Vienna: Oh, come on. I hate that you're rushing off. We had such a wonderful evening, and night and morning. Let's try for a new record.
Henry: I thought we just did.
Vienna: No, let's go for a new one. Let's top ourselves.
Henry: Oh, I would love to, Liebchen. But I got to go.
Vienna: Where? What are you doing? Where are you going?
Henry: It's business, Liebchen -- business. Remember that meeting about that new venture? Well, it's been rescheduled for this morning.
Vienna: Are you sure that's all that's going on?
Henry: Yes. Of course, I'm sure. Why would you ask that?
Vienna: I don't know. You've seemed a little preoccupied lately.
Henry: Well, I am preoccupied. I am preoccupied with giving our little pumpkin the best life that we possibly can. Remember, I gave away the Stenbeck fortune before I knew that we were going to be pregnant.
Vienna: Yeah, well, so, are you sorry now that you gave away the inheritance to fund the new wing at the hospital?
Henry: No. That's not what I'm saying at all. No, no, no. I'm just saying I'm -- I'm a working Joe again. I've got to get out there and hustle. [Chuckles] Money never sleeps, and neither can I.
Vienna: I love you so much. I am the happiest and luckiest woman in the entire world.
Henry: So am I. So am I. I'm the luckiest man. I'm the happiest, luckiest man in the world. I got to get going. What are you gonna do?
Vienna: I don't know. Well, I'll figure something out.
Henry: Okay. Stay out of trouble.
Vienna: Only if you do.
Henry: See you later.
Vienna: Can't wait. [Sighs]
Casey: You know, you've been a real big help, Ali. Thank you. Most ex-fiancées would be gloating over the mess I stepped in.
Alison: It's not a mess, okay? It's a baby, quite possibly your baby.
Casey: Yes, which is driving me crazy, 'cause I don't know for sure.
Alison: Well, there's also the possibility that it isn't your baby. I mean, I don't know, Vienna could have stuff going on in her life that you have no idea about.
Casey: To tell you the truth, I wish that was the case.
Alison: Yeah, I know you do, and I don't blame you. But I also know that if it is your baby that you will step up and do the right thing.
Casey: Absolutely. I would. I just -- I hope I don't have to.
Henry: Don't have to what?
Casey: Pull another double shift at the hospital.
Henry: Well, take my advice, Casey. Never look a gift paycheck in the mouth.
Casey: And speaking of overtime, it looks like you pulled triple time.
Henry: Yeah, I guess I kind of did. Hi, Alison.
Alison: Hello. And good-bye. I've got to run. So we'll talk later?
Casey: Yes. Thank you. Thank you again.
Alison: Of course. I'm happy to help you.
Casey: Henry, can I buy you a drink?
Henry: It's a little early, don't you think?
Casey: Is it? I mean, it's got -- it's got to be happy hour somewhere, right?
Henry: That's a great point. That's such a great point. And what are bloody marys for anyway but for the morning after?
Casey: That is what I'm talking about.
Henry: Absolutely. Hey, Bartender.
Henry: I love the taste of vodka and horseradish in the morning.
Casey: Can I ask you something? Do you think it's crazy for me to try and maybe get back together with Alison?
Henry: Not if you think you should.
Casey: I mean, we did some pretty messed-up things, and not just once. I'm talking a couple of times.
Henry: Relationships are hard. They take time.
Casey: What about you and Vienna? How did you get her to fall back in love with you again?
Henry: Well, that's not an easy question to answer. Can I have another one?
Casey: But you guys are back together, right, I mean like 100%?
Henry: We're having a baby, aren't we?
Casey: Yeah. Wow. I mean, I bet that was a surprise.
Henry: Why would you say that?
Casey: I'm just saying, you know, things come at you really fast and --
Henry: Yeah. I've hardly had a chance to breathe.
Vienna: What, this is your so-called business meeting -- having bloody marys with Casey?
Henry: This isn't what it looks like.
