Eric: That’s enough now.

Donna: Oh, stop. Here’s your napkin.

Katie: And here’s the paper. I got the business section. The funnies are right behind that ’cause I know that laughter is the best medicine.

Eric: Laughter? I thought that was a good stiff martini.

Donna: Oh, boy. Well, I got you some pineapple juice instead. Something you’ve been craving since the hospital.

Eric: Thank you. Yeah. It’s good. Thank you.

Donna: You’re welcome. Although I can’t wait for happy hour.

Katie: Oh… Man, he never stops.

Donna: No, he doesn’t. But that’s also why he’s with us today. You never stopped fighting, did you? Despite all the odds. It’s because I had all that help of yours. Thank you. The two of you by my side. Thank you. You never gave up on me. You are my rock.

Ridge: No doubt about it.

Katie: Oh?

Ridge: Dad’s back better than ever in Donna’s arms.

Liam: Wow. So, Wyatt actually did it, huh? He moved out.

Bill: He told you he was thinking about it, right?

Liam: Thinking about it. He said he was thinking about it and we talked about that, but that’s one thing. I didn’t think he’d actually go through with it.

Bill: Well, he– he did. He rented out my place.

Liam: I mean, is… is he gonna stick around L.A. or is he just like headed off to parts unknown?

Bill: I don’t know. I don’t even think he knows. I mean, my preference is that he stays put.

Liam: Well, mine is too ’cause I would– I would miss the hell out of him, but I… And I guess, hey, sometimes you need a new adventure. Not unlike yourself.

Bill: Me?

Liam: Yeah, you. What, is this– is this new woman in your life not a new adventure?

Luna: I still can’t believe it.

RJ: Me either.

Luna: I mean, we’re at your new beach house, we think that we’re finally alone, so we’re kissing.

RJ: And then you hear something outside and you look out and who do you see? Your mother.

Luna: My mother. I mean, how crazy is that?

RJ: You think she was spying on us?

Luna: No. My mom would never.

RJ: Yeah, you’re right. It’s not Poppy’s style.

Luna: But she was acting a little bit weird.

RJ: Yeah, she was acting a little weird. Maybe it was because she ran into her daughter and her boyfriend making out.

Luna: No way. No, no. My mom’s not a prude like that.

RJ: Oh, yeah? Well, what if I started kissing you right now and she happened to walk in?

Luna: It’s not gonna happen. Kiss away.

RJ: All right.

Poppy: Oh, sorry. I can come back.

Luna: No, Mom. No. You are not going anywhere until I find out exactly what you and Bill were doing at the beach house.

Ridge: It’s an incredible feeling walking through this door knowing you’re gonna be here where you belong.

Brooke: So, how’s he doing?

Katie: Well, between you and me, Eric’s being a bit of a pill.

Ridge: What?

Eric: Yeah, well, this one is insisting that I have pineapple juice and trying to keep me away from the martinis.

Ridge: Okay. Your health comes first.

Eric: Not you too. Look, in spite of the restrictions, I’m very happy to be home With my beautiful Donna.

Bill: Butting into my love life, are you?

Liam: Did you just call it a love life? So it’s a love life now? Explain. Okay, unpack that for me. What does that mean?

Bill: Uh, well, among other things, Poppy and I had our second date yesterday. And wound up here, in fact. Liam: Oh, why’d you bring her here?

Bill: Hello?

Liam: Oh, well, oh, yeah, no. Okay. All right. Sure. Yeah. Uh, how, uh… How did it go?

Bill: Uh, well, it actually got cut short. Through no fault of mine or Poppy’s.

Liam: Dad, I don’t know what that means.

Bill: You’re not supposed to.

Liam: Wow. Okay. Okay. Uh… Are you, um… Are you gonna see her again? ‘Cause you seem a bit fascinated with the lady.

Bill: Uh, I am fascinated. And when you meet her, you’ll understand why.

Poppy: Bill wanted to show me the beach house, and we didn’t realize that RJ had already rented from Bill’s son.

