  • Frank driving a car.

    8.5
    A very real episode that deals with the safety of driving a car. A lot of Frank lines were so crazy that it cracked me up. I can understand why Ray and Debra would be nervous about having Frank drive the kids around. I would. Overall, a very good episode.
  • I love this show!

    I absolutely love this show.. but this episode was much more then hillarious! Frank's lines are on my taste of humour, I always laugh when he is on a scene, but this time, his role was completely off the edge! I was laughing my a** off! I recomend everybody to watch at least one episode of the show, precisley when Frank has his moments, and this episode is pone of them! It was more than the usual Ray sarcastic and light humour, it was Franks time with the cinical but funny jokes and sincere ones. This episode is on my first favorites from Everybody Loves Raymond.moreless

    • Ray: You almost hit a car!
      Frank: It was in my blind spot!
      Ray: Twenty cars in a funeral procession? That's not the blind spot, dad, that's west!

    • Marie: Why are you so late?
      Frank: Traffic.
      Ray: It wasn't traffic, dad, it was a funeral!
      Frank: One less idiot in the world.

    • Marie: But I thought we're making this to give you a day off (whispers to Frank) Not that I ever got a day off.
      Frank: You can take off anytime!

    • Ray: I don't think I can tell him he can't drive his own grandchildren.
      Debra: Why not?! He's too agressive.
      Ray: That's why... I can't... tell him!

    • Ray: So, if dad doesn't pay that ticket, does he have to go to court? Cause I will take the day off for that!
      Robert: Nah... I think I'll just give him a warning.
      Ray: Oh... you wussy wuss wuss!

    • Robert: I have to give you a ticket!
      Frank: Why?
      Robert: You hit a patrol car!
      Frank: I don't care! I'm your father. Even if I killed that guy, you have to look the other way! Isn't that right, Ray?
      Ray: Dad, whatever you do... I wanna look the other way.

    • Debra: You've been driving without a valid license?
      Frank: I didn't want to wait in those long lines. (Looks at his old license) Besides, I like the picture in this one. Twenty pounds thinner and more hair.

    • Ray: Think of all the bad stuff Dad has done to us. Remember "Guess that smell"? The killing of the tooth fairy? Liver week?
      Robert: Liver week was my fault. It would have been one day if I just could have swallowed it.

    • Marie: Frank, I'm not driving with you anymore until you get that renewed.
      Frank: That's incentive? Why can't my marriage license expire?

    • Robert: I'm writing the ticket!
      Frank: Fine! That's Barone, B-A-R-O-N-E, as in the man from whose loins you sprung!
