Henry wakes up on Katie's couch. She's mocking him for hearing voices. He insists he really heard Barbara's voice. She rushes off to get food and Henry paces. He hears the voice coming through the monitor again. He grabs the monitor as Katie walks in. "I found Barbabra. She's in here," he says, waving the machine. The signal dies and Katie tears the monitor away. She thinks he's flipping out. He storms off.

Henry rushes in and says he heard from Barbara through a baby monitor. "Did she reveal the whereabouts of the holy grail?" Paul asks. Will asks for details. Henry tells him everything and then storms off to find Barbara alone.

At the station, Tom and Margo gab until Chris arrives and announces that he's thrown his hat in the ring for Bob's job. They agree to pull some strings for him. Tom bustles off and Margo wonders if this is what Chris really wants and suggests he's trying to impress her sister. He claims this is no whim. She babbles until Katie walks in to tell her sister what happened with Henry. Chris starts mocking this and the three of them bicker until he announces that he's going for Bob's job. She's bewildered.

Katie takes Chris outside so he can explain himself to her. She digs for reasons and he tells her he's trying to prove he can be counted on to make a commitment. "I'm doing this for you," he says. This is a lot for her to take in. He thinks she deserves good things and says she needs to let him prove she can be happy again. They kiss.

Will follows Henry back to Katie's and offers to help him find Barbara. Henry tells him everything that happened and then suggests they stake out Barbara's room.

Gwen returns to Fairwinds and tries asking Paul a favor. Iris walks in before she can explain. "You want your mother to stay with me?" he asks in horror. They send Iris into the kitchen. Gwen says it would only be for a few days. Paul offers to buy her a bus ticket out of town. Will arrives and realizes Iris is there. He tells her to send her mom away. They argue until Paul gets sick of listening and says Iris can stay. She returns and says she'll leave. They ask her to stay. Paul tells her to stay away from his silverware. Iris whips out a phone and takes a picture of them all together.

Henry arrives at Barbara's room and get an idea. He gets into drag and dresses as a maid.

Tom returns to the station to see Margo and they chat about Chris and Katie. She admits that he was right about them. Tom decides to call Chris and Katie and invite them up to the cabin for a family weekend. When he calls, Katie says they'll have to discuss it. She and Chris begin bickering about suddenly becoming a couple. She thinks he's trying to test her to see if she's worth it. He thinks that's she's scared he'll pressure her for sex. She's offended and tells him she's no prude but she won't sleep with him while her sister is listening in the next room.

In the warehouse, Barbara freaks out and screams. She yells at Chuckles and then recaps the situation for him and weighs her options. Sobbing, she tells Chuckles how abandoned she feels. If only she had Henry's arms around her, maybe she could get through this... She asks the clown to dance with her. Barbara twirls the clown around the floor and cries until she can hear Henry's voice again. Iris walks in and ruins the mood. She shows Barbara the picture she took and says that no one misses her. Iris advises her to give her the passwords before she whithers away.
