- List of episodes of The Osbournes
This page is an episode guide to episodes of the reality television series "
There Goes the Neighborhood
The debut episode opens with a brief introduction of the family with a voice-over and scenes of each member, such as Jack and Kelly arguing, Sharon saying how she'll never be a
Mother Teresato her family, and Ozzy yelling " Rock 'n' Roll!" at the camera. Aside the introductions, the episode deals with the family moving into their new Beverly Hillshome. The family deal with problems that could arise from such a situation - finding valuable furniturebroken due to lousy packing and trying to set up the TV with no instructions ("Television/remote man: We give them the controls and then the owner figures out on their own how to use it. That's how easy it is". Later That Day..... "Ozzy: Weather in Afghanistan, 2000 degrees and cloudy. What the fuck am I doing? I'm stuck on the weather channel. AHHH!").
Ozzy appears on "
The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" as a performer. Kelly and Sharon come with Ozzy to the show, but Jack stays at home, watching a marijuanadocumentary instead. The family nanny, Melinda, repeatedly tells him off but is scolded at and insulted by Jack. After Ozzy's stint, he is told by Sharon backstage that perhaps he should reappear on the show as a talking guest.
The episode also shows Jack and Kelly's love-hate relationship, and how their constant fighting has added strain to the already complicated moving houses situation. While the Osbournes are still settling in, Kelly nearly sets the kitchen on fire, and Jack wanders around the background clad in pseudo Army gear in a daze. The two constantly fight, chasing each other around the house. The night after the move they decide to go out clubbing on
Sunset Strip, using fake IDs as both are underage, but usually their connection with Ozzy Osbourne gets them a free pass. Ozzy warns them not to drink or take drugs ("Because I'm fucking pissed off that I can't!") and to wear condomsif they have sex.
In spite of all the problems, Sharon is happy and content that they're finally 'home'.
Bark at the Moon
The episode starts with a brief scene of Ozzy and Sharon trying to turn on their new vacuum cleaner. Kelly lends a hand and switches on the vacuum, and Ozzy complains about the loudness of the vacuum.
The family's numerous dogs has been excreting far too many times in the house, and ruining valuable furniture in the process. Kelly buys a new cat, but Ozzy makes it clear he doesn't want anymore animals in the house. The worst dog is Lola, a bull dog which belongs to Jack. Lola constantly chews on furniture and has already demolished a valuable sofa. Sharon threatens Jack she'll give Lola away. Jack says Lola is demolishing the furniture because Kelly has bought a new cat into the house, and Lola felt ignored. Still Jack hides Lola from the wrath of Ozzy, who clearly wants to get rid of the dog.
Kelly gets busted for not stopping at a stop sign while driving, and is not far from having her license taken away. Elijah Wood and sister Hannah visit the Osbournes, and Lola does a massive 'crap' in Ozzy and Sharron's bedroom (Ozzy: "That fucking dog must have an extra tank in its arse. It's like plutonium turds"). Jack is ordered to clean it up. He goes ahead with a fresh start, but abandons it very soon ("THAT'S tough!"). Lola later urinates on the family sofas. Sharon threatens to give the dog away but later decides to hire a dog trainer. Later on, Martini urinates on the carpet, leading Ozzy to shout "Who pissed!!? Who pissed on my fucking carpet!?! That bastard fucking dog man. I'm going to throw you in the pool! It's a fucking terrorist man! It's fucking part of Bin Laden's gang!"
The dog trainer, Tamara, arrives and sees all the dogs. She listens to everyone's complaints about the dogs' toilet habits. She says that the dogs are spoiled rotten and untrained, and the Osbournes need to make themselves more important to the dogs' lives and have their needs taken care of. Tamara briefly trains Lola, and all seems well for the first day of dog training. However, as Tamara is leaving, Lola urinates on a carpet.
It is revealed Kelly has actually bought TWO cats, and Ozzy sees them. His yell of horror can be heard beyond Beverly Hills...
Like Father, Like Daughter
Ozzy's first solo album in six years is released, and Sharon has arranged numerous interviews and promotion gigs. She helps pick clothes for Ozzy to wear to an in-store autograph session at Tower Records, Sunset Strip. Ozzy feels very 'Ricky Martin' in his black leather outfit. Ozzy, Sharon and her Pomeranian dog Mimi arrive at the in-store gig in a stretch limousine. Kelly is there too, and is accosted by horny Ozzy fans. Ozzy signs autographs and takes photos with fans, including an entire squad of security guards!
