    This episode was like the worse episode ever! I didn't like it at all. Carol and Mike just switch jobs for a day. Carol has to teach the Bobby, Peter and Greg all about bunting in baseball. Mike, on the other hand, has to help Marsha cook tons of meals for - Well, I forgot what for, I think to get some kind of badge. The boys plan to make Carol's day miserable because Mike tells them about everything about the miniature brt, though nobody was betting anything. Mike makes a mess doing everything, which leads to him, washing dishes, mopping, sweeping, what else? The point is, this epsiode was boring! The only funny part was when it took like an hour for Carol and Mike to get upstairs.moreless

  • NOTES (1)


    • At the beginning of the episode, as Alice tosses an apple to each of the boys, she says "Tinker...Evers...Chance." This is a reference to Joe Tinker, Johnny Evers, and Frank Chance. All three played for the Chicago Cubs in the early 1900s and were immortalized in a poem by Franklin P. Adams called "Baseball's Sad Lexicon."
