“Marry Me” Season 1 Episode 3 “Scary Me” aired on Tuesday, Oct. 28, 2014, at 9:00 p.m. on NBC. The gang was all excited for Halloween. Annie, Ken and Dennah were all looking forward to going to this annual rave party, while Gil and Kay planned to go trick or treating elsewhere. Read on for the recap below.
The episode opened with the five friends huddled in Annie’s (Casey Wilson) kitchen, when Gil (John Gemberling) declared that this was his first Halloween as a single person after ten years. He thought he’d join Kay (Tymberlee Hill) wherever she planned on going trick or treating. Dennah (Sarah Wright), meanwhile, declared that after going as a slutty nurse and a slutty judge in the previous years, she’s going to be dressing up as just a slut this year.
Just then, Julie, Annie’s neighbor, knocked on her door to let them know about the upcoming meeting to discuss the “do’s and don’ts” of this year’s Halloween celebration. Julie was tasked to monitor the on-goings in the building for that night. Not that she would expect Annie and Jake (Ken Marino) to participate since they’re not exactly parents, even as Julie insisted that she and Annie are of the same age, but it was important to let all the tenants know that there were guidelines set in place. Julie was this type-A personality soccer mom whom Annie didn’t particularly like.
Annie and Jake have yet to receive their invitation for the rave party. When they realized that they didn’t have it, Annie convinced Jake that they ditch the rave and start their own Halloween party in the building.
And so, they went to the meeting conducted by Julie, who was surprised to see them there. When the couple suggested that they would be making a haunted house in their unit, Julie was appalled and enumerated the different hazards that could threaten the kids’ safety. How could Annie not know? Oh, right. She’s not a mom like her.
But instead of feeling down by Julie’s comments, Annie took this as a challenge and vowed to make their apartment the most fun place for kids at Halloween.
The night came, and Jake and Annie were all set. Their place was perfectly decorated, and they were wearing awesome Halloween costumes. The kids that came trick or treating at their house loved what they did. But by 9:00 p.m., the party had to be called off, as they needed to follow Julie’s time schedule. The important thing was, the kids did have a great time courtesy of Annie and Jake.
As the two winded down, ready to get intimate, they discovered that a child was lurking in their bedroom. He didn’t want to leave and even lied about where he actually lived. Until Annie took care of the situation and made sure that they safely brought him back to his house.
Well, guess what? The child was actually Julie’s son, who told his mom that Annie and Jake had a really fun Halloween haunted house. Realizing that Annie was actually a good neighbor, the two awkwardly made up.
Jake (to Annie): You are just like Oprah. You don’t have any kids of your own, but you tell everyone what to do with theirs.
Meantime, Dennah was at the rave party wearing this really slutty costume. Unfortunately, she wasn’t having a great time there, and worse, two other girls were wearing the same thing! Even worse, her ex-boyfriend was there too, and she never knew that he was actually gay!
Gil and Kay, on the other hand, were going trick or treating on this street that Gil suggested, which turned out to be super boring. There was even a house there that did not know it was Halloween. Why did Gil pick this? The truth was, this was the street where his ex-wife lives, and he only wanted to make sure that she wasn’t sad this holiday. Well, she wasn’t. She was having a party at her house, which made Gil sad.
As they were still unrecognizable in their costumes, he asked Kay to take away the Halloween bowl that his ex-wife was using. But while Kay grabbed it hard, his ex-wife exclaimed that Kay could take all the candy, but keep the bowl as it was from her husband. This statement empowered Gil to tackle Kay so she’d let go of the ball. Even after the divorce and all the complaints that his wife nagged him endlessly, it was still good for Gil to know that he meant something to his wife.
