  • The Conflict Escalates

    9.5
    The main conflict of this episode was between Lindsay, Michael, and Melanie - personally, I'm rooting for Lindsay with Melanie as a close second and Michael as a far third. The rest of the episode was sweet too, with Brian's amazing quote to Justin and Deb's new waitress. Looking forward to the next one!
  • Brian wants to keep his hold on Mikey, and stop him from moving to the suburbs.

    9.3
    With Michael now being a father and married, the couple find it's time to move to the suburbs, away from the hubbub of Liberty avenue. Brian is less than enthusiastic about the idea, and Michael nearly has to drag him to the house-warming party. Brian still wants to keep his hold on Mikey and keep him away from the boring, monagomous, heterosexual imitation lifestyle. But Michael is changing now, and he doesn't want to turn back, not even for Brian. Their disagreements over their lifestyles is causing a major rift in their friendship. witheach episode they continue to grow further and further apart.moreless
  • I smell trouble

    7.5
    I smell another Brian Mikey fight coming round the bend and, as usual, Brian is the problem. As Michael settles into domestic bliss with Ben (newly wed) and his children Brian seems to take serious action, trying to lure him back to deep dark depths of the luxurious night life and world of drugs. Unfortunately, when Michael tries to get him to walk in his new world Brian stomps all over anything. He has the ability to take the most simple of things, the most simple of requests, and just plain blow them up in smoke. What a prince, I'm not surprised at Michael's disdain. His life is changing, he is changing.moreless

    • Debbie: By George, she's fuckin' got it!

      This is a colorful version of the line "By George, she's got it!" from the musical "My Fair Lady." In both the musical and this episode, the teacher is thoroughly impressed with the remarkable progress of the student.
