Hilarious episode!
17 July 2020 | by dpepper73See all my reviews

This is definitely one of the funniest episodes of Everybody Loves Raymond that I've ever seen! After Ray's faux pas becomes known to the rest of the cast, the writing becomes 100% spotless and 110% perfectly funny! The cast was spot on that day! I don't know how else to describe it except to say that once the classic Barone dysfunction began, so did my laughter! And I mean true gut-busting laughs!! Guest actor Joel McKinnon Miller does a great job as the unwitting spectator of the Barone's abnormal family life. His character plays a custodian. To anyone who might find this episode "awkward" because none of the characters have a problem with that occupation, you're missing the point. There's nothing wrong with being a custodian or any occupation where one makes an honest living. Maybe it would've been less "awkward" if the cast had talked the guy into quitting his perfectly honorable job and into settling for unemployment checks.
