  • One of the most hilarious episodes of the entire series--a must-see!

    10
    I not only liked this episode for the lesson provided in taking diet pills (which can be dangerous if taken in large amounts, especially), but the humor with Urkel in this one definately kept me watching. When he swollowed quite a few diet pills (thinking they were vitamin C), he becomes extremely hyper. Helping Carl with some shelves, the hilarity mounts, as his actions become even more crazy than any episode you will ever see.

    The 'measure and cut the wood' song had me laughing myself to tears. This was definately one of the funniest parts of the entire episode, as well as Steve's slanted shelves.



    Being a long-time Urkel fan, this is a 10 overall. A truly funny, educational and entertaining episode.moreless
