Loretta Tortelli:[to Nick] Well, this isn't easy to say, and I don't know what song it's from, but there's a line in some song that goes, "I've got you under my skin".
Sam Malone:"I've Got You Under My Skin", Loretta.
Loretta Tortelli:What? Oh no, this is going to complicate things.

If Ever I Would Leave You (#3.20), 11 May 2014
Author: ComedyFan2010 from Canada

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Loretta leaves Nick and gets all his stuff. He comes to the bar to get Carla back, but she doesn't fall for it. He gets a job in the bar and keeps on trying. Everyone, even Diane, think she should give him a chance because he is trying really hard. When Loretta comes to the bar to ask him back, he refuses. But turns out that he thought it was just a test and when Carla tells him it wasn't he ends up leaving to Loretta again.

Well it is a very much a Nick episode, but surprisingly it wasn't as bad as I thought. They made him more likable for most of the episode even though we knew how it will end.
