  • Rob, while in the dentist chair, dreams about being a cowboy.

    A very different episode, played broadly with lots of guffaws and groaners -- but quite entertaining.

    It's nice to see all the cast in the final episode filmed, including semi-regular Allan Melvin (recently passed away).

    Morey plays a great deputy sheriff, and Mel as Big Bad Brady's younger brother, is told to shut up and "stand in the corner". He moves to the corner, and faces the wall. Great!

    Laura is not particularly good in this episode, sings off-key, but has a great song title that they play with several times.

    Wrong aims by both Rob and Brady lead to some good laughs. Not a highlight, but entertaining and different.