RJ: Yeah. I gotta admit though, it was– it was kind of funny, you know. Us surprising you, you and Bill surprising us.

Luna: Well, you know, what’s surprising, not to mention amazing, is that out of all of the men in Los Angeles, my mom is seeing Bill Spencer.

Li: What? You and Bill Spencer?

Liam: I mean, I gotta say that the timing is pretty remarkable, right? years since you had this, uh, this night together, and not only do you remember it this vividly, but Poppy’s now reappeared in your life. I just, I’m just saying it sounds like fate to me or kismet or whatever.

Bill: Yeah, look, I’m not one to really give much to fate and kismet, but I do have to admit it does feel like something… otherworldly has drawn Poppy and me back together.

Liam: Well, listen, just wait, ’cause time will tell if there’s a reason you two found each other again.

Li: I want answers, Penelope. I heard you speaking to a man on the phone the other day. You called him Bill. You’re actually seeing Bill Spencer.

RJ: Li, if you want to talk to Steffy, she’s in a meeting right now.

Li: This is far more important.

Luna: Stop it, Aunt Li. This is not the time or place. Please just– just go.

Li: Not until I’ve made something very clear to your mother.

Poppy: It’s okay, Luna. I appreciate your support, but I’d like to talk to my sister alone. It’s fine.

Li: You are without a doubt the most shameless person. Have you no shred of decency?

Poppy: Not according to you.

Li: Bill Spencer, one of the wealthiest men in Los Angeles. You’ve already set your sights on him. did it, Penelope? To find your next sugar daddy?

Donna: Okay, don’t you make me cry saying things like that. That’s not fair.

Eric: Like what? Like how beautiful you are? And like how I– I couldn’t have got through any of this without you? And I… I don’t deserve you.

Ridge: You know what Dad asked you to do to keep a secret would have broken most people.

Brooke: But not you. You stayed strong. You knew that’s what he needed.

Katie: Your strength, your support, your love.

Eric: Your love, most of all. Your… standing vigil by my bed every day, every night. Holding my hand, telling me to fight. without you.

Donna: I would never give up on you, Eric, because you are my everything.

Eric: I’m the luckiest man alive to have you by my side.

Liam: Listen, I– I– I know that it hasn’t been easy for you and you were trying to reunite with Katie there, and that didn’t really pan out, and yeah, I get it.

Bill: I– I can’t blame her. All the painful history and everything I put her through. I understand why she’s guarded.

Liam: Poppy isn’t, right? I mean, also, I mean, the way it sounds, it’s like no time has been lost at all between the two of you.

Bill: Yeah, more or less. Yeah.

Liam: Well…

Bill: What?

Liam: Well, you may not want to call it fate, but… it’s totally fate.

Luna: Can you believe my Aunt Li? Just walking in here and attacking my mom like that?

RJ: I know. I know. She didn’t even let Poppy explain.

Luna: Well, she never does. I mean, my mom could literally never do anything right in her eyes.

RJ: Do you think we should’ve left the two of them alone? Was that smart?

Luna: I don’t know. I mean, my mom insisted.

RJ: Hey, I’m… I’m really sorry that, you know, you have to go through all of this.

Luna: I’m sorry. I’m sorry that my Aunt Li keeps coming in here and embarrassing herself and our family, just lashing out that way.

RJ: Well, I– I’d be remiss if I didn’t say that my family has had one or two or half a billion dozen arguments here at Forrester. It’s– it’s okay. Don’t worry about it.

Luna: What’s not okay is Aunt Li thinking that my mom has to justify her involvement with Bill Spencer.

Poppy: It isn’t what you’re thinking.

Li: Oh, it most certainly is. I know you sister, dear. This is classic Penelope Nozawa.

Poppy: Will you just hear me out?

Li: I don’t have to. I’ve seen this kind of thing happen repeatedly with you.

