Episode Information[edit | edit source]

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Robert is settling in to his new apartment. But when his girlfriend Amy comes over to check out the new place, she starts rearranging furniture and hinting at marriage.

After hearing horror stories from Ray about marriage, Robert freaked out. When Amy realized he was freaking out, she broke up with Robert.

Running Gags[edit | edit source]

Ray, as always, refers to Debra with some funny nickname. This time it was "Auntie Em".

Trivia[edit | edit source]

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 in front of her to cover up the pregnant belly.

This is also the first time the viewer gets to see Robert's apartment.

The dog Shamsky also makes an appearance.

Actor and comedian Kevin James had recently gotten his own new show, "The King of Queens", on CBS in which he played a delivery man for IPS, the International Parcel Service. In this episode of Everybody Loves Raymond, he guest stars as his character, Doug Heffernan, from "The King of Queens". It was part of a number of cross-over episodes CBS was doing with their primetime sitcoms: Everybody Loves Raymond, The King of Queens, Cosby, The Nanny, and Becker.

After they had been dating for nearly 2 years, Amy breaks up with Robert because he's too afraid of commitment. (see main article: Robert and Amy's relationship)
