Episode Guide

Frank injuries his leg and has to rest it up meaning that he is unable to go on the Caribbean cruise that Ray has bought them. Ray suggests she goes with one of her friends but she says she just won’t go. Marie gets Ray to say he will go with her.

Marie and Ray arrive onboard the ship and Ray points out their cabin is small. Ray wants to leave but Marie tells him they are going to spend the whole weekend together and have a great time. She seems really excited about the trip. The ‘social director’ Ted comes in and gives them a list of all the activities they are running.

Ted thinks Marie is Ray’s ‘lady.’ Robert comes back with lunch to find Frank walking around with a fine leg. Frank says it is a miracle that his leg was healed. Robert exposes him but Frank says Marie would be happier without him and he doesn’t have to look after him. They have a laugh that Ray is stuck on the cruise.

Frank does a victor dance and damages his leg. Marie finds Ray is the restaurant stuffing himself with food. Marie tries to get Ray involved in some activities but he isn’t interested. Mary Beth comes up and Marie tells Ray they met in jazasize. Ted comes and takes a photo. Many other people turn up socialising with Marie, she seems to have lied individually to all of the different people and groups.

Ray continues to eat as Marie has the time of her life. Robert helps Frank around. As time passes Ray and Robert each get more and more stressed out as Frank and Marie enjoy themselves. Frank rings his little bell and tells Robert he wants to get out of the bath. Robert throws the bell in the bin and decides to cook frank but turning up the bath.

That night Marie arrives back in the cabin to find Ray still up. Ray questions Marie as if she is a kid coming in late and he is the parent. Marie tells him she is having fun. Marie plans to leave but Ray wants to spend some time with her. Ray eventually agrees to go to the disco with Marie.

Back at home, Robert ignores Franks requests. Marie arrives back and he tells her that she missed him. Ray comes in and gives Robert an origami bird. Robert points out Ray has gained a few pounds on the trip.

Analysis

I think what this episode was showing was how much Marie and Frank were like kids, while Ray and Robert took on the role of parents.
