Brooke and Bill debate in her bedroom. If he is going to stay in the marriage with Katie, he must have Brooke in his life. They kiss. Brooke tells him ‘this’ isn’t going to happen, but he says it is, and carries her to the bed while kissing her passionately. Soon, Rick knocks on the door. “Mom, are you in there?” Brooke answers awkwardly and implores Bill to hide in the bathroom. Brooke answers the door breathlessly and Rick asks if she’s okay. He steps inside and shares the news about Ridge’s change-of-heart at work. Rick tells Brooke he’ll get out of her hair now, which is a bit of a mess, and grins – whoever the guy is, he’s lucky. After, Brooke is appalled at the close call and Bill reassures her. He insists they both need this, and they go back to kissing. Later, Brooke tells Bill what they’re doing is hypocritical. He wants Liam to respect Wyatt’s marriage, but there they are disrespecting his. Bill says he’s always been the exception to the rule. He tells Brooke they are actually saving his marriage. Bill says, “To hell with honor,” and kisses her.
