Petruchio claims that his interaction with Kate went fantastically, that they are in love (in fact, that she loves him madly) and that she is sweet as sweet can be. In fact, he practically had to pry her off him (which is actually true, as Kate's reaction to Petruchio's sexual innuendos and domineering personality is to hit him), but they've decided they want to keep the relationship on the down-low. He's taking off for a few days and will be back Sunday to marry Kate. Baptista is psyched, as he has had a really hard time "unloading" his eldest daughter and can't marry off the youngest until Kate is taken off his hands. :)
