Meanwhile, Mike gives Carol some weird, random ramblings about what married life and her future will be like with Bobby. Carol brushes him off ... but in the end, after Bobby and Carol walk out on their parents, Mike's take on the situation all begins to make sense to Carol. The two begin talking and both she and Bobby realize that they are too young to get married.
