Vada Sultenfuss has a holiday coming up, and an assignment: to do an essay on someone she admires and has never met. She decides she wants to do an assignment on her mother, but quickly realizes she knows very little about her. She manages to get her father to agree to let her go to LA to stay with her Uncle Phil and do some research on her mother. Once in LA, she finds herself under the protection of Nick, the son of Phil's girlfriend, who at first is very annoyed at losing his holidays to escort a hick *girl* around town. However, he soon becomes more involved in the difficult search. Written by

Did You Know?
in an earlier scene, Vada and her family were watching "the Partridge Family". when Vada and her father go bowling she mentions missing Archie Bunker, however, in 1974 (when the movie is set) The Partridge Family
and All in the Family
were shown at the same time on the same night, so she'd already missed Archie Bunker while she was watching The Partridge Family. See more
[narration to audience
I remember before I was born, wounded up like a fur ball in the highly overrated fetal position, luckily I'm not claustrophobic, but on rainy days I still felt a tightness in my left shoulder. So now that my stepmother's pregnant, I understand what the baby's going through, and I'm not jealous at all, really, not at all.
