Goofs

For all the references made to Sophia not being able to see without her glasses, it's pretty interesting that once she walks out the door and the car outside comes to a screeching halt to avoid hitting her, that she is able to see that it's a Buick. See more »

Bringing Up Baby (#3.3)
18 January 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Rose's uncle dies and leaves her a "baby", after initial confusion they find out that it is not a human baby but a pig Baby. Her uncle loved the pig and to guarantee his well being after his death gives the ones who take care of him $100000 after Baby's death. This is the only thing that makes them want to keep it. Only Baby gets sick and the vet says that it is homesickness, for selfish reasons they tell Rose to keep the pig anyways. But then they feel guilty and send the pig back. And then it dies within a few hours.

Can't say I liked this episode. Pigs are not filthy animals but very smart mammals who are indeed smarter than dogs. I can't like the characters who have so much hate for that pig. Even when they change their mind the well being of the animal never bothers them. And the end seems to show that pigs can't be homesick and that his well being is less important than money. Only Rose was sweet in this episode and the pig was a total cutie.
