Episode Summary

Kevin and Lucy are finally ready to tie the knot, but an unexpected thunderstorm might prevent long-distance relatives from being there. Lucy is determined not to let anything put a damper on her dream wedding, until she starts questioning whether or not she wants to go through with it. Elsewhere, Eric and Annie feel the pangs of watching their little girl grow up, and Eric adjusts to the idea of returning to work at his church. Mary heads back to Glen Oak for the big event, and she doesn't come by herself. Kevin chooses a stand-by best man in case his unreliable older brother doesn't make it, and a fight breaks out between some guests on their way to the ceremony.moreless

  • Lucy and Kevin's wedding!

    Lucy and Kevin get married! Mary comes with a surprise: Matt! Lucy is having second thoughts. There is a storm which threatens to prevent the wedding or the guests arriving. Grandpa Charles, Hank, Julie, Mrs. Kinkirk, and Ben all manage to make it despite the weather. Chandler and Roxanne pick up Mrs. Kinkirk and Ben in Las Vegas. Chandler and Ben fight while Roxanne and Mrs. Kinkirk fight. Eric returns to the church! Ruthie says that she wants to marry Peter.

    This was a wonderful episode! Lucy and Kevin are so happy and cute together! I was happy to see some familar faces like Hank, Grandpa Charles, Julie, and Grandma Jenny. I wish the Colonel and Ruth and George were there. I don't like Gabrielle at all! I want Peter and Ruthie to be together! They are so perfect for each other! I like the fighting part! That was funny! I give this episode a 10 out of 10!moreless
  • Finally, Lucy's wedding! Where is Robbie?

    This was a very sweet episode. Kevin is such a hottie and so sweet and romantic with Lucy. I like how Lucy's character has grown into such a cute and interesting girl. But lately she is so self involved and creates the same drama in each episode. That is getting old. Why is she so insecure all the time? I dont understand how she thinks Roxanne is like a supermodel becuase she is not that cute at all. She is too rough also. They are not putting cops in a good light and she is so young. My big question though is where is Robbie? Did they ever explain where he went?moreless
  • omg!!!!!!! lucy's getting married!!

    omg!!!! i cant belive it!!! lucy's a getting married! how sweet but it was soooo painful 4 lucy 2 think that no one would b able 2 make it 2 her wedding. but thankfully more ppl showed up than she expected.

    the best part of this episode waz when mary showed up woth her " mystery guest " her mystery guest waz of course the oldest camden .... matt!! ! ! he also comforted her because she waz such a nervous bride. ... lol

    but i cuddnt believe it when roxanne and chandler AND ben and mrs. kinkirk get in to a fight. and then they all show up at the wedding soaked 2 death and very inapropriately dressed!! but at least they showed up!!

  • Lucy's wedding!

    The episode we all were waiting for!

    Despite a nasty thunderstorm that has cut off power and grounded flights, Lucy's wedding to Kevin does go through, and siblings Matt and Mary do make a special surprise appearance!

    A high-rating episode, this is one of my favorites. Many family members, like Dr. Hank and Aunt Julie, return. Songs from Stephen's first CD are included in the episode. And you truly see the family bond. I recall how my family members and I would sometimes just lay in bed at night and talk about things to come.

    Don't miss this one! 10 out of 10!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (15)

    • When Lucy is getting ready to walk down the aisle, look at the back of the church. You can see somebody's hand letting go of her train.

    • This is the first episode since the season 6 finale "Holy War (2)" where all seven Camden Kids appear.

    • Nitpick: Ms. Kinkirk (Bo Derek) is smiling during her aggressive fight with Roxanne on the ground. Why would she be smiling at a moment like this?

    • Look closely at the pews during the wedding ceremony. At some shots they look full towards the front. At close ups of Kevin and Lucy, they look empty.

    • "Why is Kevin sleeping in the Camden home and not in his garage apartment in the beginning of the episode? (Even though it was raining)" -- Remember that in that last new episode Kevin's apartment wasn't renovated. After this episode, it is renovated. Thus, during the wedding time the apartment was being finished so Kevin couldn't sleep in there.

    • "The whole show Lucy had curlers in her hair. Why was her hair straight at the church?" Lucy had velcro curlers in her hair this episode. These do not leave ringlets in your hair -- they just give your hair more body.

    • When Roxanne and Mrs. Kinkirk were fighting, looking closely it looks like Mrs. Kinkirk was smiling when they were rolling around on the ground.

    • Why is Kevin sleeping in the Camden home and not in his garage apartment in the beginning of the episode? (Eventhough it was raining)

    • The whole show Lucy had curlers in her hair. Why was her hair straight at the church?

    • When Chandler and Ben were about to fight, Ben was already out of the car. Chandler got out of the car but didn't shut the door. Roxanne went out of the car to puke. She didn't shut the door either. Chandler punched Ben and they went to the ground. When they got up, the door was shut. No one shut the door or was around it to shut it.

    • When the house was shown, when the power was off, why was the light on on the front porch?

    • When Hank got a ride from Roxanne he left the driver-side window of his car all the way down - wasn't the rain one of the reasons he was stranded in the first place?

    • Apparently the AC-powered clocks in the Camden house miraculously keep time during a power failure. That flip-digit clock in the master bedroom cannot operate on battery power, but it didn't miss a second. The power came back on just after Simon and Eric had their discussion about Simon needing Eric back in church or he might lose faith in God. The clock light went on at that moment but the time was the correct time.

    • When Lucy walked up the isle she gave her flowers to Ruthie which makes Ruthie have two bouquets. When Lucy walks back down Ruthie gives her flowers back to Lucy, but Ruthie still has two bouquets of flowers when she walks back down the isle.--actually if you look closely when Lucy bends down it looks as if she's getting the flowers from ruthie but in fact she leans down to grab her dress so she can walk. She isn't carrying any flowers on her way back down the aisle with Kevin. This is why Ruthie has 2 bouquets.

    • When Lucy was trying to sleep at the beginning of the episode, she still had her earings in.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Mrs. Kinkirk: Hey, do you want a piece of me?
      Roxanne: I'm a cop!
      Mrs. Kinkirk: And I raised two boys! I can beat you up!

    • Chandler: Get out of the car.
      Ben: Why?
      Chandler: Because I'm gonna kill you.
      Ben: You're a man of God. You can't kill me!
      Chandler: What, you never heard of the Crusades or the Inquisition?
      Ben: You're not Catholic!

    • Matt: (to Lucy when she has cold feet about the wedding) Life is short, Luce. I see it every day. People who thought they had more time to do the things they want to do. People who want the idea, who never appreciated the less-than-ideal ordinary day with family and friends. People who are indecisive or too scared to do what was in their heart, then found they weren't going to get another chance. Your life is in front of you, and you have a man you love to share it with. Do you know how many husbands and wives are in love with each other? How many people never find someone? You and Kevin found each other. You're madly in love with each other. It doesn't matter that it's not exactly as you planned it, that it happened before you reached every goal you have. You'll still reach your goals. You'll just have someone to hold your hand and encourage you along the way. So embrace this experience. Get married. Live your life. Be happy.
