Pleakley is upset by the news, so Lilo urges him to call his mother and say he already has a fiancée. Pleakley manages to successfully lie (even with Fibber buzzing in the background), only for his mother, his sister Pixley, and his brother Bertley to show up at the house.

Needing a girl to pose as Pleakley's fiancée, Lilo decides to convince Nani to be the girl. Nani is reluctant, but only relents when she realizes Jumba would be a lousy caretaker for Lilo should Pleakley leave. As the ''ʻohana'' and Pleakley's family talk about her and Pleakley's "wedding", Nani begins to have second thoughts when Mrs. Pleakley states that Pleakley and her should have a proper ceremony to exchange "intergalactically eternal binding vows". David calls the house and learns of Nani's "engagement" from Pixley, to his shock and confusion. Meanwhile, Stitch is driven crazy by Fibber's continuous buzzing as he keeps trying to hide him.

But all it has gotten her was "high-powered career, a custom shoe closet, and bone-searing loneliness!" Their mother tearfully admits their struggles are all her fault; she pushed them to be successful because she wanted them to be happy. She also thinks Pleakley isn't happy because he isn't married, but Pleakley admits that he doesn't want to be married at all, content to be single. Lilo and Nani add in that, although their families can annoy them, they will still love them.
