After watching this again, I like it more than I remembered. Some of the flirting and give and take is already here (credit to M. Petryni?) Since Caron had written for uh, that other show (can't recall name) this ep has a bit of that show's feel. Though seeing the other couple in that alley bar scene is quite a stretch.
Sheesh! I wanted to comment of Maddie's crown; it's gorgeous! After looking at that season 5 rat nest, I am a happier man. I mean look at Madsen's "do" in "When Girls Collide" then compare that tangled mess Maddie was carrying around... No wonder Dave fell; we *are* weak about such things.
