All this and laughs, too.
Things started with Homer and Marge preparing a musical toast for a cousin's wedding. But on the day of the wedding, Homer opened a fortune cookie stating this was his lucky day. At first, Homer blew off the fortune: "Any part of a cookie you can't eat is just a waste of time." But his luck did indeed start to turn as crashing into a vending machine resulted in its contents raining down for Homer's enjoyment. Instead of heading straight to the wedding, Homer stopped to buy a lottery ticket and got stuck a very long, very slow line. It was a fun set up, leaving Homer feeling guilty about missing the toast and unable to tell Marge that he was instead buying a winning lottery ticket. It was a nice touch to have Lenny and Carl help convince Homer that the fortune cookie may be right.
