Mike and Gloria are getting ready for the wedding of their best friends Al and Trudy, but their excitement over the occasion is eclipsed by Gloria's frustrations that Mike is not taking her feelings seriously.


In the wake of the birth of little Joey, Gloria and Michael are at odds with one another over communication issues. Gloria is upset because Michael keeps making big and little decisions without consulting her despite the fact that their marriage is suppose to be an equal partnership. The crux of their argument is over plans for their friends who are getting married before the year ends. Problems with the arrangements cause them to lose their original location and so it is suggested that they have it in the Stivic's living room. Mike comes to understand why Gloria is upset when she re-writes the speech he was suppose to make as best man.


  • Both Carroll O'Connor and Jean Stapleton do not appear in this episode (a first for Stapleton). Billy Crystal also guest stars, in his very first television series appearance.
