Sophia's Wedding: Part 1 (#4.6)
23 January 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Sophia's best friend died and she is hesitant about going to the funeral because she is mad at her husband who gambled their mutual business money away. But at the funeral he confesses that it was her husband who did it and he just covered for him. Soon Dorothy finds the two of them in bed together and they want to get married but Dorothy doesn't want to approve.

Many cute Sophia moments in this episode. Her being caught in bed with the guy was a fun scene. And the wedding was beautiful too, especially with all those Elvises. Dorothy was pretty fun too in the Elvis club as she got kicked out.
