Bill and Brooke kiss in her living room. Hope comes in and Brooke awakens from her kissing dream. Hope asks, "You were dreaming about him, weren't you?" Brooke is stunned until she realizes Hope is talking about Ridge. Brooke asks Hope how she is doing. Hope just doesn't understand how things went so wrong with Liam. She wonders what it is about Steffy - why can't he stay away from her? Talk turns to Katie. Hope says Brooke must have been relieved she came home - it couldn't have been easy spending time with Bill. Brooke muses that he wasn't all that bad.

In Caroline's guesthouse, she tells Rick she can't let this go - they need to tell the truth. Rick insists he doesn't want to see Hope hurt. He says Liam loves Steffy, who tricked him into marriage. He wants his sister out of this mess. He goes through the history. Rick says Liam can't stay away from Steffy, and tells Caroline how they wound up on video together in Italy. Rick explains that's why he convinced Othello to lie. Caroline thinks his lie is keeping Hope and Liam apart. Rick is worried about Hope's reaction if he comes clean. Caroline says they can't be clouded by this - it's wrong to keep up the deception. Rick agrees to fix what he did. He calls Hope and says he's coming over. Caroline beams. "I love you." Rick says she's the best thing that ever happened to him and unzips her dress. They make out in bed.

Bill is thinking about kissing Brooke at Big Bear when Justin and Liam enter his office. They discuss Katie having post-partum depression. Bill says she became convinced she was living on borrowed time and will continue to work with Taylor. He hopes things can get back to normal. After, Bill talks to Liam about Steffy. Liam says he's not thinking marriage yet, but he loves her. They discuss Caroline getting serious with Rick. Liam says Rick wanted her and slithered on in - Thomas didn't know what hit him. Bill thinks they should talk to Caroline and let her know what they think of Rick. Liam mentions Katie and asks Bill about the strange look he gets. Bill worries her depression will return. Liam reassures him.

Still at home, Brooke asks Hope about Forrester and Rick. Hope says Caroline brings out the best in him.
