And to be added to this i'm agreeing with SBF about the exaggerated and overacted reaction of both Mac and Kate for sam's trying to calm down the kids by telling them it will all be O.K and nothing would happend to them.
That would be because you don't have a frame of reference for what was going on historically in this episode. I was born a bit after the Cuban Missile Crisis so I didn't actually experience the fear that came along with it but I was raised during the era of the Cold War. It was a time when you honestly didn't know if nuclear war was going to erupt between the US and the USSR. I can assure you, the USSR was not looked up on kindly by the US. The reaction of Mac and his wife is not exaggerated for what they're going through. It's right on track with what it should be at that point in time.
