Chris: Phew!

Katie: You two were so great, once again. You make such a good team -- on air, of course. Just really good chemistry.

Alison: I -- I think that we just like what we're doing, so that comes across.

Chris: I mean, there's so much medical misinformation out there.

Alison: And some of it's on purpose.

Chris: Yeah, with ads designed to confuse us, right?

Alison: Oh, God, and the -- the celebrities on the talk shows who tell you that their astrologist doesn't believe in what the doctors are saying or the scientists.

Chris: Right, so it's great to get the information to the people, the facts -- real facts, right?

Alison: Yeah. Give them the confidence that they need to make, you know, the right decisions for themselves when it comes to their health.

Chris: Right, right, right, right, right.

Alison: What?

Katie: No chemistry whatsoever. It's sad.

Alison: She's -- she's wrong.

Chris: Totally, totally.

Alison: Yeah. No, you're -- you're gonna be fine on your own.

Chris: I'm sorry, "On my own"? Where are you going?

Alison: I got, uh -- I got a really big job offer. So I think I'm gonna be leaving town.

Vienna: You mean it?

Katie: Of course I do.

Vienna: Oh, my God, that's wonderful! You're such a good friend. And Henry -- he will be thrilled when he hears the news.

Katie: Well, let me know if he isnít.

Vienna: Not a chance. I'll talk to you later. Bye.

Henry: I'll be thrilled by what news?

Vienna: Katie -- she wants to throw us an engagement party.

Henry: What?! When?

Vienna: Tonight!

Henry: Tonight?!

Vienna: Isn't she the best?! Oh! Hi, Barbara.

Barbara: Vienna.

Vienna: Henry and I -- we would like to invite you to a party.

Barbara: Oh. You're having a party?

Vienna: Yes, our engagement party. Isn't it wonderful? Katie -- she wants to throw it for us tonight at metro.

Barbara: Sorry. Busy. Canít.

Vienna: Oh, come on. Please. You can change your plans. It wouldn't be a real celebration without you there.

Barbara: Oh, I doubt that.

Vienna: No, but you and Paul -- you're the only family Henry has left here in Oakdale. No, I know that he really wants you there, even if it's just for a little while.

Barbara: I -- I don't think so.

Vienna: Oh, we're not gonna take no for an answer. Right, Henry?

Henry: No! I mean yes. We are not gonna take no for an answer -- unless you really do have another commitment, and of course we understand that.

Barbara: Oh. Well, let me see what I can do. I wouldn't want to miss your celebration.

Vienna: Um, everybody's so happy for us.

Henry: Yeah.

Vienna: It's wonderful, isn't it?

Henry: Yeah, it's so wonderful. Sweetie, I don't know. It -- it might be a little premature.

Paul: Do you see that? I love when she does that.

Emily: She does it all the time.

Paul: Well --

Emily: Honey --

Paul: It just kind of kills me that she's gonna spend the night away. That's all.

Emily: She's going to the farm for one night.

Paul: It's been so long since she spent the night anywhere but here.

Emily: You know, Meg's out of Deerbrook for one night. She deserves to be with her daughter, right?

Paul: Yeah, well, I'm happy for both of them. But, you know, Eliza's a handful even for me, and I'm a completely normal person. But I do have you, right?

Emily: Oh, thank you. I'm gonna miss her, too, you know? But the upside is, you know, we'll have the whole house to ourselves.

Paul: Yes, we will. Why? What did you have in mind?

Emily: I think there are a few rooms we haven't tried out yet.

Paul: Are you propositioning me?

Emily: Yes, I am.

Paul: Good.

Emily: You in?

Paul: Absolutely.

Meg: You know, I can't believe they're letting me out of here, even if it is just for one night.

Emma: That's because you're getting well, 'cause you're getting healthier and stronger and all of that.

Meg: I can't wait to have Eliza all to myself.

Emma: Oh, Sweetheart, oh! We are so excited. Oh, the kids can't wait to visit us.

Meg: Mama, don't take this the wrong way, but I don't think I want to go to the farm.

