    I hope the weekend with Jack helps Toby get back into his family. He seems to have checked out on them. I'd kill my SO if he looked at his phone all the time while we were talking the way Toby is constantly looking at his phone when talking with Kate.

    Agree. I wonder if there's going to be a "trouble at work" sub-plot? The classic "job is in jeopardy but didn't tell spouse because I didn't want to worry them."

    The neighbor sub-plot is interesting. They kind of hung a hat on it with Rebecca mistaking the phone call as being with Toby. I wonder if they're going to go full "emotional affair"?

    So I know everyone is thinking a weekend with Jack is good for Toby cause he is stepping up. Anyone else getting an idea that he will be taking Jack to a doctor to run some test like what he was researching on the computer? I hope not but I guess i am looking for a twist, doubt it but would ramp up the tensions if so.

    Oh. The horror. The thought of a dad looking for any way to help his son. If he helps raise his son but at the same time is honest about how he feels and tries to do what he can to make it better, why is he doing anything bad? He may need to be told by an authority that something won’t work. Not just his wife. Big deal.

    Oh I 100% agree, but it wont play well with Kate if that happens just for fact he isn't being open with her. Love the show for the interesting twist they always bring.

    My suspension of disbelief can only go so far... Taking a kid to a specialist, on the weekend, with no prior appointment? If that happens, I want their insurance...

    I won't be mad if he does, but it would be totally unrealistic and I don't think it's what he has planned. I think he just realizes he needs some one-on-one time to bond with his kid. Kate has been the primary caregiver for ten months and he needs to believe he can do it on his own.

    I'm annoyed with Kate too, though: surprising Toby with that trip was ridiculous. Most people cannot take off work at the drop of the hat barring an actual emergency. She put him in a lousy situation.

    Maybe Toby called Kevin who called John Legend who pulled strings to get him into the Mayo Clinic.

    I agree, Toby is my favorite character in the show. Always upbeat and happy and makes it a point to make others happy. You can see he is struggling with this and it pulls my heart strings for him.

    Did Kate surprise him last minute? I may have misunderstood, but I thought they were talking about the trip for a while. Then at the last minute she ditched him for Rebecca because it was obvious he didn't want to go? I think she didn't want another fiasco like the music camp thing where he was dragging his heels and made them late.

    My favorite parts of this show are Randall and Beth. Not enough Beth lately.

    Beth and Toby are my favorite characters for the same reasons.

    Beth is like “yeah, yeah, it is so sad but snap out of it, Babe”. Toby, is like “look closer, Babe, life is good”.

    Both have been in a funk from time to time and it annoys me. It is time for Toby to get out of his.

    I did a few Nonograms during the bedtime story.

    See I told you Toby will get Jack checked out :p, though not to extent I was thinking haha. But it was touching to see Toby trying to connect before the incident. Than after the incident a light bulb went on or something and you can see that he is starting to slowly make a connection with baby Jack.

    It wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be, thankfully.

    I hope that's the end of Marc. As bad as the emotional abuse was, I was really expecting much worse including physical abuse. Glad I was wrong.

    It's looking like Madison is the mother of Kevin's son.

    So cool that Kevin built Jack's dream house.

    I don't think we know yet why they are mad at Randall on the 40th b-day at the cabin. It looks like they left on speaking terms after digging up the time capsule so something else must happen.

    OMG, that tape from Jack was amazing. This show is amazing. Wow.
