Stan Stan Stanford? Yeah.
You believe that dumb jock who would do his physics papers on hockey pucks is now president and founder of Offside Software, the hottest commodities trading software on the market? Genie's marrying Stan, and I'm catering the wedding.
Who are you? We're the caterers.
Steadman, U.
Marshal Service.
Head of security for the wedding.
We walk some more, we see the happy friends and famil Oh I know he's a marshall, but he cannot possibly wear that suit tomorrow, okay? Please don't even start, Scott.
I will have a breakdown.
Oh, that must be the caterer.
We have to add another eight for the reception.
Gary! It's wonderful your being here to help at the last minute.
I didn't know if you'd be able to come in person.
Oh, well Everything all right in here, Mrs.
Berlatski? Yes, thank you Inspector.
Well, what's, uh, with the, uh, security? Alex is testifying at one of those RICO hearings.
My husband, the hero.
Genie did not want him to do it because of the wedding.
But you know Alex.
They've been hiding him in some hideous hotel for the past three weeks.
Well, will Mr.
Berlatski be at the, uh, the wedding? He'll be so happy to see you, Gary.
I'll, I'll be very happy to see him.
Isn't it something, Genie getting married? Yeah.
I'm sure she'll be very happy.
You know, Alex and I always thought we always hoped that it would be you walking Genie down the aisle.
You were so good for her.
Well, Genie's Gee, Mrs.
Berlatski, you know, I should call the restaurant and let them know that we have eight extra guests coming.
Um, I'll, I'll talk to you soon.
Yeah, the, uh, phone would be down this way.
Gary! Hi! Another eight? Oh, sure.
No problem.
I'll tell Gorin.
Um Don't forget to tell Chuck we need three extra temp waiters, and don't forget to finalize the guest list.
Whoa, hang on.

Oh, here's your pen.
Thank you.
Thank you.
Genie? Gary! How are you? How are you? Fine.
How are you doing? Good to see you.
Oh, it's good to see you, too.
Uh, I didn't think you were going to be able to come by.
Chuck said that you've been so busy.
Uh, Chuck overstates things a little bit.
Look, uh, every caterer in town was booked.
I hope you don't mind doing this.
Of course not.
You really don't mind? No, I don't mind.
I'm very happy for you.
Any closer, you two guys could sell tickets for this.
Isn't this wonderful, sweetie? Gary's here.
Oh, absolutely.
You did good.
Oh, I guess I would have to agree with you on that.
Isn't this sweet? It's your own little reunion, sweetheart.
Stan, I just realized something awful.
We haven't arranged for anybody to pick up your Uncle Bob tomorrow at the train station.
Oh, that's terrific.
Honey, send a limo.
Genie, I haven't seen the man in 20 years.
Okay? He's my only relative coming to the wedding.
I'd pick him up myself, but I-I have to be at the hairdresser.
And we have got the photographer at, uh I'll go pick him up.
That is so thoughtful of you, Gary.
Thank you.
That's very nice.
Well, it's nothing.
You're a prince, Gary.
But then I guess you do have a lot of free time on your hands.
I'm sure that Gary has a lot of important things to attend to.
Actually, I need to get the final guest list Oh! so we can go over it.
And you're sure this catering business of yours, this isn't interfering with the restaurant? Gare, look, I know you're new to the restaurant game, okay? I know what I'm doing.
The wedding reception is 150 people and is a captive audience.
Now, I guess the, uh, bride- and groom-to-be are gonna show up here, huh? They're bringing by the guest list and Genie wants to see the, uh restaurant.
Well, not only is she getting married, but she's, uh, rubbing your face in it.
Let me tell you something Gary, great place.
Genie! Hey, here's the list.
Thanks, Stan.
It's a nice suit.
You look sharp.
Uh, can I get you a drink? No, thank you.
I love this place.
Very impressive list.
Oh, this is the kitchen, obviously, and that back there is where we put the office.
And where they're preparing the food for tomorrow.
Looks good.
Hey, uh what happened with your dad? Oh, well, his accounting firm was doing the books for this big construction union, and he caught them dipping into the pension funds.
So He keeps telling me all the security isn't necessary, but I think he's just trying to make me feel better.
