  • Great episode!

    Ben and Kevin come home with Mary. Eric learns to let things go through a couple trying to control their 45 year old son's life. Ruthie almost tells Eric what Matt and Sarah are hiding. Sam and David get new beds. Patty-Mary, Ben and Kevin's sister, advises that they go home because their mom is dating. This was a great episode! I really like both Kevin and Ben for Lucy and Mary. Eric was crazy about finding out about Matt. I kind of wished they had told him because it would make everything better. I thought this was a great episode. A 10 out of 10!moreless
  • I was so excited when Mary brought Kevin home with her as a suprise for Lucy. This is definently one of my favorite episodes.

    I love this episode mostly because Kevin and Lucy grow closer through his visit. I l9ove their love realationship. They are so cute together this is a great episode and I adored it. It was an amazing way to show how close Kevin and Lucy were and will be in the future. It was truely amazing.

  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (22)

    • Annie: Mary! Ben! And you must be Kevin! Welcome!
      Eric: Welcome?
      Mary: I'm an airline attendant. I get buddy passes and I brought them home with me for a surprise. Is it ok?
      Annie: It's more than okay! Kevin!
      Lucy: Isn't he great?
      Annie: Oh, he is!

    • Annie: Oh, it's so great to have Mary home and I can't wait to hear about the new job and I love having company.

    • Eric: (to Happy) Oh, thanks for chasing out the bad guys.

    • Eric: (to Simon) In case you were wondering what your sister was screaming about at 2:30 in the morning, Mary's home. And she brought Ben and Ben's brother. Now your mother's making them sandwiches, even though they're grown men who can make their own sandwichs. Heh. Yeah.

    • Annie: Could you just let me sleep?
      Eric: Have a nice day.

    • Annie: (about Mary with Ben and Lucy with Kevin) If the four of them end up married I think I'll be the happiest mother on earth.

    • Eric: Let's say our...hormonialy abundant couple is not engaging in premarital sex...
      Annie: Do you have to make it sound like some science experiment gone awry? Can't you be a little less technical?
      Eric: I think Matt and Sarah are married.
      Annie: Ah, what, again with that theory.
      Eric: I think they're married and I think that's why Matt feels so free about staying over at Sarah's.
      Annie: You know what I think? I think you're a little nutty. That's what I think. Why do you have to prove that Matt is married when he says he isn't?
      Eric: Because if he's married it would restore my faith in my son, and the world...and...
      Annie: ... And what?
      Eric: And we wouldn't have to have a wedding that's not in my church.
      Annie: Eric, I think we have to let Matt and Sarah live their lives the way they see fit. If they want a wedding and if they want Sarah's dad to marry them, then that's what is. We have to deal with what is, not what could or should or would be or what we want it to be. And I'm quoting from about a hundred of your lectures.
      Eric: Sermons.
      Annie: Sermons.

    • Ruthie: How do you know I'm trying to protect someone?
      Robbie: That's the only time you lie. If it gets to be too much you know your secret's safe with me. So what are you angry with your sisters about?
      Ruthie: Who says I was angry?
      Robbie:That stuff didn't just slip out about Mary's arrest and Jimmy Moon and the marijuana.
      Ruthie: Okay, maybe I let it slip. Mary didn't tell me she was taking that job and Lucy didn't wake me up when Mary and Ben and Kevin came in last night.
      Robbie: Look, Ruthie you're grown up enough to realize that Mary has her life and Lucy has her life, and you have your life. They can't always include you, and you can't always include them.
      Ruthie: But I include them. I include them in everything. What?
      Robbie: Did you share your secret with them?
      Ruthie: No.
      Robbie: Everyone in a family has a life outside that family, too. That doesn't mean you're not loved, Snooky.

    • Mary: I don't think I told you this, but I'm sorry I didn't consult you about your new job.
      Eric: Ah, that's okay. I'm happy that you have a new job. How's it going?
      Mary: Really? You want to know?
      Eric: Sure, we've been trying to call you all week.
      Mary: I assumed it was to tell me to come home.
      Eric: It was. But we're getting used to the idea. Did you take the job to be near Ben?
      Mary: No, I really didn't. It just happens to be the many benefits.

    • Robbie: What's up Snook?
      Ruthie: I think Dad's taking Mom's hormone pills.
      Robbie: Something definately happened.

    • Eric: (After Sam and David have new beds) Well, I guess it's official, they're not babies anymore.
      Annie: It's a good thing. They're suppose to grow.
      Sam: See, this is good.
      David: Good bed.
      Eric: Yes, it is.

    • Eric: Good night...I was just trying to remember...I have to tell you that despite all the shock and surprise of this sudden romance, that I'm genuinely delighted to see my son in love with his future bride as I am with my wife.
      Sarah: Thanks.
      Eric: I hope you two will be every bit as happy as Annie and I are.
      Matt: Yeah, mock me...
      Eric: I love you son.
      Matt: I love you too.

    • Lucy: Home!? You're in Glenoak?!
      Mary: I'm not just in Glenoak, I'm here! (Lucy is shocked)

    • Lucy: (phone rings) Hello?
      Mary: Guess who I'm here with?
      Lucy: Mary?
      Mary: What?
      Lucy: Is that you?
      Mary: Of course it's me! Guess who I'm here with?
      Lucy: The Colonel and Grandma Ruth?
      Mary: Why would I bring the Colonel and Grandma Ruth home with me?
      Lucy: With...(Ben walks in with Mary) Oh...(Kevin walks in) Ah!

    • Eric: (to sleeping Robbie) Just thought you would like to know what all the screaming was about. No one was breaking into the house. Just into our lives.

    • Ruthie: Then the safest thing for you to do is to take me with you.

    • Simon: (Phone rings) Hello?
      Patty-Mary: Is Kevin there?
      Simon: Maybe, whom should I say is calling?
      Patty-Mary: Just tell him he has a phone call kid.
      Simon: I don't think so.
      Patty-Mary: Tell them it's Patty-Mary.
      Simon: I need more information Patty-Mary.

    • Eric: Lucy, Mary and...boyfriends.

    • Kevin: Hi sweetie! What? It's me, Kevin.

    • Annie: Eric! Is everything ok!?

    • Mary: Your brother's in love with my sister.
      Ben: It's too soon for them to be in love.
      Mary: What about us? (They kiss)

    • Lucy: I know who you are, I just didn't know I was sweetie!
