Episode cast overview:


Laura has the time of her life when she is asked to dance at a party she and Rob are hosting. After the party, Buddy tells Rob that he better be careful as he may lose a wife since Laura has probably caught the show business bug once again. Rob doesn't believe so since she gave up dancing voluntarily when they got married and has never expressed any regret in doing so. So when Mel asks Rob if he thinks Laura wouldn't mind filling in for one of the dancers on the show for this week's show only, Rob has no qualms or hesitation in asking her. Much to his surprise and chagrin, Laura is more than excited to accept. After a rough week for Rob when he took over much of the domestic duties for which he has little to no aptitude, he has mixed feelings when Mel tells him that he wants to sign Laura for a full time contract. Rob has to decide whether to tell Laura the news, and if he does, he is just hoping that she'll choose being wife and mother over being a career dancer. Written by Huggo
