Storyline

Earl wants to make up for ruining Mother's Day so many times. Unfortunately, he and his dad don't get along. At all. Earl decides to ignore this and, with Randy, give his mother the best Mother's Day ever. However, his mother asks him to do something for his father, and because he wants to please his mother, Earl feels he has to do this. Together with Randy, he decides to get back his dad's Mustang he once lost in a race. When Earl tells his dad (whom he'd always told he'd driven the car in a lake) about his plan, his dad tells him the car was meant for him. This places Earl in an awkward predicament: He himself is now a person that needs to be crossed off his list! Written by Marco van Hoof <k_luifje7@hotmail.com>

Good Episode.
23 March 2006 | by (Kalamazoo, Mi) – See all my reviews

Earl and Randy lose their father's Mustang in a race with a grown up, when they are only 10 years old. So Earl puts his father on the list, and gets his Mustang back from the guy he loses it to! Then his father lets him know that he actually got the car for him, so he really loses his own car. Which then give him and his father a chance to get close. When Earl goes back to the guy to ask for his father's car back, the guy challenges him to a race again. The guy is bald headed, ugly, and still lies that he has had sex with four girls in 40 years. He races the Mustang against Ealr's El Camino, they both run out of gas in the quarter mile. So their brother's push them across the finish line, and Earl wins. Pretty good episode.
