  • Mr. Hayes receives an ear full when he comes to L.A. to talk to David about becoming a responsible father! David's speech to him MADE this episode! :D

    Blue Moon is down and out! Literally, right out the door! Agnes is trying to stop people taking all their stuff away. Unable to keep paying the bills or the workers Blue Moon has finally lost it. Not even Bert can keep the workers since they're not even getting paid now. They want "no work and pay!" Finally, Mr. Addison arrives and Bert and Agnes are happy to see him! Not long afterward Mr. Hayes makes an appearance at the worse possible time to talk to David about what he's going to do about Maddie and the baby. Maddie had told her mother and her mother had told her father. Now Daddy wants to know David's side of the story or really what he thinks is David's side. I hate the fact that Maddie is saying she doesn't know who's baby it is! COME ON!!! She was with David a whole month after Sam. Another reason why Sam should have NEVER been introduced to this show! I hate Sam repercussions! Ugh! Even when he's not here he's still causing problems! AHH! Anyway, David had dinner with Daddy Hayes and of course that one night stand girl shows up to make matters worse. Daddy Hayes bad mouths David, saying "it's bad enough that David is the father of his daughter's baby." See, everyone KNOWS this is David's baby. Even Mama Hayes thinks so. lol! Finally, we get to be best part of the whole episode or maybe the whole season! David follows Daddy Hayes onto the plane booking a flight to Denver of course. Not going all the way to Chicago with Daddy which I think he should have! Never mind what Maddie thinks! Ugh! David makes Daddy Hayes listen to him and right here everything David's been through seems to be pouring out of him! I can't help but tear up every time I listen to him say this speech! THIS SPEECH is the exact and complete reason why we should have seen a wedding between these two! I also can't help but wish someone could show Maddie all the crap this man has done for her! Right then and there would be enough to show her this man is the man for her! At least it should! The show knows it's a show right! The character of Maddie Hayes should have watched ALL these episodes to see all of what David did for her!!! LOL! It could have happen! Seriously! Oh well, I'll say this. Bruce should have won many awards for this scene alone. We need a show stopping speech or performance out of Cybill now!
