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.
