Lord of the Cell
Dad Bob won a cell phone at work; the kids all want one since ages, but ma insists on the hated rule: when something can't benefit all five, none get it; Parker presses the point that only denies all of them all kinds of things, so pa tries an alternative: a week-long contest who scores most points by doing chores.
