Kelly has returned from France, and with her is Henrí, a Lothario of a Frenchman who is out to steal Kelly away from Woody. Everyone is aware of Henrí's intentions, everyone that is except for Kelly. Kelly, in her naiveté, thinks that Henrí's overt attempts to steal her away from Woody are all in jest. Woody finally threatens Henrí, which Kelly thinks rude, impolite and immature on Woody's part. Sam thinks that Henrí might actually be able to steal Kelly away since Woody and Kelly have yet to consummate their relationship. As such, Woody decides to consummate their relationship, taking Kelly to a seedy motel as "Mr. and Mrs. Malone". A third party with an ulterior motive may make them change their mind about what they are about to do. Meanwhile, Cliff plans on having his brain cryogenically frozen just before he dies. With Frasier's help, Cliff brings in a demonstration of the process. Written by Huggo

Even a Frozen Head Would Laugh!
3 September 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Kelly is back and Woody so excited, but she has brought with her a handsome French photographer who is very friendly to her. There is some great conversation between Woody and Sam. Woody is so literal that it leads to great point counterpoint. A secondary, and much funnier, subplot involves Cliff making downpayment with a cryogenics guy, to have his head frozen upon his death. This leads to one of the greatest practical jokes. Absolutely great episode.
