  • Episode Description
  • The Barones attend an open house Michael and Geoffrey's school, during which the kids all read stories that they've written themselves. Most of the students tell tall tales that are obviously fictional, but Michael's story, "The Angry Family", feels all too factual to the family.

  • Quotes (8)

    • Debra: The stories were supposed to be a surprise for the parents. Ray: I think a surprise is like, you get to the school and there's an open bar. This was more like an ambush.

    • Robert: I wasn't even mentioned in that book. Ray: You're insulted that you weren't insulted? Robert: I'm insulted that you've brainwashed your children into thinking that the only thing I'm good at is to hold up a piƱata.

    • Robert: I'm gonna write my own book. Ray: (Kicking Robert out of the house) Get out. Robert: That's the title.

    • Debra: I'm pretty sure that most of the leading characters in that story were from the Barone side. Ray: Yeah, okay. But the loud part I'm thinking is probably you. Debra: So you're blaming me? You are completely free and clear? Ray: I'm sorry, but I am not the yeller. Debra: YOU ARE THE REASON FOR THE YELLER!

    • Marie: I've never gotten looks like that in my life! Frank: You oughta look at me more.

    Notes (5)

    • This episode was included on the Emmy Award 'For Your Consideration' DVD for this season. It came as both a DVD and VHS.

    • When Ray is standing against the wall in the classroom, it is his real wife standing to his right.

    • This season premiere, like many other shows, was originally scheduled to air September 17 but CBS pushed it back one week due to the coverage of the September 11 attacks.

    • Starting this season, the credits are layered over the first scene of the episode.

    • The 6th season premiere aired the same day that the show went into syndication.

    Trivia (3)

    • When Ray and Debra go in for the conference with the twins' teacher, you can totally tell that it's the same room used two years ago, in Season 4's "Left Back." For that matter, it seems that the same sets were used for all the kids' classroom scenes throughout the series. For instance, it was Ally's fifth grade classroom in Season 7's "Homework," and her seventh grade room in Season 9's "Ally's F."

    • After the family returns home after the open house, the kids are seen running into the house first through the kitchen before the adults enter. If you watch closely, you will see one of the twins trip and fall as he is running into the living room.

    • The timing of this episode is way off. In season 4 episode "Left Back," Ray and Debra decide to leave Michael and Geoffrey in pre-school one more year. This would mean that they were in preschool again in season 5 and in kindergarten during season 6. However, it's a first grade open house.
