Will: Can I help you?

Cleo: No, it's fine. I just dropped my notebook.

Gwen: Here, I'll get it for you.

Maddie: Thank God. I was so worried about you. Are you okay? You walked out of the wedding, you just disappeared!

Henry: Yeah, I'm sorry I worried you.

Maddie: Are you okay? What are you drinking?

Henry: Ginger ale.

Maddie: Henry, you only drink ginger ale when you're really upset.

Henry: Well, of course I'm upset, Maddie. I broke Vienna’s heart, and it's the one thing I was trying not to do.

Maddie: Well, what did you think? She wasn't going to be happy that you left her at the altar, Henry.

Henry: No, I knew she would be mad and embarrassed. I just -- I also knew it would be a bad decision to go through with this marriage. It would ruin the rest of her life. I just can't stop seeing the look on her face.

Maddie: She was in shock. And it's going to take some time, but eventually, she'll get over it.

Henry: I hurt her, Maddie. And she doesn't deserve that.

Katie: I don't want to believe that I'm the only person Henry will ever love. Or that there's no room left in his heart for anyone else. I have to believe that if you love someone, and you lose that love, your heart will find room for someone else. And that love will be stronger, and it will last this time, because you're stronger and wiser and you're just too stubborn to let it go. Don't you want to believe that? I mean, isn't that what you're hoping?

[Jack kisses Katie]

Brad: Well, don't stop on my account.

Brad: You two looked cozy. What's going on?

Katie: Nothing. We were just cleaning. Vienna got a little carried away.

Brad: Yeah, I was here. Remember?

Katie: Oh, right.

Brad: So, big brother been taking your mind off things?

Jack: I'm going to warm up some coffee. You want some coffee, Brad?

Katie: That is a good idea. I will help you.

Jack: Thank you. Excuse me.

Katie: I'll get the cups.

Jack: Thank you.

Katie: Will Emma want some?

Jack: No, emma only drinks coffee in the morning.

Katie: Okay, so that's you, me -- will you want a cup? Oh, Vienna will want one.

Brad: Or two or three. Where is she?

Katie: Upstairs with Emma.

Brad: And you two have been down here all by your lonesome?

Katie: We were cleaning.

Brad: So you say.

Jack: Hey, you want to make yourself useful, you can clear the table.

Brad: Well, I don't want to interrupt whatever it is you two got going on.

Katie: We're having coffee!

Brad: Well, how do you take your coffee, Katie? With lots of cream and sugar? Because Brother Jack, here, he's a milk and no sugar man.

Katie: I don't need sugar.

Brad: Yeah, you do. Jack, make sure you give her lots of sugar. I mean, I'd get it for her, but I don't think she'd let me put my spoon in her cup.

Jack: And why do you think that is, Brad?

Brad: You know what? Jack, I don't know. But it does keep me up nights.

Jack: That's a crying shame.

Katie: Here you go.

Brad: Wait, are you blushing? What do you have to be ashamed of?

Jack: It's a scratch. Vienna clawed her.

Brad: Mmm -- I always knew that woman was dangerous. Did you -- did you wash it for her, Jack?

Katie: He took very good care of me, thank you.

Brad: I bet he did. I bet he did. You know, you can never be too careful. I mean, I learned that the hard way. You know, like, with television -- unlike police work -- I mean, your face is your fortune. I mean, you wouldn't want to have to sit out a couple shows while I took over. Unless of course, you know, things have changed and you've lost interest.

Jack: In you?

Vienna: Henry? Is that you?

Katie: Did you find Henry?

Brad: Oh, well, I'm glad you guys remembered what I'd been doing all morning. But then again, of course, you've been cleaning up.

Vienna: Is he here?

Katie: No, Sweetie, he's not.

Vienna: But -- but, Brad, he was going to go find him.

