So apparently this week's episode is supposed to be based on the holiday movie "Love Actually;" thus, the title. But, seeing as how I've never seen it from beginning to end and I don't remember exactly what happens, I can't quite reference the similarities. So you'll have to forgive me. Or find another recap.
