Shershow is getting married! Who is Shershow, you ask? Well, he's the kind of crazy, drifter guy you never think will take the plunge. Actually, Penny thought he might someday. Shershow was her safety. If neither of them found anyone by the time they were 40, they were supposed to marry each other. So much for planning ahead.
Max has been asked to officiate Shershow's wedding. The fact that he never had a minister's license before freaks out Jane since Max also officiated her wedding. Well, he "unofficially" officiated her wedding. Now Jane wants get married right after Shershow says "I do." His nuptials just happen to fall on her sham anniversary. Jane cordially invites her friends to a re-wedding!
Max bets his pals 20 bucks that he can make them weep at the wedding ceremony. Of course, Penny might start crying sooner when she gets a peek at the new Shershow and his beautiful bride-to-be. To cover the fact that she's still single, Penny convinces her gay friend Derek to be her fake fiancÃ©. It's show time! Derek plays it straight by channeling his inner-Danny Zuko from Grease. We got chills, they're multiplyin...
Shershow's fiancee, Melinda, believes Alex is a wedding jinx. Dave tries to lift his ex's spirits. He suggests they serve as each other's wingman to scope out potential mates. Alex's first attempt at wingin' it ends abruptly when she knocks over a portrait of Shershow and Melinda. Thinks get worse when a way-intoxicated Penny takes a header while giving a toast. Cheers to the wedding jinx theory!
Alex is shocked when Dave goes to bed with a beautiful, albeit brain dead, brunette they met at the bar. Guess she's not such a bad wingman after all. As for Penny, she's shocked to see that Shershow is planning to bolt from the premises. Pen's pre-faceplant speech really struck a nerve, but she convinces her ex-safety that he's not the Shershow of old. The wedding is on!
The wedding is off! At least, it looks that way when Melinda finds herself unable to walk down the aisle. Alex feels the need to chat with the runaway bride. She says, "Don't do what I did or you'll end up pretending to be best friends with the guy who could have been the love of your life." Nice.
Actually, Melinda wasn't running away. She just had to adjust her wedding dress. The embarrassing situation takes an awkward turn when Alex realizes Dave overheard her entire speech. Speaking of speeches, Max aces his ceremonial duties by making everyone cry with his words. That's 20 bucks he gets from each of his pals!
At the reception, Alex tells Dave that she only said what she said to get Melinda back to the wedding. We're not sure we believe her, but we do know she's no longer a jinx. And Jane doesn't need a new perfect wedding since she already has the perfect husband. As for Penny, she lost Derek to a handsome wedding guest. Fear not. She still has Max. He's her gayftey. That's "gay safety" for those of you playing along at home.
