Rose: Men would rather pay for cupcakes.
Dorothy: Now, listen here, you little Swedish meatball! I... wait. You're actually talking about cupcakes aren't you?

A Midwinter Night's Dream (#7.19)
25 February 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It is a full moon night and Blanche is throwing a party. She doesn't invite many women as she wants to get all the guys affected by full moon. Rose and Miles decide to get married. And Sophia wants to break a curse. When Dorothy and Miles make a mistake and kiss each other she thinks of telling it to Rose. And Blanche falls in love for a British thief.

A pretty good and very eventful episode. There was so much happening it is hard to keep all in track.

It was especially fun when Rose tells Miles and Dorothy to kiss to make up right before Sophia tells it to her
