Episode Notes
In the novel on which this episode is based, the bride to be was Detective Carella's sister. Here she is changed to the daughter of an old family friend.

Neither Norman Fell nor Gregory Walcott appear in this episode.

Darryl Hickman is the older brother of Dwayne Hickman of Dobie Gillis fame.

Episode Quotes
Carella: (to Tommy) I think she's marrying you for your industrial empire.

Carella: Why is mama going to pieces out there?
Angela: Since when has mama not gone to pieces?

Claire: Grooms can take care of themselves.
Kling: If they could take care of themselves they wouldn't be grooms.

Kling: (to Claire) Give me a nice, safe justice of the peace anytime.

The book version of this episode was good. The televised version of the book is only average. A weak and not too believable ending seals things.
