Episode cast overview:
T.J. Castronovo ...
Bartender (as T. J. Castranova)


Mary receives news that her aunt, world famous newspaper reporter Flo Meredith, is soon arriving to Minneapolis to do a story on the Vikings. As excited as Mary is about seeing her aunt again, she is equally as excited for Lou, who seemed to have a thing with her Aunt Flo the last time she was in town. Indeed, Lou is already aware of Flo's imminent arrival and is looking forward to seeing her. Despite Lou and Flo's reunion being punctuated by continued verbal sparring with each other, Lou is indeed happy to see her again. He is so happy that he confides to Mary that he is falling in love with her. Mary convinces Lou to propose, as if he doesn't, he will always wonder if life with Flo was a missed opportunity. As Lou works up the nerve to ask Flo to marry him, Mary seems as invested in a positive outcome so that she can have an "Uncle Mr. Grant". Written by Huggo
