    Previously on T*K*O…

    THEPRAWNCRACKER: MrsPepper, I’m going to ask Lisa to marry me.

    BEAUREGARD: Oh I am SO throwing you a shower!

    THEPRAWNCRACKER: Lisa, my other half, my best friend in the world, will you marry me?

    Vic Romano almost laughed out loud.

    MRSPEPPER: ...Right. Well, anyway, just want to tell you two crazy kids know that we’re gonna have to move your wedding up a bit.

    And now, onto our story…

    MRSPEPPER: Sorry, but tomorrow is the only time that the T*K*O patio pagoda isn’t booked this entire year! And besides, it’s not when you wed, it’s who you wed, right?


    ThePrawnCracker and TogetherAgain giggled again. MrsPepper rolled her eyes.

    MRSPEPPER: So, like I said, tomorrow at noon, pagoda.

    THEPRAWNCRACKER: Yes sir! I mean boss, boss sir... Ma’am!

    TOGETHERAGAIN: Aww, you’re so cute when you stutter.

    MRSPEPPER: Good grief...

    The next day at noon, a decent sized crowd was gathered in the backyard of the 3976th ½ as all the friends of the newly engaged prawn and his other half. They gathered from all over the city, Nick AnythingMuppet, Judge redBoobergurl, Officers ReneeLouvier and furryredmonster, and Gonzo14, to name a few.

    ANYTHINGMUPPET: Are they here yet? Are they here yet? Did I miss it? Am I late?

    JUDGE REDBOOBERGURL: No, they’ll be here any minute!

    MRSPEPPER: Hey! Hey! None of that! It’s copyrighted material! We can’t deal with a lawsuit right now!

    VIBS: Yeah! We can barely deal with a wedding right now! Ha! I kill myself-ish.

    MRSPEPPER: Just get back there and bear those rings!

    VIBS: I can’t! They’re unbearable-ish!

    MRSPEPPER: Just go!!

    Vibs ran back inside the building, dodging Beauregard and Vic Romano.

    BEAURGEGARD: So, Vic, you’re like the... What? Caterer or something?

    VIC ROMANO: Best man.

    BEAUREGARD: What?!

    VIC ROMANO: Hey, Prawnie said that you had enough responsibility as the flower girl and wedding planner! He thought he’d give you a little less stress!

    BEAUREGARD: Whatever... I’m making’ me some fried shrimp tonight...

    The office doors burst open and a woman wearing a rather poofy bride’s maids dress stormed in.

    LEYLA: Alright, WHERE is she?!

    Beauregard hid behind Vic Romano.

    VIC ROMANO: Well? Answer her!

    BEAUREGARD: You do it! You’re obviously the best man for the job!

    VIC ROMANO: Um... Ma’am? Who is she?

    LEYLA: The blushing bride!

    Both Vic Romano and Beauregard pointed to the office down the hall.

    LEYLA: Thank you. Leyla walked to the office.

    VIC ROMANO: Scary chick.

    BEAUREGARD: You should see her writing.

    *Commercial Break*

    inside the office, Vibs bounced around TogetherAgain like a schoolgirl, and Leyla barges in.

    TOGETHERAGAIN: Leyla! You made it!

    TogetherAgain ran to hug Leyla. Leyla stood stiff as a board and glared at TogetherAgain.

    TOGETHERAGAIN: What’s wrong?

    LEYLA: I’d like to see you try and put on a bride’s maids dress inside an airplane bathroom!

    TOGETHERAGAIN: Oh, um, sorry about that.

    Leyla let’s out a deep, aggravated sigh.

    LEYLA: That’s okay Lisa... How could I be mad at you on your wedding day?!

    TOGETHERAGAIN: I could tell you that I forgot to buy you a plane ticket home.

    LEYLA: ...

    TOGETHERAGAIN: Just kidding! Now c’mon! I’ve got to get married!

    Leyla, Vibs, and TogetherAgain left the office and went out into the main area where Beauregard waited.

    BEAUREGARD: Well it’s about time! They’re almost ready to start! Leyla, get out there!

    Leyla hugged TogetherAgain and ran outside to take her place at the alter where ThePrawnCracker, Vic Romano, and Bill Bubble Guy were standing.

    FATHER MARTY: Ah, good, we’re all here. Now, if we’ll all rise.

    Everyone in the audience rose.

