After Steffy leaves, Liam stops and tells Hope it isn't right. She says they should be together. He says they're not, and this isn't fair to Steffy. Hope goes over all the reasons they've been cheated and should be together now. "Nothing can stand in our way." She says they were victims and she wants to make it right. His head is spinning. He tells her he won't do the same damage to Steffy - to show her the respect she deserves. Hope says they deserve to be together. He doesn't want anyone to be hurt.

Rick receives his congratulations from everyone. Rick tells Eric he doesn't know what to say. Eric says his presentation said it all - he couldn't be more proud. Rick settles into his chair. Caroline joins him and talks about this being his legacy. Rick says he'll have to prove himself every day. They discuss doing 'overtime' behind the desk and make-out.

Steffy drives in her car thinking about everything. She almost has an accident.

Taylor looks for Steffy in her office. Thomas appears and fills her in on Rick being chosen as president. He says he should be used to Brooke's family coming out on top by now. He leaves and Taylor spots Steffy's pregnancy test box. Steffy appears and Taylor asks if she's alright. Steffy says she has to get to the airport. Taylor asks for the truth about the pregnancy test. Steffy tells her, "You saw nothing." She tells her no one can know. Taylor is mystified and concerned. Steffy leaves. Taylor worries. "A baby."

On the airplane, Steffy flashes to her conversation with Taylor and cries. A guy sits down and asks if she's okay. She tells him to leave her alone.
