Storyline

While Carol and all six of the kids are at the supermarket, they are obviously being spied on by a strange man. He ends up being Skip Farnum, a television commercial director, who wants to use the entire family for a TV ad for Safe laundry detergent. Excited by the prospect of being famous actors, they agree to do it, that is until Mike, who learns that they don't actually use Safe. Wanting to keep their integrity, he insists that they do a wash off between their existing detergent, Best, and Safe, before ultimately agreeing. Even if Safe comes out on top and they decide to do the commercial, Mike in particular is still apprehensive if only because they're not actors, and he doesn't want to come off looking stupid in a public setting. So they ask for the advice of a friend of a friend, an actor named Myrna Carter. Will Myrna's advice change the fundamental nature of why Skip was attracted to the family in the first place?
