    An instant classic for Grounded for Life and one of the best episodes of the entire series. So much scenes just worked perfectly here, and it we got some of the most intriguing stories of the season. Sean, Jimmy, Henry & Eddie being chased by a mob of angry people in the first scene of the episode? Talk about intriguing, it gets you in from the first scene. Claudia's bachelor party was really entertaining and we had a great tie in with the cake and Walt in the end. The best scenes were definitely between Lilly & Brad. Their chemistry was undeniable, and every time either of them cracked a smile, my heart melted considering how great they looked together in general. We also have a lot of funny one liners here from the stripper realizing who Sean was to catching the ball in general. Just a perfect episode of Grounded for Life, from start to finish. No doubt that this will become one of the most memorable as well.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Goof: When Eddie, Sean, Jimmy and Henry get to their seats, Henry says that the players look like ants. If they're sitting so high up, then how come when Sean catches the ball, you can clearly see a player trying to get it right next to him?

    • When Sean catches a home run from the opposing team at a Yankee game, there are two problems. One is that Sean had to reach over into fair territory to catch the ball, this would be called as fan interference, thus would not be a home run. Another is that after it's called a home run, the game immediately ends. Because the game takes place at Yankee Stadium, the Yankees would get another half-inning of at-bats after the visiting team's half-inning was over.

      According to season one commentary, the game does not end, we just don't see the other half of the inning, it's assumed that they didn't get any other runs.

    • Watch closely in the scene when Sean, Jimmy and Henry are coming out of the house and down the stairs, you will see Jimmy almost trip on the stairs and fall, but he recovers in time and has a sheepish look on his face.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Henry: Why are we walking so fast! I want some peanuts, and crackerjack.
      Eddie: Don't be such a cliche, Henry. That annoys me.

    • Eddie: Hey, 68! You suck!
      Jimmy: Dad, are we allowed to tell that man he sucks?
      Sean: Course, that's part of the fun of the game.
      Jimmy: Hey! You suck!
      Henry: Hey #79, you suck!
      Jimmy: This hot dog sucks!
      Henry: These seats suck!
      Jimmy: That airplane sucks!
      Sean: Okay, enough with the sucks, sit down.
      (At the house)
      Claudia: Sean, you being here tonight, that sucks.

    • (Running from an angry mob)
      Jimmy: I can't keep running, Dad!
      Sean: You've got to!
      Eddie: I just got hit with a snow cone!
      Jimmy: We're all gonna die!
      Eddie: I hate snow cones!

    • Claudia: Walt, what are you eating?
      Walt: Fruit Roll-up. They're not bad.
      Claudia: Those are edible panties.
      Walt: What? Oh dear god! I've got to go to church.

    • Sean: I didn't mean to, right Eddie?
      Eddie: Why are you talking to me, man? I - I don't know you. And my name is Maurice!

  • NOTES (2)

    • Tag scene: Claudia's "light house" shaped cake wasn't a big hit at the bachelorette party, so she gives it to Walt, so he can make up with his bar buddies.

    • On October 17, 2003, this episode replaced the scheduled airing of "Ticket to Ride" on WB. The decision to reschedule came after a 26-year-old Cubs fan angered fans by catching a foul ball at the October 14th game between the Cubs and the Marlins where the Cubs ended up losing.

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Catch Us If You Can: Title

      This is a reference to the song of the same title by The Dave Clark Five.

    • Catch Us If You Can: Plot

      This episode is very similar to the 1979 movie "The Warriors." The movie is about a New York gang that is wrongly accused of killing a highly respected gang leader and must fight their way home, because every other gang in the city wants to kill them. When they finally get home, there's another gang there that they still have to fight off.
