My Thoughts

Love the car scene with Sarah and the kids, pity they cut part of what was in the sides. Mr Cyr saying Hi and Amber jumping in to agree with him. Of course she has a crush on her teacher, just hope she doesn't end up hurt when she finds out her mom is dating him. Cute scene at the bar with Sarah, love the note vs texting thing, Lauren would approve. The scene with Crosby was good to see after reading about it last week. Of course loved a the scene where Mark asks her out, she looks so happy.

(BTW Is it me or does Mae look more like Lauren than Alexis does?)

The Adam and Kristina story was a nice and kinda tied the episode together, I'm not sure if I'd ask my sister about that subject. I guess us guys have to trust they are no faking it, or at least just be happy with what we get :P

Nice to have official word that Jabbar is Crosby's kid (like that wasn't going to happen) And trying to tell his parents. Love the comeback "What kind of name is Zeek" :lol: Also you could see they were surprised when seeing Jabbar for the first time. Nice play date with Crosby taking the lead in the puppet show. Love the bike riding at the end and Braverman on the seat.

The Max scenes were good, Adam/Kristina mocking the aide but then later seeing how good she was and Kristina opening up to Gaby.

Crosby at the play date noticing Racquel was a nice way to force the issue between Julie/Joel, it was understandable for her to ask that she not be a part of there life, but it was good that Julia rose above it in the end and didn't force Sydney and Harmony to 'break up'.

I must say I loved the whole ep.
