Tropes present in this episode:

  • A Day in Her Apron: Mike, in taking on Carol’s role in the kitchen.
  • Swapped Roles: The major chunk of the episode is taken up by Mike trying to help Marcia cook and Carol (ahem) "attempting" to teach the boys baseball. Arguably, Mike isn't THAT bad at his job – cooking subplots with Mike would come at least twice later in the series – but it is his clumsiness and insistence that he has the situation under control that is his downfall. Carol is just plain incompetent as a coach, and Greg, Peter and Bobby don't learn a thing.

How well does it match the trope?
