Mandy: Is that coffee hot enough for you? Henry?
Mandy: Can I heat that up for you?
Henry: No, no. It's hot enough already. [Henry sighs] Stop it, stop it, stop it!
Katie: Henry? Are you okay? Who were you talking to?
Henry: Can you get Katie's catering order, Mandy? It's under the name Hughes.
Mandy: Sure thing.
Katie: So, what was that about?
Katie: Stop it, stop it, stop it, stop it!
Henry: Oh, oh. I was reminding myself not to drink hot coffee too fast, otherwise I'd burn my tongue.
Katie: You sure you weren't seeing Brad again?
Henry: Word of honor.
Henry: Is that why you're so glum? Are you thinking about Brad?
Katie: Yeah. It's just this anniversary stuff, you know. I mean, I'm happy for Bob and Kim, but I can't stop thinking about Brad and how we barely had one anniversary.
Henry: Yeah. You packed in a lot of happiness in the short time that you had.
Katie: Yeah. Yeah, we did.
Henry: Oh, yeah.
Katie: Okay. Well, let's pack in some more happiness, then.
Henry: What did you have in mind?
Katie: Why don't you come to this party? Be my date.
Henry: A Hughes anniversary party? No, no, no, thank you. I don't want to horn in on some family affair.
Katie: It's not all family.
Henry: Oh, really? Who's gonna be there?
Katie: Well, Tom, Margo, Chris, Nancy --
Henry: No, no, no, no.
Katie: Barbara, Reid.
Henry: No. Yes, yes.
Henry: Yes. You've convinced me. I'll go with you.
Katie: You will?
Henry: It's the least I could do.
Tom: Hey, you're just in time. Dad and Kim are probably on their way down here already.
Barbara: Don't you have any cocktail napkins?
Margo: Yes, I do, I do, but I was in such a hurry coming from the car, I left them outside.
Barbara: I'll get them.
Katie: Are Bob and Kim here yet?
Barbara: Oh, no. Not quite yet. I didn't know you were going to be here.
Katie: Let's get inside.
Henry: I'm right behind you.
Barbara: I'm glad to see you. Where's Vienna?
Henry: Not here.
Katie: You coming?
Henry: Yes, yes. I'm helping Barbara with her bag. Where does this go?
Barbara: I'm gonna go find her.
Margo: Do you think she went home?
Bob: I doubt that.
Barbara: Well, she has a key to my suite. Maybe she's there.
Henry: Why don't I drive you over there?
Katie: Barbara can take care of it herself.
Barbara: I will find her. I'll get her back here.
Katie: I invited Alison because I knew Chris wanted her here, even though he was pretending it was for Casey. I guess Casey's just still so mad at her, though, that he scared her away.
Henry: Yeah. It was really nice of you to do that. When do you think Barbara's gonna get back?
Katie: Barbara? Who cares? You mean Kim, right?
Henry: Yes. I mean -- I mean Kim. Kim. Do you think she's gonna show?
Katie: I wish I knew.
Margo: Well, we found the minister, and, unfortunately, he's in jail.
Chris: On what charge?
Tom: That's where it all gets a little dicey.
Margo: It's fraud. He's a con artist who rips people off by pretending he's a man of the cloth.
Bob: You mean he's never been ordained and he can't legally perform marriages?
Tom: I'm afraid not, Dad.
Chris: Hey, wait a minute. What does that make me?
Reid: I always knew you were a bastard. I just didn't know it was official.
Henry: That's not funny.
Reid: All right, well, listen. Thank you all for the food and the memorable afternoon. Sorry it didn't work out as planned.