Emma: What do you mean?

Meg: You know I love you and all the kids, and I miss you all so much. But I only have one night to spend outside, and I just want to feel like a normal person and not the guest of honor at a party.

Emma: Well, it won't be like that.

Meg: Look, I promise I will come to the farm next time, and you can invite the whole town to come over if you want.

Emma: I -- I really don't understand. If -- if you don't want to come to the farm, where do you want to go?

Emily: It's okay. Ooh, it's okay. We're gonna go night-night. I'm gonna see if I can put her down for a nap. I have a feeling she's not gonna get much sleep out at the farm.

Paul: Okay.

Emily: Say good night.

Paul: Good night.

Emily: Say good night.

[Cell phone rings]

Paul: Hello.

Meg: Paul, it's me.

Paul: Meg, are you already at the farm? I can bring Eliza over right now.

Meg: Actually, I'm, uh, calling because I have a favor to ask you. And -- and feel free to say no. But can Eliza and I spend the night at Fairwinds?

Paul: Um -- your mom's gonna be really disappointed, right?

Meg: I already told her, and she understands. Is there a problem? Is Emily gonna mind?

Paul: No, of course not. We're both very happy to have you.

Meg: You're sure it's okay?

Paul: Positive.

Meg: Okay, great. We'll be right over. I'll see you soon.

Emily: Please tell me that wasn't what I think it was. Uh, we didn't think this was going to work, right, Honey? How -- how could you say yes?

Paul: She just doesn't want to be around a big mob scene.

Emily: She should be around her family, Paul.

Paul: Well, she'll be around people. We're -- we're here. We're not going anywhere. We'll both be here.

Emily: Right, and I'm -- I'm sure she's thrilled about that.

Paul: She said that she wouldn't come if you had any objections.

Emily: Well, how can I have them? You just -- you just told her I was fine with it.

Paul: Well, if you want, I'll call her back and tell her that she can't come.

Emily: Great. That's a great idea. Great. Just give her even more reason to resent me.

Paul: Come on. I'll -- I'll make it up to you.

Emily: Really?

Paul: Yes.

Emily: You better, because Meg is the last person I want in our home right now.

Barbara: Hi. I hope I'm not interrupting.

Emily: Yeah. Spoke too soon.

Barbara: Could we speak in private?

Paul: No, I have no secrets from Emily.

Barbara: Well, I do.

Emily: I'm gonna go do some laundry.

Barbara: I'm sorry. It's just that what I need to talk to you about is rather personal.

Paul: Yeah. Okay, so what's the problem this time, legal, financial?

Barbara: Emotional. I need a little relationship advice.

Paul: You really have nowhere else to go?

Barbara: I just hope that you will have an open mind when you hear what I have to say.

Paul: How about an open bottle?

Barbara: That will work, too.

Vienna: I thought you wanted to marry me.

Henry: I do.

Vienna: Well, I'm sorry, but the way you've been acting lately, it makes me wonder.

Henry: No, I -- I just -- Sweetie, I don't -- I don't want to rush into things and just mess things up.

Vienna: Well, I just want to be your wife. I just want to know it's gonna be you and me sharing our love together forever.

Henry: I know. That's what I want, too!

Vienna: Why?

Henry: What?

Vienna: Tell me why you want to marry me.

Henry: What? There are so many reasons!

Vienna: Like?

Henry: Why do I want to marry you? Well, first of all, to make up for all the mistakes that I've made, all the times I've betrayed your trust, all the times I let you down.

Vienna: Yeah, you might not want to remind me of all of that.

Henry: Okay, well, you asked.

Vienna: Well, what about love?

Henry: Love?

Vienna: That's why you should want to marry me -- because you think I'm smart and -- and sexy, funny, and hot, and that you love everything about me!

Henry: I do!

Vienna: Well, then, that's what we're celebrating tonight, that I'm gonna be Mrs. Coleman and you're gonna be my Henry forever.

Chris: Look, Lutheran is a great hospital, but, I mean, you would actually leave Memorial? You'd move away from Oakdale?

