  • Great memories.

    9.5
    It was really nice to see all of the former characters together for one last time. Seeing Rachel, Estelle, and Richie together was fun and brought back memories of the fun times in the early years. This episode had some great writing, funny moments, good acting, and some great entertainment. I liked the interaction with Steve and Myra. I also liked the end scenes where Rachel surprised everyone and when they are all together. It was sad in the fact that many of these characters would never be seen again. Overall, a terrific episode and one of the best of the series. Thank you.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Richie called Mother Winslow "Grandma." She's not his Grandma. She's Eddie and Laura's Grandma because she's Carl's mother. She can't be Richie's Grandma because Richie's mother is Rachel, Harriette's sister.

    • At the beginning of this episode when Steve tells Laura that he just got a job as a gift wrapper at the mall but when he said it said that he is now a "rapper" and Laura thought he was saying that he is now a singing rapper and she said that he can't even carry a tune. But how could that be when in Episode #74, "Dance to the music" that Steve wrote a rap song for Laura asking her to the Homecoming Dance for the 26th time and the song sounded like Steve carried every single tune of it pretty well.
