    But if they had shown a shot of Jay watching Married with Children on tv and then having Gloria lean over to turn "that stupid show" off....it would have been meta.

    Or Manny watching it and wondering about it and Jay turning it off....

    Or better yet, just have Jay stick his hands in his waistband and sit down on the couch to watch TV, while Gloria does something that Peggy typically did. That would be metasubtle.

    I think you just wanted an excuse to use the word penultimate correctly. :up:

    But then, to keep it consistent, instead of the last episode being the Encore, it was the ultimate episode being the Encore.

    Sofia's accent is so much fun. Just in this episode, I crack up at "Lily, what are you doing here?" and have replayed it several times.

    I think you folks might be reading too much into the step thing (I know, unpossible). :p

    My take, he finally fixed the loose step and now another step is loose. I know that's the way things work around my house.

    When I was a kid the next door neighbor had an accent almost exactly like Gloria. She wasn't near as hot, unfortunately, but she still made my dad's heart flutter every time she'd say, "Ohhhh, Ernestooooo", hehehe. I can still see his dark skin go red. :)

    It looks like their going to be less creepy next season. I've read their looking to recast them for next season.
