Plot Edit

To get him out of his hair for the evening, Carl sends Urkel on a bowling date with Laura, then watches a movie. Estelle warns him that they may fall in love, but he ignores her and dozes off. Carl quickly has a nightmare about how Urkel and Laura fell in love, got married and gave birth to a brood of Urkel kids in the year 2009; Steven Aloysius Urkel, Steven Bertram Urkel, Steven Cornelius Urkel, and adopted daughter Stephanie Sue Urkel.

Ironically, this dream is actually going to come true later on, minus all the frightening parts of this dream.

Trivia Edit

  • In the beginning of this episode, Steve says that Carl promised to do certain activities with him. One of these included a date before 1989, which was the year in which Carl and Urkel had met. This was either an accidental or deliberate series error.
  • Three of the young actors playing the Urkel children were hired through a contest held prior to the episode's taping. The fourth, the girl playing Stephanie Sue Urkel (the adopted daughter) was selected from a casting audition.
  • The episode title is wordplay on "Father of the Bride", a 1950 comedy film adapted from Edward Streeter's 1949 novel, about a man trying to cope with preparations for his daughter's upcoming wedding.

Goofs Edit

  • When Urkel says, "No way, Jose!" his mouth doesn't move on "Jose."
