A little later on, a slow pan across the TCs as they return to the boys from their final commercial break. As soon as they sign off and the first "good show"s start flying, Dana hustles onto the set with a pasted-on smile and apologizes to Casey. He doesn't really look upset, and motions with his head that they should talk elsewhere. As she follows him, she asks what he's doing. He says he's going somewhere more private. She asks him what that thing was he did with his head. He explains that he was indicating that they should go someplace more private, in much the same way you might explain something to an alien that has taken human form so she can walk among us and study our ways. She tells him not to do the thing with his head again, like, what is her problem here? Oh, I guess her confusion over his head motion is just to lead up to him asking her if she's going to suspend him for a week for that too. Dana stops him and apologizes for pulling out such a big gun. Casey then apologizes for testing her authority and tells her she's the boss. He thinks they're done, and the word "sorry" is getting quite a workout here, but she apologizes for ditching the show that night and admits that Casey was right for being mad, and that if Casey had done the same thing to her she'd have felt abandoned. Casey tries to tell her it isn't that big a deal, that he was just surprised, but Dana interrupts him to reveal that Gordon's going to ask her to marry him. Speaking of surprise. You know, I've never proposed, but doesn't telling someone you're "going to ask" them to marry you amount to a proposal? And kind of take the romance out of it? Anyway, Gordon's in Washington and told her on the phone that he's going to propose to her when he gets back. Why would he spoil the surprise over the phone? I'm guessing guilt. I'm guessing Gordon was feeling bad about the string of D.C. hookers strolling through his hotel room and figures marrying Dana will settle him down, not unlike Judd Nelson in St. Elmo's Fire. Smiling, Casey asks what she's going to say. Slight hesitation for Dana, but then she says, "What, are you kidding? I'm going to say yes!" The two of them then just stand there grinning at each other.
A pensive Natalie sits at a desk in the newsroom. When Jeremy wanders up, she tells him Gordon's going to ask Dana to marry him. Jeremy looks as thrilled as he did when he figured out Rebecca was going to dump Dan. He asks how she knows, and Natalie makes a sarcastic comment about how she has "special powers" and then says Dana told her. Then Natalie says she thinks Dana just told Casey. "Oh," says Jeremy, nonplussed. Then we witness the reconciliation of Jeremy and Natalie, as he decrees that they are now back together, much to her relief, and she tells him that he should kiss her now. He's about to, but then he breaks the news about Rebecca going back to her husband instead. Natalie asks where Dan is, and behind them, from Dan and Casey's office, we hear Dan yell, "I'm right here." Jeremy and Natalie turn toward the office doorway.
