The Petrie and Helper families are heading off on an overnight camping and fishing trip. The only person not going is Laura, who is nursing a cold. Laura doesn't want to admit that she is nervous about staying alone in the house. As such, she even welcomes the company of Herschel, the Helper's myna bird. Millie, who came to the conclusion that the camping trip would be no fun without Laura, comes back to spend the evening with her best friend, which doesn't help as their collective jitteriness in being alone increases as each feeds off of the nervousness of the other. Laura and Millie try to deal with their frayed nerves about hearing all those little bumps in the night which they believe to be the worst. What could make the evening even worse is the early arrival home of Rob, who too eventually came down with Laura's cold. Written by
