I Do
AIRED:
Monica tries to determine God's greatest gift to humans and hypothesizes that it might be marriage, the wedding of two people. Tess reminds her that a marriage is much more than a wedding ceremony. Stephanie and Michael are planning to elope with Michael's younger brother, Eddie, in tow, when Nancy, Michael's mother, finds out and demands that they have a traditional wedding. Stephanie and Michael relents and Monica and Tess note that this family runs like a dictatorship. While Stephanie is trying on dresses at Tess' dress shop, Eddie gives Michael a special gift, their deceased father's favorite tie, reworked as a bowtie so Michael can wear it at the wedding. At the bachelor party, Monica pops out of a cake, and befriends Eddie, who asks her to be his date for the wedding. On the day of the wedding, Stephanie and Nancy receive news that Michael and Eddie have been in a car accident. They rush to the hospital, Stephanie still in her wedding dress, to find Eddie fine, but Michael in a coma. Nancy scolds Eddie because he was driving the car and Monica suggests he work through his guilt and sorrow through prayer. Nancy makes Michael's medical decisions on her own, angering Stephanie and Michael. As surgery begins Andrew takes Michael's soul out of the operating room and into a forest where they discuss his future. Andrew tells Michael if he lives, he will be handicapped. Not wanting ti burden his family, Michael asks God to let him die. In the chapel, Monica helps Eddie to pray, putting his brother's fate in the hand's of God.
