At their beach house, Wyatt and Steffy argued about Wyatt's mother. Steffy said she couldn't take it, and she was moving out. Wyatt understood she was fed up, but he tried to rationalize that Steffy was scared, stressed, and hurting. He promised to get Quinn out of Eric's company and out of his house. "Let me try. Give me another chance, Steffy, please," he begged.

"It's too late," Steffy answered. Wyatt insisted that he would get through to his mother, and she would no longer be a problem. Steffy disagreed. "I can't have your mother's decisions affect my life anymore," Steffy said.

Wyatt countered that he had been dealing with his mother's behavior since he'd been born. He vowed that he would get her out of their lives. "I will send her far, far away. She won't be a problem," he promised.

Steffy said she wanted to believe that Wyatt could make Quinn disappear. "I don't think that's possible anymore," she said. She added that Quinn was a problem for everyone -- not just Steffy and Wyatt. Wyatt said Quinn wanted to change. "She's delusional. This will never stop," Steffy said.

Steffy insisted that Quinn was missing a sense of right and wrong. Quinn had justified kidnapping Liam because she had taken care of him. Steffy listed other situations in which Quinn had justified her actions, and Steffy added that she could no longer handle it. Quinn had targeted her grandfather.

Wyatt argued that his marriage to Steffy could not be doomed because of his mother. Steffy countered that Quinn should be in prison, but instead, she was going to be working at Forrester again and in a relationship with her grandfather. "Where is the justice in this?" Steffy demanded.

Wyatt argued that Quinn was still his mother. Steffy reminded him that Quinn was a criminal. She added that she was his wife, and her sanity and safety needed to be his first priority -- just as he had said in his marriage vows. But instead, Steffy said Quinn had "infected every corner of my life."

Steffy promised not to file for divorce, but getting away from Wyatt and Quinn was what she needed. Wyatt argued that moving out was not the answer. He pleaded with her to stay. "I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Goodbye," she said, and she walked out. Wyatt called after her, and Steffy cried outside the house.

At the Forrester mansion, Eric, Quinn, and Ridge had a tense discussion. Ridge tried to persuade his father that Quinn was causing trouble for everyone. He told Eric that Quinn had been isolating him from his family and causing conflict in Wyatt's relationship with Steffy. "Why would you put everything you care about at risk?" Ridge asked.

Eric and Quinn looked at each other. Ridge ranted that Quinn ruined lives. "It's a fact, not an opinion," Ridge said. He wondered why his father would welcome her to Ridge's mom's house, where love and family were important and where they had all learned to stick together.

Eric calmly reminded Ridge that nothing had been more important to Stephanie than family, and she could be ferocious in protection of family members. "We spent wonderful years together, but they weren't all wonderful," Eric said. He recalled that Stephanie had driven him to his limits, and she had been demanding, overbearing, and intimidating. He added that she had been his inspiration.

Ridge wondered if Eric thought that Quinn could replace that. Eric said that there was goodness in everyone. He said he wanted to believe in happiness, love, and support. He believed Quinn added that to his life. Ridge chastised his father as a lovesick fool who was so desperate for companionship that he would allow a con artist into his home and company.

Ridge predicted that Quinn would not be accepted by his company, his family, and the entire global market of clients. "You're gonna regret it," Ridge said. He added that Quinn was an evil woman. Eric argued that Ridge could not tell him how to live his life. Ridge said he loved his dad, but he was sad that Stephanie's portrait had to see what Eric had done. Ridge left.

Quinn worried that Eric was unsure about her moving in. Eric said that Ridge had been out of line. Quinn said she was flattered that Eric had asked her to move in, and his support meant everything to her. She added that Ridge wasn't wrong about everything. Both families would reject their relationship.

Eric persuaded Quinn that it was the right decision for her to move in. Quinn reveled in the fact that she would become part of a respected and admired family legacy. They kissed, and Stephanie's portrait fell off the wall. They both laughed.

At Thomas' loft, Liam and Thomas drank beers and analyzed what Quinn had done. Thomas filled Liam in on the latest happenings. Liam was surprised that Eric had kicked Ridge out of the house and was in a relationship with Quinn.

Thomas predicted that Eric's relationship with Quinn would push Steffy over the edge. Thomas said Eric wouldn't listen to anyone. Liam and Thomas agreed that Quinn was a threat to Steffy's happiness.

Liam shared that he was frustrated with Wyatt because he could do nothing to stop Quinn. "I believe he wants to, but he's been trying his whole life," Liam said. Liam noted that Quinn had usually been looking out for Wyatt's happiness, but she was focused on her own. Thomas wondered how Wyatt would keep Quinn out of their lives. "No one can keep her away," Liam said.
