Oh Meg honey
5 June 2020 | by injury-65447See all my reviews

Has one of the most memorable Roger lines in regards to poor Meg Ryan. Roger elevates the show from something that would otherwise be just average. Great character.

Features Roger in disguise as Steve's supposed burn Victim sister - this is a highlight and what pushes the episode higher.

The episode revolves around the relationship between Stan and Hayley this time, instead of Stan and Francine in the previous episode. He is shown to be judgmental and controlling and requiring her to live by his rules and standards. The ongoing conflict between their ideologies is blossoming.

Steve just continues to unsuccessfully pursue girls.

I don't Find Hayley's boyfriend to be funny.
