  • As funny as this episode is, it sets a wrong tone and leaves a bad aftertaste.

    Overall, this episode is quite funny, meeting the expectations for the series. However, the writers of this episode leave us with big unanswered questions.

    So this ex-girlfriend of Carlton's comes to the Banks' mansion with a baby she says is Carlton's and he rides along with the story so he can lie about his virginity, using the baby as proof that he had sex with this girl. Things get serious once Carlton decides to marry her. Although she appears to accept marrying Carlton, she then gets scared once she finds out about Carlton's plans for the future.

    But what happened with the baby? Did Carlton and Cindy agree beforehand to lie to the family alleging the baby was Carlton's, or was Cindy trying to scam Carlton to have him be the father of the child, and Carlton was consenting the scam so he could lie about his virginity? Simply put, this episode leaves a bad aftertaste in the viewer's mind.
