Vienna: Not a chance. I'll talk to you later. Bye.
Henry: I'll be thrilled by what news?
Vienna: Katie -- she wants to throw us an engagement party.
Henry: What?! When?
Vienna: Isn't she the best?! Oh! Hi, Barbara.
Vienna: Henry and I -- we would like to invite you to a party.
Barbara: Oh. You're having a party?
Vienna: Yes, our engagement party. Isn't it wonderful? Katie -- she wants to throw it for us tonight at metro.
Barbara: Sorry. Busy. Can’t.
Vienna: Oh, come on. Please. You can change your plans. It wouldn't be a real celebration without you there.
Barbara: Oh, I doubt that.
Vienna: No, but you and Paul -- you're the only family Henry has left here in Oakdale. No, I know that he really wants you there, even if it's just for a little while.
Barbara: I -- I don't think so.
Vienna: Oh, we're not gonna take no for an answer. Right, Henry?
Henry: No! I mean yes. We are not gonna take no for an answer -- unless you really do have another commitment, and of course we understand that.
Barbara: Oh. Well, let me see what I can do. I wouldn't want to miss your celebration.
Vienna: Um, everybody's so happy for us.
Vienna: It's wonderful, isn't it?
Henry: Yeah, it's so wonderful. Sweetie, I don't know. It -- it might be a little premature.
Vienna: I thought you wanted to marry me.
Henry: I do.
Vienna: Well, I'm sorry, but the way you've been acting lately, it makes me wonder.
Henry: No, I -- I just -- Sweetie, I don't -- I don't want to rush into things and just mess things up.
Vienna: Well, I just want to be your wife. I just want to know it's gonna be you and me sharing our love together forever.
Henry: I know. That's what I want, too!
Vienna: Tell me why you want to marry me.
Henry: What? There are so many reasons!
Henry: Why do I want to marry you? Well, first of all, to make up for all the mistakes that I've made, all the times I've betrayed your trust, all the times I let you down.
Vienna: Yeah, you might not want to remind me of all of that.
Henry: Okay, well, you asked.
Vienna: Well, what about love?
Vienna: That's why you should want to marry me -- because you think I'm smart and -- and sexy, funny, and hot, and that you love everything about me!
Henry: I do!
Vienna: Well, then, that's what we're celebrating tonight, that I'm gonna be Mrs. Coleman and you're gonna be my Henry forever.
Vienna: It's so nice that you came.
Emily: Oh, we're -- we're thrilled for the both of you.
Paul: I guess this means you're gonna be our sister-in-law.
Vienna: Well, yes, I guess it does. But I'm looking forward to it. Excuse me a minute.
Emily: Ah. Can I get you a drink?
Paul: If you're buying.
Henry: I'm -- I'm good.
Paul: So, uh, this is it, huh?
Henry: Yeah, looks like it, yeah.
Paul: You know, if it's the right one, marriage can be great.
Henry: How do you know?
Paul: How do I -- how do I -- what do you mean?
Henry: If it's the right woman?
Paul: I thought you were sure about Vienna.
Katie: Can we serve the rest of the champagne? I want to make a toast.
Vienna: No, no, no, I don't think everybody's here yet.
Katie: Who's missing?
Katie: Who? What? You invited Barbara?
Vienna: Yes. Henry and Barbara are practically family. Oh, here she is.
Barbara: Hi. Thank you.
Paul: You're drunk.
Barbara: I'm celebrating.
Katie: Hi. Everyone, can I get your attention, please? Uh, thank you. I would like to make a toast and thank everyone for being here to celebrate the engagement of Henry and Vienna.
Barbara: Ah! And I'm gonna make the first toast. As the -- senior -- yes, I am senior member of this assembly, I just want to wish all the happiest to my new best friend, the luscious Vienna and to my very, very, very, very, very good friend, Henry Coleman.
