    This episode is where Jillian comes out of her coma and shocks the whole entire family. The reason as to why this is a rather pivotal episode is because it leads up to the point where you believe Jillian will not recover and then it miraculously does! Also, seeing Amy's first day as a criminal court judge is rather telling because you can see her being trampled upon by lawyers mistaking her for a novice. Overall, this is an excellent episode and is a turning point in the series.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Goof: While she is seated at the dining room table with Maxine, Amy is seen holding a wine glass with her left hand and pouring the wine bottle with her right hand. As the camera moves, she's pouring the wine into a glass on the table and has her left hand under the table on her lap.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • The allusion in the title of this episode is to motion sickness or kinetosis, that is a condition in which the fluid in the semicircular canals of the inner ear becomes agitated. This causes disagreement between the apparent visually perceived lack of movement and the inner ear's sense of actual movement. In worst cases, people become violently ill and vomit repeatedly.
