First, Ida and she have a disagreement on the wedding dress, Ida wanting something more traditional, while Brenda wants a simple every day dress. Second, Benny has news that he has found a house for them after their marriage, they sharing it with another couple on Staten Island. Third, Ida offers Brenda and Benny a trip to Israel, complete with a meeting with Golda Meir, for their honeymoon. And finally, Benny has arranged for Brenda to join him in the Goodwin family plot after their passing. Brenda is overwhelmed enough in the battles in which she knows what she wants, but is totally drowning in those decisions about which she has no idea yet what she wants. By the early light of morning, Brenda is nowhere to be found, she having run away from all these problems. Rhoda, Ida and Benny have to figure out where she went, and if they can what they can do to make everything all right in her world. Meanwhile, Rhoda is getting estimates from carpenters to enclose her kitchen. Upon hearing what she wants to do, Jack offers to do the work. Rhoda, who didn't even know that Jack knew carpentry, has to decide whether to take him up on the offer, and if she does and it doesn't go well if their friendship will be affected by it.
