    Don't get me wrong - I liked the series, but I do hate it when American writers fail to do their research and start casting Spanish-speakers as Brazilians, or making Spanish language jokes trying to pass it off as Brazilian. Ruicoco? Are you seriously expecting me to believe that THIS is a Brazilian name? First of all, we DON'T speak Spanish in Brazil, we speak Portuguese, so the name wouldn't be pronounced "RRRRRuicoco", it would be pronounced "HOOOeycoco", if it were a Brazilian surname, which it ISN'T. The music wasn't samba, it was salsa, which is as foreign to us here as French music is to Americans. The episode has the valuable lessons on jealousy and doing the right thing, but the horrible stereotypes, none of which are accurate, far outweigh the potential good side of the episode. As much as I enjoyed "My Wife and Kids", this episode was by far the worst they did.
