Meanwhile, Dylan goes to his old friend, Christine Pettit, from the FBI to help him find his stolen money. Unable to help Dylan, Christine then contacts an alcoholic, former FBI agent-turned-bounty hunter/private investigator, named Jay J. Jones (Jonesy), who contacts Dylan on Christmas Day and offers to track down his money in exchange for getting a full share of it.

Quotes

J. Jay Jones: I don't want you think of me as a private investigator or a bounty hunter... or some crackpot, drunkard, oddball ex-FBI agent-for-hire. Now, look at me. I want you to think of me as a salvage expert. Okay, here's how it is: I go after your dough and maybe I find it. If I do then, whatever amount I find, I get half.
Dylan McKay: What? Half? What... are we married or something?

The One With Donna's Birthday...
15 May 2016 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I'm going to start out by saying that I don't love this episode. It's sub-par. It's better than okay, but worse than great. I think I don't like it anymore is because of Ray, whom I absolutely hate.

In this episode, Donna's rude, and snobbish Mother, Felice, offers Ray money to break up with her. This was just a test, but Felice was hoping it would work. So was I. Jesse, and Andrea try to work out what religion to raise Hannah in, and it's not going over very well. Clare introduces David to her Dad during a USC faculty Christmas party. Jim, and Cindy visit Brenda in England (but you don't see Brenda), and Brandan is left at home to take care of Kelly as she recovers from the fire. Meanwhile, Valerie visits her Mother in Buffalo, and Nat hosts a feed-the-homeless dinner at The Peach Pit.

Best part of the episode: Nat's generosity.

Worst part of the episode: Ray.

Overall, I give this episode a 6 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Good.
