    This episode was good because it showed a soulful side to the Eric character as well as Alan. This also help the show finally find the footing it's been looking for. Both of the situations their in parallel one another, their both suffering from mid-life crisises. Alan once he receives the grocery reward after thirty years begins to feel he has not lived life to it's fullest; he has no real accomplishments to be proud of except a meaningly trophy. He realizes he has done nothing but wander most of his life, failing to find a career he can actually enjoy and do for the rest of his life. Meanwhile Eric after stopping in a "Picket Fences" like town is thinking about staying perminantly and settling down because there is nothing to go back to. This episode really hits home because it sort of acknoleges people whom have graduated, approaching or in their 20s, as well as most adults all at a turning point in their life realizing were getting older, aren't going to live forever, and must decide once and for all what they want out of life. The episode really isn't all laughs but is an examination about continual age and the importance of moving foward and living life the way you want to. And of course in the show this was a steping stone for both the Alan and Eric characters, as both eventually made dramatic changes in their lives which turned out for the best. Eric eventually went to collage as he set him self out to do. And Alan quit his job as grocer and bought an outdoors adventurer store where he's more sucessful and happy.
