I don't hate this episode, but it's not great great. I hate the chase at the end, it was a little too much, kinda like the chase in BAYAAHP I give it a high 5. I like the end where you think Maddie and David are going off to Paris together. Too bad that never happened.

Dull! I agree. This was a very mediocre and disappointing episode. I don't know what the writers were thinking. Were they thinking? I gave it 1 point for the one or two laughs I had and 2 points for being led to believe that David and Maddie were going away to Paris together. So it's 3 total. Was it common knowledge at this point among the cast and crew that this was ML's last season and so there's a carelessness infecting them?
Does anyone else think that the David and Maddie in this season so far are not the same David and Maddie of the pilot episode? Why does the humor seem to be so forced - like the actors are just joylessly mouthing the lines because they are under contract? I'm not bashing them b/c I like Bruce and Cybill very much in this series but either they are not into this anymore or they are being directed to act this way or it's all the script's fault.
Indeed it is a boring episode and they kinda knew it (the writers): remember the dialogue between Maddie and Agnes after Maddie "grounded" Blue Moon staff? Maddie (or Cybill) kept saying that "the ship is not in the right direction", "everyone is not there or gone", that it wouldn't miss hearing the stories of their clients e.t.c.
Seems that they knew the end was coming - after the change in Sunday nights - but they did nothing about it, just accepted it.
The only funny thing with this episode, was when David touched Maddies "toushy" and the expression on her face afterwards I kinda think that this might not been on script as well, because it came out just right and unexpected (spontaneous?) ;D

I'll give this one a 3 just for the Paris tease. The chase at the end is monumentally stupid and quintessential Season 5 overreaching with the slapstick. Also, loathe the we talked our relationship to death so lets stop talk they have. I think that is this episode. The utter evil of pals with a past is in full force.
Wow gang, you folks really don't like this episode at all. I found it mid pack, maybe a tad less so, but not the total stinkfest some others were.
Like most Season Five episodes, I just didn't remember this one at all. There was absolutely nothing in it that I recalled when I watched it last night, so it is quite possible I never caught it.
I thought the case was somewhat interesting, but nothing to write home about. I winced when the old guy at the home touched Maddie's knee and said he liked women with a bit more meat on them. Cybill was always the more athletic type and not the stick waif that most models are, but that seemed a bit harsh.
The in car moment where D&M decide they talked their relationship to death was also kind of odd. Talking was the foundation their relationship was built on. The talking was what kept them engaged. It was when they STOPPED talking was when the problems began.
Gotta agree that the chase at the end was bizarre and kind of creepy considering that the show was on Sunday family hour. Double entendres are one thing but that final scene in the chase was beyond tacky.

Didn't like this episode before and gave it a 6 on imdb. Upped it to a 7 now. I think it's not that bad, except for the silly chase. Bert is great, the conversation between Dave and Maddie helps us to accept it more that things between them ended. Could have been a lot worse:).
Ok I really don't know what to say about this one, I really didn't remember it at all. It was just not good. Not all bad, but not good either I did find the Maddie and Agnes conversation at the beginning interesting and I do think they were talking about the show here. At least we had some David and Maddie moments on screen together as its coming to an end
