Powerful and Emotional Episode
20 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

This episode was the most emotional episode so far of Season 1, and the last few minutes were utterly heartbreaking. Christian must learn to deal with Mrs. Grubman while Matthew has to be fully circumcised for medical reasons only. Nanette Babcock, the patient after whom the episode is named, is truly a tragic person. She seems like a nice young woman who is suffering from weight problems, but there is much more to her than it appears on the surface. I loved the story with Matthew, and he is one of my favorite characters so far. This episode was powerful in so many ways, including the writing, the realistic dialogue between father and son, and especially the acting.
