The phrase "TOIT NUPS" immediately put this song into my head and you're welcome for the great Thursday-afternoon earworm I've gifted you.

Jake calling himself Snape annoyed me as much as it annoyed me when Nathaniel on Crazy-Ex Girlfriend did it.

Jake is clearly a Ron just as Nathaniel is clearly a Draco. They're not remotely Snapeish!

(And yeah, fun episode. Liked how quickly they destroyed Jake and Amy's dream wedding.)

Between the crossword puzzles and the Nakitomi Plaza cake, those WERE toit nups!

What has the actress playing Jean been in before? Looks familiar but I can't place her.

she's been in a bunch of things as a side character, but she started out on Strangers with Candy if you were into that. I think I know her from Forgetting Sarah Marshall, which I've seen various parts of several times when I had cable and had nothing else to watch.

Maria Thayer. I thought she was so familiar too, and I think I've just seen her do small parts a bunch of times.

She played the blind woman who Kenneth the Page woos with the help of Tracy Jordan on 30 Rock.

To me, Maria Thayer is the woman from Chris Elliot's classic Adult Swim show, Eagleheart.

Oh lord, I recognized her from Annie Claus.

I recognized her but do not recognize any of your recognizations so I have no idea why I know who she is.

I found it impossible to suspend my disbelief that Amy would (1) not confirm in advance whether the deposits they were putting down were refundable or not, and (2) would even book vendors at all prior to actual signing a written contract with their venue.

I did like the vendor sequence as its own thing (that cake!), and also that they avoided all the Normal Sitcom Tropes in the course of it, so disbelief aside: toit.

poffin boffin: to me she bears a strong resemblance to Ellie Kemper [when I clicked through the imdb link above I initially thought "Why are there pictures of Ellie Kemper on this person's page?"]; maybe that's throwing a wrench into the recognization machinery?

I guess Jake's flakiness is rubbing off on her.
