Eighteen year old Serafina, Carla's daughter, announces that she is pregnant and wants to marry the father, a retired police officer living off disability who she loves. After discussing the issue, Carla gives Serafina her blessing and her financial support for the wedding. With her connection to Hill, Carla manages to arrange for the ceremony at Melville's - she's afraid of the bad wedding karma history at Cheers - and the reception at Cheers. Despite Carla's meticulous planning to avoid any problems, a last minute Star Trek (1966) theme and some surprise guests may ruin the day for Carla. Written by Huggo

Loathe and Marriage (#11.15)
7 July 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Carla's daughter Serafina got pregnant and is going to marry the father of the child. After first being skeptical Carla gets excited about the wedding.But then she gets upset because Nick comes and she doesn't feel he deserves to be at the wedding as he never was there for his kids and she took care of them herself. But then she realizes how important it to Serafina to have her dad as the wedding.

It is not a bad episode but doesn't have any really outstanding jokes and moments. The whole side joke about the orangutangs was kind of stupid. But I laughed at the scene when Serafina tells Carla about being pregnant. Seems to be something that just had to happen in Carla's family.