Katie: Who's moving away?

Chris: Alison.

Alison: Maybe.

Katie: Why?

Alison: Um, well, the chance to be a nurse administrator -- that would be, you know, a really big jump for me. So I --

Katie: You can't leave, not now.

Alison: Why not?

Chris: Well, didn't my dad just give you a promotion?

Alison: Yes, he did. Um, but this would be an even bigger job with more responsibilities, more money.

Katie: But what about leaving your friends and your family?

Alison: Actually, I think it's, um, a perfect time for me to leave.

Katie: Why?

Alison: I mean, everyone has been so nice to me, especially your family. But I think we all know that I've kind of burned all my bridges here in Oakdale, and I'm -- I would really like the chance just to -- to start over somewhere new, you know, maybe do it right. So, um, I have to go though, so thank you. Bye, guys.

Chris: Yeah.

Alison: Yeah, bye.

Katie: You're just gonna let her walk away?

Chris: I can't stop her.

Katie: You don't even seem like you care.

Chris: You know I care. It's a big part of the reason why I came back to Oakdale. I thought maybe there was a chance that something would happen.

Katie: I think something is happening. I see it every time you two are together.

Chris: Well, I don't think Alison does.

Katie: Don't you?

Chris: Honestly, no.

Katie: But she's the reason you came back to Oakdale. You have the chance to be the reason she stays.

Chris: How am I gonna do that, Katie?

Katie: I'm throwing an engagement party for Henry and Vienna tonight. Why don't you bring her? Ask her to be your date.

Barbara: I don't think Lisa can be objective about this, and Kim is, like, off on her second honeymoon, and I don't want to bother her.

Paul: Oh, so you bother me.

Barbara: No. It's just that I think that you can help me.

Paul: Why's that?

Barbara: Because, Honey, you've had your share of relationships that are unconventional, like this one.

Emily: Why do I feel like I've just been insulted?

Paul: Okay, you know what? You want love advice. You call yourself a hotline.

Barbara: Paul, please.

Paul: No, really. Whatever it is you're going through, you can't dump this on me right now.

Barbara: Wow. Okay. I'm sorry to have bothered you. Excuse me.

Emily: Wow. What happened there?

Paul: I don't think I'm ever really gonna know.

Emily: Okay, um, I've thought long and hard about this Meg situation, and I'm gonna be very honest with you. I don't want her staying here tonight.

Paul: Too late.

Meg: Where's Eliza? I want to see my little girl.

Paul: She's sleeping.

Emily: I just put her down for her nap.

Emma: Emily, it was very nice of you to let Meg spend the night. Thank you.

Paul: Yeah. Isn't she the best?

Meg: Are you sure it's okay for me to stay here tonight?

Emily: Of course it is.

Emma: Sweetheart, why don't we just get Eliza and come on back to the farm?

Emily: Oh, no, no, no. Don't be silly. Meg, you're always welcome here.

Paul: Yeah, and it makes more sense for Eliza to stay in familiar surroundings, right?

Emily: Mm-hmm.

Paul: And -- and, uh --

Emily: The blue room is the closest to the nursery, so why don't I go make sure it's ready for you?

Meg: You know, maybe Mama's right.

Paul: Come on. You heard Emily. Everything's fine. It's great.

Meg: I really don't want to cause any trouble.

Paul: You're not causing any trouble. Come on. You can stay up all night with Eliza and play with her. Everything will be fine.

Emma: Paul, are you -- are you sure it's all right?

Meg: Mama is afraid that I might freak out again.

Emma: No I'm not! I mean, this is your first night out. I just don't want you to be overwhelmed.

Meg: I won't be. And if I am, which I'm sure I won't be, then Paul will be here to talk me down.

Emma: All right, all right. I'll -- I'll call you later.

Meg: I know you will.

Emma: Night night.

Meg: She doesn't trust me.

Paul: Maybe it's me she doesn't trust.

Meg: Maybe it's both of us. This is really okay with you?

Paul: Yeah.

