Episode Summary

Problem Child 2
Junior's back in his first adventure since his last! Junior and Ben move to Mortville which seems like the perfect town to live in. The Healys have a nice new house--and Junior get's a cool new room! And young women have formed a line at Ben's door in order to get a piece of him (romantically). Ben does feel he should get remarried so Junior can have a mom, so while Junior adjusts to his new school which includes a little girl who's as bratty as Junior and a teenage brain-dead ignoramous bully in Junior's sixth grade class, Ben finds some dates, which Junior sends running for the hills, in the meantime Junior pulls his infamous tricks on people: blowing up barbecues, taping the bully to the chalkboard, videotaping his babysitter and her boyfriend having sex and broadcasting it for the whole neighborhood to see, same old same old. Meanwhile, Ben meets the gorgeous school nurse (after the school's satellite dish get's pushed on his head) and they, well he, believes it's love at first site, until he meets LaWanda Dumore, a greedy business women who wants to marry Ben and send Junior to boarding school--in Baghdad! So Junior and his new friend, Trixie, must get rid of LaWanda (any way possible!) to bring their parents together!moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (6)

      • Continuity: On Junior's first day of school he walks into school empty-handed but from the hallway on he has a bagged lunch.

      • Revealing mistakes: When everybody on the Crazy Dance vomits, it is obvious that the liquid is not issuing from the people's mouths but from a point behind them.

      • Continuity: When Junior, Trixie, and their parents get their picture taken at the pizza parlor, everyone smiles except for Trixie. Later, when Ben takes a look at the picture, Trixie is smiling.

      • Continuity: When Lawanda approaches the meteorite, she holds her left arm to stop it. In the next shot it's her right arm, then back to her left.

      • Revealing mistakes: After Trixie is shown close up driving a bulldozer during the wedding scene, a wide shot shows that an adult is driving instead.

      • Factual errors: When Junior sets the Crazy Dance on the highest speed, there is ample evidence that the Crazy Dance's rotational speed has increased while the centrifugal force has decreased. This is a physical impossibility.