Henry: Thank you, Barbara. Thank you. That is, uh, wonderful --
Barbara: I'm not finished. I'd like to tell you all something my dear friend -- my dear, loyal, humble, honest friend, Henry Coleman. You ever think about how funny life is, how things can happen that you don't really expect, like romance? You know, it sneaks up on you. You don't even know its coming. And -- and maybe the guy is a guy you thought was a creep or a loser or someone just wrong for you. And -- pretty soon you're feeling something, and it's powerful, and you start to change and start over, and it doesn't really matter anymore that the guy is really, really, really wrong for you.
Vienna: What is she talking about?
Katie: I have no idea.
Barbara: So what do you do? Do you ask him if he loves you? And what if he doesn't? And worse yet, what if he does?
Katie: Okay! Uh, I think Barbara's right. Let's all say congratulations --
Barbara: I'm not finished yet.
Katie: Oh, yes, you are. You are very finished.
Paul: What was that all about?
Barbara: What the hell do you care?
Paul: That relationship talk that you wanted to have with me was about you and Henry?
Barbara: You know what? Leave me alone.
Paul: That is twisted. He is my brother. That's sick even for you.
Barbara: You have never understood me. You have never understood me at all! Just get out of my way.
Vienna: What got into her?
Henry: Uh, too much champagne I guess.
Katie: Yeah, I think Henry's right. She just had way, way too much champagne.
Henry: Too much. I'll be right back.
Paul: Are you out of your mind?
Henry: Where did she go?
Paul: She left. You're not going after her.
Henry: You let her leave? Did she drive here?
Paul: I don't know. How the hell would I know that?
Henry: What -- she is drunk, Paul? How could you -- if she gets behind the wheel of a car -- my God.
Emily: I think Henry's right. I think we need to find your mother and make sure she gets home okay.
Paul: She is not my problem, not anymore. Let's just get out of here.
Vienna: Katie, I can't find Henry. Did you see where he went?
Henry: Barbara --
Barbara: Go away.
Katie: Henry has to be around here somewhere.
Vienna: I've looked, and I can't find him.
Katie: Maybe the men's room.
Vienna: I suppose.
Mark: I haven't had a chance to congratulate you yet. I always thought you two were the perfect couple.
Vienna: Thank you, Mark. That is so sweet.
Mark: You're welcome.
Barbara: I told you, leave me alone.
Henry: Uh, too bad. I'm not, uh -- I'm not going anywhere. You scared me to death leaving the party like that. I thought you were gonna get behind the wheel.
Barbara: I'm drunk. I'm not stupid. Why do you care anyway? You don't care anything about me.
Henry: Yes, I do.
Barbara: No, you don't! You're marrying her!
Henry: I know, but I -- I do. I still care about you.
Barbara: No, you don’t. Why would you care about me? You're marrying the most beautiful woman in Oakdale. I have been such a fool.
Henry: That's not true. You have not.
Barbara: Okay, go away. Just go away. Just please go away.
Henry: You might want to --
Barbara: Let go of me.
Barbara: Let go of me. Please, just let go of me! I'm not a fool, okay? You're making me look like a fool. I'm not a fool.
Henry: Okay, okay, okay, you're not a fool. You're not, you're not. You're not, okay? Just let me take you home, please.
Barbara: Oh, that's too bright. That is too bright.
Henry: Uh, is that better.
Barbara: Not really. My head hurts.
Henry: You had a lot to drink.
Barbara: Uh-huh. I am -- I am sorry.
Henry: You don't have to apologize to me.
Barbara: No, no, no, not about getting drunk. I'm just sorry that I almost outted us to everybody. Thank God Katie stopped me, huh?
Henry: You, uh -- you let her stop you.
Barbara: I did, I did. I did the right thing.
Henry: Yes, you did.
Barbara: I did the right thing, didn't I?
Barbara: I did. That might be a first, you know?
Henry: No, it would not.
