    The set up of this episode was Helen, in an attempt to make Stanley jealous, wanted to create a imaginary "lover". Three scenes standout. Jeffrey trying to explain to his boy what an affair is was really good comedy. The scene in the hot tub had good laughs. Stanley's disinterest in Helen's attempt to make him jealous set up perhaps the funniest scene of the episode, Stanley's reaction to Helen's declaration that she was having an affair. The end of the episode was rewarding for the audience(espically Helen}. I thought this episode captured the dynamics of Helen and Stanley's relationship very well. I rate this a great epidode
