Robert decides to propose to Amy and decides to ask Amy's parents for her hand in marriage. They refuse. He also discovers that Amy's brother Peter especially hates him. Even after this, he proposes to Amy and she agrees to marry him. For Amy, he goes to her parent's house again, this time with Ray, to talk to them again. He does not succeed. When Amy comes to know about this, she tells Robert that she does not care what her parents think, and she still wants to marry him.
