Luna: You can’t be serious.

RJ: I– I mean, well, it’s possible. Come on, the magical night that the two of them spent together, the fact that Bill and Poppy are quite fond of each other? I mean, I don’t– I don’t think it’s a stretch to think they hooked up.

Luna: Okay, that much I’ll buy. But the other thing? What you’re suggesting is– is– is crazy.

RJ: Well, it might be. I don’t know. It might not. Come on, what if Bill Spencer is your father?

Bill: Well, thanks for drawing these up, Diana, and for personally bringing them by. Standard lease agreement. Pretty boilerplate, right?

Diana: You’re welcome. You want to add or take out something specific?

Bill: Nope, it’s good.

Diana: I’m surprised. I thought you might keep it for yourself. Can’t beat the location. A romantic setting, impressing the ladies.

Bill: Yeah, but, um… there’s only one lady that I’m interested in impressing.

Poppy: I didn’t realize I had that effect on you.

Bill: From the day I first laid eyes on you.

Poppy: It seems like a lifetime ago.

Bill: Well, in some ways it is. But like I told you, from the day you walked in this restaurant, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about you. I haven’t forgotten, Poppy.

Poppy: I haven’t forgotten either.

Bill: I can’t stop thinking about you. And– and I feel like there are forces at work that– that brought us back into each other’s lives for a reason.

Poppy: Well, I don’t know about forces, but things definitely happen for a reason.

Bill: I wanna spend more tie with you. I wanna get to know you better. I wanna get to know your daughter better. I want you to meet my son. I mean, Liam is really excited to meet you, and… Well, he just kept reiterating that… we’ve been brought back togethr for a reason.

Poppy: I think he may be right.

Bill: Thank you. Take care.

Luna: I can’t believe the thought of Bill Spencer being my father is crossing your mind.

RJ: Well, obviously, I don’t know. But, Luna, think about it. Your mom and Bill, they haven’t forgot each other after years. And, you know, the connection that they share is obvious. I mean, everyone can see the connection that they share. And they both talk about the night that they spent together as really special to both of them. And plus, there’s the math. You know, the math checks out with how old you are and when the two of you met. I just– I don’t think it’s that big of a stretch.

Ginge: Sorry to interrupt.

RJ: Hey, Ginge. Uh, I’m like right in the middle of something.

Ginge: Bill Spencer.

Luna: What?

Ginge: Bill Spencer. I’m covering phones. He’s calling for you, RJ.

RJ: Thank you, Ginge. Appreciate it, man. He’s probably just calling to talk to me about the beach house or something like that. Hey, Bill. Uh, sorry to keep you waiting.

Bill: Not a problem. I didn’t have your cell, so I called the main number. Hope I’m not pulling you away from anything too important.

RJ: No, no, no. I… Actually, we were, uh… we were just talking about you.

Bill: Oh, well, that could be trouble.

RJ: Yeah, yeah. Just, you know, uh, about the beach house, how excited I am to move in. Well, you’re a lucky man and this happens to be your lucky day. I know that Wyatt already gave you the keys, but if you can drop by over here, we can get the lease signed off and you can officially move in.

RJ: Okay. I’ll be right over. Thank you. That was, uh, about going over and officially signing the lease. Yay. And, you know, maybe while I’m there, I’ll suss out Bill about your mom and what he and her shared all those years ago. Hey, listen. I’m not trying to push you or anything, all right? I’m just letting you know what I was thinking. Bill and Poppy share a history and I don’t know, the timeline adds up with how old you are and when they met. Maybe it’s time.

Luna: Time?

RJ: Time for you to ask your mom if Bill Spencer is your dad.

RJ: I’m just saying is that this timeline adds up. Your mom and Bill met over years ago at the Golden Gate Music Festival. They instantly have this huge connection. They spend this magical night together, and for whatever reason, something happened and they went their separate ways.

Luna: Well, probably would’ve been different if they lived in the same city.

RJ: Yeah. Yeah, I’m willing to bet it would’ve been. Would’ve been different for all of you, especially you.

Luna: If Bill is my father, you mean.

RJ: It’s just, Luna, there’s this– there’s this wistfulness when you talk to me about your father and… I just think that this is your opportunity to change that. Look, I– I– I have to go. I have to go meet Bill to sign this lease. Um, but just think about it. And, you know, your mom, she has the answer. And I– I really do, I think that you should ask her for the truth. And I love you. And, um, I’m just doing all this because I just I wanna help you find the answers to the questions that have plagued you.

Luna: Bill Spencer doesn’t seem like a craft fair type.

Poppy: All right, fine. It was at a music festival, but decades ago.

RJ: I don’t think it’s a stretch to think they hooked u. Come on, what if– what if Bill Spencer is your father? Luna, think about it. Your mom and Bill, they haven’t forgot each other after years. Maybe it’s time.

Luna: Time? Time for you to ask your mom… if Bill Spencer is your dad.

Luna: Hi. Um, are you busy?

Poppy: No, I’m good. What’s up?

Luna: I, um, I’d– I’d really like to see you.

Poppy: Wow, I’m popular today.

Luna: What?

Poppy: Nothing. Private joke.

Luna: Um, do you think you could– you could come over to Forrester?

Poppy: Is something wrong?

Luna: I don’t know. Maybe something’s right. Um, but only you can tell.

Poppy: I’ll be right there.

RJ: Wow. I gotta be honest with you, Bill, I still can’t believe I’m actually going to live here.

Bill: Ridge and Brooke okay with you moving out?

