talks about the wedding. She tells her not to be 'foolish, weak and fickle'.
Mel doesn't appreciate that and they bicker. Mel accuses her of being mean
for trying to trap her into this marriage. "You're going to marry Philip
even if it kills you," Viv says. She guesses that Mel is pining for someone
else. Mel admits it. Viv guesses it's Nathan she's pining for and tells her
that she can't back out now. Pouting and crying, Mel says she doesn't like
being talked to like this. As she hyperventilates, Philip walks in. Viv
