  • Just okay.

    I have to admit that I didn't care much for this episode. I thought it was okay, but it lacked the certain things that have made the show great. I thought the storylines were a bit boring and the comedy was average. My problems were that Carl was caught in a dumb plot that was out of his normal storylines. And Steve was caught in a storyline where he is trying to tutor a person Laura likes. I thought it was all too boring and out of the normal funny elements that we are used to seeing. Overall, it was just okay. Thank you.moreless

    • (Carl, Harriette and Estelle are happy that nobody claimed the diamond bracelet. The doorbell rings--Estelle answers)
      Estelle: May I help you?
      Elderly Lady: I hope so. Are you the nice people who found my diamonds?
      Estelle: laughing No. (closes door)
      Harriette: Mother Winslow! (opens door)
      Elderly Lady: The police gave me this address! Do I have the wrong house? (Harriette looks at Carl and Estelle who nod 'yes')

    • Laura: I do want a guy with something upstairs, but, uh, I also want a well-built staircase.
      Steve: Oh, well, no problem-o. I'll just begin a rigorous training schedule. Why, a few sessions on the Muscle Master and you'll be drooling over my deltoids. (strikes a pose) … Laura?
      Laura: What, Steve?
      Steve: I hurt myself. Can you carry me home?

    • Laura: Steve, I know it's a lot to ask, but I'd really appreciate it if you'd tutor Todd.
      Steve: Well, Laura, do you realize what you're asking? I'm jealous of Todd and you want me to help him. Why, you might as well drop a boulder on my foot, shove bamboo shoots under my fingernails, or scoop my eyeballs out with a melon baller.
      Laura: So, will you do it?
