This is a truly great episode! I'm glad the show decided to keep going after the death of John Ritter.
1) I really liked the plot to this episode. After staying home for awhile after the death of their father, the kids finally have to go back to school. They are supported by classmates, well, at least, Rory and Bridget are. Kerry is still depressed and everyone still picks on her. I also liked the thing with Rory/Missy and Bridget and trying to be all happy and upbeat.
2) This is where the episode begins to add some humor back into the series, such as Grandpa Jim trying to fix a bunch of things around the house that aren't really required to be fixed.
3) It was interesting when Kyle told Kerry that he loved her, and he meant it, but Kerry took it the other way, thinking that he was only saying it to make her feel better.
1) Well, i said i kind of liked the whole Rory/Missy thing, only a little bit. In the series, i do wish that the two of them didn't end up together.