Emily: Room's all ready if you want to get yourself settled. I think Eliza's awake.

Meg: I'm so excited to see her.

Paul: Come on. You all right?

Emily: Mm-hmm. Maybe you don't mind your crazy ex-wife down the hall from us and the baby. Why wouldn't I be?

Paul: Uh, I'm kind of thinking maybe I shouldn't believe you.

Emily: Yeah, you -- you would be right. But what can I do about it?

[Cell phone rings]

Paul: Katie? Hey. Um, what, tonight? Uh, I'm not sure. Let me -- let me talk to Emily about it.

Paul: Katie's throwing a party for Henry and Vienna tonight. You want to go?

Emily: Tonight? Uh, I don't -- I don't think tonight's a good idea.

Meg: I'll be fine. Go. I'm not gonna take Eliza and run.

Paul: No, I -- I don't think that's what Emily meant.

Meg: It is. It's okay. I don't blame you. Go, please. It will give me and Eliza a chance to bond.

Paul: Nanny will be here if you need anything.

Meg: We'll be fine. Don't worry.

Emily: Just tell her we'll be there.

Paul: Um, Katie, yeah, great. We're -- we're on our way. Thanks. We should get ready.

Emily: Mm-hmm.

Meg: Oh! I can't believe I have you all to myself. It's gonna be just like old times. Hey.

Barbara: Oh, stop. What's wrong with you? You're going to that party, and you're gonna say congratulations and good-bye, get on with your life.

Chris: You didn't answer my text.

Alison: Oh, I -- I thought it was from before the show.

Chris: No, it was after you left. Um, look, I was talking to Katie. She's having a party for Henry and Vienna, and I thought maybe you want to go?

Alison: Uh, well, I'm pretty busy. When is it?

Chris: Uh, well, the party will start when we get there.

Alison: Tonight?

Chris: Yes. If you had something else to do, you'd be doing it. Was it something on me or something? Makeup on my face?

Alison: No, no.

Chris: Okay, what?

Alison: You're fine. I'm -- I'm thinking that maybe I sent you some mixed signals.

Chris: No, your signals have been very clear.

Alison: Really?

Chris: Mm-hmm. You are not sure about me, given our history, and you think my family has issues with you because of Casey, so you want us to have our -- our distance. Are those the signals you're talking about, yeah?

Alison: Yeah, pretty much.

Chris: Yeah, well, guess what? I don't care about that. I just care about you.

Alison: You shouldnít.

Chris: Probably shouldnít. But I never got over you, okay?

Alison: Chris --

Chris: Look, it's not your problem. It's mine, all right?

Alison: Well, you -- you know you're making it my problem.

Chris: Well, I don't mean to. I just want to go to a party with you, eat a little bit, drink a little bit, do a little dancing, something like that. You wouldn't even have to talk to me. Don't even --

Alison: I'm not afraid to talk to you.

Chris: Then prove it.

Alison: Where is it?

Chris: Metro.

Alison: Fine. I'll meet you there.

Chris: Okay.

Vienna: It's so nice that you came.

Emily: Oh, we're -- we're thrilled for the both of you.

Paul: I guess this means you're gonna be our sister-in-law.

Vienna: Well, yes, I guess it does. But I'm looking forward to it. Excuse me a minute.

Emily: Ah. Can I get you a drink?

Paul: If you're buying.

Emily: Henry?

Henry: I'm -- I'm good.

Emily: Okay.

Paul: So, uh, this is it, huh?

Henry: Yeah, looks like it, yeah.

Paul: You know, if it's the right one, marriage can be great.

Henry: How do you know?

Paul: How do I -- how do I -- what do you mean?

Henry: If it's the right woman?

Paul: I thought you were sure about Vienna.

Katie: So you're here alone. I guess Alison said no.

Chris: No, she -- she said yes. She's gonna meet me here.

Katie: Oh, that's great! Perfect! Now that I have Henry and Vienna back together, you and Alison are my number-one priority.

Chris: Let me ask you something.

Katie: Hmm.