Afterwards Ozzy and Sharon go to the KROQ radio station and have an interview. Jack listens to the interview over the radio in a friend's car. Ozzy and Sharon discuss their sex life, and how Ozzy has been using Viagra excessively because he had been 'shooting blanks'. Jack winces in embarrassment as the Osbournes go on to say how Ozzy would get 'hard' at inconvenient times when Sharon is sleeping and not interested.
Next, Ozzy takes a private flight to New York to do more promotional gigs and interviews. Meanwhile Kelly hangs around with a good family friend, Robert. She says they're only friends, although there appears to be close attraction between them. Kelly later takes her cat to the vet with Melinda the nanny. Melinda tells Kelly that Jack is going to a school camp, and Kelly seems to take delight in that.
On the day to go to camp, Melinda tries to wake up Jack. But Jack is very depressed for some unknown reason and it becomes a struggle for Melinda to get him up. Jack manages to get to the school bus in time and is off to camp, but Sharon is very worried that Jack is not alright and jokes he may need medication. Afterwards Sharon and Kelly take a private flight to New York to be with Ozzy.
Ozzy appears on a TRL show with daughter Kelly, who is told backstage not to swear on stage. Fortunately she listens and is quiet throughout the show. Ozzy meets up with P. Diddy and takes photos. P. Diddy says he's a huge fan of Ozzy Osbourne.
Kelly's 17th birthday is coming up and Sharon has arranged a themed party back at home. While going over the development of Kelly's party, Sharon gets a call from Jack's school that Jack is coming back from camp. Jack had been complaining that he didn't like the students (Kelly: "They make you, like, feed a tree before you feed yourself". Ozzy: "How the fuck you feed a tree?...What...you put a ham sandwich on the tree?"), he threw rocks at students and tents and he told the school captain to go "fuck himself".
Everyone arrives home just in time for Kelly's horror-themed party. The party features a contortionist and a tarot card reader. Ozzy is gobsmacked by the Gothic nature of the party and the loud dance music that Kelly likes ("The kind of music to bash your head in to!"). Jack brings a girlfriend into his room and admits he urinates frequently in bed and dribbles saliva a lot when he's asleep. He locks the door that night.
Morning after, Kelly reveals to Ozzy that she has a tattoo on her hip. Neither Ozzy or Jack are bothered, but Sharon is disappointed and says she's a very stupid person. Ozzy finishes the episode saying with advice about tattoos: "To be unique, DON'T get a tattoo. Because everybody else has got tattoos!... (Kelly's) tattoo isn't THAT bad. I thought she was going to show me a large fucking eagle tattoo on her arse!"
Won't You Be Thy Neighbor?
Kelly complains that elder sister Aimee had booked her a gynecologist appointment ("You haven't done anything, its your fucking daughter. I just got a call--when I'm in Tiffany--from some woman telling me how I should prepare my vagina for my gynecologist appointment tomorrow. She booked me a fucking gynecologist appointment"!). Ozzy thinks it's a practical joke ("All you have to say is fuck off when the vagina doctor calls"), but Kelly says that Aimee also tried to get her to go to a dentist and get a new car ("And I said to her, 'Aimee. My teeth, my car, my vagina, my business'"). Ozzy wonders if Kelly has been messing with boys, but nanny Melinda insists Ozzy she hasn't and there's nothing wrong with Kelly.
The Osbournes have new neighbors, and they had been playing loud European dance music late at night. Sharon confronts them over the fence and tells them to go in their "perfectly big house" to play their music. The neighbors refuse to go inside, and Ozzy declares war. One night the neighbors play camp songs, and Jack finally has enough. He plays
Meshuggahon full volume to upset the neighbors. No such luck. Although it wakes Kelly who comes running out of the house and throwing tantrums.
Next, Jack and Sharon start throwing ham across the fence ("This is a picture of his wife's cunt" [referring to the ham] ). This catches the attention of the police, and they tell Sharon they are powerless to do anything about the loud noise UNLESS they are there when it happens. They also warn the family not to throw "the good food" over the fence, and to call them when the neighbors start playing up again.
Ozzy, who had been sleeping through all this, awakes and grabs a piece of firewood and throws it over the fence. Something smashes. The cops come back! And Ozzy runs for dear life.
