Hannah smiles as runs across the street and drops an envelope in the mailbox. It's addressed to Colorado A&M. Aw, yeah.
Brown House. Treat is getting ready for his big moment. Ephram asks him what he did while he was in New York. Treat says he took some flowers to Julia's grave, and just talked to her, strange as it sounds. Ephram: "No, it doesn't sound strange. Now, when we just moved here, and you were talking to her in public? That was a little strange." Ephram asks Treat if he's really going to do it, and Treat tells him that nobody could ever replace his mother. Ephram says he knows; it's just that he's so used to things not working out the way they're supposed to that it's just a little weird when something looks like it's going to happen. Treat tells him not to jinx it; she hasn't said yes yet. Ephram recalls Dimples's words about everyone having that picture in their minds of how they think their life is supposed to be. "Makes you wonder if maybe I should hold out a little longer for my picture -- Amy and I." Treat tells Ephram that the thing about the picture is how he looks in it. "It's not about who you're standing next to or what's in the background. It's...are you smiling? Are you happy? If you are, it doesn't matter where you're standing or who you're standing next to. It's a good picture. You're way ahead of the game, Ephram." Ephram says it doesn't always feel that way. Treat says oh, but he is. "I've watched you take your pain, and your chaos, and turn them into something beautiful. You've changed people's lives; you've saved people's lives, mine included. You've made peace with your past. You've opened yourself up to a woman you loved, and you bounced back with style when things didn't go your way. You've been brave, and honest, and you got a haircut, which makes the picture look even better." Treat says he's so proud of how Ephram has turned out, so no matter who he ends up with, she's going to be lucky to have him. Agreed. And agreed. Ephram says there's something wrong with this -- isn't it the guy who's about to propose who gets all the advice? Treat asks if there's anything in his teeth; Ephram says no, and Treat says he's done his duty. Ephram asks his dad if he's nervous. Treat: "You bet your ass I am." Cheesy. Awesome. Before he goes, he tells Ephram that if this all works out, he's expecting him to be the best man...and he didn't have a bachelor party the first time out, so there's a lot of pressure. He walks into the closet instead of out the door, and Ephram has to call this to his attention.
