Episode Summary

Mike has a hard time dealing with Molly being better than him at something when they go bowling.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Another first.

    I really like Mike and Molly slowly becoming a couple - it's the road to there that is quite interesting. However, even though they were great in their scenes, the person that stole the show as Carl's grandma - she was hilarious! I'm glad we'll be having her come as a guest star again in the near future.

    Joyce and Victoria were funny as always, even though I found Victoria's story a bit annoying at times. I guess her behavior makes this funnier. Mike was the weakest link with his ego being hurt after Molly beat him, and Molly was way more interesting.moreless
  • Erectile dysfunction?

    After there horrible first date Mike desides to do something simple and take Molly Bowling, but Mike's Male Ego can't handle that Molly is a terrific bowler with much or any practice. This Leads to Mike being Mad at Molly, but soon goes to say he's sorry, but ends up saving the day during A Family Crisis.

    This wasn't the best episode, and the title gave away what was going to happen at some point in the episode. It had it's up anjd it's downs, but It was still fairly funny, and Mike & Molly is always a good time.moreless

    • Carl: So what you got going on tonight?
      Mike: Nothing really, I was thinking of asking Molly out again.
      Carl: Are you crazy? You can't ask a woman out on a same date.
      Mike: Why not?
      Carl: 'Cuz even if she's got nothing going on she's gonna tell you she's got something going on so you don't think she's got nothing going on when you call and ask her what's going on.