Chris: Why is it so important to you to hook me and Alison up together, hmm?

Katie: I just want all my friends happy.

Chris: What about you? Don't you want to be happy?

Katie: I am. I have my job and Jacob. What else do I need?

Emily: Katie, great party.

Katie: Thank you.

Emily: Hi. I heard you were back in town.

Chris: Yeah. Hey, how are you?

Katie: You two haven't seen each other?

Chris: Uh, not yet.

Katie: I'll let you chat.

Emily: Wow. So, how you been?

Chris: Good. You look great. Heard you, uh, got married.

Emily: Yeah, yeah. So, are you -- are you here with someone?

Chris: I am now.

Emily: Al -- Alison?

Alison: Sorry I'm late.

Chris: No problem.

Alison: Hey, Em. What?

Emily: Wow. Some people never learn.

Alison: I assume she means me.

Chris: I assume she means the both of us.

Katie: Can we serve the rest of the champagne? I want to make a toast.

Vienna: No, no, no, I don't think everybody's here yet.

Katie: Who's missing?

Vienna: Barbara.

Katie: Who? What? You invited Barbara?

Vienna: Yes. Henry and Barbara are practically family. Oh, here she is.

Barbara: Hi. Thank you.

Paul: You're drunk.

Barbara: I'm celebrating.

Katie: Hi. Everyone, can I get your attention, please? Uh, thank you. I would like to make a toast and thank everyone for being here to celebrate the engagement of Henry and Vienna.

Barbara: Ah! And I'm gonna make the first toast. As the -- senior -- yes, I am senior member of this assembly, I just want to wish all the happiest to my new best friend, the luscious Vienna and to my very, very, very, very, very good friend, Henry Coleman.

Henry: Thank you, Barbara. Thank you. That is, uh, wonderful --

Barbara: I'm not finished. I'd like to tell you all something my dear friend -- my dear, loyal, humble, honest friend, Henry Coleman. You ever think about how funny life is, how things can happen that you don't really expect, like romance? You know, it sneaks up on you. You don't even know its coming. And -- and maybe the guy is a guy you thought was a creep or a loser or someone just wrong for you. And -- pretty soon you're feeling something, and it's powerful, and you start to change and start over, and it doesn't really matter anymore that the guy is really, really, really wrong for you.

Vienna: What is she talking about?

Katie: I have no idea.

Barbara: So what do you do? Do you ask him if he loves you? And what if he doesn't? And worse yet, what if he does?

Katie: Okay! Uh, I think Barbara's right. Let's all say congratulations --

Barbara: I'm not finished yet.

Katie: Oh, yes, you are. You are very finished.

Paul: What was that all about?

Barbara: What the hell do you care?

Paul: That relationship talk that you wanted to have with me was about you and Henry?

Barbara: You know what? Leave me alone.

Paul: That is twisted. He is my brother. That's sick even for you.

Barbara: You have never understood me. You have never understood me at all! Just get out of my way.

Vienna: What got into her?

Henry: Uh, too much champagne I guess.

Katie: Yeah, I think Henry's right. She just had way, way too much champagne.

Henry: Too much. I'll be right back.

Paul: Are you out of your mind?

Henry: Where did she go?

Paul: She left. You're not going after her.

Henry: You let her leave? Did she drive here?

Paul: I don't know. How the hell would I know that?

Henry: What -- she is drunk, Paul? How could you -- if she gets behind the wheel of a car -- my God.

Emma: Where are Paul and Emily?

Meg: They went to a party.

Emma: They left you alone with the baby?

Meg: Mama, I would never do anything to harm Eliza. You know that.

Emma: Well, I know that. But it's your first night out. I mean, Honey, it's an awful lot for you.

Meg: Look, I'm not alone, okay? I have my little girl here, and the nanny -- she's somewhere around here. And Paul and Emily will be back soon. They won't be gone the entire night.

Emma: I just can't believe that they left. I really canít. I know that Emily seems a little uncomfortable with you staying here, but Paul should be more responsible.

