To the amazement of the guys at the bar, Cliff is boasting that a woman, Lynette Cahill, that he met in Florida has been sending him love letters, and he even produces at least the envelope from one of those letters. Is Cliff telling the truth about Lynette's relationship to him? Even more amazing, at least to Carla, is that Drusilla Dimeglio, Carla's evil principal from her childhood days at St. Clete's School for Wayward Girls, is sitting in the bar. Or at least she thinks it's her. Carla vowed vengeance on the woman who caused her childhood to be a living hell.

Sam Malone: [about Drusilla Dimeglio, who is currently in the pool room] I can't believe that's the same woman whose head you were about to shave.
Carla Tortelli: Yeah, yeah, I almost went through with it too. I mean, I came that close, and I could have done it easy, Sammy. I mean, she's not as young as she used to be. But, uh, I stopped. God was testing me Sam, and I passed.
Drusilla Dimeglio: [walks out from the pool room and speaks to Sam] Oh, hello there.
[addresses Carla]
Drusilla Dimeglio: Come on Carla, it's your turn.
Carla Tortelli: OK, I'll be right with you.

The Belles of St. Clete's (#3.24)
12 May 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Cliff is receiving letters from Florida which he says come from the woman he had a vacation romance with. Norm opens the letter and finds out its a lie but when the guys in the bar want him to read it he improvises a love letter. And Carla sees her old school principal in the bar. She wants to take revenge on her and shave her head but at the end they become friends.

Now this is the episode where I laughed a lot. The ending with the principal having half shaved head was hilarious. Also loved Norm's improvisation of the letter. And Diane made me laugh like never before with her losing her temper at Frasier.
