  • Frank's tribute

    7.5
    Okay, so the ending with Frank wiping the cream off of Marie's face was pretty weird, but this was an enjoyable episode of Everybody Loves Raymond. It was refreshing to see a Frank-centric episode, appreciating one of the great comedic minds of the last quarter century in Peter Boyle.



    The tribute video put together was well-done (how they were all talking about chocolate "I like him hot with marshmellows!") and was actually the kind of cutting edge humor which was often absent from the long-running sitcom.



    One of the better season three episodes here, and it also introduced us to Seinfeld's Uncle Leo, who would go on to become a recurring character.moreless

    • (after Ray finds out that Frank is man of the year at his lodge)
      Marie: Your father's very excited about this honor.
      Ray: He knows. I thought they surprised them.
      Marie: Not anymore—that's how they lost the last man of the year.

    • Frank: (About the tribute video) I didn't get it. And what's with Carrelli saying he likes me hot with marshmallows?
      Ray: I told you to get rid of that.
      Robert: It was cute.

    • Marie: You want to know why people don't love you, Frank? You want to know? Because you offer them nothing. That's right. You have to give love, Frank, to get it, and you have never, ever been willing to do that. You just take and take and take, and you expect everyone to accept your obnoxious horse's ass of a personality, and everybody has to put up with it, because it's you! You know what the sad part is? You are surrounded by family who happen to love you anyway, and you push them away. You push us all away! (pauses) You don't have to push anymore. (walks away)

    • Marie: (after telling Frank all the things she loves about him) Now can I ask you something?
      Frank: Let's go to bed.
      Marie: Oh, come on, Frank! We were talking!
      Frank: I'm tired. I want to go to bed.
      Marie: Oh, sure. You got what you needed from me, and now you're want to go to bed. What else is new?
      Frank: What do you want?
      Marie: I want to have a conversation, Frank. I want to talk to you. Is that asking so much?
      Frank: I know where this is going.

    • Frank: I like you better without the crap on your face.

    • Marie: Would you stop? The boys did nothing wrong. You wanted them to make you a tribute, they made you a tribute.
      Frank: I can't wait for my eulogy.
