Carter: Katie’s handling the italian media.
Ridge: Look at you putting together an advanced team. Good for you, carter.
Carter: Thank you. All from international. Steffy wants them handling all the logistics in rome.
Ridge: All right, I gotta ask a question. Can anyone think of a more perfect place than rome in spring?
Eric: No. It’s a beautiful place. You’re right. But look, hope and thomas have been working really well together, but this is gonna be an intense experience for them. Is there any reason for us to worry about them working together?
Brooke: Steffy should have kept her concerns to herself.
Taylor: Steffy was just defending her brother.
Brooke: No. Steffy was accusing hope of having feelings for thomas, and she was getting liam to not trust his wife’s commitment. Come on, taylor, please. As my friend, just step up and help me. Go to your daughter, talk to her, and don’t allow her to do anything that’s gonna come between hope and liam.
Deacon: We’ve got some fantastic new chardonnays in the wine list. I’m gonna send victoria over now. Okay, great. Victoria, do me a favor, bring the new wine and serve it at table three, okay?
Victoria: Yes, deacon.
Deacon: Oh, look at this. It’s my favorite customer.
Hope: It is… busy today. Do you, um, have a table for me?
Deacon: You have a res? Uh, of course, I do. Best seat in the house. Bar side, up front with your old man.
Hope: Sounds great.
Deacon: So, what are you in the mood for?
Hope: Mm. Not really sure. I just, uh, needed to see a friendly face.
Deacon: Uh-oh. What’s going on, hope? Oh, god. Let me guess. This has to do with thomas, doesn’t it?
Hope: Ugh! Is it okay if we don’t talk about thomas?
Deacon: Honey, if he’s causing problems or– or if he’s done something, you can talk to me.
Hope: Dad, it’s not what you think, okay? It’s not what anyone thinks. I mean, everyone is so worried about thomas and me when there’s no reason to be, all right? And I’m– I’m tired of people not believing me, okay? I have the situation under control.
Deacon: What situation? Hope, please talk to me.
Eric: Thomas and hope have been working really well together, but an event like this can be very challenging.
Carter: They’re ready for it.
Eric: Any concerns, ridge?
Ridge: No, I think their work speaks for itself.
Eric: Well, it’s all about collaboration and teamwork, so.
Carter: It really is. And I’m– I’m so impressed with hope. Allowing thomas to rejoin the line. She knew what they could accomplish if she gave him a chance.
Ridge: So obviously, thomas’s past didn’t turn out to be the problem everybody thought it was gonna be.
Taylor: You know, steffy made it clear to liam and hope that she wasn’t trying to cause any trouble at all. She was just defending her brother.
Brooke: But you could imagine how liam reacted.
Taylor: Yes. Yes. Yes, I can. And what I would hope is that it would prompt a conversation between liam and hope because if your daughter is having feelings for my son–
Brooke: Well, hope doesn’t have feelings for thomas, so you don’t have to worry about that.
Taylor: Okay. Well, normally I– I probably wouldn’t worry about that, but I don’t know. You, um, you didn’t listen to me when I was saying the same things about thomas.
Brooke: Well, I couldn’t just forget about his past.
Taylor: Okay. Well, I guess I can’t forget that hope has logan blood in her.
[ Brooke scoffing ] When you have chronic kidney disease.
Ridge: All right. Carter, what else?
Carter: Uh, actually I wanna run this by you. I reached out to our associates in milano. Thomas and hope, they’re very excited about doing press, so they wanna set up some social engagements.
Eric: The more exposure, the better.
Ridge: Yeah. Okay. Uh, but they need to focus on what they’re doing, right? Let’s not have them run around having their picture taken.
Eric: Eh, that’s part of the fun, isn’t it? I mean, every time you and brooke went over there, you were front page news. Is– is brooke going with you?
Ridge: Is brooke go– why?
Eric: Well, hope for the future is her daughter’s line. Shouldn’t she go?
Ridge: You know what, dad? You’re not as subtle as you think you are. Thomas is lead designer, so should taylor go as well? Or what do you think?
Carter: I love this. I like this a lot. I like when we veer from the meeting and we explore your love life.
Ridge: My love life?
Ridge: There’s no love life. Those two women, they’ve sworn off of me for whatever reason.
[ Carter laughing ]
Hope: I’m telling you, dad, there’s nothing wrong. I mean, that is the problem. But I’m tired of everybody worrying about me constantly.
Deacon: Should I be worried? I– I mean, am I falling down at the job here?
Deacon: Hope, listen, you can come to me anytime you want. You know that, right? If you wanna talk. Is that what this is about?
