It's a missing person case. Alan Tupperman wants to get married and he knows to who, he has a full description of his perfect woman, he's just never met her and hires the agency to find her. David and Maddie have different interpretations of his list and hold a contest over who will find his bride. Maddie's choice is all about substance, David's is all about looks. They send over both girls and let him decide. When looking for an answer they find he may have married both of them, investigating further only leads to more things that don't add up.