    FATHER MARTY: Now stretch out those achy muscles, you know you want to!

    The crowd paused for a moment, then did as Father Marty said.

    OFFICER RENNELOUVIER: What a weirdo...

    OFFICER FURRYREDMONSTER: You can’t say that! He’s a preacher!

    ANYTHINGMUPPET: That never stopped us before.

    FATHER MARTY: And be seated.

    The crowd sat down.

    FATHER MARTY: And now for the wedding march. On the organ we have the incomparable MrsPepper.

    MRSPEPPER: What?! Vic, you’re responsible for this, aren’t you?!

    VIC ROMANO: Well I felt bad for the happy couple! They needed an organ player since you had to move there wedding!

    MrsPepper muttered and made her way to the organ.

    MRSPEPPER: I don’t even know how to play the organ!

    LEYLA: Oh, it’s simple really, I think it may actually come naturally to Canadians.

    Vic Romano leaned over to ThePrawnCracker.

    VIC ROMANO: Can she say that?

    THEPRAWNCRACKER: She is the maid of honor! I say we honor her words.

    MrsPepper began to play the organ, badly. The pseudo-wedding march filled the outdoor porch as Beauregard skipped down the aisle tossing flowers out his basket.

    BEAUREGARD: Couldn’t you just eat me up?

    ANYTHINGMUPPET: That was hypothetical, wasn’t it?

    OFFICER FURRYREDMONSTER: I hope so, I’m a vegetarian.

    Behind Beauregard came Vibs, who picked up all of the flowers Beauregard dropped.

    VIBS: What? He can’t be the flower girl and the janitor!

    The doors opened ominously and TogetherAgain stepped out in her wedding dress and veil covering her eyes. The wedding march continued to play as she walked down the aisle and the crowd rose from their seats again.

    JUDGE REDBOOBERGURL: Isn’t her father supposed to walk down with her, you know, to give her away?

    ANYTHINGMUPPET: I don’t think the parents were invited.

    JUDGE REDBOOBERGURL: Well, why ever not?

    ANYTHINGMUPPET: Would you want your parents here when you married him?

    FATHER MARTY: Please be seated so we can get this thing over with.

    The crowd sat down as TogetherAgain stood at the alter with ThePrawnCracker.

    FATHER MARTY: The rings if you please.

    The doors opened again, but this time no one came out.

    THEPRAWNCRACKER: You did appoint a ring bearer, didn’t you?

    TOGETHERAGAIN: Me? That was your job!

    THEPRAWNCRACKER: Uh oh. Sheesh, where’s Snowth when you need him...

    Vibs stood up from her seat.

    VIBS: I’ll get them!

    Vibs stormed out of the chapel and walked back in bearing the rings. She walked up the aisle and held the ring pillow out to ThePrawnCracker.


    FATHER MARTY: Very good. Now, repeat after me, TogetherAgain, with this ring, I do thee wed.

    THEPRAWNCRACKER: TogetherAgain, with this ring, I do thee wed.

    FATHER MARTY: TogetherAgain, take the ring please.

    TogetherAgain took her ring off the pillow as well.

    FATHER MARTY: Repeat, ThePrawnCracker, with this ring, I do thee wed.

    TOGETHERAGAIN: ThePrawnCracker, with this ring, I do thee wed.

    FATHER MARTY: Good, halfway done. Now for the boring part... Mind if I just skip ahead to the good stuff?


    TOGETHERAGAIN: Is half Prawnie.

    THEPRAWNCRACKER: Is half Lisa.

    FATHER MARTY: Anyway... Do you Ryan, take Lisa as your lawful wedded wife? To love and to hold, to honor and to cherish, through sickness and in health?


    FATHER MARTY: Really? Hmm. Well, do you Lisa, take Ryan as your lawfully wedded husband? To love and to hold, to honor and to cherish, through sickness and in health?


    THEPRAWNCRACKER: Lisa... What’s wrong?

    TOGETHERAGAIN: Who’s Ryan?

    ThePrawnCracker smiled, and TogetherAgain turned back to Father Marty.


    the doors slammed open and Pepe the King Prawn stood in the doorway, panting.

    PEPE: Hold jour horses!

    THEPRAWNCRACKER: ...Pep... Pep... Pepe....

    ThePrawnCracker collapsed.


    PEPE: Si?


