'Melissa & Joey': Mel And Joe Discover They're Each Dating The Single Parent Of The Same Child (VIDEO)

Things got awkward on "Melissa & Joey" when the titular pair discovered that they were dating single parents with one very significant connection. They were single parents of the same little boy. But they were determined to make it work, despite the obvious friction between the mother and father.

At one point, Melissa and Joey took the kid to the park, leaving the parents to fight out their communication problems in the house. But while they were fighting, Mel and Joe were discovering that perhaps they weren't quite ready to take on parental roles.

Mel gave the boy an antique watch -- which he promptly threw down a grate -- just to make him like her. Then Joe had the brilliant idea to drop the kid down the grate to fetch the watch. There was only one slight problem. He couldn't reach far enough down to retrieve the kid.

Melissa Joan Hart took to Twitter during the episode to say that this was her favorite character she's ever portrayed. She also teased a possible hookup between Mel and her manny before the season ends.

Find out if they do by tuning in to "Melissa & Joey" on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC Family.
