Plot Synopsis

Valentine's Day is full of surprises. Grace tries to ignore the greeting card holiday but romantic urges eventually send her into the arms of the enemy — none other than Nick, a hunky greeting card writer. In a dramatic change of events, Karen's former nemesis Scott Woolley tries to win her heart by showering her with gifts but Karen's eyes are on larger things — her new overweight Internet date. Elsewhere, after dancing with a lesbian couple Will and Jack find comfort in each other's arms for the Valentine's Day spotlight dance.
