Episode Summary

EDIT
The Skyward's the Limit
Stacey is proud of her latest article for Skyward magazine, "The Secret Rivers of the Northwest." But her boss Mr. Pace cuts out all the parts about toxic waste dumping, and does it rather condescendingly as well. Furious, Stacey talks to the other writers about a work stoppage against Pace. They heartily agree--until the moment he steps out of his office. Pace demands a rewrite and an apology, both due the next day. Driving Stacey to work the next day, Ned is in a great mood, having decided to fly out to L.A. to see Diana. Stacey ruins that mood when she breaks down crying about her failure as a writer. Ned tries to gloss over things, but after he reads the article Stacey left behind in the car, he goes to confront Stacey's boss. But in the meantime, Stacey has been grovelling at Pace's feet in front of the rest of the staff. Ned bursts in and with his usual bombast lambastes Pace, praising Stacey's article, even though he read only the sanitized version. He tells Pace that Stacey will quit her job. Stacey, though grateful later, shuts Ned up and throws him out of the office. Also, Eric has a hard time deciding which one of the cops who patronize the muffin shop expects complimentary muffins and which wants to pay.moreless

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Mr. Pace: Stacey, people have enough unpleasant thoughts when they fly our airline. We don't need to give them more...Controversy is great, as long as it's the kind of controversy that everyone is comfortable with.

      • Stacey (to herself): That's it! You wanna push me, Pace, fine! You've pushed me! I am outta there! You can kiss my Brandeis-educated ass goodbye!

      • Ned: Ah, Nate, I'm goin' crazy. Supposed to have sex with my girlfriend this mornin' before she flew to Los Angeles, but nooo! 'The white zone is for loading and unloading passengers only!'

      • Ned: Stacey, how can you quit your job when you owe money to: me, your parents, Metrobank, the Girls Scouts, public television...
        Stacey: That was just a pledge!
        Ned: You got the Three Tenors totebag!

      • Amanda: Stacey, honey, it's not that we're against you. It, it just really hurts us to see you act like an idiot.

    • NOTES (1)

      • End credit sequence: Once again Ned is driving Stacey to the "library," only this time it's a stretch of empty country road. And once again he tells her to "tuck and roll" as he attempts to dump her out of the car without stopping. Stacey defiantly hangs onto the car door a while, then Ned manuevers the car so that he shakes her off.
