While clearing out her closet to make room for Steve, D.J. finds her late husbands' special occasion suit. Jackson gets upset when he sees his mother just giving away his fathers suit to Goodwill. Steve advises D.J. to let Jackson process things before trying to talk to him.
As D.J., Stephanie, Kimmy, Ramona, Max, Tommy, Fernando, and Jimmy head off to the engagement party held at the Yacht Club at Fishermans Wharf, Steve stays behind to talk to Jackson. Max deduces that Steve want to hang back to avoid meeting the Gibblers. Steve reasures Jackson that he loves D.J. and her boys - he wants to be accepted in the family. Steve gives Jackson a special gift. After waiting another twenty minutes, Steve eventually heads off to the party.
Jackson arrives at the party wearing his fathers suit that Steve gave to him after he had it tailored to fit him. Jackson tells Steve there's no one he'd rather have marry his mother. Joey, D.J., Stephanie, Kimmy, Jackson, Ramona, Max, Tommy, Fernando, Steve, and Jimmy all raise glasses and toast "to family, the ones you're born into, and the ones you make". With Kimmy adding "And the ones you dress up like". Cheers!
Steve babysits Tommy and Dani while D.J., Stephanie, Kimmy, and Fernando attend the Lower Nob Hill Bridal Expo. He enquires as to how auditions for Ramona and Jackson's High School musical play "Pippin" went. Ramona believes she killed it, and Jackson was requested to speak and sing by the director. Steve and Max play a game of chess. Steve wins with his trademarked Steve Hale Four-Move Checkmate. Max storms off in a huff.
Steve makes Tommy a sandwich who politely requests no crust. Max is convinced Steve only won their chess match because he didn't know Steve could play. Steve reminds Jackson and Ramona that they need to get to the wedding expo. Tommy advises Steve that there's crust on his sandwich.
Max and Steve play another game of chess. Max wins the re-match. Max apologises for being a sore loser.
It's Thanksgiving day. Steve arrives outside Jackson and Max's bedroom with his microwave. D.J. explains that Stephanie is making Thanksgiving dinner without any of their traditional dishes. D.J. Jackson, and Max have set up an alternate pirate kitchen and are cooking their own Thanksgiving meal. It started with cheesy potatoes but then Jackson wanted green bean casserole, and Max wanted brown sugar sweet potatoes. And D.J. had to make her mother's picture-perfect pumpkin pie. They have a ham marinating in the bathtub and D.J. is making a green salad.
After Stephanie backs Joey's car into the side of the house, Tommy comes in with a shocked look and remarks "There's a car in the kitchen". D.J, Steve, Jackson, and Max come to see what the loud crash was. D.J. is happy Stephanie isn't hurt, and takes partial blame for the incident. Fernando, Kimmy, Ramona, and Jimmy perform a dance number to America as D.J., Stephanie, Jackson, Max, Tommy, and Steve watch.
D.J., Stephanie, Kimmy, Jackson, Ramona, Max, Tommy, Fernando, Steve, Jimmy, Danny, Jesse, Joey, and Dani eat dinner in the living room. D.J. knows she makes a really big deal about traditions but for her Thanksgiving is about the people you love. She promises to make way for new traditions. Stephanie and Jimmy give Dani her first piece of solid food, pumpkin puree.
While Fernando, Steve, and Jimmy are binge watching The Fast and the Furious 1 through 8, Stephanie kicks them out of the house so she can have some alone time. She tells them they have tuxedo fittings at the Bridal Shop. As the guys race out the front door they do a Fast and the Furious howl.
When Fernando, Steve, and Jimmy step out of the dressing rooms, Berta likes the tuxedos that Fernando and Steve picked out, but not Jimmy's. Steve suggests they all have one cohesive look for the wedding. Fernando wants to go with his tuxedo because it expresses class and elegance. Jimmy wants to go with his tuxedo because it expresses individuality and hides his problem areas. Berta thinks they should go with Steve's tuxedo because it's perfection. Steve suggest they need to call someone with style, with panache, and brutal honesty. They call Max.
Berta is highly offended when Max calls her signature tuxedo the worst of all. So Berta decides not to let the guys have any tuxedos and she will also be cancelling D.J., Stephanie, and Kimmy's wedding dresses. Jimmy texts Stephanie who rushes to the shop.
