    Some really great stuff this episode.

    My favorite was:

    Claire: "Here comes Phil and the Butterball."
    Manny: "I have a name!

    This was a riot! It is even something I can see my family doing.

    "Dasher, Dancer, Prancer and.....Vixen. Well that worked out well". With Cameron as Prancer and Gloria as Vixen.

    They paired everyone up nicely. Different interactions then we have seen and it worked well.

    Claire and Hayley at the Target - "you have been training all your life for this..."

    Oh yes, great episode!

    This ep was hilarious. We just recently began watching MF and just LOVE it. Hoping they are LOTS of reruns in the future....

    They need to tone him down a little. He is getting a little overbearing.

    Pretty good episode..not their best but still some funny stuff.

    The sure are getting heavy handed with the whole product placement stuff though....sheesh, could they scream any louder "SHOP AT TARGET!!!!" or "DRIVE THIS TOYOTA MINI VAN!!"

    "Every time you say 'look', I think you're saying 'Luke'."

    "I don't hear a difference."

    "One is my name."

    "Juan is not your name."

    I noticed Target of course but not the Toyota. I guess I don't pay attention to what vehicles characters drive in shows.

    This one was pretty good, I'd give it a B.

    While I noticed target, am I really the only one NOT bothered by it?

    product placement doesn't bother me when it fits into the story line, some shows, like bones or chuck, have unnatural dialog to work the product in

    it's not like they said, "let's go to target, with convenient locations everywhere and the best deals around this holiday season", instead, they said something like, "we can do all our shopping at target," which made sense with the story

    I agree. If it's natural, I have no problem with it. If it's forced -- whether verbal or visual -- I don't like it. I had no problem with the placement in MF. But I other shows, like the CW shows, where they say "Let's Bing it!" and then they show an awkwardly long screenshot of the phone....that stands out as unnatural to me, and I don't like it.

    We thought this episode was great. Haley was great in Target: (1) try boobs; (2) gay! boobs won't work; (3) mimic employee. Very well done.

    It didn't bother me at all. In fact, I don't think I even thought of it. Target seemed like the right place to go for a multi family shopping spree. Maybe not the place for the best quality gifts, but this was Christmas Express. :)

    Or on Project Runway when they talk about the tablets or phones they have. Or on Top Chef when they say "we are driving in our XXXX (whatever the car is) on our way to the Alamo".

    I didn't notice that at all. Then again, she was next to a bikini-clad Hayley, so that might have something to do with it. :)

    I didn't think the Target thing was overdone at all. So they said they were going shopping at Target, and we saw shopping at Target. How is that overdoing it?

    I'd rather them go to a real store like Target, than make up some fake store and call it something like "Bullseye". *cough* Buy More *cough*


    I laughed pretty hard at the beginning when Claire and Mitchel were bickering about birthdays and calendar dates, and Haley interrupted with "Hey, Math Club, can I have some more lemonade?"