Thank you.
Well, I'm sure everything's gonna be fine.
Yeah, I'm sure he will.
So, Chuck said you live upstairs.
Is that right? Yeah, upstairs.
Live upstairs.
Do you want to see? Yeah, I really would.
This is it.
Your basic bachelor pad? Well, yeah.
Well, no, it's not You know, occasionally.
Wow, it's really great.
My place is like a total archeological dig.
And I still have all those letters you wrote me, from, like, ten years ago.
You're kidding.
They were so beautiful, Gary.
I couldn't just throw them away.
Well, you're getting married, you know Yeah.
Stan- I love Stan.
Well, Stan's a good guy.
But, uh, he's not exactly the romantic type.
And a girl needs a little romance every once in a while.
Even if it is just from an old letter.
Well, yeah, you know, those letters that I wrote, they, uh You loved me so much.
Yeah, I did, but that was a long time ago.
I used to think maybe we made a mistake breaking up.
But we were too much alike.
Neither one of us knew where we were going.
Well, we were 19 years old.
Well, you know what I mean.
Stan is so together.
And I actually finally feel like I have a sense of direction.
But I just wish- Your letters, Gary I practically memorized them.
Well, th-that's flattering.
"I'll be around in the dark.
" Huh? "I'll be everywhere, wherever you look.
" It was so powerful, you know.
You know, Hen Henry Fonda said that and-and-and John Steinbeck wrote that.
I didn't write that.
I knew that.
Well, so let's go downstairs, huh? Stevie Unger.
Don't tell me.
He's working on a cure for cancer.
Genie, honey, I'm sorry.
Turns out, I am gonna have to go back to the office.
I'll drop you at home on the way.
You promised me you weren't gonna work tonight.
I'm sorry, honey, but I don't have much of a choice.
Chuckie, I'm counting on you, man.
Don't short me on those hors d'oeuvres.
Whatever you say, Stanley.
Bye, Gary.
I always hated that guy.
Huh? Oh.
That's it for the main courses! Move to the church! Dessert team, you're up next! Come on, people! We've got a wedding in a couple of hours.
Stephens Church was the scene of tragedy "Saturday afternoon when assassins bullets took down "Alexander Berlatski "and his daughter Genie.
"Berlatski, a protected witness set to testify "against corruption in the construction business, came out "of seclusion in order to attend his daughter's wedding.
"Earlier this week, Berlatski said, "'In spite of the personal risk, I believe the state "'deserves an honest "'and accountable construction industry.
"'I will do everything in my power to see that "the wrongs of the past are corrected.
' "Alex Berlatski was pronounced dead on arrival "at Chicago Hope Hospital.
"His daughter is in intensive care "but is expected to survive.
No charges have been filed.
" So what are you gonna do? I don't know.
I got to pick up Stan's Uncle Bob in an hour.
Uh, no, Gare, don't look at me, okay? I'm a little busy here, you know? Hey, listen to me.
This, uh, this mad Bulgarian Gorin's got everything taken care of here.
This is important, you understand? Hey, it's bad enough that Stan's looking down his nose at me 'cause I'm a caterer.
Now I got to be his car service, too? No way, Gare! I don't think so! Taxi! Shagin, Robert, Colonel.
Fishman, Chuck, Caterer.
We got a wedding to get to.
My pleasure.
Right over here.
What did you say your name was? Hobson.
Gary Hobson.
Look, I'm not accusing anybody.
I'm just saying that I saw a gun.
You saw a gun in the vestry? That's right.
We'll check it out.
Now! I mean, I-I really think that y- you should check it out now.
It was right here.
Next to the Bible? Well, no, the Bible was over here.
The-the, it was Hey.
Steadman, now wait a second.
Look, I'm not making this up.
You and the bride, you had something going on, right? Well, yeah.
You otherwise attached? No.
Look, I'd like to see her get married.
And the daddy would like that, and so would Mom.
In fact, the only one who doesn't want her to get married is Gary Hobson.
Am I wrong? Wait a second.
You think I'm doing this because I don't want to see them get married? Yeah, I do.
You don't understand.
There's gonna be trouble here today, big trouble.
No, there's not, because I'm here.
You're not listening, Steadman.
