Edith drags Archie along to Cousin Maude Findlay's daughter Carol's wedding in Tuckahoe.


Archie and Edith are invited to Westchester County, where Maude lived (she lived in Tuckahoe) to attend the wedding of Maude's daughter, Carol. Though Maude is able to match wits with Archie (mainly because she has twice the ammunition), she may not succeed in pulling off the wedding, which threatens to unravel at the seams long before Carol marches down the aisle with her Jewish fiance, David (Bob Dishy).


This episode served as the original pilot episode (albeit unofficial) for the spinoff series Maude. In addition to Bea Arthur as Maude, the episode featured Bill Macy as Maude's husband Walter. Bill Macy co-stars as Maude's latest husband, Walter Findlay, while actress Marcia Rodd is seen as Carol, a role ultimately played in the series proper by Adrienne Barbeau.
