It's Wedding Day! Justin is all dressed in his white suit, still rushing around like a headless chicken and now his button is coming loose! That's the last straw -- the wedding's off! Nora offers to stitch up the loose button. So the wedding is back on! Huzzah. By the way, Justin is all starched and clean and ready to wed, but HE HAS NOT SHAVED. Do you know what this means? This means that he thinks that his sparse two-day beard is a FASHION STATEMENT. I always thought it was just that he was busy doing Important Things like Studying or Having Interventions and didn't have time to bother with the boring act of shaving. BUT, NO, apparently it is an actual decision. Thus rendering the beard not just a straggly reminder of better things to do, but instead an ersatz George Michael proto-beard that is passing as Justin's lone shout-out to facial hair differentiation and love of the 80s. In short, HE WANTS TO LOOK LIKE THAT. Who knew? Nora stops mid-stitch and stares at her son because, you guys, it's his wedding day! Say it with me: Awwwwww. Nora beams at him and comments that she is so happy to see him not looking so worried and panicked and instead almost looking serene, like he might actually want to get married. Like how nice that he looks almost happy on his wedding day, right? He looks flustered because he doesn't want anyone pointing out that he's been an absolute ass for months. Then he notes that Nora looks pretty beamish herself and she smiles and Justin knows it has to do with that skeevy doctor she's been hanging around, only he doesn't know that the doctor is skeevy because Sarah and Kevin have been keeping that little nugget of truth to themselves. And, wait, wasn't Nora supposed to ask Justin if she could bring the guy to his wedding? Shouldn't she have asked in advance? We all know how Justin feels about surprises. Nora asks Justin if she can give him some advice: the scariest things can make you the happiest. Justin is unimpressed with those words of wisdom. Saul rushes in all recently-ordained and ready to officiate. But does he have the Khalil Gibran? They can't get married without that. And I am SO glad that there is no, sniff sniff, I wish Dad was here bullshit, because William was a philandering pilfering pain in the ass and mentioning him on the day that you plan to marry his mistress's daughter would just be awkward, to say the least. Justin and Saul run off as Nora's phone rings. It's Simon. Obviously he is not coming because obviously he "had to fly to Portland," which is a euphemism for "cash that $100,000 check pronto." Nora sighs in sorrow over having to go stag to her son's wedding, not yet realizing that she has just given her money to a con man and her children will NEVER let her forget it.
