The Goldbergs: “The Spencers Gifts” recap
In tonight’s episode of The Goldbergs, Barry and Erica get jobs at Spencer’s Gifts which makes Murray very happy, with the hopes that he won’t have to give his kids money anymore. Adam, meanwhile, gets hired at Challenges Arcade, his favorite place in the world which Beverly doesn’t like the idea of because she wants her baby boy to become a famous movie maker.
One of Adams tasks at the arcade is giving kids with A’s on their report cards quarters for games. This ends badly when two of the bullies from school show up with forged grades, forcing him to give them quarters. Panicked about losing all the money, Adam opens one of the games to take a few quarters to replace the ones he lost, causing them to all spill out and all the kids in the arcade to take them.
Barry and Erica spend the episode competing to see who can be the best employee and sell the most items. For being a bit of a screw up, Barry ends up in the lead which sparks jealousy in Erica. After the manager trusts Barry with the keys to the store, Erica tells him Chuck Norris is at the mall doing a book signing and that she’ll cover for him while he goes to meet him. Barry jumps at the opportunity and leaves Erica with the keys. Upon returning to the store, disappointed that Chuck Norris wasn’t there and that it was Maya Angelou instead and that she didn’t know anything about karate, Barry is scolded by the boss man for leaving the keys to Erica.
Adam films a commercial for the bullies of them at the arcade, which the manager ends up liking and agrees to let Adam keep his job if he can use the commercial to advertise for the arcade. Adam accepts and all is well.
Erica later apologizes to Barry, saying she was jealous because he was better at selling gifts than she was. She tells Barry that watching him at work made her realize that when he was passionate about something, he can do anything. It was a heartfelt moment and Barry even admits that for not being a good employee, she was a great sister.
After showing Beverly and Murray the commercial he filmed for the arcade which was going to be on TV, he reveals that the manager of Spencer’s Gifts wants him to film one for them as well. Beverly jumps for joy but is shocked when Adam tells her he wants to stay at the arcade because if it weren’t for the job, he wouldn’t have gotten his first real directing gig. Adam has a touching moment with Murray, who finally acknowledges that he may in fact be talented at making films.
