Ridge: Yeah, all right. Meetings and phone calls, that’s my life now. Oh, I just got an idea. How about this? Let’s steal a few moments and have lunch at home.

Brooke: And by lunch, you mean…

Ridge: You know, have a nibble and…

[ Brooke giggling ] Another nibble, maybe?

Brooke: A nibble? Right now?

Steffy: Now, now, kids, this is a place of business.

[ Brooke giggling ]

Ridge: Busted by the boss.

Steffy: I’ll let you off the hook this time.

Ridge: Thank you.

Steffy: Uh, brooke, have you seen your daughter?

Brooke: Uh, no, not recently.

Steffy: I have a few words for hope.

Finn: You are special. Come on, you don’t need me to tell you that.

Hope: Well, it’S…

[ Clearing throat ] Still nice to hear, I guess.

Finn: You’ve been through a lot of big life changes recently.

Hope: Yeah, I mean, thomas breaking up with me and leaving for paris certainly… has been rough.

Finn: In the long run, I think losing thomas is a positive change.

Hope: You’re not a fan.

Finn: I think you’re better off without him. And not that you need a man by any means, but if a guy, lucky one, appears, you just… look, you deserve the best.

Deacon: Okay, all right. Good news, guys. We are gonna be packed to the gills tonight. Alexis, I need total efficiency across the board.

Alexis: Got it.

Deacon: Hunter, make sure the entire wait staff knows all the specials, including every ingredient, because, wait for it, we are gonna have a vip tonight whose name rhymes with… “glad fit”.

Alexis: Oh.

[ Chuckling ]

Deacon: All right, guys.

Sheila: You are so sexy when you’re barking orders. Yes, you. You are such a smoke show.

Deacon: You like that, huh?

Sheila: It just makes me want to put on my uniform.

Deacon: What do you say before you put that uniform on we get you in that wedding dress.

Sheila: You know, I have been thinking about our special day. Have you heard from finn? Did he say he’s coming to the wedding?

Deacon: Well, actually, you know, as of now, I haven’t heard from hope or finn about whether or not they’re coming. Come on. Why the long face? I mean, no news is good news, right? It doesn’t mean it’s an automatic no.

Sheila: No, but I wanted an automatic yes.

Deacon: Babe, I know you did. And you know, I talked to hope. I asked her to put in a good word. Maybe finn’s gonna surprise us. He’ll be my best man and watch his mom walk down the aisle.

Sheila: Wouldn’t that be amazing? That would be so wonderful. And it would mean so much to me, but… I think I’m fooling myself. I’m just getting my hopes up too high.

Deacon: Would you listen to me? No matter what happens, I want you to remember something. Finn loves you.

Sheila: And steffy hates me. It would drive her nuts if she even knew that finn wanted to come to our wedding.

Steffy: Well, I have to talk to hope.

Brooke: About what?

Steffy: Have you heard the ridiculous ideas deacon’s been planting in her head?

Ridge: About sheila.

Steffy: Hope’s starting to think that sheila is a changed woman.

Hope: Well, it’s incredibly nice of you to say all that.

Finn: I’m just stating facts.

Hope: Well, I’ve been given quite the ego boost, sir. So I thank you for that.

Finn: Well, hey, you know what? Any time.

[ Hope giggling ]

Hope: Really, I mean, it’s not often you get complimented by such a, I don’t know, accomplished, successful, smart, like… ow…

Finn: Headache back?

Hope: Ah, the headache never really left. It’s just been radiating.

Finn: Radiating? Well, you’ve been in pain since you’ve walked in here. Maybe I’m the cause of your headache.

[ Laughing ]

Hope: No, no.

Finn: Maybe.

Hope: It’s not you.

Finn: Not me? Don’t laugh though, okay? Because you’re gonna make it worse. I’m serious. You need to think about something– think about something serious. Be serious.

Hope: Serious.

Finn: Seriousness.

Hope: Serious. Just my…

Finn: Focus.

Hope: My serious face.

Finn: That’s your serious face? All right, don’t laugh. Don’t– don’t laugh. Wowwww…

Deacon: Don’t give up just yet.

Sheila: I’m not, but it’s a lot to ask of finn.

Deacon: What? Wanting to see his mother happy? To walk down the aisle? Who wouldn’t be proud of that?

Sheila: Oh, maybe a son with a wife who despises the said bride?

Deacon: That– that does complicate things a little bit.

Sheila: Yeah. I mean, it’s gonna cause trouble for finn, and once again, he gets caught in the middle.

Deacon: I don’t get why she can’t just give him a hall pass, you know? I mean, it’s like, no skin off her nose if he comes to the wedding, right? It’s not like you’re asking her to be here. It’s not like you’re asking the kids to come. No.

Sheila: Wouldn’t that be amazing though? Oh, picture hayes as the ring bearer, wearing a little suit like that.

Deacon: Please don’t get any ideas.

Sheila: Well, okay, I know. I know that that’s not gonna happen, but it would– it would really be life-changing for me if finn could be there.

