Thomas: I was there that night. I was on Mulholland, following Emma’s car.

Hope: Yeah, because she was on her way to see me. To tell me that Beth was alive.

Thomas: Yeah. But what Xander accused me of, I didn’t drive Emma off the road, Hope. I’m not a murderer. I tried to stop her and I did not want her to die. I have been completely open and honest with you. And now, you know everything. So please, tell me we can still have a future together. ♪♪♪

Luna: I’m still smiling after seeing Eric. I’m so happy we got to visit him.

R.J.: Yeah. Me too. I, uh, I told him we were gonna go back and see him later tonight. You’re not the only one who’s still smiling ’cause I heard all those nice things you said about me to granddad. They were very cute.

Luna: I was supposed to be playing it cool.

R.J.: Yeah, too late. You are very into me and I’m into you.

Brooke: Ooh. Oh, R.J. Uh, I– I– I didn’t realize that you were in here. So, uh, just, uh, I’ll be back. Carry on.

R.J.: Okay.

Luna: Uh, well, that wasn’t embarrassing at all.

R.J.: This is what I’ve been saying, okay? I– I need to get my own place. Right? Like– like today.

Ridge: Dad’s getting better every day.

Carter: Yeah, what a relief. I’m thrilled for Eric. Well, for all of you really.

Ridge: Means a lot how much you care about him.

Carter: Of course I care about him. You’re like family to me.

Ridge: Like family? No, we are a family. Come here.

Carter: Thanks, man.

Brooke: Oh, now you two? I keep interrupting everybody tonight. ♪♪♪

Luna: Yeah, I mean, you’ve been mentioning for a while, how much you want your own place.

R.J.: Yeah, it’s– it’s… You know, it’s not that I don’t enjoy living with my parents. It’s just it was only meant to be temporary.

Luna: Yeah, well, I know they enjoy having you around.

R.J.: Well… I mean– I mean, that’s the thing, you know, ’cause… when I got back things were a little, like, rocky between them, you know? Like with my dad moving back in and, you know, it– it just felt right, like it felt healing for– for my family.

Luna: Yeah.

R.J.: Yeah. You know, now everything is better and maybe, uh, it’d be nice to have a little bit of privacy.

Luna: Yes, it would be.

Brooke: So, I walked in on R.J. and Luna kissing. I felt terrible.

Ridge: Well, I’m sure our son was equally mortified.

Brooke: I just hope I handled it the right way. I don’t want them to feel embarrassed.

Carter: Well their relationship isn’t exactly on the low. I mean, everyone in this building knows how they feel about each other.

Brooke: Well, that’s true. And it is cute how smitten he is with her. And she does seem to be a nice, wonderful, very talented young lady.

Ridge: Well, that’s fantastic. That’s exactly what we need, right? Another office romance including one of my kids.

Brooke: Uh, yeah.

Thomas: Say something, Hope.

Hope: I’m– I’m not really sure what to say.

Thomas: I know it’s a lot to digest but now you have the whole story. Look, there are no more secrets between us.

Hope: I appreciate you being honest about what happened that night. But…

Thomas: Hope, I love you and I want to marry you. And I don’t want the past to affect where we are right now.

Hope: I just– I’m going to need some time.

Thomas: I understand.

Hope: But I also don’t want you to lose sight of the fact that I– I know the man that you’ve become.

Thomas: Thank you. As long as you have my ring on your chain, I… still have hope.

Hope: I can’t give you any promises about what the future may hold. Thomas, I just– I just need… I need time to make sense of everything that you have just told me. ♪♪♪

Carter: I’d say you both know a thing or two about office romance.

Ridge: I think we’ve all dabbled a little, Carter.

Carter: Touché, touché. But you two, you’re the king and queen.

Ridge: I am the king. And there’s my queen. Hi. Brooke Hm. Yes.

Brooke: But we can’t compare ourselves to Hope and Thomas. You know that, right? That was a different situation. We’re very different people.

Carter: I feel like you two are about to debate– I mean, have a… discussion about this.

Ridge: Yeah, we just– we don’t see eye to eye when it comes to our kids.

Carter: Right. And that’s my cue to leave.

Ridge: You don’t want to hear about parenting stuff?

Carter: No, I think I’m fine.

Ridge: You should have kids. Parenting never ends, Carter. It never ends.

Brooke: Oh, God.

