Storyline

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

Quotes

[Sam tries to convince Carla to be nicer to Eddie when she suspects that Eddie may be cheating on her, attacks him when he enters the bar and vows to kill "the horny little frog"]
Sam Malone: Murder is not the answer to every one of life's little problems, you know that? First of all, you don't even know if he did anything wrong. And second, if he was a little tempted, maybe you pushed him into it.
Carla LeBec: Oh, what are you talking about?
Sam Malone: Did you ever think that maybe you aren't exactly nice to the guy?

Shades Of The Algonquin Round Table...
30 April 2011 | by (New York, NY USA) – See all my reviews

I love the opening to this episode, and the dysfunctional mother-child relationship it establishes between Woody and Rebecca. That could have been it's own show...

The rest of this outing is very unusual... Eddie may or may not be having an affair with an ice show co-worker with the impossible name of Franzi Schrempf, so Carla decides to do a bad impression of a 1950's television housewife in order to win him back. Yikes...

Frasier shows off his briefcase phone while Carla and Eddie bang against the door of the bar... how romantic! I'm not sure how this idea ever seemed promising to the brilliant Cheers writers, but somewhere along the way this offbeat storyline snuk through the cracks. Cliff does get in a classic anti-Communism rant and Frasier does a great slow burn surrounded by the blue-collar slobs at the poker game, but there's not much here to remember.
