Episode Summary

It Happened One Night
Feeling ill and irritated with her sister's complaining about her marriage to Ned, Amanda lashes out at Stacey, telling her she's responsible for her situation and that if she really wants her life to change, she should do something about it. Stacey abruptly decides to leave Ned and flees back to her parents' house. Her dad takes her to a coffee shop to talk, where Stacey tells him the marriage is a sham, but Saul doesn't grasp the true meaning. Ned arrives with Amanda at the Colberts and talks to Ellen. As Ellen attempts to counsel Ned, the younger ones both learn more than they want to know about the older couple. Amanda comes by the coffee shop to talk to Stacey. While there, the two of them see Stacey's old boyfriend Joey, who is now a pot-bellied father of six driving a bread truck. They flash back to the same coffee shop years earlier before their high school prom, where we see Stacey dressed in "Flashdance" gear, Amanda looking like Ally Sheedy in "The Breakfast Club," Eric as a nerdy busboy and Ned as a long-haired leather-clad biker. After reflection, Stacey agrees to go back to Ned.moreless

        Amanda: I'm sorry to barge in unannounced. Eric seems to think that people will be impressed if he finishes an entire Big Gulp!
        Ned: He completed the mighty cup? (to Eric off-camera) Pee with pride, brother!

      • Ned (to Amanda): OK, you're the one who filled her head with those notions, you're the one that'll empty it out again.
        Eric: Ned, she's really not feeling that well!
        Ned: Hey! My draggin' your wife outta your house is none o' your concern, pal.
        Eric: Gee, you, you think it would be.

      • Amanda: I'm gonna die in the snow.
        Ned: Alright, that's the spirit, c'mon. Look, we'll stop at the drug store and I'll get ya some of that nighttime-sniffling-sneezing-coughing-I-lost-my-fake-wife-you're-gonna-help-get-her-back medicine.

    • NOTES (3)

      • During the coffee shop flashback scene, Wham's "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" is played.

      • End credit sequence: A repeat of the scene of Eric trying to hail a cab for the group in the snow, only this time he's successful--after being hit by one.

      • Many databases and episode guides credit the actor who guest stars as Joey as Kenny Johnson, but the show's credits clearly read Johnston.
