I do love it…but…

Jennifer is great, David is mostly great. But David. Calm down. You were the dad not a main character. Stop going on you!!! You’re ruining the episode, we get it. Your dad is famous (ur not him!! chill) you directed an episode. Stop it now😳 this isn’t the David DeLuise show with guest star Jennifer. Your so rude!
