Eddie and Carla's wedding is off because Mama LeBec doesn't approve of her intended daughter-in-law. Eddie can't go against Mama, and Carla is pissed off at Eddie for not doing so. But the person who seems most upset is Rebecca because it will look badly upon her if Evan Drake, her boss and unrequited love, shows up to a wedding reception with no bride and groom. Sam assures Rebecca he can get the wedding back on track so that the reception will happen, but will do so only on the condition that they lose the uniforms. Rebecca reluctantly agrees. Sam does a juggling act, maneuvering all the players back into place, hoping to convince Eddie that he loves Carla, and hoping to make Carla forget about being mad at Eddie. Those are not the only obstacles, another being the church backlog and the need to get married by 4:00 for their superstitious planets to be in alignment. At the end of the day, Carla receives what she believes is a sign regarding whether their superstitions are the cause ... Written by Huggo

Eddie LeBec: [about Carla] I can't face her right now. I mean if I did change my mind and decide to stand up to Mama, Carla would never forgive me for the way I ran out. I mean, if I went there right now, she'd tear my head off.
Norm Peterson: Oh wait, come on Eddie, I think you're underestimating Carla just a bit here.
Eddie LeBec: What, you don't think she'd be mad?
Norm Peterson: No, I don't think she'd stop at your head.

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

Part II of a dreadful two-parter... I've seen this episode 37 times and I still can't tell you why Eddie suddenly stops caring about his Mother's objections. Did she die between episodes? Did Eddie have her whacked?

Carla, furious and violent over the wedding cancellation, holes up in Rebecca's office and expresses her rage by breaking pencils. Yeah, pretty lame. And Sam fixes the entire relationship by getting Carla to try on her maternity/wedding gown. But what's really bizarre about this episode is the actual wedding: it's filmed in a church rectory crowded with extras, and we don't see the faces of the bride, groom or any of the other leads supposedly in attendance... we just hear them speaking in unfunny voice-overs. It's a very unusual choice for master of comedy direction James Burrows and, simply put, it doesn't work.

The reception at the bar features a Master of Ceremonies who announces everything that the writers couldn't explain: "Let's all throw some rice, the symbol of fertility..." The best part of this episode is the drunken Rebecca, and her funniest moment is the look on her face after she hears Carla's daughter-in-law say: "Darling, you're married now. You don't have a lap."

Eddie loses his job as goalie and Carla returns to work at Cheers, married for some reason. I want my hour back.