Vienna: I don't believe you. What's going on?
Vienna: I'm serious, Henry. What are you two doing drinking bloody marys before lunch?
Casey: The bloody marys were my idea.
Henry: Yeah, we're just killing time, and the guy who I was supposed to meet called and said he was running late.
Vienna: And what's this man's name?
Henry: Cobbler -- Jackson Cobbler -- and he said he was going to be a few minutes -- ten, exact -- and look. The time has flown. I've got to run, Baby.
Vienna: But Henry --
Henry: I will -- I will finish with Cobbler, and we'll get together and have lunch, yes? Casey, thank you for the drink. And, uh, good luck on what we were talking about.
Casey: Thanks, man. You too.
Vienna: What did he mean, "Good luck"? And what were you two really talking about?
Casey: I was just trying to find out how serious the two of you really are.
Vienna: We're in love. I told you that. I have kept nothing from you.
Casey: Really? Then what's the name of your doctor? And don't try to do this "Gravid" trick again.
Vienna: It's none of your business.
Casey: I looked into your medical files, Vienna. You've not seen one single ob-gyn in this town, which means obviously you're hiding something, like who the father of this baby is.
Vienna: You know what? You're impossible. I wish I had never had that romp with you in that hospital room.
Casey: But you did. And not just there, either. So that makes it my business, especially if this baby turns out to be mine. And trust me, one way or another, I'm gonna find out.
Vienna: My God. We've got to do something. Casey saw my medical file, so he thinks I'm hiding something.
Katie: You are hiding something.
Vienna: Katie, please. You have to help me before Casey finds out that the baby isn't Henry's.
Katie: Do you hear yourself? There is no baby.
Vienna: But there will be soon, because Henry and I -- we're back to our fantastic, glorious lovemaking! We did it twice last night and once this morning. So if we keep it up --
Katie: Okay, too much information.
Vienna: Yeah, but, you know, with time, I will get pregnant.
Katie: Okay, this has to stop, Vienna. You have got to come clean to Henry.
Vienna: No, no, I can't. I can't. This will work. I'm certain. I just -- I just need a little bit more time.
Henry: Katie, I have got to talk to you about Vienna.
Vienna: What are you doing here? What happened to Mr. Cobbler?
Vienna: The last time I checked, there was no Jackson Cobbler living here with Katie.
Katie: Who's Jackson Cobbler?
Henry: He's just a potential business associate. And you know what? He canceled on me again. I'm beginning to think the guy is a flake.
Vienna: What are you doing here?
Henry: I called you. I couldn't get through. I was in some kind of dead zone or something.
Henry: So I thought I would just pay a little visit to the little guy.
Henry: Yeah, really. Um, what are you doing here?
Vienna: Planning the wedding, silly, of course. What else? Right, Katie?
Katie: Yeah, right.
Henry: Shouldn't we be doing that together?
Vienna: No, because I have a big surprise in store for you, so you shouldn't even be here. You should be going right now.
Henry: Uh, what about my visit to Jacob?
Katie: You can take him for a walk.
Vienna: That's an excellent idea. It's a beautiful day.
Henry: But --
Vienna: No buts. No buts. We have important wedding talk, so shoo. Just go.
Henry: Fine, fine. Okay, fine. Shoo. Uh, how long should I be gone for?
Vienna: Take your time. We'll -- we'll be a while.
Henry: All right. Come on, Jacob.
Vienna: Oh, God. Katie, you really have to help me. You still have access to the hospital files, right?
Katie: No, not anymore.
Vienna: You got to know somebody who does, somebody who would do you a favor.
Katie: What kind of favor?
Vienna: I need proof that I'm pregnant.
Katie: What kind of proof?
Vienna: Written proof.
Katie: You're not talking about falsifying your medical records?
Vienna: It's the only way. Otherwise Henry will find out that -- that there is no baby and that the baby that isn't there could really be Casey's.
Katie: God help me, that actually made sense.
