#1: This reminds me that Justin was like the character who moved the most during the series, while Brian didn't move at all. Nearly all important characters had moved to another house, some more than once. Heck even Chris Hobbs got himself a new house to live. I kinda wanted Brian to move at least once, as much as I loved the loft. Btw pretty Daphne was so tiny, she needed more unhealthy food.
#2: I'd be lying if I say I don't feel this. That's exactly what it feels like to be separated from the one you (I) love, even temporarily. Can't Brian just stay there? Okay he can't, but still. Make him stay!
