Four words on a sign on Julie's back:
27 July 2001 | by (Houston, TX) – See all my reviews

I always remember the very first episode where Matthew played that trick on his witch of a big sister Julie--on her way out the door, he stuck a piece of paper to her back with four words:

"I STUFF MY BRA!"

That one move of Matthew's had me hooked for the entire two years.

Who could forget the "Dregs of Humanity"--especially "Bones" flopping down like he's stoned! BWA-HA-HA!!! Or Eli having his arms and legs all tied to ropes and moving them all up and down to make the band play? HEE HEE HEE!!!

Of course, the episode where Norman Lamb hired guys to rob the house and got Matthew on a game show to win the furniture was too much! Seymour Lamb--NYaaaahhhh!!! (eyes roll up in the head and collapse in a seizure!) BWA HA HA HA!!!

This show could have had a great run, but it was cancelled--too soon as usual!!!
