Monday blog is Raymond blog!
Everybody Loves Raymond season 3 episode 14 called "pants on fire" but I like to call "a mothers love". Why? Cause this seems accurate to how I've seen mothers act to there sons.
In this episode like all the others Marie likes her son Raymond more than her other son Robert. But then she hears Ray (a man in his thirty's) talk about having thrown a party in their house when he was a teenager, suddenly Marie is indifferent to Ray and gives praise and lavish gifts of food to Robert, her new favorite son!
She is not subtle with this and if this is her attempt to make Ray become sorry for his actions it only helps show Robert how much he usually doesn't have his mothers love.
And this saddens me, do punish her one son (Raymond) she ends up showing her other son (Robert) how much she does not usually care for him!
I fell bad for Robert, not having his mothers love most of his life and then getting it solely because his mom is mad at his brother!
What a terrible mother.
But as always things are put back to where they were in the beginning of the show as Robert talking to his mother makes the joke "Imagine if it was my party" to wit Marie assumes it was and that Raymond is only covering for his brother and goes back to loving Raymond and leaving Robert alone to wallow in his bitterness.
Which leaves me wondering is it better to be loved and know its conditional or not to be loved at all?
