Ben meets Peter's mom and sparks fly! Ruthie kisses Peter. Eric and Annie enjoy their hotel room. Simon and Cecilia talk about what they love about each other. It's Sam and David's birthday!

    "I Love Lucy": This was a charming and beautiful episode that was very enjoyable from start to finish. Even the commercial previews made me want to watch this episode a little more than usual when compared to most episodes.



    Finally, we the viewers can move on as the writers have finally stop dragging the Kevin and Lucy storyline and got these two engaged. Plus, I'm glad the writer's made Kevin propose to Lucy in the middle of the episode, and the aftermath instead of dragging us viewers until the end of the show for him to pop the question. This episode really played the "ideal" for women who want to get married and how they want to get proposed. In fact, it's probably the kind of proposal almost any woman alive would want to get-- but most don't.



    Kevin and Lucy: Much of the season I have not liked Kevin and Lucy. But for some reason, both (especially Kevin) seemed to woo me a little more in this episode. Maybe because Kevin didn't have as much dialogue in this episode as usual, but he was actually (I can't believe I'm saying this) kind of charming. I think it was because he had no insults for anyone in the episode. Maybe, that's it. But anyway he was quite good. But again, stop with the smirks Kevin! Now, Lucy... my dear Lucy, how may I count the ways. Your whiny-self finally got what you wanted even though you didn't really deserve it by the way you've been acting lately. But still, in this episode her presence was quite okay and I was rooting for her (wow, that's been awhile).



    Eric and Annie: Both of them were so pleasant as usual in this episode even though their time was limited a little more than usual in this episode, as this episode being more about Kevin and Lucy. Even so, it's great that Eric and Annie were lovey-dovey. We haven't seen them like that in a long time and it's gratifying as a "7th Heaven" viewer to see that's this long-married couple is still madly in love with each other even with their struggles. Also, it's great for them to realize in the end that Eric has to decide whether he wants to marry Lucy and Kevin (as he knows Lucy will ask him) and whether or not he wants to be a minister again as it is bound to come up.



    Ruthie and Peter: I liked Ruthie and Peter a lot in this episode. Basically these two were just going with the flow and being a little "friend" date at the family gathering for Lucy. Also, what a surprise that the writers would pull a Snow White in reverse, as Ruthie kisses her prince for him to wake up. And of course, being Ruthie, she denies she did kiss him when he wakes up. Hehe. It was really very cute and innocent. Although, I must say, usually most children (especially Peter's age) being raised by a single parent wouldn't voluntarily want to hook them up with someone else.



    Simon and Cecelia: Again, just like Ruthie and Peter, this couple was also going with the flow in support for Lucy and Kevin as this was their episode. Hopefully, though, Simon and Cecelia have talked earlier and changed those unfair dating rules that she set for the both of them in "It's Not Always About You." Anyway, the teenage puppy-love talk over the phone between the two at the end of the night was quite basic and okay.



    Roxanne and Chandler: They are really growing on me each week. I'm so glad he didn't pop the question. Thank you writers. Let the relationship evolve more. I kind of like this couple even with the over-sexed Roxanne.



    Ben and Paris: Okay, this is probably the only downfall I have to say about this episode. I found these too quite creepy, especially the mother. I mean she just threw herself at him- to a complete stranger and this is a single middle-aged mother doing this to a guy who could probably be her son! She and Bo Derek looked around the same age. But hey, since it's Valentine's Day people can do silly things and just hook up. But still, a little creepy.



    Overall, this episode was magnificent. Usually, I don't like it when "7th Heaven" episodes are so relationship-driven but this was one exception. Lucy and a lot of viewers finally got what they wanted. Now, luckily for us viewers, the engagement will be short and we can look forward to a nice wedding in April with the return of Mary and Matt. I know (as I know others) can't wait for this 150th episode and the wedding. With that closed, we can look forward to four more episodes with new storylines and the closing of the season.



    Grade: **9.5 out of 10**



    Rants and Bits:

    *Glad to see Bobby Short singing and playing music on that beautiful piano in this episode. That man still hasn't lost his touch!



    *The writers are gradually improving on Sam and David's appearances and speech. But what would really help is for them to stop talking in unison.



    *Even though Kevin explains that he can fully afford everything and is financially covered, I'm still curious on how a cops salary he can afford all of that (ie. Eric & Annie's hotel room, ballroom, Lucy's driver and car, Sam and David's present, That's a Big Ring!) Just curious.



    *I knew sooner or later the writers were going to have an episode title called "I Love Lucy" with a character like Lucy on the show.



    *Nice to see that Roxanne thinks Lucy is growing on her and with her crazy-antics. Again, the writers (thank God) are beginning to tame the Lucy and Roxanne tension and settling them into eventual friends.



    *Nice seeing Bo Derek. She was a "10" (Y'all knew I had to put that in). But no braids Bo?moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (8)

    • It turns out that Kevin is financially stable.

    • When Ruthie goes to kiss Peter, if you look closely, she actually kisses just under his lips, not on them.

    • In response to "When Peter introduces his mother to Ben, he tells Ben, "You be careful, that's my mother." Ben shoots back that Peter should be nice to Ruthie with "You be careful, that's my sister-in-law." But if Kevin and Lucy get married, Ruthie will be Kevin's sister-in-law, not Ben's. Ruthie will be his sister-in-law's sister." Ben is more brawn than brains. He probably didn't think about what he was saying. (Or he may have thought that he still had a chance with Mary.)

    • Reaction on:"When Kevin tells Chandler who Ben is, how does Chandler seem to know who he is? They've never met."
      Kevin probably allready talked to Chandler about Ben.

    • Chandler gives his credit card to the gas station worker, and talks to Roxanne. When the worker returns, all Chandler gets is a receipt which he just crumples. So, what happens to the credit card?

    • Since Kevin made such a big deal about inviting his mother and his brother to see him propose to Lucy, why didn't he invite his sister Patty Mary too?

    • When Kevin tells Chandler who Ben is, how does Chandler seem to know who he is? They've never met.

    • When Peter introduces his mother to Ben, he tells Ben, "You be careful, that's my mother." Ben shoots back that Peter should be nice to Ruthie with "You be careful, that's my sister-in-law." But if Kevin and Lucy get married, Ruthie will be Kevin's sister-in-law, not Ben's. Ruthie will be his sister-in-law's sister.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Lucy to Eric and Annie: "Did he call?"

      Annie to Lucy: "No."

      Lucy to Annie & Eric: "Hmm he'll call when I don't show up."

    • Peter to Ruthie: "I'll decide when we kiss."

    • Lucy to herself: "How could you be so stupid!? You know you wanted him to ask you to marry him tonight!"

      Lucy to Max: "I told you something bad was going to happen. When she's in the middle of her crab legs, it'll suddenly occur to her that Chandler is not the guy for her and she'll find us and... Oh my God. She said he was going to ask her to marry him. Ugh. I hate her. I hate him too. They don't even know each other. Kevin and I know each other. We're in love with each other. We should be getting engaged tonight. Not them. I may look like the crazy person, but they're the crazy people. Crazy people who are going to get married before I do. When I see Kevin, he is so going to get a piece of my heart. He probaly knows Chandler is going to propose to her and that's why he is being nice and going through all this trouble."

      Lucy to Kevin: "Your What?"

      Kevin to Lucy: "Let just say I'm financially stable, we're fincially stable."

      Kevin to Lucy: "Lucy Camden, will you marry me?"

      Lucy looking up: "Thank you."

      Lucy to Kevin: "Yes Kevin Kinkirk, I will marry you."
