    This episode was extra hilarious with the return of Ralph, one of Earl's friends. Ralph is the perfect example of a crazy redneck, who also like to hang out in tiger print bikini underwear. He is so clever, but never really thinks things through completely leading to eventual disaster.

    I like that such a silly show makes me think. I honestly was wondering through the episode, "How is Earl going to get seperated from Ralph's mom?" The eventual outcome was not only funny, but also somewhat sweet in that Ralph gets the father figure he always wanted and his mother gets the husband she has been wishing for.

    Definitley worth watching again.
