If You're Going to Trot Down the Bridal Path, You Need a Groom!

Synopsis

The guys confer. Shannon is just after Richard's gold. "It can only lead to misery." They must break up the engagement, even though "We'll still be stuck with her ourselves!" Jangle impersonates Richard, but flunks the mustache test. The guys hire an actress to claim she's Richard's wife at the wedding, but she runs off to the horse races. The wedding goes ahead, until Shannon hears "for richer or for POORER" and balks. And "That's the end of our second Showcase ish!"
