Episode Summary

A Tender Trap
Stacey engineers an "accidental" meeting with Megan Foster, whose contacts in the publishing world could help get Stacey a staff job at a magazine. But Megan turns out to be much more interested in Ned. Stacey pleads with Ned not to treat this woman like one of his one-night stands. Trying to help Stacey, Ned acceeds to all of Megan's sexual demands, which are exhausting him. Meanwhile Eric can commiserate with Ned--he and Amanda are trying to have another child, and during her ovulation, she's putting him through his paces like a "drill sergeant!"moreless

    • TRIVIA (2)

    • QUOTES (8)

      • Ned: She's [Megan Foster] bent me in directions that would make Gumby scream.

      • Ned: What the hell are you so happy about?
        Eric: Well I don't want to brag, but guess who didn't have any sex today and wont be getting' any tonight.
        Ned: Really?
        Eric: Yeah, Amanda stopped ovulating today and she won't be fertile again for 25 days. Count em' up, 25 sex-free days.
        Ned: No sex.
        Eric: Yeah.
        Ned: Just the idea of that is powerfully arousing.

      • Stacey: "Then"? You'll see her "then"? What--? Wh—what--? What do you mean? Why would you she her then.
        Ned: Ah, Same old, same old. She wants to grab onto my biceps and scream "daddy-o".

      • Ned: Good mornin' m'little cornflower!
        Stacey: No, bad morning. Do you realize I've sent out twenty resumes and not even one magazine has called me? I'm so depressed I'm eating carmel corn and turkey jerky for breakfast.
        Ned: Well, they say that adds shine to your coat.

      • Ned: She [Megan] is a freak, Stacey! A sexual circus sideshow! I would have run for my life weeks ago, but I didn't wanna ruin it for you! And I was chained to her radiator.

      • Ned: You're gonna get a job. You're gonna get a good job. And you wanna know why?
        Stacey: Gee Ned, why? Because the circus is in town? Because Taco Bell is hiring? Because the mall needs speed bumps in its parking lot?

      • Stacey (to Ned): Are you so threatened by the concept of two people having sex beacuse they're in love? And know each other's names?

      • Ned: Rico, this Megan's killin' me. I haven't slept all week, and the only food I've eaten is yogurt off her neck.

    • NOTES (2)

      • End credit sequence: Ned is in bed with Megan, only this time her sexual demands apparently bring on his death! After trying to get him to respond several times, Megan says something to the effect of "Well, it's been a long time since I've done this," an apparent (and rather shocking!) reference to necrophelia!

      • Farrah Forke, who plays Megan Foster in this episode, co-starred for three seasons with Thomas Haden Church (Ned) on the long-running sitcom Wings.
