    --------May Contain Spoilers about the plot--------

    This episode showcases the comedic aspect of Perfect Strangers perfectly. I saw this episode for the first time in 2007 through re-runs and I have to say that it still had me laughing out loud. The plot of this episode is completely unrealistic. The whole idea that Larry loses his memory, but regains it for a few minutes before losing it again is totally unrealistic, but chances are that if you are a fan of this series you don't watch it for the realism anyway; you watch it for the great buddy comedy it provides. To me, this episode has three great moments, the first is watching Larry fall down the stairs, the second is when Balki tries to teach Larry everything he knows again, and the third (and in my opinion one of the funnies moments in Perfect Strangers history) is when Larry and Balki have dinner with Jennifer and her mother. It had me laughing out loud the entire time. If you are able to suspend reality for a short time and appreciate the comedy of perfect strangers, then you should really make this episode something you watch and watch it soon.moreless
