Vienna: Oh, come on. Come on, please. I'm gonna close my eyes, and when I open them, you're gonna be positive. Counting to five. One, two, three, four, five. Oh, damn it!
[Knock on door]
Henry: Hey, Liebchen. I've got applesauce and white bread, crackers, all kinds of things that won't upset your stomach.
Vienna: Oh, you're so sweet, Henry.
Henry: Are you still having the morning sickness?
Vienna: Yeah, a little bit.
Henry: Here, try the crackers now. That worked last time.
Vienna: No, that's really not what's gonna make me feel better.
Henry: Okay. Well, I got other stuff in here.
Vienna: It's not in the bag, either.
Henry: Did I forget something?
Henry: Why don't I go back to the store?
Vienna: No, no, no. It's not in the store, either. It's right here. Here.
Henry: Maybe this isn't such a good idea.
Vienna: Why not?
Henry: This early in the pregnancy? I mean, who knows what could happen?
Vienna: Oh, nothing could happen.
Henry: Yeah. We don't want to take any chances, not after last time.
Vienna: That is so sweet, Henry, but I spoke to the doctor, and he said it's perfectly safe.
[Knock on door]
Vienna: They'll go away.
Henry: No, but it -- it could be important.
Barbara: Is this a bad time? I can see you're busy. So, I just wanted to drop this off.
Vienna: Is it finished?
Barbara: Not quite. I am out of the wedding dress business. You'll have to find someone else.
Vienna: This is a little sudden, isn't it?
Henry: We can find another seamstress.
Barbara: I'm sure you will.
Vienna: Well, maybe it's for the best anyways, given our creative differences. In fact, I think I'll go in a totally different direction.
Barbara: Good luck with that.
Henry: Barbara --
Barbara: I have an appointment.
Vienna: Now, where were we?
Henry: How could you be so ungrateful?
Henry: She did all this work, and you just dismiss her?
Vienna: She didn't do that much work. And it certainly wasn't good work, and she probably worked off an old pattern or something.
Henry: It's not old. It's vintage.
Vienna: Oh, who cares?
Henry: I thought you did. You're the one that picked it out. You said it was perfect. You said it was everything that you wanted.
Vienna: Well, I changed my mind.
Henry: What? So you couldn't at least say thank you?
Vienna: For what? She didn't finish the dress, and she threw it in my face.
Henry: That's not true.
Vienna: Why are you defending her?
Henry: I'm not. I'm trying to be fair.
Vienna: Not to me, you arenít. What are you doing?
Henry: I'm gonna give this back to her. Maybe some other bride would like it.
Vienna: Who cares about another bride?
[Cell phone beeping]
Casey: Hey, Baby. Itís me. I just walked past the storage closet and couldn't help thinking of you. Call me when you get this.
[Knock on door]
Henry: Barbara. Oh, sorry. Is Ms. Ryan in? Wait, wait, wait. Wait a second. Can I see this? What happened to this? Uh, I don't think this was meant to be thrown away. This meant a lot to Ms. Ryan.
Maid: It was in the trash.
Henry: Okay. Well, can I hold on -- I'm gonna hold on to this. My name's actually on it right here. See?
Maid: All right, Sir.
Henry: Thank you.
Henry: Vienna? Vienna, are you in there? "Dear Henry, I'm sorry we fought. Went for a prenatal exam. I'll be back soon. Love, Vienna." [Sighs]
Henry: Thank God I found you.
Katie: Oh, I was just leaving.
Henry: You got to help me.
Katie: With what?
Henry: My love life.
Katie: Oh, you came to the wrong place.
Henry: Vienna is pregnant.
Henry: Really. We just found out.
Katie: Oh, Henry, that's great! Oh, it's --
Henry: Are you all right?
Katie: Yeah. I was just -- I was just remembering the last time, you know, when you guys were so excited and then you lost the baby. It's just so great. You're gonna get another chance.
Henry: Yeah, yeah. It is.
Katie: It's not?
Henry: No. I said it is.
Katie: You're happy about this, aren't you?
Henry: I'm absolutely happy. This is what I've always wanted.
Katie: Well, then why does it look like you want to jump off a cliff?
Henry: Vienna wants to get married right away.
Katie: Well, that's probably a good idea. You want the baby to have a stable home life.
Henry: Yeah, yeah. I know.
Katie: And you guys are completely in love, right?
Katie: So, what's the problem?
Henry: I didn't say there was a problem.
Katie: Well, you said you needed my advice.
Henry: Okay. Well, there's no problem.
Katie: Okay, okay. No problem.
Henry: 'Cause there isnít.
Katie: Right. So, what did you want to ask me?
Henry: I'm not sure what she wants.
Henry: Vienna, yes. Lately, she doesn't seem like herself.
Katie: Well, she's not. She's pregnant. It changes you.
Henry: Right. Um, how am I supposed to help her?
Katie: Just treat her like the most beautiful woman who's ever walked the face of the earth, and you need to propose, the old-fashioned way, down on one knee with all the bells and whistles.
Henry: Okay. Are we clear on the plan? Now, I go in, I drop to one knee.
Taffy: And then I throw the rose petals, huh?
Henry: No, Taffy. You don't do that until she says yes.
Taffy: But what if she doesn't?
Henry: Then this will be a complete disaster, won't it? Same goes for you, okay? You don't start singing until she says yes, okay? That's when the party starts. Not before. You got it?
Taffy: Got it.
Henry: Got it. Okay. Let's do this.
Casey: Off, off.
