Weeds: A Modest Proposal

(S05E06) "I've decided that we will get married." - Esteban to Nancy
Anyone know Spanish and can translate what that gal said to Esteban at the end of this episode? Because him proposing to Nancy sure seemed like a done deal -- well, as much as a done deal could be with him giving her a faux engagement ring that turned out to be the champion ring from the soccer team he owns, and then giving her the REAL ring later.
I would have been royally ticked at that lame proposal. But Nancy seemed to go for it. And then the babe rant came along at the end and the deal's off. What the heck? Maybe he's still married?
I thought maybe I'd missed an ep or two. Nancy's so big now! And Andy's got that lame Geico caveman beard going, playing Ms. Pac Man, blowing all his dough and buying the General Lee. Does Nancy not see that Andy is the only guy for her? The only guy who can even come close to matching her wit and sarcasm?
Oh well, the way things are going, looks like they'll have another shot at love ... or whatever it is they're headed for. And I appreciated Andy's Luke Skywalker impression while fencing with Esteban.
That Ignacio's a real character, isn't he? Helping Shane skip out, then beating up a golfer. Maybe Shane's starting to get a clue that being an angry Mexican tough-guy isn't such a cool thing.
Still not feeling the Celia storyline, but whatever. I'm a little amused that she's killing her feet in high heels while working at Super Sneakers in the mall. We'll see where the "You're Pretty" storyline goes.
The highlight of this episode was definitely Doug getting spray-tanned by Isabelle and riffing off his "What would George Hamilton do?" spiel. "I need the tan. I need the deep, dark tan." And "The man slept with his stepmother when he was 12 years old. Clearly, he can do anything."
That kind of logic is hard to argue with.
