"I just thought that would be us," Arthur pointed out. "I thought we were only waiting until things with your dad calmed down."

Marshall angrily insisted: "I'm going with Cathy and I don't care what you think!"

Marshall then stormed off, leaving Arthur hurt and confused over where he stands with his love interest. Will Marshall go through with this date?
