A Family Affair
If, when I grow up, I decide to have children, I really hope that they inherit my more stellar attributes (keen sense of style and awesome memory, for example) and not my, um, less fortunate characteristics (ginormous head, zero hand-eye coordination and distressing fondness of terms like "Holy cannoli").
I can only imagine that Liz had a similar crisis when she was pregnant with her boys. Would they inherit her flawless skin and stunning hair? Or would they get the lameness gene that floats around the Webber family, that Liz was lucky enough to avoid but which has her sister Sarah in a death grip?
Thankfully for Liz, Cam, Jake and the audience at home, the boys seem to have inherited her most AWESOME attributes, chief among them adorability and the best facial expressions this side of Drunk Sam. Following in the footsteps of Liz's great sneer/raised eyebrow combo and Cam's historic "Bitch, please", Jake has given us some brilliant facial expressions, none more brilliant than this, courtesy of Cheap 21 of Second Chances via longtime reader Beth R.
That baby is aching to administer a smackdown! In this specific instance, Sam was on the losing end of his glare (with good reason, since she allowed him to be babynapped and scared his brother with hired thugs), but I can see this being a very versatile "Come again?!" look.
It makes me marvel at the power of Liz's greatness, because there's no way Jake got that particular kind of awesomeness from either of his daddies, depending on where you fall in the nature vs. nurture debate. As Becca noted, it's bizarre that Jason could father a child with such masterful facial expressions and Lucky's facial expressions run the gamut from a to...long a. This is totally Exhibit A in my "Why Liz Rules, Even When She's Annoying The Hell Out of Me" case (Exhibit B is her hair and Exhibit C is her handbag collection. Maybe I need to become a nurse with financial problems to get such cute purses...).
