Background Story Worth Waiting For
28 January 2019 | by chauge-73253See all my reviews

Frank is arguing with Laverne again. This time it is not one of his irrational, overprotective rants. He has good reason to be hurt and disappointed in her. It seems that Laverne's dead mother has a birthday coming up and Frank wants to visit her grave with his daughter. There's one big problem. Laverne has never gone there since she died when Laverne was a child. The episode takes a break from the usual pratfalls and goofy jokes, and has an honest discussion about the death of a parent. Michael McKean (showing the underrated job he does as Lenny) has a nice little scene where he reveals to Laverne how his own mother left him on his birthday. This is one of their best episodes because it shows the audience that the cast is more than just joke machines and acrobats, but above average actors.