Stephanie tells Max to apologise to Berta for hurting her feelings. When he doesn't, Stephanie explains to Berta she knows it's probably just another tux, another, dress, another wedding to her. But not for Stephanie who thought it would never happen. This will be the day she gets to marry the love of her life alongside her sister and best friend who gave her the baby she never thought she'd have. Berta's not impressed but Max is moved by Stephanie's speech. Max apologises not only in English but in Russian too. Berta accepts the apology, and lets everybody have their tuxedos and dresses.
Every year Uncle Monty's holds a sandwich-eating contest, where the owner competes against a customer for free sandwiches. For years Uncle Monty was unbeatable. Until a customer came along with an appetite even bigger than Uncle Monty himself; Berkowitz. Now that Steve, Fernando, Jimmy, and family own the shop, one of them has to take Berkowitz on to try and reclaim the coveted Golden Sub trophy.
Stephanie officiates as Kimmy, Jackson, Ramona, Fernando, Steve, and Matt participate in an eat-off. The winner will have to the honour to represent Uncle Monty’s Sandwich Emporium. Stephanie believes with Jimmy out of town the obvious winner will be Jackson. Fernando agrees with Stephanie. Steve thinks he'll win because he is famous for eating sandwiches. Ramona believes she has just as much chance of winning than any of them. At the conclusion of the eat-off, everyone is stuffed... except the winner, Ramona, who could eat more after eating a total of seven sandwiches.
Stephanie welcomes everyone to Uncle Monty’s annual sandwich-eating competition. She introduces the returning champion, Berkowitz before introducing their challenger, Ramona as talented, sweet and loves to eat. When Ethan arrives to cheer on his amazing girlfriend, Ramona runs into the back room. Stephanie goes after her.
After Ramona returns to the competition Stephanie officiates while everyone cheers the participants on. Tommy blows his horn to conclude the contest. The end result: Berkowitz has a personal best with 12 sandwiches but Ramona wins with 13 sandwiches. Ramona unzips her sweatshirt to reveal a shirt reading "Gibbler Wins". Steve hands Ramona the Golden Sub trophy. Fernando gets everyone's attention to announce that there's not a possum in the kitchen but to exit immediately before been bitten... by not a possum.
Kimmy has organised a bark mitzvah at the pet clinic on Saturday for Sharon's dog Schlomo, who is turning 13. Kimmy sent an Evite out. When Steve arrives to collect Comet Jr. Jr. after her flea dip he tells Kimmy they're a yes for the bark mitzvah.
Jackson, Ramona, and Max throw the adults a very Fuller-Tanner-Gibbler wedding shower extravaganza. D.J., Stephanie, Kimmy, Fernando, Steve, and Jimmy will compete in their couples on The Nearlywed Game. Where the winner will get to pick the first song they'll all dance to at the wedding. D.J. wants (Everything I do) I do it for you, Stephanie wants Purple Rain, and Kimmy wants Rump Shaker. Jackson, Ramona, and Max will be live-streaming the show because they're under 30, and what's the point of doing anything unless it's for public consumption.
D.J. believes she and Steve know each other better than the other couples. When they played The Perfect Couple, D.J. and Steve lost because they barely knew anything about each other. D.J. made Team Steejay t-shirts in assorted colours, fonts, and sizes.
The entire game show set was paid for by their corporate sponsors. Max is the host, Ramona is the announcer, and Jackson will be running the cameras: holding the iPad. After Ramona introduces the nearlywed couples, Max asks the guys to step out of the room while he asks the girls a series questions. The girls write down their answers and when the guys return they'll see if the answers match.
Question one: Who was your first celebrity crush? D.J., Stephanie, and Kimmy all answer with Joey McIntyre. Steve guesses correctly. Jimmy nervously answers Charles in Charge. Fernando say him. Fernando has an angry outburst, he wants to find and kill Joey McIntyre. Question two: When was the moment that you realised you were in love? Steve correctly answers "nervously doing homework". While Stephanie said Box of Kittens, Jimmy answers Anxiety! Kimmy said Happy Hour at Applebee's while Fernando, still angry at Kimmy's first answer, threatens Joey McIntyre. At the end of round one Jackson, Ramona, and Max present a word from their sponsors: Lattice World. Fernando begs Steve to tank the competition.
