Storyline

Rob's parents bestow upon Laura a Petrie family heirloom -- a huge, garish gold brooch in the shape of the United States, with a jewel for each city where a male member of the family was born. Laura reluctantly accepts the brooch to keep the peace, but her embarrassment over it turns to horror when she accidentally drops it into the garbage disposal. Written by aldanoli

Quotes

Sam Petrie: Yeah, well, that little pin there tells the history of the whole Petrie family. Each diamond represents the birthplace of a male Petrie.
