A Fine Mess is the 4th episode of Season 10 on FOX drama soap Beverly Hills, 90210.

Synopsis Edit

RELATIONSHIPS ARE TESTED – The gang tries to convince Steve and Janet to get married, but both are initially reluctant, leading the rest to assess their own relationships. Meanwhile, David begins to adopt a "bad boy" attitude on the radio to prove to the listeners that nice guys do finish last.


Steve buys an engagement ring and practices proposals, often with Noah assuming the role of Janet. Dylan harasses Janet about her decision. The gang's attempt to arrange a reconciliation backfires. Janet insists that she loves Steve, but believes that his chaotic lifestyle would be harmful to the child. Steve later breaks down in tears and argues that his spontaneity does not mean that he cannot be a responsible husband and father. He surprises Janet with a proposal during her ultrasound, and she accepts.

Dylan grows tired of living with Gina and suggests that she find her own place. He offers to spring for a hotel suite, but Gina opts to establish her independence. David's radio show becomes popular due to his abrasive tactics, including talking about Dylan's personal life and asking a woman out while on the air. Dylan goads David into providing details of the date to his listeners, and the woman dumps him. Donna recommends a new act for the club, failing to disclose the fact that the singer is Wayne's cousin. Noah is angry, but he and Donna soon get back together yet again. Kelly pouts about Matt's cynical attitude toward marriage and commitment.