Deacon: I know.

Sheila: Well, tell me, honey. Did hope say anything? Did she say that finn said anything?

Deacon: No. Let’s hope he’s digging out his tux right now, okay?

Sheila: Yeah, if only.

Deacon: Hey, miracles happen. Baby, I thought I’d lost you. I thought you were gone, and here you are getting ready to marry the man of your dreams. Huh? Come on. Seriously, I’m just kidding. Come on. But I mean, you know, who knows? Hope might show up. She might be your maid of honor. If that happens… finn might follow.

Sheila: You are the man of my dreams.

Steffy: Finn needs to stay away from sheila.

Ridge: Yes, he does.

Steffy: And the only person who thinks this relationship is normal is hope.

Brooke: I highly doubt that.

Steffy: No, brooke, you need to get through to your daughter. She can’t cut any slack to sheila, okay? Sheila is extremely dangerous.

Ridge: I agree.

Brooke: Well, I know that hope wants to be closer to her father. But now that he’s involved with sheila…

Ridge: And what is the reason for that, anyway?

Steffy: Okay, whatever the reasons, whatever the excuses, I don’t want hope to try to influence finn. Now, she needs to stay away from him.

Hope: Well, uh, you called it. Because my head is throbbing now, probably from all the laughing.

Finn: Well, yeah. Do you want some more pressure point therapy?

Hope: No, no. I don’t want to take away from your other patients. Like, only if you had the time.

Finn: It’s fine. It’s fine, I’m actually on a break right now.

Hope: Really? Because I mean, it really… I mean, it did help earlier.

Finn: Are you okay if I really, like, get up in there? Because I think the main culprit might be right in this area. Like, people don’t realize how much tension we carry in our spine.

Hope: Well, in that case, sir, I give you my blessing. Feel free to dig an elbow in there. Just, whatever to please relieve this headache.

Finn: I’m gonna start off gently, all right? And we’ll see if that works.

Hope: All right. That works, too.

Finn: Let’s see. Oh, yeah. Yeah, you’re really tense. Which makes sense, because the musculoskeletal system is highly intricate. And all these muscles and nerves are interconnected. So, a stiff neck can cause the jaw and facial fascia to become tight, which… often leads to headaches. Look, either way, I think the underlining factor here, hope, is stress. And everything that you’ve got going on in your life. How’s that? That feeling better?

Hope: Yeah. It’s definitely helping. Depression is a journey.

Sheila: You know, on the day finn got married, it’s the first time we had seen each other since he was a baby. And now, to think that he might be in my wedding.

Deacon: That would definitely be a full circle moment, wouldn’t it?

Sheila: Could I be so lucky?

Deacon: I want you to close your eyes. Come on, do it for me. Close your eyes. I want you to visualize finn standing next to us at the altar.

Sheila: Damn, you know, I… I am trying. But I can only see steffy’s face with a big-ass scowl on it.

Brooke: What are you implying, not wanting hope around finn?

Steffy: Look, we all know that finn’s been struggling. He does have these complex feelings for his mother.

Ridge: Well, there shouldn’t be any complex feelings there, though.

Steffy: I get that, dad. I get that. I hate it, too. But he does have them. He has this tie to his mother.

Brooke: I’m sure finn feels caught in the middle.

Ridge: There is no gray area. It’s either your kids and your wife or the woman who tried to kill her.

Steffy: You know what? If hope wants to be besties with sheila, go ahead. Have at it. But do not drag my husband into this.

Finn: This might relieve some pressure. You need to… take time for yourself, hope, take care of yourself.

Hope: Okay, doctor. I will follow your orders.

Finn: I’m serious. All this talk about self-care, it’s– it’s crucial. Whether it’s a hot bath, meditation, a massage. We need to find ways to reduce the stress in our life. Otherwise, it can have negative effects on our health. And it can manifest into pain, like, you know, migraines.

Hope: Hmm. Well, I… definitely think you’re right about the stress levels. It hasn’t been easy since douglas left the country with his father. I mean, it… has taken a toll on me, even though I’m not really letting on to that. And now, with thomas’ absence at the company, there’s a lot of uncertainty around hope for the future.

Finn: Yeah, he was your lead designer. I’m sure there’s a big void.

Hope: No, huge. And then, sprinkle my divorce with liam on top of it all.

Finn: Yeah, it’s just… yeah, it’s too much all at once.

Hope: Yeah. Honestly, I, um… I’ve really been struggling. I think I’ve just been hiding it really well.

Finn: Hm. Sorry to hear that.

Hope: Yeah.

Finn: And now you have our parents’ wedding to worry about.

[ Hope laughing ] Are you thinking about going?

Hope: I mean, I want to discuss it with my mother first and hear what she has to say about it, but… I am considering it, just… knowing how much it means to my father. But please know, I haven’t told anyone about it. Not even steffy, so… what are you thinking? Which way are you leaning?