Round two, it's the guys turn to write the answers down. Question one: What was the first movie you saw as a couple? Stephanie answers correctly with Pitch Perfect 2. Kimmy replies Driving Miss Daisy while Fernando wrote D'Back to the Future. D.J. answers Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves but Steve wrote Paul Blart: Mall Cop. He claims he misheard the question as worst movie instead of first movie. Question two: What celebrity couple do you most resemble? Stephanie answers Blake Sheldon and Gwen Stefani while Jimmy wrote "The country guy and the girl with the blonde hair and the red lipstick". Judge Cosmo barks to indicate that as a correct answer. Kimmy answers Desi and Lucy while Fernando wrote David Beckham and Dosh Spice. D.J. thinks she and Steve are like Kate Middleton and Prince William. Steve wrote Peanut Butter and Jelly. Question three: What's something your partner finds annoying about you? Kimmy answers "Da way she chews" while Fernando wrote "double joined knees". D.J. answers "I'm hyper-competitive and I always want to win". Steve wrote "too many alarm clocks". D.J. discovers Steve is trying to lose on purpose. Stephanie answers her snore is too adorable, while Jimmy wrote nothing because he couldn't think of anything annoying about her. D.J., Stephanie, and Kimmy storm off which concludes round two. Jackson, Ramona, and Max do an ad for Uncle Monty’s Sandwich Emporium.
Fernando, Steve, and Jimmy try to think of a way to fix things. D.J., Stephanie, and Kimmy are extremely mad at the guys. Max tells the girls the game is a hit. The guys want to make it up to the girls.
Round three is largely improvised. For the final bonus round: a men's only question that they made up. What's something goofy about the ladies the men find adorable? Fernando loves Kimmy unique style and wears one of her infamous outfits including her egg and bacon scarf. He apologises for going overboard, they don't need to win a competition. Steve reveals an "I'm sorry..." banner and a "...because, I love you" banner. Jimmy does the same routine to Love Shack that Stephanie did at the telethon, wearing the same outfit. Everyone decides to make Love Shake the first song the couples will dance to at the wedding. After concluding the livestream, everyone dances.
While D.J. and Steve are sitting in the kitchen, Kimmy and Fernando enter with donuts. D.J. knows Fernando only brings gifts when he's giving bad news. Stephanie and Jimmy enter with breakfast pie. Uncle Monty's is officially opening a second location in Palo Alto which Fernando will be managing. Therefore after the wedding Kimmy, Fernando, and Ramona will be moving to Palo Alto. Jimmy will now be handling the original Uncle Monty's, which means Stephanie, Jimmy, and Dani will be moving closer to the store the following week, after the wedding.
D.J. wants to live in a total bubble of denial, about those moving out, until after the triple wedding. The couples are down to the last three tasks in the wedding planning binder. Task one: the brides-to-be have to find their something borrowed. Task two: the men to have their bachelor party. Task three: a toast to the last week before the wedding, done Tanner/Fuller/Gibbler/Hale/all of Fernando's last names-style. Fernando decides from now on he is only going to go by his first name.
Steve, Jimmy, and Matt arrive at Axetastic for the guys bachelor party. Jimmy wishes there was someone who could teach them everything they need to know about axe throwing. Axe-pert Alex appears. Then Jimmy wishes they had ice cold beers, and a waitress appears with a drink for each of them. Alex explains that the key to axe throwing is grabbing an axe and throwing it. Matt throw the first axe, and it bounces off the board. Steve gets a bullseye on his first try. Steve throw another axe and gets another bullseye. A regular patron, Kurt, has the record and is unimpressed by how well Steve is going. Steve throws the next axe standing facing away from the board and still hits. The fourth axe, Steve throws while covering his eyes and hits the middle again.
Kurt begins to intimidate Steve. Matt and Jimmy stand between them. Fernando arrives. Matt tells Kurt that Steve healed his heart. They have each others back. Steve taught Fernando to be a better man. Steve taught Jimmy how to make the perfect grilled cheese sandwich. They've never had a friend as good as Steve. Kurt starts to cry so his girlfriend, Patty, leave. The guys cement their male bond by deciding on a name for the four of them: Booyah Boys.
