Shelayna's boss, Richard, holds up a plastic glass of champagne to make a toast. And I quote: "Shelayna, you know we love you. And you keep trying to convince us that this is what you want, so we are trying to figure out a way... [blah blah blah mumble mumble] May this be the best marriage you ever had. And..." At this point, Shelayna, obviously uncomfortable, chimes in, "And the only one!" She seems a little bit surprised, and I certainly don't blame her, and Richard clinks his plastic cup against hers. I don't even know what cracks to make about this. But dude, no one asked you to throw a party -- if you feel strongly enough to humiliate the couple in front of everyone else, then you should have just brought a cake into the breakroom the day before she took time off like every other company in America. To their credit, the co-workers seem kind of uncomfortable too. Working for this company must be a barrel of laughs. Bart actually acts like a gentleman and sincerely thanks everyone for the party, rather than punching Richard in the nose. Of course he then quickly makes a bad joke as well, once again lessening my good will. Everyone packs up to leave and Shelayna starts griping at him again about being late and making crass jokes, but she also has obviously dealt with both of these things numerous times before.
One week before Angela's wedding, she and John are working on the seating chart. They both look stressed but not unduly so, as this is probably one of the least fun tasks of any wedding. She says it's a chore, and she's not wrong. John's problem is that Greeks will show up even when they haven't RSVPed. If it's that cultural that you feel like you can't just shut them out, just throw some empty tables in the back, dude. Done! I should have been a wedding planner. Mindy tells us that his patience quickly wears thin, but he just seems the most annoyed that he can't read his own handwriting. They muddle through the chore with Angela smiling, and he says that all he cares about is that everyone has a seat at dinner. The editors cut badly from her starting to reply to an interview bite where she says that she is anal-retentive. I don't believe for a second that quote had to do with making the seating chart. And she still looks too cheerful.
