Private Practice recap: episode 7

Back at Oceanside, fat, irresponsible dad Patrick comes into Ashley's birthing room, psyched about having "another little dude." But he walks right into an intervention… Violet calmly summarizes, "Ashley needs you to do more parenting." See, this is where a Supernanny crossover would really pay off. Naomi channels some of that no-nonsense Jo Frost spirit and tells Ashley, "You know, you need to grow up, too." Ashley's stunned: "What did I do?" Naomi tells her she made the decision to "populate," and she knew she could end up with another boy. She makes me laugh out loud by concluding, "You get what you get and you don't get upset," which is exactly what the teachers at my nephew's preschool say when they're passing out cups at snack time. You know, I think my four-year-old nephew might be moonlighting as a writer for this show. It would explain a lot.
Also referenced in this week’s recap: The Baby-Sitters Club, Reno 911, Roseanne, Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and the Duggar family. Because sometimes you have to make your own fun.
