Vienna suggests they hire someone to run the bar while Carly is gone so that he can go back to the Diner and be with her. Henry admits to Vienna that they now own part of Metro. Vienna is angry that Henry bought part of a club she didn’t want to own and kept it a secret from her. Henry tells Vienna that he only bought the club because he wants to give her the glamorous life she had when they met each other. Vienna tells Henry that she loves the simple life they have now and wouldn’t give it up for anything in the world.
