It's two weeks before their wedding and Andy and Jen have just moved into their new home. They are planting a commemorative tree in the side yard when the mail truck stops at their curbside mail box. The delivery man climbs out of his vehicle and waddles towards them. Their first thought is that there will probably need to be another upward revision for the caterer-which has already cost them dearly. Instead, he presents Andy with a registered letter with no return address.

He opens the letter and discovers that Mandy, the girl he took to the senior prom in high school and ended up with in the back seat of his father's car with his pants down to his ankles, beer cans strewn all over the place, and a cop banging on his window with a flashlight, is sending his nine year old son, who he didn't know existed for a weekend visit.

Jen loses it and threatens to shoot the plane out of the sky before settling down and accepting the situation. Ike, whose picture looks like a miniature clone of Andy, shows up on Saturday morning with scraggly, unkempt, purple hair, a skull and crossbones earring, and an attitude. The stewardess has two documents for him to sign-an airline agreement for safe delivery of the minor and another registered letter from the Miami court system. Mandy has terminated all parental rights and turned the child over to Andy.
