  • Ray and Debra butt heads over whether or not to accommodate the expensive dress code for a birthday party Ally is attending--which would probably be less of an issue if the party wasn't being hosted by none other than Ray's archnemesis "Peggy!"

    Out of all the "Raymond" episodes created over the past 9 years, this is probably Madylin Sweeten's biggest role. Most of the episodes didn't focus on the kids at all, but even the few that did only required them to be in a few scenes. Sweeten does a fairly good job here--not as well as she did in some other episodes, but it was still an enjoyable episode.

    Any storyline involving the hilarious friction between Ray and Peggy is a real keeper, and their arguing over a $250 party dress here is genuinely funny. It also provides a very sweet scene between Ray and Ally.

    The ending of this episode was kind of silly and annoying, but all in all it was a classic "Raymond" episode, delivering all the laughs you've come to expect.
