Alison: Hi, Vienna.

Vienna: Hi.

Alison: Are you here with Henry?

Vienna: Of course.

Alison: You guys are back together?

Vienna: I've always been with Henry.

Alison: Well, the other day, I saw you with Casey.

Vienna: You know what? We're gonna go over to WOAK and watch Lisa's show there since it got rescheduled.

Henry: Hi, Alison.

Vienna: Yeah, I was just asking Alison if she was gonna see Lisa's show.

Alison: Well, I knew that I was gonna have to miss it, so actually the director's gonna send me a tape.

Henry: Why?

Alison: I'm sworn to secrecy.

Henry: Uh-huh.

Vienna: They're making fresh coffee, but we can leave if you want to.

Henry: Uh, no, take your time. I changed my mind. Could you get me a cup of coffee to go?

Vienna: Of course.

Henry: Okay. And you know what? I'm gonna call Katie and tell her that we're running late.

Vienna: Okay. Thank you for not bringing up Casey in front of Henry. Things are delicate.

Alison: Look, Vienna. Casey's a great guy, and you can't just dump him and go back to Henry like he doesn't even matter.

Vienna: That's what you did. Dump Casey at the altar. Alison, just stay out of this, please.

Barbara: I'm in a rush, Henry.

Henry: Lisa Grimaldi, live and in person. Yeah, I know. I also know that today is your big day.

Barbara: You remembered.

Henry: Sure. When will you get the test results from the doctor?

Barbara: Soon, I hope.

Henry: Well, if you want to talk about it --

Barbara: You know, I'm okay. I really am. And, you know, Lisa's gonna start singing soon, so I've got to go.

Vienna: I thought I'd lost you there for a second. Is everything okay?

Henry: It's going to be. I know it will. Thanks.


Henry: Hey, what are you doing here? I just saw you at Lisa's show.

Barbara: I, uh, I had an errand to run for Kim. I need to get some papers.

Henry: Barbara.

Barbara: Okay, I'm lying. I'm lying. I was hoping that you were gonna be here. Just hearing your voice earlier just helped me.

Henry: The scans are gonna come back clear. You will be cancer-free. You've got to believe that.

Barbara: What if I'm not?

Henry: There's no point of even going there.

Barbara: What if I'm not? I just keep thinking about all the lost time, you know? All the days that I did nothing, and all the weeks that I worried about nothing, and all the time that I've ignored my children, and all the time that I could have repaired my marriage to Hal, and I didn't or I wouldn't.

Henry: Please. Please don't do this to yourself.

Barbara: And then I keep thinking about the days with you, and they keep running over and over and over in my head. And I don't know if it's because they were after the cancer, but I was completely alive those days, Henry. I was completely here. I want more of that. And -- and don't get nervous, okay? I don't mean I want -- I want more of you, although -- although -- I just want more time.

[Classical music playing]

Henry: Dance with me.

Barbara: Why?

Henry: Why not? We're the champs, right?


[Cellphone ringing]

Henry: Is it the doctor?

Barbara: Uh-huh.

Henry: It's okay. Whatever it is, I'm here.

Barbara: Hello. Yes, it's ms. Ryan. Yes. It's the nurse. She wants me to hold for the doctor. It's got to be bad news, otherwise she would have told me herself. Yes, yes, dr. Hearn. Yes, I understand. Thank you.

Henry: Find another doctor. We're gonna find a better doctor -- a doctor who knows what the hell he's talking about. We're -- we're gonna go get a third and a fourth and a fifth opinion.

Barbara: Cancer-free.

Henry: Say that again?

Barbara: I'm cancer-free. He said that we can take another scan in a year, but just to make sure that everybody's okay.

Henry: You're okay?

Barbara: I'm okay.

Henry: Oh, my god. Oh, my god!


Barbara: I am sorry. I -- I shouldn't have done that.

Henry: It's okay, it's okay. We were both excited by the news.

Barbara: Yes.

Henry: The world is a much better place with Barbara Ryan in it.

Barbara: Thank you for that. Thank you for the dance. Thank you for being here with me.

Henry: I should, uh -- I should go back to the studio. Vienna's here.

Barbara: Oh, oh, I didn't realize.

Henry: Yeah, so, um, I should probably find her.

Barbara: Uh, yeah, you should. You saw us.


Vienna: Yes, I saw you kiss my Henry. I mean, how could you?! You're making my wedding dress! I mean, you more than anyone knows how much we -- we love each other! And then you throw yourself at my fiancé?

Barbara: I -- I lost my head for a moment, that's all.

Vienna: No, no, no, why, why?

Barbara: Why?

Vienna: Why, yeah. I mean, what did you think would happen, that -- you would kiss him and immediately he would just forget all about me and he -- he would make passionate love to you?

Barbara: Well --

Vienna: No, because that would never, ever happen.

Barbara: Look, I've already apologized to Henry, and now I'm apologizing to you, too, Vienna. I've had a very emotional day.

Vienna: You know what? That is no excuse. I should never have trusted you.

Henry: Vienna, uh, wait. I can explain.

Vienna: You know what? Don't bother, because I don't even care.

Henry: You don't?

Vienna: No. Barbara's kisses don't matter, 'cause I -- I know where you and I stand.

Henry: You do?

Vienna: Yes, or at least I will know once I tell you the news.

Henry: News? What news?

Vienna: We're pregnant!
