I'm going to admit to saying that I'm a huge fan of this show. Mainly because of the gripping story lines and competent acting from everyone, even George Lopez. A comedian who's not a great actor, but when he's asked to show emotion, he does it well. The second season of this show is most remembered for George's hunt for his deadbeat father, Manny Lopez. At the very end of this episode, George meets Manny for the first time. What was, at first, awkward small talk about what's going on in both of their lives turns into a heated argument about why Manny left George and his mother Benny and the way the argument plays out is so heartbreaking and at the end where George punches him in the face and delivers the line "THAT'S for my mother" just makes it all the more sad but fulfilling at the same time to see George get revenge for 35 years of nothing. It's definitely the best moment of the series and what made me fall in love with this show as I was growing up. The entirety of the second season was so excellent as it is, but this episode is a very satisfying ending.
