The song the girls perform for Charlene at her wedding shower is "Wedding Bell Blues" by the Fifth Dimension.
We learn Charlene's middle name is Olivia, the name which she later gives her daughter.
Uncle Howard: You know, being an old country lawyer, I usually get to deal with the debris of marriage. So it's a high privilege for me tonight to be in on the beginning of a marriage that looks so promising. Bill, Charlene: it's obvious to everybody here the passion that y'all hold for one another. It's something you can't fake, you can't hide, you can't buy; when you got it, you got it. And you two surely have it. My wish for you this evening is that you carry that passion with you through all your remaining days...always dancing that great male/female dance of love, sex, marriage, and eternal friendship as no one else has ever danced it...before you. May you, in short, dance the perfect Missouri Waltz.
