"The show was finishing season 1 to focus on Riley's alcoholism and promiscuity, his failed marriage, his relationship with his daughter. Not easy stuff for any sitcom. This episode has turned into confident writing, keeping so many balls in the air, even with the added - though kept in the background - issues of the refugee camp. Al has the best line in the episode as he begs Riley to quit the repo job, "I worry about my mother, my father, my sister. My heart isn't big enough to worry about you too." Reminiscent of the best of ROSEANNE, it turns out USofAl is balancing serious issues in a sitcom setting just fine."
