    Not the strongest episode of What I Like About You, but we did get some improvement after that rather disappointing premiere. Lets face it, What I Like About You isn't the funniest sitcom there is, but it is always a very enjoyable and entertaining one, and I surely was entertained here.

    This episode was also rather eventful which I also very much enjoyed. From Holly deciding to wait to "do laundry" to Rick proposing to Val in the very end, this was an eventful episode, that set the rest of the series in motion.

    We did see a lot of forced comedy here, true, I did get a few genuine laughs, but nothing was really special here in the comedy department. Vince just acts like he does the rest of the season, like a complete idiot falling over Holly, in a very albeit unfunny way.

    The interactions that were good here was the sister moment that Holly & Val share, we got season 1 quality in that department, when this show was about sisters, so that really helped this episode a lot. Overall, a good episode, could have been executed better though.moreless
  • Holly moves out when Val tells her Ben can't stay in the loft. Meanwhile, Val regrets saying no to Rick's proposal.

    This episode wasn't too bad, but it wasn't the best in the series. The part where Ben and Holly were sleeping on Vince's couch was hilarious XD Ben slept in his boxers that had little duckies on them, and when she felt them "moving" she quickly left and went back to the loft XD It was gross, but funny XD Val finally accepts Rick's proposal of marriage. But she does so only after she talks to Holly, and straightens out a few odds and ends. Those would be how Val is afraid of getting hurt and dumped, and treats Holly like she's afraid Holly will get hurt as well.moreless
  • Great episode!

    Holly wants Ben to move in, but Val doesn't think it's a good idea. Holly and Ben move to Vince's for a short time. Holly tells Tina that she and Ben haven't done it yet. Lauren tries to give Val advice about Holly and Rick. Vince is very jealous of Ben. Holly helps Val approach Rick and they get engaged again.

    This was a great episode! I applaud Holly's virginity! Lauren actually had some good advice! This was a funny episode also! I loved it when Holly was talking about "laundry." This episode gets a 9.5 out of 10 from me!moreless
