Steffy: This is a nice surprise.

Finn: You think you’re gonna be working late?

Steffy: Mm… not anymore.

Finn: It’s– it’s too bad we can’t sneak away when you come to the hospital.

Steffy: You know how much I’d love that? Mm-hmm.

Finn: Yeah.

Steffy: I’m so happy you’re here.

Finn: Yeah.

Steffy: How’s my, uh… how’s my grandfather?

Finn: Well, we’ve run some more tests and we’ll know more about his long-term prognosis soon.

Steffy: Oh, gosh, I am just so, so grateful. I mean, yes, I’M… I’m still nervous.

Finn: I know.

Steffy: Granddad’s the cornerstone of our family. But you saved his life.

Ridge: There he is.

Finn: Hey.

Ridge: The man of the hour. I feel like I haven’t said it enough. I just– I– we owe you… a great debt. You– you’re, um, what you did was amazing, and it just makes me realize how fleeting these moments are and how lucky we are to be here.

Steffy: Hey, are… what’s going on?

Ridge: Nothing. I’m all right. I’m just thanking him and, um… had a bit of a discussion with brooke about the usual thing.

Steffy: Let me guess. It’s about hope and thomas. Of course.

[ Sighs heavily ]

Zende: Wow. Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow. Now this… this is something special, rj.

Rj: Yeah, I’m feeling really good about it.

Luna: Yeah, it’s amazing.

Zende: You know that this is some of the most expensive real estate in the world?

Rj: Yeah, it’s probably why bill actually didn’t even want to get rid of it. I’m renting it from spencer, of all people, right?

[ Zende laughs ]

Zende: Yeah, I, uh, I doubt that dollar bill would be cutting you a deal on this. A multimillion dollar home in malibu? Now, granddad, he must have cut you a huge bonus for you to be able to swing this place. Oh, hold on a second. What am I saying? It’s not coming out of your pocket. Ridge and brooke are so happy to have their son back home, I’m sure they’re paying for it, aren’t they?

Luna: Hey, you guys are family, and I hate to see this tension or rivalry or whatever it is.

Zende: There’s no rivalry. I’ve already made a name for myself in this business. You’re just starting out. But it must be nice having the great ridge forrester giving you a boost.

Ridge: It’s okay. Just brooke and I had a bit of a difference of opinion.

Steffy: About hope and thomas? What? Something happened?

Finn: Something bad?

Ridge: No. It’s not– well, I don’t know. It’s not bad. It’s, uh… it was unexpected.

Steffy: Oh, great. Now, I’m afraid to ask.

Ridge: Your brother proposed.

[ Thomas chuckles ]

Thomas: That was amazing.

Hope: I’ve, uh… I’ve never felt this way before. I don’t know what it is, but I just… I can’t get enough of you.

[Coughing] I– of c me such a hard t

Zende: Don’t misunderstand me, rj. I’m proud to be a part of this family. I know you are, too.

Rj: Then why are you giving me such a hard time about it, zende?

Zende: Because I don’t think you realize how lucky you are.

Rj: How lucky I am? I– of course I do. I do.

Zende: Look, man, I wasn’t born into all of this the way you were. My life could have turned out very differently. I was left alone at an orphanage in africa. I was a scared, helpless little kid. I had no one. I lost both my parents. Until kristen, your aunt, adopted me. She has been a wonderful mother. She and my father, they love me. They support everything I’ve done. Always have.

Luna: And they’re both designers too.

Zende: Yes, they’re great ones. But they don’t live in L.A. My mother is not here to have my back the way ridge has yours. Your parents run the company. Brooke and ridge are fashion royalty, and you’re the little prince.

Luna: No one treats rj like that, zende. I mean, he works just as hard as–

Zende: I know. I know he works, okay? And honestly, you guys did tear it up in preparation for the fashion showdown, but that isn’t the point I’m trying to make. I’m trying to make you understand where I’m coming from. I’m older than you. I have more experience. I’ve studied design for years. You’re just a couple months into it, learning at the knee of your dad and granddad. Be real, man. If you were in my shoes, you’d be frustrated too.

Finn: And so, thomas had the ring in his pocket?

Ridge: Apparently, he proposed right in the office.

Steffy: That is so romantic.

Ridge: Oh, come on.

Finn: It’s a good thing hope is at least giving it some thought.

Steffy: Oh, she’s not gonna forget about it because it’s a necklace with a ring on it wrapped around her neck.

Ridge: Steffy…

Steffy: So cool.

Ridge: It’s a symbol of his commitment. Give him a break.

Steffy: Symbol of his commitment? Really? How long is this gonna take?

Ridge: I don– he’s gonna give her time so she can make up her own mind. That’s nice.

