  • Good episode.

    This episode concerns the brothers' attempt to live a normal life, although Sandy (the mother) says, in the end, that she'll just have to get used to the fact that her boys are superstars (although one would expect her to be more accustomed to that than Theresa on Wizards of Waverly Place is to her family being wizards). The puzzling thing however is why, when the brothers are spotted taking out the garbage, they don't drop it into the can before returning inside (with the exception of the attempt that culminates in a girl emerging from each can {incidentally, is the little girl who emerges a moment later Noah Cyrus?}). I also like the way Macy seems to be having a seizure after the brothers enter the thrift store. One would think she were a closer acquaintance of the brothers considering that her best friend (Stella) is their fashion designer, not to mention a lifelong friend of theirs (as seen in the Home Movies episode). The scene where the girl sends out a picture on her phone is, however, a bit far-fetched. Her phone apparently has a feature that simultaneously sends the picture to everyone else who has a phone with such capabilities, all of whom apparently are, in turn, near the thrift store. Also, in the shot where she sends the picture, she appears to be doing so tauntingly, because of the way she circles her arm about her shoulder and the way she is smiling and looking at the brothers as she presses the button. The girl is a cutie, though. Also, when I saw the scene where Tom (the father), Sandy, and Frankie enter the store, I thought Frankie would make a comment. Finally, I like the ending, where Kevin finally succeeds in taking out the garbage. Good episode, overall.moreless

      Kevin: Nope, I heard it.

    • Sandy: Since when does breakfast require a microphone?
      Kevin: Well, you know how Joe likes pizza Chicago style? Well, he took the jet last night to Chicago and found himself some pizza.
      Nick: Oh yeah, and he got in pretty late so he's sleeping in and he wanted us to record the breakfast meeting. No, really, he likes to hear the sizzling of the bacon.
