Michael's and each other (Matt and Mary), things go back to normal. Simon and Lucy double date together with birthday girl Deena and her older brother who is visiting. The dates are a success.moreless

  • I really like this episode for mom.

    I really enjoyed this episode. Loved the whole Dog story. I love how Mary said "whup-ass". lol. This was def. one of the best episodes of this season. In this episode Matt's and Mary's constant fighting mirrors Srgnt. Michael's and his sisters relationship. Another thing i loved about this episdoe is how immature Mary was. Simon was so nice of taking Dina to a expensive french restaraunt. This episode reminded me a lot about my great grandpa and when mom dies i got touchded. This was def. one of my favorite episodes of the entire 11 season run. I loved how Mom was aloud to be barryed in the park.moreless
