Desperate to keep her smoking habit from Sean and the kids, Claudia tries her best to smoke without being found out, but she's busted by Lily, who agrees to keep her secret -- for a price.

    10
    A perfect episode of Grounded fore Life, maybe because it was absolutely hysterical or maybe it's the fact that this episode wildly entertaining and eventful. This instantly became one of my favorite Grounded for Life episodes within the first 10 minutes. Claudia acting like a crazy person was hilarious. I loved how everything tied in at the very end.



    "Mom a nut job" Henry utters these words, withing seconds, Claudia is shown falling over the fence to Brad's house. That was the funniest, but it only gets funnier when Claudia ends up in an interesting position with Brad. Lilly & Dean's relationship was never my favorite but it also stood out here.



    Overall, just classic Grounded for Life. You've got all the elements for a perfect episode. Don't miss this one.moreless
