  • A girl keeps beating Richie up.

    Richie comes home all bruised and tattered -- and Laura leans that a girl has beaten him up.

    Rob visits the girl's parents -- and meets the dad played by Bernard Fox (frequent '60s TV guest stars, notable in my mind for "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." two-parter and "The Andy Griffith Show" -- not to mention 1999's TITANIC).

    Rob looks silly sitting in the dad's easy chair, spilling candies and squishing them into the carpet as he tries to tell him what's been going on.

    Highlight of the episode is Rob's quick expression change as Richie tells his parents he beat up three kids. Rob, with a big smirk, marvels at Richie's ability, and Laura with her quick "Rob" instantly turns his smirk into a look of disappointment at what Richie did. Priceless!

    Little happens in the office, though Buddy has fun with an English accent.

    Over all, very entertaining.
