However, after Steve and his girlfriend Melanie (Valerie Azlynn) discovered that his grandfather had won the bar from her grandfather in a card game, Melanie decided she was owed half.
Desperate to get her back, Steve faked a marriage proposal. Playing -- and beating -- him at his own game, Melanie accepted: "Yes, I’ll marry you!" she cried.
Eventually Steve had to admit he wanted to back out of the phoney engagement. As a triumphant Melanie put it, "Fifty years ago, your grandfather outplayed my grandfather ... and 50 years later, I outplayed you."
