Episode Summary

A Valentine's double date finds Will treating Ashley like a kid and Ashley is demanding r-e-s-p-e-c-t. Does Will act more like a father then a cousin?

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Valentine's Day 1994

    In the past four seasons, all of the characters of this show have grown. Some more then others. Ashley is the one who grow the most physically. In this episode you see Ashley as young beautiful women. When Will moved in, he became a second father/older brother to her. In this episode, you get to see him act more like Ashley's dad. It's not the first time this happened. Remember when Ashley first came to school. You get to see how much Ashley has grown the last time she had a problem with Will. I admire Will for trying to help her. The B Story was a little weak in that Phillp forgets Valentine's day and tried to make up for it. The C story with Hilary was better. Too bad you don't get to see Duane again.

    Overall this was a good episode. Maybe I am looking into this too much but when Ashley sang (a good song and great job of signing by her) may have set up something later in the series.moreless
  • Stop Will! In the Name of Love

    This Valentine’s Day episode was very entertaining, and also had to make Will see his cousin for a grown teenager, and for Philip to also give Ashley some respect, prompting the impromptu song at the end.

    Hillary “cooking” is a great plot aswell, making toast and painting her nails while getting Geoffrey to do the rest and wondering why everyone says cooking is difficult.

    Then Philip has the cliché forgot a romantic holiday plot but even that turned out quite well and it was great to see Will complain about a younger version of him hitting on his cousin, all the plots blending to make a great Valentines Day episode.moreless
