Fran has been the type of person who has always survived on her correct instincts. Much to her dismay, those instincts seem to be failing her of late. First, she secretly reads and sends to several publishers a manuscript of Maxwell's first novel, which he wanted no one - let alone publishers - to read. They all reject it, using such strong words as "hate". And second, Fran thinks that Brighton should have career goals rather than rely on living on his trust fund. She thinks he should strive to be a director, with his first job being to film Sylvia's cousin Susan's baby's bris using his new video camera. Brighton agrees, but faints before the taping as he had no idea what a bris was before agreeing to do it. This has placed Fran and Sylvia in the bad books of the rest of the Fine family. But Fran feels she's back on track when she submits what footage Brighton filmed to "America's Wackiest Home Videos", the footage which is accepted. With free tickets in hand, the Sheffields plus Fran... Written by Huggo

Child Abuse covered up by Comedy !
28 September 2010 | by (Las Vegas,NV USA) – See all my reviews

There is no reason they should have made this episode it promotes child abuse ! I am PRO-CHOICE for the one being cut to make the choice. There is nothing sicker than trying to cover up child abuse with BAD comedy

Once Brighton finds out what abuse is about to take place he does what any reasonably sane man does faint ! He should have walked out or at lease grab a knife and give it to that old sick "man" in the chest. I cant even believe these sick perverts are all around to watch a baby getting cut up ! "There is no take two in this" Yes there is ! take Two, circumcisions of all those old bags necks ! Talk about "extra" skin ! they would have enough skin from Silvia alone ! They need to stop it or give females "EQUAL RIGHTS" by cutting them up ! Welcome to the world now report to the nearest butcher !