Tour of Duty
Ozzy is working out with a personal trainer in preparation for an upcoming tour. Sharon talks with a friend over the phone saying that the original name for Ozzy's tour was going to be 'Black Christmas', but was inappropriate because of the 9/11 attacks and its aftermath, so they renamed it 'Merry Mayhem'. Sharon adds that Ozzy will come on stage in a sleigh that will go around the stadium.
At Divine Recordings where Sharon works, she goes over the merchandise for the 'Merry Mayhem' tour, working out prices ("How much do women pay for knickers?"). Meanwhile, Jack is starting his own label under Divine Recordings.
On a day off, Sharon and Kelly go on yet another mad shopping spree at
Saks Fifth Avenue, and loses Ozzy's credit card in the process. Panic-stricken, Kelly takes the blame for the missing card and frantically searches her car and finally finds it under the driver's seat - in the middle of the night.
The next day, Ozzy goes to band rehearsal for the tour, warning that guitarist Zakk plays louder than Satan. Later, he does a Moulin Rouge skit for more promotional purposes, totally clad in Christina Aguilera-style bustier, frilly stockings and scary white hair. He complains how he hates making music videos, because the crew goes about as if they're making a major motion picture.
Ozzy prepares to leave for tour, and Sharon remarks that he finds it very stressful when embarking on a tour. Jack won't come with Ozzy on his tour, and stays at home to build up his label. Ozzy and Sharon leave for Tucson for band rehearsal. During the rehearsal, Sharon shows to Ozzy all the special effects for the shows:
:*A big 12-barrel cannon:*A sleigh that spurts snow from the back:*People dressed up as Santa's helpers in whorish wear:*Sculpture of Santa hung on a cross:*machine spurting bubbles.
Ozzy is angry by all the special side affects, thinking it will distract the fans from his music. He refuses to perform two nights in a row with the silly special effects ("Bubbles! Oh come on Sharon! I'm fucking Ozzy Osbourne, I'm the Prince of fucking Darkness. Evil! Evil! What's fucking evil about a shitload of bubbles!?"). He says Sharon only cares about the money rolling in. Somehow Sharon persuades him to do the two shows anyway, and they become a success.
Trouble in Paradise
Ozzy has well gone into his tour, traveling across the USA. Sharon had returned home and says she'll reunite with Ozzy in Houston because she misses him so much. Kelly complains about her twisted ankle after falling into a hole the exact same size as her foot.
When Sharon and Ozzy reunite in Houston, Ozzy says he had injured his leg during a concert. Back at the house, Jack and nanny Melinda are at each other's throats. Melinda blames Jack's moodiness on him being tired and sticking to a busy schedule, which is hardly true. Jack parties out late, orders pizza in early morning, sleeps in, and plays games. Melinda calls Ozzy and Sharon and says that Jack has left the house and hasn't returned for hours. She's worried that Jack might be dead out there. Ozzy contacts Jack on his mobile. He tells Jack it's no such big deal to apologize to Melinda for being bratty. Jack refuses to apologize anyway, not wanting to appear sensitive and mushy.
Ozzy mixes alcohol and whores with the pain medication for his foot injury and winds up stoned. He tries to take Lola for a walk, but Sharon sends Jack to retrieve him. The Osbournes suffer through a miserable Thanksgiving. Ozzy works on the video for his song "Dreamer," and adamantly refuses to wear a bat coat. Kelly grows frustrated when the media continually mentions Jack's work with Epic Records, as she feels they are implying that she isn't doing anything with her life.
She angrily insists that she actually discovered the band that Jack is helping, and that he hasn't given her any credit. She turns to Ozzy for sympathy, but he isn't quite sure what he wants her to say. Ozzy grows fed up with the family and insists on returning to the tour alone. Sharon, Jack and Kelly decide to surprise him in Chicago for his birthday. They hide from him until his birthday because they fear he would become angry if he saw them before his birthday dinner. When the event finally arrives, Ozzy is surprised and pleased to see his family.
Jack invites his friend Jason Dill, a professional skateboarder, to stay at the house after he is kicked out of the home of yet another of his friends. Ozzy and Sharon are more than a little put off by the fact that Jack just lets Dill come over without telling them, let alone asking for permission. Dill is obnoxious and slovenly, and creeps out Ozzy and others with his habit of always scratching his head. Dill also smokes and drinks a lot, and Sharon is annoyed to find a bottle of Jack Daniels with his belongings.
