Episode Summary

Matt and Sarah argue over their wedding plans and their agreement to forego buying an engagement ring and seek Eric for advice, who isn't happy with Matt for getting engaged in the first place. Through the advice of Eric, Matt buys Sarah a fake engagement ring. Mary and Lucy fly to Buffalo for a weekend, or at least that's what Lucy thinks as Mary makes plans of her own. While there, Lucy meets a police officer named Kevin who confiscated her bag, and he invites Lucy and Mary to double-date with him and his brother, but with a big surprise in store for Mary.moreless

  • Probably one of my favorites out of the sixth season.

    Lucy and Mary go to Buffalo. Lucy meets a police officer who turns out to be Ben's brother. Kevin, Ben, Mary, and Lucy all go out for dinner. Matt and Sarah have a fight over engagement rings. Matt buys her a fake one, and then, Annie gives Matt the one her grandmother had to give to Sarah. Ruthie gives Sarah advice about how Matt is more important than a ring.

    This was a great episode! First off, this is the first appearance of George Stults, who eventually marries Lucy. Ben and Mary get back together. I thought Matt's idea of not getting an engagement ring was actually good considering, they are already married and it would save money. At least Sarah got one though, for free. I thought it was kind of funny how Simon kept copying Robbie. I can't believe Mary wants to be a flight attendant and live in Buffalo. Well, I loved this episode, so it gets a perfect 10!moreless

    tbe espiode, the ring for 7th heaven was a wonderful espiode because lucy found her soul mate. also 7th heaven should do 11 seasons too. i know that 7th heaven is on it 10 season but lucy just had her baby girl in the 9th season i want them to go to the 11 season so that savannah can walk and talk too.
