Sean becomes infuriated after receiving letters from the Home Owner's Association telling him to clean up his house, while Claudia is happy about the positive changes to the neighborhood. Meanwhile, Lily insists that Brad buys her an anniversary gift from a list that she's made... but he defies her wishes and gets her a sexy nighty... that he can't enjoy because he's busy picturing Sister Helen, who he ran into at the lingerie store. And Jimmy shocks the family by making an unusual lifestyle choice -- he announces that he's a vegetarian.moreless

  • Jimmy's a veg head.

    I love this episode because I have dealt with the Homeowners Association. That was so funny how he tried to fight the Homeowners Association, by not doing the things they tell them. I loved the B plot in which Jimmy's parents think he's on pot. But really he's a vegetarian, that's the strangest thing to hide. Then it turns out that Claudia sent it all along, that is so peculiar. I loved Lilly & Brad's plot in which he finds Sister Helen in the underwear store & now when he gave the underwear to Lilly, he pictures her as Sister Helen, And he can't do it with her so Lilly says "What a jerk!" Then Sean rats out another neighbor. And it's hilarious when Lilly thinks of Uncle Eddie instead of Brad. I also love the line, "Lets throw away this garbage & fire away some cow flesh." I loved this episode.moreless
