Now for the walk" and when Laura catches him acting like Steve and says afterward: "I'm busted." This episode had his characters Stefan and Steve trading personalities. See more »

Trading Places (#9.8)
12 November 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Stefan is worried that Laura might have feelings for somebody else. Steve admits that it is him. So the two of them trade places so that Stefan can spy on Laura and Steve takes over his modeling job.

Eddie makes a video about his father as a cop. But the day is not as exciting as Eddie hoped for.

I really liked this episode, my favorite in a long time. Enjoyed both stories.

Watching Steve and Stefan trade places was hilarious. Jaleel White is a brilliant actor, and this episode shows it especially. he is not just playing two completely different characters, he even manages to be the half perfected version of each. Beautiful

And the Eddie and Carl story was absolutely sweet.
