Step by Step: Future Shock

Rich and Dana (along with JT and Sam) attend a wedding and each fantasize about their future if they got married. Dana imagines herself trapped in a trailer in the backyard of the Foster-Lambert crew and Rich imagines Dana as a high powered attorney with no need for him.

Meanwhile, Jean-Luc and Frank attempt to put together Lilly's new playset. But Frank's cold keeps getting in the way until Jean-Luc proposes a solution.

Episode Quotes
Jean-Luc: (without his French accent) My names Ben, I build things. I got a hard hat, a toolbelt and a tattoo on my butt that says if you can read this I'm probably working.

JT: Hey, ho, take it easy there. We just met so don't give her any ideas, marriage is out of the question.
Sam: Yeah we're not sure we're even gonna keep dating.

Sam: Dana let's go try and catch the bouquet.
Dana: I'd rather french kiss Bob Dole

(Frank and Jean-Luc after drinking some of Mrs. Thompson herbal cold cure)
Frank: I've fallen and I can't get up.
Jean-Luc: You think that's bad? I'm up and can't fall down.

Episode Goofs
In the scene with Rich preparing for Dana's coming home for their anniversary (dream sequence), he's talking to JT on the phone ust as Dana arrives home. But just before he hangs up he says "kisses", talking to JT of course and then hangs up the phone.

In the closing scene, a senile Frank and Carol are lounging on the couch when Carol notes that they've been married for 67 years. But being that both are 82 at the time (mentioned earlier in the episode), there's no possible way they could have been married for that long.
