During a romantic dinner out one evening, Doug is inspired by the beautiful surroundings to proclaim his love for Carrie. Carrie is touched by his gesture and suggests that they renew their wedding vows. They set out to plan their vow renewal ceremony, but find that the planning is much more trouble than it's worth. They decide that it's better to cancel the ceremony to avoid the headaches they have encountered. However, once they tell everyone that the renewal is off, everyone assumes they are having marital problems, so Doug and Carrie decide to go ahead with the renewal after all, just to get their family and friends to shut up. The two find that planning the wedding is much more troublesome than expected.  
Meanwhile, Arthur, who offered a bottle of fine Port Wine as a gift to Doug and Carrie, has discovered that it is quite valuable and is hoping that they do not go ahead with the ceremony after all because he wants to sell the wine for a large profit on eBay.
