Henry: What is this? I didn't do this. Hey! Hey, somebody help!

Vienna: Oh, Henry.

Henry: You? No, no, no, no, no. You didn't do this.

Vienna: I am so, so glad that you are awake, Darling.

Henry: Maybe I'm not. Maybe this is just a nightmare.

Vienna: Shh. Don't fight it. Just lean back and relax and enjoy yourself, while I'll take care of all the hard things.

Henry: Pepparkakor!

Vienna: What?

Henry: That's our safety word. Remember? And I'm not feeling very safe right now, so Pepparkakor! Would you just get the key and undo these, please?

Vienna: But the key's all the way over there.

Henry: So?

Vienna: Oh, Henry, Henry, Henry. You can hide, but you can't run.


Henry: I'm, uh -- I'm losing the circulation in my wrists, Sweetheart. You want to undo these before we get some permanent damage?

Vienna: Oh, wait. We haven't had this much fun in a long time.

Henry: Oh, my God! Oh, my God!

Vienna: There's no need to struggle, 'cause you're not going anywhere, you naughty, naughty boy.

Henry: Naughty. That's right. This is wrong. This is wrong. We decided -- we decided that we were not gonna have sex again until after marriage.

Vienna: No. You decided that. I didn't agree on that. I would never agree on something like that. That's un-Swedish.

Henry: When in Illinois.

Vienna: Shh!

Henry: But Liebchen.

Vienna: No. Stop talking. I want you, Henry, and I know you want me, too.

Henry: Not like this.

Vienna: Oh, your word says no, but your body says, "Ravish me!"

Henry: Really? Would you really take me against my will?

Vienna: Oh, you just leave your will for me.


Vienna: Are you ready?

Henry: Yes. No, no. We can't do this without protection.

[Knock on door]

Vienna: Ignore it. Really.

Henry: No. It could be house cleaning. They may walk in on us. Who is it?

Barbara: It's Barbara. I have the sketch of Vienna’s wedding gown and some fabric samples for her to check over.

Vienna: Oh, I'll be right there! Can't wait to see what you've done!

Henry: Vienna, no! You can't let her -- let her in here! No! At least let me go, please!

Vienna: Since when did you become so shy, huh? Hello, Barbara. I can't wait to see what you've done. May I?

Henry: Hello, Barbara.


Vienna: Is this beading?

Barbara: Yes. It's all beading, or you could have it without, if you prefer.

Vienna: Oh, with, absolutely. It is exquisite. You remember the thing I told you about.

Barbara: Yes. If by the time the wedding happens you need it, I can put panels over.

Vienna: Oh, yeah, yeah. I got it. I understand. Great idea. I want it to be a surprise. Can you just hide the sketches so Henry doesn't see them?

Barbara: Of course, of course. I also brought some fabric samples for you to look at. This one is quite expensive.

Vienna: Money's not a problem, is it, Henry?

Barbara: I think you should have whatever you want.

Vienna: Oh, God. I love being a bride! I'm gonna take this to the bathroom, where the light is much better. You just wait right here.

Barbara: No, no, no, no. I can’t.

Vienna: Oh, come on. Keep Henry company.

Henry: What?! Vienna, no! You can't leave me in this condition!

Vienna: When did you become such a prude? I'm sure Barbara has seen plenty of scandalous things in her time. Wait for me.

Barbara: I'm leaving.

Henry: Barbara, no! No! Please, don't go! You've got to get me out of this. Please!


Henry: Barbara. Barbara, please. I am not Houdini. Would you please get me out of these?

Barbara: If you haven't noticed, I'm not Houdini, either!

Henry: Look, the key is on the table! I'm begging you! I'm begging you, please! If you leave me here, I am at Vienna’s mercy, and she doesn't have any!

Barbara: Fine.

Henry: Hurry! Hurry! Look, I didn't sign on to this. Vienna did this to me when I was sleeping. It was the only way that she could get me to --

Barbara: Stop! Spare me the details!

Henry: I tried to use our safe word, but that didn't stop her at all!

Barbara: Shut up, Henry! Shut up, or I'll tell you, you know what I'm gonna do? I'm gonna lock you back up with these, and I'll swallow the key!

Henry: Do you really hate me that much?

Vienna: I love them all! I really, really can't decide! I never realized how many different shades of white there is. And the way these fabrics move! Oh, I'm gonna be a princess on my wedding day!

Barbara: Yes. Just hold on to them for a little while, all right?

Vienna: Oh, my God! This is absolutely perfect. You're a genius! It's as if you're inside my head listening to every single thought I have. You're so attuned with everything that I love.

Barbara: Yes, everything for the bride. Just remember, the silk needs some special ordering.

Vienna: Oh, Barbara.

Barbara: Yes? Ooh!

Vienna: Thank you.


Vienna: Oh, Henry, my dress is going to be the most beautiful thing on this earth. I mean, Barbara, she may be old, but her fashion sense is just impeccable! I mean, she's more like a witch than a designer. Her dress is -- oh, it's gonna be beautiful. I can't wait for you to see it on me. Hang on a minute. What happened? How did you get out of the handcuffs?

Henry: The handcuffs?

Vienna: Oh, you have so many talents. You're an escape artist, too. Mr. Henry Houdini. And you're all red.

Henry: Yeah, imagine that.

Vienna: I know what to do to make you feel better. Let me tie you back up again.

Henry: I'm not in the mood, Vienna.

Vienna: Oh, come on! You're always in the mood. At least you used to be. Fine, fine. Let's switch places. Officer, cuff me.

Henry: Stop it.

Vienna: Oh, come on! You be the cop, and I'll be the very bad girl. You can do anything to punish me.

Henry: No, Vienna, stop it! I mean it!

Vienna: What's wrong with you? When did it become such a chore for you to make love to me?

Henry: We had a deal -- no sex until after marriage.

Vienna: No! I never agreed to that. That's a terrible idea.

Henry: Well, it's tradition.

Vienna: And when did you start to care about tradition?

Henry: Since you went and decided to get pregnant without even telling me.


Barbara: No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. You are not gonna fall apart, not over the likes of Henry Coleman! He's just a man, and you can have any man, Barbara. You can have any man you want. If I want a man, I can have a man, a man that's far more appropriate than Henry that I don't have to share. Ha. Katie? Hi. It's Barbara. Are you free? Oh, good. I was just thinking about your new matchmaking skills, and I thought, "Well, gee, I've got a bit of time on my hands," so if the offer is still open, I'm in.
