Thoughts on the finale?

As much as I loved this show I have to say the finale was weak. I was fine with it until Tracy got sick and Ted asked Robin out. Although the kids were right the whole story was about him having the hots for Robin and their mother wasn't in it much.

I loved the Ghostbusters reference and iirc Tracy was the name of the stripper? from the first season, when the kids heard that they freaked out so it was a nice tie in in that sense.

IMHO the episode could have ended and I would've been just fine with everything except the mom dying and asking Robin out bit.