After D.J. sends out a group text, Steve, Jimmy, Fernando, Jackson, Ramona, Max, Tommy, Rocki, Ethan, Matt, and Dani arrive at the Diner. Stephanie announces that all their wedding planning is now officially done. Stephanie decided to use the veil after all. D.J. is going to use her mothers wedding brooch. And Kimmy wants to use Pam's wedding necklace as her something borrowed to honour the woman who created her two besties. At the jukebox, Sally chooses the song Build Me Up Buttercup which was Pam's favourite song. Everyone sings along.
D.J., Stephanie, Kimmy, Jackson, Ramona, Danny, Joey, Max, Tommy, Fernando, Steve, and Jimmy arrive home after the rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding. It's Tommy's bedtime and he wants D.J. to read him a book. Ramona says she'll read to Tommy because it could be her last chance before she moves away. D.J. is still living in a bubble of denial, where nobody is moving out and they only talk about happy things.
When Jimmy notices the time, the grooms have to leave. He believes bad things will happen if he, Fernando, and Steve see their brides-to-be after midnight. Jimmy returns when he realises he left his phone behind. Stephanie tosses it to him. Jimmy's phone alarm alerts him to the fact that is now midnight, and Jimmy is looking at Stephanie on their wedding day. He covers his eyes and runs out.
When they arrive home, D.J. calls everyone to the living room. She explains that they have nowhere to have the wedding. D.J. has an idea: have the ceremony in the backyard. Danny is happy because it will be so much cheaper. Kimmy will take care of the furniture, linens, and flowers. Stephanie is in charge of the music. Ramona will alert the guests. Max will call the girls hair stylist. Danny gets a text from Pastor Tim, who has another assignment for a high-profile celebrity wedding. Danny will find another officiant.
After Lola Wong and Bobby Popko arrive for the wedding, Steve explains to Jackson and Ramona that in life they're going to run into exes. But those run-ins have no strength against the power of a real relationship.
Everyone stands as the wedding ceremony begins. Jackson, Ramona, Max, and Tommy wait along side Fernando, Steve, and Jimmy for the brides-to-be. First Joey walks Kimmy, then Jesse walks Stephanie, and last Danny walks D.J. down the aisle. Danny kisses his daughters before sitting with Joey Jesse, and Pamela. Jesse asks Danny for his name to go on his gift. Danny's gift was paying for the wedding. Joey inquires as to if Danny found a minister. Girls are thrilled to discover Joey McIntyre will be officiating their wedding. Joey McIntyre announces he is there to marry three New Kids superfans to their grooms. The couples wrote their own vows. Kimmy and Fernando go first, followed by Stephanie and Jimmy, and last D.J. and Steve. Joey McIntyre cries over the vows, he thought Please Don't Go Girl was romantic. D.J. Stephanie, and Kimmy say "I do" as they place rings on their respective grooms fingers. Fernando, Steve, and Jimmy say "I do" as they place rings on their respective brides fingers. Joey McIntyre pronounces the couples "husbands and wives". All guests stand up, clap, and cheer the newlyweds. Lisa Loeb plays guitar and sings First Day of my Life. The newlyweds share the first dance together as guests watch. Joey gives the first toast. Jesse gives the next toast. D.J. Stephanie, and Kimmy throw their bouquets. Ramona, Lola, and CJ catch them. Danny gives his toast.
The next day: Jackson, Max, and Tommy say goodbye to Ramona in her almost empty room. Stephanie, Kimmy, Ramona, Fernando, Jimmy, and Dani are all packed and ready to leave. D.J. had been trying to avoid this moment for a long time. D.J., Stephanie, Kimmy, Jackson, Ramona, Max, Tommy, Danny, Joey, Fernando, Steve, Jimmy, and Dani have one final large group hug. Danny, Joey, Fernando, Ramona, Jimmy, and Dani are the first to walk out the door. Steve takes Jackson, Max, and Tommy so D.J. can say goodbye to Stephanie and Kimmy alone.D.J. walks Stephanie and Kimmy to the door, closing it behind them. D.J. stands alone crying in the living room, when she hears a knock at the door. Stephanie and Kimmy return. Stephanie knows they don't have to all live together, but they want to. Stephanie and Kimmy can't imagine raising their families any other way. There's no where else Stephanie would rather be, especially with a new baby on the way. It's a miracle, Stephanie is pregnant. D.J. and Kimmy are so happy for her. When Stephanie and Kimmy ask to stay, D.J. says "of course, the door is always open". Kimmy shouts "she said we can stay". Everyone comes back in.