Brad: You know what, darling? I don't think Henry’s ready to be found. But hey, you know, it's his loss. He's a fool enough to walk out on a woman like you --

Vienna: No, I'm the fool for believing in love, for believing in Henry. You know, you can give this to your daughter, because I don't need it. Or Lily's girls. But tell them not to get their hopes up, because that story about little girls growing up, finding Prince Charming, that's a lie. Because he doesn't exist.

Brad: No, that is harsh. What? I mean, I still haven't given up the dream.

Katie: You shouldn't give away your dress, Vienna. Don’t.

Vienna: No, you know what? I don't need it, because I am never getting married.

Katie: Don't say that.

Vienna: No, I'm never getting married. Look at your poor face.

Katie: Oh, it's just a little scratch, it's no big deal. Don't worry about it.

Vienna: You know, you are the sweetest woman I've ever met. I don't deserve your friendship.

Katie: Please don't say that.

Vienna: I have made a decision.

Brad: That was quick.

Vienna: I am no longer going to impose on anybody anymore. I'm going home.

Katie: To Sweden?

Vienna: No. No. I can't afford the ticket to Sweden, because Henry has all my money.

Jack: Well, Vienna, you know you're more than -- you're more than welcome to stay here, as long as you like.

Vienna: Thank you, Jack, but I'm going back to the Lakeview. And I want you to take me.

Brad: Who, me?

Vienna: Yes.

Maddie: You need to give yourself some time.

Henry: Like what? The rest of my life?

Maddie: You'll find somebody else. And before you know it, you'll be picking out wedding rings.

Henry: Maddie, I had a beautiful woman standing right there in a white dress waiting for me to pull the trigger, and I couldn't do it. I'm not going to do that to myself or to anyone else ever again.

Maddie: So -- okay, I heard what you said at the wedding. That you didn't love her enough to marry her.

Henry: Don't remind me of that, please.

Maddie: But now it sounds like you don't even want to get married to anybody -- ever.

Henry: I don't know. I wanted the words to come out of my mouth. I wanted that to happen. I wanted to see the smile on her face -- and jump right in there and be a husband. I froze.

Maddie: What are you scared of?

Henry: I wish I did. I wish I did.

Maddie: Because you told me that when you and Katie got married, you were totally calm. Obviously, you weren't afraid then.

Henry: There was nothing to be afraid of. She's my best friend.

Maddie: Right. And I'm sorry. I don't mean to bring up a sore subject.

Henry: I know, she was in love with Mike.

Maddie: So, really -- I mean, there was a chance that it wasn't going to work out, and you knew that. Deep down, you knew that it wasn't actually a real wedding.

Henry: Well, it was damn good practice.

Maddie: Yes, but here we are.

Henry: You have had entirely too much therapy.

Maddie: Okay, can I tell you something? It's about me, not you.

Henry: Can I stop you?

Maddie: The biggest mistake I ever made was not telling anybody that I was raped. Okay? I -- it happened, and I didn't want to say anything about it, and I thought that it would just go away. Only, it didn’t. And the more I kept denying what I was feeling, the worse that it got.

Henry: I know you've been through a tough time, Sweetie, I know. But I think our situations are not very similar.

Maddie: No, you're not getting it. It's not the situation, it's what you do about it, how you handle it. You can sit here, sucking down this ginger ale, or you can face the fact that you messed up. I mean, I almost lost Casey because I couldn't face what happened to me. I don't want you to make that same mistake.

Henry: What do you suggest I do?

Maddie: Don't give up on love. There is a girl out there waiting for you. But you need to look at yourself if you're ever going to find happiness with her.

Cleo: I got it! Not to worry. Thanks, anyway.

Gwen: Okay. Did it get wet? Do you need a napkin?

Cleo: No, it's fine.

[Cell phone beeps]

[Jade sends Cleo a text to come outside, Cleo gets up and bumps into tables]

Will: Your friend's having some issues.

Gwen: Yeah, she's -- she's my friend. What?

