Sheila: Don’t deny it because I heard everything.
Deacon: What exactly is it that you think you heard?
Sheila: You have a– a past history with the judge that presided over my case and you called in a favor. You’re the one that made sure I was set free.
Finn: Well, that’s exactly the outcome we were looking for. Yes. No, it’s great news. So, you get home and have some rest and, um, uh, we’ll follow up soon. Okay. Bye bye. Wait. What? How did you get past security?
Liam: Well, I– I used to live here and so did my daughter, so I used my key.
Finn: Why are you here?
Liam: Yeah. Uh, kelly’s been missing one of her favorite stuffies. I found it. Steffy said that you were gonna ship over a bunch of stuff, so she told me to bring it by.
Finn: You’ve been talking to my wife?
Finn: All right. Why don’t you just leave it on the table? And don’t communicate with steffy.
Brooke: Mm. Ah, I have missed you. You’ve been working a lot lately.
Ridge: I know, I’m– I’m sorry, I’ve got…
Brooke: Is this because of the fashion challenge against your father?
Ridge: Well, I gotta take it seriously, right? But I hate it. I– I hate being at odds with my dad.
Donna: I asked sophia to make us some tea. You want anything? Maybe some food? I haven’t seen you eat much lately.
Eric: Yeah. I haven’t been very hungry actually, but thanks. Look, the only thing I want to do is the thing I can’t, which is to realize this material and get it down on paper. I can’t do it. It’s just useless.
Donna: Okay. Um, well, what– what about the pills?
Eric: They don’t work, donna. They don’t work. I’m sorry– I’m sorry. I just– I appreciate so much what you do for me and– and– and all the help that rj gives me, but he can’t do this alone. Not without my guidance.
Donna: Look, sweetheart. Maybe this is just– it’s too much. You know, you’re working so hard. You don’t have to prove anything.
Eric: Yes, I do. This may be my last chance to put a full collection out there in the world. I’m not gonna walk away. I’m not gonna walk away. I can’t!
Rj: Hey, hey. What’s– what’s going on?
Carter: You busy? We need to make some decisions about the budget for next quarter. And as you know, couture is our biggest expenditure. So, we need to make some difficult choices about reallocations in order to accommodate eric’s collection.
Ridge: Great. It’s affecting the whole company. Why’s my dad doing this?
Donna: Eric was trying to design and he’s having horrible tremors in his hands.
Eric: Yes. Yeah, they’re getting worse. Um, they’re getting worse.
Donna: Maybe this– this fashion showdown isn’t worth it. We can both see the toll it’s taking on you.
Rj: Hey, granddad. Look at me. Listen, I– I will help you with your vision, but you realize you have absolutely nothing to prove. You– you are on top. You’ve been on top for years. She’s absolutely right. There is no reason why you should be sacrificing your health to make this collection.
Liam: Finn, steffy is the mother of my child. I’m gonna be communicating with her. There’s nothing you can do about that. Matter of fact, I was thinking about flying out there soon to see kelly. So, maybe…
Finn: Liam, I’m not gonna let you undermine my marriage.
Liam: Undermine your– I miss my daughter, don’t you miss your son?
Finn: Oh, so now you miss your daughter. That’s– that’s convenient. Keep my son out of this and stay the hell away from my wife.
Liam: Okay. Can you stay the hell away from sheila?
Sheila: I just– I can’t believe that you would go to bat for me with the judge to ensure my freedom.
Deacon: Sheila, we cannot have this conversation here.
Sheila: Yeah, of course. Right.
Deacon: Okay. Let’s go up to the apartment.
Sheila: Why? Deacon, are you– are you inviting me back to your place?
Deacon: I guess I am.
Sheila: You have no idea how much this means to me. You literally gave me back my life, [Indistinct]. Thank you, deacon. Really. Thank you.
Deacon: Come on. Liberty mutual customized my car insurance
Ridge: What are we talking about exactly?
Carter: Cuts, ridge. Deep cuts.
Brooke: Could you be more specific?
Carter: I worked on a new budget to accommodate for time, money, and resources to realize eric’s collection and you can see right there that he is not doing things on the cheap.
Ridge: This it? This is what we’re talking about?
Ridge: Has he seen this?
Carter: Not yet.
Ridge: This makes no sense. Not to the company, not to him. What’s my dad doing?
Eric: I just–
Donna: Eric. Eric.
Eric: All right.
Donna: Look, I can see the toll this is taking on you. Designing this collection shouldn’t run you into the ground.
Rj: She’s absolutely right. I mean, what good is making a final collection if your health is gonna suffer more in the process?
Donna: Put down the pencil. Let’s call your doctor.
Eric: No, no, donna no. Look, rj and I are doing fine. We’re– we’re doing great with this. You’ve really sparked to my teaching. Doing it really well. This is just a– it’s just a bump in the road, that’s all it is. I’ll get over this. I’ll– I’ll– I’ll be fine.
Donna: Eric, please just call–
Eric: No, donna, no. I’m not gonna– I’m gonna run with this. I’m gonna do this and rj is gonna help me. That’s what we’re gonna do. Here, take this.
Donna: Are you okay?
Eric: Yeah. The beginnings of a headache. I’m gonna, uh, I’m just gonna go upstairs for a while, lay down, okay?
Eric: Listen, when I come downstairs, I don’t want to hear any more about us not being able to complete this collection, all right? Nothing else. Nothing more. And I certainly don’t want you to tell anybody– anybody else about my condition, and certainly not your father. Certainly not him.
