Episode Summary

Geraldine marries Harry with the village in tow as wedding planners. Owen tries one last time, to get the Vicar to be with him and fails. As the villagers take their individual jobs for the wedding, Alice becomes the stylist for the wedding. The theme of the wedding is the surprisingly non-traditional, "Doctor Who". As the Vicar steps out of the church, a married woman, she sets off, and we see clips from past episodes. After the end credits, Harry intervenes with Geraldine's joke and Alice finally gets it and finds it alot funnier then anyone could expect.moreless

    • QUOTES (15)

      • Hugo: I was looking for someone who looked like Posh Spice but it turned out I wanted something completely different...
        Geraldine: Awwwww...
        Hugo: No, it's really Cheryl Tweedy from Girls Aloud I want. But I'm quite happy with Alice for the moment.

      • Geraldine: When it comes to a woman to marry do you actually know what you're looking for?
        Owen: Yes, two legs. Although maybe that is a bit fussy - I'd be happy with one, or none...or four.

      • Owen: What really puzzles me is why him, Vicar, and tell me, honestly, what's he [Harry] got that I haven't?
        Geraldine: Deodorant...

      • Jim: Do you remember the great power cut of 2001 when we had no electricity for eight whole months?
        Geraldine: No, that was just you Jim. You hadn't paid your bill.

      • Jim and Alice: (singing, referring to the modern marriage process) They start off shagging on the floor and end up in a court of law.

      • Jim: (singing) I wish you countless years together and pray that things will never get as bad as Paul and Heather...

      • Hugo: We've been thinking for weeks what the village as a whole could give you as a wedding present.
        Geraldine: (gasps) It's not a mass suicide is it???
        Hugo: No.
        Geraldine: Shame.

      • Geraldine: (To Alice) No! You can't think! After all these years don't you realise that? Every time you find yourself thinking you should think 'I don't know how to think therefore whatever I am thinking must be wrong'!

      • Geraldine (on phone): No Jeremy, I don't want you to come over and say goodnight prayers with me...and yes Jeremy, a goodnight shag is completely out of the question.

      • Geraldine: Talk about men being like buses, you wait a whole lifetime for one to propose to you and then they all come along at once.

      • Geraldine: I do love you Jim, you're a weird and wonderful mistake that God made late in the nineteenth century but I don't really think we're meant to be husband and wife.
        Jim: Fair enough...and a night of meaningless but athletic sex is out of the question?
        Geraldine: It is, yeah.

      • Owen: (to Geraldine) I think I've made it very clear in the past that I would have been happy to settle for your presence in my married bed as my beloved wife and shag bucket.

      • Geraldine: It's not the worst idea you've ever had Alice. That was your suggestion to stop burning coal and start burning pubic hair instead.
        Alice: Well it's easier to get at and we don't really need it.

      • Geraldine: You do find love in some of the strangest places.
        Owen: In my cow shed for a start.

      • (Alice takes off coat)
        Geraldine: Ahh - unusual matron of honour outfit. What was the thinking behind that?
        (shot of Alice wearing the same outfit worn by David Tennant in 'Doctor Who')
        Alice: Well it is in fact a perfect replica of the costume worn by Doctor Who as portrayed by the actor David Tennant.
        Geraldine: Really? Why?
        Alice: I am a Timelord, watching over your marriage throughout eternity.
        Geraldine: Excellent. And the other two bridesmaids?
        Alice: (giggles) Wait and see!
        Geraldine: Oo ho ha ha, I've got a very bad feeling about that...

    • NOTES (1)

      • The mention of 'Paul and Heather' in Jim's song is a reference to Paul McCartney, of the famous band The Beatles and his current wife, Heather Mills, a model.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Matron of honor, Alice, is dressed as the Tenth Doctor Who and the two bridesmaids are dressed as Daleks. Doctor Who is a well known and long running BBC Sci-Fi TV series and Daleks are an alien species.
