I'll grab Lily and Neil.
They're engaged to be married.
Neil wants a prenup. Lily thinks it will jinx their relationship.
He tells her it's like getting auto insurance and you get that to be safe, not because you're going to have an accident. Lily tells him, "Well that's a terrible metaphor because I'm a bad driver. I don't need insurance on my relationships because I'm excellent at love."
Turns out, as Roxanne discovers, it's also got some stuff to do with the fact that she's not been completely upfront.
Roxanne: What are you doing?
Roxanne: I know for a fact that you have 7 grand in credit card debt.
Lily: Oh, yeah, well there's some things about me Neil doesn't know. Maybe a little mystery is good. Like he doesn't know that I'm five foot three or that I dabbled in Scientology.
Roxanne: What? Okay when do you plan on telling him all of this?
Lily: Once we're married, none of that stuff is going to matter. He'll be less judgmental and I'll be pregnant.
I laughed so hard at that. Cedric and I did not have a prenup. But he was surprised, after we married, when he found out how much student loan debt I had. I didn't tell him. Why would I? I'd paid off over two-thirds of it before we met and was going to pay off the rest. I assumed he would have some debts as well -- credit cards, or car loans or whatever.
Some people take that very seriously. (Like Neil and, turns out, like Cedric.) So I really identified with Lily's "once we're married none of that stuff is going to matter."
She and Neil have a big argument which includes Lily saying she's tired of having to pretend to be something she's not. She blurts out, "I voted for Nader!"
I know this season has to end with them getting married so I'm not going to worry about their fight.