Hey, the only trouble I'm getting is coming from you.
And that is Get the point? Garnish, people, garnish! The guy ignored me.
You accused a priest, Gary.
Oh, yeah, I know.
Believe me, I know.
Well, he didn't totally ignore you.
Our guys from the church called, and everything slowed down because Steadman had metal detectors put on the doors.
We've only got a couple of hours before the wedding.
So me and my partner, we have this restaurant.
It's called McGinty's.
I don't know if you've ever heard of it.
Ah, it's a great place- very happening, lots of chicks.
I knew a guy bought a restaurant.
Steak so tender, you could cut it with a fork.
Between the health department and the IRS, he went belly-up inside a year.
Blew his brains out in the meat locker.
Poor son of a bitch.
Wow, that's, uh that's terrible.
Excuse me.
Hold on for a second.
I'm telling you, I think this Father Mark's in on it, but I need proof.
You kidding? Chuck, I need time.
Stan's not gonna start the ceremony until his Uncle Bob shows up.
So what you got to do is, you got to delay Uncle Bob.
How? Just do it! I don't know how you're gonna do it.
Just do it.
Just take the Van Buren Street Bridge.
What the hell is going on? You got a problem, General?! You're damn right I do! Well, why don't you get off your fat butt and help me pick it up, then?! Go! Move it! This guy's a menace.
Now I got to deal with G.
Joe with a attitude here.
Oh, come on, let's go! Here you go.
Yes? The drop is at 12:30.
We do the drop at 12:30.
God bless you, Father.
God bless you, too.
I want them set up all over the church.
You got it.
Listen, I got to talk to you.
Let me guess.
The priest is acting suspicious again.
Oh, yes, he is.
Get a date.
Huh? Get a life.
Get out.
No, no, no.
Steadman, you don't understand.
You don't- Steadman, you don't understand! Excuse me.
Stead- no.
Steadman! You Genie, Genie.
Listen, Genie, I got to talk to you about this wedding.
Now, there's something that you What's wrong? Gary, I think I'm making a terrible mistake.
You think you, you He was at his desk until 2:00 in the morning last night.
Well, he works hard.
But Gary, if I asked you who you were, what would you say? Gary Hobson.
Stan is the president of Offside Software.
He's the junior chairman of the club.
He's the 164th richest man in Chicago.
But he is hardly ever just Stan.
And when he is, it's good.
Well, you wanted someone who was going somewhere, you found him.
I mean, when you, you and I were together, Gary, we were just ourselves, weren't we? Hey, look, Genie, I mean, we-we were different.
Well, you've known me since we were kids.
Huh? Am I making a mistake marrying Stan? You know what I think? You should postpone the wedding.
Really? Yeah.
You know, just-just for a few days.
Just until you have time to-to, you know, think things through a little bit.
You really think so? I really think it would be better for everybody.
I think you should postpone the wedding.
I- I-I-I-I-I, I really think so.
I really do.
All right.
Do whatever you can.
Did you hear that? I'll get the fire escape.
I'm gonna find him.
Yeah, so we watch our overhead.
We keep it low.
Find the right market niche, you know? I mean, there's also the franchise angle.
McGinty's all over the state.
Maybe even McGinty's all over the country.
It's not gonna be a Fortune 500 company, but the growth potential is there.
You know what I mean? Sure, sure.
Like uh, Martha Stewart.
You find your base, you become a monster, and then you expand.
Bottom line is, a man's gotta do what he's good at.
Like Joseph Campbell.
Follow your bliss.
It's clear.
It is.
The traffic, it's clear.
Let's go.
Move it.
Oh, oh, yeah.
Okay, let's go.
Let's go! Right.
Would you, would you like another sandwich to go? I'm full.
Move it.
Come on.
No problem.
Maybe a soda or something? We're late.
Oh, all right.
Chicago diocese employment records.
Enter search terms.
I can't believe you're making me hack into the diocese files.
It's like breaking into church, Gary.
Well, this is very important.
I know, I know.
What? Hey, Stan, what are you doing here? You told Genie she should postpone the wedding, didn't you? Now, look, Stan, this is for your own good.
You gotta believe me.
You don't know what's good for us.
