Suzie Barnes-Eilhauer (Alison Brie) is Violet's friend, and as such, she has a duty to tell her the truth. Yes, this should be exciting and fun, because you only take "a few" trips down the aisle...
Suzie (to Violet): "This is supposed to be exciting. This is your wedding -- you only get a few of these."
Grandparents Do Die
Sylvia has a point. Putting off weddings for years can mean fewer grandparents will be able to attend. Sadly, that holds true for Violet and Tom. When a grandparent does, in fact, pass away before the happy couple can take their walk down the aisle, Sylvia tactfully points out at the funeral, "This is why we do not delay weddings."
Sylvia: "Any ideas when this wedding might happen? Grandparents do have a tendency to die."
Violet: "Mom, they're all right there."
Sylvia: "Well, for now..."
On the Treadmill
Things are beginning to get pretty tense between Violet and Tom. Tom's losing his patience. After waiting years to marry Violet, he's still trying to run on that engagement treadmill.
Tom: "You told me that it was gonna be two years. It's sort of like when you're on a treadmill, and you tell yourself 'I want to run five miles today' and now, it's forever miles..."
Violet: "When was the last time you were on a treadmill? Sorry..."
Cirque du Soleil of Shows
Tom obviously wants a reward for agreeing to put off the wedding for a couple of years, while Violet goes to Michigan to start a new job.
Tom: "We both know I deserve to get super laid for this."
Violet: "Do you want me to wear a cape or something?"
Tom: "I want the show."
Violet: "You get the Cirque du Soleil of shows..."
