At the Lakeview, Katie is telling Henry to put his fling with Barbara in the past and concentrate on his wedding to Vienna. They reminisce about their gym wedding and giggle. Vienna walks in on this and looks uncomfortable. Henry gets her to join them and she watches nervously when he hugs Katie as she leaves. The couple look through wedding magazines and she gasps when she finds a dress she loves. When she looks up the designer, she laughs and says it's a Barbara Ryan. He tries to talk her out of it but she won't back down so he offers to handle it.

Paul runs into his mother on the street. She tells him she wants to reconnect to him and the family. "Does that mean you're going to take some time off from boinking my baby brother?" he asks. She's offended and insists that this is barely incest. Paul's smug. They bicker and she tells him Henry is marrying someone else. He doesn't want her around his daughter while he's trying to make her life stable. Barbara storms away as Emily returns.

"Anybody would be lucky to have you love them," Henry says.

He gets the baby and they talk about the child they lost.

Katie runs into Chris in Old Town and asks him where Ali is. He tells her that her plan kind of worked but Alison has no interest in him. She rants about how hard matchmaking is and ends up spilling his coffee all over her chest. He wipes it up, which creates an awkward moment. She changes out of her jacket and he puts his on her. They smile and flirt until she walks away.
