  • I do not like flashbacks.

    I personally do not like flashbacks. That's why this episode seemed too gooshy and emotional for comedy. I mean, why would Sophia go live with her son when she hates his wife and they supposedly have ten kids. It seems that she should have realized that she has it a lot better in Miami.
  • The most shocking annoucement Sophia is leaving and moving to her son Phil Home.

    There is basicly two parts of this episode.This is where Sophia annouces that she was going to move and live with Phil.Of course,this has the girls shocked about it.They try to convince her not to move.Even though she decide to go because Phil's wife left him.So basicly through part 1 and 2 are flashback episodes of the past episodes,that was recently shown.Basicly to me this was pretty interesting to see what would happened to Sophie either she will move or stay with the girls.moreless
