David Maria wedding 01
Cast Part 1: Bob presides over David and Maria's wedding. After the couple says "I do", the minister instructs the groom to place the ring on the bride's finger. David looks confused, so Bob tells him it's the round thing in his pocket. After some searching, David produces a pizza: it's round and it was in his pocket. Bob clarifies that it also has to have a hole in it, so David pulls out an inflated bicycle tube. Bob adds an additional caveat: it has to be much smaller than that. David next finds a doughnut in his pocket, but Bob says it has to be smaller still.

David, very frail now, is convinced he's finally found the ring, but all he's got is a lifebuoy. Maria, also shaking with age, says that she's had it after 73 years and announces she's leaving him. Affording him one more chance, David finds a wedding band on the floor and places it on Maria's finger. Bob announces the couple married just as they all collapse from geriatric fatigue.
