After telling his father he wanted to marry Donna, Jeb insisted that she prove herself to not simply be out for the family fortune. One day she overheard Jeb plotting to use land earmarked for a new hospital for his own development and reported this on the radio. Thinking that had ended her chance with Bill, she found he was more in love with her than ever.
