However his confession capture on video and everyone comes out to congratulate him.  Ding is in the background and hears all of this.
I'm glad that they started to focus on the main characters love line and not drag it out further.  But at this point it can be a indication that the show is going to start wrapping up considering they did say they will end at episode 200 unless they change their minds.  But with all long sitcoms they can find a way to extend it it it is popular enough even when main characters decide to exit the show in real life.
