  • Great episode!

    The invitations for Simon and Rose's wedding are mailed. It's the same day as Matt and Sarah's graduation. Rose doesn't want to change the wedding date. Kevin gives Simon the idea of eloping. Umberto and Annie scheme to prevent them from eloping. Ruthie wants to go to Scotland with Peter. Rose apologizes to Annie about how she's been a horrible person. She also explains why she thinks that she's like that. Annie doesn't think that Simon and Rose will get married.

    This was a great episode! I loved seeing Sarah again! I think that Ruthie should go to Scotland, but not just for guys. I'm glad that Rose apologized, but now I'm so used to her as a mean, conceited person. This episode gets a 9.5 out of 10!moreless
  • good to see annie nd rose actually talking and actually listenin to eachother

    well let me just say that when annie opened the envelopes i new it was guna be a disatster matt nd sarahs graduation nd simon nd roses wedding on the 13th may. The funniest part of this was when rose and sarah were on the phone talkin and sarah asked them to change the wedding date nd rose wasnt havin any of it the usual rose. I dont really like umberto that much i think hes a girlfriend stealer, rose and simon are happy together thats all that matters i know simon says that shes a bit pushy but they still love eachother and umberto should just realise that and stick with being an ex boyfriend not a future one. I loved the part when annie nd rose met up together and was talking i actually felt sorry for rose and was nearly crying myself. As for ruthie going to scotland using kevin and lucys money where did kevin get that much money from anyway? Ruthies going to have to do loads of babysitting to pay all that money back well anyway this episode was quite normal but i did not expect annie and rose to have a nice chat she even said phone me when u get home for me to know whether you got home alright.moreless
  • Rose and Annie finally make peace.

    This episode is definitely one of my most favorite episodes of 7th Heaven, both from this season and from the series as a whole. I absolutely loved Catherine Hicks' acting in this episode, and I also really enjoyed Sarah Thompson's portrayal of Rose. Sarah does such a good job of playing the type of person who is extremely self absorbed. I really liked her acting in the scene where she apologizes to Annie for her behavior. While I kind of hated to see Rose stop being at odds with the Camden's, I understand that the writers had to have Rose redeem herself and stop being so self centered. All in all, I think that this was a classic 7th Heaven episode. I will cherish it forever.moreless
  • You know, I didn't like Rose very well up & until this episode, and since this episode, I don't know...

    All along, Rose's attitude bugged the heck out of me... and it was fairly obvious all along that both Rose & Simon didn't want to get married to the other person.

    In this episode, it was fairly obvious that Rose & Umberto were meant to be together (in my opinion). It was Umberto who got Rose to understand that she was being difficult, not Simon. It was Umberto who got Rose to change her attitude, and to go to Annie to apologize, not Simon.

    And then there was Simon. It was pretty obvious that while he loved Rose in that family/friend sort of way, he wasn't *In* love with Rose... no matter how much he tried to deny it. Granted he understood Rose, and they made a good dating couple, but I just could never see the two of them married.

    Besides, When Sandy told him that she still had feelings for him... it was pretty obvious that he still had feelings for her. But again, that's just my opinion...moreless
  • Uh-oh! Graduation and wedding on the same day - great set-up to another classic episode!

    Upon learning that Simon and Rose\'s wedding is to be on the same day as Matt\'s graduation, Annie sets about changing the date of the wedding all on her own! Classic Annie! Meanwhile, Eric and Kevin conjure up a plan to get Simon and Rose to elope. In the midst of all the plotting, Annie finds an unlikely ally in her plans to foil the wedding in Umberto! Rose (with a little help) realises that her attitude has been all wrong and we learn why she is the way she is. Rose, a nice person - who knew?moreless

    • Rose: Annie, I'd hate me too if I were you. I would be terrified of me marrying your son if I were you. I'm...I'm not the person I want to be. I'm not even close. I apologize. I'm sorry. I haven't been very nice. I've been completely self-centered and condescending, and really in your face, like I've won some victory over you in getting your son to marry me. I don't offer this as an excuse, but I do want to explain a little of where this is coming from, or where I think it's coming from. I think I started getting like this after my parents divorced. I blamed myself, and the more I blamed myself, the worse I felt, and the less I thought of myself. And to hide that, I started acting superior to everyone, so no one would know that I feel like nothing.
      Annie: Oh, Rose.
      Rose: This is hard for me. Please let me just get this out. I wanted to be that child that the parents stayed together for, or I wanted to be that child that the parents fought over, argued about. You hear these stories where couples battle it out for custody. Not my parents. Neither of them wanted me. They fought about who should get stuck with having to raise me - whose idea it was to have me in the first place. I practically lived by myself after they got divorced. They would constantly scream at each other about whose turn it was to take me. Too busy. They were both too busy with their work and their relationships, and they still are. Look, they're nice people - just really not such great parents. I mean, they've taken care of me financially, and I'm grateful for that. They paid my way through school, and they really do provide me all the material things I need. I know that they're doing the best they can for who they are, but I know that I'm not. I'm not doing the best that I can for who I am. I'm gonna be a better person. I'm gonna be a good wife. I'm gonna be a good daughter-in-law. I promise I mean that.
      Annie: (tears in her eyes) Oh, Rose, I don't know what to say. I feel so badly that we haven't been nicer to you.
      Rose: Why would you? I've been horrible. But I'm hoping that realizing that I've been horrible helps somehow. I realize now that pretending to be better than everybody else really isn't going to work for me. I want to just be the nice person that I think I really am, but I may need some help. I may need a lot of help.
      Annie: Oh, Rose, look, I've been a horrible person too, and I so apologize. I'll do anything I can to help you.
      Rose: Apology and offer of help accepted. Just please, please give me a chance to start over with you and the rest of the family.
      Annie: Oh, of course. Of course. Look, it took a lot of guts for you to do this, and I really respect your doing this. You should be so proud of yourself.
      Rose: But not too proud. (they laugh)

    • Sam: ... Here's the mail
      Eric: (sorts through it) You can have the junk mail, just don't bring back anymore invitations.

    • Annie: I've got some good news and some bad news. The good news is I really, really like Rose - love her, even. Oh, she's not such an awful person after all.
      Eric: Well, you're on your cell phone, so I won't ask you to explain that, but quickly, what's the bad news?
      Annie: The bad news is, I'm not so sure she's gonna end up with Simon.
