I nearly pissed myself with that "it's Lando" line.

Nice episode. Luke's newfound interest in the opposite sex could lead to some funny moments.

The kids were the highlight of this episode. I wasn't a huge fan of the story lines for the adults, which is rare for this show.

Manny was great in this one.

"If you're hungry for broccoli later, you'll find a piece in your teeth."

This is such a funny show and packed with little under the breath type of lines. I enjoy all the characters....even Lily as of late.

I knew Phil would be the one to say something about Lando.

Manny and Luke owned this episode. Good to see that Luke is a closer.

Cam's comment about Claire being a "ranch house" got a chuckle out of me. Engaging episode overall.

The kids stole the show. Luke has been gold since season two.

I loved how Manny refused to be friend-zoned.

Luke was great. And Lilly finally got some laughs out of me, but mostly because of Alex and Haley's reactions as they realized how terrible they are at babysitting.

Lily did not make me laugh. She needs to be written out of the show. Maybe the writers could make up a storyline of Vietnam issuing a recall.

Damn Alex and Hayley looked good in this episode.

And the kids sub-plots were definitely the funniest.

Manny is so hilarious and charming, I don't get why some people are put off by him.

Claire and Phil's sub-plot was okay, Cam and Mitchell's was fine, Jay and Gloria's was the best, especially with Billy Dee Williams coming along for the ride.

They may just hire an older actress in a season or two.

Terrible actress and has no comic timing.

Yawn...do they really need guest actors every week when they have a cast of 11 that they are trying to cram into a 23 minute show?

This. Mitchell and Cam usually annoy me but I liked them in this episode. Their reaction to walking into the different clubs was very funny. They went from one terrible Lily to another. This kid is horrible. Who cast her. She just kind of shouts a few lines with no delivery or timing.

Come on. She's at least as good as anyone in 2 Broke Girls.

His comeback line with the broccoli was great.

I like them when they get along with one another or act as a team. Most of their storylines on this show revolves around them proving which one of them is right or better at something which gets awfully shrill and grating. Now that I think about it, it's just Mitchell I don't like because he's such a one-note character who is often acting this way. I like Cam.

Did anyone catch what Luke said to the girl about the broccoli in her teeth?
