Bob (Billy Gardell) warns Dottie about the speech and tells everyone she is fresh off a stroke to lower the bar. However, it ends up being very sweet.
Ebun (Saidah Arrika Ekulona)talks about Abishola (Folake Olowfoyeku), but gets many of the details wrong to make Bob and Abishola sound better….and then takes credit for bringing them together. Olu (Shola Adewusi) snarks about how amazing it is that she was able to do that when she was the one in America.
Tunde(Barry Shabaka Henley) and Bob talk to Abishola’s dad to ask for her hand in marriage. He then gives them a list of things to get to seal the deal.
Dele (Travis Wolfe Jr.) talks to Abishola about how he will spend six months in Nigeria and six months in America. She tells him he can always come home, unless he takes drugs or fails a test.
Bob joins them and complains about the list. Abishola tells him to get everything, but Bob worries that he won’t have time to write his vows. Abishola says they won’t be saying vows, which upsets Bob.
Douglas accompanies Bob on the shopping trip, where he pays for some of the stuff. He also tastes some of the food, which he says tastes like ass.
The two of them need help, so they FaceTime with Goodwin (Bayo Akinfemi) and Kofo (Anthony Okungbowa). The two give them advice on what and where to buy things, all the while making them feel guilty for not inviting them to the wedding.
Douglas decides to play a drum, but Tunde comes by to yell and him and Bob for not buying things properly. The only thing they got right was the kola nuts, which Douglas says he purchased. Tunde tells Bob to be more like Douglas.
The ladies go dress shopping for the wedding, where Ebun and Olu get into a fight over one of the dresses. Ebun wants to wear the one Olu has and guilts Abishola into letting her wear it.
At the bridal lunch, Christina gives a toast and tells Abishola she loves her like a sister. Abishola is silent, so Christina tells her she doesn’t have to say it back.
Ebun and Olu also have things to say, but end up getting into a fight. Christina and Dottie are happy to NOT be the embarrassing family for a change.
Wedding time! After some traditional events from Abishola’s side of the family, everyone mingles. Ebun and Olu continue to snark at each other, but Olu lets things go so Ebun can have her daughter for the day. She tells Abishola she has her for all the other days.
