Myrtle Urkel desperately tries one last time to steal Eddie away from his girlfriend, Greta, by getting a makeover with Laura and Maxine's help. Although the makeover is a complete success and he is impressed by her new, urban look. Myrtle quickly realizes that he's not the one for her. She knows that there are other men out there in this world that will love her and to be there for her. She immediately renounces her love for him and leaves his house. Eddie desperately tries to get her to stick around by telling her that his life would be boring without her mixing it up. His pleas ends up being on deaf ears as Myrtle tells him that he can be with Greta all he wants and that she no longer gives a damn about him. She leaves his house and it depresses him now that she's out of his life. Written by Anonymous

Don't Make Me Over (#9.19)
14 November 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Laura gives Myrtle a make over so she can hit on Eddie. but once she does it Myrtle realizes that no matter how package is wrapped Eddie doesn't want her and decides that she doesn't need that

Carl has a female masseuse who is hot and Harriet is jealous.

Well I liked how they wrapped up the Myrtle story. While I am not pro Greta getting what she wants, I am happy that Myrtle changed her mind about Eddie. And the final line of hers was awesome, "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn!". And I loved the scene of her in the store getting all excited about clothes

Carl and Harriet story is not so good, but great acting