Will: Nothing. I haven't seen you laugh like that in a while.

Gwen: Yeah, it's been a while.

Jade: What the hell do you think you're doing?

Cleo: Ow, ow, ow! I'm just studying!

Jade: Yeah? Where are your cds? Where are your pictures? I told you not to leave the motel!

Cleo: I know, but I had this really incredible --

Jade: Yeah? Well, if you know, then what are you doing? You could have ruined everything.

Cleo: I thought you said that I didn't look enough like her?

Jade: No, not yet, you don’t. So no more field trips, okay? This time we're going back to the room, and you're going to stay put.

Cleo: Come on, admit it, when I'm right next to her, we could be twins, right? It's like we were separated at birth.

Jade: Cleo, move.

Will: So you want to go see that Charlie Chaplin flick?

Gwen: Yeah, it'll be awesome.

Will: Yeah, it'll be fun.

Gwen: Mm-hmm.

[Cell phone rings]

Will: Hey, how are you? Yeah, tomorrow for breakfast. I can do that. Yeah, I'll get you caught up. Okay, I'll see you tomorrow.

Gwen: I don't even have to ask who that was.

Will: What do you mean?

Gwen: Oh, come on. It was Alison -- she couldn't even wait five minutes before she called you? "Will, I was wondering, could you meet me for breakfast tomorrow? I just want to talk to you about how much I missed you."

Will: It's cute when you're jealous.

Gwen: It really was her? I was just kidding. She's hitting on you already -- she just got back into town.

Will: Hitting on me?

Gwen: Well, yeah -- I mean, I was there. You said that you would call her. And she just called you.

Will: That was my friend, Neil. He was out sick last week from my econ class, and he needs his notes for the exam.

Gwen: It wasn't Alison?

Will: No. So this jealousy thing is real, huh?

Gwen: Duh, of course, it's real. You're my husband. Mine! Just wait -- just wait. When I have all my guy fans following me around, you see if you like it.

Will: Did you hear what you just said?

Gwen: I'm not really gonna do anything.

Will: No, you're talking about fans, which is talking about your singing career. You haven't said stuff like that in weeks.

Gwen: Yeah, it just kind of came out.

Will: Yeah, it came out because it felt right. So how's it feel right now?

Gwen: Good. Really good. Come here –

Cleo: Hey -- you don't need to push me! What? I was just doing research!

Jade: This -- this is research.

Cleo: No, I looked at the pictures. I listened to the cds, Jade. It's not enough!

Jade: Oh, so you just decide, "What the hell, I'm just gonna go and throw myself in front of Gwen and Will and blow up the whole plan before it even gets off the ground"?

Cleo: Relax. Gwen didn't see me.

Jade: But Will did. I saw him looking at you.

Cleo: He was looking at me? See, that even proves my point more. I look enough like Gwen, I could really be his type.

Jade: You know what? This is not working.

Cleo: What? I just left the motel room, big whoopdy doo -- it's not like I blew your entire plan!

Jade: You don't even know the plan.

Cleo: Well, maybe you should tell me.

Jade: Why would I tell you that? I told you to stay in the motel room, and you couldn't even do that!

Cleo: That's a very good point.

Jade: I turn my back on you for five minutes, and you're outside of Crash pretending to be Gwen -- and then you go to Al's, and you sit right down next to them?

Cleo: But there's a really good reason for that. You don't want me to just look like Gwen, you want me to be Gwen. And I can't do that from a stack of photographs. I have to see her move and how she breathes. I need to know how she laughs. I have to see her and hear her. I have to be near her, Jade.

Jade: It's not happening, Cleo -- it's not happening.

Cleo: I'm just trying to give you what you want.

Jade: I wanted you to stay in the hotel room. And if you can't do that, you're going to be on the next bus back to Turlock, you got that?

Cleo: Okay, I'm sorry. I hear you. I'm really sorry.

Jade: Apology not accepted.

