Episode 35: Hustling the Hustler

Rob is hustled in a pool game by Buddy's black sheep brother.

The episode opens with a very nice, harmonized singing of "On Moonlight Bay" by Rob, Buddy, and Sally.

Another occasion in which the changing value of money is important. Rob loses $300 to Blackie -- about $2,000 in 2011 dollars.

We see the Petrie's basement in this episode. It's a homey-looking room: Pool table, comfortable chair and sofa, card table, eclectic decor. It's surprising that Rob and Laura and their guests don't spend more time here.


  1. At the end of the episode, Buddy says, "The last time I shook hands with this guy was at his confirmation!"

    So if his brother passed the sacrament of confirmation, why did Buddy have his Bar Mitzvah in episode 149?

  2. I don't like being in the basement no matter how nice it is. I like being above ground with lots of windows.