She decides that she is going to urinate in the bottle, but Kelly pleads with her not to do this. Dill accidentally starts a fire in the kitchen, doing damage to a pan and the stove top. Jack is irritated by the fact that Dill is the only one who doesn't seem to be helping clean up the mess, although Dill points out that he would only make things worse. Ozzy and Sharon finally persuade Jack to ask Dill to leave the house. Jack is upset when Sharon and Ozzy give away Lola because she keeps leaving horrific messes around the house. Jack tries to make arrangements to spend time with the dog on weekends, but Ozzy finally agrees to let Lola come back to the house, provided that Jack looks after her.
A Very Ozzy Christmas
The Osbournes are packing their stuff at the Peninsula Hotel in New York, and Sharon tells Ozzy and Jack that one of their tour truck drivers had an accident the other day. He was getting a blow job from a hooker he had picked up, and was driving in the nude. Later they are on a tour bus driving around New York, and Sharon is informed that Michael, their security guard, had been arrested for robbing a house behind theirs. Ozzy immediately suspects that Michael may have stolen his jewelry. He tells Sharon to check his possessions and if anything is missing, he'll "whack the cunt".
Ozzy embarks on his last promotional concert for his new album in New York. Back at the hotel, Ozzy is flabbergasted when he sees all the designer branded shopping bags Sharon has, and explains that as a poor child growing up in Birmingham, he'd get only a rotten sock with some fruit and pennies in it. Ozzy becomes worried that they'll never be able to fit all the shopping bags onto their private plane. Ozzy receives a James Brown doll that plays "I Feel Good". Ozzy repeatedly presses the play button then starts dancing along with the doll. Sharon describes the perfect Christmas where the family will have dinner together, then the kids can go out while she and Ozzy stay inside with the pets and have a nice, quiet evening. Ozzy says she can keep on wishing it because that will never happen.
Ozzy, Sharon and Jack return home, managing to get all the bags onto the plane. When Christmas finally arrives, presents are exchanged, and the Osbournes are paid a visit by Ozzy's son from his first marriage, techno DJ Louis Osbourne. Ozzy gets a framed photo of his mother when she sixteen and is touched ("Fucking nicest thing"). Finally they prepare for the family Christmas dinner. Ozzy makes the gravy, and is exceedingly proud of it. Jack and Kelly get to the dining table first and already began to eat before everybody else gets there. Finally everybody sits down. There is a voice-over from Kelly saying how difficult it is to have a Christmas dinner and not fight.
Ozzy repeats: "We did really great with that gravy!" and Sharon sighs: "We're gonna hear about this fucking gravy for the next year". Ozzy opens a champagne bottle, and almost breaks something when the cork flies across the room. Sharon starts talking about Christina Aguilera's album 'My Kind Of Christmas' ("When I heard it, I wanted to SCRATCH myself. I wanted to ABUSE myself"). There is more bitchy talk from Kelly and Sharon about Christina Aguilera, until Kelly sees Jack flip her the finger for no reason. Kelly tells Jack to "get that huge stick of your arse. It will help everybody". Jack thought Kelly said dick, not stick. It is mayhem as the kids yell "dick" and "stick" back and forth. Kelly pouts, gets up and leaves the dining room, while the bemused Sharon cries: "You're such a drama queen... you're NOT going out... because it's FUCKING CHRISTMAS!"
After the dinner, Jack's and Kelly's girl friends, all whores, come over for a visit and talk with the Osbournes in the sitting room. One of the girl friends got caught for smoking weed, and Kelly reveals she was suspected by Sharon of smoking it. She goes on to say that Sharon promised not to be mad if Kelly admitted she smoked weed, and when she finally did, Sharon "went fucking crazy" and called every parent from the school directory and asked them if their kid had been giving Kelly the weed. The conversation takes a random turn when one of the girl friends comments on Ozzy's red streaks, saying it doesn't look good. Kelly slaps the girl's knee, complaining how rude that is. "It's off! It's now here! The Christmas fight is finally here!" says Ozzy and Sharon. Kelly bitches to Sharon she wouldn't go to her friend's father and say: "I don't like your baldness. You should get a fucking toupee". Sharon nearly falls off the couch laughing.
Jack gets a pocket knife from one of his friends for Christmas. He plans to go out with it, but Sharon and Ozzy warns if he goes out with an army-style haircut, a tee with 'Cocaine' on it and holding a pocket knife, he would get arrested by the police. Ozzy seizes the knife and hides in the pantry, but Jack quickly finds it and tries to exit the house. Ozzy gets angry and threatens to "bust his arse" if he gets picked up by the police. This time Jack listens and gives over the knife. Ozzy hides it in a fruit bowl.
