Just a Formality
Robert finally decides to propose to Amy. Robert confides his decision to Raymond and then convinces Ray to accompany him to meet Amy’s ultra-conservative parents. Chris Elliott plays Amy's brother; Fred Willard and Georgina Engel play Amy's parents.
Meeting the Parents
Robert is caught in a compromising position by Amy's parents when they arrive unexpectedly at her apartment. After encountering another awkward moment with Robert, Amy’s parents try to dissuade their daughter from marrying him, only to wind up coming to blows with Marie and Frank, who have been invited to Amy’s for a peaceful family brunch. Meanwhile, Amy's brother, Peter, tries to enlist Ray’s support in helping him stop the impending nuptials.
Sleepover at Peggy’s
Raymond is horrified when he thinks his "cookie nemesis" flirted with him. When Debra is too sick to take Ally to a sleepover, Ray reluctantly agrees to take her despite the fact he must come face to face with Peggy, the mom who physically assaulted him during the last cookie drive. Surprisingly, Ray winds up mending fences with her when he helps Peggy pitch a tent in her living room for the girls. However, their newfound friendship is short-lived after Peggy pats Ray on the behind as a way of saying ‘thanks’ and he thinks she’s just made a pass at him.
Debra gives a bridal shower for Amy, but her good intentions get sidetracked by Marie's overzealous participation. When Marie attempts to "take over" Amy’s wedding shower, Debra gets upset and yells at her, prompting Marie to leave in a huff. Returning to the party festivities, Debra starts drinking a little too much champagne and winds up being too tipsy to drive. When she can’t reach Ray on the phone, Debra decides to take a nap in her car with the keys in the ignition and is awakened by a police officer, who arrests her for drunk driving. When her license is suspended, Debra finds herself in a precarious situation when she’s forced to rely on Marie for help.
The Bachelor Party
Debra and Marie give Raymond a guilt trip when they find out that the bachelor party he hosted for Robert was a huge disappointment. After playing cards and eating pizza at Robert’s apartment, Ray is forced to leave the party early and Debra, who is surprised that Ray is home so early, informs him that he dropped the ball and really let his brother down. Debra suggests Ray host a "real" bachelor party and concocts a plan along with Marie and Amy to surprise Robert with another one. While Amy asks Ray to invite her brother and father, Ray puts together an odd mix of partygoers, hoping that this time around, he’ll do the job right.
