      Well, what a great episode. Joy might not be interested in Paul after all - she might be be in for Cathy's hotness lol. That little kiss at the toilet looked awfully convincing.



      Other than that - Cathy and Paul want to adopt a baby, so Cathy steals some papers from Dr. Attikus Sherman to prove to the agencies that she is "healthy" so they could get a baby to raise. Paul disagrees and takes her to Joy's seminar where he even took a stand as a speaker (unplanned), Shawn gets a stalker played by Victor Garber (too bad his and Susan Sarandon's scene was cut) and Adama is sticking it to the Christian girl who almost got both of them killed runnin' across the highway - well, sticking from behind. All in all, it was a highly enjoyable and entertaining episode.



      And what a nice little surprise at the end - Cathy posted on Paul's blog about the adoption and the tricky position they're in (health-wise) and this guy replied to them, he has a pregnant wife and they'de be willing to give the baby up for adoption - to them. :) Next week's episode looks damn fine too. 9,0/10
