After their motorcycle ride, still on the coast, Steffy asks Liam if he plans to go through with the wedding. He nods, but says Steffy taught him something today and he doesn't want to lose her friendship. Steffy says they'll consider this day his bachelor party. They hit the boardwalk and watch skateboarders, dance to the buskers' music, and play volleyball.

At the Forrester mansion, Hope tells Stephanie she wants an elegant wedding, and it has to be tomorrow. Stephanie says she'll do her best. Pam has more grandiose ideas, but Brooke sets her straight. A florist friend of Pam's arrives offering Asian orchids and kimonos for the bridal party. Hope and Brooke whisper about getting a new florist. Gustav, the caterer, arrives and sniffs about having the luncheon before the wedding. Brooke gets on the phone and then tells Hope that Aunt Donna can't come because she's out of town, but Aunt Katie's excited. Stephanie reappears and promises to keep Pam out of their hair tomorrow. Brooke says Ridge is designing a gown. Hope tells them that she and Liam are having dinner tonight and tomorrow they'll be married - nothing will get in the way this time. Hope and Stephanie discuss having a classic Forrester wedding. Stephanie says she's always loved her and what she stands for. Hope jokes she should give her away. They laugh and Stephanie has a coughing attack. Hope won't leave her.

Steffy and Liam arrive at the Malibu house. Steffy wants him to think about why he needed this fun time so badly. Liam says he's been very stressed out. Steffy reminds him that it's because of Hope repeatedly walking out. Liam tells Steffy he's loved their time together and the way he feels about her is never going to change. Steffy says it's not easy for her to know that she won't have him in her life, knowing they could be so happy together. Steffy tells Liam she loves him and hugs him, before wishing him happiness and leaving. Later, Liam prepares for Hope's arrival. Hope calls and says she has to cancel, but she will see him tomorrow.

Back at the Forrester mansion, Stephanie is perturbed with Hope for canceling on account of her cough. She tries to get her to go, but Hope refuses. Stephanie says she's just like her mother, who drove her crazy last year.

Steffy's back at the nightclub with her girlfriends dishing on her Liam troubles. Suddenly he appears. Liam tells Steffy that Hope stood him up and he didn't want to be alone - it's his last night of freedom. He pulls her onto the dance floor.
