Cut to Lauren and Lo lunching. Lo asks if Lauren thinks that firing Steph will affect their friendship. Lauren cringes that Steph cried... in front of the whole office. She says, with absolutely no self-awareness, "I don't know if I've ever made somebody cry before." Yeah, you've never made anybody cry... Lauren says she feels like she just told Steph that her boyfriend was cheating on her. Ironically, in a way, she did just break that news to whoever is living with that ugly guitarist... Lo reminds Lauren that, despite the Cutrone-induced torture initiation, Steph did contribute a lot to the coffers. Lauren checks another item off of her list of things to do before she can leave the show.
That night, Spencer shuffles Heidi onto a totally uncontrived ferris wheel ride, despite her proclaimed fear of heights, saying "I'm trying to be romantic, dear." They way he says "dear" is full of menace, just like how A-hole says "honey!" At any rate, Spencer "knows people" and has hooked it up so that the wheel stops at the top for his grandiose millionth proposal. You see, this scheme is brilliant in its simplicity: Step 1: Terrify Heidi; Step 2: Propose; Step 3: Tell her that you won't come down until she says yes; Step 4: Happily ever after!
So Spencer makes his pitch, telling Heidi he secured Wild Bill's approval and asking her if she's game to "try the whole 'marriage' thing again." Awesomely, she tells him that marriage only effs up their relationship. He claims that marriage will somehow magically strengthen their relationship. Yes, marriage as Super Glue -- binding you together because there's no other choice. Just as God intended! Heidi says that many steps must be taken before they get married. Namely, making things right with Darlene and Lauren, not to mention arranging the big blow-out she's been talking about since their first fake beach engagement. BTW, one of the above things does not belong with the others. Why is Lauren Conrad a factor in Speidi's dream wedding?
