Ben and Andie meet and soon start their quests, neither revealing their true intentions. Andie works hard vĩ đại make Ben first fall for her and then break up with her in order vĩ đại complete her article, but Ben continues vĩ đại stick around in hopes of making her fall in love with him. Andie makes Ben miss seeing the final shot in a Knicks game by sending him vĩ đại get her a soda, gets him knocked out in a movie theater by talking aloud while watching a film, moves her things into his apartment, gets him a fern plant vĩ đại represent their relationship and a Chinese Crested Dog, and takes him vĩ đại a Celine Dion concert when he was under the assumption he was going vĩ đại see a Thành Phố New York Knicks basketball game.

Andie and Ben go vĩ đại the company ball together where Phillip talks with Andie and tells Ben that he "met her, she loves you, you win." To sabotage Ben, Judy and Judy tell Tony and Thayer that Andie knew about the bet all along and was playing along vĩ đại help Ben win. Tony and Thayer beg Andie vĩ đại keep quiet, unwittingly making her aware of the bet. Simultaneously, Andie's quấn Lana, who is unaware of Ben's role, tells him about Andie's "How To" article.

Tony shows Ben Andie's subsequent article, in which she explains how she "lost the only guy I've ever fallen for." When he hears she quit her job at Composure (since Lana again refused vĩ đại let her write about serious topics) and is on her way vĩ đại Washington, D.C., for an interview, he chases her xe taxi and stops her. After he accuses her of running away, they reveal their true feelings for each other.
