Vienna finds Mike in the dining room on the ship. She explains that she was
getting a massage, but it made her seassick. She acts very friendly towards him.
He is suspicious and tries turning down a drink when she insists on getting him
one. When the waiter comes, Vienna is surprised that she doesn't need to pay in
cash--everything is on account. Mike tells the waiter to put it on his tab.
Vienna grabs Mike's hands to flirt with him, but he takes her hand off and tells
her that he is married to Katie. She doesn't miss a beat to observe that Mike
and Katie are both "hot", and that she and her boyfriend are both "hot", too, so
they should all be BFF (Best Friends Forever). Mike smiles awkwardly at this
proclamation. She points out that they have a lot in common. Mike laughs at her
idea that they be best friends. She asks him about himself, so he tells her that
he runs a construction business. They chat about that, and then he asks her to
be nice to Katie by keeping the noise down and letting her have breakfast. She
thinks he's sweet and hopes his wife is half as good to him as she is to her.
Mike says Katie's an all or nothing kind of girl. Mike thinks Vienna is just
coming on to him because she knows he has a wife, but she says she just wants to
not have bad vibes across the hall. She suggests that all four of them get
together. She mentions her boyfriend as "Aussie-boy", so Mike asks his name, but
she is kind of annoyed with Simon right now, so she says his name is "mud". Mike
observes that she is just trying to distract herself from her boyfriend. Mike is
put off by her attitude, but she asks him to stay for one drink. He has trouble
figuring her out because she's a little weird. She makes it clear that she wants
to play nice for her boyfriend's sake, so Mike relents. vienna asks the waiter
to add two more to his dinner reservation, but she's told they are full. Mike
jokingly acts disappointed. She warns that he's not rid of her yet, but he
leaves to go spend time with Katie. Vienna can't believe that he wants to do
Meanwhile, Simon is giving Katie a massage. She still doesn't know it's him, since she's lying face down. Katie chatters on about her rude neighbors and then talks about Mike. Simon is annoyed to discover that they are on their honeymoon. Katie wonders why the masseur has stopped, so he goes back to rubbing her back. Katie makes jokes about Vienna, so Simon laughs. She wonders why he isn't talking, but then figures it's part of his job that he shouldn't talk. Simon is in a bind, not knowing how to talk so she won't recognize him. Finally, he puts on a funny French accent. She mentions that she couldn't believe that Mike slept through all the noise the previous night. He asks if she was angry at her husband about that. She says no, she wasn't angry and that she loves Mike. She says the old adage "Third times a charm" is correct. He is surprised that she's been married three times, but when she mentions that Henry was the second husband, Simon practically chokes on the news. He asks about her first husband, but she says she doesn't ever talk about him. She tells him that he has a nice touch. He asks how her first husband was, so she says that her first husband was all wrong for her--dangerous and exciting, which she enjoyed. She writes him off as "first love". Simon gets annoyed and smacks her foot but then covers. Katie admits that even though Simon was a scoundrel, she wasn't much better. She says he was gorgeous and brave, and she was crazy about him, but adds how much he hurt her. She gets embarrassed and says she should just shut up. Simon uses his real voice to say that she could say that the man never meant to hurt her and he was crazy about her, too. She sits up quickly, covering herself with a towel, realizing who it is. She's stunned. Simon tells her that her massage is over and asks what her plans are the rest of the day. Katie is annoyed and asks what he's doing there. He tells her that he's on vacation. She is very angry and asks how he happens to be there, so he explains. She can't believe he posed as her masseuse. He asks her to tell him about being married to Henry, but she tells him it's none of his business and orders him out. He tries to calm her down, but she insists on getting the ship's security. He tells her to keep her shirt on. She retorts that she doesn't have her shirt on and that he totally took advantage. As she goes to open the door, he closes it and kisses her. After a couple of seconds, she pushes him away and smacks him. He goes to get another kiss, so she pushes him away again. She yells at him that she's happily married. He knows she's married to "construction Mike" and asks if she's sure that he's really "the best". Katie doesn't know what to say to him and keeps yelling at him. Simon tries to get her to admit that she felt the kiss, but she denies it. He says that she must really be over him, so she tells him with certainty that she is. He suggests that they all get together as he goes to pick up the phone and call Mike. She stops him frantically, grabbing the phone out of his hand. Simon wonders what the problem is and why she doesn't want them all to get together, since she is over him. Katie reminds him about the past with Pilar etc. He tries to apologize, but she tells him that it's way too late. Katie tells him that she and Mike are fine, and she doesn't want him dredging up old memories of the past for Mike. She tells him that he should just get off the boat. They argue some more until Mike knocks, asking Katie if she's decent. Katie looks panicked. Simon smiles.

Holden questions Damian about his involvement with Ross Krieger and his plot to kidnap Luke (and make him less gay). Damian again denies that he hired Ross.
In her hosptial room, Lily grabs LUke's hand, whispering, "I'm sorry". Then the monitor starts beeping and she has some sort of attack or seizure. A doctor rushes in, and so does Holden and Damian. Luke is upset but explains that she just grabbed his hand. Bob comes in, too, to help examine her. Bob asks Holden if Lily has ever had a seizure before. He answers that she hasn't, as far as he knows. The doctors prepare Lily to take her for some tests. Outside the room, Holden grills Luke about what happened and then yells at him for not getting him when Lily woke up. Damian intervenes, telling him to leave Luke alone and that it wasn't his fault. Holden says he didn't mean that; he's just trying to understand. Bob tells Holden he will call him when he has the test results. Holden tells Lily that they are here as they wheel her out. Later, Holden, Damian and Luke arrive at the hospital because Bob phoned them. Holden tells Damian that this is a family conference and they'll let him know later, but Damian insists on waiting outside to hear about Lily's condition. Bob has HOlden and Luke take their seats. He tells them that there was no bleeding in the brain, but Lily is still unconscious and seems to be back in her coma. Holden asks what a coma could mean for the baby. Bob tells him that the baby is fine; however, the longer that Lily is in the coma, the more of a problem there will be for her and the baby. Bob quizzes Luke about when Lily tried to talk to him. Bob explains that Lily's brain may have short-circuited because of the head trauma. All they can do is wait. This news doesn't sit well with Holden, who argues that there must be something they can do. Bob says that all they can do is talk to her. Holden is disappointed that there is nothing else they can do. Luke blames himself for what happened to Lily, but Holden assures him that Lily loves him. Holden worries that Lily's seeing Luke might set her off again (which is not at all what Dr. Bob said!). Luke agrees to stay way from her for now and also says he will call the girls. Holden thanks him and goes in to see Lily. Damian comes over and offers his sympthy to Luke. Luke wonders what Lily was trying to say to him, since she had already apologized to him for the Ross guy. He asks Damian if he knows of anything that Lily would be desperate to tell him. Damian just theorizes what it could be, not telling him the truth. Luke asks to stay with him again, so Damian assures him that he's always welcome. He gets Luke to go with him for breakfast.
