Katie plays matchmaker, Noah goes under the knife and Vienna gets desperate.
In his room, Henry looks for his watch. Vienna wonders why he doesn't want to be with her anymore. He likes fun and bondage but he doesn't want her tricking him into getting her pregnant. She agrees to wait to get married... but only if they can get pregnant while they wait. He doesn't think they are solid enough for that. When she asks him if he doesn't want to marry her, he hides in the closet. He comes out in a minute and says that a man would be crazy not to want to be with her... but he doesn't feel worthy. He suggests that they try having separate rooms. She thinks that's a terrible idea.
Casey runs into Alison in Old Town. She's startled that he's talking to her. He asks her out for coffee. She has to go to the movies with Katie so she takes a rain check and walks off.
Barbara meets Katie at the Lakeview. The blond introduces her to Rex, the anchor at WOAK. She runs off and leaves them to sit down to brunch. Rex asks her if she watches his broadcast in her bedroom. He goes on and on about himself, asking her over to his place to watch him on DVD. When he tells her that she's not very exciting, a man named Joe, who has been listening in, comes over and pretends to be Barbara's boyfriend. Rex leaves with a pout and Joe asks Barbara to have lunch with him. He regales her with pilot stories and she begins rambling about Henry.
At the hospital, Chris asks Reid if he can really handle Noah's surgery. Reid's smug.
Luke walks down the hall to Noah's room. Noah's wired. Luke brought a camera so Noah could talk about how he feels. He's excited and scared. Luke gets in the picture with him and Dr. Oliver walks in and glares. Noah stutters. Reid is confident about the operation. The nurse arrives and wheels the patient out. Luke asks Reid to take care of him. "That's what you dragged me here for," Reid snipes. After he leaves, Katie arrives with a four leaf clover. She talks about Reid with Luke and she says that the doctor likes him. He doubts that but she's sure Luke has changed him. He paces around nervously.
Reid is in the operating room getting things ready. He gets Noah to relax so his blood pressure will go down. They put Noah under. He hallucinates filming Luke walking to his camera. The operation starts going wrong.
Reid walks out to see Luke and tells him that there was leak and Noah might have brain damage.
When Alison arrives at the theater, she finds that Katie is there with Chris. They guess that Katie is setting them up again. Katie runs off. Alison tells him this isn't a date and she doesn't want to be there. He talks her into staying. After the movie, they go outside and joke around. As they giggle, Casey spots them. He assumes Ali lied to him and stomps off. She walks away.
Vienna goes down to the bar and orders a drink. Casey arrives and sits with her. They chat and he tells her that Henry is a fool if he doesn't want her. When she says that Henry won't give her what she wants, he tells her she should find someone else. They drink some more. She looks over his features, declares that he's right for what she needs and suggests they leave.
Henry goes to see Katie and tells her about Vienna's attempt to get pregnant. She tells him he just needs to be sweet. He wants separate rooms so his 'soldiers won't be hijacked'. Katie orders him to go and knock Vienna up. She tells him this is his last chance with Vienna. He thinks about Barbara... Katie tells him to stop and rushes him out. Chris shows up a moment later. He tells her she needs to learn to back off. She thinks he's so desperate he needs her help. He thinks she's just lonely and begs her to get off his case. Jacob wakes up. When Chris holds him, he whispers that they need to find Katie a man.
Henry walks into the Lakeview and sees Barbara sitting alone. He's about to walk over to her when Joe returns to her table. He watches them and his heart sinks.
