parents' decision? Why or why not? What do you think about this decision?

Any person born like Nick might have the feelings of deep depression. I think his
depression was normal.

Q: Which incident is funny in 'Attitude Is Altitude'? What makes it funny?

The idea of Nick showing the girl his torso, by making a 360 degree spin, makes the scene funny.
