I am laughing way, way too hard to even answer...

And laughing even harder when I think of why my huband came dashing into the room last night (it was a response to me shouting "Gamma! Gamma's back!!!!)

Thanks for this--I needed a good giggle today.

1. C -- the puke basin 2. C -- growing boys need their milk!! 3. D -- "Ow! Quit slapping me on the back, goddamnit!" 4. D -- the chip, definatley removed that (and not just from Carter) 5. D -- saucepan lids all the way 6. D -- the *jazz* club 7. C -- ...because they love to forget about characters, even if they are still relevant (Doug to Carol, Lucy to Carter). 8. A & B -- FINALLY, the girls!! Gamma's back, too. :-)

ROTFLMAO! I'm so glad I wasn't the only one who noticed how many people slapped Carter on the back. Poor little guy...

"The jazz club?!!" LOL!!!

-- Chris A. (, March 24, 2000.

Kathy, this is hilarious!! I love it. Here are my answers: B. The milk was uh... you know, B. She doesn't like Dave, D. Quit slapping me, B. removed the chip, D. Saucepan lids, D. the Jazz Club, B. Lucy who?, and A. GAMMA!!!

It was nice to see Carter and Gamma getting along better with each other now. Also, I didn't really think it was gross that Dave was eating the cereal out of a vomit pan. I'm sure it wasn't used, and in a hospital, they probably have plenty of extra ones that are fresh!

"Quit slapping me on my back goddamnit!" That's great, don't people realize that A) he's in pain back there B) People coming up behind him and slapping him on the back is not the greatest way to approach a back stabbing victim. All are very funny.
