Phillip Is Being A Brat
6 September 2019 | by Jimmy_the_Gent4See all my reviews

Carol and Chris are going away and leaving a misbehaving Phillip with Maude and Walter.

A funny episode and one of the few that focuses on Phillip. There are some topical jokes on "The Exorcist". Walter wants to spank Phillip and says that "to make a child act like an angel at one end, you have to beat the devil out of him at the other". Funniest scene is when Maude takes Phillip in the kitchen and pretends to beat him. Carol and Chris have their own scene in a diner, interrupted by an obnoxious guy (Phillip Bruns). By the end it appears that Carol and Chris will definitely tie the knot, but this is Chris's final appearance.
