  • When Rob is invitied to his boss' house for dinner,but Laura informs him that they can't go because they have sick son at home. Rob talks Laura into going, but she still is worried that something might happen, which it does, but not what Laura expects.

    For the first episode of this great series it is pretty good. I love the scene at the office where Buddy and Rob are arguing over what to put in the show and of course one cannot forget the constant insults thrown in Mel's direction by Buddy. I also enjoyed the scene where they are at Alan's apartment and Buddy, Sally, and Rob perform. I absoultely died laughing at Rob's impression of Laura's Uncle Henry. I still don't know how he makes his legs that loose. All in all it was a good episode and I am looking forward to seeing the other episodes that have helped make this show a classic.
