Speechless!

I never thought one television show can reach across so many barriers at one time!

and yet be so entertaining for everybody that watches. In one episode the main character JJ who has a disability goes to a Halloween party. While his aide is getting him water his friends get him beer and he gets wasted. This illustrates the point that everybody is the same as they are different.
