    Don’t be an idiot Val, babysitting isn’t a one way street. You are taking care of your sister’s kids for two week while she goes off to Paris. Do you seriously think Joan wouldn’t watch yours if you asked?

    Evie would help as well, but my experience with girls the age of Holly and Alex is that they really don’t like their mother getting involved seriously with another man even if he is a good guy. They say they don’t mind and they try not to but in the end they aren’t mature enough to imagine a parent in a physical relationship with a new partner. When they are older and finished school they are able to deal with the reality a little better.

    Jersey Shore is located right in the middle of PA. The nearest “shore” is at least 200 miles away.

    That’s the second time Phil has said love, but I don’t recall her saying it.

    Other than the “idiot” part, that was my thought too!

    In the last frame, is Phil asking how many years until Holly and Alix are both gone and will just be Val and ‘Biscuit’ in the house? Or is he asking how many years has he loved Val in a vain hope she will return the love?

    @Flyer Tom Phil said THE Jersey Shore, NOT Jersey Shore. I live in PA and know the difference.

    Why would you say that? She has raised two daughters that are lightly modelled off Holly and Alix.
    Either way, that is just a mean statement based off a CARTOON DRAWING!

    I married my second husband when my girls were 8 and 12. They were over the moon! Absolutely adored him and were thrilled to be part of the wedding, etc. Of course, if they hadn’t liked him – and vice versa – I wouldn’t have dated him. It was a package deal.

    My sister’s dating again, finally. Her daughter is 37 and is not happy that Mom is dating, especially when Mom spends the night with the friend, doesn’t answer her cell phone, doesn’t call and say where she is… “She could be dead in a ditch and we wouldn’t know until the cops show up.” A statement that sent me, my husband, and my nephew into hysterical laughter.
