Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Karen Pepper
'Dr. Dave' Coordinator


Karen Postell Pepper suffers a hemorrhage to the nose while preparing to enter the "Making Love Work" TV studio with a question to ask Dr. Dave. Nate prepares to go on his first camping trip in 2 years (where he went without Brenda), with Lisa, Maya, and Dana, Todd, and their toddler daughter Spencer. By the time they arrive, though, he realizes he won't be able to drink 3 cans of beer that night or smoke cigarettes. Ruth becomes interested in Arthur the more she gets to know him, and rents a movie whose score he says he favors. David believes Russell is gay, though Claire doesn't and defends him from Olivier's harsh criticism. An obese man's body causes trouble for everyone when it falls from its extra-large coffin and Arthur Ruth, Claire, and Russell must move it back. Lisa is annoyed with their friends' constant claims of affection for one another, but Nate simply grows jealous and worried that he can't seem to have any of those moments with Lisa refusing to smoke or hike with him....

Repression and Relief
5 November 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While in a line waiting for Dr. Dave's show "Making Love Work", Karen Postell Pepper dies of nose bleed. Lisa, Nate and Maya go camping with another couple and their son. Ruth rents the 1972 "Silent Running" for Arthur Martin. Claire makes love with Russell, and David believes he is gay. Nate hikes alone to the top of a mountain, has an erotic dreams on Brenda and later he has sex with Lisa in the woods.

In this episode, Nate explodes with Lisa, and after having sex, it seems that their relationship may work. The sixth sense of David feels that Russell is gay, but Claire does not believe, while Ruth seems to have some feelings for the weird Arthur Martin. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Fazendo o Amor Dar Certo" ("Making Love Work")
