When we come back, Harrison tells some lies about how everyone was dying to know what was in the letter Sean received, but never mentions what a total letdown the reality was. Sean says he thought he might be left at the altar, and it took him two paragraphs to figure out she wasn't -- his reading comprehension skills are apparently, and unsurprisingly, terrible.
And the proposal itself -- oh god, they're playing it again. Because Sean and Catherine haven't SEEN it. You'd think the fact THEY WERE THERE is enough, but since there's not enough show to fill two hours every week, let alone three, we sit through it again. Harrison then asks what it's like to watch it again, and what it's like to watch each other watch it again.
And then Sean complains about how she didn't even look at the ring, and tries to pretend that she doesn't care about this kind of thing, despite the fact that basically the FIRST THING he said when he came out tonight was talk about how she finally gets to show off her massive rock.
As for the massive news? Well, Sean explains that although they don't have a date for the wedding, they've decided that since their relationship developed on television, it's fitting that their wedding should also be on television, and ABC will "cover" it. So the news that they just learned in the past twenty-four hours is that the contract has been finalized? That's unbelievably weak. I mean, obviously Sean and Catherine don't just DECIDE that their wedding will be on ABC, but Harrison insists on pretending this is a big surprise. Then there is some "what decade is this " queasiness with Catherine proclaiming she just wants to be Sean's wife, and Sean saying if it were up to him they'd just go down to the courthouse but a wedding is, after all, all about the woman. Harrison says he's actually ordained, so they can do it right now if they want. That, however, wouldn't drag their fifteen minutes out long enough, so of course they won't be doing that.
