Vienna sends Henry to call Katie and tell her they are running late. Alison doesn’t think its fair for Vienna to be with Casey one minute and then dump him to get back together with Henry. Vienna clarifies to Alison that she and Henry never broke up and Aliso thinks its even more appalling for Vienna to use Casey and then dump him. Vienna thanks Alison for not telling Henry that she saw her with Casey and reminds her that she dumped Casey on their wedding day so she should mind her own business. Henry calls Barbara to find out if she has gotten her test results back and Barbara tells him that she hasn’t heard anything yet.
