Storyline

Because dad Steven has to be in Washington for PBS on the day of Alex's 18th birthday, ma throws him a surprise party a few days early. On his big day, Alex fails to 'pass on putting out the trash to the younger generation' and declines a restaurant dinner because he planned with his mates Neil and Doug to attend Camelot Inn in West Virginia, where 18 is legal majority. Elyse blatantly forbids it, and when Alex's mates' taunting lures him along anyway -pretending to be pilots, about to invade Canada- she goes get him back right there, publicly. Alex is beyond furious for days, yet they end up talking it trough... Written by KGF Vissers