Steffy: Make up her own mind?

Ridge: Yes.

Steffy: Really? Okay, what if hope says no? What’s that gonna do to thomas? All of the progress he’s made? I mean, she has him just holding on. He’s like stuck in limbo. And I don’t think that’s a very healthy place to be.

Thomas: I’ve never experienced anything like this before. You, your intensity, your passion. You just continue to surprise me.

Hope: I don’t know. I think you bring it out in me.

Thomas: Mm.

Hope: Mm-hmm. This. I don’t know, it’s like it’s something… wild, uninhibited. And… you have a spark and it just ignites all of my desire. Ah mornings!

Steffy: Look, I’m always gonna have thomas’s back. But is this proposal a good idea? Or is it gonna throw him off track?

Finn: Well, you know where I stand. I’m just trying to be as supportive and understanding as I can be.

Ridge: Yeah, and sometimes that means taking a step back, letting grown-ups make their own mistakes.

Finn: He’s– he’s your brother, he’s your son, of course you want him to work this out, but I can’t help but feel for hope after everything that thomas has put her through in the past.

Ridge: Okay. He’s not the same man anymore. He worked hard. He– he deserves love. He’s– he’s worthy of it.

Steffy: I agree a thousand percent. But with hope?

[ Thomas and hope sighing ]

Hope: Wow. I don’t understand what has gotten into me. I can’t get enough of you.

[ Thomas chuckles ]

Rj: I see your perspective, zende, okay? And I just want to let you know that I respect the amount of passion that you have for design and for our company. And I get it. I see what you’re saying, right? You don’t want to be overlooked.

Zende: Or underestimated.

Rj: Or underestimated. Zende, you don’t have to worry about that, man. But I’m gonna give your designs a look, okay? I’ll probably learn a thing or two from them. All right? I will, uh… I’ll give them a look tomorrow morning.

Zende: Tomorrow morning? Because…

Rj: Yeah, I have plans with luna tonight.

Zende: Oh. Okay then. I look forward to hearing from you… tomorrow morning.

Rj: Hey, zende. I mean it. I get why you’re– you’re frustrated, okay? But luna’s right, dude. We’re family and we used to be really close. And I hope we can be again.

Zende: Have a nice night. Bye, luna.

Rj: Think he heard me?

Luna: I’m sorry. I know how much you hate being at odds with him.

Rj: Yeah. Well, there’s only one person I’m focused on tonight. Attention medicare beneficiaries…

Rj: Now, if there’s, uh… no more interruptions.

[ Luna laughs ]

Luna: Um… not yet.

Rj: What do you think? Think we broke the curse?

Luna: Oh, we’re not cursed. We’re just, um… we’re popular.

Rj: Tonight, I want you all for myself.

Luna: We’ve waited a long time for this. All my life.

Rj: Yeah. I want it to be a beautiful night. I want it to be perfect for you.

Luna: I want it to be a beautiful, perfect night too.

Steffy: I agree with you, dad. Thomas has changed, but he deserves to be with someone who truly appreciates him and loves him. Hope can’t give him that.

Finn: And you can’t blame her for being hesitant. So much has happened in the past.

Ridge: Let’s not worry about what happened in the past. Let’s just leave that behind us. Can we do that? Let’s worry about what’s happening now.

Steffy: Okay. Thomas is having a great time with hope, but maybe– maybe he should be with someone who gets excited when he puts a ring on their finger.

Ridge: How do you know she’s not excited? Listen, I get it. You’re looking out for your brother, you don’t want him to get hurt.

Steffy: He could, dad.

Ridge: Of course! We could all get hurt. That’s what happens. It’s– it’s love. There’s no guarantees. That’s why we gotta be positive. Look at the good things, not the bad things. It’s too easy to do that. Look at you guys. You went through a lot. You’re still going through it, but you’re good. You’re better than you were. Am I right? I’m with brooke. We’ve had our ups and downs for sure, but we’re still here. If your brother wants to find– if he wants to find some happiness, let him have it. If he thinks he can find it with hope, let him try.

Thomas: You’re so beautiful. This is what I want. All the time. Just to be with you, to love you, to touch you, kiss you.

[ Thomas sighing ] You say you don’t understand this. That’s ’cause you never had this before. Never been with a man who wants to be with you and only you. Who cherishes you. Someone you can trust. Someone who’s given you his heart. ‘Cause I have. I’ve given you my heart ’cause I trust you. And you can trust me too. You can trust me with your heart because I cherish it. I’m never gonna hurt it. You’ve experienced that pain before. But you never have to again. Hope… you can have that for the rest of your life. All you have to do is take this ring… off this necklace, put it on your finger. Say you’ll marry me, hope. Say you’ll be my wife.
