Episode InformationEdit


After Robert had been living in his new apartment for a little while, Marie starts asking questions about it because she hasn't been over there yet. So, Ray pays him a visit.

Upon arriving at the Crown View Apartment building, Ray has an encounter with a beautiful blond woman named Michelle in the elevator. And shortly after walking through the door at Robert's apartment, he meets another beautiful woman, Sandy.

Ray is happy to see that the apartment building is full of gorgeous young women, and starts going over to visit Robert every day just to check out the girls. It's all fun for Ray until Debra finds out what's happening.

Running GagsEdit

As always, Ray refers to Debra with a funny nickname. In this particular episode, he entered the bedroom and called her Krispy Kreme.


Actress Patricia Heaton was pregnant at the time of filming for this episode, so she did not appear in many of the shots. And when she did, she either wore big, baggy clothing or held an object, such as a laundry basket, in front of her to cover up the pregnant belly.

Amy was mentioned in the episode but did not make an appearance.
