After attending a reception for a Jewish wedding, an elderly couple are making their way to the car park when a hotel employee stops them and requests that they accompany him to the manager’s office. Apparently, there has been a robbery and Faye and Sidney are suspects.

Although Faye and Sidney insist they are not the thieves, it turns out they have to explain why they weren’t on the wedding guest list either…
