Eddie gets a new second best friend - Tom will always be his best friend - by the name of Max, who Eddie wants to spend time with when best friend Tom needs to do his adult things. Tom finds out that Max's mother, Betty Kelly, is a single parent, which makes Mrs. Livingston think that Eddie is once again "mother shopping". On Eddie's urging, Tom invites Max over to stay for the weekend, and in turn invites Betty over for dinner on a pseudo blind date. She ends up being everything Eddie explained - beautiful with warm round eyes - and what Tom imagined, but she's also African-American. Eddie and Max have a tiff to start the evening, but Betty and Tom have a great evening from start to finish (except for the burnt dinner). Written by
