**Uh, they're reenacting it because that's the group Frank was involved with - the group reenacts numerous battles from different wars. They never said it was the anniversary of the battle or that it took place in Long Island; they said it was the anniversary of their first reenactment of it.

* In "Good Girls", it's revealed that Robert was born earlier than he thought, due to being conceived from before Frank and Marie got married. But are we really expected to believe Robert never saw his birth certificate, which would ''have'' to say something different?

** RuleOfFunny, but I always wondered why they didn't just keep his birthday the same and lie about when they got married, which would have been a much easier date to fake. I guess that wouldn't have been as embarrassing for Robert, therefore not as funny.

** Ray Romano was at least aware of this, if Ray Barone wasn't. In an HBO comedy showcase after ''EverybodyLovesRaymond'' was off the air, he said something like "You have no idea how many times on the show I wanted to say 'Shut the fuck up, Debra!'"

** That assumes they don't show up early - or that they stay away from the house long enough to allow everyone to set up.

**** You would really hate ''BringingUpFather'' then -- the ''entire comic strip'' is about the hilarity of a large woman beating up her short, drunken husband. In this show, the wimpy, obnoxious sarcastic Raymond is frequently insulted by his short, angry wife, who (on may two or three occasions) has smacked him or shoved him. It's comedy.

** Forget cheering, the script wouldn't have made it to the first read-through.



* This is a bit petty, but it nags at me every time I watch the episode. Did anyone else find it strange in "Anniversary" that Ray and Debra took Frank and Marie to brunch before the anniversary party? I mean, usually brunches in America serve huge amounts of food, and it's usually a meal that satisfies you for most of the day. I just always found it a strange idea to go out and get a big meal and then come back to a party for another one. Wouldn't it have made a hell of a lot more sense to have the affair at Ray and Debra's house and invite them over for a certain time?

*** I actually agree with the original poster. ELR is a great show and Robert's a good character, but his constant jealousy of Raymond is arguably one of the show's biggest flaws, because it doesn't make any sense when you analyse it. The problem is this: We're meant to feel sympathy for Robert and hope that he succeeds in life, but he rarely does anything to deserve our sympathy. Whenever Raymond experiences any kind of misfortune, Robert always has to mock Raymond with his menacing laughter and sometimes really hurtful comments, but he's also supposed to be the wise character, the voice of reason. It's really jarring to one minute appreciate any advice Robert lends to the family and then experience how bitter he becomes when something good happens to Raymond in the very same episode. The fact that Robert is such a moral character (he's a police officer, after all) and yet is often incapable of rising above his jealousy as a mature person should, is contradictory. In one episode, he tells the story of how his monkey toy was passed down to newborn Raymond. As a child, this must have been pretty distressing for him, but at his age and in his police profession (which requires an immense amount of knowledge and maturity), this should no longer be one of his concerns, but he deliberately makes it one by dwelling upon it. So, how can we feel sorry for Robert when he brings a majority of his misfortunes on himself by being jealous, bitter, overly sensitive/immature and sometimes downright mean?

**On the other hand some desserts, like English trifle, do not require cooking and incorporate a fair amount of alcohol. Some Italian tiramisu desserts require a good hard whack of amaretto - similarly this is not cooked, but set. A cold-set rum and raisin cheesecake requires lots of raisins pre-soaked in Jamaica rum... People have registered as too drunk to drive just by having second helpings of dessert!

**she was sitting, apparently drunk, in the driver's seat. In the UK this is sufficient reason to breathalyse the driver even if the car is stationary with the engine off. Also in the USA?
