Episode Summary

Joan earns a pew at church, and asks Pamela to write a speech for her. Pamela and Butch decide to pull a trick on her and write about his homosexuality. After the Reverend takes the pew away from them, Joan blames Pam and Butch for it. Angry that the Minister might have taken it away because he's gay, he goes to confront him, but turns out the Minister only took it away because of his father's suspicious activities on his poker club. Butch and Charlie discover that the 70 year-olds are smoking pot and try to convince them to quit it so Joan can have her stew back. Meanwhile, Robbie decides to decorate the house with Christmas lights and gets on the paper for it.moreless

    Of the five episodes of Normal, Ohio which I was fortunate enough to see, this one takes the cake. Orsen Bean's character is one of my favorites, and in this edition he and his cronies get flat-out stoned.

    This episode contains many memorable moments, including when Charlie can't get over the fact that grandpa is doing pot. Charlie giggles, then admits he got a contact buzz from the basement smoke.

    If it is ever released on DVD, I highly recommend it. (FOX placed this program in a time slot against a very popular show, and, after only seven airings, pulled the plug)moreless
