    Yeah, but what I forget is WHY Christine and Richard were together to get caught...

    Why did Richard marry Barb? I missed that one, too.

    I think O. Christine found out that N Christine's dad was engaged to someone else, realizing her crush was doomed to fail she felt bad about herself. Richard wanted to console O. Christine, so she wouldn't feel so bad; and N Christine walked in then got angry.

    When did Barb & Richard get married? Trying to figure out which episode I missed. Thanks!

    Barb and Richard got married to "fix" Barb's illegal alien status. Barb wanted to date that INS agent, but he sent her back to Barbados (was that it? Whatever country Barb is supposed to be from), and in order for her to stay in the US, she needed to get married, but her same sex marriage to Christine didn't satisfy the requirement, so Richard was the only other person standing around at the time. That's my recollection.

    Thank You!!!! I figured as much but I don't remember when in the world that happened. I looked through the recaps and I remember seeing all of the episodes this season, but it wasn't mentioned in any of the recaps.

    Thanks so much!

    So Barb and Richard must still be married, right? So he can't marry NC even if she forgives him. Usually you have to be married 5 years before you can get divorced and still be a citizen if I recall correctly.

    If that is the actual law, then they must be playing fast and loose with regulations for comedic effect since Barb was married to Pete for around ten years or so (I think), and she was immediately marked for deportation upon the finalization of their divorce.

    Right, but I think she never applied for a green card while she was married to him--didn't need one as long as she was married and never thought the marriage would end. On the other hand, given her age you'd have thought she might at least think he'd die....not sure what happens then. Pretty dumb of her.
