Henry and Simon wake up on the couch at Katie's house, where they fall asleep watching "The Twilight Zone."  Simon goes to work at the diner and Henry accompanies Katie to WOAK so she can tape a test reel for a new show about motherhood.  Later, Henry watched Jacob while Katie has dinner with Simon at the diner.

Today’s episode was directed by Michael Eilbaum and written by Janet Iacobuzzio.

Katie: Oh. This is gonna be good. [Clears throat]

Henry: What are you doing?

Simon: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!

Katie: Good morning.

Simon: Yeah. Morning.


Simon: Don't worry, boss man. I'm not gonna be late for my shift.

Katie: Oh, he can't be mad at you being late. He was the one you were sleeping with.

Simon: Will you relax about that?

Henry: Come on, please.

Katie: Oh, you guys were so cute all cuddled up on the couch. Weren't they so cute?

Simon: It's only 'cause I'm so exhausted from my new gig.

Katie: Yeah. You have been working him.

Henry: He's not used to an honest living. That's what the problem is.

Katie: That's not true.

Simon: That's harsh.

Katie: Simon did not have a problem getting his hands dirty at old Burt's garage. Remember that?

Simon: That garage had a lot of good memories. Though, I must say, waiting tables is far less backbreaking.

Katie: It's nice seeing you this way.

Simon: It's nice being this way. So, listen, how about I take you to dinner tonight?

Henry: That's a great idea!

Simon: Not you, lover boy.

Henry: I know that.

Simon: Come on. My treat, just to show you my appreciation for everything you've done for me.

Katie: Okay.

Simon: Yeah?

Katie: Yeah.

Simon: Okay, great. I'll see you tonight. Not you, her.

Katie: What are you looking at? You heard him. He just wants to thank me.

Henry: It's more than just thanking you and it's more than just dinner, and the both of you know that.

Katie: You're nuts.

Henry: That may be true, but I'm also right.


Henry: I saw the looks between you and Simon, and you plus Simon equals what?

Katie: He doesn't even know what he's doing with his life. I'm a new mother and a widow.

Henry: I know, I know, but I saw the looks between you two.

Katie: What looks?

Henry: You know what I'm talking --

Katie: Oh, my -- why are you doing this, Henry?

Henry: Because I want you to be happy.

Katie: Oh, really? And getting back together with my ex who broke my heart several times just a few short months after burying my husband 60 years too soon, that'll make me happy?

Henry: Yeah. Wouldn't it?

Katie: No. The last thing I need right now is a new love.

Henry: Well, then Simon is the perfect choice, because he isn't really new, is he?

Katie: Just finish feeding my baby so I can change him and we can get to the studio.

Henry: And why are you going there?

Katie: I am pitching a new show idea to Kim.

Henry: Now?

Katie: Yes, now.

Henry: I thought you wanted to spend some time at home with Jacob.

Katie: My idea is for mothers, and since I am one, it works for me.

Henry: Five days a week?

Katie: Weekly, with a heavy online component, so mothers can tap in to it 24/7 so they know they're not alone.

Henry: You know you're not alone, right?

Katie: I have you sleeping on the couch with my ex and feeding my baby. I'm never alone.

Henry: I'm not kidding around, okay?

Katie: Okay.

Henry: You're not alone, and Simon -- Simon settled in here. He's not going anywhere, and I think you should be open to that. You should be open to him. Isn't that right, Jacob? Yeah. Yeah.


Henry: What exactly are you planning to do?

Katie: I just want to tape a segment, kind of a test reel to show Kim.

Henry: Oh, okay. You want me to get a cameraman for you?

Katie: No. You can do it, can't you?

Henry: Yeah, I can do it. Sure.

Katie: This is where I met your daddy, so I want you sitting right next to me now, because he was sitting right next to me then. Okay?

Henry: Do you need a minute?

Katie: No, I'm okay. Are you rolling it?

Henry: Yeah.

Katie: Okay.

Henry: Whenever you're ready. Okay. In five, four, three, two --

Katie: Hi, I'm Katie, and I'm a mom.


Katie: So, I know what it's like to feel like you're the first mom ever born who can't hack it. You convince yourself that you're never gonna make it, or if by some odd chance you do, your baby won't, but you're wrong, because you pick up your baby and you put that sweet little face next to yours, and you know that you would never give up on him any more than he would ever give up on you.

[Baby fusses]

Katie: Right on cue. Excuse me. It's okay. It's okay. It's okay. And, also, when you need help, ask for it. Henry, I think he needs you.

Henry: Huh?

Katie: Yeah.

Henry: All right.

Katie: It's okay. You know what he needs.

Henry: Yippee ti yi yo, get along little dogies. It's your misfortune and none of my own. Yippee ti yi yo, get along little dogies. For you know that Wyoming will soon be your home.

Katie: I'm so lucky to have you. I couldn't have done this without you, Henry.

Henry: I couldn't have done this without you, either.

Simon: This won't even buy appetizers for two at metro tonight. Being poor sucks. Ah, yes, hi. I called earlier about a dinner reservation tonight. I'm gonna have to cancel that. Frasier. It was a table for two. I have no idea when I can reschedule. I don't know. Yeah, trust me, I'm sorry, too.

Henry: I'll -- I will cut out the cowboy stuff and burn a copy for Kim. You sounded great.

Katie: No, no, no. Don't cut it out. I want it in there, all of it. Thank you so much for everything you've done for us. I feel so lucky to have you by my side.

Henry: You have no idea what that means to me.

Katie: It's true.

Henry: After everything that happened --

Katie: I know. I thought I would never talk to you again.

Henry: I didn't think you'd ever talk to me again either. We are lucky, like you said.

[Cellphone ringing]

Katie: Oh, it's Simon.

Henry: Yeah. Go, go, go, go.

Katie: Hey, you. Oh, I'm at the studio with Henry and Jacob. What are you doing?

Simon: I'm at work, which is where I'd like you to come meet me if you can.

Katie: Everything okay?

Simon: Yeah, yeah.

Katie: What's this about?

Simon: It's about dinner. Can we do this in person?

Katie: Hold on a second. Simon wants to meet me. Can you watch Jacob?

Henry: Yeah, sure. No trouble.

Katie: Okay. I will be right there.


Henry: You see, Jacob, mama's happy. When mama's happy, we're happy, right?