Barbara: Oh, you don't know. I'm the world's leading expert on taking a bad situation and just making it absolutely worse.
Henry: Well, not this time.
Barbara: I must be losing my touch.
Henry: I'm glad you can laugh about it.
Barbara: That's me. I'm a real comedienne.
Henry: You all right?
Barbara: Mm. Yeah, I'll -- take something and drink a lot of water and I'll be fine.
Henry: Then I should go.
Barbara: You should go. You still here?
Henry: I know.
Barbara: Is something wrong?
Henry: Not with you.
Barbara: What are you doing?
Henry: I'm, uh -- I'm just giving you a kiss good night.
Barbara: Okay. Good night. No, no. Stop, stop, stop. Henry, stop. Just stop. You're engaged.
Henry: I know.
Barbara: You're engaged, so go. Just go.
Henry: No, no, no, no, no.
Barbara: Please, just go, go. Stop making a fool of me.
Henry: I am not making a fool of you.
Barbara: Please stop this. You go back to your fiancée and stop it!
Henry: You don't mean that.
Barbara: I do mean it! I want you to leave me alone!
Henry: No, I can’t.
Barbara: No, please, please!
Katie: What the hell are you doing?!
Barbara: How dare you barge in here?
Henry: Look, it's not what it looks like.
Katie: Then what is it?
Henry: We were just talking.
Katie: In each other's arms?
Barbara: I want you to leave.
Katie: You are threatening his happiness!
Barbara: I want you to get out of here! What are you doing here!
Katie: How could you just leave without telling everybody where you were going?
Henry: It was an emergency, Katie.
Katie: Oh, is that what you call it?
Henry: Yes, yeah, that's what I call it. She -- she'd been drinking a lot. I was scared she was gonna drive.
Katie: How is that your problem?! Your fiancée went home alone having no idea where you were, which is probably a good thing. Let's go before she finds out.
Henry: Look, I will call you.
Katie: No, you won't!
Barbara: No, no, no, don't bother, don't bother. You won't answer! I won't answer! I'm done, Henry! Do you understand?! It's over! It's over! I'm done!
Katie: Are you out of your mind?
Henry: I can explain this.
Katie: No, you can’t. Do you have any idea how sick this is?
Henry: Yes, I know! I -- I'm sorry. I can't help it.
Katie: Why not?
Henry: I -- I don't know! I -- I love Vienna. I love her. I want to marry her. I want to make her happy. I just -- I have these feelings for Barbara.
Katie: Forget the feelings. You're getting married to Vienna, not Barbara.
Henry: I know, I know. I just -- I don't know if I can give her up.
Katie: You have to. You have to stop this. Do you have any idea what this will do to Vienna if she finds out?
Henry: Yeah. It will destroy her.
Katie: Yes, it will, and she doesn't deserve that.
Henry: I know that!
Katie: You will stop this right now!
Vienna: Henry, what happened to you? Where did you find him?
Katie: Right here. Right here in this hotel, downstairs.
Vienna: Why did you leave the party?
Henry: I had a headache.
Katie: He had a stomach ache.
Vienna: Why were you guys shouting right now?
Vienna: Right now. I could hear you all the way out in the hallway. Were you arguing about me?
Henry: Yes. I was asking Katie what I should get you for a wedding present.
Katie: Right, and I was angry with him because he didn't know what to get you.
Henry: Yeah, so technically we were shouting.
Katie: And it was about you.
Henry: But we weren't arguing.
Katie: Not about you.
Vienna: The two of you spend way too much time together.
Katie: Well, you're right, so I'm gonna leave you two alone.
Vienna: Bye, Katie. It was a wonderful party. Thank you.
Katie: Well, I just wanted to celebrate how special you two are together. I'll talk to you soon.
Henry: I need to take an antacid. This stomachache --
Vienna: Wait, I thought it was a headache.
Henry: Yeah, yeah. It's a little bit of both.
