Eddie is back in Boston with the ice show, and with the show comes beautiful East German skater Franzi Schrempf, who is notorious for dating her male partners. Franzi finds Sam rude and crude. She likes simpler men. Could that be Eddie? Does Carla have anything about which to worry? Carla suspects that Franzi and Eddie are having an affair but has no proof whatsoever. However the gang at the bar do find out that Franzi has fallen for some guy in the ice show. Sam tells Carla that if Eddie has strayed, perhaps she pushed him into it by not being nicer to him and by not being more "feminine". Carla is repulsed by the idea by being a frilly woman, so she confronts Eddie in her usual way. That doesn't work, so she does try being frilly and subservient at a poker night at the house. Could this be the new Carla in an effort to hold on to her man? Meanwhile, Rebecca gets two corporate tickets for Woody to a Patriots game. Norm, Cliff and Frasier compete to see who will be his date. Written by Huggo

Carla LeBec: Listen Eddie. I want you to promise me something. I want you to promise me that if you ever find someone who makes you happier than I do, that you'll tell me.
Eddie LeBec: Oh yeah, right.
Carla LeBec: What do you mean by that?
Eddie LeBec: You'd kill me.
Carla LeBec: No, I won't. Now tell me the truth: are you having an affair?
Eddie LeBec: No.
Carla LeBec: Did you believe me when I said I wouldn't kill you?
Eddie LeBec: No.
Carla LeBec: Then if you were having an affair, you would still be saying no.

Those Lips, Those Ice (#7.5)
4 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Eddie is part if the ice show and his partner Franzi comes to the bar. Cliff heard that she had an affair with all of her partners and Carla gets nervous. There are also some rumors about Franzi being seen with a melon headed man. Carla tries to keep Eddie by being the perfect housewife but then finds out that he never had an affair.

The story of the episode doesn't sound that exciting but I was laughing all through it. Had so many great moments. In the main story the best part was Carla getting mad when she finds out there was no affair and throwing everything from the poker table outside. The part with Sam wondering how to join communism was wonderful as well. And Frasier was the best as always with his suitcase phone. Ah the days when there were no cell phones! Him putting the password as Jung's address (and wondering before if it was Freud's birthday) was brilliant.
