With a nod to the filming style of "Modern Family," it was time for Jimmy and Sabrina's wedding on "Raising Hope." Sabrina's family hooked them up with the cameras to film the episode like this in lieu of actually coming to the wedding. What the cameras captured was that it wasn't the perfect day the happy couple thought it was, thanks to a lot of hard work by Burt and Virginia.
Jimmy and Sabrina had no idea that Reverend Bob refused to do the wedding because of some old beef with Maw Maw, or that Hope's serial killer mother Lucy had survived yet again and was determined to ruin the day. Burt got some help from Lucy's father in wrangling the psychotic woman and getting her sent back home. While she didn't "die" this time around, Burt spoke for the show in saying it's getting a little old having her show up every year to try and destroy something.
In the end, though, the couple had a nearly flawless wedding -- though they did have to have the reception before the ceremony. The most important thing was that they got hitched. But Burt and Virginia didn't want the couple to ever know how their day was almost ruined.
The only problem was that those pesky cameras had recorded everything. So all they needed to do was destroy them. Thus ended the great "Modern Family" homage on "Raising Hope."
"Raising Hope" airs back-to-back episodes on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. EST on Fox.
