'Sibling Revelry' Recap


Bringing Up Bates "Sibling Revelry"
  • Gil decides to teach the new drivers some basic car mechanics. “Bates cars break down a lot,” says Nathan.
  • “I’m pretty sure with everything, my mom and dad teach the first few kids, and then they feel like they’ve taught all of us, but they forget that they have 19,” says Tori.
  • “It was great for all of us to learn some of the things that Dad told us, but really in all reality, we’re going to call Dad if our car breaks down because that’s what he’s there for,” says Carlin, laughing.
  • Later, Erin, Whitney, Tori, Carlin, Josie, and Katie visit the jiu-jitsu instructor to learn self-defense, but they are caught off-guard when he has them warm up with jogging and pushups.
  • They jog across the room, and both Carlin and Whitney fall into the wall at the end. Carlin makes two holes with her knees, on either side of a stud.  
  • “Here we are with this little group of homeschool girls,” laughs Erin. “I mean, it hadn’t been five minutes, and we had already put a hole in the wall.”
  • After the instructor makes sure everyone is okay, he teaches the girls how to block a punch, take someone down, and choke them until they pas out.
  • On another day that week, Zach, Whitney, Erin, and Chad meet at The Cutting Edge Classroom for a cooking class. When the instructor announces that they will be making bruschetta with basil and mozzarella, as well as chicken piccata, Zach jokes that he should have taken an Italian language class before coming. They end up loving the meal. 
  • “It’s always good to remember that no matter the amount of time that’s been by, no matter the hard things that you’ve been through, the good things that you’ve been through, you can always, always enjoy good food,” says Zach, sentimentally.

  1. Thank goodness it was Carlin's knees that made the holes in the wall, and not her head. I was worried that she'd have a concussion after seeing the earlier previews. Still, it must've hurt, ouch!
