    An episode that makes fun of the suburbs when all of the gang heads out to Andy's house in Hoffman Estates for a backyard barbecue.



    Andy and PJ's Mom blurts out that Meredith's pregnant before Meredith even has a chance to tell Andy. Andy finds out he bought a house just like his parents. Andy also realizes he has become his father. So Sad for him.



    Mike, Kenny, and Branden vie for the only single women at the party, a single mom. Kenny tells the woman that Mike is a former alcoholic, Branden tells her about Colleen, and PJ's Mom says something embarrassing about Branden's hair. So the woman thinks they are all losers. Poor Bobby is lost trying to find the house and shows up late. When he walks in Stephanie notices and mentions to PJ that the hunted becomes the hunter when the woman goes after Bobby. The other three stand there like the three amigos wondering what just happened.



    PJ is still looking for a date for Italy and meets Evan a Botanist from the city. They seem to click and he says he'll call her.



    Nice fun episode and a reason for the whole gang to get together. I enjoyed it. Thanks for reading...moreless
  • A visit to the suburbs

    This was an excellent episode with lots of funny lines and jokes. The doubleganger or bobbyganger didn't have much to do but the idea was fun. The whole house being a duplicate of his dad's was great. PJ knowing her way around the kitchen was cool and the botanist, Evan, seems promising. I can't believe Meredith let her mother in law talk her into announcing her pregnancy before telling Andy, that was not very realistic. Bobby hooking up with Rachel with the help of the 'Meredith vouch' was cool and him almost not being able to find the place was good too. The shot were Andy acts like his dad was predictable, but still fun to see.moreless
