  • This was an amazing episode!

    Mary's new boyfriend shows up unexpectedly. He turns out to be a pilot who is around Eric's age. Kevin moved into the garage apartment and is waiting for the right time to ask Lucy to marry him. Kevin introduces Roxanne, his new partner, to Lucy. Lucy gets extremely jealous. Ruthie babysits a chimp named Eisenhower for their neighbor. Simon has a date with Cecilia, but she paid to go on it to make her boyfriend jealous. Robbie sees Roxanne and they recognize each other from the 7th grade. They start making out because Robbie and Joy broke up. Robbie is jealous of Kevin because Kevin seems to replace Matt and is calling Annie "mom." This was a great opener. A lot of things have changed since season 6. One noticeable one is that Matt is gone! Unfortunately, he had cancer and couldn't be on the show. Others are the addition of cast members, Kevin, Ben, and Cecilia. Lucy's hair is shorter and Mary's hair is brown again. Robbie's hair is also a little shorter. I thought this was a fantastic episode! I loved seeing how everything has changed. Also, the quality seems a little newer. I preferred the earlier look it had in seasons 1-6. Overall, this was a great episode and I give it a 10!moreless
