Henry: Was that the babysitter?
Katie: I was expecting that message. Nothing to worry about. I want to concentrate on this wedding planning.
Henry: I thought the idea was for you and Vienna to plan the wedding, and then I just show up and say, "I do."
Katie: You have to show interest, Henry. You'll make Vienna happy. And you do want to be happily married to Vienna, don't you?
Katie: Yes, yes, of course you do. You need to put this fling with Barbara in the past, move on with the rest of your life with the woman you love.
Katie: One thing's for sure. You are not getting married in a gym like we did.
Henry: Uh, the gym was -- well, the gym was romantic. It was so out of the box.
Katie: Yeah. So sweaty and stinky. [Laughs]
Henry: Hey, Vienna. Vienna, you okay?
Henry: Are you sure you're okay? You looked a little worried before.
Vienna: No, I was just -- I was just thinking about the wedding. My God, look at all these magazines.
Katie: I know. Now that I get to combine my two favorite hobbies, matchmaking and wedding planning, I'm going all-out.
Vienna: Are you researching napkins?
Henry: Is that too much?
Vienna: No, it's wonderful. I want everything to be perfect.
Katie: It will be. Henry is going to make all your dreams come true, aren't you?
Henry: Yes, you bet.
Katie: All right. Well, I have to get going. I have to get home to Jacob. The sitter has to leave early.
Henry: If you got stuff to do, I -- I can look after the baby.
Vienna: Well -- well, wait. I thought we were gonna have lunch and talk about the wedding.
Henry: Yeah, yeah. We've got a while before we walk down the aisle though, don't we?
Katie: Vienna's right. The sooner you make decisions about what you want, the less chance you have of any last-minute glitches. So I'm gonna leave you two to talk. I will check in later and see what you've decided.
Henry: Thank you, Bubbles, for everything.
Katie: It's my pleasure.
Henry: So, what first?
Vienna: Well, why don't you start with, uh, looking at locations?
Vienna: And I'm gonna look for -- [Gasps] Oh, my God, I just found it! That's it!
Henry: What? What is it, at a yacht?
Vienna: My dress. My dress. I just found my wedding dress.
Henry: Oh, okay. Well, let me -- let me take a look at it.
Vienna: No, no, no. Not until the wedding day. Wow. It's exquisite, just the way I dreamed it was -- with a minor few adjustments, of course. God, I love it. I love it.
Henry: [Laughs] Well, let's -- let's get that designer on the phone. Where is it?
Vienna: I don't know. I think it looks Parisian. And if it is, I just have to fly over and meet with the designer personally.
Henry: Whatever it takes to get you what you want.
Vienna: Oh, I love you so much.
Henry: I love you, too, Liebchen. So, uh -- so, where is it? Is it, uh, Paris? Is it Milan?
Vienna: [Laughs] Oh, my God! It's a miracle. We have angels watching over us. It is a vintage B.R.O.
Henry: B.R.O.? Uh, isn't that --?
Vienna: Yes, it's Barbara Ryan Originals. And she's our friend, and she's right here. Now -- now I don't have to fly across the world to have my dress made. Oh, my God, it's perfect.
Henry: I am sure it's a beautiful dress, Liebchen, uh, but there's lots of other dresses out there. What were you saying about choices? I mean, w -- why get stuck on this one dress?
Vienna: Because this is it, and wedding dresses are like men, so once you find the one that is right for you, you know. So why keep looking?
Henry: You know what? We should talk to Katie about this.
Vienna: Katie? Why?
Henry: Because she is the wedding planner. And if you really like this dress, she can probably find one just like that by a different designer.
Vienna: I want this dress. And why do you care more about what Katie wants than what I want?
Henry: Oh, I do care about what you want, my little Pepparkakor, but why do we need Barbara? I mean, if you like the dress, let's buy the dress, wear the dress, and cut out the middle woman.
Vienna: And have my dress look like someone else's dress? No, absolutely not. I need Barbara to customize it for me. I'm gonna call her right now.
Henry: Um, you know what? You know what? Let me talk to her.
Vienna: You know nothing about dresses. I mean, at least not wedding dresses.
Henry: Right, right, yeah, yeah. But, I mean, the idea is to get Barbara to say yes, right? And I've got some experience with that.
Vienna: What do you mean?
Henry: I mean that we're -- we're sort of related, you know? I can -- I can work that angle. And -- and then if she says yes, you can go get fitted and then all that.
Vienna: Yes, but wouldn't it be easier if I just handle this?
Henry: You know what, Liebchen? Let me do this for you, for us, yeah.
Vienna: You know I can't resist you when you say it like that.
Henry: Good, good. That's good, that's good. Okay, I'll take care of Barbara. Now, now, what are you gonna do?
Vienna: Well, I'm gonna sit here and think about, um, getting married to you and how happy that makes me.
Henry: Okay. Mwah.
Henry: We've got a problem.
Barbara: There is no "We" anymore, so please take your problem and go.
Henry: I am trying to do what you asked me to do. I am trying to stay away, Barbara.
Barbara: Try harder.
Henry: Trust me, trust me, there is nothing harder than planning a wedding, thinking about you, and trying not to think about you.
Barbara: I am not gonna fall back into this again. Please, please go.
