  • In this episode, the comedy kicks in for real, and I found myself laughing out load more than once. And then suddenly, as have happened in the two previous episodes, there is a lump in my throat.moreless

    The ep starts of with a bad break-up. Sarah finds that she can not date a man that below her in number (She is a 9 he is - a 4?) So she breaks up with him at his work, a coffee shop, giving him its not you its me routine. So far so good. When she hits the car, it breaks down, and so does her mobile phone. To go back into the coffee-shop to ask for a phone-call, where ALL his co-workers has been told about the bad break-up, is hilariously tragic.

    At her brothers house, he gets a phone-call from max's school saying he has been kicked out, due to ruining an aquarium that made a disturbing sound. (Typical asperger move) So then the hunt for a new school that will fit Max (with aspergers) needs begins. In this mess, his sisters football team is having a big match. Witch they win. Witch nobody sees, because its forgotten because of Max an his asperger issues. The scene where Max sister speaks to her father about this problem, and that its not a NEW problem, its been going on for years, and he tells her he understands that, and sees her, well, the lump in the throat is there. Also Crosby is with his new_found_out son takes him to work in his music studio. There the kid ruins a knob on the equalizer(?)and runs off to hide. Crosby girlfriend shows up unexpectedly and Crosby chickens out when it comes to tell her about his new_found_out son. The kid hears him lying. But later he says to him that he understand his scared because that was just why he himself run away after ruining the knob on the equalizer. So they bond. Lump in throat no. two.

    I could go on about the episode, but that is the highlights I guess. The episode ends with Sarah going back to her no. 4 boyfriend who immidiedly take her back (off course, she's a 9) Id rather see her with looser-husband, hope we get to see more of him...moreless