Hope: No, I don’t wanna talk about this, okay? Liam has already been concerned about thomas and me working together for a while now.
Deacon: Can’t say I blame the guy.
Hope: Except there’s no reason to be anymore, dad. I mean, it’s like I keep trying to reassure him and everybody else that thomas is fine now and no matter how hard I try, no one believes me.
Deacon: Define fine.
Hope: He’s better.
Deacon: Better– better than how crazy he was five minutes ago, better? I mean, it’s a pretty low bar, hope.
Hope: He is a professional. He has been a gentleman. He’s a better father to douglas now and let’s not forget, he is a very, very valuable part of my team.
Deacon: Okay. All right.
Deacon: Great. I– I’m honestly happy to hear that, you know? I mean, look, I trust you not to put yourself in a tough situation, all right? You– you get your best qualities from your mother, but you get your street smarts from me, all right? You know your own feelings. I mean, look, if thomas isn’t setting off alarm bells, you know, you’re not getting that weird twisty feeling in your gut, I’m gonna say that you probably don’t have to stress about it. I mean, you know, you’re closer than anyone. Seeing him with new eyes, I guess. I’ll be right back.
Brooke: Hope has logan blood in her? What is that supposed to mean?
Taylor: Let’s see if I can clarify it. Honestly, it just means that hope has logan blood in her.
Brooke: Oh, my god.
Brooke: Seriously, you’re gonna go there?
Taylor: Come on, brooke. I’m not– I’m not trying to fight or anything. No. But I will always defend my family and thomas has changed. He’s doing so well. You have nothing to worry about when it comes to him working with hope, unless…
Brooke: Unless what?
Taylor: Well, unless hope is the one having inappropriate feelings for my son.
Brooke: Oh, my god. I– I thought we were friends.
Taylor: Well, friends can disagree.
Taylor: See, I have been very respectful about the way that you feel about my son. I don’t understand why– why is it wrong for me to share my feelings with you?
Brooke: It’s not the same thing, taylor.
Taylor: Oh, okay. Okay.
Brooke: You know what? You know what? Our pact meant a lot to me and I don’t want anything to happen to our friendship here, so I’m gonna do the right thing and I’m gonna take myself out before I say something that I’m gonna regret.
Taylor: Well, it’s too late for that.
[ Door closes ] (Wheezing)
Deacon: Don’t wanna take you away
Hope: I knew I came to the right place.
Deacon: Any time, kiddo.
Hope: Well, I, uh, don’t wanna take you away from your customers.
Deacon: Are you kidding me? Look, if my daughter wants to come in and talk to me, there’s nothing more important.
Hope: Well, I actually didn’t, uh, just come for pep talk or delicious food. I– I do have some news.
Hope: My big press event.
Hope: It’s happening in rome.
Deacon: Oh, you’ve gotta be kidding me. That is so fantastic.
Hope: I know.
Deacon: It’s fantastic. You know how much I love italy.
Hope: Absolutely. And– and it is just so exciting to me. The planning and the preparation. I mean, the whole office is buzzing.
Deacon: I would say that you’re buzzing.
Hope: Yeah. Well, you know, I’ve done business overseas in the past, but something about this time, it just feels different.
Deacon: Yeah. You’re launching a new collection. I mean, you gotta do it up big. I know you’re gonna kill it.
Hope: Thanks, dad.
Deacon: I just want you to know, I’m so proud of everything that you’re doing, all your accomplishments. More than anything, I’m just proud of who you are. Can’t believe you came from me.
Hope: Um, what was that you were saying a little bit ago about, uh, street smarts?
Deacon: Just wish that I’d been around to watch you grow up, you know, watch you grow into this incredible person.
Hope: Yeah. Hey, you’re here now.
Deacon: Damn straight. I’m not going anywhere. I know I messed up a lot in the past, but that part of my life is finished. The best thing that I have ever done with a little help from brooke is make a remarkable woman like you.
Ridge: That’s good. Just a couple of things you need to check on.
Charlie: Yeah. I’ll make sure we photograph all the locked items. And, you know, uh, by the by, I just want you to know I have this phrase book almost totally memorized. Just, you know, in case you need me at the last, uh, at the last, uh… momento.
Ridge: No, that’s– that’s great. If we have any frogs that need lipstick, we’ll give you a call.
Charlie: Oh, sure. Well, yeah. Yeah. Well, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, fosse, uh, uh, possibilimente, huh?
Charlie: Are you okay? Well, uh, ciao, ciao.
Charlie: Ciao [Indistinct].
Ridge: Okay. No, it’s good. I’ll look at the thing. All right. Almost there.