Cleo: You know what? You don't have to be nasty. It's not like I left the motel room to go bowling or something, which is what I would really like to do. Because I haven't done that once. Not since I've been here -- the whole time! And the stupid TV here doesn't work, so I can't even watch the championships, and I don't know who's made it to the semifinals and who's been knocked out!

Jade: Okay, okay. I'm sorry I'm cramping your style.

Cleo: It's fine. I agreed to take this on -- and I'm doing the best job that I possibly can, but I would really appreciate it if you could just give me some small amount of consideration.

Jade: I gave you $1,000.

Cleo: That's just money, Jade. I'm talking about a little common courtesy. Politeness.

Jade: Okay, would you please do what I tell you to do?

Cleo: I'll do my best. Thank you very much. But I still think that if you want me to become Gwen, then I need some face time with her, and she wouldn't even have to see me. I could be hiding. You could come with me if you wanted.

Jade: Okay, yeah. I'd really enjoy that. You and I could hunker down underneath a table at Al's. Or maybe we could hide in the bushes in front of their house.

Cleo: They have a house?

Jade: Cleo, they have eyes. And now that you've thrown yourself in front of them at Al's, they will notice you again if they see you, especially if you're stalking them.

Cleo: I just dropped my notebook -- it was a little thing.

Jade: You collided with everything that wasn't nailed down in there, and they noticed!

Cleo: But they didn't see you, right? So it doesn't really matter. We can hide out together. Please, wait -- [In Gwen’s voice] Where the hell do you think you're going?

Henry: Have you talked to Vienna, or seen her since the wedding?

Maddie: No, she went inside afterwards, and we all thought it was best to just leave her alone. But I did talk to Emma this morning.

Henry: Has Vienna recovered?

Maddie: She polished off all the champagne and then broke into Emma’s elderberry wine.

Henry: That's my girl.

Maddie: And then she tore down all the wedding decorations and pretty much destroyed the cake -- and the kitchen.

Henry: Great. No more rustic evenings on the farm for me -- or holidays in Sweden.

Maddie: When was the last time you were in Sweden?

Henry: Thursday. She was the frozen north, I was the Mongol horde, storming in to stake my claim.

Maddie: See -- you guys do have a lot of fun together. And you love her.

Henry: I never said that I didn't have -- you know, feelings for the woman. It's just -- marriage is a big commitment!

Maddie: I know, I just -- I feel really bad for her. And she's been so nice to me, too -- she got me a room here, and she asked me to be her maid of honor.

Henry: She's a sweetheart.

Maddie: And now that Casey and I are back together, I finally know what it's like to love someone and have them love you back -- and give yourself to them.

Henry: Okay, good. We're just going to have this conversation for about 30 seconds, because I can't even believe we're talking about this -- but Maddie, you are being safe, right?

Maddie: How can I be anything when I'm not even allowed to see him?

Henry: Maddie --

Maddie: Yes, Henry, we are being safe. I finally start having sex, and --

Henry: Maddie! Maddie, come on --

Maddie: I might as well be a virgin, because --

Henry: Good, good!

Maddie: You know, for someone who just walked out on a wedding, you are being incredibly insensitive.

Henry: Wait, wait, wait, wait -- don't go, please. I'm sorry. I'm sorry -- I just -- I'm your brother, and I just have not accepted that you're all grown up. That's all.

Maddie: Yeah, well, if I were all grown up, they wouldn't be able to do this to me.

Henry: Have you called him?

Maddie: Not with his parents guarding the phone.

Henry: Do you want me to call him?

Maddie: No, no, no, no, no. I don't want you to get him in trouble.

Henry: Have you gone over there?

Maddie: Henry, he's on house arrest.

Henry: You're not. Just wait until his parents are gone, and then go over there.

Maddie: No, 'cause since his heart attack, Tom's been working at home a lot.

