603. Little Carla, Happy at Last: Part 1

Aired October 15, 1987

After learning about Carla's pregnancy a few weeks earlier, Eddie finally proposes to her.

Quote from Sam

Woody: So, Sam, what are you concocting there?
Sam: Well, you know how superstitious Carla and Eddie are. I thought I'd mix them up a batch of my good-luck wedding punch. It never fails.
Woody: Isn't that the same stuff you made when you were getting married to Miss Chambers?
Sam: Woody, you want to flush this down the toilet?

Quote from Norm

Sam: Are you gonna take her on a honeymoon?
Carla: Hey, got any suggestions?
Norm: Yeah. New Orleans. I found a great little honeymoon spot just kind of tucked away off Bourbon Street. Great food, very romantic, steamy atmosphere, you know. Yeah, I had the time of my life, and then Vera tracked me down.

Quote from Rebecca

Rebecca: Carla, here's your final paycheck.
Carla: Thank-
Rebecca: I might say that you have been a unique employee, and it's going to be very difficult to fill your uniform.
Carla: Thanks.
Rebecca: You don't happen to know any other short, pregnant cocktail waitresses, do you?

Quote from Carla

Sam: Boy, you know, I'm gonna miss you around here.
Carla: Oh, Sammy, I'll drop by once in a while to watch all you 9-to-5'ers spill drinks on your butler suits.
Frasier: So, when's the big day, Carla?
Carla: Well, I'd like to do it as soon as possible before my little hunk of back bacon here changes his mind.
Eddie LeBec: Ah, no way, I'm not one of those flakes you used to go out with. Oh, but listen, we have to get married on a day with a two in it 'cause two's my lucky number.
Carla: Rats. Mine's three.
Eddie LeBec: Oh, no sweat. Lucky two, lucky three... We can get married on the 23rd or the 32nd.
Carla: That's right, honey.
Eddie LeBec: Oh, right, right. No, um... As long as it's not on a Wednesday.
Carla: Ooh, yeah, bad juju.
Eddie LeBec: Yeah.
Sam: This is going to be an interesting wedding. The two most superstitious people in the world.
Carla: Hey, hey, don't say that, it's bad luck.

Quote from Sam

Sam: [on the phone] Well, that cute little dimple? Well, I think I still got it. It's kind of hard for me to see back there. [laughs] [Rebecca enters her office] Um, Renee, I'm going to have to get back to you. Yeah, bye-bye. [Sam switches line] Uh, Linda, sweetheart, uh, can we continue this over lunch? Well, um, your place. Don't cook. [laughs and hangs up]
Rebecca: Let me guess. Personal call?
Sam: Very. [winks]
Rebecca: Malone, I find winking really smarmy.
Sam: Yeah, but beneath this smarm is a lot of charm, and I think you know that.
Rebecca: I know this: I want you out of my office now.
Sam: All right, all right. I'm sorry. I know I'm not supposed to get personal calls here, but what the hey, you know; super-strength Sammy has been off the shelves now for over a year, there's a lot of pent-up demand out there. What can I say?
Rebecca: Say, "l'd better get back to work. I don't want to get fired."
Sam: You're cute when you're humorless. Did you know that?
Rebecca: [answers phone] Cheers. No, Simone, I'm sorry.
Sam: [whispers] Simone? Wait, wait, wait, wait.
Rebecca: Sam's working. Try him later at home. Well, then, perhaps on your next visit to the States.
Sam: Simone? Man, you just cost me a roll in the hay.
Rebecca: I owe you one.
Sam: You're on.
Rebecca: I didn't mean that. Wait a minute. I think we need to get something...

Quote from Norm

Norm: Geez listen to this. "Scientists discover wild parrot who claims to be Elvis."
Cliff: So?
Norm: "So?" I mean, this one wins the "Too stupid for even you, Cliff" award.
Frasier: Now, really, must you two wallow in this sensationalistic tripe? It pains me no end to see America's wits dulled and their morals abrogated by this opiate of the asses.
Norm: [scoffs] Well, let's check this out, Cliffie. "l was Sigmund Freud's love child."
Frasier: No! I've heard rumors that he betrayed Martha with his sister-in-law, but I never dreamed there were progeny. [takes the paper] You rapscallions.

