Episode 23: "Physician Martenne" -
Episode 1.23 -- “Caroline and the Wedding”
Original airdate: May 16, 1996
It’s an omen! It’s cliffhanger time in The City as wedding bells of doom start to ring in episode 1.23, “Caroline and the Wedding”! Don your best ren faire garb and crack open a bottle of Chianti as we attempt to answer the important questions: Will “sincere amore” win the day? Will Father Damian get a spin-off? Will Del’s cousins arrive from San Francisco? Is a hot dog dessert? Did Richard pay for his breadsticks? Are we making it all up? Awooooo!!!
This week's "plugs":
Are they both brides? Some weird choices being made here.
The rare fashion misstep from our Annie. The ugly choker...
Annie's such a great maid of honor though...
Doth Mother know you weareth her drapes?
Look, when we said nothing good happens in this room...
...and the leather mom pants.
They're both so perfect and we love them!
HOW VERY DARE.
Annie Spadaro, kissy-face dirtbag child.
This is *chef's kiss*
The brilliance of Andy Lauer in three GIFs:
The line of little MADELINE-esque schoolgirls is a nice touch.
Awful lot of rosary hijinks in this episode.
Here's Father Damian (national treasure Michael McKean), who will definitely get a spin-off series when Hollywood asks us for our ideas...
Poor doofy-ass Del.
"What are these? These are beads?"
Check out Remo's embroidered cuffs!!!
Upon closer examination, Richard's book appears to be War and Peace. On brand as always.
The sad floor mattress of a man who doesn't have Miz Mooz money.
Masterpiece in progress.
WHAT ARE YOU DOING YOU ABSOLUTE FOOL
And the studio audience goes "AWOOOOOOO"
Richard goes on an unhinged kissing spree:
"My cousins are here. FROM SAN FRANCISCO."
Aah, your underwear! Up yer alley!
R.I.P. Murder Apartment
"Save 'em for Christmas."
I'm sorry, we're still thinking about the "cousins from San Francisco" scene. We'll never not be thinking about the "cousins from San Francisco" scene.