Henry: Yeah, but I'm sure he has to see clients at some point, go down to the courthouse. I'm not suggesting that you go against his parents' wishes here.

Maddie: I know. Thank you.

Henry: You're the best. Even with all this nonsense going on, you still take the time to take care of Vienna. I appreciate that.

Maddie: It's no effort. I like her. She's fun. And she actually has a soft spot, if you know where to look. Anyway, I feel for her.

Henry: Is there anything I can do? Short of eloping with her?

Maddie: You can talk to her. Think about it. If someone left you at the altar, wouldn't you want an explanation?

Brad: Have you had anything to eat since last night?

Vienna: Oh, you know what? That's a wonderful idea. Let's go have a drink.

Brad: No, no, no. You've had enough to drink for a while, Honey.

Vienna: Oh, don't be such a pooper scooper.

Brad: Pooper scooper? I think you mean party pooper.

Vienna: Oh, making promises you can't keep, just like Henry.

Brad: No, don't ever compare me to Henry. And you know, the only promise I made was to get you home -- that's exactly where we're going.

Vienna: Oh, and then what?

Brad: Bed.

Vienna: Oh, I can't wait.

Jack: Would you -- do you need help with that?

Katie: So, Brad and Vienna got off okay?

Jack: He's driving -- that's a start.

Katie: She could barely walk.

Jack: Elderberry wine will do that to you.

Katie: You sure it wasn't a mistake, letting him take her?

Jack: It was her idea.

Katie: I know, but I'm not worried about her, I'm worried about him.

Jack: What about him?

Katie: You know Brad -- he's going to do something, or say something. And before you know it, she's going to want to be jumping out of a window.

Jack: He's not going to let her do anything to herself.

Katie: You're gonna give him that?

Jack: And carfare. Katie --

Katie: Hmm?

Jack: About that kiss --

Jade: What did you just say?

Cleo: I was just trying to keep you from leaving.

Jade: No, no, no. Say what you said again. I don't need an explanation.

Cleo: Where the hell do you think you're going?

Jade: No, no, no. That's not how you said it. Say it again -- how you said it.

Cleo: You mean you want me to say it like Gwen? [ In Gwen’s voice ] Where the hell do you think you're going?

Jade: Say it again.

Cleo: I don't understand.

Jade: Say it how you said it -- but again.

Cleo: Where the hell do you think you're going?

Jade: That's amazing.

Cleo: It's good, right? See -- I told you. And I got all that just from 15 minutes of hearing her talk about how lucky she is.

Jade: How lucky she is?

Cleo: Yeah, like to have Will -- and have her life back, whatever. The point is -- is that it's really good, huh?

Jade: She doesn't deserve any of that stuff. She is a user and a liar. She deserves to lose all of that -- her precious little career, her gullible husband.

Cleo: He actually didn't seem that gullible, jade.

Jade: He still loves her, doesn't he? No matter how many times she lets him down. And that's not even the worst part. The worst part is that she always gets away with it -- again and again.

Cleo: Because he always takes her back?

Jade: No, no -- not just that. Because she never has to pay for anything. People are always cutting her slack. It's always -- "Poor Gwen. Oh, look what Gwen has to go through." Somebody else always gets blamed.

Cleo: Like you?

Jade: Yeah, yeah. Yeah, Will takes some of the blame. But yeah, usually, according to Gwen, things are my fault.

Cleo: That's not very fair. I'm sorry.

Jade: No, no. It is not. So, say that again -- say something like Gwen.

Cleo: Like what?

Jade: I don't know, anything. It's not like you're going to have a script. You're just going to have to you know, go with it -- make it up as it comes along.

Cleo: That's a very good point.

Jade: And you should do something about your hair. It's really distracting.

Cleo: Okay. [In Gwen’s voice] I'd like to thank everybody for coming out tonight. Thank you, thank you. I'm sending this song out to my husband, Will.

Jade: That's --

Cleo: It's pretty good, right?

