Storyline

Diane waltzes into the bar full of cheer, announcing to Sam that she had a premonition that he would ask her to marry him today; he mocks her and laughs in her face. Superstitious Carla warns Sam not to test the fate of woman's intuition. Diane does whatever she can to set the mood for a proposal and Sam does everything he can to prove to Diane that he won't propose. When they're finally alone just prior to midnight, Sam states that her insistence is driving him nuts and adamantly states that he will never ask her to marry him again. When Diane comes to the realization that it might not happen, her tears start to flow which prompts Sam to ask her to marry him. She says no, again! For a split second, he dreams that he has murdered Diane and is on death row - he chases her out of the bar to perhaps do the deed?! The following day, we find that Diane has had Sam arrested for assault and battery, and has asked newly minted but inept lawyer Tom, who has finally passed the bar examine after... Written by Huggo

Quotes

Sam Malone: [about Diane] You mean I have to propose to her to keep from going to jail, where I wouldn't be going in the first place if she had said 'yes' to any one of my three proposals?
Judge William E. Grey: That's a very ironic way of putting it.

Chambers vs. Malone (#5.13)
21 May 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Diane one day has a feeling that Sam will propose to her, but he never does. At night he talks to her and asks her to stop it, so she starts crying. He proposes but she says "no". Later she gets him to court for assault. They have a trial and the judge makes him propose to Diane and she agrees.

What the hell was that. I am already tired of Diane in this issue so I dislike all episodes that are about it. But this one was even worse. It was very stupid. It made no sense. I couldn't stand Diane even more than I usually do in those stories. And this is how they want to make their proposal happening?Seems like a fail to me.
