  • show Description
  • The Wedding Bells tells the story of three young sisters who inherit the family business -- otherwise known as The Wedding Palace. The show centres on this family owned wedding planning business that supposedly sees that its clients live happily ever after, or at least until the honeymoon!The Wedding Bells was produced by 20th Century FOX Television in association with David E. Kelley Productions (creator of Ally McBeal, Boston Legal and The Practice),and distributed by the FOX Television Network. The series was given a 13 episode initial order by Fox but that was cut short to only 7 episodes due to poor ratings and thus the show was suddenly cancelled really before it ever got going.moreless

  • Quotes (29)

    • Amanda: (to guy who is hitting on her) That response did not satisfy me at all. That was a wretched answer. You have upset me further, wedding planner. I feel a deep woe now.

    • Jane: Sammy, you have 'sex hair.' Who was it?

    • Stella: We need to speak briefly about my sister. Annie: What about her? Stella: She won't hesitate to make it all about her, she tends to hyperventilate so she can pull out a paper bag and breath into it, and she cries just to get me. Annie: Get you? Stella: I have defective tear ducts, it's genetic. I can't cry. If she acts up we need to get her out!

    • Jane: (To guy who is hitting on her) You need to walk away now. Guy: Ahhh come on. Jane: If you don't I'll hit you. Ralph: Jane. Jane: Which would leave you two choices, you could part with a bloody lip or you could hit me back. Ralph: Jane. Jane: Which would you think would cast you in a better light? Guy: You hit me, I'll hit him. (Nods toward Ralph) Ralph: Great, I knew it. Ernesto: (Just walking up) You hit him I hit you, and then you finish hitting.

    • Jane: First I was afraid, I was petrified. Kept thinking I could never live without him by my side. Then I spent so many night thinking how he did me wrong, and I grew strong. Ralph: You think you're funny don't you? Jane: I do, don't you?

    • Ralph: If I have to sing 'I Will Survive' one... (Jane interrupts) Jane: If you want to survive, you will apologize. Tell her that she's... Tell her she's hot. Ralph: Tell her what?!

    • David: (After seeing Russell walk in wearing short-shorts) I don't know quite what to say. Russell: I have a squash match. David: Ah. Russell: You play? David: I don't actually, but I'm certainly tempted now.

    • Annie: What's our policy on brides bumping into each other, Debbie? Debbie: It should never, ever happen, 'cause it's their special, special time, and each should feel like the only happy, happy bride on the planet, 'cause it's their special, special time.

    Trivia (2)

    • Goof: Ernesto refers to his pasta alla puttanesca as his "little whore", and says that that is what the name translates as. There is, however, no diminutive (indicator of smallness, such as the Italian suffixes -ino/-ina or -etto/-etta) in the name. It more literally translates as "pasta whore style", or loosely, "whore's pasta".

    • At the end when Jane and Russell are dancing to "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" the song is being sung by a man dressed as Liza Minelli, but was originally sung by Judy Garland. Liza Minelli is ironically the daughter of Judy Garland.

    Allusions (2)

    • Jane: (to Ralph) First I was afraid. I was petrified. Kept thinking I could never live without him by my side. Then I spent so many nights thinking how he did me wrong, and I grew strong. This is part of the song "I Will Survive" sung by Gloria Gaynor in the late 1970's.

    • The episode title is a pun of the Ernest Hemingway novel, For Whom the Bell Tolls.

  • Fan Reviews (26)
  • With so many violent shows on tv, this show was funny and enjoyable. My friends, family, and I watched and enjoyed every minute of the show. It touched humorous and serious women's issues as. It showed how family really does matter.
