Episode Summary

My Big Fat Greek Wedding
Everyone in the Portokalos family worries about Toula. Still unmarried at 30-years-old, she works at Dancing Zorba's, the Greek restaurant owned by her parents, Gus and Maria, and smells like garlic bread. Vowing that she'd rather stab herself in the eye with a red-hot poker than work in the restaurant for the rest of her life, Toula is ready for a change. Unfortunately, the rest of her family is not. After taking a job at her aunt's travel agency, she falls in love with Ian Miller, a high school teacher who is tall, handsome and definitely not Greek. Toula isn't sure which will be more upsetting to her old-fashioned father, that Ian is a Xeno (foreigner) or that he's a vegetarian. But none of it matters once he asks her to marry him. Toula knows that if he can pass muster with her crazy relatives, and get baptized in the Greek Orthodox Church their big fat Greek wedding will be a piece of cake.moreless
