On tonight's episode of "Downtown Girls," Nikki grew worried that she'd never get married and decided to revisit a bizarro pact she made with her platonic childhood pal, Ryan. (How very "My Best Friend's Wedding" of her!) To test-drive their compatibility (their agreement stated that if no one better came along when they turned 35, they'd give up the quest for true love and marry each other ... gee, how romantic), Nikki tried to ignite a spark between them over a makeshift candlelit dinner. She soon realized that dry chicken and a lifeless flame wouldn't do the trick, but she still wasn't ready to give up -- perhaps shopping for engagement rings would get her in the mood? (Nope, not that either.)
