Plot[edit | edit source]

It's the morning after the 1988 election, and Alex is (surprisingly) not rubbing in the results with the family. Steven is upset at the size of the electric bill and tries to reduce costs around the house.  Andy finds a new friend in Nick's nephew Rocco (played by Kaylan Romero).  Alex feels left out when Andy doesn't have as much time for him as he used to.

Funny Moments[edit | edit source]

  • Just after Mallory says "Rocco" for the first time, the camera cuts to get Alex and Andy's reaction.  Andy does a weird look offstage
  • Nick says "earring booth" and the family grabs Andy to check his ears
  • Use of the word "emulate"
  • Steven and Alex discuss "those chatty women we live with"

Music[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Because this episode aired so soon after the 1988 election (held on 11/8/88), it is feasible that the intro before the opening credits was filmed after the election (later than the rest of the episode).
  • In this episode, Alex is ready to watch Wall Street Week and Andy's not there.  The reverse happens in "The Other Woman ".
  • Steven reveals that Alex was called "Moonbeam" as a young child.
