Sam is being interviewed by his old buddy, Dave Richards, for a radio program. In it, Sam refers to Diane as one of his old love bunnies, to which she takes offense. That is a small relationship issue compared to what Norm might be facing. Norm's neighbor, Phyllis Henshaw, has a sneaking suspicion that her husband, Ron, and Norm's wife, Vera, are having an affair, a suspicion she shares with Norm. Although Norm is at first unconvinced, Phyllis convinces him that they should hire a private detective to find out for sure. Carla recommends to them her cousin, Santo. While Norm and Phyllis await the ultimate news, they ponder their fate if the news is bad. They both vow to have an affair as well, with each other being the most convenient possibility. Will Norm and Phyllis do what they believe Ron and Vera are doing, and/or will it be predicated on what Santo finds out? Written by Huggo

Love Thy Neighbor (#4.8)
14 May 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Norm's neighbor comes in with the bad news as apparently her husband and Vera are having an affair. They decide to hire a private detective. And if there really is an affair they think of having one too. but the detective has good news as nothing is happening and they don't need an affair.

It was alright. It wasn't too funny but at the same time Norm is a great character and they definitely had a lot of good scenes, including how everyone was trying to listen to them.

The part with Sam and Diane was not too great either, it was more annoying than funny to be honest.
