  • I laughed until I cried!

    This episode is so typical of the Taylor family. Tim is trying to work on his hot rod while his wife is trying to set up a girlfriend with a new man. The gathering of friends both male and female contains both ends of the spectrum, an older couple who bicker all the time, and a young couple expecting their first child. The play between the couples is a riot to watch. If you can\\\'t find something to laugh about in this episode, I feel sorry for you. As I said before, I laughed so hard I had to wipe tears way so I could watch some more!moreless
