But don't you think it's a little weird to eat something that you've been bouncing on the floor?
Dad, you haven't really been eating them after they've been on the floor, have you?

....is the way I used to be with "Clarissa Explains It All." Meaning, you don't think all day 'oh, man, i gotta see the show tonight', but you kinda' plan on doing it; or if you're flipping through the channels and "Clarissa" pops up, you're glued, and HAVE to watch it til the end.
My two favorite recurring elements in the show were: (1)The animosity Clarissa had toward 'Ferg-face'(one of his many "clarissa" nicknames!), and the energetic, off-the-wall, intelligent, and of course hilarious arguments between the two because of simple childhood sibling rivalry. Also(2) The fact that the show made her look so technologically 'astute' to her computer. It was rediculous, but at the time being 12 or 13, I was actually hoping it was real so that I would be able to turn my computer screen into a cable TV screen if I got grounded from TV!!
Anyway, the parents are nothing special, Sam is ok, but the two most memorable characters by *far* were Clarissa and Ferguson Darling.
