Treated Like a Man......

Mark had several different ideas of what he wanted to be when he grew up. I though it would be fun to name some of these.

You treated me more grown up when I was 10 and we first bought our place, so give me a little credit. I helped you out of some real scraps you got into, plum saved your life in the past so remember I'm a man not a boy."

On a separate note, whenever they portray Lucas doing something that I don't think he would have, I ask myself what Chuck would have done, and then you have your answer. :grin:

I'll get off my soap box now, because after all, it is still the best show to ever grace our tvs!

I guess that's what writing is for- you keep on going Past season 5 and Mark is acting more grown up and for the most part- being treated like a grown up....

They had him playing 2 years under his actual age, but I know what you mean.