Quote from Carla

Eddie LeBec: Well, if I get any time off from training camp, I thought maybe Carla might like to see Waikiki.
Carla: Waikiki, Honolulu, Hawaii?
Eddie LeBec: Sure, we'll hit them all.
Carla: Yeah, right! I only hope I can get some time off from the Howitzer. [off Rebecca's look] Sorry. Miss Howitzer.
Eddie LeBec: Time off? Well, you'll be having all the time in the world. You think I'd be having a wife of mine work in a crummy bar like this? [off Rebecca's look] No offense, Miss Howitzer.
Rebecca: It's Miss Howe.
Sam: Oh, take it easy. They're just complimenting your big guns.
Carla: Wait a minute. Y- You're telling me that I don't have to work anymore? You mean, I can just sit around the house all day, eating peanut butter out of a jar, and watching my toenails grow?
Cliff: She's, uh, quite a catch, Ed.

Quote from Carla

Sam: Hey. Picked a date yet?
Carla: Yep. Eddie wants to do it a week from Saturday, anytime before 4:00 p.m., which is okay with my psychic, as long as our auras remain in the blue spectrum, and there's no solar eclipse.
Sam: It's really tough planning a wedding, isn't it?
Carla: Ooh, tell me about it.

Quote from Norm

Norm: Boys, we're all set up with my buddy Bruce. He can get us the same silverware Carla picked out from the Filene's catalog for over two-thirds off.
Cliff: Oh, yeah. So what's the bite-ski?
Norm: 20 bucks apiece. I'll catch you guys later.
Frasier: Say, Norm, there isn't any chance that this stuff is stolen merchandise, is there?
Norm: No, of course not. Listen, if anyone asks, we never heard of Bruce, we can't find the receipt, and if you run into me up on the street, call me Larry.
Frasier: My mind's at ease.

Quote from Carla

Sam: So how's the bride on her big day?
Carla: Couldn't be better, Sammy. All celestial omens are favorable. Seems that Eddie and I picked the one day this century when all the planets and constellations are in perfect alignment. So either we get married by 4:00 today, or we wait until the year 2042.
Sam: I don't know, call me old-fashioned, but I still think you ought to get married before your baby does. [Carla chuckles] How'd you manage to swing a church wedding? You know, being divorced and all.
Carla: Don't you remember? I had my marriage to Nick annulled years ago.
Sam: Oh, right, right, right, right. Took forever.
Carla: Mm-hmm. But things got speeded up when Nick tried to sell the Bishop his watch.

Quote from Carla

Eddie LeBec: What am I doing? Carla... Look, I don't want to give up the best thing that ever happened to me.
Carla: Oh, come off it, Eddie. You're just as superstitious as I am.
Eddie LeBec: Well, not anymore. And I'm going to prove to you there's nothing to all that mumbo jumbo. Woody, hand me a mirror.
Woody: Huh?
Eddie LeBec: You know, the one Sam's always looking at himself in.
Carla: What are you going to do?
Eddie LeBec: I'm going to break it.
Carla: The bad luck is starting already. He's lost his mind. [gasps as Eddie breaks the mirror]
Sam: Hey, that's my mirror.
Eddie LeBec: You see? Nothing. The ground didn't open up and swallow me.
Carla: That's because they want you out in the open where lightning can get you.
Carla: Don't do that! Oh!
Eddie LeBec: Which shoulder do you throw salt over to avoid bad luck?
Carla: The left, the left. [Eddie continues swiping the salt off the bar]
Carla: No! No, no! Forgive him, demons of Hell. He's a hockey player.

