בערב הסטנדאפ שהפקתי לציון סיום "חתונמי", שאלתי את גיא ובן הנוכחים, "רגע, זה באמת הסוף, או שיהיה גם 'המומחים עונים על שאלות של פליטים מסודן' ו'חיות הבית מכל העונות נפגשות'?". באותו רגע, לא ידעתי עד כמה שני הקונספטים הללו עשויים לרתק אותי יותר מהחתונה של ליאור וקטיה. אחרי עשרה חודשים בלבד ביחד, זמן היכרות כלל לא מדאיג, הצמד האוהב-במקסימום ליאוקט עושים את זה שוב, רק שהפעם - רגע, מה בעצם שונה הפעם מהחתונה הקודמת? - אהה, כן, הפעם זה "כדת וכדין". מצד אחד, צורם לאוזן הקוקטייל של דת לפורמט מסחרי, מצד שני, מה מסחרי יותר מהרבנות, וחוץ מזה, חתונה היא הזמן המושלם לקוקטיילים דוחים. ועל אף שקטיה הצהירה בבירור שלא תעשה זאת, היא החליטה להתחתן ברבנות כי הבינה שחשוב לליאור. האמת, אני מבינה אותה - גם אני מרוב אהבה לבן זוג שלי עשיתי מילת דגדגן, הוא פשוט מעדיף ככה, חמוד כזה. "כשאתה מתאהב, האגו נעלם", מסבירה קטיה. אבל כשאתה מתגרש, נשמה, וואי וואי.
