  • Winston bugs Cindy to marry her even though she keeps saying no. She eventually agrees to marry him but he hates kids so Jack and Janet uses an neighbor's kids to fool Winston. To say the least, it worked and he left without his bride.moreless

    Before the review, I just have 1 question. Why didn't TVLand aired Chrissy's phone call to Janet?

    Anyway, altough it wasn't their best, it was still crazy as Cindy tries to tell Winston no but, to no sucess. After she agrees to marry him and menchod the fact that he hates kids Jacdk and Janet fools him with the neighbor's kids it worked and the wedding was off.