Quote from Carla

Carla: I get the feeling she wasn't nuts about me. What'd she say?
Frasier: What makes you think I'd know?
Carla: 'Cause all you pompous windbags speak French.
Frasier: She said she'll never allow this marriage. Especially to a pregnant hussy who's only trying to trap her son. Then she said she'd rather be dragged around town by her tongue... Or else she called you a small grapefruit.

Quote from Carla

Woody: [whistling]
Carla: What are you whistling about, huh? You haven't got a dime to your name. You're working for a woman who's a meat grinder, and you look like a baboon in that uniform.
Woody: Boy, life really stinks. [whistling continues]

Quote from Carla

Sam: You okay?
Carla: I feel like puke.
Sam: Well, you're wearing the right uniform. Want to talk about it?
Carla: No, what's there to say about a no-good, ice-eating little geek like Eddie LeBec. He's known since a week ago that I got his bun in my oven, and what the hell has he done about it? Jack Diddley.
Sam: Don't look now, but your ice-eating geek just walked in.
Carla: Don't you just love him?

Quote from Carla

Eddie LeBec: Hi, Carla.
Carla: Hi, Eddie.
Eddie LeBec: You, uh, busy?
Carla: Just a minute. [to her customers] Uh, look, would you just write down what you want, and hand it to Howdy Doody over there? [Woody waves]

Quote from Carla

Carla: So, what's new?
Eddie LeBec: Well, l, uh, I've had a lot on my mind lately.
Carla: Yeah?
Eddie LeBec: You know, training camp's really been rough and a lot of competition at goalie, and really having to work my tail off to keep up, eh?
Carla: Sounds rough.
Eddie LeBec: Yeah. Say, you know, uh, since I'm already here, there's something I've been wanting to ask you.
Carla: Yeah?
Eddie LeBec: It's a question.
Carla: I like questions.
Eddie LeBec: Okay, but, see, this is the kind of question a guy really doesn't want to ask if he thinks he might get "no" for answer.
Carla: Well, it's kind of hard for a girl to give an answer until she knows what the question is.
Eddie LeBec: Okay, but, you see, it would be a lot easier for a guy if he had some sort of sign...
Carla: Ask me, you little frog!
Eddie LeBec: Okay. Carla, would you...?
Carla: Yes! Yes!

Quote from Carla

Eddie LeBec: Carla, do you mind if we, you know, we keep this quiet? You know me, I don't like a lot of hoopla.
Carla: Oh, yeah, sorry. Would it be okay if I just told Sam?
Eddie LeBec: I guess.
Carla: [loudly] Hey, Sammy! Me and Eddie are getting married! [applause]

Quote from Rebecca

Rebecca: What's going on?
Woody: Oh, great news, Miss Howe. Carla's marrying Eddie LeBec.
Rebecca: Oh, that cute little guy with the dents in his nose.

Quote from Carla

Eddie LeBec: I want to be making a toast to my beautiful bride-to-be. Listen, you know, I don't make my living using words, so this is gonna be kind of hard for me, okay, but here it goes. Uh, Carla... Well, you know.
All: Well, you know.
Eddie LeBec: Yeah. I love you, sweetie.

Quote from Sam

Sam: Listen, whatever you do, don't make any plans afterwards 'cause we're going to throw you the biggest wedding reception in history right here...
Eddie LeBec: Oh, great! [applause]
Rebecca: [clears throat]
Sam: I'm sorry, I'm sorry. Force of habit. Not my place to do that. I'm sorry. Ms. Howe's going to throw you the biggest wedding reception... [cheering]
Rebecca: I need to talk to you right now.
Sam: Uh, wait before you say anything, let me just, uh I had an idea. Why don't you invite your boss, what's-his-name, Evan Drake. You know, he's a sports fan, so I hear. Maybe he'd enjoy meeting Eddie LeBec there. You know, you could throw him a big bash, impress the pants off him. What were you going to say?
Rebecca: I was going to tell you to smile more. [Sam smiles] I didn't say smugly. Excuse me, I have a phone call to make.
