Sam finding out just how hard it is to be a working mom!! Man, with all the problems I've personally had lately, it has a whole new truth to it as well!! heheheh

I thought the abduction scene was well done. And of course, it's pure cannon for it brings in Sam's martial arts background... I just wish they would have thought of it in the first season when he was the "Boxer"...

This was very good. This is where you learn about Sam's knowledge of martial arts and you also find out that children under the age of 5 can see Sam and Al. Great sequel in the virtual seasons.

Excellent episode, my favourite one with Al in, loved it when he sings to Teresa (later found out is the producers daughter called Troian!) no wonder Dean Stockwell likes the girl, shows through his acting - totally believable. love the song

Me too - it's so cute, but what I like most about that scene is how it's almost exactly like the scene from Anchors Aweigh, when Dean was the little kid and Frank Sinatra was the one singing him to sleep. I just thought it was nice to see it come full circle.

I absolutely love this episode. My favorite scenes are with Al and Teresa, they are just so precious. Al's off-key singing of 'Inchworm' is probably one of the absolute best moments in the show. It's hard to believe that the girl who played Teresa is now a grown up. That episode is most definitely a gem.

My fave bit is

Teresa "What's 'Surcular Intercourse?'" (she was trying to say sexual)
Al "It's a game grown ups play"

That always cracks me up!!!! lol!!!

I adore this episode, not least because the kids are approximately similar ages to my own three kids. As a former Girl Scout leader, I love the line when Kevin looks at the knocked out bad guys and says, "Mom! HOW?" and Sam says, "Girl Scouts."

As the mom of a teenage son, I LOVED LOVED LOVED Sam's speech about virginity. "It doesn't matter if you're male or female. And there's no special time it has to happen. But there does have to be a special reason - when you love someone so much that making love with them is the most natural way of expressing it." Perfection.

Another great episode. The kids had a lot of fun dialogue and made the most of it. Just a good story all around.

The first episode of QL with Ziggy interduction in the series...to bad it took them 22 episode to come with it.
Anywway... Sam as a mom was quite entertaining,and i really liked Troian Bellisario role as Teresa,but...I found the story itself a bit below good. Not something unforgetable(Not even close,actuelly) like "The Color of Truth","Man of la mancha", "Good night dear heart","last dance before an execution", "MIA","Mirror Image" and a few more.

As my kids get older, I like this one more and more. My favorite bit is Teresa's delivery of the line: "That'snotMommythat'saman." Just the way she says it cracks me up. And the dialogue among the three kids is very believable.

It's a little painful to watch the practical joke scene, because the son is so humiliated. I guess it's done well, since I want to reach through the screen and slap all of his "friends."

That's the first time I've heard this. I'll have to watch that movie someday, if only for that scene! Thanks for the info.

I love how she says:
"thats not my mommy thats a man, and so's the guy in the yukky shirt"
Al: hey this is my favorite shirt this is cutting edge stuff!
Teresa: It's yukky!

and Al looks at her like "Hey!"
I am laughing just typing this.

I also love when Al is in the back of the van with a tied up Kevin and one of the dudes crawls back there and towards Kevin and Al responds with:
"You lay one hand on this kid you slimeball and I'll Kill yah, I don't know how, but I'll kill yah."

It's a looooong movie... but little Dean steals the show. It was his first film, at age 8. It also includes the classic scene of Gene Kelly dancing with animated Jerry Mouse, which was state-of-the-art special effects for the time.

Anyway, Another Mother is one of my favorites. Just a lot of fun, yucky shirt and all.

This is a good episode, I particularly like how Sam and Al take on the "Mum and Dad" roles, squabbling like an old married couple haha. And it makes you realise just how good a dad Al would have been if he'd had the chance. But as someone said, I only voted good because this episode is somewhat forgettable as opposed to some others.

this episode made me laugh, be on edge and even jump for joy when sam beat upthe bad dudes, a good quote was:

Kid: If i have a Mum like that I'd still be a virgin
Al: you still are a virgin pimple face and you're gonna stay one until 6 years time

I also love this episode and the begining with Tersea is so precious. She is a gem. I love the way that Sam spoke to the young man about losing his virginity and sex. It was senere and filled with wisdom.
Sam really cared. I also felt Al's compassion for the young boy as those two kidnappers took him. He had a look of don't hurt his boy or your're gone. It was the way any parent or person who loves children would feel if someone was trying to hurt their own.
This one is up there with another gem of an episode. bravo.

Whether Teresa would be able to see Sam and Al would depend on how old she is when they return.

You know I really loved this ep, but didn't really see the similarities between me and her until now, separated, 3 kids, 2 oldies and the 'what the hell was I thinking' baby. There is just so much on my plate right now, I was talking to the lady in the movie library today and she said (and I'm getting sick of hearing it) I dont' know how you do it, well today I didn't know how I did it and I just bawled!! She let me take out a DVD for free! Awwwww!!

I thought that this episode was great. There were many great scenes. I LOVED the last scene with Sam and Kevin at the breakfast table. I thought it was most inspiring. I also loved Teresa; she is such a sweetheart. And Al's affection for Teresa was just so touching. Overall a wonderful show.

I've always wondered how Ziggy could possibly know this. After all, she only gets information that's recorded in databases. Did this kid take out a newspaper article or something when he finally did lose his virginity? Hahaha
