46. “Uncle Teddy”
(Season 4, Episode 14)
“Uncle Teddy” never goes into full-on parody territory, but it does reference Uncle Buck in title and concept. When Bob and Linda go out of town to a convention, Teddy is left to watch the kids. Tina falls for a delivery boy named Jonas and rebels when Teddy orders her not to see him. This one’s fine, but the show would pull off a much better John Hughes-referencing episode with season five’s “The Runaway Club.”
Best moment: When Louise is too cute.
