Both parental couples are in hostile mood because the wedding is to be co-celebrated by the O'Neills' Catholic parish's priest Joseph and the gay WASPs' reverend Judy. When Mace meanly objects to any visible gayness and sarcastically suggests 'Simon and Philip' be changed to 'Simone', Maddy finds enough bad blood set between the offended gentlemen viz. her parents to actively stir an escalation of mutually offensive -such as 'upgayed'- text proposals. Meanwhile Liz has been multi-tasking beyond her abilities. She squeezes in the Wednesday appointment with father Joseph (the last drop) and accidentally empties a pitcher of martinis to quench a mouth-burn. This guarantees that she not only turns up late, but makes a sinful, irresponsible, aggressive impression on both the priest and her professor Barrista when begging for a paper extension; each time made worse by a most unfortunate observer. Finally the happy couple delivers an assumed generally approved draft at the printer.
