Jailhouse Blues (#3.15)
25 June 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I really hope the show will stop having those preachy moral lessons episodes for some time. Those are not their best moments and I really don't give a damn what a churchgoer like Harriet defines as "cool"

But it had some funny moments so let's concentrate on them:

I really liked how grandma Winslow was translating for everyone the street slang of the early 90's

Another great sitcom worthy moment was when they took their pics in jail, both Eddie and Urkel look just too funny

And the final scene when "ex con" Urkel talks to Laura and she hits his tongue with the door was a good part of this episode as well
