Aunt Belle advises Mary to become more social, but she is awkward and doesn’t fit in. Mary tries one more time at the annual dinner and nearly runs away when criticised by Winnie, but Kevin urges her to stand up for herself. She does, Kevin kisses her, and everything is all right from that point onward.
