Fran references Salisbury steak when meeting the fictional Duke of Salisbury. Salisbury steak was actually invented by Dr. J. H.

A Roman Catholic priest is shown officiating the wedding ceremony between Jocelyn and the fictional Duke of Salisbury. In the real world, the Catholic Church requires six months or more of classes, known as Pre-Cana, before celebrating a marriage. Catholic clergy would be very unlikely to celebrate the Sacrament of Matrimony with only a few days notice, and would definitely not celebrate it with a groom chosen minutes beforehand. The ceremony as shown would likely require several dispensations directly from the Cardinal Archbishop of New York. See more »


Chastity Claire 'C.C.' Babcock: [to Maxwell lovingly, to get him in a romantic mood] I don't know why, I just love weddings.
Niles: We all love what we can't have.
