"A Modest Proposal" (CONTENT RATING TBD) (HDTV)
Tom and Jessie announce their engagement - When an escalating game of truth-or-dare gets out of hand, 18-year-old Tom Bellow (Michael Seater) spontaneously proposes to Jessie Hill (Stacey Farber), the girl next door. Little does he realize Jessie's up for the challenge, and the two are suddenly engaged. Though Jessie's family seems disinterested, Tom's is another story. Using every arsenal at their disposal, Ben (Peter Keleghan) and Judith Bellow (Ellen David) try to reverse their son's insane decision. But their efforts backfire disastrously by driving the newlyweds closer. When Jessie's father exposes his own laid-back attitude towards the marriage as a front, the four parents form a reluctant alliance, pretending to throw their full support behind the wedding in the hopes that it will frighten the kids into calling the engagement off. But Tom and Jessie catch on to their plan and spin it to their advantage. Trouble is, with no parental barriers, the young lovers begin to have second thoughts. Al Goulem, Angela Asher, Jesse Rath, Tiio Horn, Arielle Shiri, Erin Agostino and Carl Alacchi also star. Written by Derek Schreyer (#101).
