* One episode has Stella constantly jumping into the pool. At one point, Gloria is the only one there to see it, and she tries to stop Stella from jumping by trying to persuade her that she doesn't hate her. And when Stella jumps in anyway, Gloria only hesitates for two seconds before jumping in to save her. This is heartwarming for two reasons, depending on how you interpret the scene:
** Gloria, despite all of her complaining, really does love Stella, or
** Gloria really doesn't like Stella, but knows that Jay adores her, so is willing to put aside her own dislike of the dog for her husband's happiness.
