See, the problem here is that, after the cabbage rolls, Deanna's mom wants to be with her and the kids, while Deanna's dad wants to watch TV with Mike.
THE HELL? Why can't they all be together? What kind of 1950s life is this, where the wimmenfolks are stuck taking care of the kids (after making dinner and, no doubt, cleaning up) while the men get to sit back and enjoy them some teevee? Mike has, as always, no motive or desire to spend time with his kids and wife, yet this all turns into some screed about he is done wrong by? Oh, the torture of watching Canadian television!
