Ridge makes a comment about Steffy raising two kids on her own.  Not if Hope has her way, Steffy retorts.  Steffy fills Ridge in on what Hope did.

Ridge wonders about Steffy though.  Did part of her want Liam to come back to her?  Steffy doesn’t want Liam to end his marriage like this.  They are grieving their child.  Sure, she wishes things were different, but if Liam was here she wouldn’t have Phoebe who Steffy loves like she gave birth to her.
