Hank and Divya return to see Barbie, who is feeling worse. The light therapy box Hank gave her for her seasonal disorder has been ineffective. Her muscles and joints are now aching, symptoms that do not fit with Hank's earlier diagnosis. Hank suggests some blood work to investigate other possible causes. Divya gets a call from the radiologist who reviewed Hank's CT scan and the results are negative. Hank feels vindicated but Divya is still worried...

Episode Quotes
Divya: You may be the first unflappable bride in the history of weddings.
Paige: Well, just wait. When you get married, you'll see the wedding is all about the big picture.

Paige: (to Hank, Evan and Eddie) Okay, stop messing with the Shiksa. I know you know it's the first night of Hanukkah.

Eddie R. Lawson: Is this because of the ring?
Paige: You know it's not an heirloom?
Eddie R. Lawson: I bought it on eBay.
Paige: Why would you make up that story?
Eddie R. Lawson: Because I heard how important tradition was to you, and I knew how little tradition we have in the Lawson family.
Paige: Okay, but you can't just make up traditions.
Eddie R. Lawson: I also wanted you to think you were marrying into a normal family. You know, because yours is so upstanding, so well-respected. Oh, Paige, I made a gigantic error here, and I am so sorry.

Divya: Hank... Rafa and I got married. I had to tell someone. But please, don't say a word. I do not want to step on Paige and Evan's wedding. Why are you looking at me like that?
Hank: Did you just say you married Rafa?
Divya: Yeah. In Las Vegas. But nobody else knows.
Hank: I understand why you didn't marry Raj even though you were with him for 15 years, but I don't get how you could marry Rafa after dating him for 15 minutes.
Divya: I love him. That's how.
Hank: A week ago you were over him. What happens next week?
Divya: So now you are an authority on love?
Hank: No, but what you did was very impulsive, especially for you.
Divya: So you can do what you want to do, and you can date who you want to date, but I need to remain predictable and unchanging?
Hank: You married him. And I know how seriously you take marriage. Divya, you made a mistake.
Divya: I thought that you were my friend.
Hank: I am.
Divya: Okay. Then support me on this.

Divya: How on earth did you get here?
Rafa: It doesn't matter. I promised to be here. I will never let you down again.

Evan: That day I talked you into coming to the Hamptons, I told you it was for your own good. The truth is, I was thinking about myself. So I waltzed into your apartment and I manipulated you and used you.
Hank: Okay. But it all worked out. We were both at our lowest moments and you dug me out of mine. Coming here changed our lives... for the better. And it definitely repaired our relationship. We became friends again. And brothers like we've never been before. I will always, always be grateful.

Paige: A wedding isn't about a lot of things, but it's definitely not about the past. It's about the future. And I can't wait to see how you and I reinvent ourselves as newlyweds. Because you, Evan R. Lawson, CFO of Hankmed, always have been and always will be my good stuff.

Divya: Look, I know that I want to enjoy this relationship and not just keep pushing it forward. So as much as I love how I feel about you, how I feel when I am with you, the last thing that I want is to get caught up in these feelings and just keep rushing things.
Rafa: You want us to really get to know one another?
Divya: Yeah. But first, we need to end this marriage.
