  • Jimmy and Christine deal with their son's rampant lying. Caught between their love for their child and the need to discipline him, they stumble onto a clever solution.

    I stumbled onto this episode just as Dominic\'s parents stumbled onto how to discipline their son, and I was just as pleasantly surprised. It is not every day that one sees quality television like this. Overall, \"Yes, Dear\" is a well written show, but this particular episode excells. The story deals with a common yet sensitive family issue in a heart warming way that harkens back to the classic \"Cosby Show\" sensibility. Excellent!



    A word of caution: not for the violent at heart. This is not for the \"CSI\" or \"24\" fan, but is definately as strong of a story.moreless

    • Jimmy: Hey, uh, if Dominic asks, just uh, just tell him I went to the grocery store.
      Christine: You want me to lie to him?
      Jimmy: Yeah. I'll be back around eleven to give you your spanking.

    • Christine: (to Jimmy) How hard did you hit him?
      Greg: (whining) Hard! He hit him hard!

    • Christine: What happened to Big, Bad Daddy?
      Jimmy: I made him up. He's not a real person.

    • Greg: What are you saying? You'd never spank Sammy?
      Kim: No.
      Greg: I'm just saying, never is a pretty big word, Kim. You were the one that said you would never listen to rap music, but who was folding clothes yesterday and I walked in on em and they were singing "H to the Izzo, V to the Izzay"?
      Kim: They play it in my step class. And we're never spanking Sammy. And that's the schizzle, my nizzle.

    • Jimmy: I don't really know what to do.
      Christine: Jimmy, do what you said you were gonna do.
      Jimmy: Yeah, I was kind of vague. I just said that, ya know, if you wake the bull, you'll get the horns.
      Christine: So? Give him the horns.
      Jimmy: (shrugging) I don't even know what that means.

    • Jimmy: Christine, our next car has gotta have heated seats like Greg's. Feel my chalupas. They're still warm.

      (Christine grabs the taco bell bag from him)
      Christine: (looking in bag) Jimmy, these are gorditas.
      Jimmy: I know. Feel my chalupas.

    • Greg: (to Jimmy) You try this again tomorrow and I swear I'll put in one of Kim's books on tape. I have the Ya-Ya Sisterhood and I'm not afraid to use it.

    • Kim: Dominic lied? He never lies.
      Christine: I know. It's this new thing with him. I mean, that's his fourth lie this week. Well, five, if you count Friday when he said he liked your gazpacho.
      Kim: He doesn't like my gazpacho?
      Christine: Nobody likes your gazpacho, Kim. It's cold soup. Can we end the charade?
      Kim: I was just trying to give your family a little culture. I bet if I shoved it in a Hot Pocket and smothered it in Velveeta, the four of you would be out back wrestling over it.

    • Christine: Hey Kim. Did you tell [Dominic] he could play Greg's guitar?
      Kim: No. But he can't play any worse than Greg. My last ultrasound, the baby had its thumbs in its ears.

  • NOTES (2)

    • Co-executive producers Diane Burroughs and Joey Gutierrez have left the series and moved on to their own, Still Standing. Taking their place are some more ex-Family Guy (which Greg Garcia and Bobby Bowman both worked on) personnel, Chris Sheridan and Danny Smith. After the fourth season, they both leave themselves, and go back to Family Guy.

    • Music: "Time in a Bottle" (Jim Croce), "Moonshadow" (Cat Stevens) and "H to the Izzo" (Jay-Z), performed by Anthony Clark; "Baby Got Back" (Sir Mix-a-Lot), performed by Jean Louisa Kelly.
