  • The Malones and Seavers unite to surprise Maggie and Jason on their 20th wedding anniversary.

    This is one of the three greatest episodes of Growing Pains, just behind episode 41 "The Awful Truth" and episode 105 "Ben and Mike's Excellent Adventure." From beginning to end this is high-comedy, the best part, of course, being the anniversary party. Few characters on this show have been as funny as Cousin Larry. He has to be seen to be fully appreciated. Additionally, the caterer is hysterical. "Damn it Padre, I feel good." Although the food fight at the end is a bit contrived, this is one of my favorite episodes. It features a young Matthew Perry. And this is the episode in which the relationship between Mike and Julie is finally revealed. This is a must-see episode.
