  • The single best episode of Who\\\'s the Boss.

    I believe that this episode is the best episode of Who\\\'s the Boss? It had very funny and showed Sam and Tony in a loving father/daughter way. It is by far one of the best episodes if not the best episode. Tony buying that car was just too hilarious and you have to laugh out loud. Everyone has their moments like this with their parens, maybe not this bad but it is very easy to relate to. Although there were little to none T&A moments in this episode, I still think this is a very good episode. Makes me glad that this show comes on my local UPN station at 1 and 1:30 PM. They just showed this episode too, I taped it so i\\\'ll always have it. :-)moreless

    • Angela: All right. No angel food cake for you.
      Mona: Oh, is that what it is? Looks like an albino meatloaf.

    • Angela: Oh, honey, so good to see you happy for Sam.
      Jonathan: Are you kidding? She's my ticket out of this burg.

    • Jonathan: You got your license, but it didn't make you a better person.

    • Tony: She had the biggest smile I've ever seen at the DMV. In fact, she had the only smile I've ever seen at the DMV.
      Mona: I don't know. The guy that gave me my test left with a smile.

    • Tony: Samantha, no way can I let you drive with Bonnie behind the wheel!
      Samantha: Why not?
      Tony: Well, first of all-- (Bonnie's car screeches down the road) I rest my case.

    • Angela: Sam, when I was growing up, all the coolest guys had cars like this. I remember, I went to the drive-in in one of these.
      Mona: Yeah, I remember, too--with six girls.
      Angela: That's what I told you, Mother, but Johnny Hampstead didn't stop smiling for two days.

    • Tony: C'mon, get in, and get a feeling for your car.
      Samantha: Oh, what a feeling.

    • Angela: When the kids make fun of you, does your face turn red and your palms get sweaty, and you want to dig a hole and crawl into it?
      Samantha: Yeah, exactly. How did you know?
      Angela: I have been there many, many times.

    • Tony: Wait a minute. Let me get this straight. I have a $250 deductible, and you say the car's only worth $200, so if it's not found, I owe you fifty bucks?
