Episode Summary

EDIT
Model Husband
AIRED:
Ned and Stacey are having dinner at the Moyer's house. Ned has tickets to see the Knicks, but Amanda tells Eric he can't go, that he has to watch their son Howard that night. Ned argues with Amanda but she's adamant, making it seem like Eric is just a little bit henpecked. At work the next day, Ned is going over a storyboard with supermodel Alexa Miroslav, who he has hired to appear in a commercial the agency is doing for a client's sport truck. Eric comes into the office and nervoulsy meets Alexa. While alone with her for a time, his fumbling manner charms her. In the limo on the way to the client's party, Stacey is talking on the phone, eating caviar, and generally acting like a rube. Ned makes a stop to pick up Eric, who is still being nagged by Amanda. In the few minutes Ned is inside, Stacey strikes up a conversation with Alexa, who has very simple lines in the commercial: "Hey, stranger. What took you so long?" But Stacey, veteran of two acting classes in college, fills Alexa full of talk about method acting, motivation and subtext. The result is that when Ned comes out to the car, he now has a supermodel who delivers her lines in a wildly overemotional fashion. After the party at which Alexa has made a drunken spectacle of herself, Ned, Eric and Stacey bring the model back to her hotel room. Her confidence is totally shot, for which Ned rightfully blames Stacey. Alexa wants Eric to spend the night with her for support, and Ned implores him to to it. Eric calls Amanda to tell her the plan. She can hardly believe what she hears and orders Eric home. Eric gets indignant, and tells his wife he will be home "when work permits." By the next morning Eric has not returned home, something which Amanda blames on Ned's influence. At the commercial shoot, director Ned is harried--he's done over 80 takes with his overwrought supermodel, none of them even close to good. Frantic, Ned wants Eric to talk to Alexa. Amanda arrives onset to find her husband with the model. The husband and wife talk out their frustrations and reconcile. Ned suggests Alexa say her lines as if talking to Eic, who stands just off-camera. She does, and the take is a good one. Ned is ecstatic, and plants a big kiss--on Eric! which prompts Amanda to tells her husband, "You are really gonna have to spend less time with him."moreless
