Episode Summary

It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Eric
Ned comes over to Eric's with plans to sneak into the new movie "Turbine Man," but Eric wants to prepare for his big presentation the next day. At that presentation, Ned puts on a very entertaining show and promises to take the clients to meet supermodels, but first Eric gives his very dry and dull report on the accounting numbers. Ned breaks up the presentation by shooting foam darts at Eric and taking the clients away in search of the promised models. Out to dinner with their wives that night, Ned and Eric argue. Eric is furious with Ned for the way he humiliated him and stalks out on the dinner with Amanda. Later Ned comes by the Moyer house, but he finds Eric playing poker with a new bunch of guys and he pointedly refuses to accept Ned's peace offering. Stacey comes home to find Ned putting on a big party with his supposed friends, a motley crew including Cornelius the doorman, Nate and Chazz from the muffin shop, Will (a cabdriver he just met), and Alex Trebek. The party is incredibly dismal and Ned is so lonely he goes to the muffin shop after hours to see if Amanda is up for anything. Meanwhile Eric is finding that his new friend Danny is not such a good match. A cautious person like himself, Danny won't coerce Eric into doing anything exciting like Ned will. Eric and Danny see Ned and Alex Trebek outside the theatre playing "Turbine Man," where Ned is trying to coax Alex Trebek into breaking in with him. Old friends Ned and Eric realize they were meant for each other, while Danny and Alex go off in search of folk dancing.moreless

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Ned (to Eric): You had eleven men about to start a Kevorkian pile.

      • Ned (to Eric): It's no big thing. Come on, don't harsh my mellow.

      • Stacey: Oh stop it, Ned. If everything is OK, why are you sitting here with me on a perfectly good Friday night? You have to admit that is pretty pathetic.

      • Ned: Thinkin' about goin' and seein' that new Sylvester Stallone film "Turbine Man." Stallone plays Benoit Forney, 19th century inventor of the water turbine-- (Lowers voice dramatically) who's out for revenge!

      • Ned: Let's play some cards boys!... Seven card stud is the game, ten buck ante, twenty-forty high-low, hundred dollar limit on the last card.

    • NOTES (1)
