In "Can't We Be Friends?," Elliott Lewis stars as a creepy guy who can't get his ex-girlfriend out of his mind...until he comes up with a way.
As the episode opens, Michael Gordon asks Dr. Meyer if Frances is dead. The doctor doesn't answer right away, he wants to hear Michael's story first. So, Michael explains about his relationship with Frances Murphy...
They started dating about six months ago. He fell in love, but Frances didn't feel the same. Then, she fell ill and had to go to the hospital for surgery. Michael moved on to someone else, but he couldn't get Frances out his mind.
So, he went over to see her. Frances was still recuperating from her illness, and wasn't too pleased to see her ex. Still she let him in. After a while, it seemed maybe there was a chance to reconcile, but then she remembered what kind of guy he really was and told him to get out.
Michael decided that the best way to stop thinking about Frances was to get rid of her entirely...
