Storyline

With Rachel's help, Harriette wins a radio call-in contest and nabs the grand prize: a new car. But just who deserves the car more becomes a major sore point between the sisters, leading to a huge argument. Carl isn't there to intervene; the acrophobic Winslow - the butt of jokes at the precinct when he was unable to foil a robbery because of his fear of heights - finds himself in the worst possible situation, thanks to Urkel: high in the sky in a hot-air balloon, with no way to get down. However, Carl is able to save the day when Urkel nearly falls out of the balloon. Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

High Hopes (#2.17)
4 June 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a pretty good episode

The story is a good one. Steve helps Carl to overcome his fear of heights in a trip at a hot air balloon and Carl saves his life when Steve almost falls out.

The substory is about Harriet and Rachel fighting over who won a car in a radio competition and then realize that family is more important.

The first story is of course much better. Steve was hilarious. I was really laughing when he was telling how he overcame his fear. And the scene in the balloon was greatly done. I love it when they manage to make it so exciting.
