    This show is very good and you can just tell when the closing scene ends with the family and friends trying to fish parts of a boat underwater with "The Good Life" by OneRepublic plays in the background. We didn't get some obvious Scrubs-esque humor here, but that's probably not the worst thing. This show is really coming it's own.

    The title card for this episode was hilarious. My only complaint about the episode was even the mention of a possibility of Travis & Laurie relationship was too hard to fathom, and quite too ridiculous considering the writers have created a brotherly/sisterly bond between the two of them. The transitions between the golfing and the boat were very well done.

    A part I found myself laughing hysterically at was the 80s montage gag. I literally was thinking the same thing when the song came on, the fact that they issued it so bluntly was absolutely hysterical. Good episode, bad ratings, yet again, undeserved.moreless
  • Bobby sinks

    I didn't like the Bobby part of this story line because it seemed a little forced and random and it brought up problems that didn't seem to really exist. The end with the boat sinking seemed like a cop out and even though it showed that he had matured that he wasn't freaking out, I thought he should be freaking out because that is where he live.

    What I did love about this episode was the show finally recognizes the potential weirdness between Laurie and Travis who are fairly close in age and have a very odd friendship because of the structure of the show. I liked how the referenced it without pushing the envelope of where it could go and the whole Laurie as a sorority sister was great.moreless

    • Jules: I feel like I owe you a sorry.
      Bobby: You sank my home. (Jules starts laughing) Are you laughing?
      Jules: Mm-mm. (Laughs harder) Yes, Bobby. I sank your home!
      Bobby: (Chuckling) Sure did.
      Jules: See, this is why I know you're gonna be okay. A few years ago, you would not be laughing. This would crush you and you would spiral for months.
      Bobby: I still might.
      Jules: No. Because you're not that guy anymore. Look at yourself. You got a good job, you're a great dad. The old Bobby used to hang out with guys named "Bitchslap". Now look at your friends. They love you. I mean Ellie's not trying to grab any of your stuff, but she's supervising.
      Ellie: Jellybean, I see something over there. Use your hook.
      Bobby: Wow.
      Jules: That's huge for her. You still have all that confidence. You just hadn't let it out in a while.

    • Grayson: (Fishing Bobby's things out of the water) I got his coffeepot!
      Laurie: I got a muddy doll with no eyes. Is that his?
      Andy: Put it in the maybe pile.

    • Ellie: This is what friendship means to me. Having so much crap on someone they can't ever reveal the crap they have on you. I feel closer to you than ever.
      Grayson: You're a scary woman.
      Ellie: I try.

    • Grayson: You said you'd be here an hour ago.
      Jules: We had to go buy our fake-ratty boat fixing outfits.
      Ellie: We're sloppy, but adorable.
      Jules: That's right.

    • Kirsten: Why pretend to be in a sorority?
      Laurie: I used to do it all the time when I was 20, the parties rock and sometime I just want to wear pearls without being judged.
      Travis: We've all been there.

    • Jules: What is keeping Bobby down?
      Ellie: Maybe he's down because his retirement plan is to "die early."
      Grayson: Or that on his boat he has to keep his cholesterol medicine in a lockbox so the rats don't get it.
      Ellie: My turn again! His garbage disposal is a dog. He eats cereal out of a turtle shell. His bottle opener is a dog!

    • Grayson: So Bobby was really a stud?
      Jules: Okay, close your eyes. (They do) Imagine Bobby with the most beautiful golden hair.
      Andy: Ooh!
      Ellie: Really?
      Andy: Sshh.
      Jules: He was ripped like a Greek god. (Bobby comes in)
      Bobby: My microwave's broken and I ate a whole tub of uncooked biscuit dough and I think it's rising in my stomach.
      Jules: Eyes back closed.

    • Andy: Bobby Batman Cobb, we believe in you!
      Jules: What?
      Andy: Oh, one of our special things is we pretend his middle name is Batman and mine is Robin.
      Jules: Don't care. Look Bobby... really? Are you both sulking until I acknowledge the nicknames? Look Batman, Robin's right.

    • Laurie: Laugh! (Everyone stares at her) I saw myself laugh in the mirror last night, and it seemed kinda horsey. So now I'm gonna say it instead of do it.
      Grayson: Seems natural.

    • Jules: Do you ever wonder why I married Bobby?
      Andy: No.
      Grayson: Every day.