The day after Christmas, Sharon and Kelly meet up with Michael, their security guard. Michael explains how he had never been in the house behind theirs and never took anything. He adds that he had his son with him when the police arrested him. They pulled their guns on both of them, and they threw Michael in county jail over the night. When the police found out he did not do anything wrong, they apologized. Michael quits his job as the security guard and is given some Christmas gifts. This strange incident ends the episode.
Dinner with Ozzy
The episode starts with Ozzy sitting in his dining room and enjoying a very well prepared Dinner he says that he's always been Ozzy Osbourne and that is real name is John Michael Osbourne. He doesn't know how a typical American family lives. Then we cut to a scene where a cat is running wild and it gets stuck behind a mirror. Ozzy tries to get the cat down by climbing on the mirror and hitting it with a feather duster. Kelly and Sharon scream throughout the entire situation and the cat runs away after Ozzy shakes the mirror.
We go back to Ozzy who starts to talk about Sharon; how she is the leader of the family. Ozzy says that, "He is the monkey, and she plays the tunes." The next scene is Sharon offering Ozzy a breath strip. Ozzy looks at it and first says it is cyanide. Sharon tricks Ozzy into telling him that it's gum. Ozzy then realizes that it's horrible.
Back to the table and Ozzy says that it's amazing that he lives in Beverly Hills and that to be a parent, you need to be "rigorously honest". The next scene shows Sharon snuggling up with Ozzy while Jack tries to watch TV. When it comes to being honest and secrets Ozzy says that he's very very open. The next scene shows Ozzy and Kelly peeling potatoes in the kitchen and Ozzy talks about being put in jail for stealing. Then there is a scene about being invited on a cruise ship that Kelly doesn't want to go on. She says that you can shit on a cruise line or an airplane. Back to Ozzy, saying that he got into music to make his parents proud because he wasn't very good at school. He also admitted that he's dyslexic and has a short attention span.
Ozzy then starts to talk about Jack, how he "can be a good boy...sometimes. And compared to me he's an angel." Then Ozzy says when he was Jack's age he was drinking heavily, smoking marijuana and thinking what I am doing. Jack is then shown walking around with a rifle and wearing army gear. Kelly then complains that "15 year old boys shouldn't be playing with rifles and knives" She then brings up an old situation that Jack had shot Kelly with a pellet gun six year earlier and she still has a grudge. Ozzy then briefly talks on how much Kelly and Jack fight but that they should outgrow it. Ozzy is given his dessert and he says that he is proud of giving his children an education. The next scene though comes up and it's revealed that Jack hasn't gotten up to go to school. Ozzy walks into Jack's room, wakes him up, and tells him that he needs to go to school.
Ozzy then talks about Sharon not liking cooking. This brings up a scene with Kelly complaining to her mom that she doesn't cook. Ozzy then says that the first thing that attracted him to Sharon was her laugh. Then a scene is shown with Sharon and Kelly talking about their chests. Ozzy then comes back and says that Kelly doesn't take after her mom and she definitely doesn't take after Ozzy.
Ozzy comes back again and says that people think he lives in a Bavarian castle like a bat, but he does chores like everyone else. He is then shown grinding coffee, collecting firewood, and making microwave popcorn. Then Ozzy says that sometimes he feels invisible. How he could be talking but no one would listen to him. He then says that people can't understand what he says because of his English accent and when he gets excited he stammers. Then he says if he could be anybody for one day, he would be Paul McCartney or John Lennon because they lit a spark under him musically. The next scene shows Ozzy receiving his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Ozzy then says that he's not proud of being a drug addict, dyslexic, biting the head off a bat, but that he's a guy with real feelings. Ozzy then finishes his dinner with a cup of tea and a montage of scenes from the season is shown. Ozzy then says, "That's the way we are. We're The Osbournes, and I fucking love it."
Catching Up with the Osbournes

Sharon then shows Melinda a gold filling that she had accidentally swallowed.
Ozzy then announces that he and Sharon have been invited to Washington DC for a press dinner at the White House. Ozzy doesn't know how to handle it and he doesn't know proper etiquette, he's a street guy. Sharon helps Ozzy pick out a watch to wear.

Jack then tells us that he had a part in Kelly getting signed to a record contract and Kelly discusses that she doesn't want a chick band.
