Episode Summary

Dorsey vs. Dorsey
Stacey is at the restaurant with Alex and her cutesy-pie-lovers act is getting a little old for Eric--and one suspects for Alex, too. Ned comes in and sees them and he and Stacey begin sniping at each other. In an effort to eradicate traces of Stacey from the apartment, Ned turns her old room into a rec room. He also agrees to invest $65,000 in a piece of real estate Amanda wants badly. Stacey arrives at Ned's with her lawyer and the two women gang up on him, informing him that he breached his pre-nuptial agreement and that Stacey can legally keep her room in his apartment. At a racquetball game with Alex, Ned slams him in the crotch with a serve. Amanda comes to Ned's to get a check from him, followed by Stacey, who accuses him of assaulting Alex on purpose. Stacey's lawyer emerges from the bedroom wearing lingerie. Stacey leaves in a furor, followed by her sister Amanda--who makes sure to return for the check. Back at his apartment, Alex tells Stacey that he's tired of the war between her and Ned. He doesn't want to be caught in the middle of it anymore and so he's breaking off his relationship with Stacey. Dejectedly, she returns to Ned's apartment to spend the night. She lays her head down on a table, since her room is otherwise bare, and Ned brings her a blanket and pillow. Then we hear him nailing the door shut.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • When Eric and Ned are first shooting pool in his new "game room," neither of them shoots at the cue ball after the break, and Ned takes two shots in a row.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Lela Cooper: And by the way, your wife's right to use the residence is enforceable by court order, contempt citation or jail term, if necessary.
        Ned (to Eric, supposedly acting as his lawyer): For God's sake, would you say something?
        Eric: Leave him alone.

      • Ned: Ms. Cooper! Did you know your client signed a twelve-page legally binding pre-nuptial agreement? Ad hoc propter ad hoc sic semper ad nauseum Ed McMahon!

      • Stacey: Well, I just hope your having $250 worth of amusement, Ned, because that's how much you're paying Ms. Cooper for every hour of her time.
        Ned: Two-fifty? Hope that comes with a pants-down spankin'!

      • Ned: Rico, pull the car around!
        Eric: Uh, actually, I came here with Amanda.
        Ned: Fine. Pull her around.

      • Amanda: Is there any way we can come up with sixty-five thousand [dollars]?
        Eric: Well, if we sell everything including our son and print some money, still--no.

    • NOTES (2)

      • End credit sequence: Ned continues to play racquetball (and keeps score!) while an immobile Alex lies prostrate and face-down on the court.

      • When Stacey is sitting at the keyboard talking to Alex in his apartment, she appears to have a cardboard container in her hands from which she's removed a pill or two. Could this be the Prozac or other medication that Ned has sometimes said she takes?
