And then we're watching what looks like a wedding video shot by Claire. Nate the groom tells her he feels "alive," but he's having trouble pinning on his boutonniere. He appeals to his brother for help, but David diagnoses a defective pin: "It won't prick." "Looks like Nate may have to get married without a prick," narrates Claire. Leave it to us pros, please, Claire. Cut to Ruth outside the church. Claire asks her for wedding advice for Nate. After a shy pause, Ruth comes up with "Don't give up. Even when things get hard. And they always do eventually. Never stop trying." Which is probably the same advice Brenda's mom would give, but with an extra "don't" between "things" and "get." Cut to Catherine O'Hara, storming onto the grounds and hollering about nearly getting killed on the drive over. And there's Lisa's sister Barb, asking Claire where David is so she can get the rings. Shaky-cam Claire chases Barb over to David, who hands over the rings and gives the lens a "Fucking Kimmels" look. In the dressing room, Lisa's mom picks up a crying granddaughter. In my first big rookie mistake, I wonder what the Kimmels are even doing at Nate and Brenda's wedding. But soon I realize that we're watching the video from Nate's wedding to Lisa. What tipped me off? The sight of Lisa in her bridal gown. I'm pretty good at sussing these things out, you know. She's blathering on and on into the mirror (where we can now see the camera-wielding Claire) about destiny and Happily Ever After and how every moment of her entire life has led up to this day, just as if she's not going to end up dumped in a hole by her husband in the desert somewhere sans jawbone.
