  • Excellent episode before the series finale

    This is definitely one of the best "George Lopez" episodes that I have ever seen. It was very funny but it also has a good message and what happened in this episode about people losing their jobs and going to college to get a better job was very true. It is a scary world and this episode just proved that to me. I know it's scary in real world but it is true so this episode gave a good message. I thought that this was a good episode and it was one episode left before the series finale. Max destroys George and Angie's computer so George tells Max that he is going to work at the factory with George to pay off the money for the computer. Max works at the factory with George and he tells George that he wants to work at the factory for the rest of his life with George and doesn't want to go to college. Angie is not very happy hearing Max saying that he wants to work at the factory with George but she wants him to get a good education and a better job. Vic's appearance in this episode was definitely hilarious. A lot of parts in this episode made me laugh hard as well. Mel's final appearance in this episode was very good and memorable. This episode marks Mel Power's final appearance and the series finale marks Jack Power's final appearance. George having a vision about Max in the future and how he is losing his job was very good and Ernie in the future was so funny. Overall, a very funny episode with a very good message that is super true about the real world. 10/10moreless
  • good buildup to the finale

    george tries to teach max how important education is by making him work at the factory. this backfires when max reveals that he wants to drop out of school, not go to college, and that he wants to work at the factory. can george change his mind? Is a rumor about the factory closing true?



    A good episode with good humor and In my opinion, it does a pretty good job at giving us the tone of the final episode, especially the last few minutes. My overall grade for this is an A+, very nice and very well done, methinksmoreless
  • Loved it.

    We got to see Max grow up in this episode, and it was still filled with the George Lopez and George Lopez family comedy that we have come to know and love. I have to say George's 'vision' was my favorite part of the episode, Ernie and Max were doing great. Geena was hilarious, as always, Bennie has done better. This epsisode kept me watching, no matter how bad the quality was on You Tube. lol. So, watch this episode of George Lopez, it will tough you, and tickle you. Thank you for reading my review! Yay for you people! Thanks!!moreless

    This episode is the next to last episode of the awesome show, "George Lopez." It is basically kind of like a part one of a two part finale even though it was really just two episodes that just happened to be the last episodes. In this episode, Max tears apart the family computer which George says cost a thousand dollars. George makes Max work at the factory to earn a thousand dollars and admit that earning a thousand dollars is tougher than he thought. Max loves working at the factory and wants to drop out of school and work at the factory forever. Angie dislikes the idea but George and Vic think it's ok. But when George dreams about what it would be like for the factory to shut down and Max not be able to do anything else, he decides he wants Max to go to college and get a good education so if he still wants to work at the factory and it closes down, he'll have other options. Max agrees with the idea after everyone freaks out over the fake rumor the factory is moving to Mexico. These rumors turn out to be true in the end and that's where it leaves off into the finale. I loved this episode.moreless

    • Gina: (in the future, everybody's been laid off) Guess I'll have to go back to dancing. Good thing I've still got the body I had in '07.
      George: 1907 or 2007?
      Gina: Yeah.

    • (Gina is hitting on George)
      George: Gina, its called menopause, not men-o-keep-going.

    • George: Max can't drop out of school. But if he wants to work at the factory after he graduates, he can.
      Angie: NO! I have never given up on Max, and I'm not about to start now. That's why he's potty-trained, knows his "A,B,C's", and he can wear pants with zippers.
      George: He still gets caught, Angie. HE STILL GETS CAUGHT!

    • Gina: (George asks what if the factory closes like the rumors say) George, if the factory's closing I gotta know, because if I'm going to go back to dancing, I have to get my snake back from my sister!
      George: Max, if she had an education, she wouldn't be panicked about losing her job.

    • Benny: Seeing Max here reminds me of when I brought you here as a kid.
      George: The difference is I'll be taking him home for dinner.
      Benny: What's wrong with having dinner here?
      George: The celery out of your Bloody Mary isn't dinner.
      Benny: And a napkin isn't a tent and a straw isn't a snorkel. There's nothing sadder than a kid without an imagination.
      George: Oh no? How about a kid almost drowning because his snorkel doesn't reach above the water?

    • Angie: Max doesn't have to get into an Ivy League school, there are junior colleges, trade schools, he likes taking computers apart, maybe he can learn to put them back together.

    • Max: There's mice in there?!
      George: Well, we had something that ate them, then something ate the cat.

    • Ernie: That turtle died of a rare disease!
      George: Yeah, they have a cure for that now. It's called turtle food!

    • Angie: (about Max) George, he's too young to work at the factory.
      George: Angie, it's safe. There was one stabbing but that was over a women. That can happen on Wall Street. Maybe not with a sharpened screwdriver but, it can still happen!

    • Ernie: George, would you mind if I gave you some parenting advice?
      George: Let's see, you've never had children or a pet that's lived longer than two weeks so yeah, go for it!

    • Benny: What's all this junk?
      Angie: Max took it upon him self to upgrade our computer and now, it's broken.
      Benny: Oh, so what's your bad parenting move this time?

    • George: How do you suppose we pay for the credit card?
      Max: You put it on another credit card.
      Angie: I told you he listens to us!

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • When discussing which movie to go see, George wants to see a movie about a FBI agent who disguises himself as a sassy black grandma, but Angie suggests a movie where a good doctor tries to stop global warming. George wanted to see Big Momma's House 2 while Angie wanted to see An Inconvenient Truth. Both films went into theaters a year before this episode premiered.
