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.

Loverboyd (#8.22)
11 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Kelly is being sent to Europe to study. It is mainly done to get her away from Woody. He wants to give her a promise ring but they have a fight. Sam gets him to climb up to her room and Woody proposes. Kelly agrees, but Woody feels bad putting her against her dad so they just become secretly engaged.

I can't say I liked this episode. Really not much too laugh about. Maybe it is just too much of Kelly and Woody for an episode. The "look how incredibly dumb I am" humor only goes well in small doses. I just found their conversation on dating other people funny. Norm's small story brings some laughs as well.
