Back at Tucker's Appliances, Ed is following the manager around the store, pouring out his anger over the fact that the store screwed him on the refrigerator delivery. The manager is clearly blowing him off while Ed spews his venom. Finally, the manager turns around and sneers, "I'm not real crazy about your attitude." Ed is dumbfounded, and the manager says that Ed's "aggressive." He tells Ed to sue him over the botched delivery.
Ed and Carol walk down the street as Carol explains Warren's latest attempt at trying to get into her stockings. Ed says that the locket was a classy move. But then again, Ed was a complete loser in high school. Molly meets up with them on the sidwalk and she and Ed engage themselves in a battle of wordplay using the word "twist" a lot. I wish I could tell you more, but in my notes, all I wrote was "twist, twist, twist and dog shampoo." I've really got to start taking better notes, and writing fewer grocery lists.
At the alley, Phil decorates a tree with a Star of David on top, claiming to have all the bases covered with both the Christians and the Jews. Ed asks about the Hindus. Phil pauses and asks whether Hindus are the special kind of Jews with funny hats. Meanwhile, I choke on my own saliva. Ed changes the subject before the ACLU decides to shut down the show by mentioning that he has devised a scheme to get even with Tucker Appliances. Phil's intrigued. Ed beams with pride as he hands Phil a flyer basically stating that Tucker's Appliance is having an appliance giveaway. It urges the townspeople to show up when the doors open, locate the appliances of their choice, and place their hands upon them. Whoever still has his hand on the appliance at the end of the day wins that appliance. The flyer also advises people not to let the store employees talk them into leaving the store, because that is part of the game. Phil confirms that Ed is one devious bastard.
Carol's back at her crib, listening to her answering-machine messages. Her grandmother is first, telling her that she's knitting Carol a hat and wants to know how big Carol's head is. Gee, Grandma, I don't know. Let's ask every male in Stuckeyville that she's rejected over the years. The list is endless. The second call is from Troy, who tells Carol that he can't wait to see her when he comes to town. Carol's excitement level moves up a few notches as we lurch headfirst into some...commercials.
