    buglover... she was a trip!

    I love how the writers of this show are throwing some ironic lines for these guest stars. Margot Kidder's character getting Nora to smoke pot was fun, especially considering MK's history. Then in one scene between Kitty and the Senator she says something about not being Demi Moore and the Senator says something like "I used to have a big crush on her"... very St. Elmo's Fire-esque. He's had a few other ironic oneliners, too.

    See, and I was thinking of About Last Night! Either way, it gave me a little chuckle too.

    Loved the opening of the show with everyone on the phone and how they were all avoiding talking to their mother. They've really developed the relationships between these siblings in a believable way. I'm hoping this isn't the last we see of Scotty - he's one of my favorite characters.

    Promiscuious kids

    I don't mean to be a prude, but I am wondering, is it common for young professionals to sleep around so much. The gay brother particularily seems to be a sex addict. and Calista's character is on her thrid relathinship since the show started. I may just be totally removed from reality,,,, but I am curious if this much sleeping around is normal.


    I guess I should ask my 20something kids huh?
    Because I said so ....

    Well, remember, this is not a reality show; it's written for entertainment, however I don't think it's necessarily all that unrealistic. Especially if you're not all married up at those ages...the thinking being you've got to have your fun while you can.

    They should win an Emmy just for the first 5 minutes of last nights show. It was brilliant!

    I don't think it's fair to try and compare a tv show to real life, at least as far as how much people sleep around. Everything seems much more sudden on a tv show, as time is compressed (several days squeezed into 45 minutes, shown only once a week). Also remeber, it's a tv show, they have to have as much drama as possible.

    I think that you can watch the episode at abc.com, if not there then it's probably on youtube.

    I agree. You might want to ask someone not related to you, if you are the sensitive type.

    I liked Rob Lowe's reference to Demi Moore as well. Seems the writers are having a lot of fun with inside jokes with him.

    I'm actually starting to get a little turned off by all the bed hopping on this show. I get it, they have sex. And I like that the writers aren't afraid to show Kevin have a sex life, but he is the worst of all. I don't mind that he has sex, I just don't want to see it every episode, nor for any of the other characters for that matter.

    Great episode tonight. It looks like Sarah's marriage might be headed for divorce. Her husband is boring anyway. I loved the look on Tommy's face when he saw Rebecca. He clearly sees a family resemblance. Now we have to wait two weeks for the next episode.
