Episode Summary

Melissa C
Before: Melissa is a recovering anorexic turned therapist now working with adolescents with eating disorders. Proud of her personal accomplishments, Melissa believes only one more thing could make her life complete. After a healthy weight gain of 60 pounds, Melissa needs to get on board with her new body, but would also like to propose to her long-time boyfriend, Dan. The Gal Pals order the cup of courage Melissa needs to help her plan a romantic engagement dinner and, hopefully, complete her personal fairy-tale. After: Hair. Makeup. Walnuts. And, oh, right...a marriage proposal! Melissa has an extremely big evening ahead of her but we're certain she's up to the task. Boyfriend Daniel arrives and his face lights up. "You look so amazing." He can't take his eyes off her. The kitchen is great, but the bedroom is better but for Daniel, it's all about the girl. Once he changes into the natty outfit Robbie picked out, the two are a matched set of Hollywood glamour. They share the Cleopatra's Walnuts as an en-route appetizer. Before dinner, they take a quiet sunset stroll along the marina. It's hard to enjoy a meal with a stomach full of butterflies, so Melissa's plan is to pop the question first. But for some reason, Melissa doesn't quite feel the moment is right. She's not seriously considering Robbie's "baked potato" idea, is she? Bolstered by a glass or two of liquid courage, Melissa throws caution into the wind. "I would like to know...if you would marry me." Daniel's reactions: first stunned silence, then the traditional invocation of higher powers ("oh my god," "holy Jesus"), followed happily by joyous acceptance. "Sweetie, of course I'll marry you."moreless
