Excited, Rachel hides behind her mother and tells her groom not to see her before the wedding before breaking the news. “Here’s the thing, Rach, you know I love you, I really do, but I just have to…” while her mom says, “I knew it was too good to be true.”

“I was waiting for you in there and it just didn’t feel right. You know what I mean? We hardly know each other, how did we meet? Two months ago?” The groom, Gregory (Ray Fearon), continues, only for her mother to add, “Three and a half, actually.”

Gregory then admits he was “so busy with rehearsals” that he didn’t focus on their relationship, telling Rachel, “This is such a big role for me.” “You don’t have lines!” replies she finally, marking her first words since he broke the news that he was leaving.

He then asks Rachel to “go somewhere else to talk, baby,” which sends her over the edge.” “Listen, don’t ‘babe’ me, we can talk right here, thanks a lot.” Elizabeth Hurley, as Rachel quips. “So you’re telling me, after pulling off this wedding in record time while you practice being backstage and being a glorified extra, that it doesn’t ‘feel right’ now? I mean, you told me two days ago that you can’t wait to get married and have kids. What the hell happened?”

Gregory then decides to be honest and tells Rachel his self-centered reasoning for leaving her at the altar. He tells her: “Last night I had a few drinks with the boys and I thought I’m an actor, Rach. I must be free to follow my dreams. I mean, if I’m married and have kids, I think it’ll keep the creative juices from getting through and I’ll never get a great role again. And the boys said that everyone knows behind every great actor there is a nagging woman.”

That was the last straw for Rachel, who watched Gregory wide-eyed and gaping as he said it. “Behind every great actor is a nagging wife? Well, you don’t have to worry about that anymore because A. You’re not a great actor, B. I won’t be your wife!” She yells and throws her bouquet at him before storming off.
