An Officer and a Waldo (#4.7)
29 June 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The main story of the episode is about Waldo getting upset because Eddie calls hims stupid and joining the army. Eddie and Urkel then go to rescue him

Very funny. Waldo is a good secondary character. The scene where he kisses Eddie's girlfriend was hilarious and one really does eel bad for him that he was called an idiot by his best friend. So some good acting by Shawn Harrison here.

Eddie and Urkel dealing with the Sergeant was very good as well. Especially when he tries to tell Urkel to call him Sergeant and not Sir. And the scene where Waldo says that he didn't sign any papers and just saw a long line and stood in it almost made me cry from laughing.
