When In Elkford...
: Ep 25 -
Sharon, the only one in her crowd who's not half of a couple, overcompensates by raving about her romantic Italian boyfriend, Marcello. So when he announces he's coming to visit, she's over the moon. And when he arrives, everything is great! But not for long; his ‘European-ness' doesn't translate well to North America. Instead of being romantic and poetic, he just seems dorky and cornball. In an effort to recapture what they had, Sharon tries to make Marcello over into a more North Americanized version. When that doesn't work, she tries to avoid being alone with him. But Marcello doesn't take the hint. Then she tries to turn him off by making herself unattractive. When her scheme fails, Sharon is forced to hire ‘Dirty Work', a project that Adam and his pals started for their Economics Class. Their service is to do the deeds someone can't do on their own. But when the ‘Dirty Work' messenger accidentally gives Brock the message, he thinks Maria is trying to break up with him. Now Sharon finally has to tell Marcello the truth and though he's heartbroken, he helps Sharon get Brock and Maria back together by staging a faux Italian romantic dinner for the couple.moreless
