Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Funny Halloween.

    It doesn't have to be Halloween for things to get crazy on this show, but it sure makes things even more interesting. The episode pretty much splits up in a couple of different stories, each interesting in their own way.

    Starting off, we get another look at how Sabrina and Jimmy will get together eventually. I love how the writers are keeping it slow, and I for once want to have it stay that way for awhile. This will-they-won't-they formula always works on comedy shows, so why should this one be any different? Plus, this show definitely brings its own touch to it.

    Second, Burt was funny with the way he tried to get hugged by Jimmy. Also, Virginia and Maw Maw were hilarious as they did revenge on that woman. All in all, a great episode.moreless

    • Policeman: What's going on?
      Maw Maw: Mommy and I are doing a trick.
      Virginia: The b*tch who lives here wouldn't give us any candy. You're not really going to hassle us for pulling a prank on Halloween, are ya?

    • Burt: (explaining why he scares Jimmy just so he can get hugged) I'm sorry but when you turned thirteen you barely hugged me anymore and then that damn high five came along. I had to do whatever I could to feel your chest against mine.
