show me that smile again

i remember once on growing pains, mikey seav was hitting on girl. the girl was someone he had previously made fun of a lot, who then had a makeover before returning back to school. through tv magic, the kirk had no idea who she was at all. ex-brace-face was playing along and giving into his boyish charms, then told him who she was and dropped the hammer. kirk cam was shocked.

Seaver: Well... uh, Wow! Looks like you had a great summer.
Makeover Story: Yeah. And it looks like you just had a great fall.
(walks away, never to be seen again)

this is something that goes through my head for no reason, a lot.
a lot.

anyway, i'm looking forward to fall.
let's get some motherfuckin' fall foliage up in here.

Mike's best friend was named "Boner," because his real (on the show) last name was "Stabone." His dad's name was Sylvester Stabone. Mike went to a party where there were people doing cocaine, which got one of those pre-show "This parental advisory is here to signal how lame this episode will be" warnings. Mike was a screwup in high school, but then inexplicably (within the context of the show) became a drama buff upon (barely) graduating, totally changing the show for the worse. I think the real-life backstory was that that was the point at which Cameron got religion, and he made all of these demands about his character before coming back to work, which, even though he's still a member of the God Squad, he subsequently regretted and said was totally mishandled by him. And Alan Thicke sang the theme song. Really. You can look it up.

That's what I remember about that show.

Ok, I just did look it up, and I was totally wrong. B. J. Thomas sang the theme song. I must have been thinking of "Thicke of the Night." He was a singer, you know!

Alan Thicke and his then-wife Gloria Loring were responsible for WRITING many great 80's sitcom theme songs, including "The Facts of Life" and "Diff'rent Strokes."

Also, I'm a Christian and I can't stand Kirk Cameron. His debate on Nightline versus the Rational Response Squad was a travesty.
