A Different World
Save the Best for Last - Part 1
The day before her wedding, Whitley frets about details until Byron is able to bring her back to reality. Kim volunteers to return to campus and retrieve a special pair of earrings that Whitley had left behind. She pays Ron a visit, and frets over the realization that the wedding is probably going to take place. Ron suggests that she intervene, but Kim is hesitant. Ron surprises Kim by giving her a stethoscope, and they share a kiss. The girls enjoy a wild bachelorette party, while a depressed Dwayne walks out on Byron's bachelor party. Late that night, Kim suggests that Whitley may not be completely over Dwayne. Whitley angrily denies this. Dwayne shows up on Whitley's doorstep and asks for the chance to talk with her. They take a walk in the garden, and Dwayne apologizes for the mistakes he has made. She concedes that she placed too much pressure on him, but Dwayne insists that he simply wasn't strong enough for a commitment at the time. He recalls a time when he was a geeky freshman who couldn't get a date, and marvels at the fact that he wound up with Whitley. She thanks him for believing in her and helping her to become her own person. They tell each other, "You taught me how to love." Dwayne wonders how two people who meant so much to each other could have broken up; but stops Whitley from answering. He picks a flower for her and says, "I always knew you'd make a beautiful bride." He hops out of the garden and drives away, leaving Whitley in tears and completely confused.
