    This episode was probably the best episode of season three. It was so funny. This flashback episode was hilarious. It was very funny. This episode is very well written. It was extremely funny. I especially loved the part where the futon falls on Debra. It was so hilarious. I liked when he said, "Aren't you glad I'm not delivering your refrigerator?" It was hilarious. I lve this series for their funny script and their amazing storylines. This episode is obviously a series classic. It is probaby one of the best episodes of the entire series. I loved this episode. This episode is the perfect installment to the series.moreless

    This is one of the first times this show has actually done an origin story, and they've done it right. It's true that may'be a younger actor and actress could have played Ray and Debra's parts but then it wouldn't have been funny, so it was a good idea that both Ray and Patricia played their young versions of themselves and it worked.



    The whole story is a simple boy meets girl story. It great just seeing what both Ray and Debra were back then, young, inocent, and idealistic. Debra a viberant young woman and Ray who is well still Ray but the only difference is job vocation which is a Futon Delivery Man before becoming a Sports writer. When both of them interact it's Debra we see who is the one thats doing the real driving or getting the ball rolling while Ray is filled with uncertainty and doubt, so he has a little trouble getting his foot in the door. Even some of the things the characters say are ironically funny since what they thought then is contrary to what happens in the future. The romance builds up like any romance, the tense asking someone out, misunderstanding or false start, conversation, mishap, and right down to the first kiss.



    And we see in the end what the character are now, it goes to show things over the years may have changed for the characters yet both of them are still the same and the love for one another is still there may'be not vissible but still exists.moreless
