    And that's the basic premise for this episode. Watching Felix's jealousy gradually grow, to the point where he has to spy on his ex-wife is what makes this show funny. Of course it doesn't help that the man Gloria's seeing is Nancy's brother, and that he is way more in sync with the woman Gloria is, than Felix probably will ever be. This episode goes to Tony Randall no doubt, and he wins most of the performance, by simple gestures. The comedy here is in his face and body, and what Felix has bottled up inside. the scrabble game with the menacing words was a nice touch, and the twist at the end, when Gloria knows they are in the apartment is very good too. Although I prefered the 2 handers between Oscar and Felix, this one has some good comedy in it.moreless

    • Nancy: He told me he thinks very highly of Gloria.
      Felix: And if he thinks very highly of her, that means he likes her very much. And after like comes love. First like, then love! It's the razor's edge!
      Nancy: No, Felix, the razor's edge is love and hate.
      Oscar: (muttering) I'd like to give him the razor's edge!

    • Gloria: (handing Felix's shirts to Oscar) Well, I brought his shirts over.
      Nancy: You still do his shirts?
      Gloria: Oh, just his sport shirts. The dress shirts he sends home to his mother.