Henry: Barbara, that's just it. I can't stay gone, not without your help.
Barbara: I don't know why you just can't do what I've asked you to do and stay away from me.
Henry: Vienna has fallen in love with one of your wedding dresses.
Barbara: Oh, that's -- really? Which one? Where did she see it?
Henry: Well, I -- I don't know. What does that matter? It doesn't matter! Listen, she wants it, and you have got to convince her to change her mind.
Barbara: No, I don't have to do that. She can go buy the dress. It's okay.
Henry: Yeah, but she wants it modified or changed or something. I don't know.
Barbara: So have her buy it and take it to a seamstress.
Henry: She won't settle for another seamstress. She wants you.
Barbara: I see. Well, I'm very flattered, and I frankly would rather do the work on one of my designs myself.
Henry: Barbara, stop. Please, please stop. Uh, you've got to say no. You cannot do this.
Barbara: Why, Henry? Why not? It's business.
Henry: After what you and I have done in this room, and in that room, on the floor, in front of that mirror?!
Barbara: What does it matter?
Henry: It matters -- it matters because a woman I'm going to marry will be here constantly. She'll be talking to you about me. She'll be talking to me about you. You will be a part of our lives, a part of the wedding. I couldn't take that!
Barbara: No, I'm sure you couldn't.
Henry: I didn't mean that the way it sounded.
Barbara: Really? You mean honest?
Henry: I just -- I miss you, Barbara. I'm -- I'm trying not to, but I do. And if Vienna were to wear one of your dresses, it would be very --
Henry: Are you okay?
Barbara: I'm fine. It's not you. I ran into Paul earlier.
Henry: Oh. What did he do?
Barbara: He reprimanded me.
Henry: 'Cause you and I were --
Barbara: Because he doesn't approve of us. And even though I told him there is no more us anymore -- he's my son. He doesn't want me involved in his life anymore.
Henry: Well, then, he's out of his mind, because anybody would be lucky to have you love them.
Henry: Bubbles, this is an absolute nightmare! We have got to do something about this mess!
Vienna: What's an absolute nightmare? And what does Katie have to do with it?
Henry: Hello, my darling. Mwah! I was hoping that you would be here. We have got so much more wedding stuff to talk about.
Henry: And I know how you love that, talking about our future.
Vienna: Yes, you said it was some sort of a catastrophe. What -- what is it?
Henry: Well, it's -- actually, it's a small little problem, really. Uh, Barbara has said no to making the wedding dress.
Vienna: No! She did? Why?
Henry: Well, you know, she's busy. She doesn't really do that sort of stuff anymore.
Vienna: My God. I can't believe this is happening.
Henry: I'm so sorry. I know you had your heart set on that dress.
Vienna: Oh, it was perfect.
Vienna: Everything is falling apart.
Katie: You guys, I'm so sorry. I just -- I have to leave for a little bit. Would you mind watching Jacob for me? I promise I won't be long.
Henry: Where are you going?
Katie: You need time alone with your fiancée, and I'm giving it to you. He should stay asleep till I get back, so make yourselves at home, talk, kiss. Enjoy.
Henry: Subtle, isn't she?
Vienna: Katie's right. We haven't been talking or kissing enough. Is there something going on you should tell me about?
Henry: Like what?
Henry: Whoa, whoa. Somebody's up early. Uh, I'll go get him.
Henry: Look who's here.
Vienna: Aw. Isn't he the sweetest? Hi, Jacob!
Vienna: Hi. You're so good with him, Henry.
Henry: We're old pals, aren't we?
Vienna: So, you spent a lot of time over here while I was gone.
Henry: Yeah, yeah. Quite a bit, actually. Katie needed the help, and I wanted to get our relationship back on track. And, uh, it's not really a hardship looking after this little guy.
Vienna: You know, our baby would have been just a little older than Jacob. I think about the baby we lost all the time. Do you?
Henry: Yeah. Yeah, I do.
[Knock on door]
Vienna: Oh, God, I'm glad you're here.
Barbara: Something tells me I should have gotten out while I had the chance.
Vienna: Please, Barbara, I need your help. Can you make me the most beautiful bride Henry has ever seen?
Henry: Jacob, pal, you have no idea how complicated it is being a man. And women don't make it easy.
Vienna: I know you told Henry that you wouldn't want to design my wedding dress, but can't you please reconsider?
Barbara: You know, it's just not possible. I don't do that kind of work anymore.
Vienna: Oh, but Barbara, it would mean so much to me if you do it. I'll pay anything. And I promise you, you're gonna get a lot of good publicity. And quite frankly, I think you owe it to me after what happened between you and Henry.
Barbara: All right, fine. I will design your dress for you. Oh.
Vienna: Thank you. Can we get started right away?
Barbara: Sure. Um, paper and pencil over there.
Barbara: I'll get the measuring tape.
Vienna: Oh, and I have a list of all the changes I want. Can I just leave it here?
Barbara: That would be fine.
Vienna: It's so nice of you to come out of retirement this way.
Barbara: I haven't retired. I'm too young to retire. I've simply moved on to other areas of my business. Arms up.
Vienna: Oh, and you might want to leave a little room around my waist.
Barbara: And why is that?
Vienna: For the baby. By the time I'm walking down the aisle, I'll be pregnant with Henry's child.