Meg: Okay, Mama, stop! Paul has been nothing but accommodating, so don't you dare say anything. I need to get along with him or I will never see Eliza, and neither will you.

Emma: Well, getting along with him is one thing. Getting close to him is another. You know where that can lead.

Meg: He's married.

Emma: Yes, he is. And don't you forget it.

Emily: I think Henry's right. I think we need to find your mother and make sure she gets home okay.

Paul: She is not my problem, not anymore. Let's just get out of here.

Vienna: Katie, I can't find Henry. Did you see where he went?

Henry: Barbara --

Barbara: Go away.

Katie: Henry has to be around here somewhere.

Vienna: I've looked, and I can't find him.

Katie: Maybe the men's room.

Vienna: I suppose.

Mark: I haven't had a chance to congratulate you yet. I always thought you two were the perfect couple.

Vienna: Thank you, Mark. That is so sweet.

Mark: You're welcome.

Chris: Is it, uh, just me, or did this party empty out real quick?

Alison: It's me.

Chris: What do you mean?

Alison: Well, no one is better at clearing out a room than Alison Stewart.

Chris: Don't give yourself so much credit.

Alison: It's true.

Chris: All right, look, I know you think everyone blames you for what happened to Casey, okay?

Alison: Because everyone does.

Chris: Oh, I'm sure they forgot all about it.

Alison: Oh, I doubt it.

Chris: I hate to destroy your self-image here, but the whole town is not obsessed with Alison Stewart. Just me.

Alison: Chris --

Chris: As a friend. Strictly as a friend.

Barbara: I told you, leave me alone.

Henry: Uh, too bad. I'm not, uh -- I'm not going anywhere. You scared me to death leaving the party like that. I thought you were gonna get behind the wheel.

Barbara: I'm drunk. I'm not stupid. Why do you care anyway? You don't care anything about me.

Henry: Yes, I do.

Barbara: No, you don't! You're marrying her!

Henry: I know, but I -- I do. I still care about you.

Barbara: No, you donít. Why would you care about me? You're marrying the most beautiful woman in Oakdale. I have been such a fool.

Henry: That's not true. You have not.

Barbara: Okay, go away. Just go away. Just please go away.

Henry: You might want to --

Barbara: Let go of me.

Henry: No.

Barbara: Let go of me. Please, just let go of me! I'm not a fool, okay? You're making me look like a fool. I'm not a fool.

Henry: Okay, okay, okay, you're not a fool. You're not, you're not. You're not, okay? Just let me take you home, please.

Meg: There you go, Honey. Hey, you're back.

Paul: Everything okay?

Meg: Yeah, it was great. We had a great time. Right, Eliza? How was the party?

Paul: It was the same as any other party.

Meg: Well, I was, uh, taking Eliza upstairs, put her asleep.

Emily: Oh. Would you mind if I say good night?

Meg: Of course.

Emily: Good night, baby girl. I love you. Sweet dreams.

Paul: I told you it was all gonna be okay.

Emily: Yeah. You're the one who wanted to come home, not me.

[Cell phone rings]

Emily: Hello. Now? No, okay. I'll see you. Bye. I got to go. Uh, you remember the congressman, Silas Whitman, the one Molly Conlan exposed?

Paul: Literally.

Emily: Cute. Anyway, he's been released.

Paul: Didn't he try and kill Molly?

Emily: Yes, but apparently, something happened at the trial. I don't know any of the details, but I've been trying to get an interview with this guy for days, and he's ready to talk.

Paul: Now he's ready to talk?

Emily: Now. You know what? Maybe I shouldn't leave you alone.

Paul: What, you mean alone with Meg?

Emily: I don't trust her.

Paul: Yeah, well, how about me? You trust me?

Emily: Of course I trust you. Meg not so much.

Paul: She just wants to feel normal again.

Emily: Normal? Really? Normal for her or normal for everyone else?

Paul: She's all wrapped up in Eliza, and I'm all wrapped up in you, whether you're here or not.

Emily: Don't you think it's a little strange she wants to spend her one night of freedom here with us and not at home with her family?