Jade: It's not bad.

Cleo: I told you, I told you that it would pay off.

Jade: I'm not having this conversation with you again, Cleo. I cannot risk losing everything -- I can't send you out there as Gwen and have Will put two and two together. I mean, you've come a really long way, but we still have a lot of work to do, and you have to do things my way, all right? No sneaking out.

Cleo: Do you think you could pick me up a copy of "Bowling World"?

Jade: "Bowling World"?

Cleo: Yeah -- and I mean, if they don't have "Bowling World", you think you could get me "Bowling Monthly"? It's my favorite magazine. Or you could just bring me a computer.

Jade: I'm not getting you a computer, Cleo.

Cleo: 'Cause I had to leave mine back in Turlock.

Jade: Sorry.

Cleo: Well, I'm just saying, that way I could look up the scores whenever I wanted –

Katie: I don't think we need to make an issue, out of -- you know, out of a kiss. I mean, unless of course --

Jack: No, it was just a kiss. It was really nice, but we shouldn't make an issue out of it, you know, unless --

Katie: No, definitely not. I mean, we're friends, and we both have a lot of baggage, and that can make things kind of awkward.

Jack: If you let it.

Katie: And I don't want -- I mean, well I don't want to make an issue out of this. So, I think the best thing would -- I mean, if you agree -- would be to just not worry about it. Unless that's a problem.

Jack: I have no idea what you just said, but sure. I think.

Katie: Good. So we're good?

Jack: I hope so. Katie, listen –

Parker: Did Uncle Brad leave?

Jack: Yeah, he took Vienna back to the Lakeview.

Faith: She forgot her dress.

Jack: Yes, she did. We're going to take care of that for her -- for now.

Parker: So what happened to Henry?

Katie: Oh, you know what? I'm going to go out and look for him some more.

Jack: You want me to help you?

Katie: No, you just -- you hang out with the kids. I'll call you when I find him.

Brad: Okay, here we are. Safe home.

Vienna: "To Mrs. Henry Coleman --" that was supposed to be me.

Brad: You could return them.

Vienna: You know, I don't want them to be a part of my future, because it didn't happen.

Brad: Let me just take these gifts off your hands.

Vienna: You know what? You can just give it to the poor ones, because I don't need them. I don't need any dishes or crystals. I don't need no nothing!

Brad: So -- mission accomplished. I'll just -- I'm gonna take off and get some of these out of your way. So, if you need any help, give me a call.

Vienna: Brad --

Brad: Yeah, that's my name.

Vienna: I need something.

Brad: Happy to help.

Brad: Any other time --

Vienna: But what's wrong with right now?

Brad: Well, first of all, you drank most of Emma’s elderberry wine --

Vienna: She doesn't mind.

[Vienna hiccups]

Brad: And then you have the hiccups.

Vienna: Well, I -- you know, I have an excellent cure for that. See? No more hiccups.

[Vienna hiccups]

Brad: That's great. You're going to catch a cold.

Vienna: But don't you want me, Brad?

Brad: You have no idea how bad, but you're in no shape --

Vienna: But don't you think that -- oh, don't you think that we deserve some fun? Huh? After everything we've been through?

Brad: Fun is good --

Vienna: You know you want me. Every time we've tried to make love, someone has interrupted us -- over and over.

Brad: Yeah, I remember.

Vienna: Well, there's not going to be any interruptions here. Come on.

Vienna: You know what I love about you, Brad?

Brad: My handsome face, my foolish charm? My career in television?

Vienna: All of that. And you know what I love the most about you? You never left me. No matter what I said or did, you never left. You were always here.

Brad: Well, that's me. You can't kill me, can't drive me away.

Vienna: You won't leave me, will you? That's what I want -- a man who never leaves. You promise you won't leave me?

Brad: I think you need some oxygen.

Vienna: You're right. My head is spinning.

Brad: Time for bed.

