  • A beautiful example of this fine, heart-touching show.

    This was a wonderful episode and the first I had seen in some time. Truth be told, I think anyone would be upset if their best friend scheduled his or her big party--one which their friend was not able to have due to religion--on their birthday, especially when the two friends have always celebrated their birthdays together.

    Kevin shows quite a display of character by sucking up his disappointment and showing up at Paul's bar mitzvah anyway. The kids end up having a wonderful time and Kevin is glad he went--and I was delighted to hear Simon and Garfunkel's "Bookends", one of the most beautiful pieces of music written played during the photo montage at the end.
