Episode Summary

Here's to You, Mrs. Binder
At a birthday party for Stacey and Amanda's father, Ned meets the recently widowed Lucy Binder, the best friend of the girls' mother. The sisters aren't too crazy about Mrs. Binder but Ned finds they share an interest in hoticulture and they begin to click right away. They go to her greenhouse to check out her flowers. Ned invited her to the upcoming Renaissance Fair. She accepts, then demurs--then they both fly into each others arms and kiss. Some days later Stacey and Amanda are at the apartment when Ned comes in walking on air and being nice to everyone, including his combative sister-in-law. Stacey knows the cause of Ned's good humor is whoever he's dating, but Ned won't identify her. Later Stacey and Amanda go out shopping with her mother and Mrs. Binder. When Ellen goes to the bathroom, Lucy guiltily and tearfully tells Stacey she's having an affair with Ned. When Stacey gets home she lays into Ned (who is in full Renaissance garb) for toying with this woman, the best friend of her mother. Ned says the affection is genuine and he'll keep up the affair. He meets Lucy, also dressed for the Fair, at the greenhouse. But Mrs. Binder, unaware of Ned and Stacey's true relationship, can't carry on the affair any longer. Ned returns home depressed. Eric tries to cheer him up unsuccessfully, but Stacey does a little bit better of a job when she promises to help soothe his worries with hot chocolate and tequila.moreless
