Methinks he doth protest too much
maybe that’s some other Michael Patterson (like two dudes from my high school graduating class with the same first name, middle initial, and surname; yearbook committee had to put their full names)
Oh boy. Mike, don’t go home. Hide at Lawrence’s.
And here we go
Way to go Michael, your dad just choked on his coffee!
That spit-take is twice as good as Danny Thomas!
There it is.
How can you tell a good scene reporter? When a reporter starts off a report of angry demonstrators with 4 good lower teeth, but before the interview is over he has only 3 teeth left, but he continues with the interview! Now that’s dedication to your work!
Mike’s gonna be in big trouble
John didn’t recognize his own son on camera??
He had to hear his name before he reacted??
Dr. John Patterson may be a tad upset with his son. But I think that Elly was a protester in her teens and twenty’s before she married John. So she might understand why her son Mike was protesting.
That is not a small amount of liquid being spit out all over the TV and the carpet…
The neighborhood gossip quality just went up a couple of notches. “Hey Marge, that Patterson kid is on the television.” “I thought he was such a nice boy.”
and now the parents know… only time will tell what ill fate happens to him afterwards when this blows over.
Ooh… he is SO grounded for life!
Now dad is paying attention!
As spit takes go…
Good on you Michael, rage against the machine!
Hello fame. You know my name. …“Hi Mom!”
There’s something happening here
But what it is ain’t exactly clear
There’s a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware
I think it’s time we stop
Children, what’s that sound?
Everybody look, what’s going down?
There’s battle lines being drawn
Nobody’s right if everybody’s wrong
Young people speaking their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind
It’s time we stop
Hey, what’s that sound?
What a field day for the heat (Ooh ooh ooh)
A thousand people in the street (Ooh ooh ooh)
Singing songs and they carrying signs (Ooh ooh ooh)
Mostly say, “Hooray for our side” (Ooh ooh ooh)
Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you’re always afraid
Step out of line, the men come and take you away
We better stop
You better stop
Now, what’s that sound?
That reporter could use a “smile pill”.
But with the press on t he scene,the police likely won’t take any serious measures.
Tomorrow—-Farley digs up a large bone,intending to offer it for bail.
Dad better get ready for “the phone call” from Michael…
I hope Ellie and John are thinking of their college days when activities were brewing (Vietnam war, etc.) and now their offspring is doing the very same thing except with a bus fare rise.
Michael hasn’t been arrested yet, so maybe this episode will end well in spite of the foreboding of many of my fellow FBOFW fans.
Reaction I expected.
How is he the spokesperson
That hurl has great potential in the spittoon contests
what is this paying for student bus nonsense? Never heard of it.. darn Canuckians.. ;)
30%?? So did it to go from $.50 to $.65
Wesley D. Bates is going to be ticked off that Michael got his TV time.
Last frame say it all.
