I just watched this episode tonight. I give it a 7. It seems that's lower than most others rated it, so let me explain. My 9's and 10's are Dream Sequence Always Rings Twice, Atomic Shakespeare, Big Man on Mulberry St. Those not only were quintessential Moonlighting, but are some of my favorite television moments *ever*. My 8's are episodes with great David and Maddie chemistry, things like Witness for the Execution - the ones that kept you hitting rewind to catch the glances, smiles, and innuendos.
I liked FKL alot, but didn't love it as much as other eps. Although Bruce's acting is great, and Eva Marie Saint was fantastic as Cybil's mom and they had great scenes together, I still missed the David/Maddie interaction which was so critical for the show and that's why I gave it a 7.
I really love this board - After watching the episode I read the posts here then watched some parts again. What great analysis and interpretations! And what attention to detail...I rewound several times just to catch the appearing/disappearing celery in the Bloody Mary.

Haha Skywithdiamonds - that celery huh! Wish it would stay put. It is like the shaving cream in Witness! The doorway scene tugs at my heart every time. some of Cybil and Bruces finest acting I think. i watch this episode over and over again just for that scene - and I have always wondered - do you think he really had a black eye? It seems weird that he has one. I wonder if he had been out partying at the weekend and turned up to work with it! (Bruce that is - as well as David haha) xx
This has got to be the best episode of season 4, ok up to this point anyway. After watching the last few episodes this was so refreshing. Of course David's speech on the plane steals the show and actually made me cry this time around. But there were other great moments in this as well. I love the scene with Maddie and her mom in the beginning. When watching this season now (it's been a few years) I can't help but think Mr and Mrs Hayes could have been David and Maddie in the future(with a bit more excitement of course )Maddie is def more like her father and I see David in her mom, ok not the fun David, but at the heart. Being older now I really enjoyed Mr. Hayes talk about parenthood, very touching. The scene with David and Agnes really stood out to me this time. I think this mirrored how we the viewers were feeling at this time. Was there any way back? David also makes comments about the critics saying it was over, no way back or something like that anyway. And Agnes says something about not even Camelot lasting forever. Though I don't agree with Agnes that David is all to blame here. And the end scene talking about Camelot again, "it doesn't have to end not if we don't want it to" or something like that. Now that would have been a better end than lunar. But won't think about that now. This episode ends with hope that things are going to get back on track.
