  • The gloves are off as Raymond goes all out to win the annual Girl Scout Cookie Drive after he finds out that Peggy,the obnoxious Troop Leader,sold cookies to his parents & brother.moreless

    9.5
    More often than not I find Everybody Loves Raymond tends to run out of steam as the episode unfolds and while 'Cookies' is no different there are enough highlights here to keep viewers tuned in.



    The opening scene where Raymond and Ally arrive late for a Girl Scouts meeting is hysterical.Hardcore Troop Leader Peggy is gearing her charges up for the annual Cookie Drive and her presentation is reminiscent of Alec Baldwin's edgy pep talk to a team of Estate Agents in the film Glengarry Glen Ross.



    From the ABC mantra 'Always Be Closing' to Raymond's suggestion that third prize will be expulsion from the Girl Scouts,Peggy has all bases covered in this clever parody of the aforementioned scene from David Mamut's screenplay.



    From here,however,it's all downhill but there are enough positive aspects in this episode to make it worthy of repeated viewings,if only for the opening scene.moreless
  • It's Ray Barone vs. Peggy "Hitler" in this hilarious episode.

    9.5
    This episode has one of the most memorable scenes ever. Ray is struggling against his archrival Peggy for the spot in front of Marco's. Ray gets involved in a "war" against Peggy when she sells cookies to Frank, Marie, and Robert. He is also given the cruddiest spot to sell cookies so he steals/invades Peggy's spot, and ends up winning the beach chair (it breaks shortly thereafter). This episode's brilliant plot and exceptional writing made it so enjoyable to watch. I also liked the first scene where Ray makes an a** of himself in front of Peggy and the others around him. A must-see for those who love Raymond and cookies.moreless

In it, a real estate office is given leads and told to follow the maxim ABC (Always Be Closing) and that it would be a contest among the office, with third place being, "you're fired."
