  • Isabel gets married.

    8.9
    There are some really good moments in this episode and a lot of just blah moments as well. Let me start by saying that the wedding was really sweet and I'm happy for Isabel and it was nice when her parents came although her mother brought her a really ugly dress (and why if Isabel couldn't get a dress in time just use her powers to transform the thrift store find?). I really like the bachelor party in this episode and the fight that begins between Kyle, Micheal and the statistician, that line is really classic. The Kivar thing that begins in this episode ties up some loose ends but I really didn't like it. I also like the Kyle/Isabel thing that becomes apparent in this episode.moreless
  • As Isabel's wedding is only a few days away, Max investigates Jesse.

    7.8
    It's an average wedding episode. There are some good moments here and there but the Vilandra flashbacks are really boring. They try to show how Iz still has feelings for Kivar but it's done in a pretty unimaginative way. The highlight of this episode is the cliffhanger end.



    Also, another good moments is Jesse's bachelor party. Max investigates everyone, Kyle uses Michael to give to someone he hates a lesson. The whole thing ends up in a brawl and Max ends up punching Jesse in the face.



    He later heals him and tries sloppishly to hide his real power.moreless

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • TRIVIA: Featured music in this episode -

      -The Deeper I Fall by Vaughan Penn

    • In the beginning of the episode, there's three days to the wedding. When there's just one day to go, it's Saturday, which makes the beginning of the episode a Thursday. Isabel goes to the crashdown at 6:42 AM and doesn't leave until it's late night. Liz and Maria stay with her all day long. Don't they ever go to school?

    • When Michael sticks the pin into the arm of Jesse's suit, in order to test his blood, too much blood is shown, because the pin would have only caused a small scratch.

    • In one of the shots of Isabel and Jesse dancing, Phillip walks up to them to cut in, but the shot that was used is before the shot where he was still at the table with Diane.

  • QUOTES (15)

    • Isabel: Um, I want you to do something for me at the wedding. During the ceremony, actually.
      Jim: It's not an usher, is it? I look so bad in those monkey suits. I mean, I'm touched and all, but...
      Isabel: No, um, I want you to give me away.
      Jim: You mean...
      Isabel: Walk me down the aisle. My, um, my parents aren't going and since I sort of think of you as a father figure, I thought... What do you say?
      Jim: (pause) Yes. Yes, I'd be honored.

    • Liz: Dad?
      Mr. Parker: Yes?
      Liz: I am going to dance with Max.
      (Mr. Parker looks at Liz in an "I don't think so you try it and you will never see him again" way)
      Liz: Not because it is tradition, and not because I found some kind of loop hole, but because it is my choice. We love each other and we are going to be together, and I love you too.

    • Kyle: Sure. Why? Who is it?
      Isabel: Someone who can't be here.

    • Kyle: God, I hate cell phones.

    • Pool Guy: Nobody makes shots like that. It's a statistical impossibility.
      Michael: How would you know?
      Pool Guy: I'm a statistician.

    • Isabel: Jitters? Surely you jest.
      Kyle: No, and don't call me--
      Both: --Shirley.
      Isabel: We are spending way too much time together.

    • Isabel: Huh. Whose blood is this? Is this Jesse's blood? Are you testing his blood now?
      Michael: And he passed! Because I knew he would pass. I told Max...
      Isabel: Max is in on this?

    • Michael: We've got bad news, Maxwell. Jesse Ramirez is... Ta-da! Human. Yeah, nice red blood cells. Not a green one in the bunch.

    • Maria: Oh, thank God you're here! Oh...Ok... Um, here's the situation. Uh, there's a slight kink in the plans. Your... Your dress is in Florida.
      Isabel: What!?

    • Isabel: You broke his nose?!
      Max: I didn't mean to. It just...happened.
      Isabel: Oh, it just happened. You just happened to be swinging your fist in the air, and he just happened to step in front it!

    • Mrs. Evans: It's lovely. I mean, really it is, but I just thought that maybe as an option. This was my wedding dress, girls, and my mother wore it before I did, and I'd be honored...
      Isabel: I love you, Mom.

    • Isabel: It is all about trust, Max. God, do you really think that I would marry someone that I don't even know? Someone who might be secretly working for the FBI or even--ohh! An alien? Don't you think I have walked through his dreams a few times, and that maybe I checked on his alien status a long time ago? God, Max! The irony here is that I trusted you. I trusted you to stand up at my wedding when my whole family bailed. I trusted you to be there for me... and you weren't.

    • Max: First we need a sample of his blood, make sure he's not an alien.
      Michael: Oh, yeah, that'll be easy.
      Max: Then we check into his background, talk to his family, his friends, try and find out everything we can about this guy. We can't let Isabel know. She already feels abandoned by most of her family. If she knows that I'm not into this...
      Michael: Max, you're not into this.
      Max: I know. I know, but... Now that I stupidly agreed to be best man, I can't let her know that. Not until I have something solid on Jesse.

    • Max (about Isabel marrying Jesse): Don't you think there's a reason that everyone keeps telling you the same thing... like maybe we're right?
      Isabel: Or maybe you could trust me.

    • Michael: Oh Max we gotta go...cuz we gotta do that thing...we gotta do.
