Romance or Relationship of Convenience--You Decide
27 January 2019 | by chauge-73253See all my reviews

Laverne finds out that Carmine has been making the rounds of the ladies in Milwaukee and tells Shirley, who explains to her that they have an open relationship as long as nobody knows any details (basically the pass Shirley gives herself to hold out for a doctor, which Carmine has no designs on being). But now that the toothpaste is out of the tube, a fight ensues and the two break up. Shirley tells Laverne that to make up for starting all this, she needs to have her new boyfriend come up with a colossal date for her to make Carmine jealous. Instead, he shows up with the nerdiest guy they went to high school with--Eraserhead Warren. Shirley does her best to make lemons out of lemonade and gets Carmine to realize that she is not going to be a wallflower homebody. You can probably predict how this ends. The episode does give a good clarification of what the relationship of Shirley and Carmine is, and what it wants to be.