Poppy: I… Bill and I have a history. It happened years and years ago, and a lot has happened since then, but the night we had was just beautiful. And it’s something that neither of us has ever forgotten. Oh, my God. You slept with the man. You slept with Bill Spencer.

Donna: You’re the kindest, sweetest man I know. I mean, to be part of your life, to share in your world, it… There aren’t even words for me to describe how grateful I am for that. And when I thought that, uh, I was gonna lose you… the only thing in this world I wanted more was time. Just another day with you, another night with you. And now we have it. We were given the gift of time. And there’s not gonna be a moment that goes by that I take it for granted because we have each other again. And that’s the only thing in the world that matters to me. Will ever matter.

Katie: Guys, if you keep this up, we’re all gonna be basket cases.

Brooke: Yeah, I’m okay. Just, you know me. I’m just a sucker for this. I mean, listening to everything that they’ve been through the last few months… it’s crazy. It’s also beautiful. So, it proves my point. Love conquers all. The things that Donna said to Eric and what Eric said to her, it’s just… That’s what brought him home. Brought him home to you, to my sister.

Luna: I just really feel for my mom. Like, sure, she comes off like she doesn’t have a care in the world, but when I was growing up, things were really hard for her. And this was something that Aunt Li knew about, but instead of being supportive and understanding–

RJ: She’s just judgmental.

Luna: Yeah, and she obviously still is. Why can’t she just love my mom for the way she is?

RJ: The way you do.

Luna: Exactly. And look, I’m not saying that my mom is perfect, but for Aunt Li to call her a gold digger?

RJ: What?

Luna: Yeah. She called her a gold digger, which just could not be further from the truth. My mom has never depended on anyone for anything. She always made a way for herself.

RJ: So why won’t your aunt acknowledge that?

Luna: I don’t know. It does make me smile a little bit though.

RJ: Why?

Luna: Just thinking about how crazy Aunt Li’s gonna get when she realizes how close my mom and Bill actually are and that they have a little history together.

Li: I can’t believe it. No. Of course I can believe it. You slept with Bill Spencer.

Poppy: Years ago, Li. Hey, there was just an instant attraction.

Li: Right. So you just jumped in the sack with a man.

Poppy: Okay, what we had was beautiful and special and I won’t let you think otherwise.

Li: What I think is that whenever a rich, good-looking man is involved, you will stoop to anything.

Poppy: Hey, that is not what that was. Not that it’s any of your business.

Li: Listen to me, Penelope. I’m putting you on notice again. Bill Spencer is Kelly’s grandfather. I won’t allow you to sleep your way into that man’s world and into Finn and Steffy’s life! You and your loose morals. “It was special.” Please. One sordid, debaucherous night. No wonder Luna doesn’t know who her father is.

Liam: So, like, now what? Like, where do you go from here?

Bill: Well, we’re not heading to Vegas for a quickie wedding at the Elvis Chapel. Thank you. Thank you very much.

Liam: Uh, yeah, no, that’s not, uh, that’s not what I had in mind, but obviously you two are getting reacquainted.

Bill: You know, Liam, it’s strange, but in ways I feel like I already know everything I need to know about Poppy. She’s just very open and forthcoming person. And I can’t imagine that there is anything she would tell me that would change things between us.

Ridge: Well, this is nice. Quite a love fest we’re having here.

Eric: It is, isn’t it? I like it.

Brooke: We’re all so happy you’re home, Eric.

Katie: House hasn’t been the same without you.

Donna: Oh, nothing has been the same without you.

Ridge: I know I haven’t been the same. Do you know what it’s like having to put up a charade like this? For I don’t know how long, you know, pretending that we didn’t know there’s something wrong with you? It’s hard. And the girls are right. It’s amazing having you back. Our patriarch. You lead us in everything. Family, business… So much more to me than just Dad. You’re my best friend. And I love you. And I thought I was gonna lose you.

Eric: Well, you didn’t. And you’re not gonna lose me for a long, long time. I love you, son.

Ridge: I love you so much.

Eric: Fix me a martini, will you?

Donna: Doesn’t give up.