Paul: Oh, come on. Can you blame her for wanting to get away from that family?

Emily: Okay, I -- okay. I wanted to get away from my family every once in a while. I'll give you that.

Paul: Maybe you could, you know, just give her a break.

Emily: Do I have a choice? Yeah. Okay. Be careful, okay? I got to go.

Meg: Well, Eliza fell asleep as soon as her little head hit the pillow. Are you going somewhere?

Emily: Yeah. Actually, I'm working on a story.

Meg: Good luck.

Emily: Thanks.

Meg: I heard what she said about not trusting me.

Paul: You weren't supposed to hear that.

Meg: You know, I really don't want to be a problem. Maybe I should have stayed at the farm.

Paul: You're not a problem. Look, as long as Eliza is living here, you can come here whenever you want.

Meg: You're being very nice to me.

Paul: You should take advantage of that.

Meg: Thank you. Well, I'm exhausted. I'm gonna go to bed.

Paul: Yeah, me too.

Meg: Aren't you gonna wait up for Emily?

Paul: Well, I mean, uh, no. I mean, uh, I'm not sure how long she's gonna be.

Meg: Right.

Paul: This is -- this is weird.

Meg: Yeah.

Paul: We're going back in time.

Meg: Well, we're not. Everything is different now, even me. I'm not who I was, and I'm not who I should be yet.

Paul: But you will be soon. You'll figure it out, and you'll be okay.

Meg: Thank you for saying that. It means a lot to me.

Barbara: Oh, that's too bright. That is too bright.

Henry: Uh, is that better.

Barbara: Not really. My head hurts.

Henry: You had a lot to drink.

Barbara: Uh-huh. I am -- I am sorry.

Henry: You don't have to apologize to me.

Barbara: No, no, no, not about getting drunk. I'm just sorry that I almost outted us to everybody. Thank God Katie stopped me, huh?

Henry: You, uh -- you let her stop you.

Barbara: I did, I did. I did the right thing.

Henry: Yes, you did.

Barbara: I did the right thing, didn't I?

Henry: Mm-hmm.

Barbara: I did. That might be a first, you know?

Henry: No, it would not.

Barbara: Oh, you don't know. I'm the world's leading expert on taking a bad situation and just making it absolutely worse.

Henry: Well, not this time.

Barbara: I must be losing my touch.

Henry: I'm glad you can laugh about it.

Barbara: That's me. I'm a real comedienne.

Henry: You all right?

Barbara: Mm. Yeah, I'll -- take something and drink a lot of water and I'll be fine.

Henry: Then I should go.

Barbara: You should go. You still here?

Henry: I know.

Barbara: Is something wrong?

Henry: Not with you.

Barbara: What are you doing?

Henry: I'm, uh -- I'm just giving you a kiss good night.

Barbara: Okay. Good night. No, no. Stop, stop, stop. Henry, stop. Just stop. You're engaged.

Henry: I know.

Barbara: You're engaged, so go. Just go.

Henry: No, no, no, no, no.

Barbara: Please, just go, go. Stop making a fool of me.

Henry: I am not making a fool of you.

Barbara: Please stop this. You go back to your fiancťe and stop it!

Henry: You don't mean that.

Barbara: I do mean it! I want you to leave me alone!

Henry: No, I canít.

Barbara: No, please, please!

Katie: What the hell are you doing?!

Paul: It's okay, Sweetheart. Just come in here with Daddy.

Meg: Hey, is she okay?

Paul: Yeah. She seems fine now. She was fussy before. When she gets like that, we usually just put her in the bed.

Meg: Do you want me to take her?

Paul: Oh, no, it's okay. I got her. You're tired, right?

Meg: I can sleep at Deerbrook. Here.

Paul: That would be great. I'm pretty beat myself.

Meg: Oh, come here, Sweetheart. Oh, come here. Should we take this and this? Let's let Daddy sleep, okay? All righty?

Barbara: How dare you barge in here?

Henry: Look, it's not what it looks like.

Katie: Then what is it?

