Eight simple rules for dating my teenage daughter episode guide
Meg becomes unexpectedly jealous and hunts desperately for a boyfriend to make Neil jealous; she ends up settling for Jake Tucker, who only wants her to buy him some BB's.
She finally tells Neil that she wants to be his girlfriend and signs the original contract to prove her sincerity; the Goldmans quickly put her to work as a slave, putting on Neil's pajamas and plowing a field in their front yard.
Cate’s father, Jim Egan (James Garner), moves in to help and Cate’s very immature nephew, C. (David Spade), moves in for additional comedy relief. There was initially a great deal of curiosity about how the death of Ritter would impact the show. She asks Rory to do it instead and Kerry, tired of being a “goodie two-shoes,” wants to be part of it. Cate comes home soonafter and she’s not happy about the four-legged houseguest either.
Early in the series, "8 Simple Rules" took this route as well, as the first several episodes were mainly about father Paul Hennessy's (Ritter) efforts to understand his teenaged children's behavior.
As you may recall, Ritter died unexpectedly after completion of the third episode of season two. Rory is planning to take full advantage of Ditch Day while Kerry expects that her classes will continue as usual.
The show’s production was shut down to give the cast and crew time to grieve and also to give the network and producers time to decide if and how they should proceed. Cate is waiting for Ed to call her when Rory comes into her office, depressed.
For instance, he buys eight cases of ipecac so he can hold a vomiting contest with Brian, Chris, and Stewie; although Chris technically wins, all four continue to vomit explosively and violently in a scene lasting 56 seconds. In desperation, Peter seizes upon a picture of Mort's son Neil, who is infatuated with Meg.
Peter offers to sell Meg to the Goldmans to settle the bill, offering a contract; Mort agrees, but everyone is shocked to discover that Neil has started dating another girl named Cecilia.Usually, he'll falter due to his own shortcomings and ends up learning a lesson about himself or his children.
