At the loft, Rick tells Steffy she's better off there than at Taylor's - it's much less awkward for a guy to spend the night. Steffy suggests he leave soon. At the door, Steffy tells him she had fun tonight. Once alone, Steffy looks at the bathtub and thinks about Liam.
At the beach house, Liam informs Bill that he's willing to wait for Hope. Bill makes nice, and asks Liam to put his sword necklace back on. Liam's not ready, but assures Bill he knows he loves him. Bill says that's why he wants the best for him - Steffy. Liam says they're different. Bill thinks Liam's fantasizing about Steffy, and admits he had a fantasy about Brooke. Liam gapes. Bill says they're men - it happens. He suggests that Liam indulge in Steffy. Liam says Steffy may not be waiting around for him - she was on a date with Rick. Bill warns Liam to stop the divorce. He reiterates that married life with Hope won't be what Liam thinks - it will 'I've got a headache' every night. Once alone, Liam gets a call from Steffy who asks him to come to her loft. He says he can't. She promises not to tell Hope. Liam leaves.
Hope tells Brooke, at home, that she intends to wait until she's married to have sex. Brooke says she's proud of Hope wanting to wait, but thinks it's an unnecessary burden. Rick enters and says there may still be hope for him getting to Steffy. Brooke tells Hope to consider her advice and take Steffy's power away. Rick agrees that Hope shouldn't give Steffy the power to say when she can be with Liam. Hope reminds him she's a role model. She complains that everyone is pressuring her to go against what she believes. She asks Rick about him and Steffy. Rick says they have a really good connection. Hope wants him to get Steffy's mind off Liam. Rick laughs, "What if I get hurt?" Hope tells him just to get Steffy off the market.
At home, Bill takes a call from Brooke. They discuss Hope being a little too prim and proper. Brooke says Hope doesn't want to disappoint her fans. Bill scoffs, "She'd rather disappoint my son," and hangs up.
