Could someone explain to me how this show didn't end up on CBS? Thanks.
Anyway, Grace is back at McCallister Manor, packing her totally fabulous leather suitcase and overnight bag and complaining to Bobby about Merle, and Bobby isn't listening to her because he's too busy talking about Pablo Neruda and, I mean, I know I just asked this question, but I'm really curious: does anything ever happen on this show? Maybe I'm just used to shows where, you know, people's ova get stolen, or they kill the man who mugged them by singing Carpenters tunes to them, or someone gets mauled by a man-eating tiger, or the like, but, man, is this show slow. Anyway. Grace is pleased that Bobby likes his new classes. He plops on her bed and gleefully tells her that all the kids are cool, and that he gets to eat lunch with them! Grace does not pass up this moment to tell Bobby that she told him so.
Enter Jack. Grace explains to him that she has to go to this work sleepover thingy, and that he needs to watch Bobby, and that they must behave perfectly in her absence, but that they may order take-out. Jack yelps that he can't watch Bobby constantly, because he's got a party to go to on Saturday. "Cool! Where?" Bobby asks. "Nowhere. God, you're like a tattoo," Jack gripes as Grace just sails out.
High School of the Chronically Bored. Population: me. Lunchtime. Bobby sits with two Challenge Nerds: one, Hunter Longhair, is playing with a pocket knife, so you know he's a Bad Seed. The other, NoName Shorthair, is a nonentity in this episode, so who cares? They're all gleefully making friends when the school's Ethnically Other Janitor, "Mr. Luis," confiscates Hunter's pocketknife and storms off with it, and Hunter gets mega-peeved and makes all kinds of aggrieved noises about his father and about his own dastardly plan to get his knife back, and because I've been watching TV for my entire life, I know that this will not end well for sweet, lame Bobby.
