  • Weird episode.

    I thought this was an okay episode, but also weird. I don't know why I thought that it was weird, it was just out of character. The comedy was okay, the plot was silly, and the storylines were just okay. Eddie fooled his teacher into thinking he had home problems. That was a lie, but his teacher was really buying the story. In other news, Harriet quit doing all the work around the house and the place looked really trashy. Overall, this was just an okay episode with some funny bits and some funny moments here and there. I was entertained. Thank you.moreless

    • Carl: Edward, when I tell people about you, I say you're a straight A student, a top athlete, got a charming personality, 'and hey, he's even better looking than Denzel Washington'. You see when I lie, I lie up.

    • Eddie: Let's face it, Dad, Miss Connors just picked a bad night to visit...(Carl glares at him) And I picked a bad time to say that.

    • Harriette: (to Carl) Either the Big Kahuna has had one too many mai tais, or he has his head up his volcano, because there is NO WAY this little wahini is going anywhere near your wiki wiki.

    • Richie: (to Miss Connors) Come on in, I'm making hot fudge sundaes for dinner.

      Judy: You meant today?

    • Carl: Harriette, please explain to Miss Connors that we are not a dysfunctional family.
      Harriette: I'll try.
