There's Enough Smoke in This Greenhouse to Give the PLANTS cancer!

The Hart's give Max an expensive, exclusive cigar that turns out to kill people, and the whole episode is a mad race to find Max before he smokes it. BLOOPER ALERT --> About nine minutes in, the "Milton Charles" character goes to shake Jonathan's hand, but RJ doesn't remember that direction and misses it; then he makes good immediately thereafter. Some nice backstory with Max & Jonathan. He made Jonathan his first omelet, took out his first bank account for him, and took him to his first ballet. And RJ does a nice impression of Lionel's Max, too. When they think Max is dead, their devastation is pretty well-played. So many interesting observations going on here. Like: * Ah, the days when a fill-up would cost you $15.40.

* Some strange lingering closeups of Jennifer for no real reason.

* Max is such a loved member of the family. Then why do they have to rent him such an old, beat-up car? And, in fact, why would he not just buy himself a car? They've gotta be paying him enough. Strange little detail that takes nothing to deal with; it's just odd.

* I know it was the early '80's, seat belts were more of a suggestion and not a brain-splat-prevention device; but, if ever there was a time for seatbelts, this one was it.

Max stumbles away from the poker table, clearly altered. So, that's right, give the car to the drunk guy.

At least Max debuted a new apron today. Serious pair of lips.
