  • Isabel makes a very important desicion

    9.6
    This episode introduces the whole story line which follows the marriage of Jesse and Isabel which at one time is not something I approve of, but at the same time was important for the development of this season. There is a time in every teen based drama that an entirely unrealistic marriage takes place (reference One Tree Hill) but this was better because he is older and they were trying to make Isabel more mature this season with the hair and her being in college. Back to my point I like that she is finally taking risks and going after something that she wants. The scenes with Alex were also very sweet and it was nice to see them have their final goodbye. They were really good together in this episode although it made me really angry when Micheal and Max just told her to lie when they both have girlfriends who know their secret and can't understand what she is going through. And quickly to the rest of them, Max and Liz were cute and bearable in this episode and it is nice to see the progression happen with her father. And as always Micheal and Maria were really funny and I really like the incorporation of his buddies from work into the show.moreless
  • Isabel visits Jesse's dreams and learn that he plans on proposing to her.

    7.1
    Although this episode is not only focused on Jesse proposing, it's the main ''event''. Colin Hanks saves this average episode by appearing as Alex's ghost who gives his blessings to Isabel.



    This episode also focuses on Maria and Michael. Michael has new friends from his job and he has a great time with them, which interferes with his relationship with Maria. But all ends well as Maria acts as the perfect girlfriend who understands. Michael really doesn't deserve her. Lucky for him the Roswell script writers don't want to ruin this couple.



    The problem with this episode is that it's too focused on relationships and not enough on the alien stuff. I'm watching Roswell, not Dawson's Creek.moreless
  • In this episode everybody deals with problems in their relationship and Isabel and Jesse get engaged

    9.8
    This is a really good episode that features a lot of character development.

    All the scenes with Jess and Isable were really great in this episode and by the end i was really happy to see them together and the whole engagment was kind of hilarious. Alex coming back was really sad too, because he finally issued his final goodbye to isabel and really to the show. Also the thing with Maria and Michel was really funny and they both started acting a little less selfish in this episode and the whole thing at the bowling ally was perfect at classic Michelmoreless

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Alex (to Isabel about her future since he will not be there): Ouch! That stings a little.

    • Isabel: You graduated with Honors from Harvard Law School. You could be working for the most prestigious law firm in the country. If you stay your throwing your future away because we don't have a future.
      Jesse: I love you, Isabel.
      Isabel: You can't.....So don't. Just don't. (Isabel walks away)

    • Isabel: If I ever have a son, I'm going to name him Alex.

    • Michael: What kind of mood are you in?
      Maria: That's a loaded question. Do you want both barrels now, or should I save one for later in case you forgot to clean the sheets?

    • Kyle: What are you afraid of? What do you think's gonna happen? He's gonna run away? Isabel, has anyone you've shared this with ever run away from you? Name one person. Let him in. Let him deal with it.

    • Isabel: I'm cursed.
      Alex: You are not.
      Isabel: Look what happened to you - you were killed by an alien.

    • Isabel: How did you know to tell Liz? I just do.
      Max: Right now, I'm not so sure it was the best idea to tell Liz. It's screwing up her entire life.
      Isabel: No matter how much it screws up her life, you still have each other. Isn't that the most important thing?
      Max: Think about Jesse, Isabel. We agreed not to tell anyone else after Alex died because we didn't want to put anyone else at risk. The second you tell Jesse, his life changes... Forever. He becomes a part of a secret he didn't ask to be part of. You can't tell him, isabel. For his sake.

    • Isabel: Jesse, what I wanted to say is just that, you know, if we're gonna continue in this relationship, it needs to be about now. I can't promise you tomorrow, and I just need you to understand that.
      Jesse: Oh.
      Isabel: What were you gonna say to me?
      Jesse: Pretty much the opposite.

    • Steve: Is that her? That's your girl?
      Michael: That's her.
      Fly: Did you ever ask her to wear that uniform off duty?

    • Maria: Where were you?
      Michael: Where was I supposed to be?
      Maria: We were supposed to have lunch at school today.
      Michael: Today's Saturday?
      Maria: No. Today's Friday. Hello, where are you?
      Michael: I'm right here. Where's Saturday?
      Maria: What? Are you guys saving the world from alien invasion?
      Michael: Will that keep you from kicking my ass?
