The Gaines family has recruited Sam and crew to provide liquor and bartending services at the wedding, and as we'd expect, everything goes wrong. Woody is randy for Kelly, while the rest of the gang learns Mr. Gaines would gladly have Woody killed if he learned Woody and Kelly had premarital relations; Kelly tears her dress, and it's seamstress Cliff to the rescue; and the minister has a heart attack and dies in the kitchen, leading the gang to try and keep the dead body hidden in the dumbwaiter and to recruit a last-minute replacement, a completely wasted member of the Gaines family who we learn, after the gang sobers him up, that he hates weddings, leading them to re-inebriate him. And outside the kitchen in the courtyard, the family Dobermans attack everyone who tries to walk past. Written by meebly

When Rebecca takes over decorating the wedding cake, the professionalism of her cake decoration changes between shots and scenes. In some shots, the white frosting is just tossed on haphazardly. In others, little green and pink flowers decorate the top layer of the cake. See more »

This episode revolves around goings on at the site of Woody's and Kelly's wedding. It starts with Carla doing an astrology chart for the and determining that this day is a bad for the wedding. And as the episode unfolds. Even none believers will begin to agree with her interpretation. More things than any one person could imagine go wrong and have to be dealt with. And as usual, it's not just the things that are going wrong that add to the humor. The attempts to deal with the problems are many times funnier than the problems themselves. Watch for some issues with the dumb waiter that will have you in stitches. A lot of shows don't have this many gags, jokes and stunts in a season. Everyone involved with the show threw all they had at this episode. And the results are hilarious. It's been carefully crafted to keep you laughing through the whole hour. This cast was proved over the previous 10 years and this was a great season ender. In fact the high quality this episode calls into question the decision to the end series and the end of next season. Everyone involved were in top form. I saw this episode when it was first offered. And catching it again nearly twenty years later was a pure delight.
