Episode Summary

EDIT
When Ray realizes that his kids would rather spend time with their Uncle Robert than with him, he decides to do something about the situation. When Robert makes the observation that, as a parent, Ray finds it boring to be around his kids, Debra couldn't agree more. She then suggests that Ray follow Robert's example and to try to have more fun with his children.moreless

  • "Say Uncle" is a touching look at the relationship between Robert and his niece and nephews, tested by Ray's jealousy, Debra's loving concern for the children and for Ray, and Robert's ability to often get under Ray's skin!moreless

    This episode of this classic family comedy series contains all the elements that make this series one of the five or six best in television history. It contains the usual standoffs that most good episodes of the show do: between Ray and Debra, between Ray and Robert, and between Ray/Debra and Ray's parents. This specific episode, premiering during the period when "Everbody Loves Raymond" ("ELR") really started to hit is stride, contains particularly poignant dynamics between Ray and Robert, and between Ray and Debra. Best of all, the episode centers around one of the two best and most enchanting themes of the show: Ray and Debra's relationship with their children (the other great theme being Ray and Debra's love life). Add in some of the best one-liners by Frank (in my opinion, the funniest character of the series) in the whole run of the series, and one of Brad Ganett's best physical comedy performances, and you have one especially brilliant episode!moreless

    • Frank: Hey, this stuff is pretty good.
      Ray: Yeah, uh, dad, those are goat pellets.

    • Frank: So, are you going to finish my pancakes or what? I'm starving.

      Frank: You better hope I can't, otherwise you're on a bus to the home.

    • Frank: Marie, what the hell? One second you were making me pancakes, the next second you're gone. Which would be great if there were pancakes.
