Episode Summary

You Bet Your Wife
Stacey is leaving for the movies as Peter is arriving for Ned's poker game and there is a spark of attraction during their brief meeting. At the poker table Ned and Peter are involved in a high-stakes bet which Ned can't cover. Peter won't let Ned renege on his own house rules, so Ned asks him if there is anything of his that he wants. Peter jokingly says a night with his wife. Holding four jacks, Ned agrees to take the bet, which he loses. After the game has broken up and Stacey has returned, Ned deceitfully offers to set Stacey up on a date with Peter, which she accepts. Peter comes around to collect his winnings, the unaware Stacey. Later, after twinges of his conscience (and a few choice words from Amanda, who found out about the unholy bet), Ned races over to Peter's place, hoping he's not too late.moreless

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Stacey: Yeah, Ned, I said I wanted to go out with him, not to be raffled off to him!
        Ned: Hey, how am I supposed to know when you're gonna draw those arbitrary lines?

      • Peter: I tell ya, speakin' o' hot ladies, you snagged yourself one there with ah, Stacey. And it's nice to see you've progressed beyond that, uh, blow-up doll.
        Ned: Well, the blow-up doll was more lifelike, I'll admit.

      • Ned: Rico, Rico, Rico, what are you doing?
        Eric: I'm setting up the poker table like you told me!
        Ned: Like I told you? I don't think so. I think what I said was the coasters go to the right, napkins to the left.
        Eric: The guys like it the other way around!
        Ned: And I think I also requested the Snack Size Milky Way and yet I appear to be looking at the Fun Size Milky Way!
        Eric: OK fine, you don't like the job I'm doing with refreshments then I'll go right back to decorations!
        Amanda (to Stacey): Oh, those two are an Oprah show waiting to happen.

    • NOTES (1)

      • End credit sequence: A different version of the opening teaser scene in which Ned comes home to find Stacey sitting in the mess she's made of the apartment. Only after picking up her things, Ned picks Stacey up bodily too--and dumps her over the balcony rather than take her to her room.
