Henry and Casey commiserate at Yo's about fatherhood and women, while Vienna confesses to Katie that she's not really pregnant and she slept with Katie. She begs Katie to help her keep her secret, planning to get pregnant eventually. Vienna finds Henry and Casey at Yo's and is immediately worried that Casey told Henry that he thinks the baby is his. He didn't, and Katie also decides to support Vienna and not tell her best friend Henry the truth.
Today’s episode was directed by Sonia Blangiardo and written by Susan Dansby.

Henry: Vienna had a miscarriage last year. It was really rough on her.
Casey: I remember what it did to Katie, too.
Henry: Yeah. It's -- it's the worst. So I told her that we would try again. We'd have lots of babies one day.
Casey: So you didn't mean it?
Henry: Deep down -- I know that I never wanted to have to go through that pain again. And yet here I am.
Casey: Tough spot to be in.
Henry: Yeah. What are you talking about? You don't know anything about this stuff. You're just a young man.
Casey: Um, I got Gwen pregnant when we were still in high school.
Henry: I forgot about that.
Henry: Yeah. Didn't you deny that the baby was yours?
Henry: Yeah, okay.
Henry: I -- I feel you. I feel you.
Casey: But what's holding you back? I mean, you're working. You have money. You love Vienna, right?
Henry: Yeah. She's a remarkable woman.
Casey: Well, then, the two of you are set. Why not have a baby?
Henry: Look, my biological father was a psychotic, and -- and the guy that raised me was never around. What the hell do I know about raising kids?
Casey: But you do want a baby?
Henry: I want the baby to have a good dad, and that's not me.
Henry: I was married before, you know.
Casey: To Katie.
Henry: To Katie. Yeah, wonderful woman. But she was in love with mike, and -- and she dumped me for mike. Anyhow, that's the thing about Vienna. Uh, since she met me, there was no one for her but me. And, um --
Casey: Yeah, actually, yes.
Henry: Uh man, I'm sorry, Casey. I didn't mean to bring up aborted wedding memories.
Casey: No. I mean, I'm over it. Really, it's fine. It's fine.
Henry: Fine, right. You're over it. You do not get over your fiancé sleeping with another man while she's your fiancé. Sorry, it's just -- what a slimeball that Mick guy is. What -- what kind of guy does that?
Casey: I don't know. It happens. I mean, like, everyone already knew they were still together.
Henry: Yeah. We live in this town the size of a postage stamp. Everybody knows everything about everybody.
Henry: How is Alison?
Casey: I mean, we're cool. She's actually helping me out with something that I got going on right now.
Henry: Oh, yeah? What's that?
Vienna: I thought you might be -- here.
Vienna: What are you doing here, Casey?
Casey: Just shooting some pool, having some drinks.
Vienna: You're drunk. You're both drunk.
Henry: We've had quite the chat. We have been talking about life and love, fatherhood, you.
Vienna: What are you trying to do?
Casey: I didn't say anything.
Henry: That's not true, Casey. You said quite a bit. You have got some explaining to do.
Vienna: I -- I'm pregnant with your baby, and that's all that matters. How could you?
Casey: I -- I didn't do anything.
Vienna: Yeah, but Henry just said that --
Casey: No, I -- I didn't tell Henry anything he didn't already know.
Henry: Yeah. "Life is hard. Fatherhood is hard." There's no breaking news there.
Vienna: So what is it I have to explain?
Henry: You are pregnant. What are you doing in a bar?
Vienna: I was looking for you. And now I've found you, and I'm going to bring you home.
Henry: What did I tell you? She adores me.
Vienna: You know what I'm thinking?
Henry: Yeah. No bedroom games tonight, liebchen. I've had one too many martinis.
Vienna: Yeah, but I'm thinking that we should call off the formal wedding.
Henry: You want to call off the wedding?
Vienna: I want to call off the fuss and the frills. That's not our style anyway.
Henry: Simple you want, simple it is.
Vienna: Yeah, that way we can just get married right away.
Henry: Right away?
Vienna: Yeah, forget about the wedding planner, the flowers, the caterer, the band.
Henry: Yeah, yeah, yeah. How right away is "right away"?
Vienna: We can do it at al'S. That's where we've -- we've been our happiest.
Henry: Yeah. So many nights, so many booths at all's. Happy, happy, happy.
Vienna: Oh, yeah, but I just want to make you happy. I just want to love you. I just want to put the wedding plans out of your mind. So what do you say? Let's get happy.
Vienna: You know, we can play drunken sailor and saucy barmaid.
Henry: Mm, yeah. Saucy, pregnant barmaid?
Vienna: Yes. You can be the sailor who got me pregnant.
Henry: But I'm also the dad, and I don't want to do anything that could hurt the baby. You can't be too careful, baby.
Vienna: Oh, but I talked to the doctor, and he said it was fine!
Henry: Really? I would like to talk to him. That would make me feel better. Why don't I call him, see if I can make an appointment?
Vienna: No. I'd love to do that, but he's away. He'll be back next week.
Henry: I'm sure he has someone filling in for him.
Vienna: No! I don't want to see another doctor. I don't want to see any doctor. I just -- I want to make love to you, and you act as if you -- you don't want me at all!
Henry: No, that is not it. That is not it.
Vienna: Okay. Well, then, prove it to me.
[ Knock at door ]
Henry: Whoa. Whoa, whoa, whoa. Who could that be?
Vienna: Katie, this is really not a good time.
Henry: Come on in. Come on. We always have time for friends.
Katie: I'm sorry to barge in like this, but I just felt like I had to do this now.
Vienna: This isn't a good time.
Katie: I won't stay long. I just -- I wanted to give you this.
Vienna: What is it?
Katie: See for yourself.
Vienna: A garter?
Katie: It's the one I wore when I married brad. I know it sounds silly, but we were so happy together, I thought it might bring you luck. And it can be your something borrowed when you marry Henry.
Vienna: No. That's not silly at all. That's wonderful. You really understand.
Katie: I do. I know what it's like to want to be loved. And now that brad's gone, I'm scared that I'm never going to find that kind of love again.
Henry: I -- I don't want to hear that. I don't want to hear that. No one knows what their future will bring.
Katie: I do. I know that the future will be great for the two of you, as long as you're good to each other and honest with each other.
