  • Roy berates a rap band singing the national anthem at the Bosox game and boasts he can do better. Brian makes some calls and sets up the gig for Roy, who winds up fainting on TV -- which is reshown constantly on the next day\\\'s newscast.

    Roy\\\'s fainting at the Red Sox game is classic, particularly when the news team plays it and rewinds it in rapid succssion, then uses it as a ploy to have Roy \\\"answer\\\" questions. The sub plot is that Fay gets upset because Joe corrected something she did at work, then after she breaks down in tears she vows to pay back Joe for the money her mistake cost Sandpiper. When the whole gang goes to the Red Soz game to watch Roy\\\'s repeat performance at the anthem (he convinced Helen to give him some vocal pointers), Antonio is intrigued and delighted at all the souvenirs and foods for sale. He purchase a foam finger. Shortly thereafter, Joe and Fay make up, and Fay (who has been counting pennies since vowing to pay back Joe) says, \\\"Oh, maybe now I can buy a souvenir,\\\" to which Joe utters the classic, \\\"Allow me -- Antonio, please give Fay the finger.\\\" This is an all-time classic episode.
