Tom uses the fact of Eddie going to camp to have a romantic weekend with his girlfriend, Brenda. Tom however does not anticipate the continual distractions. First, a work emergency occurs. Since it looks like it will take a long time to resolve, Brenda decides to go home and wait for Tom to finish. She's right as Tom needs to pull an all nighter. Once Tom finishes his work duties and gets some sleep, second, Mrs. Livingston decides to come in for the weekend to clean up the kitchen. As soon as Tom politely sends Mrs. Livingston home, third, Joey Kelly shows up on Tom's doorstep. Joey's father, Joe, and his girlfriend Sherry went to Las Vegas for the weekend and assumed that Joey would stay with the Corbetts during their absence. When Joey called Eddie earlier on to ask, she didn't ask Eddie since Eddie wasn't going to be around. But rather than stay with a sitter, Joey wanted to stay with Tom since she was upset about her father and Sherry probably going to elope without telling her. Since Joe and Sherry were driving to Vegas, Tom has no way of getting in touch with them, and thus Tom has no other choice than to keep Joey for the weekend. When Tom calls Brenda with this latest news, ever gracious Brenda is no longer gracious and hangs up on Tom. Later, Sherry comes by to pick up Joey - she and Joe decided that in Joey's fragile state of mind, it better to take her along. Just then, Brenda drops by in a mood of forgiveness, until she sees Sherry, who she assumes is a fling of Tom's. After clearing up the confusion, Tom finally has his romantic, albeit shortened weekend with Brenda. It ends up being even shorter when Eddie arrives home unexpectedly early.- Written by Huggo
