God I love this show and I think it's really finding it's groove. So much good stuff this episode. I loved how the three oldest boys appeared at the arch to the dining room with looks of awe, confusion, and amusement when Duncan's parents were apologizing to him. Frank's head whipping back and forth at the dinner table between whoever was talking, and then nodding furiously in agreement with Mike. Joey, Timmy, and William blowing things up (even in their church clothes before breakfast) and eventually "succeeding" with Frank's rocket - that in particular reminded me of my two sons who tried to blow all kinds of things up as kids. Joey busting baby Andy down to 12 on the love list for draining all of them and bringing nothing to the table. Lawrence continually trying to be the voice of sanity. Joey putting his D+ to good use on Peg's beautiful table she bought at that store on the same block as the Ethan Allen. Pat giving William his jell-o because he may have power over life and death. Timmy feeling at home at the hospital because all they served was heated up frozen food. Eddie's disbelief that Mike might have friends and relief in realizing it's just a "work" friend. Joey admitting he broke the table trying to help William and WILL NEVER MAKE THAT MISTAKE AGAIN! But luckily he has a table guy who works off the books (of course he does).
Ok yeah, that's just about the whole show, but I really did love this episode. and I just realized I have finally learned everyone's names, so go me! I also recommended the show to a friend of mine who had never heard of it and she loved it. I don't know what the ratings are like, but I'm trying to do my part to spread the word.
