...Treat is looking at the bare spot on his dresser where the ring used to be. There is also about an inch of dust around the spot where the ring was sitting, which means that either Everwood has a major dust problem, or Treat needs to fire his maid.
Ephram and Stephergie are shopping for Delia's present in a jewelry store. Ephram says they need to hurry up and get out of there, because he's breaking out in hives. Steph: "Oh, you don't need to pretend with me, Ephram. I know you read Lucky." A man after my own heart. I bet he uses the little stickers, too. His phone rings, and of course it's Treat, freaking out about the ring. Ephram calmly says he probably just misplaced it, and he'll help him look for it when he gets home. Did you ever think this day would come, when Treat and Ephram would get along so well? Yeah, neither did I, and now it's over FOREVER. Just a friendly reminder. Ephram tells Stephergie that Treat is losing his mind. Stephergie says she loves his dad -- he's nice, and he's funny. Aw, see? Ephram: "Promise me right now you will never tell him you think he's funny. Trust me, it's for your own good; he'll start testing out material on you." Ha! Stephergie tells him that his house is a lot better than most people's, and plus it's got really great snacks. Ephram can't believe she's blatantly using him like this for pudding. He gives her a little smile, and says he can't believe he hasn't done or said anything stupid yet, like accidentally tripped her. Stephergie says she has something really, really bad to tell him, then kisses him and says, "I think you're great. And don't worry about tripping me. I've got excellent balance." Lord. I want to hate her so much, but I can't, and it's making me really uncomfortable.
