The One With The Nude Painting...
11 October 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this episode. I found it funny, and a good way to spend twenty minutes.

In this episode, Stan is angry, and frustrated, and ends up assaulting a meter-maid. For his punishment, he is sentenced to community service as a meter-maid, which I am sure you will believe when I say that Stan was not happy, at all. But, it does give him the opportunity to provide Francine with the home she's always dreamed for. Because he steals money from the pay machines. Meanwhile, Hayley poses nude for a college art class, and is very surprised to see Roger there. Hayley desperately tries to get the painting from Roger, and it gets very awkward when Klaus, and Steve get involved in the situation.

Newspaper Headline: Paper Mill To Town: "You smell weird."

Overall, I give this episode a 7 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Great.