Brooke: Okay, I– I don’t want to debate about our kids once again. Okay?

Ridge: Okay, so what do you want to do? Maybe make out a little? Show this room how it’s done?

Brooke: Yeah, we could… do a little of that.

Ridge: A little of that?

Brooke: Yeah.

Ridge: Good. ♪♪♪

R.J.: You know, even when I do move out of my parents’ house, I’m still gonna see them all the time.

Luna: Yeah, for sure. And you all get to see each other here at work every day. Which is amazing.

R.J.: Yeah, it’s the best. You know, moving back to L.A. was one of the smartest decisions I ever made. I wouldn’t change a thing. But I do have a new priority. And that’s getting even closer to you.

Carter: Hey, R.J., man, I– Ooh.

R.J.: Hey.  Twice in one day. That’s twice. That’s two times.

Carter: My bad, man. Your mom just told me about the first time.

R.J.: Really? Oh, she’s– she’s going around telling people.

Luna: That is just beyond embarrassing.

Carter: I’m just dropping off Eric’s numbers, okay? And– and hey, a little tip: next time, lock the door.

R.J.: Ah. ♪♪♪

Ridge: No, gracias. He’s– he’s doing a lot better. He’s getting better every day and hopefully he’ll be out of the hospital soon. That’s exactly what that means. We will see you in Milan in the spring. He– I– I will certainly tell him that. Listen, uh, Domenico, I gotta run and I will talk to you very soon. All right? Oh, me too. Ok, bye. Ciao.

Thomas: The Domenico, Domenico?

Ridge: Yeah, he was just checking on your granddad.

Thomas: Yeah, I look, I– I didn’t mean for you to get off the phone on my account.

Ridge: Just wrapping it up.

Thomas: Well, how is Granddad coming along?

Ridge: He’s– he’s getting better all the time. What’s going on with you? You walked in here, you had the weight of the world on your shoulders, what’s up?

Thomas: Yeah, I just, um… I was just talking to Hope and– And I– I– I feel like I– I just screwed it all up. ♪♪♪

Brooke: Hi, sweetheart. I’m sorry to stop by unannounced. But I saw that the lights were still on and I thought I’d come down and say good night to the kiddies.

Hope: They are actually not here right now, they’re with Katie.

Brooke: Oh, sorry I missed them. Well, I guess that would explain the flowers and the candles, and the wine. That’s quite the romantic setup. For Thomas? It’s still quite early. So, is Thomas here in the other room? Am I intruding?

Hope: No. No, it’s, uh, it’s fine. Actually, he’s– he’s, uh, left already.

Brooke: He left? Did you have an argument?

Hope: No, no, we did not have an argument.

Brooke: Honey, you’re my daughter and I know you very well. I can tell when something’s weighing on you. So why don’t you tell me what happened here tonight? Between you and Thomas? ♪♪♪

Luna: This is nice.

R.J.: I’ll just stay right here and never move.

Luna: I’m game. I love the way I feel in your arms.

R.J.: Me too.

Luna: Have you always been this sweet?

R.J.: Let’s just say you bring out the best in me.

Luna: They don’t make ’em like you anymore, R.J. You’re one of a kind.

R.J.: Same goes for you.

Luna: No, for real though. Like every new day I get to spend with you I like you even better than the day before. And the day before that. My feelings for you have just grown stronger. Watching how caring you are with your grandfather and seeing the way you treat the staff here. And the barista at our coffee place. You just have all the qualities I’ve ever wanted in a guy. You’re thoughtful and kind, sensitive.

R.J.: Well.

Luna: And you’re also pretty hot. I’ve never felt this way about anyone before.

R.J.: Neither have I. I feel the exact same way about you. ♪♪♪

Ridge: You all right?

Thomas: Yeah.

Ridge: And Hope?

Thomas: Yeah, she’s, uh, she’s Hope. She’s incredible as always. I keep thinking about her and how amazing she’s been. She’s always been so forgiving of me.

Ridge: Very impressive. She left the past in the past.

Thomas: Yeah, I just hope it continues in that direction.

Ridge: Why wouldn’t it?

Thomas: I don’t know. I– I guess, um… I’m falling more and more in love with her, you know? And I– I just wanna make sure that in– I don’t wanna do anything to mess it up.

Ridge: It sounds like a healthy perspective.

Thomas: Yeah, well, I’m trying to stay positive, you know, give her space.