RJ: Yeah. Well… my dad’s not exactly excited that of all people I could be renting from, I’m renting from you. But I talked to him. I told him, you know, this is my life. It’s my money. So, you know, eventually, he– he saw things my way.

Bill: Good. I did consider keeping the place. I mean, even my– my realtor pointed out that, you know, this is tough to beat if you’re looking for a romantic setting.

RJ: Hm.

Bill: So, I’m sure that you and Luna are going to enjoy it.

RJ: Yeah. Uh, also speaking of, uh, I’m sorry about the whole embarrassing encounter the other day with you and Poppy and Luna and me.

Bill: Oh, no, no, no. That was nothing. I mean, it had the potential to be awkward, but it was no big deal.

RJ: Yeah. So, um… you– you and Poppy, you two are seeing each other?

Bill: I’m working on it.

RJ: Well, it must be wild, you know, to rediscover each other after so many years, right?

Bill: I see you know a bit about our history.

RJ: I mean, I just– I just heard about the basics. You met at a music festival, Bay Area, right?

Bill: Yeah. Uh… Uh, Poppy was– was dancing, and she just stopped me cold in my tracks. I mean, she made quite a– a first impression.

RJ: Huh.

Bill: I had to know her.

RJ: Well, what’s it been, Bill, like years, right?

Bill: A bit more.

RJ: Huh. Well, then, you must have made quite an impression on her for her to remember you after that much time, right?

Bill: Well, all I’ll say is that it was a very special night. And what about you and Luna? You seemed very close when I saw you here.

RJ: I– I’m crazy about her.

Bill: I think that Luna’s heart is in good hands.

RJ: And what about Poppy’s?

Bill: I want the very best for her. And, yes, that includes a relationship with me. You know, I’m– I’m… not one to really believe in things being fated, but… in this case, I do think that Poppy and I were– were drawn together for a reason. Both then and now.

Poppy: Hey, I got here as fast as I could.

Luna: Oh, um, you didn’t– you didn’t have to rush.

Poppy: Yeah, but you sounded really intense on the phone, like something was going on. My mind was just racing on the way over here. Was it your Aunt Li again? Did something happen between you and RJ?

Luna: No, no, he– he couldn’t be more wonderful or more supportive.

Poppy: I’m so happy you guys found each other.

Luna: Yeah, me too.

Poppy: Well, you know, it wouldn’t have happened if you weren’t courageous enough to follow your dream. I’m so proud of you. It isn’t easy to leave a life that you know and venture out into the world. But you did it. And you made it work. You’re an inspiration.

Luna: I mean, any courage that I have, I got from you. You’ve– you’ve never been afraid to live life on your own terms and be exactly who you are. Whether that person conformed to societal norms or not.

Poppy: Usually not. unapologetic self-acceptance that prompted you to dance at that music festival where you met Bill. It’s what made you so strong and brave enough to have me and embrace your role as a single mother.

Poppy: Well, you and I didn’t need anybody else but each other, hm?

Luna: Well, each other is kind of the only option we had. Um… RJ’s got me thinking about something.

Poppy: Okay.

Luna: It’s about my father.

RJ: It’s a nice thought that, you know, Poppy’s in your life for a reason. Any idea, um, why she’s been in your life now, not once but twice?

Bill: That’s what I’m trying to figure out.

RJ: You don’t know?

Bill: Does anyone really know? I– I mean, I have a few thoughts about it.

RJ: Yeah? Yeah, it’s been fun getting to know Poppy ’cause she’s– she’s interesting, right?

Bill: To say the least.

Poppy: Yeah, she’s a really cool mom.

Bill: I told Poppy that of course I want to get to know her better, but that I want to get to know Luna better as well. As I said, she strikes me as a remarkable young woman.

RJ: Yeah. Well, you’re right. She– she is absolutely remarkable. And, uh, the thing with Luna is the more you get to know her, the more, uh, impressed you become with her.

Poppy: You asked me here to talk about your father?

Luna: Yeah.

Poppy: Why? What about him?

Luna: Well, you know, whenever I bring him up, you either shut down or change the subject.

Poppy: You’re curious about your father?

Luna: RJ and I have been talking.

Poppy: You discussed this with RJ?

Luna: Yeah.

Poppy: Okay, well, I mean, I guess I’m not surprised. You guys are getting closer all the time. It makes sense that you would open up to him.

Luna: Well, he’s just– He’s been trying to help me sort out all these things that I’m feeling and all these things that I’m thinking. And I just want to be clear that he did not push me into this at all.

Poppy: Push you into what?

Luna: Trying to figure out who my father is. But– but then he started asking questions and started putting the pieces together.

Poppy: Pieces? What kind of pieces?

Luna: When Bill approached us at Il Giardino, he was positive that you two knew each other. And I don’t know what your reaction was about. I don’t know if– if you really didn’t remember him at the time or if you didn’t want to deal with it in that moment, but he remembered you. And he even brought up San Francisco, and he was right. You guys figured out that you two met at the music festival at Golden Gate Park. I mean, isn’t that amazing? You guys spent one night together like– like something years ago, and you guys still remember each other? But that just makes me think the connection you two shared might have been, like, crazy intense, right? And so RJ did the math and… the time that you and Bill met and the age that I am.

Poppy: Luna, what are you saying?

Luna: Look… I really don’t want you to take offense to this, okay? I love you so much, Mom. And I love our bond, and I would– I would not change that for the entire world. I mean, I’m in awe of you. You raised me all by yourself and you somehow made a way to make every single day so much fun. But there’s a piece of my story that’s missing. So, I need to know the truth, so please just… be honest with me. Is it Bill? Is Bill Spencer my father?
