After seeing a troupe of Romanian quintuplet acrobats perform at Cirque de Cheville, the boys decide to form a circus troupe of their own. That night, however, the five girls and their grandmother sneak out of the circus and end up at Stan's house hoping to defect to the United States. After the girls' grandmother dies (following a night of heavy romance with Stan's grandfather), the boys convince them to stay in America while the Romanian government pressures the US to send them back. Meanwhile, Kenny tries to become a singer for the circus and ends up traveling to Romania as a musical sensation. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <>

9 November 2008 | by (Canada(Montreal,Quebec)) – See all my reviews

This episode has the boys going with their parents to see something that resembles Cirque Du Soleil.The boys hate it, but are fascinated by the young quintuplets performance.The quintuplets are from Romania, however their grandmother wants them to live in America, so they all escape and stay at Stan's house.The boys are inspired to start their own cirque and even get Kenny to try singing.Kenny does have a great voice and decides to go to Europe for singing lessons.The girls also help the boys with their cirque.The grandmother dies and the Romanian government wants them to be returned to Romania.The boys and protesters are trying to stop them.This episode has very funny moments and is a great episode!
