  • The ending to the joke that is told throughout the episode ("How do you think I rang the doorbell?") belongs to this: A woman, tired of living alone, decides to put an ad in the local paper. She asks for three things: 1. A man who will treat her nicely, 2. A man who won't leave her, and 3. A man who is good in bed. Several weeks go by without a result, and the woman is resigned to life without a man who can embody those qualities. Then, the doorbell rings, and she opens it to find an armless, legless man on a wheelchair. She asks, " You do not have any arms or legs, but are you good in bed?" The man answers, "how do you think I rang the doorbell?"
