In the conclusion of a two-part story, Laura (Mary Tyler Moore) has confessed to Rob (Dick Van Dyke) that she was only 17 years old when they were married. Though technically speaking, the Petries are still legally man and wife, the rules about "age of consent" vary from state to state, so their lawyer has advised them to undergo a second marriage ceremony just to make sure. However, by the time they show up at the home of justice of the peace Judge Krata (Russell Collins), Rob and Laura are so angry with each other that the judge flatly refuses to perform the ceremony! The day is saved by the two marital witnesses, superbly played by venerable character actors Madge Blake and Burt Mustin.
