Callie asks him to look after their daughter but he’s got plans of his own, so she tries to pawn babysitting duties off on the other docs.

Question: You mentioned a while back that the upcoming Glee episode titled “The Proposal” would be a big one for Will and Emma. Any particular reason why? —Radames
Ausiello: Um, because he proposes to her in it? [Cue eye roll, heavy sigh and finger gun to head.] And it’s not just any proposal.