Finn: What am I thinking? Um… yeah, now you’re gonna give me a headache. Um… as much as I’d like to be there and support them and be deacon’s best man, I have to put steffy’s feelings first. It’s too much for her. There’s no way she’d be cool with it.

Hope: Yeah.

Finn: Any improvement?

Hope: Much better. Thank you. Why are you looking at me like that?

Finn: I was just thinking about how perfect it is.

Hope: What? Your name.

Hope: Hope?

Finn: Yeah, I mean, it’s– it’s everything you embody. Hope for the future, hope for– for everyone. Even the lost, misguided souls.

Hope: Well, you are all about hope too, even though it’s not your name. What with taking care of those in need, being a doctor and all.

Finn: Yeah, I guess you’re right. Sounds like we got more in common than we thought. I should give deacon an answer, though. I’m sure he’s been waiting.

Hope: Yes, but I also get that you are in a tough position, so if you can’t say yes, I totally understand.

Finn: I have to put my wife first.

Hope: That’s the way it should be. Steffy is really, really lucky to have such a loving man in her life. (Noel) did you know it’s possible

Ridge: You can get through to hope. I know you can.

Steffy: Yeah, you have to talk some sense into hope.

Brooke: Sweetheart!

Steffy: Speak of the devil.

Hope: Uh… what did I just walk in on?

Brooke: Um… steffy and ridge were just expressing some concerns they have.

Hope: About?

Steffy: You.

Brooke: They think maybe you might have warmed up to the idea of sheila.

[ Hope clearing throat ]

Hope: Warmed up?

Brooke: Well, have you? Apparently, you came face to face with sheila. You had quite a shock.

Hope: Yes, so much so that I fainted because I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. Um, but it turns out my dad was right. He wasn’t crazy. He was right about sheila.

Steffy: Okay, deacon was right about one thing. Sheila’s alive. But he’s not the best judge of character. And sheila has him wrapped around her finger. So of course, yeah, he’s gonna believe that she’s changed, when she should really be rotting in prison. I mean, come on, you know that, right? You know how psycho she is, right?

[ Hope clearing throat ] Oh, my god. Oh, my god, they’ve actually gotten to you.

Brooke: Honey, you can’t listen to them. You can’t let your father influence you like that.

Steffy: You can’t show that woman any mercy.

Hope: Well, I’ve talked to my dad and he believes that she truly has changed.

Steffy: Oh!

Ridge: Ae you kidding me? Really?

Steffy: Oh, my god.

Hope: So much so that, um… he proposed to her.

Brooke: He what?

Steffy: What? They’re engaged? Oh, what an idiot.

Ridge: What? How dumb is your dad? Really?

Steffy: Any normal person would realize that sheila hasn’t changed. Come on, she’s only doing it because she wants to lure finn back into her life.

[ Steffy scoffs ]

Finn: Hey.

Deacon: Hey, finn.

Finn: You, uh, have time to talk?

Deacon: Yeah, of course.

Finn: Yeah, I, um… spoke with hope. I hear there’s some congratulations in order.

Deacon: Yeah, your mom and i are pretty excited. We’re probably the only people that are excited, but, uh, maybe you and hope could be a little excited for us?

Finn: Oh, hey, I wish you guys all the best.

Deacon: I was kind of hoping you might get involved.

Finn: Hope said you’d like me to be your best man.

Deacon: Finn, it would make the day so much more memorable. I mean, especially for your mom, you know? To see you standing up there for us and with hope, god willing.

Finn: Yeah, like, I’m, uh… I’m trying to be as supportive as possible, but you know steffy. She, rightfully so, doesn’t want me anywhere near sheila.

Deacon: I get it, I do. I also know that you’re the kind of man that makes his own decisions. I mean, look, man, I’m not trying to cause any problems for you in your marriage.

Finn: Okay, well, that’s exactly what it would do if I agreed to go… be your best man.

Deacon: So you’re turning me down?

Finn: Look, I’m– I’m truly happy for you. You are giving sheila hope for a better and brighter future, and I think that’s incredible. But I just– I can’t go to the wedding. You understand?

Deacon: I understand, yeah. I just don’t know how your mom’s gonna feel about it.

Finn: Oh, did you– you heard? Hey, look, I’m– I’m sorry, and like I said, I– I want your happiness, and I think you found it with a good man. But me, being at the ceremony, being his best man, I can’t do that.

Sheila: You can’t, or steffy won’t let you? Hey, look, it’s– it’s okay. I don’t want to upset steffy and make things harder for you. But I’m– I’m your mom. I gave birth to you, and we’ve already missed spending so much of our life together, and now I’m marrying deacon. I finally found love. I mean, something I’ve been yearning for my entire life, and it is going to be a magical day. A day that we would really love you to be a part of. I’m not trying to make things tough on you, but it would be so meaningful to have you there. I mean, to…

[ Finn chuckles ] To have you just smiling at me during the ceremony, you know, so please… say you’ll be there, say you’ll be there for your mom on her wedding day.
