look, mr. bradford i-i realize that we didn't exactly hit it off the first... ( sarcastic laugh ) i just thought maybe we could, you know, start over. well, i suppose i could try for victoria's sake. good. well, i think th-that... you know, my daughter means a lot to me. i was both mother and father to her since she was an infant. boy, you must have had a tremendous clothing bill. to say nothing of the wig on... mother... sorry. no... no, that was very amusing. thank you. as i was saying...
well, i thought vicky was an only child. i meant between her and her mother. she left me, you know. well, you know, kids do grow up. i meant her mother. i always had such high hopes for victoria. ah, well... uh, sir... sir, i really don't think vicky's doing too badly. no, i mean with her job. oh. oh, you mean because of the promotion they offered her. what promotion? she didn't tell you? no. oh, well... it's not important now. she's going to turn it down. too bad, though. she's been working so hard for it these past two years. then why is she going to turn it down? it would mean moving to houston
us. well, why didn't she say anything? i guess she didn't want to make you feel... guilty. oh... you must have more on the ball than i thought to make her give up something that she wanted... so badly. hi, dad. darling... how are you? i'm just fine. has jack been entertaining you? no. excuse me, why didn't... why didn't you mention anything to me about that job offer in houston? 'cause it wasn't important. i'm going to turn it down. well, shouldn't you at least... consider it? i already did. and...? and i'm going to turn it down. oh. are-are... are you sure, though, you're doing the right thing?
well, n-n... y-y... i-i just... i mean, you should do what's right for you. but, jack, if i move to houston we'll never see each other. we'd still have weekends and holidays. weekends and holidays? you know, we really don't see that much of each other as it is. you're flying around all the time. i work all hours. what i'm trying to say is i want you to do what's best for you. i will. dad, could you give me a lift home? now? wait a minute. i'm sorry. i didn't realize how tired i was. well, we... shall we? vicky... thank you for a very pleasant evening, jack. vicky... hey, listen, i-i'll call you tomorrow, okay? okay. but if i'm not home... i'll call you. terri! ja... oh, excuse me. i talked to phillip and we're going to do it. hi, vicky. we're going to get...

so do women. they do? of course they do, mr. furley. women are every bit as warm and passionate as men. they are? yes! then why do they always act like they're doing me a favor? jack, do you think we need something else over the door? did you say something? i said, "why don't you just call vicky and get it over with?" why doesn't she call me? good question. call her and ask her. terri, please i'd like to do this my own way. is that all right? oh, jack, i hate to see you moping around like this. this is janet's wedding day. yeah, you're right, terri. on a day as important as this i'm not going to let some girl make me miserable. i'm in pain.
but i don't want you to start the wedding march until i cue you, miss kennell, all right? oh, i just love weddings, don't you? do you like watching train wrecks, too? ( doorbell rings ) hey, everybody i bet that's the bridegroom. look at this here! hey, phillip! howdy. hiya, jack. it's the big day, huh? you got it. this is my best man, tony williams. welcome. thank you. i'll go tell janet you're here. okay, great. who is it? it's me. can i come in? yes. yes! terri, make sure it's straight across the bottom... what's the matter? oh, janet, you look so beautiful. oh, jack tripper if you make me cry, i'm going to kill you. i wanted to tell you phillip's out there. oh, then i'm not going to kill you. oh! are you happy, janet?
but i'd be even happier if vicky was here. so would i. the minister's here! are you ready?! mr. furley, just a few minutes. right. jack, terri... how many minutes, two, three? mr. furley! take as long as you want. janet, janet, you were saying? oh, well, i just wanted to tell the two of you ( voice breaking ): that you guys are the very best friends... i... i just wanted to say how much you mean to me. janet? yes, terri? shut up and get married. ( gasps ): is she ready? is she ready? she's ready. she's ready! get ready, everybody!
just a second. mrs. kennell, take five. oh, my god! i walked in on janet's wedding! it's all right. it's all right. oh, no, i shouldn't have come here. why did you? to find out why you're trying to get rid of me. get rid of you? yes, i thought we meant something to each other. we do! then, why do you want me to take that job in houston? i don't want to stand in your way. i know how much that job means to you. where did you hear that? from your father. oh, i should have known. oh, jack, that job means nothing to me. but you do. oh, vicky. so... tell me what my dear, sweet father said. he told me...
psst, larry! where's jack? he's supposed to give me away. he's in the kitchen with vicky. she's, she's here? yeah, but i don't think jack is doing too well. larry, this has just gone far enough. nobody sees me! boy, you know, that was low. that was really low. oh, stop that! listen, you two... jack, i know that you are crazy about vicky... janet, wait. shh! and, vicky, i know that you're crazy about jack. janet, listen... no, you listen. now, i want you two to stop acting like a couple of silly kids. and i want you to make up and i want you to do it right now. go on. well, what do you think? i guess we better do what she says.
dearly beloved we are gathered here today in the sight of god to join together this man and this woman in holy matrimony. who gives this woman to be wed to this man? well, normally, it would be janet's father but since he's not here... just say, "i do." i do. the success of a marriage is not just the responsibility of the husband and wife but all those who love and are near to them. this marriage should not mean the end of old friendships. rather than losing one another you should feel more tightly bound than ever sharing the joy and happiness. do you, phillip, take this woman to be your lawfully wedded wife to love, honor and cherish, for richer or poorer so long as you both shall live? i do.
to be your lawfully wedded husband to love, honor and cherish, for richer or poorer so long as you shall live? ( voice breaking ): i do. may i have the ring, please? place this on the third finger of her left hand and repeat after me: with this ring, i thee wed. with this ring, i thee wed. by the power vested in me by god and the state of california i now pronounce you husband and wife. you may kiss the bride. thanks. you take good care of her now. janet, oh, god! oh, mr. furley! oh, janet, i'm so happy! oh, thank you.
oh, janet, i'm sorry i almost spoiled your wedding. oh, no, vicky. your coming here today was the best present i could have gotten. oh! oh! janet. larry. what can i say? mmmm! wow, you know that's the first time you ever kissed me? and the last. i hope you two are very happy. you deserve it, princess. ( voice breaking ); oh, thank you, larry. all right, everybody's invited down to my place for refreshments! janet, wait! what, honey? haven't you forgotten something? what? oh, my! you're right! oh, janet's going to throw the bridal bouquet. ( chuckles ): let her rip! okay. one...
