Storyline

Dr. Joel Fleischman has his hands full when his fiancé Elaine flies to Cicely for a visit.

Instead Maggie, entertains Elaine, which only further annoys Joel. Written by Skeeter700

Trivia

This episode pays homage to another show that was being shot in the Washington state region at the same time - Twin Peaks (1990). The falls that Joel and Elaine visit also feature in the David Lynch/ Mark Frost show, the music is very reminiscent of Angelo Badalamenti's iconic score and there are references to coffee, cherry pie and a Log Lady.