Vienna: That's a brilliant idea. I can't wait to make love to you.

Vienna: Oh, don't you like me, Brad?

Brad: Much too much.

Vienna: Okay, so what's the problem?

Brad: You know, the problem is, is you don't want to do this. Not really.

Vienna: No, no, of course I do.

Brad: No, no. No, you don't. Now, Vienna -- just -- Vienna, go to sleep. No, no.

Vienna: Come on.

Brad: No.

Vienna: Why not?

Brad: No. I'm going to hate myself in the morning -- so much. Because the truth is, I don't want to sleep with you.

Parker: How do you get all the way down the aisle and not know that you don't want to marry someone?

Faith: Well, you know it happens all the time. Aunt Meg did it at her wedding. Paul was waiting for her at the altar, and then the next thing you know, she's walking out the door.

Jack: Okay, I don't think it's fair to compare the two, though.

Faith: Henry said that he didn't love Vienna enough to marry her. If Aunt Meg really loved Paul, she would've forgiven him and went through the ceremony.

Parker: Weddings are fake, anyway.

Jack: Parker, come on --

Parker: Everyone's pretending it will last forever, but it never does.

Jack: You shouldn't say never.

Parker: Who do you know that's still married?

Jack: Tom and Margo, Doctor and Mrs. Hughes --

Parker: All my friends' parents are divorced.

Faith: Mine aren’t.

Parker: Yet.

Jack: Okay -- hey! Hey, Holden and Lily, they've had their problems, just like anybody else, but they're fine. Didn't they just renew their vows? Yes. Which means they made a choice to work it out, because they love each other.

Parker: Love --

Jack: What, you're down on love now, too?

Parker: Not, it's not that. It's just -- it's not really worth the trouble.

Jack: Okay, I guess I can see where you're coming from. But listen, all I can tell you is how I feel. And sharing your life with somebody, there's nothing like it. You got to be honest, you got to be considerate. When there's a problem, the two of you have to talk it out.

Parker: Yeah, Henry was real considerate.

Faith: He was just being honest.

Parker: Yeah, honest just means that you hurt someone.

Jack: Okay, yes. But that brings up another point. You should be honest with yourself first, though. How do you feel? What do you want? And then, you talk to that other person, and you see if she's on the same page.

Parker: Jack?

Jack: Sorry, yeah. Are we just about done with these lunches? All right, I am going to go to the station, I'll drop these off on the way.

Parker: We didn't put the cookies in yet. I told you they were good.

Faith: I'm really sorry.

Jack: No, don't worry about it.

Parker: There's more.

Jack: There's more. Of course there are. Uh, guys, there are lunches for you in the fridge.

Parker: Thanks.

Jack: Yeah, and when Emma wakes up from her nap, can you tell her that I went to work?

Parker: Sure.

Jack: Bye, guys.

Parker: You hungry?

Faith: No.

Parker: You sure?

Faith: I'm fine.

Parker: So Meg ran out on Paul and Henry ran out on Vienna.

Faith: Yeah, I'm never getting married.

Parker: Me neither.

Gwen: Oh, I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

Will: That's okay.

Gwen: I don't want to interrupt.

Will: You're not interrupting. You actually couldn't tear me away from this book. It's fascinating.

Gwen: What's it about?

Will: Foreign financial policy.

Gwen: Sounds fascinating.

Will: It is. I was reading this part about this World Bank and then a very sexy foot slid up my leg.

Gwen: Oh. Well, the very sexy foot apologizes. Hey, you.

Will: It's kind of hard to read when you pull the book away from me.

Gwen: Yeah, that's the point.

Will: Are you trying to seduce me? Because it's working.

Gwen: Good.

Will: Yeah? Are you sure?

Gwen: Mm-hmm.

Jack: Yeah, call me if his credit card comes through. Coleman. C-o-l-e-m-a-n. Henry. Yeah, track any hits on his credit card, would you? No, nothing criminal. Just trying to find him. You might want to try the track. Thanks, bill.

