Archie and Edith are just settling into their blissful life after Mike and Gloria have moved to California when, out of the blue, Edith's step-cousin Floyd drops in for a visit, along with his nine year-old daughter Stephanie. Edith is glad to see them but Archie knows that it is only a matter of time before Floyd will ask for money or some other outrageous favor. He's right, the favor turns out to be that he wants Archie and Edith to look after Stephanie for two weeks (three weeks tops) while he takes care of some business. Archie refuses, against Edith's objections and Floyd and Stephanie appear to drive away, but they are surprised to find that he has left Stephanie behind. Written by

"John"? Couldn't you have taught her to say "toilet" like educated people?
I try the best I can.
Well you failed.
