    10. Melcat96 says:

      @irelandsalvo Why do they call her Moose?

    11. ajlee35 says:

      “Divorce” also known as a legal alternative to murder.

    12. Bladerunner93 says:

      @disconnected22 kids today aren’t pussies; if anything, kids back then were. Who do you think are the ones complaining about violence on TV today? The kids back then, who couldn’t handle this stuff.

    13. thenomadishere says:


      Its not that kids are pussies. Its the idiotic “think of the children” mentality of the adults in charge that is the problem.

    14. Doperooni says:

      It’s true but the sad thing is its OUR generation that are raising the little cockgoblins. I think it was the “self esteem” craze of the 90’s. Everyone’s special my ass. Everyone’s an asshole.

    15. taavo420 says:

      @irelandsalvo they called her Moose cause she would use a
      lot of it in her hair

      Thank you SO MUCH for posting!!!! Brought back great memories

    18. daza2j96 says:

      Why was this episode so controversial that it was banned from the U.S.?

    19. DaneYoussef says:

      @irelandsalvo “They always called Christine “Moose,” but I thought she was´╗┐ pretty!”

      It was an oxymoron–as a joke, a juxtaposition. They called her “Moose” ’cause she was so little!

    20. bluestingerborg says:

      Bring this show back and get rid of all that foolishness from today.

    21. Jguy27 says:

    24. campbellka says:

      I think we coddle too much. Kids are much smarter than we give them credit for and can take it.
