Episode Summary

The Kidnapping of Stanley
It's Stanley's 35th birthday and Marshall, Carlotta and Kathleen expect him to get the gift of cash, so naturally they all suck up to him. But instead of cash, a cake arrives with two ladies inside -- who kidnap him. It's soon revealed that the kidnapping was arranged by Big Guy, so Stanley could find out who his friends really are -- his "friends" being whichever family members come up with the ransom. Needless to say that Marshall, Carlotta and Kathleen aren't his friends... Wild Bill and Bootsie work feverishly to come up with the cash, but it's Mother B who saves the day (with cash she picked from the money tree that Big Guy left her).moreless

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Carlotta: Anyway, Stanley, you're independently wealthy. You don't need any more cash. I, on the other hand, am just a step away from turning these drapes into a dress.
        Stanley: Oh, that'd make a great picture. We could take out an ad: "Won't you give this woman a home?'

        Carlotta: Marshall found the name and phone number of Big Guy's attorney in Bootsie's address book.
        Marshall: I couldn't help it. It was lyin' open in her purse.

        Carlotta: Mark my words, Stanley, you cannot go around giving away wealth to people who've never had it. It just makes 'em more greedy.
        Marshall: That's right. Like those people in the Salvation Army at Christmastime. You give one of 'em a nickel, on the next block will be another one shaking the same stupid bell.

        Marshall: Stanley, remember how when we were little, I was such a sickly child and you never wanted to play with me.
        Stanley: Marshall, it wasn't because you were sickly, it was because you were whiney.

        Marshall: Just keep smilin', Carlotta. Let it seem as though we're havin' the time of our lives.
        Carlotta: I am smilin', Marshall. Someday this nightmare will be over. You and I will have all the money and these people will be tied to mules, working in our fields.

        Marshall: Mother, I think you've had far too much to drink. Let's take this wine and put it over here 'til dessert.
        Mother B: Marshall, I have not had too much to drink. I know so because when I have had too much to drink, I throw up.
