    Pops begins closing the diner early and lying about where he's going. It becomes very mysterious to Shawn and Marlon, who begin wondering what he is up to and follow him one evening. They see him with another woman and immediately lose respect for Pops. In actuality, though, the woman is a friend of Pops' who is his dance teacher. She is helping Pops learn to dance better so he can surprise their mother on their anniversary. However, miscommunication after miscommunication ensues between Pops and his sons, most of which is really funny, and Shawn and Marlon don't realize that Pops isn't actually cheating until Pops demonstrates his newfound dancing skills, by doing the Tango with Marlon. Now THAT is funny to see! Good episode overall. The plot left a bit to be desired, but it finished strong.

    • (Shawn and Marlon tell Pops they know what he's been doing, but he thinks they mean about dancing)
      Pops: Aw man, what a relief!
      Shawn: What?!
      Pops: You have no idea how hard it is to keep a secret like that. Boy, not that cha know I feel, I'm relieved. I feel good.
      Marlon: But Pop, how can you lie to Mom like that?
      Pops: I know I shouldn't lie to your Momma son, but I'm doin' it to try to help my marriage.
      Shawn: And how is Carmella gonna help?
      Pops: Well, you know, I've been kinda rusty lately. I was thinking, you know, for my anniversary I could keep up with Mama.
      Shawn: Well Pop, this ain't the kind of thing you practice with another woman. I mean, how do you think Ma's gonna feel if she finds out?
      Pops: Well, she won't care! Half the fun is switching partners. I don't know if you boys know this, but you know, your Momma and I were big time swingers back in the old days
      Marlon: Whoa. Whoa. Whoa, c'mon Pop, I don't think I wanna hear this. (sits down in the booth) But go on.
      Pops: And yo Momma was good!
      Marlon: Momma?
      Pops: Good! Much better than me. I used to feel so self-conscious. I would just to sit back and watch the guys line up and take a whirl at her. (Shawn and Marlon gasp) And ya know your Momma could take two or three at one time.
      (Shawn and Marlon start freaking out)
      Shawn: That's disgusting man! That's sick!
      Pops: Nonsense. It's good, healthy fun. That's why I'm taking lessons. I used to practice in front of the mirror. But see, this is much better. Only thing is I just hate to pay for it.
      Marlon: Pay for it? Have you no shame old man?!
      Pops: Why should I? Carmella should get something outta this.
