  • Episode Description
  • Marie is astounded when Franks puts salt on her homemade lasagna, leading her to believe that she's lost her touch in the kitchen. However, Ray and Robert discover that the problem is Frank, who has lost his sense of taste. They believe it's a side-effect from some potency medication Frank is taking, but Frank doesn't want to give it up, and he doesn't want anyone to know he's taking it, especially Marie.moreless

    • Robert: (Reading the label on the pills) "Possible side effects: Headache, stomach cramping". Oh my god, Dad look at this, "Loss of taste". Frank: You're kidding? Robert: Didn't you read the label? Frank: No. My eyes are as bad as my foot.

    • Frank: I have been taking these pills. Robert: For what? Blood pressure? Frank: Nah, just some herb pills Stan and Garvin gave me. Ray: Stan and Garvin? Frank: Yeah, they're for my...foot. Ray: What? Frank: You know. My foot. (Ray and Robert look at the pills and then look at Frank in disgust) Ray: Lancelot?

    • Frank: I don't get it. How is this happening to me? Ray: Maybe...maybe your sinuses are stuffed up, you know? 90 percent of taste is smell. That would explain why you don't smell...you. Frank: Nah, I can smell me. I just don't mind me!

    • Marie: Here, Frank, try the frittata. Frank: Bring it on! (eats some, can't taste anything but pretends he can) Mmmm! Oh, wow, that's good! Marie: No, it's not! That's Debra's! Frank: Whoops......

    • Marie: That doesn't need salt. What's this about, Frank? You mad at me? Frank: No, I just want the salt. Marie: Baloney! It's because I yelled at you last night for blowing your nose into your sock!

    • Frank is saying the he is able to fake taste and Marie won't find out. If Frank couldn't taste Marie's lasagna earlier and he let her know that, why was he thinking of faking the taste when she was serving her brunch.
