Jack maintains that their daughter takes after his grandmother, who was “big boned,” but Rebecca says they’ve got to get Kate to be more active. When Kate wants to stop playing football with her brothers and her dad, Jack stalls her by saying that she’s eaten a lot of sweets that week, and a little exercise will do her good.His comments are well-intentioned yet super hurtful, and Kate’s face as she stomps off damn near kills me.To be fair, Jack But the getaway isn’t as idyllic as Papa Pearson might’ve hoped.First off, Rebecca is worried about Kate’s weight, and she puts the kibosh on Jack’s daily daddy-daughter trips to the local ice cream parlor.People must have loved this show because it went on for six a cruel, cruel dating show where existing couples were matched up with new people and sent out on separate dates. This horrible TV show pretty much had parents who hated their child’s partner choose new prospects for their child to go out with.After their dates they’d discussed their relationship and their dates.

(But more on that in a minute.) During a storm that evening, Kevin wakes up and happens to find Randall’s glasses under the bed, where his brother lost them. When Rebecca rouses and notices her son resting on the hardwood, she climbs out of bed, spoons up behind him and goes back to sleep.
They were terrible, terrible tragedies yet your eyes refused to look away. People loved it and because of that it went on for five seasons.

After a date that sucked terribly, a little person dressed like a devil would come running out with a pitchfork and would shout out some equivalent to “you just got Punk’d”.
