Gwen welcomed Clarice (in for a short visit from Detroit), but Clarice revealed Burt wouldn't be able to attend the wedding as best man since he was often sent out of town on work, and that he may even be up for a big promotion that would take him overseas.

JULY 19, 1978 (EP. #3558)
To discourage Marianne's wedding plans, Greg said Joan wasn't available to be her bridesmaid. Greg murmured to Pat's photo after encouraging Marianne to make up with her. Susan didn't let on she had pocketed it when Liz fretted that Dan had gotten rid of Susan's photo from his office. After Ada phoned Rachel, Clarice came by and was puzzled by Ada's reluctance to visit Charley at the new store. Feeling Pat's obsession over Greg was evidence of a recurrence of her emotional instability, Marianne urged John to get Susan to treat Pat. Rachel arranged for Louise to pay Rose for the maternity clothes and Vince for remodeling the nursery. Elena told Rachel she had an anonymous buyer. Liz badgered Susan into warning Dan about Olive. Greg was interested when John confided in him about Pat's unhappy experience with a college classmate.

Angie went upstairs so Liz could implore Jim to caution Dan against Olive. Mac agreed to be Willis's best man. Vince and Charley installed partitions at the Hobson/Frame shop and showroom. Vince was thrilled at Gwen's news. Dennis warned Eileen that her parents might disapprove of him as well since they'd disapproved of Mike's parents being divorced. A concerned Dan paid a house call on a listless Olive, then bustled past Liz, who remained behind to ring the bell repeatedly, but Olive just stared balefully at her through the glass panels beside the door. Alice encouraged Dan to stay for supper after he came to complain to Susan about Liz. Vince and Gwen were more enthusiastic about the dinner party than Angie and Willis. Angie avoided Vince's eye when Willis made a big show of slipping an engagement ring on Gwen's finger.
JULY 21, 1978 (EP. #3560)
Dennis had no answer when Rachel wondered why Jamie was ignoring her letters and who the mystery girl was. Dennis told Iris that Eileen said her parents won't object to her divorces. Greg was annoyed that Marianne felt their future looked rosy. Pat admitted to Susan she may have led Greg on since she was flattered by his attention, and that it might do her good to talk to a stranger about her troubles. Liz offered her decorating services to Charley, then escorted Sally home when she showed up at the shop. Dino and Sharon told Blaine that Dennis wasn't at work yet, then Rachel arrived and pounced on her letter to Jamie that spilled out of Blaine's purse. Iris dropped by the Simpson household to warn Nora that a dissolute Dennis was just trifling with Eileen. Dennis admitted to Rachel that Jamie had been interested in the foreman's daughter. Marianne arrived to find Pat with Greg, who later lied Pat had begged him to be with her. Mac didn't jump to Rachel's conclusion that Blaine was scouting out Jamie's background.

Dino told Elena that Sharon left to tend her sick mother, then Mac told her that Rachel has to delay her new piece. Alice turned down Liz's idea to send Sally to camp as Sally had resented always being sent away by her parents.

Vivien was sad Louise's training still hasn't made her acceptable to Iris, then Dennis arrived to continue mending fences.

Pat asked Rick to offer to play doubles with Marianne and Greg. Eileen told Dennis of Iris's visit to her mother. Dennis advised Mac that Fred tried to keep Blaine in line since she always sets her sights on rich men. Rose approved of Vince's honeymoon plans, but Angie insisted Jim couldn't manage without her. Greg jumped at the chance when Rick asked Marianne to play tennis with him and Pat. Brian informed Mac that a German publishing combine was trying to buy out his European associates. Brian refused to help her when Dennis railed at Iris for maligning him to Nora.

Greg pushed Marianne (happily spending the day cleaning his apartment) into getting John on their side. John encouraged Susan to get to know Greg personally. Rachel feared to Ada that Jamie would be hurt as she had once hurt people. Larry was upset to find his sister Blaine in Jamie's arms. Blaine told Larry that while he was in Montana, she lied to Fred that she was going to visit Rita Connelly back East.

