  • So funny!

    Well, I think we all know that at age two, most children are not very easy to handle. They start having tantrums and start getting into things. Baby Sinclair turns two and turns into a little devil. It's so funny though. His screaming and begging for everything in the world is so silly, and it had my sister and I laughing on the floor. This would scare most kids at age five, but my sister laughed through the whole episode. So did I. Well, even through all our laughter, we loved the ending when Baby turned back into the sweet little angel he used to be. That made us both smile. I adore Baby so much!moreless

    • Charlene: (the Baby's crying) It's four in the morning, doesn't he ever shut up?
      Baby: I want a pony! No, I want to go to the beach!
      Fran: A whole year, a whole year of this.
      Earl: I can't take it, I'm not going to make it to his third birthday.
      Baby: Give me a cookie! Wanna play horsey! I want a drink of WAAATER!
      Earl: He's not going to make it to his third birthday.

    • Fran: I keep getting angry when I know what the baby needs is love and compassion.
      Doctor: And where is he now?
      Fran: Inside this box...well we had to, he chewed through the straps on his car seat.
      Doctor: Very resourceful...may I see the child?
      Fran and Earl: Uh.......sure, you're the doctor, I guess....
      (Fran and Earl open the box)
      Doctor: Well hello little fellow, look at me and say 'ah'.
      Baby: Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
      Doctor: Close the box! Close the box! Close the box!
      (Fran and Earl close the box)
      Doctor: Terrible Twos?
      Fran: We think so.
      Doctor: Oh, I've seen this a hundred times before. A child of two is looking for his parents to give him some concrete boundaries. So I suggest you wall him up inside a cave for a year. Take this to the hardware store, they'll give you some cement and a trowel.
      Earl: Doc, can I get a refill for this if he claws his way out?

    • Fran: It's not right, Earl. Bribing a child to behave.
      Earl: And if it works?
      Fran: It's a shortsighted, stopgap, quick-fix solution.
      Earl: You don't have to sell me on it.

    • Fran: I keep getting angry when I know what the baby needs is love and compassion.
      Doctor: And where is he now?
      Fran: Inside this box...well we had to, he chewed through the safety strap on his car seat.
      Doctor: Very resourceful...may I see the child?
      Fran and Earl: Uh.......sure, you're the doctor, I guess....
      (Fran and Earl open the box)
      Doctor: Well hello little fellow, I want you to open your mouth and say ah.
      Baby: Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
      Doctor: Close the box! Close the box!
      (Fran and Earl close the box)
      Doctor: Terrible Twos?
      Fran: We think so.
      Doctor: I've seen this a hundred times...so I suggest walling him up inside a cave for a year. Take this estimate, they'll give you a cement mixer and a trowel.
      Earl: Doc, can I get a refund if he claws his way out?

    • Ethyl: This is a dark, terrible day...
      Earl: And we were going to ask you to jump out of the cake.

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Green Eggs and Ham:

      When the Babysitter reads a book to the demonic Baby called Blue Eggs and Toast, this title is a spoof on this very popular and recognizable book written in 1960 by Dr. Seuss.

    • The Exorcist:

      The spinning head, the babysitter jumping out of the window, the baby's overall evil transformation; ring any bells? This episode spoofs the 70's horror movie, The Exorcist.

      The classic line from that movie, "the power of Christ compels you," also shows ties to a line in this episode: "the power of rice compels you."