Henry: Don't get me wrong, Jacob. It's -- it's not that I don't want to be a father. And I -- I do want to get married. I should be the happiest guy in town, right? Vienna is -- she's so beautiful. You know that. And she's -- she's to die for. Why doesn't it seem right, man? Something has changed. We used to be perfect together. Now -- I just feel like -- I can't explain it. Something is fundamentally different, and I just can't figure it out.
Barbara: Henry, who are you talking to?
Henry: Uh, Jacob and I were just discussing baseball.
Henry: The national pastime, the -- the sport of heroes.
Barbara: Yes, yes. I'm familiar with it. What couldn't you figure out?
Henry: Nothing. It's nothing. How are you?
Barbara: I'm fine. Oh. Look how big he's gotten to be.
Barbara: How about you? Any more panic attacks?
Henry: Not recently. Thank you for that.
Barbara: You're welcome.
Henry: Do you want to get some coffee? Uh, Jacob and I were just heading over to Al's.
Barbara: I -- I have some shopping I need to do.
Henry: Yeah, sure. Okay.
Barbara: But, um, sure. I -- I could use a cup of coffee and a chat.
Henry: Is everything okay?
Barbara: Oh, well, if you consider my daughter-in-law is accusing me of drugging my ex-daughter-in-law okay, then yes, life is peachy.
Henry: Wait. Whoa, whoa, whoa. Wait a second, wait a second. What are you -- are you telling me that, uh, Emily is accusing you of drugging Meg?
Barbara: Ah, can you believe that?
Henry: It doesn't matter. What matters, does anyone else believe it?
Barbara: Well, Emily is manipulative and very clever, and so she's doing her best to make Paul feel that I'm guilty. I just hope she doesn't succeed.
Henry: Well, yeah. But you and Paul haven't exactly had the most trusting relationship over the years.
Barbara: Well, no. But, you know, things have been so much better lately. And if she undoes that with one lie --
Henry: Fight back. Prove her wrong. You're innocent, right? That shouldn't be so hard to do.
Barbara: Thank you.
Henry: For what?
Barbara: For saying exactly what I needed to hear. You always seem to understand.
Henry: Yeah. Of course, of course. We're still friends, aren't we?
Henry: Look, if you want, I'll talk to Paul. I'll tell him there's no way that you would do anything to harm Eliza's mother.
Barbara: There is no need, really.
Henry: Are you sure?
Barbara: I am -- I'm sure. Paul will go over to my side. I'm confident of that, eventually.
Henry: And then -- then what?
Barbara: Well, then I hope that he will see Emily for the conniver that she is.
Henry: Yeah. Be careful. She's very good at what she does. I know from experience.
Barbara: She might be good, but I'm better.
Henry: Is there anything I can do to help?
Barbara: I'm just very grateful for your friendship, since I can't have anything else.
Henry: Friendship lasts longer.
Barbara: Yes, it does. And it's safer.
Henry: What's wrong with safe?
Barbara: You tell me. Well, I think I'd probably better go. I've taken up enough of your Jacob time as it is.
Henry: Yeah. This is the most relaxed I've felt all day. Trust me.
Barbara: Me too.
Henry: Good luck.
Henry: Well, there goes one classy lady, Jacob. Trust me, you could do a lot worse than fall in love with a woman like that when you grow up. You know what I'm saying?
Vienna: Henry --
Henry: Hey, Vienna. Hey, what -- what's wrong? Is something wrong with the baby?
Vienna: No, it's not the baby. It's everything. I -- I think you're lying to me about these business meetings. There is no Jackson Cobbler, is there?
Henry: Yeah, of course there's a Jackson Cobbler. Why would you think that there wasn't?
Henry: No, that sounds more like hormone swings. It's very common with pregnancies. You know that. [Voice breaking]
Vienna: Okay, well, please tell me that I'm not losing you.
Henry: No, Baby, of course not. Of course you're not losing me. I'm not going anywhere.
