Storyline

A week after Carla tells Eddie that she's pregnant with his child, Eddie does ask her to marry him. She's excited beyond words. She's even more excited in the fact that Eddie tells her that she no longer has to work since he can support them both. Being the two most superstitious people in the world, they have a lot of superstition obstacles to overcome. With all these superstitions to consider, they figure they have to marry in exactly eight days, or postpone the wedding until 2042. Sam plans on having a reception for them at the bar, Rebecca initially indignant that Sam does so without her authorization, until he suggests she invite her unrequited love and boss, Evan Drake, who is a sports fan, to meet famous goalie Eddie. With seemingly this last hurdle overcome, the wedding seems like it will be a blessed event, that is until Carla and Eddie inadvertently break the biggest superstition of them all: he sees her on their wedding day before the wedding. Carla thinks they're doomed. ... Written by Huggo

Strange...
29 April 2011 | by (New York, NY USA) – See all my reviews

This is Part I of a rather awkward two-part episode... This first part features Eddie proposing to the fright-faced, preggo Carla and then deals with her preparations for the wedding at Cheers.

There's a lot of filler here: it seems pretty clear that the writers were forced to stretch a one-part episode into two, and it seems odd that they chose to make this episode into a two-parter and not the season premiere "Home Is The Sailor." There was much more going on in that episode than in "Little Carla," which features multiple meaningless asides in order to pad out the running time.

After a series of bizarre omens Eddie's mother arrives and forces her son to cancel the wedding so there will be a cliff-hanger for Part Two. This was a very strange outing, and the second half doesn't get much better.
