While Oliver makes plans to get the farm in working order, Lisa travels to New York to pack up their furniture. After she heads off, the locals assume Lisa has walked out on him and offer their condolences; they aren't interested in the true story. While she's in the city, Oliver's mother connects her with an architect who designs an extravagant country club rather than a simple farmhouse. Written by Jay Phelps <>
