Ida wants a larger wedding than Rhoda has planned, and takes steps to ensure she gets what she wants without Rhoda being able to do anything about it. Regardless of whether Rhoda or Ida gets her way on this item, the wedding may end up being just slightly larger than Rhoda planned if only because beyond Mary and Georgette being invited and coming in from Minneapolis for the festivities, three additional people decide to come from Minneapolis as well: Lou, Murray and Phyllis.

Great story and heartfelt humor
27 April 2013 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

For years, throughout the MTM show, Rhoda's marriage was anticipated, but never did I expect to actually see it happen. And it happens in true Valerie Harper fashion: nothing goes right but she still never loses her smile or courage, as in real life.

What makes this episode (1&2) so memorable for me is Rhoda's will and determination to make it work, to see all the old cast together with her, and especially the seeming spontaneity of reaction by all. It is heartfelt, feels sincere and genuine in their all wanting her to marry Joe.

This is for me the ultimate TV episode, with scenes both inside and outside not distracting, the dry humor, "One guy tried to write graffiti on my dress", and the way Cloris Leatchman tries to get sympathy from the crowd, all unforgettable.
