After Niles blurts out a marriage proposal to C.C., she flatly turns him down. Niles is devastated and angry at Fran for pushing him into this situation. Fran thinks Niles' mistake was that he took things too quickly with C.C. Fran suggests he court C.C., first by asking her out to dinner. C.C. reluctantly agrees. But at dinner, Niles proposes once again, and C.C. turns him down once again. Humiliated, Niles feels he can't be around C.C. anymore and quits his job. After a heated argument with Niles, C.C. realizes that she too has outstayed her welcome at the Sheffield house and quits as well. But in the middle of the night when Fran and Maxwell rush to Niles' room to convince him to stay, they find they can't interrupt him during this important moment in his life. Meanwhile, Margot - Dr. Reynolds' sister who is filling in for her conference bound sister - provides Maxwell and Fran with two baby dolls so that they can practice being parents to twins.
