Storyline

Eddie has joined the ballet class with his girlfriend, Greta and tells his friends about it. To his dismay and displeasure, his closest friends, Waldo and Steve, started laughing in his face about the whole thing. They make fun at the fact that he'll be wearing tights and a tutu. Greta doesn't think it is funny as some of the athletes they know has taken ballet before. It doesn't stop them from constantly laughing at him. Meanwhile, Laura's on and off boyfriend, Curtis, mistakes Harriette for her grandmother, Mother Winslow. She is insulted by his comment and wears younger clothes and a wig to hide her age. He later apologizes to her for the mistake when Laura tells him that was her mother. At the recital, Eddie and Greta begins performing Swan Lake. During that time, Waldo and Steve continue their ongoing laughter, much to the dismay of their girlfriends, Maxine and Myra. Laura is seated next to her parents as Curtis is at work. However the performance doesn't go as smoothly as Eddie... Written by Anonymous

Swine Lake (#7.17)
31 October 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Eddie needs to take ballet classes and at his performance Myrtle shows up to dance with him

Laura's boyfriend thinks that Harriet is her grandma and Harriet tries to look young.

Well,the ballet dancing was hilarious. The whole new students dance was funny even without Myrtle appearing.

Btw doesn't it seem like they keep on basing episodes on Steve's alter egos? They never appeared that often, now they seem to be in every episode. And I find it unnecessary because they are funny in small amounts then it becomes repetitive. Didn't we have the same conversation of Eddie and Myrtle on how they can be friends if she chills out like several times already?

Another good story about age though. This show is good at breaking the age barriers and challenging ageism.
