In Sam's unfortunate presence (unfortunate for Sam in more ways than one), Anthony and Annie tell Carla and Eddie that they're expecting - meaning Carla will become a grandmother - and that they plan on continuing to live at her house after the arrival of the baby. Carla is angry and goes into a deep depression. Carla implies that her issue is that she has gone from being a child herself to being a grandmother, missing out on her own growing up, including her adolescence and middle age. Being a grandmother means her life is almost over. This news in turn affects Rebecca as Carla is in hibernation while she awaits "the angel of death", so Rebecca is short staffed at the bar. Rebecca, who herself has to schlep drinks to the customers, is a reluctant and lousy waitress. The gang think that something that Carla referred to - a slumber party - might get her out of her funk, as in the words of Lilith, recreating a childhood ritual often helps in getting one out of depression around aging. ...

Slumber Party Massacred (#6.22)
4 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Sam is invited for a dinner at Carla's and this is when her son announces that she will be a grandma. Carla gets absolutely depressed about having her life going away. Her not being in Cheers is hard to handle so Rebecca decides to throw her a slumber party, but it doesn't help.

Even though it has depressing parts it is still a fun episode. My favorite part was the dinner when poor Sam can't get any food. They sure do need to learn some social skills.

The ideas with slumber party and crashing it are ridiculous which makes it understandable that Carla didn't fall for it, but they give us some fun scenes. Like the boys making that ridiculous singing entrance and watching Lilith and her friend do slumber party stuff.
