    Suzie (to Violet): "This is supposed to be exciting. This is your wedding -- you only get a few of these."

    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...

    Rabbi: "Of course, the men will wear yarmulkes..."
    Violet: "Babe, you don't have a yarmulke..."

    Violet: "There's like, 600 people..."
    Carol: "I know."
    Violet: "Maybe just..."
    Carol: "You don't want to get in front of this train, Violet."

    Poor Violet: She's understandably overwhelmed by all of the wedding-related planning, particularly the (ever growing) guest list. Thanks to Carol (Tom's mom), the simple, elegant ceremony just became a small rock concert in size...
