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.

Man, what is it with these East German babes? All week long, I have been trying phone calls, flowers, the whole thing. What am I doing wrong?

Well Sam, I see no alternative. You're going to have to become a Communist.
What do you do, do you apply for membership or something?