Ozzy and Sharon leave to go to Washington and Sharon tells Ozzy that she got President Bush some cuff-links as a gift. Ozzy asks how is she going to give The President a gift. Ozzy says that he's the President...he's not allowed to accept gifts. They arrive in Washington and drive past the Washington Monument and Lincoln Monument. Sharon admits that she doesn't know who President Bush is and that Ozzy is starting to get stage fright.
Back home, Jack continues his playful attitude with fans and the sprinklers. Kelly then goes to rehearsal and she steals Jack's spritz bottle. Jack tells Kelly, "Just because you have a hit song doesn't mean you can steal my spritz bottle."
Back in Washington, Ozzy and Sharon are getting ready for their dinner and Sharon says that Ozzy looks like Harrison Ford. Ozzy says he looks more like Glenn Close. He then calls Sharon a cunt, but then quickly apologizes. He then looks into the camera and says, "I found out you can say anything to a woman. But you mention the "C" word and you suddenly get this feeling of death come over you." At the dinner President Bush says, "What a fantastic audience we have tonight. Washington power brokers, celebrities, Hollywood stars, Ozzy Osbourne." Then causes Ozzy to stand up with a big smile on his face and the crowd applauds him.
Ozzy then flies to England and Sharon joins Kelly and Jack. At the movie awards, all the attention goes to Kelly, while Jack is on a quest to find Natalie Portman.

What Goes Up...
The episodes begins with Ozzy describing his TV to the production crew ("I've had this TV for 7 years, this is how it works. Power on - it comes on. Simple clicker, volume control - piece of piss. Works every time.... what the fuck's this? What am I doing?").

He had already been going through detox, and the news of Sharon's illness has made a difficult situation much worse.
A family friend/employee tries to help Ozzy by helping him get into yoga and reading him poetry, but Ozzy is decidedly less than impressed. Some people try to talk to him about how religion helped them overcome their addictions, but he does not want any part of it.

The Ozz Man and the Sea

She is upset when her bag is lost (apparently seized by security because of concerns over her gun-shaped pin), leaving her without any extra underwear. She first visits Germany, where she deals with several adoring fans and tries to fake her way through a radio interview conducted in German ("That's amazing. I always don't know what to say"). Kelly then goes to England to perform "Papa Don't Preach" on Top of the Pops. Jack heads to North Carolina to film a guest spot for "
Sharon is depressed about the fact that everyone is away at the same time. Ozzy tries to cheer her up by building a fire outside the beach house so that she can spend some time outside. The fire department gives him some advice on building a pit for the fire, but the ocean is not very cooperative ("Fuck! Go to Alaska! No, no, no, no. You fucking asshole ocean! No!"). When the fire finally gets going, Ozzy gives Sharon a good laugh when he tries to catch a fish in the ocean--and ends up falling on his butt.
Beauty and the Bert

Dont you get that from virg-, virginia, virginial, Venereal disease mum. Venereal disease! Why do I keep thinking fucking virginial?"), while Jack thinks that Bert is weird because he professed his love to Kelly after only a few weeks of dating. Kelly warns that she will run off to Vegas and marry before the end of the year. Sharon actually encourages this, saying that she needs some excitement. Sharon worries about the situation, but Ozzy encourages her to relax and just focus on living one day at a time.
Sharon wants Bert to stay at the house (and sleep in Jack's room) when his band comes to town. Kelly refuses to bring him over to meet the family because she fears they will threaten or embarrass him. She finally tries to sneak him into the house, but Sharon catches them. She asks Bert about his nickname, leaving Kelly mortified.

mells Like Teen Spirits
Sharon makes amends with her father after not speaking with him for over twenty years. Kelly keeps going out and getting drunk every night, despite Sharon's pleas.

Meow Means No!

P.Diddy's mother-in-law, and embarrasses Kelly by refusing to stop talking about it. Ozzy and Kelly listen to some of her songs together. He tells her that she has done well and expresses his pride. Meanwhile, Jack has problems with a band that he is trying to sign, as the guitar player is very reluctant to hand over the demos.
Cleanliness Is Next to Ozzyness
Ozzy grows increasingly tired of the dogs and their tendency to defecate in the house. Because Sharon's immune system is very weak due to the chemo, he fears that all of the germs will cause her to develop an infection. He constantly cleans everything and tries to get everyone to wear gloves around Sharon. He also urges Sharon not to let the dogs on the bed, but she ignores him. Ozzy meets with a contractor about plans to build an outdoor kennel for all of the dogs, but Sharon quickly kills this idea.
