  • Awesome episode. Why? Read on.

    Well, you see, I got home at 8:30 from a restaurant and a night of hard eating when I decided to watch TV. The War at Home is on! Some funny quotes: Remember when we made Mike wear that White Power shirt and threatened to drop him off in Harlem? Classic comedy like this gets me every time. Hillary lying to her parents: There is no Harmony's mom... there is no Harmony. Wow. Great jokes and great times from Dave and everyone in that gosh forsaken house.moreless

      Vicky: Oh, yeah? If I had to guess, I would say it was 'cause he wasn't earning enough. So, if I were you, I'd earn a little more, you know, just to be on the safe side.

    • Dave: Are you serious? Howard and Rachel?
      Vicky: Yeah.
