Episode Summary

Loganberry's Run
Amanda is harried and harassed by the plethora of details involved in running the muffin shop, while Ned treats it as his plaything. Stacey bring her co-workers from "Skyward" magazine to the shop to give the place "literary ambiance," but all they do is take up space and spend little money. Amanda demands that Ned be a silent partner and she resists his ideas, especially the one about selling a loganberry muffin.

At the ad agency Eric has to fire an employee, a task he's ill-suited for. He finally works up the nerve to do it on the third try, then promptly hires the guy to work as the muffin shop's full-time (and unnecessary) accountant. Meanwhile the loganberry muffin has become an obsession with Ned, who tries all sorts of tricks to get Amanda to make it.moreless

      • Amanda: ...loganberries are stupid berries. It would be a stupid muffin and I'm not making them.
        Ned: Loganberries are not stupid berries. OK? As a young boy, I used to run naked through the loganberry patch...smearing its...delectable juices all across my hairless...pre-pubescent body.
        Amanda: Oh, wow! Ok, not only am I not making loganberry muffins, but now I'm gonna wake up screaming for the rest of my life!

      • Ned: Whaddaya need, buddy?
        Eric: It's about this stupid promotion they gave me--acting assistant to the accounting co-manager--turns out it's just a fancy title to get me to do their dirty work!

      • Ned (Shouting on the street as he leaves the muffin shop): Get your muffins here! All nude muffins!

      • Amanda: Stacey, I thought you were gonna be helping me today.

        Amanda: Any interest in giving the bathroom a kind of clean, non-uriney atmosphere?
