends, you know.
Sheila: You love it.
Deacon: I do.
Sheila: I– I– I am– I am so happy for you, that you have found your passion. I mean, look at you, responsible, happy, successful. Making good decisions.
Deacon: Yeah, not so much with the last one, but…
Sheila: Oh. It really– it means the world to me. I can’t thank you enough for giving me a place to stay. I know it’s a risk for you.
Deacon: It is a big risk. Hope and Brooke would have nothing to do with me if they ever found us together, or if they learned about our past.
RJ: Granddad… I’m flattered that you’d even asked me, but… I’m not a designer.
Eric: I thought perhaps you would, uh… say that to me. And so, in preparation for that possibility, I brought something along that I want to show you. Sit down.
RJ: Oh, what?
Eric: This. Here.
[ Eric chuckling ]
RJ: You can’t base your future off something I drew when I was four.
Eric: Oh, I think this is actually, you were three when you did this.
Eric: Take a look. Look at these lines. Look how you fill the page. Right? Look how you can get into that drawing. It’s beautiful. Look, I’m serious. You are a Forrester. You’re a designer. It’s in your blood. It’s in mine, too. And that’s why I want to ask you to do this with me. I want you to help me bring my vision to life so we can show Ridge that he still has a lot to learn from his old man. Will you do it?
RJ: So when do we start?
Brooke: This can’t be happening. I mean, Hope made some mistakes. She realizes that. She went down the wrong path. When she went to reconcile with Liam, he just shot her down.
Steffy: Well, if Hope is really over whatever feelings she has for Thomas, they’ll work through it. I just don’t know if it’s gonna happen overnight.
Brooke: I don’t know, either. And I’m just worried. I mean, she’s in a– she’s in a very vulnerable state.
Ridge: Well, this is a tricky situation, for sure. I’m worried about Thomas as well. And all the progress he’s made.
Thomas: What we do is pretty crazy. And the people who buy our designs, they do it for all different reasons. Some for the artistry, right? Some for the status they think it brings them, and… some as a metaphor. Projecting a sense of themselves onto it. But no matter what, the best thing we can do is be honest and be truthful when we’re creating them. Should stay true to ourselves. Sometimes it’s fun to, uh– to take those old designs, too. To revamp them. Try and make them fresh, try and make them new. It’s like that nostalgia of the past. That is what I see happening in your personal life. That’s what Liam does. What he has, in the moment, maybe it’s just not good enough for him anymore. And he looks to the past. All that nostalgia. But in the same way, the best thing you can do is stay true to yourself. And I’m not saying you should never feel guilty. Especially right now. I get it. But that– that kiss. In Rome. It stuck with me. Lit a fire. And all those moments we shared in my bed… they were incredible. And while Liam may be interested in nostalgia, looking to the past, trying to make things new again, for me… there’s only you.
Ridge: You know, when I say I’m concerned about Thomas, doesn’t take away my concern for you and what you’re dealing with, right?
Steffy: Hey, Dad, I can take care of myself. If only Sheila were behind bars where she belongs.
Ridge: Yeah. Well, we did all we could, I think. It’s…
Steffy: That’s not what I’m saying, Dad.
Ridge: I know. I know, but I– what I’m saying is, it’s gonna be all right. We’re gonna figure this out. Now, we have this meeting now, right?
Carter: Long overdue.
Ridge: We got this. It’s gonna be fine. Goes for you, too. Hope’s gonna be okay.
Brooke: Yeah. I pray you’re right.
Deacon: I just love Hope so much.
Sheila: I get it.
Deacon: You know, growing up, I didn’t have much of a family, and what I did have, well, that was… pretty much a dumpster fire. I– I just can’t lose her.
Sheila: Yeah, well don’t worry, okay? I’m– I’m not gonna blow our cover. It’s why I’m– I’m laying low, I’m– I’m barely leaving here.
Deacon: I noticed.
Sheila: I can’t thank you enough, really. Giving me a place to stay, I– I have no one else to turn to. There’s really no one else who understands me the way that you do.
Eric: You have no idea what this means to me.
RJ: Hey, I haven’t sketched anything yet, so I don’t want you to be disappointed or anything.
Eric: No chance of that. It’s not gonna happen. Look, I’m gonna be right with you the whole way. I’ll be looking right over your shoulder. I’ll help you with everything, okay?
Eric: My hand may be a little too shaky to– to– to realize my vision, but– but– uh, with your help, we can get this thing done. You know, my– my hand isn’t working that well anymore, but my mind is sharp as a– um– um– what’s that– what’s that word, uh…
RJ: A tack?
Eric: A tack. Sharp as a tack. Now, come on. Let’s get it going.
RJ: All right.
Eric: Now, I want this line to be simple, and elegant. Very classic. But I want it to have a little surprise, just a little twist that makes it stand out from everything else, all right?
Hope: Heh. Uh… this is all… it’s all so much, and I just–
Thomas: Yeah. Hope. Look, I– I realize you have conflicted feelings. And I know Liam got in your head. Used things in the past, things that I’m not proud of, obviously, and you– you know that. You know I’m a reformed man, and so do I. I– let me love you. Let me love you the way that no one else can.
RJ: So what do you think?
Eric: I think, uh… I think we make a really good team. Good job, my boy. Good job. I really appreciate you doing this for me.
RJ: Well, Granddad, I should be the one thanking you. For trusting me, and… for believing in me. Means a lot.
Eric: Always have. Always will. Listen, um– RJ, I want you to do me another favor.
Eric: I don’t want you to say anything to your father about this, or about what’s been going on with my hand, all right? I want to keep it between us. Because I want to show your father, and the world, that–
RJ: To never count out Eric Forrester.
Eric: It’s exactly right. Exactly right. Good. Good.
Hope: I, um– I tried to do the right thing. For my marriage, and for my family, just to make sure that there were no regrets before we made a decision that we can’t take back. And now, I– I have clarity. My marriage is over. And I hear what you are saying, Thomas, loud and clear. And I understand. But I’m not in love with you, Thomas. And I just– I– I don’t want to take advantage of your feelings for me.
Thomas: Yeah. Look, I– i understand, we’re, uh– we’ve moved pretty fast. But I really think I can make you happy.
Hope: Oh, yeah?
Hope: Well, I’m not going to pretend like you haven’t… woken something up inside of me.
Thomas: Yeah, you’ve woken up something inside of me, too. Look, I, uh– I want to give you what you need. So… maybe we can go to dinner?
Hope: I mean, that’s not exactly what I’m craving right now.
Hope: Thomas, I just need to say one thing. Liam let me down. And I’m hurting. And I am going to need some time, but… that doesn’t mean that I don’t want you.
Hope: Is that, um– is that something you can handle?
Thomas: Yeah, I think I can handle it. Sometimes we get a little too caught up in the past or the future. Let’s just live in the moment.
Brooke: Ridge and Carter certainly looked like they were on a mission.
Steffy: Yeah, I didn’t see a meeting on the calendar.
Brooke: Wonder what they’re up to?
Deacon: Maybe I really should get my head examined for lettin’ you stay here. Hey, do you think it’s possible that I actually took too many kicks to the head during martial arts?
Sheila: Well, if you don’t have to get right back to work, I think I could take up that nurse’s uniform and give you a full examination. ‘Cause I would love to show you how grateful I am for everything that you’ve done for me. Everything that you’ve… given me.

Deacon: I’m busy!
Ridge: Open up! It’s Ridge. Lookin’ for Sheila.