Katie: Yes, yes, I'm still here. Okay, well, if Henry comes by the studio, will you please call me? Thank you.

Parker: You heard about the pep rally?

Faith: Only that it's happening. I heard some girls talking about it, saying it would be really fun.

Parker: You going?

Faith: I don't know. I've never been to one. Have you?

Parker: I went to the one last year. Everyone on the team goes.

Faith: So, you're going to go again this year?

Parker: Probably. We could go together if you want.

Faith: Really?

Parker: Yeah, sure. Why not?

Faith: Well, I -- you said it was the team goes.

Parker: Everybody goes. Doesn't mean you can't bring someone. I mean, unless you don't want to?

Faith: No, that would be great.

Parker: Cool. I'll call Brett. He was saying something about how we could all meet up al's before the rally. Grab something to eat.

Faith: Cool.

Maddie: Back so soon?

Henry: Yup.

Maddie: What happened? Did you talk to Vienna?

Henry: No.

Maddie: She'll be back soon enough.

Henry: She's back.

Maddie: What do you mean?

Henry: She's upstairs.

Maddie: Then why didn't you talk to her?

Henry: Because I decided that it was obvious that I made the right decision.

Maddie: Okay, but you do owe the woman some sort of explanation.

Henry: No, I don't think so. I don't think so. I think we both know this was the right thing to do.

Maddie: Leaving her at the altar?

Henry: Letting her get on with the rest of her life.

Vienna: What do you mean, you don't want to sleep with me? You've been trying for weeks.

Brad: Yes, I have. And here you are looking absolutely ravishing.

Vienna: Well, so ravish me.

Brad: Believe me, I would. But the truth is, I like you.

Vienna: You do?

Brad: Yeah, I do. You know, you're a hell of a woman, Vienna. And you know, you just got your heart stomped. And if we slept together, it might feel good. Of course it would feel good, this is me I'm talking about. But you know, you'd just hate me, you'd hate yourself, and it would be a big mess. And I think it would just be better if we, you know --

Vienna: Henry? Brad. Thank you.

Brad: You're welcome. Snyder, you are a saint.

Will: That was --

Gwen: Yeah.

Will: Very nice.

Gwen: Mm-hmm.

Will: I missed you.

Gwen: Me, too.

Will: I mean, I understood and everything, you know I did.

Gwen: I know.

Will: It's just --

Gwen: I know.

Will: You should remind me to thank Alison later.

Gwen: Don't you dare.

Will: What, I just want her to know that I appreciate the fact --

Gwen: No, no, I don't want you thinking about her, especially not while you're in bed next to me.

Will: Okay. So I won't think about her while I'm in bed next to you. I'll just think about her for the rest of the day.

Gwen: Don't smile at me, you two-timing husband.

Will: Those are fighting words --

Gwen: Stop! Stop! Stop! Stop.

Will: You know you're the only one for me.

Gwen: Yeah?

Will: You weren't really worried about Alison, were you?

Gwen: No. Not really.

Will: You know she's just a friend.

Gwen: Yeah, it's just --

Will: I know. Things have been really tough lately. But we're back and we're just going to keep getting better.

Cleo: And she bowls, she's -- it's okay. She'll pick up the spare. Set them up, boys.

[Cleo remembering]

Will: When you wake up in the morning you know I'm always going to be there. I'm never going to leave you.

Gwen: And what do I give you?

Will: You love me.

Gwen: How did I get to be so lucky?

Cleo: She's right. Gwen Munson, you're one lucky girl.

Announcer: On the next "As the World Turns" --

Lily: I have a way to get worldwide back from Craig. And it's foolproof.

Brad: I know about Katie, I know about you, okay? And more than that, I know what she thinks about it.

Margo: Since you really don't know what Jack is thinking, what about you? What do you want to have happen next?
