My Thoughts

I will never think of Funky Town the same way again. From the newly weds having sex on the kitchen floor, mocking Adam schedueling sex (Funky town) with Kristina. Then Crosby forgetting Jabbar at school, leading to him sync'ing his calendar with Jasmine. Kritina & Adam talking about buying a puppy for the family, with Jabbar getting the wrong idea and throwing a fit over the puppy he wanted. Max might be having a hard time without Haddie? I guess life won't get easier for Kristina and Adam, now we have the threat of cancer hanging over the families head. The final scenes were well played out with no sound, but you knew what was happening. Sarah is getting to know Hank a little better, it was nice to see Drew warm up to him after being dumped by Amy. Also good to see Julia winning Victor's trust and the hug in the end was a nice touch.