Why are you meddling in our lives? What gives you the right? Stan, what if I told you there was gonna be a shooting.
Oh, yeah.
Steadman told me about that ploy.
This is pretty desperate, Gary.
I mean, you really want Genie that badly? Stan, I don't want Genie.
I want you to be married and very happy.
Well, you certainly have a bizarre way of showing that.
Now, Stan, if you could just put off this wedding for a couple of days.
Just let everything cool down.
I don't want to cool down.
I love her, and I want to marry her.
And you will.
I have been working my ass off for ten years, Gary, to become the kind of guy that Genie would want to marry.
So this wedding is gonna happen, and if you try and stop it, I swear to God I guess she's still got a thing for you, Gary.
I don't know if it's me or cold feet.
Well, here are the "R's.
" There's uh, Ritkes, Rivera Rossignuolo.
No Romanow.
Guess you're right.
Father Mark isn't who he says he is.
I gotta get Inspector Steadman to pay attention, Marissa.
Well, has the headline changed? No, it's the same Marissa.
What? The traffic jam story's gone.
What does it say? "Traffic Accident Kills Restauranteur.
"A traffic accident at the corner of Hutchings and 7th "took the life of Chuck Fishman at 1:07 p.
yesterday, "when a large truck lost control of its brakes "and collided with Fishman's car.
"Gary Hobson, Fishman's business partner "said, 'Chicago has lost a fine citizen.
I've lost my best friend.
'" Listen to me.
You get Chuck on the cell phone, all right? Come on, Chuck, answer the phone.
Cellular phone services temporarily unavailable.
Please try your It's five after 1:00.
Can't you take a side street, or something? Will you relax? The wedding will never start on time, not with all that security.
What? A couple of U.
marshals? Please.
Are you nuts? It's like the Pope is in town.
They're checking everybody's IDs.
Plus, you have to go through a metal detector.
What? I forgot to pick up Stan's gift.
What the hell was I thinking? Well, by all means, let's stop and get those crazy kids their present.
Stop the car.
I'll call the store.
All right.
Uh, take your time, Colonel Bob.
There's no rush.
Seven after.
Here we are.
One of Chicago's finer department stores.
Is this it? Thanks a lot.
Okay? Thanks for your help, Chuck.
That's my mission, Colonel Uncle Bob.
Chuck! Again! I've seen better brakes on tricycle! Hey, you all right? You all right? Yeah, I'm okay.
Look, you were in the paper.
I don't have time to explain.
Oh, look here, it's Cinderella and his ugly step-sister.
You stalking me, weenie boy? Let me take care of this.
Who the hell you think you're talking to, sausage head? Oh, sau Well, you kiss my Polish butt, eh? Yeah? That'd be like kissing the Sears Tower.
Oh, you know what? That's enough.
You and me, we can Hey, who's with the truck? I need a report now.
Okay, okay, okay.
You with the Supra, you're next.
Does this look like a Supra to you, officer? Taxi! Whatever it is.
I don't care.
I would not describe this Look, I'll see you later.
You have a good day, huh? Bye.
Hey, Uncle, Uncle Bob? My name is Gary, and uh, well, I'll be going with you to the wedding.
Have a seat.
Station A, report.
We have Berlatski on standby.
What's the holdup? We can't start without Uncle Bob.
We have a relative situation.
Stand by.
Gary, finally.
And you must be Uncle Bob.
Ah, yes.
I'm sorry I'm late.
It's a pleasure to meet you.
How sweet.
Station B, proceed Berlatski to the church.
Hey, listen, listen to me.
I, I got proof that Father Mark's a fake.
The girl is getting married.
Give it up.
Here's a printout from the diocese of all the priests in the Chicago area.
There is no Father Mark Romanow.
Come on.
This man is delusional.
Delusional? Huh.
I'm telling you, I saw the gun in that drawer.
I also saw this guy over at the water tower with two other guys that also had guns.
And when they got done talking, they started chasing me around.
I uh, think this is what you're looking for.
FBI Special Agent Romanow.
No way.
What about the water tower? What about it? All right, pal, what about the package you're handing back and forth, huh? None of your business.
It's my business.
It was wedding invitations.
I wanted two guys undercover in the guests.
