Plot Edit

Arbiter and Master Chief are both playing "Grifball" in Halo 3 online multiplayer with several other players. Arbiter requests to the host of the match if they can stop playing, as the duo both find Grifball to be boring, with Chief actually falling asleep during the game. Another two players called Gregory and Sarah arrive. Arbiter's friend then introduces the two. He then goes on to explain that Gregory and Sarah are having a wedding in Halo 3 online, and invites Arbiter and Chief to come. Although neither likes the idea, Arbiter agrees to come, and tells them that Chief would like to as well, much to Chief's shock and annoyance. When Gregory, Sarah and the host leave, Chief angrily asks what Arbiter had done, and Arbiter says that he didn't know what else to tell them. Chief says that he should have said "STFU ADN GTFO", to which Arbiter replies thet he wasn't going say that, saying they were nice people. Chief makes it clear that he wasn't going, and prepares to leave. However, Arbiter begs Chief to come with him, saying it would be "as awkward as shit". Chief thinks for a moment, and then asks for 20 dollars, and they eventually settle on ten.


Chief ruins the wedding.

The following Saturday, they both attend the wedding, taking place in a church made in the Halo 3 map, Foundry. Cortana comments that she thinks that it's very sweet, before leaving.

While waiting for the wedding to start, the only other attendee orders Chief and Arbiter to crouch, to which they reluctantly agree to. Arbiter comments that Chief is right to an extent, stating that he "was all for people meeting on social networks, but this was KIND of pushing it", before the wedding begins. Sarah walks up to the altar while the host of the previously mentioned Grifball match, serving as the wedding minister, plays "appropriate music" through his headset. He then tells anyone with objections to speak now, or "forever be AFK". Chief seizes the moment to object and kills the other attendee with a headshot from his Sniper Rifle. He then pulls out and charges his Spartan Laser and fires it at the fusion coils placed around the church for decoration, detonating them and killing the minister, Gregory and Sarah, who were on the altar, sending them flying. Chief laughs hysterically while Arbiter is shocked at what Chief did. The two then run out of the church and leave the server, with Sarah crying that they ruined her wedding.

In the aftermath of the wedding, Arbiter asks what the hell that was, and Chief proudly replies that it was "ONE KICKASS WEDDING". Arbiter simply states that he couldn't believe him, but Chief persists by saying that was "SUM FUNNY ASS SHIT". Arbiter then admits that it was actually pretty funny, and agrees that they should do it again some day.

Reception Edit

"Wedding" enjoyed a unanimous positive reception from viewers and fans and has since become one of the most popular episodes of the series. Many consider it to be one of the funniest episodes of the show. Chief's use of the "Shoop Dah Whoop" meme and the wedding crash have become iconic moments in the series.

Trivia Edit

  • When Arbiter "plugs" his microphone back into the Xbox controller, the footage is actually the same as him unplugging the controller, only played in reverse to give off the illusion that be plugged the microphone back in.
  • The episode references two then-popular internet memes, the "I'M CHARGING MAH LAZAAAH/SHOOP DA WOOP" meme and the "WTF Boom" meme.
