  • One of the best!

    “Grumpy young men” is still in the top 10 of my favorite JN episodes because it’s just plain funny! Some of the funnier moments include:

    Cindy and Libby dragging the old Jimmy across the street in an effort to earn their Buttercup Girl helpfulness badge and hearing the older Jimmy say, “Leave me alone you harpies!”

    Hearing the elders at Sam’s senior citizen buffet chant, “Dance off! Dance off” roping the older Carl into a dance contest.

    Sheen wheeling Carl along in an ambulance gurney after winning the Dance off.

    With only seconds to spare before they turn to dust, Carl announces that he wants to take a nap to “get his strength back” before stepping into the Metabolic Accelerator.

    Cindy and Libby witnessing Hugh trying to drag the Older Jimmy home for a courtesy lunch while older Jimmy is desperately hanging on to a fire hydrant. “He’s much more aggressive than we were!”

    This one is worth getting if available on DVD.