Jack and Sharon argue when she insists on going out to dinner. He believes she should rest, but she is feeling well and can't stand to be cooped up in the house. Sharon takes Robert shopping for furniture for his new room. She explains that Robert was a good friend to Aimee and Kelly after the Osbournes moved from England, so they have taken him in after his mother's death (from colon cancer). Jack bonds with Robert and shows him how to make one of his favorite treats, beans on toast. Sharon goes to the doctor. At a special dinner that night, she announces that her cancer is in remission and that she will finish her treatment in January.
Viva Ozz Vegas
The Osbournes pack their bags for Sin City as Ozzy prepares for a concert and Kelly celebrates her 18th birthday. Before heading to Vegas, Kelly discovers that she has been made to sign a contract with The Venetian Resort Hotel Casino as the hotel clearly states that if anyone is seen to be drinking underage, then they would all be thrown out of the hotel.
The family charter a private jet to Vegas. When Kelly and friend Sara head out for a wild night on the town, Jack gets left behind due to the fact that he's still not of legal age. Jack is deeply annoyed by this as he had been told by a friend that they would all be meeting "some Penthouse chicks" while in Vegas. As Jack watches television with some friends, Kelly and Sara run wild. Shocking onlookers with a revealing table dance before falling to the floor in front of a disapproving Ozzy and Sharon, Sara horrifies onlookers shortly before Kelly and Jack go toe-to-toe.
My Big Fat Jewish Wedding
Sharon and Ozzy decide to renew their wedding vows at a hotel on New Year's Eve. Kelly is to serve as flower girl, with Jack and Robert as ushers. Kelly objects to the fact that the ceremony will be conducted by a rabbi; although Sharon's father is Jewish, Kelly insists that a person cannot be Jewish unless their mother is (Sharon: "Excuse me, my husband is circumcised"). Ozzy is not at all enthused about the ceremony. Kelly and Sarah are less than impressed with Jack's latest female "friend," particularly because she once dated Jack's best friend.
Sharon catches the girl in bed with Jack, and later finds condoms in the room. She tries to encourage Jack to settle down and find a steady girlfriend, but he would rather juggle several girls because the idea of a relationship freaks him out. Ozzy and Jack have various body parts plucked, shaved and waxed before the wedding. Sharon recalls the couple's first wedding night, when Ozzy passed out drunk in the hallway.
Ozzy insists that he will not drink this time. Sharon recites her own vows, leaving Ozzy clearly touched. The hotel hosts a celebrity-filled reception. Sharon is especially excited about the presence of Justin Timberlake. She asks him to marry Kelly. Ozzy gets completely plastered. History repeats itself, as Ozzy falls asleep on a couch and Sharon laments that she has again been cheated out of her wedding night.
What a Boy Wants
The Osbournes struggle to come up with a gift for Jack's birthday. Kelly strongly objects when Jack dances with Christina Aguilera, whom Kelly had previously insulted on a number of occasions. Kelly complains that Jack is disrespecting her by hanging around someone that she dislikes, and insists that she would never do this to Jack. Jack tries to explain that Christina actually had nice things to say about Kelly. The kids get into a brawl, which Sharon must break up.
Meanwhile, Ozzy visits the dentist and gets intoxicated from the nitrous oxide, and he appears to take the rinse water and pour s it over his ear. The family visits a medieval-themed club to celebrate Jack's birthday, and buys him a knight suit. Jack tries out his new sword by dueling with a buddy in the street.
Flea's a Crowd
The pets suffer from a flea infestation, creating havoc around the house and leaving everyone itchy and miserable. Kelly prepares to go on a trip to Philadelphia to visit her boyfriend, Bert. Sharon does not want her to go away alone (she prefers her to have security at all times), and drives Kelly crazy as she somewhat jokingly nags her. Sharon has Robert and Jack move a heavy statue out to the garden, but never seems satisfied by the location. She forces them to move it several times.
The house is redecorated, and Ozzy finds himself extremely bewildered by a giant statue of a hand. Kelly goes against her parents' wishes and gets a nose ring, which Sharon wants her to remove. Kelly later mistakes the nose ring for something on her nose and accidentally flicks it out.
