Shawn comes up with the idea of using wax to help loosen up the zipper but they are unable to find a candle. Shawn grabs the bottle of champagne and two glasses meant for Sami and Lucas and suggests that they use it since Lucas wont be drinking and Sami wouldnt toast herself. Mimi agrees since the other alternative is to go back to the wedding in the wedding dress. Shawn pops the cork with much effort and the inside bottle pressure makes the contents explode out of the bottle and onto the floor.
