Steffy: I cannot thank you enough. All this time, I’ve been terrified that my grandfather was dying, but now he’s through the procedure, he’s off the ventilator and he’s getting better every day.

Finn: Hey, eric is definitely improving, but steffy, he’s got a long road ahead of him.

Steffy: I know that, but it’s all because of you. You saved my grandfather’s life.

Hope: I think that was a good way to start the day. Eric is getting better every time we see him.

Thomas: Yeah. No, he is. You know, I– I couldn’t go through the holidays without my granddad. I just can’t imagine that.

Hope: He’s fighting his way back to us.

Thomas: Yeah. It won’t be easy though. He’s not out of the woods yet. Right? But– but for now, it looks like he’s gonna make it.

Hope: I think we can finally start to breathe again.

Brooke: Are you disappointed eric was sleeping? You really didn’t get much time to spend with him.

Ridge: That’s okay. He needed to rest. Besides felicia, kristen, rick are there. The whole family is coming, so, uh, I don’t know. I’m just glad he’s back.

Brooke: Yeah, me too. We should have known better than to count eric out. Even for a second. He has so much more life left to live.

Ridge: I know. People love him, need him.

Brooke: You more than anybody.

Ridge: Yeah, I’ve grown attached to the old man, you know? He’s beaten the odds, hasn’t he? It’s a real christmas miracle.

Thomas: I don’t know where I’d be without your support, your presence.

Hope: We helped each other. And now look. Eric’s gonna make it. I can feel it. Yes and yes– yes, there will be some challenges ahead, but knowing eric and his determination, I know that he’s going to meet them head on and rise above.

Thomas: God, I love that man. You know, he is– he is our family support, our family’s center. I just think about my dad and what he’s had to go through. Holding his own father’s life in his hands. Having to make the decision of whether to pull the plug, in a way, like, especially knowing that granddad, he– he didn’t want to be kept alive by machines. But thankfully, thank god, the family got through to him.

[ Both chuckling ]

Ridge: Let me ask you something. Do you think dad wants to be here?

Brooke: Of course. Why wouldn’t he?

Ridge: Because he flatlined, he went over to whatever the other side is and what if he liked it there and we brought him back?

Brooke: Ridge, you’ve got to stop doing this. You need to remain positive. Your father came back to us. It seems like the experimental treatment is working. He’s alive. That means anything is possible, including getting him back to being his old self again. And we have finn to thank for that.

Steffy: I never want to let you go. I kind of wish we were at home right now so I could show you how much I appreciate you.

Finn: Well, I gotta come home at some point.

Steffy: Yes, you do. It’s just amazing. You found a way to keep my grandfather alive. You have no idea how much that means to me and my family. I’ve never wanted to make love to someone more than I do now. Did you know 80% of women are struggling with hair damage?

Brooke: When eric is fully back to himself and completely recovered, he is going to be so grateful for you.

Ridge: I– I think this is kind of dependent. If he comes back and he sits behind his desk and rules this empire that he’s created and he gets to go home and make love to donna and have dinner and a couple of cocktails and play the piano, then yes, he’s going to be grateful. But if he can’t do all of that, if he’s not that same person, he’s gonna hate me. And he should.

Brooke: Oh, my gosh, he’s not gonna hate you, ridge. There’s nobody more compassionate and understanding than eric. He’s gonna know that you acted out of love. And that you worked hard at giving him a second chance at life. And when he recovers and he will, fully, then we will have finn to thank. I mean, what he’s done is incredibly remarkable. How he’s been there for steffy and the whole family.

Steffy: We all love granddad so much. The thought of losing him was incomprehensible. And then when dad wanted to take him off life support, I just– I couldn’t handle it.

Finn: It’s– it’s one of the most difficult things a family could go through.

Steffy: Oh, my gosh, I know. It was awful and it was tearing dad apart. And I begged him not to go through with it, and then when granddad died in the recovery room. And then, he comes back on– on a ventilator. Like that’s when I really started to doubt myself. And I started to wonder if– if we did the right thing. And maybe we should have let him go peacefully like he asked. But, oh, my god, thank god, we didn’t do that. Thank god, we didn’t do that.

Finn: Yeah.

Steffy: I’m just– I’m so glad that we have you. And that you gave him a second chance.

Finn: Yeah, but honey, it’s exactly that. Okay? It’s a second chance. There’s still no guarantees. He’s got a long road ahead of him.

Steffy: Yeah, but he’s gonna fight to live his best life and we’re gonna help him. Thanks to you.

Finn: No, I don’t want to lose eric either. Look, I just– listen, don’t dwell on all this, okay? And don’t guilt yourself about everything. These are very stressful and challenging things for a family to go through.

Steffy: Yeah. It makes me worried about thomas.

Finn: Why? What– what’s going on?

Steffy: He just internalizes things when he’s just scared or he’s hurting. I am glad that he’s had someone to lean on. That hope’s been there for him.

Hope: I mean, I– I still can’t believe that finn has just been working behind the scenes this entire time to try to help save your grandfather’s life. I mean, he kind of has.

Thomas: I know and I’m so grateful. I just… I hope…

Hope: What? What?

Thomas: I just hope that granddad makes a full recovery.

Hope: Well, he is still here. And he is putting up one hell of a fight and I have to believe that he is going to come back to us better than ever. And again, a large part of that is thanks to finn. I mean, your sister, she must be– she must be pretty proud.

Thomas: Oh, yeah, 100%, right, and now he’s obviously got a fan in you.

