Barbara: Please. You're not welcome here.

Henry: I don't believe you.

Barbara: Do you want me to have security throw you out?

Henry: Yeah. Let them try. When you were in that warehouse, you called out to me, and don't you dare try to deny it, because I heard you loud and clear. And the fact that it came through on Jacob's baby monitor when I happened to be standing there, if that's not destiny, then I don't know what is.

Barbara: If you had heard me and found me, maybe I would believe this.

Henry: The monitor doesn't come with a GPS, Barbara.

Barbara: You know what? You only found me because Paul smelled smoke when I nearly burned down Fairwinds.

Henry: No. I am the only one that never stopped looking for you.

Barbara: So you claim.

Henry: You have no idea what was going on while you were gone. You don't know how I tore my heart out not knowing what was happening to you.

Barbara: Look, Henry, you're really pushing it here, because if -- if you don't go away, you're the one that's gonna need medical attention.

Henry: You want to hit me?

Barbara: Don't tempt me. Don't tempt me.

Henry: No, no, go ahead. Knock yourself -- knock yourself out. Go ahead and hit me if that's gonna make you feel any better!

Chris: My, my. Somebody's feeling better.

Barbara: That was meant for Henry. He wasn't supposed to duck.

Henry: Well, it's a reflex. Look, if you want to take another stab at it, go ahead.

Chris: No, no, no, no, no, no, no. Probably not a good idea. She needs some rest. But I'm happy to see that you're well enough to have a pillow fight.

Henry: When Vienna and I were happy, she got pregnant for real.

Barbara: I know all about it.

Henry: Right. And I didn't want kids. I didn't want anything to do with kids. I mean, the way I was raised? Hell, you met Audrey. And then you throw Stenbeck into that genetic cocktail? I thought there was a 75% chance that I would have a psychotic. I didn't like those odds.

Barbara: I can't blame you for that, no.

Henry: Okay. But then it was really happening. The baby became real. And I loved that kid. And then Vienna had a miscarriage, and that was a huge moment in my life. I was a changed man after that. Then she told me she got pregnant again, Barbara. I -- I couldn't walk away from her and from that child. I didn't want to be like my mom. I didn't want to be like my dad. I wanted to be a better human being than those two people.

Barbara: The bar's not raised very high there, you know. I don't mean to make light of it, but I just don't think it's a really good excuse for marrying someone you don't love.

Henry: You know children change everything. You would walk through fire for your kids.

Barbara: Yes, and I have.

Henry: Then why can't you see that I could feel the same way? You weren't here when I found out that Vienna was lying. I was so unbelievably angry. I was so hurt. But I was relieved.

Barbara: About the baby?

Henry: No, about Vienna. The fact that she was lying meant that I was free. I was free to be with you. We could be together. But you had disappeared.

Barbara: I didn't do that on my own!

Henry: I know, I know. I know that, and I should have known that then. I just -- Barbara, I was messed up, okay? Suddenly, there was no child, and I know how much that I'd hurt you, and all I wanted to do was find you and say how sorry I was. [ Henry sighs ] But if too much has happened and if you feel like you can't give me another chance, then I won't stand in your way.

Barbara: Good.

Henry: But before I let you go, I am gonna tell you the one thing that I've wanted to tell you since the last time I saw you, and that is that I love you, Barbara. I love you and only you. I think you know that. I think you've always known. I think that my love helped you survive in that warehouse.

Barbara: Maybe you're right. You know, I thought about you all the time. I thought about my feelings for you, and sometimes I hated you, and it was all messed up, but I had no one to talk to. So I talked to this doll -- this big clown doll, and he started to talk to me. I know it sounds crazy, I know, but he started to talk to me in your voice. And he comforted me, and he pumped me up, and he held me, and we danced, and that's -- and that's how low I sunk.

Henry: That doll brought us to you. Don't you see? This isn't some random act here. We were meant to be together. We fought it off, but here we are! We've got another chance here. And Vienna and Iris, they can't stop us. Nobody can.

Barbara: That's not true.

Henry: I know they can't.

Barbara: You know, Vienna and iris, they didn't keep us apart. We let that happen. And they're gone now. And we're here. Just us, and just as unreliable. I'm gonna -- I'm gonna check myself out of here, and I'm gonna go home, alone.

Henry: Barbara.

Barbara: No, no, Henry. No.

[ Door closes ]

Barbara: Do you have any idea what I've been through? I'm sure you don't.

Katie: Actually, I do.

Barbara: I'm sorry. Yes, I know you do. I'm sorry.

Katie: It's all right. They're different, but equally hard to get over.

Barbara: I'm over it.

Katie: Are you?

Barbara: Yes.

Katie: Then you must be in some sort of shock, because that would be the only explanation for the way you've treated Henry.

Barbara: Excuse me?

Katie: And before you ask if Henry sent me here, he didn't.

Barbara: Look, I don't know what you're doing here, but you did everything you could to destroy my relationship with Henry, including help Vienna deceive him into a marriage.

Katie: I know. I should never have done that. I'm sorry. I'm so sorry.

Barbara: Feel better now?

Katie: I'm part of the reason this happened. I was just so scared to move forward that I held onto the past. I knew that I couldn't bring brad back, but Henry and Vienna were our best friends. So I figured that, if they could find their way back to each other, maybe I would feel the way that I used to.

Barbara: That's so crazy, I almost get it.

Katie: And Vienna was so desperate to be married that she lost all perspective, and I completely enabled her. But if I hadn't, you and Henry would be happy together right now.

Barbara: I don't know about that.

Katie: I do. Iris never would have been able to kidnap you, because Henry wouldn't have let her get to you. He would do anything for you, Barbara. He wants to see you happy and healthy more than anything on this earth. He is madly in love with you. He never gave up. He never stopped looking for you. He even put on a dress to try to help find you.

Barbara: That's just a typical day in his life.

Katie: And when nobody else believed that you were in trouble, Henry stayed the course. So, please, please do not hate him. Hate me. I'm the one that helped Vienna trick him. Henry was just trying to do the right thing. He's the only one in this whole mess actually who didn't do anything wrong. Welcome back, Barbara. You were missed.

Henry: This is for real, Barbara. I want you to marry me.

Barbara: Well, you better get down on one knee and start over.

Henry: Barbara Ryan, will you marry me, and will you be my wife for the rest of our lives and then some?

Barbara: There won't be any babies, Henry. I'm old enough --

Henry: Stop. Everything I want is standing right here in front of me. I am dead serious. I cannot live without you. Please, marry me.

Barbara: Yes. Yes, I will marry you. [Cries]
