Sylvia is at dinner looking over Mr. Sheffield's shoulder watching him eat. This makes Maxwell very uncomfortable and offers for her to take an actual seat. She then says that she only came over to see how Fran's date went and then steals food off of Gracie Sheffield plate. Brighten then says that he likes Jules and boasts about how Jules has yet to beat him at chess (He doesn't know Jules is letting him win). Maxwell then explains how Jules throws every game to let him win. He then goes on to say how Fran's relationships always end in disaster. Fran then rushes in and screams that Jules asked her to marry him. Maxwell starts saying how odd it was that they were getting married when they've only known each other for 2 weeks. When Maggie Sheffield asks if she can be a bridesmaid Fran then says that she didn't say yes just as Sylvia entered the room again and faints when she hears that Fran declines the marriage. Fran doesn't notice her mother fainting and when Sylvie says 'why don't you grab a knife and stick it straight threw my heart' she thinks Gracie did an impersonation of Sylvia and congratulates her. Then she notices Sylvia and they start running around the room. Sylvia hold a corn above her head threatening to throw it at Fran

They then run into the kitchen where Fran takes the extension cord of the sink for dishes and holds it to Sylvia where she threatens to spray her if she doesn't put down the corn. They talk about why Fran said no and then Fran says that she'll accept the ring

In the next shot Fran and Jules go shopping for rings and Fran says she wants a simple ring. Jules then says that they don't want to see anything less then 5 karats. A women gives them a 5.2 karat ring and Jules says it doesn't sparkle enough. Fran, thinking their trying to heckle her for a better price goes along with it and agrees. He then goes outside to see if the ring sparkles. The women then noises that Jules hasn't come back and she calls the police. Jules has stolen the ring