Finn: Steffy and I are a family. I’m the one that she’s gonna be coming home to, all right? This is my life, not yours. You better get that.
Liam: I got it. Um, but the only reason steffy’s in europe right now is because you can’t protect her from your birth mother.
Finn: Just– just stop with all this, okay? You– you– you think now that you’ve dumped hope, you can just what? Waltz in here and take my wife? Liam, steffy knows all the pain and the heartache that you have caused her and I’m gonna make sure that you never hurt her again.
Liam: I’m confused. How am I a threat to steffy? Like she didn’t dump me, finn, she dumped you and it’s because of this inexplicable connection you have to sheila.
Deacon: Stop looking at me like that. It wasn’t that big a deal.
Sheila: Oh, wait, are you kidding me? I’ve never had anyone stand up for me like that.
Deacon: That’s not right. Sheila, everyone deserves to have at least one person in their life who stands up for them.
Sheila: Yeah, but when I– I heard what you said to judge scott. I– I honestly was floored. I– I’ve never had anyone… there’s honestly been no one who has ever said anything so kind about me. You fought for my freedom. You fought for me, deacon. Why? Why was it so important that– that– that judge makes sure I stay a free woman?
Donna: I just, um, checked on him. He– he’s okay.
Rj: He’s okay?
Rj: Donna, listen, I’m– I’m seriously worried about him. His condition’s obviously getting worse. I mean–
Donna: I know I– he’s just– he’s so frustrated.
Rj: Listen. When it started out, it was really positive. He was– he was really confident in his ability. So much so that he challenged dad to this fashion showdown and it was exciting and it was fun. But now, it is not like that anymore. We need to face that. He is stressed, he’s burnt out, he’s tired.
Donna: I agree– I agree, okay? I agree.
Rj: I’m worried about keeping this secret from my dad. I know that he would want to know what’s going on with him. Donna, I think it’s time.
Donna: Time for what?
Rj: It’s time that my dad knew what’s actually going on with granddad.
Liam: I’m not the problem, finn. You want me to go away? You want me to become a non-issue in your marriage? There’s an answer for that. You just stop blaming me and start focusing on the real problem, which is sheila.
Deacon: Now, I know that I’m always saying that you’re the crazy one and I’m pretty sure that’s true. But I am too because I am crazy about you. And so, if you want to know the reason why I didn’t want to see you rotting in a prison cell, it’s simple. I just– I couldn’t imagine my life without you in it.
Sheila: Haven’t we just agreed to not see each other anymore?
Deacon: Yeah, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t want to see you happy.
Sheila: You really mean that? I– when I– when I was released, I thought it was a miracle. I thought I’d been given a second chance at life and I had– I had no idea it was because of you. I– I– part of me, it’s– it’s– it’s like part of me wants to believe it’s too good to be true, and then the other part of me says it makes perfect sense because you’re the– you’re the deacon sharpe that I know. That’s– that’s just you. You are an incredibly caring, sensitive, passionate man that has always been my champion. Febreze!
Ridge: Well, we can’t do this. We can’t cut funding to hope for the future. The line’s been doing great.
Brooke: I agree. That would be absolutely ridiculous.
Carter: Okay. Then maybe we could, um, hold off on the bedroom line this fiscal year.
Ridge: A hold off on the bedroom line. The one line that makes money every year, just to humor my dad. Good idea.
Carter: I’m trying to figure this out, man. There’s– there is one more solution.
Carter: Talk to your son. He’s working with eric. Maybe he can give us some insight into why eric is so adamant about making this collection. This very costly collection. He can give us some idea on how to talk him out of it.
Brooke: Maybe he can convince eric to collaborate with you on one single couture line.
Ridge: Sure, I’ll talk to rj. Give it a shot. The stakes are too high. I don’t know what we’re doing. I don’t know what my dad is doing.
Rj: I know that granddad wouldn’t be happy if I told my dad, but we are in the same boat here, okay? We are both worried about him and obviously, this collection is having a negative effect on his health. A very long-term negative effect and I’m worried that if something happened to him, I would not be able to forgive myself and neither would you. And honestly, I don’t think my dad would be able to forgive me for never telling him. It’s his son, donna. I think he needs to know the truth.
Finn: Yeah. I– I don’t need you to tell me how to protect my family.
Liam: All right, well, if not me, then maybe somebody else should because dude, you’re really bad at it. And by the way, stop saying your family, this affects my family too. My daughter could get caught in the crossfire here. Now, that it’s just the two of us, would you mind telling me what the hell this is? Seriously, well, like what– what– what is this weird connection you have to sheila? Because to my eye, here’s a woman who’s caused your family nothing but pain and suffering. So, why do you want anything to do with her? Can you just tell me that?
Finn: Liam, don’t worry about my feelings for sheila, okay?
Liam: Okay. I won’t worry about your feelings, but you should because those feelings are what are telling me and everyone else that you’re not taking protecting your wife and kids seriously.
Sheila: No one’s ever cared about me the way that you do. I’m– I’m really not sure anyone has ever cared about me at all.
Deacon: No one should feel that way.
Sheila: Yeah, but when you see me, you– you don’t look away. In your eyes, I’m worth something. That I might even be deserving of tenderness and a touch. I– I never felt that from anyone my entire life. I– I’ve never had anyone on my side. Not at all.
Deacon: Sheila, we understand each other. We’ve both been knocked down, felt like the whole damn world’s against us. We don’t have to do it alone anymore.
