    a pair of twins (Ella and Jaden Hiller) played Lily in the first two seasons. The reason they were replaced was, (according to producers) that the twins didn't really like acting much and didn't want to continue. So, they replaced her with Aubrey Anderson-Emmons beginning with the third season, and decided to make the role a speaking part.

    That's really sad -- and bizarre timing given that she was probably more of a focal point in this week's episode than she had ever been before -- but it also serves as a very fitting sendoff for the character.

    I bet they put a title card on the next new episode as a dedication.

    That is a cool graphic...but the show itself hasn't made me feel that much this season.

    With the exception of the Christmas episode in which it was suggested that the family might split up geographically (which hasn't been touched upon since), the whole season has felt like "business as usual" to me. It's not that it's bad, but it doesn't have any sort of extra emotional heft because if they are planning a final arc, it doesn't seem like it's really kicked in yet. And the show ends in April, so there aren't all that many episodes left.

    Looks like the Paris episode is next week. If it's half as funny as Australia, I'll be happy. That one is one of their classics.
