That's What Friends Are For (#5.19)
22 July 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A very sweet episode. I really liked the story about Eddie and Waldo. Waldo being worried about losing his best friend when Eddie goes to college. It is a common issue at that age, and to be honest whenever there is a major life change in one of the friend's life that would make it harder to see each other. And they made it pretty well, added some home and also made the outcome pretty sweet. Was nice to see how they showed how anyone could make it in some way with their own gift and Eddie being so supportive of his best friend.

Carl's FOF was pretty good as well. I liked how they made Mother Winslow repeat the same term as Steve did to make it look like a common way to call it.And Steve in his kitchen gear was very funny!!!
