Love, Wedding, Marriage

Synopsis: Handsome, romantic, sexy gentile Charlie enjoys his honeymoon with liberal-Jewish marriage counselor Ava. It's cut short when her parents Bradley and Betty, who always seemed the perfect couple, suddenly border on divorce over an old affair and poorly matched expectations. Worse, in turn they invite themselves to move in and drive the newly-weds crazy. Ethics prevent Ava from taking them on as clients and the colleagues she refers to prove hopelessly inept. Meanwhile Charlie's impulsive buddy Gerber, the eternal bachelor party animal, has married Polish green-card-chaser Kasia.

- If your father's so great,

why didn't you marry him?

- He wasn't available.

- I want you to think back

to when you first met.

What attracted you

to one another?

And I want you to make a list

of all of the qualities

that made you want

to get married.

The key to a successful marriage

is to find those qualities

that make you fall in love

with your spouse

all over again

every day.

- Oh, I know they're here


Where are they?


- Shelby, what are you doing?

- Where do you keep

all your stuff?

- What stuff?

- The meds!

- I'm a psychologist,

not a psychiatrist.

I can't prescribe meds.

- Jesus, Ava.

That's the only reason

I took this job.

- I'm not even sure

they've invented a drug

to begin tackling your issues.

- Don't judge my pain.

You're my sister.

Can't you at least

refer me to someone?

- If I referred you

to a psychiatrist,

they'd have you committed.

- Would there be meds involved?

- And a straightjacket.

Did you mail out

those invitations for me?

- For Mom and Dad's

surprise party?

- Yes.

- I got the guest list

right here.

- Thank you.

[Man and woman

arguing indistinctly]

Glad that's not my next client.


- Darlings.

- Hi.

- Hi.

What was all the yelling about?

- Just your mother's

normal kvetching.

- Oh, would you stop

talking like that?

This isn't a production

of Fiddler On The Roof.

- Would you just relax

and stop acting like

some kind of meshuggener

in front of our daughters?

- What does that even mean?


- Jewish.

- Okay, can we just take this

into my office, please?

Right into my office.

Thank you.

Come on.

All right.

Bradley, Betty,

why don't you calmly express

what's upsetting you?

- Well, I didn't want to have

to tell you this, Ava...

- No, Betty.
