"Ooh, this worm is being very disrespectful." --Shekinah

"I don't want the monkey to snatch my face off. I can't ... do ... that." --Tiny

"I'm tired as hell. I'm gonna have an asthma attack, and I don't even have asthma." --Shekinah  

Highlights: What would you put on your bucket list? Well, Shekinah and Tiny think bucket-list-worthy items are fishing, spending time with monkeys and indoor rock climbing. All of which they quit, almost midway. The kids do much better at the boxing ring. All except for Major, who can't seem to get the hang of it and ends up crying because boxing hurts. It's not easy being the son of the rubber-band man.

Chrissy & Mr. Jones (Monday, 9:30 p.m. ET; VH1)

"The collar's real. I could marry you or bury you." --Rev. Run

"I don't have to be here! I don't have to be here! I'm here because I believe that it can get better! Same thing with you, I would hope!" --Chrissy

"I don't know, man. Like the old saying go, if you love something let it go, but I'm not willing to let go." --Jimmy

Highlights: Jimmy decides to take it to the church this week -- or at least the next best thing, Rev. Run's house. He drops some wisdom but it seems to fall on deaf ears, because the next day Chrissy and Jimmy are at each other's throats again. Chrissy asks Jimmy what he took from their meeting with Rev. Run, but she doesn't like the answer. Before we know it, Chrissy is driving away, and Jimmy is in tears. Oh, wow.
