After Adam and Jackie disagree over their Halloween costumes, Murray teaches Adam to be a shell of a man to keep Jackie happy; however, it backfires quickly also causing an issue for Murray and Beverly. But they soon all learn to compromise in their own special way, in the Halloween and 100th episode of "The Goldbergs".

When Murray is giving Adam relationship advice, Murray says, "It keeps your mom and I chugging along."
Although very commonly heard in modern American English, this form of hypercorrection (mistakenly using "I" when one should use "me" because one believes it sounds correct even though it's incorrect) was almost nonexistent in the 1980s, especially among working-class people like Murray who grew up in Philadelphia in the 1950s and '60s. Hypercorrection using "I" instead of "me" only became common in the US in the 2000s, and the show's writers probably didn't even realize their mistake. See more
