Episode Summary

Skippy's Revenge
At work, Pat Kirkland's son Skip is second-guessing Ned's ideas and generally undermining his position in the company. Ned confronts him, and Skip tells Ned how he was responsible for his being sent to military school 14 years before (in a story told in flashback). Ned delivers an ultimatum to the elder Kirkland: it's either Skippy or him, and he's ready to take clients with him if he goes. Kirkland shows him the door. Ned takes Eric with him, sure that Kirkland is bluffing, but he's not. At the muffin shop, Amanda delivers the joyous news that she's finally pregnant, but the occasion is dampened by Eric's new state of unemployment. Ned manages to steal an account from the agency, and he fortuitously meets Lloyd Bridges, who Stacey is interviewing for a magazine. Bridges agrees to endorse the client's product and makes a commercial. Ned and Eric are exulting in their success when the news breaks that an out-of-control Bridges has been arrested for shoplifting.moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Ned (to a potential client on the phone): You know, to be quite honest with ya, hate to trash-talk a former employer, but ah, they worship Satan.

    • Stacey: Well, Ned, you've had a busy day. You lost your job, you lost your best friend his job, and you took food out of the mouth of their unborn infant.
      Ned: Now comes Miller time.

    • Eric: I have no job!
      Amanda: What! You were fired?
      Eric: No, no, no, well actually I, I quit, but only because Ned whipped me into a cult-like frenzy.
      Ned: Hey, I only made the Kool-Aid, he drank it.

    • Ned: Pat, how can you pick him [Skippy]? I, I'm your golden boy! He, he, he's fresh out of college; for God sakes you can still smell the bong resin on him!

    • Skip Kirkland: I was put through hell at that school! I was separated from my family, and forced to endure long, bizarre hazing rituals--often with homo-erotic undertones.
      Ned: So far I'm not hearin' a downside. (laughs)
      Skip: I never stopped thinkin' about what you did to me. Even as I was forced to do naked push-ups while broad-shouldered cadets whipped my buttocks with a willow switch!
      Ned: Still not hearin' that downside.

    • Pat Kirkland: What happened? What happened!
      Ned: He broke your vase! (to young Skippy) Your father told you not to play around it because it's expensive.
      Young Skip Kirkland: But--
      Pat: No buts about it, I mean this is the last straw, you are going to go to military school!
      Skip: But Daddy, he did it!
      Ned: Oh, lying too. Six years at the Citadel will teach him some honesty.
