Best Friends (#5.6)
2 July 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Eddie who as we remember is a manager at the fast food place, hires Waldo because he is out of job. But Waldo is horrible at it so Eddie thinks to fire him. This was a nice storyline, I especially like the solution that they came up with. I thought that he will just fire Waldo, but this way it ended up great for everyone.And there were a lot of funny Waldo moments.

Now Laura is embarrassed by her mom because of her behavior in front of her friends. A good idea. One can relate to both characters. I remember being a teenager and while I am not Harriet's age I understand her as well. It is not a very credible outcome, but it was still sweet. I really liked the acting by JoMarie Payton
