diane, Wonderful job! Loved the music you chose (especially "Blessed"--whoo boy, that one's a five-hankie job!), the poker scene was so funny, and the announcement...what a wonderful way to demonstrate the growth in David's character and in his relationship with Maddie.
"Don't say those things." "Why? Because they embarrass you?" "No, because they excite me."
Ive read it 3 times already! LOL WOW this was just so perfect for M&D & thier friends & family! These type episodes always have been such treats! My fave full cast one yet! I was so moved by how much love i can feel coming from M&D & I can see it all in my mind so clearly! Diane you truly love them so much & its shows in your writing ! David speech was truly brilliant! Thank you for letting D&M take this journey together ,we lost out on so much on the show but its alive here becasue of you all! Thanks!
I totally agree with you, Rose! I'm a slow reader and I know I will keep reading every episode over and over again to enjoy more these lovely episodes. David and Maddie are vividly alive in the Virtual Moonlighting World! Thank you very much to the writers!
I think I've spent way too much time in the last nine years hem-hawing around. Sometimes a man just has to make a decision and go with it.

I was thinking to myself as I read this one, that I'm falling in love with David all over again. So I guess your "love letter to David Addison" is working on me, Diane. Needless to say, I LOVED it (notice a theme here?), and I'll be reading it over again and again too.
I have soaked myself in this very happy episode for several dayscand thought finally they got to this point I waited for longcit is impressive.
All the people I felt sympathy in the show gathered together, which is very pleasant. And especially I love David and his fatherfs story. They talk heart to heart and when David Sr. helps his son in the gambling room, he is funny and confident, yes he is definitely his father!
Davidfs speech is beautiful and touching. It occurred to me how long he (and Maddie) have come to meet this dayc he just wanted to be with her in the early episodes, and things are growing little by little for years (S. 6 to S. 8). But I believe itfs because there has always been David really trying in this term and hefs never let her go even when he was hurtcThe way he lives in his life is fascinating! And I am very happy for him to see truly happy David in this episode!
And this is just my feeling, but somehow I remembered that Maddie had said to David she envied a civilized couple while dancing together in WGC. I thought they achieved becoming a civilized couple by having a great party and opening their relationship to their relatives and friends. However I have realized that I donft like to think it is exactly the same as what she felt at that time, I mean there are more than that in their relationship now, both characters are deepened faithfully and they are entering on a new phase in their lives. This is very exciting!
Thank you for such a sweet episode, Diane! I had a fun time again!
I forgot to ask, Does the title "Relatively Speaking" link to "Anyone can be a father,... " ? And is it a playing word?