>Hope: Well, I have always had a lot of respect for him and then he gives us this miracle and I just think that we should all be very grateful that he is a part of our lives.

Thomas: You know what I’m grateful for?

Hope: Hm?

Thomas: This woman that’s in my arms right now. Yeah, that one. Right here.

Hope: Oh, oh.

Thomas: I’m just so grateful for your love and your support.

Finn: I thought you weren’t thrilled about thomas and hope’s relationship.

Steffy: I’m not. It’s just– it’s no secret that thomas is head over heels in love with hope. And she’s not gonna return the feelings.

Finn: Honey, could you blame her? I mean, how could hope forget all the things thomas did?

Steffy: He’s come a long way since then.

Finn: True. But, honey, I hate to say it but beth wouldn’t be with hope if thomas had his way all those years ago.

Steffy: Yeah, but that was a long time ago, finn. Thomas was in a really dark place. Look, I– I’m just worried that hope being so cavalier with thomas’s feelings is gonna trigger him back. And yes, I am glad that he’s had a lifeline through this whole crisis with granddad, so I can’t be mad at hope for that, but…

[ Cell phone chimes ]

[ Steffy sighs ]

Finn: I gotta get back to the floor.

Steffy: I’m gonna head over to forrester. Thank you for being my little miracle worker. What would my family do without you?

Finn: You’ll never have to find out.

Ridge: This is important. You want this tube out of your mouth or not?

[ Eric gasps ] Dad. I know I made you a promise. And I wanted to honor it. But finn came up with an option and we took it. And I’m so glad we did.

Brooke: Where did you go?

Ridge: No, I’m– I’m sorry. I’m here. I’m– I was just thinking about bridget and finnegan and taking dad off the ventilator.

Brooke: Yeah, that was really scary. Not knowing if he was going to breathe on his own or not. But then, he heard stephanie’s bible verse and he did.

[ Brooke chuckles ] I was so happy in that moment. I’ll never forget it. He did. He was breathing and eric is back with us.

Ridge: Is he back with us? Does he want to be back with us? You saw him? He woke up and he– he looked at everybody. He looked at me. He wasn’t smiling and it didn’t seem angry, but he just seemed like a man who was in a place where he wanted to be and got pulled back into a hospital bed.

Brooke: Ridge, he was unconscious. He was trying to, you know, make the adjustment coming out of that.

Ridge: I just don’t know that he wants to be here.

Brooke: Well, I do know, we have proof. On christmas day, he started breathing again on his own.

Ridge: Okay.

Brooke: And for the record, I know that eric is happy to be back here with us. Especially with you. A son that he adores.

Thomas: Yes, he is off the ventilator and he’s fully conscious. I know, it’s amazing. I’ll keep you posted, okay, renee? All right, thanks. Bye. What?

Hope: It’s just really nice to see you so relieved. That smile.

[ Thomas laughs ]

Thomas: I’m smiling because of you. You stood by me through all of this and held my hand through some of my family’s darkest hours. I love you, hope, and I can see how much you love me. (Owner) purina one… we switched and wow! From day 1, its proven natural nutrition supports charlie’s strong immune system… and ginger’s healthy heart. (Vo) healthy differences today and for a lifetime. Purina one. A difference from day one.

Brooke: It’s obvious how much you and your father love each other. You share so many beautiful memories together.

Ridge: I should never take any of that for granted.

Brooke: No, life is too fleeting. I mean, look around. You grew up here. You were playing on the floor. Your dad taught you so much. He turned you into this amazing designer and made you the man that you are today.

Ridge: Yeah, it’s true. I love that man. The smartest, the kindest man I know. And I would do anything for him. Except let him go. I couldn’t do that.

Brooke: Yeah, well, I always knew he was gonna make it.

Ridge: Did you?

Brooke: Mm-hmm.

Ridge: See, that’s why my dad loves you because you’re always so positive. He’s always been our champion, right? Always believed in our love.

Brooke: Our destiny.

Ridge: Our destiny. Smartest man I know. And thank you for always being my rock. Even through your own pain.

Brooke: I will always be whatever you need me to be.

Ridge: Same. I gotta say something because I don’t say it nearly enough. I am so glad I’m on this journey with you. I love you so much, logan.

Thomas: All the time we’ve spent together and how close we’ve become, it tells me everything I need to know about how you feel about me. And you obviously know how I feel about you. I’m here for you and only you. Hey, steff. Uh, any news about granddad?

Steffy: He’s doing a lot better. We still don’t know the prognosis, but he’s– he’s not backsliding.

Thomas: Thank god.

Hope: I’m so happy for you both. I know how much you love him.

Steffy: Yeah, you have, uh, you’ve been a huge support. I appreciate that.

Hope: I’m sensing a but.

Steffy: Yeah, there is. I mean, there’s no surprise I’m concerned about my brother.

Thomas: There’s no reason to be.

Steffy: Really? Are you sure about that? Considering the history between you and hope?

[ Thomas clears throat ] So, what is this? I’m curious. Is this a– is this a relationship now? Are you guys hooking up? You really think that’s a good idea?

Thomas: Steff, I told you, everything is under control.

Steffy: I’m not sure about that after what I just heard. Thomas, you are in love with hope. You’ve been in love with hope for a very long time and those feelings have taken you to very unfortunate places. Do not lead my brother on, hope. Do not toy with his emotions. He doesn’t deserve it. What he deserves is the truth. So, be honest with him. Do you love thomas or not?
