    I love this episode!!!!!! This is one of the episodes where all 4 situations are hilarious. Lois on the jury is funny. I love how she tries so hard to get everyone else to take it seriously, but then it turns out that she's basing the situation on her experience with Francis. Meanwhile, Hal and Abe are trying to figure out the case that they think Lois is on the jury for, but it was actually a completely different one. The scenes with Reese, Malcolm, Dewey, and Stevie at the sewer are also funny, especially when Reese won't shut up about seeing Stevie's mom naked. And Francis and his friends all hiding from the grizzly bear while they're ice fishing. I like when Pete says, "Don't worry, I've been around bears many times. All we have to do is be quiet, and she'll fly away; unless she's warming her eggs." There are many other funny lines as well, but I couldn't name all of them. This episode gets a perfect score from me.moreless
  • I liked it!

    8.5
    Lois is on jury duty. She is trying to take it seriously, but everyone else just wants to go home. Hal also tries to solve a case with Abe's help. Malcolm and Reese have seen Stevie's mom in the nude and they loved it. They take Dewey to the sewer and get lost. They fight at first, but then they start really talking. They talk about girls and stuff. Francis and his buddies go ice fishing, but it turns out to be a drag. Pete runs off with the truck after a bear scare.



    This episode was pretty good! There wasn't really anything that stood out to me though. This episode gets an 8.5 out of 10!moreless

    Well, this episode was not what I was expecting to be, I mean it was no funny at all, Lois takes a job for jury duty, and later she discovers that she just accepted the job in order to correct the kid how she did not do it with Francis, and she walks out. Meanwhile, Hal and Abe discuss of how was the murdered about, and they don't seem to get into an agreement between each other, Malcolm, Reese, and Stewie take Dewey to the sewers and get lost.moreless

    • (Lois is upset about the prejudices and disinterest shown by the other jurors.)
      Lois: This is not about how you feel about cops. This isn't about who you like and hate. This is about what you believe happened, based on the facts of the trial. Did Marty or did Marty not, in fact, steal the motorcycle?
