Norm is chosen the bar's designated driver for the evening. As such, it starts off to be the worst evening of Norm's life, until... Meanwhile, Mr. Gaines is sending Kelly to study in Europe for a year in an effort to break-up Kelly and Woody's relationship. Woody decides to give Kelly a promise ring before she leaves. She initially accepts it, but gives it back after she and Woody get into an argument about her father's motives. Distraught, Woody decides to rush off to the Gaines household and with Sam's help - solely to hold the ladder - he plans to elope with Kelly. After Woody and Kelly discuss the issue, Mr. Gaines ends up unwittingly deciding their immediate future without he even knowing that he did so. Sam offers less support in the matter.

Sometimes I Get Mad
7 May 2011 | by (New York, NY USA) – See all my reviews

Woody and Kelly become secretly engaged in this forgettable episode, the point of which I still don't understand. Was the goal here to free Woody's character up from his relationship with Kelly so he could date other women? That's the only possible explanation for sending Kelly to Europe. In spite of the fact that Woody promises her he will date while she's away, he never does, which begs the question: What was the point?

This is Woody & Kelly's show, all the way... Harrelson and Jackie Swanson achieve a kind of zen stupidity, especially in the scene in which Kelly gets angry with Woody and tells him to take his ring back: "No, seriously, can anyone tell me what that means?!?"

Norm's designated driver sub-plot is cute, but not exactly hilarious. The rest of this episode is spent trying to get Sam involved in the proceedings so he can accompany Woody on his romantic adventure. Malone winds up eating cheddar cheese popcorn and watching Ghostbusters.

You can't blame him.
