Did You Know?

[Danny and Elaine have been fighting since their marriage]
Elaine:I don't hate you, Danny.
Danny:Well, you give the best damn impression of it I've ever seen.
Elaine:I know.
Danny:Why do you do that, Elaine? Why do you treat people that way?
Elaine:It's a long story.
Danny:I got time.
Elaine:I had a sister, once. She was a couple of years older than me. Her name was Diana. She was bright and beautiful and good and kind. She was one of these people that made everyone around her feel good. When she was sixteen, she was killed in a car accident.

Episode 32, 25 April 2010
Author: kevin olzak ( from Youngstown, Ohio

Episode 32 begins with Chester still in the hospital,not recognizing his wife,and believing Dr.Kanter(in his last appearance)is a butcher("the lamb chops were fatty!"),which Benson agrees with.When the doctor leaves to perform another operation,Benson hopes it's not a vasectomy! Carol accepts Jodie's marriage proposal,and introduces him to her overprotective father "Boomer" David(Michael Conrad),who is aware that Jodie is gay and threatens to "knock his teeth down his throat" if his princess ever brings "that faggot around." Elaine confesses her love to Danny,and the reasons for her bad behavior: her loving sister was killed at 16,and her father wished that it had been Elaine instead.Burt tells Mary that he works so hard because his father was a beaten man,failing to succeed with all his many dreams,and Burt doesn't want to end up the same way.Sally threatens to quit because she's in love with Burt,but he convinces her to stay since she's a terrific secretary.Jessica,Mary,Corinne,and Eunice share their depression in the Tate kitchen,and Corinne describes Jessica's symptoms as just being "horny," which Jessica thinks is a funny word(she just doesn't know what it means).Corinne has gained six pounds since her wedding,as the death of Tim's mother also ended any intimacy between them,and Eunice is five ponds heavier waiting on Dutch.Mary reveals that she enjoys sex in the mornings,and confesses that sex with her first husband "was like a news bulletin: brief,unexpected,and usually a disaster!" Eunice admits she likes it in the dark,while Corinne admits she likes to see a person's face,which confuses Jessica("I don't think it really matters where you do it,just so long as you do it well!")
