Abby's family is having dinner at Elmo's house. They find out that even though their families do things differently, everybody had fun working together to get dinner ready.

Meh. It was kinda nice hearing "One of These Things" again, though.

The geography of Elmo's apartment is really confusing. There's no back window of the ground level of 123, so how can they see out to Abby's garden?

Anywho, looking forward to next week's since it stars Bert and Ernie. But, given how the way the show's been going, I don't know if I'll enjoy it. Frankly, I think they should / could go back to the "street scenes interrupted by segments" format, which would work fine for a half-hour.

It's like I pointed out before, there's no way the position of Elmo's bedroom door out into the hall makes sense, because that would mean that the hall would somehow be out in the arbor.

Does David Rudman perform Freddy? He sounds like Cookie Monster if Cookie Monster could speak in complete sentences.

Other than all that, I will agree that this was pretty much a "meh" episode: other than the musical number about families (which was fairly catchy), nothing really stood out spectacularly about this episode.

Yeah, David Rudman performs Freddy (though Marty performed him in the ending scene for some reason).

This street story was okay. The Family song was catchy. I didn't expect them to bring back One of These Things.

Well, the geography for Ernie and Bert's apartment is also confusing.
