It is the day before Jesse and Becky's wedding. Stephanie and D.J., who will be bridesmaids and flower girls along with Michelle, are using Danny's camcorder to tape the events leading up to the wedding, and they also plan to tape the wedding. Becky's sister Connie Anderson has arrived and brought her son Howie with her, but Michelle and Howie do not remember each other from when Connie and Howie visited two years ago, and they go through a phase of dislike for the opposite sex.
Soon after Connie and Howie arrive, Becky's parents Kenneth and Nedra arrive. Kenneth explains that they would have arrived earlier, had a hoodlum on a motorcycle not cut them off. Jesse shows up and explains that he would have been home earlier if he had not been stuck behind an old walnut who was driving too slow. When Kenneth and Jesse see each other's face, Kenneth realizes that Jesse was the man on the motorcycle and Jesse realizes that Kenneth was the old walnut who was driving too slow. Jesse says "That's the walnut!" Kenneth says "That's the hoodlum!" From the start, it seems that Jesse and Kenneth can't get along with each other, which upsets Becky, and Nedra tries to assure her that things will be alright.
Danny and Joey get their suits mixed up, and realize that they are wearing each other's suit. Nedra nearly has a heart attack when she walks in on them while they are trying to exchange suits in the kitchen.
Later, Kenneth, who used to perform in rodeos, has a talk with Jesse. They agree to get along with each other, and Kenneth says that getting married to Nedra meant that he had to retire from the rodeo circuit. That makes Jesse want to have one last adventure as a single guy before getting married.
At 7:00am on the next morning, just three hours away from the 10:00am wedding, Jesse has Joey go to the airport with him, and Jesse talks Joey, who has a pilot license, into taking Jesse up in an airplane so Jesse can do a sky dive. As soon as Joey is over the area where the jump will take place, Jesse jumps out of the airplane and opens the parachute, yelling "Have mercy!"
Later, at the church, as Michelle and Howie become friends again, everyone is wondering why Jesse has not arrived for the wedding yet. What no one knows is that the reason why is that he never touched the ground. The parachute is hanging from a tall tree, and Jesse is still attached to the parachute, yelling for help.