Henry: We were just talking.

Katie: In each other's arms?

Barbara: I want you to leave.

Katie: You are threatening his happiness!

Barbara: I want you to get out of here! What are you doing here!

Katie: How could you just leave without telling everybody where you were going?

Henry: It was an emergency, Katie.

Katie: Oh, is that what you call it?

Henry: Yes, yeah, that's what I call it. She -- she'd been drinking a lot. I was scared she was gonna drive.

Katie: How is that your problem?! Your fiancťe went home alone having no idea where you were, which is probably a good thing. Let's go before she finds out.

Henry: Look, I will call you.

Katie: No, you won't!

Barbara: No, no, no, don't bother, don't bother. You won't answer! I won't answer! I'm done, Henry! Do you understand?! It's over! It's over! I'm done!

Katie: Are you out of your mind?

Henry: I can explain this.

Katie: No, you canít. Do you have any idea how sick this is?

Henry: Yes, I know! I -- I'm sorry. I can't help it.

Katie: Why not?

Henry: I -- I don't know! I -- I love Vienna. I love her. I want to marry her. I want to make her happy. I just -- I have these feelings for Barbara.

Katie: Forget the feelings. You're getting married to Vienna, not Barbara.

Henry: I know, I know. I just -- I don't know if I can give her up.

Katie: You have to. You have to stop this. Do you have any idea what this will do to Vienna if she finds out?

Henry: Yeah. It will destroy her.

Katie: Yes, it will, and she doesn't deserve that.

Henry: I know that!

Katie: You will stop this right now!

Vienna: Henry, what happened to you? Where did you find him?

Henry: Downstairs.

Katie: Right here. Right here in this hotel, downstairs.

Vienna: Why did you leave the party?

Henry: I had a headache.

Katie: He had a stomach ache.

Vienna: Why were you guys shouting right now?

Henry: When?

Vienna: Right now. I could hear you all the way out in the hallway. Were you arguing about me?

Katie: No!

Henry: Yes. I was asking Katie what I should get you for a wedding present.

Katie: Right, and I was angry with him because he didn't know what to get you.

Henry: Yeah, so technically we were shouting.

Katie: And it was about you.

Henry: But we weren't arguing.

Katie: Not about you.

Vienna: The two of you spend way too much time together.

Katie: Well, you're right, so I'm gonna leave you two alone.

Vienna: Bye, Katie. It was a wonderful party. Thank you.

Katie: Well, I just wanted to celebrate how special you two are together. I'll talk to you soon.

Henry: I need to take an antacid. This stomachache --

Vienna: Wait, I thought it was a headache.

Henry: Yeah, yeah. It's a little bit of both.

Chris: Gosh, did you ever think that we'd be sitting here, doing this again?

Alison: Eating hors d'oeuvres?

Chris: No, just hanging out and laughing.

Alison: Not really.

Chris: So, what do you think it means?

Alison: We're hungry.

Chris: No. I -- I mean the fact that we can sit here and just enjoy each other's company.

Alison: I think it means that we enjoy each other's company.

Chris: Or don't you think it means we changed, I mean in a good way, that we moved on from a messy past and we can be friends?

Alison: Is that what we are?

Chris: Is that what you want to be?

Alison: I have to admit it, it does feel good, at least for now.

Chris: Okay. So you're serious about that job in Chicago?

Alison: Yeah, I'm thinking about it. Do you want the last cheese puff?

Chris: Uh, yeah.

Alison: Really?

Chris: Oh, I mean, unless -- unless you want it.

Alison: No, no. You can have it. That's what friends are for.

On the next "As the World Turns."

Holden: She doesn't resent you.

Lily: Yes, she does. She thinks that she'd be better off without me. And that's why I have to let her go.

Molly: Silas?

Silas: Hello, beautiful.

Luke: You call Noah by his first name.

Reid: He's my patient.

Luke: So?

Reid: It's a simple, well-defined relationship. It's patient/doctor. It's clear.

Luke: So what does that make us then?

Emily: Sleep well, Paul?
