After Beth gets a little boozy and takes a coin from the city’s fabled fountain of love, she gets more suitors than she bargained for — and her future with McHottie is doomed. Will she ever reunite with the man of her dreams? Let’s hope so, because the group of would-be BFs are too annoying to bear for long. (Kristen Bell [Beth], Josh Duhamel [Nick])
