  • Robert shouldn't judge someone who he used to be like.

    9.0
    Robert says having Peter live with them is an inconvenience and he should go back to Amy's parents and yet, Robert seems to be forgetting that he used to be just like Peter. He too, was living with his parents while in his 40's. Robert should be suggesting that Peter get a place of his own. Robert thinking it was so hard to have grown man living with them and he never stopped to think that might have been just as hard for Frank and Marie when he lived with them. When Robert overhears the conversation, he realizes that he was a little rough on Peter as he's been in the same position as Peter. I like how Robert and Peter talk to each other about the difficulties that come with living with your parents and how they may want you there but are happy when you leave. Not to mention how parents screw up with you because your the oldest but they don't make any mistakes with the second born because they practiced with you and know what NOT to do.

    Amy and Peter's parents are changing Peter's basement room and not telling him. Hank says that he's never heard of MAD magazine?! Those are on ever supermarket shelf. Hank and Pat need to get out more often. I don't think they ever leave the house except for work and church.

    Plus, when Amy, Ray, Debra, Frank and Marie discuss a 40 year old man still living with his parents is weird, it's like they don't even notice that Robert IS STANDING RIGHT THERE! But then again, nobody ever seems to. But it was outrageous that Amy didn't.moreless

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Peter: Did you know that if I had gotten home ten minutes sooner, I would have had to dug into the garbage to find my blueprints to the bat cave?
      Robert: Well, I wasn't out of the house ten minutes before my dad started putting in a Jacuzzi where my bed use to be.
      Peter: A Jacuzzi? Your parents are cool.
      Robert: Come watch them use it—not so cool.

    • Peter: I did not see this coming. Every day my mom would leave a plate of cookies and a cup of hot cocoa outside my door. Does that say "Get the hell out" to you?

    • Peter: I need Miss Puss. Where's Miss Puss? Miss puss Puss!
      Hank: She's outside
      Peter: What!? No! Miss Puss is an inside cat!
      Pat: Not anymore.

    • Amy: Robert!
      Robert: No! We're never alone anymore. I mean you and I haven't even been friendly since he got here.
      Amy: Robert!
      Robert: I'm sorry, I just wanna be your friend!

    • Amy: Then at least let me take you back to Pennsylvania.
      Robert: No, Amy, you are not going all the way to Pennsylvania tonight. You're gonna say here... and be my friend!

    • Peter: Everyone on the bus enjoyed my harmonica. They all clapped when I got off.

    • Peter: Miss Puss would never go for this!

    • Frank: (to Ray, about Peter) You put the fruitcake back in the box?

    • Debra: Maybe Peter could stay at our house tonight.
      Ray: What? No, no ... no, our house ... it's broken.

    • (Robert, Ray and Peter are carrying a couch)
      Amy: Oh, I am impressed. You guys are so manly.
      Ray: Ugghh, hurry up. I think I broke a nail!

    • Robert: (to Amy, about Peter) Yeah, I noticed his underwear hanging on the doorknob. Which reminds me, if you go out today, pick up a new doorknob.

    • Marie: Amy dear, you have to understand. A child is like a baby robin. You feed him, you nurture him, you get him strong, so when the time comes he's ready to fly away and bring you back grandrobbins. And no matter how much you want him to, sometimes there's a robin who just won't fly away.
      Frank: And before you know it, you got a 40-year-old robin who can't lift his ass out of the nest.
