The One With The Stolen Bicycle...
15 June 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I enjoy this episode. It's funny and I love how the cast portray their characters. This is one of my all-time favorite episodes from the first season, however, it doesn't make it into my all-time favorites for the entire series.

In this episode, Phil buys a new bicycle for Luke, behind Claire's back, but he ends up lying when it gets stolen. Meanwhile, Jay tries bonding with Manny. Cam and Mitch begin taking Lily to daycare.

Best part of the episode: Phil.

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