Episode Summary

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • superb

    The family dog, Buck, dies, and everyone tries to make Kelly feel better, because Kelly is feeling more upset over it than anyone. Will they be able to cheer her up?

    OK episode. Had some good parts, Al was pretty funny in this one, but a lot of the last half of it bored me a little. For an episode about death, it didn't do much for me. You'd think we'd feel a little sympathy, but I didn't really. Oh well. It was a mostly good episode, only downside is the last half boring me a little, but the first half was really funny, so because of all of this my final grade is a B+moreless

    • (Everyone brings home a bird to be Kelly's new pet)
      Bud: He does great celebrity impressions.
      Jefferson: And he knows over 150 different words.
      Peg: That's got your father beat right there.
      Kelly: Yeah, but he's not Buck. Can he roll over and play dead?
      Marcy: Buck couldn't do that.
      Al: 'Til now.

    • (Al runs to Peg's mom's bedroom to find out what happened to Tweety)

    • Al: Would Buck like to have a little shoe up his blowhole?

    • Al: At $1200 for a 70-pound dog, do you realize how expensive your mom's gonna be? I'd say bury her at sea, but then we'd have one less sea.
      Peggy: All right, Al, you can say what you want about Mom...
      Al: Okay. She's a great, big, pile of...
      Peg: (interrupting Al) ...but I want you to be careful what you say about Buck around Kelly. She was closer to him than any of us and she's gonna need some extra love and attention.

    • (Discussing Peg's mom)
      Al: There's no pet in the world that wouldn't fit in that woman's mouth. She can unhinge her jaw like an anaconda!
