Tony has trouble dumping his new girl.
22 July 2008 | by (Houston, Tx, USA, Earth) – See all my reviews

I have been a big fan of the "Taxi" series, and now am re-watching all episodes on DVD.

This episode starts at the local cabbie hangout, all the usual suspects are there, while Tony Danza as Tony Banta begins to tell all of them how his new girl crowds him too much, and he wants to break up with her but doesn't know how.

They all tell him, including Marilu Henner as Elaine Nardo, just look her in the eye and be honest with her. When she walks in and he tells her, she simply won't accept it.

His girl also happens to be a cabbie, but in a different borough, but things get stick when Gail Edwards as Denise shows up as the new cabbie where Tony works. When he tells her again, unvarnished, that it is over between them, she tells him she likes that in a man, and she will never give him up.

Things get further complicated when Denise sets a new record for fares collected in her first day of work.

There is a side story about Alex getting into a fender-bender, they re-create the accident with models on a wooden crate. When Alex complains of a headache Denise gives him a couple of capsules, and his headache goes away. But they are drugs, "uppers" which she uses to stay awake during 18-hour shifts, and Alex gets giddy and talkative, unlike his usual demeanor.

All in all an entertaining episode, but not one of my personal favorites.