    PEPE: Dat is what I came to talk to jou about, hokay? Jou said jou would marry de prawn cracker, and I say, I am de prawn cracker. Now c’mon, let’s get married, hokay?

    TOGETHERAGAIN: ...What are you talking about? I’m marrying Prawnie!

    PEPE: Si, I am Prawnie, hokay?

    TOGETHERAGAIN: I am not marrying you.

    PEPE: Well den jou can’t marry him either, he stole my name, hokay? It would be a falsified wedding certificate, hokay? Not a good t’ing.

    TOGETHERAGAIN: ...But... But I love him...

    MRSPEPPER: Do you, Lisa? Do you really?

    TOGETHERAGAIN: Well... I... I thought I did.

    MRSPEPPER: I think you just love Prawnie-

    PEPE: Dat es me.

    MRSPEPPER: I think you just love Ryan because he’s such a great friend. You two can still be each other’s other halves, even if you’re not married.

    PEPE: Si, dis es true.

    MRSPEPPER: Will you shut up?

    TOGETHERAGAIN: I think you’re right MrsPepper...

    MRSPEPPER: I know, that prawn never stops talking!

    TOGETHERAGAIN: No, not about that, about the wedding. The wedding’s cancelled everyone!

    FATHER MARTY: I still get paid, don’t I?

    TOGETHERAGAIN: That’s Pepper’s position.

    PEPE: Nice alliterations, hokay?


    *Commercial Break*

    the crowd muttered and began to exit the patio pagoda. After a few minutes, all that remained outside were Beauregard, TogetherAgain, and the collapsed ThePrawnCracker.

    BEAUREGARD: After all my hard work as the wedding planner-

    TOGETHERAGAIN: Slash flower girl.

    BEAUREGARD: Slash flower girl, and this is how you thank me? By canceling the wedding?!

    TOGETHERAGAIN: Sorry Beau, it had to be done. I’m not ready for that kind of commitment yet.

    BEAUREGARD: That’s what they all say! Fine! You know what? I’m just gonna go eat the cake!

    Beauregard left the patio pagoda area, and TogetherAgain shook her head. She looked down at ThePrawnCracker who was beginning to regain consciousness.

    THEPRAWNCRACKER: Ugh... What happened?

    TOGETHERAGAIN: A disgruntled prawn came in and ruined our wedding.

    THEPRAWNCRACKER: ...Figures. So... We’re not getting married.

    TOGETHERAGAIN: Nope. Not now at least.

    THEPRAWNCRACKER: Bummer... So... You wanna go write more ‘The Time The Muppets Beat Time’?

    The wedding of... Or the wedding that... Never happened?
    That was pretty anti-climactic...

    Very funny schtuff here, especially with Pepe ruining the wedding. Bo's gonna eat the cake huh? Fine, it's the Swedish Chef's special pineapple oopsy-daisy cake, made with only the finest ingredients for grouch cuisine.

    And there's one line that was especially funny... Bo: "Couldn't you just eat me up?" Never have I been so wanting for Aunt DandDan to make a cameo appearance and eat one of his/her/its own relatives from its own side of the family. This was one of the better episodes this season... Post more, if there are any more left that is.

    Whoo hoo! Everyone was so fun. I love how Beau was sooooo girly! Leyla's appearance was really cute... Pepe was great! But I'm sad that you guys didn't go through with it. Honestly? I am. False advertising!!! >< But I loved it, great episode. Prawnie you are a great writer and I'm so glad that you're on the staff!

    p.s. I actually do know how to play a piano/organ :p For future reference. So, when in happens in real life, I would be honoured to actually play the wedding march. :D

    HA! Okay PepperPupil, you're slated for the organist at the actual wedding. :p We'll be in touch. ;)

    Boy, ever since that jerk Number One had me fired, I missed out on a lot... I would've gotten to meet Bill Barretta, Steve Whitmire, and the ghost of Richard Hunt if I had still been around for the war, not to mention that fact that Kathy didn't show up for the party until AFTER it had ended.

    You know Prawnie, you may not realize it, but I detect another hidden M*A*S*H reference... when Margaret had her wedding at the 4077th, Radar had been assigned to play the piano and he did a pretty lousy job - though he was playing "Here Comes the Bride" he was hitting a bad note every other key!

    HAHAHA Hilarious. I loved the whole sequence but I think my favourite line was "I still get paid don't I?"

    BTW also great reference to Kendra's vegetarian practice. :)