Eric: All right. Good. It’s good we have a moment alone together.
Ridge: What’s up?
Eric: Look… you know how much I love having family around. I love that you’re staying at the house.
Ridge: You’re throwing me out right now, aren’t you?
Eric: I am not throwing you out right now.
Ridge: You are politely asking me to get out.
Eric: No, there’s not a polite way to ask somebody to get out and that’s not what I’m doing. You can stay as long as you want. I’m just surprised that you feel you still need to and that the situation hasn’t resolved itself by now.
Eric: Look, you and brooke are capable of making your own decision by yourselves.
Ridge: She’s made her decision.
Eric: Yeah. And you know where I stand on that. You and brooke belong together. You always have and you always will.
Brooke: Oh, glad you’re both here. I need to confirm some details for the preview.
Brooke: If I’m not interrupting.
Eric: No, you’re not. In fact, it’s perfect timing. I have some things I have to do and I’m sure the two of you can sort things out on your own. You’re perfectly capable.
[ Ridge laughing ]
Brooke: Uh, okay. What is that supposed to mean?
Ridge: Oh, I don’t know. I’m not sure. It’s dad. He, um, you know how he feels about us.
Deacon: Hey, forget something?
Taylor: Um, yeah. Ironically, I– I did. Um, I forgot that brooke logan is brooke logan. I brought in ensure max protein with 30g of protein.
Brooke: Eric’s always been very supportive, very encouraging.
Ridge: Mm-hmm. Yeah. But he did give me a bit of a kick in the pants today, which I wasn’t expecting. He, um, he doesn’t wanna be my landlord anymore.
Brooke: Well, that’s not true. He misses you when you’re not around.
Ridge: Maybe. But, uh, I think he’d rather have me live somewhere else.
Brooke: Oh, so he thinks that we should work things out.
Ridge: Mm-hmm. He’s not subtle about it.
Ridge: You know him. He’s got an opinion, it’ll just– it– it’ll come out. He’ll tell everybody. His kids, grandkids. He’s always been your champion.
Brooke: Yeah, he’s always had my back.
Ridge: And why wouldn’t he? Look at you. You’re so beautiful, talented, great mom.
Brooke: Okay. Keep going. I could use all the compliments I could get today.
Ridge: You’re kind, you’re caring. You– you’re great.
Brooke: I’m kidding.
Ridge: Okay. You’re fun at a party. Even more fun after the party.
Brooke: Oh, my god. Okay.
Ridge: I miss you.
Brooke: I miss you.
Deacon: Do I need to remind you that you and brooke are supposed to be friends now?
Taylor: Yes, I know. Do you think maybe you could remind brooke that we are?
Deacon: Okay. Maybe I was getting mixed signals here, but it seemed to me like you were trying to get me and brooke together so that you’d have a clear path to ridge.
Taylor: No. That– that is not what I was doing. No, that– that’s not what I was doing. I– I was just– I was trying to do what was best for everyone at that point. I– you know, deacon, you’ve loved brooke for a long time. You– you have a child together. Your feelings for her have never changed.
Deacon: Pretty sure she doesn’t have the same ones.
Taylor: Well, but I– I was just saying, hey, give it a chance. You never know. You gotta go for it. And how great would it be if hope had her family together?
Deacon: Taylor, come on. Knock it off. You didn’t come all the way down here to tell me that hope wants to see her parents reunited. What’s going on with you? Just talk to me.
Taylor: Something’s going on. I– I– I’m not trusting brooke. I’m not trusting our pact. I’m not trusting anything right now. We had some words.
Deacon: Okay. Look, if the– the gloves are coming off, maybe I wanna take cover.
Taylor: But deacon, I– I wasn’t, and I’m not trying to manipulate brooke or stab her in the back. I just really believe that– well, you are a catch, you know. You’re– you’re handsome and you’re successful and charming and–
Deacon: All right. I– I– I– stop, dr. Freud. You’re gonna overinflate my ego. It doesn’t need any help.
Taylor: No, I’m serious, deacon. I just wish you could see what I see.
Deacon: Well, you really are good at what you do, aren’t you? ‘Cause you have got a knack for making people feel good about themselves.
Taylor: Yes. Well, that is why I get paid the big bucks.
Deacon: And because you’re a world renowned psychiatrist.
Taylor: That’s right. And don’t you forget it.
Deacon: How could I?
Taylor: Deacon, after today, I… oh, I don’t know. I, um… I think you might be able to help.
Taylor: You might just be the key, deacon.
Taylor: To ending this toxic, destructive cycle that’s been going on for so long. You need to call brooke. You need to do it, deacon. Do it now.
