  • Joe reluctantly agrees to be the best man at a wedding - the only problem is he does not remember the groom!

    In this episode, Joe agrees to be the best man at the wedding of a person that he can not remember. Joe basically agrees, but struggles to obtain the identity of the mystery groom. In the end, he confesses to the groom out of a moment of pure frustration. Joe than retracts the truth in favor of a more pleasant lie. This is the heart of the episode that made it emotional and special. There are other funny parts as well, such as the chants of "Nu-dah-tee! Nu-dah-tee!" (Especially from the high school french teacher. The outcome of the wedding seemed somewhat contrived - a cheap surprise and a cheaper laugh - but all in all a terrific episode.
