    So-so episode for me.

    Luke's quote after falling out of the RV bathroom was the highlight for me :)

    No inter-family scenes that I remember...

    I liked the 3 RV dad's meeting up and discussing their trials.

    That was really the only part I liked, especially as an RV parent.

    It bugs me when they make the narration portions part of the story. By which I mean, instead of commenting on the plot, they are made to be part of the plot. Claire's narration of the RV trip was played as though she was finding out what happened on the trip at the same as we did, which is impossible. Nitpick.

    Anyway -- yes, a pretty average episode. My favorite part came at the very end. Phil is working with Haley on her dance routine while Alex is tutoring Luke nearby. Phil is counting out the dance steps when Alex starts explaining a math concept to Luke. Phil says (something like), "Do you mind? We're doing something important here." The brief look Ariel Winter (Alex) gives the camera was hysterical. A perfectly-played minor beat.

    Riverdale,...
    Lots of reality shows have the person re-create what they were thinking at the time... took this the same way.
