Warden Bates' Root Beer Addiction

"You know when Warden comes over, you've gotta have ice cream and root beer."
-Whitney Bates''

The Bates all agree that Warden's root beer consumption is over the top. How much does the 13-year-old claim to have inhaled in one day? Find out in this deleted scene from tonight's episode. The show starts at 9pm ET/8pm CT on UP.

  1. Moderation in all things!!! Self-control is surely one of the characteristics the Bates teach, right? I am thankful to the Lord that I am not addicted to anything. Not coffee, not candy, certainly not soft drinks--never drink them, although if I did, Root Beer would be a favorite!

    1. You only live once on Earth. Might as well enjoy it. It's root beer not drugs.

    2. I think you might be addicted to self-praise and pride.

  2. Love root beer floats!

  3. For a long time, I believed that I was not addicted to anything. I always did everything in moderation. Then I realized that I was addicted to "getting it right." It is a dangerous problem because it set me above others "all those other people have their problems, but I don't. I have self-control." I would rather be addicted to root beer and be able to laugh at myself. I applaud the Bates for being real enough to show life as it is: messy, fun, imperfect, room for growth, happy, loving.

  4. My comment was tongue-in-cheek. I almost added it, but I thought people would realize. I know the Bates personally and I especially love Warden. Sorry I stirred so many feathers!!
