27 Iconic TV Episodes That Totally Nail Real-Life Parenting
Fresh Off the Boat (Season 2, episode 20) Hi, My Name Isâ€¦
When the family toaster breaks, the family takes youngest son Evan to the bank. If he opens a bank account, they get a free toaster. But as he goes to sign the paperwork, he faces a major dilemma, what name to use. He spends the rest of the episode deliberating over using his American name or his Chinese name. Parents Louis and Jessica donâ€™t actually help at all, hilariously recalling how they each chose their American names. And then they reveal that the name Evan doesnâ€™t really hold any significance, it was the name of the nurse helping to deliver him. In the end, Grandma Huang comes through, telling Evan that names donâ€™t make you, you make your name. Itâ€™s one of the best episodes because it shows that parenting is hard, no matter your culture.
