[ WIND WHISTLING ]

[ CELL PHONE BEEPS ]

Hi. It's me. Um...

I know you're in Arizona for the wedding,

but I really need...

I just wanna talk to you.

Okay? So can you please

call me back?

[ BEEPS ]

[ CRICKETS CHIRPING ]

[ MAN ] # Here in my arms

# All my dreams come true

# And we could watch [ MAN ON P.A. ] Okay,

everybody.

Let's get on the dance floor for

that Minnesota bride and groom,

Mr. and Mrs. Scott Thomas.

# Hold tight

all night through #

[ CHATTERING ] [ MAN #2

] What do you think?

# Oh, my sweet baby

This is my best day ever.

No. Best day?

Mm-hmm.

It's pretty good.

Yeah. How about you?

Is it my best day ever?

Yeah.

Excluding the bachelor party,

right?

Well...

[ CHUCKLES ]

Of course it was.

I gotta be honest though.

I'm pretty open-minded about

talking about the honeymoon.

Really?

Yeah, I am.

You and me and a bottle of red.

Deserted beach in Cabo.

I like the sound of that.

Me too.

Let's say good-bye to our

closest 75 friends and family.

Who wants a shot, baby?

[ LAUGHS ]

Come on. Little tequila

for the bride and groom?

I'm still good

with champagne, Lumpy.

Yeah, maybe when this dance

is over. Okay?

# [ DRUMS:
ROCK INTRO ]

Uh-oh.

Yeah.

It's over.

[ LAUGHS ] It sure is.

Come on. Come on.

You gotta celebrate, right?

Come on.

You only get married once.

You know, until you turn 40

and you trade in...

for the newer, sleeker,

better-looking models.

- I'm kidding.

- He's kidding.

- Okay, one time.

- All right!

- Oh!

- Oh, shit.

I thought you had...

My dress.

I'm so sorry.

It's okay!

It's okay. It's okay.

It's not a big deal.

Kristin, I'm really sorry.

I didn't...

I thought she was...

# [ MAN RAPPING ]

Kristin insisted on

this destination wedding.

I would have loved a Christmas

wedding in Minneapolis.

That would have

been lovely too.

But, you know, I told her...

that it was gonna cost

everybody a fortune...

to fly down to Phoenix.

Honestly, you can't even tell.

Will you button

the little buttons on the back?

Be careful.

You don't wanna rip

a $2,000 dress.

It was 3,000.

Does Scott know that?

Mm-mmm.

Man, I really, really hope

I didn't ruin her dress.

Oh, my God.

Would you stop it?

And even if you did,

when is she gonna wear the thing again?

I like the way you think.

That is good. [ LAUGHS ]

Oh.

Hey, man.

Thanks again for that loan.

Yeah. Sure, sure.

No, I... I mean it.

That was too much.

Well, consider it

a wedding gift, okay?

Oh, what are you talking about?

No. I'm paying you back for that.

It was way too much.

No, I'm serious. I didn't get

you a wedding gift. [ CHUCKLES ]

Take the cash.

I can't.

Take it.

Well...

Did you just kiss your tie?

No, I'm...

I've got drool.

Oh, that's charming.

Thank you.

You know the thing is...

[ STAMMERS ]

I need it.

I'll be honest with you.

It's embarrassing,

but I had no idea...

the honeymoon

was gonna cost so much,

and Rick screwed me so hard

on that commission.

Scotty, Scotty, Scotty.

Just stop.

I love you, man.

Oh, boy.

I do.

Okay.

Yeah, I do.

I wanna touch you.

Oh, come on.

I wanna get my hands on you.

[ LAUGHING ] Okay.

Okay. Is it too much?

That is too much. All right.

I got carried away.

Just man up and drink,

would you?

What is this?

I'm not even sure what it is.

Oh, my God.

You know,

I didn't say anything...

when Lumpy gargled champagne

during his toast...

or he decided to helicopter a

six-month-old during the groom's dinner.

He kept referring to himself

as "The Baby Whisperer."

No. It's not funny.

The kid vomited mashed peas

all over the lobby.
