For Whom The Wedding Bells Toll, Part 2
Jack and Joanne had been commuting between Odyssey and Chicago all summer, and in July, Jack began thinking about starting his own business in Odyssey. Jack shows the Antique Emporium, which he is thinking of buying, to Joanne, then takes her out to dinner and asks her to marry him. Joanne agrees, but she is planning a two-month mission trip to the Philippines, so they will have to marry right away.
Eugene receives an award from the college when he helps Fred Holstein by creating a computer program to help with inventory. At the reception, he is shocked to see Katrina, who is working at the bookshop and as a nanny for Hans Holstein, Mr. Holstein's grandson, for the summer. He is flustered because he is unsure how he should relate to her. A romantic afternoon at Trickle Lake is broken when Katrina gets hit in the mouth with a football thrown by Hans. Eugene takes loving care of her after she gets four stitches in her mouth, prompting her to ask him to marry her!
- This plot section is too short and should be expanded. »
- Why was Eugene so worried when Katrina suddenly showed up?
- Who do you think will get married?

VERSION DIFFERENCE: [view] The album version added a number of conversations and scenes to this show, including the following:
- Bernard and Jack talk about antiques in the antique shop (such as a Hitchcock rocker) before Mr. Gumley comes in. Hitchcock rockers are referenced by Joanne later in #532: “Pink Is Not My Color”.
- Holstein gives a longer list of the types of books at his shop.
- There are more lines at the drive-thru concerning Jason's confusion about the Maxi Deluxe.
- There is a scene with the dentist as Katrina is getting stitches and Connie explains the broken tooth to Jason.
- There is a scene Jason pays for the meal.
- The title for these episodes comes from the line "for whom the bell tolls" from John Donne's 1624 work Devotions upon Emergent Occasions. This line would in turn lend its name to the title of a novel by Ernest Hemingway.
- Eugene references the events of #362 – #363: “The Right Choice” in this episode.
