Raising Hope -- "Toy Story" -- 12/07/10

Synopsis:

Spoiler:
When Jimmy was a kid, every year Burt would get the season's hottest toy and sell them off for money, leaving Jimmy disappointed and without the coolest toys. This year, Burt lets Jimmy in on his scheme, but Jimmy makes him promise to save one toy for Hope. Meanwhile, Virginia signs up the family to participate in the church's living nativity scene in order to gain respect from the church members.


Episode 11 of 22

Last episode of the year. Will return Tuesday February 8th.

I LOVE this show. I'm really gonna miss it during the hiatus.

The lady calling Hope a murderer's baby and then flashing to Hope, looking adorable as usual, was some great editing.

Jimmy cracking nuts with the bottom of the nutcracker was so perfectly in-character for the family.

I lost it at Maw Maw dressed up as Joseph. That was just so disturbingly hilarious.

I loved the maniacal looks on Virginia's face.

Burt (to Virginia): "We're in this weird dude's house, he's a trip."
Burt (to Barney): "Not you, some other dude's house."
Burt (to Virginia): "No, it's this dude."

Sabrina running and tripping over the reindeer caught me so off guard and probably gave me one of the biggest laugh of the night

I love Dancing Dan and I love even more that they don't overuse him.

Barney buying the doll back and then Burt running up and advertising his lawn and pool service.

Burt continually watching Maw Maw throughout the episode was a great gag, then realizing he couldn't just let her die was a nice, funny moment.

I'm going to miss the show on its hiatus. It's so consistently great.

"Don't go over there, Dancing Dan. Those people make fun of you all the time. We only do it occasionally."

I wonder if Sabrina's trip was real and they decided to keep in the show.

"Who moved my vagina?" -possibly the best one-liner on any show this season!

I will also miss this show during the hiatus. It has been pretty consistent and it has used the main and minor characters well like Barney and Shelley.

Meh. This episode didn't do much for me, though I loved Sabrina tripping over the reindeer.

Really? I found this to be one of their strongest episodes yet.

Someone else said it before and I'll say it again, the actor that plays Burt is pure comedy gold! He's definitely the best one on this wonderful show. Although the rest of the cast seems to be hitting on all cylinders as well. Just watching Burt's face every time Maw Maw was doing something that may end up killing her (using a metal fire poker to poke the fake fire on the TV, putting rat poison in the coffee, etc.) was hilarious!

Agreed!

I couldn't stop laughing at the church woman telling the congregation, "This year I've uped my pledge. Up yours!"

Burt's facial expressions looking over mawmaw and at Barney's house were absolutely hysterical!

Rarely am I surprised by a joke on network TV. This one made me choke on my dinner.

Was a funny ep, but the thing with needing that doll was dumb.

So instead of keeping the $800 and using it for something for his daughter, he gives it to the weird guy for the doll, then Dad gives him another $1200 towards the doll, so $2000 for the dol for an infant that has no idea of one doll from another.

MOney seems to be a hard to come by for them, maybe they could have used it for something important.
