Quotes

Jason Marsden: One time, wouldn't it be incredible- I mean, truly incredible- if a beautiful girl came right up to me, tapped me on the shoulder and said, "I've had my eye on you. You are unbelievably handsome. You wanna talk for a few minutes?"
[He sighs and looks up]
Jason Marsden: Is that too much of a thing to ask?
Alexis: Excuse me.
[She taps Eric on the shoulder and he turns around]
Alexis: I've had my eye on you. Are you aware that you're unbelievably handsome?
Jason Marsden: [Jason looks up again] You missed.

This Parenting Gig Is Rough
1 March 2014 | by (victoria b.c canada) – See all my reviews

Cory is handed a special class assignment, to try to portray a perfect family. Feeny sets up Shawn and Minkus as brothers, with Cory and Topanga being the parents. Naturally, this doesn't go down to well with any of them. Eric is cajoled into getting a job as a model in the mall, qutting his job in the process. After much debate, Alan decides to let Eric do what he wants, hoping he learns from mistakes. This was an excellent episode, very interesting as well. Nobody is an ideal family, nobody. If you tell me you have the "perfect family" , I'd say you're full of it. Parenting is not as easy as it looks. The Matthews parents are as close to ideal as you're gonna get. They're far from perfect, but they care very much about their kids and their fates. You have to learn from the mistakes you make, that's your punishment, the suffering. That will accomplish more than grounding, lecturing, or being accosted. Parenting takes work on both sides. Eric being dressed up as a human lobster is classic. Cory's storyline is very good as well, but I'd say Eric's was the best. Wait until you see Minkus's fake tattoo! BMW fans will love this one

Note. Be on the lookout for California Dreams star, Kelly Packard! She has a cameo in this episode

9/10