Hey, this is my case.
Berlatski is my witness.
Oh, yeah, you guys have some record protecting witnesses.
Oh, what the hell is that supposed to mean? Hey, guys, you gonna stop this wedding, or you want me to do it myself, huh? Your boogeyman is a fed.
You just ran out of excuses, okay? Two agencies of the federal government are gonna make sure this girl gets married safe and sound.
And And you take one step inside that church, and you are going directly to jail.
For what? For being pathetic.
Now, get lost.
Listen, let me tell you something.
If you think that I'm gonna No, you don't tell me anything.
You just keep Okay Mr.
Berlatski Mr.
Berlatski! What did I tell you? You are gone.
Station A, you have a go.
Gary! Hey! Oh, man, you are not gonna believe what happened to me today.
It's been one disaster after What's wrong with you? They wouldn't listen to me.
Who? What do you mean who? I'll tell you who.
Half the What? "20 Dead In Bomb Blast.
" Oh, no.
"Major explosion tore through "St.
Stephen's Church yesterday.
"Survivors report that the explosion occurred just as the couple were declared husband and wife.
" Sit.
I think I know where the bomb is.
And you were the delivery boy.
I'm telling you, the man is a cold-blooded assassin.
I was taking career advice from a professional killer.
Uncle Bob? Yeah.
Why do you think I was so late, huh? When the cops pulled me over to fill out the accident report, they found a gun in my car.
It took me a half an hour to explain to him that it wasn't my gun.
Who else was in the car besides me? Uncle Bob.
Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to celebrate the unity of Genie and Stan.
That gift he arranged to pick up, Gare, it had to be the bomb.
So nobody knew what Uncle Bob looked like, so they-they replaced Uncle Bob with a hit man.
I delivered a bomb.
It had to have been his gun.
Christ abundantly blesses this love.
He has already consecrated you in baptism.
And now, He enriches and strengthens you by a special sacrament, so that you may assume the duties of marriage in mutual and lasting fidelity.
Since it is your intention to enter into marriage, join your right hands and declare your consent before God and His church.
A bomb? Yeah.
In the church? In a wedding gift? That's right.
And you know this because? Look, because We have our sources.
Does your source have a name? Well We can't disclose that presently.
Oh, okay, I understand.
Hobson, I'm gonna take care of you.
Thank you very much.
DiMaio! Now, listen, this Uncle Bob, whoever he is, he's gonna try to escape before the bomb goes off, so you might want to have someone look around.
He says one more word, protective custody.
Thank you.
Wait a minute! The man is trying to tell Both of them.
Heads up.
I want another face check of that crowd.
You're looking for known offenders.
Stan and Genie, have you come here freely and without reservation to give yourselves to each other in marriage? Yes.
I really do need an answer.
All right, let's go, fellas.
Do you, Stan, take Genie to be your wife? To have and to hold, from this day forward, for better or for worse Yes, I do, Father.
Well, I haven't quite gotten there yet.
Do you, Genie, take Stan to be your husband? Okay, hold it steady.
Keep it straight.
Uh, we're the, uh, caterers.
That's a beautiful ensemble you've got on.
The stripes and, uh Okay, fellas, let's go.
All right, you know what to do.
You know where to take it.
You know where to go.
What do you mean, "stay"? Hey, wait a minute.
My company! I'm the boss! May the Lord bless these rings which you give to each other as a sign of your enduring love.
Excuse me.
Genie, take this ring as a sign of my enduring love.
Hey! It's him! I wouldn't do that if I were you.
Been waiting for you, Eldridge.
Thank you, Father.
And now, by the powers vested in me by the church and the state of Illinois Everybody! Everybody out of the church! There's a bomb! Everybody out! No.
No! No! Out of the church! Where's Uncle Bob? Where was he sitting? Over there.
Freeze! Listen, Steadman, you have got to believe me.
There's a bomb in one of these packages.
Right, Hobson.
Open it up.
All right, all right.
LeFevre, listen up.
In case there really is a bomb here, you have to clear the street, hold the traffic and find me a containment site.
Yes, sir.
All right, it's, it's got to be in one of these.
Steadman your turn.
Holy Mother of Open the door now.
