At the synagogue, people are starting to arrive for the wedding. Mary and Lucy and Ruthie are just standing around in their bridesmaids' dresses, looking dorky. I've certainly seen worse bridesmaids' dresses, but these are no prize. They look kind of like black-and-white sausage casings with spaghetti straps. And here come Buffalo's Boring Brother Beaus. With nowhere to hide and no doors to slam in the guys' faces, Mary and Lucy have to talk to the brothers.
Mary tells Ben that she doesn't want to get married, and he echoes the sentiment. For once, Mary displays some common sense, as she asks him why he proposed to her, then. He says he did it because he didn't want to lose her. Ah, so romantic! I remember when my childhood friend was experiencing difficulties with her boyfriend. They decided that all their problems would be solved by getting married. When marriage didn't magically repair anything, and they started cheating on each other, they decided that all their problems would be solved by having a child. Of course, they're long divorced by now. Sorry, where was I? It's so easy to get sidetracked when Mary and Ben's problems are so damn boring. Mary is telling Ben that he won't lose her unless he makes her give up her job. She's got some wacky idea that, because she's a flight attendant and he's a firefighter, one of them will have to give up their job. Yeah, that didn't make much sense to me either, but look at the source. When Ben tells her that he'll never ask her to give up her job, Mary hugs him and asks if she can wear his class ring. Aw, they're going steady! He slides the ring onto the ring finger of her right hand, just so there will be no misunderstanding about them not being engaged. The ring fits Mary perfectly, which makes me wonder just how dainty Ben's fingers must be.
Mercifully, we're spared Lucy's explanation to Kevin of how she picked up that creepy airport psycho dude. Really, it shouldn't come as any surprise to Kevin that Lucy likes to pick up guys at the airport, considering how he met her. Unfortunately, we're not spared Kevin's protestations of his desire to spend the rest of his life with Lucy. He has, however, decided to cancel his transfer to Glenoak and take things a little slower with Lucy. Hee hee! His work transfer! That still kills me. Officer Kevin teases Lucy by asking if that creepy airport psycho dude is at the wedding. When Lucy says he is not, Kevin says, "Good, because I brought my gun, and I'd hate to have to use it." Lucy takes about half an hour to realize that he's joking. Considering how unfunny it is to joke about shooting people, I guess I can understand.