Ridge: That’s all you can do. You know, keep your head on straight and do what you can and if it lines up then it’s meant to be, right?

Thomas: Sure. Yeah. Yeah. No, that– that helps. Um, you always give good advice. Thank you. I love you, you’re my son. And I love who you’ve become. You… I’m proud of you.

Thomas: That means a lot, especially coming from you. And talking about this. I know that– I know my relationship with Hope has… always been a little bit of a shock. Right?

Ridge: Shock or not, listen… if you’re happy, I’m happy.

Thomas: Wow. I mean, look, you– you might be the only one who feels that way ’cause it feels like, uh, I don’t know, everyone has something against our relationship, especially Brooke.

Brooke: Honey, I can’t help but be concerned. Did something happen? Did Thomas do something to you?

Hope: No, Mom. Nothing– nothing happened to me. Okay? Thomas loves me.

Brooke: Then why isn’t he here? I mean, obviously you set up this really nice, romantic evening for the two of you. What’s going on? What happened tonight?

Hope: We– we uh, had a… difficult conversation about some of the things in his past.

Brooke: Oh, yes. We are all very familiar with that time. It traumatized all of us, most importantly, you. But Thomas did say that he’s been improving and working on himself and… he’s a changed man. We all would really love to believe that.

Hope: I do. I believe him.

Brooke: But you can’t feel that comfortable with what happened in the past. I mean, I’m sure it would be very difficult for you to commit yourself to him.

R.J.: I can’t stop kissing you. You know, I think about you day and night. Especially at night, when I’m alone in my bed. Wishing you were there.

Luna: I think about you the same way.

R.J.: You do?

Luna: We need to be alone together. Please get a place of your own, soon.

Ridge: Well, don’t worry about Brooke. She’s just being a protective mother.

Thomas: You always say that.

Ridge: I always say that because it’s true. She’s not trying to sabotage your relationship. Right?

Thomas: Brooke is entitled to her opinion. Sure. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. But I don’t really care about anyone else’s opinion. All I care about is Hope’s opinion. Right? I– I want her to know how committed I am to her and how much she can trust me.

Ridge: And… she’s on board with that. I mean, she’s forgiven you. Right?

Thomas: She’s– she’s trying, you know, but– but she’s not going to forget everything from the past. Right? That’s impossible.

Ridge: Right, but she also knows how much work you’ve put in and she realizes that.

Thomas: Yeah. Look, I would– I would do anything for Hope.

Ridge: That’s how I feel about Brooke. It sounds like it’s real.

Thomas: Yeah. You know, I– I feel like I’ve shown her the kind of love that she deserves. I’ve– I’ve told the truth about every mistake I’ve ever made. I’ve– I’ve let her know that, well, she has all the cards. Right? I put them all on the table. And she’s the only woman for me. There’d never be anybody else. I think I can give her the life she deserves.

Brooke: Well, it seems like you’ve developed feelings for Thomas. I won’t fight you on that, but I’m sure it’s gonna be hard for you to move past that chapter in your life. One that Thomas was a very big part of. So it would be best for you to… end it with him now.

Hope: I know you mean well, Mom. But I don’t intend on doing that.

Brooke: Honey, I want you to consider what’s best for you, what’s best for the children.

Hope: I have. And yes, Thomas has– he has made mistakes. He has done some regrettable things and he acknowledges that. But I mean, we haven’t we all messed up? I mean, I’m– I’m not perfect. None of us are. And Lord knows I’m the queen of giving people nd, rd and th, th chances. But what makes this different, Mom, is that it’s not just empty words and platitudes. He’s done the work. And so I’m not just hoping that maybe he’s going to transform. I know he has. He’s backed it up with action.

Brooke: Oh, okay. Um, you’re acting a little strange. I mean, you’re not really yourself right now, honey. You’re very uneasy. And if you don’t want to tell me what’s going on. That’s okay. I just want you to trust your instincts. If there’s anything that you doubt about Thomas, anything at all, please…

Hope: I don’t doubt Thomas. I think– I think he is an exceptional designer. I think he has stepped up and proven himself as a father. And, Mom… He loves me unconditionally. Which is all I have ever hoped for. So I know you hate to hear that, but at some point, Mom, you are going to have to stop fighting this, please. Is there any part of you that can learn to accept Thomas and me? Because who knows… what our future might– might be? ♪♪♪
