  • Episode Description
  • When Andy's relationship with Delia is threatened after he breaks his promise not to date Linda Abbott, he decides to take his daughter on a special bonding trip to regain her trust. Andy is also surprised by Ephram's emotional reaction to the relationship with Linda. Meanwhile, Andy finds himself in a tough spot when a woman patient wants to get pregnant through in-vitro fertilization with sperm from her first husband, who is now dead, but her second husband is having a real problem over the matter. The Abbott family is still in turmoil when Amy decides to live with Edna and Irv, rather than playing by her parents' rules.moreless

    • Madison: (To Ephram) Okay, tell me what's bugging you 'cause no amount of pork can distract a guy from a making out session, especially when there's no chance we get caught.

    • Ephram: Isn't there some kind of law against dumping sperm in a natural forest?

    • Delia: You're forgetting something; I don't like you.

    • Rose to Harold: The only history of bad decisions in this family is yours.

    • Ephram: You're asking me to throw a dead guy's frozen spunk into a canyon? (Andy nods yes.) Ephram: That's cool.

    Notes (3)

    • Episode Music: Jonny Lang - Red Light. Course of Nature - Caught in the Sun.

    • Stephanie Niznik (Nina Feeny) does not appear in this episode even though she's in the opening credits.

    • This episode paid tribute to actress Kellie Waymire who guest stars in this episode (her final performance) who died recently after filming this episode (and before it originally aired). She died on November 11, 2003.

    Trivia (2)

    • Apparently, this episode took place the same day as Unhappy Holidays' ending did. But when Ephram was talking to his dad about Delia's behavior, he says it was three months ago that Deilia said the bad word. However, if this episode really took place in November, rather than January, than it would have been just a few weeks since that particular incident with Delia.

    • At the Abbott family meeting in Edna and Irv's house a Catholic priest ends an opening prayer by saying Amen, pronouncing the "a" in "Amen" like the "a" in "father". This is the Protestant pronounciation of the word Amen. Catholics pronounce Amen with a long "a", like the "a" in the word "pay".

    • Delia: (To Andy) Driving Miss Daisy Crazy? Andy: You wouldn't like that. Driving Ms. Daisy Crazy is the title of a European pornographic movie.
