  • Jamie has a mood-swings, changing from torturing everybody to overwhelmingly loving them. Paul directs a Charity Play with his parents and their friends.

    One of the best in the whole show. It's a perfect mix of a funny story and situation comedy. The main characters not involved in the main lot shows up but not only to be there but to create another gag. Paul stays calm through the hole thing just to be humiliated at the end. And Helen Hunt shows the range of her acting changing between happy and furious beeing sarcastic and neurotic it a lot of fun. Not to forget the play: "The Pirates of Penzance" performed by a cast of 65+ amateur actors. We only hear Paul father perform the song of the Major-General in his very own way. First during practise and at the end during the performance where he adds his personal version because he forgot the original lines.

    All in all a nearly perfect episode having all we love this show for.moreless

    • Paul: So now, I've got to eat some ice-cream, I've got to run back, I've got to beg my mother to do the part. That'll be another mallet to the knee-cap of an already limping production... (pause, Jamie has stopped eating her ice-cream) Aw, sweetie, it's okay. It's just a play. (pause) You, you're slowing down on the Chubby Hubby there. What's the matter then?
      Jamie: I don't deserve Chubby Hubby.
      Paul: Sure you do.. Hey! try some of this!
      Jamie: I don't deserve the World's Best Vanilla.
      Paul: Sure... Why? [reading the label on the carton] Because of the calories?
      Jamie: No, because I'm a bad person. (pause) What's that supposed to mean about the calories?

    • Jamie: I am having a hair problem. I'm having a clothing problem, because suddenly I'm shaped like a Dr. Seuss character. So I'm not dying to be seen in public right now!
      Paul: All right sweetie.. it's 3 painless hours...
      Jamie: It's 'Pirates of Penzance' performed by your parents!
