    This episode is stupid because it aired in December right after the Christmas episode. But, the weather is hot, making you think its spring. The placement of this episode just makes no sense. And then at the end of the episode, it says Paul transfered back to Mc Kinley at the end of that semester and then the next episode, Paul is already back at Mc Kinley, making you think that the semester must have been almost over. So, when did this happen? What time of year? Its out of place. If it made any sense, Paul wouldn't have transfered back until the next year because it was in the middle of the spring semester when it happened. If this episode had aired earlier in the fall when it could have still been hot, that would have made sense. Or, if they said Paul transfered back to Mc Kinley immediately after his dad lost the money, that would have made sense. But, this doesn't make sense.moreless

    • Narrator: Whenever I look back on growing up in the suburbs, there's one thing I remember most clearly. Our neighbors, the Pfeiffer's... were always there. But we were more than just neighbors. We were like one big happy family. And at the heart of it all... were our dads. The men who set the tone. My dad, the athlete... and Paul's dad, the optometrist. Under their watchful eyes... our families grew, and prospered. One for all, and all for one. Until, that is, things started to change.

    • Narrator: The thing is, I'd been so busy tearing down my own dad... I guess I'd forgotten Paul had one to tear down, too. I wanted to tell 'em that he had nothing to fear. That any man who could produce a son like Paul... was a giant in my book. Even if his beach was under water. At the end of that semester, Paul left his prep school, and came to McKinley with me. In a way I think he was happy about it. I know I was. As for the Arnold's and Pfeiffer's... we patched things up. After all, some things are more lasting than real estate. And Mr. Pfeiffer? Think of it this way - nothing ventured, nothing gained. Besides, you never knew when the tide might go out.
