  • Family secrets.

    9.3
    Well, I certainly didn't expect this episode to be so good after having a decent Halloween episode, but it turned out way better than I have imagined.



    All the family secrets were hilarious, starting from the lies about the fruit, to Jimmy's grandma being revealed as alive, and many others. Really, I kept laughing all the way through.



    Also, Lucy was hilarious in her prison scenes - and so was that video Jimmy edited out at the ending. Really, everyone was amazing, especially Virginia and Maw Maw. And the old people party was funny as well; plus, Sabrina had some of the best lines yet.



    An amazing episode, IMO.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Virginia's maiden name is Thompson.

    • Hope's mother Lucy's prison number is seen to be #24601-626. 24601 was the prison number of Jean Valjean from Les Miserables, Victor Hugo's classic novel, as well as the musical adaptation. 24601 was the date of Hugo's birthday.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Jimmy: She's my mom's mother's mother, so she knows my grandmother.

    • Jimmy: If you edit out all the violence, cursing, threatening and graphic lesbian sex, Lucy is actually kinda sweet.

    • Jimmy: What do you think my grandmother is going to be like?
      Sabrina: Judging by the music, a very in-shape gay dude.

    • Sabrina: (to Jimmy) Oh, it's you. Barney thought he saw a homeless lady stealing on the security camera - you may want to get a haircut.

    • Jimmy: When I was four did I really choke on a potato chip and when I coughed it up it had Jesus's face on it?
      Burt: I thought it looked more like Kris Kristofferson, but yes - that one is true.

    • Jimmy: Did you guys lie to me?
      Burt: She did - not me, I do not practice "deceitary."
      Virginia: What about "I know what I'm doing - you won't get pregnant?"
      Burt: I believed it at the time.
      Jimmy: What did you lie to me about mom?
      Virginia: It doesn't matter - they were dumb little nothings. Like when Rexie died, he didn't really go to hunt rabbits with stone cold Steve Austin's dogs. And the reason you shouldn't pick your butt is not because there's an eel living in there and he might bite your finger off, it's just because you shouldn't pick your butt.

    • Jimmy: Can we start saying 'execute' again? I thought 'put her down' would be nicer for the baby but it's still feeling like she died at the pound.
      Burt: I thought 'barbecue' her was a smart way to live it up but no one wanted to try that.
      Jimmy: "Hope, your mommy's not here because the governor had her barbecued." Ah, it is close. There's pros and cons.
