  • Joe and Brian compete with each other to get Helen the "perfect" present.

    This is a classic "Wings" episode. The majority of the episode was great. Joe and Brian attempting to one up each other by overspending on their gift for Helen's birthday. I really appreciated how they incorporated clips from Helen's childhood birthday part into the episode. That gave it a more authentic atmosphere. The ending was wonderful as well. It showcased Joe's true feelings for Helen in a way that was dignified and kept some degree of subtleness. Helen's reaction to Joe's final present was a let down. What an inarticulate, classless way to conclude an otherwise terrific and heartwarming episode!