Brian said he's decided to move back in after Iris cried that Mac sent her to Europe so he could be a man about town. Rachel insisted on accompanying Mac and Brooks to the airport.

Liz suggested Brian as best man after Gwen and Willis learned Mac would be out of town for their wedding. Alice agreed, so Sally phoned to invite Dan for lunch.

Joey agreed to come to Sally's party since Eileen was invited. Olive speculated Susan didn't love Dan when Susan was annoyed to find them together in Dan's office. Angie was upset to come downstairs to find Rose asking Jim to give Angie some time off. Brian agreed to stand up for Willis and offered to have the reception at Iris's new suite. Alice asked Liz to help her get Sally over Joey. Clarice told Gwen that Burt will fly in from time to time to see her. Angie backed down when Vince wondered why she was so upset. Dan told Olive he sympathized with her difficult life after reading her case history in Cal Zimmerman's files. Dan had to turn down Alice's invite to dinner after asking Olive to Tall Boys.

Susan: [GRIMLY] "Hello to Olive." [SHE STARTS OUT AGAIN]
Dan: "I apologize for her, Olive."
Susan: [COMING BACK] "No one has to apologize for being rude to Olive."

Louise phoned Ada for help after she and Brooks failed to talk Rachel out of flying to Wyoming alone. Dino told Elena he would be bearding the lioness in her den by visiting Iris. Iris gleaned that something was up as Vivien phoned Louise for help managing the household account. Dino found it very exciting when Vivien said Iris couldn't see him. Ada shuttled Iris out to the terrace, then shoved her out the foyer when Rachel came home. Louise was relieved when Ada offered to accompany Rachel. Larry warned Mitch to keep his nose out of Blaine's business or he'd be riding some other range. Vince gave Nancy a kiss after Rose agreed to Ada's request to look after her.

The waitress who brought breakfast to Ada and Rachel in their motel room was mum on how well she knew Blaine. Blaine's tears encouraged Jamie to ask her to come to Bay City with him. Mitch warned Blaine that Fred could get fired if the owner hears about her and Jamie. Gwen and Willis were surprised at the new, mellow Iris who came by to discuss the reception. Mitch went to get Jamie when Ada arrived. Ada and Jamie realized their letters to each other never arrived. Iris coaxed Liz into agreeing to co-host with her. Clarice didn't want to be in the same room with Iris when Liz told Gwen she was now a co-hostess. Iris came by the Perrini household to meet Rose and ask her to persuade Vince and Angie to attend the wedding. Jamie left when Rachel began harping on Blaine.

Rachel vowed to Ada she'd tell Jamie about the letter in Blaine's purse. Blaine made excuses after Larry found Jamie's letters hidden in his truck. Ismene told Louise she misses the Corys. Since Rachel kept her trip a secret from Mac, Louise and Brooks worried when Iris pressed them on her whereabouts. Brian tried to keep Willis from climbing the walls. Clarice helped Gwen put on her mother's wedding gown. Angie hesitated briefly before leaving the house with Vince. Larry met Ada and Rachel and smiled tolerantly as he explained why Jamie was unavailable, then handed over Jamie's letters, saying they'd been misplaced. Iris, Elena, Charley, Liz, Dennis, Vince, and Angie watched as Gwen joined Willis at the altar. Angie closed her eyes involuntarily, then opened them and sat up straight when the minister asked if anyone knew why they should not be married. At Iris's, Charley broke it to Willis that Vince and Angie left during the ceremony, then everyone congratulated Willis and Gwen. Rose distracted Vince with Nancy after Angie explained she'd just been overcome seeing them getting married in a church. Larry cautioned Blaine that Rachel was skeptical about the letters.

Mac: "I promised your mother--" [HE STOPS]
Iris: "Go on, please."
Mac: "Oh, Iris, I'm so exhausted from that flight from Paris and then from New York, I wasn't thinking. Your mother couldn't have children... I mean my wife couldn't have children, so we adopted you." [IRIS SHAKES HER HEAD IN MUTE DENIAL. MAC GOES TO HER] "You were three weeks old, so it was like having our own baby."
Iris: "I'm not your child."