Run Ozzy Run
Ozzy continues to work out with his trainer, Pete, who Ozzy jokes may be a robot because he never stops talking, sweats, eats or goes to the bathroom. Ozzy is to run five miles on his 54th birthday. He runs almost two miles before he is stopped by a foot injury. The family throws a party for Ozzy's birthday, complete with a fireworks display by Jack and Robert. Ozzy eventually tries to run the five miles again, and succeeds this time. Meanwhile, Ozzy has problems with his new car, as the voice recognition system can't understand a word he says (Ozzy: "Fuck you!" Ozzy’s new car: "Pardon me?" Ozzy’s new car: "Would you like to re-record your message"? Ozzy: "Yeah, fuck off").
Fists of Fury
Ozzy and Sharon prepare to leave for a few days on a Hawaiian vacation. Ozzy tells Jack that he is no longer to have people over at the house after 11 PM. Kelly is afraid that Jack will turn the house into a nonstop party while their parents are gone. Sharon promises to talk to him, but this does little to reassure Kelly. Jack has a lot of people over late at night, and they soon begin using the pool and making a lot of noise.
Kelly becomes very upset because she is tired of Jack and his friends keeping her from sleeping. He refuses to listen to Melinda when she asks them to be quiet. When Kelly confronts Jack, he dares her to hit him, so she nails him in the face. They get into a fight, and the staff has to pry them apart. Kelly calls Sharon for sympathy, but Jack gets on the line and complains about the cuts to the face he sustained from the punch.
Kelly feels Jack deserved what he got; Melinda agrees somewhat, but warns Kelly to be careful about her temper. Sharon and Ozzy come home, and Sharon teases Kelly about the incident. Kelly and Jack quickly patch things up, as they hang out in the kitchen and share some Easy Mac.
Mama, I'm Staying Home
Ozzy decides to stay home while Sharon, Melinda and the kids travel to New York. Sharon hopes that Ozzy and Robert will spend more time together, but the two mostly avoid one another because they have little in common. Robert spends a lot of time listening to music and dancing in his guest house, and Ozzy cannot get one of the songs out of his head. Ozzy buys a lot of kitchenware, and spends over $600 on candy for Sharon. Meanwhile, Melinda learns that she is pregnant, and annoys Kelly by talking about her pregnancy nonstop. Kelly also gets into a playful wrestling match with Sharon.
Sharon receives a peace offering from one of her folk-singing neighbors, but the neighbors on the other side begin to drive the family crazy by playing tennis at all hours of the day and night. Jack tries playing drums outside, and Ozzy blasts the loudest, most obnoxious music he can find. However, nothing seems to have an effect on the neighbors.
Jack shoots at the court with his paintball gun, leading to a visit from the police. Sharon suspects that the neighbors are responsible when three of the Osbournes' cats disappear, although the coyotes seem the more likely culprit. Kelly brings home another cat, but Ozzy isn't very happy about it.
A Little Ditty About Jack and Brieann
Jack visits the home of singer/actress Courtney Love. He begins dating Kurt Cobain's sister Brieann, who is staying with Courtney. They get along very well, and Jack teaches her some of his favorite recipes, including beans on toast. Sharon is touched to learn that Jack has a tattoo of the word "Mom" with a heart around it. (He got it right after she was diagnosed with cancer.) Ozzy tries out some song lyrics on Sharon, who is busy shopping at the time. He later plays a demo of the new song for Jack and Brieann. Ozzy is bewildered by a rotisserie turkey as it cooks in the kitchen.
After 17 years of waiting, Ozzy fulfills his dream of taking Jack on a fishing trip. They get in trouble with the captain for throwing firecrackers at the pelicans. Everyone on board places bets on who can catch the largest fish, and a friend of Jack's wins the contest. Ozzy winds up catching some tin cans and a bird. He also momentarily mistakes a seal for a shark. Nevertheless, they both have a great time on the trip.
Bye Bye Babies
Jack and Robert fly to England to spend time at the Osbournes' other home. Jack shows Robert the house and introduces him to the family's oldest dog, Sugar.

On another night, he attacks Minnie; and is horrified to wake up and discover that he has killed her. He flees the house with the body. A devastated Sharon retreats to the family's Malibu home to escape memories of Minnie.
Ozzy is left all alone, with no one to help him fix the television. Suddenly, the director yells, "Cut!" Ozzy rejoins his family (including Minnie) in another room, and it is revealed that this episode has been scripted. Everyone pretends that the entire series has been fake: Ozzy expresses relief at no longer having to say the f-word, and tells someone to pick up the "fake" dog doo.
