    Amy is naked again! Seems like she is naked every couple of episodes. It is always tastefully done, though.



    The scenes with Peter and Gillian are funny, so were the episodes between Donna and Vincent. Peter's reaction to Evie's baby was classic. "We come from the land of balony and white bread!"



    Amy and Michael...what a hoot! They walked down memory lane and then - BANG. It was touching...and it really does happen!



    The scenes with Maxine were disturbing. The fear of losing one's memeory/ mind is a fear many have. It was nice to know that Maxine's problem was temporary and due to her head injury.



    It was a good episode.moreless
  • Amy and Michael's divorce has still not gone through. When Michael tells Amy that their divorce is official, he invites her out for drinks. After a wonderful evening they end up in bed together.moreless

    This episode allows us to see that Amy and Michael are two mature adults. Their marriage didn\'t work, but they still harbor genuine feelings for each other, mostly carried through Lauren.



    Throughout the early parts of the episode Amy seems to be running around blindly. She asserts rather firmly to her mother that she needs \"to have sex.\" However, when she is dealing with Michael Amy is able to put these feelings behind her. She accepts everything that is going on.



    Allowing herself to get caught up in the moment could be perceived as a character flaw, but she is given the chance to show her strength when she asserts to Michael exactly how they will deal with it. They will not tell anyone. They will not get back together, because they made the right decision and they must think about Lauren. Finally, she tearfully accepts that it was \"goodbye.\"



    Amy has put a part of her life behind her and is now able to grow up and move on.moreless
