I liked this episode much better the more recent time I watched it. As someone who works outside of the home and is raising a family, I really appreciated the approach this episode took regarding the dilemma women face. The upshot wasn't "oh, if you're a liberated woman, you have to reject home-and-values and go get a job to be worth something," but rather the point was that we all get to choose, and that choice has to be respected. Not many TV shows, especially in the early to mid-90s, took that point of view. It's not one of the episodes everyone remembers when they think of QL, but it's extremely well done all the same.

The kiss at the end is priceless - but I always get a kick out of the fact that Sam is wearing an engagement ring along with his wedding band. It looks so odd on his hand when he's driving.
School's out! Remember, behind every loose ball there is a running child.
