It's the eve of the wedding between Dopey and his, well, wife, and Rabbi Richard is regaling them with one of his special slow-as-molasses speeches. As Richard struggles to make it through more than one sentence, I can't help but suspect that this speech will last longer than the marriage itself. RevCam is there too, and he thanks Richard for including him in the wedding ceremony. It seems he's spoken too soon, though, since as Rabbi Richard slowly, painfully outlines the order of the ceremony, RevCam realizes that he has been given nothing to do. When he questions Richard about that, the rabbi replies that RevCam will be holding a candle that's part of the ceremony. Eric does not look thrilled, even when Richard half-sarcastically tries to sell the candle as being not only "beautiful" but "handmade" as well. RevCam looks like he'd like to protest some more, but he's silenced by a look from his greasy-headed son.
The Opening Credits Timewaster takes us back to Rabbi Richard's office, though by this point, RevCam and the happy couple have left. Richard is using his alone time for reading. As some vaguely middle eastern music tinkles offensively away in the background, Richard picks up a book called Jewish History and Thought: An Introduction. You'd think he would be past the "introduction" stage -- you know, since he's already a rabbi and all -- but no. And evidently, Richard finds even this book too challenging, so instead he picks up a book on baseball. He's interrupted by the arrival of his daughter, who insists that he give Eric more responsibilities in the wedding ceremony. Richard gets in a pretty good dig when he says, "This isn't a good sign, Matt having you fight his father's battles for him." He follows that up by questioning whether Plot Contrivance really intends to go through with this wedding. She sarcastically replies that it's all a joke, adding, "Matt and I are just big practical jokers, and we thought we'd have fun tormenting our families for three months." Actually, isn't that pretty much what they have been doing for three months? I mean, they're married already, so is there really any reason to put their families through this farce of a wedding in the first place? PC accuses her father of trying to scuttle the wedding plans, and then demands that he give RevCam something more to do in the ceremony. Richard reluctantly agrees.
Mary is in Buffalo, getting ready for work, when Ben decides to come calling. He wants to know why she's been avoiding him all week. Normally, I'd assume that people avoid him because he's boring and not very bright, but then, the same could be said of Mary, so that's probably not the reason here. Actually, it doesn't seem like any of the writers have bothered giving Mary a motivation. Last time we saw her with Ben, she was making out like crazy in the CamPound living room, and now she tells him that she's been busy and that her schedule doesn't mesh with his? Whatever. It seems she hasn't even bothered to tell him that he's not her date for Dopey's wedding anymore, yet when he asks her if she's breaking up with him, she stalls and says she'll talk to him later. Run, Ben, run! In a few weeks, I guarantee you'll realize just how lucky you are to have dodged the "spending the future with Mary" bullet.
