Episode Summary

EDIT
Ship of Fools (2)
AIRED:
Nell continues to confront Tony about wanting to be with him again, following the advice Addy gave her earlier on telling him her true feelings, and sings "Blue Angel" to him. But then Tammy shows up and Tony tells Nell he is married to her and they are on their honeymoon on the ship. Nell loses her voice because she is shocked Tony is married to another 18 year old girl now, and she can't sing for the gig unless she gets it back. She rests in her cabin room and then chases Addy throughout it and is upset at her. Joey then finds out Tammy is married, and she was the first girl he ever loved. Nell finally gets her voice back. A doctor comes by to check on Nell's voice and tells her she can sing in an hour's time unless she continues to talk, or else any amount of stress can close her voice up again. The doctor tells Nell to go on the deck and take in air and relax so she will be able to sing. On the deck, a guy is sick as Nell warms up her voice. As the guy is about to throw up, Nell gets in his way and he accidentally falls overboard. Nell gets shocked and loses her voice again, trying to get people to see there is a man overboard. Addy shows up and sees Nell trying to go over the railing and thinks she is going to commit suicide over Tony, but she is really trying to get to the guy who fell overboard to she plays charades with Addy to get her to see there is a man overboard. Addy finds out on her own the man is overboard when she notices him herself and tells Nell to forget the game of charades. In the end, Addy is mad at Tony that Nell can't sing because of him, and Tony tells her Tammy dumped him for the social director. Nell finally gets her voice back and sings "Ain't Misbehavin'" on the ship in front of an audience. Nell is happy she made $1,500 for her balloon payment on the Kanisky house by successfully singing on the ship. Tony shows up at the Kanisky house, and after Nell tells the family he lost his voice while she performed on the ship and is a sleazy guy, she takes all that back and agrees to go out with him again.moreless
