So people are working. Amy meets with Caryn and Matt on the mule. Matt goes on about how they are way behind on pumpkin season. He’s totally worried about the kiddie fun zone that seems to involve large tractor tires. Amy notes how Matt doesn’t communicate squat.
Amy wanders into the sacred Matt office to chat up Matt. There’s a new wedding couple, Liz and Mike. They want a candy shop. Its four weeks to the wedding and TENT ONLY IF RAIN. Yup, Mike is a war vet… funny how the Roloff boys who aren’t handicapped never consider service. The bride wants rustic but elegant. Matt and Amy make it very clear the barn isn’t for people. The bride likes the church. The church is looking a tad ramshackle.
Matt screeches to no one “Lets get some work done!” He orders people to build an adventure park. Oh look, the Roloff kids put in a an appearance for under ten seconds. Matt tells Amy she’s in charge of the wedding because he needs to handle pumpkin season. He repeatedly insists its all on her and she repeatedly says no.
Two weeks to the wedding! Matt has an idea for “the special moment” an event that first and foremost leverages the farm. They have a little house in the woods idea but Amy worries about rain. Matt notes he may not have the strength to walk because life has taken its toll. Normally Matt guts through the pain to please us but…. He’s struggling and makes sure we know it. They examine the ratty barn. Matt basically bitches Amy out and says she likes to make him miserable and walks off. Matt also hates the whole candy store idea and bitches Amy out again. Matt notes he may divorce her.
Now Matt is redoing the tour road and notes he is in excrutiating pain and it sucks to be Matt Roloff. Amy hauls the kids into the barn to clean it… again. I mean really, why is the wedding barn constantly needing cleaning? A tent goes up on the property. The wedding planner is fairly forceful but the groom insists they will marry in the rain.
Matt and Amy chat on mules. Matt wants to cancel the wedding. Amy notes he’s being ridiculous. Matt notes he’s in a ton of pain and has taken on too much. I’d be more sympathetic if a) we were talking about a real business and B) Matt wants the attention of the show more than his health.
One day to the wedding. Amy makes the kids play with Hershey kisses again. Amy tells them to make it look like an old fashioned candy store. The kids all look bored. The candy thing looks dumb. Matt wanders in and Amy fakes it with Matt for a bid. Btw, why is Matt the diabetic constantly stealing candy?
The dad of the bride is super happy. They rehearse. The bride cries with dad. Dad is real proud his girl didn’t have sex before marriage.
On the wedding, Amy is taking down the decorations from weddings past. Matt notes how he’s in constant pain.
The bride heads in to the “bridal suite”. They are still making the candy store? I think this is creative editing and Molly gets the plus points for artfully shilling the Hershey sponsor.
Matt notes he’s in horrible pain. He’s on the couch noting how the pain is sucking his energy.
Bridal stuff. The bride is wearing her grandmas dress but one of the bridesmaids screws it up. Panicky, they scrub it. THAT’S NOT WORKING!!
The bridesmaids consult Amy on stains. She heads over with club soda and no one (the bride especially) seems to question her wandering in with one bottle of club soda.
Matt rolls in, noting again how much pain he’s in but he needs to check on Amy’s work because she’s nothing but his vagina to plow. Oh good god really? The candy store needed to be worked on hours before the wedding?
The bride is really into wearing Grandmas dress. Btw, the storm of the century is coming. It begins to pour.
So the bride heads out despite the rain. The groom thinks the downpour started on cue. Its really raining and thundering. It is like *pouring*. Now they are hauled into the barn and are soaked. Now the candy store and ice cream bar is opened. Caryn suggests Matt and Amy try to help the bride. There is hair dryer drying. Matt notes how horrible the bride’s situation is.
Amy reads off some lines about the bride and groom being wet. Huh, the special moment is a pretend house in the barn. Then we have the bride’s dad talking. Then slow dancing by the bride and groom. Finally the couple is thrown out by the Roloffs. There’s endless chatter. Matt notes the most important thing is pumpkin season.
Oh hey, next week where Matt and Amy discuss divorce. Ain’t that great?
