Storyline

Rhoda invites Mary to accompany her for an exciting weekend in New York City to attend the wedding of Rhoda's younger sister, Debbie Morgenstern. The weekend doesn't end up being quite what Mary expected when she agreed to go. Instead of staying at a hotel, Mary is invited to stay with Rhoda's parents. And as the impartial third party, Mary ends up being the mediator between Rhoda and Ida in what is the major issue of the weekend. As Debbie is her younger daughter, Ida believes that Rhoda is unhappy being the proverbial old maid. So Ida does whatever she can to ruin Debbie's wedding to make Rhoda happy. Rhoda, in turn, is happy for her sister and does whatever she can to leave before the wedding so that Ida won't ruin Debbie's wedding. The cycle between mother and oldest daughter goes full circle when Ida believes Rhoda's want to leave is because of her unhappiness in Debbie getting married first, which strengthens Ida's resolve to ruin Debbie's wedding.

This episode is about Mary and Rhoda traveling to NYC for the wedding of Rhoda's only and younger sister. The writers obviously forgot that in Season one, Rhoda tells Mary that her sister had married.
